When you map your natal chart, you can see the positions of all the planets in the sky at the time of your birth, not simply where the sun rises and sets.
“A stellium occurs when three or more planets are concentrated in a single zodiac sign or house in someone’s chart,” the twins explain. “Babies born in the summer of 2020 will have a stellium in Capricorn, because Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto are all in Capricorn,” they explain. Having Mars, Mercury, and Saturn all in the fifth house is another example (which relates to romance, love, and creativity).
In some cases, people’s charts may have more than one stellium (i.e., three planets in Sag and three in the eighth house).
Is it beneficial to have a stellium?
A stellium draws attention to certain attributes, characteristics, and themes in your life. In some ways, it makes your personality stronger and potentially more defined. A stellium is so powerful that it has the potential to tame the force of your solar signif your sun sign isn’t engaged in your stellium, that is. For example, if your stellium is in Scorpio but your sun is in Libra, you might be a lot more introspective, emotional, and intrigued by all things macabre and taboo than the ordinary Libra.
What does stellium mean to you?
A stellium in your birth chart indicates that you have three or more planets in one sign. Keep in mind that in astrology, the sun and moon are considered planets. So, if your Mars, Venus, and moon are all in the sign of Pisces, you have a Pisces Stellium.
In a stellium, how many planets are there?
Personal planets such as the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars, and Venus are included in a stellium with a wow factor. If your personal planets are clustered with the slow-moving outer planets, you have a strong connection to your generation’s mission or the current climate.
Does stellium count if it’s rising?
A stellium is a grouping of three or more planets that appears in a person’s birth chart. These three planets, plus one, must all be in the same house and sign. These planets may or may not be in conjunction, however this is not usually the case.
Some astrologers disagree with this description, but it is one of the more frequently accepted ideas, and I have found enough evidence in my experience to support the theory that stellium energy is created by three or more planets.
In the example above, you can see that this person has a three-planet stellium in Pisces’ 9th house (Chiron, Mercury, and Neptune) and a four-planet stellium in Pisces’ 10th house (Mars, Moon, Sun, and Venus). Uranus, despite being in the 10th house, is not a member of the stellium because it is in the sign of Aries. Because it is neither a planet nor a luminary, the Midheaven is not included in this stellium.
The Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, and Chiron are the only luminaries/planets that make up a stellium. Stelliums do not contain things like the North Node, South Node, Ascendant, Descendant, Midheaven, and so on because they are not physical bodies.
Stelliums reflect the native’s seat of power, as well as a concentrated attention on that house’s location over the native’s lifespan. Whatever sign the stellium is in will be an important component of that person’s personality, representing reasons and themes within the house’s greater lesson.
The absence of stelliums in a chart does not indicate anything undesirable or harmful. It’s fine if many people don’t have them. It simply indicates that there will be greater balance in life themes, rather than a single focus or preoccupation throughout one’s existence.
Stelliums are frequently employed in the study of cultural or mass events. When a stellium appears in the chart during a historical or present event, it indicates that the event is imbued with the energy of that house and sign. We’ll go over that in greater detail in a later piece.
You must look at the house the stellium is in and what that house represents in order to understand how the stellium’s energy will manifest. Houses frequently depict external events in our life, while the sign of the planets in this house depicts how we respond to these events. The 9th and 10th house stelliums of Pisces, for example, imply an emphasis on broad thought, philosophy, and travel (9th house) and economics and stability (10th house), which are handled in a sensitive, dreamy, almost unconscious manner in the sample chart above (Pisces). It will be natural for the native to devote a significant amount of mental energy to speculating on possibilities, and they may even make a career out of it. The stellium of the 10th house shows a propensity for leadership, but as Pisces is the sign of “martyrdom,” the native may take on leadership duties in order to aid others to the point of stress.
Also, keep an eye on which planets are present in the stellium. The presence of some planets, such as Pluto, could imply that the stellium’s energy has a compulsive nature. Neptune could indicate an unconscious aspect, implying that the native is unaware of the stellium’s energy. Uranus will give the stellium’s essence a new twist (i.e. Uranus in a 2nd house stellium will encourage the native to earn money through a unique career). Saturn will teach you lesson after lesson about the theme of the house.
What does having four planets in one house mean?
In Hindu astrology, Sanyasa yogas are planetary conditions or combinations that indicate Sanyasa in specific nativities (horoscopes). Pravrajya yogas are another name for Sanyasa yogas. They are fortunate yogas.
When four or more powerful planets align in one house or sign, Sanyasa yoga is formed; the kind or type of Sanyasa embraced is determined by the strongest planet in that group of planets. If the Sun is the strongest planet in the chart, the person has high morals and intellectual prowess, and will choose severe and austere practices in remote locations; if the Moon is the strongest planet in the chart, the practice is in seclusion, and more in the study of scriptures; if Mercury is the strongest planet in the chart, one is easily influenced by others’ philosophy; if Mars is the strongest planet in the chart, one wears red-colored clothing and struggles to control his temper; if The strongest indicator of Sanyasa is the presence of the lord of the 10th house in this conjunction of four or more planets. If those four or more planets align in a kendra or trikona, the person achieves Moksha; however, if they align in the eighth house, there will be Yogabhrashta, or a break in yoga-operation, and the person will fall from the final stage of liberation. There will be no sanyasa if the strongest of the conjoining planets is combust, and if it is defeated in planetary combat, one returns to worldly life after adopting sanyasa. When the Moon is in a drekkena of Saturn and is aspected by Mars and Saturn, or when the Moon is in a navamsa of Mars and is aspected by Saturn, Sanyasa is indicated. If the dispositor of the Moon is aspected by Saturn and no other planet, or if all planets in a single house or sign are aspected by Saturn, or if Jupiter is in the 9th house and Saturn aspects the lagna (Ascendant), the Moon, and Jupiter, such a person will write Shastras and found a school of philosophy, and if Saturn is not aspected by any planet is in the 9th house, such a person will take to s
Is it necessary for a stellium to live in the same house?
Three or more planets must be grouped together in the same zodiac sign (or astrological house, if you’re looking at a birth chart) to be considered a stellium. Because if there are only two, it’s most likely just a conjunction aspect, which happens quite regularly.
Many astrologers believe that if the planetary grouping contains either the sun or the moon, the number of planets required to form a stellium increases to four. This is most likely due to the fact that the sun and moon move fast through the signs and hence align with other planets more frequently than most.
If you were born during a planetary stellium, your birth chart will reflect this, and the energy of the stellium sign will most likely be present in your personality. Stelliums can also develop in a birth chart when planets are crowded closely together in one astrological house (versus one zodiac sign). The themes of that house would be affected by the surge of energy even more than the zodiac signs engaged in this scenario.
What To Expect From A Stellium
We should anticipate to sense an inflow of that sign’s energy, both personally and collectively, with so many planets bringing their often-conflicting personalities to one sector of the zodiac. This can be unsettling at times, as having such a strong planetary focus on just one aspect of our lives can make us feel overwhelmed. On the other side, it can be a fantastic opportunity to connect with the stellium’s zodiac sign energy and learn whatever lessons it has to offer.
The planets involved can also be used to determine the vibe of a stellium. Expect to feel the energy in an intimate way if there are numerous personal planets present (such as the sun, moon, Mercury, Venus, or Mars). This might alter your personality, mood, and relationships. If more distant, transpersonal planets (such as Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, or Pluto) are involved, the stellium’s energy will most likely be portrayed in a more collective and encompassing fashion.
In February 2021, for example, six planets will be closely concentrated in Aquarius, emphasizing the Aquarian attributes of creativity, progressive thinking, community focus, and technological achievements. The Aquarius vibe will be felt heavily in our day-to-day lives and on a broader collective scale because this stellium includes personal planets (sun, moon, Mercury, and Venus), as well as slower-moving social planets Saturn and Jupiter.
