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.
Your positive attitude and jovial personality attract others and aids you in your success. A confidant demeanour draws good fortune to you. You strive to grow in wisdom, using philosophical interest to guide you. This placement bestows protection, though it may not come until right in the nick of time. You are energetic, excitable, sociable, cheerful, and lucky. You are likely to acquire monetary comforts with this placement. You dream big, though do not need to fight hard to make your dreams a reality. You tend to be giving, warm, dependable, genuine, truthful, and full of idealism. Your moral values are particularly strong and you believe in being fair and acting honourably. Petty displays are not abided by and you would never disgrace yourself enough to reach that kind of low. You attempt to develop self-discipline and awareness through spiritual means, particularly religion or philosophical studies. Past life karma is strong for you and favours you in many ways due to your caring, generous deeds towards others in a previous life.
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.
You find it difficult to connection intimately. Painful experiences from your past cause you to keep your romantic feelings reserved as you worry that the past may repeat itself. Instead of going through the pain again, you have decided to withhold any sort of vulnerability. Solid, impenetrable, and alone. Due to the situations you have been through, others may see you as emotionless, not caring one way or another. You must foster warmth and find a way to let others in despite what may occur. Keep in mind that you will be unable to have a deeply fulfilling emotional connection with someone if you keep your feelings locked away; love needs to be allowed to flow both ways for it to be real. This placement challenges you to love without expectations. Allow yourself to feel fully, do not hold yourself back, and you will have learned the ultimate lesson.
Opening up to others may happen slowly for you, as you may have trouble trusting people. You have put up very sturdy walls that may not be so easily knocked down. Deep down you worry that perhaps you are not worth loving, that just as yourself you fall short somehow. However, these worries are just your imagination teaming up with insecurity; you are just as worthy of being loved as anyone else. You must alter the way you go about matters concerning love. Others try to love you but often you close off to them, forcing them to abandon their efforts. Allow real love a chance and let people in. Even if you do get hurt, brush it off and try again; it only has to work ONCE.
In the end, the lesson here is for you to develop self-love and appreciation, and to convey the warmth you feel inside more overtly. Material possessions will not express how you truly feel, you must do this with sincere feeling. Look inside of yourself more often so that you can decipher the complicated emotions you often deal with internally. When your inner nature is truly recognised, you are able to be faithful and dutiful to the ones you care for. You tend to take your relationships seriously and may even choose partners that are more mature than you. Age tends to play a card in general when it involves romantic relationships, as you are likely to find someone significantly younger as well! Perhaps you can foster forgiveness when you feel that someone has inadvertently done you harm; keep an eye on your sensitivity. Your moments of insecurity will bring forth many issues that have been buried, often for good reason, and your relationships will suffer because of it.
Physical affection is another area in which you find trouble. It would be best for you to learn to share yourself with another. Sharing your material assets does not come easily to you either. However, the more you withhold these things from those you care about, the harder the situation will become for you. When your life is ending you will not have use for the things you own, so you may wish to consider sharing what you have while you still have it. Material possessions do not realistically give you emotional security, and though you may feel that they do, this is not actually the case. What is truly valuable is to give what you have to create happiness for others. One thing can be said for sure, your friendship is strong and true, and others can count on you to be there for them.
Resilience, dedication, perseverance, and working hard allow you to achieve challenging feats. You are able to sync idealistic characteristics with realism. The challenges you encounter allow you to demonstrate your endurance when circumstances get particularly difficult; a great deal of spiritual development is likely to arise due to these difficulties. Different, unconventional, uncommon, and maybe even odd matters will attract your motivations. Rather unique individuals are thrust into your world in order to allow you opportunities to learn and expand your consciousness. You are capable of finding equilibrium between your need for independence and your obligations, enabling you to achieve incredible acts. You are detail-oriented and have a knack for organising which contribute to your success and allow you to aid others. There is an abundance of internal tension that may need to be minded as this can have a negative effect on your physical health; find a way to unwind and reduce your stress levels.
You are artistically inventive, unique, open-minded, emotionally expressive, and tend to speak your thoughts without reserve. Others are drawn to your charming personality and sexual magnetism. Doing the same thing day in and day out is not for you, instead you are always ready for the next exciting adventure to begin and are enthused when someone is able to surprise you! Self-sufficient, you require much room to breathe in any partnership. Your views on relationships are anything but conventional, and you are open to alternative arrangements. For friendship, you usually seek out those that are different in some way; eccentricity only adds to the appeal. People walk in and out of your life spontaneously and are usually presented to you as a way to test your belief system and willingness to adapt. These people, as well as your friends, come around to satisfy inner necessities and will leave when they are of no more use. You have a fantastic way of looking outside the box and arriving at genius ways to solve challenges. Most of the time, whatever happens in your life is seemingly random and unexpected. You are unable to plan for these things, the only thing you can do is allow them to happen and act upon the present situation. This is especially the case in regards to your romantic endeavours. There will always seem to be something exhilarating, uncommon, and random occurring in your life that will aid you in gaining wisdom and growing spiritually.
You are rather intuitive, possibly emotionally fragile, and may run into problems if you engage in the occult or mysticism in destructive ways. Because you are sensitive to your environment, you will need to be mindful towards a tendency to be easily affected by what others say, think, or do. It is also possibly that you may be able to pull out ideas from thin air and find a way to better yourself through them, whether this be an improvement on your will-power, your mentality, or your emotional well-being. Sometimes you are so set on being unlike the rest that you forget what the real truth is, try to stay aware of the actual situation. There is a tendency towards escaping through substance abuse, though this will not help you on your journey. Instead, you will discover who you are through aiding others. Use your intuition to guide you to where you are supposed to be. Creative endeavours will help you to unload any excess emotions.
You have a talent for creating beautiful forms and designs, as your spatial ability is superb in regards to what would be considered aesthetically pleasing to yourself and others. You excel in all different types of art and design and would do well choosing a career in these fields. Another option for you would be in creative writing; you are able to use words to paint a picture. Your vocals are likely to be quite appealing to others, almost as if you can hypnotise others simply by speaking or singing to them. Diplomacy comes naturally to you and you are able to articulate yourself in a peaceful manner even in the most trying of circumstances. If you are unable to create art, you may do well in selling it instead. You instinctively pick out what goes well together materialistically or creatively. People find your charming, polite, and often humorous demeanour easy to get along with and this likeability will greatly aid you in any endeavour you are involved with that requires you to work with others. There is a tendency towards thinking your feelings rather than feeling them, and this rationalisation makes it difficult for you to openly convey your emotions to others. Whether or not you work in the creative field, you will certainly value art and creativity in general. It is in your nature to resolve disagreements in a harmonious fashion and soothe any emotional upsets.
You feel a pull towards intensely emotional situations with others of the opposite sex. This pull is so strong that you feel as if it is almost uncontrollable. The craving you feel for intense experiences makes it difficult for you to reject these situations. You require a great deal of love and may over-indulge in your sexuality or become obsessed or difficult to satisfy. There is a double standard in your relationships as you are extremely envious and try to possess those you are interested in, while expecting that they give you freedom to do as you please. This can lead to inequality in your partnerships. Your attempts to control your partner will often lead them to pull away from you. A major challenge for you in your partnerships is that you insist on being the one in control of the relationship but always seem to be drawn to those who prefer to take the same role, leading to both of you constantly struggling for dominance. You would rather experience trouble if it means that you will also experience intense emotions, than to have a conflict-free, steady partnership that never reaches the high frequency you desire. You need to feel something powerful in order to feel as though you are truly living.
Your lesson is to take a good hard look at your beliefs and alter them accordingly. Your partnerships give you an opportunity to confront deep issues inside yourself and grow in wisdom. It is for this reason that you are drawn to those that are a challenge for you. The only way for you to grow is for you to experience the same behaviour you exhibited to others in a past life, back towards yourself in this one. You have an opportunity to remedy your past karma if you are able to react in kindness rather than vengeance. Learn to let things go. When you have cleansed your past karma and grown in wisdom, you will notice that you will no longer be attracting people who will create havoc for you. This placement denotes that you are able to move forward from previous malicious behaviours.
In regards to your health, you are likely to be susceptible to kidney trouble or issues with removing toxic material from your system. If the system is unable to remove toxic material, you may find yourself dealing with lung complications or trouble with the skin. Finding a way to let go of negative emotions that are toxic to your spiritually, and foster kindness and forgiveness towards others, can help your physical health.
If you are able to put other peoples needs above your own, you can create healing through the powerful emotions you possess.
You are able to focus yourself exceptionally well and are capable of great self-control. Your mind can attain amazing feats due to these talents and your organisational abilities also aid in providing structure for your plans. It may take you longer than it would take others to think through a situation but once you do, you understand it completely and deeply. You prefer to take a more sombre attitude in life, working hard instead of playing around light-heartedly with others. Mentally you are detail-oriented and do not mind completing tasks that are too dull and monotonous for others. You do not beat around the bush when it comes to business and are a clear, direct communicator that portrays themselves as reasonable and practical; you would make a fine administrator. Others know they can depend on you to come through on your promises as doing things the right way is important to you. You do best focusing on one area and specialising in it, versus trying to learn a little bit about many fields. Solitary learning is likely more effective for you than traditional methods, as you require time to fully absorb and think through the information. You may be good at critical thinking due to your excellent ability to find loop-holes in peoples reasoning. Careers that require a systematic way of thinking are right up your alley. Mentally you are disciplined, reasonable, dutiful, exacting, and precise. Physically you are healthy and heal quickly from any ailment you encounter.
The pathway towards achieving your goals may be obstructed and there is also issue with asserting power. It seems that something always stands in the way of what you are trying to accomplish. It would be wise to evaluate the reasoning behind your actions. Are these actions done for selfish reasons alone, or do they have a benefit for humanity as a whole? Competing with others allows you to learn how to better collaborate with people. Much wisdom can be attained with this placement, however it is imperative that you act selflessly.
Karma from a past life insists that you listen to the opposing views of others openly in this life, as you had acted in a controlling, commanding manner previously. If you insist on holding to your own opinions rigidly, your conditions will only worsen. Great power comes with great responsibilitythis responsibility is to ensure others well-being, not only your own. Those who need to learn this are often placed in powerful roles so that they may do so. Be humble, keep striving, and develop your patience.
You can be very innovative though you must develop a way to adapt. You prefer things to stay the same, with the same routine, and this desire prompts you to attempt controlling others in some way. This placement may create a great deal of tension for you emotionally, though you can use these challenges to better understand the meaning of life.
You are a self-sufficient rebel, progressive and unconventional, with a strong will-power and an energy that tends towards the unexpected. You can also exhibit brash, unpredictable behaviour. You demand freedom to do your own thing at all costs and will not abide by others trying to control your life in any way. Your anger comes on suddenly, seemingly from nowhere. There is a great deal of vitality in this placement and if you channel your energies in a constructive fashion, you can achieve many great feats. However, this energy can also destroy you if not channelled positively. Patience has never been easy for you and you insist on having whatever you desire whenever you want it. You behave hastily, acting on impulse, though making decisions is not a problem for you. It is difficult for you to do anything part-way, you either put everything you have into what you are doing, or you dont bother to do it. Rules and regulations are not for you, and following a strict routine equates to a slow torture for you. There is susceptibility towards being involved in accidents of all sorts due to your impatience, as you are often rushing around without caution. Often restless, you prefer to be doing something exciting and challenging and do not tend to stay in the same situation for long periods of time, changing residency, jobs, or even relationships often. You may find yourself in trouble with those in charge, as you dislike the orders coming from anyone but you. Your communication is clear and direct, and you tell people, in no uncertain terms, exactly what is on your mind. Formal structure of conversation is not something you think of and you can be rather tactless and blunt when communicating with others. If you can channel your energies correctly, you are able to create beneficial transformations in any endeavour you have decided to focus on. Internally, you are often struggling with an anxious sort of tension that you find difficult to release and relaxation is a challenge for you. You tend to be on edge, inventive, and bold; striving to experience everything at least one time. You have a quick mind and an original imagination, as well as a skill for manual projects. The more a project smells of danger, the more likely you are to be interested.
This placement makes you driven, truthful, intuitive, and brave. Though you must be willing to hear what others have to say and not be rebellious every time you are asked to do something. If you are able to achieve this, it will aid you in developing self-restraint which is important to curb the chaos you often find yourself in. You also enjoy shocking others just for the sake of getting a reaction from them and this can be detrimental to your success.
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 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.
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.
Very affectionate, you enjoy engaging in romance and are a sensitive, appreciative pursuer. Others are drawn to you even if you are not stereotypically good-looking, though you often are. Your personality is vibrant and you are easy to be with, gaining you much popularity. You keep your emotions fairly steady and low-key, which can be very attractive to the opposite sex. There is a part of you that likes to play match-maker and you could easily put others together in a fantastic way, creating harmonious pairings that last.
You are driven by an amorous nature with a fondness for all things beautiful, yearning to channel your passion into creativity of any form. This placement denotes a charismatic magnetism that others respond to. Being alone for too long does not do you well and you prefer to be socially active, happily engaging with other people. You have a strong craving to express yourself affectionately and for this warmth to be reciprocated. Your vitality is apparent to others and people find you alluring. Romantic relationships are likely to flourish as you are aware of what you desire in a mate and are able to convey these feelings clearly. You do not hide your intentions, but rather take a direct, honest approach in these matters. However, you will avoid conflict if you can do so as you dislike disharmony. You invest much effort to understanding your feelings.
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.
You are self-sufficient, opinionated, giving, eager, open-minded, positive, and enthused with an idealism that draws social contacts to you. You can be rather out-going, enjoying comradeship and traveling to distant lands inspires you. Independent and spontaneous with a child-like enthusiasm for adventure, you are always prepared to dive right in to something fun. Regardless of past trials and tribulations, you never stay down very long and will quickly move passed whatever challenges you face, keeping your optimistic attitude that everything will turn out alright. Truth be told, other peoples dilemmas and hurt feelings make you feel uneasy and are difficult for you to handle. Your attempts at trying to make others feel better often make them feel as though you have made light of their concerns or dismissed them altogether due to your extreme optimism. Your platonic relationships may be more important to you than your romantic ones; for you cannot be content in a relationship that does not incorporate a strong friendship. Your mate must be able to help you grow as a person and support your quest towards achieving your goals and desires. It is imperative that you are given a large amount of emotional space. Unfortunately, when you are afflicted you can be self-righteous, narrow-minded, bigoted, biased, self-important, and smug in addition to taking too many unnecessary risks.
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.
Deeply passionate, possessive love is one of your greatest yearnings. The connections you acquire tend to be full of intensity and emotional highs. However, there may be a tendency towards envy and trying to control the loved the one. The more involved you are, the more possessive you will become; be mindful that you do not destroy the very thing you so wish to keep. Love for you is an all-encompassing state and you will hold onto whoever elicits this response in you, come hell or high water. You expect your partners to live up to your high expectations of them. You may find yourself wary of the friendships your partner cultivates, believing that outsiders are not to be trusted. With you it is either all or nothing and if your partner ever deceives you, you can become ice cold, loathing them with matching intensity of the love that once was. When crossed, you do not give second chances. You are drawn to those who are a bit mysterious as you enjoy finding hidden caverns of depth. Others are magnetically attracted to your subtle allure and although there is much going on emotionally for you beneath the surface, you are not always comfortable expressing your feelings outright. You may prefer to channel some of your emotional intensity into spiritual pursuits. Developing self-discipline will go a long way for you. There is a past-life karma that insists you conquer matters regarding sex and transformation or rebirth. Venus in Scorpio heightens your artistic abilities and brings focus to hidden affairs, lustful fascinations, obsessions, and unwholesome pacts and treaties.
Conflicts are difficult for you to handle and you may even sweep things under the rug just to keep the atmosphere harmonious. You feel uneasy with overt confrontation or perceived hostility. You do not typically strive to climb the corporate ladder as the competition deters you. It is more valuable to you to be content internally. You may feel lost when you are thrust into circumstances that require assertive behaviour. However, you will fight to the death, if need be, to protect those closest to you. You become very defensive of the ones you love if you feel they are being mistreated somehow. Though naturally you would hide from conflict, you readily come to the aid of those you care for and can muster up a great deal of protective energy if the situation calls for it. Your ambitions are often largely connected to the desires of your family. You would put a lot on the line to secure their happiness. Stressful circumstances unravel you and it would be best if you avoided environments where you needed to contend with others. If you are forced to deal with these sorts of situations, you will become grumpy and ill-tempered, brooding or sulking from the pressure. Your physical stamina is unsteady and directly correlates to the way you are feeling emotionally in the moment. Any sort of negativity will dampen your spirit and it will be physically apparent as you will become rather sluggish. Although you have a tendency to use food as a way to deal with emotional upsets, it would be wise if you abstained from this as it does you more harm than good. You are dedicated, emotional, instinctive, protective, empathetic, sincere, determined, and industrious. It would be best for your health if you were able to find a positive outlet for the large amount of emotional energy that you possess.
You are genuine, loyal, trustworthy, capable, and resourceful with an aptitude for technical or practical tasks. You may find that you encounter reservation, restraint, and a need to venture carefully when putting forth efforts to grow and better yourself. There is an innate need to acquire material assets, though in the end this will not attribute to your joy or contentment. You may be prone to depression or isolating yourself from life and from other people. Independent and disciplined, you prefer being in positions of authority. Wastefulness is not something you can abide by easily. Achieving success will be possible only if you are able to remain honourable during your dealings; karma has a way of punishing you for any dishonourable behaviour.
You have immense self-control and restraint when needed. You are able to understand people and intricate situations with remarkable accuracy and have no trouble manoeuvring any circumstance you find yourself in.

You are diligent and dedicated in your undertakings and are able to wait as long as need be to achieve your most cherished goals. Saturn bestows excellent perception while Mars adds a strong drive, creating an unbeatable force to be reckoned with. However, you may need to be mindful of a tendency towards unyielding, inflexible, vengeful, bitter, callous, or even cruel behaviour. There is also a possibility of becoming power-hungry or preoccupied with money or success. This placement denotes a necessity to reform your inner yearnings and it will be imperative that you allow situations to develop as they may, rather than holding on to a desired outcome, person, or object; surrender and release. Your body is affected by this tendency as well and you may experience health issues that revolve around your bowels, colon, or elimination processes such as your kidneys or gall bladder.

This is a difficult placement in regards to your love relationships as they tend to be emotionally distant and repressive. You may find that you harbour feelings of not being appreciated enough or truly loved.

You find that often you are only interested in pursuing things that are useful somehow; this extends to how you spend your free time. You find it very difficult to express affection and praise to your children and they may view you as oppressive.

However, you may develop trouble with your nervous system and often suffer from feeling as though you are alone.

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.
