This is a computerized natal chart and natal chart interpretation for Marilyn Monroe. If you know anything about her life, you can see from this report just how in-depth and insightful astrology can be, much more than sun sign astrology is. I did not write this, it is a report from my astrology software, which I’m allowed to reprint.
PART ONE: THE INNER YOU
In Part One of the interpretations you will read two sections concerned with your individual traits. The first section describes your ego (sun), emotional make-up (moon), learning and intellectual orientation (Mercury), relationships and sociability (Venus), and the expression and focus of your physical energy (Mars). The second section describes how well you deal internally with the external situations that you experience in life. Your capacity for happiness (Jupiter), ability to tolerate restrictions and frustrations (Saturn), how you are associated with or relate to new or innovative ideas and methods, and radical ideas and events that upset the status quo (Uranus), how you are associated with or affected by public ideals, morality, and spirituality (Neptune), and how you are associated with or affected by public policies toward crime, toward the power of government and industry, and toward exploration, development, conservation and distribution of natural resources (Pluto).
The sun rules will power and ego. It is the core of your potential and uniqueness as an individual; who you are and what you are about. It represents the main direction and focus you want your life to take, and your determination to accomplish what you set out to do. It is your personal honesty and integrity, and the ability to command respect and authority, to impress and influence others.
SUN in GEMINI
As the third sign of the zodiac, Gemini represents the third stage in the evolution of man and his place in the universe. Gemini goes beyond the Aries need for the raw energy of survival and the Taurus need to physically touch and experience the material world. In Gemini, it is the intellect that man needs to develop in order to understand the universe. This stage is concerned primarily with information-gathering and Geminis never seem to stop collecting it. They need to express ideas and share information with others, but what they do with their information is another matter. The mature Gemini becomes a serious scholar and careful researcher. The immature Gemini turns into a gossip and the proverbial “jack-of all-trades and master of none”.
Geminis readily adapt to change. This trait is a strength because it is a survival mechanism, and a weakness because it makes them vulnerable to the demands and influence of other people. The Twins are the astrological symbol of Gemini. Adopting a twin-like similarity to other people is easy for Geminis. They not only have a unique ability to understand what others are thinking, they also possess great cleverness for imitation. In this way they can maneuver themselves into many favorable positions. They can also lose sight of their own talents and ideas by being too willing and able to adopt the traits and immerse themselves in the personal situations of others. They tend to say what others want to hear instead of saying what they really think, or what they know to be the truth.
Geminis react intellectually to everything they experience in life. That is, before they take physical action, before they assess the practical worth of something, and before they sort out their true emotions, they try to analyze things objectively as a kind of mental exercise. Though it is generally not a true assessment, the intellectual orientation of Geminis can make it appear to others as though they are unfeeling or emotionally superficial.
Mercury, planet of the intellect (and communication in general) rules the sign Gemini. Those born with Sun in Gemini are talkative, quick witted, and have innate curiosity about everything. They keep themselves in a constant state of busyness, running here and there on errands or traveling from one city to another. Natural versatility and ever-changing interests give Geminis their multifaceted personalities. The eagerness and interest they have in what’s going on around them contributes to an appearance of youthfulness (both physical and psychological) that most of them manage to retain throughout life. They have to learn to concentrate on one thing at a time, or at least on what they know can be accomplished efficiently and well. Easily jumping from one subject to another, they forget that others are not so nimble. They often have to be reminded to slow down and let others catch up with what they’re talking about. They also have to be reminded to stop talking once in a while and listen. Sometimes they neglect to get all the facts before repeating information. Though they can be secretive about their personal affairs, they love to learn about everyone else. They enjoy mysteries and intrigue and don’t mind becoming involved in behind the scenes antics of one sort or another. Always wanting to know everything gives them quite a store of information which in turn, makes them more interesting to others. Add to that their cheerful, friendly dispositions, and it isn’t surprising that they get along so well in the world.
Since they are apt to spend more time talking than eating, many Geminis are able to stay fairly slim. Their body is usually very flexible and agile, and they enjoy gymnastics, bicycling, swimming, and other activities that keep them physically fit. Favorite sports are tennis, racquetball and similar games in which they can participate with a partner. As a rule, they are adept at tinkering with mechanical devices or doing repair work. Gemini talents also include design, interior decoration, arts and crafts, magic and illusion, and music.
Gemini colors are yellow and light blue. Vulnerable parts of the body are the arms, hands, fingers, lungs, and nervous system. Respiratory problems and various nervous conditions are common Gemini complaints. Agates are traditional Gemini birthstones. Appropriate to the multifaceted Gemini personality, this mineral is streaked with many colors. It may seem Gemini is scattered and thus weakened by the wide range of interests and abilities, but the steel-like hardness of agate is a reminder that the Gemini personality and character can be just as strong as it is varied. Gemini flowers include the lilac, azalea, and lily-of-the-valley.
The moon rules desire as opposed to ego, need as opposed to expediency or reason. It describes how you feel about yourself, how you handle relationships, and how you emotionally respond to situations and experiences. It describes the flow of your daily functions; physical, emotional, and mental. The moon represents your residence and domestic environment. It rules babies and young children, your mother and other important females in your life.
MOON in AQUARIUS
Those born with the moon in an Air sign usually respond to situations in a way they think should fit the facts, that is, they act in a way they think others expect them to act, or they imitate the same behavior as others. This gives them the appearance of emotional coolness or non-involvement. Before turning a situation into a physical experience, and before considering the stability or practicality of the thing, or even how they may really feel about it, they tend to do and say what seems appropriate as if it were not really happening to them. In spite of what appears to be their analytical detachment, most of them are loving and loyal in relationships. As lunar Air sign personalities, those with moon in Aquarius can be very sympathetic without being sentimental. Rarely beset with moodiness themselves, they often fail to pay attention to it in others, giving the impression they don’t care. Idealistic, optimistic and friendly, they are unbiased and liberal in their treatment of people in general. Highly social, they attract friends and acquaintances from all walks of life, social and cultural backgrounds. They have difficulty focusing attention on just one person. As far as they are concerned “the more the merrier”. Despite whatever eccentricity shows up in their personality, they are emotionally stable. Something in their emotional make-up gives them remarkable ability to calm those who are mentally disturbed or hysterical. When disappointed or unhappy, they focus on their activities and chores with such aplomb that others may not even realize they are upset.
Aquarius moon personalities do not want to be rushed or forced into making an emotional commitment. Once they make a commitment to an idea, project or relationship, they are tenaciously loyal and dedicated. Strong individualism and an eccentric nature can make marriage difficult. Marriage or raising a family rarely changes their established way of thinking and doing things. Though remaining independent in opinions and attitudes, more often than not, their attitudes and opinions turn out to be pretty traditional.
Women with Aquarius moon are often better friends and companions to their children than traditional nurturing mothers. Their interest in business or social affairs can distract them from ordinary domestic life. They may experience sorrow and disappointment in female relationships. Men with Aquarius moon display little jealousy or possessiveness in romantic relationships, a tendency that is sometimes interpreted by their partners as lack of love. Pursuing ideals and mental endeavors are often more important to them than amassing material wealth.
Mercury indicates mental outlook, intellectual endeavors, the way you think and communicate. It represents ideas, methods, and information. It rules your hands and thus your manual dexterity and mechanical skills. Mercury also describes transportation; that is, how you get where you’re going physically and mentally. Do you speed with all possible haste or amble along taking a few detours here and there?
MERCURY in GEMINI
Individuals with Mercury in Gemini have a greater-than-average mental orientation. They deal with thoughts and ideas rather than feelings and attitudes. Ideas and thoughts flow with amazing rapidity but they may lack concentration. The slightest distraction can knock out their line of thinking and send them off in entirely new directions. In Gemini, Mercury indicates originality of thought and persuasive powers of articulation. However, these individuals can lack depth of perception and have no patience for detailed analysis. All areas of communication attract them. They are apt to have quick and merry wits, musical talent, mechanical skills, and the ability to mimic the characteristics of others. They like to keep busy (physically as well as mentally), constantly on the go and involved with a myriad of errands and projects all at the same time. Their manner of learning and getting from place to place is liable to be erratic and unpredictable.
Venus rules your social attitudes and behavior, and your aesthetic tastes and inclinations. It is female relationships and social interactions at every level. Venus indicates your values. It describes romance, marriage and other partnerships, capacity for humor, and the pursuit of pleasure.
VENUS in ARIES Individuals with natal Venus in Aries rush to enthusiastically embrace relationships of all kinds. They enjoy having fun and some of their pursuits may involve an element of risk. Their passionate eagerness can be inspiring and contagious, but a penchant for undue haste sometimes results in being rude. The combative nature of Aries also means they can be too aggressive in forcing their attentions or affections on others. Their social instincts are friendly and, most of the time, attractively uncomplicated. Unwilling to take the necessary time to make proper evaluations, they are not very discriminating in their values and relationships. This is something, however, that can be overcome with maturity and guidance. They are not likely to seek a peaceful or mundane existence, preferring to be active and among people to find their inspiration.
Mars rules physical energy and efforts. It describes the strength and direction of the physical force that drives your ego, fires your emotions, and encourages your mental endeavors and communicative skills. It describes male relationships and associations, risk-taking inclinations, and the physical challenges you are likely to encounter.
MARS in PISCES
The energy of those with Mars in Pisces is highly influenced by their emotional state and, too often, at the mercy of the environment in which they operate. They can easily be inspired as well as inspiring, and many possess outstanding creative and artistic talent. Their instinctive reactions are keen, as is their power of turning abstract concepts into reality. The problem they invariably face is that they find it difficult to accomplish things either because they are too lazy, or lack the necessary confidence to act. As a result, they can waste their talents and skills for want of a good push to get started. Many develop an inner strength that is remarkable. As if to confront potential physical weakness, they engage in high-risk activities.
Jupiter rules your potential for growth and expansion on many levels; physical, intellectual, spiritual, cultural, and the accumulation of material assets, power, and status. It describes your optimism and aspirations. It represents your father and his position in society.
JUPITER in AQUARIUS
Individuals with natal Jupiter in Aquarius can operate efficiently within traditional ideas and institutions, while at the same time be receptive to ideas and activities which seem fantastic or bizarre to other people. Indeed, they are apt to experience their greatest personal progress and growth by successfully dealing with situations that involve rebelling against tradition or the established order. These individuals are likely to possess extremely broad-minded social attitudes. They can be effective catalysts within various organizations and groups.
Saturn rules responsibilities, restrictions and limitations you are apt to encounter, and the lessons you must learn in life. It does not deny or diminish imagination, inspiration, spirituality, and good fortune but it does demand that these things be given structure and meaning.
SATURN in SCORPIO
Individuals with Saturn in Scorpio encounter responsibility and restriction involving payment of debts of one kind or another. The kind of debts they have are determined by other factors in their natal chart, but they may be of an emotional, physical, financial, or moral nature. The intensity associated with Scorpio and the rigidity of Saturn indicate confrontation with limitations that are imposed by the presence of too much control in some area of their lives, or manipulation in order to gain control.
Uranus rules personal as well as societal freedom. It indicates originality of thought and expression. In society it rules radical ideas and people as well as revolutionary events that upset established structures. Uranus takes approximately seven years to transit one sign, taking about 84 years to complete all twelve signs. Since groups of people with Uranus in the same sign are separated by 84 years, the influence of this planet in a sign is generational. The personal implications of Uranus in your life are described by its house position and the aspects it makes with other planets in your natal chart. It describes areas of unpredictability, and where you or your life style may be different than those around you. It relates to the unusual or unique. Friends and associations to which you belong are also indicated, as is your potential involvement with science and technology, computers, and the media.
URANUS in PISCES
The generation of individuals born with natal Uranus in Pisces are more innovative and creative. The truly different and the truly weird are commonplace manifestations of their talents and endeavors. They also contribute concepts and methods that are undeniably far-sighted and ingenious.
Neptune rules those who are oppressed or abandoned; the misfits of society. On a higher level it rules visionaries, and those who are glamorous and charismatic. It represents spirituality, mysticism, and ideals. Neptune is in one sign for approximately thirteen years, taking about 164 years to complete its cycle through all twelve signs. Since 164 years separate people born during its transit of one sign and those born when it returns, Neptune’s significance in any sign is described as generational or historical. On a personal level, Neptune’s house position and the aspects it makes with other planets in your natal chart will describe spirituality, abstract thinking, illusion, disillusionment, and other areas of your life where things aren’t always what they seem. It rules derangement, guilt, persecution, and describes the potential for experiences related to confinement, abandonment, and addiction or physical intolerance to drugs.
NEPTUNE in LEO
The last period of Neptune in Leo was 1914-1929. Leo rules monarchy, entertainment and art. The Russian monarchy ended, largely because it refused (in typical Neptunian fashion) to deal with the troubled conditions that existed in that country. The movie industry saw its greatest growth and development. The avant-garde nature of Leo combined with Neptune produced the Dada artistic and literary movement which in turn, led to surrealism.
Pluto takes approximately 248 years to make one cycle through all twelve signs. The period Pluto spends in each sign can vary from twelve years to thirty two years due to the eccentricity of its orbit. Like atomic energy (a force ruled by Pluto), the presence and direction of Pluto’s energy are never obvious until it is used. Pluto’s influence in any sign is interpreted as generational or historical. In your personal life, Pluto’s significance is interpreted from its house position and the aspects it makes to other natal planets in your horoscope. Pluto rules intense energy, and describes the areas in which you consciously or subconsciously seek to exercise power or control. Pluto is also linked to your karmic responsibility, and in this respect, it describes the areas where you must gain the deepest level of understanding.
PLUTO in CANCER Pluto’s last period in Cancer was 1912-1939. Cancer rules women and the family. During the 20’s the attitudes and roles of women were transformed. They demanded greater freedom in society and release from the drudgery of domestic chores. As a result of the increasing number of women seeking employment outside of the home, family life also changed dramatically.
PART TWO: THE OUTER YOU
In Part Two you will read about the twelve houses of the horoscope. The houses represent areas of life in which you operate on a daily basis. You will read descriptions of how you handle the circumstances you encounter in each of these areas, according to your nature, personality and other traits as they are outlined in Part One.
The first house and the sign that rules the first house, which is also known as the Ascendant or Rising sign, describes your outer personality and physical attributes. To some extent it also describes your health and the type of illnesses you may experience.
A Leo Ascendant indicates individuals who are likely to have strong physiques and lots of physical stamina. They are very stubborn and find it extremely difficult to break undesirable habits and behavior patterns. However, their tenacity and stamina can also be wonderful assets. When they get involved in something, they hang on long after everyone else runs out of steam, and they inspire others with their devotion to ideals and principles.
Leo indicates energy and enthusiasm. Once motivated, they seldom hesitate to act. In spite of their energy and enthusiasm however, they can also be inclined to physical laziness. Their natural enthusiasm is responsible for overabundance and a tendency to overestimate everything. When buying various personal items, for example, they often acquire far more than they need. Though often rash and hasty, their passions are sincere.
Leo is ruled by the sun, ruler of willpower and egotistical drives. It indicates the conscious or subconscious need to dominate, especially in those with more aggressive personalities. They want to have the last word in everything, and may come to believe their opinion is the only one worth considering. The negative potential for Leo Ascendant individuals is evidenced in those whose ego-driven personalities turn them into manipulative, power-oriented demagogues. Though most Leo Ascendant individuals are apt to be outgoing, they are not necessarily aggressive or loudly gregarious. Their personalities will be greatly influenced by the nature and strength of their willpower and ego involvement. If the willpower and ego are not strong, then neither is the personality apt to be assertive. No matter what the rest of the world may think of them, it is meaningless compared to what they think of themselves. Intense self-absorption makes it hard to accept guidance from others, and they may feel taking or asking for advice from others is a sign of weakness. They enjoy associating with others who make them appear at their best. They have great generosity, and their warm, friendly approach wins many friends, as well as inspires the envy of others with less popular personalities. Life will rarely be a routine existence.
They are apt to be very creative with special talent or ability in art, music, or the entertainment and communication industries. Overwork, anxiety, heart problems, lower back pains, and ailments connected with overindulgence are their most likely physical complaints.
NEPTUNE in 1st HOUSE
Neptune in the first house indicates those with very little understanding of how their personality, looks, and behavior affects others. Neptune in the first house may add an element of glamor or mystery to their personality and/or appearance, but this is not certain. They may, for example, photograph so well that they look much better on film than in reality, or their likeness on film is so poor that they hate to be photographed. Neptune’s influence includes those who are prone to anxiety, especially about their health or appearance. Self-control, never an easy task for these individuals, is extremely important to develop if they wish to avoid hypochondria, addiction to habit-forming substances, or any of the emotional and physical ills that befall those who lack self discipline. Consciously or subconsciously they give an impression of such vulnerability that others instinctively want to protect them, sometimes going to great lengths to avoid hurting their feelings. They harbor feelings of abandonment. No matter how many people surround them, they tend to feel left behind or unwanted. They have a tendency to use guilt as a weapon for eliciting the affections and cooperation of others, but they are also apt to be the victims of others who use the same ploy. In spite of their apparent sensitivity, these individuals are definitely survivors. They possess enormous strength that can take others by surprise. The positive potential of Neptune includes those who are very compassionate toward others. They may also be very spiritual, able to clearly see and appreciate the beauty of the soul. Whether or not it takes the form of spirituality, these individuals can inspire others to a remarkable degree. There is danger, however, that they will insist others accept their ideals.
The second house describes material assets, how you handle monetary income, and the potential ways it may be earned. It also indicates the values and priorities you establish throughout life.
VIRGO on 2nd HOUSE
Virgo ruling the second house indicates those who want to receive material, or at least some sort of tangible benefits from their ideas and thoughts. They want to be assured their ideas and thoughts have real value and many of them are apt to earn income from such fields as education, communication, writing, publishing, or through travel and transportation. Virgo’s influence is also an indication they want to make the best use of income and other assets. They may also have tendencies to be critical in some way of their income. Under Virgo’s influence many of these individuals keep track of every penny. The negative potential can mean the opposite, and the willingness or ability of these individuals to efficiently handle income is negligible. Virgo’s influence suggests those who are adept at picking up on the priorities and value systems of other people. Knowing what others find important makes many of them opportunists, though it doesn’t necessarily mean they will manipulate or exploit others.
The third house describes your mental state, intellectual orientation, self-expression and communication, early education, mechanical dexterity and skills, immediate environment (neighborhood), and siblings. It indicates physical actions, and transportation, especially within your immediate environment. To a certain extent the third house also describes the job or health of your father.
LIBRA on 3rd HOUSE
Libra ruling the third house suggests those who are very sociable within their immediate environment. They will attempt to establish good relations with neighbors and actively participate in community projects, especially if they are invited to do so. They have close, or at least very cordial relationships with siblings and there is likely to be much visiting back and forth with each other. The negative potential can mean the opposite, and these individuals intentionally or unintentionally, get involved in neighborhood disagreements or may be antagonistic or aloof from neighbors as well as siblings. It may indicate a lack of siblings or that they will live in remote areas where there are no immediate neighbors. The influence of Libra on the third house suggests skills in the art of diplomacy and strategic planning. Their primary schooling is usually the place where they easily make friends, one of whom they may marry or with whom they might have a business partnership. Another possibility is that their marriage or business partners are found among those who live in the same neighborhood.
The fourth house describes your residence, domestic environment, and family members, especially your mother. It indicates the beginning as well as the end of various cycles in your life.
SCORPIO on 4th HOUSE
Scorpio ruling the fourth house indicates those who are apt to experience some profound trauma in childhood, usually the death of someone in the family or some form of physical or mental abuse by a family member that deeply affects how they view their own lives as adults. Whatever may have actually happened or how they reacted at the time, the situation ultimately gave them a sense they had no control over things. For this reason, they have difficulty as adults in relinquishing any control over their lives. This makes many of them reluctant to marry, or at least makes it hard to stay married to spouses who insist on having a definite input concerning domestic and family arrangements. The potential of Scorpio’s influence on the fourth house also implies they will not experience the full realization of latent energies until later in life. There will be definite periods (especially after the age of thirty) that require complete new beginnings, though other factors will influence the potential outcome of endeavors to start over. They may or may not attempt to escape their childhood home or events, but somehow manage to keep returning to them again and again.
SATURN in 4th HOUSE
Saturn in the fourth house can mean those who are deprived of a parent early in life. It also suggests austerity and strictness that may apply to the personality of one or both parents, to the emotional content of their home, or to physical aspects of their surroundings. Whatever their actual childhood circumstance or family history may be, these individuals harbor great concerns about it. As adults they may be strict and inflexible in their own domestic environment, or be so negative as to dismiss any notion of establishing a home or family. Saturn’s positive influence includes those who enjoy very stable family relationships. It also indicates those who live their entire life in the same house or hometown. The negative potential includes those who are homebound, unable through illness or disease to leave their residence. How these individuals learn to handle any hardships related to home and family is an important key to their happiness and success.
SATURN trine URANUS
Saturn trine Uranus is a generational aspect with a fortunate influence that usually indicates conditions in which society enjoys a healthy economy, a bullish stock market, and relatively low unemployment. Even underdeveloped nations may expect some benefit from this aspect. Individuals born in this generation are likely to personally benefit in some way from these positive conditions in society.
SATURN square NEPTUNE
Saturn square Neptune is a generational aspect that implies general laxity toward structure and organization. Noncommittal attitudes prevail just when strong commitments are necessary. Bad timing and a tendency to focus on the wrong issues result in lack of accomplishment and a feeling that something is wrong, but no idea of how to correct the situation. Individuals born in this generation may or may not have a tough time with rules and regulations but may have to deal with those who do.
The fifth house describes your creative talent and imaginative powers, capacity for enjoyment and the pursuit of pleasure, romance, children, and speculative ventures.
SAGITTARIUS on 5th HOUSE
Sagittarius ruling the fifth house indicates those with a strong sense of their own creative spirits. It is more than abundant expressions of artistic talent or vivid imagination since they may be lacking in these traits. Nor is this necessarily an indication of the procreation of many children since they may fail to produce offspring. Sagittarius influencing the fifth house does indicate those who want to feel that they are somehow set apart from the world while yet still a part of it, to associate themselves with higher spiritual or intellectual levels. However, there is also the potential that they possess generous, risk-taking spirits, merry temperaments, and are certainly not above the sincere enjoyment of delights they are offered in the physical world. The negative potential includes the possibility of disappointment or failure in romantic and speculative ventures. They can attribute the responsibility for some of these failures to their own immaturity and self-indulgence. Though they may or may not have children of their own, their attitude toward youngsters is warm and giving. They are also apt to be animal lovers.
The sixth house describes your job, daily responsibilities (paid and unpaid), and those who work for or with you. It also represents your health, and physical fitness.
CAPRICORN on 6th HOUSE
Capricorn ruling the sixth house indicates potential for heavy responsibilities connected with work and/or health. These individuals may be called upon to make total, unflinching commitments. Those whose individual nature is repelled by the idea of accepting work and tiresome responsibilities will suffer from their unwillingness. It is only by putting forth their very best and consistent efforts that progress is made, not only in their work, but also in terms of their health, personal growth and maturity as individuals. Whatever their job happens to be, it is better if it consists of a definite structure, that is, it includes definite prescribed methods and organization for accomplishing assigned tasks. Their co-workers may be few or they may even work alone. Capricorn’s influence also implies job responsibilities will entail supervision of co-workers or at least the need to assist them. Illnesses may be few, but are likely to be lingering or of a chronic nature. There may be little opportunity or desire for pets, but if they do have pets, they are responsible, loving owners.
The seventh house relates to marriage and partnership or joint ventures of any kind. It describes how you interact with people and how others tend to regard you. The seventh house is associated with legal matters, negotiations, contracts, and all open confrontations, pleasant as well as adversarial.
AQUARIUS on 7th HOUSE
Many who have Aquarius ruling the seventh house and still manage to accomplish a long and stable marriage can count themselves fortunate since the influence of Aquarius here rarely allows such an arrangement. There is strong potential for more than one marriage or, no marriage at all due to the need for personal freedom. Marriage may be abruptly terminated with no warning, or it can occur suddenly and unexpectedly. Another implication is that there is something unusual or unorthodox about their marriages or marriage partners, or at least what may be thought of as unusual in their particular group or society. There is apt to be something about these individuals that makes them appear unusual or different to others, and they can expect to encounter some pretty strange people whenever they are out in public. They are apt to have the talent for making strangers feel so comfortable they feel they have known these individuals forever. The income of their marriage partners may be derived in areas that deal with those who are ill, handicapped or minorities. Other sources of their income may involve art, dancing, religion, charitable institutions, or areas that involve water, chemistry, photography, or maritime industries.
MOON in 7th HOUSE
Moon in the seventh house indicates those who are apt to be the beneficiaries of assistance from others, whether or not they have asked for such assistance. They engender strong protective or nurturing instincts in others, and may achieve success solely through the help they receive. The moon’s influence in the seventh house is indicative of the emotional nature of the marriage and marriage partner. A man with seventh house moon, for example, will usually select a wife who physically resembles or exhibits characteristics of his mother. He may marry a very young woman, or a woman willing to play the role of mother as well as wife to him. A woman with moon in the seventh house exhibits strong emotional identification with her husband. She is apt to be dominated in marriage, either by marrying a man with forceful nature, or by the authority or status her husband represents. Even if they divorce, there is the potential she will have difficulty finding psychological release from the failed marriage.
MOON conjunct JUPITER
Moon conjunct Jupiter indicates those with enhanced, and in some cases, excessive emotions and desires. Sometimes a too high opinion of themselves can spoil their wonderful sense of humor and compassionate natures, but as a rule, these individuals are very generous with the capacity to enjoy the best things in life. They have respect for knowledge and many develop into serious scholars while others have a tendency to become pseudo intellectual.
MOON square SATURN
Outward success is nearly always possible for those with Moon square Saturn, but it isn’t easy; and more often than not, they are not satisfied after it is achieved. Lack of emotional flexibility can be one of the impediments to being truly happy. They may be guilty of always trying to get around rules and regulations, though they are not above imposing them on others. There may be reticence or awkwardness when expressing their feelings. These are individuals who learn from their mistakes and possess the capability of developing organization and patience which are the keys to phenomenal success.
MOON opposite NEPTUNE
Moon opposite Neptune indicates that whatever success these individuals gain in other areas, their emotional lives can end up in quicksand; and no matter how otherwise intelligent they are, they may never quite understand how they got in such situations. Compassionate and often too easily influenced by others for their own good, they can never seem to get themselves on solid emotional footing. Strength of character and other factors in their personalities can soften some of the negativity connected with this aspect.
JUPITER in 7th HOUSE
Jupiter in the seventh house indicates those whose marriage and business partnerships require a certain amount of independence. Their alliances cannot be bogged down with possessiveness or emotional dependency. Marriage, joint ventures, and partnership with others is likely to broaden their intellectual horizon, increase their economic or social status, and expand their life-style. Their marriage or business partner may tend to propose big ideas and grandiose schemes, and/or be physically above average in size. These individuals may be regarded by others as scholarly, influential, generous, or spiritual, sometimes without much justification for such opinions. Females with seventh house Jupiter often marry men that resemble or characterize their father. The negative potential includes those who marry solely to improve their wealth or status, and those who take their partner too much for granted.
JUPITER square SATURN
Jupiter square Saturn is a generational aspect that implies a generation devoted to forcing thoughts and ideas on the rest of society. Most of these ideas are accepted simply because this generation has the energy and perseverance to mount ideological campaigns. They do not accept foolish or faddish thinking and behavioral patterns. They want to make substantial contributions to the world community.
JUPITER opposite NEPTUNE
Jupiter opposite Neptune implies a generation confronted with either the disintegration of social, political, or religious principles, or extreme fanaticism regarding these societal institutions. Whatever happens is sure to be followed with disillusion and sorrow. They may or may not experience this in their private lives, but will be influenced by its effect on society in general.
The eighth house is related to taxes, debt, death, legacies, and the income you receive through marriage or business partner(s). It describes your resourcefulness, and your ability to develop and use material assets as well as personal skills and abilities. The eighth house also indicates sexual attitudes and behavior.
PISCES on 8th HOUSE
Pisces ruling the eighth house indicates those who have difficulty collecting what is owed to them. When lending money or granting favors, it should be with the idea of never realizing a return on their investment. Another potential is that they may have a tendency to distort facts regarding taxes or insurance matters, or may be falsely accused of such practices. The negative potential includes the possibility of being cheated of inheritance, or it may be considerably eroded before they can receive it. Mental disorders, physical disabilities or sensitivity to drugs may exist in the genetic makeup of their families. On the positive side, they may also inherit keen intellects, intuition, and artistic talent. There may be erosion or loss of the assets of their marriage or business partners. The income of their spouses as well as that of siblings, may be derived through maritime industries, religion, medicine, photography, psychology, or areas that involve the feet or that deal with the institutionalized, disabled, or minorities. A sibling may suffer from physical or mental disability, hypochondria, hard to diagnose illness, or drug or alcohol abuse.
MARS in 8th HOUSE
Mars in the eighth house indicates those with intense energy and stamina. Where they focus their energy is not determined solely by Mars in the eighth house, but there is likely to be a certain aggressiveness and concentrated energy connected with almost everything they do. They are sure to have very specific desires and no hesitation about trying to gratify them. They may be secretive or circumspect in their movements and activities, or give that kind of impression. The negative potential includes those who are deeply possessive or vengeful. The influence of Mars suggests an active sex life, intense feelings concerning sexual matters and toward the opposite sex. Many of these individuals develop remarkable ability to understand sexuality from a psychological as well as physical point of view, and to do research or counseling in this field. They are usually physically resourceful, and have talent for doing more than one thing extremely well. They are likely to possess mechanical and/or artistic skills that are especially valuable in renovation and remodeling.
MARS trine SATURN
Those with Mars trine Saturn are apt to have the good fortune to be taken care of or given valuable assistance by older people or those in authority. Saturn’s influence is rarely subtle and attempts at self promotion may be transparent, but the implication here is that their ploys are usually tolerated. This is a survival aspect and no matter the hardships imposed, these individuals usually manage to cope better than most.
MARS trine PLUTO
Mars trine Pluto indicates those with a strong sense of what they like and dislike and just as strong an inclination to get what they want. There are notable passions as well as clear ability to separate what is relevant and important from that which is irrelevant and should be abandoned. They are fortunate to have valuable resources, material and non-material, and to know how to make use of them.
URANUS in 8th HOUSE
Uranus in the eighth house indicates those who seek to understand the deeper mysteries of life and death. They want to know where they, as an individual, fit into the universal landscape. These individuals may have unpredictable or unorthodox attitudes and behavior when it comes to sex. They can be quite rigid when prevailing notions accommodate laxity in sexual behavior. On the other hand, they can become quite liberal when society imposes too many restrictions. Whatever their stated views, they are apt to have keen interest in sex, and may indulge in or deal in some way with unorthodox sexual encounters. Their marriage partner’s income is vulnerable to sudden change. Their partner’s income may be earned in some unusual or unorthodox line of work, or derived from a more conventional job that involves computers, communications, medicine, social services, or international finance. The influence of Uranus suggests those who may devise ingenious methods for handling debt, taxes, and insurance. They may receive an unusual or unexpected legacy.
The ninth house describes higher education, advanced training, publishing, publicity, advertising, politics, foreign travel, foreign studies, religious and philosophical views and activities, and cultural pursuits. It relates to court decisions, a second marriage, and in-laws. To a certain extent the ninth house also describes the job or health of your mother.
ARIES on 9th HOUSE
Aries ruling the ninth house indicates individuals who are apt to concentrate much of their energy and vitality on travel or the pursuit of higher education or specialized training. Politics, sports, philosophy, religion, sociology, theater, publishing, foreign studies or foreign trade are other possible areas that attract their attention and participation. If not involved professionally, they may nevertheless avidly pursue interest in one of these fields. Aries also indicates they may be in businesses that involve direct mail, advertising, or broadcasting. Home may or may not be where their hearts are, but not necessarily where their myriad of busy interests often lead. Negative possibilities connected with Aries on the ninth house include individuals who develop unrealistic idealism, or become victims of fanaticism. It also signals the potential for problems connected with attaining advanced degrees, the tendency to become overeducated, unfavorable court decisions, or disagreements with in-laws.
VENUS in 9th HOUSE
Venus in the ninth house indicates those who are culturally oriented, spiritually inspired, and philosophically inclined. They often develop idealistic notions regarding social structures. However, if there are no negative factors in their personality or background to interfere, most of them strike a balance between their ideals and practical reality. They like to think of themselves as citizens of the world, and indeed, they often fit this description. Many of them seek positions in writing, broadcasting, advertising, and higher education. The influence of Venus suggests potential for romance, marriage, partnership and joint ventures in foreign countries or with those of a different nationality or race. The negative potential can mean anti-social attitudes, difficulty with in-laws, and unfavorable court judgments. It also implies difficulty obtaining advanced degrees and specialized training.
VENUS sextile JUPITER
Venus sextile Jupiter indicates those apt to have artistic, promotional or journalistic talent. They may also have opportunities to get ahead by applying their talents in advertising, promotion, broadcasting, or teaching. These individuals develop a number of intelligence sources in order to keep themselves on top of things at work as well as what’s going on in other areas. They are often successful in creating opportunities for others as well as themselves.
VENUS trine NEPTUNE
Venus trine Neptune indicates those likely to be very fortunate in their social contacts. If other factors in their personalities or backgrounds do not interfere, they are caring, compassionate individuals who go to great lengths to make others comfortable. Many of them possess musical talent, or artistic and design skills. They tend to form relationships that sometimes become so close as to be almost psychic.
The tenth house describes your career and other long-range goals, public reputation, superiors and those in authority. It also relates to your father and his influence in your life.
TAURUS on 10th HOUSE
Taurus ruling the tenth house indicates the likelihood of individuals who want to pursue careers that are worthwhile. Though monetary gain may certainly be a factor in their choices of direction in life, it is by no means the only one. They want whatever they go after and the things they achieve to be solid and enduring. If money is not a primary necessity or goal, they may be just as happy to work long and hard on a volunteer basis in order to achieve long range goals they believe are worthy of their time and attention. Possible career choices include art, music, banking, investment and finance, real estate, agriculture, architecture, landscaping and conservation. Flowers, leather, jewelry, and wood (trees) are things that may also be related to what they are destined to do. Unless there are negative factors in their background, the influence of Taurus suggests stable and sociable parental relationships, and fathers who may be especially handsome or have artistic talent.
SUN in 10th HOUSE
Sun in the tenth house indicates those who possess a strong ego that must find public expression. Very few of these individuals are likely to be satisfied with staying home. Those who choose such a life-style or are forced into it, are apt to be miserable. Even if their main focus is home and family, sooner or later, they feel the need to accomplish their personal goals through a career or other activities. The father is emphasized, and these individuals feel his influence more than most. Their accomplishments may be the direct result of his help, or have been motivated by the lack of it. They may bear a strong physical resemblance to the father. These individuals seek to attain public positions. They are apt to work for themselves or occupy an elevated position in the companies that employ them.
SUN trine MOON
Sun trine Moon indicates individuals apt to be pretty well satisfied with themselves. This aspect is not a certain indication they will have an outward tendency for self-promotion, and for some, it may be more about having an inner contentment that helps them stand up to the trials of rejection and other personal disappointments in life. They have a strong (or perhaps just lucky) life force and energy when survival becomes the issue.
SUN conjunct MERCURY
These individuals are apt to be very subjective in their opinions and ideas. Unless they make concerted efforts, their receptiveness to learning is going to stay primarily limited to their self-interests, which in turn limits their growth and progress as individuals. It is hard to separate their own ideas from others since consciously or subconsciously their egos have a tendency to appropriate everything. If natal Mercury is in a different sign than natal Sun, there is less chance of ego involvement and more mental receptiveness.
MERCURY in 10th HOUSE
Mercury in the tenth house indicates individuals who want their thoughts and ideas conveyed to an audience. Even if they do not seek public attention for themselves, they want a public forum for their ideas, or in which to put these ideas into practice. They may write speeches for others, or become city planners and engineers. Others enjoy mental pursuits in public places such as chess matches in the park or writing letters to the editors of newspapers. There is also the potential for more than one career, or a dual-natured quality connected with their work. The negative potential of this Mercury house position includes difficulty in communicating with the father or other authority figures, and problems establishing their own authority. Mercury’s influence in the tenth house is an indication of writers, teachers, public speakers, or politicians. Their career or profession may demand a great deal of traveling, or involve transportation or networking.
The eleventh house rules friendships, organizations to which you belong, and income derived from self-employment or career (as opposed to wages earned from a job). It relates to the role you play in the lives of others as child, parent, lover, spouse, friend, social or business associate. The eleventh house also describes your hopes and aspirations and capacity for happiness.
GEMINI on 11th HOUSE
Gemini ruling the eleventh house indicates individuals who are likely to need and use their friends as sounding boards and inspiration for their thoughts and ideas. They are also apt to get heavily involved in various fraternal associations and societies, playing an active role by holding office or serving on various committees. They are usually the ones who write for or publish newsletters or communications put out by the organizations to which they belong. They are often close friends with their siblings. The negative potential includes individuals who become too involved with gossip and superficial friendships or are the victims of such situations. The influence of Gemini suggests that their friends include twins. Friendships are also likely among educators, writers, salespeople, mechanics, secretaries, researchers, and those involved with computers. These individuals also enjoy pen pal friendships. There is a tendency to have more acquaintances than real friends, which may or may not have to do with the fact that many of the contacts they form are based on mental rapport rather than emotional commitment.
PLUTO in 11th HOUSE
Pluto in the eleventh house indicates those whose central theme in life is analyzing what makes them happy. To accommodate what may be an intense desire to find true happiness, they make a completely new beginning with new friends and if possible, in a new environment. The fresh start they attempt may be successful, but if it merely represents a desire to run away from unresolved problems or unsatisfactory relationships, they are certain to fail. By choice or circumstance there may be secrecy and hidden control or manipulation related to the role they play in the lives of others, as child, parent, sibling, lover, spouse, or friend. Understanding the necessity of directing energy away from the self and toward a relationship or group effort, being able to work as part of a group instead of dominating it, and focusing on common goals rather than emphasizing differences are what give ultimate influence and power to those with an eleventh house Pluto.
The twelfth house describes the private and hidden side of life; your subconscious mind, dreams, the past, and those who wish you harm or work against your interests. The twelfth house relates to sorrow, disappointment, loss, solitude or confinement, hidden fears and worry. It also has connection with the job or health of your marriage or business partner.
CANCER on 12th HOUSE Cancer ruling the twelfth house indicates the likelihood of individuals who develop a strong interest in the occult, the arcane, the subconscious, and planes of existence beyond physical reality. However, given the strong emotionalism associated with the influence of Cancer there is also danger that their dealings with such matters can become extreme or get out of hand in some way. They can become their own worst enemy by developing the conscious or subconscious idea there is loss connected with emotional commitment. There is also potential they will become victims of the past by refusing to accept that though the past can teach valuable lessons, it cannot be erased. In any event, they may often be reminded of the past by events connected with it or people from their past who keep returning. Whether they rise above such thoughts or become victims of their own emotions, is indicated by other aspects in the rest of their natal charts. It is almost certain that at one time or another, they will experience secret or clandestine attachments. They are apt to have strong intuitive powers, though it would be a mistake were they to rely on such skills to function consistently.
