Learn about the planetary joys scheme and its relevance in interpreting the houses of the horoscope.

From Lynn: The Planetary Joys were a revelation to me. When I first came across them, in the early 1990s, as remnants of the astrology resurging from the past, they were puzzling. Why did the Moon have its Joy in the 3rd house? Or Mars in the 6th? As I pondered them, they led to a shift in my thinking about the houses, stretching their significance and meaning.

The Joys are an example of the tremendous fertilization brought into astrology from ancient texts, in this case, Hellenistic astrology. Beyond technique, their significance for psyche, for a modern, interpersonal approach to astrology, is particularly potent.
