3rd House in astrology, Houses!

3rd house

The 3rd house in astrology is a cadent house meaning it is about change and adaptation. Cadent housed helps us evolve. The 3rd house is about how we adapt to social changes, given this is an air house, in our immediate environment. The native location for Gemini, the element of this house is air, the ruler of this house is Mercury. This house is where you can find information on childhood, neighbors, peers, and siblings, how you communicated with others in every form of communication, and how you think. The third house shapes the conscious mind and quick reasoning. Planets here take on many 3rd house qualities if there are enough planets here the person could seem like a full-blown Gemini.

If you are looking at someone’s natal chart are judging the conditions of transits in relation to a natal chart each planet especially the personal planets: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars will have the same feel as a Mercury conjunction. For the Sun that means someone who loves to communicate and make their point known. They can argue up a storm if it comes down to it. For the Moon, its placement here would create a need to talk or communicate in all forms to sort out the things going on within. Friends and peers can come and go like the tide. The inner day to day mind and emotions are riddled with mercurian nervous energy. With Mercury here, you will have one cunning and smart individual on your hands. They are smart because of an insatiable curiosity. Having their hands in more than one cookie jar is how they keep some semblance of inner peace. It takes time for the Mercury in the third to develop the staying power to handle multiple things at once. Venus here makes a flirt, they will flirt with their friends, neighbors, the postman, you name it. They value communication in all forms. It is like an art for them. In fact, if this person is creative or artistic, they will use creativity to communicate what they value. Their words are subtle used they will use sweet words to get what they want. Mars here makes a spitfire. I do not wish to battle with someone who has this Mars placement. Just with how they communicate form body language to words or text they make it known they can tear you a new one.

The third house sign in someone natal chart tells you the basic of how someone communicates, and people they deal with on a daily bases.  To look more in-depth you will have to find the lord of the third house, meaning you would have to find the planet that rules the sign of that person’s third house.

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.

Houses in Astrology

There are 12 houses in astrology. The 12 houses correlate to the 12 signs. The 1st house is home for Ares, the 2nd house is home to Taurus, the 3rd house is home to Gemini so on and so forth. Astrological houses hold an is the environment the zodiac signs evolve in. As for planets, the houses are ruled or governed by planets, corresponding to the masculine and feminine aspect of planets. An easy way to tell if a house is masculine or feminine is if it is an even or odd house. Even numbers are seen as feminine, odd numbers are masculine. Another way is by the natural element associated with that house, fire and air are masculine, earth and water are feminine.

There are three types of houses angular houses relating to cardinal signs like Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. Succedent houses relating to fixed signs Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius. Then, cadent houses relating to mutable signs Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces. Angular houses create the structure of the natal chart and start the flow of energy through the signs. Succedent houses preserve the energy created from the Agular houses and Cardinal signs. The need for preservation in the houses is one reason why fixed signs are stubborn and hard to change. Cadent houses keep the energy flowing ensuring nothing is stagnant. The requirement for energy to move and progress is why mutable signs need space freedom and the ability to move and transmute in accordance with there element.

The primary run through of the houses are as follows

House          Zodiac    Planet    Element   House type    Modality   Gender

1st house    Aries      Mars       Fire            Angular          Cardinal   Masculine

Jupiter!!

Jupiter is a gas giant behind the asteroid belt. It is the fifth planet from the sun taking one year to orbit around our central star with 79 moons we know of!  This planet is the largest in the known solar system. Jupiter is in a sign for about one year depending on the motion of this planet. Meaning if Jupiter is in the process of going into or out of retrograde, is retrograde, or direct. In turn, taking 12 years to complete the zodiac wheel.

Jupiter is about abundance, good or bad. This planet amplifies its placement. Because of the abundant energy, many see Jupiter as a planet of Fortune. Jupiter rules two signs Sagittarius, the masculine expression, and Pisces the feminine element of Jupiter. The houses natal to the Gas Giant are the 9th and the 12th houses. Both are two sides of the same coin when you look into the details of them. The only expression of Jupiter is mutable just as it is for Mercury. The Elements attributed to Jupiter are Fire and Water giving this planet a sense of spirituality.

Jupiter is a planet of optimism and opportunity. It can abundantly give to the max may time you can relate the abundant nature to audacity when it comes to getting what it wants. There is a need for this planet to say in motion, being mutable, not waiting for fortune but creating beneficence. There are other significances of Jupiter in astrology. This planet is known as the husband because it is a benefactor. In a woman’s it is the Husband, and in a Man’s chart, it is how he is as a husband or a long-term relationship. To understand this in a personal chart look at the aspects, sign placement, and house Jupiter holds. To know what is going on with the husband look at the transits aspecting the natal Jupiter.

The opposite Planet to Jupiter is Mercury. Both are about gaining understanding and knowledge. Though, they do it in opposing ways. Jupiter looks for more metaphysical, spiritual and emotional, form of comprehension in constant search for true be it positive or not using what it knows to get what it wants. While Mercury does the same through, logical and practical ways. Mercury tries to bend the truth according to its will using cunning. Jupiter is of mutable energy from higher dimensions. Mercury taps into both upper and lower realms applying high knowledge to everyday life.

Jupiter is the King of Gods. Within pagan religions, the God who is at the top or high point tends to be very Jupitanian A few Gods to name would be Thor, Jupiter, Zeus, and Changó. Because of Jupiter’s place among the traditional planets, Thursday is its day. The metal for Jupiter is tin, and the finger of Jupiter is the index finger.

Mercury

Mercury is the closest planet to the sun in our solar system, with an extremely thin atmosphere not doing much to protect it from the Sun’s rays and flare. Its named after Romes God Mercury the trickster god of thieves, moving through the veil, and male virility who enjoys the company of man more than that of the gods. This small planet orbits the sun in about 88 days, 87.97 to be more accurate, staying in one sign from two weeks to one month depending on the motion of this planet. Meaning if Mercury is in the process of going into or out of retrograde, retrograde, or direct.

In astrology, this planet governs communication, thinking, peers, and cunning. It rules Gemini and Virgo, Exalted in Virgo, Falls in Pisces, and is debilitated in Sagittarius. Mercury is about obtaining knowledge through curiosity, again, governing two signs Gemini, gaining information and Virgo- breaking down that information. It rules over the third house of short travel, peers, communication, and sixth house of open enemies, health, and routine. The two elements attributed to Mercury air and earth showing in astrology this planet is about logic and practicality. Mercury’s mode is mutable meaning the characteristics of Mercury are fickle, cunning, detached, and always adjusting to change. When Mercury aspects a planet it adds Gemini or Virgo qualities to that plant. For example, Venus/Mercury aspects can give eloquence with speech, value logic and reason, learning skills, love of talking and being social with peers, dating multiple people at once or serial dating, and lends to noticing details and/or being critical of those in your personal relationship. Mercury/Moon aspects give a busy mind, nervous thoughts/emotions, need for talk and communication for comfort, wanting to move around, or traveling short distances for emotional stability.

Mercury dominant people, for the most part, are curious, leans towards intellectualism, tend to be lean and wiry, with long limbs or fingers. Mercury gives a need for people to build and gain skills, most of the time it is hard for Mercury dom people to stick to one thing.

Alchemically The symbolic meaning of Mercury is shown in the three elements of dark matter as Spirit. The glyph is composed of the crescent, circle the ego, and cross showing the connection of the mind and self on the physical and spiritual. Think of this a moving through the vail and bring your thoughts from the mental or spiritual to the mundane/physical. The metal for Mercury is quicksilver, the day is Wednesday, the finger it rules is the pinky finger. As for the Body, mercury rules the arms and hands.

Capricorn 1.0

So, goats…Capricorn is another earth sign. They are the half goat half fish, or you could see it as a sea goat. Capricorn marks the Winter solstice on December 21st. Their time period is December 21st to January 20th. They are the cardinal earth sign that sits on the top of the mountian…or chart in astrology. This sign’s home is the 10th house or midheaven that rules social status, image, career, represents the father, destiny, success, and ambition. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn and is the Feminine aspect of Saturn- the masculine would be Aquarius.  When we talk about Capricorn, we should speak of Pricus the original sea-goat, and Cronos to father of time.

Pricus was a creation of Cronos and, for the short story, Tried to revert time to change is children’s destiny because he had the ability over time like Cronos does. But saw it as futile, no matter what he was the only one not affected time while his children were. They reverted to infants and always went to the shore changing from sea-goat to mountain goats incapable of speech or understanding. Because he lost his children to their destiny, he asked Cronos to be killed. Instead, he became the Constellation Capricorn. Cronos, on the other hand, is about the cycle of life the future and destiny. The God overthrew his father, gained power through this then tried to stop a prophecy of his children overthrowing him. Alas, he could not stop his destiny nor his children’s. Cronos was usurped by Zeus.

Anyways, Cronos governs time, repping what you sow. What does this have to do with Capricorn? Capricorn is ambitions- Just like Cronos and Saturn ( the Roman equivalent). They are on the same mode as Aries, so their ambition is about survival. Most of the time Capricorn has to mature extremely fast. Usually, they will experience great amounts of responsibility either of others or just hard knock life. This sign like Scorpio gets served a heavy dose of karma. Though, Capricorn can handle it. They can handle pretty much anything. These mountain goats just don’t stop. They are not emotion…wait let me take that back. They are emotional. Buttttt, most of the time the emotions have been beaten into submission but their cast iron will. These people will make it no matter what.

The good life for Capricorn will happen when they honor the rules of life and stability going after what they want with a practical plan. At the start of their life, the sea-goat may be spendthrift. Though, when this happens life will throw them the worst curveball ever. They will learn to not be reckless with material and financial matters. Being a cardinal earth sign Capricorn will take the initiative to manage and grow their money. Most of the time they will rely on traditional means so wealth building. For example, for years people have saved their wealth in banks. Though, it is not the best thing to do when inflation is 3%, and bank interest rates are 0.01%  but who’s to tell a Capricorn what to do? Aries rules the 4th house for Cap meaning they can be hot heads when it boils down to it. The home life could have been a battlefield, or they would have to become the leader of the household. On the one on one romance, they want a relationship where they can emotionally connect with someone else. A relationship where they can feel nurtured and safe.

Capricorn may end up with a partner who is moody and requires a lot of emotional care. Most of the time their other half has strong moon influences in the chart. Noooww, the tenth house is where they shine!! This is the house that gives more in-depth info on Capricorn. They are all about status and image. It may be a tough road up that hill, but you will never know by looking at them. Having Libra here ruled by Venus shows that Capricorns are usually GORGEOUSThey will use their looks to their advantage and most likely marry up. They have a knack for refined art and beauty. Career-wise, Cap can be a lawyer or judge, art dealer or construction worker, architect, commodities broker, or divorce attorney, et cetera.

So, I wrote way too much on Capricorn. But I still have more to say about this sign. It would have to wait for Capricorn 2.0.

The phrase for Capricorn is I use. 

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.

The phrase for this sign is I desire.
