At the exact minute of your birth, the astrological sign that is rising on the eastern horizon is designated the Ascendant or Rising Sign. The Ascendant is how you dawn on the world, how you present yourself to others. If someone were to guess your astrological sun sign, they would guess it based on what you show the world, which is your rising sign. Its the characteristics and personality traits that you put forth for all to see. Its the stained glass window that you project outward for the rest of your chart to flow through.
Those with a Libra rising are typically sophisticated, charismatic, courteous, polite, graceful, diplomatic, pleasing, friendly, creative, affable, prone to indecision, and conflict avoidant. Being alone is difficult for you and you look to others to approve of you. This need may cause you to deny your values in order to win people over. You are also likely to be selfish and egotistical. Refusing others is not easy for you. You will try to evade any sort of conflict and require that things are always in balance harmoniously. Decisions can be challenging for you to make as you prefer to weigh each part of the equation equally, comparing and contrasting, before coming to a conclusion. Debates are enjoyable to you though you keep them conflict-free and pleasant. Outer appearances matter to you. You are lucky in that whatever you require seems to finds its way to you without you needing to put in much work. Making decisions, particularly in your romantic partnerships, is a lesson you will need to learn in your life. Libra is ruled by Venus and its placement in your chart will therefore be significant.
If the planets symbolize the forces and energies that happen in different situations, then the aspects between the planets symbolize how these energies work together and integrate with each other. There are challenging and easy aspects between the planets and it is up to the individual to choose how they are going to utilize the aspect energies for a positive outcome. The aspects between planets are said to speak to each other. Depending on which planets are aspecting each other and the rest of the natal chart, will determine which planet is dominate and which is not in the aspect between them. But ultimately it is up to the individual to decide how they are going to use the aspects of planets in their chart with their free will, in a meaningful and productive way.
You can be unwilling to entertain another persons point of view, preferring to hold tight to your own. Objectivity may also be difficult for you due to self-centredness. You enjoy communicating to others about all the things you love, think, or feel but are disinterested in hearing about other people. You are witty, with a sharp mind and a hunger for knowledge and new stimulation. If you are unable to experience novel situations, you become disinterested in your life; consistent mental stimulus is imperative for you. You are well able to convey your views and can be adept at persuading others, though you need to apply a greater focus while listening to people. Often you are trying to figure out what your next point in the conversation will be and miss out on what was said. You run on a high voltage and may develop little nervous habits. Finding an outlet for your anxiety by use of your hands may alleviate this nervous energy. In addition, try to focus more on what other people are contributing to the situation rather than being immersed in your own talents.
You are an inventive, progressive, mentally quick, artistic, untraditional, intuitive non-conformist who feels comfortable being an eccentric, rebellious activist for change. Highly self-sufficient, you resent others giving you orders in any form. You can be inflexible when it comes to taking other peoples desires into consideration. It is imperative that you are able to live your life in a way where you have complete freedom. Deep down you believe you are unlike the normal crowd, perhaps even as though you are of a different species or from the wrong time period. You will rebel when you feel as though someone is trying to control you, particularly in a romantic partnership. You tend to run on a high frequency and can suffer from anxiety and nervousness. Relaxation is essential, as is channelling your inner tension creatively, in order to remain centred. You easily pick up on things that others may misshints, vibrations, and the like; your intuition is excellent. You trust your gut instincts to guide you. You are talented in finding ways to progress outdated systems. The brilliant mastermind within can be best expressed through discipline, self-restraint, and persistence.
Your mind is continuously racing with fresh ideas for you to try out and you are talented in intuitively creating original concepts. Your thoughts are unusual, alternative, and even downright odd at times and you expect to be unconstrained in conveying them. Progressive developments are a specifically exciting interest for you and you enjoy being one of the first to explore new philosophies, technology, and merchandise. Due to your mind putting concepts together so rapidly, you find yourself behaving impatiently when others need to process things at a slower speed. Theories of science and technology have always come effortlessly to you. You have been gifted with a particularly intelligent, bright, quick-witted, and ingenious mind. However every positive has its equal negative and this ability to think so quickly gives to an anxious, jittery temperament which makes it difficult for you to slow down and unwind. You are drawn to subjects that are of a metaphysical nature as they give your brain something new to dissect and ponder. You become easily disinterested and require variety in order to quench your thirst mentally. Travelling to new places may help to give you the mental stimulation you need. Most of your conclusions are made up of gut hunches, instead of the typical step-by-step thought process that others tend to adhere to. These notions come to you seemingly from thin air though they are the result of your excellent and accurate intuition. You are at your best in situations where the outcome is uncertain and it is necessary for you to adapt and think on your feet. Very independent, you insist on having space to express yourself in whatever way you see fit.
You have a strong will and can be rather passionate. Nothing is impossible for you if you truly desire it. In your mind, you are undefeatable and are not ruffled in the slightest by statistics or challenging circumstances. Inwardly you may be a bit obsessive but you are able to mask your wishes and purpose, as well as the strength of your emotions. Something in your core compels you towards what you consider to be your fate and you strive for acknowledgement of your skills and efforts. You may thirst for control and respect, leading you full steam ahead regardless of the consequences. It is important to you that you are a master in at least one thing. You invoke strong reactions in others as they either adore you or despise you, though either way they will feel something powerful drawing them towards you like a magnet, almost as if hypnotised. It is possible that you may create many adversaries on your rise to success. Be mindful that karma will always come back to you so make sure to put in what you would like to receive. You have immense energy inside and can use this for either beneficial aims or destructive ones, regardless the impact will be great. There is a desire to change things somehow, to reform them perhaps into something that is more in line with your person. You have a powerful personality and may demand that things be the way you want them, though it would be best if you would develop a way to listen to and be fair to other peoples wants as well. You tend to excel in leading roles and assume them almost without trying.
Your memory is superb and you can quickly recall previous moments in time and all of the details involved, including other people. There may be talent in teaching or speaking to the public as you put forth a great deal of emotional energy towards communicating your thoughts. You value education and try your best to gather as much data as you can, attempting to always be in the know when it comes to progressive advances. You would also make for a good therapist because of your excellent listening skills and your non-judgemental attitude towards peoples troubles. People feel nurtured by you and you inspire them to believe in their abilities. You pick up on the subtleties and the unspoken words others have trouble communicating outright, allowing you to convey outwardly the things that will truly help people. Try to make it a habit of writing down your experiences and responses, as this can allow for some personal growth when you look back on them in the future. There may be a skill in linguistics. Mentally you are logical and your thinking is not muddled by your feelings as your mind and emotional state work together harmoniously. Often times, it may seem as though you are speaking other peoples thoughts as they are thinking them, or sometimes even before they are made aware of them, as you are highly attune to other peoples emotional energy. People take comfort in this ability because they can be sure that you really do comprehend their situation. You are able to use the written or spoken word to express your thoughts and the concepts you have created in your mind. All forms of communication appeal to you, as does travelling. You prefer your life to be full of changes and various new experiences so that your mind has something to contemplate and there is always something new to express or feel. You may wish to try your hand as a writer due to this placement bestowing clarity of mind.
Mentally you are prone to both curiosity and suspicion, probing depths to discover whatever is buried beneath. The more you sense someone trying to hide something, the stronger you insist on figuring it out. All of lifes mysteries appeal to you and you are fascinated with death, sexuality, birth, rebirth, the mystical realm, and curing ailments. Despite your insistence that others keep nothing from you, you yourself will not divulge your own secrets or intentions, clutching at the information as though it were a formidable weapon people will use against you if you were to let out the smallest morsel of data. Your probing mind will do well in the psychological fields where you can spend your days unearthing peoples secrets, analysing them, and providing suggestions for healing processes. With keen observational skills, you easily and accurately interpret other peoples true motives and objectives, almost as if you have a spider sense working within you. You are drawn to the supernatural and enjoy reading books or watching films that are mysterious or that contain elements of the paranormal. You certainly have a dark side to you and can become secretly involved in unwholesome situations or circumstances where you need to uncover a shady mystery. However, you do not view these inclinations in this way, rather you just want to discover and understand something new that most others would not be interested in. You are highly influential when you express your viewpoints and can have tunnel vision when you find something you are interested in. Try not to be close-minded when you are in that zone, as allowing an opposing viewpoint into your consideration will teach you more in the end. In addition, you can be a bit high-strung and your nerves are easily affected, causing you to feel frustrated and impatient. Sometimes you push yourself too far and you need to be aware of your limitations and when it is time to take a break and recuperate.
Creativity comes easily to you and you are most successful at reaching your aims when those you care for are there to encourage you. You are able to find a perfect balance between independence and connecting with others. You are self-sufficient, doing just fine alone whenever needed. Previous lives were used to master your emotional reactions and they are now harmonious. Good karma draws good fortune to you in all aspects: status, home-life, friendship, respect, healthiness, and monetary assets. Naturally capable and talented, you soar to the top either by gaining the respect and admiration of those in high places who will aid you on your journey, or you yourself find an area of expertise where you create your own success. Both the external and internal forces at work for you are blended harmoniously, making your life a bit easier than it could otherwise be. All of your challenges are aided by this aspect and despite the obstacles, you will find tranquillity.
This placement bestows an ability to modify society through altering the systems that keep them in place. You will need to choose whether you wish to use this ability to benefit yourself or benefit others; however it is likely that if you act selfishly, you will suffer the consequences. Endeavours involving the public on a grand scale are possible. Somehow, you will impact humanity. You can be strong-willed and diligent if you do not allow yourself to become distracted with juggling too many tasks at once; finish one thing before starting another. Try to keep yourself from straying to unknown paths only for the sake of change. Put into things that which you would want to reap.
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.
Mentally you are responsive, unique, perceptive, imaginative, and think on your feet. You can do well to channel your energies into inventing something progressive or unusual and you are drawn to mystical subjects. Astrology or technological topics fascinate you. Your sense of humour is a bit eccentric at times and you may behave in a surprising manner or poke fun at yourself just to get others to react. You feel a strong pull towards intensely emotive circumstances or anything thrilling and different. You demand your independence and hate to be tied down to anything that will limit it. However, you are often forced to adapt quickly to a variety of different circumstances that can pop up at random for you. Your notions are usually fresh and innovative, and usually can be applied in a way that would strongly benefit humanity. You are also able to view every aspect of a situation fairly. Although, you are often impatient, get bored easily, and do not finish what you have started. Others find you amusing and unique, and you are usually very lucky. Whatever is a deviation from the norm will tend to draw you in, for you seek the exhilaration of trying something you have not experienced before. You are able to see the benefit in monitoring your temper and feelings.
Ardent and passionate, your urges may get the best of you at times. Others are magnetically drawn to you whether you are good-looking or not, though you probably are. People delight in your enjoyable presence and therefore try to keep you around. If someone sparks an interest in you, you will try your absolute hardest to win them over. However, you may instead scare away the object of your affection by pursuing them a bit too intensely. You crave affection and appreciate beautiful surroundings. Engaging in creative pursuits is important to you as you need to focus your energies artistically to combat any internal tensions you may have.
This placement bestows a charming personality and the ability to attract others to you. Highly out-going, you need to spend time with others often; spending too much time on your own may prove difficult for you. You have a strong desire to express love and be shown love in return. However, be mindful of who you express this love to, as others may feel differently than you. You tend to take partnerships very seriously and can be completely crushed when something goes awry, making it particularly important that you are selective of whom you spend your efforts on. This placement can be challenging due to its tendency to create conflicts in your partnerships; you will both love and loathe each other. The emotions are both caring and antagonistic at the same time. Use these situations to inspire you creatively.
Emotionally you are fully charged and this intensity may have a negative impact on your health physically. Try to pace yourself and start to do one thing at time. It is not always easy to share living quarters with you as you often lack patience, become easily agitated with others, and behave in a grouchy manner. It is almost as though you go LOOKING for arguments. A bit like a spoiled child, if you do not get your way, you show your displeasure with fits of rebellious resistance. It would be beneficial for you to keep physically active and disperse the enormous amount of restlessness within you. You are naturally assertive and spirited, easily fighting for the things that you believe in or for others that are being taken advantage of. However, you must develop self-restraint if you are to reach your full potential. Competition spurs you on and you are driven to beat out all others in the game of your choosing or even just in general. Sometimes attracting with honey is far more conducive to accomplishing your goals than using brute force; be more diplomatic when interacting with people. You work diligently, bravely, and energetically. Try to be more lenient on yourself and others when something goes array as no one is perfect, not even you. Sometimes you have built up such a name for yourself that you do a complete turn-around and laze about, expecting your previous work will tide you over. Your anger may be explosive at times, especially when you are wounded on an emotional level, and you must find a way to restrain yourself. Try to think through your feelings before they take over. Your general lack of patience and constant rushing about makes you susceptible to accidental injuries, particularly involving heat or sharp objects. You can be reckless because you do not plan your actions ahead. You have a negative reaction to any sort of perceived restriction on you and can be a bit of a rule-breaker. As a leader, it is imperative that you curb your dominance or you will be seen as a tyrannical dictator rather than a leader. Vengeful thoughts are not healthy for you and you need to release your anger towards others for their offenses. It is likely that you will be wasteful with your financial resources and can be prone to dishonesty.
You are highly imaginative and can easily visualise whatever you can think up. You are able to make your fantasies come true by applying your excellent reasoning abilities. Topics that are related to metaphysics, the supernatural, or alternative medicine tend to appeal to you and you enthusiastically explore them. It is also possible that you are able to heal others by using your hands. You have an amazing awareness of what is going on in your mind on a subliminal level and ability to project it outwards. There is a large amount of artistic talent in this placement and when you feel properly motivated you can create truly inspirational pieces. Science, and its systematic approach, feels foreign to you and you do best in the creative realm, learning by being exposed rather than by traditional methods. Make an effort to visit areas where you can spend time near lakes, the ocean, or other bodies of water as they are a calming effect on your spirit. Extremely sensitive, you have accurate intuition and are easily inspired. It is possible for you to communicate with the spiritual world through your subconscious while asleep.
You are drawn to lifes many mysteries and enjoy uncovering hidden truths, even if there are some risks involved in doing so. You feel happiest when in the midst of an emotionally intense situation and therefore have no trouble handling circumstances where others are emoting dramatically, instead you dig to the heart of the issue and help to remedy the problem. Instinctively you understand that in order to be truly close to someone, emotions must be brought to the surface, no holds barred, and you strive to accomplish this intimate connection. You are not one to toy with someones feelings. Subjects pertaining to religion, science, mythical or mystical studies, sexuality, psychological evaluation, fiction based on scientific evidence, dying, the afterlife, or curing ailments are all fascinating for you. Your strong intuition helps you to truly comprehend what other people are feeling and going through. Gaining knowledge is pleasurable to you and you soak up new data like a sponge. Your feelings run much deeper than what you express to others. You work diligently and are dedicated to doing your job, even when much energy and will are required. Somehow you have a knack for figuring out just what the main issue is in any challenge and how to work through it. Your analytical mind would do well in the field of psychology or therapy, as you do well dissecting peoples thoughts and feelings accurately. Your will-power is exceptionally strong and you do not easily give up.
You are imaginative with a good deal of idealism and an excellent intuition due to your heightened sensitivity. You are caring, warm, kind, empathetic, and enjoy a bit of romance. You are a great listener and others know you will be open-minded and accepting when they reveal their troubles to you. You are able to inspire through your artistic endeavours and talents, and these projects are deeply emotionally satisfying for you. Large bodies of water tend to fascinate you, especially if you can couple this love with a creative venture such as photographing the ocean. You do not mind having to give something up if it means you can aid someone else. In order to remain stable and secure in your emotions, you must find an outlet for the creativity within. You are interested in subjects pertaining to the mystical realm and may even have a knack for this field if you can properly focus your energies. You are very sensitive to the energy around you and can easily be influenced by negative people or circumstances. It would be beneficial for you to stay in beautiful environments with limited tension as much as possible. In fact, you probably go to a great length of trouble to keep tensions out of the interactions you have with others, preferring to always keep your dealings harmonious. You are very giving with your efforts to come to the aid of people who may need you; serving people is part of your path and you value it highly. It is possible that you may have visions of the future while you sleep.
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.
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 have an ability to enlighten yourself through spirituality, whether this ability is conscious or subconscious. Philosophy and acquiring knowledge are important to you and you tend towards idealism. However, you are often accepting of others views, despite them differing from your own. You have keen intuition and a sensitive, creative mind that may lead to mystical abilities.
Those born in your generation have the ability to be of aid to humanity as a whole. Let your intuition guide you in assisting others.

The signs describe in detail how the actor might react, behave or conduct themselves.
Leos are typically regal, brave, loving, influential, giving, fun-loving, positive, motivated, faithful, and jovial (learn about compatibility with Leo here). Unfortunately, they can also be egotistical, narrow-minded, controlling, sluggish, demanding, and unaccepting of others. They prefer being engaged in activities that allow them to use their excellent organisational skills, artistic innovation, and managerial abilities. Leos can sometimes put on a tough façade, when deep down they are rather sensitive and vulnerable. If their significant other hurts them in a vulnerable state, they may suddenly shun the partner and behave in an ill fashion towards them.
Leos are often found with all eyes on them. They enjoy sharing tales and add a bit of pizzazz to their show; having fun is important to them. Though they would prefer to be kind-hearted, if they feel it is necessary to be heavy-handed, they will do so without hesitating. If they ever do behave in a mean manner, they will feel that it is only because they have the other persons best interest at heart.
Do not anger a Leo, as he will suddenly act as though he is the royal ruler of the land and you are his subject. They will need to show you their strength and bravado, but once the storm has passed, the lion will happily forget that there was ever an infraction.
When Leos are in optimal condition, they are caring, fun-loving, positive, and bring great joy to others. They can be very giving, though financial resources may be difficult for them to hang on to without them realising where the money has gone to.
Leos are usually healthy and can bounce back easily from physical setbacks. Be mindful towards fevers, as they can be prone to particularly high temperatures when sick. Usually optimistic, when sadness does hit them, it can hit hard. Luckily, they are quickly able to revert back to their cheerful selves. However, if they are suffering from a lost love, they can suffer deeply as heartbreak is the most difficult thing for a Leo to conquer. Heartbreak may lead to physical ailments of the heart.
A Leo must have a high regard for the person they marry, as otherwise the relationship with falter rather quickly. What matters most is that Leos know they are valued.
You are self-sufficient, opinionated, giving, eager, open-minded, positive, and enthused with an idealism that draws social contacts to you. You can be rather out-going, enjoying comradeship and traveling to distant lands inspires you. Independent and spontaneous with a child-like enthusiasm for adventure, you are always prepared to dive right in to something fun. Regardless of past trials and tribulations, you never stay down very long and will quickly move passed whatever challenges you face, keeping your optimistic attitude that everything will turn out alright. Truth be told, other peoples dilemmas and hurt feelings make you feel uneasy and are difficult for you to handle. Your attempts at trying to make others feel better often make them feel as though you have made light of their concerns or dismissed them altogether due to your extreme optimism. Your platonic relationships may be more important to you than your romantic ones; for you cannot be content in a relationship that does not incorporate a strong friendship. Your mate must be able to help you grow as a person and support your quest towards achieving your goals and desires. It is imperative that you are given a large amount of emotional space. Unfortunately, when you are afflicted you can be self-righteous, narrow-minded, bigoted, biased, self-important, and smug in addition to taking too many unnecessary risks.
Your views are strongly held and you convey them with enthusiasm and flare. The things you believe in are important to your self-identity. You enjoy telling stories and communicate in a caring, engaging, charming, and capable manner; you are a great entertainer. Much of your showmanship is laced with dramaticism and you have signature flair when conveying your talents. You are decisive and artistically innovative; teaching may be an option for you. Confident in your cognitive abilities, others may find you arrogant at times. Try to be mindful of presenting yourself as more than you are, as well as being too fixed in your own exaggerated opinion of yourself; not every act of amusement needs to be praised. It would be best for you to try to be respected for your mental capabilities, rather than your purely entertaining, though perhaps shallow, endeavours. You would do well in politics, leading a team, public representative, or instructing others in some way.
You are patiently loyal to those you love, giving and helpful whenever you are needed. You tend to express your affection through acts of kindness rather than through words or some sort of extravagant romantic gesture. Something about being too emotionally open makes you uncomfortable and youd prefer to be more reserved in your expressions. There may be insecurity that you are unattractive or unlovable somehow. Your own doubt causes you to become fault-finding in your significant other and difficult to please. Beware that you do not wait so long for the elusive perfect partner that you waste your chances at happiness with someone real. You expect your environment to be neat and organised. Developing a way to aid others can help you to counter your tendency to complain and criticise. Despite these tendencies, you are gentle, compassionate, and kind which allows you to do well in professions where you are caring for others.
You take great care in all that you do, making sure each detail is just right. You do not trust others to do as good of a job as you will, and often prefer to just do the job yourself than having to correct each imperfection. You do not mind putting in the extra efforts needed to be certain that you did the best job possible, whereas others usually would not exert themselves in this fashion. Having a task be done in a way that falls short of perfection, is not something you can abide by. You work hard to achieve the correct, effective, specific method for obtaining the best results. However, you may at times restrict yourself from even starting a task that you are unsure you can complete to your high standards. You are excellent at predicting the types of endeavours you can reasonably undertake, though at times you will undervalue your own skills. Talented with time management, you make sure to pace yourself rather than squander your energies. You may find that you are so careful to avoid any possible issue, that you will miss advantageous chances by deeming them too risky. Do not limit yourself because of your self-criticism, reach for the heights and you may surprise yourself with what you can accomplish. Relax and do not let anxiety over the little things cause you too much stress.
You are cunning, quick-witted, and jovial. Experiencing other cultures and new places appeals to you as you are able to learn much from these endeavours. You may have a gift for learning to communicate in a different language. However, internally you possess an anxious tension that you try to counter by nervous banter, communicating excessively, or making commitments that you are unable to follow through on. Working in literature may appeal to you. You are innovative and able to comprehend abstract concepts, as well as enjoy applying your mind to mathematical subjects. You seek out situations that will challenge you and alter your perception or help you grow in knowledge or wisdom. Justice or religious practices may also draw your attention.
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.
Your accomplishments are important to you, and you strive for others to notice and appreciate them. However, you may go one of two ways in regards to your achievements: either you are working hard to please others, or you swing the other direction and give little thought to what anyone else thinks; try to find a balance between the two extremes. You are driven to find some sort of niche you can excel in and exert a good deal of effort to succeed in whatever it is you choose. It is likely that you will encourage others to follow in your example. This placement bestows determination but also a tendency to flatter yourself in regards to your achievements, boosting about your successes. Depending on whether the Sun is negatively or positively aspected, those in positions of power can either greatly aid you in your success, or create limitations for you.
You find emotional security through obtaining monetary and personal resources. Your financial position is largely dependent on your mood; one moment you are spontaneously fulfilling every whim, and the next pinching pennies. It is essential that you are somehow emotionally connected to the role you assume within your career, as this will directly correlate to your success in it. Establishing a true connection with your work allows you to feel a sense of purpose you cannot otherwise attain. You find it important to be noticed somehow, whether this be in the publics eye or within your organization. You are especially suited for sociological efforts or working with women.
Written or spoken communication may be part of your career path as you have an excellent talent for articulating your thoughts, and others are likely to take notice of it. You are very mentally active and physically agile, often being thrown into situations where you must make use of these skills. There is a tendency to be a Jack-of-all-trades and it would be difficult for you to choose only one type of career. Traveling or teaching may be part of your career path.
You are out-going, diplomatic, and welcoming, with numerous supportive social contacts. You must be mindful that your social group is not a bad influence on you, enabling you to indulge in circumstances that are not good for your well-being. Having a way with making others comfortable in your presence, it is important for you to watch out for yourself, as you may be taken advantage of by doing too much to make sure others are pleased. You take great joy in social gatherings and long to unwind comfortably with your friends on a regular basis.
You have many acquaintances as well as a large group of enthusiastic friends, and you are often a leader in social gatherings. There is a tendency to give a lot of yourself to your companions; therefore it is imperative that the people you form strong bonds with do not have a bad influence on you. This placement denotes a probability that either you will try to use your friends, or they will try to use you. Either way, you are quite involved in group events. In addition, you possess strong wants, hopes, and aspirations.
Happy-go-lucky, generous to others and possessing an open mind, you can be inspirational to others. Others often follow you as you easily predict how circumstances will turn out due to your strong intuition and accurate judgement; people want to support your new concepts and endeavours. Philosophy and religion are of particular interest to you, and you are likely to profit from travelling and foreign situations. You may also be drawn to law, justice, or political concerns. You are more apt to find success later in life, rather than in your youth. In addition, your beliefs may be rather fixed or you may find that you lack something to believe in.
Having Saturn in this placement can make material possessions difficult for you to acquire. Knowing this instinctively, you are naturally more responsible, cautious, and frugal with your spending. At times you find yourself saving so much that you forget the purpose of it; we work to live and not the other way around. Give yourself a chance to live a little bit on occasion and try to share with others, as worrying over monetary matters only leads to feelings of unhappiness for you. There is a possibility of material scarcity with this placement as too great of an importance may have been placed on material concerns in a previous life. Likely, you will need to re-examine your beliefs in material matters. You can become tight-fisted with others at times and often harbour feelings that you are not valued, lovable, or required. You must find significance in your own self before others can see it.
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.
You are contemplative and your hunches are usually accurate. You may experience premonitions, though possibly in your sleep as these are rarely conscious. Feeling stuck in a partnership with another person can be an issue for you, and you probably feel as though you are alone in this world. It is likely that you feel a bond with a spiritual being of some kind and that you are part of a universal whole. You are probably interested in new age or metaphysical matters. There may be a theme in your life where you feel the need to either serve others or suffer the consequences of not doing so. Being of aid to those that are held captive in one way or another is also possible. Beware of hidden adversaries that can try to weaken your position. It is crucial that you convey mercy, tolerance, and affection to others.
Your professional life or public image is often affected by unanticipated events, especially situations related to world affairs. You may come across as aggressive in your dealings; allow yourself to develop tolerance, subtlety, and acceptance for others that may not always follow your fast pace. This is particularly important when dealing with the general public or society as a whole. This placement may elicit a need to either benefit society somehow or retreat from it altogether. There is also a possibility towards becoming power-hungry, though using a heavy-handed approach will often lead to failure. Use your many talents and abilities to improve humanity instead. You have a knack for understanding peoples true motivations and intentions and working in the background may appeal to you.
