9thvirgo:

unaspected planets

After a lot of searching, I finally found a book that helped me understand my yods and my unaspected Venus. I thought it would be great to share a passage from the book where the author explains the unaspected planets. I hope this can help someone out there!

from the book: The Yod Book: Including a Complete Discussion of Unaspected Planets wroted by Karen Hamaker

If we have an unaspected planet in the horoscope, it is very likely that we aren’t really very aware of all the things we do with it and how strongly we bring this planet  to expression in daily life. An unaspected planet manifests itself unmistakably though! However, just to clear up a couple of misconceptions right off the bat: an unaspected planet is not weak, not insignificant, and not bad. On the contrary, many people who have achieved extraordinary things turn out to have had help in doing so from an unaspected planet in the horoscope. With unaspected planets, the question is not, therefore, whether we can achieve anything with them, because we definitely can. Instead, the question is how we go about it and how that feels inside.  

An isolated planet has to do everything by itself. At first it even seems like the other subject matter inside us doesn’t see this piece of us. That’s why we don’t get to know it very quickly. Somewhere, though, deep inside, we do know it’s there. This isn’t so much a conscious knowing, but more an implicit knowing. It makes us tend to keep searching for that piece of ourselves, that planet. To our feeling, it is a “faraway” given, and if this concerns a skill or activity, we’ll have the idea that we aren’t ready to do it by a long shot and “maybe never will learn,” without there being any demonstrable proof of this. That inner feeling is usually pretty strong, and if one little thing goes wrong, we tend to lend it a lot more weight than necessary.  So, we go off in search of the subject matter of that planet. Some domains that are appropriate to that planet even hold a sort of magical or mysterious kind of attraction. Once I met a boy with an unaspected Mercury who, at a very early age, was fascinated by pencils and pens (objects appropriate to Mercury). Whenever his parents couldn’t find any, all they had to do was go to his room and that’s where they would find just about all the writing utensils they had in the house! He simply couldn’t keep his hands off them. No matter what his parents did from asking in a friendly way to leave the pens where they belonged, to giving him a big set of his own pens, to punishing him—nothing worked. Each pen had its own fascination. Mercury can, of course, also entail lots of other things, so a fascination can also lie in other Mercury domains. For this boy, it was pens. Precisely because of this fascination and our “being in search of,” we will be preoccupied with an unaspected planet, but won’t ourselves be aware of it at all. The problem is, namely, that there are no other planets that provide any contact with this isolated planet, so that at first we don’t see all the things we do with it. We simply don’t recognize it, and aren’t able to place it, like the boy with his pens. He simply didn’t understand that he had a few too many of them in his room. It’s as if everything we do with that planet somehow or other isn’t to be fathomed, knows no moderation, or isn’t to be controlled. This, by the way, doesn’t have to be the case forever. Over the course of life we will have several chances to gain insight into this: other planets will naturally start creating aspects with it in transit and progression, and in those periods will make contact with that subject matter. Then we suddenly take a big step forward and see what we’re doing, or come closer to deeper longings and character traits. And the unaspected planet itself will start creating aspects in progression and transit as well. So there will be plenty of chances to learn moderation and to figure ourselves out. Initially, though, things will be tough.

The fascination that an unaspected planet exerts on its “owner,” coupled with an orientation toward the domain of that planet, largely contribute to the development of the talent that particular planet promises. Unnoticed, we develop many facets of this energy by continually being preoccupied with it, but as soon as we start understanding and recognizing this energy a little more, it holds even more  potential. The fascination and the quest give us focus on—and at the same time an orientation toward—a particular domain. Frequently, people choose the domain of  the unaspected planet as their profession, or otherwise use the energy of this planet in their daily lives. This is certainly possible, and can be done with great joy and very consciously. I once saw a sports teacher (she has an emphasized 5th house) with an unaspected Venus finally change profession: she became a cosmetologist.    

Another hallmark of unaspected planets is that they are often accompanied by feelings of insecurity. This insecurity is connected to a number of things. In the first place, the idea of “being in search of,” that often expresses itself in a kind of restless feeling, I sometimes try to describe as a feeling of “hunger,” or “yearning,” or  “being unfulfilled” in the area of that planet. A longing, too, but for what we don’t know. It can’t be described; it is diffuse and vague, and we can’t really make anybody see what it’s all about. Even if we have everything our hearts desire, this feeling can still be there. So it has absolutely nothing to do with external circumstances  or with whatever we’ve achieved in life.  An unaspected Moon, for instance, can have a deep longing for security and a profound need for warmth, and even run the risk of not seeing the warmth that is there (but this is not on purpose!) because of a gnawing feeling that overrides it.  Or, to give an example of Venus: A couple of years ago a couple consulted me and asked for an astrological analysis of their relationship. They had been married almost thirty years, but the woman was in a kind of crisis. She didn’t know if she loved her husband, or if she had ever loved him, and claimed she didn’t really know what love actually was. Her husband didn’t take this personally. His commentary was simple and honest, “We’ve gotten along very well together all these years, and I just know she loves me, and I love her. So something else must be going on, and that’s why we’re here.” His wife, however, had gotten hold of the nagging thought that she didn’t know what love was, and therefore also didn’t know if she loved her husband.  Her Venus created no aspects whatsoever! After I had explained what an unaspected planet meant in general, and how an unaspected Venus works in particular, something finally clicked in her. She understood that the unfulfilled and searching feeling was inside herself and had nothing to do with her marriage. “If I look back at it that way,” she said, “then we have in fact gotten along very well together all these years, and I wouldn’t want to be without my husband.” There was a moment of silence, and then she said, “Maybe that’s what love is. Maybe I  shouldn’t be getting myself so worked up about it anymore, and accept that I can’t catch or grasp it all.” This is a nice example of how, with an unaspected planet, we can run the risk of misjudging a situation because with all that “searching” we begin to mull and fret. Just as often, though, all that searching has yet another result, namely the idea that we “aren’t there yet,” or can’t do certain things. In the case of the unaspected Venus, this can express itself in a feeling that others don’t  think we’re nice, or that we weren’t cut out for love, or that we feel inferior because of our looks and/ or emotions. In every instance this feeling does not corroborate the real situation or talents and capabilities. Once again though, the fact is that we don’t see it at first. And even with an unaspected Venus, we can be very sweet, mediate very well, and have a finely tuned sense of harmony! Hidden in an unaspected planet like this is a great talent waiting to be discovered.
