THE STELLIUM – 4 or more planets in the same House (updated April 2021)

THE STELLIUM

FOUR OR MORE PLANETS IN A HOUSE OR A SIGN

by Lynn Koiner

 

A stellium occurs when 4 or more planets fall in a House.  One can have a Stellium with 4 or more planets in a sign (that can cover more than one House) but I am focusing upon the House Stellium.

This configuration creates too much energy coming into the activities and affairs of that House.  It generates obsessive energy.  The individual becomes obsessively focused with the activities of that House.  A better term is HYPER-ENGAGED.

Yes, a Stellium portends talent in its House and Sign activities but the affairs of that House take up all of the energies of the individual.  It is essential that the individual GET OUT OF THAT HOUSE by going to the opposite House.  A stellium likes an opposition to it.  The opposition makes the individual clearly aware that there is a choice whereas a stellium without an opposition can get trapped more easily in the congested House.

Besides the obsessive quality, the House activities will be upset for long periods when any planets transit a hard aspect to the planets in the Stellium.  Everything goes awry!

 

1st HOUSE:  When 4 or more planets fall in the 1st House, so many energies are coming into the personality segment that the individual can change from one day to the next.  This can cause physical disabilities.  If the individual cannot control the energies of all of the planets, they become too strong.  Lessons in patience and self-control are needed.  Since self-centeredness can become a problem, working through partnerships and 7th House matters such as counseling or consultant work can be helpful.  A partner or other people, such as clients, can balance the personality by drawing the energy, the focus, away from the individual’s own personality.  One young man with a stellium in Libra was excessively self-conscious.  He did not like the focus to be on himself.  He submerges his identity with others.  He went into the most dangerous brand of the Israeli army.  His mother commented that “You cannot say anything to him.  He is sensitive to any criticism (self-absorbed).”  His attitude is “What’s wrong with me?!!”

Lyndon Johnson had a stellium in Virgo with Leo rising.  He was a very arrogant man but he accomplished great things when he took the focus away from himself and obsessed upon human rights issues.

 

2nd HOUSE:  Too much energy in the 2nd House is not good for finances, even though these people can do well salary-wise.  With too many energies, too many choices, the financial reins should be given to a partner, a financial consultant – letting go of attachments to the physical is essential here!  These people can get so wrapped up in managing their own possessions and finances that these things rule their lives.  Any little transit from Mars or, worse yet, an outer planet, will cause chaos in the area of finances and possessions.  This, in turn, can affect the health.  One client had real estate holdings around the country and he wrote a book.  He would not release the energy to an agent – he was promoting the book himself and he traveled around the country trying to sell his properties.  He exhausted himself holding on to everything.

A friend with that unpleasant outer planet stellium in Leo (late 1940s) says that she is always being sucked into financial crises.

Years ago, a man with a 2nd House Stellium, kept canceling appointments – which was very unusual for this long-term client.  I think subconsciously he did not want to hear what I had to warm him.  Transiting Pluto was opposing his 2nd House Stellium and I knew that he was going to get into a professional project that was way over his head.  Pluto warns against anything complicated.  I later hear that he did indeed get into a project way over his head and had to declare bankruptcy.  Many of his investors lost a lot of money.

 

3rd HOUSE:  Many planets here can produce a “mental collector” with all sorts of ideas and mental interests.  Too much energy here can short-circuit the mind so that it does not feel comfortable in literary areas – too many choices.  They find it hard to relax mentally.  The mental energy should be thrown into the 9th House wherein knowledge is shared and theories and concepts are developed from what is acquired mentally.  There is a potential for consciousness expansion.  Formal education is essential here.

I have talked with many clients with this pattern.  They know they have abilities for writing and teaching but they do not know what subjects they should choose.  Yet, when they focus, they obsess mentally, losing perspective and becoming oblivious to what is going on around them.  Travel without any mental activity is a release.

The daughter of one client writes ads freelance but she obsesses over ideas causing mental frustration.  She acted as a surrogate mom to her siblings (obsessing over them).  She is very into her own thinking

Anytime many planets are focused in a cadent House the individual becomes a mental ponderer.  They think so much that they actually miss opportunities.  They find their timing is bad as a result.  It is like sitting at the bus stop thinking so hard about what you are going to do at the Mall once you get there that you miss the bus – all of the buses!  People with many planets in Houses 3, 6, 9 and 12 need to get out of their heads and be more physical.

Ideally, using the Astro-Carto-Graphy chart, the Cadent Stellium individual can relocate so that the Stellium is on an angle and it can be activated more easily.

An old astrological axiom is that, if the ruler of the 2nd House is part of a 3rd House stellium, the individual has a lot of ideas about making money but NO MONEY!

 

4th HOUSE:  There is a need to take the energies out of the “personal” home and put them into a professional activity that deals with 4th House issues.  The home life is often tumultuous, especially being upset with every little transit.  They do well in such 4th House areas as real estate, building and construction, archeology and anthropology, genealogy, history, historical preservation or activities connected with the past.  It favors working with weather conditions and environmental issues.  One woman helps adoptees find their biological parents.  Another was a mortician!  Their obsession is dwelling too much on their own past when they keep their energies in the personal sector.

The past is always a frame of reference for almost any 4th House placement, stellium or not.  The individual gets emotionally stuck in the past.  Getting out and working the land is very helpful.  I have observed that people who work with environmental issues obsess and lose perspective about what is really workable.

The 4th House is a Water House and events portended there can denote childhood traumas that control the life.  One individual born around 1989 with Neptune in Capricorn as part of a Stellium had problems around the father.  He had a successful career, he was physically active but something happened – the father began to drink, he lost his job, he went through the family money and finally lost the house.  This individual, as a child, had to move to a distant place and live with relatives.  Being extremely bright, I believe that he is driven by a fear of failure like his dad.

 

5th HOUSE:  This is the house of creativity but, with a Stellium, there can be too many options.  Hence, there may be a potential for helping to cultivate their own creativity.  They work well with creative groups.  In romance, the love life can be a maze.  There is a need to concentrate more on social relationships in order to take the heat off of the solar plexus and its personal, emotional involvements.

They need to work with impersonal relationships and KEEP them impersonal. While they often do not have children, their own children do take up too much of their energy.  They frequently have child-like qualities – do whatever is fun.  I know 2 individuals with a 5th House stellium.  One was a teacher whose students were like her own children.  She invited them to her home.  She became very involved in their problems.  She loved being a teacher because she was the drama teacher and helped the students create films.

The 5th House rules a specific field of psychology – the development of the personality, psychodramas and the use of the chakras in healing and personality training (Carolyn Myss).  The 2nd individual is a psychotherapist.  She has studied chakra therapy.  Her favorite is child therapy.  She never has clients hang on for years.  They work on their problems and they get cured and leave.

 

6th HOUSE:  Many Virgo traits show up with a Stellium in this House, even when there are no Virgo planets.  They obsess upon their jobs and their work.  They are perfectionists who too easily get wrapped up in their work and menial tasks.  Work and service activities absorb too much energy because of their affinity with the menial.  This can lead to hypochondria or, at least, a lot of complaining about their work.  They are dedicated to some service work – professional and personal (care-taking others).

They need to be in charge and to be self-sufficient (people never get so close that they can criticize, try to change or tell them what to do) but they also need to learn to delegate the menial to others.  Always, there is a need to go to the 12th House and get away from work and find some seclusion.  They must also find work that has a purpose.  Unfulfilling, menial, routine tasks can lead to health disorders in the nature of the sign but relating to assimilation and elimination.

A Libra Stellium would cause lower back pain (kidney connected) when work and work relationships become chaotic, Virgo would produce skin irritations or constipation (holding it all in), Leo causes back problems from shouldering too much of a work load, Cancer would cause stomach and digestive disorders due to fears and insecurities in work activities, Gemini could cause allergies and respiratory problems when the individual feels trapped and cannot “breathe” in the workplace.  The emphasis here is to take charge in service activities, delegate the menial and get away from work as much as possible.  Never work more than 40 hours per week.

One individual with a Virgo stellium has lupus.  She is a perfectionist and becoming ill forced her to take a break from her work obsessions.  NOTE:  I have found that the 6th House rules congenital health problems or health weaknesses.

 

7th HOUSE:  Individuals with a 7th House stellium as the least likely to marry or stay married.  So many energies come out in a relationship that they feel swallowed up by other people in close relationships.  They are often loners or they suddenly end relationships to break the relationship obsession.  Libran traits manifest in relationships, specifically indecision when dealing with others.  It is excellent for work in counseling or consultant occupations.  These de-personalize the one-on-one relationships.  The many planets in the 7th can describe many types of clients with whom the individual would deal.  This is excellent for a lawyer, arbitrator, psychologist and business consultant.

I have observed this Stellium firsthand.  The individual complains that the relationships take up so much of their energy that they lose their own identity.  It is easier to be a loner.  However, upon closer inspection, I observed that, when involved in a relationship, the individual obsesses upon that relationship to the point wherein he or she loses perspective, becoming oblivious to anyone or anything else.

A friend with such a Stellium visited the United States.  He stayed in Baltimore for 2 weeks and then he stayed with me.  When he was with me, he forgot all about his friends in Baltimore.  And, when he left to stay with one of my students, he became oblivious to me and certain obligations that he had to me.  He focused in on the person he was with and lost sight of everything else.  If I had not seen this myself, I never would have understood this phenomenon.  A very independent friend with such a Stellium would always lose herself in a relationship, devoting all of her energies to what the partner needed without regard for her own needs.  To end this obsession, she would just run away from the relationship.

 

8th HOUSE:  The 8th House Stellium must be in control of one’s own resources and finances.  If not, situations that seem totally beyond his/her control or upheavals seem to plague the life.  Gaining control over the uncontrollable is important so that studies in the occult, life after death, medicine, holistic health, financial planning are good outlets.  In handling large amounts of money, the individual should always be personally in charge.  Accountants and other financial planners can really mess things up.  This House also rules the partner’s finances.

I believe that the 8th House rules all things totally beyond our control and our attitude towards such affairs.  There is a pattern of taking control and then knowing when to release.  Obsessions with the uncontrollable can greatly complicate the life.  One individual with a stellium in Cancer is a financial planner yet he always feels out of control in his relationships because I have observed that he disempowers his relationships – he does everything and makes all the decisions, and then the other person cannot stand alone.  This is a problem in knowing when to release.

The healing talent of the 8th House is taking control, orchestrating the changes and repairs alone and then releasing it (to a client).  Healing can be physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, economic and even technological.  One client with an 8th House Stellium said that “I do not repair computers, I HEAL computers.”  He set up the computer system for a branch of the government.

There can be problems sorting out sexuality or a conflict between sexuality and spirituality.

Another facet of the 8th House is to obsess to the point of distorting reality.  One friend confessed that her 8th House sibling had a totally different perspective on her childhood than any of the other siblings.  Another woman only saw the positive in her husband – she was in total denial that he was a very controlling and abusive man.  I observed this firsthand and was amazed that the 8th House woman could not see what he was like.

 

9th HOUSE:  As with all Cadent Houses, the individual can come to live too much in the head – the ponderer — and not enough in the practical reality of life with real, livable philosophies.  These mentally oriented people can easily live in a world of philosophy and theory.  Theories about life and relationships can keep them from living in the real world which is so typical of Sagittarius.  Rather than become moralistic, they need to teach and share what they know – then allow others to draw their own conclusions.

They should never be oriented towards any single religious, spiritual or academic point of view – of course, they are never really sure of what they believe anyway!  Instead of always searching for a philosophy, something to believe in, a meaning to life, they should share what they know and travel to learn from others.  Travel always helps to gain a perspective.

I have observed some people with a 9th House Stellium in Fixed signs always thinking about travel but they stay at home!  In going to the 3rd House, you teach what you know, get the information out rather than just consuming more.

In a class with two 9th House stellium students, one was aggressive and one was passive but both agreed that THEY HAVE AN OPINION, especially about religion and politics!  They were obsessive in their beliefs.  One was offended when people asked for advice but did not follow it or ignored it.

 

10th HOUSE:  With a stellium in the 10th House, there are problems with the professional choice and dealing with authority figures.  The professional life should be connected with the home and one’s own property (hotel, day care or just being a house wife) or working out of one’s own home or property.

Being one’s own boss takes the pressure off of authority figure confrontations with every minor transit that afflicts the 10th House!  There could have been a very intense relationship with one parent and this, in turn, can create intense confrontations that affect the career.

Years ago, I had a client with a Stellium in Pisces in his 10th House.  Mars in Pisces, when hit by a transit, often describes a person who comes into the life who like working out in a gym.  My client was a self-employed CPA.  Transiting Neptune began squaring this Stellium.  I told him that he would get a client who worked out in a gym.  Indeed, this client came in second in a Mr. America Body Building contest and own a gym.  Because it was a square, I knew that he could be cheated and lose everything while Neptune was squaring his 10th House Stellium.  I told him to tell the client, if he did not have a check to pay his newly expanded staff on Friday, that no one would show up on Monday.  This happened twice but a courier came on Saturday with a check!  He told me that this job took up his entire life but, if the man ever did not pay him, he would have lost everything.  But, because of my advice, he made a lot of money, sold the business and because a coach in a gym (a retirement job).  This demonstrates how, using astrology, can turn a bad transit into a good transit.

11th HOUSE:  Involvements with groups, associations and organizations swallow up the individual and keep the individual from gaining a perspective (lost in the group Cause or values, like a lemming going to sea).  They find that they become part of the herd in terms of collective values when in any group.  They need to work with more personal goals and values and work with small, creative groups in which they feel a sense of control and stability.

In going to the 5th House, I say to stay with a group of about 5 people.  This could be a scouting group, an exercise gathering, a study group or a small support group.  Greater fulfillment goes through focusing with one’s own children.  Too much socializing can be neglectful.

 

12th HOUSE:  This is the Serve-or-Suffer House.  These people may have come from a past life monastery experience.  In this life, they need to get outside of themselves and involve themselves with service to others or they can become quite neurotic!  I have only 2 planets in the 12th, including the Ruler of my Ascendant so I know this House all too well.

In coming from a past life situation of seclusion which formed a life pattern of isolation, they must break this pattern now!  There is a need to get outside of one’s self and work with others.  It is easy, however, to escape within rather than go out into the world.  One woman with a Stellium in Aquarius had her finest hour when she dedicated many years of her life to taking care of a disabled child.  When not involved in service, she retreated to being a neurotic recluse!

It must be noted that 12th House people can never be out-and-about all of the time.  They need to retreat, to be alone and to be quiet.  They cannot be ON 24 hours a day.  They find it easy to disappear, to be invisible and tune out when around more aggressive or assertive types.  I have observed 12th House students simply shut down when more assertive types speak up or interrupt.

 

NOTE:  Only in more recent times have some astrologers said that only 3 planets form a Stellium but this is not true.  I have 3 planets in the 10th House and they definitely do not work like a Stellium.  Three planets in Gemini do describe my career but I am definitely not hyper-engaged with my career.  A transit to the first planet in the 10th, the Moon, is the most powerful but any transits to Uranus and lastly Mars tend to be less eventful.

  1. Hi Lynn
    Lately I’ve been duing research on my natal chart and specifically having 5 planets in my 2nd house- Sun, Mercury, Uranus and Neptune (all in Aquarius) and Venus in Pisces. As I read, it means trouble with finances ???? Is there any way To fix it or to make it more beneficial? My whole life I feel like my financial state ruins all other areas of my life. Thank you for your time, Anghelina

    1. A Stellium is neither good nor bad but you can become hyper-engaged or even obsessed over financial matters. Saturn will be crossing them soon (depending upon the degrees). This is a time to re-structure your financial life. With a Stellium, go to the 8th House. This means getting financial advice from trusted advisors. With my 2nd House planets, I have 2 investment brokers make the investments for me. No, I am not rich but my dad and his sister left me a small inheritance. As Saturn goes through the 2nd, it is a great re-structuring time, a time to save but a time to ask for advice. I am not good with money so I reply upon professionals.

  2. Hi Lynn,
    I have a stellium of 5 planets in Aquarius ( sun, moon, Saturn, Mars and mercury) 4 are in my 5th house and Mercury is in the 4th. I became ill in 2008 and no one could diagnose what I had until everything became so severe that I couldn’t work anymore in 2014. I was diagnosed with connective tissue disease overlap syndrome which is systemic sclerosis and polymyositis overlap and I have secondary Sjögren’s syndrome. My question is with all of the planets in one area, can that cause energy to be restricted etc. and can some kind of Saturn transit be one of the reasons that I have scleroderma? Thank you.

    1. I believe that I wrote to you privately as I have a friend who was born with that same Stellium in Aquarius. When Transiting Neptune crossed the Stellium, she developed an inflammatory disease (RH). It took years to finally get a diagnosis that taking low dose antibiotics encouraged bacterial overgrowth in the stomach and intestines (SIBO). This lead to leaking gut and then toxins entered her body, causing inflammatory issues. Argentyn 23 is a non-toxic form of Colloidal Silver (that kills this bacteria). You can get this online but I would urged you to be tested as there is a 24 hour test for bacterial overgrowth. Leaky Gut causes so many health issues that do not seem to be related. Dr. John Pagano studied the Edgar Cayce readings and he was able to cure many health issues related to this. I think his remedies – well, some are old and outdated. A good health practitioner can do something more current. A doctor in Boston swears by Argentyn 23 but I do not know the dosage.

    1. Planets in the 12th House do not make you emotional BUT Neptune in the 12th makes you extremely sensitive to subtle vibrations. You need protection — carrying a nice crystal in your pocket when going out expands your energy field. High John the Conqueror oil is a powerful protector. I cannot think of others right now. Some Flower essences help but I do not know which ones. The most powerful for me was High John Oil but the man who made it has either retired or passed away. 12th House need cannot be “ON” 24/7 and you need to retreat to recharge your batteries. Do not stay alone too long. Go to the 6th and engage in working activities that you enjoy, that are not draining. Since I do not know your chart, I cannot advise any more.

  3. Where do I go if I have a stelliums in my 12th and 6th houses? It’s interesting that you mentioned Lyndon B. Johnson, he is/was my 5th cousin. 12th- Sun in Tau, Mer in Tau, Chiron in Pis, Saturn in Pis. And 6th- Uranus in Vir, Mars in Vir, Pluto in Vir, Neptune in Scorp. Thank you for this video, it helps me figure out what’s coming in my life. It’s been a wild ride so far.

    1. Kimberly, this is a difficult pattern to resolve. Actually, I do not mind oppositions because they allow you choices. You may find yourself swinging back and forth — “hyper-engaged” with work, then swinging back into the reclusive 12th. You actually need this pendulum life style. With Uranus and Pluto in the 6th House, you need to work independently from others as you are sensitive (Neptune) to vibrations in the workplace. This conjunction is connected with reform, rehabilitation and even holistic health activities.

  4. Hello Lynn. I discovered your website today and have enjoyed your writing and knowledge. I do not have a stellium but I do have three planets in 12th house Sagittarius. I have Uranus Retrograde conjunct Jupiter Retrograde and Neptune Retrograde, the South Node and the Galactic Center all conjunct each other. 29th degree Pisces Moon in my third house square Neptune and south node. I feel like this is an important part of my chart. Can you share some thoughts on how you would interpret these placements?

    1. Caesar, it is impossible for me to visualize when people say “this planet is here; that planet is there.” The Moon at 29 degrees squaring Neptune tells me that, when your emotions become intense (reaching a point of critical mass), you tune out and emotionally disappear. Intimacy is a problem but you hae to work with this. I have similar aspects. When I actually lived with someone, he was on the 3rd floor and I was on the 1st floor. I have been in another relationship for almost 30 years. For the first time, he is moving in with me but he will be on the 2nd floor and I will still be on the 1st floor.

  5. I find your written articles fascinating and love your approach to the intercepted one, as my daughter and I both have Virgo/Pisces intercepted. I’ll be buying those cells salts.

    For the stellium I have a few questions I hope you can answer. I relate most to the placidus, but when used my Leo stellium is cut in half into the 6th/7th houses. In whole sign houses it’s in the 7th.

    I have Venus and Mercury in the 6th and sun and Mars in the 7th, all conjunct within 6° and my DC is the Leo cusp.

    Is it possible to have zodiac stelliums and not just house ones? I know so many astrologers have different opinions on stelliums. I also thought to have a stellium you would need 4 or more luminaries and personal planets to be accurate. However if you had luminaries in that placement you would need 3 personal planets to be considered as one.

    I am very much an Aquarius, just as much as I feel my Leo. Learning to live with those parts working together, rather than one extreme to the other.

    Would love your opinions on these questions. Thank you so much!

    1. First, you only use the cell salts if you have the health issues associated with the salts of the signs OR if a planets such as Mars is transiting the intercepted sign.
      Second, I only use Placidius. Whole House was developed because in former times these Houses had to be calculated with Trigonometry. The potential for error in calculations was very common so Whole House made it easy
      just as Cosmobiology without an Houses made it even easier.
      You are absolutely correct — you can have a Stellium by House and a Stellium by Sign. This makes the Sign more prominent in your life. It does link the two Houses together — 6th House service can be combined with 7th House consultations.
      You do not have to have personal planets in the Stellium to make it a Stellium but I do think that Stellium would be more powerful and possibly more beneficial.

  6. Hello Lynn,
    I haven’t been into astrology for many years now, but got curious recently since 2020 seems to be a beneficial year for me, to the point I feel guilty because the whole world is in despair.
    I wondered what the link with my chart might be and I found your website. I have a stellium in the 11th house (Venus, Sun and Chiron in Mars, and Jupiter and Mercurius in Taurus). Of those, the three ones in Aries are intercepted. In the opposite 5th house I have 3 planets (Pluto and Moon in Libra, and Uranus in Scorpio). Pluto and Moon are also intercepted. All these 8 planets form a square with Mars in Cancer in the 1st house and Saturn in the 2nd house, also in Cancer. As said, 2020 has been beneficial to me. I got laid off due to the pandemic, but used my time to create an own creative business, did many creative side projects, renovated our summer house with my spouse, planted 200 trees and shrubs, connected with nature, and a couple of months ago I found a new job that I love. I am much interested in life stories and like to observe people; and although I like being around people and I am happy I have to go to the office, I am even happier not having to deal with social events (I totally shut down in groups), and have lunch alone at my desk. I guess the current alignments must work well with who I am. Would love to have your opinion on these. Thanks a lot!

    1. Somehow my post did not show up but I praise your spiritual growth in handling the Pluto transit and to see the wisdom in the lesson that Pluto had to teach you. Not everyone is so enlightened. Some may have gotten very ill with this transit or found themselves in a bad place without a light at the end of the tunnel. But, some people like yourself can overcome fear (Mars in Cancer – I have Saturn there and I still battle fears). Your lesson will hopefully inspire others to go with the flow of Pluto.

  7. Hi Lynn,
    Thanks for the informative post. I have 4 planets sun mercury Saturn and jupiter in 6th house.
    I have severe detachment and trying to find my purpose of life. Does this stallium tells about it or any suggestions that can help. I am Aries ascendant.

    1. It is difficult to answer without knowing your complete chart. You do have a true Stellium with 4 planets. The 6th House is associated with health practices. I have a friend with a 6th House Stellium and she has been an acupuncturist since the 1980s! HOWEVER, with a Stellium, you need to go to the 12th House periodically, retreat and get away and recharge your “batteries.” You tend to become hyper-engaged with the Stellium House. If you work too hard, become to engaged with work, you can become ill.

      1. Thanks Lynn for your precious time on my post.
        If you get chance to see my birth chart I am sharing the details:
        DOB: 19 Sep 1981
        Time: 8:30 pm
        Place of birth: [City: Hyderabad, State: Telangana, Country: India]

  8. Hi Lynn I enjoyed this write up very much. I am just beginning my journey learning astrology.
    In my own chart I have a double stellium. 1st house Aquarius(Venus Mars Saturn). 12th house Capricorn(Neptune Uranus north node). I’m realizing now the north node might not make the 12th house a full stellium.

    Sometimes it feels like my brain is on fire, my mood swings can be quite quick, the part you wrote about Aquarius stellium being a different person from day to day resonated. Anything you can suggest with these placements would be lovely. Thank you.

    1. First, you do not have any Stelliums. In former times, a Stellium was always 4 planets in a sign or in a House. Only in recent times do the young astrologers include only 3 planets. I have 3 planets in my 10th House and, after 60 years of researching astrology (I started in high school but I am s till old), they do NOT act like a Stellium . No, I never use a Node as a point in a chart pattern because it is not an object.
      Uranus and Neptune in the 12th denote repressed energies — very powerful energies. It is essential that you manifest these planets in your daily life — psychic and intuitive powers (especially with a planet in each of the Water Houses denotes a strong connection with multi-dimensional realities. If you eliminate all of the Objects of Transformation (such as Transpluto in Leo in the 7th – see 2 articles on my website), Jupiter is a Singleton and the Handle of a Bucket. When Patterns were develop about 8 years ago, these objects were unknown. This just needs to be used — healing arts are supported or financial counseling. It is also powerful because it is the Apex of a Wide Yod. Using Transpluto at 22 Leo, you have a Fixed Cross. Detoxing and oxygenating the blood (deep breathing) will be an essential technique. There are many patterns in the chart but too many to address here.

  9. This is a very beautiful and insightful article. I have a stellium of 8 planets (Mercury, Mars, Neptune, Uranus, North Node, Lilith, Sun and Saturn) all falling into the 1st house (with the asc point that makes 9 aspects over there). These are spread out across Capricorn and Aquarius. It can be overwhelming at times, especially these days with all those transits in Capricorn and Aquarius. However, I can testify that what helped me throughout 2020 to temper down all the energies from the 1st house, was indeed focusing on others, for example doing astrological readings, counselling or maintaining relationships amongst groups. Currently also experiencing the Saturn return, which culminates everything after he passed/touched each of the other planets (Saturn being the last planet from the stellium). In a way it can feel exciting to have all those energies to work with, but probably your point on compromising your health when too much energy is being consumed at once, made me wanna slow down a bit.
    Keep on writing inspiring content like this.
    Thanks! 😄

    1. You did an excellent job using your 1st House Stellium correctly. I will only add that I never use Lilith or the Nodes. There are 4 Liliths but the one most commonly used is not an object but an apogee point and the Nodes are not objects either. But you still have a Stellium!! I have a weak Saturn in Cancer and my 1st Saturn Return only had me socialize more (11th House) because I was so absorbed in astrology. The 2nd Return was not too pleasant as I need to learn about boundaries — and this may be your lesson with that Neptune in the Stellium. Learning to say NO is a healthy lesson for all. Going too far into the 7th and being helpful can sap all of your energies (as it did for me). With my 2nd Return, I developed the Epstein-Barr Virus and for 2 years I had to take care of myself rather than others.

  10. Hi Lynn,
    what does it mean if I have stelliums in both the 10th house and 8th house? I’m a cancer asc with Aries sun. Sun, mercury, Saturn, and mars are located in the tenth house, and venus, uranus, moon are located in the eighth house, aquarius. It feels overwhelming dealing with the unknown and the death issues, throughout my life I had many ups and downs in my life and it never seems to stop. Chiron both squares the moon and venus which is in the 5th house. I’m really curious about this and especially this one’s karmic side and can’t find answers for this. Do you think I should focus on the opposite houses like the 2nd and 4th? Thanks. I love your writings!

    1. If you read the title of the article, it takes 4 planets to make a Stellium. It is only in very recent times have young astrologers narrowed it to 3 planets but this does not work with my interpretation. I have 3 planets in the 10th and it definitely does NOT act like a Stellium. But you do have a Stellium in the 10th House. This means that, while there is a focus upon the career and achievement, so many planets in the 10th will cause issues with authority figures. In going to the 4th, you would be better off self-employed, working out of your own space (the 4th House also rules the place in which we work and our extended family there).
      Three planets in the 8th must really seem like the intensity of a Stellium because the 8th House is the most obsessive House in a chart. You actually NEED interests outside of yourself to obsess on. It is a powerful healing and research House — physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, economic and even technological.

      1. Thanks a lot, but you also mentioned above that 4+ planets in a house or a sign means stellium and even though Uranus is in the 7th house, it’s still in Aquarius with the other three planets so I guess this also means a house stellium but maybe I should interpret them under an Aquarius stellium? Are those planets in the 10th house or even an Aquarius stellium indicators for career choosing? Thanks!

  11. Hi,

    I’m such a fan and hoping you can help me understand by the opposition.
    I have my Sun in 1st house of Sagittarius, but also in the first house are Moon, Mercury, Venus, Saturn, and Uranus.
    With this type of Stellium, I’m trying to understand how I should interpret and focus on the opposition, especially since that is committed relationships (house 7)

    1. Ali, I cannot tell you more than in the article. With a large stellium in the 1st House, it can be overwhelming if focusing upon yourself. Any activity that allows you to work with others — a team, coach, clients, consultant, the public and public service (such as the example of President Johnson). Since I do not know your chart, I can only give general interpretations.

  12. im a rising libra with sun, mercury, venus, Pluto all in my 1st house and nothing across the way in aries. I joke that I’m at my ‘best self’ when married! My adhd seems to mellow out significantly and the success of the partnership becomes more focused, but ive been divorced twice now! I’ve been very publically transformed by these marriages, the collapse of the last one even led to a spontaneous kundalini awakening, coinciding with the birth of our only child. Being single though for five years now, I’m trying to figure out how I’d even incorporate these energies into a successful relationship, lol. I feel slightly doomed because when I do focus on the empty 7th house the partnerships fall apart! They’ve never been bad, abusive, or negative either, it’s like the end appears and I just move on. Perhaps it’s the empty aries 7th that allows me to go so easily? I certainly feel compelled to have a partnership, eventhough I’m content in my singledom(not for lack of suitors either! even @my age). I have a 4th capricorn moon, maybe that square negates some of the intensity of that libra stellium? It’s difficult to understand how it plays out for me cause it’s almost like the best of and the worst of(minus abusive/ bad relationships but I think that’s been avoidable due to having sooo many options and no problem leaving if I notice a red flag, which mars in leo helps with). I’m new to astrology but I think this stellium has probably run my life and my 5 years of ZERO relationships(save for short random unemotional flings) is hopefully helping me subconsciously understand it! I have a friend that wants to go into a business partnership together and I’ve been very weary of my ability to partner-up with her. If I can’t make it work in my personal relationships…I’d hate to lose such a good friend and collaborator too, lol! Successfully focusing on the opposite house makes me think I might need to dig deeper into an empty aries 7th, cause I’m not sure I’m not sure I’m doing it right! lol

    1. Thank you for sharing. Whenever there are planets in the 1st, the individual wants relationships to be on one’s own terms. They can share but because they want to share, not because it is demanded. I know many people with the Libra Stellium in the 1st House. One belongs to Mossad (leadership) and one is a politician in a powerful role. I have never married but I have had 2 long term relationships. They lived with me but I put them on the upper level so that I have may space — a his and hers Duplex joined house would also work.
