  • Hello Martin,
    I have mercury as the 1st lord in 6th house along with sun and south node in scorpio.
    Mars in libra with Venus in 5th. What will be the results,good or bad?

    (For info-Mars in scorpio in D9)

    • Hello

      1st house lord Mercury in 6th house Scorpio makes one overly aggressive and disputatious. They are experts in making conspiracies or see behind the scenes. They are prompted to work very hard to attain profits. It is likely that they will have a slightly immature approach to finances which can catch them into economic difficulties forcing them to work more for their livelihood.

      With this combination, it is important to avoid becoming jealous or refrain from taking action caused by envy or it will cause long-lasting troubles and misfortunes.

      However, Sun in Scorpio with Mercury makes them extremely wise and knowledgeable in topics that conduct important research.

      Best wishes

      • I see. I have Jupiter in cancer (in2h)so will it help this conjunction and how will south node influence it ?

        Thanks for your answer, I appreciate it.
