View Full Version : Five Squares To the Sun in the 6th house- Transits
08-26-2007, 11:42 PM
During this lunar eclipse on August 28th I will be experiencing transits that will be causing 5 squares to my natal Taurus sun in the 6th house. I am really worried that this means heath issues. I would greatly appreciate some review to ease my worry. Thank-you in advance for your help.
Many kind wishes--

Hello Deana, I think you have to look at where that Eclipse falls in your Natal chart first of all. I am a Taurus as well, Sun 14°, and I have not even looked at this (I actually never look at my own chart because I am inclined to see things more positive than they really are, opposed to so many others who always look at the negative side of things. You have to take many things in account before concluding that your health is going to be affected. Maybe it is something totally different, like an issue with your collegues at work. Some squares can be very positive and give you a push to do something, stopping you from procastination. 6th house is related to work, daily work, service to others (maybe you have to help out more than normally and not really liking it, depending on which planet squares your Sun.
You had a pre-natal Solar Eclipse in your 6th house (just before you were born), indeed showing that the degree, 18 Taurus, will always remain a sensitive point in your chart and I can imagine that you are worried about your health as the ruler of the 6th , Venus is in the 8th, squaring Mars and Saturn.The Lunar Eclipse falls in your 3rd house and this will activate that part of your chart. This has to do with the lower mind, communication in general and siblings, neighbors, traffic, cars, writing etc. The conjunction of an Eclipse is always the most important aspect to consider. This Eclipse does not conjunct anything in your 3rd. The opposition is the second most important. This Eclipse does oppose your POF in the 9th. I dont know if that is relevant thought, because it is a point and therefore cannot be activated by another planet. The Eclipse is too far from opposition to Pluto or Moon.
Other aspects can be considered but they are very much subsidiary to the conjunction. The orbs should be kept within 2° so in both the squares towards the Ascendant and sextile to your Mercury, the orb is already waning and not strong anymore. In case of a Full Moon (Lunar Eclipse) the house polarity is emphasized and especially when it falls in the Angles. This is not the case in your chart with this Eclipse. The full Moon can be seen as a point of culmination, time of high power and productivity, a culmination of achievement.
A full Moon or Eclipse can be favorable if the current transits are also good. Also, it is said that the effect of an eclips usually is not felt immediately but rather around a year or even years later, when another planet, susually Mars or Saturn, transits the same degree. In your case SAturn is going to oppose by transit this sensitive point at 4° Pisces, starting at October 7. At the same time Uranus is transiting towards the cusp of your 4th house where it will be exactly conjuncting the cusp for the 1st time on the 22nd of April 2008. Both Saturn and Uranus will be busy in the 9th and the 3rd/4th house, so I guess you can expect some difficulties and changes in these areas affecting you (the Ascendant) because both are squaring your Ascendant (Saturn more exact, Uranus already passed the square but is still square in sign). Uranus will at the same time oppose natal Uranus, so I can imagine that both in the private as well as in the public sphere, things will undergo change considerably. And again, Uranus is ruler of the 3rd of siblings, lower mind, dont forget that. The Eclipse will affect that part of the chart. Your health could be affected with Saturn squaring the Ascendant, but it is at the same time trining your Mercury and eventually your Sun in the 6th. I think it will work out more as you feeling exhausted or less powered, than that you will fall ill. Jupiter, also transits own sign in your 1st house, not aspecting anything at the moment. Good for health.
What are the squares you are talking about? Lets look at trans. Uranus. That one is sextiling your Sun in the 6th. Progressed Moon in the 3rd also sextiling your Sun in Taurus in 6. Progr. Moon trines your Neptune, ruler 4. Only progressed Venus squares your Sun and Venus is not nasty. It can bring a bit of tension between you and friends or collegues at work if anything or makes you worrying even more about health issues than you already are inclined to do with Venus in the 8th!.The Square from Saturn is outgoing and besides that Saturn is moving into a sign aking to him and your Sun, taking the sharp edges off the square. Trans.Pluto makes an inconjunct to your Sun, traditionally an aspect to do with health. This could be maybe a temporary health problem, but in your natal chart the Sun and Pluto are trine to one another so this inconjunct I do not see as serious at all. Pluto could do some transformation work on your psyche which will only serve you (natal trine). You could go through a psychological rebirth of some sorts and because it is a health aspect it could be necessary to undergo this in order to improve your health in general.The only aspect that is difficult is the square from Neptune to your Sun, because in your natal chart there exists an opposition 6-12 between Sun and Neptune. This is related to hospitals and illness as you know. If your father still lives, this could also mean a problem with him or, if you are married, with your husband. Progr. Merc., ruler 7 is trining Neptune in the 12th, so thêre is a connection with your partner(husband) and the 12th.
This square from Neptune to Sun is really bothering as I have had it for a while now and it is finally getting better. I have been confused or really not very focussed for a long time due to all sorts of family affairs and just a lot of restless circumstances. So you could also feel quite "out of it" at times, with Neptune in the 3rd especially of course. Just go with the flow and try to stay focussed.. It will pass eventually. Neptune is co-ruler of your Ascendant so that also could show self-deception or self-undoing.
The Eclipse falls at 4°46' in Pisces, which is in your 3rd house. It trines the ruler of your 6th house, Venus and it Sextiles your Mercury in the 6th. It is more likely that there could be something happening to one of your siblings as Progressed Mars is squaring Uranus, ruler of the 3rd. (also you should take care in traffick, drive carefully, take extra care). Also keep in mind that natally, there is NO aspect between Mars and Uranus în the natal chart, so a repeating of this aspect is not there.
Progressed Mercury (ruler MC) is sextiling exactly your MC and Progr.Saturn, ruler of your 2nd house of income is conjunct Regulus, Star of honor. On top of that, the Lunar Eclipse is exactly trining your progressed Sun at 4° in Cancer in the 8th!! And your progressed MC is also at 4°, in Scorpio, and therefore forming a grand trine between your Progressed Sun and the point of Lunar Eclipse !Good transits accompanying an Eclipse make the effect of Eclipses beneficial. Could it be that you are getting a promotion at work or maybe salary increase? To me everything looks very promising. What do you think now? Best of luck, Star.

Wow, you are using very wide orbs... I usually stick to transit orbs of 50% of what natal orbs would be, as transits tend to be far more temporal than natal aspects. When analyzing eclipse transits, I'm even more picky, looking at only the close connections, aside from the eclipse itself, which I afford a wider-than-normal orb due to its power.
All said, I wouldn't consider any of the squares much - The closest is from Saturn, and even that is almost 4 degrees of orb, and it is a waning orb - the exact aspect was a full month (to the day) before the eclipse. The next closest is from Neptune, at over 5 degrees, and will not perfect until March of 2009. The others are all over 6 degrees, pretty much not even a consideration.
The eclipse falls in your 3rd/9th house axis, giving this lunar eclipse a focus on the mental domain. Appropriate for a Mercury-ruled eclipse. This eclipse doesn't seem to form any highly potent connections, nothing striking atleast.
The next eclipse, the solar eclipse of Sept 11 2007, is far more important for you, as it falls at the same degree as your Pluto. Before you jump to the conclusion that Pluto is a monster and assume the worst from the eclipse, realize that Pluto does have a good side, and is the ultimate force for regeneration and self-transcendence.
I would say that the lunar eclipse, which usually lead to endings of things, will help you put to rest old mental constructs and ways of thinking. Realize that Pluto has much to do with human psychology and underlying patterns of the deeper mind. The lunar eclipse helping to put to rest old mental constructs will help clear the path for the solar eclipse, connected to Plutonian transformations, and these often involve reshaping our own psychology... how the mind functions. Pluto always starts with a good housecleaning, one way or another :)

This is incredible information. Thank-you both so very much for your wonderful insightfulness. You have relieved much worry for me.
I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder. ~G.K. Chesterton

Wow, you are using very wide orbs
Hi Unu! Do I?? In one of Stephen Arroyos's book he wrote that the orb for an Eclipse should be withing 2° and for other transits I use 5° before and 5° after the exact moment of impact. Many transits you start feeling only after the conjunction with the Angle or other planet. For oppositions I always take between 6 and 8, depending on the ingoing or outgoing and only for the Sun and Moon I take up to 10, but also take less when it is waning. For inconjuncts and minor aspects I take between 1 and 2°. (like inconjuncts and semi-sextiles. Especially with a soft aspect, the orb, IMO should be tighter in order to notice anything at all. I personally noticed transiting Pluto going over my Ascendant already at around 6 degrees before it hit the Ascendant and many more after it passed the Ascendant. I think that some people are far more sensitive to certain transits due to the set-up of their chart, then others. Pluto is ruler of my Ascenant, so I guess I felt it longer and stronger than someone else with Pluto not being so important in the chart. So I calculate this possibility in and therefore stick to the 5° orb.

Agreed, Starlink :) I meant Deanna was, since the squares she was talking about are all quite wide... I should been more specific, my bad :)
Only one was under 5 degrees, that of Saturn, which was almost 4 degrees waning, with the exact hit a full month ago.
The eclipse is pretty here.. Total shortly :D

Ah I see, no prob.! I am glad you also see no threads coming up.

This is very well formulated, could not have said it any better!
It coincides with what I wrote as well:
in your natal chart the Sun and Pluto are trine to one another so this inconjunct I do not see as serious at all. Pluto could do some transformation work on your psyche which will only serve you.
