Part 3: Relationship Wants

Descendant in Gemini / Vertex in Leo (in the 8th House)

On a conscious level (Descendant), Hubbard will be attracted to partners who embody the Gemini qualities of being charming, intelligent, sociable, and articulate. Gemini on the Descendant also suggests that he’s attracted to younger partners. Because Hubbard lacks any planets in Air in his chart, he is likely to be very drawn to partners who embody the energy of Air. While Gemini is square his Moon in Virgo by sign, Mercury rules both signs, and therefore the Descendant in Gemini partners have a reasonable chance at meeting Hubbard’s Safety Needs. They have a much better chance of meeting his Venus in Aries Validation Needs, however, because Aries and Gemini are sextile by sign.

On an unconscious level (Vertex), Hubbard is drawn to partners who embody the Leo qualities, and are courageous, dramatic, loyal, and outgoing. These partners will do an excellent job of meeting his Venus in Aries Validation Needs, but they will have a hard time meeting his Moon in Virgo Safety Needs.

07 Hubbard 5th

L. Ron Hubbard looks for casual romantic partners (5th house) who align with his need to feel Validated and align with his Core Values (Venus) in a manner that is assertive, inspiring, headstrong, and overconfident (Aries), WITH his personal creativity, self-expression, and tolerance for risk (Rules 5th house), his job (Rules 6th house), and his career and life path (Rules 10th house). He is most likely to meet these partners IN his home and personal life (Venus in 4th House) [Blueprint Sentence]

Obviously, it’s odd to say that with the ruler of the 5th in the 4th, that Hubbard will meet his romantic partners in his home and personal life, so let’s address that first. In a broader sense, the 4th house relates to our foundation, ancestry, and tribe. In Hubbard’s case, it’s reasonable to interpret his “tribe” as his acolytes and devotees, and so we could assume he would select his lovers from there. This makes sense, as we can assume from what we’ve explored so far about Hubbard, that what he finds most attractive in a potential romantic partner is their willingness to worship him and cater to his every whim.

Venus in Aries partners, however, are likely to be far too independent for anything other than a brief, passionate, and mainly physical encounter.

08 Hubbard 7th

L. Ron Hubbard marriage and relationships with other individuals (7th house) involve being able to communicate and understand (Mercury) in a manner that is intuitive, artistic, nebulous, and scattered (Pisces) WITH his marriage, partnerships, and relationships with other individuals (Rules 7th house). He is most likely to meet these partners IN his familiar environment, and his daily routine (Mercury in 3rd House). [Blueprint Sentence]

Again, we see the suggestion that Hubbard doesn’t have to look very far to find his romantic partners. While his 5th house lovers are apt to be passionate and independent (and perhaps offer him the thrill of the chase), his 7th house partners are far more likely to believe what they’re told and suffer in relative silence as they make Hubbard the center of their universe.

11th House: Friendships

09 Hubbard 11th

L. Ron Hubbard is likely to become friends (11th house) with people who align with his need to take action and expend energy (Mars) in a manner that is practical, ambitious, ruthless, and demanding (Capricorn), WITH his home and family (Rules 4th), his hopes and aspirations (Rules 11th), his unconscious and shadow self (Rules 12th), and his money and resources (Almuten 2nd). He is most likely to meet these partners IN his financial dealings (Mars in 2nd House). [Blueprint Sentence]

Hubbard’s friends would tend to be people of similar wealth and influence, who also share Hubbard’s drive and ambition. While Hubbard would initially be attracted to these men (it’s too much to imagine Hubbard being friends with a woman), it’s inevitable that his ego would begin to view them as threats.

Connections Between 5th, 7th and 11th Houses

Mars in Capricorn, the Ruler of the 11th house rules Venus in Aries, the ruler of the 5th house, suggesting that he may choose a friend (11th house) to become a lover (5th house). There’s also an easy connection between the 5th and 7th houses: Venus, the ruler of the 5th has 4 votes on Mercury in Pisces (Ruler of 7th) Board of Directors, and both Boards of Directors are heavily influenced by Mars and Jupiter. It’s unlikely, however, that anyone would be able to move from a 5th or 7th house relationship to an 11th house friendship.

Marriage Blueprint

Father (Ruler of 4th House):
Mars in Capricorn in the 2nd House
Mars rules 4th, 11th, 12th, Almuten 2nd

Mother (Ruler of 10th House):
Venus in Aries in the 4th House
Venus Rules 5th, 6th, and 10th Houses

10 Hubbard Parents

There’s no question as to who has the power in Hubbard’s Marriage Blueprint. His father (Mars in Capricorn) is strongly dignified, while his mother (Venus in Aries) is even more strongly debilitated, being peregrine and in Detriment. Moreover, he would have experienced his mother as being kept on an exceptionally short leash. Not only does Mars (father) rule Venus (mother), but his mother is IN his father’s house (Venus in 4th house).

By all accounts, Hubbard embodied the very worst elements of his Marriage Blueprint. He was married three times, and there is much evidence that he subjected his wives to prolonged psychological abuse.
