Sixth House

The Sixth House is commonly referred to as the House of Health. Implicit in maintaining good health is the ability to cope in the face of adversity, and this theme rings true here!

As human beings, we naturally have shortcomings. What will you do with them? How will you react in the face of a personal crisis? Crises, illnesses, and reversals of fortune are all part of our natural life. How you confront these situations and deal with the lessons they invariably teach helps to define the person you will become.

Work and service are central to the Sixth House. The focus here is on employment (employers and employees), training, those who serve you (along with those you serve), and those who depend on you. Keeping yourself strong throughout these efforts is also important here, which is why this house focuses on health (good and bad), diet, fitness, and hygiene.

The House addresses how essential the work we do in life is, and the work we do on our self. Duty, responsibility, and personal growth all contribute to the creation of a fully-realised being.

The Sixth House also addresses daily routine: what will I wear today? Do I need a haircut? Has the dog been fed? These simple matters keep our engines humming and enable us to do the important work of our choosing.

The Sixth House is ruled by Virgo and the planet Mercury.
