We get asked about two things more than anything else: Love and Money. Let’s take a look at how you can find money in your own chart, or when to be aware of losing money. You get the idea.
The 10th house is pretty obvious because it’s the house of career and financial status. Ruled by Capricorn and Saturn, this is also where you’ll find the medium coeli on the cusp there. This will usually give us a great idea of where this person’s going in theirs. You can also get a pretty good look at how this person is going to stand in society and if they will or will not become something of an authority in that particular area. You also need to bear in mind that this is the highest point in your chart. It’s also a very, very public house. So, you might also check out your 1st house in relation to this as your 1st house involves your appearance and the way you come across to others.
Now the 6th house is going to be where we find, first off, your health concerns. But also, this is where how your work rolls. This is all about your work ethic, and well, that’s kind of important if you want money. If we’re looking at basics, that’s where we go. But, if we wanted to take a look at those events that transform your financial status or even the money you make with others, maybe the 8th house. Sometimes, if I am looking into money as it relates to marriage or even people who might attempt to derail you in making money, the 7th house. You might look at the 11th house to figure out how a person would make their money and accumulate stuff via their work. You’d look at how the ascendant plays with things because you always do, no matter what the issue may be.
I would also maybe look at the 2nd house for assets, and as I mention in the image, planets don’t tell you much. Even if you do take a look at the cusp there, if you keep it at the surface level, it’s just not a lot of information. I mean, are you looking at Venus and Neptune there in my 2nd house and thinking, “Heeey, maybe she could interpret dreams?” (I do. But that’s beside the point.) Honestly, their placements say more about my love life than they do my financial resources. However, Venus isn’t a bad thing as well. She rules that house. Neptune, on the other hand... Well, I get a little stupid when it comes to money. For me, it’s not so much that I am not organized or good with money. It’s that I just don’t care about it much. I care about it as it relates to making other people happy, and I care about it in terms of doing good things; but boy, you loop back around to my Jupiter there and it’s entanglement with Venus...and we get to the other thing I look at:
I have never been really very sure why it is in these write-ups, aspects are always saved for last. My eyeballs go from house to planet to aspects, just kinda like clockwork. Pow! There’s the pattern. I have a hard time writing about just the planets or just the houses because that’s not really much more than the little lights you see in the forest. Sure, you know there’s something making those lights, but what’s working with them? Would you run towards them not knowing if they were good or bad? Well, here’s where we get into aspects.
Of course, I mentioned there are “good” aspects: trines, sextiles and the like. They might give you a bit of a boost in things, but then again, they may also create a tendency towards over-indulgence which is not generally good for money. So, why would I not celebrate seeing Jupiter and the Moon hanging out in Leo in my 10th house? Why does that Venus in my 2nd house not thrill me?
For a few reasons, actually. If you’ll look in the middle there, all those lines with all those little symbols on them, there you have some of the reasons. Most of them are pretty ironic, actually, but first, let’s take a look at Jupiter there. Aspect-wise, not too bad. However, that placement does tend to make me just a bit indulgent to begin with. And a bit on the needy side, at times. So, Jupiter conjunct my Moon, what is that? Well, here’s the first point of connection. That basically denotes a generous character and in some circles, my karma is in giving. In giving, I receive. This is where we move on, though into aspects because my Moon just so happens to let you know which Love Language I engage in most: I am an Acts of Service kind of gal. It’s how I show everything and tends to be how I notice things, too.
Meaning, little things matter a lot, and when you loop it back around to the Jupiter in Leo, I bawl like a kitten lost in an alley when I’m not getting the attention I think I deserve. It tends to make me lack motivation because why bother if I can’t give it away? And, then I get into a rather unfortunate soft aspect between Jupiter and Venus which means when I hurt, I get lazy. I pull back. I wrote all of that out not to have you wondering about me, but to show you how entangled things can be. For some, this will depend a great deal on the aspects at play. If you take a moment to consider how your emotions tie into your money, how you feel about it, even if you think you don’t have a material side, you’ll probably find that in some way, yes, you actually do. We can usually find that by looking at things this way.
Bit of a warning, though, about the so-called more challenging aspects: squares, oppositions and the like. People tend to see those and they immediately do this silly knee jerk response, thinking that they’re destined to be poor or something. First off, that’s not how it works. Secondly, free will is still a thing, and your chart is not your script, it’s a tool. Third, some of the most famous, most wealthy people you will ever find have challenging aspects in their charts, and you want to know what happens? Self-made people who went from nothing to something. They find strength in that adversity, they find motivation in rising from underdog to top dog, and that’s exactly what they do. Perspective truly is everything.
In many ways, astrology is the mother of all sciences. Astrology uses scientific knowledge about the heavenly bodies along with other scientific tools such as star charts to predict the future. Both astrology and numerology are used to generate expectations about events that may happen in the future. The basic premise behind astrology is that the heavenly bodies such as the [...]
I have decided to switch gears, again, this month. One of the things that I am noticing out there in the New Age and Astrological community is people are having a seemingly difficult time with the difference between types of astrology. If they understand those differences, even more still are sort of duking it out over which are [...]
Astrology is the study of the cycles of the planets. By observing the cyclical movements of the planets, we are able to gain a greater understanding of the cycles and patterns in our own lives. Astrology can be a powerful tool to unlock a greater spiritual connection to the universe. Although astrology is not fortune-telling when [...]
THE RULERS OF THE HOUSES Before I begin, I’d like to give you your keys to looking at astrological elements. These graphics will help you to better figure out what you’re looking at- and I will help walk you through the where. We talked about this in July’s astrology lesson, about minor aspects, which won’t really be shown here- [...]
Minor Aspects As I mentioned in our June astrology lesson about aspects- there are minor aspects also at play that also come into the mix. I didn’t really think that there was a full blog’s worth of info in that, so, I’m just adding them to this one. (If you’re new, that also includes links to the prior blogs [...]
So, I’m looking at how this Mars retrograde moving into Scorpio at the end of May had an impact on the month we’re currently in- and it seems to me as though this could be some highly challenging times for people who work with trading and investing. I know that some might wonder about that because, really, the planet’s not [...]
So, here are the past three lessons, in case you’re looking to get caught up. I’ve also linked to Marcos’s lessons prior to that, and hopefully, that helps a bit. We’re still working our way through the basic terms and things- so, no big rush. It’s a blog, so, it’ll be here to refer back to later on if [...]
Understanding the Moon in the Houses In a nutshell If you take a look at your chart- your moon is going to look, well, like a little crescent moon. This is my partner’s chart- and as you can see, it is in the 8th house, Scorpio. We look at the inner wheel to see the house and [...]
How does Mercury retrograde impact your finances? Ordinarily, this wouldn’t be a subject I’d harp on a whole lot, but, this particular retrograde station- hitting on the 28th, is parked in Taurus. When it comes to Mercury, in and of itself, this is the planet that rules not only communication, but also, commerce and trade concerns. Let’s [...]
