The 6th House and Herb Gardens

Herbs and herb gardens are shown in your sixth house.

 

Uranus conjunct Neptune

During the Huge Conjunction of 1991/93. Uranus conjoined Neptune for the first time in 170 years this time in Capricorn.

At the time I was a mamber of the Cape Town Astrologroup.

They had a particular meeting to celebrate the conjunction of Uranus and Neptune.

The activity that night was to get into huddles depending on which house the conjunction occurred in our natal charts.

6th House

For myself it was the 6th house.

I joined with the other astrologers in the clutch who had the Uranus Neptune conjunction in their 6th houses as well.

This is not the most exciting house in a chart because it is about health, daily rituals, service and work.

They began discussing their work and how busy they were, but it did not resonate with all the group members.

Someone said they had started gardening.

Well that was the catalyst for an animated discussion as we all had taken up gardening recently.

Then we got onto herbs… 🌱

 

My First Herb Garden – Cape Town

I was able to tell them about the new herb garden I had recently designed and had constructed in my garden.

It was down a narrow strip of land behind our house.

I explained how herbs had suddenly had more meaning for me.

That year I had been growing and cooking with fresh herbs and making interesting meals for my family.

Cooking with fresh herbs was something I had never done before.

It was glorious. I loved it.

Small plants are shown in your 6th house.

My Second Herb Garden – Phalaborwa

We later moved to another house right on the Tropic of Capricorn (that is another story) and again the garden needed care.

My husband and his guys laid out a beautiful 10m x 10m square herb garden with appropriate circles and a birdbath in the middle.

At the time of construction, we made sure that money, yes cold hard cash, was buried below the concrete of the water feature.

This was to provide for the garden.

A nice touch.

I often wonder what those gardens look like today having had thirty and twenty-five years to establish themselves.

Inspiration

The inspiration for both layouts was based on the designs in Margaret Robert’s book Guide to Growing Herbs in South Africa.

Below is a simple plan for a four square herb garden.

Mars conjunct Saturn

Mars conjunct Saturn

by Alison Price

When Mars and Saturn get Together we Take Notice

Mars is all about action, energy and competing. Saturn favours control, form, strategy and concrete results.

The imagery is of the young guy in a red shirt honing his skateboarding techniques in the hard landscape of the city park.

How many times has he tried this jump?

Who is watching? His competition, the other young guys, or the pretty girls?





Mars Conjunct Saturn in the Signs

Every two years Mars moves around the chart and catches up with Saturn.

Traditionally Mars was known and the lesser malefic and Saturn as the greater malefic. It is probably not politically correct to use these phrases anymore and yet there is some truth in the labels.

We look to the ruler of the sign that the conjunction is happening in to understand what is going on.

As two planets join forces in a sign one planet will be better placed than the other and its energy can be accessed easier.

Mars will compete with Saturn and when Mars is applying to the conjunction it will rise before Saturn.

After the exact conjunction Mars will rise after Saturn.

Saturn spends about two years and three months in each sign (depending on retrograde periods) so sometimes a conjunction is repeated in the same sign twice.

Mars and Saturn will be conjoined next in April 2022 in at around 22 degrees Aquarius.

Find which house the conjunction will occur in your birth chart as this is the house for this conjunction.


Mars Conjunct Saturn in the Houses

First house

Start a diet. Mars is great for beginning things and with Saturn in your physical body sector, you can control your body size.

Second house

Start a mad-money plan. Decide you have a limited amount to spend on whatever you want and stick to it.

Third house

Take a course that will build on your strengths and bring you closer to your life goals. You can achieve good marks now.

Fourth house

Family dynamic relationships can benefit from you breaking down borders with close members for everyone’s benefit.

Fifth house

If you have kids they may need some guidelines this week as they test your patience. Make plans to give birth to your creative expression.

Sixth house

Sweat it out on the weights at the gym. This is a chance to expend energy to form your muscles and tone your long term health.

Seventh house

If you have been held back in asking someone on a date you now have the courage. If in a relationship you could thrash things out for mutual benefit.

Eighth house

If you are holding yourself back now is a time to examine any limiting strategies and bring things into the open.

Ninth house

There may be travel frustrations. You may experience difficulty if you are writing exams now because you have the desire to rush.

Tenth house

Promotion and putting yourself forward is favored now. Actively engaging in your career path is a good strategy.

Eleventh house

Competition is high. You want to win but perhaps at the expense of your team. You may be singled out and put forward as the front man or woman to represent your group.

Twelfth house

Your energy may be at low ebb. It is probably good to rest if you can. The best way to handle this period is to make master plans-of-action to be used later.
