Re: My father?
Hi GSR, well if we take the traditional ruler for the father, then that is the 4th house ruler Mars. He is in your 3rd trine Pluto in the 11th.
That 11th is the 8th of your father and Pluto is modern ruler of the 8th house of death. This shows a connection with Mars, Pluto and your dads 8th house.
Sun is also a signifier of the father. Sun squares Mars, modern ruler of Scorpio = 8th sign. Mars is in your 3rd of transport, communication and auto's belong there.
Should we take the 10th house as the father (modern view) then Venus rules him. His 8th house counted from there is coincidentally also ruled by Venus, so father and house of death are the same here as well. Venus opposes Uranus (sudden) and Saturn(also death) and sesquiquadrates Pluto.
I think your mother could be right but this is a very difficult question to answer and actually would be better for a horary question. Why not try that and see what a horary chart would say. Take the same time as when you asked this question which is 11.58 on the 31st of October. Take the place where you were at the time of the question. Question is probably: is my father really dead? or "is my mother telling me the truth?". Something like that. Take the question that was at the back of your head when you posted this thread.
