We all know the meaning of the 6th house in astrology and it’s importance for health/disease and work/labor. I don’t want to rewrite this things but to add a new perspective on the 6th house influence.
First we should analyze this house from the house cycle point of view. We are starting with the 1st house which is a representation of ‘me’ followed by 2nd house – ‘my resources’ , 3rd house – -‘my enviroment’ , 4th house – ‘my emotions’ etc.Â We all know that houses from 1 to 6 are reffering to personal issues of the individiual while the houses from 7 to 12 is about how the individual is using his resources in relationship with others and with the society.
The 6th house is all about ‘crisis’. It is a transitory house and it’s putting the individual in front of a dilemma…what should I do with my resources ( houses 1-5) and how should I relate with the world (7 to 12)? Therefore the individual is facing a real problem in adapting his needs to those of the society or his partners. Also he is questioning how much of his resources should be involved in outside projects?
So…you are in a critical point on the 6th house. What shall you do next? This is the reason why persons with individual planets in 6th house ( Sun,Moon,Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn) are tending to be more agitated and nervous. They are in a permanent crisis …all outside influences hard to assimilate and accepted. The most obvious case is the moment when we have to do something that is required by somebody else ( at your work or at your home)Â and we prefer to spend more time on complaining and making a crisis from this instead of doing that thing and just move on. For example: if you have to do a report that normally it will take 20 minutes you will spend another 30 minutes ‘preparing’ for this job…Why should I do? Ohh…it’s so annoying…What does he want for me? Why now?
The danger of this 6th house is that the individual is making from the ‘crisis’ a way of life. He/she thinks that problems are solving only by becaming more agitated and adding more presure. They have problems in relaxing and calming. And of course this attitude it will generate problems esp. at work. And all this problems are manifesting directly on our health status…this why 6th house is an indication of the diseases we might suffer from.
It is important to observe 6th house also in solar returns and lunar returns charts. A Sun or Moon there is always indication a hard time period with a lot of stress and agitations.
For people with planets in 6th house…try to relax! Mediation might help you calm down your mind.
