So I'm thinking of asking my boss for a salary hike. This has been playing on my mind for a while, however, I do not feel confident in asking him, since he is quite useless, and a very detached person. He does not even understand the role I do, so let alone compensating me for it. However if one does not ask, one will never know. I drew up the chart and it does not looking very promising to me.In fact I see an opposition between me and the house of increase

I am mars in the 10th house of work, I would not say strong, but not weak either. House of gains is 2nd/Jupiter, my household expenses are increasing. Both Mars and Jupiter in 2 units will be in opposition, so expenses could be a challenge. I do not see this going well.
If I look at end of the matter, 4th from 2nd, would be 6th house, ruled by the sun, Sun conjuncts Mercury (next job) in 7 units..maybe a long shot, dont know.

I normally read salary increases as 11th house, since it is gain/salary of a job (2nd from 10th). I also look at the condition of the Moon, which hasn't been mentioned here. Moon is in a water sign and sign of the greater benefic but it is also decreasing in light. It is leaving a benefic via opposition and carries that light. Similarly, Mercury is in a water sign but is applying to combustion with the 10th lord. This could suggest a slight increase in pay if warranted. The 2nd lord probably just describes your current financial concerns and the fact that it is retrograding into a sign of Saturn and leaving its own dignity would suggest financial issues, as you stated already. With Jupiter lording finances, one has to look more carefully at how they manage their finances because there can be a tendency to over-spend or give money away to those in need too freely.

I wonder if the boss is Venus, since it lords the 7th and is in the 10th house. The 7th can show other people you work with and the 10th is associated with superiors. They are in fall but are Venus, which could show someone who tries to be helpful but may not have much ability to help. The 10th lord is strong but opposite Saturn so they may ne looking to cut costs rather than increase salaries at the moment and it might not be the best time to ask. The angles are also fixed so change is less likely to happen and I would not expect much of an increase.

I will say though that I did a similar chart a month ago and it didn't look great either but it didn't impact me specifically, it just showed the company has had to cut some stuff. I still got a good raise. In my case the Moon was also in Pisces but separating from Jupiter and was applying to trine Sun. In horary, one of the most positive aspects you can get is Moon-Sun trine so that probably helped the most. My 11th lord was Mars in the 8th in opp to my second lord Saturn in the 2nd. I think it was just showing the company is in some financial trouble. I have been searching for a second job as a backup. With the pandemic, companies are more likely to be going through hardship right now. That could be why your 11th house lord is in a water sign but applying towards combustion - their finances might be going through more loss than usual.

There are a lot of oppositions at the moment and it can feel very frustrating. It might be better to wait until the planets are a bit more friendly. Maybe check your own indicators in your natal for the best time too and I usually do an event chart for when I might ask for such a thing. There is a general article about financial gain in skyscript and you would want to look at it from a gain perspective rather than, say a loan, where you don't want to accumulate debt.

Good luck and keep us posted.

Hello ashwsh,

Your Mars is strong Angular at MC, conjunct Regulus and Free of beams. So you have a value for the organization yet you have no reception with VenusL7 and you are under the rulership of a strong Sun in LeoL10.
The Waning and Peregrine Moon applies by square to Fortuna at 12 Gemini ruled by MercuryL11 (the raise!), by conjunction to Neptune and by trine to Mercury.
But Mercury is leaving Cancer before the aspect perfects(Refranation).
Mercury in Cancer is also in the Fall of MarsL1
You will drop the matter. Wait for a more auspicious time as suggested by Tanit.

Good luck,

Thank you Tanit and Ouranos!

I thought about what you both have mentioned and it does sound about right.
Financially organization is struggling. However, if I look at myself, I think I need to wait a couple of months more. This will give time for the project I have executed to show results.

I am not surprised by my boss/Venus, having no aspect with me, because first, my boss has no idea or interest in knowing what any of us do. Secondly, as a person, he is so detached, that it would not bother him if any one of us quit or even I remember few months, there was an outbreak in my son's daycare of Covid-19, so I had to quartine him and myself for a few days. As a policy, I had to inform him and the HR manager about the same. While the HR manager and other team members kept a check on me, and if there were any symptoms, but my boss didn't even bother to message me once. His EQ is indeed poor, not sure about IQ too.

I'm hoping for my work situation to improve, or if not get find another job.
I am bleeding financially and need to control it somehow. I really don't know how to make an electional/event chart. Can you please guide me?

Thank you very much again

Here are some general guidelines for Electional
- The Moon is the most important factor to consider. It will show how things will pan out.
Dignified, not burned, aspected by benefics and Angular is a good rule of thumb. Avoid Cadent Houses, they have no power.
- As Tanit mentioned a good aspect between the Moon and the Sun is an excellent foundation for success and will improve any election.
- Waxing is best = increase
Of course, some things in life need a waning Moon
- Then the significators Jupiter, Sun, Venus and Moon favorably placed make successful affairs.
- Under a NM, never applying to a malefic.
- Cardinal signs will make things happen more quickly.
- Fortify the ASC and the IC (end of the matter)
- In your example, for a raise, tie up the Moon with Jupiter and Venus to the 11th House or Rulers and your ASC.

And here an excellent article by Steven Forrest on Electional's%20choice/articles/electional.html
