THE 8TH HOUSE: YOUR SECRET POWER

However, this should not be confused with the secrets of Neptune or the 12th house as that is where the dissolution of the Ego takes place. The 12th house is not a powerhouse like the 8th, it is traditionally known as the house of your self-undoing where your secrets can potentially defame you, which is very different from the 8th house where your personal power hides. The 12th house is the intermediate state between life and death, and as such it has no interest in exerting power or control over this world. Neptune is about letting go. Pluto is about control.

Cancer

The glyph of Cancer is made up of two crescents and two circles facing inward, representing The Crab. This symbolises a tough hardened shell protecting a vulnerable centre.

Pisces

As the last of the 12 zodiac signs, from the heavenly plane of Aquarius, Pisces represents the return to the oceanic womb.
Pisces represents endings but also the seeds of new beginnings.

Elements and Modes

What is the significance of Fire, Earth, Water and Air? What are the Modes of the star chart?

Aquarius

Aquarius is represented by two airwaves in motion, symbolising the waters of life being poured from the water bearer’s urn…

Neptune

A Neptunian experience is to be in this realm, where you either drift, float lost or are swept away. It could be through music, drugs, dancing, inspirational creation, idealism or a spiritual quest.

Capricorn

Capricorn’s glyph represents the sea goat, with the V-shape symbolising its horns and the S-shape its fish tail. The sea goat illustrates human cultural achievement rising from the depths of the cosmic ocean.

Saturn

Saturn is made of the cross of matter on top of a downward-pointing crescent of receptivity. Together these indicate the importance of heritage and past experience as pathways to maturity, structure and stability.

Pluto

Pluto is made up of the circle of spirit, half-in and half-out of an upward facing crescent of receptivity on top of the cross of matter. Combined, these elements represent the containment of the individual who is receptive to life’s mysteries and able to ground them into reality.
