Jupiter being the first dominant in your astral chart indicates that you are a natural leader. You have a strong influence over others and are able to easily get people to follow your lead. You are confident and have a strong sense of self-worth. You are also able to take advantage of opportunities when they come your way.
In traditional astrology, Jupiter has always been considered as the Great Benefactor, the planet of luck and success such as personal fortune, social prominence, professional prestige, high political position. The Jupiterian bounty is peerless! In psychological terms, this planet has a much vaster significance. As the biggest planet in the solar system, it does preside over the process of personal expansion, interpreted to be fitting into society better and finding an appropriate match between one’s individual ambitions and the aspirations of the group.
This growth is accompanied by a feeling of self-confidence, which, in turn, buoys up an even greater externalization and expansion of the ego – hence the planet’s flattering reputation. But this snowball effect (Jupiter smiles and the world smiles with you), in which social skills magnify confidence and boldness reaps many rewards, betrays the negative side of Jupiter: extreme and excess.
Although grandeur was the characteristic of the “king of the gods,” errors of judgment, poor taste, and sometimes selfishness and pride are also likely to be part of the Jupiterian package. It is important to note that the extension of the ego may be a form of escape; it is tempting to hide behind one’s popularity and social success, which are fairly easy to obtain, rather than be really demanding with oneself. The Jupiterian has a tendency to amplify qualities out of compensation, to avoid seeing weaknesses and flaws. As a result, Garrett Gee must be aware of the risk of over-identifying with your social mask, which would cause you to neglect your inner self and deep nature.
Venus is the second dominant in Garrett Gee’s astral chart. This fact indicates that Garrett Gee is a very magnetic person who is able to easily attract others. Garrett Gee is also a very sensual person who enjoys the finer things in life.
In traditional astrology, Venus (or Aphrodite, her Greek name) is the planet of love. A source of universal attraction, this planet corresponds to the original urge which bonds two human beings together in love. Venus is thus both the magnetism which brings human beings together (not lust, which is symbolized by Mars, but the object which attracts lust) and the gift of love. This ambiguity is interpreted astrologically by the fact that Venus rules two houses of the zodiac. In Taurus, Venus symbolizes the awakening to bodily lust, and in Libra, the bond of marriage. As a result, Venus may take on very different aspects depending on the individual’s degree of awareness.
Likewise, this ambiguity explains Aphrodite’s equivocal conduct in Greek myth and her innumerable couplings and motherhood. Depending on the legend, she may embody brutal, passionate love (with Anteros), the wisdom of the heart which rescues from passion (Harmonia); she also becomes tenderness and purity (with Adonis), pure sexuality (with Eros), a transforming energy (with Vulcan), etc. Mistress of the Arts, she represents beauty, understanding, and peace.
Psychologically, individuals under the influence of Venus are struggling with their love instincts. This is why Garrett Gee cannot conceive of living without a personal emotional relationship to someone else and sometimes fears solitude and the encounter with himself. Garrett Gee is extremely attractive to others and is a creator and artistic genius who seems to imbue all Garrett Gee touch with beauty and harmony. Garrett Gee’s artistic skills are obvious to the people around Garrett Gee and may be applied to career endeavors.
Pleasure, outings, seduction, love, and a thriving but sometimes superficial social life are the hallmarks of Garrett Gee’s life.
Mercury is the third dominant in Garrett Gee’s astral chart. In the following paragraph, we shall indicate the significance of this fact:
According to Greek myth, Mercury (or Hermes, whose name derives etymologically from the piles of rocks which marked trails and guided travelers) was the messenger of the gods. He carried orders from Olympus to the mortals on Earth. The child of the illegitimate union of Zeus with Maia, Mercury was born “unknown to the immortal gods” and had to win his place among them by trickery, cleverness, and cunning. This is why he became the vagabond deity of travelers and wanderers.
He is the instinctive foe of the settled who see him as an outcast roaming on the outskirts of society: a pariah, a thief, and a swindler. As ruler of the sign of Gemini, the Twins, he symbolizes the brother—the alter-ego who teaches us as much as we teach him and is associated with adolescence, a period of intense intellectual discovery.
Mercury thus symbolizes lively, sparkling wit, mobility in any form, mental exchange, and interaction. As a result, a person strongly ruled by Mercury is quite likely to be clever and skillful.
If Mercury is “afflicted” in one’s chart, their intellectual velocity may sometimes become mere mental hyperactivity.
In any case, these skills are a great resource in the social realm. Garrett Gee communicates easily and effectively, orally or in writing. Garrett Gee’s ability to unite and transmit would be a good resource in diplomatic or commercial endeavors.
The seventh house is an area of the sky which is especially important in Garrett Gee’s theme. In the following paragraph, we shall explain the general meaning of this fact.
According to astrological tradition, the seventh house is related to marriage, contracts, social life, and worldly matters. It can be read for indications about a future marriage partner (the first), and business partners, your “objective allies” as well as your enemies.
Diametrically opposed to the Ascendant, the Descendant (the doorway into the seventh house) symbolizes everything that complements Garrett Gee or opposes him. This house thus represents the encounter with the other world, the non-ego. By extension, it embodies all the experiences which result from this encounter: interpersonal relationships, partnerships, marriage, rivalry, contracts, and conflicts, etc.
When this area is especially significant, it indicates that a great deal of Garrett Gee’s energy will be invested in the domain of relationships. Bonds, contracts, partnerships, and perhaps the disputes and conflicts which may arise from them will be prominent aspects of his success. However, he will evolve fastest and learn most from friendships and partnerships. Garrett Gee will have to learn to be objective.
His goal will be to master the interdependency of his relationships, and go beyond a tender and dutiful reciprocity to a truly beneficial mutual exchange and sharing.
By making a distinction between love (the fifth house) and marriage (the seventh house), traditional astrology shows us the difference between the projection of narcissistic self-love (simple self-expression) and the objective encounter with the other on a truly egalitarian basis. To reach the seventh house from the fifth, it is necessary to travel through the sixth: a reorientation of personal energies.
The fifth house is an area of the sky which is especially important in Garrett Gee’s theme, because it contains several planets, including the one which rules Garrett Gee’s rising sign. In the following paragraph, we shall explain the general meaning of this fact.
