I wondered if anyone could give me more information on these. I have Cancer/Capricorn intercepted with Scorpio/Taurus duplicated. So far, I understand that I would have trouble expressing things related with Cancer or Capricorn, and I am guessing the signs that are duplicated and the houses are strong points? I would appreciate any clarification!

That is the way I look at it. However, the closer a person's birth gets to the North or South pole, the more interceptions their chart is going to have, so some people ignore interceptions or use systems which don't have interceptions.

Giving options,

Hi mysticaldream,

Here are a couple of links for you. Hope they help.

Duplicated Signs

Taurus and Scorpio Duplicated: Stability, persistence, practicality, and accumulation of resources and values are the way out of the problems indicated by your intercepted signs . This is especially true in the things governed by the houses with Taurus on the cusp. The opposite houses will have Scorpio on the cusp, and that is where you can have power, where you can influence the values of the people around you. The houses with Scorpio on the cusp also show where and how you can regenerate yourself whenever you feel drained. Be sure to check the location of Venus and Pluto (Mars as well; it’s the secondary ruler of Scorpio) to get further information (and to see if there are contrary indicators).

Intercepted Signs

Cancer-Capricorn Intercepted: Cancer rules emotions and our home, out personal space. Capricorn governs our ambitions and our ability to make it “out there” in the world. Both of them are Cardinal Signs, signs of action. The signs before them are Mutable Signs, signs of communication. When Cancer and Capricorn are intercepted, we may have no trouble talking about what we are going to do. The problem is actually DOING something!

Compare intercepted Cancer (a cardinal sign) with intercepted Aries (also a cardinal sign). With an Aries interception, Pisces (a mutable sign) is on the house cusp, so we can dream easily enough, but there is trouble taking action to bring the dreams into reality. With intercepted Cancer, we have another mutable sign, Gemini, on the house cusp. This means we can intellectualize, but there is trouble expressing how we feel about anything. When emotions do come out, they can do so suddenly and fitfully. With the intercepted Aries, our assertion and aggressiveness tends to be inappropriate, so other people don’t accept it. With intercepted Cancer, our emotional expression is also likely to be inappropriate (usually, it is some sort of outburst) and that also is a major turn off.

Sagittarius begins the house where Capricorn is intercepted. Sagittarius is the architect, Capricorn is the builder. Usually, there is no trouble making plans. The problem is actually DOING something about them. Capricorn is also the organizer. When it’s intercepted, our ability to organize and control is blocked. When it does come out, that cheerful, happy-go-lucky Sagittarius that everybody sees in us disappears. Suddenly, there is a Capricorn control freak! Once again, like the inappropriate aggression of intercepted Aries and the inappropriate emotional outbursts of intercepted Cancer, the sudden discipline and desire for control of an intercepted Capricorn is usually…inappropriate.

In the Northern hemisphere, if late Sagittarius is on the Ascendant, Capricorn is usually intercepted. The people with this were, in early childhood, forced to suppress their serious, ambitious side (Capricorn) and put on a happy face (Sagittarius). In the 7th house where Cancer is intercepted, one of two things can happen. Either the marriage partner seems to be a sparkling, talkative, intellectual Gemini (not necessarily a Gemini Sun sign, but a Gemini type) who later turns into a complaining, demanding whiner, or the partner pictures us as the light, breezy Gemini type and WE turn into the negative Cancer type, with never-ending emotional demands.

An example of intercepted Cancer and Capricorn is Oprah Winfrey. She has a Sagittarius Ascendant with Capricorn intercepted in her first house and a Cancer interception in her 7th. Wait a minute! Oprah is a workaholic. She isn’t all talk and no action, and she certainly doesn’t suppress her Capricorn drive and ambition.

First of all, where is her Saturn (the ruler of Capricorn)? It makes a close square with her Sun and Venus. That’s her way out. She got into that “locked room”, that intercepted sign, and stayed there! Secondly, Sagittarius and Gemini, the signs that appear on the cusps of the houses containing the interceptions, are also her duplicated signs. This means that they also offer a way out of her problems. All talk and no action? Talking IS the way Oprah takes action. She has a talk show, a magazine, and a book club.

Intercepted Planets:

And from March & McEvers: An intercepted planet's energies are initally weak and not easily accessed. As your chart progresses, and as you experience transits to these planets the energy will be released and may actually get stronger as you age. Until then, their power is caged, waiting a release and is seen as subtle.

Once one learns to use the intercepted planets force, the energy can actually be very powerful. It is like the releasing of water held back by a flood gate.

I made a post that I think is similar to this, a few weeks ago. maybe someone can help.

my scorpio sun is in house 10. so does the fact that my sun appears in that house intensify any other house placements in 10 (my saturn is in scorpio house 10 too. and mercury is in scorpio (some say merc is sag) is in house 10). does this intensify my ascendent in cap?

Seems like a lot of cap/scorp mingling. Also, when looking at house positions. my 10th house is scorpio.

in fact lots of earth/water mingling. when looking at house positions. house 8 is in virgo. house 4 is in tarus. house 2 is in pisces. my jupiter is in capricorn in house 12. my true node is taurus in house 4.

fire/air thing going on too. moon in aries in the 3rd house. venus in sag in 11th house. uranus in sag in 11th house. as far as positions, house 3 is aries. house 5 is gemini. house 9 is libra. house 11 is sag.

But I think the earth/water is even more uncanny.

Thanks for all of the input!
It's definitely "food for thought"!
Does anyone else have this with their houses?

Yup! I have this with the Placidus houses but, it disappears when Koch houses are used... I have yet to get what they are about....
Anyway, here's how my chart looks...

** edit** ... I was mistaken... it does not disappear using the Koch houses, it actually changes the 6th/12th Scorpio/Taurus to 5th/11th Aries/Libra... the Aquarius/Leo 3rd/9th remains the same in either house system... ***

I have Virgo (12th and 1st Houses) and Pisces (6th and 7th Houses) duplicated, with Leo (11th House) and Aquarius (5th House) intercepted.
