Jupiter Transits the 6th House

You can find descriptions of Jupiter transiting all the houses on my new and improved site, http://astrolady.wix.com/astrolady

 

Jupiter is the planet of expansion, luck, and optimism.

The 6th house is the house of health, work environment, dental hygiene, and daily routines. The 6th house is naturally ruled by Virgo.

What you can expect when Jupiter is transiting your 6th house:

  • Increased preoccupation with your health: on the positive side, this transit can make you adopt healthier eating/exercise routines. This can also manifest in an increase in physical energy. This a a great time to stop smoking or starting that new exercise regimen. On the negative side, this transit can also increase hypochondriac tendencies. In other words, Jupiter can increase worry about your health, or increase your attention on existing health issues. If you have a planet in the sixth house, new health issues may surface. For example, Jupiter transiting conjunct your 6th house Uranus may increase anxiety and nervous energy. The body may feel more sensitive during this transit, as awareness of your health increases.
  • Meeting new doctors/healers, and exploring alternative health treatments: new contacts with different doctors, healers, chiropractors, etc.. may take place during this time. You might explore alternative medical treatments to improve your health or to treat existing medical conditions.
  • Discovering health issues you never knew existed: You might discover the root of any health conditions you have been suffering from.
  • increased preoccupation with dental hygiene: the 6th house rules dental hygiene, so you might find yourself more preoccupied with your teeth under this influence

There is no doubt that break-ups are difficult, and happen for a variety of reasons. Through astrology, it is easy to determine when a break-up may occur by observing transits to one’s natal chart.

Here are a few transits which often bring separations/break-ups:

Saturn conjunct/square/opposite natal Venus: Saturn, the planet of restriction, depression, pessimism, and separation, in contact with Venus, the planet of love, beauty, harmony, and one-on-one relationships often results in separations and break-ups. I recently had this transit by square aspect, and Saturn “hit” my natal Venus three times (direct, retrograde, direct). As with most transits, I found the retrograde hit the most intense.

Saturn on any planet leads to increased depression and disconnect from what the natal planet represents. With Venus, we feel less attractive and sociable, and feel a disconnect from those closest to us. Saturn on Venus compels us to take a long, hard look at our relationships and suss out what is working for us, and what is not. Because Saturn represents pessimism, the way we once looked at our lovely relationships changes. The little (or big) things we once ignored or withstood become unbearable, and our only alternative is to withdraw to re-evaluate the direction of the relationship.

Personally, I went through a major break up during my Saturn square Venus transit. After four years of ignoring problems and “letting things slide”, this transit forced me to re-evaluate my feelings towards my mate and, more importantly, myself. It became apparent that the relationship was not serving me well, and I had no choice but to let go. As much as it hurt, and as much as I knew he did not want to break up, I simply could not continue in a relationship I felt did not reflect who I was as a person. Saturn over my Venus also stomped over my self-esteem, so I spent a lot of time alone during this time. Socially, I felt incredibly disconnected from my closest friends. I felt as though I had “outgrown” them, which added to my feelings of loneliness and isolation.

One thing to remember about Saturn transits (well, ALL transits) is that these feelings are temporary. Once I was out of the transit, I came out of isolation and gradually let people back in to my life. I know now that these people are the ones who mean the most to me. Saturn often causes separations, yes, but true friends and strong relationships will survive, and reintroduced once the transit is over.

Uranus transiting in aspect to Venus/ruler of the 5th or 7th house/Descendant: Uranus, the planet of rebellion, freedom from restrictions, unpredictability, separation in aspect to Venus can cause separations in relationships. Under this influence, we are no longer satisfied with the everyday, hum-drum aspects of “normal” relationships, and seek new experiences and excitement in love. Relationships become “boring”, and all we want to do is have fun. Uranus on Venus changes our “tastes”; we often find ourselves attracted to people we never thought we’d be attracted to before the transit began. Uranus on Venus is why a woman ends a 20-year marriage on a whim, and runs off with a man 15 years younger than her. I’ve found that people often believe that they’ve encountered their soulmate under this influence.

Ever hear of the law of attraction? Uranus *temporarily* changes our attitudes on love and freedom, so we naturally attract like-minded people. Relationships begun at this time generally do not last. Once the feelings of excitement wear off, we are often no longer interested in that relationship and move on. On the other hand, it might be the other person who leaves us once the relationships becomes “normal” (since the person we attract is usually Uranian).

We also find ourselves with a new group of friends, and make changes to our appearance. We dress differently, change our hairstyle, etc..

The aspect between Uranus and the natal planet describes the nature of the transit. Hard aspects (conjunction, square, oppostion) are the most difficult, and often end in separations and/or infidelity. The square and opposition, in particular, often bring “what was I thinking?” relationships; the people we partner with under this influence are generally exciting, but the long-term potential is lacking due to the fact that the person really isn’t our “type”, or suitable for a long-term relationship. I’ve noticed the trine and sextile bring more positive relationships into our lives. I’ve seen infidelity and separations occur under this influence, and the “other person” is generally not as unsuitable as they would be under a hard aspect.

Personal examples: When Uranus was squaring my 7th house ruler, I met an Aquarius male, with whom I had a short, but intense romance. In true Uranian fashion, the relationship was unstable, unpredictable, and exciting. He was going a Uranus conjunct Venus transit at the time of our meeting. We fell for each other quickly, and he pronounced his “love” for me immediately, as well as the fact that he thought I was his “soulmate”. While I did not share this sentiment entirely (I am heavily Capricornian, thus very realistic), I was swept away nonetheless. During the time we spent together, there were numerous separations and reunions, and the relationship never quite got off the ground. In the end, I left him. Looking back on the relationship, I cannot imagine what I was thinking. He was not my type at all, and I even knew this during the transit. I was searching for excitement at the time, and this is what the relationship gave me.

Mercury through the Signs and Houses

You can find this article on my new and improved site, http://astrolady.wix.com/astrolady

Mercury is the natural ruler of the 3rd house, and is ruled by the signs Gemini and Virgo. Mercury represents our communication style and our mental processes. In water, Mercury is subjective and driven by emotions.

Mercury in Aries/1st house: is sharp-witted, straight-forward, and to the point in their thinking and communication. Mercury in Aries individuals are argumentative by nature, and often become impatient when faced with opposition. These individuals are known for jumping to conclusions prematurely because of their impatience.

Mercury in Taurus/2nd house: individuals are patient and practical. They base decisions on the practical, material, and on common sense. These individuals are sometimes considered “slow”, in direct contrast with Mercury in Aries. Individuals with this placement are stubborn, and it is next to impossible to change their minds once their minds are made up.

Mercury in Gemini/3rd house: Mercury is “at home” in Mercury. Individuals with this placement are very logical and quick-thinking. These individuals certainly have the “gift of the gab”, and can be difficult to shut up once they get going. This aspect also lends itself to mental boredom when hovering over one subject for too long. As a result, Mercury in Gemini natives often know “a lot about everything, but very little about individual subjects”.

Mercury in Cancer/4th house: People with this placement have subjective through processes based on feelings and emotions, rather than logic. These individuals have fine memories, and have a strong appreciation for history, given that Cancer is a sign that represents the “past”.

Mercury in Leo/5th house: Individuals with this placement are often opinionated, fixed and stubborn when it comes to mental activities. Mercury in Leo natives may also be authoritarian in their speech, and make wonderful leaders. They tend to look at the “big picture”, and often disregard important details.

Mercury in Virgo/6th house: This placement produces a logical, critical mind. Mercury in Virgo natives are incredibly detail-oriented and have excellent analytical skills. Instead of spreading themselves thin with numerous mental pursuits, the prefer to stick to one subject and explore it deeply. Grammar and spelling are perfect, and they are quick to catch on to things. Indeed, they make excellent students.

Mercury in Libra/7th house: This placement denotes the individual is fair, rational, and non-confrontational. Mercury in Libra natives are diplomatic and polished in their expression, and getting along with others is important to them. This placement is also known for its indecisiveness, as Mercury in Libra has the uncanny ability to see both sides to every issue.

Mercury in Scorpio/8th house: This placement indicates the native is secretive, suspicious, and penetrating. Individuals with this placement are intuitive and private, and are skilled at both extracting and keeping secrets. Mercury in Scorpio natives can be quick sharp-tongued. Like other Watery Mercuries, the thought process is generally subjective.

Mercury in Sagittarius/9th house: This placement indicates a mind that is independent, curious, and direct. Mercury in Sagittarius natives are very opinionated; in fact, they will often give you their opinion without being asked. These individuals are wonderful storytellers, as well. They tend to look at the “big pictures” and ignore minor details. They are interested in subjects like travel, philosophy, and religion. Mercury in Sagittarius individuals also have a keen interest in higher education.

Mercury in Capricorn/10th house: Produces a methodical, objective, clear mind. The thought process is linear, and words are carefully thought-out before verbally expressed. Individuals with this placement have excellent memories, and can be quite skeptical. Mercury in Capricorn individuals have the ability to concentrate deeply on a subject, and have a down-to-earth approach to their communication. In fact, Mercury in Capricorn natives can be quite quiet. They may lack confidence in their verbal expression, and are naturally pessimistic.

Mercury in Aquarius/11th house: Produces a rational, scientific, progressive mind. Individuals with this placement love to shock people with their controversial, eccentric, revolutionary ideas. Their ideas often seem “ahead of the times”. This position of Mercury favors equality and acceptance of diversity.

Mercury in Pisces/12th house: ​​​​​​​​​​With this placement, you may be self-conscious about starting sentences with “I”. I think this placement would actually make you less self-absorbed because Mercury in Pisces has a knack for knowing what other people are thinking and feeling. Perhaps being aware of other people’s thoughts makes you feel self-conscious about saying “I” too much. Plus, Pisces represents the collective unconscious; Pisces has NO ego or boundaries, so the line between “I” and “we” are often blurred. Having Mercury in Pisces may denote psychic abilities, given the sensitivity and intuition that comes along with this placement. These people are amazing at “reading between the lines” and seeing the subtleties that lie beneath people’s words/body language. I also find Mercury in Pisces natives to be excellent listeners, and make incredible counselors and therapists. You’ll often find a Mercury in Pisces daydreaming.

At worst, Mercury in Pisces can lead to lying (not with malicious intent, but often to spare the other person’s feelings), and an inability to stay “on subject” (their minds often wander). Mercury in Pisces people often go off on tangents in conversation, which can be difficult to “keep up with” for people with more linear thought processes.

Natal Chiron in the 6th house

In my natal chart, Chiron is situated in my sixth house of health, routines, diet, and work. I’ve been trying to find more information on this placement, but I haven’t been successful. Hopefully my experience with this placement will help other 6th-house Chiron people to understand this placement a bit better. Some celebrities with this placement include Jessica Biel, Ewan McGregor, Jennifer Lopez, and Carol Carpenter.

The house in which Chiron is situated often represents the area in which we have recurring problems, beginning in childhood. It can show what we’re compulsive about. It also shows the area that we’re able to teach other people about, despite having a lack of success in that area, ourselves.

Here are some ways Chiron in the 6th can manifest:

1. Eating Disorders: I’ve found this to be very common among people with Chiron in the 6th. We often have a preoccupation with eating habits with this placement. Personally, my relationship with food has never been “normal”. When I was young, I ate too much and was too overweight. Now, I eat too little and I’m too thin.  Carol Carpenter passed away because of her eating disorder, and Jennifer Aniston has reported having an eating disorder.

2. Childhood illnesses: Many people with Chiron in the 6th were born with illnesses, often hereditary, which will reoccur throughout their lives.  Look for these themes to pop up when Chiron is contacted by transit.

3. Ability to teach others about health: Despite my eating disorders, I know everything about food and nutrition, and I even thought about becoming a nutritionist. It is common for 6th house Chiron natives to have the ability to teach others better eating habits, even though they don’t apply these habits to their own lives.

4. Workaholism: This placement often leads to compulsive work habits.

5. Hypochondria: Again, this ties into a preoccupation with health. People with this placement always feel like there is something “wrong” with them, even if this is not the case. Feeling satisfied with the state of one’s health is difficult with this placement because the native will always find something to worry about when it comes to health.  Personally, I always think the worst, and sometimes even hold off on my doctor appointments out of fear of what they will find.

Uranus square Pluto- Revolution meets Regeneration

Uranus is the planet of revolution, unpredictability, and instability. Uranus is the natural ruler of the 11th house and the sign Aquarius. In transit, Uranus often results in sudden upsets, unwelcome changes, and sudden insights.

Pluto is the planet of regeneration, death, rebirth, transformation, obsession, and intensity. Pluto is the natural ruler of the 8th house and the sign Scorpio. In transit, Pluto often results in deep exploration, obsession, the discovery of one’s power, complex involvements, and facing our fears.

Transiting Uranus is now situated in the sign of Aries, while Pluto is in the sign of Capricorn. Both signs are Cardinal; they are the signs which initiate change.

When these two planets collide, significant beginnings and fated endings are in store. Uranus jolts us awake, while Pluto compels us to transform our lives.

The best way to handle any Uranus or Pluto transit is to take the changes as they come, and keep aware that changes are inevitable. Those who cling to the tried and true, and operate on fear of change will have the hardest time with this transit.

How will the Uranus-Pluto square affect you?

1. Consider the houses these planets are transiting. For example, this week, my father had a fainting incident in a public place, and ended up hitting his head, which resulted in several hospital visits. Uranus made an exact square to Pluto on the 19th of September, and my father had his accident just the day before. In my own chart, Uranus is transiting the 4th house, and Pluto is transiting my 1st house. Uranus brought an unexpected, sudden event concerning my family (4th house). A transformation of my self-image (1st house), brought on my Pluto transiting the 1st, also took place; my priorities shifted and I was forced to become more responsible and strong to support my family.

2. Consider the aspects these planets are making to your natal planets (if any). To continue with my earlier example, my father’s natal Neptune received an exact square from Pluto and an exact opposition from transiting Neptune the day of his accident. Neptune rules my father’s 3rd house, which rules cognitive function and the “mind”. As a result of my father hitting his head, he experienced an intense episode of vertigo, along with depression and anxiety.

3. Consider the aspects these planets are making to your progressed planets (if any). My sister’s progressed Venus is at 8 degrees Capricorn, which was affected by the Uranus-Pluto square; Pluto was conjunct her natal Venus, and Uranus was square her natal Venus at the time of my father’s accident. In her progressed chart, Venus rules my sister’s 4th house (home, family).

Uranus transiting the 7th house

You can find this article on my new and improved site, http://astrolady.wix.com/astrolady

Unpredictable, unstable relationships are in order when Uranus is in the 7th, because the people you attract are usually unpredictable and unstable (i.e. Uranian). I find that the guys I meet are usually going through some sort of Uranus transit when they meet me, since Uranus is so strong in my chart.  One man was was having transiting Uranus sextile his natal Venus, and another had transiting Uranus conjunct his natal Venus at the time of our meetings. I was going through a Uranus sextile Venus transit when I met an Aquarian man, and Uranus square my seventh house ruler when I met yet another Aquarian man.
The nature of the planet affecting the love sector reflects the kind of relationship/partner you’ll have during that time. The person doesn’t necessarily have to be a Scorpio (for a Pluto transit), an Aquarius (for an Uranus transit), etc., but the synastry chart or composite chart will usually have the flavor of that planet, or the other person will be going through a similar transit.

Uranus crossing the DC (cusp of the 7th house) usually manifests by meeting someone new, out of the blue, or suddenly breaking up with your partner/your partner suddenly leaving you. Either way, there’s usually a sudden change in your relationship status. People are in and out of your life during this transit, and it’s really hard to find stability in relationships for as long as Uranus is transiting that house. Uranian relationships are often “out of the norm”; you partner with people you wouldn’t have considered before the transit began. Uranian relationships can include long-distance arrangements, too; anything non-traditional, really.

How the person handles this transit depends on the nature of the person. Individuals with heavy water or earth influences would have a more difficult time with a transit like this, as security, stability, and co-dependency are the kinds of relationships they usually seek. Fire and Air signs are generally more free-spirited and non-committal, which would make Uranus transits much easier on them. A friend of mine had a very hard time with this transit, as she is a Taurus Venus. She would meet a man (out of the blue- in true Uranus fashion), fall really hard for him, then they’d break up because he could not commit. She’d be devastated, but then she’d meet someone new in a flash, and the same thing would happen all over again.  And my friend with Venus conjunct Uranus in her natal chart? She had the time of her life.

Astrology of the “Other Woman”

Is he/she really in love with you? IF you are caught up in a love triangle, and do not know what to do, e-mail me at astroladyconsultations@gmail.com! I have helped many people in love triangles (including myself!). I will help you explore the dynamics of your relationship to see what the future holds for you! Order a report today!

A friend of mine recently inquired about how and why people often get entangled in love triangles.

I’ll give you a few examples of “other woman” scenarios to help you understand why this happens..

1) Hard Pisces and Neptunian influences in the love sector make you very self-sacrificial, compassionate, impressionable, and delusional when it comes to relationships.

A woman I recently did a reading for had a chart full of Neptune, most notably: Venus in Pisces.  She was involved with a man who claimed to love her, but was living with his long-term girlfriend, with whom he had a couple of children. This man would complain to my client constantly about how his girlfriend beat him up, treated him badly, etc.. He told my client he couldn’t leave girlfriend because he relied on his girlfriend financially. My client, being a Neptunian, bought into this and began a sexual/emotional relationship with him. She said she wanted to “help” him, and did so by staying with him and offering him unconditional love and support while he was “suffering” at the hands of his abusive girlfriend. In doing so, she sacrificed her own needs in order to make him happy. She said, “I know he truly loves ME, but he’s just with her for financial reasons, and since I love him so much, I’m going to stay with him.”

Piscean/Neptunian people like to “save” people, and this is often done through self-sacrifice. When you’re completely blinded by love for someone, it’s difficult to let go, especially when that Neptunian cloud is blurring your vision. You make excuses for the person, doing anything to keep the “dream” alive in order to avoid facing the truth.  You can’t reason with a Venus-Neptune/Piscean person when it comes to this stuff because they’re so convinced everything is okay.

Rielle Hunter (mistress of John Edwards) has Venus opposite Neptune. Katharine Hepburn (mistress of Spencer Tracy) has Venus square Neptune. I think this is the most common aspect among mistresses.

2) I’ve noticed Venus square Pluto people often get entangled in love triangles. I find that this is common among people who have affairs on their partners, as well as people who end up being the “other woman/man”. This aspect is known for fatalistic tendencies in love. Venus-Pluto people are known for getting into addictive relationships, even if they’re toxic, because unavailable people are so attractive to them. Even in a painful situation, it’s still hard for Venus-Pluto people to let go because the feelings are so intense. Also, women with this aspect are irresistible to men, complicating matters even further. Natives with this aspect must be careful to not fall into sexually/financially exploitative relationships.

3) Heavy 12th house Especially with Venus in there. This is similar to the Neptune/Piscean influence I mentioned before. The 12th house is all about secrets, and having Venus in here would point to a fondness for secret affairs. It turns them on. It’s the kind of relationship which makes them feel most comfortable. Like Neptune/Pisces people, they love the unattainable and tend to fantasize about/idealize their lovers, and might not see their relationships clearly.

4) Heavily Saturnian people. Especially with hard aspects, the person might feel unworthy of love, and has a general distrust for the opposite sex. He/she expects people to cheat, lie, deceive, so these relationships become “normal” to them. If you think every guy is a cheater, it’s easy to end up being with a cheater!

5) Heavily Uranian people. Too independent, commitment-phobic, and restless to have a “regular” relationship. The people who offer them “real” relationships scare them off. What turns a Uranian person on is often someone he/she cannot have, hence the attraction to an unavailable man. Also, the attraction stems from the fact that they, themselves, are incapable of having a committed relationship, so they pick people who have no time for them (i.e. people who are already in relationships).

Synastry aspects and transits can bring these types of relationships into your life, too (i.e. Pluto or Neptune squaring your Venus, or someone’s Neptune/Pluto squaring your Venus).
