Introduction

 

 

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

 

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

 

Astrology is a study of the connectionbetween planets and life on Earth. It is based on a concept that energypatterns form between other planets and Earth and that these energies affectour lives as individuals and communities.

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

When using these interpretations, pleasebear in mind that, inevitably, every chart will contain some contradictoryinfluences and, as a result, certain interpretations of different items in thesame chart may seem difficult to reconcile. However, this may still be anaccurate reflection of a child's chart, as it is likely that any child willexperience conflicting desires, events and circumstances in their life. Usuallyit is the responsibility of an astrologer to synthesise these apparentcontradictions in order to present a cohesive and meaningful interpretation ofthe dilemmas of the chart. Any advice given is meant to be an aid and theauthor and publisher accept no liability for any adverse effects of thisreport.

Family and Friends

 

 

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

-- Lao Tso

 

The Moon

The Moon tells you about your children'semotional nature and basic needs. It is also the key to how they experienceintimacy in relationships. The Moon tells you about your children'srelationship 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 childrenas babies and maturing young adults. When a child feels safe and has theirbasic 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'swomb. The birth process came as a rude shock, thrusting  out of his comfortable, warm and wateryenvironment. Therefore baby  needslots of cuddles and tender loving care. Soft-coloured furnishings and a quietenvironment, close to mother, are ideal. Parents may like to invest in a babysling so that  can be kept close.

 

 is a highly sensitive baby and needs longer than other babiesto adjust to their new world. This sensitivity may also extend to foods, soparents need to be wary when introducing solid foods. Baby  may want to breast feed longer thanother children.  is also a highlyemotional child, who benefits from a harmonious home environment and kind andloving friends. He may enjoy quiet time with mother reading fantasy orlight-hearted books.  is soothed bytrips to the swimming pool, beach, nature parks or theatre. This helps feed 'sactive imagination. Parents may need to help  overcome imaginary fears and may be introduced to an imaginaryfriend. Pets can provide a source of comfort for young ; however, these petsneed to be calm and gentle rather than boisterous. An aquarium may have asoothing effect.

 

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

 

The Moon is in the 12thHouse

A sea of emotions surrounds 's birth. 'smother is greatly moved by the birth of baby . It is possible that she feels alittle overwhelmed by the responsibilities of looking after such a preciousbaby. As a result, either an intense bond is formed with  feeling at one with his mother; or 'smother 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 amother figure. It may be difficult for any other adult who tries to comebetween  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 maintainedas  grows as a separate individual.

 

The path to selfhood needs to beencouraged, but may take longer than expected. At some stage in his younglife  needs to learn theself-esteem to face the world on his own. Although he may experience a sense ofloss whenever separated from his mother, he can also learn the satisfaction ofdrawing on his own resources. This is a child who enjoys escaping into afantasy world, perhaps struggling with practical daily tasks. Depending onother aspects of his birth chart may be a little shy. A caring and loving child,  needs to be convinced by his mother tobelieve in himself. This little birdie needs to be gently encouraged to leavethe nest. Although the process may take a bit longer than with otherchildren,  soon learns to fly. Thesign of 's Moon may also give some clues as to the extent of 's dependency onhis 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'spersonal relationships with family and friends. Like a Moon, Venus is importantin describing how your child prefers to interact. This planet also gives vitalinformation about your child's receptivity to love. This is important because achild feels loved in different ways. Some children feel cherished when lovedones are paying them lots of attention, whereas others feel most loved whengiven the freedom to go their separate ways. Therefore gaining an understandingof the planet Venus in your child's chart can give you insights into how toencourage rewarding relationships with family and friends.

 

Venus is in Leo

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

 

The extent to which  is extroverted depends on other aspectsof his birth chart. Perhaps  iskind hearted and full of fun around only around family members and a few loyalfriends. On the other hand he may be much more extroverted, showering manypeople with affection and love. Humour and flair also play a strong role in 'slife. He is likely to display a special talent at some stage during hischildhood. Parents need only to remain open to the many possibilities. A lotdepends on the other planets and signs in 's birth chart. However, talentscould include acting, dancing, creative design, interior design, art, graphicdesign, and writing. Whatever pursues, he pursues it ardently.

 

Venus is in the 5th House

 is a light-hearted and fun-loving child, who enjoysinteracting with other children and family members. Family and friends enjoy 'scompany. There is no shortage of people wanting to take little  on outings.  particularly enjoys any activity linked with beauty or artsuch as being able to dress up in beautiful clothes or going out to a colourfultheatre performance. He may have a talent for music, art, dance, theatre or anartistic craft. This depends on the sign of Venus. A child with Venus in thesigns 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 expressthis creative streak in a different manner.

 

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

Talents and Schooling

 

 

"Dance like no one is watching. Singlike no one is listening. Love like you've never been hurt and live like it'sheaven on Earth."  -- MarkTwain

 

The Sun

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

 

The Sun is in Virgo

Young  is a serious and friendly child, not prone to extrovertedoutbursts. Rather he enjoys an ordered world with family, friends andactivities 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 rhythmto each day's schedule and food plan. Upheavals in the daily schedule mayresult in restless and fretful moments for young . This continues to be truethroughout '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, ofcourse, does depend on other aspects of 's birth chart. However, it is likelythat  enjoys a clean and hygienichome environment, and is willing to take part in practical daily chores from ayoung age. His talents are in organisation, and she excels at any practicaltask that requires concentration and attention to detail. He is also likely tobe highly intelligent, having both the ability to concentrate and researchideas. For this reason he shines at school, where structure, schedules andintelligence are such a vital ingredient of success.

 

The Sun is in the 6th House

Some children are born with the ability tohandle the practical side of life. They seem to shoulder responsibility from ayoung age and thrive on hard work. is such a child. He enjoys having a purpose and being involved inactivities that reflect his purpose. He loves to take part in the business ofrunning a family, happy to do his share of the daily chores. It is enough forhim to know that he is an important part of the family. For this reason parentsand other mentors can encourage and teach young  to help with cooking, cleaning, gardening and other maintenancejobs. As  grows he happily attendsschool tackling schoolwork and homework with relish. Problems may only arisebecause  is keen to get into theworkforce in order to show his skills and belong to the working community.

 

 has a real talent for organisation. This does depend to acertain 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 Sunin the other signs. Regardless of the Sun sign,  responds well to a routine whether it be self-applied orestablished by those around him. In particular, regular meals are importantfor  as a baby and a young child. Ahealthy diet and regular exercise are key ingredients in helping young  lead a balanced life. A natural hardworker,  needs to be encouraged toincorporate recreation into his hectic schedule. Habits established early inlife set a foundation for adulthood.

 

Mercury

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

 

Mercury is in Leo

"Learning is meant to be fun" isa commonly expressed maxim and is particularly true for . Young , more thanother children, learns much more when educated in a fun and light-heartedmanner. 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 andencouragement. Any criticism or parental pressure is likely to quickly squash's natural enthusiasm for learning. When permitted to develop at his ownpace,  is able to learn new skillseasily, 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 beyondhis own limits or to conform to other people's expectations. Under stress,  either becomes introverted and shy orbecomes the class clown, depending on other factors of his birth chart. Bothtypes of behaviour are an attempt to hide his lack of self-confidence.  needs to be encouraged to speak hismind, debate opinions with other people and appreciate his own worth. He maybenefit from, or have a talent for, creative writing, drawing, painting or thedramatic 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 soimpressed as lessons are likely to be disrupted by 's clownish antics. Thisdoes depend on the rest of 's birth chart. He may have a more serious side tohis nature that balances this impish trait. 's love of words needs to bedirected in positive outlets such as reading and creative writing. He may havea real talent for creative writing or for public speaking, but only if it isfun.

 

 finds it difficult to concentrate on anything that heconsiders being boring.  enjoysreading, but mostly for fun. Concentrated study is not so appealing. He alsoenjoys puzzles and games, particularly games of strategy and wordplay. Thechallenge for parents and mentors is to maintain an element of entertainment inall lessons. For this reasons benefits from a less formal school environment. Teachers and parents canalso note that a sense of humour is a handy tool in diffusing many an emotionalmoment with young .

Goals

 

 

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

 

The Ascendant

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

 

The Ascendant is in Aries

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

 

 is frank, pioneering, headstrong and self-reliant. He revelsin anything that enables him to take the initiative and rails againstrestrictions placed by authority figures. Therefore adults in 's life need togive him the freedom to explore. This child's primary motivation is leadershipand enterprise.  avoids followingother 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 tosomething new. Any adult in 's life needs to be on their toes, ready to keep upwith the abundant energy of this young child. Even as a baby  prefers the stimulation of differentenvironments and experiences. Parents don't have to establish a routine forthis baby. (This, of course, depends on other aspects of 's birth chart).Mentors also need to teach  safelimits. This is a child who will climb a tree, fall and hit their head, screamloudly and then want to climb another tree.

 

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

 

Mars

Ambition and drive, like many traits, canbe powerful positive forces in your children═s lives, helping them achievetheir 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 ahealthy sense of self and successfully leave home and family. Studying Mars,the planet of drive and energy, assists parents and mentors. Mars describesvitality in your child═s birth chart. If our children are free to pursue theirown dreams and ambitions, their joie de vivre is a wonderful thing to see. Byunderstanding the placement of Mars in your child═s chart, you can help supporttheir goals. You gain insight into whether or not your child lacks motivationin certain areas and why. You can also see if your child has an excess ofpassion. As a result you can either patiently try to motivate your child, oryou can provide plenty of stimulation and direction.

 

Mars is in Taurus

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

 

As matures he develops the determination of a young bull and learns how toachieve his goals. He just needs a little encouragement along the way to leavehis comforts. If, as a young child, appears to be lacking in motivation, later parents and mentors discoverthat he is simply waiting for the right activity or direction before wastingprecious time and energy. He tackles any task slowly and surely. He has plentyof drive for achieving his own objectives, but stubbornly refuses to tackleactivities that lack interest. He also prefers to move at his own pace and isnot going to be hurried along by anyone else.

 

 is loyal and steadfast and wise. He enjoys nature and maybenefit from having his own little garden plot. He also enjoys anything thatappeals to the senses. Beauty, music, the arts, fashion, design and other suchaesthetic areas all hold a special allure. He may also have a special talent inone of these areas, which needs encouragement. Otherwise 's need for securitymay hinder the development of this talent.

 

Mars is in the 2nd House

 has a strong drive for security. As a young child he enjoysowning an abundance of toys and games, but he may have difficulty sharing thesewith 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 encouraginghim to share other toys. As matures he benefits from earning pocket money and being permitted tomanage his own funds. Parents and mentors may be surprised by young ═s abilityto accumulate and save money. He is a real little bargain hunter! He is quiteenterprising in developing schemes to earn money or grow savings. This child isa whiz on the Monopoly Č board. On the other hand  also keenly feels any loss of money or possessions. Whereasother children may not be concerned about wealth,  is acutely aware of his family═s social status. Parents andmentors need to support ═s motivation for material goods, but also to teach himabout things that don═t have a price tag attached such as sharing intimatemoments with loved ones or enjoying outings in nature. This child reallybenefits from lessons about the importance of giving as well as taking. As aresult he develops an ability to pursue sound moral values, while also enjoyingmaterial riches. The latter does of course depend on other aspects of ═s birthchart.

Childhood Journey

 

 

"Nothing great was ever achievedwithout enthusiasm."  -- RalphWaldo Emerson

 

Wouldn't it be ideal if we could isolateone trait in our personalities, capture it in a glass for observation anddissection? Of course this is not possible. Neither is it possible for us toisolate one part of a birth chart. The different aspects of our children'sbirth charts intermingle in a complex manner to make the little person that weknow and love. However, it is possible for us to influence the development ofour children, to support them in their journey. The aim of this section is togive vital clues for parents and mentors on how to guide, but not coerce, thedevelopment 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. Thiscould 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 isalso emotionally painful for young . On the other hand it is possible that  is a fretful baby, failing to thrivefor a short period of time. Another possibility is that  sails through babyhood, but as a youngchild the family suffers a setback that has a serious effect on young . Whilethis may be of some concern to parents, most challenges in life have a positiveoutcome. Whatever the challenging circumstances, young  initially may feel insecure in hislittle world, despite the best parental intentions. Much of this depends onother influences in 's birth chart.

 

With other positive influences,  may be quietly confident and somewhatserious. Either way a firm and loving hand and a warm environment can help  overcome adversity and consequentlyfeel secure and gain confidence. Criticism is to be avoided at all costs,because  is more sensitive to harshwords than other children. Instead, parents need to do all that they can toboost 's self-esteem so that he can mature into a confident adult. As  matures, he overcomes adversity. Helearns the advantages of hard work and self-discipline. The positive side toearly-life difficulties is that has the wisdom of experience, and outstrips other children in hisachievements. This combination of the planet Saturn and the Moon is animportant one in astrology. In some cases, it simply acts to tone down otherinfluences in a child's birth chart. For instance, a fiery child may seem moreintroverted under this influence. For a full explanation of the likely outcomeof this combination it is best to visit a qualified astrologer.

 

Neptune is Sesquisquare TheMoon

 is a soft, imaginative and sensitive child. He needs gentlehandling and a calm environment in order to thrive. Baby  benefits from a peaceful and quiethome. If  has noisy siblings, thenhe benefits from his own quiet room somewhere, to escape the hustle and bustleof daily life. This child is prone to moodiness and is sensitive to theemotional 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 momentswhen  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 theinfluence of one woman. This could be mother or grandmother, or a favouriteaunt, teacher, nanny or caregiver. This woman is likely to be idealised by  and may have difficulty living up tohis expectations. As a result  maybe disillusioned and have trouble facing the realities of personalrelationships. On the other hand this woman could also positively influenceyoung , teaching him in a gentle and loving manner, helping him reach his truepotential. 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 lovehim to stand up and take notice of life's abundance. He is curious and keen toexplore new territory. If extroverted then young  is likely to end up in trouble as a result of his curiosityand resulting adventures into the outside world. He is a real character, aregular Tom Sawyer or Pippi Longstocking. However, a more introverted child maysimply 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 apivotal role in his life. His childhood relationship with father, or a strongfather figure, determines the extent to which he feels able to carve his ownniche later in life.  is likely toadore his father as a young child. As the patriarch of the family he earnsrespect 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-likeexpectations. However, he can make sure that  feels supported as much as possible.

 

Both and his father have strong personalities and therefore they clash, eachdetermined to express their own views or have their own way. It is importantthat 's father shows self-restraint, otherwise these clashes could becomeviolent. He needs to ensure that young is kept safe, away from emotional, verbal and physical abuse. In otherwords 's father needs to provide a safe environment in which he and  can both assert their own wills andgain greater understanding of themselves and each other. If this is notachieved then young  loses a senseof 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 freedomto develop his own powerful personality then young  is likely to develop great personal power, the ability tolead others and to achieve his own goals.

 

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

 

Saturn is Trine Mercury

Now here's a child who needs a lot ofapproval 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 withconfidence. The reason for this is that the combination of the planets Saturnand Mercury can be a difficult one, presenting some pitfalls in early childhooddevelopment. In other words young may face difficulties in his ability to learn and communicate. This, inturn, affects his self-confidence.

 

 may be shy, preferring the safety of his home rather thanventuring out and about.  could beslow to talk and read. Perhaps school seems a bit overwhelming to young . Heprefers to spend time reading in his own room rather than socialising with hisfriends.  is sensitive tocriticism, particularly any harsh words from his father or a prominent malemember of the family. On the other hand slowly blossoms when praised by his father. He also responds well to amale mentor's patient words of wisdom. needs a slow, methodical approach when being given any instructions. Heworks better within a structured environment. With calm handling  gradually gains self-understanding anda wisdom that is beyond his years.

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