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 and Houses
Your ascendant indicates how you express yourself and therefore also shows how other people see you. With a Leo Ascendant, you will appear to demonstrate Leo qualities to others, even though your Sun sign may not be Leo. You will appear to others as a self-confident, generous, loyal, affectionate person.
You are very honest and straightforward and seem not to be very complex or hard to understand. You are charming, cheerful and capable of being a successful social butterfly. You make good first impressions on people and have no shortage of friends. Your friends probably admire you greatly and may even look to you for guidance or leadership.
You are a noble, optimistic person and have a great deal of physical energy. In love affairs, you are very passionate and generous but are also prone to losing your temper. Be careful not to overwhelm your partner with your ardor. Too much affection and lavishing can be suffocating.
People with Leo Ascendant are most often physically attractive. This usually means they have a constant flow of potential sexual partners into their lives. They must learn to exercise discrimination in choosing sexual partners. Remember that what’s inside the person is much more important than their physical appearance.
Sun in Gemini
“I wish you wouldn’t keep appearing
And vanishing so suddenly
You make one quite giddy!”
This time it vanished quite slowly,
beginning with the end of the tail,
and ending with the grin,
which remained for some time
after the rest of it had gone.
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
Like the Cheshire cat which Alice encountered in Wonderland, Geminis are very unpredictable and constantly changing. The sign is ruled by Mercury, and the metal of the same name is also known as Quicksilver. If you’ve ever tried to grab a ball of liquid Mercury, you can understand how elusive Geminis are.
The Gemini personality is ever-changing, and it may seem as though there are at least two people inhabiting his or her body. Geminis seem to buzz with energy and are constantly on the move, usually handling several different projects at once. They need variety and change in their life, and they should never choose an occupation which involves redundant or repetitive work. Natives of this sign love to communicate and probably talk a lot. They enjoy intellectual discourse, are often masters at debate, and are usually well-informed and well-read. They often have a talent for and a desire to write. Open communication is very important to them in their relationships.
The older they get, the younger Geminis seem to grow. They never lose their impish smile and youthful attitude toward life. And they often get along quite well with children. Like a child, Geminis do not often engage in introspection. It takes a drastic situation to get them to sit down and probe their own motives. Geminis are often more aware of others’ inner workings than their own.
Geminis have an insatiable appetite for knowledge and take great delight in new discoveries. They also enjoy traveling and can learn a great deal from journeys to other parts of the world. Since they do like to chase all the lovely butterflies that fly past them in life, they can often be unreliable and have a problem meeting commitments. In fact, Geminis find such responsibility to be somewhat scary. There’s always something newer and more exciting just around the next corner.
Sun in the Eleventh House
An active social life is important to you, and you enjoy being with your many varied friends. Others will often see you as a leader and will follow your example. You work well in groups, especially those which are working for a good cause. You are idealistic about the future and expect to achieve your highest goals in life. You would be satisfied with nothing less.
You care a great deal for those closest to you. Although you will have many friends, there will only be a select few in your inner circle. You are sincere, loyal, and basically unselfish in your dealings with others. Others like being around you because you are considerate of their feelings and needs.
In affairs of the heart it is relatively easy for you to find partners. You tend to bring out the best in your lover, encouraging them to take better care of themselves. This is also true in your surroundings — you are always trying to improve the quality of life around you. It is important that any lover you choose be able to keep up with your social pace. You would not be happy for long with a wallflower.
Moon in Sagittarius
Persons with this moon placement know their own emotional make-up very well and are able to make required adjustments in life quite easily. They have a strong sense of direction in life and set high goals for themselves. Others are continually amazed as they set seemingly impossible goals for themselves and then go on to achieve them. The only danger is that they will become ruthless in their pursuit of success and reach the top with no friends to congratulate them.
Although they are good at combining business with pleasure, when the chips are down business always wins out. Lunar Sagittarians are eternally optimistic, even when they should be exercising caution instead. They are often dedicated to philosophical causes and may even participate in non-political revolutionary practices at home or in the office. They want to make a difference–to influence the lives of others.
Gambling is a potential problem with this Moon placement, and this is partially a result of overoptimism. Natives may believe that they simply cannot lose and therefore take unconsidered risks. Although they feel very lucky, they actually are not.
Romantically, persons with Moon in Sagittarius are great companions to their mates. They need more than just sexual fulfillment from their partners–they require romance and spirituality. If it is necessary to terminate a relationship, they do so quickly and cleanly without looking back. They know something better is waiting just around the next corner.
Moon in the Fifth House
Your feelings are strong and you are honest with others about your emotions. Entertainment is important to you, and you enjoy attending the theater and attending social gatherings. Just be careful not to party too hardy. When you are in such high spirits you may take unwise risks with your health. There is also the possibility that you will get carried away by emotions at such times.
The older you get, the more you seem to enjoy young children. For this reason you would make a good teacher of youngsters, whether this is done in a classroom or through setting an example with your life. Children (and adults) can appreciate your poetic imagination and your openness. Although you may not actively seek the spotlight in life, you don’t mind a little publicity every now and then.
Your friends and loved ones are inspired by your enthusiasm for life. It is easy for you to make friends, and you reap much joy from your close relationships. This Moon placement indicates that you will go through a multiplicity of love relationships during your life. This is partly due to your popularity with others and also your tendency to exit a relationship when it becomes too complicated. Learn to face such difficulties head-on instead of running from them. This will be much more satisfying in the end.
Mercury in Cancer
You have an intuitive mind and at times can pick up other people’s feelings psychically. You are very sympathetic to the needs of others and will find yourself worrying about the problems of loved ones or of the world in general. Mercury in Cancer also gives you an appreciation for your home and family, and especially for children.
It is difficult for you to separate your thoughts from your emotions, and this is one of the challenges you face in life. You spend a good deal of time thinking and talking about yourself. Don’t allow yourself to get so caught up in depression and despair in a seemingly hopeless situation that you are unable to take appropriate action to solve your problems.
You are easily impressed by everything you pick up through your senses (sights, sounds and smells) and overreact to great ugliness or beauty. This extreme sensitivity to the world around you can be creatively channeled through art or other creative activities. Since you have such a strong need to be needed, you depend on compliments and praise from others to raise your spirits.
You value your privacy and share your innermost feelings with very few people. Once you choose a lover, you are very devoted and loyal. You need little more in life than someone to love and a comfortable home. Indeed, you tend to be more of a “home body” than a socialite, and you need a partner who has similar preferences.
Mercury in the Eleventh House
You enjoy associating with friends who are as clever and intellectually stimulating as you are. You are a humanitarian thinker and recognize that society must consider the needs of all its members. Since you work well with groups, you are a valuable team member. You try to get along with everyone and are probably well known and respected in your neighborhood.
Venus in Cancer
Although you may be shy and quiet, you have considerable charm. You treat loved ones with sympathy and tenderness, providing the emotional nurturing that they need. It is important that you have the love and devotion of your friends and family. This provides you with a wonderful sense of inner security. Just be careful that you do not let others take advantage of your generosity. There will always be those who will try.
Your home is very important to you, and you will want your living environment to be peaceful and comfortable. From an early age, you have been closely tied to your family, especially your mother. Since you have a need to relate to others, you would do well in occupations such as teaching or health care.
You seek a deep love in which you can merge souls and personalities with your lover. You are totally devoted to your mate, and you seek such devotion in return. Be careful that this devotion does not turn into jealousy and possessiveness, which could result in your lover feeling trapped. Remember that a truly strong relationship is based on two strong individuals who share mutual goals.
Your sexual appetite is quite strong, partly because you allow your sexual energy to build for a while before releasing it. If you find this to be frustrating, try communicating your needs to your partner before you reach that point. They can only satisfy your needs if they are aware of them.
Venus in the Twelfth House
Since you are rather shy and reserved about showing your love for others, you enjoy spending time alone. With your strong sense of compassion and desire to serve others, you need to take time away from the needs of others to recharge your batteries. You are very private about your affairs and may even keep your affairs secret. Be careful not to overindulge in drink or drugs.
Mars in Leo
With Mars in Leo, you are highly creative and artistically talented. You also have the enthusiasm, dedication and ambition required to put these gifts to good use. And, unlike some other Mars placements, you will not be modest or shy about it.
You are impulsive and passionate about most everything in life, no matter what age you may be. The only danger of this Mars placement is that pride may make you stubborn and quarrelsome. Don’t let your pride get you into difficult situations. Know when to say you’re not physically up to an impossible challenge. Otherwise, you could strain your body, and specifically your heart.
You are a warm, loyal and open lover and are extremely generous with your partner. You don’t have much patience for elaborate courting rituals, but you are a very attentive lover once the ice has been broken. You will go to extreme lengths to make your lovemaking sessions perfect and to be creative in the bedroom. Be sure not to steal the show, though; let your partner come up with his or her own ideas.
Mars in Leo gives you the gift of being able to make any love affair or romantic situation a magical one. You treat your lover like royalty, and you are very pleased if they return the favor. Most of all, your partner must respect you and allow you to maintain your dignity (the famous Leo pride). You would not be happy, for instance, with someone who was obnoxious or otherwise embarrassed you in public.
Mars in the First House
You are very impulsive and often restless, and for this reason you sometimes “rub people the wrong way.” With your assertive nature, others may get the impression you are looking for a fight when you are only seeking friendly competition. You enjoy being physically active; just be careful that your impatience does not result in carelessness. You’d rather be a leader than a follower.
Jupiter in Libra
You are friendly and outgoing, and you enjoy entertaining guests. Since you strive for higher social status, you will do your best to become successful in your career. Because you have difficulty making up your mind, you may miss opportunities because you fail to act in a timely manner. Traditionally, this placement of Jupiter indicates that you will eventually have a happy marriage (or equivalent), although it may not be your first. If afflicted, Jupiter in Libra can indicate recurring legal problems.
Jupiter in the Third House
You have a sharp, restless mind and an intense curiosity about life. Because you easily comprehend the information you absorb, you would be an excellent teacher, writer or public speaker. You enjoy travel and would be happy in an occupation which keeps you moving. If you cannot travel to foreign lands, you will enjoy reading about them. You will receive support from your siblings and peers.
Saturn in Cancer
You are very protective and nurturing of loved ones, although sometimes you may worry unnecessarily. Since you are extremely afraid of being hurt by others, you may withdraw from interaction with others when feeling depressed. You may have considered both your mother and father to be inadequate parental role models, and therefore you must develop your own ideal of parental behavior. As a result, you may feel uncertain about your ability to be a good parent.
Saturn in the Twelfth House
You are extremely sensitive and have deep self-doubt. Because you consider most people better or more talented than you, you may retreat from social contacts and/or devote your life to serving others. Even though others may praise your accomplishments, you usually believe they are just humoring you. Karmically, you feel you must make restitution for pain you caused others in previous lives.
Uranus in Gemini
You have a highly active mind and are an innovative thinker. With your talent for grasping the most abstract concepts, you learn new ideas quickly and easily and would be a good writer. Since your mental energies can become scattered, you will be most productive if you can focus on one project at a time. Make time to relax and sooth your nervous disposition to avoid physical illness.
Uranus in the Eleventh House
You have many acquaintances, but few close friends, and they are all unique in some way. You are drawn to unconventional groups with humanitarian goals which are considered to be rebellious and radical. During your life you will have many friends who are involved in occult or metaphysical sciences, including astrology. You will insist that your friends respect your beliefs, even if they don’t agree.
Neptune in Libra
You have a strong desire for peace, harmony and justice and will work to bring about humanitarian reforms. Your ideas about relationships are much different from your parents’. You must learn to compromise and to sacrifice what you want if necessary in order to achieve balance.
Neptune in the Second House
You are extremely sensitive and will benefit from following your intuitive hunches. Because you have faith in the Universe to take care of you, you place little emphasis on money or other material possessions. For this reason, you tend to be generous and share with those less fortunate. If Neptune is afflicted, you may have a strong insecurity about money which results in desperate acts of fraud or deception.
Pluto in Leo
Your generation saw the birth of greater autonomy and self-rule among the world’s nations, as well as the hippy movement. New labor-saving devices created more leisure time. Television entered our lives, and the entertainment industry mushroomed. You have a strong desire to creatively solve the world’s problems.
Pluto in the Twelfth House
With your strong interest in puzzles and mysteries, you are a natural born investigator or researcher. You may hold yourself back or try to hide parts of yourself from others because you fear disapproval, but this only makes them more suspicious of you. You have a strong desire to serve the less fortunate members of society. If Pluto is afflicted, avoid a tendency toward self-pity and depression.
You will do best in a career that offers steady growth, a career in which you can study what works and then be the one to provide stability and direction for the organization. As long as you are earning a good income, enjoy positive relations with your coworkers, and have a little beauty where you work, you will be content to work quietly. You are unlikely to push for change or to be combative in the workplace, unless someone affronts your pride.
You are good at cultivating relations with people, as opposed to things, and will extend yourself to others in the workplace. Your network of personal connections and inside knowledge, gained over time, makes you quite a resourceful employee. You have faith in common sense and the existing order. Change throws you off-balance. If you are emotionally stressed, you may regard acquiring material possessions to be some sort of solution, which it is not. You could also become surprisingly stubbon and vocal in your displeasure. Remember that you have developed many resources. Concentrate upon cultivating and using them for the common good.
Occupations consistent with your stable, practical style of work include official, executive, artist, singer, musician, designer, beautician, banker, business investor, property manager, farmer, stockbreeder, evangelist, advertiser, builder or public servant. 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 Venus, ruler of the Midheaven, and any aspects which other planets make to the Midheaven.
North Node in Gemini
You have spent many lifetimes seeking knowledge and freedom, and have developed definite philosophies about life. You lived these lifetimes seeking personal liberty, with little interest or involvement in the society around you. During this lifetime you will learn to recognize the benefits of interaction with others. With your broader understanding of the universe, it is time for you to learn to communicate your beliefs and bring them into concrete form. Remember, you have to stop seeking something in order to find it.
North Node in the Eleventh House
In past lifetimes you were in a position of leadership and lived in luxury. In this lifetime you will devote your energy and creativity to groups with humanitarian goals rather than to your own selfish ego gratification. You will learn to value friendship as much as you once valued your material possessions. Listen to your dreams, for they bring you higher guidance.
Chiron in Libra
Your personal relationships are very important to you, and you will learn and grow a great deal through your partners. Your love life is often troublesome, and you may lose a special love during your lifetime that leaves you mourning for years. If this does happen, try not to let it affect your trust in love and people in general.
Your relationship with your parent of the opposite sex was probably inharmonious, and you may tend to attract partners who will mirror the problems you had with that parent. After a while, you may believe that relationships are more trouble than they’re worth. Just remember, since there are no perfect people, there are also no perfect relationships.
Chiron in the Third House
You have an extremely sharp and inquisitive mind, and you enjoy solving puzzles or conducting experiments that challenge you intellectually. You believe that all things are possible if you have the right information and the right attitude. You have a wicked sense of humor, and you enjoy sharing it with others in discussions or by writing.
Your relationships with your siblings or early childhood schoolmates have influenced you greatly, either by positive or negative example. You will grow a great deal from these relationships, and so will they. Some people with this Chiron placement have a brother or sister who is handicapped.
Planets in Aspect
Moon conjunct South Node (Strength: 7.84)

Jupiter trine Uranus (Strength: 6.13)
If you take full advantage of your creative talents, you can achieve whatever goals you set for yourself. You are quick to recognize opportunity when it knocks, and some people would consider you extremely “lucky.”
You could do well in a career in education, politics, law, and religion. You are a good leader and are especially good with children. People will often come to you with their problems.
It is essential that you have personal freedom, and you will fight anyone who tries to restrict you. Travel would be very mind-expanding for you, and you should take advantage of any opportunity to visit new lands.
You are always sincere (even with your enemies) and are warm toward your friends. You are very optimistic and have a good deal of faith in your abilities. You can become impatient with others who never seem to try to succeed but instead expect to fail before they begin.
You need total honesty from your love partner and will offer him or her much spiritual encouragement. You are well known among your friends for being unselfish and giving.
Jupiter sextile Ascendant (Strength: 5.86)
You are very congenial and generous and have no difficulty attracting and making friends. Others appreciate your optimism and easygoing nature, and you’ll find that you get through difficult times thanks to a little help from your friends. You always insist on seeing the best side of a person, yet you have no room in your life for those who are determined to be pessimistic and petty.
Since you are well-informed on a variety of subjects, you are a stimulating conversationalist. Because of this talent, you would be successful at writing, public speaking, or teaching. In any partnership you can be relied upon to live up to your responsibilities and carry your own weight. You truly strive to be the best you can be at everything you do, and you admire this quality in others as well. If a friend is in need, you will gladly give of your time and your resources in order to help.
As a lover you are very direct in communication as well as in your approach to sex. You have a healthy adventurous attitude toward sex, and you can help your partner relax and share in the adventure. You are most attracted to a partner who shares your optimistic perspective and is willing to be spontaneous and daring.
Uranus sextile Ascendant (Strength: 5.27)
You are a very independent person and are quite outspoken about your opinions. While you do not expect everyone to agree with your views, you do expect them to respect your right to have strong views. You have an active and highly creative mind, and you are always interested in a new subject or different perspective. You keep up with the changing trends in society and are quick to abandon the old, traditional way of doing things in favor of the new method. This is great, as long as you don’t throw away something valuable just because it’s old.
Whatever career you choose must allow you a great deal of independence and autonomy. Time is meaningless to you, and you resent being limited by the concept. You are highly inventive and would do well in any career which would allow you to implement your creativity, such as in researching and developing new products. One of your greatest strengths is your never-ending supply of unique and novel ideas. If you follow your intuition, many of your hunches will turn out to be prophetic. You will find it difficult to retire because you are continually finding new interests.
Your have friends from all races, cultures and economic backgrounds. You prefer to surround yourself with other independent thinkers and enjoy sharing different perspectives with them. You are an innovative and creative lover, and you desire a partner who is comfortable enough with their sexuality to engage in fantasies with you.
Sun conjunct North Node (Strength: 4.88)
This aspect tends to subsume your individuality in service to your community. You are sensitive to others and very observant. You could be shy and quiet. This aspect makes you a gentle person with a calm core. You have a strong commitment to your family. Your living needs tend to be simple.
Pluto square Midheaven (Strength: 4.39)
You are highly ambitious and set lofty goals for yourself professionally. Although you are anxious to succeed, it would be unwise for you to take unethical shortcuts or to step on others in your climb to the top. This aspect is particularly karmic in nature, and what goes around surely will come back around to haunt you.
Because your emotional depth is evident to others, you may often be approached for advice or guidance. While you may be able to be of assistance by counseling others, be sure you remember that they are running their own lives. Resist the temptation to control and manipulate others for your own gratification. Instead, try to empower them so they can transform their own lives.
You have a strong desire to help cure the ills of society and make the world in general a better place. Although you seek material success, your greatest reward will be obtained by using any power you gain to help those less fortunate. Others will be inspired by your dedication and will follow your example.
Mercury sextile Midheaven (Strength: 4.29)
You have a very sharp mind, and you will quickly become bored if you lack intellectual stimulation. Because you actively seek out mental challenges, you enjoy solving puzzles and mysteries of all kinds. Learning brings you great joy, and you enjoy studying new subjects.
Although you are quick to grasp and understand even the most unusual concepts, it may not always be easy for you to explain this knowledge to others. This is because you use your highly-developed sense of intuition to collect information, and it may be difficult to use words to describe your intuitive impressions.
You probably chose your life goals early in life, and your parents were very supportive and helped you acquire the education and training you needed to pursue your dreams. your intuitive understanding of others, and of human nature in general, will contribute to your success in both your personal and professional lives.
Moon opposite Uranus (Strength: 4.20)
You experience many emotional ups and downs as you attempt to balance your intellect and your emotions. It may always seem that you cannot have them both functioning satisfactorily in your life at the same time. This balancing act will become easier as you mature. Be patient and know that this conflict within you is resolvable.
In truth, you are suffering from lack of confidence in your ability to relate well to others. While you are anxious to meet new friends and form close relationships, you are insecure about “putting yourself out there” in your interchanges with others. Just relax and be yourself; you are very lovable. People sense the protective wall you put up around yourself and are deflected by it. Don’t be afraid to respond to others with warmth and love. Remember: whatever you want to receive in life, be willing to give it to others.
You often find yourself involved in the decisions of others, and you may even make your living dealing with the personal affairs of others. Teaching would be a good profession for you; and as you inspire self-confidence in others, you will also build it in yourself.
Romantically, your love life is anything but “normal.” You seem to end up with lovers who are already attached or are otherwise unavailable to you. The most complicated and even bizarre qualities of a relationship actually appeal to you. Maybe this is your own way of remaining unattached. You enjoy being free to flirt with others, even though you may not consummate the seduction physically. For this reason, some partners may find you a bit of a “tease.”
Maintain good health by taking time off for nothing but relaxation. Otherwise, nervous distress could become physical distress. Go out to the country, enjoy some peace and quiet, do pleasant things.
Venus conjunct Saturn (Strength: 4.10)
Your sound judgment allows you to be self-disciplined in matters of economics. This means you are well-suited to careers in banking, finance, insurance, real estate, law, sales and other areas which require the prudent handling of resources. You would especially enjoy a position which allowed you to work alone or at least to call the shots. You are willing to work hard for what you get, and your employer can be sure that the job will be well done.
In your personal relationships you may feel that you do more giving than receiving. It may seem that you are always the one who is forced to compromise in order to meet the needs of another. This may leave you with the feeling that you are being used. You are reluctant to let your truest feelings be known in a relationship, because you are afraid that would give your partner the upper hand in dealing with you. However, you are very loyal and sincerely affectionate and may even decide to put up with an unsatisfactory relationship out of a strong feeling of commitment.
You prefer a partner who is sincere and honest and who takes life seriously. You seek maturity and security in a mate as well as social status. Anyone with whom you spend a great deal of time must be refined and socially gracious. You admire ambition and drive in another as well as loyalty and a commitment to working together toward mutual goals.
It is important that you maintain a positive attitude toward life. Becoming negative and depressed can lead to health problems, especially in the throat area. Learn to be more optimistic even in gloomy situations.
Moon trine Ascendant (Strength: 3.84)
This aspect gives you an active imagination and much talent for creative expression. You are easy-going, sensitive and emotionally poised and appreciate the sense of values that your parents instilled in you. You are articulate in communicating your ideas, and you are quite resourceful in bringing your creative ideas to fruition. Even if you have to do without some of the comforts of life in order to achieve your goals, you are determined to do so.
You are willing to make sacrifices in your personal life in order to achieve your goals. This could entail postponing marriage until after college or waiting to have children until your career is established. You need to receive appreciation for your efforts, especially those whom you have helped the most. Just be sure that others do not take unfair advantage of your good nature; choose your friends carefully.
In your close relationships you express your feelings quite naturally, and you communicate with your partner through body language and facial expressions as well as with words. As a matter of fact, you prefer this subtle–almost psychic–method of communication.
You were probably very close to your mother as a child, and she had more influence than anyone else on your behavior and your attitude toward relationships. You have a strong need to be loved and to be needed by your friends and loved ones.
Uranus conjunct North Node (Strength: 3.12)
This aspect makes you good at technology and information management. You are inventive and can pursue innovative new methods. You could be a restless character with a lot of pent-up energy. You could start out independent and rebellious. You are pretty open-minded about new ways of behaving and doing things. The danger with this aspect is high-handed arrogance. You may have the intelligence to invent new means to power, but you should not let that dehumanize you. You can evolve into an idealist who wants to help people.
Mercury square Neptune (Strength: 3.06)
You tend to be an escapist, and your fear of facing responsibility can cause problems, both emotionally and materially. Your imagination often interferes with your logical mental processes, and you have difficulty seeing the world realistically. This problem was at least partly caused by early parental conditioning.
Unless you can learn to operate in the real world, your progress in life will be limited at best. You are extremely sensitive, and little problems seem like big ones to you. Although you have a great deal of creative talent, you shy away from competition. You need to learn to build up your own self-confidence and to exercise greater self-discipline. All the problems you encounter must be dealt with; they will not go away by themselves. Just don’t take on more than you can handle; realize your limitations and don’t exceed them.
In a career you could do well in writing, education, art, acting, or in social programs that are designed to help others. By helping others solve their problems, you learn to solve your own. Don’t “spread yourself too thin”; rather, concentrate on one project at a time, focusing your energy in that area.
In your love life you should be careful not to let your imagination run away with you. Don’t misinterpret someone’s casual interest in you to mean that they are madly in love with you; this only sets you up for disappointment. Be sure that your lover is genuinely sincere before making a strong commitment. You are a person who is easily deceived and taken advantage of. You don’t like being lonely and will take on a less than satisfactory partner to avoid it. Instead, try getting into your creative talents when you are alone.
Jupiter trine North Node (Strength: 2.69)
You could be interested in educating the world. You could act as the moral conscience for the world or for your community. You have compassion and caring. You could get involved with a local service club like Kiwanis, Lions, or Rotary. You could be active in your church. You like being a member of a team.
Neptune sextile BlackMoon (Strength: 2.57)
This positive aspect from Neptune is found in the charts of successful men more so than from any other planet, including Jupiter. You are a colorful character who throws himself whole-heartedly into life. Your lack of inhibitions helps you to give it your all and stand out from the crowd. Plus, your mental antennae are always soaking up new information, so that you tend to be on the futuristic cutting edge. New technology attracts your interest. You can help guide and shape how it is used. You can be an advocate for anything that speeds up chores and communication. A man with this aspect declared, “Everything that makes for speed contributes to happiness and is a distinct gain to civilization.” As a public speaker, your enthusiasm can translate well to an audience. When you commit yourself to doing something, you do it well. If you have kids, being there for them is important to you. Others find you a likable and sympathetic man.
Had a distinctive voice.
Sun opposite Moon (Strength: 2.40)
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.
Sun conjunct Uranus (Strength: 2.00)
This aspect indicates that you enjoy a high degree of self-awareness. You do not hesitate to express yourself in your own uniquely creative way and don’t care that others consider you to be somewhat off-beat. Your freedom is of the utmost importance to you, and you are genuinely appalled when anyone tries to restrict you. You insist that those around you allow you to be yourself and will not hesitate to give others a large piece of your mind.
If anyone does succeed in restricting your freedom, you will fight tirelessly to regain it. You have no patience for limiting or old-fashioned customs and traditions and see that change can be quite beneficial. However, this does make it difficult for you to succeed in the established world of business. While some may appreciate your innovative ideas and new outlook on life, most will just consider you unstable.
You developed an overly self-confident attitude in early childhood, and you were undoubtedly difficult for your parents to control. Your elders may have been shocked at times at your advanced level of maturity in light of your seemingly rash and rebellious actions. In truth, you grew up rather quickly and for this reason were often misunderstood by peers as well as elders.
It is imperative that you be able to exercise a great deal of freedom in your chosen occupation. You rebel against doing the same job day after day and insist that you be allowed to perform assigned tasks in your own unique way. If you can arrange to have this freedom, you will excel in your field. You would do well in education, science, politics, or other areas which allow you to deal creatively with technical subjects. You can make good use of your intuition and futuristic outlook in these fields and, in the case of a career in education, you can inspire youngsters to get to know themselves better.
You live life with a live-and-let-live attitude and freely grant the freedom to others that you expect in return. Because you tend to be constantly on the move, you need a mate who is more grounded and earthy. This will provide you with the balance you need to enjoy a rich and rewarding life.
Moon sextile Jupiter (Strength: 1.77)
You have incredible intellectual ability, which is complemented by your emotional sensitivity. Others find you exciting and stimulating, and you will always remember a friend who has helped you in the past. It is relatively easy for you to learn from your mistakes in life, and you have an excellent memory. You have genuine sympathy for those who are less fortunate and can be effective in helping them develop optimism and hope.
Any occupation which requires applying your intellectual abilities would be satisfying for you. You are very good at solving day-to-day problems and would do well in medicine, education, public relations, writing, economics (even stock brokerage), social work, and in physical rehabilitation. You are capable of absorbing tremendous amounts of information almost by osmosis; very little escapes your sharp mind. An occupation requiring contact with the public would be good for you because you have a good understanding of what makes other people tick.
In your relationships you are warm, sincere and honest. You prefer that your mate also be a true companion and that the two of you stimulate growth in each other. You will not rush into relationships blindly but rather will allow it to grow at its own pace. Your friends and lovers will admire you greatly.
You are very optimistic and can cheer a friend or lover who is down. As a matter of fact, you have an innate ability to always see something positive in everyone, no matter how rotten they are. If you keep a journal of your life, it would probably make an impressive book someday.
Ascendant sextile North Node (Strength: 1.76)
This aspect gives you luck and a lot of energy to burn. You could do it in sports or through being a workaholic. It gives the possibility of a happy marriage. You are someone who is engaged with life and who values it.
Sun trine Jupiter (Strength: 1.56)
You are a very generous person–toward yourself as well as others. Your optimism and self-confidence inspire others, and they find you a comfort to be around. Therefore, others often come to you with their problems in order to be reassured by your positive attitude. Children are especially drawn to you.
You are blessed with the gift of creativity, but you must provide the impetus to use it constructively. This aspect can give you an erroneous feeling that everything will be fine, even if you don’t take any action to make it so. For this reason, you may have a somewhat lazy attitude toward life–unless other aspects in your chart provide the needed motivation to put your creative ideas into action.
Since you are not inclined to work in a hectic atmosphere, you would do best in an occupation in the creative arts. You could succeed in education, writing, philosophy, law, medicine, theater or working with animals. You prefer a career which does not make excessive demands upon you. You do not seek out challenges but prefer to be left to your own creative projects.
It is generally easy for you to get along well with others. You are not overly discriminating when it comes to choosing your friends, and therefore you have associates from all walks of life. You prefer simple people and will give freely of yourself to your loved ones. For this reason, you must be cautious of those who would seek to take advantage of your generous nature.
In your love life you are direct and to the point. You seek a mate who is somewhat sophisticated, moral, and who has good taste. Crass individuals turn you off, as do those who have a negative attitude toward life. You admire common sense and an understanding nature much more than a high education or social status.
Sun sextile Mars (Strength: 1.14)
Communication is your greatest strength, and you could be successful in: writing, teaching, media, or detective work. You would reap great satisfaction from working with young people to help prepare them for the future. You would also be a competent advisor for leaders or others in positions of power. In such an occupation you could rise to a prominent position and gain widespread recognition for your efforts toward excellence.
You have an incredible amount of energy and can accomplish as much as two other people combined. You are overflowing with creative abilities and constantly seek new avenues for expressing your talents. You hold firm opinions but do not force them on others, recognizing instead their right to believe as they wish. Before reacting to any situation you closely examine all your options. If you should make an error in judgment, you don’t mind admitting so.
Because you recognize the need to keep informed on current events and developments, you are probably an avid reader. You are confident of the position you take in any discussion because you are well informed. You also like to keep at least one eye peeled for new opportunities that you may be able to take advantage of.
In your love life you have strong physical desires, but you like to know a partner very well before engaging in a sexual exchange. You are a very reliable mate, and you can inspire your lover with your enthusiasm. The best mate for you would be one who encouraged you to develop your fullest potential.
Jupiter semi-square BlackMoon (Strength: 1.03)
This aspect makes you the adventurous type. You get around and meet a lot of people. You are a citizen of the world. As an artist you could have a fertile imagination. This can put you on the leading edge of modern innovations. Some would call it the bleeding edge because, while you have fans, you also have critics who think of you as a loose cannon. However, your heart and instincts are in a good place. You think for yourself and are willing to challenge authority. You would be happiest with a mature partner who is not intimidated by your individuality. You can be an inspiration or teacher to the younger generation. In business, you could take intelligent risks in order to assimilate new elements that expand your operation.
Moon trine Mars (Strength: 0.94)
Your emotions are intense, and you may often funnel this intensity into creative projects. You have a large number of friends and enjoy good relationships with your loved ones. Because you are willing to compromise, others find you a pleasure to be around. You have mastered the art of relating to others and are able to be firm without being offensive or abrasive. On the rare occasions that you become really angry, you don’t experience feelings of hate.
You respect the rights and privacy of others and expect the same in return. Because you are reasonably self-confident, it is not easy for you to be threatened by associates or competitors. You meet challenges with acceptance and determination to get through them. Because you are highly creative, this is usually not much of a problem. Others respect your coolness in times of crisis, especially children.
Children are especially drawn to you because you allow them to be the age they are and don’t expect them to act like adults. You are warm and affectionate and don’t suffer from hangups regarding rejection and insecurity. The only people you really avoid are those who are dishonest or insincere with you. Because you are emotionally independent, you find it easy to sever ties which are not beneficial for you.
You will be a good parent, although you may be somewhat permissive. You always give others a second chance when they “fail” you and don’t expect perfection in those around you. You can see the good in everyone without concentrating only on the flaws they have.
Moon inconjunct Saturn (Strength: 0.90)
This aspect indicates that you have some basic insecurities and feel compelled to constantly prove yourself to loved ones. You can make yourself feel very guilty about the smallest error or omission on your part. In truth, no one is as hard on you as you are, although you feel that others are disappointed in you.
Your feelings of inadequacy are probably a carry over from conditioning by your parents. Perhaps they taught you that it was OK for others to take advantage of you and you somehow got the impression that you have a huge debt to pay to the world. As you mature it becomes easier to reverse this conditioning and to rebuild your self-image.
Of course, there will always be those who will try to play on your feelings of inferiority. Be suspicious of those who insist that you go to extreme lengths to prove your love. Only give what feels comfortable to you. Don’t forget that your own needs have to be met before you expend all of your energy trying to meet the needs of others.
You would do well in a career of public service–as a social worker, politician, doctor or nurse, or teacher. Once you overcome your inferiority complex, you can indeed succeed. You would reap the greatest reward from occupations which serve others. In this way you have continual evidence of your value.
Your love life can be difficult if you lay yourself down as a doormat for others to wipe their feet on. Remember that you will have little to offer those you love if you do not take care of yourself first. Be sure that your relationships are well balanced–with each partner giving and receiving equally.
Neptune inconjunct Midheaven (Strength: 0.42)
You are extremely sensitive and intuitive, and you may have natural psychic abilities. For this reason, you tend to absorb the feelings of those around you, and at times it may be difficult to tell the difference between your own feelings and those which belong to others. It is important that you surround yourself with positive, optimistic people rather than those who are negative and depressed. Because you are so impressionable, your parents and other early role models strongly influenced your life.
If your parents were supportive and nurturing, they helped you overcome your sense of insecurity by convincing you that you are a special person and worthy of the best life has to offer. By emphasizing your successes and minimizing your mistakes, they taught you to have self-confidence, even when facing difficult tasks.
If your parents were critical and demanding, but not very accepting of your imperfections, you will become your own worst critic. You will lose faith in your ability to make decisions, and to run your own life. As a result, you will have difficulty developing a strong sense of self-esteem later in life.
Pluto trine BlackMoon (Strength: 0.38)
This aspect combines a can-do attitude with a warmth of personality and bonhomie. You have discovered that you can flexibly improvise a solution to just about any challenge that you might encounter. This gives you genuine confidence. You are very creative and able to think outside the box, which enables you to quickly come up with highly effective if unorthodox solutions and techniques. It is possible that the techniques that work so effectively for you will not work for most people, so you can be kind of a phenomenon as opposed to a teacher who can pass on what he has learned. With this aspect, you will probably start developing your talents at an early age. You can be self-educated. Perhaps because of your talent you have good luck finding people who will help and pay you. Your technical ability and your willingness to display it can bring you much positive attention. In your personal life there can be a danger of over-confident rule-breaking, which can lead to legal, financial, and marital difficulties. This is especially likely once you have achieved your goals. You can then become unfocused and lackadaisical. New environments and challenges can be beneficial because they help you to rise to your full height. Whether through a sense of loyalty to your people and your field or through your own devotion to perfection, you are capable in your life of creating true beauty. With the dynamic energy of this aspect, you should have good endurance well past normal retirement age. You will probably embrace the challenges and potential of new technology. You could be on the forefront of adopting energy-efficient ways to live and co-exist on a healthy planet. You can lend your time and talents to philanthropic and environmental causes. You have the creativity and perseverance to go a long way.
Midheaven semi-square North Node (Strength: 0.33)
You are an ambitious hard-worker. You can become the leader of a team. You concentrate well, able to keep to the main point. If you do not find yourself on a leadership path, this aspect could manifest as rebellion against authority.
North Node trine Chiron (Strength: 0.15)
You certainly keep busy. You are very aware of outside pressures and expectations, but your creativity flourishes the most when you are in complete control. What you need is to have first your parents and then society recognize and allow you to implement your vision, which comes from within. You are an original thinker. You will put in the hours needed to do an excellent job when you are in charge.
Balance of Elements and Modalities
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.
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 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.
A lack of planets in Earth signs can be offset by an Earth sign ascendant or by abundant planets in the houses of Substance.
With abundant planets in these houses, relationships and communications with others are likely to be central to your life. You can help others by exchanging ideas and making connections between people. You will probably maintain active contact with a wide circle of relatives, friends and acquaintances. You keep abreast of new information via various media and your friends.
Lack of Substance
You are not the most grounded or practical person. The rules of this material world are not well known to you. Others may admire your dreams, but they could be impossible dreams. You may find it difficult to choose, plan, and work towards a career or vocation.
A lack of planets in the houses of Substance can be offset by abundant planets in Earth signs.
Balanced Sign Modalities
In your chart, the planets are distributed in a balanced manner between the Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable modalities. Ability to act and survive in the world is balanced with inner insight. You stick to your values and principles at the same time that you react quickly and adapt to changes. You have the ability to listen as well as to lead. You enjoy life, but also do not shrink from facing challenges.
An abundance of planets in the succedent houses increases your ability to enjoy life. In turn, you can give others pleasure. You are a basically stable person with strong values, feelings, and attachments. You enoy working to build the structure of your life. As you gain confidence in your self, you bind others to you with love. You have a strong physical presence.
Lack of Angular
A lack of planets in the angular houses indicates little desire or drive for recognition. You adapt to the world instead of trying to change it or make your mark upon it. You concentrate on enjoying life and find ways to help others that do not call attention to yourself.
A lack of planets in the Angular houses can be offset by abundant planets in the Cardinal signs.
