Saturn is the first dominant in UnspeakableGaming’s astral chart. In the following paragraph, we shall indicate the significance of this fact:
Saturn is known as the “greater benefic” in astrology, and its placement in the first house of the chart indicates that UnspeakableGaming is likely to experience good luck and fortune in their lifetime. This placement also suggests that they are likely to be intelligent and hardworking, with a strong determination to succeed.
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 UnspeakableGaming is developing, it may overcome or overcompensate its identity complex and gradually acquire a strongly structured personality, or, conversely, remain in a state of immaturity which would probably be detrimental to its destiny.
Mars is the second dominant in UnspeakableGaming’s 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 UnspeakableGaming 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 moon is the third dominant in UnspeakableGaming’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 men. 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 UnspeakableGaming’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 their nature, the mother figure may correspond to their biological mother, a grandmother, or a woman who cared for them in infancy and childhood.
When UnspeakableGaming reaches adulthood, this mother-figure and all the emotions and bonds associated with them 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 they 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 their past, they may be unwilling to detach themselves from it and embark on their life as an individual in the here and now. They still identify somewhat with their inner child and may display a child’s capricious behavior, indulging in moodiness and indecision. Their passivity may make them easily influenced, their sensitivity makes them subjective, and they hesitate to open up and lay their soul bare. In their daily life, psychic activity will rule. Their imagination, memory, sensitivity, sensation, and sentiment nearly overwhelm their psyche.
The eighth house is an area of the sky which is especially important in UnspeakableGaming’s theme, because it contains several planets, including the one which rules UnspeakableGaming’s 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 UnspeakableGaming to keep any of the wealth generated by the group’s activities for its own personal benefit. UnspeakableGaming 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 UnspeakableGaming’s astral chart, it may encounter one of these issues. It will be vital for UnspeakableGaming to become truly conscious of what is at stake in its partnerships. As a result, it will have to evaluate the wealth it acquires as a result of its relationships and measure the power conferred upon it by its participation in intimate, social, or professional relationships.
The seventh house is an area of the sky which is especially important in UnspeakableGaming’s theme. In the following paragraph, we shall explain the general meaning of this fact.
