The interpretation of your astrology chart begins on the following page.
You will find that the interpretation of your chart is written in simple
language, uncluttered by astrological jargon. If a statement appears to
contradict another statement, then you exhibit these opposite qualities at
different times in your life. For example, a statement that you are highly
sociable and gregarious and a statement that you prefer solitude seemingly
contradict each other; this means that you vacillate, and need both sociability
and solitude at different times.
The astrological factor that the interpretation is based on is also given. The
astrological factor is given for the benefit of astrologers and students of
astrology. If you are not a student of astrology, then obviously the factor will
not be meaningful to you, and you can ignore it.
If you find this interpretation of your birth chart interesting and informative,
you might want to discuss your birth chart with a professional astrologer to
learn more about the astrological influences on your life.

Chapter 1: The Inner You: Your Real Motivation
You have powerful emotional attachments to the past, your family, your
childhood, those places you associate with safety and security and your
beginnings. Maintaining a connection with your roots and heritage and keeping
family bonds strong are very important to you. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental,
you tend to cling to whatever is dear to you, be it person, familiar place, or
You are sympathetic, nurturing, supportive, and very sensitive to the emotional
needs of other people. You like to be needed, to care for others, and you often
worry about the people you love. You have a very strong need for a sense of
belonging and acceptance, and you center much of your life around your home. You
are more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement,
or position in society. Kindness, consideration, and tenderness impress you more
than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
You are primarily emotional and your views are often dominated by your feelings
and by your own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic, or
abstract principles. It is difficult for you to judge situations in a fair,
objective manner for your personal sympathies and loyalties usually enter in.
You take things very personally, and sometimes build a wall around yourself to
protect yourself from pain and rejection. You feel rather shy and vulnerable at
heart. You also tend to be moody, experiencing frequent emotional ups and downs.
You need to have a place and time in your life to withdraw, introspect, dream,
and replenish yourself; otherwise you become cranky and unhappy with those
You function in an instinctive, nonrational manner and like to immerse yourself
in creative activities where you can express your feelings, imagination, and
instincts. You often love to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to
nurture and nourish others. You also have a great affinity for music, because it
evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into
Your compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are your strong points. Your
faults include an inability to release the past and go forward, clannishness and
prejudice, and a tendency to be self-pitying when you meet hardships in life.

Chapter 2: Mental Interests and Abilities
You are a person of strong opinions and you express your views energetically and
often dramatically. You are an entertaining speaker and will embellish or
exaggerate in order to get your point across. You have an aptitude for
storytelling and performing. Even if your arena is only the classroom or dining
room table, you put on a good show. You have an abundance of creative ideas and
do not enjoy a job in which you have no creative input or voice in
decision-making. You could be a good politician, spokesperson, group leader,
director, or coach.
You possess excellent powers of concentration, and enjoy studying or deep
thinking in solitude. Discriminating and highly rational, you get right down to
the bare bones in any discussion, and are quick to see the fuzzy thinking or
weaknesses in another's logic. You are well-suited to any work which requires
organized thinking, precision, and a methodical approach. You enjoy working on
problems that others consider too tedious, repetitive, or technical. You tend to
become a specialist in some field of knowledge, and to become engrossed in all
of the small details of that area, sometimes not realizing that few people share
your particular interest, especially to the extent that you do.
Although your thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times you
can be quite the opposite. Periods of absentmindedness, building castles in the
air, or ruminating over mystical, abstract, or imponderable subjects are also
likely, as discussed below.
Vague, confused thinking which can lead to miscommunication and
misunderstandings can be a problem for you, and you have to work at being as
clear, honest and unambiguous in your dealings with others as you possibly can.
You tend, also, to "go off the deep end" regarding spiritual philosophies,
imaginative ideas, or theoretical speculation which may or may not have any real
relevance or validity. Try to critically test out your ideas, or seek out a
person whose judgment and character you respect, to use as a sounding board.
Never satisfied with the face value of anything, you are always probing beneath
the surface for deeper reasons and hidden motives - though you rarely reveal
your own. You have a very suspicious, even paranoid, side. You mind is
penetrating and deep and you have an aptitude for research, investigative
reporting, or private investigation. You are keenly interested in the deeper
aspects of the human psyche, with a sort of "x-ray vision" regarding the inner
motivations and intentions of others. You are drawn to anything secret, hidden,
or mysterious, and may pursue esoteric or occult studies. You are also a
forceful and convincing speaker or writer, with the ability to influence
people's thinking by the sheer power of your conviction.
There seems to be a nervous unrest about you, and you tend to be somewhat
irritable and easily excitable. Others may consider your views of the world a
bit peculiar, as your grasp of reality is apt to be a little confusing.

Chapter 3: Emotions: Moods, Feelings, Romance
Even-tempered and peace-loving, you are not easily ruffled and are rarely given
to emotional displays. You have a calming effect on more high-strung or volatile
people, and an emotional steadiness that others find soothing. Though gentle and
not easily provoked, you are tremendously stubborn and will resist any change
which requires an emotional adjustment, such as changes in your home life or
You seek security and loyalty in love, are extremely devoted to your loved ones,
and provide a warm, nurturing atmosphere for them. However, you tend to cling
and seek to keep others from changing.
A great deal of physical affection, closeness, and touching is essential to your
well-being, and you have a tendency to overindulge in sensual comforts and
pleasures. At times you substitute food for emotional comfort and love.
You have conflicting emotional desires and needs which complicate your personal
life. You may feel that you cannot depend on your love partner to take care of
you or perhaps you cannot decide what you really want in a love relationship: a
parent or a lover. If your needs for emotional sustenance and love are not
satisfied, overeating (especially sweets) can be a problem for you.
You are assertive and confront difficulties in a direct, no-nonsense sort of
way. You cannot tolerate self-pity or passivity, and you can be rather brusque
with others' emotional problems. "Stop crying and DO something about it" might
be your motto.
Although you are impetuous and easily provoked (as mentioned above), you also
have a good-natured, live-and-let-live attitude and a sense of humor, which
balances that. While hotheaded at times, you are usually a good sport.
Generally sunny and optimistic yourself, you have a cheering effect on those
around you. You like and need people, and others genuinely like you too. You
enjoy a wide circle of friends who are like family to you. Entertaining,
partying, social activities, and fellowship are essential ingredients for your
You tend to have strange quirks, idiosyncrasies, or domestic habits, and you may
feel that you don't fit in with "normal" people. These could be endearing
eccentricities, or truly outlandish tastes and behavior. Establishing a steady
routine and rhythm in your life would be very beneficial but may not be easily
achieved. Ideally you can create a unique lifestyle that affords you a lot of
personal space, freedom, and flexibility to follow your own somewhat erratic
rhythms -- while at the same time providing some order and consistency. There is
a current of emotional discontent or restlessness within you also, which may be
reflected in unstable personal relationships of the on again/off again variety.
Whether you realize it consciously or not, you crave change and excitement.
Warmhearted and generous in love, you cannot tolerate pettiness or stinginess in
your partner. You want a Hero, a Prince or Princess to idolize and adore,
someone you wholeheartedly admire and can be proud of. You are tremendously
loyal and devoted once you give your heart to someone.
You crave love, appreciation, and attention from others and hate to be ignored.
You are rather susceptible to flattery and love to feel SPECIAL. You enjoy some
drama and color in your love life and grand romantic gestures or an extravagant
expression of generosity impresses you.
There can be a lack of harmony or satisfaction in your romantic relationships
-- not necessarily a great deal of open conflict, but simply an underlying
tension or discontent. This is because the people you find likeable, lovable,
and agreeable to you may not be at all attuned to your sexual tastes and needs.
Another, more direct way of saying this is, the people you love and the people
you want to make love with are very different from one another. You may be
confused about what you really need and want in personal relationships. You need
to acknowledge that you have some conflicting desires (such as a partner who is
very gentle and sensitive but also a powerful, dominant personality, or security
and commitment in love but also a lot of freedom and excitement, etc.) Trying to
satisfy both sides of the equation can be a tricky challenge.
You are open and progressive in your attitudes towards love and romance, and
spontaneous and free in your love-expression. You are always willing to
experiment and try anything new that your partner suggests, and you enjoy being
surprised. A relationship in which both you and your partner have a good deal of
freedom and independence will hold your interest much more than a safe,
You tend to be subject to changes of mood, feeling great joy one moment, and
deeply depressed the next. Very impressionable, you have a tendency to be easily
tempted or seduced. Your feelings of love are apt to be somewhat misguided or
Your mind tends to wander and you have to beware of accidents caused by your
absent-mindedness. Acting on spontaneous ideas, you could easily become involved
in projects that are misrepresented or dishonest, leaving yourself open for
others to question your intentions.

Chapter 4: Drive and Ambition: How You Achieve Your Goals
You are serious about your ambitions, and disciplined, dedicated, and tenacious
in pursuing your objectives. Your drive and energy are directed toward practical
material accomplishment and achieving concrete results. You also strive to be in
a position of authority and social influence; you enjoy being the person who is
You are hard-working and capable of foregoing immediate comfort in order to
achieve your long-range goals. You can easily become a workaholic and are very
responsible and conscientious about doing a thorough job.
Realistic and pragmatic, you are an excellent strategist. You attain success by
formulating a conservative and workable plan and following through with it. You
are not a gambler when it comes to attaining your goals; you depend on your own
efforts and perseverance rather than good fortune. You have a natural shrewdness
and instinct for business or organizational management.
You have a rather cocky, confident, we-can-do-it attitude which people in your
environment pick up on quite readily. Inspiring, motivating, and encouraging
others to go out and do their very best is one of your innate gifts. You have
faith in the power of action and boldness, and enjoy imitating new programs and
You are likely to have very intense emotional relationships and may be drawn to
someone without knowing why. Very passionate, your sexual needs and desires are
strong. You could go to extremes and obsession in love and should guard against
a controlling attitude.

Chapter 5: Growth and Expansion: Areas That You Enjoy
Your ability to empathize and identify with others makes you unwilling to take
advantage of or hurt anyone. You care about the underdog. You may also be
unusually impressionable or have highly developed psychic sensitivity.
You have a tendency to become overly optimistic about an idea or project, and
overshoot the mark in your enthusiasm. You are great at stirring up excitement
and enthusiasm, and others enjoy your company, but try not to be unrealistic in
what you can expect from a situation.
Your manner is a bit phlegmatic and you could give the impression that
everything is too much for you. You also have an innate inclination to be a
little on the heavy side and seem to be content and happy leading a secluded and
solitary mode of life.

Chapter 6: Areas That Challenge You Or Are Difficult For You
You have a critical, cynical attitude towards many religions and philosophies.
Without realizing it, you prevent yourself from appreciating new viewpoints and
attitudes. You are more rigid and dogmatic than you realize. Your approach may
also be too intellectual or moralistic. You take your own political beliefs and
spiritual philosophy very seriously, worrying and fretting if you are not 100%
clear about some ideology or theory.
Because of your inner reserve and basic shyness, you appear to lack adaptability
and are a bit inhibited in dealing with other people. Your approach is somewhat
serious and it is difficult for you to face the public.
You tend to have a pessimistic outlook and seem to be plagued by deep inner
conflicts, which could severely undermine your strength. Self-critical and
uncertain about your goals, you feel that you cannot live up to your ideals and
end up disappointed.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which you instinctively and habitually
revert to when under stress - a mostly unconscious process and one which you are
apt to overdo because it is so familiar and thus easy for you. The direction you
need to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is
Seeking interpersonal harmony, cooperation, and togetherness, and desiring to
please or appease other people is very natural for you so much so that you
accommodate them at your own expense. When you are under stress, you tend to
look outside yourself for approval or answers, and you lean on others too much.
Therefore, developing self-reliance, and the courage to look to yourself for
your answers and forge your own path through life is a key factor in
You are often tempted to be less than completely straightforward about your
intentions or desires, and you can become enmeshed in a swamp of "little white
lies" and evasions. Radical honesty with yourself and others is the only way
out! This, however, leads you to confront some of your most deeply ingrained
fears, such as "what if "they" don't like me?" and "what if I have to go it
Cultivate your ability to be assertive, to take initiative and act on your own
behalf. Directness and self-reliance are keys.
Your conversations with others tend to be lively and productive but also could
easily turn into arguments. The subject of your discussions is likely to be
about working on and incorporating educational matters.
You have an inclination to gossip and spread stories or could be the subject of
gossip yourself at times. Your perception of partnership and family tends to be
somewhat unrealistic, and you may put up a good front and pretend to have a

Chapter 7: Generational Influences: Your Age Group
In this chapter we will discuss characteristics and traits of your generation.
Of course, you may not share all of the characteristics of your generation, but
you are greatly affected by the tone that is set by your generation.
The first topic is "The Subconscious and Emotional Drive of Your Age Group". In
this section we will describe a deeply felt urge, even compulsion, of your age
group. This deeply felt drive comes to the surface with great force and power,
and consequently leaves in its wake considerable upheaval and change. The second
topic is "The Ideals and Illusions of Your Age Group", that describes the
dreams, fantasies, and spiritual aspirations of your age group. The third and
last topic is "What is New and Different in Your Age Group", which describes
areas in which your age group tends to be innovative, inventive, unusual, and
also where it may be unstable and unreliable.
The characteristics described below may affect a group of people for anywhere
from a few years to about 30 years. There are one or more different astrological
factors described in each of the three sections below.
The Subconscious and Emotional Drive of Your Age Group
You are part of a 12 year group of people who have a complex and deep emotional
side. Your age group has a great fascination for the mysteries of life, and
members of your age group will make extraordinary breakthroughs in the
understanding of life processes; major advances in biological sciences will open
up new technological possibilities. Intensive probing into genetic structure and
cellular processes will accelerate genetic engineering into new vistas. Your
generation also probes the mysteries of birth and death, and members of your age
group will even develop laboratories for forging new understanding of what
happens at birth and death. Other breakthroughs will be made in the
understanding of animal behavior and sexual activity. Archeological studies will
unearth vast new insights into the history of man, and the exploration of the
ocean will receive a new impetus, spurred by unusual and interesting findings
made at the bottom of the sea.
Behind all of this work is the deep, probing, penetrating interest in the
mysterious. There is a deep fascination with sex, power, and the occult as well.
Hypnosis, karate, and other mental and physical training techniques are likely
to be very popular with your age group. The love of mystery is also likely to
bring a revival of mystery novels and movies; your age group will bring the
macabre into current fashion and style.
You are an emotionally complex group, and you can be prone to some very strange
behavior. Intrigue and mystery are exciting to your age group, and hopefully
this does not get the better of you, causing you to act in a cruel or grotesque
manner. There is a chance that crime, violence, and emotional disturbance will
be relatively high in your age group, but hopefully your interest in the
mysterious, strange, grotesque, and macabre will not manifest in this way.
The Ideals and Illusions of Your Age Group
You are part of a 14 year group of people who are conservative and traditional
in spiritual aspirations and religious outlook. Your age group returns to some
traditional basics in religion, and also traditional styles in music and art.
Classical music and literature have a revival with your age group, and a great
deal of inspiration is gained from the masters of arts, music, literature, and
philosophy throughout history. Your age group is contemplative and reflective
about religious matters and you take an objective and logical approach to
religious issues. Many of you are cynics and critics of spiritual and
Other age groups criticize your group for not having enough heart and
compassion. Sometimes this is true and is evidenced by some unusually crafty and
manipulative fraud and deception that occurs in the higher ranks of governments
and large businesses.
The entire generation to which you belong has tremendous opportunities for
spiritual rebirth and awakening. This will not be forced upon you or
precipitated by unavoidable events, rather it comes from an inner yearning and a
natural propensity to seek the depths.
What is New and Different in Your Age Group
You are part of a 7 year group of people who are extremely enterprising and
forward-looking. You are optimists and explorers. Your age group shoots for the
stars, figuratively and literally. Space exploration takes on new dimensions as
your age group pushes fervently to the next frontier. There is a buoyant and
youthful optimism and enthusiasm in your group, and you have your share of great
discoveries as well as pipe dreams and disillusionment. The discoveries and
contributions, however, are many, and more than compensate for the failures.
