Your Rising Sign

First let's take a quick look at your ascendant, or rising sign. Astrologers want to know what
zodiac sign is rising at birth, since this gives a picture of the way you appear or come across to
others.

Very much a social animal, you communicate yourself best when in a group or when
working toward some very worthwhile goal. You come across as impartial, tolerant, and open.
Your idealism is apparent to all who come to know you.

Introduction Page 3
Planet Aspects
The Lights: The Sun and Moon
At the time of our birth, the planets (through their configurations and relationships) tell us
something about how things were when we were born. Each planet points to special qualities
within us. Yet, of all the planets, the two most important planets to astrologers are the "lights,"
the Sun and the Moon. From where we stand here on Earth, the great shining Sun by day and
the reflecting Moon at night are our constant companions. They have much to tell us as to
where we have been and where we are headed.
The Sun: Your Self and Future
From the Sun comes light, that which draws us into life. The Sun represents all the changes
we have not yet taken, that part of us that we have not yet experienced but are headed toward.
The Sun represents our identity, or self, in that it is toward these that we are moving and
developing. Thus, it also represents that which we will become: older people, authorities --
those we look toward, or up to. Our essence, or future. Teachers, gurus, and older (more
experienced) people are represented by the Sun. The Sun is "hot stuff," those further up the road
of life experience.
You are always out-front, frank, and even rough at times -- getting to the heart of any
subject. On the move, you are a traveler of both the world and the mind -- philosophy and
religion. Outgoing, friendly, and well-liked, you may enjoy sports and physical activity. Not
petty, you like grand themes and big gestures.
Sun in Sagittarius
You push hard, but much energy is wasted because you tend to lack direction and planning.
You often work against the way things are: authorities or the status quo. It may be difficult for
you to coordinate your ambitions with your actual actions and feelings. You tend to hobble
yourself emotionally. Your drive and passions put you at odds with authority figures time and
again. This tendency towards clashes and emotional confrontation does exist, and at these times
you can be your own worst enemy.
Sun Square Mars
You are, no doubt, a touch too sober, but when it comes down to taking care of business,
Planet Aspects Page 4
Astro*Talk VenusScorpio Knowflake
you really shine. Others may think you are older than you are, for you tend to assume an
authoritarian stance. You may even enjoy the thought of being older, and probably treat
authority, the elderly, and your teachers with great respect, if not reverence. Discipline is no
problem, but you may be too authoritarian and somber.
Sun Conjunction Saturn
You get along well with older people, especially those in authority. It is easy for you to
convey yourself to others, and you always manage to make a good appearance. You have an
easy manner and find it easy to communicate with just about anyone.
Sun Sextile Ascendant
You naturally gravitate toward positions of power and authority. Others see in you great
practical ability and accept you as a leader or authority figure very easily. Your career may be
very important to you, even at the expense of home life.
Sun Conjunction Midheaven
The Moon: The Support System
Here is information about the kind of environment we create around us, our support system.
It is not only the surroundings that we set up today, but the Moon also represents our past, the
particular history and social background out of which we grew. Aside from our social
background, the Moon governs all of the old habits that we have grown beyond. We tend to
look down on, or back on, our Moon. It represents those experiences out of which we have
come, all those younger souls who are unconscious, or "sub" conscious to our own level. This is
why it is said that the Moon is a mystery planet, for it is both our parent and our child: our
parent in that out of it we were born, our child in that we can't but respond to others who are
now living as we once did.
You are gregarious, even to the point of bringing out the performer in others. You somehow
always manage to find a creative environment or the creative in any environment. You are great
with kids and big on animals, sports, and the outdoors. You are an instant umbrella of warmth,
friendship, and self-expression.
Moon in Leo
You have difficulty expressing your emotions and tend to say things that are unrelated to
what you may actually be feeling. You blurt out stuff that you don't really feel, and have trouble
putting your real feelings into words. Thus you can't find a lot of support from others for what
you think. You don't waste a lot of thought on your surroundings, and history or tradition
probably are not high on your interest list. You may upset others with things that you say. You
could tend to argue with women.
Moon Square Mercury
You may not get a lot of support for the way you come on -- your basic energy and drive.
You tend to go against the crowd and somehow always manage to create reverberation in those
around you. Some may even find you overbearing, for your intensity runs counter to whatever
is traditional or established. This fact could involve you in a lot of arguments over the years.
Planet Aspects Page 5
Astro*Talk VenusScorpio Knowflake
You are not the least bit sentimental, and even tend to ignore sentiment in others.
Moon Opposition Mars
Your sense of responsibility is so well developed that you always end up managing any
situation you become involved in. You are disciplined, work hard, and are good at getting
others to work with and for you. Perhaps a little too serious and frugal, you enjoy getting along
on less. Essentials are what count. You like to keep to yourself and tend to avoid too much
socializing. Others may prefer keeping some distance too.
Moon Trine Saturn
You are very original when it comes to home and surroundings -- the environment you
build around you. This could also manifest in unusual ways of supporting yourself. Your
mother may have been quite eccentric or your upbringing somehow different. When you have
breakthroughs, they often come as insights into your immediate surroundings, home, and
environment -- your support system in general. This could also manifest in your finding new
and different ways to make a living. You may have new ideas about the past, history, and
younger people, find it easy to create an unusual environment, and enjoy surrounding yourself
with what is new and different.
Moon Trine Uranus
You could find that you are neglecting either your home and family or your career (or both)
due to your social and personal life. Relationships, working with other people, and making a
good presentation. Home life is secondary.
Moon Square Midheaven
The Inner Planets: Mercury and Venus
The planets Mercury and Venus have more to do with our internal and personal life than
with life outside us. These inner planets are located between the orbit of the Earth and the Sun.
We can look to qualities that are inside us. Venus indicates how we appreciate and measure our
experience, how we value life. Mercury tells us something about how our mind works, how we
think and communicate -- our intrinsic brightness.
Mercury: The Mind and Communication
Mercury is the light in our eyes, the ever-changing consciousness within us that moves from
idea to idea. Thus Mercury has always represented thoughts, ideas, and the mental process in
general. It governs not only ideas, but communications, too. Communications -- by phone,
letter, spoken, or however -- are ruled by Mercury. Also thoughts, connections, phone wires,
and everything that connects and conveys -- even conversations.
The original Sherlock Holmes, you are able to ferret out information and all kinds of
secrets. You are research-oriented and security minded. A shrewd and penetrating mind, you
have great psychological instincts and are able to get at the causes beneath the surface of life.
Mercury in Scorpio
Planet Aspects Page 6
Astro*Talk VenusScorpio Knowflake
You say things you don't mean, and you don't always mean what you manage to say. Your
feelings often run counter to what you think or communicate, and you are not at your best when
things get emotional. What you say may evoke emotions from others.
Moon Square Mercury
You enjoy working with your mind and can usually find a solution to even the worst
problems. You like to solve puzzles and dilemmas, yours or others'. Your skills in this regard
make you expert at counseling and guiding others. Fine verbal skills and a natural sense of
justice makes legal work a distinct possibility. Working with laws, natural or man-made,
amounts to a real talent. You also have a great interest in ideas, the more true and lasting the
better. Religious concepts will be a lifelong concern for you.
Mercury Trine Jupiter
Anyone who tries to get you to play with words is in for a big surprise. Your mind cuts right
through all the window dressing and gets right down to the quick. Before anyone knows it, you
have the heart of the matter out front for everyone to see. You would make a great investigator,
either in scientific research or undercover work. It makes no difference. Your ability to get to
the point is all but phenomenal. You can talk and put into words areas of the psychological that
others wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole.
Mercury Conjunction Pluto
Venus: Values and Discrimination
Venus rules our values and sense of appreciation. When we appraise or appreciate
something, whether that be another person or a new car, this is Venus -- the sense of love and
compassion we may feel. By the same token, this planet rules enjoyment too. Whether it be
self-appreciation or just plain old decadent self-enjoyment by having a good time, this is Venus.
When we go shopping or are on a spending spree, it is Venus that allows us to appreciate and
value all the good things of life.
A passionate one, you are never lukewarm in love. It's hot or not. You are in love with
mystery, secrets, and intrigue, anything but that which is open or superficial. You have great
personal magnetism and a loyalty verging on possessiveness. You are never dull. You enjoy
money and influence too. Politics.
Venus in Scorpio
You love to work with younger people and would make a superb teacher or coach. You
appreciate a heart-felt approach and are an enthusiast if there ever was one. You understand and
encourage emotions, feelings and creativity and find it easy to work in these areas. You value
drive and the ability to get things done. Matters of the heart, marriage, and the like are areas
where you can help others.
Venus Trine Mars
You have the gift of working with others, helping them to sense and feel the unity of life.
Your love of the spiritual and the eternal is clear to all who meet you. You love to solve the
problems of the world, at least in words and images, and when you tell it, all are enchanted.
Planet Aspects Page 7
Astro*Talk VenusScorpio Knowflake
Dreams and images are your stock and trade.
Venus Sextile Neptune
When you love, you love with energy and passion. You value personal contact, cutting
through all the externals and getting to the heart of things. You understand and appreciate
vulnerability and have no compunction about presenting your own sensitive spots to others.
You enjoy working behind the scenes, getting at secret and hidden areas of the mind and
psyche. Changes and transformative experiences are where you like to be most.
Venus Conjunction Pluto
Your love of family and home and lack of interest in external affairs (be they friends or
work-related) needs to be noted and kept in balance.
Venus Square Ascendant
The External Planets: Mars, Jupiter, Saturn
The major planets outside the Earth's orbit (external to us) are Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn.
These are the planets of the outer world -- life as we find it outside ourselves. Mars tells us
something about the drive and energy we have, Jupiter shows us how to best channel that
energy, and Saturn decrees what sort of material or territory we will be passing through. Again:
Saturn tells us about the territory we will be going through, Jupiter the way or path through it,
and Mars what kind of push or drive we can count on to keep going.
Mars: Drive and Emotions
Mars is the planet of emotion and inner motivation or drive. When we search for the
meaning of something, life or whatever, it is Mars that urges us on, keeps us searching. Mars
also drives us against things, too and sends us into war and combat. The urgency of Mars, the
search for meaning, is identical to the need for union, yoga, and marriage. Mars is the planet of
union, and marriage is the most common form of yoga. When we have questions about the
opposite sex, we are looking at the planet Mars.
You have an inner drive to improve, and reform the world, to share the wealth -- true
democracy. You have a feel for groups and any large-scale business or community project.
Independent with a touch of the impersonal. With you, all persons get the same treatment.
Mars in Aquarius
Your drive to succeed is strong, but you often push yourself in a direction against your own
best interests. Your ambitions may find you at odds with authority figures again and again. A
tendency towards arguments and emotional drama exists.
Sun Square Mars
Others may find you pushy, for your motivation and drive could run counter to the
established values of the group. You tend to go against sentiment and refuse to credit emotions.
Culture and history don't fascinate you. You get a lot of reactions.
Moon Opposition Mars
Planet Aspects Page 8
Astro*Talk VenusScorpio Knowflake
All heart! Feelings are always out front and entirely natural. Love of action, motion (sports,
physical, sex, and the like). An expert at matters of the heart. Children, animals, and all creative
work get top billing. Always act on instinct, feelings.
Venus Trine Mars
You are very competitive -- even pushy -- when it comes to partners and other people. You
have a great social drive and love to work in a group or with close friends.
Mars Square Midheaven
Jupiter: Career and Life Path
Jupiter is the planet of success and simple survival, the way we have to solve the problems
that confront us. Thus Jupiter has to do with the way in which we can be successful, our
vocation. The Hindu word for Jupiter is Guru. Jupiter is the guru and guide, the way we go
through life, our life path or vocation. Jupiter is the method each of us has for dealing with the
laws of life, our Saturn, or limitations. Jupiter is the light or path. Jupiter provides us with our
sense of direction, the path we are on, the way we handle life. It affects how we approach life's
problems. It has always been an indicator of how successful we may be, our vocation.
You are a real humanitarian, with a genuine interest in social work and able to sacrifice
yourself to help others. You have a love of what's beyond the surface: religion, psychology, and
mysticism. Intuitive, sensitive to emotions, and sympathetic, you are always giving of self and
would make an excellent counselor. You are farsighted, future- oriented.
Jupiter in Pisces
Good ability to "get the picture" (the gist of things) and to communicate this to others. In
fact, helping others to find their way through life (for example via vocational counseling) is
indicated. Religious ideas and concepts are natural.
Mercury Trine Jupiter
You have real difficulties when it comes to matters of self-discipline. Your career suffers
due to your lack of training and education. You go against authority, clashing with it rather than
finding a way to work with and learn from it. You end up taking an unplanned course of action
that lacks any organization and seldom holds up for long. Taking the easy way out can be very
painful. You come back to square one again and again.
Jupiter Square Saturn
Your career is smooth until the question of personal freedom comes up. Successful career
moves may demand conformity and cost you personal freedom, perhaps toning down your
unconventional habits. You may have to conform and go along in order to get the right job.
This is a source of some tension, and your tendency to rebel can get you in hot water every time.
Jupiter Square Uranus
Mass psychology (what motivates people) is something you understand. Your career may
well be in managing or working with people within a psychological context. You would make a
good teacher in these areas too. Counseling or helping people who are in crisis or working out
sensitive issues are careers where you could excel. You have a way of sifting through the
Planet Aspects Page 9
Astro*Talk VenusScorpio Knowflake
garbage and coming up with whatever is meaningful or relevant.
Jupiter Trine Pluto
Saturn: Responsibilities
The process of finding out who we are (self-discovery) starts when we come to grips with
whatever problems life presents to us and begin to get a handle on them. In other words, if we
have not dealt with Saturn, or time (that is, if we don't have some control of time), there is little
opportunity for other questions. Saturn rules the laws and limitations of this material world we
all live in. Saturn indicates where we are bound to learn, the narrowness that makes our way
felt, the walls that make homes possible. Saturn holds us together as much as apart. Saturn is
said to be the great teacher, the planet that keeps us from getting carried away in one direction
or another. Although it always seeks to limit and determine any thought, word, or action, it also
defines and clarifies. Saturn is called the prince of the material world.
There could be difficulty with long-term goals and philosophies. You don't trust them.
Nearsighted, with your nose to the grindstone, you need to travel and explore the length and
breadth of the mind and world. Open up. Learn to value freedom, frankness, independence.
Look up!
Saturn in Sagittarius
You could be a bit too serious for most, but all would agree that you are organized and able
to take care of business. You may seem older than you are, and probably treat authority and the
law with great respect. Very disciplined, perhaps too sober.
Sun Conjunction Saturn
A tireless and disciplined worker, you have a tendency to be serious and to prefer being
alone over entering the social scene. You can get the most out of others, get them to work under
you. A wisdom that comes from simple needs. Conservative. Careful.
Moon Trine Saturn
You tend to pursue options and go off in directions without adequate organization and
planning. You need discipline but have trouble submitting to learn it, preferring instead to take
what appears to be an easier path, ending up short of your goals.
Jupiter Square Saturn
The Outer Planets
In the previous sections, we have dealt with planets that we can see with our naked eyes. In
general, these planets refer to life as we know and live it and are the so-called historical or
classic planets. Beyond these are three planets that are not visible in the sky and which have
cycles longer than the average human life span. Since they are beyond Saturn or time,
astrologers call them the trans-personal or transcendental planets -- the planets beyond the
physical. One of the ways astrologers learn something about our life beyond time (eternal life)
is through these three outer planets: Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. Here we find information on
how we discover ourselves (Uranus), how we understand and accept these discoveries
(Neptune), and, in time, how we depend and identify with them (Pluto).
Planet Aspects Page 10
Astro*Talk VenusScorpio Knowflake
Uranus: Break-Thrus & Insights
Our responsibilities can tend to weigh us down, and we each have our particular ways of
getting around (or breaking through) the mass of obstructions that tends to congeal around us.
The planet that has to do with how we get beyond the difficulties and problems life presents us
is Uranus. Here is the way insights come to us, how we discover or come to know and
understand ourselves. It has to do with finding new uses for old things, and it rules inventions
and sudden insights into our life -- everything that is unusual, eccentric, and out of the ordinary.
It is the reverse of the status quo and is always unconventional and heretical. Uranus is, in many
ways, the opposite, or undoing of Saturn.
You have new philosophies ideas for the future and new approaches to travel and
exploration (of all kinds). Long journeys interest you. You may startle others with your direct
conversations, always getting right to the nitty-gritty. You enjoy being alone, free, and on the
move. The original optimist.
Uranus in Sagittarius
The life of the party, able to loosen up even the most sober. Great at bringing out the best
qualities of others, discovering hidden talents. New and innovative ideas regarding the social
scene. Spontaneous, on the move. Independent.
Moon Trine Uranus
A rebellious streak could affect your career. Your sense of independence may tend to kick
over the apple cart and upset everything. Your progress and success may be at the expense of
your more unconventional tendencies -- a source of struggle.
Jupiter Square Uranus
Neptune: Ideals & Imagination
Even the most hard-nosed of us have moments of real understanding, when things are seen
as linked together and one piece. We stop getting the idea in little flashes and just get the whole
thing. It dawns on us. We each have our own way of letting go, having communion, and (as the
poet wrote) letting "the dewdrop slip into the shining sea." These moments and this state of
mind are, in fact, the source for all our imagination. There are many ways of seeing through the
separateness in the world to the unity behind it.
The practical is the ideal. Form follows function. You have a dream of being in control --
the puppet master. You are very interested in tradition and tend to be dignified and
conservative. You believe in an orderly society led by benevolent monarchs -- those who can
see what to do.
Neptune in Capricorn
A mother to every animal, child, or needy person. Generous to the extreme with others.
Always sensing the unity in life, as in the phrase "the dewdrop slips into the shining sea." You
love movies, myths, and long thoughts. No doubt a dreamer... a lover.
Venus Sextile Neptune
Planet Aspects Page 11
Astro*Talk VenusScorpio Knowflake
You work with real imagination and understanding in areas of the mind that are the most
personal or private -- depth psychology. You are like a midwife of the spirit, assisting at the
birth of each individual going through a spiritual or re-birth process. You accept the natural
process of birth, spiritual and physical, and have dedicated yourself to helping it along. You
would make a great teacher in these areas.
Neptune Sextile Pluto
Pluto: Inner Change and Growth
Pluto is the planet of profound change, starting deep within us and moving toward the
surface. It often touches upon the most sensitive psychological areas inside us. Once touched,
we have no choice but to change and grow. The most sensitive of experiences, the times of
greatest vulnerability, are times of complete identification with an experience, a person, or a
thing. We know in these instants that we are looking at our self, what we are. The most personal
of experiences is one of complete identification with a person, moment, or idea. Perhaps this is
only possible for most of us when we look into our child's eyes, and then only infrequently.
Love is not the experience here, but total identification. This is very sensitive stuff. To touch
upon this material is to go through deep inner change and transformation -- inner alchemy.
Identification and experiencing that life is our own creation and that, in fact, you are I and I am
you. This experience breaks us down and humbles. When we touch upon this experience, we
cannot but die to what we have been thinking and doing up to now. It reduces us to our most
sensitive because -- in a flash -- we see or remember that it all is us, our life.
You tear through appearances in an effort to get beneath, behind, and at the heart or
essence. You may find psychology, initiation, and mysticism, and the occult of great interest.
Intense personal change and inner growth are lifelong habits.
Pluto in Scorpio
Your intense and probing mind has no trouble getting at the heart of any question. Woe to
anyone who tries to argue with you or hide things from you. A natural mind for research,
detective work, and any undercover operations. Always curious.
Mercury Conjunction Pluto
You love all that is personal, secret, and esoteric. Vulnerability is something you appreciate
and value, and you love to sift and analyze what you find within the human psyche. You show
affection with passion and intensity.
Venus Conjunction Pluto
Organizational genius, especially when it comes to managing other people. You understand
what motivates others from the point of view of mass psychology and can get at the heart of
things in an instant. You have a great talent for social leadership.
Jupiter Trine Pluto
A searing vision that cuts through what passes for conventional religion. A vision of the
endless process of life ever being born afresh. Great acceptance and faith in the natural process
and next generation. Love of children and animals.
Neptune Sextile Pluto
Planet Aspects Page 12

You have strong family, business, or property ties which affect your public image and goals.
There may be tricky finances connected with your business or profession. Obligations involving

Focus
These are areas of life where we show intense focus and activity. For better or worse, these
qualities stand out and are obvious to all those who come to know us. They are very clear parts
of our character.

through all the externals and getting to the heart of things. You understand and appreciate
vulnerability and have no compunction about presenting your own sensitive spots to others.

Challenges
Life can be challenging, and things are not always easy. The major challenges in a natal
chart are where we can expect increased activity and personal involvement -- ready or not.
These critical areas of life can be difficult, and the resulting confusion and possible obscuration
often makes it hard for us to see and act with normal clarity. Therefore, when it comes to the
following factors you may wish to exercise caution and extra patience.
You could find that you are neglecting either your home and family or your career (or both)
due to your social and personal life. Relationships, working with other people, and making a
good presentation. Home life is secondary.

Talents and Abilities
Despite whatever problems we may have, there are areas of life where we have clear insight
and real talent -- natural ability. When it comes to these matters, our judgment is sharp and we
always manage to take charge. We have the knack. It may be as simple as the ability to work
hard and accomplish things without something going wrong. An innate sense of the workings of
these parts of life makes it easy for us to learn and accomplish things where they are concerned.
You enjoy working with your mind and can usually find a solution to even the worst
problems. You like to solve puzzles and dilemmas, yours or others'. Your skills in this regard

problems of the world, at least in words and images, and when you tell it, all are enchanted.
Dreams and images are your stock and trade.
Venus Sextile Neptune 0043'
You are very original when it comes to home and surroundings -- the environment you
build around you. This could also manifest in unusual ways of supporting yourself. Your
mother may have been quite eccentric or your upbringing somehow different. When you have
breakthroughs, they often come as insights into your immediate surroundings, home, and
environment -- your support system in general. This could also manifest in your finding new
and different ways to make a living. You may have new ideas about the past, history, and
younger people, find it easy to create an unusual environment, and enjoy surrounding yourself
with what is new and different.
Moon Trine Uranus 0058'
You get along well with older people, especially those in authority. It is easy for you to

Astro*Talk VenusScorpio Knowflake
convey yourself to others, and you always manage to make a good appearance. You have an
easy manner and find it easy to communicate with just about anyone.
Sun Sextile Ascendant 0212'
You work with real imagination and understanding in areas of the mind that are the most
personal or private -- depth psychology. You are like a midwife of the spirit, assisting at the
birth of each individual going through a spiritual or re-birth process. You accept the natural
process of birth, spiritual and physical, and have dedicated yourself to helping it along. You
would make a great teacher in these areas.
Neptune Sextile Pluto 0356'
Mass psychology (what motivates people) is something you understand. Your career may
well be in managing or working with people within a psychological context. You would make a
good teacher in these areas too. Counseling or helping people who are in crisis or working out
sensitive issues are careers where you could excel. You have a way of sifting through the
garbage and coming up with whatever is meaningful or relevant.
Jupiter Trine Pluto 0508'
You love to work with younger people and would make a superb teacher or coach. You
appreciate a heart-felt approach and are an enthusiast if there ever was one. You understand and
encourage emotions, feelings and creativity and find it easy to work in these areas. You value
drive and the ability to get things done. Matters of the heart, marriage, and the like are areas
where you can help others.
Venus Trine Mars 0636'
Your sense of responsibility is so well developed that you always end up managing any
situation you become involved in. You are disciplined, work hard, and are good at getting
others to work with and for you. Perhaps a little too serious and frugal, you enjoy getting along
on less. Essentials are what count. You like to keep to yourself and tend to avoid too much
socializing. Others may prefer keeping some distance too.

Landscape: Major Life Periods
What follows amounts to a brief overview of the first thirty years or so of your life -- a road
map of the years to come. Since childhood, adolescence, and early adult life are so crucial to
each of us, an attempt has been made to describe these formative years. Based on the gradual
movement of the planet Saturn, this is one of the most tested of all astrological techniques. It is
used by almost every professional astrologer as part of any personal consultation. Provided that
your time of birth is more or less accurate, you will find this information both accurate and
informative. Here is a general life overview, followed by a close-up on your current changes --
what is happening right now. First the overview:
Landscape: Major Life Periods Page 16
Astro*Talk VenusScorpio Knowflake
Your Personal Background
Although your early years may be somewhat more difficult than average (say until the age
of 14-15), you will more than make up for any late start by your outward reach and climb to
success in your mid-teens. Puberty will bring a change of heart and direction aside from its
expected effects. You will make very rapid progress in self-confidence and may well be a class
or group leader in high school. Beyond that point, your career really takes hold. The age of
21-22 will find you coming to social and material prominence, and any career moves will build
until roughly the age of 30. After this time, you should put more thought to consolidation and
be less outward. You will begin to turn inward, and the years until you are 37-38 should be
spent looking toward security and strengthening your position.
Your Current Situation
Now for a close-up of recent years: while landscape was quite general, the dates given in
this close-up should be much more precise. Life is composed of sections of time, each devoted
to one kind of activity or another. We go along for a while in one direction until something
changes within (or outside) us and we head off in a new course. Some of our earlier activities
dry up and new ones spring up in their place. What follows is an analysis of the time period in
which you find yourself now. Don't look here for a day-to-day account of life but rather to get a
picture of this stretch of time, "these years."
Aug 11, 2005 1st Pass D> (Age 18 8m)
The above dates mark the end of a number of years of hard work on your part, sort of an
apprenticeship. Now you will begin to come into your own. Opportunities will present
themselves. Now is the time to make that outward push and ride the crest of the wave into fame
and fortune. This is the best time you will have (for many years) to make progress, push
forward, and rise to prominence. It will be hard for you to do wrong, for all the cycles are
working in your favor. This is also a time when you may marry or take on a new role in the
community or with other people. You will be in demand, and recognition will be forthcoming.
Go for it. These next 6-7 years will find circumstances working to help you and raise you up,
push you forward. In summary, this marks a more outward and enjoyable series of years, during
which things will come to you easily. Friends and a social life are in order and, in general, an
easy and untroubled life. These are good years to grow up, be social, recognized, and so on.

The Elements, Modalities and Angularity
The Elements, Modalities and Angularity Page 17
Astro*Talk VenusScorpio Knowflake
Elements, modalities, and house quadrants. These are all techniques used by astrologers to
gain a general picture of how a person measures up. How do your planets and houses total up?
Which do you have in abundance, and which do you lack, if any? Those with high totals show
what we can or must do in life. These are qualities we have. However, most people are more
interested by what they lack or want -- their lowest totals. They tend to study their "wants,"
imitate, and even pretend to have them. The old adage is: we become what we want (or lack),
while we do what we can (or have to do). Here are your totals:
Your positivism lets you get right to the point, and you have little patience with those who
shilly-shally. You've plenty of enthusiasm and warm up to things and people quickly. You have
an inner self-confidence which burns with its own light.
Have Fire
You experience life mostly through your emotions and how you "feel" about someone or
something. Your intuition is strong and can guide you accurately in making forecasts or
decisions. Your sensitivity makes you recoil from aggressive types.
Have Water
You could have difficulty getting your ideas across to others, sometimes feeling inadequate
in matters that require logic or the use of your mental powers. You may have doubts about
those who talk too much and seem "long" on ideas.
Want Air
Common sense and the ability to deal with practical matters may be lacking, and you may
wonder at those who spend much time making money, doing life's chores, and attending to
basic necessities. You depend on mental activity and confidence.
Want Earth
A solid supporter, always gravitating to the heart of things. You may have trouble getting
moving, but once rolling, others better watch out. You have a stick-to-itiveness that always
finds you in the thick of things, toughing it out.
Have Fixed
Not a great starter, you may have trouble initiating things and getting them moving. You
may need help from friends or others in learning how to be more aggressive and outgoing.
Want Cardinal
Your energies run effectively toward making yourself felt in the material, tangible outer
world. You are an "action" person who gains the attention of others and seems to get things
moving. The circumstances of your life suggest extroversion.
Have Angular
You are inclined to do things from outer necessity rather than for emotional or idealistic
reasons. Your theories and mental activities may be fine, but you may lack heart or the
fixedness (or the necessary time) to let things ripen.
Want Succedent

Your Burn Rate
We all change, but the question is: At what rate? Some of us tear through change after
change, one phase following another, year after year, while others move at a more serene pace.
Or, one area of our lives may be hectic and forever changing, while other areas are quite
tranquil. Why do some people seem to live lifetimes within lifetimes? Here is an analysis of
your particular rate of change or "burn rate," including the particular areas of your life (planets)
where you can expect continued change and growth. Areas where there is a very low index of
change (indicating clear and easy use of the qualities involved) will also be pointed out. If you
have sometimes wondered about the areas of your life where the candles burn at both ends, here
are the details.
You have a high burn rate (index of change) and tend to run hot and fast. It is almost like
having many lifetimes within this single one. Things are always fast and furious with you, and
you seldom remain calm for long. Your thirst for experience and growth keeps you always on
the move. You work through an enormous amount of change compared to an average person. In
particular, the following qualities are areas where you have experienced and will continue to
experience much change. These areas of life persist in presenting themselves to you, so you
may already have become very experienced in them. On the other hand, they could be arenas in
which you struggle but have not yet attained mastery.
A majority of planets in the PAST suggests that you are comfortable with established
values. You know and understand more than you let on, and life changes seldom take you by
surprise. You have a great deal of control over your actions.
Planets in High Focus
The mind, and all that is mental, will be the source of continued change and adjustment.
Letters, writing, speaking, and all things having to do with communication and cognitive work
assume great importance. Your mind tends to be engrossed with thoughts, ideas, and concepts
and remains in almost constant flux. Mental learning is an area of preoccupation.
Mercury
You will go through a lot of change regarding personal values -- your ability to appreciate,
measure, and appraise things. You may find yourself preoccupied with possessions and the way
you feel about them. All matters of value, valuing, and ownership will be the source of
continuous learning. Issues of compassion, love, and care are areas that will require learning.
Venus
Your Burn Rate Page 19
Astro*Talk VenusScorpio Knowflake
Questions of attitude, approaches to problem-solving, and the methods for handling authorities
and the law are in high focus and are indicated by a high burn rate regarding your career and
making your way through life. Perhaps you will have many jobs or be forever going through
changes and adjustments that affect your career. It could be difficult finding lasting success or
prosperity, and the path to it may be areas where you have real experience and particular
expertise.
Jupiter
A great gift for definition and sensing the limits and truth of any matter. Your sense of
responsibility is clear and requires no training or education. You have a low burn rate here, a
sign of clarity and competence in practical and business matters.
Saturn
Patterns: Your Inner and Outer Self
Here we are examining your basic attitude or approach to life, what is called by some the
archetype or soul-type. If you know something about your particular soul-type, this can provide
valuable information as to the general direction and purpose of your life. In particular, it is
important to note the difference, if any, between our outer personality (the way we appear to
others) and our real inner self; how are we, in fact, as people get to know us? Not all people are
as they seem.
You are not what you appear to be. Your personality, the way the world sees you, appears
more independent and outgoing than is the case when people get to know you. An extroverted
manner screens a more inward and quiet-seeking self. In other words, you are much more
sensitive and concerned about what others think than meets the eye. Although your outer
personality may look tough and self-centered, you are more sensitive to the needs and feelings
of others than you let on. Whereas your appearance and personality may bring you unwanted
attention, the real you prefers to stay out of the limelight. Appearances aside, let's take a look at
the real or inner you.
Geo: Square Helio: Trine
Your Soul Type
You are the eternal patron of just about anyone who will let you look after them -- the
original mother hen. You need to feel useful and wanted and are never happy unless you are
active and involved. Always the host, you find yourself (in most situations) caring for and
taking care of others. In fact, you may tend to worry about others -- making a good impression
-- too much. Not content to let others judge you on appearance alone, you would rather be
Patterns: Your Inner and Outer Self Page 20
Astro*Talk VenusScorpio Knowflake
judged by your actions, by what you have done or can do. You are most happy when you can
do something for someone and aren't above keeping others in your debt. Your general sense of
concern for everything makes you invaluable when anything needs doing and, if left
unoccupied, you have been known to even worry for worry's sake. Given only a few facts, you
are able to take in a situation and come up with a real picture of what is happening. Never
happier than when fully engaged. You will tend to find yourself in responding to others. You
can always put your ideas into words and describe or analyze situations for yourself and others.
Chances are you will work in one of the many service occupations, taking care of and looking
after people. You may feel empty or that there is not much to you, particularly in a group
situation where you will not tend to be the center of attention or a great entertainer. Your mind
and caring attitude are what others find attractive in you.
You are born to love and care for others and may tend to worry overmuch. Your fear of
being left out or not being fully used up in this life can be alleviated by much hard work, by
jumping in with both feet and putting your thoughts into action.
Trine Type
The Key to your Inner Life
Each person has one or more key qualities. Here we are not referring to our appearance or
personality, but rather to our inner nature, how we are when someone really gets to know us.
Your most essential quality has to do with the very real love and compassion you radiate.
Your sense of values and sheer appreciation for life are communicated to all who come to know
you. Beyond whatever external considerations may be present, you exude a contagious
thankfulness and fondness for things and people. These inner, loving qualities are experienced
as a very real good.
Venus
In a word, it is your emotions and gusto that hold your innermost self together. Your
feelings are not just important, they are central to getting to really know you. A strong
devotional nature becomes apparent to anyone who takes time to know the real you. All else
follows upon this inner drive and energy. The search for a mate, and marriage in particular, are
crucial for you. You are driven to unite and find out what togetherness means.
Mars
The Key to your Personality
The key to understanding your personality and the circumstances in which you find yourself
can be found in the environment or support system that surrounds you. You are very much the
creature of habit and habitat, and the encircling network of friends, relationships, and what-not
are crucial to your success or lack thereof. You are nourished in great measure by the
atmosphere and conditions you are able to set up.
Moon
All things pale beside your basic drive and the emotions you so freely exhibit. Your world
revolves around feelings and the meaning you give to things. The way you feel about something
Patterns: Your Inner and Outer Self Page 21
Astro*Talk VenusScorpio Knowflake
is crucial, and if someone doesn't have the right atmosphere or feel right to you, they might as
well not be there. Emotions are the glue that holds you together.
Mars
The Personal Hot Spot
You tend to take everything with great intenseness. Your drive to get at the heart and truth
of things is constantly invoked, and serves as a common theme in your life.
Pluto
The main focus of change and high activity is your value system, your likes and dislikes, the
way you feel about things.
Venus
Interface: Innermost qualities
This feature is based on an intricate analysis of the position of a particular planet in relation
to the orbital planes of the other planets. The resulting series of crossings, or nodes, tells us
something about the nature of our innermost inclinations (Inc) and disinclinations (Dis). These
indicators are not to be considered at the level of our personality, but rather are deep-seated
parts of our innermost character -- our internal biases. These pros and cons are not apt to change
in the course of our lifetime.
You have much trouble organizing your thoughts, and your lack of discipline is a constant
hassle to both you and others. Study and mental self-control are not your cup of tea. You can
say things that are simply impractical and have trouble limiting yourself to ideas that are
down-to-earth, pragmatic. Some of your ideas are just plain irresponsible. Mental hassles can be
a constant headache for you.
Mercury Dis Saturn
What you don't love is the parade of emotions -- directness from others. What you do love
and appreciate may not be as clear to you as what you do not love. You are troubled by all that
gets too pushy, physical, and gushy. About this you are clear. Sports, ordeals of bravery, and all
that is too physical is objectionable. Given the world as it is and your predisposition, a certain
amount of emotional tension is unavoidable.
Mars Dis Venus
With you, dreams and ideals have become a way of life. You seek to bring them down to
earth and make them real. You will, as the song says, never let your dreams depart. Yours is a
path of imagination and vision, perhaps leading to a career in music, mysticism, or the arts. You
Interface: Innermost qualities Page 22
Astro*Talk VenusScorpio Knowflake
understand the forest behind the trees and the unity beyond all separateness.
Jupiter Inc Neptune
You waste a lot of energy sailing into the wind and clashing against authority or reality for
no good reason. You resent having to get serious, go to work, and take on responsibilities. Your
efforts tend to lack the determination and organization necessary for real accomplishment. Very
little can be accomplished without some sort of discipline and training, and you resist these like
the devil. You avoid work.
Saturn Dis Mars
You cherish whatever is different and out of the ordinary. The commonplace and the
humdrum are not for you. Your friends and surroundings -- everything around you -- must be
unconventional to the point of being controversial. You could care less what others think, and
this independence is your passion. The way you show affection may also be unusual, and your
partners are certainly nonconformist. You set a high value on being different.
Uranus Inc Venus
You hate a lack of clarity, especially when it comes to your feelings and emotions. This is a
less than ideal world as far as you are concerned, and you are for making the best of it.
Whatever dreams and ideals you may have had are somehow shut off from the day-to-day
realities you face. You would rather ignore your dreams than be tortured by their remoteness.
You are suspicious of pie-in-the-sky and have an abnormal fear of being deceived, in particular
in matters of love and feelings. A sign of emotional tension.
Neptune Dis Mars
Major Transits Happening Now
Astrologers use the term "transits" to mean the positions of the major planets that are
overhead (in the sky) right now and their relationship to our birth chart. Transits are very
important indicators of the current situation in which we find ourselves. They can provide
insight into what we are now going through. Here are the dates when the next major transits for
the planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are exact in your chart. Some dates will
have already passed and some are still to come. Remember, with these large planets transits
don't just happen on the day when they are exact. They cover a wide span of days, weeks,
months, and sometimes years, depending on which planet is involved.
In general, transits of Jupiter take from several days to a week or two to complete, while
those of Saturn take from two weeks to a month to play themselves out. With the outer planets,
the period of activity is even longer: transits of Uranus take about two months, Neptune three or
four months, and Pluto takes about a year. Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto move so slowly that the
complete transit experience may take a year or two to complete itself. So be prepared to work
with these situations.

House Activity and Emphasis
The twelve houses of the horoscope, particularly when they are occupied by a planet,
provide a clue to areas of special activity and use. Here is an analysis of house activity based on
planet emphasis:
First House: Appearance, Approach
The first house has to do with how we appear or the way we come across, thus our
appearance and personality. This is the essential stuff that bubbles up in us spontaneously and
that is obvious to others as our trademark or activity. It is what makes us each so personally
different. This house rules our personal self and everything about us that draws a reaction from
our surroundings or others.
First House
House Activity and Emphasis Page 25
Astro*Talk VenusScorpio Knowflake
Aquarius, the sign of humanitarian goals and altruism. Always impartial and nonsectarian,
Aquarian energy is communal (even global). The focus is on the goal, and the goal is always
one that is for the many and not the few. Thus this sign is connected to far-seeing visions, world
views, and group work of all kinds. This sign tends towards coolness, independence.
Aquarius
You have a strong drive to be seen and known -- to communicate yourself to others.
Personal appearance (the way you present yourself) is also a motivating factor.
Mars in First House
Your career may be built around the way you appear or present yourself -- the way you
come across to others. Your spontaneous personality and ability to fascinate others are key
elements in being successful.
Jupiter in First House
Second House: Possessions, Reactions
The second house is concerned with how we respond to or field whatever impulses or
unique and personal qualities we manifest via our first house. This is how we hold or "have"
things (possessions, material goods, money, and the like). The second house always refers to
how we secure ourselves, the kind of response we get from life and those around us.
Second House
Pisces energy runs deep and toward the psychological -- whatever is beneath the surface.
This sign is understanding, patient, and long-suffering. Pisces tend to absorb all the little barbs
and digs coming from outside. They always have their mind on an inner goal, something more
important. They are very forgiving and accepting -- giving of themselves for the sake of more
important issues.
Pisces
Third House: Inquiries, Communications
The third house is concerned with explorations, investigations, and inquiry and research of
all kinds. It also rules connections, communications, wires, tubes -- anything that we can get
through with our body, mind, voice, letters, what-have-you. It is here that we explore and
search for the limits of our life, whatever we are working with at the moment. A very mental
house, concerned with finding, furthering, peering, and all manner of questioning. Traditionally
rules short journeys, siblings.
Third House
Aries is the sign of the pioneer and leader. It is always impulsive, concentrated, and
spontaneous. Act first and think about what you have done later. Rushing in where others fear
to tread, the Aries energy is attention-getting. It always provokes a response from the
surroundings, from others. There is something essential and instigative that starts or causes
something else to happen -- a reaction or response.
Aries
House Activity and Emphasis Page 26
Astro*Talk VenusScorpio Knowflake
Fourth House: Home, Family, Security
The fourth house is where we send down roots, find our limits, and generally secure
ourselves. It is the end of any searching we might have done in the third house. Here we find or
end our search, settle down, and manage to get in possession of the whole situation. This is our
home and the base from which we can work, feel, and experience. This is the root of our
experience, the core or thick of it.
Fourth House
Taurus manages to respond, possess, and "have" just about everything possible. This is a
nurturing and fertile sign in that any seed or impulse is cradled, bringing forth growth and
development. Taurus is the way we "have" things, how we possess and acquire things. There is
something gentle, regular, steadfast, and determined about Taurus. Always accepting,
mothering, providing a base for... a matrix or womb where growth takes place.
Taurus
Fifth House: Expression, Creativity
The fifth house has to do with awareness, emotion (to move out), and expression (to press
out). Here there is always a growing sense of self-confidence and even a pride of ownership,
since we begin to recognize and own our experience. We know that we have had or are having
an experience. All forms of expression and offspring are connected to this house -- children,
animals, creative expression, and so on. A sense of direction and ownership takes hold at this
point in our experience.
Fifth House
Gemini is concerned with connections and communication of all kinds -- letters, wires,
telephones, voice, thoughts, writing, and mental processes in general. Gemini is the gadfly, the
communicator, the gossip of the zodiac. Searching conversations, scientific inquiry, research,
and so on belong here. Gemini energy is unattached, independent, and inquisitive.
Gemini
Sixth House: Responsibility, Work, Health
The sixth house has to do with salvaging and preserving what is good and healthy in our
experience. Here we separate the wheat from the chaff. We begin to care for ourselves and our
experience and thus health, nutrition. The idea here is that we are able to analyze our experience
and have thoughts about what is pure and what is not. The sixth house is an attempt to save the
heart of an experience, one that already by that attempt is beginning to pass or not cohere.
Sixth House
Cancer is the mother of the zodiac, always making a home, protecting and providing for
others. A sensitive sign where feelings and real experience count more than cold logic. It
doesn't get any more physical and emotional than here. This sign has a sense of substance, a
home base or foundation. Cancer energy is always limiting, bringing us down to Earth,
grounding our every thought in experience, in substance.
Cancer
House Activity and Emphasis Page 27
Astro*Talk VenusScorpio Knowflake
Seventh House: Relationships, Other People
The seventh house is the house of partnerships, relationships, social life, and all that carries
us beyond our personal self into an awareness of other people, community, and the like. This
includes spiritual awakening and the discovery that we are more than just our personality. Here
we begin to respond to our personal needs (and those of others) for the first time. We can see
what is going on and are committed to it; thus, marriage and yoga, or union, is indicated in this
house.
Seventh House
Leo energy is expressive, emotive, and concerned with awareness and a sense of pride and
ownership. Here is always a sense of home base or confidence from which the aggressive and
outgoing Leo energy operates. Often very artistic, and always theatrical and expressive, this
sign is good for creativity and the arts. Warm and big-hearted, this sign belongs to love of
animals, sports, children.
Leo
Your friends, partners, and relationships mean a lot to you. They are a primary source of
strength, and you always look to them for support and encouragement. You are indeed a social
being and will no doubt weave this fact into your lifestyle.
Moon in Seventh House
Eighth House: Business Savvy, Elimination
The eighth house, traditionally the house of death, is concerned with getting rid of excess
parts of ourselves that we see we no longer need. Thus this house also covers initiation and any
activities where we are transforming toward a more integral position, getting to the heart of
things. The no-nonsense quality of the eighth house makes it good for business ventures since
here we are stripping away the dross to reveal the truth or essence of the subject.
Eighth House
Virgo energy is analytical and precise, always separating what is worthwhile and worth
supporting from that which is outmoded and of no further use. A mental sign, where thinking
and examining are in high focus. Also, a different kind of mother, here an endless caring and
worrying (fussing) about just about everything. Always compassionate and responsive, Virgo
energy is service-oriented above all, often thinking and caring more about what others are doing
and thinking than for self.
Virgo
Ninth House: Religions, Philosophy, Ideas
The ninth house covers long journeys and religion (the longest journey of all). Here is what
remains of the purification that takes place in the eighth house -- the seed, or essence, of an
entire cycle of experience. Religion comes from a Latin word that means to bind back, and thus
refers to all things that last or endure, such as the truth. Essential ideas, philosophy, and all that
is the very heart of things belong here.

Libra energy is always facilitating and responsive, assuming the appropriate reaction or
response to any question or statement. What is sometimes seen as two-faced is only Libra's
facility at responding to each in kind. This is certainly the social sign, par excellence.
Impersonal and impartial, this sign doles out only what is demanded, never overdoing things.
Libra
Your mind and thoughts always gravitate to what is lasting, true, or of the essence.
Philosophy and religion are subjects that often occupy you. Your ideas are always to the point
and candid, never florid or superficial.
Mercury in Ninth House
Your love of truth makes philosophy and religious ideas a life-long habit. You appreciate
things of a global or universal level and could love to travel. Appearances mean little to you,
and you value honesty and candidness in friends and partners.
Venus in Ninth House
You are passionate in your search for truth and essence. Nothing superficial or ephemeral
holds your attention. Your intense analytical approach to life cuts through to the heart of things.
This directness may not always endear you to others.
Pluto in Ninth House
Tenth House: Practical Vision, Vocation
The 10th house is a house of practical vision and clairvoyance, for here we can see clearly
what is. Reputation and career are often connected to this house, since the areas where we can
see with greatest clarity are those we most often can put to use to make a living. In summary,
this house is where we have real vision and can see to do and work. Planets transiting this house
may provide moments of insight and clear-seeing as well.
Tenth House
Scorpio is the most famous sign. Intense, passionate, and very personal, Scorpio rushes past
superficialities and right to the heart of any matter. A loyal friend but a fanatic foe, this sign
does well in politics and all areas where someone who dares is rewarded. Often associated with
sexual energy, perhaps due to its tendency to strip away veneer, laying bare anything that is
there.
Scorpio
You are very career-oriented, and your personal reputation and honor are of the utmost
importance. You possess a natural sense of organization and practical insight and may excel at
managing or supervising others..
Sun in Tenth House
Your career, practical vision, and skills are of central importance to you. You are nothing if
not organized and deliberate in this area of life. Your reputation and image are a source of
concern, and you do everything you can to make them solid.

Eleventh House: Dreams & Visions, Community
The 11th house has to do with putting our visions and dreams to work. We have been on the
mountain and had a vision (10th house). Here we take our vows never to forget what we have
seen and to work hard to make these dreams into reality. Thus this house has always been
connected with altruistic and humanitarian goals and trying to set them in motion. It is the
house of friends and community, because when we are powered by a real insight or vision we
share with all -- irrespective of differences.
Eleventh House
Sagittarius is nothing if not direct, candid, and to the point. Sometimes harsh, this energy
always is concerned with the absolute truth of the subject at hand. Associated with philosophy,
religion, and all things that last, Sagittarius energy is always welcome in politics as well as
social and community endeavors, where its basic fairness and evenhandedness is helpful.
Sagittarius
You may enjoy eccentric or unconventional friends, and groups with some kind of
humanitarian flavor will appeal. You have very original ideas when it comes to community,
making our collective dreams into a reality.
Uranus in Eleventh House
You dream of a world where unity and harmony are a reality. Group or community work
with high aims (great altruism) would be ideal for you. Your imagination drives you to make
your dreams and inner vision a reality.
Neptune in Eleventh House
Twelfth House: Sacrifice, Psychology, Acceptance
The 12th house is about all that we go through in order to make our dreams into reality and
manifest them in the world around us. It covers what we are willing to put up with, the
sacrifices we will make in order to bring across what is really important. This is connected to
prisons, institutions, betrayal, self-undoing, and the like, because it is here that we must choose
to take some possible abuse for the sake of the message we are carrying, or blow it all away
with a negative reaction.
Twelfth House
Capricorn is the business energy of the zodiac, for it is the very opposite of the emotional
Cancer. Given to clear-headedness and practical insight and vision, this sign always takes a
distanced perspective, a cool appraisal. Logical and painstaking, Capricorns love hard work and
earned results. Money and things in general are very important.
