Volunteering and giving
Hi all, I've forever wondered which planet/house relates to volunteering, and which relates to giving gifts.
You are going to laugh, but in one of my charts, I have my North node in the 8th house, and I think I totally misread that and decided that that meant I should do something in regards to emergencies (the 8th house is emergencies, is it not??), so I signed up to become a red cross volunteer. Now that I'm in the thick of training, I'm realizing how badly I misread that, and what in the world I was thinking. I don't feel like I'm fulfilling anything karmic by being a red cross volunteer, but hopefully at some point I'll feel useful!
So yes, please help me: which house is emergencies?
Which house is volunteering?
And then finally, I used to be such a great gift-giver in my youth, but now I get anxiety when someone's birthday is coming up as my ability to find the perfect gift has flown the coop, and I'm always late with whatever I do send. I want to get better- where do I look for that?
Thanks so much everyone!
8th house is emergencies, but that does not mean a person with 8th house needs to be a red cross volunteer, you dont need to search for emergencies when you have things in the 8th, they are searching for you, so hide. haha
the 12th is charity and volunteering.
Also, I believe that since 12th house it's a house of losses it's better to give out voluntarily rather than involuntary expenditures - it's better to do things by will, for instance I have Rahu in 12th and rather than imprisonment I did a lot of voluntary work for orphans, sick people juvenile offenders, and spent couple years almost recluded while doing this but it was by choice luckily, - I also donate food for athletes In special training
Ok thanks a lot, and what about gift-giving? I'm kind of thinking that's a second-house affair...? (According value to someone?)
Yes, that kind of giving gifts to friends and family is 2nd.
