Chapter 1: How You Approach Life and How You Appear To Others
High-spirited, enthusiastic, and exuberant, you love adventure, change, exploring new territory, and are not happy
confined to the same safe, familiar, secure little world all the time. You have a strong restlessness and yearning for
something greater than anything you've yet experienced, and you often live in your dreams and visions for the future.
You tend to believe that the grass is greener somewhere else and you like to keep moving, either literally or
figuratively. Idealistic and optimistic, you always expect something better ahead. You love to have a goal, something
to aim for, but once you achieve it you are on to something else. You are ever on the lookout for new opportunities
and you are a gambler, willing to take risks and to break new ground. The possibility of discovering something new is
what makes life interesting for you. You have great faith in life and bounce back quickly from disappointment and
Freedom-loving and independent, you cannot tolerate being caged for very long, and friends and loved ones must
respect your need for freedom of movement. Binding commitments and responsibilities often weigh heavily upon you
and you may resist "growing up" and taking on the limitations of adult life.
You are friendly and outgoing and have a great sense of fun and playfulness. You are also philosophically minded
and often quite outspoken about your convictions and beliefs. Sometimes you get carried away with your enthusiasm
of the moment and you tend to exaggerate. You are often a big talker, full of big promises, and you are usually pretty
convincing. You do everything in a big way, a generous way. You like to have the best, and you heartily dislike
stinginess, littleness, or pettiness. Your vision is always large. You are able to perceive the big picture, general
patterns and principles, and are well suited to politics, business, higher education or religion.
Other people see you as a good sport and a good friend, but one who is not always consistent and dependable.
You may also be seen as a wise person since you do not get bogged down in pettiness and trivialities, and are able to
communicate a larger way of looking at situations, one that opens up new potentials. You are a person who believes
in miracles, grace, or just plain good luck, someone who never gives up on life, and you inspire and encourage others
to keep looking forward.
Chapter 2: The Inner You: Your Real Motivation
Sun in Cancer:
You have powerful emotional attachments to the past, your family, your childhood, those places you associate with
safety and security and your beginnings. Maintaining a connection with your roots and heritage and keeping family
bonds strong are very important to you. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, you tend to cling to whatever is dear to
you, be it person, familiar place, or cherished possession.
You are sympathetic, nurturing, supportive, and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. You like to
be needed, to care for others, and you often worry about the people you love. You have a very strong need for a
sense of belonging and acceptance, and you center much of your life around your home. You are more concerned
about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration, and
tenderness impress you more than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
You are primarily emotional and your views are often dominated by your feelings and by your own personal,
subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic, or abstract principles. It is difficult for you to judge situations in a
fair, objective manner for your personal sympathies and loyalties usually enter in. You take things very personally, and
sometimes build a wall around yourself to protect yourself from pain and rejection. You feel rather shy and vulnerable
at heart. You also tend to be moody, experiencing frequent emotional ups and downs. You need to have a place and
time in your life to withdraw, introspect, dream, and replenish yourself; otherwise you become cranky and unhappy
with those around you.
You function in an instinctive, nonrational manner and like to immerse yourself in creative activities where you can
express your feelings, imagination, and instincts. You often love to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to
nurture and nourish others. You also have a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that
may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
Your compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are your strong points. Your faults include an inability to release the
past and go forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency to be self-pitying when you meet hardships in life.
Sun in 7th house:
You invest a tremendous amount of your creative energy into your relationships with others, particularly your
marriage or other close partnerships. You feel you need others in order to be all that you can be, and you are
disinclined to solitary activities and endeavors.
Working with people on a one-to-one basis to bring about mutual understanding, harmony, and satisfaction is an
area in which you can really excel. Counseling or negotiating are talents of yours.
Sun Conjunct Mercury:
You tend to see things from your perspective only and to be rather subjective. You also enjoy talking and
expressing your views but you don't always listen as well. You have a clear mind, a love of learning and new
experiences, and need constant mental stimulation and activity.
Sun Trine Neptune:
You are imaginative and sensitive to anything colorful, beautiful, or magical. You are attracted to artistic and
creative pursuits, music, and mysticism. Your spiritual values color your whole perspective and approach to life. You
are idealistic and perhaps impractical.
Sun Sextile Pluto:
You have a deep belief in your own power and your ability to survive any change and to emerge victoriously from
any difficulty. You have tremendous inner resources and strength. Intense, strong willed, and zealous, you pursue
your desires and goals with complete dedication and singleness of purpose, and you may be somewhat compulsive,
even fanatical at times. You like to live intensely and have no respect for people who are weak, who avoid
confronting life and their own destiny.
Chapter 3: Mental Interests and Abilities
Mercury in Cancer:
You are highly interested in inner, subjective, and personal issues, and your thinking is based more on feelings,
intuition, personal experiences, and prejudices rather than reason or logic. Intellectual abilities and accomplishments
without heart or soul mean little to you. You are empathic and would be an excellent counselor, for you are a
sensitive listener and deeply interested in a person's feelings and inner life. In addition to psychology, you are drawn
to education, art, poetry, music, or mythology. You are not especially confident about speaking in public, but will
open up and share your thoughts in small, intimate groups. You enjoy keeping a diary or personal journal and reading
the chronicles of others' lives and personal development.
Mercury in 7th house:
You are often involved in verbal exchanges, interviewing, discussing, debating, counseling, negotiating, getting and
giving feedback, and sharing information. You are drawn to intelligent and verbal people, with whom you can
communicate and from whom you can learn. You love to have an audience to hear your ideas, and you also
appreciate eloquent presentations by others.
Mercury Sextile Mars:
You speak clearly, decisively, and convincingly, and thoroughly enjoy a vigorous discussion or debate. You would
be an effective lawyer or public speaker, a salesman of ideas. Others tend to listen to you and follow your lead, and
you have a talent for directing people and making decisions. You also have an aptitude for writing, especially criticism
Mercury Sextile Pluto:
Your mind is deep and penetrating and you are interested in anything secret, mysterious, or hidden, including the
deeper aspects of the human psyche. You possess an aptitude for private investigation, psychology and research
work. You are also drawn to esoteric or occult studies.
Chapter 4: Emotions: Moods, Feelings, Romance
Moon in Aquarius:
You are not easily moved by emotional displays and can be curiously detached from your own and others'
emotions. It's almost as if you could turn your feelings on and off at will so you should be careful not to leave the
switch "off" too often, for you could easily become too impersonal. Family ties and attachments are not as important
to you as they are to most people and you often consider your friends closer to you than your blood relatives.
Certainly, your sympathy and concern extends much beyond your immediate family. In your personal relationships,
you insist upon a certain amount of independence and the freedom to pursue friendships with as many people, of both
sexes, as you choose. You do not appreciate a jealous, possessive partner.
You feel comfortable in an atmosphere that is open and experimental, and you have little taste for convention and
Moon in 2nd house:
You are likely to be a great collector of things - a real pack rat in fact - for your belongings give you a sense of
security and continuity with the past, which is important to you. Antiques or things with sentimental value from your
past are especially dear to you.
You may also cling rather tightly to both money and possessions, keeping them "in the family" rather than sharing
freely with those outside of your immediate circle.
Moon Opposition Uranus:
You crave excitement, change, and discovery, and cannot tolerate a routine or lifestyle that offers little in the way
of surprise or challenge. Excitable, spontaneous, and enthusiastic about anything new, you may be perceived by
others as being too impulsive, especially in personal relationships. It is not easy for you to make or keep
commitments, since you don't know how you will be feeling from one day to the next. Emotional freedom is very
important to you. Your domestic life can be very unstable - but you like it that way.
Moon Square Venus:
You have conflicting emotional desires and needs which complicate your personal life. You may feel that you
cannot depend on your love partner to take care of you or perhaps you cannot decide what you really want in a love
relationship: a parent or a lover. If your needs for emotional sustenance and love are not satisfied, overeating
(especially sweets) can be a problem for you.
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 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 Uranus:
Your love feelings are easily aroused and your romantic relationships begin with a sudden electric attraction, but
they often end abruptly, and you may be in and out of love frequently - especially in your younger years. You crave
emotional excitement and need to feel spontaneous and free, so you may avoid making firm personal commitments.
Unusual or nontraditional forms of love and relationships appeal to you, and you are attracted to unique, creative, or
Venus Trine Saturn:
Loyalty, fidelity, and security are very important to you in love. You are cautious about giving your heart away but
true to the one who does win your love. Your tastes are simple, even austere, and you do not appreciate frivolity.
You are interested in a person's character and inner qualities far more than their appearance. Casual or superficial
relationships don't interest you at all, for love seems to get deeper and richer and more satisfying for you with time.
Chapter 5: Drive and Ambition: How You Achieve Your Goals
Mars in Virgo:
You are a perfectionist and have high standards for your own work. You often feel that if you want something
done right you must do it yourself, for others do not do as thorough a job as you do. Doing a task well is very
important to you, and you may labor over minute details that others wouldn't bother with. You strive for accuracy,
efficiency, and precision, and you become very irritable when things are not done "right".
On the other hand, you can become so much of a perfectionist and so self-critical that you will not even attempt
many activities and projects, feeling that your efforts simply won't be good enough. You are usually modest and
realistic in assessing what you can accomplish and, if anything, you underestimate yourself. Of course, practice makes
perfect, and if you do apply yourself diligently in some area, you gradually gain self-confidence as you master skills
and develop expertise.
You conserve your energy and pace yourself so that you do not waste or diffuse your efforts. An unwillingness to
take risks or venture from the beaten track can sometimes limit your opportunities. In short, you may not aim high
enough and settle for too little in life.
Mars in 8th house:
You meet numerous challenges and possibly defeats in pursuit of your goals and desires, and your setbacks often
occur because you've been too rash or intent on working your own will regardless of the impact on others. You are
intense and passionate, and simply don't know when to stop sometimes! Recklessness with others can be a problem
Mars Conjunct Pluto:
When you want something, you go after it with passionate zeal and are sometimes so driven by your desire that
you lose all objectivity. You get so deeply involved in whatever you are pursuing that you become one-sided, even
fanatical. Strong-willed and stubborn, you insist on having your way no matter the cost. You are fascinated with
power. You often try to overpower anything or anyone you perceive as an obstacle, if not physically then by the
force of your will. You can be ruthless and impersonal when it comes to achieving your ambitions and goals in life.
You have enormous energy and are capable of extraordinary effort and great achievement. You can also become a
Chapter 6: Other Influences
Jupiter in Aquarius:
Your strength lies in your ability to be innovative, open to new progressive concepts, willing to experiment and to
reject customs and traditions when they cease to serve any positive function in the present. Also, you have an
expansive view of the world, one that includes humanity and not only your own small, personal circle.
Jupiter in 2nd house:
Wealth, material well-being, and prosperity are very important to you, and you would never choose a profession
that didn't offer you great promise and opportunity for growth (financial and otherwise).
You are very generous and sometimes careless with money; you don't want to hold on to it, you want to enjoy it
and use it to enrich your life. Whatever you do with your money, you do in a big way - making it, spending it, or
blowing it! You may accumulate elegant, high quality things (art, jewelry, etc).
Jupiter Square Neptune:
You have a need to escape from the demands of everyday life, and reach out to something bigger, more exotic,
more exciting. Traveling is good for you. You may also daydream, fantasize, or philosophize a great deal.
Saturn in Capricorn:
You have a great capacity for self-denial in the pursuit of a long-range goal. You are capable of hard work and
persistent labor, but you may lack joyfulness and the ability to play. You often feel burdened by life's demands and
responsibilities, and may envy those who seem to attract what they want in life without a great deal of personal effort.
There is a very judgmental, stern, and uncompromising side of yourself which may inhibit you a great deal. You
must avoid becoming heavy and cynical, or becoming a rather callous, sophisticated adult whose practicality and
realism squeeze out the playful, imaginative side of life.
Saturn in 1st house:
You have a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life which colors everything you do. Caution and realism
are your virtues though you limit yourself at times by being too careful, shy, or fearful, and not believing in yourself
enough or being assertive when necessary. Others find you difficult to get to know intimately, as you tend to distance
yourself from them or to put forth a rather stern, "adult" face to the world.
Uranus in Leo:
You are part of a 7 year group of people who are unusually self-willed, proud, and egotistical. You are a group
that defies authority and insists on having its own way. Parents and school teachers found that it was extremely
difficult to discipline your age group. Governments that are repressive to individual expression and freedom meet a
great deal of resistance from your age group, and you tend to rise up against any form of tyranny and oppressive rule.
Uranus in 8th house:
Your life is characterized by sudden disruptions and events which change the direction of your life quite
unexpectedly. You may be impatient and reckless at certain times, impulsively acting out your urge for new life and
change. You are an emotionally complex person and you are capable of intense, unexpected outbursts of feelings and
If you share material assets and resources with another person (as in a marriage or business partnership), your
fortunes are likely to fluctuate wildly or change quickly for better or worse.
Neptune in Scorpio:
You are part of a 14 year group of people that have very intense psychic sensitivity and imagination. Your age
group is very attracted to the strange, weird, and unusual. The sense of the macabre and bizarre is strong, and this is
reflected in much of the music, art, and fashions of your age group. Novels and movies with mystery and chilling
suspense are also popular with your age group. Emotional depression, drug use, and suicide are likely to be relatively
high in your age group. There is also a deep mystical sense, and Eastern religions and meditation are very attractive to
your age group.
Neptune in 10th house:
You are a very idealistic person, and you want to see your ideals, hopes, and dreams made concrete and real in
the everyday world. You are driven to put your ideals into action.
When young you may be rather aimless or confused about your place in the world. In early adult life it is likely that
you struggle to find ways to express your imagination, fantasies, and ideals in your career. Work that involves
compassionate service (such as medicine or the ministry) may be your calling. If you lack personal integrity and
honesty, you quickly go to the opposite extreme and you can con others through dishonesty and trickery. Music, art,
film-making or entertainment are also areas in which you are well-suited.
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 Virgo:
You are part of a 15 year group of people that are driven by the need to find an ethical standard and a clear sense
of what is right and what is wrong. There is a subconscious drive to straighten out all the world's evils and create a
world of perfect order. There is a feeling of repulsion to anything ugly, dirty, or grotesque. Oddly enough, there is
also often a fascination with these very things that are so distasteful, and often a feeling of hopelessness and despair
about the world's condition.
These inner, emotional and conflicting qualities are reflected in the attitudes and life styles of your generation. Most
people of your age group are conservative and ethical, and a small minority goes to the opposite extreme and relishes
being strange or unusual in appearance, and sloppy or even grotesque in manners and appearance. There seems to
be no middle ground for your generation. Usually, the rebellious type of behavior comes out during adolescence, and
tends to subside thereafter, and your age group tends to be very conservative in later life.
Your age group is not very good at compromising and tends to have strong ideas about what is right and what is
wrong. There is a strong feeling that you must extinguish evil in the world. Certainly, fostering good works is very
commendable, but a categorical and simple-minded response to complex issues is not helpful. Your age group will
undergo great transformations in attitudes regarding Good and Evil and will swing to great extremes. Your generation
will also make great contributions in the areas of medicine and nutrition, ecology, and education.
Pluto in 8th house:
You are a person of great depth and have a deep interest in the hidden or darker side of life. Issues and
experiences others shun, you are drawn to and compelled to examine. The use and misuse of personal, social, and
political power intrigues you. Death is also an area you are fascinated with and may explore in depth. You may have
many experiences in which you are forced to burn your bridges and start over again.
