How to Find Significators

Astrological SignificatorsThis lesson from the the Horary Astrology Correspondence Course, describes how to identify the correct astrological significator.
A significator is the planet which represents the subject of an astrological question or inquiry.
The houses of the horoscope describe every aspect of human existence and they are ruled by  astrological significators.
In horary astrology and most matters in natal astrology identifying the significator and assessing its condition is of utmost importance.

All successful astrological interpretation is based upon the ability to correctly identity the significator of the subject of inquiry.

To correctly identify the significator is is essential to have a thorough understanding of the correct meaning of the houses of the horoscope. It is from this basis that all successful interpretation is based.

As with each of the other lessons there are assignment questions included at the end to test your understanding. If you email your answers to Peter Burns he will send a commentary free of charge.

Derived Houses

Lesson 6C Derived HousesThis is Lesson 6C from the Horary Astrology Correspondence Course.

Derived houses, alternatively called ‘turned’ or ‘rotated’ houses, are used in both horary and natal astrology. A derived house has a special relationship to something or someone in the client’s life. The use of derived houses enables us to identify the planetary significator of almost anything or anyone.

Lunar Eclipse October 8

Lunar Eclipse in Aries Oc 8 2014tEclipses are a fascination for many people. Their supposed power is the stuff of legends. In order understand their astrological importance we need to get the basics right.

Eclipses occur at lunations (new and full moons) and are often trigger points for events.
At a lunar eclipse whatever is represented by the Moon is also eclipsed. Blocked out. Among other things, the Moon represents our emotional responses.

When the Moon is eclipsed the bright light of the rational mind, represented by the Sun, burns away our emotional fantasies. Reason dominates. At the moment there is a lot of internet talk about the supposed effects of the April 15 2014 Libran Moon, but in reality it is the Aries Sun which dominates, not the Moon.
In this case the Sun is in Libra. So how is the Sun in Libra? In its detriment, not able to provide decisive leadership.

The Sun is ruled by Venus in Libra, in its rulership but still blinded by the Sun.

The Sun-Moon/Uranus opposition sits at the midpoint of the impending Mars-Jupiter trine. Mars in Sagittarius rules the high moral ground where warlike adventurism is rationalized.

The Moon is conjunct Uranus with less than a degree of separation. Uranus has a splintering effect. It is the planet of breakaway, revolution, independence, terror and volatility. While the Moon’s light is obscured the harsh Uranian energies are directly opposed to the Sun. While the Sun in Libra conjoining Venus is known for diplomacy, it is difficult to picture diplomatic solutions to the volatile in the Middle East at this time. With 4 cosmic bodies in fire signs and all in aspect, the situation could become rather inflammatory.

In Bagdad at the time of the eclipse Saturn sits on the Midheaven (10th house cusp). It is a very serious time.

In Washington the eclipse chart has the Sun-Moon opposition very close to the ascendant axis (1st house and 7th house) with Pluto on the 4th house cusp (the IC).  A glance at the US Sibley chart shows that the Sun-Moon opposition of the eclipse chart squares the US Sun and the Midheaven of the eclipse chart conjoins the US Sun.

There are too many factors to cover in this short analysis but altogether the situation looks volatile.

Venus in Leo: Radiant love for everyone?

radiant love Venus LeoVenus, the planet of love, ruling things that are soft, pretty and attractive; chocolate, luxury, love and lust, young women and beauty, has entered Leo.

Leo is fixed, hot and dry, constant and generous, sometimes fierce, dominant and radiant.

In Leo Venus loses some of its softness and receptivity and becomes more outgoing, hardened and fixed. Her moisture dries up a little. Moisture is the bonding agent and consequently she bonds less and dominates more.

Does this mean that you will become more dominant in your love life? No, or at least it is unlikely.

While many astrological writers are fond of treating celestial events as though they apply to everyone, one of the foundation principles of astrology is that everyone has a different horoscope, and will therefore respond in different ways or not at all to specific events. Celestial events which correlate will my horoscope may not correlate with yours.

It has become common to extrapolate interpretations applied to cosmic events to a personal level, as though these events affect us all in the same way. If there was some confusion with mundane astrology, which deals with large groups of people such as nations, it might be understandable, but this does not appear to be the case..

This ‘broad brush’ application of celestial events to personal charts without consideration for individual differences is not good astrology, in my opinion. I think the fact that it is plastered all over the internet is a sad reflection on the state of astrology in the modern world.

Do we keep our silence on the matter, say nothing in case we might offend someone?

Are you concerned that in the public’s eye this generalized astrology might pass for excellent astrological practice?

Could there be a commercial incentive, such as attracting more views to one’s web site?

Does the fact that some who publish this homogenized astrology have qualifications from prestigious organisations influence our continued silence?

Is there anyone else who thinks as I do?

Pets in astrology

petThese seems to be confusion on a number of associated issues regarding pets.
Here I will discuss 4 related issues regarding the assignment of pets to the astrological houses.

1. I love my pet so much its like a child, therefore it is a 5th house matter.

So back to some basics: Small animals are represented by the 6th house ruler. The 5th house is reserved for babies. If ever a dog attacks your baby any doubt you may have on this matter will evaporate instantly.

Even when we have sentimental or strong feelings for a pet it is still a pet. Your relationship with the animal may be incredibly loving, but that does not make it a baby. A baby is a baby and a pet is a pet. Astrology reflects reality.

BTW in horary astrology a missing pet and its condition is represented by the ruler of the 6th house. In natal astrology we also look to the 6th house ruler. Click here to read about how astrological transits of the owner of a pet were reflected in the life and death of her pet cat Alexander.

2. I have a working relationship with a pet, such as a guide dog, so therefore my pet belongs to the 7th house.

One of the major differences between the 7th and 6th houses concerns hierarchy.

The 7th house is about equal relationships, and the 6th house is about unequal relationships. If a pet is in a working relationship that is a 6th house matter, so we look at the 6th house ruler. It is the human who is in charge, and it is the pet which is providing services for the human.

The same principle applies when we contract a sub-contractor or employ someone: that person is represented by the 6th house ruler.

3. I have a special loving relationship with my pet, which fills the void in my life since my partner died, therefore my pet belongs to the 7th house.

Just because we have a relationship with someone or a pet that does not automatically make it a 7th house matter. It depends on the nature of the relationship, not how much we love the pet.

To assume that because the 7th house covers our romantic relationships that it covers all relationships shows wishy-washy thinking and a lack of understanding of the astrology basics.

We have business and other relationships which belong in the seventh. These can be adversarial or cooperative, but what they have in common is that the two people are roughly on an equal footing.

Our colleagues at work fall into this category. But our relationships with those who answer to us or are in some sense subordinate to us at work come under the 6th house.

4. A relationship with a pet or child can morph from one level to another because feelings about that person or pet changes. Therefore we can use a different house.

Again the fundamentals of astrology are not understood.

The arrangement of the houses is not based on how we feel. Some may entertain this notion from a sentimental point of view and would like it to be the case, but the horoscope is not a projection of our feelings. It’s about a more objective reality.

Once we start changing the meaning of the houses because we have strong feelings about something our capacity to be objective is diminished.

It is true that we may engage in activities with our children that can be categorised under different houses, such as a negotiation concerning rights (7th house), a game of scrabble or a walk in the park (5th house activities), or even run a business together (10th house activity).

The activity is one thing but our children don’t suddenly belong to the 7th house just because we engage in 7th house activities with them. They will always be our children no matter how grown up they become. This reflects a biological reality and this reality is rooted in our deep sub-conscious. Astrology must reflect reality.

Once we start imposing our ideals about how we think things should be astrology, and our clarity about reality, becomes diminished.
