The Truth, Love & Energy of Astrology.jpg



A Note from Maureen:

I am really excited to have gotten all this great new material on how the Michael Teachings can be applied to Astrology. One of the reasons is that it proves there is so much more to be learned from the Michael Teachings. The Michael Teachings are not an Active/Static Teaching – they are Alive!

As I was editing the material I did think of removing all my questions so that we could just hear Michael’s voice. Then I quickly realized that they needed to be left in as the questions were needed – questions are needed – not only for context but because they are the other half of a fully-formed answer. You can’t have an answer without a question – just like you can’t have a conversation without talking and listening! That’s what makes The Michael Teachings, through Troy, so fresh and “alive” – it’s the questions!

The Q&A process I went through – that we all go through with Michael – is a great example of The Michael Teachings being “Passive and Alive”. As Troy has said… "it is through our participation, our application, and our questions that the teaching stays alive and evolving."

Maureen’s Questions were on:

  • The Natal Houses and how they relate to the Michael Teachings,
  • some examples through personal questions,
  • and a little extra on Chiron, Uranus and North/South Nodes

The Truth, Love and Energy of Astrology shows how The Michael Teachings can be applied to the House System (1 to 12) in Astrology. The Q&As were channeled over a one year period. The finished material is so long I decided to break it down into parts.

Part One will focus on Houses 1 & 7, 2 & 8 and 3 & 9.

Part Two will focus on Houses 4 & 10, 5 & 11 and 6 & 12. 

Part Three will focus on Keywords for how Truth, Love and Energy is expressed through each House, Negative/Positive Poles as applied to House Pairings and North/South Nodes, Chiron and Uranus.

PART ONE ~ The Truth, Love and Energy of Astrology

1st and 7th Natal Houses 

  • 1st House could be called: The House of ~ EMERGENCE (or Emerging)
  • Astrological counterparts: Fire (Personal), Aries, Cardinal, Mars, # 1
  • Relationship to the Michael Teachings: The Emotional Center ‘Love’, –Mode (as it relates to the Emotional Center), Casting, Self-Karma, sheds light on one’s Life Task
  • 7th House could be called: The House of ~ REFLECTIONS (or Relating)
  • Astrological counterparts: Air (Social), Libra, Cardinal, Venus, #7
  • Relationship to the Michael Teachings: The Higher Emotional Center ‘Love’, +Mode (as it relates to the Higher Emotional Center), Karma with Others



Maureen:  Michael – Please give your perspective on the Astrological, Natal 1st House. The First House traditionally rules your overall vitality, your persona (how you look), how you interact with others, your overall approach to life. Some say it is the house most descriptive of your personality. The 1st House holds first Impressions – the ones you make on the world, and the ones the world makes on you.

Also – Please give your perspective on the Astrological, Natal 7th House. The 7th House traditionally rules partnerships of all kinds to include spouses, business partners, clients, and even open enemies. My take on the 7th House includes all the references to relationships but it also includes seeing this house as a place where we “willingly” give away traits, qualities, etc. to others – until we mature and are able to claim them for ourselves. Our external search for partnering mirrors our own true search for self.

Maureen:  Also, time permitting, any comment on the placement of Neptune (Ruler of my Pisces Ascendant) in Libra, intercepted in my 7th House, with Virgo on the Descendant, would be appreciated.

MEntity:  We will combine our responses to both questions as they are so relevant to each other: We would say that the First and Seventh Houses in Astrology could be understood as contexts that relate to SELF and OTHER.

Those terms listed respectively.

To elaborate upon the First House, this might be a story of one's INTENTIONS as Identity. In that story, there may be insights into Imprinting that was chosen by Essence, but there may also be insights into how the Self sees the Self, or experiences itself.

In terms relative to our teaching, it can also shed light on how one's Casting might show up.

This House can also shed light on one's Life Task, as any Natal Planet here can give an indication as to the general theme and its challenges or support, as described by angles, etc.

As for the Seventh House, this might be a story of one's REFLECTIONS as Identity, as how one interacts with, and relates to, others in terms self-awareness.

If the First House is seen as one's imprinting and intentions, then the 7th House might be seen as how that plays out in the world, and how it is amplified or transformed.

By "the world" here, we mean "relationships."

In terms relative to our teaching, this House can also shed light on one's Mode.

The First House can also be understood as lending insight into one's Self-Karma, while the 7th House might give some insight into Karma (with others).

MEntity:  In response to your question about the planets, if we understand your description and placements correctly, would tell the story of how you may have had to work through the fantastical ideals of perfection and beauty that you bring to the expectations of relationships, and your subsequent refinement of control issues regarding those expectations.

With Pisces as the Ascendant, it would indicate a profound sensitivity and self-consciousness within, which is then expected to be regarded and reflected in your relationships. This would have set up several relationships as doomed to failure or turbulence for not living up to those expectations of considerate sensitivities that you can so easily access within.

Over the years, this would have been part of the Self-Karmic processes of this life, and a balance between expectations and capabilities would eventually be gained, probably showing up as a clear awareness of boundaries, limits, and pointless efforts to control, giving you much more freedom because now you would have learned not to take others' choices too personally, while also not pushing your expectations when they cannot be met.

MEntity:  Of course, all of this is an abbreviation of the information and interpretation we may offer, but this is a start.

2nd and 8th Houses 

  • 2nd House could be called: The House of ~ PRESENCE (or Establishing)
  • Astrological counterparts: Earth (Personal), Taurus, Fixed, Taurus, # 2
  • Relationship to the Michael Teachings: The Moving Center ‘Energy’, –The Path, Ordinal/Action
  • 8th House could be called: The House of ~ EVOLUTION (or Sharing)
  • Astrological counterparts: Water (Social), Scorpio, Fixed, Pluto, #8
  • Relationship to the Michael Teachings: The Higher Moving Center ‘Energy’, +The Path, Cardinal (exalted)/Action

Maureen:  Michael – Please give your perspective on the Astrological, Natal 2nd House. The 2nd House traditionally rules your “personal” money, possessions and material resources and also rules the more intangible ownership of talents, self esteem and values.

Also – Please give your perspective on the Astrological, Natal 8th House. The 8th House traditionally rules “shared” money, possessions and material resources including any joint financial ventures. Specific areas of focus may be Taxes, Inheritances, Death and Sex. Also, any comments on the placement of Mars and Saturn in the Natal House 8th House would be appreciated.

MEntity:  We will respond to both questions simultaneously, as they are two sides of the same coin, so to speak.

Maureen:  lol (”two sides of the same coin” - Michael is so funny sometimes -- the 2nd & 8th Houses are about money!)

MEntity:  Using our terminology for helping to understand these Houses is more effective in our conveying an "interpretation" than if we were to use a different teaching to describe these, even terms of Astrology, as that is not our teaching.

With that in mind, we will say that these Houses might be the Moving and Higher Moving energies/Centers as they play out in terms of Natal insight and being activated in Transits.


In simplistic terms, it might be said that the 2nd House describes the context in which resources support and protect the body/Personality, whereas the 8th House describes the context in which resources support the soul/Essence.

Put another way, the 2nd House describes how the body/Personality secures its survival, and the 8th House describes how the soul/Essence secures its evolution.

All of Astrology is Personality-based, so it is important to understand that, even when the soul/Essence is referenced, it is in terms of how this serves the Personality, or how the Personality is serving the soul.

Some of the traditional terms for both Houses are interchangeable, but are in different contexts: for instance, Sex is involved in both Houses, but in the 2nd House it is in the context of procreation/survival/need, and in the 8th it is for union and pleasure, desire.

Death is a part of both Houses, but in the 2nd House this is in terms how the body/Personality deals with conditions that can lead to death, or threats to the body, and in the 8th House this can refer to how the death of others affects the life or soul.

The 2nd House is one of NEEDS, and the 8th is one of DESIRES.

In terms that may seem more intangible, such things as Self-esteem, Talent, Values, are actually quite tangible, and are extensions of that Personality's concepts of RESOURCE and sense of survival, or security of the self. Self-esteem, for instance, is directly linked to the immune system.

Going back to shared terms across the Houses: such things as Money are a part of both Houses, but the 2nd House is in terms of survival, or immediate need, while the other is in terms of transformation, or greater desires, which is why inheritances and taxes might be associated with that 8th House, as they reflect larger arcs.

These might be said to be the Action Axis of the Natal Wheel.

The 2nd House is Ordinal/Action, while the 8th is Cardinal (exalted)/Action.

More can be said in further exchanges with you.

3rd and 9th Natal Houses

  • 3rd House could be called: The House of ~ LESSONS (or Learning)
  • Astrological counterparts: Air (Personal), Gemini, Mutable/Cadent, Mercury, # 3
  • Relationship to the Michael Teachings: The Intellectual Center ‘Truth’, –The Attitude(Ordinal Expression), The 9 Pillars
  • 9th House could be called: The House of ~ CONTEXT (or Seeking)
  • Astrological counterparts: Fire (Universal), Sagittarius, Mutable/Cadent, Jupiter, #9
  • Relationship to the Michael Teachings: The Higher Intellectual Center ‘Truth’, +The Attitude (Exalted Expression)

Maureen:  Michael – Please give your perspective on the Astrological, Natal 3rd House. The 3rd House traditionally rules short trips, errands, your immediate neighbourhood, neighbours, siblings, grammar school, the acquisition and use of language. It seems to relate to how well we “adapt” to our immediate world. I associate the 3rd House with the lower mind, how we think, how we learn, etc. Symbolically I see the 3rd House as Magazines, articles or short stories.

 Also – Please give your perspective on the Astrological 9th House. The 9th House traditionally rules long journeys, world travel, adventure, the study of all religions, philosophies, mysticism, publishing, higher education/learning, mind/life expansion in general. It seems to relate to how well we adapt to the larger world, bigger ideas, all people, places or things that are “different” than we are. I associate the 9thHouse with our higher mind, complex ideas, how well we can extrapolate our ideas or expand ourselves. Symbolically I see the 9th House as lengthy stories, epics or sagas.

Maureen:  Also to elucidate the meaning of the 3rd House – any comments on the placement of Jupiter (in Gemini) in my 3rd House.

MEntity:  The 3rd House is another component of the Intellect and tends to govern how one develops the capacity to use immediate interaction, or feedback, as a means for navigating the life.
It is how the Attitude functions in the life in ordinal ways, or in immediate ways.

Looking at influences in this House can lend insight into how one interprets his or her day-to-day existence and world.

In terms of the 9th House , it could be said that this is a Higher Intellectual component, and tends to govern how one develops the capacity for use of long-term arcs of experiences, meaning, and value as a means for navigating the life.

It is how the Attitude functions in the life in cardinal ways, or in larger arcs to create personal philosophies.

Looking at influences in this House can lend insight into how one tends to interpret his entire existence in the universe.

Additional Material – Patterns within Patterns – given in this session:

To help in seeing the pattern of Houses, we will clarify here that those Houses below the horizon resonate to Ordinal Centers of Emotional, Moving, Intellectual, Intellectual, Moving, and Emotional, respectively.

In those Houses above the Horizon, continuing in order, the pattern is Higher Emotional, Higher Moving, Higher Intellectual, Higher Intellectual, Higher Moving, Higher Emotional.

Maureen:  patterns within patterns...

Houses 3, 4, 9, and 10 will explore all of the components of the Attitude and how this shapes ones sense of meaning and presence in the world, internally and externally. This is a crude simplification, but fair for now. They are the explorations of Truths.

We elaborate here for the point of sharing that those 4 components are Elemental, in terms of Astrology.

MEntity:  This may lend more insight in both directions of interpretation, as applying the corresponding Overleaf to those Houses can add dimension to your Astrological explorations, while applying the Elements to an Overleaf can also help to grasp dimensions of an Overleaf.

Maureen:  You said "those" 4 components -- what are those?

MEntity:  Fire, Air, Earth, and Water Elements.

Maureen:  Of course! So for instance -- the 4 houses mentioned are Air (3rd, Gemini), Water (4th, Cancer), Fire (9th Sagittarius), Earth (10th, Capricorn) -- and each of those respective houses relate to Attitude... I see

MEntity:  We will also clarify here, that while the 3rd and 9th explore the Attitude, it is the 9th House where the Attitude is more "technically" emphasized, while its counterpart, in Astrological terms, would be The 9 Pillars in the 3rd House.

We are revealing patterns here that will make complete sense upon our work around the wheel of Houses.

This is also new to Troy, so there may be some necessity for resolving discrepancies that may accumulate over our exchanges, if any.

MEntity:  As far as your Jupiter in your 9th House, this would indicate that your Philosophies, Truths, and Attitude are in a perpetual state of expansion and exploration in this lifetime, most of the time to your excitement, but sometimes to your detriment, in that it can be difficult to find footing, if you will.

Correction: As far as your Jupiter in your 3rd House, this would indicate what we described above, but in terms much "closer to home," in that you feed into your philosophies and truths through interactions, personal stories, with a tendency to depend upon feedback.

However, as Jupiter is in the 3rd House, then, it would mean that your circle of feedback continues to expand. Your resources for building your philosophies are constantly growing, or expected, or intending to grow.

This would still affect the 9th House, as we described above, but more accumulatively, rather than so directly, if Jupiter were in the 9th.

We are not Astrologers, but we have Astrologers in our archive of Personalities, of course. We are not generating a personal report here, as much as we are simply "plugging in" the parts of the equations to generate an example interpretation.

In general, a person with Jupiter in the 3rd House, might grow quite restless if his or her input and resources for expanding truths and philosophy grow stagnant or restricted.

MEntity:  These are loose correspondences for the sake of creating bridges of understanding between systems, and should not be thought of as static, but they are fair correspondences.

So exciting! I have a question after having read everything.

What interests me most in my own chart is my own 5th House - CREATION, which is related to the Goal.

I have my Natal Chart and Michael's information on the house and I see that I have Venus in my fifth house. I also, of course, have planets in other houses, but for this question, I want to focus on just one house for clarity (this is a very difficult subject for me to understand). I am thinking that you, @Maureen, have worked closely with the information you have from these sessions and might have the answer to this question:

What do you do after you have found that you have a certain planet in a certain house? How to proceed into the exploration?

Is it simply just googling the planet's meaning - Venus, for example? And then combining the meaning of the planet (for example Venus) with Michael's information on the 5th House? Or what have you done?


Thank you in advance!
