Michael Fassbender - Astrological Profile

Michael Fassbender is considered by most to be one of the best actors of our day. He’s my favorite male actor right about now and I find his screen presence as fascinating, magnetic, and transformative as the next film fan. He garnered himself an Oscar nomination in 2014 for his role in 12 Years a Slave but has consistently been turning in excellent and gritty work throughout the years, whether in small independent films, flashy blockbusters, or anything in-between. I love analyzing actors’ charts and seeing what it is that makes them tick and drives their work and their impact on the public. But, I haven't done one in a long time. So, let’s see what’s going on in Fassbender’s chart!

He was born on April 2, 1977 in Heidelberg, Germany at 12:30 AM, the younger of two children to Josef and Adele Fassbender. Though he was born in Germany, which is his father’s nationality, he was primarily raised in Ireland, giving him that off-screen accent we know and love. His astrological stats make him an Aries Sun with a Virgo Moon and a Sagittarius Ascendant. I think Michael is highly reminiscent of Marlon Brando, more than any other modern actor, and Brando was also an Aries with a Sagittarius rising.

His Ascendant is what gives him that cheery, delightful persona he has in person. Celebrities’ Rising signs are what people experience when they meet them and it can often defy expectations or preconceived notions of them. For all of the dark, unsettling, intense roles Michael takes on, his Sagittarius rising allows you to meet a really upbeat, lighthearted, fun-loving guy. In fact, one of his former directors, David Cronenberg, once affectionately described him as “annoyingly cheerful.”

Yet, we also see Neptune in Sagittarius conjunct the Ascendant and in the 1st. This brings another element to Michael’s demeanor and one-on-one persona. His Sagittarius Ascendant makes him a goofy ball of fun. But, his Neptune rising makes him essentially mysterious and even unreachable, somehow. People with Neptune rising are not exactly who you think they are. They’re real chameleons, in both their projections of themselves and in their actual look. This fits Fassbender, who has a way of looking like a different person, from one picture to the next, that is the trademark of Neptune rising. 

It’s also visible in his interviews. Neptune rising in Sagittarius is an intriguing combination, creating a real free spirit who is expressive, vivid, and funny but who can never be easily pinned down or known. In fact, Neptune is a massive influence in Michael’s chart, explaining why he’s such a great actor. Not only is it rising but there are a lot of aspects from Neptune to his personal planets: a trine to the Sun and Venus, as well as a square to both the Moon and Mars, which is in Pisces. This explains why he needed to be an actor. He’s a true escapist, thriving on the feeling of slipping into another person’s skin and living out his fantasies.

Neptune square the Moon and Mars is also what he probably unconsciously drew on to portray the self-destructing sex addict in Shame. Even though actors love to disappear and be other people, the roles they play are often startling reflectors of their charts. His portrayal of Brandon was the embodiment of a frustrated Pisces Mars square Neptune, in particular, which can be especially vulnerable to sexual addiction because the fantasy and the high of sex becomes so all-consuming and better than actual intimacy. Not to say that Michael is a sex addict in his spare time! But, actors are drawing on their astrological energies all the time in their roles, especially since it gives them a chance to act out these darker archetypes without actually bringing them into their personal life.

There is a famous scene in Shame where Michael went full-frontal. And it’s funny that it brought him so much attention because he’s not the first actor to do that. Some credit it to the, ahem, size of what was going on down below. But, it’s also because of him having Pluto conjunct his Libra Midheaven. Those with Pluto conjunct the Midheaven can easily become known as sex symbols in a really overwhelming way that drives the public wild. People’s reactions to Michael are really powerful. He inspires lust or, at the very least, acknowledgement of his sexiness in the majority of people, no matter what your sexual orientation is or anything. Pluto on the Midheaven gives a person an immense power over their public and with Libra in the mix, it’s the sheer power of attractiveness.

With the Midheaven in Libra, he is publicly known as a nice guy as well as a particularly beautiful, attractive one. His frequent director, Steve McQueen, gave this interesting quote that speaks to the effect of Michael’s Libra Midheaven androgyny. “He’s a very visceral male person. He’s a man but, at the same time, there’s an extraordinary femininity, tenderness and openness, and I think that’s the appeal.” Libra is an intellectual blend of masculine-feminine, so it makes real sense. Michael leaves his mark on us as being, somehow, more refined, elegant, and graceful than the macho ideal. And that sophisticated charm casts a formidable spell on us via his Pluto influence.

His Pluto in Libra is opposing his Sun in Aries and Venus in Aries in the 4th. In fact, there’s an intriguing polarity in his chart between Libra and Aries. His Sun is exactly conjunct the Nadir and, therefore, exactly opposite his Midheaven. He also has the North Node in Libra in the 10th opposing his Aries Venus is which conjunct his Aries South Node. Therefore, with a Libra Midheaven and North Node, our worldly (Midheaven) and spiritual (North Node) life purposes, the qualities Michael is reaching for in this lifetime are very concentrated. He is on a truly Libra mission this time around: to be fair, objective, thoughtful, and artistic. It’s a significant challenge for him to keep working toward becoming these Libra traits, which only makes it that much more satisfying when he does.

The Aries traits, meanwhile, are a comfort zone for him in a way that goes really deep. The North Node-South Node axis is a true part of your soul, while the Nadir is what’s going to make you comfortable in private. So, his foundation is highly Aries, maybe even to his detriment. He confessed once, in an interview, that he’d never been in a relationship for more than two years because of his self-involved focus. Venus in Aries conjunct the South Node can definitely do that! Venus on the South Node would make him deeply comfortable in relationships yet, thanks to it being in Aries, only if they go his way. So, there are some conflicts there that need working out, like all of us with our North and South Node.

A celebrity’s Midheaven and Rising sign are the filters through which we see them. There’s their overall impact and status (Midheaven) and the person we expect to meet (Rising). That’s what we know them for, more than their Sun or Moon, unless these planets are conjunct the Midheaven or Rising. This is especially true for Michael, since his Sun in Aries is opposing the Midheaven. So, his truest self comes out in private. Sun in the 4th conjunct the Nadir also brings intense pride in one’s home and roots. Michael still lives in the same apartment he lived in while struggling as an actor through his 20’s, seeing it as a point of pride to stay there, in spite of how far he’s come. The foundations that he lays down truly define who he is, way more than anything he achieves in the world.

It’s also interesting with him having oppositions from the Sun and Venus to Pluto. This makes him a highly intense person and his career (Midheaven) acts as an outlet for that intensity (Pluto). I’ve found that amongst the best working actors, the majority of them have some significant Pluto aspect to their inner planets. Plutonians are extremely magnetic, charismatic, and sexually alluring, as well as capable of fearlessly confronting difficult, complex emotions and parts of the human psyche. All ingredients for a great actor! Sun opposite Pluto and Venus opposite Pluto is just another reason why he has such visceral sex appeal. But, Michael can be prone to projection, with these oppositions. It might be way more comfortable for him to project his shadow material on to his characters or anyone else than himself. That brings an imbalance into his life that needs correcting.

His Moon sign is in Virgo. Just to prove how perfect astrology is, one interview with him actually began with him apologizing for having a messy apartment, expressing a bit of a complex about his mother, which is symbolized by his Moon (“Just give me two seconds to do a little bit of a sort of tidy-up”, he requests. “My mother wouldn’t be happy.” He then goes on about how his mother was a stickler for cleanliness while growing up). The imagination, intuition, and emotion that acting requires makes actors prone to preparing for and going about their roles in ways that strongly reflect their Moon. The obsessive-compulsive side of the Virgo Moon is evident in Michael’s process, as he apparently reads a script close to 300 to 350 times before shooting! The anal nature of scrutinizing every possible detail makes him feel free to do whatever once the cameras actually roll.

His rigorous, detail-oriented Virgo Moon is in the 9th, bringing that sharp clarity toward his philosophies and belief systems. This placement only reinforces his Sagittarius Rising by giving him a deep inner need to explore everything around him. But, he will do so with a very critical, logical Virgo Moon filter. His beliefs are supported by clear facts, as well, and when faced with the beliefs and the lessons of others, he has to carefully scrutinize them before agreeing. He can also bounce back from things very easily, due to the blend of Virgo problem-solving and 9th House optimism. He certainly won't wallow in his feelings for long.

It’s a combination that makes him a wild child, on the inside, who still has the common sense to not get too wild. The Moon is also sextile Uranus and opposite Mars. So, rest assured that he will fight for his freedom, his space, and what he wants! Beneficial Jupiter is his chart ruler and is placed in the 5th House. With a 5th House Jupiter ruling his chart, Michael’s life unfolds in a way that’s all about living in the moment and embracing the unknown involved in the journey. And in the process, more and more doors will keep opening for him.

Cancer Midheaven: A Relative to the World

***Also for if you have Moon conjunct Midheaven

With the Midheaven in Cancer, you are on a life-long mission to give and receive comfort out in the world. Now, it’s not in the way that a Taurus Midheaven seeks comfort in society. Their motive is more about being nice and snug and secure in a practical way. For you, it’s more emotionally based. This is a curious, contradictory placement, in many ways, as Cancer is the opposite sign of Capricorn, which naturally rules the Midheaven. So, everything that people conventionally think of when it comes to ambition and career doesn’t apply for you, Cancer Midheaven. You are never ambitious for pure ambition’s sake, even if you want to make yourself believe you are. You are, instead, ambitious for how it makes you feel and how it makes others feel, as well.

There is usually a common theme here of growing up never feeling very at home while at home. Cancer Midheaven people are often uncomfortable with their family, in some form or another. It doesn’t mean you don’t love your family but it does mean that you never really felt fully at ease with them. The emotional security, understanding, or connection you craved from them was sorely lacking. So, from an early age, you turned to the world for this intimate connection. Yet, it can be difficult to find people in the world who care. This is why caring is such a major ambition for Cancer Midheaven people. You should not only strive to care for others but to also make people care for you. There is an overall agenda of empathy and humanity here that you must satisfy through your career. Whatever you do, it must be something that gets you in touch with the human soul.

For this reason, the arts is a very popular career choice for those with their Midheaven in Cancer. Being able to use your profession as an outlet for your feelings and needs is pretty ideal. Many remarkable actors and performers have a Cancer Midheaven, including Denzel Washington. The legendary actor is different from, say, DeNiro or Pacino or Day-Lewis in that he isn’t widely respected and recognized for his ability to transform or disappear, per se. It’s much more about how he completely gets in touch with the heart and soul of his characters on-screen. In doing so, in allowing his Cancer Midheaven to totally crack himself open and reveal his humanity, Denzel has established a very genuine emotional connection with his audience that’s lasted for decades.

Denzel Washington: Midheaven in Cancer
There’s also something highly familiar and comforting about seeing Denzel Washington on-screen. It’s like seeing an old loved one again. This is the relationship with your public that you develop, as well, with a Cancer Midheaven. Cancer represents intuition, which is another way to say that you “just know” something. And people in your community have a way of feeling like they “just know” who you are. This leads to a certain amount of fame for Cancer Midheaven people, whether it’s actual fame or being a neighborhood celebrity. Your goal of finding a comforting family environment in the world makes people respond to you as if you were their relative. So, there’s a very accessible, let-your-guard-down ease that people feel around you. After all, fame is dependent on the projection of a certain intimacy and you excel at this, whether you mean to or not.

Often times, it’s actually unconscious, which is why people’s reactions to you in the world can overwhelm you as much as they pleasantly surprise you. In the end, you’re just going through society, reacting to everything and everyone. The rigidity and lack of comfort you felt at home, on some level, led you to develop an agenda, as a teenager, to just go out in the world and be completely natural. The thought of developing a public image never really sets in for Cancer Midheaven people because you just want to totally go with the flow of how you feel and what’s happening. This gave you a very uncalculated approach to your peers in high school that reinforced this sense that you were a very real person whom they could get to know a lot more.

Since I think the Midheaven really starts taking control in the high school years, this is a time where you start becoming quite a lunatic. It’s not exactly that you weren’t well-behaved, even though many Cancer Midheaven teenagers can definitely go crazy during this time. But, it’s just that you began operating so highly on emotion and instinct, in a world that values more control and restraint, that you just projected something very raw and immediate, even sort of animalistic. This begins your life-long reputation for sort of “spilling over” in some form or another. Cancer Midheaven has a way of being this full glass, in public, that’s about to tip over at any moment. Sometimes, your joy or warmth or other positive feelings threaten to spill over. Other times? Well, feelings that could cause an even bigger mess seem ready to burst out at any moment in your worldly ventures.

This is the struggle you deal with of knowing what to express and when. At times, you act on your feelings so much and so readily, throughout your life path, that it could cause you to do things that just make no sense in front of the world. Midheaven in Cancer can be the subject of well-known emotional breakdowns or really disastrous public scenes that become the talk of the town. That’s why, again, it’s so important to use your career as an outlet for your emotions. You might not become an award-winning actor like Denzel. But, just finding a profession that allows you to feed other people emotionally, in some sense, may also be something that really balances you out.

As an authority figure, you are bound to go against the hardened, strictly business routine that some might expect from their boss. Instead, Cancer Midheaven bosses are usually the warm and fuzzy ones who make everyone feel right at home. Even if you try to play it tougher and more practical, your sensitivity typically gives itself away, in most situations. You will feel for your employees and give them a sense that they’re an important person in a family, instead of just a number in a corporate setting. It’s important not to become too much of a bleeding heart, though, as you might find yourself being such a softie that people can easily sway your emotions all the time. You do have to learn to not give and give and give.

You expect to receive, as well, which is why it can be very devastating when you don’t get the intended response you want from those in your workplace or community. Midheaven in Cancer does give you this intense neediness when it comes to the world. Your career is a source of high vulnerability for you, which you might hate but just have to deal with. You can tell yourself that your mean boss doesn’t affect you or that it doesn’t really matter that nobody turned up to your fundraising event. But, it actually really hurts you! It’s important, therefore, for you to learn to not take people’s reactions so personally. You know that your success is dependent on how people respond to you, which is why your profession makes you feel so vulnerable. We’re all vulnerable on this public stage. It’s just that you’re deeply attuned to this, especially since this is a placement that’s often a big target for bullying while growing up. But, instead of this making you feel really scared or insecure or defenseless, know that, most of the time, people’s reactions don’t have much to do with you. Their meanness or unresponsiveness or coldness is just their problem.

However, you find the most professional fulfillment from finding a way to alleviate the coldness of the world. This often leads Cancer Midheaven people into a lot of charity work, helping to take care of the sick, the unprivileged, or the neglected. It’s also what urges you to create a family of your own. This can take on many forms. Since you most likely didn’t really start off with the relatives you truly needed in life, your Midheaven in Cancer makes you quite determined to find those relatives out in the world. Surrogate families are often your specialty. But, the big one is actually creating your own family, which tends to be a major life goal with this placement. Of course, not all Cancer Midheaven people start a family and have kids. But, the ones who do so follow this goal with a determination and commitment that might be greater than their commitment to their career.

Denzel Washington is widely known as a family man, thanks to his Cancer Midheaven, with a unit that’s lasted for decades, in a very stable way that is unlike the typical Hollywood family. You’re such a caregiver, to your community and/or to your actual family, that it’s bound to be a part of your reputation. Parenting is what may very well fulfill you more than anything. Though most people say that raising children is the best thing they’ve ever done, Cancer Midheaven folks believe that on a really profound level. It can be your most important achievement.

This again brings to our attention the contradiction of a Cancer Midheaven. Your commitment to your family and personal life is really strong and is bound to overthrow any sort of careerism. Those with the Midheaven in Cancer are usually very relaxed when it comes to their profession. Ruthless ambition or becoming a workaholic is not the focus here. You probably won’t have much of a problem with extended time off, enjoying the opportunity to be with your family and loved ones. However, the public also considers you like a part of their family. So, they’re going to really miss you while you’re gone! This emotional connection to your public still rings within and motivates you to get back out there. So, a constant flowing between an equally deep love of home and career will define your life. Finding the balance is key. Your career is always going through these phases, so it’s good to know when to wax and wane when it comes to your professional activity.

And this flow is what leads you to success. Midheaven in Cancer people have to learn how to simply allow things to happen in their profession, instead of trying to “make things happen.” Don’t get me wrong. You still have to work hard and everything. But, you cannot force your agenda on to the world, like some other Midheaven signs have the luxury of doing. Instead, a certain passivity is actually your strength, as it unlocks your intuition. And intuition is your greatest weapon! Back in your teens, you just deeply knew what it was that you had to do with your life, even if you couldn’t fully articulate it or explain it. You might have kept it to yourself, creating a long-held pattern of being sort of secretive or mysterious about your ambitions or life plans. You didn’t need to tell your parents or your counselor everything, or maybe even anything, about this inner knowledge of what the future held. You just sought to unconsciously ride the waves to your destination.

Such an attitude is what allows your career to unfold in ways that are constantly surprising but, also, make complete sense. When success happens, it just hits you like a tidal wave, more than the average person. But, you somehow “just know” that it was supposed to happen like that. It’s an amazing gift that gets you ahead in the world, especially since you’re not wildly interested in getting ahead in the world. Cancer Midheaven individuals rely a lot on other people’s moves to make their own worldly moves. In a way, this is a smart career strategy, as it allows you to always adapt to whatever ball’s being thrown at you. But, other times, it might be a bit too passive. Remember that you also have to do some of the ball-throwing yourself, sometimes.

Yet, you really do seek to be comfortable in the world, so you don’t want to over-exert yourself. When you’re out and about, you do have a way of seeming very at ease. At the same time, you can get defensive or frightened when you’re uncertain of your environment. This is when your sharp instincts come in handy. Cancer Midheaven folks seem to deeply sense when danger’s around the corner in the world and know how to steer clear of it. In a funny way, the world seems to keep you safe, especially since you so easily tug on the heartstrings of others. Your moods and feelings are all the way out there, so there’s little to no hiding them in public. But, something about you can bring out the tender side of even total strangers. As long as you remain generally unguarded, you might benefit a lot from the kindness of those within your community. And seeing the goodness in others can be enough to remind you of how being unguarded and accessible can be a beautiful thing, making you kinder to those in your community, as well. It’s a wonderful give and take!

The 6th House: Signs and Planets

I’m going to be doing articles on all of the houses from now on and I figure that I might as well do descriptions of all of the signs and/or planets in each house, especially since it’s quite hard to find information on the signs in the houses. I already did it for the 5th. And even though I just wrote my article on the 6th House a few days ago, I put off doing it for that house, appropriately enough. Everyone’s guilty of a bit of procrastination regarding the 6th.

Just to reiterate, the 6th House is the house of everything you have to get done every day. Yes, work can fall under that umbrella but just about everything that’s a chore or a task is work, whether it’s your actual job or that other stuff on the to-do list. The 6th House is also the house of health, describing the mind-body dynamic that can either boost our health or make it suffer. If you have an empty 6th House, look at the sign on the 6th House cusp to see how this all plays out. If you have planets in the 6th, they drive your routine every day, in either predictable or uncontrollable ways.

6th House in Aries and/or Mars in the 6th House
You take an aggressive approach to each day. You don’t stop to think too much about what you have to do because that’s oddly depressing for you. You’d rather just burn through the day, which can either make you compulsively productive, unable to tolerate idle periods, or very selfish about your agenda, wanting things to happen how you want them to. You can easily get mad when your plans mess up and you need to learn to not try and force everything to happen.  

Your health tends to be vigorous and robust. Getting sick can be a rarity for you and you get over it very quickly. This is because you’ve got it in your head that you have so much to do. There’s just no time to be sick! It’s to a point where you don’t even really think much about getting sick, giving you quite a bad-ass immune system. Other people can be coughing up a storm around you and you don’t even catch it. Why would you? It’s not your problem.

6th House in Taurus
There is a sluggishness to how you get things done through the day. You’re quite blessed with an ability to not get anxious or worried about much, if anything. It’ll get finished when it gets finished. Therefore, you might actually manage to be more productive than most people, even if it takes you longer to do things, because you don’t overexert your energy in stress or tension. In fact, there’s often something very enjoyable and relaxing about your routine.

This slowness can also translate into your health, which gives you a pretty extended recovery time. Colds and illnesses might really stick to you, lasting for what seems like weeks. But, this can also be because you don’t jump on these illnesses when they arise as quickly as you sometimes should. So, it just builds and builds into a prolonged sickness. However, there is also great potential, with this placement, to go the opposite route and build a very durable immune system.

6th House in Gemini and/or Mercury in the 6th House
You’re a master at multi-tasking, with a clever ability to take on different tasks at once. You can juggle your chores and your work like nobody’s business. There’s also a real clarity here that allows you to observe things in your daily routine that others miss and, as a result, take a more logical approach. Yet, you cannot tolerate boredom from day-to-day. When you work, it has to be stimulating and you have a knack for constantly switching things up so they don’t get stale.

Health can be a manic or bi-polar area of your life, making you switch from being as healthy as a horse to having an overloaded immune system. This is usually due to your thoughts, as there is often an obsessive hypochondriac on your shoulder, making you over-think health issues. The mind-body link is especially powerful for you and you must learn how to wield it. Gaining clarity of your thoughts is what will keep you healthy, allowing your body to be as cleansed as your mind.

6th House in Cancer and/or Moon in the 6th House
How each day unfolds all depends on your mood. You can get very emotionally worked up over your routines because you seek an innate safety and comfort from these daily rhythms. Therefore, things not going as scheduled can really upset you. But, they often don’t go as scheduled because you get so upset! Stress takes a deep toll on you, so remember to just find comfort in the little things themselves. You’re a total creature of habit and feel at ease doing the same thing every day.

Being so easily stressed can take immediate toll on your health. But, these illnesses often come and go. Getting sick is usually a sign that you’re not in a good place emotionally or not taking good care of yourself. So, a cold or something will pop up to get you to tend to yourself for a while. You’re also very good at nurturing others back to health. Your favorite thing to do is to play nurse or doctor, immediately responding with comforting solutions once someone is feeling under the weather.

6th House in Leo and/or Sun in the 6th House
You want to be the boss of your routine and you organize your days so they revolve around you, in some way. You might do a lot of things for others but you often do so for the self-importance that it gives you. But, don’t go around demanding attention for helping other people because you should be doing that to genuinely help. This position also gives you the ability to make your day feel exciting and vibrant; at least to you. Even if those chores bore everyone else, they’re fun to you!

There can be something quite heroic about your immune system. You can get yourself back to good health out of sheer strength of will. In fact, you might make something of a drama out of being sick, seeing it as an opportunity to show how strong you can be by overcoming it. You may also be quite bossy when it comes to others’ health, feeling the need to lead them toward a lifestyle that is more organic or nutritious. It might often annoy others, especially since you tend to be right.

6th House in Virgo
You basically live for routines, even if you don’t want to admit it. You’re the kind of person who absolutely loves scheduling their day and planning everything they have to do. But, this might not leave much room for spontaneity and fluidity. You have to realize when you’re being too militant about your plan. Things mess up all the time and you’ll feel even more efficient and capable when you can respond to these malfunctions without malfunctioning yourself.

You may also be a total health nut, embracing a very organic, clean way of living. But, while some with this placement might be the health-conscious gym rats who never smoke and always diet, there can be some who are the opposite. You might be very messy with your health, out of some inner compulsion to improve. Knowing that you’re not so healthy is something that can keep you humble and always give you something to work on, instead of already being perfect.

6th House in Libra and/or Venus in the 6th House
Relating to others is a big part of your daily routine, which brings your personal bonds into a very mundane sphere. You are perfectly fine with a romantic life or friendships that aren’t too spontaneous or exciting. In fact, you find great pleasure in sharing all the “boring” stuff with someone else, believing that this is what allows people to truly connect. Yet, you might have too much of a plan when it comes to the other person and need to give them more space to flow.

The health of others might sometimes be more important to you than your own health. There can be co-dependency here, through you making sure that your partner or friend is staying on top of their diet or exercise regimen. There may be too much enmeshment, which can also make it very easy for you to catch what others have. However, you just feel healthier when everyone else around you is good, too. So, it’ll help to make that commitment to healthy living a joint effort.

6th House in Scorpio and/or Pluto in the 6th House
You gain a feeling of control from your daily routine but might also become too obsessive about it. When things don’t go as planned, it can feel like a battle for control or power. So, letting go of your preconceived ideas of what’s supposed to happen is key. You are capable of enormous hard work, to the point of giving every ounce of your energy into all the little things. But, be aware of going to extremes, as you can give away all of your reserves to your work and then feel empty.

Health issues can plague you more than the next person, to the point where staying healthy feels like a virtual struggle to survive. Serious health problems or traumas can occur. However, obsessing over your pain is what makes it worse, as well as unhealthy obsessive thoughts, in general. You can find great empowerment through mastering your mind-body link, allowing your health to experience a total overhaul. The deep healing and transformation of one’s immune system is the focus here.

6th House in Sagittarius and/or Jupiter in the 6th House
Each day must unfold like an adventure for you. The feeling of never knowing what’s around the corner will give you an inner sense of inspiration that allows those mundane tasks to become truly enlightening. A strong belief in the Greater Plan is necessary for you to feel more efficient. You can be excessively productive but also easily put way too much on your plate. It’s good that you believe so much in your efficiency yet it can lead to an overconfidence that makes you overworked.

Sometimes, it might seem like there’s no limit to the stress that comes your way, which is the kind of thing that can make you sick all the time via your thoughts. However, a tireless buoyancy can also be developed when faced with stress that sends you the other way and makes you amazingly healthy. You can go years without getting sick. The importance of mind-body awareness is very pronounced here, making you quite an enthusiastic healer when faced with unhealthy souls.

6th House in Capricorn and/or Saturn in the 6th House
The tasks and duties of each day can be very intimidating and challenging for you. It can feel like every little thing is a climb up a mountain. How you deal or don’t deal with this difficulty is the test. You must realize that you can set ridiculously high standards for yourself, as if each little thing you do has to be incredible and faultless. When you can overcome this attitude and relax more into your routine, you’ll find that you have the enormous stamina and dedication you need to accomplish all.

A rather debilitated health is usually an essential problem for this placement. You struggle with a deep anticipation of something terrible happening every day and these worries can severely affect your health. And you can simply worry a lot about your health, to a degree that becomes self-fulfilling. You must learn to only focus on solutions to health issues and not the potential disasters. When you do, you’ll find yourself develop an increasingly strong, reliable immune system.

6th House in Aquarius and/or Uranus in the 6th House
There is a real method to your madness, even if no one else really understands it. Even if you do have a plan for what you're going to do every day, it never sticks. So you regularly rely on just winging it. This is what actually brings consistency into your daily routine, as you adhere to the intuitive insights you always get that tell you exactly what to do. It’s just your way and others must give you the freedom to work in your own idiosyncratic way. If not, you can cause chaos out of sheer frustration.

Unusual methods toward staying healthy are usually your forte. You’re open to just about any odd remedy or healing practice there is out there. However, you’re not really one to take health advice from others. You’re quite defiant in this way and you might even feel compelled to rebel against your diet or your exercise routine. You can abruptly break off, just when you were getting used to it, and find another one, experiencing a breakthrough idea of a better way to stay healthy.

It might be very hard, if seemingly impossible, for you to stick to a daily plan. You aren’t really interested in mapping out each and every day. Instead, you’re very open to surrendering to the plan of unseen forces. While that is spiritually fulfilling, it can prevent you from being as productive as you sometimes should be. Thinking about the work you need to do can be confusing or overwhelming. Yet, when you’re really inspired, you can also get deeply lost in the groove of work.

You’ll spend at least a portion of your life with a highly vulnerable immune system. You’re always catching illnesses from others yet it’s difficult to say where it’s all coming from. This is the kind of thing that can make you very paranoid about your health and a massive germaphobe. Yet, your health will be strengthened by focusing your energy on healing others, within boundaries. Your mind-body link is very symbiotic and immediately strengthened by making others healthier.
