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
Sun in Taurus
(Keynote: I OWN)
You have deep material and spiritual concerns and are patient, kind, romantic and firm in your resolves. You are also capable of being stubborn, unyielding, self-indulgent, possessive and jealous. You enjoy tangibles that have weight and intrinsic worth, and display your assets and achievements prominently. Your aesthetic hunger makes you a patron of the arts. You will forgive, but not forget an injustice. A need for security can override your integrity, but you will defend your means to achieve an end because you cannot accept yourself if others find you wanting.
Moon in Scorpio
Your ability to attract is so powerful that you can bring about almost anything you wish — and some things that you would rather evade. Your emotions are intense and close to the surface. You project them into your manner, and when you speak it is usually with authority so that others are compelled to listen. You are self-reliant and would rather fight your battles alone with the confidence you will emerge as victor. You are as determined in love as you are in conflicts, but few understand the intensity of your dominant nature or have a desire to endure your possessiveness.
Mercury in Gemini
Your geniality plus a sense-of-humor contributes to social graces that make you a welcome addition to any group. Your lack of patience encourages you to store trivia instead of knowledge, while limited concentration makes you an uncertain student. You usually accept people at face value; since you are more interested in quantity rather than the quality of companions, you enjoy changing relationships often, but pride yourself on “never losing a friend.”
Venus in Taurus
You love comfort, luxury and things that appeal to your senses. You are a party-giver, with a liking for rich foods, and a particular fondness for chocolate. Music is a major part of your life and strongly affects your moods. Dissonance produces nervousness and harmony soothes and quiets you. You are a traditionalist who enjoys the security of the tried-and-true and are not given to accepting the unconventional without a thorough understanding of a need for change.
Mars in Taurus
You may disregard your instincts for harmony, patience and even the practicality for which you are known and stubbornly “bull” your way towards your ambitions. You will work to capacity and, one way or another, gain all-important financial rewards; then find someone to share your affections as well as your success. You are a “powerhouse” who can manifest what you dream, enjoy what you earn, and discover the symmetry necessary to maintain the stability you require.
Jupiter in Aquarius
You are truly liberal in your humanitarian views. What some call “idealistic,” you practice as a way of life. You sympathize with minority needs and work with the majority to improve mankind. Visionary gifts allow you a glimpse of the future. If you succeed in your efforts to enrich the world, it will be a far better place in which to live.
Saturn in Leo
You may have trouble in sharing all the love you have to give or finding the love you crave, and so allow an “I don’t care” attitude to become a mask, under which you hide your true feelings. You can also substitute imperiousness for emotional rapport and again deny your basic needs. Try to go with the world instead of against it. You may find a way to turn your negatives positive and enjoy the spin instead of just becoming dizzy and wanting to get off.
Uranus in Gemini
Your facility to see clearly where others are perplexed separates you from the norm. You may obtain an education in unorthodox ways, but have the ability to distinguish yourself in the field of science, perhaps in space technology. Your “Buck Rogers” mentality will bring you some regard, but also can provoke criticism as being too eccentric to be practical. You may find a way to jar humanity from today’s complaisant rut and into the expansive future of tomorrow.
Neptune in Libra
You are subject to peer pressure which may not always serve your best interests. Because you are an idealist, you may be drawn into causes that are without substance. You seldom attempt anything alone, and prefer groups to a partner. If your dreams don’t interfere with the reality of a material world, you can inspire others to adopt altruistic ways of living. It is your belief that what we have is not as important as our willingness to share it.
Pluto in Leo
Your ability to keep things at a fever pitch needs careful regulating to avoid constant upheaval in your life and the lives of others. Your senses are keen. Use them to recognize a need for transforming human affairs. Take your place in bettering your environment by helping others to better theirs. It is preferable to accept the accolades of your peers for your good work than to indulge the self-aggrandizement negatively associated with your sign.
North Node in Aries
You project confidence, but are plagued with doubt that you can produce all that you promise. You dislike calling others for assistance because it means exposing your soft underbelly. When you learn you have many supporters waiting to follow your lead, you may discover that “your own person” is the “you” you wanted to be all along.
Planets in Aspect
Sun opposite Moon (Strength: 6.52)
(The Tug O’War)
You feel that others do not understand you and constantly oppose your ideas or goals. Close relationships suffer if you vent anger or resentment. At times, you may feel pulled in two directions. If your life is one of endless indecision and emotional turmoil, you must recognize that the conflict is within you. Rely on inner feelings to validate your actions. In times of stress you will find what “works for you” and use your enormous energy in a positive manner.
Mercury trine Neptune (Strength: 5.87)
You are a romantic who enjoys fantasizing dreams. You will not be easily discouraged if you exercise a talent for writing. There are those who will appreciate your efforts. You can be a daydreamer, but are also in touch with reality. Though you may dislike discipline, you are capable of using it to achieve your aims. Because of your affinity with humanity, you may sacrifice to help others, validating the spiritual insight inherent in your sympathetic nature.
Venus square Saturn (Strength: 4.71)
You expect relationships to conform to your standards, which can make a bonding permanent but sacrifice the interaction of stimulation and growth. In business or personal partnerships, it is impossible to hold a line that is altogether unbending and expect everyone to be happy within its perimeters. Communication is vital to your unions to find ways to endure that will not make you feel isolated or alone, even though you are bound to one another.
Saturn sextile Uranus (Strength: 2.98)
You manage a balance between the conventional and the innovative to pursue your own methods of accomplishing your aims. Because you understand equal value in both sides of a coin, you employ the patience required to set foundations under new platforms for structures of lasting value. You may also adopt unusual concepts as an intricate part of your lifestyle, so again achieve a harmony of creativity and established ideas with a high rate of acceptance by others.
Neptune sextile Pluto (Strength: 2.65)
It is important that you have the support of your family and friends. You are extremely sensitive and subject yourself to self-criticism that can be destructive and depressing. It may be that you need professional help to build your self-esteem. Later, you may transfer your intense feelings into knowledge you share with others. You may pursue a career in psychiatry or psychology, but will continue to investigate your own psyche for answers as to what “makes you tick.”
Mercury sextile Pluto (Strength: 2.52)
Your favorite question may be “Why?” and you will not be content with superficial answers. You have the drive and persistence to penetrate the heart of any matter that piques your curiosity. Once you are sure of your facts, you seldom change your mind. The same is true of your opinion of others. You may investigate a relationship before getting involved, and will either become a friend for life or turn your back on an association you are sure will go nowhere.
Venus trine Jupiter (Strength: 2.07)
You are happy with who you are, where you are and what you are, so are pleasantly agreeable as a friend or social companion. The only thing that may prevent you from becoming rich and/or famous is your tendency to take it easy and your belief that tomorrow will take care of itself. This may or not be true, but you will never know if you don’t summon the energy to round a corner and see for yourself how you may enhance your dreams and bring them to fruition.
Mars square Pluto (Strength: 1.03)
You may trip over your ego as you determine your goals and act in your own behalf to the exclusion of others. You are aware of strength and unusual power to confront the world, but if you force your way rather than prove your worth, you are sure to attract power struggles which will impede your progress. Question your values in your rise to success to discover whether you are acting and reacting from vanity or a genuine desire to improve your position through hard work.
Jupiter inconjunct Saturn (Strength: 0.36)
Unwillingness to accept half-way measures may result in ambivalence. You tend to blow “hot or cold,” and be overboard or strictly reserved in opinions and actions. Others are unsure of your intentions. You may also experience extremes in the way others treat you. Being too set in your ways can result in holdups or stoppage of your best-laid plans, or you may act in haste and have second-thoughts too late to rectify your recklessness. Walk a middle-road to achieve success.
Sun conjunct Venus (Strength: 0.28)
You are refined and cultured with a love of the arts and beautiful things. Because a day without fun is depressing, you make yourself attractive and available and are usually where something entertaining is going on. You can become self-indulgent and conceited, believing money and looks will take you farther than is reasonable, but when you see that “Pretty is as Pretty does,” will try to develop inner qualities to complement the glamorous image you project.
Moon square Pluto (Strength: 0.27)
Constant challenges for change control your deepest feelings because your emotional turbulence can be destructive. Power struggles with others indicate power struggles within yourself which must be brought to light for resolution. Sometimes you will be attracted to that which is absolutely wrong for you but will pursue it anyway to your detriment. Recognize your difficulties as opportunities for evolvement. You have more than adequate fortitude to survive and benefit.
Balance of Elements and Modalities
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).
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.
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.
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.
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 Cardinal
With a lack of planets in Cardinal signs, you may have trouble starting things. You may be timid about developing and carrying out plans. You would prefer to let others break the first ground of a new venture, so that you can pitch in and help once the outlines of the venture are clear. You probably lack confidence in your mastery of the real world and survival in it. You may substitute a rich inner life for your lack of action in the outer world. In its highest form, you may be unusually creative or spiritually committed. Ideas filter up as you focus on ‘being’ instead of ‘doing’. Watch out for the lower manifestations, which are delegating tasks to others and pitying yourself over the lot that befalls you in life as a result of your lack of direction and initiative. Your different perspective on life gives you valuable insights that let you make real contributions wherever you are.
A lack of planets in the Cardinal signs can be offset by a Cardinal sign ascendant or by abundant planets in the Angular houses.
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.
