Seeing Eye to Eye: the Astrology of Brothers and Sisters

Our siblings can be companions or rivals, mirrors for the best and worst of ourselves. How wonderful to have a sibling as a guide, how terrible to encounter a bully. These first relationships carry an important imprint for later life, they affect our capacity for distance and closeness, our ability to communicate, to connect and let go. There are often powerful stories to unwind as we get older. The idealized sibling, the troubled brother or sister, or the one struck by some kind of fate, all play a huge role in our future selves. The third house is traditionally associated with siblings, and its “shadow houses” the second and eighth, speak to the issues of envy and possession, always so prominent in these relationships. Examples from class participants will be welcome.
