Chapter 1: General Personality Characteristics
Sun in Gemini:
You are, in many ways, an eternal child. Your mind is bright, alert, curious, flexible, playful, and always eager for
new experiences - and your attention span is often quite brief. You grasp ideas quickly and once your initial curiosity
has been satisfied, you want to go on to something else. You crave frequent change, variety, meeting new situations
It may be hard for you to decide just where your talents and true vocation lies, for you have a multitude of interests
and are loathe to limit yourself by concentrating on just one. You are easily distracted by all of the other fascinating
possibilities. Your curiosity and restlessness propel you into many different experiences in life, and you are willing to
taste or try anything once. Doing the same thing over and over again, even it is something you do well, is real
drudgery for you.
You live in your head a great deal - reading, observing, thinking, spinning ideas around - and you need mental
stimulation every bit as much as you need food and drink. In fact, if you had to choose between a good book or
movie and a good lunch, you would very likely choose the former. You have a creative mind and often live by your
You are also a very social creature, with a strong need to communicate and to interact with people. You enjoy
using and playing with words and have a real flair for getting your ideas across in a clever, interesting, articulate
manner. Writing or speaking are areas you have talent for.
You also have a rather light and mischievous sense of humor, and often do not take anything too seriously. Though
you crave emotional involvement, it is hard for you to achieve it, for you are frequently unwilling to commit yourself to
anything, to take responsibility, or to limit your personal freedom and mobility.
Your happiness lies in using your creativity and your language skills to communicate something meaningful, to
teach, inspire, or bring people together. You have an unbiased mind and can usually offer a fresh, clear, uncluttered
perspective. Your faults are your lack of constancy and persistence, and your tendency to overlook or ignore deep
emotional issues and other people's feelings.
Sun Conjunct Jupiter:
You are blessed with abundant optimism, self-confidence, and cheerful generosity. Your good will and friendliness
win you many allies. You also have grand visions and aspirations, and the desire to succeed in life in a big way. You
expect the best, and usually get it.
Sun Opposition Neptune:
You are extremely sensitive and imaginative, and you can get lost in your dreams, fantasies, and visions. You are
attracted to artistic and creative pursuits, the world of color, beauty, and emotion. You are also drawn to mysticism
and have deep spiritual aspirations and yearnings. Gentle and peace-loving, you may lack the will and competitive
spirit needed to make your way in the world. You are often impractical and may seek to avoid or escape the hard
realities of life.
Sun Square Moon:
You often feel that you are at cross purposes with yourself, for your conscious intentions and desires conflict with
your subconscious emotional needs and drives. You are pulled in two different directions. You have difficulty
satisfying both your need to be an individual and your need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. Also,
you send out mixed messages so people don't always know how to respond to you or know what you really want,
thus creating confusion or conflict in close relationships.
Chapter 2: Mental Interests and Abilities
Mercury in Taurus:
Your mind operates in a very deliberate and methodical manner and you dislike being rushed or forced to give an
opinion before you have thoroughly ruminated and digested an idea. You are also difficult to influence once your mind
is made up.
Though slower to grasp new concepts or learn new skills, you are patient and persevering and, in fact, often
become quite adept at whatever you put your mind and hand to, for you are willing to devote much time and attention
to it. You succeed not so much because of your mental brilliance, but because you have the ability to concentrate and
follow a project through to its completion. You have an aptitude for singing or drawing.
Chapter 3: Emotions: Moods, Feelings, Romance
Moon in Pisces:
Tenderhearted and sympathetic to an unusual degree, you have an understanding of other people's feelings and
needs which borders on being telepathic. You are extremely compassionate and cannot bear to see any fellow
creature - be it human or animal - suffer. Because of your kindness and nonjudgmental attitude, people in pain or
confusion are drawn to you for help, which you readily give. Sometimes your softheartedness is taken advantage of.
You are a gentle, poetic soul and have a great love and affinity for music. Because many of your feelings are
nebulous and vague and you cannot easily verbalize how you experience life, music seems a natural language for you.
You are also tremendously romantic and are often "in love with love".
Moon Square Jupiter:
You have a buoyant, cheerful disposition and reach out to others in a warm, open, friendly way. Your emotional
generosity and lack of pettiness is well known among your circle of friends, and people often seek you out for help,
sympathy, or advice. You are always willing to overlook others' faults, and you sometimes overdo your
Moon Square Neptune:
You are a dreamer, attracted to the inner, mystical side of life, and may have trouble distinguishing the real from the
imagined or illusory. You do not enjoy confrontation and become very evasive when problems in your personal life
arise, escaping into your imagination in order to avoid dealing with them directly. You are also rather gullible and
naive about people, especially if your sympathy has been aroused. You are very sensitive to music and can use it to
bring yourself into emotional balance and harmony.
Venus in Taurus:
In love, you are steadfast and loyal, especially if you have a warm, demonstrative partner. You are very sensually
oriented and need lots of touching and physical affection. You enjoy being pampered with a good meal, loving
massage, or other sensual delights. You are a wonderful lover, very attentive to the comfort and enjoyment of the one
you love. You are tremendously responsive to beauty and physical appearances, and the physical attractiveness of
your partner is very important to you.
Venus Conjunct Mars:
You are extremely amorous and it is difficult for you to go without a romantic involvement for very long. When you
are attracted to someone, you pursue them very ardently and sometimes come on too strong. Doing creative work or
artistic work can also satisfy the very strong desire for love and beauty that you feel.
Chapter 4: Drive and Ambition: How You Achieve Your Goals
Mars in Taurus:
Once you set your mind on a goal, your dedication, determination, and commitment to it are extraordinary. You
pursue your ambitions tenaciously and will stubbornly refuse to give up, let go, or be influenced in any way. Like
Aesop's tortoise, you labor patiently and steadfastly until you achieve what you want - or until it is clear beyond a
shadow of a doubt that all is lost. You are a reliable, consistent, and productive worker, and often shoulder more of
the workload than your co- workers, usually without complaint. The nitty-gritty work often falls to you. You prefer a
regular routine, with definite hours and clearly defined responsibilities and tasks. In fact, establishing a pattern or
routine is very important to your success because once you get started in a certain direction, is easy for you to follow
it through to its completion. Getting started is more difficult. You have a lazy, comfort-loving side and there is often a
good deal of inertia for you to overcome before you get going. Once you get a momentum going, your energy level is
strong and steady.
You are interested in concrete results and solid, practical achievement. You need to have some tangible product or
contribution to show for your efforts, and cannot be content with only intangible rewards (such as having a good time,
learning, or spiritual enrichment). Material well-being and security is also a large factor in determining what you do.
Your stamina and persistence is your great strength but it can also work against you; you can get caught in a rut and
refuse to seize new opportunities. You also tend to play it safe, and to limit yourself in that way.
Chapter 5: Other Influences
Jupiter in Gemini:
You have the ability to see connections between seemingly unrelated ideas or worlds, and to bring them together.
You excel in any field requiring clear intellect, and verbal and communication skills. You have an insatiable curiosity
and may read or watch television constantly in order to satisfy your need for mental stimulation. Your mind never
Jupiter Opposition Neptune:
You are big dreamer, highly idealistic, and open to anything. You can be extremely impractical and gullible, and
will believe anything is possible no matter how "far out" or impossible. You can be an escapist, forever looking for
some Shangri-La. ("Somewhere Over The Rainbow" could be a favorite theme song of yours). You need to balance
your dreamy idealism with temperance and practicality in order to succeed in life. You are also a very generous,
giving soul and sometimes find it difficult to limit your charitable impulses.
Jupiter Trine Pluto:
Your sensitivity to the larger social context of a project gives you the perspective to discern good opportunities
and attract successful pursuits. You are likely to achieve a high level of success in your career or business.
Jupiter Sextile Saturn:
You have the patience and the stamina to realize your visions and bring them down to earth, a fine balance
between hard work and realism, and a positive, hopeful spirit. You grow through following systems and plans, and
taking one step at a time. Overnight success or instant enlightenment is not what you aim for. Your patient,
well-balanced approach gives you credibility with many different types of people, and you are apt to gain an excellent
reputation for being able to do big things without overreaching or becoming pretentious.
Saturn in Leo:
You are very self-conscious and have a great need for ego-affirmation and praise. Expressing yourself freely,
openly, and unself-consciously is not easy for you. You tend to work hard at playing and "having fun", rather than
being light-hearted and spontaneous. Developing self-love and self-acceptance regardless of your "performance" is an
important task for you.
Saturn Square Uranus:
You become tense and upset rather easily. You become irritated by the unwillingness of others to make changes.
Very serious about bringing your inspirations into concrete form, you are inclined to forego tact and diplomacy in
order to accomplish your goals. Your occasional outbreaks of brusque, insensitive behavior often do more harm than
Saturn Trine Neptune:
You are very sensitive to the inner qualities of sincerity, honesty, integrity, and good will. You notice these qualities
(or the lack of them) more quickly than others and bring them up frequently. You are philosophical about life and very
perceptive, but may have an exaggerated sense of your own wisdom and depth of understanding of religious,
metaphysical, artistic, or intuitive subjects.
Saturn Sextile Pluto:
You are capable of overcoming tremendous odds, and of enormous self-discipline and focus. When you set your
sights on achieving something or are presented with a thorny challenge, it is your capacity for eliminating the
superfluous, getting along with very little, and riding through tough times that enables you to triumph eventually.
Uranus in Scorpio:
You are part of a 7 year group of people who break up all manner of taboos regarding death, sex, and any other
personal, private, or difficult topics. Your age group is less modest about sex than other age groups and promiscuity
is not uncommon. You love emotional intensity, and there are many extremists and fanatics in your age group.
Neptune in Sagittarius:
You are part of a 14 year group of people that are extremely idealistic and farsighted in their dreams. Your age
group is very liberal and expansive in outlook, and consequently churches become much more flexible and more
eclectic in their approach during your life time. Religions that do not adapt to the broad-minded attitude of your age
group simply are unable to attract very much interest and involvement from you.
A great deal of metaphysical musing and speculation is evident in your age group, and there is a very strong interest
in all manner of psychic phenomena, UFO's, prophecy, etc. This interest will open many new doors and insights, but
will also often lead to a great deal of fantasizing and speculation that is taken more seriously than it should be.
Neptune Sextile Pluto:
The entire generation to which you belong has tremendous opportunities for spiritual rebirth and awakening. This
will not be forced upon you or precipitated by unavoidable events, rather it comes from an inner yearning and a
natural propensity to seek the depths.
Pluto in Libra:
You are part of a 12 year group of people who are deeply interested in personal relationships. Your age group has
a deeply-rooted yearning to see people relating and communicating with each other effectively and harmoniously.
There is little egotism and a willingness to hear the other person's side of the story and a readiness to compromise and
arbitrate different points of view. In fact, the need for harmonious, peaceful relationships is so strong that there is a
tendency to overlook real differences and to focus only on the similarities in an attempt to bring different parties into
harmony with each other.
Interest in psychology and sociology is high in your age group. There is a tremendous heightening of awareness of
social skills. Your age group will experiment with different marriage styles, family relationships, and even business
relationships in an attempt to bring fair treatment and effective communication between people. Interest and
appreciation for other cultures is also strong, and your age group will work hard to preserve and support the cultural
heritage of all ethnic groups.
Your strong yearning for equitable and harmonious relationships is also reflected in major advancements in trade
agreements, arms control, and international cooperation that are designed and implemented by your generation.
These agreements and policies foster a much safer and more cooperative environment for all, although there is also a
tendency for greedy individuals to take advantage of the conciliatory atmosphere and twist situations to their own
In short, you are part of a generation of individuals who are deeply interested in other people; you are a humanistic
and humanitarian group. You will struggle and experiment with personal relationships, and forge new models for how
people can relate as friends, family members, and members of nations as well.
