Woman to Woman
An Astrological Portrait
Prepared for Stewart, Martha
astrological chart provides an amazing guidepost to the most important aspect
of your life: an understanding of yourself. As a woman today, you face the
challenge of discovering yourself within the context of many life experiences.
You wear a variety of faces and play many roles, experiences which can both
enhance and complicate your feeling of satisfaction with yourself and your
life. Your astrological chart provides indicators which help to define who you
are, strengthening an understanding of your needs on every level. Each chart is
different in its make-up, and the myriad combinations of influences help to
underscore the importance of each person as an individual. One thing you must
remember when working with astrology: it is through your free will that you
make choices. Your "chart" does not make you do anything!
finally acknowledging and realizing within today's world, that men and women
experience life differently. The workings of your psyche, symbolized by your
astrological chart, are likely to be experienced quite differently through your
filter as a woman than they would be if you were born male. This report is
designed for you, a woman in a world of change, a woman seeking to become
or birth, chart is made up of several factors. Drawn upon a circular wheel,
your natal chart shows the positions of the planets relative to your place,
date and time of birth. Everything is indicated symbolically, with each symbol
having specific meanings. The planets, Sun and Moon are placed around the
circle, and each is placed within a particular degree of a sign of the zodiac.
The planets, Sun and Moon are energy bodies, and the astrological signs
indicate how these energies work. Just as you are a complex of feelings, needs,
drives and desires - your natal chart maps these qualities. You will also
notice that the planetary symbols fall within particular segments of the
circle. These segments, called "Houses", indicate the specific
environments and relationships which are part of your life. You may find, upon
reading your report, that there are a few contradictions. For example, one
factor may indicate independence, while another shows strong dependency. It is
not unusual to experience contradictions within yourself, and that is just what
your chart illustrates about you! But when you reflect upon these qualities
within the context in which they are explained, you may discover some
self-illuminating facts about yourself. Self-understanding has a marvelous way
of emphasizing your personal power!
An Overall Glimpse
at Your Astrological Chart
astrological signs are defined by one of four elements: fire, earth, air or
water. The fire and air elements have a yang (masculine polarity) quality, and
tend to be more outgoing and assertive in their nature, whereas the earth and
water elements have a yin (feminine polarity) quality, and are more receptive
by nature. The elemental balance in your chart is determined by the amount of
energy within each elemental sign. The factors added together to find this
balance of energy include the Sun, Moon, planets and the angles of the
Ascendant and Midheaven.
and earth both very strong in your chart, you may be especially creative, and
are focused on achieving high levels of productivity. You definitely make an
impact on the people in your life, and can leave a lasting impression. Instead
of waiting for life to happen to you, you prefer to create life on your terms,
and may need to be more attentive to the responses of people who are in your
path on the way to achieving the realization of your dreams. This combination
of elements has been described as a steamroller type of personality, so keep
that in mind before you take off on your next major project! The elemental
balance in your astrological chart shows that water is a weak factor. Emotional
situations can be rather uncomfortable for you, although you may be somewhat
fascinated by others who display their feelings readily. The world of your
inner self, your emotional self, can seem tremendously difficult for you at
times, and if you're overwhelmed by emotion, you may find yourself shutting
down in order to keep your feelings under control in order to avoid pain. Your
best therapy is to deal with your feelings, and to acknowledge them. And you
may also need to be more attentive to the feelings of others, or you could be
accused of being cold or uncaring. Self-sufficiency is one thing, but total
distance can be quite lonely. Stimulate your emotional nature in a positive
sense by getting into the water element and enjoying it. Swim, take long
soaking baths, or let yourself walk outside in the rain on a warm day. And if
you're really feeling brave, rent a tear-jerker movie, make a cup of tea, grab
your hankies and close the door.
aspect of your basic nature is determined by the balance of the modes in your
chart. The modes are also defined by sign, which are grouped together as either
cardinal, fixed or mutable. You have fixed energy strongest, which helps to
account for your ability to stay with a project, relationship or idea until you
are satisfied or until your responsibility is fulfilled. The downfall of this
strength is not knowing when to let go, and you can be quite stubborn when
facing the possibility of change or challenge. Your strongest mode of energy is
mutable, conferring a powerful sense of adaptability to your personality. Your
flexibility is your strength, but your distractible nature is your weakness.
Sometimes you may feel like a circus juggler with too many objects in the air
at one time, and you may need to constantly remind yourself to focus on the
task at hand instead of leaving something midstream. Your weakest link is in
cardinality, which indicates that you sometimes feel reluctant to get started,
especially in new situations.
view the whole picture of your chart, you'll see that there is an emphasis of
planets on the left side of your chart. This hemisphere strength indicates that
you are driven by a need for independence and autonomy, and that you feel most
validated when you feel that you're living life on your own terms. You may find
it difficult to allow others to support or help you, even when you want them to
lend a hand, and can certainly have trouble asking for assistance (especially
if you feel it diminishes your sense of self to do so!). Relationships can be
difficult for you unless you are in a situation which allows equanimity and
equality, but be careful of your tendency to want to take the lead all of the
time. True equality means that both partners are powerful.
also be concerned with the areas in your chart which appear to be empty. Never
fear, these houses are not really vacant! You are just not placing as much
emphasis in these relationships or environments, or you may be satisfying these
needs through other dimensions of your life.
Projection of Your
showing the world who you really are is not easy, and sometimes the world may
not respond as you had hoped! It's helpful to take a look at the differences
and similarities between the attitudes, impressions and images you project and
the person who resides at the core of your being.
Sun in Leo you're likely to radiate a sense of regality and power, even if
you're just sitting at home in your old jeans. Although you may not demand to
be the center of attention, you can certainly carry it off when the spotlight
is on you. You're driven by a need to create and express yourself, and enjoy
playful people and situations. When challenged your pride can get in your way
unless you develop some objectivity about yourself, which can be a tough job if
you're too self-absorbed. It's okay to think of yourself as royalty some of the
time, but just remember that others may not see you that way!
Ascendant is the face you present to the world, and shows how others see you.
Your Ascendant, or rising sign, is Gemini. You may always appear young and are
certainly likely to be young in your attitudes, regardless of your age. Others
may see you as intelligent and witty, and your interest in a wide variety of
ideas and people can certainly help you develop a cosmopolitan air. Whether or
not you talk a lot, you are a communicator. Pay attention to your hands and
facial movements. You have a lot to say! The energy associated with your
Ascendant is Mercury. With Mercury in Cancer, you may appear to be a good
listener, and when you do speak your mind, the feeling behind what you say is
difficult to ignore.
is in opposition to your Ascendant, which can indicate that you have conflicts
between what you need for yourself and what others demand or need from you. You
may also place too much emphasis on living your life based upon taking care of
others, and may feel emotionally drained as a result. Part of the undercurrent
of this energy comes from wanting to be connected or needing a partner. This is
perfectly okay as long as you create relationships in which your needs and
desires count, too. But watch for a tendency for things to get one-sided, and
remember to give yourself ample opportunities to fulfill your own needs.
Sun in sextile aspect to your Ascendant, you can be quite effective in meeting
life on your own terms. Positions of respect and authority feel natural to you,
and you can be an excellent leader. Applying your natural talents and abilities
is easy for you, so easy, in fact, that you may not take full advantage of your
in semi-square aspect to your Ascendant, indicating that you may not display
full confidence or trust in your own intellectual abilities. One of the best
ways to deal with this dilemma is to develop your communication skills more
fully and effectively. You may even find it helpful to take a few risks by
entering into conversations with people you may not know very well. Challenge
your mind by reading or studying material which is outside your everyday
interests in order to expand your thinking. But most of all, make an effort to
listen carefully or think through things before you automatically react to
in square aspect to your Ascendant you may continually underestimate your worth
or value as a person. You may have fallen victim to the idea that your
appearance is the only key to your beauty and, whether or not you think you are
physically attractive, may never be quite satisfied with the way you look. On a
deeper level, you may be dealing with a sense of inadequacy which may stem from
a feeling that you are not lovable. Being lovable begins with the way you feel
about yourself, and by becoming more accepting and loving toward yourself, you
nurture the true essence of love - which resides at the core of your inner
self. You may also struggle with the experience of putting yourself at risk or
putting forth effort in order to achieve the realization of your desires. You
may find that you actually appreciate something more if you attain it through
your own efforts than if it were simply given to you.
in sextile aspect to your Ascendant you may be a hard worker and are likely to
be in continual motion. You're happiest when you are in active pursuit of
something, and your energetic attitudes can frustrate those who always want to
keep things quiet. Channeling some of this energy into fitness is a good option
since you may become emotionally agitated and restless if you develop a
Jupiter conjunct your Ascendant, you are a natural promoter. When you believe
in something, you're likely to let everyone know, and your enthusiasm can
inspire others to follow your lead. Others cannot help but see your optimism
and faith in the future. You can also be somewhat self-indulgent and need to
watch a tendency to think that you should have absolutely everything you want.
This can be especially problematic in the weight-gain department, since knowing
when to say, "No," is not always easy for you. Physiologically, your
body may expand much easier than it contracts!
many different facets of the Moon in your chart. But when it comes to your
identity, your Moon speaks volumes about who you are at the deepest level: the
soul of your being. Your Sagittarius Moon shines through as a quality of
wisdom, adventure and spirituality. Despite all the outside distractions, your
real self is striving to achieve a true sense of truth, honesty and integrity.
Deep within yourself you are the Wise Woman and will open most gracefully to
those individuals and circumstances which allow you to express and develop this
part of yourself. To do this you need one thing above all else: true freedom.
It's easier said than done!
Inner Feminine Self
the temptation is to think that just because you are a woman you are in touch
with your inner feminine self, this is a much more complicated task than it
appears to be! First of all, the model for the true power of femininity has been
lost over recent history and is now becoming re-energized. Recovering this
power is a personal task for each woman, and learning to use feminine power
constructively on a collective level is another challenge for today's woman.
This process is the cradle of self-healing, and provides the essence of your
energies associated with your inner feminine self are the Moon and Venus, but
Neptune and Pluto are also significant in your experience and expression of
this part of your psyche. The Moon is the energy which filters through your
subconscious self, and tells the story of your connection to the part of you
which provides nurturing, support, care and comfort. The person who projects
the model for your Moon energy is your mother, and you see her through the lens
of your own emotional matrix, signified by the Moon. As you mature, you learn
to send this energy into the world, but to be truly effective, you must first
own this energy and know how to use it to care for yourself!
your Sagittarius Moon, you yearn to find your sense of home, comfort and inner
peace through developing knowledge. You may hope to experience horizons which
reach beyond what you knew as a child. Your mother may have inspired you to
reach beyond your limitations, or you may have seen her as a teacher who seemed
to have the answers for everything. Even as a young girl, your mind could reach
into the possibility of what life was like in other parts of the world, as you
are becoming a whole woman, an interest in other cultures may even stimulate
your desire to travel to other lands or to learn different languages. The real
thirst you feel is to know Truth. Your search for truth may be found through
your dedication to building a strong spiritual foundation in your life. But you
may also find that truth resides in accepting and embracing cultural diversity.
You're most comfortable when you can be candid, and may surprise people with
your brash and outgoing nature. Sometimes, you may feel that "femininity"
is the last thing you possess, but your brand of feminine self is comfortable
standing toe to toe with men in the world - so what if you have lace on your
boots! Your moods are usually optimistic, since the future is a consideration
for you in any situation. Isn't that what your Mom might have said?
Moon in a supportive trine aspect to your Sun, you may be quite capable of
integrating the masculine and feminine elements of your psyche. This indicates
that your experience of relationships between men and women has not been
especially difficult. In fact, you may have a strong connection to both your
mother and father. Your experience of life as a woman is not likely to seem
especially limited, since you may be quite comfortable dealing with the world on
your own terms without feeling that you have to be in conflict on gender
issues. Self-respect and sincerity radiate through your personality, and men
and women alike may respond to your requests or leadership. But you may not
feel particularly motivated to achieve high levels of success, since it might
seem easier to take the easier road. This is fine as long as you're happy with
your life. But if you feel you want or need more, you may simply need to get
moving and set your sights on options which will allow continual growth on
of your Moon in square aspect to Venus stimulates a feeling of discontent. You
feel internal conflict when you want what you cannot have, and can be caught in
the throes of emotional turmoil when you are faced with letting go of one
situation in order to move into something different. That old adage, "you
can't have your cake and eat it too," applies to the type of dilemma you
frequently face, especially in the realm of relationships. When faced with
compromise, you feel depleted. Yet you may also fail to allow yourself to
really go for the things you want, since the fear of losing something that
valuable can be overwhelming. You are highly susceptible to emotional
blackmail, and may be reluctant to admit it when you feel strongly for someone
because you don't want to be vulnerable. All these attempts to keep yourself
protected act like a barrier against your happiness. And until you address your
fears of intimacy, you may never have a fully functional relationship. You
could gain exceptional benefit from studying human psychology and learning
about human behavior. Working in a therapeutic group situation could also
provide methods for you to understand the manner in which you relate to others
and they relate to you. Then, you can ultimately risk developing a gradual
intimacy. A female friendship provides a safe starting place, since part of
your frustration arises from a lack of trust of yourself as a woman. Sharing
your feelings and thoughts with a friend, and taking responsibility for
becoming a good friend yourself, will help you overcome the barriers which may
have been in place since you were a young girl. Jumping into an intimate
relationship before you've learned to trust yourself and your feelings can leave
you vulnerable, and may even expose your mate to your unresolved issues.
Moon in trine aspect to Mars, you can be quite confident about expressing your
feelings and asserting yourself in a positive manner. Your knack for dealing
with people is excellent, and you can be quite effective dealing with men on
your own terms. You are likely to find the male-female dance quite interesting
and enjoyable, and the differences between men and women are more intriguing to
you than they are perplexing. As a mother, you can be especially supportive,
since you enjoy dealing with your children on their level and generate an
atmosphere of safe support, creativity and fun. In relationships, you are not
likely to hesitate about expressing the way you feel, and can show all your
emotions, including anger, without worrying if they are
"acceptable." Since you take
yourself at face value, you may also have the same approach to dealing with
others, which makes for a great ingredient in any relationship.
Your Moon is
in opposition to Jupiter, adding a strong sense of optimism and a desire to see
life getting better and better. You can also get yourself into trouble if your
expectations are not fulfilled, and need to learn the importance of setting
reasonable limits. This includes limits on eating, spending and doing things
for other people. Now, you don't have to become a miser, in fact, you probably
could never carry it off, since somewhere, somehow, your generous nature would
spill out. And you've probably learned that excessive restraint is not
particularly effective for you either, since you need a few indulgences here
and there. Finding the balance point is
the key: and that relies upon your setting those limitations. Yes, you can move
the limits if you discover that you can handle it; and you really have to
remain alert to your expectations about yourself and others. It's easy to feel
that you would be happier if only you had more, or if only you could do more,
become more or experience more. Finding a positive channel for this need to
push the limits is absolutely necessary, or you may discover that you are never
satisfied with yourself. As a mother, you can be an amazing and inspiring
guide, supporter and teacher. But you need to remember to allow your children to
grow at their own rate, and to live their lives in a manner which fulfills
their needs for personal expression.
Moon in square aspect to Neptune, your imagination is highly active, and your
emotional responses can be especially dramatic. Your emotional sensitivity can
range to extremes from ecstasy to despair, and you can respond just as
powerfully to an imaginary stimulus as to something "real." Your idea of reality can be somewhat
different from the norm because you feel the vibrations of everything around
you. But since you are functioning on the physical plane, it is important for
you to learn to distinguish physical reality from the reality which is beyond
the physical. Once you've accomplished this, you can draw more reasonable
emotional boundaries, and can feel much more in control of your life. You also
need these boundaries in order to avoid being used or abused by others in your
life. Your compassion can be a wonderful thing, and ministering to the needs of
others does, indeed, fill your soul. You may have difficulty separating your
feelings from the emotions and feelings of others, and can find it difficult to
walk away from the situations which you must leave behind. Your yearning for a
soulmate can lead you to see only what you want to see in the man you love,
instead of accepting him for what he is. In relationships, you are quite prone
to high levels of co-dependency or addictive behavior patterns, and may be the
one who ends up falling victim to another's emotional instability unless you
learn to give yourself some psychological space. This is not as easy to do as
it sounds, because when you are attached to someone, you can be very deeply
attached. But sacrificing yourself to the needs of another, especially if they
are self-abusive or if they are abusing you, can destroy your spirit.
Developing skills in meditation, contemplation and other self-reflective
techniques can help you feel more connected to the core of your inner self, and
may impart the objectivity you need to determine if you are in a situation
which can allow you to make your dreams come true, or if you're in a living
nightmare. Spending time developing your creative or artistic interests can
have a similar strengthening effect upon your psyche.
is in the First Quarter Moon Phase of the lunation cycle, indicating that you
approach the fulfillment of your desires and needs by taking action. The
frustration of waiting for someone else to get something started may leave you
feeling that you're always the one who blazes the trails. You do get a rush
from forging ahead, and may even accomplish greater growth in the process. The
frameworks you are creating can not only sustain you, but may also become part
of the social system. The archetypal quality associated with this moon phase is
that of the "Wild Woman", a quality which is expressed in an
uninhibited form of sexual and spiritual energy. Through this quality, your
passion drives you to experience life as an erotic satisfying experience,
unfettered by the restraints others may so easily embrace. Your willfulness may
also be rather intense, and sometimes you may feel that you are at odds with
yourself. Many of the old habits, attitudes and teachings you learned as a
young girl may seem obsolete, since you're more likely to want to create your
life on your own terms. There is a thread which continues throughout your life
which binds you to all you have been and
to the traditions which forged your foundations. Crisis is definitely something
you understand, since you not only experienced it in your early years, but seem
to attract it now. You have a healthy respect for the power of crisis - which
is the peak moment of change - since you know it leads to a new phase of
experience and opportunity.
energy of Venus you express your feminine wiles, and also locate the part of
yourself that needs to be emotionally expressive. Your sense of inner beauty
and feelings of personal worth are also functions of Venus. Venusian energy is
part of your connection to other women, and the placement of Venus in your
chart can tell you a lot about your openness and acceptance of your own
femininity. Although your Moon may indicate your basic emotional nature, the
manner by which you express your feelings is frequently through Venusian
energy of Venus in Virgo you love the simple things of life. Your delight in
the beauty of spring flowers, a kitty's warm purr, a baby's soft skin and the
wrinkled smile around your lover's eyes make life worthwhile. Little escapes
your eye for detail, and you appreciate excellent workmanship and
self-expression. Your own natural beauty radiates best when unencumbered by
excess, and you may sparkle in soft colors and elegantly tailored attire.
Comfortable, soft, flowing garments may be your preference whenever possible,
but you can also look great in a silk suit. You may have little time or
tolerance for excess, and although you may enjoy romance, may not go out of
your way to create it. However, you do know what you like, and once you've
developed trust in a close relationship, may be quite open about your
preferences. It's easy for you to be overly critical of yourself and others,
partly because you notice everything and have such definitive taste and favorites.
You can also be tolerant, although you have to work to develop this skill to
its fullest extent. You may find it difficult to experience the love you dream
about, especially if the guy who catches your eye turns out to have dirty
fingernails. Give him a bar of soap and see how he cleans up before you strike
him from your list entirely.
expectations of yourself are quite powerful. Stimulated by the square between
Venus and Jupiter, you may be rather flamboyant in your manner and may not know
when you've had too much of a good thing. Setting limits is difficult and
frustrating, since in your heart you may believe that anything is possible. If
you see yourself in unrealistic proportions, or if you expect impossible things
from life, you may feel continually disappointed. You might even try to make up
for the deficiencies by overindulging yourself or overspending. There's nothing
wrong with optimism, but there is a difference between optimism and unrealistic
expectation. Learning that lesson is one of your challenges, and if you are to
have the faith in yourself that you deserve, you'll have to face it. Believing
that having enough money or status will make up for a lack of personal worth
can get you started on the wrong foot. Try again. You are a creative, witty and
visionary woman with a lot to offer. Now, that's a good beginning.
the planets Neptune and Pluto move very slowly and are generational in nature,
they do have an influence upon your psyche. These energies define much about
the collective experience which shapes your inner self. You're experiencing
Neptunian energy when you're in the midst of reverie, when you're deep in
dreams and when you're feeling compassionate. Neptune drives your imagination,
the realm of illusion and your psychic sensibilities. Because Neptune is
difficult to grasp on a physical level, there is a lot about this energy that
can be problematic, and when you are caught in the negative grasp of Neptune,
you can give in to addictive behaviors, escapism and deception manifesting. But
you do have a way of channeling this energy. It is through Neptune that you
find the heart of compassionate love and understanding. This is the doorway to
your inner self.
Neptune in Virgo, you are part of the generation of women born from 1928 to
1943 who have understood the importance of developing and maintaining sound
minds and bodies. In the perfect world envisioned by your generation, health,
good education and clean environments are extremely valuable - and you have
individually and collectively instilled this attitude into the developments in
modern society. Your role as a woman in the world has also been influenced by a
strong desire to learn and to become proficient in dealing with the world. The
vision of sound health on every level held by your generation is still
powerfully influential in the development of educational models, health
facilities and other institutions which support the betterment of life on
represents the primordial essence. It is from this level that all
transformation occurs: birth, death, illness and healing. It is also here that
the powerful kundalini force continually regenerates itself. This is the space
of all creation and all power. It is the space of origin: the Great Mother.
in Leo, you are part of a generation of women born 1938 - 1957 who have had to
learn about manifesting power and breaking the illusion of the patriarchy. You
are among the women who have reshaped society. If you've developed a career,
you may have done so against an old system. Instead of destroying that power
base, your task within the collective is to change the nature of power through
love and creativity, and through honoring the sanctity of life.
Owning Your Inner
centuries, women were not allowed to assert themselves in the world, and
carefully learned the role of supporter of their "men." Those who
failed to respond in this manner were frequently shunned or punished, although
there have always been women who defied convention! During this century
particularly, women have broken out of their strictly "conventional"
roles, and have been making their way in the world. Because of this, women have
been successful at fulfilling more of their needs, and owning their own power
more readily. As a result, a woman's relationship with the men in her life has
also changed. Despite women's collective knowledge about the need to be whole
persons, it is still sometimes easier to allow men (fathers, brothers, lovers
and husbands) to "own" certain qualities. (They, in turn, prefer that
women own certain qualities - like emotions!) But to become truly whole and
functional, it is necessary to find and incorporate your inner masculine self
into your sense of wholeness, instead of projecting that part of yourself onto
others (most usually men) in your life.
process of becoming at home with your ego, you gain a true sense of personal
strength and power. To own this power, you must learn to acknowledge that it is
okay to be recognized for who and what you are. Your Sun energy is the primary
factor in the expression of ego needs. As a young girl, you may have seen your
father through the filter of your Sun. His power of getting out into the world,
and the manner by which he did it, have shaped your own sense of personal
identity. And today, the Sun in your chart may symbolize significant men. But
this energy is, in itself, the core of your spirit.
you're no stranger to the spotlight, you've probably had ample opportunities to
express your assertiveness and personal strength. Your Leo Sun is a magnet for
attention, and your actions and attitudes determine whether or not that
attention is helpful or detrimental. You have the potential to radiate a
powerful energy and may be an inspiration to those who need a stable source of
confirmation that life is, indeed, okay. You can be intimidating to men who are
unsure of themselves and may even take advantage of this; just try to remember
your own insecurity when you first faced raw power! Taking on the challenge of
leadership can be one of your most fulfilling experiences, although you can be
quite domineering in some situations. If you've been giving away your power to
the men in your life, you have probably attracted strong-willed individuals. But
to become truly complete, you must learn to embrace and express your own
individuality in a manner which opens your creativity and fills your heart.
ability to assert yourself and pursue the fulfillment of your needs and desires
is strengthened through the energy of your Sun in trine aspect to Mars. When
you find yourself in situations which require you to take positions of
leadership, you are quite capable of rising to the challenge. When you feel you
need support, you can also reach out to others who will enjoy sharing the
experience with you. Understanding that you are a strong woman and allowing
yourself to test your strength in pursuit of your aims brings renewed vitality
into your life.
confident, optimistic attitude supports your ability to express your personal
assertiveness. The energy of the Sun in sextile to Jupiter strengthens your
ability to act with conviction and hopefulness. You may also be quite
accessible - comfortable with yourself, radiating a friendly, easygoing
attitude. Both men and women may find you easy to be around, although you may
be more interested in some of the pursuits considered "masculine,"
like politics, sales or sports. You like your masculine side, and that works to
don't have to fix all the men in the world, but with the influence of your Sun
in semisquare aspect to Neptune, you surely can attract needy, addicted, or
unreliable men. The more aware you are of your needs to take charge of your
personal identity, the less you will project onto men. Strangely enough, you'll
also begin to attract a different quality of men, who may still be needy or
wounded, but are working on themselves. You may feel most powerful when you're
playing the role of either victim or rescuer, but be careful. In these
scenarios, there are usually no winners.
You may be
tempted to allow your life to be absorbed by the will and expectation of the
men you love, from father to lover to husband. You may even have had an
experience early in your life which
tested your ability to survive. In truth, the conjunction between your Sun and
Pluto indicates that you need to know what it is to express the charisma and
intrigue which are the essence of your power as a woman. Men may be both
fascinated and overwhelmed by your intensity, and you're likely to stir up a
bit of controversy with anyone who is uncomfortable with their emotions,
including their sexuality. As you fully integrate the essence of your will and
drive with your need to create change, you can become an effective healer and
powerful catalyst for growth.
is assertive, aggressive and combative, and can be angry. These are not
"feminine" qualities. In fact, women who possess and project these
qualities from within themselves often get bad names, and are called
"ball-busters," or other expletives, by the men who are dealing with
them. But to become fully whole, you need to accept the manner in which you can
utilize your Mars energy so that you are confident and strong with it, and so
you can get into the world and make things happen for yourself!
the fulfillment of your needs and desires is something you do with great
courage and strong assertiveness. With Mars in Aries, you learned early that
you like to do things that are challenging. Whether you're involved in sports,
career pursuits, or building a family - you're the woman who will forge ahead
despite the odds. You may also be quite comfortable expressing your anger,
openly and directly. Who say's it's not ladylike?
You get an
extra boost of confidence and courage with Mars in sextile aspect to Jupiter.
You may find it much easier to take a stand, instead of relying on someone else
(like a man!) to fight your battles. And
if you have something to say, you much prefer to speak your mind, although
sometimes actions do speak louder than words.
You may be
very disciplined, at least some of the time, with Mars semisquare Saturn. It's
that "some of the time" which is at the core of the problem.
Consistent effort is not your strong suit unless you really want what you're
going after. When you want something badly enough, you can be quite persistent,
sometimes to the point of compulsive. If you expect that men are the only ones
who are really supposed to be responsible for all the difficult concerns in
life, you'll be frustrated when you realize that he (or they!) are taking
charge. You can be quite good at being in charge once you learn the difference
between focus and restraint. Until you are taking responsibility for your own
actions, you are only functioning in a limited capacity. Fearing the effects of
taking assertive action is a denial of your own power and stifles the
development of your inner masculine strengths.
energies of Mars and Uranus are in semisquare aspect, illustrating one dimension
of your rebellious personality. You may wait until you've had it to the brim
before you act, which can be quite disruptive to your own life and to the lives
of those around you. Learning to express your discontent or frustrations when
they arise can help you vent your anger more effectively and may even confer a
more positive sense of self-direction. If you're around angry males, you may
feel a lack of control or direction because of their disruptive actions and
attitudes. Once you begin to exercise your needs for autonomy and independence,
you'll see your relationships changing. Taking a stand can be very empowering,
and initiating change will free your spirit.
and learning are lifelong processes. Your approach to developing your intellect
is multifaceted, but there are special indicators in your astrological chart
which help you understand the best ways to develop your mentality. Improving
and strengthening communication skills is also part of developing your mind,
since connecting to others is certainly improved if you can effectively
illustrate your point of view!
the energy of Mercury is traditionally considered to be the main indicator of
your mentality, there are also other qualities which are part of your mental
and intellectual self. First, let's look at Mercury, which is the energy
through which you link your thoughts and ideas with others. You are a receptive
thinker with Mercury in Cancer and can use your convictions and personal
feelings about someone or something to your advantage when you need to express
your ideas. You may have a photographic memory, with outstanding abilities to
recall anything you've seen or learned. If you really want to remember
something, see it in your mind. Your ability to recall the details can be quite
amazing. Although you can be a little sentimental, and may love romantic
stories and songs, you can be objective when necessary. You may be a first
class storyteller, with an excellent ability to use different inflections in
to be socially correct can get in the way of saying what you really want to say
with Mercury in semi-square aspect to Venus. You may also be too sensitive to
the way others communicate with you, and if confronted with harsh or abrasive
behavior, may have difficulty dealing with the person or situation. However,
this influence does stimulate an interest in developing you communicative and
and focusing your mind is supported by the energy of Mercury in sextile aspect
to Saturn. You learn best in situations which follow a pattern and allow
practical experience to play a part in developing your understanding or skills.
When necessary you can also do very well studying a subject on your own,
although you may truly appreciate the guidance of a dedicated teacher or
imagination is easily stimulated with Mercury in sextile aspect to Neptune.
Self-expression flows readily, and writing, music, painting and photography can
all be worthwhile avenues for you to express your ideas and view of the world.
You may be an excellent mimic and talented actress.
of your Moon also has a mental component. The Moon is the realm of thought, the
process of subconscious thinking, and plays a strong role in intuitive
thinking. Through your Sagittarius Moon, you are most drawn to subjects which
appeal to your higher nature. You cannot separate your feeling for the natural
order of things from the way you learn. You may be most interested in subjects
which are philosophical and which provide pathways to understanding the greater
truths of life and laws of the nature and the universe. Always on a quest, you
may be fascinated with knowledge and wisdom but can be uncomfortable if you
have to focus on any one subject for too long.
also plays an important role in learning, stimulating you to look ahead into
the realm of possibility, beyond the horizon of the now. Through the energy of
Jupiter, you share what you know with others. As a woman, you are likely to
feel most at home when you use this energy to encourage and support others, but
you can also apply this to yourself! Your philosophical approach to life and
learning is rather eclectic with Jupiter in Gemini - kind of live and let live
in your attitudes. You may also appreciate the diversity of ideas and cultures
existing on the planet and can benefit from exploring them. Sometimes, you may
think you have to know about all of them, but the important part may be to
discover the link between the many schools of thought and cultures on our
world. Oh, that's right, you're not limited to this world... what about life in
other galaxies? How do they run their cities? Now, that should really get you
in your ability to learn is stimulated through the energy of the Sun in sextile
aspect to Jupiter. This can also indicate a positive relationship with your
teachers, and may stimulate your own desire to share what you know with others.
You enjoy the feeling of reaching beyond your limitations through developing
in sextile aspect to Jupiter your eagerness to explore new vistas is
strengthened. This is literally a courageous approach to learning, and you
might even enjoy pitting your ideas against another just for the fun of it.
After all, that sense of expansion through competition is what this aspect is
curiosity about the way things work is stimulated by Jupiter in semi-square to
Pluto. You're not likely to be satisfied with blanket explanations of anything.
You want to turn over a few rocks, particularly in the philosophical
department, and to find out what's lurking underneath. This is okay, but the
manner by which you do it makes all the difference in the results!
of Saturn is to provide clarity, structure, form and discipline - elements
which are certainly important to learning. Saturn functions primarily as your
inner teacher. Mothers are the most influential Saturnian models in western
society. They provide the structure, guidance and support for their children in
the realms of learning, socialization or personal growth. Once you enter
society as a child, teachers play the Saturnian role. But the role of mothers
and teachers in relationship to Saturn is to help you define the structure upon
which you will build your life. Then, you "own" your Saturn, and know
how to discipline and focus your own energy.
You may not
enjoy school with Saturn in Taurus. Better yet, you probably do not enjoy
tests. But when you have a chance to prove yourself, you can be stubbornly
persistent until you've achieved satisfaction. Your sense of structure is
amazing, and you may be quite adept at growing things. Try to apply your
understanding of the processes of nature to your own development.
of your chart which are connected most strongly to mental and intellectual
development are the 3rd, 9th and 11th Houses. The 3rd House of your chart deals
with communication and the development of concepts.
for you to communicate and share ideas about things which stimulate your
emotions with Cancer ruling your 3rd House. You may also have a high memory
capacity, thinking in terms of whole pictures. However, you may not really be a
good student, because you would prefer to "absorb" information; it
seems so much easier that way. You do absorb a lot, but when you need facts,
may regret that you neglected to fire up the old brain cells. With the Moon
ruling your 3rd House, you are most likely to share your ideas with people who
feel familiar and safe. You also prefer to communicate with passion and
feeling. Stale numbers may never appeal to you.
influence of the Sun in your 3rd House shows that you literally shine as a
communicator. As a young girl you probably enjoyed school and the experience of
learning, especially if you gained positive recognition for your efforts. The
energy of the Sun here adds to your abilities as a speaker, writer and
conversationalist. Your people skills may be among your greatest assets. The
sciences can also be interesting to you, and you may have a special ability to shed light on subjects which are
difficult for many people to understand.
beneath the surface and searching for what lies beyond the facade is stimulated
by the energy of Pluto in your 3rd House. You can be an avid researcher or
scientific thinker and may be quite adept at understanding many of the
mysteries of life. Your interest in subjects which are somewhat taboo, like
sexuality, birth and death, adds a special dimension to your personality. Your
ability to concentrate can be quite good, although you can be quite obsessive
in your thinking. Since you may not realize the extent of your own mental
intensity, you may wonder why some people have difficulty being around you. They
may be uncomfortable with your penetrating insight (especially if they have
something to hide), but may also feel that you know more than you do. You
rarely let on about everything you know or think, and can be quite secretive
about anything which is important to you.
House shows your approach to higher learning, which is usually accomplished
through a college or professional degree program. Subjects like philosophy,
religion, political science, cultural pursuits and the like are strongly
associated with this facet of your development.
take education seriously, and are likely to prefer learning things that have a
realistic basis with Capricorn on the cusp of your 9th House. A practical
approach is much more suitable than abstract learning. You may be very much the
"show me" type of woman who prefers to have evidence for all the
theories. With Saturn ruling your 9th House, you are a prime candidate for
academia, and might fit into the academic pattern quite nicely, including becoming
a teacher. Regardless of your aims, your education needs to provide a
reasonable option for making a living. This energy also stimulates a somewhat
orthodox approach to religion and philosophy, although you may have a strong
affinity for nature religions and ritual.
no planets in your 9th House, indicating that extended education in a formal
setting may not be your highest priority. Although you may be quite
philosophical or approach life itself as a learning experience, you may have
interruptions in formal education or may find that you learn in different ways
than those found in more academic settings. To further understand your approach
to education study the meaning of the sign on the cusp of the 9th House
explained above, and reflect on the energy of Jupiter and its sign and house
placement as indicators of the development of your higher mind.
11th House you learn from peers, and connect with your community. The 11th
House involves your special interests, too. This is very much the school of
life, because this is also the area which relates to developing your goals.
to have the things you want and to experience a life of true security begins
with your dreams. With Pisces influencing your 11th House, your dreams play a
major part in accomplishing your aims. Your ability to envision what you want
from life can be quite empowering. And if you can do something which confirms
the probability of making your dreams happen, then you can be even more
successful. Although you have to start with the dream, at some point you need
to touch the physical reality. It's like career day at school. You may think,
"I'd like to be a doctor." But until you follow a doctor around for a
few hours and get a sense of what it would be like, you may wonder if it
actually fits. By making some physical connection to your dreams, you can
become a masterful creator of your life. Neptune's rulership of this house adds
a desire to make a difference in the world to your goals. You know that you can
be part of the change which will add meaning and compassion to the experience
have a goal, your action, energy and courage play a significant part in
achieving it with Mars in your 11th House. You may enjoy challenges and can
accomplish more if you are met with situations which require you to rise to the
occasion. You may also prefer to stir up activity levels when things start to
get a little boring or stale. Choosing the outlets within your community and
among your friends and professional associates which will allow you to make a
difference can be very important. But you may also find that you become too involved
in the social side of life and lose track of your larger goals. When you do
focus on your aims, you have no trouble doing whatever is necessary to make
Your Special Edge
Women are definitely the intuitive sex. The process of intuitive awareness may
be more developed for you as a woman because you are more cyclically aware,
thanks to your anatomy and hormonal changes. But there is something more. As a
woman, your natural affinity with the energy of the Moon increases your receptivity,
an important ingredient in opening to the intuitive process. Intuitive
awareness is multifaceted. You can use it when you're dealing with emotional
and psychological issues, you can apply it to your creative expression, and you
can take advantage of your intuition in your work as part of your
decision-making. Developing your intuitive process is like developing any other
sensibility - you have to concentrate some time, effort and energy in order to
finely hone this element of your psyche. Although some quality of intuition may
be there innately, to make the most of it, you must learn to trust, listen and
incorporate it into your life.
of your chart which are most strongly associated with intuitive sensibility are
the water houses: the 4th House, the 8th House and the 12th House. The 4th
House is connected to your soul history. It is here that you seek a sense of
home, a connection to your family, and a feeling of safety and comfort. It is
here that your soul remembers your past, even if your conscious mind cannot fit
the pieces together.
sign Leo on the cusp of your 4th House, you may feel that your family fate is
indeed tied to your own. Yet you may also feel drawn to break away from the
restraints which are implied in your family history, and to do things which
support your individuality and autonomy. You may nourish others by example: in
fact, your example can have a greater impact upon your family than you may
realize! By listening to your intuitive voice concerning the best way to handle
family needs and develop a true sense of security, you may be able to set your
ego aside. With the Sun ruling your 4th House, you may find that sometimes your
ego can get in the way of your intuitive process. It's important to define the
difference between selfish desires and true inner guidance. Strive to avoid
trying to control the yearnings of your soul. Sometimes you may have to tell
your ego to sit quietly and listen to the part of you which speaks in a quiet
in your 4th House, you may love the comfort of being at home. Your inner home,
that place where you feel serene and one with yourself, is a place of beauty,
and your soul adores basking in that experience. You may also experience a deep
sense of satisfaction from the pleasure of being around those you love. Caring
for your soul involves creating a space
which allows love to grow in your life, and that space reflects your values and
House brings you into your deepest emotional attachments, and is the space
where you are alchemically transformed. This is the seat of your magical power:
your ability to change yourself in order to become whole. Here is the heart of
healing, but here you also hide your greatest vulnerabilities. Most people shy
away from dealing with 8th House issues like sex, death and taxes. After all,
there can be problems with any of them, and they are not easy to explore out in
the open. But there is more. For your intuitive development, this area
represents the part of you which holds your power, and you must learn to accept
and embrace this side of yourself to feel truly satisfied with your life.
Capricorn influencing your 8th House you may have quite a struggle in matters
pertaining to the processes of change and personal transformation. This
includes your feelings about aging, and your tendency may be to do whatever you
can to avoid the aging process. Some things are inevitable, such as physical
changes. Living in fear of the things you don't understand, like aging or
death, will only block your ability to deal with these changes positively. You
can control many of the effects inevitable changes will have in your life by
focusing your mind and energy upon constructive possibilities. Saturn's energy
is also an important factor in matters of this house, and you are likely to
discover that the healing and rejuvenation you desire can only occur when you
are taking full responsibility for yourself and your life circumstances.
do not have any planets in your 8th House you may not feel very strongly driven
to probe into the mysteries of life. Perhaps you do not have issues in this
regard, but there may also be other factors in your chart which drive you in
this capacity, and do not need the additional focus in this particular area. To
further understand your 8th House study the sign associated with it explained
above, and look to the planet associated with that sign.
House is the space of your dreams. Here, you surrender your conscious self and
float into the beyond. This is also the place in your psyche which contains
your past, and where you are one with all humanity. Your superconscious self
rests in this part of your psyche: the part of yourself that transcends your
influencing your 12th House, you may have a highly active subconscious self.
Your dreams may reveal that you are more temperamental than you appear, and you
need a place to channel this fiery quality. By actively participating in
understanding your dreams, you may discover a new realm of awareness. With Mars
ruling this house you may be more successful participating in
"active" forms of meditation, such as yoga, tai chi, martial arts or
dance. Just sitting quietly trying to gain a sense of what is happening on the
inner realms may leave you feeling frustrated. But once you've learned to
channel that energy, you can then develop a quality of mindfulness which
accompanies you in every state of consciousness. You can develop a very
powerful intuition, but may not always listen to it!
for solitude may be stimulated by Saturn's influence in your 12th House. You
may need ample time to reflect and clarify and can benefit from regular periods
of meditation which will allow you to release your anxieties and open to true
inner peace. It is critical that you learn how to deal with and address your
fears, because they can inhibit your ability to remain open to your intuitive
and creative sensibilities. Finding your inner dragon and discovering ways to
either live with or banish that part of you which is overwhelming will restore
your faith in yourself and in the divine order.
intuitive self can be highly stimulated with Uranus in your 12th House. You may
have flashes of insight which vanish as quickly as they come, and may need to
develop some manner of focusing your mind in order to take advantage of your
sense of knowingness. Your meditations can be freeing, but you may have trouble
just sitting quietly. An active form of meditation, such as hatha yoga, tai chi,
chi gong or even dancing can be both inspiring and clearing for you.
of your Moon plays an important role in your intuitive development. Since your
Moon is related to your subconscious mind, it should not surprise you that this
is the part of you that contains all knowledge about yourself and your life.
Occasionally it's a good idea to purge from your psyche the things you no
longer need - much like an internal house cleaning. Your hormonal cycles
provide an excellent opportunity to do just that, and by using this natural
rhythm to release, you can feel much more open to clearer transmission of
your Sagittarius Moon, your mind is open to all sorts of possibilities. Since
your search for Truth may take you on many adventures, it seems natural to you
that your might find keys to developing your intuitive self through adopting a
more spiritual approach to life. Integrating the spiritual into your everyday
life is crucial to your personal growth. You simply cannot abandon your
principles in any of your thoughts or actions without feeling strong
other points related to the Moon which you'll find in your chart. They are
called the Moon's Nodes, and are not planets, but points in space. The influence
of the Moon's Nodes is felt on an inner level. From the South Node, you learn
about your past and the natural inclinations which may influence many of your
subconscious choices. In some ways, the South Node suggests old habits. The
North Node of the Moon suggests a spiritual and emotional challenge, and
represents the directions you may feel compelled to follow in your evolutionary
challenge with the North Node in Virgo is to develop a clear sense of
discrimination and pure thinking. You may discover that teaching or guiding
others provides and excellent avenue for personal service, and when you look
back over your life, may recall many incidents of others seeking your judgment,
support or guidance. When you've allowed yourself to surrender to truly serving
the needs of the situation at hand, you've found new abilities and strengths.
With your South Node in Pisces your old tendencies to escape the burden of
responsibility or to live in a world of fantasy will accomplish very little in
the realm of personal growth. You are learning to employ your imagination and
sensibilities toward the service of humanity.
intuition is the flash of insight. Sometimes that flash is so brilliant that
you change your entire life to follow it's glow. This is also the part of you
which defies restraint, and certainly your intuitive mind can celebrate that
influence of Uranus in your 12th House has been explained earlier in this
section of your report.
energy takes you into the world of the etheric - the place beyond the physical
which is filled with mystical wonder. You surrender to this part of yourself
when you meditate, when you give in to your creative muse, and when you give of
yourself to others. In developing your intuitive and psychic sensibilities,
Neptune provides a primary ingredient: letting go. Through this energy you
surrender yourself to the greater truth. But be careful: you can also surrender
your will to the power of deception and abuse through another of Neptune's
Neptune in your 5th House it's easier for you to release and open your
intuitive mind when you're in the midst of creating. Your imaginative and
impressionable sensibilities work to your advantage when applied to
self-expression - like music, the arts, dancing, writing - but any creative
outlet allows you to open to this flow. Any situation which allows you to open
your heart will enhance your psychic abilities!
insight is on the deeper psychic level. Through Plutonian energy you can read
between the lines. You see the twitch of an eye that tells the truth, you read
the movement of hands, the tone of voice that betrays what words fail to say.
Developing your Plutonian energy requires that you reach into the very depths
of yourself and become familiar with your entire being. Yes, that includes your
shadow self, your darker side - and it also encompasses your passion, your
strength of survival and your ability to heal.
have a very penetrating mind with Pluto in the 3rd and can be a psychically
gifted. Your ability to use words to create change can be amazing, and you may
also be quite gifted using your voice as a tool for healing and transformation.
You may be capable of probing into mysteries and finding information long after
others have given up on finding anything.
Creating a Home
Mothering. These experiences are associated with womanliness, but are not the
sole definers of your womanhood. Although women are the only ones who can
become mothers, it is not necessary to be a mother to become an exceptional
nurturer! Nurturing is a natural expression for women - but the manner in which
it is done is very individualized. Whether with children, lovers, partners,
friends - or even with your own parents - you have ample opportunities to
nurture others. The person who needs your nurturing most, however, is YOU.
Although caring for others can fill a special place in your soul, the way you
care for yourself is especially important. You may derive nourishment from
developing your talents and skills, or through your work. Study or travel can
be nourishing. And something as simple as a long soak in the tub can refill
your spirit. Part of nourishing yourself is physical, part emotional and part
is definitely environmental: what you create in a home. In exploring these
factors together, you can begin to see the link between these different levels
of personal fulfillment.
facet of your Moon beyond what you've already explored, is what your Moon shows
about your deepest needs. You can only feel whole when these needs are answered
and fulfilled. Although it is tempting to look outside, your wisdom tells you
that a great part of the responsibility for nourishment comes from within
Moon in Sagittarius, your drive to fill your hunger for truth and freedom may
lead you into pursuits which develop your mind. However, you also may have to
learn to ask for personal space when you need it, and to respect the same needs
from others. When nurturing others, you encourage them to develop their own
independence. At home you need a place which provides a real sense of space,
and where you also have a place for reflection - a room like a study or
library, or an alcove in your bedroom might be just perfect. Give yourself
ample time to walk in the woods or a park, to read something inspirational, or
to have an open discussion with someone you admire. Take time to travel, even
if that only means a different route to work or exploring an unknown part of
your home town. Vacations away from home can be positively rejuvenating. When
you're feeling low, you might be most recharged by adding these things to your
life. They feed your soul.
plays a positive role in nurturance. Despite the bad rap Saturn sometimes
receives, this energy is necessary to your stability and growth. Through
Saturn, you learn to take responsibility for yourself and your actions. Saturn
also seems to be the repository of your fears, and it's important to understand
and deal with these emotions in order to be whole. Trying to repress such
feelings blocks your ability to feel the positive, supportive energy that life
has to offer. In many respects, the energy of Saturn is played out in your life
by your experience with authority figures. Your mother and father, extended
family and teachers were your primary Saturnian influences when you were a
young girl, and their direction and guidance still whisper in the way you
approach establishing your personal security. As an adult woman, you express
Saturn through the manner in which you take responsibility for yourself and
your needs for stability and security.
definite ideas about the way things should be with Saturn in Taurus, and your
manner of supporting and caring for others can be quite stabilizing. But you
don't enjoy sudden change, and would prefer to follow a traditional path,
especially when dealing with your children. Tried and true methods somehow seem
safer to you, although anything that adds an element of protection may seem
like a good idea when it comes to those you love. Other aspects of your chart
may indicate that you like to forge ahead of the times, but in your heart, you
can do it only if you see some continuity. With continuity you can be
comfortable and confident with experimentation. But just jumping into something
without some proof or connection does not sit well with you.
House illuminates what you need in a home environment, where you will feel most
comfortable and how you like to live. It is here that you create a feeling of
safety, where you can let your hair down and be yourself.
qualities of Leo radiate through this part of your chart, indicating that you
need a home which is solid, strong and where you can occasionally hold court!
Although you may not always entertain, you love having a place which is warm
and inviting to others. Plenty of light will feel most nurturing, so make sure
the sun can shine in. In the winter you'll adore a warm fire. Your decor may
range from simple to lavish, although you to love to add dramatic touches. The
influence of your Sun in this house adds a need to feel that you are in control
of your personal environment. Even though you may be generous and enjoy
entertaining, you're not likely to appreciate unannounced or uninvited

space. You love being surrounded by beautiful things, music and colors which
make you feel alive. You may also demonstrate your own artistic sensibilities
in the way you decorate your home and may use your home as a base for creating
and producing your own works of art. Your love of family can also be
exceptional, and establishing your own family may be one of your most rewarding
experiences. Having people around you who appreciate and care for you is just
as important as having people near who need your support and tenderness.
Meeting the World
on Your Terms
financial arenas were for many years primarily part of the "man's
world." Women stayed at home, cared for children, and took care of the
social needs of the family. Now that so many women are in the work place, and
with the advent of more open relationships where both partners are likely to
share paying bills and making financial decisions, the world is changing. You
can define your identity in the world in many ways today, including developing
a career. Meeting the world on your own terms involves uncovering the manner in
which you might shine most effectively and the way you use your resources, and
creating a pathway which allows you to realize your goals.
Midheaven, which is usually near the top of your astrological chart, is
signified by an astrological sign. This point in your chart represents your
vocation, your calling in life, and the sign at the Midheaven gives you several
clues about your path in the outside world. Just as importantly, the Midheaven
signifies your blossoming into wholeness and the manner by which you might best
accomplish this experience. Your 10th House also provides information about
your career path.
Aquarius at your Midheaven, your interest in areas which are off the beaten
track may be marked, but you may also find science fascinating. You need to be
recognized for something unique which sets you aside from everybody else, and
you require freedom to get there. For a career to satisfy you, it will have to
provide a mental challenge, and it would be even better if your could utilize
technological innovations in the process. Your life path may be most fulfilling
when you feel that you're on the leading edge and when you're experiencing a
real sense of uplifted awareness. The energy of Uranus also influences your
Midheaven, adding a need to employ your intuitive insights to your career
endeavors. When you're working independently, you're inspired to put forth your
best efforts. You may also be somewhat revolutionary in your approach to your
in Taurus you may use your innovative ideas in a more practical circumstance.
You're great at figuring out unique ways to make the best of the resources at
hand to get the job done.
of work itself is usually seen through the 6th House in your chart. Through
this facet of yourself, you express your approach and attitudes about working,
and your ability to cooperate with others is also indicated here. This house is
related to your physical health, and it's no surprise that you might hear the
complaint (or feel it yourself), "I'm sick of my job." Instead of
feeling thrown off balance by the tasks required to get through life, there are
ways to use this part of your time and energy to strengthen your life.
the cusp of your 6th house indicates that you need to work in an environment
which is serene and pleasant. Your productivity can be affected if you work in
a hostile environment. However, if conflicts arise, you may be the peacemaker.
With Venus ruling this house you may enjoy working with others, and can be
helpful and supportive, especially toward those people you really like. You
might enjoy working in a field which allows you to use your sense of fair play,
like the law. Or you might be successful in the beauty industry, interior
design and decorating, or fashion design.
You have no
planets in your 6th House, but still need to do something productive with your
life. This may be an indicator that you do not feel a need to focus all your
attention on working. Look to the influences suggested by the sign on this
house and to the planet ruling this house for more information about how to
best approach fulfilling your needs for productivity and duty.
As a woman,
you are innately creative. Although you may not consider yourself an artist,
your creative spirit and drive are the mechanisms through which you shape your
own life. Creative self-expression is seen strongly in the 5th House of your
chart, and by incorporating these elements into your career, you will gain
greater satisfaction from your work. If you have the time to concentrate on
more recreational forms of creativity, this is the part of your chart which indicates
what brings you pleasure. Life itself can certainly be a pleasurable experience
- all the time, not just on holidays!
influence on your 5th House shows that you approach creativity and play in a
rather matter-of-fact manner. You're happiest when you're producing something,
and may feel most satisfied when you've put your best efforts into whatever
you're doing. Regardless of your choices, you'll work diligently toward the
best possible mastery of your talents and skills. You may have strong manual
dexterity skills, and can be quite adept as a writer, teacher or musician.
Whatever your artistry, your precision and attention to detail will set you
aside from everyone else. Mercury's association with this house adds a mental
dimension to whatever creative avenues you pursue. It also indicates that you
may find special enjoyment from recreation which is mentally stimulating.
fortunate to have Neptune in your 5th House. This imaginative energy adds a
special touch to your creative power and heightens your artistic sensibilities.
Music and the arts may be an important part of your life, and you may love
drama and the theater. You may also have an excellent eye for photography or

most powerful creative drives in your chart is your Sun. Since this is the
energy which can drive you to be noticed, learning to cultivate this aspect of
yourself in a positive manner can amplify your success in life.
it, sometimes it's just fun to show off with your Sun in Leo. You may even be
quite low-key, and gracious about giving others the spotlight. But you know
that when you're shining in all your glory, that the light can be blinding for
a moment, and then, well, you're just gorgeous!
To feel a true sense of success, you may need that few moments of fame
and glory. And if you're doing it right, the Universe may even grant you more!
individuality is expressed through many different energies in your chart, but
the energy which is most closely associated with the unique and individualistic
part of yourself is Uranus. Through Uranian energy, you display your ingenuity
and make the breakthroughs which allow you to move into new experiences. Uranus
also prompts your rebellious nature, and the placement of this energy in your
chart shows you where you are staging your own personal revolution.
in Taurus your primary focus for change has revolved around a need to establish
values which are meaningful in the context of your own life experience. Along
with other women born from 1935 to 1942, you have discovered the importance of
making the most of your resources. Your shared insights with other women born
with Uranus in Taurus have been connected to environmental and financial
issues, and you may still feel that you are fighting for true value for women
within society. The areas where you have broken ground for your own
self-actualization and establishment of personal worth are shown by the house
where Uranus resides in your chart.
of Uranus in your 12th House indicates that you may not always show your unique
talents to everyone. However, you can be quite effective in bringing innovative
changes even in such situations as institutions, and may be rather adept at
working within a system to bring about alterations or modifications. You may
also be a natural psychologist, whether you work in that field or not!
of Chiron is also a powerful factor for your outreach into the world. Through
Chiron, you discover both strength and vulnerability. The vulnerability
represented by Chiron is, in many ways, like a doorway which allows you to
penetrate a deeper level of personal mastery. This is the process of initiation
not unlike that which a Shaman must endure in order to learn how to travel
between the worlds. Through Chiron, you learn how to travel between the world
of your inner self and the world outside to achieve a sense of true purpose and
Chiron in Leo, bringing your focus to the need for a life purpose which is
centered upon experiencing a true connection to creative power. This power can
be directed into many arenas but may be most effective when you have a position
of leadership or authority. When you're providing entertainment, sources of
recreation, places for personal achievement, encouragement for personal
development or insights into the nature of love you shine and feel alive.
in your 3rd House your words and manner of communicating have a significant
impact upon your ability to accomplish your purpose and aims. Learning about
the power of mind is one of your primary lessons, and directing your thoughts
toward positive, uplifting possibilities will open many more doors than
worrying or complaining.
Opening Your Heart
Love.... Songs, poems, novels, fairy-tales, movies all extol the power and
pleasure of love - and for good reason: love is the food of life! There are
many opportunities to love, in fact, a love affair with life is not a bad idea.
But you also may need to "grow" love by sharing it, and therein is
the seed of all relationships.
planetary energies which are most usually associated with love are Venus and
Neptune. Venusian energy radiates directly from your heart, from the center of
yourself, where love resides deep within. Loving is an inner experience. The
more you open to the love you hold within yourself, the more it grows. Your
feelings of worthiness are represented by Venus, and as you grow to understand
and appreciate your own value as a woman, it becomes easier to let this love
energy flow through your life. Neptunian energy is Divine compassionate love -
the love which does not judge and readily forgives. Neptune is the realm of
romance, mysticism and heavenly perfection. Truly transcendent Neptunian love
arises when you have healthy boundaries of your own, otherwise, you can become
a victim of your own illusions!
you may feel that you are not really worthy of the love you need with Venus in
Virgo. This feeling stems from that yardstick you use to measure your own
perfection. And who says that you have to be perfect in order to be lovable?
You can place the same restraints on yourself by feeling that you can only love
someone if they meet your detailed list of criteria. All these fancy
restrictions may just be your way of assuring that you won't be hurt, because
the thought of someone that you care about might reject you is almost
unbearable. So, let's start from square one. You do need love, and when you
love, you love deeply. You love most easily when you have reached a real
understanding and know that you are truly accepted for who you are. You don't
have to get that tummy tuck in order to be lovable after all! To keep your heart open, you need to remind
yourself that you are whole, perfect and loving. To sustain love, you strive to
make life wonderful; that's good. But trouble arises when you start trying to
fix somebody because you love them. Oops! Instant opportunity for pain! So
before you pull out your doctor kit, think about the situation first. Maybe
you, or your sweetheart, are perfect as you are. Imagine that....
wonder why you always seem to have to give more than you receive in love
relationships with your Moon in square aspect to Venus. This frustration
probably has its roots in your soul's history, and until you can allow love to
just flow openly from your heart you may always feel that the books are not
balanced. Disappointments in love may have wounded you in the past, so you may
have a little sensitivity as a result. Your initial reaction when you feel your
heart opening may be to guard yourself, since you don't want to repeat the pain
of disappointment. The only way to change this is to learn how to fill your own
heart with joy and love through the pure experience of love itself. Love
without expectation. Love just to love. And begin by loving yourself and
knowing that you deserve the kind of love which brings mutual tenderness,
respect and comfort.
semi-sextile connection between your Sun and Venus adds a positive measure of
charm to your personality, and may enhance your ability to express your
feelings of attraction. You can send just the right subtle signals when you're
interested in someone, but have to be careful about assuming the outcome.
Mercury in semi-square aspect to Venus, you may have trouble clearly
communicating your feelings. Sometimes it's just a matter of semantics. You can
also send mixed messages, and may attract men who do the same thing.
Clarification can be achieved by first reflecting upon what you really want to
say, and then making sure that you are understood. Intent is not always enough!
you are only interested in a man for his money, but it's definitely a
consideration since you have Venus square Jupiter. But just looking for Mr.
Right who has the bucks is never quite enough, and you know it. So, you love
wonderful things and have expensive tastes, but if money becomes the real
drive, you may have all the stuff and little of the real satisfaction. However,
if you fail to take finances into account when making a commitment in your
relationships, you'll do yourself a disservice. Just knowing where to put money
on the priority list is the problem! Being honest with yourself is where you
start, and taking that honesty into your relationship is the next step.
As one of
the generation of women born with Neptune in Virgo, you are working toward a
sense of spiritual perfection. This influences every aspect of your life,
especially your relationships, and those relationships which distort your sense
of divine harmony may be especially difficult for you to tolerate. But you may
also have a kind of addiction to perfection which makes it almost impossible to
feel that you really deserve the love you need. When you realize that
everything is perfect, including you, loving gets easier, since self-acceptance
is easier. This is especially critical at this time in your life when you are
facing the process of aging. After all, you've had a kind of fascination with
youthful vitality. You can still radiate that energy regardless of your
chronological age, and may finally be willing to deal directly with the
perfection of each stage of your life. In your relationships you will be
challenged to release dysfunctionality and face your real needs. These include
a life of truly simple pleasures, unencumbered by external pressures which get
in the way of just enjoying the company of those you love.
emotional boundaries is not easy for you with your Moon in square aspect to
Neptune, and you may find that you are continually giving of yourself while
asking nothing in return. Oh, but you dream about it; and you need support,
strength and love from the man you adore. There are different ways to express
these needs, and therein is the variation in possibility of receiving. If
you're whining, complaining or suffering, you may be ignored. And you don't
have to be sick to gain support, either. There are healthy ways to ask, but if
you're in an unhealthy situation, it's difficult to get the answer you need. If
you're feeling victimized, take the first step of deciding that you no longer
want or need to be the victim. A lot will change after that!
Sun and Neptune are in a semisquare aspect, you may have trouble seeing men as
they are. Your dream of the perfect man has probably met defeat more than once
when you've awakened to realize that there is no such animal. You still can
fall into the trap of seeing only the illusion and failing to realize the real
person. Once you have a stronger sense of yourself as a whole person, you will
not be tempted to project so much of yourself onto the men in your life.
words, poetic ideas and spiritual quests are all part of your fantasies of love
with Mercury in sextile aspect to Neptune. And if you put your energy and focus
into creating the manifestation of these ideals, you may actually see some of
those dreams becoming real. You'll adore a man who spirituality is genuine and
whose ability to show compassion is part of the core of his being, because that
is a reflection of a true part of yourself.
by the trine between Saturn and Neptune, you may attract relationships which
support your needs for self-actualization. Your ability to make choices which
reflect your deepest needs is strengthened, and you are more likely to explore
many different facets of a relationship before seriously committing to it. You
are very capable of listening to your inner voice and directing what you feel
from an inner level into your everyday life. If you are still seeking to find
your life mate, begin to work on an inner level to prepare yourself fully to
become the partner you need to be. Allow some time to visualize the life you
wish to live and the types of thing you want to accomplish individually and
within a relationship. See yourself as whole, happy and fulfilled. That energy
will radiate from the core of your being, and can be the perfect magnet to attract
the partner you desire.
born when Uranus and Neptune were in trine aspect to one another, a cycle which
influences a generation of men and women. You're among the women willing to try
things which are out of the ordinary, and are part of a generation whose
efforts are focused on breaking into new territory in the fields of psychology,
spirituality and consciousness. As an individual, you may feel comfortable
exploring directions which would have been unthinkable to your parents and
which can open new possibilities for your personal growth.
in your chart which amplify love relationships are the 5th, 7th, and 11th
Houses. Through the 5th House, you experience giving love. It is through this
facet of yourself that you have love affairs, playful and recreational
relationships and where you produce the offspring of loving. The offspring can
range from artistic endeavors to children. But when dealing with relationships,
this is the space which is usually occupied by loving another in an intimate
influence on your 5th House adds a practical and methodical approach to love
affairs. You're not likely to open your heart unless you have a meeting of the
minds. You may even have a list of the characteristics you hope to find in a
lover and may not let a number of men through the door if they fail to meet
your strict criteria. This sense of discrimination can be quite helpful,
particularly if your tend to be overly romantic. The energy of Mercury plays an
important role in the way you show love. You may enjoy sending special cards
and letters to keep the connection strong, and might even be tempted to write
poems or stories based upon your experiences of love. Maintaining a mental
connection with your lover will always be important. You can also close the
door to your heart by allowing feelings of imperfection or inferiority to get
in your own way. Take a personal inventory (that should be easy for you!), and
oil those rusty hinges on the doors to your heart. Allow yourself to play a bit
more. Your sensuality can be a lot of fun when you let it out.
energy in your 5th House encourages you to spend a lot of time dreaming about
the perfect love. Reverie and fantasy can be healthy, and in the best
situations your intimate relationships will allow plenty of time for you to
indulge in playful fantasy and high-level romance. Be alert to the possibility
of falling in love with love, or with the things you wish to see in others, and
try to take off your rose colored glasses from time to time. Make time in your
life for giving of yourself, whether through charitable ventures, in community
service or through your creative or artistic self-expression. And avoid the
temptation of looking for a love that will rescue you from a life that does not
fit your dreams.
House of your chart illustrates what you're seeking from a partner. More
importantly, this part of your chart also tells a story about the kind of
partner you really want to become. This is also the realm of social contact,
and provides information about your approach to socialization. Although
marriage agreements are shown through the 7th House, planets here (or a lack of
planets here) do not "promise" marriage or its lack. But if your 7th
House is highly activated, you may be more motivated to find a partner.
have Sagittarius influencing your 7th House, you need lots of freedom within
your partnership or marriage. Any partner who tries to hold you back will only
be frustrated, so he may as well give you the independence you require or he
won't have you at all. You may also attract highly independent men, and in
order to have the trust and understanding required to sustain a partnership,
need to clarify what you expect from one another. You'll appreciate a man who
is an excellent companion and enjoys traveling down the road of life with you,
although you may each take your own personal journeys from time to time. During
the periods in which you connect, you need to plan, talk and envision your
future goals and desires. Since Jupiter's energy is influential in this area,
you can gain excellent support through a partnership when you're participating
together in something that will allow you to feel that you're heading toward a
resides in your 7th House, opening your soul to the hunger for a mate. If
anybody yearns for the experience of a soul mate, it is you. However, finding
that man can be difficult, especially if you over idealize. In essence your
soul mate is inside you, waiting for you to fully embrace her! But you may give more of yourself to a
partnership than many women might. You need to know the support and caring of a
mate, and in order to grow emotionally must feel that your needs are important
to your partner. Feeling at home with a man has many dimensions, and the
promise of creating a home with your partner is high on your list of
priorities. Good questions to ask before marriage will center around home and
family. Just be sure that the answers are mutually supportive!
through the 11th House that you learn about unconditional relationships, and
where you open to receiving love and support from others. Here you find your
friends, your supportive professional allies, and your community. Through this
facet of yourself you develop your special interests. And here you set your
goals for the future. It's wonderful the way friends can support your aims,
provide feedback when you need objectivity, and comfort you when you're facing
challenges. Your approach to friendship is also seen through this part of your
Pisces on the cusp of your 11th House, signifying that your friendships can
have a spiritual and deep-seated emotional bond. Those who share your beliefs
and ideals will be readily invited into your circle, and you may have lifelong
friends whose history parallels your own. Compassionate understanding is the
tie that binds when it comes to your friends, but you can also get into trouble
if you fail to maintain your emotional boundaries with your friends. If you
feel that a friend is taking unfair advantage of you, examine the part you play
in that situation. You may need to clearly define when you are and are not
available to them. Neptune's influence in this house adds a special psychic
connection to your close friends. This energy enhances your ability to forgive
your friends, too. It's probably a good idea to be very careful when you're
making business agreements with friends, since it would be difficult for you to
draw the line between business and friendship. If at all possible, try to avoid
linking the two. Overall, it is through your friendships that you develop your
most compassionate links to your heart. These relationships teach you how to
open to receiving love. For you to open your heart to let love in, you may
first need to forgive yourself and let go of the past.
in activities with your friends can be invigorating with Mars in your 11th
House. You may even rely on your friendships to motivate you, although you can
be quite a motivator yourself when others are counting on your support. Your
display of courage and strength attracts friends, and working together to
accomplish something important can forge a powerful bond with your friends. You
may have several male friends, and will probably like women who are rather
independent and assertive. If you're uncertain of your own power or do not
stand up for yourself, you may attract "friends" whose influence can
bring turmoil and disruption into your life. Also, if you've not found positive
ways to deal with your anger, you may attract other people with whom you create
destruction. These disrupters are not really friends in the truest sense,
especially if they're always helping you get into trouble. It may be up to you
to develop your Mars assertiveness powerfully enough so that you can break your
Power Issues: Sex, Money and Control
power is an individual expression, and has different meanings for each person.
As a woman in the world today, your opportunity to experience and express your
personal power is largely dependent upon the manner in which you develop it.
Particularly in the Western World, as times have changed and the power base has
gradually evolved beyond the patriarchal control of the last centuries, women
are seeking to define their place in the world: collectively and individually.
Gaining influence in the world through career and financial development, you
begin to understand the different levels of power. Within the family, your
roles are also evolving. You are also more free to express your sexual needs
and desires, and demand that you are respected as a person and not sexually
abused. But everything stems from your ability to identify, embrace and
assimilate the true nature of your power as an individual woman.
On a personal
level, you can begin to identify much about your own power by looking deeply
into the meaning of your 1st House: Your Personality Self. Early in your report
you read about what you project about yourself as identified by your Ascendant.
Your first House further defines that projection of the Self, and is an area
where you carve out much about the way you show yourself to the world on your
your Gemini Ascendant you show the face of the eternal questioner, always eager
to discover something new in the world around you. Your power emerges through
your ability to communicate effectively with others. By developing your mind
and increasing your understanding, you may become an important link in the
evolution of human thought. But you are distractible, and it is that tendency
to get off track which can undermine your power. Instead of developing your
understanding, you can wade in the shallows of simplicity, glancing across the
surface and never penetrating the depths of wisdom. The power of the present
moment holds many opportunities for you, especially when your mind is focused
and connected to the here and now. From this point, you can create endless
possibilities for your personal growth, which will be further enhanced through mental clarity and awareness of the
world around you.
energy in your 1st House adds confidence to your personality and is very
empowering. Your humor and open-minded attitudes can be very attractive, and
your desire to experience life as an adventure adds an optimistic quality which
may attract positive fortune. You may love sports and fitness activities, but
you can also be self-indulgent. To establish your physical power and strength,
you need to allow time in your life to build your endurance and support your
physical vitality. Staying active may actually enhance your personal
confidence! You are also strengthened when your life path supports your highest
beliefs and ideals, but will lose power if you adopt hypocritical or
space on your chart is your Midheaven. This point, which is usually at the top
of your chart and marks the cusp of the 10th House, is like the crown and torch
of the Statue of Liberty. Here too, are the indicators of the types of people
you most admire, and the clues to what you need to develop within yourself to
attain unshakable self-respect.
your Aquarius Midheaven you are well aware of the importance of a
group-oriented power base. However, this power in numbers works only if you are
affiliated with those whose views and ideals reflect and strengthen your own.
You admire those whose efforts are dedicated to the principles of liberty and
universality. Work for the collective or humanitarian service can encourage
your rise to prominence and influence.
of security with yourself plays a valuable role in achieving your ambitions
with your Moon in sextile aspect to your Midheaven. In addition you will be
most successful in the world when you feel good about what you're doing.
Finding a life work which fills your soul not only supports your personal
growth but also touches the lives of others in a positive manner.
Sun opposition to your Midheaven you may struggle between your needs for security
and your ambitions. You may fear success, especially if you feel that success
in the world will mean exposing yourself or your vulnerabilities. But if you
work toward establishing a true sense of personal security, outside success may
not feel as threatening to you.
are focused on your ambitions you are quite capable of carrying through until
you reach your goals. Mars in sextile aspect to your Midheaven adds strong
drive to your abilities to achieve success in the world. You may enjoy work which
has plenty of challenges, but you can also be successful in areas which simply
allow you to stay active.
Jupiter in trine aspect to your Midheaven, the doors to achieving your
ambitions are likely to open rather easily. You may have excellent connections,
but your confidence in your skills and abilities is what draws the attention of
the people who are there to use their influence to support your aims. From
positions of influence, you can also be quite generous and helpful to others.
Sometimes, you can be a little lazy about reaching your goals, especially if
you feel you deserve to be there already. But once you put your efforts into
something, there's no stopping you.
once said that money makes the world go around, and from all evidence, it
certainly seems to be a powerful force. Money, in fact, symbolizes power. With
money, you can have what you want. With more money, you can have more of what
you want. Without money, you may want what you cannot have. Your relationship
with money is an extremely intimate and seductive force. The way you use your
resources - money, time, energy - says a lot about how you perceive your own
power and personal worth. This facet of yourself is expressed through the 2nd
House of your chart. Here, you express your value systems. The important
special link between finances and self-esteem cannot be understated, and is
especially important for you as a woman. In order to extract the real value of
your talents and services from others in the world (such as what you are paid
from your job), you must first value yourself.
qualities of Cancer radiate through your 2nd House, indicating that you take a
protective approach to handling your finances and personal resources. Your
emotional attitudes about material things plays an important role in your
values, and you may find that you hang onto some things simply out of
sentimentality - including your deeply ingrained attitudes about money. If
you've been taught that money is the root of all evil, you may find it quite
difficult to abandon that attitude and allow yourself to feel good about
financial success. When you stop to evaluate your own need for material
security, you'll find that establishing a solid financial base is an important
step toward strengthening your worth on many levels. The energy of your Moon
plays a major role in your approach to finances, and you need to recognize the
cyclical nature of the economy if you are to deal with it effectively. You may
even work well in a profession which is cyclical in its production and demand
or can be successful in areas which rely on time-honored resources, like real
estate, antiques, or the food industry. Since you may feel drawn to use your
resources, including time money and energy, to assist others, it would make
sense that you'll be more effective when you know how to attract, develop and
positively maintain your own.
energy in your 2nd House indicates that the way you think has a dramatic effect
upon your sense of self worth. You can benefit from learning ways to use your
mental energy to change your attitudes about money and finances. You can also
experience financial gain through communications, writing, public relations
work, sales, secretarial work or the computer industry. You, of all women, can
turn your ability to talk into gold.
which you share with others are reflected in the 8th House of your chart.
Whether you're considering joint property and finances, inheritance, insurance
settlements or tax obligations, this area is not as free and easy as the 2nd
House, which seems more like what you want for yourself alone. Another layer of
this part of your life deals with your sexuality, and the manner in which you
open intimately to others. This is a very personal space, and it is probably one
of the most guarded aspects of any woman's psyche. It is here that much
wounding has taken place over many centuries, and it is here that the mask of
propriety has to be removed in order to openly accept and integrate that fact
that you are a person who needs wholeness and healing, and who yearns to bond
at the most alchemical level with life itself.
also find your compulsions. It's no wonder that you don't display this part of
yourself to just anybody. You have to feel safe to open this facet of yourself,
and you realize that this vulnerability can be used against you in power plays.
But what you may not always remember is that this is also where you have the
power! In true tantric traditions, it is through the vessel of a woman's sexual
energy that a couple can ride the wave of sexual ecstasy. This also extends to
the other power aspects of any relationship. If your transformational and
magical qualities are blocked, the whole of the relationship will suffer.
approach to sexual intimacy may be quite cautious due to the influence of
Capricorn on your 8th House. Although you may enjoy the games of love, when it
gets to intimacy, you're not entirely footloose and fancy free. Before you
achieve real intimacy, you need to establish trust and mutual respect.
Otherwise you may never fully open your heart and soul to the relationship. You
can be quite sensual, and will find it easier to experience the levels of
sexuality which transport you into ecstasy when you indulge your sensual side.
Once you've made an emotional commitment in a relationship, you may not
relinquish it easily, so it's very important that you make choices for reasons
which fit your deeper needs. You need to be careful of your tendency to be
attracted to someone for the things or financial security he can provide. If
this is your basis for getting together, you may ultimately feel trapped by the
have no planets in the 8th House you may not be obsessed with too many problems
or hassles with the issues of this area in your life. But you may not get off
free on this one, either. Study the sign on the cusp of this house and read
everything noted about the planet associated with that sign, because this is
the energy tied up with your emotional attachments!
is about getting what you want by going after it. Mars is drive. Mars is
courage. Mars is desire. Mars is unabashed sexuality. Mars is the fuel for
personal power. Men do Mars quite effectively, right down to fighting and war.
But you also have a warrior spirit, an Amazon Self. This is your Mars. If you
fail to own and utilize your own Martian force, you lose power.
in Aries, your passions can run quite hot. Your power emerges from your sense
of courage and enthusiasm, and when you're really turned onto something or
someone, you can be quite assertive. You can lose power if you jump into
anything too quickly and will undermine your influence when you are too
aggressive. Learning how to handle anger is important too, since you may be a
bit short-tempered. But once you've expressed your anger, you usually go right
on. You may enjoy taking the lead in sexual exchange, and can become quite
frustrated if you run into rejection or denial. Sharing sex with a partner who
enjoys the playful elements of sexuality can then allow you to experience the
more profound levels of energy. You're most attracted to men who are
independent and strong-willed, but are capable of standing up to them when you
need to do so. Staying physically active helps you maintain your power on many
levels, and if you've fallen into a sedentary life, you will find that
regaining your physical vitality through increasing your activity level will
and Saturn in semisquare aspect, you struggle with issues of control and
domination, both within your relationships and with life itself. You may not
trust your own power and can attract others who test your ability to take
control of your life by offering you their own set of directions and
limitations. When you determine your priorities, you may feel somewhat
reluctant to put them into action, but once you've set upon your path, you can
be quite effective at directing and controlling your own life. Pay attention to
your tendency to try to control the outcome of everything, though. Learn to
accept responsibility for your own mistakes. This is not power talking, it's
fear. Sometimes, you also gain power by knowing when to stop and let the
traffic move past you.
are focused on your ambitions you are quite capable of carrying through until
you reach your goals. Mars in sextile aspect to your Midheaven adds strong
drive to your abilities to achieve success in the world. You may enjoy work
which has plenty of challenges, but you can also be successful in areas which
simply allow you to stay active.
plays the role of the big controller in your life. Sometimes that control seems
to come from outside. You know - all the rules and regulations, the authority
figures, the intimidating people who tell you what to do - this is the Saturn
of the outside world. But you have the same traffic cop in the back of your own
mind, telling you what is right and wrong, chiding you when you make a mistake,
holding you back when you're about to do something stupid. Saturn control can
be a good thing. This is your energy for self-discipline, clarity and focus.
You need Saturn. But you need Saturn in its most productive sense. You do not
need the guilt, intimidation and self-limitation that keep you from having what
you require from life.
endurance levels are amazing with Saturn in Taurus, and it is that endurance
which is the source of your personal power. You lose power when you feel
insecure and when you allow jealousy, resentment or possessiveness to overtake
you. Although you may think that holding onto the people and things you love
will add to your power, sometimes you simply have to let go and allow change to
work its own magic in your life. When you look at your inner drives, you may
discover that you are driven by a fear of loss or abandonment. Even if this has
not been confirmed by life experiences, it can play a huge role in your
approach to your relationships and career endeavors, and it effects your self
esteem. Learning to concentrate upon fostering growth and dealing with your
emotional attachments by allowing some change to infiltrate your life will be
very empowering in the long run.
realistic attitudes provide a strong foundation for your personal success with
Mercury in sextile aspect to Saturn. Since you can be a superb planner, you'll
find that you feel confident because you're prepared. Your intellectual
development is a strong source of power in your life.
and Uranus in conjunction you may rebel against restraints in your life as a
means of accomplishing a sense of control and power. The manner in which you
stage your rebellion makes all the difference between whether or not it is
empowering or defeating. You cannot afford to be stuck in doing things the way
they've always been done. You're here to stimulate progress, new alternatives
and reasonable innovation. But you must do this in a responsible manner, or the
effectiveness of your efforts will be undermined.
feel a deep sense of faith and trust in the experience of life with Saturn in
trine aspect to Neptune. Your spirituality plays an important role in your
sense of power as a whole woman, and you may find that your spiritual focus
gives you strength when the mundane world falls short. Listening to your inner
voice is just as important as learning the factual evidence presented through
data, and you can blend your inner understanding with the external
"facts" to create a wonderful manifestation of your dreams and hopes.
Your faith in yourself and ability to trust your own judgment is also a strong
part of your power base. This is the power of surrender to higher law.
control is sometimes difficult to grasp, but it's definitely there. When you
feel this control from outside yourself, it is undermining and extremely
intimidating. The force of Pluto is buried deep within your psyche. It is
unleashed and grows in a manner like the process of mitosis in a fertilized
cell, which is altered, splits off, combines with other cells and ultimately
becomes an organism. Through Pluto, you experience the power of life, birth,
healing, and the ultimate change of death. If you are trapped in a mire of
shame, guilt and self-destructiveness, you may have undergone a Plutonian
transformation as a result of trauma earlier in your life. But it is this same
force which plants the seeds of change that eventually can lead to the creation
of a new self.
of your thoughts determines your experience of life. Pluto's energy in your 3rd
House prompts you to transform your thinking. You must learn to trust your own
