Aspects of the Ascendent
The Ascendent of the Sibly chart only makes one close aspect, the semi-square to Pluto. With Pluto in the second house and ruling the twelfth house, we would despair (Pluto) about and go about transforming (Pluto) our money and values (2nd house) in order to deal with our sense of helplessness (12th house) and the transforming would be a source of irritation (semi-square) with regard to our mass personality (Ascendent).
The Ascendent of the constitution chart makes two close aspects, the square to Mars in the third house, ruling the sixth house and, jointly with Pluto, the twelfth and firsts houses; and the trine to Uranus in the eighth house, ruling the third house.
With regard to Mars, our battling (Mars) with our neighbors (third house) would be a source of tension and struggle (square) with regard to our self-image (the Ascendent) and the battling would affect our armed services (6th house) and the health of our country (6th house) as well as driving a sense of helplessness (12th house) which would influence our joint personality (1st house).
With regard to Uranus, our looking forward (Uranus) toward support from others (8th house) – which would affect our neighbors, communications, modes of transportation (3rd house) – would have a link of ease and luck (trine) with our collective self-image (the Ascendent). It would be easy for us to get support from other countries through our appearance and personality.
Points in the First House
The Sibly chart does not have any of the points that I am using in the first house or the nodes either. I guess, according to the Sibly chart, the impression we make on others is not a strong issue for us.
The constitution chart has the North Node, Ceres, and Pallas in Sagittarius in the first house. The North Node is within two degrees of the Ascendent. An adjective of Sagittarius is free, an adverb freely. With the North Node being what we are popular for, the constitution chart indicates we would be popular for our free self-image. We would have good timing in our image and joint personality. Like the Ascendent, the North Node is in a close trine with Uranus, which means the South Node is sextile Uranus. So the energy of Uranus – setting goals with respect to support from others and joint finances – links good timing and popularity and poor timing and unpopularity with an easy flow of energy.
Ceres and Pallas are in the last decanate of Sagittarius, near the second house cusp. I think, that is it is my opinion, that points at the end of a house, near the cusp of the next house, indicate energies that are expressed in areas of their house in order to bring about areas in the next house. While I feel that the four major asteroids are subsumed into Vulcan, I will comment on their placements. Ceres is mothering, also seasons cycling, and Pallas is being a daughter, also being a woman in business, so we would project an image of farming freely and free female enterprising to bring about a sense of self worth and to build our resources.
Rulers of the Ascendent
In the constitution chart, the Ascendent is ruled by Pluto and Mars, while the first house is also partly ruled by Jupiter through the interception of Sagittarius. Pluto and Mars are found in the third house in Aquarius. Pluto makes no very close aspects.
With Mars and Pluto in Aquarius in the third house, radical ideas motivated the bringing of the constitution into effect. And behind the radical ideas was Uranus in Leo in the eight house – radicalizing kingly power – setting goals for creative joint resources.
Mars is square the Ascendent, as noted above, and makes a trine to Juno in Libra in the eleventh house. Juno is the wife in the four part division of female energy and Juno was terribly jealous of Jupiter (with reason). We would go into battle easily if our goals include being justly, womanly jealous and the battle would cause us to struggle with our self-image.
Jupiter was in Cancer in the eighth house in a semi-square to the Moon in the seventh house. Proselytizing patriotically about our joint resources would be there in our joint personality and would result in irritation to our public emotions.
In the Sibly chart, Jupiter was in Cancer too, but in the seventh house, and inconjunct the South Node while semi-sextile (not an aspect that I have included – but will use here) the North Node. So, our image would be ruled by our patriotic proselytizing to our close allies and open enemies. The proselytizing would be in an edgy relationship with unpopularity and poor timing, but popularity and good timing would bring growth in the proselytizing.
