6th house is ultra hard to figure out and experience. i am always thinking about this and wondering how to all of the 6th house elements together and 6th house is mercury ruled and we all know how variable and elusive that mercury is, so he also brings many positive qualities because he rules and exalts in virgo so there is good skills mentally and dextrously, the capacity to learn new abilities quickly and become competent at many different skills and competencies, an inherent understanding of pure health and its relationship to mind and body (but they can ignore this lol), domestic pets like our dogs and parrots like is this another part of ‘something else has needs and exist and i want to make sure this time they are recognised’ and these people make great professional healers and therapists like nurses, physios, counsellors, spiritual healers, because they can coalesce their natural health knowledge, intricate hands that dress wounds and hold the hand of a frightened person. A LOT of problem solving goes on in medical industries. there is a lot of nobility and personal development associated with the 6th house, and it is not a BORING house its not just about boring routine and the washing, it can be the ritual of the morning beauty routine for venus in the 6th or sex for pluto or meditation for neptune.
i love liz greene’s quotes on the 6th house the most
“Planets in the 6th ask us to acknowledge our interconnectedness with the invisible world, and do what we can to express the relationship in the rituals of our everyday lives"
“The 6th house has always had a poor press. Generally equated with duty, service, and health, it has also suffered the indignity of being given rulership over small animals. But this house will not yield up its secrets without considering the nature of Mercury, its natural ruler. Mercury has many functions in myth. But whatever he is doing – guarding travelers, helping theives, acting as messenger for the Olympians, inventing musical instruments, or guiding the souls of the dead – he is the god of borders, interfaces and connections. The 6th house is the interface between what is above and what is below. Although it is earthy, it is also the arena where everything we have developed through the preceding five houses is given form and anchored in everyday life.“
well heres a lot of love for our 6th house angels. in the shadows in work and service AND it seems in astrology
