Diving into the Darkness: The 8th and 12th Houses

The topics of the 8th and 12th houses are some of the most abstract in your birth chart and can be tricky to understand. We’ll explore why these ‘dark’ houses have such a terrible (and undeserved!) reputation, and how planets in the 8th and 12th houses will really influence your life.

You’ll learn the origins of the topics of the 8th and 12th houses, which were originally known as the house of death and the house of Mala Daemon (bad spirit) respectively. You’ll discover why they are associated with the topics and concepts that they are and learn the true meaning of these often misunderstood places.

The Alchemy of Relationships Part 2: When Things get Stuck

Sometimes, even when there is love, things get stuck. The spark seems to fade, conversation goes flat, and comfort dulls the senses. This corresponds to a state of Separatio, after the merging there is the shaking out of what truly belongs to us.  These times are often described by Pluto or Saturn, or periods of transit by quincunx. As astrologers we can understand the withdrawal of energy from certain parts of a chart, the lighting up of others, this stuckness can correspond to the alchemical operation of Separatio.

Likewise, we can use astrology for insights into our relationships with others, whether those are romantic partners, family members, soul family, co-workers or friends. 

In this summit, 12 top astrologers explore relationships from many angles. We’ll look at mother-daughter relationships, romantic pairings, family dynamics and even the experience of “higher love”.
