Can Astrology Identify a Collector Of...

Collecting & Collectors

2nd & 5th House Give Clues

Recently a Facebook Friend asked this astrological question.

"I love to collect beautiful things. Where do you find this in a chart?"

The chart always tells us what a person likes, what they will spend their money on, and what they value most. Additionally based on the signs involved, we can see if they like to collect these things, give them away, or hoard them.

So let's take a look at this chart and see what kinds of collecting, this FB friend may enjoy and why.

The second house has Gemini on the cusp indicating the individual values ideas, communication, and anything that communicates. This will usually include; people, books, and various forms of art.

Gemini is a Mutable Air Sign, and it does not hoard.

But we must look to the ruler of Gemini and its placement to learn more.

Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and we find it deposited in 7th house in Scorpio.

Scorpio is a Fixed Water Sign, and can be a collector, and may even be a hoarder of things. But it must be something the holds some mystery for the individual. Something that reveals a deeper meaning, or that transforms in some way would be valued by the individual.

Now let's look at the 5th house. This is the house of hobbies, and investments. Here we find everything that a person loves, from people to things.

The 5th house has Libra on the cusp, while Pluto is very close to the cusp, and Uranus is deposited here in Libra. (Also note it is at 22 degrees trining the cusp of the 2nd house.)

Libra indicates the individual falls in love with beautiful people and beautiful things. They also invest in beauty that builds conversations and relationships.

Libra is a Cardinal Air Sign, and is not known to hoard or collect specifically.

But when we look to Venus, the ruler of Libra, we note it is deposited in the end of the 6th house close to the 7th house cusp, and it is in the sign of Scorpio. So it reinforces the Mercury's trend from the 2nd house, and indicates the individual will be drawn to collect beautiful, intriguing, transformational, mysterious art.

The influence of Uranus adds a sudden fallen in and out of love with things. So from time to time the individual may find themselves releasing, or giving away, collections, as they suddenly fall in love with new ones.

The fact that Mercury is in the 7th indicates that they may be influenced through one-on-one conversations.

The fact that Venus is in the 6th indicates that they may find some of their collectibles through the workplace, or socializing with co-workers.

So after viewing all of this, I was not surprised that this FB friend enjoys Hatchlings & has beautiful apartment in Yoville!

With this information, now you can take a look at your chart or the chart of a friend, and discover if they are a collector and what they may like to collect. This of course can be very useful if you are buying presents.
