Overview Of the Sixth House:

The Sixth House in Astrology is the first of three challenging Houses. Along with the Eighth House and the Twelfth House, this House contains within it some of life’s challenges, including ill health, stress and hard work.

However, the Sixth House is also the house where we can find our healing, and how we can be of service to the world. It governs the type of lifestyles we tend to have, ranging from our diets to what we enjoy doing to keep fit and healthy – or not. This is the House where we need to get organized and structured, where we need to watch our stress levels and take care to balance work and play.

Sixth House in Aries:

This is a great House for Aries to be in. The reason why is because it’s said that Mars, the ruler of Aries in Astrology, “joys” in the Sixth House, meaning he’s extra happy when he’s connected to this area.

Aries on the Sixth House means that you’ll work hard and have plenty of energy leftover to stay fit and strong. In fact, you may take a special interest in and have a passion for all things health-related. You like to be a leader at work and aren’t really a team player, so it’s best if you go solo. Otherwise, you could have a tendency to flare up and lose your temper from time to time!

Sixth House in Taurus:

Let’s face it – you like to put your feet up and have a cozy and comfortable work environment! You do have the capacity to work very hard, when there’s a definite reward involved, or if your creativity is sparked. Otherwise, you may get bored and might even get stuck. Hence, being sure that you are inspired is key to your professional happiness.

You can be a touch indulgent when it comes to the health side of things, though you tend to be lucky, even when you have bad habits. That said, you still need to be careful of a potential sweet tooth or having too much of the good stuff. Moderation really is key.

Sixth House in Gemini:

You're one of those people who can juggle sixteen different roles, tasks and jobs at any one time, and be quite happy doing so. Your endless curiosity at work and eagerness to learn something new is a real gift and can land you in many interesting positions. You like to use your head at work, and can be a clever communicator and mental savant. Nevertheless, do be aware that you can job-hop or come across as unreliable at times.

Health-wise, you could be prone to anxiety and need to take extra care of your lungs and nervous system. Breathwork could be appealing for you, and bring you to a place of stress-free calm. Make sure that you take a mental break from time to time so that you don’t wear yourself out.

Sixth House in Cancer:

Work, for you, needs to be something you can invest your heart and soul in. You can’t seem to keep your feelings out of the workplace, and nor should you. This makes you a wonderful empath and caring colleague on the job, who is always willing to lend an ear and a shoulder to cry on. If you find yourself doing something not aligned with your heart, you can become quite stressed out, emotional, overwhelmed and reactive.

When it comes to your lifestyle and health, things are often changing. Your emotional health is of utmost importance, as is having a good routine that settles you. Your digestion may be tricky when you’re stressed, so keep an eye on the mind-gut connection.

Sixth House in Leo:

Astrology suggests you prefer to be the manager at whatever you’re doing. It doesn’t work for you to be underneath someone else or to be a cog in the wheel. You’re suited to doing things that allow you to express yourself freely, that make you feel authentic, seen and validated for who you intrinsically are.

You can be quite healthy, and have a keen interest in wellness, perhaps so much so that it spills into your work in some way. You need structure and to be organized to feel on track, and your health and work need to make you feel like you’re in control of things.

Sixth House in Virgo:

This is the most natural House for the sign of Virgo. Virgo and the Sixth House go together like coffee and cream, and you’ll likely be someone who works harder than most. You’re naturally structured and efficiently organized on the job – you love your to-do lists and your diary is a pleasure to behold.

Astrology suggests you may have a particular interest in service or the health industry in some way, as your own health is often a source of wisdom and information to draw upon. You could have a sensitive digestive system and a tendency to get anxious, especially when you’re disorganized or have too much on your plate. You prefer to live a clean, simple and healthy life where you can, and routine is essential to your well-being.

Sixth House in Libra:

You’re everybody’s favorite person at work! Charming, diplomatic and gracious, you have a flair for people management and a keen sense of justice. You could do well in a creative arena or a field in which you deal with people, day in and day out. Balance at the workplace is important to you, and you’ll never push it too hard. You also love beauty and harmony and will always be the one to compromise with your colleagues, bosses and clients.

This love of balance is equally essential when it comes to health and wellness. You like to indulge, but not too much, or else you can easily become ill and feel uncomfortable.

Sixth House in Scorpio:

At work, you are all or nothing. You don’t play small, and you’ll be extremely loyal when you feel valued and appreciated. You love work that applies your natural detective skills, and you can be strategic, calculating and extremely ambitious. This almost always leads to success as you are just so driven!

You apply the same attitude when it comes to health and wellness. You may go to extremes, either being super healthy, or extremely unhealthy. When you’re focused, you can be inspirational in your self-control. You do need to be aware of potential problems with control and letting go, which can have a knock-on effect on your health.

Sixth House in Sagittarius:

If you could travel for work every day, you probably would. Barring that, you just love gaining knowledge at the workplace and can be a natural teacher. Most of all, work for you needs to be fun and games – when it’s too serious or structured, you’ll get bored and leave. This can earn you the title of being irresponsible, but only when you haven’t found your ‘thing’.  You could have a bunch of jobs until you find the one you resonate with.

Astrology suggests you can be very lucky when it comes to your health, somehow always managing to avoid a disaster. Just be careful, however, because your risk-taking or indulgence can eventually catch up with you! That said, your positive attitude is often enough to stave off anything serious.

Sixth House in Capricorn:

You might be a late bloomer when it comes to finding your perfect professional fit. You may start out a bit insecure and fearful of routine and work, only to mature and grow into your authority at a later stage. Embracing routine is an important lesson and lending yourself to being of service. You can take your work very seriously, and organization is important to you.

Your body is a barometer of stress, so when you're working too hard – which you often do – things will go out of whack. Your structure, meaning your skin, teeth and bones, will be particular areas for you to look after and focus on.

Sixth House in Aquarius:

Freedom is number one on your priority list when it comes to your chosen work. If you don’t have the independence to do your own thing, you’ll rebel and push back. You like to choose an unusual, even scientific field where you can teach or learn continually. What’s also very important to you is having buddies on the job, people to share your experiences with.

You may have a few unexpected, weird illnesses come and go, and need to watch over your levels of anxiety, stress and overthinking, all of which can have a negative physical effect. Getting grounded is also important, as you may lose touch with your body’s needs from time to time.

Sixth House in Pisces:

Healing, creative work tends to suit you best. You’re an empath at work, and people always tend to come to you with their woes, regardless of your field. Astrology suggests that if you don’t feel spiritually connected to the work you do, or if it doesn’t have meaning, you’ll constantly seek to escape. This can lead to poor physical habits which leads to poor health.

You tend to be highly sensitive to most things, including medication, so it’s important you listen closely to your body and what it is telling you. The same sensitivity applies to work, and you will always be the one to be able to pick up on the ‘vibes’. Having a calm, harmonious and purposeful working environment will make you the happiest.

    Let's just say that when I see your email, I can't help but smile and quickly go check out my horoscope. I'm learning so much about the "potentials" that the stars, the planets, and you (as a guide, an interpreter) allow me to align with (or not 😁❤️‍🩹).

    Hello, I'm donalding in California. I was elated to get your text message and your challenge to make a video testimonial. I'm at a huge crossroads and starting over and I am the oldest person in the dorms at West Hills College and California. I'm going to study and get smarter and figure a way out of this little mess. I didn't know about Pisces or any of these things coming into my life and I definitely need to avoid bullying. There are and things are going to be just fine. We are interconnected, we are, we are loving, we are not competitive, and we are not.

    Hi, guys. Me and the cat here say hello, Kitty. I think anytime you got a real person that you can see talking to you is better. I think just video in general makes everything better. It's more entertaining, it's easier than reading. So if you do your own fair share of reading, it's good to just be able to listen for a change. So I think it's a good thing. I don't know if I'm answering, really what you wanted me to address, but keep up the good work. I'm enjoying it anyways. Bye, guys. Bye.

    Hello. How you doing? Good morning. I just like to appreciate all the encouraging things and basically, like, being. Hitting everything on in the head, what goes on through my life and everything, you know, I'm a firm believer, and it's just a real blessing to have someone like you all to, you know, with the heads up, with the presence, just everything. And I just wanted to let you know, greatly appreciate of you, you all. And, um, like, I know I have a special calling in life. Just through various things just went on in my life. I could tell. It's like, you know, I haven't been through a lot. I've been through a lot, but I always let my good outweigh my bad, always keep me a positive head. And, you know, I do my best to speak life into my situations instead of doubt and complain most of the time because I know God's got my back regardless, through anything. But I just like to thank you for all you have done. And at times, I may even forget to look on, look on here. But when I do go back and look, I catch what need to be caught, you know, it's just that, you know, it's a busy point in my life right now. Like, it's real busy and. But I still make time through it all. I just like to say I thank you and I appreciate you all for each and everything. And when I do be able to receive the funds and start investing in this and help out, I will. Until then, thank you. I love you. Thank you. Bye.

    Kelli, I have come to RELY upon your dailies (Cancer), especially your unique Rating System! Feel LOST on those rare days when I don't have that going for me! So what has become of your daily "extras"? Are you taking a break and someone is subbing for you lately? I certainly hope that is the case and that you are well! Praying for you, love you! - Lou

    I just want you to know I absolutely love you. I rely on you. If I get rich, I'm taking you with me. I'm going to have you with me every day of my life just because it's kind of weird. It's kind of scary how dead on you are all the time. But you want to know what? I love you. Thank you for finding your way in my life. I love all your emails and everything. And sometimes it scares me and I just try to be like, okay, let me just steer away because I always feel like I'm missing out on something, being occupied by stuff I'd rather not be occupied by, entertaining people and stuff that shouldn't be, getting people blocking my blessings, I guess you'd say. But besides that, I just need to take a leap of faith and just go all in it because I know who I am, what I want and I can't get it when I'm sitting in the house not doing anything because I'm all depressed because of the people that I have, people that suck my energy away. I don't know how to explain it. Just people that front row cheer me on to fail. But seriously, I love you. Thank you. I appreciate you. Bye.

    Hey, Kelly. I am ready. If I had known I was going to be recording this, I would have worn some makeup. So anyway. Oh, that's my vanity speaking. Sorry about that. But anyway, I do love listening to you and I always acquire a lot of knowledge. I've been studying astrology since I was about eleven years old. I love it and I can't get enough of it. But I just wanted to let you know that I loved that quote from Eleanor Roosevelt that you put on there. It's so true. We need to live life while we have it and make the best of it. And astrology will help us lead the way. I'm assured of that. Anything we can learn when it comes to astrology will only help us to live a better life. And by your volunteering all your information, I thank you a million times over. You are such an asset. And I know the stars and the planets are shining down upon you and I listen to you all the time on YouTube and your Zoom channel and have a wonderful Thanksgiving and I hope your throat feels better. Kelli keeps drinking some hot. Thank you for everything you do. My name is Judith and I'm from Greensboro, North Carolina, and I'm a cancer and I love all of what you have to say. Thank you. Bye.
