This Spirit Success Report from Halloran Software’s AstrolDeluxe ReportWriter program draws upon 576 paragraphs which interpret the places of the planets at the time of your birth, describing your personal houses, sign placements, and planetary aspects.
These astrological delineations depict your potential and how to make the most of it, or the challenges you will continue to face and how to confront and benefit from them. Though you may change through experience, your inherent characteristics will still motivate how you act and react to circumstances. How you handle yourself is really a clue to your success, and it is up to you to make the “right” choices.
Here are the parts which make up your chart:
HOUSES: Govern sections of your life, e.g., your money, your health, your partners, etc. They are also meaningful as to where your early interests lie and if they are worth pursuing.
SIGNS: Contribute feelings or vibrations to “color” planets, e.g., MERCURY rules GEMINI and VIRGO and emphasizes their qualities of thought, travel, health, and work. JUPITER rules SAGITTARIUS and higher education, spiritual growth, and law.
ASPECTS: Are angles combining the planets in the SIGNS/HOUSES that trigger the manner in which you will be influenced or can handle your qualities to advantage, e.g., MERCURY (thought) TRINE (in good aspect to) JUPITER (education and law) may indicate that you can succeed as a counselor in legal matters.
A “Strength” number precedes each ASPECT interpretation towards the end of the reading. This number synthesizes how exact is the aspect, whether the aspect is major or minor, 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 live it out in your life.
You are most likely to feel and act out the Spirit Success Report’s sign and house placement interpretations when the planets involved are strong in your chart. This is true especially of the outer planets, Jupiter through Pluto. The Astrodynes program, also available from Halloran Software, calculates the respective power and harmony of all the planets in your chart.
Planets in Signs and Houses
You seem, and may look, older than you are. You tend to hold your head high so it appears you are looking “down your nose” at the world. Your features are usually slender, and somewhat sharp. You have a clear, concise way of speaking with authority that causes others to pay attention. You are a student with a purpose, excellent study habits and are self-disciplined. Because you work hard and expect to succeed, you have a good chance of doing so on your terms.
Sun in Sagittarius
(Keynote: I ASPIRE)
You are self-reliant, ambitious, optimistic and friendly. You may also be sarcastic, self-indulgent, impatient and tactless. Others may see you as irresponsible, and a capricious flirt. The truth is you are acutely aware of human values and enjoy improving potential. You relate well to children, animals and the environment, and find them all fascinating. You avoid commitment, which you feel restricts your freedom to expand. Your bluntness often disguises a compassionate heart, deserving of rewards for your generous contributions to our planet.
Sun in the Twelfth House
Some view this placement as the result of a misuse of power in past lives, because you are unduly hard on yourself. Your over-active mind is impressionable. You may become a square peg in a round hole if you wear the mask of others as your own. You require periods of seclusion for rest and self-examination, because you question why “no-one” understands you. If you seek counseling, you may become a counselor to help others avoid the pain of your experiences. You, too, are deserving. Acknowledge that if you are your own worst enemy, you can be your own best friend.
Moon in Cancer
You identify with your heredity, which you probably revere. If you compare your environment with that of your early years, or romanticize your childhood out of proportion, it will be difficult to establish a life of your own away from familiar surroundings. Because you sympathize with others, you feel justified in “crying on their shoulders,” but must realize some do not share your protective feelings. Your home must be emotionally satisfying. You will probably be a good parent, but may be overly-strict, as if you were responsible for a child’s actions as an adult, which still reflect on you.
Moon in the Sixth House
A devotion to duty, when coupled with the psychological impact of feeling “used”, can result in what can only be termed a “martyr complex.” Because you are serious by nature, you will allow, and even insist on bearing the impositions of others; then fretting over your oppressions until you make yourself ill. Learn to know what is your package, and then how to balance it so that it becomes not a BURDEN, but a steadying agent as you approach maturity.
Mercury in Capricorn
You are a strategist who employs systematic methods and are seldom upset, unless your plans are disturbed. You communicate with others by getting right to the point with a minimum of wasted effort. Others may consider you sober, self-righteous and too rigid to enjoy life, but what they think of as “rigid”, you believe to be structured, “sober” as merely serious, and “self-righteousness” is your pride in accomplishments that you have earned the hard way.
Mercury in the First House
You know yourself well and think on your feet. You can express your point of view but may be scattered and easily distracted. You may lack follow-through so that others think you too superficial to be taken seriously. You often talk yourself into a desirable situation and lose it because of a tendency to hyperbolize. Choose and channel your words with discipline. Learn to be a good listener. Remember, nothing worth remembering is accomplished by talk, alone.
Venus in Aquarius
You are attractive, intelligent and generous to a fault. Your outgoing nature and congenial personality make it easy for you to make friends. You are intrigued by the eccentric and bizarre and may become involved with some unusual companions. Since you are emotionally detached, some relationships are on a platonic basis. Perhaps it is because you enjoy giving rather than receiving that you distance yourself from intimacies that require commitment.
Venus in the First House
You’ll learn early how to utilize your good looks, sunny disposition and outgoing personality to attract friends and have little trouble getting your own way. Partners will always be important to you, so you should learn to share willingly. Use as your spiritual guide the lesson of St. Francis: “…It is by giving that one receives.” Perfect your gift of beauty on your personal universe. There is no better way to use it.
Mars in Scorpio
Many are attracted to your powerful magnetism, but may be frightened by the intensity with which you approach life in general and your desires in particular. You are in touch with your emotions, and may be governed by them so need discipline to succeed. You live on a grandiose scale. Everything is magnified by ten-plus and receives the full force of your energy until you are satisfied with your achievements. You are an unrelenting foe and the most magnanimous of friends.
Mars in the Eleventh House
You will use your ability to work with people to achieve your personal goals. You may have only a few close friends, because you are too busy enlarging your circle to establish many permanent relationships. You weren’t born to be a team-player, but will find that support is necessary to further your ambitions. Cooperation and coordination should be your key words for success and play a major part in your life-pattern of expansion.
Jupiter in Cancer
You may attract and absorb too much of a good thing, if you are a gourmet cook, or take the world’s burdens on your sympathetic shoulders. Your acumen in business is unquestioned, but without someone to share your triumphs, you become disconsolate. What you do for others is done from love; a day without friends is indeed a day without sunshine.
Jupiter in the Sixth House
People willingly work with you. You are a good worker, and make working conditions as pleasant as possible. You enjoy working in comfortable surroundings, and your jobs are personally gratifying. You may wish to socialize with your fellows, but too many lunches encourage a temptation to overindulge, with a result of unwanted pounds and inches.
Saturn in Capricorn
Ambition motivates you to achieve your goals “no matter what!” It is your belief in your executive qualities of perseverance and discipline that will get you to the top and determination that will keep you there. Your relationships often take a back seat to your achievements, but man cannot live by bread, alone. Do not take yourself so seriously that you fail to permit the sweetness of the outside world to intrude, however briefly, in your somewhat solitary life.
Saturn in the First House
You were born with the weight of the world on your shoulders and a profound sense of what is proper and what is not. You take life seriously and assume responsibility, but are frequently disappointed when others don’t recognize your value. You may have to enlarge your concepts, and grow past a tendency to magnify your difficulties. Discard negativity. Childhood sicknesses may also vanish, releasing you from other inhibitions which have held you back.
Uranus in Capricorn
You will occasionally relax your normally-austere facade and abandon your conventional ways. You enjoy originality and indulging your creative side, while keeping your aims intact. You are interested in balancing, rather than tipping the scales, and may hold offices that require tolerance, as well as authority. Your excellent powers of discernment encourage improving conditions for yourself and others, since you take a long-range, instead of a narrow view.
Uranus in the Twelfth House
You may work a lifetime to escape the harassment of those who don’t understand you. You tend to be reclusive under pressure, but this is not the answer to your problems. The secrets of your subconscious mind are waiting to be discovered. Your dreams may hold clues as to why negative ideas surface unbidden during your waking moments. Fortunately, you will attract the proper teachers to help you understand yourself when their advice is most needed.
Neptune in Capricorn
No matter what you put your hand to, it seems to come up gold. This is no accident, but the result of keen insight, careful planning, and the persistence to ride over rough times and wait until fortune smiles. You’re sometimes observed as a barometer for the stock market. Even obscure plans take shape under your direction. When you trust someone, you take his shortcomings as your own. If betrayed, your confidence can only be rebuilt by time and testing.
Neptune in the First House
Your wonderful imagination can take you far in a career or work against you, personally. Idealistic by nature, you are easily led into situations that have little or no value, or you may guide others erroneously. You are self-effacing and often self-sacrificing since it is hard to turn away those who ask your help. Unusual childhood experiences should convince you to take a second look at life before plunging headlong into spaces that even angels may avoid.
Pluto in Scorpio
You are a believer in second chances, but a tendency to hold fast to everything past the time of practicality weakens your effectiveness to accept new opportunity. You are always stronger because of the wisdom gained in past experiences. On a world-scale, you can offer the proof of your convictions that there is much that may be salvaged for renewal, rather than a stubborn determination to do things your way at the expense of the greater good.
Pluto in the Tenth House
Never mind if your foresight is not as good as your hindsight! You learn through experience and must explore a whole spectrum before making solid decisions that will stick. All knowledge you acquire can be utilized. Try to dodge the power plays you seem to invite and resist achieving success at a price to others. Yours is always a “never say die” attitude. Once you find your true calling, nothing much can keep you from the success you deserve.
You will do well in a career which involves your ability to feel out and involve others in a collaborative venture. You are emotionally intuitive, both about potential partners and about the direction of society as a whole, so that you can speak what people are feeling. You yourself may have gone through deep transformations connected to traumatic events. You are comfortable reaching down into the depths of any subject and so make a good researcher or investigator. You are happiest in an occupation which allows you to explore and produce constructive results. Your strength may involve you in a power struggle with authorities until you can achieve a compromise. Your commitment is such that you make a dangerous enemy. Some people with this placement are so inflexible that they stay with a job that they hate.
Power and control will be issues in your life. You have the ability to coordinate the efforts of others in teamwork, handling power tactfully and with concern for the rights of others. Work with others for transformation and improvement, as opposed to maintenance of the status quo, and you will enjoy great success. Selfishness, ruthlessness, and overkill are the negative possibilities of this placement. Try to spread both the effort and the benefits to others.
Occupations consistent with your intense style of work include investigator, researcher, critic, engineer, programmer, mechanic, contractor, wrecker, exterminator, dramatic writer or poet, sex therapist, tailor, musician, entrepreneur, government or large company worker, surgeon, chemist, pharmacist, detective, psychologist, mortician, insurance actuary, artist, or the military. For the most personal career guide, also consider the nature of any planets which fall in the 10th house or conjoin the Midheaven, the sign and house placements of Pluto, ruler of the Midheaven, and any aspects which other planets make to the Midheaven.
Planets in Aspect
Mercury opposite Jupiter (Strength: 9.26)
You attract opportunities which exploit your enthusiasm and positive attitude, and accept learning challenges without doubting your ability to achieve. Others may call you “cocky” or complaisant if you brag about your success. You may have a yen to travel to expand your understanding of the universe by exploring the beliefs of others. If you balance what you desire with realistic thinking, you should have no trouble in setting and reaching your goals with energy to spare.
Mercury conjunct Ascendant (Strength: 8.83)
You are quick to recognize and seize an opportunity for personal progress. You may create openings for your advancement, since no one can sell yourself better than you. You know what you want and can find a way to achieve it. Try not to react or take the criticism of others to heart, unless they are in authority, as they may stand in your way or delay your success. You know yourself well. Elevate your sights beyond what is available and set yourself higher goals.
Moon opposite Uranus (Strength: 7.91)
(The Late Bloomer)
You may be reluctant to release old patterns from early childhood, or feel guilty as you grow away from familiar habits ingrained by a mother-figure. However, your inquisitive nature presses you to explore new methods that will help you expand. Once you decide on liberation, develop patience to learn the result of your actions before insisting others follow your example, whether or not they share your enthusiasm for drastic change.
Mercury conjunct Neptune (Strength: 6.06)
Your wonderful imagination can inspire you to investigate your higher self or explore the mysteries to acquire an understanding of the deeper meanings of the occult. However, you may have difficulty distinguishing fantasy from reality which can make relationships and your goals uncertain. At times, your confusion may be so great that you will question your reason for being, but if rationale fails to satisfy you, turn inward for answers inherently and uniquely yours.
Saturn conjunct Neptune (Strength: 5.41)
Your task is to define reality as opposed to “feelings” or the confusion that often results from self-doubt. It may seem easier to believe in Murphy’s Law: “If things are bad, they’re bound to get worse.” (Or, if you prepare for disappointment, it is no surprise when it comes.) Negativity can be overcome. You have a good grasp on what works for you; the imagination to turn a sow’s ear inside out, find the silk purse inside and create practical ways to market it.
Jupiter opposite Uranus (Strength: 5.09)
(The Roller Coaster)
There is likely to be more “roll” than “coast” in your life and it is up to you to develop the ability to go with the flow of things beyond your control. What may happen when unexpected challenges occur is that a need for independence is called to your attention. If you resist change, you may be “stuck” with restrictions that limit your growth. Opportunity for expansion can allow the shedding of your burdens in trade for a new start without old hindrances to hamper you.
Neptune conjunct Ascendant (Strength: 4.78)
You are imaginative, spiritual, intuitive and romantic. With early guidance, you can develop the practicality to make your wishes come true. You are intelligent and ambitious, but must acknowledge the difference between reason and fantasy to balance your scales. Your special gifts help others to enjoy dreams they dare not dream, appreciate your compassion and admire your idealistic nature. You can soften the harsh light of reality, rather than retire into the shadows of illusion.
Moon conjunct Jupiter (Strength: 4.34)
You have a strong conviction that what you put into something will be returned in equal measure. In most cases you are right, and since you project confidence, enthusiasm, nurturing and good will, that is what you attract. However, you must avoid temptations to acquire “too much of a good thing.” You are, by nature, given to excesses. Don’t allow your optimism to lure you with empty hopes and promises into depths beyond your reach and over your head.
Uranus conjunct Ascendant (Strength: 4.18)
You are eager for the new or innovative, original in your personal goals and assume that you will achieve them. “Nothing is impossible,” because you visualize your needs and are objective enough to succeed, without becoming entangled in your emotions. You may feel partnerships are too restrictive to fit into your ever-expanding plans for the future. Freedom is important, but not at the risk of alienating you from those who would share your dreams and rejoice in your fulfillment.
Jupiter opposite Neptune (Strength: 4.06)
It is difficult for you to see “the trees for the forest” sometimes, because of your inclination to put a mask on reality. You mean well, but are extremely idealistic and can become lost in generalities, since you seldom “fine tune” the picture. Despite your abstractions, you are intuitive and may take risks that pay off. If you cannot be sure your plans are practical, take the advice of someone with more experience to keep you grounded, with a realistic chance at success.
Mercury conjunct Uranus (Strength: 3.08)
Your mind is seldom inactive, but may be too inconsistent to be productive. Fields that may interest you enough to study and follow up are science, astrology, or communications. You can open new doors through innovative, if sometimes radical ideas. You may travel by unusual modes, such as in an air balloon, or be involved in space technology as a hobby or a profession. You need structure and concentration to exploit your creative gifts, or may squander them, uselessly.
Moon inconjunct Venus (Strength: 3.01)
Your daydreams can get you into trouble, if you fail to separate them from reality. You may be inconsistent in your plans, tend to be fickle and settle for “whatever feels good.” Your self-indulgence can lead to a variety of health problems due to promiscuity in sex or “escaping” into addictive substances. Moderation in all things will help to balance your impulsive nature. At least, try to look and listen before taking a leap that may well spell your downfall.
Moon opposite Mercury (Strength: 2.54)
Rather than face the “ups and downs” of everyday life, you may withdraw to get in touch with yourself. Sort out what is “real” and what is emotional confusion that often keeps you from maintaining a position. Since you will always relate to childhood programming, it is important that you have practical guidance that will afford you security you will need as you mature. If you lack stability, periods of meditation may give you an insight to employ when you need it most.
Mercury conjunct Saturn (Strength: 2.16)
You are apt to take a negative point of view so that you can be “prepared for the worst.” If you are narrow in your opinions of people, you will criticize them out of your life, but you can also see through attempts to deceive you or correct imperfections in relationships, as long as you are open to change. Learn not to project an attitude of gloom and if you have genuine complaints, air them before they are misinterpreted through your wary actions.
Saturn conjunct Ascendant (Strength: 1.91)
You are wise beyond your years and expect to work hard to achieve your ends, which may account for a reluctance to relax and enjoy your gains. Being narrow in your views or too set in your ways can make you old before your time. Solemnity and practicality do not have to go hand-in-hand. Sharing with others will bring you what you most desire — compassion and loving warmth to melt a formidable facade with an invitation to join wholeheartedly in the game of life.
Saturn sextile Pluto (Strength: 1.15)
You utilize your possessions as though preparing for a “rainy day,” realize the value of the intrinsic and look ahead to events that may never happen. You may not enjoy youth because you are so serious about getting ahead in the world — not from need — but from an inherent desire to always have “enough.” It is doubtful you will want for much! Allow for small pleasures of time’s design. Whoever observed that “money can’t buy happiness” said a well-chosen mouthful.
Jupiter opposite Saturn (Strength: 0.32)
You may fantasize heroic adventures, but think others hold you back. You find reasons why you can’t “go and do.” The truth is you probably have trouble letting go of the familiar to explore the unknown. Though you complain, you are a hard worker, accept responsibility, and should be able to expand your horizons. To paraphrase the poet: “It is better to have tried and failed than never to have tried at all!” There is always a c
hance you will exceed your expectations!
Balance of Elements and Modalities
In your case, the heart rules the head. Your emotional drives are strong and you act primarily on the basis of your feelings. Whether your feelings are purely personal, interpersonal, or transpersonal is up to you, but generally you are a life-oriented person who feels keenly and who acts to support your family, friends, and community. You are happiest when you are in a caring relationship with a significant other. That person should be comfortable with the emotional closeness that you bring to relationships, while providing the structure or inspiration that you need. Some of your friends will not be as comfortable with emotional closeness as you are, and you will have to respect their boundaries. You have probably learned over the years how to keep your sensitive nature from being hurt. Don’t permanently withdraw, but find the people with whom and the environment in which you can be yourself.
Because of your sensitivity, you easily pick up others’ thoughts and feelings. You can anticipate others’ needs before they have expressed them. You can usually rely on your intuition when it comes to forecasting the outcome of personal and career decisions. If you decide to use your psychic abilities for healing, learn to let go of the negative feelings that you process from others. Since you are so sensitive, find quiet moments for private introspection in which you can reconnect with what you feel instead of what others feel. You also find it revitalizing to be around large bodies of water.
You do have a need to stop and think things through before acting. Make the effort to communicate with others who may have a more objective viewpoint or who could see solutions that elude you. You can sometimes be criticized for acting from a purely personal perspective, which you could avoid by learning and respecting society’s larger viewpoint. You can be very creative in finding paths to your personal goals. Keep the larger viewpoint in mind and later you will not have to try to rationalize to others why you chose those paths.
You are in touch with the real world. More than others, you know where the rubber meets the road; persistent study has shown you how to make things happen in a practical sort of way. Your nature is well-suited to the adult world of responsibilities, which you master at a young age. Not impulsive with your resources, you would only start a business after careful study, but you would manage it well. You enjoy the satisfaction that comes not just from starting projects, but from finishing them. Your steady, organized approach is actually more productive in the long-run than is that of the quick, flashy types. You know how to establish a pace and keep it.
Do not let your awareness of the material world make you unappreciative of the spiritual plane that underpins our life here — to which others may be more sensitive than you. Practicality is fine, but try to understand that dreams, feelings, and enthusiasms are also important and should not be squelched. Others might surprise you with what their optimistic risk-taking is able to achieve. You can be so cautious and reserved that some people find you conservative and dull. If you yourself become bored or depressed, admit that security isn’t everything and try to be more spontaneous. Open up to the new and follow your bliss (in a careful sort of way).
Lack of Air
Expressing yourself does not come easily to you. You distrust people who are fast, smooth talkers. It may be easier for you to express yourself nonverbally or in writing than it is through speaking. If you also lack planets in the houses of Relationships, you will find the normal avenues of communication and social learning blocked. Your thinking will be personal instead of detached or rational. With the mind’s normal communication channels blocked, you learn primarily from experience. Lacking in the ability to view yourself objectively, you gain self-understanding primarily through feedback from others.
Try to see life less personally, in a more objective way. Take classes and never stop educating yourself.
A lack of planets in Air signs can be offset by an Air sign ascendant or by abundant planets in the houses of Relationships.
Lack of Fire
You are willing to let flashier individuals take center-stage and lead the way. You are probably unenthusiastic about change and are passive when it comes to creating change through leadership. You may be aggressive in a defensive way, but lack the self-confidence to take the offensive. Lacking the impulsiveness of Fire, you are more likely to be a careful worker and a reliable mate, though you could stand to be less detached and more personally involved with your spouse and family.
A lack of planets in Fire signs can be offset by a Fire sign ascendant or by abundant planets in the houses of Life.
With abundant planets in the houses of substance, you know your place in the material world. You know how to extract value and give value via your business, work, and career activities. The rules of the world come easily to you. Others admire and depend on your hard work and practical nature. If you get depressed, make time for recreation and family.
Abundant planets in the houses of life gives you both the energy and the urge to create the future. By your activities, you make the world a better place. You may be somewhat self-centered, but with your crusading spirit you move the world towards the ideals that you envision.
Lack of Relationships
Relating to other people probably plays a minor role in your life. You could remain unmarried, be a loner, or even be an orphan. Your thinking is probably subjective or personal, without the objectivity that comes from having communicated with many people. Let others teach you by showing you and if they give you any feedback on your thinking, see if you can learn from it.
A lack of planets in the houses of Relationships can be offset by abundant planets in Air signs.
With an abundance of planets in the Cardinal signs, you find it easy to function on your own as an autonomous individual. You have a pretty good grasp of how the real world works, which you may have acquired through your willingness to try new things. An active person, you find challenges stimulating. Success comes through big ventures that others are too intimidated to attempt. You would make a good entrepreneur, but look for other indications in your chart to see if you have the qualities needed to stay with a project or grow a business. You’re not really a team player. You are likely to encounter some problems in your life as a result of being so one-sidedly focused on your own goals and activities. But you are good at overcoming problems. Personal survival is important to you and you are capable of learning. You manifest your love through a lack of fear that makes the future happen.
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.
A lack of planets in the Mutable signs can be offset by a Mutable sign ascendant or by abundant planets in the Cadent houses.
An abundance of planets in the cadent houses helps to make you versatile and adaptable. You are flexible in your plans, adapting easily to changes or to the people whom you meet. You may travel a lot or move frequently. You are a good listener and communicator. You will use your mind a lot or frequently spend time alone during your life.
An abundance of planets in the angular houses helps to give you drive and initiative. It makes you active in the external world. Expressing your individuality is important to you. You are probably a leader who enjoys challenges and can get things moving.
Lack of Succedent
A lack of planets in succedent houses gives you a certain emotional detachment. You do not pay much attention to the pleasures of the body or to cultivating a particular group of friends. Enjoying life is not the most important thing to you. You act not on the basis of feeling or principle, but from necessity. You tend to be a restless wanderer of either the world or the mind.
A lack of planets in the Succedent houses can be offset by abundant planets in the Fixed signs.
