Did I say eyes? Amanda has a Pisces rising

Your 7th house is all about your relationships with others. Ruled by Libra and Venus it is a good place to study when questions of love arise. If you have this placement then this means you have a Virgo ascendant. The sign here will show your other half, and the type of people you attract or want in your life. Or the people who want you- and you can’t help but wonder why?

A Pisces Descendant is not an easy place to be. These are people that appear very earthy, analytical, and precise- on the surface. Pisces is the opposite of Virgo as it embodies: transcendence and emotions -it’s anything but precise. The Pisces cannot be pinned down, it’s wishy washy and likes to run away into some other world. Like the hippies of the 60’sthe Pisces idea of love is all beautiful- but it doesn’t always deliver in the material world.

So now you can maybe understand what kind of difficulty such a placement can have. The Virgo rising person attracts people that are full of beautiful ideas and promises- that can prove to be completely untrue! The Virgo rising is fascinated with these people who can bring so much emotion into their life. But they must be careful to always seek the truth and not believe everything that is being promised.

Why are the Pisces types running towards the Virgo risings? As the old saying goes: “opposites attract”, and so the Pisces thinks that the Virgo is wonderful finally! Someone sensitive enough to listen to all the problems, wash the dishes, pay the bills. This is the relationship where one person is pursuing a dream to become an author for years- while the other person is the one taking care of all the real life stuff for them.

The good news is that the partner you are very likely to have is going to have amazing eyes. Not kidding, Pisces eyes are the ones with long lashes sparkles in them, blue or just dreamy and pretty.  You will find love with a very idealistic person, an artist, and musician. Your partner is going to be a person who will be very sweet and gentle towards you, who will look at you as if you a god or goddess. They will idealize you and think you are the best.

To know where and how you shall find this spiritual being, just look at the placement of your Neptune and Jupiter. The houses and signs they are in, can give you a clue of who this person might be.  All you have to do is make sure to have clear boundaries in the relationship.

Pleas watch out for these things:

Any drug or alcohol use-always avoid being the one to heal or fix the person. This will only result in pain for you. Not that you cannot help- but you will ruin yourself in the process.

Empty promises that never actually come true- watch the actions forget the words

Don’t have lovers take money or anything you hold dear for the sake of “helping them”

Make sure that they don’t have a criminal record (really)

Enjoy these things:

Helping them a little bit with making their dreams come true

Learning to have you emotions take hold in everyday life

Remembering you dreams and ideals- and making them a reality

The beautiful creativity and spirituality of your lover s and friends

Hope this post has been helpful, if you have any questions you are welcome to ask me.

I apologize for the long delay in posts. I was going through some difficult changes and transits 🙂

Venus in Capricorn: Bad taste

It has been a surprising discovery but one I am very sure of. Venus in Capricorn results in some very bad aesthetic preferences. What is Venus in Capricorn? It is all the blond wigs, fake nails, skimpy clothes and slutty looks, overflowing with vulgarity at its best. And yet, this is a good placement in a chart that does promise success in artistic fields and in a career in general.


Maybe this explains why how biggest stars in music look a little vulgar. But joking aside, this is indeed a very interesting phenomenon. What is happening here? My theory is that Venus as the planet of values, is overworked by the workaholic Capricorn. The result is a striving for beauty that is completely superficial and exaggerated. The Capricorn wants a good result-he invests in what society considers beautiful but without looking to see the reasons behind it. This investment can look almost clown-like as a result. It is not that it is unattractive-in fact these individuals are naturally beautiful!


They make themselves ugly but they can not see it! Venus is clouded by the judgment of Capricorn and it can not always measure beauty. Unlike the Libra or Taurus: this placement results in a completely unbalanced view of beauty and proportion. In taking all that society at a given moment considers stylish, sexy, popular but without matching it to any value of substance. This is the definition of vulgarity. To make matters worse-the Capricorn is a sign of the past-the conventions long gone. So this is the girl that still thinks that the Pamela Anderson look is in style.
In man this placement results in them liking that look I just described-they like woman that look “cheap” (think the movie Pretty Woman). In women, a lack of taste is strong-and yet they manage to be sexy to most. For this placement doesn’t lack confidence in love and in their own attractiveness…Perhaps sadly so.


The real problem is in the fact that at heart, these individuals are very conservative as they appear. And so they attract the wrong kind of attention and relationship and even abuse. The men don’t understand why they end up with a woman that they don’t want to marry or be loyal in the traditional sense. The women don’t know why they are not taken seriously and why they attract the wrong people. Sexually speaking, this sign tends to adopt all the dirt and scary aspect of sex. But they don’t enjoy it-they only play the part. I don’t mean to say they are sexually intense like the Scorpio or even Aries. Rather they play a part they think others would like: But what the majority likes happens to be bad taste.

Famous Examples: Females take on the appearance of Venus whole males take the females to the aisle.

The 8th House: Rising from the Ashes

“I am dead because I lack desire,
I lack desire because I think I possess.
I think I possess because I do not try to give.
In trying to give, you see that you have nothing;Seeing that you have nothing, you try to give of yourself;
Trying to give of yourself, you see that you are nothing:Seeing that you are nothing, you desire to become;
In desiring to become, you begin to live.”
René Daumal

The 8th house is the house of rebirth. Ruled by Scorpio it has all the mysterious characteristics of Pluto associated with it.This is not an easy house for any planet to be in,and yet its very powerful. This placement is like a dark cave,a deep pit with no light. Its an underground placement,so any planet is basically dropped and hidden in the 8th house. A planet no matter the sign that is in the 8th is going to be a “secret”. The potential and the true character is going to be very private and very confusing. Why confusing? mainly because at first it is hidden from you! As you grow older and wiser you would slowly unravel and reveal your own secret self. The planet would show you where you would have to change and grow.

The change through the 8th house is the kind the asks you to die. You must die in order to be reborn, your soul must rise form the dark cave that contains many  desires . Like those of the 8th house: Money,sex and control over others. Then the soul must be born again in a selfless manner. Because this is a Scorpio house then this change and rebirth can be born only through emotions. The problem is that this placement fears emotions more then anything! Scorpio need control over themselves and others to feel safe. But the more a person tries to hold on to this control the harder the death and rebirth process is going to be for them. This is a person that seems very calm and confident,but inside there is a war going on. what kind of war-depends on the planet and sign. If you have this placement you know what I’m talking about.

The 8th house is very much like that cave I described but its also a water house, What this means is that the changes are going to come and go. You will go through storms and periods of calm and happiness-your entire life. What happens many times is that when you are young you just know something-you feel destiny,and you act older then your years as a child. You know things that grown ups don’t want you to know. You understand human pain,but you are still to young to deal with it. Thats why a child with planets here would suppress this emotions. When a little older the intensity of the house manifests as a flood-all the water in the secret cave has to come out. The young person is run by desire to control or get rid of this emotions. This is dangerous and why this house gets a bad reputation. People at this stage use their power of intuition to control others. They do this out of pain not out of any evil desire. The 8th house wants to deal with the dark emotions of humanity but it doesn’t desire to hurt anyone. The person may self harm or become involved with wrong crowd.

The 8th house is “the wrong crowd”! These people understand pain and suffering. They tend to attract people that suffered or are mentally  unstable. At first this kind of involvement allows them to finally use their intuitive talent and to work with it to help others. the problem is that 8th house people are very “unstable” themselves. I mean it in a good way-they need time to clam down after the storm of emotions they live through. Thats why its best for them not to get involved with unstable people. Instead they can work or volunteer in a field such us: mental hospitals, criminal rehabilitation programs, police force, rehab etc…The 8th house makes great worrier and fighters for a cause-but not leaders. for some reason like the ocean  the public favor of this people falls and rises in a very unpredictable manner. Luckily, the 8th house likes to be behind the scenes anyway. When they get older the storms will be few and the power and lessons learned would be many.

This people have presence when they walk into a room and something about them makes them very attractive. They are attractive in the same way a African  lion is attractive to us humans: They know they are powerful but can contain it and spare you your life. If they learn to use their gifts to give others but also not to self abuse-they are the most beautiful souls you will ever meet.

Giving trust is hard for the 8th house and trust is the biggest gift from this people. If you love an 8th house person know that is the greatest gift, because this might as well mean they would die for you. The 8th house likes to keep things behind the scenes so don’t expect them to say things openly.

They like to speak with their eyes or better- with sex. This is a sexual house and sex is one of the only places where this people feel free and at home. This is the place where they rule! And the world is lucky for that. But what the 8th house really wants and searches for is the spiritual experience -that peace and wholeness. They know very little of that peace and they learn to appreciate  it and  find it in the strangest of places. They may use sex and money, two fields they are lucky to be naturally compatible with. But that wont make them happy, the 8th house wants to take the soul into that light they can see in glimpses from the dark cave . they want the waters to take them out into the open. They need to be ready to come out into the light. The light that they will know is brighter then  any other house a planet already resides in. Its the kind of light that only people that have spent years in a dark prison can understand. They need you to be the water-the emotional tide to free them. And the tide is nothing else but the emotion of love.

How Astrology Can Make Your Life Better

osbert

Astrology can make your life better if used in the right way. I stand behind that completely and I find it to be true.This blog has been a very simple and light drawing of astrology, simply because is very hard to go in depth in such a format and without any “real’ person in front of you. And because its more fun to talk about music and pop stars, isn’t it?

Astrology is a combination of science and intuition and only a good balance between the two gives the best results. I have no interest in proving astrology is real, I think its  a waste of time. At most I’ll say it’s a set of symbolic tools to explain a psychological profile of a person. Real astrology is very complicated and I’m still learning everyday and will keep learning all my life. But what I do know is it can make things better for a person. Why? Because self understanding leads to growth. When you understand the worst and the best about yourself and others then you can grow and change. It’s not always pleasant to view your shadow, but its necessary if you want to avoid the same traps over and over in your life. Self understanding leads to compassion! You can forgive yourself and others  more easily. You understand that everyone has different needs. Instead of liking or disliking others you try to see how they can become more happy and fulfilled.

Isn’t that beautiful? To see how we all are different and one and the same? This doesn’t mean there is no evil in the world or in people. But that evil can be avoided and turned into good. The worst impulse in a person can be their strongest point.  The pain can be a source of creativity, love and giving. You can see this in the aspects of any natal chart. The trine which is the easy “good'” aspect between planets doesn’t lead anywhere, why change that which is good? But the Square that creates drama, pain and difficulty can show where a person will succeed most later in life! You see how delicate and amazing astrology can be?

And because I’m only a person, one among many. I see and understand astrology in my own way and others see it differently. Astrology is like life there is no one simple answer but instead an endless amount of questions and answers that one can research all their lives. I can add my own view where happiness, compassion, love play a big part, I want others to be happy. But most of all I want them become brave and face themselves and find real freedom.

So read you birth chart. Study it as if you are looking in a mirror and you will be amazed at what you see. Unlike a mirror you natal chart is going to show you more than your physical beauty. You will be able to look deep inside and see something that is beyond. Beyond the face you show family and friends and beyond your hardships, towards truth and happiness.

 

Spirtuality Myths

I want to touch briefly on a very complicated subject,that of spirituality as seen in individual signs.

We tend to think the spiritual is apposed to the material world. Its that which is beyond the illusion of the body and the daily life,right? If so then the spiritual signs are the ones that transcend the illusion through intuition. Perhaps the ones that hold faith and devotion on a emotional and not rational level? I agree its true that some signs symbolize this type of ability. For example,water signs are considered to be more spiritual then others.

Pisces,Scorpio,Cancer are all more able to tap into the dream world. They are more emotional then the other signs and are ruled by feelings and passions. we will get back to the problem there later. Next,the earth signs are considered the most grounded in the “real world” so to speak. They see the world through the senses and the body and therefore they are seen as least spiritual. The fire signs come next-they are doers that want power. Air signs are somewhere in between for they are not ruled by the body or the heart,instead they have the mind to guide them. Of course this is all a very simplistic view but I’m sure many hold it without thought at times.

I would like to point out that this is all a complete myth! and ill explain why.

I believe no sign is better or worse but instead different. Everyone is spiritual,we all hold that spark inside but how we reach it in our lives is the difference. The water signs,those personalties that are “feelers” may indeed feel and receive daily little visions of something more.a world beyond even. But being so emotional they do not always even understand what they experience or feel. If anything such people are so sensitive that they become confused or agitated.

Sensitive people feel and know things but they are also get more easily unbalanced. So there is a strong tendency when young for sensitive people (symbolized by water signs) to shut themselves of. When this happens then all the spiritual or intuitive ability is asleep.

And that OK,it takes time to learn how to experience many feelings and deal with them in a healthy way. I would also like to point out that by closing themselves of,signs like Cancer tend to do less in the world. So no amount of wanting to make the world a better place is going to help. To make the world better-someone needs to do something and be out there to change it! And the dreamy Pisces isn’t going to do that. He would flow on into India or to the closest bar.

Air signs,though more rational and less inclined to be conservative and religious. Are at least more capable to holding on to morals and high ideals and doing something about them. The problem is they do tend to be skeptic and they like to argue too much. So the Gemini may argue about his ideals until he is bleeding but thats where it ends.   Another problem is that Air signs get bored very fast. What can be helpful is for them to have a community around them that holds their beliefs. In which case the Air signs will become great spiritual leaders of the group.

The fire signs,are surprisingly spiritual in a more conservative way. And they are more likely to do something even if their faith isn’t strong-they believe in a cause or a moral value. Their problem is they might not see the needs of others,in other words the ego is too strong. But that more then OK! they can channel that ego into action for the masses and leadership.

The earth signs are very practical and very sensual. They can experience spirituality through the material world and the body (think Tantra). They are also very loyal to their values to the point of stubborn. They have the ability to act but not burn out too fast and without needing a big audience. And through the senses they are connected to the real world and can channel the spiritual into the earthy reality around them!

I would like to finish this post with a song:

“Everyone is trying to get to the bar.
The name of the bar, the bar is called Heaven.
The band in Heaven plays my favorite song.
They play it once again, they play it all night long.

Heaven is a place where nothing ever happens.
Heaven is a place where nothing ever happens.”

-Talking Heads

Heaven isn’t a place with no sensuality,no earth or body-a place where nothing happens. Heaven is a struggle,an action and a dream. Its doing and building in the real world and making it a better place. And for that one has to use the tools:the body,mind and soul.
