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.
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.
There is a tendency towards selfish behaviour where you act in accordance to your own wishes without much thought to what other people may need. You can be arrogant in your wants and often will not assist people if it will be in any way inconvenient or costly to you. However, if you could learn to curb your selfish behaviour, you are able to use your dedication and drive to benefit anyone who may request your aid. If you are able to do this, you can go the opposite route and remove your own desire completely, passionately devoting yourself to a cause or another person. You must choose which journey is the right one for you.
You are driven, innovative, resourceful, and confident. Being successful is important to you though others may view you as demanding and overly assertive when you are working towards your ambitions. Opportunistic and unafraid, you regularly search for ways to learn and improve. Travelling can be a great opportunity for you to acquire what you search for. You are able to engage in risky ventures if you believe they will be profitable enough. This tendency may not do you well, as you can misjudge your abilities or the benefits of these endeavours; try to curb a desire to gamble as it can be your undoing.
Prone to exaggeration, you may express an ability to achieve more than is possible in actuality, causing you to fall short on the promises you have made. This happens due to your own misjudgement of what you can bring to fruition. As much as you are able to achieve, you will never be content with what you have done and strive to out-do yourself, convinced that you need to supplement your aim further. Instead, try looking inwardly for what is missing.
Rather than rushing around, take the time to create a plan and it will help you avoid accidents. Thinking ahead will also allow you time to pay attention to the way other people are feeling or the efforts they have made, as you can be blind to this and unintentionally hurt them. You are very competitive though you also likely to lose interest in whatever you have won once you have it in hand; you must understand that everything cannot always be a contest. If you are able to conduct your dealings in a more harmonious manner, you will find people much more responsive to you.
You possess a great deal of energy and have the skill required to succeed in athletics if only you can discipline yourself enough to make use of these talents. Your outlook is positive in general and this helps you succeed. Be careful not to spread yourself too thin due to indulging in extravagances; you must learn self-restraint. You may encounter problems legally if you are not cautious. When conducting business with people, find equilibrium between excitement and aggressive behaviour. Do not rush your projects; rather take time to make sure your work is done well instead of quickly. Your tendency to rush your work is often due to the restless tension you feel internally that insists you never stay in any situation for long.
Your emotions may be extremely sensitive and you are prone to becoming engrossed in dreamy romantic fantasies. This illusion can sometimes affect your progress in real life, as you may avoid your less fanciful, everyday obligations in order to stay in your daydream. Be mindful that others do not abuse your kindness, as you can be naïve in your readiness to help someone who seems to be down on their luck; do not let people manipulate your warm nature. It is also possible that you go to the other end of things and play the victim yourself, feeding on the pity of others just to be noticed, or you may use dishonest tactics on others, often times on those in your family. There is likelihood that in one way or another you encounter trouble deciphering what is true and what is false, as you can twist reality into fascinating delusions. It is paramount to develop your more practical side, learning when to restrain yourself from your own wishful thinking.
There is a tendency towards negative consequences as a result of a scam; therefore it would be best to avoid becoming involved in arrangements in which you are promised wealth for little investment. Thinking positively is good, though you must also keep your feet on the ground and your head out of the clouds. Nothing worth having in life is without hard work and sacrifice; there is always a price to pay. Develop tolerance towards others and their foibles rather than expecting people to adhere to your idealistic standards. You will find yourself becoming disenchanted with others, and life in general, when those you had high hopes for cannot meet your expectations. Involvement in mystical endeavours can have a harmful influence on you; it would be best if you avoid these. Substance abuse may also become a problem for you and should be kept an eye on.
You are highly responsive, both physically and mentally, to the environment that you find yourself in. Naturally you are full of energy and feel a need to be always active. Quickly disinterested, you require a good deal of mental stimulation to keep your mind busy, lending to your preference towards being a part of many endeavours all at once. You are self-sufficient, unique, inventive, and a revolutionary thinker who is always open to new ideas. In fact, finding fresh ways of doing things or progressive philosophies are a valuable part of life for you and you strive to inspire others to engage in these with you. Your gut intuition is unusually strong and accurate. However, you require complete freedom to be able to use this intuition in whatever way feels right to you, reacting to situations without being hindered by other obligations. Careers that entail the same, monotonous work day in and day out are not for you and you would do best with work that uses your superb ability to adapt to changing circumstances and allows you some room for creativity. You would never abide by others demanding that you do something and telling you in what way you must execute your task. It is important to you to discover things for yourself, in your own time. Your thinking does not follow the typical step-by-step process that most others adhere to. Instead, your thinking is more abstract and conclusions tend to just find their way into your mind seemingly from thin air, though this is just your intuition working its magic and providing you with unparalleled insight. Scientific and technological subject appeal to you and you are usually one of the first to try out new gadgets or concepts. Astrological topics and anything related to supernatural phenomena will also hold your attention. You are an articulate communicator, in both the written and spoken word, which readily exchanges fresh and unconventional information with other people.
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.
You have faith in who you are and what you are doing. Confident and driven, you have a tremendous amount of self-discipline and will do whatever it takes to succeed. You are aware of what it is that you wish to accomplish and the best way to go about it. Often the one leading a group, others rely on you to pave the path. You are opinionated and direct in communicating your viewpoints, always ready to fight for the things you value. When you see a way to improve something, you work hard towards reconstruction. You have the will-power, the perseverance, and the dedication to achieve whatever you set your mind to. At times, you may become so focused on your work that you continue forward even when you are completely exhausted; tunnel-vision is likely when you have taken on a project. This tendency is detrimental to your physical health and you must find a way to pace yourself and make time for relaxation. You have a strong character though you keep this low-key as you choose to keep out of the limelight. Preferring to be in the decision maker, you are often the one taking the lead in social situations and dislike anyone else trying to govern your life. However, it would do you well to develop tolerance for the way others do things and learn to be part of the team rather than acting director.
Mystery appeals to you and you enjoy delving into the depths to discover all things hidden. You insist on knowing the ins and outs of whatever situation you find yourself in, always asking why. There is a preoccupation around death as well, which is lifes ultimate mystery. If you channel your energies correctly, you may have an ability to heal others. Investigation comes naturally to you and you access individuals and circumstances effectively and correctly; not much gets passed your keen observation. Shallow interactions are of no interest to you and you prefer deeper, more meaningful ways to use your time. Verbal conflict and confrontation are not enjoyable to you though you will engage in them when you feel they are required. You are well able to keep yourself from projecting angry feelings outwardly, though when you happen to allow them to seep out, your emotions will burst forward intensely and others may need to stay out of your way until you cool down.
This placement can be difficult due to a tendency towards escapism from daily life and the responsibility that comes with it. Substance abuse may also be prevalent and must be watched for or it can destroy you. The mundane ins and outs of the daily routine bore you and you crave a way to be a part of a fantastical enterprise, where you can couple idealism with your imaginative mind. If you are not able to find an outlet for this, you will be unable to discipline yourself to perform the duties that you are responsible for. Others depend on you yet you often disappoint them. This causes people to view you negatively and disassociate themselves from you in the future. It might prove challenging for you to decipher what is real from what is not; living half-way in a dream-like state is typical for you. It is imperative that you find a way to keep your feet planted firmly on the ground or you will sink. Perhaps you do not feel at home here in the physical realm and are more comfortable in the spiritual one, but you are here now and must do your best to gain wisdom from the situations you encounter. All of us exist in this world for that very reason and you are no exception. Instead of being lost in the fantasy, pay attention and do what you need to.
If you are able to focus and discipline yourself, you just might be able to achieve the fantasy you so strive for. A pyramid was not built in a day, and neither is the kind of life that you dream of. Artistic and creative ventures will allow you to express the pent up feelings you harbour deep down from all of the responsibilities that drag you down in daily life. Your imaginative abilities can create something truly epic, if only you can keep yourself centred in reality and restrain yourself enough to work practically until your vision is realised.
Selfish endeavours are not appealing to you and you would rather devote your time to something that will be beneficial on a grand scale; this will give you a sense of purpose. Climbing the social or corporate ladder may not be for you as you do not possess the qualities competitive, confrontational qualities that often drive others to the top. There is also a habit of deeming yourself either far more capable than you are, or undervaluing yourself. Deceit and delusion are themes in your life, whether they come from other people, or from your own insecurities. People may try to take advantage of your helpful and caring nature, so be mindful that you do not fall prey to every John that tells you a sad tale. Keep in mind that although it would be amazing if you could protect the world from evil all on your own, it is highly unlikely; you can, however, look out for yourself, which will take a lot of effort as it is.
You tend to become overly dependent in your romantic involvements or your partner may be overly dependent on you, and there is a likelihood of either sacrificing too much of yourself to somehow save them or to go the other extreme and act as though they are victimising you. However, it is imperative that you comprehend that when a partnership is not equal, it is not a partnership at all and will not succeed in the end.
This placement can intensify abrasive, sensory, rash, irritable, demanding, and indulgent traits as well as verbal and physical dramaticism. You often follow whichever path your desires steer you towards. Spirituality for you may either go towards being very devoted to your religion, or the exact opposite route, Atheism. However, you seem to embody a bit of a chaotic nature and must learn self-restraint.
You are gifted but are not confident in your capabilities and question whether you are worthy. Your insecurities are masking reality and you need to start believing in yourself. Your lesson is to overcome whatever is keeping you from developing the self-confidence you need to succeed in the areas that you are most talented. Try not to let failing at something deter you from trying again; everyone makes mistakes and this does not make you any less worthy or capable. Keep Trying. When you are feeling insecure, you will start blaming others for your mistakes until you believe the lies yourself. However, what is true never stays hidden for long and in the end when it comes out, you will experience depression; best to be upfront. You should look at each failed attempt as a way to learn and grow, to become stronger and more capable in the future. Your disappointments will aid you in developing self-discipline and a higher spirituality, as will displaying selfless acts of kindness towards others.
Use caution with others as they may not be the person they project themselves as. It is possible that hidden adversaries from a previous life will turn up in this one to administer the karma you deserve. Though you may be tempted, try to keep from participating in unwholesome mystical practices, calling on dark spirits, and similar endeavours. Deep down you feel a strong pull towards being completely genuine and truthful towards other people and your own self.
There are many different possibilities with this aspect and you may either provoke hostility in others due to selfishly putting your needs above the needs of others or create tension within yourself by desiring harmony with others while repressing your own needs. Your relationships may be challenging due to you going in full force one minute then holding back the next, or not being able to differentiate between love and lust, or possibly that you find yourself in partnerships where you and your partner both love and loathe each other. You may over-indulge in your sexuality instead of using your energy for creating something worthwhile. It is also possible that you will become enamoured with anyone that gives you the smallest amount of warmth.
Others are strongly drawn to your inner intensity and your powerful sexuality makes it virtually impossible for you to adhere to strictly non-physical friendships with the opposite sex. You create trouble in your relationships because you tend to care more for what you need than what your partner needs, as well as lacking patience when having to wait for something that you want. You are fickle in your feelings and when your partner is interested, you tend to withdraw but when you notice your partner acting disinterested, it only spurs you forward. You feel unable to hold back your frustrations with your partner and will often vent them either physically or verbally, possibly in a rather hostile manner. Once you have aired out these tensions, you will feel yourself in love once again. And while you have already forgotten anything had happened, your partner is left confused as to what occurred. At this point you are ready to go forward with them but now they are holding back and you are unsure as to the reason. You might feel disappointed in your relationships as you will be unable to comprehend what is wrong, often blaming the other person for their issues. When you are single, you wish to be in a relationship and when you are in a relationship, you wish to be single. It is difficult for you to handle your own emotions as they are unstable. Decisions do not come easily to you because of these erratic emotional patterns, causing you to be unsure of what you even believe. Try to control your quick temper by compromising with others instead. It might also be beneficial for you to invest in a gym membership so that you may work off whatever tensions are eating you up rather than taking them out on the people you most care for. In addition, your tendency to loathe the people you love needs to be transformed if you are to find happiness in your partnerships.
You possess a talent for leadership in aiding others to improve their situation, whether this be their living situation or their spiritual one. You are highly moral by nature and this draws people to you. Coordinating others comes easily to you as does strategy. It is likely that you will transform any group that you lead. Your past life bestowed you with acceptance towards others beliefs and values, you are humble in your approach. You quickly decipher what is morally correct and what is not, lending to an ability to thoroughly comprehend when a transformation is in order. You find pleasure assisting in the task of attaining important aspirations, yours or someone elses. Insightful and giving, you have a gift for seeing to the truth of the matter and read people and circumstances accurately and swiftly. You are also particularly empathetic towards others and the troubles they encounter.
You are prone to idealism and romanticism, and often fall in love with an idea of a person rather than an actual person. There is a tendency towards thinking too fondly of another, expecting them to be your perfect soulmate and then feeling devastated when the object of your affections inevitably falls short. It would be most beneficial for you to keep your eyes fully open and your head out of the clouds, before venturing too far in.
In addition, this placement may cause you to create a partner in your mind that is unrealistic and then chasing this daydream your entire life, not realising that such a person could never exist. Ideals can be good if they can serve as a rough draft rather than the main plan.
You may need to be careful not to become wrapped up in a clingy, unhealthy sort of partnership where your independence suffers. It is possible that you or your significant other will position themselves in the relationship to be a hero that you or they must depend on, or perhaps some sort of victim. Partnerships must be on equal footing if they are to be healthy, otherwise a destructive pattern can emerge where one person always takes and the other gives or in which you lose you who are in order to continue the relationship.
You have delicate sensibilities and strive to create an aesthetically pleasing environment. You require harmonious, beautiful surroundings and probably feel yourself drawn to art in some form or creative pursuits. It is likely that you are fond of the creative type of person. You have an allure about you that others are intrinsically attracted to. Sensuality and intuition play a large role for you and you often seek out uncommon people, subjects, or situations. You lack confidence in your romantic endeavours. Try to keep in mind that all of us are flawed in one way or another, all you can do is follow the path before you and try your best.
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.
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 have trouble being compassionate towards others as you are rather self-concerned, paying more attention to what is happening in your life than in the lives of others. You may feel at odds internally, as what you believe you want and need are not necessarily the same things you require deep down; you are torn in opposing ways. Your indecision is largely due to this inner battle. Constantly weighing this course versus another, you find yourself anxious and frustrated, never able to make a decision either way. You want to do what is right, though you are uncertain what that is. You are conflicted between your own individuality and forming close bonds with others. The confusing signals that you convey cause people to be unsure about how to react to you or what it is that you desire, creating instability in your partnerships. You must find your centre and equilibrium between your inner feelings and the way you act. Recognise that your moods are easily changeable and try to find ways to counter this. During times when you have a greater amount of energy, use this period to be productive. During points where you feel run down, work more steadily and relax a bit. One moment you are the voice of reason and the next you are nursing your delicate feelings. You may be blind to other peoples emotions and necessities and therefore can be unresponsive.
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.
Virgos have a strong need to keep their lives orderly, pure, and flawless. They tend to be quiet, efficient, diligent, dutiful, trustworthy, selective, prompt, exacting, thoughtful, and shy with a great talent for analysing all they come across (learn about compatibility with Virgo here). Virgos are reasonable and grounded, superb workers with high attention to detail. However they can also be difficult, cold, overly particular, negative, self-focused, and cynical, with a darker sense of humour and may be prone to melancholic mood swings. Virgos are often at their best when they are involving themselves in work that allows them to use their analytical abilities in the field of technology, caretaking, or any work with detailed tasks. They do not mind others taking the leading roles, as they are more concerned with providing quality service to people.
Virgos have an active mind, always questioning and searching for answers to their many curiosities. They enjoy problem solving, studying peoples behaviour, and examining their environment carefully. Virgos are adept at remembering even the things others may find insignificant. They prefer to keep active either physically or mentally, as they require new stimulation; lack of interesting new data and experiences can cause tension for a Virgo and they are known for being rather anxious.
When a Virgo makes a commitment, they keep it; their word is their bond. They are excellent administrative coordinators and proficient in maintaining an orderly environment. Virgoans have an innate fondness for organisation and tranquillity. They are hard on themselves to keep things just right and this tendency extends to others as well. If they are unable to find this perfection, a Virgo will become irritable and pick people apart for lacking whatever quality they believe the person should possess.
Virgos may be fretful as they are often looking for the ideal and trying to improve things. Even when something has been completed, they will think back on how it could have been made better. Unfortunately, this sort of worrying can impact their physical state, sometimes affecting their digestive track; keeping themselves optimistic will have a positive effect on their health. They can be prone to creating problems where there are none, especially with their health. However, most of the time their health is just fine as they tend to be on the lookout for ways to improve it. It is important for a Virgo to have time during the day to reflect and relax from all of their mental activity, regardless their age, and they do tend to age well.
A Virgo may find it challenging to convey their innermost feelings to another. Though they can be independent creatures, they enjoy having someone to care for and someone to show small, thoughtful acts of kindness to.
It would be best said that you think your emotions, rather than feel them and you will verbalise these emotions as it helps you to better understand them. However, due to your excellent ability to intellectualise your own emotions, you can fall short when trying to empathise with other peoples feelings as you find it difficult to comprehend that others are unable to remove themselves and look at their reactions objectively. It is imperative to you that you are able to vocalise and verbally sort through your various emotional states. More than anything, you crave constant communication and sharing of ideas. You may at times come across as insincere as you tend to steer clear of deeply emotional interactions. Committing yourself to an idea or a person fills you with dread. A large amount of mental activity is crucial to your happiness and you feel most bonded to those that eagerly communicate their interests and exchange ideas with you. It would be fair to say that you are somewhat of a sapiosexual; intelligence and mental stimulation attract you more than physical attributes. Your mind is flexible and diverse, as well as reactive and you tend to soak up information. You are charismatic, quick-witted, and loving, though you must be mindful of allowing too much stress to affect your system, as this will bring about an anxious energy that creates trouble for you. You find it difficult to keep from communicating your thoughts at all times and you will prefer keeping conversations peaceful as unnecessary confrontations are not your style. In fact, there is a likelihood of saying the things you believe others want to hear instead of what is actually true. Try to discipline yourself mentally otherwise you may find yourself blowing with the wind, unable to make your mind up, never planting your feet on the ground.
You are most gifted in being able to comprehend every angle of a situation and come to a diplomatic resolution to the problem. You are rational, harmonious, just, perceptive, and socially adept. You work well in a team environment. You are able to stay cool and focused on the issue at hand and remain impartial; this makes you well-suited to a career in mediation, politics, or consulting. You strive to keep justice in a harmonious fashion, regardless the circumstances. Highly artistic, you are able to work in creative endeavours or projects that deal with people of different cultures. Your mind is logical and balanced, and you easily convince others of your viewpoints. You are adaptable and prefer to hear every aspect of a story. However, this trait can make you indecisive as you too easily comprehend each angle and it can be difficult for you to decipher which story holds the most weight. Comparing and contrasting, analysing continuously while finding interesting ways to explain your discoveries; this is what you are most skilled in.
In romantic affairs you are giving, loving, demonstrative, trustworthy, passionate, and adventurous. You despise petty behaviour in your romantic interest. What you search for is the knight in shining armour, or the noble lady whom you can admire and cherish, a person that you can look up to and respect, someone to be lost in. It is important to you that attention be lavished upon you and that you are well cared for and valued. Someone charming who knows how to sweet talk, will go a long with you; you desire to feel like you mean the world to your partner. Extravagance sways you positively and your romantic life is often filled with drama and excitement of one kind or another. You want your mate to make an impression. There is a tendency to exaggerate your emotions. You are trustworthy, fun, sympathetic, direct, charismatic, and generally appealing, though sometimes you will fall in love with the idea of love rather than the person. You may be idealistic and hold people to higher standards than they are capable of attaining, and therefore can find yourself nursing a wounded heart. It is more important to evolve your inner self than your physical self; be on the look-out for narcissistic tendencies.
With incredible will-power and ability to focus on a goal completely, when you set your mind to something, you can accomplish anything. You have immense resolve and self-control and it is difficult to deter you when you have decided on a direction. If you are interested in something or have an objective in mind, you can become rather stubborn and are fascinated with the idea to such an extent that you think of little else. However, these directives of yours are usually kept to yourself; you do not like to give away too much in regards to what schemes you may be thinking up. You are intuitive, observant, diligent, dedicated, focused, with a great magnetism and an iron will. No one could ever say that you are shallow, as still waters run deep with you and an animalistic nature dwells inside. It would be beneficial for you to develop self-control regarding your cravings in all forms, for when left unchecked these urgent yearnings can lead to destruction. In romantic endeavours, you must allow your partner freedom and space as you have a tendency towards treating your significant other as though they are an object that only you have rights to; when your possessive nature eventually surfaces, your partner may feel suffocated or frightened by the intensity. You have a knack for understanding the way people work, as well as an ability to accurately interpret how someone may respond to any given circumstance. This can make it easy for you to use subtle tactics to achieve the outcome you desire; be mindful that you do not abuse this gift for your own personal benefit. You can be rather set on the way you want something to manifest, with a powerful internal assertiveness that people may feel but cannot quite vocalise. You have mastered the art of subtlety, both in expression and in perception, and others may have difficulty deciphering your true intentions. You prefer it this way as you do not like to take action overtly, but rather choose to remain hidden until you see the perfect moment to strike. Nonetheless, you are a powerful adversary when challenged. Be mindful of health issues regarding your colon.
You strive to benefit humanity using hands-on, concrete methods and materials. As an appreciation for your efforts, you prefer to be compensated with possessions; just saying the words is not enough for you, you want something tangible. You can be quite giving if you believe sharing will bring about the circumstances you desire. With a tendency towards over-indulgence, you may need to take extra care to curb your cravings. The views you hold are not easily changed and you will usually need large amounts of hard facts before you will be convinced of anything. Disease and physical discomfort are likely to be worries for you. Material assets find their way to you, though you must be cautious about how you use them or they will prove to be troublesome for you. Weight gain may also be a challenge for you due to your appetite for tasty treats. It will be beneficial for you to learn to restrict your indulgence in sensual pleasures.
You often fret about possible difficulties that those you care for may encounter; you will quickly come to their defence if you see any trouble. Your emotions tend to be unstable and you find yourself feeling doubtful and unworthy of being loved due to possible early childhood neglect by your parental figures. They may have been cold or unable to show you emotionally that you were cared for. There is a tendency towards high expectations for your own children and you can be an authoritarian. Be mindful of your moods as you easily plummet into dark places. Subconsciously you may be always worried that others are out to cause you pain and therefore you retreat from becoming too attached to people. You are considerate though may not always be sympathetic towards others. This is often due to the fact that you are so scared of what someone else might do to you that you are blind to the pain others are experiencing. This placement unfortunately causes problems with the digestive tract and you may wish to avoid drinking fluids while eating. Also it would be wise to keep an eye on the foods you choose and how much of them you ingest. Owning real estate may be something that helps you to feel safe and secure.
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 feel an urge to be of service to humanity. This may be particularly challenging for you, as you prefer to retreat and hope that others will somehow come to save you from yourself. There is karma from a previous life that forces you to look closely at yourself and the destructive tendencies you carry. You intuitively sense that everything in the universe is tied together. It is likely that you will need to learn to believe in yourself, as your confidence is often low. People with health issues, whether this be physical or mental, tend to draw you in as you seem to resonate with them somehow. You may have premonitions or be interested in new age topics or the metaphysical realm. There is a possibility that you will act as a victim, ready for sacrificing yourself at any moment.
Prone to anxiety and doubting yourself, you often look to others assets and resources to provide you with a sense of safety. Try to be mindful of your tendency to become envious or possessive. There is an opportunity to experience premonitions due your strong intuition and heightened emotional energy. Your partnerships, whether they be romantic or business, are likely to provide monetary gain. Death or sexuality may be an obsession for you. It is probable that you will choose a career that involves psychology, analysis, gathering of information, detective work, the unknown, or regeneration of some sort. You may also be heavily reliant on others assets in your work.
Born with a natural thirst for knowledge, you are interested to know a little bit about everything. You are inquisitive and clever, having a talent for witty, eloquent communication in all forms and always enthusiastic to converse about your array of varied interests with others. A high-strung personality may help keep you slim, but you must watch out for nervous disorders as your nervous system is highly sensitive. Luckily, you are also very adaptable which may help reduce your anxiety.
Good-natured and easy going, you find popularity bestowed upon you in both your professional life as well as your personal life; people are generally attracted to your pleasant personality. You have a welcoming and affectionate way of interacting with the world, tending to promote positive energy. You inspire others to want to help you, though you must be mindful not to take advantage of this and become idle when you should be putting in your fair share of the work. You are likely talented with your voice somehow, and may use this talent for singing, speaking in public, or perhaps being involved in a career where the quality of your voice is important. This placement suggests a favourable financial situation for you.
You encompass a natural exuberance of physical energy. This vitality can sometimes become so intense that you engage in rash, reckless behaviour when you should be exercising caution. Having such a strong mars placement bestows you with confidence and an assertive attitude towards life. You are rather self-sufficient with a good aptitude for organizing, though you can have trouble with patience at times. Take care to watch for accidents, especially around the head region as you are particularly prone to facial wounds and high fevers.
Marriage or romantic partnerships are likely to bring you prosperity or help you in some way. You seek a partner who will open your mind to possibilities and inspire personal growth. They may be rather philosophical and broaden your knowledge in this subject, or possibly in religion or spiritual matters. It is likely that you have an inherent need to expand your mind or become a more moral, conscientious individual and you are drawn to a partner that will help you on your journey to do so.
The person you choose is likely to be successful professionally. If Jupiter is negatively aspected in your chart, this partner may not be morally sound and can be careless, selfish, unmotivated, narrow-minded, excessive, and deceitful.
You have a talent for inspiring others to be giving and helpful to you, though in order to succeed in your partnerships, you must curb any inclinations towards dishonestly prideful behaviour and over-indulgence.
You have a good head for business, are largely self-sufficient, and diligent in creating structure. It is likely that you will find yourself rising steadily to the top rather than a quick jump to success; be patient as your persistence and determination will pay off. Do not try to shrug off your duties as this will lead to disappointments. For you, what you put in is what you what you gain. Your tendency to take advantage of others on your quest for power will ruin your achievements; try to somewhat curb your strong desire to stand at the top of the mountain. Do not discard others, as you may need to rely on them in the future. Your childhood may have been repressed or challenging due to having strict, controlling parents; the tension with one or both of your parental guardians may continue into your adult life.
The situation in your home life tends to be unstable and unpredictable, often with random periods of tension. You may come from an alternative background or there may be buried secrets in your familys past. You are likely to change residences often due to an inner tension of staying in the same place for too long; frequent changes in your life in general are also common. There is also a tendency for there to be an unusual way of relating to your parental figures that can have a large effect on your emotional well-being, for better or worse. You do not think much about the opinions of others and may feel happiest without having an obligation to either one residence or community. As you age, you may become interested in new age topics such as the metaphysical realm or astrology.
Your career does not tend to follow the usual path; instead you will encounter odd shifts and circumstances revolving your journey towards success. Be careful to stay practical in your endeavours as you are easily swayed into an unrealistic mind-set, daydreaming with rose-coloured glasses on, instead of seeing things for what they truly are. Creativity in one form or another is likely to be part of your profession and you may find yourself involved with art, photography, pharmaceuticals, entertainment, advertising, humanitarian or charitable efforts, or metaphysics. Publicly, your reputation may swing from one end to another, often without a foreseeable cause. It is possible that you felt unwanted or excluded by either of your parents.
Your intuition is very strong, often psychic. You may even feel as though you visit other realms while you are sleeping. Having a strong interest in how and why things work the way they do, you are likely to be drawn to religious studies and philosophical topics. Very independent in your own beliefs, you may need to be careful not to brush off the beliefs of others as this would be unfavourable to you in the long run. Do not become obsessed with your own ideas but rather try to accept other points of view. You have an intense drive to get to the truth, desiring a deep understanding of everything you come across. You may go through a type of rebirth or regeneration through your dreams, spiritual or philosophical experiences, or travels. You may study too hard and cause yourself mental stress; try to pace yourself. In addition, be open-minded to listening to others rather than insisting that you are correct.
