Tell Me A Story (There are only six) – Part 6

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 6-12 challenge?

Be Rational or Follow Your Instincts

The 6th and the 12th Houses are both concerned with health. The 6th approaches it from more of a scientific perspective — adopting a lifestyle including exercise and proper nutrition, for example. Things you can measure thrive very well in the 6th House. The 12th house, on the other hand, approaches health from a more wholistic point of view. In this realm, being attuned with Spirit will nourish body, mind, and soul.

Tell Me A Story (There are only six) – Part 5

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 5-11 challenge?

Do I fit in? Do I want to?

The 5th house theme is to make a mark in this world, to leave something behind that is proof that you were here. For some people, this is done by raising children. An alternate way, or an additional way, is to venture into the world of creativity — of making something that only you could make. It doesn’t have to be in one of the mediums people typically identify as artistic; you don’t have to be a painter, musician, actor, or dancer. Your creative self could shine in the way you adapt recipes by tossing in secret ingredients, or in the way you maintain your car. Maybe you have a knack for wrapping gifts, or maybe you enjoy discovering new ways of getting strangers to chat with you. The important thing is that, whatever you are doing, you are doing it your way.

Seeing the Forest and the Trees

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.

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 2-8 challenge?

Money, Sex, and Power

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.
