Brighton Astrology Circle: The Water Houses and the Soul of the Family

A virtual talk with Carole Taylor

The 4th, 8th and 12th houses are said to have an affinity with the water signs. Water can be taken as a symbol of the unconscious, an element outside of time where we encounter soul and the deep mysteries of psychic life. These houses also connect us to our family, the 4th as the alembic of home and the lineage of our family tree, the 8th as hidden elements below the surface of family life, and the 12th as unresolved disturbances inherited from the past. The water houses say a great deal about these emotional and psychological legacies as elements of the soul of the family, the arc of something working itself out through successive generations.

We will explore the idea of the family soul through the lens of the water houses, thinking about how the ancestors create the context of our own lives and how our life contributes to the ongoing story of the family to which we belong.
