All good stories have a challenge that needs to be resolved, and the astrological chart gives us a very simple way of sorting out those challenges. It all comes down to the opposition. What’s the 3-9 challenge?
Seeing the Forest and the Trees
The 3rd House / 9th House axis is about knowledge, among other things. The 3rd House is about the details, the facts, the data, the trivia, the gossip. The 9th House is about the meaning, the concept, the philosophy, and Truth with a capital T.
We hear the expression, “You can’t see the forest for the trees.” But sometimes the reverse is the problem: “You can’t see the trees for the forest.” These two dilemmas are classic challenges indicating a story striving to balance the 3rd House and 9th House.

Money, Sex, and Power
The 2nd House tells us about possessions, money, and values. It states what is ‘mine’. It suggests the kind of attitude you may have about money. (Is money something you cling to? Is it something that slips through your fingers?) Your possessions, and certainly your values, can often be viewed as an extension of yourself.
The 8th House presents you with the possessions, money, and values of other people. From a distance, this can seem innocent enough. But when you start to build a serious relationship with someone (a 1-7 connection), you slowly learn if their values are compatible with your own.
All good stories have a challenge that needs to be resolved, and the astrological chart gives us a very simple way of sorting out those challenges. It all comes down to the opposition. We’ll start with the 1-7 story:
The 1st House tells about me. It tells how I approach situations, how I start new ventures, and it tells how I tend to see the world.
The 7th House describes the qualities that I don’t feel I possess myself so I am looking to find them in somebody else. It tells something about ‘you’ and something about what I perceive is the ‘us’ in the relationship.
