WordPress – Western Style

Julianne of  Through the Peacock’s Eyes had suggested we team up to explore WordPress’ chart after noticing some patterns I mentioned on an earlier post. Please check out her Vedic Version and get 2 for the price of one! I am happy to serve up this fascinating chart,Western Style! (Western Astrology system)


First I sense an extremely sensitive, watery quality that involves the angles ( Ascendant and Midheaven)  and several planets (Sun, Moon, Pluto, Mars, Jupiter, and Neptune) and houses ( 8, 12). Let’s first examine the Cancer Ascendant. Here I see a nurturing, family oriented business, that comes across as caring and accessible.  The Moon, the ruler of Cancer, is placed in the prominent 10th house of public standing and destiny. Powerful Pluto in Sagittarius trines the moon, providing the instinctive ability to transform and grow as situations arise. With a Midheaven at 29 degrees Pisces, WordPress is incredibly evolved as a publishing entity. Neptune, which rules the Midheaven, is conjunct Mars in progressive, techno savvy Aquarius. In addition, The Gemini Sun rests on the 12th house cusp, adding a spiritual, behind the scenes flavor.  Mars in inventive, technological Aquarius is conjunct Neptune in the 8th house. This position indicates a receptive – go with the flow – vibe in the house of mystery, rebirth, and other people’s money. Jupiter opposes this planetary combo, adding a larger than life challenge to the mix. There is definitely an emotional, intuitive drive to WordPress.

Next I envision a team built upon optimism, enthusiasm, and genius. An abundance of Fire ( inspiration) and Air ( intellect) work together in unison to assist my favorite online platform. Sun in Gemini conjunct the North Node is versatile, charming, and positioned to shine as a way to fulfill its lifelong purpose. Moon in Aries is full of spark, optimism, and energy! Mars in Aquarius has a lovely quirkiness ( and genius potential) that me and my cohorts have come to know and love. Jupiter in Leo loves to relate with generosity, grandeur and dazzle.

This chart is excellent for attracting talented writers and for thriving as an online publishing leader. Moon in the 10th house means the people (Moon) are front and center. The 29 degree Pisces Midheaven is divinely inspired here. The last degree of Pisces is the final point on the karmic cycle. This is where true mastery and enlightenment resides! Venus is beautifully placed in Taurus here; conjunct Mercury in the 11th house. This denotes both a love of communication, and prosperity through communication in the house of group consciousness, hopes, wishes, and dreams. Jupiter – the purveyor of good fortune, holds court in creative Leo. This operates within the 2nd house, commanding respect and star power in the money/wealth domain. I think this is awesome beyond measure. This makes me wonder if an astrologer was consulted to choose such a successful business chart!

There are some challenges however that must be noted. A fixed T-Square is in effect involving Venus, Mercury, Jupiter, Mars, and Neptune. The outlet or solution to all this dynamic energy is Scorpio in the 5th house. Basically this means that injecting passion, creativity and focus into the working environment is important.  I would also expect that  an atmosphere committed to developing strong leadership, along with strategic planning will spell continued success for this relatively young enterprise.

I would also be aware of Chiron on the descendant in Capricorn. The Wounded Healer with a tendency towards ambition and austerity is in the 7th house of ” other.” The other is often the projected self that we prefer to overlook. This could mean some difficulties with all who partner with WordPress – bloggers, investors, the public, advertisers, etc. The silver lining with Chiron is that wisdom and mastery occur after the wounds turn into purpose and lessons learned. So proper planning and excellent public relations will serve WordPress well.

In order to be fair and objective, I needed to explore all the different forces in this chart. However, the majority of these placements are excellent for growth, expansion, innovation, and popularity. I predict this organization is a winner with a bright future ahead!

One quick personal aside ~ Matt Mullenweg was born on January 11th. That was the day I deliberately chose to begin my blog and create my first post. My readers know I love my elevens!  I did not know who Matt Mullenweg was back then, but find it to be a great blessing that we both share this special day!
