Doorway 12: Faith, Imagination & Spirituality

Doorway 12 is the final door of our map. Doorway 12 corresponds with Pisces, ruled by the planet Neptune, God of the Sea. Its overarching theme is releasing the form of things in order for something new to occur. Here, we complete, surrender, let go and let Goddess. This is the area where what was solid becomes more diffuse. Illusions are common, as things are not always as they seem.

Faith is one of the topics of this doorway. Imagination and the subconscious mind are here, too. Our ability to imagine may be connected to what we hold in our subconscious mind. Spirituality and psychic matters are part of this house, as well as things we prefer to keep hidden, such as clandestine meetings.

Doorway 11: Friends, Dreams & Social Life

In Doorway 11 we find higher aspirations and social connections that enhance our lives. Friendship, groups, humanitarian causes, associations, wishes and dreams are found here. Doorway 11 corresponds with Aquarius, ruled by the unconventional planet, Uranus. This where we meet others who are equals, and do something together. Group activities of all kinds are 11th house territory.

This is where you dream of a better world and join with others who are on the same wavelength, sharing your ideals. This is where wishes come true. This is literally the energetic climate in which your dreams can become reality.

Friendships can range from close friends to acquaintances, with whom you share common interests. These are the people who are easy to spend time with, and whose company you enjoy.

This is the house of hope and possibility, wild imagination, the power and promise of the people, and what can happen when we join forces.

Doorway 10: Career, Ambition & Reputation

In Doorway 10, the natural position of the astrological sign of Capricorn and its planetary ruler, Saturn, we see our standing, in the world. Here’s where we see evidence of what we have made of our professional lives, what others know about us, and where we meet the world. This is the realm of career, reputation, responsibility, public image, ambition, and authority.

Doorway 10 and Doorway 4, its opposite, are the doorways that represent your parents. Traditionally, Doorway 4 shows the relationship to the mother or nurturing parent, and Doorway 10 shows the relationship to the father or structuring parent.

The themes of Doorway 10 can richly reward your life, but those rewards typically come as a result of hard work, over many years. This is where you discover your work in the world. Not just a job, but a career that you do over many years or decades, that allows you to develop your character and abilities, and grow into your potential so you can realize your aspirations and share your talents with the world.

Doorway 9: Travel, Truth & Intuition

As we enter Doorway 9 we lighten up and expand our horizons. This house corresponds to the sign of Sagittarius, ruled by the beneficent planet Jupiter. The symbol for Sagittarius is the Centaur, half man and half horse, representing intellect and instinct. In this house, we address our relationship to philosophy and beliefs. Doorway 9 is where we develop knowledge and seek truth through higher education, travel and cultivate our intuition. This is the house of published writing, as well.

In the 9th House, we go from the explorations of what we learned early in life, in the 3rd House, to exploring higher ideas and ideals of people, cultures, and beliefs that are far different than your own.

The depths we reach in considering the mysteries and matters of Doorway 8, shows us how high our arrows of truth and inspiration can fly in the affairs of Doorway 9.

Travel, here, is long distance travel as opposed to short trips. This is travel that can be life-changing, expanding our horizons, leaving us profoundly different than we were before we set off on the journey.

Doorway 8: Sex, Death & Rebirth

As we enter Doorway 8 we turn up the intensity. This house corresponds to the sign of Scorpio, ruled by the planet Pluto, Lord of the Underworld. This is where we address our relationship to transformation. Doorway 8 is where we share resources, alchemically change ourselves through healing, and our relationships become sexual. This is where we die to our old selves and are reborn. This is the house of the occult, where secret knowledge is shared. The 8th Doorway is about inheritance and taxes, too.

We cross the map, from the explorations of personal money and values, in Doorway 2, to Doorway 8 where we consider our relationship to other people’s money, and resources that are shared, whether in a marriage, business partnership or inheritance. This house is about taking the personal resources we have and making more of them, through investments, for example. This is also where we find overlooked resources that have been neglected or abandoned and restore them to value again, as in antiques or old houses.

They say death and taxes are the only sure things in life and the 8th House is where we find them both. Many of the topics in this house are not discussed in polite company. Some of these topics are considered off-limits because we were taught they are shameful. Some of them are complex, and those who don’t know what we know just wouldn’t understand.

This house includes the ways in which we transform and become more powerful.

Doorway 7: Partnership, Relationship & Contracts

Doorway 7 introduces us to The Other. This doorway corresponds with Libra, ruled by the planet Venus. In this house, we address our relationship to partnerships with other people and the themes that support it. This is the house of marriage, partnerships, legal contracts, commitments to others, justice and our sense of fair play.

In the 7th House, we go from the explorations and development of The Self, in the first six doorways, to interactions and agreements with The Other. This house is about committed relationships and legally binding contracts.

Here’s where all of the inner development and grounding yourself in familial foundations gets put to the test. Have you developed yourself enough to be confident in who you are and what you desire? Are you ready to commit to partnering with another, whether it be a romantic relationship heading toward marriage; or a business partnership, in which you join forces with another person to do a project or start a business?

This house is about any formal one-on-one arrangement, so services like counseling and tutoring also belong here.

Justice is a 7th House theme, so we are also considering your relationship to contracts, lawyers, and sense of fair play. Think of the statue of Lady Justice, blindfolded, holding the scales.

The planet Venus, named for the Goddess of Love, is concerned with quality, equality, refinement, and the dynamic balancing of the scales, whether of Justice or in a marriage.

Doorway 6: Health, Service & Well-Being

Doorway 6 introduces personal development. This house corresponds to the sign of Virgo, ruled by Mercury. In this house, we address your relationship to well-being and the themes that support it. This is the house of health, hygiene, diet and exercise, daily routine, our pets, and the service we offer the world.

In the Sixth House, you take care of yourself and offer help and service to others. You create daily routines that add up, over time and make a visible difference in the quality of your life. If your routines are healthy, your life will follow suit. If your routines are full of bad habits, you will see the results of those choices. In this house, the little everyday things create the bigger picture.

Your pets fall under the rulership of this house. It’s interesting that research has shown that pets contribute to good health in those who care for them. Work, as opposed to a career, and service are also behind Doorway 6.

Doorway 5: Passion, Creativity & Romance

Doorway 5 opens to a new phase of our journey. We’ve gone from our foundations of home and family in Doorway 4, to a lightening, and stirring of the energy. This doorway corresponds with Leo, ruled by the Sun, the heart of our solar system. Doorway 5 is all about Love: that which we create with love—children and artistic endeavors, love affairs, our passions and favorite pastimes. This is the house where your heart is open, your creativity is heightened, and your spirits are fully engaged.

Love affairs here, refer to passionate but uncommitted relationships. Marriage and legal partnerships are in a different category. Doorway 5 is about love that takes you by the heart and sweeps you up in its joyful rhythm.

Children, in this house, can mean your physical offspring or can be a child of the mind—an original performance, event, song, or painting. If the themes of this house sound like familiar ground, you probably already enjoy spending time with children and/or creative pursuits.

Doorway 1: The Self, Personality & Appearance

Today, our Goddess Revolution adventure begins. Each day we’ll explore different aspects of feminine power, from the perspective of the astrological houses.

Doorway 1 is the door to different facets of your relationship to Self. Doorway 1 corresponds with Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, ruled by the planet named for the God of War, Mars. Themes behind Doorway 1 cover how you are seen (appearance), what you are comfortable showing the world (personality), which often is only a fraction of who you know yourself to be, and how you see and know yourself (self-image).

Doorway 1 also includes your identity, physical body, personal sense of style, the way you dress, and the attitudes with which you lead.

The Self is the starting point for everything else in your life. Some of us are comfortable being in our bodies. Some of us lead with strong personality traits. Some of us stand out. Some of us prefer to blend in. Notice how you show up.

As we explore the Doorways, through the daily topics, we invite you to consider, how you express these areas of your life, today, and if there is something you’d like to update.

Every day we’ll invite you to create an energetic foundation for your writing. You can do your own process if you like. It does shift possible outcomes when you come from an expanded and super connected orientation.
