Hi Ernst and All,
In Vault of the Heavens page 73 you write:
"These effects, though given for the lagna, may also be put to use
when analyzing any house:
1. The native will express the qualities of the rasi in the area of life
that the house in question represents.
2. The native will also be developing the opposing sign in respect to
the original house in question."
For developing some house, Can I Investe the focus on opposing sign and not on the house sign? like Rahu-Ketu axe (the grow is towards Rahu)?
ex. If I have 11 house in Tourus, I consider this house like a Lagna and apply this concept of Vault of the Heavens page 66:
The native with Taurus lagna is in a process of considering the
value of that which their life consists of. They look at themselves,
what they have acquired, and their lives to see if it is worth it, and if
not what needs to be fulfilled in order to make it worthwhile. There
is an emphasis on developing that which they consider of value,
which generally are those things that provide physical security, well-
being and joy. Though naturally pragmatic, the hardships and
struggles of the world reveals to them what is important to them,
what they get out of what they do, and what they want to identify
The evolutionary goal is to develop the opposing quality of
Scorpio. What is valuable as well is that which there is an emotional
or inner need for. It is recognizing that it is the inner security which
things give that is valuable, not merely the material security.
Generally they must suffer some loss and crisis in order to realize
this, which turns them to look where their needs are not being
fulfilled. This generally gives partners that create some crisis in their
lives, or a partner that suffers some crisis, in order to awaken them to
their need for inner security."
(the "partner" is the opposite site of the Yin\Yang than I have to develop of create the Completion of the house)
Yes, you can take that in the context of the 11th and 5th houses.
