CosmiTec's Love Letter, Issue #079 -- Dividing The Houses
June 21, 2011

If NASA want its employees and family members to be prepared for the unforeseen, then YOU should be too!

This is not alarming, nor is it to cause panic. It's the normal thing to do when you live on planet earth with all that it encompasses (man- or nature-made).

It's about an attitude.

It's about a mindset.

It's about taking responsibility.

And yes, it's also about breaking a taboo.

Most homes (should) have a First Aid Kit, so, why not going a step further in case more drastic measures have to be taken?

Astrologically, we are slowly going towards more turbulent times in the world -- be it because of wild weather, natural disasters or war-like situations. Uranus and Pluto are slowly entering the orb of an applying square in 2012 (through 2015).

Also, the second half of this year 2011 (starting in September) will bring another chain of SuperMoons, one after the other, resulting in extreme weather conditions.

Add to this the (waxing) cycle of the Solar flares and Solar storms (till 2013) that will increase in number and intensity, and you may understand that preparedness is just a critical factor in living on earth.

A couple of years ago, a very insightful article was published in Time Magazine about what mankind has learned since the 2004 Tsunami, 9/11, Katrina, severe disasters etc...

The answer was a shocking NOTHING. People are still as UNprepared as ever for anything; they are still not able to manage on their own, they still wait for (outside) help (from the governments -- local, federal, etc. -- other organizations, neighbours, family members etc.).

In some way, people have to be re-educated. Often, our current education system is centred around making people dependent in many ways, while it should be the opposite way. People should learn to become more independent, more self-reliant to overcome critical situations.

It's true that where dependency is, there flows the money and thrives the economy... Reversing this all will not be easy, if even possible at all!

Standing on our own would make us stronger and that's why NASA has it right here.

Preparedness for the unforeseen (be it for illness, fires, quakes, tsunamis, radiation, floods and inundations and name it...) should be an attitude and a mindset that would make us all stronger in the end. It even may save lives.

Enough nagging... ;-)

Time for another issue that delves deeper into the house divisions and its importance for your love life.

Till next month!

Love Forecasts for July 2011

Around July 1, the 3rd Solar Eclipse of the year takes place at 9° Cancer. This Solar Eclipse belongs to a totally new (Saros) series, 13 New South. This is a very rare event indeed as it will run from July 1, 2011 for 1200 years and will not end until 3237!

The same theme of this eclipse will occur about every 18 years. Because the influence of an eclipse lasts about 6-7 months we'll have to see what happens to find the basic meaning and theme of this new series.

However, when delineating Solar Eclipses, the brilliant and keen astrologer Bernadette Brady uses the exact midpoints to define the essence of an eclipse.

This July 1 Solar Eclipse has an exact PL=MA/JU midpoint (Pluto is at the midpoint between Mars and Jupiter) denoting huge endeavours and the endings of a long struggle. Extraordinary effort and achievements are possible in the coming months.

Because Jupiter is at the Sun/Neptune midpoint too, long and difficult issues may reach a gentle conclusion during the 6 months to come. There may be huge windfalls!

All 13 series have been linked to mass events (disasters) related to Austrasia (South Asia, Australia and New Zealand), making us wonder if this new 13 series too may be related to such events (think about the January 4 Solar Eclipse!). Be prepared if you live in the area.

The Solar Eclipse in the zodiac sign of Cancer is concerned with home, real estate and the family. Because it's a South Eclipse, this eclipse will absolutely be a "home and family" (domestic) eclipse for good or bad.

The applying square from the Sun to Saturn is related to separation from the family, the home, leaving the house, changing the residence etc.

Medieval astrologers have learned us that a square from Saturn to a Solar Eclipse may bring the "death of a ruler of state or King." It may be interesting to look how this totally new series unfolds in the coming months. Because the June 1 Eclipse is still unfolding too, there will be an overlap between both Eclipses and their meaning for some months though.

The Sun at 10° Cancer squares Saturn at 10° Libra around July 3. You will have to overcome limitations and take your responsabilities. Lots of work keeps you away from the funny side of life.

Around July 4, Venus enters home-loving Cancer. You will value your house and home-life. Now is the time to do some home improvements. In matters of love, you tend to become more sensitive but also more emotional and less stable. You may easily feel hurt and withdraw more easily the coming weeks.

Make your home a cozy place.

Mercury at 5° Leo squares Jupiter at 5° Taurus around July 5, resulting in expenses for your children, hobby, entertainment or pleasures. If you are born around January 26, March 11, April 25-26, June 11-12, July 28-29, September 13, October 29 or December 12-13, there are worries about finances and/or illness (especially related to the lungs and/or the liver) around July 5-6.

Around July 7, Venus at 4° Cancer squares Uranus at 4° Aries. Short-lived but highly irresistible attractions rule. Enjoy the moments.

Venus at 5° Cancer will oppose Pluto at 5° Capricorn the day after. Actually, from July 6 to July 10, stationing Uranus will be the apex planet of a T-square with Venus and Pluto denoting love at first sight, irresistible desires and powerful love impulses. If you are born around December 27, February 9, March 26, May 11, June 27, August 13, September 28-29 or November 13, this T-square will affect you directly.

This configuration is very powerful and life-changing because Uranus is at its stationing point ready to start its backward motion. Its influence will be felt out of the blue in an inescapable way.

If you are born around December 29-30, February 12, March 29, May 14, June 30, August 17, October 1 or November 16, a cold shower awaits you around July 11 and your love dreams and encounters may unexpectedly disappear. You suddenly feel alone, and lonely.

Unfortunately too, around July 13, Venus at 11° Cancer squares Saturn at 11° Libra, denoting more love's sorrow and separation from loved ones.

If you are born around December 29-30, February 12, March 29, May 14, June 30, August 17, October 1 or November 16, stress and tension mark July 19. There can be news about a separation (or even death).

Around July 22, Mars at 21° Gemini opposes the North Node of the Moon at 21° Sagittarius resulting in domestic issues. In the best case, you enjoy working at home, in other cases there are disputes with family members and/or neighbors.

However, if you are born around January 12, February 25, April 11, May 28, July 14, August 30, October 15 or November 29, the days around July 21-22 can be very rewarding. There is lots of creativity in the air, sudden enjoyable encounters and even love at first sight. Let the pleasant surprises come!

The Sun enters sunny Leo around July 23 bringing more self-awareness and a playful mood.

Around July 25-26 there may be illness and, possibly, separation from a male person if you are born around January 22-23, March 8, April 23, June 8, July 26, September 10, October 26 or December 10. If you are born around this day of July 26, the separation may happen anywhere during your whole (solar return) year though.

Around July 28, Venus too will enter Leo and add charm and more creativity and fun.

However, with Mercury entering its own sign Virgo on the same day, it's best not to be too critical and faultfinding.

Mercury at 0° Virgo opposes Neptune at 0° Pisces around July 29 resulting in chaotic experiences. You may feel deceived and/or confused.

If you are born around January 26-27, March 12, April 27, June 13, July 30, September 14-15, October 30 or December 14 there is sorrow and possibly hospitalization around July 29-30. You may feel dissatisfied and unhappy with the current events that are happening in your environment and surroundings.

If you are born around January 22-23, March 8, April 23, June 8, July 26, September 10, October 26 or December 10, you may be in a very creative and artistic mood around July 30. Enjoy music, photography, poetry or spiritual/metaphysical events and let your imagination flow.

What's New on Our Web Site?

There is only one major update to report; we added a new page about cute love quotes . The quotes are collected from all our Love Letters into a brand new 3rd love quotes page.

We alse updated different pages because of new legislation and rules that may affect web sites. Though the rules only apply to US web sites, we just found it appropriate to follow the guidelines as well.

Dividing The Houses

You may have heard about the decanates dividing the 12 zodiac signs of 30° into thirds of 10° each. Each decanate (one third of the zodiac sign of 30°) is ruled by the zodiac sign (and planet) associated with the other two signs of the triplicity.

Actually, we partly discussed this method on our Sun sign compatibility page

A lesser known method that is derived from this one states that you can also divide the 12 houses into thirds (it won't be thirds of 10° each though because the degrees of each third will depend upon the varying width of the house). You can divide each house into three equal parts in which the 1st part is associated with the 'cardinal' principle, the 2nd third is associated with the 'fixed' principle and the last third of the house is associated with the 'mutable' principle.

The cardinal principle carries a meaning analogous with angular houses or cardinal signs, the fixed principle with succedent houses or fixed signs and the mutable principle with cadent houses and mutable signs.

Planets or points situated in the first third take on the meaning of the cardinal principle, planets and points situated in the 2nd third take the signification of the fixed principle and planets/points posited in the last third have a mutable influence.

This method partly solves why a certain or specific house meaning (which can be quite broad) does not always manifest in the life of the native.

For example: in general, a planet in the 9th house may describe something about foreign countries, foreigners, higher education, philosophy or religion, travel, the siblings of the partner etc...

However, in the natal chart of any specific person, it's perfectly possible that (s)he will not travel or study, depending upon the position of the planet in the 9th house.

This method of house division, is a tool to find out which house meaning is likely to work out and which is not.

The cardinal principle is about:
  • action and initiatives (executing things)
  • the family, career, personality
The fixed principle is about:
  • stabilizing
  • resistance
  • the material world
  • love and friendship
  • desires
The mutable principle is about:
  • spreading, diffusing
  • moving and changeing
  • the cerebral (mental) world
  • sorrow and longings
  • secrets
Getting all the pieces together, we can find out which house division is of importance to one's love life in case a planet is posited in the division listed below:
  • the 2nd third of the 1st house is about love and relationships
  • the 3rd third of the 4th house is about sorrow through children and your love life
  • the 1st third of the 5th house is about births and the lover
  • the 3rd third of the 5th house is about playful love
  • the 3rd third of the 6th house is about sorrow related to the partner and work-related matters keeping the partner at a distance
  • the 1st third of the 7th house is about the 1st partner and the first impression/impulses when meeting
  • the 1st third of the 8th house is about shared resources and possessions of the partner
That's why, for example, people who have a planet conjunct the 7th house but still posited in the 6th house (in the 3rd third of the 6th house) experience longings for the partner and have to cope with love at a distance due to work-related matters.

Yet another method divides every single house in 12 parts, each part carries the meaning analogous with the common 12 houses. However, while this method finds its roots in Vedic Astrology, the delineations are not always easy to do. Also, dividing the house in 12 parts is time-consuming too because, as far as we know, no astrology software program exists to calculate the divisions for you.

The best way is to stick with the division in thirds, giving you in a blink of the eye extra information regarding your love life.
