This is used to calculate the ascendant (AC), the degree of the zodiac sign that rises above the horizon in Figure 1 (from Astrodienst Z & uuml; rich) East (in the figure on the left) at the time of birth. In astrology, the ascendant stands for one's own personality. On the opposite side of the I-You axis is the Descendant, whose zodiac sign describes the type of encounter with you. In the middle of the circle you should think of the earth or your own self. The AC-DC axis corresponds to the horizon line. At this point, planets above are in the sky above the place of birth, planets below are on the other side. Outside, the twelve signs of the zodiac are shown in the sense of twelve original principles (see Figure 2). Hermann Hesse's horoscope shows the AC sign of Sagittarius (V) on the left and Gemini (v) as the DC sign on the right. The planet Jupiter (j) is close to the ascendant and Mercury (f) is on the descendant. (See horoscope drawing by Hermann Hesse) Houses If the exact time and place of birth are known, the individual horoscope users can also be calculated. House 1 corresponds to the counterclockwise section from the ascendant onwards. The house numbers are in the inner circle (see horoscope drawing by Hesse). Male pole: activity is directed outwards, creative power, warmth, giving oneself with energy, acting, his female pole extroverts: activity is directed inward, looking at, receiving, taking, experiencing and Let yourself be touched, cold The feminine signs include the elements water and earth. Water signs are Pisces (M), Scorpio (C) and Cancer (b). Water is highly receptive and tangible, it is about dealing with our intuition and our feelings. Earth signs are Capricorn (Z), Virgo (m) and Taurus (c). An emphasis on earth in the horoscope speaks for realism and closeness to nature. The water needs the earth to give itself shape. The male characters include the elements air and fire. Fire signs are Sagittarius (V), Leo (n) and Aries (x). Fire means life energy, spontaneity in action, impulsiveness, enthusiasm. Air signs are Aquarius (N), Libra (X) and Gemini (V). Fire needs air to burn, i.e. & copy; 2003 Christina Dolland Page such ideas that fuel enthusiasm. Air stands for exchange and communication, for intellectual and spiritual agility. Figure 2 (from the magazine "Venus") Correspondences Zodiac signs, planets and houses have correspondences to one another, that is, it is about the same basic principle or archetype. Nevertheless, there are differences in the effect: The zodiac sign is about the what, a topic or an ability that wants to be realized. The house means the where, the area of ​​life, the place in which this should take place and the planet is the actor who should implement it (who?). For the astrological method of the ruling system and the aspect constellations, it is a prerequisite to know or look up these correspondences.

Taurus-Venus stands for love directed inward towards oneself, Libra-Venus for love for you. According to Gemini-Mercury for communication and information gathering outside, the Virgo-Mercury for inward analytical thinking. System of rulers The ascendant (left in the middle) is the top of house 1, the next line starting from the center counterclockwise is the top of house 2, etc. To find the "ruler" of a house, I look into which one Zodiac signs the top of the house falls. In the case of Hesse, for example, the tip of the 4th house points into the Aries. Then the planet that corresponds to Aries (see above) - that is Mars (h) - is the ruler of house 4. This planetary energy is in charge in this house, comparable to a landlord. The planets that are in this house then correspond to the tenants, who can, however, definitely influence the atmosphere in the house. At Hesse's house 4 there are Neptun (G) and Chiron (D). The ruler of the house, here Mars, symbolizes the system (own assertiveness) that is to be developed in this area (house 4, own identity). The next question is then, where did the ruler emigrate to, where is he himself in the horoscope. This is where his energy flows, that is where his effect comes into its own. Mars is in Hesse's house 3. Since there are also Neptune and Chiron in house 4, Mars also takes these energies with him to house 3 like "in a backpack" are the fish. The planet that corresponds to Pisces is Neptune, so Neptune is ruler of house 3. If a zodiac sign is enclosed in a house - that is, there is no point pointing into it - one speaks of a co-ruler. With Hesse, for example, Aquarius is included in house 2, so Uranus (A) is co-ruler of house 2. Sometimes rulers are in the house that they also rule, then they have a particularly strong position, as Hesse says Jupiter (j) as ruler of 1 also in house 1 and Mercury (f) as ruler of house 7 in 7. My overview panel "Ruler connection" shows the interconnectedness of the rulers as a whole. Aspects Planets can be related to each other over certain angular distances, support each other with their energies (harmonic aspects) or come into tension (challenging aspects). Overview conjunction • - Angular distance approx. 0 degrees & copy; 2003 Christina Dolland Page The planets are very close together and form a unit. Can be a harmonious or tense aspect, depending on how the planetary energies get along and which zodiac sign is the background. (With Hesse moon-Saturn conjunction) Opposition & Otilde; - Angular distance approx. 180 degrees Here the planets are exactly opposite each other. Topic of polarity in relationships above all, mutual challenge and complementarity. (With Hesse Merkur opposition Jupiter) Square t - angular distance of approx. 90 degrees tension aspect, which contributes to awareness through resistance and difficulties. (With Hesse Saturn square ascendant) Trine u - angular distance of approx. 120 degrees Harmonic aspect, the planetary energies enrich each other, but this is not perceived as self-evident, but not consciously. (With Hesse for example Merkur Trigon MC) Sextile r - angular distance of approx. 60 degrees a harmonious aspect that shows creative possibilities that, in contrast to the Trigon, want to be used consciously. Quintile (72 degrees) and biquintile (144 degrees) special talents due to efforts in earlier life. At Hesse there is a quintile-biquintile triangle, see aspect figures in the appendix. Constellations Due to the correspondence between signs of the zodiac, planets and houses (see above), aspects and other relationships between planets, signs and houses can be combined into a constellation, on a common theme. Example with Hesse: Sun - Pluto constellation: Sun / Pluto: Sun corresponds to Leo and house 5 Pluto corresponds to house 8 and Scorpio This results in the individual possibilities for Sun / Pluto rulers from 8 to 5 rulers from 8 in L & ouml; we rulers of 5 in 8 rulers of 5 in Scorpio point house 5 points in Scorpio point house 8 points in the lion Pluto in house 5 & copy; 2003 Christina Dolland page Sun in house 8 or in Scorpio Sun / Pluto aspects (conjunction, opposition, etc.) Pluto in L & ouml; wen In Hesse you can find: Sun in half-square to Pluto, Pluto in house 5, ruler of 5 in 8 , The sun is co-ruler of house 8 (= L & ouml; we is included in the 8th house). Lunar node axis The lunar nodes (? K) are astronomically seen intersections of the earth's orbit around the sun with the lunar orbit around the earth. If one thinks of the sun and the revolving earth in one plane, then the plane of the lunar orbit is inclined to the earth-sun plane. This creates the two points of intersection, which are always 180 degrees opposite each other and form an axis. In astrology, the lunar knots have to do with one's own past on the one hand and with the inner goal of life on the other. The southern lunar node (?) Shows where I come from, which experiences and behaviors I am very familiar with. One can interpret this as an inheritance that one has received through the one-sidedness of one's family and ancestors and / or as an inheritance from past lives, if one proceeds from the reincarnation. The northern lunar knot (k) shows what I especially want to develop in life (this time) in the new, where I should get involved in unknown territory, which requires a lot of energy and effort. Ultimately, it is a matter of finding a new balance, a synthesis, again between the two poles - represented by the signs and houses in which the lunar nodes are located. Book recommendations Sch & uuml; tz, Wilfried. The human game. Astrology as the key to religion and spirituality. A textbook of spiritual astrology. Distributed by Chiron Verlag (2003). ISBN 3-925100-94-6 Anyone who likes Hesse's thoughts about the connectedness of all religions in the world, about polarity and unity, who can be enthusiastic about Siddhartha's loving devotion to the river, will also find this book in its philosophical foundations are particularly enjoyable. And so it can also be the ideal start to get more familiar with astrology. The astrological symbolic language is connected in a clear way with mythologies, alchemical ideas and religious symbolism, so that an abundance of images stimulates one's own imagination. The author is interested in access to the spiritual dimension of astrology. Trust in the flow of life and agreement with everything that comes across is contrasted with the dichotomy between good and evil. Since we humans are bound to judgment in our consciousness, a rift is going through creation that shows us the beauty of the original & copy; 2003 Christina Dolland robs page of wholeness. It is important to overcome the acquired norms and to open up again for your own intuition (Pisces) and inspiration (Aquarius). The author sees this as the spiritual starting point for human activity. That is why he looks at the zodiac backwards from Pisces and ends with Aries, the deed in the body. On this basis, signs of the zodiac, houses, aspects and other basic elements of astrology are explained.
