Diversity of character and personality so necessary to soul-growth Senior Extension Astrology Course All life is paradoxical, contradictory, ever-changing, and manifests under the material guise of untold and innumerable parts and phases Good and bad are purely relative terms In reality, all is good What is bad is self generated and good in the making A horoscope is not necessarily good because its portents so imply Sometimes it is the very reverse, for it is in the struggle of life that we develop strength So few of us are strong enough to stand prosperity In a nativity that promises too much good and happiness there lurk the snares of indolence, laziness, mental and spiritual lethargy, waste, materialism, luxury and ease; so that a person does not exert himself and becomes driftwood upon the ocean of life Another who has what we term a very afflicted radix, is roused by the adverse conditions and by sheer force of Will conquers himself and becomes master of his destiny In most cases, bad horoscopes are greater blessings than good ones The purpose of suffering, adversity, sickness, anguish, sadness, and unhappiness is not vengeance but education and experience And when once we realize that, we shall cease to fume, complain and ask, "Why is this happening to me? What have I done to deserve all this?" Instead we shall know that we deserve it and the only "out" is to make the best of it, endeavoring all the while to live to a set of ideals which will relegate like suffering in the future to a state of oblivion And remember above all, fellow student, that we must study the Rosicrucian Philosophy and Astrology only to develop ourselves in order that we may help those in sorrow and distress; to develop ourselves only that we may serve May the Light of true spiritual understanding shine within you Yours in fellowship, The Rosicrucian Fellowship Education Department In this course we are going to delineate a chart using the keyword system, the latter being compact and specific (Reference Lesson No 22, Junior Astrology Course.) After the basic, fundamental principles of a sign, aspect and house have been defined, then it is well to embellish and add thereto all that we can But first, delineate by keywords For references in detailed delineation, see Simplified Scientific Astrology and The Message of the Stars We strongly advise the earnest student, the seeker of the great spiritual truths of the Divine Science of Astrology, to study The Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception, for without a working knowledge of the Rosicrucian Teachings the higher, spiritual truths of the Science and the intuitive faculties of delineating a map will ever remain a closed book to him Especially, we wish to refer him to chapters and pages on the vehicles and bodies of man (Reference Chapter 1, Visible and Invisible Worlds, The Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception, and pages 57 to 76, 139 to 143, and page 298.) The Rosicrucian Fellowship, in analyzing a chart, usually adheres to a definite standard of form and arrangement, like the following in sequential order: 1] Ascendant and Physical Body 2] Individuality 3] Personality 4] Mentality 5] (a) Vocation (b) Finance Senior Extension Astrology Course 6] (a) Love (b) Marriage (c) Children 7] (a) Spiritual Powers (b) Occult Abilities 8] (a) Friends and enemies (b) Brothers and Sisters (c) Journeys 9] Sickness and Health 10] (a) Hopes, Wishes, Aspirations (b) Sorrow and Self-Undoing (c) Old Age (d) Death The following tables are the longitudes of the planets, their declinations, and the sign, degree and minute, to be placed on the necessary houses in order to erect the horoscope of a male, born July 4, 1932; 2:15 AM, Standard Time, Los Angeles, California Please insert the planets in the wheel, work out the aspects, parallels, elements, etc (Review Junior Astrology Lesson No 20 for aspects and No 22 for keywords Also review pages 81 to 89, Simplified Scientific Astrology The ruler of the chart is described on page 420, The Message of the Stars.)

Whatever phase of the chart is being delineated, see what agreement, assistance, or cooperation; or what disagreement, discord, or variance, it has with the Ascendant Then qualify its manifestation accordingly Ruler of the Chart: It is considered that one planet, or the Sun or Moon, in the horoscope, in a special sense, represents the native or person for whom the nativity (horoscope) is erected, while the rest of the nativity represents aspects of his life which are external to him, as, for example, his friends, occupation, wife, children, and so on This planet is called the Ruler or Lord of the Horoscope It is usually the Ruler of the Ascendant, but not invariably so, for if that planet is very weak, whereas another is much stronger, as by rising near the Ascendant, with strong aspects, or by being on the MC, it may become ruler It is then the ruler of the Personal Self, much as the Ascendant and first house generally are, and in a certain sense all the rest of the map may be regarded as subject to this rulership In other words, the spirit or Ego is limited in expression to the imperfections of the physical or personal self, the instrument through which it must express in one particular life on earth But in most cases the ruler of the Ascendant is the ruler of the horoscope and in the chart we are delineating Mercury is the ruler (Gemini rises) Physical Description: Ascertained by the Ascendant, planets in the first house, ruler of the chart, Sun, Moon, and any group of planets in any one sign (Reference, page 89, The Message of the Stars.) Physical Power: Ascertained by the Sun, Moon, Ascendant, Mars and Saturn (Reference, page 149, Simplified Scientific Astrology.) Gemini Rising: Common, Airy, Flexible, and Mental Ascendant Square Neptune: Wily and subtle in times of temptation Ascendant Trine Saturn: Great persistence, courage and dependability Ascendant Parallel Mercury: Frankness, open mind, quick perception Ascendant Parallel Saturn: Balance and depth of mind when other factors are favorable Part of Fortune in Ascendant and Parallel Ascendant: Furnishes pabulum for soul-growth in the personality and the environment through the efforts of the Physical Body Mercury Parallel Part of Fortune: Furnishes incentive and reason for the accumulation of material wealth and possessions Senior Extension Astrology Course Questions: 1] Synthesize in one short paragraph the following configurations: [a] Ascendant square Neptune [b] Ascendant trine Saturn [c] Ascendant parallel Mercury [d] Ascendant parallel Saturn [e] Part of Fortune in Ascendant and parallel Ascendant 2] Describe briefly the physical body of this boy (Reference, Pages 89 and 95, The Message of the Stars.) 3] Give briefly, in keywords, the following effects: [a] Mars conjunction Ascendant [b] Mars parallel Ascendant [c] Mercury in the third house [d] Mercury sextile Ascendant [e] Mercury parallel Ascendant [f] Mercury sextile Mars [g] Mercury parallel Mars [h] Mercury parallel Part of Fortune Note: Please not fail to read and reread the pages in which you find the answers to these questions After carefully studying the subject matter, strive to condense your answer as much as possible, taking into consideration the principal points Senior Extension Astrology Course Lesson No The Individuality The Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception tells us that there is only one way of showing our faith, and that is by our works Therefore, as you continue the study of this Divine Science of Astrology, realize that you are becoming the steward of specialized knowledge which must only be used in order to serve humanity Service is the Keyword and it can never be repeated too much nor too often It does not matter in what department of life you are placed, whether you are high or low, rich or poor It is immaterial whether you are engaged in some menial task, or whether it is your privilege to lead and manage affairs in the world's work It is absolutely unessential whether your hands are grimy with the lowest labor, perhaps digging a sewer to maintain the health of the community, or whether they are soft and white as required when nursing the sick The determining factor which decides whether any class of work is spiritual or material is our attitude in the matter The person who does the most menial labor may be far more spiritual than the leader in the world's work; far more sincere and devoted than a hypocritical teacher who pretends to spirituality, but is corrupt within A kind look, an expression of confidence, a sympathetic and loving helpfulness, can all be given regardless of wealth The Individuality: As man is made in the image of God, who is threefold in manifestation, so astrologically, the higher Self in man is represented by a circle with the central point denoting the highest spiritual aspect, the Divine Spirit whose faculty is Will Therefore, the Sun stands in the horoscope as the highest expression of the Individual Self It denotes the positive outgoing influences in man, his character in the highest sense of the word (Reference, Page 147, Simplified Scientific Astrology.) The Sun represents the Ego, the Individual, the Spirit in Man Its place in a horoscope, together with its aspects, shows the method and coloring and manner of ingress of the spiritual forces which go to make up his present life expression The Sun is man's spiritual power house (Reference, Pages 86, 258, 265, 390 and 391, The Rosicrucian Cosmo-Conception.) Spiritual Strength: The spiritual strength of an individual is shown in the complete sense by the Sun, Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune However, the Sun is the main factor, the other planets lending color, harmony or discord, assistance or hindrance, in the matter (Reference, Page 147, Simplified Scientific Astrology.) And so, fellow student, when you seek the inner man, look to the Sun First, its sign; second, its aspects; third, its house position In the chart that we are delineating there are but five aspects: the conjunction with the Moon, the parallels to Mars, Pluto, and the Part of Fortune, and the sextile to Neptune Sun Parallel Part of Fortune: Assists the Ego, the spiritual man, to glean valuable experience and soul growth through material and financial circumstances, and efforts of the physical body (There is danger of losses by overgenerosity and prodigality.) Questions: 1] Give the keywords of the Sun in Cancer 2] Give the keywords of the Sun in the Second House 10 Senior Extension Astrology Course 3] [a] Describe in keywords the Sun in conjunction with the Moon [b] Describe in keywords the Sun parallel Mars [c] Describe in keywords the Sun sextile Neptune 4] Blend the keywords of questions 1, 2, and 3, in a short and compact paragraph 5] Write a detailed delineation of the Sun in this chart, with regard to sign, house, and aspects Write at least two hundred words 38 Senior Extension Astrology Course Answers to Lesson No 1] Keywords of the Moon in Cancer Sociable, sympathetic, kind disposition; averse to physical, moral, mental effort; tenacious, sensitive, timid, psychic, impressionable, emotional, indolent Loves to drift with the tide Fertile imagination, clannish with a great love of personal power (Reference, Message of the Stars, page 226, and Junior Lesson No 22) 2] Keywords of the Moon in the Second House Fluctuating finances many changes in money matters The conjunction with the Sun makes matters more settled however (Reference, Message of the Stars, page 221) 3] Keywords of the Moon square Uranus Makes the native irresponsible, perverse, eccentric, egotistic, overbearing, conceited and intolerant; fanatically childish and fretful; inconstant and unconventional, loving sudden and spasmodic changes and craving a variety of bohemian pleasures He may allow sex to run riot (Reference, Message of the Stars, pages 217, 241, 347) 4] In one short paragraph coalesce the keywords of the Moon in Cancer, Moon in 2nd house, Moon conjunct Sun and Moon square Uranus Kind, sociable disposition (Moon in Cancer), but erratic, overbearing and conceited (Moon square Uranus), with a restless desire for change (Moon in Cancer) Having an inherent distaste for work (Moon in Cancer), he brings much unhappiness upon himself because of business fluctuations (Moon 2nd house) An impressionable (Moon in Cancer) inconstant lover with disastrous results (Moon square Uranus) He is sensitive, and has a perpetual inferiority complex (Moon in Cancer), coupled with the self-will and perversity of the true bohemian (Moon square Uranus) The Individuality and Personality are inextricably interwoven, both strongly marked with the characteristics of Cancer 5] Delineate in detail your understanding of the influences of the Moon on this boy, with regard to sign, house, and aspects Write at least three hundred words The Moon has no basic nature of its own It serves to focus the qualities of its sign, house, and aspects The human being who comes specifically under the Lunar Rays is often easy-going and dreamy He lives in enchanted air castles of a more or less nebulous nature and oftentimes flagrantly neglects the material world in which he functions consciously As a general rule the Moon in Cancer gives a kind, sociable disposition and bestows upon the native innate psychic faculties which enable him to sense conditions on planes other than the material That is why the Cancer person is said to be supersensitive and the subtle reason why he is so sympathetic The water, or Emotional Body, in his nature seems to blend quite readily with the water, or Emotional Bodies, of other people, and this sympathy tends to make him happy, sad, buoyant, depressed, tolerant, critical, loving, or hateful, according to the state or mood of those with whom he comes in contact The Moon in Cancer gives a love of home and of the comforts of home Good digestion is indicated provided the appetite is under control and the pleasures of the table are not indulged in to excess The Moon in the 2nd house signifies fluctuating finances However, the conjunction with the Sun will make the financial situation more settled The Moon in conjunction with the Sun will make this boy strong and running over with vitality, with the ability to recuperate rapidly from any condition or illness (This is one of the best indications for health and general success as long as the conjunction is not within degrees—combust) It should also bring him a harmonious marriage partner, one who will understand him and work with him as a true helpmate The Moon square Uranus will probably work out in the 12th house affairs of the boy, this being the only adverse aspect to the Moon The Moon square Uranus and the latter in the 12th house will probably hamper him mightily in both material and spiritual strivings and aspirations through the Senior Extension Astrology Course 39 medium of secret enemies, and at the most unlooked for and unexpected moments This configuration also makes him eccentric regarding occult science and like subjects It is obvious that all through life he will have sudden and sporadic upheavals of trouble and hostility from, and with, the opposite sex (Reference, Message of the Stars, pages 219, 221, 226, 231, 241) Answers to Lesson No 1] Write a brief paragraph describing this boy's moral status This boy is impressionable and easy-going (Sun in Cancer) and too imaginative and negative for his own good (Venus in Cancer) Therefore he will be rather of a dual, moral nature There are strong, secret passions (Venus in Cancer) and terrific desires to gratify these passions (Venus parallel Saturn and Sun parallel Mars), with ensuing trouble with the opposite sex (Venus parallel Saturn) However, the other side of his nature, his higher mind, ruled by Jupiter, inclines him naturally to a morally clean life, and one of virtue (Jupiter in Leo parallel to Midheaven), with much ability to control his passions and cravings (Jupiter trine Uranus) If he contacts the right people, the right spiritual teachings, and endeavors to live to the highest ideals he knows, this boy will rise above his lower nature, especially in later life (Jupiter in the 4th house) The good aspects of Neptune sextile Venus and Sun, as well as Jupiter trine Uranus, lend moral strength that should grow as he develops in harmony with the finer instincts 2] Write a brief paragraph on his emotional nature The boy's emotional nature is negative also, and easily aroused and swayed (Venus in Cancer) He is inherently sensual and self-indulgent to a degree with regard to his passions, and not always able to exercise control or restraint in his likes and dislikes (Mars square Neptune) He is vacillating and imaginative and could easily come under the domination of discarnate entities (Mars square Neptune) However, he again has many good qualities to offset the above Uranus trine Jupiter tends to sublimate his emotional, explosive, erratic outbursts, secret passions and attachments (Uranus square Moon), and Mars trine Saturn will give him the determination and energy to overcome if he will but try 3] Study the mental qualifications of this boy with special regard to Mercury, its sign, house position, and its aspects Write at least three hundred words on his mental tendencies Mercury follows the Sun in this chart, therefore this boy will learn more by afterthought The lessons of life will contact him through the school of hard knocks and experience Mercury in Leo gives high ideals and aspirations; a positive, strong, and persevering intellect which scorns to stoop to low and mean acts This boy may be blunt and outspoken, but he is also kind-hearted and sympathetic He will have good organizing ability and will make a capable leader, a lover of children and fond of pleasure and amusement Mercury in the third house is strong because this is the "natural" house of this planet This position will heighten the mental qualities of this boy; it will make his mind serene and optimistic, and inclined to study and research work He will probably make many short journeys The opposition of Saturn will cause delays in his plans and projects, and these obstructions in his path will tend to make him bitter and sarcastic, but his good aspects will easily help him to overcome these occasional trials and tests The parallel of Saturn will give him depth of mind sufficient for him to learn the reason for the delays and obstacles that come up He will learn to work with the laws of Nature through the help of this parallel, and he will think and plan beforehand and so prepare for all emergencies Mercury sextile Mars gives a keen, sharp, ingenious, and resourceful mentality It gives enthusiasm and the ability to imbue others with enthusiasm There is indicated in this configuration a great love of argument and debate and also an inexhaustible fund of wit and humor, with a goodly share of sarcasm which usually strikes its mark 40 Senior Extension Astrology Course Dexterity is innate and his ability to turn a hand to whatever task comes up with speed and facility will stand him in marvelous stead during the many interims of his career which will undoubtedly tax his adroitness to the utmost The parallel to Mars strengthens these energetic and dexterous qualities mentioned above If this boy should become a writer or lecturer, he would speak or write with miraculous conviction and forceful power (Reference, Pages 193, 195, 203, 208, 210, 213, Message of the Stars.) Answers to Lesson No 1] Air signs on Midheaven, Ascendant, second and sixth cusps (Aquarius, Gemini, and Libra) would show success in any literary, artistic, or clerical pursuit involving study or research The tendency to follow a number of vocations is indicated The second house is strongly fortified with Gemini on the cusp and the Sun, Moon, and Venus therein Gemini on the cusp of the second house will bring this boy changeable fortunes and a diversity of mental pursuits, and these conditions are augmented by the Moon The latter promises a future of fluctuating finances Venus in the second house is in its own house This almost guarantees financial success but it will also tend to make this boy wasteful, prodigal, and he will usually spend more than he earns, squandering his money on pleasures, women, and sensual escapades His emotions also will have much to with his financial gains and losses Venus and the Sun, both posited in Cancer, the latter a good business sign, will give him a leaning toward dealing in commodities that are used by everybody, or which are commonly used in everyday life and in the home A business which has a quick turnover will bring financial results to this boy Cancer has practically the entire rulership over the second house though Mercury is the ruler of the sign on its cusp Mercury is a good business planet also, ruling the middleman, the commission merchant, the agent, the go-between, the writer, the thinker, the mental creator The Sun in the second house in Cancer in conjunction with the Moon will cause this boy to want to change his jobs often until he finally settles down to his life's work The Sun in the second house in Cancer is very promising for monetary gain, however, the tendency to squander his money will always dog his footsteps and the thought of "easy come, easy go" will invariably haunt him One can be poor on an income of a million if one spends two million The Sun in Cancer is especially fortunate for success in later years Cancer people are often pioneers in certain lines of business or in new endeavors Their great tenacity enables them to persist until they arrive at a certain standard And when they have reached that standard they are ready to start something new Mars, with the help of the sextile to Mercury and the trine to Saturn, and Uranus trine Jupiter, will give him the urge to invent things in a mechanical, literary, and philosophical way that should be of some benefit to humanity All in all the second house is excellently fortified and promises much financial success and money through the native's own efforts, in spite of the aforementioned conditions of fluctuation and prognosticated "ups and downs." Mercury in the third house is especially suitable for business that takes the native on short journeys Selling will probably be followed at some interval in life and he could become an excellent commercial traveler for an engineering firm demonstrating mechanical models Gemini on the Ascendant gives great dexterity and the Moon in the second house gives him favor as a salesman and makes him well liked by the public The sixth house is the house of voluntary service which we perform as our share of the world's work for an equivalent share of the world's wealth The sixth house in this horoscope is ruled by Venus, as Libra is on the cusp Venus, being in the second house, will put this boy under the yoke of Senior Extension Astrology Course 41 business and engender in him a maximum of ambition for success in the material affairs and things of life Mars is also prominent in the rulership of the sixth house because of Scorpio's interception therein This will give him energy and enthusiasm in his work and make him skillful and methodical, never resting until his work is as perfect as he can make it, even if he is forced to it over and over again And because Venus, ruler of the sixth house, is in the second house, and Mars, co-ruler of the sixth house, is in the Ascendant, together with the Sun and Moon in the second house also, he will always be chiefly concerned with business, the making of money and the acquiring of material things For his heart is very definitely located in the lower desire-phase of temporal cravings, wherein the acquisition of wealth, fame, and fortune hold supreme sway The eighth house is devoid of planets and has 29 Sagittarius on the cusp with Jupiter as ruler of the house in Leo in the fourth house This will bring him money in later life from his wife, from legacies or through partnerships, as Sagittarius is also on the cusp of the seventh house, Jupiter ruler thereof Jupiter trine Uranus will bring him success through law or mechanical pursuits As teaching is so strongly stressed, he may find work as a professor or lecturer on law or engineering The tenth house is ruled by Saturn and Uranus with some influence from Jupiter Saturn's influence in Aquarius will make the boy deliberate and serious-minded with an inclination for science, literature, philosophy, and law He will no doubt be forced to work hard and earn all his honors and any other position of importance he may ever occupy And when he will have earned it, Uranus will suddenly shower recognition and honors upon him, though he may be diffident about them, the Moon being square Uranus However he must keep a constant lookout because just when fame and fortune are being showered profusely, Uranus is quite liable to double-cross him, upset his best laid plans and bring sudden disaster short-lived in his case, however If mechanical inclinations were developed and the advantages of Saturn, Mars, and Uranus in this chart were stressed in vocational education, engineering would be a strong and profitable field Mars gives aggressiveness and dynamic energy for active work Saturn shoulders responsibility and lends system and foresight Uranus gives ingenuity and ability to solve problems, also inventive ability for the development of new ideas and cleverness in adapting the latest advances of science The trine between Uranus and Jupiter, both co-rulers of the tenth house, should bring him fame at some time of life Saturn ruling the tenth house, in the ninth house, will give the boy a tremendous leaning toward the writing and study of law and the studies of philosophy, physics, and metaphysics Saturn at home in Aquarius in the ninth house trine Mars makes a good lawyer or judge In summary, the chart from the vocational and financial standpoints promises much success and money through application, arduous work, and a serious concentration on the more profound phases of the conditions which lie beneath the surface of physical life 2] Journalist, lecturer, or writer because: Gemini is rising: mental sign, writing Mars in Gemini sextile Mercury in third house: literary ability, expression Air signs on Midheaven, second, and sixth cusps: literary, intellectual or mental vocation Mercury, ruler of horoscope, in natural house, third: evidence of natural expression in writing, speaking or journalism Mars in Ascendant trine Saturn in 9th house in Aquarius: could write on religion or law Aquarius on Midheaven: a fixed, mental sign, original, inventive: this augmented by Sun, Moon, and Venus in Cancer, gives him great imagination and foresight Using best aspects of Mercury and Neptune: added expression and inspiration Teacher because: Mercury is the ruler of the chart: school teacher Jupiter and Mercury are in Leo: the latter ruling the 5th house, the house of teaching Jupiter trine Uranus: could teach law or mechanical subjects 42 Senior Extension Astrology Course Mercury opposition Saturn enables him to teach saturnine subjects: penetration, depth of mind Aquarius on Midheaven and Saturn in Aquarius: inclination for scientific teaching and work in the laboratory 3] The boy's financial prospects are excellent Sun, Moon, and Venus in 2nd house in Cancer indicate money Saturn, well aspected in the 9th house, in Aquarius, ruling the latter sign and the 10th house also, indicates success Part of Fortune in Ascendant Mercury, co-ruler of 2nd house, situated in 3rd house and ruler of horoscope, sextile Mars on the Ascendant, in Mercury's sign, shows money from mental pursuits The Sun, Moon, and Venus in Cancer, and in the 2nd house will prove him to be addicted to the making of money, and almost guarantees him success in this field, but always there lurks the danger of extravagance Planets in Cancer in the 2nd house show wealth from family as well as being an excellent indication for earned income Answers to Lesson No 1] (a) Virgo (b) Mercury (c) Leo (d) Venus (e) Libra 2] Sagittarius and Jupiter 3] Marriage should bring him the most happiness in later life because Jupiter rules the 7th, the house of marriage, and Jupiter is deposited in the 4th house, which rules the latter part of life—old age Moon in the 2nd house and Moon square Uranus show a late marriage 4] Mercury, the life ruler of this boy, is also ruler of the 5th house, the department of his love affairs, pleasures, and amusements Morally, this boy is of an extremely passionate nature (Ref Lesson No 4) He is negative, easily swayed, easily aroused, and very emotional However, he is inclined, within himself, to desire a more or less moral life and he has the will power to conquer himself if he will but try Virgo on the cusp of the 5th house will assist him to "overcome" his lower nature and keep it from running amuck, for Virgo is a cold, earthy, mental sign, the sign of purity and service Therefore underneath his ardent, emotional love nature a mental brake will force him to take stock and call a halt to excessive emotional and physical pleasures Mercury is sextile Mars, giving too much ardor to his love nature and inclining him to fall in and out of love frequently The opposition of Saturn to Mercury, however, will make him think before he ever takes the step to the altar unless the impetuosity of Mars causes him to make a rash marriage The Dragon's Tail in the 5th house may be interpreted as the drop of bitterness in the honey The Dragon's Tail is often said to signify the unredeemed in man, and if we take this view of it we may say that he will find his redemption through his love affairs, through his pleasures, his amusements, his children, and in all things connected with his 5th house—if—he lives up to the highest spiritual ideals of these various phases of his life There is a possibility that any marriage he makes might turn out to be barren with regard to children because of Virgo ruling the 5th house As heretofore stated, Virgo is an earthy, barren sign, and Mercury, its ruler, is in direct opposition to Saturn However, with Jupiter in Leo, the natural ruler of the 5th house, and the fact that 23 degrees of Libra operate there also, these conditions will tend to equalize the barren possibilities to a great extent Venus is influential in the 5th house as it is the ruler of Libra This makes his susceptibility to the opposite sex all the more powerful and will tend to somewhat soften the coldness of Saturn opposing Mercury Senior Extension Astrology Course 43 Jupiter rules the 7th, the house of marriage, and makes a very close trine to Uranus, thus showing the possibility of a sudden marriage The marriage partner may be an unusual sort of woman, the Uranian type; rather unconventional and probably jolly and broadminded As Jupiter is in the house of the home, in Leo, the wife will enjoy her home and will want to entertain on a lavish scale She will probably dominate in the sphere in which she moves There is also this factor to be considered: Saturn is in very close opposition to the boy's life ruler, Mercury, and this aspect alone may cause him to never marry He will have spells of indecision, but the chances are that he will marry and probably more than once as Sagittarius (on the 7th house cusp) is a double-bodied sign Cancer people love the home and all that the home brings them Sagittarius, the sign on the 7th house, and its ruler Jupiter, have prominent influence on the description of the marriage partner for this boy Jupiter trine to Uranus and parallel to the Midheaven clearly indicates the strength of position and advantages that she will bring into his life His idealistic search for a partner may easily postpone marriage until later years, with the possible result that he would marry a widow with children (Dragon's Head in the 11th house of partner's children; Jupiter ruling Sagittarius, a double-bodied sign, on the 7th house cusp of marriage) Answers to Lesson No 1] From the Sun's sign, house position, and its sextile to Neptune state briefly the boy's spiritual power The importance of the sextile between the Sun and Neptune cannot be overestimated This configuration intensifies the spiritual faculties and gives an innate love of the occult The Sun in Cancer denotes a love of the occult also, but more from the psychic standpoint The latter gives strong tendencies for spiritual emotionalism Occult interest will be greater in the latter part of life (Neptune in 4th house) There will no doubt be much concentrated endeavor, but unfortunately it may manifest through material channels The extent of development largely depends upon the use made of money and financial power (Sun in the 2nd house) 2] In keywords give the effect of: (a) Capricorn on the cusp of the 9th house (b) Saturn in the 9th house in Aquarius (a) Capricorn on the cusp of the 9th house gives a love of position and honor together with great ambition along the lines of religion, law, and the higher mental pursuits, but strictly from the materialistic standpoint There is organizing ability, pride, and pessimism in the boy and it might be added that he has the rudiments of being a stickler for convention (b) Saturn in the 9th house in Aquarius makes him persistent, cautious, and orthodox with regard to religion, law, and philosophy, progressive, analytical and humane (Saturn in Aquarius) He has a serious, thoughtful mind with an inclination for science (Saturn in Aquarius) There may be obstructions in all 9th house affairs (Capricorn on 9th with Saturn in 9th) Orthodox, yet progressive 3] Write at least 300 words on the religious nature, occult ability, and spiritual strength of the boy Capricorn on the 9th house cusp, ruling the boy's department of religion, ethics, and philosophy, is the sign of the Redeemer, and the Lord of Capricorn, Saturn, is deposited in the 9th house in Aquarius The latter is the sign of Altruism (All-Truth) There is a trine to Mars from Saturn and an opposition from Saturn to Mercury and both Saturn and Mercury are in fixed signs His ethical and philosophical natures will unfold slowly because Capricorn rules the 9th and Saturn is placed therein The opposition of Saturn to Mercury will make him rather slow to perceive anything but the conventional in the church because his higher vision will be clouded by desires for position, honor, and power He will be religious to some extent, but cautiously so, and he will prefer orthodoxy to the more liberal, advanced teachings A serious, thoughtful mind will conceal a flair for what is progressive, analytical, and humane in all walks of life 44 Senior Extension Astrology Course Most of his intense efforts, particularly in early life, will manifest through the gateways of materialism and money making This is indicated by Capricorn on the cusp of the 9th house, the Sun in the 2nd house, and Venus, co-ruler of the 12th house, also in the 2nd house The 12th house is ruled by Mars and Venus as Aries is on the cusp and Taurus is intercepted therein However, Uranus is deposited in the 12th house and therefore has the most influence Uranus is the planet of Altruism and at some time in his life, probably after middle age, or an approximation of that time, it will make him original and daring in the search for new truths This 12th house position denotes success in occult matters when once the spirit is awakened The square of the Moon will impede this awakening and obstruct the boy's occult progress to some extent, but the trine of Jupiter will overcome these difficulties as the years pass Let us sum up the reasons why the spiritual awakening will come in later life: Saturn in the 9th house hinders religion, philosophy, and the higher mind Capricorn on the 9th cusp—earthy, material, slow, and ruled by Saturn Aries on 12th house cusp—Mars rules Aries and is not an occult planet Taurus intercepted in the 12th house—Venus rules Taurus and is deposited in the 2nd house which smothers occult tendencies under a blanket of materialism Uranus in 12th house Uranus is an occult planet but its influence is impeded by the square of the Moon in the 2nd house The trine of Jupiter will offset this square, but only after many years, as Jupiter is in the 4th house, the house of old age and later life Sun in 2nd house sextile to Neptune This is the boy's spiritual powerhouse The sextile with Neptune in the 4th house augments the possibility of a spiritual awakening in later years All hindrances and obstructions in the boy's path will be brushed aside in the ardor of his enthusiasm for growth and expansion in spiritual knowledge when Jupiter trine Uranus comes into full power in 12th house matters The opportunity will surely present itself, but how the soul accepts and uses the opportunity can not be foreshadowed by mortal man Answers to Lesson No 1] Friends: [a] Pisces on 11th—many friends, some undoubtedly bringing much sorrow [b] Neptune in 4th—soul growth through friends toward the close of life [c] Neptune sextile Venus—platonic and pleasing companions [d] Neptune sextile Sun—friends who are advanced along spiritual lines [e] Neptune square Mars—contacts with fanatical, sensual, and dishonest people Some friends attracted would be of low character [f] Mars conjunct Ascendant—ambitious, persuasive and overbearing friends [g] Mars sextile Mercury—concrete-minded friends of an enthusiastic nature aid him with their remarkable dexterity A keen, quick mind and wit, sometimes combined with bluntness and sarcasm [h] Mars trine Saturn—friends who persist through life with their determined energetic forcefulness aid him to achieve unusual success This brings esteem and helps overcome a rather cruel, hard vein in his nature [i] The boy will have many friends (Pisces on the cusp of the 11th house), particularly platonic relationships (Neptune sextile Venus), among those who are spiritually advanced (Neptune sextile the Sun), and much soul growth will accrue especially toward the end of life (Neptune in the 4th house) He will have much sorrow also (Pisces on the cusp of the 11th house), brought on by the machinations of ambitious friends (Mars on the Ascendant), and in his desire for money and success he will contact numerous fanatical, irascible people who will make his life miserable (Neptune square Mars) Mars in conjunction with the Ascendant in Gemini indicates bluntness, however If he controls this bluntness and overcomes a slight tendency to be somewhat cruel, he will warrant the esteem and help of people of position and authority (Mars trine Saturn) 2]Open Enemies: Senior Extension Astrology Course 45 [a]Sagittarius on 7th—since Sagittarius is a dual sign, open enemies will be of two distinct types; those of a gambling and intemperate disposition or those of a just, religious, and philosophical nature [b] Jupiter ruling 7th—law-abiding, charitable, and benevolent open enemies [c] Jupiter trine Uranus—sudden animosities will be overcome by the native's honest and sincere nature His sociable, hospitable, and friendly manner will turn many open enemies into influential friends [d] Jupiter in 4th—very few, if any, enemies in later life As a matter of fact, his open enemies could turn out to be far better friends than his "friends." 3] Secret Enemies: [a] Aries on 12th cusp—many impulsive, energetic, and audacious secret enemies [b] Taurus in 12th—underhanded enemies who may try to steal his possessions Emotional attachments with the opposite sex may bring him trouble through obstinate, revengeful personal attacks Petty differences in personal matters may bring sorrow through possessions [c] Uranus in Aries—resentment and much opposition [d] Uranus in 12th—many underhanded enemies and unexpected trouble therefrom [e] Uranus square Moon—sudden and unexpected disaster results through enemies created by clandestine attachments and unconventional action [f] Uranus trine Jupiter—this aspect will help him immeasurably to offset and withstand the tribulations inflicted upon him by many secret antagonists Application of philosophical ideals to his daily living overcomes unconscious reactions of a detrimental nature 4] Synthesize questions and in one short paragraph There will be few open enemies during his life Those who turn against him will deal with him charitably and benevolently (Jupiter, ruler of the 7th house), such enemies probably being of an easygoing, sporting disposition, or of a philosophical, religious nature (Sagittarius on the cusp of the 7th house) There may be many secret and underhanded foes, however, and trouble therefrom (Aries on the cusp of the 12th house, Mars ruler thereof, Uranus in the 12th house) Selfish indulgence may cause loss of possessions and emotional attachments may bring sorrow through the opposite sex (Taurus, co-ruler of the 12th house, Venus ruler thereof) and disasters will result (Uranus square Moon), but natural sincerity and honesty (Uranus trine Jupiter) will offset the evil in all departments of his life to a marvelous degree 5] Brothers and Sisters: [a] Cancer on 3rd—imaginative, sensitive, tenacious, and opinionated brothers and sisters Worrying and bothersome details result from close association with relatives [b] Mercury in the 3rd house denotes some harmony with brothers and sisters, but Mercury in opposition to Saturn will make them bitter, sarcastic, cunning, and untruthful They will obstruct and hinder him to a great extent in his mental pursuits 6] Journeys: [a] Cancer indicates many journeys, but Mercury in opposition to Saturn will cause delays, troubles, and obstacles [b] Unfavorable Saturn in the 9th house in opposition to Mercury in the 3rd and Capricorn on the cusp of the 9th obstruct, hinder, and delay long journeys Saturn trine Mars in Gemini in the 1st house shows greater tendencies towards long journeys in the early part of life Answers to Lesson No 1] [a] Gemini rules the arms, hands, lungs, shoulders, thymus gland, and the upper ribs [b] Gemini is a common sign, and when it is on the Ascendant it very often signifies a person who is quite careless of his health and habits, and on this account we find more tubercular patients among Gemini people than among those of any one of the other eleven signs [c] A person with Gemini rising is subject to nervous troubles, but with the slightest help he can throw off most illnesses Afflictions in this sign indicate pulmonary troubles, bronchitis, asthma, pneumonia, pleurisy, consumption, and every sort of nervous ailment and disorder 46 Senior Extension Astrology Course 2] [a] Mars in Gemini on the Ascendant gives energy, a strong constitution, excellent recuperative powers, and much vitality It has some adverse effects, however, and as it is co-ruler of the 6th house it shows certain tendencies: pneumonia, bronchitis, wounds or fractures of the hands, arms, or collar bone; and by reflex action in Sagittarius, fractured femur and sciatica [b] Mars trine Saturn sustains the physical body of the boy, gives him great vitality, and promises general good health for long periods [c] Mars square Neptune implies potential nervous troubles from impulsive and sensual excesses, fevers, and danger from poisons 3] Mars rules the iron in the blood, the red coloring matter in the blood, the genitals, the motor nerves, the left cerebral hemisphere, muscular movements, the motor segment of the spinal cord, the rectum, and the Desire Body 4] [a] Venus in Cancer, co-ruler of the 6th house, shows a proclivity to distended stomach, gastric tumor, and nausea [b] Venus parallel Saturn is an adverse configuration as regards health It denotes trouble with the opposite sex, and obstruction of the venous circulation 5] [a] Saturn in Aquarius gives a tendency to weak ankles, easily sprained, and, by reflex action in Leo, curvature of the spine, sclerosis, and afflictions of the heart, back, and arteries The opposition of Mercury increases these tendencies [b] Uranus in Aries reacts upon the head, producing headaches, neuralgia, and diseases of the brain and cerebral hemisphere [c] Neptune in Virgo shows a predisposition to hypochondria, and nervous disorders originating in the abdominal region and the large and small intestines Cholera, appendicitis, and intestinal troubles are indicated by the above placement 6] Mars on the Ascendant in the 1st house in Gemini strengthens the boy's constitution and gives him much energy and vitality There is a weakness, however, with regard to bronchial inflammation, pleurisy, and pneumonia, and the weakness is more pronounced because of Mars square Neptune This tends to cause trouble through poisons and fevers in the intestines (Neptune in Virgo) Saturn in Aquarius shows varicose veins, and by reflex action in Leo, heart trouble Saturn opposition Mercury not only increases this tendency, but also suggests a nervous condition Mars trine Saturn and Mars sextile Mercury, however, will offset these tendencies to a great degree The Sun, Moon, and Venus in Cancer indicate strong desires for rich and sweet foods, and their consumption to excess will cause a congested digestive system and various sorts of digestive disorders The Moon square Uranus assists in making the native indiscreet in his choice of foods, hence headaches, a clogged system, and stomach complaints are likely Later in life there might possibly be a rheumatic condition, but with a normal amount of common sense and care the boy will escape many proclivities imposed by pastlife indulgences Note: It is not intended to be implied by the above that the configurations noted will produce all of the afflictions and diseases cited The configurations merely show the tendencies which may materialize in one or more afflictions; or these may be largely avoided by "ruling one's stars." Answers to Lesson No 10 1] Pisces on the 11th house cusp indicates limitation in having hopes, wishes, and aspirations realized As Neptune, ruler of this house, basically represents superphysical entities of all degrees, and as it signifies delusions, chaotic mental conditions, and confusion from the material standpoint, the boy's worldly hopes will often be thwarted Spiritualizing his aspirations will be his safeguard Neptune sextile the Sun intensifies his higher vibrations and makes him peculiarly sensitive to the echoes from the heaven world Therefore, with his fertile imagination and deep emotion (Neptune sextile Venus), he will well to aspire high in life If his aspirations are low, he will meet many obstacles and disappointments There is danger of psychism, mediumship, atheism, and if conditions Senior Extension Astrology Course 47 are not carefully watched and controlled, discarnate entities may take hold of him and force him to go to any extreme to gratify his impulsive and lawless desires and wishes (Neptune square Mars) 2] Having an independent, original, and ambitious nature, coupled with an impulsive, abrupt, and headstrong manner (Uranus in Aries), he will arouse resentment and opposition all through life Such conditions indicate loss of reputation, estrangement from kin and friends, and a never-ending haunting fear of impending disaster (Uranus in 12th house), which, if he fails to curb his impetuosity will undoubtedly materialize Uranus square the Moon tends to augment the foregoing, inasmuch as it makes him erratic, overbearing, with desires for clandestine attachments which will always result in trouble and sorrow On the other hand, Uranus trine Jupiter will come to his assistance in that it will enable him to realize his broad, humane, and benevolent tendencies, and force him to develop his innate finer qualities of honesty and sincerity; the desire for the better and higher things of life will possess his soul if he will but allow it entrance 3] Jupiter posited in the 4th house is excellent for all conditions in later life The boy will accumulate money, probably inherit a legacy from his parents, and will end his days among friends Old age prosperity is also promised by Jupiter trine Uranus, and this aspect and promise are augmented by Jupiter parallel the Midheaven These configurations, together with Neptune in the 4th house, will bring him into contact with spiritual science, and enable him to develop his spiritual faculties (Neptune sextile the Sun) Occult philosophy and religion will also play their parts in his later years (Neptune in the 4th house), but there is danger of their misuse due to an irascible and fanatical nature (Neptune square Mars); therefore, he will constantly have to exert restraint—physically, morally, mentally, and spiritually Neptune sextile Venus will be an aid in this respect 4] [a] Because Sagittarius is on the cusp of the 8th house and Jupiter ruler thereof, a peaceful death is indicated, although it may be sudden and unexpected due to the fact that Jupiter is in aspect to Uranus [b] There are excellent significations that the native will endeavor to lead the regenerate life, but not until his later years If, at that time, he awakens to the higher vibrations of Jupiter, ruler of the 8th house, trine Uranus in the 12th house, and Jupiter parallel the MC, he will undoubtedly strive to live and conform to the highest and best he knows But vigilance is to be the watchword if success is to be realized 48 Senior Extension Astrology Course Answers to Lesson No 11 Senior Extension Astrology Course 49 50 Senior Extension Astrology Course Answers to Lesson No 12 Senior Extension Astrology Course 51 52 Senior Extension Astrology Course THE ROSICRUCIAN FELLOWSHIP 2222 MISSION AVENUE PO BOX 713 OCEANSIDE, CA 92049-0713 USA TELEPHONE (760) 757-6600 FAX (760) 721-3806
