Mercury 8 deg. Pisces. - 8th house
Venus 3 deg Pisces - 8th house
Sun 27 deg Aquarius - 7th house

(feb 16th 1986, 3:30pm EST)

Pluto is heavy in the chart, in its domain and most aspects form are involving Pluto.

I can't figure out how to interperate this, or if this is even a stellium, I'm not sure if they have to be within 5 deg. of one point. or within 5 deg. of each other.

I wouldn't call that a stellium especially with the sun in Aquarius not Pisces, and being 11 degrees apart. But it will be interesting to see what others say.

I wouldn't call this a stellium, either. I'm going to err on the conservative side and say that a stellium really should be all in the same sign, unless one planet is only one or maybe two degrees out-of-sign.

Why do they need to be in the same sign? if there close enough to form the aspect shouldn't it not matter if they cross the signs?

Good question. James Wilson simply defines a stellium as a crowd of four or five planets.Fred Gettings allows them in one sign,in one house or even in an arc of less than 30 degrees. I don't know where he got that from but he wrote about a famous mundane stellium in medieval times.

Maybe we need to define this term in another thread.

my initial chart casting was wrong, i messed up the position of jupiter.

Now that stellium becomes more then what it was and now its even more bizzaar i think.

Well, there IS a stellium in Sagittarius. I was always under the impression that a stellium requires at least three planets in the same sign.

What the 8th house in your chart *does* contain, is a cluster. This puts a heavy focus on 8th house matters. Looks like the chart of a tycoon, to me, with 2nd ruler Sun conjunct Jupiter! Can I have some? Laughing
