In 3 days, on April 19th, the Sun moves into Taurus, kicking off Taurus Season! This means we're exiting Aries Season, a time for energy, taking initiative, and new beginnings. This proved to be an excellent period for that, but now we enter Taurus Season, and energy slows down so we can take a beat and catch our breath.
If you're a Taurus (Sun, Moon, or Rising), or you have a strong natal Venus (the natural ruler of Taurus) or natal Ceres (argued to be the new ruler of Taurus), you know that this sign wants to slow things down. We've been rushing and gushing, and now we want to press pause so we can assess and better decide on next moves. Fellow earth signs Virgo and Capricorn can do well during Taurus Season, along with water sign Cancer and Pisces. Fellow fixed signs Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius may have more work to do.
This Taurus Season kicks off with Mercury moving into Taurus on the same day (the 19th), and Venus having moved into Taurus on the 14th, so we have strong Taurus energy right out of the gates. The Taurus New Moon on May 11th helps add fuel for stability and security.

About Taurus Energy:
Taurus is the second sign in the Zodiac, and follows energetic Aries. Taurus now sees a time to slow things down, take a moment, and press pause. Taurus doesn't feel rushed into anything, wanting to be confident in its decisions first. Confidence can be important for Taurus, helping to make it more decisive.
Stability and security is important to Taurus, and this can be a time to focus on improving that. Areas that have been chaotic can benefit from the calming energy of Taurus, and doing some grounding work can be highly beneficial.
Taurus wants us to take time to be present, in the moment, and reconnect with nature and our bodies. This is a sensual sign focused on the physical world, and we can strive to be more connected.
When you're a Taurus native (or have a strong Venus, Ceres, or stacked 2nd house, which corresponds to Taurus), you're likely someone who naturally takes your time, strives to be confident in your decisions, and is one with your body.

Taurus Season gives you a chance to slow down coming out of your season, Aries. Energy has likely been high, and you can use a little break to rest, replenish yourself, and gather information you need. Anything you do pursue now, you can stick with for a while, so you want to make a good choice. You can focus on bringing more stability and security to your life as well, and may want to take time to ground yourself so you approach everything from a solid position.
Taurus Season is your time, Taurus! When it's your season, it's the time of year for you to focus on what you want to get started. Your energy can be higher, you can be more excited by the opportunities you have, and you can charge forward enthusiastically. This can be a time of new beginnings, projects, and ventures, so think about what you want to embark on now that can be a focus for the next year or so of your life. You can get things started quickly, and feel good about your chances.
Taurus Season can make you get some rest, Gemini, and that may be especially important this go around since the next season is yours (and comes with some wonky astrology!). Take the time you have now to rest, recharge, replenish your energy, and eliminate anything weighing you down or finish anything that has taken up a lot of your time. Releasing can be helpful for dealing with the energy to come. Turn inward, connect to your intuition and subconscious, and reconcile with past issues.
Taurus Season can help push you to do things differently, Cancer. You can focus on what you want to try that's new and unusual or unconventional, and can be more willing to push outside of your comfort zone. You can be more independent and innovative, and willing to expand your social circle or make the most of existing connections. You can think more about your future and what you hope it will be like, and changes you make now may be for the purpose of getting you closer to that dream future.
Taurus Season can help with your goals, Leo. You can be more ambitious, disciplined, and focused, and this can help you make progress, achieve something, or hit a high point in some way. You can get recognition for what you've done right, and make important connections with important people. There may be extra responsibilities now as well, but you can handle them. You can work on long-term plans with a more practical eye, and understand what needs to be done to stay or get on the right direction.
Taurus Season may provoke you to push for some more space in your life, Virgo. This may be in small ways, and you can work within the restrictions you have to find the space you need. You may focus on expanding your mind, learning new things, having new experiences, and you can learn from everything you do. You can be more optimistic than usual, and want to focus on the bright side of situations. This can open you up more, and you can be bolder and more adventurous.
Taurus Season can get you focused on solutions to problems, Libra. You can throw yourself into any situation or project that requires you to be fully invested, and the more you dig, the more you uncover. You can find information that helps you see the way out of challenges, and you can do the serious work that needs to be done. This can also be a time to transform in some way, some part of yourself or of your life, and you can work on it from the core so it lasts for a long time.
Taurus Season lights up your relationships, Scorpio. You may want to spend more time with the people in your life, and you can give them more attention. You may feel more comfortable doing things with a partner, or want to do more to help others. This may feel like a time when it's more about other people than about yourself. At the same time, you may strive to have better balance, so you can try to maintain the middle. You may want to avoid dramatic people, and stick to some peace and harmony.
Taurus Season lights up your work, Sagittarius. You can be much more productive, getting as much done as you can to the best of your abilities, and can be efficient and orderly. You can improve your schedule and routine, and squeeze every last drop out of every second you have. This can be a great time to make progress with work and get attention for work you've done, but you should also try to make time to rest and take care of yourself so you don't burn out. Self care is good!
Taurus Season lights up love for you, Capricorn. You can spend more time with the people you love or doing the things you love, and you may have less patience for anything you don't love. This can make your solid work ethic a little less solid than usual, so try to get done what needs to be done and make extra time for play when you can. Creativity can be high, and this can help you focus on the little things and get work done if you feel you're being creative with it.
Taurus Season lights up your home and family life, Aquarius. You may want to spend more time with family or those you think of as family, and you can be more supportive, but also want more support in return. It's good to strengthen your support system, and this can help you feel more emotionally stable and secure. You can make improvements at home, and want to feel comfortable. This is generally a time when you may prefer to stick to your comfort zone instead of going out of it as much as usual.
Taurus Season stirs up mental energy and communication for you, Pisces. You can come up with plenty of new ideas that excite you, and you can focus on short-term plans to make things happen quickly. You can work on gathering information you need, getting advice, and talking things over, and talking can be something that helps you feel more secure. You can share what you're thinking more easily and openly, and feel more connected to others and more like yourself.

How Jupiter in Pisces 2021-2022 Impacts You
Jupiter is the expansive planet, so it expands on whatever sign it's in. With Pisces, one of the things it expands on is our compassion. We can be suuuper compassionate, wanting to help others as much as we can, and willing to make sacrifices in order to help others. This can be great, but it does mean we have to work on better boundaries, because there's always someone there to take advantage of you when you've got a big heart. So, if boundaries are an issue for you, this would be a good time to take stock and work on improving them.
Pisces is a highly intuitive sign, so this transit is likely to increase intuition, spirituality, and interest in the metaphysical even more. It's not just about the physical world anymore, or the brain and what we're thinking, or even just emotion and what we're feeling. It's beyond all of that. Having a solid intuitive connection can be helpful in so many ways in life, and this transit is excellent for forging that strong connection and making positive use of it.
Pisces is also the sign ruling the arts and music, and is highly imaginative, so creative energy can also surge. If you're the creative type, there can be inspiration all around, and recognition for creativity may be plentiful. We can appreciate the beauty in creative expression, and use creativity to quietly say what we may not actually be saying.
Pisces is the very last Zodiac sign, so it's also connected to endings, and it may feel like something big is coming to an end in some way. We can take time to be more introspective, to turn inward and reflect, and to look at the past and try to understand all that has come to pass. We can tap into our subconscious minds and figure out subconscious motivations, and tackle subconscious issues. This can be a great time for deep letting go, for moving on, and for releasing unhealthy baggage.
Pisces also connects to the 12th house, which rules the hidden, so we may become more aware of things that have been under the radar and out of our view. Some of this may be good, and we get information and data points to use to make better decisions. But some of this may be things coming out that would be better gotten rid of, and maybe it's time to do just that.
Also want to note that Jupiter used to be the ruler of Pisces (before Neptune came along), so Jupiter does feel at ease here, and that makes all of this energy a bit easier.
On a personal level, you can experience any or all of this in the areas of life ruled by the house(s) Jupiter in Pisces tours in your natal chart.
How Jupiter in Pisces Differs From Jupiter in Aquarius
Jupiter in Aquarius is more focused on the external, bringing new people into your life, new experiences, and opening us up to the unconventional. We want to be more independent and individuals. With Jupiter in Pisces, we're far more concerned about others, and want to do as much as we can to be of help.
Aquarius is also an air sign, focused on the mind, while Pisces is a fluid water and mutable sign. Not only is emotion more important, but intuition. Aquarius likes to think things through thoroughly (being one of the signs of the expert), while Pisces can go purely by intuition. Sometimes this does get Pisces in trouble, but it's trying to get us to have strong connections to our own inner guides.
Special Periods During Jupiter in Pisces
You can tell right off of the bat that Jupiter in Pisces comes with ruler Neptune in Pisces, and they officially conjunct (align) once on April 12th 2022 (at 23 degrees). This amplifies the impact of Pisces big time, especially since both rulers (the traditional ruler in Jupiter and modern ruler in Neptune) being in Pisces. It's great for Pisces! And all those Pisces things. So be intuitive, creative, imaginative, compassionate, release, and understand.
Jupiter is also sextile (positive aspect, 2 signs away) both Uranus in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn, so it's playing nice with the outer planets. It hits Uranus first (February 17th 2022 @ 11 degrees), and this can help us with making changes, doing things differently, embracing the unconventional, being individuals, and working for the collective. With Pluto, this comes May 3rd 2022 (28 degrees), with Pluto turning retrograde April 29th 2022 sextile, so this one is in effect for several weeks. It helps with transforming, growing personal power, being productive, and creating positive changes on a large scale.
Mars is in Pisces with Jupiter starting April 14th 2022; Mars is in Pisces until May 24th 2022, but Jupiter exits Pisces May 10th, so they're only together in Pisces for about a month and they don't conjunct at any point. Still, Mars is the planet of energy and drive, so this can amplify the Pisces energy even more, and we can strive to do more to help others, to finish or get rid of something, or to make use of creativity.
A new moon occurs on March 2nd 2022 in Pisces that is conjunct Jupiter in Pisces, so this can be an excellent time for new beginnings related to Pisces. We may start new creative and artistic projects, new ventures that help others, or focus on new spiritual pursuits.
When Jupiter re-enters Pisces on October 28th 2022 for its last few months in this sign, Mars will turn retrograde (appear to move backward) 2 days later on October 30th in Gemini square (hard aspect, 3 signs away) Jupiter in Pisces. This doesn't go exact, but it does amplify the aggressive energy of Mars retrograde at the start. There's also a solar eclipse in Scorpio October 25th, a few days before Jupiter re-enters Pisces, and a lunar eclipse November 8th in Taurus triggered by Uranus. So, most of the tour for Jupiter in Pisces is quite nice, but the end might be a big mess! Super aggressive energy with Mars retrograde, highly emotional with the eclipses, and some unexpected developments and irrational behavior with Uranus. We will definitely need to be cautious and careful at that point in 2022!
Jupiter in Pisces Conjunct the Outer Planets in Your Natal Chart
No one alive now (unless you're a vampire, anyway) has Pluto in Pisces; Neptune is currently in Pisces, so those babies born now and in the last few years since Neptune has been in Pisces have Jupiter connecting with their Neptune. Since they're babies and really young children, this may not seem super obvious externally, but they're likely going to be more sensitive in all ways (and probably sweeter), benefit from creative projects (break out the paint brushes!), and they'll need their parents to be more mindful of protecting their boundaries (since kids can't really protect their own).
Most of the group of teenagers now have Uranus in Pisces (born between 2003 and 2011), so if you've got a pre-teen or teenager (or you are one - do your parents know you're reading this???), this means Jupiter will align with their Uranus. Uranus is the planet of rebellion, so watch for more of that! haha They're going to want more freedom to be themselves and experiment, so give them some space to dye their hair green (or something). At the same time, make sure they know they have their place at home/with the family so they can feel safe enough as they venture outside of their comfort zones.
Final Thought -
Overall, this is a very pleasant transit for most of it, and we just need to be more thoughtful and deliberate coming out of it to end 2022. In the meantime, make the most of the sweet energy - be creative and intuitive and understanding!

Jupiter is the lucky planet. It's expansive, good-natured, humorous, and wants to look at the bright side. Jupiter brings luck, in part because of its expansive nature (which unlocks opportunities), and in part because of its optimism (so it's open to possibilities).
In your natal chart, your Jupiter sign (and house placement) can show how and where this luck comes for you. They're the areas where you seem to always have opportunities, there is a breadth of potential, and you can view situations in a brighter light, helping you to stay with it until you find what works for you.
You don't usually have to work so hard with Jupiter (that's the job of Saturn and Pluto). Jupiter doesn't want to be hard on us, so even when you have a more challenged natal Jupiter (like it's anaretic or intercepted), you can still work with it and not have quite as many hoops to jump through to make positive use of your Jupiter.
We're going to focus on your Jupiter sign meaning so you can get an idea of how this expansive, lucky energy plays out for you (and if you don't know your Jupiter sign, Cafe Astrology has a table HERE).
Jupiter Sign Meanings:
Aries Jupiter Sign Meaning:
Jupiter in Aries benefits from doing things your own way. Take initiative and go for what you want! Your energy and drive can be of positive use to you, and you can make things happen. Be enthusiastic and willing to embark on new journeys. A new beginning can bring fresh energy to your life. This can open up so much more opportunities for you. Be the pioneer you can be!
Taurus Jupiter Sign Meaning:
Jupiter in Taurus benefits from taking the slow, steady approach. Rushing isn't the greatest for you, and instead, you can take your time, gather information and do research, and make sure you're confident first before you take action. A little caution can be a good thing for you. Once you start, you can have staying power, and this opens up so much for you. Your ability to see things through can be a superpower!
Gemini Jupiter Sign Meaning:
Jupiter in Gemini benefits from your mind. You likely come up with so many ideas and have some many plans, so the trick is getting focused and being more disciplined with them. Your mind can be a huge asset once you learn to control some of the energy. One of those ideas of yours may be your lucky ticket, and you can come up with lots of ideas and plans to create more opportunities for yourself.
Cancer Jupiter Sign Meaning:
Jupiter in Cancer benefits from your emotions. You may have some killer emotional instincts, and being guided by your emotions can help steer you in the right direction. As long as you're maintaining some objectivity, this can be a huge boost for you. You can also embrace opportunity and feel luckiest when you feel emotionally supported and secure, so build up your support system and let opportunities soar.
Leo Jupiter Sign Meaning:
Jupiter in Leo benefits from creativity. You can pick up lots of different hobbies, and enjoy pursuing creative projects. Using your creativity can open up more opportunities for you. You can also benefit from being in the spotlight and getting attention, and you can be fairly comfortable with that (provided you don't have planets in the 12th house!). The more success you have, the more attention you may get.
Virgo Jupiter Sign Meaning:
Jupiter in Virgo benefits from getting organized. Set up a schedule, make lists, adhere to structure and order, and this can bring more opportunities to you. Being detailed can help you create opportunities for yourself, along with a solid work ethic. For you, it's likely a combination of luck and hard work that take you far, and the better you work, the better your luck.
Libra Jupiter Sign Meaning:
Jupiter in Libra benefits from other people, so you're someone who may find more opportunities, success, and luck when you're working with a partner or doing work that helps other people in some way. Your charm, diplomacy, and tact can help get your further, and you may have a natural ability to negotiate, mediate, and compromise that proves super beneficial.
Scorpio Jupiter Sign Meaning:
Jupiter in Scorpio benefits from using passionate energy. You can focus on what you're most passionate about, and throw yourself fully into it. The more passionate you are about it, the better your opportunities and luck. As long as you don't get obsessed in an unhealthy way, you can make things happen with sheer strength of will and determination. A transformation may precede your biggest success.
Sagittarius Jupiter Sign Meaning:
Jupiter in Sagittarius puts Jupiter in its home sign, so Jupiter is super comfortable here and helps you benefit from being more Jupiter - open to expansion, always optimistic, growing through experiences, and always learning. Expand your knowledge, and share your wisdom. Having a solid connection to your beliefs may also prove beneficial for you.
Capricorn Jupiter Sign Meaning:
Jupiter in Capricorn benefits from discipline and plans. You can craft long-term plans for your goals that are realistic and attainable, and being disciplined as you work with them helps get your further. You may feel like you're at your best when you're striving for something, and you may have lots of goals you want to achieve, and feel confident that you can.
Aquarius Jupiter Sign Meaning:
Jupiter in Aquarius benefits from being unconventional. Doing things the way they've always been done? Throw that out the window! You're someone who needs to be open to what's new, different, eccentric, and out of your comfort zone. You may find that the more you take chances outside of your comfort zone, the more opportunities you find and the more luck you have.
Pisces Jupiter Sign Meaning:
Jupiter in Pisces benefits from a strong intuition. Pisces is the sign of intuition, so you can focus on strengthening your connection to your intuitive self, and this can guide you to the right choices and actions. It seems like luck, but it's just a great inner guide! You may find opportunities through spiritual pursuits, by being in the background (you may avoid the spotlight unless you've got lots of fire or 1st house energy), by helping others, or through artistic ventures.

Black Moon Lilith is the apogee of the Moon, and in astrology, is a position that can show a hidden inner power within you to stand up and speak out. Lilith gets a lot of negative attention (no surprise given the story of Lilith!), and it certainly can be challenging, but not always negative if you can use Black Moon Lilith to your advantage. I've talked a lot about Lilith in different contexts, but for this article, I wanted to explore what it means when you have a strong Black Moon Lilith in your natal chart. What does it mean for you?
How do you know if you have a strong Black Moon Lilith in the natal chart?
You may qualify if your Black Moon Lilith is:
- conjunct a personal planet (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars)
- conjunct one of the angles (1st, 4th, 7th, 10th house cusps)
- conjunct the ruler of the Ascendant
- conjunct one of the Lunar Nodes (the point's in the Moon's orbit where the Moon crosses the ecliptic; are spiritual/karmic in nature)
- in the 1st house
- anaretic (at 29 degrees)
- at the Aries Point (0 degrees of a cardinal sign)
Any of these can add some juice to your natal Black Moon Lilith and make the energy stronger for you.
What does it mean to have a strong Black Moon Lilith in the natal chart?
First, let's explore the story of Lilith. Lilith was Adam's first wife in the Garden of Eden, refused to be sexually submissive (she believed they were equals since they were both made from the Earth), and was kicked the eff out like a starter wife and replaced by the I'll-do-anything-you-want second wife Eve (LOL! so that would be the modern version?). Some of the stories say Lilith went stark-raving mad, stole babies, became a succubus, blah-blah-blah - you see what I mean with the negative attention? No one thought very highly of a woman who could think for herself in those days, so to save the fragile male ego, of course they had to paint her as a wackadoodle. I never fail to get mad at this story!
Anyways - having a strong Black Moon Lilith in your natal chart means Lilith is super important, and likely quite prevalent, in your personality and/or life. You may be someone who has experienced standing up and speaking out in some way but being opposed for doing this, even punished (like Lilith). But like Lilith, you have an inner strength and belief in the right thing that keeps you from budging.
Thanks to the story of Lilith, this position also ties into sexual desires, but I find those with a strong Black Moon Lilith aren't the submissive types (as Lilith wasn't). This doesn't necessarily mean being a dominatrix (unless maybe you have a strong asteroid Sado?), but is instead, being more sexually independent. You don't want to be forced into doing anything you're not into, and you may run from anyone who tries. This can also be tied to more than just sex, and you may have a hard time being forced into anything.
Lilith is also one of the witches, so having a strong Black Moon Lilith usually gives you some mystical, magical, witchy power. How exactly this manifests usually depends on the sign your Lilith is in.
And with the whole baby-stealing thing, I also find those with a strong or challenged Lilith tend to have difficult relationships with their mothers (often outright abusive relationships, though not necessarily physical; I have found many narcissistic mothers who focus on mental/emotional abuse for those with a strong or challenged Lilith).
Black Moon Lilith is a little like Pluto in that you usually have to undergo a transformation in order to fully access your Lilith energy in a positive way. Some of it may come naturally to you when Lilith is strong in your natal chart, but you may also encounter more of the problems and opposition. Like Pluto, Lilith is a position that is full of power - and with any personal power, you have to grow within yourself to accept it, be comfortable with it, and wield it wisely. The growth and transformation may be tied to your Lilith sign, house, and close aspects (but also focusing on your Pluto transformation as well as your Saturn lessons can be super helpful too - use them together!).

Black Moon Lilith in Taurus: October 2020 - July 2021
As you get started with astrology, you're usually first introduced to your horoscope, and you likely hear of the Zodiac seasons (Aries Season, Aquarius Season, etc.). This is a reference to the Zodiac sign the transit (moving) Sun is in. The Sun gets the most attention since it's considered one of the most important parts of who you are (ruling your true self). In transit, the Sun shines a light, and our attention is brought to the Zodiac sign it's touring.

The confusing basics: What the heck is a Zodiac, anyway?
In astrology, we actually have 3 different Zodiacs: Tropical, Sidereal, and Constellational. Only the Constellational Zodiac (which is relatively new) focuses on the *actual* location of the current constellations. The Tropical and Sidereal Zodiac's don't.
The Tropical Zodiac is an Earth-based system that focuses on the seasons, with Aries corresponding to the Spring Equinox, Cancer corresponding to the Summer Solstice, Libra corresponding to the Autumnal Equinox, and Capricorn corresponding to the Winter Solstice. It's a fixed system that doesn't change, which is why those idiotic reporters who shout every few years that it's not correct are actually the ones who aren't correct. ;)
The Sidereal Zodiac takes into consideration the precession of the equinoxes (which can get really wordy and technical but is essentially just the change in the orientation of our rotational axis), so it's not fixed, however it really only uses this to calculate the start of the Zodiac and then splits the Zodiac into 12 equal parts (the 12 Zodiac signs), same as the Tropical system. The Zodiac signs in the Constellational Zodiac are NOT equal (since they actually vary in size - but this system isn't Earth-based).
Sidereal and Tropical have been around for a loooong time and are the ones mostly used today; Constellational is like a baby in comparison (just a couple decades old). The lack of symmetry with the Constellational Zodiac tends to make astrologers a little standoffish. Some signs are huge and others are tiny. The perfect symmetry of astrology was part of its beauty for its history. It can also feel like it's trying to appease the scientific community (which, let's face it, isn't going to happen anytime soon, at least not until quantum physics gives us some answers - maybe!).
The Sidereal Zodiac is mostly used in the East, while the Tropical Zodiac is mostly used in the West. The Sun sign you're familiar with is likely your Tropical Zodiac Sun sign.
Now to the movement of the Sun:
Using the Tropical Zodiac, the transit Sun is at about the same position on the same date every year, which makes it very easy to use. It's old reliable! It might be off by a day year-to-year, but that's about it.
The transit Sun moves almost 1 degree per day. The Zodiac is comprised of 12 Zodiac signs, and each sign is made up of 30 degrees so we can pinpoint locations (and each degree is made up of 60 minutes). This gives us 360 degrees for the entire Zodiac. We have 365 days each year (366 in Leap Year), so it's almost the same! It ends up evening out (since the Sun moves faster in the winter, slower in the summer, but averages out to just under 1 degree).
And now: Which month is which Zodiac signs?
Now that you've got the technical details, let's review which month is which Zodiac signs! -

Suggested Reading: Intro to Zodiac Signs
In astrology, there are 10 planets and 12 houses in a natal chart. Since there are 10 planets and 12 houses, this means every person has at least two houses with no planets in them. These are called empty houses.
Houses can e grouped together based on what they rule, and the 2nd, 6th, and 10th houses are the career or professional houses. So what does it mean when all 3 of these houses are empty?
What is an empty house?
A natal chart is a snapshot of the locations of various planets, houses, and bodies in the Zodiac at the moment you were born from the location you were born at. Any house without one of the natal planets in it is considered an empty house.
The 2nd, 6th, and 10th Houses - Your Career
The 2nd house is the house of money. It shows your approach toward dealing with money, and how you best make money.
The 6th house is the house of work. It shows the kind of jobs you may have, the work environment you thrive in, and your approach to work.
The 10th house is the house of career and goals. It shows your ambitions, what you strive to achieve, and your approach to your profession. Your career is often directly tied to your 10th house, and the perfect profession for you blends all 3 houses.
Empty 2nd, 6th, and 10th Houses
So, what if all 3 of these houses for you are empty houses? A lot of people freak out when they first see they have an empty house, and assume that it means they won't have whatever that house rules (so an empty 2nd house would be no money, an empty 6th house would be no job, and an empty 10th house would be no career).
But this isn't actually how empty houses work. Instead, astrology views an empty house as an area where you don't need to give as much attention because you've already learned it (this may be innately, in your early life, or in your past lives). Houses with planets in them are areas we need to give more attention because we still have more to learn.
If your 2nd, 6th, and 10th houses are all empty houses, this means that your professional life and ventures aren't as challenging as for the rest of us. You're free to find the work you love and turn into a profitable career without having as many hoops to jump through.
In your case, you'll focus more on the sign on the house cusp (the very beginning of the house). This sign is the dominant energy for how you make money (2nd), the jobs you have (6th), and the career you want (10th). You can also look at the ruler of that house (the natural planet ruler for the sign on the cusp). The sign and house location and aspects of the house ruler can also be more important.
When it might be a challenge:
The Lunar Nodes (points in the Moon's orbit where the Moon crosses the ecliptic; are spiritual/karmic in nature) or Chiron (ruler of wounds and healing) in any of these houses may complicate things and make it so it's not as easy as if they're truly empty. The Lunar Nodes and Chiron aren't considered planets, so they're not factored in for the "empty house" designation (there are tens of thousands of asteroids, so technically speaking, no one has a truly empty house, but these bodies aren't factored in).
One of the Lunar Nodes in one of these houses may cause some karmic issues or baggage that needs to be dealt with and uncertainty with your direction, and Chiron in one of these houses may cause some wounding. But, they can also potential opportunities for where you may focus professionally (often in roles where you're helping others, especially with Chiron; and if you have any asteroids in these houses, those can also play into showing what you opt for professionally).
If the 2nd, 6th, or 10th house cusps are anaretic (at 29 degrees), this may show challenges as well (the anaretic degree supercharges energy or depletes it, so you may focus too much or not enough and need some balance). There may also be challenges if the 2nd, 6th, or 10th house ruler is anaretic, intercepted (contained in another house), a singleton (only planet in an element, quality, or house type), conjunct Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, or Pluto (if not any of them), or part of a challenging aspect configuration (like the apex planet of a t-square).
So, these can show that this trio of empty houses may not be free of challenges, but they might still be a little easier.
