Why am I like this?

Hi everyone, Iím Minnie, Iím new here and Iíve been studying astrology for quite awhile imo (4 years) but have never really been able to understand or Ďreadí my own chart. Iím comfortable interpreting others and using such information to help them but I can never really do the same for myself. Maybe itís just by Pluto-Chiron in the already all questioning Sagittarius but I was hoping maybe someone could help me make sense of it.

Additional info about my chart not included in the picture that I find significant is the asteroids Fama and Arachne conjunct my Ascendant.

Thanks * Love you

Re: Why am I like this?

Welcome to the forum. Your thread title asks, "Why am I like this?"

Like what, exactly? Do you have specific questions about your chart or your life? These would be easier to address than a full chart reading.

Re: Why am I like this?

Thank you, waybread, to specify my question I lack connection to my big three (sun-moon-rising) in terms of their placement in such social signs/houses and despite my Taurus stellium (I use 3+ planets not 4+) I relate to on a carnal level but can’t in termsl of how I should ‘work’ so to speak. My 6th house all together just makes very little sense to me, despite its significance in my chart (chart ruler, only stellium, etc). So my question pertains to why I lack luck in terms of socializing despite my (sign) placements and my inability to work consistently/be motivated despite my full 6th house in Taurus.

It seems you're asking why you're not very social. IMO, I'd say most of the planets below the horizon makes you more introverted.

The second part of your question, why you're not motivated, IMO stems from the condition of the planets in the 6th house. With Mars conjunct Jupiter square Neptune, it'll make your energy diffuse and difficult to harness. Similarly, Saturn square Uranus will make the energy in the 6th house a bit erratic and eccentric.

Re: Why am I like this?

I think you're still relatively young, and may need a little more time to fully develop your sense of self.

With Pluto and Chiron in your first house opposite moon, you may simultaneously come across to other people (first house) as very intense (Pluto) but also almost as though you expect other people to hurt (Chiron) your feelings (moon.) With your sun and Venus in Aries, you actually need a fair bit of independence, and may actually not want a social life that involves other people curbing your personal freedom in some way.

Note that in mythology, Arachne was a mortal woman who was an expert weaver. In a weaving contest with the goddess Athena (Minerva) Arachne dared to depict the gods in a bad light, showing their many foibles. Athena was so angry at this blasphemy that she condemned Arachne and her descendants to continue weaving-- as spiders. In ancient times, the big moral of the story would have been, never challenge the gods. Today we might consider Arachne to have been an independent thinker, unafraid to express her beliefs.

Have you got artistic talent, or at the very least a rich imagination? I should think so, with your "talent triangle" involving Venus, Neptune, and the moon.

With your part of fortune in the 11th house of friends, I think you have the capacity to make good friends. Have you met them yet? If not, wait for them. Sometimes a move or a new opportunity will change your social life dramatically.

Saturn by house and sign can show where and how we feel unhappy and not good-enough. But you can turn it into a penchant for self-discipline if you work at it. The 6th house relates to illness and health, the principle of service, and work in the sense of "just a job" vs. your vocation in life, which relates to your MC.

Re: Why am I like this?

Thank you, StillOne, I do find that my energy is very scattered. It’s extremely hard for me to be consistently devoted to any random task, especially when someone tells me too ( too many ‘baby’ signs in my chart (Aries Taurus Gemini) makes me feel uncooperative ��). Maybe I should check my Vesta.....

Re: Why am I like this?

Thanks a million, waybread! I am pretty young and everyone around me agrees that I havenít exactly Ďgrowní into my chart yet; but with my placements Iím sure you can imagine how easy it was to ignore them and look for someone who agrees with me lol . I am very artistic, in fact nearly every talent I have is entirely impractical in terms of standard occupations. I do vaccilate between wanting to be alone (because Iím the best ) and then wanting to share my greatness with the rest of humanity/feeling the need to prove I CAN interact. I appreciate your insight a lot, would you mind explaining a Ďtalent triangleí to me? Itís a term Iím unfamiliar with.

Re: Why am I like this?

A talent triangle is a minor chart pattern, where two pairs of sextiled planets join a third one in a trine. Trines and sextiles generally indicate relationships between planets that go well for us.

If you're just learning astrology, two books that I highly recommend are: Steven Forest, The Inner Sky; and Robert Hand, Planets in Youth.

I would look at asteroids if I thought I had a good reason to do so but there are over 20,000 of them in our solar system, and if we're not very judicious in our use of them, I think they are apt to turn into so much space junk, with which we can make a chart mean just about anything. Getting a solid grasp of planets in signs, houses, and aspects first is really important. A good rule is to have a solid grip of the "majors" before getting into the "minors."

I'm not sure what you're reading, but I'm not taken with the idea of "baby signs" or "social" houses. It's not as though Pisces is somehow more evolved or older than Aries. Another good way to understand signs is to think of their elements and modalities.

Elements: earth, air, fire, and water.

Earth=practical, material
Air=mental, intellectual
Fire=enthusiasm, action
Water=emotions and feelings.

Cardinal=taking the initiative
Fixed=staying the course
Mutable=adaptable, changeable

So: Aries is cardinal fire
Taurus is fixed earth
Gemini is mutable air.

See if this ancient way of understanding signs makes more sense to you.
