Extremely intelligent, very creative/ innovative - this genius is probably used to contribute to society in some way (6th house - service, Aqua - social work). More given to acting on the basis of rational thought than emotional response.(Moon conj Merc in Aqua)
Active mind, great interest in religion, philosophy - intrigued by the way the human mind works and how much it can achieve. (trine Jupiter). A psychologist, maybe?

Square midheaven? May not have known immediately what his/her purpose was - was hesitant about following this career right away. Finally, conquering this aspect by following his/her true path, transmuted the tension of the square to powerful energy that helped him/her achieve success and fame.

Mercury in Aquarius ... this person expresses himself in a unique manner, maybe a little on the eccentric side and sometimes rather abruptly. Conjunct the natal moon in Aquarius, they are probably detached and show compassion towards humanity but not necessarily to individuals.

Moon/Mercury square the MC ... this persons thoughts and ideas may clash with how others perceive them and create conflicts between how they express themselves and their career.

Mercury trine Jupiter ... maybe a tendency to exagerate but capable of expressing their ideas in a positive and enthusiastic manner.

Moon square Saturn ... difficulties expressing their emotions. Maybe difficulties with a female such as the mother.

Moon trine Jupiter ... maybe over reacts on an emotional level, compassionate.

With a 6th house Capricorn sun this person is hard working and dedictated to service. They may be involved in the Health field. They may be a perfectionist and very hard on themselves.

The Sun trine Uranus. They probably hold humanitarian ideals.

The sun trine Saturn ... they are determined and disciplined.

The sun trine Neptune gives them spiritual or idealistic qualities.

It's really hard to determine without more of the chart and without looking at the chart. I originally thought it was a teacher, but now I think possibly a military leader or politician.

Please don't laugh at how bad my interpretations are. I just know that unless I try I will never get any better.

PS. Come on everyone, be brave!!! If I can do it anyone can!!!

I want to add the Sun and Moon of the individual to the mix.

The Moon is 6th House
Aquarius
Square Midheaven
Square natal saturn
Trine Jupiter

The sun is 6th House as well
Capricorn
Trine natal Uranus
Trine natal Saturn
Trine natal Neptune

This individual is known around the world.

Give it a shot, don't be comcerned if your right or not. The only way to learn the ART of astrology.

Sun in Cappy in the 6th - Hardworking, takes work and the workplace very seriously

Trine Saturn - Great self-discipline and a propensity for hardwork

Trine Nep -Idealistic, honest, sensitive, a good listener

Moon conj Merc in Aqua - Intuitive, individual, unbiased, with a good grasp of the abstract and an ability to communicate the abstract more successfully than most

Merc trine Jup - tends to think in terms of the larger picture, macroscopic view

My guess is this person is a psychologist because of all the Aqua and 6th house stuff going on. Service and the greater good.

Moon/Merc square midheaven - don't know much about the MC except that it rules your career. Maybe this person was hesitant about this choice of career or didn't find it right away.

Sun trine natal Uranus - an unusual way of expressing her/himself. Probably very curious, likes excitement, needs a job (6th house)that doesn't allow for stagnation of any sort.

Combining the Aqua (people at large, intelligence, capacity for aloof observation); the 6th house (service, daily responsibilities); the moon conjunct Mercury in an air sign (active mind); Sun trine Uranus (curiosity, the need for dynamism), my guess is this person is involved in research to do with the human (or living) mind.

I'll post the birthdata, in case some of you prefer to do the chart yourself.

I don't want to say any more because I want you to let your instinct and knowledge of astrology run free. Why the clues so far are only a few of the planetary locations and aspects, I just want you to try to bring those together. I think that you will be surprised by who this individual is.

Good exercise Lanny

And great answers from everyone

Anyone "lurking" and nervous of posting????
Don't be nervous just have a go - it's great to get everyone's interpretation/slant on things. I personally learn a lot from new comers to astrology - new thoughts can be very enlightening

Be back later. I asked for a picture posting because my astro.com logon is full. Anyway, just another excuse to not type in data. I will delete a hapless soul and add mystery person X tonight.

Cheers,

Aphrodite

If I don't try, I won't learn, If I don't try, I won't learn, If I don't try, I won't learn, ...... *sigh*

Mercury/Moon aspects
Intellect diffused by subcouncius and feelings. Brilliant flashes of genius that may look obscure for public. Often misunderstood or out of sync with current way of thinking. Interested about human nature. (I'd even venture - more interested about 'big picture' - masses, class, etc than what made one person behave the way he did).

Cappy with 6th hs emphasis - need to be masterful combined with the need to be useful. Sun trine Uranus/Saturn/Neptune - idealistic powerhouse with a vision.

Aqua Moon sq Saturn - doubles the Capricorn pessimism. Sense of accomplishment elusive at the best. Loner at heart.

Mystery X Assignment
May 23, 2003

By Ms. Aphrodite Sky

Mystery X has the possibility of working with people through communication. This person is communicator, and apt to have very fiery and adamant visions for the future. Neptune makes a grand trine with the Sun and Uranus in the 10th. What she/he does for a living is probably considered unusual, and may be an extension of her/his spiritual vision and will probably be a recepient of general good feelings from the public, as Jupiter makes a trine to the Moon & Mercury conjunction. Venus in Aquarius right on the descendant indicates this person has more of a visionary approach to friendships and intimate relationships. As a result, the people he would naturally show affection to would find him erratic, inconstant, and perhaps even frosty in demonstration (i.e., hugs, kissing, casual gestures). Mars in Taurus square Pluto in Leo within a 1 degree orb indicates that this person will not back down from a challenge and will fight to the end. They will use their intuition, and psyche abilities to get what they want in all confrontations. There are several connections to Service in this chart. Humble service to others in this life, as indicated by Capricorn Sun in the 6th house. Service to the sELF, indicated by the Virgo North Node in the 1st house. The Pisces South Node conjuncts Venus on a loose orb of 6 degrees, hence another indication that the work this person does has extended of over several lifetimes---which involved serving others as the South Node is in the 7th House in selfless sign of Pisces.

You are all doing well. I definately see parts of this person in your interpretations. I'll give this a week or so and then post the name of the person.

OK... as I leap back into class, after some personal distraction... have to try a gut impression from the first bare aspects post is, point by point:

MercAqua: Quirky, idea-driven, independent-minded individual -- stubborn, funny, charming, possibly harsh and mighty impatient! A talker. Works in an electricity-driven industry, possibly the media, maybe a talk show host, a kindergarten teacher, a hospital administrator, an electrical engineer (scientist) who gives presentations, maybe as a technologist in a hospital ER. A profession aimed at healing and reform (natal Moon in 6th too), and the future. Aspects: emotions go directly out the mouth, nothing held back! Whatever moves them comes out of the mouth! Instantaneous reactions. Popular, involved with talking with others rather than talking at them -- not a classical lecturer's aspect, this is too personal, yet very public. Square Midheaven, their family background and career all involve challenges to ideas, and the talent of their gift of gab. Initial difficulty with expression and authority figures, a rough upbringing with verbal parental clashes, maybe over their ideas or comments. Lots of arguments, going too far -- and criticized because of it -- but this can develop into marvellous opportunity in the public field. Not necessarily going to a Rosanne Barr extreme, but a social politician of some kind, sometimes in the hot seat. Why do I keep thinking Oprah? Trine natal Jupiter is excellent for having the opportunities to take an interest in broad human affairs and progress (Aqua) combined with passionate reform in the area of human healing.

(Just watch, it'll be a football coach instead! )

Past my bedtime, I'll come back tomorrow and study everyone's interpretation then add Lanny's additional aspects, and look up that chart.

Hi Guys
Sorry I've not been around so much, have been very busy.

Not had chance to look at this chart but from memory Mohammed Ali has Mars on his MC.....and he is one of the best known fighters of all times.
