SECTION I.  The Structure and Intent of Your Life.


There are four items of general interest that we want to take up here in Section I: A) Hemisphere and Quadrant Emphasis, B) Elements and Modes, C) The Ascendant and Midheaven, and D) The Conjunctions.  These four categories give us an intelligent overview of how you structure personal experience and what you aim for in life.  This general patterning gives us a context to understand the specific personal meaning of the material in Sections 2 through 11.


     A.  Hemisphere and Quadrant Emphasis


The different areas of life are laid out in the horoscope by spatial territories called houses.  These areas of life show interests and general involvements for each person.  These areas can be grouped together for a vast overview of most basic inclinations of the person. The most useful general groupings of houses is into hemispheres and quadrants.  Emphasis in a hemisphere or quadrant shows a particularly strong focus toward life from that perspective.


          1. Hemisphere


The horoscope can be split into 2 equal parts, either horizontally (giving us the upper and lower hemispheres) or vertically (giving  us the right and left hemispheres).  The Upper Hemisphere shows the outer, more extroverted side of the personality, the Lower Hemisphere shows the more introverted and hidden side of the personality.  In the Left Hemisphere planets are rising and this shows action.  In the Right Hemisphere planets are setting and this shows reaction.


Most planets Below the Horizon


You have the majority of your planets below the horizon showing that you need time each day in isolation in order to recharge your batteries.  You have a personal approach to life, preferring to work with people more than things and needing contact with the familiar in order to feel secure.


Most Planets Setting


You have the majority of your planets on the western half (or right-hand side) of your chart.  Your natural tendency is to seek others' approval and to question the probable outcome of an action before putting your first efforts forward.


          2. Quadrant


The two ways of splitting the horoscope into hemispheres can be applied simultaneously giving us four quadrants.  The FIRST is called the quadrant of personality.  The SECOND is called the quadrant of the environment.  The THIRD is called the quadrant of relationship.  The FOURTH is called the quadrant of service.


Most Planets in the Second Quadrant


You have the majority of your planets in the second quadrant showing that you will seek out the life experience that increases your sense of belonging, your sense of connectedness, your sense of personal expression.  You aim to develop a more secure and meaningful social life that offers a wide spectrum of emotional expression and unfoldment.  You desire to create.


     B.  Elements and Modes


The Elements and Modes show what we aim for in life.  They show our broadest focus and in the most general sense, how we go about achieving our goals.


          1. Elements


The four elements (fire, earth, air and water) are the most comprehensive inventory of the personality that we have. Everything in the universe including the human personality can be examined in terms of the four elements.  FIRE is your basic enthusiastic urge,  EARTH shows your concern for the material world,  AIR is the element of abstract thought,  WATER is your empathy impulse.  Fire and earth are primitive and focus on the self.  Air and water are derivative and focused on others.  Fire and air are naturally extrovert, optimistic, active, and freedom oriented.  Earth and water are basically introvert, pessimistic, passive, and security oriented.




Pluto is your only fire planet.   You have 10% of your chart in fire. You struggle to sustain your energy and enthusiasm for the common occurrences of life.  When you focus your attention on a project (rather than it just coming to you) deep fundamental changes with far reaching consequences emerge in your life.  This is not always evident right away.  For this reason alone, you need to be very selective as to which projects you wish to make your own.  Over-extension is always a danger.  Judgment and common sense can sustain you through uncomfortable times of compulsion.  Positive focus and correct pacing help secure success.




You have an abundance of earth in your chart showing that you are a cautious and thorough person.  You build material security in life. If, for any reason, this isn't happening you feel miserable.  This can point to a problem of valuing the wrong things in life and chasing empty dreams.  Ask yourself how much you really need and let it go at that.  You can be an earnest and hard working person if over-acquisitiveness doesn't blind you.




You have 30% of your chart in the air element.  You vacillate between being very interested in people and ideas and needing time by yourself. Periodic isolation and an involvement with routine, commonplace activities that do not require innovation are relaxing for you.  You need both spontaneous activities as well as predictable patterns in your life.




Mars is your only water planet.  This means that 10% of your chart is in water.  Your empathic emotions find their easiest expression when you are in a self assertion mode of operation. Developing a meaningful personal life is a desire of yours.  In order to accomplish this you need to be empathetic and sensitive to others.  This is  difficult. This as an area to be improved. It will require hard work to get in touch with your feelings.


          2. Modes


The three modes are CARDINAL, FIXED, and MUTABLE.  The modes of expression show how you act out your urges in the world.  They represent your most basic responding mechanism toward all of life experience.  The cardinal planets show direct expression in physical action, leadership ability and strength.  The fixed mode planets in your chart show reaction, consistency, persistency, endurance and stubbornness.  The mutable planets in your chart show synthesis, blending, malleableness, thought, forethought, debate and wisdom.  The following statements show the way the three modes manifest in your life.




You have no cardinal planets in your chart.  You need to learn to sort out ideas carefully before you act.  You learn much about yourself and life as circumstances force unwanted choices on you. Often you find the price of being with others is following preexisting patterns of action or letting others lead.  The alternative is to go your own way alone.




A tremendous amount of your chart is in the fixed mode.  You have endurance.  Whether a course of action is good or bad you are more likely to stay with it than change.   The principle of inertia is with you.  When you rest, you have real difficulty getting going.  When you are in motion,  you have real difficulty stopping or even changing directions (even  slightly).  People find you a loyal friend and a tenacious enemy.




You have an abundance of mutability in your chart.  You are a thinker and attempt to accommodate a number of circumstances and people in your environment.  You may have difficulty choosing a direction and staying with it.  Truth has a way of becoming a highly personal subjective factor; consequently, others think of you as not being able to communicate simple truths in a factual way.  You are nervous and may need more B-Vitamins in your diet, rest, and meditation in order to be balanced.


     C.  The Ascendant and Midheaven (Signs and Aspects)


          1.  The Ascendant


The ascendant is symbolic of our relationship to our immediate environment.  This is the point rising in the east when we are born. One manifestation of our immediate environment is our physical body. The physical environment includes our body, our surroundings and our emotional and mental states.  Thus, the ascendant tells us how our inner core expresses itself, and how we take in information from others and the universe generally. The sign rising in your horoscope tells us the type of energy you are processing, the type of physical body that you have for doing the processing and the natural inclinations you have in the personal arena in life.  The planets in aspect to your ascendant tell us the kind of energy and stamina you have as natural allies in life.  The ascendant is opposite the seventh house cusp (the place where we meet others and the world).  This axis (ascendant-descendant) is how we clarify ourselves through relationships. Planets in aspect to this axis indicate the types of people and the types of relationships we seek as well as how and why we seek them.


                           SAGITTARIUS RISING


You are enthusiastic and inspiring.  You learn from every situation and from every relationship in life.  Sitting still and dying are almost the same thing to you: an opportunity to catch up on your sleep.  Your natural mode of being is perpetual motion.  You like to study.  This may mean school, travel, or that you just have to spend time in the great outdoors.  All of these circumstances create knowledge and motion for you. Relationships are an opportunity for you to teach someone else what you have learned if not learn more yourself.  You have a deeply rooted perception that you can grow in a joyful way. This belief that life doesn't have to be hard work makes you fun to be around. Many good things come to you easily in life because you expect them to happen.  You need to be careful that your positive expectations don't become "short cuts" that have you starting over with nothing to show for your efforts.    People often like you even when they can't understand you.


Moon Quincunx the Ascendant


Your most sensitive feelings are often lost on others.  Time and again you have to go back to the beginning of any group project to clarify what it is that you are trying to accomplish.  "Short cuts" can be time consuming and force you into re-appraising your habits.


Mercury Opposition the Ascendant and in the 7th House and afflicted.


You are most curious as to what is going on in others' lives. You are not always correct in your assessment of other people or their motives. Consequently, although you enjoy interacting with others over creative and intellectual projects, you have great difficulty in making joint projects work smoothly.  It takes lots of energy to prevent misunderstandings.  You are interested in travel because you are desirous to gather any new or unique experience.  Other people and their concerns have a very deep and formative hold on you; take extra care to make sure they are positive in nature.


Venus Opposition the Ascendant and in the 6th House and afflicted.


You seek love and beauty from others.  You are upset when a relationship doesn't supply these ingredients.  Still, relating refines your outlook on life.  Be honest with yourself and don't give to others what you wish to keep and your personal life will go smoother.  You have a good grasp of the potential in any situation but may suffer from expecting too much from others.


Saturn Quincunx the Ascendant


Learning what you are responsible for (and what are other peoples' obligations) allows you a feeling of being productive. This sets the foundation for really enjoying life.  Until this happens you can be like a frustrated social worker, always seeing lots of injustices and chores without have the time, money, or energy to rectify the various "unjust" or incorrect situations. Discretion and discrimination are the backbone and beginning of genuine and truthful self appraisal.  A far reaching vision is fine, but, prioritizing and limiting your work day is an important step in maturation.


Neptune Square the Ascendant


You may not be able to prevent your being deceived by others, but you can strive to make sure that you don't do this to anyone else.  Your ideals, your distaste for the unpleasant, coupled with your imaginative embellishments in life can add up to difficulties with people.  It can be that you misappropriated some unrealistic ideals in your childhood that have tended to color your perception of the world since then. Your love of beauty will need some expression and you need some involvement with the arts and the culture as a whole in order for you to have solid and fulfilling emotional release.  Learn more and more to see the world and its people as they are, not only as they could be.


Pluto Sesquiquadrate the Ascendant


You have a warm magnetic charm that others will find appealing or repelling, depending on their temperament.  Your good efforts can be swept aside in a minute when your deep need for self transformation locks on to a new and experimental channel only to have it be a dead end. Be lighthearted and kind with yourself and you will be more pleasant for others.  Compulsion and drive give you focus and stamina and will help you accomplish much on any research project even though these same qualities play havoc in your personal life.  You enjoy intensity and find your stride with others who share this.


          2.  The Midheaven


The Midheaven is the high point in your chart.  It indicates what you aspire for, what you see as your duty, and what authority and limits are about.  Because of this basic meaning the Midheaven indicates how you live out your social station and what you do for your career.  The point opposite the Midheaven is the fourth house cusp, referred to as the nadir, which is the indication of our roots, our heritage. This axis (Midheaven-Nadir) indicates the way we grow in life.  The sign on the Midheaven shows our basic energy and approach toward dealing with the world.  Planets in aspect to the Midheaven show qualities of our inner being that we wish to contribute to the world and that we wish to be fulfilled through our interaction with the outer world.


                             LIBRA MIDHEAVEN


A certain evenhandedness goes into all decisions for you.  You tend to relegate much of your responsibilities as you like to involve others in major projects and decisions in life.  Your desire to do things correctly may lead to self-doubt and vacillation.  Your aim is high. Your overview of life is quite comprehensive.  Success always involves key relationships working out wholesomely.


Sun Sesquiquadrate Midheaven


You have forceful and erratic ways of expressing your personality to others.  You wish for and achieve positions of authority in life.  You have some ups and downs until you learn unique and consistent methods of self expression.  These come to you eventually as does meaning and significance in the position that you assume in other people's life.


Moon Quincunx the Midheaven


The ideals that you develop about yourself and the world will need constant reevaluation as you strive to put them into action. Your sensitivity to others can stop you from being able to act on your best insights until you make an uncompromising commitment to your true mission and purpose for being on the earth.


Mercury Trine Midheaven


You have a knack for making changes in life-style and career to accommodate changes in the world.  Your language skills are an important asset in the performance of your job or social position.


Venus Trine Midheaven


Your timing and sense of social grace really facilitate  your getting along with others.  You like working with people and have a gentle side of your personality that emerges in career.  You will long for some artistic expression.


Mars Sesquiquadrate Midheaven


You  are  a powerful person and you express your energy  with  a great amount of force.   Periodically you have an abrupt discharge of  energy and emotions.  Fighting with your superiors can become a way of life if you aren't careful.


Jupiter Sesquiquadrate Midheaven


You have leadership qualities but you get in your own forward progress by moving too fast or too autocratically for other people's taste.  You are lucky and confident and this insures some success in life.


Saturn Quincunx the Midheaven


The pressures of life can weigh on you, especially in youth. Learning to handle your obligations in a timely and limiting manner is very important part of coming to understand what your life is really about. You have a well developed social conscience that is not always attuned to your desires.  Frustrating compromises are necessary until you start fashioning your desires into a mold of social responsibility and awareness.  From this point on there is no conflict between your culture, social vision and your personal destiny.  You take pleasure in fulfilling your own goals as they are in step with your social picture.


     D. The Conjunctions.


A Conjunction occurs when two planets are in the same immediate area of the Zodiac.  The conjunctions in your chart show central linkings of basic energies in your life.  When one area (represented by a planet) expresses itself, it brings along the other area (represented by the other planet).  When you are studying the rest of this printout of your life, keep in mind that linking of these energies is a central theme in your life and these areas should be studied together.


Sun Conjunct Venus


Think of Sections II. THE SUN - Your ego structure, and V. VENUS - Your love nature, as a single unit.  These two very primary ingredients of your being express themselves together.  Whatever affects one of them affects both of them.  This Conjunction represents a central theme in your life.


Sun Conjunct Jupiter


Think of Sections II. THE SUN - Your ego structure and VII. JUPITER -Your values, as a single unit.  These two very primary ingredients of your being express themselves together.  Whatever affects one of them affects both of them.  This Conjunction represents a central theme in your life.


Sun Conjunct Uranus


Think of Sections II. THE SUN - Your ego structure, and IX. URANUS -Your search for freedom, as a single unit.  These two very primary ingredients of your being express themselves together. Whatever affects one of them affects both of them.  This Conjunction represents a central theme in your life.


Moon Conjunct Jupiter


Think of Sections III. THE MOON - Your personal life, and VII. JUPITER - Your values, as a single unit.  This Conjunction colors your unconscious habits and your basic attitude toward life. This is an extremely important ingredient of your identity and represents a primary attribute of your personality.


Moon Conjunct Saturn


Think of Sections III. THE MOON - Your personal life, and VIII. SATURN -  Your obligations, as a single unit.  This Conjunction colors your unconscious habits and your basic attitude toward life.  This is an extremely important ingredient of your identity and represents a primary attribute of your personality.


Moon Conjunct Uranus


Think of Sections III.  THE MOON - Your personal life, and IX. URANUS -Your search for freedom, as a single unit.  This Conjunction colors your unconscious habits and your basic attitude toward life.  This is an extremely important ingredient of your identity and  represents a primary attribute of your personality.


Jupiter Conjunct Saturn


Think of Sections VII. JUPITER - Your values, and VIII. SATURN -Your obligations, as a single operating principal.  This Conjunction shows your drive for social involvement and represents a consistent and special focus in your life.


Jupiter Conjunct Uranus


Think of Sections VII. JUPITER - Your values, and IX. URANUS -Your search for freedom, as a single unit.  At times this unit operates as an irrepressible and spontaneous and optimistic force in the core of your personality.  This Conjunction represents a pivotal focus in your life.


Saturn Conjunct Uranus


Think of Sections VIII. SATURN - Your obligations, and IX. URANUS -Your search for freedom, as a single unit.  This Conjunction represents an inner emotional tension that either strengthens or weakens your life depending on how it is integrated into the rest of your personality. In either case, this principle is a central feature of your life.


SECTION II.  The SUN - Your Ego Structure


The Sun is the center of the solar system.  All life revolves around it within this sphere.  In the same way, the ego is the center of personal identity and gives integration and continuity to individual experience. In this sense, it might be said that the Sun shows character.  This is the fixed pillar at the center of the person around which all else circulates or revolves.


The sign placement of the Sun shows the center of the individual's basic character.  The sign of the Sun is the most primary indicator of the forms of experience you are attracted to.  Further, this most important placement shows how and why you are attracted to these experiences.


The house placement of the Sun sign shows the primary area of expression for the individual in life.  There is a psychological, emotional, and physical significance to the house placement of the Sun. Aspects to the Sun show ways that the core of the personality are linked to other component elements in the individual's life.  Aspects to the Sun have a deep and overriding significance in the life of the individual and are generally more important, more prominent than other aspects in the chart.




You are versatile and adaptable.  Usually, you have fifty projects going, all at the same time.  You are interested in everything, but this makes it very difficult to do anything in particular very well. You love to relate.  You build your day and your life around interactions with people, ideas and events.  You are a rapid learner and a good communicator.  Often, your learning is on the surface and your communication is just imitative, but you can reason and are not afraid of innovation. Try to be more consistent in your approach to life.  When you are well organized, you accomplish.  When you develop sympathy for others, your relationships become more stable.


Sun in 6th house


You have a tendency to immerse yourself in detail.  You are interested in making sure that you "get it right" when you set out to do something.  The positive side of this is that you are well adapted to getting along with the world on its own terms. You know how to adjust to others and to circumstances which are beyond your control.


Sun in 6th house Unafflicted


You instinctively know where to put your effort in order to get results.  You achieve much in life through personal effort.  You are lucky because you understand that you "get what you pay for in life". Hard work brings success because you have an eye for the important details in any project.




You have a magnetic charm to which people are naturally attracted. People like you.  Your inner knowledge of people aids greatly in getting along with others.  Because you have a second sense for what to say to people, you need to guard against mere people-pleasing, which can reduce your diplomatic skills to some form of self-seeking manipulation.  You are aesthetic and have a certain inclination toward all that is beautiful.  You were thought of as a cute child; if your interests in self refinement are cultivated in your adult years, you become a truly beautiful person.




You are energetic and brave but sometimes too impulsive or rash. You hurt yourself and others at times through outbursts of temper.  You can back a losing cause at times, throwing good energy after bad.  You do this because you view your goals through a desire-incrusted lens which distorts your vision or because you mis-evaluate your own power, or both.  You can guard against this tendency by learning to draw conclusions from all of life rather than just your own immediate wants. You are naturally powerful but need to guard against the tendency to run over others.




You are full of energy and passion.  Your intensity and power color everything that you do.  Planning and focus are very important because your goals switch and your desires are always changing.  When you are angry, thoughts of revenge and general hate or avarice drag you into a pattern of destruction.  Your energy stays productive when you acknowledge, then harness your desires.




You are generous but don't always make the best judgment as to where you can do the most good.  There is a good-hearted optimism at the center of your being which takes the edge off other things that may be problematic.  You think well of people and are a good judge of character.  Your vitality is good but you do need to watch that you are not overindulgent.  You love luxury and too much of a good thing can be trouble.  Although you do have financial gain, at times you can be extravagant.




You are freedom-loving.  You are original and independent.  You look for unusual manners of expression and are drawn to experiences that bring out your inventiveness.  When you act, you do so quickly, engaging your whole being.  You have a deep willfulness and are capable of holding onto a point of view or a line of action against the odds, common sense, and logic; you may change your mind or direction in life, but nobody else will change it for you.  When you do make a change you do so abruptly and there can be great upheaval in your life.




You are penetrating in your insight and informative in your suggestions to others.  You ask a good deal of yourself and are driven unconsciously toward important issues.  You have an instinctive and natural grasp of fundamentals.  You approach anything new with a blend of distrust and curiosity, but when you commit to some project you are one hundred percent behind it and execute your part with daring and self-confidence.  You make a true friend and a great ally.  Your vitality is very strong.




When you are emotionally connected to a project, your compulsive nature can carry you through to completion in a way that increases awareness. Great insight and stamina powers your ego to great personal achievement.


SECTION III.  The MOON - Your Personal Life.


The Moon inscribes a circle around the earth.  It moves more swiftly than other astronomical bodies and thus represents day to day and moment to moment movements, adjustments and preoccupations.  The Moon is the symbol of the personal life which is molded and shaped by our environment, by events, and by social and familial expectations. Further, the Moon shows our responses to life which are based on our past habits, experiences, our heritage and our individual and collective cravings.


The sign placement of the Moon shows how you project yourself to the general public, how the instinctive and imaginative component of your mind operates, how you express your feelings and your most general experiences of your family and mother.


The house placement of the Moon shows how and where you make day to day adjustments.  Further, it shows the things you are most interested in dealing with in order to gain emotional equilibrium.


The aspects of the Moon show the general characteristics of the personality that are emphasized.  Planets in aspect to the Moon are symbolic of qualities in the personality that are used instinctively, habitually and with a high degree of versatility.




You have a sense of inner satisfaction that is both your strength and your weakness.  On one hand, you know how to be persistent, to feel contented and to take the sensuous joy in the goodness of life.  On the other hand, you may have real difficulty getting going when your circumstances require change.  You may have some talent for the arts and you certainly love the creation of beauty.  Your feelings run deep and your instincts and reactions to life are very colored by your past experiences.


Moon in 5th house


You have a strong need for recognition.  Your habits are unique and pronounced.  Not that your friends will think that what you do is different, but rather, you tend to become the standard in every group to which you belong.


Moon in 5th house Unafflicted


A warm nurturing energy is a central ingredient of your way of dealing with others.  Your dramatic, emotional expressions help your children, friends, clients and students feel better about themselves.  You are the recipient of love, affection and admiration from people who only know your public image.




You are sincere, generous and joyful.  Your life tends to go from good to better mostly because you are optimistic and expect it. For the most part you are healthy and robust.  Sometimes extravagance and overindulgence can cause you difficulties.  Too much of the good life ends up limiting your freedom.  Once you learn moderation and contentment you experience deep and continuous inner joy.




Your natural temperament is practical, thorough and cautious. You learn things slowly and don't alter your style of being or your path in life very readily.  If something has worked in the past that is usually sufficient reason to keep on doing it.  You have a tendency to be moody and pessimistic.  Try to be more carefree and less depressive.  You can be responsible but your imagination can start working in negative channels if you drive yourself too hard.




You have unusual habits and original methods of implementation of your ideas.  Your sense of timing in life is unique; sometimes this works to your favor, sometimes it doesn't.  Your special rhythmic way of expressing yourself can be interpreted as being flighty, indifferent or irresponsible by others, so you do yourself a favor keeping people posted as to your ideas and procedures.  Your spontaneousness and creativity gives your activities an exciting carefree feeling.  You may experience large amounts of emotional tension so you should learn to relax.




You have a deep and abiding connection with music and art.  When you are upset or feeling unbalanced; you can gain a sense of peace through music, meditation, and isolation.  You are a sensitive and creative soul.  As long as you are not too passive, your life has the good fortune to unfold along the path of least resistance.  (Becoming too passive can mean stagnation).  You are idealistic and believe the best about people.  This is good and helps people, but remember to concentrate on people as they are, and not just what they might become. A lofty potential is always there but might not ever manifest.




Your senses become a deep road to pleasure and your idealistic mannerisms and proposals win you an audience which you inspire. You are very sensitive and need time alone, in quiet surroundings, in order to be balanced.  You have a deep appreciation for music and are moved emotionally by its color, rhythm and timbre.


SECTION IV.  MERCURY - Your Mental Life.


Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun.  From the viewpoint of the earth it seems to dart back and forth across the face of the Sun, having three retrograde cycles a year.  Mercury is the planet of your mental life.  It shows how you receive, process and disseminate information. The sign placement of Mercury shows your basic attitude and mental habits.  The aspects of Mercury show your scope of vision and your methods for accomplishing tasks.




Your mind hops from thing to thing like a starving wolf in a cage full of bunny rabbits.  You see all sides of every question and then invent a few more to explore.  You are logical, inquisitive, and mentally alert although your insights may be completely superficial.  Develop depth and persistence, then you have the best of both worlds.  When you talk, people will often be moved by your witty, humorous form of rationalization.  You are good with words although you may like them more than they deserve. You like inventing new words and sounds and ideas.  If you also have continuity in your expressions you may well become an expresser of great ideas as well as a great learner.  You are making adjustments to circumstances in your environment all the time, whether they are required or not.  You like change.


Mercury in 7th house


You are attracted to people who you feel are interested in life and who are good conversationalists.  You feel comfortable relating with those you have a past history with.  Your own thoughts become clearer through dialogue.


Mercury in 7th house Afflicted


Others may offer advice which misses the subtleties of your circumstances.  Avoid being swayed from a course of action by casual input from others.  Make sure when you speak that others understand you.




You see more than you can do.  It's as if you are being led through life responding to a voice that no one else around you can hear.  People may like you a lot and yet think you are quite naive.  You believe in things that others think of as make believe.  This is part of your charm, for part of you has always remained a child.  You need to make sure that you know how to communicate to others based on their perceptions and beliefs, otherwise you have great difficulty belonging to a larger world than the one of your own creation.




Your imagination is in service to your feelings of limitation and you find yourself as an escapist.  You are very sensitive to your environment and little irritations get blown out of proportion in your mind, just as your mind can belittle a really important issue.  This same problem can cause emotional difficulties as there is confusion with others.  Learn to test your conclusions in the world that others live in and you safeguard yourself from making some unfortunate errors. You need a creative outlet for your mind; otherwise, fantasy takes the place of reason at really inconvenient times.


SECTION V.  VENUS - Your Love Nature.


The planet Venus shows the way you express your love nature and what you aspire for in life as good or beautiful. Venus has much to do with how you form your values.  The sign placement of Venus shows the type of love energy you have.  The house placement of Venus shows the natural area of expression of the love energy. The aspects of Venus indicate how and under what circumstances you express the gentle and loving side of your nature.




You love intellectual pursuits and may become involved romantically purely for the information it provides.  You have a refined gentleness about you but since your interests and focus is mental, others will see you as fickle.  You can fall in and out of love quickly with either a person or an ideal.  There is a youthful quality to you and you will seek inner peace through changing relationships, locations and travel.  You love the exchange of ideas and need to make sure that you give yourself the background you really require in life.  Weak foundations can give you a disposition that merely dances across the surface of life.


Venus in 6th house


You make your work circumstances pleasant and you generally find your daily routines pleasant.  Your general health picture may not be particularly strong.  Personal accomplishment in life comes through cooperation and sharing.  You are capable of this but may need to remind yourself every so often to let others become involved in your work.


Venus in 6th house Afflicted


You may cause yourself trouble by overlooking important factors in your environment which are essential to everything running smoothly in your life.  Avoid any pretense that everything is fine when you can see real difficulties around you.  Only by dealing with trouble are you able to find real peace of mind and personal satisfaction.




You have an aspect of Venus to the Sun showing that you identify at a very fundamental level with your ability to express the loving, genteel side of your nature.  This aspect of your nature was commented on in some detail in Section II.  The Sun - Your Ego Structure.




You are prone to emotional and financial excess.  Your beliefs and values are at odds with your desires and it takes a lot of energy to integrate the two.  You may become very interested in the baser, more physical side of romance.  This is because you instinctively look for a common denominator between desires and values.  The way out of this dilemma is to work at helping others and avoid putting energy into the selfish side of your drives.




Conflict between love and desire causes a deep inner struggle. You look for "love in all the wrong places."  Dancing, singing, and music are a way that you can create more of a harmonious atmosphere around you. There is a self defeating and self destructive chord in your nature which needs some instruction in the right direction in order to be more beneficial.  First, be conscious of your tendency to react to others; then, you automatically start lifting out of the baser side of your nature. When you catch yourself acting in a way that is not in your best interest, concentrate on your ability to defer immediate pleasure for a long range good.


SECTION VI.  MARS - Your Energy.


Mars is the planet of desires.  It shows how you aim at your goals and how you power yourself toward your goals.  Mars represents your most fundamental wants.  The sign placement of Mars shows the fundamental nature of your assertions.  The house placement of Mars shows the area of your life you are most likely to focus on.  The aspects to Mars show how and to what extent your desires and assertions are involved with other aspects of living.




You desire an ideal that doesn't manifest in the world around you. When you learn this, your energy is channeled toward a higher realm. Then, life works out well for you.  Until you learn this you dissipate your energy chasing the symbols of the ideal and tend to be quite confused.  Your method for getting what you want is momentary and confused.  You are intuitive in your approach and things tend to get so complicated that even simple things can retreat into the category of the unobtainable.  Your energy becomes stronger and more stable when you get a musical or artistic outlet for your imagination.  The harmony and inner rhythm of the arts allows you to be open to necessary structuring of your impulses.


Mars in 2nd house


You have a desire for money.  Your attention tends to focus on how much you are paid and how others view the monetary worth of your work.  You see material reward as an important calibration of how much the world values your efforts.


Mars in 2nd house Afflicted


You need to work on your attitude towards money - it tends to be unhealthy.  You have given it an artificial value.  Spending, earning, and saving are not very balanced for you.  You suffer thinking that the material world can do something for you that it is poorly designed to do.  Avoid expressing your emotions with things.  Don't touch your material resources when you feel angry and you will feel better about yourself.




You have an aspect of Mars to the Sun.  This shows that you have a very strong and direct nature.  Your energy and vitality are key ingredients to your self concept.  This issue is taken up in some detail in the Section II.  The Sun - Your Ego Structure.




You have Mars in aspect to Venus.  This aspect shows sex appeal and interest in romance.  This aspect is covered more fully in Section V. Venus - Your Love Nature.




You are lucky but overstep your limits time and time again.  You are truly lucky when you learn how to walk away from the dice table a winner rather than always going for double or nothing until you lose. Your tendency is always to try to multiply a winning situation rather than just accepting it as a win at face value.  Enough is enough, learn to be satisfied.  In human relationships you are often in a kind of good-natured competition even with those on your team.  You think of this as building character and personal reliance but others will see you as selfish and a poor team player.  Your boldness and bluntness needs to be curbed; for even though people may like you, they will not trust you.




Enthusiasm, energy, optimism and luck carry you a long way in life. However, hypocrisy, misappraisals, tactlessness, and bombasticness cause you trouble.  If you have patience, good judgment, and take the time to lay a good foundation in every project you undertake, you will go far, have a winning flair, and lots of luck.  Your natural instinct to gamble will "do you in", but, controlled, this same impulse gives your personality color.




Jupiter is the king of the planets.  He is in charge of the order of creation.  Jupiter shows your values, where you feel confident and in control, and where you feel you have something to teach others.  The sign placement of Jupiter shows your values in life. The house placement of Jupiter shows the area of life you feel luckiest in and the area you receive the most help from other people and from the cosmos.  The aspect patterns to Jupiter show the direct network of good and administrative power in your life.




You value the conventional, the practical and the solid.  You are accomplished in life because you have an instinctive feeling for what you are worth.  You also have positive feelings for what others are worth.  Your concern for others prompts you to be quite generous.  You attract material well-being and security because you believe that they are easy and natural.  Your ethical outlook is to help others in practical ways.  Just as money can be used to make money you have a personal feeling for how like attracts like.  When your organizational skills are focused on basic material necessities of life you are quite lucky.  Love of material pleasure and attraction to the truly beautiful add color to your value system.  You instinctively know how to invest.  You have an insight into what things are worth and where to put your attention.


Jupiter in 5th house


You are fond of self-expression.  You are a natural creator, demonstrator and teacher.  You experience much joy through artistic and cultural outlets.  You have the ability to get along with children.


Jupiter in 5th house Unafflicted


You may be so enthusiastic and powerful in your self-expression that others find you difficult.  Although you are generally successful in what you have been doing, avoid being so self-absorbed that you don't see what is going on in others' lives. Your confidence, in itself, however, encourages others to get on with their own lives.




You have an aspect from Jupiter to the Sun showing a deep connection between your values and your ego.  As a consequence of this you have a stronger faith in your beliefs than most people and you are more likely to act on them.  You have the potential for being quite an inspiration for others.  In Section I. (The Sun - Your Ego Structure) there is more commentary on this trait of yours.




You have an aspect from Jupiter to the Moon showing an interest in expressing values through your daily life.  What you believe has more impact on what you do than it does for most other people.  The information on this topic in Section III.  (The Moon - Your Personal Life) may be helpful in grasping how you do this.




You have an aspect of Jupiter to Mars.  This aspect shows that you have an optimistic spirit and have the ability to assert your desires. Your enthusiasm may come forward as combativeness or as competition but in either case you are a lively participant in life.  Your values and your energy emerge as zest for living. This aspect is commented on further in Section VI.  Mars - Your Energy.




You have a conservative streak in you that is seeking the lowest common denominator.  You get to your goal in life and accomplish much by slow, tenacious effort.  Your life really takes off between the ages of 27 and 36.  It is during this time that you "find yourself". Your success is directly linked to the success of the culture.  You rise and fall with the fortunes of everyone else.  Seeing this principle in operation, perhaps you can pace yourself so that you don't waste time and energy trying to push your own life forward faster than the country or the social order can assimilate it.




You are a freedom lover and have great expectations for yourself and for life.  You are lucky because you fully expect the good. You can be very argumentative because you have a tendency to grasp very big abstractions, but from your own limited perspective.  This lends itself to fanatic and lopsided presentations of your beliefs.  You are prone to letting nervous pressure build up inside until it comes spilling out in some abrupt breakthrough of symbolic activity that changes the perspective in your life from stagnant to exciting.  This oscillating rhythmic cycle pushes you from exhilaration to nervous pressure and back to ecstasy.  It is important that you stay in touch with this periodic change in order to maximize the efficient use of your energy.




You have spiritual insight into problems that aids your skills in finding solutions.  You emit a certain charm that greases the wheels of life.  You have broad appeal that engenders trust in the general public, regardless of whether or not you can sustain this trust from those who see you close up.




Your ideals can get you into trouble.  Its very important that you use your analytic skills to plan carefully a way to realize your larger vision of life.  Otherwise, you can get stuck living in a dream land of how things could be or should be, always believing that your dreams will come true.  They certainly can if you work for them in an intelligent and conscientious way.




You have natural leadership qualities, insight into social and spiritual needs and a sense of humor that stops you from taking yourself or the world too seriously.  You have the ability to teach others because you emit a certain magnetic charge on all that you say and it stays with people.  But, more important than your skill at disseminating information is your ability to find and go directly to any situation that will help you learn and grow.  You are on a quick track in this life and have determined to work on improving the attributes of your personality that need development the most.  You will have material abundance in this life but it may have little importance to you once attained since you are really looking for freedom, and the material abundance only brings you more worldly responsibilities.




You see opportunity and short cuts in very perplexing and seemingly unsolvable difficulties.  Consequently, you are a good "troubleshooter" possessing great potential and technical expertise.  With a solid supporting temperament and sufficient energy you will accomplish a great deal.  Without these things you still have unfailing and uncanny luck stemming from good instincts and perceptive insights.  You are able to complete projects with a polish and diplomacy that amazes others.


SECTION VIII.  SATURN - Your Obligations.


The planet Saturn shows where you feel restricted.  You feel obligations and fears through Saturn.  Because of your feeling connected with Saturn you are either responsible or neglectful. The sign placement of Saturn shows the basic type of energy connected with your obligations.  The house placement of Saturn shows an area of life that you feel restricted in and work hard to obtain the things that come to you.  The aspects of Saturn show the most direct involvement of other areas of your life with your feelings of responsibility.




You fear not having money or being dependent on anyone else.  You are solid, practical, trustworthy and thrifty.  You defend yourself against the outside world by racking up material success.  You are security-oriented.  You can become too stubborn and cut off from others.  When life becomes too premeditated you need to break the tyranny of thinking that you are your possessions.  Have more fun!


Saturn in 5th house


You work harder than most people to get the creative side of your personality out.  You don't get enough socializing in, and when you do have fun, you take that seriously, too.  Learn to relax.


Saturn in 5th house Unafflicted


Success comes to you by following well established procedures, and working with things that are tangible.  Pleasure, recreation, and creative projects are serious business for you.  You have more difficulty truly relaxing than most people.  You feel that your social life and romantic encounters should serve some practical end.  You don't rest easily unless you have your responsibilities taken care of. Your sense of duty is admirable but you need to be responsible to yourself as well.




You have Saturn in aspect to the Moon showing a close relationship between your upbringing and your emotional outlook. This connection is explored in its essence in Section III.  The Moon - Your Personal Life.




You have Saturn in aspect to Jupiter showing that you have an interest in procedures and legal structures.  This interest is discussed in Section VII.  Jupiter - Your Values.




You are often caught in some inner struggle to adopt the new and discard the old.  There is an iconoclastic streak in you that is always trying to compensate and overcome your fears and frustrations with the way things have always been.  Adjustment is easy on the surface but underneath you experience tension.  You have an inner core of strength that serves you well.  Persistence gets you to your goals.




You are creative and have a deep, inward gentleness.  You are able to use existing social structures to further your vision of a better world.  You care about others and are free of malice. You are a builder and have discipline and patience to get to a distant goal.




Steady, concentrated psychic perceptions of the future blends comfortably and unassumingly with every aspect of your nature. When you follow the bedrock of your own inner perceptions and feelings without any contradictions, success is assured.  You have an ability to be on the cutting edge of any cultural wave. Good dramatic instincts add flavor to your self expression.


SECTION IX.  URANUS - Your Search For Freedom.


The planet Uranus is beyond the orbit of Saturn and can't be seen without the aid of a telescope.  It represents the sky in us, that which transcends the limits of finite life.  Uranus raises the vibration of everything it contacts.  The sign placement of Uranus shows your broadest striving for freedom.  The house placement of Uranus indicates your area of direct unique expression.  The aspects to Uranus indicate the way you express your need for higher consciousness.




You are passionate but manifest clearly the principle of inertia; thus, acting immediately and directly on your feelings is quite. You express your uniqueness more through "won't power" than will power. You are the immovable object.  Your creativity can emerge more fully and more positively when you pay attention to your security instincts by acting in accordance with the principles of our changing society, instead of being stuck in the past.


Uranus in 5th house


You have an unusual manner of self-expression.  Your creative efforts are original.  This can cross over into seeing unique openings in speculation that may bring you success through rapid gain.  Your children may be highly unusual and perhaps very gifted.


Uranus in 5th house Unafflicted


Wild gain can come your way through following your unique, creative impulses.  Gain is change which requires sacrifice. Luckily, you are prepared to make the changes necessary and you do so swiftly and unconsciously.




You have Uranus in aspect to the Sun showing that you are a freedom lover at heart and this forms a central feature of your personality. This aspect of your nature is explained in Section II.  The Sun - Your Ego Structure.




You have Uranus in aspect to the Moon.  This indicates that you have an emotional pattern that expresses your uniqueness.  This is explained in Section III.  The Moon - Your Personal Life.




You have Uranus in aspect to Jupiter showing that you have a big vision of what life can be at its best.  How this works out for you is discussed in Section VII.  Jupiter - Your Values.




You have Uranus in aspect with your Saturn.  This indicates that you are attempting to accommodate the urge for security and the urge for freedom.  More detail on this blending is in Section VIII.  Saturn -Your Obligations.




You have an interest in spiritual subjects and are inclined to live out one of your higher visions of truth at some time in this life. You project a big picture of the possible in society.  Your unconscious mind is a forceful, creative energy that bursts forth every so often.




You have a deep underlying faith in openness and democratic ideals. Your actions are colored by an unconscious belief that the most positive conclusion to life events will occur.  Your natural movement toward freedom and self expression finds you riding a wave of cultural change.




Your unusual sense of timing and peculiar ideas get a fair hearing even though you are way out of focus from the conscious direction of the world.  You are blessed with some mechanical skills as well as possessing some deeper insight into people's motivation.  In relationships you are always touching sensitive places in others' consciousness, forcing them to grow.




Great social forces afoot during your life can be a source of complete change of direction for you.  You know how to go with forces greater than your own life.  You are led by the logic of experience and your adjustment to it in order to achieve personal freedom in some dimension of life, even if this freedom is limited.


SECTION X.  NEPTUNE - Your Spiritual Aspirations and Ideals.


The planet Neptune has an almost perfectly circular orbit.  It represents the part of our nature that strives for perfection, that looks to some higher ideal.  The planet Neptune rules the ocean and the part of us that is beyond the limits of the shores of personal existence.  The culture moves with the cycles of Neptune and it is the primary indicator of your connection to the culture that you live in. The sign of Neptune shows an ideal that you desire to manifest.  The house placement of Neptune shows the area of your life that you want to express this ideal in.  The aspect patterns of Neptune indicate the most direct connections yet most subtle networking of your personality into the world at large.




You believe in a better world through technology and scientific innovation.  You can be quite analytic.  The practical concerns of life are more stimulating than the purely theoretical and speculative. You are utility minded and hold on to the ideal of service as a way to improve life.


Neptune in 9th house


You are idealistic in your outlook and are always up for long journeys or long-term planning.  You are very intuitive and open to mystical and mythical interpretations of life.


Neptune in 9th house Unafflicted


Your ideals are so lofty that others might see you are always missing a distant target.  The truth is, though, that you steadily approach your far away goal, and your values have their impact even though it may not be immediately obvious even to you.




You have an aspect of Neptune to the Moon.  This indicates a deep interest in the arts and in cultural pursuits.  How your aesthetic taste influences your daily life is discussed further in Section III. The Moon - Your Personal Life.




You have an aspect of Neptune to your Mercury showing a deep vision of the truth and some psychic awareness.  This perception of yours is discussed in some detail in Section IV.  Mercury -Your Mental Life.




You have an aspect of Neptune to Jupiter.  This indicates that you have a lofty vision of the possible in life and that you attract good things by this expectation.  How this works out for you is shown by Section VII.  Jupiter - Your Obligations.




You have an aspect of Neptune to Saturn, showing an interest in bringing about an ideal.  This aspect of your nature is discussed in Section VIII.  Saturn - Your Obligations.




You have Neptune in aspect to Uranus showing that one part of your nature will have a propensity to act out the unexpected. How this manifests is indicated in Section IX.  Uranus - Your Search for Freedom.


SECTION XI.  PLUTO - Your Need For Fundamental Change.


The planet Pluto represents the dark underground part of you.  It shows your ability to transform the most fundamental properties in your own inner nature.  The sign of Pluto is the way the obsessive, compulsive and committed part of your nature expresses itself.  The house placement of Pluto shows the area of life where you make your most fundamental and most potent changes. The aspects to Pluto show the deepest most unconscious links in your personality structure.




At best, you believe in yourself and are willing to stand on your own. You have a need for self expression.  At worst, you are completely stuck on yourself, and have a strong desire to bend everyone else to your will.


Pluto in 8th house


You have intensely potent, emotional and sexual relationships. You may have great concern over money but are in line for some inheritance. This doesn't mean that at some time money difficulties leave you.  You stay worried until you uncover and dissolve uncomfortable, emotional attachments.


Pluto in 8th house Unafflicted


Your love of the hidden aspect of life will lead you into some genuinely strange situations and some unusual states of consciousness. At least at a symbolic level, you are deeply plugged into society's resources.




You have an aspect from Pluto to your Sun showing that much of your ego stays submerged and that you have a deep wellspring of inner forces to call upon.  This is described in Section II.  The Sun - Your Ego Structure.




You have an aspect of Pluto to Jupiter showing that you have a deep connection with the abundance of the earth.  How this works out is taken up in Section VII.  Jupiter - Your Values.




You have an aspect of Pluto to Uranus indicating you have a powerful urge to change in a fundamental way.  This change in described in Section IX.  Uranus - Your Search for Freedom.






Part of your style of being a person is tied to your personal method of adapting to and interacting with other people.  This aspect of your personality shows itself through every aspect of how you deal with the environment.  This method of your being encourages as well as reveals your uniqueness.




You concentrate a lot of your energy and attention in a few areas of interest.  You are intense.  Your preferred style of dealing with a difficulty is to either ignore it or to focus on it completely and wholeheartedly.  An item of experience or a person will either have your complete attention or none of it.  You have great depth of interest in a few areas.  You are happiest and most productive if you find the physical, emotional, and intellectual environments that you function in best early in life and stick fairly close to them.  Your keyword is focus.




Your reasoning style is less recourse to theory and more attention to what works.  You are empirical and would rather "look in the horse's mouth" than speculate on how many teeth it must have.




The following material is an index of things that you have developed as inner resources.  You may take them for granted, but in times of reevaluation and rest this part of your personality can provide you comfort and strength.


Well-Aspected Moon.


Your daily habits give you a sense of continuity and help you build a pattern of success.  Your ability to get things done by being very personable with people is a big plus in life.


Well-Aspected Saturn.


You know your limits.  This single quality can stop you from getting into any deep troubles as you instinctively pull back to preserve your gains before you become too vulnerable.  The conservative side of your personality is an asset.


Well-Aspected Uranus.


You can spot unique opportunities and use them creatively for the upliftment of any situation.  You are able to alter a troublesome circumstance by doing the unexpected.  In any situation, when you do anything that suddenly shifts the dynamics, the outcome is frequently very advantageous.


Well-Aspected Pluto.


Your ability to be thorough and absolutely no-nonsense when it comes to reorienting yourself in a time of trouble is especially helpful.  Your sense of timing is usually accurate.  You can turn a delicate project into an assured success by being 100% behind it.


Moon in Taurus.


You have an inner strength that is rooted in uncommonly deep self-acceptance and self-satisfaction.  You have very consistent habits that help you.


Mercury in Gemini.


You have a great asset in your mental versatility and in your ability to switch directions.  You find strength in change and when in trouble you can see alternative points of view and a number of different strategies for acting.


Pluto in the Eighth House.


You are committed to the transformation of your relationship to your world.  Years may transpire where this isn't evident, but you are always working inwardly on this very project and it is a deep source of strength.




This material describes the "cutting edge" of your work on yourself. The thoughts rendered here are meant as further guidelines for growth. You should take difficulties and challenges in the right spirit.  They are always positive indicators as to how you can experience the joy of becoming a better person and more like your REAL SELF.


Afflicted Mercury


You suffer because you draw the wrong conclusions from your perceptions.  There are several ways of breaking out of a negative picture.  You can ask other people's advice as to your present course of action in life, you can strive to be more empirical in your observations, and you can look for a consistent pattern in your past actions.  Through expanding your perceptions, you can break out of a self-limiting mental bubble.


Afflicted Venus


You sell yourself short in love.  You have great difficulty getting your true emotional intentions to the surface and self-expression can be awkward, overly self-conscious, or ineffective in achieving your heart's desire.  The key to personal development in love and interpersonal expression lays in setting your emotional priorities. This leads to less conflict and to the experience of more satisfaction.


Afflicted Mars


Your desires often get you into trouble.  Rechanneling your energy into something constructive is very difficult.  Your natural tendency is to repress your wants or to trade one extreme, like anger, for another such as lust or greed.  Your energy is still a winning quality and good effort eventually brings good results.  You can learn to redirect your impulses through hard work, patience and consistent attention to results.


Venus in the Sixth House


You are good at resolving difficulties in love relationships by examining the details in the other person's life.  It is difficult for you to change the quality of your own self expression in relationships. This is what is required though, if anything fundamental is to change.


Mars in the Second House


You suffer from being too result-oriented in your actions.  Learn to direct your energy toward activities of intrinsic worth even if you will not personally gain from them.


Saturn in the Fifth House


You hold yourself back and have a habit of expressing the weaker side of your personality first.  Have courage in your self expression and you will be able to help others and build a bigger picture of yourself by doing so.


Uranus in the Fifth House


Although you express an urge for freedom in a unique and creative way, your identification with the creative energy often traps you into forms of self-display that are limiting.  Freedom comes through a humanitarian concern for all of life.


Uranus in Taurus


The drive toward expanse tends to be derailed by the security impulse. Instead of looking for freedom by satisfying your wants, look for freedom from wanting at all as the way to growth.  Real security is inner security.


Neptune in Virgo


When the manifestation of your ideals is blocked, you interpret the situation as a problem of either inadequacy of technique or as lack of pertinent details.  The truth of the matter is that you need to expand your faith in the power of your ideals and values.  Don't fear change and correction and your aim in life will naturally be raised.





The  Growth  aspects  operate  differently  than  other  aspects  in  your  chart.    While  it  is  possible  to  use  them  descriptively,  as  showing  finer  shades  of  meaning  within  the  chart,  we  wish  to  use  them  in  a  different  manner  for  our  purposes.    The  growth  aspects  are  tools  of  self  development.    If  you  apply  attention  to  the  various  qualities  in  your  nature  linked  through  the  growth  aspects,  you  will  see  positive  change  over  time.    These  qualities  generally  do  not  show  quick  effortless  solutions,  but  instead  show  a  path  of  change  requiring  exertion  and  emotional  honesty.  Under  these  circumstances,  the  way  these  aspects  of  your  nature  change  through  time  are  truly  amazing.  The  qualities  mentioned  here  can  be  the  very  mechanisms  to  release  the  highest,  finest  side  of  your  nature.


Moon in Growth Aspect to Mercury


You have an opportunity to learn about your feelings by discussing them with others.  Further, as you get used to expressing your emotions more directly and spontaneously you develop better forms of articulation. This, in turn, allows you deeper access to your feelings.


Moon Semi-Sextile Mercury


You learn the hard way that others don't always understand what you say.  Your expressions do suffer because the analogies you make and references you use are often so personal that others aren't privy to your point of view.  As you learn to think about other people's point of reference as you speak, you simultaneously learn to examine and clarify your own feelings and responses to life.  This process creates a path of self-knowledge.


Mercury in Growth Aspect to Saturn


You worry about things that can't affect you and that don't matter.  If you are patient and use time correctly life improves. You will need to study your mental habits to see how you limit your options unnecessarily.  Slow progress is vastly different than no progress. Your growth in life gains speed when you are able to separate real limits from your fears.


Mercury Semi-Sextile Saturn


Little things that go wrong can upset your inner equilibrium. You have to work harder than most to get the truly important details of your work and projects in central focus.  You are easily led into dealing with less than significant areas of life which take time away from your major concerns.  Honesty, calmness and trial and error searching puts you on the right track.


Mars in Growth Aspect to Pluto


There is a compulsive side of your personality and you have some learning to do in this life connected with how your energy operates. Knowing when to stop or start a project is not so much a matter of timing as it is a matter of how to invest your energy.  You can avoid something you want, thinking it will require too much from you, or, start on some project, then go overboard trying to bring it to fruition.  Once involved in a project it is necessary to see how to regulate your energy as you do become so obsessed with the outcome or so addicted to the process that you lose sight of your general well being.


Mars Quincunx Pluto


You suffer by having a picture of just what needs to be done and how it is to be accomplished.  This can cause you to be controlling and argumentative.  When you feel the weight of the responsibilities that you have taken on or when you feel lonely and isolated, then, you are ripe for personal growth.  Your desire, manner of expression, and the way you use energy will have to be changed - to be less compulsive, less forceful, so you are able to achieve greater accomplishment and more personal happiness.




There is another dimension to your astrology chart.  This has to do with planets being the same distance from the celestial equator.  When both planets are on the same side of this plane there are called parallel.  When the planets are the same distance but on opposite sides of the celestial equator they are referred to as being contra-parallel. Both of these aspect activate your ability to organize and reorganize some aspect of your life.


Jupiter Parallel Uranus


You have an undercurrent of energy in everything that you do. You have the ability to see opportunity as it appears and an artistic skill in acting on your insights.  Your musical perception and sense of the world can give you help in obtaining a career as well as helping you keep one step ahead of others in the art of communicating.


Venus Contra-Parallel Ascendant


You have the ability to create harmony and your basic artistic vision colors your interactions with others.  You have a social side of your personality and have the capacity for genuine graciousness.  A passive quality can contribute to you spending time resting on your past accomplishments.  Stay energized and self regulating without relying on others for your motivation, then you are most successful.


Pluto Contra-Parallel Ascendant


You have the capacity for tremendous determination.  At the depth of your drive to do things your own way may indeed be the fear of other people.  Relationships are a real chance to refine your method of assertion and character.  Getting balanced with others may be quite difficult for you but is the path to personal happiness.  Fear of abandonment may be one of the driving forces in your way of relating to people.




The Moon's North Node is an all encompassing and instructive point of synthesis in the chart; we could easily start or end our analysis with this one single factor.  Because this indicator is so all inclusive it most shows your karmic direction in life. The sign placement of your North node points to your destiny. When your actions, interests, and values are structured by this position, your general sense of personal well being improves. The house placement of the North Node of the Moon indicates or points to an area of life, an arena of experience.  By confronting, even augmenting this arena you can inadvertently improve every aspect of your life.  By dealing with issues connected to the North Node placement in your chart your general character strengthens and refines.


North Node of the Moon in Virgo


Be as specific as you can be and avoid retreat into escapist fantasies. The more detailed you are in life the faster you learn.  The more factual and analytic you are the quicker life moves forward.  Real progress is incremental, where you recognize, catalogue, and can replicate, every step of the journey.  The more you adopt a procedural and non-emotional approach to your projects the further and faster you move toward achieving your goals.  Be practical and patient.


North Node of the Moon in Virgo and in the Ninth House


Truth and the quest for truth are almost always a solitary discipline for you.  You are easily entangled in conversations and cultural affectations in your environment.  Study and explore the world rather than  enmesh yourself in others' problems.  You help others in the long run through improving your own mind. Know what is truly important in life.

                               THE  ASPECTS



                  ***Basic classification of aspects***


Hard or difficult aspects.  - Semi-square, Square, Sesquiquadrate, and Opposition.  These are the aspects that help us recognize the ingredients in our personality that need changing.


Easy or soft aspects.  - Trines and Sextiles.  These are the aspects that express our talents and skills.


Growth aspects.  - Semi-sextiles and quincunx.  These are aspects that give us opportunity to grow.  They indicate long term development of some key aspect of your personality and behavior for this life time.


Power aspects.  - Conjunctions, Parallels, and Contra-parallels. These are the aspects that show energy, force, reorganization and transformational ability.



              ***Circumstances  of  the  planets  by  aspect***


Afflicted  -  A  planet  is  called  afflicted  when  it  has  only  hard  (difficult)  aspects.    These  planets  represent  our  greatest  challenges  and  our  more  promising  areas  of  growth.


Unafflicted  -  A  planet  is  unafflicted  when  it  is  not  limited  to  only  hard  aspects.    This  can  mean  that  the  planet  has  no  aspects,  has  only  easy  aspects,  or  has  both  hard  and  soft  aspects.


Well  Aspected  -  A  planet  is  called  well  aspected  when  it  has  no  hard  aspects.    This  shows  ease  of  expression  and  a  certain  ability  to  bring  the  ingredients  symbolized  forward  into  life  with  little  or  no  conflict.
