Scorpio Perspectives: The Houses
The Twelfth House: Exploring the Deep Unconscious
The Eleventh House: Dreams, Humanity, and Compassion
The eleventh house connects us to like-minded organizations that help us improve our lives and build our dreams. The eleventh house is all about compassion, humanity, and dreams.
Our attitudes towards humanity shape how we contribute towards the earth as a living entity, using our dreams, ideas, and actions to build a world we want to share with others.
This is a social house, and we can view how a person socializes and what sort of people they are attracted to when they want to see the bigger picture. It is not a personal house, but about our wider social circles, including those we do not necessarily like but who have something to offer.
The Tenth House: Career, Ambition, and Midheaven
The tenth house is one of the most significant houses in astrology, dealing with issues such as status, recognition, authority, career fulfillment, and actualization. The planetary ruler of this home is Saturn, whose symbol is the goat. The 10th house cusp is in a person's natal chart where they are most likely to realize their professional goal.
The 10th house is the opposite of the 4th, which represents home and family. It reflects your status in society and what you do to help others in a public way. It is also the place where you are most able to put all of your ambition skills into play toward gaining status, fame, or success, as well as positions of authority.
The Eighth House: Transformation, Evolution, and Crisis
The Eighth House is one of three psychic (or psychological) houses, and it shows the native's dealings with other people's money in the birth chart either as an investor or speculator. They are accountable for those they gamble on or give their investments to; such things can go well sometimes but often end badly when unnecessary risks are involved.
The Eighth House is the house of crisis and death, where an individual confronts their psychological dilemmas. Indiviuals here learn to see all problems in a spiritual light rather than just psychologically; they draw upon their spiritual strengths and resources to deal with these situations.
The Seventh House: Lovers, Partners and The Jungian Shadow
The 7th house is all about relationships, which means they are complex and ever-changing. The people who come into our lives evoking robust emotional responses are to be looked at as mirrors that reflect our inner world or direct catalysts for our evolutionary growth. Each person that enters into your life has the capacity to completely change it, for better or worse!
While the 7th house can be lopsided and unbalanced at times (something we will discuss in another article), there are many gifts and lessons to be gained through it, as it will challenge you in ways that no other house will.
The Sixth House: House of Service, Work, and Health
The Fifth House: House of Self-expression
The Fourth House
Your sense of home is likely to change as you get older. Where do your roots lie? If the first house tells us about how we handle the world, then the fourth house tells us what motivated those decisions. Is it more important for you to be with family or explore unknown territory and create a new community elsewhere?
