Chart Patterns

Seesaw

You have the planetary pattern called the ‘seesaw’ type. With your planets divided into two distinct groups, you are very balanced in your outlook, always being aware of both sides of an issue, always able to compromise between opposing points of view. In this way you are quite similar to a Libra personality.

T-Square, focal planet Moon

You have a T-Square in your chart. With a this planetary aspect pattern, in which three planets or conjunctions are in square with one another, you have a high degree of motivation and drive. Your energies are most easily and habitually expressed by the energy of the focal point, the middle of the T-Square. You may also compensate for overdoing in the area of life represented by the focal point, by leaning toward the empty pattern element opposite the focal point, seeking to balance your activity. The lesson of this planetary aspect pattern is in learning to use your considerable energy wisely in the pursuit of your true goals. There is great tension represented by the focal planet or planets in your chart, where conflicting parts of your personality attain their focus and peak of energy, and you may observe compulsive behavior in the area of life represented here.

The Moon in Gemini gives an active mentality, with perhaps a tendency to be nervous and highstrung. There is likely to be a glibness of tongue and a love of chatter with this position. You must beware of superficiality. Since the Moon represents childhood experiences, possibly there were two sides to your early life. You are shrewd and versatile, but you can be overly critical at times. You can also be hard on yourself. You like to express your opinion, and tend to react to situations with thinking, rather than with direct action.

The Moon in the Third House represents an emotional sensitivity in response to thinking and the intellect. Your mind is ever alert for new information. Your moods are linked with your mental process. You may feel anxiety caused by your habit of constantly questioning the ideas and concepts of the world around you. Each answer you find can be the source of another question for your mind to ponder. Your thinking processes may lack continuity. You are likely to be easily distracted from being able to focus or concentrate. Constant mental activity can lead to a restless nervous system. You dislike routine. Short journeys and personal studies are beneficial to you. You need a variety of stimulation in your mental environment in order to feel comfortable and satisfied.

Important Features

Neptune in Scorpio (8° Sco 36′) Neptune in the Eighth House

The following paragraph emphasized:

Neptune in Scorpio (or the eighth house) gives an individual with great personal magnetism. You have a subtle intuition and an unusually clear insight into the motivations of others. You also may unconsciously try to control other people, or act in somewhat unreliable ways. You have an ideal of self-sacrifice in partnership with others, and tend to give more than you receive, which can lead in the end to resentment on your part, or just disappearing. Otherworldly affairs may interest you more than everyday ones, and you may be drawn to psychic matters or occult studies. Your dreams are very important to you, and through them you may learn significant information. You are likely to possess an enjoyment of sensual pleasures or luxuries. You may also have some confusion regarding sexuality and with what you truly desire from relationships. You benefit from bringing greater clarity to your personal values, your relation to the material world and to other people.

Jupiter in Aquarius (0° Aqu 51′ R) Jupiter in the Eleventh House

The following paragraph emphasized:

Jupiter in Aquarius (or the eleventh house) gives you a socially conscious and scientifically-minded personality. You are an individual who works well with groups, very high-minded with strong humanitarian ideals. You are inventive and original, and are able to motivate others by your example. You make a good diplomat or politician. You don’t value security on a personal level, but focus your ideals on the betterment of society, with a value-system that is uniquely yours. You have firmly in mind your concept of the finest possibilities for the social matrix that surrounds you. You may be seen as a bit eccentric as you are someone who marches to the beat of your own drum. You are humane and just, and have very high principles, but you may envision possibilities too vast to be achieved, and benefit from cultivating a more practical approach in some circumstances.

Saturn in Capricorn (25° Cap 19′ R) Saturn in the Eleventh House

Saturn in the Eleventh House (or sign) gives a socially adept and responsible individual, with a deepening and concentration, or a blockage, with regard to participation in groups and around causes. You are careful, conscientious and humane. You are gentle and strong, apt to be fairminded and can appear at times impersonal, or cold and unloving. Group participation is quite important to you, and you place so much emphasis on it that you may have difficulties in feeling as though you belong to a particular group, or you may draw back from friendships from a fear of not being accepted. You have good powers of concentration, and place much importance on the betterment of society through constructive communal activity. You may be devoted to a spiritual discipline. Your lesson is to transform your narrow view of social acceptance on a personal level into a broader vision, in which you can meaningfully participate, of a more sharing society, one beyond the present level of a divided humanity.

The following applies to your generation as a whole as well as to you personally:

Saturn in Capricorn (or the tenth house) gives an ambitious and clear-minded individual, with a strong sense of responsibility. You are persistent, careful and calculating, and have a deep urge for mastery and achievement. You are likely to place extreme importance on traditional values in reaching for the prize you seek, accomplishment in the eyes of the world. Like the mountain goat ascending you are cautious and rarely take chances, and may appear dutifully grim in your outlook. You may experience difficulties, limitations or delays in the achievement of your goals, but you usually achieve success in the end. You may have encountered problems in your early life with finding your own identity independent of parental figures, and you may now operate out of a subconscious fear that if you don’t conquer the world first, then it will conquer you instead. When you are at your best, you can transform your struggle from a personal drive for power in the world into a model for others wherein the social matrix surrounding you is enlightened by your actions.

Sun in Leo (12° Leo 37′ 39″) Sun in the Fifth House

The Sun represents your will and purpose, your sense of vitality, and your evolving higher Self. In Leo it is Fixed-Fire, and rules the heart and spine. Your ruling planet is the Sun itself, and you are likely to express yourself in dramatic, creative and assertive ways. You are also likely to enjoy the warmth of the physical Sun. You have great energy, courage and honesty. You are likely to be self-confident and maybe even a bit self-indulgent. You expect to be the center of attention, and often are. You can be quite determined and usually get your way when you really want to. You also possess great integrity, and are a natural leader. Leo people are very proud. Your challenge is to temper any tendency for arrogant or egotistical behavior and to instead develop humility and compassion; to learn detachment in the gift of your affections, so that you radiate your abundant energy freely and enhance the life experience of others around you.

The Sun in the Fifth House represents a concentration of the vital force toward expression of self in a magnetic way. You are radiant and dynamic. You are likely to have a flamboyant or charismatic personality. You are very conscious of yourself and your personal identity and you love to display who you are to other people. You are very creative. You attract others by entertaining them with the various expressions of your selfhood. You are in fact a natural actor or entertainer. You view life as theater: you are the central actor on your own stage. You need to feel free to explore and engage in activities that give you the opportunity to discover all the variations of creative emotional expression welling from within. Your ability to show yourself stimulates those around you to experiment with experiencing life more dramatically and fully. You do best when you give yourself permission to be in an environment in which you can manifest as wide and healthy range of dynamic interactions with others as is humanly possible.

Angular Planets

Venus in Cancer (1° Can 53′) Venus in the Fourth House

Venus in Cancer gives a sensitive and caring nature, very devoted and loyal, with emphasis on security. Your affections operate at an unconscious and instinctual level, and apply in a general way to everyone you connect with. You are fond of children and the life of the home. You are likely to maintain close ties with your parents and other family members, and may be mothering rather than mating in the expression of your relationship energy. You are gentle, receptive and charming, and inclined to the sentimental or nostalgic. The Sound of Music may be your favorite movie. You feel best when you are involved the closeness and intimacy of a family relationship.

Venus in the Fourth House represents the deeply felt connection within you between values and aesthetics and the roots of your being, psychological or environmental, as in home and family. You are fond of children and the life of the home. You are likely to be gentle, receptive and charming, perhaps inclined to be sentimental or nostalgic. You undoubtedly have an aesthetically pleasing home, and are very devoted and loyal in sharing your sensitive and caring nature with others. You may be able to earn money based on your living space, either working there or becoming an advisor concerning decoration and interior design. Your father or same sex parent likely provided a stable and loving presence as the basis for your feelings of security. You value kindness and trust between people above all things, and naturally create a calm and beneficial home environment.

Mars in Virgo (22° Vir 38′) Mars in the Sixth House

The following paragraph emphasized:

Mars in Virgo (or the sixth house) gives a kind nature, and an energetic worker, with a tendency to be fussy over details. You possess a tremendous desire to be helpful to others, and have a practical and hard-working orientation that assists you in making good on your intentions. You may however need to evolve through getting into conflicts over trifles. At your best, you have a real focus on the simple issues of life, and of the health of the body temple, and just showing up for what comes, day-to-day, that is essentially good natured and constructive rather than egooriented. You tend to be somewhat narrow in the application of your effort, and may need to learn to learn to start opening up to the bigger picture. It benefits you to take a more relaxed attitude and a wider and more tolerant worldview, rather than getting hung up on the minutiae of a project.

Sun, Moon, Rising Sign Features

Pisces Rising

The Rising Sign is the mask shown to others, also the physical appearance.

People with Pisces rising are idealistic and sensitive. Your ruling planet is Neptune, also Jupiter. With this ascendant you are friendly and likable, yet also can be very moody and introspective, and not entirely at home in the world. Your appearance is delicate, with an ethereal quality suggesting contact with other dimensions of reality. Pisces is a watery sign, concerned with subtle emotions and secret mystical depths. You are dreamy and full of imagination, and are easily influenced by everything around you. You also have an artistic temperament with which to express these feelings. You can be strong when necessary, but you may have a hard time making a decision. At your best you are truly compassionate, and operate at the level of service, love and understanding of mankind.

Saturn in strong sextile (within 0.4 degrees) with Ascendant

The planetary energies flow together, open into new possibilities, new connections.

This aspect gives a deepening and concentration of the self-expression. You are serious about your responsibilities, and possess good executive abilities. You are also ambitious and are likely to make your mark on the world. There may also be a barrier between you and your self-realization, so that your true feelings are denied outlet, or you may have a sense of rejection or lack of love in your life, leading to a subconscious desire for recognition. Your lesson in all this may be to deepen and particularize the knowledge of who you really are, make contact with your own inner significance, and learn to love yourself.

Mars in opposition (within 3.1 degrees) with Ascendant

The planetary energies are polarized; outer events stimulate their interaction; integration is the challenge.

This aspect gives a rash personality with a quick temper. You lack patience and tend to be argumentative. You are restless and have a forceful drive, which can lead you to accomplish great things, if properly harnessed. You are likely to possess a wiry and spare physique. You are also excitable, tend to run risks, and can be opinionated. You are daring and have great physical vitality and stamina. You can definitely “hold your own” in a dispute. You are sometimes hard to talk with, seeming to take your own position at the expense of others, and you should beware of abrasive behavior towards them, such as bragging or pushing yourself too much. You usually mean well, and need to temper your physical drive with calmness and judgment.

Uranus in inconjunct (within 0.5 degrees) with Ascendant

The planetary energies do not flow smoothly, one or the other predominates; discrimination must be employed.

This aspect gives an eccentric and strong-willed individual. You love freedom from conventionality. You are inclined to be reckless, and periodically start over in your life, completely eliminating previous foundations. You are somewhat inclined to be nervousness and impatient, and tend to shy away from commitment and responsibility. You are an original and independent thinker with an active, scientific mind, futuristic in outlook, and you are capable of bringing new ideas into being. You can benefit from trying to control your energetic and visionary impulses in order to make these more concretely available in your own life, and in the life of society around you.

Venus in weak square (within 6.2 degrees) with Ascendant

The planetary energies conflict; internal and creative tensions bring rich rewards through effort over time.

This aspect gives a warm-hearted, affectionate and perhaps manipulative personality. You are cheerful, charming and likable. You are sensitive, with an inclination for artistic pursuits and refined surroundings, and you may possess considerable talent for the arts, especially music and dance. Relationships are important to you. You are inclined to reach out to other people, and may work even harder to charm them when they do not respond as you wish. You are firmly in contact with what you want and you are likely to be quite successful at getting it. With your poise and charm, this is usually not difficult for you.Venus-Asc.2 This aspect gives a warm-hearted, affectionate and perhaps manipulative personality. You are cheerful, charming and likable. You may also be very beautiful, particularly at the soul-level. You are sensitive, with an inclination for artistic pursuits and refined surroundings. You may possess considerable talent for the arts, especially music and dance. Relationships are important to you. You are also firmly in contact with what you want and you are likely to be quite successful at getting it. With your poise and charm, this is usually not difficult. In fact, things may be a little too easy for you, and you benefit from the depth of character that varying experience can bring.

Sun in square (within 4.0 degrees) with Neptune

The planetary energies conflict; internal and creative tensions bring rich rewards through effort over time.

This aspect gives a highly sensitive, visionary and creative individual. You are probably somewhat unworldly, possessing an ethereal quality, a marked remoteness from ordinary reality. You are likely to be artistic or musical. You are the softhearted type, and you may be too willing to sacrifice yourself for the good of others. You may also be dissatisfied with your work activities, or life in general, leading to the habit of evading decisions, or to other forms of escapism. In feeling unfree to assert yourself, you may engage in self-deceptive illusions, or even the use of drugs. You also may have issues with deceptions practiced on you by other people. In order to develop a clearer sense of self, accurate feedback from other people is crucial, so that to avoid these traps, you should strive for utmost honesty in your dealings with others. The otherworldly energy of Neptune must be used wisely. When the proper outlet is found, tremendous creativity is possible, perhaps manifested through artistic channels: music, drama, poetry. Your lesson in all this is to achieve a balance between the spiritual dimension of reality and ordinary life.

Sun in sesquiquadrate (within 0.6 degrees) with Midheaven

The planetary energies conflict in determined subtle tension; control is required.

This aspect gives a strong personality, very involved in work and career. You can be autocratic and may appear selfish, or bent on getting your own way. You have tremendous drive, and will likely go far, but you might need to beware of too much ego-involvement in being on top.

Moon in strong sextile (within 1.9 degrees) with Mercury

The planetary energies flow together, open into new possibilities, new connections.

This aspect gives a kindly, sound and logical mentality. You are a good communicator, and are able to express your emotions easily. You are an inquisitive student of life, and are also excellent at working with the public. You usually prefer plain and direct speech, and you are judicious and honest in your approach to life.

Moon in strong square (within 2.6 degrees) with Pluto

The planetary energies conflict; internal and creative tensions bring rich rewards through effort over time.

This aspect gives a moody and introspective personality with a strong desire for emotional security. You are likely to be very sensitive and emotionally intense, with a tendency to become completely absorbed in interpersonal relationships. You are also an extremely forceful individual, with the urge to transform yourself and your surroundings. When you have a goal in mind, nothing will stand in your way. Your need for security may manifest as an almost compulsive desire for a safe and secure home life, or a home environment which can be completely controlled, possibly even through dictatorial behavior. You have an unusually clear insight into the emotional depths of other people, which may border on an actual psychic attunement with their states of being. You also have the urge to break through the limitations of the parental influence you experienced as a child. You may have experienced controlling behavior on the part of one or both parents, especially your mother, and you may find yourself still involved in the battle for your own autonomy many years later. These struggles can be worked through in your life, beginning with a deeper understanding of what it is you truly need on an emotional level. Your challenge is to transform your sense of insecurity, by coming to terms with your survival issues based on a better insight into your own hidden motivations.

Moon in strong square (within 0.9 degrees) with Chiron

The planetary energies conflict; internal and creative tensions bring rich rewards through effort over time.

With this aspect there are difficulties indicated in relating to the feminine – either significant female presences in your life or else and including your own feminine side. This would be true, and different in its sense, in either a man’s or a woman’s chart. Of course the important early model for the feminine is mother, and it is likely that there were painful experiences of some kind in your early relationship with your own mother or significant female parental figure. Perhaps you had a close relationship, but yet your needs were somehow not met, resulting in unconscious resentments which only surfaced later in your adult life. You may in this case exhibit a strong feminine side through and over-attachment to your mother’s feelings. It is important to note that there also may have been actual abuse, physical or otherwise. These experiences are so painful that they are often suppressed from your consciousness, and buried deep in your psyche. In your adult life, it is important to move past the resentment caused by early wounding into a more conscious and compassionate reconciliation with the walled off parts of your own nature. Therefore, deep psychological work of some variety is strongly indicated. Once you have begun to make conscious the pain and alienation surrounding events from the long-buried past, you can begin to truly help others as well as yourself. A creative side of your nature may emerge for the first time. The integration of the feminine side of your nature is a tremendous challenge for you, but the gold at the end of the process is well worth digging for.

Moon in trine (within 3.6 degrees) with Jupiter

The planetary energies flow smoothly; the connection is easy and beneficial.

This aspect gives an idealistic and humanitarian personality, friendly and sociable, with an inherent spirituality. You are loving and caring and are also strong in character, with a keen sense of right and wrong. You are fortunate in finances, and attract material rewards without seeming to try for them. You are honorable and dependable in your dealings with your fellow man, and work well with the public. There may be an inclination toward the mystical side of life.

Moon in inconjunct (within 4.2 degrees) with Neptune

The planetary energies do not flow smoothly, one or the other predominates; discrimination must be employed.

This aspect gives an emotionally sensitive, idealistic and loving personality. You possess an ethereal quality, and you may have powerful psychic abilities. You are the softhearted type, and you may be too willing to sacrifice yourself for the good of others. You could have issues with self-deception, or experience discontent with the practical realities of life. Your home is important to you, and you may change residences frequently in search of your ideal environment, or fantasize about finding the perfect mate. You benefit from striving for greater clarity in applying your high ideals to the real world.

Neptune in strong sextile (within 1.6 degrees) with Pluto

The planetary energies flow together, open into new possibilities, new connections.

This combination gives an individual with a personal involvement in the energies of the collective. This is a generational aspect, which many of your contemporaries will share with you. You have a subtle intuition and unusually clear insight into others. The influence of the unconscious is especially strong in you. You need to connect with your higher self in order to be happy. You function at your best in service to the world, helping to move it closer to a vision of spiritual union between all mankind.

Mars in semi-square (within 1.0 degrees) with Neptune

The planetary energies conflict in determined subtle tension; calmness is required.

This aspect gives an attractive personality with a psychic sensitivity and an inclination to mysticism and the arts. You possess a good understanding of and balance between the practical and the ideal. You can also be vague regarding motives or discontented with life in the material plane. You could have issues with self-deception, or with deception practiced upon you by other people. You can benefit from clarifying your aims, and learning to focus your power and become a channel for its higher use in your life and that of society around you.

Uranus in quintile (within 1.3 degrees) with Neptune

The planetary energies are positively linked, subtle, and spiritual in dimension.

This aspect gives a future oriented and idealistic individual, aware of collective energies. This is a generational aspect, which many of your contemporaries will share with you. You may feel a pull to the service of humanity at large. Social ideals will strongly affect the expression of your individuality.

Neptune in trine (within 3.3 degrees) with Chiron

The planetary energies flow smoothly; the connection is easy and beneficial.

With this combination of planetary energies in your chart, you may have gone to the depths and back again in your life. You have a particularly strong access to the world of dreams and inner fantasy, which may serve as an escape valve for you. You may also be extremely sensitive to the psyches of others, may vicariously experience their pain. Something keeps you out of touch with consensus reality, but you also are not comfortable with this role. It is as if you stand on the other side of a glass door from the rest of society, through which you alternately gaze longingly and then lose interest and wander away into your own fantasy. You are capable of tremendous spiritual powers once you have begun to work through these difficulties and establish a better sense of where you stand vis a vis the remainder of society. You may exhibit great poetic or musical talent or the empathy of a born healer. Having come through a painful examination of your own psyche you are able to see more clearly and compassionately into the minds of others also.

Other Natal Planets

Mercury in Leo (2° Leo 30′) Mercury in the Fifth House

Mercury in Leo gives a dignified and refined mentality. You are proud of your ideas, and very good at expressing them to others. You are likely to be an entertaining conversationalist, with a good sense of humor. You may also be opinionated at times. You have a tendency to want to convince others of your own point of view without taking time to see theirs. In this way you can have something of a lazy mind. You benefit from cultivating greater powers of attention and perception, and opening your consciousness to the world around you.

Mercury in the Fifth House represents a strong mental connection between your inner awareness and your creative self-expression. You are proud of your ideas, and very good at expressing them to others. Your thinking is creative. You are an entertaining conversationalist, with a good sense of humor. You may also excel in other forms of dramatic articulation such as on the stage. Poetic expression enhances your understanding of a particular point or subject. You may enjoy teaching youngsters. You are likely to love the ideas and verbalizations of children, and value your communication with them. You may have a tendency to try to convince others of your own point of view, and at the same time you may not be very willing to see the point of view of others. You benefit from cultivating greater powers of attention and perception, and opening your consciousness to the variety of conceptions in the world around you.

Uranus in Leo (25° Leo 17′) Uranus in the Sixth House

Uranus in the Sixth House (or sign) gives an individual with a clever and enthusiastic mind, original in thought and action and not comfortable with routine. You are likely to have a scientific and analytical mentality. You can also be impatient with others, or lacking in sympathy for their concerns. You like to change jobs, and you are a hard worker, if allowed the freedom to work as you feel motivated. You may have to struggle with organizational elements at the expense of performance. You may also have health problems, since the Uranian energy is fitful in its application. You may experience difficulty with keeping things in order, but this can be overcome through persistence. You are likely to be interested in new-age healing techniques. You are on an important path of self-realization in this life, corresponding to your own unique vision, and will not be satisfied with anyone else’s idea of what it is that you need to accomplish for yourself. You benefit from drawing out your original creative impulse into more long-lasting and concrete projects through concentration and technique.

The following applies to your generation as a whole as well as to you personally:

Uranus in Leo (or the fifth house) gives a rebellious individual with a strong will. With this placement you tend to be determined to get your own way. You are reckless, original, and independent, and like to assert yourself. You can be very creative, especially in the arts. Whatever form your self-expression takes, it is likely to evoke you and no one else. Your unique viewpoint contributes to the potential for new genres and methods of accomplishment to come into being. Your approach to romance may also be different from the run of the mill. You may find yourself in unconventional in love affairs, perhaps with sudden beginnings or endings. Children are a source of great interest but you may have difficulties in giving them warmth and affection. You benefit from learning the joy that comes from a more heartcentered approach. You also benefit from more follow-through, focus and self-discipline, in order to successfully complete what is started.

Pluto in Virgo (6° Vir 59′) Pluto in the Sixth House

The following paragraph emphasized:

Pluto in Virgo (or the sixth house) gives you an intense desire to be of service in the world. This desire can take the form of a compulsion to help others in a way that may not truly be appreciated by the intended beneficiaries. You are slightly obsessed with finding the purity inherent in human activity, and may well be a champion of the environmental movement, or exert yourself strenuously in your job or home setting. You may also become intensely concerned and perhaps even chronically worried over health issues, or you may be apt to stress over organizational detail where the intention is to purify the function of the particular activity, but where attending to the details can become an end in itself. You may go through many profound changes of attitude in these areas, in order to learn how to be of actual service to yourself and others. Creative outlets for your passion might be found in the helping professions, or in working on your own issues in such a way as to regenerate your values and life direction. When you have transformed in these areas you can become a beacon for others to follow. By staying true to your own inner guidance system, you make it possible for others to also, and further the cause of a more self-aware and wisely functioning planetary society.

Chiron in Pisces (5° Pis 19′ R) Chiron in the Twelfth House

The following paragraph emphasized:

Chiron in Pisces (or the Twelfth House) represents issues with one’s vital force to be at home in the world of physical manifestation. You may feel frustrated and alienated from rest of mankind, or more at home in a world of fantasy than in dealing with what is laughably called “the real world”. You have a talent for that which is beyond this world, and can make your mark on it in your own particular fashion, which may perhaps be achieved in the worlds of music, or poetry, or as a seeker for higher truth. But these are ways of being in the world without actually participating in it. Possibly there were painful episodes from early childhood that drove you into a world of your own, but you have come to be quite at home in this world, and the issue for you is coming out with style and dignity, rather than by totally abandoning your inner cosmos. Again and again, you attempt to be a part of it all, just like everyone else, and again and again it just doesn’t quite work. There may be many painful episodes before you realize that what is “for everyone” out there is just not for you at all. You may do work with other people, in helping them to be peaceful and comfortable in connecting their own lives to a higher truth, without ever really getting it yourself. Of course one is tempted to blame oneself for this sort of failure to connect. There are deep emotions associated with withdrawal from the world that must be examined if you are to begin to operate from a feeling of wholeness and truly make your own way. There is a part of yourself that has been carefully hidden away, defended from the pressures of consensus reality, and it may take a lot of work to get in touch with these dark places. It may be that you come to a sense of peace with your darker, more hidden self only after a long period of soul-searching. When you begin to make your way on this process of integration, then you find that there really is a way to be a part of the world at large, to participate and share in its wonders and its disasters too, without giving anything up. It is not easy to make this transformation, but it is vital to your emotional health and well-being, and makes it possible for you to reach out to others as well, who may be fumbling towards a similar apotheosis.

N Node in Leo (27° Leo 18′ R) N Node in the Sixth House

Lunar North Node in the Sixth House (or sign). South Node in the twelfth house or sign. This placement gives a personality with a great desire to be of service to other people. In the past, or in past lives, you were dreamy and unfocused, and paid little attention to detail. You were in the process of connecting to your higher self, journeying back into the cosmic realms within your own mind. Now your focus must shift to the details of daily life, in a constant effort to improve self, to serve self and others, and to remain alert to the myriad mundane details of life that do not leave much time for day dreaming. This is a difficult transition to make, but necessary if you are to fulfill your destiny, this time around. As your life unfolds, you may find that issues of health may come up for you, in order for you to work through them. You may possibly be called to care for another whose illness will be a test of your patience and your commitment to service. Since you feel a close kinship to the spiritual world, dealing with every-day details sometimes may seem boring and unsatisfying. As you work through these challenges, though, you come closer and closer to an understanding of how dealing with everyday issues really does connect you with the world of Spirit, still operating at the core of your being.

Lunar North Node in Leo (or the fifth house). South Node in the eleventh house or sign. This placement gives a personality with a focus on being recognized and admired for the personal creativity that you manifest. You are fortunate in this lifetime, for few people have the capacity, as you do, of actually making your dreams come true. You are engaged in a life-long process of concretizing your thought images, turning the products of your extraordinarily clever intellect into actual manifestation in the world. In the past, or in past lifetimes, you specialized in ideals and imaginings, without giving much thought to working these out in the real world. But as you get on with your life’s journey you find that actually manifesting these thought forms becomes more and more your focus. When you are on your true path, you find that you must act and create, for in acting you give form to the otherwise formless and ideal, and in so doing fulfill your destiny.

Other Aspects

Mercury in strong opposition (within 1.7 degrees) with Jupiter

The planetary energies are polarized; outer events stimulate their interaction; integration is the challenge.

This aspect gives a talkative and clever personality. You are also somewhat scattered. You are optimistic and may tend to exaggerate at times. You may be superficial, or changeable, or you may be too quick to judge others. Opportunities may be lost through lack of an ability to focus. You may be rash of speech. You also should beware of a tendency to be self-centered or conceited. You are fond of travel, intellectually enthusiastic and make a good teacher.

Uranus in strong trine (within 1.7 degrees) with Midheaven

The planetary energies flow smoothly; the connection is easy and beneficial.

You are in a subtle way a non-conformist and uniquely gifted individual. This combination gives a brilliant and ambitious person who may be rebellious of authority but who manages to work well within its structure also. You may change jobs frequently, as a result of unconventional attitudes or sudden bursts of new insights. You have a strong imagination and perhaps it is difficult to argue you out of your opinion, which can be unique at times. Your challenge is to move toward establishing your own personal authority, in your own way, and to help make that vision available to society at large.

Pluto in strong opposition (within 1.7 degrees) with Chiron

The planetary energies are polarized; outer events stimulate their interaction; integration is the challenge.

With this aspect you are likely to possess a very compulsive nature. You have a tendency to plunge into the depths of despair as well as the heights of manic madness as a form of compensatory reaction to the over-indulgence of wallowing in the depths. An overly active interest in sexuality, the potential for the abuse of power, ultimately powerful healing abilities, all are indicated. There are great depths of passion within you, likely the result of painful experiences from early childhood.
