Last week I put in an inquiry about a position somewhere else in the company where I work. Today, I heard back from the lady who scheduled the interview with me and after we agreed on a time, I went and drew up the chart for that moment to see what my chances were or to see if I could find any sort of problems that were likely to disqualify me from consideration. The chart is posted below.
So, Taurus rises and the Lord of the Hour is Venus, which sets a nice, pleasant tone for a first meeting/interview. Things are likely to be polite, agreeable, and as delightful as possible for such a stressful situation. Before we assign siginifactors, we have to look at what’s happening in this event; one party is interviewing another. Essentially, one person is performing an interview and the other person is receiving it. In this instance, I am the one receiving an interview, I’m the one being asked questions. In event astrology, the party that receives an event or has one acted upon them takes the Seventh house whereas the party that is initiating the event or acting it out takes the First. So, I get the seventh house and Mars, whereas the interviewer gets the first and Venus.
Immediately, I am very disappointed with my significator. In a day chart, Mars is peregrine in Pisces (reflecting that I’ve really never done this type of work before) making him powerless in his situation. Mars has some accidental dignity being in the Eleventh house (have had experience in the various duties of the job), but also has some pretty unfortunate accidental debility with the Combustion of the Sun, though he’s almost cleared of it. This does not look good.
Venus is representing my interviewer, she’s in Aquarius which is a pretty good sign for someone in her position, sanguine and talkative, but straight-laced and to the point. This probably even describes her physically as a woman of medium stature with shorter/medium, probably light colored hair and glasses with a fashionable and noticeable color (I’ve never met this woman before, so I’ll be interested in how close that is) Venus is in the Tenth house, showing that she’s very in control of the situation.
So now we can look at the relationship between these two planets. Mars is in the exaltation, triplicity, and term of Venus and so is received by her, but Mars doesn’t receive Venus which doesn’t make it a mutual reception, even if it did, however, there is no aspect between the two to cement the reception. This is a good sign though, showing that the interviewer is receptive and open to me. Mars applies a sextile to the Ascendant, and Venus applies a Square to the Descendant, though the degree on the Descendant is in Venus’s triplicity in term, lessening the Square’s effect through a perfect reception. There may be hope yet!
The job itself is the Tenth house and Saturn. Saturn is in Libra, retrograde, and in a cadent house, not aspecting the Seventh house or its lord. It doesn’t look like I’ll get the position simply do to that. There’s a very closer relationship between Venus and Saturn, the two are seeking to Trine in mutual reception, which is a very clear sign that the job will stay with her, and that I will not be offered it. There may be a bit of a saving throw in this, though, as the antiscia of Saturn is 4° from Mars, and vice- versa, though I think 4° for the orb of an antiscia is a bit wide.
Finally, the Moon is Void in Aries, showing that if the interview progresses, it will be through much difficulty. Lilly shares that events begun under Void of Course Moons progress so difficultly and painstakingly that the querent often wishes he had never begun the endeavor. Pleasant…
I’ll update this through the comments section as it unfolds.
