Esoteric House Interpretations

ESOTERIC ASCENDANT: This House rules our Soul’s Purpose— the purpose for which the Soul came into manifestation. For example, Gemini-Virgo, ruled by Hermes, is the communicator at all levels. This House rules activities with National Implications – social reforms, national issues, social services, and activism.

ESOTERIC SECOND HOUSE: This House is a healing house and it rules body movements that sustain the body such as yoga, aerobics and bioenergetics.

  • This is the most COMPULSIVE House and planets here behave compulsively.
  • Spiritually, it is sharing what we have with others, fair trade organizations (with the 4th House) and agriculture in under-developed areas of the world. This is a medical House tending to the physical body, body movements and techniques for its maintenance.

ESOTERIC THIRD HOUSE: This is the House of Right Human Rights through Unity Consciousness. It marks the Universal Communicator. Gemini represents the Principles of democracy— that all people must have the knowledge, the education and the information by which they can make choices for themselves. Otherwise, you cannot have a democracy.

  • Fields of Education – nurturing the minds of others. Reform through communications and media; head-start programs, Special Education; and not playing favorites with those in one’s immediate environment.

ESOTERIC FOURTH HOUSE: This House rules environmental issues, the environments in which people lives, humanitarian issues connected with disasters of nature.

  • When I began traveling to Europe, I found people who looked exactly like people I knew in America. I found the astrological connection to be with the 4th House…that there must be some ancient, ancestral connection with each other.
  • This House, with the Fixed Star, Antares (9° Sagittarius), rules the Root Chakra— our rootedness to the planet. When disturbed, our immune system is affected. The House position of Antares shows where we can feel rooted. This could be helpful for Immune System diseases.
  • Caroline Myss wrote that, when there is a sickness in society, there is some global sickness. During WWI, there was the Great Influenza. During the Great Depression, there was polio. When the economy improved after WWII, a cure for polio was discovered. The 4th House rules grass-roots political movements and one who always opposes those in office.
  • Spiritually, the 4th is associated with nurturing the very young and very old, visiting and working with the elderly, halfway houses, AA programs, day care centers, services to improving the quality of life for the less fortunate and improving the ecology and environment where you live.
  • This is a House that rules grass roots politics, as well as environmental issues. One environmentalist in Prag has Virgo rising but the Moon is in the 2nd House in Libra. Mars and Saturn are in the 4th but not connected to Soul’s Purpose— this means that it is a vehicle for her anger from her childhood.

NOTE: I have Antares in my 4th House and I need a permanent home that is always there for me. To live in an apartment and not have a place of my own, I found feel ungrounded and disconnected and, surely, my own immune system would suffer. One student said that she only needed a home that was a safe haven for her, to feel connected to this planet.

ESOTERIC FIFTH HOUSE: The 5th House Creativity of the Soul. Its Soul’s Purpose is connected with nurturing the creativity in young people. The Soul’s Purpose may involve working with children, helping others to become more creative and spontaneous (such as Martha Stewart and the woman who made the poncho in prison). Children can be connected with nurturing and acceptance— retarded, homeless, foster care.

  • Critical people are rarely spontaneous. Creativity helps bring out the child in one’s self. Studies in personality development and the Chakras are ruled by the 5th. The 5th is associated with drama, film, theater, psycho-dramas and educational arenas in which people have fun— conferences, expos, festivals and seminars.

ESOTERIC SIXTH HOUSE: This is a Service House and it is a Healing House. For healing, it is setting up health systems, herbs, vitamins and exercise. Sixth House healers help others to change negative patterns in their lives in order to improve overall health and well-being.

  • Spiritually, this House rules Health and Human Services, Public Service (esp. with 7th and 10th Houses), labor relations, healing services, nutrition, improving and reforming work conditions, animal rights, especially animals who serve man.

ESOTERIC SEVENTH HOUSE: This House rules what we seek in others rather than build in ourselves. When we apply these qualities to ourselves, we can have an integrated personality. It rules counseling and the legal system. Spiritually, one must let go of expecting others to be what you need or what you want them to be, letting go of co-dependent or enabling attitudes. Look to others to reflect what you need and what you want to be— then integrate this into your own personality.

  • This is a House associated with the expression of Unity Consciousness— social wholeness and integration.
  • This House rules consultants but, esoterically, it is especially interested in integrating and unifying opposites and differences.

ESOTERIC EIGHTH HOUSE: This is a MAJOR Healing House— healing those who are totally out of control. But, healing can be physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, economic and even technological. It has great power for transformation and rejuvenation.

  • Neptune here rules a spiritual guide of someone we knew in our youth.
  • With the 4th and 12th, it rules our connection with our Soul Group. When there are strong afflictions between the 4th and 12th Houses, this often indicates a violent death in the past life. This can be part of the trauma.
  • It rules psychic dreams, out of body experiences, life after life studies, near death experiences (inconjunct to ruler) and a connection with spirit guides. It can help others make transitions.
  • It is our attitude towards death— do we fear God? Saturn in the 8th is often afraid of God. But, studies in reincarnation and life after death are transformational for these individuals, liberating them from the fear.
  • It is also a House of Inventions. Spiritually, it is associated with finding money for those in need. A lesson is found in learning acceptance through studies in reincarnation.

NOTE: Liberating and change can come with the death. A friend with Virgo rising and the Moon in the 8th helped others cross over.

ESOTERIC NINTH HOUSE: Spiritually, the individual experiences expansion through exposure to people who are socially and culturally different from one’s self. The lesson is in learning to accept differences through travel, education and the cultivation of inclusiveness in spiritual concepts and philosophies. Remember, “the children of God are of One Blood.”

ESOTERIC TENTH HOUSE: Our Soul’s Purpose is to come to the public. It portends a Public Service career. Martin Luther King Jr. had his Esoteric Rulers in this House.

ESOTERIC ELEVENTH HOUSE: The 11th House rules heart-centered groups in service to humanity— New Group of World Servers who share the same vision for humanity.

This House is associated the Heart Chakra or the opening of the Heart Chakra. The Fixed Stars Betelgeuze at 26 Gemini and Sirius at 13 Cancer are connected with this Chakra.

ESOTERIC TWELTH HOUSE: This said to be the House of Personal Un-doing. Lack of acceptance, lack of nurturing and lacking in an ability to RECEIVE is truly self-undoing. The emotional handicap we experience creates a self-imposed prison.

  • The sentence ends when we learn to accept ourselves AS IS— as well as others. In going through hell ourselves, we can learn compassion and acceptance of others. This House is a Guinea Pig house— what happens to us we can use to help others.
  • Let go of fear!! Fear itself can provide a feeling of security— I cannot do something because of my “nerves,” my phobias, my fears! Remember, when the ego dominates, you will ALWAYS feel insecure. After this process has taken place, the individual can help others to free themselves from similar entanglement.
  • For example, in the chart of Martin Luther King Jr, Vulcan in Aquarius in the 10th shows a destiny to free people from restricting positions, status and standards of living by opening up professional avenues and changing societal views, such as equal rights for blacks, women and minorities.
  • This House is connected with unseen worlds, spirit guides and going inside for guidance.

    Both AABailey and myself use Placidius. I met a woman year ago who was a friend of Bailey and I was able to read her Soul’s Purpose Triangle typed by Alice herself. This was a lot of work.

    (asc)ARIES— The Soul’s Purpose is to create new ideas and to channel quick solutions to immediate crises.

    Mercury esoteric ruler found in 11th house ruler aquarius: ESOTERIC ELEVENTH HOUSE: The 11th House rules heart-centered groups in service to humanity— New Group of World Servers who share the same vision for humanity.

    Aquarius esoterically speaking is Jupiter found in 1st house for me:Esoteric House Interpretations

    ESOTERIC ASCENDANT: This House rules our Soul’s Purpose— the purpose for which the Soul came into manifestation. For example, Gemini-Virgo, ruled by Hermes, is the communicator at all levels. This House rules activities with National Implications – social reforms, national issues, social services, and activism.

    How do I put this together and am I missing something by not mixing Taurus in this mixture? As Jupiter is in Taurus in 1st house?

  3. Lynn Koiner Says:

    Amandria: You have done extremely well with this.
    TRIANGLE:
    * Aries Asc
    * Mercury in Aquarius in 11th
    * Jupiter in Taurus in 1st

    Aries is learning to work with mental (not emotional) intuition — fast solution to crises situations. Helping others to set priorities and organize their activities.

    Mercury in Aquarius in 11th is working with Heart-Centered Groups — helping them in some way or working with the New Group of World Servers…

    Jupiter in Taurus in 1st — This House rules activities with National Implications – social reforms, national issues, social services, and activism.

    The element of Taurus is liberating people or situations that are snarred in some form of captivity or stereotypes.
    Vulcan is the ruler of Taurus but you would not use this in the triangle, only in terms of liberation from bondage, spiritual, psychological, stereotyping.

    Lynn:

    Thank you for this wonderful article and your talent I just started studing tropical and Sidereal astrology a year ago now, but am picking up quickly with the greatest of interest. Esoteric astrology is new for me. But i will now look foward to study all that I can! Along with your work are there additional reading suggestions your would direct me to?

    I am on path, in discovery of my life’s Soul’s Purpose. I have studied Ruhdyer and others re: my natal north nodes (at 1 cancer on MC in 10th). Finally, and i realize i am taking up too much of your time in my post here, but would love you opinion: (and is what originally directed me to your work here) My natal chart I noticed this week that I currently i have Uranus transit conjunct my natal Vertex exact at 12 degrees Aries. I cannot seem to find any published info on this conjunction. Your Vertex article was the most I lightening tho.

    Finally here is my first go at your study which was facinating a practice in discovery. Please direct me if i am missing, or may have added too many, points. Thank you for sharing your gift!

    ESOTERIC ASCENDANT Is Libra: (could not find your esoteric sign interpretations). This House rules our Soul’s Purpose— the purpose for which the Soul came into manifestation.

    ESOTERIC ELEVENTH HOUSE is Leo: The 11th House rules heart-centered groups in service to humanity— New Group of World Servers who share the same vision for humanity.

    Mercury esoteric ruler found in 11th house ruler of Leo -is ruled by the Sun — the center of the universe and the fuel for our being—

    Sun is the 10th house for me: ESOTERIC TENTH HOUSE: Our Soul’s Purpose is to come to the public. It portends a Public Service career. Martin Luther King Jr. had his Esoteric Rulers in this House

    Jupiter in Taurus my 8th house: ESOTERIC EIGHTH HOUSE: This is a MAJOR Healing House— healing those who are totally out of control. But, healing can be physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, economic and even technological. It has great power for transformation and rejuvenation.

    It is also a House of Inventions. Spiritually, it is associated with finding money for those in need. A lesson is found in learning acceptance through studies in reincarnation.

  5. Lynn Koiner Says:

    LEANNE (7-2013): Study one system or another but better to study the system most people use, Tropical.

    You need to read my article on the esoteric signs. Libra on the Ascendant marks one who bridges differences.

    The esoteric ruler of Libra is Uranus. What you have written about does not apply to the Soul’s Purpose.

    Read all of the esoteric articles and then try the triangle. Good try though. I appreciate people who make an effort.

  6. lynne Says:

    Dear Lynn…have appreciate your site and sharing of information.

    Thank you for your consideration

  7. Milcah Says:

    This is a very informative article but I was wondering if I could possibly get some more clarification. In terms of esoteric astrology I’m just not sure how to put it all together, it works for regular western astrology but this one is tricky for me. I a 23 degree Sagittarius rising with a 16 degree Scorpio (11th house) sun and 15 degree Libra (9th house) moon. Here’s a little list of my planets and stuff, hopefully someone can help me.

    Ascendant-Sagittarius 23 degrees
    Sun-Scorpio 16 degrees (11th house)
    Moon-Libra 15 degrees (9th house)
    Mercury-Scorpio 20 degrees (11th house)
    Mars-Virgo 5 degrees (8th house)
    Venus-Libra 12 degrees (9th house)
    Jupiter-Capricorn 14 degrees (1st house)
    Saturn-Aries 1 degree (3rd house) in Retrograde
    Uranus-Aquarius 1 degree (2nd house)
    Neptune-Capricorn 25 degrees (1st house)
    Pluto-Sagittarius 2 degrees (12th house)
    Chiron-Libra 24 degrees (10th house)
    North Node-Libra 7 degrees (9th house) in Retrograde

    Just in case you need the actual time and place I was born:
    8 November 1996
    Brooklyn, NY USA
    09:42am

    If you’re able to help in anyway, thank you! I just don’t really know how to put the signs together with the houses and stuff. It’s a lot harder finding things on esoteric astrology on the internet, usually I’d just look it up.

  8. Timothy Says:

    Hi Lynn,

    Thank you so much for these fantastic lessons in esoteric astrology! I still have much to learn but thought I would see what you or others might think:

    I have Aquarius rising, with Jupiter in the 2nd and Mercury in the 8th. (Aries is the sign on cusp of my second house)

    I recently saw an esoteric astrologer by the name of Debra Silverman and she asked me: “do you know you have incredible healing energy?”

    I can’t say that I know what this energy is for sure, but I’m now guessing her assessment has something to do with the healing qualities of the 2nd and 8th houses of which you speak.

    In fact Jupiter and Mercury are in exact opposition on this axis. I also have the sun, moon, and Venus in the 8th.

    So it does sound like a lot of healing energy at work here, and I can identify with that. People having serious problems tend to lean on me. It is very rewarding to help them, but unfortunately I find they disassociate with me once they are healed.

    Perhaps that has something to do with Neptune in my 11th.

    Fortunately I have given so much thought about death (8th house) that the comings and goings of people in this short existence of mine does not so much affect me any more. I found your article on Esoteric Cancer to be quite enlightening in this regard.

    Thanks again, Lynn!
