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 Scorpio rising are typically reserved on the outside while intense on the inside, they are private and full of mystery, have a strong will, can be quiet, though they are brave and dedicated, unyielding, creative, independent, disciplined (though not always with their desires), and may be difficult to read. The soul of the individual with the Scorpio rising is fighting a battle between their lowly physical desires and enlightenment. In the end, the lower self must yield and be reborn, rising up from the ashes to a higher understanding. You will be involved on all levels, mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Outside you seem cool and unfazed, though inside there are intense emotions ever-present; you are a very deep person. You insist to be made aware of other peoples secrets though you will not disclose your own, preferring to remain quiet as to your intentions. You have a sharp mind and enjoy investigative endeavours. You insist on penetrating every hidden cavern, understanding the ins and outs, why and how. You are very determined when you apply yourself, strong-willed, and can conquer any obstacle, even if the obstacle is you. You must move past any possessive, resentful, or envious tendencies. You are drawn to subjects that incorporate mystical topics, sexuality, the healing arts, or death. When you are good, you are very very good, but when you are bad, you can be a complete scoundrel. You must develop a way to forgive others as this is an important life lesson for you. Scorpio is ruled by both Pluto and Mars and therefore their placement in your chart will be significant.
Shhh! When it comes to sex, Aquarius is not much for routine, nor for making things simple. Read all about Aquarius 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.
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.
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 have a good head on your shoulders and keep your feet firmly planted on the ground, taking life seriously and applying self-control, patience, and hard effort to achieve your goals. You are aware that anything worth having may require some sacrifice and time. Effective, detail-oriented, and organised, your word is your bond as you have a realistic view on what can and cannot be achieved. Your ability to focus allows you to work diligently until you have completed your task and when you do something, you make sure to do it right. Highly capable, you succeed at whatever you decide to fully take on. You are dutiful and never skirt your responsibilities. However, many times you take certain actions only because you feel as though you are obligated to. You have a timid or quiet sort of demeanour, though this does not make others feel uneasy when in your presence. Being the centre of attention is not something you seek, as you are not interested in displaying yourself for others. At either home or your work environment, you prefer to have things be neat and orderly. There is a likelihood that you may prosper by those more advanced in their age. People in respectable positions tend to want to see you succeed as they are intuitively aware of your dedication to all that you undertake. Leadership comes naturally to you and you understand just what needs to be done to further your goals. Mentally you are realistic, thoughtful, and demanding. You do not take well to others telling you how to do something as you prefer to think through it yourself thoroughly, analyse it, and come to your own conclusions as to what needs doing and how.
You are controlled and patient, able to persevere through difficult times and put forth a great deal of effort to attain your goals. You endure where others would falter. Innately, you understand that nothing worth having is given without some sort of sacrifice and you are willing to invest your time and energy fully when you have committed to an endeavour. The things you strive for are firmly held in reality and you will usually approach them in a systematic, organised fashion. Highly ambitious, you would make an excellent leader and administrator. However, you are most comfortable working out of the lime-light and produce the best results when on your own. You have a good head on your shoulders though you may sometimes work at a slower pace than others. This slower work pace is likely due to you not wanting to miss any details in your work. Anything you start on, you intend to go the distance. Be careful not to become resentful from holding in your frustrations; find a way to express these upsets to those that have caused them and then let them go. You are a good mix of daring yet cautious. In your past life, you were able to find equilibrium between what you wanted in the moment and your duties. Socialising is difficult for you as you are usually a bit distant with others. Despite your ambitions, you are not power-hungry but rather just wish to do a good job.
Less detail-oriented and more of a generalist, you prefer seeing things in their entirety. You prefer focusing on how everything will fit together in the end rather than getting stuck on the miniscule details that would never get you anywhere. Your tendency towards positive thinking can at times cause you to commit to more than you are able to supply in the end. You may over-estimate your own talents and capabilities and will express these inflated visions to others. Sometimes you seem to be unable to keep your mouth shut, even repeating yourself again and again during one conversation because you feel as though there is a possibility that you were misunderstood or that others did not hear you. In addition, you will compulsively do something and then go back to make sure you had actually done it, for instance turning off the stove or closing the back gate. You may lack practicality due to your inclination to dream big. Travelling is likely to appeal to you as it aids you in discovering new information. Philosophy and any subject that allows some sort of intangible speculation is going to be of interest. You do not need to be prompted to share your thoughts with others as you will do so readily of your own accord. You like to pull apart someones argument even though you may actually feel the exact same way as they do on the matter at hand; for you, debating is seen as a good time had.
Mentally you engage in pattern-oriented thinking where you put together things that others may feel are unrelated and have a preference towards viewing the entire puzzle instead of spending too much time on each individual piece. You crave learning new bits of information and it does not matter to you whether this is done through traditional methods or self-study. When you have discovered a new bit of data you excitedly express what you have learned to others and would make an excellent educator. If you do decide to go the route of educator, you will likely acquire knowledge from your pupils just as often as they do from your lessons, as you have a curious mind and are always searching. You may also have a flair for the written and spoken word as well as publications of all kinds. It can be almost too easy for you to sell items, due to others instinctively trusting you to act honourably in regards to what you are selling them.
It is probable that you will often conjure up some interesting endeavour yet never get the idea out of your head and into practical application. In fact, it would be best if you could team up with another person who wouldnt mind doing all of the grunt work required to implement these brilliant ideas of yours. You have a straight forward way of thinking and communicating and would never purposefully try to dupe anyone. The positive attitude and belief in yourself and your abilities will aid you in your success. However, there are moments when you will not budge mentally and these need to be watched. You dislike doing the same thing day in and day out and look for ways to diversify your activities. Be mindful not to spread yourself too thin and wind up knowing only a small bit about many subjects, yet never mastering one. Although this type of expertise may appeal to you and if that is something you are comfortable with, then by all means continue in this fashion.
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.
You are giving, caring, charitable, and would readily share whatever assets you might have. For the people you care for, you would quickly extend both yourself and the material items in your possession, however you will usually only do so if it isnt too much trouble for you. A luxurious, stylish, relaxing environment is essential to you and you refuse to do any manual labour. Your charismatic, pleasant, polite demeanour is perfect for hosting company. Good karma from a past life assures you luck with your finances and acquiring assets. There is an inclination towards indulging yourself extravagantly and behaving in a lazy manner; try to curb these habits. At times, life fulfils your needs and desires with so little effort on your part that you may not value what you are given. With regards to your health, you are susceptible to putting on weight due to your liking of tasty food and drink. You are a tender-hearted, out-going, friendly type who avoids conflict and enjoys exploring beautiful, distance lands. It would be most beneficial for you to learn to appreciate what you have and to stick things out even when they are difficult sometimes.
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.
You are self-sufficient, unconventional, open-minded, unusual, and a bit of a rebel. This placement boosts your ego though may also create selfish behaviour and inability to discipline yourself. Your disposition can change quickly from one thing to another and you may feel as though you are an outsider. There is a difficulty in sticking to one project until completion, as you move rapidly between one task to another, unable to focus your energy. Unreliable at best, others feel as though they cannot trust you to keep your word. You tend to act on impulses, trying to channel your inner tension and nervousness. You may be accident-prone due to your careless actions and lack of patience. Changes in your life happen often and suddenly; the unpredictability tries to teach you spiritual wisdom. You may be interested in technology or mystical and astrological subjects, though are unable to stand by them for very long. Independence to live your life the way you please is of utmost importance to you and you strongly desire to venture out into new experiences and random adventures. There is something inside of you that urges you to challenge convention by behaving in eccentric, sometimes shocking ways. You strive to alter whatever you come across, regardless of whether or not you actually have a superior plan. Others find you strange and you may feel as though you are an alien living among a different species. However, this does not seem to faze you, rather it inspires you further. You can be selfish and must learn to consider other peoples needs and feelings. Try to pay attention to, and truly absorb, what other people are saying before you come to conclusions. Your mind is very active and you need constant new stimulation otherwise you lose interest quickly; challenges are always welcome as they keep your brain busy. Your intellect is well developed though you may wish to work on your emotional intelligence. In your mind, you are correct and others just arent. Develop a way to monitor your urges, rather than acting thoughtlessly.
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.
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.
Aquarians are typically social, unique, sensitive, open-minded, unconventional, unusual, self-sufficient, logical, ready to lend a helping hand, and they require a great deal of personal freedom to explore (learn about compatibility with Aquarius here). However, they may also be cold, detached, difficult to pin down, blunt, defiant, stiff, alternative, extreme, weird, fickle, and random. An Aquarius will enjoy working on projects that will incorporate innovation and require applying unbiased methodology.
Aquarians enjoy informing others of the many things they have learned in order to benefit humanity. Being a part of a group and involved in team work is where Aquarius feels most at home. They enjoy aiding others in a way where those they help can develop self-sufficiency.
Aquarians can be a bit contradictory; they are out-going though removed, they are caring though aloof. This detached manner does not necessarily indicate that the Aquarius is unconcerned though. It is more so that an Aquarius is likely to be interested in humanity on a grand scale, rather than just one person. Aquarians do not require much in the way of ego boosting, they are happy to keep out of the limelight, though they are undaunted if they happen to find themselves the centre of attention; they tend to be disconnected from their egos.
Transforming old-fashioned, conventional ideas into something fresh and different is exhilarating to an Aquarius. They can be excellent at seeing advancements that others may be blind to, and though they are idealistic, can hold great wisdom within. Their fondness regarding their social circle can inspire them to try to positively influence or change the lives of those around them for the better. However, at times the very people they try to aid do not see their intentions and rebel against their efforts. Often Aquarians are progressive, however at times they can simply be nonconformists.
Aquarians can be diligent workers though they may not always have the get-up-and-go required to complete their endeavours to the end and may tend to forfeit before truly getting off the ground. Mentally they are logical, methodical thinkers, analysing the data before them and easily arriving at the truth of the matter. Aquarians can be viewed as absent-minded professors, working with large sets of data to invent something profound, yet sometimes forgetting the essentials.
They are typically well-liked and popular and do not involve themselves with shallow chatter or become upset over trivial matters. Aquarians may prefer to keep the atmosphere harmonious, not likely to engage in disputes unless they are needed to support an important viewpoint or idea. They will also be the first to stick up for the weak, minority, or the underdog. Aquarians are often so open to new concepts that they will become frustrated with people who refuse to at least listen.
There is a built in desire to stand out from the usual crowd somehow, and this causes Aquarians to often say or do outrageous things just to get a rise out of others. Though Aquarians prefer to keep an open schedule, they can adhere to a routine if they feel it is truly necessary. However, time management is not a natural talent of theirs and they may not always show up at the designated time.
Aquarians do not enjoy being treated as objects to possess; because they typically give others a large amount of freedom, they would like theirs to be respected as well. Due to Aquarians being disinterested in how others see them, they are unlikely to judge others.
In romantic relationships, Aquarians tend to prefer a partner that will engage them in intelligent conversation and provide mental stimulation. Marriage is not something that a typical Aquarius takes lightly as they prefer to have their freedom and often shun commitments. However, once an Aquarius does commit, they will likely stick to their decision. Though they may be reserved in expressing their affection with the loved one, especially if not in a private place, they can be very devoted and trustworthy partners.
Flexibility and a tendency towards being fickle during your assertions are prevalent in this placement. You are quick to anger and may come across recurrent disturbances due to your moods. There is a predisposition towards doing things in great haste and if, heaven forbid, they take longer than you would prefer, you can find yourself in an instant rage. You are strong-willed, impulsive, hasty, unrestrained, and have an unpredictable temper. It is unlikely that you will keep things in, as you prefer to speak your mind, letting everyone know just what you are thinking and where they stand. However, be mindful not to become controlling over others when your moods flare up. You will likely strive to be the centre of attention or at the least, in control of the situation. You dislike having to receive aid or pity from others in any way, as you feel this comes across as a weakness. There is a probability that you will begin endeavours with zest, only to leave them incomplete when your excitement cools. You are self-sufficient, brave, and always up for an adventure. You dislike hearing others whine and grumble as you are prepared to engage whatever you encounter. It is important for you to get enough physical exercise as this allows you a positive outlet when your emotions are running high. You are often the first one to forge ahead into new undertakings. You may use your successes to hide deep rooted feelings that you are somehow not good enough.
The way you process, receive, and convey information tends to incorporate creativity, compassion, sensitivity, diplomacy, and idealism, while displaying prophetic tendencies. However, when afflicted you may become an overly-emotional, day-dreaming procrastinator who sluggishly goes about life half-sound. Motivating yourself to do something perceived as difficult can be met with formidable subconscious resistance and you may find yourself somehow distracted, skirting your responsibilities, and unable to organise yourself. Artistic ventures are more apt to ignite your passions than technical endeavours. You may turn your nose up at traditional methods of education yet find yourself almost absorbing information from thin air when you are truly fascinated by a topic. The energies that you encounter in your environment have an immense influence on you and therefore you must be mindful of the situations you surround yourself with. Occasional seclusion from the world is necessary for you to replenish your inner balance and serenity. However, do not cut yourself off to such a degree that you become obsessed about your own short comings, as you can tend to wallow in despair if left alone for too long. You may find that you heal better through alternative methods such as visual aids or massage therapy. Creative or artistic subjects will usually hold your attention, especially those involving the written word, acting, or music as you can be quite imaginative. It may be easier for you to convey your thoughts in creative ways rather than articulating yourself verbally; you are a bit scatter-brained and your speech may jump around, making you seem less intelligent than you really are. You are more likely to be guided by your intuition than being forced to accommodate concrete conclusions based on hard data. Often you understand how others are feeling prior to them understanding it themselves. You may at times become so lost in your own internal world that you are blind to the physical state of things going on around you. For you, nothing is impossible and you have a fantastic way of keeping your mind open to possibilities. Non-physical realms exist to you the same way that the physical realm does and your initial inklings about others are unusually spot-on. This gut intuition of yours does not seem to require hard data to be accurate; you just get a sense of things and people. Your thoughts may go down many unexpected roads which affect you a great deal; therefore it would be most beneficial for you to focus on staying positive mentally.
You are unlikely to be demonstrate of the romantic feelings you hold for your significant other, preferring a more careful and guarded approach. Love is a serious business for you and frivolous, insincere relationships are not appealing. However, you strongly value other peoples opinions of you and desperately need warmth and recognition, despite seeming disconnected. You desire a partnership that will be authentic and stand the test of time. Your views towards love and relationships are conventional and you appreciate traditions. You are likely to stick with your partner through thick and thin, remaining loyal even during trying times. It is probable that the person of your choosing will be more mature than you as you seek out those that will be dependable and supply the security you crave; there may be a significant difference in age. You are faithful, patient, reliable, dedicated, and unwavering. It is possible that you will judge the value of your relationship on material matters, possibly committing only when you believe the partnership will provide you with monetary means or raise your social station. There is a self-protective streak that can limit you when you would like to move forward in your relationships. If Venus is negatively aspected, you may be overly afraid, envious, detached, scheming, or prone to thinking only of yourself. You may feel overwhelmed with a need to succeed or raise your social status.
Mars in Libra is a challenging placement and you are often unsure whether you would like to be assertive and dominating, having things within your control or whether you will prefer to avoid conflict at all costs, compromising everything you hold dear in the process. If Mars is positively aspected, you will be well-liked by others and enjoy a pleasant social life, especially with the opposite sex. However, if Mars is negatively aspected, others may view you in an unpleasant way and you will find yourself having to defend yourself as well as enduring challenging, unbalanced, unreliable romantic relationships where you manipulate others just for the fun of it. Either way, you will be strongly drawn to the opposite sex. One moment you seek harmony with others, the next you are baiting them into a rivalry. You strive to find a way to be self-sufficient and speak your mind, while at the same time work with others in a cooperative fashion. Often you become tense due to having to bend to others requests, when you would rather be free to do as you wish. At times you may find yourself frozen when you are unsure whether or not others will approve of your actions. Regardless, you do not like to be alone. You need to acquire your objectives by connecting to and working with people. Despite your dislike of disharmony, if you believe someone is being taken advantage of, you will speak your mind; this trait may lead to an interest in justice. You will shy away from any sort of extreme behaviour, as you need to keep balance in your life. You will likely take a steady pace to achieving your goals, rather than over-exert yourself. You are usually diplomatic, observant, eager, and easy to get along with though at times you may be touchy and start debating with others. You may need to work on your tolerance and negotiation skills.
The best way for you to grow is through benefiting humanity or enlightening others. You believe that everyone is connected and that what harms one of us, harms the rest. You are compassionate, giving, amiable, modest, unobtrusive, and prophetic with a quiet humour and excellent intuition. Spiritual matters are of particular significance to you though you must carve your own road to truth. Occasional seclusion from the world is healthy for you as you may need to sooth the tensions you feel internally. You feel a strong urge to aid those that are less fortunate than yourself and may be involved in humanitarian efforts; your presence allows others to have faith that somehow things will work out for the best. You can become effective in the healing arts, if interested. Being out in nature is a favourite pastime, and you have an affinity for animals, especially those of a larger breed. When afflicted, you can be too emotionally sensitive, embellish facts or stories, over-indulge, prone to excess in general, and become wrapped up with the long-gone joyful moments of the past.
Mentally you are rather serious and intentional, with great ability to focus. You are an excellent coordinator and easily decipher complex situations while finding realistic resolutions to whatever difficultly is presented to you. Acquiring knowledge is something you thoroughly enjoy spending your time on. However, you must be mindful of a tendency towards pessimistic, overly sceptical, and gloomy thinking. Anxiety may become an issue for you and there seems to always be sensitivity with your lungs or trouble with oxygen in the system. Take care to keep the air circulating in your bedchamber. The influences of Saturn in this placement will stabilise the typical fickle behaviours of Gemini and allow you to be more mentally balanced. Saturn in Gemini can be very beneficial though you must try to stay positive about what may come to pass. To achieve success, it is necessary for you to cultivate a more systematic way of thinking and behaving.
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.
Family ties are important to you in this placement. You often search for and enjoy collecting possessions that tie to you to where you came from, a way of clinging to your past. Family relations and your home life instil a deep sense of personal security for you and there is likely a strong influence from the parental figures in your life. Your living location may change frequently as you search for an ideal location to put down roots. In your career, there will be an emphasis on things to do with the home; you may even work from home or create a home-like environment in your office as this will allow you to feel comfortable and secure.
Mercury in this placement gives you a clever, observant mind that is able to absorb information like a sponge. Quick and attentive, as well as gifted with versatility; you can be a jack-of-all-trades. It is likely that you will go through many short-lived adventures, but in time you will be able to bring your ideas to fruition due to your ease at articulating yourself through both the written and spoken word. Being very detail oriented, you may venture into a career in teaching or technology.
You appreciate beautiful and creative things and spend a good deal of your financial resources acquiring them. It is important to you to have your lavish comforts. You may not always wish to put in the work required to obtain these ideals, but somehow you are able to attract what you need regardless. Often times you will gain financially through a personal relationship of kind or another.
You are assertive and highly motivated to achieve in your career. You aspire to reaching the top and it is likely that you will, as you have great administrative and managerial capabilities. You prefer to be the reason for your own success, leading yourself rather than following others. Self-sufficient and goal oriented, you may encounter some tension with those in higher positions at work, your parents, or other authority figures. You are best suited for working in an environment where the challenges vary, rather than being stuck doing the same thing day in and day out.
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.
You are often drawn to a more mature partner, someone who takes life seriously. Your relationships require you to be dutiful and put in a good deal of work to keep them. There is some sort of repressive element present in your partnerships, as you may have unresolved karma from your past. Your perseverance tends to pay off as your relationships usually go the distance.
This placement warrants you to enhance your consideration and compassion in relationships. Though you are likely to be tentative to enter into a commitment, once you do so, you may find yourself unable to leave it regardless if the circumstances are positive or negative. Love is important to you but you are more inclined to marry for security. Your partnerships force you to learn to monitor and control yourself.
Spontaneity is difficult for you in regards to relationships, as you find yourself taking relationships rather seriously and decisively. You want a partner that will further inspire you to become more responsible and driven to achieve your goals. There may be a preoccupation with the male parental figure in your life if you are a woman, and this will play into your choice of partner as they may take to organising your life for you.
Often afraid of the weight that a marriage can put upon your shoulders, you may prolong entering into the union. If Saturn in your chart is positively aspected, you are likely to find a partner that is loyal, honourable, stable, motivated, dependable, determined, and reasonable, though perhaps not very verbally affectionate as they may believe actions speak louder than words.
However, if Saturn is negatively aspected, there is a likelihood of suffering through discontentment in your marriage. Whatever mistreatment you inflict upon your partner, will equally affect your happiness. This placement also denotes a tendency towards getting married more than once, often withstanding through discontentment or an absence of love the second time around. There is a possibility that you preferred a different partner but decided to settle. The person you stay with may be rather reserved in affection, may be hyper-critical, close-minded, and withdraw from communication with you. They may also be a heavy weight on your shoulders or perhaps they are a good mate but often suffer from trouble with their health. Another possibility is marrying someone who lost their previous spouse in death.
Clever and independent, you do well working for yourself. You are often unable to let your co-workers connect with you and can find yourself lacking patience with them. A typical nine to five job is not for you as you require your career be a bit unusual or at the least, set in an unusual environment; diverse conditions are appealing to you. You are a dutiful and inventive worker, though you can at times work yourself too hard which can result in undue stress and anxiety for you. Your nerves may cause you great deal of tension and you must find a way to sooth yourself. There will be continuous fluctuations to your health.
Your mind intuitively absorbs information instead of accessing it in a conscious, step-by-step method. You have an artistic way of thinking that you filter through your strong idealistic views. Your thoughts come to you in vivid flashes and are enhanced by your rich imagination. You may find you are intuitively aware of things before they happen and can often accurately predict the future. It is easy for you to sense what is happening in others minds before they do. Because most of your knowledge is acquired in an intuitive way that deviates from conventional methods, you can find yourself feeling insecure and anxious as you are unable to explain where it come from. Your mind can put you into a dream-like state that you indulge in to the point of avoiding your duties; you can be quite a procrastinator. Try to be more reliable and especially avoid further escapism through substance abuse. There may be unresolved issues with family and other relations from a past-life that will need to be addressed.
Your interests tend to be uncommon. You are capable of expressing yourself originally and imaginatively. The ability to create is important to you and you would do well to find a creative endeavour to satisfy this craving rather than conveying it sexually, as you are apt to do. Your romantic life seems to denote a preoccupation with sex and there may be underlying tensions to do struggles for power. You may find it a challenge to understand your children, and vice versa.
