Vertex in the Signs and in Aspect
Vertex in Aries
You are expected to pick up the reins of leadership, initiate new directions,
take a decisive stand, overcome inhibitions to activate personal drive, learn
courage, and conquer fears.
Doing these things may satisfy a fundamental need for expression that you are
psychologically ready to fulfill. It can challenge your ability to lead,
troubleshoot, or innovate, and it can bring abilities forward from your
unconscious that you were not aware of. You can gain awareness of personal
courage and self-identity as well.
Not accomplishing these things may put the initiative into anotherís hands or
leave you unfulfilled because you have compromised or fallen into tempting
mediocrity. It is also possible that you will develop a gap in your personality
because of a psychologically damaging identity complex.
Vertex in Taurus
You are expected to complete something already set in motion. Others expect you
to become self-sustaining and self-supporting, to deal with security problems,
and to support the arts in some way. People want you to deal with the world on a
Accomplishing these things may create a solution for a severe emotional or
material lack. You outgrow dependency on others and manage your own affairs.
Not doing so may keep you from attaining the self-esteem that you could gain
from being self-sufficient. You may also feel social or emotional indebtedness.
Vertex in Gemini
You are expected to bring your ability to communicate or write to the fore, and
to use hard-core facts to clarify situations. People expect you to come up with
ideas and present them clearly, speak, write, or instruct, debate your own view
point, and gain a position as a spokesperson.
Doing these things may improve your ability to get your ideas across to others
because you learn to choose your words carefully and have the facts to back them
up. You also gain the confidence to speak out because you have developed
communication skills and maintained a youthful curiosity. In short, you are well
prepared with facts when tested.
Not developing these skills allows you to generalize or go off on a tangent,
losing the point you are trying to make. You may avoid research and fail to
achieve mental flexibility and clarity, or you may get hung up on a single goal
instead of developing the diversity you need.
Vertex in Cancer
You are expected to deal with the public or in the public interest, handle the
emotional factors in situations, and learn to deal with women or public figures.
People also anticipate your ability to spot trends and accept a background or
parental role, and to acknowledge the emotional side of your nature.
Doing these things may help you to develop your nurturing qualities and to
recognize your own dependency needs as legitimate concerns in your life. You may
also discover a capacity to play the parent role to the world.
Not accomplishing these things may put you at the mercy of other peopleís
emotions. Situations become distorted and conflicts develop with people who feel
you have let them down. You may also give in to the temptation to suppress your
Vertex in Leo
You are expected to become an individual and not just a member of the group, and
to project your own emotions in a special relationship instead of maintaining
emotional separation. People expect you to be responsible for teaching, working
on an entertainment project, or dealing with young people or children. You also
should acknowledge and accept your need for admiration.
In doing these things, you may become aware of your own individuality or
creative expression. You give outer expression to the affectionate, creative
side of your nature. You strengthen your own ego by helping other people to
develop theirs, and you instill confidence and self-worth in those around you
through your magnetism and dignity.
Not accomplishing these tasks may lead to a psychologically crippling
ego-complex or create conflict within you. You could suffer from the same
impersonal treatment you sometimes indulge in.
Vertex in Virgo
You are expected to use your practical insights and your ability to discover
flaws. People also want you to provide service, compile material for practical
use, and supply work details. You should develop your discriminating faculties,
become a useful and productive member of society, and develop conscientious
habits and the ability to accept criticism.
Doing these things may make you feel useful in the world and offset a tendency
to worry about your health. You also learn to believe in your own self-worth,
regardless of the opinions of others. Finally, you are able to function at your
most efficient level, knowing that your life has meaning.
Not doing so may bring inner conflict because you give in to confusion. You can
make yourself nearly invisible. You can also create disorder in your life and a
feeling of uselessness.
Vertex in Libra
You are expected to bring opposing factions together, counsel or arbitrate on a
fair and equal basis, or seek a satisfactory compromise. You also may develop a
cooperative spirit and sense of fair play to help yourself and others to move
forward. You may become conscious of a persecution complex that produces inner
conflict. You also can relate to others as equals, thereby creating inner
balance and avoiding unreasonable social demands. You are expected to cultivate
the arts of compromise and detachment.
Accomplishing these tasks may help you to put aside personal ego in
partnerships. You also learn to relate to others with a sense of justice.
Finally, you learn how to accept the need for balance in your personal life and
in your environment.
Not doing so may result in a situation in which you are biased in judgment, and
this result could add to your agitation. You may become demanding, in which case
you could allow self-centeredness that deepens relationship inhibitions. Then
you could fall into both indecisiveness and inertia.
Vertex in Scorpio
You are expected to learn total self-mastery. You will explore the limits of
your desires and appetites, defining the limits not only in terms of self but
also out of respect for the rights of others. You will assist others in terms of
mutual financial arrangements. You may deal with the dead or dying, healing, and
good business practices in which you reform or recycle what is obsolete. You may
provide concrete assistance to enhance the security of a partnership, acquaint
yourself with metaphysics in order to sharpen perspective, and gain a sense of
collective values. You may also bring occult knowledge forward into the light.
By doing these things, you may express an inner emotional need to reform,
recycle, or find personal rebirth each time you are tested by appetites of the
lower nature. Then you gain strength in the regenerative or healing forces of
the higher realms, and you may be reborn to the higher self. You could be
involved with the issues of working to gain the support of others as well.
If you donít accomplish these goals, you may bow to the base material desires of
others, creating a smoldering resentment within yourself. As a result, you may
feel conflict and emotional insecurity.
Vertex in Sagittarius
You are expected to develop broad vision and a deeper understanding of the
significance behind the facts. You may develop a new religious awareness or a
philosophical view of things. You could become inspired by reaching toward
higher truth. You may travel or attain a higher education, deal with legal
principles, teach a class dealing with religion or philosophy, and editorialize,
promote, or bring understanding to difficult situations.
Doing these things may teach you to have faith in yourself, your abilities, and
your goals in life. You will learn that faith in yourself must come from faith
in something outside the self.
Not accomplishing your goals may incline you to accept a law or principle
without looking past the facts to see how it will actually affect people. You
will find it difficult to accept the accolades and rewards you have earned and,
instead, drift aimlessly through life.
Vertex in Capricorn
You are expected to accept the fact that in carrying out your duties and
obligations, you prepare yourself for positions of greater responsibility. You
need to accept limitations and diligently work through them. You will realize
that you are being forced to develop organizational ability, caution, prudence,
and patience. You may possibly run for an office at a time when no one else
wants the position. You need to accept limitations whether they are self-
imposed or imposed by the outside world.
Accomplishing these goals may make you aware of how much your organizing ability
is needed. You will also purify the self through struggle and restriction.
Not fulfilling these tasks may keep you from moving up to a higher position, due
to your apparent undependability, instability, or excuses. You may claim that
you lack the necessary time due to domestic considerations. You may experience
inner conflict if you see yourself as the victim of an unstable environment. You
could also have subtle feelings of inferiority from your lack of discipline.
Vertex in Aquarius
You are expected to deal with all kinds of people, even those you feel you
cannot tolerate. People want you to develop enough detachment to rise above
individual pettiness so you see your peers not as strangers, but as "brothers."
You can grow through developing true individuality, unfettered by peer group
pressures. You need to accept the idea that you are one among equals.
Doing these things may help you avoid feelings of superiority. You are not too
important to bother with being a friend. You will learn to overcome your own
Not accomplishing the above tasks may mean that you become the object of
intolerant treatment from any group you are prejudiced against. You may be
blocked by those you oppose, simply because they decline to create the future
openings you need. Accomplishments become meaningless, and the impact you hope
to make on the world falls well short of your expectations.
Vertex in Pisces
You are expected to develop selflessness and cultivate emotional or
psychological insights rather than the practical, material insights that come
more naturally to you. People want you to develop compassion and the ability to
listen to people who may be hurting inside and simply need to know that someone
cares. You may decide to serve in areas of confinement, institutions, or places
where work must be done quietly behind the scenes. You will also need to accept
the fact that we are children of the universe and are here in order to convey
the ideal of infinite love and beauty to our less aware brethren.
If you accomplish the above tasks, you may grow through contact with the very
people you have assisted. You will gain insights above and beyond practical
considerations, and you will realize that you are basically secure in your
knowledge of the scheme of things.
Not doing so you turn back into yourself, only to rediscover things you already
know. This could generate a sense of futility, which can lead to despair and
