Woman to Woman

An Astrological Portrait

Prepared for Theron, Charlize

Your 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!

We are 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 whole.

Your natal, 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

The 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.

Your chart shows a strong predominance of fiery energy, adding a special intensity to your personality and a strong level of vitality. You may be more action oriented than some of your friends, and your adventurous enthusiasm may make you the topic of conversation among your friends. Your intuition and instincts are effective allies. Watch a tendency to push yourself too hard, since it's easy to burnout once you've gone beyond your limits. In relationships with others, you prefer to be around those who love the adventure of life and who appreciate your active inspirational nature. 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.

Another 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. Your strongest mode is Cardinal, indicating that your basic approach to life is one of getting things started. You're an initiator, and are happiest when you're beginning something new. This factor sometimes indicates an enhanced sense of courage and enthusiasm. A strong ability to get things going, maintain your inspiration, carry through with your commitments and complete projects. Your ability to deal with different styles and human diversity enhances your spirit of cooperation, and makes you a good choice for leadership positions. 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 weakest link is in mutability, which indicates that you sometimes have trouble adapting to change or that you are somewhat inflexible in your attitudes. 

When you 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.

You may 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 Real Self

Sometimes 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.

With your 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!

Your Ascendant is the face you present to the world, and shows how others see you. Your Ascendant, or rising sign, is Libra. You project an air or refinement and grace with Libra rising, and may take special care with your wardrobe, hair and appearance. Others may see you as beautiful. Your sense of color and style may be exceptional, and you can definitely pull off a class act when you want. You're most comfortable in a serene environment and prefer to maintain a sense of social grace and charm whenever possible. If there is difficulty, you may be the one called upon to help achieve harmony. Venus, the planetary energy associated with your rising sign, is in Virgo in your chart. Although you may prefer simple, practical styling in your manner of dress, you rarely opt for anything of shoddy quality. You appreciate natural beauty, and may look and feel your best when you enhance your best natural qualities.

The energy of Venus is in a semi-square aspect to your Ascendant, indicating that you may feel some frustration between having what you want and dealing with the cost. Cost, of course, can be in the form of time, energy or money. When you take a good look at your discontent, it may be that you are simply dissatisfied with yourself because you've been judging yourself according to values which really do not fit who you are. Learning to accept and fully embrace yourself is the key to softening those rough edges.

With Mars in quincunx or inconjunct aspect to your Ascendant, you may approach life somewhat unevenly. At times, you may be able to drive with great determination toward achieving  your goals. At other times, you may lose interest or energy before you get there. These bursts of energy can frustrate you, but can also be difficult for others to understand. Instead of just getting into a situation without thinking, try to take the time to assess it before you leap (this is especially true of relationships!). Also become clear about what you expect from yourself since you can both overrate and underestimate your abilities. You love challenges but need to choose those which will produce gratifying results.

With Jupiter in opposition to your Ascendant you may have difficulty setting limits and can be entirely too scattered. The positive quality of this placement involves your ability to attract situations which allow you to reach beyond your limitations. However, in order to succeed you may have to limit the number of options you're pursuing at one time!  Relationships with others can be a double-edged sword as well because you may gain great benefits through your association with a partner, but may not develop personal confidence in your abilities as an individual. Try to give yourself the same kind of enthusiastic support you offer to others and notice the difference!

With Saturn in square aspect to your Ascendant you can be somewhat overbearing with your attitudes toward life. It's easier for you to see what is wrong than to see what is right, and you can be especially negative when you're facing a difficult challenge. When you step back and look at yourself, you may realize that a part of you actually likes challenges. It's the scrutiny and criticism from those who seem to deride your worth that hurts. By learning to accept both your strengths and limitations, you can make choices which involve challenges that lead to growth and stability, instead of challenges which undermine your sense of self. You may cultivate more effective ways to separate your responsibilities for yourself from your responsibilities toward others. Then you can more easily step away from the guilt which arises when you are not carrying burdens which actually do not belong to you!

The energy of Uranus conjunct your Ascendant adds a sparkle to your personality. Your unique sense of style can be seen in your manner of dress, which reflects your independence and autonomy. You're not interested in being a cookie-cutter image of anyone. You may also resent stepping into roles which require you to act or behave in a particular manner. In relationships you need plenty of room to be yourself, and will appreciate a partner who gives you plenty of room to exercise your autonomy. You may attract irresponsible people into your life, but you can accept their individuality, even though they might not always be good for you. Other people may rely upon your intuitive insights, and as you mature, you may realize that this is the quality which provides the circuitry for your personality.

Neptune's semi-square aspect to your Ascendant adds increased sensitivity and impressionability to your personality. You may feel uncertain about your appearance or the way others see you, and can present an image which seems insecure or which reflects your uncertainty about yourself. It's easy to give too much credence to what others think instead of becoming more adept in your connection to yourself and trusting the way you feel about yourself. If your tendency is to try to cover up your identity by using clothes, hair color or make-up to define who you are, you may glance in the mirror one day and wonder who that is staring back at you. Defining your image can be fun, and there's no reason not to enjoy it. But shaping your self image according to ideals which do not relate to your true sense of self can be emotionally devastating.

There are 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 Leo Moon enhances your personal presence, and you can radiate an exceptional warmth and passion. You love a life filled with rich experiences, and seek out people and situations which stimulate an opening of your heart. Driven by the desire to be recognized, you may also need some time in the spotlight, and will fare best in relationships which allow you to have your moment in the sun. Your loyalty is a matter of pride for you, and it can be difficult for you to let go when faced with change.




Understanding Your Inner Feminine Self

Although 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 personal security.

The primary 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 Leo Moon radiates the kind of warmth which imparts the glow of love to everyone around you. You are a powerful woman, capable of asserting your desires in such a manner that others may find it difficult to refuse your requests. Perfectly suited to the role of family matriarch, you take a strong interest in helping to guide and develop those under your care. Although you can be quite comfortable at home surrounded by those you love and adore, you may also crave greater recognition, and definitely need your time in the spotlight. Never lacking creativity, you have many options for self-expression and need to adopt a way of life which gives you ample opportunity to develop your talents. The feeling that life is meant to be savored and enjoyed stimulates your desire to play, and you definitely need ample time for recreation. When entertaining, you pull out all the stops, and can be quite lavish with your generosity. Elaborate situations are not likely to intimidate you, but may, instead, be more like a challenge. You can be self-absorbed and self-indulgent, and need to have friends you can trust who will tell you the truth when you've gone too far. And you need to accept that truth, if it does come your way, as a sign of caring and concern. When you're hurt, your sulking can be just as dramatic as your joy when you're happy. During those times when your possessiveness raises its head, try to be aware of the part of yourself that feels threatened. Since letting go is never easy for you, you may simply be responding to a fear of losing something or someone you love. But forcing your will is not likely to make everything better. Surrendering to the love you feel might, however, make an exceptional difference!

Through the energy connection between your Moon in conjunction with your Sun, your willfulness is expressed in a more sensitive manner. But your emotional sensitivity can get in the way of your need to be direct about your feelings. You can lack objectivity, and can become overly attached to a situation because of your feelings about it. Instead of trying to act like a man in a man's world, allow yourself to function as a whole woman. You'll be much more effective and may even bring about a change in the way things are done!

The Moon and Mercury conjunct in your chart can bring a positive enhancement to your intuitive sensibilities. But when you're emotionally involved with someone or attached to a particular outcome, your emotional needs can block the clarity of your intuitive self. Your feelings about something can also get in the way of your objectivity when you need to make a rational decision, and sometimes your attempts to be purely rational can block the expression of your deeper needs. Just remember that how you feel about something might be just as important as weighing the "facts" in a situation, although you may have to set your feelings aside in some circumstances. Finding ways to remain emotionally centered can be of great benefit to you.

With your Moon in square aspect to Mars you can be emotionally volatile. You may feel overly defensive, and can react to others in inappropriate ways when you feel insecure. Your lack of trust for men can be extremely marked, and you may also find it difficult to trust assertive and powerful women. Any emotional trauma you experienced as a young girl is likely to have penetrated your psyche like an irremovable chard of glass. Your own assertiveness seems to come out in bursts of anger or volatile temperament, attitudes which can alienate others and create a general atmosphere of mistrust and hostility. People may treat you with kid gloves for a while, but ultimately, if you are going to have any type of harmony in the world, you must find a healthy way to deal with your feelings of agitation and frustration. By dealing with your feelings when they arise, you are on the right track. Owning your anger is also important, and by finding positive ways to release anger and hostility you will finally remove that piercing pain you've experienced every time you've tried to open your soul. Because you are crisis-oriented, you might find a wonderful outlet for this energy in some type of crisis intervention work, emergency medicine, sports activities or the like.

Through the energy of your Moon in trine aspect to Jupiter, you have exceptional emotional resilience which is supported by your sense of optimism and confidence. You are more likely to feel that being a woman is an asset, and may find it easier to flow with the emotional tides and cycles of change which are a normal part of your life. Generosity is natural for you, and you have an excellent ability to attract abundance. Nurturing others may flow quite readily. However, it is also easy for you to take things and people for granted, so it's a good idea to take stock of your good fortunes and remind yourself to show gratitude and grace. This can be an aspect of laziness, since positive changes of fortune may seem to occur quite naturally. But if you recognize and develop your strengths, this same energy can provide an endless reservoir of emotional and spiritual strength.

Through the trine aspect between your Moon and Neptune, you are capable of developing an exceptional level of compassion. Your sensibilities are quite remarkable, and this awareness is likely to extend into the realm of strong psychic sensitivity. You may "feel" something long before you get the physical evidence! Your imagination and sense or artistry may be quite evident in your life, and your hypnotic qualities can be quite alluring. Since you may also be quite sensitive to the feelings of others, you may be continually drawn into situations where others pour out their hearts to you, and you have the ability to accept and support them in a special manner. Becoming aware of your emotional boundaries is important, and you may naturally do this by seeking out time alone, periods of meditation, or a comfortable quiet space to relax. You may be quite adept in caring for others, but also have developed a strong awareness of your inner self and needs. You may even find that using the changes in awareness associated with your menstrual cycle helps you enhance your strength, creativity and emotional resilience. As a mother, you may be especially sensitive to the needs and emotions of your children, and can provide a heavenly sense of comfort. Because you innately know these things, you may also tend to do too much. You cherish relationships of all types - friends, family and lovers -  and you may feel that your life is incomplete without an opportunity to share the deep compassion you have for the sanctity of life. You are definitely capable of expressing the true power and energy of the Goddess: the feminine aspect of All That Is. Anyone who looks carefully can see it reflected within your eyes.

With the energy of your Moon in semisquare to Pluto you may have an underlying mistrust of your own femininity. This can be the result of early abusive situations, or a series of relationships which have undermined your trust in yourself and your needs. However, you can change these hurtful patterns and are capable of transforming your life into one of wholeness and personal satisfaction by releasing your old attitudes and accepting yourself and your needs. Learning when to hang on and when to let go of feelings and emotional attachments is one of your biggest lessons.

Your Moon is in the first quarter of the lunar phases, indicating that you approach the fulfillment of your desires and needs in an immediate manner. Your impatience with yourself and with everyone else around you can stand in the way for true fulfillment, but it is that same immediacy which is part of your chart. Your impulsiveness can seem quite "unfeminine" at times, since the old myth of femininity had much to do with "waiting for the prince." You are here to form a new quality of relating to life: the quality of fresh expression and spontaneity. You are here to project a powerful sense of identity, and achieving a sense of wholeness between your inner and outer self is an important part of your self development. The archetypal quality of "The Mother" represented by this moon phase elicits your strong connection to the natural rhythms of conception, creation and birth. You may even enjoy a positive element of freshness and new life in your projection of yourself as a woman. You'll not appreciate others trying to shelter you too much, but may need to find a few touchstones which will allow you to rest until you venture out into your next experience with life, love and happiness. Your weakness may be a lack of objectivity, and it can be difficult to find and own your power until you have mastered some skills which add greater objectivity to your sense of self and reality.

Through the 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.

Through the 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. 

The energy of Venus in square aspect to Neptune stimulates your imagination and romantic spirit. You love delving into fantasy and can be quite dramatic. You may also be tempted to wear a mask in order to cover your feelings of vulnerability. This mask can be in the form of make-up, manner of dress, or different forms of escape. You are sensitive and have such idealism that you may feel true pain when reality slaps you in the face. The problem you may face in creating your true expression as a woman is discovering what it is you truly want and need. The vague sense that it's out there somewhere is not very convincing that you'll ultimately land on the right image or step into the magical spotlight. You need to find a way to allow romance and imagination to blend with what is truly possible. Using this energy to envision yourself as the woman you want to become, and then gradually altering your life to "test" your vision, can allow you to determine the differences between what you do and do not really need. Keeping your emotional boundaries intact is one of your greatest challenges, especially once you fall in love. But you can accomplish it by remaining mindful.

Although 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.

With Neptune in Sagittarius, you are part of the generation of women born from 1970 to 1984 who are just coming into your maturity. Your influence in the realms of education, government and politics will be immense, and as an individual member of this generation, it is imperative that you discover and employ the things you are learning about truth. You have been born at a time when media has had a profound influence upon society, and you will find ways to use the technologies which are developing to shape the lives of people on the earth. You may grapple with the differences between "truth" and "facts" and can either fall victim to false belief systems or create better ones. Women of your generation may rise above the limitations of their mothers and grandmothers because of their educational opportunities, but also because you and they will not accept the same limitations. 

Pluto 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.

You are part of a generation of women born from 1972 through 1984 who have Pluto in Libra and are challenged to break down the barriers within society which inhibit growth and free expression of the human spirit. You may also find that you must tear down old structures which have determined the nature of human relationships in order to heal some of the problems existing among human beings. This can reach from marriage contracts to international relations between governments.




Owning Your Inner Masculine Self

For 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.

Through the 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.

Since 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.

Adding emphasis to your self-expression is your need to be recognized as a thoughtful or intelligent woman which is emphasized through the conjunction of your Sun and Mercury. The value you place upon learning, knowledge or information can be rather intense. You may also be under the impression that if you're smart enough, you'll get what you want from life. That  may be true, but there are many levels of intelligence. One of those levels involves knowing when to stop talking and start listening, so remember that if you feel that you're not really being heard.

Through the influence of your Sun in trine aspect to Neptune you may express the masculine qualities of your ego self by directing your energy toward helping others. You may not need the recognition or the spotlight, although you can be quite gracious in its glow. Your need to integrate the spiritual and creative aspects of your self-expression flows much more easily when you are in harmony with the rhythm of life. Your way of developing your identity may be connected to creating peace and making a difference in the quality of life.

Mars energy 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!

You may be stubborn. When you want something, you can be relentless in your pursuit of it. Through your Mars in Taurus, your embrace of the assertive side of your masculine psyche projects a powerful steadfastness. You may not want to turn the world upside down. In fact, you may do your best to make sure that those things which are important to survival remain. You may also be more comfortable projecting your fighting spirit onto men who seem to enjoy that type of thing. Through this part of your masculine self, you prefer to maintain the status quo. 

Your ability to channel and focus your energy is amazing, and when you need to apply yourself to a task, you can achieve excellent results. Through the influence of Mars in sextile aspect to Saturn, you are capable of developing excellent self-discipline. A beneficial expression of your inner masculine psyche. You also can use positive restraint when necessary, allowing you to take advantage of the growth and maturity which occurs over time, instead of just opting for the thrill of the moment. The bottom line: you're good at being in charge. In fact, you really like it that way!




Developing Your Mind

Education 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!

Although 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. When you want an audience, you can be quite magnetic in your manner of speaking with Mercury in Leo. You can also be an attentive listener when you are interested in anyone or anything, and definitely enjoy being entertained. You're a woman who commands attention through your elegant style and presentation. Sometimes, though,  your own opinions can get in the way of learning something new or different. It is rare that anyone will ever be able to convince you to change your mind unless you want to do so, although you may not be able to take "no" for an answer when you're on the other side of the picture!

You may feel that your mind is constantly whirring with Mercury square Mars. As a result focusing your mental energy can be a bit difficult, but when you do concentrate, it is with intensity. Although you may complain about mental challenges, there is a part of you that enjoys them. You can be argumentative or confrontational in your manner of speaking or communicating, which can create turmoil or alienation if carried to far. Healthy debate is different from hostile accusation.

Your interest in learning, exploring the adventure of life and increasing your understanding is stimulated by Mercury in trine aspect to Jupiter. You may always be on a quest for greater knowledge, and seek out inspiring people and experiences. Your acceptance of different viewpoints and tolerance are enhanced through this quality.

With Mercury in semi-square aspect to Pluto you can become obsessive in your thinking. You may fret over details which make very little difference and miss information which is critical, especially if you've closed your mind or become distracted by your emotions. Sometimes, this aspect indicates difficulty processing information, although it also indicates that you are capable of adapting through training yourself to approach things differently.

The energy 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. You're drawn to learn about the things and people you enjoy, but can be stubbornly resistant to ideas which are foreign to you with the Moon in Leo. Your preferences are quite strong, which is okay, but can get in your way when you need to make adjustments or embrace new information or experiences. You learn best in an environment which affords you a little attention, since praise and recognition for your efforts will stimulate you to go further.

Jupiter 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 quest for knowledge may be like a challenge with Jupiter in Aries. You're like an explorer, ready to go at a moment's notice, looking for the answers to life's mysteries. You'd like to get there quickly because there could be something else more exciting waiting around the bend. Your philosophy may be more "here today, gone tomorrow," and your life experience may have taught you that if you fail to take advantage of opportunity when it knocks, you may not hear it knocking again!

Your strong will and independent way of thinking may have made it difficult to adhere to the educational plan set forth by traditional society. With Jupiter in opposition to Uranus, you need to learn in the school of life, although you can also accomplish an education within the system if you must. Your need to break free of dogmatic thinking is powerful, and you will probably rebel against any school of thought which tries to label you in any way. After all, you're here to break the mold, right?!

The purpose 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.

With Saturn in Cancer you may have a strong affinity for history. Your reverence for the past and your ability to connect what has happened before with what is happening now makes you a prime candidate to teach or guide others, or to get into politics. Whenever you are involved in teaching, you learn more. Although you may find a few particular teachers who inspire you throughout your life, you are most inspired by those who have held tenaciously to other goals until they've seen them accomplished. Sounds like what you wish for yourself....

The areas 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.

You learn best in situations which are peaceful and non-confrontational with Libra ruling your 3rd House. You may enjoy experiencing beautiful music, fine literature, browsing museums and galleries, exploring anything which appeals to your sense of refinement and grace. In school, pleasing your teachers may have been important, and in life, you prefer to think that others are happy in your presence. Although you can be strong-minded, you may not like to argue since it throws you off-balance. With Venus ruling your 3rd House you may enjoy the company of others, and can be quite at home in social situations. School and work may be most enjoyable because you like to be around others and share your ideas.

The energy of Uranus in your 3rd House adds a special ingenuity to your thinking. You love projecting yourself and your thoughts into the future and may be quite inventive and visionary. Although you may be a rebellious and revolutionary thinker, you are a natural scientist, always seeking the yet undiscovered truth. Maintaining your concentration can be difficult, and you need ample opportunities to work at your own pace. However, some structure will help you avoid scattering your mental energy. Leaving room for your spontaneous urges to get up and go is very important, and anyone who is in relationship with you needs to understand that you can change your mind or decide to do something at a moment's notice.

Your 9th 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.

You pride yourself on your original ideas, and may be quite successful in your educational endeavors because you are willing to take a chance and express yourself! With Aries on the cusp of your 9th House you may thoroughly enjoy learning through your life experiences, but school can also be a worthwhile endeavor. Your curiosity about the laws of life may lead you to forge into the study of metaphysics and philosophy with great passion. The influence of Mars as ruler of this house adds strong courage of your convictions, and a powerful faith in yourself and your ideals. You can be an ardent defender of the law, and may also be quite adept at standing up for yourself and your beliefs.

Continuing education is absolutely natural for you with Jupiter in the 9th House. If you are not in school, you are likely to be exploring a new vistas through travel, personal study or enthusiastic discussions with others who share your quest for understanding. You may be involved in teaching, writing or publishing, and can have a special affinity for religious or metaphysical studies. An enjoyment of the diversity and cultural expressions across the globe may prompt you to live abroad, and you may have friends in different countries. Ultimately you may hope to have friends in other galaxies! This placement indicates a keen intuitive ability and sharp awareness of the larger scheme of things. As a result, you may be able to blend your logical and intuitive processes during decision-making, thereby enhancing your judgment.

Through the 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.

You're probably surrounded by friends who share your interests, and those interests usually involve enjoying life. With Gemini on the 11th House, maintaining contact is important, and you may feel that you need a lot of gadgets, like telephones, computers, cars or other devices which help you stay in touch. Your goals may include accumulating these things, but your larger goal is staying connected! With Mercury ruling this house, you may think of a lot of goals you would like to follow, but may not stay focused upon them. You may understand that what you think you become. As you have matured, are realizing the importance of focusing your thoughts more clearly in order to create a life which reflects your true values and needs.

There are no planets in your 11th House, indicating that you may not find it necessary or important to develop a strict set of goals, and that you may not seek out confirmation and support from others in order to reach a sense of fulfillment. To further understand your special interests look to the sign on the cusp of this house explained in the section above, and study the placement of Uranus in your chart to determine where you find your best allies.




Your Special Edge

It's true. 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.

The parts 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.

Your soul is dealing with the quest to achieve harmony through conflict with Scorpio on the cusp of your 4th House. This influence may draw you into several crisis periods over the course of your life, and you may have to cope with experiences of loss or feelings of abandonment which can leave a very deep wound in your psyche. What you are experiencing may not even seem to be that big or important, but your soul remembers power struggles which have gone on for centuries. During this life you need to know true healing, which begins with your release of old pain. The energy of Pluto influences this house, adding a high level of intensity to your quest to understand the deeper meanings of life and to discover the mystery of your soul.

Your soul may yearn to escape the frustrations of the physical plane. With Neptune in your 4th House you're more comfortable when you've moved beyond ordinary reality - when you're in the middle of your favorite creative pastime, listening to beautiful music, watching an enthralling movie - you need to experience transcendence. Unfortunately this is also quite close to negative forms of withdrawal, and you may push yourself away from the rest of the world in your quest to tone down the cacophony of life. Setting your personal boundaries and creating a strong, yet resilient, emotional filter is crucial if you are to develop a sense of wholeness.

The 8th 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.

Your awareness that life exists on many levels is related to the influence of Pisces on the cusp of your 8th House. You can flow with the inevitable changes wrought by life, from birth to death and in between. Transcending your fears or anxieties and allowing yourself to flow into the ultimate source of transformational change may lead you to uncover the mysteries of human sexuality, psychology and healing. You can be highly intuitive, and may gain impressions from people and situations which allow you to penetrate what is hidden beneath the surface. The influence of Neptune as the ruler of this house adds a powerful sensibility to the mysteries of life and allows you to deal with birth, death, sexuality and healing from a spiritual level.

Since you 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.

The 12th 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 everyday reality.

You are quite sensitive with Cancer on the cusp of your 12th House. Although you may protect your sensitivities with an aura of confidence, you feel everything around you. It is important that you have a comfortable and safe environment for your sleeping and resting periods, otherwise, you may not rest at all. Your dreams can be quite vivid and full of emotion, filled with images of days gone by and people from your past. But your super-conscious self may also take you into dream states which are somewhat prophetic. Your Moon is also tied to this house, adding a need to become clear about your subconscious motivations and deeper feelings. When using visualization techniques, it is important to allow your emotions to work for you to attain your desires. If you try to repress your feelings about your desires, you will only experience frustration.

Your desire 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.

The energy 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 intuitive thinking!

Your intuitive function operates most powerfully when you're in the midst of doing something creative. Since your need for creativity is strong with your Moon in Leo, you may spend a great deal of time pursuing and developing your talents. And while you are in the process of fine-tuning your craft - whether you're becoming a more accomplished singer, actress, educator or business leader-- your intuitive insights about when and how to do certain things will give you an added sheen. This is part of your ingenuity and adds a glow which shines from your heart and originates in the heart of divine love. 

There are 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 path.

Your path toward spiritual evolution involves surrendering to the process of complete transformation with your North Node in Scorpio. By participating in experiences which are geared toward healing and regeneration you will not only experience personal growth, but can feel your connection to a higher power more readily. With your South Node in Taurus your tendency may be to pursue avenues which are selfishly possessive or narrowly stubborn. Each time you fall into the trap of extreme willfulness, you may experience profound inner turmoil, since you are learning to surrender to the power of love to help your resolve crises and achieve true healing. 

Uranian 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 possibility!

You've already discovered that you're an intuitive thinker. With Uranus in the 3rd House, you probably cannot imagine trying to make decisions without taking your intuitive promptings into consideration. You can also be quite intuitive about the best ways to connect with other people, and may experience sudden changes in your life due to the influences which occur from networking with others. 

Neptune's 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 doorways!

The influence of Neptune in your 4th House has been explored earlier in this section of your report.

Pluto's 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.

You're quite insightful about how to make your resources work for you with Pluto in your 2nd House. You can see ways to restore what seems useless or to extend the energy of what you possess and may be able to make more things out of a loaf of bread and a can of soup than anybody dreamed possible. You can also be destructive with this energy and can undermine your strength by giving in to vengeful or hateful thoughts about yourself or others.




Nurturing and Creating a Home

Nurturing. 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.

Yet another 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 yourself.

You love to be entertained, and when you need to reaffirm that life is worthwhile, it helps if you're doing something that fills your heart. With the Moon in Leo you hunger most for love, and need ample opportunities to create and experience the many facets of love. To some extent, this may come through your own creative expression, and when you're deeply involved in something, you do put your heart and soul into it. On a broad level, then, it's important that you make some choices which allow you to participate in a career or relationship which feels good. When nurturing others, you provide the generosity and support which encourages them to realize their own potential. As a mother, you are also quite protective and will not take it lightly if anyone or anything threatens your child. At home, you need a favorite chair and a place that is yours where you can stop and relish the pleasures of life. Getting outdoors in the sun and feeling that warm glow around you can be nourishing, too, and you may have your favorite outdoor pastimes which add a special dimension to your life. Take time to attend concerts, go to the movies, or get involved in your community theater group and get on stage yourself!  You know what they say about all work and no play? Well it applies to you double-time! 

Saturn also 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.

With Saturn in Cancer you need a home and sense of family in your life in order to feel secure. This is the structure upon which your overall stability rests. The trap of this placement resides in hanging onto the past, including old emotional trauma. Some of that trauma might not even be your own - many of your anxieties are definitely tied to the things you learned from your parents and grandparents. Remind yourself regularly that you are safe, strong and secure. You may have always been drawn into situations where you're taking care of somebody, but you don't really have to prove your self worth based upon how much you do for everyone else! Even in business settings you may display a caring quality, and can have trouble with a mechanized approach to business. It's easier for you when the people you work with are treated more like family than mere employees. You're definitely capable of bringing a woman's touch into a man's world and may, in the process, teach others about the positive quality of honoring humanity within the work place.

Your 4th 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.

The influence of Scorpio on this part of your chart adds a need for privacy in your home environment. You love being surrounded by things which appeal to your senses - soft fabrics, lush carpets, a fabulous bed - and may feel best around rich, deep colors. You have a natural sense of the energy of the places in which you live and may enjoy working with concepts such as Feng Shui to help harmonize and strengthen the energy of your home. Pluto's influence of your 4th House stimulates a need for healing within your personal space, and you may enjoy using some of the features of your home to help you maintain your physical vitality. A spa, hot tub or sauna would be excellent additions to your home, and you might also enjoy having your own massage table. However, you may have to import the masseur, unless you've gotten a lucky break and discovered a man who just loves to share sensual massage. But that's another story....

Neptune's energy in your 4th House adds a need for a home space which is almost otherworldly. Your home needs to be an escape from the everyday, a place where you can exercise your fantasies and open to your dreams. As a little girl your home life may have been unsettling, particularly if there was illness or some type of family scandal. Uncovering family secrets may, in fact, be the key to freeing your soul of some of those feelings of inadequacy or insecurity. In the process you must also learn true forgiveness while avoiding tendencies to martyr or sacrifice yourself for the good of protecting the family illusion. By opening to your inner self through meditation, creative expression and spiritual development, you can finally achieve the connection to a spiritual home which has called to you since your childhood.




Meeting the World on Your Terms

Career and 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.

The 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.

With Leo influencing your Midheaven you may enjoy achieving some recognition through your career endeavors, even though you may safeguard your private life. If you choose not to follow a career, you are still likely to desire public attention, and can use your charisma to effect changes in your community. Your life path is focused upon connecting to a sense of Divine Presence, and you have the capability to project a power which originates in the heart of divine love. You'll be happiest in careers which allow you to bring focus, strength of character, and a sense of direction. You may enjoy working in the performing arts, although you can also be an effective producer and director. In business you're a natural leader and can act as a force to centralize the focus of others. The energy of your Sun plays an important role in the manner in which you perform on your path toward personal fulfillment. You need to allow your brilliance to shine.

With both your Sun and Midheaven in Leo you will not be satisfied until you've achieved the recognition and respect you feel you deserve. Part of your life path may involve the strong influence you have upon your family, and you may create a legacy which they are proud to honor. In your career endeavors you function best in positions of power and leadership, although you are quite capable of allowing others to take their turn in the spotlight. You may enjoy a career in performing arts, education, politics or business.

The process 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.

One of the reasons you make such a powerful impression on people is because you usually go into situations prepared. Capricorn's influence on your 6th House indicates that you do not mind hard work when it will get you somewhere. You may demand a great deal from yourself, and if you're in positions of management, can also demand a lot from others, too. You may look for ways to take advantage of the talents of others and may be the mistress of utilizing resources, like technology, to make your job easier. Saturn's rulership of this house adds the energy of responsibility to your work ethic, and shows that in order to achieve the success you desire you will have to put forth the  necessary discipline. You might work well in hierarchical situations but will prefer to be near the top of the ladder.

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!

Sagittarius' influence on your 5th House adds a need for adventure in your approach to play, creativity and recreation. When you have time to travel, explore the world, interact with people from different backgrounds, attend workshops or classes or read, your creativity is inspired. You may love getting into nature, and may find that adding a dimension of reaching into unexplored territory is an excellent source for personal regeneration. A little competition can also spur you to reach into your own creative soul and express dimensions of yourself you might otherwise leave unattended. With Jupiter ruling your 5th House you may feel most inspired by situations which open all the fences and allow you to explore freely and independently.

Just because there are no planetary energies in your 5th House, do not despair. This does not indicate that you are somehow lacking in creativity. As you see from the sign on the cusp of your 5th House, your creative inclinations are driven by particular qualities and needs. Explore the different dimensions of the planet associated with your 5th House to gain insight into your creativity. By following these you'll find that you easily unlock your creative potential.

One of the 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.

Well, admit 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!

Your 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.

You have Uranus in Libra, strengthening your need to experience breakthroughs in the realm of relationships. Along with other women born from 1968 to 1975, you've witnessed major changes in personal relationships and their effects upon the whole of society. These changes have also extended into the realm of the law and politics, and are also having a profound effect upon artistic expression. Your revolution will be fought within these realms, and those with Uranus in Libra will incite the changes in the law which have a major effect upon lifestyle and relationship choices. The areas in your own life where you've broken ground in your desire to achieve an awareness of true harmony and beauty are signified by the house in which Uranus resides in your chart. 

The spark of Uranian energy in your 3rd House suggests that your unique ideas and special communicative abilities can be utilized in your career development. You may enjoy working in high-tech or scientific fields, and you may also have plenty of interesting ideas in other areas. A career which allows you to blend your intuitive sensibilities and logical thought processes will be especially satisfying.

The energy 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 wisdom.

You have Chiron in Aries, signifying a need to discover your true courage. Your life purpose is centered around your needs for pioneering into unexplored territory, whether physical or idealistic. Your life work may involve breaking ground, cutting through barriers, or blasting through outworn attitudes. Your head and heart need to be in harmony with one another if you are to succeed in achieving this purpose. 

With Chiron in your 9th House you're searching for answers to all the ultimate questions as part of your quest to discover your life purpose. You may feel a strong urge to travel, desire to learn and yearning to find the teacher whose wisdom will inspire you to find truth. In essence, all these things are inside you, and the travel and learning you may need most to experience will happen on the inner planes. Doing it physically is okay too. It's good practice.




Opening Your Heart

Ah, 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.

The 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!

Sometimes, 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....

The 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.

All the romantic rambling you've heard about love has probably gotten on your nerves. With Venus in semi-square aspect to Saturn you require proof of the reality of love. Of course, the fact that love is not tangible is the first problem. Sure, there are a few tangible things that help to confirm that somebody cares, but you just can't get your hands on love itself. You have to feel it, and that means you have to trust yourself. It's okay to test the trust you have within a relationship. It's probably even necessary. In the interim you have the experience of loving and allowing someone to get close to you. That is the tangible reality. Yet beyond the physical plane is something more, with a value that can be measured only in terms of how much you've opened your heart and listened to the melody of love. You may feel only disappointment if you become too selfish, since the love that vibrantly began will seem to wither. Staying open, allowing the flow - in and out, giving and receiving - will help to remove the blocks and encourage love to grow.

The thrill of loving is pure elixir of life for you with Venus in semisquare aspect to Uranus. You may be a little experimental in your attitudes toward relationships, and love more readily when you feel unrestrained. Sometimes, you're difficult to reach on an emotional level, especially if you're on one of your independent jags. They surface occasionally, and can be disruptive in a relationship which demands the same thing all of the time. If you are to have a successful relationship, you need lots of room to be yourself, to explore your options in the world, and to feel unfettered. The problem is that you may feel this means you cannot tie yourself to one person, at least for very long. After all, what would happen if you missed something?!  You may need to review your attitudes toward commitment, and consider the possibility of loving freely without conditions and expectations. That's a commitment in itself, and requires great diligence to accomplish successfully.

In square aspect to Neptune, your Venusian expression takes on an other-wordly quality. Your yearning may be for that perfect lover whose spirituality, passion, purity of spirit and drive all stem from the highest possible level. Loving in such a manner would seem to remove you from the bondage of ordinary life and transport you into true bliss. Although this seems possible in fairy tales or movies, it's really difficult to find those elements in another human being. You may also operate under the illusion that you must first sacrifice yourself before you are worthy of love. It's all too easy to project unrealistic feelings onto your lover,  and it is just as tempting to try to alter yourself to please a man so that he will love you. Whether those alterations are in your behavior, your appearance or your attitudes, if you submerge your real self beneath the illusions of what you feel will make you more lovable, you're selling out. If you want to experience the ecstasy you dream about, you'll surrender to a love which honors your real needs and learn to avoid situations where you become addicted, co-dependent, victimized or abused. Forgiving the shortcomings of the man you love is one thing;  allowing him to deceive or victimize you is another!  Know when and how to give help, but be careful of emotional rescue ventures!

As one of the generation of women born with Neptune in Sagittarius, you may be intimately involved in reshaping the definition of marriage. Laws which reflect the true nature of loving and making commitments may be difficult to initiate, but are important parts of your task as a collective during this lifetime. On a personal level you may find that your primary drive in relationships involves finding a partner who shares your quest for truth and understanding. To open your heart to real compassion, you need to feel a sense of trust which originates from your common ideals and values. Once your vision is focused with that of your partner, you can create amazing changes which will form the basis of the teachings you pass on to your children and future generations.

With your Moon and Neptune in trine aspect, you may find it easy to trust your feelings when you're opening to love. Your sixth sense about other people is usually quite clear, and when you've found the right partner for your needs, you know. You may still have to watch a tendency to be too emotionally sensitive, but it's not usually a difficult problem.

The image of the perfect man can be rather realistic with your Sun in trine aspect to Neptune. You certainly have your hopes for what you want, but you also allow room for mere humanity. After all, if you share a vision with the man you love, and you can use your combined energies to create that vision, then life can be a wonderful experience. You may even decide that you are perfectly comfortable without a committed relationship, but there are other factors which relate to these needs.

The semisquare aspect between Uranus and Neptune happens about once each century and influences an entire generation or collective group of individuals. In many ways you may feel that you are among the forerunners of a new set of ideals, and may have some conflict between the beliefs and ideals (or lack of them) you were taught by your parents and those you seek for yourself.

The houses 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 sense.

The feeling of opening your heart to love brings pure joy with Sagittarius influencing your 5th House. You've experienced the transformative power of joy more than once in your life, and know that when you reach out and give of yourself to others, the energy you receive in return can be sweet indeed. You may attract a wide variety of relationships over the course of your life, and may be especially interested in relationships with men whose backgrounds are different from your own. There's more adventure that way! You love to travel, and will probably enjoy sharing travel with your sweetheart (although sometimes, traveling alone makes your heart sing, too). When you fall in love, you really go for it; sometimes you may act too quickly, before you've had a chance to think about what you're doing. Just because the guy is gorgeous and knocks your socks off, that does not necessarily mean it's safe to change your life for him!  Jupiter's influence here adds a confidence and enthusiasm to your approach to loving; sometimes it adds too much enthusiasm, so remember to take a deep breath and try to think before you leap from the cliffs of the heart.

You have no planetary energy in your 5th House. There is no need to be alarmed, because this does not indicate that you will be without love in your life. As you've seen above, you have definite inclinations in love relationships. To further understand what you need from a lover and how you can become more adept at giving love, study the planet associated with this house.

The 7th 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.

With the qualities of Aquarius filtered through your 7th House you are likely to attract a partner whose needs for independence and autonomy are as strong as your own. It is imperative that you connect with a mate or husband whom you respect and who will respect you. This will occur most readily once you have developed your own self-respect and when you know how to avoid too much self-absorption. Although you may think you want complete autonomy, you really do love the idea of attentive support from a partner. With the energy of Uranus driving your approach to partnerships, you will be most successful when you develop the experience of unconditional acceptance and learn to project that toward the person who shares your life.

The lack of planetary energy in your 7th House does NOT indicate that you will be without a partner, or that marriage is not suitable. There are millions of married women with no planets in their 7th Houses! To better understand how you approach finding a partner and the type of partner you wish to be, study the meaning of the sign on the cusp of this house and the planet associated with that sign, noted above.

It is 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 chart.

You have Gemini influencing your 11th House, signifying that your friendships are forged through a meeting of the minds. When you get together with your girlfriends, you always have a lot to talk about. You probably have friends from a variety of backgrounds and with myriad interests. With your closest friends you are drawn together because you think alike. Sometimes it may seem that you part and greet one another in mid-conversation, but that's okay. The mental link you have to one another probably keeps the connection strong enough that you don't ever really lose anything in your understanding. Mercury's energy influences your friendships by forging a bridge of understanding, and it is through developing your mental connection that you unlock the doors to your heart. You feel most supported when you know you have somebody who will listen. This is one of the best ways to allow love to flow into your life.

The lack of planetary energy in your 11th House can be indicative of your ability to accomplish many of your aims on your own. There is, however, no particular meaning which is related to a lack of friends or inability to create friendships. Look to the planet which rules this house to understand the qualities you will seek in your friends and the kinds of activities you might prefer to share with them.




Power Issues:  Sex, Money and Control

Personal 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 own terms.

Through your Leo Ascendant you can demonstrate a strong sense of presence. You may feel that you are only powerful when your presence is acknowledged by others and can even be demanding in your desire for attention when you're feeling insecure. The more demanding you become, the less powerful you are. The respect and admiration you desire arises when others show their loyalty from love, not from fear. Although you may think you always operate from a pure heart, take a careful look. Have you, in your need to establish yourself, been too self-absorbed? Self-awareness and self-absorption are very different. In the instance of self awareness, you are also sensitive to the needs and desires of others as individuals. This can be especially trying in relationship to your children. You can be such a marvelous light in their lives, and the path you've forged in the world can provide inspiration to them. If you try to force your will too strongly without honestly assessing what they may need or want for themselves, you may lose their deep trust. You demonstrate your greatest power when your actions, words and attitudes radiate from the heart of love. Then, your self-assurance is genuine and shines brilliantly through a regal personality.

You've learned that your Moon's energy in your 1st House brings a strong sense of emotionality to your personality projection, and if you or your efforts are not appreciated, your feelings will be hurt. This can weaken your sense of power, and may lead to emotional withdrawal on your part. You can also be totally absorbed in the feelings of the moment to have any real perspective concerning the big picture, which can leave you feeling weak or vulnerable. To experience the total power you need in order to be confident and trusting, it is important that you acknowledge your feelings without allowing them to overshadow your judgment. You also need good outlets for your emotional sensitivity, such as working in a profession which allows you to be supportive or understanding of others. But you may have to work hard to keep your own emotional boundaries intact. Part of this will happen through maturity and self-awareness, and you may be more capable and confident about maintaining objectivity as you gain experience. You possess the energy which allows you to fully embrace the dynamics of being a whole woman, and if you can integrate your awareness of the many changes you experience through hormonal shifts, life changes and the cycles of time into your life, you will develop an internal wisdom which is always supportive and strengthening.

With the energy of your Sun in the 1st House, you may feel that you need recognition in order to be powerful. The manner in which you achieve this recognition makes all the difference between a power which is growth producing and a power which is self-destructive. You may be the perfect woman to take on leadership positions, and will probably grow in the process. But you may always sense that you have to keep your ego in check in order to be as effective as you would like. Using your light to guide others may be much more difficult than standing alone in the spotlight. In your relationships, your need for attention or focus on yourself can be problematic, especially if you forget the needs of your husband or mate. However, you will have to acknowledge that some attention and the achievement of your aims is an important part of your life, and you require a relationship which will provide this opportunity. You may also like to be in charge of situations and can learn to assert your will in such a manner that others will be happy to follow your lead.

Mercury's energy in your 1st House brings an opportunity to strengthen your personal power through enhancing your communication skills and improving your mind. Learning may be a lifelong passion for you, and others will learn to look to you to provide information, clarification and understanding. If you're confident in your abilities as a communicator, you may gain power through writing, speaking, public relations, or teaching. However, if you do not yet trust your communicative ability, it's a good idea to develop it because this is one of your keys to establishing an identity which feels right. You may also be quite talkative, and can undermine your power by chattering endlessly about meaningless details or gossip, so try to be aware of the nature of what you're communicating!

The beauty, charm and grace established by the energy of Venus in your 1st House are quite empowering. You don't have to be on magazine covers to feel or be beautiful, but you do have to feel good about yourself, and if you cultivate your best qualities, you will attract exactly what you want and need from life. That's empowering! Developing your self esteem has long ranging benefits, and once you have the key, you may find that you attract others who want to know your secrets. This can also be empowering, and you may even feel better about helping others to develop their own sense of worth and importance. Cooperation and a loving nature are in your power tool kit, and although you may not think as these qualities as powerful, they are ultimately the most powerful of all.

Another power 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.

Through your Leo Midheaven you have a deep fascination with achieving power, and may not rest until you feel that you've accomplished being in control of your own destiny. This can, of course, have strong implications in your career, but it extends into the way you perform in positions of influence within your personal relationships, too. Although you may admire great leaders of history, you also have a deep admiration for those whose creative self-expression has opened the way to their success. The way you give and take orders will make a lot of difference in your sense of personal accomplishment, since you really do want prestige but may find that it comes only when you can lead and follow with equal grace.

The dynamic energy of Mars in your 10th House stimulates a desire for a career which keeps you active. Your drive is matched by the courage to forge a path which allows you to assert your needs and abilities in a strong manner. You're the woman who can be at home with "the good ol' boys" and can match wits (and probably strength of will) with anyone. Work in physical fitness, the military or law enforcement may be good choices. But you may also be fascinated with medical fields and in any capacity can take charge or initiate. Developing positive ways to assert yourself may be necessary if you are to experience the success you deserve, since aggression may seem easier than positive self-assertion. You don't mind taking risks to get ahead.

Saturn conjunct your Midheaven focuses your ambition. You can be quite successful through a professional career path, particularly if you are following a calling which suits your individual needs. Clarifying your motivations will help you determine if you're working toward achievements which will be personally satisfying, but you will probably discover that you simply cannot put a lot of energy into something which does not fit you. Teaching, training and guiding others is an excellent direction for your need to utilize your power, as long as you allow others to grow at their own rates. You may also prefer to work in executive positions or to run your own business. The key to your success is knowing how to use your power effectively.

Your rebellious nature can get in the way of achieving your aims. The energy of Uranus in square aspect to your Midheaven stimulates your need for independence, and sometimes the changes you create or experience can turn your life upside down. You will probably not enjoy a regular 9:00 to 5:00 job, and if given the chance to be more flexible may perform better. But in order to achieve the satisfaction you desire from a career or profession, you need to feel that your efforts stand out from the crowd. It takes some maturity to figure out how to do that without appearing purely disruptive, but you can accomplish it if you desire. You probably don't care about fitting into a mold anyway, and when you learn to use your uniqueness to your advantage, you'll be amazed at the results.

The energy of Neptune in supportive trine aspect to your Midheaven suggests that many of the accomplishments you're making for yourself can pave the way for others. Work that has a spiritual basis or that allows you to reach into the psyche and soul of others, can be personally empowering. You can be quite capable of surrendering your will to the will of a Higher Power in order to achieve your aims. This aspect also underlines the importance of your role in making your dreams happen in harmony with your Highest Needs. However, you can also be unmotivated and may even be lazy, living in a dream instead of making it real. The difference is applied effort.

You are likely to rise to positions of prominence with Pluto in sextile aspect to your Midheaven. This is particularly true if you dedicate your life to bringing about positive transformation. Whether you accomplish this through the healing arts, performing arts,  through raising a family or doing something else which accomplishes renovation - you need to know the satisfaction which comes from utilizing your personal power.

Someone 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.

The qualities of Virgo radiate through your 2nd House, adding discrimination to the manner in which you use your resources. Whether you're expending time, money or energy, you like to know where it's going and what effect it will have. You may be quite adept at handling money, and are not likely to waste your resources on something of poor quality or questionable value. You're the woman who'll take the time to read about your purchases or to investigate the feasibility of a projected budget. Mercury's energy influences this house, stimulating your need to gain an understanding of the best ways to handle your finances. But you  are also learning about the power of your mind in attracting the kind of resources you need. Your self esteem can be strengthened by maintaining a keen awareness of the manner in which you use your available resources. Getting the best use out of what you have makes a lot of sense to you.

Pluto's energy in your 2nd House brings control issues into the realm of personal finances. It is here that you may experience great challenges, and you may have some extreme experiences learning about the real nature of money and materiality. You can attract resources through working in fields which involve transformation, healing and renovation, and may revitalize your own worth by allowing your needs to be in charge of your own money. You can share but may not want to share everything. That's okay, as long as you're honest about it! 

Resources 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.

Here you 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.

The influence of Pisces on your 8th House adds a need for drama and romance as key ingredients in your intimate relationships. You may think this is the way everyone approaches intimacy, but it's not true!  To unlock your deeper yearnings, you might enjoy role playing or sharing your fantasies. You may also be very drawn to a partner who shares similar spiritual aspirations. It's important to learn the difference between spiritual bonding and fanciful romance, and it may take some time before you've clarified them. Within the union you desire, both partners surrender to the experience of love and allow the flow of love itself to change them. You may be attracted to men who are wounded in some way, and may feel that loving  can heal them. This may be true, but if you sacrifice yourself in the process, you'll only be left with feelings of disappointment. The same is true in matters of joint finances, because you can go too far trusting your partner financially. Even if he manages the money, you need to sit down on a regular basis to discuss where you are so you are not shocked into disbelief if problems arise. But you need to also avoid making your partner the scapegoat for your financial problems.

Since you 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!

Mars energy 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.

With Mars in Taurus, you may not feel comfortable in hot pursuit. You would prefer to draw your lover into your nest where you can then take charge. You do like sex; in fact, you are extremely sensual and can be a very patient lover with a strong sexual appetite. But you can also be extremely possessive, which can be your downfall. If you are feeling insecure, feelings of jealousy and possessiveness can emerge and undermine your sense of personal worth. And if there is trouble in a relationship, you can also become resentful, an emotion which drains your vitality. Once you've established a sense of personal security, these negative manifestations are diminished, and you may feel that you can build a more stable power base. But this requires trust in yourself and a desire to share your energy, time and resources.

The cooperative sextile aspect between Saturn and Mars indicates that you can be effective in controlling your own life. Your ability to respect the limitations of others and to honor your own is part of this self-direction, but so is your ability to take charge when necessary. You probably like being in positions of power, and can be a very effective leader or executive. Dealing with authorities is reasonably easy for you, too, although you still may have your qualms about whether or not some people in power really deserve to be there!

Saturn 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.

When you are safe and secure at home, you feel powerful. This is a function of your Saturnian need for security filtered through the sign of Cancer. When your parents show their approval, you are especially confirmed. This is okay; there's nothing to be guilty about. But why is it that if you veer away from the path set by those who have gone before that you get nervous? As long as you use your sense of self-control to help you maintain the stability and serenity you need in your own life, you're in a pretty good space. But try to avoid falling into the same ruts over and over again. And remember that you cannot take care of everybody else by telling them what to do or keeping them protected from the world forever. Sometimes those little birdies just have to fly on their own. So do you!

You may be plagued with low self esteem through the influence of Venus in semisquare aspect to Saturn. When you're feeling low, it's tempting to withdraw and limit yourself. This is definitely not a power statement! You can become empowered by sharing yourself, your talents, your resources with the world. Selfish attitudes, hanging onto resentment, irresponsible spending and greediness are symptoms that your power base needs to be re-evaluated.

You may spend a lot of energy trying to get out of responsibilities with Jupiter in square aspect to Saturn. If you were to apply the same amount of energy toward those same responsibilities, you would feel self-confirmed and accomplish more in the long run! The easy way out is not the path of greatest reward for you, and waiting for somebody to come along and rescue you will only result in disappointment and lack of self-trust. You may not trust your own abilities, but how will you know whether or not you're capable unless you try? And if you refuse to try because you're not an expert, well, you already know the answer to that one. Genius is created, it doesn't just "happen".

Sometimes your rebellious attitudes get you into trouble with Saturn in square aspect to Uranus. You can feel your own power dwindling away when you stay stuck in a tired, outworn situation for too long, and if you fail to act, will become more frustrated with each and every passing day. When you learn to identify the restrictions, expectations and problems inherent in any situation before you make a commitment, you can deal with them better. Sometimes you simply have no choice but to take on burdens you just don't want to carry. But you can alter your attitudes and carry them your own way. Embracing your need to change is grow is also part of the equation. Once you've satisfied your responsibilities, you have more freedom. But if you ignore them, shirk them,  or pawn them onto some willing man, it may be that man who gets the chance to move ahead while you're stuck in the kitchen washing dishes. Once you learn to blend independent and innovative action with personal responsibility, there is no end to what you can accomplish. Now, that's empowering!

Saturn conjunct your Midheaven focuses your ambition. You can be quite successful through a professional career path, particularly if you are following a calling which suits your individual needs. Clarifying your motivations will help you determine if you're working toward achievements which will be personally satisfying, but you will probably discover that you simply cannot put a lot of energy into something which does not fit you. Teaching, training and guiding others is an excellent direction for your need to utilize your power, as long as you allow others to grow at their own rates. You may also prefer to work in executive positions or to run your own business. The key to your success is knowing how to use your power effectively.

Plutonian 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.

The power influence of Pluto in your 2nd House has been interpreted earlier in this section of your report.

Sometimes your rebellious attitudes get you into trouble with Saturn in square aspect to Uranus. You can feel your own power dwindling away when you stay stuck in a tired, outworn situation for too long, and if you fail to act, will become more frustrated with each and every passing day. When you learn to identify the restrictions, expectations and problems inherent in any situation before you make a commitment, you can deal with them better. Sometimes you simply have no choice but to take on burdens you just don't want to carry. But you can alter your attitudes and carry them your own way. Embracing your need to change is grow is also part of the equation. Once you've satisfied your responsibilities, you have more freedom. But if you ignore them, shirk them,  or pawn them onto some willing man, it may be that man who gets the chance to move ahead while you're stuck in the kitchen washing dishes. Once you learn to blend independent and innovative action with personal responsibility, there is no end to what you can accomplish. Now, that's empowering!

Your rebellious nature can get in the way of achieving your aims. The energy of Uranus in square aspect to your Midheaven stimulates your need for independence, and sometimes the changes you create or experience can turn your life upside down. You will probably not enjoy a regular 9:00 to 5:00 job, and if given the chance to be more flexible may perform better. But in order to achieve the satisfaction you desire from a career or profession, you need to feel that your efforts stand out from the crowd. It takes some maturity to figure out how to do that without appearing purely disruptive, but you can accomplish it if you desire. You probably don't care about fitting into a mold anyway, and when you learn to use your uniqueness to your advantage, you'll be amazed at the results.




Embracing Your Divine Self

In western society today it's okay to admit that women are Goddesses. This, in itself, implies that the power of The Source may not be solely masculine. In essence, this power contains All That Is, but as a woman, you express it through your Goddess Self. This part of yourself is always there when you feel abandoned or alone to give you comfort. Your Goddess Self is standing firmly beside you when you face a major challenge, sharing her strength and support. Your Goddess Self opens the doors to Truth and Understanding. She is the essence of all that is Love. Look in the mirror. Stare deeply into your own eyes and you will see her reflected back at you.

When you need to get in touch with your inner being, an exercise in guided imagery can help you make the transition from your everyday thinking to heightened awareness. Take a few minutes to make this journey. Before you begin, find time to be alone. Sit or lie down in a comfortable position in a place that feels safe to you. Take three deep breaths. With each breath, release the tension from your body as you exhale. As you inhale, fill yourself with energy, light and inner calm. Then, close your eyes, and take one more relaxing breath.

Imagine that you are a young priestess, preparing yourself to enter the sacred rites of purification which will give you courage and vision for the challenges ahead of you. You know that the experiences of life will require you to stand up for yourself and your ideals. In preparation for your ritual, feel yourself being cleansed. You are dressed in beautiful robes and a necklace of platinum and rubies is placed around your neck. You hear the music for the ritual dance playing in the background, and as you emerge from your dwelling, lead the line of others who will join you in the dance. You begin the motion around the circle. As the energy builds, you dance into the center of the circle. Feel yourself being transported into another realm. As you rise above the earth, your vision is clear and your heart is strong. When you arrive into the new dimension, you see a regal woman, dressed in golden robes and fine jewels. She takes your hands and invites you to dance with her. At first you do not hear music, but then there is light all around you and music playing which seems to come from the heart of this creature. As she dances about, the light and music seem to flow around her. You playfully dance with her, and realize that somehow she seems familiar. She smiles and laughs and then says to you,  "Is it not wonderful to be such a magical creature?!" And then you know. She is your alter ego. Your experience with her reminds you that you carry the light and magic everywhere you are.
