(6) House of health and service... "I Serve..."
Updated: Aug 25, 2021
(ruled by Virgo)
The sixth house is the domain of health and service. It rules schedules, organization, routines, fitness, diet and exercise, natural and healthy living, helpfulness and being of service to others.
The sixth house uncovers what kind of work that a person does, but not his or her true career. The types of employment implied in the sixth house are those that are done out of necessity, regardless whether the individual enjoys their job or not. If unfortunate aspects happen to apply to planets that are placed in this house, the individual can generally be constrained by life to follow the path where they would need to work these occupations.
The sixth house can represent an individual's service towards others, but can additionally connote how that person is served as well.
The 6th house holds you back and reminds you that there are limits. It brings you back down-to-earth to deal with day-to-day realities.
The sixth house in astrology gives you a mind-body connection where you look both at your internal and external world. Whether it's brushing your teeth, working out, paying bills, or deciding whether something is good for you, the sixth house has an effect.
Finally, the sixth house in astrology covers pets. This might seem like an obscure topic to throw in the mix, but pets are important to many people's daily lives, affecting everything from how people feel about themselves to how they adjust their daily routine to care for them.
