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 Cancer rising are typically lower on energy than the average person, sensitive, caring, empathetic, timid, reactive, flexible, nurturing, romantic, clingy, shy, moody, emotional, protective, and can be a bit of a hoarder. Premonitions are also likely to be experienced. Cancers usually prefer to do things indirectly and you may avoid confrontations, choosing to direct your energies everywhere but to what is in front of you. The situations that you have encountered in your past tend to weigh heavily on you and you have a tendency to worry that somehow something that you have overlooked will come up to get you. Therefore, you will move ahead in a sideways fashion, evading possible threats. You are always ready to withdraw into yourself if you believe you may get hurt. Your emotions are easily triggered and you feel slighted by minor occurrences that were likely done without any ill-intent. Home is particularly important to you and though you can enjoy going off to see distant lands, you must be sure that you have a secure home base. There is a large streak of sentimentality in you and you find safety and comfort from the things you own as they remind you of the fond memories of your past or the people you love. Your emotional security is tied to your home and the things you possess, which is the main reason why you dislike throwing anything awayfor you, it is like throwing away a precious memory. If you have decided to let someone in, you can become rather clingy, refusing to detach from them. All that you encounter in your life is reacted to on an emotional level, rather than a mental one. You are moody and changeable, similar to the sea. An important lesson for you may be to develop a way to comprehend boundary limitations. Cancer is ruled by the Moon and therefore its placement in your chart will 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 are likely to be emotionally underdeveloped. Opening up to others is not easy for you due to your being unable to move past previous hurts, always fearful that the same will happen once more. You keep both your money and your feelings to yourself. Innately, you know that nothing comes for free and you would rather not pay the price unless it is truly worth having. Rather than expressing your emotions to another, you will tend to purchase tokens of affection, as it seems to be easier for you to handle them rejecting your present than for them to reject you emotionally. You deeply desire to be loved but you are unable to be intimately close to another. Inside, you are insecure and do not believe you are worthy of being loved. It is only when you transform this way of thinking that your life will turn around for the better. You deserve as much love as anyone does, though this needs to come to you on your own. Try to let go of what happened in the past and move forward with your life.
Your demeanour is usually stern and sombre and others may think you generally do not care about much. These observations are untrue as it is more so that you are being careful about who you reveal yourself to. You desire warmth and affection though it is very challenging for you. In order for you to receive affection, you will need to show it first. You cannot purchase other peoples feelings. Letting loose and having a good time without reservation is hard for you. Working diligently towards a practical result is something you can more readily comprehend, but emotions? They confuse you. It is uncommon that you engage in fun just for the sake of fun. Work tends to be fun for you which is baffling to others. Oddly enough, there is the occasional moment where you will distract yourself with something and leave the work to build up. You must find equilibrium between the serious side of life and enjoying yourself.
You may seek out romantic partners that do not treat you the way they should. If you find a way to appreciate the person you are, others will also. Safety and stability are valuable to you though you are unsure how to acquire them. You often worry about losing monetary assets or the people you care for. These feelings may become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Allow yourself to open up to others and forget past hurt. Look your problems right in the eye and deal with them; it is the one path to conquering them.
When faced with much difficulty you can become very pessimistic and down on your luck. Acting responsibly is important though life has put these challenges in place for you to grow in strength and wisdom. You are more likely than others to comprehend that there is more to life than being happy. However, this does not require that you must live in misery. Your loneliness stems from your unwillingness to accept that people do truly care for you. Again, it is likely your own insecurities colouring reality for you. If you want to draw love towards you, then you must first act in a caring fashion.
You are guarded about sharing your interests with others because you are fearful that they will reject you. In your relationships you may be mildly envious or try to possess your partner, as you tend to be so afraid of losing what is yours that you cling to it. However, this tendency only works to distance your partner from you as they feel trapped, creating the exact thing that you were worried about. No amount of force can keep someone that does not wish to be kept. Feelings of love should be allowed to be expressed freely, without control being placed on them. Try to keep in mind that the challenges you are facing in life are only there to aid in your growth.
You are brave, self-confident, full of energy, driven, and optimistic. Competing with others is enjoyable for you and you tend to win using your confidence and intuition. Your strong will has allowed you to learn self-discipline, creating a force that permits you to rise to truly powerful positions. Your physical health is amazing as you heal easily and have endless amounts of energy. However, it is important that you are able to keep active physically or this immense energy of yours will turn destructive. Every effort is made on your part to achieve success in an honourable fashion. You are likely to be a good leader and have a talent for administrating. Hard-working, courageous, and assertive, you gain the admiration of others and will champion for them if they are being unjustly treated.
You are generally happy, accepting, positive, laid-back, and generous. You want to spread some of the joy you feel to others, though at times you may give too much of yourself. In your mind, whatever you set out to accomplish will work out somehow and this can cause you to put in very little effort or concern. If something is difficult, you may exert only sluggish attempts of solving the issue. This is particularly true in regards to your emotions. You are also likely to indulge in tasty cuisine more than you should which causes you trouble in maintaining your figure and can lead to larger problems in the future. This placement bestows you with a pleasing personality, an idealistic viewpoint, an ethical nature, open-mindedness, good fortune, and monetary aid from friends and familial ties. You highly dislike dishonest behaviour and prefer to act honourably at all times; you have a very strong moral compass. You enjoy thinking about philosophy and can be rather devoted to your beliefs even if you do not belong to any specific religion. You are self-assured and do not suffer with the insecurities that many are plagued with; you know who you are and what you are capable of. When you do encounter trouble, it does not keep you down for long but rather you are likely to find your problems quite humorous. In fact, you try to insert a good deal of laughter and joy into your life in general. You hope to see others improving themselves and their situations and you are happy to aid them in doing so if it fosters their advancement. The main concern with this placement is to be mindful of your tendency towards laziness and over-indulgence. You are well-loved by others due to your upstanding nature.
This placement allows for range of different outcomes. It is possible that you will have a partnership with a person that is interested in subjects that you either are disinterested in or have never experienced. Another option is that you are devoted to a project or foundation that irks those closest to you. It is also possible that you will waste your resources or appear pompous. A tendency to over-indulge in sensuous pleasures, especially fine food and drink, can create challenges in your health. Be mindful of your weight and of any issues with your circulatory system. Life will easily bestow you with the things you need and this causes you to be unappreciative of them, as well as lazy. This placement attempts to teach you to find equilibrium between the possessions you desire and spiritual idealism. The beliefs you hold will likely be challenged and you may need to rethink your values. Emotionally dramatic, you can be prone to leaping into love without looking carefully first. Your amorous emotions may be drawn in by material assets or prestige.
However, despite the troubles you encounter, you are generally a warm, giving individual that will always be there to lend a helping a hand to those that require it. You withhold judgement when helping others and people are instinctively aware of this. A harmonious environment is important to you and therefore you would prefer to be accepting of the flaws found in others rather than create tension. Nonetheless, you must be careful not to skirt important issues just to evade conflict or keep from hurting others emotionally; some things need to be said. Work on your assertiveness in order to make sure you are taken care of and respected. Out-going and social, you strongly prefer the company of others to being alone, as spending too much time on your own makes you feel uneasy. You are able to be diplomatic while remaining popular. Developing self-discipline will be beneficial for you.
There is a tendency towards enjoying variety to such a degree that you move from one endeavour to another, without spending enough time on anything to master it. You become easily interested and want to know a little bit about everything, but in order to truly be successful, you will need to discipline yourself. You may also need to watch out for becoming so engrossed and inflexible in your own views and beliefs that you demand others believe the same. Challenging situations will continue to surround you until you learn to be accepting and tolerant of others viewpoints. It is alright to hold a strong belief system, as long as you do not punish people for being of a different mind-set. Be careful that you do not become involved in extreme demonstrations to prove your beliefs are correct, and rather develop a respect for individuality.
You are self-reliant, inventive, and unrestrained with strong resolve and drive to get things done. These traits aid you greatly in your journey towards success. Be sure that you keep to realistic goals rather than taking risks on long-shots. Not everyone can be as mentally quick as you are; therefore you need to practice patience with others who think at a slower speed. You are able to provide a substantial amount of knowledge to benefit others, though you must yield to working at their pace. You have a strongly held belief that you are entitled to your own opinions and viewpoints; it is only logical that the same privilege be bestowed to others.
You like to keep your feelings under a tight reign. This placement helps to balance your feelings even when circumstances are difficult. Others may be frantic during these times, yet you remain calm and collected. You are reasonable and unbiased during stressful situations which help you to solve the underlying issue amidst emotional chaos. This placement allows you to concentrate more effectively. You do not skirt your duties and people know they can rely on you to do what you have committed to doing. You are loyal to those in your circle and to the people you feel close to, supporting them behind the scenes. You dislike being idle and enjoy watching the fruit of your labour. Mentally you tend to stick to the conservative route, letting tradition guide you. Frivolous thoughts for the sake of fun are not really your cup of tea; you take a more sombre approach. However, you are not always able to show your feelings towards those you care for. It would be beneficial if you could develop a more open manner and convey these inner emotions outwardly to them somehow. You are independent and methodical, as well as having a good ability to organise, handle money and business, and behave diplomatically when interacting with people. You are very patient and willing to persevere until you have reached your goal. You are ethical, dutiful, faithful, and fair.
Mentally you are capable of delving into the most hidden of depths. Whether or not they are pleasant, you will uncover whatever secrets are buried beneath. You would make an excellent investigator as you are naturally gifted in the field. Psychological evaluation is another area that you are talented in and there is a strong interest in topics related to the afterlife and mystical studies. You are the sort that will learn one thing thoroughly rather than dabbling briefly all over the map. Despite your expectation that others be transparent with you, you are unwilling to provide the same disclosure to them. You feel most comfortable in situations where the attention is not focused on you and you can do as you please with little interference from others. You are capable of using your hands to heal others if you can properly channel your energies and may do well to try your efforts in massage therapy or chiropractic care. You find a kind of comfort in disassembling and reassembling things, as you have good technical skills and like to see how everything works together. You are drawn to situations, people, or subjects that project a mysterious quality and you are always up for the challenge of figuring them out. When you do come to a conclusion, you are able to clearly express what you have learned. You use your logical, analytical mind and intuitive ability to assess everything that you come across. Mentally you strive to transform and transcend whatever you find. Other people easily recognise your confident dedication to the things you do. If you are interested in a topic, you are able to focus yourself completely in order to absorb any and all information pertaining to it. Highly observant, nothing gets passed you and you are amazingly accurate in your evaluations of the circumstances you find yourself in and the people you come across.
Independence is a challenge for you. You are likely to become dependent on others to provide for you and carry your load, even when you are fully aware that it would be best for you to learn to rely on yourself instead. This is especially true in regards to those you have deep feelings for. You feel uncomfortable and unsafe with the many fluctuations you encounter in your life and this is a large reason as to why you depend on others to assist you.
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.
This aspect presents you with a chance to attain a higher reasoning in spirituality by self-sacrifice and working diligently to aid others. You will be able to put your necessities on the back burner to do what needs to be done for those loyal to you and this kind of service is happily done by you. You can easily combine your idealistic views with realism in a fantastic way. You will often remove your emotions from a situation so that you may finish what youve started. Any dream you aspire to, you will put forth a great deal of effort to accomplish. You are able to get by on mere scraps when you feel it is needed to achieve your aim. Imaginative applied artistry is your specialty. This aspect implies that the native is protected spiritually by karma from a previous life where they had aided others.
You have a tendency to make yourself miserable due to deeply rooted anxieties over being unable to support yourself and possibly losing whatever material possessions you have acquired. This concern distresses you to such a degree that you pinch your pennies, worrying that any moment now it can all come tumbling down. As the anxiety increases, you find yourself sacrificing your excitement, your giving nature, and your trust in the world. Try to relieve your apprehension by relaxing more and doing the opposite of your inclination; GIVE. Do not lose trust in the universe to look out for you and keep you safe. Have faith and you will find yourself surrounded with what you need.
There is a possibility of setting your goals higher than you can achieve. This sort of mentality sets you up for a fall and when you do inevitably fail, you are unable to hold onto your initiative and motivation to continue with your aspirations. Keep in mind that you can accomplish a lot by taking things one day at a time; slow and steady wins the race. Allow yourself a realistic timeframe to aspire to, as time is the one thing you have the most of; do not fight against it, but become in sync, flow with it. Dismissing your aspirations will result in endlessly jumping from on unfinished project to another; learn self-restraint and complete the things you begin. You may feel an internal tension for stimulation which can have you trying to do too many assignments at once. The most important thing for you to learn is to be satisfied with yourself despite your possible imperfections.
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 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.
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.
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 can be a great comfort to others due to your stable emotional nature. Not many things will get under your skin; you are easy going and like to preserve harmony. It is unlikely that you will have many emotional outbursts. However, once you have become accustomed to something emotionally, it is difficult for you to alter your feelings. You desire to feel secure and this will usually stem from obtaining material assets. It is possible that you will hold on to situations from the past or be sentimental with your possessions. You crave warmth and affection, as this will help counter your insecure emotions. However, at times you may become clingy and suffocate those you are closest to. Trust and faithfulness is imperative to you in your relationships and you portray these to your loved ones. This placements denotes a tendency towards overindulgence in creature comforts and delicious foods, as this somehow sooths you deep down. Weight issues may become troublesome for you. You may use these sensual indulgences to mask a dissatisfaction or lack of affection. You are diligent, unwavering, and capable. You have a gift in nurturing and things seem to flourish around you. Practical work, possibly where you can be outdoors in nature involved in manual labour, is likely to suit you. You do not mind following others, as long as they lead with a soft hand. Disease and physical discomfort are worrisome for you, as both are things you actively detest. Do not become so comfortable that you refuse to alter a situation that needs to be altered; try to remain flexible.
Detail-oriented with a quick, sharp mind, you are able to execute tasks in a painstakingly careful and thorough fashion. You are effective, investigative, sensible, and reasoned; you keep your feet on the ground. Your practical, rational nature gives way towards a possible career in mechanical or technical work, where you need to possess a set of specific abilities. Abstract reasoning is not particularly interesting to you if it cannot be applied in a handy, concrete manner. Though you are detail oriented and enjoy investigating everything that comes your way, there is a likelihood of being blind to subtleties; you need things to be expressed to you directly rather than having to assume or guess at hints. You excel in endeavours that require an exact, accurate thought process, precise technique, or effective, structured administration. There is a tendency towards being too hard on others to meet your perfectionistic requirements. Your strengths include dependability, flexibility, methodical approach, and attention to detail. However, you are also prone to getting bogged down with a negative attitude and cynical, prejudiced behaviour as well as having a tendency to grumble and gripe when things are not to your liking. Be mindful that you do not lose the big picture when focusing on the details.
You are delightful, appealing, pleasant, polite, well-mannered, thoughtful, composed, with an ability to keep things peaceful rather than clashing with others. However, this may lead you to having trouble standing up for yourself when you need to. Though Libras are usually harmonious, Venus in Libra can be quite merciless in romantic partnerships as they know exactly what to say to get what they want. You have a way of acquiring the things you need in your life almost out of thin air. Whatever is necessary to you, tends to find its way to you and people are particularly drawn towards you; make sure that you remember to value these things that gravitate to you. You feel a strong need for things to be peaceful in your life, so much so that you will sacrifice too much at times. Confrontation is difficult for you and you will often pretend nothing is the matter rather than continue with any sort of disharmony. As a marriage partner, some people enjoy a bit of tension but you prefer someone that will equate to you and easily mesh with your character. You like your partner to be gentle, sensitive, and refined. A rough and tumble sort just isnt your style, you need someone that knows how to act in polite company, someone diplomatic and polished. It is easy for you to relate to people and this creates a pull towards you. You are likely to be creative or artistic somehow, especially with your voice. Laziness is something you may have to keep an eye out for as you prefer to stay comfortable rather than putting in the hard work required at times. Indecision is also a typical issue for those with this placement. You often do not like to be alone for very long and seek out others to keep you company.
You hold a large amount of both mental and physical energy. Always on the go, buzzing from one place to another, engaged in your many interests, sometimes you are involved in more than one activity at the same moment! With your lively mentality and curiosity, you require a large amount of stimulation to keep you from getting bored. You seek out new data and love to learn about anything you can get your hands on. It is also of great fun to you to engage yourself in challenging, competitive conversations with others where you can show off your wit and intelligence. You may find yourself suffering from nervous tensions due to your overly active mind, and it would be beneficial for you to establish some sort of exercise routine to relieve the pressure. You are likely to be animated and expressive, often communicating using your hands. You probably enjoy working with the hands somehow and it is possible that you do not have a dominant hand preference. At times you can become so excited about an opportunity that you will venture forward without thinking things through; try to slow down long enough to obtain a clear picture of the situation before entering into it. You dislike standing still and may engage yourself in activities that are not necessarily wholesome or beneficial, just for the thrill of having something to do. Exploring distant lands and cultures is enjoyable to you as you can acquire knowledge from each new situation. There is a tendency towards being prone to accidents involving your arms or shoulders, particularly accidents involving excessive heat. Many times these misfortunes could have been prevented had you been more patient rather than rushing to get things done. It would be best for you to stick to shorter assignments as you work well for brief, intense amounts of time but encounter difficulty if you must sustain your energy and interest for extended periods. Often you will try to multitask, though end up taking on more than you can realistically complete. You dislike routine and require diversity in your projects and in your life in general. You are mentally quick and bright and are interested in playing games or somehow testing your mental agility. Mental competition with others tickles your fancy and you have more stamina for mental activities than you do for the physical sort. On your journey to success, you prefer to utilise your excellent social skills, intellect, quick-wit, astute observations, and ability to articulate yourself. You have a robust sense of humour that tends towards the dark side. Try to pace yourself as you may throw yourself into things with full concentration, only to find you cannot sustain the energy and are unable to continue; working a bit more slowly and steadily will allow you to better keep your word.
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.
You are driven, disciplined, and orderly. While working, you can be very diligent, effective, and willing to wait as long as is necessary to reach your goals. Being dependable is important to you and you are likely to take a more serious approach to life in general. Instinctively you comprehend that everything worth having requires a sacrifice and that pleasure can be overrated. However, work-life balance may be a particular challenge for you. You easily comprehend abstract ideas and are able to convey them in a way that is understandable to others. It is possible that you may become a workaholic as a result of feeling desperately alone or as though you are not good enough somehow. Status and success may be so valuable to you that you sacrifice more than you should in order to try to attain them. It would be beneficial for you to curb your power-hungry tendencies as they cause you to think only of yourself.
The Planets in astrology symbolize what is being addressed. They behave as actors in a production. What is happening on stage? The Houses in astrology are the stage. They ask the question where? Where is the action? In the home, in health, in the career or in the marriage, to name a few. The Houses tell the story of where the action is happening, what type of people are involved and what sort of environment it is.
You aspire to obtain power through material gains and your natural talents, as it is important for you to be highly regarded and worthy of respect. Motivated and giving, yet you can be prone to excessive spending and in turn may find yourself being domineering or controlling with your possessions, and sometimes with others as well. You may also harbour feelings of being unloved or unworthy, if an aspect is afflicted with the Sun.

Your emotional security is tied to your position in a group setting; you need to feel like you are included, otherwise you will suffer with destructive emotions and insecurities. You may find yourself placing a large amount of effort into humanitarian endeavours as you enjoy nurturing others, especially in group situations. Your career is likely to involve social networking in some way. Perhaps you will acquire your professional position due to your acquaintances or they will be important to you during your career, often sticking around for a long time to come. You may wish to heed the counsel of your friends as they may be more valuable to you than that of a professional.
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.
