In this chart 29 degrees of Scorpio rises.
Mercury is the hour ruler. The chart is not radical, but we can still get an accurate answer from it nonetheless. The South Node is in a partile conjunction of the Ascendant, afflicting the querent.
As Scorpio rises, Mars is the ruler of
the Ascendant and significator
of the querent (person asking the question). Mars is peregrine in the cadent 3rd house.
The Moon, showing action is in Taurus, but void of course.
The Moon still performs somewhat in Taurus. The Moon is conjunct
the very malefic fixed star Algol.
The seller of the house is signified by Venus,
ruler of the 7th house.
Venus is dignified by sign and triplicity and conjunct the 7th house.
The querent's money is signified by the ruler
of the 2nd house, Jupiter,
who is dignified by face, a weak dignity, and in the 9th house, a cadent house.
Jupiter is also the natural ruler of money as well as being the ruler of the physical
condition of the house.
The house's price is signified by the ruler of the 10th,
Mercury, who is dignified by term. This shows that the price would favor
the seller, but not be outrageously high.
Venus, significator of the seller, applies to a square without reception
of Mars, significator of the querent. This indicates troubles and difficulties.
The weakness of the querent's
significator Mars is a most significant problem.
Being peregrine and in a cadent house, Mars has difficulty achieving his goal of
purchasing the house. The Moon at first appears to be helpful, being in Taurus,
her exaltation, but then we realize that she is not only void of course,
but conjunct the malefic star Algol.
Action in this chart is not with the querent.
The malefic South Node afflicting the Ascendant doesn't help matters. The fact that
29 degrees rises, with the other chart indications, seems to show that there is
little the querent can do about the situation. Scorpio being a fixed sign would
indicate that the current situation, ie not owning the house, is likely to continue.
Then we have the square between the querent and seller.
This indicates difficulties and arguments and lacks the positive
factor of reception. It could indicate the sale because there at
least is an applying aspect, but given the other factors in the chart,
we are getting a negative answer from it.
It does not appear that the price is
the problem, as it is not
excessively high, rather problems crop up between the querent and the
seller. As Jupiter, which rules the 2nd of money and the 4th of the
property itself, is dignified by face and cadent, it appears that the
property is not in terrible shape, but is only ok, and that financially
it would an ok, but not amazing move for the querent.
Given that the
2nd ruler of the querent's money, Jupiter is dignified by face, but
the house price 10th ruler Mercury is dignified by term, it may be that
the price is just a little too high for the querent.
It is possible that after some arguments and difficulties,
that the querent buys the property, but more likely these problems
crop up and the house sale does not go through.
The querent reported that not only did he not buy the property,
but that the chart had accurately forecast the exact sequence of events.
