When I do charts, I get sad, sometimes. I am going to write about placements that either I, someone close to me or some of my clients have experienced. These are not the only “sad” placements, but they are ones that I have, personally, found sad. As always, I hope that this can help you learn in a way that is interesting.
1. Kaali Conjunct the Ascendant
Someone close to me has this placement. He is an extroverted person but gets very drained by people. Hence, he tends to eschew social interactions. This loss of energy is not his fault. Kaali is the energy body. It is not a good placement to have one’s energy body close to the Ascendant. It is better to have Kaali in a more internal spot.
2 Aphophis Conjunct Mercury
I found the practical meaning of Aphophis from doing charts. I am not an egghead astrologer. I have to understand the placements from my heart before I can use them. That is why I do charts as I do. I want to understand from the owner of the chart how HE perceives his placements. In this case, Aphophis produces chaos in the mind.The person I know has a very hard time learning and concentrating on subjects, even though he is very intelligent. Once again, it is not his fault. It is the hand of cards he was dealt, so to speak.
3. Aphophis Conjunct Venus
This is in the chart of one of my beloved clients. All of my clients are beloved. If I do not resonate with you, I won’t do your chart. Hence, I love all my clients and, usually, have long term relationships with them. In this case, love seems to be something that turns chaotic, through no fault of his own. It is the nature of the chart energies.
4. Nemesis Conjunct the Moon
I have this and it is sad. My mother was my secret enemy. In the case of this aspect, it is very hard to trust women, in general. One’s relationships with women seem to turn sour. How this happens, I am not sure. It is, probably, simply the chart energies and not something of which one has conscious control.
5. Chiron Conjunct the North Node
Chiron causes so much darn pain. God knows what He is doing in making the charts, but with my small, human, peanut brain, I would like to obliterate Chiron. I would like to make every planet Jupiter, the fairy godmother. In the case of Chiron conjunct the North Node, the person seems to have a theme of pain in his life, through no fault of his own.
Hard Moon placements make me very sad. I am a Cancer Moon and am very emotional. If you tell me a sad story, you will see tears in my eyes. The Moon is one’s deepest heart. In the case of the Unaspected Moon, the native was not mothered. She was not nurtured.
7. Saturn in the 12th House
This placement seems to be a person who feels left out of life. This native may sit on the sidelines of life while watching others interact,but be afraid to join.
8. Pluto Conjunct the IC
This is, likely, violence in the childhood home. The native may never really get over this trauma.
9. Sado Conjunct the IC
I just realized I had this last week. I, rarely, do my own chart. I have it exact and I was kind of shocked. However, my mother was sadistic, so, once again, the chart never lies.
10. Dejanira Conjunct the Moon at a Close Orb(1-4)
If I had to say the top saddest placement, it would be this. I have never seen a case in which the child did not have serious childhood abuse, usually sexual. My heart breaks when I see this placement.
