A tenant (or potential tenant) is usually signified by 6 ruler. In this case, you could use 7 ruler because the person is not strictly speaking your tenant yet. But you'll see that Saturn rules 6 and 7th Houses so it doesn't matter.
- I looked at the 7th the house. It's good to know this as now that I'm a landlord, I now know the difference when asking a question regarding this matter. Thank you for explaining this to me.
I don't know why you think all the planets are peregrine???? Mars is exalted in Capricorn and Saturn is also exalted in Libra. Peregrine means lacking in essential dignity and certainly has the effect you described - "lost and wandering"
- You are right about this. I somehow overlooked it when reviewing the Ptolemy tables and remember concentrating on finding if they had dignity by term or face (neither does), but yes, what a major oversight on my end. I blame Mercury retrograde
Mercury also applies to conjunct Mars (Moon's dispositor - you).
- Does it apply? I thought it was separating, or am I missing something?
Mercury is peregrine though - not dignified at 2deg Cap - so we can't say that the dog is as happily received or welcome as the tenant herself. Fair enough, I'd say.
-Yes, I love pets, but now when I don't know the nature of them and in a rental, all I can think about is how much damage they can do.
How to judge if the tenant is likely to be a "good" tenant? Saturn, her significator, is Exalted in Libra - this is the way I would judge whether or not to take a chance with her, viz whether or not the planet signifying her is in good condition. Here, Saturn is rather elevated in dignity and so if she says she has the dog under good control, well then, you can believe her. But common sense comes into it as well - if what she claims sounds as if it's a bit over the top, then that's the Exaltation - take it with a grain of salt before you make your final decision. That's how I'd play it, anyway! At the same time, Saturn is accidentally debilitated being in a cadent House - which takes some (a little) of the gloss off its exalted condition.
By the way, Regulus is a help, not a hindrance, and being as positive ("success") as it is and close to the 2nd cusp here, you should regard it as a big help in connection with your finances. (See Ebertin-Hoffman for summaries of Fixed Stars and their meanings, published by the AFA).
- Yes, I should have clarified. I have read on this star on the fixed star list and it has been known to be a regal one. I think the way I wrote everything made it seem like it was bunched with the rest of the negative aspects.
Just noticed, too, that the North Node (another positive influence) is exactly conjunct Mercury, the dog, so whilst he might bark it won't be as long or as loud as you have at first feared! Hope that helps.
-This is a positive sign! This is good to know.
Unfortunately this tenant bailed out and stopped contacting me so now I've found another one and they've signed an agreement to lease, however, they are very high maintenance and are making demands before they move in. They have stellar credit and the background checks came in clear so they seem to be fiscally responsible. I will be doing a new chart on them when they move in to see if they will give me trouble or not. I hope the latter is the case. Thank you for your reply, as it was informative and something I can apply in my future attempts to read my own charts.
