Astrological Oracle Cards Reading for Angular Houses

Proving once again my inability to resist temptation, I recently acquired the Astrological Oracle Cards by Lunaea Weatherstone, with artwork by Antonella Castelli (Lo Scarabeo).

In the Astrological Oracle Cards, there are 12 Zodiac Sign cards and 9 Planet cards, which include the luminaries, the Sun and the Moon.

I am going to do a variation of the well-known “horoscope” spread. Rather than looking at all twelve houses, I am focusing on the four houses that sit on the “angles” of the zodiac wheel:


First House: identity, ego, what makes me uniquely me
Fourth House: home and family, what makes me feel secure
Seventh House: committed partnerships
Tenth House: ambition, career, social status

What I am looking for in this reading is insight into what I might need to deal with or be aware of in each of these areas of life over the next six months. The messages in quotes, below, are from the guidebook that accompanies this deck. I am finding these messages to have great meaning for me in this reading!


First House: identity, ego, what makes me uniquely me
NEPTUNE in PISCES“Be a vessel of deep compassion”
I have to love this one. Neptune (planet of visions and dreams) rules Pisces (dreamy, imaginative, psychic, spiritual), giving Neptune-in-Pisces a lot of power. Over the next six months, my identity or Self is likely to experience expanded, strong energy that fuels my imagination, visions, and perception. However, there is also a need to beware of wishful thinking, illusions, deceptions, and escapism. A periodic “reality check” will be helpful.

Fourth House: home and family, what makes me feel secure
JUPITER in VIRGO“Don’t miss the big picture by obsessing over details.”
In the area of home, family, and security, I see the energy of Jupiter (planet of generosity, good fortune, and expansiveness) in Virgo (clarity, attention to detail, critical). What I will want to do is put Jupiter’s expansiveness to a positive use to expand Virgo’s devotion to service and gift for healing, taking care not to allow Virgo’s overly critical, sensitive, detail-focused nature to get out of hand.

Seventh House: committed partnerships
MERCURY in ARIES “Assert your point of view but don’t bully.”
Over the next six months, my relationship with my husband may experience the energy of Mercury (planet of the mind, intelligence, wit, and communication) in Aries (force of will, impulsiveness, boldness). I would boil this down to the need to think before I act, communicate my intentions, and temper my willfulness with careful consideration.

Tenth House: ambition, career, social status
SATURN in LIBRA“Do not let fear immobilize you.”
Saturn (planet of limitations, boundaries, and duty) rules the 10th House, so his appearance here should be helpful. Furthermore, Saturn is exalted in Libra (harmony, the arts, partnerships, fairness). What I see here is the importance of recognizing appropriate limitations or duties with respect to my ambitions, career, and social status – while at the same time not allowing Saturn to cramp my style to an extreme degree. Libra feels like a positive presence in this area of my life as long as I don’t let the sign’s famous indecisiveness and vagueness keep me from accomplishing what I want to accomplish.

  1. This is a great idea, taking the potential 'overwhelm' factor out of a traditional horoscope spread. The cards are lovely. I think I'll use this with my Oracle of the Radiant Sun deck. Thanks for sharing.
