In the 6th we can actually see ways in which we give into escapism. While the 12th is normally associated with fantasies, escapism, and illusions, “if we find we are unable to cope in a competitive world we may conjure up excuses to give us an escape route.” -The Cosmic Egg Timer
Here we can see how compulsive behavior can sometimes manifest or how the practical world shapes our habits. Water in this house may get drained easily, escaping into art and recreation frequently.
Earth accepts the reality of work and life easier but can find it hard to destress. Earth can make work a habit or create unhealthy habits to deal with over work such as lacking in exercise or over eating - essentially becoming unbalanced, they put all their energy towards work.
Air can use distractions to find their “escape route”. Here is one who could use a lot of excuses when they can’t deal with the real world. Don’t mistake this as not being ambitious or successful. Air may deal with reality through variety, taking on odd jobs, always moving on.
Fire can easily burn themselves out. This is someone who needs to physically or verbally release energy. Here we see the exaggerated complainer at work or maybe the always needs to go to the gym after work person. Compulsion revolves around releasing steam.
Burn to invoke the powers of the element of air, or to increase intellectual powers, to obtain travel, for communication, study and concentration or to end drug addiction. Smolder during divinatory rituals.

it’s hard to feel grounded and in your body. you can be lost with your head in the clouds. findimg it hard to tie down your free-floating ideas to tangible, daily effort. your mind keeps you awake with insomnia. high-strung with erratic breathing (possibly a smoker). you dissipate your energy by talking, texting, emailing, etc. you feel like you can’t organize your thoughts. there’s too much static and not enough space or room to breathe.

I love ur interpretations!! 💞 What are some placements that give off the “girl next door” energy? Like, maybe, cause someone to be unaware of the impression they leave on people. (Ex. the girl who’s rlly smart but is an airhead when it comes to matters of romance/emotion, etc)
Thank you so much, I’m so glad that you like them!!~💘~
Girl next door…
Air with Earth dominance (Air makes them bubbly and approachable, but Earth makes them pragmatic and responsible, creating the typical “good girl” type)
Air and Fire dominance or placements esp. Gemini/Sag/Aquarius/Aries (can makes people airheads even if they are really smart)
Earth/Cancer/Pisces/Libra/Gemini rising or dominant (first impressions and basic interactions with others make them seem sweet and calm)
Dominant 4th/6th/7th (caring of others on a personal level)
Dominant and developed 2nd/3rd/6th/10th/11th (caring of the community, sometimes can be overachievers/dependable/wet blankets, but that’s more so 6th/10th)
Uranus/Saturn/Mars/Pluto/Fire signs in 12th house (they hid their anger thus come off as super sweet and chill but inside they’re dying their hair and shaving off their eyebrows)
Unaware of impressions…
Mutable/Air/Water rising/MC/dominanceor 1st/10th house lord in a Mutable house (has no personality, I’m kidding. Their presence is able to shift due to mutable factors; others energy, environment and their own feelings)
Neptune/Uranus/Saturn/Pluto in 1st/7th/10th or harshly aspecting personal planets (physical expressions are hidden/restricted thus others get different impressions from the true them.)
Dominant 10th/personal planets in 10th esp. when they square Asc (the idea of the self is more in focus than the actual projection of the self, like the people who think that they are or must be a certain way while others see them as a different way)
Dominant 7th esp with Asc oppositions and/or squares to 10th (soaks up others projections, they can seem like a canvas whose paint has been stripped when others walk away. Expressions are indecisive)
Harsh aspects between personal planets esp Venus and Mars (Venus rules sociability, Mars is drive/action so when those get confused the way we interact with others gets confused as well)
Multiple 1st/10th house rulers or a lot of rulers in 1st/10th (the public houses are stretch out and can’t concentrate on one way of expressing themselves)
Planets conjuncts Asc from 12th (the unconscious is expressed and shown to others without actually meaning to do it or recognizing it)
Afflicted Sun, Moon, Rising, MC (the key parts of the personality/self is hard to understand)
Heavy 9th/8th/12th vibes (”why the fuck are we even here” “where am I”)
I’m one of those people that started watching Brie Larson movies after Captain Marvel and because she’s such a cinnamon roll I didn’t expect to see her doing sexual scenes like in The Trouble with Bliss?? YEAH DIDN’T EXPECT TO SEE HER WALK OUT OF THAT ROOM IN ONLY HER UNDERWEAR CHSBWBAN
I enjoyed every second of it after I learned how to breathe again
Despite the name the Air people are anything but ‘air heads’. In fact they are extremely well known for being switched-on creatures whose minds are forever racing and thinking deeply about one thing or another. Air people are well known for their free-spirited nature and they’re the kinds of people that will go out and live life on their own terms instead of trying to conform to somebody else’s rules or standards.
Because they often live so much in their mind they can come across as somewhat detached which can make it extremely hard for others to figure out what exactly it is that’s going on in that head of theirs.
