Loonsounds asks, regarding sins of the father…
“Astrology question, Elsa, may I ask how you have determined sins of the father in the eighth house? Are you calculating 12th from the 9th, considering 9th as father and his 12 (12 from the 9) as representing the fathers sins? thanks much, ~L”
Loonsounds, I am sorry what I wrote was misleading. I have not determined the 8th house = sins of the father, specifically. In my mind the 8th house inherits, period.
The 8th house person carries the legacy for whatever. The father, the mother, the lover, the entire collective… whatever is shown by the planets in the 8th. It is not specific, but all encompassing and it has or holds no value judgment.
I think the idea of the father’s sins being visited on the son have little merit. I’m just intensely curious what others think, so I asked the question.
I have Mars and Mercury in the 9th. I want to know what people believe. If you read the question, it makes no comment around my belief and “sins of the father”. I would never use that language or phrase because I don’t think like that at all.
