Personal Interpretation Profile
The ascendant is the sign that
was rising over the horizon at the time of birth. More than any other chart
factor, the sign of the ascendant to be accurate is dependant on both time (it
changes by 15 degrees every hour) and place of birth (someone born at the same
time on the opposite side of the world will have the opposite sign on the
ascendant or 'rising'). As such, it is the sign that brings us into physical
incarnation, and the planet that rules that sign is said to be the ruler of the
chart, or our planetary ruler for this lifetime. Hence the sign and house
position of the ascendant's ruler are of particular importance. The ascending
sign shows the way in which we approach life and the world in general. It can
be related to what some psychologists call the persona, the mask we place
between our inner selves and the world. As such it shows the way in which we
are perceived by others, at least their first impressions of us. The ascendant
represents the manner in which we must express ourselves in order to feel
secure, and also the filter through which we perceive life and its challenges.
It is the cusp of the first house, the house associated with our personal
identity and self expression and represents the kind of energy and types of
activities that we need to enliven us physically.
Libra is a Cardinal Air sign.
With Libra rising at the time of your birth, you express Libran characteristics
in your approach to life. There is a need to base action on an objective and
fair assessment of any situation. The keynote of Libra is balance. Libra on the
ascendant gives you the ability to see the various alternatives in any
situation, and to see the other persons point of view. However, if overdone
this can lead to indecisiveness that can be crippling to action, and a sitting
on the fence type of behaviour. You try to base your actions on what is true
and just, but must learn to make decisions and accept responsibility for the
consequences. The first impression others have of you is of a friendly, fair
and just person, or as somewhat superficial and indecisive in your behaviour.
Libra is ruled by Venus, the
position of this planet will be of particular importance in your chart.
* Ascendant Sextile Mercury
The sextile between Mercury and
your ascendant shows that you have a great facility for absorbing information
and knowledge, and the ability to explain what you have learned in a clear and
understandable way. You are a good communicator, and you enjoy situations where
you can express your views and air your intellectual knowledge, you are
persuasive rather than argumentative. You have at least an intellectual understanding
of who you are and what you want out of life, but the energy to put this in to
practice, and to understand your deeper motivations, will have to come from
some other area of your chart.
* Ascendant Sextile Uranus
The sextile between Uranus and
your Ascendant indicates that you are something of a rebel, in your way of
thinking and in your general behaviour. You value your freedom and independence
in all areas of your life, and you will constantly be seeking new experiences
as an escape from situations that have become routine and dull. You have a
great creative potential and a well developed intuition, when you follow your
hunches you will usually be right. You are open-minded and progressive in your
thinking, and are able to communicate your thoughts clearly.
In the solar system the Sun is
the centre around which all the other planets revolve, bound by its
gravitational force. Similarly, in the birth chart the Sun represents the
"centre" of our personality, or the core of our being, around which
all the other psychological drives and needs, symbolised by the planets,
Just as, in the solar system, the
Sun is the source of light and life generating energy, so the Sun represents
the source of consciousness and life within us all. It is our will to be and
our sense of individuality. The birth chart, however, represents the solar
system as seen from the earth, not the Sun. Most of us are not centred in our
Sun, but in our earthbound, or sense-bound ego. For most of us then, the Sun
represents our "Higher Self" or Spirit. It is the immortal spark of
the universal spirit which is uniquely ourselves, as opposed to our transient
and mortal ego centred personality. The Sun is therefore what we are striving
The sign position of and aspects
to the Sun, as seen from the earth, show how this radiant inner self works
through the medium of our ego centred personality. It is the fundamental tone
of our being, and as such is the most important placement in the chart.
* Sun In Sagittarius
With the Sun in the mutable fire
sign of Sagittarius, your basic nature is outgoing and open-minded. You have a
need to explore and to find out what is just over the horizon. This need can be
expressed literally through travel, or on a more mental level through the
exploration of ideas and philosophical systems. You may combine both,
travelling for the purpose of expanding your mind. You are adaptable and
versatile, able to make the most out of any situation. You see life as a great
adventure, and it is the future and future possibilities that draw you on.
You may be prone to exaggeration,
and your blindly optimistic and boisterous nature may make you careless and
irresponsible. You may have to learn the hard way that you need to take care of
unfinished business before you can move on to your next adventure.
* Sun In 3rd House
With the Sun in the 3rd house of
your chart there is a need to be heard and to be noticed by those around you.
The 3rd house is the area of life where we exchange thoughts, ideas and
knowledge. With the Sun here it's in these areas, and also through travel that
you'll best develop your own thoughts, views and perspective on life. No matter
how intelligent or knowledgeable you may seem to others, you'll always feel the
need to learn more and to improve your communication skills.
* Sun Sextile Moon
With the Sun and the Moon in a
positive aspect, you have learned from the experiences of your past, and these
experiences serve as a valuable foundation for the present and future. You have
the inner confidence and courage to face life's challenges.
Your relationship with your
parents as a child would have probably been with major conflicts, and this has
carried into adulthood as you generally get on with your parents, and they're
always there to lend a helping hand when you need it. Even if their own
relationship had problems, this probably wouldn't have had any long term
effects on your own relationship with either of them.
* Sun Conjunct Mercury
With the Sun and Mercury in
conjunction you may occasionally lack objectivity in your thinking, identifying
too much with your opinions. Although you like to express your thoughts, your
words may not always be backed by the facts, but more of an expression of how you
would like things to be. Nevertheless, with more objectivity and tolerance of
others' opinions, you would have a tremendous skill in communicating ideas and
concepts to others in a clear and understandable way.
In the birth chart, the Moon is
second in importance only to the Sun. Unlike the other planets the Moon orbits
the earth, and seen from the earth is the same size as the Sun (hence the
possibility of total eclipses). The Moon gives off no light of its own,
however, but reflects and polarises the light of the Sun.
The Moon represents memories,
feelings and instinctive responses that lie just below the level of
consciousness. As the Moon orbits the earth, it generates the movements of the
tides and governs other natural cycles, such as the menstrual cycle in women.
The Moon therefore symbolises the ebb and flow of feeling and emotion
(symbolised by water in Astrology), and the feminine principle in nature and in
The sign position of and aspects
to the Moon show how we react instinctively, and what we need to feel
comfortable and secure. As children the Moon is the Mother, or at least how we
experienced our mother. As we grow older this extends to our relationships with
women in general (particularly for men), and our instinctive or conditioned
responses to the world in general; based on the often unconscious memories of
this early nurturing experience (or lack of it).
* Moon in Aquarius
With the Moon in the fixed air
sign of Aquarius, there is an instinctive tendency to think about your
feelings, rather than acting on them, or actually feeling them. There is a
mixture of openness to the new, combined with a stubborn resistance to change.
You value personal freedom and independence, in fact you need it to feel comfortable,
but this can lead to problems in your emotional life, which you can probably
rationalise away. You prefer not to dwell on past emotional difficulties or
conflicts, preferring to be open to future possibilities, but your emotions do
not always obey your thoughts. The unconventionality and eccentricity
associated with this sign is softened by the emotional nature of the Moon, and
you are generally friendly, with an innate humanitarianism.
* Moon in 5th House
The 5th House represents the
field of experience connected with children, love and laughter. With the Moon
here you may always find yourself on the lookout for love. As a parent,
experiences with your children may bring back memories and feelings connected
with your own childhood and your relationship with your own parents.
*Moon Sextile Mercury
The Moon and Mercury in a sextile
aspect heighten your emotional perception. You are sensitive to other people's
emotions, even if they don't openly express how they are feeling. Generally,
you are also able to understand your own emotions objectively and understand
where your feelings are coming from. Therefore, understanding others and
yourself enables you to help others who are going through emotional
difficulties. You can often help them gain a different perspective on their
problems, either professionally or simply to help friends.
You have an excellent memory,
able to absorb and remember information with ease, and you learn from your past
mistakes as well as successes.
*Moon Trine Saturn
The Moon in a positive trine
aspect to Saturn will provide a stabilising influence to other more stressful
aspects of your personality. Your early home life and conditioning will
probably have given you a deep sense of responsibility and the need for self-discipline
which will always be there. Even if you rebel against it at times, you still
take your responsibilities seriously.
Emotionally you may be rather
reserved, perhaps even inhibited in some ways, and you will need to feel
completely secure before you reveal your deepest feelings to anyone.
Nevertheless, you always have a ready shoulder for others to cry on.
You have excellent organisational
abilities and can put a lot of creative effort into your home and professional
life. You don't ask for more than you give out, and feel that you have to earn
whatever you get, an end to which you can work with discipline and patience.
Mercury is the closest planet to
the Sun. Along with Venus it is one of the inferior planets, that is, its orbit
lies within the earth's orbit.
In mythology, Mercury is the
messenger of the gods. In the birth chart, Mercury represents the urge to
communicate with and exchange information with others. In the mind, it
represents our rational thought processes, or the ability to analyse and reach
logical conclusions. In the body, it is the nervous system, which co-ordinates
and unifies all the different bodily functions into an organised whole. Mercury
can be said to represent electricity in the form of information. Mercury
therefore rules all forms of communication and exchange of information, and the
ability to organise facts into a consistent view of the world.
The sign position of and aspects
to Mercury in the chart show how one thinks and communicates, that is, the way
in which our thoughts are expressed, and the way in which we receive such
information from the world around us.
* Mercury in Sagittarius
With Mercury in the mutable fire
sign of Sagittarius, your thinking is open-minded and optimistic. You prefer to
think in broad philosophical terms rather than get bogged down in petty
details. Although this is generally not a bad thing you may tend to overlook
the fact that some details are important. You will try to live your life by
what you believe and what you think is the best way to be, regardless of what
other people may think, and you can be rather tactless in what you say. Your
mind is restless and open to the future, refusing to be tied down by the past
or present and other people may be frustrated by your refusal to be pinned down
or express a definite opinion on some issue. It is not that you have no
opinions, it is just that tomorrow it may suit you to change them, so it's best
to keep your options open.
* Mercury in 3rd House
Mercury in the 3rd House
indicates that you're always ready to learn, and you have a lively, witty and
observant intellect. You'll probably have something to say about almost
anything, but may have to control a tendency to occasionally express opinions
before all the facts are known. You'll enjoy communicating with others, and
will generally pay close attention to detail.
* Mercury Conjunct Uranus
With the conjunction between
Mercury and Uranus you don't like to be told what to think by anyone, insisting
on your right to make up your own mind. This isn't necessarily a bad thing
although it may occasionally lead to a tendency to be obstinate or stubborn
just for the sake of it, sometimes saying and doing things just for the shock
effect it produces.
Possessing an insatiable
curiosity, this aspect also greatly stimulates your intellect. Nevertheless, at
times, you may find it difficult to stop your mind from racing ahead before you
have fully understood what you have learned.
Although you have many original
and inventive thoughts and ideas, whether or not you'll be able to make any
practical use of your ideas will depend on how well you can discipline your
Venus, like Mercury, lies within
the orbit of the earth. If Mercury can be likened to electricity in the
form of information, then Venus can be
likened to the magnetic field generated by the electric current. One of the
meanings of Venus is therefore "personal magnetism".
In mythology Venus is the goddess
of love. In the birth chart, Venus represents the social and love urge, and the
need for harmony and exchange of feelings and affection with others. Venus is
our need to form relationships and our power to attract such relationships. It
is also our sense of values, based on what attracts or repels us.
The sign position of any aspect
to Venus shows how we express these needs to others and the kind of response we
need in order to feel in harmony. If Venus is adversely aspected theses
responses may not always be what we consciously desire but are often necessary
in order to force us to recognise some unexpressed part of ourselves.
* Venus in Capricorn
Venus in the cardinal earth sign
of Capricorn indicates a rather conservative and practical approach to
relationships. You are attracted to people who promise security and long term
commitment. Position and power in the world are also important to you, you feel
'why marry the second violin when you can have the conductor'. You are capable
of seeing the potential in your partner and pushing them to achieve the highest
that they are capable of. This may take some time and the investment of a lot
of energy and faith on your part, but you are patient. You need to know where
you stand at all times, from day to day arrangements, to long term plans and
goals. It takes some time for you to trust enough to allow others to get to
you, but when you are able to relax in another's company you are able to
express the warm sensuous side of your nature.
Financially, you are always in
control, you keep careful track of your bank balance; you need the security of
always knowing your position. This stems from a need to maintain financial
independence, you do not like to be dependent on anyone in this area. You go
for the long term investment, rather than risky, get rich quick schemes. You
have a talent for taking nothing, and building something solid and secure from
* Venus in 4th House
Venus is in the 4th House of your
chart, the area of life concerned with home and roots, both material and psychological.
This therefore indicates a strong need for harmony and peace in your home
surroundings. You'll actually find it difficult to live in an atmosphere of
tension and strife, and will generally do anything to smooth over problems,
even to the point of avoiding conflicts or problems that need to be discussed.
There may be a tendency to lean too heavily on those in your home environment,
whether on your partner or immediate family.
* Venus Trine Mars
The trine between Venus and Mars
indicates that you're a sociable and warm-hearted person. Always ready to give
others the benefit of the doubt, you can't hold a grudge for too long. You
enjoy being sociable and having a good time with friends, and you're able to
mix easily in any social situation. You look for the best in people, and can
bring the best out in others.
However, this apparently
easy-going nature may tempt some people to take advantage of you, thinking
you'll allow them to get away with it. But if others overstep the bounds of
your tolerance and understanding you won't be afraid to put them straight in no
* Venus Square Jupiter
With the square between Venus and
Jupiter, you may at times give in to self-indulgence, especially when
difficulties give you the excuse to neglect duties and responsibilities. In any
case, you don't like to be hemmed in by responsibilities. You'll expect a
partner to allow you personal freedom, but you may not be too generous in
extending the same rights to them.
* Venus Square Saturn
The square between Venus and
Saturn indicates some difficulty in the handling of your personal
relationships. You may have difficulty in finding a partner who lives up to
your rather exacting expectations. Judging the other's faults harshly, you'll
not allow anyone to get too close until you feel that they're safe and can be
trusted. You don't express affection easily, withholding your feelings out of
the fear that they will be rejected.
This feeling may result from
experiences as a child as one of your parents, possibly your father, may have
been indifferent or difficult to get close to. The rejection you felt then has
carried through to the present and you'll therefore approach present
relationships warily. On the other hand, the father may not have been around at
The way around this conflict is
to establish this missing sense of security by achieving something through your
own efforts. When you realise that you don't need the support of anyone to make
something of your life, you'll feel happier and more secure about yourself.
* Venus Sextile Uranus
You don't like routine, and would
be best suited to a profession that allows change and variety in your
surroundings and the people you deal with.
* Venus Square Pluto
The square to Venus from Pluto
will have a deep and powerful effect on your personal relationships. You'll
probably have a deep need to be the one in control in your relationships, to be
the one who calls the shots, and if you attract someone of like mind your
relationship could become a constant power battle until one of you decides to
call it a day.
If, on the other hand, you
attract someone who's prepared to put up with your tendency to dominate and get
your own way, you could soon become bored and start to look for someone with a
little more fight.
Many of your problems arise from
the fact that you don't really know what it is that you want from a
relationship. Independence or stability, freedom or security, trying to find a
middle ground won't be easy with your volatile emotions, but that's what you
must try to do. You'll also have to be honest with yourself and your partner
and understand what you're both looking for in a relationship.
Mars is the first planet in the
series out from the Sun that is outside the orbit of the earth. As the first
superior planet, Mars represents energy directed outward from the self into the
world. It is the energy to initiate action and the ability to meet challenges
and overcome obstacles. In mythology, Mars is the god of war. In the birth
chart, Mars is the self assertive and aggressive urge, the sex drive and the
need to achieve our desires. Positively, Mars is expressed as courage,
initiative, and the will-power to pursue our goals. Negatively expressed, Mars
is impatience, violence and the use of force or threats.
The sign position of and aspects
to Mars in the chart show how we assert ourselves and express our desires. Mars
is traditionally a masculine planet, and therefore represents the expression of
the male ego. In a women's chart, the energy of Mars is often repressed by
social and family conditioning, and indicates how she will experience the male
ego through the men around her, whether positively or negatively expressed. It
is, however, becoming increasingly possible for women to break away from
traditional passive roles, and express their own Martian drives, but this is
often not completely successful until after the age of about 30.
* Mars in Virgo
With Mars in the mutable earth
sign of Virgo you will put a great deal of energy into organising your
practical and material affairs. No matter how tight money is, you will somehow
always manage to pay your bills and provide the basic necessities of life. You
may be over critical both of yourself and others, with a tendency to constantly
analyse motives, and the need to understand the whys and wherefores of
everything you do, particularly in the area of your sex life. If this is not
taken to inhibiting extremes you can gain great insight into the hidden or
unconscious motives and needs, both your own and those of others. You should
avoid a tendency to worry or feel guilty when the actions of others drive you
into expressing your anger or aggression.
* Mars in 12th House
With Mars in the 12th House you
may occasionally have a vague sense of irritation or anger, the source of which
you can't really put your finger on. There may be times of emotional confusion,
when you're not entirely sure of some of your motivations, or you're unable to
let go of your aggression, therefore holding it all in.
However, the upside of this
placing is that you're able to put the needs of other people, especially those
who do need help, before your own and fight willingly on their behalf.
* Mars Sextile Uranus
With the sextile between Mars and
Uranus you'll have a great deal of restless energy that will need some outlet
if it's not to become nervous tension. You like to go your own way, to do your
own thing. You'll tolerate restrictions on your freedom only as long as you think
you have to, but once you feel your responsibilities have been fulfilled you'll
soon insist on following your own path again.
This aspect also gives the drive
and determination to tolerate the most difficult conditions if you know that
they'll eventually lead you to your goal. You're a bit of an intellectual
rebel, and won't be told what to think by any authority.
* Mars Square Neptune
The square between Mars and
Neptune indicates that there will be times in your life when you suffer from
periods of confusion and self-doubt about who you are, where you're going, and
what you should be doing with your life. You also have an addictive nature
which takes all too easily to drink, drugs and any other weird and wonderful
pastime. The truth is you really don't have the physical or emotional
constitution to cope with constant abuse - so if possible, all things in
moderation, or not at all.
The planets up to and including
Mars have been concerned with the establishment of ourselves as individuals,
and with the satisfaction of our own needs and desires. The planets beyond Mars
connect us with a larger order.
As the largest planet in the
solar system, Jupiter represents expansion and growth. It is the urge to grow
beyond our individual limitations and the need to feel part of a larger order,
whether this be a particular religion, philosophy or social system. Jupiter,
the king of the gods, is traditionally the bestower of faith, optimism and the
ability to expand and prosper. It is the planet that promotes personal growth,
gives us confidence in ourselves and trust in a higher power or greater plan.
Negatively, Jupiter can manifest as overconfidence, irresponsibility and the
tendency to over-extend ourselves or promise too much.
The sign position of and aspects
to Jupiter in the chart show what kinds of experiences and types of activity
create an inner faith and optimism, and the sense of being connected to the
larger scheme of things.
* Jupiter in Scorpio
With Jupiter in the fixed water
sign of Scorpio, you will create opportunities throughout your life through
your capacity for shrewd, critical judgement of people and situations. You are
intense and uncompromising in your attempts to pursue your goals. This will
probably get you where you want to go, eventually, but there is a danger that
you could alienate others on the way, unless you are prepared to include them
in your plans. The mysteries of life and death may fascinate you, and your
philosophy may be influence by interests and beliefs that others consider to be
occult or taboo subjects.
* Jupiter in 2nd House
With Jupiter in the 2nd House of
your chart you'll enjoy accumulating life's little luxuries. Although the
acquisition of money and possessions will not be too much of a problem through
your life, it could be a matter of easy come easy go. You're generous and what
you earn could be spent just as quickly, so occasionally you'll have to be
somewhat discriminating in your generosity and spending.
* Jupiter Sextile Neptune
With the Sextile between Jupiter
and Neptune you'll occasionally tend to idealise those to whom you feel close,
attributing motives and feelings to them that they may not really have. At
times, your reluctance to admit to yourself that you may have been wrong could
leave you particularly vulnerable and open to getting hurt.
* Jupiter Conjunct Pluto
With Jupiter Conjunct Pluto you
try to enjoy life to the full. You have enormous drive and ambition to achieve
your goals, preferably as soon as possible, and are impatient with anything
that delays you. To others your goals may be unrealistic but you will strive
for them with amazing determination, and behind your ambition lies a powerful
faith in your abilities.
Saturn is the last planet in the
solar system that can be seen with the naked eye from the earth. As such,
together with the fact that it is bounded by a series of rings, Saturn
represents the boundaries of the individual.
After the limitless expansion of
Jupiter, Saturn in the birth chart represents boundaries and limitations. It is
the principle of structure and form. In the body, it is the skeleton, which
gives the body its structure, and the skin, which is the boundary to the
outside world. In the mind, it is the structure of our ego and our sense of
self which we seek to preserve from the impact of changes from within and from
the outside world. Saturn gives us the ability to endure setbacks and work with
discipline and patience toward well defined aims. It is the need for social
approval through some kind of tangible achievement. Whereas Jupiter brings
rewards and opportunities through what we might call good luck, Saturn brings
rewards and opportunities through hard work, limitation and self discipline.
The sign position of and aspects
to Saturn show how we seek to establish ourselves as individuals and find our
place in the social system of which we are a part. Any form or structure,
however, when placed in the light of the Sun tends to cast a shadow. The
position of Saturn in the chart therefore, shows where we find our
"shadow". It is here that we meet with our greatest sense of
inadequacy, lack of faith and inhibitions. Saturn shows where we are most
fearful, and hence most rigid; but if these fears can be met and overcome it is
the source of our greatest strength and a solid foundation from which to meet
* Saturn in Libra
Saturn is in the cardinal air
sign of Libra in your chart. The principle of form, structure and
responsibility operates in the field of intellectual and social interaction.
You have a capacity for concentrated and serious intellectual activity, Saturn
in an air sign denotes what could be termed the scientific mind. At the same
time, you may have a sense of mental and intellectual isolation. Libra
represents the principle of balance, harmony and relationship. With Saturn
here, a deep feeling of insecurity in relationships may cause you to avoid
issues or conflicts that you feel will upset conditions of harmony. Ultimately
you will have to learn how to handle responsibility in relationships, without
giving up too much of your own individuality and sense of purpose.
* Saturn in 1st House
The House position of Saturn
shows where we feel most restricted. In the 1st, the area of self-expression,
you may occasionally find it difficult to be open and spontaneous, fearful of
appearing foolish or being too presumptuous. On the other hand, you may
over-compensate by being overly friendly and chatty on the surface, but this
still masking an inner insecurity. Perhaps this feeling stems from your
childhood, where you were put down or criticised if you stepped out of line, or
expressed yourself openly.
As always with Saturn, what is a
source of insecurity and doubt early in life, can become the source of your
greatest strength in later life. You need to set yourself a goal, something
that you can achieve through your own efforts. As you slowly but surely
approach your goal, you'll begin to feel better about yourself and more
* Saturn Sextile Neptune
Saturn in sextile to Neptune
allows you to give structure to your dreams and aspirations. You're able to use
your imagination constructively for the benefit of yourself and others. You may
be instrumental in providing the practical foundation, and the organisation,
for turning the dreams of yourself and other people into a reality.
* Saturn Conjunct Pluto
Saturn in Conjunction with Pluto
is a powerful aspect that will affect the very foundations of your being.
There's a powerful need to have total control, .to be master of your own house.
You'll generally resist fiercely anyone or anything that poses a threat to your
There's also a tendency to
dominate those closest to you, based on the fear of losing them or being rejected.
However, you need to take care that this behaviour doesn't provoke the very
situations that you're afraid of. It's likely, however, that your life will go
through periodic changes in order to make room for new growth. The pain and
loss that you feel at such times can eventually make you a stronger person.
The root of your problems
probably lies in your childhood experiences, possibly a dominating and
unreasonable parent or an event where your whole sense of security was stripped
away leaving you feeling afraid and resentful, or both.
The Outer Planets
The planets beyond Saturn:-
Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, move through the signs so slowly that the sign
positions of these planets refer more to the generation of which we are a part,
rather than individual characteristics. It is the House position that shows
where we will meet with the principles expressed by these planets in our lives.
The aspects of these planets to the personal planets indicate our degree of
attunement to the principles they represent.
The trans-Saturnian planets
cannot be seen without the aid of a telescope. Therefore they represent
powerful forces that are beyond conscious control. These planets connect us
with forces and levels of reality beyond our experience as individual human
beings. They do this by breaking down the boundaries of the ego (symbolised by
Saturn), to allow the inflow of higher ideals and goals into our ego-centred
minds. This can often mean the total disruption or destruction of our existing
lives, goals, or outer and inner structures in order to make this possible.
Uranus is the first of the
trans-Saturnian planets. It cannot be seen with the naked eye and was
discovered in 1781 during the period of the American and French revolutions.
It's discovery was made possible by the invention of the telescope, a
development that has led to radical changes in our knowledge of the universe
and our place in it.
In the birth chart then, Uranus
represents the force for revolutionary change, the breaking from tradition, and
inventiveness and experimentation. As one of the three planets that cannot be
seen with the unaided eye, Uranus represents a force over which we have little
or no conscious control. On an individual level, Uranus indicates our degree of
independence and demand for personal freedom. If well aspected it gives us
originality and an attunement to truth that goes beyond the logic of Mercury.
If we refuse to express the energy of Uranus within us, preferring to cling to
the traditions and limitations of Saturn, then Uranus may manifest as
disruptions and sudden changes in our immediate environment, sometimes
disrupting our lives completely and forcing us to make needed changes. If the
energy of Uranus is expressed negatively, it can lead to wilfulness, impatience
and needless rebellion, the rebel without a cause.
The position of Uranus in the
chart shows where we most feel the need for freedom and independence and the
need to experiment with new ideas and ways of living. Conversely, it is the
area where we can cause the most disruption and needless change.
* Uranus in 3rd House
Uranus in the 3rd House of your
chart indicates that your perceptions are sharp. You are able to rapidly absorb
and analyse information from your environment, picking up subtle nuances and
apparently unimportant pieces of information that others may overlook
completely. With your own intuition filling in the gaps, you are able to
rapidly build up a complete picture of any situation in which you may find
yourself, and just as importantly, to convey this picture to others clearly and
intelligently. If you have to make snap decisions based on incomplete
information, your intuitive response usually turns out to be the right one.
Your mind is oriented toward the
future, with a desire to break free from past conditioning and inherited ways
of thinking, whether this is your own personal conditioning, or the prevailing
beliefs of your society. You have many original and inventive ideas, and the
ability to communicate these insights to others.
After Uranus comes Neptune, the
god of the sea. Whereas Uranus is the urge for individual freedom and
independence, Neptune is the urge to escape from our normal sense-bound state
of consciousness, and experience our unity with a different level of reality.
In the birth chart, Neptune
represents our higher ideals and our attunement to realities that lie beyond
that perceived by the senses. It is the realm of dreams and imagination and our
sense of being part of a whole which is greater than ourselves, the awareness
of a spiritual dimension to existence. Neptune represents the urge to transcend
our normal state of consciousness through meditation and mystical experience,
music, dreams and flights of the imagination, or through drugs (including
alcohol) which afford us a temporary escape from the mundane grind of living.
Neptune can be expressed as high ideals, altruism and spiritual values, or as
self destructive escapism and evasion of responsibilities. For most of us it is
a mixture of both.
The position of Neptune in the
chart shows where and how we seek to express these needs, and in what areas of
our lives we tend to seek an often impossible ideal.
* Neptune in 3rd House
Neptune in the 3rd House
indicates that you are in tune with your immediate environment to such an
extent that you can pick up on the "vibrations" around you. You often
get the feeling that you know what is going on beneath the surface, things that
are in the air but are not being spoken about or expressed, and you are usually
right. At other times, however, what you feel may be the result of your own
confused thinking, or unconscious assumptions, which makes it difficult to
always be certain about what you are picking up.
You have high ideals and believe,
perhaps, that as the individual is part of some greater whole, you should use
your own mind and intellect in the service of some high ideal or spiritual
* Neptune Sextile Pluto
This aspect between the two
outermost planets first occurred in 1942 and will remain in effect for the next
hundred years, although the sign positions of the planets will change, so
everyone born during this time will have it in their charts. This contact will
therefore affect everyone for the next hundred years and represents changes
taking place in the world's collective psyche. The keynote of this entire
period will be the complete transformation of our existing scientific,
religious and political belief systems.
Pluto is the outermost planet in
the solar system and therefore the slowest moving. At certain times however,
due to the high eccentricity of its orbit, it comes closer to the earth than
Neptune. This is the case at the present time and will be so until the end of
the century. At the same time it is passing through Scorpio, the sign that it
rules. This is a very critical period in world history, since Pluto represents
powerful forces of death and destruction or change and transformation, which
are now at their strongest. This can lead to destruction through nuclear war or
our pollution and exploitation of our planet. On the other hand it can lead to
the death of the present political and economical systems and the birth of new
political and economic systems and a transformation in international relations
and our relationship to our planet. By the time Pluto leaves Scorpio in 1999
the issue will probably be decided one way or the other.
In the individual birth chart,
Pluto represents the urge for power and control either over ourselves or
others. It is the need to penetrate beneath the surface of experience, to
reveal hidden motivations and repressed desires. The position of Pluto in the
chart indicates our capacity for self-regeneration or rebirth and our attitude
towards beginnings and endings and birth and death, either actual or symbolic.
Pluto can be expressed as the acceptance of our need for complete
transformation in some area of our life, and the courage to face our deepest
compulsions and hang-ups. Or, it can be expressed as the wilful manipulation of
others, ruthlessness and an infatuation with power.
* Pluto in 1st House
Pluto in your 1st House,
indicates that you have a powerful need to in some way re-mould your character
at certain points in your life. Pluto represents the force of change and
transformation, with this planet in the House of the personal self you will
periodically need to clear your life of certain structures that you feel are
limiting your growth, such as a bad relationship or job. If you do not recognise
or express the energy of Pluto within yourself, you may unconsciously act in
ways that provoke someone else into doing the job for you, so the other person
breaks up the relationship, or your boss gives you the sack. In these cases you
will see this as a crisis, until you are able to admit that this was what you
needed, and secretly desired.
You may have a deep distrust of
life, early experiences may have made you feel that there are destructive
forces in the world that are out to get you, feeling that life can be ruthless,
you may express a certain degree of ruthlessness in getting what you want. Fear
of your own mortality arises from a sense of the inevitability of
transformation and death. Death can occur in many forms, from the death of an
old way of life, an old way of thinking, to actual physical death, but all are
actually a prelude to a new birth or new beginning.
