Charles Windsor & Diana Spencer: Part IIIPart Two -- Planets in Houses
This section is concerned with where the planets of one partner fall in the houses of the other, also known as comparative house placement...
Charles Windsor's Planets in Diana Spencer's Houses
This is the house of self expression. The sign on the cusp of this house is called your rising sign or Ascendant. It shows your self image, the face you show the world and how others see you. The image you present can either be quite close to or very different from the inner you, depending on whether your Ascendant is in a sign that is similar or different in characteristics to the signs your Sun and Moon are in. When the planets of your partner or another fall into this, your most personal house, you will relate to the energies of that person, represented by those planets, in a very personal and immediate way; there may be a kind of instant recognition between you in these areas. For instance, if the Mercury of another person (which rules communications, short trips, thoughts, worries, and work, among other issues) falls into your first house, you may find that you instantly recognize, and/or identify with, the ways that person communicates or the ideas he or she has.
Mars in House 1
This is probably a very energizing relationship for both of you, especially the first house person. There is a tendency to compete with each other and to challenge each other. This can be a very passionate partnership but may be tinged with selfishness. Look at Part One of your synastry interpretation to see whether Mars makes any conjunctions, squares or oppositions to the first house person's Sun, Moon, Saturn, or Uranus. If so, your relationship may be quite contentious at times, and you may be less considerate of each other's feeling than you ought to be.
Jupiter in House 1
The Jupiter person can have a positive impact on the first house person's self-image, optimism and confidence. The Jupiter person is likely to show generosity, tolerance, and occasionally, indulgence toward the first house person. If there are harsh major aspects from Jupiter to the first house person's chart, the Jupiter person may encourage the first house person in unrealistic or overly idealistic pursuits, or may be overly tolerant of the first house person's bad habits.
The fourth house rules the home, real estate, your mother (and your mothering instincts), as well as home, domestic and family situations in general. It is also the house ruling your final resting place. Those whose planets fall in your fourth house will affect you on a deep level, and may arouse your protective and nurturing instincts. If the Sun, Moon, Venus, Jupiter or Ascendant of another falls in your fourth house, you may make good housemates or domestic partners.
Moon in House 4
This is a particularly favorable placement for those living under the same roof. There is probably a strong identification between you on an emotional level, with the potential for great empathy, or even an intuitive link. You can nurture each other and be protective of one another, but you can also exacerbate each other's moodiness. You're likely to depend on each other for emotional security and may retreat intoa cocoon together -- in a kind of "you and me against the world" response -- when things aren't going your way.
The seventh, also known as the Descendant, is the house of marital and other partners. It is exactly opposite the first house, which represents you. As the old saying goes: opposites attract. The seventh is also the first of the houses above the horizon in your chart, and is the beginning of that part of the chart which represents your dealings with the public. When the planets of another person are in this house, the energies of those planets will have an impact on your seventh house issues. For instance, if someone's Moon is in your seventh, that person's emotional make-up and nurturing instincts are likely to be in sync with those you would want in a partner.
Uranus in House 7
Often found in exciting, electric, but less than stable relationships. Your relationship is likely to involve some sort of untraditional or unusual circumstances. This placement is typical in shotgun weddings and Mexican divorces. For the relationship to work best, you must give each other plenty of freedom and accept each other's quirks and differences.
The eighth house deals with a host of intense and weighty issues: death, obsessions, repression, jealousy, taxes, joint resources, inheritances and other people's possessions. It also represents what you want or need sexually. When someone else's planets fall in your eighth house, the energies of those planets will have an impact on how you think, feel and act concerning eighth house issues. If, for instance, your rich old Great-Uncle Harry's Jupiter falls in your eighth house, he might bequeath you a generous inheritance in his will.
Saturn in House 8
This placement offers both positive and negative potentials. It can either show that together, you can make careful, conservative, practical financial decisions that result in a slow but steady growth of your joint resources, or it can show that fears or bad timing result in financial loss. There is a slight danger of sexual coldness of one partner toward the other. There is also a slight danger of excessively materialistic attitudes in the partnership. If Saturn makes harsh major aspects to planets in the eighth house, there is some danger of miserliness, or of one partner controlling the joint resources to the point of limiting or disallowing the other's access.
Pluto in House 8
This is Pluto's natural house and its position here intensifies its effect. This placement can indicate that relationship concerns itself with Plutonian issues including joint resources, sex, death and inheritance, and transformation. There is likely to be a lot brewing beneath the surface with Pluto in this position, and there may be some subtle, unacknowledged power struggles as well.
The ninth house is directly opposite the third in your chart and represents a higher order of some of the issues governed by the third house. Foreign travel or other long trips, higher learning, philosophy, culture, religion, law and book publishing are all matters related to this house. When the planets of another person fall into your ninth house, the energies of those planets can affect how you respond to ninth house issues. For instance, if a friend's Uranus, the planet of innovation and surprises, falls in your ninth, he or she might introduce you to a new philosophical system or a new way of thinking about situations or events; or he/she might be the perfect traveling companion for an adventurous trip.
Venus in House 9
This is likely to be a relationship where each of you feels warmth, tolerance and generosity toward the other. The Venus person can help soften and add gentleness to the ninth house person's opinions and beliefs. The ninth house person can help expand the Venus person's scholarly and cultural horizons. You tend to make good traveling companions and can enjoy pleasant romantic adventures together.
Neptune in House 9
This placement can indicate a deeply idealistic relationship, with shared beliefs and mutual spiritual growth . You can gain inspiration and insight from exploring the inner and outer worlds together.
Achievement, professional life, authority, status and ambition are all governed by the tenth house, also known as the Midheaven. This is also the house that represents your father, just as the fourth house represents your mother. (Please note: in some families, where the mother was the dominant parent, or the father was the greater nurturer of the two, the house rulership works better in reverse, with the fourth representing the father; the tenth the mother. Usually, however, the traditional rulership works best.) When the planets of another person fall in your tenth house, the energies of those planets will affect the way you respond to tenth house issues. For instance, if someone's Mars, the planet of competitiveness and aggression, falls here, you might find yourself in professional competition with him or her.
Mercury in House 10
This placement tends to be favorable for business partnerships. The Mercury person's words and ideas are likely to have an impact on the tenth house person's career or status, and the tenth house person can help the Mercury person get greater recognition for his or her ideas. If there are harsh aspects from Mercury to the tenth house person's chart, there is a slight danger that the Mercury person's words will have a negative effect on the tenth house person's ambitions, or that the Mercury person will be overly critical of the tenth house person's career, professional achievements or ambitions.
Friends, acquaintances, associates, associations, clubs, and virtually any other group you feel a part of are all matters related to the eleventh house. This is also the house governing your hopes, wishes and professional values (personal values are matters of the second house). When someone else's planets fall here in your chart, the energies of those planets will affect your reactions to eleventh house issues. For instance, if a friend's Pluto, the planet of power, falls in your eleventh, your association with that person can potentially bring you greater power and control.
Sun in House 11
No matter what the basis of this relationship -- sexual, business, family or other -- with this placement, you will also be good friends. The Sun person can have a positive effect on the eleventh house person's ability to achieve his or her hopes and wishes. You may also be involved in groups, associations or organizations together.
