I'm looking to learn about placements better, namely, how the aspects
and sign/house positions render the planet, it's potential, it's natal power etc.
I'll post my chat below, though a few times it's been unsuccessful so please bear with me in the event of a problem.
OK, the two placings I'm trying to understand better are my natal Mars and Jupiter. My natal Mars is ruler of Sun and is placed in the 11th of Gemini. The problem is, the aspects are few here, and I'm not sure does that place extra emphasis on them or simply highlight it's lack of contact? Mars has a semi-square with the Sun in the 10th of Aries, a sextile with Jupiter in the 10th of Aries (5degrees), and a bi-quintile with Neptune in the 6th house. So there is a weak positive aspect at 5 degrees orb, and two minor aspects, one negative and one positve. How do I look at this? Beyond that I'm not sure.
The second planet is Jupiter in the 10th of Aries. I'm concerned, because I've heard many stories about a fall from grace from a 10 Jupiter, and I'm not sure if Jupiter is negative or neutral, so I'm interested in learning more. So Jupiter has that sextile from Mars who is in the 11th of Gemini (5degreees), a square with Neptune in the 6th of Capricorn (1 degree), inconjunction with 5th Scorpio Pluto, and a conjunction with the true node. So, a weak confirmation from the ruler of the sign he's in, good, a square from Neptune indicating great ideas playing out in the mind but not very well applied, perhaps dreaming too much, yet Neptune is all dried up and serious in Capricorn, so perhaps not so lethal? I've little info on the inconjunction with Pluto, though I've read it means I'm impatient with expansion, and yes I am, but is that really a danger? And a conjunction with the north node, with indications of understanding cultural values etc. but perhaps a hasty rise in wealth and through life. So, is Jupiter neg, pos or netural?
Any comments, info, debate would be very welcome!
