In Part One of the interpretations you will read two sections concerned with your individual traits.

The first section describes your ego (sun), emotional make-up (moon), learning and intellectual orientation (Mercury), relationships and sociability (Venus), and the expression and focus of
your physical energy (Mars).

The second section describes how well you deal internally with the external situations that you experience in life. Your capacity for happiness (Jupiter), ability to tolerate restrictions and
frustrations (Saturn), how you are associated with or relate to new or innovative ideas and methods, and radical ideas and events that upset the status quo (Uranus), how you are associated
with or affected by public ideals, morality, and spirituality (Neptune), and how you are associated with or affected by public policies toward crime, toward the power of government and
industry, and toward exploration, development, conservation and distribution of natural resources (Pluto).

The sun rules will power and ego. It is the core of your potential and uniqueness as an individual; who you are and what you are about. It represents the main direction and focus you want
your life to take, and your determination to accomplish what you set out to do. It is your personal honesty and integrity, and the ability to command respect and authority, to impress and
influence others.

As the first sign of the zodiac, Aries represents the first stage in the evolution of man and his place in the universe. The raw energy of life itself, which is the first step in being part of the
universe, is evident in the character and make-up of Aries people. Babies think of themselves as the center of everyone else's universe. As they grow older, they learn that they are not the
center but part of a family group. It is the karmic responsibility of the Aries-born to accept the idea that they are not the center of the universe but part of the larger social order of all men.
Aries personalities who do not develop this kind of maturity are demanding and infantile in their behavior. They want what they want, when they want it. The vital life force that is their
celestial heritage can either be used to inspire others as well as themselves, or it can be turned inward to reflect only their own selfish needs, and as a result, they fail to evolve as

Aries people are doers. They set out to accomplish things and are determined to succeed one way or another. The astrological symbol for Aries is the Ram and, considering the sheer force
of energy and enthusiasm by which they accomplish their goals, it is not off the mark to suggest that they "ram" their way to success. They must, however, learn the difference between
being confidently aggressive--a responsible "take-charge person" on whom others rely to get things moving-- and being rudely aggressive-- a "know-it-all" who is insensitive to the feelings
as well as the wisdom of others.

Aries individuals react in a physical way to everything they experience in life. That is, before they assess the practicality or worth of what they are doing, before they sort out their true
emotions, and, before they take time to reason things out intellectually, their tendency is to shoot first and ask questions later. Their passionate nature is inspiring and flattering to others,
but unless impatience and rash behavior are curbed, their unbridled enthusiasm backfires when they lose interest just as quickly as they gained it. Theirs is the astrological sign of the
soldier but in their haste, they forget the practicality of being adequately armed before rushing headlong into physical or verbal combat. They quickly forget frustration and anger. Since
theirs is essentially a generous nature, their selfishness is usually a result of carelessness rather than intentional unkindness.

Active, fiery Mars rules Aries and indeed, Aries people are high-spirited, energetic individuals ready to try anything at least once. Courageous, optimistic, and friendly, they are lively
participants in the everyday bustle of life, maintaining a frantic pace others find difficult to match. Constant physical activity works off excess energy, and its vitalizing influence is
important to their intellectual and creative endeavors. It is usually the energetic Aries who is willing to start projects others would be afraid to tackle. However, it is also Aries who often
fails to finish things when too many details demand attention or they simply lose interest. In spite of the physical energy associated with Aries, they are not above using the inability of
others to keep up with them as an excuse for their own idleness. If they expect others to provide them with constant stimulation and are unwilling to find their own diversions, they
become lazy. Cut off from physical activity, they become depressed, unproductive, and overweight.

They are eager athletes and generous players. They enjoy the challenge of a tough contest, but they can be so stimulated that they become too aggressive. Aries rules guns and weapons, so
it isn't surprising that many Aries individuals enjoy hunting. Combative by nature, they also enjoy boxing, wrestling, and most team sports. They are apt to be mechanically inclined and
adept at arts and crafts, typing, working with machinery, playing musical instruments, or performing magic tricks. They have a tendency to allow their enthusiasm to exceed their actual
ability. Before taking something apart, they don't stop to wonder if they can put it back together.

Aries colors are red and white. Vulnerable parts of the body are the head and face. As a sign of this celestial association, many Aries individuals are born with a birth mark on their head or
face. Headaches, black eyes, nose bleeds, and insect bites are common Aries complaints. The birthstone for Aries is the diamond. The tremendous heat and pressure that nature exerts in
turning carbon into hard, brilliant diamonds represent the strength and physical force in the Aries-born. Flowers for Aries include the poppy (red), geraniums, honeysuckle, and hollyhocks.

The moon rules desire as opposed to ego, need as opposed to expediency or reason. It describes how you feel about yourself, how you handle relationships, and how you emotionally
respond to situations and experiences. It describes the flow of your daily functions; physical, emotional, and mental. The moon represents your residence and domestic environment. It rules
babies and young children, your mother and other important females in your life.

Those born with the moon in a Fire sign want to turn their feelings into physical experiences. They do not initially view their desires from the standpoint of practicality, emotional
commitment, or as lessons to be learned. Before anything else there has to be action, some form of instant physical gratification. As lunar Fire sign personalities, those born with moon in
Sagittarius are idealistic and romantic. Their risk-taking, adventurous spirit and magnanimous generosity are a curse as well as a blessing. It leaves them vulnerable to those who exploit
their generosity, but it is also the combination of spirit and attitude needed for enormous success in enterprises that more cautious people would be afraid to try. They are open and honest
with a tendency to be too candid at times, especially in situations that require a more diplomatic approach. Impatience can be the biggest stumbling block to success. They are not reluctant
to make long-term emotional commitments, but relationships or situations that do not encourage them to retain a certain amount of personal freedom, are not likely to last long.

Sagittarius moon personalities are emotionally adaptable to changing circumstances and different relationships. A duality of nature makes them appear fickle and emotionally insecure while
at the same time, steadfast, and independent. Readily impressed by those with power and status, they seek to associate with such people to increase their own advancement; one of their
main goals in life. Concerned with making an impression on others, they may be guilty of inflating their knowledge and importance. Attracted to architecture, art and design many of them
also have talent for mimicry and acting. For these lunar personalities, the best opportunities are in writing, teaching, performing, sales, education and communication.

Women with Sagittarius moon make better friends than lovers, though their restlessness may lead to many sexual adventures. Friendship is very important to them and their temperament
is not well suited to domestic life. Men with Sagittarius moon are inveterate chasers of the ideal woman. Their emotional nature is uncomplicated, loyal, and at times, amazingly

Mercury indicates mental outlook, intellectual endeavors, the way you think and communicate. It represents ideas, methods, and information. It rules your hands and thus your manual
dexterity and mechanical skills. Mercury also describes transportation; that is, how you get where you're going physically and mentally. Do you speed with all possible haste or amble
along taking a few detours here and there?

Individuals with Mercury in Aries want to give full and enthusiastic expression to their thoughts and ideas. For them, the decision-making process is immediate. They avoid being
subjected to protracted discussions or lengthy, detailed investigations preferring to leave such time-consuming situations to others. Their mind can be brilliant and sharp, but either their
ideas, or the manner in which they express those ideas, can often lack subtlety and refinement. In some cases, despite apparent brilliance, they lack the organization necessary for their ideas
to be of practical use to others. Mercury in Aries indicates individuals with acute senses, a certain amount of nervous tension, and frequently, a very quick temper. Their manner of learning
and transportation tends to be rushed. They want to get where they are going as fast as possible.

Venus rules your social attitudes and behavior, and your aesthetic tastes and inclinations. It is female relationships and social interactions at every level. Venus indicates your values. It
describes romance, marriage and other partnerships, capacity for humor, and the pursuit of pleasure.

The social attitudes and behavior of these individuals is profoundly influenced by their emotional state. Though the Piscean influence implies a certain level of shyness, this is not always
the case. These individuals love to have other people around, and enjoy being part of the interaction that accompanies many activities and dramatic involvements. However, they are
severely hurt if a relationship does not go well, and as a result, they may be very reluctant when it comes to making new associations. Their compassionate nature makes it difficult for
them to be harshly judgmental and discriminating in choosing companions. This is unfortunate since they seem to effortlessly attract people who take advantage of them. They may
possess uncanny instincts regarding people in other ways however. They may have remarkable skill, for example, when it comes to putting together the right people in the right situations.

Mars rules physical energy and efforts. It describes the strength and direction of the physical force that drives your ego, fires your emotions, and encourages your mental endeavors and
communicative skills. It describes male relationships and associations, risk-taking inclinations, and the physical challenges you are likely to encounter.

The energy of those with Mars in Pisces is highly influenced by their emotional state and, too often, at the mercy of the environment in which they operate. They can easily be inspired as
well as inspiring, and many possess outstanding creative and artistic talent. Their instinctive reactions are keen, as is their power of turning abstract concepts into reality. The problem they
invariably face is that they find it difficult to accomplish things either because they are too lazy, or lack the necessary confidence to act. As a result, they can waste their talents and skills
for want of a good push to get started. Many develop an inner strength that is remarkable. As if to confront potential physical weakness, they engage in high-risk activities.

Jupiter rules your potential for growth and expansion on many levels; physical, intellectual, spiritual, cultural, and the accumulation of material assets, power, and status. It describes your
optimism and aspirations. It represents your father and his position in society.

Individuals with natal Jupiter in Sagittarius gain personal growth and expansion through travel, education, and communication. They enthusiastically participate in a wide variety of
activities for business as well as pleasure. There is great generosity of spirit and attitude. However, if circumstances in their background or development force them to turn inward, they are
capable of going to the opposite extreme, becoming miserly and withdrawn. The optimism of Jupiter indicates willingness to take risks, and it often includes the luck to come out ahead
when they do take a chance.

Saturn rules responsibilities, restrictions and limitations you are apt to encounter, and the lessons you must learn in life. It does not deny or diminish imagination, inspiration, spirituality,
and good fortune but it does demand that these things be given structure and meaning.

Individuals with natal Saturn in Taurus find it difficult to do something for nothing. They need tangible thanks and appreciation. They have to measure themselves; who they are, what they
do, and what they have in relation to the rest of the world. One way or another life presents them with situations in which they regret that a more spiritual or philosophical approach was
not or could not be used in measuring their own worth or the relative worth of others.

Uranus rules personal as well as societal freedom. It indicates originality of thought and expression. In society it rules radical ideas and people as well as revolutionary events that upset
established structures. Uranus takes approximately seven years to transit one sign, taking about 84 years to complete all twelve signs. Since groups of people with Uranus in the same sign
are separated by 84 years, the influence of this planet in a sign is generational. The personal implications of Uranus in your life are described by its house position and the aspects it makes
with other planets in your natal chart. It describes areas of unpredictability, and where you or your life style may be different than those around you. It relates to the unusual or unique.
Friends and associations to which you belong are also indicated, as is your potential involvement with science and technology, computers, and the media.

The generation of individuals born with natal Uranus in Taurus do not care to make changes for the sake of making changes, nor do they accept originality just because it is different. For
them, changes and innovations must have structure and purpose. Freedom is encouraged if responsibilities are also accepted. The importance of theories are recognized but only to the extent
that their practical application is considered feasible.

Neptune rules those who are oppressed or abandoned; the misfits of society. On a higher level it rules visionaries, and those who are glamorous and charismatic. It represents spirituality,
mysticism, and ideals. Neptune is in one sign for approximately thirteen years, taking about 164 years to complete its cycle through all twelve signs. Since 164 years separate people born
during its transit of one sign and those born when it returns, Neptune's significance in any sign is described as generational or historical. On a personal level, Neptune's house position and
the aspects it makes with other planets in your natal chart will describe spirituality, abstract thinking, illusion, disillusionment, and other areas of your life where things aren't always what
they seem. It rules derangement, guilt, persecution, and describes the potential for experiences related to confinement, abandonment, and addiction or physical intolerance to drugs.

The last period of Neptune in Pisces was 1847-1862. Neptune and Pisces rule religion, spiritualism, drugs, illusion and confusion. In the 1800's Bernadette Soubirous of Lourdes
announced her visions of the Virgin Mary. Horace Wells, a pioneer in anesthesia, was jailed while under the influence of chloroform. He later committed suicide in a fit of apparent

Pluto takes approximately 248 years to make one cycle through all twelve signs. The period Pluto spends in each sign can vary from twelve years to thirty two years due to the eccentricity
of its orbit. Like atomic energy (a force ruled by Pluto), the presence and direction of Pluto's energy are never obvious until it is used. Pluto's influence in any sign is interpreted as
generational or historical. In your personal life, Pluto's significance is interpreted from its house position and the aspects it makes to other natal planets in your horoscope. Pluto rules
intense energy, and describes the areas in which you consciously or subconsciously seek to exercise power or control. Pluto is also linked to your karmic responsibility, and in this respect,
it describes the areas where you must gain the deepest level of understanding.

Pluto's last period in Taurus was 1851-1882. Taurus is pragmatic and materialistic. During the period of Pluto in Taurus the application of physical scientific principles fostered the
invention of machines that made industrialization possible. The meteoric rise of capitalism during this time was fueled by the unprecedented growth of industry and finance.

In Part Two you will read about the twelve houses of the horoscope. The houses represent areas of life in which you operate on a daily basis. You will read descriptions of how you handle
the circumstances you encounter in each of these areas, according to your nature, personality and other traits as they are outlined in Part One.

The first house and the sign that rules the first house, which is also known as the Ascendant or Rising sign, describes your outer personality and physical attributes. To some extent it also
describes your health and the type of illnesses you may experience.

A Cancer Ascendant indicates those who are dedicated to satisfying their personal ambitions. However, they can appear so vulnerable that it is difficult for others to determine just how
determined or strong they really are. They can be quite circumspect and hesitant to reveal their true goals until they are certain of success. There is potential they will have traumatic
partnerships, especially marriage. Many of them prefer to marry late in life, and tend to select older or more mature partners or those who represent an authority figure.

They are emotionally oriented and may attempt to hide this vulnerability behind a facade of forcefulness even though, more often than not, the ploy is unsuccessful. Emotional
vulnerability does not deny personal magnetism or ambition. In fact their emotional commitment to something often causes them to work twice as hard as anyone else, becoming quite
successful in the bargain. Home is not just where their hearts are, it is usually where they want to physically spend most of their time and attention.

Cancer is ruled by the moon, which implies strong nurturing instincts that are evidenced in their caring, sympathetic personalities. In return, they also seek to be "mothered" and may be
guided in life by a strong person (usually female) who fills this role. Their personalities are subject to great changes. Consciously or subconsciously they are highly influenced by others.
They may, for example, adopt the latest fashions or mode of behavior whether or not it is personally flattering, or they may pursue certain activities they feel give them social status rather
than being something they may truly enjoy.

They are apt to possess culinary skills, and design or architectural ability. Whether or not they have talent in these areas, they are apt to have great interest in them. Roundness of face,
pale, sensitive skin, and baldness or finely textured hair are physical attributes identified with Cancer Ascendant. Their bodies have a strong tendency to retain water. Their emotional
orientation is indicative of an addictive nature, which means it is difficult to escape a battle with excess weight or addictive substances. The breasts, stomach, and digestive system are apt
to be their most physically vulnerable areas.

The second house describes material assets, how you handle monetary income, and the potential ways it may be earned. It also indicates the values and priorities you establish throughout

LEO on 2nd HOUSE
Leo ruling the second house indicates individuals with a need for possessing advantages. These advantages are linked to their egos and are not necessarily always represented by money or
material assets. These individuals may, for example, be more interested in gaining power or personal status by having important friends or acquaintances. Their schemes for attaining what
they want can be original and creative, as well as grandiose and unrealistic. Their goals are not always self-centered. They can be very altruistic and include charitable or philanthropic
endeavors. How well they handle what they gain, or even if they will succeed in getting what they want, is another matter and not determined solely by Leo's influence on the second
house. The point is, that they tend to measure their own self worth by material possessions, power or status, or the grandness of what they are able to accomplish.

The third house describes your mental state, intellectual orientation, self-expression and communication, early education, mechanical dexterity and skills, immediate environment
(neighborhood), and siblings. It indicates physical actions, and transportation, especially within your immediate environment. To a certain extent the third house also describes the job or
health of your father.

LEO on 3rd HOUSE
Leo ruling the third house indicates individuals who are likely to assert themselves and their ideas through all kinds of communication networks they set up, and by being (or trying to be)
everywhere at once. Their need for self-expression goes beyond mere desire. Thoughts and ideas are the direct expression of their egos. In turn this implies they need to find ways to express
themselves as a means of preserving their egos. They want to develop their ideas, but it doesn't necessarily mean they will seek a formal education. Nor does the desire to assert their ideas
signify they will seek public recognition. They may be content, for example, with a simple thing like keeping a diary. If they have talent their egos find adequate expression in artistic
endeavors. There is likely to be much interaction with others in their immediate vicinity such as family members or neighbors. Their facility and need for communication may turn them
into constant travelers, letter writers, and telephone users. They enjoy dealing with information and ideas.

The fourth house describes your residence, domestic environment, and family members, especially your mother. It indicates the beginning as well as the end of various cycles in your life.

Virgo ruling the fourth house indicates those who are likely to prefer working at home or spend a great deal of time with hobbies or projects at home. They often possess extensive
collections of magazines and other factual material. If they happen to be more mechanically inclined than intellectually oriented, their homes become bases for tinkering with mechanical
devices, the most popular of which are automobiles. Because of the sensitive, critical nature of Virgo, its influence implies they have a critical eye toward certain aspects of their
households. They may, for example, have a compulsion to maintain neat well-organized homes. They allow their homes to be used for community meetings or other neighborhood
projects. The negative potential of Virgo's influence can mean arguments or separation from siblings, as well as estrangements and disagreements with neighbors. Virgo's influence
suggests that the domestic nature of these individuals can be very restless, indicating frequent changes of residence, frequent alterations to their homes, or maintaining more than one

The fifth house describes your creative talent and imaginative powers, capacity for enjoyment and the pursuit of pleasure, romance, children, and speculative ventures.

Libra ruling the fifth house indicates the possibility of individuals who can raise the pursuit of pleasure to a fine art. They are likely to have the capacity to genuinely enjoy the physical
pleasures that life has to offer, and are often just plain lucky as well. They love to be dressed in the very best and most beautiful clothes, and to attend the very finest and most elegant
places to dine and be entertained. They usually have such wonderful manners and personal charm others don't notice or become offended if they happen to overindulge themselves. They are
among the world's best and most romantic lovers, and their conquests often don't seem to mind being only one in a long line of romantic partners. The negative potential can mean
inability to enjoy things, problems with children or romance, and bad luck in speculative ventures. A fifth house Libra influence indicates those who are very artistic and may be talented
stage or costume designers, musicians, writers or illustrators. They are apt to have wonderful social rapport with children, understanding instinctively what will amuse and entertain them.

The sixth house describes your job, daily responsibilities (paid and unpaid), and those who work for or with you. It also represents your health, and physical fitness.

Sagittarius ruling the sixth house indicates individuals with a strong streak of independence that urges many of them to operate their own businesses rather than work for others. However
even those don't mind being employed by others, are still likely to have a very independent attitude toward work habits. They are happiest when allowed to work unsupervised, set their
own pace, decide their own deadlines, and fix their own schedules. The negative potential can mean those with health problems caused by overindulgence. Their job performance may suffer
from chronic disorganization or procrastination, or a too-confining work environment. They prefer jobs that involve selling, sports, traveling or publishing. They also enjoy consulting,
law, education, religion, and art. They are apt to be animal lovers, though as animal trainers they may lack the urge to maintain the constant discipline needed for control. The same thing
may be said about their personal lives and relationships with those who work for or with them.

Moon in the sixth house indicates vulnerability to a continuing variety of medical complaints, especially stomach or digestive disorders. The ailments of these individuals are usually not
major threats but can disrupt their work and routine schedules. They are apt to operate a business from their home, or seek jobs related to homes, food, family life, women, or children.
They develop mothering instincts and other strong emotional identification toward those who work for or with them. They may work better with women than with men. Work habits may
be inconsistent as is their ability to stay in jobs. Their general health and psychological outlook are strongly affected by their work, and when the work environment or responsibilities are
upsetting for some reason, inefficiency and absences are the result.

Moon trine Mercury indicates those with sound, balanced minds well integrated with their emotions. They have ability to develop organizational techniques, as well as the capacity to
ascertain and analyze details even if they make no attempt to keep track of these details. Though it may not be deliberate manipulation on their part they usually know just what to say and
when to say it. Instinctively knowing what others want to hear and their clever communication skills are the keys to their success.

Moon square Venus indicates individuals who find it difficult to gain the cooperation of others. They have to prove themselves in some way before they are accepted or helped, and even at
that, their success is more often a result of their own efforts than because others went out of their way to assist them. Sometimes they are discouraged in reaching their personal goals
because of financial and family burdens that slow them down. However, the energy of frustrations in this respect is often turned into constructive channels that lead to their ultimate

MOON square MARS
Moon square Mars indicates those who usually succeed because of their energetic and tireless perseverance. If they try ten things, maybe only one will work, but in the end that one thing
will be what matters. They are inclined to aggressiveness and even rudeness, quick temper, and the inclination to be too hasty in judgments, allowing their emotions to overrule logical
thought. Once they control haste, anger or impatience, their physical and emotional energy begins to work for them and not against them, and they accomplish everything they set out to

Moon conjunct Jupiter indicates those with enhanced, and in some cases, excessive emotions and desires. Sometimes a too high opinion of themselves can spoil their wonderful sense of
humor and compassionate natures, but as a rule, these individuals are very generous with the capacity to enjoy the best things in life. They have respect for knowledge and many develop
into serious scholars while others have a tendency to become pseudo intellectual.

Jupiter in the sixth house indicates those who require much latitude in their work. Many of them want to operate their own business. When employed by others however, they are happiest
when unsupervised, able to work at their own pace, make their own deadlines, and allowed to take at least some liberty with tasks and projects. They prefer working with the public and in
highly visible areas. Travel or publishing may be related to their job. They may be employed by relatives from their mother's side of the family. Though they may tend to exaggerate their
own importance at times, they are cheerful and optimistic toward those who work for or with them. The negative potential includes chronic disorganization and procrastination when it
comes to work, and health problems that result from overindulgence.

The seventh house relates to marriage and partnership or joint ventures of any kind. It describes how you interact with people and how others tend to regard you. The seventh house is
associated with legal matters, negotiations, contracts, and all open confrontations, pleasant as well as adversarial.

Capricorn ruling the seventh house has many implications concerning the marital situation of these individuals. One of the first considerations is that they are not apt to meet with good
fortune if they marry too young or without a great deal of consideration. There is also the possibility they will marry someone older or more mature. If there are negative factors in their
personalities or backgrounds it can mean marriage and its attendant responsibilities may seem so severe as to prohibit their ever attempting to marry. Yet another potentiality is that either
they or their marriage partners will view marriage as a means of obtaining security. There is no direct implication of whether they are the ones to embark on such a venture, or the ones
destined to be married for their money or status. Capricorn's influence on the seventh house does not mean marriage will be unhappy and indeed, it may be stable, enduring, and become
happier as the years go by. However, others may tend to regard their marriages as restrictive, too formal or somber. It may be difficult for them to enter into light-hearted relationships, and
whether they mean to or not, may acquire responsibilities for people in whom they have no special interest.

The eighth house is related to taxes, debt, death, legacies, and the income you receive through marriage or business partner(s). It describes your resourcefulness, and your ability to develop
and use material assets as well as personal skills and abilities. The eighth house also indicates sexual attitudes and behavior.

Aquarius ruling the eighth house indicates those with unpredictable or unusual attitudes concerning sex that may, in fact, have a tendency to purposely run contrary to current popular
opinion. They may, for example, be rigid when prevailing notions accommodate laxity in sexual behavior. They may then become very liberal when society imposes too many
restrictions. Whatever their stated views, they can suddenly change and, in addition, are apt to experience unusual sexual situations. The influence of Aquarius can also mean that the
circumstances of their inheritance, joint finances, debts, and corporate funds they handle may suddenly be reversed or changed in some way. The income of their marriage partners is also
vulnerable to sudden change. It is also possible that their partner's income may be derived by some unorthodox method, or from such areas as medicine, social organizations, fund raising,
or international finance. Many of these individuals devise or use ingenious or unorthodox methods (not necessarily illegal) regarding taxes and insurance or for recovering debts.

The ninth house describes higher education, advanced training, publishing, publicity, advertising, politics, foreign travel, foreign studies, religious and philosophical views and activities,
and cultural pursuits. It relates to court decisions, a second marriage, and in-laws. To a certain extent the ninth house also describes the job or health of your mother.

Aquarius ruling the ninth house suggests that in the matter of higher education or advanced training, these individuals may be better suited to being self-taught. It isn't necessarily that they
aren't willing or able to pursue higher education, but there is potential they may be too restless and independent to endure lectures and formal instructions. Left to their own methods and
motivations however, they may become expert on subjects that interest them and develop impressive mechanical or artistic skills with little or no formal instruction. There is also
implication with unpredictable Aquarius that they may experience sudden or unexpected disruptions in their education or training, and perhaps even be required to begin again at a later time.
Religious or philosophical views are apt to be unpredictable and unorthodox. Even if they do not adopt totally radical views, their ideas are vulnerable to sudden change and they may rebel
against traditional ideas and practices. They may also lean so far toward the traditional as to become ultraconservative and fanatical. This same point can be made about their ideas relating
to art, music, or literature.

Neptune in the ninth house indicates those who are highly intelligent but also vulnerable to mental confusion, fanaticism or misplaced idealism. They may be totally organized and
efficient in some things, while appallingly inattentive to facts and details in others. Depending on other factors in their personality and background, they may be a dangerous master of the
art of deception or a highly successful promoter. They are apt to have interest in religion and spiritualism. Neptune's negative influence includes the possibility of disillusionment,
deception, or illegal activities in a foreign country or involving foreigners. On the positive side, Neptune's influence can mean that their experiences with those of another race or culture
may be highly inspirational or spiritual. Neptune in the ninth house implies work or interest in publishing (especially of occult or religious writing) or counseling. These individuals are
also compassionate judges and sensitive teachers. A ninth house Neptune suggests a parent (mother) or a sibling's spouse may suffer from disabilities, drugs or alcohol, or they may be
employed in a job that involves maritime industry, religion, photography, medicine, psychology, footwear, or those who are institutionalized, disabled, or minorities. Relations with
in-laws, a second marriage, and court decisions can become confused or undermined by deception, misunderstandings, or other influences.

The tenth house describes your career and other long-range goals, public reputation, superiors and those in authority. It also relates to your father and his influence in your life.

Pisces ruling the tenth house indicates individuals who may face the necessity for guarding their reputations since there is danger of scandal or being connected with someone else's disgrace.
There is also a possibility they will have glamorous or mysterious public images. Their marriage or business partners may be found among those who live or were raised near water. The
influence of Pisces implies several situations related to a parent, in most cases, the father. They may, for example, be abandoned, either literally or figuratively, by the father. There may
also be a secret or sorrow or depression connected with the father, or he may be disabled, suffer from mental or emotional problems, or be addicted to alcohol or drugs. Negative potential
includes the possibility of failure to get recognition they deserve or to achieve their goals. The career or long range goals they seek may involve aiding those who are disabled,
institutionalized, underprivileged, or minorities. Religion, theater, dance, art, medicine, or maritime industries are other possible areas that hold the key to their destinies.

MARS in 10th HOUSE
Mars in the tenth house indicates those who like their activities to be public. They are very ambitious, and are excellent promoters. For the most part it may be themselves or their own
efforts they promote, but they can be just as enthusiastic about seeking public attention for someone else or a cause in which they have great interest. Some people may work as tirelessly
as they do, but few will match the aggressiveness and persuasive force of these individuals. Some people may be content to work quietly behind the scenes but these individuals want their
efforts to be noticed. Strong qualities of leadership gives them the ability to inspire others. They are apt to work better alone, and many prefer to operate their own business rather than
work for anyone else. The lifestyle of these individuals is not apt to be very tranquil or very ordinary. The influence of Mars in the tenth house suggests difficulty attracting a marriage
partner. The attention of these individuals is so often focused on their career or other goals they don't have time for any one else, or they may simply be so aggressive that a potential
marriage partner feels threatened. The negative potential of this Mars position includes loss of the father or male authority figure, a father who is domineering, and disagreements with
superiors and other authority figures.

Those with Mars square Jupiter can often be their own worst enemies through carelessness, laziness, and bad timing. They act imprudently when they should keep low profiles, and when
their knowledge or actions count, they may fail to act out of laziness or disinterest. There are tendencies for procrastination and misrepresentation. However there is also energy to overcome
the difficulties indicated and succeed because of them rather than in spite of them.

Venus in the tenth house indicates those who tend to get noticed because of their talent, looks, charming personality, or all three of these assets. Unless factors in their background have
resulted in the development of shyness or other inhibitions, they derive a great deal of pleasure from performing in public. They are excellent ad libers, impromptu speechifiers and
toastmasters. Negative potential includes those who become an over dramatic, non-appeasable seeker of the spotlight who selfishly uses relationships to further their own career or goals. It
can also mean difficult relationships with family and authority figures. The positive influence of Venus suggests great popularity and friends in prominent positions. The father may be
especially handsome or possess artistic talent.

VENUS conjunct MARS
Venus conjunct Mars indicates those with an aura of warmth and vitality that lies close to the surface. It is very attractive to others though they may not exactly realize what it is that
makes these individuals so appealing. They are oriented toward careers or aggressively pursuing other important goals. As a rule they can usually be counted on to have an enthusiastic
response to sexual encounters. This aspect also implies those with either talent for art or the appreciation of it.

Venus square Jupiter indicates those likely to spend half their time overindulging and the other half paying for it. Their tendency to go overboard can also be the reverse and they are
miserly. In many cases it amounts to poor sense of timing; that is, they are overly extravagant in some matters or with people who don't deserve their generosity, and then too selfish or
miserly when they should have been generous. The aspect indicates that personal growth is not only possible but probable, which means most of these individuals eventually learn to
balance generosity with prudence, lessons that lead to their ultimate success.

SUN in 10th HOUSE
Sun in the tenth house indicates those who possess a strong ego that must find public expression. Very few of these individuals are likely to be satisfied with staying home. Those who
choose such a life-style or are forced into it, are apt to be miserable. Even if their main focus is home and family, sooner or later, they feel the need to accomplish their personal goals
through a career or other activities. The father is emphasized, and these individuals feel his influence more than most. Their accomplishments may be the direct result of his help, or have
been motivated by the lack of it. They may bear a strong physical resemblance to the father. These individuals seek to attain public positions. They are apt to work for themselves or
occupy an elevated position in the companies that employ them.

Mercury in the tenth house indicates individuals who want their thoughts and ideas conveyed to an audience. Even if they do not seek public attention for themselves, they want a public
forum for their ideas, or in which to put these ideas into practice. They may write speeches for others, or become city planners and engineers. Others enjoy mental pursuits in public places
such as chess matches in the park or writing letters to the editors of newspapers. There is also the potential for more than one career, or a dual-natured quality connected with their work.
The negative potential of this Mercury house position includes difficulty in communicating with the father or other authority figures, and problems establishing their own authority.
Mercury's influence in the tenth house is an indication of writers, teachers, public speakers, or politicians. Their career or profession may demand a great deal of traveling, or involve
transportation or networking.

Unless other factors in their personalities inhibit them, those with Mercury trine Jupiter are great talkers. Whether they have anything worthy to say is beside the point; they say it
anyway. They may rely too heavily at times on the intellectual efforts of others and, even worse, may appropriate the material as their own. They think they can talk their way out of (or
into) any situation, and much of the time they have the intelligence and communicative skills to do it.

Mercury conjunct Pluto indicates those who tend to enjoy endlessly analyzing ideas, relationships, and situations; wanting to get to the basic structure of things. Sometimes this is done to
afford a better sense of themselves in relationship to others, and sometimes it is done as a means of gaining power over others. Once their attention is engaged, it is totally focused, which
is why many of these individuals are excellent researchers and investigators.

The eleventh house rules friendships, organizations to which you belong, and income derived from self-employment or career (as opposed to wages earned from a job). It relates to the role
you play in the lives of others as child, parent, lover, spouse, friend, social or business associate. The eleventh house also describes your hopes and aspirations and capacity for happiness.

Aries ruling the eleventh house indicates the likelihood of individuals who put their energy and vitality into establishing a wide range of social contacts and participating in the activities of
clubs and organizations. The enthusiasm and energy of Aries influences and enhances their social lives and their friendships. Their friends are likely to fit an Aries description which means
they will include soldiers, hunters, pioneers, sports enthusiasts, inventors, and risk-takers of every description, as well as those with energetic go-getting attitudes. The negative potential
connected with Aries on the eleventh house can mean individuals who develop antisocial attitudes, rudeness or irascibility. They may provoke or participate in arguments and open
confrontations. It can also mean individuals who are never happy with what they have. They may work very hard to achieve something, only to decide they want something more or
something else entirely. They may have many acquaintances but few friends, there being more energy and quickly-burned passion in their contacts than long term emotional commitment.

Pluto in the eleventh house indicates those whose central theme in life is analyzing what makes them happy. To accommodate what may be an intense desire to find true happiness, they
make a completely new beginning with new friends and if possible, in a new environment. The fresh start they attempt may be successful, but if it merely represents a desire to run away
from unresolved problems or unsatisfactory relationships, they are certain to fail. By choice or circumstance there may be secrecy and hidden control or manipulation related to the role they
play in the lives of others, as child, parent, sibling, lover, spouse, or friend. Understanding the necessity of directing energy away from the self and toward a relationship or group effort,
being able to work as part of a group instead of dominating it, and focusing on common goals rather than emphasizing differences are what give ultimate influence and power to those with
an eleventh house Pluto.

Uranus in the eleventh house indicates those who can pick up with friends they have not seen or talked to in years as though no time had passed at all. This ability is an asset since
instability and separation are associated with their friendships. These individuals usually have a tendency to consciously or subconsciously organize their friends into a loose fraternity.
Unless undesirable factors in their personality or background interfere, their liberal and egalitarian approach attracts friends and acquaintances from all walks of life, social levels, and
cultural backgrounds. They are also apt to establish friendships with people involved in occult or other unorthodox subjects, as well as with those in more traditional areas involved with
computers, music, electronics, medicine, finance, social work, or communications. These individuals value their place as a child, parent, friend, lover, spouse, and whatever role they play
in the lives of others. However, they also value their own independence and do not want to confine all their attention to one individual.

Uranus conjunct Pluto occurs about every 171 years, the last time being the mid-1960's. The revolutionary character of its influence in the United States was seen in the enormous personal
and public crisis over issues like the Vietnam War and the fast emerging drug culture. The influence may or may not affect individuals born in this generation personally but it will have
much to do with how their generation runs the world in the next century.

Saturn in the eleventh house indicates heavy responsibilities related to the role that they play in the lives of others, especially friends, children (not necessarily their biological offspring),
and others who make up their personal network. Saturn's influence does not imply lack of such people in their life, and indeed, they may enjoy solid, long-lasting relationships with them.
However, these individuals may tend to harbor the notion that they are friendless and unappreciated. They may have an aversion or little motivation to join societies. Those who become a
member of a club are often handed extra responsibilities. Saturn suggests that income or promotion from their career may be very limited or delayed. The father is apt to have few assets,
and, if he has wealth, it may be of little use to them. Real happiness and enjoyment will be hard won, and perhaps not achieved until later in life.

Saturn sextile Neptune is a generational aspect that implies opportunities in society for introducing a new stage of religious thinking, a willingness to investigate the occult and other
supernatural phenomena from a scientific point of view, or finding new uses for drugs and medicines already on the market.

The twelfth house describes the private and hidden side of life; your subconscious mind, dreams, the past, and those who wish you harm or work against your interests. The twelfth house
relates to sorrow, disappointment, loss, solitude or confinement, hidden fears and worry. It also has connection with the job or health of your marriage or business partner.

Gemini ruling the twelfth house indicates individuals who may keep many of their ideas and thoughts to themselves. As a rule they are able to think and communicate more effectively in
quiet environments. They are attracted to investigations that go beyond the physical planes, such as the subconscious, dreams, and extra sensory perception. Their thoughts and ideas are not
always based on logical reasoning but are often a result of instinct or intuition. Sometimes this type of thinking works, and sometimes they need to get a clearer sense of reality. They can
become prisoners of their own minds. The influence of Gemini suggests the possibility of being involved in communication or computers connected with hospitals, prisons, charitable
institutions, or mental institutions. Their marriage partners may be clerics, artists, or they may work in law, contract negotiations, teaching, writing, or publishing.
