< Michael Jackson Financial Significator >
This delineation focuses both on a cluster of significators of wealth (Jupiter, Moon, rulers of the 2nd) and a special significator that is supposed to show where the native makes his wealth, whether by good or bad means, etc. Then there are some predictive techniques (some of which I omit since I don’t know the state of his income levels!)
One thing not apparent in this delineation is that the financial significator is found through a ranking system: starting with the POF, you see if each candidate meets certain criteria. If it fails, you reject it as the significator and move to the next one. The more you reject, the poorer the native is. In MJ’s case, the POF is in a good situation, with a very benefic Jupiter as its dispositor – so it was the significator, indicates strong, wealth, and there was no need to go any further.
1. Rulers of the 2nd:
Almuten/domicile: Moon. Angular in 10th; afflicted by Saturn square. She can perform but not at high level.
Exalted: Jupiter. Succeedent in 5th, in triplicity and unafflicted.
Triplicity: Mars. Detriment and cadent. Cannot perform.
Triplicity: Venus. Angular in 4th. Afflicted by square to Mars. She can perform but not at high level.
Triplicity: Moon. See above.
Term: Mars. See above.
Jupiter: The native’s strongest and most lasting source of income by this method is through activities involving entertainment (5th), children (5th), travel, teaching (Jupiter by nature).
2. Triplicity rulers of 2nd
corresponding to 1/3 of life:
First third: Mars. Cadent, detriment. Income lowest here.
Second third: Venus. Angular, afflicted by Mars. Income strong.
Third third: Moon. Angular, afflicted by Saturn. Income strong.
3. Jupiter (natural significator of
4. Moon (another natural
So native does have wealth that comes mainly from activities surrounding entertainment, children, travel, teaching. His income will increase as he gets older, and while there are troubles and contentions afflicting his money situation, generally things look good.
Specific significator (FS)
a. Part of Fortune (3 Sag 29). Unafflicted. Triplicity ruler Sun aspects it, and the Sun is himself unafflicted and strong.
The POF is the special financial significator. Being at the top of the list, it shows wealth and ease in getting it. Its dispositor is Jupiter, succeedent and unafflicted in the 5th – again, from entertainments, etc.
By quadrant, its almuten is Mars. By
whole sign houses, its almuten is Jupiter.
Where the native gets his wealth:
POF in the 6th: native gets wealth from subordinates and people who attend to him. (Could this mean fans?)
Almuten of the 6th is in the 12th: from institutions, confinements, secret enemies. (Could this mean on account of difficult contracts and other means that make life confining?)
By whole sign houses, the almuten of the POF is Jupiter (see above).
By what activities:
Ruler of POF is Jupiter, unafflicted: from offices and responsibilities, managing important things.
Legality and licitness of the
Again, the ruler is Jupiter. He sextiles the Sun, significator of fame. So the native makes his money by licit and laudable means.
Location of the ruler of the ASC:
In the 4th. The family and the native’s property (i.e., immoveable property like a home) also plays a positive role in his accumulation of wealth.
When wealth is gotten:
Triplicity rulers (see above): in the latter 2/3 of life.
Primary direction of POF:
Square the MC: Sept 1977 (Age 19)
Oppose ASC: August 1988 (Age 29-30)
Sextile Sun: June 1994 (Age 35)
Trine Sun: Feb 1997 (Age 38)
(Remember primary directions don’t show every important event)
Profecting the 2nd house is probably not worth doing, in an extensive way, since you’d pretty much have to be his accountant to know what his income was year to year. But I do note that his profected 2nd comes to the 12th house this year, which has a Mars in detriment (he also afflicts the ruler of the 12th). Malefics mean expenses, so the native will have many debts and expenses this year.
Firdar of the FS’s ruler (Jupiter): Aug 1978 – Aug 1990 (Ages 20 – 32).
The native’s wealth is strong and comes easily. His most lasting and strong source of income some on account of activities involving entertainment, fun, children, teaching and traveling. He will have important managerial responsibilities in earning it, and he will make his money by licit and laudable means.
His family and property will also play a positive role in his accumulation of wealth.
He may also gain wealth on account of subordinates or people serving him; and institutions or secret enemies or otherwise things that confine and restrict him. [Note: if this is correct, perhaps it means fans and restrictive contracts and managers? I favor Jupiter, but there may be something to this.]
His wealth will be greatest in the last 2/3 of life, and there will be an extra emphasis on finances from 1978-90. [Note his great fame and wealth during this period, especially the Jupiter-Sun firdar – Jupiter is wealth, the Sun fame, and they are strong and in aspect in the natal figure.]
