PART ONE: THE INNER YOU
In Part One of the interpretations you will read two sections concerned with your individual traits.
The first section describes your ego (sun), emotional make-up (moon), learning and intellectual orientation (Mercury), relationships and sociability (Venus), and the expression and focus of your physical energy (Mars).
The second section describes how well you deal internally with the external situations that you experience in life. Your capacity for happiness (Jupiter), ability to tolerate restrictions and frustrations (Saturn), how you are associated with or relate to new or innovative ideas and methods, and radical ideas and events that upset the status quo (Uranus), how you are associated with or affected by public ideals, morality, and spirituality (Neptune), and how you are associated with or affected by public policies toward crime, toward the power of government and industry, and toward exploration, development, conservation and distribution of natural resources (Pluto).
The sun rules will power and ego. It is the core of your potential and uniqueness as an individual; who you are and what you are about. It represents the main direction and focus you want your life to take, and your determination to accomplish what you set out to do. It is your personal honesty and integrity, and the ability to command respect and authority, to impress and influence others.
SUN in SCORPIO
As the eighth sign of the zodiac, Scorpio represents the eighth stage in the evolution of man and his place in the universe. This stage is concerned with an emotional development that goes beyond Cancerian concern with home and family. Scorpio's emotional involvement is not based on love or pleasure, but on the control and understanding of human emotions and the role they play in the mysterious process of life and death. Though all Scorpios do not spend their lives pondering the mysteries of life and death, most of them are inquisitive, probing individuals. They are fascinated with how things work, especially people. Their mental and physical powers of recuperation are remarkable, and truly evolved Scorpios can learn to use their power to help and inspire others.
Scorpios are stubborn and impervious to changes not of their own making. However they accomplish many things in life because of their tenacity in sticking with projects when others lose patience and stamina. On the surface they may seem easy-going, congenial, and gregarious but they are also extremely tenacious with a tendency to manipulate and control. Keys to their success are a strong will and the ability to get to the bottom of things. They want answers and doggedly persist until they get them. Astrological symbols for Scorpio are the scorpion and the eagle. They representative the potency and range of the formidable power and control that Scorpios can develop.
Scorpios react emotionally to everything they experience in life. Before they take physical action, before they sort out the practicality of what they are doing, and before they reason things out intellectually, they express their feelings. Though their emotions are the strongest motivational factor in their behavior, unlike the emotionally oriented Cancerians and Pisceans, Scorpios are not apt to wear their hearts on their sleeves. They consciously or subconsciously want to dominate relationships and rarely exhibit emotions openly. Even when they seem to be open, they always hold back something of themselves. They may not intentionally want to be mysterious but many of them manage to appear enigmatic anyway. They do not like being crossed or manipulated, and react to such treatment with sarcasm and vengefulness.
Modern astrologers assign Pluto, planet of intensity and depth, as the ruler of Scorpio. Ancient astrologers (unaware of Pluto's existence) assigned Mars, planet of fire and energy, as the ruler of Scorpio. Both of these planets can be seen to influence the nature of those born in Scorpio. The focus and concentration of their expressions and personality makes them appear magnetic and powerful. The fiery energy of Mars that is exhibited when they are enthusiastic attracts and inspire others. Their intensity can be overwhelming but also subtle. Their considerable energy is not aroused or employed just to have something to do as is often the case with Aries, the other Mars-ruled personality. Unlike Aries, Scorpio is not openly combative unless it becomes necessary. Their privacy is tightly protected, and others get to know them only up to a certain point. They may not show any sign of inner struggle but when they are after something or someone their determination is fierce. Should they not be favored in the outcome, they are not willing or gracious losers. They are not arrogant and, in fact, are quite interested in others and what others have to say. However they often exhibit a self-sufficiency that implies there isn't much they don't already know.
Scorpios have a strong, competitive nature. With little effort they become exceptional athletes. They want real challenges and will not easily suffer would-be competitors who do not possess skills that are equal to their own. They enjoy sports that require strength, swiftness, and cunning. Body-building, soccer, hockey, hunting, swimming, scuba diving, and spelunking are favorite activities. Scorpio is associated with the mythical phoenix rising from the ashes. This symbol not only represents their own recuperative powers, it also represents their resourceful ability to create something new out of something old or useless. Recycling, and renovating homes and other buildings are typical projects for which they are well suited. Creative potentials include those who are outstanding cooks, writers, designers, and composers. Their shrewdness in assessing value makes them excellent real estate agents and developers, bankers, stockbrokers, and financial planners.
Scorpio colors are red, black, midnight blue, and emerald green. Vulnerable parts of the body are the reproductive organs and excretory system. Headaches, infections, and fevers are Scorpio complaints. Topaz is Scorpio's birthstone. The Roman naturalist, Pliny the Elder, traced the name to the Island of Topazos which, in Greek means "to guess. " This meaning is a fair description of the inquisitive, mystery-loving nature of Scorpio. Topaz, one of the hardest minerals, cannot be cut with a knife. It is yet another representation of the impenetrable Scorpio nature. Scorpio flowers include the anemone, heather, and gardenia.
The moon rules desire as opposed to ego, need as opposed to expediency or reason. It describes how you feel about yourself, how you handle relationships, and how you emotionally respond to situations and experiences. It describes the flow of your daily functions; physical, emotional, and mental. The moon represents your residence and domestic environment. It rules babies and young children, your mother and other important females in your life.
MOON in GEMINI
Those born with the moon in an Air sign usually respond to situations in a way they think should fit the facts, that is, they act in a way they think others expect them to act, or they imitate the same behavior as others. This gives them the appearance of emotional coolness or non-involvement. Before turning a situation into a physical experience, and before considering the stability or practicality of the thing, or even how they may really feel about it, they tend to do and say what seems appropriate as if it were not really happening to them. In spite of what appears to be their analytical detachment, most of them are loving and loyal in relationships. As lunar Air sign personalities, those with moon in Gemini can sometimes take their intellectual approach too far. Constant analyzing, rationalization, and acting as though they had already experienced something instead of just thinking or talking about it, can prevent them from ever doing it. They are talkative, mentally alert, and curious about everything. Always looking for some kind of intellectual stimulation, they get bored by repetitive tasks and the same environment day after day. Attracted by intrigue and idle gossip, they pay too much attention to what everyone else is doing. Restless and impatient, they do not always take time to get all the facts before repeating things. As eager to share information as they are to receive it, many of them are talented teachers, writers, and communicators of one sort or another.
Gemini moon personalities are emotionally adaptable. A dual-natured flexibility allows them to say or do one thing with apparent ease, even though what they really think and feel may be quite different. They instinctively understand what others want to hear and what to do to please them, but they don't always know how to make themselves happy. Though quite willing to discuss others, they can be secretive about themselves. Their outer personality may be bright and optimistic but they can harbor inner feelings of loneliness. Moon in Gemini personalities love secrets and solving puzzles. They have highly sensitive nervous systems and, in order to maintain proper physical and mental health, they need to be given varied tasks and opportunities for frequent change of scene or alterations in their daily routine.
Women with Gemini moon are talented with their hands. Though efficient and organized, a certain restlessness makes it difficult for them to remain content with household chores. Men with Gemini moon are quite charming but their temperaments are not particularly suited to sustained passion in themselves or tolerating emotional hysteria in others.
Mercury indicates mental outlook, intellectual endeavors, the way you think and communicate. It represents ideas, methods, and information. It rules your hands and thus your manual dexterity and mechanical skills. Mercury also describes transportation; that is, how you get where you're going physically and mentally. Do you speed with all possible haste or amble along taking a few detours here and there?
MERCURY in SAGITTARIUS
Those with natal Mercury in Sagittarius have enthusiastic, adaptable intellects. Their interests are varied and they quickly learn what they want to know. If they don't have a natural inclination for a subject, or even for school in general, it is difficult for them to stay very long in the confining routine of formal education. Many of these individuals possess considerable gifts for mimicry and oratory. Very independent in their ideas and opinions, they learn best by traveling and circulating in various groups and in different places. When communicating opinions and ideas, they have a tendency to be very direct, sometimes to the point of what others consider tactless. They may be very spiritually oriented, and have a great fondness for art or politics. When it comes to learning and transportation, they can be found rushing from place to place, but they are also capable of ambling along, taking every interesting detour that catches their fancy.
Venus rules your social attitudes and behavior, and your aesthetic tastes and inclinations. It is female relationships and social interactions at every level. Venus indicates your values. It describes romance, marriage and other partnerships, capacity for humor, and the pursuit of pleasure.
VENUS in SCORPIO
Social attitudes and behavior of individuals with natal Venus in Scorpio are strongly influenced by their emotional needs. They are not usually shy and, in fact, many of them are quite gregarious. How much attention they seek for themselves is determined by other factors. They have a strong, passionate nature that they must control if they wish to avoid being possessive, obsessive, or jealous. Even those who seem outwardly easy-going will consciously or subconsciously seek to control relationships. They are not ones to mince words or engage in idle flattery. Many of their interactions with others, even fleeting or superficial contacts, are apt to be tinged with a certain intensity. Social instincts can be remarkably keen, and their actions in this regard are direct and purposeful though not always obvious or open.
Mars rules physical energy and efforts. It describes the strength and direction of the physical force that drives your ego, fires your emotions, and encourages your mental endeavors and communicative skills. It describes male relationships and associations, risk-taking inclinations, and the physical challenges you are likely to encounter.
MARS in LEO
Mars in Leo individuals are likely to be very generous with their time and attention. Inclined toward grandiose gestures and improbable schemes, whatever they do is usually done in a big way. Sometimes their energy and enthusiasm are such inspirational forces they are actually able to accomplish some of the seemingly impossible things they set out to do. Strong determination is another important factor in their stunning accomplishments. If they allow stubborn pride to interfere, however, they can waste valuable time. Their efforts may be very creative, though they may need to be reminded of practical considerations and assisted by those more attentive to mundane details.
Jupiter rules your potential for growth and expansion on many levels; physical, intellectual, spiritual, cultural, and the accumulation of material assets, power, and status. It describes your optimism and aspirations. It represents your father and his position in society.
JUPITER in LIBRA
Individuals with Jupiter in Libra are often dependent for personal growth on the stimulation they derive from others, and the contacts they make by constant interactions with others. Working in partnership, joint ventures, and other cooperate efforts is the key to their success. Jupiter's influence in Libra indicates increased capacity to get along with, and favorably influence others. It also indicates an inspired sense of justice. The desire they have for growth is generally in an intellectual or aesthetic area. To attain what they seek, these individuals have to deal successfully with Jupiter's tendency for overabundance and LibraÕs need to strike a balance between excess and austerity.
Saturn rules responsibilities, restrictions and limitations you are apt to encounter, and the lessons you must learn in life. It does not deny or diminish imagination, inspiration, spirituality, and good fortune but it does demand that these things be given structure and meaning.
SATURN in CANCER
Individuals with Saturn in Cancer find their home or domestic life limited in some way. Family responsibilities may severely limit their own activities. They may be deprived of a home or family when young, or, as adults their efforts to establish their own home or family may be restricted. The nurturing they received or their own nurturing abilities may be limited. Relationships with women and young children are also liable to be inhibited. There is also the positive potential that their creative talents will be constructively developed and applied.
Uranus rules personal as well as societal freedom. It indicates originality of thought and expression. In society it rules radical ideas and people as well as revolutionary events that upset established structures. Uranus takes approximately seven years to transit one sign, taking about 84 years to complete all twelve signs. Since groups of people with Uranus in the same sign are separated by 84 years, the influence of this planet in a sign is generational. The personal implications of Uranus in your life are described by its house position and the aspects it makes with other planets in your natal chart. It describes areas of unpredictability, and where you or your life style may be different than those around you. It relates to the unusual or unique. Friends and associations to which you belong are also indicated, as is your potential involvement with science and technology, computers, and the media.
URANUS in GEMINI
The generation of individuals born with natal Uranus in Gemini want freedom of speech and communication. Research and development of innovative technology and methods of communication are eagerly undertaken. All new ideas get attention, and freedom of information is emphasized.
Neptune rules those who are oppressed or abandoned; the misfits of society. On a higher level it rules visionaries, and those who are glamorous and charismatic. It represents spirituality, mysticism, and ideals. Neptune is in one sign for approximately thirteen years, taking about 164 years to complete its cycle through all twelve signs. Since 164 years separate people born during its transit of one sign and those born when it returns, Neptune's significance in any sign is described as generational or historical. On a personal level, Neptune's house position and the aspects it makes with other planets in your natal chart will describe spirituality, abstract thinking, illusion, disillusionment, and other areas of your life where things aren't always what they seem. It rules derangement, guilt, persecution, and describes the potential for experiences related to confinement, abandonment, and addiction or physical intolerance to drugs.
NEPTUNE in LIBRA
During the most recent period of Neptune in Libra in 1942-1957 the establishment of the United Nations was typical of the Libran effort to establish peace. Neptune's influence is also evident since the U. N. has had minimal effect in accomplishing its goals. Equality (Libra) for minorities (Neptune) may get attention but real solutions may prove illusive.
Pluto takes approximately 248 years to make one cycle through all twelve signs. The period Pluto spends in each sign can vary from twelve years to thirty two years due to the eccentricity of its orbit. Like atomic energy (a force ruled by Pluto), the presence and direction of Pluto's energy are never obvious until it is used. PlutoÕs influence in any sign is interpreted as generational or historical. In your personal life, Pluto's significance is interpreted from its house position and the aspects it makes to other natal planets in your horoscope. Pluto rules intense energy, and describes the areas in which you consciously or subconsciously seek to exercise power or control. Pluto is also linked to your karmic responsibility, and in this respect, it describes the areas where you must gain the deepest level of understanding.
PLUTO in LEO
Pluto's last period in Leo was 1938-1957. Leo rules the king or representative government. During Pluto's transit of Leo in the late 1600's and early 1700's, John Locke, philosopher of the English Revolution and American Revolution, wrote his famous essays stating that governments existed by virtue of voluntary agreements and their function was to protect the rights of individuals.
PART TWO: THE OUTER YOU
In Part Two you will read about the twelve houses of the horoscope. The houses represent areas of life in which you operate on a daily basis. You will read descriptions of how you handle the circumstances you encounter in each of these areas, according to your nature, personality and other traits as they are outlined in Part One.
The first house and the sign that rules the first house, which is also known as the Ascendant or Rising sign, describes your outer personality and physical attributes. To some extent it also describes your health and the type of illnesses you may experience.
A Capricorn Ascendant indicates individuals with energetic, success-oriented personalities, and determination to satisfy their personal goals. The shrewdness and open ambition associated with the sun or moon in Capricorn does not always show up so overtly in the personality of those with Capricorn Ascendant but these traits are present nevertheless. Most of them are very capable managers and supervisors, willing to accept responsibilities and positions of authority.
They strongly identify with the material world and tangible assets. Unless other factors in their personalities or backgrounds interfere, they are not likely to adopt easy-going, "take me as I am" attitudes. They feel more comfortable with formality. They want to be aware of all the rules of social conduct and adapt their actions to fit these structures. Consciously or subconsciously they specifically choose the company of people who make them look good. It is not unusual for handsome Capricorn Rising males to select less attractive wives or, beautiful Capricorn Rising women to select less attractive female friends.
Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, planet of structure, restriction and longevity. It is often an indication of a difficult birth or restricted childhood. However, it doesn't matter what particular difficulties life presents to these individuals, their biggest challenge is always themselves. They are apt to be disappointed with some aspect of their personalities or appearance and may develop conflicting behavior to deal with these feelings when they surface. Some of these individuals practice strict self denial, while others abandon themselves to hedonistic pleasures as a form of self destruction. They may even exhibit both types of behavior. At every turn they confront fears and insecurity. How well they deal with the conflict marks their success as well adjusted adults. Capricorn ruling the first house raises the competitive spirit and by no means dictates the presence of a somber or colorless personality. On the contrary, it implies individuals who are apt to possess overcompensating cheerful personalities, and they willingly accept responsibilities and hardships which they are apt to feel they were born to endure. There is always a choice to be made, and the right one is never easy because it usually involves success which must be earned.
Capricorn Ascendant is usually indicative of abstemious eating habits which help these individuals avoid gaining too much weight. Sensitive skin, finely textured hair, brittle bones, and dental difficulties are apt to be their common physical complaints
The second house describes material assets, how you handle monetary income, and the potential ways it may be earned. It also indicates the values and priorities you establish throughout life.
AQUARIUS on 2nd HOUSE
Aquarius ruling the second house indicates individuals whose material assets, as well as priorities and value systems are vulnerable to sudden change. If they have little wealth this influence holds the promise of improvement in monetary circumstances. If, on the other hand, they have many material resources, this warns of the danger these assets may be suddenly lost. Their attitude toward spending can vary considerably from one time to the next. They might feel very conservative for a while and then suddenly rationalize why they should go ahead and spend money rather than save it. They are not likely to be dedicated to making money for its own sake. The personal freedom that accompanies wealth is more apt to be their main goal. It is hard to predict what values they will espouse, but they are probably not very traditional, or at least go against the present trend of societal thinking when it comes to money. Sticking to their priorities follows the same unpredictable course as trying to establishing what they are.
The third house describes your mental state, intellectual orientation, self-expression and communication, early education, mechanical dexterity and skills, immediate environment (neighborhood), and siblings. It indicates physical actions, and transportation, especially within your immediate environment. To a certain extent the third house also describes the job or health of your father.
PISCES on 3rd HOUSE
Pisces ruling the third house indicates those with developed intuitions and special interest in spiritual matters and occult subjects. They are apt to have high intelligence but also mental laziness, an unwillingness to explore areas of thought that appear to be too much work. A parent, in most cases the father, is apt to be employed in fishing or maritime industries, chemistry, photography, medicine (especially homeopathy, podiatry, or cosmetic surgery), psychology, areas involving feet which could mean working in a shoe store to being a dancer, or areas that involve minority groups, the disabled or institutionalized. He may suffer hypochondria, mental confusion, or hard to diagnose illness. Pisces ruling the third house may also mean individuals who are particularly sensitive even clairvoyant with siblings. There is also the possibility of loss of siblings, or siblings with drug dependencies. Illegal drugs may be used or sold by neighbors. There can be mental confusion, and it helps if these individuals spend a certain amount of time alone or in quiet environments, especially near the ocean. They like to use a pet name or alias, and (unless they develop a fear of water) enjoy travel by boat.
The fourth house describes your residence, domestic environment, and family members, especially your mother. It indicates the beginning as well as the end of various cycles in your life.
ARIES on 4th HOUSE
Aries ruling the fourth house indicates individuals whose energy and vitality are primarily linked to family or to some aspect of home or domestic life. This description can have a wide range of potential outcomes. It may indicate for instance, that their occupations involve real estate, interior design, architecture, or family counseling, or, that their business is operated in their homes. The Aries influence in the case of some of these individuals, may also mean fear of their parents or that one of their parents, most likely the mother, may be domineering. There is also the negative possibility of a volatile, sometimes violent domestic life. Fire is also a potential hazard. On the positive side, the Aries influence implies very active domestic lifestyles, and that their homes are likely to be designed or decorated with a distinctly masculine orientation. If given the opportunity, they will want to build their own homes. They may be the first ones to live in a particular area, perhaps as an unconscious reflection of the pioneering spirit associated with the Aries influence on their fourth house.
The fifth house describes your creative talent and imaginative powers, capacity for enjoyment and the pursuit of pleasure, romance, children, and speculative ventures.
TAURUS on 5th HOUSE
Taurus ruling the fifth house indicates individuals with potential for raising the pursuit of pleasure to a fine art. They are apt to have merry, sociable and generous natures, with the capacity to genuinely enjoy the physical pleasures life has to offer. They may be just plain lucky as well. They may, for example, be very obese but dress with such good taste they manage to look good anyway, or they are able to move gracefully despite their size. They are apt to have such wonderful manners and personal charm others don't notice or become offended if they happen to overindulge themselves. They may be the world's great lovers and their conquests don't seem to mind being only one in a long line of romantic partners. A fifth house Taurean influence indicates artistic creativity and many of them are talented stage or costume designers, musicians, artists, writers or illustrators. They are likely to have wonderful rapport with children, understanding what activities will amuse and entertain them. Negative potentials for Taurus on the fifth house include individuals with problems concerning children or romance, or who have bad luck in speculative ventures.
The sixth house describes your job, daily responsibilities (paid and unpaid), and those who work for or with you. It also represents your health, and physical fitness.
GEMINI on 6th HOUSE
Gemini ruling the sixth house indicates individuals who tend to keep very busy whether they have a job or work in the home. However, it doesn't mean they always accomplish their tasks. They can, for example, become involved with too many projects at one time and never quite get any of them finished. Or they may be preoccupied with unnecessary details or needless tasks they are convinced need doing. They enjoy work that involves a wide variety of tasks and frequent change of schedule or change of scene. The influence of Gemini also implies they may have more than one job at a time. It also suggests individuals who work as librarians, writers, researchers, teachers, trainers, physical fitness experts, or who work in communication, sales, or with computers. They may work or have interest in geography, geology, weather, stamp collecting, and travel. Whatever their job happens to be, they can usually be depended on to generate a lot of paperwork, reports, memos, and lists.
URANUS in 6th HOUSE
Uranus in the sixth house indicates those who seek a job that allows maximum personal freedom. The ideal situation is to work for themselves. If that isn't possible, the next best thing is to be able to select their own schedule, set their own deadline, and work at their own pace. It is difficult for them to sit still for long periods of time or be saddled with repetitive, uninteresting tasks. If the challenge of the job fades, they may either quit and go on to something else, or find ways to make their work more exciting. These individuals are apt to experience many changes of employment. Their job may unexpectedly or abruptly be terminated, but they are just as likely to leave on their own out of boredom and restlessness. They may be attracted to unusual lines of work. More traditional areas in which they are likely to be employed include medicine, computers, sales, social work, international finance, fund raising, electronics, or teaching. Though these individuals may be very healthy most of the time, the influence of Uranus implies that illness tends to occur suddenly or unexpectedly, and at highly inconvenient times. These individuals may adopt unorthodox or unusual methods to maintain their health and physical fitness.
MOON in 6th HOUSE
Moon in the sixth house indicates vulnerability to a continuing variety of medical complaints, especially stomach or digestive disorders. The ailments of these individuals are usually not major threats but can disrupt their work and routine schedules. They are apt to operate a business from their home, or seek jobs related to homes, food, family life, women, or children. They develop mothering instincts and other strong emotional identification toward those who work for or with them. They may work better with women than with men. Work habits may be inconsistent as is their ability to stay in jobs. Their general health and psychological outlook are strongly affected by their work, and when the work environment or responsibilities are upsetting for some reason, inefficiency and absences are the result.
MOON opposite MERCURY
Moon opposite Mercury indicates those who often find themselves in situations where their knowledge or skills are inadequate. Their first inclinations are to scramble to keep up, stall, or even misrepresent facts until they can find out what they need to know. They may be very organized but are always losing papers or missing details. Maturity and other factors in their personalities can reduce the worst influence of this aspect, especially since it does not imply lack of intelligence, which in many of these individuals is apt to be high. Nervous energy keeps them on the go, and their health can suffer from lack of proper rest.
The seventh house relates to marriage and partnership or joint ventures of any kind. It describes how you interact with people and how others tend to regard you. The seventh house is associated with legal matters, negotiations, contracts, and all open confrontations, pleasant as well as adversarial.
CANCER on 7th HOUSE
Cancer ruling the seventh house indicates those who are often the beneficiaries of valuable assistance. Whether or not they ask for it, they engender strong, protective or nurturing instincts in others. When these individuals achieve outstanding success, there is a good chance it was not without impressive help from others. They are vulnerable to the influence of others, and though there are usually some differences between the type of influence a seventh-house Cancer has on males as opposed to females, the influence can be interchangeable in one form or another. In a male's chart, it indicates he is likely to select a wife who strongly resembles or exhibits the characteristics of his mother. He may marry a woman that adopts a mother's role toward him as well as that of a wife. It is also possible he will marry someone younger than himself. A female with this Cancerian influence usually exhibits strong emotional identification with her husband. She will be dominated by marrying a man with a forceful nature, or indirectly dominated by his money or status. Even if the marriage fails, she may have difficulty finding psychological release from her relationship. The positive side of CancerÕs influence is the potential for close, loving relationships.
SATURN in 7th HOUSE
For those with Saturn in the seventh house, the biggest lessons in life involve relationships and how well they relate to other people in general. It is hard for them to establish quick or light-hearted contacts with others. Whether or not these individuals encourage it, others may regard them as an authority figure or at least very competent in some area. As a result, they either keep themselves in a constant state of turmoil trying to live up to what they think others expect of them, or they may totally avoid making commitments to others. They are apt to experience difficulty in getting others to cooperate. For them, marriage will not be without responsibilities. They may not succeed should they marry in haste, or their spouse may be sickly or a burden in some way. Other potentials include those for whom marriage is simply an easy path to security, those who marry someone much older, and those who develop such negative opinions about marriage that they avoid it altogether. In spite of these possibilities, Saturn does not doom the prospects for wedded bliss. Many of these individuals enjoy stable, long-lasting unions. If adversity does come along, it can make the alliance even stronger. Others may think these individuals have gained little or nothing by marriage. However, these individuals, as well as their spouses, may not share or be the least bit adversely influenced by such outside opinions.
MARS in 7th HOUSE
Mars in the seventh house indicates those who put much vitality and energy into relationships, marriage, business partnerships or joint ventures, and dealing with other people in general. They enthuse and encourage others to be sure, but they also rely on others to engender and constantly rekindle energy and vitality within themselves. Being cut off from the stimulation of interactions, or working alone can be detrimental to developing motivations they need to get things done. Marriage or business partnerships may not always be easy to establish. Their energy and activities may be sapped or overshadowed by an overly aggressive partner. They are apt to encounter or initiate many open confrontations. Negative factors in their personality or background can mean argumentative and even violent encounters, and loss of a partner through accident. These individuals may seek a career in law or contract negotiation, or marry someone who works in these areas.
MARS conjunct SATURN
Mars conjunct Saturn indicates a major conflict between what these individuals want to do and what they may be forced to do. In youth they are apt to have confrontations with authority, even though consciously or subconsciously they want order and structure in their lives. They are apt to hold in anger and frustration until it surfaces in unwise actions that cause accidents or other regrettable situations. On the positive side, these individuals have organization and a sense of structure and purpose. Administrative skills that many of them possess ultimately place them in important positions of authority.
The eighth house is related to taxes, debt, death, legacies, and the income you receive through marriage or business partner(s). It describes your resourcefulness, and your ability to develop and use material assets as well as personal skills and abilities. The eighth house also indicates sexual attitudes and behavior.
LEO on the 8th HOUSE
Leo ruling the eighth house indicates those who are well aware of their own worth as individuals and the worth of material assets. Their ego is directly linked to their sense of self-worth, and it becomes a viable, if sometimes hidden part of their strength as individuals. Many are shrewd manipulators of resources and assets, their own as well as others. They may be original and clever in finding ways to conserve and make use of resources. They may have little urge to promote what they do in a public manner, and may even fail to be recognized for their accomplishments until after their death. However, they do seek power to manipulate and control behind the scenes. They are apt to be guarded about their privacy, and may be purposely secretive. LeoÕs influence suggests the possibility of research and investigative talent as well as the ability to understand the psychology of human motivation.
PLUTO in 8th HOUSE
Pluto in the eighth house indicates those who possess formidable strength and endurance; a truly remarkable life force. However, Pluto in the eighth house also indicates those with a dark side to their nature, a side that can cause cynicism and despair. PlutoÕs influence in the eighth house implies a strong sexual appetite that often plays a major positive or negative role in their life. Sexual urges can be and often are sublimated into other activities, but however they choose to apply such energy, indifference to sex is unlikely to occur. The ability to concentrate their energy and attention helps these individuals develop remarkable investigative and research skills. They are resourceful and observant, with great interest in human motivations and behavior. Pluto's influence in the eighth house indicates secrecy and hidden control or manipulation related to sexual matters, legacies, debts, joint income and other resources.
The ninth house describes higher education, advanced training, publishing, publicity, advertising, politics, foreign travel, foreign studies, religious and philosophical views and activities, and cultural pursuits. It relates to court decisions, a second marriage, and in-laws. To a certain extent the ninth house also describes the job or health of your mother.
VIRGO on 9th HOUSE
Virgo ruling the ninth house indicates those concerned with higher education, philosophy, religion, art, and foreign cultures. It is also an indication of desire to travel to foreign countries, being educated or trained in a foreign country, and earning advanced degrees in more than one subject. Their mothers may be teachers, writers, or work with unions, the handicapped, sick, or minority groups. These individuals are apt to write, or work in publishing, advertising, sales, diplomacy, the judicial system, anthropology, travel, teaching, or politics. The negative potential includes the possibility of lacking the means with which to pursue advanced degrees, lack of ability or patience to pursue education, faulty memory, trouble with in-laws, and limited mechanical ability. It can also mean individuals guilty of sermonizing, demagoguery, or moral righteousness. There is however, sure to be a measure of intellectual curiosity, and even if they are prone more to gossip than study, they may still be clever enough to learn what they need or want to know.
NEPTUNE in 9th HOUSE
Neptune in the ninth house indicates those who are highly intelligent but also vulnerable to mental confusion, fanaticism or misplaced idealism. They may be totally organized and efficient in some things, while appallingly inattentive to facts and details in others. Depending on other factors in their personality and background, they may be a dangerous master of the art of deception or a highly successful promoter. They are apt to have interest in religion and spiritualism. Neptune's negative influence includes the possibility of disillusionment, deception, or illegal activities in a foreign country or involving foreigners. On the positive side, NeptuneÕs influence can mean that their experiences with those of another race or culture may be highly inspirational or spiritual. Neptune in the ninth house implies work or interest in publishing (especially of occult or religious writing) or counseling. These individuals are also compassionate judges and sensitive teachers. A ninth house Neptune suggests a parent (mother) or a sibling's spouse may suffer from disabilities, drugs or alcohol, or they may be employed in a job that involves maritime industry, religion, photography, medicine, psychology, footwear, or those who are institutionalized, disabled, or minorities. Relations with in-laws, a second marriage, and court decisions can become confused or undermined by deception, misunderstandings, or other influences.
JUPITER in 9th HOUSE
Jupiter in the ninth house indicates those with intellectual curiosity, independent attitudes, idealism, and quickness of mind. They have great respect for knowledge, but there is no guarantee these individuals will be motivated to pursue higher education. It does suggest however, that they have a nose for news as well as gossip. Avid readers of newspapers and magazines, they are usually very well informed concerning political and social issues. There is potential talent for languages, diplomacy, or arbitration. They enjoy traveling, cultural pursuits, gambling, sports and other activities that offer intellectual and physical challenge. They have a strong religious or spiritual nature, a wonderful sense of humor, and a gift for story telling. Negative factors in their personality or background can mean mental laziness, disorganization, dishonesty, and a strong flair for exaggeration and overestimation.
JUPITER trine URANUS
Jupiter trine Uranus implies a generation that is fortunately affected in the sense that societal conditions afford them technology to make life easier. There may be a new order of thinking that destroys societal prejudice and various other institutional structures that might in the past have hindered their progress as member of a generation and consequently as individuals.
The tenth house describes your career and other long-range goals, public reputation, superiors and those in authority. It also relates to your father and his influence in your life.
LIBRA on 10th HOUSE
Libra ruling the tenth house indicates individuals who attract attention because of their physical appearance, artistic talent, position in society, or simply because they enjoy being in the spotlight. The influence of Libra on the tenth house is an indication of the need for these individuals to strike a balance between home and family and their careers or long range goals. Their destiny is to have both of those directions satisfied and equally represented in order to achieve true happiness and success. It doesn't mean they have to have a career but in addition to family responsibilities, they must establish (and achieve) personal goals that help them realize their potential as individuals. The reverse is also true, their careers or personal goals must not be accomplished at the expense of family relationships. The negative potential can mean difficult and antisocial relationships with parents (most likely the father) as well as with supervisors or other authority figures in general.
VENUS in 10th HOUSE
Venus in the tenth house indicates those who tend to get noticed because of their talent, looks, charming personality, or all three of these assets. Unless factors in their background have resulted in the development of shyness or other inhibitions, they derive a great deal of pleasure from performing in public. They are excellent ad libers, impromptu speechifiers and toastmasters. Negative potential includes those who become an over dramatic, non-appeasable seeker of the spotlight who selfishly uses relationships to further their own career or goals. It can also mean difficult relationships with family and authority figures. The positive influence of Venus suggests great popularity and friends in prominent positions. The father may be especially handsome or possess artistic talent.
VENUS square PLUTO
The implication of Venus square Pluto is that these individuals will pay a price for their relationships. No matter how easy or exciting relationships start out, they invariably come to include manipulation and power plays. If these individuals fail to cooperate with the manipulations of others or they seek to gain too much control themselves, the only alternative may be utter loneliness. Much, however, will be gained if they learn to minimize their own need for control and tactfully sidestep others who try to exert control.
The eleventh house rules friendships, organizations to which you belong, and income derived from self-employment or career (as opposed to wages earned from a job). It relates to the role you play in the lives of others as child, parent, lover, spouse, friend, social or business associate. The eleventh house also describes your hopes and aspirations and capacity for happiness.
SCORPIO on 11th HOUSE
Scorpio ruling the eleventh house indicates individuals who are likely to find that one of their central themes in life is a constant analysis and re-analysis of exactly what makes them happy. To accommodate what may be intense desire to find true happiness, they may attempt completely new beginnings by making new friends in a new environment, or establish friendships solely to improve their social status or to gain some other material advantage. ScorpioÕs influence indicates potential for these individuals to regard their friends and memberships in certain organizations as valuable personal resources that give them a more powerful personal image. Another strong possibility that occurs under Scorpio's influence, especially in those with more aggressive personalities, is the conscious or subconscious need to manipulate and control organizations to which they belong, as well as their friendships. Those with rather shy or more vulnerable natures may be the victims, and it is they who are manipulated or taken advantage of. Whether by choice or circumstance there is secrecy or mystery connected with friendships and/or organizations to which they belong.
SUN in 11th HOUSE
Sun in the eleventh house indicates those whose personal identification in life is tied to friendships, social contacts, children for whom they are responsible, and organizations to which they belong. They may be excellent managers of organizations but inattentive in handling their personal affairs. Business acumen can bring wealth and status but they may prefer to remain in humble or temporary surroundings that do not require attention or care. Wide-ranging goals supersede their desire to be confined by too many material possessions. However, they can never have too many friends or amusements. Their ego is thrust outward into society, which means their activities and talents must be expressed in that direction. They are natural promoters and fund raisers.
SUN trine MARS
Sun trine Mars indicates individuals with assertiveness and self confidence, even when it is not justified which can lead to some rash behavior as well as great courage. The energy with which they approach things may not take into account the facts, but their physical energy is apt to be so well integrated into their ego drives, they are sure they are on the right track. Overriding any mistakes they just keep going until success is won. The fruits of their actions are usually successful, though they may tend to take too much for granted.
SUN trine SATURN
Sun trine Saturn indicates individuals with a certain type of luck. There is no lucky throw of the dice they can count on, it is usually luck they make for themselves. They may not win at horse races, but they will always come out ahead in situations where they have worked hard and for which they have prepared well. Their own actions or other people impressed with their past prudence and hard work provide any additional help they need to get ahead.
The twelfth house describes the private and hidden side of life; your subconscious mind, dreams, the past, and those who wish you harm or work against your interests. The twelfth house relates to sorrow, disappointment, loss, solitude or confinement, hidden fears and worry. It also has connection with the job or health of your marriage or business partner.
SAGITTARIUS on 12th HOUSE
Sagittarius ruling the twelfth house indicates those with a remarkable inability to worry. It isn't that they don't worry at all, but they seem to have a sixth sense that everything will turn out for the best. In fact in some cases, they may never even get that far; they just go ahead and take a chance on situations others would never dare attempt. Sagittarius is expansive thinking and the twelfth house does not present a clear sense of reality. This can mean individuals who are never quite certain of their own limitations, and what is possible and what is not possible. Sagittarius indicates help from unknown or unexpected sources, though it also implies they may receive help through their marriage partners. They are apt to be interested in studying occult subjects and subconscious levels of existence, and many of these individuals have highly developed instincts or intuition. There is also the potential for great spirituality. On a mundane level it can mean a special fondness for gambling, horses, the theater, art, and dancing.
MERCURY in 12th HOUSE
Mercury in the twelfth house indicates those who tend to keep many of their ideas and thoughts to themselves. It also implies they are able to think better when they are alone or in quiet environments. They are apt to be interested in studying dreams, the subconscious, and ESP. Their thinking may not be in the least bit faulty but it is often likely to be based as much on instinct or intuition as it is on logic or reasoning. Sometimes this type of thinking works, and sometimes they need to get a clearer sense of reality. If there are negative factors in their personality or background, it can mean depression and becoming a prisoner of their own mind. Mercury's positive potential includes a photographic memory, fabulous imagination, remarkable investigative skills, and the ability to become a master of disguise. Their work may involve something normally hidden or out of sight to others. It may also involve writing, computers, and communications, especially in areas related to hospitals, prisons, or charitable institutions. Mercury's influence in the twelfth house also includes secret activities or dealing with secret communications, ciphers or other forms of code.
MERCURY sextile JUPITER
Mercury sextile Jupiter indicates those who find or are given many opportunities to demonstrate their intellectual, communicative or artistic skills. Most of these opportunities should be viewed as chances to acquire knowledge or an education or to further develop their talents and skills rather than ways to gain immediate monetary success, public recognition, or other tangible benefits.
MERCURY opposite URANUS
Mercury opposite Uranus indicates those apt to possess remarkable intelligence and perception. Their trouble is often a matter of avoiding mental confusion, otherwise it is impossible to coordinate and clearly communicate their thoughts and ideas. Easily distracted they find it difficult to relax. Their physical movements are apt to be quite jerky and often result in bumping into things.
