Venus is the first dominant in Lisa Linh’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 Lisa cannot conceive of living without a personal emotional relationship to someone else and sometimes fears solitude and the encounter with herself. Lisa is extremely attractive to others and is a creator and artistic genius who seems to imbue all she touches with beauty and harmony. Her 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 Lisa’s life.
Mars is the second dominant in Lisa Linh’s astral chart. This fact indicates that Lisa Linh is a natural leader and has a lot of energy and drive. She is also very independent and has a strong sense of self.
In the Greek tradition, Mars or Aries was the god of war. Traditional astrology associates him with the element fire, the color red, and the taste of bitterness. Although it also symbolizes the elder brother in the cosmic family, it is more likely to be associated with declared enemies or adversaries. Martian morphology is typically virile, angular, and athletic and corresponds to aggressive, domineering, masculine behavior. Likewise, Mars is usually associated with rage, its resultant brutality, and male destructiveness and domination.
Psychologically, Mars figures in any situation of conflict, opposition, and confrontation. Martian symbolism intervenes to separate, oppose, and decide and corresponds to duels, war, and any situation in real life which involves confronting an obstacle. Individuals who are greatly influenced by Mars are typically direct and straightforward—either unabashedly extroverted or furiously introverted. They are extremely active and extremely emotive. Their purpose in life seems to be inextricably mingled with a combat against an unacceptable situation, a challenge which they either issue or are forced to accept.
Mercury is the third dominant in Lisa Linh’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. Lisa communicates easily and effectively, orally or in writing. Her ability to unite and transmit would be a good resource in diplomatic or commercial endeavors.
The sixth house is an area of the sky which is especially important in Lisa Linh’s theme, because it contains several planets, including the one which rules her rising sign. In the following paragraph, we shall explain the general meaning of this fact.
According to tradition, the sixth house is related to health and Lisa Linh’s relationship to her body. It is thus related to illness, hygiene, nutrition, and bodily care. More specifically, this area rules the various failures which Lisa Linh encounters and accumulates in the course of her 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 any individual to examine their ego, in order to consciously reorient and transform the behavior they have unconsciously adopted. Should Lisa Linh 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 her ego are obstructing the natural flow of her life.
The difficulty Lisa Linh faces concerns her personal growth as a member of society. It shows that she is not yet ready to approach others appropriately, that she must tone down an inflated ego or beef up an insecure, weak ego. The importance of this area in her theme indicates that experiences related to work, duty, health care, self-transformation, and the continuous harvesting and re-planting of her energies and ego are fundamental and may have a major impact on her 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 fourth house is an area of the sky which is especially important in Lisa Linh’s theme. In the following paragraph, we shall explain the general meaning of this fact.
