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 Aries on the rising are typically driven, ground-breaking, impulsive, quarrelsome, self-centred, short-tempered, dominant, wilful, self-sufficient, watchful, good with your hands, and boastful, with a large amount of physical energy that must be expelled somehow. Your impulsiveness may lead to seemingly careless behaviour even if you have good intentions. Strongly independent, you rebel against anyone telling you what you should do. It would be beneficial for you to develop a more diplomatic way of communicating in addition to a bit of caution, as you may jump before thinking ahead and get yourself into sticky situations. Try to release your energy in a more positive way. Unfortunately, often when you are presented with a problem, you use force to try to mould it into the desired result, thinking that will-power alone will fix things. You must learn that brute force will not gain you the results you are hoping for, instead you will limit yourself, making matters worse and bulldozing over peoples feelings. You enjoy competitions of all sorts and can be a bit aggressive at times. Doing the same thing day in and day out bores you to bits but you must find a way to persevere in these circumstances as they are a necessary part of life. There is a tendency to dive into one thing only to leave it unfinished and start something fresh; complete the things you have begun rather than letting novelty temp you away from the hard work you have already put in. Your lesson may be to develop a more patient outlook. Aries is ruled by Mars and therefore its placement in your chart will be significant.
Shhh! To Taurus, sex is hard work. It takes time and should do so. Taurus can still be kind of lazy in bed, wanting the partner to do most of the work. Read all about Taurus sexuality here.
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.
This placement can be difficult due to a tendency towards escapism from daily life and the responsibility that comes with it. Substance abuse may also be prevalent and must be watched for or it can destroy you. The mundane ins and outs of the daily routine bore you and you crave a way to be a part of a fantastical enterprise, where you can couple idealism with your imaginative mind. If you are not able to find an outlet for this, you will be unable to discipline yourself to perform the duties that you are responsible for. Others depend on you yet you often disappoint them. This causes people to view you negatively and disassociate themselves from you in the future. It might prove challenging for you to decipher what is real from what is not; living half-way in a dream-like state is typical for you. It is imperative that you find a way to keep your feet planted firmly on the ground or you will sink. Perhaps you do not feel at home here in the physical realm and are more comfortable in the spiritual one, but you are here now and must do your best to gain wisdom from the situations you encounter. All of us exist in this world for that very reason and you are no exception. Instead of being lost in the fantasy, pay attention and do what you need to.
If you are able to focus and discipline yourself, you just might be able to achieve the fantasy you so strive for. A pyramid was not built in a day, and neither is the kind of life that you dream of. Artistic and creative ventures will allow you to express the pent up feelings you harbour deep down from all of the responsibilities that drag you down in daily life. Your imaginative abilities can create something truly epic, if only you can keep yourself centred in reality and restrain yourself enough to work practically until your vision is realised.
Selfish endeavours are not appealing to you and you would rather devote your time to something that will be beneficial on a grand scale; this will give you a sense of purpose. Climbing the social or corporate ladder may not be for you as you do not possess the qualities competitive, confrontational qualities that often drive others to the top. There is also a habit of deeming yourself either far more capable than you are, or undervaluing yourself. Deceit and delusion are themes in your life, whether they come from other people, or from your own insecurities. People may try to take advantage of your helpful and caring nature, so be mindful that you do not fall prey to every John that tells you a sad tale. Keep in mind that although it would be amazing if you could protect the world from evil all on your own, it is highly unlikely; you can, however, look out for yourself, which will take a lot of effort as it is.
You tend to become overly dependent in your romantic involvements or your partner may be overly dependent on you, and there is a likelihood of either sacrificing too much of yourself to somehow save them or to go the other extreme and act as though they are victimising you. However, it is imperative that you comprehend that when a partnership is not equal, it is not a partnership at all and will not succeed in the end.
This placement can intensify abrasive, sensory, rash, irritable, demanding, and indulgent traits as well as verbal and physical dramaticism. You often follow whichever path your desires steer you towards. Spirituality for you may either go towards being very devoted to your religion, or the exact opposite route, Atheism. However, you seem to embody a bit of a chaotic nature and must learn self-restraint.
You are gifted but are not confident in your capabilities and question whether you are worthy. Your insecurities are masking reality and you need to start believing in yourself. Your lesson is to overcome whatever is keeping you from developing the self-confidence you need to succeed in the areas that you are most talented. Try not to let failing at something deter you from trying again; everyone makes mistakes and this does not make you any less worthy or capable. Keep Trying. When you are feeling insecure, you will start blaming others for your mistakes until you believe the lies yourself. However, what is true never stays hidden for long and in the end when it comes out, you will experience depression; best to be upfront. You should look at each failed attempt as a way to learn and grow, to become stronger and more capable in the future. Your disappointments will aid you in developing self-discipline and a higher spirituality, as will displaying selfless acts of kindness towards others.
Use caution with others as they may not be the person they project themselves as. It is possible that hidden adversaries from a previous life will turn up in this one to administer the karma you deserve. Though you may be tempted, try to keep from participating in unwholesome mystical practices, calling on dark spirits, and similar endeavours. Deep down you feel a strong pull towards being completely genuine and truthful towards other people and your own self.
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.
You combine cleverness and craftiness in order to get the most you can out of others so as to benefit yourself. You are mentally attentive, sharp, and enjoy a good verbal sparring match. At times you can speak too quickly or bluntly, and would do well to slow down a bit. You also tend to take out revenge on others by verbally cutting them down. When you become angry these attacks can become particularly explosive, involving insults and intense rants. Your assertive communication insists that others come around to share your viewpoints, though you are unlikely to be open theirs. It is important for you to develop self-control and a way to express your desires in a reasonable fashion, rather than letting them run away with you. If you are able to redirect the tension you feel inside into creative endeavours, you will save yourself lots of trouble with other people as you are prone to starting fights when tension builds up within you. You often criticise those closest to you when you are in a bad mood and this habit may burn many bridges. Most conversations quickly turn into arguments with you and it would be a good idea to go into a career where this personality trait is an asset rather than a hindrance, for instance as a human/animal rights activist, upholding the law, or possibly where a no-holds-barred critique is required. Reading appeals to you and it is likely that you are skilled in written communication or creative writing.
It is difficult for you to contain your high energy long enough for you to calmly stay in one place and you will instead fidget around until you are actively engaged in something. This lends to you preferring to work on a variety of different endeavours at once as you lose interest quickly otherwise, though you rarely see any of these projects through to completion. However, it is important that you allow yourself a chance to relax and unwind or you will wear yourself out mentally. When pressure within you reaches a pique you will explode outwardly, often without reason. Logic is difficult for you to find when you are angry, your thoughts tend to be muddled during this time, and you are not able to rationally convey why you are feeling such rage. Your nervousness can make you susceptible to physical ailments that are usually associated with stress; make a conscious effort to relax every day and try not to take on more work than you can realistically handle. Your volatile temper can also create trouble with your heart. Often you go about each day in a busy manner, speeding about though getting very little done. Learn to pace yourself.
You have a vivid imagination and can easily dream up interesting concepts, though transferring these concepts into something concrete can prove difficult for you. Others may view you as scatter-brained and stuck in the clouds. Visionary potential can be very powerful, but potential is meaningless if you cannot get the concepts off of the ground. Learn to control your mind in a way that allows you to move forward with implementation of the fantastical world youve created.
If reality seems too harsh, you will change the current situation in your head to resemble what you wish to be real and then replay this scenario mentally until you believe it as true. There is a tendency towards escapism that needs to be watched for, particularly in regards to substance abuse, as this will make your troubles worse instead of better. It is important for you to look your demons in the eye, as they will only grow stronger until you do.
You have trouble remembering things sometimes and can come across as a space-cadet. It is not your intelligence that is in question, only that you are often in your own world and it would do you well to visit us on this planet every so often. Clarity of thought is not easy for you to come by and communicating your thoughts or feelings proves even more difficult. Often when you try to explain yourself, you do so in a fashion that only confuses others further. Using art as a form of communication may actually help you convey what you cannot say verbally. If you focus yourself enough, you will find a way to express your message. It is also within your character to purposefully try to fool people. Focusing on anything beyond your own world up in the clouds can be challenging for you and will require discipline.
You tend to go from one extreme to another and are either completely gullible or refuse to give weight to anything that hasnt been extensively proven to you. Unfortunately, your perception is often muddled and therefore your deductions are inaccurate at best. You have a very vivid, action imagination and are often talented in various forms of art. Instinctively you are able to comprehend what others often miss and you have an uncanny sense of who people really are with very little to go on. The same is true of circumstances that you are involved with. Subjects that are mysterious hold your fascination though you need to be mindful of getting involved with destructive mystical situations, for instance calling forth on dark spirits or hypnosis. Scientific material is also likely to be of interest. It can be difficult for you to decipher what is real from what is not, though you must do your best in this regard as you can be easily tricked by what you think you see. If you are unable to do this, others may perceive you as dishonest when the truth is that you believe your own lies. Try to channel your active imagination into creative ventures and leave the fantasies to live in your projects instead of the real world. Traditional methods of education are unlikely to work for you as you need to gather your information through unconventional means, usually learning through soaking in what is around you. Having direct experience or coming into contact with someone who has direct experience in a subject is more likely to make an impact on you than trying to make sense of the words you see in books. You may have a gift in creative writing, particularly having to do with visualisations and telling stories. Your environment affects you deeply and therefore it would be best if you were careful in where you go and who you surround yourself with; you absorb whatever energy you come into contact with.
You usually possess a positive attitude, though this can be expressed as an extreme. You commit to things that you are unable to see through to the end. Many of the tales you tell are amped up so as to create a larger impact. You are unlikely to believe in religion due to not being able to wrap your head around the matter. You prefer working on a grand scale and leaving the details to someone else. There is an almost obsessive habit of going back again and again to make sure you did something like close the window or put the phone on the charger. You have a tendency towards over-doing things in general as you instinctively feel that if something is good, adding more of it will only make it even greater. You can be close-minded about views that differ from your own. You often ignore the fine print in favour of the big picture and many times this can cause trouble for you in the future. It would do you well to try to keep your visions grounded, as you are likely to overemphasise and misjudge a promising new concept. You do not mean to cause any harm, you simply get over-excited and this can create problems for you. There are so many new concepts, visions, and dreams spinning around in your mind and you find it a challenge to pick one and go with it. In addition, you may find yourself completely engrossed in a foolish endeavour. Mentally you are strongly interested in topics related to abstract theories and spiritual or philosophical matters.
Despite some of the above, you are often successful in business as you seem to have a natural knack for it. Your abundance of fresh concepts and ability to take risk aids you in these ventures. Travelling is particularly appealing to you and you enjoy being introduced to fresh information and new forms of understanding. You may try your hand as an educator due to your appreciate for knowledge and your enthusiasm for conveying what you have learned to others. However, it is important that you develop enough self-restraint to sort through your troubles thoroughly before making a move as you have a habit of impatiently hurrying your work with less-than-perfect results as a consequence; this can even be seen in your often illegible writing style. At times your ideas are too far-fetched and unrealistic to be put into practice. Although, this attitude of yours does keep you from being judgemental of other people. Even with a mind as unique as your own, you have trouble with remembering things sometimes and can be a bit of a space-cadet. There is possibility of being gifted in the written or spoken word. You need to be particularly mindful of becoming so enthralled by a situation that you are unable to think clearly and accurately; make sure your assumptions are correct before you act on them. You are talented in pulling something from one area and successfully connecting it to another area that was seemingly unrelated. Be careful who you trust as there are those that would take your kindness for granted and use you for all that you are worth. In addition, taking some time to think before you speak will help you overcome a tendency towards rambling on and over-explaining when something could be said more simply and cohesively.
You are rather intuitive, possibly emotionally fragile, and may run into problems if you engage in the occult or mysticism in destructive ways. Because you are sensitive to your environment, you will need to be mindful towards a tendency to be easily affected by what others say, think, or do. It is also possibly that you may be able to pull out ideas from thin air and find a way to better yourself through them, whether this be an improvement on your will-power, your mentality, or your emotional well-being. Sometimes you are so set on being unlike the rest that you forget what the real truth is, try to stay aware of the actual situation. There is a tendency towards escaping through substance abuse, though this will not help you on your journey. Instead, you will discover who you are through aiding others. Use your intuition to guide you to where you are supposed to be. Creative endeavours will help you to unload any excess emotions.
You are a self-sufficient rebel, progressive and unconventional, with a strong will-power and an energy that tends towards the unexpected. You can also exhibit brash, unpredictable behaviour. You demand freedom to do your own thing at all costs and will not abide by others trying to control your life in any way. Your anger comes on suddenly, seemingly from nowhere. There is a great deal of vitality in this placement and if you channel your energies in a constructive fashion, you can achieve many great feats. However, this energy can also destroy you if not channelled positively. Patience has never been easy for you and you insist on having whatever you desire whenever you want it. You behave hastily, acting on impulse, though making decisions is not a problem for you. It is difficult for you to do anything part-way, you either put everything you have into what you are doing, or you dont bother to do it. Rules and regulations are not for you, and following a strict routine equates to a slow torture for you. There is susceptibility towards being involved in accidents of all sorts due to your impatience, as you are often rushing around without caution. Often restless, you prefer to be doing something exciting and challenging and do not tend to stay in the same situation for long periods of time, changing residency, jobs, or even relationships often. You may find yourself in trouble with those in charge, as you dislike the orders coming from anyone but you. Your communication is clear and direct, and you tell people, in no uncertain terms, exactly what is on your mind. Formal structure of conversation is not something you think of and you can be rather tactless and blunt when communicating with others. If you can channel your energies correctly, you are able to create beneficial transformations in any endeavour you have decided to focus on. Internally, you are often struggling with an anxious sort of tension that you find difficult to release and relaxation is a challenge for you. You tend to be on edge, inventive, and bold; striving to experience everything at least one time. You have a quick mind and an original imagination, as well as a skill for manual projects. The more a project smells of danger, the more likely you are to be interested.
This placement makes you driven, truthful, intuitive, and brave. Though you must be willing to hear what others have to say and not be rebellious every time you are asked to do something. If you are able to achieve this, it will aid you in developing self-restraint which is important to curb the chaos you often find yourself in. You also enjoy shocking others just for the sake of getting a reaction from them and this can be detrimental to your success.
There is a tendency towards selfish behaviour where you act in accordance to your own wishes without much thought to what other people may need. You can be arrogant in your wants and often will not assist people if it will be in any way inconvenient or costly to you. However, if you could learn to curb your selfish behaviour, you are able to use your dedication and drive to benefit anyone who may request your aid. If you are able to do this, you can go the opposite route and remove your own desire completely, passionately devoting yourself to a cause or another person. You must choose which journey is the right one for you.
You are driven, innovative, resourceful, and confident. Being successful is important to you though others may view you as demanding and overly assertive when you are working towards your ambitions. Opportunistic and unafraid, you regularly search for ways to learn and improve. Travelling can be a great opportunity for you to acquire what you search for. You are able to engage in risky ventures if you believe they will be profitable enough. This tendency may not do you well, as you can misjudge your abilities or the benefits of these endeavours; try to curb a desire to gamble as it can be your undoing.
Prone to exaggeration, you may express an ability to achieve more than is possible in actuality, causing you to fall short on the promises you have made. This happens due to your own misjudgement of what you can bring to fruition. As much as you are able to achieve, you will never be content with what you have done and strive to out-do yourself, convinced that you need to supplement your aim further. Instead, try looking inwardly for what is missing.
Rather than rushing around, take the time to create a plan and it will help you avoid accidents. Thinking ahead will also allow you time to pay attention to the way other people are feeling or the efforts they have made, as you can be blind to this and unintentionally hurt them. You are very competitive though you also likely to lose interest in whatever you have won once you have it in hand; you must understand that everything cannot always be a contest. If you are able to conduct your dealings in a more harmonious manner, you will find people much more responsive to you.
You possess a great deal of energy and have the skill required to succeed in athletics if only you can discipline yourself enough to make use of these talents. Your outlook is positive in general and this helps you succeed. Be careful not to spread yourself too thin due to indulging in extravagances; you must learn self-restraint. You may encounter problems legally if you are not cautious. When conducting business with people, find equilibrium between excitement and aggressive behaviour. Do not rush your projects; rather take time to make sure your work is done well instead of quickly. Your tendency to rush your work is often due to the restless tension you feel internally that insists you never stay in any situation for long.
You have many aspirations that spill into an array of different subjects. You are hopeful, idealistic, and imaginative. The notions that come into your mind are often on a grand scale. At times you may find yourself unable to follow through on the promises you have made, due to being overly positive about your capabilities or the circumstances at hand. You are talented in sales and advertising. Aiding others is something you strive for, though people may abuse your good-will as your emotions can run high and you may too easily empathise with someone who is down on their luck. You feel that humanity is connected as a whole and what affects one person, affects the entirety. Benefits come to you from unknown places though they may also be lost by deception, rumours, or indulgence. Staying positive regardless of the circumstances is natural to you, though be sure to keep grounded. You have a strong belief that upcoming situations will be for the best, but you must be mindful to stay practical and not falsely believe the circumstances are more glorious than they really are. You are giving, compassionate, and caring, and are likely to feel a pull towards the spiritual realm.
Your thinking is lightning fast. Extremely original with strong intuition, you have an inventive mind that is always concocting fresh methods. You are a progressive, alternative, non-conformist who insists on having the utmost independence to express yourself. You are endlessly excited by new concepts, experiments, and technology. Patience will need to be developed as you can be short-tempered with those who do not have as quick of a mind as you happen to be blessed with. Abstract theories are easy for you to understand and you would do well working in the field of science or mechanics. You are gifted with cleverness and ingenuity, perception and intelligence. You may find yourself drawn to the metaphysical realm or to mechanics. Astrological topics may be of interest as well. Naturally your spirit is a bit on edge, and you should try to find methods to calm your nerves. You prefer to have a variety of different things happening to you all at once or else boredom will quickly set in. Your mind needs to have something fresh and interesting to ponder and dissect. Often you will find new concepts coming to you seemingly out of thin air, and this is your intuition at work. Travelling will provide much of the stimulation you crave and you excel in situations that require you to think on your feet, where you must adapt, and where the outcomes are uncertain. You are self-sufficient and fiercely independent.
However, despite the above, you can reject any concept or manner of thinking that does not adhere to the conclusions you have come to previously. Be careful not to spread yourself too thin mentally, and try to concentrate on something long enough to complete it. This tendency to try to do too much at one time can cause you to act on impulse, recklessly jumping around from situation to situation. You can be very sceptical of the concepts that other people express to you. You are happy to entertain fresh ideas, though only if you do not feel pressured, in which case you are likely to rebel against them. The way someone approaches you is important. Try to keep in mind that many times people are not meaning to pressure you and that you are just highly sensitive to any sort of perceived demand on your mental freedom. Allow yourself to openly entertain notions that may differ from your own views. In addition, it would be beneficial for you to develop enough self-control to stick to an idea or project until you have completed it. At times you can behave as though the world or the people in it owe you something. They do not. Remove your ego and detach yourself from this way of thinking.
The routines you have adopted can frustrate other people. You may be rude, ill-mannered, or personally unhygienic and these traits often aggravate others. There is a tendency towards laziness and a dislike of hard work. You believe that this sort of labour is meant for someone else, and you will watch others work while you relax, with a clear conscience. You are able to tell what people desire and sweet-talk them into doing what you want; being truthful is no concern of yours. You feel like there are two different people at war within you and this wreaks havoc for you personally. Sometimes you will become so accommodating with those you love that you become someone else and wind up feeling miserable in the end. You are unsure what exactly it is that you want out of a romantic partnership, someone to take care of you or someone to be on an equal level with. When you feel emotionally unsatisfied, you can over-indulge in rich foods. You are prone to over-eating sweets and richer cuisine in general, as you can be rather insecure. You may question your self-worth or attractiveness, despite people expressing otherwise. Try to develop a backbone and fight for the things that matter to you, or for yourself when necessary. You crave genuine care and affection for emotional security, and if you believe that this may be removed from your life, you start to fall apart. Your warmth stands on its own, though you must curb your possessive habits. Love transcends many lifetimes and we never fully say goodbye. Instead, we are brought back together in the next life.
Keep an eye on your finances as they can run away from you more rapidly than you can acquire them. You have a habit of indulging yourself too much as well as expecting your surroundings to be luxurious. Rather than do the work necessary to fix something, you will often sweep problems under the rug. You may feel as though you are not good enough just as yourself and you are constantly monitoring how popular you are. It is important for you to learn how to be brave and express your concerns when you have them. Sometimes you care so much about what people will think of you that you steer clear of any confrontation. However, your road to happiness involves building integrity and fighting for the things you believe in, as this will allow you to be truly who you are deep down.
There is intensity in every aspect of your life from your emotions and wants, to your romantic partnerships, with many of them being full of passion, instability, and heartbreak. You have a great personal magnetism that pulls others in. There is a tendency towards obsessing over people and partnerships. In your relationships, you may take turns trying to possess one another, each person controlling as much of the situation as they can until the other has had enough and tries to turn the tables. You can be jealous and also try to manipulate others, whether you do this behind the scenes or in a more overt manner. There is not much you will not do in order to maintain your power over people and the situation at hand. Your intense emotions can create such a strong pull within you that you find yourself acting in ways that are irrational. Evetually your emotions reach a peak and you need to remove yourself completely from the people in your life and the situations that you are in, and start anew. You are not the most open-minded person and can be very stubborn in your viewpoints, throwing them at others aggressively, often disregarding new concepts that others are trying to convey to you, and always insisting that your opinions are correct. You remember every slight, perceived or otherwise, that someone has done towards you. Work on your perception and you might find that people are different than you originally thought. Your feelings are so overwhelming sometimes that you are unable to reign them in. Finances can be an obsession for you as you need to feel secure. The biggest lesson for you in this placement is to temper the emotional chaos within. You have a deeply rooted sense of rejection and feeling as though you are somehow unworthy, and this makes it hard for you to believe that the people you care for are to be trusted. This aspect will test your romantic partnerships to help you grow as a person and show you how to truly have faith in the people you are bonded to.
Your positive attitude and jovial personality attract others and aids you in your success. A confidant demeanour draws good fortune to you. You strive to grow in wisdom, using philosophical interest to guide you. This placement bestows protection, though it may not come until right in the nick of time. You are energetic, excitable, sociable, cheerful, and lucky. You are likely to acquire monetary comforts with this placement. You dream big, though do not need to fight hard to make your dreams a reality. You tend to be giving, warm, dependable, genuine, truthful, and full of idealism. Your moral values are particularly strong and you believe in being fair and acting honourably. Petty displays are not abided by and you would never disgrace yourself enough to reach that kind of low. You attempt to develop self-discipline and awareness through spiritual means, particularly religion or philosophical studies. Past life karma is strong for you and favours you in many ways due to your caring, generous deeds towards others in a previous life.
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.
The pathway towards achieving your goals may be obstructed and there is also issue with asserting power. It seems that something always stands in the way of what you are trying to accomplish. It would be wise to evaluate the reasoning behind your actions. Are these actions done for selfish reasons alone, or do they have a benefit for humanity as a whole? Competing with others allows you to learn how to better collaborate with people. Much wisdom can be attained with this placement, however it is imperative that you act selflessly.
Karma from a past life insists that you listen to the opposing views of others openly in this life, as you had acted in a controlling, commanding manner previously. If you insist on holding to your own opinions rigidly, your conditions will only worsen. Great power comes with great responsibilitythis responsibility is to ensure others well-being, not only your own. Those who need to learn this are often placed in powerful roles so that they may do so. Be humble, keep striving, and develop your patience.
You can be very innovative though you must develop a way to adapt. You prefer things to stay the same, with the same routine, and this desire prompts you to attempt controlling others in some way. This placement may create a great deal of tension for you emotionally, though you can use these challenges to better understand the meaning of life.
You find it difficult to connection intimately. Painful experiences from your past cause you to keep your romantic feelings reserved as you worry that the past may repeat itself. Instead of going through the pain again, you have decided to withhold any sort of vulnerability. Solid, impenetrable, and alone. Due to the situations you have been through, others may see you as emotionless, not caring one way or another. You must foster warmth and find a way to let others in despite what may occur. Keep in mind that you will be unable to have a deeply fulfilling emotional connection with someone if you keep your feelings locked away; love needs to be allowed to flow both ways for it to be real. This placement challenges you to love without expectations. Allow yourself to feel fully, do not hold yourself back, and you will have learned the ultimate lesson.
Opening up to others may happen slowly for you, as you may have trouble trusting people. You have put up very sturdy walls that may not be so easily knocked down. Deep down you worry that perhaps you are not worth loving, that just as yourself you fall short somehow. However, these worries are just your imagination teaming up with insecurity; you are just as worthy of being loved as anyone else. You must alter the way you go about matters concerning love. Others try to love you but often you close off to them, forcing them to abandon their efforts. Allow real love a chance and let people in. Even if you do get hurt, brush it off and try again; it only has to work ONCE.
In the end, the lesson here is for you to develop self-love and appreciation, and to convey the warmth you feel inside more overtly. Material possessions will not express how you truly feel, you must do this with sincere feeling. Look inside of yourself more often so that you can decipher the complicated emotions you often deal with internally. When your inner nature is truly recognised, you are able to be faithful and dutiful to the ones you care for. You tend to take your relationships seriously and may even choose partners that are more mature than you. Age tends to play a card in general when it involves romantic relationships, as you are likely to find someone significantly younger as well! Perhaps you can foster forgiveness when you feel that someone has inadvertently done you harm; keep an eye on your sensitivity. Your moments of insecurity will bring forth many issues that have been buried, often for good reason, and your relationships will suffer because of it.
Physical affection is another area in which you find trouble. It would be best for you to learn to share yourself with another. Sharing your material assets does not come easily to you either. However, the more you withhold these things from those you care about, the harder the situation will become for you. When your life is ending you will not have use for the things you own, so you may wish to consider sharing what you have while you still have it. Material possessions do not realistically give you emotional security, and though you may feel that they do, this is not actually the case. What is truly valuable is to give what you have to create happiness for others. One thing can be said for sure, your friendship is strong and true, and others can count on you to be there for them.
You have an excellent imagination and your environment can have a large impact on you. In your world, beauty and magic are everywhere! You are drawn to the metaphysical realm and strive to comprehend the meaning of all that you come across. There is a strong bond between you and the world at large; you are at one with humans, animals, and the forces at work. You have a great amount of empathy and care deeply for others, always willing to come to the aid of those who need you. Expressing yourself creatively, whether this is through artistic, musical, or acting pursuits, is essential to your happiness in life. Although, your strong idealism and romanticism can do well with some practicality. You are full of hopes and dreams that you are able to attain if only you can apply yourself. Karmic endeavours in past lives have set you up to build on your psychic abilities and turn them into reality by aiding those you come across in this life. You are able to remove yourself from your earthly self and connect spiritually when in need of advice. You have a particular fondness for the arts, higher principles, and sophistication. Premonitions or guidance may come to you in odd forms. Delicate emotionally, you will avoid conflict if possible. You possess a magnetic quality and an almost magical allure.
You feel a pull towards intensely emotional situations with others of the opposite sex. This pull is so strong that you feel as if it is almost uncontrollable. The craving you feel for intense experiences makes it difficult for you to reject these situations. You require a great deal of love and may over-indulge in your sexuality or become obsessed or difficult to satisfy. There is a double standard in your relationships as you are extremely envious and try to possess those you are interested in, while expecting that they give you freedom to do as you please. This can lead to inequality in your partnerships. Your attempts to control your partner will often lead them to pull away from you. A major challenge for you in your partnerships is that you insist on being the one in control of the relationship but always seem to be drawn to those who prefer to take the same role, leading to both of you constantly struggling for dominance. You would rather experience trouble if it means that you will also experience intense emotions, than to have a conflict-free, steady partnership that never reaches the high frequency you desire. You need to feel something powerful in order to feel as though you are truly living.
Your lesson is to take a good hard look at your beliefs and alter them accordingly. Your partnerships give you an opportunity to confront deep issues inside yourself and grow in wisdom. It is for this reason that you are drawn to those that are a challenge for you. The only way for you to grow is for you to experience the same behaviour you exhibited to others in a past life, back towards yourself in this one. You have an opportunity to remedy your past karma if you are able to react in kindness rather than vengeance. Learn to let things go. When you have cleansed your past karma and grown in wisdom, you will notice that you will no longer be attracting people who will create havoc for you. This placement denotes that you are able to move forward from previous malicious behaviours.
In regards to your health, you are likely to be susceptible to kidney trouble or issues with removing toxic material from your system. If the system is unable to remove toxic material, you may find yourself dealing with lung complications or trouble with the skin. Finding a way to let go of negative emotions that are toxic to your spiritually, and foster kindness and forgiveness towards others, can help your physical health.
If you are able to put other peoples needs above your own, you can create healing through the powerful emotions you possess.
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.
Taureans tend to be purposeful, diligent, resilient, tenacious, unrelenting, realistic, pragmatic, considerate, trustworthy, and faithful (learn about compatibility with Taurus here). They often enjoy manual labour as they prefer being able to see the concrete outcomes of their work. Doing the same thing, with the same schedule, day in and day out is perfectly okay with them as long as they feel they are providing something useful.
To a Taurus, material assets are exceptionally valuable as they feel somewhat unsafe and unsteady without owning something tangible. It is exactly this strong craving to own objects that spurs them forward towards productivity. However, they may project this desire to own onto their romantic relationships and treat others as objects, becoming possessive of their significant others.
Taureans are dependable, cautious, dedicated, persistent, and honourable; they may take longer to get going, but they are able to see a project through to completion. It is more likely that a Taurus will continue an endeavour that another has initiated, than to begin one on their own. You may be able to guide a Taurus but they can be quite stubborn if they feel forced into anything; they dig in their heels and refuse to budge.
A Taurus is difficult to anger, however once they are brought to that point, they can express an intense rage; they see red and charge! When angered, they are able to carelessly break all that they have spent precious time to build. Their anger will be slow-burning and they will require a period to sooth their temper until everything has passed out of their psyche. It would be beneficial to allow them the space they need to be on their own during this time as they must take a moment to process what has occurred. Do not force them to engage prematurely or you may trigger another episode and only wind up prolonging the process.
Taureans will hold stubbornly to their viewpoints and it will be challenging to alter them. If however one does manage to change the mind of a Taurus, be sure it is the desired direction as it will be even more difficult to revert their opinion to what it was previously. Taureans are known for remaining calm under pressure and provide realistic remedies to the trouble at hand; this causes others to feel as though they can trust a Taurus to handle the emergency and feel safe in their protection. Taureans become more frustrated than most when they are suffering physical discomforts, ailments, and the like.
A Taurus will prefer being in a peaceful, aesthetically pleasing environment and can be very warm and physically demonstrative. However, they are often worried that they will lose the things they have acquired. This insecurity brings out feelings of envy, indulgence, idleness, lethargy, inflexibility, and a desire to possess. It is crucial that a Taurus develop an appreciation for what is cerebral and non-physical, as this will free them from their tendency to clutch at others possessively as if they belonged to them. They must establish a strong set of principles and beliefs, and learn how to remove themselves so that they will be able to release their hold on both people and their material belongings.
Emotionally delicate, careful, and possibly reserved about opening up to others. You find it difficult to convey the way you feel to others, even those that you may have strong feelings for. On the outside, you prefer to show your cerebral side. You are more likely to show your affections by doing acts of kindness for the person, rather than directly stating them, and outward romanticism isnt your style. Being the recipient of grand gestures of affection is also uncomfortable for you as you either feel unworthy or as if the person is not being genuine. Due to your discomfort with displays of warmth and affection, others will tend to view you as more cold and reserved than you may feel inside. It is also possible that your high standards push people away and it would be beneficial to you to develop tolerance and appreciation towards others even if they are not infallible; try to be lenient with your own mistakes as well. Your insistence that things be always perfect may be the cause of much unhappiness for you. You are often diligent, dependable, cautious, intuitive, realistic, and sensible; this is especially true in regards to your feelings.

Be mindful not to become too exacting and demanding over the little things. You enjoy aiding people, though you are often unable to comprehend their deeper emotional needs. It is important for you to learn to be more accepting as this will allow you to better assist others.
You tend to speak your mind and like others to be clear about where you stand on an issue. There is a tendency towards being argumentative or competitive with others verbally, as you have a very innovative and active mind, at times perhaps too active. You express yourself in a direct fashion and never hold back. You enjoy sharing your viewpoints and will do so even when others may not necessarily wish to hear them. You may find yourself rebelling just for the sake of providing a different opinion, and you tend to deliver these opinions too bluntly; try to foster a more diplomatic approach. There is a lot of tension and anxiousness in your mental makeup, and it may be difficult for you to relax. You prefer being always on the go, particularly if you are able to engage yourself physically. You may have a skill in technical endeavours. Often times you do not think through the things you say and regret them immediately afterwards. You may need to develop greater focus and patience when engrossed in your projects. You tend to be well-liked by others due to your quick wit and engaging character. You detest others trying to control your actions in any way and require independence to follow whatever path YOU choose to. Your anger can flare up suddenly and intensely, though as soon as the blast is over you will quickly forget that anything was the matter in the first place. Hardly ever bored, instead you have the opposite problem where there is always more to do than you can ever have enough time for.
You convey your affection with empathy, kindness, warmth, and consideration while adding a bit of old-fashioned romance. You are very giving by nature and wholeheartedly come to the aid of those who need it. However, be mindful not to trust others too easily as you can be easily moved by a sad tale and taken advantage of, enabling others to rely on you as their sole support. This tendency to come to anothers aid can manifest in your romantic relationships as taking on an extreme role such as the victim or the rescuer. Your romantic relationships may begin by you finding someone who is having a rough time and believing only your love can somehow save them. Those who exhibit a creative and emotionally sensitive nature are drawn to you, and you to them. You crave to be bonded with someone with whom you can have a truly meaningful union with. Shallow relationships do not appeal to you; you need something deeper, something you can put your soul into. Your views towards relationships are very idealistic and you prefer to see things through rose-tinted lenses. The beauty in a love relationship does not elude you though you must be mindful not to be in love with a vision rather than what is really there. You are a delicate soul, sensitive and at times emotionally intense, as well as creative and sympathetic. Your high sensitivity and receptivity may bring about premonitions. You avoid confrontation and therefore may agree to things youd be better off avoiding; learn to stand up for yourself so that others do not walk all over your good intentions. You may somehow feel deep down that true love is not real unless it hurts, and so you readily sacrifice yourself.
You have an intense drive for respect, power, and success. Often taking the role of leader as you find it difficult to be controlled by others. Mars in Capricorn can create an individual who throws around their power, mercilessly trampling others to get ahead. You are effective, diligent, coordinated, determined, reasonable, persistent, and willing to do whatever it takes to reach your goals. You direct your efforts towards tangible achievements. You work hard and have a great deal of patience; you are able to sacrifice present luxuries for future success. Dutiful and meticulous in your projects, you may need to be mindful of your tendency to over-work yourself. However, you are more likely to stick to traditional tactics, working slow and steady, rather than taking a risk; you will only invest yourself in a sure thing so that all of your hard work will not go to waste. You do not count on karma to get to where you need to be, you like to make it on your own merit. Naturally astute with a good head on your shoulders, you have an excellent business sense. You are driven, self-sufficient, reliable, accountable, and persevering. It may take you a bit longer to acquire knowledge, but when you do grasp something, you comprehend it thoroughly. You utilise your energy in an efficient manner and accomplishing your goals is of extreme importance to you. However, there is an inner tension that may contribute to a frustration and bitterness towards perceived slights. It would be beneficial for you to develop a way to relieve these tensions in constructive ways and let go of the past.
You are caring, harmonious, out-going, empathetic, and care about your country and fellow man. There is a tendency towards idealism and you are fascinated by spiritual or supernatural concepts. Your observations and conclusions regarding finances are top notch and it is likely that you will acquire a large amount of wealth and assets after your middle years of life. You may also receive a great deal of aid from your family, particularly your parental figures. However, be mindful of a tendency to indulge in food and drink as this will cause weight gain as you age. Success will not come to you when you are young, but rather in your later years. It is also possible that you will become overly sentimental with your material assets, clinging to them and hording them away from others; try to curb your intense emotional reactions.
Challenges in setting limitations, restrictions, or plans may be present, in addition to difficulty with self-discipline. Your life can be disoriented at times, and you may find yourself adrift amidst the chaos of life; the correct path is not usually clear to you. You are compassionate, creative, altruistic, and intuitive, with delicate emotions. You hold to an idealistic view about life though at the same time have a habit of being too serious. Innately you sense that your current challenges are due to karma from your previous life; what has been given must be paid for. This may be the reason you experience an inner sadness that others cannot quite grasp. Your career may involve you investigating data or working in a supportive role, out of hindsight. When afflicted you can become emotionally unstable and are unable to make decisions on your own; your environment and those around you will affect you a great deal and you should be mindful to stay away from negativity. When you have failed in your attempts towards your goals or have been mistreated somehow, there is a tendency towards becoming stuck in a pessimistic, depressive state; only by fully releasing what has previously occurred, can you once more become positive about what is to come. It would help you to learn to detach a bit from other peoples worries, as this would allow you to better aid them. Conveying your previous experiences to others is a great path towards personal development.

Bestowed with a confident and independent personality as well as having excellent accountability, you often strive to be in a position of leadership.

There is a desire to be of service to others, especially working with women or the general public. You are very sensitive and moody; frequent career changes are likely. Your health is fickle and linked to your emotional state; when you are unhappy or stressed you will tend to eat in an unhealthy fashion.

You are inquisitive and clever, having a talent for witty, eloquent communication in all forms and always enthusiastic to converse about your array of varied interests with others. A high-strung personality may help keep you slim, but you must watch out for nervous disorders as your nervous system is highly sensitive. Luckily, you are also very adaptable which may help reduce your anxiety.

There is a good indication that you gain in financial resources through your parents as well. With this placement, staying close to where you were born may be beneficial to you rather than relocating. Take extra care not to become too bold and over-indulgent.
Though you are filled with doubts and insecurities, there is a strong inclination to develop a good deal of self-restraint and compassion. You may feel an urge to right the sins you may have indulged in during a past life. This karma may make you feel destined to isolate yourself from humanity, though a strong will-power enables you to amend these previous wrongs. It is likely that you will find yourself on a journey to serve others. A tendency to keep your fears bottled up may result in constant physical ailments unless you express them. You relish your alone time and may prefer to find a career that allows you take a back seat or where you would not need to socialise often with the community.
You are likely to work freelance or be your own boss, as you are largely self-sufficient and dislike a traditional work environment. It is easy for you to cope with the instability involved with working for yourself; predictable, dull, monotonous work is not for you. You crave variety or doing something unusual. There may be some difficulty with authority figures in the work place as well, due to your tendency to rebel against any commands. Your inventive nature drives you to work in technology, mechanics, or theoretical concepts; whatever you choose will express your creativity and strong intuitive abilities. This placement indicates unexpected shifts in career success.
Easily confused, you may find yourself plagued with anxiety and self-doubt which can at times make you feel removed from others and the outside world as a whole. Being at home may seem ideal to you, but this is often only a delusion. You feel a strong mystical connection with either your mother or father, possibly with both of them.

Writing down your thoughts may help you come to an understanding and release some mental anxiety; you can find this regenerating to your entire system. You may use this method to cleanse your mind as you can put the past behind you and start anew.
