At the exact minute of your birth, the astrological sign that is rising on the eastern horizon is designated the Ascendant or Rising Sign. The Ascendant is how you dawn on the world, how you present yourself to others. If someone were to guess your astrological sun sign, they would guess it based on what you show the world, which is your rising sign. Its the characteristics and personality traits that you put forth for all to see. Its the stained glass window that you project outward for the rest of your chart to flow through.
Those with a Libra rising are typically sophisticated, charismatic, courteous, polite, graceful, diplomatic, pleasing, friendly, creative, affable, prone to indecision, and conflict avoidant. Being alone is difficult for you and you look to others to approve of you. This need may cause you to deny your values in order to win people over. You are also likely to be selfish and egotistical. Refusing others is not easy for you. You will try to evade any sort of conflict and require that things are always in balance harmoniously. Decisions can be challenging for you to make as you prefer to weigh each part of the equation equally, comparing and contrasting, before coming to a conclusion. Debates are enjoyable to you though you keep them conflict-free and pleasant. Outer appearances matter to you. You are lucky in that whatever you require seems to finds its way to you without you needing to put in much work. Making decisions, particularly in your romantic partnerships, is a lesson you will need to learn in your life. Libra is ruled by Venus and its placement in your chart will therefore be significant.
If the planets symbolize the forces and energies that happen in different situations, then the aspects between the planets symbolize how these energies work together and integrate with each other. There are challenging and easy aspects between the planets and it is up to the individual to choose how they are going to utilize the aspect energies for a positive outcome. The aspects between planets are said to speak to each other. Depending on which planets are aspecting each other and the rest of the natal chart, will determine which planet is dominate and which is not in the aspect between them. But ultimately it is up to the individual to decide how they are going to use the aspects of planets in their chart with their free will, in a meaningful and productive way.
You never seem to tire out emotionally and it is important that you are able to divert some of this intensity into other avenues so as to stay steady and sane. You find it difficult to be inactive and will usually behave in an intolerant, grouchy manner when you are forced to do things at a slower pace than you would like. You can be very moody and your anger tends to erupt with little warning. Compromising is not easy for you as you prefer to strongly pursue what you desire, despite this causing disharmony with your spouse or family. You have a strong urge to compete with others on even small matters, though this may not be apparent to you. You are self-sufficient and require the utmost freedom to do as you wish. God help anyone who tries to insist you do something or in which way you are to go about it. You are susceptible to accidental injuries due to trying to do much too quickly; be patient with yourself and others. Usually your demeanour is caring and kind, though at times you can be a harsh critic and are too outspoken about other peoples flaws or mistakes. Mentally you process things speedily and therefore you are likely to react with impatience and irritation when others are unable to comprehend things as fast as you. This placement bestows you with better than average health and recovery time.
Giving, kind, and warm, you have no problem sharing whatever you have readily. You are generous with your affections as well as your material assets. Limitations bother you and you loathe restricting yourself emotionally or with the things you own. Hard labour is not for you and you require that your environment be luxurious and stylish or you find it difficult to relax. Entertaining guests is very enjoyable for you and you can play the courteous, delightful role easily. Past-life karma bestows you with prosperity in this life. The only negativity that this placement may bring is a tendency towards being lazy and over-indulging yourself. It is also possible that you may be unappreciative of the things you have due to acquiring them with such ease; often we will value most the things that we have worked hardest to gain. Weight gain may become a problem for you as you may indulge in delicious food and drink a bit too much. You are a soft-hearted soul who enjoys the company of others immensely, harmoniously traveling through life creating beautiful things wherever you go. Be mindful that you are not gullible or ignorant, as you are susceptible to harm by your lack of understanding a situation fully.
You are highly imaginative and spend a good deal of time with the fantasies swimming around in your mind. Precognitive visions are likely to show themselves in this placement and you will be prone to idealism. You may find it difficult to assert yourself and instead prefer to just go with the current rather than making your own waves. Artistic pursuits appeal to you since you are a natural artist, though there is particular interest in musical ventures or poetic writing, as you are gifted in these fields. You are drawn to the sounds of the guitar, violin, bass, cello and anything else featuring strings. Due to your sensitive nature, you are sometimes taken down the wrong path purely by subconscious influence from the environment you are in or the people you surround yourself with. Your mind is often muddled and it might be a challenge for you to alter your inner self in a beneficial manner as you as lack the clarity needed to do so. Escapism via substance abuse needs to be watched for and can ruin you if you are not careful; saying no can prove to be difficult for you in general. Stability does not come naturally. Do not dabble in unwholesome mystical practices such as the calling forth of spirits; you never know what trouble you may find yourself in spiritually for doing so. Mentally, you follow an abstract way of reasoning rather than the step-by-step pattern that others are prone to, and therefore you may find it difficult to communicate your own thoughts out loud. It is probably easier for you to convey your feelings in artistic pursuits or through the written word instead. Traditional education is probably not the best way for you to learn and you would do well having a teacher that can instruct you by example instead. You quickly pick up on hints and vibrations, although it can be tough for you to decipher what the actual meaning is behind them due to your inclination to let your imagination run away with you. There is likely to be trouble with focusing on daily life responsibilities or with figuring out the difference between fact and fantasy. You are prone to ponder the existence of other realms. Taking photographs may be an enjoyable hobby. Due to your high sensitivity, there is a nervousness and tension inside of you that make it necessary for you to retreat into seclusion for short periods on a daily basis to reset. Many authors, artists, and performers share this placement.
Mentally you are responsive, unique, perceptive, imaginative, and think on your feet. You can do well to channel your energies into inventing something progressive or unusual and you are drawn to mystical subjects. Astrology or technological topics fascinate you. Your sense of humour is a bit eccentric at times and you may behave in a surprising manner or poke fun at yourself just to get others to react. You feel a strong pull towards intensely emotive circumstances or anything thrilling and different. You demand your independence and hate to be tied down to anything that will limit it. However, you are often forced to adapt quickly to a variety of different circumstances that can pop up at random for you. Your notions are usually fresh and innovative, and usually can be applied in a way that would strongly benefit humanity. You are also able to view every aspect of a situation fairly. Although, you are often impatient, get bored easily, and do not finish what you have started. Others find you amusing and unique, and you are usually very lucky. Whatever is a deviation from the norm will tend to draw you in, for you seek the exhilaration of trying something you have not experienced before. You are able to see the benefit in monitoring your temper and feelings.
You are an inventive, progressive, mentally quick, artistic, untraditional, intuitive non-conformist who feels comfortable being an eccentric, rebellious activist for change. Highly self-sufficient, you resent others giving you orders in any form. You can be inflexible when it comes to taking other peoples desires into consideration. It is imperative that you are able to live your life in a way where you have complete freedom. Deep down you believe you are unlike the normal crowd, perhaps even as though you are of a different species or from the wrong time period. You will rebel when you feel as though someone is trying to control you, particularly in a romantic partnership. You tend to run on a high frequency and can suffer from anxiety and nervousness. Relaxation is essential, as is channelling your inner tension creatively, in order to remain centred. You easily pick up on things that others may misshints, vibrations, and the like; your intuition is excellent. You trust your gut instincts to guide you. You are talented in finding ways to progress outdated systems. The brilliant mastermind within can be best expressed through discipline, self-restraint, and persistence.
You have a great deal of ambition and drive to succeed, but you often doubt yourself. You lack confidence in your abilities and are unsure whether others are going to respond to you positively. You have no faith in yourself to overcome lifes obstacles which is why you often work yourself to the bone trying to demonstrate that you are worthy. You are highly insecure and are scared that you will fail. Often you cling to the things you have because you feel that somehow they will be gone tomorrow. It is hard for you to bond with others as you tend to keep your emotions bottled up. Instead, you attempt to purchase peoples love and loyalty. However, that is not possible; you need to acquire this with a genuine connection. How can people see the wonderful things within you if you cannot see them yourself? Your insecurities are so pronounced that when you are close to someone, you require them to consistently reassure you that they care for you, leaving the relationship strained in the end. Perhaps re-think your idea of what it means to be emotionally secure. Deep down you believe that you need to be someone else so that people will accept you or care for you. Many times you feel as though you are the odd one out in a group situation and will act cold and reserved, when the truth is that it is actually very important to you that you are involved equally. Due to your sensitivity, you are likely to wall up and refuse to let anyone in instead of facing the possible hurts and vulnerability that may surface by opening up to someone deeply.
Being cautious and keeping yourself closed off emotionally makes it a challenge to form a bond with someone. Taking time for yourself to reflect and work on personal growth can help you become stronger emotionally as well as allow you to feel more secure, however you need to defeat the tendency to view isolation as rejection and the lonely feeling that comes along with that perspective. You are prone to feeling anxious, irritated, and depressed at times. It seems as though somehow life always throws a wrench in the works when you are trying to achieve something. You may feel like the universe is working in opposition to your best efforts and that you alone must do the heavy lifting for humanity. You are not living this life by yourself, there are others around willing to help you and care for you if only you would let them in. In a past life, you expressed your feelings in an open and loving manner and were cast off because of it. Now you are scared to try again, instinctively believing that somehow you will be disregarded and hurt once more. Your perspective on how to become emotionally secure is incorrect; it is not about others and what they do or dont do, but about how you see things. Despite your cool, reserved demeanour, inwardly you are very caring and crave to love and be loved. Of course there is a chance that your feelings may be harmed, but that is part of life and each painful experience can help you grow if you allow it to.
This placement stands out amongst the others as it has a particularly strong influence. At your best, you gain wisdom by going through something yourself, as even when you do something wrong the information you have gained will carry you. During the most emotionally difficult times in your life, you find a way to rise back up; nothing can keep you down for long and you persevere through your challenges. You are greatly aided by the mental drive this placement bestows.
Those born in your generation have the ability to be of aid to humanity as a whole. Let your intuition guide you in assisting others.
You are brave, self-confident, full of energy, driven, and optimistic. Competing with others is enjoyable for you and you tend to win using your confidence and intuition. Your strong will has allowed you to learn self-discipline, creating a force that permits you to rise to truly powerful positions. Your physical health is amazing as you heal easily and have endless amounts of energy. However, it is important that you are able to keep active physically or this immense energy of yours will turn destructive. Every effort is made on your part to achieve success in an honourable fashion. You are likely to be a good leader and have a talent for administrating. Hard-working, courageous, and assertive, you gain the admiration of others and will champion for them if they are being unjustly treated.
You are spontaneous, responsive, and innovative with an active vitality and ability to make confident decisions with ease. The mundane daily schedule of life is unappealing to you and if forced to endure this monotonous ordeal day in and day out, you are likely to feel trapped. You need something to be happening, something new and different, especially if it is a type of activity where you can express your agility and well-timed pace; relaxation may be a challenge for you as you require being constantly active. Much of your energy may come from the high-strung nerves you possess and the internal restlessness you feel regularly. You strive to be a part of projects that require reforming a system or changing tradition somehow. Highly self-sufficient, you dislike having to answer to anyone and need a great deal of space to get into whatever tickles your fancy at the moment. You are often the leader in whatever endeavours you start on, providing inspirational guidance to those working with you. However, you are not one to listen when others try to advise you; you feel you must go through the situation yourself to comprehend it fully and then come to your own conclusions and observations, even if this can be destructive at times. Previous life karma is good and you have been able to keep your temper and impulses relatively balanced. Continue on the path you have started in your past; your intuitive nature serves you well. You can be rebellious when given instruction, however you also sense when it is important for you follow without causing issue. Though you work to create change, you are keen to observe when the price of change may be too high. You have a magnetic personality that draws others to you and when you lead, you do not do so because you are power-hungry but rather because you have great insight into what is likely to happen and how best to maneuver the situation to succeed. Often your life is full of unexpected and rather strange circumstances, though you do not mind having to handle them as you are always up for enhancing your abilities.
You are faithful and dedicated in your relationships. Peoples emotions are treated with care, as you would never toy with their feelings. Loyalty is very important to you. You prefer to be secure and are usually confident in your abilities; insecure feelings do not seem to be an issue for you at all. However, you can hold back a bit when expressing your love for another because you wish to be certain that the person is trustworthy. You are modest, and while you enjoy beautiful and lavish surroundings, you do not require them for your happiness. Who someone is on the inside is more valuable to you than what they look like. You want a deep, meaningful relationship and shallow partnerships hold no interest for you. Innately, you comprehend that true love takes time to unfold and becomes stronger the longer you are involved with someone. Friendship is taken seriously as well and you are a loyal, steady friend. One of your best traits is that you are emotionally stable. You are naturally responsible with those you care for and can be very dutiful to them. Self-restraint is not a problem for you and no one would ever consider you a wild child by any means. However, people value the amazing abilities you bring to the table. Inside of you is a very strong individual capable of persevering through even the toughest of challenges.
Mentally you are capable of delving into the most hidden of depths. Whether or not they are pleasant, you will uncover whatever secrets are buried beneath. You would make an excellent investigator as you are naturally gifted in the field. Psychological evaluation is another area that you are talented in and there is a strong interest in topics related to the afterlife and mystical studies. You are the sort that will learn one thing thoroughly rather than dabbling briefly all over the map. Despite your expectation that others be transparent with you, you are unwilling to provide the same disclosure to them. You feel most comfortable in situations where the attention is not focused on you and you can do as you please with little interference from others. You are capable of using your hands to heal others if you can properly channel your energies and may do well to try your efforts in massage therapy or chiropractic care. You find a kind of comfort in disassembling and reassembling things, as you have good technical skills and like to see how everything works together. You are drawn to situations, people, or subjects that project a mysterious quality and you are always up for the challenge of figuring them out. When you do come to a conclusion, you are able to clearly express what you have learned. You use your logical, analytical mind and intuitive ability to assess everything that you come across. Mentally you strive to transform and transcend whatever you find. Other people easily recognise your confident dedication to the things you do. If you are interested in a topic, you are able to focus yourself completely in order to absorb any and all information pertaining to it. Highly observant, nothing gets passed you and you are amazingly accurate in your evaluations of the circumstances you find yourself in and the people you come across.
Creativity comes easily to you and you are most successful at reaching your aims when those you care for are there to encourage you. You are able to find a perfect balance between independence and connecting with others. You are self-sufficient, doing just fine alone whenever needed. Previous lives were used to master your emotional reactions and they are now harmonious. Good karma draws good fortune to you in all aspects: status, home-life, friendship, respect, healthiness, and monetary assets. Naturally capable and talented, you soar to the top either by gaining the respect and admiration of those in high places who will aid you on your journey, or you yourself find an area of expertise where you create your own success. Both the external and internal forces at work for you are blended harmoniously, making your life a bit easier than it could otherwise be. All of your challenges are aided by this aspect and despite the obstacles, you will find tranquillity.
The Planets in astrology symbolize what is being addressed. They behave as actors in a production. What is happening on stage? The signs in astrology are the way that the actors behave on stage. They ask the question how? How is the planet motivated? How are they living their life, in their highest good or in their shadow? The signs describe in detail how the actor might react, behave or conduct themselves.
Sagittarians are sociable, adaptable, positive, trustworthy, truthful, and prone to idealism (learn about compatibility with Sagittarius here). On the other hand they are also capable of being blunt, egotistical, smug, argumentative, obsessive, narrow-minded authoritarian show-offs who skirt their responsibilities. Working with details is not their forte and they prefer something which allows them to use their excellent forward thinking skills and fearlessness towards risk.
Sagittarians can convey their strong opinions forcefully and in a tactless manner at times, speaking their minds often without thinking things through first. This tendency is usually caused by their need to obtain the truth and gain knowledge. Sagittarians can come across a bit abrasive while they believe they are only stating the truth. It would do them well to develop more diplomatic tactics rather than bulldozing other peoples views or feelings in order to make their points. Luckily, most people are intuitively aware that the Sagittarius has good intentions at heart and only wishes to enlighten them.
Nature, in all aspects, appeals to the Sagittarius as they enjoy spending time outside. They have large amounts of energy that needs to be released and playing sports is a good way for them to do this. They are likely to enjoy sports even when they are not the ones playing in them and may need to watch out for a tendency to spend their savings frivolously on spontaneous bets. Traveling or walking may also be a favourite pastime due to their need for freedom and they relish time spent with animals, especially the larger variety.
Sagittarians are deep-thinking individuals who enjoy pondering the meaning of life and various philosophies. Despite whatever odds they may be facing, Sagittarians will bounce back to their positive selves quickly; they have a strong belief in the universe and that things will somehow work out as they are meant to. They strive to comprehend their existence and grow in wisdom. This need to develop themselves can manifest as the Sagittarian trying to do too much too quickly and possibly burning out instead. It would be best for them to learn to pace themselves and take time to relax before starting new assignments.
Sagittarians would benefit from developing a way to focus on their endeavours until they are complete as it is common for them to become bored and restless once the initial enthusiasm wears off. In the beginning, they are full of energy and excitement which spurs them forward, but the menial tasks drain them.
The health of a Sagittarius is usually good, though they may have issues with extravagant cuisine or beverages, and too much of them!
Sagittarians are regarded as out-going, are always ready to lend a helping hand, and though they can be very blunt in their communication, their jokes can be rather understated at times. They can keep a conversation going and may at times argue with others just to argue. This does not keep them from gathering acquaintances wherever they go. Sagittarians are likely interested in philanthropy in some way and will convey these interests practically. They are quick to come to the aid of others and they are loyal, truthful, and wont try to pull a fast one on someone; they are usually very honourable.
Sagittarians strongly need to have their own space and freedom to do what they please. They can easily feel caged in either emotionally or physically and this keeps them from completely committing to anything or anyone. Marriage may be a difficult pill for them to swallow, and though they can be very idealistic and starry-eyed about love, they must have a partner that is more of an intellectual and communicates openly with them. They may be a bit flirtatious at times as they have a naturally charming persona and they expect their partner to be secure enough to handle this; possessive or jealous displays only cause them to distance from their partner. However, it must be noted that a Sagittarius will likely enjoy the hunt more than the obtained victory as they often lose interest once the challenge is gone.
For their career, Sagittarians do not enjoy routine and may switch jobs frequently, dabbling a little bit here and a little bit there until they find something stimulating enough to hold their interest. Travelling is always welcome to them and they would do well in a position where they were not tied down to one location. Working with people face-to-face is also ideal and they would make excellent salespeople, promoters, businesspeople, and the like.
Though they may not be detail-oriented, they have a skill for making plans and they are great at remembering things. The main task is to find what can actually hold their interest; often they will be stimulated by doing something new and different and any sort of game-play can be very enjoyable to them as well.
You prefer to filter your emotions through your mind and can come across as rather cool and emotionally reserved. Most people are unable to comprehend the way you handle your emotions and may come to believe that you are unfeeling. This placement bestows a stable emotional nature. You often feel secure when you are involved professionally with groups and engaging in team work. You are innovative, unique, and advanced in your thinking; you utilise these traits to benefit humanity. Your relationships with your relatives may be less significant to you than the ties you hold with your friends as it is likely that you feel more bonded to those in your life that you have CHOSEN. You require free reign in your connections with people and will take a step back from the relationship when others become too involved. A partner that is envious, domineering, and clingy will only push you away. You may find yourself involved with many partners as you tend to be curious. You have an aversion to the conservative and old-fashioned. You are naturally social and outgoing, advanced in your thinking, and self-sufficient. Your open-minded nature entices you to seek knowledge of all sorts. However, empathy and compassion is not a strong suit for you and you struggle to comprehend others on an emotional level. On occasion your inner tension will manifest as expressing unconventional or extreme viewpoints, only for their shock value. You may also be detached, unpredictable, unyielding, stiff, selfish, and defiant.
You are able to see possibilities in a fantastic way; grand schemes for the future, fuelled by enthusiasm for idealistic endeavours. Always looking forward, you are more concerned with possibilities than the tried and true; abstract ideas are your forte. You seek knowledge and are particularly fascinated with spirituality and political or religious topics. It may be challenging for you to complete your projects as you can be impractical and dislike attending to the mundane matters that are a necessary part of all developments; your focus tends to dwindle once you lose interest. Mentally you require a lot of independence to go your own way, though you often think along conventional paths. You are likely to take risks and gamble at opportunities. People do not need to guess what you are thinking or where they stand with you, as you are apt to tell them exactly whats on your mind in no uncertain terms. Youre a straight shooter; for you, the fastest way to get from point A to point B is a straight line. Be mindful of speaking too quickly without thinking things through first, as this can cause you, and those you care for, undue stress. Developing a more diplomatic way of expressing yourself can be very beneficial to you as you can be tactless at times. You are likely to excel in business or any field where you are promoting due to your natural ability to influence others. You are sharp, spontaneous, and adaptable. It is likely that you will be involved in more than one assignment, job, or school course at one time. Standing still is not for you as you would much rather travel the world and experience as much as you can, learning and improving yourself continuously.
You are unlikely to be demonstrate of the romantic feelings you hold for your significant other, preferring a more careful and guarded approach. Love is a serious business for you and frivolous, insincere relationships are not appealing. However, you strongly value other peoples opinions of you and desperately need warmth and recognition, despite seeming disconnected. You desire a partnership that will be authentic and stand the test of time. Your views towards love and relationships are conventional and you appreciate traditions. You are likely to stick with your partner through thick and thin, remaining loyal even during trying times. It is probable that the person of your choosing will be more mature than you as you seek out those that will be dependable and supply the security you crave; there may be a significant difference in age. You are faithful, patient, reliable, dedicated, and unwavering. It is possible that you will judge the value of your relationship on material matters, possibly committing only when you believe the partnership will provide you with monetary means or raise your social station. There is a self-protective streak that can limit you when you would like to move forward in your relationships. If Venus is negatively aspected, you may be overly afraid, envious, detached, scheming, or prone to thinking only of yourself. You may feel overwhelmed with a need to succeed or raise your social status.
Your drive is conveyed in unusual and innovative ways. The way in which you conduct matters can be purely brilliant. You are ingenious, methodical, alternative, and at times defiant. Being part of a team can appeal to you while you are working. Socialising in general is important to you and you prefer larger gatherings with people who share your views and influences. You are egalitarian, interested in advancing, and do not mind sharing power with others. Fresh ideas and uncommon approaches to getting things done while at work are likely to attract you. You are full of energy, though this energy can be sporadic and you may need to work on projects when you feel a surge rather than consistently, one step at a time. This irregularity can cause you to become tense and intolerant when trying to attain your goals. You tend to be careful, self-sufficient, inventive, uninhibited, with an eye for intelligent pursuits. A sense of urgency and ability to keep calm under pressure, allows you to do well during crisis situations. Science and technology are likely to interest you as well, especially in movies and stories. You often feel the need to act out against any rules or regulations, as well as authority figures; it would be beneficial for you to learn to minimise this tendency. At times you may also come across as argumentative, antagonistic, quarrelsome, and contradictory.
You are genuine, loyal, trustworthy, capable, and resourceful with an aptitude for technical or practical tasks. You may find that you encounter reservation, restraint, and a need to venture carefully when putting forth efforts to grow and better yourself. There is an innate need to acquire material assets, though in the end this will not attribute to your joy or contentment. You may be prone to depression or isolating yourself from life and from other people. Independent and disciplined, you prefer being in positions of authority. Wastefulness is not something you can abide by easily. Achieving success will be possible only if you are able to remain honourable during your dealings; karma has a way of punishing you for any dishonourable behaviour.
You have immense self-control and restraint when needed. You are able to understand people and intricate situations with remarkable accuracy and have no trouble manoeuvring any circumstance you find yourself in. A managerial or administrative ability is also present. Your intuition is exceptionally strong and you may experience premonitions. Outwardly you may keep your thoughts to yourself as you can be very private about your life and others may find you tough to read. Difficult situations do not faze you as you are capable of conquering almost anything you encounter or have the ability to figure it out. You are diligent and dedicated in your undertakings and are able to wait as long as need be to achieve your most cherished goals. Saturn bestows excellent perception while Mars adds a strong drive, creating an unbeatable force to be reckoned with. However, you may need to be mindful of a tendency towards unyielding, inflexible, vengeful, bitter, callous, or even cruel behaviour. There is also a possibility of becoming power-hungry or preoccupied with money or success. This placement denotes a necessity to reform your inner yearnings and it will be imperative that you allow situations to develop as they may, rather than holding on to a desired outcome, person, or object; surrender and release. Your body is affected by this tendency as well and you may experience health issues that revolve around your bowels, colon, or elimination processes such as your kidneys or gall bladder.
The Planets in astrology symbolize what is being addressed. They behave as actors in a production. What is happening on stage? The Houses in astrology are the stage. They ask the question where? Where is the action? In the home, in health, in the career or in the marriage, to name a few. The Houses tell the story of where the action is happening, what type of people are involved and what sort of environment it is.
You aspire to obtain power through material gains and your natural talents, as it is important for you to be highly regarded and worthy of respect. Motivated and giving, yet you can be prone to excessive spending and in turn may find yourself being domineering or controlling with your possessions, and sometimes with others as well. You may also harbour feelings of being unloved or unworthy, if an aspect is afflicted with the Sun.
Family ties are important to you in this placement. You often search for and enjoy collecting possessions that tie to you to where you came from, a way of clinging to your past. Family relations and your home life instil a deep sense of personal security for you and there is likely a strong influence from the parental figures in your life. Your living location may change frequently as you search for an ideal location to put down roots. In your career, there will be an emphasis on things to do with the home; you may even work from home or create a home-like environment in your office as this will allow you to feel comfortable and secure.
Mercury in this placement gives you a clever, observant mind that is able to absorb information like a sponge. Quick and attentive, as well as gifted with versatility; you can be a jack-of-all-trades. It is likely that you will go through many short-lived adventures, but in time you will be able to bring your ideas to fruition due to your ease at articulating yourself through both the written and spoken word. Being very detail oriented, you may venture into a career in teaching or technology.
A feeling of luxury is important to you in your home and you crave to be in an attractive environment. People feel comfortable when in your home as you have a knack for making them so. You are creative and particularly delight in entertaining others, especially children and family members. This placement creates a tendency towards weight gain as you age, however it bestows you with a pleasing and content life.
You have a passionate energy to create a secure, independent life early on. Home life can be described as challenging due to your tendency to be domineering and touchy, even abrasive at times, to those in your home. You must find a way to channel your excess emotional energy into physical labour of some sort as this will help sooth you.
This placement opens the mind and allows you to better understand whatever comes your way. You easily see the big picture, though may at times be blind to specific details. Your mental makeup contributes to a positive, somewhat conservative, thoughtful person with a bend towards philosophy. You are generally well thought of by others but may find yourself focusing more on your own satisfaction. There is a tendency towards feeling restless, though this can be tempered by focusing on your career, as long as you are able to keep moving forward. Try to be mindful of an inclination towards impracticality.
Having Saturn in this placement can make material possessions difficult for you to acquire. Knowing this instinctively, you are naturally more responsible, cautious, and frugal with your spending. At times you find yourself saving so much that you forget the purpose of it; we work to live and not the other way around. Give yourself a chance to live a little bit on occasion and try to share with others, as worrying over monetary matters only leads to feelings of unhappiness for you. There is a possibility of material scarcity with this placement as too great of an importance may have been placed on material concerns in a previous life. Likely, you will need to re-examine your beliefs in material matters. You can become tight-fisted with others at times and often harbour feelings that you are not valued, lovable, or required. You must find significance in your own self before others can see it.
Quite the original thinker, your ideas are inventive, fresh, and imaginative, though they are not usually conventional. You tend to communicate in ways that can sometimes baffle others as your thought patterns may be rather eccentric. You are rarely bored as you thirst for information and enjoy learning new bits of data. Your mind is restless and it is important for you to find intellectual stimulation. Traveling seems to temper this craving; therefore you may find yourself away from home often. Relationships with family and your immediate community tend to be afflicted with an underlying tension that can be somewhat strained and stressful.
Your mind intuitively absorbs information instead of accessing it in a conscious, step-by-step method. You have an artistic way of thinking that you filter through your strong idealistic views. Your thoughts come to you in vivid flashes and are enhanced by your rich imagination. You may find you are intuitively aware of things before they happen and can often accurately predict the future. It is easy for you to sense what is happening in others minds before they do. Because most of your knowledge is acquired in an intuitive way that deviates from conventional methods, you can find yourself feeling insecure and anxious as you are unable to explain where it come from. Your mind can put you into a dream-like state that you indulge in to the point of avoiding your duties; you can be quite a procrastinator. Try to be more reliable and especially avoid further escapism through substance abuse. There may be unresolved issues with family and other relations from a past-life that will need to be addressed.
Although your emotions may be rather sensitive, inside there is a powerhouse of strong will that allows you to fight for the things that are important to you. You can be overbearing at times and may try to use this energy to control others; you are capable of profound anger when the situation calls for it. Your internal strength comes from an intense emotionality and if harnessed correctly, you possess healing abilities that can both transform and regenerate. Others are pulled in by your magnetism, although you may be a bit of an enigma to them, causing you to spend a good deal of your time alone. Independent and courageous, you can sometimes find yourself brooding over trivial matters that may at times be imagined and would be best forgotten. Try to be more adaptable and forgive others their affronts.
