View Full Version : Greece Again?
06-28-2007, 10:36 PM
I have yet another opportunity to go to greece for an archaeological research project for 3 wks (in late august and early september). I recently got back from one (on a different island - and it was a good experience).
But I naturally have reservations about going back so soon again
so my question is; should I participate in this project? (will it be a positive experience?)

I'm thinking this is a 6th house matter and maybe 9th house, since it is travel, but I'd also be working there - or maybe the 6th from the 9th? (so 2nd hoouse matter?) (work in a foreign country). I would love some help to interpret this;

I'm glad you took the last opportunity to go. You must not be a Sagittarius. When would a Sadge EVER have reservations about travelling somewhere again at short notice, I ask? :p
Your question will be strictly 9th and perhaps 10th. The 6th should not generally be used as it rules things like 'servants' and 'builders'. It can be used sometimes in situations where things are very difficult to bring to fruition (e.g. hard labour) but for career-work queries, use the 10th. If you are getting *paid*, you can then use the 11th (the money-that-belongs-to-the-boss-which-you-earn). But I don't think this is necessarily a monetary question, is it? Look for receptions between you (1st house) and the 9th house (Greece-trip-study). Check to see what the Moon is doing.
I'll take a peek myself at some point, but this should give you a good start.

Hi again AG :)
I'm technically a 'volunteer' for this project, so I'm not getting paid. Also, my natal sun is in capricorn, so I'm definitely more reserved and cautious about everything ;)!
Looking at the chart with your pointers, I noticed the ruler of the 9th, the sun, isn't making any aspects to me (jupiter and moon in 1st). Meanwhile, the ruler of the 9th is conj ruler of the 10th which is retrograde...so is that a bad sign? Also, is mercury combust...another no? And both planets are in cancer, which rules the moon (me), so this may reinforce the above message? Plus, the 7th-1st dynamic is a conflicted one (opposition).
But planets in the 9th aspect me (1st) with a weak trine - venus conj saturn (ruler of 6th and 11th conj ruler of 2nd and 3rd)
So from what I can tell, this is not a well-supported trip?
thanks again :) - Seraphina

I'll give you a brief go-around; I have to leave soon, but I'll explain more fully tomorrow, if I'm able.
1. Jupiter Rx simply means that you are 'returning' to something you've done before.
2. The Moon has passed its conjunction to you, but applies immediately by trine to Venus, the lesser benefic. Venus in this case rules the 11th and 6th, as you pointed out. I reckon the 6th works for 'volunteering', as it's a type of service. In any case, it rules the 11th. You'll have a good time. Venus is conjuncting Saturn, which rules your 2nd/3rd. I'm wondering: is money a concern for you, e.g. paying for this trip? You're going to have to work *hard* with Saturn there; but in archaeology one is always working hard when not drinking beer. I wouldn't consider it a hindrance since the Moon collects the light of Venus and carries it to Saturn in a friendly trine.
3. 9th ruler, the Sun, is placed with *cazimi* Mercury (MUCH different from combust!!) in the 8th. Both the Sun and Mercury exalt Jupiter. I wonder why they are placed in the secretive 8th? In any case, between the exaltation and the cazimi Mercury, this trip is likely to be quite 'good for' you. They may be placed in the 8th because you are worrying about going.
4. My opinion? I think you'll go, and I think you'll benefit both by enjoying it (Venus) and improving your career chances immensely (cazimi Mercury). Mercury Rx again indicates a 'going back' to something, which is what you are considering doing. It has passed its conjunction with the Sun and moves away from cazimi, which whispers that this is one of those 'take the chance or lose it' type situations.
Go for it, say I.
