Jupiter being the first dominant in Nicole Row’s astral chart indicates that she is very optimistic and hopeful. She has a great sense of humor and is always looking for the silver lining in every situation. Nicole is also very generous and always willing to help others. She is confident and always ready to take on new challenges.
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, Nicole Row must be aware of the risk of over-identifying with her social mask, which would cause her to neglect her inner self and deep nature.
Uranus is the second dominant in Nicole Row’s astral chart. In the following paragraph, we shall indicate the significance of this fact:
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 Nicole Row 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. Nicole Row needs a lot of space and frequent change. In a relationship, she is seeking a certain degree of intellectual excitement. Without it, she feels as though an unbearable, suffocating boredom sets in.
By refusing certain concessions to convention which are practically inevitable, Nicole Row 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 Nicole Row has to solve is how to wield her freedom, in her emotional relationships, as well as her relationships with society.
Neptune is the third dominant in Nicole Row’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. Nicole Row thus displays considerable receptivity and availability. Nicole Row feels a need for unity, a need to be related. Nicole Row is also deeply aware of the importance of dreaming, and, negatively, may be prone to delusions.
At certain times, Nicole Row is overwhelmed by a feeling of subtle confusion related to a need for “something else.” When Nicole Row’s well-being is disturbed this way, Nicole Row either yields to a sort of passive, apathetic dissatisfaction, or loses Nicole Row in the search for an imaginary world, perhaps to escape or plunge into bliss.
Nicole Row is sometimes captivated by a need for illusion; Nicole Row would like to experience change through the intermediary of events which are vaster than consciousness and would take Nicole Row far from routine and daily banality. Nevertheless, usually these fantastic dreams only make Nicole Row all the more painfully aware of the realities of everyday life. Nicole Row’s spirit and emotions emerge confused, and Nicole Row’s will is sometimes weakened.
The eighth house is an area of the sky which is especially important in Nicole Row’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, this house is associated with the sign of Scorpio, and thus the themes of death, metamorphosis, and sexuality. It is also related to birth and initiation, and, in more practical terms, inheritances, legacies, and debts. More specifically, the area is related to the idea of partnership resources. It raises such issues as the management of a collective heritage and the administration of assets acquired in association with another person, and the sharing out, psychologically and materially, of these resources in marriage and business partnerships.
As a result, three interdependent but fundamental factors inherent to initiating any mutually beneficial partnership are emphasized: trust, management, and responsibility. Obviously, a partnership devoid of trust is dangerous, if not impossible.
Only when true trust and mutual confidence are established can a cooperative activity yield profit. The next step is managing the profit (or loss) resulting from the cooperative enterprise: sharing it out equally between the partners, or re-investing it in view of making the enterprise more profitable. The responsibility of the manager (and any participant who is a co-manager) is obviously engaged, because it would be unethical for Nicole Row to keep any of the wealth generated by the group’s activities for her own personal benefit. Nicole Row must also be responsible enough not to flee in case of difficulty.
Sexuality, which is an asset or resource of the couple, can be thought of according to the same dynamic. If sexual problems arise, if they are not due to physiological problems, they are always related either to a loss of mutual confidence, to mismanagement of the physical and psychological exchange, or to an insufficient sense of duty on the part of one of the partners.
Due to the significance of this area in Nicole Row’s astral chart, she may encounter one of these issues. It will be vital for Nicole Row to become truly conscious of what is at stake in her partnerships. As a result, Nicole Row will have to evaluate the wealth she acquires as a result of her relationships and measure the power conferred upon her by her participation in intimate, social, or professional relationships.
The first house is an area of the sky which is especially important in Nicole Row’s theme. In the following paragraph, we shall explain the general meaning of this fact.
