The Offensive and Defensive

michael-mroczek-195361.jpg

Inspired by this quote by Linda Goodman

Where Aries and Scorpio rules in your natal chart shows where we are defensive and offensive. Aries shows where you are defensive, for Aries rules the defensive part of combat with Mars. Scorpio shows where you are offensive, for Scorpio rules the offensive part of combat with Mars. In a sense, Aries can often show where you feel vulnerable while Scorpio can show where you feel powerful potential.

Looking where Mars and Pluto are in your chart can often explain why we protect ourselves, whether it be through offense or defense.

If you have an Aries/Libra or Taurus/Scorpio interception, you may feel as if you have a weakness. With an Aries/Libra interception, you may feel defenseless and vulnerable with no walls while with a Taurus/Scorpio interception, you would feel powerless and weak with no weapons. To find your source of protection and power, you would have to look at your Mars and Pluto, depending on which sign is intercepted. With duplications, you may feel as if you have too much protection. With an Aries duplication, you can feel highly defensive with many walls to protect you while with a Scorpio duplication, you can feel highly offensive with too many weapons at your disposal.

“You want an award for that?”

samuel-zeller-118922.jpg

Where Leo falls in your houses can show where you want validation from yourself and others. This can manifest in expressing yourself in a certain way, and then expecting others to praise you in return. Where your Sun is on your natal chart will show why you want that validation. Of course, aspects to the Sun would diversify the expression.

There’s nothing wrong with being validated or getting validation. Just remember that validation is given from the heart (the body part that Leo rules ironically,) not from obligation!

Leo Ruling the Houses

Leo ruling the 1st House: You want people to validate you when you act like yourself, whether it’s good or not.

Leo ruling the 2nd House: You want people to validate you when you treat yourself, whether it’s needed or not.

Leo ruling the 3rd House: You want people to validate you when you talk and share your thoughts, whether it’s needed or not.

Leo ruling the 4th House: You want your family members to validate you, whether you were helpful or not.

Leo ruling the 5th House: You want people to validate you for your hobbies, whether you’re good at them or not.

Leo ruling the 6th House: You want people to validate you for your everyday activities, whether it should be a given or not.

Leo ruling the 7th House: You want people to validate you when you talk to them one-on-one, whether they want to or not.

Leo ruling the 8th House: You want people to validate you when you reveal your secrets, whether they wanted to hear it or not.

Leo ruling the 9th House: You want people to validate you when you express your beliefs, whether they agree with you or not.

Leo ruling the 10th House: You want people to validate you in public, whether they want to or not.

Leo ruling the 11th House: You want people to validate you for being a good friend, whether you were a good friend or not.

Leo ruling the 12th House: You want people to validate you on things you are not aware of and/or hide, whether they know it or not.

Sun in the Houses

Sun in the 1st House: You want people to validate you because you believe that the validation will make you more aware of yourself.

Sun in the 2nd House: You want people to validate you because you believe that the validation will bring you confidence and security.

Sun in the 3rd House: You want people to validate you because the validation will make you smarter and more intelligent.

Sun in the 4th House: You want people to validate you so that your family will appreciate you and/or so that you get closure from the past.

Sun in the 5th House: You want people to validate you because you need that validation to help you drive your creativity, hobbies, and romantic relationships.

Sun in the 6th House: You want people to validate you so that you can use the validation to help you with your daily routine and everyday activities.

Sun in the 7th House: You want people to validate you so that it can help you accommodate to others and enhance your interactions with people.

Sun in the 8th House: You want people to validate you so that it may provide a chance for you to express something you’ve hidden so that you can be intimate with others.

Sun in the 9th House: You want people to validate you so that it can help you orient your beliefs and open your mind to the world.

Sun in the 10th House: You want people to validate you so that it can help you improve your public image and reputation.

Sun in the 11th House: You want people to validate you so that you can maintain a good status in your friend circle and community.

Sun in the 12th House: You want people to validate you because you believe it will help you find who you truly are.

Enemies.

candle-335965_1920.jpg

So in astrology, the 11th House represents your friends and community, and the 1st House represents yourself. The 4th House represents your family. It’s almost like astrology has something to say about the various types of people we encounter in life.

So where the hell are your enemies?

Information about your enemies can be found in the 7th and 12th House.

7th House – For the sake of understanding, many people like to mention that the 7th House is the house of relationships, and nowadays, relationships usually have a romantic connotation that comes with it. While it’s very true that the 7th House can show information about our more committed relationships, The 7th House actually rules over more than just romantic relationships, and enemies are included. The enemies in the 7th House are the people you meet at first, either thinking they’re great but in the end, you can’t stand them. In other words, these people are your open enemies. You know these people don’t work well with you. Looking into the sign that rules the 7th House and the planets in it can give you insight about your open enemies. It’s also important to note that the Descendant is the cusp of the 7th House. The Descendant is the opposite of your Ascendant, which is YOU. Oppositions can cause attraction, but problems which can manifest in many relationships, hence the 7th House, the House of romantic all relationships.

12th House – If the Descendant is across from your Ascendant, in full view for you to see, then the 12th House rules your secret enemies since it is behind your Ascendant, in other words, you. These are the people you don’t see sabotaging you. These are the people who will subconsciously hurt you. The 12th House is the house of secrets and the subconscious after all. These are the people you won’t know you clash with until it’s too late, or the people you clash with and you just don’t know why. Again, checking the sign at the cusp of the 12th House and the planets in the House will also give characteristics of your secret enemies.

✏ your work ethic

laptop-1209008_1280.jpg

You’re probably procrastinating while you’re reading this post. But that’s ok. However, have you ever wondered what your natal chart says about your work ethic? Do you procrastinate, or do you finish everything on time? Do you overwork, or do you work too little? How do you work? What’s your ideal work environment? All of these questions can be answered in the following places on your chart:

  • The 6th House. The 6th House is THE House for work. To specify, everyday work that you need to do everyday. This House can give insight to how your morning routine goes, and how you study before a test. This House shows how you are when you’re working at a workplace. This house also gives insight to your relationships with your coworkers, if you’re curious. Pay attention to the sign ruling this House and the planets that could be inside. If you do have planets, pay attention to the the aspects if they’re making any.
  • Having your Moon, Venus, maybe Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune in the 6th House can show a person who can procrastinate when these planets are channeled in a negative light or if they’re making harsh aspects to other plants. With the Moon in the 6th, you can struggle to work because how and when you work depends a lot on how you feel. With Venus in the 6th, you can become lazy and incompetent in your work when you only focus on your own comforts rather than your responsibilities and only the presentation, not the content of your work. Jupiter in the 6th can only be problematic if Jupiter is making a hard aspect to another planet. Jupiter can exaggerate, and too much of anything is a bad thing. With Uranus in the 6th House, while you can be creative and quirky in your work, you also can struggle to fit into deadlines and structures in your work. With unpredictability comes a lack of planning, and with a lack of planning comes procrastination. With Neptune in the 6th, the small details essential to make a work ethic effective is confusing to you. You do not know how you actually work, and since you lack awareness, you lack the tools to evaluate your work skills. Neptune, like Venus, is also associated with laziness.
  • Mercury. Mercury rules your mind. It rules how you think, and the arguments you create in your head. It shows how your thoughts flow when you’re working. Look at the house and sign your Mercury’s in, and check the aspects made to it to get a good idea on how you think while you’re doing your work.
  • Mars. Mars rules your actions. It rules how you move, and how you actually put things into action. Look at the house and sign your Mars is in, and check the aspects to get a good idea on how you do your work.
  • Venus. Venus can show what you aim for your work in a shallow sense. Venus can show how you want your work to look, and it can rule how you want your work to be presented to others. Look at the house and sign your Venus is in, and check the aspects made to it to get a good idea on how you want your work to look like.
  • Virgo. The House that Virgo rules is the the area of life that we are more likely to put a lot of work and effort into. The work and effort put into that House can be detail-oriented, and tedious. The work you can put in that certain House can have a “worker bee” feel to it.
  • Note that any discordant aspects between these planets can show a struggle in how you work. For example, with a hard aspect with Mars and Mercury, your mind will want to work one way, but your actions will want to work in a completely different way, which can make work difficult and disharmonious.

Saturn: Tough Love

saturn-equinox-735347_1920.jpg

Saturn is that one planet that can make people cringe, or beam with adoring eyes. But anybody who’s studied astrology can tell you that Saturn is one of the most important planets in astrology. Saturn represents many things in a natal chart:

  • Your father – Saturn can tell you various qualities about your father through your sign, and especially house placement and aspects!
  • Challenges in life – Where Saturn is located shows where you will have challenges in your life. The sign can also give insight, but it is often generational. The challenges you face due to Saturn are also karmic. Saturn wants to teach you something in this life because you probably didn’t do so well in a past life.
  • Radical change – Every 30 years, Saturn returns to ruin your life teach you a very important life lesson and to rebuild your life to have a fresh start. This lesson is called your Saturn Return. It is said to mostly affect the house your Saturn is in. Saturn Returns are known to be painful, but also life-changing in a good way.
  • Seriousness – The house, in other words, the area of life your Saturn is in is the house where you will take very seriously. This seriousness can also manifest quite literally! Saturn can also show the responsible side of even the most immature individual!

So how does Saturn exactly affect your natal chart? Saturn can affect you in the following ways according to the house it’s in:

1st House: Your father will be significant in establishing your identity. You could have issues figuring out who you are, and this is a serious issue for you. You could look serious literally and take on qualities of a Capricorn Rising – quiet, reserved, and responsible. Those with Saturn in the 1st House can be seen as intimidating and put-together.

2nd House: Your father will greatly affect your finances which can manifest in many ways. He could also be very significant in your self-worth. Money and values is something you take very seriously. You could also have challenges with money. Those with Saturn in the 2nd can be seen as stingy, but you’re thrifty and responsible with your money.

3rd House: Your father will greatly significant in how you think and communicate with others. People could find you intimidating when you talk. Your siblings could have Saturn/Capricorn influences. You may face struggles with your inner thoughts, and you take them seriously. Those with Saturn in the 3rd like to have serious discussions.

4th House: Your father will be very important in your family life. Your family and upbringing will be very important to you. You may face struggles within your family. You may have had to take on responsibilities in your family. Those with Saturn in the 4th House may have grown up in a cold, harsh environment that very much represents the outside world.

5th House: Your father will be very significant in your hobbies, children, and perhaps your casual dating life. You tend to have a serious outlook on your interests and you can even push those interests away to finish your work rather than have fun and play. Those with Saturn in the 5th could have fathers who’ve had multiple affairs.

6th House: Your father will be important in your everyday life, health, and work. You tend to take your health and work seriously, but you also tend to overwork. Perhaps you put too many things on your plate. You could struggle with your health. Those with Saturn in the 6th House tend to be very disciplined with their habits.

7th House: Your father will be significant in the relationships you have. Those with Saturn in the 7th tend to go for a person who has qualities of their father. You will also take your relationships seriously, but you will also struggle to find a relationship that will work for you. People with Saturn in the 7th House usually marry later in life.

8th House: Your father will be significant in the major life changes you will go through in life. You tend to be serious about topics that are shoved under the rug such as sex, life/death, and more. Those with Saturn in the 8th can struggle going through major changes in life. You tend to be serious handling any joint finances with others.

9th House: Your father could be significant in your beliefs and education perhaps, but he could also be busy, constantly traveling. With Saturn in the 9th House, you tend to struggle finding a belief system that works right for you. You are very serious about your beliefs, and you’re quite responsible when you’re traveling far from home.

10th House: Your father could strongly affect how you see the world, your image, and your career. Those with Saturn in the 10th House tend to be successful later in life. You want to be seen as a very serious, responsible person, and you could try to find positions of power in your job. You want to be independent and practical in the world.

11th House: Your father could be strongly involved in a community or is very involved in the betterment of humanity. In your circle of friends, you may be seen as the responsible, intimidating one, the person to go to for the “serious” things. You could struggle with finding your true friends and the right community, or you could struggle learning to be a good friend.

12th House: Your father could’ve been absent, which can manifest literally, or maybe in parenting. It also implies an abusive use of substances. With Saturn in the 12th, people in public could struggle taking you seriously. You are only truly serious when you’re by yourself or when you’re vulnerable. You tend to like working behind the scenes.

✧ gift-giving guide ✧

gift-1420830_1920.jpg

Want to give your friend a gift, but you’re stumped on what they want? Maybe the stars can help you out. If you’re struggling to find the perfect gift and you want to use astrology, here’s some things you can consider on your friend’s natal chart. Just wanted to make this post before the holiday season.

  1. Dominant Planet – A individual’s dominant planet is arguably the most important planet on their chart. Sure, there’s other planets that can influence an individual, but a person’s dominant planet does a good job of generally defining and giving some a good picture of what they’re like. Knowing their dominant planet and archetype can help you determine what they want. Remember to also look at their aspects! Example: If your friend’s dominant planet is a Capricorn Moon in the 10th House, perhaps your friend wants a gift that will be emotionally stimulating, but also practical and useful for their career.
  2. Dominant House – Just like a dominant planet, an individual’s dominant house will show where the person is most likely going to utilize any gifts they receive. Knowing which House is their dominant House can be very helpful since the ruler of that House gives you a vibe of what they exactly want, and knowing where an individual is most likely to use their gift can help narrow down what you want to get for them. Be sure to check for planets and aspects. Example: If your friend’s dominant House is the 5th House, your friend is most likely to use his/her gifts while they’re trying to channel their creativity or through their hobbies. Having a dominant 5th House in Pisces with Pluto for example can mean that a person will most likely want a gift that can help them channel their artistic, creative hobbies. But, due to Pluto they’ll also want a gift where they can truly master and investigate their hobbies and keep their passions a secret.
  3. Venus – Venus is not just the planet that shows our romantic tendencies, it’s also the planet that shows what we’re exactly attracted to. Check the sign, house, and important aspects being made to an individual’s Venus to get a good idea of what they’re attracted to. Example: If your friend’s Venus is in Aries in the 11th House, your friend is attracted to gifts that he/she can use on his/her own and give him/her instant gratification. He/she will most likely want a gift that can help him/her lead a group of friends or community.
  4. 2nd House – The 2nd House is commonly the house we look at when we want to see our spending habits. It would make logical sense that whatever you buy are things that you like. It would be a good idea to see if there’s any planets in the 2nd House and the aspects being made to it. Example: If your friend’s 2nd House is ruled by Libra and it has Uranus in it with a conjunction to Jupiter, your friend probably likes to buy things that are used to be aesthetically pleasing like makeup. However, with Uranus making a conjunction to Jupiter, your friend could buy exaggeratedly strange makeup or buy her makeup unpredictably and perhaps excessively due to Jupiter.

Those are just a few indicators and ideas on what you could buy for your friend, if you’re stumped on gift giving. If you’re wondering why I didn’t list other planets that could be important (especially Sun and Moon) it’s because I decided to lump them into the dominant planet category to make this post more concise.

Hopefully after reading this post, you’ll know exactly what to get! Good luck!

Interceptions: A Guide

key-1030724_1920

Some background information:

Before I get into the topic of interceptions, how interceptions come to be requires some background information about natal chart systems. In the Placidus house system, every sign takes up 30 degrees in a chart, but houses can vary in size, being very large or small. House sizes vary more as the you go farther from the equator. With that being said…

What is an interception?

Due to the varying sizes of the 12 Houses, an interception happens when a sign is entirely engulfed inside a house. When this happens, a sign isn’t present at the cusp of the house, meaning that certain sign will not rule over the house.

image

So if you look in this chart here, you can see that Leo and Aquarius are both engulfed in a house, the 1st and 7th House. When you have an interception, you will always have two signs intercepted, and those two signs are sister signs. The same also applies to houses. You will always have two houses intercepted. There is no such thing as having only one sign intercepted or having only 1 house intercepted. You will also notice that Mars and Uranus, NOT Neptune are intercepted.

So I have an interception. What does this mean for me?

Having an intercepted sign means that this sign has no rulership over a house. Every sign is supposed to rule a house, but this wouldn’t be the case if you had an interception. An interception shows a lack of balance in your chart, and you’re missing your intercepted sign in particular. It shows no development in your sign. Some say it is a karmic issue where you have to make effort to bring that intercepted sign in your life properly, but whether you believe in karma or not, an intercepted sign can give you a lot of struggles in your life. These struggles vary greatly depending on your sign and where the house is. With an interception, the missing sign feels like a gaping hole you are trying to fill because you were born with it. Literally.

Interceptions in the Signs

The best way to think about interceptions is considering the sister sign pairs and what they represent, with their unique characteristics. Being aware of each sign’s distinct lessons and qualities will help you understand what the effects of an interception will have – when those lessons and qualities are absent from your life.

Aries//Libra – Aries is the sign of assertion, the sign of taking and independence while Libra is the sign of equality, fairness, and teamwork. With Aries intercepted, it will be hard for you assert yourself and to be independent. Action is difficult for you. Perhaps it’s difficult to find your identity, and you might struggle knowing who you are. When you do try to do things, it just happens wrongly and awkwardly. You don’t have a sense of who you are. And since you don’t know who you are and what you have and lack, the effects of a Libra interception will come into play. If you don’t know who you are, how will you work well with others? How will you work well with others, when you struggle to work well with yourself? With a Libra interception, you will struggle to equalize giving and taking – either taking too much or taking too little. You lack the balance Libra represents. You will struggle working and compromising with the people you face in your life, and relationships were out of the picture at this point, due to the fact that you don’t work well with others.

Taurus//Scorpio – Taurus is the sign of love, beauty, security, and stability, the sign of standing your ground when times get tough while Scorpio is the sign of transformations, and taboos, the sign of looking into the dark insides of your soul, embracing everything within. With Taurus intercepted, it’s hard for you to feel secure. This insecurity can manifest in a lack of material comforts like food and sleep or perhaps a lack of self-esteem. You may feel unloved or ugly, or you never got the love and confidence that you needed from others. Due to this, you could find yourself hoarding or spending impulsively, trying to fill the void you’re uncomfortably familiar with. Since there’s an excessive action of filling, and a lack of emptying, the effects of a Scorpio interception will come in. Due to the excessive fills and gains of your life, you will be devastated the moment you face a loss. You will be so involved in your security, you will never get out of your comfort zone to embrace solitude, and the dark sides of you that you try to push away due to a lack of self-esteem.

Gemini//Sagittarius – Gemini is the sign of the mind and intellect, the sign of learning while Sagittarius is the sign of learning and traveling, the sign of teaching. When Gemini is intercepted, your mind is perhaps choked and bound by the people around you. Curiosity killed the cat, and the cat in this case is certainly you. The answers to your questions were never answered, and your thoughts were usually suppressed or not taken seriously. With having thoughts concealed, the effects of an intercepted Sagittarius will follow. When you have Sagittarius intercepted, the ability to explore is taken away from you. Since you’ve never been able to express your thoughts, you never got to learn from your mistakes. It’s hard for you to open your mind and take risks and chances, since your mind was never appreciated in the first place. And when you go into the world with such a mind, you can struggle seeing other perspectives and views because you never got to express yours. It’s hard for you be optimistic during hard times.

Cancer//Capricorn – Cancer is the sign of the home and emotions, the sign of nurturing while Capricorn is the sign of the world and ambitions, the sign of responsibility. When Cancer is intercepted, it can difficult for you to express your emotions in a smooth, effective manner. Many times, your emotions can come out in explosions – problematic outbursts. “Home” is an elusive item you’ve never really had. You might’ve not considered the place you lived at as home. There was a lack of comfort and safety that you deeply wanted. Constantly lacking nurturing and care will cause the effects of a Capricorn interception. With Capricorn intercepted, it can be hard for you to chase your dreams and to be responsible. Since nobody comforted you or showed they believed in you, you feel powerless to the world. The world feels cold like the world you were raised in and you will struggle to make a mark in the world. Since you never felt accepted at your “home,” you really don’t know where you belong. There are so many things you want to do, but you feel like you aren’t capable.

Leo//Aquarius – Leo is the sign of creativity and excitement. It is the the sign of shining under the spotlight, and showing your talents to the world. Aquarius is the sign of humanity and innovation. It is the sign of doing the quirky, showing your progress in humanity to the world. When you have Leo intercepted, you can find yourself never being praised for your talents. You could feel like you didn’t have a right to show yourself off, and perhaps you felt like you had nothing to show off after awhile. And with constant discouragement, your creativity runs low. After all, why be creative with your ideas when it’s going to be crushed? Being stuck in a creative block and wanting to hide from the spotlight will transition over to the effects of an Aquarius interception. With an Aquarius interception, you will struggle to show the weird, quirky side of yourself since you didn’t get praised for showing the best sides of yourself. If anything, you want to be “normal” so you don’t get called out. However, everybody has their quirks, and yours can come out quite unexpectedly.

Virgo//Pisces – Virgo is the sign of order and routine. It is the sign of your daily reality and work. Pisces is the sign of your dreams and spirituality. It is the sign of fantasies. When you have Virgo intercepted, order goes out the door. The only routine that works well for you is your own, even if it ends up not being conventional for the long run. Perhaps people tell you that your way isn’t the right way, or perhaps you do that to others. There is however an aura of criticism and harsh judgment regardless. Being broken in routine and criticized will transition to the effects of a Pisces interception. When Pisces is intercepted, you will struggle to see reality and fantasy. You will struggle to see what’s real. You might find yourself with impractical dreams with impractical plans due to your Virgo interception. After all, if you struggle to make order in your reality, how will you make order in your dreams? A Pisces interception will also bring a disorganization and confusion to you. You can easily be deceived by others or yourself.

Interceptions in the Houses

The houses where the interceptions are located in are the areas of life most affected by your interceptions.

Interception in the 1st/7th House – You will see your interception manifest in your identity (1st House) and all of your relationships (7th House.)

Interception in the 2nd/8th House – You will see your interception manifest in your self-worth and money (2nd House) and major life changes and secrets (8th House.)

Interception in the 3rd/9th House – You will see your interception manifest in how you think and communicate (3rd House) and how you teach and believe (9th House.)

Interception in the 4th/10th House – You will see your interception manifest in your home and upbringing (4th House) and your interactions with the world and career (10th House.)

Interception in the 5th/11th House – You will see your interception manifest in your creativity and hobbies (5th House) and your friends and community (11th House.)

Interception in the 6th/12th House – You will see your interception manifest in your everyday work and health (6th House) and your subconscious and spirituality (12th House.)

Interceptions in the Planets

Not only can signs and houses be intercepted, planets can be intercepted too! If you have a planet that happens to have a sign that’s intercepted, chances are, the planet’s intercepted! However, you always should check your natal chart and see if the planet’s actually intercepted.

Having a planet intercepted can be quite significant, especially if one of personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and/or Mars) are intercepted, considering that they’re a strong part of who you are. When you have a planet intercepted, there is little to no development of that planet in your life. And often, people with intercepted planets deeply (perhaps subconsciously too) want to channel such planets when they’re blocked.

Sun Intercepted – The Sun rules over Leo, and it’s the planet we go to when we want to know our ego, how we are overall, and what talents we may have. With an interception, all of this is blocked and muted. A person with an intercepted Sun can suffer from not knowing their potential and talents. You may have numerous impressions from people that don’t describe who you really are. You are likely to be introspective.

Moon Intercepted – The Moon rules over Cancer, and it’s the planet we go to when we want to know our emotions and nurturing. With an interception, those with their Moon intercepted can struggle handling their emotions. They can feel like their emotions are locked away, and when it’s going wild, they can only sit and watch. Perhaps having your Moon intercepted means you’re stuck in the past, constantly to your past to be cared for.

Mercury Intercepted – Mercury rules over Gemini and Virgo, and it’s the planet we go to when we want to know our mind, our logic, and how we express our thoughts. With an interception, people with an intercepted Mercury can be misunderstood. It’s hard for them to clearly express their thoughts, and it’s difficult for many to understand their different, complex mindsets.

Venus Intercepted – Venus rules over Taurus and Libra, and it’s the planet we go to when we want to know what we love, and what we attract. When an interception, Venus intercepted natives can struggle to enjoy what they love around others. What attracts them can be different from others. Love can be an idea that doesn’t cross their mind, or an idea they can struggle to reach.

Mars Intercepted – Mars rules over Aries, and it’s the planet we look at when we want information on our energy, passions, and drive. With an interception, a Mars intercepted native could be scared of asserting themselves or it’s just difficult to do things. Anger and energy are items they can’t control, so they can express such things in an erratic way.

Jupiter Intercepted – Jupiter rules over Sagittarius, and it’s the planet we look at for luck, success, and beliefs. When this planet is intercepted, luck and success are things the native can be unaware of. Luck and success can come in weird ways. The native can struggle to really believe in something, and their morals can be quite nebulous and hard to form.

Saturn intercepted – Saturn rules over Capricorn, and it’s the planet we look to for what we are responsible and serious about. With Saturn intercepted, it can be hard for the native to be responsible and practical. Maybe they have random spurts of practicality. Natives with this interception can also be very harsh on themselves when they make mistakes.

Uranus Intercepted – Uranus rules over Aquarius, and it’s the planet we look to for what we want to change, and what we’re innovative in. It’s certainly hard for a person with a Uranus interception to truly fit in. They can struggle to find the right people to be with, due to their interesting and unique quirks. It can be hard to a Uranus intercepted native to bring their weird side out.

Neptune Intercepted – Neptune rules over Pisces, and it’s the planet we look to for spirituality and creativity. When Neptune is intercepted, it can be hard for a native to see personal boundaries. They struggle to find the boundaries of what’s respectful to themselves (and others!) and what’s real and what’s not. Perhaps they’re creative in ways people can’t understand.

Pluto Intercepted – Pluto rules over Scorpio, and it’s the planet we look at when we want to know what we’re secretly good, yet obsessive at. Those with a Pluto intercepted could feel powerless to the world around them. They don’t really know what to deeply seek for, and if they do, it’s hard for them to do so. Obsessions and secrets are usually repressed in this person.
