Chapter 1: How You Approach Life and How You Appear To Others
Modest, unobtrusive, and often rather quiet or shy, you are a person who is content to be in the background or to
serve as an assistant, in the supporting role rather than in the lead. You are quite humble in your own assessment of
yourself and you have a very strong perfectionistic attitude, with a tendency to be overly self-critical. No matter how
well you do something, you always see the flaws in it and how it could be improved. Often you will simply refuse to
attempt something because you feel you cannot meet your own high standards.
You have an eye for detail and get upset when something is not done just so, usually something others consider
rather inconsequential or trivial. You are hard to please and your relationships with others may suffer because of this.
You also have refined sensitivities and are very discriminating and particular in your choice of foods, clothes, friends,
artwork, etc. Order in your environment is very important to you.
You step into situations rather cautiously, and not without realistically assessing all of the risks and potential
advantages involved. Unless something is a safe bet, you are unlikely to dive into it. You tend to underestimate your
own capacities and to lack confidence and trust in life, which inhibits your spontaneity. Worrying is a bad habit of
yours. On the other hand, you rarely fall flat on your face and what you do, you do very well.
Others see you as a self-sufficient and rather self-contained person. You have a strong sense of propriety.
Politeness, good manners, and correct behavior are important to you. Your clear, cool, objective and nonemotional
attitude is apparent to others first, and though you are really quite helpful and caring, you do not radiate much
sympathy so that others may not see the helpful side as readily. You may seem more businesslike and factual, and
also more conservative, than you really are at heart. You are the person others might go to for technical advice or an
unbiased opinion, but not for emotional support.
You are keenly observant, intelligent, and have a great desire for learning and for self-improvement, but you are
not especially ambitious and are often satisfied in a rather simple, unglamorous position in life.
Chapter 2: The Inner You: Your Real Motivation
Sun in Aquarius:
You are a freedom-loving, strong-willed, and independent-minded individual, and you insist upon living your own
life as you see fit, even if that means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships you cannot be owned
or possessed, and while you are willing to share yourself with another, you do not always adjust easily to the
emotional give and take of a close relationship. Though intellectually open, you can be enormously stubborn,
opinionated, and inflexible on a one-to-one level. You have strong convictions and feelings about fairness and
equality, and you try to live by your ideals, but your ideals about how people SHOULD treat one another don't
always take into account human weaknesses, differences, and needs. You probably dislike sentimentality and
traditional gender roles and "games".
You are fair, intelligent, objective, rational and often let your head rule rather than your heart. You seem rather
self-sufficient and detached emotionally because you are capable of putting aside your personal feelings and viewing
things dispassionately. But once you make up your mind on an issue, you are difficult to sway and can be rather
You think in broad terms and are concerned with the world beyond your own personal sphere - your town, nation,
or even planet. You are likely to become involved in community affairs, social organizations, and groups of all kinds,
or to have a keen interest in such. You enjoy being part of a group endeavor and often find yourself organizing,
managing, or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, you harbor great hopes for the future. You stay current and up to date, and
respond to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and in terms of ideas. When young you were
very influenced by your peers and by group pressures and by all the "latest crazes". You have an experimental mind
and are attracted by the novel.
Your strong points include your concern for human welfare and social betterment, your sense of fairness and
democratic spirit, and your vision. Your faults are your stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very
obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
Sun in 5th house:
You have a very dramatic, creative, expressive nature and you love to perform. You enjoy being the center of
attention and you seek to shine, to excel, and to be outstanding in some unique way. You are very involved in your
own creativity and self-expression, and take great pleasure in developing and using your special talents, whether these
are artistic, athletic, or intellectual. You have a strong sense of pride.
Sun Conjunct Venus:
You are loving and well-loved by others, and have a strong need for kindness, friendship, and affection. Your
artistic and creative powers are also well developed and you do everything in a harmonious, gracious, pleasing
manner. Aesthetics are very important to you. Your personal appearance and attractiveness are also very important
Sun Square Saturn:
Feelings of personal inadequacy, inhibitions, and self-doubt often plague you. You have a cautious, careful, realistic
attitude toward life and are highly responsible and disciplined with regard to your obligations and duties. You tend to
work and struggle more than you need to, and to take yourself too seriously.
Sun Sextile Moon:
You feel that you have the support of your family or others in your environment for your creative efforts and
personal goals, which enables you to act with confidence. You are able to satisfy both your need to be an individual,
and your need for caring relationships and a sense of belonging. You are in harmony with yourself and are therefore
an effective individual.
Chapter 3: Mental Interests and Abilities
Mercury in Aquarius:
You are a progressive thinker, open and receptive to new technologies and breakthroughs in science, and the
latest discoveries in any field. You have high expectations and a deep belief that mankind's problems can be solved
through the use of our creative intelligence and inventive mind. You have no patience for those whose conservative,
unimaginative outlook limits their capacity to find solutions and envision a better future. You also like to keep abreast
of current developments in world affairs, for you instinctively know that what happens in one part of the world affects
everyone. You have a strong humanitarian impulse. Practically speaking, you have an aptitude for organization and
enjoy being involved in cooperative endeavors or businesses that are contemporary and innovative.
Mercury in 6th house:
You use your mind to organize, classify, and bring order to your environment. You are interested in the refinement
of your technical skills and abilities and are a stickler for details. Organizational and secretarial skills, training others in
your area of expertise, or work involving teaching and communications are highly probable for you.
Mercury Opposition Pluto:
Never satisfied with the face value of anything, you are always probing beneath the surface for deeper reasons and
hidden motives - though you rarely reveal your own. You have a very suspicious, even paranoid, side. You mind is
penetrating and deep and you have an aptitude for research, investigative reporting, or private investigation. You are
keenly interested in the deeper aspects of the human psyche, with a sort of "x-ray vision" regarding the inner
motivations and intentions of others. You are drawn to anything secret, hidden, or mysterious, and may pursue
esoteric or occult studies. You are also a forceful and convincing speaker or writer, with the ability to influence
peoples' thinking by the sheer power of your conviction.
Mercury Square Mars:
Argumentative and rather aggressive and critical in discussions, you tend to turn any conversation into a debate,
and sometimes a verbal war. You could be a spokesman for a righteous cause, a lawyer vigorously defending a
client, a sharp analyst or critic. You are a convincing speaker, but are not especially receptive to the ideas and
opinions of others. You have a forceful intellect and an aptitude for mental work.
Mercury Trine Jupiter:
You have an ongoing interest in learning and expanding your mental horizons. You enjoy traveling, philosophical
discussions, and exchanging ideas with those of different experiences and viewpoints. Broad-minded and fair, you are
well-suited to law, consulting, diplomatic relations, and also business. You learn quickly, and can pick up on a new
idea or concept with relative ease.
Chapter 4: Emotions: Moods, Feelings, Romance
Moon in Sagittarius:
Open and generous, you enjoy a wide circle of friends and acquaintances and you thrive on sociability and
fellowship. You are adventurous, playful, freedom-loving, and always ready for a good time. You rarely allow
obstacles or difficulties to keep you down, for no matter how bleak the past or present, you always expect a better,
brighter future. In fact, you are uncomfortable with your own or other people's problems and emotional pain. You
often try to "cheer up" or offer philosophical advice to those who are hurting, but unwittingly you avoid or ignore the
Friendship means a great deal to you, perhaps even more than love or romance. For you to be happy, your mate
must be your best friend and encourage your aspirations and ideals. You also need a great deal of emotional freedom
Moon in 4th house:
You have strong attachments to your past, the place where you grew up, your heritage, and family traditions. In
fact, you may be unable to step out of the habits and roles you learned as a child. Your tie to your mother is very
strong and you also seek mothering and protection from your spouse and other family members as well.
Moon Opposition 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 Sextile Venus:
You feel that little, daily acts of caring and thoughtfulness are essential to the happiness and success of a
relationship and you know how to make others feel accepted, loved, and cherished. You enjoy good relationships
Venus in Aquarius:
You are open and unconventional in your attitude towards love, romance, and sex. You enjoy socializing, bringing
people together, and having many friends of both sexes. You value friendship very highly and are, in fact, more
comfortable being a friend than a lover. You desire an intellectual rapport or spiritual bond with your love partner, but
deep intimacy and emotional bonding do not come easily to you. The role of "husband" or "wife" in the traditional
sense doesn't appeal to you, and you abhor jealousy and possessiveness since you feel that no person truly "belongs"
to another. You appreciate a love partner who will allow you plenty of freedom and is not very emotionally
Venus in 5th house:
You love romance and wish the honeymoon phase of your love affairs would last forever! You need dramatic
romantic gestures and displays of affection from your partner, and you want to feel very, very special, like a King or
Queen, to your beloved. You also have an artistic flair and enjoy creating art or beauty in some form.
Venus Square Saturn:
You are serious and find it difficult to enjoy yourself in a lighthearted, open and playful way with others. You rarely
do something purely for pleasure, and can be very close-fisted and parsimonious. Perhaps due to painful separations
in your early life, you are very cautious about becoming close to people and sharing your feelings. Though you crave
love and affection, intimacy is difficult for you. You may become romantically involved with people who do not value
you or treat you well. You need to learn to love and value yourself before you will find happiness in love.
Chapter 5: Drive and Ambition: How You Achieve Your Goals
Mars in Scorpio:
You are extremely strong-willed and you pursue your goals and desires with passionate dedication and
determination. You are capable of total concentration and tremendous discipline, and you are very difficult to
influence or sway once your mind is made up. When you want something, you can be very one-sided and almost
obsessed with it. You are very instinctive and do not always consciously know why you feel as strongly and deeply
as you do.
You also tend to be secretive and unwilling to reveal your aims and intentions, and the intensity of your will and
desire may not be apparent to others at first. However, you are very forceful in a quiet and subtle way. You often
manipulate or force your will upon other people, without being overtly aggressive. You are not interested in
confrontation but are a formidable foe if you meet opposition or aggression from another. You are courageous and
have a rather primitive, raw side as well.
Mars in 3rd house:
Quick-witted and sharp-tongued, you enjoy arguing, debating, and contesting other people's opinions. You are
quite forthright and sometimes tactless. You can be very convincing about your point of view, but you are prone to a
"hard-sell" approach which sometimes backfires. Challenging mental work is a good avenue for your aggressive
Mars Square Pluto:
You have a powerful will and when you want something, you pursue it passionately and relentlessly until you
achieve it. You may be so driven by your desire that you lose all objectivity. You often become compulsive, even
obsessed, with doing or achieving something, no matter what the costs or how hard you must work for it. Your
forcefulness may be veiled or subtle, for often you do not reveal your real aims and intentions to others until they
cross you. Intense power struggles and relationships with a strong dominance/submissiveness theme are likely. You
have enormous energy reserves, and are capable of extraordinary effort and great achievement if you use your
energies for constructive purposes.
Mars Trine Uranus:
You are dynamic, decisive, and somewhat impulsive. You respond quickly and spontaneously to challenges, and
you enjoy vigorous physical activities that require fast reflexes and a good sense of rhythm and timing. You have an
abundance of energy and vitality, and a restless desire to see progress and change - you hate stagnation. You are
individualistic and make a good leader, spearheading new projects and inspiring others to act.
Chapter 6: 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 in 10th house:
Your career or contribution to the world at large is likely to touch many people's lives in a very positive, helpful
way. You aim high and have an innate confidence and trust both in your own abilities and in life in general, which
enables you to go far. You want to do something BIG with your life, and you attract the support you need to do so,
for your aims are not solely for your own personal benefit. You want to give something back to the world, or to
improve others' lives as well as your own.
Saturn in Scorpio:
You both yearn for, and fear, being emotionally vulnerable with others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy.
Trusting others and letting yourself be known in a deep way doesn't come easily to you, and sexual inhibitions may
result from this. You are very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in
personal relationships, and to be completely open, are important tasks for you.
Saturn in 3rd house:
You are serious-minded and may have difficulty making light social conversation or participating in friendly,
You try to be strictly accurate and are critical of people who exaggerate or talk on subjects they really know little
about. You withhold your thoughts and opinions until you have thought everything through quite thoroughly, and
sometimes your silence discomforts others.
Your mental concentration is very good but your breadth of understanding may not be.
Uranus in Cancer:
You are part of a 7 year group of people who have a strong need to feel unrestrained by family ties and personal
heritage. Your age group tends to find personal relationships very restrictive, and also tends to feel alienated and
distant from family ties and concerns. Forming long-term personal relationships is difficult for your age group, and
divorce rates are high in your group. However, you are an emotional and sensitive group also, and this instability is
painful at times. Finding personal freedom and closeness with others at the same time is a big challenge for you.
Uranus in 11th house:
You have unusual, even eccentric friends, and you are likely to join groups, communities, organizations, or clubs
which promote progressive or unconventional ideas, social change, or innovation in some form. You are dynamic and
creative in business affairs and in organizations.
Neptune in Libra:
You are part of a 14 year group of people who have a very idealistic sense of brotherhood and universal
cooperation, which, among other things, fostered the peace and freedom movement. Your age group is also
interested in the spiritual philosophy and ideals of other cultures, and is not at all dogmatic in its approach to religion.
You incorporate the approaches of other religions. Your age group tends to have an eclectic approach to religion,
utilizing elements from many religious perspectives (e.g. Eastern and Western), and finds it difficult to follow
traditionally defined religious practices.
A gullibility and an unwillingness to be decisive and judgmental inclines your age group to be easily deceived, and
consequently many of the well-intended ideals and goals are frustrated by a lack of clear purpose and direction.
Neptune in 2nd house:
You may have a great deal of confusion over money, financial matters, and ownership. Perhaps these things mean
very little to you. Or possibly you simply don't know how to deal with them in a realistic, effective way.
Also, you may make your living through artistic, musical, or highly imaginative endeavors.
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 Leo:
You are part of a 20 year period that is often referred to as the "ME" generation, a generation that has a very
proud and self-reliant attitude. You are a generation that is very concerned with self-development and personal
integrity. Women's rights and minority rights are issues that your generation has fostered and they reflect your concern
with individual respect, integrity, and honor. Your age group has a deeply felt sense that each person has an equal
right and opportunity to fully develop his or her inner potential.
However, your group also finds it difficult to be part of a team and a strong egotism makes group efforts difficult;
you tend to see the individual as more important than the group. You also defy authority and often feel that no one
has the right to tell you what to do. The strong movement to refuse drafting into the military is one example of your
age group's strong sense of individual rights and freedom.
Your age group has popularized the idea of self-development, and has contributed a great deal to the development
of individual potential as well as human rights. However, there is also a tendency to be rather self-centered; others
may wonder how you can spend so much time developing yourselves and have so little time to contribute to your
The interest in personal development also sometimes manifests as a fascination with particular individuals and a
great deal of hero worship. Every generation, of course, has lots of idols, but your generation is particularly prone to
needing a specific individual to represent and embody an idea or feeling, and to serve as a focal point of interest.
Perhaps the most extreme example of this is the concept of the guru that was popularized by your age group.
Pluto in 12th house:
You have a deep interest in secrets, the underworld or unconscious, and anything hidden and mysterious.
Psychoanalysis, investigating your dreams, and other methods of uncovering secrets are very interesting to you. You
may be exceptionally perceptive intuitively or psychically. Your emotions and subconscious energies are complex,
and periodic transformations and personal crises are sprinkled liberally throughout your lifetime.
