Introduction

 

 

"There are stars whose radiance is visible on earth though they have long been extinct. There are people whose brilliance continues to light the world though they are no longer among the living. These lights are particularly bright when the night is dark."  -- Hannah Senesh

 

This report has been written to introduce you to the concepts of astrology and how to get started with a child's natal chart. Astrology is a complex and meaningful science which takes years to study and apply successfully; however, we would like to whet your appetite with this report, and encourage you to deepen your understanding through other means.

 

Astrology is a study of the connection between planets and life on Earth. It is based on a concept that energy patterns form between other planets and Earth and that these energies affect our lives as individuals and communities.

 

An astrological chart, also known as a horoscope, natal chart, or birth chart, records the relationship between the planets and the signs of the Zodiac. Charts can be calculated for the birth of a person, a community, an event or anything that seems momentous. The horoscope is as individual and unique as a fingerprint.

 

The aim of this report is to act as a guide for parents and mentors of children. All parents want the best for their children. We want our children to live happy and fulfilled lives. All mentors and teachers would like to see children reach their full potential. This can be achieved by recognising and accepting each child's individual gifts and weaknesses. In accepting these traits, we can help our children overcome obstacles and provide them with as many opportunities as possible to develop their talents.

 

The journey from babyhood to adulthood is full of joys and challenges. This report is intended to help parents and mentors to support and encourage their children through the difficult times and to provide them with as much love and joy as possible. Then childhood can become a true foundation for a rewarding and joyful adult life. Both children and their parents can be satisfied with a strong and healthy emotional bond, happy memories and many possibilities for future success.

 

When using these interpretations, please bear in mind that, inevitably, every chart will contain some contradictory influences and, as a result, certain interpretations of different items in the same chart may seem difficult to reconcile. However, this may still be an accurate reflection of a child's chart, as it is likely that any child will experience conflicting desires, events and circumstances in their life. Usually it is the responsibility of an astrologer to synthesise these apparent contradictions in order to present a cohesive and meaningful interpretation of the dilemmas of the chart. Any advice given is meant to be an aid and the author and publisher accept no liability for any adverse effects of this report.


Family and Friends

 

 

"Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength while loving someone deeply gives you courage."

-- Lao Tso

 

The Moon

The Moon tells you about your children's emotional nature and basic needs. It is also the key to how they experience intimacy in relationships. The Moon tells you about your children's relationship with their mother, how they experience their mother's nurturing. As a result it can also give you insights on how to best nurture your children as babies and maturing young adults. When a child feels safe and has their basic needs met, they are better able to achieve their goals later in life.

 

The Moon is in Pisces

Believe it or not young  was extremely happy in his mother's womb. The birth process came as a rude shock, thrusting  out of his comfortable, warm and watery environment. Therefore baby  needs lots of cuddles and tender loving care. Soft-coloured furnishings and a quiet environment, close to mother, are ideal. Parents may like to invest in a baby sling so that  can be kept close.

 

 is a highly sensitive baby and needs longer than other babies to adjust to their new world. This sensitivity may also extend to foods, so parents need to be wary when introducing solid foods. Baby  may want to breast feed longer than other children.  is also a highly emotional child, who benefits from a harmonious home environment and kind and loving friends. He may enjoy quiet time with mother reading fantasy or light-hearted books.  is soothed by trips to the swimming pool, beach, nature parks or theatre. This helps feed 's active imagination. Parents may need to help  overcome imaginary fears and may be introduced to an imaginary friend. Pets can provide a source of comfort for young ; however, these pets need to be calm and gentle rather than boisterous. An aquarium may have a soothing effect.

 

There may be some tears when it comes to leaving parents for school. It is important that parents do all that they can to ensure a smooth and gentle transition into the school environment. If possible the school selected also needs to have less emphasis on discipline and more of an emphasis on creativity. As  grows older creative pursuits provide a much-needed outlet for his strong feelings and imagination.

 

The Moon is in the 12th House

A sea of emotions surrounds 's birth. 's mother is greatly moved by the birth of baby . It is possible that she feels a little overwhelmed by the responsibilities of looking after such a precious baby. As a result, either an intense bond is formed with  feeling at one with his mother; or 's mother takes a back seat letting another woman take over the mothering duties. Whatever the circumstances, baby  is born into an emotional family scenario and is likely to cling to a mother figure. It may be difficult for any other adult who tries to come between  and his mother figure. This is not a rational, logical process that has developed, but rather a deep, instinctual one. Obviously the intensity of this bond cannot be maintained as  grows as a separate individual.

 

The path to selfhood needs to be encouraged, but may take longer than expected. At some stage in his young life  needs to learn the self-esteem to face the world on his own. Although he may experience a sense of loss whenever separated from his mother, he can also learn the satisfaction of drawing on his own resources. This is a child who enjoys escaping into a fantasy world, perhaps struggling with practical daily tasks. Depending on other aspects of his birth chart  may be a little shy. A caring and loving child,  needs to be convinced by his mother to believe in himself. This little birdie needs to be gently encouraged to leave the nest. Although the process may take a bit longer than with other children,  soon learns to fly. The sign of 's Moon may also give some clues as to the extent of 's dependency on his mother. A child with a Moon in Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, Libra, Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn may be more dependent than a child with a Moon in Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Gemini or Aquarius.

 

Venus

The planet Venus describes your children's personal relationships with family and friends. Like a Moon, Venus is important in describing how your child prefers to interact. This planet also gives vital information about your child's receptivity to love. This is important because a child feels loved in different ways. Some children feel cherished when loved ones are paying them lots of attention, whereas others feel most loved when given the freedom to go their separate ways. Therefore gaining an understanding of the planet Venus in your child's chart can give you insights into how to encourage rewarding relationships with family and friends.

 

Venus is in Leo

 is a little ray of sunshine. His warm and generous spirit has a way of brightening the lives of his family members and friends.  has a knack for helping those close to him feel special. Of course, he also needs to feel important.  likes to have the attention of those closest to him. He has quite a few creative tricks guaranteed to capture loved ones' interest. While parents need to encourage 's natural flair for being on centre stage, they also need to discourage any bossiness or excessive attention-getting shenanigans. Better yet, parents could direct his high jinks into more creative activities. As a young child,  enjoys playing with his friends. He is easily enticed into playing games and enjoying fun-filled activities with friends and family.

 

The extent to which  is extroverted depends on other aspects of his birth chart. Perhaps  is kind hearted and full of fun around only around family members and a few loyal friends. On the other hand he may be much more extroverted, showering many people with affection and love. Humour and flair also play a strong role in 's life. He is likely to display a special talent at some stage during his childhood. Parents need only to remain open to the many possibilities. A lot depends on the other planets and signs in 's birth chart. However, talents could include acting, dancing, creative design, interior design, art, graphic design, and writing. Whatever  pursues, he pursues it ardently.

 

Venus is in the 5th House

 is a light-hearted and fun-loving child, who enjoys interacting with other children and family members. Family and friends enjoy 's company. There is no shortage of people wanting to take little  on outings.  particularly enjoys any activity linked with beauty or art such as being able to dress up in beautiful clothes or going out to a colourful theatre performance. He may have a talent for music, art, dance, theatre or an artistic craft. This depends on the sign of Venus. A child with Venus in the signs of Leo, Pisces, Libra or Taurus is more likely to have an artistic bent. A child with Venus in the other signs of the zodiac is more likely to express this creative streak in a different manner.

 

 enjoys playing games and having fun, perhaps avoiding taking part in his share of the daily chores. Little  is either too busy entertaining himself or too focused on his own creative projects to respond to other people's demands. Although  likes to play with other children, he is not so keen to share his belongings. He prefers to make the most of his friend's resources rather than share his own. Parents need to teach young  the benefits of sharing. However, this is a minor point. On the whole,  is an easy-going child with a penchant for having the finer things in life.


Talents and Schooling

 

 

"Dance like no one is watching. Sing like no one is listening. Love like you've never been hurt and live like it's heaven on Earth."  -- Mark Twain

 

The Sun

The Sun represents your child's identity. It describes your child's basic personality traits and their talents. It also tells you how your children think of themselves; how they need to express themselves; how they need to shine in their lives; how they feel alive. It is the centre of a child's self-expression. The Sun can also tell us about a child's father.

 

The Sun is in Virgo

Young  is a serious and friendly child, not prone to extroverted outbursts. Rather he enjoys an ordered world with family, friends and activities all taking their right place. The sign of Virgo is an Earth sign, and all earth children enjoy a routine. Baby  is no exception, preferring a regular and predictable rhythm to each day's schedule and food plan. Upheavals in the daily schedule may result in restless and fretful moments for young . This continues to be true throughout 's life. As he grows older, parents will be pleasantly surprised by 's ability to tidy his own room and organise chores and schoolwork. This, of course, does depend on other aspects of 's birth chart. However, it is likely that  enjoys a clean and hygienic home environment, and is willing to take part in practical daily chores from a young age. His talents are in organisation, and she excels at any practical task that requires concentration and attention to detail. He is also likely to be highly intelligent, having both the ability to concentrate and research ideas. For this reason he shines at school, where structure, schedules and intelligence are such a vital ingredient of success.

 

The Sun is in the 6th House

Some children are born with the ability to handle the practical side of life. They seem to shoulder responsibility from a young age and thrive on hard work.  is such a child. He enjoys having a purpose and being involved in activities that reflect his purpose. He loves to take part in the business of running a family, happy to do his share of the daily chores. It is enough for him to know that he is an important part of the family. For this reason parents and other mentors can encourage and teach young  to help with cooking, cleaning, gardening and other maintenance jobs. As  grows he happily attends school tackling schoolwork and homework with relish. Problems may only arise because  is keen to get into the workforce in order to show his skills and belong to the working community.

 

 has a real talent for organisation. This does depend to a certain extent on the sign of 's Sun. A child with the Sun in Aquarius, Gemini, Libra or Pisces may be less organised and practical than a child with the Sun in the other signs. Regardless of the Sun sign,  responds well to a routine whether it be self-applied or established by those around him. In particular, regular meals are important for  as a baby and a young child. A healthy diet and regular exercise are key ingredients in helping young  lead a balanced life. A natural hard worker,  needs to be encouraged to incorporate recreation into his hectic schedule. Habits established early in life set a foundation for adulthood.

 

Mercury

The planet Mercury describes your children's intellectual abilities. The sign and placement of Mercury can describe whether or not your child finds it easy to concentrate at school. Your child may be a daydreamer or have great concentration. Your child may be shy or interact easily with other people. Either way it is possible to boost your child's self-esteem by choosing study methods and schooling that suits their needs rather than forcing them to fit into an alien environment. Gaining an understanding of the planet Mercury can help in these matters.

 

Mercury is in Leo

"Learning is meant to be fun" is a commonly expressed maxim and is particularly true for . Young , more than other children, learns much more when educated in a fun and light-hearted manner. This is an important approach for parents and mentors to remember, whether it be teaching  to crawl, walk and talk in early childhood or more complex schooling later.  responds best to play, praise and encouragement. Any criticism or parental pressure is likely to quickly squash 's natural enthusiasm for learning. When permitted to develop at his own pace,  is able to learn new skills easily, perhaps even topping his class at school or in his chosen activities. He has a creative mind, with plenty of ideas and opinions to be expressed. However, parents and mentors see a completely different side to  if he feels forced to achieve beyond his own limits or to conform to other people's expectations. Under stress,  either becomes introverted and shy or becomes the class clown, depending on other factors of his birth chart. Both types of behaviour are an attempt to hide his lack of self-confidence.  needs to be encouraged to speak his mind, debate opinions with other people and appreciate his own worth. He may benefit from, or have a talent for, creative writing, drawing, painting or the dramatic arts.

 

Mercury is in the 5th House

 has a quick wit. As a young child this becomes obvious, as  loves to play word games, giggling with delight over certain word associations. As he matures his wit blossoms. Friends and relatives enjoy this side of 's nature, but teachers may not be so impressed as lessons are likely to be disrupted by 's clownish antics. This does depend on the rest of 's birth chart. He may have a more serious side to his nature that balances this impish trait. 's love of words needs to be directed in positive outlets such as reading and creative writing. He may have a real talent for creative writing or for public speaking, but only if it is fun.

 

 finds it difficult to concentrate on anything that he considers being boring.  enjoys reading, but mostly for fun. Concentrated study is not so appealing. He also enjoys puzzles and games, particularly games of strategy and wordplay. The challenge for parents and mentors is to maintain an element of entertainment in all lessons. For this reasons  benefits from a less formal school environment. Teachers and parents can also note that a sense of humour is a handy tool in diffusing many an emotional moment with young .


Goals

 

 

"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."  -- Eleanor Roosevelt

 

The Ascendant

The Ascendant, or Rising Sign as it's sometimes called, is considered to be an important component of an astrology chart. Ancient astrologers believed that the Ascendant depicted a person's primary motivation. Some believed that it was one of the links to discovering what makes a person happy. It could be said that when we're accomplishing our primary motivation then we're happy. By gaining knowledge of a child's Ascendant and discovering this child's primary motivation in life, parents and mentors can then help them achieve their goals. Caring adults can encourage the child with love and support. In turn your child experiences a sense of happiness and fulfilment.

 

The Ascendant is in Aries

 is likely to actively seek his purpose in life, taking the initiative rather than waiting until circumstances are comfortable. Aries is a Cardinal sign denoting enterprise, enthusiasm, self-assertion and initiative. It is also a Fire sign depicting a need for action. Therefore as a young child  is likely to be a leader in the playground, enjoying the challenge of the first day at childcare, kindergarten or school.

 

 is frank, pioneering, headstrong and self-reliant. He revels in anything that enables him to take the initiative and rails against restrictions placed by authority figures. Therefore adults in 's life need to give him the freedom to explore. This child's primary motivation is leadership and enterprise.  avoids following other people's directions in preference to learning by his own experience. Therefore any adult who tackles  head on is in for a battle of wills! Diplomacy may be the best approach.  likes to be first, enjoying challenges. There may be a trail of toys and activities left in 's wake as he moves on to something new. Any adult in 's life needs to be on their toes, ready to keep up with the abundant energy of this young child. Even as a baby  prefers the stimulation of different environments and experiences. Parents don't have to establish a routine for this baby. (This, of course, depends on other aspects of 's birth chart). Mentors also need to teach  safe limits. This is a child who will climb a tree, fall and hit their head, scream loudly and then want to climb another tree.

 

Social interaction may be an area of difficulty for  as a young child. It is possible that  shines as a leader of his young peers, but it is also possible that he will be left on his own. If the latter is the case then 's parents would do well to encourage a single, close friendship with one other child rather than try to push  into groups of children. This is a child who places independence at the top of his list of priorities.

 

Mars

Ambition and drive, like many traits, can be powerful positive forces in your children═s lives, helping them achieve their dreams. Too much ambition can hinder your child═s ability to collaborate. On the other hand, without motivation your child may not be able to establish a healthy sense of self and successfully leave home and family. Studying Mars, the planet of drive and energy, assists parents and mentors. Mars describes vitality in your child═s birth chart. If our children are free to pursue their own dreams and ambitions, their joie de vivre is a wonderful thing to see. By understanding the placement of Mars in your child═s chart, you can help support their goals. You gain insight into whether or not your child lacks motivation in certain areas and why. You can also see if your child has an excess of passion. As a result you can either patiently try to motivate your child, or you can provide plenty of stimulation and direction.

 

Mars is in Taurus

 is a quiet achiever. Mars is not strong in the sign of Taurus and therefore young  starts life a little slowly with possibly some setback in infancy. He learns to crawl and walk after his playmates. He finds leaving the safety and comfort of home a bit threatening. Therefore kindergarten, pre-school and school can be a bit daunting. Parents need not be concerned.

 

As  matures he develops the determination of a young bull and learns how to achieve his goals. He just needs a little encouragement along the way to leave his comforts. If, as a young child,  appears to be lacking in motivation, later parents and mentors discover that he is simply waiting for the right activity or direction before wasting precious time and energy. He tackles any task slowly and surely. He has plenty of drive for achieving his own objectives, but stubbornly refuses to tackle activities that lack interest. He also prefers to move at his own pace and is not going to be hurried along by anyone else.

 

 is loyal and steadfast and wise. He enjoys nature and may benefit from having his own little garden plot. He also enjoys anything that appeals to the senses. Beauty, music, the arts, fashion, design and other such aesthetic areas all hold a special allure. He may also have a special talent in one of these areas, which needs encouragement. Otherwise 's need for security may hinder the development of this talent.

 

Mars is in the 2nd House

 has a strong drive for security. As a young child he enjoys owning an abundance of toys and games, but he may have difficulty sharing these with other children. He may form a strong attachment to one toy or possession. Parents and mentors need to allow  to keep one or two favourite possessions for himself while encouraging him to share other toys. As  matures he benefits from earning pocket money and being permitted to manage his own funds. Parents and mentors may be surprised by young ═s ability to accumulate and save money. He is a real little bargain hunter! He is quite enterprising in developing schemes to earn money or grow savings. This child is a whiz on the Monopoly Č board. On the other hand  also keenly feels any loss of money or possessions. Whereas other children may not be concerned about wealth,  is acutely aware of his family═s social status. Parents and mentors need to support ═s motivation for material goods, but also to teach him about things that don═t have a price tag attached such as sharing intimate moments with loved ones or enjoying outings in nature. This child really benefits from lessons about the importance of giving as well as taking. As a result he develops an ability to pursue sound moral values, while also enjoying material riches. The latter does of course depend on other aspects of ═s birth chart.


Childhood Journey

 

 

"Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm."  -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Wouldn't it be ideal if we could isolate one trait in our personalities, capture it in a glass for observation and dissection? Of course this is not possible. Neither is it possible for us to isolate one part of a birth chart. The different aspects of our children's birth charts intermingle in a complex manner to make the little person that we know and love. However, it is possible for us to influence the development of our children, to support them in their journey. The aim of this section is to give vital clues for parents and mentors on how to guide, but not coerce, the development of your child.

 

Saturn is Square The Moon

 needs lots of love and affection. He is a sensitive child, seemingly fated to struggle with at least one adversity in his young life. This could start when  is a baby. Perhaps he is born during a difficult time for either his mother or father, resulting in a lack of parental support. While this is understandable it is also emotionally painful for young . On the other hand it is possible that  is a fretful baby, failing to thrive for a short period of time. Another possibility is that  sails through babyhood, but as a young child the family suffers a setback that has a serious effect on young . While this may be of some concern to parents, most challenges in life have a positive outcome. Whatever the challenging circumstances, young  initially may feel insecure in his little world, despite the best parental intentions. Much of this depends on other influences in 's birth chart.

 

With other positive influences,  may be quietly confident and somewhat serious. Either way a firm and loving hand and a warm environment can help  overcome adversity and consequently feel secure and gain confidence. Criticism is to be avoided at all costs, because  is more sensitive to harsh words than other children. Instead, parents need to do all that they can to boost 's self-esteem so that he can mature into a confident adult. As  matures, he overcomes adversity. He learns the advantages of hard work and self-discipline. The positive side to early-life difficulties is that  has the wisdom of experience, and outstrips other children in his achievements. This combination of the planet Saturn and the Moon is an important one in astrology. In some cases, it simply acts to tone down other influences in a child's birth chart. For instance, a fiery child may seem more introverted under this influence. For a full explanation of the likely outcome of this combination it is best to visit a qualified astrologer.

 

Neptune is Sesquisquare The Moon

 is a soft, imaginative and sensitive child. He needs gentle handling and a calm environment in order to thrive. Baby  benefits from a peaceful and quiet home. If  has noisy siblings, then he benefits from his own quiet room somewhere, to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life. This child is prone to moodiness and is sensitive to the emotional undercurrents of his household. As a result  may enjoy pursuing an absorbing hobby, a creative pursuit, visiting nature, or escaping into the realm of books or movies.

 

Music could be soothing at moments when  seems like a troubled child. In fact lullabies are likely to be the best method of getting baby  off to sleep and continue to sooth  throughout his life.  is particularly sensitive to the influence of one woman. This could be mother or grandmother, or a favourite aunt, teacher, nanny or caregiver. This woman is likely to be idealised by  and may have difficulty living up to his expectations. As a result  may be disillusioned and have trouble facing the realities of personal relationships. On the other hand this woman could also positively influence young , teaching him in a gentle and loving manner, helping him reach his true potential. In babyhood and childhood  needs tender care, particularly by the women in his life.

 

Pluto is Conjunct The Sun

 is a powerful child, challenging himself and those who love him to stand up and take notice of life's abundance. He is curious and keen to explore new territory. If extroverted then young  is likely to end up in trouble as a result of his curiosity and resulting adventures into the outside world. He is a real character, a regular Tom Sawyer or Pippi Longstocking. However, a more introverted child may simply enjoy spending time on his own studying the inner workings of toys, nature and/or household equipment.

 

From the moment of birth 's father plays a pivotal role in his life. His childhood relationship with father, or a strong father figure, determines the extent to which he feels able to carve his own niche later in life.  is likely to adore his father as a young child. As the patriarch of the family he earns respect of those surrounding him. A growing child keenly notices this. However, there may be a time when this adoration is transformed by a sense of betrayal. This is not necessarily within father's control. No-one can live up to God-like expectations. However, he can make sure that  feels supported as much as possible.

 

Both  and his father have strong personalities and therefore they clash, each determined to express their own views or have their own way. It is important that 's father shows self-restraint, otherwise these clashes could become violent. He needs to ensure that young  is kept safe, away from emotional, verbal and physical abuse. In other words 's father needs to provide a safe environment in which he and  can both assert their own wills and gain greater understanding of themselves and each other. If this is not achieved then young  loses a sense of his own identity and cowers in the face of adversity. He eventually rebels, probably in his teenage years. However, if 's father can allow him the freedom to develop his own powerful personality then young  is likely to develop great personal power, the ability to lead others and to achieve his own goals.

 

The theme of death can also play an important role under this influence. Young  is both more sensitive to the grief process and also more able to grow in strength through this process, be it the death of a family member or the death of a pet.

 

Saturn is Trine Mercury

Now here's a child who needs a lot of approval and support, particularly from his father or an important male mentor. The more love and kindness that  receives, the more he is able to express himself in his daily life with confidence. The reason for this is that the combination of the planets Saturn and Mercury can be a difficult one, presenting some pitfalls in early childhood development. In other words young  may face difficulties in his ability to learn and communicate. This, in turn, affects his self-confidence.

 

 may be shy, preferring the safety of his home rather than venturing out and about.  could be slow to talk and read. Perhaps school seems a bit overwhelming to young . He prefers to spend time reading in his own room rather than socialising with his friends.  is sensitive to criticism, particularly any harsh words from his father or a prominent male member of the family. On the other hand  slowly blossoms when praised by his father. He also responds well to a male mentor's patient words of wisdom.  needs a slow, methodical approach when being given any instructions. He works better within a structured environment. With calm handling  gradually gains self-understanding and a wisdom that is beyond his years. Another positive note that is most of 's learning difficulties are experienced in his early youth. As he matures, social and communication skills and study becomes easier.

It is interesting to note that the famous scientist Albert Einstein experienced learning difficulties at school, and yet later rose to prominence in his field. Einstein had a powerful combination (conjunction) of the planets Saturn and Mercury in his birth chart. The strength of this association depends on the nature of the astrological link. Parents may wish to consult an astrologer.

Conclusion

 

 

ţWhen I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years.ţ -- Mark Twain ˝Bringing Up Fatherţ

 

This report has been written from a child═s point of view with the aim of helping parents and mentors better understand their youngsters. Of course, each person is ultimately responsible for their own actions, but the support that children get early in life goes a long way to helping them live rich and rewarding adult lives. Children need to be given the freedom to be their true selves rather than being forced to live up to parental expectations or to fulfill parents═ own personal journeys. They need their parents to live their own lives to the full, joyously and responsibly. Above all children need love and support. What great gifts and what a challenging role for parents! It is the author═s hope that this report may help in the process of childhood development, supporting both child and parent. My own father often quoted the above saying by Mark Twain. So I thought that I would share it in this report. My mother gave me many of the aforementioned gifts. I hope that these have shone through in the writing of this report.
