Emotional Attachments & the Twelve Houses of Astrology

Emotional Attachment is something we all experience in life.

In the first house of Aries we make an emotional attachment to certain belief systems, concepts, theories, and thinking patterns passed down from generation to generations.

This may be religious/spiritual, political, psychological, educational, social class, and we take-action based on what knowledge, wisdom, and insight is passed on to us through our family and local culture.

We make emotional attachments to the way we see ourselves as individual based on what we hear from others in the 7th house. We believe what we see, what we hear, we taste, what we smell, and what we touch in our physical reality as an individual.

Aries is the mental process, what we believe about ourselves from our geographical position on the earth, and how we feel we are experiencing events, what we are soaking in from our environment and external surroundings.

We come into this world without materialism and finances as individuals. Right from the beginning we learn we are physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, financially, and sexually dependent on another person.

In the 2nd house of Taurus we make emotional attachments to materialism and finances. This may be our possessions such as our physical house, bed, table, couch, television, collections, jewelry, perfumes, make-up, clothes, shoes, carpets, art work, literature, find food, and fine wine. This may be any physical object we find of personal wealth and what we find to hold some form of sentimental value.

When you look at those who may be in poverty or those who live in wealthy homes the individual will hoard materialism in different ways.

One will hoard materialism out of the scarcity principle, as we have seen in the past with Uranus in Taurus, after WWII, and the Depression.

 The Cancer Pluto Generation (Traditionalists) saved everything, recycled everything, and found themselves hoarding materialism. Afraid to throw anything out, they made emotional attachments to materialism believing they’d never have enough. This made it hard for some of them to give up any object. The Scarcity principle became key in teaching future generations to hoard materialism.

The Wealthy may have collections of material objects in their homes. This might be artifacts, art, literature, animals they’ve hunted, or displaying materialism they have acquired from their travels in life, what they find interesting, what they want to show off. A reward for their hard work, dedication, and devotion to their career. This is more geared to their personal enjoyment, versus hoarding for survival.

When one loses their materialism, land, and property, they may have a difficult time letting go of the physical objects.

In the 3rd house of Gemini, of siblings, neighbors, co-workers, strangers, and family, one makes and emotional attachment to those they love in their biological family, friendships, social circle, work circle, educational circler, or other social groups one might join.

It’s impossible to establish relationships in general without forming an emotional, mental, or spiritual bond.

In the 4th house of Cancer, the home and family. There is an emotional bond to those who live in the home environment. This may be immediate family members, the maternal side of the family, grandmothers, wife, husband, children, parents, or sometimes extended family who may share the physical home. When those in the immediate environment pass away, divorce, or separate from the rest of the family, one may have a difficult time letting go and breaking their emotional attachment.

In the 5th house of Leo, In the world of entertainment, children and pleasure, we form emotional attachments with what forms of entertainment we enjoy.

This also can be experienced outside of a sexual relationship, since the family environment shares resources of materialism and finances. When resources are taken away or given this will affect the whole entire group, versus just the individual.
