The last dwad in Gemini is Taurus. The idea being that each sign of the zodiac can itself be divided into twelve. You will note the ancient system of triplicity rulers fails this rule, because it presumably follows some other rule. Never second-guess the old guys! Chapter 2 are delineations for planets in the decanates, written in a general fashion, ie, for the Sun.
I read my solar decanate Humanitarian, Uranus-Venus, spiritual but didn't find myself in it. I suspect the author is writing to a private theory. The sign ruler is always the projector, whereas the decanate ruler is the receiver.
This made no sense no matter how I looked at it. Well, no, because planets that fall in the first decanate do not have a decanate aspect. But since the sign of the first decanate is always the same as the sign itself, would it not be correct that the first decanate has the same ruler as the sign as a whole? But instead, the decanate aspects you can read are those for planets which are in aspect and in the same element. In other words, if they are conjunct or trine.
Grebner doesn't say this, she simply lets you hang. With synastry it's just as limited: This satisfies the man's ego, and can truly be himself with this woman who knows how to love him. Which is a very limited way of using decanates, I think. Grebner goes on, page after page, with this rather narrow synastry. Decanates have rulers, pgs.
Which are in this order: You will immediately note these rulers are inconsistent with the signs of the decanates themselves Aries: For extra points you are wondering how seven planets are divided among 36 decanates.
Seems there's one too many decanates. Chapter 4 gives delineations for the decanate appearing on each house cusp. Since a lot of work went in to this chapter twelve delineations for each decanate, times three decanates, times twelve houses, equalsI dug out my chart to see if I could identify myself. People with my decanate Gemini-Libra rising are, seldom crude or coarse, and their friendly manner and good looks have instant appeal.
Love relationships, children, or art can help them project their best, and they are usually very fair with others. This can happen when the ruler of the seventh or fifth house is posited in the twelfth house, or the ruler is strongly aspecting a planet in the twelfth house or the ruler of the twelfth house. The ruler of the twelfth house posited in the seventh house is a little different.
This can be challenging for many, especially if unaware of this tendency, and the result can be rather compulsive and tumultuous relationships. With Venus retrograde, relationships are taken very seriously, and even more so if Venus is a relationship significator if it rules the seventh house, for example, or is found in the seventh house.
Relationship Potential in the Natal Chart
It is hard for the native to be objective when it comes to relationships and social affairs, and there is great sensitivity to ups and downs of partnership. Casual relationships are not considered very valuable to the Venus retrograde native, and relationships are rarely entered into lightly.
The seventh house represents the mirror, or relative identity.
It is through the seventh house that we try to strike a balance, through cooperation or competition. The ruler of the seventh house and its position by house can sometimes show where the native meets their partner, but this only happens in some cases. For example, the ruler of the seventh in the sixth house sometimes indicates that the native meets a significant other at work; in the ninth house, at school or another institution of learning, in a foreign land, or marriage to a foreigner, and so forth.
However, the house position of the ruler of the seventh house more often reveals important information about the nature of the partnership, the nature of the partner, and about relationship needs. So, a person with the ruler of the seventh house in the sixth may attract a partnership that is decidedly unequal, as this is the nature of the sixth house.
Check the aspects this ruler makes. These are personality dynamics that are most apparent in partnerships. People with planets in the seventh house are attracted to partnerships, in part, to fulfill the needs associated with that planet. This is why a heavily-posited seventh house often suggests a person who is especially attracted to one-on-one relationships or partnerships.
The Sun in the seventh house suggests a person who negotiates and compromises.

The ego comes into play in relationships, and there can be a tendency to focus a little too heavily on keeping scores and trying to balance things out. With the Moon in the seventh house, the native experiences a powerful neediness in relationships. The emotional connection to the partnership is strong. This person needs to be heard in order for the relationship to be satisfying.
Venus in the seventh house suggests a strong need for harmony and balance in a partnership. The native has a hard time dealing with insensitive or volatile relations and strives for peaceful co-existence with a partner.
With Mars in the seventh house, the native feels alive through partnership, and sometimes will depend on a partnership to feed his or her drive and stores of energy. A relationship that is too peaceful or placid may leave the native feeling dissatisfied. He or she is looking for an active partnership, and may depend too much on a partner for motivation, disowning his or her own drive. That may be too much responsibility for a partner to bear in the long run. Outer planets in the seventh house are less about disowning a part of ourselves, and more about qualities that we seek in our partnerships.
With Jupiter in the seventh house, we look for a partner who is generous and high-minded in spirit. The native needs to feel that he or she is growing through a partnership, and has a hard time finding a partnership that seems to be stagnating satisfying. Saturn in the seventh house has has a bad rap. In my experience, this position of Saturn does not seem to deny or delay marriage. I have seen enough people with Saturn in the seventh who have married young, and whose partners are not considerably older than them.
However, it does suggest a gravitation to a responsible and mature partner, as well as a heavier and more serious view of partnership than average. The native takes his or her partnerships seriously and will usually go to lengths to fulfill his or her responsibilities in partnership. The native has a hard time dealing with excessive neediness in a partner, and often feels a lot of pressure in and through a partnership.

The desire for a spiritual connection to a partner is strong, but there can be a real problem seeing the partnership clearly, and, if this is the case, it is easy to feel taken advantage of. Pluto in the seventh house suggests an attraction to partnerships that turn the life inside out. The tendency to be fearful of losing a partnership is common with this placement.
The native may attract partners who are possessive, and if this is the case, it is usually because he or she is projecting his or her own fears of being abandoned onto partnerships. Chiron in the seventh house suggests a certain defensiveness in partnerships.Understanding Uniqueness of Planets In Vedic Astrology By V P Goel [Russian Subtitles]
If the native skirts emotional issues out of fear of rocking the boat, he or she puts undue pressure on the partnership. The South Node in the seventh house suggests a tendency to form, and to fall back on, co-dependent relationships due to a fear of independence and of standing alone.
Understanding the Astrological Meaning of the Planets
The native fears asserting himself or herself and will need to face this fear of standing alone at some point in the life time.
The situation is reversed with North Node in the seventh house which suggests a tendency to rely on the self so much as to alienate important others in the life, to be excessively competitive to the point of a me-first attitude, to take things personally, and to be impatient, rash, and impulsive at the expense of personal happiness. The native needs to work on sensitizing himself or herself to the needs of others and to stop shrinking from the demands that a partner might puts on him or her.
Through partnership, and through cooperation with others, the native will attain inner balance, but there can be a struggle along this path. Sun-Moon Aspects in the Natal Chart People born with a Sun-Moon tension can spend much of their lives struggling to balance the principles of the Sun and the Moon within their personalities, and will bring this struggle to some degree into their relationships. The urge to form meaningful relationships is generally powerful, but relationships can be as much of a struggle to these natives as the inner conflict is to themselves.
This inner conflict occurs with the square, opposition, and quincunx. The desire to find meaningful relationships is stronger than it is when the natal Sun and Moon form a sextile or trine, and early relationships in particular can be challenging until the stressful aspects are recognized as an inner tension. His Sun and Moon form a sextile.
When faced with a relationship problem, her instinct was to work on it actively, but her husband did not see such a need. A stressful Sun-Moon aspect seems to imprint the native with the often unconscious expectation that relationships can very easily fail, and the natives will be especially aware of conflicts in partnership, taking them to heart.
The upside of this natal conflict is found in this sensitivity itself! Those with a Sun-Moon opposition, in particular, are generally willing to work out problems in a relationship due to their acute awareness and sensitivity to the conflicts that arise in their partnerships. However, if they face a partner who denies the problems exist in the first place, as in the example above, they can easily become frustrated. This is because learning and growing through relationships is a basic urge — so basic that it is a need.
These natives are learning about themselves through their relationships, and need partners who are willing to be a part of that process. The native can be quite defensive and even belligerent with others, and often over-sensitive, which can take its toll in personal relationships. Partners may complain that the native often seems to be spoiling for a fight, and relationships can be turbulent until the native learns to compromise.
Sun quincunx Moon in the natal chart suggests an individual who seems to live life constantly making adjustments and concessions. There can be a tendency to offer too much followed by feelings of being taken advantage of. Passive-aggressiveness can be a problem as well. The native seems to expect that he or she has to make compromises in life in order to get what he or she wants, but in the process, undervalues his or her needs.
Partners may complain that the native is indecisive, unsettled, and unfocused. The native needs to work on accepting both the Sun and the Moon in his or her personality in order to feel whole and to avoid sabotaging relationships and life goals with self-defeating attitudes. When the Sun and Moon are sextile or trine, the native is unmistakably accepting, although rather strong-willed as well. There can be a tendency for the native to expect to get what he or she wants, simply because the desire nature is at peace within him- or herself.
However, the ease with which this native deals with others can certainly be an asset. Sun conjunct Moon in the natal chart suggests a strong-willed individual who is also rather subjective.
