Astrology Advice: Will I Sell My House This Year? Buy a New One?

Astrology Advice - Real Estate Horoscope - Rest on Flight to Egypt


After 9 years of marriage, I fell in love with a man who later ruined my life. With him I have a house which we bought together, and is up for sale for the last 4 years! He lives in the house while I fled from it, a place once, for a short while, was my piece of paradise on earth. I am 50 years old, and I moved 17 times in my life, not to count the country. In the last 3 years I got close to new female friends, who are wealthy and buy apartments like they were new stockings. They were the ones who put the wish in my head to own something too. And now I am on my way – maybe – to do so. I have no money at all, my friend ruined me, I only have half of the house, which won’t sell. Will I sell the house this year, and should I venture to buy an apartment as an investment?


Nina Gryphon:

Dear G.,

That is a tough situation in which to find yourself; having friends who can afford the kind of real estate you can only dream about. And on top of that, having some real estate you’d wish you could sell right away! It sounds pretty frustrating.

For your kind of question, a horary chart (from the Greek: “of the hour”) is most suitable, and it is the horoscope cast for the moment I received your question. The answer lies within the horoscope cast for the question.

The chart does not look terribly promising for selling your house this year. You are symbolized by Mercury, ruler of the 1st house, and potential buyers by Jupiter, lord of the 7th. The two are not coming to an aspect, showing that there probably will not be an agreement this year. Similarly, the Moon is Void of Course, which means that it is not going to make any aspects before leaving its current sign of Pisces. Void of Course means “no action in the time frame of the question” if other testimonies concur. Combined with the lack of an aspect between Mercury and Jupiter, the odds are not in your favor. However, there is one redeeming feature here, which is that the Moon (your co-significator along with Mercury) is about to conjoin the Arabian Part of Fortune at 28 Pisces. This shows that there may be a small chance someone will buy the house this year. But I would not bet on this, especially if you are hoping to use the money from the sale of the house to finance your apartment purchase.

Let us take a look at the proposed apartment investment. Your money is signified by Venus, ruler of the second house of finances. Venus recently moved into Virgo, the sign of its fall, indicating that your money is not in great shape, just as you mention. That would make us a little hesistant to recommend making a major purchase such as an apartment. Too, Mercury, ruler of the 1st house, about to conjoin the malefic South Node speaks against changing the situation as it currently stands. When we have a “should I or shouldn’t I” question, we look at where the planet is going as the prospective change. Since Mercury is in a good place right now (in its rulership and exaltation in Virgo), but will shortly meet with the South Node, this says strongly “stay where you are.”

    Dear Nina,
    thank you so much for takink your time, and looking at my chart.
    I am not familiar to the horary chart, so I would like to ask you this:
    since the selling of the house is now under a few years, shouldn’t we use the progressed chart, and thus see the situation for the whole year ahead ?
    In the progressed chart, I have Venus in the 4H making 60* to Venus in the 6th in the PR.Couldn’t be this a good period that will be helped by this beneficiary star, and give the situation a “push ” ?
    Also , I read your article about one’s map beneficiar . Checking it by the modern ways- for me it would be Pluto – or Mars in a traditional map. But If I wanted to check by the tables of Lilly, well there I am lost completly.
    is this cerrect so far ? Is Pluto /Mars the ONE that can help me out in difficult periods?
    thank you so much, Nina,

    Dear G,

    I would not use a progressed chart, because a horary can show events decade in advance if it wants to. I am not sure what you mean by “map beneficiar” – do you mean the Lord of the Geniture? If Mars is indeed your strongest planet, it would be very helpful to you. You might want to consider a natal reading to determine if this is indeed the case.

    Dear Nina,
    Yes , I ment Lord of Geniture, which I understand is the Ruler of the Asc.
    so if my asc is 28 Sco- then it would be Pluto, or Mars, for those who do not use the outsiders.But if I was born only 10 minutes later, my LoG would be Jupiter.. so very confusing.
    thank you Nina
