YourSpiritual Path

Each of us has the potential to develop alongpsychic, intuitive and spiritual lines into the person who best suits ournatural gifts.  There areessentially three possibilities for how that development may occur:

1. Along the lines dictated by our family, peersand social milieu:  Most of us aretaught a set of rules as children. Some of those rules prove to be very useful, and some lessons prove tobe detrimental to our development, or at least not helpful.

2. Along the lines suggested by your own consciousmind:  Each of us is born with thecapacity to learn. The person inside us is the life and light of the mind.

3. The inevitable path is a combination of thesetwo possibilities.  No one candevelop precisely the way someone else dictates.  And no one can develop to suit individual desires with noconnection to the outer world.

When individuals develop along the lines reflectedby their astrological chart, the fullest expression of natural potential ispossible. The birth chart places you at the center of your world, and showsyour personal relationship to the Sun, Moon and planets. This is theastrological approach to spiritual understanding.  It is not limited to one religious sect or emotionalexpression.  The birth chartpresents the possibilities that vibrate within your soul, and indicates whichwill be easier or more difficult to manage.

Your goal or mission is indicated by your natalchart, but you fully understand it only if you are open to the inner spiritualvoice that is always present, and is truly your devoted life companion.

The best spiritual path is one that allows you touse your natural talents and skills. Sometimes your latent abilities willrequire training and practice to develop into spiritual tools. In this reportwe will consider a number of possibilities to help you get a sense of yourtalents, and how to develop and use them.

 

 

YourCreative Process

The Sun is the source of all physical life as weknow it. As children develop, Sun sign characteristics are colored by familycircumstances, cultural values, and other environmental influences. Yet wedevelop according to our own individual character IN SPITE of everything. Thevoice within us will not be denied. It cannot be eradicated and it never givesup.  When we are on an appropriatepath to our true spiritual destiny our inner voice is a gentle guide. When westray into less productive territory, the voice becomes more forceful. When weattempt to stifle this inner voice of character, it waits patiently for theproper moment and speaks again. The Sun sign reveals your conscious attitudetoward the external world. The following description of the Sun explores yournatural tendencies of mental style and action.

With the Sun in Cancer, you are primarily theFeeling type. If the sensation types say, "Just the facts, ma'am," thefeeling types say, "and how does it feel when that happens?" Feelingtypes evaluate situations on the basis of sentiment and may disregard logicalprocesses as ineffective with others and unsatisfying to themselves. They canthink logically, but may choose not to unless pressed by circumstances. You arenot an emotional disaster area. Rather you are prone to making judgments aboutthings, as in "I feel that is the best way to go." In order tomaintain the capacity for fair judgment, it is important to remove or reduceany psychological pollution in the work place caused by unkind, unsympatheticgossip, threatening behavior on the part of co-workers, or idle complainingthat is not backed by constructive suggestions. Feeling types can do well incareers that call for sensitivity in relating to other people. You have theability to bridge the gap between people, and therefore make good counselors,sales people, heads of families, members of the clergy - any job whereinterpersonal relationships are at the core of productive work. You have apsychic connection to the people and things around you. Often you can "getthe point" before other people even state it. You can over-react, butgenerally return to an acceptable level quickly.

How You ExpressYour Will

The Sun indicates your will power and itsdirection.  One of the reasons wecan identify Sun signs in other people is that they are often willful in theiractions.  Especially in childhoodthey are determined, demanding and rebellious against anything that does notconform to their will.  TheChildren of each Sun show us the power of will.  The information about your Sun sign focuses on the potentialexpression (and the associated undercurrents).

I will be self-indulgent (when I could take bettercare of myself). I will be frivolous (when I could be sensible). I will betouchy (when I could be appreciative of another's intention). I will be timid(when I could be expressive). I will be aimlessly dreamy (when I could directmy imagination into fruitful activity). I will procrastinate (when I couldallow things to flow in their normal channel) .

Your Sun is in the 7th house. The kidneys andbladder form a physical focus for tension. You need to constantly replenishbodily fluids, and should drink purified water to aid the cleansing process onthe physical level. Your consciousness focuses on relationships. It is throughinterchange with others that you find the grist for your spiritual mill. It isalso through close contact with others that you find your path. Rarely one tojourney alone, you seek partnership in all areas of your life.

Aspects of theSun

Common sense guides your daily activities, andthis is just as true of your spiritual path. You study and evaluate what youare taught, and you apply your spiritual values in your daily work and playactivities, not separating one from the other. Psychic perception is part andparcel of your daily life. These perceptions develop into sympathy in anordinary sense, and later into empathy for all living things. Psychic abilitymanifests easily once you allow it. You are able to cut through the delusion ofthe material world to the heart of your spiritual power. You comprehend thecontinuity of your psychic states as you move between spiritual planes, andeven between lives.

 

 

CoreBeliefs

Much of the pain and limitation we experience isthe result of being taught so-called "truths" that are incompatiblewith our core beliefs.  Family andsociety train us, and sometimes little is done to nurture our individualrealities.  It is up to you toidentify and nurture the values that are meaningful to you.  When the filtering process isundertaken, you uncover a "truth" that is unique to you.

The Moon

The Moon reflects the soul. It governs fluids inyour body and imagination in your mind. It generally represents a less conscious part of your being, andreflects the quality and flexibility of your memory.  If the Sun indicates the most likely course of yourspiritual path, the Moon indicates some of the qualities of the path itself.

With the Moon in Aquarius, your secondary mentalstyle is primarily the Thinking type. Your inner voice is logical - perhaps toological - and it can have an aloof, cold quality. You may find yourselfcritiquing your actions in a logical way when your emotional or other responsewas perfectly suited to the situation. The inner voice can be used to analyzeyour actions, but you will want to avoid becoming obsessive about every detailof your life. Internal logic is useful in school and other learning situations,as it serves to gather and organize large quantities of material quickly andneatly. A very real advantage of this inner thinking style is that you mayreach a conclusion intuitively or on the basis of feelings, and then examineits logical basis at your leisure. The ability to apply reason to your life -cognitive skills - can help you to be socially graceful while also serving yourpersonal desires. You also develop a cap0acity for delayed gratification ofsensual impulses that would not serve your best interests. If an impulse isevaluated and the logic holds up, then you can take action, knowing that youare not violating your internal intellectual.

Your typically aloof nature provides a logical,objective method for examining beliefs. You may argue about issues that revealillogical patterns or constructs, and you calmly and coolly change your ownmind.

Aspects of theMoon

The spirit within you expresses itself in theworld almost without effort. Others can see the values you hold most importantin your actions, hear them in your words, and therefore come to respect youropinions. Emotional and sexual intensity can separate you from spirit or bringyou closer, depending on your awareness of the richness of the interactions youexperience. The creative dynamics of two people merging is a profound source ofspiritual awareness if you get past the physical tension and emotionalconflict. This deepening of experience takes time. Emotional friction in youractivities can make you feel separated from your inner being. Use your physicalenergy to push through emotional barriers by finding ways to work out feelingswithout hurting others. Stick with each feeling until you understand how itmotivates you. Your strong intuition provides a rich source of information inyour relationships with others. You may eventually be capable of seeing intothe future quite clearly. Meetings with unconventional people can provide thespiritual contacts you need to make further progress. You can be a radicalwithout being irresponsible. Your less conscious mental style suits what youknow about yourself. You are more comfortable than most people with the paradoxof being conscious while operating from a less conscious base of spiritualstrength.

The FourthHouse

The sign on the Fourth House cusp indicates thefilter through which you view your core beliefs. It is the wellspring of allthe best, most creative and most powerful ideas you will have throughout yourlifetime.  It indicates the refrainthat the inner voice sings to you when you are sad or filled with joy, when youare pessimistic or optimistic, when you are afraid or when you are experiencingthe power of love in your life.

You have Aries on the Fourth House cusp. The mostpowerful expression of will comes through Aries, so it is essential that youunderstand your core beliefs and work through them at all times. When you areable to do this, you provide a charismatic presence and find that you can betremendously successful. When you don't - when you stray from your own beliefsand rely on others for direction - you stumble and perhaps even fail in yourefforts.

To gain a clearer understanding of your own corebeliefs, you need to explore the nature of Aries:

1. Learn what it means for you to express yourwill effectively. Anyone can be willful, like an infant demanding immediategratification. That style is effective for the baby, but not for you. Lookinside yourself for more appropriate expressions of will. Perhaps you focus onsports activities, a musical or writing talent, or the determination tocomplete scheduled work tasks on time. If you are focused, these tasks will beaccomplished cheerfully. You pay attention to the task and not the reward.

2. The creative urge is a strong component of yourcore beliefs. Whatever you are doing, you need to feel the energy of creativityflowing through your actions. Therefore all destructive acts are, and mustremain outside the focus of your will.

3. You have a profound understanding of the natureof unity and will seek it throughout your life. You will find ways to expressyour understanding of the universe to others, but first you seek to understandand trust it yourself.

4. You understand the spiritual warrior's path.You must lift yourself above the petty battles of the playground of life andseek to express your warrior qualities in the most idealistic way possible - increative service to others.

 

 

 

Communicationand Mental Development

Most of us were taught a set of "truths"in childhood and we were expected to accept them. To supplement what you havebeen taught by your parents, teachers, and the world at large, you need todevelop a spiritual learning style that works for you.  If you then decide to teach others, youmust develop communication skills that let you share these experiences clearlyand meaningfully with your students.

Training YourConscious Mind

Three factors contribute to your ability to trainyour conscious mind for spiritual development:

* the natural direction of your thinking

* training to take advantage of this direction

* training your nervous system, and learning torespond to it

Element ofMercury

The angel Raphael is associated with healing inthe Bible. The capacity for both companionship and healing forms the essence ofMercury's expression.

With Mercury in Cancer, your communication styleis primarily the Feeling type. Your healing style is well suited to theemotional distress around you. You can get into the flow of emotional energypatterns, identifying their disparate components, and guiding others towardcalmer, safer modes of expression. You work to illuminate whatever emotionalcondition you find, not surgically removing an emotional block, but helping tobring understanding so that the block relaxes on its own.

Training the conscious mind involves reasoning onthe conscious level.  SpiritualEducation teaches how to engage your intuitive function. Intuition can betrained.  Mercury reflects aspecific way for you to learn about intuition.  See the section on Uranus for more information on yourintuitive ability.

In the material world you nurture and are nurturedby siblings and acquaintances. On the spiritual level you will be able to moveothers toward their individual spiritual goals by nurturing their confidence.Intuition grows as you pay attention to the needs of others, consciously atfirst, and later on a psychic or intuitive level.

Your Mercury is in the 7th House. Partners are astrong component of your mental life. By talking with a trusted partner, youlearn both how to listen and how to speak. You develop sensitivity to others,and therefore sensitivity to your inner voice. Listen first, then determine howto communicate.

Mercury Aspects

The spirit within you expresses itself in theworld almost without effort. Others can see the values you hold most importantin your actions, hear them in your words, and therefore come to respect youropinions. Common sense guides your daily activities, and this is just as trueof your spiritual path. You study and evaluate what you are taught, and youapply your spiritual values in your daily work and play activities, notseparating one from the other. You become passionate when you discuss spiritualvalues. You don't like the feeling of anger, yet you allow it to arise when thepurpose is to convince yourself or others of a spiritual necessity. Yourpsychic senses are tuned so that you can talk about them clearly. You developthe capacity to tell other people the oddest impressions without causingdiscomfort. Powerful will stands behind your words, whether they focus onspiritual matters or mundane circumstances.

 

 

SelfEsteem and the Development of Spiritual Partnerships

The power of mind is unlimited, except by our ownthinking.  As you proceed along thespiritual path, self-esteem grows. Relationship with another person is a powerful force for the developmentof self-esteem and for spiritual growth.

Venus has been called the alter ego of theEarth.  Very close to the same sizeas the earth, Venus has an atmosphere inhospitable to human life.  The inner reaches of the unconsciousmind were long thought to be inhospitable as well.  Modern psychology has delved into the mechanism of mind, andreligious mystics have long studied the rocky terrain to be found within eachof us.  The consensus is that toevolve spiritually, we must first look at ourselves.  One way to do this is through relationship with others.

Romantic, business and other relationships alloffer us the opportunity to project our thoughts onto other people.  The evolutionary nature of arelationship allows us to explore our desires.  Then we can achieve spiritual connections that transcendsexual expression.

Right relationships between people provides innerawareness that helps us to mediate between personality and soul, betweenphysical life and higher consciousness. Only through fusion of these apparentlyseparate facets of your being can you approach true knowledge.

The Planet Venus provides indications about yourbest approach to spiritual partnerships.

With Venus in Taurus, your best approach tohealthy partnering is through the Sensation function. You love comfort. And youfind you are most comfortable when your somewhat scientific perspective matchesyour inner sense of propriety. You seek love in your life, not just to satisfyphysical urges, but also to create a space in which you can express yourintelligence.

You desire to establish a steady course on thepath of life, and this includes your approach to serious relationships of allkinds. You recognize the comfort and companionship, and you seek steadfastpartners. You are faithful, and are therefore conservative in your choice ofpartners.

Your Venus is in the 5th House. You oftenexperience strong physical attraction to other people, which could be mistakenfor romantic love, but which may also be the result of pure magnetism. You canincrease your knowledge very quickly through contact with any person who hasthis intense attraction for you.

Venus Aspects

Emotional and sexual intensity can separate youfrom spirit or bring you closer, depending on your awareness of the richness ofthe interactions you experience. The creative dynamics of two people merging isa profound source of spiritual awareness if you get past the physical tensionand emotional conflict. This deepening of experience takes time. Sexual passioncan be refined into spiritual ecstasy, but only if you are willing to put in thetime and effort to cultivate the deepest personal relationship with anotherperson. You achieve spiritual growth in a relationship that has a sexual spark,but that also has the promise of a long-standing spiritual intertwining ofminds and hearts. Your sense of duty makes you a stable factor in difficultsituations. Faithful completion of your accepted duties brings spiritualcontentment into your life. You tend to fall in love instantly, and you need todiscriminate between passing sexual fancy and something that can last"forever." As your intuition develops, you will be able to identifythe difference more clearly. When you "fall," that is a good time tomarshal all your respect for yourself and your partner, and to take things oneday at a time until you have forged a deep connection.

 

 

Doubt,Resistance, and the Development of Psychic Ability

The spiritual path has a number of potentialpitfalls. Some of the most treacherous of these lie within our own minds. Ourinnermost thoughts become a prison, trapping us within walls of our own making.These may be the karmic result of the past, or they may be the result of recentactions. There are several ways we cause our own difficulties:

1) Secrets - Privacy and secrets are part of thepicture. Children love the feeling of independence and power that comes with asecret. Problems only arise when the secrets we keep are detrimental toourselves or to others.

2) Doubts - When a situation causes you to doubt,it is largely because it is incongruent with what you have learned in the past.You want something new, but your unconscious is in turmoil. You feel naughty,anxious, reluctant, or undeserving. Because of what you have learned frompeople you trust or from what you have read, you doubt your own decision-makingability.

3) Resistance - Resistance is not all bad. Ifchange were too easy, we would have no stability. We could be talked into allsorts of things. What we need is a way to identify resistance for what it is,and then find ways to work with it.

Where your spiritual path is concerned, Neptunereveals how you handle secrets, how doubt arises for you, and also how toresolve resistance. One strategy involves your psychic ability.

Developing YourPsychic Ability

We use our psychic senses to understand the worldof the present. You can train yourself to be more aware of the nuances ofpsychic awareness, and Neptune indicates how you can develop this ability.  You will then connect with the earthand other people in new ways, and also confirm the significance of yourspiritual values.

The TwelfthHouse

The sign on the Twelfth House indicates how youcolor issues of doubt and resistance. It also reflects your most directapproach to your psychic insights.

You have Sagittarius on the Twelfth House cusp.Your precognitive powers develop through experience.  Including a contemplative practice in your daily routine canhone this skill.  If you ask yourdreams for guidance before sleep, you will find that you are well prepared forthe activities of the following day. Sometimes the messages are direct andclear.  Other times you will needto record your dreams and think about each character and symbol to discover themeaning.  It is very important foryou to have a direct connection to your inner being.

 

 

Deathand Transformation as Spiritual Processes

Pluto, Scorpio and the Eighth House in the birthchart deal with issues of death and transformation. On the spiritual path ashaman must undergo a death-like initiation in order to come into his or hershamanic powers. In our own lives we continually experience the death of oldways of being and the birth of new possibilities. Transformative events canteach lessons concerning your spiritual growth:

* They are signposts to indicate progress.

* They allow you to modify your behavior inpositive ways.

* They remind you to be gentle and kind withyourself.

* They remind you to accept yourself as you are,and to move forward.

* They remind you to support and encourage thechild within yourself, just as you would encourage another person.

The Eighth House in your chart defines themechanisms for change and self-acceptance that are most appropriate for you. Byunderstanding them you develop a sense of self and a set of behaviors that leadmore directly to your goal. You discard behaviors that no longer serve you inyour journey on the spiritual path.

Scorpio is the natural sign on the Eighth House,and the associated planet is Pluto. How appropriate that Pluto, mythological ruler of the underworld, shouldbe the planetary ruler of the Eighth House of death and transformation.

Yet Pluto attracts the living, though it cannothold on to them for long. So it is with life. We are attracted to one way ofdoing things, but we know that change is the only certainty in life. As we travelthe spiritual path, we find that each ending is the source of a new beginning,and that we often benefit from even the most traumatic events. By descendinginto the world of darkness and pain, we borrow a bit of Pluto's power, so thaton the next step along the path we are stronger and more courageous.

With Pluto in Virgo, your approach to death andtransformation is primarily through the Sensation function. Potentially moremater-of-fact about issues concerning death and change, you take transitions Instride for the most part. In the occasional instance when a death or changecatches you off guard, you may feel that you are unable to move out of onefeeling into another. When you feel stuck, you may need to gather your will totake some action. By focusing on simple practical details, you take steps, oneat a time, to lift the weight of feelings that have mired you temporarily.Generally you are able to handle the details of planning that are required whendeath or change occurs. You grasp the practical need for one thing to diebefore another may be born, for example. You also may be profoundly aware ofpast life events or the potential of a future lifetime, and you find practicalways to bridge the apparent gaps between.

You and many of your peers have the inquiringminds that have led to advances in medicine, the computer industry, and manyother fields. You manage to get great results with relatively little. Spiritualissues demand the same level of attention, and yield the same high qualityresults.

Pluto Aspects

You are able to cut through the delusion of thematerial world to the heart of your spiritual power. You comprehend thecontinuity of your psychic states as you move between spiritual planes, andeven between lives. Powerful will stands behind your words, whether they focuson spiritual matters or mundane circumstances. At some point in your life youmay feel that the gods or goddesses step in to impose changes on you. What youmake of these moments determines your spiritual future. Generally, whatevereffort you make will be well worth your time. You are sensitive to the urgingsof your inner voice, and you may even hear the voice within other people. Youwill experience visions and other forms of psychic awareness.

The EighthHouse

The sign on the Eighth House cusp indicates thephysical, mental, emotional, and spiritual approach you take when dealing withbirth, death and transformation.

You have Cancer on the Eighth House cusp. Morethan most people you connect to larger change processes. You may even be ableto feel the earth's rotation when you lie on the ground and watch the stars.Yet your most skillful interactions occur in small groups or in one-on-onesituations in which you use your nurturing abilities to smooth the path fortransformation.

You are able to see the light within other peopleand to nurture it. This spiritual capacity also works in your own life totransform your mundane ideas into spiritual aspirations. Because you are ableto stimulate the spiritual motives of other people, you make a strong leader,but you are not likely to be the most public figure. Rather, you quietly guideothers and share in their successes without stealing their glory. You seeyourself as part of the whole process that leads to success.

 

Planets in theEighth House

Mars in 8th House:

The focus of your spiritual persona is on issuesof death and transformation. You seek experiences that help you to understandyour own life and death cycle, with a desire to help others understand theirown. A second issue that affects your path is your own sexuality. Physicaldesires can be very strong, and you need to develop judgment in this area ofyour life. Long term relationships transmute physical sexual drives intospiritually ecstatic experiences that lift you to peak moments ofunderstanding.

Uranus in 8th House:

You tend to struggle along the spiritual path, butthen you may struggle with many of your interactions with other people. Yourforceful personality places you frequently "on the edge", and youbecome so accustomed to this that you are not happy when things are going toosmoothly. You can become a bit reckless, and need to pay close attention towhere you are going.

Spiritually you are attuned to the future throughyour intuition. You may see into the next day or next week, and you may be ableto discern patterns that extend into the next lifetime. You have senses thatreach out like feelers into the current of time. Often you know when majorchanges will occur for you or for people close to you. Sometimes the only thingyou can do with this knowledge is relax into the changes. Have you receivedmessages concerning the death of someone before or at the exact moment thedeath occurred?  Have you receiveddirect, clear messages or visitations from someone who has passed on?  Even if neither of these has happened,you may be specially attuned to the transitions from one phase of life toanother, and experience them before the actual event.

Pluto in 8th House:

One change begets another in your life. You seetransformation as a way of life, not an isolated event. Often you feel changescoming long before any outward signs are visible. You dwell in the underworldof the mind. Without training you are susceptible to the energies of peoplearound you, and you fall under their spells easily. With training you can castyour own spells, and certainly you can use your power to protect yourself. Youhave tremendous endurance - your ability to keep going means that you can charta spiritual path and make definite progress. You tend to be around whentraumatic events happen to other people, and you may have your own share ofdifficulties. These experiences place you in the ideal spot to help others, asyou know how they feel and you know just how to lift their spirits.

Eighth HouseAspects

Emotional friction in your activities can make youfeel separated from your inner being. Use your physical energy to push throughemotional barriers by finding ways to work out feelings without hurting others.Stick with each feeling until you understand how it motivates you. You becomepassionate when you discuss spiritual values. You don't like the feeling ofanger, yet you allow it to arise when the purpose is to convince yourself orothers of a spiritual necessity. Sexual passion can be refined into spiritualecstasy, but only if you are willing to put in the time and effort to cultivatethe deepest personal relationship with another person. You achieve spiritualgrowth in a relationship that has a sexual spark, but that also has the promiseof a long-standing spiritual intertwining of minds and hearts. At some point inyour life you may feel that the gods or goddesses step in to impose changes onyou. What you make of these moments determines your spiritual future.Generally, whatever effort you make will be well worth your time. Your strongintuition provides a rich source of information in your relationships withothers. You may eventually be capable of seeing into the future quite clearly.Meetings with unconventional people can provide the spiritual contacts you needto make further progress. You can be a radical without being irresponsible. Youtend to fall in love instantly, and you need to discriminate between passingsexual fancy and something that can last "forever." As your intuitiondevelops, you will be able to identify the difference more clearly. When you"fall," that is a good time to marshal all your respect for yourselfand your partner, and to take things one day at a time until you have forged adeep connection. Your independence of mind is both the most difficult mentalobstacle to overcome and the most refined mental state you can reach. Thisparadox occupies your thoughts and provides rich ground for spiritualdevelopment. You are quick to respond, and intuition helps you find the rightanswers. You may upset others with your enthusiasm. You are able to cut throughthe delusion of the material world to the heart of your spiritual power. Youcomprehend the continuity of your psychic states as you move between spiritualplanes, and even between lives. Powerful will stands behind your words, whetherthey focus on spiritual matters or mundane circumstances.

Generally,whatever effort you make will be well worth your time. You are sensitive to theurgings of your inner voice, and you may even hear the voice within otherpeople. You will experience visions and other forms of psychic awareness.

 

 

TheDevelopment of Intuition

Intuition is an ability beyond logicalthinking.  Through it you can considerfuture outcomes. In the Buddhist tradition, intuition is a mental ability,equal to intellect that can provide direct insight. In mathematics intuition isthe capacity to "guess" the answer to a problem, skipping the regularlogical processes.

Intuition is more than your inner voice.  Intuition is one of the methods bywhich you understand the world.  Itis a skill you can develop and use consciously. Intuition often surfaces duringmeditation. When the mind is quiet, then intuition can be heard.  Once trained, you can access intuitionby stopping your normal waking process and entering the calm that you havecultivated.

The planet associated with intuition isUranus.  With Uranus in Leo, yourintuition works best through the Intuitive function. Much of your inspirationfor your work comes from intuitive insight into future applications and resultsof your efforts. As your confidence in this ability to forecast trends, yougain the trust of the people around you. You focus your connection to the spiritualrealm through attention to potential future results of today's actions. You areinspired to be your best when you can foresee a positive outcome.

Any leadership role you undertake benefits fromyour ability to foresee difficult stretches and plan how to manage them. Youalso have a talent for making your peers or employees feel that they have comeup with the ideas themselves.

Your Uranus is in the 8th House. You tend tostruggle along the spiritual path, but then you may struggle with many of yourinteractions with other people. Your forceful personality places you frequently"on the edge", and you become so accustomed to this that you are nothappy when things are going too smoothly. You can become a bit reckless, andneed to pay close attention to where you are going.

TheMidheaven: Self-Awareness and the Use of Intuition

How can you use your self-awareness to accessintuition, a presumably involuntary, less conscious capacity?  To take the direct, conscious path ischallenging at best.  This methodonly works if you can consciously enter unconscious territory, and bydefinition, that territory is unconscious because you cannot access it directly.  You can rarely dive in intentionally.

You can wait for intuition to arise naturallywithout doing anything.  Or you canpractice meditation. It is fairly easy to learn and requires no particularphysical or mental skills, except the ability to focus the mind.

In addition, you have specific avenues, or pointsof focus, to aid you in the practice. The sign on the Midheaven indicates an area of the subconscious that youcan access through meditation, thereby identifying spiritual keys to yourdevelopment.  By going within, youfind the higher values most suited to your own path.

With the Midheaven in Libra, your self-awarenessand your path to self-realization are primarily through the Thinking function.

Beneath the subconscious desire to engage activelyin whatever attracts your attention, you find the desire to devote yourself tosomeone or something outside yourself. You may experience an initiation with ateacher to whom you devote yourself with single-minded faith and courage. Youwill benefit from practicing meditation, as you must clear your mind in orderto reach the profound state of consciousness where pure devotion arises. In theprocess of identifying a purer form of devotion you may appear fanatical inyour actions or statements. You work with the forces of nature, striving not tocontrol them but to flow with them naturally. The most positive attitude youcan cultivate is one of harmlessness - you seek to do no harm and to think noevil.

Your understanding of the nature of duality in theworld can be used to move past mere devotion to teacher. You will seek anattitude that engenders the fusion of body and soul, with its illumination ofthe ideals of unity in your spiritual life. You learn the meaning and value ofself-sacrifice, not because they are goals in themselves, but because they willlead you to an understanding of higher spiritual service on the group level.

To understand your own core beliefs is to live inharmony with your spiritual being. These beliefs emerge from the deepest partof your being. When studied, they provide the information for a lifetime ofself-exploration.

MidheavenAspects

Your less conscious mental style suits what youknow about yourself. You are more comfortable than most people with the paradoxof being conscious while operating from a less conscious base of spiritualstrength. You are more than your responsibilities. However, you are responsiblefor and responsive to the structure of your own life. Self-awareness can serveyour spiritual development by showing how you truly feel about the things youbelieve you must do. Your independence of mind is both the most difficultmental obstacle to overcome and the most refined mental state you can reach.This paradox occupies your thoughts and provides rich ground for spiritualdevelopment.

 

 

Karmaand Dharma

Perhaps no single principle of Asian religions hasfascinated us more than karma and its link to reincarnation. Karma refers tothe cause and effect relationship between what we do and the results we get.Our actions bring reactions, constructive and not so constructive. However,everyday feedback often comes from individuals who are no more clear abouttheir spiritual values than we are. So, what should you take seriously?

How does karma work in your life? Will it beplayed out in your next incarnation, or will you experience it in thehere-and-now?

Certainly you do not have to believe in karma orreincarnation to make progress along your spiritual path. However, if you doastrology can offer insight into what factors in the past may be influencingyou today. The following are suggestions concerning past influences. Think ofthem as relating to family and childhood experience, or you can relate them toyour past lives, or both.

With Saturn in Capricorn, you experience karma anddharma primarily through the Sensation function. Intelligent activity is guidedby practical considerations. Your perception of things through sight, touch andother ordinary senses is your first and strongest avenue to working with theworld. You are able to root out the facts from the body of writing about thepast. This uncanny ability may disregard the ephemeral trends of a period andfocus instead on the details of the material situation of the time. You arealso able to mobilize a massive quantity of data, and to organize it to suityour purposes. You sift through data to find the gems that point directly toyour point. Sometimes you have to discover the way to make your conclusionsmore meaningful to others who are less adept. Finally, you use information toguide your intelligence where future plans and goals are involved. You rarelymake long-term decisions based on emotion. It's not that you have no feelings,because you do. It's that you know feelings will change far more easily thanthe material foundation on which they rest.

You are industrious in every activity youundertake. You expect effective action from yourself and from others and can bea harsh or willful manager. Through experience you move from an egocentric attitudeto self-awareness. Then you advance much more quickly, both economically andspiritually.

Your Saturn is in the 1st House. Your lessons comefrom your sense of personal responsibility. You are ambitious in terms ofcareer and material things, and your ambition extends to your spiritual life aswell. As you transcend selfish ambitions, you engage instead in the pursuit ofhigher spiritual aspirations, which are firmly grounded in your ability tolearn from all your experiences.

Saturn Aspects

Your sense of duty makes you a stable factor indifficult situations. Faithful completion of your accepted duties bringsspiritual contentment into your life. Patience is the key ingredient tomanagement of change in your life. You have survived many previous changes, andyour spiritual future will doubtless include some more. You make progress inseclusion. You are more than your responsibilities. However, you areresponsible for and responsive to the structure of your own life.Self-awareness can serve your spiritual development by showing how you trulyfeel about the things you believe you must do.

 

 

 Transcendent Values

Behind what you know about yourself - behind allother considerations of spirituality, lie the transcendent values that are mostimportant to you.  These are thevalues you have worked to discover from among all the rules you have beentaught.  They are the reason youhave read books, studied with teachers, privately pondered and examined theevents of your life.  They are thefundamental principles that you believe will help you find fulfillment as ahuman being.  As such they are thesource of energy behind your self-awareness, the motivation of your spiritualsearch, and the principles that you apply to your dharma, or life path.

With Jupiter in Aquarius, your approach to andunderstanding of transcendant values is primarily through the Thinkingfunction. Regardless of your typical mental style, indicated by the elementoccupied by the Sun, you tend to process best through thinking, and through theskillful use of words. You aspire to more perfect expression, both withinyourself and in the social realm. Mental and spiritual training benefit you byproviding rigorous reasoning skills and by opening your heart to the intuitiveinformation that flows around you. Even when you have achieved fusion of heartand mind, you find that your mental process and expression focus on intellectand the thinking process. You may come to trust your intuition deeply, but yougain this level of confidence through testing your intuitive knowledgelogically and rationally. You understand that the cycle of cause and effectbegins on the mental plane, descends through the emotional realm, and manifestsin the physical world.

You may confuse social justice with spiritual values.They are not the same. Contemplative practice helps you to understand yourinner nature, to distinguish it from your awareness of other people, and todirect your spiritual path according to your personal needs and aspirations.

Aspects of theJupiter

Patience is the key ingredient to management ofchange in your life. You have survived many previous changes, and yourspiritual future will doubtless include some more. You make progress inseclusion. You seek the company of visionaries, as you appreciate their abilityto speculate on the future and to develop something radically new and differentout of something well established. You either succumb to yourimpressionability, and gullibility, or you learn to discern the motives thatdrive others and then make your own decisions.

The Ninth House

You have Virgo on the Ninth House cusp. Thetranscendent values you seek to understand are three expressions of thefeminine. The first expression is Eve - the true physical expression ofknowledge, and the search for knowledge. This value is expressed on the mentalplane. The second value involves taking the quest for knowledge to theemotional plane. The third value is the expression of knowledge on the physicalplane through creation. These three values relate to the expression of mindinto physical form and creative work in the material world. This involutionaryprocess can be compared to the evolutionary process whereby the receptive mindbecomes the expressive agent of the spirit.

 

 

Mars:Your Spiritual Persona

Mars indicates an area of life that is vitallyimportant to your spiritual growth. Whatever path you choose, this factor willcome up again and again. Others will see how it affects you, but they areunlikely to understand the depth of its significance. You yourself may notunderstand the power of this influence on your life.

The Element ofMars

Mars is naturally associated with Aries, a firesign. Traditionally Mars was also associated with Scorpio, a water sign. Thusthe expression of Mars shares the nature of these two elements to some extent.The movement between water and fire involves the capacity for discriminatingawareness. Mars governs the five senses-touch, taste, sight, hearing and smell.The position of Mars directly reflects your capacity to relate to the worldthrough your senses.

With Mars in Virgo, your spiritual persona isexpressed most fluently through the Sensation function. You are generallypractical in your activities. If it has no hope of reaping actual, measurableresults, then you just won't do it. This practical streak carries over into thespiritual realm as a desire to develop a regular practice that deepens yoursense of devotion to a teacher or to a body of understanding about your truepurpose. On the material level your actions are designed to help you acquirewhatever you need, but also to acquire those material things that enhance yourfeeling of comfort and richness. On the spiritual level your devotionalpractice-prayer, meditation, good works-also focus on a goal. Many teacherssuggest that meditation has no goal, but in our culture you are almostcertainly seeking something from whatever you do, including the spiritualdirection you take.

The sign placement of Mars is significant todeveloping your spiritual persona. The sign colors the message you receiveconcerning the direction your spiritual path will take. Here are threepersonality traits associated with Mars in your chart: Discrimination, MoralStrength, Unselfishness. If you consider each trait and consciously evoke it inyour daily activities, you will find that the path becomes more fulfilling,more insightful, and easier. By actively devoting energy to the development ofthe traits of your Mars, you spontaneously develop several traits associatedwith other signs.

House Placementof Mars

Your Mars is in the 8th House. The focus of yourspiritual persona is on issues of death and transformation. You seekexperiences that help you to understand your own life and death cycle, with adesire to help others understand their own. A second issue that affects yourpath is your own sexuality. Physical desires can be very strong, and you needto develop judgment in this area of your life. Long term relationshipstransmute physical sexual drives into spiritually ecstatic experiences thatlift you to peak moments of understanding.

Mars Aspects

Emotional friction in your activities can make youfeel separated from your inner being. Use your physical energy to push throughemotional barriers by finding ways to work out feelings without hurting others.Stick with each feeling until you understand how it motivates you. You becomepassionate when you discuss spiritual values. You don't like the feeling ofanger, yet you allow it to arise when the purpose is to convince yourself orothers of a spiritual necessity. Sexual passion can be refined into spiritualecstasy, but only if you are willing to put in the time and effort to cultivatethe deepest personal relationship with another person. You achieve spiritualgrowth in a relationship that has a sexual spark, but that also has the promiseof a long-standing spiritual intertwining of minds and hearts. At some point inyour life you may feel that the gods or goddesses step in to impose changes onyou. What you make of these moments determines your spiritual future.Generally, whatever effort you make will be well worth your time.

 

 

TheAscendant: Expressing Spirit in the World

The Ascendant provides a personal anchor for understandingspiritual potential and process in the birth chart.  It shows how you express yourself in the world.  This is because the rising signrepresents choice - you choose what you want to show to the world.  Ultimately, however, you come back tothe Sun sign on the spiritual level.

Each person learns about the Sun sign's higherspiritual values and cultivates those values by developing the positive traitsof the Ascendant.  Each sign as itrises brings to light different personality traits, different physicalappearance, and a different sense of spiritual direction.  The rising sign offers a container foryour experimentation with constructive, creative personal choices about how toact in the world.  Later you cantake this practice back to the Sun sign and master its lessons.

Remember that the Midheaven and Ascendant dependon an accurate birth time.  If youhave no idea of your birth time, the material included here may help you tofocus on a spiritual persona for yourself.

Your RisingSign (Ascendant)

You are driven by especially human motivations asyou pursue your spiritual life. Your rising sign, Sagittarius, governs the hipsand thighs. It is the arrangement of these parts of the body that allows humansto stand upright and walk. Translate this metaphorically to your spiritual life- upright thinking and attention to your spiritual path are a reflection ofyour capacity to maximize human potential on the physical, emotional, mentaland spiritual levels.

In addition to the above capabilities, you havethe capacity to use intuition in your life. You can envision the future betterthan most people. When you match your intuitive sensibility to your spiritualaspiration, you find that your path becomes easy to identify and to follow. Themore you use your intuition, the more useful it becomes. Your intuitive abilityrests in your intellectual development, so it is important to educate yourselfwell. In your studies you are often able to leap to the answer. It is importantfor you to fill in the blanks, even if it means going back, so that you learnhow to solve more and more difficult problems.

You experience your soul's calling early in life.Other people may put down your budding ideas, but you gather these thoughts toyourself and nurture them. You trust that these ideas have come to you for somereason. You are able to recall them in moments of crisis, and you find you cancommunicate profound sentiments with few words. You have material ambitions,yes, but you also have spiritual aspirations. You will find that rightspiritual aspiration often brings suitable material satisfaction in its wake.

Because your rising sign is connected to the hipsand thighs, you may find that walking meditation, Tai Ch'I, or othercontemplative movement suits your spiritual development. Sitting may not helpyou to focus, while walking meditation may allow your thoughts to settle andyour intuition to arise.

AscendantAspects

You are quick to respond, and intuition helps youfind the right answers. You may upset others with your enthusiasm.
