The Pluto person can almost see into the soul of the Moon person. This is very hard for the Moon person to break away from.

Both people might experience power struggles and employ manipulation. They’re afraid of losing the emotional intensity that the relationship provides and feel bound in some way.

If the Moon person starts to lose interest, the Pluto person will feel afraid and may become manipulative or controlling. They might play games to keep the Moon person interested. 

Even though this Pluto trine Moon synastry aspect should be easier because it’s a trine, I find that this aspect actually creates a lot of strife. 

The natural part of the relationship is the emotional intensity, but this can easily turn obsessive. The couple needs to work hard on their emotional communication in order to create a sense of emotional intensity that’s both healthy and fulfilling.

Pluto Sextile Moon Synastry

With the Pluto sextile Moon synastry aspect, there is a really intense connection. You may feel as though you were destined to be together.

This aspect doesn’t necessarily indicate a karmic connection, but it will certainly feel that way! The relationship seems fated, but it’s purpose is actually to transform both individuals.

Sextiles create opportunity. The Pluto sextile Moon synastry aspect means that you have the opportunity to learn about emotional power and control in a relationship and to heal your own emotional wounds.

One or both people might manipulate or play games in this relationship. It’s passionate and intense, but can also be controlling or shadowy. 

With the Pluto sextile Moon synastry aspect, the couple may express their passions through sex and intimacy, but there is also a jealous or manipulate aspect that bleeds into the relationship.

In this relationship, you can either work through your emotion issues or seize the opportunity to gain power over the other person. Ultimately, it is up to you and your partner.

Pluto Opposition Moon Synastry

With the Pluto opposition Moon synastry aspect, you might experience up and down emotions as a couple.

The Moon person can appear especially erratic; their emotions may fluctuate daily. However, the Pluto individual is more controlling, jealous, or possessive, and they know how to make the Moon person feel especially emotional.

This couple can easily get stuck in the Pluto opposition Moon synastry relationship. Their emotions run wild, but they don’t know how to separate.

The Pluto person may feel that they need to provide for the Moon person in some way. The Moon individual quickly begins depending on the Pluto person, but this can create a lot of pressure.

The Pluto individual may play games with the Moon person to try and control them, yet they simultaneously feel trapped. They are typically afraid that the Moon person will abandon them if they don’t a) provide emotional support and b) keep the Moon person under control.

Typically, this Pluto conjunct Moon synastry aspect is all about how the Pluto person tries to gain power while the Moon person gives away their power and expects their partner to care for them. Both have emotional issues that they should try to work through together.

Pluto Square Moon Synastry

With the Pluto square Moon synastry aspect, your relationship will be fated but it will also involve some power struggles. 

You both bring emotional issues with you from childhood or past relationships that influence your partner. Because your feelings are so intense, you can react in ways that hurt the other person.

The Pluto square Moon synastry aspect indicates that you both need to learn to curb your reactions. You tend to act without thinking and lash out as a defense mechanism. Over time, this will damage your relationship, your partner, and yourself.

In the early parts of the relationship, the Pluto person may try to control the Moon person out of jealousy or possessiveness. However, over time the Moon person will probably learn how to emotionally control the Pluto person.

Couples with the Pluto square Moon synastry aspect sometimes need to seek therapy or counseling to resolve their emotion issues and deep fears. Otherwise, it may be helpful to look into books, podcasts, or individual therapy.

Most of your reactions stem from a fear of loss. To truly heal your emotional self and your relationship, you will need to get to the root of your fears.

Ultimately, this Pluto square Moon synastry aspect can be extremely transformative and life changing if both people are willing to do the work.

The square means that these issues will constantly be in your face, so you aren’t able to ignore these issues until they’re truly resolved.

Others notice your personal appearance right away. You are aggressive, odd, or even flamboyant because you make sure that you look different.

You may be unpredictable or rebellious in every situation. Sometimes, you even seem irresponsible. You believe that you deserve to do whatever you want.

This all stems back to your family issues. You felt that you needed to conform as a child, but you were always at odds with the rest of your family and never truly fit in.

Uranus square Ascendant means that you try to find out how you’re different, but even when you show your eccentric side, you never feel truly authentic.

You tend to build up nervous anxiety then act out to shock your friends or family. You’re trying to express yourself, but it doesn’t feel quite right because you’re actually acting on your past trauma.

When you learn to deal with your trauma, you will figure out how to be different without going overboard.

Ultimately, Uranus square Ascendant will force you to dig into your past trauma in order to be authentically you.

There are some distinct differences from the conjunction. The main divergence is that you use your partner as a mirror for your own inner ideas.

With Mercury opposition Ascendant, you might struggle to figure out exactly what you think, so you need to hear the opinions of others. You don’t know that you believe something until it’s presented to you and it feels right.

Your shadow self is especially hidden with Mercury opposition Ascendant. You don’t always know what your deepest self wants and feels, and with Mercury on your Descendent, you struggle to activate the logical part of the brain.

Because your Mercury tends to be subconscious with Mercury opposition Ascendant, you take on the opinions of other people. You want to hear a variety of conclusions before making your own, but this can also mean that your thoughts are only a reflection of those around you.

With Mercury opposition Ascendant, it’s very important that you learn to access your shadow side and develop your own opinions.

As you grow and develop your shadow side, you will get better at hearing others’ opinions without believing them. You must learn how to consider an idea and see if it feels right to you.

This will happen naturally as you access your shadow self. Mercury opposition Ascendant is all about a “hidden” logical mind that you want to develop.

However, you can also be a bit cold in relationships, or you may attract dispassionate partners who are overly intellectual. Once you heal your shadow self, you will access your emotional side or will attract partners who can meet you on that level.

Keep in mind that with Mercury opposition Ascendant, an intellectual partnership will be very important for you. In a relationship, you need to be able to chat and discuss ideas with your significant other.

You may also want an active relationship in some sense. The sign that your Mercury is in will dictate more of how this manifests, but you certainly won’t want to be bored with your partner.

Sometimes, Mercury opposition Ascendant can indicate that you might attract partners who are two-faced or impish in some way. Mercury can be a bit tricky, so you need to be careful that you’re seeing the truth.

You will know what’s real when logic lines up with your intuition.

Mercury Square Ascendant

Mercury square Ascendant can be a difficult aspect socially. You come across as too opinionated, loud, or arrogant, regardless of your true intentions.

You tend to have trouble communicating. When you want to express something, you may find that it comes out wrong or sideways with Mercury square Ascendant.

Your viewpoints are often poorly expressed or misunderstood. Sometimes, other people could feel that you’re talking at them rather than engaging in a conversation. When you’re feeling nervous, you may preach at other people.

With Mercury square Ascendant, you have very strong opinions, so you may not take the time to listen to other people. It’s easy for you to show that your thoughts and ideas are more important than anyone else’s.

Although you feel strongly about your thoughts, this sort of conversation style makes you hard to be around. In fact, Mercury square Ascendant can make you a bit egotistical socially. You seem both aggressive and unsure of yourself all at once.

Mercury square Ascendant can mean that your body language throws people off. It doesn’t always match up with what you’re saying, so it’s difficult for others to read your social cues.

You may use flattery to try and “win” others, but people easily see through this. They can actually feel annoyed or used because your complements are only for the purpose of boosting your own ego. You tend to seem insincere.

I know that everything I have said about Mercury square Ascendant sounds super harsh. However, most of these issues arise because you don’t feel confident about who you are inside.

Everything that you do socially is a defense mechanism to try and boost your own confidence. Mercury square Ascendant indicates a strong lack of intellectual self-assurance.

Mercury square Ascendant means that you might compare yourself to other people. This creates a lot of deep insecurity that bubbles up in social situations.

Your judgments towards others are a defense mechanism, even if this is all subconscious or even unconscious.

With Mercury square Ascendant, you need to boost your own confidence inside before your social skills will change. You search for assurance from others yet the only person who can truly give you want you seek is you.

It will take you a lot of time and effort to gain self-confidence. This comes through knowing who you are and what positive qualities you have, regardless of what other people think.

When you’re able to feel true to yourself, you either won’t trigger people socially (because you won’t need to brag or shut others down) or you simply won’t care if other people don’t like you. Usually, it will be a combination of both.

Mercury square Ascendant will put you in positions over and over that feel extremely painful. After all, squares are hard. This is all to push you to develop inner confidence.

Ultimately, squares can be life changing when you’re willing to turn around and face your fears.

Saturn-Ascendant Aspects In The Natal Chart

Saturn-Ascendant Aspects In The Natal Chart

Saturn conjunct Ascendant doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re shy, although you may have felt a bit repressed socially as a child. Usually, this is something you grow out of as you age.

However, this aspect does mean that you have a misplaced sense of responsibility. You probably feel responsible for your family members or friends, even if their problems aren’t your fault.

Saturn conjunct Ascendant can also mean that your parents placed a lot of responsibility on you from a young age, although this isn’t always the case. In this scenario, you learned that other people’s issues were your problems.

Now, you feel that it is your duty to “fix” things. You probably experience a huge amount of guilt if you try to ignore these issues.

You may also feel that you struggle to take risks. You’re always playing it safe or hesitating socially. This doesn’t mean that you don’t engage in risky behaviors, but simply that you don’t go after the things you really want because you’re afraid to try.

With Saturn conjunct Ascendant, you may feel that the Universe holds you back in life. It can start to seem like your whole existence revolves around the concept of “one step forward, two steps back.” Keep in mind that the Saturn conjunct Ascendant aspect transforms greatly after your first Saturn return.

As you grow older, simple problems can start to feel complicated and heavy. You carry around a lot of responsibility, but this can start to overwhelm you. It’s sometimes easier to just avoid your problems, but then you’re left with a vague sense of guilt.

With Saturn conjunct Ascendant, it’s really important that you actively deal with your problems instead of avoiding them. Work is the best antidote, however you need to make sure that you’re working on something that feels right in your gut. Don’t do a task just because you feel like you “should.”

Don’t leave things until the last minute because they can build up and cause depression. In fact, loneliness or pessimism, resulting in depression, is common with Saturn conjunct Ascendant. These are things that you need to actively work to improve so that you can eventually lead a happier, more peaceful life.

It’s important that you spend time working on your self-confidence. You may feel that you’re never enough, but this comes from a sense of inner guilt. Others can’t see that this is why you will go out of your way to help someone. You must learn how to do what’s good for you, not what other people want you to do.

You have a lot of fear and apprehension about living in the moment. You try not to react, so you may come off as slightly cold during conflicts, but this is because your Saturn restricts your emotions from shining through.

With Saturn conjunct Ascendant, you may also feel a bit restricted physically, as though you’re out of place in your body. This aspect can make you feel very self-conscious about your appearance. In fact, your appearance can be karmic, so you’re always struggling against it.

As a child, you may have been shy or felt out of place. You probably felt awkward or wrong in your body and tried to avoid expressing your emotions. It was almost like you just couldn’t break through, no matter how hard you tried.

Don’t lose hope! Saturn is always a late bloomer, so you will find that these issues change dramatically as you near your first Saturn return. You can learn how to master these very things that caused so much trouble for you.

Learn to take responsibility for yourself and do those daily tasks that make you feel in your gut. Avoidance is the worst thing for you, but you need to make sure that you’re actively focusing on what you want, not what others want. This will help you grow socially, too, and you will learn to accept your body and your place in life.

With Saturn conjunct Ascendant, each small personal success that you have will build your self-confidence. This aspect takes time to heal, but it can eventually make you very responsible for yourself and dedicated to living your happiest, truest life, even publicly.

You will start to notice that you feel a sense of guilt for yourself when you do too much for others. This is a sign that you are betraying yourself and is where much of your depression and anxiety stems from.

Learn to follow your gut instincts to heal Saturn conjunct Ascendant. Focus on what feels right instead of what you “should” do. There are no “shoulds” with Saturn.

Over time, you will start to relax and learn these lessons naturally. Saturn feels much less strict as you age, but you also have to push yourself to face your fears and figure out solutions. 

There is lots of potential for transformation with Saturn conjunct Ascendant! Ultimately, you can live a life of peace where you’re totally responsible for your own needs. With this aspect, you really can create the life you want long-term with a bit of effort.

Saturn Trine Ascendant

With Saturn trine Ascendant, you appear restrained around other people. You almost always control your reactions, so other people don’t see what you truly think or feel unless you want them to.

You may be quite reserved. Saturn trine Ascendant means that you appear serious and disciplined, thought it may be hard for other people to see who you truly are beneath this mask.

Others don’t see any outward impulsivity in your personality. Sometimes, you can even be a bit hard to get to know, because you’re not the best at small talk. These are skills you can learn over time; they don’t come naturally at a young age.

With Saturn trine Ascendant, you can sometimes seem closed off, mainly because your reactions are so private. Your disposition is very serious, but you can sometimes seem a little bland or empty because you never show people who you are underneath.

You need to learn how to express yourself better in order to be respected. People don’t usually dislike you, but they aren’t drawn to you either because you hide who you are. This is instinctual for you; it feels unnatural to show yourself to the outside world.

Sometimes, Saturn trine Ascendant can make it difficult for you to forge relationships. You’re simply so careful, even as a child, but this can make other people a bit nervous.

You need to relax and show your playful side. This can be really difficult for you because it feels natural to hide who you are.

However, the way that you think can also be a bit rigid. You might be a tad judgmental and see others as right or wrong, the world as black or white. Over time, you need to learn how to appreciate different viewpoints so that you don’t alienate people when you do open up.

The Saturn trine Ascendant aspect is one of the more difficult trine aspects. Even though it’s instinctive, like all trines, it also creates a lot of social issues that are hard to undo.

Ultimately, you need to learn how to be more vulnerable with people. You will come to discover what a conversational rhythm means and will know that when someone else shares something, it’s your turn to share back.

It can be really scary to open yourself up to judgment and criticism. However, you’re mainly afraid of this because you tend to judge and criticize others so much. When you work on these qualities, you will come to realize that other people aren’t as critical and will most likely accept who you are, when you’re able to show them.

You will also learn that even if someone judges you, there’s no reason to feel badly as long as you were being your truest, authentic self. These skills will become more natural the close you get to your Saturn return, if you’re actively working towards a resolution.

Saturn Sextile Ascendant

With Saturn sextile Ascendant, you’re outwardly serious and independent. Regardless of your childhood circumstances, you had to learn responsibility in some way at a very young age.

Unlike the trine, these qualities didn’t come naturally to you with the sextile. Instead, you went through life events that taught you to become responsible and even a bit austere. You become independent at a young age; others can now see this reflected in your outer personality.

Sometimes, Saturn sextile Ascendant can make you feel like an outcast. You may have a small number of friends or close partnerships, but you value loyalty, so you would prefer to have only a few people in your close circle.

The relationships that you develop may surround your shared work goals, routines, or sense of responsibility. Alternatively, your relationships are based on sorrow or guilt that you experienced in your early life.

Although you’re very self-reliant, you do want a few key people around you. You must be able to count on them and you will give the same back. You desire very serious friendships and romantic partnerships.

Others around you can see that you’re responsible, sensible, and direct. You don’t beat around the bush. That doesn’t mean that everyone is privy to your inner thoughts as you keep those very guarded, but they can see these outer elements of your personality.

You’re very strong-willed and know what you want. This is because, in childhood, you had to fight for what you needed. Saturn sextile Ascendant makes you someone truly respectable as an adult.

However, you need to be careful that you don’t become too self-reliant or rigid. Learn to bend a little, even when it doesn’t feel totally comfortable.

Saturn sextile Ascendant can easily make you too serious. Don’t lose your sense of play. Remember to let your inner child out sometimes! Not everything that you do needs a good reason; sometimes you should try an activity just for fun.

You keep things very serious and business-like with the people around you. This can be a great skill, but it’s also important that you learn to open up to those closest to you. Don’t be afraid to be vulnerable, although this can be extra-difficult with Saturn sextile Ascendant.

Ultimately, you want to harness the best qualities of Saturn sextile Ascendant (your sense of confidence, responsibility, and seriousness) while learning to loosen up and allow yourself to have fun.

Saturn Opposition Ascendant

The Saturn opposition Ascendant aspect is also called Saturn conjunct Descendant or Saturn setting. This aspect generally affects your relationships, but you will see these qualities show up most in your one-on-one friendships and romantic partnerships.

Usually, the Saturn opposition Ascendant aspect indicates that you didn’t receive enough praise or encouragement as a child. Now, you may be less-than-assertive and might doubt yourself. Any challenge can seem too intimidating or hard.

You may attract strict father figures as romantic partners, regardless of the gender roles. In fact, your relationships probably have some kind of parental role and may be unbalanced.

This is because you don’t feel that you have the capability to be responsible foe your own life, so you attract people who will take over the role of controlling you and your life. However, this doesn’t work in the long run.

Alternatively, you might be the “responsible,” strict partner in relationships. In this scenario, you attract lovers who are more immature or even physically young. You feel responsible for them and they allow you to take over these duties.

Sometimes, Saturn opposition Ascendant can mean that you’re scared of relationships in general because you don’t want to be vulnerable. You may have experienced negative events in past relationships, either with ex-partners or even with your parents.

Saturn opposition Ascendant usually indicates that relationships are a core part of your shadow-work. You will discover who you are underneath by working through your issues in partnerships and friendships.

This aspect will force you into difficult relationships with people who teach you these lessons. The key to healing Saturn opposition Ascendant is to learn how to accept others for who they are while also accepting your shadow self and setting clear boundaries.

Ultimately, you need to own all parts of yourself. With Saturn opposition Ascendant, you probably attract people who reflect your shadow self. In fact, your partners have the very negative qualities that you suppress within yourself.

When you learn to own and express these hidden qualities, you will start to attract relationships where you can be yourself authentically with partners who want the same type of relationship that you do.

Remember that it’s OK with Saturn opposition Ascendant to have difficult relationships. After all, you only grow with this placement through relationships.

Your partnerships may feel really difficult, but remember that you’re always learning lessons and getting close to fulfillment when you simply keep trying.

Saturn Square Ascendant

With Saturn square Ascendant, you experienced some less-than-stellar circumstances in childhood. You either had intensely strict rules, physical or verbal abuse, or you were emotionally scarred by rules at your school. Sometimes, this placement reflects a combination of all three circumstances.

In your childhood, you felt that you couldn’t control your environment no matter how hard you tried. When you eventually realized that your efforts were fruitless, you retreated into yourself.

Now with Saturn square Ascendant, you’re probably a bit reserved when you meet new people. This might actually annoy you, because you know that you’re not portraying your truest self.

This was learned in childhood. You couldn’t express yourself openly for fear of punishment or retaliation in some environment, whether this was with your parents, teachers, or other children. Your natural enthusiasm was tempered with rules and limitations; you had to hide the truest parts of yourself.

These lessons are very hard to unlearn! You may find that no matter how much you want to show your truest self to other people, Saturn square Ascendant keeps the inner you totally hidden.

You also felt very serious or responsible as a child. In some way, you were responsible or other people or had a lot of weight on you. This taught you that, with Saturn square Ascendant, it’s your job to take care of things.

These lessons make you even more inhibited or shy! It’s especially difficult for you to interact when you first meet someone. 

Because you have this Saturn square Ascendant aspect, others tend to react negatively to you, too. You may come off as too rigid or even pessimistic, even if you’re trying your hardest to be outgoing and optimistic. You clam up and just can’t break free of your bonds.

You will feel especially repressed in childhood. The Saturn square Ascendant aspect is the most tough before your first Saturn return.

It may take some time to develop your social skills and confidence in groups, but it’s important that you actively work to learn these skills. Don’t ever think that you’re just not outgoing; you simply don’t have the same skills that other people are born with.

Over time, you will figure out how to show more of your inner self and take social risks. This will happen when you’re willing to open up and try. It’s very scary to be vulnerable with Saturn square Ascendant, but this is the path to healing.

With this aspect, you might also have some issues surrounding control. You felt that everything was out of control as a child, so you like to stay in areas you have complete control over now.

However, you need to learn how to let down your walls and go with the flow. Be OK with everything that happens, even if it feels bad. Remember that you can’t have good things without the equal and opposite bad thing. 

Ultimately, you can work through a lot of your Saturn square Ascendant issues by getting to the roots of your childhood trauma and recognizing your responses in real time, now. Remember that squares can be a blessing in disguise because they force you to deal with these issues.

Neptune-Ascendant Aspects In The Natal Chart

Neptune-Ascendant Aspects In The Natal Chart

Neptune aspects to the Ascendant influence the way that you appear and present yourself. Neptune is all about dreams and illusions, so these aspects make your appearance more elusive and vague.

However, Neptune can also bring a lot of natural creativity into your life too.

It can make you unsure of who you truly are or cause others to have trouble deciphering your personality, yet it also brings and element of spirituality to your Ascendant mask.

Neptune Conjunct Ascendant

The Neptune conjunct Ascendant aspects make you seem really elusive and dreamy. It can be hard for others to pin down exactly who you are.

Sometimes, you may have an inconsistent look or vibe. Although you’re very magnetic and other people are drawn to you, they can never quite figure you out.

With Neptune conjunct Ascendant, you appear soft and dreamy. You may have illusive eyes that are watery in some sense.

Neptune is much like a higher version of Venus, so Neptune conjunct Ascendant means that you have a lot of sex appeal. However, your sexuality is less visceral and more elusive.

Others project their own images onto you, and you seem to take on these qualities, regardless of who you truly are inside. Your “real” self can be a bit of a mystery. People see what they want to see.

You may be very successful in acting, music, or other creative careers. Many people with Neptune conjunct Ascendant have a flair for entertaining others because people are able to project what they desire onto the individual.

Neptune conjunct Ascendant means that you also have a distorted image of yourself. Just like others project their own opinions onto you, it’s easy for you to take on their wants.

Other people have the power to change how you feel about yourself because it’s hard for you to see your “outer” self clearly. Some people with Neptune conjunct Ascendant tend to have low confidence, if they aren’t careful to build themselves up, because they don’t know who they truly are.

You are easily overwhelmed by harsh things in the world and can’t hide you feelings from other people. You have a sensitive aura that is almost childlike.

Your sex appeal might be a bit childlike too, especially if you’re a women, although men can sometimes have a similar vibe. You seem almost otherworldly and appear young yet wise at the same time. You may appear slightly vulnerable.

Neptune conjunct Ascendant is a really curious placement because you can be so many things! Ultimately, you’re very malleable based on what the people around you want and think, so it’s hard to pin down exactly how you appear.

It’s as if you exist halfway between the real world and another world or higher dimension. The physical world can feel harsh to you, so you escape by changing yourself or dreaming up an alternate reality.

While you’re very spiritually connected with Neptune conjunct Ascendant, it’s also a tough placement because you struggle to live in reality.

You spend a lot of time trying to figure out who you are and how you can comfortably exist in the world. Although people are typically drawn to you, these Neptunian feelings can also cause self-esteem issues, so you might retreat from the world altogether when you feel overwhelmed.

It’s hard for you to connect with others in a way that feels real and authentic, because you’re never quite sure who you are. Who are you truly projecting to the outside world?

Sometimes, people with Neptune conjunct Ascendant experiment with different personas and personalities in an attempt to find who they really are. With this placement, you’re a bit of a chameleon or shapeshifter.

Other people are never quite sure if you’re showing them your true self or are reflecting what they want to see. You’re probably not sure yourself! However, this can make others feel a bit nervous around you, even though they’re also intrigued by your dreamy nature.

With Neptune conjunct Ascendant, you may want to disappear or escape. You’re very sensitive, so it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the harshness of the world. You are easily upset by violence or anything hurtful.

Try to learn that you’re not a victim and avoid saving other people to the detriment of yourself. After all, you cannot help other people if you don’t first look out for yourself. Put on your own oxygen mask first.

You may try to block out reality or your unlimited access to the spiritual realm (which can also be terrifying) through drugs, alcohol, or other addictions. With Neptune conjunct Ascendant, you’re more susceptible to these types of things than most because you want to get away.

Alternatively, you may try to escape into your dreamworld and withdraw from reality. It’s easy for you to do this because your imagination is strong, but this is actually a blocker to discovering who you truly are.

You can be a bit of an escapist with Neptune conjunct Ascendant. You tend to either idealize things or avoid them altogether. Ultimately, you need to learn balance.

Neptune conjunct Ascendant means that you’re very sensitive to higher vibrations. You can easily access the spiritual realm (whether or not you realize it), but this can draw negative or terrifying spirits to you.

I strongly recommend that you learn how to ward yourself spiritually. Your energy is constantly overloaded by the energy of spiritual beings and other people.

When you’re able to ward yourself and protect your energy, you will also be able to work towards developing your own sense of self. With Neptune conjunct Ascendant, you don’t have the natural shields that most of us are born with, but you can create them.

You need to develop discernment by learning how to filter out negative energies, entities, and people. It’s hard for you to judge what is good and what is bad for you, but these are skills that you can develop over time.

If you have Neptune in the 1st house but it isn’t exactly conjunct your Ascendant, you will find that many of these same qualities apply to you, although they may not be as strong.

Neptune Trine Ascendant

With Neptune trine Ascendant, you are sensitive and a bit psychic. You have a lot of empathy for other people and you’re a bit dreamy.

You tend to see the world through emotions and intuition, so it can be hard for you to put your perceptions into words. 

These qualities come naturally to you since birth. Neptune trine Ascendant puts the best qualities of Neptune into your outer personality.

However, you can also be vulnerable to negative energy with Neptune trine Ascendant. You are intuitive and empathetic, but this can be hard to handle when you are faced with a tragedy or violent act. Things that don’t directly affect you do influence your mental state and energy.

It can be helpful, with Neptune trine Ascendant, to learn how to ward yourself. Your energy is very “open,” so you often take on the energy of other people and spiritual entities.

You’re susceptible, which makes it harder to guard yourself against things that will hurt you. Learning to create energetic wards is the first step to regaining your self control.

With Neptune trine Ascendant, your imagination is very active. It’s easy for others to see your intuition and dreamy vibe in your outer personality.

You may have trouble making clear declarations or following through on your intentions. It’s hard for others to tell where you truly stand; your outer personality is watery and may not be well-defined.

Neptune trine Ascendant also makes you a bit childlike. You express true wonder when you discover new things, regardless of your physical age. As a person, you’re typically happy and are friendly to be around.

Although people can’t quite pin you down, this doesn’t trigger others with the Neptune trine Ascendant aspect like it may with the opposition or the square. Others feel pleasant feelings around you.

You do tend to show what you’re feeling, but these emotions can change very quickly. You’re not threatening to others, but you’re not super consistent, either.

Performing arts can be a good outlet for people with Neptune trine Ascendant. You may have natural creative skills, or you may be interested in the spiritual realm or mythology/fantasy.

It isn’t easy for you to express what you feel through words and facts, so a creative outlet is often helpful. This is one way that people can come to know who you are and see the true you.

Although the Neptune trine Ascendant aspect is easy, be careful that you act on your dreams. It’s easy for you to get lost in the fantasy realm, but your life won’t change unless you take action.

The energy of the trine won’t push you to take action, so this is something you have to push yourself to do.

Ultimately, no one can change your life except you. Don’t get stuck in victimhood or self pity (which is easy to do with Neptune trine Ascendant), but instead focus on making your own life happen.

Look to the rest of your chart to see what action-oriented placements you have. These are qualities that you can draw on to make your dreams a reality.

Lastly, it can be helpful with Neptune trine Ascendant if you learn how to ground yourself. You may feel too floaty much of the time which leads to inaction. Grounding is a way to stay in the real world while maintaining your connection to spirit.

Neptune Sextile Ascendant

With Neptune sextile Ascendant, you have a bit of a dreamy nature. You’re extra sensitive to the environment and can easily pick up on subtle energy that other people might miss.

You can read the moods of people around you, even if you don’t consciously realize this. Your personality is mutable, so you can mix with different types of people and project what they want to see.

With Neptune sextile Ascendant, you’re a natural chameleon. You sense how other people want you to appear and change yourself.

However, these skills are very subtle. Your changes won’t be obvious to other people, regardless of how well they know you.

Even your actual appearance can be a bit fluid with Neptune sextile Ascendant. Others might not know how to describe the way that you appear, and even you may be a bit confused!

Because you’re so mutable, you might have a bit of trouble explaining your own wants and needs to other people. With Neptune sextile Ascendant, you have the opportunity to learn how to harness your illusive nature while also remaining true to yourself.

This takes a lot of work, but the goal is to bring your Neptunian qualities into the real world instead of leaving them in your unconscious mind. Work on making your ideas solid and putting your dreamy thoughts into words.

In groups, you’re usually friendly and even a bit charming. You don’t threaten other people and tend to make friends easily, but you also take on the energy of other people.

You’re passive and moldable, but you sometimes forget what’s good for you versus what someone else wants. Your opinions and values are easily influenced by the energy of others.

With Neptune sextile Ascendant, you need to learn how to set boundaries with other people. Work on improving your self-confidence and self-worth. You have the tendency to wallow in pity, but this won’t help you in the long run.

Learn how to take action and change your own life instead of trying to escape to your dream world or avoid your problems.

It’s OK to make mistakes! You must simply get up and try again.

You have a truly fertile imagination with Neptune sextile Ascendant. If you learn how to unlock your dreamy side, you can do a lot in the world. These qualities already exist within you; they simply need to be practiced.

Your emotions can easily be swayed by others, so with Neptune sextile Ascendant, you need plenty of alone time to develop your own beliefs and values before you talk to other people. 

Ultimately, you have a soothing, happy presence and are sensitive to energy. These are all good qualities as long as you learn how to integrate your dreamy side into the real world and set boundaries with others.

Neptune Opposition Ascendant

Neptune opposition Ascendant is also known as Neptune conjunct Descendant or Neptune setting. 

With this Neptune opposition Ascendant aspect, you may not be totally sure what you look like. You can never decide if you like your appearance or not. In fact, your physical appearance may seem to change constantly or it may be just out of reach.

Neptune opposition Ascendant means that you may struggle with clothing, fashion, beauty, etc. These areas feel murky and dreamy, so you never know exactly what you want.

You may base your appearance off of what your partner sees or thinks of you, so the way that you feel about yourself changes based on your partner’s judgements.

In fact, Neptune opposition Ascendant means that your relationships, especially your one-on-one ties, are affected by this elusive, dreamy Neptunian nature. You may see your partners through rose-colored glasses and have an idealistic view of relationships.

When you’re in a relationship, your identity dissolves into your partner’s and vice-versa. It’s hard for you to keep the integrity of your own personality and self-image. This can also happen in close, one-on-one friendships.

With Neptune opposition Ascendant, you have trouble seeing people clearly. You may distort the true nature of others and miss their negative qualities.

This can actually create emotional distance between you and your partner. Neptune opposition Ascendant means that your ideals about the relationship aren’t grounded in reality, so you’re dealing with a duality.

When you’re in a relationship, one partner may ignore emotions while the other may function through feelings alone. You can play either part with the Neptune opposition Ascendant natal aspect.

One partner might seem weak, innocent, or easily influenced by deception. Neptune opposition Ascendant usually means that you attract codependent relationships, though you may play either role in various partnerships. This could be true for your friendships, too.

With Neptune opposition Ascendant, you may start relationships with people you feel sorry for. You try to save people and even feel that the underdog is attractive. However, this doesn’t work out in the long run.

You may go through many relationships with unfaithful partners, or you get into relationships with addicts, chronic liars, sex addicts, narcissists, etc. It can be hard for you to snap out of this, because you tend to get stuck in your delusions.

If you had to admit that you created a false image about a partner, then you would also have to realize that the partner you desire never existed in the first place. With Neptune opposition Ascendant, you may build entire relationships off of people who don’t truly exist.

However, you may also be the partner who lies, cheats, or controls. In this case, you also need to deal with your delusions.

You must learn how to live in the real world without needing to escape. In fact, if you’re this person, then you’re probably deluding yourself in more than one way.

It is possible for someone with Neptune opposition Ascendant to find balance, but it takes work.

Ultimately, you desire that illusive, spiritual merging of two people. You’re almost looking for something otherworldly in relationships, which is why you tend to attract people who appear to be everything you want.

What you might not realize is that these kinds of relationships only come through hard work. Neptune opposition Ascendant makes you want to escape, but the only way to get what you want is to go through the less pleasant situations.

You will need to learn how to establish strong boundaries in relationships. It’s helpful to create some sort of system for reality checks to make sure that your relationship is what you believe it is.

With Neptune opposition Ascendant, you have the tendency to feel like a victim in relationships. It’s important to remind yourself that this isn’t true. 

In fact, the truth is always right in front of you, even if you can’t see it. You always have the power to change your own situation.

With Neptune opposition Ascendant, you can have the spiritual relationship that you desire, but you won’t get it by victimizing your partners. In fact, you actually find this relationship by first creating a strong sense of self and then sharing this with your partner.

In higher manifestations, Neptune opposition Ascendant can represent your truest soul mate. You can find a spiritually enlightened romance, but you will first need to heal this aspect.

With Neptune opposition Ascendant, you desire unconditional love, but you don’t know how to get it. The first step is to figure out what is real. Don’t ignore your gut instincts, but confront your problems and work them out.

Neptune represents enlightenment and spiritual love, yet it can also represent delusions. You want to learn how to encompass the best qualities of Neptune while transmitting the more difficult qualities.

Neptune Square Ascendant

With Neptune square Ascendant, you have a picture of yourself that isn’t what other people see. There’s the dream version of yourself in your head, then there’s the real version of you that appears to others.

Neptune square Ascendant can cause a lot of confusion. You may struggle with your outer identity. This can cause misperceptions and a lack of trust in your close relationships.

You’re extremely sensitive to energy. You especially notice verbal and nonverbal communication from others such as signals like facial expressions, body language, or even energetic shifts.

However, you can actually be too sensitive. If you see one facial movement on someone else that seems “off,” you take it personally and feel self-conscious.

You can easily misunderstand things which makes it hard for you to connect with people at a deep level.

With Neptune square Ascendant, you use other people as a mirror to judge yourself. This is why you’re so sensitive to their reactions. You don’t see the reactions of other people clearly, yet you base your self-worth on these very reactions.

It’s easy for you to feel unworthy with Neptune square Ascendant. You might sacrifice your individuality to make others happy, but this only makes you feel worse in the long run.

Sometimes, people see the worst about you with Neptune square Ascendant, even if their judgments are false. This aspect causes others to project things onto you without waiting for the facts.

Others may put the things that they hate about themselves onto you, so your image gets distorted.

With Neptune square Ascendant, you will need to learn how to stand up for yourself. You must figure out how to be totally straightforward with people, even if this means they won’t like you. This is the only way to feel better about yourself.

This square will literally force you to create a strong sense of outer self. Squares are tough, but they are great teachers.

As a child, you may have felt out of place. Some people with Neptune square Ascendant even feel like an alien. It’s possible that you didn’t know where you fit in.

Keep in mind that all of this pain is teaching you how to develop a strong sense of self, regardless of what other people think.

Your ego and identity are somewhat fragmented with Neptune square Ascendant, so you may be confused about how you fit into the world. You will slowly figure out your place through trial and error.

Be careful that you actually take action instead of daydreaming or victimizing yourself. This square can only be healed through hard work! It is important to discipline yourself so that your dreams become a reality.

The Neptune square Ascendant aspect is all about integrating your spiritual self into the real world, regardless of what people think. You will learn that it’s much better to be yourself than to try to be someone else.

Don’t let negativity destroy your confidence in your abilities. You have a lot of creative and spiritual abilities, but it will take work to integrate them into your outer personality.

Not everything will be perfect all of the time, but as long as you’re representing your truest self, then you’re actively healing Neptune square Ascendant.

Ultimately, this dynamic can create a lot of conflict. The Moon person can’t understand the drive and identity of the Sun, while the Sun person can’t feel the emotions of the Moon.

Sometimes, one or both people refuse to support each other, while other times both individuals simply don’t understand how the other functions. They’re very different people!

The first step to healing this Sun square Moon synastry aspect is for both people to develop a deep desire to understand each other. They function very differently, so it will take a lot of communication practice.

As they work through these issues, the Sun person should be delicate with the Moon person’s feelings, while the Moon person should be careful of hurting the Sun individual’s ego.

The Sun square Moon synastry aspect means that both people will need to work through their emotional issues and delve into how they were raised and why they have their specific values.

Venus-Mars Aspects In The Synastry Chart

Venus-Mars Aspects In The Synastry Chart

Venus-Mars aspects are super intense in the synastry chart. They’re always charged and indicate both sexual and romantic/relationship-oriented energy.

Typically, the Mars person is the more aggressive individual while the Venus person is more passive. However, this will depend on the other aspects in the chart as well as the signs.

I find that Venus-Mars aspects are often present in the charts of people who stay together. This is because both planets are needed to balance a relationship.

Even the difficult Venus-Mars aspects can create a lot of attraction. They’re charged, and may be hard, but remember that difficult aspects are better than no aspects because they create passionate, focused energy.

Venus Conjunct Mars Synastry:

When you have the Venus conjunct Mars synastry aspect, this indicates a really powerful physical attraction. This aspect makes the couple turn sexual quite quickly. 

In fact, the Venus conjunct Mars synastry aspect is the ultimate aspect for sexual compatibility. Strong physical attraction is almost guaranteed.

When you meet someone with whom you have the Venus conjunct Mars synastry aspect, you’ll feel the immediate urge to make physical contact with them. The romantic, sexual attraction is almost irresistible. 

The sexual energy between this couple will be palpable, even to other people. It’s a very physical, animalistic aspect.

With the Venus conjunct Mars synastry aspect, the Mars person is usually more masculine. They have the sexual energy and physical body that the the Venus person admires, while the Venus individual may be more passive, with typical feminine energy.

Of course, this Venus conjunct Mars synastry aspect doesn’t dictate which person has each planet. Therefore, the actual genders of the people have nothing to do with the energy that they share due to this aspect.

Typically, the Mars person will be more active or aggressive while the Venus individual is more passive. This happens regardless of their genders.

However, on some level, both people feel a lot of passion with this Venus conjunct Mars synastry aspect. It’s extremely physical and usually denotes a great sex life.

The individuals in this relationship each view each other as the ideal mates. 

In the long-term, this aspect can be a bit difficult. Although the couple is attracted to each other, they also get under each others’ skin, which can make for a lot of passion arguments followed by physical “making up.”

This Venus conjunct Mars synastry aspect is super powerful, but it isn’t necessarily blissful or peaceful. It causes a lot of commotion and frisson, for good or bad.

The chemistry in this relationship won’t die down quickly; this is a great aspect for the long-haul. However, the couple will need to learn how to communicate and to talk more calmly about issues in order to make this relationship work and remain passionate.

There will be a clear polarity between the masculine and the feminine with this aspect. The couple doesn’t necessarily like or dislike this polarity, but it naturally exists.

Ultimately, the Venus conjunct Mars synastry aspect means that the intensity in this relationship is off the charts. This can manifest in the positive or negative manners, or can be a combination of both.

Venus Trine Mars Synastry

With the Venus trine Mars synastry aspect, the romantic feelings are strong and natural in the relationship. This couple is sexually compatible, but also experiences the romance of being “in love.”

The energy between this couple is very natural. Even if the relationship doesn’t last, the couple will always hold a fond place in their hearts for each other.

In the beginning and throughout time, the Venus trine Mars synastry aspect means that the relationship is very fulfilling for both people. This isn’t something that takes a lot of work. 

The couple knows how to please each other sexually. In fact, the physical aspect of this Venus trine Mars synastry relationship is just as fulfilling as the romantic part.

With this aspect, the energy just flows. However, like any Venus-Mars aspects, the Mars person tends to have a slightly more masculine energy. This will be less obvious than the other aspects, but there is still an undertone of masculinity versus femininity. 

Venus trine Mars synastry means that the way the Mars person initiates is pleasing to the Venus person. Both people naturally know how to please the other in bed.

Ultimately, the Venus trine Mars synastry aspect means that the romantic relationship is natural, affectionate, and fulfilling. The couple enjoys each other sexually, but they are also on the same level in a romantic and creative sense. 

Unless other aspects indicate something different, this relationship will be quite easy, harmonious, and pleasant.

Venus Sextile Mars Synastry

Although the Venus sextile Mars synastry aspect isn’t as strong as the trine, it still indicates that there is a lot of romantic attraction between the couple. They know how to fulfill each other romantically and sexually.

In this relationship, there is both a lot of passion and a sense of emotional tenderness. With Venus sextile Mars in synastry, there is a lot of potential for a really fulfilling relationship.

However, the Venus sextile Mars synastry aspect is a bit more subtle. The chemistry is there, but it’s more of an undertone. 

This relationship will be very easy and simple. The couple is each attracted to the other and are pleased by the other. They may not be each other’s usual “type,” but this won’t bother either person.

The Venus sextile Mars synastry aspect means that it’s very easy to develop good sexual chemistry, too. There may not be as much sexual intensity as the conjunction or trine, but there is the potential to develop a really fulfilling sex life over time.

Generally, the Venus sextile Mars synastry aspect won’t make or break a relationship, but it is an easier aspect to have in the synastry chart.

Venus Opposition Mars Synastry

The Venus opposition Mars synastry aspect indicates a strong and compelling relationship. There is a lot of romantic and sexual attraction between this couple.

However, this Venus opposition Mars synastry relationship can be a bit of a roller-coaster. Both people may experience emotional ups and downs that cause problems in the relationship. It can feel a bit unstable.

Sometimes, this relationship feels like it’s always changing. The couple might be immensely attracted to each other in one moment, then repulsed by each other the next.

Generally, the Venus opposition Mars synastry aspect makes for a really complex relationship. It can be uncomfortable or difficult, but this aspect also creates an opportunity for both people to grow.

Remember that in the synastry chart, oppositions aren’t necessarily bad. They create a charged energy because of the polarity, but they also indicate that there’s an opportunity to change and learn.

On the one hand, this aspect creates a really intense romantic and sexual energy that borders on obsession. There isn’t a lack of desire in this relationship!

If this Venus opposition Mars synastry relationship turns negative, one or both people might become jealous or possessive. They might feel like they’re competing with everyone else. 

The opposition can become too volatile and polarized, leading to both people feeling like absolute opposites sexually and romantically. If this isn’t solved, it will eventually reach a breaking point.

However, this Venus opposition Mars synastry aspect has a positive element, too. Each person mirrors something on the other person because the way that they approach both sex and romance is opposite. If both people are able to recognize this mirroring, then they can explain their own desires to the other person and learn how to compromise.

Communication is really important with this aspect. Each person must be willing to let go of their preconceived notions and to transcend in the relationship.

Venus Square Mars Synastry

With the Venus square Mars synastry aspect, the emotion and sexual pull is really strong, but this couple will also experience a lot of miscommunications.

Typically, the Mars person will come across as too aggressive or inconsiderate, or the Venus person might feel like the Mars person is only interested in them sexually, not romantically. The Venus person usually needs more of the relationship aspect.

The Mars person person may feel that the Venus individual is too difficult, sensitive, or closed-off. They want more bluntness and animal instincts, but the Venus person desires a bit more finesse.

The Mars person might be attracted to the Venus person’s beauty or looks, but they’re not able to get what they want because the Venus person doesn’t react the way they desire when the Mars person initiates.

The Venus person is usually a bit more jealous than the Mars person in this relationship, but possessiveness may be an issue for both people, too.

In the beginning of the relationship, other people can see the tension. Some of this is because this couple might have really public, angry arguments.

Although both people are really attracted to each other with the Venus square Mars synastry aspect, the timing might be off. 

The Venus square Mars synastry aspect can be almost as charged as the conjunction, but the sexual energy is more unconscious. The couple might feel like it’s hard to actually access the sexual energy, even though it’s always there.

In fact, this relationship can be really frustrating for both people. They know that it could be something great, but they just can’t access it. This is especially true for the Mars individual.

Their sex life may never be quite what they’re looking for. Each person is attracted to the other, but they never seem to have the same timing. It’s hard for them to communicate what they truly want from the other; their wants and needs are quite different, so they don’t understand each other.

This couple may not realize how much they love each other until they’re physically away from each other, only to fight when they’re around each other again.

This Venus square Mars synastry relationship is love-hate. It is very possible to make it work long-term, but it will require a lot of communication. This couple will need to tap into the unconscious energy that is hard to reach in order to find romantic and sexual satisfaction.

Keep in mind that things won’t just resolve with this Venus square Mars synastry aspect. It will take a lot of work and communication to be able to work through these difficulties.

An Introduction To Mundane Astrology: Nations, Politics, & Big Events

An Introduction To Mundane Astrology: Nations, Politics, & Big Events

There are many different branches of astrology. Mundane astrology is the branch of astrology governing places, countries, cities, entities, corporations, geographical events, and the world.

In natal astrology we study a single person’s chart, but in mundane astrology, we study something larger, something that’s more established.

The term Mundane astrology comes from the Latin word mundus, meaning world. It’s quite literally the astrology of the world!

Mundane astrology shows us what is happening in the world due to the gravitational pull of the planets. It can be used to predict the future and prepare for possible events.

Why Study Mundane Astrology?

If you believe that Mundane astrology is true, then you could theoretically predict world events. Even if we can’t actually do anything to change these events (as this is usually impossible because the energy of the planets is so strong), you can still be prepared for what is coming.

For example, the United States is entering its Pluto return right now. This only happens about every 250 years, so this is the first Pluto return for the US.

Looking at the chart helps me a lot because I can try to figure out what I think is going to happen and prepare.

Just before the stay-at-home order hit, astrologers were predicting some sort of massive lockdown. In fact, Mundane astrologers had been speaking up about the year 2020 for over 50 years! Mundane astrology can be super helpful if you’re interested in the astrology of politics.

I also love using Mundane astrology for my business in order to work with the energies.

Even if you only study Mundane astrology for your own amusement, it will at the very least help you be prepared while you become a better astrologer and learn more about various placements.

How To Read A Mundane Astrology Chart:

To draw up a Mundane astrology chart, you do the exact same thing as you would with your own chart. 

For a nation or country, you simply need the birth date and place of the country. This is usually the “official” time and place that the country or nation came into existence. For the United States, we use the date, place, and time the Declaration of Independence was signed.

However, you can also use the first official inauguration if there is no clear date as to when the nation truly began.

You do the same type of thing for a business, entity, town, city, or other place or thing. If you don’t have a specific birth time then you can either use your best guess, use 12pm (and omit references to the points and houses), or you can use your pendulum to determine a birth time that both looks and feels correct.

A Mundane astrology chart will look the same as any other, but the signs, houses, and planets have slightly different meanings that clearly apply to bigger entities.

A Caution About Mundane Astrology:

I hate to say that but, after having the fear of GOD put in me one too many times when I was first starting out, I feel it’s necessary.

Don’t believe everything you read! Many Mundane astrologers will present their opinion like it’s fact.

For example, with upcoming Pluto return, I have heard that our government will be overturned, that the world will explode because of climate issues, and that we will move to another planet. I mean seriously? Other countries have made it through their Pluto returns, but some haven’t. So at the end of the day, who knows?

We’re all just guessing based on our own associations, our experiences, and the history that we have researched.

Additionally, many astrologers let their own political, social, or ethical beliefs influence what they see in a chart. Most of us do this sometimes (it’s really hard not to) but it’s also really important to look at the chart objectively.

If we just see what we want to see then we won’t be prepared. So, if an astrologer is giving you a bunch of good news that goes against common sense and the current climate, don’t put too much stock into that.

However, don’t believe the astrologers who only present doom and gloom, either. Usually, what’s going to happen in somewhere in the middle of the two extremes.

Always trust your gut over any blog post! I’m definitely not correct 100% of the time and I don’t imagine that anyone else is, either. We are all influenced by our experiences and our biases.

What Do The Signs Mean In Mundane Astrology?

I won’t list out the meanings of the signs here because, in Mundane astrology, you can read the signs as you would regularly. 

However, the meanings of the planets and the houses are very different, so I’ll go into those below!

I recommend looking at the planet/house first and then applying the meaning of the sign to the aspect using your regular knowledge of the sign’s elements and qualities.

What Do The Planets Mean In Mundane Astrology?

In my opinion, the planets are very important in the Mundane astrology chart. I recommend looking at the planets first and seeing what you can pick out in a chart.

The Sun:

In Mundane astrology, the Sun represents the leaders and people in authority positions. These are the folks that the public does or must look up to. The Sun would represent prime ministers, kings, emperors, presidents, magistrates, judges, etc.

Sometimes, the Sun can represent individuals who the public listens to, even if they aren’t technically in an authority position. This authority is bestowed by the people.

In a Mundane “natal” chart, the Sun can also represent the force or will of the nation/country.

The Moon:

If the Sun is the leader, the Moon represents. the people in general. Sometimes this is all of the people, while other times the Moon can represent women more specifically. It also indicates crowds.

Alternatively, the Moon can represent anything to do with water (including transport, conditions, etc.) as well as land and crops.

The Moon almost always shows where the public’s attention falls. Anything that draws a crowd or that people notice is related to the Moon.

Mercury:

Mercury represents anything relating to news and media. This includes newspapers, TV channels, books, publishers, the press, speakers, news commentators, professors, and intellectuals. Sometimes, Mercury can also represent what is being taught or conveyed intellectually.

In Mundane astrology, Mercury can indicate transportation (usually public) as well as communication.

Venus:

Venus represents artists, musicians, actors, athletes, theater, festivals, children, courtship, and marriage. Everything relating to beauty and entertainment is Venus.

When Venus is badly aspected, the beauty and harmony of a country will suffer.

Mars:

Mars represents the military (the navy, the army, the air force, etc.), the local police, attacks on the country, disputes, conflict, and opposition. Anything relating to fire will show in Mars when looking at the Mundane astrology chart.

However, Mars can also represent leaders who aren’t in the public eye, such as engineers, military leaders, and doctors. This planet can also show epidemics, crimes of violence, and more commotions. If something violent is happening, look to Mars first.

Jupiter:

In Mundane astrology, Jupiter is a bit of a duality. It represents the religious community as well as the judicial system.

Priests, religious leaders, bankers, judges, and lawyers are all represented in Jupiter. Because Jupiter rules both expansive finances and philosophy, it can show things relating to order, peace, prosperity, religious beliefs, and more.

Saturn:

Saturn represents the local law enforcement and the minor executives. For example, Saturn in the United States tends to represent the executive branches of each state or city.

Alternatively, Saturn can represent civil servant employees, land owners, mine operators, any public buildings or parks, and the elderly population.

In a more negative sense, Saturn shows epidemics, large-scale tragedy, public sadness, national calamities, and scarcities.

Uranus:

Uranus is the black sheep of the Mundane astrology chart. It represents political tension of all natures. When Uranus shows up, the people are trying to break out of the mold.

Typically, Uranus specifically shows rioting, strikes, and breaks for individualism. It can sometimes indicate right wing politics (more on the Libertarian side) but can also show scientific discoveries and inventions.

Uranus governs air and rail transport as well as labor organizations, explosions, anarchy, and the electrical and radio industry.

Neptune:

If Uranus leans right then Neptune leans left, towards socialism and communism. However, Neptune can also represent socialized medicine and hospitalization, charities, covet plots, fraud, illicit activities, and loss.

Neptune in certain aspects can indicate illusion. It can show when the people are unable to see what’s real, and it can show the illusions that a country or nation projects to the rest of the world.

However, Neptune represents the spirituality of a country as well. This is on a much deeper level than religion. It can indicate drugs or addictions on a mass-scale.

Pluto:

At its best, Pluto represents change and rebirth. In any chart, Pluto is all about metamorphosis and regeneration, regardless of how painful that may be.

In Mundane astrology, Pluto can indicate many things. Some of these include political undergrounds, espionage, organized crime, wealth, power, control, violence, rape, death, hidden information, organized labor, mob psychology, and the collective unconscious of the nation.

The Ascendant:

The Ascendant shows how the country/nation/entity/corporation is viewed by others. Aspects to the ascendant can more specifically show if the entity is viewed in a positive or negative light.

What Do The Houses Mean In Mundane Astrology?

Although I think the planets are super important in Mundane astrology, I definitely recommend that you do some research into the houses, too. Here’s my description of the houses and what they rule in Mundane astrology.

The 1st House:

In Mundane astrology, the 1st house rules the country as a whole. It also shows how the country/city/entity/corporation comes across to others, because this is where the Ascendant sits.

When you’re looking at transits, pay special attention to anything in the 1st house. These planets will affect the country as a whole. Most huge events show up in the 1st house.

The 2nd House:

The 2nd house rules the wealth of a nation, the economy, currency, revenue, banks, the Stock Exchange, financial institutions, money market, and trade. 

It also rules the possessions or property of people as a whole. Anything material is ruled by the 2nd house. 

Planets in the 2nd house will affect the finances or economy of the country, nation, or corporation.

The 3rd House:

The 3rd house rules all sorts of short-term transportation such as travel by car, bus, subway, or bike. Because the 3rd house is communication, it shows everything relating to information and news, such as the Post Office, the media, the news, internet, telephones, magazines, publications, and newspapers.

It can also rule young people and education or places of learning. 

Generally, the 3rd house will show the way that information is relayed and received in a country. Any planets transiting the 3rd house will affect either the reception or the output of information.

The 4th House:

The 4th house is the foundation. It rules the home, land owners, and workers of the land, as well as foundational cities and the basis for which individuals are working/voting. Sometimes, the 4th house also rules the weather.

Because the 4th house is opposite the 10th (which generally rules the leaders or people in power), it’s all about the common person/family unit. It’s usually a direct contrast with the leaders and may indicate where the country came from or how it was initially created. 

The 5th House:

The 5th house rules theater, sporting events, places of amusement and entertainment, gambling, and social functions. It shows how the people find hobbies and spend their free time; it’s all about what folks do for fun as a society. What things are considered recreational? The 5th house will show this.

However, this house can also rule the birth rate, children (and how they’re raised), and sexual concerns. 

The 6th House:

The 6th house rules public health, hospitals, healthcare, and epidemics. However, it also rules trade unions, national services, civil servants of the country, and workers and employees of a company.

This house can show a country’s general attitude towards work and health.

The 7th House:

The 7th house rules foreign affairs, relations with other countries (for better or worse), and the national marriage/divorce rate.

It shows the “other parties” involved with the nation/country/corporation. It can also indicate other people involved in an event who are victims.

The 8th House:

The 8th house rules the death rate, the types of people who die, how the nation treats death, and financial relations with foreign countries. It can also indicate how much debt a country or corporation is in as well as loans, interest, and taxes.

The 8th house can also be relevant the people are feeling oppressed or there is some sort of power struggle.

The 9th House:

The 9th house rules higher education (college or university), professors, and philosophic and scientific institutions as well as religion, churches, and religious influence on the public.

However, the 9th house can also rule long distance travel by a plane or boat or places of recreational/large events. The 9th house also governs law and the judicial systems.

The 10th House:

The 10th house shows the person or people in power (such as the monarch or president) and the government in general. Sometimes, the 10th house can also rule famous people, even if they’re not actually in positions of power.

In a more national sense, the 10th house rules reputation, credit, power, and public employment rate.

When a planet is transiting the 10th house, it will impact the leaders of the nation/corporation or the government or ruling entity as a whole. This house is especially relevant when studying the astrology of politics.

The 11th House:

The 11th house rules the masses and groups. Mob psychology is definitely present here. The 11th house is especially useful if you’re looking at a Mundane astrology chart for an event.

However, most “rebellious” periods or times of change have to do with the 11th house. Idealism and hope is also represented here.

The 12th House:

The 12th house rules places of confinement such as prisons, hospitals, asylums, secret societies, and occult religions. It also rules the people who work or live in these places.

It also rules endings and can indicate how an event or reign will end.

When a planet transits the 12th house, this usually indicates that something hidden will come to light.

 
Moon-Ascendent Aspects In The Natal Chart

Moon-Ascendent Aspects In The Natal Chart

Moon-Ascendant aspects show how you express your emotions around others. These aspects also indicate how emotional you appear to other people.

With the beneficial Moon-Ascendant aspects, you not only have a healthy means of expressing emotion, but you’re able to pick up on and adapt to the emotions of other people.

With the more difficult aspects, you either can’t express your emotions or they come out sideways. You still intuit how others feel, but you don’t react to those emotions in a way that truly serves you.

Ultimately, Moon-Ascendant aspects are beneficial to learn about because by working through these issues, you can express a more authentic version of your emotional self.

Moon Conjunct Ascendant

With Moon conjunct Ascendant, it’s hard for you to hide your emotional self. This aspect means that you emotions are on display for everyone else to see; how you feel is obvious to others.

You interact with other people almost automatically through your learned habits. In fact, your emotions dictate many of your outward reactions. Your relationship skills were conditioned at an early age by your family (particularly by your mother or female caretaker). 

Moon conjunct Ascendant means that you’re really impressionable. You pick up a lot of energy from the environment and are sensitive to even the slightest changes.

The way that you present yourself may be confusing to others because you give off mixed signals. It’s as though who you are changes as your emotions change. Even your physical appearance may appear to morph with your moods.

Moon conjunct Ascendant can indicate that you try to keep others at arm’s length but simultaneously desire deep relationships. In fact, your outer personality is filled with these types of contradictions. Others just can’t figure out what you actually want. This is because your outer personality is ruled by emotions rather than logic, so you change as your moods change.

Your facial expressions reveal many of your moods, even if you do try to hide them. However, most people with Moon conjunct Ascendant don’t even realize that they appear moody to others. They simply feel that their personality is who they are in the moment. They don’t realize that their extreme sensitivity and reactions are confusing to others.

With Moon conjunct Ascendant, your emotions are often based on what you interpret others are feeling about you. If you sense that someone has a negative thought towards you, your whole mood and persona will change. You might be extremely sensitive and reactive with this placement.

If your Moon conjunct Ascendant is in the 1st house, you will have frequent, outward emotional displays. If your Moon conjunct Ascendant (or either planet/point) sits in the 12th house then these emotional displays will be hidden or below the surface.

You have a strong attachment to family, your childhood, and your home, but this can also make you moody. All of these topics will trigger emotional responses that you can’t contain.

With this conjunction, you can be needy or dependent based on your mood. You want to care for others or desire to be cared for in some way. Emotions simply don’t understand boundaries, and neither does your outer persona. However, this can shift quickly based on your mood.

Some people with the Moon conjunct Ascendant aspect show these qualities negatively as moodiness, too much sensitivity, and taking innocuous things personally. Others, with a bit of work, are more positive and use their emotions in an empathetic way towards others. There is a whole spectrum with this aspect!

If you have Moon conjunct Ascendant, it’s helpful for you to find an outlet to express your emotions. The specific outlet will depend on the sign that the conjunction is in. Some people enjoy art, journaling, exercise, performing, etc. You simply need a way to get the emotions out.

Be careful that you don’t take things too personally. You may read into every movement and facial expression that you see on someone else. You can be extreme sensitive and reactive, but you can use this for good because you have so much empathy, too. You must simply incorporate a bit of logic to temper your reactions.

You should also work to place less importance on how others see you. Sometimes, you allow the moods of others to dictate your own emotions. Work on defining clear boundaries with empathy and kindness.

Moon Trine Ascendant

When other people first meet you, they instantly feel safe and secure. You give off a calming emotional energy with this Moon trine Ascendant aspect.

You have a lot of insight into the behavior and moods of others. In fact, it can seem like you have an uncanny ability to see what others are feeling, even when they’re not expressing it.

Unlike the conjunction, you’re very articulate when expressing your emotions. This is something that comes naturally with Moon trine Ascendant. You know how to speak about your own emotions without triggering others or making them feel insecure.

You’re highly adaptable to the feelings of others. You sense when someone is feeling a certain way and will change yourself to fit the situation, but you manage to do this in an authentic manner, remaining true to yourself.

Unfortunately, Moon trine Ascendant also means that you’re extremely sensitive. Although this is often a positive quality, extreme sensitivity can cause a lot of emotional pain, too.

Your goal is to incorporate logic into your emotional landscape in order to reason with your sensitivity. Don’t lose your empathy in the process, but simply work with facts to ground yourself so you don’t spiral out of control.

With the Moon trine Ascendant aspect, you probably have a deep connection to your family or town/country of origin. Although this can definitely cause some emotional strain, this is also a quality that grounds you when your feelings are too intense. 

Moon Sextile Ascendant

With Moon sextile Ascendant, you have some natural abilities with your emotions, but most emotional qualities need to be developed.

This aspect means that you have the opportunity to learn how to pick up on the moods of people around you. Right now, you probably sense emotions to some degree, but you haven’t quite refined this practice. It doesn’t come as naturally to you as it does to those with the trine.

You’re probably very good at gauging the moods of groups in general. When you walk into a room, you can sense the emotional tone of the gathering. 

This is a skill that you can hone and make more conscious. It can open up career opportunities for you or even help you in your personal life.

You also have the opportunity with Moon sextile Ascendant to learn how to show your emotions in an authentic way. You sometimes feel like you aren’t quite sure how to reveal your emotions to others, but a bit of practice will help you gain confidence in your emotional expression.

However, your sensitivity can be your weakness. As a child, you probably felt uncontrollable sadness when you learned about painful things in the world. Again, you have the opportunity to overcome this using logic.

Moon Opposition Ascendant

With Moon opposition Ascendant, you are highly sensitive to the impressions of others. It can be emotionally draining to you if you feel like someone else doesn’t like you, even in the smallest way.

However, you put off a cold, guarded, and detached vibe. Other people might see you as completely unemotional, or believe that your emotions are locked deep down.

With Moon opposition Ascendant, you’re very good at hiding your emotions from the outer world. Unless you want people to know you feel a certain way, no one will see even a hint of your true emotional landscape.

Once you’re in a relationship, this all changes. Moon opposition Ascendant means that you might look for a partner who will emotionally support you. You may even want someone to “fix” your emotional problems. This is because you don’t know how to do the emotional work yourself.

You look for emotional interdependence in relationships with Moon opposition Ascendant. Although this makes for really caring relationships, it can cross over into codependency. You want your partner to figure out what you need because even you don’t know.

Alternatively, if you partner doesn’t give you enough emotional support, you may feel stifled or unappreciated. Again, this is because you don’t really have a grasp on your own emotional needs. They are all completely unconscious.

The goal with Moon opposition Ascendant is to take responsibility for your own emotions and learn to be your own person, separate from others. See that it’s alright to share your emotions with others, even publicly, as long as they’re yours.

Learn how to figure out what your emotional needs are, then try to authentically show them to others. The first step is to go within, because if you don’t know what you want, you won’t be able to explain it to other people.

Moon Square Ascendant

With Moon square Ascendant, the way that you express yourself conflicts with how you truly feel emotionally. Your words, tone, or even body language is inaccurate or off.

It’s easy for you to misinterpret how others feel about you, especially when you first meet them. You typically interpret others’ feelings to be stronger than they actually are.

For example, someone may dislike one thing you said, but you interpret this to mean they dislike you. Because you’re so sensitive to the energy of others, you quickly blow things out of proportion.

Depending on the signs involved in this Moon square Ascendant aspect, you can also take rejection quite personally. You react to rejection based on the signs involved, as well.

You typically don’t express your true emotions with Moon square Ascendant, at least not in public. You’re scared of how others would respond to your authentic feelings, so you hide them away.

Although you sometimes shield your emotions, because you don’t want to elicit a negative reaction from other people, you also hide them to avoid relationship problems. However, this increases your inner tension. At some point, your emotions will come out sideways, either through passive-aggressive behavior or angry blowouts.

Moon square Ascendant usually develops because you couldn’t show your mother how you truly felt, at least some of the time. She probably reacted in the manner of the moon sign; for example, with Moon in Aries, the mother would have gotten angry when you revealed emotions that she didn’t like. Your mother unconsciously taught you that your emotions should not be seen by others.

Her reactions also taught you to be extra sensitive to the emotions of those around you in order to avoid causing upset. However, as an adult, this no longer serves you.

As you grow with this placement, you must learn to be less self-conscious about saying what you feel. Sure, your expression of emotions may elicit a negative reaction from someone, but learn to discern whether this reaction is towards what you’re feeling or you as a person.

Ultimately with Moon square Ascendant, you need to develop a sense of emotional security within yourself. Learn that it’s alright if others don’t approve of you as long as you approve of yourself. You will feel much more content within yourself when you finally express what you authentically feel.

Sun-Ascendant Aspects In The Natal Chart

Sun-Ascendant Aspects In The Natal Chart

Sun-Ascendant aspects are all about how you appear versus who you truly are. For this reason, I think these aspects are so interesting!

These Sun-Ascendant aspects will dictate if you show your true qualities to others or if you wear a mask, hiding who you truly are.

Many of these aspects are qualities that we’re born with. While they can’t be changed or erased, these aspects can be transmuted for your highest good. With any aspect, there is always a lesson.

Sun Conjunct Ascendant

If you have the Sun conjunct Ascendant aspect, you get noticed. You probably make a strong impression on others without even trying. In a group, people notice you quickly or may even watch you, mesmerized by your very being.

You have a magnetic personality in a super “sunny” way. Unless your Sun conjunct Ascendant aspect is in a sign like Scorpio, you don’t come off as dark at all. Your disposition and your style are both sunny and happy.

Around others, your entire self is on display. You appear very upfront and honest, but you’re also pretty charismatic. In fact, this Sun conjunct Ascendant placement can make you seem more like a Leo than like the sign that the conjunction is in.

However, there is the potential for you to become too egotistical. Because you know the influence and power that you naturally possess, it can go to your head if you let it. You must learn humility and that this natural power is a gift, not something to use for selfish reasons.

The goal with Sun conjunct Ascendant is to learn how to become more giving and caring towards others. It will be essential to be in many different types of relationships in order to learn this.

Sometimes, you may struggle to express the sign that is opposite of your Sun conjunct Ascendant sign. For example, if your Sun conjunct Ascendant is in Cancer, it can feel like Capricorn is an integral part of you that you’re never able to show.

It’s essential that you learn, in this lifetime, to express the opposite sign to those you’re close with and are in intimate relationships with. Your shadow self is even more hidden, so this takes extra work for you to deal with the shadow self.

You have a lot of leadership potential with Sun conjunct Ascendant. You’re honest, upfront, and forceful. However, you must learn to remember that your employees or coworkers are important, too. You possess a good deal of initiative and might be a self-starter in many areas.

Remember that not everyone else has the same skills as you, but everyone does possess a unique set of talents that are equally as important. They may have different motives that you. It’s easy for you to only see your primary agenda, but try to broaden your lens when working with others and put yourself in their shoes.

Ultimately, you are self-reliant and self-confident. You wear your heart on your sleeve and want to be recognized for your own work.

One of the best qualities of this Sun conjunct Ascendant placement is that you aren’t afraid to jump in and get things done! You believe wholeheartedly that you’re in control of your destiny and that anything you desire can become a reality.

Sun Trine Ascendant

With the Sun trine Ascendant aspect, you typically make a great first impression, You are charming and attractive. People are naturally drawn to you.

In fact, you have a talent for attracting people to you, so you’re probably popular and well-liked, at least by general standards. You have a lot of energy that puts out rather magnetic vibes.

Sun trine Ascendant means that it’s easy for you to make friends with others. This is a natural talent of sorts; you were born with these skills.

You do have an authority to your presence, but you’re not too strict or too egotistical. You simply have an important energy. Others aren’t confused by your identity; you show who you are and have a clear outer personality.

With this Sun trine Ascendant aspect, you can be a bit restless in life. You may find yourself jumping from one thing to the next. It’s easy for you to woo people, but you must remember to actually stick around and build relationships.

This Sun trine Ascendant aspect is an easy trine. However, this means you may also coast through life, taking the admiration that others give you for granted. You may gravitate towards the people who don’t give you this attention and try to woo them. Don’t forget that true relationships are built on much deeper foundations than just admiration. 

Job-wise, you typically enjoy performing. This doesn’t only mean on stage (although you might like the spotlight). You can also “perform” with clients, in social grounds, playing sports, etc.

Sun Sextile Ascendant

With Sun sextile Ascendant, you express yourself quite openly, especially early in life. You’re probably charismatic and outgoing. People are quickly drawn towards you.

You are natural, easy to like, and friendly. You seem very open and approachable; nothing about your personality makes other people nervous.

Sun sextile Ascendant means that you also appear quite positive, especially when others first meet you. There is a sense of authority about you, but you come across as quite sincere instead of egotistical. 

You also appear to be quite truthful. It’s rare for someone to question if you were telling the truth after meeting you. This is because you seem so self-aware and self-expressive.

Generally, Sun sextile Ascendant means that you’re outgoing. Keep in mind that this is flavored by the signs that both planets are in. A Cancer Ascendant individual will be less outgoing than someone with a Leo Ascendant. 

However, Sun sextile Ascendant also means that you quickly grow bored or restless. You may move around a lot or bounce from thing to thing, especially in your younger years.

You have the opportunity to develop important leadership skills with this placement. You can cultivate a powerful, charismatic energy that takes you far in life.

With Sun sextile Ascendant, you also have the opportunity to develop into someone who flourishes in the public eye. However, unlike the trine, this will take a bit of work. Sun sextile Ascendant means that these outgoing, authoritative qualities aren’t totally natural to you, but they will be relatively easy to develop.

Remember to use your skills for good and for the benefit of others as well as yourself.

Sun Opposition Ascendant

With Sun opposition Ascendant, you struggle to fully express your identity unless you’re in a relationship. You need a companion to feel complete.

This partner may be a friend, business associate, or romantic significant other. This isn’t a solely romantic aspect. In fact, you probably feel more complete being around an enemy than you do by yourself. 

You may not stay single for very long. If you are single, then you’ll need someone else by your side, such as a partner or best friend. This is also a common aspect for twins. You simply can’t truly express your identity unless you have someone else to help you do so.

There may be a conflict with how you express yourself if you have the Sun opposition Ascendant aspect. You feel as though everyone gets the wrong impression of you. For example, you may come off as soft (when you feel tough or cold inside) or vice-versa. Look at the signs that the Sun opposition Ascendant aspect sits in to determine how this happens.

You may have insecurities about the qualities of your rising sign, or may dislike that other people see you as this sign. It’s very common for people with Sun opposition Ascendant to feel disconnected from their rising sign, as though it isn’t really them, or is a false perception of who they are.

With Sun opposition Ascendant, you achieve confidence through intimate relationships. You need to get close enough to someone to reveal this hidden side of you.

Sometimes, you may attract partners who are more like your Sun sign than you are, at least outwardly.

Alternatively, this Sun conjunct Ascendant aspect can mean that you seek out approval from other people in order to feel confident. It’s as though your core sense of self is hidden, so you look to other people to define it for you. Shadow work and therapy focusing on boundaries can be helpful with this issue.

Be careful with this Sun conjunct Ascendant aspect that you don’t rely on others to define yourself. Instead, work to develop an inner sense of self by accessing the shadow side.

Sun Square Ascendant

With the Sun square Ascendant aspect, you have low self-esteem around others. You may feel like you always present a “bad” or disjointed picture. This placement can cause a good deal of social anxiety.

You may feel that your true personality doesn’t line up with how others see you. It’s as though you wear a mask in public. When people get to know you intimately, they might confirm that you appear completely different upon first meeting than you truly are.

However, because you have a need for approval from others, you keep that mask up most of the time. Even though it probably doesn’t work well or make you feel good, the mask is all you know. Look to the sign that the Ascendant is in to see the qualities of this mask. You show the qualities of you Ascendant sign in public, but don’t feel that it’s truly who you are.

Early in life, you sacrificed what you wanted, such as your goals or ambitions. This was necessary to keep a relationship going or to keep those around you happy, but you built up resentment over time.

Teachers or other authority figures didn’t like or notice you with Sun conjunct Ascendant. You developed your Ascendant’s mask to try and make yourself more pleasing in some way, but it never truly worked.

You felt easily misunderstood. You were insecure about how you appeared to others, or you may have felt as though you were always an imposter.

In fact, Sun square Ascendant is all about imposter syndrome. It’s like you’re pretending to be someone else, someone who doesn’t have the same goals or values that you do. As you work to develop self-confidence, these two pieces will grow closer to each other.

You will come to realize with Sun square Ascendant that you must be your true self instead of following how others expect you to live. One of the benefits of this Sun square Ascendant placement is that it forces you to rely only on yourself.

Ultimately, you won’t gain self confidence with Sun square Ascendant until you break through and go after your goals. It isn’t an easy path, but following your inner ambition is the only way to get self-respect and feel truly confident in public. 

You probably won’t meet friends or partners who are truly right for you. There’s a lot of potential for shallow relationships with Sun square Ascendant. Others don’t appreciate you or put you down, but this will continue to happen until you let go of the past and focus on what’s good for you. It is only then that you will attract individuals who will lift you up.

With Sun square Ascendant, you are afraid that you will never grow into your full potential. The road ahead can feel really confusing. You can’t find a path to help people see who you really are.

The way through the difficulties of the Sun square Ascendant placement is to focus on your goals and beliefs rather than what others think of you. Action is really important here. You simply must do what feels right to you and your self-confidence will grow over time.

Keep in mind that you probably won’t ever be as charismatic as someone with Sun trine Ascendant might be. You do tend to get off on the wrong foot with others; they might even question your sincerity because they can feel that you’re not being your authentic self.

However, the goal with this placement isn’t to make others like you, but to have so many goals that feel right for you that you simply stop caring. Once you achieve this, you will appear much more authentic in public. Your mask will start to blend with your Sun Sign and others will see you as a mix of the two.

Venus-Pluto Aspects In The Natal Chart

Venus-Pluto Aspects In The Natal Chart

Venus-Pluto aspects are intense. In fact, these are some of the most difficult aspects to have in relationships.

We all crave intimacy, but people with Venus-Pluto aspects confuse power, control, or obsession with intimacy and love. It’s hard for them to figure out what is fulfilling versus what is painful. Sometimes, pleasure and pain are intrinsically linked.

Although these Venus-Pluto aspects are all a bit extreme, they’re also transformative. If you’re willing to put in the work, your Venus-Pluto aspects can truly change your life and help you to create the kind of intimate, loving relationships you desire.

Venus Conjunct Pluto

Venus conjunct Pluto in the natal chart means that you are naturally intense in love. You experience a lot of instant attraction when you’re single and generally enter into karmic relationships.

You might feel like your relationships are unusually powerful. Venus conjunct Pluto is all about power and control. This can be a positive factor, but your partnerships also have the potential to end badly if control becomes the driving force.

Look to your Venus sign and learn about the qualities, but then realize that all of these attributes are modified by Pluto. With Venus conjunct Pluto, your Venus sign becomes more intense, passionate, and deep, but it can also be more jealous, possessive, or obsessive.

Venus conjunct Pluto indicates that it’s easy for you to fall into toxic relationships. In fact, it can be quite difficult for you to find a relationship with a balanced amount of power on each side.

You find it easy to attract partners and may not be single very often, unless by choice. However, you also attract partners who have a darker nature. You either control others or allow yourself to be controlled.

In life, not only in relationships, you are attracted to mystery and seduction. The darker side of things is intriguing because of Venus conjunct Pluto.

Venus conjunct Pluto can lead to destructive, toxic relationships if you have other difficult elements in your chart. The lower your self-esteem, the more likely you are to stay in a harmful partnership.

At the extremes, Venus conjunct Pluto means that you may become a victim of betrayal or abuse. This can be a truly difficult aspect, depending on the signs and house.

However, you’re also drawn to people with a dark side, including those with addictions, a painful childhood, trauma, mental illness, or abusive behaviors. How this plays out will depend on the sign and house that Venus conjunct Pluto is in.

In general, you are drawn to those who seem unlovable by the outside world. It is the power imbalance that fuels you, although you aren’t necessarily seeking power for yourself.

It’s hard for you to distinguish between pain and pleasure. You may chase pain because you think that it will bring you the intimacy you crave, then you feel let down when this believe is revealed to be false. 

Ultimately with Venus conjunct Pluto, you simply want intimacy and loyalty. These qualities are difficult for you to find because of your relationship methods. Most of your partnerships feel vaguely dark, intense, or obsessive, and you just don’t know how to turn a relationship into what you desire while maintaining the intensity.

You have transformative relationships, for good or for bad. To transmute Venus conjunct Pluto and use this aspect for its highest good, you must first develop a sense of self.

Once you have self-worth, you will start to attract partners who transform you in a positive way. In fact, Pluto conjunct Venus can be truly transformative like nothing other placement.

Eventually, you will transform yourself through relationships. Keep in mind that this takes a lot of work. You will need to continuously say no to relationships if you’re not getting what you deserve. 

Once you do find a partner who you feel you can trust, there will still be some mud to slog through. Venus conjunct Pluto never disappears, but the lessons will be less cruel and more uplifting. This is when you will be transformed for good.

Venus conjunct Pluto means that you have the potential to transform yourself through love. This can be self-love as well as romantic.

Venus Trine Pluto

Venus trine Pluto is a much easier aspect than the conjunction, but it can also create a variety of issues. After all, almost no aspect with Pluto is truly easy.

With Venus trine Pluto, you are drawn to intense relationships naturally. You know when you feel it for someone and you’re all in. You probably experience a lot of love at first sight.

Around others, you appear powerful and confident about yourself. This creates a magnetic aura that attracts those who enjoy basking in the glow of power. People are naturally drawn to you.

You probably love the attention that you get because of this Venus trine Pluto placement. Even though it’s an easier placement, you can still go too far when you’re enjoying your natural power. You’d like to have the upper hand, when possible.

You aren’t superficial in love. Venus by itself can indicate superficiality, but Venus trine Pluto creates a deeper, more intense nature in relationships.

Unless you have other aspects that dilute it, Venus trine Pluto usually means that you’re very sexual. Most sexual experiences feel natural to you, and the dynamics of power and control don’t scare you.

The best part of Venus trine Pluto is that you’re naturally growing throughout your life. This mainly happens through being in relationships. You’re always questioning things, always digging deeper, and continuously figuring out what love means to you. This isn’t as painful as some of the other aspects, but is simply a natural part of your existence.

Venus trine Pluto is a lovely aspect because you reap all of the benefits of the transformative nature of Pluto without as much of the pain. You may still feel obsession or encounter control issues, but these problems are easier to work through.

Venus Sextile Pluto

With Venus sextile Pluto, you have the opportunity to transform yourself through relationships. Although you are naturally attracted to transformational relationships, whether they are happy or painful, you must seize these opportunities and do the work in order to morph into the highest version of yourself.

You probably feel quite intensely with Venus sextile Pluto. Love and relationships are really important to you. Your partnerships are never without a degree of intensity.

However, with the Venus sextile Pluto aspect, you can simply ignore these qualities if you wish. Your soul wants to transform through relationships, but whether or not this happens is up to you.

To properly utilize Venus sextile Pluto, you should first work on your inner being and find your sense of self, then begin to define what a relationship means to you and what you would like to gain from love.

Venus Opposition Pluto

With the Venus opposition Pluto aspect, you experience instant attraction. Your relationships are extremely intense right from the start.

Once you’re in a relationship, you then deal with manipulation and control. In fact, you typically feel powerless in relationships, so you must turn to manipulation to get what you need.

It’s easy with Venus opposition Pluto for you to get caught up in trying to make things “appear” a certain way. You may ignore what’s truly going on in the relationship.

Venus opposition Pluto means that you want an air of beauty, so you pretend that there is no darkness underneath. This is ultimately because you don’t respect yourself enough to set boundaries and stop putting up with the control or anger from your partner. You believe that the relationship appearing perfect is the best you can get.

Power struggles are common in your relationships if you have the Venus opposition Pluto aspect. You may feel that you have to give up your personal power in order to actually have a relationship. You respond with manipulation or passive-aggressive tactics because this is the only way you can regain a semblance of control.

You probably feel that others don’t actually love you. In order to feel something like love, you must coerce others to show appreciation. Love and power are confused in the Venus opposition Pluto relationship. You’re not sure if someone having power over you means that they love you, or if you love them.

With the Venus opposition Pluto aspect in your natal chart, you actually meet the darker side of yourself in relationships. This shadow self shows up in your partners, however it actually reflects what lives inside you. Relationships are a good way to work through your inner demons, but you may start to see your partner as a representative of you rather than a separate individual.

It can feel almost impossible to separate from a partner. This is because you begin to see them as an extension of you, so no matter how hard it gets, you feel that you would be losing a piece of yourself should the relationship end.

You simultaneously have a fear of being dissolved through relationships. With Venus opposition Pluto, you see your relationships as a reflection of yourself, so it’s easy to forget where you end and your partner begins. This can cause you to disrespect yourself in relationship.

It’s important that you learn to stop letting others manipulate you. You’re always at the risk of being taken advantage of. In extreme cases, this can result in physical or sexual violence, so it’s essential that you learn to set clear boundaries.

With Venus opposition Pluto, the most important lesson is to figure out that your partner is separate from you own core self. You must develop a stronger sense of self in order to see this.

The first step is to become less concerned with how you appear and what your relationship looks like. Focus more on what’s actually underneath. What is the relationship truly made of? What do you truly want out of love?

As you work on your inner child and sense of self, you will begin to answer these questions for yourself, instead of answering in a way that makes your relationship look ideal.

Venus Square Pluto

At its core, Venus square Pluto simply means that love hurts. This is a difficult aspect to have in your birth chart.

This doesn’t mean that it’s impossible to deal with. In fact, Venus square Pluto can be transmuted. It’s possible to have a truly beautiful relationship when you come out on the other side! This simply takes a lot of work.

You are attracted to “bad” types, whatever that means for you. This is because you mistake power and control for intimacy. It’s difficult for you to tell the difference between obsession and love.

Venus square Pluto means that you don’t know how to get your needs met in a relationship. You simply haven’t learned the skills that you need to adequately express yourself.

This Venus square Pluto aspect creates a feeling of being perpetually stuck. You are torn in between the sweetness of Venus and the fear and control of Pluto.

In a relationship, manipulation may be your defense mechanism of choice. You probably don’t feel secure in relationships very often. You may feel ashamed because you have basic needs. Instead of asking for what you need, you manipulate your partner to try and gain it. This doesn’t often work and is actually a method of self-sabotage.

You simply don’t know how to get your needs met; you may not even know what you need. It’s difficult for you to say what you mean or to even figure it out for yourself. Of course, this is where you must begin the Venus square Pluto work.

Vulnerability is difficult for you. You feel vulnerable almost all of the time in relationships, even though you also desire intense, deep emotions. You get extremely defensive at the first sign of a slight because it’s so difficult for you to reveal these parts of yourself.

With Venus square Pluto, you really just crave intimacy, but you don’t even know what this means. You were born without the basic skills to have a happy and successful relationship, so these are things you need to develop now.

Your relationships are black or white. Venus square Pluto means that you might love then hate, or swing back and forth quite rapidly. You can be controlling or paranoid with your partner. Sometimes these fears are warranted, based on the characters you attract, but it’s hard for you to be grounded in reality and figure out what’s true. You might even feel like your intuition is simply missing when it comes to relationships.

A lack of boundaries is one of the biggest issues with this Venus square Pluto placement. When you’re in a relationship, you don’t know how to differentiate between the feelings of your partner and your own emotions. You are either overly dependent or attract partners who must depend on you.

Venus square Pluto is all about fear. Your terror keeps you from truly going deep, so you manipulate others on a surface level to avoid looking at the things you’re afraid of. Although you desire close bonds, you also feel extremely vulnerable when things get too intimate. 

Typically, your relationships get quite heated. They can be full of anger, fighting, power struggles, control, and manipulation. You’re never quite satisfied with your relationships, but Venus square Pluto makes it hard to know what you do want. Both sex and love are used as weapons with Venus square Pluto. True intimacy is rare; you may not even know what it is.

You probably love forbidden things or go after forbidden partners, but this is only because you’re substituting the idea of taboo love for true intimacy. You might think that if your partner is obsessed with you then they love you, yet this is not the truth.

Venus square Pluto means that you are either controlling or controlled. You might obsess over your partner, or you find partners who are jealous and obsessive towards you. Sometimes, it’s a bit of both. You need a certain level of intensity in a relationship in order to feel anything, so you may actually think that obsession is good.

It is this very intensity that can bring about positive transformation. Your core self must be transformed through relationships. Fear must turn to love, but this takes a lot of growth. In order to do this work, you must actively be in relationships. This is the only way to bring about the intense transformation that Venus square Pluto demands.

You may fear introspection, but it is necessary to learn. Venus square Pluto takes a long time to transmute. You will have to figure things out one at a time, learning lesson after lesson in relationship. Don’t shy away from pain; instead, learn from it. Dive deep and do everything you can when something difficult happens to figure out how you feel and why.

Eventually, you can have extremely fulfilling relationships, even with Venus square Pluto. You will certainly know a lot more about yourself by the end! With the right partner, after doing the work, you can see into your partner’s soul and been seen for who you truly are.

With Venus square Pluto, you must learn to love yourself before you can learn to love others. You must also figure out how to be vulnerable. Once you have a sense of self-worth, you will find that vulnerability is much easier. Work on your core self and develop your own sense of self. You will then have your own mind and intuition as the basis of any relationship.

Moon-Saturn Aspects In The Synastry Chart

Moon-Saturn Aspects In The Synastry Chart

In astrology, Saturn is the serious, mature individual, while the Moon is the inner, emotional self. These two are virtual opposites, so in the synastry chart, Saturn-Moon aspects can be quite difficult.

However, these aspects are great for growth. If you see a Saturn-Moon aspect in your synastry chart with your partner, you’ll know that you have an opportunity to learn a lot from each other.

With any of these Saturn-Moon aspects, the Saturn person feels mature, serious, and reserved, while the Moon person can be over-emotional or childlike. It’s easy for the Saturn person to feel overwhelmed by the emotional nature of their partner, yet the Moon person can also feel emotionally oppressed.

Ultimately, these aspects are like relationship-glue. Even if both partners are unhappy, they’re often drawn to stay together. Saturn creates long-term relationships. However, the success of the relationship will depend on the emotional maturity of both people.

Any Moon-Saturn aspect sign can be used for good, but it takes work. If both people are emotionally immature, then even the Moon trine Saturn synastry aspect will feel difficult and painful. If both partners are emotionally mature, then even the square aspect can feel easy. These aspects depend quite a bit on where both people are in terms of managing their own emotions and needs.

Although these Moon-Saturn aspects are difficult and painful, they also help you deal with your issues in a relationship. If you have one of these aspects, then you can be sure that you will be pushed to learn and grow.

There are typically issues of dependency and security with these aspects. One or both people may feel a heavy sense of responsibility, or they may even act out parent-child roles.

Keep in mind that all of these Moon-Saturn aspect descriptions depend greatly on the signs of the planets. For example, a Capricorn moon sign will be able to deal with these aspects more easily because they aren’t too emotional. Their emotions won’t trigger Saturn as much.

However, a Cancer moon sign is someone who needs a lot of emotional support, so the lack of nurture from the Saturn partner will create more problems.

With any Moon-Saturn aspects, the Saturn person has the tendency to be cold or rigid. They may shut the Moon person down or withdraw when their emotional reactions feel too extreme. However, they can also bring structure to the Moon person and learn to stick up for themselves instead of retreating.

The Moon person has the tendency to be over-emotional, illogical, or even manipulative. They probably try to force the Saturn person to adhere to what they need emotionally instead of looking at the relationship as a partnership. Ideally, they will learn emotional balance, self-sufficiency, and how to better explain and obtain what they need emotionally. They can also learn how to balance their own emotional needs with those of their partner.

Moon Conjunct Saturn Synastry

The Moon conjunct Saturn synastry aspect indicates a serious, heavy bond. This relationship has a strong air of responsibility. These partners may also feel bound to each other in some way.

At times, the Moon person can feel limited with the Moon conjunct Saturn synastry aspect. They might intuitively know that they can’t express the full range of their moon sign, or that they must hide their emotions in some way.

This is because the Saturn person limits without even realizing it. The Moon person might feel constrained in some way, especially in the sign/house that this Moon conjunct Saturn synastry aspect sits in.

Sometimes, the Moon person also feels the need to censor their feelings of dependency. They feel  that the Saturn person doesn’t want them to appear too dependent or needy.

However, the Moon person greatly desires emotional intimacy with this Moon conjunct Saturn synastry aspect. They feel blocked from truly sharing their emotions in some way, whether this is because of external karmic reasons or because they know the Saturn person doesn’t wish for emotional closeness. The Moon person is probably scared of being “too much,” though they can’t help revealing their emotional nature at times.

Any relationship with this Moon conjunct Saturn synastry aspect can be serious and long-lasting. Sometimes, this aspect is the glue that holds a relationship together. The bond can be a bit painful, but it’s also strong and keeps both people coming back to each other.

Ultimately, this relationship can work for the better. The Saturn person can learn to be careful with the emotions of the Moon person. The Saturn individual can also help to give the Moon person direction in life.

The Moon person can learn healthy dependency and how to be with another person without becoming codependent. This is a painful journey for both people, but this Moon conjunct Saturn synastry aspect can create a great life-long learning opportunity.

This placement is all about balance. If you have this Moon conjunct Saturn synastry aspect and are the Moon individual, be careful not to censor your emotions too much. It’s essential that you share your true feelings without going overboard, or you will start to feel trapped.

Moon Trine Saturn Synastry

In some sense, both partners are there for each other. The Saturn person is a constant for the Moon person; they can always rely on them. Sometimes, the Saturn person gives more to the Moon person than they receive back, but they probably don’t mind very much.

This Moon trine Saturn synastry aspect creates the glue of the relationship. It makes these partners want to stay together and work through their issues. The relationship could get boring or stale over time because it can become very routine.

Moon Sextile Saturn Synastry

With the Moon sextile Saturn synastry aspect, there is an opportunity for both people to develop healthy emotional maturity in the relationship. However, this doesn’t come totally naturally, and this couple may need to work for a fulfilling end result.

The Moon individual can help the Saturn person work through their karma. The specifics of this karma will depend on the sign and house of this person’s Saturn sign.

On the other hand, the Saturn person can help the Moon to mature emotionally. They bring the structure and stability that the Moon person desperately needs.

With this Moon sextile Saturn synastry aspect, the Moon person can appear emotionally immature compared to the Saturn person. However, this relationship is a lovely opportunity to teach each other things that both people need to mature and grow.

This Moon sextile Saturn aspect can also mean that there is an opportunity for both people to work through issues with their respective parents. Sometimes, the couple is actually acting out parental roles when they first meet. The relationship will bring up issues of dependency or security, but this couple can work through those problems if they work to tackle them.

Ideally, the Saturn person will bring structure to the Moon individual. They will stick up for themselves and find time to work on their own feelings instead of taking on the Moon person’s emotions, which gives the Moon person the opportunity to mature emotionally.

Moon Opposition Saturn Synastry

This Moon opposition Saturn synastry aspect means that these individuals have opposite reactions to circumstances. The Saturn person might appear overly rigid while the Moon person seems too emotional. When things happen in life, each person simply cannot understand why the other reacts in the opposite way.

In the relationship, the Saturn person can be domineering while the Moon individual is overly emotional or even childish. The Moon person might try to find happiness in the Saturn person instead of within themselves.

Sometimes with this Moon opposition Saturn synastry aspect, there is fear surrounding the stability of the relationship. One or both of these people might feel insecure or have a deep inner fear that the other will betray them.

Typically, the Moon person is afraid of being vulnerable or emotionally injured. The Saturn person fears losing control or getting stuck in an unstable relationship.

Both people with this Moon opposition Saturn synastry aspect may need a lot of reassurance in different ways. This relationship can quickly become emotionally draining, but this is because neither person is getting to the root of the problem and working on their own issues. Instead, they try to change the other.

The goal in this Moon opposition Saturn synastry relationship is for the Saturn person to learn how to work with others’ emotions instead of shutting them down. The Moon individual needs to find happiness within instead of clinging to the Saturn person in order to escape their own unhappiness.

Moon Square Saturn Synastry

With this Moon square Saturn synastry aspect, the Moon person usually feels limited by the Saturn person. The Moon person responds to situations in an emotional manner and may feel judged by the Saturn person when they have these knee-jerk reactions.

The Saturn person might see the Moon person as oversensitive or too defensive. They may feel that there’s little room to share their own feelings because the Moon person’s emotions are seen as more important. Ultimately, neither person feels totally comfortable opening up to each other.

This Moon square Saturn synastry aspect can be extreme with either person. For example, the Saturn individual could be extremely cold and controlling, or the Moon person could be incredibly oversensitive, manipulative, and illogical.

Sometimes, both people are at the extremes, although often one individual is more extreme than the other, depending on the placement, sign, and house of the Moon square Saturn synastry aspect. 

With this Moon square Saturn synastry aspect, the Saturn person must learn to work with the emotional nature of the Moon person. Although the Moon person isn’t always rational, they usually have a good reason for what they feel underneath. The Saturn person needs to dig to figure out the Moon person’s true motives.

On the other hand, the Moon person must learn that the Saturn person does need structure in place over time so that they know what to expect. It’s painful for them to be at the whims of the Moon individual’s emotions.

This Moon square Saturn synastry aspect has a lot to do with understanding. If it feels like both people are always on opposite pages then therapy can be helpful. Both parties have very different types of emotional expression, but they must work to understand how they each feel and express their feelings before there will be true contentment in the relationship.

Illusions can be stripped away with hard work. With the Moon square Saturn synastry aspect, both people don’t understand what lies at the core of the other. They must dig to learn the other person on a new level. It is uncomfortable work, but this aspect can push both towards intense emotional growth, if they’re willing to put the work in.

Venus In Libra In The Natal Chart

Venus In Libra In The Natal Chart

Venus in Libra is a placement that feel super natural. Libra is one of the rulers of Venus; both are about beauty, harmony, relationships, and all things aesthetically pleasing.

Generally, Venus shows how we act when it comes to money, our style, how we enjoy ourselves, our values, and how we attract others and behave in relationships.

Venus In Libra Characteristics

Venus rules so many areas that the characteristics of your Venus sign can have a large impact on your entire life. Here are the main ways that Venus in Libra shows up.

Money and Style:

Venus in Libra means that you probably don’t focus on money a lot. If you do, this will be because of other placements n your chart. Venus in Libra cares more about balance than about accumulating wealth.

For example, someone with Venus in Libra and Mars in Leo might care about money quite a bit, but this is because of their Mars sign rather than Venus.

Whether you dress fashionably or not, something about the way you appear feels put-together and non-threatening. You have your own unique sense of style that you never have to question.

In the area of the house that Venus in Libra is in, you’re elegant and graceful. You may even be charming. You know how to do things well without going overboard.

Anything tacky or overdone will be abhorrent to you. Grace is important in all things. You’re good at putting people at ease and your style probably reflects this.

Pleasure:

With Venus in Libra, you enjoy spending time with other people. Social interactions and stimulating conversations make you happy.

You may also enjoy art, music, poetry, writing, or culture. You have a keen mind and want to use it in some way. This can vary from person to person with Venus in Libra, but you usually need some interesting outlet or way to express yourself.

For example, one person with Venus in Libra might be into punk rock and participate in a band. Yet another may love learning, especially philosophy, and focus on a lot of reading and writing.

With Venus in Libra, you enjoy anything that feels harmonious and pleasant. In general, you don’t like discord.

You also like to please people. This will be especially evident in the area of the house that your Venus in Libra is in. It can make you happy to please others, especially the people you care about most.

Values:

You value being around other people. As a Venus in Libra person, you probably care a lot about your partnerships and relationships.

Because of this, you may go to great lengths to avoid fights. Peace is extremely important to you and is one of your core values. You’re good at balancing things in a group; you’re the person to notice when one member is unhappy.

You also care about fairness in all things, especially friendships and romance. Sometimes, this can be a bit at odds with your need for peace. Depending on the situation, you will either acquiesce to avoid fighting, or you will stand up for your beliefs to get justice.

These values will be especially evident in the house that your Venus is in.

Attraction:

With Venus in Libra, you attract others by appearing intelligent, well-mannered, and put-together in appearance. You’re also pretty witty and mentally sharp.

You have an interesting mind, but you know how to use your wit in a social way. Unlike other intellectual astrology signs, you aren’t removed from society. People are attracted to your keen sense of intellect. Your intellect is quite charming.

When you want to impress someone else, you will try to turn on the charm. You use a mix of kindness and intellect that’s very subtle. No one with Venus in Libra will want to be the loudest person in the room; you just want to be the most poised and interesting.

Sometimes, you may be a bit disingenuous when you’re flirting because you want to be liked. This can even happen in your platonic relationships.

With Venus in Libra, you’re good at “mirroring” other people and showing them what they want to see. You can easily conform to many situations, but this drains you because you must hide your true self. It also makes it difficult for other people to really get to know you.

You’re attracted to people who are aesthetically agreeable and nice. You don’t like anyone too aggressive, abrasive, or extreme. Anything pleasing is exactly what you want.

Romance, such as candles or flowers, may be important to you, but you also value good conversation and shared activities. You need a mental connection to really be into someone.

When you do meet someone you like, you’re all in right away. With Venus in Libra, you don’t like to be alone.

Relationships/Sex:

When you’re in a relationship as a Venus in Libra, you simply want fairness. You will treat the other person how you want to be treated. 

Sometimes, you can go overboard with your emphasis on fairness. Be careful that you don’t keep score. Try to let reciprocation come a bit more naturally.

You might get upset if you feel that you put a lot of effort into pleasing your partner and don’t get an equal amount of effort returned. Big blowouts aren’t your style (although this is influenced by your Mars) so you quietly build up resentment. Sometimes, this comes out sideways in a passive-aggressive manner to “settle the score.”

Venus in Libra means that you really want your relationships to work. You may have a fear of being alone, so you might gloss over the bad issues. You turn yourself into a martyr, but then feel turned off and emotionally distanced from your partner.

Because you aim to please in general, you might attract bullies. This can be in a romantic manner or platonically.

With Venus in Libra, you have a very polished manner in love. You avoid aggression and overly-emotional displays. This can sometimes make your partners feel like you’re not invested, but you show your commitment through actions. It’s easy for you to go overboard trying to please your partner in many small ways.

When it comes to communication, you always want tact. Anything too uncouth or abrasive will turn you off. The best style of communication for you is fair and balanced without talks too much emotion.

Sexually, you also enjoy the finer things. You might like the whole act to be beautiful rather than aggressive or primal. In fact, you probably don’t enjoy anything super messy, although this will depend a lot on your Mars placement.

Intellectual simulation is what gets you going initially. You simply must have a good mental bond with your partner in order to feel sexual. A little romance never hurts, too!

Generally with Venus in Libra, you treat your partners how you want to be treated. If you get this reciprocation back, then you’re happy as a clam. Problems only arise when you feel that you’re being treated unfairly but don’t stick up for yourself.

Venus In Libra: Best & Worst Qualities

With any placement, there are positive qualities as well as difficult traits. No one individual will have all of these attributes because each Venus placement is unique depending on the house and aspects. These are qualities that these folks can have, but you’ll have to look to the individual to see what fits.

Best:

  • Cogenial
  • Peaceful
  • Affectionate
  • Romantic
  • Poised
  • Refined
  • Intellectual
  • Social
  • Balanced
  • Harmonious
  • Diplomatic
  • Fair

Worst:

  • Non-Confrontational
  • Passive
  • Resentful
  • People-Pleasers
  • Powerless
  • Overly-Attached
  • Needy
  • Chameleon

Venus In Libra: Man Versus Woman

This part can get a little confusing, so bear with me as I explain it. Basically, Venus shows itself differently for someone with more masculine energy than it does for someone with more feminine energy.

It’s up to you to choose with energy you identify with more. If you’re unsure, I recommend reading the description of each energy for Venus in Libra (below) and choosing what resonates with you.

Generally, in a woman (or someone with feminine energy), Venus will show how the person acts and what vibes they gives off towards others. When this person is flirting, they will assume many of the qualities of Venus in Libra. These Libran qualities will show up directly in the personality.

In a man (or someone with masculine energy), Venus will show what kind of qualities they are attracted to. How this person will act depends on their Mars sign, but their Venus sign dictates what types of energy they are drawn towards in a partner.

As we evolve and change and the gender lines blur, these distinctions become less absolute. For example, I find that most women will show a lot of the qualities of their Venus when they’re flirting, but a few of their Mars qualities will bleed through also.

It’s important to learn about both Venus and Mars. Each person has a unique combination of both qualities, although this combination may be swayed slightly depending on the person’s gender.

Lastly, a man who is ultra-comfortable with his sexuality will display many more of his Venus qualities, while a man who struggles with his sexuality probably won’t “own” these Venusian qualities, so he will instead look for them in a female partner.

Venus In Libra Man

The Venus in Libra man is charming and charismatic when he wants to be. He may not always feel that he’s the most important person in the room, but he has a witty, intellectual appeal that is quiet yet strong.

He is attracted to beauty, grace, and to his “ideal woman.” Sometimes, this man might create an image of his ideal woman in his mind. He will be disappointed when he finds that she doesn’t actually exist.

Alternatively, when this man meets someone he may “beef up” her qualities in his mind. Again, he will be let down when he figures out that the woman in reality is much different than the picture in his head.

He might also get into relationships that are shallow, or he may attract superficial women. He could create an intellectual personality for his partner in his head because he likes the physical look of the woman in front of him.

Sometimes, the Venus in Libra man has a secret desire to be part of the “it” couple. This doesn’t always work out for him, but it can be a motivation for entering into a relationship.

The Venus in Libra man won’t be attracted to the most brash woman in the room. Coarseness, crudeness, and loudness are big turn-offs for him. 

Instead, he will look for someone smart and balanced. Although he is definitely attracted to looks (like any Libra placement), he also loves understated charm and simple but clean beauty. He actually wants his partner to feel beautiful rather than just appear like a trophy.

He is attracted to people who makes him feel balanced, romantically or platonically. When he feels off-kilter around someone, he will probably want to get away from them.

In a relationship, the Venus in Libra man looks for balance. He will work really hard to please someone he loves, but he also wants to be treated fairly.  The Venus in Libra man will grow unhappy over time if he believes that he is giving too much. He will build up resentment towards his partner. 

This man can have some abandonment issues and a secret desire to complete himself through a relationship. This probably won’t be obvious on a conscious level, but this is usually why he must be in a relationship. He will give quite a bit in order to keep a relationship, yet he becomes unhappy in the long run.

The Venus in Libra man wants his relationships to be easy and peaceful. He has a tendency to lie in order to keep the peace.

This is when his values conflict. He wants peace, but he also wants fairness and balance. Sometimes, the Venus in Libra man just can’t figure out how to have both in a partnership.

The Venus in Libra man is really sensitive to the needs of his partner. He is a pleaser and can be a wonderful person to be in a relationship with. However, his partners need to be careful to notice if he is avoiding the truth or not speaking up when he needs something.

He has trouble telling the hard truths because he doesn’t want to upset anyone or to fight. Over time, this can cause serious problems. He will build up resentment towards his partner until he fights back in passive-aggressive ways or leaves the relationship altogether.

In general, the Venus in Libra man is a really lovely individual. He is intellectual, creative, and interesting. He’s a true gentleman – he would never leave someone in trouble and has a caring heart.

The goal for the Venus in Libra man is to learn to stick up for himself in assertive, constructive ways before resentment builds up within him.

Venus In Libra Woman

The Venus in Libra woman is super perceptive. She’s sensitive to the needs of others, to what others want to her, and to the sense of give and take in a relationship.

She works very hard to keep things balanced and to be what others want. She might adapt her personality to suit the nature of the people she’s with.

In fact, the Venus in Libra woman can be something of a chameleon. She’s very good at changing the way she talks, moves, and acts in order to make other people feel comfortable.

Secretly, the Venus in Libra woman wants to be liked. It’s extremely difficult and upsetting for her when someone actively dislikes her. She will feel afraid and alone.

When she’s just getting to know a potential partner, she is very graceful and intellectual. She’s good at noticing what her partner likes about her and adapting to fit the situation.

In a relationship, the Venus in Libra woman is very skilled at smoothing ruffled feathers. She is definitely the ideal woman to keep the peace.

Ultimately, she is afraid of losing her partner and being alone. The Venus in Libra woman needs a relationship more than any other Venus placement. She feels defective or even useless without a partner.

However, she treats her partner as she would like to treated. She supports her partner’s individuality and notices the small things about them. The Venus in Libra woman just wants the same treatment in return. She wants to be noticed, too. It can be extremely hurtful for her to be ignored; she will be crushed if her partner doesn’t reciprocate her efforts.

Sometimes, the Venus in Libra woman will give her personal power away in order to stay in a relationship. When she gives up a vital piece of herself, she is left feeling powerless and empty. If something does go wrong with a partner, she may feel that she’ll never be whole again.

She wants to be admired for her intelligence and inner value. The Venus in Libra woman doesn’t want to be treated like a trophy, even though she does value aesthetically pleasing beauty. Ultimately, she wants her partner to notice what’s inside of her.

Sexually, the Venus in Libra woman might be more excited by fantasy and romance than by actual sex. She easily detaches from the more realistic elements of lovemaking and focuses on the ideal, but she is disappointed in real life when things are messy or dirty.

Mars-Sun Aspects In Synastry

Mars-Sun Aspects In Synastry

In the synastry chart, aspects are just as important as the actual placements of planets. Aspects show how you relate to your partner and what issues you may encounter in your relationship. Mars-Sun aspects are all about your drive, motivation, and physical attraction.

Mars-Sun aspects will dictate how much you can “feel” each other’s physical presences. It also shows your compatibility in energy levels, time spent together, and sexual preferences.

However, keep in mind that other aspects also contribute to your hobbies and sexual compatibility as a couple. Mars-Sun aspects will definitely give you some insight into your relationship, but take these descriptions with a grain of salt. You have an entire chart that describes your relationships, not just this one aspect.

Sun Conjunct Mars Synastry:

With the Sun conjunct Mars synastry aspect, there is a strong physical connection. The Mars person specifically feels sexually attracted to the Sun person, but there is definitely physical compatibility in general.

This can be an intense but volatile relationship. It’s a major aspect in the synastry chart that is important to delve into. With the Sun conjunct Mars synastry aspect, both people probably get energy just from being around each other, but too much energy can be a bad thing.

Typically, the energy will build up and result in either explosive arguments or intense sexual relationships.

The Sun conjunct Mars synastry aspect is highly charged. Both people know how to push each other’s buttons, yet they’re also physically attracted to each other.

In the Sun conjunct Mars synastry relationship, it’s easy for either person to get super defensive. Logic is hard to come by.

The Mars person in particular can get defensive if they feel that the Sun person is too judgmental or condescending.  The Mars individual can also feel like the Sun person is too direct or pushy. There is usually a battle of wills in this relationship. 

However, this Sun conjunct Mars synastry aspect can be beneficial, too. Both partners know how to get each other moving. Even being around each other motivates them! This is a lovely aspect if you need to work or accomplish something together.

A lot of how this aspect manifests will depend on the sign that the conjunction is in. For example, the Sun conjunct Mars synastry aspect in Aries will be a lot more angry and explosive than the aspect in Cancer, which will be much more passive-aggressive and emotional.

Usually, there is a level of competition between the partners, but there is a strong attraction even through this competitive energy.

If you have the Sun conjunct Mars synastry aspect, you’re physically compatible with your partner and have similar energetic levels. You probably have similar ways of expressing yourselves sexually, although this is only one aspect of many placements when it comes to physical compatibility.

Ideally, both partners with the Sun conjunct Mars synastry aspect will help their partner work towards their goals and empower them to get moving and face obstacles. At their best, this pair will encourage each other to express themselves.

Work to express this aspect in a motivational or sexual way rather than through anger or aggression. The energy will build up and must come out somewhere, but it’s up to you to decide how this happens.

Sun Trine Mars Synastry:

With the Sun trine Mars synastry aspect, the timing of the relationship is especially fortuitous. Both people have a similar rhythm in life. Neither person wants more than the other can give, and these partners are generally on the same page.

There is probably a healthy competition between the partners with the Sun trine Mars synastry aspect that motivates these folks. They push each other to succeed but also know when to step back and let the other person have breathing room.

Both the Sun and the Mars person respect each other’s individuality. They don’t overstep when their partner is doing something important; they probably aren’t overly needy in these areas.

This Sun trine Mars synastry aspect indicates a mutually supportive, well-balanced relationship. Each partner may be motivated to do slightly different things, but they are able to respect each other’s interests. It just feels natural.

When it comes to hobbies and activities, the Sun trine Mars synastry aspect means that both partners are usually on the same wavelength. If one partner likes to go out to each a few times of week, the other partner probably feels the same. They’re in synch, for the most part.

If this is a romantic relationship, both partners are attracted to each other. The Mars person in particular is sexually attracted to the Sun person.

This couple is on the same page when it comes to their sex life, too. They probably have mutual likes/dislikes, or they can easily respect what the other person wants.

This Sun trine Mars synastry aspect usually means that both partners want physical touch and attention a similar amount.

They are comfortable expressing their sexual needs to each other without judgment. It’s an easy aspect to have in a relationship.

Ultimately, if you have this Sun trine Mars aspect, you are relaxed and in tune with your partner. You respond to each other’s needs automatically, whether these needs are physical or emotional. You have both affection and passion in the relationship.

Sun Sextile Mars Synastry:

With the Sun sextile Mars synastry aspect, there is an opportunity to create an exciting and motivating relationship.

The Mars person is typically attracted to the Sun person’s strong personality. The Sun person probably has a lot of ambition and this intrigues the Mars person. 

While the Sun sextile Mars synastry aspect means that there is an opportunity to develop a strong sexual spark, this might not happen immediately. The couple will need to communicate and work towards achieving a fulfilling sexual relationship.

There is also the opportunity to develop good timing and balance in the relationship. This Sun sextile Mars synastry aspect has a lot to do with balance.

At first, things might feel a bit off, but with a bit of communication and trial/error, the couple can learn to balance both of their needs. They must figure out what works for them as a couple specifically.

If you have the Sun sextile Mars aspect in synastry with your partner, you probably enjoy many activities together.

You can easily find hobbies or things to do that you both appreciate. You may also motivate each other and work well as a team when starting a new business venture.

There may be a bit of friendly competition with this aspect. Be careful that this remains healthy (as it certainly can be) and doesn’t turn too competitive or nasty. With the Sun sextile Mars synastry aspect, you must actively work to encourage each other.

However, you most likely have similar energy levels, making it easier to work together on just about anything.

Sun Opposition Mars Synastry:

The Sun opposition Mars synastry aspect is a strong indicator of sexual attraction. In the beginning of the relationship, these people were probably very attracted to each other physically.

However, as the relationship progresses, there can be many ego clashes in the relationship. These must be dealt with if the relationship is to survive.

Sun opposition Mars synastry denotes conflict and power struggles. Each partner may try to dominate the other or “win” in some way.

The timing in the relationship might feel off. Sometimes, this couple has totally different needs concerning timing. When one person wants space the other person needs attention, then this dynamic swaps.

The Sun opposition Mars synastry aspect means that these partners can have a passionate sexual relationship, but ego clashes can get in the way of this. Both partners often feel defensive, which may kill their attraction to each other.

There can also be sexual difficulties, especially with timing. When one partner wants physical touch, the other doesn’t, and vice-versa.

Their views, wants, and needs relating to sex might differ from each other. They probably don’t know how to communicate well in this area.

It’s difficult for this couple to express themselves appropriately. Both partners might feel that they just can’t exactly explain what they desire when they’re fighting or expressing their sexual needs.

There is the potential for a passionate relationship with the Sun opposition Mars synastry aspect, but there is also a lot of competition or challenges. However, this can actually push both partners to grow.

To succeed in this relationship, the couple needs to work hard to find balance and get both of their needs filled. They will also need a lot of communication surrounding their sex life in a way that doesn’t make the other feel defensive.

Luckily, all of these differences can be resolved over time with effective communication.

Sun Square Mars Synastry:

With the Sun square Mars synastry aspect, there is a lot of physical and sexual attraction, especially at first. Squares create energy, so there may actually be a stronger magnetic pull with this Sun square Mars synastry aspect than with others, like the sextile.

However, over time, both partners can start to feel annoyed by virtually everything about each other. They rub each other wrong and know how to get under each other’s skin. They may find themselves wondering what they saw in the other.

The Sun square Mars synastry aspect has a lot to do with ego. Both partners find their egos getting triggered often; they then react to the other in an impulsive or angry manner.

When arguing, the Sun person might come off as self-righteous or as a bit of a know-it-all. The Mars person will be both defensive and angry. They may initiate the “explosive” parts of the arguments because the Sun person just doesn’t let up.

The Sun square Mars synastry aspect can indicate competition between the couple. This can be healthy if the partners challenge each other, but it can quickly turn aggressive and combative if the levels of competition rise.

The timing in this relationship is always off. One person wants more than the other wants to give. This may be a constant dynamic, or this may switch back and forth between the partners. 

They also have different drives or motivators. One person might want to do active things, find new hobbies, go out, etc. while the other is content to stay home. They each feel like they must sacrifice a core part of themselves to stay in the relationship.

If you have this Sun square Mars synastry aspect in your relationship, it can feel like you’re just never on the same page. You always have to explain your actions to your partner because you just don’t understand each other. This can be quite a draining aspect in a long-term relationship.

However, it is possible for this relationship to work. Don’t forget: the Sun square Mars synastry aspect is full of passion. It isn’t a relationship that will die out easily, so there can be enough energy to accomplish just about anything.

Communication is essential in this relationship. You probably react to each other very defensively. You must learn how to express yourselves and your needs without attacking the other person. There is always a way to compromise without either person giving up their values or dreams, but you simply haven’t learned how to do this yet.

Midheaven In Aquarius, IC In Leo

Midheaven In Aquarius, IC In Leo

The Midheaven (MC) and the Imum coeli (IC) are two opposite points in astrology that are calculated based on your place and time of birth. Today I’ll be discussing the Midheaven in Aquarius and the IC in Leo.

Keep in mind that the Midheaven and IC are always opposite signs, so you can’t have one without the other!

What Is the Midheaven versus the IC?

The IC is generally traits from childhood that you learned to conceal. It describes your childhood in some way and indicates the role you were given by your family.

Typically, the IC describes the more painful qualities of your childhood and upbringing. These are qualities that hold you back, but it also shows a core part of yourself that you feel you must hide

The IC is often unconscious. You hide these pieces of yourself because you were taught, in some way, that they aren’t acceptable values to show to society. Some people may reveal these inner pieces in private, while others shun their core self altogether.

On the opposite axis, the Midheaven, or MC, is your outer, more public persona. The Midheaven is the “you” that you actively want to show.

Typically, the Midheaven shows qualities that you develop is a direct result of childhood conditioning. Whether your parents meant to teach you these qualities or not, they are things that you learned in order to survive.

The Midheaven is also what you want to achieve in the world and who you desire to be based on what you feel is important in life.

Ultimately, the Midheaven is your calling in the world. It’s what you feel compelled to accomplish in this lifetime, especially in terms of work or career. When you feel that you have truly completed your Midheaven, you are more likely to feel ultimate fulfillment. 

Both the IC and the Midheaven are integral parts of your personality. Neither are inherently good or bad. You will never “get rid” of either, but learning about these qualities can help you heal your shadow self and put your best foot forward in the world.

IC In Leo:

With your IC in Leo, you probably didn’t get enough one-on-one attention as a child. You probably had compete with either your siblings or parents to get noticed.

These IC in Leo qualities forced you to fight for attention or learn to be independent without care from others. You probably started to hide your feelings and learned not to ask for help. You figured out how to do things for yourself and deal with not being noticed.

Often with IC in Leo, you had another family member who always seemed to steal the spotlight. Look to the aspects to determine exactly who this was and how this manifested.

Sometimes with IC in Leo, you may have had a family who looked down on emotional outbursts. You were taught that excessive displays of emotions were bad; you may have even been strongly punished when you got too upset.

However, you were probably fun-loving as a child, too. You figured out how to create your own fun without getting in trouble or being too emotional.

Inside, you have this IC in Leo inner child who truly loves to have fun. This child may also want that attention that they didn’t receive in childhood, but you have pushed that deep down and learned to ignore this need.

You wanted more affection and warmth as a child. You had to share the limelight and didn’t get the amount of attention that you needed.

Your inner child is larger than life and quite energetic and playful, when they are allowed to come out. However, you may also have an inner part of yourself that can be a bit egotistical, simply because you want to be noticed.

When your inner child does come out, you might find yourself bragging or showing off your skills. You can come off as a little desperate because you want recognition, but this all comes from a real need that you have. No matter how much you hide your desire to be noticed, it doesn’t actually go away.

Additionally, your parents may have shown off a bit in childhood. Maybe they cared a lot about status in society or were a bit “braggy” themselves. You subconsciously learned how to brag by watching them, but you also reject this part of yourself. It’s a bit of a push-pull feeling.

With IC in Leo, you’re probably very loving. You have a large heart and are quite giving in your private life. Anyone who is lucky enough to glimpse this secret self will discover a generous, caring individual.

Ultimately, these inner feelings develop because you wanted more openness or affection but didn’t get it from your parents. You wanted more warmth. You had to share the “limelight” and didn’t get enough attention compared to your siblings or other people. You learned to ignore your feelings and might even now think that emotions are bad.

Midheaven In Aquarius:

With your IC in Leo, you learned to be independent and to pretend that you didn’t need attention. You began to focus on logic instead of your emotions as a way to cope.

Now with your Midheaven in Aquarius, you may come off as cool, aloof, or detached. Inside, you actually feel too emotional and needy, so you must shut off your emotions around others.

Sometimes, your IC in Leo emotions may bubble up. It’s easy for you to become playful or a bit egotistical when your Leo starts showing, but you’re careful to quickly shut that off. Most of the time, what others see is your Midheaven in Aquarius.

Your conversations with people are factual and logical. You can be a bit sharp or cold when you don’t believe something that others are saying, but this is because you never stray from the path of reason. Logic is what feels safe to you, but you also developed these skills when people discredited you for being too emotional.

Your inner child, or IC in Leo, wanted attention that they didn’t receive, but when you work with facts instead of feelings, you no longer feel so sad. Logic is what keeps you grounded and whole. It’s what saved you as a child.

With your Midheaven in Aquarius, you want to do something different in the world. You wish to create or contribute something unique instead of getting bogged down in the same type of work that everyone else does.

You want to be remembered for adding something to humanity, something that will take our people and culture to the next level. It’s important to you that you love your work and feel like you’re actively doing something. You probably don’t do well with busy work, unless it will advance your career in some way.

Ultimately with Midheaven in Aquarius, you are intellectual rather than emotional. You hit people with the facts and stay calm, cool, and collected. You have a rich inner world filled with playfulness, but you only share this side of yourself with those you trust completely.

The goal with Midheaven in Aquarius is to combine your love of logic, which can be quite helpful, with your need for attention. Learn to give yourself the attention that you didn’t receive. Work through your childhood in a logical fashion instead of ignoring it and you will find that your career jumps by leaps and bounds.

Venus-Sun Aspects In Synastry

Venus-Sun Aspects In Synastry

Venus-Sun aspects in synastry are super popular for a reason: they’re generally indicative of attraction, love, and long-term relationships.

If you have a beneficial Venus-Sun conjunction with your partner, you truly admire each other. You agree on values, likes, hobbies, and everything else that makes life fun!

Keep in mind when looking at aspects that they can either be helpful/positive or difficult. There is a whole range of aspects.

Positive aspects are fun and easy because the energy just flows naturally, but they don’t inspire much change. Difficult aspects are actually what force us to grow through conflict.

Any difficult aspect can be worked through and dealt with if both partners are willing. This is actually when we learn the most. Astrology just gives us the guidelines, but we still have free will and can make our own choices!

Sun Conjunct Venus Synastry:

With the Sun conjunct Venus synastry aspect, both partners truly admire each other. The relationship can feel kind of romantic or grand; they are attracted to each other’s core values and characteristics.

The Sun person with this Sun conjunct Venus synastry aspect probably admires the Venus person’s looks or mannerisms. The Venus person admires the Sun person’s core personality, charisma, and outer self.

This Sun conjunct Venus synastry aspect isn’t necessarily super sexual. Instead, these partners just truly admire each others’ values and souls at a deep level. If you have this aspect with your partner, you probably notice and enjoy the little things about their personality.

It’s really easy to just feel content in a relationship with the Sun conjunct Venus synastry aspect. Keep in mind that the relationship will especially take on qualities of the sign that this conjunction is in.

This aspect is a strong indicator of physical attraction between both parties. The Venus person might especially find the Sun person beautiful, which can give that individual a nice ego boost. However, the Sun person can start to feel suffocated, while the Venus person might feel like their emotional needs aren’t being met.

Any conjunction can have both positive and difficult qualities. This Sun conjunct Venus synastry aspect is no different. This is a really exquisite union with a lot of beautiful feelings for both parties, but it can also bring up insecurity or identity struggles.

Ultimately, admiration (in some manner, dependent on the sign) is a core part of this relationship. The goal is for both people to maintain their individuality while finding qualities they adore in the other person.

Sun Trine Venus Synastry:

With this Sun trine Venus synastry aspect, there is an easy flow of energy in the relationship. Both people are probably attracted to each other and get along quite well.

Sometimes, the Sun person might think the Venus person is especially beautiful or attractive, while the Venus person feels that the Sun person is charming, charismatic, and warm.

The Sun trine Venus synastry aspect means that both individuals admire and value each other’s qualities. They probably don’t have the exact same qualities, but they find complementary values in each other.

This is a good aspect for both platonic and romantic relationships. Although the Sun trine Venus synastry aspect traditionally shows up in charts of romantic partners, this energy can make for a lovely friendship based on shared values, too.

Both people admire each other’s charisma and grace, but they probably also support each other’s dreams and goals. This Sun trine Venus synastry aspect generally means that the relationship is equal and balanced, unless other aspects offset this harmony.

Sometimes, the Sun person can assume the leadership role in the relationship. This will be especially evident in the areas of the sign and house placements, but when this happens, Venus doesn’t feel overshadowed. Instead, these partners exist harmoniously, working in slightly different arenas.

They typically have a lot of common ground concerning hobbies or preferences, yet they aren’t exactly the same. People with the Sun trine Venus synastry aspect simply enjoy similar things. They like being in each other’s company because it’s always harmonious and easy.

However, the Sun trine Venus synastry aspect can actually be too easy. This is such a harmonious aspect that more difficult aspects in the synastry chart may feel worse than they truly are.

If you have this aspect, remember that it’s an extremely easy aspect. It’s okay and is completely normal if others feel much more difficult.

Sun Sextile Venus Synastry:

The Sun sextile Venus synastry aspect is another easy aspect, but it may not come as naturally. This aspect means that both partners see value in each other, but they may have to work a bit to truly understand what they each find significant.

With the Sun sextile Venus synastry aspect, there is an opportunity to build mutual admiration. Some of this will be natural as soon as this couple meets because they both have the desire to please each other.

However, they must work to keep things mutual and not descend into power struggles. The Sun sextile Venus synastry aspect can indicate that things may get off balance, if the partners allow it. 

This aspect means that both people have similar values and methods of self expression. The work is to focus on discovering new things about the other person and cultivating feelings of adoration that are both given and received.

The Venus person wants to be noticed and cared for while the Sun person might need an ego boost sometimes. With the Sun sextile Venus synastry aspect, work to provide your partner with what they need and you can cultivate a beautiful relationship based on mutual respect.

Sun Opposition Venus Synastry:

The Sun opposition Venus synastry aspect is always interesting because it has almost equal positive and negative elements.

In the beginning, the Sun opposition Venus synastry aspect can create a “chase” in some way. Typically, both partners enjoy this, because they see the promise of something alluring at the end of the tunnel.

Alternatively, this can mean that there is an illicit or even scandalous nature to the relationship. I find that there’s generally something very exciting about the way that this relationship starts off; it may even give you a bit of a rush.

The Sun opposition Venus synastry aspect is found in a lot of long-term relationships. It isn’t necessarily bad but, over time, the Venus person can start to feel less-than-appreciated for what they do for the Sun individual.

Meanwhile, the Sun person can get annoyed with the Venus person. The Venus individual might appear stuck on superficial things rather than what the Sun person deems important.

This Sun opposition Venus synastry aspect may create a push-pull feeling. It’s easy to alternate between admiring each other and feeling used by each other.

Sometimes, there are incompatibility in values. The partners may have a different outlook on life altogether. It’s very hard to keep this relationship feeling balanced.

There is almost always a “push-pull” element to the Sun opposition Venus synastry aspect. You may start to feel like whenever you seek your partner out, they withdraw, and vice versa.

If you have the Sun opposition Venus synastry aspect, be careful that you don’t start keeping score of every little thing. Work towards building mutual admiration rather than pitting yourself against your partner.

Sun Square Venus Synastry:

With this Sun square Venus synastry aspect, there is a lot of mutual admiration at first and plenty of natural attraction. Squares provide a lot of energy, so there may actually be more initial attraction in this relationship than in those with the sextile or trine.

Over time, the Venus person might start to feel unappreciated. It’s very common for them to work hard to please the Sun person, only for the Sun person not to notice.

The Venus person can start playing games, manipulating then appeasing, or acting passive-aggressively towards the Sun individual. These manipulations don’t typically work well, but the Venus person doesn’t know what else to do. This can be a painful relationship for both people.

Over time with the Sun square Venus synastry aspect, the Venus person can come to resent the Sun person, but they never air their grievances. They let their resentment build up inside them.

This is usually because the Venus person tries so hard to please the Sun person but gets little to nothing returned. This placement often means that the Venus person either is or feels used. They can also feel that the Sun person is too egotistical or selfish.

The Sun square Venus synastry aspect can mean that a lack of care and consideration for each other develops. This can become quite extreme; both partners might become extremely selfish in the relationship.

The partners lose the admiration that a relationship needs. They just don’t see anything to like about each other. The Sun square Venus synastry aspect can make the relationship seem like it holds a lot of potential in the beginning, only to fall short by miles.

Ultimately, this is the relationship where love turns to hate. An obligation may develop to keep the “tallies” equal, with both partners feeling forced to give to the other in order to receive. Sometimes this comes in the manner of money, while other times this refers to affection or time.

The Sun square Venus synastry aspect means that there may be significant differences in tastes or view of love. This aspect can be resolved, but it requires a lot of maturity and commitment on the parts of both partners.

Midheaven in Libra, IC in Aries

Midheaven in Libra, IC in Aries

The Midheaven (MC) and the Imum coeli (IC) are two opposite points in astrology that are calculated based on your place and time of birth. Today I’ll be discussing the Midheaven in Libra and the IC in Aries.

Keep in mind that the Midheaven and IC are always opposite signs, so you can’t have one without the other!

What Is the Midheaven versus the IC?

The IC is generally traits from childhood that you learned to conceal. It describes your childhood in some way and indicates the role you were given by your family.

Typically, the IC describes the more difficult qualities of your childhood. It is the negative traits that hold you back, but it also shows a core part of you that you hide deep down.

The IC is often subconscious. You shield these qualities because you were taught, in some way, that they aren’t acceptable things to show to society. You will only reveal these inner pieces of yourself in private.

On the opposite axis, the Midheaven, or MC, is your outer public persona. The Midheaven is your image that you actively want to show to the world.

Typically, the Midheaven qualities that you develop are a direct result of childhood conditioning. 

The Midheaven is also what you want to achieve in the world and who you desire to be based on the qualities you feel are important in life.

Ultimately, the Midheaven is your calling in the world. It’s what you feel compelled to accomplish in this lifetime, especially in terms of career or work.

When you feel that you have truly completed your Midheaven, you are more likely to experience true fulfillment.

Although most people think that the Midheaven represents your job, it actually represents that qualities that you’re likely to show at your job or in any “public” situation around others.

Learning about your IC and Midheaven can be useful because you can emphasize these qualities that you will now realize you possess. Some of them may be subconscious at first, but your Midheaven shows what skills you naturally developed due to your childhood that you can utilize.

Both the IC and the Midheaven are integral parts of your personality. Neither are inherently good or bad and both will most likely continue to exist as a dichotomy.

IC In Aries:

With your IC in Aries, as a child you were either left to fend for yourself, or you were forced into situations where you had to strive for something without assistance. Either way, you felt a bit abandoned.

Your parents somehow made you feel like you had to do something or act a certain way to survive. Your home life was probably pretty intense as a child.

Some people with IC in Aries were quite literally abandoned as children or lost their parents rather abruptly.

If you weren’t left to fend for yourself as a kid, then your parents probably made you feel that you had to stand out in order to be seen by them.

There may have been specific things you had to do to get love. You could not get attention without work.

You acquired survival skills at a young age with IC in Aries. You probably learned to move fast and react quickly in order to survive.

IC in Aries also means that you probably didn’t have a lot of nurture as a child. You had to take charge of your own life and make it on your own. You learned quite quickly how to be independent.

Sometimes, IC in Aries can also mean that anger was somehow involved in your childhood. You learned to suppress your own anger and to be careful of it. Even now, you push your anger down where no one can see it.

Midheaven In Libra:

When you were a child with your IC in Aries, you learned that if you didn’t play by the rules you wouldn’t get what you needed. It was simply a matter of survival.

You also intuited that you had to make other people happy in order to succeed.

Now, with your Midheaven in Libra, you’re probably very good at working with other people in a cool, calm, and collected manner. You learned how to cling to social norms as a survival tactic.

With your Midheaven in Libra, you figured out how to slow down and be patient. You can now analyze situations without showing a single emotion and use your charm to get what you want.

You also learned that you needed to plan instead of act. You couldn’t allow your emotions to run you, but you had to instead use logic and tactical knowledge.

Inside, you might still feel like an Aries. You may experience strong, uncontrollable emotions, or a sense of anger or rage. However, you have probably mastered the art of appearing unbothered on the outside.

You probably care quite a bit about your reputation with Midheaven in Libra. People see you as elegant, strong, rational, and logical.

Others probably enjoy speaking with you and feel confident that you will be able to work out a deal that’s good for both parties. You’re a great mediator and always find some sort of middle ground.

You’re a diplomatic leader, but you will also stand up for what you believe in, when necessary. 

With your Midheaven in Libra, you prosper in careers that deal with arts or justice. However, you’re good at any type of mediation or public work because you almost always fulfill the expectations of the public.

As a child, you learned that you needed to appeal to others in order to get what you want. You’re probably very good at figuring out how to get someone on your side. This may seem like fun and games to others, but it was how you survived.

You’re very good with words and phrases. You’re also skilled at speaking in a way where you can appeal to others without getting yourself into a pickle. 

At the end of the day, you want to be remembered as someone diplomatic, kind, and just with Midheaven in Libra. This is what will give you fulfillment.

You care quite a bit about how others perceive you, both because you need others to like you to survive and because you don’t want others to feel as you did in childhood.

You want to find a way to make everyone happy in any situation and be a bridge between different cultures or modes of thought.

Those who are close to you probably feel your rather aggressive IC in Aries nature brewing under the surface, but they understand that you must use your social graces in order to get what you need.

You’re a natural leader underneath because of your IC in Aries, but you must be careful that you don’t let too much of your Aries qualities show openly. The public is more receptive to you when you’re graceful and charming.

With your Midheaven in Libra, you can range from being slightly charming and a little seductive to being socially manipulative or head strong. There are many ways that Midheaven in Libra can manifest itself.

IC in Aries/Midheaven in Libra can be a difficult placement because you always need to be careful in social situations. You may feel that you’re constantly balancing your IC in Aries with your Midheaven in Libra and that you swing back and forth between the two.

However, these are simply the cards you have been dealt. You also gain a lot of skills with this placement.

One of your best qualities is the value that you put on equality. You also see worth in not abandoning others. You want friends and family to feel safe in a way that you didn’t as a child.

In some situations, you will always aim to fit in with your Midheaven in Libra. You feel much safer when others like you. As a child, you were rejected and learned that this was dangerous.

You’re a bit of a self starter when you’re working. You take action and know what you want, but you also go about this diplomatically.

At your best, you want to smooth the rough edges of the world and make it more fair and equitable for others.

Venus In The Houses

Venus In The Houses

Even though we all research our Venus signs first, Venus in the houses is actually pretty important.

Your Venus sign will show the qualities that you exhibit, but the house that your Venus is in will indicate where you tend to show these qualities.

For example, with Venus in the 10th house, you tend to show your most Venusian qualities at work or in public, while Venus in the 4th house means that you show these qualities most at home or in private.

How To Read Venus In The Houses

You should start with your Venus sign when you’re looking into your placement. However, the house will be important, too.

You Venus sign shows the qualities that you exhibit, but the house shows where these qualities will appear most often.

Of course, because of aspects, you will have bits of your Venus sign in many areas of your life, but it will be strongest in the house that Venus is actually in.

Venus In The 1st House

With Venus in the 1st house, you are simply magnetic. Others like you and are drawn to you. 

The Venus “love” qualities are front and center with your personality. You’re simply likable, maybe even for an indistinct reason.

You’re probably very social with Venus in the 1st house. You are charming and easily attract others. There may even be a slightly romantic element to your personality.

It’s easy for others to fall in love with you because of your attractive vibes. They might even fall in love with the idea of you before getting to know you. Your personality inspires trust.

You have the potential to enjoy the materialistic side of life and overindulge a bit. With Venus in the 1st house, you can be opulent in some ways, typically depending on your Venus sign.

Most individuals with Venus in the 1st house need to learn that all good things happen in time. They also need some self-control; they tend to want what they want when they want it.

With Venus in the 1st house, you can also have a strong need to be liked by others. You tend to give up your personal power during times of stress. You will want to focus on self-love in order to reclaim your power and make your own decisions.

At worst, you can actually start to become narcissistic because of your need to be liked by others. However, this will need other elements and placements in the chart to support narcissism. 

You always want to avoid trouble. When challenged you may “play dumb” or react passive-aggressively. Venus in the 1st house always avoids outright confrontation.

In love, you seek all things classically romantic, including beauty, sensitivity, and softness. You’re probably aesthetically pleasing in some way and you also like to be surrounded by nice-looking people and things.

Venus In The 2nd House

If you have Venus in the 2nd house, you value tangible expressions of love. Actions mean much more to you than words.

You may be slow to like someone or something. Your feelings will grow gradually over time, whether these are emotions towards a partner or feelings about an item or theme.

In a relationship, you want to feel secure with Venus in the 2nd house. You need to see that someone is a safe harbor, but only time will tell this. When you commit yourself, you will be loyal until the end. This isn’t a very flightly placement for Venus.

You’re probably very honest with your partners. You’re reliable when it comes to love; no one has to guess what you’re thinking.

However, it can be very hard for you to let go of someone. Once you let a person in, you’re all in. You’re a true old-time romantic and want a traditional relationship in some sense.

You probably have a natural, sensual beauty. You may be a bit earthly or simply physically appealing in general.

Venus in the 2nd house typically means that you’re attracted to all things sensual. You really enjoy physical sensations and you’re probably attracted to animal magnetism rather than anything too manufactured.

I do find that some people with Venus in the 2nd house find materialistic things to be beautiful. Some of these folks feel that beauty has a price tag (and anyone’s beauty can be enhanced with makeup, Botox, etc.), while others are more interested in natural, sensual beauty, or things that are made from quality.

Venus In The 3rd House

Venus in the 3rd house is all about verbal expression. With this placement, you’re probably attractive because of your words, charisma, or methods of communication.

In a relationship, you value mental simulation with Venus in the 3rd house. You probably can’t be with someone who won’t chat with you and keep you interested. This is especially true for men with the Venus in the 3rd house placement.

You also value creativity. You’re probably very expressive or inventive in some way. Many folks with Venus in the 3rd house are writers, dancers, singers, artists, etc.

It is how you express yourself that makes you attractive. Other people notice your light because of your communication skills, however those may manifest. The sign that Venus is in will give more information about how you communicate and express yourself.

However, you might also stretch the truth with Venus in the 3rd house. This isn’t always the case, but you should be careful to stick to the truth with this placement.

You’re very playful, but love can feel almost like a game. You love the game of love yet others may get hurt by this. You’re seductive with your wit, spark, and playfulness.

Make sure that you make your intentions known to your potential partners so they don’t get misled.

Venus In The 4th House

If you have Venus in 4th house, your parents marriage probably affects your own skills in love. A lot of the way that you flirt and even act in relationships is learned from your parents’ relationship.

You probably show your love by caring for others in little ways. You may try to show that you understand your partner or friends and family emotionally.

This Venus in the 4th house placement means that, above all, you value feeling cozy and safe. You love having a beautiful home that’s yours.

In fact, you may care quite a bit about the aesthetic of your home. You desire quality items and have an “eye” for the way you want things to look.

Although most people with Venus in the 4th house define “pretty” different, you certainly want your home to look beautiful in the way that you define the word. You want quality items that feel like home to you.

Sometimes, Venus in the 4th house can mean that that you have some karma related to self-nurture. This can be applied in many ways, but you probably struggle in figuring out how to nurture yourself in a way that feels right.

Learning how to create a safe space that you love will make you feel ultra-fulfilled with Venus in the 4th house.

You do the thoughtful little things instead of the grand gestures. Venus in the 6th house is all about the day-to-day.

In fact, you may pursue relationships that serve a practical purpose in your life rather than those that make you feel romantic or attractive. You may also have trouble pursuing relationships for the purpose of soul growth.

With Venus in the 6th house, you may love your work or routines. It can be easy for you to focus on your schedule instead of your partner. If you can find a healthy balance then this won’t be an issue, but some people’s partners feel that the person with Venus in the 6th house is too rigid.

Remember to focus on what makes you feel happy at a soul level, not just on your routine or daily goals. Try to be a little spontaneous with your partner and let go of your practical reasons why you can’t change anything, whether it’s in your relationship or your own life.

Some people with this placement can actually feel that their friendships are more important to them than their partner.

With Venus in the 11th house, it may be hard for you to separate friendship and love. You probably spend a lot of time with the person you’re dating, even if the relationship is only casual.

However, you will have trouble falling in love if your partner doesn’t share your interests. Alternatively, you may have difficulties feeling attraction if your partner doesn’t have some sort of social status.

Sometimes, people with Venus in the 11th house are interested in more than one person at a time. This is not always the case; other aspects in the chart will need to support this.

You’re probably friendly but also flirty. Venus in the 11th house means that you may flirt with your friends and have trouble setting boundaries. You may not even realize you’re flirting and probably get confused when their friends develop feelings.

Venus In The 12th House

With Venus in the 12th house, you get hurt in love quite easily. You often feel used by partners.

Some of this is because you aren’t very good at defining boundaries in love. It can be tough for you to figure out where you end and your partner begins.

You want a relationship but you may have trouble saying what you actually need from a relationship. Venus in the 12th house makes it hard for you to figure out what’s real and what you need.

You may have a secret element in many of your relationships with Venus in the 12th house. If you don’t actually have secret relationships, then you may need to hide your partner from your parents, your friends, etc., or hide things about your life from your partner.

There is a tendency for you to get involved in relationships that aren’t totally equal.

With Venus in the 12th house, you can also get caught up in your fantasies of the past. Sometimes, you create an idea of a partner in your head and fail to see what’s right in front of you. It can be difficult for you to confront the truth when things change.

You probably fear being alone, at least during your early years, and you may have the tendency to get into a relationship just for the sake of having someone. 

Love and sacrifice go hand-in-hand for you. With Venus in the 12th house, your partner may become your world quite quickly. You’re serious about romance but you can also start living for your partner shortly after meeting them.

In fact, you may feel like you always have to give something up to be with your partner. It’s hard for you to find love without sacrifice.

With Venus in the 12th house, it’s important for you to develop a sense of self worth and boundaries. Venus is all about love, but it can also represent self love.

You have the opportunity to discover self love through Venus in the 12th house instead of looking for it from others. Work on Picean, 12th house qualities such as self-care, shadow work, and meditation to build your confidence and heal your inner child.

Venus in Capricorn In The Natal Chart

Venus in Capricorn In The Natal Chart

Venus in Capricorn can be a bit removed and serious, but there are many wonderful elements to this placement.

Typically, Venus in Capricorn folks are extremely practical. They tend to do well in the real world, as long as they don’t become too business-like in relationships.

As you read these descriptions of the Venus in Capricorn placement, keep in mind that the house your Venus is in makes a difference, too.

Venus In Capricorn Characteristics

Venus rules so many areas that the characteristics of your Venus sign can have a large impact on your entire life. Here are the main ways that Venus in Capricorn shows up.

Money and Style:

With Venus in Capricorn, you prefer classic styles over anything trendy. Older is best!

While Venus in Capricorn people can be materialistic or enjoy symbols of status sometimes, others care more about quality of items.

The typical Venus in Capricorn is known for being extremely materialistic, but I don’t feel that this is always the case. I find that a Venus in Capricorn individual is either materialistic or practical.

Most folks with Venus in Capricorn are really practical with possessions and money. It’s always a safe bet to let these people handle your finances. They typically don’t spend beyond their means unless other elements of the chart support this.

Pleasure:

With Venus in Capricorn, you aren’t a party animal by any means. You may be less “fun-loving” than others.

Much of this is because you’re distrustful of others, so it’s hard for you to open up and let loose.

Another element of your serious personality is your practicality. Venus in Capricorn is all about being down-to-earth and efficient; in fact, you may even find more pleasure in hard work than in a typical party atmosphere.

You have long term goals and are grounded and realistic. Most Venus in Capricorn folks steer clear of anything flashy.

However, with Venus in Capricorn, you do have an inner child “locked up.” When you’re super comfortable around someone, your inner child comes out and you can be quite silly and playful. This happens rarely and may be surprising to people when they first see it.

Values:

With Venus in Capricorn, you value structure and order. You believe in setting rules and then following them. You will especially value rules in the house that your Venus sits in.

Depending on the house that Venus is in, you might also value hard work. For example, with Venus in the 10th house, you value hard work and status, but with Venus in the 7th house, you value putting the work into relationships.

You probably place significance on things that sustain over time with Venus in Capricorn. You won’t go for the quick fix but instead value long term investments when it comes to money, people, your job, and more.

With materialistic items, you prefer older, quality pieces. You don’t like super trendy or new things but would rather have a historical item.

Venus in Capricorn usually means that you were born into a family with parents who adhered to a certain set of conduct rules. You were probably forced to behave a certain way, especially socially.

If you deviated as a child, you were made to feel guilty or bad. Vulnerabilities and affection were probably not priorities. Instead, you needed to follow the rules and maintain appearances.

Some families focused more on appearances while others were simply forced to follow a strict set of rules.

Now, you may still operate within this value system, however it will be important to develop your own set of values as you grow.

You won’t necessarily need to show these values to others, but it is still integral that you figure out what matters to you.

Attraction:

With Venus in Capricorn, you have a very practical view of attraction. You don’t get caught up in the happy “first feelings” of love but instead see the reality of the other person.

You notice red flags quite easily when someone is flashy but has no real substance. You’re attracted to the sterner stuff that’s underneath the pomp and circumstance.

Once you’re getting to know someone, you probably value the traditional roles of courtship. You’re like to go slow and wait before jumping into a relationship.

Sometimes, you might be attracted to someone with a respectable position, a good reputation, wealth, or fame. Other folks with Venus in Capricorn are captivated by potential partners with a sense of practicality and a good work ethic.

When you’re first getting to know someone, you keep a lot of your thoughts and emotions private. You may come off as cold or removed, but you tend to attract folks who enjoy this distance or see it as flirtatious.

Others might think that you’re unfeeling because you won’t give your heart away to someone who doesn’t measure up to your criteria. You move slow and are discerning.

With Venus in Capricorn, you’re more of a doer than a talker. When you’re attracted to someone, they will know from your actions.

You have a quiet confidence or security that attracts others. You can be a bit awkward initially, but you have a cool confidence underneath. Others are attracted to this esteem in you.

Relationships/Sex:

In a relationship, a Venus in Capricorn will be an extremely devoted mate. These folks aren’t always warm and fluffy but they will be there when you need them.

With Venus in Capricorn, you probably see relationships as a long-term investment, so you’re strict with your vetting process when you first meet someone.

Although you know that no one is perfect, you can be quite picky and will weigh the pros and cons of a potential partner carefully.

You tend to find confident partners with Venus in Capricorn. You want someone who can handle their own life; you don’t want to “save” a tragic victim.

If you do find yourself in a relationship with someone who is too needy, you will probably distance yourself slowly and grow more detached over time.

However, you certainly have a provider instinct with Venus in Capricorn. You’re steadfast and true. You find safety in practicality and all that is known.

Your reliability as a partner is attractive to others, but when you’re actually in a relationship, it takes you a long time to open up your heart.

With Venus in Capricorn, you show your emotions and your love through actions, not words. You aren’t the most flowery romantic speaker, but you will demonstrate your love over time in a relationship.

In bed, you can actually be a bit casual if you’re single and may have many partners over time, but once you commit to someone you’re loyal. You may be quite diligent about pleasing your partner and learning what they enjoy.

Venus In Capricorn: Best & Worst Qualities

People with Venus in Capricorn are hard-working and practical, but they can also be cold or aloof. They adhere to a strict set of rules; this can be both a positive and a negative.

When it comes to placements in the birth chart, there are no positives without an equally difficult quality. Sometimes, the positives are the negatives. 

Keep in mind that no individual will have all of these qualities because it will depend on your specific placement (aspects, house, etc.), but many of these qualities are likely to show up in someone’s personality with Venus in Capricorn.

Venus In Capricorn: Man vs. Woman

This part can get a little confusing, so bear with me as I explain it. Basically, Venus shows itself differently for someone with more masculine energy than it does for someone with more feminine energy.

It’s up to you to choose with energy you identify with more. If you’re unsure, I recommend reading the description of each energy for Venus in Capricorn below and choosing what resonates with you.

Generally, in a woman or someone with feminine energy, Venus will show how the person acts and what vibes they gives off towards others.

When this person is flirting, they will assume many of the qualities of Venus in Capricorn. These Capricorn qualities will show up directly in the personality.

In a man or someone with masculine energy, Venus will show what kind of qualities they are attracted to. How this person will act depends on their Mars sign, but their Venus sign dictates what types of energy they are drawn towards in a partner.

As we evolve and change and the gender lines blur, these distinctions become less absolute. For example, I find that most women will show a lot of the qualities of their Venus when they’re flirting, but a few of their Mars qualities will bleed through also.

It’s important to learn about both Venus and Mars. Each person has a unique combination of both qualities, although this combination may be swayed slightly depending on the person’s gender.

Lastly, a man who is ultra-comfortable with his sexuality will display many more of his Venus qualities, while a man who struggles with his sexuality probably won’t “own” these Venusian qualities, so he will instead look for them in a female partner.

In bed, he will probably display more of his Mars signs, but he will also have a touch of Venus. With Venus in Capricorn, this men will be practical and focused in bed. He won’t get caught up in romantic fantasies but will instead focus on the actual technique.

He may come across as unemotional, but his actions speak louder than his words. The Venus in Capricorn man wants actions instead of words from his partner, too.

The Venus In Capricorn Man:

The Venus in Capricorn man is interested in serious and responsible women.

He won’t be attracted to anyone too emotional or talkative. He will also steer clear of superficiality or unpredictability. He likes women who are down to earth and practical.

The Venus in Capricorn man wants a pragmatic woman who focuses on work first. Sometimes, he will want someone modest and old-fashioned, while other times he will prefer someone with status or business-sense. This will depend on the house and aspects.

When the Venus in Capricorn man first meets someone, he is attracted to a strong inner energy and quiet confidence. 

Because he desires someone so practical, he is willing to be quite patient in a relationship. The Venus in Capricorn man will stick it out through the hard times; he doesn’t run away easily.

He’s likely to stay loyal in a relationship, even if the relationship turns sour. He may be a bit slow to give his heart away, but once he does, he’s all in.

Because he takes so long to commit, he can also be really hurt in a relationship if it falls apart. 

The Venus In Capricorn Woman:

The Venus in Capricorn woman finds safety and comfort in what she knows. She doesn’t adapt to change quickly.

She comes across as cool, aloof, detached, or maybe even a bit snobby when she’s flirting. She isn’t fun and outgoing. Instead, her partners will be attracted to her emotionally removed vibe.

The Venus in Capricorn woman is very picky. She may get into relationships later in life or she might be unsatisfied with her earlier relationships. She hates immaturity more than anything.

In relationships, the Venus in Capricorn woman goes slow and steady. She is careful not to get hurt.

Once her defenses are down, the Venus in Capricorn woman will be warm and tender, but this may take quite a while.

She needs a lot of independence in a partnership. The Venus in Capricorn woman probably won’t be interested in partying and going out, but she does need room to have her own interests and space.

The Venus in Capricorn woman is very practical. Her idea of fun probably involves work in some way. She may have trouble keeping love interests around because of how practical and/or ambitious she is, unless her partners feel the same way.

She can be a bit old-fashioned, classy, or even a little prudish. Alternatively, sometimes the Venus in Capricorn woman is snobby and materialistic. This is less likely than the first scenario, but it is possible depending on the house and aspects to Venus.

If the Venus in Capricorn woman gets dumped, she will never show how she really feels. She is very good at putting on a blank face and hiding her hurt, but it can take her a long time to get over heartbreak internally.

In bed, the Venus in Capricorn woman can be a bit reserved until she feels totally comfortable. Some Venus in Capricorn women are prudes while others are less closed in actions, but are still a bit reserved, quiet, or even cold.

How To Master The Venus In Capricorn Energy

With Venus in Capricorn, you will need to work on integrating your emotions with your rules.

Learn that it’s OK to break the social conduct code once in a while. A good place to start is by examining your childhood rules and figuring out which ones you personally like and which you want to throw out.

Develop your own internal set of rules that is created by you, not others. Make sure your own set of rules works for you.

The work for any Venus in Capricorn person will be a lot of small steps. These folks need to figure out what they want because they’re so used to being told what to do.

The goal for the Venus in Capricorn person is to let the inner child out.

You might actually come off as a bit aloof or removed, but you’re really just protecting yourself.

Most people with Venus in Cancer are attracted to potential partners who have a bit of softness in them, too. With Venus in Cancer, you can sense this gentle energy in others before they have even done anything to show it.

You’re afraid of getting hurt but you also want to feel close to your partner. You need to get to know someone and develop trust yet you also fall in love quickly.

In a relationship, you’re very tuned into the unspoken thoughts of your partner. You need security, nurture, and comfort, but you give this all back in spades.

You show your love by caring and noticing the feelings of your partner. However, you will sometimes be the only one doing this. If you don’t feel that the emotional attention is being returned then you can start to become resentful, although you probably won’t tell your partner what’s bothering you.

When you feel rejected, you retreat into your crab shell. With Venus in Cancer, it can take you a while to come back out.

You can also be easily offended or feel unloved with Venus in Cancer. Your partners might feel that they need to walk on eggshells.

If you still feel resentment towards your partner from anything they have done, you probably won’t say anything. Your partner will need to sense what’s going on.

You probably aren’t super straightforward with your feelings; your partners might have to guess what’s going on if they feel that something is off. However, you are equally as observant towards your partner’s emotions.

With friends, you’re loyal and like to stay in touch. You’re very good at making your friends feel nurtured and cared for, but you want them to reciprocate this affection.

With Venus in Cancer, you hold on to hurt feelings and might even act passive-aggressive or revengeful towards someone who has hurt you.

If there is trauma, a Venus in Cancer individual might have a lot of casual flings because they are looking for love in the wrong places. Otherwise, they like to be in relationships.

In relationships, you will need lots of snuggling and sentimental talks with Venus in Cancer. More emotion is always better.

The Venus in Cancer woman can be a bit needy in relationships. She might have trouble establishing boundaries. It’s easy for her to get into codependent relationships because she might attract needy types, too.

If the Venus in Cancer woman does get into a codependent relationship, then she may come to resent her partner over time.

In bed, the Cancer in Venus woman is caring, loving, and sentimental. Love goes along with physical expression; she needs both to feel satisfied.

How To Master The Venus In Cancer Energy

It’s good to introduce a dose of logic into your emotional world. Learn to look at things using reason without shutting your emotions down.

It’s also helpful for you to find a group who cares for you as you care for them. With Venus in Cancer, you offer a lot of devotion and loyalty, but you should be careful that you don’t wind up with people who take advantage of you.

Mars In The Houses

Mars In The Houses

Although we typically look to Mars in the signs first to learn about any Mars placements, Mars in the houses is super important too.

Mars usually shows how you physically manifest what you need. It is a planet of aggression, drive, attraction, endurance, and desire. 

When you’re looking at Mars in the houses, you will see the area that your Mars qualities play out.

For example, with Mars in the 2nd house, you’re likely to be assertive and driven when it comes to material acquisitions. With Mars in the 7th house, you’re more likely to show these Mars qualities in relationships. 

Keep in mind when reading Mars in the houses that these descriptions will be heavily influenced by the actual sign that your Mars is in. Mars in the houses can only tell you so much.

If you have Mars in the 1st house, which can be aggressive and assertive, but your Mars is in Cancer, you may find that some of these qualities are diluted. 

Read through these descriptions of Mars in the houses then try to figure out how your Mars sign can apply to the description.

Mars in the 1st house causes you to act independently. Mars is most at home here, so your Mars qualities are quite evident.

You want things done right. With Mars in the 6th house, you have no patience for sloppiness. Attention to detail is very important to you.

Because you have such strong opinions about work, you tend to work independently or to run your own business. You’re very good at the actual management of a business but may struggle with your people skills.

The problem lies in the fact that others might not be as perfectionistic. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses, but with Mars in the 6th house, you will have trouble adjusting your expectations. You want others to have the same strengths that you possess.

It can actually cause depression when you realize that others aren’t living up to your standards. Mars in the 6th house can be all or nothing, so it’s hard for you to climb out of your hole unless you see significant progress.

The goal with Mars in the 6th house is to learn that people will work much harder for you when they’re appreciated. Your impulse is to “help” people become better versions of themselves, but it can come across as criticism, though you’re just trying to help.

In a relationship, you’re very good at maintaining the bond day to day. However, you can get easily turned off because of small, health-related details. Otherwise, you’re actually pretty sexual.

You’re probably drawn to people who are more assertive than you. Depending on the sign that your Mars in the 7th house is in, you might even be drawn to slightly aggressive people.

You look for motivation and drive in someone else because you have trouble finding it in yourself. When you’re alone, you may feel lost or restless.

Generally, you have trouble finishing tasks with Mars in the 7th house. You probably work better on a team because they can keep you grounded and help you check all of the boxes. You have big ideas but don’t always see them through.

With Mars in the 7th house, you’re always looking for a partner who will push you and bring out your own assertive qualities.

In fact, Mars in the 7th house is all about a relationship. It’s probably hard for you to separate sex and love.

Mars In The 8th House

With Mars in the 8th house, you don’t like to be seen as vulnerable. You keep your inner self hidden deep down.

Even though you don’t want others to see your vulnerabilities, you’re very good at reading other people and can use that to your advantage. You may put quite a bit of energy into figuring things out about others.

Mars in the 8th house means that you want to know what’s going on behind the scenes at all times. You hate not knowing something and don’t like being fooled.

In fact, many people with Mars in the 8th house pride themselves on not being fooled, ever. They can be a bit intense about it.

Your drive and motivation is equally as intense. When you start something, you’re all in, and typically have an emotional connection to the outcome. You can become very depressed if things don’t go the way you hope.

With Mars in the 8th house, you demand absolute loyalty from everyone. Your drive goes towards figuring out secrets and knowing people in a deep way, so if you find out that someone has “pulled one over” on you, the relationship may end abruptly.

Mars in the 8th house also means that you can be a little possessive of loved ones. You get attached easily and are very intense in relationships.

With Mars in the 8th house, you view sex as a vehicle of discovery. You want to connect with your partner on a deeper level through sex. Sometimes, because there are such emotional ties to the sexual act, you may find that physical attention becomes a compulsion, although this will of course depend on the sign and aspects.

You do allow your partner to see a deeper part of your personality during sex.

Mars in the 8th house means that you generally hide who you are (this is part of your drive), but sex is one of the places you can let your full depth show, which is why you can sometimes desire a lot of sex. It’s one of the only outlets available to a Mars in the 8th house person.

Mars In The 9th House

Mars in the 9th house makes you openminded and interesting. You love learning new things, trying different activities, or having a lively debate.

You’re also social, kind, and humorous. You may be relatively firm in your beliefs once you solidify them, but until then you’re investing in figuring it out. With Mars in the 9th house, you’re always very sincere in what you believe and won’t think something just because you are pressured into it.

You’re open-minded and fun, but you also can’t stand boredom. Your Mars sign will show how you need to stay stimulated.

For example, Mars in Sagittarius will mean that you need to be thinking about the big ideas, philosophy, religion, spirituality, sociology, etc. However, Mars in Aries will mean that you need to be physically active and refuse to just sit around for days at a time.

Generally, people with Mars in 9th house are fun to be around. They’re up for anything and are typically kind and well-received.

However, you may struggle with day-to-day life with Mars in the 9th house. It’s hard for you to descend into monotony. You don’t like the idea of responsibility, even if you force yourself to do it.

Your drive is sparked when you’re able to find the meaning in what you’re doing. Without a higher meaning, you feel as though you’re drifting aimlessly. Mars in the 9th house indicates that you need a point or reason to work hard.

When you can find that point or meaning, you will work incredibly hard. You’re not afraid of an uphill battle if it’s for a good reason.

In a relationship, you value fun and “in the moment” experiences. You may approach physical attraction and sex as a sport. Sex can be playful and exciting; you tend to like variety.

However, you may also be very attached to the higher meaning of your relationship. You need to feel like you’re in a relationship for a purpose or you will quickly drop off.

Mars In The 10th House

With Mars in the 10th house, you’re very serious and focused on being successful. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re business minded (although you may be), but simply that you care a lot about whatever it is you define as success.

Typically, your goal is to be the leader, not just another employee. You might not like being told what to do.

Mars in the 10th house is all about getting ahead. You might be so focused on reaching your destination that you don’t have much patience for others.

Hard work doesn’t phase you with Mars in the 10th house. You’re definitely not scared of a challenge! You will simply make a plan then execute it.

Even though you take your work life very seriously, you also take your personal life quite seriously. It’s important for you to create a stable home or family life.

With Mars in the 10th house, you demand loyalty and commitment from those you’re attached to. You will be responsible and reliable but you expect the same from others.

When someone doesn’t agree with you, it’s easy for you to cut them out and simply ignore them. You might come off as cold or calculating, but in reality you’re simply focused on achieving your objective due to your Mars in the 10th house.

You may not have the best people skills, unless you have other aspects in your chart that create sociable qualities. Specifically with Mars in the 10th house, your drive is to accomplish things, not to make friends, unless that will get you closer to your end goal.

Competition doesn’t scare you as long as you have the ability to make a plan and execute it. However, you will never compromise your beliefs or ideals to win.

With Mars in the 10th house, you may have an obsession with being practical. Anything that you perceive as frivolous feels absolutely useless to you. Typically, you are task-oriented, even in your personal life. You may not have much room for emotional people.

Sometimes, you can have a bit of a “superior air” about you. This can make it hard for you to have equal relationships with others. You want to be respected, but only by those you consider important; you can sometimes diminish those who you see as less than you or who don’t have quite as many accomplishments.

As you grow with Mars in the 10th house, you will learn to be more compromising and take other peoples’ feelings into consideration. This can feel like a waste of time for you because you have a one-track mind, but you will come to find that the benefits outweigh the negatives.

You certainly do have a need for others’ approval, but you can come off as mechanical. It might be difficult for you to form close attachments with others, even though this is something you would like deep down. Learning how to better relate to others will aid you on your journey.

With Mars in the 10th house, you have a lot of courage to act independently and to be a self-starter. Developing people skills and empathy will get you where you want to go much more quickly, however.

In relationships, with Mars in the 10th house you can be a bit uptight when it comes to both public displays of affection and private physical attachments. You will want to learn how to let go and be in the moment.

Alternatively, you can have a bit of a superiority complex and might even be a bit selfish when it comes to physical affection with your partner. It can be very hard for you to put yourself in your partner’s shoes, but this is what you will need to learn in order to have an equal and peaceful relationship.

Mars In The 11th House

With Mars in the 11th house, you try to think out of the box and try different methods to achieve what you want. The way that you fix issues seems unexpected to other people because your mind simply works different.

Your Mars in the 11th house certainly shines in social situations. You will especially notice the qualities of your specific Mars signs when you’re in large groups of friends.

A large part of your drive is related to making friends. You feel very strongly that you must have a social circle surrounding you, and the way that you make friends will be based on the sign your Mars is in.

For example, someone with Mars in the 11th house in Scorpio will try to make friends by becoming attached rather quickly and creating deep, intense relationships. However, a person with Mars in the 11th house in Gemini would much rather have large group of acquaintances who they can have intellectual conversations with.

Generally, your drive will be tied to other people in some way. It’s probably hard for you to get something done unless it ties to other people.

For example, with Mars in the 11th house, you might struggle to accomplish a task unless you know that others will see it and think highly of you for it. Alternatively, you push forward with tasks to protect your family or group of friends, but might have difficulty doing something just for a career advancement with no other benefits.

Some people with Mars in the 11th house desire to be the center of a social circle. Other individuals want to be accepted or simply surrounded by people. 

With Mars in the 11th house, you might be aggressive or outspoken socially or maybe you’re just the life of the party. Again, much of this will depend on your specific Mars sign; the sign your Mars is in is extremely important with Mars in the 11th house.

I do find that almost everyone with Mars in the 11th house is a bit competitive with other people. This isn’t always a bad thing and can actually motivate you to work harder or faster.

Sexually, you love novelty. With Mars in the 11th house, you can actually be a bit detached, but you do enjoy having sex. You can even be a bit freaky. Your partner might feel like you love the idea of something new more than being with them, especially if your partner has more water sign planets.

Mars In The 12th House

The 12th house is the area of the subconscious mind, dreams, past life memories, and emotions that we don’t want to recognize. It’s the place where we push down those big scary things to try and forget.

Because the 12th house is typically subconscious or unconscious, it can be hard to figure out exactly how Mars, the planet of action and drive, would fit.

With Mars in the 12th house, your motivation, drive, anger, and other Mars-related qualities are pushed down into the subconscious. It will take active work to make them fully conscious.

If you have Mars in the 12th house, you probably struggled to assert yourself in a natural way when you were young. You couldn’t openly express what you wanted and definitely couldn’t go after your desires.

Most often, I find that people with Mars in the 12th house felt caught between helping others and doing what was truly right for them, especially in childhood. This can apply to their parents if one or both of their parents expected the child to serve the parent in some way or it can apply to other caretakers.

Now, with Mars in the 12th house, you may still struggle between doing what you are told is “right” and doing what’s actually right for you. It may be very difficult for you to be assertive.

Sometimes, children with Mars in the 12th house are lucky enough to have parents who see these traits and help them learn how to be more assertive. This is rare but it does happen.

More likely, children with Mars in the 12th house had parents who either didn’t see that they needed help with assertiveness or who actually abused these qualities in their children for their own gain.

With Mars in the 12th house, you need to learn to put yourself and your own interests first. You may have a vague sense of guilt or existential doom that follows you around, so you try to help others to assuage these feelings, but it doesn’t work because these negative beliefs were created from false lessons that you learned in childhood.

You might feel defeated when you have just started a project. It’s easier for you to quit than it is to see it through. Mars is related to drive, so it can be difficult for you to really access your internal motivation with Mars in the 12th house.

It might feel like any efforts to be seen or heard don’t work, so you might as well not even try. You don’t have confidence that you deserve what you want, so you give to other people instead of asking for what you need.

As you probably know by now if you have Mars in the 12th house, giving to others never really fixes the difficult emotions rolling around inside of you. Although you don’t show it, your subconscious mind always knows what you want deep down. You never really truly forget what you authentically desire, even though you don’t express it.

You tend to do things for others or for the “greater good,” even if doing these things conflicts with your own inner voice.

For example, you may join the army for your country even if doing so contradicts what you need. You may work at a job that you hate because you feel that you should. Even on a smaller scale, you probably run to the rescue of people who don’t always reciprocate, but you will simply feel too guilty if you ignore them so you must help.

Of course, this will manifest differently for every person. Not every example in this description will apply to you.

The crux of the matter is that, with Mars in the 12th house, you end up fighting others’ battles instead of your own. You feel constantly torn between yourself and others and have a persistent, nagging sense of guilt that follows you around. In some way, you self-sabotage because you can’t handle all the negative feelings brewing in your subconscious mind.

With Mars in the 12th house, you may also have difficulty expressing your anger in a healthy manner. You repressed your anger during childhood because you were taught by someone that it wasn’t OK to show anger at all.

You might also be afraid of your own anger. There is so much of it brewing that you feel once you begin to get angry, you’ll never be able to stop. 

With Mars in the 12th house, your anger can be displaced. You may get angry at someone who doesn’t deserve it or blow up over something inconsequential. The anger will show up where it doesn’t belong because you are like a pressure cooker and need to release it somehow.

When you feel overwhelmed, you may be a bit of an escapist, turning to drugs, alcohol, sex, or even experiences that give you a “high.” You’re inclined to jump ship and run away when your emotions begin flooding you. It’s common for people with Mars in the 12th house to think: “What’s the point?”

Becoming assertive will be a learned skill for you. It’s not something that comes naturally, but learning to assert yourself will make you feel much more peaceful inside. It will also help to dispel some of the built-up anger you feel.

In a relationship, you may be drawn to those who either are or appear slightly unattainable. With Mars in the 12th house, you can also be attracted to the idea of someone rather than the reality.

Sexually, you may have some issues. You are drawn towards the unattainable person, but when you’re suddenly with someone who actually is attainable, you don’t know how to unlock your emotions and be vulnerable. You can come off as closed-off or detached.

This is simply because you don’t access your emotions on your own, so until you learn more about your subconscious mind, you won’t be able to access those feelings with someone else (which is even more terrifying).

When you’re actually in a relationship, you have trouble asking for what you want and need. In fact, you probably feel guilty for even having needs, but are simultaneously angry when you feel like a doormat.

Mars in the 12th house is all about learning how to handle your anger and express your needs in a healthy way, instead of stuffing your thoughts down or blowing up. Luckily, it is quite possible for any individual with Mars in the 12th house to learn to be assertive.

This isn’t something that comes naturally. Books, research, therapy, and practical experience can all help you with Mars in the 12th house to express yourself in a positive, constructive way. Your tendency will be to revert to your previous methods when you’re afraid, but you will overcome this with time.

They need reassurance quite often (although not constantly). With Venus in Leo, you really just want to be noticed by your partner. If you feel seen and cherished then you will be at peace in a relationship.

For a Venus in Leo individual, actions and physical expressions of love are best. Words are good, but these folks won’t believe them until they see the actions behind the words.

In a relationship, you are very generous with your time and money. When you are able, you will be lavish with those you care about and will give thoughtful gifts, bring your partner on a night out, etc. You want to show your partner that you care for them.

Most Venus in Leo people become really upset if they feel that they have been humiliated or betrayed. Anything that hurts their pride will have a lasting impact.

It’s hard for them to let go of these hurts. While they don’t exactly hold a grudge, they will simply feel extremely sensitive about a topic, even years later.

At the end of the day, the Venus in Leo person just wants to feel wanted. They will give this back in droves. They enjoy the “lovey” part of a relationship and never want this to end.

Venus in Leo people take their relationships very seriously. Romantic relationships and the outcomes of their relationships are simply a reflection of who they are because they live from the heart.

Venus In Leo: Best & Worst Qualities

Venus in Leo people are extremely gregarious and warmhearted, but they can also have emotional instability issues because they work so much from the heart. Alternatively, the can be a bit egotistical and wrapped up in the self.

The positives for Venus in Leo are the negatives when you look at both sides of the coin. There is no positive without an equal negative.

Here are the most common qualities with the Venus in Leo placement. Keep in mind that no individual will have all of these qualities because it will depend on your specific placement (aspects, house, etc.), but many of them are likely to show up.

Best:

  • Warmhearted
  • Affectionate
  • Generous
  • Romantic
  • Caring
  • Considerate
  • Adventerous

Worst:

  • Dramatic
  • Restless
  • Depressed
  • Inflated
  • Highborn

Venus In Leo: Man vs. Woman

This part can get a little confusing, so bear with me as I explain it. Basically, Venus shows itself differently for someone with more masculine energy than it does for someone with more feminine energy.

It’s up to you to choose with energy you identify with more. If you’re unsure, I recommend reading the description of each energy for Venus in Leo (below) and choosing what resonates with you.

Generally, in a woman (or someone with feminine energy), Venus will show how the person acts and what vibes they gives off towards others. When this person is flirting, they will assume many of the qualities of Venus in Leo. These Leo qualities will show up directly in the personality.

In a man (or someone with masculine energy), Venus will show what kind of qualities they are attracted to. How this person will act depends on their Mars sign, but their Venus sign dictates what types of energy they are drawn towards in a partner.

As we evolve and change and the gender lines blur, these distinctions become less absolute. For example, I find that most women will show a lot of the qualities of their Venus when they’re flirting, but a few of their Mars qualities will bleed through also.

It’s important to learn about both Venus and Mars. Each person has a unique combination of both qualities, although this combination may be swayed slightly depending on the person’s gender.

Lastly, a man who is ultra-comfortable with his sexuality will display many more of his Venus qualities, while a man who struggles with his sexuality probably won’t “own” these Venusian qualities, so he will instead look for them in a female partner.

The Venus In Leo Man:

The typical Venus in Leo man is super confident. He might be the life of the party socially. In a group, he won’t analyze things too deeply but will simply act on his instincts, which are usually correct.

This guy likes to be the main character; this comes to him naturally. He is playful and fun to be around, so people flock to him. He’s a natural socializer. If you’re hosting a party, the Venus in Leo man is a great guest to have around!

Romantically, the Venus in Leo man leans towards powerful partners. He is attracted to confidence and will want the most self-assured partner in the room.

While this man sometimes likes outgoing partners, he is generally attracted to the person who “runs” the group, whether they’re outgoing or introverted. He wants the most “important” person. He cares quite a bit about energetic status.

At the same time, the Venus in Leo man is also attracted to beauty. He enjoys a pretty face, nice clothes, and fine jewelry, but he is first attracted to confidence. He won’t be interested in beauty if it isn’t accompanied by an inner confidence. 

The Venus in Leo man is happy to shower his partner with praise and affection when he is into the relationship. He always expect the same back. This man likes to be pampered by his partner and needs to know that he is wanted.

The Venus in Leo man is likely to take things personally, especially if his partner criticizes him. He is rather fragile when he’s emotionally invested and needs to be treated delicately when his feelings are involved.

He can be a bit intense once he is committed to a relationship. It’s hard for him to avoid jealousy, but he also loves romance. He is fun loving and craves variety; this is the guy who will enjoy entertaining dates and nights out.

Occasionally, the Venus in Leo man can be outshined by his partner once he’s actually in a relationship, especially if his partner embodies many Leo qualities. This is not always the case and depends on the house and aspect.

The Venus In Leo Woman:

The Venus in Leo woman has a magnetic personality that “catches” people. Others seem to gravitate towards her. There might not be anything inherently special about the Venus in Leo woman; she simply has a magnetic energy.

Even if the Venus in Leo woman isn’t the loudest, she manages to grab attention in some way. She might do this unintentionally or intentionally. 

The Venus in Leo woman wants a grand, romantic love story when she first means someone. She is constantly looking for an epic love, even if this desire is subconscious.

She will try to impress potential partners with her power. She simply uses her gravitational energy a bit more around them and often ends up at the center of things.

Sometimes, potential partners are also captivated by her creative energy, although this will depend on the placement and aspects. She can easily form partnerships that are based around her creative endeavors, hobbies, or job.

In a relationship, the Venus in Leo woman is very loyal, but she also wants to be shown that her partner values her in return. Her biggest fear is indifference.

If you’re with a Venus in Leo woman, remember to bring her small trinkets after a trip away or little gifts here and there to show that you remember her. She doesn’t need anything super expensive but she does want things that come from the heart.

In return, the Venus in Leo woman is generous with her partners, too. She will shower them with gifts and love without hesitation. 

While the Venus in Leo woman can be a bit jealous at times, she might try to hard this or avoid acting on these feelings in public. Her partners are more likely to notice her bossiness, although the Venus in Leo woman won’t even realize she’s doing it because she’s focused on her own things.

In bed, the Venus in Leo woman is playful and passionate. It’s really important to her that the spark is kept alive. Again, her biggest fear is indifference. She would rather be playing or fighting instead of just avoiding each other. She wants to know that her partner cares for her in some way.

Ultimately, others can’t help but enjoy being around the Venus in Leo woman. She has a super infectious energy that leaks out to everyone around her. She can singlehandedly lift the spirits of any room.

How To Master The Venus In Leo Energy

Venus in Leo people speak and work from the heart. This can be really beneficial because they have a lot of love to give, but it can also mean that they can’t separate from their emotions.

The goal is for Venus in Leo folks to work on thinking things through before they act with logic and discernment. They need to sit down, make a list, and figure out what’s really going on with their feelings.

It is easy for those with Venus in Leo to lash out when they feel hurt, but a bit of self-therapy can go a long way and may save many of their relationships. 

If you have Venus in Leo, work on yourself when you feel hurt instead of trying to change others. Once you know your own feelings and can explain them without attacking the other person then your relationships will be much improved.

All About Mars in Pisces In The Birth Chart

All About Mars in Pisces In The Birth Chart

Mars is known for being the planet of drive, ambition, anger, and passion, but Mars in Pisces is a bit of an enigma. Pisces is generally peaceful and emotional while Mars is active and aggressive.

How, then, do these qualities fit together?

Mars in Pisces is known as the “peaceful warrior.” Although Mars in Pisces people can be extremely driven, they’re also emotional and fantastical. They ride the waves of emotion and ambition as they come and don’t fret when they’re just not feeling it.

Mars in Pisces Characteristics

The main characteristics that the planet Mars shows are one’s drive and ambition, one’s temper, how one pushes through career/conducts themselves in the workplace, and how someone acts in a romantic relationship.

Drive

With Mars in Pisces, you might sometimes be unsure about what you want. Life may happen to you because you struggle to control what’s happening.

The Mars in Pisces drive is always tied to emotion. If you don’t know what you want then you have no strong feelings either way. Your moods change often so your drive is likely to change, too.

You have bursts of energy tied to emotion that are coupled with periods of inaction. With Mars in Pisces, you’re often moody, so your drive is completely tied to your frame of mind and changes quite a bit.

Practicality will certainly kill your drive. Because you thrive on emotions and fantasies, being forced to be practical hurts your motivation.

Daily life can feel very difficult for you. It’s hard for you to “just do it” unless you’re in the right emotional space. Others may struggle to understand this, but it’s simply the way you’re wired with Mars in Pisces.

Many of your emotions are unconscious so it’s nearly impossible for you to control them. This also means that you don’t have much control over your drive and motivation with Mars in Pisces. Intellectual reasoning won’t help you; something must personally and emotionally tie you to a project in order to keep you engaged.

You tend to work hard for your idealized picture of hold things should be. While you have grand ideas, your mood might shift before you’re able to make much progress.

If you can hold onto a mood then you will work extremely diligently to achieve what you want because you’re so tied to it unconsciously.

At the end of the day with Mars in Pisces, you are a big dreamer and will always fight for your dreams. No dream is too big! When you’re devoted, you will see something through to the end, no matter the cost.

Temper

With Mars in Pisces, your moods can be unpredictable and intense. You quickly build up energy because you feel so acutely. This energy must be released in some way (by journaling, expressing yourself creatively, working out, etc.) or it will manifest as an outburst.

When you get angry, you probably feel a bit guilty about it. You might release a quick burst of anger on someone else but then feel immediately remorseful. You can also be passive aggressive and unpredictable.

Alternatively with Mars in Pisces, you suppress your anger and get lost in your fantasies to cope. This type of anger will often manifest physically as disease or a vague sickness that’s undiagnosable. 

While those with Mars in Pisces don’t outwardly get angry very often like an Aries might, they can have a lot of difficulty controlling their emotions.

They are likely to have emotional outbursts that are unrelated to the root cause of the issue simply because they have build up so much anger, like a pressure-cooker. Mars in Pisces folks can be a bit melodramatic.

These outbursts might be uncontrollable and sporadic. They might make no logical sense to other people, but this is because the emotions simply have to go somewhere, so these people will get upset at the next available chance.

Mars in Pisces folks can have some personally painful emotional ups and downs. There is no controlling their emotions. They just need to ride them out before they can reset and move on.

Career

With Mars in Pisces, you probably won’t step on anyone to make it to the top. You’re not competitive with anyone except yourself.

You will typically be successful when you feel emotionally tied to a career. For example, someone with Mars in Pisces could be an amazing athlete, but this is because they feel so passionately about the sport. They simply can’t separate emotions from actions.

Sometimes, it is difficult for people with Mars in Pisces to hold a job because their moods are so unpredictable, but much of this will depend on the rest of their chart and how directly involved Mars is in their career.

Those with Mars in Pisces can make great leaders or advocates when they believe strongly in a cause. They do their best work when they are emotionally tied to their job and they will stop at nothing to achieve what they desire.

Attraction

With Mars in Pisces, you are attracted to your own fantasies or projections of people instead of who they really are. It’s hard for you to see the actual individual right in front of you because you’re looking at your own picture of them in your head.

You’re also attracted to how you feel around someone. If someone makes you feel happy or “high” emotionally, you’re more likely to spend time around them.

Sometimes, you might be attracted to imbalance in relationships. You gravitate towards the needy or the underdogs because imbalance intrigues you.

With Mars in Pisces, you probably love the rush of dopamine you get when you first meet someone. Pisces is all about the “first date butterflies.”  You want to live in your fantasies, but this is much easier to do when you first meet someone than it is in a long-term relationship.

Because your attraction is so specific, you can be intrigued by someone one moment and gone the next. It might be confusing for others, but your mind changes according to your moods and fantasies, so there is no way for the other person to really figure you out.

When you’re acting on your attraction, you aren’t forceful. You simply put out a subtle shift in your energy that others can sense.

Romance/Sex

In a relationship, you might be a bit like a chameleon with Mars in Pisces. Sometimes you can be outgoing and bubbly, while other times you’re moody and withdrawn. You have no clear baseline.

Many people with Mars in Pisces end up in relationships that are unbalanced in some way, whether this is due to money, age, or simply an unequal energy (with one partner being much more powerful, controlling, loud, etc.).

You’re very sensitive and you are easily hurt. However, you also forgive easily, even if your partner has done something that feels completely unforgivable. A day later, all is forgotten.

You may be very passive or even a little detached, but this is only because you’re invested in your own daydream. When you’re caught up in a new idea or fantasy, you’re all in, and might not have time for your partner.

You’re loyal when you’re feeling romantic. In fact, you won’t be able to think of anything but your partner with Mars in Pisces. If your fantasy changes, then you’re prone to fickleness. It’s difficult for people with Mars in Pisces to stay invested over the long haul.

With Mars in Pisces, you have a strong need for love.  Sexually, you’re turned on by romance, secrecy, privacy, and emotional power imbalances. It’s almost impossible for you to separate sex and love.

Sometimes, you enjoy the idea of the chase. You can easily project your idea of the other person (rather than who they really are) and the chase gives you time to do this.

Reality is actually a bit of a turn-off for you; sex that is all about fantasy and romance is right up your alley. You have to be in the right mood to want anything physical; once you’re out of the mood then there’s no recapturing it.

The goal is for people with Mars in Pisces to figure out a balance between living in a fantasy world (which they always need to some extent) and seeing reality. Ideally, they will do a bit of self work and learn how to discern what’s true and what’s false without giving up the romantic aura that they crave.

Mars in Pisces: Worst and Best Qualities

Every placement has both good and bad qualities. Mars in Pisces is no different!

Keep in mind that, with Mars in Pisces, you won’t necessarily have all of these qualities.

These qualities are possibilities, but the qualities that you actually embody will depend on the rest of your chart as well as the house and aspects of Mars.

Most people with Mars in Pisces show about half of these qualities (a mix of positive and negative traits) based on their individual birth charts.

Best:

  • Sensitive
  • Romantic
  • Emotional
  • Devoted
  • Supportive
  • Gentle
  • Easygoing
  • Appreciative
  • Sacrificing
  • Etherial
  • Fantastical
  • Creative

Worst:

  • Unsure
  • Vulnerable
  • Stagnant
  • Cowardly
  • Escapist
  • Fickle
  • Temperamental
  • Delusional

Mars in Pisces: Male versus Female

Mars and Venus will showcase different qualities for men and women depending on how they self-identify.

Generally, in a man, Mars will show how he acts to attract, whether consciously or subconsciously, and Venus will show what kind of qualities he is attracted to.

In a woman, Mars will show what kind of qualities she is attracted to, while Venus will show how she acts to attract.

Feel free to choose the label that works best for you in this context (being attracted to another person’s energy).

For example, sometimes a gay man will identify with the male archetype because he tends to be attracted to feminine qualities in other men, while other times a gay man will identify with the female archetype of his Mars because he is attracted the masculine qualities that his Mars gives off.

These archetypes aren’t used by everyone and definitely aren’t absolute. I’m a straight woman, but I find that sometimes the vibes from my Mars show up in myself when I’m flirting. Traditionally, only my Venus should show, but clearly the tradition rules are just guidelines that aren’t always exact.

Take this all with a grain of salt: this is the traditional way of doing it. I don’t think it’s 100% accurate, but in my experience, there’s a good 80% of truth in these archetypes for the average person.

NOTE: if you’re a member of the LGBTQ+ community then you will want to figure out which energy you identify with more. It’s a personal journey to figure out how you use your Mars versus Venus, or you may have some combination of both (as most of us do regardless of our sexual orientations). Read through the descriptions and see what fits for you.

It’s ok if you aren’t totally sure and is fine to take pieces of both. There is no set in stone here – these are just guidelines to help you figure out your chart!

The Mars In Pisces Man:

The Mars in Pisces man probably won’t make the first move or initiate unless he’s really in the mood to do so. He has many mood swings, so the initial meeting will depend on where in his mood cycle he is.

Most likely, he will slowly get closer to someone he likes and try to build an emotional connection until they begin to reciprocate his feelings. He is inconspicuous in his “chase.” The more he enjoys the chase, the more he begins to idealize his crush.

When the Mars in Pisces man first meets someone, he will feel what they want and can turn into his partner’s dream man. He is the ultimate emotional chameleon which can be very confusing for his partner, at first.

He is super mushy when he likes someone. The Mars in Pisces man is the person to pull out all of the romantic stops, to write poetry, to gush about his lover, etc. He falls head over heels when he finds someone he likes.

He can be a bit reckless in love, especially at first. His love interest quickly becomes the center of his universe. No one and nothing else matters to him because his emotions are what drive him.

The Mars in Pisces man will learn all of the things that his love interest likes and replicate these things for them. He wants his love interest to know that he will take care of them emotionally by making them feel safe and happy. 

In short, the Mars in Pisces is the classic “nice guy” when he likes someone, but his moods can change quite suddenly, so this might not last long.

In a relationship, the Mars in Pisces man can be a bit dramatic. He could manifest drama by creating an issue. His partner may be very confused about why he’s doing this, but the Mars in Pisces man lives in a fantasy some of the time, so the issue he has created feels quite real to him.

The Mars in Pisces man tends to think that his personal drama is the most important thing happening in the world. It’s hard for him to disengage from what he is feeling inside.

The underdog position is the perfect spot for the Mars in Pisces man. He might not mean to have the victim mentality, but he definitely knows how to get what he needs by playing the victim. He might unconsciously attract women who feel bad for him and want to care for him.

For example, Mars in Pisces men can sometimes have addiction problems, if they rest of their chart supports this. These men are likely to find women who want to “save” them from their addictions with love. This is a slippery slope that isn’t often successful unless a dose of reality is introduced to the relationship.

The Mars in Pisces man has an etherial, mysterious vibe that lures women to him. His partners are always worried that he will self-destruct so they tend to be more concerned about his needs than their own.

If the Mars in Pisces man isn’t mentally healthy, he can wreak a lot of havoc on his partners’ emotional and mental well-beings. If he is grounded, then he can be a sensitive and caring loving, as long as he reciprocates.

Even though the Mars in Pisces man can take a lot from his lover, he doesn’t actually think he is better than anyone. He can actually think quite badly of himself and have confidence problems.

When the Mars in Pisces man is angry, he is likely to express it indirectly by being passive aggressive or starting drama about something else entirely. It’s hard for him to say exactly what he is upset about because he stuffs his anger down.

He might alternatively express his anger onto himself instead of the other person. This can be really painful for him and can damage his mental state. He will want to learn to express anger in a healthy and constructive way by asking for what he needs instead of just hoping he gets it.

Sometimes, the Mars in Pisces man can even have insecurity about how emotional he is. He will try to counteract his never-ending emotions with masculine hobbies such as working out, sports, cars, the military, or anything that makes him feel more traditionally masculine.

This is typically a misplaced effort to get control of his own emotions because they’re simply so vast. In reality, the Mars in Pisces man would do well to simply work with his emotions and learn how to express them in a healthy, constructive way.

Other men with Mars in Pisces aren’t insecure about this and embrace their emotions wholeheartedly; much of this will depend on the rest of the chart and life circumstances, as well as how their parents reacted to their emotional outbursts.

The Mars In Pisces Woman:

The Venus in Pisces woman will have an etherial, dreamy aspect to her character that potential partners will sense from across the room. She enjoys a delicate, energetic chase, instead of someone who comes on too strong.

The classic Mars in Pisces woman is attracted to partners with soft, sensitive energy. They may also be intrigued by moody or unpredictable people. 

Sometimes, this can mean that the Mars in Pisces woman is attracted to musicians, artists, or spiritually-inclined people, or she may just be captivated by those who have a deep and tortured energy, regardless of their job.

Because Pisces is so elusive and fantastical, the men she ends up with may not have any of these qualities. She might have simply manifested the idea! Once she decides that someone is tortured or is a victim, it’s hard for her to change the picture in her head, even if reality doesn’t support it.

For example, a Mars in Pisces woman may meet a man and hear him say just one emotional thing about his past. Even though he is emotionless much of the time, she clings to the idea of the statement he said and will visualize a picture of him that isn’t real.

Once the Mars in Pisces woman feels an emotionally connection, she is “hooked.” She wants to feel that the other person is energetically all in right away. If she can be blown away emotionally, that’s all she needs.

It’s easy for the Mars in Pisces woman to be out of touch with who her partner really is. She believes what a partner shows her immediately, even if it’s just an initial facade. Once she has created a fantasy world around her partner it’s difficult for her to let go of it.

She is drawn to the underdog or to anyone with a sad story. Because her feelings dictate if a relationship should proceed, she can have trouble with her judgment. Her feelings will often be based around the first meeting instead of the relationship today.

She will either get stuck in an unhappy, longterm relationship, or she will flee when she realizes her partner isn’t what she projected. The Mars in Pisces woman has a tendency to be a bit of a love addict.

Over time, the Mars in Pisces woman will learn how to discern what’s real and to use her gut feelings in relationships. She will need some practice; it’s very difficult for a Venus in Pisces woman to discern reality from fantasy when she’s young.

It’s perfectly natural for this woman to have more than a few relationships in order to learn the skills she needs to find a suitable partner. In the beginning of her journey, she will be desperate to fulfill her emotional fantasies, but over time she will learn that long-term stability makes her happier than the initial fantasy.

Ideally, she will end up with someone who is also a bit responsible and steady. She will still be looking for a dose of romantic energy, but the best partner for her will be someone amorous and grounded to help her stay balanced.

Ultimately, what the Mars in Pisces woman is really looking for is a safe haven. She wants someone to help her create an emotional space she can retreat to when the world feels overwhelming.

How to Master the Mars in Pisces Energy

The biggest lesson with Mars in Pisces is to learn how to create emotional boundaries between yourself and others.

You can do this by discerning what your real emotions are and why you have them instead of simply getting “caught up” in the emotional rollercoaster. Over time, your extreme emotions will start to feel depressing, which is when you will want to figure them out instead of just acting on them.

Mars in Pisces people have a tendency to be addicted to either substances or love, but this is because they want to avoid looking inward. It can be really scary for Mars in Pisces people to look at their feelings because they have so many of them.

However, this is the path to happiness. You want to figure out how to express your feelings in a healthy way instead of building them up and becoming passive aggressive.

When you’re able to figure out what you feel and why, and when you can tell others what you need in a constructive way, you will feel a lot happier and more well-adjusted in your own life.

All About Mars In Leo In The Birth Chart

All About Mars In Leo In The Birth Chart

Mars is known as the planet of drive, passion, and anger, but these qualities can vary greatly based on the placement. Mars in Leo in particular is a strong placement that can be really great for career and relationships.

Those with Mars in Leo are proud, driven, and charismatic.

The Mars in Leo placement is known for being image-driven, but I find that this is only because those with Mars in Leo have a different method of self-esteem repair than other placements.

These folks have a lot of ambition and are natural leaders. They really are the lions of the Mars signs! If you have the Mars in Leo placement, you’re forceful yet sincere. 

Every Mars placement has both positive and negative characteristics that I will delve into here!

Mars In Leo Characteristics

Mars shows many different areas of the personality, but Mars characteristics are especially evident in your drive, temper, career, relationships, and attraction.

Here are the ways that Mars in Leo tends to manifest in an individual’s personality.

Drive:

Because Leo is a fixed sign, with Mars in Leo you have a lot of staying power. Your drive is typically “long-term.”

This means that if you want something, you will work over a long period of time to get it. You probably have well-defined ambitions or at least know where you’d like to get in life.

Your drive is enhanced when your life has some sort of meaning. For you to achieve your goals, they need to have some sort of personal significance. Logic alone isn’t enough to make you want something.

Look to the house that Mars is in to determine in what areas of life you’re most likely to have a strong drive.

Mars in the 2nd house, for example, would give you a strong drive for money and possessions, while Mars in the 7th house would give you a drive for forming relationships and/or partnerships.

With Mars in Leo, you probably need a “calling” to be successful. You must feel like you’re doing something that’s meant for you.

You have a lot of authority and personal power. With the strong belief that you’ll get what you want, you can be quite successful.

Generally, Mars in Leo people are extremely determined with whatever they choose to do. Every Mars in Leo loves a challenge.

You never back down with Mars in Leo, even over the long haul. Tough challenges don’t scare you as long as you have a sense of purpose!

In fact, the only thing that will significantly dull your drive is losing your sense of purpose. You’re more afraid of feeling uninspired than of not succeeding.

With Mars in Leo, when you’re feeling bored or fidgety, you need to take action. Waiting too long will certainly kill your drive.

Taking action is always the answer when you’re feeling stuck. Just do it!

Temper:

Those with Mars in Leo have a quick temper when they feel personally humiliated or attacked. If you have Mars in Leo, you’re most likely to get angry when your ego is hurt.

It might be really hard for you to separate your accomplishments and attributes from your inner self, so you take any criticism very personally.

When you feel insulted (which can be quite often) you’re likely to hold a grudge. You feel like the person has attacked your character, even if this isn’t true.

You act with your heart with Mars in Leo. This can be good when you’re feeling loving, but it can also mean that you never forget when someone hurts you. You might not show it, but you always remember what someone has done.

These folks aren’t necessarily angry or explosive but are simply strong-willed. If their pride gets damaged they can be quite dramatic and cause a ruckus. 

It’s common for those with Mars in Leo to get really defensive when they’re hurt. They feel personally attacked whenever someone criticizes them or their work.

Mars in Leo folks will go out of their way to defend their principles. They are guided completely by their principles and feel strongly about their beliefs.

They can also be boastful, especially when young, although this isn’t always the case.

When it comes to relationships, those with Mars in Leo expect loyalty from others. If they don’t get loyalty they can become very upset and are not quick to forgive.

The goal is for those with Mars in Leo to learn how to control their ego and think with logic as well as their heart. 

Career:

If you have Mars in Leo, you are generally very sincere in your career. You certainly want to do well but you won’t cut corners to get what you want. You’re very honest.

You have a strong energy and can be quite successful. When you decide to do something, it is set in motion as soon as the decision itself is made because your energy is so powerful.

With Mars in Leo, you probably don’t like being told what to do. You prefer to figure things out yourself. To do so, you use classic problem solving abilities mixed with a dose of creativity.

You might be very successful with creative endeavors due to Mars in Leo, but this isn’t always the case and will depend on the house and placement. Generally, Leo is a creative or dramatic sign.

Those with Mars in Leo can be successful with theater, acting, screenwriting, creative writing, poetry, photography, hairdressing, music, communication, art, and anything else expressive or creative. They may also work with children.

I find that those with Mars in Leo are often attracted to “distinction” in some way. This can be for themselves or others. For some people with this placement, power or fame are very alluring.

Keep in mind that Mars alone does not determine your entire career, so you may have other placements (such as planets in your 10th house) that influence your career quite a bit.

Nevertheless, your Mars in Leo placement is likely to give your career a dose of creativity or flair, regardless of what you actually do.

You dream big and never stop trying no matter what happens. It simply isn’t in you to give up until you achieve what you want in career. The only time you may lapse in career is when you feel uninspired or unimportant.

With Mars in Leo, you have a quiet confidence that is simply powerful. You don’t necessarily tell everyone what you’re doing, but your tenacity shines through your work.

Attraction:

When you have the Mars in Leo placement, you over-romanticize relationships at first. Attraction is alluring to you because everything looks bright and shiny when you’re falling for someone.

You may have an underlying confident energy that others are attracted to. 

Sometimes with Mars in Leo, you fib a little to impress someone when you first meet them. You can overdo it to hide your weaknesses because you want to project the best version of yourself.

Those with Mars in Leo are often attracted to luxury. This may be luxurious items or it might simply be the air of luxury.

Romance/Sex:

With Mars in Leo, you want to be noticed and paid attention to in a relationship. You might even want your partner to worship you.

You can be generous with your partner as well, but you certainly want to be admired for yourself. You enjoy giving your time and effort as long as you receive the same back, too.

Your fantasies probably revolve around devotion. Sexually, being worshipped is very exciting to you.

Your pride is really fragile when it comes to romance and sex. You can be easily crushed by a few misplaced words.

In a relationship, you may be a bit possessive or jealous, but you probably try to hide it. You expect absolute loyalty from your partners.

You can be a bit bossy without realizing it because you’re simply focused on yourself and your own world. 

Of all of the Mars signs, it is the hardest for Mars in Leo to separate love and sex. Your sexual fantasies probably include a lot of love, affection, and admiration, so there aren’t many boundaries in your love life.

Nothing will kill your sex drive faster than ambivalence. You need to know that your partner is engaged and enjoying themselves. You may treat sex like a bit of a performance; this is more common for women.

At best, those with Mars in Leo are open and direct with their partners about what they need. At their worst, they manipulate or test their partners to see how much they “truly” love them.

Mars In Leo: Best & Worst Qualities

Every placement has both good and bad qualities. Mars in Leo is no different!

Mars In Leo: Male vs. Female

This part can get a little confusing, so bear with me as I explain it.

Basically, Mars shows itself differently for someone with more masculine energy than it does for someone with more feminine energy.

It’s up to you to choose with energy you identify with more. If you’re unsure, I recommend reading the description of each energy for Mars in Leo (below) and then choosing what resonates with you.

Generally, for a man or for someone with masculine energy) Mars will show how the person acts and the vibes that they gives off towards others. When this person is flirting, they will assume many of the qualities of Mars in Leo.

For a woman or for someone with feminine energy, Mars will show what kind of qualities they are attracted to. How this person will act depends on their Venus sign, but Mars dictates what types of energy they are drawn towards in a partner.

Keep in mind that these distinctions aren’t absolute. As a straight woman, I definitely show my Venus sign when I’m flirting, but sometimes my Mars will bleed through just a bit.

I find that these definitions are about 80% accurate, but we’re always a unique combination of all of our signs.

The Mars In Leo Man

The typical Mars in Leo man has a magnanimous energy. He’s sociable and attracts women easily with his energy.

Sometimes, the Mars in Leo man can be a bit domineering. He may want to be the center of attention.

Even though he may not actually do or say anything to imply he desires attention, his energy conveys this desire to others. He typically finds partners who are willing to give him the spotlight.

Although the Mars in Leo man might date casually, he always wants to come off as his absolute best. The way that he appears is very important to him and is an integral part of his self-esteem.

When you first meet the Mars in Leo man, he might come off as a bit unattainable. This energy tends to attract people to him.

Even though he feels elusive, he is also charismatic and gregarious. The Mars in Leo man is anything but cold.

He has a gravitational energy. People swarm towards him in a room, even if he looks perfectly average.

Sometimes, the Mars in Leo man can be easy to offend. He is often set off because his pride is so fragile. He can be hurt quite easily.

It can be difficult for a partner to deal with the Mars in Leo man. His partner will need to walk on eggshells from time to time.

If his partner deceives him, he is apt to leave and not turn back. He finds it very hard to forgive.

When it comes to attraction, the Mars in Leo man will typically be attracted to women who are popular but passive, although this will be influenced greatly by his Venus sign.

In bed, he is usually honest with his lover. He might criticize their technique under the guise of honesty but wants to be revered when it comes to his own technique. He certainly expects his lover to notice how “great” he is, whether or not it’s true.

The Mars in Leo man can be really loving and giving in his own way. He certainly projects a warm, gregarious energy, and if he transfers this to his partner then he can be wonderful.

The Mars In Leo Woman

The Mars in Leo woman is attracted to all things classy and impressive. She will be drawn towards the largest, most gravitational energy in the room.

She wants someone who is strong. The Mars in Leo woman isn’t attracted to weaklings; she wants a capable partner who knows their own mind. She has her own powerful energy and needs someone to rival it.

When the Mars in Leo woman is flirting, she will probably act more like her Venus sign (whatever that may be) but will feel like her Mars in Leo inside.

She has a powerful energy in her soul that is quite Leo. Sometimes, her potential partners sense this energy, even though her Venus sign is what they see more clearly at first. The Mars in Leo woman will want to be worshipped like a Leo. Her partner may not realize this at first because her Venus sign is more evident.

When she is first getting to know someone, the Mars in Leo woman may go slow. She can come off as slightly unattainable.

In a relationship, the Mars in Leo woman is romantic and fun. She enjoys lively dates and outings; she will need a partner who likes trying new, glamorous things with her.

The Mars in Leo woman can have a pretty high sex drive. At the same time, she may have difficulty in a long term relationship because she won’t know when to stop putting on a “performance.” It’s hard for her to stop worrying about what her partner is seeing and to just enjoy herself.

She ultimately seeks praise and approval, but she may have trouble telling her partner what she needs. Otherwise, the Mars in Leo might pick men who are simply unable to approve of her.

Even though she seeks approval, she can simultaneously be quite difficult to please. Sometimes, partners of the Mars in Leo woman feel as though they must walk on eggshells.

When upset, this woman can be very dramatic. She is the type to create theatrics over something small if her ego is hurt. It might be hard for her to say what’s really bothering her, so she deflects by creating a rather melodramatic conflict.

She will expect her partners to be generous with their time or money. This feels like love to her, however the specifics of what she wants will depend on the house placement and aspects to Mars.

The Mars in Leo woman can become depressed if she isn’t feeling noticed or praised. She needs validation to feel confident. This isn’t a lack of self-esteem but is simply how she is wired.

She may be attracted to attention-seeking men, but this can be a self-fulfilling prophecy because their egos may be too large to notice her properly, so she doesn’t get the validation that she needs.

The Mars in Leo woman isn’t scared to take up a challenging project. She actually loves a challenge as long as it promises fame or fortune.

She refuses to make compromises when she wants something. For the Mars in Leo woman, it’s all or nothing.

The Mars in Leo gal isn’t a safe bet but is always interesting. At her best, she’s quite driven and works from the heart in all that she does.

How To Master The Mars In Leo Energy

With Mars in Leo, you will want to work on finding a partner who gives you what you need emotionally instead of the person who has the largest gravitational energy.

It’s easy for you to end up in relationships with people who are popular or important but the relationships may be unfulfilling. The goal is to find a partner who both has this attractive energy and who is willing to fulfill your emotional needs.

It’s also important to learn how to ask for what you need. It may be your inclination to lash out when you’re not feeling noticed, but instead of starting dramatics, learn how to communicate more clearly. Ask for what you need instead of blowing up straight away.

Your pride is easily hurt and this can make your life a bit of an emotional roller coaster. Work on moderating your emotions and figuring out why you feel the way you do instead of lashing out or falling into depression.

Mars in Leo is all about the “work hard play hard” life. Don’t be afraid to do both! Live and enjoy life.

Part Of Fortune In The Houses & Signs

Part Of Fortune In The Houses & Signs

Part of Fortune is a less well-known placement in astrology but I find it to be so important. Everyone wants to know how they can make more money; Part of Fortune can tell you just that.

In ancient astrology, Part of Fortune was extremely important. It was called the lunar ascendant and was almost as important as our ascendant is now!

Part of Fortune is calculated by starting with the degree of the ascendant, minus the degree of the sun, plus the degree of the moon. It really is an integral astrology placement because it is calculated using the biggest three signs in your chart.

In transit charts, Part of Fortune is very popular because it is an indicator that an event will achieve a desired goal. If you’re looking to “time” prosperity, Part of Fortune is really important.

I find, however, that Part of Fortune is often overlooked in the natal chart. Your Part of Fortune will show you what qualities you need to be successful in general, not just for one point in time.

The Part Of Fortune Symbol:

Part of Fortune is named for the goddess Fortuna in Roman mythology, the goddess of fortune, money, and good luck.

In your birth chart, you can find the Part of Fortune astrology symbol that looks like this:

Like any other planet, asteroid, or point, Part of Fortune will be in a specific sign and a house.

What Does Part Of Fortune Mean In The Birth Chart?

Part of Fortune astrology represents how you can achieve success. This success can be defined as whatever is most important to you in this lifetime, whether you think about relationships, money, things, etc.

However, I generally find that Part of Fortune refers to money or material success for most people, unless you absolutely don’t care about money at all.

Your Part of Fortune astrology sign represents the qualities that you need to embrace in order to achieve your goals.

Like anything else, the Part of Fortune astrology sign has an exact opposite. For example, if your Part of Fortune is in Taurus, you have the urge to embrace some more Scorpionic qualities, but this will be detrimental to your longterm success.

In order to really achieve your goals, you need to learn how to embody the qualities of your Part of Fortune astrology sign instead of those of the opposite sign.

I feel that Part of Fortune is a very logical, unemotional placement. If you’re able to embrace the qualities of your Part of Fortune sign then you will succeed. It’s as simple as that.

Part of Fortune is an indicator of prosperity, but will also tell you how to reach the “pot of gold” towards the end of your life. It represents the traits that you need to develop in order to bring you material success and happiness.

You may already possess some of the traits of your Part of Fortune astrology sign, but there are always more that you can consciously develop in order to enhance your fortune.

Part Of Fortune In The Signs:

Part of Fortune is important in both the sign and house, but I recommend that you read your Part of Fortune astrology sign first, since the sign is typically more obvious to you than the house.

Part Of Fortune In Aries:

If you have Part of Fortune in Aries, you need to find your inner fire. Don’t be afraid of obstacles or challenges.

Come at any issues head on instead of shirking away. Part of Fortune in Aries means that you will find your ultimate fortune when you stand up to your problems instead of avoiding them.

You might need to do this alone at some points. You can have family or friends who support you, but Part of Fortune in Aries is all about finding your inner strength even when no one else can help you.

Be spontaneous when working towards goals. Follow your intuition and don’t be afraid to try new things or take risks! This is how you will achieve your dreams.

With Part of Fortune in Aries, you need to trust what you think and feel, not what others tell you. Don’t get swayed by social pressure, friends, partners, etc.

Always trust your own hunches. If something feels right, do it. Don’t worry about what everyone else will think.

Above everything else, with Part of Fortune in Aries, you should always be taking action. Just do it! If you don’t know what to do, try something and never be afraid to fail.

Part Of Fortune In Taurus:

With Part of Fortune in Taurus, hard work is key. Slow and steady wins the race!

You should be careful that you don’t get sucked into the emotional depth of what you’re doing. Instead, look at tasks factually and focus on what is tangible right in front of you.

Part of Fortune in Taurus has to do with logic. Look at what you know rather than what you feel. 

When you feel defeated, simply regroup and keep going. 

Be patient and work hard in the material world. Don’t get sucked into emotions but simply look at what is right in front of you. Look at what makes sense in a tangible way.

Make sure with Part in Fortune in Taurus that you stick to things you know. Reliable is always best; don’t gamble or take too many chances or you might loose everything.

Even though Part of Fortune in Taurus is about being steady, the universe can switch things up on you at any time. Try to stay fluid and go where the universal energy leads you, then work at a steady pace to move forward.

Part Of Fortune In Gemini:

With Part of Fortune in Gemini, you need to remain flexible. Don’t get bogged down in “sameness” but be open to the flow of life.

Get out there, talk to different people, learn different things, and look at the world from alternate perspectives. This is how you will figure out what the best next step is for you.

The most important thing with Part of Fortune in Gemini is to learn how to accept change. Through adaptation you will achieve success.

Always be on the lookout for new opportunities; you will achieve your goals slowly through a series of upward moves.

Additionally, you can find a lot of opportunities through networking with Part of Fortune in Gemini. 

Part Of Fortune In Cancer:

With Part of Fortune in Cancer, you need to use your emotional intuition to be successful. You just know when something feels right and when it will work, but you also know when you’re wasting your time.

Because Capricorn is the opposite of Cancer, you might be tempted to ignore your intuition and work hard to achieve your goals. While hard work is necessary, this will not work unless you also incorporate your intuition.

Nurturing is the key to happiness with Part of Fortune in Cancer.  Even straightforward work must be nurtured.

You may find success if you “birth” or create something, whether this is an idea, a business, a child, a home, etc. You feel called to create something that didn’t previously exist.
 
With Part of Fortune in Cancer, you can go after what you desire, but remember to stay connected and nurture your creations instead of forcing them to grow.
 

Part Of Fortune In Leo:

With Part of Fortune in Leo, you will achieve your goals when you cultivate generosity and optimism. You need to master what you want for yourself.

You can be a wonderful leader when you lead by example. Don’t preach but show.

Part of Fortune in Leo has a lot to do with creativity. You need to find your own personal creativity in everything that you do. Focus on topics that are meaningful to you.

To be successful with Part of Fortune in Leo, you must have a personal connection to the topic. You will not succeed if you remain emotionally disconnected. 

Give to people without expecting anything in return. Keeping tabs of gifting is a surefire way to never reach your goals.

Part of Fortune in Leo is all about generosity. When you give you will receive from the universe.

With Part of Fortune in Leo, you must always pour your heart into what you do and lead by example. If you’re able to do this, you will be quite successful and achieve your lifelong goals.

Part Of Fortune In Virgo:

With Part of Fortune in Virgo, you must keep things in order. Through hard work and attention to detail, you can achieve success over time.

You must learn to deal with small, day-to-day matters as they arise. Don’t put anything off. Learn to deal with problems logically and one at a time without feeling overwhelmed.

You need to create a daily lifestyle that is healthy with Part of Fortune in Virgo. You will find it very difficult to achieve success without some sort of daily routine.

Those with Part of Fortune in Virgo can also be sensitive to the energy of those around them. With the placement, you may need introspective time to destress.

It’s very important with Part of Fortune in Virgo that you don’t get sucked into identifying too strongly with others. Pull both and figure out what’s true for you.

Sometimes, you may experience rather strong, overwhelming emotions because of the Picean opposite. You don’t want to get lost in the current of emotions or you will find it hard to achieve what you desire.

Instead, learn to discern factually what is true from what is false. Focus on your own inner peace and your inner truth.

This always lies in careful discernment through logic, even if you must use logic to figure out how and why you feel your emotions.

Part Of Fortune In Libra:

If you have Part of Fortune in Libra, you find success through balance and harmony. It’s important that you have tolerance, especially towards others.

You should not be hasty in your decisions. It might be easy for you to swing towards the qualities of Aries, but this will not bring you true success.

You might want to “go it alone” but you will be most successful in partnerships, at least when you’re starting out. You need other people to bounce your ideals off of.

Part of Fortune in Libra is all about maintaining equilibirum. When you get out of balance, you will struggle to achieve your goals.

Cultivate diplomacy and grace. Focus on creating win-win situations with others and you will certainly achieve what you desire.

Most of all, with Part of Fortune in Libra, share with others. Care for those around you and allow them to care for you in return.

Learn to delegate and to share while still taking care of your own needs. It’s a balancing act!

Part Of Fortune In Scorpio:

With Part of Fortune in Scorpio, you find success by tapping into your intuition. 

The opposite sign of Scorpio is Taurus, so it may be easy for you to get bogged down in the material aspect of life. Be careful that you do not obsesses over status or achievement.

You can certainly use your Part of Fortune in Scorpio to become wealthy, as of course this is what most of us want (and probably why you’re reading this article), but this can’t be your main focus.

It is extremely important that you use your intuition. Don’t let yourself be deluded by material things in the world; the answers are already inside of you.

With Part of Fortune in Scorpio, you need to strip away the outer layers and get to the core. When you’re struggling to figure something out, try to get to the inner meaning of the thing.

You have a keen perception but you have to tap into your intuition to know what’s right.

Part of Fortune in Scorpio is all about unlocking your creativity. Allow yourself to be transformed emotionally instead of becoming trapped in the material world.

Sometimes, those with Part of Fortune in Scorpio can also find success through witchcraft or the occult, although this depends on other aspects in the chart.

Part Of Fortune In Sagittarius:

If you have Part of Fortune in Sagittarius, you will find that honest and directness are extremely important. 

The opposite of Sagittarius is Gemini, so you may have the inclination to lie your way out of things, but this will not help you achieve success in the long-term.

Part of Fortune in Sagittarius also means that you will be more successful if you try new things and experience different cultures. Some find fortune far from their homes while others simply find wealth in a field they never expected.

Be very careful of acting erratic or lying. These are Gemini qualities but they will not help you with Part of Fortune in Sagittarius. Instead of focusing on others, focus on your own truths that are already inside you and live by them.

Part Of Fortune In Capricorn:

Part of Fortune in Capricorn is all about perseverance. You may get bogged down in the emotions of a situation, but the road to success is found by focusing on the hard, cold facts rather than feelings.

You need to take responsibility for yourself with Part of Fortune in Capricorn. You won’t find success through anything but your own hard work.

Look at the facts, make a plan, and then follow it. Try to avoid getting too sensitive by things that others do or say and instead look at what you can do about it.

With Part of Fortune in Capricorn, negative emotions will drain you quickly. Figure out a way to rise above your emotions.

Don’t let fear and doubts interfere with you; keep pushing ahead and just do it! Part of Fortune in Capricorn is all about staying true to your path and focusing on your longterm goals.

Part Of Fortune In Aquarius:

With Part of Fortune in Aquarius, you are different from others in some way. Your natural inclination may be to hide this, but embracing your differences is the path to success.

If you swing towards the opposite spectrum which is Leo, you might try to be noticed. It’s easy for you to get wrapped up in the ego state of wanting power and recognition, but this not how you will actually achieve success.

To succeed with Part of Fortune in Aquarius, the work is to see being “different” as a neutral fact. You naturally do things unconventionally but you must learn to embrace this about yourself instead of trying to hide it.

Learn to revel in your own uniqueness. With Part of Fortune in Aquarius, you will come to recognize the special differences that others have over time, too.

It is when you think outside the box that you will be truly successful and reach your goals. Don’t be bound by convention and don’t be afraid of what others will say.

With Part of Fortune in Aquarius, detach from your need from approval and embrace you uniqueness to achieve your goals.

Part Of Fortune In Pisces:

With Part of Fortune in Pisces, you will achieve your goals when you detach from the outcome. 

Allow the energy of the universe to guide you to your destination. Learn to flow with the energy and where it takes you.

Your goals may change along the way with Part of Fortune in Pisces. Accept this as it comes and try to avoid manipulating or controlling things.

It’s also easy for those with Part of Fortune in Pisces to take things personally. Try to accept all that happens as energetic reactions instead of things happening to you.

You will reach your goals naturally if you flow with the energy of the universe. Try to let things manifest as they will and stay impersonal.

Part of Fortune in Pisces is all about learning during the process. When you focus on what you are learning rather than the outcome, you will reach that pot of gold much more quickly.

Chiron In Pisces: The Wound Of Faith

Chiron In Pisces: The Wound Of Faith

Chiron is known as the wounded healer in astrology. Even though he was able to heal others, he couldn’t treat his own injury. 

Your Chiron sign in astrology shows where you sustained your deepest wound. Chironic wounds can never be completely healed, but they can be worked with and transmuted for good.

Chiron in Pisces is an especially interesting placement because both Chiron and the sign of Pisces represent duality. There is a push-pull with this sign; you want to be “one” with the universe but also feel that you cannot be because of your human nature.

This duality also means that Chiron in Pisces manifests in one of two ways. Keep reading to find out which side of Chiron in Pisces you represent.

The Chiron In Pisces Wound

Chiron in Pisces is all about a loss of trust in the universe. With Chiron in Pisces, you don’t completely believe in the oneness of all that is.

In the first scenario, you have a deep fear of being hurt by the universe or the forces at play. You might feel that the world is unfair or merciless, or that you have been “left out to dry.”

Often, those with Chiron in Pisces have a sense of betrayal. You feel that the universe wasn’t there for you when you most needed the help. You may also feel a sense of victimization.

Chiron in Pisces has a lot to do with the idea of fate. Most individuals with Chiron in Pisces think, even subconsciously, that they were dealt an unfair hand in life.

If this is how you express your Chiron in Pisces sign then your biggest issue will be that you have emotionally disconnected. The pain you felt by this “rejection” from the universe overwhelmed you and you shut down.

Alternatively with Chiron in Pisces, you might feel like you’re not deserving of the energy of the universe. You probably feel the suffering of the world very deeply and find it easy to become stuck in your own suffering.

When someone feels pain, you feel it right alongside them. The pain of others is amplified but your own wounds are intensified, too. 

Even though you don’t victimize yourself in the traditional sense, you create a victim mentality by getting stuck in the pain of the world. You can’t understand why the universe is set up this way; you feel that the way of the world is unfair to you and to others.

Sometimes, someone with Chiron in Pisces can express qualities of both of these sides, but more often those with Chiron in Pisces tend to either fit into the first scenario or the second.

How The Chironic Wound Will Show Itself

With Chiron in Pisces, depending on how you experience your pain, you will react in one of two ways.

Firstly, you may develop a hard shell of cynicism. You don’t have much empathy for others because you feel that the world and the universe had no empathy for you.

When feelings threaten to overwhelm you, it’s easier for you to shut them out. You may be very avoidant of people and situations that bother your or you may engage in escapist behaviors such as drinking, doing drugs, or other addictive behaviors.

Alternatively, you identify with the underdog. You try to always rescue others and have immense sympathy for anyone in the smallest amount of pain.

You may feel overwhelmed by your empathy; it’s easy for you to wallow in your feelings. You can also become a martyr, even emotionally, and cause a lot of suffering to yourself and those around you because of your wild emotions.

Sometimes, with Chiron in Pisces, you even idealize the suffering that you feel while being simultaneously horrified by it. You have no energetic barrier so the energy of others seeps right into you and influences how you act.

Sometimes, those with Chiron in Pisces express a bit of both of these qualities or swing back and forth between extreme cynicism and empathy.

Where Does The Chiron In Pisces Wound Come From?

Your Chiron in Pisces was created at some point in the past when you needed something badly and didn’t get it. You felt like the universe let you down and believed that you weren’t important.

These negative feelings created a deep wound surrounding your connectedness to the universe and your importance in the world. You felt less important than others.

Sometimes, the Chiron in Pisces wound stems from a past life, but it often has some roots in your childhood during this life, too.

Maybe you felt insignificant to your parents in some way. Perhaps your parents didn’t notice your accomplishments. Often, people find that their parents didn’t acknowledge their specialness or see how they fit into the world.

Look to the house to see where you most experienced Chiron in Pisces.

If you became wounded with Chiron in Pisces during a past life, then the events of your childhood only solidified your belief that the universe doesn’t have your back and that you really don’t have a purpose in the way that others do.

How to Heal Chiron in Pisces

Typically with Chiron in Pisces, you want to run away from the wound. Pisces is all about escapism and this certainly applies with the Chiron in Pisces placement.

There is simply no way to heal the Chiron in Pisces wound without turning around and facing it head on. You may need to re-live past experiences and go through the pain rather than around it.

The goal is to figure out what is true and what is false. You have some false beliefs about the universe and about your place in the world.

You may think that the universe/God (or your version of God) isn’t on your side or that you have been left behind. You may feel unimportant. The goal is to confront these negative beliefs and dig into them in a logical way.

Figure out why some of these false beliefs aren’t true. This can be quite a lot of work and self-reflection but is always worth it in the end.

Black Moon Lilith Aspects In Synastry

Black Moon Lilith Aspects In Synastry

Black Moon Lilith aspects in synastry are some of the coolest placements. Whenever Lilith is around, you can expect to feel a wild, intense, deep, and sometimes obsessive energy. If you have Lilith aspects in synastry then this energy will show up in your relationship.

Lilith by herself is extremely transformative. She is all about the shadow side.

Whenever your Lilith touches one of your partner’s planets or vice-versa, you can expect to see your deepest fears revealed. You might also see glimpses of things you desire but can’t have.

Ultimately, Lilith aspects in synastry give both partners a chance to work on their shadow sides. Lilith reveals pieces of yourself that you didn’t know existed.

Lilith aspects can be uncomfortable, but without them, we wouldn’t be able to work through our most taboo issues.

Lilith Aspects In Synastry:

Depending on what planet Lilith is touching, Lilith aspects in synastry can bring up issues relating to sexuality and sexual energy, transformation, society and expectations, obsession, freedom, and all things taboo. 

When you have a strong Lilith aspect with your partner in the synastry chart, you experience a deep and magnetic attraction. It can feel dangerous or wild, but the energy is also alluring.

Because Black Moon Lilith is so sexual, you’ll definitely see a lot of Lilith aspects relating to sexuality. These aspects can be transformative for good or for bad. Lilith can also be really addictive; she has no boundaries.

Lilith is often known as the “home wrecker” (even though there is no basis for this claim in mythology) because when you meet someone with whom you share strong Lilith aspects, it’s almost impossible to stay even. It can be really destructive to meet someone with Lilith aspects when one is already in a committed relationship.

Most strong Lilith aspects create a intense sense of seduction, but the relationship can also feel erratic or unstable. 

Of course, we all have choices. Many of us choose not to act on our Lilith aspects, but not everything that Lilith touches is bad. She reveals the parts of ourselves that we have hidden away due to fear.

Through Lilith, we can connect with our authentic inner being. She helps us to to break free and face our fears.

90% of the time, Lilith aspects just aren’t enough to hold a relationship together. When you’re looking at a synastry chart, you will need to look for other supportive aspects in addition to Lilith aspects.

Most Lilith aspects won’t tell you if you’re “meant to be” or if you’ll stay together forever, but these aspects will show how you can create a healthier, happier relationship, and what issues you’re working on within the relationship.

Lilith conjunct Sun synastry:

Lilith conjunct sun is a relatively strong aspect in a synastry chart. This can be a really obsessive placement for both partners but can also be a relationship that is brimming with chemistry.

This Lilith conjunct sun synastry relationship has many main themes around Lilith. There’s a certain dark, taboo vibe that is central to the relationship.

At first, this aspect creates an irresistible attraction. Over time, the relationship will either blossom under the taboo qualities of Lilith or descend into obsession and anger.

Often, the sun person represents all that the Lilith person wants but can never quite “catch.” There is an illusive vibe to this relationship. The Lilith person may feel somewhat less-than or “bad.”

The Lilith conjunct sun synastry relationship will activate all of the Lilith person’s most Lilith-like qualities. Sometimes, the Lilith person doesn’t even know that they have these qualities within themselves before they meet the sun individual.

If Lilith is celebrated and the couple chooses to embrace these differences and taboos then this can be a really transformative and positive relationship. These two will never come across as a typical couple, but if they are able to accept themselves and celebrate Lilith then they can be quite happy together.

Lilith conjunct sun in synastry is a test for the Lilith person because their most taboo qualities such as obsession and anger will be activated, but it’s also a test for the sun person.

I typically see that the sun person feels this push-pull energy towards the Lilith person; they are deeply attracted to the Lilith individual but also want to run away from the obsession and possessiveness. 

The lesson is for the sun individual to stand their ground and follow their inner voice. Lilith is neither good nor bad, and the sun person can share in some of the Lilith partner’s activities without merging.

This Lilith conjunct sun synastry aspect is always transformative because it brings Lilith to light. It allows the Lilith person to learn, in real time, how to celebrate Lilith instead of descending into obsession and rage.

There is a tendency for this couple to attach too much importance to sex. They might also have a need to control or rebel against each other, although this is not always the case, especially if Lilith is transmuted by both partners.

Lilith conjunct Moon synastry:

With the Lilith conjunct moon synastry placement, the Lilith person often triggers the moon person’s emotional wounds. The moon person is attracted to the Lilith person but can quickly feel afraid or unsafe.

This placement stirs up a lot of feelings for both people. There is a deep emotional attachment, but Lilith conjunct moon can also bring out negative, hidden emotions from each partner.

Mainly, this placement is almost guaranteed to bring up issues with the mother figure. These issues typically come up for the moon individual as they “relive” their mother trauma with the Lilith individual, although the opposite is possible as well.

The moon person can feel somewhat “bewitched” by the Lilith person. This energy is very subtle and is often subconscious, but it can run the relationship before either partner is aware of what’s happening.

Regardless, there will be a lot of emotional depth in this relationship. There is the potential for the Lilith conjunct moon synastry relationship to be extremely transformative if both people are evolved enough to work through their emotions. It will bring up all of the difficult feelings that are unresolved within each person.

Lilith conjunct moon pulls all of those negative, subconscious emotions to the surface. This type of relationship is sometimes necessary to bring all emotional wounds out of the dark.

Sometimes, if there are other aspects to support it, the Lilith conjunct moon aspect can indicate emotional obsession, though this is only in the most extreme examples. More likely, the aspect indicates a lot of emotional turmoil, similar to the Tower card in Tarot.

The moon individual almost always feels uncomfortable in this relationship because of what the Lilith person represents, but this is a perfect chance for the moon individual to look at these feelings and dig into them on a personal level.

There is also a tendency for the Lilith person to bulldoze over the moon person. For this relationship to be successful, the Lilith individual will need to learn to hold back and allow the moon person time and space to deal with their emotions.

Lilith conjunct Mercury synastry:

The Lilith conjunct Mercury synastry aspect means that one person typically feels shame about how the other partner thinks or communicates. Either partner might feel shame; sometimes both do simultaneously.

Even though something about the Mercury person’s mind attracts the Lilith person, they might also find it constricting at the same time. Simultaneously, the Mercury person may feel put off by the Lilith individual’s approach to sex.

Within the context of a sexual relationship, dirty talk is quite likely to occur with the Lilith conjunct Mercury synastry aspect.

The Lilith conjunct Mercury synastry aspect creates a bit of a catch-22 in relationships. The mind is a turn-on, but one or both partners are also embarrassed by the other person’s mind at certain times. They feel an attraction to the way their partner thinks yet they also want to escape it.

This Lilith conjunct Mercury synastry aspect can also indicate difficulty communicating or mind games.

If the couple truly wants to progress and deal with their own issues surrounding Lilith (as this relationship is simply reflecting their own issues back at them) then couples therapy can be beneficial. The couple needs to learn new communication patterns before the relationship will feel completely safe.

Lilith conjunct Venus synastry:

The Lilith conjunct Venus synastry aspect is always very intense, like any other Lilith aspect. I find that it’s most applicable in romantic relationships and might not even make an impact in other relationships since Lilith conjunct Venus is inherently romantic.

There is typically a lot of physical attraction with Lilith conjunct Venus in synastry. The Venus person becomes especially attached to the Lilith person; it can be hard for the Venus person to separate from the relationship as time goes on.

There is a palpable, intense attraction that never seems to go away. If the relationship turns sour, it might be the type that drags on and on with no clear reason.

Typically, the Lilith person in the relationship tries to maintain their independence while the Venus person wants more. There is almost always an imbalance. It’s almost as if the Venus individual is under a spell.

I find that there’s often something about this relationship that is taboo or secret. For example, the partners may have a large age difference, a huge difference in class, be from different parts of the world, etc. Even if others know about the relationship, it always feels a bit unbalanced to the partners. 

The initial spark is extremely strong with the Lilith conjunct Venus synastry relationship, but it can quickly turn to obsession. The Venus person gets trapped under the spell of romance and the Lilith individual may rebel against this by acting out. This likely will not dissuade the Venus individual because they are simply captivated.

The Lilith person usually enjoys the attention of the Venus person (romance, physical affection, etc.) but does not return this affection equally. The Venus person can’t stay away no matter how hard they try, even though they aren’t getting what they need. The Lilith individual may also feel that the relationship isn’t right, but can’t quite leave.

It’s not often that these relationships work out, but if other aspects in the chart support it then it is possible. Both parties need to work on clear communication and setting boundaries and expectations. 

There is an air of mystery surrounding the Lilith conjunct Venus relationship that needs to be dissipated in order to truly work on the relationship.

Lilith conjunct Mars synastry:

The Lilith conjunct Mars synastry aspect means that this relationship is made up of two fighters. This isn’t always a bad thing, however. This relationship can be really passionate, fiery, and exciting.

The Lilith person might have trouble with issues surrounding desirability. Often with Lilith conjunct Mars in synastry, the Lilith individual’s self-esteem is tied up with how desirable he/she is in the eyes of the Mars partner.

If this relationship is played out sexually then both individuals experience a fiery, passionate sex life, although the Mars person might be slightly more content. The Lilith individual may feel that the sex is good but there’s some element of fire or taboo that’s simply missing.

Sometimes, the Lilith person can feel like the Mars person dominates the relationship simply because they allow them too. The Lilith person feels the unconscious need to allow the Mars person to make decisions but then may be secretly upset.

The Mars individual is probably a bit afraid of the Lilith individual in some way. I find that the Lilith person is often fiery when angry, while can scare the Mars person, but the Lilith person is instead afraid of losing the Mars individual.

Additionally, Lilith will almost always bring out anger in the Mars person that they didn’t know excited. This can scare the Mars person as they see a new side of themselves.

At it’s worst, the Lilith conjunct Mars synastry relationship has the potential for verbal abuse, explosive fights, physical violence, and general aggression. Of course, this is not always the case. Most likely, the Lilith person will end up feeling jealous or sexually frustrated which creates pent up feelings of rage.

Regardless of how the Lilith conjunct Mars synastry relationship manifests, this relationship will always be full of energy. There are usually power struggles as well, although both people can overcome this with a bit of work.

Communication is extremely important for this couple. Before things spiral out of control, it’s almost always necessary for the Lilith conjunct Mars in synastry couple to try couples’ therapy or some other intervention that will teach them skills they simply don’t have.

At it’s best, this relationship is full of healthy competition and passion.

Lilith conjunct Jupiter synastry:

When you have the Lilith conjunct Jupiter synastry aspect, Lilith is magnified. Jupiter expands anything that it touches, so there is a distinct sexual energy to the relationship, especially at first.

The Lilith person may feel the effects of this sexual magnification more than the Jupiter person because it is their own sexuality that is being expanded. 

In turn, the Lilith partner challenges the Jupiter partners beliefs. Lilith conjunct Jupiter in synastry doesn’t necessarily mean that both partners believe the same things, but it is a wonderful aspect if you want to transform your beliefs. 

The Jupiter partner pushes against the beliefs of the Lilith partner to expand their own knowledge and faith. This can be in any area, including spirituality, religion, philosophy, science, world-views, etc.

Even though the Jupiter conjunct Lilith synastry aspect feels very sexual at first, it’s actually all about beliefs, morals, ethics, and wisdom as time goes on. It really is an aspect relating to the mind and abstract thought. Expect there to be a lot of self-discovery in this relationship.

For example, the Jupiter individual might come into the relationship with a religious view of life. Through learning about the Lilith individual’s beliefs (let’s say they center around science, for the purpose of this example), the Jupiter person is pushed to question their own assumptions, confront their opinions of the taboos that the Lilith person presents, and develop their personal view on these topics.

This is just an example; the same situation can happen relating to any of these “bigger” topics. I recently saw this happen with a couple (who have the Lilith conjunct Jupiter synastry aspect) regarding politics.

Because Lilith is generally taboo, the Jupiter person often believes that the Lilith person’s thoughts and opinions are “bad,” at least at first. It is only through learning about the other that they come to realize they rejected these sort of beliefs simply out of fear.

The Lilith conjunct Jupiter synastry aspect is a great placement to have, if you’re up for doing self-work. It’s a super educational aspect that will bring a lot of good to the relationship and to both people individually.

Sometimes, the differences are too great and the partners have to separate, but there is still a good amount learned from the Lilith conjunct Jupiter synastry aspect.

Lilith conjunct Saturn synastry:

The Lilith conjunct Saturn synastry aspect can be dark and difficult. Saturn is all about structure and order, while Lilith is freedom and taboos.

In the beginning, there is a dark and deep sexual attraction. The relationship is not only “out of bounds,” as Lilith relationships often are, but also has quite a bit to do with karma. Both partners will feel the effects of this.

The purpose of the Lilith conjunct Saturn synastry aspect is to show the Saturn person where and how they are too rigid. This aspect will ideally teach the Saturn partner how to bend and why loosening up isn’t a bad thing.

In turn, the Saturn partner can teach the Lilith person that sometimes control is good. In the area of this conjunction, the Lilith person is fearful of their freedom being limited. This is exact with that Saturn individual will automatically do, which can cause problems, but this dynamic can also teach the Lilith individual that structure can be a good thing.

At its worst, this aspect can make for a horrific relationship experience. The Saturn person becomes more and more fearful as they are unable to get a handle on the relationship and on the Lilith partner. They might feel like their life is spinning out of control; they will do anything to get it back.

Meanwhile, the Lilith partner rebels against any and all control that the Saturn partner tries to exert. They feel this fear descending and push back against it, prompting the Saturn partner to become even more angry and afraid.

This Lilith conjunct Saturn synastry aspect is a heavy one, but it can certainly help both partners to work through necessary karma and come out stronger on the other side.

Lilith conjunct Uranus synastry:

Lilith conjunct Uranus in synastry typically means that the Lilith person unlocks a new side to the Uranus person. This is a side of themselves that they can’t show in society for some reason, but they can be themselves in this way with the Lilith individual.

Sometimes, this may mean that Lilith brings out Uranus’ inner rebel, but it can also mean that the Uranus person is allowed to show a different piece of themselves that may be soft, angry, competitive, nurturing, or any other quality, depending on the individual chart.

There is an instant attraction with the Lilith conjunct Uranus synastry aspect. The couple will literally see sparks fly. As the relationship progresses, the couple may feel that they can do anything together, but there can also be a taboo edge to the relationship because it feels so different from societal norms.

Uranus may in turn teach the Lilith person to let go of past situations that no longer further their evolution. The Lilith person has a tendency to hold onto past hurts in this area, but the Uranus person can help them to see another way.

If there are other negative aspects influencing this Lilith conjunct Uranus synastry aspect, then the relationship may turn too free. There may be some taboos around freedom and monogamy or hurt and anger surrounding the relationship.

Alternatively, the Uranus person may desire what the Lilith person offers but also be afraid of the intensity they bring.

Lilith conjunct Neptune synastry:

The Lilith conjunct Neptune synastry aspect can create a lot of illusion in a relationship. When these partners first meet, it might feel like a dream within a dream.

I find that there is often some psychic connection between the Lilith conjunct Neptune partners, but there can also be a lot of false illusion. It might be difficult for both people to see what’s real and what’s false, especially within the relationship.

There is often something slightly taboo about this relationship, but it’s more illusive than other Lilith aspects. For example, the partners may have grown up as cousins but are not technically related, or there may be an age gap that “looks” bad to others but is actually not that large.

Lilith conjunct Neptune in synastry is not a very angry aspect. Instead, the danger is that both partners will forget to live in the real world because they are so enthralled by their relationship and the feelings that they get from it.

The Lilith conjunct Neptune synastry relationship reveals all of the darkest desires. Sometimes, these will feel more like addictions. There is a danger of the partners becoming addicted to each other or to the relationship, but they can also be addicted to substances; this addiction may be fueled through the relationship in some way.

The goal with the Lilith conjunct Neptune synastry aspect is to embrace the psychic, sensitive side of the relationship while remaining grounded.

Lilith conjunct Pluto synastry:

The Lilith conjunct Pluto synastry aspect is extremely intense and karmic. This aspect is either wonderfully transformative or terribly dangerous.

There is always a strong attraction between this couple. Both the Lilith individual and the Pluto person show their dark sides in this relationship. This chemistry is both in and out of bed.

If this couple is able to learn from each other and understand this mutual energy then the relationship can be transformative for the better. It is a difficult process and won’t just come naturally.

Sometimes, power and destruction overtake the relationship and cause major problems. This relationship can easily turn angry or violent. The Lilith conjunct Pluto synastry couple may find themselves plagued by arguments and the need to release pent up rage.

One or both of the Lilith conjunct Pluto partners can become manipulative, erratic, or possessive. This can be the makings of a really nasty breakup. If this happens, it’s likely that the Pluto person will hold a grudge for a long time.

Sometimes, Lilith conjunct Pluto synastry aspects can indicate affairs. It is often the Lilith person who would have affairs, though not always. This is only the case if other aspects in the chart support it.

Lilith can learn about truth and honest from Pluto and Pluto can learn about equality and respect from Lilith. While Lilith tends to flake out when things get hard, Pluto becomes obsessive or hurt. They can each learn from each other and find a middle ground to heal.

For this Lilith conjunct Pluto synastry relationship to work, each partner needs to make a clear effort to acknowledge the needs of the other. Couples’ therapy can be very helpful to heal this relationship.

Lilith conjunct Ascendant synastry:

The Lilith conjunct ascendant synastry conjunction causes a strong, immediate attraction between both people. There is a magnetic energy between the couple from the first moment they meet.

The Lilith person in particular is attracted to the ascendant partner’s looks, body, and general physicality. They will definitely feel the sexual tension.

This Lilith conjunct ascendant synastry relationship is often very public at first. Both partners might be physical and showy around others, or they might just be in the limelight in some way. This typically dies down after some time, since the Lilith conjunct ascendant synastry aspect is strongest upon first meeting.

The relationship can also be a bit taboo at first. I often see those with the Lilith conjunct ascendant synastry aspect have difficulty introducing their partner to their family and friends. There may be something taboo about their choice or even about the relationship’s energy. Again, this dissipates over time.

The Lilith conjunct ascendant relationship often feels forbidden, even if it’s not. One or both of the partners typically feel guilty about entering into a relationship; they may still be attached to an ex partner or even a past life experience that they can’t completely let go of.

Typically, the ascendant person is both intimidated by and attracted to the Lilith partner. They might see the Lilith person as a bit dark or scary, but they’re also intrigued by the energy. It probably is different from anything the ascendant person has seen before.

The relationship is extremely primal at first. This is probably different and maybe frightening for the ascendant individual.

However, the ascendant person has a lot of the same subconscious impulses as the Lilith person, they have just not accessed them yet. This new relationship is frightening because the Lilith person pulls out a new side of the ascendant person in a very public way.

This Lilith conjunct ascendant aspect is tricky to navigate, especially in the beginning stages of relationship, but it doesn’t dictate whether or not a relationship will be successful in the long term. Shadow sides have a lot of impact on this relationship, but this can also be a great opportunity for both partners to heal themselves from the inside.

Lilith conjunct Descendant synastry:

The Lilith conjunct descendant synastry aspect means that the descendant partner is especially attracted to the dark side in the Lilith partner. They represent much of what the descendant person wants in a partner, but these qualities show up in a taboo, mysterious way.

The Lilith partner might find their most taboo qualities showing up around the descendant partner. Lilith conjunct descendent in synastry really brings out those taboo qualities within the Lilith partner. The descendent person might either like these qualities, be afraid of them, or both.

Sometimes, the Lilith conjunct descendant synastry aspect can also mean that the descendent partner has blocked their own sexuality, so they look for a partner who is more sexual to compensate. This is not always the case with the Lilith conjunct descendant aspect; it shows up about half of the time.

Lilith conjunct Midheaven synastry:

The Lilith conjunct Midheaven synastry aspect often means that there is something taboo about the relationship, especially concerning public image. 

One person may desire something from the other or look up to the other when it comes to image. Typically, the Lilith person looks up to the Midheaven person, but not always.

For example, the Midheaven person may be quite wealthy or prestigious, so the Lilith person is unable to separate the individual from their own desires to obtain money or status.

Lilith conjunct Midheaven in synastry can also mean that one or both people have a deep obsession with having a certain image. The specifics of this will depend on the sign that the Lilith conjunct Midheaven sits in.

Alternatively, there may be something taboo about the public image that the couple creates together. For example, the couple could work in adult entertainment together.

Lilith conjunct IC synastry:

The Lilith conjunct IC synastry aspect means that the relationship brings out the dark side of the IC person. This isn’t necessarily bad; it’s simply the side of themselves that they felt they had to hide in childhood. 

The relationship can also reveal the IC person’s raw sexuality that they didn’t feel as a child.

In general, the Lilith individual helps the IC person to access those forbidden parts of themself that they locked away in childhood. That is, of course, when this relationship is healthy and between two consenting adults.

The Lilith conjunct IC synastry aspect works well if and only if neither party is obsessive or overpowering towards the other.

If there are power imbalances in the Lilith conjunct IC synastry relationship, it can mean that one person treats the other like a child and forces them into taboo situations that they might not enjoy. At its worst, the Lilith conjunct IC synastry aspect indicates sexual abuse.

Lilith conjunct North Node synastry:

The Lilith conjunct North Node synastry aspect means that both partners recognize each other from a past life. This is a fated relationship, in a way.

As soon as it begins, this relationship can be really intense. There are many issues from the Lilith conjunct North Node synastry couple to get through, but there is potential for a lovely relationship if they’re able to effectively do the work.

This Lilith conjunct North Node synastry relationship instantly pushes both partners to grow. This can be quite unpleasant, even though it’s technically for the good of both.

The North Node person will especially have trouble and may quickly fall back into old habits, even those of past lifetimes when the couple was previously together.

This North Node individual might conceal aspects of the relationship or hide the whole relationship all-together. They are the one who is more inclined to lying and betrayal, while the Lilith individual is more likely to become obsessive and hang on no matter what.

This is because the North Node individual is being pushed by Lilith to move towards the Node, but this can be very hard to do, especially when someone like Lilith is involved. It’s easy for the North Node person to get scared and retreat.

In general, the Lilith conjunct Node Node synastry relationship is permeated by Lilith. It can be hard for both people to stick it out when they’re constantly confronted by Lilith qualities.

There is an addictive quality to this relationship. Even though both people might retreat at times, it’s difficult to completely separate. 

With the Lilith conjunct North Node synastry aspect, the issue is often that neither person has effectively worked on their shadow self and healed their inner child. This is a karmic reminder from the Universe that this work must be done.

The sign and house that the Lilith conjunct North Node synastry aspect sits in will show where and how each person must work through issues relating to the shadow self.

The couple can choose to do this work together and remain in the relationship, or they may need to split apart and do this work individually if the relationship becomes too toxic.

Lilith conjunct South Node synastry:

The Lilith conjunct South Node synastry aspect reveals a past life connection with Lilith themes. The couple may have experiences sexuality, controversy, taboos, psychological distress, or other Lilith type things in a past life.

Generally, these two were either enemies in this past life or not allowed to be together. These taboo themes (of forbidden fruit or hatred) carry forward into the current lifetime with the Lilith conjunct South Node synastry aspect.

It’s very easy for both partners to fall back into old patterns with this aspect. There is a deep karmic bond between them and a lot of history, so they can trigger each other’s dark sides.

The goal with Lilith conjunct South Node is not to fall but into old patterns but to transcend them. This relationship is karmic, yet the purpose is to learn to love each other and to release the negative aspect of Lilith themes.

If the partners were enemies in a past life then that wound must be healed between them. If their relationship was forbidden or taboo, the goal is to be unapologetically themselves this time around.

The attraction with the Lilith conjunct South Node synastry aspect is often very strong and will last through time.

Lilith conjunct Chiron synastry:

With Lilith conjunct Chiron in synastry, the Lilith person will continually trigger the Chiron’s person’s wound by expressing “taboo” qualities in the sign that Lilith is in.

In some way, the Lilith person’s wild side reminds the Chiron person of their wound and how they were wounded.

The Lilith conjunct Chiron synastry aspect can be a difficult, painful placement for both people (especially the Chiron individual), but it is also an opportunity for the Chiron person to heal.

While the Lilith conjunct Chiron synastry aspect isn’t necessarily the seal of death for a relationship, it does mean that both individuals will need to put in a great deal of work to have a successful and happy partnership.

Lilith conjunct Juno synastry:

With Lilith conjunct Juno in the synastry chart, the Juno person probably finds some of the Lilith person’s traits alluring, at least in the beginning.

The Juno individual sees some of the qualities that they want in a long term relationship within the Lilith individual, however these qualities all have a slightly darker hue than the Juno person really wants.

Because of this, once the initial magnetic attraction has faded, the Lilith person can quickly become overwhelming for the Juno individual. Long term, this can grow into a larger problem.

For example, the Juno individual might want a marriage that is based on spirituality and kindness. While the Lilith person has these qualities, they might also be a bit delusional or have an addictive nature.

Ideally, the couple is able to work with these differences and find common ground. The Lilith person has much darker energy than the Juno individual (in the area of the sign and house that the Lilith conjunct Juno synastry conjunction sits in) but there may be some common ground that can hold the relationship together.

Lilith conjunct Ceres synastry:

A Lilith conjunct Ceres synastry relationship will have taboo elements around the idea of mothering. If you’re in a Lilith conjunct Ceres relationship, you may want to feel cared for or mothered, or you may instead want to feel needed as a mother would.

There may be an obsession with being cared for or caring for others that can feel intense and slightly taboo with the Lilith conjunct Ceres synastry aspect. 

At its best, this aspect allows both partners to learn how to care for themselves and each other in different, more effective ways. They might realize that the way they “mothered” themselves isn’t working and that their partner can show them a better way.

At its worst, the Lilith conjunct Ceres synastry aspect means that one or both of the partners will become overly needy, reliant, codependent, or controlling.

Lilith conjunct Vesta synastry:

The Lilith conjunct Vesta synastry aspect is an anomaly. There is a feeling of pure, fated love between the couple, but there’s also something taboo about the relationship.

With Lilith conjunct Vesta, both partners are probably very devoted to each other, if the rest of the chart supports this. They might have known that they were meant for each other at a young age or as soon as they met. Alternatively, they’re both devoted to something else (such as religion, science, a hobby, an activity, a cause, etc.) and work together in their passion for it.

Although the energy between the Lilith conjunct Vesta synastry couple is pure, there is also a sense that they shouldn’t be together. Maybe their relationship is banned by society or by the church, or maybe they bonded over something taboo.

The difficulty for this Lilith conjunct Vesta synastry couple is to reconcile what they feel (pure, sacred love) with what society says about their relationship (that it is taboo or forbidden).

Sex between this couple can be incredible. There is a sort of hyper-awareness between each person. The sexual act can feel very ritualistic, important, or even spiritual with the Lilith conjunct Vesta synastry couple.

Alternatively, there is a dark side to this aspect. Lilith conjunct Vesta can also mean that one partner, usually the Lilith person, is obsessed with the idea of purity and virginity. This may be what attracts them to the Vesta person.

At its worst, this relationship can be based around a terrible power imbalance. This is not always the case; most couples fit into only one of these Lilith conjunct Vesta synastry archetypes. 

Lilith conjunct Lilith synastry:

While the Lilith conjunct Lilith synastry aspect isn’t powerful enough to keep a relationship going without other aspects, it does create a strong initial attraction.

Lilith conjunct Lilith means that both people see pieces of their own Lilith in the other. It’s like looking into a mirror.

This can mean that each partner sees the positive sides to Lilith in the other, especially those that aren’t accepted in society. This can be really helpful because the relationship might become a safe place to express these qualities, since both people have them.

Alternatively, each partner may see bits of the worst of their own Lilith in the other person. These will be the qualities that they each want to run from, but they’re confronted with these “taboo” pieces of Lilith face to face in the relationship.

I find that Lilith conjunct Lilith in synastry can be really helpful if used properly. It allows both partners to grow and to face their own demons.

If both people aren’t able to make use of this and do self work within the context of the relationship then it can escalate to become a pretty nasty, difficult partnership. Each will start hating those Lilith qualities in the other and might eventually only see those qualities, especially if there aren’t other strong aspects to hold the relationship together.

Earth Sign Astrology | Earth Signs vs. Sun Signs In The Birth Chart

Earth Sign Astrology | Earth Signs vs. Sun Signs In The Birth Chart

In astrology we discuss the sun signs, which represents the ego or the outer personality—but what astrologers often fail to mention is the existence of the inner child, the earth signs.

In earth sign astrology, the earth sign is the mirror image of the sun sign—it is everything we are on the inside that makes us develop into our sun sign.

You may notice that as a child, you were more your earth sign than you were your sun sign. Your earth sign rules your inner self—the deepest and most hurt parts of you, and this is the inner child that the sun sign tries to protect.

In psychology we discuss the inner child often. Inner child work is key to understanding the outer psyche, but what we don’t discuss is how our inner children often differ, and how some peoples are more protected than others.

Remember that if you have other placements in the same sign, or conjunct to your earth sign, your inner child is going to be more prevalent and less protected in your personality. If your earth sign stands alone in your chart, then it is likely that only you know about it—and you protect it at all costs.

It is important to remember that earth signs are in the same degrees as sun signs, but in the opposite sign. This is similar to the ascendant and descendant, which represent how you appear to the world and what you expect from others, the midheaven and IC which represent the public self and the childhood stressors, and the north and south node, which represent the past and future selves.

Similar to these polarities, when looking at earth sign astrology, the earth signs and the sun signs show the inner children and the adult egos that develop to protect these children.

Earth Signs In The Signs:

Here are all 12 earth signs through the signs of the zodiac. Remember that each of these earth signs sits in the opposite sign from the person’s sun.

Aries Earth Sign

If you have your sun in Libra, that means that your earth sign is in Aries in the opposite house from where your sun is.

In earth sign astrology, having an Aries earth sign means that your inner child is rambunctious, energetic, and wild. As a child, you likely had an un-tamable mentality, liked sports and games, and were often immature and selfish.

Aries earth sign children are the ones who, when they dislike the way the game is going, take their ball and walk away so that the other children cannot play anymore. They like things to be their way, and will not settle for less—especially in early childhood.

They were the boss of their friend groups and often did not develop emotionally until later on. They love sports and competitive activities, but care less about winning than they do attention and glory.

As they develop into adulthood, Aries earth sign people likely still feel this way on the inside. Aries earth signs might have a hard time empathizing with people in the real world, and still want things to be the way they want them.

This often caused them pain in childhood, as people would have viewed them as selfish and unmanageable. This kind of pain caused the Aries earth sign to “other” this part of themselves and become more Libran on the outside.

The Libra Adult

The Aries earth sign developed Libran qualities of peaceableness, acceptance, and tolerance to help temper their true Arian nature.

Aries earth sign people become more easy-going, relaxed, and often struggle with decision making because they do not want to come across as overbearing or hostile, the way they did in childhood.

However, the inner child is the true nature—the Aries earth sign inner child still longs to be let out to play every once in a while, so it is important to let them have their turn calling the shots and making decisions.

Taurus Earth Sign

If your sun is in Scorpio, this means that you have a Taurus earth sign in the same degree, but the opposite house.

In Earth sign astrology, the Taurus earth sign child is stubborn, fixed and rigid. They like their home life, probably hate going to school and leaving their home, and don’t want to make too many friends.

The Taurus earth sign is extremely loyal to the family and friends that they do have, but they have a difficult time in disagreements because they cannot admit their wrongdoings, especially as a young child.

The Taurus earth sign child is not very emotionally developed in youth, but they have a strong sense of morality and can often be judgmental to others when they lapse in morals. As they mature, they develop rapidly emotionally, and use this sensitive side to protect their inner child, which may still be judgmental, though the adult would never show it.

They are rigid and not at all easy-going. These children find one thing that they like to play with, and this becomes their favorite thing. They are the same throughout childhood, never really changing their identity or experimenting with new things.

This is the kind of child that, if they did not want to go somewhere in the first place, they will not leave the car and go in—and would rather throw a fit than do what others want. As the Taurus earth sign develops into the Scorpio adult, they are less rigid, although they likely still have that inner part of them that does not want to go.

Most importantly, the Taurus earth sign child is very vain. They likely judge themselves and others based on looks and possessions. Who has the best toys, is the best at sports, and has the most friends, is very important to this person. This can lead to feelings of inadequacy in the Taurus earth sign child as they begin to feel like they don’t add up in these areas.

The Taurus child often felt stuck in their life due to their home-bound nature and this caused them significant pain. As an adult, the Scorpio sun will look for thrilling experiences that take them out of the comfort zone as a means to push back against their nature.

The Scorpio Adult:

The Scorpio sun person may struggle with vanity issues in life, although they are much kinder to others than they are to themselves. The judgments they made in childhood may follow them into adulthood, as the Taurus earth sign inner child tells them that they are still not good enough.

This may lead the Scorpio sun to seek validation through sex, aggression, exercise, and anger. It is important that after these experiences, the Scorpio sun person can retreat back into their inner child and have some alone time.

Gemini Earth Sign

In earth sign astrology, having a Sagittarius sun means that you have the earth sign in Gemini in the opposite house, but the same degree.

The Gemini earth sign child is very playful, easy-going, and talkative. They are chatty with strangers, and probably developed language skills very early in childhood. Every person they encounter, they care deeply for—they see all people as valuable and necessary.

As a child, they may have been scolded for “talking too much,” and people may have found them annoying to be around. This energy translated into developing the Sagittarius sun, which protects them from those people who did not care about them in return.

The Gemini earth sign child was open and vulnerable to the world, believing that If they could just be nice to everyone then the world would be a better place. They picked up on the art of small talk, and were likely nice to everyone at school, making them well liked in many instances.

However, as they got older, this chatty nature made them less liked. As things began to get complicated and cliques began to form, the Gemini earth sign child did not know where they fit, so they became somewhat of a drifter and began to develop the qualities of the Sagittarius adult.

The Sagittarius adult protects this inner Gemini earth sign child by focusing on the big picture rather than each unique conversation with the individual.

The Gemini earth sign inner child is so enthralled and vulnerable to the world that they make every conversation the most important one they ever had, and cannot take anything with a grain of salt.

The Sagittarius Adult:

As an adult, the Sagittarius sun person only takes what works for them. They rarely rely on other people’s information or opinions, though they are open to hearing them all. The Sagittarius sun person focuses on the greater meaning of things rather than each single person, which helps their Gemini earth sign inner child to not be so hurt by the things people say.

It is important for the Sagittarius adult to not cut out their inner child too much—the Gemini earth sign inner child gives them compassion for the world around them, and is the fundamental reason that they are the way they are.

Cancer Earth Sign

When the sun is in Capricorn, that indicates that the earth sign is in Cancer in the same degrees, but the opposite house.

In earth sign astrology, the cancer earth sign child is extremely sensitive to the world around them. They likely empathize with everyone and everything including animals, other families, and even their own parents.

The Cancer earth sign child has the rare capability of parenting in early childhood—meaning that they may provide support to siblings or even parents or caretakers. People often perceive this Cancer earth sign child as “too soft and sensitive,” as they cry over a lot of things and can be very hurt by the world.

Cancer earth signs likely preferred home life to school, as they found other children mean and abrasive. The Cancer earth sign child was incapable of deciphering whether something was true or not, so when someone said something mean to them, they believed it wholeheartedly and took it to heart.

The Capricorn Sun:

The Capricorn sun adult attempts to objectively look at the world and see whether people are good or bad. They protect the sensitive inner child earth signs by providing a tough exterior, staying strong in the face of hurt, and providing structure so that they do not “over-give”.

The Capricorn adult likely still feels like the Cancer earth sign on the inside—and when they begin to feel over-sensitive, they attempt to go back to the cold and stoic nature of the Capricorn to protect the inner child from those distressing feelings.

What the ego doesn’t understand is that the inner child is affected, regardless of how cold and stoic the Capricorn sun is in the face of adversity. The child still feels all the pain and hurt, so rather than protecting the child by remaining cold to the world, the Capricorn sun should attempt to find ways to soothe the child and help it to deal with those emotions.

The Cancer earth sign inner child is one of the most difficult placements to have, as it represents the softness and vulnerability that comes with childhood, while the Capricorn sun represents the outer layer of protection developed in adulthood.

Leo Earth Sign

People with their suns in Aquarius also have their earth signs in Leo in exact degrees, but in the opposite house.

The Leo earth sign child is playful, excited, dramatic, and indulgent in life. They may want to be the star of their family, or innately feel like they are the star. They crave love and attention at an early age, but it is likely that this is the cause of their pain—leading them to become more Aquarian in nature.

In earth sign astrology, the Leo earth sign represents a very playful and outgoing child. They were cheerful, fun, and adventurous— and were very independent from a young age.

They did not need a lot from the people around them to feel important—the Leo earth sign child knew they were important regardless of what others thought.

The Leo earth sign focused a lot on personal relationships. They put everything they had into their relationship with their parents, their siblings, and their very close friends, and unfortunately, this kind of love and adoration was not always returned.

The Leo earth sign child looked at their parents as superheroes, and when the parents did not live up to this expectation, the Leo earth sign child was extremely hurt. It is likely that with this placement, there was some kind of wealth or status issue in the child’s early life which led to a lot of pain and heartache.

Ultimately, the Leo inner child gave their love, compassion, and admiration to many people that did not return the favor. This caused great pain in their life, which led them to develop more detached “Aquarian” qualities.

The Aquarius Adult:

The Aquarius suns attempt to protect their earth signs, or inner children, by remaining detached from relationships and loved ones, and focusing less on intimate bonds and more on objective experiences.

The Aquarius adult feels that getting too close to someone, and relying on them too much, may only lead to pain and anguish.

However, on the inside, they still feel these feelings when someone does not return the love they know they deserve. The Aquarius adult protects the inner child by trying to look at things objectively rather than emotionally, but often to no avail as the inner child is still hurt by the world around them.

Virgo Earth Sign

Pisces sun people have their earth signs in Virgo in the same degrees, but the opposite house.

In earth sign astrology, the Virgo earth sign person likely grew up in a very rigid or judgmental household. The rules of the world mattered a lot and there was a great focus on perfection and living up to the expectations of the parent—which the child never felt they could accomplish.

The Virgo earth sign child probably struggled with self-image as a child and could be extremely judgmental and critical of themselves and others. Virgo earth signs are likely to notice the smallest details about people, and, especially in childhood, they point out these details.

While this overly critical nature is something they learned through their life experiences and from their parents, it does not bode well with peers and friends. This judgmental attitude leads to wounding in the Virgo earth sign child as people begin to shun them and turn away from them for being unkind—even if the Virgo earth signs believed they were helping.

The Virgo earth sign inner child is also very judgmental of themselves (as well as of others) because of this perceptive nature. They learn to despise themselves for rather insignificant details and they believe that anything less than perfection is unacceptable.

As life goes on, this attitude causes Virgo earth signs nothing but pain—they have to learn to embrace a more Piscean outlook to protect themselves.

The Pisces Adult

As the Virgo earth sign child develops into the Pisces sun adult, they begin to put a shield over this nature. This shield develops into empathy and kindness; they start to focus less on the rigid details of life and more on the bigger picture.

Deep down, the inner Virgo earth sign child still exists. The Pisces sun person may find themselves being overly judgmental and critical of people around them, only to reel back in their true nature and cover it with a mask of acceptance and approval.

This Virgo earth sign child may come out in the form of humor every now and again in the Pisces adult person. Pisces sun sign folks have quick wit and can be detail oriented in their humor. When they make these strikingly perceptive jokes and comments, this is their inner child surfacing and having some fun with their true nature.

While it is important for survival that the Virgo earth sign inner child is protected from the world, the Pisces sun person may be too afraid to let this child out to play that they allow other things control their nature instead. They may turn to alcohol, drugs, or depression to try to suppress this critical inner nature.

Libra Earth Sign

People with the sun in Aries have their earth signs in Libra in the same degrees and opposite house.

In earth sign astrology, people with the Libra earth sign just wanted peace as a child. They would have done anything to make the people around them happy, and in doing so, likely gave up their sense of self or what they wanted as children.

These were the kinds of children who were “over-sharers.” Libra earth signs never took the toys they wanted to play with if they thought it would cause a fuss with another child. The worst thing for a Libra earth child was a fight—this meant they had failed.

These children are deeply sympathetic and caring for others, and believe in justice and loyalty. They feel guilt more strongly than other children, and it is likely that in youth the Libra earth sign felt either guilt or shame surrounding most of their actions.

The Libra earth sign child was soft and agreeable. In youth, they were the glue of the family, keeping everyone together and giving up anything necessary to keep the family unit. This, of course, is the source of their pain.

The Libra earth child had to learn that life is not fair and equal, and that sometimes, people want power for the sake of wanting it. Their guilt about hurting other people became so prevalent that, if they had allowed it to, it would have swallowed them whole. Libra earth sign children had to learn at a very young age that they could not make everyone happy—but this hurt them deeply.

In learning this lesson, Libra earth sign children needed to develop qualities of the Aries sun adult in order to become less sensitive to the world.

On an inner level, they likely still feel guilt associated with their perception of others’ emotions. In order to do what they must in life, they had to learn to separate from these emotions and focus on themselves. In this sense, the Aries sun person was developed.

The Aries Adult:

The Aries sun person appears selfish on the outside—sometimes rash and rude, but that is only because the inner child is feeling guilty and inadequate. These Arian qualities were developed to protect the Libra earth sign on the inside, though they can be very helpful.

Aries sun people are still extremely loyal and loving deep down, and if you do not make them feel guilty, they will likely let out their Libra passive nature which is intuitive and caring.

Scorpio Earth Sign

If you have your sun sign in Taurus, then you have your earth in Scorpio in exact degrees but in the opposite house.

In earth sign astrology, the Scorpio earth sign person was extremely soft and sensitive in youth. They likely went wherever they were told, played with extreme imagination, and appeared vulnerable to their parents and those around them.

Scorpio earth sign children are very malleable and transformative in youth. They likely go through many phases, never being too attached to one thing—but they fully throw themselves into a different identity or phase.

The Scorpio earth sign child may appear to be very psychic in youth, experiencing situations and phenomenon’s that would not likely occur to others. Because of this experience, they probably do not mind alone time—they are never really alone and have many imaginary friends to play with.

In youth, the Scorpio earth sign’s parents probably took them anywhere and everywhere and they may not have felt that they had a solid basis of what “home” was. This may have led them to feel less important than other family members, as they were so easy-going and felt that it was being taken advantage of.

Scorpio earth sign children are extremely open and vulnerable and may cry easily when hurt either physically or emotionally.  People may have judged this, calling the child overly soft, which caused them significant pain in life. This led them to develop the qualities of the Taurus adult.

The Taurus Adult

The tough Taurus exterior protects the Scorpio earth sign inner child by providing it with stability and a home. The Taurus exterior often forgets to nurture the inner child and to let it feel the emotions—it rather pushes the emotions down and forgets about them, which in turn, only hurts the Scorpio earth sign child more.

In focusing so much on protection, the Taurus adult may lose the innate ability to connect with the universe.  While the Taurus sun develops primarily as protection for this soft and sensitive inner child, it also dims the light that the child had when it becomes too fixed and rigid.

It is important for the Taurus sun to allow the Scorpio child out to play every once in a while, so they can realign with their highest purpose and allow information from the universe.

Sagittarius Earth Sign

If you have your sun in Gemini, then your earth sign is in Sagittarius in exact degrees in the opposite house.

In earth sign astrology, the Sagittarius earth sign child was very solitary, wise, and happy on their own. Unlike other children who needed friends to play with, the Sagittarius earth sign child was fully content being on their own for most of their childhood and did not need friends, but rather craved experiences.

This was the kind of child that could float from house to house, be nice and kind to everyone, but really longed to see the world and get the most they could out of it. These Sagittarius earth signs are adventurous and fun at heart, though they do not need others the way that others may need them.

The Sagittarius earth sign child really would’ve gone anywhere, with anyone, as long as the place they were going offered a new experience. People around them picked up on this energy and began to dislike them as they often felt used by this child.

This is the source of these Sagittarius earth signs’ pain; they had to adapt and learn to care for others. These lessons created the Gemini Sun person—the individual who navigates the world by becoming everyone’s best friend.

The Gemini Adult:

The Gemini sun individual protects the adventurous inner child by interacting with people. These interactions hide their true nature and make them more likely to be accepted in the world.

People will often find that Gemini sun people are “fake,” but this is not the case. They are just protecting their Sagittarius earth sign inner child, who cares less about people and more about experiences.

That inner child still exists within the Gemini sun person. The Gemini sun person may long for new experiences or adventures, or they may treat life itself like an adventure. They develop incredible people skills and intellect in order to help them achieve these goals.

The Sagittarius earth sign child lives within the Gemini exoskeleton, always longing for more experiences and less people.

The Gemini adult must remember to let the child out to play. This can be done by adventures alone, or simply space from other people to help the Sagittarius earth sign child recuperate from all of the work that the Gemini adult does.

Capricorn Earth Sign

People with sun signs in Cancer have their earth signs in Capricorn in the same degrees, but the opposite house.

In earth sign astrology, the Capricorn earth sign child is very stoic and strong in youth. They do not exhibit many emotions, and rather turn their focus to other things, like competition and glory.  These Capricorn earth sign children are likely very good at what they do, whether it be sports, academics, or any kind of competitive event.

Capricorn earth sign children likely grew up in households where glory was expected. Their parents cared more about achievements than emotions. Capricorn earth sign children tried to buy their parents’ love and approval by being the best at what they did.

Where they succeeded in achievements, Capricorn earth sign children were lacking in compassion. People called them cold, controlling, and dismissive. They were not the nurturing older siblings that the Cancer adult became.

Instead, these Capricorn earth signs were cold and controlling. If they did not like the game that was being played, they would simply force everyone else to play a game they did want. People called them bossy and annoying.

Capricorn earth sign children learned to temper this cold nature by learning compassion. As adults, they developed emotional Cancer qualities such as compassion, acceptance, and love.

Deep down, the Capricorn earth person still wants to control the situation. As a parent, they may come across as a helicopter parent or may be overly involved in competitive events for their children. This is because their true nature, the Capricorn earth inner child, still views the world this way.

The Cancer Adult:

The Cancer sun adult tries to have compassion for the world around them. They attempt to protect their “cold” inner child by appearing and acting warm towards others so that they may be accepted.

Sometimes, these Cancer qualities they develop may stifle their inner child’s ability to play. The Capricorn earth sign inner child begins to feel powerless to the world around them, as they are no longer exerting their control over it.

It is important that the Cancer adult does not become too passive in his/her own life. The Capricorn earth sign child has needs that must be met. Capricorn earth signs need to know that their inner child is taking an active role in life.

Aquarius Earth Sign

People with their sun signs in Leo have their earth signs in Aquarius in the same degree, but opposite house.

In earth sign astrology, Aquarius earth sign children felt very detached in their early life. Their parents likely left them alone a lot and they spent a lot of time feeling lonely and wanting friends to play with.

These children feel disconnected from the world around them. They often don’t feel like they belong in their family situation, or even on earth. They are very logical to the point of coming across as detached– which causes them significant pain in childhood.

People want more compassion from them, but Aquarius earth signs often struggle with showing and giving that kind of compassion.

These children have knowledge beyond earth’s capacity, and may be attracted to space of alien life. This is an indicator that the Aquarius earth sign child is a Starseed of some kind, but they have trouble integrating on earth.

Because of this disconnect and loneliness, the Aquarius earth sign child feels that they need others to cope. They long for personal relationships, and become the Leo adult to deal with this internal loneliness. However, the Aquarius earth sign inner child likely never feels fully accepted.

The Leo Adult:

The Leo adult strives to work on personal relationships and wants to fit in.

Ideally, they would be surrounded by many friends and family, and would find themselves at the center of attention. This helps them to feel less lonely in their life and to feel as though they are meaningful and important to the world.

The Aquarius earth sign inner child still exists, dealing with loneliness no matter who they are surrounded by. This earth child is especially vulnerable when they are not surrounded by people, so in moments of alone time, the Leo sun adult feels like the child again.

These negative feelings lead the Leo sun adult to fill their lives with many different types of people. Leo sun people do not just have friends; all of their friends are “best friends.”

In actuality, they still feel very disconnected to others because of the Aquarius earth sign, and Leo suns can be hurt when these situations do not pan out the way they expected.

It is important for the Leo person to practice self love and spend time with the Aquarius earth sign inner child– telling the child that they is not alone and are always important.

Pisces Earth Sign

People with their sun signs in Virgo have their earth signs in Pisces in the same degrees, but the opposite house.

In earth sign astrology, the Pisces earth sign child is soft, sensitive, creative, and imaginative. They appear to live in their own world as a child and are not strongly affected by other people’s thoughts and actions.

Pisces earth sign children are exceptionally well connected to the universe. Sometimes, they’re very psychic. They may have dreams or premonitions about what is to come, or even manifest experiences using their imagination.

The Pisces earth sign child may struggle with addiction in childhood, whether it be to foods, television shows, or even games and activities. Their childhood may be relatively unsteady, leading them to create their own internal world that serves their emotional needs.

Pisces earth sign children are incredibly compassionate and empathetic towards everyone in their lives. They take on the emotions of everyone around them, leading them to feel deep existential sadness.

At some point in childhood, this existential sadness causes the Pisces earth sign too much pain and they must learn to separate their own emotions from those around them. They may have hurtful people in their life that try to shatter this bubble; this forces them to face the world around them.

The Virgo Adult:

In turn, they begin to create the discerning Virgo layer which is hyper-vigilant about the world around them.

This Virgo sun adult lives primarily in the present and is always on guard. This Virgo sun adult looks at the details of life. They try to live in the present as to preserve the innocence of the Pisces earth sign child.

If this is done correctly, the Virgo adult may become more health conscious and less addictive, while still maintaining the open and vulnerable nature of the Pisces earth sign child.

The Pisces earth sign child struggles with overindulgence in life, but the Virgo sun adult may be so tempered that they do not allow the child to have any fun. It is important to let Pisces earth signs, or the inner children, out to maintain the connection with the universe, while still being healthy.

A Guide To Chiron Aspects In The Natal Chart

A Guide To Chiron Aspects In The Natal Chart

Chiron is always painful regardless of where it sits, and when Chiron is aspected, there is no exception.

Sometimes, Chiron aspects to a planet make the planet more painful than usual, but it can also be helpful to have your Chiron aspected.

An aspected Chiron gives you an avenue through which you can start to heal your Chiron.

For example, with Chiron conjunct Mars, you know that the healing path for Chiron involves learning to exert your will. Without an aspect, you would simply be stuck.

I generally believe that Chiron aspects must have a relatively close orb to really be felt (3-4 degrees), but I do know of a few people who have a Chiron aspect that is over 8 degrees and they certainly feel the aspect.

Every Chiron aspect is specific to the person and to the chart, as always!

Sun conjunct Chiron

If you have the sun conjunct Chiron aspect, your pain and wound is related to your self-expression. You may feel as though you have to hide your true self. This is especially apparent in the house that the conjunction sits in.

You might not have enough self-confidence to go after what you want or to achieve your goals with sun conjunct Chiron. It can take almost a whole lifetime to heal this wound, but it’s well worth it!

I find that the sun conjunct Chiron wound often stems directly from the relationship with the father. Sometimes the father created this wound, and other times he simply made the wound that already existed more painful.

Regardless, you probably had a very distressing relationship with your father or male authority figure. You didn’t get the love and acceptance that you needed. As a child, you might have craved attention or to be noticed, but this wasn’t given to you, either.

At the worst, you might have been humiliated or denied by your father.

Look to the house that your sun conjunct Chiron aspect is in to see where you experienced these traumas the most in childhood.

For example, the sun conjunct Chiron aspect in the 12th house could mean that the father was missing, absent, or emotionally unavailable, while the 3rd house could mean that you were never heard or listened to; you had no voice.

Of course, the manifestation of the sun conjunct Chiron aspect depends a lot on the sign/element that both planets sit in as well as the house.

You probably react in some way when the sun conjunct Chiron aspect is triggered. You may react outwardly and hurt others through anger or words (more common with fire signs) or retreat and beat yourself up mentally (more common with water signs).

One gift with the sun conjunct Chiron aspect is that you have great potential to understand suffering around you. Because suffering is so inherent to who you are and is something that you experience almost daily through your sun sign, you can easily spot someone else in pain.

People with the sun conjunct Chiron aspect can be great healers or even just truly kind people, especially as they continue to work through some of the pain of the Chironic wound.

If you have the sun conjunct Chiron aspect, you need to work on your low self-confidence. Try to put yourself out there and go after what you want; you will gain self-confidence slowly through action.

You might lack the masculine push that makes your sun truly shine. This is regardless of your gender, for we all have both masculine and feminine within us. The sun is typically masculine because it is bright and active, but your sun might feel dimmed because of this aspect.

Self-expression and creativity are the keys to igniting the power of your sun sign. You must learn how to be yourself, unapologetically, without fear of the father or of re-triggering the wound.

In fact, you probably will re-trigger the wound as you work through these issues, but this is actually beneficial to help. It is only by triggering your Chiron that you can begin to deal with it and gain self-confidence even though you experience pain.

If this wound did stem from your relationship with your father, or even if he simply re-triggered the wound from a past life, you may need to realize that he will never accept you in the way you want. You can still heal your wound by learning to understand your father and forgive him.

Much of this sun conjunct Chiron wound revolves around understanding that the past cannot be undone and that bad things happened to you so that you could learn. Now, it is time to discover how to accept yourself and eventually, rejection from others will no longer hurt.

I also find that some people with sun conjunct Chiron reject the masculine side of themselves in an attempt to reject the father, or they overemphasize the masculine side in order to gain his approval.

The healing path here is to determine what is authentically masculine about you (we all have parts of us that are authentically masculine) and to embrace those pieces of yourself rather than try to fabricate new ones.

Moon-Chiron aspects:

Typically, Moon-Chiron aspects indicate that your wound was created through nurturing issues and show up in your emotions.

Moon conjunct Chiron:

The moon conjunct Chiron aspect in the natal chart often has to do with trauma related to the mother or the main caretaker during early childhood. This can manifest in a few different ways.

If you have the moon conjunct Chiron aspect, your mother might have been wounded and you took on her pain because you learned how to cope from her. You might feel like a mini replica of your mother in this area.

The sign and house that the moon conjunct Chiron aspect sit in will tell you more about where and how that pain manifests.

The wounds that you saw your mother take on and cope with, when you were a child, influence you now as an adult. You might subconsciously take them on yourself and play out her role without meaning to, even if you know it wasn’t for her best interest.

If this is the case, it is important that you now do the inner work to separate from your mother and experience her pain from your own point of view rather than hers. You also need to form your own beliefs about what you wound means instead of using hers.

Alternatively, you might have felt unwanted or abandoned by your mother. Instead of internalizing her pain, this wound was caused by your mother’s reaction to you.

Moon conjunct Chiron is a very painful aspect. If the outcome of this aspect is that you felt unwanted and that you weren’t taken care of, you might now feel extremely lonely and insecure.

There are many ways that this could have played out. Your mother might have been absent, verbally abusive and aggressive, passive-aggressive, or simply ignored your emotional needs.

You also might develop nurturing issues towards yourself and others. You may ignore your own needs because they were ignored by your mother or primary caretaker, or you might ignore the needs of others who are close to you (your partner, children, family, friends, pets, etc.).

The healing path with this moon conjunct Chiron aspect is to reconnect with the inner child and give your child what they didn’t get when you were actually little.

I personally believe that the inner child will always exist energetically on some dimension, so simply ignoring them isn’t an option. You won’t be able to heal these wounds until you go through the process of healing yourself inside.

Only then can you nurture yourself and others in an appropriate, caring way.

Moon trine Chiron:

With Moon trine Chiron, you have the ability to heal your Chironic wound through your emotions. Although this wound was created by an emotional pain (often related to the mother), you do possess the tools to heal it.

In fact, Moon trine Chiron means that there is a natural path to heal your Chiron. You will have many opportunities, when your emotions are triggered, to work through them.

Like any Chironic placement, Moon trine Chiron is painful. However, you will almost always feel a sense of progress and rightness.

You can use your intuition to overcome your Moon trine Chiron wound. You have a sense about what you need to do in order to heal.

Moon sextile Chiron:

With Moon sextile Chiron, you have deep emotions relating to your wound. This is a difficult placement because every time your emotions are triggered, the wound also pops up.

However, Moon sextile Chiron means that you have an opportunity to heal Chiron in these very instances. When your emotions are triggered, the Universe is giving you a path forward to address your wound.

With Moon sextile Chiron, you will be put in many situations where you must do the work to heal. You can avoid looking at your Chironic wound if you wish, because the Moon sextile Chiron aspect simply means you can work through your wound.

It would behoove you to address your Chironic wound as soon as possible in order to experience less pain in your life.

Moon opposition Chiron:

With Moon opposition Chiron, you might feel like a bottomless pit when it comes to your emotions. You’re never fulfilled; you don’t know if there’s anyone or anything out there that could fix how you feel.

Your emotional wounds are extremely slow to heal. Moon opposition Chiron means that your Chironic wound is emotional in some way, but it’s probably very murky to you. This is a wound of shadows.

Your Moon opposition Chiron aspect means that you have two opposite signs involved in this trauma. For example, you might have Moon in Aries and Chiron in Libra.

This aspect also means that you tend to focus entirely on one sign and ignore the other. You actively try to heal your wound through only one of these signs.

However, the Moon opposition Chiron wound will never truly be healed until you’re able to integrate both signs together. Your path to healing has the qualities and elements of both opposite signs.

You probably can’t ignore your pain, but you focus on it in the wrong way. If you do try to ignore the wound, you simply become more emotional and delusional.

Instead, you need to find a balanced, logical approach to healing your Chironic wound.

Moon square Chiron:

With Moon square Chiron, you have trouble expressing your feelings and emotional needs. When someone asks you if you’re alright, you probably say you’re fine even though it might be a lie.

Some people with Moon square Chiron have a tendency to overly emote or spill all of their feelings, then later feel guilty or awkward. They might try to avoid the person they spoke too entirely! There is an imbalance here so emotions often come out sideways.

With Moon square Chiron, you might feel as though emotional satisfaction is just out of reach. You always believe you will feel fulfilled if you just reach the next milestone, then are continuously disappointed. 

Ultimately, the Moon square Chiron aspects creates intense feelings of guilt. This is why you never tell other people about your emotions; you feel that to do so is burdensome. You also feel awkwardness about even showing emotion.

You might ignore problems in order to maintain your appearance or because you don’t want to worry others. However, when you do this for too long, it makes it difficult to heal your wounds.

Sometimes, you even take on other peoples’ issues in addition to your own. You will eventually feel overburdened emotionally, even though you will try to hide these feelings.

The first step with Moon square Chiron is to own your feelings. Find a way to tell those who are close to you how you truly feel when you feel it. At first, your words might come out awkward or wrong, but this is something that takes practice.

The only way for you to heal the wound with Moon square Chiron is to eventually open up and lessen your own sense of guilt. Care for yourself, for once, instead of for everyone else. Remember that your feelings matter too.

The work to heal Moon square Chiron is deep and subconscious. It simply takes time.

Ultimately, Moon square Chiron people can have so much awareness about human emotions! They have experienced so much emotional pain that, when they work through the wound, they can go on to be extremely understanding and empathetic.

Mercury conjunct Chiron

If you have the Mercury conjunct Chiron aspect, you were silenced at some point in your childhood. You may have experienced rejection when you wanted to share your thoughts with someone or you were told that your words were wrong or bad, or just that they didn’t matter.

You were especially silenced in the house and sign that Mercury conjunct Chiron is in.

This creates a wound that can manifest in a few different ways.

You be try to achieve perfectionism at all times. You may never speak without being sure that what you’re saying is perfect and double or triple check all of your work.

Alternatively, you may avoid all things logical and communication-related. Sometimes, people with the Mercury conjunct Chiron aspect work with their hands, avoid socializing, etc. so that the wound isn’t re-triggered.

Mercury conjunct Chiron can also indicate a disability to speech or movement. It might be social anxiety or general anxiety about saying the wrong thing.

It can also mean that your wound was caused by your siblings or peers, either in this life or in a past life. You might have felt invisible and that no one understood you, or you may have been bullied and insulted.

The path to heal the Mercury conjunct Chiron aspect involves learning to speak freely and to express yourself without fear.

The goal is not to be absolutely perfect in all communication, but to accept that anything less than perfection is simply a part of who you are and is good and right.

With the Mercury conjunct Chiron aspect, there is a chance to heal through words and logical thinking. Owning who you are and building up your own self-esteem is very important.

You will find healing power in words once you use them in a way that words for you.

Venus-Chiron Aspects:

Venus-Chiron aspects are all about wounding through relationships. It shows your potential for either healing or triggering the wound while in a relationship or partnership. These aspects can also indicate how much you “run away” from the wound by focusing on superficial things rather than the core issue.

Venus conjunct Chiron:

With Venus conjunct Chiron in the natal chart, you have low-self esteem in the area of love because of your wound. You don’t feel worthy of love and might question if you’re even likable.

You might have a fear of abandonment and rejection lurking in the back of your mind at all times. You may also choose partners who make you feel rejected, creating a self-fulfilling prophecy.

It can be really hard for you to set boundaries with Venus conjunct Chiron. You might feel like the only way to get acceptance from other people is to give up your own desires.

Venus conjunct Chiron can sometimes mean that you’re sensitive and wounded when it comes to all things feminine. Often, the way you look feels painful.

You might try to “overcome” your wound by achieving physical beauty or becoming obsessed with how you look. This only hides the wound temporarily.

Alternatively, it is your physical appearance that causes you pain and triggers the wound.

Venus conjunct Chiron is a tough aspect in the natal chart. It can make romantic relationships and love very painful, but it extends beyond just partnerships and creates a wound that steps on who you are and your feminine side.

As with any Chiron placement, the healing path for Venus conjunct Chiron involves accepting your inner child or shadow self instead of changing your outer appearance or personality.

It is simply impossible to hide from the shadow self forever. Even though it’s more painful, the best way to heal is to go through rather than around.

Venus trine Chiron:

With Venus trine Chiron, you are drawn to relationships but also fear them. You instinctively/unconsciously know that healing is done through relationships, but you also sense that it will be painful.

This placement means that relationships are essential to heal your Chironic wound. Love and partnerships are vessels to finally alter your wound for good.

However, be careful with Venus trine Chiron that you don’t depend on someone else to “fix” you. It’s easy to look for healing in someone else and ignore that which is within you.

Venus trine Chiron means that you should embrace your relationships for the purpose of healing, but remember that true healing comes from within. Your relationships simply give you a means to get there. 

Once you’re in a relationship, you must do the work yourself. Venus trine Chiron simply means that your relationships will put you in situations to help you heal, not that your partner will magically heal you.

Venus sextile Chiron:

With Venus sextile Chiron, you have the opportunity to heal your Chironic wound through relationships. However, you must actively seek out ways to heal yourself and do the work.

Be careful that you don’t get stuck in superficial love situations. Venus sextile Chiron means that you can easily focus on how things “look” rather than on the wound within.

You should also avoid relationships where you keep the peace. This is a sign, with Venus sextile Chiron, that you’re ignoring the wound within.

All this Venus sextile Chiron placement means is that in a relationship, you will have more situations that trigger your Chironic wound, enabling you to work on it. However, you must actually do this work inside of just waiting until the situations pass.

Venus sextile Chiron may still be a bit painful, but you will come out on the other side much faster if you push through and do inner work at every turn.

Venus opposition Chiron:

With Venus opposition Chiron, your wounds are likely to come out in romantic relationships or close friendships. However, you also seek out intimate relationships as much as possible.

You depend on others loving you. When someone doesn’t approve of you or show you affection, you might feel extremely let down. 

What you don’t realize is that because of Venus opposition Chiron, the true issue is your own lack of self love. You look to others to fill you up and make you feel better, but it will never truly work.

When someone disapproves of you, it’s easy for you to fixate on how to mend the situation. However, you wouldn’t be feeling so badly if you didn’t agree with them deep down.

Self love is an important lesson with Venus opposition Chiron. The only way to heal your Chironic wound is to stop focusing on others and look inside.

You may also think that if things “look good” then the wound will be healed. Venus opposition Chiron means that you may focus too much on image or superficial friendships or relationships. This is simply taking you further away from healing your Chironic wound. Instead, look within to the shadow self.

Venus square Chiron:

Venus square Chiron can indicate physical, emotional, or sexual abuse in a past life or in childhood. With this aspect, you have been wounded in love. This can refer to either platonic or romantic love.

Now, you may have issues with low self-esteem and truly loving yourself. You’re probably generous with others, but you don’t always treat yourself well.

Venus square Chiron can mean that you give love to those who don’t necessarily deserve it (those who wound you) while you ignore those who should receive your love.

There’s potential with this Venus square Chiron aspect for you to treat those closest to you rather badly. You’re always chasing something, but when someone does give you love (and it does nothing to fix your wound) you stop noticing.

Most relationships are painful for you with Venus square Chiron. You just can’t get a grip on exactly what you’re looking for.

Be cautious of getting stuck in relationships with emotionally abusive partners. Sometimes, you subconsciously re-trigger the wound over and over, as though you’re reliving your trauma.

Alternatively, you might actually become abusive in relationships in order to get a sense of control. You mistakenly believe that this will fix the wound inside. However, it’s actually a sense of love you’re looking for, not control or power.

Ultimately, the Venus square Chiron wound can only be worked through by looking within. If you find yourself accepting negative treatment from others or treating those around you badly, this is a signal to look within. It is painful work, but it can be done and you will then experience more positive, nurturing relationships.

Mars conjunct Chiron

With Mars conjunct Chiron, your wound was created due to an act of aggression. You learned that aggression was bad and painful.

Now, Mars conjunct Chiron may manifest as your struggle to be assertive, low self-esteem with your endeavors, and low drive. You might keep your aggression hidden and display only nice, diplomatic tendencies. You feel that it’s not OK to get angry.

Alternatively, you may overcompensate with misplaced, excessive aggression and impulsiveness.

Mars conjunct Chiron can signify painful relationships with men or aggressive sexual trauma, although this is not always the case.

You may be very good at hiding when the wound has triggered you, but there is always an unsettled emotional undercurrent. There may also be an unconscious urgency present in you.

When you channel your energy in the right way, you can be very powerful. Often, those with Mars conjunct Chiron need to channel the excess energy that builds up inside of them due to this blockage.

There are many ways to channel energy. Some use art, music, science, writing, physical fitness, etc. Much of this will depend on other aspects in your chart and the sign and house that Mars conjunct Chiron sits in.

Jupiter conjunct Chiron

Jupiter conjunct Chiron can be the mark of a great healer or teacher, if it is used correctly. For the Jupiter conjunct Chiron individual, the adventure of life is simply the journey of healing.

At the same time, Jupiter conjunct Chiron can be a difficult placement. Jupiter magnifies everything it touches, so the Chironic wound may feel like it seeps into every aspect of your life.

Jupiter conjunct Chiron generally means that the wound was created over a trauma concerning fairness, justice, equality, morals, ethics, spirituality, or money.

This often pushes the individual ot be involved in “big-picture” things in some way. With Jupiter conjunct Chiron, you may feel strongly about humanity “getting somewhere,” especially in the house and sign that your Chiron sits in.

Saturn conjunct Chiron

If you have Saturn conjunct Chiron, you were rejected in childhood by a parent. This often signifies the father, but it can be any authority figure depending on your individual chart.

Alternatively, you may have a fear of authority figures due to your experiences in childhood. Sometimes, you were both rejected (creating negative self-worth feelings within you) and are afraid of authority.

This can manifest in many different ways. So much of the Saturn conjunct Chiron aspect depends on the sign and the house, so make sure that you study both of those and take those meanings into account.

With this Saturn conjunct Chiron wound, you might feel worthy only if you achieve something in the eyes of society. You were never worthy to your father figure, so you now try to get acceptance from society instead. You overcompensate for the wound.

This might be a push-pull. You’re always trying to live up to what you think your father figure would want from you, but you simultaneously push against it.

Alternatively, you may develop issues with control. You might seek to control yourself completely but find that you’re unable to stuff down your emotional reactions when the wound is triggered, or you might instead focus on controlling others. Again, this manifestation will depend on the house and sign.

One of the best qualities about the Saturn conjunct Chiron placement is that these folks are easily able to learn from their own mistakes. They can be rather successful in life if the chart is well-aspected and set up for success.

The work with the Saturn conjunct Chiron aspect is to learn to love your wounds for their service to you. Even though these wounds feel bad and scary, this aspect (and your Chiron in general) forces you to go within and learn to accept yourself.

You need to give your inner child or shadow self the acceptance and approval that your father figure did not in order to heal.

Saturn conjunct Chiron can often lead to a healing path. Regardless of what you actually do for your job, this aspect usually means that considerable work was done in a past life on the evolution of your consciousness, especially if the Saturn conjunct Chiron aspect is in a water sign.

Uranus conjunct Chiron

With Uranus conjunct Chiron, your wound makes you feel different or alien in society. You probably feel that you don’t fit in.

Uranus conjunct Chiron also means that your wound is triggered when you feel different. You can look to the house and the sign that Uranus conjunct Chiron sits into see exactly where and how this plays out.

To heal Uranus conjunct Chiron, you will need to come to terms with and accept your own unique nature. It can also help to figure out why you’re different and learn what you were sent to earth to accomplish.

Neptune conjunct Chiron

Neptune conjunct Chiron can mean that the wound is related to a trauma concerning alcohol or drug addiction, mental illness, or a lack of spiritual faith.

You will need to look at the house and sign Neptune conjunct Chiron sits in to determine exactly how this wound manfiests.

Most of the time, the healing path for Neptune conjunct Chiron is to learn how to trust in the Universe and in the divine.

Pluto conjunct Chiron

With Pluto conjunct Chiron, you may be very focused on what you believe is powerful. This is typically because your wound was created by someone having power over you.

Because of this Pluto conjunct Chiron wound, you believed that you needed to either acquire society power or give it up completely. You have power and control issues and you don’t know how to manage them.

The key to healing Pluto conjunct Chiron is to delve into what truly happened to create the wound instead of trying to cover it up with external power.

Chiron conjunct Vesta

Vesta can refer to a lot of different things in life, so Chiron conjunct Vesta is a tricky aspect to explain. I’ll do my best to lay out each interpretation; you will need to look at the conjunction, the house, the sign, and other aspects to see which will fit.

Sometimes, Chiron conjunct Vesta manifests so that the individual feels like they must be perfect all of the time in some area. There is no flexibility. For example, with Chiron conjunct Vesta in the 9th house, an individual might have a deep fear of failing out of school or appearing unintelligent.

Alternatively, it might manifest in a gender imbalance. For example, a girl who grows up in a home with only women where men are shunned may feel that this gender imbalance contributes to the wound and stifles their own masculine side.

Chiron conjunct Vesta is common in natal charts of people who had to move away from their homes or families. It shows in those who lost a parent, went to boarding school, grew up in an orphanage, or were exiled or isolated in some way. This isn’t always the case (as I said, Chiron conjunct Vesta has many meanings and interpretations).

It can also appear in people’s charts who grew up in bleak homes. Vesta signifies religion or a monastery or nunnery, so it can often mean that the person was stifled in their home in some way.

Generally, Vesta points to spirituality, religion, sexuality, and devotion. All of these things can be healthy when balanced or can quickly become harmful when unbalanced.

Look to the sign and house that your Chiron conjunct Vesta aspect fits in and see where you are unbalanced and where any imbalance may be covering up the Chironic wound.

Chiron conjunct Pallas

You path of healing and initiation is likely to be very intellectual and creative, and could well include political involvement. You may employ art therapy as a means of awakening self-awareness. Your intelligence naturally gravitates to holistic and natural methods, and you articulate your understanding both verbally and artistically with great insight. Your journey is about upholding justice and promoting the arts within your social milieu, as well as finding keys to your personal healing and transformation.

Chiron conjunct Juno

With Chiron conjunct Juno, you have a wound surrounding marriage and long-term partnerships, most likely caused from a past life trauma.

You may also have been traumatized by your parents’ marriage or others you witnesses as a child, although this is not always the case. You may have just been hurt by your own marriage or partnership in a past life.

This trauma causes a lot of pain for you in present-day marriages or relationships. Marriage brings out all of your wounds; this is both helpful and difficult.

To heal a wound, you need to be able to see it. Chiron conjunct Juno illuminates the wound through marriage, enabling you to recognize it then work on the Chironic wound within a marriage or partnership.

Sometimes, people with Chiron conjunct Juno have a fear of commitment or a fear of being committed to.

To heal, you will need to reshape and redefine your understanding of what a marriage or partnership is.

The sign of your Chiron conjunct Juno can give you insight into how you need to redefine your definition of marriage.

Chiron conjunct Ceres

If you have the Chiron conjunct Ceres aspect, your wound comes from the nurturing that you received in childhood. Either you didn’t receive enough nurture or you weren’t nurtured in a way that was appropriate for you.

This lack of true nurture has caused this Chiron conjunct Ceres wound. Now, you might not know how to appropriately nurture yourself and others.

There is a lot of pain surrounding the ideas of nurturing and mothering. You aren’t able to self-nurture without triggering the pain of the wound.

This is actually one of the better conjunctions for Chiron. With Chiron conjunct Ceres, you have the opportunity to heal the wound through learning how to appropriately and effectively nurture yourself.

You need to figure out what type of nurturing feels good for you. Your Ceres sign and house will give you some clues as to how you naturally receive care.

Chiron conjunct North Node

If you have Chiron conjunct North Node, it is more essential than any others that you deal with Chiron in this lifetime.

In past lifetimes, you were probably taught to avoid looking at your wound, but in this lifetime, the only way to heal your Chiron wound is to deal with it straight on.

Chiron conjunct North Node is an aspect of direct action.

With Chiron conjunct North Node, it will be very difficult to learn the lessons of your North Node without first healing Chiron.

Chiron conjunct South Node

Chiron wounds often come with us from a past life, but this is especially true with the Chiron conjunct South Node aspect. I find that with this aspect, the Chironic wound not only comes from a past life but was recreated in childhood, so it might feel like you have been wounded over and over.

You probably came into this incarnation with strong memories of your Chironic wound, and these memories were only amplified in childhood. You may have even been re-wounded with the same parental souls.

Now, you probably depend on others to relieve the wound for you or you find outlets to try and relieve it, but you never actually look inside at what wounded you.

For Chiron conjunct South Node people, the answer to unlocking the trauma that Chiron caused is within. No one else can help you heal this wound.

In this lifetime, parents or authority figures either can’t or won’t give you what you need to help your Chiron heal. You need to heal yourself.

Might depend on others to relieve wound or find other ways to relieve it but never really look at it

The answer to unlocking the trauma that caused Chiron is only within you; no one else can help. You can’t depend on parents or authority figures but must find the healing path yourself. Start by simply looking within.

Chiron conjunct Ascendant

Chiron conjunct Ascendant is an especially tough placement. With this aspect, you encounter some early trauma in life or possibly even a trauma birth. I find that these people often didn’t want to be born on a soul level.

Often, this trauma was unconscious because it occurred at a soul level. It happens very early in your life.

As you grow, you have the vague feeling that you don’t have the right to exist. You feel like a social outcast, whether this is with family, friends, or society as a whole.

The Chiron conjunct ascendant aspect makes it very difficult for you to create an identity that you can show to the world. You might feel like you’re “no one” in front of others, that you don’t have an outer personality.

You may also feel insecure around others, especially strangers, and you will either retreat or act out to deal with this pain. You probably try to escape the world to escape the wound, but it follows you.

You’re afraid of doing or saying the wrong thing. You also may have a physical wound or feel lacking in some way that is strictly physical.

If this isn’t the case, you may instead change your appearance drastically to try and combat your Chironic wound, but this does not ultimately heal it.

Almost everyone with Chiron conjunct Ascendant are very self-conscious about their physical appearance.

If you have Chiron conjunct Ascendant, you probably didn’t like the way you looked growing up. Alternatively, the physical appearance was the source of trauma.

Ultimately, with Chiron conjunct Ascendant, the wound is the first mask. Over time, you come to believe that the wound is you instead of something that happened to you.

Healing will happen when you’re able to separate out the wound from who you are and see that your trauma is just something that happened to you, not who you are as a person.

Chiron conjunct Descendant

With Chiron conjunct Descendant, you are probably attracted to “wounded birds.”

You wounds are illuminated through relationships, but this is because your Chironic wound will be reflected in others. This will force you to deal with the wound.

Chiron conjunct Midheaven

If you have Chiron conjunct Midheaven, your journey to heal your Chiron will be played out in front of the eyes of others, whether this is something that you want or not.

You probably have a bit of a push-pull when it comes to your public image. You want other to see your story and your pain and to understand you, but you are simultaneously afraid of the limelight.

With Chiron conjunct Midheaven, you won’t be able to figure out what the best profession is for your soul until the wound is looked at and attended to.

Chiron conjunct IC

Chiron conjunct IC usually means that you experienced great pain in childhood. Your wound relates to your parents, grandparents, the past, your heredity, genetics, etc.

With Chiron conjunct IC, you will probably try to escape the wound by “remaining” in the 10th house career and public image life. You will put all of your focus into what you do and who you are now.

Unfortunately, your Chironic wound always bleeds through, so it will become a part of your public life, even if you don’t want it to.

This Chiron conjunct IC aspect can lead to uncomfortable airings of the deepest wound or huge amounts of drama in public places.

Alternatively, if you are able to keep your Chiron conjunct IC aspect and your public life separate (which is rare and quite hard to do with this aspect), there will be tension and conflict between your career and your internal wound.

You may feel as though your career is always aggravating your wound in some way, and this is because you must be forced to see it in order to heal it.

Chiron conjunct Lilith

With Chiron conjunct Lilith, your wound was created by a trauma that feels taboo and shameful. It may be connected to sexuality, feminism, racism, homophobia, or anything that you considered “wrong.”

The Chiron conjunct Lilith aspect, more than any other, calls on you to address painful and shameful stories. The healing path, as always, is inside of you.

Many people with Chiron conjunct Lilith try to fix the world outside, to stop a similar trauma from every happening again, but it is inside of you that needs healing and care.

Sometimes, Chiron conjunct Lilith can manifest as extreme rage. Other times it manifests as shame or extreme embarrassment. To heal this aspect, you need to find out what the trauma was and re-define your beliefs surrounding what happened.

Chiron In Aquarius: The Wound Of Belonging

Chiron In Aquarius: The Wound Of Belonging

Chiron in the wound that you’re born with, but it continues to develop throughout your life for better or worse. Chiron in Aquarius is all about feeling different. This wound can show itself in a lot of different ways.

In general, the Chironic wound is something that pops up over and over in your life. Unlike Saturn, which can be hidden, it’s hard to forget about your Chiron.

At the same time, Chiron can always be healed and used for good.

Chiron in Aquarius is especially hard to forget because it shows up any time you’re in a group setting.

I also find that Chiron in Aquarius is a super important placement because it shows you that you soul has a unique purpose on this earth.

The Chiron In Aquarius Wound

The Chiron in Aquarius wound is all about your sense of belonging in a community.

If you have Chiron in Aquarius, you might feel disconnected or self-conscious in a group setting. You feel like you don’t truly belong in the community in some way.

Aquarius is a group sign but it’s also about being different or quirky. With Chiron, this perfectly explains the wound.

You want to be in group settings but you also feel different, as though you don’t belong. You might even feel like there’s something wrong with you.

Ultimately, you just can’t fit into the community in the way that you want to.

It’s common for people with Chiron in Aquarius to seek company but be lonely among others at the same time.

Sometimes, the Chiron in Aquarius person can even feel like an outsider from the rest of humanity.

This individual can also feel unsafe, separated, ungrounded, or self-conscious around groups of people. These groups might be friends, family, the community, or other humans in general.

The Chiron in Aquarius person is often uncomfortable with the things that make them different from others, even if these qualities are actually a gift.

How The Chironic Wound Will Show Itself

If you have Chiron in Aquarius, you feel different in groups, but this will manifest in one of two ways.

In the first way, you go out of your way to get a reaction about your differences. You come off as ultra-eccentric.

It is the differences that you have that you play up around others, but not necessarily in a positive way.

You might come off as weird or odd because you’re forcing these differences rather than showing them in an authentic way.

You might also react strongly to any perceived slight. You do this to break bonds that might be forming before the other people can break them or judge you because that would be too painful.

Alternatively, with Chiron in Aquarius, you might remain friendly but distant. You never really feel comfortable in a group so you’re scared to open up and show your true self.

It might be hard for others to really grasp who you are because you avoid becoming truly close.

I find that the Chiron in Aquarius person can sometimes (depending on the house) get obsessed with social causes as a way of feeling connected to society, however this might backfire because the individual really wants to belong in a group, not just to the idea of a cause.

Where Does The Chiron In Aquarius Wound Come From?

First of all, the Chiron in Aquarius wound often shows up in the charts of people who are Starseeds.

If you have Chiron in Aquarius, there is probably a good reason you feel like an outside, and that is because you quite literally hail from another planet.

Throughout your past lives on earth, these differences were probably highlighted. You might not have known how to act and how to fit in among the rules and society on Earth.

I find that this wound usually did begin with real differences, but when you were hurt by groups noticing these differences, your feelings compounded and over time created a deep, painful wound.

Now, the wound might be triggered even if you technically do fit in because the wound is inside you.

How To Heal Chiron In Aquarius

To heal Chiron in Aquarius, you must first realize that you most likely come from another solar system or even universe. You bring unique qualities to the world and these are gifts rather than burdens.

All Starseeds are here for a reason and it is bring everyone on Earth forward and to help others evolve.

Take time alone to connect with the universe and the energy that is within you. There are gifts that are natural to you and this is why you are different.

The path to healing Chiron in Aquarius involves learning to see that you do fit into the grand plan.

You need to learn how to discriminate between different systems of thought and recognize when a group isn’t a good fit for you without feeling rejected.

At the end of the day, even with Chiron in Aquarius, you do fit somewhere. To heal, you need to figure out where that is and learn to let go of resentful towards the people whom you didn’t fit in with.

Lastly, it can be helpful to look at the ways that your differences from others are actually similarities in essence. This will come through silent communication with the universe.

Chiron In The Houses

Chiron In The Houses

Chiron was only just discovered in 1977, but many astrologers (including myself) consider Chiron to be an essential asteroid in the birth chart. Today, I’ll be looking at Chiron in the houses, as well as explaining how you can put your Chiron’s sign and house together to create one fluid definition.

Our Chironic wounds indicate the area where we have been hurt to a huge extent. We carry these wounds around with us and are unable to escape them. The goal is instead to heal these wounds and use what we learn from Chiron for good.

What Is Chiron?

Chiron is known as the “wounded healer” in astrology. Through learning about Chiron, you will get to know and understand your deepest wounds that were created in a past life, in childhood, or (often) a mixture of both.

I find that it’s really beneficial to learn about Chiron, not just because you need to heal it, but because our Chironic wounds give us deeper insight into ourselves and our psyche.

How To Read Chiron In The Houses:

The signs show the nature of Chiron and how it is expressed, but the houses show the context for Chironic expression. Chiron in the houses will show where your sign is expressed, including the location, the part of the psyche, the timeline, etc.

The goal is to look at both your Chiron in the signs and Chiron in the houses together. While this is tricky to do, it takes a bit of analysis and creativity.

I included examples through these Chiron in the houses descriptions, but feel free to drop a comment with any questions. I’m happy to help you figure out what your Chiron means!

Chiron In The Signs:

If you’re looking to read about Chiron in the signs, check out these posts:

Chiron In The 1st House

Chiron in the 1st house can seem pretty obvious to everyone else. Your Chironic wound quite literally shows up in your sense of self, identity, and self-worth. Chiron is very conspicuous in the way that you present yourself.

If you have Chiron in the 1st house, Chiron might also impact your physical health or appearance in some way. The wound often manifests in a physical nature as well as emotionally or mentally.

For example, you might have been physically ignored, abused, have a physical illness, or found some part of your body lacking, depending on the sign that your Chiron in the 1st house sits in.

I find that Chiron in the 1st house can often indicate that the wound was either learned or cemented (if it was first learned in a past life) during childhood. Something about this person’s youth made this Chironic wound an integral part of the outer personality.

Because Chiron in the 1st house is related to childhood, these folks can carry the Chironic wound through their inner child as they age. They might learn to hide it after a time, but the wound will always sit with the inner child.

This Chiron in the 1st house wound will typically manifest in the person’s outward appearance and personality. When you first meet a person with Chiron in the 1st house, you will see the wound right away.

If you have this placement, look at how you feel around other people and how you present yourself. This will most likely point to the wound.

For example, someone with Chiron in the 1st house in Capricorn may have felt ignored or passed over but they also present as cold and stoic. An individual with Libra may feel dependent on others, even when they first meet them, and become clingy quickly.

If Chiron is conjunct the ascendant in the first house, these feelings will be especially strong. Chiron in the 1st house is more likely to present itself physically when it is conjunct the ascendant. Chiron in retrograde may be less obvious to others but more obvious to the individual, although this is not always the case.

Chiron In The 2nd House

If you have Chiron in the 2nd house, your wound is in the area of security. In some way, you felt as though you lacked security, safety, or well-being. This might be especially obvious during childhood with Chiron in the 2nd house.

This placement can show up in a lot of ways; this depends almost entirely on the sign that Chiron is in. For example, Chiron in Cancer may indicate a lack of emotional security or security regarding the home, while Chiron in Pisces can indicate a lack of spiritual security or the mental illness or addiction of a parent or caretaker.

Chiron in the 2nd house can manifest through security issues with inheritance, money, the home, spiritual guidance, spiritual security, emotional security, mental security, physical security, etc. These people might feel like there is no guiding force in their life (lack of parental security) or they may feel that they are coerced into decisions and can’t develop their own inner self (lack of inner security).

I find that people with Chiron in the 2nd house were often belittled in some way in childhood. They may have had little to no affection, or the affection that they did receive was inappropriate in some way.

At the end of the day, if you have Chiron in the 2nd house, you’ll want to learn how to provide the security you were missing for yourself.

You will also recognize that there is no true security on earth beyond believing in the powers of the Universe and believing that everything happens for a reason. You will learn to discern that many societal constructs are just illusions. By figuring out what’s true for you and what the Universe means to you, you’ll develop your own sense of inner security.

At the same time, it can be helpful for people with Chiron in the 2nd house to take practical steps towards feeling safe. For example, if you felt physically unsafe, creating a safe environment (in neighborhood with low crime rates, installing an alarm system, etc.) might help you to work through your Chiron.

Chiron in the 3rd House

Chiron in the 3rd house has to do with your ability to process information mentally and to communicate.

If you have Chiron in the 3rd house, you might have difficulty expressing yourself and being heard. Sometimes, you are easily heard, but your true intentions don’t come across.

It’s easy for Chiron in the 3rd house people to incur destructive or negative thought patterns, but they might alternatively avoid anything emotional and have difficulty discussing what they feel. Most people with Chiron in the 3rd house fall into one of these two extremes.

I find that people with Chiron in the 3rd house often believe strongly in rationality and logic, but this is sometimes at the expense of developing their intuition or following their gut feelings. Alternatively, these folks will use only emotion and throw logic and intuition to the wayside.

Sometimes, there is even a bit of both. The third house can be a bit erratic because it is the house of Gemini, so the individual with Chiron in the 3rd house might sometimes be completely illogical and emotional, but other times rely only on facts and avoid displays of emotion or empathy.

I also notice that Chiron in the 3rd house can relate to learning disabilities, such as dyslexia or ADD. These folks think a bit differently than others, and while there is nothing wrong with that, they inherently don’t like their differences. It is their own judgments of their differences (that are formed from society) that cause the issues.

Occasionally, Chiron in the 3rd house can also refer to a wound with siblings. There may be past life trauma or wounds with these specific siblings, or the siblings may just be unable to communicate effectively. This causes a deep wound and hurt for the Chiron in the 3rd house individual.

The way to heal Chiron in the 3rd house is to speak your truth. Learn to value your own thoughts and opinions, and practice balancing gut instincts with logic. You will develop your own method of communication with enough practice, but you must first let go of the judgement that either you or society has cast on your mental abilities.

Chiron in the 4th House

If you have Chiron in the 4th house, your Chironic wound feels most active when you’re around family or other people from your childhood.

This placement means that your home life either failed to fill the void that your Chiron sign left (in a past life; the specific void will depend on Chiron’s sign), or your childhood simply made Chiron worse. These feelings are always re-triggered when you feel like your “young self” again because your Chiron in the 4th house wound has become a part of your inner child.

You might be very sensitive around family. If things go even slightly wrong, you can easily veer into loneliness or hopelessness.

Often, Chiron in the 4th house means that at least one of your parental figures was absent. They might have been absent emotionally, mentally, or physically, but this absence affected you deeply. You may now struggle to figure out where and with whom you belong.

I find that this Chiron in the 4th house placement can lead to over-attachment (or anxious attachment) to those who do stick around. Alternatively, the individual might become less attached than normal (avoidant attachment) in order to avoid getting hurt as they did when they were a child.

In relationships, the Chiron in the 4th house individual might struggle to let go, even when the relationship is unhealthy. It’s difficult for these people to see red flags once they’re attached.

If you have this placement, you might be very good at naturally picking up on the wounds of others. Chiron in the 4th house means that you can be a great caretaker, but you can also get emotionally overwhelmed easily. You sometimes get stuck caring for people with wounds that they don’t want to heal.

With Chiron in the 4th house, you need to learn that you are the only one who can give yourself proper validation to heal. You’ll also need to understand that you’re good enough to be cared for by others and that you deserve more than what you ask for.

I find that Chiron in the 4th house is always a lesson of worthiness, but this is a quality that must be developed from the inside.

Chiron in the 5th House

Chiron in the 5th house is especially dependent on the sign that Chiron sits in. This 5th house wound is all about a deep hurt relating to the Inner Child, sexuality, romance, self-expression, or creativity.

If you have Chiron in the 5th house, you probably hide what is unique about you, especially in the sign of your Chiron. You take many various reactions from others as rejection, even when they’re not.

Your inner infant wasn’t given nonjudgmental freedom to play, so now you are hyper self-critical and aware. You are afraid of how others would receive your most vulnerable self. To try and cloak this fear, you simply suppress that part of you.

The Chiron in the 5th house person might be extra-self conscious. It’s hard for them to let go and have fun.

Although I find that Chiron in the 5th house often manifests in this way, there are a few other ways it can manifest instead.

Sometimes, Chiron in the 5th house can be about children. You might want children but are unable to have them, so you live with this wound, or you might become hyper-critical of your children because you don’t want them to experience the wound that you felt.

Alternatively, the Chiron in the 5th house person might be wounded or betrayed by partners and by romance in general.

The path to healing Chiron in the 5th house largely depends on the scenario and the Chiron sign. Learning to be vulnerable with yourself is always a good first step, as well as finding the will to create and shine, especially in your specific Chiron sign.

The goal with Chiron in the 5th house is to live from the heart with honesty and integrity.

Chiron in the 6th House

If you have Chiron in the 6th house, your woundedness plays out in the workplace or through working with the community. You will see your wound show up most often where you spend your days (work, school, etc.).

This is a tough placement for a wound because it’s hard to escape it. The wound will also depend a good deal on the sign that Chiron sits in.

Some people with Chiron in the 6th house remember feeling different from other children in school, or they felt that their wound showed up over and over in the workplace no matter how they tried to hide it.

Alternatively, the Chiron in the 6th house wound might also appear in the areas of medicine, health, or disease. Sometimes, a Chiron in the 6th house wound will show up both in day-to-day matters and health-related problems.

This placement can also create OCD if Chiron is in a sign that is relevant to this disorder. With Chiron in the 6th house, emotional issues often become physical after a time.

The lesson is to learn to fully accept the self. Most of the problems that come with Chiron in the 6th house are because the individual is trying to reject the self in some way, whether it is because the self is impure, unclean, or simply wrong.

The healing path is to realize that this is simply a false judgment and to work on accepting the inner self completely.

Chiron in the 7th House

If you have Chiron in the 7th house, your woundedness comes through relationships with others. It is being in a relationship (often a romantic relationship) that triggers your wound, although it always lies dormant under the surface, even when you don’t see it.

You may feel that you don’t have a “self” with Chiron in the 7th house. You might try to emotionally merge or mesh with your partner.

These are the folks that may stifle themselves in relationships in order to hang onto the partnership. They feel that they can’t express who they truly are.

There is potential for these people to end up in abusive relationships due to the nature of the Chironic wound, but they might instead be stifled in other ways, such as entering into a relationship with a partner who has a disability and needs constant care. They always feel as though they need to sacrifice the self.

While the Chiron in the 7th house person may truly love their partner, they might also lose themselves in the relationship.

Sometimes, these qualities and traits are learned from parents or from role models early in life. How the relationship issues manifest will depend on the sign that Chiron is in.

Chiron in the 8th House

If you have Chiron in the 8th house, your wound has to do with spirituality, death, loss, power, sexuality or money. This wound often has a lot to do with mortality.

Usually, the wound is caused by a trauma surrounding death, loss, control, sex, or financial issues (to the max). This may have been a trauma that happened to you in a past life or a trauma you experienced in childhood that caused these learned behaviors.

You are now terrified of what you learned through that trauma. Chiron in the 8th house especially creates a deep, impactful wound that can really hurt you if you don’t work to heal it.

I find that Chiron in the 8th house can indicate losses through death You might be surrounded by a lot of death or you might have lost many people in some manner during early life. This might even happen up through your teenage years, or it might just be something you’re fearful of because of a past life trauma.

Alternatively, your Chiron will center around control. You may either try to control others in a variety of ways or give up your personal control and allow others to take charge of you.

Chiron in the 9th House

Chiron in the 9th house means that your wound can play out in one of many areas, including travel, spirituality or religion, philosophy, ethics, morals, or higher education.

This one can be a bit complicated to explain so I’m going to try and break it down a bit.

Firstly, with Chiron in the 9th house, you may have been wounded in some way because of the belief system you grew up with. You might either try extra hard to find a spiritual path to make sense of your life, or you might avoid thinking about spirituality or religion in general.

These folks are either religious (or spiritual fanatics) or they are completely agnostic. Sometimes, they are constantly having spiritual crises that they just can’t seem to figure out. They might have a need to find an external “God” that exists outside of and separately from themselves.

Alternatively, travel or other cultures were involved in the wound. Sometimes people with Chiron in the 9th house grew up traveling constantly and never had roots, never fit into other cultures, or struggled to find a culture that they did fit into. They might feel like they don’t truly belong anywhere.

Lastly, the individual with Chiron in the 9th house might become disillusioned because they fail to live up to a specific vision or potential that they imposed on themselves. I find that this “potential” is sometimes imposed by the parents, but sometimes it is just the individual’s desire to escape the wound through succeeding in a specific way.

The person with Chiron in the 9th house will usually use 9th house means to try and escape the wound (become a lifelong traveler, get immersed in academia with a fear of failure, become heavily involved in philosophy or politics, etc.).

Again, look to the sign that Chiron in the 9th house is in to determine how this wound will play out. The sign typically indicates the cause of the wound, especially with Chiron in the 9th house.

I find that the most telling indicator of someone with Chiron in the 9th house is the feeling that they are a failure. There is usually an internal mechanism that tells the person over and over that they have failed, no matter how hard they try.

Chiron in the 10th House

Chiron in the 10th house indicates that your wound is related to your career or your public image. The woundedness is played out in the areas of business, publicity, or the individual’s need for recognition, appreciation, respect, and acknowledgement.

I find that Chiron in the 10th house folks usually didn’t receive much recognition or respect in childhood, especially concerning their purpose and what they want to do with their lives.

For example, a Chiron in the 10th house child might have wanted to be an astronaut, but they were shot down by their parents for having “too large” of dreams.

Because of these lessons, the individual will either try to force it at all costs (to gain fame, notoriety, or business success) or they will feel far too nervous to even try.

Regardless of which path Chiron in the 10th house people take, there is a deep self-esteem wound that was caused when they were told they weren’t good enough to try or to succeed.

Chiron in the 11th House

Chiron in the 11th house is a wound relating to individuality and group participation. It shows up in the areas of groups, friends, or the community in general.

The person with Chiron in the 11th house will avoid expressing original ideas because they fear that they won’t be accepted or understood. They might feel enslaved by society in general or the way that groups think. They feel that they must conform “or else.”

Even though the individual might conform on the outside, they struggle to understand why the group works as it does. Their sense of individualism bleeds through and speaks to them.

Alternatively, the individual might reject society completely. They feel alienated because they think differently, so they can easily become rebellious or destructive with the intention to hurt others as they have been wounded.

If you have Chiron in the 11th house, the goal is to avoid either extreme and to instead see what you do have in common with society. You have these unique views for a reason and you were sent here to share them and to transform the earth.

How can you help by expressing your own needs and inner self in a positive and constructive way? What can you offer? Is there a group that will accept you because you bring something special to the table?

Any individual with Chiron in the 11th house is capable of contributing quite a lot of good to society. Healing comes from reconciling individual needs with those of society and expressing both in a positive and constructive way.

Ultimately, any individual with Chiron in the 11th house will learn how to be an individual within a group and avoid losing themselves.

Chiron in the 12th House

If you have Chiron in the 12th house, you may work very hard to hide your wound away. The wound might even be unconscious, but when it does come to the surface, you feel the urgent need to stuff it back down.

At the same time, you may cling to your wound with Chiron in the 12th house. These wounds often come from a past life, and it might feel like the wound is an essential part of who you are.

More than any other placement, Chiron in the 12th house can be pretty dark and scary. The wound often revolves around fear from a past life and trauma that is buried in your unconscious mind.

Chiron in the 12th house can indicate either mental illness or psychism. These traits are often ancestral; the wound itself may even be ancestral.

Alternatively, this Chiron in the 12th house placement can also have to do with an incarceration of some kind. This could be prison of the mind, body, or spirit.

So there you have it: Chiron in the houses. Questions or comments about your Chiron placement? Drop a line in the comments and I’m always happy to help!

Juno Astrology Aspects In Synastry

Juno Astrology Aspects In Synastry

Juno aspects seem minor to many astrologers, but these aspects can tell you a lot about the qualities that your relationship has or might have, especially in a long-term relationship.

When you’re looking at Juno aspects with a partner, you’ll want to look specifically at Juno aspects in synastry. This means that you’re using both of your charts and looking at the aspects between them.

Today I’m going over every single aspect you might have between Juno and other planets or points in a synastry chart!

If you have difficult aspects, don’t get too upset – these aspects don’t mean that the relationship is doomed. Sure, sometimes aspects to Pluto, Saturn, etc. can indicate control or abuse, but other times these aspects indicate an opportunity to grow if both partners are willing.

No one in the world has a perfect chart. We will always have some difficult aspects with the person who we choose to be with long-term. These aspects help to grow and also create glue in a relationship. In my opinion, no astrological chart will work without at least a few difficult aspects to create tension.

Difficult aspects also help us to learn what we are here to learn. These aspects aid us in our soul journey.

Only you know if the hard aspects in your synastry chart indicate a serious problem that means you need to leave the relationship, or an opportunity to grow and learn.

Juno aspects show both karmic soul contracts and the ways you can learn in this relationship.

Juno Aspects to the Sun

Sun Conjunct Juno/Sun Trine Juno Synastry

With both sun conjunct Juno and sun trine Juno in synastry, the kind of partner the Juno person needs is fundamentally who the Sun person is. This relationship is an easy pairing and can often signify marriage.

If you have sun conjunct Juno or sun trine Juno in a synastry chart, pursue that relationship for sure!

Sun Sextile Juno Synastry

With sun sextile Juno in synastry, the Sun person is decently compatible with the energy that the Juno person needs in a relationship, although this is not necessarily a past life connection. The personality connection is definitely there, but it must be developed.

There is an opportunity to further develop this relationship and for it to be successful with sun sextile Juno in synastry.

Sun Opposition Juno Synastry

Sun opposition Juno in synastry creates a draw. However, there can be the issue of selfishness (usually of the Sun person, although not always), that needs to be worked through before the relationship can flourish.

I find that the sun opposition Juno aspect can create a lot of attraction but also a bit of tension when the personalities aren’t compatible with what the partners need out of a marriage.

Sun Square Juno Synastry

Something about the way that the sun person fundamentally is causes a clash between the two partners, as well as issues for the Juno person with the sun square Juno aspect in synastry.

Sun square Juno in synastry can also causes a magnetism that initially draws the couple together. This is a very dynamic aspect.

You may both feel that the other is selfish in the relationship and will need to work through ego issues. You can feel as though you’re “pitted against” each other, so a good deal of ego work is necessary for the relationship to work.

Juno Aspects to the Moon

Moon Conjunct Juno Synastry

The moon conjunct Juno relationship shows that the Juno person is perfectly aligned with the emotions of the moon person.

This is a very auspicious aspect for a long term relationship, because the Juno person will be so compatible with and understanding of the moon person’s emotions. Neither party often feels neglected, but instead emotionally supported.

Moon conjunct Juno in synastry shows a lot of emotional intelligence!

Moon Trine Juno Synastry

With moon trine Juno in synastry, both parties connect on a deep, emotional level, and know how to support each other in a healthy way.

The relationship is very soft and loving. Both people may nurture the other through difficult childhood issues that come up.

Moon Sextile Juno Synastry

There is an opportunity for both partners to learn how the other needs nurture and emotional support. Moon sextile Juno in synastry is an easy aspect, but it will take a bit of work for each of the partners to learn the other.

Moon Opposition Juno Synastry

With moon opposition Juno in synastry, the moon person’s emotions are at odd with what the Juno person needs in a relationship to be supported.

The Juno individual doesn’t not know how to comfort the moon person and may either turn away or become a sort of surrogate parent by being over-involved in the moon person’s emotions. They don’t have healthy emotional boundaries.

This aspect can occasionally (certainly not always) represent a push-pull between the spouse and the mother moon person’s mother.

Alternatively, the moon person may cause emotional upheaval in the relationship, or there may be emotional coldness in the relationship.

Moon Square Juno Synastry

With the moon square Juno synastry aspect, the moon person’s emotions will clash with what the Juno person is looking for in a relationship. The moon person may be up and down while the Juno person is looking for emotional stability, or vice-versa.

Occasionally, mental illness dominates the relationship, or the relationship is emotionally cold.

Sometimes, this aspect can mean that the moon person’s mother causes issues in the relationship.

Juno Aspects to Mercury

Mercury Conjunct Juno Synastry

With the Mercury conjunct Juno synastry aspect, the Mercury person has great mental capacity and thinks/communicates in a way that fits perfectly with the kind of relationship the Juno person needs.

Communication is flawless and easy in this relationship! Mercury conjunct Juno in synastry is a great aspect, especially for couples who really value communication and intelligence.

Mercury Trine Juno Synastry

Communication will be easy and natural between the couple with the Mercury trine Juno synastry aspect. They may also enjoy talking about intellectual subjects.

The Mercury trine Juno aspect makes it really easy to get along and talk about the big topics. Look to the signs that both planets are in; these are the areas where you will especially enjoy communication and intellectual discussion as a couple.

Mercury Sextile Juno Synastry

While communication might not be flawless at first with the Mercury sextile Juno synastry aspect, if the couple is willing to work on it, then there is an opportunity for great communication in this relationship.

Both parties will need to learn how the other thinks and operates in a logical sense.

Mercury Opposition Juno Synastry

There will be some communication issues in this relationship with the Mercury opposition Juno synastry aspect; both people may communicate in totally opposite ways, specifically in this relationship.

There will need to be a meeting in the middle for the relationship to flourish. Couples’ therapy can help a lot with the Mercury opposition Juno aspect because it will teach partners how to communicate in a way that the other understands.

Mercury Square Juno Synastry

There are big communication problems with this Mercury square Juno synastry aspect. The partners may communicate in vastly different ways, feel like they’re always on different planes, talk over each other, or simply not communicate.

There must a willingness from both parties to resolve these differences. Again, couples’ therapy or learning about communication can help.

I do find that there is a lot of anger with the Mercury square Juno synastry aspect that needs to be worked through before real communication can happen.

Juno Aspects to Venus

Venus Conjunct Juno Synastry

With the Venus conjunct Juno synastry aspect, the Venus person seems to be exactly what the Juno person needs when they first meet.

There is definitely an aura of love, but this aspect does not necessarily speak to a long lasting relationship; this is more of a positive initial attraction that can jumpstart a relationship.

Regardless, the Venus conjunct Juno synastry aspect is always beneficial in any relationship as it creates an aura of beauty and love.

Venus Trine Juno Synastry

With the Venus trine Juno synastry aspect, the Venus person has qualities that are attractive to the Juno person, but also possesses qualities that can give the Juno person the longterm relationship they need.

This is a very beneficial aspect that creates harmonious relationships!

Venus Sextile Juno Synastry

Like most relationships, this will take a bit of work. Venus sextile Juno isn’t instant, but it’s a positive aspect to have in a long-term relationship.

Venus Opposition Juno Synastry

The Venus opposition Juno synastry aspect means that the kind of individual the Juno person will be attracted to has the opposite qualities of those that they need for their long term relationship.

The Juno person will struggle between attraction and longterm relationship value. May be some sexual frustration in the relationship after time.

Venus opposition Juno in synastry is a tough aspect to have, but if both partners can work to develop the positive Juno qualities that they need, it can work over time.

Venus Square Juno Synastry

With Venus square Juno in synastry, the kind of person you will be attracted to does not have qualities that will create a lasting relationship. You may be attracted to people who don’t have “husband” or “wife” qualities.

For example, people with the Venus square Juno aspect are often attracted to partners who are inappropriate or immature, even though they may want a family and someone stable. They might be attracted to those who are fun-loving but cheat when they’re looking for someone trustworthy.

Look to the signs involved in this Venus square Juno aspect in order to see what qualities you specifically need.

Juno Aspects to Mars

Mars Conjunct Juno Synastry

The Mars conjunct Juno synastry aspect can create a fun and fiery relationship. These people typically have a lot of drive and might have a passionate sex life.

Mars Trine Juno Synastry

The Mars trine Juno synastry aspect creates very sexual relationship in a good way.

This relationship can often start off quickly and passionately, but without other aspects, it will burn out just as quickly.

There is a lot of energy and passion with the Mars trine Juno aspect. The sexual passion might refuel both partners when there is tension in other areas of the relationship.

Mars Sextile Juno Synastry

If you have the Mars sextile Juno synastry aspect in a relationship, there is an opportunity to generate a good deal of passion, if you choose to put the energy in. It isn’t something that happens naturally, but the opportunity is there.

There is also an opportunity for a really passionate sex life, once each partner figures out what the other likes.

Mars Opposition Juno Synastry

The Mars opposition Juno synastry aspect in a relationship can become a tug of war instead of a romance. It can also become a competition, which will eventually destroy any positive bonds the couple has.

The couple with the Mars opposition Juno synastry aspect might feel like they’re always seeing different point of views. There’s a lot of energy in the relationship, but it can cause fights instead of solving them. This might be a love-hate relationship that is difficult for both people to leave.

This couple needs to learn how to express their feelings in a calm, direct manner.

Mars Square Juno Synastry

With the Mars square Juno synastry aspect, the partners may dominate each other. There can be a lot of aggression in this relationship in the form of hot-tempered arguments.

Alternatively, one person may start to feel confined in this relationship.

Juno Aspects to Jupiter

Jupiter Conjunct Juno Synastry

With the Jupiter conjunct Juno synastry aspect, the partners’ values are both perfectly in-line. They also may agree on religion or beliefs, at least when it comes to the relationship.

Jupiter Trine Juno Synastry

With the Jupiter trine Juno synastry aspect, the partners’ values are very similar. The relationship works when it comes to values.

Jupiter Sextile Juno Synastry

With Jupiter sextile Juno in synastry, there is an opportunity to develop similar values and figure out what each person’s values are together.

Jupiter Opposition Juno Synastry

The values of the Jupiter person oppose what values the Juno person wants in a relationship with the Jupiter opposition Juno synastry aspect.

The signs of each planet will you show you exactly what values are not in line. With certain signs and placements, this can signal infidelity, but not always.

Jupiter Square Juno Synastry

With the Jupiter square Juno synastry aspect, there is a complete clash between the types of values that the partners have, especially when it comes to a relationship. They may want and value different things in a partnership. For this relationship to work, there needs to be a compromise and a willingness to listen.

Juno Aspects to Saturn

Saturn Conjunct Juno Synastry

With Saturn conjunct Juno in synastry, the relationship is karmic. The partners may be very committed because the energy feels intense.

Sometimes, one partner may be older or wiser. Other times, one partner is just seen as older or more mature.

With Saturn conjunct Juno, the Juno person may have blind trust in the Saturn person.

Saturn Trine Juno Synastry

The Saturn trine Juno synastry aspect indicates a stable marriage. It can also mean that the marriage is paying off a karmic debt (that the partners created together in a past life), or that the marriage is one society approves of.

Saturn trine Juno almost always indicates a relationship that is karmically earned and that is most likely very committed.

Saturn Sextile Juno Synastry

With Saturn sextile Juno in synastry, there is an opportunity to pay off karma. There is also an opportunity for the partners to develop something stable and mature.

Saturn Opposition Juno Synastry

Saturn opposition Juno in synastry means that the responsibilities that the Saturn person has or imposes on the Juno person are the opposite of what the Juno person needs in a relationship.

The Saturn person may be a strong force that holds the Juno person down. This can be either through restrictions (personal, societal, etc.) or through control.

Saturn Square Juno Synastry

Saturn square Juno in synastry means that there is a possibility for both people to create negative karma in this relationship. Alternatively, it could be a karmic relationship that already exists, but there is not a possibility to heal the relationship fully in this lifetime (although some work can be done). This is probably a large karmic wound.

The Saturn square Juno aspect can also mean that one person’s limiting beliefs will hinder the spiritual growth of the relationship, or that one person is making a spiritually “bad” marriage in order to gain security such as money or status.

Sometimes, the Juno person will stay in the relationship because of fear or abandonment issues for far too long.

There can be a mysterious magnetism between these two partners, but they need to also become grounded in the relationship and figure out what’s real.

Neptune Sextile Juno Synastry

With Neptune sextile Juno in synastry, there is an opportunity for both partners to develop a spiritual relationship that transcends the typical physical marriage. There is also an opportunity to develop a type of communication that is emotional and intuitive instead of just logical.

At first, you may feel that you’ve found just what you’re looking for in a relationship, but you probably put each other on a pedestal if you have Neptune sextile Juno. This needs to be overcome for the relationship to be healthy and grounded.

Neptune Opposition Juno Synastry

With Neptune opposition Juno in synastry, there is a tendency to see one person (or for both people to see each other) as opposite from who they truly are. It is difficult for people in this relationship to see the truth.

In reality, the needs and agendas of both partners may not match up in some ways, although they probably wear rose-colored glasses at first.

Partners may stay in the Neptune opposition Juno relationship and try to convince themselves that it’s working even when it’s not. Both partners need to learn how to cope with reality and let go of delusions.

Neptune Square Juno Synastry

Typically, the Pluto person has some control over the Juno person, but not always (the roles are sometimes reversed depending on the sign Juno is in).

Juno Aspects to Chiron

Juno Opposition Juno Synastry

With Juno opposition Juno in synastry, the couple might be initially attracted to each other, but they’re often incompatible on a deep level.

This is because both people want opposite things from a relationship and from their partner. They each have needs that the other can’t understand.

The only way this Juno opposition Juno relationship can work is if each partner is willing to sacrifice some of the things that they want in a relationship without becoming resentful.

Juno Square Juno Synastry

Juno Aspects to Ceres

Ceres Conjunct Juno Synastry

Ceres Trine Juno Synastry

Ceres Sextile Juno Synastry

There is an opportunity for each person to teach the other how to nurture each other as well as themselves. Each person needs to develop their nurturing skills, but this Ceres sextile Juno relationship can help them to do so.

Ceres Opposition Juno Synastry

With Ceres opposition Juno in synastry, the Juno person attempts to nurture the Ceres person is a way completely opposite of what the Ceres person actually needs.

The Juno person will need to put in quite a bit of work to learn how to nurture the Ceres person in a way that works for them.

Ceres Square Juno Synastry

With Ceres square Juno in synastry, there is a misunderstanding between the two people concerning how they nurture each other.

When one partner is feeling badly, the other partner either does not pick up on the emotions or is incapable of giving comfort in a way that the person needs.

Ceres square Juno is a difficult aspect, but it is possible to work through it if the partners are willing to learn exactly how the other needs to be nurtured.

Juno Aspects to the North Node

Juno Conjunct North Node Synastry

With Juno conjunct North Node, the North Node person needs this kind of relationship in order to achieve their soul’s purpose. This is a very beneficial relationship for both people!

Juno Trine North Node Synastry

Juno trine North Node is almost karmic in nature. Both people will grow and learn through this marriage and it happens for a reason.

Juno Sextile North Node Synastry

Juno sextile North Node indicates an opportunity to grow through marriage and for the North Node person to learn their lessons through the relationship.

Juno Opposition North Node Synastry

With Juno opposition North Node, you have a karmic bond from a past life that you are paying off. This will impede the North Node person from moving forward, unless you are able to transmit this bond into something new and grow from your mistakes.

This placement means that there is an opportunity to grow together and to right your wrongs.

Juno opposition North Node also means that there is potential for this to be a lifetime soul contract.

Juno Square North Node Synastry

Juno square North Node means that the kind of commitment that you naturally want to make will actually hinder your spiritual progress in the world.

These two areas will be at odds with each other. How much this impacts you will depend on how important your relationship is for your growth. Look to your North Node sign and house for more information on that.

Juno Aspects to the South Node

Juno Conjunct South Node Synastry

Juno conjunct South Node in synastry means that there was a past life marriage or relationship between the parties. This is a karmic union to repay past life debts to each other.

How the relationship goes will depend on how well both parties are able to learn from their past life mistakes. It might be helpful to learn more about the past life and figure out exactly what the karmic bond is.

There is potential for this to be a lifetime soul contract.

Juno Trine South Node Synastry

Juno trine South Node means that the values that the South Node person brings from a past life are understood and empathized with by the Juno person.

This is a harmonious relationship in these areas and the Juno person will not be off-put by the past life values that the South Node person shows.

Juno Sextile South Node Synastry

Juno sextile South Node is almost karmic in nature; both people will learn to grow through this marriage or relationship. It has been set up for a reason.

Juno Opposition South Node Synastry

Juno opposition South Node in synastry will push the South Node person to grow.

The relationship may not be similar to what the South Node person is used to, but it will be important for his/her growth. This is actually a good placement if the South Node person is willing to do the work.

Juno Square South Node Synastry

Juno square South Node in synastry means that the kind of commitment that you both naturally want will actually hinder your spiritual progress in the world.

Your values behind commitment and your spiritual purpose are at odds with each other.

Juno Aspects to the Ascendant

Juno Conjunct Ascendant & Juno Opposition Descendant Synastry

Juno conjunct the ascendant or Juno opposition the descendant creates instant attraction. It’s a great aspect right off the bat!

The Ascendant person may come to resent the fact that the Juno person does not embody more qualities of their Descendant over time, unless the Juno person has these qualities in the rest of their chart.

Juno Trine Ascendant Synastry

Juno trine ascendant in synastry indicates an immediate attraction, probably from knowing each other in a past life. There is also an opportunity for each person to uncover their shadow sides in this relationship.

Juno Sextile Ascendant Synastry

Juno sextile ascendant in synastry indicates an opportunity for attraction, if both partners act upon it and begin dating. It isn’t super strong at first, but it can grow quickly with a bit of effort and time.

Juno Opposition Ascendant & Juno Conjunct Descendant Synastry

Juno opposition ascendant (which is the same as Juno conjunct descendant) in synastry is the “ideal relationship.”

This sign shows up a lot in successful marriages. The Juno person will embody the traits that the ascendant person feels they need the most.

Juno Square Ascendant Synastry

Juno square ascendant in synastry can mean that there isn’t an instant attraction. There isn’t much possibility of these people even wanting to get together unless other placements in the chart do the work for them, at least initially.

Juno Aspects to the Midheaven

Juno Conjunct Midheaven Synastry

This relationship will help the Midheaven person fulfill their purposes in the career world; this will be a main aspect of the relationship.

With the Juno conjunct Midheaven aspect in synastry, both partners are very invested in their public image. Their marriage or partnership may be integral to their public image. The most obvious example of this is the President and First Lady, who need their marriage in order to maintain their image.

Juno Trine Midheaven Synastry

The Juno trine Midheaven relationship will aid the Midheaven person in their career.

Juno Sextile Midheaven Synastry

With Juno sextile Midheaven, there is an opportunity for this relationship to help the Midheaven person define their public image through the process of the partnership.

Juno Opposition and Square Midheaven Synastry

With both Juno opposition Midheaven and Juno square Midheaven, the relationship with the Juno person will be the opposite of what the Midheaven person needs for their career.

This can be either detrimental or beneficial for the Midheaven person, depending on whether they’re in the right career or not.

Juno Aspects to Lilith

Juno Conjunct Lilith Synastry

The Juno conjunct Lilith aspect in synastry will fulfill the Lilith person’s deepest, darkest desires. There will probably be some aspect of this relationship that is great for the Lilith person sexually, but it will also force them to examine what they truly desire and to look at their darker natures.

Juno Trine Lilith Synastry

This Juno trine Lilith relationship will fulfill some of the Lilith’s person’s desires, although this is more of a “nice extra” in the relationship and will not be a dominant aspect of the relationship.

Juno Sextile Lilith Synastry

There is an opportunity for this Juno sextile Lilith relationship to fulfill the Lilith’s person’s desires, but both partners may need to do some work to get it there.

Juno Opposition Lilith Synastry

The relationship will have have many qualities that the Juno person needs, but it will not fulfill the desires of the Lilith person at a subconscious level. These two needs will oppose each other.

Juno Square Lilith Synastry

With Juno square Lilith, there will be a clash between what the Juno person needs in a relationship and what the Lilith person desires. This can create a spark, or it can cause the relationship to slowly deteriorate as both people feel that their needs are not being filled. In the end, the Lilith person is more likely to feel unfulfilled.

Chiron In Capricorn: The Wound Of Recognition

Chiron In Capricorn: The Wound Of Recognition

Chiron shows our most challenging wounds. Chiron in Capricorn is the wound of recognition, but it can bleed into many areas of your life and is not just job-related.

Chiron is always very clear. It would be almost impossible for you to not see your wound. Every so often, you are reminded that your wound exists; this feels painful but is actually beneficial because this will force you to heal the wound.

Chiron in Capricorn is especially hard to forget because it’s all about society and being around other people.

The Chiron In Capricorn Wound

This Chiron in Capricorn wound is all about your need for achievement. You feel unrecognized, unnoticed, and unheard, no matter how hard you try.

You probably feel as though you just fade into the background, especially in the area of the house where you Chiron sits.

This Chironic wounds means that all you really want is respect. You just want to be noticed and heard, but this is also the one thing you can never seem to get.

How The Chironic Wound Will Show Itself

If you have Chiron in Capricorn, you probably work really hard to try and achieve some sort of social status or public well-being.

This doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re a social climber. You might just be super socially conscious of what you say and how you say it, do a lot for the general public, work really hard in your career to try and get noticed, etc. A lot of this will of course depend on the house that your Chiron sits in.

With Chiron in Capricorn, you’re really ambitious in some way, but you get wounded over and over when your efforts go unrecognized. You constantly feel like a failure.

Chiron in Capricorn won’t be very obvious to other people unless they look closely at you. To others, you tend to look like a hardworking individual, but you’re trying so hard because you’re in pain.

Sometimes, those with Chiron in Capricorn might give up. This will typically happen later in life. They might resign themselves to a life of obscurity, but could also fall into depression or addictions because they haven’t yet worked through the wound.

I also find that those with Chiron in Capricorn are really focused on structure. They believe that if they give their life enough structure then they will achieve what they desire.

Because of this belief, Chiron in Capricorn folks might either control others (especially in the house of their Chiron) or put themselves in a position to be controlled by others.

For example, the Chiron in Capricorn person may control their spouse, their children, their schedule, their job, etc., or they may found a spouse who controls them or sign up for a career in a controlling environment, like the military.

Most of these control issues will resolve themselves as the Chiron in Capricorn person works through the core wound.

Where Does The Chiron In Capricorn Wound Come From?

The Chiron in Capricorn wound can be developed a lot of different ways.

Many individuals develop this wound in childhood because they are never recognized or noticed by the adults around them. They aren’t given a voice, and their opinions don’t matter. They just can’t seem to catch up to everyone else.

Alternatively, this wound might have been developed in a past life. The individual might have needed to be noticed; it was a matter of life and death. For example, one might have worked for a King and been put to death or shunned if the individual wasn’t well-liked.

Most often, I find that this wound comes from some combination of both types of traumas.

How to Heal Chiron in Capricorn

Chiron in Capricorn is all about excelling in the eyes of others. This is because you are looking for acceptance and esteem from others yet you don’t have that for yourself.

The healing path is to learn to listen to your own voice instead of what society tells you success and acceptance looks like.

If you have Chiron in Capricorn, you need to spend time learning to hear the soul of your spirit. Your consciousness is fragmented and only you can assimilate it.

When you learn to speak to your inner voice, you will discovery what your true purpose on earth is.

Your need for control will dissipate when you realize that you have control over your own soul and your own path. Working with energy can help those with Chiron in Capricorn learn how to harness control in a positive and powerful way.

Chiron In Sagittarius: The Wound Of Belief

Chiron In Sagittarius: The Wound Of Belief

Chiron in the natal chart shows us our deepest, darkest wounds. Chiron in Sagittarius is an especially tricky placement because it’s all about our beliefs and our sense of meaning.

Almost any Chiron placement is impossible to escape. Unlike Saturn, Chiron will show up over and over, because Chiron isn’t a restriction but is instead a wound that needs healing. The only way you’ll notice it is if the wound is right in your face.

Because our Chiron signs can make our lives so painful, I recommend figuring yours out and working on it as soon as possible. All Chiron signs have some really great qualities if we’re able to work through the pain of the wound.

The Chiron In Sagittarius Wound

The Chiron in Sagittarius wound is a trauma to your belief and sense of meaning. You have been wounded (in a past life or in childhood) in a way that makes it really difficult for you to truly believe in anything.

Even though you’re probably very good at logically thinking about beliefs, you might feel like you’re on a never-ending search to actually discover your own. Nothing ever feels permanent; you just don’t know what the purpose of life really is, no matter how hard you try.

The Chiron in Sagittarius wound is all about disconnection. You feel disconnected from your beliefs, yet you don’t even know what they really are. You just can’t figure out what it “all means.”

You might feel like life is totally meaningless and pointless, or instead you may think there is a “point” to life, but you just can’t figure out what it is.

How The Chironic Wound Will Show Itself

The Chiron in Sagittarius wound can show up in a lot of different ways (depending on the house, the aspects, and the rest of your chart), but there are a few key pointers that you’ll usually see in anyone’s chart with this placement.

This can manifest in a few different ways.

In the first scenario, you might avoid thinking about a higher power. You feel that life is meaningless and you just can’t find purpose in any of it, so you choose to simply ignore it.

You may shut off a part of your nature in order to stop “big picture thinking” from happening. You may also feel bitter that there “isn’t” anything out there. This is the atheist who is angry at God for not existing.

Alternatively, you go to any lengths in order to find meaning. You might rely on others for answers and information, but you can never really use the information that you do get constructively. You might feel like nothing assimilates for you.

Sometimes, these people spend their entire lives searching for the answer. Other times, they become fanatical about religion or other belief systems, even though they don’t feel that any one system answers all of their questions deep down.

I find that people with Chiron in Sagittarius typically don’t like to be boxed in or tied down, especially in the area of the house that Chiron sits in. This is usually because they already feel boxed in by the “meaning” of life, so they can’t handle any more restrictions from outside sources.

Where Does The Chiron In Sagittarius Wound Come From?

Typically, the Chiron in Sagittarius wound comes from a past life trauma that caused you to stop believing in whatever it is you felt passionately about.

This could be quite literally any kind of trauma. Whatever happened to you, the key issue is that you thought that the trauma happened because God, the Universe, or your belief system in general wasn’t there for you. You felt that you were left alone, so it must not be real.

Alternatively, you might have been taught during your childhood that there is nothing out there or that you can’t rely on beliefs or religion. You might have searched for something without ever finding it.

How to Heal Chiron in Sagittarius

To heal Chiron in Sagittarius, you must first recognize that you’re searching for meaning through philosophy or religion, when really what you seek is a connection with your Higher Self.

Contrary to the title, your Higher Self isn’t far away and above, but within you.

You struggle to assimilate your beliefs not because belief systems aren’t real, but because the pieces of your own self are not yet assimilated.

I recommend that you work on assimilating yourself through Inner Child and Higher Self work. You have many different parts of you that feel separate but can come together with a bit of work.

The other thing that may help is to recognize that life is a journey. Our purpose on Earth is not to reach a destination, but to continue to learn until we grow old.

Even if your Chiron takes you on a lifelong journey to find out what is real out there, it’s okay. Learning to recognize that the journey is beautiful will help you to accept your Chiron while you work on your trauma.

Mercury Conjunct Venus: Natal, Transit, and Synastry

Mercury Conjunct Venus: Natal, Transit, and Synastry

Mercury is all about the mind while Venus is all about beauty and pleasure. The Mercury conjunct Venus aspect quite literally means mental pleasure, so it’s an aspect that many people appreciate!

A conjunction means that two planets sit about 5 degrees or less (sometimes 8 degrees or less, depending on the type of software you use) from each other. The energy of the two planets works together so it can be very hard to separate them. Typically, a conjunction is the strongest aspect in the natal chart.

Mercury and Venus are both personal planets, so this conjunction will show up quite a bit in your everyday life. Mercury rules Gemini and Virgo; Venus rules Taurus and Libra. These signs are an interesting mix of air and earth elements together.

The Mercury conjunct Venus aspect will show up very differently if it’s in your natal chart than it will if this is a transiting aspect or an aspect in synastry.

For this reason, I’m breaking this blog post down into three sections: natal, transit, and in synastry. Feel free to scroll down to the section that applies to you!

Mercury Conjunct Venus Natal:

If you have the Mercury conjunct Venus aspect in your natal chart, you are charming, poetic, refined, and polite. This is a true “Libran” aspect that makes you intellectual yet warm.

You might have an appreciation for the arts with this aspect. I find that many of these natives enjoy painting, writing, screenplays, music, or any other form of art. Sometimes, they do this as a career, while other times it’s a hobby or outlet for self-expression.

If you have this aspect in your chart, you are extremely diplomatic but you still appear warm. You really have the perfect temperament to appeal to others. This is a natural gift bestowed in your birth chart.

Oddly enough, you might come off as a bit delicate somehow. Even though Mercury conjunct Venus people are typically strong and are smart, cunning, and gregarious, they also have a delicate air that’s hard to explain. It endears people to you so it definitely isn’t a bad thing!

You are attracted (romantically) to people who use their minds; intelligence is extremely interesting to you. You need to connect mentally on some level.

You also tend to attract these intellectual types to you. If there are other positive aspects (such as trines and sextiles) to the Mercury conjunct Venus aspect, then this will be a positive thing, but if there are squares, you may tend to attract conniving partners or those who are “too smart for their own good.”

You probably value everyone’s opinions. You never think in black and white coloring; you’re willing to hear people out and give others the chance to speak or offer suggestions before you make a decision.

This placement means that you tend to intellectualize or rationalize your feelings. Even though you love all things beautiful, it can be hard for you to really process your emotions on a deeper level than simply intellectual processing.

You have a talent for diplomacy with Mercury conjunct Venus. You choose your words carefully, often because you know what the other person wants to hear, but this can make people feel that you’re not genuine. If you want to lie, you’re probably pretty good at it.

You may also be talented at writing, speaking, or other forms of communication, but this will depend mainly on the sign and the house the Mercury conjunct Venus aspect sits in.

To others, you seem like you have good judgment, whether or not this is true. It’s typically easy for people to trust you, at least at first, because you come off as graceful and fair.

You might be very creative and can sometimes use your ingenuity and intellectual graces to come up with new ways to earn money. Your tactfulness can help you exceed as a diplomat or political if you should choose that career path. These people are never rude and do extremely well around strangers!

Alternatively, these folks can be great salespeople. They also excel in any forward people-facing position, but sometimes Mercury conjunct Venus folks appreciate the arts and would rather stay home and create.

You’ll find that this conjunction doesn’t necessarily dictate your life’s career path, but it can shed some light on the qualities that can assist you in achieving your dreams.

In bed, you might especially enjoy verbal communication. You need to verbally know how your lover is feeling. Again, it can be hard for you to drop down into your feelings and let your mind go, so you need to find a way to bridge the gap.

As always, look at the sign and the house that the conjunction sits in. Mercury conjunct Venus in the 7th house will show up mainly in relationships, but this aspect in the 2nd house means that you can easily use this conjunct to acquire money and wealth.

Mercury Conjunct Venus Transit:

When a Mercury conjunct Venus transit is going on, people are more logically creative. If this seems like an oxymoron, don’t worry: I’ll explain it all!

Mercury is the sign of intellect and of mental knowledge, but Venus rules love, creativity, and all things beautiful. When there’s a Mercury conjunct Venus transit going on, we will all feel more creative in a way that’s productive.

For example, you might be able to come up with a new ideal that is the exact solution you’ve been seeking. Your creativity helped you to come up with the idea, not your intellect, but it is your enhanced logic that will put it into effect.

The Mercury conjunct Venus transit is a great time to work hard if you have been stuck on something for a while! You can expect to get brilliant ideas that simply aren’t natural for you.

When the Mercury conjunct Venus transit is happening, it’s a great time for socializing. Everyone will be more outgoing and more tactful. I find that this is a wonderful transit for large group events!

It’s also a great time to negotiate any new deal or bargain. If you’re working on negotiating anything, wait until the Mercury conjunct Venus transit if possible. I know that you can’t always put off big matters until the astrology is right, but this is a really good transit for these types of deals.

The Mercury conjunct Venus transit is also a great time to close deals. Most of the time, both parties feel very satisfied with what they get. For example, if you’re thinking of dissolving a business relationship with a business partner, the Mercury conjunct Venus transit would be the time to do it.

On a personal level, the Mercury conjunct Venus transit is a great time to start new relationships. Friendships blossom when they begin under this transit because everyone is tactful, polite, and charming.

Romantic relationships also do well when begun under the Mercury conjunct Venus transit. First date conversations will be enjoyable, and the beauty of the other person will be enhanced to each individual’s date.

If you’re planning out your calendar for the Mercury conjunct Venus transit, you probably won’t want to be sitting at home alone on this day. This is a great opportunity to get out and socialize.

Whether you need to use this transit for business or for personal pleasure, almost everyone can gain something during the Mercury conjunct Venus transit!

Mercury Conjunct Venus Synastry:

I find that the Mercury conjunct Venus synastry aspect is usually positive. It helps partners communicate in a way that is pleasant and logical. These people will generally have a fun time together.

Often, the Mercury person in the Mercury conjunct Venus synastry aspect will do more of the talking, but this won’t create a power imbalance: it’s simply a personality difference.

The Venus person will likely be charmed by the Mercury person. Although the Venus person might not listen on a deep level, and might care more about how the Mercury person’s words make them feel, they’re usually happy to be along for the ride.

If both people have good intentions, the Mercury conjunct Venus synastry aspect can be really beneficial! The couple is charmed by each other and generally enjoys each other’s company without trying too hard.

If either party has some sort of ulterior motive, then this aspect can be a bit dangerous. It’s easy to deceive and charm with the Mercury conjunct Venus synastry aspect; this aspect makes it hard for either partner to see what the other is truly thinking. This is especially true if the aspect is in Pisces.

Regardless of the sign, this aspect does make it easy for either partner to deceive the other. This may not cause a problem if neither partner has ulterior motives, but it can still hamper communication.

For example, this aspect makes it hard for the Venus partner to realize when the Mercury partner is hurt (or has hurt feelings) and vice-versa. Even though this couple has a lovely, happy time together, they will need to work on improving communication in order to get to the root of issues.

Alternatively, this aspect can make it difficult for the Venus person to tell the Mercury person what they really think about anything. The Venus person, depending on other aspects, may find themselves going along with everything because they don’t know how to say no.

I find that the Mercury conjunct Venus synastry aspect is usually great at first and gets more difficult as the relationship progresses and the couple requires deeper communication. Traditional communication practice (and sometimes therapy) can help clear this up if both people are willing.

An Introduction To Past Life Astrology

An Introduction To Past Life Astrology

Astrology has become more and more common over the past few years, but so have past life regressions, so it’s surprising that there isn’t a lot of accurate info out there about past life astrology.

When I first began studying astrology, I was most interested in the past life part of the natal chart. There are so many pieces of the birth chart that point to past lives!

It’s not actually that difficult to learn about past life astrology. There are a few key points and planets that will explain your past lives to you; all you’ll need to do is figure out the storyline behind the chart.

Can You See Past Life Astrology In The Birth Chart?

In my opinion, you can see at least some past life astrology information in the birth chart. We’ve all had many lives so of course one birth chart can’t show every past life, but I do find that it shows us the most relevant past lives now.

The Idea Of Karma In The Natal Chart

I find that most past life astrology is directly related to karma. Past life planets, signs, and aspects mainly show up because you have karma in this life. Otherwise, there wouldn’t be a reason for these placements to appear in your chart.

It’s especially useful to learn about past life astrology if you’re also interested in learning about your karma and working through it. The only past lives that show up in your birth chart are the ones that are especially impactful to your life now, mainly because you have karma that still affects you from these lives.

The South Node

The lunar nodes sit directly across from each other in the birth chart and are mathematical points, rather than planets. The nodes are always in exact opposite signs.

Although I love working with both the north node and the south node, I find that the south node is much more important when looking into past life astrology. The north node represents your soul’s purpose and who you are becoming, while the south node represents who you were.

The south node will give you both positive and negative information. It shows the qualities that you bring into this life (from a past life), but it can also give you a lot of clues into who you were in the past life.

First, you’ll want to look at the sign that your south node is in. This will give you some clues into your past life astrology. Even though one sign can mean many different things (e.g. Aries can be a warrior, a self-starter, someone with anger issues, a loner, etc.), the sign gives you a good basis to start learning about a past life.

The Sign:

The sign your south node is in will show how you were in a past life. For example, if your south node is in Aries, you had many Arian qualities such as impatience, anger, impulsivity, etc.

If your south node was in Libra, you may have been passive-aggressive, manipulative, beauty-loving, etc.

Keep in mind that your south node generally indicates the negative qualities that you had in a past life. While you can certainly find the positive qualities in your south node as well, the negative qualities tend to be the ones that stand out.

When you’re looking at your south node, see if you can figure out what kind of person you were and what qualities you had.

The sign your south node is in can also indicate was career or profession you had, although you will

The House:

The house where you south node sits will show where your past life took place, however it will help to combine the house and sign together as you get deeper into past life astrology.

For example, if your south node is in the 11th house, you probably had a life surrounded by a lot of people. If you south node is conjunct Venus, you were either really beautiful (such as a model) and therefore lived your life in the limelight, or you had a romantic relationship that made you the center of attention. I image people who are on the bachelor will have this type of south node in their next lifetimes.

The sign will also influence this. If you have that south node in the 11th house placement but your south node is in Aries, then this will mean that your past life happened surrounded by being, but it was because of your Aries nature. Maybe you were a wrestler or a general in the army.

If your south node is instead in Gemini, then you were surrounded by people due to your words and social skills. You might have been a writer, storyteller, or just generally good at socializing.

Put your south node’s house and sign together and ask yourself: what story does this placement tell?

The Aspects:

Lastly, the aspects your south node is in will give you some pointers about what other elements were involved in your past life.

For example, a square to Venus might indicate a problem in your love life, while a trine to Juno would indicate a well-placed marriage in your past life. Juno aspects typically have to do with a past life marriage.

Trines and sextiles are usually positive, while squares and oppositions indicate difficulty. Conjunctions are the strongest aspect, but they aren’t necessarily good or bad. A conjunction means that your past life was deeply impacted by the planet to which it is conjunct.

The 12th House

The 12th house is also very influential in past life astrology. Each of the houses have a specific meaning, and the 12th house rules the unconscious mind and all things hidden. Of course, this also includes past life astrology.

You can have any planet or asteroid (as well as most points) show up in the 12th house.

Planets in the 12th house will give you a clue as to who you were in a past life. Usually, these planets in the 12th house indicate qualities you had in a recent past life, possibly the life just before the one you’re living now.

The reason for this is that karmic memories sit in the 12th house. When you have no need of karmic memories because you have paid off your karma, then these placements will no longer show up in your chart. So, if you do have placements in the 12th house, this means you have not yet paid off your karma yet, therefore the life is rather recent.

I find that 12th house placements in past life astrology are usually a bit difficult. These placements are inside the walls of the 12th house that were created by fear and guilt. In some way, your own negative feelings about these past life events manifested these walls that have “trapped” the planets in your 12th house.

We often struggle with the planets in our 12th house and with properly expressing them. This is usually because in a past life, we did have these qualities, and they have been karmically limited.

Look at the planets (and the signs that they’re in) that appear in your 12th house and see if you can piece together a storyline about who you may have been in a recent past life as well as the karma that you incurred.

Saturn

Similar to the 12th house, Saturn governs past life karma. The difference is that Saturn indicates a lesson we had in a past life that we did not manage to learn completely. Therefore, we must continue to learn that same lesson in this life.

Saturn will show the limitations of our past life. For example, with Saturn in Capricorn, you were limited in a business-sense in a past life. You probably struggled with your bosses or with advancement, or even with social status, all depending on the house.

In this lifetime, you will see those same struggles pop up in some way. It might not be the same, but the lesson will feel the same.

For past life astrology, I especially recommend looking at squares to Saturn. Saturn alone can be hard to read, but Saturn square Venus is much easily and clearly indicates past life love karma.

Squares to Saturn can also indicate what souls you may see from that same past life. Saturn square Venus, as mentioned, means that you’ll enter into karmic relationships with the same people this time, but Saturn square Mars would indicate that you will run into past life enemies.

Jupiter

Jupiter is one of the past life astrology planets that indicate karmic gifts. Jupiter will show you what you have earned through good deeds in past lives.

While I don’t typically spend a ton of time focusing on Jupiter when I’m doing past life astrology readings (mainly because I think it’s more useful to focus on pain points rather than on the benefits that we already reap), it can be fun to see where you naturally excel.

It can also be really helpful to look at Jupiter and figure out what you did well in a past life. This can give you more clues as to who you were and how you acted.

Planets In Retrograde

Many astrologers focus heavily on planets in retrograde when they’re looking at past life astrology. From the perspective of a past life, any planet in retrograde usually means that some events in that past life were so negative that the energy of this planet is suppressed.

Each planet can have a slightly different meaning which makes planet in retrograde pretty complicated.

Past Life Astrology In A Relationship (Synastry)

I particularly love looking at past like astrology in a synastry chart, which is essentially two charts put together to look at the relationship between two people.

Past life astrology is even more complicated when it comes to looking at synastry charts. I’m excited to write a whole post dedicated just to this at some point, but for now I can give some of the basics.

First of all, conjunctions are the strongest aspect in a synastry chart. Firstly, you’ll want to look for conjuncts between the south node, Saturn, and Jupiter (to any other planets) and try to weave a storyline together about your past life together.

Next, you can look at this same planets and observe squares and trines, which are other strong aspects.

I often find that aspects between Saturn and Juno (the asteroid of marriage) or the south node and Juno.

How To Learn More:

As much as I love past life astrology, it doesn’t give all the answers. I find that past life astrology can help you to construct a storyline about a past life, but how do you know if it’s accurate? How do you flesh out the details?

I like to use other means of divination in order to get more details. My favorite method is to use my pendulum because I’m able to ask a variety of yes/no questions or create charts.

Alternatively, you can use other sources of divination (such as Tarot cards, astrology dice, etc.), or you can simply do a past life regression meditation.

If you looking to learn more from a book, highly recommend this text. You’ll have to get it used but it really is the best out there.

Chiron in Scorpio: The Wound Of Control

Chiron in Scorpio: The Wound Of Control

Chiron in the astrology chart shows us our deepest wounds. Although healing this wound is a lifelong pursuit, the journey to healing the Chironic wound is a key part of our paths that shapes our personalities. Chiron in Scorpio is all about the wound of control.

Most Chiron wounds will be very obvious; these injuries aren’t something we can ignore or hide. It isn’t until we take back personal power that we can truly begin the healing process.

The Chiron in Scorpio wound is especially deep, mostly because the wound comes from a past life trauma.

If you’re just beginning, you’ll need to identify the wound and figure out when the trauma originated before you can begin to heal the wound in an empowering way. Today I’ll be exploring the Chiron in Scorpio wound and ways to find the healing path.

The Chiron In Scorpio Wound

The Chiron in Scorpio wound was caused by a past trauma or abuse. Usually, the Chironic wound relates specifically to control.

This wound is a deep trauma that you carry around without knowing exactly what it is. The Chiron in Scorpio wound creates a control problem that blocks you from developing natural trust and love in relationships.

Because of the Chiron in Scorpio wound, you only trust control instead of trusting positive intentions or authentic love. You can’t understand a world where people don’t control each other.

I find that this wound will often manifest as inner negative talk projected onto the self, the body, or onto other people. These are things that people to do try and run from the fear that the wound creates, although this is often pushed down deep.

This fear will overtake any sense of self and become an integral part of the personality until the Chiron in Scorpio wound is dealt with. Chiron in Scorpio is a very difficult wound to have, but this only makes it more important to deal with the wound in a healthy way.

How The Chironic Wound Will Show Itself

The Chiron in Scorpio wound can manifest in a variety of ways, but there are a few commonalities that show up for most people.

In some sense, the Chiron in Scorpio person will have a total lack of boundaries. This is because they don’t understand healthy relationships.

The wound means that the individual either needs to control others or to be controlled. This can show up physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, or even sexually. I find that these individuals often use sex as a means of power, but control extends well outside the bedroom.

Chiron in Scorpio is the classic controlling partner, but it can also be the partner who gets controlled.

Alternatively, the individual can become paranoid, power hungry, or obsessed with death and darkness. These are all different attempts to control the outcome of something.

There is always some area of the individual’s life where they either require control or give up control. You can learn more about how this happens by looking at the house that Chiron in Scorpio sits in.

For example, if you have Chiron in the 2nd house, you’ll either control your finances and possessions with a tight fist, or you’ll feel controlled by the things you have and/or don’t have.

If you have Chiron in the 7th house, you will either exert power over anyone you’re in a relationship with, or you will enter into relationships where you give up your personal power.

I also find that it takes an extremely long time for anyone with Chiron in Scorpio to trust. Because of this, relationships aren’t easy, regardless of what house Chiron is in.

Those with Chiron in Scorpio don’t really believe in trust. They were hurt so badly in a past life that these beliefs and traumas have followed them for lifetimes. These folks can never really let down their emotional walls because of the deep fear within them.

Where Does The Chiron In Scorpio Wound Come From?

I find that the Chiron in Scorpio wound almost always comes from a deep, painful past life trauma. This trauma will be something really dark and bad.

Depending on the house and placement, it might be physical, sexual, emotional, etc. I’ve seen Chiron in Scorpio placements that indicated past life murder, rape, suicide, torture, exploitation, abandonment, destruction, death, and more. Usually, this trauma involved some sort of control.

The reason that your Chiron in Scorpio manifests in the areas of control is because you felt such a lack of control in your past life while truly terrible things were happening. Although it’s important to explore past lives in order to learn more about your Chiron, it’s also important to move forward in a healthy, positive way. You don’t want to get stuck in the trauma all over again.

How to Heal Chiron in Scorpio

Although you experienced real trauma in a past life, the goal for healing Chiron in Scorpio is to realize that the trauma is no longer happening. You developed fear responses to deal with this trauma, but these responses are not serving you now.

The way to heal is to realize that your power is within you. It’s not necessary to get or give power through other people, because no one can take away the power that is within you, no matter what happens.

I find that most “transactions” of power are just illusions. We have constructed societal power in order to create a hierarchy among humans, but none of this is true in the universal sense. We all own our energy and our souls, and no earthly creature can take those things away from us.

When those with Chiron in Scorpio feel self-empowered, they no longer give away their power or try to overpower others. They simply have no need of either because they have enough power already.

Learning to construct healthy boundaries in all areas (relationships, work, home life, etc.) is a good place to start if you want to find your own power. “Fake it until you make it” really does tend to work for the Chiron in Scorpio individual.

The goal is to eventually see relationships and sex as natural parts of life, as two humans simply relating to each other, not as a mechanism to get or give control.

Those with Chiron in Scorpio need to get out there and “get triggered” while actively working on their boundaries and healing control issues.

Pallas Astrology: How You Solve Problems

Pallas Astrology: How You Solve Problems

I admit it: I have a soft spot for asteroids in the birth chart. Although many astrologers don’t think that asteroids are all that important, I find that asteroids fill in those blank spots where the chart just doesn’t make sense. For me, Pallas astrology is extremely important because it gives so much insight into how we solve problems.

I find that Pallas in astrology shows our source of intelligence, creativity, and personal power. But more than that, Pallas shows how we use these qualities to solve problems and identify patterns.

These Pallas qualities are key abilities that you probably use every single day, at work, in relationships, at school, or at home.

Who Is Pallas In Astrology?

There are various myths about Pallas-Athene. Some consider the asteroid to represent the Titan Pallas, some think it represents the goddess Athena, and still other astrologers believe that the asteroid is a combination of both.

There is much more information on Athena, so most of the qualities of the asteroid Pallas are related to her, rather than the Titan god Pallas. Athena killed Pallas in battle; some believe that she took on some of his qualities, thus the asteroid Pallas represents a mix of both, but is Athenian in nature.

Pallas in astrology is the independent strategist. It represents how we’re able to see patterns, what patterns we recognize, and how we solve puzzles.

I find that Pallas astrology can show so many parts of our intellect. A writer may use Pallas to come up with creative storylines and to piece the story together, while a manager will use Pallas to solve on-the-job problems.

You probably use your Pallas to solve not only job-related problems, but relationship puzzles, day-to-day problems (such as how to organize your closet), and even problems within yourself, like how you feel about a certain situation.

Pallas qualities can be fully conscious, subconscious, or unconscious. We use Pallas to make split second decisions (that we aren’t even aware of), but we also pull from our Pallas sign when we’re making long term decisions, like where to buy a house or how to get a promotion.

Additionally, Pallas can represent the manner in which we respect our opponents. It can even have something to do with how we view the men in our lives, but this isn’t true for every placement, so you’ll have to see if this is true for you.

If you’re someone who takes vengeance, Pallas will show how you do that. For example, someone with Pallas in Aries will get revenge physically, while someone with Pallas in Cancer will get emotional vengeance (maybe through the form of blackmail or guilt).

Pallas will show you how to better solve problems. It will also show what area of your spirituality you need to tap into in order to solve problems more efficiently. Earth signs will solve problems using the senses, fire signs by taking action, air signs through logic and claircognizance, and water signs through psychism and emotions.

In general, Pallas-Athene will give you insight on how you can best strategize, plan, and focus. It can be extremely useful to learn about Pallas astrology for a variety of reasons!

How To Find Pallas In Your Natal Chart:

Pallas probably won’t show up if you download a free chart online because Pallas is an asteroid. Most basic charts won’t take Pallas into account.

My astrology software (I use iPhemeris) does show Pallas; yours may or may not, depending on what software you use.

If you can’t locate Pallas to see what sign and house this asteroid is in on your chart, use this calculator: it’s super accurate!

For reference, this is what the Pallas astrology symbol looks like in your chart:

The Discovery Of Pallas Astrology

The asteroid Pallas was discovered just after Ceres, making it the 2nd asteroid to be discovered in 1802.

Pallas is named after Pallas-Athene, the goddess of wisdom, courage, warfare, strategy, and skill. Pallas is based on a goddess, but as most of us know from mythology, Athena is a strong feminine force to be reckoned with. Although Pallas is technically a feminine asteroid, the manifestation of these qualities is often androgynous in nature.

Pallas-Athene is less aggressive than many other planets, but her wisdom makes her capable of defeating even Mars. Pallas represents the strategy behind warfare rather than the brute strength.

Pallas In The Signs:

I find that your Pallas astrology sign is super important when you’re looking at the chart as a whole.

Because Pallas astrology can be complicated, it might be helpful to first read your Pallas astrology sign (and learn it) before delving into Pallas in the houses, which is below this section.

Pallas In Aries:

If you have Pallas in Aries, you’re adept at solving problems quickly. You’re not very good at pondering an issue for hours; the solution will either come to you or it won’t. Often, the solution might feel pretty random, but you don’t mind trying out different ideas to see what works.

You probably don’t like waiting to solve an issue with Pallas in Aries. Your creativity comes in spurts, so you need to act when you get an idea.

Competition can be the driving force behind your problem-solving abilities. You might feel like your brain gets turned on when you’re facing a competitor.

You’re not afraid to dive in and try the fastest solution. You probably execute your ideas best when you work independently or lead a group (instead of allowing someone else to lead or dictate your actions).

Your intellect and understanding of a situation come through motion. If you feel stuck, get up and move or do something different; you won’t find a solution by simply thinking harder.

The one trouble you may have with Pallas in Aries is lack of follow-through. It’s easy for you to come up with dynamic answers, but much more difficult to see the project through and actually implement the solution.

You might find that it’s easy for you to forget about a problem entirely when you get stuck. Your Pallas astrology wisdom doesn’t extend to planning, which probably isn’t your strong suit (unless your chart has many other planning-friendly aspects).

Pallas in Aries is certainly strong. There is a desire to fight and to win; you’re mentally tough.

Pallas In Taurus:

If you have Pallas in Taurus, you definitely don’t solve problems immediately, but you usually get to the heart of the issue eventually. You need a bit of time to plan and attack a problem, however you won’t stop until it’s solved.

You’re methodical and patient with Pallas in Taurus. Usually, your problem-solving abilities and intelligence are rooted in basic common sense. You recognize patterns over time because they just start to make sense to you.

I think of Pallas in Taurus a bit like a judge. You build on tradition (like a judge rules based on precedence) and are pretty conservative when it comes to how you solve problems. When in doubt, look to the history.

You also use your senses quite a bit to solve problems. Pallas in Taurus is very earthly and grounded; if you’re struggling to solve a problem, try working through the issue using your senses instead of simple logic.

Sometimes, these folks are very good at working with their hands, although this will depend on the rest of the chart.

It’s much easier for Pallas in Taurus people to solve problems when they feel physically safe. These people do need to work on seeing the bigger picture instead of getting stuck in the details.

Pallas In Gemini:

If you have Pallas in Gemini, you definitely have a sharp mind. You may or may not be the smartest person in the room, but you can push at a problem from all sides until you figure out a solution.

Sometimes, those with Pallas in Gemini can be a bit scattered. Again, Pallas in Gemini doesn’t make the most intelligent individual (look to other placements for straight up intellect) but does make the individual sharp and sometimes a bit cunning. These are the people who will go over and over a problem until there’s a clear solution.

With Pallas in Gemini, you’re probably good at multi-tasking. You can easily learn many new things at once. You like to juggle many intellectual and creative problems or you can get bored, or sometimes even depressed.

You may be good at solving problems having to do with words if you have Pallas in Gemini. This can manifest in many ways. Some people with Pallas in Gemini do a ton of research to solve a problem, some write about it until they get it, and others talk it over.

These people can see patterns with words where others cannot, although they may be less gifted in scientific areas.

Opposite viewpoints aren’t a problem to those with Pallas in Gemini. These folks enjoy looking at things from all angles and going over it until they can solve it.

Those with Pallas in Gemini can sometimes turn to drugs or alcohol when bored, although this depends on the other placements as well. It’s important that those with Pallas in Gemini stay mentally stimulated.

If you have Pallas in Gemini, you probably value your creativity and intellect. You might be attracted to these values in others, as well. Being able to speak the truth might be important to you; freedom of speech contributes to your healing process and words are quite important to you.

Depending on the placement, Pallas in Gemini can indicate talent for writing, speaking, reading, poetry, etc.

Pallas In Cancer:

With Pallas in Cancer, you’re good at finding empathetic solutions to problems. You’re very skilled at reading other people’s emotions and understanding emotions in general.

You can easily spot patterns in other people’s relationships due to your emotional intelligence. This may be a natural skill for you or it may have been learned in childhood.

With Pallas in Cancer, you may feel that almost any problem can be solved through looking at the emotions behind the issue. You certainly don’t use straight up logic; it just doesn’t work for you.

You may also solve problems using your intuition with Pallas in Cancer. When you have a hunch about something, you’re often correct, and acting on your gut feeling yields results.

Those with Pallas in Cancer are emotionally intelligent and understand empathy, but this doesn’t necessarily mean that they possess it. At its worst, this placement can be a bit manipulative, but at its best, the individual is full of empathy and emotional intelligence.

These folks are able to make others feeling important or discarded with ease because of how they intuitively understand human reactions and emotions. They are, at their best, observant and responsive of the most basic human needs.

Pallas In Leo:

Pallas in Leo is a really useful placement to have! If you have Pallas in Leo, your intelligence lies in your ability to read other people and respond using your own charisma.

You might be good at making other people laugh or at entertaining. Alternatively, you can easily read what other people want and give it to them without seeming obvious.

Sometimes, these individuals are instead artistically intelligent or into some form of artistic expression.

Pallas in Leo gives you the drive to learn, most likely to manage yourself socially, but it isn’t a naturally intelligence placement.

It might be hard for you to see patterns objectively and view a situation logically outside your own lens. You are, however, very gifted at solving problems using your charisma. You can spin a situation in a way that makes sense for you.

Self-expression, art, creativity, or romance may be very important to you with this placement.

Pallas In Virgo:

If you have Pallas in Virgo, you’re very analytical and practical. You’re great at breaking things down and creating order out of chaos. You analyze a problem, create a solution, and then implement the solution one step at a time until the issue is resolved.

You’re also very good at putting a protocol in place so that the issue doesn’t occur again. With Pallas in Virgo, you can quickly separate the good stuff from the bad stuff and can quickly perceive patterns.

Your Pallas in Virgo placement helps you to bring peace to the work place. You generally run a tight ship, if you’re able to see the bigger picture. One flaw is that you may get too stuck in the details, making it difficult for you to be a leader.

Some individuals with Pallas in Virgo are very successful leaders if they have other placements that allow them to see the big picture. Others are more successful as the right-hand of the boss. These folks are good at seeing the positive qualities in others and putting people in the right positions in the workplace.

Pallas in Virgo individuals can excel in a variety of areas. Some of those folks enjoy manual work or craftsmanship due to their meticulous natures, while others are good at managing mental projects or putting new structures into place. Others still excel in the healing arts because they easily can pick out areas of weakness.

At their worst, those with Pallas in Virgo can be a bit judgmental about how things are done. They often feel that there is a right way and a wrong way to solve a problem, and they are critical of those who solve it “incorrectly.”

If you have Pallas in Virgo, you’re great at recognizing patterns and picking out information. You’re sure to excel if you can choose an area of work where these skills are utilized.

Pallas In Libra:

Pallas in Libra is an especially interesting placement. If you have Pallas in Libra, you seek intellectual balance. You always have to look at both sides of the coin and can’t make a decision without first examining the possible outcomes.

I find that those with Pallas in Libra generally solve problems by deciding what’s fair. Even though they’re good at reading emotions, they won’t involve their own emotions too much in the decision making process.

With Pallas in Libra, you may be willing to repress your needs for the needs of the group. You understand harmony. You can easily perceive social patterns and use them to your advantage intellectually.

When Pallas in Libra is well-aspected, you have a well-balanced mind, but if you see a lot of negative aspects, you may have difficulty finding intellectual balance and problem-solving.

Sometimes, people with Pallas in Libra have a talent for art. They are able to intellectually understand how artwork can be harmonious. These people may be creative in other related fields as well, although much of this will depend on the house placement.

Pallas In Scorpio:

With Pallas in Scorpio, you can see through “smoke and mirrors” to get to the root of any problem. You’re good at solving rather mysterious problems that don’t seem to have a logical explanation.

You are adept at figuring out secrets and obscure patterns. Pallas in Scorpio is certainly the classic mystery detective.

With Pallas in Scorpio, you fixate on a problem with your whole being. The answer to your problems often lies deep within. To solve a problem, it can often help you to retreat until the answer comes to you. It’s almost as if the solutions come straight from the Universe.

Your intelligence is less than logical, but you’re still right quite often. You’re nearly unbeatable when you set your mind to figuring out a problem.

Those with Pallas in Scorpio can easily read between the lines to find the hidden truth. They can get to the core of the matter very quickly. Sometimes, these folks are born healers because they heal the issue itself, not just the symptoms.

In other cases, these folks solve mysteries, are involved in the occult, or simply use their intuition in another manner. They can have a talent for managing finances as well, although this is not a rule and will depend on the combination of other placements.

It can be really difficult to hide anything from someone who has Pallas in Scorpio. They can almost always spot the truth, even when dealing with someone who is a skilled liar.

In retrograde, Pallas in Scorpio is especially stunted compared to other Pallas astrology signs. Their gut instincts may be blocked or they may feel that they can simply never know the truth. Alternatively, they feel that they lack typical logical intelligence but cannot figure out how to make up for this.

Pallas In Sagittarius:

If you have Pallas in Sagittarius, you seek wisdom through philosophy. Even if something makes logical sense, you can’t understand it if it doesn’t feel right to you.

You like to look at the big picture. Your intellect and problem solving abilities are tied up in philosophy, spirituality, or religion. You simply can’t separate the arts from the science.

With Pallas in Sagittarius, you look at the big picture and ignore the small details. You will step up to the plate to solve a problem no matter how large it is. You often have a strong moral compass, which comes from whatever philosophy you base your morals on.

You might enjoy doing research to solve your problems, although you generally look to advice that feels right rather than logical.

Those with Pallas in Sagittarius almost always try to share their wisdom when they have it. They want to shout what they have learned from the rooftops, whether the advice is desired or not.

Pallas In Capricorn:

If you have Pallas in Capricorn, you’re good at following the rules and creating a plan. You believe in law and order, especially in the area (the house) where your Pallas astrology sign sits, and you’re able to work best in a structured environment.

With Pallas in Capricorn, you prefer to work on practical, material problems that you can solve completely. You often understand things better when you can see them physically and you’re good at using your senses to solve issues.

Regardless of the house, you will need a structured mental perception in order to solve a problem. You also need lots of time to adequately plan and then conquer, but you’re good at seeing things through.

If you have Pallas in Capricorn and find yourself stuck, you will discover wisdom in the past. Go through history, philosophy, law, science, etc. and find what has worked before then build on it.

Pallas In Aquarius:

Pallas in Aquarius is an especially interesting placement. With Pallas in Aquarius, your mind is extremely different.

You solve problems in unusual ways; your intelligence isn’t linear, but you can often come up with the right answer out of the blue.

With Pallas in Aquarius, you’re typically logical and unique. These placements can come off as a little genius or crazy. You find intelligent, weird solutions that other people just can’t follow.

There can be a lot of social pressure surrounding Pallas in Aquarius. If you feel too different or weird, especially in school or while growing up, you may start avoiding “intelligence” altogether. Your methods are certainly not normal.

I find that half of the time, these placements are fascinated by science and technology, at least on some level. The other half of Pallas in Aquarius individuals avoid anything that remind them of intelligence.

Occasionally, Pallas in Aquarius individuals can see into the future. They might use psychic gifts or futuristic energy to solve problems.

Pallas In Pisces:

If you have Pallas in Pisces, your intellect is tied to your emotion. Sometimes, this also means that the way you reason out a problem is bound to your emotional scars. Your past has a larger emotional impact on you than most.

You have the tendency to dream rather than do. With Pallas in Pisces, you may find that you solve problems in a way that appeases others, or alternatively in a manner that makes you feel better emotionally.

There isn’t much logic involved in your problem-solving. The solution needs to feel good in some way, whether you feel satisfied for the sake of others or for yourself.

To solve deeper problems, work on peering into the unconscious self. When you solve an issue using your outer emotional reactions, you will often be wrong, but you also have a strong unconscious self which is almost always right.

Pallas in Pisces has the ability to heal with empathy and love, but it can also cause the individual to become unfocused, scattered, and sometimes even selfish. Work on your understanding and empathy and recognize that you must harness your emotions to work with Pallas in Pisces rather than stuff them down.

Pallas In The Houses:

Although I find that Pallas astrology in the signs is far more impactful than Pallas in the houses, it is still important to put both together. I recommend reading the description for your Pallas astrology sign first, then flavoring that description using the qualities of the house.

Pallas in the 1st House

If you have Pallas in the 1st house, you may find that the qualities of Pallas are integral to who you are and how you appear.

You approach the world using strategic thinking. Look to the sign that your Pallas is in and see how it shows up in your outer personality. With Pallas in the 1st house, you really can’t hide these qualities from the world.

In females, Pallas in the 1st house can sometimes indicate an androgynous appearance or a distaste for gendered clothing, although this will depend on what other planets appear in the first house as well as the sign that Pallas in the 1st house is in.

Pallas in the 2nd House

Pallas in the 2nd house is all about values and resources. If you have Pallas in the 2nd house, you probably have an ability to organize and arrange what you value (regardless of what that might be).

For example, you might be able to recognize financial trends and use this to your advantage (if you value money), or you might instead reject money and live a strictly non-material existence, but the things that you do own will be perfectly organized and have a logical use.

Of course, Pallas in the 2nd house will depend quite a lot on the Pallas astrology sign that this asteroid is in.

For example, with Pallas in Cancer, you’re good at reading other people’s emotions. You probably know how to organize and play on these emotions in order to achieve a material gain or to maintain a level of emotional security in a relationship.

With Pallas in Capricorn (the exact opposite of Cancer), you’re bound to be much more financially-inclined. You might be very good at making money or organizing your finances, or you might instead be good at organizing a business and hiring the right managers to grow profits.

Regardless of the sign your Pallas in the 2nd house sits in, you may benefit from visualization to help you strengthen your innate wisdom. There is great potential for manifestation with Pallas in the 2nd house,

Pallas in the 3rd House

If you have Pallas in the 3rd house, you probably have more success solving problems that are day-to-day concerns instead of big picture matters.

I find that Pallas in the 3rd house often indicates brilliance in some way (look to the Pallas astrology sign to see how), but it can also indicate that you have trouble fitting in with your surroundings and with people your own age in childhood.

Regardless, anyone will Pallas in the 3rd house is definitely sharp mentally. You might be creative, or you might be apt with words. You have strong intellect and an inquisitive mind; you never stop solving problems in your head.

Pallas in the 4th House

If you have Pallas in the 4th house, your ability to see patterns and solve problems is greatest when you go back to your roots. This may mean that you quite literally go home, or it might mean that you remember what you learned in childhood and solve problems through the lens of your past.

Pallas in the 4th house can also mean that you draw your intelligence from the domain of the unconscious mind.

Alternatively, Pallas in the 4th house may mean that you learned the traits of Pallas astrology (including the sign your Pallas is in) from one of your parents. Your parent may have embodied these traits, or they might have instead taught you to embody them.

Lastly, Pallas in the 4th house might imply psychic abilities or a deep empathy or emotional connection to others or the universe.

Pallas in the 5th House

If you have Pallas in the 5th house, you solve problems creatively. You probably work with strategy when you come upon a tough puzzle, but coming up with new, inventive ideas is how you get to the answer.

You’re good at finding patterns; you need to focus on patterns instead of blindly choosing. For example, people with Pallas in the 5th house are often good at gambling because they can pick out patterns in real time. People with this placement are also good at playing with children because they have a knack for creativity.

If you’re using your Pallas in the 5th house to the best of your abilities, then you probably create in a structured way. Celebrities with Pallas in the 5th house are everything from inventors to playwrights.

I also find that these folks can do well in management. They come up with inventive solutions to problems that seem ingenious to everyone else.

Lastly, Pallas in the 5th house can mean that you tend to fall in love with, or be attracted to, people who embody the qualities of your Pallas sign in some way. You definitely love a sharp mind!

Pallas in the 6th House

Pallas in the 6th house means that you’re good at solving day-to-day problems. You can easily recognize patterns and come up with solutions as problems arise.

With this placement, Pallas is a constant in your life. Your Pallas astrology sign is just how you function everyday.

With Pallas in the 6th house, you might like to rearrange things daily, be perfectionistic with how you clean your house, or you might instead work with patterns in your daily job.

Look to the sign that your Pallas astrology sits in for more information regarding how Pallas shows up for you day-to-day.

If this doesn’t seem to fit, it may instead mean that you need daily exercise for your mind.

Pallas in the 7th House

If you have Pallas in the 7th house, you might not embody a lot of the qualities of your own Pallas sign. Instead, you look for a partner who has a lot of Pallas qualities, especially in your Pallas astrology sign.

Your potential partners may be very good at solving problems, spotting patterns, and using their wit in general. Pallas in the 7th house usually means you’ll need an intelligent partner, but look to your Pallas astrology sign to see how that intelligence will manifest.

Alternatively, you might find it easier to solve problems with 2 heads instead of 1. For example, you could have a lot of trouble figuring out an issue at work, but when you talk it over with a colleague you can easily come to a conclusion.

Sometimes, Pallas in the 7th house can imply counseling or mediating skills. You may be great at working with interpersonal relationships.

Occasionally, people with Pallas in the 7th house might have difficulty expressing their gender or sexuality in a way that feels comfortable.

Pallas in the 8th House

Pallas in the 8th house means that your mind functions well in the realm of the unconscious and while doing secretive work. You might have a knack for figuring out secrets or weaving a web of lies that no one else will detect.

You’re able to see patterns in unconscious thoughts and actions with Pallas in the 8th house. For example, you might deduce personal details about someone from noticing the topics that they avoid.

If the rest of the chart supports it, then Pallas in the 8th house can indicate healing abilities or an inclination towards healing professions (either mental, emotional, or physical healing). Alternatively, it can mean that the individual is really good with money and finances, mainly by seeing patterns.

With Pallas in the 8th house, you might even solve problems by using psychism or intuition.

Pallas in the 8th house can sometimes mean that your sexuality isn’t often expressed, especially when young.

Pallas in the 9th House

With Pallas in the 9th house, you’re better at solving larger-scale problems than working on day-to-day matters. I find that people with Pallas in the 9th house solve problems by using either their education or their philosophy.

If you’re the first type, you solve problems using things that you’ve learned. Sometimes, this might be from a formal education (such as university), but it could also be through self-education. This is an excellent placement for a college professor, however you can be educated in any field and use your knowledge accordingly.

If you’re the second type, you solve problems using your world-view and your philosophy. You try to figure out “what it all means” in the greater complex and solve a problem in a way that feels right.

I find that Pallas in the 9th house folks are often involved in philosophical, religious, legal, or political careers. Even if they’re not, they probably have strong opinions about these areas.

Pallas in the 10th House

Pallas in the 10th house can be very beneficial if you’re a “career person.” You will have great solving problem abilities (especially in your specific Pallas astrology sign) and intelligence relating to career and to your public image.

You’re probably good at solving problems relating to your career or public image. You use strategic thinking and wisdom.

You might have a desire to achieve some type of success or recognition. Your job or work may be very important to you, but this will of course depend on the sign that Pallas sits in.

If you’re someone who struggles with career, I recommend that you figure out how to use your Pallas sign. This can give you a boost to get to the next level.

Sometimes, the 10th house can also mean that one of your parents (typically the father but sometimes just the stronger, more forceful parent) taught you the qualities of your Pallas sign.

Pallas in the 11th House

With Pallas in the 11th house, your problem solving abilities are enhanced when you’re surrounded by other people. You need to push against the ideas and beliefs of others in order to figure out what’s true for you.

Sometimes, Pallas in the 11th house can mean that you attract friends who are rather low vibration in order for you to figure out what you truly believe. Other times, it can mean that you solve problems best in a group, using the “two heads are better than one” mentality. You might need to talk about a problem to other people before you have a solution.

Alternatively, your creativity might manifest in social causes. You may feel very passionate about solving the problems of the world rather than your own, and you probably have a lot of ideas about how to make the world a better place (with the strategic though processes to back these ideas up).

Lastly, I find that sometimes people with Pallas in the 11th house solve problems best by communication with spirit guides and angels, or any type of high-vibrational group that is “beyond the veil.”

Pallas in the 12th House

If you have Pallas in the 12th house, you either suppress your Pallas astrology sign in general or you solve problems through 12th house methods, such as spirituality, psychology, fantasy, and the unconscious mind.

I find that Pallas in the 12th house typically means you won’t have success if you’re trying to solve problems in a straightforward, logical way. Even though it seems like the answer should make sense, it just won’t work out.

Instead, you need to tap into your unconscious mind and the power of the universe. There is always a solution to any problem, but it isn’t something that’s accessible to you through books.

You’re probably very good at recognizing psychological patterns in others as well as energy patterns. You gain wisdom from the unconscious mind. Your intuition and your problem-solving abilities are perfectly linked.

If you don’t see these abilities in yourself, then you’re probably suppressing your Pallas sign and holding back your own problem solving abilities. Work with energy and the unconscious mind to un-tap even more power.

Pallas Astrology: Pallas Retrograde

Pallas retrograde often comes from a past life experience with Pallas-like qualities. I find that most people with Pallas retrograde rushed into things before solving problems in an appropriate manner in a past life, so they now work to correct these issues.

Typically, individuals with Pallas retrograde work much harder than others on Pallas-like qualities. They will work to develop patience, to strategize, and to plan before moving. Sometimes, these people have an innate thirst for knowledge (especially in the areas of their Pallas astrology sign and/or house) instead of just naturally possessing the knowledge they need.

If you have Pallas retrograde, you might run into road-blocks in your life that make you stop and develop the qualities of your Pallas astrology sign. Even though it might feel difficult, this Pallas retrograde is for your highest purpose.

Alternatively, Pallas retrograde can mean that it’s less apparent to others when you’re solving a problem. You might only work through issues internally and seem to come up with a solution out of thin air.

A Beginner’s Guide To Cat Zodiac Signs & Cat Astrology

A Beginner’s Guide To Cat Zodiac Signs & Cat Astrology

Astrology for people is so popular, so why not cat astrology? I looked into my cat’s zodiac sign the minute I brought her home (I’m an astrology nerd like that) and was so glad I did, because my research gave me a lot of insight into her personality. Cat zodiac signs are eerily accurate!

Keep in mind that you probably won’t be able to figure out your cat’s entire natal chart unless you have a really accurate birth day and time. Regardless, even knowing the sun sign can provide a lot of understanding!

How Can I Figure Out My Cat’s Astrology Chart?

If you don’t know your cat’s zodiac sign or you aren’t quite sure, there are a few ways to figure this out.

Firstly, you can read the descriptions and try to guess at what makes sense for your cat, based on the personality traits you see. Because your cat has a whole natal chart, cat zodiac signs (your cat’s sun sign) are never 100% accurate, but you should be able to discern some key parts of your cat’s personality from the descriptions below.

Another way to figure out your cat’s astrology sign is to use either astrology dice or the pendulum.

You can quite literally roll the astrology dice (check out the dice here on Amazon) and ask what sign your cat is. I find that these dice are about 80% accurate. They’re really handy for times like this!

You can also ask a pendulum yes/no questions or make a chart with the 12 astrology signs on it. I like to use both the pendulum and the dice and only consider the answer “accurate” if I get the same result using both tools.

The Aries Cat

The Aries cat is your typical spitfire. This cat is physically adventurous, impulsive, and daring.

I imagine the Aries cat as the one who would try to jump and latch onto the fan while it’s moving. These kitties have no fear!

If you have an Aries cat, you need to give them lots of exercise and stimulation. These cats need physical exertion before they can relax mentally.

Sometimes, Aries cats can be aggressive. They make for great mousers! The Aries cat loves to chase and stalk prey; they’re bound to bring you a “gift” every once in a while to show off their conquests.

While the Aries cat is a bit of a spitfire, they also burn out quickly. They just need a bit of daily exercise before they’re ready to tucker out for a nap.

The Taurus Cat

The Taurus cat loves their home, their comfy spots, and their food. They enjoy all the physical pleasures, from snuggling with their owners to enjoying an opulent meal.

Taurus cats definitely like a clear and definitive routine. They don’t want you to switch things up on them too often.

These cats enjoy being cared for. They want you to buy them a comfy bed, groom them, or make them an extra yummy meal. Taurus cats need to know that you’re invested in spoiling them to feel emotionally secure.

Most of all, Taurus cats enjoy having a full belly. They’re not the most active of cats and have a tendency to gain weight if the owner isn’t careful.

The Gemini Cat

The typical Gemini cat is mentally sharp. These cats get bored easily and need lots of new toys and puzzles to play with around the clock.

The rule with Gemini cats is to make sure that they never fall into a monotonous routine. These Gemini cats actually don’t like a super consistent routine (unlike many other cats) and would prefer that you mix things up.

Gemini cats can be a little moody. They’re pretty up and down – they’ll be snuggly and cuddly one day and then off on their own the next. Gemini cats definitely have some nervous energy that a good owner can help redirect into play! Generally, these are fun cats to have around.

The Cancer Cat

The Cancer cat is one of the best cats to have if you want a lot of emotional closeness. This is one of the cat zodiac signs that needs a huge amount of attention, both physically and emotionally.

These cats get depressed easily if they don’t get enough quality time with their owners. They can be a bit codependent and grow sad if their owners leave them alone too much.

If a Cancer cat doesn’t feel like you’re paying enough attention to them, it’s common for them to act out.

These Cancer cats can be the classic “scaredy-cat.” Sometimes, these cats are quite literally scared of everything. They need to be with their owners to feel brave.

If you don’t mind your cat becoming obsessed with you, then a Cancer cat might be the one to have. They almost want to merge with their owners.

They can get a bit rattled when there is too much noise and might not do well with noisy, big families, but they’re very loving cats and are often perfect for single people who have a lot of love to give. These cats are very protective of their owners and are loyal to a fault!

The Leo Cat

If you have a Leo cat, they definitely knows that they’re the alpha. They always have to come out on top and won’t stand for being second best, even to humans. The Leo cat rules the roost!

These cats are natural leaders if you have more than one pet. They have the most charisma of the cat zodiac signs; they’re probably very charming around guests.

When caring for a Leo cat, you’ll notice that they need a lot of attention. They like both physical attention and emotional attention. If they aren’t pampered, they’ll turn on you quickly. They believe that they’re royalty and deserve to be treated like the best!

Leo cats aren’t the most active and don’t need a ton of mental stimulation, but they do need attention in general.

The Virgo Cat

Virgo cats are super regimented animals. They’re obsessed with routines and enjoy a perfectly structured day.

The typical Virgo cat is also super picky and fussy about the way that you do things for them. You’ll need to pay attention to what they like. For example, they may refuse to eat or drink if you put their water and food bowls together. These tics will be unique for each kitty.

Virgo cats are super clean, both with themselves and their litter box. They’ll expect you to keep their space clean as well.

Sometimes, Virgo cats feel a bit superior to everyone around them. They’re super smart, clever cats and can figure out any toy in a short amount of time!

The Libra Cat

Libra cats are social and affectionate. The Libra cat loves relaxing, having a lazy day, and being pampered.

The typical Libra cat is very pretty and usually knows it. These are honestly some of the most gorgeous cats I’ve ever seen!

Libra cats definitely need a lot of companionship. They often do well with another cat or pet, but they can get by with just humans as long as they get lots of time devoted to them.

I find that Libra cats are pretty easygoing as long as they have enough socialization. Otherwise, they’re quite self-sufficient and flexible!

The Scorpio Cat

Scorpio is a fixed sign in the element of water, so Scorpio cats are typically angsty and unchanging.

Scorpio cats don’t like to leave their home very often. They’re attached to things and places; they don’t like when you switch up their schedule or placements of items.

Although these cats will stand up for themselves if needed, they can also be “scardey-cats” and need lots of spots to hide in the home. They require alone time to brood and don’t like too much “over the top” affection, but they do want to ensure that they have a deep, emotional bond with you.

Scorpio cats are very faithful to their family once they’re committed. They want to know that their owners will always be there when they need them.

I find that Scorpio cats tend to have really gorgeous, intense eyes. These cats can be pretty mysterious and hard to connect with, but they’re certainly alluring.

Scorpio cats don’t need a ton of playtime, but they do like to play with their owners once in a while. They’re very clever and prefer to play any ambush-type games.

It’s most important that you give your Scorpio cat a private place to retreat to where they can feel safe. They might even hide from you sometimes – don’t take it personally! This is simply the Scorpio nature.

The Sagittarius Cat

In my opinion, Sagittarius is one of the cat zodiac signs that feels the most natural to humans. This is the outdoor cat many of us grew up with. These Sagittarius cats are explorers by nature!

These cats love to explore every nook and cranny. The Sagittarius cat might be gone for days at a time, off on any and all adventures. They’re friendly with strangers, but they’ll usually come back to their home in the end.

Many of these cats come as strays. They’re great outdoor cats, but if they’re kept inside, they’ll need a lot of stimulation so they don’t get depressed. They like variety. Plan to create plenty of new places to discover or things to explore and learn.

These cats can be pretty messy (they quite literally don’t care about their appearance), but they’re certainly fun! These are the lucky cats who always seem to get out of scrapes. They’re definitely survivors!

The Capricorn Cat

The Capricorn cat is pretty shy and less social than other signs, but they’re a very loyal cat to their owners. These cats need to feel connected and will insist on being treated well before you get their loyalty, but once they’re tied to you, it’s for life.

These cats are great working cats. The typical Capricorn cat excels as a mouser or barn cat; they enjoy having a consistent job to do. Boredom will kill Capricorn cats, so make sure to set up lots of puzzles for them to complete on a daily basis.

At the same time, Capricorn cats don’t like being babied or coddled. They want to be treated like an equal. These cats are often great roommates and make stable pets in any household!

The Aquarius Cat

The Aquarius cat is friendly and independent. These cats can be a bit aloof at times. They don’t need a ton of attention and sometimes don’t even want it.

If you’re looking for a low-maintenance cat, you should definitely consider an Aquarius! These are great cats if you’re someone who travels often as they’re fine on their own.

The Aquarius cat doesn’t have many emotional needs. They can actually be a little cold. They might be even quirky or weird, and they jump from hobby to hobby. Expect the Aquarius cat to keep you on your toes!

At their worst, the Aquarius cat can be a destroyer of homes. Make sure you’re always bringing home new toys or setting up jungle gyms to keep them entertained.

The Pisces Cat

The Pisces cat is super affectionate and gentle. These are great cats if you want a constant companion by your side. These cats will usually need you emotionally; they’re intuitive and try to become enmeshed with their owners’ emotions.

Like other water signs, the Pisces cat can be a bit of a typical scardey-cat, but this isn’t always the case with Pisces; it will depend on the rest of their chart.

I find that the Pisces cat is almost always psychic and will chase shadows that you don’t see. I personally think that all cats are psychic, but the Pisces cat really takes this to another level.

The Pisces cat will take it personally if you don’t pay attention to them. They quite literally want to merge with their owners once they feel safe!

How Accurate Are Cat Zodiac Signs?

Like I said before, these cat zodiac signs are simply sun signs. As you probably know, there is way more to cat astrology (and any other type of astrology!) than the sun sign.

I do find that cat zodiac signs are accurate in some ways. The sun sign describes the essence of the person (or cat) and who they will become, so it’s probably easy to see at least some of these qualities in your cat.

If you don’t see any of these qualities, then your cat may have an unusual sun placement, such as a 12th house sun. Feel free to drop us a line if you’re confused and we’re happy to help you figure it out!

How To Learn More About Cat Zodiac Signs

If you do a lot of astrology work already, then you can learn more about cat astrology by figuring out your cat’s natal chart. You can use the pendulum or dice (scroll up to read more about those) to find the day and time, if you don’t know it.

Chiron in Libra: The Wound Of Relationship

Chiron in Libra: The Wound Of Relationship

Chiron is the wounded healer and shows our long-term wounds that often come from a past lifetime. Chiron in Libra is the particular wound of relationships.

We tend to overcompensate in Chiron areas by becoming a bit extreme. It’s natural to try and “fix” the wound, but often I find that we chase a solution to fix our Chiron, instead of uncovering the solution inside of us.

Unlike other planets, it’s hard to ignore your Chiron. It will hit you in the face, over and over, and can make your life pretty terrible, especially if you don’t know how to work with it. The Chiron in Libra wound is especially difficult because it’s all about relationships, something we deal with almost every day.

The Chiron In Libra Wound

Chiron in Libra means that you feel like there is something missing from your life. Usually, this “something” is your soul mate.

The Chiron in Libra wound might feel like a hole inside you. You may spend time trying to fill it with things from the outside world. You might also feel as though the world is just a bit off-balance at all times.

With Chiron in Libra, you are hurt by loneliness, but you are also hurt by relationships. Whether you’re in a relationship or are alone, the wound is there. Chiron in Libra shows itself no matter how hard you try to hide it.

There can be a lot of anxiety and guilt surrounding the Chiron in Libra wound. These people typically feel inadequate socially as a child, regardless of whether or not this is apparent to others.

How The Chironic Wound Will Show Itself

This Chiron in Libra wound can show itself in a variety of ways. Often, these people feel alone and incomplete without a relationship, but they never find the fulfillment that they’re looking for in any relationship, either.

The Chiron in Libra wound usually manifests as conflict in interpersonal relationships. It is really difficult for these folks to have relationships without triggering the wound. This can include conflicts in romantic relationships, as well as partnerships and friendships. If you have Chiron in Libra, be wary of self-neglect in relationships.

Most relationships for the Chiron in Libra person will be karmic. It is important for these folks to focus on relationships in order to heal the wound, but this spotlight must have the intention of learning and working on ways to approach relationships that are more authentic.

It’s not abnormal for the Chiron in Libra person to wear a mask in a relationship. It might be really hard for them to show their true self to their partner for fear of losing the relationship.

The terror of being alone makes it hard for a Chiron in Libra person to get out of a relationship, even if it becomes unhealthy. It’s not uncommon for these relationships to have some sort of abuse involved in them, mainly because the Chiron in Libra person is passive and malleable, so they’re really a prime target.

I find that those with Chiron in Libra tend to give far more than they receive. This is most likely due to their fear of being left alone. There are definitely “people-pleaser” tendencies with this placement; these are the classic conflict-avoidant individuals.

Alternatively, the Chiron in Libra individual can be so afraid of being alone that they refuse to engage in relationships at all. I don’t see this outcome as much, but it is certainly a possibility. These people are often able to give others relationship advice that they can’t follow themselves.

Typically, the Chiron in Libra person gets into relationships with those who show a mirror image of the qualities they can’t see in themselves. They might also give to their partners what they aren’t able to give to their inner selves.

A Chiron in Libra individual might live a double life. It’s easy for them to hide who they truly are inside if they feel that they must put on a face in order to stay in a relationship. Sometimes, these people will do this for years, even while living with a partner.

This really is the classic Romeo & Juliet placement. Chiron in Libra is all about sacrificing yourself for the partner. Often, individuals do this because they are desperately trying to heal the wound, but it doesn’t fix it.

Where Does The Chiron In Libra Wound Come From?

I find that most Chiron in Libra placements are developed in a past life. Unlike other wounds, this wound is about karmic relationships, so Chiron in Libra people will usually meet the same souls over and over until the wound is healed.

Sometimes, these Chironic beliefs are cemented by parents or through other early life experience, but the original wound almost always comes from a relationship trauma in a past life.

How to Heal Chiron in Libra

The first step to healing Chiron in Libra is to recognize that the true soul mate is within. The Chiron in Libra person is constantly looking to fill that “soul mate” void with other people, but they will only feel truly complete by connecting with the inner self.

You will find with this placement that others reflect your own needs back to you. If you see qualities in others that you feel you lack, then it’s time to try and discover those qualities within yourself instead of outsourcing.

You will need to learn how to be authentic in a relationship, without hiding any part of yourself. You probably feel fear that you might be left alone if you do reveal your true self, but this is fear that you have to process and move through. It’s okay to be afraid. The lesson with Chiron in Libra is to do it anyways!

Unconditional love for the self is something that will be helpful for you to develop. You will learn, by doing this work, that separateness and aloneness were simply illusions. I find that energy work can be especially helpful, as well as meditation and inner work.

Chiron In Virgo: The Wound Of Perfection

Chiron In Virgo: The Wound Of Perfection

If you’re studying your Chiron placement, you will find that Chiron shows the area of your life or personality where you’re especially sensitive and vulnerable. This probably isn’t an area that you can avoid. This particular wound is really sensitive and really obvious to you, unlike other placements (such as Saturn or Lilith). Chiron in Virgo is an especially sensitive placement.

Many people try to overcompensate in the area where Chiron sits. There is a tendency to want to “make up for” the wound so that it isn’t obvious to others.

The Chiron In Virgo Wound

With Chiron in Virgo, you feel that there is something fundamentally wrong with you. This wound relates to your self-worth.

You might feel unclean, impure, fragmented, incomplete, or bad in some way. You probably get the sense that some fundamental piece of you was made incorrectly.

Sometimes, you will try to hide the Chiron in Virgo wound from the world, but you will always feel like there’s something wrong with you and worry that others can see it.

You search for wholeness and satisfaction. To get there, those with Chiron in Virgo usually try to “fix” themselves, but it is pretty difficult for these individuals to find the true road to healing.

Other Chiron Posts:

How The Chironic Wound Will Show Itself

If you have Chiron in Virgo, you probably try to achieve perfection because you want to fix whatever you feel is wrong with you. You try to deal with the Chironic wound by changing things that you feel are wrong or bad about yourself.

For example, someone with Chiron in Virgo might be really meticulous about hair, clothes, and looks. They might stay up on the latest fashions and would be horrified to show up to an event dressed “wrong.”

Alternatively, someone with Chiron in Virgo might be perfectionistic about the way that they speak to others. They might study social graces, learn easy conversation lines, etc., but if they mess up even once they feel like the world has crashed around them.

I find that Chiron in Virgo can also manifest as obsessive-compulsive disorder, or alternatively as extreme messiness and disorganization. Sometimes, an individual will swing back and forth between these extremes, or will struggle to integrate.

You might be critical of others, more-so than other Chiron signs, but this is really because Chiron in Virgo creates a huge amount of self-criticism. Sometimes, criticism of others is a self-defense mechanism if you have anxiety about judgements coming your way.

Chiron in Virgo is very black and white. You probably see things as good or bad, and it can be hard for you to develop shades of grey in everyday life.

Look to the house that your Chiron sits in for more information. With Chiron in Virgo in the 4th house, for example, you will feel as though there was something fundamentally wrong with you as a child; now, you may still feel that sense of uneasiness inside whenever your inner child pokes his/her head out. But with Chiron in the 7th house, you probably feel like there is something fundamentally wrong with the way that you have relationships.

You’ll know when you figure out how your Chiron in Virgo manifests. You shouldn’t have to dig too deep to discover it, because your Chiron in something that has been present through your life and that causes continuous feelings of displeasure.

Regardless of how your Chiron in Virgo manifests, the main idea is that you try to control your life in some area. You might control the organization of your home, your relationships, your daily schedule, the way that you dress/look, or any other area. You will eventually realize that control is just a facade, for it doesn’t actually decrease the negative feelings that arise within you when your Chiron is activated. It’s simply the best coping mechanism that you’ve had.

Where Does The Chiron In Virgo Wound Come From?

I find that much of the time, people with this Chiron placement are born with some of these false beliefs about themselves. For example, you might have felt that there was something wrong with you from a very young age, but as you work your way through society and see other people’s judgments towards you, these views are only cemented.

Sometimes, the Chiron in Virgo wound is developed due to parental influences. Maybe your parents were extremely critical of you or treated you as though there was something fundamentally wrong with you. Other individuals have perfectly loving parents who are no more critical than is necessary, so this isn’t a rule.

I do find that natives with Chiron in Virgo saw their parents as critical, even if this wasn’t reality. These people are usually hyper-sensitive to slights, so they may have been crushed by the most subtle judgments projected from their parents.

Regardless of reality, I recommend that you work with the emotions that you felt and that you don’t diminish your feelings.

How to Heal Chiron in Virgo

The thing about all Chiron signs is that you can never 100% heal them. The Chiron sign you’re born with will always be with you, and this is actually good because the wound is a part of who you are.

There isn’t any “getting over” the issues that Chiron reveals. Instead of trying to get rid of the wound, I recommend working to transmit the Chiron in Virgo wound to its highest potential by recognizing vulnerabilities and embracing them.

Over time with Chiron in Virgo, you will probably come to realize that regardless of how hard you try, you never feel as thought you adequately covered up the wound. It’s always there deep inside.

The goal with Chiron in Virgo is to integrate our persons into wholeness. There is already a perfect unity that exists within you and no part of you is bad, but Chiron in Virgo makes you feel separated and fragmented.

Instead of seeing some parts of yourself as good and others as bad, the healing path is to realize that every part of you has a purpose and to fully accept all sides of yourself.

It is only the illusion that says part of you is wrong. In fact, we all have parts of our personality and soul that contradict other parts, but these parts are all necessary to be our true selves. The goal is to love ourselves just as well are, good and bad parts alike.

Everything You Need To Know About Mars In Cancer In The Natal Chart

Everything You Need To Know About Mars In Cancer In The Natal Chart

Mars is the planet of action; it rules our drive, our motivation, our methods of accomplishing tasks, and our attraction to others.

Because Mars rules action, he is considered to be in his “fall” or “depression” when Mars is in Cancer. I like to say that Mars is staying at his mom’s house when he’s in Cancer.

Like any other placement, there are both positive and negative qualities that come with this placement. Mars is certainly more reserved in Cancer, but this just means that the typical Martian qualities come out a bit sideways.

Sometimes, Cancer tempers Mars and Mars also tempers Cancer. At its best, this placement is quite serene and balanced.

Mars In Cancer Characteristics

Mars shows many different areas of the personality, but it most especially shows up in your drive, temper, career, relationships, and attraction.

Here are the ways that Mars in Cancer tends to manifest in an individual’s personality.

Drive:

With Mars in Cancer, you move slowly. You gently test the waters and almost never dive into something headfirst. You have trouble with change and don’t like things to develop rapidly.

It can be difficult for you to try something new as you tend to be inhibited by insecurity. Your emotions motivate you to be driven; you’re not motivated by facts or logic.

When you feel threatened, you quite literally freeze and loose your drive altogether.

With Mars in Cancer, you may have a large drive for helping others (the homeless, in philanthropy, with your family, etc.) but struggle to find your own drive for yourself. Anyone would be lucky to have you on their side!

You’e always defensive of your soft interior, just like a crab. You’re more driven when you feel that you’re protected; when you’re feeling defensive, you retreat.

Temper:

With Mars in Cancer, you don’t have an outward temper. You avoid confrontation when possible; you’re less than direct.

You do tend to hold onto anything that you see a slight. You build resentment against others over time because you never properly express it, but you eventually combust.

The typical Mars in Cancer person can be very passive aggressive. You might be defensive and alternate between behind-the-scenes manipulation tactics and dramatic emotion displays.

The Mars in Cancer individual has trouble appropriately expressing their emotions, but this is the goal if you want to regulate your outbursts. You probably have trouble venting in a healthy manner, so the emotions build up then flood out of you.

I find that those with Mars in Cancer struggle when they’re emotionally upset in other ways, too. Turbulent emotions mess with their willpower and drive and zap them in many areas of their lives. These folks first need to deal with their emotions and settle issues within themselves before they can be strong.

It can be easy for Mars in Cancer people to feel like the victim in almost every situation because it’s difficult for them to see things in an abstract manner. It is important that they let go of their feelings of victimization and of needing to be right.

If you have Mars in Cancer, know that suppressing negative feelings will not help you deal with them. More than any other placement, it is essential that you work through your feelings.

Career:

Those with Mars in Cancer can be extremely successful in many careers, but it is often the getting into the career that they struggle with.

If you have Mars in Cancer, it might be difficult for you to figure out what it is that makes you tick. You might feel a bit lost or struggle to find your innate talent.

There is probably something that you’re really good at, but the trick is finding it and pursuing it with gusto.

Those with Mars in Cancer are often great in domestic careers or at working with their hands. This will of course depend on your own chart, so this is not a hard rule.

Sometimes, these folks have the urge to put down roots in some way (kids, a home, a relationship, etc.) instead of developing a regular career.

Ideally, these people will find a workplace where they feel safe, surrounded by coworkers who feel like family. Alternatively, they usually work well from home.

Attraction:

With Mars in Cancer, you enjoy the chase but don’t make direct moves. You’re probably not a bold initiator.

Mars in Cancer women are attracted to sweet and sensitive guys who make them feel emotionally secure. Mars in Cancer men exude this sensitivity and are very gentle towards those they care for.

Above all, with Mars in Cancer you are attracted to emotional honesty. You need to feel emotionally safe and you pick up on emotional dishonesty very easily.

Romance/Sex:

With Mars in Cancer, you feel very protective of those you care about, but you can also be overly self-protective and perceive anything as a slight towards you. This can make for some dramatic fights.

When you feel threatened, you might be moody or emotionally manipulative. Some Mars in Cancer folks cry at the drop of a hat.

When you’re committed, you’re also very protective of your partner and will go to any lengths to defend them.

If you don’t feel emotionally triggered, you can be very peaceful, protective, and loving in a relationship. You are sensuous and warm.

Sexually, the Mars in Cancer drive is tied up with emotional need. There is almost always a meeting of the bodies and the emotions; sex is very intuitive and emotional for these folks.

They’re very devoted and will touch their partners in a sentimental way to show them their love. Sex is almost never emotionless, even when they’re having “uncommitted” sex.

Those with Mars in Cancer might have trouble telling their partners what they need and expect it to be intuited. Their biggest turn-on is safety, both physical and emotional.

Mars In Cancer: Best & Worst Qualities

With any placement, there are positive and less-than-desirable qualities. Mars in Cancer is no exception.

If you have Mars in Cancer, you won’t see every one of these qualities in yourself. The qualities that are expressed will depend on the house, placement, aspects, etc.

Best:

  • Loyal To Family
  • Care For The Weak
  • Intuitive
  • Sensitive
  • Creative
  • Nurturing
  • Protective
  • Security-Focused
  • Maternal

Worst:

  • Passive-Aggressive
  • Inhibited
  • Emotionally Manipulative
  • Moody
  • Defensive
  • Oversensitive
  • Clingy
  • Easily Offended

Mars In Cancer: Male vs. Female

This part can get a little confusing, so bear with me as I explain it. Basically, Mars shows itself differently for someone with more masculine energy than it does for someone with more feminine energy.

It’s up to you to choose with energy you identify with more. If you’re unsure, I recommend reading the description of each energy for Mars in Cancer (below) and choosing what resonates with you.

Generally, in a man (or someone with masculine energy), Mars will show how the person acts and what vibes they gives off towards others. When this person is flirting, they will assume many of the qualities of Mars in Cancer.

In a woman (or someone with feminine energy), Mars will show what kind of qualities they are attracted to. How this person will act depends on their Venus sign, but Mars dictates what types of energy they are drawn towards in a partner.

Keep in mind that these distinctions aren’t absolute. As a straight woman, I definitely show my Venus sign when I’m flirting, but sometimes my Mars will bleed through just a bit. I find these definitions to be about 80% accurate, but we’re always a unique combination of all of our signs.

The Mars In Cancer Man

The typical Mars in Cancer man will attract a partner by being emotionally sensitive; he will “feel out” the other person.

This guy wants his partner to feel safe with him and to share emotional intimacies. He can take a bit to warm up, because he wants to protect himself, but he has a lot to give.

The Mars in Cancer man can be a bit temperamental and is easily wounded. He needs a lot of emotional attention from a partner.

Sometimes, the man with Mars in Cancer will have conflict with his mom, especially once he starts dating someone. Other times, this guy tries to find a mother in a partner, needing to be babied and coddled. It’s very common for a Mars in Cancer man to date women who mother him.

At the end of the day, Mars in Cancer men are more compassionate and nurturing than typical guys. He will do well with a partner who wants a sensitive, caring, and emotional relationship.

The Mars In Cancer Woman

The Mars in Cancer woman wants a man who is nurturing and caring. She needs a deep emotional connection to feel comfortable in a relationship.

This woman may smother her partner a bit. She needs a lot of reassurance, even after she has been in a relationship for some time.

I find that sometimes, she will look for someone she can mother. This helps to create an initial attraction, although her partner may come to resent her over time.

Unlike other water signs, the Mars in Cancer woman is generally attracted to strong, large men, but they also find a bit of emotional moodiness intriguing. These women love the combination of strength and sentimentality.

This woman can have massive mood swings in a relationship. Sometimes, when she looses control of her emotions, she can create quite a bit of drama.

She can be inclined towards alcohol to control her mood swings. She may have trouble with both mania and depression. This is exacerbated if she chooses a moody partner.

She wants absolute commitment but isn’t always willing to give it, at least not until her partner gives it first. At her best, this woman is nurturing and caring without smothering her partner.

The biggest goal for the Mars in Cancer woman is to work on her own emotions and learn to both feel and control them.

How To Master The Mars In Cancer Energy

With Mars in Cancer, you need to work on processing your feelings in a healthy way. You may have the tendency to either suppress your feelings or dwell on them, but instead you need to deal with your feelings and move on.

Therapy can be healthy if you feel flooded with negative emotions. With Mars in Cancer, you need a framework to work through your feelings so that they don’t overwhelm you.

With positive work, you can increase your drive and manifest better, more balanced relationships.

The goal is to learn to confront others you’re in relationships with in healthy ways, instead of exploding or manipulating them. You can assert yourself and feel strong in an authentic manner with enough practice.

5 Mistakes You’re Making When Reading Your Birth Chart

5 Mistakes You’re Making When Reading Your Birth Chart

Learning astrology is hard. I remember when I first got a copy of my natal chart: I was completely overwhelmed.

There are so many symbols, placements, and houses, and just when you’ve got those down, you remember that there’s a secondary grid full of aspects.

I made a lot of mistakes during my astrology journey and eventually figured out why my readings weren’t working, so I’m writing this post to help out others who are making similar mistakes, because it’s really frustrating when a reading just doesn’t work!

These are the 5 most common mistakes that I see beginner astrologers making; I made all of these errors myself. And here’s the thing: I don’t really care about mistakes at all if the reading is accurate, but I’ve found that these 5 mistakes in particular cause readings to be extremely inaccurate, which is why I think they’re so important to correct.

Here are the top 5 mistakes I regularly see beginner astrologers make!

5. You Only Study The Big Three

Most regular folks only know their sun sign, but when you dig a bit deeper, you first learn that your sun sign, moon sign, and ascendant (or rising sign) are the most important placements in your chart.

This is great if you just want to dabble, but if you’re hoping to get deeper into astrology, then you need to realize that there is way more than just these big three signs.

For example, my big three are mostly fire signs. Looking at that, anyone would say that I’m ambitious, outgoing, and aggressive. And yes, I am all of these things, but I also have 6 planets in Pisces, meaning I’m super sensitive, musically inclined, into the occult and divination, etc. I cry easily and don’t like to be around people for too long because I’m so energetically sensitive. If you only looked at my big three signs, you wouldn’t get an accurate reading on me.

If you have only been studying your big three signs, I recommend taking the plunge and learning about other planets. A great way to begin is with the CoStar app, especially if reading full-on charts feels too daunting.

The CoStar app (this post isn’t sponsored, BTW, I just think this app is the best for beginners) tells you what sign and house each of your planets is in. It’s a clear layout of your chart (if you don’t know the symbols) that you can use to then do your own research.

If you’re already doing this, consider taking the next step by beginning to work with your actual char. It’s key in astrology to eventually see the chart laid out before you; the natal chart helps you to put it all together instead of reading each placement completely separately.

4. You Make Things Either Good Or Bad

When you first begin, you might want to assign “good” or “bad” attributes to each planet, sign, house, or aspect.

I remember the first time I looked at a synastry chart (which is a chart that shows the relationship between two people) for myself and my boyfriend at the time. I googled each placement and aspect, trying to determine if the relationship was good or bad.

I saw a lot of squares, which I didn’t like, and measured them against the trines. I decided that our relationship was mostly bad and felt discouraged.

The thing is, none of my assumptions were correct. Squares are difficult because they force change, which can be good in the long run; trines can be too easy leaving no attraction between the partners. We’re happily engaged now, by the way.

There are so many ways that you could look at your chart in black and white. You might think that Saturn is bad because it means limitations or karma; the South Node is bad and the North Node is good.

I encourage you to let go of these beliefs and to look at each placement and aspect as good and bad. Every single piece of your chart has both, and it is your own choices and actions that determine which qualities you express.

For example, with Mars in Libra, you can be extremely petty, manipulative, and can be a bit of a social climber, or you can peaceable and work to solve arguments through logic. This can be one of the most wonderful placements or the most difficult.

The Leo moon can be extremely loving and caring, or it can cause the individual to become prideful and need praise to survive emotionally.

My point is that we have free will, so the way the chart is expressed is always up to the individual.

3. You Try To Learn About Transits First

Your natal chart is a picture of the sky at the exact moment you were born, while a transit chart is a picture of the sky right now.

Many beginner astrologers get their hands on a transit chart and then try to figure out how the current patterns in the sky are impacting their own chart.

While transit astrology is useful, it’s very difficult. It really is an entire study all on its own. If you’re a beginner, this will be super overwhelming and might put you off astrology for good.

In my experience, it’s really difficult to figure out transit astrology if you don’t know regular natal astrology. I always recommend that students start with their own birth charts and the charts of those they know well before moving onto other types of astrological readings.

2. You Only Look At Venus For Love Astrology

This is a pretty specific mistake, yet I see students make this blunder so often that I had to include it.

Repeat after me: your Venus sign does not determine your love life. Venus rules attraction and romance, so some elements of your Venus sign will be present, but Venus is definitely not all that matters.

Juno, Mars, Lilith, and many other placements all come together to form different aspects of your love life. After all, we’re not one-dimensional.

To learn more about the planets that are involved in your love life, check out my post on astrological compatibility here, or take a glance at my eBook all about relationship astrology here.

1. You Try To Make Clear Rules About Each Planet Or Sign

We’re almost all guilty of this one. When you first learn about astrology, the temptation is to try and define each planet and sign into one definition.

This doesn’t work because every sign, as well as every planet, has many different sides to it.

Let’s take Scorpio, for example. Scorpio can be power, obsession, mysticism, the occult, depression, desire, passion, drive, emotion, suspicion, transformation, trauma, etc. I could go on and on with these keywords, but I think this clearly illustrates that one placement just can’t be all of these.

If you have a placement in Scorpio, you might find yourself suspicious, jealous, and obsession. Or, you might find yourself suspicious and driven to overcome this jealous nature, creating transformation. This suspicion may come from trauma (another Scorpionic element) or it might just be a part of your personality. Then again, you might possess other Scorpio qualities but have no suspicion or jealousy at all.

There is no one size fits all with any planet or sign. For this reason, I recommend studying your own chart and the charts of those you know well in order to figure out what side of each sign and planet fits the person. What qualities do you or they have that are from this sign?

Astrology can feel a bit like a science when you get into the technical side of it, but I really believe that it is, at its core, an art. There is a flow to reading a chart that requires an intuitive mind to decipher how a sign or placement fits.

It might take you a while to figure out how each of your placements express themselves or how each sign shows up in your life, but I promise that it’s worth the effort! My point is: remember to apply your knowledge and work with the definitions to fit the situation and planet instead of reading a definition straight from the book or website.

Venus in Pisces In The Birth Chart

Venus in Pisces In The Birth Chart

Venus in Pisces is a floaty, etherial placement. Some of the most beautiful and talented actors, musicians, and artists have this placement, but it also comes with a whole host of problems.

As those with any Pisces placements know, Pisces makes everything feel unstable and uncertain. In the sign of Venus, this is especially hard. With Venus in Pisces, you may never know exactly what’s going on in your love life.

There are so many aspects to Venus in Pisces that I had to break up each area into sections. Keep reading to learn how Venus in Pisces manifests in regards to money, style, pleasure, values, attraction, relationships, and sex.

Venus In Pisces Characteristics

Venus rules so many areas that the characteristics of your Venus sign can have a large impact on your entire life. Here are the main ways that Venus in Pisces shows up.

Money and Style:

At first, those with Venus in Pisces might have trouble understanding money because they live in an almost mythical realm inside their heads. Until they’re hit with the hard realities, they might focus on their dreams or pleasures more than on earning an income.

With Venus in Pisces, you might believe that feelings and relationships are more important than money. This can manifest positively or negatively. You are probably very financially generous when you do care about someone.

Those with Venus in Pisces usually have something that feels gentle and dreamy about their looks. Many people with this placement have romantic eyes or a mysterious gaze, while others dress in sweet clothing (soft colors, flower patterns, etc.) or even just have a really soft energy.

This is a very artistic placement, which is often easy to see in the eyes as well.

Pleasure:

If you have Venus in Pisces, you take pleasure in anything creative and expressive. I personally know quite a few people with Venus in Pisces who work in scientific fields but still have a vibrant creative streak and appreciate the arts in some manner.

You may also be drawn to the occult, to gothic time periods, or to learning more about what’s “out there.” You like the big questions as well as anything mysterious or mystical.

With Venus in Pisces, you enjoy shows, movies, books, or other things that you can get lost in. Most people with this placement love learning about alternate worlds in fiction; they generally like having an escape from real life through fairy-tales. Often, these folks are nostalgic for another age or time period.

Much of your pleasure comes from dreaming about and planning the future. You love to daydream and might yearn to skip ahead to the good part.

With Venus in Pisces, your tastes might be slightly erratic. You can love something one day and hate it the next, but just as quickly pick up a new obsession. This placement is a bit changeable.

Values:

With Venus in Pisces, you value loyalty and helpfulness. You tend to be very considerate towards others but you can quickly take on too many emotion burdens and get bogged down. This can cause difficulties both physically and emotionally.

You care for others and simply want to be cherished by friends and family in return. You have a lot of room for error on the part of others, but if you feel like this care isn’t returned over time, you will eventually be emotionally drained.

Attraction:

If you have Venus in Pisces, you have a tendency to be attracted to someone who needs help or who comes with a few issues. You love the underdog! This can manifest as attraction to someone with past trauma or security issues, or can show up as interest in someone with alcohol or drug addictions.

Those with Venus in Pisces like romance and tenderness. They’re attracted to the feelings that someone brings out in them, not just physical aspects of the other person.

These folks flirt by being slightly playful, yet they can be moody and changeable at the same time. They’re a funny mix of odd and romantic.

Venus in Pisces women tend to attract men pretty easily because they have such a sensitive, feminine aura. They have a soft and sensitive allure that energetically draws others in.

Relationships/Sex:

For a Venus in Pisces person, love is a mystical experience. If you have this placement, you might feel like things are always changing in your relationships, even your own mind. The feeling of falling in love is unlike anything else for you. At the same time, nothing feels stable, so it can be difficult to discern the truth.

You easily miss red flags and tend to fall in love at first sight, but often you’re holding onto the idea of love without really knowing the other person. It’s extremely easy for a Venus in Pisces to fall fast because they look through rose colored glasses; it’s also easy for them to get hurt.

You may tell little white lies when you first meet someone, but this is because you want them to like you. A deep desire within you is to be accepted, however this manifests. You might take on the energy of whatever you feel your partner wants instead of showing your true self.

It’s easy for you to become addicted to intimacy and to go to any lengths to regain it in a relationship when it is lost. Sometimes, a person with Venus in Pisces holds onto a bad relationship too long, but there always needs to be mutual respect for it to last forever.

You have very high expectations for a relationship. You can be deeply hurt easily, but you can also forgive almost anything with enough time and effort. Your feelings (especially your gut instincts) are really important to you, so you can’t truly forgive until a situation feels resolved; your emotions may take more time to catch up to your thoughts.

Sexually, people with Venus in Pisces can get so caught up creating a passionate fantasy in their mind that it’s hard for them to enjoy anything physically when the moment comes. They tend to get stuck in their heads. They’re very sexual in their thoughts, but may have trouble acting out their fantasies (which are often grand and detailed).

Those with Venus in Pisces can be difficult for their partners to understand because they’re so changeable. They want a specific kind of romance one day but the next day they’re onto a new idea or obsession and don’t have space for romance.

In a relationship, those with Venus in Pisces can sometimes discover that they don’t actually love the other person, but are in love with the idea of their partner. This is a selfish aspect of the placement, even though these folks can also be extremely unselfish with people they care for. There is almost no in-between.

It can be tough to understand a Venus in Pisces when they don’t completely understand themselves, but at the end of the day, they just want to feel understood and want a deep, spiritual connection. Someone with Venus in Pisces is always wanting to be known and seen by a partner.

Venus In Pisces: Best & Worst Qualities

Venus in Pisces people can adapt to the moods of others, but they tend to lose themselves in the process. They want to merge desire emotional closeness, yet they neglect to set personal boundaries.

More than any other Venus sign, I find that almost every positive quality from Venus in Pisces has an equal negative. Sometimes, the positives are the negatives.

Here are the most common qualities with the Venus in Pisces placement. Keep in mind that no individual will have all of these qualities because it will depend on your specific placement (aspects, house, etc.), but many of them are likely to show up.

Best:

  • Romantic
  • Sensitive
  • Spiritual
  • Artistic
  • Creative
  • Mystical
  • Sweet
  • Generous
  • Compassionate

Worst:

  • Irresponsible
  • Day Dreamer
  • Lives In A Fantasy
  • Escapist
  • Selfish
  • Over Emotional
  • Wistful
  • Sacrificial

Venus In Pisces: Man vs. Woman

This part can get a little confusing, so bear with me as I explain it. Basically, Venus shows itself differently for someone with more masculine energy than it does for someone with more feminine energy.

It’s up to you to choose with energy you identify with more. If you’re unsure, I recommend reading the description of each energy for Venus in Pisces (below) and choosing what resonates with you.

Generally, in a woman (or someone with feminine energy), Venus will show how the person acts and what vibes they gives off towards others. When this person is flirting, they will assume many of the qualities of Venus in Pisces. These Piscean qualities will show up directly in the personality.

In a man (or someone with masculine energy), Venus will show what kind of qualities they are attracted to. How this person will act depends on their Mars sign, but their Venus sign dictates what types of energy they are drawn towards in a partner.

As we evolve and change and the gender lines blur, these distinctions become less absolute. For example, I find that most women will show a lot of the qualities of their Venus when they’re flirting, but a few of their Mars qualities will bleed through also.

It’s important to learn about both Venus and Mars. Each person has a unique combination of both qualities, although this combination may be swayed slightly depending on the person’s gender.

Lastly, a man who is ultra-comfortable with his sexuality will display many more of his Venus qualities, while a man who struggles with his sexuality probably won’t “own” these Venusian qualities, so he will instead look for them in a female partner.

The Venus In Pisces Man:

The typical Venus in Pisces man prefers feminine women. He likes partners who are fragile, delicate, gentle, and sensitive. Sometimes, the Venus in Pisces man is attracted to someone who needs him or relies on him. It can be easy for this guy to end up in slightly codependent relationships.

The Venus in Pisces man gravitates towards those who are etherial and mysterious. Hidden depth is appealing interesting to him and will make him want to get to know the person on a deeper level.

These guys will definitely shy away from anyone who is too aggressive or angry; they prefer their partners gentle. They want someone a little mystical to appeal to those dreamy parts inside them.

A Venus in Pisces man is usually an initiator, at least at first, so he’s attracted to women who give him a chance to properly initiate instead of doing it themselves. He tends to get in very deep very quickly with a new partner.

The difficulty for a Venus in Pisces man comes after he has been in a relationship for a while. He tends dive in headfirst, but at some point, the mystery will disappear as he gets to know who his partner really is.

Too much turmoil can cause the Venus in Pisces man to withdraw from a relationship either emotionally, physically, or both. He can’t stand emotional turmoil. He picks up on his partner’s energy very easy and negative feelings influence him over time.

The Venus in Pisces man can have difficulty with boundaries. Venus in Pisces is such a floaty, romantic sign that it’s very hard for him to find clarity.

He may also have a fear of his partner leaving him once he has opened up. The Venus in Pisces man is sensitive and vulnerable inside, and once he shows this to someone it’s hard for him to come back from.

At the end of the day, the Venus in Pisces man wants someone he can be sure of. He needs to know that his partner will love him no matter what.

Sexually, the Venus in Pisces man is very creative, but he wants an open woman who he feels comfortable expressing his desires with. He can come off as passive until he has someone who opens the door to their fantasies, which are very intricate.

This man will have an easier time connecting sexually when he feels emotionally connected, but he may be physically unable to engage sexually after an argument.

The Venus In Pisces Woman:

The typical Venus in Pisces woman is a thoughtful listener who will empathize even if she doesn’t know the person well. In the beginning, she’s usually on your side right away.

These women don’t usually make the first move. They yearn to be loved exclusively in a romantic way that feels almost vintage. The Venus in Pisces woman probably has millions of fantasies in her head that she is rarely brave enough to actually act out, but the desire is definitely in there.

When she first meets someone, she will unconsciously conform to be what they want. Pisces is changeable, allowing her to do this, and it’s often lovely at first for her partner to have their ideal mate. This can cause problems later in the relationship when her true self is different from what she showed initially.

If you have Venus in Pisces, you have a huge imagination. This makes you pretty engaging and witty during conversation, and you can easily “hook” people without being super outgoing; your energy is enough.

You will go to great lengths to make your partner feel loved (with presents, gestures, dates, etc.) but you need someone who is willing to play along with your games, fantasies, and mood swings in return. You don’t mean to be moody, but your changeable nature makes it impossible to remain consistent.

It can be really difficult for the Venus in Pisces woman to get a clear handle on the idea of love. Her romantic relationships might feel ever-changing or topsy-turvy no matter how stable the actual relationship is.

She needs a clear, concrete declaration of love from a partner; she doesn’t like to read signs or guess, maybe because she already struggles to formulate her own objective theories about love.

The Venus in Pisces woman falls in love quickly and may make grand plans with a partner right away, but she will often find that what she believes is love is actually just lust or attachment. She generally falls in love with the person she meets at first and doesn’t quite understand that there is a deeper soul inside the mask of the individual.

Long-term, it’s hard for the Venus in Pisces woman to find a true soulmate. She might always feel like a piece of her is missing. She desires an intensely spiritual reunion that feels 100% right, but her lesson is to learn that life on earth takes work. Many of these women look for a relationship that isn’t grounded in reality.

The goal for the Venus in Pisces woman is to be a relationship that is both romantic and real.

This woman can be more attached to both positive and negative past events than other placements. She has a dramatic flair and can be involved in really emotional fights if she feels hurt or wounded. This woman is usually very sensitive.

It’s easy for the Venus in Pisces woman to become jealous, but this is usually based on her fear that her partner will leave her, which would wreck her emotionally. Unlike other placements, she can’t separate from her emotions.

While the Venus in Pisces woman hates feeling jealous (because it sends her emotions spiraling), she might enjoy seeing her partner feel jealous or possessive once in a while.

You’ll know that the Venus in Pisces woman has settled down and found true love when she begins making realistic plans.

Turn-ons for this woman include deep, emotional bonding, as well as her partner noticing her idiosyncrasies. She might like her partner to be a bit dominant sexually while remaining emotionally attached; it’s hard for the Venus in Pisces woman to have good sex without feeling emotionally involved and loved.

This woman might be a bit shy in bed. She generally wants to please but she may need someone else to give her direction.

It can be difficult for a Venus in Pisces woman to pin down exactly what it is that she desires. Her needs are ever-changing and it’s hard for her to discern what she wants versus what her partner wants.

Her fantasies are intricate and detailed, but it’s difficult for her to actually vocalize or act on them. An open and caring partner who is willing to listen and help the Venus in Pisces woman sort out her desires is necessary to achieve a satisfactory sex life.

How To Master The Venus In Pisces Energy

At its best, Venus in Pisces is all about pure, unconditional love. What a person with Venus in Pisces needs to learn is that this love doesn’t happen instantly.

True love isn’t the romantic “love at first sight” that Venus in Pisces tend to fall into. It takes work and it takes time to truly know another person’s soul. The soul is what the Venus in Pisces person seeks to understand, but it’s on the path to this knowing where they stumble.

Venus in Pisces has the tendency to conform into whatever they think others want. They can usually sense what their partner desires energetically because Venus in Pisces is so sensitive, but the goal is to be comfortable showing their true selves rather than conforming.

It can help a person with Venus in Pisces to work on shielding their energy through various techniques in order to stop conforming to what others want.

With Venus in Pisces, you need to learn how to follow your gut feelings, not your fantasies, in order to develop relationships at the soul level.

Venus In Aquarius In The Birth Chart

Venus In Aquarius In The Birth Chart

Venus is the sign of beauty, money, pleasure, attraction, and style, so Venus in Aquarius can feel like a bit of an anomaly. Aquarius is an eccentric yet scientific sign, whereas Venus is romance and poetry. How can these two fit together?

In general, I find that this placement is neat yet unique. It’s an odd combination that works really well. Some of my favorite artists and celebrities have this placement, probably because it always causes the individual to stand out in some way.

The Venus in Aquarius symbol will look like this in your birth chart. You’ll want to note what house the placement is in, since the house will affect how Venus is expressed in your personality. Once you’ve found your Venus sign, read on and see if these qualities fit you!

Venus In Aquarius Characteristics

Venus rules many different areas, but some of these areas will show up for you more than than others. This is because your individual Venus placement is unique and has its own aspects and house.

Here are the general areas that Venus in Aquarius influences.

Money and Style:

With Venus in Aquarius, you do value money, but tend to see it as a means to an end. For you, the value of money is the experiences that it makes possible or the things you can do with it.

Unless you have other planets that point to these traits, you don’t want to have money just for the sake of being rich.

When it comes to style, you’re probably very clean. Sometimes, those with Venus in Aquarius dress extremely plain and simple, preferring function and quality over everything else, while other Venus in Aquarius individuals will dress flashy, edgy, and different.

Regardless of which style is yours, you will always make sure that your clothes are clean and neat.

Some great examples of celebrities with Venus in Aquarius are Ellen DeGeneres, Harry Styles, Kate Middleton, and Taylor Swift. While their actual styles of dress vary, they’re all extremely particular and are always immaculately dressed.

When you meet someone with Venus in Aquarius, they might look totally normal and appear simple in style, but there is always a feeling that something is different about the person. These folks carry a unique energy that makes them stand out.

Pleasure:

You don’t like following the “rules” of society with Venus in Aquarius; you take pleasure in doing things differently or making an existing process better. You’re proud to follow a unique path.

Sometimes, with Venus in Aquarius, you might enjoy “crusader mode,” especially when you’re fighting for a cause. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re involved with charities or philanthropy (although it could). You might just as easily care about children, animals, plants, or quite literally anything else. Often, this crusader mode is a natural instinct and isn’t necessarily something that involves your job or hobbies directly.

You take pleasure in thinking up new, creative or futuristic ideas. Creativity is surprisingly prominent in this placement, even though Aquarius is known as a science sign.

Values:

If you have Venus in Aquarius, you value honesty and loyalty. Aquarians are known for being off-beat, but they are a fixed sign so they definitely aren’t fickle. You want friends you can count on.

You also might be friends with an eclectic mix of people; the look of the group doesn’t matter much to you as long as the friendships are genuine and provide mental stimulation.

Intellect is very important to these folks. They value challenging conversations and might be drawn towards unusual friends. To a Venus in Aquarius, different is refreshing.

Attraction:

If you have Venus in Aquarius, you attract others through the mind. In some specific ways you’re progressive, open, and radical, and people who want that variety are drawn to you.

In social situations (especially romantic), you might be a bit aloof. This attracts those whose enjoy the chase, although this aloofness can later be difficult when you’re actually in a relationship and your partner wants more emotional intimacy.

Generally, you attract both partners and platonic friends by simply being interesting. You’re always a step ahead of others with your mental processes.

Relationships/Sex:

With Venus in Aquarius, you need a relationship without too many restrictions. Many individuals with Venus in Aquarius are in committed, monogamous relationships (despite the stereotype), but they just handle feeling smothered.

You might enjoy relationships with different rules and will need to figure out how to communicate this to your partner. Most of the time, with Venus in Aquarius, you need to feel that you’re friends with your partner as well as lovers. Companionship and intellectual compatibility are extremely important to you.

You want to be loved for your intellect and your visions above all. With a partner or even prospective partner, you need a strong mental connection. You don’t like to feel bored and will quickly leave if a relationship turns stale.

Sometimes, I find that those with Venus in Aquarius feel an attraction to partners who don’t reciprocate. They might enjoy the detachment of the other person. This is by no means a rule, but it is something that tends to happen with the placement, especially during the early stages of a relationship.

Alternatively, if a partner becomes too emotional or clingy, this individual will usually withdraw; they get claustrophobic in relationships easily. Neediness is this kiss of death for these folks.

It’s important for you to feel that your relationship is heading somewhere. You don’t like boredom or monotony. With a deeply intellectual partner, this is less likely to occur.

Venus In Aquarius: Best & Worst Qualities

With any placement, there are positive qualities as well as difficult traits. No one individual will have all of these attributes because each Venus placement is unique depending on the house and aspects. These are qualities that these folks can have, but you’ll have to look to the individual to see what fits.

Best:

  • Unconventional
  • Passionate
  • Open
  • Intellectual
  • Creative
  • Tolerant
  • Non-possessive
  • Friendly
  • Sociable
  • Honest

Worst:

  • Aloof
  • Superior
  • Oddball
  • Detached
  • Impersonal

Venus In Aquarius: Man Versus Woman

This part can get a little confusing, so bear with me as I explain it. Basically, Venus shows itself differently for someone with more masculine energy than it does for someone with more feminine energy.

It’s up to you to choose with energy you identify with more. If you’re unsure, I recommend reading the description of each energy for Venus in Aquarius (below) and choosing what resonates with you.

Generally, in a woman (or someone with feminine energy), Venus will show how the person acts and what vibes they gives off towards others. When this person is flirting, they will assume many of the qualities of Venus in Aquarius. These Aquarian qualities will show up directly in the personality.

In a man (or someone with masculine energy), Venus will show what kind of qualities they are attracted to. How this person will act depends on their Mars sign, but their Venus sign dictates what types of energy they are drawn towards in a partner.

As we evolve and change and the gender lines blur, these distinctions become less absolute. For example, I find that most women will show a lot of the qualities of their Venus when they’re flirting, but a few of their Mars qualities will bleed through also.

It’s important to learn about both Venus and Mars. Each person has a unique combination of both qualities, although this combination may be swayed slightly depending on the person’s gender.

Lastly, a man who is ultra-comfortable with his sexuality will display many more of his Venus qualities, while a man who struggles with his sexuality probably won’t “own” these Venusian qualities, so he will instead look for them in a female partner.

Venus In Aquarius Man

The typical Venus in Aquarius man is attracted to partners who are a little different. Most people picture the stereotypical Aquarius hippie, but his attraction can lean towards people who are different in any specific area, especially depending on the house his Venus falls in.

For example, I personally know Venus in Aquarius men who are attracted to partners who parent their children differently, work in a job that’s a little divergent from what society expects, dress eccentrically, are into vintage music, etc. His ideal partner will be unique in a specific way that’s not the same for every Venus in Aquarius man. These differences might not even be obvious to others, but to him this is what sparks attraction.

The regular Venus in Aquarius man tends to be relaxed and to go with the flow in social situations. He doesn’t like to be bored and needs a partner who is up for talking about intellectual topics and big ideas. Dullness and routine will kill any attraction immediately for the Venus in Aquarius man.

Independence is especially attractive to the Venus in Aquarius man. He wants his partner to have their own hobbies, talents, or dreams. He won’t be interested in anyone who becomes too needy or clingy; most Venus in Aquarius men do want to have a committed relationship with the right person, but they need it to be equal and intellectual, if not exciting and different. The Venus in Aquarius man is never totally conventional in a relationship.

The Venus in Aquarius man probably won’t mind if his partner is a bit erratic mentally. She might be messy, might start new projects constantly, or come up with new, exciting ideas. It probably doesn’t bother him to come home to his house redecorated or to a spouse who suddenly switches careers.

When he’s first getting to know a new partner, coldness can actually be a turn-on for the Venus in Aquarius man. He doesn’t mind if his partner is a bit aloof, as long as they’re willing to discuss big ideas when they do spend time together. He can sometimes like the chase.

Physically, the Venus in Aquarius man is just as different. He doesn’t typically go for the most attractive girl in the room, especially when choosing a long-term partner. These men are often attracted to someone considered plain by conventional standards because they see more than just beauty: the mind is most important to these folks.

Venus In Aquarius Woman

The Venus in Aquarius woman is a free spirit who is strong-willed. In the areas where her Venus shines, she always follows her own path. For example, she might eat vegan, choose to school her kids differently, or work in a career that makes her a bit of an outcast. Sometimes, these differences are more subtle; for example, I know a Venus in Aquarius woman who is obsessed with collecting vintage items and only wears vintage clothing. Whatever this woman does, she does it without hesitation.

The Venus in Aquarius woman gets bored quickly and may jump from one project to another. Her dream man is also independent and solves his own problems easily. She doesn’t like to be needed too much. Sometimes, the Venus in Aquarius woman will put up with clinginess, but it’s a turn-off for her.

Her ideal partner is social and outgoing in groups. She also wants someone flexible who is up for anything, no matter how radical it may seem. Regardless of the stereotype of Aquarius (which is often free love), she does want someone trustworthy and loyal.

In a relationship, she can be a bit cold at times. She might not show a ton of affection, but that doesn’t mean that she doesn’t feel love; the Venus in Aquarius woman just has a hard time showing it.

This woman can even be kind of cool or cold in bed. The idea of sex is usually more exciting than the actual act, and by the time she gets down to it, she might not be interested anymore. She can have a tough time letting loose in the romance and sex department.

Even though the Venus in Aquarius woman is “different” or unusual, I find that these women have pretty traditional relationships. They typically don’t mind being committed as long as they have their independence. They enjoy relationships where each partner has their own hobbies, talents, or work, and doesn’t need to be together 24/7. They simply need emotional space from time to time.

The Venus in Aquarius woman is good at being friends with the opposite sex and keeping it strictly platonic. These women often have a lot of guy friends (especially earlier on in life) who they just see as friends. There is a clear line for them between friendship and romance, although they need both in a relationship.

How To Master The Venus In Aquarius Energy

The key for someone with Venus in Aquarius is to celebrate their differences and be themselves without apology, yet to also remember that other people have feelings. It’s easy for a Venus in Aquarius person to get so caught up in their own unique experiences that they forget to treat others nicely.

The natural defense mechanism for these folks is to turn away or grow cold, but they have a huge amount of warmth underneath, they just need to remember to access it and to treat others how they want to be treated.

Black Moon Lilith Astrology: The Wild Woman In The Signs & Houses

Black Moon Lilith Astrology: The Wild Woman In The Signs & Houses

In astrology, Black Moon Lilith is one of the coolest points. We all know Lilith, whether from mythology or because she popped up as a character in our favorite supernatural shows/books, but there isn’t much concrete information about Lilith when it comes to astrology.

One thing is always certain: Lilith is powerful. Even in astrology, I’ve found this to be 100% true.

Regardless of the sign that she’s in, Lilith has both positive and negative qualities in the chart. Your Lilith shows how you can become obsessive, but also reveals your secret desires that aren’t necessarily bad. In fact, Lilith in astrology can be quite empowering for anyone, not just women.

I’ll go over every single Lilith placement by sign and house in this post, but first I want to give you a small bit of background on Lilith so you know what you’re dealing with.

Who Is Lilith In Astrology?

There are so many myths that have some variation of Lilith in them. It can be hard to figure out what the original myth was or to trace Lilith to her origins.

The most popular myth describes Lilith as the first wife to Adam in the garden of Eden. Lilith and Adam were made of the same substance, so she wasn’t subservient to him. They disagreed on many things; Adam wanted to dominate over Lilith (both in everyday life and sexually) and Lilith refused to let him.

Lilith became enraged and screamed out God’s name, then she disappeared voluntarily (or was exiled, depending on the version) and lived in a cave near the Red Sea. According to some texts, the caves were filled with demons. Lilith bread with them, thus she is known as the mother of demons. The myth says that Lilith had hundreds of children within a week or so.

Adam appealed to God who sent three angels to try and convince Lilith to return. Some legends say that one of these angels was Lucifer, who fell in love with Lilith.

The angels threatened to kill 100 of her children a day, but she still refused to return, so God created Eve out of Adam’s rib. Even was a much “better” helpmate, but her creation also endowed the masculine with power over the feminine, because she was subservient to Adam.

Some legends say that Lilith goes about slaying human babies as her revenge against the angels and God who continuously kill her children. In most Jewish cultures, Lilith was known as a demon, but the ancient Babylonians actually revered her as a goddess of the feminine. In those texts, she is seen as powerful and protective.

Wherever Lilith pops up in mythology, you will almost always find the theme of the patriarchy forcing women into submission. Originally, it wasn’t meant to be political at all. Instead, Lilith represents the power within us that can never be snuffed out, regardless of what’s happening in the world.

In astrology, Lilith is the wild feminine sign. She shows many different elements that the traditional planets don’t encompass. Lilith wasn’t used in traditional astrology, but I personally think that’s because the qualities that Lilith brings weren’t recognized until very recently.

There are a few different Lilith “points” (Dark Moon Lilith and Black Moon Lilith) used in astrology, as well as a Lilith asteroid. 

The most common point to look at is Black Moon Lilith; I also find it to be the most accurate. Most astrology software will only show you Black Moon Lilith. Dark Moon Lilith and the Lilith asteroid certainly have their uses, but I find them to be much more limited in terms of what they can show.

For example, the asteroid Lilith tends to show how an individual expresses activism. I feel that Black Moon Lilith is a much better indicator of the wild feminine as well as the themes of shame, repression, primal instincts, and rejection. Black Moon Lilith shows a well-rounded, holistic view of Lilith-like qualities in your life.

For the purposes of this blog post, I’ll refer to Black Moon Lilith strictly as Lilith from here on. If you’re interested in asteroid Lilith or Dark Moon Lilith then stay tuned – I will write another post about these astrology points in the future!

What Will Your Black Moon Lilith Astrology Sign Show?

Lilith will show you the animal instincts that you repress as well as where you feel shame. She governs sexuality in the deep, unconscious sense. She will also show the area of life where you have experienced rejection, either from the self or from others.

Sometimes, there is a binging and purging cycle where Lilith is concerned; how you do this will show through the Lilith astrology sign and house where the point sits.

Generally, Lilith shows areas where you struggle and feel like you just can’t win. Some of these unconscious conflicts will define much of your life.

Lilith is also pretty sexual in nature, so this placement can show what you want during sex, although you might repress these desires, and your secret fantasies.

I find that Lilith is usually karmic, so these qualities are with us for life. There are ways to work with Lilith and bring out the empowering qualities of the sign without becoming self-destructive, but recognize that many of these issues probably stem from past lives.

Lilith in the signs is just as important as Lilith in the houses. I find that reading each description separately then fitting the pieces together (almost like a puzzle) can help you figure out your Lilith sun.

Unlike your Venus or Mars, Lilith is really complex and specific to the individual. Don’t worry if every piece doesn’t make sense – figure out what does work for you and go from there. Symbolism is always important when you’re working with Lilith.

Black Moon Lilith Astrology Through the Signs:

Keep in mind that because you have an individual chart, it’s totally OK if not every part of these descriptions fits. I put in info for all parts of each sign, so you’ll have to see which sentences fit with your chart (based on house and aspects).

Lilith in the signs is important, but I find that Lilith in the houses (below) is equally important. I recommend that you read both descriptions and see how they can fit together into your life. It can take some time to piece together but there is always some common ground between the sign and the house that Lilith is in.

Here are my personal definitions for Lilith in the signs.

Lilith In Aries:

If you have Lilith in Aries, you have trouble properly asserting yourself. You have a fear of taking the lead or becoming a commander, yet you also possess a strong, deep desire to do so.

This often manifests as someone who forces others to follow them and takes power as much as possible, or alternatively as someone who gives up their power to others.

Sometimes, there is a back and forth between these two extremes. You might have trouble balancing leadership and power. It can be hard for you to figure out when it’s appropriate to exert yourself and when you should let others take control.

Impulse control can be an issue for those with Lilith in Aries. Sometimes you have too much impulse control and don’t act when you should, but other times you show no restraint.

The goal is to develop personal power that comes from within. True personal power can never be taken away or extinguished.

With Lilith in Aries, you believe that power comes from outside of you. The goal is to find your power within; it has always been there. No one can take it from you. In fact, the only real power you have is already inside of you.

Lilith In Taurus:

Lilith in Taurus is all about possessions and status. Typically, you have a deep seated desire for things. There are a few ways that this desire can manifest in your life.

Firstly, you might do your absolute best to accumulate massive amounts of possessions, wealth, and status. This could be a singularly focused goal and you’ll stop at nothing to achieve it.

Alternatively, you might turn away completely from possessions and status, and renounce all “earthly” things as bad.

Individuals with Lilith in Taurus sometimes swing back and forth between these two extremes or get stuck on one end of the spectrum. Regardless of how your desires manifest, you will never feel truly satisfied or sated.

More than any other placement, Lilith in Taurus has the potential for extremism; many powerful people have this placement.

Of course, power can be used in many different ways, so this isn’t necessarily good or bad. Some of the best world leaders have had Lilith in Taurus as well as some of the most destructive in history.

You might have a suppressed sex drive or be unexpressive during sex. With Taurus in Lilith, you’re probably extremely contained; the body isn’t very expressive.

It’s easy for those with Lilith in Taurus to get stuck in the superficial side of the Taurus sign. At its best, Taurus is earthly sensuality that flows, but with Lilith in Taurus, it can feel like this flow is blocked.

If you have Black Moon Lilith in Taurus, you need to connect with the earth and with your roots. It can even be helpful to connect with the root chakra, which is often unbalanced.

The goal is to learn how to transmit the need for possessions or status to the higher plane, where Taurus is connected to all things. You will then understand how to make energy flow and will have an easier time getting what you want.

Initially, you try to force the energy through in order to cover up your deep shame. However, Lilith in Taurus can be really wonderful if you’re able to create an energetic flow. To do this, you must first work through your unconscious shame that the placement brings.

Lilith In Gemini:

If you have Black Moon Lilith in Gemini, you can be stunted in the way you speak or express yourself. There is usually some type of issue with communication whether it’s in groups, in one-on-one conversations, or spiritual communication with your guides.

You may be stuck in your own head with Lilith in Gemini, especially during sex. It can be hard for you to connect to your body. I find that these types often like wordplay and fun, expressive sexual play, but they do need to feel connected to their partner and want to know that their partner sees them.

On the darker side, you can have an intense dual nature with Lilith in Gemini. You can develop mental illness or be attracted to those who have mental illness. In fact, you may be drawn towards partners who have a bit of a “crazy” side, because this is what you stuff down in your own psyche.

Connecting to your senses, to nature, and to your animal instincts can help to balance out the duality found with Black Moon Lilith in Gemini. You’re super smart naturally, but this can be difficult for your because your mind works at warped speed. You may even come off as slightly erratic.

This will be a lifelong struggle, but there are positives that you wouldn’t have without Lilith in Gemini. You will need to learn to become more grounded, but you are blessed to have such a sharp, acute mind.

Lilith In Cancer:

Black Moon Lilith in Cancer almost always has to do with mother issues, or at least some sort of problem with the nurture that the child received. If you have Lilith in Cancer, you were shamed for your emotions at some point.

Sometimes the Lilith in Cancer individual has a scary past (such as losing a parent, an abusive childhood, etc.), while other folks just had a general lack of traditional nurture in childhood.

Now, out of fear, you might keep these emotions stuffed way down or avoid emotional situations altogether so that others don’t notice you even have feelings.

Most individuals with Lilith in Cancer try to stuff their emotions but aren’t very successful, so either the emotions come out sideways. The person might become depressed or develop escapist behaviors like addictions.

Sometimes, the Lilith in Cancer individual can simultaneously become needy of partners, friends, or even their parents. They are trying to make up for what they feel was a lack of nurture.

Sex for these individuals may feel disconnected and cold until they can embrace their emotional nature. It’s hard for them to connect with a partner on a deep level.

The “wildness” of Black Moon Lilith shows through emotions for Lilith in Cancer people, so they feel the need to try and shut them off their feelings, but then they are disconnect from the universe and from All That Is.

The healing path for those with Lilith in Cancer is to acknowledge, feel, and then release their emotions in a healthy manner.

The goal for someone with Black Moon Lilith in Cancer is to be present and really feel themselves in the moment without fear or shame.

The person needs to have the courage to access and feel these emotions, and respond with his/her whole being in the moment – to be present and to feel. These people can have trouble letting go of a scary or sad past.

Lilith In Leo:

Black Moon Lilith in Leo is all about the desire to be admired. You have a deep need for glory or esteem from others. This craving might feel shameful to you and may be something you try to hide, or instead you might go to any lengths to get fame and approval.

Generally, Lilith in Leo will show itself in one of two ways. 

1. You are attracted to powerful people and seek admiration from them. For example, you mind find yourself in a relationship with someone who you consider to be influential or important, even in your group of friends or family circle (if not extremely publicly).

You find that it is safer to be with someone important rather than gain importance yourself, which feels shameful. Subconsciously, you feel that if powerful people notice you, this must mean that you’re important, too.

2. Alternatively, you seek power or influence for yourself. You desire to show off and be noticed, but you also have a deep fear of being criticized. You feel so unremarkable inside that you must make yourself appear important to others by any means possible.

Some very famous individuals and politicians have Lilith in Leo. It isn’t necessarily a bad placement and can give you the motivation that you need to achieve fame, but if the ego becomes too involved then it can turn unfavorable.

Regardless of how Black Moon Lilith in Leo is expressed, this Lilith astrology placement is all about what others think of you and about your concern over how the world and the masses see you.

At its worst, Lilith and Leo can cause either a major lack of self-esteem and even mental illness or narcissism.

At its best, the individual Lilith in Leo wants to be admired for deserving something. When you transmute this energy, you won’t feel shame about your desire to be admired or have an unhealthy ego, but will try to become someone who is worthy of esteem.

Lilith In Virgo:

If you have Lilith in Virgo, you have issues with perfection. You feel a deep sense of shame that in some area (usually the area of the house that your Lilith astrology sign is in), you aren’t perfect. You might even feel like you have a deep dark flaw in this area.

To try and dispose of these feelings, you will react one of two ways.

You might try to be perfect but never quite reach the purity that you seek, which only deepens your sense of shame at being flawed.

Alternatively, you give up on tasks halfway through (because you know you can never hide your flaw) and feel that there’s no point in even trying. You may do some combination of both or swing back and forth between the two extremes.

Sexually, those with Lilith in virgo are either repressed, cold, and “virginal,” or they’re obsessed with being good and perfect in bed. They might struggle to understand that they should derive satisfaction from sexual acts, too. They may think only of pleasing their partner.

Lilith in Virgo stems from a lack of confidence in the self and a deep-seated belief that something about the self is fundamentally wrong. To heal this way of thinking, you’ll need to accept that perfection is impossible; realize that the Universe is imperfect for a reason. Learn to find the perfect in imperfection and to accept yourself as you are.

Lilith In Libra:

I find that Lilith in Libra expresses itself in one of two ways.

If you have Lilith in Libra, you may run into relationship issues. You probably have an unconscious need to have a partnership, but something might block you from this, whether it’s society, your parents, or your own shame about that fact that you want a partnership.

Black Moon Lilith in Libra, especially in the relationship sense, is a difficult placement to heal. It is a lifelong lesson to learn how to be strong on your own yet coexist in a partnership, but this is what you need to evolve your Lilith astrology sign.

The key is for you to learn how to be in healthy relationships without sacrificing yourself, feeling guilty, or avoiding things altogether when it gets tough to handle.

Alternatively, you have a need to please others, but may sacrifice yourself to do it. You swing back and forth between trying to indulge others and satisfy yourself. You might feel a sense of constant guilt that you haven’t done enough to help other people. Other times, you might all but ignore the plight of others in order to please yourself.

In this scenario, you need to work on your Black Moon Lilith in Libra in order to find the middle ground between helping others and feeling satisfied with your own actions.

Lilith In Scorpio:

Lilith in Scorpio is a powerful but potentially self-destructive placement. With Lilith in Scorpio, you have a strong energy or magnetism that draws others in. This smoldering energy is easily recognizable by people around you.

You generally hunger for something deeper, whether this is a more profound relationship or more knowledgable spiritual state. Look to the house Lilith sits in to see where you always feel less than satisfied.

With Lilith in Scorpio, you may have a tendency to self-destruct; you can easily get so trapped in past negative traumas that you start to feel like you’re drowning in life. It’s hard for you to escape patterns once you begin them.

In the darkest moments, you may have a tendency towards revenge. Black Moon Lilith in Scorpio definitely knows how to hold a grudge.

To transmute Lilith in Scorpio into positive energy, you will want to work on breaking patterns of self-destruction and caring for yourself. You will need to let go of your attachments to things (as you have a tendency to get over-attached) and to learn how to be okay with whatever comes your way, without going to a dark place.

The lesson for Lilith in Scorpio is to learn the value of trust in the Universe.

Lilith In Sagittarius:

If you have Lilith in Sagittarius, you probably love living in excess. In some manner, you like to go overboard and don’t care about the consequences. You like to push your boundaries.

In Sagittarius, Black Moon Lilith can feel compelled to either travel quite a bit or to try new, exciting, dangerous activities. These folks aren’t content with ordinary experiences. They can feel a deep sense of restlessness that they can never quench.

At your core with Lilith in Sagittarius, you need to be independent. This can manifest in a lot of different ways (depending on the house and aspects) but can cause problems in work, relationships, etc. because this need is so intense.

You also want to be somewhat independent sexually and at the very least need a partner who is willing to try all types of new stuff. Connection probably isn’t as important to you as getting frisky in different places, trying new games, etc.

The path to healing Lilith in Sagittarius is to learn the value of independence without feeling constricted by relationships. Working through the fear of being tied down is a good place to begin.

With Black Moon Lilith in Sagittarius, you have a false fear of constriction. You try to avoid dealing with it, but in order to be successful and emotionally stable, you must turn around and look at the thing you’re afraid of.

Lilith In Capricorn:

If you have Lilith in Capricorn, you have a deep fear of failure. You need to be successful in some area (look to the house) and feel that you will be annihilated if you’re not.

Those with Lilith in Capricorn have a strong sense of responsibility. If you do fail, you feel responsible to others and quite literally can’t live with your failure. Your sense of duty can be way overboard, even if this isn’t something you express to others. You can start to feel like a slave to your own self-imposed duties.

If you do experience defeat with Lilith in Capricorn, you can experience strong cognitive dissonance and have a complete breakdown. You are, however, good at getting back up on your feet after you’ve fallen.

Sexually, those with Black Moon Lilith in Capricorn are either more on the dominant side or a bit repressed and cold. Alternatively, they can feel that they have a responsibility to create a fulfilling sexual encounter for others, but this can become a burden as well.

Lilith in Capricorn is all about learning to take responsibility for yourself, first. The weight of the world doesn’t need to be on your shoulders.

Lilith In Aquarius:

With Lilith in Aquarius, you want to be part of the crowd but simultaneously feel ashamed for even trying. You never quite fit in; it is your deepest desire to belong in a group, but it often feels impossible.

It is a basic human need to want companionship, so it’s not crazy that you want to fit in. However, with Black Moon Lilith in Aquarius, you do possess qualities that make you intrinsically different.

In fact, you may sometimes feel like an alien on this planet. You’re often ashamed of these qualities that make you stand apart.

The path to healing Lilith in Aquarius is to find the benefits in these unique qualities and to recognize that you are different for a reason. It can also be helpful to find likeminded individuals. In this way, you can be different together.

Be careful that, with Lilith in Aquarius, you don’t spend time chasing people who want you to conform. Accept your differences and then find friends who do the same.

Lilith In Pisces:

In Pisces, Lilith has trouble with balance. She causes you to swing from one extreme to the next with no middle ground and nowhere solid to stand.

I find that Lilith in Pisces wants to escape because she isn’t content with reality, usually for some good reasons that stem from childhood and/or past life trauma. Black Moon Lilith in Pisces prefers fantasy over reality.

Sometimes, the trauma that causes this escapism seems “minor” on the surface but caused a huge rift within your core self. If you have Lilith in Pisces, never assume that any trauma is minor to you, because everything that happens to you is important.

Lilith in Pisces has a cycle of binging and purging, thought not necessarily with eating. This cycle can occur with food, but also with alcohol, drugs, tattoos, fantasies, music, recognition, winning, and just about anything else that can be done to the extreme.

This cycle, and the Lilith in Pisces energy in general, can create a cloud of depression, anxiety/nervous energy, or other mental illnesses.

A key blocker in empowering Lilith in Pisces is the fact that many people with this placement remain in denial over these issues because they are too painful to face. Instead, they believe that it’s better to continue with their fantasies or addictions, even though this hurts them in the long run.

The key with Black Moon Lilith in Pisces is to learn moderation and self-empowerment. Many of these individuals benefit from therapy to help them see who they are rather than trying to be someone else, but much of this work has to be done internally, too.

Those with Lilith in Pisces need to learn to love themselves and their own life rather than trying to escape it someone. There is beauty in every life and every area on Earth, but Lilith in Pisces creates a block so that the individual can’t see this.

The first step is to overcome this barrier in order to live an authentic existence. These folks need to first draw a line between reality and fantasy, then work to find what’s beautiful about their own reality.

Lilith Through the Houses

Unlike other planets, Lilith changes a lot depending on what house she’s in. I recommend putting equal weight on the sign and the house. Sometimes it can even be helpful to study the house your Lilith astrology sign is in first, then flavor that description according to the sign.

Lilith In The 1st House:

In the 1st house, Lilith is pretty apparent to everyone else. It’s hard for you to hide what you desire, even if you feel ashamed about it, and it bleeds through in almost every area of your life.

You might feel dissatisfied no matter what, especially in the areas of your Lilith astrology sign. For example, with Lilith in Taurus, you’re constantly dissatisfied with your home, your possessions, or your image.

Lilith in the 1st house is extremely personal. She may start to feel like she is a critical part of who you are, even if there are some negative feelings associated with these qualities. You may live with a recurrent sense of shame that you can’t quite identify.

Sometimes (not always), Lilith in the 1st house can cause body issues. A great example of someone with Lilith in the 1st house is Marilyn Monroe, whose Lilith in Leo also sat in her 1st house. She felt intense shame about herself, her personality, her looks, etc., yet she needed to be affirmed by other people in order to appease her Lilith astrology sign.

The 1st house is an area that governs our reactions rather than our intellect or logic. For this reason, it can be especially difficult to work with Lilith in the 1st house, because she is reactionary and subconscious.

The idea is always to transmute Lilith to her highest form rather than the lower base instincts that cause us pain. With Lilith in the 1st house, examine every single push and action you take that is Lilith-based. Dig deeper and look for your root motivation rather than trying to appease yourself in the moment to get rid of the feelings of shame.

For example, someone with Lilith in Taurus might constantly buy things or try to live up to a certain image because they feel less-than without material items. This individual will want to examine their childhood and past lives to see where this idea came from and to heal the inner self. This is the path to a healthy, actualized Lilith.

Lilith In The 2nd House:

In the second house, Lilith is all about the darker impulses concerning money, possessions, survival, or image. You might be obsessed with one of these things and have trouble seeing the bigger picture.

Much of this fixation comes from fear. To avoid dealing with Lilith in the 2nd house (which usually stems from the idea that you are nothing or have nothing/no security), you try even harder to achieve things.

Others rejected you in some way that deeply injured you, and in your mind, the only way to “beat” that rejection (that now lives within you) is to show them how wrong they were. Whether this rejection happened in a past life or in this life doesn’t matter; the outcome is the same.

You have a fear of failing, of being left with nothing, or of being no one, but the cause for the fear lives within you. If you truly accepted yourself, you wouldn’t need to live in fear of others seeing what you lack, or think you lack. The path to healing Lilith in the 2nd house is self-acceptance, self-love, and inner child work.

There is nothing wrong with desiring material objects, but everything is good in moderation. When Lilith in the 2nd house gets out of control, she can quickly cause obsession. The goal is to keep Lilith in check while still celebrating her by achieving authentic success that feels right.

Lilith In The 3rd House:

With Lilith in the 3rd house, you went through experiences that created a wound. This was when you were open to the world and before you were guarded, though you now have strong walls up.

This wound was created in childhood and had to do with communication or truth. The incident may have revolved around writing, speaking, social anxiety, learning disabilities, or a disagreement about what’s true and what’s false. You are now guarded around how you communicate.

You might stay silent in social situations, or maybe you mold yourself to what you believe others want to see and hear. In some way, your communication is inauthentic. You sensor yourself due to fear of judgment and even punishment.

The healing path is to begin interacting with the environment in a natural, authentic way, instead of in a way that you think others want you to act.

As you heal Lilith in the 3rd house, you’ll come to learn that we can all have different truths and yet they can all be real. Focus on interacting with nature and with energy rather than just verbally with others. Use the words that you want and speak what comes naturally to you.

Lilith In The 4th House:

If you have Lilith in the 4th house, you’ll find that she manifests the most in early childhood, home life, family, and your relationship with your parents.

Your parents may not have created the issues that Lilith causes, but they probably didn’t know how to handle her within you. Therefore, you either suppressed Lilith because you were taught that showing her is wrong, or you were unable to suppress Lilith and felt that you were rejected because of the Lilith astrology placement.

A lot of times, Lilith in the 4th house has to do with the shame that you feel within yourself, and most especially the self-disgust that you felt as a child. Even though you’re older, these feelings never leave you.

Look to the sign that Lilith is in to see what type of shame you felt and how it manifested. Lilith in the 4th house most especially needs to be healed, because it is carried with you in almost every action until you address it.

Inner child work is crucial to heal Lilith in the 4th house, as is finding love and forgiveness for yourself. This placement in particular may take some time to heal.

Lilith In The 5th House:

With Lilith in the 5th house, you probably had some trauma surrounding your friends and/or peers during childhood. You were shamed for something in youth (the way you played, the way you looked, etc.).

You probably had some Lilith themes in your play as a child, and this was deemed bad or taboo by society, especially other children and their parents. You were told that you were socially inappropriate.

These folks are often flashy, expressive, or futuristic, but it is before their time and so they are rejected by society.

The rejection creates a deep shame that is expressed in one of two ways:

First, you could express your Lilith more and obsessively show off Lilith qualities to others. The shame makes you angrily flaunt all of the intrinsically good qualities that you feel you have, but you still don’t accept them within you. This certainly brings attention to Lilith but it doesn’t heal her within.

Alternatively, you could repress the qualities and try to be “normal.” Sometimes, you might live a double life, while other times you try to pretend that these Lilith in the 5th house qualities don’t exist, even to yourself. Over time, the pressure inside you builds will probably be released all at once in a blow up. You might also feel empty, as though an essential piece of who you are is missing.

Sometimes there are issues with children when you have Lilith in the 5th house. The same qualities that make you an outcast in society can either cause you to not have children or cause issues with your children.

The path to healing Lilith in the 5th house isn’t to show off or to repress Lilith. Instead, the work is to shift the focus off of others and onto the self, even if this isn’t culturally acceptable. Find a way to be your authentic self and feel good about yourself. Focus on you before worrying about others.

If this isn’t possible, then in some cases you might need to leave your family or community to find a place in the world where you can be at peace within yourself. Lilith in the 5th house has many ties to Lilith in the myth who chose to leave Adam and live in exile rather than pretend to be someone she wasn’t.

The path is not really to show others anything. It is to shift the focus off others onto the self and self expression through authentic means, even if it isn’t culturally fit. It is not doing this in a way to stick it to others, but in an authentic version of serving the self.

Lilith In The 6th House:

In the 6th house, Lilith can have a lot to do with mentors, whether this means teachers, parents, friends’ parents, bosses, or other authorities in the position of mentorship. If you have Lilith in the 6th house, the way that you accomplish tasks might not always line up with what your mentors and what society consider to be the “correct” way to do things.

You might have a different way of going about things and are probably scolded for that. This can show up in school, in your professional life, participating in hobbies, etc. The lesson is to honor your own individual way of doing things, even if others don’t appreciate it, and to do what feels right to you.

Alternatively, if this doesn’t fit, then you may have instead adopted a mentality of servitude or slavery in order to survive in the past (whether this means in childhood or in a past life). You get hung up on what you feel you “should” do and have trouble finding your own inner voice when it comes to day-to-day, regular life. You struggle with what other people think and want you to do versus what you feel in your gut.

Similarly, the lesson is to embrace Lilith and focus on what feels right for you. Lilith is different and is often an outcast because she followers her heart, and this is what you must learn to do. The Universe will send you small lessons each day to help you build the groundwork to follow your gut instincts rather than the voice of others or of your “conscience.

Lilith In The 7th House:

In the 7th house, Lilith represents all the qualities that you try to suppress. More than any other placement, you might have trouble seeing the qualities of your Lilith astrology sign in yourself.

You look for a partner who does have the qualities of your Lilith astrology since because with Lilith in the 7th house, you don’t know how to express these qualities for yourself. You might see some of the qualities in you, but most are suppressed. There is a part of yourself that you’re not owning and using to its fullest potential.

With Lilith in the 7th house, you’re bound to end up in a relationship that has a lot of the qualities of your Lilith sign and a vague Lilith-like energy. The relationship might be taboo, on-again-off-again, or obsessive.

The key is not to avoid these relationships, but to own your Lilith astrology sign along-with your partner. You attract partners who embody your Lilith sign because they can teach you how to express it; you already have everything you need to do so, you just need practice.

At first, this may be difficult and may cause difficult relationships or intense break-ups, but over time these qualities can actually be very beneficial to you.

Lilith In The 8th House:

With Lilith in the 8th house, you experienced some sort of trauma or pain either early in your life or in a past life. This is a very intense placement caused by an extreme wound.

This trauma creates a profound fear. You might feel like you’re always running from fear with Lilith in the 8th house. Your Lilith astrology sign will clarify more about what this fear is and how it was created.

This fear will cause you to control, whether this means you try to control others, your surroundings, or your own mind. You believe that control will stop the fear from existing, but unfortunately this strategy doesn’t work longterm. If you don’t deal with your trauma, the fear will only grow stronger.

Black Moon Lilith in the 8th house is a very transformative placement. Most people with Lilith in the 8th house either transform and transcend or self-destruct.

The lesson is to learn how to trust, not in others, but in the Universe. You only need control when you believe that the Universe doesn’t have your back. Figure out what your fear is and what your trauma is, then look at what you learned from the trauma. Why did the Universe allow this to happen? Everything is always for your highest purpose.

Oddly enough, I find that those with Lilith in the 8th house sometimes have the potential to make money through slightly taboo ways. Be careful of staying on the right side of the law and go with your gut if this happens to fit.

Those with Lilith in the 8th house are super deep people and their relationships have a crazy amount of depth. It’s a wonderful placement if you’re able to transcend and work through the fear to transmit Lilith for good.

Lilith In The 9th House:

If you have Lilith in the 9th house, you think differently about certain topics (religion, philosophy, culture, higher education, sexuality, etc.) but are not able to express yourself in order to fit into society.

Your Lilith makes you feel different because she doesn’t agree with society about something; this will reflect more specifically based on what sign your Lilith is.

You may try to conform to society despite your Lilith in the 9th house and hide your differences, or you might flaunt your differences due to insecurity and flaunt your Lilith, but at your core you don’t accept yourself with your differences.

The path to healing is to first figure out where you think differently and why, then work to accept yourself as you are and trust that there is a good reason for these differences.

Lilith In The 10th House:

Lilith in the 10th house is all about your public image. Your public self (meaning even the self you show to acquaintances) carries the energy of Lilith that you feel the need to hide.

You probably want to be accepted by the public but the only way to do that is to suppress Lilith. Your Lilith astrology sign makes you different from others in a key way that might make others uncomfortable, yet Lilith is a part of who you are.

For some people, Lilith in the 10th house can make it difficult to find
