Chapter 1: GeneralCharacteristics

 

     Your fundamentalneeds, values, and orientation towards life are symbolized by the fourastrological elements. Each person has their own unique balance of these fourbasic energies: fire (warmth, inspiration, enthusiasm), earth (practicality,realism, material interests), air (social and intellectual qualities), andwater (emotional needs and feelings).

 

    Your "elementalmake-up" is described below. Remember that most people are"unbalanced" or lopsided, and if you are lacking or deficient in acertain element (or elements), it simply means that you need to consciouslydevelop that aspect of yourself to learn to appreciate and/or to work harder inthat dimension of life.

 

    Sometimes we overvalue theelement that we are least endowed with, sensing it as a lack within ourselves,but more often we neglect or ignore it. The qualities described below will be reiteratedand explained in more detail in the following chapters.

 

Fire Element is Strong (F,E,A,W Scores = 27,7,4,11)

 

   You are a fiery individual ,filled with tremendous passion and zest for life. You thrive in situationswhere there is energy, excitement, action, movement, dynamism and drama. Alongwith your exuberant vitality and enthusiasm, you have an acute ability tovisualize future possibilities, and an almost childlike faith in "whatcould be". Unless you have a vision, an aspiration, or a wonderful dreamto believe in, you are not completely happy. You have a great sense of themajesty, the grandeur, and the adventure of life but tend to overlook the magicin small things and everyday life.

 

    You also have a strong urgeto express yourself spontaneously and creatively, without conforming to othersways or conventions. Personal freedom and independence are very important toyou and you resist being "owned" or dictated to. Secretly you are aptto feel that you are special, charmed, somehow above or outside the realm of"ordinary" people and mundane life.

 

    You have a strong ego andcan be excessively proud, dominating, or concerned with self. You have apositive, vigorous, active approach to life, and forcing your intentions anddesires upon circumstances feels more natural to you than flowing with or justallowing life to unfold. Essentially you are very "yang" (assertive,competitive, outgoing, direct), and the "yin" qualities of passiveacceptance, receptivity, gentleness, and subtlety do not come easily to you.You inspire others with your generous spirit, your idealism, spark, confidence,and joie de vivre, but you can also irritate them with your self-centerednessand your insistence on expressing yourself freely without regard for others'needs or opinions. You also have trouble being content in the present and would benefit by learning toconsciously pacify your restlessness and developing the qualities oftranquility and peacefulness.

 

 

 

 

Chapter 2: How You Approach Life and How You Appear ToOthers

 

    The following is adescription of your basic stance towards life, the way others see you, the wayyou come across, the face you show to the world. In Chapter 3 you will readabout the "The Inner You: Your Real Motivation", which describes thekind of person you are at heart and where your true priorities lie. Read thischapter and the next one and compare them - there may be significantdifferences between them, in which case "the inner you" may not shinethrough and others are in for some surprises when they get to know you at amore than superficial level. This chapter describes the costume you wear, yourrole in life, while Chapter 3 talks about the real person inside the costume.

 

Sagittarius Rising:

 

    High-spirited,enthusiastic, and exuberant, you love adventure, change, exploring newterritory, and are not happy confined to the same safe, familiar, secure littleworld all the time. You have a strong restlessness and yearning for somethinggreater than anything you've yet experienced, and you often live in your dreamsand visions for the future. You tend to believe that the grass is greenersomewhere else and you like to keep moving, either literally or figuratively.Idealistic and optimistic, you always expect something better ahead. You loveto have a goal, something to aim for, but once you achieve it you are on tosomething else. You are ever on the lookout for new opportunities and you are agambler, willing to take risks and to break new ground. The possibility ofdiscovering something new is what makes life interesting for you. You havegreat faith in life and bounce back quickly from disappointment and failure.

 

    Freedom-loving andindependent, you cannot tolerate being caged for very long, and friends andloved ones must respect your need for freedom of movement. Binding commitmentsand responsibilities often weigh heavily upon you and you may resist"growing up" and taking on the limitations of adult life.

 

    You are friendly andoutgoing and have a great sense of fun and playfulness. You are alsophilosophically minded and often quite outspoken about your convictions andbeliefs. Sometimes you get carried away with your enthusiasm of the moment andyou tend to exaggerate. You are often a big talker, a big maker of promises,and you are usually pretty convincing. You do everything in a big way, agenerous way. You like to have the best, and you heartily dislike stinginess,littleness, or pettiness. Your vision is always large. You are able to perceivethe big picture, general patterns and principles, and are well suited topolitics, business, higher education or religion.

 

    Other people see you as agood sport and a good friend, but one who is not always consistent and dependable.You may also be seen as a wise person since you do not get bogged down inpettiness and trivialities, and are able to communicate a larger way of lookingat situations, one that opens up new potentials. You are a person who believesin miracles, grace, or just plain good luck, someone who never gives up onlife, and you inspire and encourage others to keep looking forward.

 

Mercury Trine Asc.:

 

     Bright, alert, quickof tongue and/or of movement, there is a youthfulness about your manner and appearanceregardless of your chronological age. You also always appear busy and active,and somewhat restless. You need mental stimulation from your environment, oryou will rapidly get bored.

 

Uranus Trine Asc.:

 

     You appear to beliberal and open-minded. Anything new, innovative, unusual, or off the beatentrack arouses your interest. You infuse your environment with enthusiasm, newlife and excitement. Though not intentionally disruptive, you do enjoystartling or waking people up a bit.

 

 

 

 

Chapter 3: The Inner You: YourReal Motivation

 

Ascendant inSagittarius and Sun in Leo:

 

    Although you can appearfreewheeling, independent, and, at times, inconsistent (as mentioned in theprevious chapter), at heart you are very loyal and constant. You possess acertain steadiness and firmness of will that may not be obvious to others untilthey get know you well.

 

Sun in Leo:

 

    Proud and intenselyindividual, you really want to stand out, to be the very best you can be, andto be recognized and appreciated for your unique contributions. Doing somethingwell and being respected for it is extremely important to you, and you cannottolerate being in the background, taking orders from others, or being"just one of the team". You must put your personal stamp on whateveryou do, and direct your own course in life. You need to have a place where youcan shine, express yourself creatively, and be the one in charge.

 

    You have big dreams and thedetermination, spirit, vitality, and enthusiasm to bring them into being. Youalso have a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colorful, andextravagant.

 

    For you it is true that"all the world's a stage" and you secretly (or perhaps not sosecretly) desire to be the Star or Hero in the play. You want to be great, andto receive the love and applause of an adoring audience, even if the"audience" is just one other special person. You need someone tobelieve in you and your dreams. Though you appear radiantly self-confident andindependent, you are actually very much dependent on the affirmation, love, andrecognition of others. You cannot bear being unnoticed or unappreciated.

 

    You also lovewholeheartedly and generously and really know how to make the person you lovefeel special. You love the magic of "being in love" and know how tokeep the romance alive in your relationships. You are also immensely loyal andwill defend your loved ones and stand by them to the end - as long as they neveroffend your pride or betray your trust. However, you like to be the strong onein a relationship and you really do not share the leading role very easily.Ideally you need to find a person who is as strong-willed as yourself, but whowill not try to dominate or compete with you.

 

    Your strengths are yourzest and love for life, your creative power, and your warm and generous heart.Your primary fault is your tendency to be very egocentric, so concerned withthe impression you are making and with your own creative self-expression thatyou forget there is another, larger world that does not revolve around you.

     You crave intenseexperiences and are attracted to aspects of life that are strange,unfathomable, or taboo.

You also have a strong interest in socialpower and the role that money and economics play in people's lives.

 

Sun Trine Jupiter:

 

    You have big aspirationsbut do not struggle or labor to achieve them. Your self-confidence and innerharmony attract success and benefits to you in an almost magical way. Youroptimism and cheerful generosity also win you many allies and successes inlife.

Often you feel that you are somehow differentfrom other people and outside the mainstream of society.

    You always seem to find theright words to verbalize your feelings, especially in regard to love andfriendship. You also have a keen sense of beauty and probably appreciate art,music or poetry.

 

Sun Conjunct Mercury/Pluto

 

    Your deep comprehension andgood powers of concentration give you the ability to judge matters wisely andprudently. You are a keen observer and also can be a persuasive speaker. You liketo be in control, but need appreciation and recognition for your efforts.

Your active mind isalways buzzing with ideas and you find it difficult sometimes to relax, slowdown, or take time to reflect and replenish yourself. You tend to live onnervous energy. You can accomplish much in short bursts but projects thatrequire long-term commitment, stamina, and steady, persistent effort are noteasy for you. You often scatter your energies into so many directions andactivities at once that you cannot finish or follow through on some of them.You need variety, change, and mental challenges.

 

    You have a sharp and eagermind, and you enjoy games and competitions that have a mental component. Youlike to match wits with someone else.

 

    You often achieve yourdesires by your verbal skill, your ability to speak clearly, vigorously, andconvincingly for what you want. Your drive and energy is more mental thanphysical. You use your wit, intelligence, communication skills, socialsophistication, and awareness to achieve your goals.

 

Mars in 6th house:

 

     You expect to workhard for anything you accomplish and you have no patience for people who don'tpull their own weight. Work is a passion for you at times, and you pushyourself too hard. You can be too demanding of the people you work with also.

 

     If your energy is not invested in a job orcareer, you can become a fanatic about your health, and you may exercise or"work out" vigorously and perhaps excessively.

 

Mars Quincunx Saturn:

 

     You frequently meet atremendous amount of resistance whenever you want to assert yourself in adecisive way, or do something just for yourself. This resistance comes fromwithin (in the form of self-doubt, fear, or a heavy sense of responsibility toothers), as well as from practical and circumstantial limitations. Especiallywhen initiating a project or acting independently, you may tell yourself thatyou aren't really prepared, or that you aren't good enough (yet), and you put alot of pressure on yourself. Despite the obstacles, setbacks, or lack ofsupport you encounter, you can accomplish a lot in a patient, steady fashion.However, you're apt to aim too low, and not realize how much you are trulycapable of.

 

     Try to recognize thatyour do not have to justify your existence or prove your worth by your accomplishments.

    You have a powerful willand when you want something, you pursue it passionately and relentlessly untilyou achieve it. You may be so driven by your desire that you lose allobjectivity. You often become compulsive, even obsessed, with doing orachieving something, no matter what the costs or how hard you must work for it.Your forcefulness may be veiled or subtle, for often you do not reveal yourreal aims and intentions to others until they cross you. Intense powerstruggles and relationships with a strong dominance/submissiveness theme arelikely. You have enormous energy reserves, and are capable of extraordinaryeffort and great achievement if you use your energies for constructivepurposes.

 

Mars Opposition Saturn/Neptune

 

    Because of your somewhatnegative attitude, you could feel listless a great deal of time and are likelyto become physically inactive. You tend to become easily overwhelmed; yourobjectives tend to be unclear, and you question your ability to attain them.

 

Moon Square MC:

 

     You may have toovercome something in your background or personal past in order to achieve yourlong-range goals and ambitions. Sometimes you're apt to feel pulled in two differentdirections -- what others expect of you or what you need to do to progress,versus what your old conditioning or your emotional predisposition would haveyou do. Overcoming the pull of the past is the key.

 

 

 

 

Chapter 7: Growth andExpansion: Areas That You Enjoy

 

Jupiter inSagittarius:

 

     Your strength lies inyour ability to see the whole, rather than only the parts which compose it. Youhave a deep need to explore the world and to develop your own philosophy of lifeand sense of personal meaning. You vacillate between being open-minded andtolerant of differing views, and being dogmatic or overly zealous about yourown viewpoint.

 

Jupiter in 1st house:

Saturn inCapricorn:

 

     You have a great capacityfor self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. You are capable of hardwork and persistent labor, but you may lack joyfulness and the ability to play.You often feel burdened by life's demands and responsibilities, and may envythose who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal ofpersonal effort.

 

     There is a veryjudgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of yourself which may inhibit you agreat deal. You must avoid becoming heavy and cynical, or becoming a rather callous,sophisticated adult whose practicality and realism squeeze out the playful,imaginative side of life.

 

Saturn in 1st house:

 

      You have amature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life which colors everything youdo. Caution and realism are your virtues though you limit yourself at times bybeing too careful, shy, or fearful, and not believing in yourself enough orbeing assertive when necessary.

Saturn Opposition Mercury/Mars

 

    A deep thinker, you havegood powers of concentration. But you think slowly and take your time makingdecisions, which are likely to be based on practical and economical methods.Having little to say, you prefer to talk about serious or sad things.

The direction you need tofollow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is alsodescribed.

 

N. Node in Virgo:

 

    Your natural instinct,especially when under stress, is to passively flow along with whatever iseasiest, not clearly analyzing or assessing your situation and perhaps eventrying to escape seeing your situation clearly by indulging in fantasies,intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused andundefined (at least in certain areas) are ways you cope with stress. You alsohave trouble setting boundaries and saying no.

 

    Your path of developmentlies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, developingtechnical and practical skills that will enable you to function moreefficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is alsoimportant.

 

N. Node in 9th house:

 

    The arena you are mostlikely to wrestle with these issues is in developing a personal vision orphilosophy of life, whether this be through religious or philosophical studies,a broadening education, or visiting and drawing upon the wisdom in distantlands or cultures. Cultivate the qualities described above in this endeavor.Long distance communication and involvement with foreigners is likely to besignificant to you.

 

    The following are specificactivities that will support you in your growth. These may or may not feelnatural to you, and often there is some feeling of resistance or initialawkwardness about doing these things, but they are important on your path towholeness.

 

N. Node Conjunct Venus:

 

    Give and receive affection,love, and pleasure (especially using the qualities described previously). Learnto respond to, appreciate, and create beauty, art, harmonious surroundings andrelationships. Be aware of aesthetics and do things in a gracious, pleasingmanner.

Chapter 10: GenerationalInfluences: Your Age Group

 

    In this chapter we willdiscuss characteristics and traits of your generation. Of course, you may notshare all of the characteristics of your generation, but you are greatlyaffected by the tone that is set by your generation.

 

    The first topic is"The Subconscious and Emotional Drive of Your Age Group". In thissection we will describe a deeply felt urge, even compulsion, of your agegroup. This deeply felt drive comes to the surface with great force and power,and consequently leaves in its wake considerable upheaval and change. The secondtopic is "The Ideals and Illusions of Your Age Group", that describesthe dreams, fantasies, and spiritual aspirations of your age group. The thirdand last topic is "What is New and Different in Your Age Group",which describes areas in which your age group tends to be innovative,inventive, unusual, and also where it may be unstable and unreliable.

 

    The characteristicsdescribed below may affect a group of people for anywhere from a few years toabout 30 years. There are one or more different astrological factors describedin each of the three sections below.

 

The Subconscious and EmotionalDrive of Your Age Group

 

Pluto in Virgo:

 

    You are part of a 15 yeargroup of people that are driven by the need to find an ethical standard and aclear sense of what is right and what is wrong. There is a subconscious driveto straighten out all the world's evils and create a world of perfect order.There is a feeling of repulsion to anything ugly, dirty, or grotesque.
