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.
Shhh! Capricorn prefers to plan sexual encounters and then proceed according to plan. A seduction feels like cooperation, foreplay like a warm-up, and intercourse feels like work. Read all about Capricorn 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.
You full of get-up-and-go! This placement contributes to a healthy body and mind. You know how to assert yourself when needed and you confront your troubles head-on, in a clear manner. Rather than sulking about the difficulties you encounter, you concentrate on eradicating them. You are unsympathetic when you hear people complaining about their challenges without putting in the necessary effort to fix them. Through the obstacles in your life, you have discovered how to channel your emotional energy and cravings into productive endeavours instead of letting them tear you apart. You are rarely sick and when you do happen to catch something, you recover rapidly. People gravitate towards your enthusiastic nature and the vitality you exude. You are brave and capable, allowing you to feel confident participating in strategic risk-taking. You easily attract potential romantic partners because of your gregarious demeanour.
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.
There is potential for transformation and a rebirth of sorts if you are willing to put forth effort. Change is a large theme in your life and is there to help you develop and grow. You have excellent self-restraint and dedication during trying periods. Intuitively you are aware that these periods will not go on forever and that if you just allow things to flow where they may, in time the situation will improve naturally. You may be involved with the public somehow as your drive seems to seek this situation out; you feel that somehow this is position is fated. Emotionally you are able to restrict your feelings as well as mentally guide your thinking so as to not become wrapped up in overly intense displays. Others look to you as a leader for you are controlled, disciplined, truthful, sensible, and dependable, with a good head on your shoulders. There is an innate understanding that you must work hard for the merits you attain and this allows you to display a good deal of patience when rising in achievement. It may be important for you to take time for yourself to recover your energies, as you can sometimes feel communication with others is puzzling or frightening somehow. Traditional education methods may not suit you; you prefer to be able to absorb knowledge and wisdom through experience.
You enjoy beautiful things of high-quality as your senses are particularly attuned to shape and texture. Your sensitivity towards spatial dimensions and skill in creating beauty lends to an artistic talent that can be expressed in many forms. You may find yourself working in fields of design, decorating, writing, music, or various craftworks. This placement also bestows attractive vocal abilities that you can use to diffuse difficult circumstances. Both your way of thinking and your way of speaking lead to harmonious outcomes. Diplomatic solutions in tense situations come naturally to you. You may also find yourself doing well as a salesperson of arts or of aesthetically pleasing items. You instinctively know what colours would work well together and what sorts of musical chords are most pleasing together. In the case that you are not artistically gifted, you will have a fondness for the arts and creative ventures in general. Your charming personality, subtle humour, and polite mannerisms make it easy for others to get along with you and people generally enjoy your company. You make an excellent mediator when someone has been slighted or can be a calming presence during challenging debates. When your emotions are triggered, you will analyse them before acting and it is likely that you think your emotions or feel your thoughts as you are unable to separate your mind from your feelings.
You are vividly imaginative and can adapt your visions into the real world when you focus your efforts. Dreaming up fantastical scenarios feels like home to you and you enjoy mysterious subjects, as they only fuel your imagination. However, you are prone to escapism as the harsh realities of life can get to you, causing you to seclude yourself into your dream-world. Do not become so lost that you forget to handle your obligations. Hiding from your problems is not going to diminish them, rather it will do the opposite. Your caring, empathetic nature might attract shady characters that will tell you a sad tale in order to abuse your kindness; be careful of who you trust. Learn how to better monitor and restrict your feelings and the fantasies you are so easily drawn into.
You cannot help but absorb the hurt that people are feeling and their sadness has a strong effect on you, therefore you readily come to the aid of others when they are in despair. You are not the most assertive type and have trouble standing up for yourself when required. It is important that you become comfortable going after the things that matter to you. There is a possibility that you will have premonitions while you are sleeping as you have a link to the spiritual world due to your intuitive sensitivity, if you can only learn to believe the things you intuit. However, keep away from mystical situations that end up causing you more harm than good, for instance calling forth dark spirits, fortune-telling, or hypnosis. You can be very spiritual though at times unrealistic. You have difficulty saying no when you are tempted by something, so it would be best for you to stay away from these circumstances altogether. You are tuned in to the vibrations around you and negative emotions will drag you down drastically; strive to involve yourself in more cheerful surroundings whenever possible. Music with an ethereal, spiritual tone to it will likely make you feel a sense of belonging, as if it is taken from your very soul. You can be rather introverted at times though also over-indulgent. Artistic avenues draw you in and you may have significant talent in these fields. When you find someone that you truly enjoy and care for, you are prone to putting them up on a pedestal and can feel quite down and defeated when they eventually do not live up to your unrealistic expectations.
You are rather receptive of your environment with a creative talent that you use to produce aesthetically pleasing objects or surroundings. Musical pieces will stimulate a fantastical world inside of your mind that you will happily enjoy for hours on end, peacefully tuning the world out. You are idealistic in your romances and hold to the belief that there is only one true mate for you with whom you can live happily ever after. Luckily, you are able to entertain these dreams while at the same time staying realistic in your day-to-day life without being swept up by it all. You have a strong sympathy to those who are suffering and reach out to aid them when you are able. Naturally you are a generous person and helping others is satisfying to you on a deep level. You insist on doing what is right for mankind, keeping your personal ego at bay. It may be difficult for you to lead others or start a course of action due to your dislike of creating conflict. You will do a lot for the people you love and do not require repayment of your kindness. You feel that there is another world out there that we simply cannot see and enjoy being around other creative or sensitive people with whom you can delve further into the mystics. Gospel harmonies tend to affect you intensely when you listen to them, and you know that you have touched a piece of another life. You are likely to have musical talent, possibly vocally. Usually you will stand up for those that are considered lesser by societal standards, though you may need to be careful not to be swayed too much by a sad tale. Those who will aid you in the spiritual wisdom and evolution that you had begun in a past life are likely to be drawn to you in this one.
Resilience, dedication, perseverance, and working hard allow you to achieve challenging feats. You are able to sync idealistic characteristics with realism. The challenges you encounter allow you to demonstrate your endurance when circumstances get particularly difficult; a great deal of spiritual development is likely to arise due to these difficulties. Different, unconventional, uncommon, and maybe even odd matters will attract your motivations. Rather unique individuals are thrust into your world in order to allow you opportunities to learn and expand your consciousness. You are capable of finding equilibrium between your need for independence and your obligations, enabling you to achieve incredible acts. You are detail-oriented and have a knack for organising which contribute to your success and allow you to aid others. There is an abundance of internal tension that may need to be minded as this can have a negative effect on your physical health; find a way to unwind and reduce your stress levels.
You possess a strong will-power and an influential character. Others may believe you are a threat to them somehow and will attempt to harm you before you can do the same. Those in positions of power will come to you and show you how a true leader should behave. Your wants are particularly intense and once you set your sights on a goal, not much can keep you from achieving it. When this happens you can end up with an obsessive sort of tunnel vision until you are finished, often become highly subjective in regards to the matter at hand. Be careful not to become a fanatic. You can be quite demanding of others and attempt to dictate their path for them, though you yourself will not abide by others telling you what to do and should keep this in mind when leading others.
You insist on knowing others intentions and secrets, though will keep your own well-hidden unless you believe it will somehow further your advances. You prefer to be in the most informed position at all times. You crave to experience powerful emotions and are unconcerned whether these emotions are from something beneficial or something detrimental, as long as you can experience these strong feelings. Your romantic partnerships often suffer from inequality as you can be rather dominating and you need to learn to share power, rather than keeping it all for yourself.
You are extremely driven, dedicated, and preserving, though you must keep in mind that not everyone can conjure up these same traits. Try to be patient with others as they are not likely to be able to sustain the stressful working conditions that you are able to. Take the immense energy that you have and release it into something beneficial rather than dominating others, or you will be branded a tyrant.
Despite the above, it is important to emphasise that you are able to accomplish amazing feats if only you channel your energy correctly. The forces you project into the world will be powerful and it is up to you whether you want to generate something beneficial for all or mass destruction.
Strive for a more harmonious atmosphere when dealing with other people; diplomacy will go a long way farther than opposition. Do not burn the bridges you cross on your way up, as you never know who you will encounter in the future. Karma will limit you if you try to use unwholesome techniques when achieving your goals. It would also help you to pay attention to concepts suggested by others; you just might discover a perspective you have never considered. Allow others a chance to release their inner musings instead of answering for them. And finally, keep in mind that being consistently inflexible in your attitude, behaviour, and opinions can create adversaries for you, when you could have had partners.
You are drawn to all things unconventional, untraditional, eccentric, or just plain odd. The old-fashioned way of doing things is not for you and you will not pay old traditions any mind when you are making your decisions. Searching for new experiences, you are always ready and willing to go off on a random adventure. You enjoy keeping up to date with all of the newest technology and often are the first to have the latest gadgets and gizmos. You are very independent and need a great deal of space to venture forward into the world. Progressive and innovative, you strive for change and reform of some sort. You think outside the box and can be madly brilliant with finding creative answers to whatever problem you are presented with. Artistic and highly intuitive, you must find an outlet to express these gifts. You are able to remove yourself from the lower impulses of human nature and call on your more enlightened self for guidance and purpose. Many times situations sort of just happen to you, spontaneously and seemingly at random; you can never quite know what to expect in your life. Some unseen force seems to be protecting you as you can get big breaks just when you felt time were running out.
You are more interested in your needs and well-being than you are with that of other peoples. You readily compete with others and are considered a fighter in spirit. Developing some diplomacy would do you well; learn to work as a team. You can be confrontational and aggressive, starting arguments over the littlest of matters. Easily giving into your urges, you have difficulty with self-restraint. Many times you believe that in order to get what you desire you need to win a battle of sorts. You are always looking out for your own best interest and pushing yourself to the top of the line which can create hostility in others. You insist that you are correct even when you are not, do not foster forgiveness towards others, and have trouble apologising. Energetic and driven, be mindful not to release this in destructive ways by squandering it via meaningless endeavours or being at the whim of your sensual desires. You can be rash, careless, and lacking in patience; try to think things through before rushing full force into things. You dislike being held back in any way and will not abide by others trying to control you in any fashion which causes trouble with authority figures, affecting your advancement in your career. You are highly accident-prone and temperamental, volatile even. Pay attention to how much energy you are exerting as you typically go go go until you drop; find a way to release your energy steadily. Extreme internal tensions and an inability to handle them can cause you to erupt when things do not go as you wanted, especially at those you feel most comfortable with. You can be spontaneous though careless, leading you into trouble, especially financially.
The only thing limiting you from achieving great heights is yourself. Find a way to direct that amazing energy of yours in a beneficial way and success is yours! Though of course the path to glory will insist that you develop discipline, patience, diligence, perseverance, and a strong will. It may be necessary for you to come to terms with your spiritual needs versus what you think you need, as this is causing inner conflict for you. Let go of the lower, earthly ways of thinking and be open to wisdom and spiritual growth. You may find that these tensions cease to exist, allowing you to go forward in a more positive manner. You are brave and confident, now all you need is a bit of self-discipline to pull it all together.

In nature, a goat will strive to climb to the top of the hill and a Capricorn, being half goat, is no different. They will try to achieve great heights on their own merit. Capricorns are conventional, coordinated, systematic, dutiful, trustworthy, sincere, effective, reasonable, controlled, commanding, driven, serious, and willing to wait as long as is necessary to attain their goals. However, they can also be anxious, negative, penalising, doubtful, inflexible, and close-minded (learn about compatibility with Capricorn here). They do well in positions where they must utilise their excellent coordinating talents alongside their diligent nature and honourable work ethic. Coming up short on their responsibilities worries them.
Due to their reserved demeanour, they may seem the lone-wolf type. Capricorns can put up impenetrable walls in order to maintain their safety from harsh realities. You cannot keep them from pursuing their dreams. They will cling to their obligations and take work very seriously. Capricorns feel inadequate somehow and this compels them to work harder to achieve.

If Capricorns are in a bad place mentally or emotionally, they may become punishing or vengeful towards those who have wronged them. Capricorns need a great deal of warmth and affection, though may keep others at arms length, believing they may be wounded otherwise. However, they are exceptionally faithful to those they are closest to. Being esteemed, admired, and appreciated are vital to them.
They feel most secure with a steady cash flow, as they are anxious to lose their material assets. Capricorns are unlikely to take risks in order to gain fortune, they would prefer to take the slow and steady course, investing in a sure bet. Not much will deter a Capricorn from their goal and they can muster enormous fortitude when they have decided on a course of action. Instant gratification is not their style; they are aware that what is truly worth having will require many sacrifices. Working diligently and steadily can revitalise them. Capricorns are also likely to be frugal and enjoy forming collections of items precious or interesting to them. Wastefulness is not something they can abide by. Wasting of their time is part of this; they prefer to spend time in conversation only when they have something they wish to convey.
Capricorns will need to curb their insecurities in order to tap into their artistic potential; self-doubt will limit them. It is imperative that they develop confidence in their abilities and combat negative thinking patterns. Capricorns can accomplish anything if they only put their minds to it; where there is a will, there is a way and Capricorns definitely have a strong will!
Capricorns are able to endure a great many challenges and delays in order to attain their objectives, which is important, as their road will be laden with them unfortunately. Going through these challenges causes them to learn discipline, fostering growth in enlightenment by releasing their focus on material aims. Working may prove to be relaxing to a Capricorn; often they will use this as a form of escape from daily life. However, they can become workaholics if they are not careful. They do not really know how to unwind and are usually at their best when their lives are full of activities for them to do.
Capricorns are considerate and independent. They may not possess the grand charisma that some of the other signs do but they are kind, diplomatic, and caring individuals. They are easily able to empathise with others due to their own difficult emotions. Romantically, Capricorns can be just as enamoured and affected as the rest of them, though they are usually unable to express those feelings outwardly. They will take the time to get to know someone thoroughly before committing to them, preferring to take into consideration long-term goals and values. However, once they are committed they tend to remain so, as they feel they can work through any difficulty if they give it their all.
You are caring, giving, and affectionate when expressing your love and you inspire those close to you to act in a dedicated and faithful manner towards you. Deep down, you may feel like you are a kind of royalty and you expect to be treated as such. You are unable to stand by a partner that you are not proud of; you need to be able to hold them in high regard. Appreciation, and being seen by others, is necessary for you. Being ignored is one of the most difficult things for you to handle and you can find yourself nursing heavy wounds when you are treated in this fashion. You prefer to be direct and honest with others, and vice versa. You are well-liked, giving, distinguished, faithful, motivated and diligent, with a probing mind. The situations that occur in your life, as well as your emotions, tend to be exaggerated to an extent. Unfortunately, at times you are capable of being arrogant, prideful, and flashy, as well as being rather too open and sensitive with your feelings.
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.
In a romantic partner, you are most interested by someone who can increase your personal development in some way, especially your perception or awareness. You prefer your love interest to be out-going, adventurous, full-of-life, and open-minded as you would like to experience all that life has to offer with them, especially if these adventures involve travel. You enjoy immersing yourself in new cultural experiences that can broaden your horizons. It is imperative that you are able to relate to your significant other on a mental or spiritual level and you like to convey your goals, wishes, and values to them. However, romanticism is not your style and your partner may find you a bit too laid-back or informal, which can instil doubt of your intentions towards them. Nevertheless, you are still apt to be idealistic about romantic feelings. There is a tendency towards feeling that the grass is always greener somewhere else and this may keep you from staying with a partner for the long haul; it will be helpful for your partner to keep up the excitement that is felt in the early stages of a relationship or to be able to help you expand your mind, as these will hold your interest. You are compassionate, caring, giving, and a positive thinker with an inclination towards religion which you choose to convey through humanitarian or philanthropic efforts, together with your loved one.
You are assertive, spontaneous, and always ready to start on a ground-breaking new adventure. You dislike being held back or having others control your actions in any way. You make a much better leader than you do a subordinate. Often you are strong-willed, impetuous, and unwilling to wait. When you want something, you go full speed ahead, without paying much attention to any objections or obstacles put in your path. You thoroughly enjoy and seek out challenges that allow you to demonstrate your capabilities. Collaborating peacefully with others does not come easily to you and you can be a bit self-centred, looking out for your own best interests with little regard to others needs; it is all about YOU. You are unable to accept any aid from others as you do not wish to be viewed as weak. You insist that things be done the way you want them to be, whether or not this is the most beneficial direction to take in the matter. Your strongest skill lies in pioneering; you excel in getting the ball rolling, though will opt out quickly when the endeavour takes longer than you expected. Long term dedication to an assignment is not easy for you. It may be best to stick with projects that you can finish in a shorter time frame. Drive, vitality, and zest are native to you. Though make sure to mind how much energy you exert, as you can throw yourself in full-force, only to wear yourself out prematurely. Exercise is important to you as you need an outlet for the immense amount of physical energy you possess; you are likely to be quite fit and healthy. There is a tendency to be accident-prone. Try to mind your temper and desire to rush forward too quickly, without thinking things through first. Develop a strategy for seeing an assignment through to the end before starting a new one.
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.
Learning and acquiring information is important to you, though you may insist that each new piece of data be proven scientifically before accepting it as valid. Also, you will find yourself readily sharing the new information you have acquired with others. Your mental make-up includes a methodical approach to creating, something that you much enjoy doing. There may be a tendency to be impatient and domineering intellectually, as pride is something you need to keep an eye on. Your insistence on always being right may create conflict for you with your family or community and you will often embark on many short-lived intellectual adventures to obtain the constant stream of data you crave. You may also possess ability for the written and spoken word.
You place a high significance on your public image and your need to acquire success may be in the forefront for you emotionally. It is likely that you are somehow involved with the public or womens affairs, especially in a way that allows you to be visible to society; being of use to humanity is important to you. Career pursuits may alternate throughout your life. You are drawn to positions of leadership in your work life due to your strong insistence on expressing your unique authenticity; by mindful of becoming too emotionally dramatic.
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.
You are well able to articulate your creativity in both the written and spoken word. You tend to keep your immediate environment rather copacetic as you have distaste for conflict. Preferring to keep your surroundings harmonious, you can be evasive when confrontations are expected. Because of your amicable, pleasant nature, most will find it easy to be in your company. Being comfortable and tension-free is important to your well-being.
You are gifted with large stores of energy for whatever work you engage in. A diligent, driven, effective and vibrant worker, you may find yourself drawn towards mechanics. It is easy for you to bounce back from any physical challenge though you must try to be more patient with co-workers who are not as naturally gifted as yourself, as you can become easily annoyed. At times you can act rashly due to your frustration and find yourself in dangerous situations; you are prone to accidents in the work environment, especially involving heat of some sort. Trouble with heat is a common ailment for you as you are also more susceptible to high fevers.
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.
Others see you as controlled with a good deal of discipline. You have a more serious nature and tend to be a bit reserved with others, preferring a cool demeanour. This may be due to a harsh or difficult childhood, possibly even an illness that held you back. You are plagued with insecurity and feelings of inadequacy, often believing you were never truly loved. Frequently things seem like a struggle to you and this gives way to a pessimistic view leading you to sometimes struggle with depression. Fortunately, you are very dutiful and a hard worker which allows you to power through whatever obstacle that comes your way. There is a tendency to greater luck in the later stages of life versus the earlier ones, therefore keep moving forward as your hard work will eventually pay off.
Your personal interests tend to be unconventional and divert from the norm. You are an original personality with a good ability to be inventive and imaginative. Due to a strongly independent nature, your romantic involvements tend to be difficult; you can be a bit of an unorthodox rebel when it comes to your romantic pursuits. Relationships with children may also be tense and you may find communication with them challenging; your children are often unusual in some way. You are more interested in your own pursuits than in what society may try to influence. Be careful of what others in your community may say about you as this can prove troublesome for you. This placement indicates spontaneous losses and gains. Try to be mindful about believing no wrong can come to you.
Your career does not tend to follow the usual path; instead you will encounter odd shifts and circumstances revolving your journey towards success. Be careful to stay practical in your endeavours as you are easily swayed into an unrealistic mind-set, daydreaming with rose-coloured glasses on, instead of seeing things for what they truly are. Creativity in one form or another is likely to be part of your profession and you may find yourself involved with art, photography, pharmaceuticals, entertainment, advertising, humanitarian or charitable efforts, or metaphysics. Publicly, your reputation may swing from one end to another, often without a foreseeable cause. It is possible that you felt unwanted or excluded by either of your parents.
Your intuition is very strong, often psychic. You may even feel as though you visit other realms while you are sleeping. Having a strong interest in how and why things work the way they do, you are likely to be drawn to religious studies and philosophical topics. Very independent in your own beliefs, you may need to be careful not to brush off the beliefs of others as this would be unfavourable to you in the long run. Do not become obsessed with your own ideas but rather try to accept other points of view. You have an intense drive to get to the truth, desiring a deep understanding of everything you come across. You may go through a type of rebirth or regeneration through your dreams, spiritual or philosophical experiences, or travels. You may study too hard and cause yourself mental stress; try to pace yourself. In addition, be open-minded to listening to others rather than insisting that you are correct.
