Regulus

Regulus is one of the most benefic fixed stars in a chart. If you have an orb up to 5 degrees (most astrologers use up to 2 degrees however to be more correct) then you were born with the metaphorical blood of royalty in your veins. This is said because Regulus is one of the brightest stars in our sky, as well as laying on the ecliptic. In ancient times, Regulus was seen as the fixed star of royalty and the giver of great riches and success. He is the heart of the lion. The embodiment of Mars and Jupiter’s combined energy. He is fierce, but fair. Generous, loyal, and deeply respected. Though there is risk of going to far- those with Regulus strong in their chart may be too tempted by ego and let it get the best of them. In their rise to fame they may falter because of arrogance. If they do reach successful heights and let fame get to their head (either ignoring Jupiter’s goodwill or pushing boundaries too far) a steep decline can take place and a fall from grace. This can be avoided by being true to your heart and using your passion for the benefit of others instead of feeding your ego.

There is definitely an aspect of courage and honor associated with Regulus. This can be open, physical bravery, and the urge to jump into action when you or another is in danger. It can show military honors or intense respect by others for things you have accomplished that others dared not to try. This is especially so when this fixed star is in conjunction to your Midheaven. It may be more of an internal energy when coupled with your moon, yet the desire is still strong to be recognized for that internal bravery since you may not have the means to show it. Either way- you’re a great person to have around in high pressure situations.

For those who don’t have Regulus in aspect, the house placement will show where you will use this Mars/Jupiter combination energy- therefor where you can be successful and find motivation to expand this area of life. It will add a destined sort of vigor to that house and its affairs.

Saturn’s Chains

Saturn is a giant ball of gas floating out in space, complete with extremely fast swirling winds and a core of iron and rock. It’s is somewhat intimidating with its guards surrounding it in the form of rock and ice, like a ring of warriors waiting to attack in case anyone or anything tries to get close. As if the rings around Saturn weren’t enough company to keep, it has at least 62 moons that orbit it. Its biggest moon is Titan, being a little larger than Mercury. Some of its other moons are quite strange, holding different shapes than the traditional sphere.

Saturn, in astrology, is not an easy persona to peg. He can sway from extremely suffocating to outright justice. Mercy isn’t exactly Saturn’s strong suit. Justice, however, is. He gives out rules and puts boundaries on everything. He works hard to teach us how to work hard. He accepts responsibility and sees ways around it as pathetic. He does things the hard way. Saturn is structure. Saturn is the master of time and makes sure you don’t forget that. He organizes, perseveres, and doesn’t take short cuts. He disciplines roughly in order to get the seriousness of his cause across. He is, as he sees it, the ultimate authority. And he very well may be in many people’s lives since we live on a material plane and see this as the ultimate. He bows to no one. He nods his head only to those who have stood his long, tedious trials and come out on top all while being ethical.

Where Saturn sits in your chart will show you where the burden of harsh realities are felt the strongest. It will show you where you limit yourself or where others try to limit you. It will show you resistance and self-made boundaries. Saturn shows where you are hardest on yourself and others. It can cause difficulty in that area of life, but, following Saturn’s rules and putting in hard work and focused effort, also show where you will reap the most rewards. Most don’t rise to Saturn’s challenge and instead wallow in the ‘unfairness’ of life. Saturn is NOT unfair, he is just strict. He wants devotion to discipline and doesn’t allow excuses no matter how valid one may think they are. Once winning the favor of Saturn, one will win the favor of society and the hard work one does will be recognized.

Saturn spends about 2 and 1/2 years in each sign. This means that the sign your Saturn is in doesn’t affect you extremely personally, unless of course it is highly aspects. The sign can still tell of ways you work, however, especially when coupled with your house placement.

Saturn in the 1st house; Shows a strong sense of responsibility. Possibly very self-limiting and serious minded. May feel as if life is a daily struggle. Hard working. Always thinking about right and wrong. Hard on yourself and often have feelings of guilt. Feel as if there are too many demands placed on you at once.

Relieve this by taking control of your own decision making and don’t base it on whether you’ll feel guilty about it or not. You must learn to not take the weight of the world on your shoulders. Learn to relax and do things for yourself every once in awhile.

Saturn in the 2nd house; Constantly aware of their financial standing and possible low self-esteem regarding their ability to gain resources. Strong feelings towards the way our society works and feelings of being stuck in materialism. Doesn’t spend recklessly and may denounce others that do. Struggle between needing to possess and wishing to be free of the need.

Relieve this by positive reinforcement and telling yourself that you are able to support yourself. Then go out there and do it. Find something you enjoy that you can do to help finance the life you want. Realize you don’t need a lot to be happy and put more emphasis on values outside the physical realm.

Saturn in the 3rd house; Extremely self critical when it comes to communicating with others. Bounds self-expression inside in order to not be ridiculed. May find day-to-day life somewhat limiting and uncomfortable. Strong focusing powers that may leak into social area making them seem very serious. Possible difficulty learning or processing information, this can be purely mental or rooted in physical problems.

Relieve this by learning how to make mistakes and not feel traumatized by it. Put yourself out there and express yourself without rehearsing every once in awhile and don’t judge yourself so harshly when you slip up. You can do so much more when you aren’t critiquing every word you say, action you take, etc.

Saturn in the 4th house; Possible difficulties in childhood do to lack of affection or a parent that was overbearing and dominating. This person may have difficulty bringing out their nurturing side and find it awkward or non-existent (it is inside all of us). Feelings of inadequacy can lead to extremely low-self esteem and inner self being stunted and unexplored. Possible bitterness towards taking care of others.

Relieve this by reconnecting yourself with your inner nurturer. Start with yourself and allow yourself to be little again. Once you open up to your inner child it will be easier for you to see the beauty in helping others feel nurtured and loved.

Saturn in the 5th house; Seriously stunts self-expression. Feels as if expressing one’s self is unnecessary and bothersome. Spontaneity and optimism is possibly lacking. The need to work and exclude pleasure. Unable to relax or enjoy the little things in life with a laugh and a smile. Children, casual sex, and romance aren’t appealing and may be seen as a waste of time or tedious.

Relieve this by allowing humor, joy, and adoration back into your life. Don’t limit yourself. Do something silly. Don’t stifle your giggles. Go out and play. Watch a funny movie. Take a day off of work to dance, sing, paint, draw, swim, write poems, explore the woods, cuddle with a partner. Do something spontaneous.

Saturn in the 6th house; Denying self of pleasure. Strict daily routine. Living to work rather than working to live. Seeing things in black and white, feeling responsible for everything and leaving yourself no leeway. Feel in debt to others. Need to help others above yourself.

Relieve this by doing something little every day that is just for you. It can be a walk with your dog in the evenings followed by a scoop of ice cream, doing yoga in the mornings, etc. Also do something regularly a little bigger, such as going out dancing or spending time with your friends on a dinner date sharing stories over tea- whatever it is, make sure you enjoy it and are doing it for yourself. You must let go of all the responsibility you feel for everyone and everything and realize that you’re just one person and deserve to enjoy yourself while living your life. Even if it’s just the little things!

Saturn in the 7th house; Relationships may suffer. Feelings of suffocation when in relationships. Possibly attract domineering partners or are one yourself. Commitment is not taken lightly. Need time to grow bonds. Putting too many restrictions on how one relates to others, especially in romantic relationships.

Relieve this by opening your mind a little bit when it comes to relationships. There is not just one way to be in a relationship. There is not just ‘single’ or ‘married’. There are many gray areas in between and not all of them need to be so serious. Relationships should be fun! Whether they are a firm commitment or not. You can still enjoy yourself in them. Don’t let the feeling of impending doom in committed relationships linger- brush it off and use that energy toward making your partner feel loved. Find someone who is your equal rather than someone you can control or tries to control you.

Saturn in the 8th house; Extremely prone to transformations throughout lifetime. Anxiety regarding change. Sexual restriction. Exaggerated difficulty relating to death and the expectation of death. Strict on one’s view on their inner self and feels the need to put in hard work to change what is not working. Saturn in the Pluto house is rough- leaves no short cuts and the native puts a lot of pressure on themselves. Possible difficulty with money.

Relieve this by accepting change as a way of life. This means little changes as well as big changes, such as death. Release the constructs you have created around yourself in order to truly become who you are. Allow yourself to be lost in sexual union rather than limiting yourself or stressing out about it. Don’t be so harsh on yourself and know that with Saturn here, it may be hard, but transformation will always bring about a better and brighter you.

Saturn in the 9th house; Not open to new ideas. Possibly low educated or had difficulty in school. Possible travel anxiety or stress regarding traveling or broad subjects. Easily overwhelmed by new subjects or lots of information to learn. Unimpressed by philosophy and highly analytical and skeptical.

Relieve this by not dismissing new ideas too quickly. Broaden your mind. Don’t immediately get frustrated over new topics because of the excess of information, instead take small steps to learn it easier. Listen to other people’s opinions and experiences and don’t judge them or try to fit them into a category. Just take them as they are. Read some fiction! Possibly even science-fiction or fantasy to help deconstruct your strict view on reality.

Saturn in the 10th house; Feels scrutinized for life-decisions. Feels as if they’re always being judged. Need to take care of others or set them on the right path. Need to discipline and give rules to others ‘to help them’. May be seen as strict or serious-mannered by others. Sees themselves as upholding justice to the greatest degree. Possible father figure being domineering. Feeling the need to do what is expected of them.

Relieve this by letting go of the idea that you need to do what others expect you to do. Instead, look inside yourself and find what makes you happy and set out to do that. Also, resist the desire to constantly tell others how to live their lives. You may be trying to be helpful, but with Saturn in the 10th it seems domineering and restricting and can push others away. Instead use soft words and suggestions rather than rules.

Saturn in the 11th house; Friendship is taken extremely seriously and so you aren’t friends with just anyone. Possible loner. Doesn’t enjoy superficial conversation and feels disdain for those who partake in it. Difficulty making or keeping friends. Possible need to control others or have friends that want to control you. Feels responsible for friends. Doesn’t enjoy being part of a group and sees themselves as unique and mature.

Relieve this by seeing the beauty in every person you meet. Find positive characteristics in those you aren’t fond of. Let your friends make mistakes without ridiculing them or saying ‘I told you so’. Be more open to others and don’t put so much seriousness into communication and connecting with others when it doesn’t need to be. Be by yourself when you want, be with friends when you want- just don’t do something you don’t want to do because you feel responsible when you really aren’t. Take responsibility for yourself and your own actions and let others take theirs.

Saturn in the 12th house; Feelings of guilt intensified and the source may be unknown. Difficulty in life pushing native to consult other areas of relief. Possible addiction problems. Anxiety over losing hold on the emotions. Anxiety over losing one’s mind. Possible constant feeling of dread over life’s responsibilities. Possible strong devotion to spiritual matters. Loneliness and isolation. Deep sadness going unexpressed. Feeling the weight of the world.

Relieve this by getting all your secrets and difficulties out in the open. If it’s a lot, talk to a therapist or someone you trust. Express them all and then release them all. Realize that you aren’t an island. Many others have felt the things you do or did. Nothing is unfixable. Meditation is highly helpful for those with this position, as is making small adjustments to the daily routine such as daily yoga, writing, or exercise. Fear is unnecessary. Let go of it. Instead, visualize the positive things you want to manifest in your life. Don’t be afraid of your own power.

The Planet reference guide!

Sun is your personality. It’s who you are as a person. Your spirit. Your vitality. What makes you feel fulfilled on a personal level.

Your Ascendant is what others see you as, it’s a mask to the outside world, who you are in social situations. How you project yourself out to others.

Moon represents your emotions. It is your soul. The way you nurture and need to be nurtured. How you filter information internally in regards to your immediate reactions and feelings.

Venus represents how you love. It is what you find beautiful and attractive. What excites your spirit and soothes your soul. How you love and how you recognize and feel love. It is also our divine feminine energy.

Mars is the warrior planet and therefor rules dominance. It is our divine masculine energy. It rules anger and physical reactions. It is how we take action, what makes us take action, and what stirs us. What we find desiring and sexually pleasing.

Pluto is the planet of death and regeneration. It throws constant trials our way in order to teach us lessons. It is the planet of destruction in order to make room for creation. It is a highly internal, primal, and intense energy.

Jupiter is our ‘bigger picture’ of the world. It rules optimism and the future. It is expansive and all inclusive. It’s bursting with excitement, joy, and hope. It rules justice and truth.

Uranus is the trickster planet and likes to throw a wrench in our plans. It is the eccentric genius. It shows us where we differ from the crowd, where we stand independent, and where we get sparks of insight and inspiration for positive progression.

Saturn is the harsh reality- it’s every day life. It’s where we must put in time in order to see results. It’s the tangible world, the daily routine, the strict rules. It restricts. It sets boundaries. It lays down the law.

Neptune is very elusive, ruling over dreams and escapism. It has domain over drugs, fantasy, undercurrents of life, the collective unconscious. It is everything yet it is nothing. It casts a fog wherever it goes. It shows illusions and personal delusions and things that may or may not truly be there.

Chiron in the Houses

mandalas-1485096_960_720

 

Chiron is an important part of our chart when embarking on a healing journey. It is the bridge between the personal planets and the outer planets, showing us the way to healing and the transcendence of personal pain. Once moving past the personal planets, if we wish to make a journey into the spiritual world, we must first appease Chiron.

He is the gatekeeper to our deepest wounds.

Chiron guards deep wounds to prevent them from bubbling up into consciousness before you are ready to face them.

It takes a certain level of awareness in order to work with Chiron, and if one battles what’s behind the gate without being fully prepared, more wounding can occur. All is done in perfect timing, and this trust in divine timing is important to uphold. Chiron needs to be consciously worked on. Issues bubbling up from the wound will affect an individual until the wound is dealt with in a dedicated manner. Making the pilgrimage into the domain of Chiron is often long and strenuous, but it helps us see the deepest parts of ourselves and where our insecurities, traumas, and pain stem from and how they are manifested in our lives. It allows understanding, and in turn, healing. This will help you become more compassionate toward others and their pain, spreading compassion for yourself and the rest of the world. Every step you take toward self-healing is something to be celebrated. Chiron welcomes you with open arms.

Where Chiron is in your chart shows us where we will approach our deepest insecurities and pain.

It is where our deepest wound resides. The aspects that Chiron makes should only include major aspects to personal planets. This means the following aspects should be recognized:

  • Conjunction
  • Opposition
  • Trine
  • Square
  • Tight-orbed Quincunxes

Astrologers use a variety of orbs for Chiron but I often use an orb of 4 degrees. Some astrologers use up to 6 degrees (and I have seen these manifestations in charts I’ve worked with).

Chiron in the 1st House

This shows your deepest wound residing in your sense of self. You may neglect your own personality or self-interests in order to appease others. You are a fighter for those who are less fortunate and give wonderful advice to others who seek your counsel. Helping others help themselves and find their true potential is your strong point. Your weak point is doing the same for yourself. You may have trouble defining yourself and finding meaning in your life. You often neglect yourself or feel unworthy. The lesson you need to learn is self-love and self-respect. Let yourself do what you love and take your own advice as if you were giving this same advice to someone you love. Build up your personality, don’t limit yourself or feel selfish about it, you must learn to accept yourself as a unique individual with personal power in order to transcend.

Chiron in the 2nd House 

This shows your deepest wound residing in your sense of self-worth. You may have trouble seeing the worth in your own being without having something to offer. This placement usually shows disappointment in one’s self when having financial difficulties. It can give an exaggerated need for material assets. When you are well equipped materially, you will likely still not be happy until you find worth in your spirit and own being rather than what you own. You are not your possessions, your worth is not what you have to physically offer others. You can see the worth in others who aren’t well off and can be very helpful in helping them see the positive sides to themselves that exclude the material, but when it comes to yourself, you are not as kind. This placement shows a need for finding things of value inside yourself rather than outside. When you truly find your personal worth you will be able to transcend your deepest wound.

Chiron in the 3rd House

This shows your deepest wound residing in communication. This could mean constant feelings of being misunderstood or not being listened to. It can also show unintentional or intentional insults in childhood that have left you with low self-esteem and feelings of inadequacy. Some with this placement feel that they cannot express what they truly feel, either because they don’t know how to put it into words or they feel they won’t be taken seriously. Some say that difficulties with siblings can occur with this placement. You are an advocate for those who are not heard. You can easily speak up for others who are being bullied or put down, but you have trouble doing the same for yourself. The goal of Chiron here is to show you that your words are important and you are worthy of attention. You can admit your mistakes and praise your accomplishments without feeling guilty. Realizing your divine being can help you gain confidence in yourself. When you learn to speak without the need to be heard, and you learn to know that simple expression is valid and important, you will have healed your deepest wound.

Chiron in the 4th House

This shows your deepest wound residing in your family life. It can predict a difficult childhood, confinement to home, being cast out, or even having a disabled parent that was in need of your constant attention. This can manifest in many ways but the important factor is that you must learn to separate yourself from your past and not let the chains hold you down. This is a hard placement to dig into because the 4th house shows the deepest part of your soul. Chiron nestles far down and is almost invisible. Being objective in approaching the past is necessary to get anywhere with this placement. Forgiving the past is needed. Forgiving yourself and those who made you feel the way you felt is needed. You have a strong sense of empathy for others and a desire inside you to nurture those who feel displaced. You must learn how to nurture yourself the same way. Once you forgive the past, learn to allow self-nurturing, and open yourself up to world without fear of getting hurt, you can transcend the pain.

Chiron in the 5th House

This shows your deepest wound residing in your creative expression. Creative expression does not just mean art or music related endeavors but also experiencing joy from everyday things that make you happy. Quick relationships and children are ruled by this house, as well as recreational sex. You may have been held back from being able to do what you wanted to do and therefore feel restricted. You must learn that doing purely for pleasure is absolutely okay and crucial to your happiness. You do not have to be so serious all the time and can afford to relax every once in awhile. This is a placement that needs to abide by the advice ‘take time to smell the flowers.’ You can easily help others branch out and express themselves and know what they need in order to feel joy, but when it comes to you personally, you feel you can’t let yourself do that. Free yourself, express yourself, laugh and smile, and enjoy your life for the simple fact of being alive! This will bring you healing.

Chiron in the 6th House

This shows your deepest wound residing in daily needs and health. You may be preoccupied with your own health and possibly even be a hypochondriac. You worry incessantly yet don’t do much to remedy it. Routine is difficult for you and you prefer to do things of your own accord, but you can easily tell others how to organize their own lives and keep up with healthy habits. On the flip side, you may be too obsessed with keeping up with your own routine and become quite inflexible in the ways you work. You may wish you could relieve yourself of all the strict rules you place on yourself but feel you cannot risk it. This placement can show health problems early on in life, or even throughout life; this can stem from or lead to your worried state of mind. It can also lead to possible eating disorders and obsession with weight and health. The goal here is to allow yourself some freedom. It is to accept the way you are and make only necessary boundaries for yourself and leave the rest up to your whims. If you deny routine, try adding a little structure to your life here and there, and you might find yourself benefiting from it. Relaxation, essentially, is the key word. Physical wounding doesn’t need to add to emotional wounding. Free yourself from worry and RELAX.

Chiron in the 7th House

This shows your deepest wound residing in close relationships. It can physically manifest through parental divorces or the parents having a rough relationship. It can also show lack of closeness with the parents while growing up. In turn, this can lead the native toward uneasy feelings regarding relationships. You may feel unwanted or rejected by those you wish to form close partnerships with and therefore avoid them all together. With this being so, you have great insight into relationships and can easily detect problems in others’ relationships and show them how to remedy them. For yourself though, you may feel blinded or cursed. You fear being abandoned. You might often attract those who have wounds you desire to heal. It’s likely you attract or have attracted those who use you for your empathy. You need loyalty and commitment in a relationship, and confidence in those, in order to be happy. But the key to truly being happy, despite the outside factors, is to get over the fear of rejection and seek out healthy relationships rather than ones you think you can change. You can do this by learning how to be alone. You must cure this Chiron placement by kneeling to it, and in this case, that is kneeling to yourself and coming to an understanding that you are all you need.

Chiron in the 8th House

This shows your deepest wound residing in resources, deep connection, death, and sex. There are many different ways this placement can express itself. Materially, it can manifest through dependence on others or others depending on you too much. Physically, it can manifest through difficulties in feeling fulfilled sexually, yet being able to fulfill partners easily. Emotionally, it can manifest in great sorrow regarding death;  possibly having deaths in your early childhood or having those close to you die. You may be able to console those who are feeling sorrow, but are unable to console yourself. The important thing to remember is to respect yourself, accept the cycles of life, and let go. You can heal each of these wounds by being honest and upfront. You must learn to share your emotions in order to transcend them. You know transformation lurks behind disaster better than anyone. Clear the soot. Embrace the change.

Chiron in the 9th House

 This shows your deepest wound residing in expansion. This can be physically, meaning travel, or mentally, meaning philosophically. You may go through a transformation of beliefs at least once in your life and it can be very prominent and life-changing. You are a life-long learner and strong advocate of constant learning, yet you may stress yourself out in trying to do just that. You are a great teacher, but if you don’t allow your mind to expand and see other sides to things, you can be arrogant and unwavering. You put a lot of stress on yourself to follow what you currently believe, yet allow others to be flexible in their approaches and offer up multiple ways of doing things. You enjoy helping others expand, yet you are afraid to yourself. It’s important to continue to expand your mind, and you can do that through travel, study, and listening to others. To heal this wound, you must let the truth shine through rather than holding convictions that you’ve grown out of as well as DO what you feel your soul is pulling you toward. Everything is a learning experience after all.

Chiron in the 10th House

 This shows your deepest wound residing in reputation. This is an easy explanation, but not so easy in practice. You desire to be recognized and admired. You want to be seen as accomplished and respected. It may be difficult for you to find worth in yourself unless others see worth in you. You want a tangible reason behind worth. On another side, you may feel that what you do always caters to others rather than yourself. You may be scared to succeed because of the fear of failure. In any of these cases, fear is the backdrop. You want to succeed because you fear rejection. You are scared to try and succeed because you fear ridicule. You fear your current career because you’re always neglecting your own needs and the further you go the more you neglect yourself. This can all be remedied by acceptance and coming to terms with who you truly are what you want. Ask yourself who you are and what will make you happy and go after that. Don’t do things to appease other people, do them to make yourself happy, whether that is being super successful or sitting in the middle of a daisy field writing music. Heal yourself by accepting yourself. Happiness and bliss is true success.

Chiron in the 11th House

 This shows your deepest wound residing in friendship and hopes. You may often feel rejected by others and this can lead you to be quite lonely. You are unique and you know that you don’t fit in with the normal crowd, so instead, you seek out those that have similar points of view in order to not be rejected anymore. You can easily help others fit in somewhere, but you find it difficult to fit yourself in with others. It’s important to recognize that we are all divine beings, interconnected, and that we belong everywhere — not just with those who are of like mind. You may feel lonely and a little bitter because of this and reject anyone that doesn’t fit into your description of ‘friend’ because you fear the connection not working out. Learn to make connections without preconceived notions of how it’s going to go and remember that ‘everyone you meet is your guru.’ You have something to gain from everyone just as everyone has something to gain by coming into contact with you.

Chiron in the 12th House

This shows your deepest wound residing in your unconscious. Any placement in the 12th house is a very spiritual one, and those not on a spiritual path will feel 12th house energy in a ‘negative’ way because it is relentless in sending lessons until we learn them. This placement shows that you have difficulty opening yourself up to others, yet are extremely empathetic and desire to help those in need. You might encourage others to share their problems so you can help. You may be fiercely private and have psychic abilities. You may reject these abilities and deny them to much frustration. Chiron in the 12th will keep throwing circumstances your way in order to teach you lessons in acceptance and seeing the bigger picture. One may feel plagued, but the plague shall end when one simply accepts and trusts the process. Accept yourself, accept others, explore your own spirituality, find a path that suits you and walk it. Compassion is the necessity behind this house, and that means for yourself as well as for others.

 

Other parts of your natal chart-

Juno– How do you handle committed relationships? This position shows your patterns of commitment and what would truly get you to commit without fear. She rules marriage, serious relationships, and outer unions.

Ceres– What brings out your inner nurturer? Ceres rules what we deeply care about and want to protect. She is our mothering aspect, pointing us to where we crave to pour our soul into and nurture.

Pallas (Athene)- How do you approach solving problems that seem too big to handle? She rules our creative thinking in how to take steps toward achieving our goals. She is where we mentally jump into warrior mode to attack our problems head on instead of hiding from them in fear.

Chiron– Where is the deepest wound you carry? This shows where we have wounded ourselves and when faced with healing this wound, thus starts our spiritual journey. Many say this wound can not be healed, but that is defeating. This wound can most definitely be healed, it just takes a lot of self-discovery and acceptance which is why it sparks a spiritual journey.

Vesta– What is most sacred to you? Vesta rules our deepest self-commitment. She is the keeper of the fire of life and the sworn celibate priestess. She rules sacred sexuality and shows us how we express our sexuality on a spiritual level. She shows what we view as holy, and what we commit ourselves to throughout a lifetime.

Part of Fortune– What area of life will bring you the most success? This rules the area that we are most fortunate in, whether it is obvious or not. It can point to what attitudes one needs to cultivate in order to integrate harmony between your sun, moon, and ascendant, therefor releasing that beneficial energy.

The Midheaven & Imum Coeli

The Midheaven is an important part of your chart. This is also called the Medium Coeli and is represented with the letters MC. The reason it is important is because it is the very top of your chart- the highest point- taking on the symbolism of reaching your highest aspirations and goals.

Your Midheaven is where you intend to go. It is how you want to be seen, what you strive to become, and how society sees you as a whole. It’s your public persona. This is the area that gives you enjoyment, and a career that revolves around the sign, planets, and/or aspects of your Midheaven will make you feel alive. This is also your reputation- on a grander scale. Your goals are mostly centered around the energy of your Midheaven because it’s where you strive to end up and what you’re willing to put your time and effort into.

Planets that are in conjunction to your Midheaven are extremely important and will play a key role in your destiny, for the Medium Coeli rules your mark on this earth and what you leave behind. Any other major planet aspects will affect it as well, but a conjunction is the strongest indicator of influence.

The Midheaven is exactly opposite your Imum Coeli, which is the lowest point of your chart, the dark of the night. This represents where you came from, your upbringing, who you are deep inside and where you go to retreat into yourself. What makes you feel like a little kid again and brings you inner security. This is the point in the chart that is hardest to read. It’s where you keep things cooped up inside and show only a select few. Any planets in conjunction to this point will be extremely private and hard to read by others as they are the deepest part of your being. Connecting with these planets is important for the native in order to truly understand themselves.

Your Midheaven must satisfy your Imum Coeli- so even though they are in opposition, it’s important for them to learn to get along with each other. It’s the key to inner happiness and happiness in the community.

For example-

Let’s say that you have an earth Midheaven, which would give you a water Imum Coeli. This means that you are sturdy, competent, and persistent in public matters and regarding your career. You use all you’ve got in order to be seen as such. This takes a lot of your energy, and then you must retreat to your water Imum Coeli which will be very private, introverted, and enjoy spending time inside yourself recuperating. Without this alone time, or at least time spent in the company of those you’re very comfortable and close to, you cannot fully benefit from your earth Midheaven. You will be too drained for it to function. Your motivation booster is through water- emotion, calm, diving into the depths, being by yourself.

If your Midheaven is in air and your Imum Coeli is in fire then the energy works quite differently. You need to be able to run around, express yourself, get out all that excess energy in order to communicate and in order for your mind to function properly. You may be very gifted with people and highly charming in public situations, but if you don’t find a way to get your ‘ya-ya’s’ out so to speak, your mind will blank and you’ll be on edge and jittery, unable to function properly. It works both ways with each element.

Those that were born with their planet of love, Venus, in the 8th house are intense and all-encompassing. They contain the essence of Scorpio in the way that they love, and what they find attractive. When they love, it is a penetrating type of love. They crave the key to their lovers mind, heart, and soul, and will accept nothing less. Preferring a more mysterious partner, these natives tend to go after the dark types, possibly even those with an aura of danger or those that ooze sex appeal. In fact, these natives ooze sex appeal themselves. Others see them as the temptress, almost irresistible, and highly seductive. Those with their Venus in the 8th house have an air about them that promises a deep connection and mind blowing pleasures. With those that they love, they expect full commitment and loyalty. This goes with lovers, close friends, and even business partners. They don’t trust easily or give their heart up easily. They aren’t easily swayed and can be stubborn in their affairs. These natives are skilled at connecting with others and gain their trust by be so accepting of the dark side. They are interested in secrets, and though they won’t share their own willingly, they adore getting them out of others. Conversing with these individuals is rarely ever light. They don’t much enjoy small talk and prefer to get down to the depths of the soul. Venus in the 8th house can be slightly manipulative, especially with those they feel they are losing their power with. Power is important to them, emotional control is important to them, whether it’s conscious or unconscious. When they feel their partner slipping from their fingers they can feel a strong, contained rage. They can be highly vindictive when losing a lover. When having a lover, they get jealous easily. All this comes from their deep emotions, and whether they want to feel it or not, they do. They crave giving their own mind, body, and soul to a lover but rarely find one that they can trust that much to give all three. Letting go of past hurts, and letting go of things that need not be magnified, and trusting despite what consequences might come, are all lessons of the 8th house.

These natives are also attracted to those in positions of power. They find ambition and drive very attractive in the opposite sex (or same sex, depending on their preference) and gravitate to those who are wealthy, powerful, and successful. They may have a lot of role models that they look up to, or denounce role models in favor of making themselves the one to be looked up to, but in any case, they want to be recognized for their efforts. Though not always true, these natives tend to be respectful of society and the structures with which they are surrounded with. They tend to be more conservative in the way they they love and don’t enjoy excess of emotion.
