The following pages contain a brief evaluation of key elements of your birth chart, although it is by no means complete. Astrology can reveal many things about a person’s life and personality, and you could study your chart for a lifetime without knowing the answers to all of your questions. The descriptions that follow will give you a “thumbnail” introduction to yourself through astrology.
In interpreting your chart, this report considers the sign of the planets and the north node in your chart, as well as their house placements. It also describes the sign of the Ascendant and the strongest aspects between the planets.
You may note that some of the following descriptions appear to contradict each other–and indeed we are all walking bundles of contradiction. If you examine yourself carefully, you will probably realize that you do in fact possess the qualities of both conflicting descriptions. Even though some parts of the reading may seem to clash, you will see that certain themes are repeated throughout the following pages. These are the ones that will become major issues in your life.
The readings stress that you are the ultimate decider of your fate. The stars may indicate the hand you were dealt at birth, but it is up to you to play that hand well enough to achieve your goals. Also, bear in mind that every “bad” aspect of a chart also has a “good” side. How it is expressed is really up to you. We tend to work at expressing ourselves more positively most of the time and only lapse into the negative behavior described when depressed, angry or scared. Or it is possible that some aspects may better describe your personality or behavior earlier in life. They may seem alien now because you have already worked through them.
A “Strength” number precedes each aspect description; this number takes into account how exact the aspect is, whether the aspect is a major or minor one, and whether an aspecting planet is close to one of the four chart angles. The higher the Strength, the more you are likely to feel the aspect and to act it out in your life.
Planets in Signs
Sun in Aquarius
When the moon is in the seventh house
And Jupiter aligns with Mars,
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars.
This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius . . .
This is a song from the rock musical Hair. That play and the change in consciousness of that period reflect the qualities of Aquarius: individuality, humanitarianism, freedom and brotherly love. Indeed, Aquarians go through life with one foot in the future, and many have been inventors or futuristic writers. Often misunderstood by their peers, they may seem eccentric or spacey. They love to fly in the face of tradition (and maybe even authority), and are very impatient.
Aquarians believe in dealing with others truthfully. But this is a gray area with natives of this sign–not telling all the truth is much different from telling an outright lie. Whether they like you or not, Aquarians will deal with you fairly and honestly. They practice their belief that all beings are equal. Yet, being a fixed sign, they can be enormously stubborn and strongly opinionated. They may even become intellectual bigots, looking down upon those who are not highly developed intellectually. Even though Aquarians will denounce discrimination, they do indeed have their own special prejudices–but they will be different from society’s norm (in other words, based on something other than race, creed, sex, etc.).
Aquarians can seem distant and aloof to their loved ones, who may feel as though they are being examined under a microscope or dissected. This is only the Aquarian’s effort to achieve objectivity by constantly scrutinizing everything about life. Actually, Aquarians are very understanding lovers; they tolerate others’ imperfections, and to others may appear to be a pushover in relationships. But they do have a point beyond which they will not turn the other cheek. Once this line has been crossed, the partner will have a hard time making amends.
In sex, you enjoy variety and inventiveness. Under the right conditions, Aquarians are capable of sustaining open relationships, where both partners are allowed to maintain friends (or lovers) outside the main relationship. Aquarians of both sexes would be most satisfied with a relationship in which both partners have equal autonomy. Otherwise, Aquarius will feel trapped and want out.
Moon in Leo
With your Moon in Leo you are warm, loving and outgoing. Your favorite relationships are those which encourage mutual growth–whether they be love relationships, friendships or business partnerships. You are not afraid to meet others halfway in order to accomplish this.
With this Moon placement you are highly idealistic and should exercise discrimination in choosing your friends and lovers. Don’t settle for less than what you want in your personal relationships. Otherwise you will begin to resent the other person and to express disappointment in them.
You love children and may actually have difficulty cutting the apron strings when they grow up. Your children know they are loved and will return your affection with the utmost respect. They are inspired by your example, which encourages them to develop a healthy measure of self-confidence and optimism about life.
In business you usually emerge as a leader. At the very least, you are capable of exercising authority in a benevolent fashion and therefore make a good supervisor. Others respect you and are encouraged by your sense of pride in your work. Just be sure you don’t take on too much responsibility. Be willing to share some of the burden with others when needed.
Since you enjoy the social scene, you need a partner who is similarly inclined. You love being the center of attention, as this is a great ego boost for you. You enjoy the company of many varied friends, so your love partner must be able to look beyond petty jealousies and share you with the rest of the world.
Mercury in Aquarius
Mercury in the sign Aquarius has a reputation for being the sign of the genius, as many inventors and scientists have Mercury in this sign. You have a highly original and versatile mind, and you can put your ideas to work in a practical manner. It may be difficult for you to gain acceptance from your own generation for your ideas because with Mercury in Aquarius you are a futuristic thinker. In another 50 years, everyone else will catch up.
Although your friends are very special to you, it is important that you follow your own convictions no matter what others think. With your highly developed intuition, you also have the ability to see through the pretenses of others. You communicate your ideas very clearly so that others can easily understand even the most abstract concepts.
You have a well-balanced concept of human values and view life from the point of view of what is most helpful for the entire planet (or the Universe). You strive to remain detached and objective, so that your judgment can remain clear. This is a good idea, as long as your detachment does not become aloof coolness. You have a natural aptitude for science, both traditional and metaphysical. Since Aquarius rules astrology, Mercury in this sign indicates at least a curiosity about this subject.
Your friends will be your greatest source of mental stimulation, and you will choose friends from every walk of life. With your highly developed sense of intuition you may have psychic abilities, such as telepathy or premonitions. You have an excellent memory, and may be able to recall details of past lives with greater detail than others.
Venus in Capricorn
Rather conventional in your values, you look at things for their practical use rather than for decorative appeal. You take life seriously and are probably interested in business and banking matters. Although you may not be a classist, per se, you are definitely conscious of your reputation in the community and pride yourself on being above reproach. You prefer to associate with others who are similarly inclined.
As a friend or lover, you are very loyal and trustworthy. Once you commit yourself to a relationship, you will be a solid and dependable mate. You look at love practically, just as you do the rest of your life. If possible, you would prefer to “marry up”–that is, to marry someone who will make you look good because of their own success or social status.
You are attracted to people who are practical, persevering and accomplished. With this Venus position you certainly recognize true value in a partner when you see it. Security is very important to you–both emotionally and materially. You seek quality in your relationships and will not settle for anything less. You would not last long with a partner who tarnishes your reputation or otherwise threatens to lower your status on the social scene.
Venus in this sign makes you somewhat controlled and reserved in your love life. You are able to be patient and wait for what (or who) you want. Actions speak louder than words to you in your love life, and you will be a tremendously loyal and helpful mate. You seek security in your relationships, and you truly need to be needed. It is important to you that your mate treat you and your relationship with respect.
Mars in Libra
With Mars in Libra, you prefer peaceful social exchange rather than hot-tempered disputes. Yet, you also seek constant balance by arguing both sides of any situation. In an effort to survive in a world that is often less than peaceful, you must develop the art of negotiation and compromise. You are a natural at working in harmony with a team toward a common goal.
Since you are quite charming, you can often persuade others to see your side without having to resort to argument. You are highly intuitive and seem to know just how to “hook” people with your charm. Although you really don’t want to manipulate or control anyone, all is fair in love and war.
You seek a certain amount of refinement and social grace in your partner. Appearances are important to you, and you are concerned about what others think of you. It is likely that your partner will be physically attractive as well as poised and tactful. You are very attentive and will go to extreme lengths to please your partner.
You often instigate change in your relationships and become bored quickly with any that become static. Just be sure that you do not provoke change just for the sake of change; learn to recognize which elements of your relationship should be preserved and which should be thrown out. It is important to you that any relationship you have maintain a quality of fairness.
Jupiter in Scorpio
You have a flair for finance and the management of the resources of others, as well as natural healing abilities. People are attracted to you by your magnetic personality and deep inner strength. Avoid using your power over others to manipulate and control them. With Jupiter in Scorpio, you may benefit from inheritances. You are hard-working, efficient and resourceful, and therefore you often attain your goals. Sex is very important to you, and if Jupiter is afflicted you may become obsessed with sexual fantasies.
Saturn in Libra
You always seek balance and justice, and for this reason you have a strong sense of social responsibility. With Saturn in Libra, your greatest lessons will be learned through your close personal relationships. Through your partners, you will learn greater cooperation and sharing as you seek harmony and balance. You may encounter relationships which are restrictive and limiting, or which in some way require you to develop greater self-discipline. Traditionally, this placement indicates that you will marry late in life.
Uranus in Sagittarius
You have a strong curiosity about foreign lands and cultures, and you would find travel to be very mind-expanding. With your strong need to express yourself in your own unique way, you are a revolutionary thinker who could inspire others to bring about needed changes. You approach life philosophically and with great optimism, and you are constantly seeking spiritual enlightenment and evolution.
Neptune in Sagittarius
You are philosophical and even prophetic about societal change. You have a strong love for freedom and a restless optimism about the future. Since you have clairvoyant abilities, you can gain knowledge from your dreams and visions. You will fight religious and moral fanaticism.
Pluto in Libra
Your generation has seen massive changes in laws regarding such things as marriage, birth control and sexual behavior. You will also work to curb violence and sexism and to clean up the environment. Because of your strong desire to achieve harmony and balance, you will expose and eliminate corruption in society.
North Node in Cancer
You have spent many lifetimes accumulating wealth and managing others. Although you achieved material success and gained the respect of your peers, you did so without regard for the needs of others. During this lifetime you feel compelled to succeed in order to regain the respect you once had. You control your emotions very well and are not easy to get close to. Although you may feel others are neglecting you, you have put up a wall to keep them away. Your challenge is to give nourishment as well as receive it.
Chiron in Taurus
Material security is an issue for you–one which you probably inherited from your parents. Perhaps they seemed to place a very high value on possessions and the acquisition of wealth. Or your family was a poor one, and you had no sense of financial security. As a result, you will either follow your parents’ example, or resolve to make your life different from theirs.
Once you’ve worked through the lessons that Chiron in Taurus brings, you may work with groups dedicated to helping the disadvantaged members of society. The assistance you give will empower the needy to help themselves, rather than encouraging them to remain dependent. You can be very resourceful when working with limited resources, especially when you follow your intuition.
Planets in Aspect
Sun trine Mars (Strength: 5.86)
You are highly creative and have the self-confidence and leadership ability to put it into practice. You are not afraid to take on the most difficult tasks and know that you can accomplish whatever you set your mind to. However, you are not willing to resort to deception and manipulation in order to do so. You are fair and honest in your dealings with others, and because of this you will win out over your competitors.
Though you may act impulsively at times, you generally plan your endeavors carefully and efficiently. This ensures that you will succeed where others would fail. You are proud of your ability to maintain integrity in the “dog-eat-dog” world and become angry when others question your motives. If you are wrongfully accused by foes, your friends and associates will rally to your support.
You get along well with others and relate to them in a way that is non-threatening. Although you are always willing to help others, you generally mind your own business and respect the privacy of others. Your abundant energy and self-confidence draw others to you, and they are inspired by your achievements.
In a career you would do well in law, management, acting, education or sports. Your creative abilities would also serve you well in any field requiring communication skills or counseling. Young people admire you and are inspired by your self-confidence and integrity. You relate easily to children because you let them be who they are instead of expecting them to behave like adults.
In your personal relationships you make adjustments to others quite easily–mostly because you accept them as they are. You need a partner who will extend the same courtesy to you rather than trying to shape you into their idea of perfection. You solve problems in your relationships easily because you are willing to face them head-on.
Sun opposite Moon (Strength: 4.78)
Your emotions (the Moon) and your ego (the Sun) are diametrically opposed to each other, and this results in a conflict between these two sides of yourself. This leads to difficulty in relating to others, as your inner conflict is projected into your relationships. You often act impulsively and then regret it later. It’s hard for you to accept life’s little failures at first, but you eventually learn that they are the essence of life and learning.
Often your need to assert your own individuality conflicts with your duties and obligations to loved ones. Although you would rather they support your individual expression, they somehow leave you feeling guilty–as though you have abandoned them for your own whimsical pursuits.
You must learn to “cut the cord” with your past and to live in the present. Take charge of defining and achieving your life’s goals. Don’t wait for opportunity to find its way to your door. Don’t pout when things don’t work out your way. And remember to take some time out for yourself– a constantly hectic pace is not healthy for you.
Relationships are very important to you, and you need a partner who understands you (and loves you anyway). Your mate must also be your friend, and he or she must love you deeply and support you in your goals in life. They must be able to inspire you to recognize and develop latent talents and bolster you in times of weakness. Of course, such a person is rare; be willing to give what you need to receive.
Venus square Saturn (Strength: 4.72)
It is not easy for you to relate well with others, and this may hinder your social relationships. In truth, you don’t want to deal with the responsibility of a close personal relationship. This causes you to become defensive with those you love–you are afraid of the demands they will make upon you. This can be traced to an early rejection in life–possibly by a parent. Because of this rejection you built walls around yourself in order to avoid further hurt.
Perhaps you feel that you were not meant to enjoy happy relationships in your life. But if you will learn to accept others as they are and are willing to compromise, you can achieve social and domestic happiness. There is nothing different about experiencing difficulties in relating to others. Everyone goes through times of trouble–you are not alone in this.
Once you have learned to make concessions in your dealings with others, you will see that others are willing to do so. Your greatest lessons in life will be achieved through making adjustments to others. After all, everyone has their own idiosyncrasies to deal with–even you. Cultivate a more positive attitude toward life instead of feeling sorry for yourself. Otherwise, you will suffer physically from tension and anxiety through high blood pressure or other illnesses. Give of yourself instead of complaining about others’ demands of you.
If you are to be successful in your career, you must learn to deal more easily with others. You can achieve great heights in this area if you are willing to compromise and accept others’ shortcomings. You could succeed in a career in law, banking, insurance, real estate, or designing. You are well organized and exercise good judgment in your work. All you need to ensure success is to build up your own self-esteem. Others will admire your honesty and integrity.
In your love life you must learn to avoid destructive relationships. Approach your love affairs more realistically–don’t expect too much of those you love. This sets you up for disappointment and convinces you that you are not destined for happiness in love. However, this can become a self-fulfilling prediction. Learn to enjoy your lover without making judgments or criticisms.
Moon sextile Saturn (Strength: 4.43)
As a child you were hesitant to express emotion and probably appeared rather serious most of the time. Perhaps you felt you were always “older” than other children your age. What others thought of you was very important, and you often sought others’ approval. As you grew older you learned to rely more on your own approval of yourself and less on outside reassurance.
In your relationships with others you often play the advisor or confidante for your loved ones. You probably played this role for siblings or peers even as a child. Over the years you developed a talent for listening to the problems of others and understanding their plight. You learned early to talk out problems when they arise rather than allow emotional conflicts to develop.
It is important to you that you be able to trust all those who are close to you. You must have truthfulness as a basis for your dealings with others. Superficial pleasantries will not work. You take communication too seriously and want sincerity from others.
Your intelligence and integrity should open many doors for you occupationally. You would do well in politics, public relations, management, law, medicine, or education. You have the patience required to excel in any endeavor you undertake. You are ambitious, but are willing to work hard and wait for true success.
It would be a pleasure to you to help your mate achieve success, even though this might mean their attention would be distracted from the relationship with you. Sex in itself is not so important to you as the deeper mental and spiritual connections between you.
Sun trine Saturn (Strength: 4.20)
You are driven to succeed in life. You have an in-born ability to capitalize on opportunities. You know you are good at what you do, and this further increases your chance of success. Although you are not necessarily “lucky,” you are very good at coming up with the right answers to the right questions.
The following are just some of the occupations in which you could excel: conservation, park and recreational management, architecture, land development, law, and politics. You have a knack for organization and are endowed with the patience necessary to persevere in your goals.
You would be happiest in a long-term relationship. You demand that your partner be sincere and self-disciplined, and you act as a stabilizing force in the relationship. You will always support your mate in achieving his or her own personal goals. This is because you are very secure in yourself and are not threatened by your loved one’s achievements.
Mercury sextile Uranus (Strength: 3.84)
You have above average intelligence and may lose patience with those who cannot keep up with your mental pace. Your parents were probably amazed at your intellectual gift as a child, and you became accustomed to older adults being impressed with the extent of your knowledge.
You have a wealth of knowledge in many areas and share your bounty freely with anyone who expresses an interest. You would enjoy teaching but would need a challenging position in order not to become intellectually bored. You are good at inspiring others to learn.
Because your mind is constantly moving, periods of rest and relaxation are most important for your well-being. Cultivate some patience and learn to unwind.
Your sex life will never be boring, and you will bring vitality into your sexual relationships. You need a partner who will be willing to act out your fantasies with you and allow you to exercise your sexual creativity.
Neptune sextile Pluto (Strength: 3.49)
This is the only aspect Neptune has made to Pluto during this century, and the planets will remain in sextile to each other for another hundred years, although the signs the planets occupy will continue to change as time passes.
For those born between 1942 and 1956, Neptune was in Libra and Pluto in Leo. These people were born at a time of global war. Governments rose and fell; kings were ousted from their castles. There were breakthroughs in air power (Neptune in Libra) which helped establish the balance of power between the U.S. and the Soviet Union. This time was filled with meetings and peace conferences between global leaders. Those born during this time know that compromise is not enough to achieve peace; you are naturally suspicious of your leaders, and this will help to promote greater honesty and accountability on the part of political figures.
If you were born between 1957 and 1970, Neptune was in Scorpio and Pluto in Virgo. There were new advances in health and medicine, as well as rapid spread of illegal drugs. Our long- held conservative attitude about sex began to dissolve, and we began to realize that marriage was not essential to maintain a committed relationship. Those born during this time seek to serve and improve society. You are also angry about the current state of our environment and natural resources.
If you were born between 1971 and 1983, Neptune was in Sagittarius and Pluto in Libra. Your attitudes about religion, education and human interactions are most likely different from those of your parents. Your religious beliefs, or spiritual practices, are important to you, and you are deeply concerned for the fate of your planet and the race of man. You will insist that your leaders be straight with you and will not accept excuses or manipulation. You are also interested in occult sciences, and many advances in this area will be made by members of your generation.
If you were born between 1984 and 1998, Neptune was in Capricorn and Pluto in Scorpio. You are part of a generation which will make great progress in dealing with power responsibly, both in terms of interpersonal relationships and as protectors of our Mother Earth. You will seek to transform society and replace rampant injustice with compassionate guidance.
Venus square Pluto (Strength: 2.57)
Your emotional life is filled with turmoil, and you sometimes feel that everything good you experience always has a negative side. You pursue goals that are not necessarily right for you, and therefore you encounter obstacles along the way. Learn to listen to your inner voice which directs you along certain paths. Fighting it will only cause you more trouble.
You give of yourself only when there’s something in it for you, and you are even likely to use love or sex to get what you want. Financial security and social comfort are important to you, and you will do what is necessary to achieve them. It is likely that you will experience at least one major upheaval in your life which will transform your attitude. You will learn to value spiritual and intellectual companions–not just those from whom you benefit materially.
If you are unable to resolve this problem, you will certainly experience difficulty in both your domestic and professional relationships. Live up to your responsibilities without being forced to, whether you will reap any material benefit from it or not. Conduct yourself with honesty and integrity, and you will attract similar people to you.
Learn to hold back on making promises unless you are sure you can carry them out. Don’t be so quick to accuse others of wrongdoing, and learn to accept criticism from others. According to Universal Law, the best way to receive is to give away exactly what it is you want to get. It always comes back. Be warm, sincere and compassionate with others and they will respond in kind.
Health-wise, you are prone to illnesses relating to the generative organs. Be sure that you have periodic check-ups and watch your diet.
Moon trine Neptune (Strength: 2.23)
You are highly inventive and artistically creative; you have an active imagination. You enjoy a unity between your inner and outer selves which gives you a spiritual outlook on life. You communicate your feelings well through artistic expression and have a deep appreciation for things of beauty.
You probably play a chief nurturing role in your family and encourage your loved ones to express themselves to the fullest. It is possible that you will enjoy your freedom of movement and choose not to have a family. Nevertheless, children will grow through contact with you and will treasure your advice. They are comfortable in your presence and trust your judgment.
While you enjoy helping others, you don’t feel obligated to assist someone who refuses to help themselves. You respect and appreciate the creative works of others (artistic or otherwise) and are a loyal friend. Since you are aware of the importance of every person’s role in the community, you may volunteer your time or otherwise work on causes you consider to be worthwhile.
You prefer a lover who is interesting and preferably somewhat educated or refined. You would never become bored with someone who had a variety of interests and led an active life. It is likely that you will achieve the finer things in life. When you do, remember that your best opportunities for growth can be found through sharing your vast resources with others.
Moon inconjunct Venus (Strength: 2.15)
This aspect shows that you give greater importance to the needs of others than to your own. You are always the first to make concessions, even though others are not expecting you to. You are not able to judge your own worth and the worth of others because of your intense emotional reaction to others. You need to detach yourself emotionally and then logically decide how competent and valuable you are.
Because you are naturally self-effacing and submissive, you attract others who would take advantage of your lack of self-worth. If it seems to you that others are constantly taking advantage of you, just remember that they cannot take anything from you which you do not freely give. In other words, you must simply learn to say “no” to others’ needs more often and “yes” to your own.
Your extreme desire to please others can obscure your perspective of fairness. Don’t allow coworkers to dump their unwanted duties and responsibilities on you, and don’t be afraid to speak up when someone tries to take advantage of you. Remember to make it clear that you deserve to be compensated for your time and effort, and don’t allow others to keep expecting you to help them as a favor.
In love relationships, you seem to attract partners who constantly demand that you prove your love to them. This often puts you, a “giver,” in relationships with “takers.” Again, remember to keep the scale more balanced in your dealings with others. Otherwise, you’ll only end up feeling used, and you’ll be right.
Mars conjunct Saturn (Strength: 2.07)
You are a hard worker and know how to best apply your energies to achieve desired results. Since you accept responsibility for your actions, you consider the consequences carefully before making any move. You are adept at using time and effort most efficiently in order that no resources are wasted. Because of all of these characteristics, you can succeed in life more easily than many. Others will respect you for your sincerity and good judgment.
You learned early to take on major responsibilities and handle them–whether this was a result of positive encouragement or response to a negative childhood environment, the end result was the same. You learned to define and to work within your limitations, making the best uses of the resources on hand. Although you are cautious in making decisions, this is not because of fear. When you feel the time is appropriate, you are very courageous about asserting yourself.
You are considerate of others’ rights and expect the same in return. You will make wonderful progress if left alone and will brook no interference from anyone. Others who try to interfere with your progress will meet a formidable opponent. Although you are slow to anger, you can be quite vicious with your adversaries.
In your career, you would do well in such fields as archaeology, forestry work, exploration or even military service. You have incredible stamina and would excel in any occupation requiring endurance and hard work. Just be sure not to work all the time, to the exclusion of any leisure time, and take time off to relax. Avoid cold liquids after strenuous physical exercise, for this may result in cramps.
Moon sextile Mars (Strength: 1.64)
Others find you quite charming and are charged by your vitality and high energy level. Your circle of friends is a wide one, and you generally enjoy warm friendships with those close to you. People find you pleasant to be around and are inspired by your enthusiasm for life. You are able to learn from your mistakes and to remain optimistic about the future.
You have an explosive temper when provoked and are generally impulsive in your reactions to others. Because you know this about yourself, you are very careful to control your feelings at least until you have come to a logical conclusion regarding the situation. An emotional outburst seems to be your way of “clearing the air,” and once the storm has passed all trespasses are forgotten and forgiven. You don’t generally hold a grudge.
Because you are aware of your tendency to react emotionally to others and have therefore learned to use logic first, you would do well in the field of public relations. You are sensitive enough to be sympathetic to others, yet you are able to be logical in your reaction. If you feel your rights are challenged, you will fight vigorously to defend them.
Your home life is a source of joy and pleasure and provides a safe haven away from the pressures of your career. Learn to leave your work at the office and enjoy relaxing at home with loved ones. Do not eat when you are angry.
Saturn conjunct Pluto (Strength: 1.30)
You are very ambitious and have the necessary drive to succeed at your goals. You are not afraid to work hard or to go without for a while if necessary in order to achieve your end. You cannot bear the thought of living a life of non- fulfillment and work with determination to achieve success.
Although you have many plans for the future, you share them with only your closest and most trusted loved ones. You may be secretive about your plans and work behind the scenes supporting others who are successful. Along the way, however, you will gain the necessary experience and resources to ensure your own success. You are cagey with a buck and can manage resources (your own as well as others’) very well.
You may find that your first career chooses you rather than your choosing it. It will probably be a rather “traditional” occupation which provide you with a sense of stability. Just be sure not to become too locked into the “old ways” so that you are not receptive to new ideas and changes. You are usually rather extreme in your reaction to problems — either becoming stubborn and resisting defiantly or surrendering to the flow and going through a transformation.
You would be an effective supervisor or group leader. You have the ability to organize yourself and others and are well respected by those with whom you work. You have a strong respect for the law and justice and seek to be fair in all your dealings with others. You are a wonderful judge of character because of your ability to see through to people’s inner motives.
Venus square Mars (Strength: 0.79)
Compromise does not come easy to you, and therefore you are not always the easiest person to get along with. This causes problems for you in your close personal relationships. Your desire nature at times seems to rule you, and you will do whatever you have to do to accomplish your goals. Others may accuse you of using people who are in love with you, especially when the feeling is not mutual. Self-indulgence is one of your favorite pastimes, and at times you may overdo it.
You seem to provoke conflict in your life in order to punish yourself for the negative traits in yourself you do not like. In this way you can project this negativity to your “attacker,” when in fact he/she is merely reacting to your provocation. At times you can be quite insensitive to the needs of others, and this causes problems in your love life.
The solution to all of the above areas of tension is to learn the art of compromise. Learn to put the needs of others before your own (at least sometimes) and to approach a relationship from the point of view of what you can give, not what you can receive. Tone down your highly active desire nature and resist the temptation to be grabby.
If you can develop a philosophy of patience and generosity, you can succeed in many areas of your life — career and domestic life included. Along the way you will develop a taste for the finer arts and social graces which can tone down your natural coarse manner.
Mercury square Jupiter (Strength: 0.46)
You are curious and eager to learn new things, but you often lose interest before you have studied anything in- depth. This can result in your becoming a “jack of all trades but master of none.” You look for an easy way out, a “quick fix,” but this is not the best solution to your problems.
It is necessary to climb any ladder from the bottom up, although you would prefer to be able to start out in life at the top. You are often impulsive with your judgment of people and things, and you do not plan your actions well. If you are going to achieve your goals in life, you must develop more self-discipline and patience. You have great dreams of success in life, but you are caught short when it comes to planning and carrying out the steps necessary to achieve them.
You have a tendency to bend the truth when it doesn’t quite fit your preferred reality. Probably, you are not even conscious of this tendency in yourself and are not aware of your “distortion” of facts. You also allow yourself to believe what you want when it comes to people. This can set you up for deception; a good salesperson could always win you over to believe in them and their product.
Education is of utmost importance to you, and once you have completed school you could do well in education, public relations, writing, or any profession involving travel. It would be wise for you to put off your education until you have earned your degree in the “school of life.” Attending school (or later working in education) helps you sharpen your judgment and develop self-discipline. If you ever hope to achieve success in this lifetime, you must learn these lessons first. Otherwise all your dreams and ambitions will get you nowhere.
You are particularly prone to nervous disorders and other maladies caused by anxiety and frustration. Be sure to give yourself leisure time to spend just for yourself, and get lots of rest. This will have to be a conscious effort on your part. No one else will be able to convince you to change your ways; you’ll have to do it for yourself.
Balance of Elements and Modalities
You seem to live for mental exploration. Discovering and communicating the connections between ideas, people, and places is your function in life. Your active mind is good at identifying new frontiers whose basics you quickly master, so that you end up knowing something about almost everything. You have a dispassionate nature that cooly considers the pros and cons of a situation, able to place logic above personal emotion. From your mental viewpoint, emotions look irrational. You make a good negotiator, sales person, communicator, arbitrator, analyst, and information processor. Ideas flow quickly for you. While impersonal and dispassionate, you nonetheless thrive on communication and social interaction. At your best, you strive to understand and accept people, not to change them. Courageously, you adhere to principles. You appreciate culture, structure, and systems.
Your greatest strength is also your weakness, namely too much coolness from placing head above heart. Leaders must be able to follow their hearts without being indecisive or equivocating. And you ignore your real connection to others if you use your mental gifts to coldly manipulate them. Try to avoid isolation by functioning as part of a team in which your logic, analysis, and communication skills are put to good use. Work with others who may be more practical, sensitive, or passionate than are you. Don’t keep your good ideas inside, but write them down and communicate them to others.
You are an active, future-oriented person who is not weighed down by past commitments. You take advantage of new opportunities better than most. Life for you can be a vibrant affair in which you passionately pursue causes, lovers, and experiences. You have the self-confidence to be a leader. Competitive and flamboyant, you have little patience for slow people or unexciting work. When an activity interests you, you can be very generous with your time, energy, and money. Find outlets for your gifts of creativity and intuition.
Watch out for a tendency to exaggerate or to be insensitive to others’ feelings. More cautious types may envy and resent your free spirit and competitive nature. You get bored easily and may depend on others to finish the projects that you start. When your warmth is guided by love, wisdom, and positive goals you have the ability to heal and inspire others, but when you focus on your self or lack direction, your short-lived passions can affect others in destructive ways.
Lack of Water
For you the world of feelings may be terra incognita. Close interpersonal relations, which require the expression of feelings, and empathy for others’ feelings, do not come naturally or easily for you. You have difficulty putting yourself in someone else’s shoes in order to feel what they feel. You will learn how to deal with life in a tough, mental sort of way. People looking for someone to empathize with them should not come to you. Those people who are comfortable with you are not looking for emotional closeness. It’s not that you don’t have emotions and feelings, but they do not come out easily in your relationships. If you are an artist, they may come out in your art. You probably take refuge from the difficulty of forming emotional connections by concentrating on intellectual, practical, or inspired activity. Your best companions would be those who are able to inhabit these realms with you, but who are also in touch with their feelings. They can help you to contact your own feelings and teach you to respect and honor other people’s feelings.
A lack of planets in Water signs can be offset by a Water sign ascendant or by abundant planets in the houses of Endings.
Lack of Earth
You may be so focused on the “bigger picture” that you have difficulty managing the many details of life. Balancing your checkbook or leaving your bedroom clean may seem beyond your abilities. Other tasks may be important, but you find it hard to concentrate long enough to complete them. Knowing your own lack of concentration and self-discipline, you may cling to established routines because you know that you are able to do important things through force of habit. If you do not flit from job to job, you could hold onto a job or a relationship for too long because you do not trust that you will be secure without it. Your lack of real world perspective may make it hard for you to distinguish that which really matters from that which is unimportant, so that you sometimes focus on small things while leaving the really big things undone. You may say that you care about money, but unless you have abundant planets in the houses of Substance, you will not execute a detailed plan to get it. If you can avoid driving them crazy, enlist the help of those more grounded than yourself in order to turn your inspirations into reality.

With an abundance of planets in Fixed signs, you have the staying power to complete a project, grow a family, or expand a business. Your strength is what friends notice most about you. You have definite values; you focus your affections on the people and things that are part of your team. Friendships formed over time are important to you. You may be found at the center of a circle of friends, a large family, a government agency, or a business. You understand the contribution that stability and security make to prosperity and growth. It throws you off-balance when friends are not as reliable as you are or when love and ideals are not part of your life. Concentrate on developing confidence in yourself, a wholesome world for your family or group, and binding others to you with love. If you have a weakness, it is trouble changing or listening when people tell you a better way to do things. You can handle this weakness by empowering your team, as among them will be individuals who are good at reacting to a constantly changing world.
Lack of Mutable
With a lack of planets in the Mutable signs, you probably go your own way in life without caring too much what other people think. You know what you want and see little need to compromise. You lack flexibility and adaptability. You do best when you can establish a pace and stick to it. Leave those sports and activities that require fast reactions and adaptability to others.
Sometimes you say things that offend others, because you are not especially concerned with the feelings or opinions of others. In fact, you sometimes appall your friends with your single-mindededness and lack of sensitivity. Because of your individuality, people who are attracted to change and variety may find you stimulating at first, but after a while might find your predictability to be boring. This is unlikely to keep you from pursuing your path. Your path involves being yourself and changing the world. Just don’t insist that others be like you.
