Hi Minderwiz.

Sorry this has been on the back burner so long. Lots of uncertainty here. The apartment complex where we are living was sold. The previous owner passed away. We may have to relocate shortly but haven't found a place yet.

I also rebuilt the engine in my second vehicle. That took a lot more time than I wanted but is mostly done except for final tuning of the carburetors.

Obviously we have been experiencing some 3rd and 4th house issues. Let me go through your questions and see what I can do.

Nothing detailed but maybe key dates that you think were relevant.

First, "career" may be a stretch of the language. Second, I don't have any actual dates. With those 2 items stated I can only give an outline.


I think my first "job" started in 1976. I began working for a veterinarian. My hope was to become a veterinarian myself. I had done odd jobs before that mowing yards for elderly people. I was at the vet for 3 or 4 years.


From there I was started doing freelance yard work and home repairs for various clients. I also, at times, worked with my father who did home repairs also. After a couple of years I took another part-time position at a mortuary. My job was to answer phones from 5 to 9 pm and show people to viewings. I was only at that job for about a year.


From that point until 2005 I mostly did home repairs with an occasional foray into something else. I tried selling insurance and securities somewhere in there. I had what I would call a more centered business doing home repairs from 1989 to 2000.


In Oct 2005 I took a job as a service technician for a water treatment company. The 2 main items we serviced and installed were water softeners and RO units. I was at that job a bit over a year. I did more plumbing in the freelance work after that point.


I wish I could provide more accurate date details but I don't really have those available right now.

It's in the last degree of Cancer, it's Fall and in the sixth, directly opposite and in partile opposition to Saturn, your Ascendant ruler. That seems to suggest that there's conflict between you and career (or more probably between you and employment in an organisation). Is that a reasonable conclusion?
***
That may be a reasonable conclusion. I have had 3 jobs that were in someone else's business. My current thinking is that if I chose a corporation as an employer then I would be consciously appointing the organization as the Saturn in that opposition. I may try that soon as I have had many Saturnian clents and I am not too keen on more clients like that.

Now I know that you have siblings because they featured in previous posts. I just wondered how important they were in your life (now and as a child) because this placement would suggest that they are indeed important to your sense of family.

As a child they were more important. Growing up my brothers and I did a lot together. As we grew up we went our separate ways. Now I do not have much contact with them at all.


My wife is my current family.

That meaning of the third is still held today, as Modern Astrology would see it as being associated with short journeys. The Long/short didn't really feature in Hellenistic times, all cadent houses were the same in this regard. Where they differed is that the ninth was more promising of good things than the others, after the ninth came the third and the sixth and twelfth were more travel that led to bad things. So the third house may be relevant here. I just need some information that will help separate the siblings from the travel or perhaps show that both areas are important.

Travel became important when I got together with my wife. We have traveled a lot compared to my earlier life. We have gone to Mexico, Thailand and crossed the USA multiple times in a VW van. That's the engine I just rebuilt. When traveling the USA we always took our time and used small roads. Our traveling days are somewhat behind us but you never know.

Wealth in terms of fixed assets, such as land and buildings, is also fourth. Wealth in the form of income and movable assets is second house and that's ruled by Jupiter in your chart. Jupiter is in your first house and in it's own triplicity (Jupiter rules the Air signs by night). So wealth and possessions are going to be particularly relevant to you. That doesn't have to be a desire to have as much wealth as possible but it may signify a need to have financial security, especially if that was missing in childhood or there were periods when financial security was absent.

Again that's an area that might be worth exploring.

Definitely would like to explore this area if possible. There was no security growing up and it has been sporadic since then. I would like to know if there is any security in the near future.


Hope all is going well on your side of the pond.
