The Vital Role of Astrology in Real Estate (Part II)
In the first-part article of this real estate astrology series, I highlighted the importance of timing in real estate business such as when to buy, when to sell, and when to invest. Astrology thrives on timing and the planetary movements and alignments can indicate opportunities and challenges a realtor or client may encounter in their dealings with real estate.

In this second-part article, I was asked to further elaborate on the House placements in Western Astrology on an individual’s natal chart (client, realtor or aspiring realtor) and their implications on property transactions. In addition, I elaborated on the how one can identify whether the Real Estate vocation is suitable career choice for an aspiring realtor.
Q: Can you explain the concept of the twelve individual houses in Western Astrology?
A: Sure, the twelve houses in Western Astrology represent different facets of a person’s life. They range from the 1st house, which signifies self, to the 12th house, which signifies self-undoing and spiritual development. Each house has its unique symbolism and areas of life that it governs.
Q: How do these houses relate to property transactions?
A: The 2nd, 4th, and 8th houses are typically involved in real estate matters. The 2nd house rules personal assets and income. It can show how you earn money or accumulate possessions, including property. The 4th house, the house of home and heritage, often relates to property you own or your living situation. The 8th house deals with shared resources and inheritance. It could indicate wealth acquired through marriage or legacy, including property.
Q: What about astrological aspects? How do they impact these property transactions?
A: Astrological aspects represent the angles planets make to one another on the astrological wheel, symbolizing different energies and potential events. For example, if you have a positive aspect like a trine or sextile between Jupiter (planet of abundance) and Venus (planet of material comfort), and it involves the 2nd house (personal wealth) and 4th house (home and property), it may indicate a fortunate period for purchasing or selling a house.
Here’s another example. Let’s say you have a harmonious sextile aspect between the Sun (representing the self and life force) in your 4th house (representing home and property) and Neptune (representing dreams, spirituality, and intuition) in your 2nd house (representing wealth and personal assets) — either one can be natal or transiting planets. This could indicate a period where you’re in tune with your dreams and instincts regarding property matters. It might be an excellent time to invest in real estate or renovate your home, as your intuition and personal drive are working harmoniously to manifest wealth through property-related endeavors. Your sensitivity towards the needs of the market or what a property could become could lead you to make advantageous decisions in real estate.
Q: And negative aspects?
A: Negative aspects like squares or oppositions can create challenges. For instance, an opposition between Saturn (planet of restriction) in your 4th house and Mars (planet of conflict) in your 10th house (career) might signify difficulties related to property connected with your work. I briefly illustrated how negative aspects are like in my previous article.
Q: What are specific indicators on the birth chart on how suitable one is in taking on the real estate vocation?
A: A person with a strong 2nd, 4th, or 8th house or planets in earth signs like Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn may be drawn to real estate. A prominent Venus can signify an appreciation for aesthetics and comfort, useful in real estate. If Saturn (discipline) and Mercury (communication) are favourably aspected, it could indicate the ability to handle the business side of real estate.
Q: Any particular aspects to look for?
A: Trines or sextiles involving the 2nd, 4th, and 10th houses are positive. For example, a trine between Mercury in the 2nd house and Mars in the 10th could indicate a person adept at negotiations and strategic planning – both crucial in real estate. Also, the conjunction of Jupiter and Venus in any house could indicate a knack for attracting wealth and luxury, including through property.
Q: Any final thoughts, Frederick?
A: Astrology offers insights, but remember, it’s not a standalone decision-making tool. The stars may influence who we are, but we determine our actions to shape what we become. For anyone contemplating real estate, I’d suggest thorough research and professional advice alongside astrological guidance.
