Re: Extreme Aqua

Iím so accustomed to the old way of being
Hi Matthew,
It's said that the signs form character and the houses the circumstances of life in which it works.
If this is true characterwise, you are still the same person inside that you have always been, approaching and dealing with situations in the same manner as you have always done. In 2 hours no aspects change. Even Moon is still the focus of the T-square.

some input to kickstart some much-needed new perceptions
What is often observed (from books!!) is that sign/planet/house are taken as meaning the same thing; you know the style - Mars=Aries=!st house, etc.etc.
Are you saying that your long supposed Pisces rising made you look at the world through Pisces eyes, OR could it be the character of a trad. Jupiter or modern Neptune, as rulers of the sign, that coloured your perception of it?
If, perhaps, you are/were susceptible to physical complaints, did you consider it the result of 1st-6th house circumstances (Pisces and Leo), or did it have anything to do with how the character of a Sun square Neptune acted?
Were the reactional effect of Moon-Neptune in Scorpio really an 8th house situation, or was it the character of how a Sun-Venus quincunx Pluto approached any situation in which the individual is/was involved?

I'm a WW2 babe when Double Summer Time was in force. The first chart made through an incorrectly computed programme that failed to take this into account was an hour out. My first astrology teacher didn't think it was 'me', yet I 'lived' with its reasoning for more than a year until a technical training book on time zones/house systems proved its inaccuracy. What a relief (to both of us!) to lose that large 8th house input, yet which still remained because it turned out to be the effects of very close personal planets aspects to Pluto in my character's perception of a situation.

Can you follow what I mean?

You now have Taurus rising based upon the physically tangible, so different to the physically intangible Pisces. Does it really make any difference when Venus square Neptune STILL denotes how you perceive situations, yet its the houses (position and rulership) that bring about the circumstances through which they have effect?

You may find there are important situations occuring with the transits of Saturn and Pluto across the M.C.-I.S axes, and tr. Uranus squaring Saturn and tr. Neptune due to semi-square Saturn in Aquarius, both from the 12th house.
Out with the old, in with the renewed?
