The moon is the first dominant in Joshua Weissman’s astral chart. In the following paragraph, we shall indicate the significance of this fact:
As the second light of the solar system, the moon has always been associated with the sun in the minds of Joshua Weissman. The moon and sun are the primordial cosmic couple. This satellite of the earth, which mysteriously waxes and wanes, has been compared to the eternal feminine principle, the mother hovering over Joshua Weissman’s infant’s cradle. Psychologically, the moon is thus symbolic of the mother and the mother image. This figure is a primordial element in the psyche of each individual. Depending on Joshua Weissman’s nature, the mother figure may correspond to Joshua Weissman’s biological mother, a grandmother, or a woman who cared for Joshua Weissman in infancy and childhood.
When Joshua Weissman reaches adulthood, this mother-figure and all the emotions and bonds associated with her may be transferred to something else: a spouse, a companion, an institution, a church, corporation, or political movement, a cult, etc. In short, any individual or structure likely to take on the mother’s duty of caring for and nurturing the vulnerable aspects of an individual.
To be more down-to-earth, the mother figure corresponds to the habits which were learned and then definitively incorporated into the individual’s identity as Joshua Weissman gradually became acculturated and progressed toward social independence. As a result, a strongly “lunar” personality often finds it difficult to adapt and is uncomfortable outside the secure setting of familiar routines.
Closely tied to Joshua Weissman’s past, Joshua Weissman may be unwilling to detach himself from it and embark on Joshua Weissman’s life as an individual in the here and now. Joshua Weissman still identifies somewhat with Joshua Weissman’s inner child and may display a child’s capricious behavior, indulging in moodiness and indecision. Joshua Weissman’s passivity may make Joshua Weissman easily influenced, Joshua Weissman’s sensitivity makes Joshua Weissman subjective, and Joshua Weissman hesitates to open up and lay Joshua Weissman’s soul bare. In Joshua Weissman’s daily life, psychic activity will rule. Joshua Weissman’s imagination, memory, sensitivity, sensation, and sentiment nearly overwhelm Joshua Weissman’s psyche.
Venus is the second dominant in Joshua Weissman’s astral chart. In the following paragraph, we shall indicate the significance of this fact:
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 Joshua Weissman cannot conceive of living without a personal emotional relationship to someone else and sometimes fears solitude and the encounter with himself. He is extremely attractive to others and is a creator and artistic genius who seems to imbue all he touch with beauty and harmony. His artistic skills are obvious to the people around him and may be applied to career endeavors.
Pleasure, outings, seduction, love, and a thriving but sometimes superficial social life are the hallmarks of Joshua Weissman’s life.
The sun being the third dominant in Joshua Weissman’s astral chart indicates that he is a gifted individual who has the ability to make things happen. He is a natural leader and has the ability to inspire and motivate others. He is also a very creative person who is able to see the world in a unique way.
As the heart of the solar system and the gravitational center of the travels of the earth and the other planets, the sun is the primordial light, the source of all warmth and life. From the dawn of humanity, it has been worshipped. It has symbolized the absolute power kings and despots yearn for and emulate. The sun king, the nucleus of society, embodied a principle of cohesion and harmony.
Various subordinates—aka planets—revolved around it. In terms of psychological symbolism, the sun corresponds to the center of an individual, the factor that rules your psyche. Its luminous aspects are usually associated with knowledge and consciousness. As a creator of life, it is related to the image of the mother and the influence of motherhood on an individual’s consciousness and ideals. As a result, the sun’s position in a birth chart always indicates the way in which an individual will relate to your goals and ideals, what your ambitions and aspirations might involve.
A person whose chart is strongly “solar” usually identifies very positively with motherhood. Joshua Weissman’s personality is friendly, energetic, and creative, with high ideals and a firm determination to accomplish them. Joshua Weissman takes his own superiority and authority over others for granted, and Joshua Weissman has a natural ability to command the attention and admiration of an audience. Joshua Weissman is a born leader who enjoys being in the limelight and may behave somewhat theatrically or with dramatic exaggeration.
Joshua Weissman has definite artistic leanings. The sense of Joshua Weissman’s ideals is evident to Joshua Weissman and may lead Joshua Weissman to be somewhat self-focused. If ill-directed, Joshua Weissman’s deep aspirations may lead to such faults as egotism, selfishness, or greediness for power.
The sixth house is an area of the sky which is especially important in Joshua Weissman’s theme. In the following paragraph, we shall explain the general meaning of this fact.
According to tradition, the sixth house is related to health and Joshua Weissman’s relationship to his body. It is thus related to illness, hygiene, nutrition, and bodily care. More specifically, this area rules the various failures which Joshua Weissman encounters and accumulates in the course of his evolution, which are sometimes expressed as physical disorders like aches and pains, digestive problems, etc.
This area should thus be associated with the need faced by Joshua Weissman to examine his ego, in order to consciously reorient and transform the behavior he has unconsciously adopted. Should Joshua Weissman refuse this reorientation process or try to flee from it, physical discomfort or suffering may set in as a sort of signal – the proof that the impurities of his ego are obstructing the natural flow of his life.
The difficulty Joshua Weissman faces concerns his personal growth as a member of society. It shows that he is not yet ready to approach others appropriately, that he must tone down an inflated ego or beef up an insecure, weak ego. The importance of this area in Joshua Weissman’s theme indicates that experiences related to work, duty, health care, self-transformation, and the continuous harvesting and re-planting of his energies and ego are fundamental and may have a major impact on his destiny.
Traditionally, astrologers associated this house with humbly serving others. We interpret this to mean that a person who has not consciously begun the work of reorienting their personality may be doomed to remain the slave of thankless tasks, to toil at subordinate functions deprived of privilege.
The fifth house is an area of the sky which is especially important in Joshua Weissman’s theme, because it contains several planets, including the one which rules his rising sign. In the following paragraph, we shall explain the general meaning of this fact.
