Uranus being the first dominant in Lilia’s astral chart signifies that she is unique and unconventional. She is inventive and has a strong individualistic streak. She is also original, progressive and ahead of her time.
This planet symbolizes the principle of independence and self-sufficiency, as well as a principle of transformation. Its most striking characteristic is distance from others: the Uranian strives to stand out from the herd, distanced from structuring influences like convention, tradition, etc. Although this need to free yourself from the confines of convention, tradition, and family symbolizes an appeal for freedom and a desire to evolve beyond the bounds of physical limits toward a spiritual dimension, it may also correspond to a form of escape.
This is why Lilia sometimes needs to cut herself off from situations or relationships which feel stifling to her. Her intense fear of being swallowed up psychologically causes her to react to certain emotional demands by making herself remote or running away. Lilia needs a lot of space and frequent change. In a relationship, Lilia is seeking a certain degree of intellectual excitement. Without it, Lilia feels as though an unbearable, suffocating boredom sets in.
By refusing certain concessions to convention which are practically inevitable, Lilia may find herself in unpleasant situations. Finding an intelligent alternative to the routine set by the rigid forms of the past is extremely different from rebelling against any form of authority, in the settings of family, school, business, or society. One of the major problems Lilia has to solve is how to wield her freedom, in her emotional relationships, as well as her relationships with society.
Neptune is the second dominant in Lilia’s astral chart. In the following paragraph, we shall indicate the significance of this fact:
This planet is the quintessential symbol of individual receptivity and the fundamental reactions of the unconscious, including the collective unconscious. Opposed to Saturn, which is the principle of form, structure, and limitation, Neptune is a principle of dissolution. It concerns any effort to encompass the greatest variety of factors, any tendency to surround and blend all the narrow, individual points of view into a single, universal sea.
Psychologically, the Neptunian effect is expressed as an exceptional psychic flexibility and extreme pliancy. Lilia thus displays considerable receptivity and availability. Lilia feels a need for unity, a need to be related. Lilia is also deeply aware of the importance of dreaming, and, negatively, may be prone to delusions.
At certain times, Lilia is overwhelmed by a feeling of subtle confusion related to a need for “something else.” When Lilia’s well-being is disturbed this way, Lilia either yields to a sort of passive, apathetic dissatisfaction, or loses Lilia in the search for an imaginary world, perhaps to escape or plunge into bliss.
Lilia is sometimes captivated by a need for illusion; Lilia would like to experience change through the intermediary of events which are vaster than consciousness and would take Lilia far from routine and daily banality. Nevertheless, usually these fantastic dreams only make Lilia all the more painfully aware of the realities of everyday life. Lilia’s spirit and emotions emerge confused, and Lilia’s will is sometimes weakened.
Venus is the third dominant in Lilia’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 Lilia cannot conceive of living without a personal emotional relationship to someone else and sometimes fears solitude and the encounter with herself. Lilia is extremely attractive to others and is a creator and artistic genius who seems to imbue all she touches with beauty and harmony. Lilia’s artistic skills are obvious to the people around her and may be applied to career endeavors.
Pleasure, outings, seduction, love, and a thriving but sometimes superficial social life are the hallmarks of Lilia’s life.
The sixth house is an area of the sky which is especially important in Lilia’s theme, because it contains several planets, including the one which rules Lilia’s rising sign. In the following paragraph, we shall explain the general meaning of this fact.
