Find yourself; Find your tribe
The doorways to the First and Seventh houses are created by the line of the Avatar Axis. The First House represents the identity we need to craft as an individual. It is our autonomy. Here we are free and independent to make up our own minds about who we want to be.
We need a physical tangible body, and we need a persona that radiates the one unique aspect of the Force we came to express. If we hide our authentic nature, we become invisible to the “others” that we need to accomplish self-actualization.
It requires courage to be 100% totally unique. As a totally unique expression of the Force, you are the first you that there has ever been. Therefore, the natural sign at the doorway to the First house is the initiating Fire sign of Aries, the Trailblazer. The natural ruler of Aries is the Guardian of Courage, Mars.
Whereas the First house represents autonomy, the Seventh house represents communion. The material realm is not an easy realm to manage on one’s own. It requires the amassing of resources. Material resources require a certain amount of care and maintenance. There are many mundane labor tasks that must be conducted daily, in order to survive in this realm. Therefore, we must identify our tribe. In developing our autonomy in the First House our tribe is able to recognize us as a part of “them”. In this manner, the tribe that will serve us best in this world will naturally be attracted to us.
The tribe is necessary for the managing of resources and distribution of the mundane labor tasks required for life on this planet. Without a tribe, we become involved in a never-ending cycle of keeping up with mundane tasks, and the creation axis becomes crippled.
Contractual agreements serve the Seventh House by ensuring the fair and equal delegation of resources and labor. Legal binding agreements, in their original design, ensure balance, to ensure fairness; equality, fraternity, and liberty. Therefore, the natural sign at the doorway to the Seventh House is the initiating Air Sign of Libra, the Equalizer. Libra’s natural ruler is Venus. Venus is entrusted with the responsibility of ensuring beauty on the planet. Beauty is created by balance. Balance is rooted in equality. Beauty can be cultivated in the material and beauty can be cultivated in relationships. The current concept of beauty in this world, is greatly distorted. The current system of law in this world is likewise corrupted. The current beauty constructs do more to destroy balance than to create it. Look to Venus to rectify, correct, and restore the natural balance.
Venus is a magnetic force. Mars is an active electrical force. By actively crafting our own autonomy with courage, we create a visible persona, that will naturally attract the “others” we need to survive and thrive. This is the balance between the poles of the Avatar Axis.
Your desire to be, born of the emptiness of the Goddess has propelled you onto the path of a great mission. There are six distinct objectives that must be met. Each objective contains an aspect of “self” and an aspect of “other”. To meet these objectives, you must be aware of them. The six axes create 12 points and result in a perfect 360-degree circle. However, based on the time of birth, the 12 points are not always equally spaced. These spaces are the “houses” of the astrological wheel.
This circle represents your unique resonance–a very specific, unique, aspect of the Force. The objective required for each house must be met for the effective operation of all of the other houses. They are dependent on one another. Each axis consists of a starting point and an ending point. The starting point represents what is needed by you as an individual; the ending point represents what is needed by you as part of the collective. There is “you” that exists as an individual. There is “you” that exists as the Force. Both are you at every moment of every day. You can express a unique aspect of the force but you cannot separate from it. The Force is you, always. The six axes provide you with everything that both aspects of yourself need. Your individual needs are not in opposition nor contradictory to your needs as part of the Force. They are simply connected. The Way of the Goddess is to keep the balance between the two.
The line of the axis is the doorway to the house it creates. This doorway is often referred to as a cusp. Some houses may have two cusps and therefore two doorways. The sign on the cusp of an astrological house shows us where to look for its Key. The Key opens the door allowing us access to what we need. To be able to find the Keys, we must first know the natural rulerships. The natural rulerships are the code that shows us where the keys to your houses have been hidden.
