IN THE TWELVE HOUSES
in the First House has a tendency
to spread sunshine over the child's home and make the early
life happy. It gives an amiable character so that the person
is well liked because of his social nature and friendly disposition.
It brings out the love of music, art and a desire for pleasure.
This is what may be called "a lucky position" for it makes
the person very attractive to all with whom he or she comes
in contact and in that way it tends to give general success
in life. It is also very good for the general health.
in the Second House is an indication of financial success
in life. People with Venus in this position are usually very
popular and are thus helped by their friends to lucrative
positions. At the same time this position makes the person
very wasteful and prodigal so that it tends to make him spend
more then he earns. The money is usually squandered on pleasure,
dress and ornaments for self by a woman and for an amour by
a man, and not infrequently leads to abuses which undermine
the health. This position also shows gain by dealing in things
ruled by Venus, such as dress goods, jewelry, music, etc.
in the Third House has a particularly beneficial effect
upon the mind, making the person cheerful, optimistic and
inclined to look at everything from the bright side of life.
It gives a love of music, art, literature and everything that
has a refining influence, and unusual facility for expressing
one's self in a happy, appropriate manner, either in speech
or writing. It gives love of travel; the person will enjoy
himself on his journeys and benefit by them. It also makes
relations with brothers and sisters and neighbors and the
people in one's immediate environment congenial.
in the Fourth House shows happy conditions in the home,
particularly in the latter part of life. It also indicates
that an inheritance may be left to the person and that if
he owns houses or lands he will gain much by them.
in the Fifth House makes the person unusually affectionate
and as a result he or she usually experiences a number of
love affairs all of which run their courses smoothly. In indicates
that the marriage will be fruitful and production of lovely
and loving children. It is a fortunate position for teachers
and people connect with education institutions, also for those
engaged in publication of literature and for gain by speculation
in stocks or similar securities.
in the Sixth House gives the person faithful servants
who will work for his interest if he is an employer. If he
is an employee, it will make him well liked by his employers
and fellow-workers. It is a fairly good position for health
provided the person does not abuse it. That is to say, the
constitution is harmonious, but not very strong. If the health
is guarded with care it will remain in good condition for
life, but a very little abuse may turn the scales the other
way and make the person an invalid.
in the Seventh House is one of the surest signs of domestic
felicity. It signifies an early marriage and an increase of
prosperity after that event. If the person finds it expedient
to enter into partnership on a business basis the presence
of Venus tends to make this relationship harmonious and beneficial.
It is also a good sign that if litigation seems necessary
some way will be found to settle the matter without actual
rupture. This position is good for actors, singers, and others
whose calling brings them before the public in a vocal capacity
for it ensures a kind and sympathetic reception on the part
of their audience.
in the Eighth House will bring gain by marriage, partnership
or legacy if it is well aspected, but if it is afflicted it
brings loss and disappointment in love, or an extravagant
marriage partner, and legal trouble over a will.
in the Ninth House is a very fortunate position if Venus
is well aspected, for being so highly elevated here it exercises
considerable influence in life and makes the disposition exceedingly
kind, sympathetic and helpful so that by these qualities the
person becomes much esteemed and sought after, particularly
in charitable or religious work, for this position also brings
out the devotional side of the nature. It gives a love of
music, art and drama as well as everything that has an influence
for soul upliftment. Whenever the person journeys from one
place to another for gain or for pleasure. Venus in the Ninth
House will smooth the path before him and make his trip thoroughly
enjoyable. If Venus is afflicted in the Ninth House the person
will long to do or to be all the foregoing things, but will
find it exceedingly difficult, if not impossible to accomplish
in the Tenth House is one of the best signs of general
success in the life when well aspected. The person who has
this position becomes very popular, particularly with the
opposite sex, and will rise in the social scale through marriage.
It gives an ability to avoid trouble in life and extract from
it all the pleasure there is in every situation. Comfortable
financial circumstances attend upon the person all through
life and foster a general attitude of optimism. When Venus
is afflicted in the Tenth House the person is looked down
on by those in his social environment and though he tries
to ingratiate himself with those who are in the charmed circles,
he will find himself left with snubs and insults. A hasty
or ill- considered marriage is apt to make matters worse and
bring him farther into disrepute, as a scapegrace.
in the Eleventh House if well-aspected brings to the person
hosts of friends who are willing and anxious to aid him in
the realization of his hopes, wishes and desires, but it depends
upon the nature and character of the sign wherein Venus is
placed as well as on the strength of the aspects whether they
will be able to do so or not. For instance, if Venus is in
the Eleventh House in Aries or Scorpio, one of the martial
signs where she is weak, and aspected only by sextiles from
Mercury and the Moon, very little help can be expected of
her compared to what she will give if she is in her own signs,
Taurus or Libra, and aspected by trines from the Sun and Jupiter.
In the case first cited, the friends drawn to the person may
be ever so sincere in their wish to help but will not have
the ability. In the latter case they will exert powerful influence
and will accomplish wonders. If Venus is afflicted in the
Eleventh House it is very often found that the person attracts
friends who impose upon him and use him for their own objects
and when they have so used him to the fullest extend and he
cannot serve their purpose any longer they throw him aside.
in the Twelfth House if well-aspected indicates that the
person will benefit from the things signified by this House,
viz., occupations connected with prisons, hospitals or charitable
institutions, or by work in a chemical laboratory or by some
such secluded occupation where he does not come in touch with
the public. It also favors study and practice of the occult
and gives a tendency to secret, clandestine love affairs which
will probably run smoothly if Venus is well-aspected, but
if she is weak by sign, or afflicted in the Twelfth House
she will cause trouble through jealousy, divorce and scandal,
or sickness in confinement on account of over- indulgence
of the passions, particularly if Venus is in Scorpio which
governs the generative organs, or in Taurus which gives the
same effect by reflex action, where it signifies self-abuse.
