Planets in The Sixth House
The 6th house is naturally associated with the sign of Virgo and its ruler Mercury. Having expressed our creativity in the 5th, the 6th house is where we are confronted with the need to adjust to, and learn from, the demands of the material world. This is the house associated with work and service. The 6th house indicates the nature of, and our attitude toward, our working environment and our relations with co-workers, employees or bosses. It is also connected with health and the interaction of mind and body to maintain the efficient (or inefficient) working of our physical bodies.
The houses up to the 7th are all below the horizon and, are concerned with areas of life in which we seek to establish our own sense of individuality. The houses from the 7th to the 12th are above the horizon, and represent the experiences involved in seeking to function as part of a wider social environment.

Sun in the 6th House
All these needs and feelings largely revolve around health and work. If you are happily or gainfully employed you feel right with the world - when you are not, you don't. So although you put your heart and soul into your job, there can be a danger of your investing emotions into work that don't really belong there. As a consequence of this, you can get too wound up about your work, or use work as a substitute for emotional involvements that have nothing to do with work. Get my Soul Scope Report
Moon in the 6th House
All these needs and feelings are most likely to be met through friends, clubs, social movements, or the nurturing of some ideal. All these matters will go through phases, causing your goals and allegiances to fluctuate. Overall, you manage to keep your emotional life fairly light and breezy.
You prefer not to get morbid and heavy in one-to-one relationships and, if things get that way, you will go out with friends or to somewhere impersonal. This can be a good safety valve, but a bad habit if you make your friends or associations into an emotional crutch. It is wise to take a break from them every so often in order to re-establish your own identity, not to mention facing any more intimate emotional commitments.
All the same, you are capable of appealing to the crowd on an emotional level, which means that you have a finger on the pulse of the public's attitude to political, sociological or cultural issues. Get my Soul Scope Report
Mercury in the 6th House
You use these mental capabilities very well, with focus and economy. You have a knack for perceiving what's wrong with a person or situation and are able to devise or suggest methods to improve matters. Health is one area in particular where your mental powers can be successfully brought to bear but it's also possible that you're prone to overwork and nervous tension yourself. A definite health regimen and work routine would help to remedy these inclinations. Essentially you are a good worker and appreciate the true value of work. Get my Soul Scope Report
Venus in the 6th House
These love feelings of yours are going through a process of purification so whatever is false, or unjust, or lustful about your social or romantic intentions has to be eliminated in order that a healthy relationship might happen. In fact, 'healthy relationship' sums up the only kind of relationship that you could really enjoy consistently.
Where there is a lack of purity in your loving you will experience loss, or illness - particularly to the throat, hips, kidneys or reproductive organs. You really have to work at love. Love and work also come together in that your work itself can be to do with harmony and beauty, or simply that you lend an air of grace and charm to your work place. Get my Soul Scope Report
Mars in the 6th House
You most readily use and develop these powers when in a work situation, or when you have some definite method to use or job to do. You wholeheartedly put your energies into anything to do with employment, which includes finding it for yourself or someone else. Occupations themselves may involve animals, health, or the use of sharp instruments or heavy machinery.
What you have to watch out for is working when irritated or angry, for injury or damage can be incurred, or poor relationships with co-workers could ensue, resulting in bad working atmospheres. Also guard against your emotional desires getting awkwardly mixed up with your work and whom you work with. Get my Soul Scope Report
Jupiter in the 6th House
These qualities of faith and understanding become critical issues with regard to health and work. Generally speaking, you are an enthusiastic worker and have a sound constitution to match. You may also be actively involved in healthcare or improving work methods and conditions in the manner of your Jupiter Sign.
What you have to watch out for mainly is overworking or being overly concerned about getting it right - for this in itself can lead to health trouble. Nevertheless, your recovery rate is good, probably through mind-over-matter methods. Get my Soul Scope Report
Saturn in the 6th House
These lessons and tests, and the authority that they can earn, are most likely to manifest themselves in your working life, in relating to co-workers, or in matters regarding health. Put the other way around, you do work very hard at learning these lessons, fulfilling your duties and maintaining health.
All this can make life a bit of a drudge though, or work itself could be hard to come by or get down to - and your health could suffer as a result. One could say that you are either a slave driver or slave-driven. The real necessity here is that of establishing 'who' (or 'what') you're really working for and of formulating a healthy life-style.

Uranus in the 6th House
Freedom is an issue for you where your working life is concerned. You are not keen on a rigid routine, so flexi-hours or self-employment are desirable, if not downright essential. Sharp ups and downs, along with interminable changes of fortune in the work sphere would indicate that job security is going to have to take second place to job satisfaction. There is, or should be, something inventive or highly original about your work.
Similarly, unpredictable health - especially intermittent or odd complaints - would point to your being a round peg in a square hole, or that a change of work environment or lifestyle was called for. Further regarding health, you can successfully diagnose the cause of complaints - in yourself or others - by spotting the symbolism involved. For example, trouble with the pancreas, which regulates blood sugar, would suggest that one is bitter or sour about something, that life has lost its sweetness. Get my Soul Scope Report
Neptune in the 6th House
You have a sensitive constitution; simply because you are rather subtly attuned to the nature of what actually constitutes health. On the one hand this means that you're inclined to contract strange complaints which are hard to diagnose and which are probably best treated with subtle forms of medicine such as homeopathy, acupuncture, Bach flower remedies and envisaging techniques.
On the other hand, or as a consequence of this, you yourself are involved in healthcare - and possibly, but not necessarily, using one of these complimentary methods. Work too, can be a sensitive issue. If your job does not agree with you, it's because you do not or cannot perform it with a sense of service or devotion.
If this is the case, involve yourself with an occupation that inspires you in some way. On another level you could be inclined to escape into your work because that seems to be a way of avoiding sticky emotional issues - but this could lead to health problems as such stifled feelings making themselves felt physically.

Pluto in the 6th House
Your call to transformation and your sense of power and destiny is encountered via your work and health. This means that any changes that are necessary in the way you live will show themselves in the state of your body or in your work situation. Putting work and health together, healing and psychology could well be the nature of your actual career.
By the same token, you can be obsessive with regard to health and healthy living. Equally, or additionally, you are very thorough in dealing with any kind of physical disturbance. It's also likely that you subscribe to the theory that all diseases originate in the mind and indeed, as if to prove it, your own body readily shows up any psychological or emotional problems. At its most extreme, a major illness or physical damage can be the event that alters the course of your life.
You are, or come to be, a great believer in thoughts being powerful and existing in their own right. A negative thought will insidiously breed an unwelcome happening. A positive thought would be the new broom that sweeps clean. Similarly, you're able to solve problems at a profound, deep level for yourself and for others. Because of this, people automatically open up in your presence - like it or not. Get my Soul Scope Report
