So anyways, how did you go with last weeks mini lesson? Do you have anything in angular houses? Take note of these- these are your go-to planets when you want to make things happen.
If angular houses are associated with initiation, the houses beside them- anticlockwise as we go around the chart- are associated with resources. More specifically the resources associated with the house that came before. It’s not just the resources you need, but how you consolidate them, control them, administer them, and organise them and, even, enjoy them.
We call these houses succedent houses.
Being houses of consolidation, security and survival, they are associated with fixed signs, ie Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius…more on this in a couple of weeks.
It all makes perfect common sense when you think about it:
The 1st house is all about self…we learnt that last week. If the 1st is about self, the 2nd house is about what you need to survive, to develop yourself further, and to feel secure…and your attitude to these resources. It’s the money you earn, how you earn it, what you do with it, how you accumulate it, and your attitude to both it and the things you spend it on. It’s your self-esteem, the things you find value and beauty in. It’s also how you replenish your resources- both material, and energetic. Questions such as how much is enough come up in regard to 2nd house issues.
The 4th house is about home, family, your history, your roots, your emotional security and safe place. The 5th house is what you bring to the home, your creativity, the family you create, your needs regarding self-expression, the very necessary play-time…and your attitude to these things. It’s also your attitude to how you risk that inner emotional security. As an aside, sex is also associated with the 5th- it’s to do with risk, fun and play. Is there any more interesting way of risking your emotional security? (Insert winky emoticon).
The 7th house is about relationship and other people, the 8th house becomes about the resources of the relationship, what the relationship needs to survive…and, through sex, the fruits or rewards of the partnership (insert another winky emoticon here). It’s also about other people’s resources- debts, inheritances. It’s also how we protect and grow these resources through insurances, investments etc. Again questions of abundance come up, but they’re more in relation to what the partnership needs to feel secure.
The 10th house is about you in the public world, at work, under the spotlight. In the 11th house you take this further, you form groups, you envision dreams and consolidate goals- and your attitude to all that. You continue with what was started in the 10th and enjoy the rewards of your 10th house efforts. You meet the people who can help you with your ambition. You also meet those with whom you share a social connection- something that is also necessary for survival. The 11th house is also promotions, recognition and bonuses that come from your employer. Why? If your employer is the 10th house, their resources are the 11th house.
Do It Yourself
Do you have any planets in angular houses? Don’t worry too much about what the planets mean, but just take note of them at this stage.
Next week: we complete our trip through the houses…
