Personal comments NAME: Brother biGzel69 DOB: July 9th, 1988 BIRTHPLACE: Chicago, IL TIME OF BIRTH: 3:30pm[/FONT] Part I-Signs in the planets Sun in cancer With a Cancer Sun, you are a somewhat complex character - kind, diplomatic, sympathetic, highly sensitive and deeply emotional, yet very defensive, protective and at times quite unforgiving - unable to forget even a minor slight. Sun in Cancer natives have a strong survival instinct. They are protective of those they care about, and of themselves too. They are often quite reticent about sharing their inner selves to the rest of the world, and are often caught up in reminisce. You have the ability to manipulate others to get what you want yet, you avoid direct confrontations almost as a rule. You also possess a powerful imagination, and on occasions, you bring a touch of genius into the more profound affairs of life, to your and everyone else's surprise! Comfort, pleasure and relaxation are all found in your own little retreat, the home and family. Instinctive, maternal/paternal nurturing qualities make you an excellent parent and home-maker. With a sense of sound economy, you also have talent for business Likely occupations are nautical professions and work connected with the sea, institutional work, businesses and professions dealing with liquids, or professional occupations to do with religion. Moon in Gemini The Moon in Gemini gives you the ability to objectify and rationalize your emotional nature. Resourceful and keen-witted you are able to find practical solutions to any domestic or personal problems. You have an intellectual nature fond of study and should achieve emotional satisfaction from scientific or literary pursuits. Travel and out-door activities such as walking will have therapeutic effects upon your nature. Mercury in Gemini Mercury in Gemini gives you opportunity to use your mind to its fullest ability. You have good reasoning power and intense curiosity that combine to make learning easy and enjoyable. The mind is quick, versatile and full of ideas. There is a love of debate and a need to exchange views and opinions with others. This placement of Mercury usually signifies a broad rather than deep disposition of mind. Many subjects and interests are embraced, often at the same time, but few are studied to full understanding. Notwithstanding, this is a strong placing for Mercury and if mental power is directed to defined objectives then much success can be attained in any chosen direction. Venus in Gemini You are friendly, warm, open and tolerant toward others. You love variety in relationships, indeed you may even prefer to maintain more than one relationship at a time! You are hard to pin down, and may resist relationships that promise to become too "comfortable". Even those with their Sun in Taurus or Cancer, whose outward demeanor may suggest some reserve and caution, will want their relationships to be stimulating and full of conversation with Venus in Gemini. Pleasing Venus in Gemini involves a supporting need for fun and variety, showing interest in their brainpower and knowledge, and giving them space for friends and activities outside of the relationship. Very witty and humorous, you have the ability to amuse and please others. This makes you quite popular. Your innate charm and vivacity makes you welcome most everywhere you go. Always on the move, you have many different friends and places to go. Travel will appeal. Mars in Pisces Mars in Pisces indicated that you will assert yourself in an emotional, sensitive, unassuming, co-operative, cultured, humorous, refined and caring manner. Energy levels can fluctuate day to day; much depends on your emotional state of mind. You are sensitive and can get lost in the clouds on occasion. The incentive to action is governed not so much through logical assessment or practical necessity, but by intuition, 'how you feel' about a situation. Much of your personal energy is channeled into the subconscious mind, you are, therefore, naturally introspective and withdrawn. Jupiter in Taurus You have a green thumb in many areas, able to cultivate and nurture almost any endeavor. Making money is second nature, and you are able to field ideas and bring forth growth and success. Because of your natural affinity for supporting roles, you make a good financial backer or 'money man’. More than most, you could reap a rich harvest from what you sow, for luck enters your life through giving out and expecting a return. You should attract success, wealth and a luxurious life style but there is an obligation to use such wealth in a positive and socially beneficent manner - through good business ability, sound investment, prudent spending and generosity. You are a habitual collector with an expensive preference for all the good things that life has to offer. Saturn in Sagittarius There is a lift given to your ambition. The innate coolness and conservatism of Saturn is warmed by the expansive nature of Sagittarius, giving you a philosophical and even inspirational attitude toward your duties and obligations. You also realize that long-term results can be made good only through careful planning. You learn and accept new ideas only after having very thoroughly examined them. Ideals and abstract concepts are important to you only if they can be used in some practical fashion. You are so practical and so orderly that you have natural skills in planning, administrating and organizing. Uranus in Sagittarius You have new philosophical ideas for the future, and new approaches to travel and exploration of all kinds. Long journeys interest you. You may startle others with your direct conversations, always getting right to the nitty-gritty. You enjoy being alone, free and on the move. The original optimist. Neptune in Capricorn The practical is the ideal. Form follows function. You have a dream of being in control - the puppet master. You are very interested in tradition and tend to be dignified and conservative. You believe in an orderly society led by benevolent monarchs - those who can see what to do. Pluto in Scorpio You tear through appearances in an effort to get beneath, behind, and at the heart or essence. You may find psychology, initiation, mysticism and the occult of great interest. Intense personal change and inner growth are lifelong habits. Great Sexual energy. Part II- Planets in the houses Saturn, Uranus and Neptune in the 2nd house: Sagittarius in this house Saturn- A Second House Saturn suggests that your career or area of responsibility in the world relates to the acquisition of money, status and material possessions. You are required to develop prudent financial abilities, thrift, economy and a solid, conservative investment strategy. Financial growth and business expansion will require much hard work and diligent effort; however, success will eventually come through steady but slow returns. Land and property deals are favored Uranus- With a Second House Uranus you are likely to seek individual freedom of expression through original and ingenious ways of making money - possibly through hi-tech inventions, unique occupations, electronics or unusual scientific avenues of endeavor. However, your attitude to wealth and financial matters is totally unconventional - precipitating many changes in fortune, financial ups and downs and other unexpected crises. Money is often gained through friends, associations or the government. Neptune- Neptune in the Second House may indicate that your imaginative and spiritual potential will manifest through intuitive and mysterious ways of making money and using it idealistically for the benefit of others. The danger exists of dissipating your resources through vague impractical ventures. Mars in the 5th house: Pisces is in this house Mars- With Mars in the Fifth House you are likely to exert your energy and initiative in actively pursuing a rewarding love-life, social amusement and pleasure in general. You have a likable, competitive and flamboyant temperament. There is a desire for creative endeavors, strenuous sports, athletics, risk-taking pursuits and other forms of muscular exercise - gambling may be a feature. Your children will probably be an important factor in your life and much pleasure will be derived from their spontaneous affection, companionship and development. Jupiter and moon in the 7th house: Taurus in this house Moon- With the Moon in the Seventh House your feeling, instinctive nature will find expression through marriage or other close relationships. Your day-to-day response to circumstance is strongly conditioned by social and domestic factors - friends, colleagues, family and especially your romantic partner. You may marry early in order to satisfy an inherent need for friendship and close companionship - domestic and emotional security is of paramount importance. General emotional well-being is strongly dependent on your current social life, and in particular, how well close relationships are progressing. Jupiter- With Jupiter in the Seventh House you will find luck, ease of working and general good fortune coming through a good marriage and other social or business partnerships. There is likely to be success, gain and happiness through a loyal and faithful marriage partner. Your spouse will probably be of good social and financial standing, possibly older, more patient, profound or religious than yourself. Success in promised through partnerships and your ability to co-operate well with others generally. Gain through litigation or legal affairs may be a feature. Mercury and Venus in the 8th house: Gemini is in this house Mercury- Your mental and communicative abilities will largely be applied to the growth and development of the mind through the study of fundamental questions of life and death, and a search for the beyond. There is an interest in scientific, metaphysical and occult subjects. Much of your knowledge may be gained through intuitive means rather than the study of books. There is an aptitude for business and other financial dealings. Your mental disposition is ideally suited to work of an investigative nature, research, psychotherapy, psychiatry, police or detective work. Venus- Your mental and communicative abilities will largely be applied to the growth and development of the mind through the study of fundamental questions of life and death, and a search for the beyond. There is an interest in scientific, metaphysical and occult subjects. Much of your knowledge may be gained through intuitive means rather than the study of books. There is an aptitude for business and other financial dealings. Your mental disposition is ideally suited to work of an investigative nature, research, psychotherapy, psychiatry, police or detective work. Sun in the 9th house: Cancer is in this house Sun- With the Sun in the ninth house, your interests lie in the synthesizing of ideas and information into philosophy, religion or higher education, or informing the public of these things, such as through publishing. You are direct and candid and tend to brush past appearances to settle on the truth within. There is probably long distance travel in your life, and/or relationships with those who have been foreign born. You may counsel or be a teacher to others. Pluto in the 12th house Pluto- With Pluto in the Twelfth House opportunities for transforming or regenerating yourself may come through a preoccupation with the subconscious mind and spiritual evolution. You are likely to become secretive, reclusive and withdrawn, given to meditation and study. The more profound areas of life are investigated through subjects such as psychology, mysticism, metaphysics religion and the occult. With Pluto in your twelfth house you keep tight control over your inner world. You have the gift of being able to look deep within yourself and transform bad habits, old ways of thinking and unsupportive behaviors into gifts. You can benefit from the analysis of your dreams, and any work that lets you decipher your unconscious motives. In the negative, you may fear death to a heightened degree because of Pluto’s preoccupation with the regeneration cycle in the twelfth house, which amplifies fear. You may bring powerful people into your life as a projection of the power that you have but feel uncomfortable expressing. There is a tendency to look into your mind for problems creating obsessions and worries. Anger can be expressed in passive/aggressive ways. You can hold a memory of a wrongdoing for a long time. In the positive, you can use your desires to create changes toward peace in the world, powerfully interpreting the spiritual text of any religion (or writing your own) to help guide people to their own of inner peace. Prisons and institutions may make you uncomfortable but you could make a big difference in these places. Part III- signs in the houses Scorpio on the 1st House Cusp (rising/ascendant sign) [ON a side note, I find this an EXTREMELY IMPORTANT part of which I am, and this description is the best description I have found through my research. It will be relatively longer than the rest of the signs in this section.] Scorpio rising symbolizes that you're self-controlled, stoical, reserved in expression and silent in your defense. You have great strength, depth, and the determination to overcome all adversaries. Willful and self-reliant, you need to overcome lingering resentment and jealousy. With Scorpio Rising, the personality and the spirit do battle unto death. And it is the personality that must evolve through death and rebirth. You're magnetic and very aware of the sexual energy in your environment, and have the ability to drastically alter your surroundings as well. You appear to others as intense, passionate, secretive, penetrating and sensitive. You know how to get to the heart of things, and gravitate to positions of power and control. There is a great reserve and hidden power with Scorpio Rising that is felt and respected by others. You're inclined to be very suspicious or skeptical, and occasionally you can be "stingily” sarcastic. Every sign has a positive and negative expression, but with the Scorpio the range of possibilities is extreme. Everything is black or white. There are no shades of gray with Scorpio on the rise. Your penetrating stare can look right through a person or a situation. You can make an instant diagnosis and it is usually the right one. It's not easy to know you, for you're a deep individual and silent even in suffering. You're courageous, persistent, and cool-headed in a crisis. The heavier the burden, the more you'll quietly see your task through to the end. As you're intuitive and psychic, there's all the more reason for you to protect others from the accuracy of your sarcasm. You have healing power if used appropriately. Heavy afflictions to Pluto can indicate viciousness, as you're very perceptive of others' weaknesses. Sagittarius on the 2nd House Cusp-Sagittarius is nothing if not direct, candid, and to the point, for this sign is always concerned with the absolute truth of the subject at hand. Associated with philosophy, outreach and all things boundless, Sagittarian energy is always welcome in politics as well as social and community endeavors where its basic fairness and expansiveness is helpful. Capricorn on the 3rd House Cusp- Capricorn is the business head of the zodiac, for it is the very opposite of the emotional Cancer. Given to clear ambition and practical insight and vision, this sign always takes a distanced perspective and a cool appraisal. Deliberate and painstaking, sometimes to the point of austerity, Capricorn loves work and the hard-earned results. Status and material reward are very important. Aquarius on the 4th House Cusp- Aquarius is the sign of humanitarian goals and altruism. Always impartial and nonsectarian, Aquarian energy is communal (even global). The focus is on the goal, and the goal is always one that is for the many and not the few. Thus this sign is connected to far-seeing visions, world views and group work of all kinds. This sign tends towards coolness, and independence. Pisces on the 5th House Cusp- Pisces energy runs deep and toward the mystical -whatever transcends the everyday world. This sign is understanding, patient and compassionate. Super-sensitive, it tends to absorb its surroundings like a sponge. The sign is very trusting (I don’t relate to this), accepting and giving of itself for the sake of more important issues. It loves free-ranging activities which allow for some imaginative scope. Aries on the 6th House Cusp- Aries is the sign of pioneers, leaders and 'firsts'. It is impulsive, assertive and spontaneous. It tends to act first, only thinking about what it may have done later. Rushing in where others fear to tread, Aries energy is attention-getting and always provokes a response from the surroundings and from others. It takes decisive action and loves self-reliance. Taurus on the 7th House Cusp [descendant]- Taurus is about drawing on the bounty of the earth, and seeking material security and physical safety there. It is the on-going, enduring, unchanging and preserving element. Heightened sensory input is also important, for it is the mission of this sign to not only find a sense of place within the material realm, but to enjoy it to the fullest, becoming physically aware of, and bonding with the environment. Gemini on the 8th House Cusp-Gemini is concerned with connections, communication and logic -- voice, thoughts, writing, and rational mental processes in general. It is also concerned with making comparisons, 'twins' and duplications of all kinds. Gemini is the communicator, the gossip of the zodiac, the collector of trivia. Gemini energy is unattached, independent, very inquisitive and changeable. Cancer on the 9th House Cusp-Cancer is the mother of the zodiac, always making a home, protecting and providing a foundation for others. A sensitive sign where feelings and real experience count more than cold logic, it doesn't get any more physical and emotional than this. Cancer energy is always nurturing, sensitive, tender and moody. It feeds on emotional comforts, and often has a strong attachment to the past and ancestry. Leo on the 10th House Cusp-Leo energy is expressive, vital and exuberant. Often very artistic, and always theatrical and dramatic, this is the sign of creativity and the arts. Warm and big-hearted, Leo lives in full appreciation and celebration of the finer elements of life, bringing a dynamism and enthusiasm to everything it touches. This is the fearless 'becoming' stage, where things are done for their own sake, playfully and with pleasure. Virgo on the 11th House Cusp-Virgo energy is analytical and precise, always separating out what is worthwhile and worth supporting from that which is outmoded and of no further use. A mental earth sign, here the mind takes control over matter. This is the sign of 'ways and means', implementation, instrumentation, physical effectiveness and efficiency. Virgo energy is always facilitating, often caring more for others than for itself. Libra on the 12th House Cusp-Libra energy is always responsive and conciliating, assuming the appropriate reaction or delicately-weighted strategic response to any question or statement. What is sometimes seen as two-faced is only Libra's facility at responding to each in kind, giving both sides equal consideration. This is certainly the social sign, par excellence. Impersonal and impartial, this sign doles out only what is demanded - nothing overdone, but nothing neglected. Part IV- planetary aspects Sun opposition Neptune- You often avoid commitment and entering fully into emotional involvements through fears of being trapped or dominated, which, allied to a suspicious nature, does not augur well for stable relationships. As you are liable to fall under the negative Neptunian glamours regarding love and romance, this tendency may have developed from previous shattering disappointments. If this becomes a repetitive pattern in your life, then the cause is probably within yourself, and it is by exploration and inward journey to contact the solar light that you can discover and illumine your potential solution. Coming to terms with such influential patterns concerning your identity and relationships requires considerable honesty and commitment. Beneficial change can be stimulated, but only if you really want it and are willing to put in the effort. The main problem with inner glamours and illusions is that they are so difficult to identify correctly, and obviously such distorting mirrors make it hard to perceive with clarity. The real effect of spiritual transformation shatters these mirrors. Being able to recognize and acknowledge that such problems exist is the first the first and most important step, followed by consistent action to discover the appropriate remedy. Most have in common a childhood that didn't help the natives direct or define their lives. Perhaps the early family life was lacking in supervision or clearly defined rules. A father figure may have been absent or distant and ineffective. Many people with these aspects have a glorified image of their fathers. Whether the image is very positive or very negative (or if it swings between these extremes), the image is not very clear or rational. Whatever the case may be, these people struggle with defining who they are. Discerning your aims in life, perhaps developing a program towards achieving some of them, can give a directional focus, and allow you to express freely that blocked and frustrated potential which may have been previously inhibited. Taking such steps can renew yourself and relationships, protecting you from being negatively influenced by surrounding environmental influences entering your psyche. Once the changes are made, you can have much to offer people, where your sacrificial tendencies can be beneficial and reflect your higher solar path instead of an illusory Neptunian one. Working with types of meditation which deglamorize and strip away illusory veils of personality, or with relationship therapies, can be suitable approaches to cleanse yourself of the negative Neptunian tendencies, in order for the light of your coordinating Sun center to shine through more powerfully Sun semisquare moon- Your innermost will feels like it's in a constant state of trying to make peace with your feeling, emotional side. Even so this lack of complete harmony within yourself can provide the spark that motivates you toward personal achievements. Most likely there existed some kind of tension between your parents. Even if this was not openly expressed, you picked up on it as a child. As a result you may have inner expectations that relationships must contain a certain element of conflict. At any rate, this also means that Mom and Dad kept each other in line somehow. Sun trine Pluto- The relationship of the Sun-Pluto trine is potentially quite harmonious, and you should have the ability to concentrate and apply your willpower, coupled with the option of a regenerative transformation which may be necessary to achieve self-integration and your chosen aims. There will be less influence by the undermining quality of the Pluto energy, provided that you utilize your natural gifts in socially acceptable ways. You are able to make maximum use of innate resources, turning them to your advantage to achieve your goals. You will display a social awareness, and will feel attracted to applying your talents towards improving the social environment. Your ability to have a natural insight into resolving problems in the most effective manner can lead to a possible career or vocation in challenging problem-solving areas. You will have certain financial skills and a logical and deductive mind, preferring to tackle projects where you can reclaim order from chaos. This gives a sense of satisfaction, as you dislike chaos and a lack of structure; you want to be in control and create an ordered harmony in your life and environment. You have the potential to be a spokesperson or leader, where your vitality gives the impression of purposeful direction, and your optimistic and inspiring creative expression can attract support. This occurs naturally, without the usual Pluto desires for power and manipulative influencing of others; indeed, you have little compulsive desire to be an authoritative leader. There can be an intuitive ability which offers you clear insights into situations, possibly even a degree of clairvoyance, which any exploration into yoga, meditation and ways of self-discovery could release and amplify. There may be a healing energy from you, possibly aiding others who can absorb excessive energy releases from you on an unconscious level, and you can be a reliable support to anyone who requires aid in resolving problems. You may benefit from what appears to be 'luck' in your life; this can come from inheritances, or by the ill fortune of others. You have considerable creative potential, but to release this fully you may have to experience some inner transformation which dissolves any blocks which are initially frustrating your success. This involves learning how to use this aspect to full advantage. Assuming that you are able to channel this energy towards socially beneficent results, and ensuring that you do not try to evade facing and resolving any important personal problems that arise - within yourself or within a relationship - then you should experience few of the traditional difficulties associated with an un-integrated Pluto energy; which, for many people, could be considered a blessing. Sun trine the ascendant- The Sun trine the Ascendant shows that you have a generous disposition, and you are self-confident about your ability to succeed in almost everything you do. You are generally optimistic about all your affairs, and easily win the co-operation of the people you deal with. Creative by nature, you use your talents with such imagination that it seems inspired. Although you have abundant vitality, you are inclined to be apathetic about taking full advantage of your potentials, so you shortchange yourself of the benefits you could derive from them. Possibly you are even lazy at times, feeling that there is plenty of time to do what you have to. You have inherited good resources of character from your parents, but you still have a mind of your own. If you will accept the responsibility for it, you can successfully seek your own fortune. You give too much attention to your shortcomings and failings, and you do not react well to criticism. You like to believe that you do everything as well as the next person, and for the most part you do. Your future is very important to you, and you seek a career that will allow you creative expression and give you security in later years. Because you prefer a career that makes demands on your talents, you will probably become a professional in the endeavor you choose. You want to be admired for performing your job well, and you expect to be well paid. You need the challenge of competition in order to strive for excellence in your craft. Moon conjunct Jupiter- You are tolerant and forgiving, always ready to overlook mistakes and give others a second chance. You expect the best from people and draw it out of them, and you enjoy making others comfortable and happy. Because of your emotional generosity, your life is rich with friends, and often financial blessings as well. You are hospitable, kind, and forgiving. Sometimes quite opinionated, however, you possess a strong sense of right and wrong. When someone is down, you are the first people to jump in with support and advice. Not everyone wants to deal with their emotions in such a rational manner, however, so Moon conjunct Jupiter people can sometimes support people in a way that is not always appreciated, but their kind-hearted approach is generally well-received. These people have a sense of humor that makes them a joy to be around. They are also very intuitive. Their hunches and premonitions are often right on target. As such, they can have a reputation for being quite "lucky". It's not necessarily psychism that is at the root of this, however. It is more about an expansive understanding of human nature and the world around them. Moon square Midheaven- First of all, your needs and feelings may often conflict with what other people seem to expect of you. Or you may feel like going one way even though you know it would be better to go the opposite way. The problem is, there is no one answer as to which way you should go each time. Your feelings are sometimes more correct than rational judgments, which may be based on ideas taught by others with no thought for your individuality. You have to live with others, but at the same time you have to be yourself. If reason tells you to go one way and emotion says the opposite, think about your choices carefully. If the 'reasonable' path helps others but offers you very little, then your emotions may be trying to tell you what your real needs are. On the other hand, your feelings may come from old, outdated ideas and silly childish fears. You may be reluctant to face the world of growing up. You will need the advice of a faithful friend, perhaps one of your parents, who can show you which choice is best for you without having a stake in the result. As you get older, you should be able to make these decisions more easily. Your emotions and ideas about your life should reinforce each other. Take your time growing up, however; you may take longer than others, because you have farther to go. Moon sextile Mars- Often you try to impose mental control over volatile feelings. This is because previous experience has revealed an emotional volcano lurking in your depths, which can erupt aggressively and destructively whenever emotions are provoked or when prolonged stress cannot be contained any longer. Your temper can flare at such times; and, if emotional pressure builds inside, you can become argumentative just for an excuse to release blocked energy; yet, once the energy has flowed outward and the pressure diminishes, you feel much better - the question is, how much damage have you done? - One valuable asset is the temporary lunar block on impulsive, Martian action which ensures that you think before leaping. You may be skilled with financial matters, attracted toward enterprise and commerce due to recognizing suitable opportunities. Mars increases self-confidence, providing courage and initiative to take advantage of situations, and abundant energy to combine with emotional desires to help accomplish aims. Feeling confident and secure, you relish life's challenges; and even occasional failures do not diminish faith in your abilities. You take a philosophical view that you can't win them all, and then overcome the majority of challenges. Rarely do you seek conflict, preferring to control inner pressures that can develop through emotional vulnerability. This is something learned through life experiences and then translated into a growing maturity, understanding, and integration. Moon inconjunct Uranus- The inconjunct from the Moon to Uranus shows that you must solve your emotional problems before you can really feel free. You may be distressed by the fact that as soon as you solve one problem, then you discover another. However, in this process you become skilled in dealing with recurring crises. In time, they will no longer occur - and you will be free. The difficulties you experience are a direct result of conditioning by your parents. You were emotionally unprepared to accept the burdens you were expected to carry. Because of this you felt guilty and tried to do whatever you could to rid yourself of this guilt. Be careful that you are not abused by people who claim that you alone can satisfy their needs. This is a confidence tactic to gain your submission and willingness to serve, even though others could do equally well. Your sensitive, emotional nature should warn you not to become trapped in distressing situations. Your resistance is low, and you could suffer from nervous ailments caused by the pressure of your burdens. It is important that you prevent this by refusing to do anything beyond what is absolutely necessary. Rest and relaxation are essential and should be an integral part of your life. In your romantic attachments, you may find that you often play the servant role. You hope to be relieved of your problems by marrying out of them. If you feel no guilt for what you haven't done, there is no reason why you can't succeed in this. Moon inconjunct Saturn- Feeling inferior to others will interfere with your goals in life. Establish priorities concerning the matters that relate to others and those that pertain to yourself. Give attention to your own needs before you even think about doing anything for others. You'll find that they will find a way to take care of their problems. Don't be an emotional patsy for persons who will brutalize you emotionally with their guilt and incompetence. Once you gain a proper perspective on the limits of your obligations, you can plan your future. You may find social service attractive, or education, politics or medicine. Whichever field you choose, you will bring resources and potential growth that will enable you to accomplish your objectives. You are suited to work as a specialist; you have a good memory, you are responsible, and when your efforts are rewarded you try even harder. If you should decide to go into education, consider research sciences as a platform for your talents. Your attention to detail lends itself well to the precision required in such areas. Your romantic life may get off to a slow start, and its subsequent development depends entirely on whether you can reverse your inclination to let others walk all over you and take you for granted. You should know how capable you are, and, if you capitalize on your assets, others will notice you as a private person, secure and proud in your accomplishments. You will expect your partner to need you in ways that only you can satisfy. It is essential that there be mutual respect for the individual differences between you and a willingness to serve each other when necessary. Under no circumstances should you accept an arrangement that would obscure one partner while furthering the desires of the other. This kind of burden would grow unbearably heavy and eventually undermine the relationship. Mercury opposite Saturn- The opposition from Mercury to Saturn shows that you are strongly opinionated and defensive. You have considerable intellectual ability and can accomplish any goal you set for yourself. You may be inclined to bend the truth in order to get your way with people, but people are more discerning than you realize and often are aware of your deceptions. In this way you will lose friends, which can make you depressed when you are alone. An isolationist to begin with, you alienate your few associates with your criticism and scheming. All this adds up to the fact that you must learn to mind your own business and have respect for the privacy of others. Don't assume that other people think a certain way and then complain because they don't think that way. Your professional life will be strained unless you can become engrossed in your own affairs and forget what the competition is doing. Becoming skilled and competent in your job will give you the security you need. Some professions to which you can certainly make a significant contribution are: architecture, drafting, science, research, education, politics, government service, conservation of natural resources, and accounting. Many of these are challenging occupations that should command all of your attention and make sufficient demands on your talents. If you apply yourself, you will gain the recognition you deserve as a specialist and expert in your field. Then you will have no fear that anyone can upstage you or exploit your knowledge for their benefit. Don't isolate yourself so much that you don't see other opportunities that may come your way. Stop looking for recognition from your colleagues - your effectiveness should be all the proof you need of your own worth. If you can occupy yourself with your own affairs, you will not be angered when associates are promoted. You must understand that when you've proved yourself, you too will be considered for promotion. You should maintain high moral and ethical standards to eliminate possible attacks on your reputation, which could seriously damage your prospects for growth and prosperity. This kind of recognition you can do without. Always read contracts carefully, or, better still, get the advice of counsel. You can easily miss an important detail that may have serious repercussions later. Don't say yes when you mean no just because your schemes will be more successful if you agree. In general, if you keep all your affairs in order, you will reduce the chances of having troublesome complications that only divert you from your objectives. Mercury opposite Uranus- With this opposition, you are likely to experience conflicts in your social relationships. The problem area will be in how you express yourself in communicating with others, and those inner attitudes which condition that style of communication. Whilst you will have considerable mental vitality, the difficulty will be in directing this into productive channels. The tendency will be towards an erratic inner activity; the nature of your beliefs, ideals and thought-patterns will be changeable; and the attractions of new stimulation will often tempt you away from completing existing projects. The challenge of the new redirects your energy and interests; and so your commitments and responsibilities may feel like restrictive liabilities. Despite this erratic pattern of mind, you tend to insist that whatever you say and think is valid, even though only a short time ago you were vehemently declaring an entirely opposite attitude, idea or belief. Obviously, this can lead to interpersonal conflict, as most people prefer dealing with relatively stable and consistent individuals, as it helps to develop trust and continuity. Yet if others challenge you by repeating past statements that you have made and are now contradicting, you tend to take offence, often attempting to deny that you ever did say that. Essentially, your reaction is often to deny all prior expressions of yourself, refusing to take any responsibility for them. Having experienced this aspect of your nature, many people will begin to draw away from maintaining a relationship with you, because you seem unreliable and difficult to believe. This in a peculiar way reinforces a tendency in you to see yourself as 'unique and misunderstood, which you often use to justify a rejection of social compromise; and you never admit in any circumstances that you are wrong. You appear to project the belief that you 'know it all', and probably succeed more in deluding yourself that you do than in persuading others of your expert knowledge. Underlying these more negative styles of expression is a personality which experiences inner confusion and insecurity, yet attempts to hide this by a superficial image of intellectual superiority. Emotionally, there is likely to be immaturity and lack of ease with that level of your nature, and you are unlikely to touch others easily with the warmth of your personality. This lack of sensitivity and responsiveness to the more intangible 'feeling' aspect of human contact often leads to a tactless and blunt expression, where your ignorance of diplomacy can have negative consequences. How can you resolve or moderate these challenges within your relationships? The first important step is to acknowledge their presence, to admit that you often are this way. The fact that you may deny them to yourself does not mean that others do not see them clearly. Often, others do see such problem areas, whilst the individual is apparently blind to their existence. They are personal delusions. Being willing to work with people, learning to compromise, and participating as an intellectual equal, will help to moderate these oppositional tendencies. It is a new sense of personal identity that you should attempt to develop, one founded upon the real you, and not the socially projected assertive one that others may react against. It will involve an acceptance of your inner vulnerability, dissolving that peculiar egotistical construction, and ceasing your attempts to impress people. By stopping that process, you may begin to find your centre, resolve certain conflicts, and redirect the flow of the aspect energy towards personal renewal. Certainly, that inner erratic agitation could be more harmonized and adjusted, thus reducing that build-up of nervous tension from which you suffer. Mercury square mars- The square from Mercury to Mars gives you enormous mental energy for tackling arduous tasks, but you may lack the determination to persist and complete them. You are strongly opinionated, and get angry when your views are not accepted. People may avoid getting into a conversation with you because you will start an argument at the slightest provocation. You are not a good listener if the opinions being expressed are different from yours. You find fault with just about everything, and no situation is too insignficant to escape your notice. Your rudeness to others is tactless and abusive, and you don't even realize it. You should learn to be silent when you are not fully informed on a subject, or you risk being ridiculed by those who know what they're talking about. Your imagination is highly developed, and you only need to apply it constructively. You will have to make many concessions to others before you can succeed in any profession. Other people need to express themselves just as much as you do; until you learn to adjust to their needs, you will encounter severe obstacles to your desires. You will meet a lot of competition in seeking your goals, but most people are willing to compromise if you give them the opportunity. If you are wrong, admit it. If you are right, say so diplomatically. By doing so, you will come through with flying colors. No-one likes a braggart, and everyone admires a person with the strength of character to admit human failing. When you have dealt with the need to concede to the rights of others, you can achieve success in such fields as law, management, teaching, writing, drama, public relations, or any other communicative endeavor. You could also find satisfaction in sports, either as a performer or in related functions. You will win sometimes, but you must learn to be a good sport when you lose. Many of the points mentioned in relation to social contacts can also be applied to your romantic interests. You tend to be bitter and vindictive when your attentions are not welcomed. Try to be gracious and shrug off the disappointment. Although you may think you want your partner to be submissive, you would lose respect if that were the case. You need someone who will challenge you to demonstrate your maturity and character. Mercury Sextile Midheaven- As you go through life, you will be in touch with your own and other people's inner feelings and psychological currents. Your rational mind is more influenced than most by feelings and intuitions, which will deepen your understanding of the world. While you are young, however, it may not be easy to tell people about what you see so clearly. People may think of you as somewhat reserved and secretive. You are not trying to be mysterious, but you have already learned that if you don't choose your words carefully, others will misunderstand you, with some unpleasant results. It will take time before your ability to express yourself catches up with what you already know intuitively. You may be attracted to mysteries and puzzles, because you like to examine secrets. In fact, you may build up your own secret universe to wander around in, not just for idle play but as a way to express your creative insights. When you are older, you will use your mind to help you understand human nature. You are a natural psychologist, and later you will be able to communicate your ideas to others through speaking or writing. You will spend much time planning and arranging your future in your head. Instead of falling into a career by accident, you will work out everything you must do to get where you want to go. You will study hard to achieve your ambition, and you should be a good student in any subject related to this interest. Mercury Sesquiquadrate Pluto- You may feel some confusion when it comes to organizing your experiences, for Your unconscious motives sometimes give a compulsive quality to your actions, which arouses strong reactions from others, or you may feel the need to interfere in other's business. You need to learn to assert yourself more evenly, identifying less with your opinions and developing greater objectivity. Venus Inconjunct Ascendent- Venus inconjunct the Ascendant shows that you are more compromising than necessary toward those you are in close contact with. You do favors for people so that they will appreciate you, and you make concessions to them in order to keep peace. But you may secretly hate yourself for this when you think about it later, for you realize that by conceding you've given them your consent to treat you as they wish. You may not have the opportunity to develop all your creative potentials, but you will be satisfied if some of them are developed. You know how to compensate for what is lacking in your life and can get by with a lot less than most people would be happy with. You don't measure your happiness by what you get but by the degree of fulfillment you derive from what you are doing. You try to communicate with other members of the family, and make whatever compromises are necessary to maintain harmony in your home. You are willing to work to get what you want, and you hope that those close to you will appreciate your efforts. Sometimes you feel that you are being taken advantage of, but you make a point of trying to serve in any way you can. You have a fair number of friends, but you question the friendship of someone who asks for a loan. In your work, you adapt yourself to the demands of each job. Overreacting to what you think is expected, you extend yourself too far in complying with these demands. However, you win the good fellowship of your co-workers and superiors alike. Security is very important to you, but it may seem that you will never have it. Perhaps you will marry for financial advantage, although that would mean making a substantial compromise, which you might not be able to live with. On the other hand, you might justify your decision by looking back at all the concessions you had to make that only served to benefit others. Mars square Uranus- The square will be felt as an inner tension: you are torn between the Uranian search for freedom and a deep need to feel safe and secure. This is a clash between the familiar patterns of the known and the siren call of the potential of the unknown. This is likely to be felt as a fear of commitment and risk. Whilst you will be attracted towards greater freedom, with the possibility of creating a context where you can be more fully yourself, the likelihood is that you will resist the impulse. As you analyze your options, you prefer to play safe, as you cannot obtain these cast-iron guarantees that you would like as to the future success of your choices. This inner frustration that is likely to build up can cause stress, as a part of your nature is being denied and repressed. You are liable to feel some emotional unease, where you are afraid of allowing full emotional expression, or even properly acknowledging your emotional nature. It is a fear of 'letting go' that is the root of this difficulty, where emotional or material losses are to be avoided if at all possible. This may have arisen through childhood experiences of loss which deeply affected you, or though a pattern developing that too strongly identified your self with people or possessions, so that with any withdrawal or removal of them from your life, you felt that you were losing part of yourself. You will feel that you need to keep a tight control on life, trying to ensure that chance and predictability are fended off; in this sense, you accept the more grounding energy of Mars, whilst denying the unsettling but potentially liberating energy of Uranus. You apply the Mars energy in terms of conservation, ensuring a protection of your resources through prudent and cautious organization. You intend to apply yourself diligently to your objectives, even if you expect that they will take longer to achieve without taking risks; the problem is that for varying reasons, your intentions often fail to be realized, perhaps through an impatient Uranus unraveling those attempts at persistent effort. Or your interest wanes as you reach a point where a more risky decisive step has to be taken. When that journey of a thousand miles requires the taking of the first step, you may decide not to travel anywhere, preferring established security. Yet you may find that you are willing to allow the Uranian impulse to move freely in your life. This could initially arise as a result of a phase of denial where some external circumstance beyond your control throws you into a period of confusion and turmoil. Redundancy or the sudden collapse of a marriage could be triggers for Uranus to break through that dam. Certainly, it will not be denied expression for all your life, and that side of the square will need to be accepted and integrated. There is potential that even while maintaining your relative control you could safely begin to open up to new horizons, to explore other interests, to expand and liberate your limiting conception of your nature and life. There are strong foundations there, and you should be able to build efficiently upon them. TO achieve those ambitions and personal desires, you will have to take some risks at some point, If you are not committed to achieving them, then it is unlikely that you will ever succeed, because your focus and energy flow will be too diffused and unconcentrated to generate the necessary momentum. That erratic will-power needs to be drawn through into a regular consistent direction. If you can succeed in liberating that inner frustrating tension, you would be surprised how effectively that energy could be applied to reach your aims, instead of clashing within you. Your personal relationships would also improve as the stress began to disperse, and you felt that a great weight was lifting away from your shoulders. Releasing that pent-up, potentially violent energy could mean the dawn of a new era of personal creative enrichment. To free yourself from the restrictions of this square aspect, you have to open up to life's insecurities and risks. It's your choice. Mars square Saturn-With Mars square Saturn, you alternate between periods of aggression and periods of recession and apathy. You are constantly at war with yourself because you cannot resolve this problem, which is not an easy one, as your experience has shown. Even when you gather the will to assert yourself, you are apprehensive that your timing may be off. Likewise, when inertia prevails, you realize you should have taken advantage of an opportunity earlier. Only time will improve your capacity to correctly judge when you should take action. You will have to be very careful not to become embittered by your occasional setbacks. If you can learn from them, you are ahead because of the experience. Potentially you can accomplish much, once you know your limits. You can excel in occupations requiring endurance and follow-through, as in the fields of military service, land development, sports, and physical therapy. In whatever profession you follow, you must be willing to start at the bottom and work your way to the top. There is no easy way to gain a position of authority - you must earn it. Any shortcuts to the top are at best hazardous, because your position will be insecure. Your greatest lessons in life will probably be learned through your relationships with others. You don't always know just how much you can assert yourself in your associations. You especially need to develop your opinion of yourself by learning to use your talents so skillfully that you never need to feel threatened by anyone else. You must develop self-confidence about meeting challenge and competitors. When you say 'No!' you must mean it, and when you say 'Yes!' it should be with firm conviction based on reason. You must especially avoid vacillation and indecision, because they raise doubts about your credibility. Your romantic relationships are ensnarled with inconsistencies of temperament and emotional intent. You suffer deeply if your advances are rejected by someone. It is possible for you to become vindictive and even use physical violence against people you don't really want to hurt. You tend to hurt the one you love without realizing it. Caution in all physical activities is advised, because this planetary combination inclines to accidents and broken bones. Be particularly careful around machinery, and when you are unsure whether you can do something that requires considerable physical strength, don't. Mars sextile Jupiter- You tend to be restless and prone to boredom. You need a partner who can keep up with your lightning responses to your environment—and one who truly understands your You have tremendous personal resources with which to achieve your goals. Although the goals you set for yourself are likely to be somewhat ambitious, you are willing to work hard to see that they are achieved. Ever since you were a child and learned to invent indoor games to amuse yourself, you have steadily worked at developing your intellectual skills. This prepared you to deal well with competitive situations in your adult life. Communication is important to you. Your dramatic delivery and flair for using the right words make you a formidable opponent in any debate. It is particularly difficult to win a debate with you because you only present information that is well documented and convincing. You also use this skill to come to the aid of others who cannot defend themselves intellectually, which is admirable indeed! Others admire your confidence and straightforwardness. You respect others who stand firm on their convictions and have high ambitions. It is important that everyone who deals with you does so with honesty and integrity. In your love life, you appreciate a partner who is intellectually strong. You have a strong sex drive, but without the mental component, no relationship will last very long. You also seek a partner with spiritual consciousness. Your warmth and enthusiasm on a sexual level is apparent, and you don’t tire easily. Your interest doesn’t fade easily over time. Mars Inconjunct Midheaven- This aspect can mean that you have mixed feelings about all authority figures, including your parents. You may feel that you have to violate the rules laid down by your parents in order to get your way. This is a significant problem, because if it continues into adulthood, you will have great difficulties with employers. Therefore it is very important that your parents teach you how to express your self-assertive drives without going against their teachings. Unfortunately, it is impossible to state how that should be done, because the conflict between self-will, on the one hand, and self-denial and work, on the other, is different for each person. Clearly, you should spend a lot of time releasing your great energy in vigorous play. The more energy you use up in this way, the less you will need to assert yourself destructively. You must learn what society demands, such as going to school and doing schoolwork, learning to obey instructions for your own good and so forth. Another way to solve this kind of conflict is to learn that you can say what needs to be said and not be forced to remain quiet. You can't expect your elders to always go along with your ideas, but you should be able to feel confident of your right to say it. The exception to this, of course, is that you do not have any right to say something just to hurt others. Mars Sesquiqudrate Ascendant- You may feel some confusion about when to be your natural self, and when to assert yourself more forcibly. You feel that you either have to sacrifice your wishes, or sacrifice getting along with people. This need not be so, however, and as you gain experience you will find that you are able to balance your energies so that you get what you want without too many disputes. Jupiter inconjunct Saturn- You easily overextend yourself, then wonder why others take advantage of you. Learning to see your real obligations without being talked into having an overblown picture of yourself is the way to success. You can get in a trap of believing that only you can do a certain task, thus you end up having to do it. At root you may find the same item in your personality that throws your self picture askew is that quality which causes you to develop a self-righteous attachment to your deeply held prejudices. Eat moderately, and never eat when you are suffering from any anxiety. You are inclined to have problems in digestion and assimilation. You must learn to relax in order to stay healthy. Get away frequently from your daily occupation, and see unfamiliar faces and places. A brisk walk or physical exercise is especially beneficial for you. Jupiter inconjunct Uranus- With Jupiter inconjunct Uranus, your dreams for the future undergo reversals that are difficult to control. The problem is mainly that you expect too much, since your dreams are probably unrealistic and far-fetched. Self-discipline and careful management are the only solutions. You tend to listen to people who encourage you to extend yourself beyond safe limits. In your eagerness for instant results, you sometimes fail to plan your moves sufficiently. You overreact to suggestion and condition yourself to submit to others, which undermines your own needs and desires. You are capable of working well in many occupations. In any job, however, you must be wary of associates who try to trap you into performing their tasks. The problem is mainly that your easy-going nature gives others opportunities to take advantage of you. You must learn to understand what motivates such people to abuse you, and to anticipate it. Be adamant in refusing even their most persistent demands. You can succeed in medicine, law, research, or education. You must, however, establish your priorities, which are essential to success. You need to manage your time and effort more efficiently in order to derive the full benefit from your talents. Be careful you don't 'spill' of yourself to benefit others, unless you are gaining the results too. Your inability to co-ordinate your skills and efforts with your desire to succeed indicates the importance of gaining the services of an advisor / counselor. A close friend you trust is probably the best bet. But if you don't listen to advice, it will do you little good. Beware of romantic interests that find you doing all kinds of favors to 'prove' your love. Also be cautious of declaring your love unless there is tangible evidence that it is returned sincerely. Sufficient rest is essential for you to maintain good health and general well-being. Avoid excess in all things. Jupiter Square Midheaven- You have a lot of energy, and you want to accomplish something in life, but you will have to learn how to balance your own interests with the interests of other people in your life. If you do that, you can have good relations with others and achieve what you want as well. Sometimes this aspect indicates a very selfish attitude, a feeling that you are the only one who counts in this world. If you carry this too far, you will find that everyone you meet works against you because you seem so selfish and arrogant or just because you come on too strong. Sometimes this aspect means you have conflicts with authority figures, because they feel that you are trying to get above your proper place or that you are a threat to them. While you are young, you should avoid getting a reputation as a smart-aleck, because such people do not get many breaks from others, especially those above them. You have a very strong belief in right and wrong, but you must learn to have more compassion for those who are on the wrong track. You are strongly tempted to preach to people who are in error, and you may do this at times. But then everyone will watch you to see what kinds of mistakes you make. If you can be more humble and realize that you do not have all the answers, you can convert the negative elements of this aspect to a very positive energy. Others will feel very good about you, knowing they can trust you to do whatever is right and necessary in a situation. Saturn Conjunct Uranus-During the twentieth century, the conjunction aspect was made during 1942 and in 1988. It offers the possibility of an effective balance between these two antagonistic planets. Apart from those born under this aspect, the energy released into the collective mind at these times can aid in the interplay between forces of order and chaos, conceivably bringing the opposites into equilibrium and allowing a space for something new to be born. For the individual with this aspect, there should be the ability to fuse ideas with practical application, to ground and anchor those sometimes slightly intangible and ephemeral Uranian ideas, thus transferring the, from the level of mind into material existence. You should be able to take advantage of your personal resources and talents; and these can be effectively expressed through efficient organization. The flow of Uranian energy should seem more consistent and reliable; and you will be able to apply persistence and focused will to achieve your objectives. Often, you will find enjoyment from becoming involved in situations where you can create order from chaos. Whilst this may appear Saturnian in nature, Uranus is not chaotic for the sake of it, but is only disruptive in order to create the conditions for a higher order to be superimposed. You can function in a 'bridging role', carefully restoring a balance between order and change, and re-integrating this into a new structure which is an improvement on the previous one. In modern life, where so many changes are occurring so quickly, such a role can be most important, and utilises both of these planetary characteristics in a positive way. You have a sympathetic understanding of the past, and of the values and attitudes of conservative stability, yet also intuit and appreciate the necessity of change and evolving of social structures, organizations and individual development. You will try to integrate these threads, uniting what is worth retaining from the past with the ideas of the next step forward. Doing this, you work with both your intellect and intuitional faculties, and so reflect the next stage in human development towards the consciousness of unity. You are likely to prefer a form of expression that involves a social contribution over and above mere participation in society; you would like to feel that you have some influence in improving things, and that your preoccupation is not totally for personal gain. This need can often give you a sense of direction in your life, and one which can absorb both of these planetary energies. If you begin to feel that you are having to keep down inner pressures of certain kinds, perhaps through a lack of channels to release them into, then it is a likely sign that you are not fluently expressing both the energies. Look at your life pattern and see which one is being repressed. In most cases, this would be the Uranus energy, as the Saturn energy, which is one of order and discipline, is often expressed through social conditioning. To free this blocked energy, more spontaneity, more experimentation, and exploration of new interests, would help. These would stimulate needed changes to happen, and so break down any fixed lifestyle patterns that are becoming inhibiting. If the Saturn energy is repressed, more self-discipline, commitment and perseverance to achieving your objectives would help. If the lifestyle lacks control, too much freedom could also lead to a loss of personal centre and stability, leaving you feeling lost and unsure of what to do or in which direction to travel. You will need to draw through the Saturn qualities of boundary-making and structure, so that your life and inner nature begin to take distinct form again, creating a stable foundation from which to work. Uranus conjunct Neptune- This conjunction came within a nine degree orb in November 1988, was exact in February, August and October 1993, and stayed in orb until 1998; the last time before that was 1821-3. These children will have a strong degree of identification with the collective mind and group consciousness, which in some cases could revert back to fervent nationalist affinities in countries that have a powerful religious, racial, political and social structure. Yet in most cases it is unlikely that this will result in the emergence of charismatic demagogues as in recent examples of the manipulation of the masses. There will be a directing sense of social responsibility, and an awareness of participating in a social community, which will be expressed in positive ways for the betterment of all. The merged energies of this conjunction will inspire concepts of brotherhood, which will reflect the ideals of Uranus and Neptune, as a form of revolutionary mysticism emerging from an acute mental and emotional sensitivity connected to an intuitive imaginative faculty. Personal freedoms and rights will have a high priority, and there will be a new perception of 'leadership' being formed, which can dissolve those old patterns of a powerful leader and hundreds of following 'sheep'. There is a distrust of leaders, based on an intuitive perception of their real motivations and characteristics, which will also develop into a new understanding of authority and power in society. Those born under this aspects will be willing to 'fight' for the maintenance of personal freedoms and rights if they are under threat by the decisions of social leaders. A new balance of power between the people and the state will begin to form, and a new politics shoud rise into view, reflecting this increase in individual rights and power. Generally, this should be a period of spiritual and scientific development, where breakthroughs occur in the exploration of nature and mind. Changes that became inevitable by 1994 will have to be more fully achieved and realized by this new generation, imbued with a more conscious spirit of human unity and solidarity. Uranus trine Midheaven- Probably your beliefs and ideas are different from those of the people around you, and you put a different value on physical objects as well. You do not like to be tied to possessions that you must take care of. This means that eventually you will prefer to have as few possessions as possible so that you can go wherever you want without any worries. Very early in life, you will decide that you have to follow a path that is uniquely your own and does not follow anyone else's ideas about what is good for you. You want to break new ground, but in order to get there you won't have to battle others, especially your parents or other authority figures. You should be sufficiently creative so that you can make them see the desirability of letting you have your way to a reasonable extent. You may change your mind several times about what you want to do with your life, not so much because your mind is unstable but because it is so difficult to find exactly what you need. Incidentally, this can be a sign of an interest in or, later, a career in a technical field, such as electronics, computers, engineering or science. Or you may be interested in the occult and astrology. You like a certain amount of excitement in your life, to keep from getting bored. You prefer anything new to what is old, so you will not be particularly interested in keeping in touch with your childhood and your past once you are finished with it. You are future-oriented, always looking ahead to the next thing to come along. Neptune Sextile Pluto- The generations born after this aspect commenced, or those especially receptive to its influence, are aware of the basic tendencies emanating from it. They are life-enhancing: the need to protect the world's environment from senseless devastation; the need to extend individual rights and freedoms, to unfold international co-operation and to move beyond an embracing consumer materialist dominance in the West. The recognition that potentially a higher quality of life can be had in the world for the majority of people through a redirection of resources (if the will is there) can lead to radical change. The energies of transformation are present, and much depends upon our use of them, individually and collectively, for negative or positive results. The challenge of 'free will' is to make choices and decisions which determine, in the present, the nature of the future. Neptune Sesquiqudrate Midheaven- You have a sensitive awareness of the hidden factors affecting your career and ambitions, including the ability to intuit the responses of superiors. You exert leadership and can influence policy in such a subtle way that you avoid opposition. You're very impressed by all that's artistic and glamorous and have an appreciation of art and a love of ballet, film and/or theater. Sensitivity in domes-tic relationships creates close family rapport and harmony in the home. You may live near the ocean or some large body of water. Pluto conjunct ascendant- Born as the planet Pluto rose in the east, you are strongly identified with it and serve symbolically as its ambassador and representative of its vibration on earth. Thus you act as an agent of change, evolution, and personal transformation in your environment. Your sense of who you are is constantly undergoing such transformation as well, and your life is filled with drastic endings and sudden new beginnings. In this incarnation you are learning to master and control the emotions and the primitive drives within you that, left unconscious, control and direct human life. You are shining light into your depths to become more conscious of who you are as an individual. This is your hero's journey; you're alone in this process, and therefore have a great need for seclusion. Don't mistake your need for self-mastery and control for your obvious ability to control others. You are embarking on a new evolutionary cycle, and feel as if you have a special destiny to fulfill. You also feel that it's necessary to have the freedom and independence for any and all experiences that might enable you to discover and know something about yourself that you didn't know before. It could be waiting around any corner at any moment, and you must be free enough to have or to be had by the experience entirely. Since much of this process is instinctual, it is important to become conscious of obsessive behavior in this regard, as well as of projecting your anger and frustration upon those who appear to be restricting you. An inherent leader, you're intense, magnetic, strong willed, have a penetrating gaze and defy arbitrary authority. Although you have a very strong physical body, you project an obvious sense of vulnerability. You're hard to get to know deeply, and are passionate, insistent, and direct. One of Pluto's symbols is the legendary Phoenix bird, reborn once a century out of the flames of its funeral pyre. Your personality is under a similar, constant evolutionary pressure to die and be reborn. If this process is blocked or avoided, tremendous pressure is built up within you that must be released at all cost. Because of this and a tendency to compulsive and obsessive behavior, a non-analytic, emotionally or physically based psychotherapy can be an excellent release and form of growth for you. Once you learn to balance and integrate your own internal energies, you could make an excellent psychotherapist yourself if you were so inclined.

Part VI- Conclusion/comments After going doing this personal project over my free time this week, I have noticed a few things: 1.The Mercury/Venus/Moon in Gemini in me is a very powerful part of who I am. My mind has seemed to been moving violently fast this week. My investigation of self has been a liberating experience. It feels good to figure out who you are and be able to study the things that make up my persona. Venus wise, the Gem in Venus pretty much showed y commitment is hard for me to achieve on a personal level. I don’t like being tied down. I need to explore and let my mind expand, and sometimes, a commitment is the last thing I need when I need to be in my isolated mood. 2. My Rising sign and my Moon in Gemini to me are the strongest points in my chart. For all of my aspects, it seems that I find a wit(Gemini) and transformative (Scorpio) way of handling my issues. 3.For every hard aspect I had, I had another soft aspect that offset it and pretty much explained that with my strong awareness of self, I can overcome any obstacle or regression that life throws my way. I have to thank Pluto and Scorpio in my first and 12th house for that. 4.I need to take time like this to build myself up. I can’t explain the new found joy I have for who I am and seeing myself as being unique and nothing being wrong with being that way. 5.I heard a lot about MONEY, RELATIONSHIPS, INTUITION, MIND and PHILANTHROPY. My career in Finance and Law is the right path for me and I will be very fortunate in my career as long as I do what I need to do and work hard. My intuition (omg I love my intuition lol) is very powerful and I should listen to it when it comes to people’s motives and certain situations in business. And my life path is to help people through personal service and opportunities for others to succeed in life.[/QUOTE] All in all, I am who I am and Astrology has helped me to realize the power of understanding self and situations I have gone through in life. All I can do is thank A4U and Kwabena for inspiring me. A4U u know I can’t wait on people lol but if u would have continued to do it for me, I wouldn’t have had any “personal, emotional, mental and spiritual” connection with this process. I'm glad u showed me the light I’ve been looking for in the darkness the last 5 years of my life. Kwabena, I respect ur blunt nature cuz. That Sag in u finds ur own way. N I see u don’t relate well to others that do the same, like myself. But your fire SAG nature, which I have a lil bit of, made me do it. Plus, you CONSTANTLY saying “the answer is right in front of u, if u look for it.” Good look brah.
