A client said that she should have light conversations. I was mulling over her words when it struck me that she has a Mercury conjunct Saturn natally. That explains it! I have associated Mercury-Pluto or Pluto in the 3rd house as “heavy, intense” conversations. It has never occurred to me that Mercury-Saturn can refer to a tendency for heavy conversations too! Or maybe not heavy per se, but serious stuff.


Progressed MC Ruler Changing Sign

A short note: Mary’s natal MC is in Taurus which makes Venus her MC ruler. Progressed Venus recently changed sign from Aries to Taurus. Using a 1 degree orb, she did feel that her career was more stabilized and predictable. Before the switch in sign, she was working on a freelance basis on her own which kind of fits into MC ruler in Aries sign.

Predicting Physical Appearance

I received a text with a burning question. A-ha! I can use horary for that. I will be meeting the client some days later but am curious as to how she looks like. The Ascendant is in Leo. She’s well-built, tallish and a thick mop of hair. North node is in the 1st. So that expands the physical description in the previous sentence. The chart ruler is the Sun in Aquarius which conjuncts the south node tightly. Oh, she’s not well-built, tallish and having a massive mop of hair then. Just somewhat like that, especially since south node restricts and decreases. Read More »

Not Another Delay Again!

Saturn delays. He makes us wait. With Saturn, it’s like running a marathon rather than a sprint. So, when a person asks about finding someone to form a family and there’s Saturn involved, it’s unlikely that the person finds someone to settle down at a young age. For example, Carter is single and is feeling the urge to have a family. His 4th house ruler conjuncts Saturn. He might feel frustrated or restricted in his attempts (to have a family). Perhaps as a result of those inner tensions, forming a family does happen later in life for him when compared to his peers. Certainly, Saturn conjunct IC ruler could manifest in a variety of other ways. For example, being cautious, realistic or even having a fear about forming a family. Read More »

7th House

Based on my limited knowledge of traditional astrology, the 7th house represents the other person, our partner, romantic or business and a host of other matters. So if there’s a Mercury in your natal 7th, it could suggest that Mercurial themes such as communication, student, transport is associated with your partner.

After numerous consultations with clients over time, it seems that the 7th representing the partner is not encompassing enough. I have found repeatedly that a person with say Mercury in the 7th could mean that the person thinks or talks about relationships all the time or with a therapist. Open enemies a.k.a. people who openly object to him/her could do so with words, contracts, speed, etc. If the 7th is taken to represent our partner instead of say open enemies,  the 7th could represent anything about our partner – our relationship needs, how we experience our partner, the physical appearance and personality of our partner, etc.


Chart Ruler in 5th

A client had his chart ruler, Saturn, in the 5th. He’s a teacher for young kids. He’s big time into partying and into sex. Oh, his Moon is on the cusp of the 5th house too, which certainly emphasizes 5th house themes. He’s certainly very expressive based on the words used by him – for example, I’m HORNY!!!!! (yes, he used five exclamations and spelt the word in caps).

I find it incredible that astrology can be so explicit. LOL
