Chart Ruler and Chart Overlays

Planets as the Chart Ruler

The chart ruler is the planet which rules the sign on the Ascendant. As the Earth rotates every planet gets to rule a chart as its own sign takes up the Ascendant position. When a particular sign is on the Ascendant, we can see that the signs will be on the other house cusps in sequence. Each sign lies on a house cups in order but not if there are intercepted signs.

 

Chart Overlay

A chart overlay will indicate that certain signs will be on the house cusps and we can discuss them in relation to the chart ruler. When the chart ruler is in the different houses its drive is modified in line with the house. Very often the meaning of this planet by its placement and complex is the main thrust of a person’s life.

Intercepted Signs

If you use Placidus cusps, or some of the other houses systems, you may have an intercepted sign. An intercepted sign is a sign that is fully engulfed in a house. The intercepted sign will not lie over a house cusp. An intercepted sign’s planetary ruler, (the planet that rules the sign), may not have a house to rule. This makes the planet weaker.

Intercepted sign come in pairs. There will either be two intercepted signs or none.

 

House Rulers

Always check which sign is on the cusp of each house and adjust your interpretations accordingly. For example if Libra has no house cusp then typically Scorpio may have two house cusps in a row.

 

David Bowie: Virgo and Pisces Intercepted

In the birth chart for David Bowie shown below, it has Virgo and Pisces as intercepted signs. Note the intercepted signs are a pairs of opposite signs.

 

Virgo Intercepted

Mercury, the ruler of Virgo, has no Virgo houses to rule. However, Mercury still rules the 4th and 5th houses through its rulership of Gemini.

 

Pisces Intercepted

However, Neptune, the modern ruler of Pisces, has no house to rule. This makes Neptune slightly weaker in this chart.

 

Consecutive Houses Same Sign

In Bowie’s birth chart, the signs of Gemini and Sagittarius (opposite pairs) are on two consecutive houses.

Gemini is on the 5th and 6th houses. So Mercury rules the Gemini house (and not the Virgo houses because there are none).

Sagittarius is on the 10th and 11th houses. This indicates that Jupiter has more influence through Sagittarius being on two house cusps.

David-bowie-chart

Luminaries Signs Intercepted

If the intercepted sign is Cancer or Leo it means that the Moon or the Sun do not have houses to rule. This makes them weaker which is unfortunate but typically another planet will step forward as the most influential in the chart.

 

Sylvester Stallone: Cancer Intercepted

In the birth chart for Sylvester Stallone shown below, it has Cancer and Capricorn as intercepted signs. Note the intercepted signs are a pairs of opposite signs.

 

Cancer Intercepted

The Moon as the ruler of Cancer has no house to rule! This make the Moon weaker in this chart.

Additionally, all planets in Cancer (the intercepted sign), that is the Sun and Saturn, will take step backwards as well and they will struggle to be prominent in his chart both natally and by transit.

By the way the Moon is the most elevated planet (nearest to the Midheaven), so this is a slightly redeeming factor for the Moon.

 

Capricorn Intercepted

Saturn the ruler of Capricorn, as the traditional ruler of Aquarius still rules the 2nd house. So Saturn does have a house to rule but not through Capricorn only through Aquarius.

 

Consecutive Houses Same Sign

In Stallone’s birth chart, the signs of Gemini and Sagittarius (opposite pairs) are on two consecutive houses.

Gemini is on the 6th and 7th house cusps and Sagittarius is on the 1st and 12th house cusps. This indicates that both Mercury and Jupiter will have influence through Gemini and Sagittarius.

How Planets Move

How Planets Move

Planet’s Movement

When you work with transits you pay attention to the planet’s linear movement, direct – retrograde – direct, but there is another component to take into consideration and that is a planet’s speed.

 

Read more >>> Retrogrades

Planetary Speed

Speed is typically calculated by how fast a planet can move each day and there is an average for every planet. If the planet moves more than the average, it is fast and if the speed is less than the average then the planet is slow.

Often it doesn’t matter to the interpretation, but when we take a broader look, as in a one year forecast, we need to be aware of this. Of the main solar system planets Chiron (which is, according to NASA, actually a comet) has very fast and very slow periods.

diagram-of-planetary-orbits

Johannes Kepler

Kepler’s second law of planetary motion states: A planet sweeps out an equal area in equal time. Simply put the further a planet is from the Sun in its orbit the slower it moves through the zodiac. Most orbits are elliptical (have two foci where one is the Sun) and some distances are more extreme than others.

For example: Pluto was nearer the Sun during its swift transit through its own sign of Scorpio from 1984-1995 (on and off) for only eleven years.

Pluto was in Taurus (on and off) during the period 1854-1883 for almost twenty-nine years. Remember during Pluto’s transit of Scorpio it was at times nearer to the Sun than Neptune!

We also note this phenomenon when the Moon is fast or slow for a while each month.

Johannes Kepler in the early 17th century, plays a crucial role in the science of celestial mechanics.

Kepler’s Second Law states that a line segment joining a planet and the Sun sweeps out equal areas during equal intervals of time. In simpler terms, as a planet moves along its elliptical orbit, the imaginary line connecting it to the Sun sweeps through the same amount of area in equal time intervals.

Kepler: Limerick

Here is my Kepler Limerick which popped into my head one sunny day.

Now Kepler he had a good thought

as planetary motion was fraught.

Each orbit he found

had swept out equal ground

and now his second law is taught.

Why We Care

Kepler’s Second Law provides a key insight into the dynamics of planetary motion. It shows that a planet adjusts its speed as it orbits the Sun to ensure that the areas it sweeps out in a given time are always equal.

 

Planets With Eliptical Orbits

Whilst all planet have eliptical orbits, non are exactly circular, some planets have more pronounced eliptical orbits than others.

Here are a few planets to take note of:

The Leo Creator Economy in the Age of Aquarius

The Leo Creator Economy in the Age of Aquarius

The Creator Economy

Overview

We are now stepping into the era of the creator economy, where independent and individual creators can thrive.

This unprecedented phenomenon marks a significant departure from historical norms.

The advent of the internet has swung open wide doors for creative individuals to craft and showcase their content, products, and expertise to a vast and diverse audience.

The creator economy refers to a modern economic ecosystem in which individuals, often referred to as “creators,” leverage digital platforms and technologies to produce, distribute, and monetize their own content, products, or services directly to their audience or consumers.

This concept has gained significant prominence due to the rise of the internet, social media, and various online platforms that enable individuals to showcase their talents, expertise, and creativity without the need for traditional intermediaries like publishers, record labels, or studios.

Podcast Episode

Listen to this podcast episode for a richer experience.

 

Key Features of the Creator Economy

Content Creation

Creators produce a wide range of content, such as videos, articles, podcasts, music, art, photography, and more.

The content can be educational, entertaining, informative, or inspirational, catering to specific niches and audiences.

Digital Platforms

Creators rely on digital platforms like YouTube, Instagram, TikTok, Patreon, Substack, and other websites to share and distribute their content.

These platforms provide a global reach and offer tools for engagement, interaction, and monetization.

Direct Audience Engagement

Creators often build a dedicated and engaged community of followers, fans, or subscribers.

They interact with their audience through comments, messages, live streams, and other forms of direct communication.

Monetization Strategies

Creators monetize their work through various methods, including ad revenue, sponsorships, merchandise sales, subscription models, crowdfunding, and offering premium or exclusive content to their most devoted supporters.

Individual Branding

Creators develop their personal brand, which encompasses their unique style, voice, values, and expertise. This branding helps them stand out and build a loyal fan base.

Flexible Work Environment

The creator economy offers flexibility in terms of work location and hours. Creators can work from anywhere and often set their schedules according to their preferences.

Entrepreneurial Opportunities

The creator economy enables individuals to turn their passions and talents into viable businesses.

It empowers them to become entrepreneurs by building and growing their own brands.

Challenges and Risks

While the creator economy offers opportunities, it also comes with challenges such as maintaining consistent income, dealing with algorithm changes on platforms, and managing online harassment or negative feedback.

Overall, the creator (Leo) economy represents a democratization (Aquarius) of content creation, allowing anyone with talent and dedication to potentially reach a global audience and earn a living from their creative endeavors.

It has transformed the traditional media landscape and reshaped how people consume and engage with content.

The Virgo/Pisces Shift

The Age of Pisces

Over the course of the past two millennia, individuals often played the role of workers within a collective framework, resembling the Virgo archetype.

This paradigm was often at odds with the principles of the church, characterized by the Pisces energy, where themes of sacrifice and redemption held sway under the influence of those who wielded control over the labor force (Virgo).

The dynamic interplay between Virgo and Pisces has now yielded ground to the emerging energies of Leo and Aquarius.

Value Creators

Education Shift

Individuals such as YouTubers, writers, influencers, and creators of educational content are experiencing a surge in prominence.

Learning is no longer confined to traditional institutions like universities or religious establishments; now, you have the opportunity to glean knowledge directly from individuals.

In this era of the creator economy, and particularly within the Age of Aquarius, everyone possesses unique passions that can be skillfully packaged and delivered through the avenue of solo entrepreneurship.

Leo

Creative Independence

Leo embodies the essence of the creator, finding its resonance within the realm of the fifth house, known for its profound creativity.

The ascent of creative principles finds its symbolism in Leo, juxtaposed with its counterpart sign, Aquarius.

The present landscape reveals an unprecedented surge in independent enterprises.

The capability to encapsulate one’s skills and unique expertise to establish a business has never been as prevalent as it is now.

The Age of Aquarius

Dawn of the New Age

The Age of Aquarius dawned around the year 2000.

The Age of Aquarius made its initial appearance with the harnessing of electricity, a development around the 1830s closely following the discovery of Uranus on March 13, 1781.

Aquarius

Aquarius is the sign of innovation and the internet, smart phones, computers and all manner of tech gadgets. People born under the sign of the Water Bearer are often associated with unique and unconventional traits.

Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus, which adds a touch of innovation, unpredictability and originality to their character. These people are often known for their independent and forward-thinking nature.

Strongly Aquarius folk thrive on creativity, new ideas, and intellectual pursuits which makes them great problem-solvers and visionaries.

Aquarius Seems Sociable

Being friendly and seemingly sociable are strong characteristics of Aquarians.

They possess a genuine concern for humanity and often engage in humanitarian efforts.

The Uranus ruled ability to connect with people from all walks of life makes them excellent communicators and team players.

Aquarius Personal Style

One of the distinctive attributes of Aquarius is their emphasis on individuality and a desire to stand out from the crowd. They are unafraid to challenge societal norms and carve their own paths.

This trait can manifest in various ways, from their personal style to their choice of career or hobbies.

Aquarius and Relentless Innovation

Aquarius is symbolized by the Water Bearer, which signifies the flow of knowledge and ideas.

This symbolism underscores their role as forward-thinkers and carriers of innovation.

They have an innate curiosity and a thirst for knowledge, which drives them to explore new concepts and push boundaries.

Aquarius Stimulates Mental Connections

In relationships, Aquarians value mental connections and intellectual stimulation.

They seek partners who can engage in deep conversations and share their passion for learning.

While they might seem emotionally reserved at times, they genuinely care for their loved ones and express their affection in unique and unexpected ways.

As you embrace astrology as a creative and inspirational tool for living your best life, you might find that exploring your Aquarian traits helps you tap into your natural inclinations.

Embracing your independent spirit, nurturing your creative pursuits, and channeling your humanitarian instincts can empower you to navigate life’s journey in a fulfilling way.

Pluto in Aquarius: 2022 – 2043

Pluto entered Aquarius starting in 2022 until 2043. It will tenant the realm of the fixed air sign for approximately two decades.

This era coincides with the emergence of Chat GPT and the remarkable rise of accessible artificial intelligence (AI).

This significant transformation in our approach to various projects is poised to gain momentum over time.

The advent of cyber currencies (Uranus in Taurus) serves as a tangible manifestation of this impetus for innovation, embodying the collective voice of humanity.

Opposition Aspect (Leo/Aquarius)

Projection and Freud

The concept of projection is inherent in the dynamic of any pair of opposing signs.

Projection is a defense mechanism that Sigmund Freud first introduced as a way to understand how individuals deal with emotions and thoughts that they find difficult to accept within themselves.

Projection involves attributing one’s own thoughts, feelings, or desires onto someone else.

In essence, it’s a way of displacing internal conflicts or uncomfortable aspects of oneself onto external people or situations.

This can provide temporary relief from dealing with those feelings directly.

For example, imagine someone who is struggling with feelings of jealousy but is unable to acknowledge this emotion within themselves.

They might project these feelings onto a friend, accusing the friend of being jealous of them instead.

In reality, it’s the individual who is experiencing jealousy, but they project it onto another person as a way of avoiding the discomfort.

Unconscious

Projection often occurs unconsciously, meaning that you might not even be aware that they are projecting your own emotions onto others.

It’s a defense mechanism that helps protect the ego from distressing or conflicting thoughts and emotions.

Projection and Jung

This concept has been widely studied and discussed in psychology. Carl Jung, a prominent Swiss psychiatrist, also explored projection as a way to understand the interactions between the conscious and unconscious mind.

He believed that projection could reveal hidden aspects of the individual’s psyche, offering insight into unresolved inner conflicts.

Projection and Personal Growth

Understanding projection can be beneficial for personal growth and self-awareness.

By recognizing when you might be projecting your own feelings onto others, you can gain insight into your own emotions and thoughts.

It allows you to take a step back, reflect on your reactions, and consider whether your perceptions are influenced by your own internal struggles.

Explore the Projection Concept

In your creative and inspirational approach to life, the concept of projection can serve as a valuable tool.

By exploring this principle, you can gain a deeper understanding of your own motivations, desires, and fears.

This self-awareness can guide you in making more conscious choices and fostering healthier relationships.

It’s important to remember that projection is a natural part of human psychology, and everyone engages in it to some extent.

The key is to develop the ability to recognize when it’s happening and to use that awareness as an opportunity for introspection and personal growth.

As you integrate this understanding into your journey of self-discovery, you’ll likely find that it adds another layer of depth to your creative endeavors and your pursuit of living your best life.

Each sign contains elements desired by its opposite counterpart.

Now, let’s direct our attention to the two dynamic fixed signs of Leo and Aquarius.

Leo and Aquarius

Wanting What You Don’t Have

The essence of opposites is beautifully captured through the interplay of contrasting themes.

In a harmonious dance, Leo and Aquarius have the potential to enhance each other’s completeness.

Leo stands to gain by embracing humility and recognizing the intrinsic worth of humanity.

Aquarius has an opportunity to nurture increased courage and delve into the depths of the heart.

Opposites Attract

The concept of opposites attracting and creating wholeness is a fascinating phenomenon found not only in nature but also in human relationships and various aspects of life.

Much like the interplay between night and day, the union of opposites can bring balance, richness, and a sense of completeness.

Day and Night

The cycle of day and night is a perfect example of how opposites complement each other to form a harmonious whole.

Day represents light, warmth, and activity, while night embodies darkness, coolness, and rest.

Yet, these apparent contradictions work together seamlessly, each contributing its unique attributes to the overall rhythm of life.

The transition from day to night and back again symbolizes a natural ebb and flow, a dynamic equilibrium that sustains the world.

Active and Passive

In human relationships, the attraction between opposites often stems from the idea that individuals with contrasting qualities can bring out the best in each other.

For instance, a person who is outgoing and extroverted may be drawn to someone who is introverted and contemplative.

Their differences create a complementary dynamic where one partner encourages the other to step outside their comfort zone, fostering personal growth and expanded horizons.

Quality

In a similar vein, the union of different strengths and perspectives can lead to more well-rounded solutions in problem-solving and creative endeavors.

When people with diverse skills collaborate, they often contribute unique viewpoints that enhance the overall quality and effectiveness of the outcome.

Light and Dark

Opposites also play a crucial role in personal development and self-discovery.

Embracing contrasting aspects of oneself, such as strengths and weaknesses, can lead to a deeper understanding of one’s identity.

Just as the night allows for introspection and rejuvenation, acknowledging our “dark” or less visible traits can lead to a more authentic and integrated sense of self.

However, it’s essential to note that the harmony between opposites doesn’t mean a complete erasure of differences.

Rather, it involves a respectful coexistence where each element retains its identity while contributing to a larger, harmonious whole.

Creative Inspiration

In relationships, for example, maintaining individuality while appreciating and valuing differences is key to a healthy and thriving partnership.

As you explore the idea of opposites attracting and creating wholeness, consider how this concept can enrich your creative and inspirational journey.

Just as day and night work together to sustain the natural world, your unique blend of qualities and experiences contributes to the vibrant tapestry of your life.

Embracing the interplay of opposites within yourself and your interactions with others can lead to a deeper sense of fulfillment and a more holistic approach to living your best life.

Points to Ponder

The Potency of Leo and Aquarius

Could individuals possessing a potent blend of Leo and Aquarius qualities excel in mastering the intricacies of the creator economy within our rapidly evolving digital era?

The prospect seems plausible, even quite probable.

However, if your aspiration as a creator leans toward becoming an influencer, it’s advisable to tap into your Leo attributes.

Of course, numerous astrological factors must be taken into account.

For those of you whose birth charts prominently feature the dynamic duo of Leo and Aquarius, whether through influential house placements such as the first or tenth, or through planetary presence in these signs, you stand a greater chance of thriving as a creator during this Leo/Aquarius era compared to many others.

Star of David

The Star of David is a major aspect pattern formed with six planets.

There are two grand trines and the planets from the one grand trine are sextile to the planets in the other grand trine.

This is a very rare major aspect pattern and sometimes the planets only form five of the star points which results a partial Star of David and not so important.

What to Consider

As the Star of David is made from two grand trines and six sextiles it has much of the meaning of the grand trine.

There are typically only two elements in play, fire and air or earth and water, so there is usually in one polarity either active or passive.

 

Interpretation of a Star of David

In this pattern the planets are spread about the chart which suggests a variety of interests and talents because of the six sextiles which indicate latent talents for the individual.
