4th House

Astrology is amazing. It is a way to understand who we are, where we come from and where we are most likely to go. When it comes to the 4th house, this house is about the home, your family, storage areas, real estate, emotions comfort as well as fulfillment, your mother, and your roots. This house is under the horizon along with the 2nd house to the 12th house. Houses about the horizon are 8-12.

This house correlates with the sign Cancer, the Moon is the ruler of the fourth house, with water as the element related to it. The 4th house is an angular house with a lot of energy in the form of the cardinal sign Cancer. This angular house makes the backbone of your chart and is where you can find the IC or imum coeli latin for the bottom of the sky referring back to below the horizon. Planets here shows how you related to those around you what attributes to your emotional stability, comforts and the quality of your family. Signs here gives a layout of how you are internally, in an emotional sense.

Going through the personal planets in this house meaning the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars. You will see these playing out almost as if you have a Cancer Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars. Sun in the 4th house is like have a Sun/Moon conjunction. You are in touch with your emotions and identify with your roots and family. Though, you will have to make a conscious effort to put out the positive aspects of the moon because any planet close to the Sun combust. Sun in the 4th is not Sun conjunct Moon, but you will see a lot of similarities. Moon in the 4th leads you to be true to your self emotionally, you can understand the emotions of others well and are more receptive than most concerning feelings making you a bit psychic. This is a suitable placement for the Moon overall. Mercury in the 4th house tells you are comfortable or are learning about emotional communicating. Speaking with women, your mother, being about to comfort others with what you say or right is a skill you have or can acquire. You will have a knack for having skill in relation to the 4th house meaning you can be a chief, a fisherman, scuba diver, security, dealing with securities, or history. This placement is like Mercury/Moon conjunction though not to the same extreme. Venus in the 4th house shows someone with a mother or family who are beautiful, money savvy or have really strong values. Mars here is another thing entirely. This creates a lot of energy competitions and arguments in the home life or with the mother and family. Though, it can lead to someone who has learned emotional strength. Also, someone who is comfortable as the leader. This leads someone to go after things relating to the 4th house like real property, learning about your history, etc.

The 4th house and the 10th are on the same axis. Where the 4th house is the root, the 10th is the top of the tree. The fourth house is the bottom of the chart, the 10th house is the top of the natal chart, the highest you may go. They are two sides of the same coin. Though it tells you that emotions, reactions, and family/personal matters should stay at home. Where the 10th house is how you should behave with those in the outside world, and your career.

First House in astrology, Houses!

First House in astrology

The first astrological house is an angular house. This is the native to the zodiac Ares and is ruled by Mars. The element associated with the first house is fire. The first house is the house of self and where we can find the ascendant. The ascendant in a natal chart is the sign that was rising on the horizon during the time of birth, and it directs a person’s life path.

Planets in the first house attribute to your personality, and your first impression of others. The sign rising creates the overall mask of who you are. The element of the rising sign is the element you present to the world first. For example, if you have an earth sign in the rising sign, then your go-to element is earth. Your personality would be defined as practical, down to earth, you are seen as a sensual person, material stability and luxury are essential for you. I’ll continue on with the elements in the rising… If the sign of your rising is a fire sign then you are more inclined with being self-centered (this is not all bad), vibrant, possibility temperamental, having a child-like wonder and air, personal freedom is one of your focus.

With a water sign as the rising, you’ll have a knack for understanding and manipulating other’s emotions, you can reflect what others feel back to them if need be. Security is prominent in your life, your mother and family will have a significant impact on your personality. For air signs as the rising your personality focus on mental aspects, relationships and communicating with others are essential. Being social is a must. These rising are logic centered and are more inclined to explore social boundaries.

As for the Personal Planets in the 1st house. It is like having a Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, or Mars conjunct with Mars. The Planets become lord of your chart and aspects you closely identify with.  Sun in the 1st house is for leaders though who will not allow anyone else put out there shine. They are conscious of what others see of them and their first impression. Sun here is like an Aries sun. My advice to allow them to be them. Getting in their way will be a mistake.

With the Moon here, your emotions are apparent, woman and your mother are important influencers for good or bad in your life. This is close to having an Aries moon or a Moon/Mars conjunction. Someone with the moon in the first house is likely to have a bit of a temper, combative, or someone who leads their life with emotions or a mother who is like that. You can reflect what others feel with this placement. The closer the moon is to the ascendant the more prevalent this is.

Mercury here leads you to be talkative and a smarty pants. Someone with this placement will have a quick mind and a sharp tongue with multiple interests and skills. Though because this is like having a Mercury/Mars conjunction it makes you ruthless when in an argument. I personally would not want trade words with this person.

Venus here makes some level of your personality diplomatic. You can be physically attractive in some way, or artistically inclined. This planet allows balance in the native life and nature. Favorable, because Venus is about money, situations flow into this Persons life. This is relatable to having Venus/Mar conjunction possibly making someone passive aggressive.

Mars in comfortable here. This is one of the best places for Mars. The planet makes you active here, giving you the energy to stand up for yourself. This makes you act bolder than any other planet, except for the Sun. Most people with Mars in the first require physical exertion like running, jogging, weight lifting, martial arts, etc. The closer Mars is to the ascendant the stronger its influence on the native’s personality.

You can break down the meaning of someones rising sign with all the elements, modalities, or gender polarities.

astrology, Zodiac 1.0

Scorpio 1.0

Now we get to Scorpio. Scorpio is also known as the scorpion of the zodiac. Though you have other archetypes for Scorpio- the eagle, and the Phoenix. But, that is for Scorpio 2.0. They are of the fixed modality and are water signs meaning they are emotional creatures. Though, they are not emotional in the same way as Cancer or Pisces. The time period for the scorpion is October 23 to November 22. They come from the 8th house in astrology. Okay, so the eighth house is the second “bad” or unfavorable house in astrology, the first being the 6th. The eighth house is about other peoples money, sex, taboos, taxes, death- transformative death, the house of what is hidden like occult knowledge, of things beneath the surface.

There are two planets ruling Scorpio- Mars, and Pluto.  With Mars, Scorpio is the feminine aspect of the planet. But, with Pluto Scorpio is the only aspect of Pluto. That is saying Pluto is mainly feminine. So, we know Mars is the Roman god of war, the bloodlust of battle, and primal rage though he has mar marital intelligence about him. All of that is present in Scorpio, but it is turned inward, being feminine as stuff. The God ruling Scorpio is the Roman God Pluto. With the Greek it is Hades. Both are underworld gods, gods of wealth (Pluto was shown with the horn of plenty or the cornucopia). They wear the helmet of darkness or the cape of invisibility,  each likes to hide or keep covered in the realm of the dead. They were gods many didn’t like to talk about much. If you want to know more about Pluto or Hades, read of Persophone and Hades. But, most of the attributes the gods carry you can find in Scorpio.

This sign is intense, scheming, full of the rage of Ares, sexual but this sign is not easy to access. Though, for some reason, I can’t feel the intensity of a Scorpio when I meet one. They feel muted…as if a wall is there. The trick is you must look into their eyes to understand how deep this sign is and how much of themselves they are able to control. This is true for the Sun sign, Moon, and Rising sign ( I’ll talk about that later). They usually have pretty good control over their emotional energy, given that they are a fixed water sign. Scorpio is the sign of extremes and many times they will go through a betrayal of some sort. Scorpio can look underneath the surface of things that pique their interest. They are intuitive and a bit psychic when it comes to dealing with others.

Given that their third house is Capricorn, Scorpio is Johnny tight lips when it comes to communicating. They can keep a secret better than anyone else. Though they are most likely using it as leverage. But they want to keep the friends they make. It is hard to trust someone enough to call a friend for Scorpio.

Emotionally they see themselves as different and original. Oddly enough this sign has Aquarius ruling the fourth house. They want the things they find comfort in separate from the rest. They make a family from those that show loyalty, meaning friends, to them and not always with their family. Think of the phrase ‘Blood of the covenant is thicker than water of the womb.’ Scorpios can understand the emotions of people easily. They are possessive in relationships wanting stability from a steadfast mate. They will attract earthy and practical people who have a concern for money and material things. Socially, Scorpios attract a lot of attention without trying. If the Scorpio is creative, they can make this their career. Leo as the 10th house ruler makes them good stockbrokers, artist, entrepreneurs, and government officials. They will do well in the role of a boss. Though, when focusing on a career you should look at someone’s native sun sign, Capricorn placement, and as the tenth house to start. Scorpios will be right in dealing with things that lay underneath like jewelers, plumbers, tunnel workers, detectives, finance. Cap is the 3rd house so commerce, writing, or being an orator could be career moves for the scorpion.

Oh! A bonus part for Scorpio!! The eighth sign away from Scorpio gives more depth about this sign. Truly, any house that is the same number away from its self ( meaning the house it naturally occupies) will provide more depth to that sign. Gemini is 8th from Scorpio. Mercury is the god that moves between the living and the dead, the divine and mundane, with an insatiable curiosity. This applies to Scorpios they want to know hidden things around them making them lean towards occult knowledge.

astrology, Zodiac 1.0

Cancer 1.0

Here we go. Now for Cancer the crab. This zodiac is cardinal and the first water sign of the zodiac. Cancer starts the Summer Solstice making the dates for Cancer season June 21 to July 22. Cancer is ruled by the moon there is only one aspect of the moon and that is Feminine but you must know that there must be a masculine. There must be a yang to the yin. So the masculine for Cancer is Leo. it is like say the masculine to the moon is the sun. You see how that worked. I would explain why this is so with retrograde planets. The moon comes from the 4th house in astrology this is also referred to as the Imum Coeli or the bottom of the sky. The 4th house is the house of comfort, habits, family lineage, the mother, real estate, and the person’s emotional core. The diety governing the moon is the Greek Selene and the Roman Luna. Now know that the moon waxes and wanes there Selene and Luna are apart of a triad. For the Greeks, the triad was Artemis a lunar goddess of the hunt, Selene the goddess of the full moon, and Hecate the goddess of witchcraft. For the Romans, those goddesses are Diana, Luna, Hekate sometimes Trivia. Selene is about emotions, love, intuition, dreams, magic, divination, and psychic visions.  When it comes to the Cancer zodiac sign you have someone keenly aware of their emotions as well as the emotions of others.  Because this sign has the moon governing it they are extremely intuitive and receptive.  Though, because they are the crab they are given a way to protect the soft emotion side with the tough outer shell and their claws this makes them able to be offensive or defensive yet clingy because of the emotional needs. They are big on there family and the home. If you have a well-adjusted crab you will see the motherly nurturing side, but trust me this is not the only side of this zodiac.  The will you usually have caring friends in their life, who at the same time may be critical of everything they do. The Cancer themselves are calculating with what the say and how they communicate with those around them. The biggest part of cancer is, as I’ve said, their emotions. With this watery placement, the feelings are ruled by Libra. You will have Cancer justifying their actions based on how they feel. They will manipulate, or change, the emotions of others to match what they want and their view of the world. Moving to the relationships of a Cancer they are the ones wanting a mature partner that will bring real stability to their lives. Because the seventh house is ruled by Capricorn, there could be some work romance happening within the Cancer’s life. The crab tends to date for the long-term and will hold on to the partner with its claws. Now, never think they are soft push-overs they project a tough as nails demeanor. Aries is nothing to f*ck with. Cancer can be the leader of any pack. They usually will dominate in male-dominated careers. They may or may not like competition but man they will win at any cost. This sign can be great fitness instructors, entrepreneurs, chefs, executives, social workers, et cetera.

This is all I gots on the Cancer sign for now. I will be doing zodiac 2.0 after all the quarter of this blog is finished. So, tootles for now.

Oh, and the phrase for Cancer is I feel.
