first day at work (cusp of the 6th house)
Somewhere in the middle of my
teaching career in the school of astrology (which, at
the moment when I am writing this, is still one of my
jobs), I started to explain to my students the
importance of the cusp of every astrological house. I
immediately took the cusp of the 6th house as an
example, explained its meaning and asked the students to
explain their FIRST DAY AT WORK by interpreting the cusp
of their 6th house.
It gave me a great pleasure to listen to them and I
congratulated myself for the nth time on my (wise)
decision to choose my students only among those gifted

6th house represents job in every birth chart. In my
chart it begins at the 10th degree of Sagittarius. In my
sixth house there is Neptune which rules my tenth house
(director was born under the sign of Pisces) square Mars
(to build, workmen) in the fourth house in Virgo
(workmen). When I started my job, the works were still
under way and therefore, the workmen were also present
(Mars in Virgo).
6th house is ruled by Jupiter in Scorpio which is ruled
by Mars in Virgo.
didn't (square) understand (Neptune) workmen (Mars)
anything because they spoke in a foreign (Neptune in
Sagittarius- something foreign,
company is located in an old (10th degree has all the
symbolic of Sagittarius - old) building. Offices were
being refurbished (Jupiter, the ruler of the 6th house
in the sign of Scorpio – refurbishments).
first office I entered was grey (10th degree – degree of
Capricorn which means something dark, grey ). Everything
was dirty (10 the degree- degree of Capricorn –
something dirty) and there was a lot of garbage all
around (the ruler of the sixth house, Jupiter, in
Scorpio – garbage, Jupiter - plenty).
could not stand (square) the smell (Mars) of paint and
chemicals (Neptune), and when they started to lay down
the parquet floor (Neptune) it became even worse. The
parquet had to be laid down because Neptune is placed at
the 24th degree which symbolises Pisces – parquet.
my first day at work, the scandal (Neptune in the sixth
house) broke out (square) and the director (Neptune
rules my 10th house – director) had an argument ( Mars,
square) with the former employee (Mars in Virgo –
employee at the 22nd degree – degree of Capricorn –old,
I started to work I did not know exactly what my job
description was (Neptune in the sixth house at the 24th
degree – degree of Pisces).
There was a dog constantly sleeping in the office ( 6th
house represents pets, Neptune - sleep, in the 6th house

cusp of my 6th house beings at the 25th degree of
Capricorn. In this house, there is the Moon in Aquarius.
The ruler of the 6th house, Saturn, went to the 1st
house, which means that the job (6th house) „found“ me
(Ascendant, 1st house) through an old family friend.
Namely, the co-ruler of the 6th house, Uranus (a
friend), went to the 4th house (home) and is placed in
sextile with Saturn (old, someone older).
cusp of my 6th house is at the 25th degree (degree of
Aries), which speaks that I worked on the production
(degree of Aries – production) of dioptric glasses (Sun
opposition Moon – both planets rule eye-sight, glass).
Opposition (adverse aspect) of two LIGHTS – the Moon
and the Sun speaks that the production takes place due
to a problem (6th and 12th house are the houses of
health) with eyesight.
was my first job and on my first day at work I was in a
genuine Saturnian environment.
serious for my age, dressed in black, not accepted from
the start and indifferent about it (Saturn in the 1st
house), I found myself in a big dirt..... And only after
I had stained my clothes all over (Saturn), I was given
the white coat to wear as uniform (Saturn in the 1st
house in Virgo – working coat, uniform)...
yes, in addition I broke out in a rash (Saturn in
planet really ruled the day! At the time when I was
supposed to go home I was informed that I had to stay
MORE (Capricorn, Saturn – prolongation) without any
break or paid overtime. Saturn is placed near the cusp
of my 2nd house – no money, in the sign of Virgo – for
ADDITIONAL (Saturn) work. And
do you know what day it was when I started working?
Well, Saturday (Satur(n)DAY)!
However, as I was the only optician (Sun opposition
Moon) and had skills, I found it easy to get around to
work and I was allocated to all workplaces until I
finally got the right job, in accordance with my sign -
quality (Leo) control (Leo) of dioptric glasses (Sun

is how I got my job and how I spent my first day at
cusp of my sixth house (house describing our workplace)
begins at the second degree of Pisces – I work in a bank
(second degree has all the symbolic of the second sign
of Taurus which, among other things, symbolises banks).
e-mailed my CV ( the ruler of my sixth house, Neptune,
is in conjunction with Mars which rules my 3rd house
my surprise, I got the job on a religious holiday – St.
Petka (my sixth house is in Pisces – miracle, religious
Should I mention that it was Friday ?! Venus ruling
FRIDAY is exalted in Pisces.
did not know (Neptune rules the 6th house ) that they
invited me to a job interview. It was only in the
evening (Neptune - night) when I learned about this and
called my sister (Neptune, the ruler of the 6th house –
job conjunction Mars ruling my 3rd house– SISTER, at the
27th degree – degree of Gemini - sister), who answered
the phone (Mars at the 27th degree - Gemini) and was the
only one at home (Mars, Neptune in the 4th house – home)
when they called from the bank.
the time I was afraid that I would be late and I
literally got up before dawn and started to prepare
myself and, naturally, got to the interview much earlier
(Neptune – fear, night, before dawn).
Naturally, I did not know which job I was supposed to do
the interview for, because my sister had forgotten
(Neptune-mistake, forget – conjunction Mars, the ruler
of the third house at the 27th degree - sister ) to tell
me and thus, it was no wonder that I did not know that.
the interview started, the director was in a very good
mood and seemed as a person who was very good at selling
Director ( Sun in Libra ) made the impression of a very
cheerful and charming person . The Sun is in conjunction
with Mercury at the second degree of Libra and thus, my
director presented himself as a top – second degree –
salesperson – Mercury. He also made me wish to show him
my positive experience that in sales. In my horoscope,
Mercury and Sun are placed in the first house which
shows how we present ourselves to other people .
presented myself (Ascendant, the first house) as
communicative (Mercury), hard-working (Ascendant Virgo),
ambitious (Mercury coming from the 10th house, the Sun
in the 1st house), team player (Libra), successful
salesperson (Mercury conjunction Sun)...
addition, the ruler of my tenth house – to be a
director, a career - is Mercury going to my first house
– and thus, I found it easy to imitate my director and
present myself as a highly skilled person ( 2nd degree)
which should get that job.
crucial question which made him decide to give me this
job was if I could communicate well with the country
people!? And here, Mercury at the second degree ( degree
of Taurus – country) showed its influence. In a word
(Mercury), I succeeded in convincing him that I find it
easy to communicate with country people of a lower
educational background (2nd degree).
certainly had to be one of the first and most important
questions because Mercury is placed in the first house
conjunction the Sun (a very important thing).
told me to come to work on Monday. Neptune, the ruler of
the 6th house is at the 28th degree of Cancer, and this
degree has the symbolic of Cancer ( Moon, day - Monday).
started to work in the Call Centre and the bank I work
for was founded in Vienna.
guess which floor is the Call Centre on? In the loft,
near the church of St. Mark. Naturally, the loft and
church are symbolised by Pisces and their lord Neptune.
Until recently, the street where my job is was named
after the Russian general - General Ždan St. This is
explained by Mars in Sagittarius conjunction Neptune –
the ruler of my sixth house. Mars in Sagittarius is a
general, in conjunction with Neptune (Russia) it
produces a Russian general and the street had to have
such name because Mars is placed at the 27th degree
(degree of Gemini) which, among other things, symbolises
both streets and names …
really thought that on my first day at work I would stay
an hour or two instead of immediately start working. I
made a mistake and did not even bring some food for that
was wrong because Pisces (ruled by Neptune) signify a
mistake. I forgot ( Neptune – to forget) to bring some
food and I did not eat the whole day, which again can be
seen from the cusp of the 6th house at the second degree
which has the symbolic of Taurus - food.
