In Part One of the interpretations you will read two sections concerned with your individual traits.

The first section describes your ego (sun), emotional make-up (moon), learning and intellectual orientation (Mercury), relationships and sociability (Venus), and the expression and focus of your physical energy (Mars).

The second section describes how well you deal internally with the external situations that you experience in life. Your capacity for happiness (Jupiter), ability to tolerate restrictions and frustrations (Saturn), how you are associated with or relate to new or innovative ideas and methods, and radical ideas and events that upset the status quo (Uranus), how you are associated with or affected by public ideals, morality, and spirituality (Neptune), and how you are associated with or affected by public policies toward crime, toward the power of government and industry, and toward exploration, development, conservation and distribution of natural resources (Pluto).


The sun rules will power and ego. It is the core of your potential and uniqueness as an individual; who you are and what you are about. It represents the main direction and focus you want your life to take, and your determination to accomplish what you set out to do. It is your personal honesty and integrity, and the ability to command respect and authority, to impress and influence others.


As the eleventh sign of the zodiac, Aquarius represents the eleventh stage in the evolution of man and his place in the universe. In Aquarius, the individuality of man so carefully nurtured in Leo, now becomes part of the greater spectrum of society as a whole. Capricorn sets up the structure and rules of society, and Aquarius takes on the role of making the organizations of society function as the people-oriented institutions they were intended to be. Aquarians are the original "organization men" of the zodiac. Their societal orientation, loyalty, fairness, and objective nature are reasons why they tend to attract many friends and acquaintances in life. Though they are not above wanting to live well, many Aquarians are more interested in people than they are in amassing great wealth or taking on the responsibilities that invariably accompany such a life style. When they cannot afford some luxury, they rationalize why they didn't need it in the first place.

Aquarians are stubborn and resist changing their opinions or accepting new ideas that they do not like or with which they do not agree. Big changes in life are accepted as a challenge, but small changes that throw off their plans are not tolerated very well. The astrological symbol for Aquarius is the figure of a man pouring water. The water is seen as mankind's collective consciousness. It depicts Aquarians as disseminators of the spirit of humanity. Many Aquarians, in tune with their celestial heritage, are idealists who champion the highest principles to which humanity can aspire. However they are also extremely independent thinkers. When confronted with authoritarian demands or dogmatic principles to which they do not subscribe, they rebel. They may hesitate to take the initiative at times, but once they decide a situation or idea is worthwhile, they become involved and aggressive in pushing it forward. They don't mind being asked to do something but they resent being told to do it. Those who want to gain their favor will help share the work load without being asked.

Aquarians react to everything they experience in life with an intellectual orientation. Before they take physical action, before they assess the practical worth of something, and before they sort out their true emotions, they try to visualize it objectively as a kind of mental exercise. In relationships, their intellectual approach makes them appear interested but not particularly passionate or possessive. It does not necessarily mean they really lack passion. When they do focus their feelings, their passion can be as intense as it is inspirational.

The modern ruler of Aquarius is Uranus, planet of the unorthodox and eclectic mentality of mankind. The ancient ruler of Aquarius is Saturn, planet of restriction and structure. Such different characteristics seem to directly contradict one another, but a close look at the Aquarian personality shows that both planets co-exist in a strangely compatible way. Aquarians demonstrate association with Uranus by being unpredictable. Saturn's influence gives them stability. The two influences generally mean that when Aquarians suddenly change course, or do something unpredictable, they are not likely to be acting on a whim or a bet but for some very practical or advantageous reason. They favor the unique as well as the traditional. Sometimes they are either so involved with the past (history and antiques) or so tuned in to the future (spaceships and neon clothes) they lose track of the present. Exhibiting the stability of Saturn, they may live unvaried, even boring lives; feeling very comfortable and secure in such an unchanging, stable environment. Sooner or later however, they are apt to encounter circumstances that make it hard for them to know what they will be doing next. They often adopt life styles and ideas that are counter to current trends. The odd and unique fascinate them, and they are rarely caught off guard by abnormal situations and strange people.

Aquarians are good eaters but may not care what's on the menu. Most of them are indifferent cooks. As long as they can participate with a partner, or as part of a team they are enthusiastic about sports and, as a result, may not have trouble keeping physically fit. When left on their own however, they become lazy and reluctant to engage in what to them is a lonely series of exercises with which they quickly become bored. Broad jumping, camping, ballooning, tennis, swimming, racquetball, and baseball are some of their favorite activities. Science and engineering, international finance, writing, music, psychology or social work are areas of special interest to Aquarians.

Aquarian colors are silver, aqua, and purple and the more electric shades of pink and blue. Vulnerable parts of the body are the shins, ankles, and circulatory system. Cramps, allergies, sudden illness and freak accidents are common Aquarian complaints, though they may also suffer from various nervous disorders. The birthstone for Aquarius is amethyst. This gem is believed to confer stability and mental poise on those who wear it. Flowers for Aquarians are the more unusual blossoms and include the gladioli, tiger lily, trillium, bird of paradise, and jack-in-the-pulpit.


The moon rules desire as opposed to ego, need as opposed to expediency or reason. It describes how you feel about yourself, how you handle relationships, and how you emotionally respond to situations and experiences. It describes the flow of your daily functions; physical, emotional, and mental. The moon represents your residence and domestic environment. It rules babies and young children, your mother and other important females in your life.


Those born with the moon in a Fire sign want to turn their feelings into physical experiences. They do not initially view their desires from the standpoint of practicality, emotional commitment, or as a lesson to be learned. Before anything else there has to be action, some form of instant physical gratification. As lunar Fire sign personalities, those with moon in Aries go after what they want (or think they want) with passion and energy. They can soon lose interest in relationships with people who don't demonstrate the same passionate enthusiasm. Their adventurous spirit makes it difficult for them to settle down and accept the responsibilities and drudgery of daily routine. On a short-term basis they can become passionately involved with people and projects, but long-term commitments can make them feel trapped. Restless and impatient, they have quick, sometimes volatile, tempers. Fortunately, as quick as they are to get angry, they are just as quick to forget the incident that prompted it.

Aries moon personalities are dedicated to getting their own way, finding one means or another to accomplish their goals. They are meant to be the master of their own success or failure in life. Some of them relish this challenge, while others are all too willing to blame their mistakes on everyone else. Their easily aroused emotions can be dangerously misguided, especially when they act with undue haste, aggressiveness, or anger. Their dynamic self-assertiveness can make them resentful of all authority but their own, and aggressiveness can make it difficult for them to take direction or advice from others. They can become self-indulgent, overconfident and just plain foolhardy, or, they can turn into inspired leaders, and become tireless in their efforts to accomplish things in which they passionately believe. The spirit of their generosity can sometimes be overshadowed by careless disregard for the feelings of others.

Women with Aries moon can often be unflatteringly aggressive in romance and other situations that require a subtle approach. However, they are emotionally well-suited to meet and conquer many challenges that would destroy less hardy types. Men with Aries moon may expect too much and give too little in romance, but they are emotionally equipped with an enterprising spirit, and what is often a uniquely clever and original approach.


Mercury indicates mental outlook, intellectual endeavors, the way you think and communicate. It represents ideas, methods, and information. It rules your hands and thus your manual dexterity and mechanical skills. Mercury also describes transportation; that is, how you get where you're going physically and mentally. Do you speed with all possible haste or amble along taking a few detours here and there?


Those with natal Mercury in Aquarius have a curious, but usually compatible, mixture of characteristics associated with their thoughts and ideas and the expression of those ideas. These individuals are stimulated by unusual or unorthodox methods and ideas, which they are often successful at fitting into traditional systems. They have respect for tradition, but are also able to express traditional ideas in an avant-garde or unorthodox manner. They can be very stubborn and opinionated, while at the same time maintain liberal, unbiased attitudes. They are inclined toward design, architecture, science, finance, and, in some cases, music or literature. In the matter of learning and transportation, they can be unpredictable and, at times, highly original and unique. Whatever they do, they always seem to wittingly or unwittingly attract a crowd.


Venus rules your social attitudes and behavior, and your aesthetic tastes and inclinations. It is female relationships and social interactions at every level. Venus indicates your values. It describes romance, marriage and other partnerships, capacity for humor, and the pursuit of pleasure.


In social attitudes, behavior, and expressions these individuals tend to exhibit the essential honesty associated with Sagittarius. Their sense of social tact and diplomacy can be sadly missing at times when they blurt out statements that might have been softened by a little more discreet phraseology. However, those who know them well come to accept bluntness as part of their charm and appreciate the honesty with which their statements are intended, rather than the way they are expressed. Friendly, outgoing and idealistic, they want to enjoy a wide variety of acquaintances among an even wider assortment of people from all walks of life and cultures. Uncomplicated friendships are much easier for them to handle than passionate entanglements that, more often than not, leave them feeling hurt and confused.


Mars rules physical energy and efforts. It describes the strength and direction of the physical force that drives your ego, fires your emotions, and encourages your mental endeavors and communicative skills. It describes male relationships and associations, risk-taking inclinations, and the physical challenges you are likely to encounter.


The energy of those with Mars in Pisces is highly influenced by their emotional state and, too often, at the mercy of the environment in which they operate. They can easily be inspired as well as inspiring, and many possess outstanding creative and artistic talent. Their instinctive reactions are keen, as is their power of turning abstract concepts into reality. The problem they invariably face is that they find it difficult to accomplish things either because they are too lazy, or lack the necessary confidence to act. As a result, they can waste their talents and skills for want of a good push to get started. Many develop an inner strength that is remarkable. As if to confront potential physical weakness, they engage in high-risk activities.


Jupiter rules your potential for growth and expansion on many levels; physical, intellectual, spiritual, cultural, and the accumulation of material assets, power, and status. It describes your optimism and aspirations. It represents your father and his position in society.


Individuals with natal Jupiter in Sagittarius gain personal growth and expansion through travel, education, and communication. They enthusiastically participate in a wide variety of activities for business as well as pleasure. There is great generosity of spirit and attitude. However, if circumstances in their background or development force them to turn inward, they are capable of going to the opposite extreme, becoming miserly and withdrawn. The optimism of Jupiter indicates willingness to take risks, and it often includes the luck to come out ahead when they do take a chance.


Saturn rules responsibilities, restrictions and limitations you are apt to encounter, and the lessons you must learn in life. It does not deny or diminish imagination, inspiration, spirituality, and good fortune but it does demand that these things be given structure and meaning.


Individuals with natal Saturn in Pisces can become very restricted by their inability to deal with or let go of the past. They are usually denied the ability to learn very much from their past and must rely solely on the understanding that comes from maturity and the ability to accurately analyze relationships and situations in their present state of reality. The positive potential implies that they may be gifted mathematicians, musicians, and able to turn pure theory into practical application.


Uranus rules personal as well as societal freedom. It indicates originality of thought and expression. In society it rules radical ideas and people as well as revolutionary events that upset established structures. Uranus takes approximately seven years to transit one sign, taking about 84 years to complete all twelve signs. Since groups of people with Uranus in the same sign are separated by 84 years, the influence of this planet in a sign is generational. The personal implications of Uranus in your life are described by its house position and the aspects it makes with other planets in your natal chart. It describes areas of unpredictability, and where you or your life style may be different than those around you. It relates to the unusual or unique. Friends and associations to which you belong are also indicated, as is your potential involvement with science and technology, computers, and the media.


The generation of individuals born with natal Uranus in Taurus do not care to make changes for the sake of making changes, nor do they accept originality just because it is different. For them, changes and innovations must have structure and purpose. Freedom is encouraged if responsibilities are also accepted. The importance of theories are recognized but only to the extent that their practical application is considered feasible.


Neptune rules those who are oppressed or abandoned; the misfits of society. On a higher level it rules visionaries, and those who are glamorous and charismatic. It represents spirituality, mysticism, and ideals. Neptune is in one sign for approximately thirteen years, taking about 164 years to complete its cycle through all twelve signs. Since 164 years separate people born during its transit of one sign and those born when it returns, Neptune's significance in any sign is described as generational or historical. On a personal level, Neptune's house position and the aspects it makes with other planets in your natal chart will describe spirituality, abstract thinking, illusion, disillusionment, and other areas of your life where things aren't always what they seem. It rules derangement, guilt, persecution, and describes the potential for experiences related to confinement, abandonment, and addiction or physical intolerance to drugs.


Among other things Virgo rules the search for ideals, work and the labor force. During the most recent period of Neptune in Virgo in 1928-1943 idealism went tragically awry in Hitler's plan to eradicate all those he considered inferior. The National Labor Relations Board was established to reassert the right to collective bargaining.


Pluto takes approximately 248 years to make one cycle through all twelve signs. The period Pluto spends in each sign can vary from twelve years to thirty two years due to the eccentricity of its orbit. Like atomic energy (a force ruled by Pluto), the presence and direction of Pluto's energy are never obvious until it is used. Pluto's influence in any sign is interpreted as generational or historical. In your personal life, Pluto's significance is interpreted from its house position and the aspects it makes to other natal planets in your horoscope. Pluto rules intense energy, and describes the areas in which you consciously or subconsciously seek to exercise power or control. Pluto is also linked to your karmic responsibility, and in this respect, it describes the areas where you must gain the deepest level of understanding.


Pluto's last period in Cancer was 1912-1939. Cancer rules women and the family. During the 20's the attitudes and roles of women were transformed. They demanded greater freedom in society and release from the drudgery of domestic chores. As a result of the increasing number of women seeking employment outside of the home, family life also changed dramatically.


In Part Two you will read about the twelve houses of the horoscope. The houses represent areas of life in which you operate on a daily basis. You will read descriptions of how you handle the circumstances you encounter in each of these areas, according to your nature, personality and other traits as they are outlined in Part One.


The first house and the sign that rules the first house, which is also known as the Ascendant or Rising sign, describes your outer personality and physical attributes. To some extent it also describes your health and the type of illnesses you may experience.


A Capricorn Ascendant indicates individuals with energetic, success-oriented personalities, and determination to satisfy their personal goals. The shrewdness and open ambition associated with the sun or moon in Capricorn does not always show up so overtly in the personality of those with Capricorn Ascendant but these traits are present nevertheless. Most of them are very capable managers and supervisors, willing to accept responsibilities and positions of authority.

They strongly identify with the material world and tangible assets. Unless other factors in their personalities or backgrounds interfere, they are not likely to adopt easy-going, "take me as I am" attitudes. They feel more comfortable with formality. They want to be aware of all the rules of social conduct and adapt their actions to fit these structures. Consciously or subconsciously they specifically choose the company of people who make them look good. It is not unusual for handsome Capricorn Rising males to select less attractive wives or, beautiful Capricorn Rising women to select less attractive female friends.

Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, planet of structure, restriction and longevity. It is often an indication of a difficult birth or restricted childhood. However, it doesn't matter what particular difficulties life presents to these individuals, their biggest challenge is always themselves. They are apt to be disappointed with some aspect of their personalities or appearance and may develop conflicting behavior to deal with these feelings when they surface. Some of these individuals practice strict self denial, while others abandon themselves to hedonistic pleasures as a form of self destruction. They may even exhibit both types of behavior. At every turn they confront fears and insecurity. How well they deal with the conflict marks their success as well adjusted adults. Capricorn ruling the first house raises the competitive spirit and by no means dictates the presence of a somber or colorless personality. On the contrary, it implies individuals who are apt to possess overcompensating cheerful personalities, and they willingly accept responsibilities and hardships which they are apt to feel they were born to endure. There is always a choice to be made, and the right one is never easy because it usually involves success which must be earned.

Capricorn Ascendant is usually indicative of abstemious eating habits which help these individuals avoid gaining too much weight. Sensitive skin, finely textured hair, brittle bones, and dental difficulties are apt to be their common physical complaints

SUN in 1st HOUSE

Sun in the first house indicates those who consciously or subconsciously seek to dominate their immediate environment. Whether or not they actually do is another matter, since their personality is developed and guided by their ego. If the ego's ambition is not strong, then the personality is not likely to be assertive. No matter what the rest of the world may think of them, it is meaningless compared to what they think of themselves. Pride can make it difficult to accept advice or criticism. Though much of their enthusiasm and efforts are directed inward to the greater glory of the self, they are generous and loyal to their friends. Their energy and vitality can be very inspiring to those around them.

SUN sextile MOON

Individuals with Sun sextile Moon have a fairly easy time relating to others; quickly finding ways to identify with them on one level or another. They also have the ability to communicate their thoughts and ideas effectively and spontaneously. As a rule these individuals do not have to go too far afield to meet others, since most of the time these opportunities are right at hand.

SUN conjunct MERCURY

These individuals are apt to be very subjective in their opinions and ideas. Unless they make concerted efforts, their receptiveness to learning is going to stay primarily limited to their self-interests, which in turn limits their growth and progress as individuals. It is hard to separate their own ideas from others since consciously or subconsciously their egos have a tendency to appropriate everything. If natal Mercury is in a different sign than natal Sun, there is less chance of ego involvement and more mental receptiveness.


Sun square Uranus indicates those who tend to be highly eccentric, or at least have some eccentricities hidden in what others may view as their fairly straight personalities or demeanors. They may even surprise themselves by their own behavior and reactions to things, which are by no means predictable or consistent from one time to the next. Obstacles they encounter in life are often unexpected and may be unusual.


The second house describes material assets, how you handle monetary income, and the potential ways it may be earned. It also indicates the values and priorities you establish throughout life.


Aquarius ruling the second house indicates individuals whose material assets, as well as priorities and value systems are vulnerable to sudden change. If they have little wealth this influence holds the promise of improvement in monetary circumstances. If, on the other hand, they have many material resources, this warns of the danger these assets may be suddenly lost. Their attitude toward spending can vary considerably from one time to the next. They might feel very conservative for a while and then suddenly rationalize why they should go ahead and spend money rather than save it. They are not likely to be dedicated to making money for its own sake. The personal freedom that accompanies wealth is more apt to be their main goal. It is hard to predict what values they will espouse, but they are probably not very traditional, or at least go against the present trend of societal thinking when it comes to money. Sticking to their priorities follows the same unpredictable course as trying to establishing what they are.


Mercury in the second house indicates those who seek to benefit in some tangible way from their mechanical skills or their ideas and information. As a result they earn income through communication, sales, education, writing, publishing, the design, installation and repair of machinery, travel, or transportation. They are adept at picking up on the priorities and value systems of others. Being able to know what others think is important can be a valuable asset. It makes them successful opportunists, though it does not necessarily imply they are manipulators or exploiters. Understanding and being able to make practical use of networks of all kinds is often their most valuable asset. Mercury's influence in the second house can mean they want (or are forced) to deal with the paper work involved with income and money. This includes those who cut out coupons from newspapers to those who handle financial transactions, loans, investments, bank books and other paperwork for their family; or work as bookkeepers, bank tellers or loan officers.


Mercury sextile Jupiter indicates those who find or are given many opportunities to demonstrate their intellectual, communicative or artistic skills. Most of these opportunities should be viewed as chances to acquire knowledge or an education or to further develop their talents and skills rather than ways to gain immediate monetary success, public recognition, or other tangible benefits.


Mars in the second house indicates those who exert more energy and enthusiasm in what they do to earn money than in the actual pursuit of money for its own sake. They are apt to be more enthusiastic spenders than savers. If they do develop the love of wealth for its own sake, they can become so passionately dedicated to the accumulation of money, they never stop to spend it or enjoy any of the advantages it can provide. The influence of Mars in the second house suggests that assets may come through men or a particular male influence. Income for these individuals may also be derived through Mars-ruled enterprises such as manufacturing, sports, armed forces, fire fighting, and physical labor rather than mental endeavors. Mars represents animated life. Whether or not they are conscious of it, these individuals value energy and vitality as desirable assets and are attracted to these qualities in others. Unless others factors in their personality subdue the restless influence of Mars, they find it difficult to enjoy doing absolutely nothing. They want to spend their energies as easily as they spend their money.

MARS conjunct SATURN

Mars conjunct Saturn indicates a major conflict between what these individuals want to do and what they may be forced to do. In youth they are apt to have confrontations with authority, even though consciously or subconsciously they want order and structure in their lives. They are apt to hold in anger and frustration until it surfaces in unwise actions that cause accidents or other regrettable situations. On the positive side, these individuals have organization and a sense of structure and purpose. Administrative skills that many of them possess ultimately place them in important positions of authority.


Mars opposite Neptune indicates those who somehow always find themselves working in the dark, either literally or figuratively. They may simply enjoy creating an aura of mystery around themselves, or may actually act in secrecy, either legally or illegally. They may be confused, never quite knowing if their efforts have any effect or what that effect might be. There is potential for being either a victim or a victimizer.


For those with Saturn in the second house, the biggest lessons in life involve income and assets. This Saturn influence does not necessarily indicate lack of wealth. It implies that material assets as well as values and priorities, are a constant source of concern. Whether they are rich or poor, these individuals worry about money. Concern with money, however, is usually their motivation to acquire it, and few of them ever experience the poverty they fear. They are foolishly extravagant when it is unnecessary, and too prudent when a more generous attitude is needed. They may be so wary about being taken advantage of that they refuse to help deserving people or causes. Some of them overcompensate for such unworthy suspicions by being too generous, with the unfortunate result that people take advantage of them. Grappling with values, priorities, and money- and in the process learning what is really important in life- is the key to their happiness and success.


Saturn opposite Neptune is a generational aspect that is indicative of dangerously flawed thinking and societal attitudes. Deception, paranoia, and disillusionment are prevalent, and it is to be hoped that those with clear minds and courageous hearts have some influence. Abuse of the weak and underprivileged is likely, and individual members of this generation may be the victims or the victimizers in such situations or they deal with these situations in their professions or other activities.


The third house describes your mental state, intellectual orientation, self-expression and communication, early education, mechanical dexterity and skills, immediate environment (neighborhood), and siblings. It indicates physical actions, and transportation, especially within your immediate environment. To a certain extent the third house also describes the job or health of your father.


Pisces ruling the third house indicates those with developed intuitions and special interest in spiritual matters and occult subjects. They are apt to have high intelligence but also mental laziness, an unwillingness to explore areas of thought that appear to be too much work. A parent, in most cases the father, is apt to be employed in fishing or maritime industries, chemistry, photography, medicine (especially homeopathy, podiatry, or cosmetic surgery), psychology, areas involving feet which could mean working in a shoe store to being a dancer, or areas that involve minority groups, the disabled or institutionalized. He may suffer hypochondria, mental confusion, or hard to diagnose illness. Pisces ruling the third house may also mean individuals who are particularly sensitive even clairvoyant with siblings. There is also the possibility of loss of siblings, or siblings with drug dependencies. Illegal drugs may be used or sold by neighbors. There can be mental confusion, and it helps if these individuals spend a certain amount of time alone or in quiet environments, especially near the ocean. They like to use a pet name or alias, and (unless they develop a fear of water) enjoy travel by boat.


The fourth house describes your residence, domestic environment, and family members, especially your mother. It indicates the beginning as well as the end of various cycles in your life.


Aries ruling the fourth house indicates individuals whose energy and vitality are primarily linked to family or to some aspect of home or domestic life. This description can have a wide range of potential outcomes. It may indicate for instance, that their occupations involve real estate, interior design, architecture, or family counseling, or, that their business is operated in their homes. The Aries influence in the case of some of these individuals, may also mean fear of their parents or that one of their parents, most likely the mother, may be domineering. There is also the negative possibility of a volatile, sometimes violent domestic life. Fire is also a potential hazard. On the positive side, the Aries influence implies very active domestic lifestyles, and that their homes are likely to be designed or decorated with a distinctly masculine orientation. If given the opportunity, they will want to build their own homes. They may be the first ones to live in a particular area, perhaps as an unconscious reflection of the pioneering spirit associated with the Aries influence on their fourth house.


Uranus in the fourth house indicates those who experience unpredictable, unusual or unorthodox circumstances regarding home and family. These individuals are apt to adopt a very different life style or reside in a much different type of place than the one in which they were brought up. Choosing a dramatically different life style or environment may be deliberate on their part, but it is just as likely to occur as a result of circumstances over which they have no control. Other potentials include those who experience sudden separation from a parent or from home and family, and those who are forced by circumstances to live for a time under abnormal or unusual conditions. The influence of Uranus also suggests those who tend to favor odd or unusual designs and architecture in their home and its furnishings. They enjoy mixing the very old with the very new in eclectic arrangements. Everyone is welcomed into their home as a friend, and their home is likely to be the favorite gathering place for the groups and organizations to which they belong.


Uranus square Pluto only applies to those born in the early 30's. Their lives were dramatically changed as a result of the great depression that preceded their births. Their early years were shaped by this transformation that affected all levels of society and, subtle or not, it affects how members of this generation behave as adults. How subtle or great an influence depends on other factors in their personalities and backgrounds.


The fifth house describes your creative talent and imaginative powers, capacity for enjoyment and the pursuit of pleasure, romance, children, and speculative ventures.


Taurus ruling the fifth house indicates individuals with potential for raising the pursuit of pleasure to a fine art. They are apt to have merry, sociable and generous natures, with the capacity to genuinely enjoy the physical pleasures life has to offer. They may be just plain lucky as well. They may, for example, be very obese but dress with such good taste they manage to look good anyway, or they are able to move gracefully despite their size. They are apt to have such wonderful manners and personal charm others don't notice or become offended if they happen to overindulge themselves. They may be the world's great lovers and their conquests don't seem to mind being only one in a long line of romantic partners. A fifth house Taurean influence indicates artistic creativity and many of them are talented stage or costume designers, musicians, artists, writers or illustrators. They are likely to have wonderful rapport with children, understanding what activities will amuse and entertain them. Negative potentials for Taurus on the fifth house include individuals with problems concerning children or romance, or who have bad luck in speculative ventures.


The sixth house describes your job, daily responsibilities (paid and unpaid), and those who work for or with you. It also represents your health, and physical fitness.


Gemini ruling the sixth house indicates individuals who tend to keep very busy whether they have a job or work in the home. However, it doesn't mean they always accomplish their tasks. They can, for example, become involved with too many projects at one time and never quite get any of them finished. Or they may be preoccupied with unnecessary details or needless tasks they are convinced need doing. They enjoy work that involves a wide variety of tasks and frequent change of schedule or change of scene. The influence of Gemini also implies they may have more than one job at a time. It also suggests individuals who work as librarians, writers, researchers, teachers, trainers, physical fitness experts, or who work in communication, sales, or with computers. They may work or have interest in geography, geology, weather, stamp collecting, and travel. Whatever their job happens to be, they can usually be depended on to generate a lot of paperwork, reports, memos, and lists.


The seventh house relates to marriage and partnership or joint ventures of any kind. It describes how you interact with people and how others tend to regard you. The seventh house is associated with legal matters, negotiations, contracts, and all open confrontations, pleasant as well as adversarial.


Cancer ruling the seventh house indicates those who are often the beneficiaries of valuable assistance. Whether or not they ask for it, they engender strong, protective or nurturing instincts in others. When these individuals achieve outstanding success, there is a good chance it was not without impressive help from others. They are vulnerable to the influence of others, and though there are usually some differences between the type of influence a seventh-house Cancer has on males as opposed to females, the influence can be interchangeable in one form or another. In a male's chart, it indicates he is likely to select a wife who strongly resembles or exhibits the characteristics of his mother. He may marry a woman that adopts a mother's role toward him as well as that of a wife. It is also possible he will marry someone younger than himself. A female with this Cancerian influence usually exhibits strong emotional identification with her husband. She will be dominated by marrying a man with a forceful nature, or indirectly dominated by his money or status. Even if the marriage fails, she may have difficulty finding psychological release from her relationship. The positive side of Cancer's influence is the potential for close, loving relationships.


Pluto in the seventh house indicates those who feel compelled to control and manipulate relationships. If they happen to have an aggressive nature, they are compelled to interfere with other peoples' relationships as well as their own, not always with happy results. The negative potential includes those who are victims of manipulation by others including their marriage partner. Pluto's influence in the seventh house suggests individuals who consciously or subconsciously want to gain the first advantage where other people are concerned. They do not have a strong sense of cooperation or fair play unless factors in their personality or background encourage them to develop a more even-handed approach in dealing with others. Pluto does, however, imply justice in the form of eventual retribution. Sooner or later, they are likely to get what they deserve, both good and bad. Whether or not they make a conscious effort to do so, they attract people who are intellectually superior or who have more power or status than themselves. Other potentials include those for whom marriage becomes a continual contest of wills, and joint ventures or other cooperative efforts turn into power struggles.


The eighth house is related to taxes, debt, death, legacies, and the income you receive through marriage or business partner(s). It describes your resourcefulness, and your ability to develop and use material assets as well as personal skills and abilities. The eighth house also indicates sexual attitudes and behavior.

LEO on the 8th HOUSE

Leo ruling the eighth house indicates those who are well aware of their own worth as individuals and the worth of material assets. Their ego is directly linked to their sense of self-worth, and it becomes a viable, if sometimes hidden part of their strength as individuals. Many are shrewd manipulators of resources and assets, their own as well as others. They may be original and clever in finding ways to conserve and make use of resources. They may have little urge to promote what they do in a public manner, and may even fail to be recognized for their accomplishments until after their death.
