Alien Constructs

 

The following information is primarily based on the work of the late Edwin Steinbrecher whom I studied with from 1985 through 1988.  Since that time, I have analyzed thousands of my clients’ charts for greater clarity on the topic and consequently, I have added my own expanded rules and applications.  This material is copyrighted, but you may freely quote it provided you cite the source as Edwin Steinbrecher and Stephanie Jourdan, Ph.D.

Astrologically-speaking what is an alien?

 An alien or alien construct occurs when one of the outer planets is near or at the same degree number as the Sun, the Moon, the ascendant, the descendant or the chart ruler in the birth chart.

Outer planets include Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.

The chart ruler is the planet that corresponds to the sign of the ascendant.  The ruler of the native’s shadow and spirit is the planet that corresponds to the sign of the descendant, which is 180 degrees opposite of the ascendant.

When a soul chooses a birth date, time and location that includes an alien construct, he/she/they is allowing him/her/their self to be a conduit for that planet’s character and expression.  As a rule, the outer planets rule impersonal phenomena within an individual’s life.  This is no longer the case for the individual born during the time an alien construct was in formation.

For instance, among other things, Saturn rules time, gravity, cynicism, foundations, logic, higher order, authority, manifestation, lead (the element), law, fame, corporations, government and the physical plane of existence.  These are important things and dynamics, but they pertain more to the world and its systems.  Can an individual be cynical, famous and logical?  Yes, of course.  However, in a Saturn alien’s chart, one or more of Saturn’s qualities tend to color everything in their life and are even tools for self-actualization.

Uranus rules atmosphere, irreversible change, the future, earthquakes, electricity, inventions, conceptions, quantum leaps, innovations, events, the Internet, television, radio, breakdowns, breakthroughs, chaos, Divine Foolishness, genius, community, politics and the causal plane.

Neptune rules the collective unconscious, addictions, spiritual essence, ghosts, emotions, the dream world, being out-of-body, clouds, the ocean, institutions, music, ideals, film, iconic images and the astral plane.

Pluto rules power, the occult, the destruction of everything not built upon truth, research, surgery, shamans, the stock market, transformation, taxes, birth, death, sex and that which can be seen by only a few.

Edwin Steinbrecher named the outer planet patterns alien to denote that individuals possessing such a chart are different from other humans; more like a different species than simply different by degree. 

Aliens typically have pretty rough childhoods, especially adolescence.  However, they do seem to possess a supernatural ability.  

Saturnian Aliens manifest easily.

Uranian Aliens channel.

Neptunian Aliens are empaths, telepaths or psychics 

Plutonian Aliens transform raw energy into a higher form or vibration as in the Rumplestiltskin fable of spinning straw into gold   Plutonians also assist others cross over at death. They also help younger aliens learn the ropes of coping with the needs of the alien pattern planet.

Getting down to brass tacks.

 An alien chart contains one or more of the following conditions:

  1. One of the outer planets is at or within 15 degrees of the Sun.  This is a power alien construct.
  2. One of the outer planets is at or within 10 degrees of the Moon.  This is a vessel alien construct.
  3. One of the outer planets is at or within 10 degrees of the Ascendant.  This is an instrument alien construct.
  4. One of the outer planets is at or within 7 degrees of the Descendant.  This is a shadow alien construct.
  5. One of the outer planets is positioned at a degree number that is the same as the ruler of the Ascendant or is within two degree of the same number.  This is an Activator alien construct.
  6. Mercury, Venus, Chiron or Jupiter (bridge planets) sits between the Sun, Moon, Ascendant or chart ruler and the outer planet within 10 degrees of each. This is a Bridge alien construct.

Here is an example of an outer planet being at or within 15 degrees of the Sun: The person is born with their Sun located at 28 degrees Aquarius and their Saturn was a 7 degrees Pisces.

There are 30 degrees per sign, so we would start at 28 and count off fifteen numbers in either direction to see whether there is an outer planet within that 15-degree orb. 

We will start from the Sun at 28 degrees.  As we count counter-clockwise, it would be 29, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13.  The counting has gone beyond the sign it commenced with, in this example Aquarius, and has entered the next consecutive sign of Pisces.  Since Saturn is at 7 degrees Pisces, it is well within the 15-degree orb. 

If it had been at 13 degrees Aquarius, it would also have been within the 15-degree orb.  Both directions are included.  As we count clockwise from the Sun at 28 degrees, it would be 27, 26, 25, 24, 23, 22, 21, 20, 19, 18, 17, 16, 15, 14 and 13. 

When considering whether an outer planet is at or within 10 degrees of the Moon, count off ten degrees in both directions.  If the person has their Moon located at 4 degrees Leo and Pluto at 15 degrees Leo, it would not be considered an alien construct.

To demonstrate with this example of the Moon at 4 degrees Leo, we count in each direction.  First, counterclockwise in the sign of Leo:  5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14.  Second, clockwise starting in Leo and moving backwards into the sign of Cancer: 3, 2, 1, 0, 29, 28, 27, 26, 25 and 24.  Since Pluto is at 15 degrees, it is one degree outside the 10-degree orb.

The same applies when considering whether an outer planet is at or within 10 degrees of the Ascendant.

The same applies when considering whether an outer planet is at or within 7 degrees of the Descendant

To determine whether an outer planet is at the same degree as the descendant, look at the ASC symbol for the ascendant and then look across the wheel in the 7th house to plot the descendant exactly 180 degrees opposite the ascendant.  Check the degree of the Ascendant.  Before the symbol is a number that represents how many degrees have passed in the sign at the time of birth.  After the symbol for the sign of the ascendant is the number that represents how many minutes have elapsed towards the next degree.  There are thirty degrees per sign and, of course, sixty minutes per hour.  If the number is over 30, then you are definitely looking at the minute number.  

Check to see whether there is also a symbol for one of the outer planets at that same degree and sign of the descendant. It does not need to be at the same minute, but it can be the prior degree if it is under an hour away.  And it can be a number up to 7 degrees ahead or behind.

For example, if the descendant is 21 degrees Scorpio and Neptune is located between 14 and 28 degrees Scorpio and, the native is considered a Neptune Shadow Alien.

Once you know what planet rules the ascendant, check to see whether one of the outer planets is at the same degree as that planet creating an Activator construct.

The person is born with Gemini rising.  The planetary ruler of Gemini is Mercury.  The planet Mercury is at 13 degrees Virgo and the planet Pluto is at 13 degrees Cancer.

Some signs have co-rulers, such as Aries, which is ruled by both Mars and the Sun.  In this instance, either planet would qualify.

Rulers of signs:

Aries is ruled by Mars and the Sun.

Taurus is ruled by Venus.

Gemini is ruled by Mercury.

Cancer is ruled by the Moon.

Leo is ruled by the Sun.

Virgo is ruled by Mercury and the dwarf planet Chiron.

Libra is ruled by Venus.

Scorpio is ruled by Pluto and Mars.

Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter.

Capricorn is ruled by Saturn.

Aquarius is ruled by Uranus and Saturn.

Pisces is ruled by Neptune and Jupiter.

When considering whether an outer planet is linked by a Bridge planet to the Sun, Moon, the Ascendant or the chart ruler, the bridge planet should be located between the two.  There can be a maximum of ten degrees between the bridge planet and the Sun, Moon, Ascendant or chart ruler on one side and no more than then degrees between the bridge planet and the outer planet on the other side.  

For instance, if the person has their Moon located at 25 degrees Cancer, Venus at 29 degrees Cancer and Saturn 9 degrees Leo, he would qualify as a Saturn Vessel Alien even though the span of the number of degrees between the Moon and Saturn is 19 degrees.  Venus as the bridge planet is within a 10-degree arc of both the Moon and Saturn. 

To demonstrate, we count in each direction away from both sides of the Moon to see what lies within a ten degree orb.  First, counterclockwise, starting in the sign of Cancer, we count 26, 27, 28, 29 and continue up through six more digits in the succeeding sign of Leo, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.  Second, clockwise, starting in Cancer and moving backwards, we count 24, 23, 22, 21, 20, 19, 18, 17, 16 and 15.  Venus is only four degrees away from the Moon, so it is within 10 degrees.  If we count from the Venus towards Saturn, we see that it is within 10 degrees of Saturn: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9.

Is there any significance as to how close or far away the outer planet is from the Sun, Moon or Ascendant? 

Yes.  In general, the closer the space between them, the more dramatically and intensely the native (person whose chart it is) feels he/she/they is being controlled by that outer planet.

It also depends on the planetary combination.  If the outer planet is naturally at ease with the Sun, the Moon or the ascendant sign, then the close proximity is felt in a fairly harmonious way.

Saturn and the Sun demand adjustments from each other.  The closer or tighter the orb, i.e., fewer degrees, the more intensely the native (person whose chart it is) feels these two planets making demands upon him/her/them. Saturn likes to regulate, control, limit and contain.  The Sun likes to emanate, create, play and generate more and more.  Depending upon where they are in the chart, there will be a need to combine these two energies.

Saturn and the Moon have completely different natures.  Saturn rules public life, father, linear experience, logic, lean body, and corporations. The Moon rules private life, mother, processing, intuition, fat, and grassroots-organizations.  There will be a tendency to favor one mode or the other depending on which one has stronger,
more harmonious aspects in the overall chart.  When these two show up together, it’s important to find ways to give them both expression.

When the construct includes the ascendant, it affects the native’s identity, role in life, how they express their independence, how others see them, and how them influence others.  The closer together the outer planet is to the ascendant, the more they influence others through their appearance, behavior, opinions and roles.

If you already know astrology, think in terms of the rulers of the signs in a natural chart.  If the two rulers are one sign, two signs or four signs apart, they harmonize well.  If they are three signs apart, there is tension.  If they are five signs apart, there is need for adjustment to work together.  If they are 180 degrees apart, the native needs to find a way to give each conscious expression.

Sun and Saturn – rulers of the 5th and 10th houses – are 150 degrees apart, so they need adjustments to express their alien nature through the native in a healthy, happy way.

Sun and Uranus – rulers of the 5th and 11th houses – are 180 degrees apart, so they each need equal conscious expression in the native’s life.

Sun and Neptune – rulers of the 5th and 12th houses – are 150 degrees apart, so they need adjustments.

Sun and Pluto – rulers of the 5th and 8th houses – are 90 degrees apart, so there tends to be tension until the native finds a way to be empowered creatively and sexually.

Moon and Saturn – rulers of 4th and 10th houses – are 180 degrees apart so both need equal expression.

Moon and Uranus – rulers of 4th and 11th houses – are 150 degrees apart so they need adjustments.

Moon and Neptune – rulers of 4th and 12th houses – are 120 degrees apart so they are naturally harmonious.

Moon and Pluto – rulers of 4th and 8th houses – are 120 degrees apart so they are naturally harmonious.

Aries Rising and Saturn – rulers of 1st and 10th houses – are 90 degrees apart so they are stressed.  Typically, there is a need for helpful boundaries while being open to new experience.

Taurus Rising and Saturn – rulers of 2nd and 10th houses – are 120 degrees apart so they are harmonious.

Gemini Rising and Saturn – rulers of 3rd and 10th houses – are 150 degrees apart so they need adjustments.

Cancer Rising and Saturn – rulers of 4th and 10th houses – are 180 degrees apart so both need equal expression.

Leo Rising and Saturn – rulers of 5th and 10th houses – are 150 degrees apart so they need adjustments.

Virgo Rising and Saturn – rulers of 6th and 10th house – are 120 degrees apart so they are harmonious.

Libra Rising and Saturn – rulers of 7th and 10th houses – are 90 degrees apart so they are stressed.  Typically, there is a need for mutual independence and support.

Scorpio Rising and Saturn – rulers of 8th and 10th houses – are 60 degrees apart so they are naturally harmonious.

Sagittarius Rising and Saturn – rulers of 9th and 10th houses – are 30 degrees apart so they are natural neighbors and things tend to express easily enough.

Capricorn Rising and Saturn – both rulers of the 10th house – this is a very effective alien construct.

Aquarius Rising and Saturn – rulers of 11th and 10th houses – are 30 degrees apart so they tend to express themselves together fairly easily.  Before Uranus was discovered, Saturn was the ruler of Aquarius, which further enhances this alien construct.

Pisces Rising and Saturn – rulers of 12th and 10th houses – are 60 degrees apart so they are naturally harmonious.

How can I tell whether I have an alien pattern in my chart?

1)  Power Aliens: Look at the glyph, the icon, for the Sun.  It is a circle with a dot in the middle of it.  If an outer planet’s glyph is within 15 degrees in either direction, you have a Power Alien Construct. 

2)  Vessel Aliens: Look at the glyph for the Moon.  It is a crescent.  If an outer planet’s glyph is within 10 degrees in either direction, you have a Vessel Alien Construct.

3)  Instrument Aliens:  Look at the degree of the ascendant, the number followed by a small circle, representing degrees at the exact 9:00 o’clock position on the chart.  If an outer planet’s glyph is within 10 degrees in either direction, you have an Instrument Alien Construct.

4)  Shadow Aliens: One of the outer planets’ glyphs or symbols will be at the same degree as the Descendant found in the 7th house. 

5)  Activator Aliens:  Look at the degree the planet that is the chart ruler is positioned at.  If an outer planet’s glyph is at the same degree as the chart ruler, you have an Activator Alien Construct.  For instance, the chart has Aries rising, which makes Mars the chart ruler.  Mars is at 18 degrees Libra and Uranus is at 18 degrees Cancer.

6)  Bridge Aliens:  If you see an outer planet near the Sun, Moon or Ascendant within ten degrees of that and within ten degrees of another outer planet.

Can non-aliens become aliens?

Yes.  The practice of predictive astrology includes the generation of a chart that moves all of the planets forward (or backwards if the planet was or goes retrograde) a day for every year that elapses following the native’s birth.   For instance, if you were born in 1970, your secondary-progressed chart in the year 2000 would reflect where the planets were 30 days after your birth because 30 years would have elapsed since your birth year.

As planets closer to the Sun move through the signs more quickly, they will ‘catch up’ with and align with planets further away from the Sun, producing alien constructs.  When this happens, a non-alien experiences his life as an alien.

Saturnian Power Aliens are able to: manifest from the heart; create sacred forms and altars; turn time backwards or forwards; create successful empires; hear the Earth murmurings and build according to her desires; heal crystals; heal with crystals; heal others’ teeth, skeleton, hair and skin; protect humanity from its own foibles; lead humanity into the New Age; recognize false leaders and ego-driven schemes; sustain loyalty to Divine Principle; stabilize a large group; and manifest anything into three-dimensional reality.

Saturnian Vessel Aliens are able to: establish a world family; intuit the strategies or world leaders; manifest protective shields; draw nurturing energy up from the Earth; heal others father-abandonment issues; energetically-assist women in pregnancy; intuit weakness or disease within a corporation; read memories stored in crystals; and create life-extending or life-sustaining rituals

Plutonian Shadow Aliens tend to form partnerships or marriages with individuals who take them into a sort of underworld experience.  The Pluto Shadow Alien may describe how he was swept off his feet, deftly courted and seduced.  Once secured in the underworld, the partner shifts from worship to humiliation, seeking out the Alien’s vulnerabilities and often using knowledge of same to destroy the Alien’s ego.

For instance, a young Pluto Shadow Alien might meet an older, seemingly powerful, yet secretly cruel man, who wines and dines her, then seduces her into a quick marriage where she becomes dependent and somewhat enslaved to him.  She bears his children while he has lovers on the side.  When she senses all is not right and confronts him, he convinces her that her suspicious nature will destroy them and she ends up begging for his forgiveness.

Partners help the Plutonian Shadow Alien to confront the true nature of power, sex, release, and resurrection.  The alien sees an underdeveloped power in the partner and confronts his own naiveté about the right use of power.

The descendant represents those qualities that an individual has chosen to deny by the age of seven years old.

Do certain types of aliens function better together?

Yes.

Saturnian aliens get along well with all the other aliens. 

Uranian aliens get along well with other Uranians, plus Saturnians and Neptunians.  They are sometimes too flakey, superficial or immature for Plutonians.

Neptunian aliens get along well with all the other aliens.

Plutonian aliens do best with Neptunians, but they can also be happy with Saturnians.

Uranian and Plutonian types can harmonize if one of them has their Moon in the same sign as the other’s alien sign, especially when it is the Sun and Pluto.  For instance, the Uranian alien has his Sun or Moon or Ascendant and Uranus in the sign of Virgo and his Moon in Libra.  The Plutonian alien has his Sun and Pluto in the sign of Libra.  This Uranian alien has his Moon in the same sign as the Plutonian alien’s Pluto.

Each alien has special abilities. The Aliens can also suffer physical maladies due to unexpressed energy of the alien construct. This typically shows up as dental problems for Saturnian aliens, seizures for Uranian aliens, alcoholism for Neptunian aliens; and Venereal disease for Plutonian aliens.

If you are a Saturnian Alien, your life will probably flow a lot easier if you get regular chiropractic or osteopathic adjustments.  You also need help balancing calcium in your body and should check into whether or not you need more magnesium and silica. Dental work has much more impact upon you than non-Saturnian Aliens, so find a dentist that really understands your specific needs who uses bio-compatible materials.  You may want to take Arnica, a homeopathic remedy, after any dental work.  All of the Aliens have a special relationship to the crystal kingdom, but especially Saturnian Aliens as they rule structure and form.  

There are many crystals that will be of particular assistance to you.  Nuummite is an invaluable manifestation tool in your hands. Jet will help you calm your emotions and negate your anxieties and onyx will help you let go of negative thoughts.

Uranian Aliens do well to work with Aragonite, Septarian Nodule (Dragon Stone), Rhodonite and blue sapphire. Aragonite frees them from stuck patterns or oppressive people and situations.  Septarian Nodule keeps their brain in peak condition.  Rhodonite enables meditation and channeling. Blue sapphire helps connect mind, body and spirit with clarity.

Neptunian Aliens benefit from elixirs made from jade, tourmaline and  turquoise.  Neptunian Vessels (Neptune conjunct the Moon) need Blue Moonstone to calm worry and aid digestion.

Plutonian Aliens need Black Tourmaline, Black Obsidian, Carnelian, rubies and turquoise.
