SECTION I.  The Structure and Intent of Your Life.

There are four items of general interest that we want to take up here in Section I: A) Hemisphere and Quadrant Emphasis, B) Elements and Modes, C) The Ascendant and Midheaven, and D) The Conjunctions.  These four categories give us an intelligent overview of how you structure personal experience and what you aim for in life.  This general patterning gives us a context to understand the specific personal meaning of the material in Sections 2 through 11.

     A.  Hemisphere and Quadrant Emphasis

The different areas of life are laid out in the horoscope by spatial territories called houses.  These areas of life show interests and general involvements for each person.  These areas can be grouped together for a vast overview of most basic inclinations of the person. The most useful general groupings of houses is into hemispheres and quadrants.  Emphasis in a hemisphere or quadrant shows a particularly strong focus toward life from that perspective.

          1. Hemisphere

The horoscope can be split into 2 equal parts, either horizontally (giving us the upper and lower hemispheres) or vertically (giving  us the right and left hemispheres).  The Upper Hemisphere shows the outer, more extroverted side of the personality, the Lower Hemisphere shows the more introverted and hidden side of the personality.  In the Left Hemisphere planets are rising and this shows action.  In the Right Hemisphere planets are setting and this shows reaction.

Most Planets Above the Horizon

You have the majority of your planets above the horizon showing that you have a need for contact with the outer world in order to feel fulfilled each day.  You enjoy projects, achieving and a sense of accomplishment.  Success for its own sake is more important than what security it might present to you.

Most Planets Setting

You have the majority of your planets on the western half (or right-hand side) of your chart.  Your natural tendency is to seek others' approval and to question the probable outcome of an action before putting your first efforts forward.

          2. Quadrant

The two ways of splitting the horoscope into hemispheres can be applied simultaneously giving us four quadrants.  The FIRST is called the quadrant of personality.  The SECOND is called the quadrant of the environment.  The THIRD is called the quadrant of relationship.  The FOURTH is called the quadrant of service.

No Quadrant Emphasis

You tend to diversify your energy and attention to several different areas of life.  You may have difficulties in achieving your goals in life until you order your priorities.  You can be a master at balancing many different aspects of life when you learn to use your time wisely. Avoid letting your mind dwell on projects you are not immediately engaged in.  Keep your attention in the here and now and your life becomes much simpler.

     B.  Elements and Modes

The Elements and Modes show what we aim for in life.  They show our broadest focus and in the most general sense, how we go about achieving our goals.

          1. Elements

The four elements (fire, earth, air and water) are the most comprehensive inventory of the personality that we have. Everything in the universe including the human personality can be examined in terms of the four elements.  FIRE is your basic enthusiastic urge,  EARTH shows your concern for the material world,  AIR is the element of abstract thought,  WATER is your empathy impulse.  Fire and earth are primitive and focus on the self.  Air and water are derivative and focused on others.  Fire and air are naturally extrovert, optimistic, active, and freedom oriented.  Earth and water are basically introvert, pessimistic, passive, and security oriented.


You have 30% of your chart in the fire element.  This fire supplies you with great energy for your own personal projects. Still, you suffer if the projects that you select are too big. You need quick victories to keep from losing heart, and to keep believing in yourself.  The magic ingredient is believing in yourself.  When you forget this, your life produces much frustration; you end up driven by duty more than desire. The trick to working with your fire element is to design the placement of your energy so that you get sufficient positive reinforcement, enabling you to keep reinvesting in your own projects.


You have 30% of your chart in the earth element.  This shows you know how to be practical.  It is important that you stay balanced in your approach to the material world.  You are prone to obsess on details and practical considerations and then periodically ignore them.  You do much better to develop a mode of operation for being in the world and then to adhere to this way of being, regardless of your particular feelings in the moment.


You have just 20% of your chart in the air element.  You have a magic blend in the air element.  You have an ever-active intellect.  Your eye is always looking, your mind is always attempting to grasp more and more information.  You don't feel confident in what you know.  This lack of confidence prompts you to keep on task with the learning process.  You never relax on the subject of gathering new information. In the long run, you become quite scholarly in life, out-performing most others in the mental realm.


You have 20% of your chart in the water element.  You work hard during this life to develop your emotions.   You have lots of opportunity to work on your feelings.  Your sense of emotional inadequacy drives you to express your feelings more.  The outward appearance of caring substitutes for real concern while you are young; true empathy develops later in life.

          2. Modes

The three modes are CARDINAL, FIXED, and MUTABLE.  The modes of expression show how you act out your urges in the world.  They represent your most basic responding mechanism toward all of life experience.  The cardinal planets show direct expression in physical action, leadership ability and strength.  The fixed mode planets in your chart show reaction, consistency, persistency, endurance and stubbornness.  The mutable planets in your chart show synthesis, blending, malleableness, thought, forethought, debate and wisdom.  The following statements show the way the three modes manifest in your life.


You have 20% of your chart in the cardinal mode showing that you are capable of both leading and following.  You know how to assert your point of view or execute someone else's.  Your preference is to follow someone else's lead and embark on your own path only when you feel it is necessary.


A tremendous amount of your chart is in the fixed mode.  You have endurance.  Whether a course of action is good or bad you are more likely to stay with it than change.   The principle of inertia is with you.  When you rest, you have real difficulty getting going.  When you are in motion,  you have real difficulty stopping or even changing directions (even  slightly).  People find you a loyal friend and a tenacious enemy.


You have 30% of your chart in the mutable mode.  Adjustment to new circumstances is relatively easy for you.  Part of your nature is very stimulated by change.  You like to think about your experiences so as to accommodate any new information that occurs.  This is not your only way of being but your favorite mode of operation can be reactive. Exposure to new ideas and methods can help you be calmer while still helping you maintain interest in life.

     C.  The Ascendant and Midheaven (Signs and Aspects)

          1.  The Ascendant

The ascendant is symbolic of our relationship to our immediate environment.  This is the point rising in the east when we are born. One manifestation of our immediate environment is our physical body. The physical environment includes our body, our surroundings and our emotional and mental states.  Thus, the ascendant tells us how our inner core expresses itself, and how we take in information from others and the universe generally. The sign rising in your horoscope tells us the type of energy you are processing, the type of physical body that you have for doing the processing and the natural inclinations you have in the personal arena in life.  The planets in aspect to your ascendant tell us the kind of energy and stamina you have as natural allies in life.  The ascendant is opposite the seventh house cusp (the place where we meet others and the world).  This axis (ascendant-descendant) is how we clarify ourselves through relationships. Planets in aspect to this axis indicate the types of people and the types of relationships we seek as well as how and why we seek them.

                             AQUARIUS RISING

You have a striking and unusual personality and appearance.  You express a human and humanistic quality that others admire.  You have a charm  and magnetism that affects others in a positive way.  You seek opportunities to interact with others in a wholesome and elevating way. You are so interested in people, ideas and projects that others seldom recognize how glued in you are to a preselected agenda.  Because you are interested in everything and have wide humanitarian qualities and concerns, people often underestimate your tenacity. Actually you are incredibly vigilant and loyal.  Once you have selected a person or project in life, you can persevere regardless of the cost. You have a knack for doing the unexpected.  You are so creative and original others never really know what to expect.  Others are often attracted to your beauty.

Sun Opposition the Ascendant and in the 6th house and afflicted.

Relationships are very important to you.  But you feel that you have to earn other people's approval through what you contribute to their lives.  Frankly, you are not very good at second guessing other people's needs and addressing them in a way that is competent and appropriate. When you project yourself into other people's shoes, you tend to miss the uniqueness of their situation.  Avoid the tendency to micromanage the practical considerations of life and you will see improvement in a broad range of experience including: your job, your feelings, communications with people in general, and relationships.

Venus Sesquiquadrate the Ascendant

You long for and express unique artistic and cultural taste. This gives your personality its special color but is also responsible for many of your difficulties.  You find it difficult to achieve stability in relationships while remaining honest in your self expression.  You find personal life much easier and more fun if you are very tolerant in matters of taste.  You attract and grow by association with people who have vastly different styles and judgments than your own.  Many lessons in life are learned from these people.  Art and beauty are important to you; consequently, your surroundings will always reflect your aesthetic choices.  Your opportunities to grow are always present as you have a knack for seeing a higher synthesis any time a disagreement emerges.

Mars Quincunx the Ascendant

Every time you express a desire you have the potential of being misunderstood.  Great clarity of purpose and attention as to how and when you put your ideas into action is required of you in this life. Avoid just letting the exuberance in you burst forth. You can become devitalized when you are not clear as to what you really want. Think, evaluate, then express.

Uranus Opposition the Ascendant and in the 7th House and unafflicted.

You look for excitement and freedom in others.  Because you like change, commitment is difficult for you.  However this is possible when you have a great deal of variety and openness built into the foundation of the relationship.  When you have a committed relationship you are inevitably involved with a unique and creative individual that likes your desire for variety.  You are happiest when you are enjoying people for themselves, enjoying the creative spirit.

          2.  The Midheaven

The Midheaven is the high point in your chart.  It indicates what you aspire for, what you see as your duty, and what authority and limits are about.  Because of this basic meaning the Midheaven indicates how you live out your social station and what you do for your career.  The point opposite the Midheaven is the fourth house cusp, referred to as the nadir, which is the indication of our roots, our heritage. This axis (Midheaven-Nadir) indicates the way we grow in life.  The sign on the Midheaven shows our basic energy and approach toward dealing with the world.  Planets in aspect to the Midheaven show qualities of our inner being that we wish to contribute to the world and that we wish to be fulfilled through our interaction with the outer world.

                            SCORPIO MIDHEAVEN

You are fixed in your approach to handling your duties.  In order to accomplish any task, your taste runs toward extreme methods. You are "all or nothing" in your general mode of operation.  You may have periods of evaluating your commitments, but once a choice is made, you are loyal to people, causes, and your own perceptions.  Your success comes through your intensity of focus.

Moon Applying Opposition to Midheaven and unafflicted.

You grow through changes that are instinctive and out of your immediate control.  Your family of origin affected your emotional development profoundly.  You will have a period of life where you go through many changes of residence.  You are known by the general public at some point.

Mercury Trine Midheaven

You have a knack for making changes in life-style and career to accommodate changes in the world.  Your language skills are an important asset in the performance of your job or social position.

Venus Quincunx the Midheaven

The creation of beauty and the expression of your desire for love is so important to you that you easily overshoot the mark several times in your youth trying to obtain the unobtainable.  Through the acceptance of the modality of expressions common to our culture, you grow and learn about yourself.  Your alignment with the society and the ensuing maturation becomes your mechanism for creating something of enduring quality for the culture.  This contribution of yours will have your own personal "hallmark" on it.

Jupiter Sextile Midheaven

You are lucky, optimistic, and confident.  You have a good sense of timing in career situations and are good at organizing work and motivating others.  People tend to like your positive spirit.

Saturn Sextile Midheaven

You have disciplined and organized planning skills.  People trust you and you have a knack for finding the shortest methods for accomplishing complicated tasks.  You are consistent and reliable and usually do what you say you will do.

Uranus Square Midheaven

Working for someone else is almost unbearable.  You much prefer the freedom to design your own hours and work methods.  You have real difficulty getting along with others in positions of authority. Remember, although you know exactly what you are doing at times, your methods and actions look arbitrary and chaotic to others unless you take the time to explain yourself.  This is always to your advantage as others are important to you.

     D. The Conjunctions.

A Conjunction occurs when two planets are in the same immediate area of the Zodiac.  The conjunctions in your chart show central linkings of basic energies in your life.  When one area (represented by a planet) expresses itself, it brings along the other area (represented by the other planet).  When you are studying the rest of this printout of your life, keep in mind that linking of these energies is a central theme in your life and these areas should be studied together.

Jupiter Conjunct Saturn

Think of Sections VII. JUPITER - Your values, and VIII. SATURN -Your obligations, as a single operating principal.  This Conjunction shows your drive for social involvement and represents a consistent and special focus in your life.

SECTION II.  The SUN - Your Ego Structure

The Sun is the center of the solar system.  All life revolves around it within this sphere.  In the same way, the ego is the center of personal identity and gives integration and continuity to individual experience. In this sense, it might be said that the Sun shows character.  This is the fixed pillar at the center of the person around which all else circulates or revolves.

The sign placement of the Sun shows the center of the individual's basic character.  The sign of the Sun is the most primary indicator of the forms of experience you are attracted to.  Further, this most important placement shows how and why you are attracted to these experiences.

The house placement of the Sun sign shows the primary area of expression for the individual in life.  There is a psychological, emotional, and physical significance to the house placement of the Sun. Aspects to the Sun show ways that the core of the personality are linked to other component elements in the individual's life.  Aspects to the Sun have a deep and overriding significance in the life of the individual and are generally more important, more prominent than other aspects in the chart.


You clearly see yourself as the center of your own life.  You radiate a natural joy and goodness to life.  You have a strong inner dignity and sense of self-respect.  You must have some self-expression in life and you will look at any activity as a chance to create.  Although you are somewhat theatrical and flamboyant, you inspire others who often get some vicarious enjoyment through watching you.  Pay more attention to detail and show more concern for other people's needs and your life automatically becomes more fulfilling.

Sun in 6th house

You have a tendency to immerse yourself in detail.  You are interested in making sure that you "get it right" when you set out to do something.  The positive side of this is that you are well adapted to getting along with the world on its own terms. You know how to adjust to others and to circumstances which are beyond your control.

Sun in 6th house Afflicted

A feeling that life is bigger than you and that others are more important than you can artificially limit your perspective. Health issues can plague you as personal frustrations and annoyances irrupt physically.  You may develop a habit of expressing you personal identity by nervously moving to and fro within very narrow parameters. Create more options for yourself, health and work will improve. Learning that all barriers are self-created is a lifetime task.


You have a deeply secretive side to your nature.  You are romantic, humanitarian and idealistic.  You suffer from an excess of emotion and exaggerated sensitivity to anything that goes wrong in life. Unfortunately, something going wrong can mean merely that it didn't live up to your expectations which can be quite inflated.  Your life becomes a dynamic, unstoppable force for good once you accomplish two things: one, you must become self disciplined (i.e. ascetic) enough that you overcome self-indulgence in every form, and two, you must know life by knowing, really knowing, yourself.


Idealistic and hypnotic, you dissolve the world around you.  Your sense of self and the world is without boundaries.  Definition is difficult for you because of this.  You can lighten up and inspire others, but, lead them down the "primrose Path" until you know where you are going. Once your own direction is clarified (no easy task) you can help others.  You are compassionate but have confusion as to an appropriate manner of expression.  Until you gain self-definition helping others is always fraught with danger .

SECTION III.  The MOON - Your Personal Life.

The Moon inscribes a circle around the earth.  It moves more swiftly than other astronomical bodies and thus represents day to day and moment to moment movements, adjustments and preoccupations.  The Moon is the symbol of the personal life which is molded and shaped by our environment, by events, and by social and familial expectations. Further, the Moon shows our responses to life which are based on our past habits, experiences, our heritage and our individual and collective cravings.

The sign placement of the Moon shows how you project yourself to the general public, how the instinctive and imaginative component of your mind operates, how you express your feelings and your most general experiences of your family and mother.

The house placement of the Moon shows how and where you make day to day adjustments.  Further, it shows the things you are most interested in dealing with in order to gain emotional equilibrium.

The aspects of the Moon show the general characteristics of the personality that are emphasized.  Planets in aspect to the Moon are symbolic of qualities in the personality that are used instinctively, habitually and with a high degree of versatility.


You have a "way with words".  You have the ability to imitate and communicate almost anything that you have exposure to.  You seek out the new and you are always alert to anything that might further your cause.  You have keen powers of observation.  You may lack warmth and although you genuinely like people and seek them out, often your overactive nervous system stops you from relaxing into real intimacy. Avoid letting words substitute for feelings and try to develop depth and commitment.  Meditation, exercise and visualization all help you establish more continuity of experience in life.

Moon in 4th house

When you are at home you have the desire to shut out the rest of the world.  You strive to create a sense of security in the home and family early in life.  You will return to this instinctive orientation to life any time your situation becomes too splintered or too abstract.

Moon in 4th house Unafflicted

Several times in life you find yourself moving based on some instinctive impression.  You have the uncanny ability to be at the right place at the right time.  Safety for you is a strong motivator. You envision this coming about by returning to how things used to be as you have a strong, instinctive attachment to your childhood.  This can be a great asset as you go through the many changes that are required of you in life.


You are intelligent with a good grasp of meanings and a good memory. You adjust easily to changing circumstances, draw quick generalizations and can communicate your findings to the public. You learn new things easily.  You are able to expand and build on what you learn because you have a good imagination.


You have good creative self-expression.  You like getting your ideas across to others.  You have a way with words and positive and useful insights.  Health and hygiene are important to you. You are well organized and have good business sense as well as the ability to make time for your domestic life.  You are tactful, knowing what to say, when to say it, and to whom. Having good writing skills, you are able to articulate your own feelings, as well as those of others'.


You are religious, dignified with a sense of justice which gives you a public image of being honorable and trustworthy.  You are well liked and successful.  You have a strong moral sense and are willing to take a stand on your beliefs.  The good comes to you in life.


Faith in life and basic, conservative instincts gives you position and prominence in your social circle.  Others support you publicly and you are an inspiration to them.  The public generally holds certain values as obvious truths.  You subtly and instinctively reinforce the values and basic beliefs that power the decisions in most people's lives. Thus, you create a feeling in others that you are "one of us".  You make the right choices. Your character seems trustworthy to others and you seldom disappoint them.


You easily get so emotionally "locked up" that it becomes difficult to alter or arrest a pattern once it has begun.  You can suffer a lot by cutting yourself off from others.  You may end a relationship that you desperately want if you feel the other person may reject you or abandon you sometime in the future.  You demand a loyalty from others that isn't only unrealistic, but is also something you are incapable of or unwilling to give to others yourself.  Further, you are capable of forming compulsive attachments where you hang onto a relationship long after the other person has left you emotionally or even physically.  In either of these cases, clearly you have to come to terms with the issue of power and control.  Don't be afraid of not being in control. Achieve self-control, understand your own emotions and your life becomes much easier.  You might explore your relationship with your mother as it had a much deeper effect on you than for most people.  You have ability to work with large figures and with money and finance. You are able to conceptualize many different items of experience simultaneously.  If your emotions don't get in your way, you become a leader in some realm.


Feelings of judgment and disagreement with others can leave you feeling paranoid.  Emotional limitations and self-judgments stop you from being open with others.  Realize that excessive secrecy stops you from getting correct (or enough) information from your environment. Self-defeating habits hold you back until you are able to get beyond unconscious fears.

SECTION IV.  MERCURY - Your Mental Life.

Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun.  From the viewpoint of the earth it seems to dart back and forth across the face of the Sun, having three retrograde cycles a year.  Mercury is the planet of your mental life.  It shows how you receive, process and disseminate information. The sign placement of Mercury shows your basic attitude and mental habits.  The aspects of Mercury show your scope of vision and your methods for accomplishing tasks.


Your mind is authoritative, self-sufficient, dramatic and comprehensive.  You don't just passively collect knowledge, you create knowledge when you study.  You relate everything back to you.  When you speak, you don't just say something, you state it. A certain dignity is always hanging in the air.  Although you follow a chain of thought, you have a tendency to build to a climax in very broad terms.  You improve your standing in your world when you learn respect for other people's point of view and increase your own grasp of detail.  When you need to adjust and adapt to life's demands, generally you don't.  You carry the standard off the battle field rather than surrender or even adjust.  When you are too inflexible, you are prone to being either humiliated or ridiculed.

Mercury in 6th house

You generally want to keep checking your facts.  You recognize the value of understanding how things operate.  Thus, you may strive to increase your technical and practical knowledge.  You may have some special interest in pets.

Mercury in 6th house Unafflicted

You have good manual dexterity and instinctual sense for what will work and what will not.  Good work habits and a positive belief in your ability give you a competitive edge on the job.


This indicates that you have a very personal, feeling mind. You have a very close personal use for your mental life. The details of this connection were discussed in Section III.  The Moon -Your personal life.


Literary skill and a refined outlook on life give you a likeable and colorful manner of expression.  You are acutely aware of the way you affect others.  This awareness can make you more sensitive to your own values as well as giving you some perspective of personal differences with others.  You have talent for creating harmony.


You have some conflict between what you see as facts and what you hold as values.  You can see what you believe to be the good in life, but have difficulty getting to it. You sometimes engage in escapist fantasies or compensatory activity that actually carries you further away from your goal.  You are prone to having a division between your inner and outer life that is self defeating.  Your life greatly improves when you demand that you live out consciously any value that you hold as true.  Strive for accuracy and avoid exaggeration when giving descriptions to others.


You have an adventuresome mind but can be the master of "jumping to the wrong conclusion".  Patience and discipline serve you well and guard you against ending up being responsible for something you have no control over.  You suffer from unrealistic expectations of other people.  You are taken advantage of primarily because of your own wishful thinking.  Deal more with what people do and less on what they promise, and life is easier.


At a core level you don't think well enough about yourself. It may appear that you do on the surface, but the truth of the matter is your pessimism and complaining comes from a fear that life will not give you what you want.  Learn to work smarter and not just harder.  You see the virtue in discipline and often force yourself to do things you feel are good for you.  In turn, you may resent others that don't work as hard.  It is more difficult for you to get where you are going because you are always having to compromise between what you would like to do and what you feel is required.  This conflict between desires and feelings of obligation is often the source of worry, stress, and wasted energy.  For all this, you excel in any area that requires close, careful judgment.


Your feelings of defensiveness come from a perception that others don't hear you and don't understand you.  Being disciplined, orderly, and patient brings consistent stable progress on any project; but, you need to overcome the feeling that the world is your enemy.


You see more than you can do.  It's as if you are being led through life responding to a voice that no one else around you can hear.  People may like you a lot and yet think you are quite naive.  You believe in things that others think of as make believe.  This is part of your charm, for part of you has always remained a child.  You need to make sure that you know how to communicate to others based on their perceptions and beliefs, otherwise you have great difficulty belonging to a larger world than the one of your own creation.


Your imagination is in service to your feelings of limitation and you find yourself as an escapist.  You are very sensitive to your environment and little irritations get blown out of proportion in your mind, just as your mind can belittle a really important issue.  This same problem can cause emotional difficulties as there is confusion with others.  Learn to test your conclusions in the world that others live in and you safeguard yourself from making some unfortunate errors. You need a creative outlet for your mind; otherwise, fantasy takes the place of reason at really inconvenient times.

SECTION V.  VENUS - Your Love Nature.

The planet Venus shows the way you express your love nature and what you aspire for in life as good or beautiful. Venus has much to do with how you form your values.  The sign placement of Venus shows the type of love energy you have.  The house placement of Venus shows the natural area of expression of the love energy. The aspects of Venus indicate how and under what circumstances you express the gentle and loving side of your nature.


You love home, the past, food, and warm romantic notions. You are nurturing and affectionate.  You are a truly gentle lover.  Your affections are very sentimental and devoted. You can bend over backwards to make someone else feel good. When you run into trouble in life the origin can be that you have a maudlin dwelling on the past that stops you from experiencing spontaneous joy in the present moment.  You find inner peace through regular patterns in your everyday life.  Your imagination mingles with your memory to create harmony and comfort in your home and family.

Venus in 5th house

You know how to enjoy life; you have a strong sense of the dramatic and love creative work.  You have an interest in love and romance at an early age.

Venus in 5th house Unafflicted

The creative side of your personality shines with a certain brilliance. You can't help but attract attention from others. You like a good time more than most and have a strong presence in any group.  Your love of the arts has given you a natural knowing of how to display your attributes to your best advantage.


Musical and artistic talent are part of your nature and personality.  This same artistic eye and ear on life can give you a trusting and gentle disposition.  You believe in people and are deeply hurt when they don't live up to your lofty expectations. You admire and are attracted to the dramatic in relationships because of their ability to promote a value.  You want the world to be better than it is so you do what you can to reinforce that which you see as good.


Your love and creativity emerge naturally in the course of living as you are beautiful, artistic, and appealing to be with.  You have the ability to bring out the good in a situation.   Your sense of color and light are profound and your skills and talents emerge with an aesthetic wish in any field.


You are powerful and magnetic.  You have a magic charm for dealing with people.  You have a universal love for people that is non-sectarian and non-judgmental.  You are sustained by material abundance that comes from others at some time in this life and may have a sizable inheritance. When you get involved with a project you can really pour yourself into it with seemingly limitless energy.  This energy evaporates when you aren't involved in a project of personal importance.


You have a way of making your compulsive love nature an art form. You change people through your work with them.  Your deepest personal changes benefit others around you.

SECTION VI.  MARS - Your Energy.

Mars is the planet of desires.  It shows how you aim at your goals and how you power yourself toward your goals.  Mars represents your most fundamental wants.  The sign placement of Mars shows the fundamental nature of your assertions.  The house placement of Mars shows the area of your life you are most likely to focus on.  The aspects to Mars show how and to what extent your desires and assertions are involved with other aspects of living.


Your desire for technical perfection can mean that you end up suppressing your wants.  You do have skills but often lack the drive to do much with them.  You need to build self-confidence. You work well in any area that allows you to serve others or that lets you create order.  When it comes to careful, detailed work, you are either a pro or you get completely entangled in the minutiae and the situation decays around you.  You take comfort in carefully defined details in any situation. Consequently, any time you feel threatened you retreat into details that make you feel safe.  The trade-off? Certainty costs you vision; you loose sight of the larger picture. You learn to see "the forest for the trees" when you become more courageous.

Mars in 8th house

You can be very devotional.  You have a strong interest in sex and close emotional sharing.  Self-transcendence and self-transformation are important to you.

Mars in 8th house Unafflicted

Your powerful emotions and intuitions can keep you on target with your major projects.  You know the secret of increasing your own position by advocating important community and social values.


You know how to get to your goals in life by steady, patient, and persistent progress.  You have good, practical overviews of the final result of your efforts.  You are good at planning a strategy and sticking to it.  You build your projects and your life with bedrock security in mind, with as little risk as possible.  Discipline, patience, hard work, and the blessing of good judgment work together to form a picture that looks like "luck" to others.


You are an excellent judge of your limits and create much goodness for yourself by appreciation for what is appropriate socially and for what is permanent in life.  You express yourself in a way that helps your long term projects manifest.


When you speak, others listen.  You stir people to rethink basic assumptions.  You need to be careful that high ideals do not become an excuse for inaction, or that theory doesn't take the place of practice.  There is a spiritual quality to your thoughts that can point to fanatic rambling and an impractical attitude toward the responsibilities of life.  Avoid drugs, alcohol and anything that can be devitalizing.  You need to constantly re-check your direction so as to ensure absolute integrity of purpose.  You are prone to expound a belligerent philosophy while harboring escapist fantasies.


Your ideals are slightly out of step with the reality of your life situation.  You have a flair for colorful expression any time you act. You often end up  "backing a losing horse" until you become honest with yourself about what you really want. Personal growth requires replacing your imagination with constructive thoughts.


Jupiter is the king of the planets.  He is in charge of the order of creation.  Jupiter shows your values, where you feel confident and in control, and where you feel you have something to teach others.  The sign placement of Jupiter shows your values in life. The house placement of Jupiter shows the area of life you feel luckiest in and the area you receive the most help from other people and from the cosmos.  The aspect patterns to Jupiter show the direct network of good and administrative power in your life.


You value personal freedom and are motivated to overcome all obstacles in order to experience a higher vision of truth.  You like anything that gives you creative expanse, and are naturally attracted to explore new ideas and experiment with the results in new ways.  You have a need to show some originality in your work, and look for opportunity that stimulates you mentally.  You have a good imagination and are fond of using it.  This is not just a personal crusade as your picture of the world includes bettering other peoples' lot.  You are both tolerant and humanitarian. You can become too theoretical; at times, you daydream about ideals rather than living them.  However, your humanitarian instincts ground your ideas, demanding to see some sort of application for your values.  Although you are not particularly interested in money, you may be in charge of other peoples' resources as an outgrowth of your higher vision of a better world through the application of scientific, socially futuristic, and humanitarian values.

Jupiter in 12th house

You have luck.  It may not arrive until the last possible second, but you do have it.  Time spent by yourself is always rewarding. You benefit through meditation, visualization, and quiet study.

Jupiter in 12th house Unafflicted

Your secret life is a deep source of strength and inspiration. You like organization and it is through your affinity for collective efforts that you find expression of your highest ideals.  Others take what you say to them quite seriously.  Never violate a confidence and you will help many people in your life.


You have an aspect from Jupiter to the Moon showing an interest in expressing values through your daily life.  What you believe has more impact on what you do than it does for most other people.  The information on this topic in Section III.  (The Moon - Your Personal Life) may be helpful in grasping how you do this.


You have Jupiter in aspect to Mercury indicating a deep commitment to communicate something of value.  You will have a commitment to knowing the truth and conveying it to others.  You will find some further information on this topic in Section IV. Mercury - You Mental Life.


You have a conservative streak in you that is seeking the lowest common denominator.  You get to your goal in life and accomplish much by slow, tenacious effort.  Your life really takes off between the ages of 27 and 36.  It is during this time that you "find yourself". Your success is directly linked to the success of the culture.  You rise and fall with the fortunes of everyone else.  Seeing this principle in operation, perhaps you can pace yourself so that you don't waste time and energy trying to push your own life forward faster than the country or the social order can assimilate it.


You feel lucky and that gets you into trouble.  You get overextended and into financial hot water before you know what has happened.  Being gullible and naive, you suffer through believing in your own fantasies.  Because you are kind and sympathetic, you go out of your way to help others.  But here you can suffer through poor judgment as to what will be of real and lasting help.  The way out of this confusion is not to be less idealistic or less sympathetic, but instead to be more long-term in your vision.  Ask yourself what will be important 10 years from now in your immediate considerations. Taking the long view of yourself and of life is an acid test for moment to moment decisions.


Your values and beliefs are in conflict with your vision of truth.  You get confused as to what your direction should be. Your biggest problem can be having unrealistic expectations.  You may be lazy and think that the good things you dream about will just come to you with no effort. Your faith in life, as misdirected as it is at times, will certainly sustain you, and it certain does aid you in attracting the good things that the world and other people have to offer.

SECTION VIII.  SATURN - Your Obligations.

The planet Saturn shows where you feel restricted.  You feel obligations and fears through Saturn.  Because of your feeling connected with Saturn you are either responsible or neglectful. The sign placement of Saturn shows the basic type of energy connected with your obligations.  The house placement of Saturn shows an area of life that you feel restricted in and work hard to obtain the things that come to you.  The aspects of Saturn show the most direct involvement of other areas of your life with your feelings of responsibility.


You are afraid of not getting what you have coming.  You are ambitious but have a sense of personal integrity.  You are always striving for self control and try to channel your energy most productively.  You are willing to start at the bottom and work your way up.  You keep striving and eventually get the recognition that you long for.  As you get older you value inner control more than outer worldly success.

Saturn in 12th house

You are deep inside of yourself.  You are reserved and prone to periods of seclusion.  You need to be left alone when you are working as you are so sensitive to everything and everyone around you.

Saturn in 12th house Unafflicted

You have a long history of being able to devote your attention to important issues of social change.  Sometimes you are too quick to take on struggles for others.  You have a real capacity for selfless service.


You have Saturn in aspect to Mercury showing that you have a serious approach to life and a more reserved outlook.  This is discussed in Section IV.  Mercury - Your Mental Life.


You have Saturn in aspect to Mars showing a desire to build strong foundations in your life.  This aspect of your nature is taken up in Section VI.  Mars - Your Energy.


You have Saturn in aspect to Jupiter showing that you have an interest in procedures and legal structures.  This interest is discussed in Section VII.  Jupiter - Your Values.


You have some deep fears that color your perceptions of what is possible in life.  Your negative attitudes toward yourself and life create real problems for you getting to your goals.  You may attract anger or violence from others as a by-product of your fears, or express your own, as frustration and blocks bubble over.  You have a tendency to "block out" anything that you fear and can't control. Courage and persistency of effort eventually bring an easier pattern in life.


You may feel victimized by circumstances.  It is easy to feel frustrated when you realize that everything you try to do requires more energy than you thought it would.  Tremendous energy is required for success in life but it is achievable.  It is possible to create great things in life, but for you it always requires deep self-transformation.

SECTION IX.  URANUS - Your Search For Freedom.

The planet Uranus is beyond the orbit of Saturn and can't be seen without the aid of a telescope.  It represents the sky in us, that which transcends the limits of finite life.  Uranus raises the vibration of everything it contacts.  The sign placement of Uranus shows your broadest striving for freedom.  The house placement of Uranus indicates your area of direct unique expression.  The aspects to Uranus indicate the way you express your need for higher consciousness.


You have an urge to express your creativity.  You throw yourself totally into what you do.  There is a sense of self importance that you could always buy into, but you are really looking for some higher identity.

Uranus in 7th house

You like unique and unusual people.  Engaging with others brings out a healthy competition and helps in the production of new ideas.  You have a romantic streak and you get involved with unusual people quite suddenly.

Uranus in 7th house Unafflicted

You make an exciting partner.  You take and give a tremendous amount of freedom.  You help others develop a spirit of independence.  You attract a variety of interesting people into your life.  People will often share a part of themselves with you that stays hidden much of the time.

SECTION X.  NEPTUNE - Your Spiritual Aspirations and Ideals.

The planet Neptune has an almost perfectly circular orbit.  It represents the part of our nature that strives for perfection, that looks to some higher ideal.  The planet Neptune rules the ocean and the part of us that is beyond the limits of the shores of personal existence.  The culture moves with the cycles of Neptune and it is the primary indicator of your connection to the culture that you live in. The sign of Neptune shows an ideal that you desire to manifest.  The house placement of Neptune shows the area of your life that you want to express this ideal in.  The aspect patterns of Neptune indicate the most direct connections yet most subtle networking of your personality into the world at large.


You have powerful and unconscious impulses for sensation.  You wish most of all to keep a social ideal alive through emotional intensity. You struggle to work out your secret desires.

Neptune in 9th house

You are idealistic in your outlook and are always up for long journeys or long-term planning.  You are very intuitive and open to mystical and mythical interpretations of life.

Neptune in 9th house Unafflicted

Your ideals are so lofty that others might see you are always missing a distant target.  The truth is, though, that you steadily approach your far away goal, and your values have their impact even though it may not be immediately obvious even to you.


You have an aspect of Neptune to the Sun showing that you have a gentleness and lofty vision of life.  How this works out is shown by Section II.  The Sun - Your Ego Structure.


You have an aspect of Neptune to your Mercury showing a deep vision of the truth and some psychic awareness.  This perception of yours is discussed in some detail in Section IV.  Mercury -Your Mental Life.


You have Neptune in aspect to Venus.  This indicates that you are very artistic by inclination and idealistic in love.  This pattern is described in Section V.  Venus - Your Love Nature.


You have Neptune in aspect with your Mars.  This shows that you are idealistic and have a magnetic personality.  How this works out in your life is described in Section VI.  Mars - Your Energy.


You have an aspect of Neptune to Jupiter.  This indicates that you have a lofty vision of the possible in life and that you attract good things by this expectation.  How this works out for you is shown by Section VII.  Jupiter - Your Obligations.


You are fundamentally an idealist.  You would like to see change come about in a way that doesn't destroy the existing social order.  You believe in transition and transformation as saner and kinder principles of social change than revolutionary upheaval.


Your higher ideals are the continuous recipient of forceful energy for change.  Your long range perspective (even though this may at times be unconscious) is always toward your ideals winning out through deep self transformation.

SECTION XI.  PLUTO - Your Need For Fundamental Change.

The planet Pluto represents the dark underground part of you.  It shows your ability to transform the most fundamental properties in your own inner nature.  The sign of Pluto is the way the obsessive, compulsive and committed part of your nature expresses itself.  The house placement of Pluto shows the area of life where you make your most fundamental and most potent changes. The aspects to Pluto show the deepest most unconscious links in your personality structure.


At best, you have critical powers to discriminate between that which works and that which doesn't.  There is a striving for perfection at the core of your being that can narrow your horizons so far that you focus too much on basic issues connected with your own life.  At worst, you are so critical that you slow down everyone's effectiveness.  Patience and hard work are required in order to complete your personal transformations.

Pluto in 7th house

You have very high standards and unusual taste in people, partnerships and relationships.  You want deep changes and self-transformation through relationships.  For all this, you are often embarrassed by what others do in relation to you.  You sometimes get locked into relationships that are uncomfortable and don't see a way out.  At times you feel locked out of a relationship that you want.  You have a taste for the extremes.

Pluto in 7th house Unafflicted

You will have a few extremely unusual relationships.  These special relationships will be a cauldron, allowing you a mirror through which you can isolate and rectify qualities of your personality that you don't care for anymore.


You have an aspect of Pluto to the Moon.  You have a deep connection to your mother.  The nurturing side of your personality is being transformed during this life.  The details of this are indicated in Section III.  The Moon - Your Personal Life.


You have an aspect of Pluto to Venus showing that you have a very deeply entrenched love nature that you are transforming.  The details of this are discussed in Section V.  Venus - Your Love Nature.


You have an aspect of Pluto to Saturn.  This shows that you are very impressed with things in the past.  The working out of this impression is taken up in Section VIII.  Saturn - Your Obligations.


You have an aspect of Pluto to Neptune which shows your involvement in a large cultural process.  This involvement is described in Section X. Neptune - Your Spiritual Aspirations and Ideals.



Part of your style of being a person is tied to your personal method of adapting to and interacting with other people.  This aspect of your personality shows itself through every aspect of how you deal with the environment.  This method of your being encourages as well as reveals your uniqueness.


You are very resourceful.  You always find a deep inner strength with which to take some steps forward.  When the going is difficult, you are still able to build some type of victory or personal reward on anything that happens in your life.  You have a passive ability to endure and wait.  You have an active talent for planning.  Your keyword is Reorganization.


The following material is an index of things that you have developed as inner resources.  You may take them for granted, but in times of reevaluation and rest this part of your personality can provide you comfort and strength.

Well-Aspected Venus.

You have natural instincts for how to deal with people. Diplomacy is your way of moving forward in life.  Focusing on the important issues between you and your loved ones usually makes meaningful compromises possible.  When you concentrate on your first priorities and assert the gentler side of your nature, your life improves.

Sun in Leo.

The strength and surety of your ego structure is a tremendous personal asset.  Your ability to naturally and immediately focus all your attention on your own self is a help in everything you do.

Moon in the Fourth House.

You have a good family life.  Your ability to focus your attention on your personal life gives you continuity in your daily habits.  Family, your past, and heritage means more to you as you get older.

Mercury in the Sixth House.

You like learning and are instinctively drawn toward the critical details of any project.  This attribute gives you the right inclination towards your environment.  You apply yourself to the most necessary items and take care of them.  Your day-to-day focus keeps you in motion so that you have a sense of achievement and progress.

Mars in the Eighth House.

You have a natural attraction to life's mysteries and you grow in life by planting your seeds, then being patient and waiting for the harvest. Digging into your own nature and being self observant brings you more energy and pure applications.

Jupiter in the Twelfth House.

You have unconscious faith in life and social processes.  This positive attitude brings you luck and operates like a guardian angel in your life.

Saturn in Capricorn.

You are responsible.  You have a natural ability to complete any project for which you feel responsible.  You have a good sense of timing.


This material describes the "cutting edge" of your work on yourself. The thoughts rendered here are meant as further guidelines for growth. You should take difficulties and challenges in the right spirit.  They are always positive indicators as to how you can experience the joy of becoming a better person and more like your REAL SELF.

Afflicted Sun

The way that you naturally seek self-expression and ego satisfaction cuts against the grain of personal integration. Simply put, you get in your own way.  Locate the source of your self-imposed conflict and work toward forms of expression that bring the conflicting elements of your personality together on friendly terms.

Mercury in Leo

Although your mind is persistent your observations are colored deeply by how new information can enhance your picture of yourself.  If you learn to take yourself less seriously, the negative in your self picture lessens considerably.

Uranus in Leo

Your urge for freedom gets thwarted by your need for self expression. You can't build a bigger picture of yourself and overcome personal limitations simultaneously.  As your sense of personal identity reaches toward a larger picture, the impulse for creativity within you can be a tremendous help.

Pluto in Virgo

You suffer in the process of self-transformation because you have difficulty in making the decision to change yourself rather than changing  circumstances in your life.  Get more basic, change your attitudes and habits and life becomes much lighter.


The Growth aspects operate differently than other aspects in your chart.  While it is possible to use them descriptively, as showing finer shades of meaning within the chart, we wish to use them in a different manner for our purposes.  The growth aspects are tools of self development.  If you apply attention to the various qualities in your nature linked through the growth aspects, you will see positive change over time.  These qualities generally do not show quick effortless solutions, but instead show a path of change requiring exertion and emotional honesty. Under these circumstances, the way these aspects of your nature change through time are truly amazing. The qualities mentioned here can be the very mechanisms to release the highest, finest side of your nature.

Moon in Growth Aspect to Venus

The receptive and gentle side of your personality is always looking for an appropriate expression.  You learn by trial and error how to relate your sensitivity to others without invoking disappointment or rejection from them.  Learning how to receive what others give you freely requires work on your behalf.

Moon Semi-Sextile Venus

There is a sweetness to your personality that is not easily perceived by others.  Learn to express your true feelings and be open to other people's expressions as well.  Narrow, vain or self-indulgent feelings prohibit you from developing relationships that are truly expansive and stretching for your personality.  It takes practice but ultimately these relationships are the ones that help you understand yourself better.

Mercury Semi-Sextile Venus

The creative side of your personality becomes a path of growth for you as you learn to use every relationship as a possible form of personal understanding.  Your manner of expression and general tone of your voice reveals your attitude toward life, which of course changes dramatically through time.  When your misunderstandings and personal inflections get you into trouble with those with whom you are close (or those with whom you would like to be closer) then you find access to deeper personal resources in carrying on human relationships.  You can accomplish an unbelievable amount of work with people (in regards to end results) through very slight alterations of the intonation and inflections of your expressions and mannerisms.  Little changes can carry you a long way.

Venus in Growth Aspect to Jupiter

More is not necessarily better.  Personal development requires consistent reevaluation of values.  As you decide what is worth having in life you feel happy.  When you aren't achieving your goals it is because you are aiming at something that will disappoint you.  This indicates a time to reevaluate what you are ultimately finding as important.

Venus Quincunx Jupiter

You easily overextend yourself.  Overindulgence and exhaustion can come from feeling over-optimistic about yourself and what the world will do for you.  You take on obligations that are other people's responsibilities because you feel so good about yourself.  You are happy and healthy when you learn how to set real limits without being talked or coerced into overdoing it, in some area of your life.

Mars in Growth Aspect to Uranus

Periodic changes in direction seem to emerge from within you without forethought.  Your energy is linked to your urge for freedom in a way that can open up new doorways and new procedures to you.  As long as you treat interruptions as frustrating annoyances it is impossible for you to move forward in a way that is growth oriented.  Your challenge is to see abrupt changes that occur every so often as an opportunity to get in touch with a deeper more profound side of your nature.

Mars Semi-Sextile Uranus

You have the good fortune of receiving information that your direction needs to change whenever you are on a self-destructive or defeating path.  Your job is to see the message presented to you, then raise your sights and change direction.  This requires tremendous resolve of purpose and incredible effort to reorient your basic direction and manifestation of desires.  Slowly, through time, periodic excitement becomes progress.

Saturn in Growth aspect to Uranus

Feelings of limitation can stop you from expressing the newer insights that occur to you every so often.  The struggle that you go through in life will often center around your fears of being left out of activities that you see others participating in.  You will have to reevaluate your feelings of responsibility every so often to overcome the feeling of self denial that you put yourself through.  Growth often comes by getting down to the roots of your personal insecurity and self limiting behavior.

Saturn Quincunx Uranus

Outward achievement may take the place of inner development until you learn to monitor your needs, obligations, and desires. Setting reasonable limits on how much of your energy goes into any part of your life takes a good deal of effort and navigation, but, this is necessary to be as successful as you would like to be.


There is another dimension to your astrology chart.  This has to do with planets being the same distance from the celestial equator.  When both planets are on the same side of this plane there are called parallel.  When the planets are the same distance but on opposite sides of the celestial equator they are referred to as being contra-parallel. Both of these aspect activate your ability to organize and reorganize some aspect of your life.

Mercury Parallel Venus

You color your expressions with great cheerfulness and artistic flair. There is a sociableness to your demeanor which give you sparkle.  The aesthetic taste you bring to conversation gives you charm, graciousness, and general likeability.

Mercury Parallel Pluto

The desire to get to the bottom of an idea, a thought process, or happening in life can give you the temperament of a researcher but, it can also imbue you with a certain closed-mindedness (even paranoia) which gets in the way of productively searching out new information. Focus and tenacity of purpose give mental strength but, they can also produce allergic reactions to people, environments, and ideas. Fascination and repulsion mysteriously blend and operate simultaneously in your inner life.

Jupiter Parallel Saturn

You have a single minded focus and honesty which allows the balanced, honest, and conservative side of your nature to produce some good. You have a propensity for being able to take a philosophically impartial overview of every situation.

Jupiter Parallel Midheaven

You have luck when it comes to getting a job and you can use this skill to make many beneficial changes in your life.  You believe in yourself at some fundamental level and this positive attitude supports you in achieving your goals in life.

Moon Contra-Parallel Ascendant

You have a knack for reaching out and creating an emotional bond with others.  There is a forcefulness to your manner of expression and you can be dismayed whenever you have inadvertently run over anyone else's feelings.  There are moments of genuine connection with others over very basic concerns on life.  The trick is to make these moments endure.

Mercury Contra-Parallel Jupiter

You are open to higher thoughts that have a refining influence on your mind and values.  You are captivated with the big picture of things wishing a more positive outcome for your efforts than circumstances support.  You are generally optimistic in your appraisal of life circumstances and you enthusiastically encourages others.  You believe in the power of discussion to assist any difficult situation.

Mercury Contra-Parallel Saturn

A natural suspicion of your own thought process imbues you with a cautiousness in all of your daily affairs as well as your strategic long term planning.  Your best projects in life are those that develop slowly through time with great concern for the practical aspects and applications of your efforts.

Mercury Contra-Parallel Midheaven

You have a natural and deep interest in communicating with others, but a nervousness within you can get in your way.  In order to feel really adjusted it is important that you stay focused on the most essential aspects of what you wish to accomplish each day.  There is a playful quality to your nature which can give you an ability to connect with many types of people.

Venus Contra-Parallel Saturn

Your desire to prohibit rejection can cut you off from the deeper aspects of relationships.  You have the ability for stability and loyalty, but a feeling of depression and a gloomy outlook can rob your life of joy.  Staying focused on something positive to do with your energy and staying in motion allows you to put your best foot forward.

Jupiter Contra-Parallel Pluto

You have a big picture of what life can offer and your long view of every situation coupled with your nature instinct to be suspicious of everything that could possibly go wrong allows you to catapult into prosperity.  You have a natural ability to spot opportunity and can be very avant garde and forward looking.

Saturn Contra-Parallel Pluto

The drive to accomplish much in a short span of time and a general distrust of life comes from feeling that the world is a difficult and very limiting place.  At root, much of this feeling is based on a negative perception about yourself and what you have coming.  You are the sponsor of your own setbacks in life. Progress means to study the past world history and personal psychology in order to move forward in a responsible and effective manner.  Discipline and faith are the necessary ingredients needed to put your life on a positive footing.

Neptune Contra-Parallel North Node of the Moon

The mystical side of your personality exercises deep and unconscious control over your personality.  Be aware of your life direction, delineate your goals and priorities, then this quality of the ideal serves you well.  Your habit of rolling back into yourself when the world doesn't match your picture of the positive is both good and bad. The positive side is that you are able to hold your higher vision uninterrupted.  The down side of this is that if your vision of true is only an escapist fantasy you have a tendency under pressure to become more deeply locked into it when you are not open to correction.

Pluto Contra-Parallel Midheaven

Family problems and foundational issues in life can sidetrack your career until they are dealt with.  You have a need to explore your own depths.  This requires time alone.  You sit still in career for periods of time while you are just assimilating the deeper aspects of your own nature.


The Moon's North Node is an all encompassing and instructive point of synthesis in the chart; we could easily start or end our analysis with this one single factor.  Because this indicator is so all inclusive it most shows your karmic direction in life. The sign placement of your North node points to your destiny. When your actions, interests, and values are structured by this position, your general sense of personal well being improves. The house placement of the North Node of the Moon indicates or points to an area of life, an arena of experience.  By confronting, even augmenting this arena you can inadvertently improve every aspect of your life.  By dealing with issues connected to the North Node placement in your chart your general character strengthens and refines.

North Node of the Moon in Leo

Self-expression advances you in life, but your ability to be creative at any level is based on your foundation of self-respect.  You learn to love others more deeply and more personally when you are able to embrace and accept yourself, as you are right now.  You see yourself and others in ideal terms and relate and have commitment only to the ideal.  You admire others because they remind you of what you might become, what you feel you "should be" now.  Practice a pattern of commitment and you are led quite naturally to struggles that improve your self image.  The dramatic qualities in life give you progress.

North Node of the Moon in Leo and in the Seventh House

You have a tendency to overstudy your own reactions to life and people. Get involved.  Progress and growth come through relationships.  When you move beyond a principle of equality and humanitarianism (which often just supplies an excuse for noninvolvement) your relationships and hence your life improve. Promise very little to others but keep learning to share openheartedly.
