Introduction


I. CHILD*STAR!!

How wondrous is the moment when you first look into the eyes of your newborn child! How miraculous is creation! What deep mysteries bring families together for a cycle of time!

In writing Child*Star, the author, a Montessori teacher, has brought you the best of 23 years of astrological study in addition to the fruit of 10 years' experience in the classroom. You'll find in Child*Star a first-hand understanding of the trials and joys of parenthood.

Being a parent is challenging. A job description for a parent would include something of almost every other job. When we study the child's astrological chart, we can instantly attune to how we can best guide him. Strengths, weaknesses, aptitude and potentials jump off the page. We can see how to turn around negative momentum and maximize talents that otherwise may not have been readily apparent. Understanding leads to greater patience, a virtue of immeasurable worth in child-rearing!

Many parents intuitively take a reading at the moment of birth and even before through dreams or visions, and receive a prescient knowing of the child soon to be born. The child comes to us with his own birth chart, his particular life plan, which many believe is determined prior to birth.

Nevertheless, there can be no doubt that environmental factors, decisions made by parents, education, and free will can change, alter, or mitigate the prophecy foreseen in the chart for better or for worse. A seed containing the blueprint of the most magnificent rose will not flower if denied sunshine, water, and good soil. And many have cultivated beautiful flowers in rocky soils through love and care.

How can we challenge the child to bring out the positive Sun sign potential, but, at the same time, teach him to know clearly when he crosses the line into negatives that could cause him much grief and sorrow later, if not corrected now? This is the challenge before us as educators and parents to our children, even to the child within ourselves. So we search the chart with an eye for potential problem areas that could disrupt, hinder or block the child's best expression. We devise how to turn them around. We take note of the positive potential and see how, like a good seed, it can be nurtured to bring forth the ripest fruit on time.

 

II.  In creating this report, certain assumptions have been made:

1. Every child is unique. While most concepts will hit the nail on the head, not all you read will necessarily "fit."

Throughout the report, you'll come across words and phrases like "tends to," "often will," "probably," "might." This is because there is a spectrum of possibility on any given point. At times, these phrases have been omitted, but the concept remains true throughout the report.

2. It is assumed that you are concerned and loving parents who are dedicated to helping your child realize his highest potential.

3. It is assumed that you're willing to look at yourself (as you may find Mom and Dad depicted in the pages of this report) and see where greater self-awareness and self-improvement can help you better raise your child.

4. It is assumed that you're using this report as a key to better understand your child, and as a key to unlock his potential, but that at no time will you use this report (and its recommendations) to replace common sense and your own good judgment. You are his parents, no one can know him as you do. Remember:

Astrology is meant to CONFIRM, NOT REPLACE, the inner guide!

5. To get the most value out of Child*Star, the author recommends holding "all these things in your heart" and observing the child as he grows. Maria Montessori proved that, by observing the child, you discover the laws of his being. The chart unfolds as she grows.

However, the report may highlight potential talent and skill you may wish to test out by providing your child with opportunities to develop them. For instance, if an aspect (and especially if several aspects) indicates musical talent, you may want to sign your child up for song and dance lessons or teach him how to play a musical instrument.

If playing an instrument doesn't seem to be his forte, try music appreciation. Remember, there's a spectrum of possibility, and it's up to you to discover what motivates your child.

In reading about your child, emphasize the positive. Negative patterns can be changed; indeed, sometimes only a shade of gray separates our Achilles' Heel from becoming our most valuable asset. Conversely, our natural talents can stagnate and, if we fail to develop them, become the open door to self-indulgence.

 

III. Keywords and concepts that will help you get the most out of Child*Star:

1. Throughout the report, reference is made to planets receiving harmonious or challenging aspects. In astrology, trines and sextiles are considered aspects that indicate energy flowing in harmony. Squares point to challenges, blocks, internal frustrations and also pronounced talents. Oppositions indicate potential conflicts we resolve in the Tai-Chi of our interactions with others. We call squares and oppositions "dynamic aspects." Here is where your child may meet her greatest challenges, but also where he may demonstrate his greatest strengths! In expressing and mastering the dynamic aspects, we grow and can realize our greatest achievements. Remember:

Wherever you find dynamic aspects is where your child may need the most guidance, consistency, and patience on your part.

2. CROSS-REFERENCES:  To gather a more complete picture on any given aspect of your child's chart, you may be referred to another related section. For example, every sign is said to be ruled by a particular planet. Aries is ruled by Mars, and the child with Aries Rising is learning how to direct energy constructively. But how will he do it? The report may refer you to another section on Mars.

Another type of cross-reference is necessary when a planet receives more than one kind of aspect. For example, a child with Mars square Saturn can feel blocked, and Child*Star instructs you to see if Mars and Saturn receive positive aspects from other planets-which will mitigate the difficulty and allow the aspect to manifest in a more dynamic and purposeful way. The positive aspects can also indicate to you how to work out the difficulty successfully.

3. RESOLVING CONTRADICTIONS: What to do when you come across information that is contradictory? None of us is black and white. For example, a child might be extroverted in sports, but shy in academics, or vice-versa. Some children, however, will need help in working out such structural conflicts.

4. Sometimes we come across strengths or talents in the child that may not be our forte. A child with a grand trine in earth signs, but whose parents have little or no earth emphasis in their own charts, may need other, more practical and businesslike people coming into his life to bring out the inherent qualities of efficiency, order, and organization typical of this positive configuration.

5. Astrological knowledge must never be used to demean, criticize, or put anyone down. Take note of areas of great sensitivity, vulnerability, or pain in the child's chart. Find ways to help him master these. Be kind to your child. His star has appeared and it may be different in magnitude and brilliance than your own! Love him and teach him, and learn from her, but don't expect her to be who you are. While the child is still in the process of turning her weaknesses into strengths, we can often fill in the gap!

 

IV. CONCLUSION:  In studying the child's chart-as a representation of the book of his life with many pages left to write on-we seek to understand him better in order to guide, help, and instruct him in bringing out his special uniqueness, his calling in life, his special star. In understanding our children, we also come to better understand ourselves, our own inner child.

This report is intended as a stepping stone in your astrological journey-a fascinating adventure. For those who hold newborns, Child*Star will offer many insights that will prove their worth for years to come. For those of you with older children, this report will shed much light that will help you better understand your child and where he is headed. Some will walk through their childhood again through the pages of this report-finding, healing, and attuning with the child within.

On the next page you will find a list of the zodiac positions of your child's natal planets, along with the house cusps, for his moment of birth. These have been calculated using sophisticated astronomical formulae to ensure high accuracy.

The author, Kathie Garcia, is interested in your feedback. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to give her a call or write her a note. She can be reached at PO Box 81, Emigrant, MT, 59027. Her telephone number is (406) 333-4757.



The Rising Sign

First let's take a quick look at your child's Ascendant, or Rising sign. Astrologers want to know what zodiac sign is rising at birth, since this gives a picture of the way we appear or come across to others. We look out upon the world through the glasses of the Rising Sign. Your child's Rising Sign will offer clues as to how your child perceives himself or would like others to see him. Many astrologers consider the Rising Sign as important as the Sun Sign in describing identity. This makes sense, since the Ascendant describes the early childhood experience. From myriad impressions and interactions, the child will weave the tapestry of his unique selfhood. If the Rising Sign is very different from the Sun sign, the child may have to work at integrating diverse aspects of his personality.

Lively Leo wears his heart on his sleeve, always managing to come across as confident and sure of himself. (Sometime when the Leo Lion is wounded, his bravado is a dramatic cover-up!) Leo children are typically very free with their emotions which nevertheless tend to stay under control. Your Leo child is affectionate, warm-hearted and effusive. Liking center stage, he may want all the attention on himself! Teach him to be thoughtful. The Sun rules Leo. If your child's Sun is in a Fire sign, leadership potential is enhanced, but he probably needs to learn to "harness the fire" as well as to consider the needs of others. If his Sun is in an Air sign, he is apt to be quite sociable, optimistic and positive. He is probably friendly and communicative. The child with a water sign Sun with Leo rising could be temperamental; he needs a good sense of self-esteem. He could feel hurt easily. An earth sign Sun could be the signature of a banker! His bravado is likely to applied in practical works (later in work).

Planet Aspects

The Sun and Moon

At the time of our birth, the planets (through their configurations and relationships) tell us something about the quality of the moment of time into which we were born. Each planet points to special traits within us. Yet, of all the planets, the two most important planets to astrologers are the "lights," the Sun and the Moon. From where we stand here on Earth, the great shining Sun by day and the reflecting Moon at night are our constant companions. The Sun and Moon are our greatest guides in understanding our children, their temperament, personality, relationship with parents and other significant adults, their sense of purpose, their feelings and much more! The Sun and Moon give us clues as to where our children are headed and how we can help them on the way.

The Sun: Identity, Ego, Will, Father

The Sun represents our identity, or self and as such, colors every other aspect of the chart. In a child's chart, the Sun will reveal much about his emerging personality. Your child's greatest strengths and challenges are often described by the qualities of his Sun Sign. A Leo child, for example, is a born leader but may be pompous. A Piscean youngster may draw upon a rich imagination to inspire others, but may seek to escape reality by retreating into a fantasy world. The wise parent will train the child to manifest the positive qualities of his Sun Sign. The position of the Sun also helps us understand what motivates our children. A child with a Fire sign Sun such as Aries, will generally be motivated by seeking new experiences in which he can assert himself, whereas a Water sign Sun child is more emotional and will seek comfort and security before venturing out. Children born into Earth signs tend to be grounded. They're builders and seek means of practical expression. They want to know, "How does it work?" Air sign Sun children can experience life through thoughts and thrive on social interaction and communication. The Sun also represents the child's perception of the father (or dominant parent) and the qualities the child identifies with within the father. From here, we extend our understanding of this relationship to authorities and adults in general and later, to the child's understanding of his own life purpose. For example, a child with the Sun in harmonious aspect to Mars would likely feel supported by the father and therefore more prone to self confidence than a child born with the Sun square Mars. The latter might feel blocked on some level by the father or dominant parent. Both, however, are dynamic positions indicating leadership potential.

Sun in Gemini
Gemini is an Air sign on the thinking cross. Its symbol is The Twins. Geminis are here, there and everywhere and come up with a thousand questions! (Record his questions in a little book and then research the answers together.) Your little Gemini was born to investigate, search, and explore. He likely seeks to communicate by all available means: talking, writing, broadcasting, learning foreign languages. Phones and walky-talkies make a big hit! Some Gemini children are chatterboxes. Others are exceptionally witty. Teach your Gemini to be still and to listen to what others have to say.

All manner of transportation may catch his attention; scooters, bicycles, skates, whatever, anything in which to get around! Gemini children can be into many projects at once! A skill essential to your little Gemini's future success is the ability to focus and complete the task at hand. As your Gemini grows, you might find ways, such as making lists, to help him order his mind and his tasks. He needs this training to develop good study habits and avoid dissipating his energy.

Gemini children are born mimics. They need good role models. Discernment is advised in the selection of books and movies, since little Gemini will copy (often verbatim) what he sees and hears. Sometimes the Gemini ability to pick up quickly amounts to a high degree of impressionability.

A good book is like a treasured friend to children of this double air (mind) sign. Stack up your library! The Gemini child is often the teacher's pet because he loves to read and enjoys learning a broad range of subjects. Gemini children typically like learning at a fairly brisk pace. Gemini rules writing and journalism. Your child might benefit by keeping a diary. Later he may be interested in working on the school paper. Working with his hands could steady his restless mind. (Sewing, painting, building with legos, washing the dishes, planting) Gemini children seek variety in everything; clothes, food, books and in everyday experience. Some have trouble staying still! Teach your child to concentrate.

Sun Square Jupiter
Your child is likely to be enthusiastic and "Sunny." He could be generous, friendly and cheerful. He might have a fair share of bravado and self-confidence. He could also radiate much energy and could probably benefit by plenty of exercise and outdoor play. Nevertheless, until he resolves this aspect, your child may display a tendency, or perhaps a knack, for ignoring good advice. More than once, he may find himself at odds with the correct, or prescribed way of doing things. This could manifest in a problem with authority figures. For example, he may tend to resent or resist the suggestions of his elders, perhaps his father. The father, however, for better or for worse, often sets the pattern influencing the child's behavior.

Your child could be generous but may tend to go overboard, be extravagant, take on too much too soon. Be patient in teaching your child common sense and economy. Teach him to accept responsibility, tackle one job at a time and to finish what he begins. (Positive Saturn aspects might provide the key for helping your child develop self-discipline.)

Sun Opposition Uranus
Sun/Uranus aspects often indicate leadership potential. Your child may be very magnetic, others being drawn to him. He is not afraid to be different, and may indeed be a "trendsetter." Later in life he is likely to be interested in some kind of social or political reform. However, the child with the this aspect may be somewhat of a rebel, with a history of flaunting convention and going against authority. He may feel different than his schoolmates. He could separate himself out and end up as the loner, although this is not necessarily what he inwardly desires. Your child could be very bright with exceptional talent. To be happy, however, he needs to learn to cooperate with others. Be patient in seeing him through those unexciting but necessary routines which are simply part of life. His ideas may be brilliant, but help him learn to test them for practical value as well. Sometimes, Sun/Uranus aspects describe the father as being radical, eccentric, highly individualistic or somehow unusual. Note: if Saturn is well aspected, your child is more apt to have his feet on the ground!

The Moon: Emotions, Habits, Family, Mother

In a child's chart, we look to the position of the Moon to understand the child's perception of his mother, of his need to be cared for and to nurture. The Moon also describes the child's experience within his family, with its particular dynamics, tradition and heritage. From these, the child establishes his roots. The Moon, then, indicates the early childhood environment, our early support systems. Emotional responses are traced to the Moon and hence, to patterns established during childhood (and even during other lifetimes). These often become automatic and subconscious in the adult. Thus, the sign placement of the Moon reveals much about our child's emotional needs and expressions. The Moon may dominate the child's chart during the first 7 years of life. The Moon will tell us what the child needs to feel secure and also what kinds of habits would be helpful or detrimental to his development. For example, a child with a Sagittarian Moon is happy when he has plenty of room to explore. (But he needs to learn the value of limits) A Cancer Moon child, in contrast, may cling to Mom's apron strings. (But he may need to overcome fear of making it on his on).

Moon in Virgo
Virgo is an Earth sign on the thinking cross. Its symbol is The Virgin. One of the most important things you can do for your child is to help him develop good self-esteem. Virgo energy seeks perfection, and the Moon in Virgo child can be awkwardly aware of his perceived shortcomings. Tire not in pointing out the good in him and in his work. Teach him that we learn by our mistakes and what really counts is doing our best! Perfectionism carried to an extreme can result in failure (why try, its not good enough!) your child is likely concerned and caring when it comes to the welfare of others and would enjoy the responsibility of helping to care for a pet or younger sibling. He is attentive, observant, careful, and above all responsible. He loves to serve, although others could feel scrutinized or "picked apart" by his insistence on perfection! He is particularly vulnerable to criticism.

Virgo is the sign of the Earth Mother and some children with this placement enjoy working with cloth; sewing, knitting, and embroidery. Herbs and botanical studies may one day lead to a career in healing arts. Moon in Virgo youngsters often have a strong sense of justice. If your child reacts to a discipline or situations with a complaining "it's not fair!", you would do well to point out the opportunity to grow inherent in every situation.

The Maiden is modest and concerned with cleanliness. Sometimes, however, we see this natural modesty carried out to a fault of fastidiousness or at the other end of the spectrum, extreme sloppiness. Proper care of the physical body and good hygiene is essential with this placement!

The Moon in Virgo child may perceive the mother as hard working, a natural teacher, self-reliant. If afflicted, and especially if the mother tends to be critical, nagging or complaining, the child could feel his best is never good enough.

Moon Square Saturn
Children born with the Moon square or opposite Saturn may have to grapple with trying conditions at home: apart from circumstances, the parents could be excessively strict, severe, rigid or emotionally distant. These attitudes inhibit the spontaneous flow of emotions in the child. In households where this is not the case, the child is nevertheless apt to perceive it as so. He needs an extra dose of affection, particularly from his mother! He needs to know he is worthy of being loved. Teach him to see what is good about himself and others. Remind him that when we smile the world smiles with us, but when we cry we often cry alone!

Moon Trine Neptune
Children born with this aspect may be enchanting, with a dreamy look about them. They often have artistic and/or musical talent. They are highly impressionable and tend to pick up on other people's vibrations. Children with the Moon aspecting Neptune need to learn to be discriminating in their choice of companions. Your child may be very kind, but gullible and easily duped (and therefore disappointed.) The line between fantasy and fact may not be apparent. The child could adore the mother, or be confused by her. The mother may help the child develop his creativity productively.

Moon Sextile Pluto
The Moon aspecting Pluto is an extremely powerful aspect that can indicate a dynamo of creative potential, or tremendous destructive force. Your child is apt to be courageous. He is willing to try harder to improve himself or his work. This child needs a strong bonding to the mother. Nevertheless, the child with Moon/Pluto contacts may feel overwhelmed or overpowered by her. This aspect gives a Scorpio coloring to the Moon and indicates the need for trust and communication in the mother-child relationship. The child feels intensely but is not apt to reveal his feelings without prompting. He may be dauntless, but willful; intuitive, but secretive; insightful, but manipulative. Establish the law and maintain it consistently, never in anger but in love.

The Inner Planets: Mercury and Venus

The planets Mercury and Venus, along with the Sun, Moon and Mars describe the child's emerging personality. These inner planets are located between the orbit of the Earth and the Sun. Venus indicates how the child appreciates and measures his experience, and describes the values established during childhood. Venus tells us how the child expresses love, the things that mean a lot to him, and his appreciation for beauty (or lack of it). Mercury tells us something about our child's perception, verbal expression, schooling – in short, how his mind works, how he thinks and communicates.

Mercury: The Mind and Communication

Mercury represents thoughts, ideas, and the mental process in general. Communications – by phone, letter, spoken, or however – are ruled by Mercury. Also thoughts, connections, phone wires, and everything that connects and conveys – even forms of transportation. In the child's chart, Mercury describes the myriad aspects of schooling – teachers, study habits, homework, learning skills, concentration (or lack of it). Your child's relationship with brothers and sisters are indicated by Mercury as well. The way your child thinks, receives, shares and transmits information and knowledge will be revealed by studying the position of Mercury in his chart. Mercury relates to hands, fine motor abilities, and to handwriting and drafting skills. Mercury by sign and element tells us how the child studies and what he likes to study, and how we (his parents and teachers) can help him gain greater academic expertise. Children with Mercury in Fire signs think and talk simultaneously and are spontaneous. They enjoy games that make learning fun! Children with Mercury in Air Signs can chatter away and still keep going! Words can come alive for them and they enjoy listening to (or creating) colorful tales and stories. Communication is their thing. They may have to work at being listeners, however! Children with Mercury in Water signs may need help thinking clearly since emotion runs into thoughts. These children like profound subject matter. Children with Mercury in Earth signs generally have a good measure of common sense. Hands on training suits them best.

Mercury in Cancer
Cancer is a Water sign on the action cross. The Mercury in Cancer child senses things with the mind and understands that feelings are thoughts too. What does this or that thought mean? Where is it pointing? These are questions he may ask himself. Your child tends to use subjective rather than objective logic – intuition and gut instinct. Poetry, music, and the arts interest him, as does psychology. This placement usually indicates a good memory. Emotions could cloud objective thinking.

Mercury Trine Jupiter
This aspect often indicates a problem-solver, someone who can think of a way to do almost anything (or think his way out of almost anything)! Children with this aspect have a reputation among their peers of being fair and honest. Typically, they enjoy learning and are confident of their mental abilities. Your child is apt to enjoy traveling and seeks new experiences to broaden his horizons. This aspect indicates an ability to persuade others, and therefore favors politics, counseling and ministerial type work. As an adult, your child may find himself interested in legal matters, publishing, philosophical and religious subjects, and would make a good teacher or instructor. Scientific investigation might interest him also.

Venus: Values, Love, Art

Venus rules our values and sense of appreciation. When we appraise or appreciate something, whether that be another person or a new car, this is Venus – the sense of love and compassion we may feel. Venus in the child's chart shows us what kinds of things our child appreciates, his innate sense of beauty (which can be developed), the manner in which he interacts with his friends and with adults, and how he shows love. Children with Venus in ardent Leo, for example, are demonstrative and fun-loving. They tend to shine and love bright, colorful things. Venus in Scorpio children, on the other hand, may be shy but exceptionally kind and thoughtful. These children may want Mom all to themselves! The Venus in Libra child is a social butterfly and loves beauty in his clothes and bedroom. Venus in Taurus loves beautiful things, pretty rocks and later precious stones. He may be a gourmet. He may need help learning to share what he sees as prized possessions. A study of Venus by sign, house and aspect also reveals something about your child's taste in food, eating habits, care of possessions and attitude toward money and belongings.

Venus in Cancer
Cancer is a Water sign on the action cross. Its symbol is The Crab. Homeward bound! With your child, the domestic scene is his nest! Children with Venus in Cancer like to feel secure. Your child is apt to be sensitive. He could be gracious and charming as well. The Venus in Cancer child likes demonstrative affection, but be careful not to smother or overindulge your child. If he receives plenty of love and support (and encouragement to be independent) as a youngster, he could later seek to nuture others. He loves music, and may have musical talent. Your child is sensitive and could be very emotional, even clingy. Teach him to let go of Mama's apron strings! He loves to cook as well! Many restaurant owners and chefs have Venus in Cancer!

Venus Opposition Mars
This challenging aspect indicates potential conflict in relationships. The child needs to learn to cooperate and get along harmoniously with others. The negative manifestation could range from shyness and excessive prudence to a tendency to splurge and be headstrong in relationships. The child could be highly sensitive, and therefore easily hurt or perhaps emotionally volatile. A healthy relationship with the parent of the opposite sex will help the child attract more positive relationships in adulthood. The child needs to be taught sound values regarding sex and money. Some children born with this aspect are very physical: they want instant gratification. Learning to delay gratification (when necessary) builds character. As your child grows in self-discipline, he should have healthy relationships and so avert getting into trouble with the opposite sex, particularly during the teenage years.

Venus Trine Jupiter
Even in a more serious chart, this aspect lends a touch of generosity and joy. It is considered a fortunate aspect: good things tend to come your child's way. One day he could end up with a lot of money, property – possessions of all kinds. He is likely to be generous and warm by nature, and probably gives as much as he gets. There could be a love of travel and exploration; of art, culture and religion. Unless strongly counter-indicated, children with this aspect tend to get along well with their elders. The negative manifestation of this aspect is a tendency to be wasteful, extravagant, self-indulgent. Without self-discipline in diet, individuals with this aspect tend to put on weight. The child may have a sweet tooth. Encourage him but teach him restraint!

Venus Trine Saturn
This is the child who enjoys responsibility, and loves to bring order and discipline to anything (or anyone) with whom he is involved. Even in a more open chart, this aspect adds a measure of restraint. The child's friends may tend to be older than he. He probably gets along well with his elders. The child could have marked artistic talent. Even if your child doesn't end up being an artist or performer, teaching him a skill such as painting, dancing or singing in a disciplined manner over a period of time will help develop character. Your child is loyal to loved ones. On the negative side, some children with this Venus/Saturn contact find it hard to express their feelings. Others may feel unappreciated or unloved. Your child may need more affection than you suspect.

Venus Square Pluto
This aspect inclines toward emotionally intense relationships. The child with this Venus/Pluto aspect could tend to put off confrontations until they build up and then explode, kind of like having his own built-in volcano. Physical activities such as sports could channel his pent-up energy constructively. He may have a flair for secrecy. Even if the rest of the chart suggests that the child is friendly and open, this aspect could lead him into intense personal involvements. You can help him master these powerful energies by emphasizing sharing, cooperation and the nature of true friendship. Help him develop a healthy self-esteem. Teach him to avoid power games in friendships (i.e. the childhood threat we've all been subjected to one time or another: "If you don't do such and such, I won't be your best friend anymore.") Even with the hard aspects, Venus/Pluto contacts confer charisma and heightened magnetic charm. Children with this aspect often have a lot of love to give, and may feel very attached to one (or both) parents. Children who do not receive adequate affection and attention in childhood, or who are dominated, pampered, or ignored are in danger of developing in adulthood the two major negative emotions associated with this aspect: jealousy and possessiveness.

The External Planets: Mars, Jupiter, Saturn

The major planets outside the Earth's orbit (external to us) are Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. These are the planets describing the outer world and circumstances surrounding the child, the status, well-being and conditions he is born into and what urges him on to greater achievements as he grows. Mars will tune you in to what motivates your child and the way he approaches life. Jupiter shows us how he is most apt to channel that energy, and Saturn decrees what sort of obstacles will confront him on the road to success. Again: Saturn tells us about the territory we will be going through, Jupiter the way or path through it, and Mars what kind of push or drive we can count on to keep going.

 Mars: Action Through Desire; Drive, Motivation, and Anger

Mars is the planet of emotion and drive. When we search for the meaning of something, it is Mars that urges us on, keeps us searching. Mars will tell us what motivates our child, what captures his interest. By studying the aspects formed between Mars and other planets we discern if our child expresses desire in a healthy and direct manner or whether he feels blocked (squares) by inner or outer conditions. We also learn how our child expresses anger, whether in strong bursts (Mars in Fire Signs), bottled up and tears (Mars in Water Signs) or with cutting words (Air signs). With greater understanding we can help our child deal with his feelings in a constructive way. Mars tells us about our child's interest and aptitude (or lack of it), for physical exercises, sports, recreation. Mars drives us against things, too, and sends us into war and combat. Mars imparts courage and stamina. The house position of Mars in the child's chart will tell us in what area of life he is likely to enter the greatest degree of active conflict or activity: In the 11th, with friends, in the 3rd, perhaps with sisters and brothers, or in competitive learning at school.

Mars in Capricorn
Capricorn is an Earth sign on the action cross. Its symbol is The Goat. The Mars in Capricorn child is by nature a very hard worker and is driven to accomplish, manage, and be in control. He is a natural born supervisor! Reinforce his inner urge for order by providing him with an orderly and structured environment. Teach him economy, practicality, and the importance of fair play. Your child has a sense of duty and responsibility that may belie his years. Because of a marked ability to take decisive action and to delegate responsibility, children with this position may grow up to be administrators or public servants. Work in construction or carpentry is also favored. Other jobs your child may be suited for are; chiropractor, government official, military officer, economist, draftsman, manager or bricklayer!

Whatever his future profession, he is likely to seek to be in command. This powerful placement is best framed by a humble and reverent attitude. Teach your child not to judge (condemn) others, lest he be judged. Some negative traits to avoid or work through are a tendency to be  temperamental, dogmatic, overbearing, and/or ambitious to the point of disregarding the rights of others. Positive qualities to instill in your child are a true sense of humility, sensitivity to the needs of others, and the balance between worldly ambitions and spiritual values. Teach him that the ends don't justify the means!

Your child is willing to work hard to get to the top! He might enjoy physical (mountain) climbing. Mars in Capricorn youngsters typically enjoy contact with the earth: building in the sandbox, outdoor hikes, gardening, rocks collecting. Your child might take to sports that require endurance such as jogging. The influence of the father (or dominant parent) is pivotal for later success in life and may provide the prime motivation (positively or negatively) behind the child's drive to be somebody important when he grows up!

Venus Opposition Mars
An opposition can always manifest as the harmonious interplay of yin and yang or as conflict and strife. Most children born with this aspect are extremely sensitive. However, your child may need to learn to be as sensitive to the feelings of others as he expects others to be to his own. All opposition show the need to learn to share, to compromise and come half-way and we learn to do this by interacting with others. If Venus is stronger, the child may be artistically inclined, perhaps shy, perhaps self-indulgent. If Mars is stronger, drive may manifest as argumentation and belligerence. The child seeks balance within of the feminine and masculine aspects of his being. This process may be reflected in the choice of friends and companions. The child's experience of the parents' interaction with one another and his own relationship with the parent of the opposite sex may be the model for adult partnerships.

Mars Sextile Jupiter
This aspect is a very fortunate influence in the chart, and is conducive to success in enterprises. Your child is likely to be enthusiastic and energetic in action. When he is motivated to do something, he probably goes after it in a big way! Others remark on his creative energy, great drive, and the fact that he never seems to let up! Children with this positive Mars/Jupiter contact are prompted to help people solve their problems. They particularly like to lend a hand to those in trouble or less fortunate circumstances. When personal problems arise, your child is not afraid to tackle them. This aspect often points to a love of adventure, sport and travel. It favors careers in law, social work and psychology, education (or training others), religion (especially preaching) and publishing.

Jupiter: The Teacher; Opportunity, Career and Life Path

The Hindu word for Jupiter is Guru. Jupiter is the guru and guide, the way we go through life, our life path and personal philosophy. Our first teachers and guides are usually our parents. Then there are our school teachers, ministers, and other significant adults who enter our life and guide us. Jupiter is the body of knowledge and wisdom made available to us, our method for dealing with the laws of life, our Saturn, or limitations. Saturn represents the father, structure, rules of behavior and social norms we must learn to abide by. Jupiter is the light or path. Jupiter rules religion, philosophy, culture, travel, history; how we expand our horizons, our philosophy of life. It has always been an indicator of how successful we may be, our vocation. In the child's chart, we look to Jupiter for clues as to how our child seeks to know more about life, what appeals to him, and where he may need to pull in the reins and balance exploration (Jupiter) with greater discipline (Saturn). A child with Jupiter in the 1st house in Aries, for example, will jump to the occasion for a trip, an experience to broaden his horizons and self-understanding but will need to find the balance between opportunities for growth and responsibilities (Saturn).

Jupiter in Pisces
Jupiter in Pisces is often the signature of a real humanitarian, someone with a genuine interest in social work who is able to sacrifice in order to help others. This is the position of the good Samaritan. Jupiter in Pisces children typically show early signs of a love of what's beyond the surface: religion, psychology, and mysticism. Your child may be happiest when ministering to others. He seeks a career that calls for intuition, sensitivity and compassion. He would make an excellent counselor. As a child, your child would likely enjoy caring for a little pet, learning first aid, and volunteering in church fundraisers. Because he seeks spiritual understanding, he would benefit by early exposure to the great religious and philosophical truths. Hopefully, he can hitch his wagon to a star! These children are devotional and without an early focus for their adoration (a great religious figure or teacher) they can fix their attention on false gurus and rock stars! If Jupiter aspects personal planets, your child could be somewhat naive. Teach him to be as gentle as a dove, but as wise as a serpent!

Sun Square Jupiter
The value of good timing and realism are keys best taught your child from birth! With good Saturn placements, your child may know just how to balance enthusiasm with diligence and self-discipline. Considered by itself, this aspect can lead to a tendency to go "over-board," to be wasteful or extravagant. Due to an inflated sense of self-importance, advice from elders could fall by the wayside. If this is the case, then your child would in effect, to use an old adage, be his own (at times) worst enemy. As parents you need to be realistic in your own aspirations for him. In addition, there is a possibility of difficulty with authorities and elders. He must learn to listen (at least once in awhile) to advice given to him in his own best interests!

Mercury Trine Jupiter
Your child enjoys working with his mind and can usually find a solution to even the worst problems. He likes to solve puzzles and dilemmas. His skills in this regard make him expert at counseling and guiding others. Fine verbal skills and a natural sense of justice makes legal work a distinct possibility. Working with laws, natural or man-made, amounts to a real talent. Your child also has a great interest in ideas, the more true and lasting the better. Religious concepts will likely be a lifelong concern for him. He loves to travel and may even spend some time studying away from home.

Venus Trine Jupiter
Here we have the mark of a happy, affectionate child. Your child may have an innate love of the law and working things through, and he is not put off by problems and obstacles. On the contrary, he looks forward to solving them. Your child gets along well with peers and elders, possessing an innate ability to work with others. This may later lead to a position in law or public relations. Artistic talent is also indicated and decorating, interior design, and the like may be his cup of tea. This is considered an excellent aspect for teachers and publishers. Your child may love sports and the outdoors. Because he is generous and loving, your child is likely to be popular. This aspect is considered fortunate, but too much of a good thing can be detrimental! Teach your child the wisdom of "all things in moderation."

Mars Sextile Jupiter
Your child is a great doer, an accomplisher. His outgoing nature, coupled with extremely skillful ways of handling other people, make him a natural for working with or for audiences. He is likely to be popular in school, and may organize many social events. Your child would make an excellent teacher or coach, and helping others to make important (career) decisions is a skill that will blossom as he grows. He has plenty of drive and may excel at sports. He may tend to overdo things; overspend, overeat, overplan (such as in inviting 10 more children than you've room for to his birthday party!) Teach him to be economical with time, energy and funds. This aspect is considered to be a positive and protective influence!

Saturn: The Lawgiver; Rules, Responsibility, Trials, Growth, Father

Saturn rules the laws and limitations of this material world we all live in. Saturn indicates where we are bound to learn, the narrowness that makes our way felt, the walls that make homes possible. Saturn holds us together as much as apart. Saturn represents the law and is said to be the Great Teacher. Saturn defines and clarifies. Saturn represents the reality of life in the physical universe. We understand how vital it is that our children learn to accept responsibility, maintain their environment in order, finish homework and projects on time, learn how to delay gratification. Hopefully, they learn as they grow how to turn mistakes into lessons, obstacles into stepping stones to success. Saturn represents the father or dominant parent, all adults whom the child looks up to as authorities. Saturn represents the law of the land we're born into, the family rules and traditions and our own innate or developed sense of fairness. Saturnian qualities are rarely self-evident in the small child. Children have to learn self-discipline, order, patience, obedience. This they do in cycles of time. Saturn represents the process of maturity, the outlines for growth presented to us by our teachers and our inner biological clock. Saturn by sign, house, aspect and Saturn cycles in your child's chart and in your own provide a wonderful blueprint whose design you can follow to help your children grow to be successful in this world.

Saturn in Sagittarius
Your child was born with Saturn, the Great Teacher, in Sagittarius the sign of religion, philosophy, law and travel. He inwardly seeks to develop a personal philosophy of life which will frame his later work and which he can share with others. Your child will benefit through sound ethical and moral training. He may require higher courses of formal study to fulfill his career aspirations. He is interested in learning about the great cultural and historical traditions. In educating this child, you yourself can broaden your horizons!  Supply him with plenty of colorful stories: King Arthur and the Knights; Marco Polo, Christopher Columbus, and the great explorers; Jacques Cousteau videos, National Geographic; the biographies of great men such as George Washington; the great religious traditions of East and West. Resources such as the Children's Bible, an encyclopedia plus Hirsch's Cultural Literacy Encyclopedia can provide a fountain of information for his thirsty mind! Your child may feel a sense of mission in life. Sometimes, however, zeal is carried to an extreme in this sign manifesting as religious fanaticism, intellectual arrogance and pride. Hopefully, religious tolerance is practiced in your household! Remind him that no one has all the right answers all the time! Intellectual conceit could manifest as resentment. Your child may have to learn to accept constructive criticism and disciplines.

Moon Square Saturn
The child with a Moon/Saturn contact needs to feel nurtured and loved by his mother. If the Moon is well aspected, the mother is teacher, disciplinarian, and constant in her care and so the child feels secure in the relationship. With afflictions, the child may see the mother as demanding or critical of him (whether or not this be so), or may feel he cannot live up to her (perceived) expectations of him. In either case, the mother's influence is strong and influences the child's relationships with women as an adult. Especially busy single, divorced or working mothers need to ensure that their Moon/Saturn child gets the attention he needs. A fanatically strict upbringing, judgmental parents, absent parents or harsh conditions could result in the child feeling unworthy, lonely, self-critical. Moon/Saturn children generally do their best work in structured situations. They benefit by routines, and thrive when endowed with meaningful responsibilities. Praise and approval may mean a lot to your child, and he needs plenty of it in honest measures! Teach him to think positively. No complaining allowed! Count your blessings together daily! Leave room for fun! Your child may enjoy caring for a younger sibling. A pet puppy could be his pride and joy! As an adult, your child could be attracted to social services.

Venus Trine Saturn
Your child could be an excellent teacher in areas requiring discipline and organization. He values order and places a high premium on hard work and effort. Whatever is most practical is best. He is apt to appreciate things that are durable and long-lasting. Your child has a natural love of truth, philosophy, law, and the like. This is considered a favorable aspect for architects, designers, teachers (especially of music or art), and performing artists since discipline/structure/form (Saturn) and art/beauty/relationships with others (Venus) are harmoniously linked. This Venus/Saturn aspect also favors lawyers, bankers, and real estate agents. Endowed with common sense and understanding, your child should be responsible and caring. His friends are apt to be older than he.

The Outer Planets

In the previous sections, we have dealt with planets that we can see with our naked eyes. In general, these planets refer to life as we know and live it and are the so-called inner planets. Beyond these are three planets that are not visible in the sky and which have cycles longer than the average human life span. Since they are beyond Saturn or time, astrologers call them the trans-personal or transcendental planets – Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. Here you will find information on issues and attitudes typical of your child's generation. Uranus represents the sense of discovery, new frontiers, revolutions and consequent changes we make. Neptune reveals how we understand and accept these discoveries, our understanding of mystical and/or inner realities, the expression of devotion and compassion. Pluto points to the great challenges confronting ourselves and our civilization. How can we best prepare our children to meet these challenges? To fulfill their fiery destiny individually and collectively? To stand firm amidst the winds of change? To reach out for worlds beyond the physical? To feel secure in their relationship to God? For most of us, the challenges increase as we mature but certainly the foundation is set in childhood!

Uranus: The Awakener; Rebellion, Breakthroughs, Insights, Originality

Uranus is the planet that indicates how we free ourselves from the difficulties and problems life presents us. Uranus represents our link to the higher mind, Universal Intelligence. Here is the way insights come to us, how we discover or come to know and understand ourselves. Uranian energy shows us how to find new uses for old things. It rules inventions and sudden insights into our life – everything that is unusual, eccentric, and out of the ordinary. Uranus is, in many ways, the opposite, or undoing of Saturn. We look to Uranus in the child's chart to understand his personal sense of uniqueness, where he dares to be different. Uranus also may reveal individual genius, talent, interests. With hard aspects, or if Uranus is placed in the 1st, 4th, 7th, or 10th houses, we may have to deal with willfulness and/or rebelliousness in the child, or he may perceive himself as somehow different from the rest. Parents and teachers can help the child with strong Uranian aspects by providing him with avenues for individual expression and creativity, and by recognizing his natural bent to experiment with new ways of doing things. At the same time, the child needs to learn that there is no true freedom without accountability. Be consistent in applying the rules. He needs to know the consequences of his use of free will.

Uranus in Sagittarius
Your child was born into a subgeneration that will look beyond orthodoxy for the answers to inner questions and for the eternal truths. They may open our eye to new philosophies, ideas for the future and new approaches to travel and exploration (of all kinds). Long journeys likely interest your child. He may startle others with his direct conversations, always getting right to the heart of the matter. Especially if he has an outgoing personality, he enjoys being alone, free, and on the move. If Uranus aspects personal planets, he tends to be optimistic and adventurous. With hard aspects, the child may need encouragement in finishing tasks and in accepting responsibility.

Sun Opposition Uranus
Let me do it MY way! Sound familiar? Well, your child may not accept neither limits nor directions without challenging them!

he might see himself as marching to a different drumbeat! This position may indicate unusual talents, scientific know-how, or even genius but is best aspected by other traits stabilizing an otherwise erratic or unstable personality. Your child could benefit from periods of quiet, learning to relax. It is vital that you be consistent with this child. Conflicts with teachers, authorities and classmates come from a justification of nonconformity. Your child may be attracted to friends (and later partners) who are somehow different, with off-beat lifestyles.

Jupiter Square Uranus
All goes well until the question of personal freedom comes up. Eventually, your child will learn that to move ahead in life demands a certain degree of conformity and the toning down of perhaps unconventional habits. At school he may take a more radical approach. This could be a source of some tension, and he might just discover that a tendency to rebel can get him in hot water every time.

Neptune: The Savior; Illusion, Ideals, Imagination, Spirituality

Neptune provides the key for unlocking our child's imagination! Neptune represents the bridge to worlds we cannot see. Neptune, then, tells us about the child's need for worship, adoration, devotion. Neptune relates to music and the arts and is prominent in the charts of many creative people. Being an outer planet, Neptune also paints a picture of the collective dreams of our child's generation, dreams which may build upon, alter or even challenge our own. Neptune's influence tends to be subtle, often affecting us on subconscious levels. If afflicted, Neptune can indicate areas where the child may feel confused, uncertain or fearful. Read Neptune by sign, house and aspect but realize that your child may not consciously be aware of Neptune's influence until he reaches adulthood.

Neptune in Capricorn
The practical is the ideal. Your child was born into a group of dynamic children who will seek to obtain power and control. They will bring order out of the prevailing world chaos and change they grew up in. Although they may spend their childhood years in times of global hardship, they will grow up to usher in a Golden Age. Your child and his peers will seek ways to incorporate spiritual truths into government and management. If Neptune afflicts personal planets, he could be too critical of himself or of authority figures. He benefits through consistent and clear direction from grown-ups and a structured work environment.

Moon Trine Neptune
Children born with this creative aspect often have a built-in sense of how to make other people happy. Your child is likely to be imaginative and sensitive to the moods of others. He picks up easily on other peoples vibrations and could be kind and compassionate. On the other hand, your child may need to learn not to let others take advantage of his good nature. He may need help separating out his dreams from reality. Your child may have artistic or musical talent, or enjoy listening to music. He might benefit from art, ballet, drama or music classes – some art form combining creativity and discipline. He is likely to feel close to his mother and relatives.

Pluto: The Shadow; Deep Fears, Inner Change, Growth, Regeneration

Pluto is the planet of profound change, of generation and regeneration. Pluto often touches upon the most sensitive psychological areas within us. Once touched, we have no choice but to change and grow. If Pluto aspects a personal planet in your child's chart, he will experience an intense desire for self-transformation on some level of his being. Pluto contacts often teach us through intense experiences. We feel as if we've lived several lifetimes in one! The struggle of our century with nuclear power is a plutonian issue. Will this intense power be used as a dynamo of life or to devastate life? Stress the positive, be ready to help your child navigate through intense emotions he may feel, but not necessarily comprehend. Teach him to express this power wisely.

Pluto in Scorpio
Astrologers predict that this group of children, born at the end of the Piscean Age, will live through drastic upheaval and earth changes. Spiritual and physical survival are questions they and their parents will have to address. Your child may find psychology, initiation, mysticism, and the occult of great interest. Intense personal transformations and inner growth are lifelong habits. If Pluto aspects a personal planet in your child's chart, it will intensify or block its natural expression. Difficult aspects can manifest as shyness. He may not tell you what's really on his mind. Gain your child's trust and encourage open communication between you.

Moon Sextile Pluto
AH! Here's the child that loves hearing stories about mysteries, the unknown! Your child is likely to feel a close relationship to his mother. He also is a natural psychologist, and friends may come to him for advice, even during school years. He has a knack for working with the public and may be quite dramatic in the expression of his emotions. Your child is perceptive. People sense this about him and trust him with sensitive matters, inner worries, and questions of personal identity. Does your child talk about his dreams in life? If so, why not write them down? Even as a child, he is apt to have a sense of a real mission in life!

Venus Square Pluto
Children with Venus/Pluto contacts are extremely sensitive. They need to give and to receive much love. If the child, however, feels unloved or threatened, he may withdraw. Trust, then, is the first order of the day with the Venus/Pluto child. If he cannot love openly because of anger or other harsh reactions (or lack of response) he may become manipulative. The Venus/Pluto child can also be very demanding of a favorite parent or teacher, and should not be over-indulged. The key here is the right balance of love and fairness (he may want all your time but you, of course, need to give equally to all your children). Children with this aspect often need to learn to let go of old possessions and to share with other children. Some feel threatened if they lose control over their environment. At its highest expression, this aspect describes one who loves deeply and who is capable of healing and regenerating self and others through the power of love. Your child could have a magnetic or impelling appeal. Some children with this dynamic square between Venus (money, art, beauty, attraction) and Pluto (the masses, television, intense emotions) could do well in business careers, modeling, photography, television, movie careers or in politics.

Neptune Sextile Pluto
This aspect belongs more to the times, describing the opportunity at hand for great change through understanding of profound spiritual laws. It points to the interest in psychology so prevalent in this century. The times themselves prove to be a great teacher.



 

Challenges and Abilities

Potential

Life can be challenging, and things are not always easy. The major challenges in a natal chart are where we can expect increased activity and personal involvement – ready or not. These critical areas of life can be difficult, and the resulting confusion and possible obscuration often makes it hard for us to see and act with normal clarity. Some of these aspects are apparent in little children, others describe yourselves, his parents and teachers, and the environment you provide for him. Other aspects may show up later, at about age 12 or older, even in young adulthood. Your knowledge of these areas in your child's chart should give you a greater understanding as to how to help him turn stumbling blocks into rings on the ladder of success. Therefore, when it comes to the following factors in your child's chart, you may wish to exercise extra patience.

Sun Square Jupiter  00°51'
Your child is likely to be enthusiastic and "Sunny." He could be generous, friendly and cheerful. He might have a fair share of bravado and self-confidence. He could also radiate much energy and could probably benefit by plenty of exercise and outdoor play. Nevertheless, until he resolves this aspect, your child may display a tendency, or perhaps a knack, for ignoring good advice. More than once, he may find himself at odds with the correct, or prescribed way of doing things. This could manifest in a problem with authority figures. For example, he may tend to resent or resist the suggestions of his elders, perhaps his father. The father, however, for better or for worse, often sets the pattern influencing the child's behavior.

Your child could be generous but may tend to go overboard, be extravagant, take on too much too soon. Be patient in teaching your child common sense and economy. Teach him to accept responsibility, tackle one job at a time and to finish what he begins. (Positive Saturn aspects might provide the key for helping your child develop self-discipline.)

Sun Opposition Uranus  02°05'
Sun/Uranus aspects often indicate leadership potential. Your child may be very magnetic, others being drawn to him. He is not afraid to be different, and may indeed be a "trendsetter." Later in life he is likely to be interested in some kind of social or political reform. However, the child with the this aspect may be somewhat of a rebel, with a history of flaunting convention and going against authority. He may feel different than his schoolmates. He could separate himself out and end up as the loner, although this is not necessarily what he inwardly desires. Your child could be very bright with exceptional talent. To be happy, however, he needs to learn to cooperate with others. Be patient in seeing him through those unexciting but necessary routines which are simply part of life. His ideas may be brilliant, but help him learn to test them for practical value as well. Sometimes, Sun/Uranus aspects describe the father as being radical, eccentric, highly individualistic or somehow unusual. Note: if Saturn is well aspected, your child is more apt to have his feet on the ground!

Moon Square Saturn  04°26'
Children born with the Moon square or opposite Saturn may have to grapple with trying conditions at home: apart from circumstances, the parents could be excessively strict, severe, rigid or emotionally distant. These attitudes inhibit the spontaneous flow of emotions in the child. In households where this is not the case, the child is nevertheless apt to perceive it as so. He needs an extra dose of affection, particularly from his mother! He needs to know he is worthy of being loved. Teach him to see what is good about himself and others. Remind him that when we smile the world smiles with us, but when we cry we often cry alone!

Venus Opposition Mars  04°34'
This challenging aspect indicates potential conflict in relationships. The child needs to learn to cooperate and get along harmoniously with others. The negative manifestation could range from shyness and excessive prudence to a tendency to splurge and be headstrong in relationships. The child could be highly sensitive, and therefore easily hurt or perhaps emotionally volatile. A healthy relationship with the parent of the opposite sex will help the child attract more positive relationships in adulthood. The child needs to be taught sound values regarding sex and money. Some children born with this aspect are very physical: they want instant gratification. Learning to delay gratification (when necessary) builds character. As your child grows in self-discipline, he should have healthy relationships and so avert getting into trouble with the opposite sex, particularly during the teenage years.

Venus Square Pluto  07°16'
This aspect inclines toward emotionally intense relationships. The child with this Venus/Pluto aspect could tend to put off confrontations until they build up and then explode, kind of like having his own built-in volcano. Physical activities such as sports could channel his pent-up energy constructively. He may have a flair for secrecy. Even if the rest of the chart suggests that the child is friendly and open, this aspect could lead him into intense personal involvements. You can help him master these powerful energies by emphasizing sharing, cooperation and the nature of true friendship. Help him develop a healthy self-esteem. Teach him to avoid power games in friendships (i.e. the childhood threat we've all been subjected to one time or another: "If you don't do such and such, I won't be your best friend anymore.") Even with the hard aspects, Venus/Pluto contacts confer charisma and heightened magnetic charm. Children with this aspect often have a lot of love to give, and may feel very attached to one (or both) parents. Children who do not receive adequate affection and attention in childhood, or who are dominated, pampered, or ignored are in danger of developing in adulthood the two major negative emotions associated with this aspect: jealousy and possessiveness.

Talents and Abilities

Despite whatever problems we may have, there are areas of life where we have clear insight and real talent – natural ability. When it comes to these matters, our judgment is sharp and we always manage to take charge. We have the knack. It may be as simple as the ability to work hard and accomplish things without something going wrong. An innate sense of the workings of these parts of life makes it easy for us to learn and accomplish things where they are concerned. Positive aspects in your child's chart are like money in the bank. It does little good if not wisely invested. Too much ease in a chart can result in lack of motivation. Therefore, provide your child with opportunities to bring out and develop areas of inherent ability.

Mars Sextile Jupiter  01°27'
This aspect is a very fortunate influence in the chart, and is conducive to success in enterprises. Your child is likely to be enthusiastic and energetic in action. When he is motivated to do something, he probably goes after it in a big way! Others remark on his creative energy, great drive, and the fact that he never seems to let up! Children with this positive Mars/Jupiter contact are prompted to help people solve their problems. They particularly like to lend a hand to those in trouble or less fortunate circumstances. When personal problems arise, your child is not afraid to tackle them. This aspect often points to a love of adventure, sport and travel. It favors careers in law, social work and psychology, education (or training others), religion (especially preaching) and publishing.

Moon Trine Neptune  04°01'
Children born with this aspect may be enchanting, with a dreamy look about them. They often have artistic and/or musical talent. They are highly impressionable and tend to pick up on other people's vibrations. Children with the Moon aspecting Neptune need to learn to be discriminating in their choice of companions. Your child may be very kind, but gullible and easily duped (and therefore disappointed.) The line between fantasy and fact may not be apparent. The child could adore the mother, or be confused by her. The mother may help the child develop his creativity productively.

Moon Sextile Pluto  04°03'
The Moon aspecting Pluto is an extremely powerful aspect that can indicate a dynamo of creative potential, or tremendous destructive force. Your child is apt to be courageous. He is willing to try harder to improve himself or his work. This child needs a strong bonding to the mother. Nevertheless, the child with Moon/Pluto contacts may feel overwhelmed or overpowered by her. This aspect gives a Scorpio coloring to the Moon and indicates the need for trust and communication in the mother-child relationship. The child feels intensely but is not apt to reveal his feelings without prompting. He may be dauntless, but willful; intuitive, but secretive; insightful, but manipulative. Establish the law and maintain it consistently, never in anger but in love.

Venus Trine Jupiter  06°01'
Even in a more serious chart, this aspect lends a touch of generosity and joy. It is considered a fortunate aspect: good things tend to come your child's way. One day he could end up with a lot of money, property – possessions of all kinds. He is likely to be generous and warm by nature, and probably gives as much as he gets. There could be a love of travel and exploration; of art, culture and religion. Unless strongly counter-indicated, children with this aspect tend to get along well with their elders. The negative manifestation of this aspect is a tendency to be wasteful, extravagant, self-indulgent. Without self-discipline in diet, individuals with this aspect tend to put on weight. The child may have a sweet tooth. Encourage him but teach him restraint!

Mercury Trine Jupiter  07°33'
This aspect often indicates a problem-solver, someone who can think of a way to do almost anything (or think his way out of almost anything)! Children with this aspect have a reputation among their peers of being fair and honest. Typically, they enjoy learning and are confident of their mental abilities. Your child is apt to enjoy traveling and seeks new experiences to broaden his horizons. This aspect indicates an ability to persuade others, and therefore favors politics, counseling and ministerial type work. As an adult, your child may find himself interested in legal matters, publishing, philosophical and religious subjects, and would make a good teacher or instructor. Scientific investigation might interest him also.

Venus Trine Saturn  07°40'
This is the child who enjoys responsibility, and loves to bring order and discipline to anything (or anyone) with whom he is involved. Even in a more open chart, this aspect adds a measure of restraint. The child's friends may tend to be older than he. He probably gets along well with his elders. The child could have marked artistic talent. Even if your child doesn't end up being an artist or performer, teaching him a skill such as painting, dancing or singing in a disciplined manner over a period of time will help develop character. Your child is loyal to loved ones. On the negative side, some children with this Venus/Saturn contact find it hard to express their feelings. Others may feel unappreciated or unloved. Your child may need more affection than you suspect.

 

 

Major Life Periods

What follows amounts to a brief overview of the first thirty years or so of your child's life – a road map of the years to come. Since childhood, adolescence, and early adult life are so crucial to each of us, an attempt has been made to describe these formative years. Based on the gradual movement of the planet Saturn, this is one of the most tested of all astrological techniques. It is used by almost every professional astrologer as part of any personal consultation. Provided that your child's time of birth is more or less accurate, you will find this information both accurate and informative.

Personal Background

By age 7, the child has absorbed an enormous amount of learning. His physical body has reached 70% of his growth potential. Permanent teeth (teeth relate to Saturn) begin to emerge. He passes from the absorbent mind stage into the stage of active reason. He is on his way to becoming an independent adult. Saturn represent rules and laws. At 7 years of age, Saturn forms its first square and you can expect your child "to test the law," at home and at school. Astrologically, this is a critical point in his development. Your child may be a very social child – an accomplished leader at the age of even seven or eight and a real socialite in the early teens. All of this is somewhat premature, so don't be surprised if your child later loses some of his interest in the external, social scene during the middle teen years. At that time, your child just may discover a more subjective side of himself and could elect to take a more inward direction. Turning away from the social scene, your child could spend many years pursuing his inner life. At about age 14 or 15, Saturn opposes its own position in the chart and most teens pass through a kind of identity crisis. Balance is the keyword but the adolescent who says to himself, how can I be free to make my own decisions, but who is usually not ready to leave the nest! This more involuted and personal time may intensify when your child is 21-22 years and last until your child is around 30 years of age. At that time your child may go through a remarkable change, sort of discovering himself all at once. The more inward years of inner searching will pay off with new confidence and real direction. Your child is likely to begin his real life's work after this time, and his middle years will be very strong and successful.

Current Situation

Now for a close-up of recent years: while landscape was quite general, the dates given in this close-up should be much more precise. Don't look here for a day-to-day account of life but rather to get a picture of this stretch of time, "these years." In 28 to 30 years, Saturn will return to its natal position at birth and we experience the so-called "Saturn return." At age 14 (first Saturn opposition) and again at age 29 (first Saturn return), we become very aware of Saturn's influence in our life. Important events, or points of growth may occur around age 7 as well (first Saturn square). I do not believe, however, that the child is AWARE of Saturn's influence in a personal sense. Saturn in the child's chart may indicate conditions in his environment, his relationship to others, and especially to his father and other significant authority figures in his life. Saturn represents the law, limits, restrictions, attitude toward responsibilities, hard work, and fairness. The child learns these in stages. A Saturnian keyword is "maturity."

Please note that for Newborns and children less than 7 years of age, the report may indicate a year prior to the actual birth of the child. If this is the case for your child, it means that Saturn was at the degree on the cusp of the quadrant in question on the date indicated. If this occurred about 3 years ago, for example, Saturn will remain in that quadrant for about 4 more years.

Apr 28, 1999   1st Pass D>    (Age 12 10m)

By the last date shown, Saturn, the great tester, conjoined the Midheaven and entered the 10th house of your child's chart. The 10th house is one of the 4 "Angular" houses. When Saturn enters an angular house, it signifies a gradual shifting of gears. The 10th house in the child's chart relates to the father or father figure, to all significant elders or authorities in the child's life and also to his reputation and status among his peers. This is an earth house, one of "works." The older child could make significant progress in his schoolwork during this time. If he is so inclined. He could take up a position of responsibility at home or at school. He may be particularly interested in pursuing what he wants to do when his grows up! He could be helped or hindered by parents. He may work well with restrictions, limits, and responsibilities or buck against them and feel frustrated, depending on his character and upbringing. This could be a good period to master a skill of one kind or another. In accordance with his abilities and the opportunities available to him, this should be a cycle of achievement. The older child can show what he has mastered. Even with younger children, this is a time to place an emphasis on right attitudes toward responsibilities and authorities.

The Elements, Modalities, and Angularity

Elements, modalities, and house quadrants. These are all techniques used by astrologers to gain a general picture of energy patterns and focus, temperament and modes of action. How does your child's planets and houses total up? Which does he have in abundance, and which does he lack, if any? Those with high totals show what we can or must do in life; plus points to be developed. These are qualities we have. "Wants" are areas that may be weaker and need developing or balance. Sometimes people overcompensate the "wants" and even pretend to have them. The old adage is: we become what we want (or lack), while we do what we can (or have to do) with what we've got. Here are your child's totals:

Have Water
Your child is apt to experience life mostly through his emotions and how he "feels" about someone or something. His intuition is likely to be strong and can guide him accurately in making forecasts or decisions. He could be compassionate and/or psychically attuned. Because of his sensitivity, he might recoil from more aggressive types.

Want Air
Some children with this emphasis find it hard getting their ideas across to others, sometimes feeling inadequate in matters that require logic or the use of mental powers. Most however, are simply so busy, they would simply benefit by learning to take the time to reflect before acting. Your child is likely to be bigger on actions than on words. Avoid long lectures with this child: active measures of discipline, such as logical consequences, would be more effective! (A strong Mercury by sign, aspect or house position or an Air sign Ascendant would compensate)

Have Mutable
Your child is apt to be communicative, flexible, mental, and other-oriented. He could be a natural teacher. He could be restless, liking plenty of variety.

Want Fixed
Not too centered, perhaps not always able to hang in there for the long haul. Your child might not make a good linebacker. He could tend to be all over the place rather than front and center! Learning to bring it all together could be a major challenge.

Have Succedent
You may find that to enter wholeheartedly into any venture, your child's feelings need to be stirred. Love, ideals, and a strong sense of his own worth are vital to his sense of well-being.

Want Angular
Your child could have difficulty getting outer recognition for his efforts or accomplishments. This doesn't mean they're worthless. It does mean he should throw his efforts into work or ventures he really loves doing.



 

Patterns; Inner and Outer Self

Here we are examining basic patterns, called astrological configurations, within your child's charts. These will reveal much about your child's basic attitude or approach to life. The more one studies astrology, the more it comes down to a basic understanding of these simple patterns. The configurations can provide valuable information as to the general direction of your child's life, and his mode of action. It is particularly interesting to note differences in comparing the Heliocentric and Geocentric patterns. While Heliocentric interpretations are still in an experimental stage, some modern astrologers suggest that a comparison of these patterns reveals the difference, if any, between our outer personality (the way we appear to others) and our real inner self; who are we, in fact, as people get to know us? Not all people are as they seem.

Geo: Square  Helio: Trine
Your child may not be what he appears to be. His personality, the way the world sees him, appears more independent and outgoing than is the case when people get to know him. An extroverted manner screens a more inward and quiet-seeking self. In other words, he is much more sensitive and concerned about what others think than meets the eye. Although his outer personality may look tough and self-centered, he is more sensitive to the needs and feelings of others than he may let on. Whereas his appearance and personality may bring him unwanted attention, the real "me" prefers to stay out of the limelight. Appearances aside, let's take a look at the real or inner child.

Inner Meanings, Life Patterns

Trine Type
Your child could be the eternal patron of just about anyone who will let him look after them – the original mother hen. He needs to feel useful and wanted and is most happy when he is active and involved and lending a hand. Always the hostess, your child finds himself (in most situations) caring for and taking care of others. In fact, he may tend to worry about others too much. Not content to let others judge him on appearance alone, he would rather be judged by his actions, by what he has done or can do. His general sense of concern for everything makes him invaluable when anything needs doing and, if left unoccupied, he may be known to even worry for worry's sake! Given only a few facts, your child is able to take in a situation and come up with a real picture of what is happening. He is happiest when fully engaged. Your child will tend to find himself in responding to others. He is talented at putting his ideas into words and describing or analyzing situations. Chances are he will work in one of the many service occupations, taking care of and looking after people. Your child's mind and caring attitude are what others find attractive in him.

Keys to Understanding Your Child's Personality

Jupiter
Your child's sense of personal philosophy is perhaps the key element in his personality make-up. How he manages difficulties, finds that diplomatic solution, or comes up with the right approach all are built around his convictions. His outward charm and ability to be all things to all people is what is most central to his personality. This ability to solve problems, to advise and put others at ease is the key to coming to know him.

The Personal Hot Spot

Jupiter
Your child's personal philosophy of life, his sense of judgment, and problem-solving ability are at the top of the list. He seeks ways to expand his horizons. A seeker, adventurer, traveler, or explorer.

 

 

House Activity and Emphasis

The twelve houses of the horoscope, particularly when they are occupied by a planet, provide a clue to areas of special activity in the child's life and development. They paint a picture of the environment in which he will work out the challenges and talents signified by the planets and aspects. Here is an analysis of house activity based on planet emphasis:

First House: Physical Appearance, How Others See Me, Personality

First House
The 1st house is the house of "Me!" How I see myself, the "me" I would like to be, and how others see me: in short, my identity. The key phrase of the first house is "I AM." This house rules our personal self and everything about us that draws a reaction from our surroundings or from others. The 1st house describes the early childhood environment (or the child's perception of it). Much of the child's identity will be a reflection of the environment in which he grows up. The child's projected image (personality) will reflect his experience and assimilation of his interaction with others. The sign on the Ascendant (1st house cusp) and its ruler (see intro.) are key components to understanding your child's emerging personality. Any planet "rising" in the 1st house is going to color the personality considerably. For example, if Neptune is in the 1st house, the child will be sensitive and impressionable, no matter what sign is on the Ascendant. A child with Venus in the 1st house is likely to be attractive and charming. Mars in the 1st house is common in the charts of athletes. Astrologers will often blend the characteristics of the Sun sign with the sign on the Ascendant. For example, a child with an Aries Sun is usually somewhat self-centered. If the child, however, has Pisces Rising then he is likely to be assertive but compassionate and interested in serving others. Sometimes, however, the child may experience a conflict; in this case, for instance, part of the child may want to jump right into new experiences (Aries) whereas another part may be shy or afraid (Pisces). The child could feel overwhelmed (Pisces) by the stern parental rebuke given in response to a typically Arian impulsive action! All this may seem very complex, but you can take it step by step. Are any of us really all that simple to understand? You will have to study well the Sun sign and the Ascendant (and the sign and house the Ruler is in) plus the nature of any planet in the 1st house. Learn the keys, be sensitive and observe the child. You will see how it all comes together.

Leo on First House Cusp
Leo energy is expressive and concerned with dramatic self-awareness and a sense of pride and ownership. Here is a sense of confidence from which the emotive and outgoing Leo energy operates. Often very artistic, and always theatrical and expressive, this sign is good for creativity and the arts. Your child may seek creative means to express himself through the affairs of the house with Leo on the cusp.

Moon in First House
Your child manages to end up in the limelight, with the support of those around him! He can get a lot of mileage out of his appearance and the way he carries himself and communicates to others. He could make his living from the public. Early home life, and particularly the relationship to the mother, colors the entire chart! Extremely sensitive, you must be patient in helping your child discipline and sort out his emotions. He may, without knowing, reflect the moods of people around him. He must be self-disciplined in eating and living habits from babyhood on!

Second House: Possesions, Talents, Resources, Sense of Self-Worth

Second House
The key phrase of the 2nd house is "I have." The 2nd house, then, deals with our material security, our means of livelihood, our resources and talents, and how we utilize the resources of this world. The 2nd house also reveals much about our values, what is valuable to us. We study this house for clues as to the child's basic attitudes and sense of self-worth. The sign on the second house cusp and any planets in the 2nd house will tell you how your child is most likely to deal with things. Here we see his attitude toward his belongings. Responsibility, stewardship, and sharing all come into play here. If your child does not have any planets in the 2nd house, look to the sign, house and aspects of the planet ruling the sign on the cusp, and to the planet Venus, for clues as to money making potential and spending habits.

Virgo on Second House Cusp
Virgo energy is analytical and precise, always separating what is worthwhile and worth supporting from that which is outmoded and of no further use. The affairs of the house with Virgo on the cusp reveal the area of life in which the child seeks to serve, and/or where he may take a systematic and detailed approach.

Third House: Communication, Early Education, Brothers & Sisters

Third House
The key phrase for the 3rd house is "I think." At no time is the 3rd house more important than during childhood. This is because the 3rd house is the house of early education. The astrologer looks to the sign on the 3rd house cusp, its ruler and any planets abiding there (and to the planet Mercury) to get a picture of the child's approach to learning. The 3rd house is a very mental house, concerned with finding, researching, communicating, and all manner of questioning. Traditionally this house rules brothers and sisters. Planets in the 3rd house can tell you something about your child's interaction with his siblings, and with neighborhood pals. Children with personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars) in the 3rd house tend to be very active at school.

Libra on Third House Cusp
Libra energy is always facilitating and responsive, assuming the appropriate reaction or response to any question or statement. This is certainly the social sign, par excellence. The affairs of the house with Libra on the cusp indicate where your child may enjoy working with a close pal; this may also be where he must learn lessons in cooperation. Libra can tie in the theme of beauty and diplomacy into the affairs of the house whose cusp it is on.

Pluto in Third House
You may nickname him, "Eagle Eye!" A good detective or research person, your child may be your best bet in finding that needle you misplaced! Children born with the research planet (Pluto) in the house of mind (3rd) often manifest an appetite for inquiry, questioning and searching and are adept at digging for some piece of information. Sometimes, there's a particularly close or difficult relationship with a brother or sister. If afflicted, Pluto's presence in the house of early schooling could point to blocks in learning that need to be surmounted.

Fourth House: Home, Family, Needs, Mother

Fourth House
The 4th house is the house of the home and family. The 4th house represents our roots and also relates to our perception of our mother. The sign on the 4th house cusp and any planets abiding here describe the early home environment. Young children yearn to feel secure within the arms of mother and father, within the walls of home. The small child fears abandonment. This house tells about the emotional foundation upon which the rest of the chart can stand or collapse. Traumatic childhood scenes take years to resolve. A memory of a nurturing and secure experience helps the adult get through many a storm. Since many of the early patterns are repeated, the fourth house (and the sign, house position and aspects of the Moon) describes how your child is likely to manage his own family one day. Land and property also come under the fourth house domain.

Scorpio on Fourth House Cusp
Scorpio is the most dynamically creative sign and the most abused! Intense, passionate, and very personal, Scorpio rushes past superficialities and right to the heart of any matter. Scorpio relates to sex, death, regeneration and resources we share with others. Scorpio energy will intensify and concentrate the affairs of the house whose cusp it sits on.

Saturn in Fourth House
This position calls for reinforcement at home from loving parents. Communication and trust need to be established from day one, else your child may feel emotionally cut off from family members. Avoid being excessively strict with this child. Sometimes Saturn's presence in the house of home (4th) points to considerable family responsibility, whether during childhood or in adult life, or both! Later (teen years) your child will profit by an afternoon job, or some responsibility outside of the home. This placement is favorable for the manufacture of domestic products, hotel management, real estate work, farming, construction, factory jobs, ecology and home businesses.

Fifth House: Self-Expression, Creativity, Giving/Receiving Love

Fifth House
The 5th house is the house of dramatic self-expression; its key phrase is "I create." Many actors have planets here. The 5th house relates to fun and recreation: planets in the 5th house plus the sign on the cusp provide clues as to what kind of recreation your child might enjoy. Fire signs may like sports, competitive games and outdoor exploration. An Earth sign on the cusp could take to nature walks, hiking, building, mechanics. For these children, work can be fun! Children with Air signs on the 5th house cusp are going to enjoy mixing with other people. A Water sign on the 5th house cusp may enjoy family outings, be attached to loved ones, find their niche through the arts. The giving and receiving of love is also connected with this house. Children with personal planets in this house (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars) feel most fulfilled when they are actively creating, sharing, expressing their emotions.

Sagittarius on Fifth House Cusp
Sagittarius is associated with religion, philosophy and travel. Your child may seek to "expand his horizons," or to express his highest ideals and personal philosophy through the affairs of the house on whose cusp Sagittarius is found.

Uranus in Fifth House
Your child is unconventional when it comes to self-expression and enjoyment. He likes to find new and different ways to express himself – possibly sports, the creative arts, dance, martial arts and such. Electronic keyboards, computer, and New Age Art could fascinate him! The child with this placement usually doesn't mind feeling a little different. If afflicted, (and especially if aspecting personal planets) he could be openly rebellious to attract attention to himself or to prove his courage to his friends. He may have a hard time doing things anyway but his own! The 5th house is the house of romance. Sometimes, Uranus' presence here indicates sudden romances, infatuations, or an off-beat approach to love. As your child matures, teach him well the rewards of lasting commitments in love and friendships, the consequences and dangers of wrong choices and impromptu relationships. This position is common in the charts of artists (especially if Venus is prominent in the chart), recording artists, television personalities, and movie actors. Uranus in the 5th house is also favorable for teachers, stock brokers, athletes, child psychologists. Sometimes, Uranus in the house of children indicates a unique approach to education. You may have gifted or somehow unusual grandchildren!

Neptune in Fifth House
Neptune in the 5th house is an artistic influence in the chart. Children with this Neptune placement often have vivid imaginations, and an ability to express ideas of a mystical or other-worldly nature. Your child may be a natural performer! Your child may enjoy music, drama, art, or dance classes and be adept at entertaining friends and adults with enchanting tales! Neptune in the house of drama can wear many masks! Make sure your child knows the difference between fact and fantasy, the mask and the real "me" inside! This child needs to express love and seeks your affection and approval. Search for other factors in the chart that would balance creativity with practicality and common sense. It's important that your child learn to see people as they really are, rather than as he would like them to be, to avoid disappointment in relationships. A born romantic, teach him discernment in his choice of companions.

Sixth House: Responsibility, Work, Health, Habits

Sixth House
The key phrase of the 6th house is "I work." That which was conceived in the 5th house is applied and produced in the 6th! In an adult chart, this house indicates employment, attitude toward work, and relationship with employees and/or co-workers. In the child's chart, we study the 6th house to understand his daily habits. How he handles his chores, how he approaches his school work. Is his handwriting sloppy or neat? Is he happy to help others when asked or does he complain? The 6th house rules dress and appearance. This house also tells us about eating habits, diet and basic health. Obviously, eating habits and diet will affect health for better or for worse, as the case may be. A water sign on the cusp, or the Moon or Neptune in the 6th indicates that emotions will affect health and vice-versa. The sign on the cusp and planets in the 6th house can show you health areas that may require your attention.

Capricorn on Sixth House Cusp
Capricorn is the business energy of the zodiac. Given to clear-headedness and practical insight, this sign takes a distanced perspective, a cool appraisal. Lessons in power may be indicated in the affairs governing the house hosting Capricorn on its cusp. Or this may be where your child is particularly willing to work hard for earned results.

Mars in Sixth House
The child with Mars in the 6th house is typically motivated when it comes to matters of care and service – taking care of details. He has an inborn desire to serve, to be useful and productive and its up to you to provide him with the necessary tools to accomplish real jobs! (i.e. child-sized hammer, shovels, egg beaters for toddlers; shovels, shopping lists, and job opportunities for older children) Having an eye for quality control, he may sooner or later show you a better way to do the very thing you've taught him! Speaking of tools, this placement favors heavy-equipment operators, steel workers and mechanical engineers. Medicine, nutrition, food services and work with textiles and/or cloth may be indicated. For some children with this placement, perfectionism becomes an obsession; others have the energy to do the work of ten. Help your child see the middle way and pursue a spiritual (rather than a human) perfection. If afflicted, friction with classmates & later with co-workers may be do to an overly demanding or critical attitude.

Seventh House: Relationships with Others

Seventh House
The 7th house is the house of partnerships, relationships, social life, and all that carries us beyond our personal self into an awareness of other people, community, and the like. Children with planets in this house seek to understand themselves through others. They are rarely alone. How does your child deal with competition? Is he able to hold his own in a match? Can he stand up against peer pressure? To succeed with 7th house issues, the child needs to feel secure within himself (1st house polarity.) Planets in the 7th house and the sign on the cusp can also provide clues about your child's interaction, as he matures, with the opposite sex. For instance, a child with Mars in this house or Aries on the cusp would likely be bold in relationships, and hence, make friends easily. Nevertheless, he could incline toward arguments and contention (Mars) in close friendships (and later in marriage). He may, however, be willing to work hard (Mars) to make a relationship (7th house) work. The wise parent would teach this child the dangers of entering into relationships impulsively.

Aquarius on Seventh House Cusp
Aquarius is the sign of brotherly love. Aquarian energy is futuristic, prophetic, communal. The focus is on the goal, and the goal is for the many, not the few. This sign tends toward independence. The house with Aquarius on the cusp sometimes indicates areas of special talents.

Eighth House: Pain, Sharing, Attitudes toward Sex

Eighth House
The 8th house is traditionally the house of death and regeneration. This is the house of surgery: where something must be removed so something else can thrive. Thus, this house also covers initiation: getting rid of excess parts of ourselves that we no longer need so we can get to the heart and deeper meaning of life. The no-nonsense quality of the eighth house makes it good for business ventures since here we are stripping away the dross to reveal the truth or essence of the subject. But what meaning does the 8th house hold for the child? Any planets in the 8th house will give a Scorpio, hence deeply subjective, coloring to the chart. The key phrase here is "We have": for the adult, the 8th house relates to shared money, property, resources. It all begins during childhood. How does your child approach sharing his things with others, in carrying out joint responsibilities. Also, how does the child deal with pain, crises, even the death of significant others? This is the house of sex, and moreover, the house of desire. Planets in the 8th house and the sign on the cusp shed light on the child's ability to attract things to himself through desire, and to let go when necessary or right.

Pisces on Eighth House Cusp
Pisces energy runs deep and toward the psychological – whatever is beneath the surface. Pisces is said to be related to the past, to memories and to karma. Pisces pertains to "hidden enemies" and also to illumination. The affairs of the house with Pisces on the cusp may signal an area of vulnerability in the chart, where your child could be subject to illusion, or where he could be particularly sensitive, intuitive and imaginative. (i.e. Pisces on the 7th house cusp could indicate disappointments in relationships, perhaps due to a tendency to attract unstable partners. On the other hand, Pisces on the 7th house cusp could indicate a sensitive, spiritual partner).

Jupiter in Eighth House
If other factors in the chart agree, your child may be a super business man! Keep your eyes open for clues; does he sign up to be class treasurer? On the other hand, the 8th house relates not only to finances (with Jupiter, finances in a BIG way) but to spiritual mysteries. Searching, delving, researching, inventing, discovering, seeing your child's life path involves cutting through appearances and superficialities and laying bare the reality of a situation. This could mean that the business world is an open book for him – easy to read. Or he may find psychology fascinating. Jupiter here may indicate a career in medicine, in emergency care. This placement also favors any work related to real estate, taxes, banking and insurance.

Ninth House: Faith, Ethics, Cultural Traditions, Higher Education

Ninth House
The 9th house covers higher education, long journeys and religion (the longest journey of all). Here is what remains of the purification that takes place in the 8th house – the seed, or essence, of an entire cycle of experience. Religion comes from a Latin word that means to bind back, and thus refers to all things that last or endure, such as the truth. Essential ideas, philosophy, and the courts of law belong here. In your child's chart, the 9th house reveals the influences shaping the child's notions of right and wrong, his search for higher meaning, where he reaches out to know more, the (life-long) evolution of his belief system. As a youth, he is apt to be more concerned with his direct experience than with abstract thoughts. From these, however, he will draw conclusions shaping his beliefs. Priests, judges, historians, college professors, philosophers and explorers often have key planets here. The child with planets in the 9th house enjoys expanding his horizons through travel.

Aries on Ninth House Cusp
Aries is the sign of the pioneer and leader. Aries energy is attention-getting and assertive, tending to provoke a response from the surroundings, from others. The house with the Aries cusp shows you in what area of life your child is most apt to be assertive, and even a bit impulsive. Here is where he can learn the lessons of patience.

Tenth House: Father, Authority Figures, Peer Status, Career Potential

Tenth House
The 10th house is the point of crystallization, what we give back to the world in concrete form: hence, the 10th house deals with career, and subsequently status and reputation. The 10th house is connected with authorities: father, government, employer, Guru. In studying the planets in the 10th house plus the sign on the 10th house cusp in the child's chart (and Saturn), we discover clues about the nature of the child's ambitions (what he wants to do and who he wants to be when he grows up), how he deals with authorities, how he handles responsibility, and his relationship with his father or dominant parent. The child's way of dealing with his elders during childhood obviously will be transferred to dealing with his boss later on! Children with planets in the 10th house may be thinking ahead. Children with the Sun, Jupiter or Saturn or many planets in the 10th house often want to be someone of consequence in this world! The 10th house relates to Saturn and hence to maturation through time. Sometimes planets in the 10th house (especially the Sun or Saturn) indicate a need for much training before reaching the career goal.

Taurus on Tenth House Cusp
Taurus energy is stable. Here is where your child is likely to be resourceful, where talent may lie! He could perhaps make money from the issues related to this house. Taurus is the way we "have" things, how we possess and acquire things. The house cusp can tell you where the child might need to learn the lessons of obedience or non-attachment.

Eleventh House: Friends, Aspirations, Community

Eleventh House
We have been on the mountain and had a vision (10th house). In the 11th, we bond with others who share our vision and can help us realize it. Thus, this is the house of friends and community life. The young child is greatly influenced by his companions. As he matures (and particularly during pre-adolescence and teen-age years), peer pressure and conformity may take precedence over parental guidelines in his mind. Planets in this house and the sign on the 11th house cusp indicate what traits your child may admire in a friend and the kind of friends he is likely to attract. For example, if Uranus is in the 11th house or if Aquarius is on the cusp, the child would attract friends who are unique, unusual, somehow different. If Gemini is on the cusp, he may enjoy having many friends, but could be fickle. Traditionally, the 11th house is called the house of "hopes and wishes." The 11th house provides clues as to how to tune into the child's aspirations; how to teach him goal-fittedness; how to measure our projected aspirations for him against his own! The 11th house also addresses the child's willingness (or lack of it) to cooperate with others in group projects.

Gemini on Eleventh House Cusp
Gemini is concerned with connections and communication of all kinds; letters, wires, telephones, voice, thoughts, writing, and mental processes in general. Gemini is the gadfly, the communicator, the busy-body of the zodiac. The Gemini cusp can reveal in what area of life your child is apt to show curiosity, mental interest and diversity.

Sun in Eleventh House
Your child's innate idealism and love for humanity can blossom in group or community work, especially if he is in a leadership role. Friendships mean a lot to him. Anything that is altruistic or serves the common good – that's where he can be found. Scouts or 4 H Club could afford him the opportunity to work with groups. Your child strives to make his dreams and ideals real. This position lends itself to change and reformation, and therefore is not uncommon in the charts of politicians! Often there is a love of electronics and inventions. This placement also relates to acting, broadcasting and flying.

Mercury in Eleventh House
The child born with Mercury in the 11th house tends to idealistic. His mind runs to humanitarian values and thoughts of what could (and should) be – Utopia! He likes to exchange ideas with his friends and is more prone to establish friendships for mental stimulation rather than purely social reasons. If well aspected, this child has an open mind and converses with people of all different backgrounds. He likes to put his ideas to work in the world, making dreams real. He may be interested in participating in clubs at school or in taking on a position in student government. Especially (but not necessarily) if in Aquarius, scientific ability is almost always present. With hard aspects, your child's ideas may be eccentric, radical, or impractical. Many electricians have Mercury here. This placement is also favorable for politics, theater, science, flying, electronics, computers and group work.

Twelth House: Fears, Fantasies, Imagination, Compassion

Twelfth House
The 12th house is called the house of endings. This house is considered "karmic" in that here, within the layers of the subconscious, are buried the records of the past. The 12th house relates to fears and "hidden enemies": fears born of past memories. Here to we also uncover hidden strengths and the courage and illumination to transcend our fears. The 12th house relates to the imagination. A child with many planets in the 12th house could be extremely imaginative but could be so sensitive as to withdraw. Music, meditation, dance and art are good ways to bring 12th house children out of the "retreats." The sign on the 12th house cusp can tune you into potential areas of vulnerability in your child's psychic make-up, hidden fears, as well as hidden talent waiting to be drawn out! The 12th house shows the inclination to sacrifice for others. Many or key planets in this house could signify a career in medicine, social work, or behind the scenes production.

Cancer on Twelfth House Cusp
Cancer is the mother of the zodiac, always making a home, protecting and providing for others. The house with Cancer on the cusp is where your child is likely to look for security. The child could be particularly sensitive to the issues of that house.

Venus in Twelfth House
The child with Venus in the 12th house is typically kind-hearted, compassionate, imaginative, and concerned with the welfare of others. He can appreciate their difficulties and be understanding of the problems they may be having. Many a friend may cry on his shoulder! He is prone to a certain amount of self-sacrifice. He will need to learn not to let others take advantage of his good nature (and not to feel sorry for himself if they do!) If your child is shy, this is due to extreme sensitivity, and he may need your help in strengthening his sense of self-esteem. This is a potentially creative placement, possibly indicating talent in writing, arts or film. When un-channeled (into creative work), Venus here could manifest as fantasy, escapism and wool-gathering. Because of his caring nature, this child may be attracted to working in hospitals or spiritual retreats when he is older. He may be naturally devotional and would benefit by early religious training. Many producers and actors have Venus in the 12th house.
