Birth Chart Interpretation for
October 19, 1946
INTRODUCTION: NATAL CHART
Astrology/astronomy is the oldest recorded science known to man. Much precious space has been given to recording the appearance, disappearance, and cyclical movements of the Sun, Moon, planets and stars in early man’s tedious efforts to communicate his history AND his ideas to future generations. Sumerian cuneiform script on clay tablets dating back over 2,000 years BC had texts correlating time (calendars) to the heavenly bodies. Many tablets also displayed some of the same glyphs and characters that we use today in astrology, while others recorded the close correlation observed between earthly and celestial phenomena.
In the seventh century BC, Assyrian Astrologers became quite sophisticated in predicting eclipses and retrogradation of the planets by observing their movements against the background of the stars and constellations. These observations provided the earliest body of knowledge on which the study of both Astrology and Astronomy are based today. However, this was not the purpose of their observations. The astrologer’s responsibilities were to provide their priests and rulers with favorable and unfavorable times for religious and social activities, and for the affairs of state. As a result of their efforts, a considerable body of knowledge and astrological lore was accumulated and recorded.
Early man gazed at the planets and stars and discovered that their positions in the heavens and their distances from each other were constantly changing, and that those changes formed patterns which were repeated and predictable. He observed that all of nature in his world was directly related to those changes. Confined as he was to a small patch of earth where even boundaries and limits were unknown, it is little wonder that he began to correlate the events in his own life with the cycles of the planets and the stars, and to seek to live in harmony with their changing patterns and with nature.
Today’s man, through the science of Astronomy, uses these same stars to guide him on his personal visits to some of these heavenly bodies. Astronomy also helps modern man to place his own stars (satellites) in the sky. Some of these provide forms of communication which would be as difficult for early man to believe and understand as it seems to be for some Astronomers and others to believe that the ORIGINAL planets can still communicate influences to man today. Since these influences affect only the feelings, and the individual does have free will to make his own decisions, Astrology cannot meet a “scientific test” of “repeated results under controlled conditions”. Neither can religion, for that matter, yet most people believe in some form of religion.
Astrologers have been observing correlations of “As Above, So Below” for centuries, resulting in a tremendous body of knowledge. They are constantly studying, comparing, defining, delineating, and recording these influences and their meanings. Today, sophisticated computers make these tasks easier and the information more reliable. Thanks to the diligence of the ancients for preserving the records and to the enormous capacity of computers to store and sort information, today’s Astrologer can cast a better chart and interpret it more accurately and completely than ever before.
The Natal Chart interpretations are found by computing the astrological data for the date, time, and place of your birth. Your chart is unique in its combination of planetary positions, aspects, and influences. There are literally thousands of variables in the natal chart alone, and each individual will usually have less than a hundred of these variables in his or her chart. We will print all of those which apply to your particular birth time and place, and they are what make you the unique individual that you are. We try to present this information in such a way that you can recognize and interpret the “blueprint” of your own “Personality Profile.”
There will be Delineations that appear to absolutely contradict each other, and there will be some that you cannot believe applies to you at all. Please try to keep an open mind and read the Natal Report all the way through. We will address all these concerns, and more, on the last page.
Astrology is not “fatalism”. “What Is To Be” is not necessarily what WILL be. The individual always has free will to make his/her own choices. Your horoscope reveals the astrological imprints upon your personality at the time of your birth. It has been up to you to decide which influences to accept and which influences to challenge. Personal growth results from those choices. Read the interpretation of your Natal chart and look back on your life. Is this you? Was this you? We think you will be amazed!
Given below is some technical data that your astrological analysis is based on. This data is derived from the date, time, and place of your birth, and is unique in that it applies ONLY to YOU.

YOUR ASTROLOGICAL IDENTITY
The sign which the Sun was in when you were born tends to give you your astrological identity. How many times have you heard the question, “What sign are you”? . . . How many times have you had people identify themselves with the statement: “I am a Leo, I am an Aries, I am a Pisces”, etc. . . . Many times for both questions, I am sure.
Practically everyone knows his or her own Sun-sign. You probably have also noticed that most people have heard some simplistic Sun-sign interpretations and they are likely to add, “I am a natural leader–I’m a Leo, you know”; or, “Of course I have a temper, I’m an Aries”; or, “Pisces people are naturally psychic”.
These generalities are sometimes accurate, but not all Leos are leaders, not all Arians have temper tantrums, nor, are all Pisceans especially psychic. Even when these simplistic statements are true, there are many more influences in the Sun-sign of each individual and many other astrological influences that affect that individual’s personality. If astrology were taken no farther than the Sun-sign, it would be telling us that we are like every other person who was born under our particular Sun-sign!
The Sun sign IS perhaps the most important SINGLE factor among the thousands of variables drawn from when setting up the horoscope. Through the sign it occupies at the time of your birth, it colors your personality so strongly that it usually can be recognized throughout your lifetime. It indicates the ways in which you express your basic energy potential and your creative drive to grow and develop as an individual. It is also one of the major factors from which you draw upon to develop your personal identity and self worth.
You have only one Sun-sign, however, and even if it IS the most powerful of all the stellar bodies, its influences are modified by the house in which it is found and by its hemispheric location in the chart. Its relationship to the Natal Moon is also legendary, and warrants special attention in the interpretation process. Even more modifications can be expected from the aspects of the Sun to the other planets and to the Ascendant and Midheaven, from what “Mode” and “Element” it is in, and by the house positions of the sign Leo, which is “ruled” by the Sun. When you take all these things into consideration you can certainly see that there is much, much more to your identity than your Sun-sign.
However, this popular interest in Sun-sign astrology does account for a proliferation of Sun-sign publications, and one can find Sun-sign interpretations and legends in literally hundreds of astrological books and magazines today.
In the following delineation of the Sun-sign in your chart, we have tried to include those influences that are most consistent in the interpretations of the ancients, the masters of astrology, and the teachers of astrology–as well as those of the many gifted researchers and newcomers in astrology today.
SUN IN LIBRA
The Sun is in Libra from approximately September 23 through October 22. Key words are harmony, companionship, and balance. Libra is ruled by the planet Venus, giving its natives grace, charm, and a desire for popularity and the approval of others. The symbol for Libra is the scales, and those born under this sign are constantly seeking balance in their lives–the key phrase is, “I balance”. Libra is a Cardinal sign, referring to the present, or the now.
Llewellyn George, in about 1908, said: “In Libra the Sun gives love of justice, peace and harmony. The native is courteous, pleasant, agreeable and as a rule even tempered, affectionate, sympathetic and sensitive to surroundings and conditions of friends. Is a natural peacemaker, just, kind, amiable and generous. Modest, neat, particular; loves art, refined pleasure and amusements; artistic and dislikes unclean work. Is intuitive and has objective foresight. Usually marries young and generally more than once.” (Llewellyn Publications, thirty-sixth printing, 1974.)
Max Heindel in his book, “The Message of the Stars” (Rosicrucians, 1927), writes: “Libra is ruled by Venus and is the seventh sign, hence the Sun in Libra combines the influence of Venus with that of the Sun and the Seventh house, with the result that the person loves the marriage partner so devotedly that he excludes everyone else; for of a person with that position it may truly be said that `the Sun rises and sets’ in the marriage partner. Libra is also the exaltation sign of Saturn and his influence is there at its best, giving an element of construction to the art of Venus. This is brought about as ability for architecture and the finer branches of decorative construction when the Sun is in Libra. This position also gives a fine, sonorous voice and vocal talent.”
Harmony and balance are the keynotes with your natal Sun in Libra. You instinctively understand the need to accommodate the interests and desires of others, and you are always fair and willing to meet the other person half way. Tactful, diplomatic and socially aware, you do all you can to avoid conflict and discord. You express a spirit of cooperation and compromise, and often achieve your goals through charm and discretion which would have been impossible to accomplish by a more direct, forceful approach.
Material things are not as important to you as is the human condition, but you are likely to accumulate things material, nevertheless. You also have a strong need for beautiful, harmonious surroundings and a natural sense of artistic style and grace, which is reflected in the way you dress, and the way you furnish and arrange your home and work-space, etc. Everything must be aesthetically pleasing and appropriate. Working with people as a counselor, advisor, consultant, negotiator, or in an artistic field such as design or photography would be fulfilling for you.
You are probably quick to initiate new projects or ideas, but usually seek the cooperation of others rather than continue alone. You have a special need for companionship in order to be fulfilled, yet you need to maintain your own individuality within the framework of a relationship. Marriage and partnerships could be a primary concern.
Getting along with others and pleasing them may be TOO important to you. You can become too dependent on others’ approval and opinions to be effective in making your own decisions. You will rarely act without getting the counsel and feedback of other people. You prefer sharing and doing things together rather than on your own. Being alone feels very unnatural to you, especially early in life. You have a strong need for a partner and for intimate one-to-one relationships. You have a special need for companionship in order to be fulfilled, yet you need to maintain your own individuality within the framework of a relationship. Marriage and partnerships are a primary concern, but as you get older you may become extremely self-sufficient.
When you do look for love, you invest a great deal of your energy into it, and you are very idealistic and romantic about marriage. You seek a partner who is your equal intellectually, and who is capable of a mental relationship as well as a physical and emotional one. You are a thoughtful, considerate friend or lover, and you enjoy the traditional symbols of love–romance, dating, courtship, flowers, etc. Relationships are like an art to you: one that requires time, attention, and creative effort. You appreciate a partner who is subtle and polished, never coarse or dull or blunt.
Fairness and equality, both in your personal life and in the world, are extremely important to you. If you fight about anything, it is often about something you feel is unfair and unbalanced. Balance is crucial to you, but you believe in moderation in all things, avoiding fanaticism and extremism of any sort. You have a strong sense of justice and fair play, and will expect your partner(s) to work as hard as you do. You may find your profession in the law, public relations, art, performing arts, or any partnership which requires tight, close cooperation.
You are intellectual and actively seek knowledge, new ideas, and mental stimulation. You are especially interested in analyzing what is going on in the society around you, and frequently play the role of peacemaker. You seldom express your own anger, but when you do–look out! You leave nothing unsaid. Your anger blow-up is soon over, but it usually leaves you shaken and ill. You have the strength of your convictions, but you care for others and don’t like to be the cause of their hurt.
You need to learn to accept that the real world will seldom live up to your expectations for justice and fair play. Life itself is just not always smooth, fair, and equal.
YOUR RISING SIGN
It would be impossible to even estimate the number of individuals who share your Sun sign, but just the opposite is true for your Rising sign. Only those who were born at the same geographic location and at the same exact moment of time could share the same precise second, minute, and degree of the sign upon your Ascendant. A difference in birth time of even a few minutes and/or a few degrees of latitude or longitude can alter the signs upon the houses and the locations of planets within the houses.
The horoscope is a circle, and the whole is made up of its many parts. The well-known Swiss psychoanalyst, Dr. Carl Jung, coined the term, “Synchronicity”, for life within the horoscope. Under that concept, the Rising sign represents the beginning of the natal chart as birth represents the beginning of life–the first part of synchronization. Like the horoscope, life is also a circle whose whole is made up of its many parts. Unlike the familiar TV beer commercial, however, we DO “Go around” more than once, and it CAN “Get better than this”.
Astrology, by way of the horoscope, symbolically divides life into twelve general areas called houses. There is a sign of the Zodiac upon the cusp (beginning) of each house. Your rising sign (Ascendant) is on the cusp of your first house, and signs upon the rest of the houses are determined progressively from that sign which was rising on the eastern horizon at the exact time and place of your birth. This makes your horoscope as individual and unique to your personal identity as are your fingerprints.
Some astrologers refer to the interpretation of the rising sign as the Mask we show the world–our public image. It is that part of our personality that we feel safe in allowing others to see. It may also disguise those facets of ourselves that we would prefer to keep to ourselves. Consequently, the delineation of influences from your rising sign could very well be descriptions of the way other people see you, though not necessarily the way you see yourself. It is certainly not the whole you or the ONLY you, but it could provide you with a valuable source of insight for enhancing your own self-awareness.
As you read the delineations of your chart, remember we are painting a composite portrait of your personality as revealed by the most prominent astrological influences in force at the moment of your birth. However, for each year of your life, the Sun has touched each point in your chart again. The Moon does this every twenty-eight days: Saturn, every twenty-eight to thirty-one years–and so with all the planets and parts within their own time circle. The ways in which you have dealt with the stresses and supports of your birth imprints and the subsequent aspects applied to your circle of life up to now will help to explain the person you are today.
Some delineations of specific aspects may appear to contradict others in your chart. Actually, there are no contradictions in Astrology–at least no more than there are in the human psyche. We are seeking a blend. It is in the interpretation of the whole chart and its application to the circle of your life that we begin to appreciate Dr. Jung’s word, “Synchronicity”.
Directly following your Rising sign we will interpret the influences of the signs on the houses (two through twelve) in your Natal chart. These signs are a natural progression from the Ascendant according to the house system used. We use the “Placidus” house system in our work. With this system some houses could enclose a complete sign, and there could be the same sign on two houses, but since it allows for the curvature of the earth, we believe it places the coordinates most accurately to the east and west in both hemispheres.
Those who have Libra rising over the eastern horizon at the time of their birth have a primary need for harmony in their lives. Venus, the planet of art and beauty, rules Libra. The symbol of Libra is the scale of justice, denoting a need for balance which the natives are always seeking. Libra is an Air sign, and the Venusian influences of beauty and the arts are bestowed in a light and intellectual manner. It is in the Cardinal mode, indicating sensitivity and receptivity.
You are likely to be recognized by others by your refined features, delicate countenance, and velvety-smooth skin–and they see your disposition as usually as pleasant as the appearance is pleasing. You have a primary need for harmony in your life. You appear to have an inborn sense of fair play and cannot stand injustice, dissension, or strife. You can spend your life trying to create the peaceful and beautiful existence that you so desperately need. Others see in you extreme sensitivity and receptivity–a sensitive nature which can be extremely upsetting to you when you find yourself in situations of disharmony and strife from which you cannot escape.
You appear extremely social to others, for these graces come naturally to you. A sense of harmony surrounds you that never quite disappears for you very seldom lose your charm. Good taste seems to be an inborn trait, and your appearance is rarely if ever sloppy. You love jewelry and like tasteful combinations of color and subtle scents. Your graciousness and sense of diplomacy are as much a part of your beauty as is your appearance. You are also likely to have some kind of artistic talent.
To other people you may appear somewhat phony or “wishy-washy”. You are a natural diplomat, reasonable, tolerant and fair. You are always willing to listen to varying viewpoints, and ready to see the other side of an issue. Even if you strongly disagree with someone, you will try to find points of similarity and agreement rather than emphasizing the differences. You often avoid taking a one-sided stance on anything. You have a strong desire for harmonious and pleasant relationships, and you express a spirit of cooperation, compromise, friendship and fairness. You want to be liked, and because of your need for approval you could be easily influenced by others’ opinions–especially when you are young. You want so much to please that you may often suppress your own unpleasant feelings in order not to offend others.
You are not seen as a loner, but rather to have a distinct need for companionship. It is particularly important for you to find the right kind of intimate relationship so that you may have the love and harmony you so desperately need. You need this partnership base before you can comfortably handle human relationships in other areas of your life. You could even compromise your own desires just to have companionship rather than to be alone. Be aware that you could have your needs met easily because of your nice disposition and peacefulness, and as a result, never learn to stick up for yourself. Sometimes, you may have difficulty realizing your true identity.
Others see you as an agreeable, smooth, harmonious, and “nice” person. Though there is much more to you, this is the sort of face you show to the world. You possess personal charm and an understated, non-combative manner. Your motto could be “you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar” for you usually take a friendly, cooperative approach rather than a strong, forceful attitude.
Compromise can be a positive characteristic in helping you achieve your goals. However, in the negative sense, you have the capacity for duplicity and deceit if your positive progress should be blocked for too long. You can hide deviousness behind your charming manner so well that you might never be found out. You are never an intellectual lightweight, and are rarely as simple and uncomplicated as you may appear on the surface. You should avoid the use of alcohol and drugs to relieve the pain of periods of disharmony in your life, lest they lead to application of your talents in negative ways.
SCORPIO ON 2ND HOUSE–Pluto, the planet of power, regeneration and sudden change is ruler of Scorpio. When Scorpio is found on the second house of finances, money and worth, it indicates a powerful potential for making money. You are likely to be resourceful and energetic in accumulating worth, and to have the ability to transform ordinarily worthless things into something of real value. Aesthetic quality in your possessions will be of extreme importance to you. You are likely to spend money as freely as you make it and to be willing to share what you have with others. However, you are not likely to suffer greatly for lack of finances.
SAGITTARIUS ON 3RD HOUSE–When this sign is on the third house of communications, thinking mind and travel, Jupiter, the planet of expansion and luck can broaden the philosophies into many fields. You are likely to be concerned with religions and the greater social order. You may travel often to new places and communicate with many different kinds of people. This is a common configuration for artists and writers.
CAPRICORN ON 4TH HOUSE–Saturn, planet of limitations and discipline, is ruler of Capricorn. When this sign is on the cusp of the fourth house of home life and domesticity, you will be influenced to keep your domestic affairs well organized. You will place much of your responsibility in your home and may do an unusual amount of your outside work there. There will be a constant struggle to get the domestic situation to meet your expectations.
AQUARIUS ON 5TH HOUSE–Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius and with this sign on the fifth house of romance and creative expression, anything can happen. Uranus is the first of the “higher octave” planets and it influences music, electronics, inventiveness, astrology, healing and genius potential. You are likely to be interested in things that are “different” from the traditional course of study; unique things, friends and group activities. Your children (of the body and/or the mind) are likely to show a blend of originality and mental discipline. In your artistic expression, structure will be a dominant theme.
PISCES ON 6TH HOUSE–Neptune, planet of dreams, vision and idealism, rules Pisces. When this sign is on the sixth house of work, service, and health, emotional influences are quite heavy. You are very unselfish toward those involved in your work, and need to feel that your efforts fulfill a need. There is a tendency to spread yourself too thin, and you need to take care of your emotional health since it can literally affect your physical health.
ARIES ON 7TH HOUSE–Mars, planet of energy, force, and action rules Aries. On the seventh house of marriage and partnerships, it indicates the need to be first and be the “strong one” in a relationship. You will respect a partner who can assert his/her own personality needs and communicate them to you in a way that your own identity is not threatened. You need a strong partner, and will have little patience with a “clinging vine” type. Both will need to maintain a high activity level.
TAURUS ON 8TH HOUSE–This is the house of needs, the primal instinct, and other’s resources. Taurus is ruled by Venus, planet of beauty, social activities, and the arts. This configuration on the eighth house will incline you to seek personal adornment because of your great love of beauty and things beautiful. You could have some unusual source of income, such as an artistic endowment, residuals, or an inheritance.
GEMINI ON 9TH HOUSE–Mercury, planet of communications and intellect, rules Gemini, and this combination on the ninth house of philosophy, higher mind, religion, publishing, etc., indicates much activity in these matters. You may like the orderliness of the traditional religions, but your active mind will encourage you to explore many ideas. You will like to discuss philosophy, and may even write and publish works relating to it.
CANCER ON 10TH HOUSE–Cancer is ruled by the Moon, collective emotions. This emotional sign ruled by the emotional planet on the tenth house of recognition, career and honors can be very difficult, very rewarding, or both. The extreme sensitivity of this configuration can enhance careers in the arts, writing, and human services. Inspiration, intuition, empathy and understanding can provide rare talents. You will want to share your successes, but any failure, real or imagined, will be devastating.
LEO ON 11TH HOUSE–The Sun rules Leo, expressed energy through leadership, and when on the eleventh house of friends, it indicates some very strong and powerful friendships, indeed. You will be drawn to friends with high intellect and creativity. You need their inspiration and they yours, so mutual needs are filled. Your friends may not be many in numbers, but in quality will be unexcelled.
VIRGO ON 12TH HOUSE–Mercury, planet of communications and mental powers rules Virgo, sign of order and detail. When on the house of hidden meanings and the subconscious process, much confusion and worry can result. The subconscious does not respond well to order and detail, and mental Mercury gives the conscious mind emphasis. The key here is to practice patience, prayer and meditation, and learn to let these three influences work together. What a wondrous gift if one could let Mercury communicate the subconscious matters of the twelfth house in the orderly fashion of Virgo to the open mental processes!
THE PLANETS: POSITIONS AND ASPECTS
Astrology recognizes ten major “heavenly bodies” in the Universe that radiate various influences toward earth, and thus manifest themselves in the lives and affairs of mankind. The Sun and the Moon influences are most recognizable because some of them are visible and tactile, such as light and heat. They also provide the base for mankind’s calculation of time–the calendar and the clock. Influences distributed by the other eight planets may be less visible and more subtle, but not less real.
These emanations are constant, but the intensity of their influences can be tempered by the sign they are in, the house of your chart in which they are located, and by their angular aspects to each other. We touched upon this in the introduction to the Ascendant when we also introduced the term “synchronicity”. In the following pages we will print the individual interpretations of each planet in your chart with respect to the sign it is in, and its house position.
Following that we will print the interpretation of the planetary aspects to each other. Aspects are specific angles between two or more planets that have been found to modify the influences bestowed. Technically, every angle between planets creates an aspect, but some angles are more significant than others.
Astrology divides these aspects into “Major” and “Minor” categories. Minor aspects are used primarily in astrological research and for very precisely directed work, so we stick to the Major aspects in our general work. The major aspects are: Conjunction (same degree), Sextile (60 degrees), Square (90 degrees), Trine (120 degrees), and Opposition (180 degrees). Don’t worry that some of these individual interpretations may seem to conflict with others. We look at the whole person, and the separate parts can modify, reinforce, or nullify each other.
We have pulled all this data together for you as it is displayed in your birth chart. This whole configuration can not be repeated or duplicated during your lifetime. Although the earth in its rotation around the Sun each year goes through all the twelve sign constellations and returns the Sun to its natal position, it takes Neptune 165 years and Pluto 248 years to complete their orbits. The planets are constantly moving their positions throughout the universe so that it is not possible for all the planetary positions and aspects to repeat themselves in your lifetime.
That leaves it up to us as individuals to deal with those influences imprinted upon us at birth and revealed through the horoscope. It is our hope, through astrology, that we may explain what those influences are and thus understand ourselves better. We have free will to make choices–choices which can affect those birth imprints in positive or negative ways. Probably no one of us will ever fulfill the “promises” of the natal chart in our lifetime, but hopefully, knowing what the influences are could help us to make some better choices.
PLANETARY SIGN AND HOUSE POSITIONS:
The following planetary sign and house positions are determined by YOUR birth data. There are 384 variations of these positions, as well as many other variables, but only 25 of them apply to each individual. The possibility of another person having the same combination of positions is practically non-existent.
The Sun and the Moon are known as the “Lights” and are not planets in the technical sense of the word. However, they are the most visible and perhaps more influential in affecting man’s awareness than all of the other heavenly bodies put together. The blend of the Sun-Moon influences, from the signs they are in, and whether they are in aspect or not, are extremely significant to the personality profile of the new life. The relationship of the Sun and Moon to each other by their position, sign, and aspect and their relationship to the Ascendant can sometimes provide us with an extremely accurate mini-interpretation of the chart. The interpretation of your Sun-Moon combination is printed next. Study it carefully–as well as the next three Sun and Moon sign delineations.
LIBRA SUN AND LEO MOON–Libra is an Air sign in the Cardinal mode, while Leo is Fixed and Fire. These two signs are sextile each other, which is usually supportive in influence. You are a noble romantic. Social idealism will be expressed dramatically or you could be “in love with love” half the time with a constant romantic and dramatic attitude toward life. You would be very clever in business or politics. You are extremely creative, but may have a tendency to become bored easily. Astrologer Grant Lewi writes, “You remember the pleasant and forget the unpleasant–an admirable trait in personal dealings so long as you learn by experience what sort of things to watch out for the next time”. You are likely to be very talented, and expressing those talents will bring pleasure to you and to others.
SUN IN THE FIRST HOUSE–The Sun in the houses represents the departments of life most strongly affected by individual will and power potential. In your first house it gives you a strong will, abundant vitality, and great self-awareness. This position bestows great initiative and powers of leadership. You are not easily swayed by the opinions of others, but have a strong determination to choose your own course in life. You have abundant energy and strong recuperative powers. Your energy applies to ambition for success, and you will work hard and long to achieve your goals. You need to feel important, but you need to be aware that you could also have excessive pride, egotism, compulsiveness, false ambition, and a desire to rule others.
MOON IN LEO–In mythology the Moon is always female–as the Sun is always male. In most ancient religions and cults, the Moon represents the female force which reflects the male force of the Sun. In astrology, “she” bestows her indiscriminative influences upon both male and female alike, though each sex might respond to the influences in different ways. The Moon in the signs indicates the emotional responses to life’s situations. It determines how you are likely to react to external influences and to the actions of others.
In Leo it indicates an emotionally proud individual with a flair for drama. You have an unconscious need to be admired and appreciated–and a conscious need for romance and affection. Your need to love and be loved is a healthy emotional drive which motivates you to continued self awareness and self-improvement efforts. You may occasionally have doubts about your own self worth, often interspersed with feelings of invincible superiority. It is the latter side that you are likely to show the public in order to protect your emotional vulnerability.
You are extremely romantic and sexual, and intimate relationships are essential to your feeling of well-being. You love challenge, and the thrill of the chase could be more exciting than capturing the quarry. You are likely to place the love object upon a pedestal to admire and worship. You can be extremely loving and self-sacrificing in romantic relationships, but heaven help the partner who should fail to show appreciation. If a relationship should become stale and routine, you are likely to seek a new conquest.
You are fussy about your appearance, and are likely to dress on the edge of avant-garde. Bright colors will appeal to you, as will sunshiny days. You like to feel bright, enthusiastic and up-beat. If you have a down day, you are likely to hide away and “lick your wounds”. It would be advisable to avoid alcohol and other drugs to elevate your mood–they could prove to be too effective, with the risk of addiction.
You are ambitious and have big dreams. Leadership roles come easy to you, and you do make a good boss. You are friendly, likeable, and do not fear the limelight. You may change jobs often, for the grass will always look a little greener on the other side of the fence. Your greatest goals may not be achieved because the glow and grandeur of gargantuan dreams could not sustain sufficient urgency for their fulfillment.
You may dramatize your feelings and appear self-centered, but you are a sucker for flattery. A little praise will make your day. You will want your home to be a show place, you are well-groomed, and you want your family to be at their best. Also, you do need to watch for tendencies toward inconsistency and stubbornness.
MOON IN THE ELEVENTH HOUSE–The Moon in the houses indicates the areas of daily activity through which your feelings are manifested, and gives clues to the type of activity on the domestic scene. In the Eleventh House, it indicates a powerful emotional need for friendship and group activities. You will have many acquaintances, but they may not all be friends. Your hopes, objectives, and motivations can fluctuate with your moods, which can be emotionally influenced by the opinions and reactions of your friends. You do not like to be alone. You need companionship for a feeling of emotional well-being, and your home is likely to be the center of group activities. You need to cultivate self-reliance, and practice being alone in order to learn to stabilize your feelings.
MERCURY IN SCORPIO–Mercury in the signs gives clues to the kinds of concerns that occupy your mind, and reveals your psychological approach to making decisions and conveying your ideas to others. In Scorpio it gives you an intuitive mind capable of profound insights. You see things accurately, but not necessarily charitably. You may use sharp language, but you will “call a spade a spade”, and will not mince words. If you cannot express yourself openly, you will remain silent.

Following are the interpretations of the planetary aspects to each other. Aspects are angular relationships between two or more planets that have been found to modify the influences bestowed. Significant angles are: Conjunction (same degree), Sextile (60 degrees), Square (90 degrees), Trine (120 degrees), and Opposition (180 degrees). Don’t worry that some of these individual interpretations seem to conflict. Remember–we look at the whole person, and the separate parts can modify, reinforce, or nullify each other.
SUN CONJUNCT JUPITER–This conjunction conveys a positive outlook, pleasing personality, and a generous, optimistic nature. The Sun’s power and will is reinforced by Jupiter’s expansiveness and good-fortune tendencies. You will be able to take advantage of your environment to make improvements for the good of all. Your optimism will help you enlist the help of others and spur you on to success in those ventures you truly believe in. You are likely to make your mark in the world by making it a better place to live in. Greatest areas of achievement could be in social change, philosophy, and group causes.
SUN TRINE URANUS–This aspect enhances creativity, personal magnetism, leadership, and spiritual insight. It furthers the inclination to studies of both scientific and occult subjects. Flashes of sudden inspiration may come from the ability to tap Universal knowledge. It increases willpower and encourages experimentation in new areas of learning and experiences. There is often a complete understanding of the oneness of all life, and a humanitarian desire to share that knowledge with others.
MOON CONJUNCT SATURN–In this conjunction, the Moon’s emotions come under the discipline of Saturn. This should not be all bad, for certainly emotions often need discipline. You may feel somber with this aspect, and that you are tied to past memories. There could be a tendency towards depression, since emotions do not take to discipline easily. The key here is to not allow yourself to dwell in the past. Cultivate healthy emotional friendships and direct your attention away from self and toward constructive goals and activities.
MOON CONJUNCT PLUTO–This is a strong aspect, providing intense feelings and combining a powerful will where emotions are concerned. It is likely to motivate interest in spiritualism and all matters pertaining to life after death. It will encourage positive change and regeneration, sometimes through drastic measures. Emotional courage and willingness to take risks to improve your conditions are indicated.
MOON SQUARE MERCURY–Squares present obstacles and this one can be very obvious in “squaring off” the emotions against the reasoning process and communications. It is difficult for you to be objective, and preoccupation with trivial things can block progress in worthwhile goals. You are likely to show a very nervous demeanor, which may be demonstrated by constant chatter. Domestic concerns can be an obsession and the subject of endless conversation. You need to build on your natural loyalty and caring feelings for friends, cultivating empathy with their responses to you and developing positive attitudes about yourself. Seek spiritual guidance and build up your self-esteem. Practice patience.
MOON SQUARE MARS–This square can cause you to take things too personally, leading to emotional outbursts. You could be too forceful and aggressive, and too independent for your own good. The aspect could even cause poor health. If you allow suppressed anger to build up you will be vulnerable to emotionally linked physical disorders, such as ulcers. Losing your temper, however, may not always provide a better alternative. Alcohol and other drugs can be especially dangerous because of the tendency to lose emotional control.
MOON SEXTILE THE NORTH NODE–This aspect indicates your habit patterns are likely to be socially acceptable and you will be popular with others. It is favorable for the timing of your day-to-day activities.
MOON SEXTILE THE ASCENDANT–This aspect bestows emotional balance, creating harmony between your conscious self and your unconscious feelings and emotions. It supports relationships with women–in fact, helps you to work in harmony with individuals or the public.
MERCURY CONJUNCT MARS–This conjunction gives you a sharp mind and lots of mental energy. You are likely to say exactly what you think, and let the chips fall where they may. You are mentally competitive, and will like nothing better than a debate in which you can demonstrate your superior intellect. You would make a good detective, or investigator, as you are very good at obtaining difficult information. Beware of heated arguments, and the temptation to express yourself too strongly. Cultivate diplomacy, objectivity, and reasonableness.
MERCURY SQUARE PLUTO–This square permits you to see through any situation, and may make you firm and direct in speech. You will “say what you mean, and mean what you say”. You may be secretive and suspicious until you are ready to make your move, so you come across as cunning and quiet. You can alienate others by your harsh words, and it could be better if you remain silent until the facts reveal themselves. You are strong-willed with this aspect, and you must use caution that it is not mis-directed.
MERCURY TRINE THE MIDHEAVEN–This trine indicates an unusually close connection between intelligence and professional ambition. It can give you ability to write well on professional matters, and to communicate well with those in authority. You think well at home and are likely to have a quite sizable home library. You want to share your intellectual and educational interests with your family as well as using them in your profession. Relatives are likely to play a big part in your domestic affairs and your profession. This aspect promotes harmony through good communications.
VENUS TRINE SATURN–This aspect is often found in the horoscope of musicians and artists; it gives a sense of rhythm and structural relationships in time and space. It indicates a sense of order, balance, and proportion in art and music. You are also likely to have a good business sense, also with order and balance. You are sensitive to justice and fair play and understand the needs of others. You are eager to help others, but you like to do it in a way that will inspire them to help themselves. You are a good friend and good partner, providing beauty and harmony to relationships.
MARS SQUARE PLUTO–Your willpower is highly developed but may lack direction. You will have a tendency to use force to gain your objectives. You find conflicts between your will and your desires from your spiritual aspirations. You need to learn to practice careful planning and to cultivate diplomacy and love. This is a very powerful aspect and when combined with reason, discipline, and diplomacy, it can provide the energy for great achievements.
MARS TRINE THE MIDHEAVEN–This configuration strengthens your ambition and determination to rise to prominence in your career. You are energetic and hardworking in your chosen fields. You are likely to earn the means to provide a good domestic environment for you and your family.
JUPITER SQUARE SATURN–This square can cause difficulties in business and financial affairs. You may have difficulties in planning and pursuing long-range goals, especially in relation to finances. You may have the tendency to initiate activities and take on responsibilities without sufficient preparation. You may feel as if you are never at the right place at the right time. You must learn to pursue long-term goals steadily and responsibly. Avoid the tendency to be overly ambitious while reluctant to take on responsibility. Remember that Jupiter is the planet of “luck” and Saturn is the planet of discipline. When they square off against each other, take the discipline first and apply it to all the fortunate circumstances that occur. This square can provide a positive learning experience.
SATURN CONJUNCT PLUTO–This conjunction can generate powerful ambitions, as well as the scientific knowledge to achieve them. You are likely to have a desire to “improve the planet” from an environmental point of view. In fact your ideas and projects could have a transforming effect upon the world. This is sometimes called the aspect of the magician because of your ability to channel occult powers through structured systems. You can be very secretive about your projects, but need to avoid intrigue and selfish motives.
SATURN SEXTILE NEPTUNE–This is a very positive aspect since Saturn, the planet of discipline and order, is supportive of the inspirational, imaginative, and metaphysical influences of Neptune. It can give practical form to the imagination and organization to occult group endeavors. It helps you get to the bottom of mysteries, and gives you the ability to concentrate upon inspiration. That can give you excellent tactical and strategic abilities because of the insight it supplies. You are idealistic, compassionate, and honest in handling responsibilities. You may be unrealistic in expecting the same from others, however.
SATURN SEXTILE THE ASCENDANT–This configuration bestows discipline and good organization. You are likely to have a serious disposition and strong sense of responsibility. You may appear cold and austere to others, but are likely to maintain their respect because of your integrity.
NEPTUNE CONJUNCT THE ASCENDANT–This aspect indicates a definite psychic quality. Your eyes could even have a mysterious hypnotic quality so that you appear to be living in “another world”. You have a highly developed imagination, but you can also have a superior grasp of factors of reality that others cannot understand.
NEPTUNE TRINE THE NORTH NODE–This configuration indicates an intuitive ability to understand prevailing trends in social attitudes and modes of conduct. You are in tune with the times, in other words, and are likely to profit through success and popularity with this rapport.
NEPTUNE SEXTILE PLUTO–This aspect has more general and historical connotations than personal, but in the personal interpretation it indicates unusual occult, intuitive, scientific, and aesthetic abilities. It could generate sudden and secret changes. You need to concentrate on the positive occult powers.
PLUTO SEXTILE THE NORTH NODE–This sextile gives you some power of influence on the accepted social trends, customs, events, and institutions. This could be a powerful influence if you are involved with politics, since it bestows an intuitional awareness of the motivating forces behind these things and how to manipulate the hopes and fears of groups involved.
PLUTO SEXTILE THE ASCENDANT–This sextile gives you good powers of concentration and indicates spiritual insight and clairvoyance. You are very aware of personal consciousness and the consciousness of others. You have skills in cooperating with others, and can act decisively with others or alone.
INTERPRETATION, PERSONALITY PROFILE
Getting together all the information that makes up the face of your chart has primarily been mathematical and scientific–in a word, technical. The computer has used the date, time, and place of your birth to select and print out the interpretations of your Sun-sign, your Rising Sign (Ascendant), the Signs on the Houses, the Signs and Houses the Planets are in, and the aspects of the Planets to each other. These interpretations apply only to YOU.
In interpreting the total Personality Profile, however, we must add two more dimensions to the technical: “Symbolism” and “Intuition”. These operate mainly from our subconscious mind. Allow your intuition full play as you carefully study the face of the chart and allow its symbolism to “speak” to you. Often the chart can provide a key which opens the subconscious. If you don’t consciously “feel” anything, don’t worry about it. Just allow the full power of your intuition to apply, and keep your mind as open as you possibly can.
Now go back and read the printouts again: all the way from the Sun-sign through the aspects of Pluto. Try not to reject any statement–not those you dislike, or even those you like. Note any statement which you strongly agree or disagree with, and mark it for later study. Then add all statements which seem to contradict each other to the list. When you study the “contradictive” statements, try to determine if any of them might apply to you at a different time, or in a different place. Then consider if the pair could modify each other and produce an interpretation that does apply to you.
Astrology is not judgmental–it just IS. It doesn’t tell us what is “good” or “bad”, it only tells us what the influences are. We give the most optimistic and positive interpretation to that information that we possibly can. However, it has been our experience that often the most valuable information we can get from a chart is the awareness of those obstacles and stresses we need to overcome in order to grow and fulfill our lives according to our own individual value systems.
