Sazan Barzani is the first dominant in your astral chart. In the following paragraph, we shall indicate the significance of this fact:
As one of the planets historically thought to be on the outer limits of the solar system (until the “modern” planets were discovered), Saturn has always been associated with the moon, itself a peripheral heavenly body because it belongs to Earth and not to the solar system. Therefore, both Saturn and the moon are aspects of a protection principle (the moon encompasses the earth in the same way as Saturn and its rings encompasses the solar system). Like the moon, Saturn rules a security/insecurity dialectic, but where the moon’s concerns the private, intimate aspects of the individual, Saturn influences social and collective security.
Saturn can be thought of as the polar opposite of the moon (the archetype of the mother, but also of the child, and therefore related to orality). The god Saturn ate his children in order to reign and thus, represents the archetype of the mother (motherhood), the grandmother, and the sage (wisdom). The domination of Saturn thus indicates a maternal complex or, at least, an issue related either to the biological mother or to the symbolism of motherhood. This influence may result in a problem of identity and difficulties in aging which will make themselves evident in personal crises at every passage of this planet, every seven years—thus at the age of 7, at 14 or 15, and 21, 28, etc.
Depending on the psychological context in which Sazan Barzani is developing, Sazan Barzani may overcome or overcompensate Sazan Barzani’s identity complex and gradually acquire a strongly structured personality, or, conversely, remain in a state of immaturity which would probably be detrimental to Sazan Barzani’s destiny.
Neptune is the second dominant in Sazan Barzani’s astral chart. This fact indicates that Neptune plays a significant role in Sazan’s life.
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. Sazan Barzani thus displays considerable receptivity and availability. Barzani feels a need for unity, a need to be related. Barzani is also deeply aware of the importance of dreaming, and, negatively, may be prone to delusions.
At certain times, Barzani is overwhelmed by a feeling of subtle confusion related to a need for “something else.” When Barzani’s well-being is disturbed this way, Sazan either yields to a sort of passive, apathetic dissatisfaction, or loses Barzani in the search for an imaginary world, perhaps to escape or plunge into bliss.
Barzani is sometimes captivated by a need for illusion; Sazan would like to experience change through the intermediary of events which are vaster than consciousness and would take Barzani far from routine and daily banality. Nevertheless, usually these fantastic dreams only make Barzani all the more painfully aware of the realities of everyday life. Barzani’s spirit and emotions emerge confused, and Barzani’s will is sometimes weakened.
Sazan Barzani is the third dominant in your astral chart. In the following paragraph, we shall indicate the significance of this fact:
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.
The ninth house is an area of the sky which is especially important in Sazan Barzani’s theme. In the following paragraph, we shall explain the general meaning of this fact.
According to traditional astrology, this area is ruled by Sagittarius, the ninth sign of the zodiac. Its chief attributes are moral and political judgment (laws, ethics, and politics as a means of improving society), dreams, distant journeys, studies such as religion, philosophy, priesthood, spiritual guidance, and wisdom.
More specifically, we can interpret astrology as demonstrating that the life and consciousness of an individual gravitate around two fundamental principles: the self (the Ascendant) and others (the Descendant).
In life, everything begins in us and proceeds outward, but it is reflected, experienced, and renewed by our relations with others. Indeed, once Sazan Barzani grows beyond the subjective field of their ego and reach adulthood, they must be able to adapt and modify their abilities in such a way as to fulfill a specific function in the outer world. The reference framework they use to judge their worth is not only their personal life, but the huge complex of values, principles, and laws which regulate life in a community.
The ninth house rules this much broader framework, which includes law as well as philosophy, psychology, science, religion, mysticism, occult studies, etc. An individual with a great deal of activity in this area of their astrological chart will probably feel a strong desire for personal expansion. An idealist, Sazan Barzani will seek out experiences which reveal knowledge and meaning to them and give them a better indication of their purpose in living. The difficulties they are likely to face will be hidden behind what appears to be success. They may arise from your expansiveness, which is sometimes uncontrollable, or disproportionate.
Although at the outset, your ambition and desire for personal development are a source of strength, they later become powerful enough to cut you off from yourself. If you identify too strongly with the flattering self-image reflected by the community, you may gradually begin to neglect your personal essence. Because this perverse tendency to confuse form with function is reinforced by modern society’s emphasis on packaging and advertising, you are liable to lose yourself completely. A state of expansion could be expressed as a psychic inflation (a loss of oneself in an abstract ideal, or a delusion of grandeur) or as a partial loss of yourself due to over identification with your personal mask (or persona).
This house thus reveals that nothing is more difficult than failure in a period of success. Ambition, which may be a compensatory personal over evaluation, sometimes transforms understanding, a principle of cohesion and love, into personal power.
The seventh house is an area of the sky which is especially important in Sazan Barzani’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 you or opposes you. 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 your 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 your success. However, you will evolve fastest and learn most from friendships and partnerships. You will have to learn to be objective.
Your goal will be to master the interdependency of your 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 sixth house is an area of the sky which is especially important in Sazan Barzani’s theme, because it contains several planets, including the one which rules Sazan’s rising sign. In the following paragraph, we shall explain the general meaning of this fact.
