The Asteroid Goddesses: Harbingers of Dynamic Transformation

In order to transcend inertia and propel oneself towards cycles of evolutionary advancement, momentum is a necessary catalyst for transformation. In personal transcendence, momentum is accomplished through the compression of emotions, where intensification signals the first phase of metamorphosis. The asteroid goddess indicative of this stage is Vesta, whose dynamism gravitates introspectively as a source of self-containment. On the psychological level, one experiences Vesta as a state of emotive hindrance, projecting experiences of separation, loss, grievance, desperation, pain, frustration, failure, and rejection.

Through dissolution or the second phase of the transformation process, Pallas Athene serves as the governing asteroid of creative energy. Here, the limiting structures of compressed emotional energy are shattered by Vesta, resulting in various forms of termination concerning relationships, family, jobs, perceptions, or lifestyles. During this transition, the individual experiences a degree of disassociated energy, none of which is yet coalesced. Existing, then, in a dimensional state of uncertainty, one is liable to experience panic, anxiety, or chaos. On the contrary, one may also sense the exhilaration of exploring new prospects and visions.

With the renewal stage being the third phase of transformation, Juno’s asteroid brings urge toward unification, maneuvering the self from exclusion to association. Here, one directs and coordinates the liberated energy to manifest new forms, facilitating growth expansion and continual revelation. During this phase, one’s interpersonal life and its facets (vocations, relations,  communities, educational pursuits) are ameliorated and replenished.

We now arrive at Ceres, the firstly discovered and most grandiose of the asteroids. Astronomers theorize that Ceres was once the core of a planetary form prior to its explosion and formation of the asteroids. Ceres symbolizes the matrix out of which the other asteroids are orchestrated. Through mythology and Eleusinian Mysteries, the goddess Ceres represents the process of birth, death, and renewal as depicted by all of the asteroids. In other words, Ceres provides the infrastructure for the complete process of transformation.

Dominance of asteroid themes in a natal chart delineate a personality which attains the effective ability to employ the power of the transformative principle. Often such individuals serve as catalysts for the shattering of crystallized, antiquated structures, in order to replenish and regenerate society with effective solutions. As a result, the lives of such people are demarcated by individuality crises that challenge traditional views of societal consciousness.

Lilith: Depersonalization Through the Astrological Houses

Lilith’s astrological house placement signals to degrees of personal immaturity. Here, superficial expectations create distortions that impede clarity of judgement. In Lilith’s particular house placement, sophistication of impersonality must be mastered through a series of self-centered denials. In essence, depersonalization must be infused in one’s character to successfully triumph over childish, ego-driven dependencies that restrict the evolution of emotional maturity.

The primordial goal of Lilith through the astrological houses is the establishment of depersonalization. Lilith’s placement focuses on one’s lower nature, where one must resolve the self-centered influences of that specific house in order to progress through mental creativity and spiritual advancement. Succinctly, through the houses, Lilith signals to the life area where one must employ emotional maturation. An often appalling, degrading, or abrupt experience will continue to surface until one consciously witnesses and identifies the level of one’s own naiveté. According to the extent of one’s inability to remain objective, Lilith symbolizes the eroding conduit that forces an elevated mental and spiritual application.

One encounters self-reflection of narrowing emotionalism, rendered through situations or people that force a sense of objectivity. Not unlike Saturn (and Lilith shares many commonalities with Saturn), Lilith can appear to leave one embittered and yet, far more aware of emotional dependencies that are at the root of one’s inability to master the lessons of a particular house.

Through Lilith’s forced depersonalization arrives an expansive reservoir of intellectual ability, creativity, and independence. Through altruistic concentration on elevated interests or goals, emotional order is established in Lilith’s house of occupancy. Lilith dominates the intellectual soul, elevated instincts, and demonstrates distortions when there is subjective personalization, passivity, narcissism, concern with self-image, and all other channels of expression which are not truthfully and unequivocally dedicated to objective intellectual and emotional maturity.

Lilith resonates favorably within areas that circumvent the personal ego, including selfless work and services. When angular in a chart or otherwise prominent, Lilith provides an extraordinary quality not unlike that of Neptune. It illustrates an illusive quality to a house that, not unlike Neptune, will corrode the negative and transcend to lucidity all that remains positive or selfless in motivation.

Beyond Lunar Limits: Lilith as a Conduit for Impersonal Transcendence

The usual discourse on Lilith begins with its discovery, followed by the emphasis on raw  feminine energy, coupled with empowering exertion. As a result of the growing interest in Lilith, both mythologically and as an astrological point, this post intends to forego the above and instead, focus on Lilith as means of attaining personal transcendence through the implementation of detached consciousness.

Representing an imperceptibly lunar penumbra, Lilith denotes the scope of human consciousness that, compared to the Moon, remains far less investigated and acknowledged, due to both lack of comparative popularity and insufficient research. While the Moon resides over the emotional soul, Lilith governs a desire that is more creatively sophisticated in nature. Comparatively, Lilith is a mode of transmission for the discovery and detached influence of Uranus as well as Pluto’s transformative ray. Therefore, as a surge of both Uranus and Pluto, Lilith creates sudden compulsive shifts, an effect dependent on one’s ability to successfully depersonalize. As the Moon personalizes, Lilith depersonalizes, resulting in a degree of sophisticated awareness.

Lilith’s exertion in one’s life emphasizes an impersonal approach occupying the mental, artistic, socially productive, and vocational fields. In natal charts, this is demonstrative as Lilith’s positive modus operandi. However, emotional immaturity in the house of Lilith represents denial as a form of discipline. Additionally, while the Moon supports subjective motivation, any impetus less than impersonal /social leads to a lack of Lilith’s level of manifestation. When activated in accordance with realistic and impersonal approaches, there is a dynamic release of intellectual, creative, or aesthetic energy.

In contrast to our Moon, Lilith appears non-reflective to our mundane awareness and is more psychological in action. Lilith’s inclinations involve one’s social orientation, one’s universal concerns, and one’s vocation, comparatively objective in nature as opposed to the subjective Moon. Once unleashed, Lilith’s energy, like that of Pluto, tends to be either positive or negative in its extremities. When the motivational factor is egotistical, Lilith manifests as frustration, shock, seemingly cruel experiences, and insurmountable acts of rebellion. Regarding selfish desire, Lilith produces unreasonable fears, since the intellectual/ creative soul is disassociated from sentiment. Lilith is anathema to subjective devotion. Its positive fruition is noted in depersonalized orientation, creative detachment, and intellectual awareness.

Minerva: Uncloaking Pluto’s Higher Octave of Cosmic Consciousness

Pluto, the most cryptic of all planets, signals an impenetrable force on the surface level that incessantly functions within the depths of one’s unconsciousness. Simultaneously, its energies govern both one’s undercurrents as well as one’s elevation. If activated without awareness, operating silently and unbeknownst to the self, Pluto can explode as a surge of violence. Notably, long before the culmination of a destructive apparition, said energy is soundlessly rustling in obscurity.

Minerva, considered the highest aspect of Pluto, behaves in polarity to Pluto. As the goddess of wisdom, Minerva transforms the self from a core, visceral foundation and arrives as inconspicuously as a new day’s dawn. The planet alters the self with pronounced permanence, entirely changing one’s state of awareness. Ultimately, Minerva molds the self as a silhouette salvaged from the depths of putridity. In essence, its planetary vestige is one of grace and regeneration.

In continued correlation, Scorpio, ruled by Pluto, is a sign of dichotomy. In its negative manifestation there is emotive turbulence and ruinous undercurrents, coupled with conflict and instinctual self destruction. Pluto’s negative rays can be the most vicious of any planetary radiations now known to man. (Hickney, Pluto or Minerva) Not unlike Saturn, here growth arises as a result of painful experiences. However, its positive manifestation, again, symbolized by Minerva, unites the head and heart. In this elevated energy, Pluto introduces illumination and cosmic consciousness. In essence, this alludes to the astrological transformation from scorpion to phoenix, rising from the ashes of its relinquished self.

Because the eccentric effects of Pluto’s orbit are difficult to interpret from a generational perspective, the house where Pluto is located in a natal chart demonstrates where and how an individual best meets the challenges of humanity and group consciousness. In essence, it delineates the manner in which one can best aid or hinder the progress of human evolution.  Furthermore, Pluto’s house position in the birth chart reveals the old ego which is still active and embodies a considerable degree of psychic energy. As long as this energy remains unconscious and inextricably infused with antiquated patterns of life, it promotes compulsive and obsessive patterns of thought and behavior in our conscious existence. Therefore, Pluto in the natal chart houses symbolizes the subconscious psychic impressions resulting from past desires and actions. Additionally, it can be deduced that, like Saturn, we are most intensely meeting our karmic debt in whatever house Pluto is situated. While Saturn reveals specific karmic tests and needs for self-discipline, Pluto’s house position shows the field of experience wherein we are locating our old self and past desires.

There is an undeniable flow of concentrated energy in the house position of Pluto because it is here that one immediately connects with one’s deep reservoir of ardent power. This degree of immense power can be used willfully and ruthlessly (not unlike the energy of Mars), or it can be mobilized as productive will and mental power in efforts to elevate one’s exalted qualities. Pluto’s house placement will also demonstrate the area of life where one will attempt to impose one’s power on others, while instead, being capable of harnessing that same energy to generate progress in self-development.

The Warrior and the Gatekeeper: Understanding Hard Aspects Between Mars and Saturn

Because of their inherently incompatible natures and in order to properly harness their respective energies, one must learn to understand the relation between the malefic planets of Western astrology. For the purpose of this entry, the discussion will pertain, specifically, to the correlation and hard aspects that occur between Saturn and Mars.

In general, aspects between Saturn and Mars imply the necessity to align antithetical energies, namely, discipline with impulse, fear with courage, and control with assertion. Individuals with strong Saturn-Mars aspects will naturally gravitate towards scenarios where their proportion for strength, stamina, and overall endurance will be examined and extended, often to extremities involving near-shattering depths. Situations requiring endurance may manifest as emotional, physical, or mental, relative to other chart factors such as house placement, other corresponding planets, sign, and even degrees.

Conjunctions and hard aspects between Saturn and Mars are often associated with conflicting forces, often vacillating between two extremes: use of irrevocable self-will, determination, and aggressive domination versus paralyzing inability. Furthermore, the more more pugnacious presentations of Saturn-Mars occur when, in an individual’s chart, Venus appears debilitated, weakly positioned or in harsh aspect(s), and overall, difficult to access.

Individuals with Saturn-Mars aspects will often find themselves in positions where they need to exert a certain level of discipline and/ or control over a situation. Furthermore, hey may find themselves in situations where they are either being dominated or are themselves exerting a sense of domination over others. Ultimately, this merging signals a lesson in authoritative equilibrium: contacting one’s source of inner authority without the need to seek supremacy or resignation from others.

At best, Saturn-Mars delineates a sense of vigilant bravery and the inclination to master the will in order to achieve and overcome obstacles. This aspect is suitable for situations that require courage, resilience, endurance, order, and control. The Saturn-Mars can take advantage of every moment in the implementation of a task.

The hard aspects of Mars-Saturn are summarized below.

Mars conjunct Saturn: Immense lust for power and immeasurable ambition. Ultimate power is denied as a result of the abuse of power in past lifetimes.

Mars square Saturn: Struggle between instinctual desires and the soul. Consciousness is transformed as a result of suffering and hardship. Tendency towards criticism and cruelty must be mended. There is an aspect of self conquest.

Mars opposition Saturn: Pull between action and inertia. Difficulty reconciling the masculine (Mars) with the feminine (Saturn) principles. There is a need to focus on the house placement of Saturn in order to bring the circumstances of that area to fruition and correctly channel said energies. (Hickey, Astrology, A Cosmic Science)

With soft aspects (as well as no aspects) between Saturn and Mars, the individual will find it easier to merge these two energies. However, it takes struggle to establish psychological growth, and the reconciliation of difficult aspects signals a greater potential for development.

The Door Between Identity and Freedom: Saturn in the 12th House

As the final spectrum of the astrological sphere, casting the Ascendant’s proverbial penumbra, the twelfth house encapsulates both endings and beginnings. It symbolizes the end since it necessitates a sacrifice of the conscious personality as a distinct and separate form of identity. Likewise, it alludes to beginnings because it references past causes which, operating from both birth and the subconscious, pulls one to situations  requiring the transformation of one’s former selves into unified consciousness. In brief, the twelfth house signals isolation, surrender, and identity dissolution. While seemingly simple a concept to grasp, however, the significance of Saturn, when placed in the twelfth house, undergoes one of the most misunderstood placements in astrology. Ultimately, such a theme remains yet to be satisfactorily explained, comparable in riddle to the very nature of man.

Saturn in the twelfth house (and to a lesser extent, in Pisces) is cumbersome from an identity perspective because, while Saturnian energies are aimed  at self-preservation and defense, they are here rendered inefficacious. One may learn through personal helplessness (in extreme cases through incarceration and/ or hospitalization for a prolonged period) the lesson regarding the ultimate impotence of the human will. Often this is a signal to past actions set forth by the individual which are now portrayed through a lens of isolated surrender.  The twelfth house, being a cadent house, focuses on mental states, and it is here that Saturn tends to precipitate a vague sense of fear regarding self dissolution, disempowerment, or both.

The native’s sacrifice of material aspirations is often convergent with a twelfth house Saturn, visibly prominent even in youth. This may signal a child who serves as the caregiver of a parental figure at the expense of personal advancement. As opposed to a logical necessity, often there exists an instinctual sense of debt, accompanying guilt, fear, and overall ascetic and moral obligation. In other words, the native carries an innate sense of dutiful service, one that is channeled through generalized, instinctual guilt. As a result, guilt is the very catalyst that seeks penance through solitude. This may be displayed quite literally, as with a monk or nun, or may appear to be a form of involuntary penance, as with imprisonment. Other manifestations may include illness or retreat from conscious awareness via addictions or insanity. On a more subtle plane, it may delineate the recluse who feels division from society, despite the amount of company one is immersed in.

Saturnian natives are often cloaked with a vague sense of self and/ or identity. There is even a seemingly ambivalent aspect to this: the native’s fascination with and underlying fear of identity dissolution and loss of individuality. The physical form and co-existing material plane already feels foreign with this placement, as is the sense of being enveloped in a thin veneer which could be effortlessly diluted to nothingness. Despite the reflected mundane experience, there is ultimately, a call for the native to endure helplessness, isolation, and the sacrifice of his control.

A chart’s houses may be regarded as levels of advancement or maturity in the esoteric ‘school’ of wisdom. Therefore, this is indeed the most difficult ‘subject’ to master and endure, simultaneously. Additionally, the burden is exemplified with twice as much severity, being that not only is there emphasis on the house itself, but Saturn becomes its focal point. This can be further aggravated by aspects and additional planets, including the case of Saturn in the twelfth conjunct the ASC.

The potential of the Saturn twelfth house placement is funneled by those with an acute proclivity to inner contemplation. This becomes the final sacrifice of the illusion of separateness, which is willingly undergone because it is indeed the final barrier between the self and its freedom. Instead of altruism, the gratuity available from a twelfth house Saturn is the power to serve, to experience the sense of unity which is forever sought by the mystic, alongside the responsibility and detached love that harmonizes this unification.

Saturn: Ascetic Impetus of Psychic Consciousness

Modern Western astrology retains a generalized, two-dimensional, shallow interpretation of the natal chart. There is often an unspoken consensus that a chart should be construed on the basis of society’s moral axioms, a standardized method that fabricates dogmatic categories between the ‘positive’ and ‘negative’, moral and immoral, all at the detriment of the potentially rich symbolism and subtle paradoxes at its disposal. Ultimately, most inimical of all astrological symbols is Saturn, being renowned as the paramount single-sided Beast, without communicating its alternate facet, and therefore, retaining a flat, two-dimensional value for both interpreter and client alike.

At the root of Saturn’s symbolism is a psychic odyssey alongside a quality of experience. The planet’s known delineation of asceticism, suffering, restriction, and primal pain is far from the broader picture. Likewise, Saturn embodies the psychic process, a naturally human course, whereby  one uses said experiences of pain, restriction, and discipline for expanded consciousness and truthful fulfillment. Additionally, Saturn links with the educational value of pain and distinguishes between external and internal merits.

Independent of psychological or esoteric terminology, there exists a basic fact: self-discovery is the conduit of free will, and self-discovery is not usually attempted unless circumstances become too painful to neglect. Therefore, it should be noted that it is not enjoyment of pain which is promoted by Saturn but instead, the exaltation of psychosomatic release. It is possible to use each restriction, delay, disappointment and sacrifice as a catalyst for understanding the human psyche, with all its mechanisms, and ultimately learn to perceive the truthful purpose and meaning of our lives.

In order to synthesize and align the proper elements in a chart interpretation, isolated studies of Saturn should be avoided. In other words, Saturn must be correlated with the combination of Sun, Moon, and Ascendant, firstly, including respective signs, houses, and aspects. These specific factors combined with Saturn become the foundation of a natal chart from a perspective of character. This will facilitate awareness as to what the individual’s desire(s) (Sun), needs (Moon), the manner or ‘flavor’ in which one attains goals (Ascendant), and the root of failure and dissatisfaction once one has achieved said desires (Saturn). Although severely simplified (it would take volumes of text to produce an accurate depiction), the consideration of these four key factors brings insight and understanding to the core of an individual’s struggles towards transcendental consciousness. No chart is void of Saturn, regardless of dignified planets and exemplary aspects, as there can be no life without struggle.

Behavioral Shifts from the Sun to Ascendant Signs

A myriad of subtle (yet potent) nuances delineating a natal chart interpretation can often go unnoticed. Among these understated gradations is the difference in behavior that occurs between a zodiac sign unveiled in its solar placement and its appearance as an ascendant. In other words, a Sun sign may, varying in degree of severity, conduct itself quite differently when it’s portrayed as an ascendant (ASC). While this may be of particular interest to ‘doubles’ (i.e. a Piscean Sun with a Piscean ASC), and while close aspects will significantly modify the ASC, behavioral shifts from solar to ascendant signs are applicable to the entire zodiac and should therefore, be taken to account when interpreting a comprehensive chart.

If one regards the ascendant as a modifier for the manner in which a solar sign is expressed, one may easily notice the behavioral shifts from Sun to ascendant signs. Below is a glance at the manner in which these changes may manifest throughout the Western zodiac.

♈ Aries
The resourceful momentum of Aries is still displayed as an ASC, often with more vigor, while the innate brusqueness of a solar Aries is often funneled. This is further accentuated if Mars is placed in the water (except Scorpio, co-ruled by Mars) and Earth signs. I am of the opinion that this is one of the best ASC placements, as here, the 12 houses correlate with their ‘natural’ signs (i.e., Taurus is in the 2nd house, Gemini in the 3rd, etc.) While planetary placements and aspects are primordial influences, an Aries ASC tends to provide a solid, harmonious foundation for the remaining chart.

♉ Taurus
Since vitality is represented by the Sun, a Taurus ASC is usually less prone to lethargy, depending, of course, on the position and aspect(s) of Venus. The placement of Venus will also dictate levels of dynamism and ambition. The degree of possessiveness usually attributed to a Taurean Sun is less predominant as an ASC. However, Taurus ASC, on its own, is extremely cautious when approaching relationships. Like its solar counterpart, Taurus ASC retains its Venusian propensities to indulge the senses in a physical and sensual approach to the quotidian.

♊ Gemini
While the polarizing aspect of this solar sign is elevated as an ASC, its tendency towards superficiality is somewhat diminished. A Gemini ASC is an effective communicator, retaining a necessity for awareness on all levels. A pronounced conversationalist, this ASC is definitely one of the friendliest. While not necessarily one of the most reliable ASCs, if the Sun is positioned in an Earth sign, this proclivity can be slightly ameliorated. Fast, mobile, volatile, depending, of course, on Mercury’s aspects and placement.

♋ Cancer
Comparatively, the Cancerian ASC exhibits a more ostensible level of empathy in comparison to its solar counterpart. The solar Cancerian’s depth of emotion is felt on more of a personal level. The Cancer ASC is usually a strong introvert, unless it is stabilized by, for example, a lunar position in a fire sign. This ASC also appears more reserved and private than a Cancer Sun. A clearer perspective is generated, along with its aspects, by examining the placement of the Moon.

♌ Leo
Whatever the Sun placement may be, the Leo ASC will bring an element of authentic expression to that particular Sun. As an ASC, Leo can become a beneficial motivator. Although still present, the degree of pride/ arrogance is lessened while this ASC’s generosity is heightened. There seems to be less over-dramatization of the person’s feelings, comparatively, although the ASC can demonstrate an aloof persona. The spontaneity and playfulness of the Leo Sun is lessened as an ASC. Both placements (ASC and Sun) retain the need for respect and dignity.

♍ Virgo
Virgo ASC conceal a much wilder side compared to their solar counterparts. Notice how a Virgo’s ASC has its eighth house in Aries. I will leave it at that. The ASC possesses a seemingly higher level of self confidence and authentic humility, the latter being since they’re able to acknowledge how much further their path is in seeking self improvement. While the solar Virgo displays a more pronounced level of analysis, both Sun and ASC placements retain excellent craftsmanship skills.

♎ Libra
While the solar Libra behaves more detached than the ASC, the ascendant often appears more distinctive and kind, creating a more intimate hue to the expressive vigor of the person’s chart. While both solar and ASC placements have a need for interpersonal relationships, the desire is further amplified in the Libra ASC. The placement of Venus in the Libra ASC is crucial in determining the needs of the person’s relationships. Along with Gemini ASC, the Libra ASC has a great concern and focus on the physical self, which is of less predominance in the Libra Sun.

♏ Scorpio
The Scorpio ASC is often interested in the investigation of other people and may be associated with the healing arts, psychotherapy, and the esoteric, among other endeavors. A Scorpio ASC’s sense of fun equates to dissecting the motives of the human species. They care next to nil about the manner in which others perceive them and, unlike their fellow water signs, are ruthlessly blunt in self-expression. The degree of vengeance and obsessive self-preservation is heightened in the Scorpio ASC, while these ‘negative’ traits are mitigated in the solar Scorpio. Scorpio is the sign of emotional extremism, and this trait is heightened to its peak in the ASC.

♐ Sagittarius
The broad-mindedness and optimism expressed in the solar Sagittarius is seamlessly expressed in that of the ASC, even at the face of perpetual misfortune. Additionally, self-righteousness is more apparent in Sagittarius Sun as opposed to the ASC. While Sagittarius Sun is more directed towards theoretical/ mental activity, often singularly, the Sagittarius ASC is inclined to implementing action in support of a given ideal. There is usually, an intoxicating dose of enthusiasm derived from both counterparts, although it appears more pronounced in the ASC.

♑ Capricorn
Comparatively to the solar Capricorn, the Capricorn ASC holds a greater degree of skeptic self expression. It’s important to realize that the seemingly negative expression, apparent cynicism, and disdain for the unorthodox is primarily a defense mechanism for a more vulnerable, often spiritually-inclined nature. Both counterparts dislike to waste time on frivolous ideas. Both the solar and ASC Capricorn is concerned with outer appearance, reputation, and form, but the Capricorn ASC derives more fear of public opinion.

♒ Aquarius
The impact of Uranus is personified more heavily in the Aquarius Sun, versus the ASC. Aquarius ASC has a weightier acclimation to convention as opposed to Aquarius Sun. Both counterparts make exceptionally quick learners with a high degree of immediacy. Both the ASC and sun retain a detached demeanor, although the Aquarius Sun is more nonchalant and impersonal than the ASC. Saturn placement (along with house position and sign), instead of Uranus, is primordial in understanding the nature of the Aquarius ASC.

♓ Pisces
Strength of character and buoyancy in Pisces ASC is stronger than its solar counterpart, perhaps attributed to its ancient ruler, Jupiter. Because the Sun is considered debilitated in Pisces, these solar natives are more influenced by all of the other factors in their natal charts. Pisces ASC can remain relatively unperturbed when experiencing misfortune, again, partly attributed to the strong influence of Jupiter (as opposed to Neptune). Like Virgo ASC, Pisces ASC requests little credit or need for public acknowledgment regarding their contribution to society.

As repeatedly mentioned throughout this post, it is crucial to examine the condition and placement of the ascendant’s ruling planet when deciphering the behavior of a sign as a particular ASC. A proper chart interpretation accounts for all variables and intricacies, which are never limited to ASC positions, much less Sun placements. The objective of this post is only, in isolation, to differentiate between the behavior of a Sun placement and that of an ascendant.
