                   Ecological Awareness Report

     This report is designed to help you learn more about your own, inner nature; to appreciate nature around you; and to know what you can do to protect the environment in the best way possible, given your uniqueness as an individual.

     In this report, your planets in the signs indicate your inner nature and the natural species and phenomena with which you, as an individual, have an affinity. Your planets in the houses indicate the activities which you would enjoy, pertaining to nature. Your planetary aspects indicate the environmental causes where you would have a particular talent, and where you could express yourself in a positive way towards helping to preserve nature.

Chapter 1: The Sun

Sun in Leo:

     The animal traditionally corresponding to the sign of "Leo" is the lion, and its "planet" is the sun. Lions do react to the daylight by roaring, sometimes several at a time. They are, therefore, very energetic. However, they are not malicious because they catch only as much as they need to eat. As a Leo person, you are energetic, generous, and powerful, but never unkind.

     A flower which has the qualities of your sign is the sunflower. It thrives in the sun, to produce large, cheerful, generous flowers despite not needing to use very much soil nor water. The flowers are a deep, yellow color resembling the sun or the color gold or the color of a lion.

     Like the sun, you attract attention and give much warmth in return. Leo rules the heart, a very central important part of the body, and the heart represents life, self-expression, and kindness, and you certainly have an abundance of these.

Sun in the 6th House

     You are very good at keeping track of precise details, and you would be able to make a valuable contribution by keeping species lists of the flora and fauna observed in a particular location, along with the dates, times, and conditions of when they are seen. You are concerned about preventive health care, and you would be good at instructing people as to which plants and herbs to grow for their individual health needs. You might be interested in beekeeping, because you would be fascinated with the exacting, delicate work of the bees in a hive.

Chapter 2: The Moon

Moon in Virgo:

     You are neat and clean and particular about the food you eat. You are good at nurturing yourself and keeping healthy. You are particular about detail and a good housekeeper. You are hardworking, like a "busy bee". When worker bees make honey, they first partially digest the nectar which has been gathering from flowers. Then they spread it out in the hive, where it becomes partially dried, so that it becomes honey. They eat some of it, and store the rest in honeycomb, so they work very hard in their hives to have the best quality food. People could be healthier, if they learned good habits from the bees - and from those with their moon in Virgo.

Moon in the 6th House

     You would enjoy cooking with organically grown foods, and teaching others in a nurturing way how tasty, as well nutritious, this food can be. You would do well to take a course on this, with kind, knowledgeable people. You could have a very positive influence on other people's long-term health, besides your own. You might like to have your own garden, where you could grow nutritious vegetables, and perhaps a herb garden as well. You might also be good at nurturing small birds and animals back to health.

Moon Conjunct Mercury:

     You are good at speaking up for the protection of wildlife habitat. You would speak nurturingly to small pets, and communicate caring to them. You understand what good caretakers mother birds are when they have to make many trips back and forth to their nest to feed their young.

Moon Square Jupiter:

     You would be capable of concrete action to inspire people to care about the environment and nurture its creatures. You would feel better if you got outdoors and planted a garden and looked after it, as you have plenty of energy. You are able to acquire wealth, but you would be far more fulfilled if you directed your energy towards the care of nature, rather than personal gain.

Moon Opposition Saturn:

     You may at first tend to be depressed about how the environment seems not to be sufficiently nurtured. You may be worried that it is too sparse to provide for the future needs of people. However, once you become more emotionally detached, your concern can be a positive motivation towards doing something significant about it. You could, in the long run, do work which would help to preserve the environment for a long time. Even if it is hard work, this work is necessary for the survival of humans and other species, and there is much which can be done.

Moon Conjunct Neptune:

     You have great empathy for small creatures. You understand the importance of protecting the food chain, because you see how all parts of nature are connected and dependent upon each other. You would be very good at caring for fish and creating the proper environment for them, either in a pond or an aquarium. You might be interested in how water can be purified by using plants. You would be very concerned, in general, about protecting all living things from pollution.

Chapter 3: Mercury

Mercury in Virgo:

     You excel in very precise, detailed work. You like to have a clean orderly environment. You are very practical and analytical.

     If you have ever watched a bee in a flower garden, it goes to each and every flower to get nectar; it does not overlook one. The same kind of detailed work can be found in the web of the orb-weaver spider. Their web has many spokes going out from the center, and many circles joining all of the spokes, like a very intricate solar system or astrological chart wheel. It can make one of these detailed webs in less than a day, as the webs have the practical purpose of catching insects for their food.

Mercury in the 6th House

     You are very bright intellectually, and could master such subjects as biology or possibly veterinary medicine. You are very precise about details and have an excellent memory. If you kept lists of what birds or plants you observed in particular areas, they would be very dependable and accurate. Because you value cleanliness, you would be good at promoting a clean environment. You take good care of your health, and you might also enjoy teaching others about organic foods, herbs and vitamins.

Mercury Square Jupiter:

     You could benefit from physical activity outdoors, such as long nature walks, where you could both learn and teach about the various species. You might even enjoy traveling to other countries and exploring the wilderness there, especially on an educational venture. You need to work out your perception of nature, as to whether you believe in an evolutionist or creationist theory. Once you do this, you could write about your thoughts and discoveries on the subject and have them published.

Mercury Opposition Saturn:

     You would be able to keep good, accurate records even in situations where this is difficult, such as counting the number of butterflies or birds while they are in flight. You would have the ability to check and re-check the data, by using a different method each time. Your ability to be cautious and not make a mistake would be valuable if you were testing drinking water samples, because you would take additional samples from different locations in order to get a more accurate measure.

Mercury Conjunct Neptune:

     You would be a good nature writer because you are very imaginative, and you have a psychic connection with small creatures. You could teach others how to empathize with their needs. You would be concerned about the cleanliness of the waterways and the protection of fish from pollution and you might, therefore, study marine biology.

Chapter 4: Venus

Venus in Virgo:

     You are concerned about personal hygiene and cleanliness, and you work hard at having a neat appearance. Birds do this too, and it is called "preening". They remove any dirt or parasites from their feathers using their bill, and then they apply oil to their feathers from a special gland. They preen all of their feathers except their head feathers, which their bills cannot reach, but they can scratch their head with their foot. Mammals are also very meticulous about cleanliness and appearance, as anyone knows who has a cat ; cats lick their fur with their rough tongues.

Venus in the 6th House

     You are interested in preserving the land and keeping it clean and pure. You might enjoy growing organic vegetables and using natural compost to enrich the soil. You would do well in business because you are very practical, or you might pursue agricultural or environmental studies. You might enjoy keeping bees and having fields of clover. You would be kind to animals, large and small. You would have a talent for creating beautiful work environments, such as having plants and nature art in offices.

Venus Square Jupiter:

     If you struggle and use your willpower, you could succeed in getting your nature art published, or in running a business of selling others' art. You are interested in finding solutions to the problem of having developments taking over the available farmland and green spaces. You realize that people need to stop having an over-indulgent lifestyle, because of the effect of many people doing this on the environment. You could initiate meditations on nature and the preservation of it, and even get a large group to meditate on the preservation of the planet.

Venus Trine Uranus:

     You could be very successful in bringing about a beautiful, prolific, community flower garden, with colorful blooms which would attract butterflies. You would be successful as an astrologer, and you could use the funds raised from this for the cause of saving the earth. You would do well in a computer business, where you could get an environmental group together or sell recordings of birds calls and other nature sounds.

Venus Conjunct Neptune:

     You have a spiritual link with animals and nature, and you could express this through music or art. You could be very good at painting or photographing wildlife and nature scenes. You would have an interest in how marshes and water pants are important for filtering the water and keeping the land from becoming polluted. You might like to have a pond in your backyard with plants, fish, turtles and frogs. It would be a beautiful, peaceful place where you could escape.

Chapter 5: Mars

Mars in Leo:

     You are very self- confident, and you assume that your natural position is that of the leader. In nature, the queen of the ant colony does not have to attend to anything other than egg-laying, and the worker ants feed her.

     You are able to use the fiery power of the sun to get others to submit to your authority. There are small ants called "fire ants", which bite their prey, and if the bites are exposed to sunlight, the power of their sting becomes even more potent. Similarly, the effect of poisonous plants such as wild parsnip and poison ivy are intensified in their effect on humans by exposure to sunlight, causing what is called "phytophotodermatitis".

Mars in the 5th House

     You are active and would enjoy getting children out on hikes or in a canoe. They would have a good time and learn to appreciate nature by having positive experiences with it. You could promote or sell nature art. You could also get adults to go out and have fun in the outdoors, in order to keep fit and get more enjoyment out of life. You would work hard for what is best for children, such as having enough outdoor playgrounds and recreation centers.

Mars Square Uranus:

     At first, you would be frustrated with people who use motor boats, jet-skis or noisy airplanes, because you can see how they are disturbing the natural habitat. However, you will be happier when you take constructive action to stop this problem, and you have the willpower , intellectual ability, and quickness to be successful. You realize that you have to take risks, but it is for a good cause, and you are quite able to land on your feet.

Chapter 6: Jupiter

Jupiter in Sagittarius:

     You benefit from travel to faraway lands, and you are able to adapt to new environments very readily, because of your very positive philosophy. You are good at teaching others to be cheerful, no matter what the circumstances.

     There are many birds, wildflowers, and insects which have benefitted by following human migrations, for example, from Europe to North America. One such species is the house sparrow which was first introduced in New York from England in 1850, to control insect pests. However, these birds multiplied very rapidly, because they were able to get plenty of grain, which was used for horse-feed. By 1900, they were the most common bird in North America, but their population stabilized once the automobile was introduced, because then there were fewer horses. However, these birds sing and cheer people up, even in the cold of winter.

Jupiter in the 9th House

     You could study or teach such subjects as biology or environmental sciences at a university. You would be interested in how nature is viewed in different cultures, and how different philosophies have evolved which could inspire people to get back in touch with nature. You have a great love of the outdoors, and would enjoy long trips, hikes and expeditions, horseback riding, or cross-country skiing. You are a good fund raiser, and would enjoy benefiting outdoor projects. As a spiritual leader, you would have a talent for connecting people with nature and its abundance. You could inspire others to believe that the environmental problems can be overcome.

Jupiter Square Neptune:

          You would enjoy getting outdoors in the quiet wilderness or going on long canoe trips. You could publish articles and photographs of your adventures. You would be good at getting out there and actually creating a better habitat for the fish. You could teach others about marine biology out in the field. You could benefit by practicing yoga, and if you kept at it, you could become a very inspired yoga teacher, who could awaken others to their sensitivity towards nature and their oneness with it.

Chapter 7: Saturn

Saturn in Pisces:

     You have a rare ability to bring artistic inspiration into the practical realm. You may be able to develop musical, artistic, or creative literary talent into a saleable form, and, thereby, reach others with the emotions and compassion which they might miss otherwise. You would be a good yoga teacher, helping others develop their meditative skills.

     You are concerned about the preservation of water levels in nature, because water is necessary for the fish, and also for the species at the edge of the water, such as muskrats and frogs. You understand the cycles of life in the water, such as how a fish can be a predator of some species, but can itself be prey for something bigger.

Saturn in the 12th House

     You could become a serious nature photographer. You would be willing to wait for along time to get just the right picture. You would be concerned about the conservation of lakes and wetlands and fish. You would be a good manager of a quiet nature retreat, where people could meditate on their oneness with nature and its creatures.

Saturn Opposition Neptune:

     In the beginning, you may have a fear of environmental illness being caused by chemical pollutants, but, as you get more of the facts, you could take practical steps to prevent it. You could then be effective in bringing about better anti-pollution laws and teaching others how to de-toxify their bodies. You may, at first, wonder how your idealistic vision of nature can become a reality, but, in the end, it is your mystical awareness which will keep you inspired to do practical good.

Chapter 8: Uranus

Uranus in Taurus:

     On one hand, you want to be free and bring about new reforms, and on the other, you like to be steadfast and maintain that which is solid and dependable. The areas where you might be innovative would be in changing the economy and the way in which land is used, in such a way that many people could benefit. You may come up with an unexpected food source, based on harmony with mother nature, or you might promote the idea that living close to the land is the way to prevent the vibration which predisposes earthquakes.

Uranus in the 2nd House

     You are inventive in coming up with better uses for land, such as organic farming rather than the use of pesticides. You might be interested in eco-tourism, as a different kind of business. You could work together with a group of people to earn a living from sustainable agriculture -that is, growing things in such a way as to preserve the planet.

Chapter 9: Neptune

Neptune in Virgo:

     You were born at a time when practicality was replacing illusion, and awareness grew about the need to keep the lakes and rivers healthy. There was an introduction of chemical fertilizers and food additives and information about their long-term effects. The effect of chemicals in the water on the reproduction of fish became an issue.

Neptune in the 6th House

     You can do good, spiritual work by meditating on the health of people and of nature's creatures. You would take good care of pets or injured animals or birds, because you are both compassionate and practical. You are very concerned about the cleanliness of lakes and waterways, and you might want to work in this area.

Chapter 10: Pluto

Pluto in Cancer:

     You were born at a time when the population had increased, and society was faced with the question of how to feed the masses. There was a great emphasis on nurturing and caring for children. Families taught their children about how the animals and birds cared for their young, and many children had pets. Fiction stories with animals as the central characters were also popular. Because there were world struggles over nationalist sentiments, many homes were destroyed, and that was why a regeneration effort was made to preserve families, homes, and nature.

Pluto in the 5th House

     You are able to reach children in a mass way, such as by having a children's television program about nature. You are aware that children are our future, that they can regenerate the environment, and that they will have to. You could be very influential in protecting feline species, such as cats, tigers, lions, or leopards. You may be able to create nature art which would really get through to people with the message about preserving it, and you could also work with the mass media.
