Anaretic degrees: How would you interpret them?
Inspired by a discussion yestersay, I got reminded of the fact that I'm surrounded by people who have at least one planet at 29 degrees, though I don't have any myself: My sister has 7th house Saturn at 29 degrees Libra. Her soon-to-be husband has 11th house Sun and Mercury in 29 Sagittarius, and my partner has Sun in 29 Cancer in the 7th sextile his 4th house Jupiter in 29 Taurus. Here's how it has materialized: all of them are teachers, with my partner becoming a teacher by accident (he is actually a programmer and a musician). Furthermore, both my sister and her soon-to-be husband were considered as eternal bachelors by the families, and yet not only are they to get married soon, but my sister is pregnant!
I would interpret the 29th degree as something that was not thought to happen, but it ended up happening in the blink of an eye.
How has it manifested in your case?
I have Pluto at 29 degrees Libra. Not exactly sure how it has manifested. I will have to give this some thought.
Maybe there's hope for me!
Good question! This is the analogy I use:
The anaretic degrees are like being at a restaurant and wanting a certain condiment. The condiment is in the building for sure, but it’s not at your table, or any other place you can see. You’d ask the waiter but he’s really busy; so is the staff behind the counter. So, you either make do without, wait for it, or go look for it yourself though it’s not your establishment, you don’t know where to look, and someone might think you’re weird.
The early degrees of a sign are like having every condiment right at your table.
I keep coming back to this, thanks for the prompt.
A relative of mine has Moon/Jupiter at 29Cancer. Got married one month out of college wanting to start a family (sense of urgency!), but had her first child at her SR and her second and final at 34. Delay, delay, delay then BAM!
I have Pluto 29* in Virgo on the cusp of my 5th house.
Never been married either. Definitely dodged some bullets there.
No children, but I'm a skating coach so I got the teacher thing. Raised up other people's kids (and some adults too).
I agree with the denial art of anaretic degrees. It was depressing for a while to realize I will never have bio kids or even get married but oh well.
There's a certain freedom in that. Except society wants some kind of explanation for that unusualness. (I have horns and a tail)
My Pluto is tangled up in a T square though so there are other factors.
