Re: What house rules sex?

The 8th House rules sex. You just look at the natal ruler, plus Mars and Pluto and any planets that happen to be in the 8th and you'll know everything you need to know.

That includes people's attitudes toward sex, the importance it plays in their life, their sex drive, sex appeal, whether they're prudish or open to experimentation, whether it's a positive influence or negative influence, the level of intimacy, loving or violent, and even if they'll die because of it (check out charts of those who died from auto-erotic asphyxiation).

Re: What house rules sex?

I can see how one might potentially think of the 5th since that house indeed deals with "love affairs", but when it comes to the act of sex, that is my fullest house's domain, the 8th .

What does my chart say about me? Curious...

My 8th house is ruled by the Sun which is in the 8th. I have Sun/Merc in the 8th in Leo.
I have Mars in Taurus in the 5th (along with the Moon)
I have Pluto in Libra in the 9th.

Re: What house rules sex?

BobZemco, you mentioned to look at Mars and Pluto. Can you possibly imagine how much sexual energy you would have with Mars opposite Pluto as the axis of a Boomerang?

Speaking of Mars and Pluto, I forgot to add mine;

Mars in Taurus in the 9th opp Pluto in Scorpio in the 3rd

Well, I don't believe it has nothing to do with sex, obviously when you have a dating relationship/love affair type deal going on, you probably have sexual chemistry and might possibly act on those urges, but I voted for just the 8th because that is the house that deals with the act of sex; personally, I don't think the 5th has to do specifically with that, sure you can have sex when dating someone/whatever, but if you want to narrow it down to just sex then it's the 8th.

Plus, I think the 5th is more along the lines of the idea of two people possibly dating/having some sort of a love affair instead of the idea that it's the house where one of the main focuses is the act of sex.

Houses can have overlapping functions, so technically the 5th and 8th could possibly *in theory* overlap in that each could indicate sexual relations, but the 5th is not known as The House of Sex, like I said, it focuses on more along the idea of romantic affairs instead of focusing on in big, bold letters (ha) sex.

Also, if you want to get technical, the 5th is the house of creativity as well and *smirks* people can get very *creative* in the bedroom; I personally have an empty 5th house (eh, I have a Vertex there), but I am very "creative" in bed; so yes, if you want to get nitty gritty- you can say that sex is a creative act, which it is, but in descriptions of the various houses, it does not say the 5th is Love Affairs/Sexual Creativity. I personally think of the 5th house's creativity in terms of writing, music, acting, drawing/painting, etc.

In another example, both the 5th and the 7th can deal with some sort of relationship, but the 7th is generally thought of as the one with the serious partnership type relations (ie, marriage) and the 5th is generally thought of in more casual, less serious terms (ie, dating).

So in conclusion, the 8th rules sex/transformations/rebirth/death/regenerations and the 5th rules love affairs/creativity.

Re: What house rules sex?

That's getting real intersting nejispirit. Maybe all the houses could represent some aspect of sex. Spiritual sex in the 9th? Sleeping with the boss in the 10th? It could go on and on.

Heh, well typically we don't necessarily think of the 9th or 10th as houses where we ponder upon things like this

No, you are not the only one suffering in this regards; I thought you were merely being a smart aleck :38:

Other than the obvious, how would *your* Mars come into play ? (For instance, what sort of special aspects does it have, or how does it play a role in big configurations in your chart?)

I am a smart aleck to start with.

My Mars is anoretic (out of control) in the 8th house. It's on a very Marsy star called Regulus, and an asteroid called Randi. It also is semisextile to Uranus, quincunx to Chiron and trine to Part of Fortune.

I also feel I have some link to Pan, chasing nymphs around the forrest.

Heh, well I'm trying to remember, you are a Virgo correct? (I believe you have at least one big Virgo planet in you); all the Virgos I have ever known have been smart alecks

Regulus, well that went over my head as I am not too familiar with fixed stars, but that's interesting, the quincunx to Chiron.

This REGULUS does not at all sit well with periods of celibacy.

People like us with a strong Mars have to be very careful, especially when young. If we don't get that energy out of our body safely, well, you know. We hurt ourself or some one close to us.

As an example: I was not expressing my Mars very well and it built up in my body. It worked out subconsciously and due to some karma (quincunx) I nearly killed (Chiron) my brother (3rd house).

Now I get the energy out by fully expressing my Mars. It p-sses a lot of people off but hopefully I won't kill any family or friends.

I know you're working your's out. Good to see. Mars at your reaction point opposite Pluto. I can't wait to see you fully use that energy. We have seen how quickly you have evolved (Pluto) in such a short time.

You're a powerful Marsy girl. Just what I like.

Heh, yeah I know I'm powerful and such ; Someone else told me something similiar the other day somewhere else, but he was being rather creepy about it.

We do have to be careful, especially when there are little or no ways to get this energy out- I need to find a new physical therapist soon or else I might loose it completely.

This year I have punched too many walls and messed up my knuckles too many times with my surges of anger, I've come to control it better but it is a difficult task indeed.

My Regulus is right over my empty 12th house (where Leo meets Virgo), I can't tell what exactly degree it is but it seems it would have a great influence on my ascendant.

On the Ascendant, it will give a courageous and frank character, especially if in conjunction with the Sun, Moon, Jupiter or Mercury.


If so, I know that I can be rather frank and definitely courageous, but I do not have conj with it for my Sun, Moon, Jupiter or Mercury.

Yeah, I just glanced at your natal, Aquarius indeed.

Re: What house rules sex?

The fifth house rules sex, and the seventh rules relationships. If you want pleasant sex, inside or outside of a relationship, strenghthen the 5th house in an election chart for the time. The 5th is the house of good fortune. All the planets try to do something good there. If you continue to strengthen this house in elections other beneficial and often unexpected consequences will come your way. It is the house of increasing happiness.

Then there is the 8th house. I looked this one up in several modern astrology books I have. And sure enough they could not praise the 8th enough in respect to sex, but these books are not the kind that give intelligible reasons to back up their claims. The author of one hints in the back of the book that her publisher would not accept much that was unpleasant. Some publishers will print anything for money. That the ends justify the means is the prevailing ethic. However, this is like printing a field guide to gathering mushrooms without specifing the ones that are slow acting deadly poisons.

In elections weaken the 8th house: it is not a harmless place. It will produce harsh unintended consequences even when used for the best intentions. This is what astrologers have written about it until just recently. Well what about legacies and dowries and taxes? If you have years of experience in astrology perhaps you can safely deal with those things in the 8th, but be careful. For someone with a strong 8th house in the natal chart, use the planets involved in favorable locations in election charts. This will help set in motion a chain of favorable events in the native's life although it cannot completely eliminate the effects indicated in the radical chart.

Now I see upon looking at the top of this thread that is in the general chat area. Hope you don't mind some astrology.

5th= Sex for fun and affairs
8th= Serious Sex/Love Affairs

That is what I was taught by my teachers, and always read.

Re: What house rules sex?

Kim Farnell gives a good answer to the 'question in question' at http://www.skyscript.co.uk/love.html.

I am posting the most relevant part of her write-up here.

Quote:
Modern astrology often claims sex is an 8th house matter. Yet traditionally, sex and 'love making' is aligned with the 5th house. Even in modem terms, sex as a 'recreational' or 'casual experience' is clearly a 5th house activity. Those who like to be nit-picking about these matters may prefer to have sex in the 5th when it's for fun and the 8th when it involves issues of manipulation. But since few of us would like to ask the sort of questions needed to elicit an answer on this, at some point we have to make a choice. Personally, I have found that the 5th house is far more revealing when it comes to sexual matters, except in those instances when some form of abuse is involved.
Personally, I will stick to House five, the natural domicile of Leo, is associated with I, me & my pleasure/recreation, so sex as a form of my pleasurable act fits the bill well there.
