Chapter 1: The Ascendant
The precise time on the day of your birth determines your particular
Ascendant, also known as your Rising Sign. This was the zodiac sign that was
rising over the horizon when you were born. In addition to your Sun and Moon
Sign, the Rising Sign reveals very important traits that make up a major
part of your personality and your individual approach to life. This is
usually the impression you like to make before you really get to know
someone; it is your outer personality and image.
There is a distinct part of your outer personality that expresses itself
very much like a Cancer. You are emotional, personable and intuitive.
Since this was the sign of the zodiac that was rising over the horizon
at your time of birth, the principle of Cancer--your personal security
foundation--will be integrated into almost every area of life in some way.
The Moon is your chart ruler. To discover even more about what's a
priority for you, and also the first impression you make on others, read
everything in the chapter on the Moon.
Venus Conjunct or in hard aspect to Asc.:
You are a naturally attractive person and other people find it easy to
relate to you. The image you project is very important to you and you will
usually invest whatever time and effort you feel necessary on grooming, the
right clothes, etc. You do this because you may feel more than just a hint
of chronic dissatisfaction with yourself. Even at your absolute best, you
still feel as though there's room for improvement.
Uranus Conjunct or in hard aspect to Asc.:
You're anything but a stick-in-the-mud. You march to the beat of a
different drummer and you're something of a rebel. You crave excitement and
when life gets too predictable (i.e., boring) you know how to stir things up
You'll often speak your mind regardless of the effect pro or con, that
it has on other people. As a result, you attract other strong personalities
who can handle your sometimes volatile personality and not be offended.
Chapter 2: The Sun
The placement of the Sun in your chart will show you how (the sign)
and in which area of life (the house) tremendous potential exists for you.
Here is where you want to be successful. The Sun cannot be ignored. We must
meet and deal with the area of life that the Sun shines on in our chart in
order find ultimate fulfillment. Everything revolves around the Sun. When
you master whatever issues the Sun points to, then other areas of life will
proceed in a more balanced and satisfactory manner. The Sun also represents:
your own will, major goals, the father, men in your life, children,
creativity, and the real inner you.
Sun in Gemini:
Clever, social, and communicative, your general approach to life is
light hearted. You can be somewhat hard to pin down because you have a
wonderful natural curiosity about life. You prefer to know at least a little
bit about everything. The restless nature of Gemini is quite conducive to
your preference for a wide variety of experiences and mental pursuits.
Geminis often won't take a particular subject into great depth, but for you,
just having a taste of the smorgasbord that life offers is enough to
This is the sign of communication in all of its various forms, whether
verbal, written, or just learning for the joy of it. You like sharing what
you have learned with others, and the latest news and even gossip has a hard
time sneaking by you.
Because of your storehouse of bits of information, you find it easy to
understand different viewpoints, and you prefer to agree with someone rather
than create conflict.
Taking life too seriously is not appealing to you. "Lighten up" could be
your motto and other people sense this, which generally makes you easy to be
around and therefore in demand socially.
Sun in 11th house:
Your personal fulfillment is reinforced by expressing your uniqueness.
Chances are you will find yourself having to work cooperatively within the
framework of a group of people. The life challenge here is to work
cooperatively while maintaining a certain amount of your own autonomy. You
may have to make a choice about leaving the confines of a particular group
and striking out on your own at some point.
You must rely on your intuition when dealing with certain associates, as
this placement of the Sun can make you vulnerable to being taken advantage
of by those who don't really have your best interest at heart. On the other
hand, influential people may appear who can help you attain your fondest
hopes and wishes.
There is a side to you that can be unpredictable, rebellious and highly
independent. That which is considered to be different, unusual, or in some
cases bizarre, appeals to you. You're often a step ahead of the crowd.
Appreciate your own uniqueness.
Moon in soft aspect to Sun:
Confident and basically self-assured, you know how to work for and not
against, yourself. Your life goals are in sync with your emotional nature.
You are basically well balanced and this aspect supports favorable outcomes
even during crisis times.
Mom and Dad were probably quite satisfied with their relationship when
you were born. Of course there's no telling how things eventually played
out, but your earliest impression of relationships was most likely a
Mars in soft aspect to Sun:
Here is the opportunity to draw on willpower backed by action when the
need arises. Vitality and physical energy are promoted in a positive manner
and your endurance is high when you're motivated. You know how to compete
for your own survival, but you generally don't go out of your way to
challenge others unless you feel it's really necessary.
Neptune Conjunct or in hard aspect to Sun:
Your creative urges are stimulated by your imagination. However, the
free expression of your will can be challenged by feelings of self doubt,
making it necessary for you to avoid allowing yourself the luxury of self
condemning thoughts. Stay away from negative modes of escapism (sleeping too
much, drugs, etc.).
Trust inner voices that alert you to people, places and things that
don't have your best interest at heart. To override this intuition is to
invite disappointment and regrets. Observe the difference between true
intuition and unrealistic fear.
Chapter 3: The Moon
The Moon in your chart represents the past and points to an area of
life (the house) where we function out of instinctive awareness. Often we
have a deep emotional need to do the things that the Moon's house placement
represents. Whenever insecurities arise and our feelings become involved, we
tend to bring the traits (the sign) of our Moon into play. The Moon is like
our security blanket. It also represents: the home, females in your life,
the mother, nurturing others or being nurtured ourselves, as well as things
related to the domestic scene in general.
Moon in Aries:
Intense, spontaneous, and often impatient, there is a certain sense of
urgency surrounding whatever you undertake. You can display a quick temper,
but once your anger has been duly expressed, you rapidly get on with life
again. Holding a grudge isn't especially appealing to you.
You can be jealous if you feel threatened and will definitely fight for
a cause especially if it pertains to you personally.
You need a sense of adventure and a challenge. When your mood and
emotions are low, there is nothing like a new project to lift your spirit
Moon in 9th house:
You can be restless, and you've probably done more than your share of
being on the move. You need to expand your horizons and this is often
accomplished through travel, higher education or simply getting away from it
all by periodically communing with nature.
This placement of the Moon can also indicate residence in a foreign
country even if it's only temporary.
Your imagination is expansive and the potential exists to experience
Mars Conjunct or in hard aspect to Moon:
When you feel emotionally shaky, you tend to imagine the worst and this
manifests outwardly as being oversensitive. Usually, you don't lose your
temper without a good reason. Other people can be surprised by the intensity
of some of your emotional outbursts. However they usually pass as quickly as
they began. Deep down you hate having to surrender to anyone or anything.
Jupiter Conjunct or in hard aspect to Moon:
When you become emotionally involved in a situation, you tend to blow
things out of proportion. Once an emotion takes hold, it's hard for you to
show restraint and then you wonder why others find it difficult to get as
worked up as you are, or take you as seriously as you'd like.
When you're upset you can get careless and you cope by indulging your
whims of the moment.
Saturn Conjunct or in hard aspect to Moon:
Try not to be so hard on yourself. You're a whole lot better than you
think you are. When you recognize your worth, you can accomplish your goals
whatever they may be.
Vague feelings of melancholy and pessimism can be defeated by staying
actively involved in life and taking some constructive action toward a
future goal. You are someone who benefits by making sure that you have
planned something each day to look forward to, no matter how small.
Neptune in soft aspect to Moon:
You are sensitive, empathetic, and impressionable. Your imagination is
Your perception of the world around you is based on your ability to
instinctively pick up the subtle vibrations in the environment that other
people seem oblivious to. Many times you are led through life on a kind of
invisible radar that puts you in the just the right place at the right time.
Chapter 4: Mercury
Mercury is the planet of communication. It tells us about how we
think and talk. You can gain insight into your mode of gathering, processing
and transmitting information from Mercury's placement in your chart. Mercury
also represents: transportation, the five senses, youth, reading, and
Mercury in Gemini:
Mercury functions well in Gemini. This placement makes you curious and
clever with fascinating bits of information about a variety of subjects.
You learn easily and you have a never-ending curiosity about life. You
love talking about whatever is going on, especially in your immediate
environment. Your mind is logical and you possess a quick wit.
It's interesting to note that the sign of the twins (Gemini) is
associated with the ability to mimic. It's easy for you to pick up and copy
the accents and nuances of language. You might even be able to do verbal
characterizations of other people with ease.
Easily bored, somewhat anxious and indecisive at times, the biggest
challenge here becomes trying to focus on too many things at one time and
thus having your projects sabotaged by a scattered approach.
Mercury in 11th house:
You probably have numerous social contacts and many of your friendships
are based on shared ideas rather than purely emotional interests.
You have an active mind and the ability to come up with unusual ideas.
You can harness the power of your mind to turn your wishes into actuality.
Mercury is Retrograde
Lots of conversations are carried on inside your own head. With Mercury
retrograde, you rarely blurt things out without thinking them over first. As
a result, you may often find it easier to express yourself in writing. If so
inclined, you'd make an excellent writer.
Chapter 5: Venus
Venus is the planet of relating to others, and thus is associated
with love, attraction and socializing. In a male's chart, Venus can provide
clues about traits he finds attractive in females. In a female's chart, it
reveals something about how she relates to males. Venus is also the planet
of material goodies and sensual delights in all of their various forms.
Venus also represents: money, harmonious conditions, pleasurable activities,
beauty, and the arts.
Venus in Cancer:
A natural romantic, you are sentimental, charming and unselfish. This
placement either makes you a mothering, nurturing partner, or it may work
the other way around and make you long to be nurtured and cared for
yourself. Hopefully, a balance can be obtained. Love equals security to
you and you may often be imposed upon because others will sense your desire
to please and attempt to take advantage of you. You may attract a partner
who has some "growing up" to do in some regard.
Venus in Cancer people will never really forget a love affair or anyone
else with whom there was a strong emotional attachment. The challenge here
would be to let go of the past and move on when the time comes.
Venus in 12th house:
You enjoy your own company and you may have a higher than average desire
to retreat from the chaos of the world.
Quite often, relationships are sparked by an instant knowing of the
other person based on a subconscious past life recognition.
You may experience at least one affair of the heart that you choose to
keep to yourself.
You can be easily hurt and you will sometimes choose to deny your own
true feelings, preferring instead to keep them buried where the risk of
disappointment or rejection is avoided.
Uranus Conjunct or in hard aspect to Venus:
Relationships in general often begin suddenly, but they also can end
just as abruptly. This aspect brings many unusual associates and alliances,
and you are attracted to people who are considered "different" by societal
norms. If a relationship turns sour, you can become quite aloof as a way to
emotionally cope with disappointments.
Financial matters often seem subject to sudden and unexpected
circumstances that seem beyond your control. Consider getting a handle on
any impulsive spending habits. Develop a routine of sticking some cash away
so that sudden financial obligations don't turn into a major crisis.
Chapter 6: Mars
Mars is our planet of action, energy output, motivation, and
instinctive biological drives. It shows how and in which area of life you
are willing to put forth a lot of effort. Mars' energy is quick, impulsive,
and survival oriented. In a male's chart, Mars reveals something about how
he relates to females. In a female's chart, Mars can provide clues about the
traits she finds attractive in males. Mars also represents: competitive
situations, conflicts, accidents, and sexual energies.
Mars in Aries:
With Mars in Aries you are most certainly a survivor in every way. Mars
feels very much at home in the sign Aries. You are capable of quick and
fearless action when the need arises.
You want everything now, and will display a good deal of impatience when
it is not immediately forthcoming!
You should watch the tendency to be overly aggressive and daring as this
placement can make you somewhat accident prone. A high degree of leadership,
natural competitiveness, and the ability to put your conscience aside in the
name of survival make those with Mars in Aries good candidates for military
or athletic careers.
Mars in 9th house:
You are more than willing to fight for truth, honor and justice.
Fairness is important to you and life isn't always fair. Whatever your
philosophy on life is, you will adamantly defend it, but only when you know
you're right. Much of what you believe is based on your own intuitive
You'll energetically pursue higher education and travel holds great
appeal for you.
You can be a champion for earth related and environmental issues. You
instinctively know how to survive in the wilderness (just in case you wanted
Jupiter Conjunct or in hard aspect to Mars:
You can be quite impulsive and you may take actions that you later
regret because you act first and think later. There is a tendency to be
somewhat accident prone. Use caution and develop patience especially when
using potentially dangerous machinery.
You have a lot of drive which, ideally, you can learn to control and
focus on constructive goals. In this case you can get a lot accomplished.
Sports can provide an excellent way to channel your natural competitive
urges and this aspect can give you the edge in athletic pursuits.
Neptune in soft aspect to Mars:
You can tap into unseen energies in your environment and that combined
with the survival instincts of Mars gives you a very good sense of what is
going on around you even if there appears to be no rational explanation for
it. An example of this would be feeling like taking an alternate route to
work one day and later finding that you avoided a major traffic jam.
If you use the highest form of these energies, you will spare no effort
when it involves helping someone out.
Pluto Conjunct or in hard aspect to Mars:
No one can ever accuse you of being wishy-washy or half hearted.
Intensity of purpose and fearlessness mark your approach to going after what
you want. If you feel threatened, you can be ruthless or even downright
cruel. You are extremely goal oriented and if you use this aspect with
wisdom, then nothing can stop you from achieving almost anything you wish.
Get in touch with and cultivate your compassionate side.
Chapter 7: Jupiter
Jupiter is the planet of expansion and taking things beyond normal
limits. It shows us where the universe allows us to indulge ourselves, and
often we find that wherever it is in the chart is where things work out in
our favor eventually. Some call this luck. Jupiter also represents: faith,
ideas about God, abstract thinking, high ideals, and abundance.
Jupiter in Aries:
Much of your success in life is directly related to your ability to
initiate action. Waiting around for life to hand you what you desire is
definitely not your style. You don't waste time sitting around wondering if
a particular action will produce results that you may later regret; you just
You possess an abundance of energy, assertiveness, and optimism. You are
quick to recognize opportunities before they pass you by and you know how to
make the most of them.
Try not to over extend yourself. Practice thinking twice before you act
at least some of the time. Make sure that your generosity is well placed.
Jupiter in 9th house:
Your nature is philosophical and intellectual. You probably see God as
a beneficial and merciful being.
Foreign people, places and things can be fortunate for you. The great
outdoors calls to you from time to time and you may even end up living in
the country if your desire to get away is strong.
Truth, fairness and high ideals go a long way with you.
You might get reckless every so often because Jupiter here can be very
lucky and it's easy to feel invincible sometimes.
This is an excellent placement for teachers and preachers.
Saturn Conjunct or in hard aspect to Jupiter:
Often you feel challenged to find a balance between letting your hair
down and otherwise indulging yourself, versus doing what is considered
proper and acceptable by traditional standards. Saturn, the planet of
restraint, is urging you to create an equilibrium between these urges.
Remember that you are being encouraged to find a balance, which doesn't mean
you must eliminate joy, optimism and hope.
Trust your intuition and nurture faith and positive thinking. If you
find that obstacles to the realization of goals always seem to pop up, then
it's important for you to take an honest inner inventory of what you really
believe you deserve. Immerse yourself in all activities that encourage
self-esteem and positive thinking.
Chapter 8: Saturn
Saturn is our planet of restriction and discipline. It shows us
where we may feel inadequate in some way, and thus we take this area of life
very seriously because we want to perfect ourselves. Saturn also represents:
life lessons to be learned, trials and tests, a strong sense of duty, and
bringing ideas into material form.
Saturn in Cancer:
You can be quite ambitious where personal security issues are at stake.
Your upbringing might have been marked by a sense of melancholy and perhaps
disappointments. Even though your parents cared for you, you may have still
felt lonely and insecure. Defensiveness and inhibited emotional responses
can create their own self fulfilling prophecies. As an adult you are now
free to rewrite the script where your home life is concerned. Should you
choose to establish your own family life, you will take the responsibility
very seriously. You may have to learn that your own personal space can be a
haven where happiness and optimism prevail.
Reminder: work on boosting up the importance of your own opinion about
yourself rather than holding yourself back because of a need for approval
from others, especially your family. Repressed emotions will manifest as
stomach problems. Learn some techniques for healthy emotional release.
Saturn in 12th house:
This is a lifetime that will be greatly enriched by helping your fellow
man altruistically. Make some time to add a little hope to someone else's
life. You can empathize with others' feelings of hopelessness and despair
because you have either experienced these emotions yourself or you have
subconscious memories from past lives to draw on.
Develop conviction and learn to ignore inner voices of doubt and
Whatever you imagine can turn into reality, so you may as well make a
pledge to yourself to think only the best. Take a chance on blind optimism.
Chapter 9: Uranus
Uranus is a planet of unexpected change and unpredictable events. It
tells us something about where we have unusual ideas and how we want to
express our own unique individuality. Uranus also represents:
rebelliousness, sudden awakenings, invention, progress, genius, anything
"New Age," and humanitarian efforts.
Uranus in Libra:
Uranus was in the sign of Libra for approximately seven years. This
means that you are part of a large group of people who will share many of
the same fundamental characteristics such as the ability to be cooperative,
diplomatic and fair. This placement of Uranus brings an unusual or
progressive approach to marriage and partnerships in general.
When you read your individual house placement for Uranus, you will be
able to see where these traits will express themselves on a more personal
Uranus in 4th house:
You can be a genius when it comes to being courageous enough to march to
the beat of a different drummer. Your upbringing somehow encouraged this
approach. Perhaps there were many changes of residence. If you struggled
during your childhood because either you or your family circumstances didn't
fit the norm, this can now be utilized to your advantage.
The world needs more free thinkers. Your life will not be boring!
Uranus is Retrograde
You can be a real character inside. Few people get this impression right
away. You'd rather play the role of conformist until you feel comfortable
enough to let your hair down. Then everyone is either shocked or pleasantly
surprised depending on whom you hang out with.
Chapter 10: Neptune
Neptune is a planet that dissolves hard and fast boundaries. It is
where we don't always see things as they really are, mostly because we would
rather view the world through rose-colored glasses.
With Neptune, anything becomes a possibility, especially that which we
can imagine. Neptune also represents: tuning into other planes of reality,
the spiritual dimensions, cosmic consciousness, movies, music, and inspired
Neptune in Sagittarius:
Because Neptune stays in the same sign about fourteen years, there are
many other people who will experience the same things that this placement
brings to varying degrees. Some of these include: the ability to integrate
unorthodox spiritual concepts with more traditional viewpoints, an intense
attachment to personal freedom and philanthropic leanings based on
compassion and idealism.
Your house position will show where Neptune affects your life on an
Neptune in 5th house:
Any creative pursuits which you undertake can be greatly reinforced with
Neptune here. You have a flair for creating drama and glamour.
The dating scene and other activities that fall into the "love affair"
category are often approached with unrealistic expectations. Later on when
reality visits you can end up feeling disillusioned and betrayed. These
kinds of situations can be avoided by making sure that you and your
intentions are nothing less than accurately represented in the beginning of
You would do well not to put all of your apples into speculative
financial ventures because the outcome may often be not what you imagined.
Pluto in soft aspect to Neptune:
Bigotry and narrow thinking are huge turn offs for you. You lean toward
a humanitarian outlook and you see the big picture, whether it applies to
you or society as a whole. Mysticism, magic and the occult attract your
interest and you can choose to use any knowledge gained to produce positive
Spirituality can undergo a complete regeneration process, and what went
before will be transformed into something that doesn't even resemble the
former. Usually there is a period of total chaos and confusion before order
Anything that is based on deception and pretense will be brought to
light and purged accordingly. The effects of this aspect are often
generational and the outcome will affect large segments of the society you
Neptune is Retrograde
Ever heard the term "suffer in silence?" Does it apply to you? Ask
yourself why you find it so difficult to share your real pain with others.
Someone made you feel guilty a long time ago and now a part of you lives as
though you're trying to make up for whatever the original so-called
transgression was. You want to heal the whole world. Start with forgiving
yourself in no uncertain terms. Unload other people's shabby misconceptions
which have been foisted upon you and find the tranquility you deserve.
Chapter 11: Pluto
Pluto is a planet that brings with it transformation. Something
about the area of life that it points to will undergo a complete change.
Significant lifestyle changes can happen whenever Pluto is involved. Deep,
complex issues will be brought to light eventually. It is where conditions
can swing from one extreme to the other. It's all or nothing.
Pluto also represents: psychological probing, keeping secrets or
bringing them to light, power and control issues, obsessions, healing and
Pluto in Libra:
Pluto is the slowest moving planet, and thus is recognized as exerting a
generational influence as it moves through each zodiac sign.
With Pluto in Libra you're part of the generation that can experience
radical changes in the marriage code, the justice system, arts and culture,
as well as relations with others both here and abroad.
On a personal level, those with Pluto in Libra tend to be adaptable,
intellectual, extravagant and concerned with fairness.
Read the house placement for Pluto in your chart. It shows you an area
of life where this planet has a more personal influence.
Pluto in 3rd house:
You can change your life by changing your thinking. Watch what you say
as it can profoundly affect your life. That doesn't mean to clam up.
Repression is unhealthy. Verbalize positive words. Write your anger out with
a vengeance and then burn it. Scream into your pillow. "It's O.K." "You're
If other people don't understand your intensity, don't make that your
problem. This is an intense world.
You know how to keep a secret. You know how to dig them out of others
Pluto is Retrograde
Some people go through massive changes that are clearly shown in outer
circumstances. You go through tremendous inner upheavals followed by
rejuvenation on the inside. You are one strong individual. You have depth of
character and a lot of class. You've earned it. You're like tempered glass.
You might crack, but you won't shatter.
Chapter 12: Elements, the North Node, and the Midheaven
In this section of the report we interpret the following
astrological influences: the Moon's North Node, the MC (the 10th house cusp
or Midheaven) and also a preponderance of an astrological element. A
"preponderance" occurs when 4 or more planets or the Ascendant is in that
element: fire, earth, air, or water. Many people do not have a heavy
emphasis of a particular element so not everyone will have an interpretation
of an element emphasis.
If the individual chart has aspects to the MC, these will reveal certain
career options and potentials for your consideration.
The North Node is an important pointer along the pathway of life. You'll
have to be willing to stretch yourself and move away from familiar patterns
in order to meet the challenge of the North Node. Great rewards will be
reaped in the form of personal growth and reaching your potential goals. The
North Node sign will suggest an approach to the area of life represented by
its house position.
North Node in Sagittarius:
Incorporating the following traits into your life will make it easier in
the long run to attain goals.
The best way to describe this principle is to imagine a bird having to
leave its nest for the first time. It is extremely challenging, but it's the
only way to really learn to fly.
Broaden your horizons. Go ahead and be blindly optimistic. Your faith in
the future can see you through difficult times.
Stretch your mental muscles. Take some courses in philosophy. You can
develop a talent for understanding abstract concepts.
Boring, stagnating jobs or relationships can suffocate your free spirit.
You must grow in this lifetime and a certain amount of freedom and adventure
is as necessary for you as the air you breathe.
North Node in 5th house:
The universe is encouraging you to play up the aforementioned traits in
these areas of life.
Consider the following: get in touch with your own creative urges and
honor your heart's desires. Recognize the importance of acknowledging your
You can work well with children in some capacity, whether your own or
other people's children. You can learn a lot by observing the play of
children and then finding a way to mirror that in your own life.
Give full expression to your capacity to love. Make some time for
socializing, the dating scene and partying. Work on feeling comfortable
being the center of attention.
Explore the stock market and learn all about making some wise financial
investments for yourself.
MC Conjunct or in hard aspect to Moon:
Professionally speaking, you'll have to learn to go with the flow, as
your main career may lack stability during the first half of your life. You
may be a late bloomer where career is concerned, coming into full potential
later in life. You can expect a strong female influence around the question
Ideally your career should be one that allows you a certain amount of
emotional satisfaction. Real estate, and all options that relate to the
domestic scene in general, represent career potentials. Supportive, care
taking roles are favored; likewise, those in which there is considerable
contact with the public.
MC Conjunct or in hard aspect to Jupiter:
Lofty ambitions and the desire for recognition spur you onward in the
Career choices may include teaching-especially at higher levels, law,
spiritual counseling, publishing, or working in the travel industry, as a
librarian, or in sports related fields.
MC Conjunct or in hard aspect to Saturn:
You can lead people because you have an aura of authority and
responsibility that others pick up on and your advice is often sought out by
those who need what they perceive to be a reliable source of input.
Saturn aspecting your career cusp demands a kind of perfection and those
who have it are often successful after deciding to persevere no matter what,
through trying times and obstacles.
Suitable career options may include: politician, government worker,
manager, accountant, corporate executive, construction and building worker,
chiropractor, doctor, or dentist. Wherever precision combines with form, or
reliable leadership qualities can be brought into play, you have a career
Four or more Fire Signs
Energetic and aggressive, in this lifetime you will learn all about
inspiration, faith, and living in the moment. Your intuition is highly
developed and it's not unusual for "fiery" people to see visions.
Sports and athletic events are an excellent way for you to fill your
need for a challenge while satisfying your inner competitive drive.
Four or more Air Signs
Logical and analytical, you will learn all about using the powers of the
mind. You respect mental accomplishment in yourself and others, and you may
end up being considered an intellectual by your peers.
If something doesn't make sense, you find it well nigh impossible to
throw yourself wholeheartedly into it. Emotional content carries little
weight in your important decision making processes.
Chapter 13: House Rulerships
This chapter deals with an Astrological technique known as House
Rulers. The "houses" of the horoscope deal primarily with your earth plane
experiences. As such, the tone of these interpretations may appear to be
more "predictive" in nature. Not all statements will apply absolutely to
your experience. Here we are exploring some of the various options that may
exist in your chart based on the links between these twelve major areas of
life, the Houses of the Horoscope.
Ruler of 1st house in 9th:
You have a strong interest in broadening your mental experiences, perhaps
through higher education, exploring different philosophies of life, or even
through developing your own ideas about what makes the universe tick.
Be ready to do some long distance traveling during your life. It's in the
Ruler of 2nd house in 11th:
You may be someone who chooses to put some of your own money into
supporting a humanitarian cause, or some other kind of organization
representing a cause that you feel strongly about. There's a part of you
that values efforts dedicated to creating changes which have global
The money you earn yourself will assist in the manifestation of your
fondest hopes and wishes. Open up a "dream come true" account for yourself.
Your sense of self worth is supported by the love you receive from
others. Do yourself a favor and hang out with those who assist rather than
detract from your causes. Wishes can come true when the self worth is strong
enough to open the door for them.
Ruler of 3rd house in 11th:
This indicates that you may think quite a bit about changing the world
through humanitarian or other group efforts.
You have many ideas about how to manifest your fondest hopes and wishes.
Your thinking may be a bit radical, ahead of the times or unusual in some
You may have a lot of communication with friends, acquaintances and
groups of people.
Ruler of 4th house in 12th:
There may have been unclear circumstances surrounding your mother or
other close family members-perhaps mentally creating an idealized version of
your childhood circumstances.
You could be a very private person and you feel emotionally secure even
when you are alone.
This can also mean that you'll become more spiritually oriented during
the second half of life, perhaps putting more emphasis on developing that
side of yourself.
Ruler of 5th house in 3rd:
You enjoy anything related to transportation (cars, planes, etc.)
Your children are often on your mind and they might even influence your
ideas. Children in general are willing to listen to you. You may enjoy the
Ruler of 6th house in 9th:
The work you do may be related to teaching at a higher level or it could
be involved with the publishing or advertising fields. It may require a good
deal of travel or it may be that you simply work outside versus sitting in a
traditional office job. Or, your work may actually be related to your
If you own pets, you may prefer large ones to small ones.
Ruler of 7th house in 12th:
