Domains and Houses

The twelve divisions in the horoscope are called the Houses and each house describes a different aspect of life. Sometimes there are planets and points within these divisions and sometimes there is none.  If one knows their birth time and location then the divisions of life can be interpreted accurately against the backdrop of the Zodiacal signs.


Martin Bryant’s chart has 24 degrees of Pisces on the Ascendant

Houses and Zodiacal Signs are completely different however some Astrologers combine descriptions of Houses with the natural sequence of the Signs.

The signs do have an ordered sequence starting with Aries and ending with Pisces. The houses work anti clockwise and always start with the ascendant or 1st house degree. When one can calculate the Ascendant degree (1st house) one is then working with proper astrology.

The above chart for Martin Bryant shows 24 degrees Pisces on the ascendant with Chiron and then Saturn and Black Moon Lilith and the Moon in Aries – all in the 1st house.  The signs and houses usually cross and inter mesh in each other.

The ascendant or 1st house represents your body and somatic experiences. It can represent  your outer mask or persona in life. The ascendant sign can describe the main expression of personality as opposed to Sun Sign descriptions . The ascendant acts like a filter for the expression of all the other planets in the natal chart.

The Ascendant is your life force and health – your appearance – your smells and auras.


Marti Bryant killed 35 people in Tasmania 1996

One could say that Bryant’s somatic life is one of isolation and melancholia. Chiron in the watery sign of Pisces represents some kind of chronic ailment at the ascendant.  Some Pisces ascendant folk with Chiron conjunct the Ascendant have reported experiences about oral health issues.

Around the 8th of April 2009 the planet Uranus will cross Bryant’s ascendant degree. Uranus at the ascendant can be felt in the body like an electric – shock or a sudden and exciting experience in life. Uranus on the ascendant is like a surge for freedom and physical change for the person.

Uranus represents flight and radical stimuli from ones environment.  The Solar Fire interpretation of Uranus transiting the Ascendant is;

“Life and relationships can take on a certain sparkle during this transit, which can be both exciting and a little frightening. With any Uranus transit there is an urge for freedom. For you there is now an urge to break out and express yourself in new ways, particularly in your primary relationship. The more you have held yourself back, or others have held you in the past the more urgently you now feel the need for change.” (edit)  written by Stephanie Johnson. SF

This particular Solar Fire interpretation doesn’t take into account that Pisces is the rising degree or other planets are close to Bryant’s Ascendant.  (There are other very good detailed reports in Solar Fire astrology program).

So it seems that an exciting new physical experience is on the way for Martin Bryant. The natal planets in his first house describe painful and restrictive elements to his personality. He can potentially use Lilith to express the deeply repressed and non integrated parts of his personality.  In my view Bryant’s anger is primarily about his mother. With his Aries Moon opposite Mars.

One would hope that Bryant has been doing some good therapy work whilst in prison. Perhaps some dental therapy? Seeing as though Bryant isn’t up for parole any time soon – around the month of April 2009 there is an exciting albeit brief surge of freedom in his life.

The Progressed charts show his Sun directing to Venus. Venus is emphasised at the 4th cusp which relates to Family and endings in life. Venus is the ruler of Bryant’s eighth house of death and operations. Venus is also the natural ruler for Kidneys.

My prediction is there is change in his family at this time and he is stuck in prison. Bryant may also require treatment for ailments that have become life threatening. Bryant also simply experiences a strange new quality to his life in prison.

    Hopefully it doesn’t mean he’s going to escape!! Very interesting reading Kenoath.

    I dont think he could escape KazzaB. One could imagine the drudgery of boring prison life – day in day out. Even for Bryant perhaps there can be some exciting times?

    If he survives that is. Perhaps some exciting times indeed K.

    Maybe we will never know unless it is something dasterly and it appears in the news. I dont think we would hear if it was a new gaol relationship or a new set of dentures.

    It is interesting though Roses I agree. Uranus – Asc has been known to be feel like high anxiety and a harried experiences. Uranus wants to individuate and separate to set one apart from the crowd. If he cant break free from the confines of his reality then he is going to express that in another way.

    I like your blog Kingley. I am an Astrology student and stumbled on your site looking for some birth data on Ben Cousins as I’m facinated in the way the collective has embraced him as a symbol of so much…

    When Uranus crossed my Ascendant about 20 years ago I fell in love and began my first adult relationship!

    Natally my Uranus is in a tight trine with a sun mars conjunction so I’ve learned that Uranus transits have a lot to with men in my life and the masculine in general… I notice Byant’s Uranus is conjunct pluto and trines his sun… combined with progressed sun venus contact I’d say some kind of relationship relationship with a male that enhances his life. The fact there is the 8th house connection and the Pluto element natally could suggest some kind of secrecy so we’ll probably never know!

    Hello Lou, good to see you comment. Yes well I did figure something like that for Martin Bryant. I think its interesting to interpret the astrology for someone like himself – being incarcerated and a murderer etc. Just goes to show that we all have “a life” – relatively speaking. Perhaps looking at others charts is the voyer in me and my curiosity of people.

    Ben is good, let me know what you think of his chart rectification.

    A book about the troubled life of Martyn Bryant has been released this week. For someone living in solitary isolation I wonder how he received the book? A Uranus moment indeed.

    Watch the video of a news program about Martin Bryant’s childhood and leading up to the Port Aurther massacre

    My predictions about Bryant were a “off track” however it is interesting to see that Uranus crossing the ascendant can bring some surprising elements. The exposure of Bryants life and footage of him in the news clip above are very insightful.

    In retrospect Lou, whenever the prog Sun activates a planet there can be an “exposure” of some kind. It just happens that the Sun has revealed his 8th house ruler – Venus. His secrets and early family development. His past has been revealed to one and all once again. That would be quite a shock for someone in solitary confinement to suddenly be represented to the world in a book.

    Not to mention the ABC 7 30 Report’s film footage of him this week. Uranus has two more hits on his ascendant over the year or so. Bryant has already had three suicide attempts.
