Ethereal, Domicile Lords of the Places and Topics


I'll now move on to take a loot at the topic areas selected by Ethereal.


Income and Career

Income and resources are second place affairs, though they might also be related to the eighth house through inheritances. The eighth covers 'other people's money and it's association with death, makes it an ideal house to look at inheritance.

Your second place is ruled by Mars, which is not a good start, as it's the out of sect malefic. To add to the problems, Saturn is placed here. Again don't take that as being disastrous but it does mean there will be difficulties in this area.

Mars is in the sixth place, so it may be that your income is in someway affected by your health, or is related to health and health care That area is the most likely but it's not the only one. The sixth place also covers pets and small animals (which would mean that a possibility would be earning money from animal care) and the sixth being a Decline, would link income to travel and foreign places or foreigners.

Saturn also rules the fourth house of father and family, so some income may come from your father and from family or real estate. As Saturn is a natural significator of the father, along with the Sun, I think the fourth house link is most likely to be your father.

Saturn also rules the fifth of children and good fortune. So you might receive income from an (adult) offspring. Of course not all of these would occur at the same time or even necessarily as a one off. But these areas tend to be your most likely sources of income.

Venus rules the eighth of inheritance or other people's money. This would include alimony or other payments from divorce and the aforementioned inheritance. As previously noted Venus is squared by Mars, so this might be an area where there are issues on occasion.

Career is usually attributed to the tenth place, which is concerned with a person's actions. Your tenth place is Cancer, ruled by the Moon. The Moon has natural significations of the mother and indeed womankind in general. So you might have a career that is related in someway to the needs of mothers or women. The Moon also has natural signifcation for travellers and water. So careers relating to travel or the sea or fishing would also have meaning here.

The only common link to income is 'travel' so that would seem to be a good fit, though I'd be most surprised if that actually was your career. The Moon is placed in the twelfth place. Again, that is not a good placement. Your career may be in some way hidden - you work behind the scenes - or related to institutions and hospitals (a more modern meaning), or again travel and also loss.

So the Moon's placement does seem to suggest travel, yet again. So you might well have to travel possibly a long way, in order to pursue your career. The twelfth is also the place of Loss, so it might be that you lose your job or find it difficult to keep your career going.

The tenth is occupied by the Sun and Mercury. The Sun rules the eleventh house of friends, sponsorship or patronage and in later Astrology groups and social movements. Mercury rules the twelfth place of enemies, loss, travel and the hidden. Mercury also rules the ninth place of travel, philosophy beliefs etc. These two add a wider dimension to what I've already said. In some ways your tenth offers the widest range of opportunities in your life and that is good. The ninth and twelfth rulers of course stimulate that theme of travel, which is already established.

Just as a refer back to the previous post. Mercury rules your Lot of Spirit which is related to your actions and ability to influence what goes on around you. It too lies in that twelfth house.

Romance and Marriage

This is ruled by the seventh place, which is Aries and thus is ruled by Mars. Mars, is in the sixth so we have a connection of marriage to health. That might mean the health of your partner rather than yourself but of course it could mean that in some way your health is affected by marriage. Your Mars is in a mutually applying square with Venus the Ascendant ruler. As I've said before there is something of a mutual reception, as Mars is in the exaltation of Venus and Venus is in the terms of Mars. There is attraction. But the square suggests that there will also be problems, an initial attraction may become more of a difficult relationship. Mars is linked with severance, so there's a possibility that a relationship will break down, either is going your own ways or in divorce.

Now that should not be read with a modern approach in mind. A difficulty with one relationship does not necessarily mean that you will always have difficulty with relationships, as Modern Astrology might seem to point to. Hellenistic Astrology would simply say that at least one relationship might well end up in break down or in a relationship which becomes one of tension rather than one of companionship.

Health

The main indicators here are the sixth place, the Moon and the Lot of Fortune.

It's important to stress at the outset that illness is not a necessary condition of life. We have illnesses from time to time but they can be mild or one off conditions. So just because I mention possible vulnerable areas does not mean that these are going to be problems either continually or at all. The are possibilities. Some may be more likely in childhood, other may be more likely in old age. In my own case, I couldn't see any of the possibilities Astrology suggested until I reached my mid 60's. Now I am aware of at least two manifestations. Not serious but definitely chronic.

The sixth is ruled by Jupiter the benefic of sect, but Jupiter is itself in the twelfth and in a loose opposition to Mars, placed in the sixth. Jupiter's placement suggests that any illness is likely to be hidden for some time before it shows up. Jupiter rules the liver but also is associated with diseases relating to the lungs, palpitations, heart murmurs, tonsillitis and diseases brought on by over indulgence. As Mars is also the planet of surgery, I would not rule out surgery at some point, though as I suggested above the surgery here could do with Mars' rulership of the seventh place, rather than because of illness.

Perhaps less difficult, the Twelfth relates to the Feet, as does Pisces, which is your sixth place. So you might have problems relating to your feet. In my case my sixth is Capricorn and this has signification for the knees and I do have knee issues now.

I've looked at the general ideas suggested by your chart but what I haven't done here is to look at events associated with those areas. I can do that in the next couple of posts. Just let me know which ones (or indeed all) that you would want me to look at.
