There may be deeper issues at work in regards to feeling as though you are somehow not good enough which leads to negative thinking. You are likely to age very well. Anxiety and a nervous tension can cause you to stay slim. Decisive action and certainty may elude you at times. You must learn to aid and serve others as this is your life lesson.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.
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 enthusiastic, spur-of-the-moment, and reactive in both your emotions and your sexuality. You can lose control when your emotions are stimulated, especially in regards to love where you seek out exhilarating situations and can become enamoured rapidly, though just as swiftly fall out of love. Love partnerships start off in the heights of excitement only to conclude spontaneously, shortly after they began. Your likes and interests tend to be made up of the unusual, untraditional, and quirky, and you love to experiment with something new and different. You are particularly adventurous with your emotions. More likely to pay attention to what you are pursuing, you often discard what you have already obtained. Sticking things out long-term is not something you can usually do in your relationships and you are much happier in unconventional situations that do not tie you down, allowing you to roam free. You want to experience as much as possible, with as many people as possible, and a monogamous partnership might be too restrictive for you. This need for independence may cause you to either consciously or subconsciously seek out individuals who are not entirely available to you, as this keeps the situation from becoming too serious; a detached approach is more your style. Secret relationships are also a possibility here.
Your feelings are apt to be unpredictable and volatile. You are emotionally fickle and it is anyones guess what you will be feeling from one moment to the next. These erratic moods frustrate you as you cannot comprehend why they occur. The tension you feel forces you to take your negative emotions out on whatever unfortunate soul is nearby. Much of this tension can be tempered by channelling your energies creatively, as you are talented in the creative fields. If you are able to make use of these emotions to create, you will find them much easier to handle.
Naturally magnetic, others are drawn to your sexual allure and exhilarating personality. You find it difficult to stay in one place or situation for very long and would do well with a career that allows you opportunity to travel often, as this will appease your curious heart. Circumstances must be always moving somehow, never standing still. Usually you are unconcerned about the opinions of society and will do what you feel is best for yourself and your own life. However, try to develop self-restraint in regards to your sensuality as you can be prone to taking things a bit farther than you should. Discover ways to balance your unconventional interests with the needs of those around you, or you will find yourself more of an outcast than even you are comfortable with.
You are emotionally intense and when you love someone, you love them with your all. Your powerful passions will either magnetically draw others to you or frighten them away. You have a great deal of charm and a way of attracting others to you almost without effort. This influence you have over others can cause you to easily use manipulation tactics, even if these actions are often subconscious. This placement allows you to either change your beliefs into something more beneficial to you, or to aid other people in changing their beliefs.

Your perception and compassion for others causes you to reach out and help people in whatever way you can.
You are confident, driven, and enthusiastic. You are of the mindset that if you try hard enough to achieve a goal, you will eventually do so. There is an awareness of when things should be done and an intuition regarding what methods would be effective, and which ones would not be. Competition can be fun for you and you remain cheerful throughout the challenge. However, this competition is mostly done on your own, as you like to push yourself farther than you have before. Revenge is not something that you usually engage in as you prefer to let go of whatever wrongs others have done you. What you find truly interesting are things that broaden your mind, such as higher learning, spiritual matters, philosophical concepts, or travel. Being active and out in nature appeals to your adventurous spirit. If you could develop self-discipline, you are likely to do well in sporty activities. You exude positivity and greet the world with enthusiasm. Money comes easily to you and therefore you are likely to waste it too readily. You give of yourself and your possessions freely. What happens in the future is not troubling to you as you trust in the universe to provide you with your necessities. Others see you as honourable and honest in your dealings. It is rare that you allow anger to dwell within you for very long; usually you are apt to let things go easily as you believe that staying upset would only be wasteful. When times are tough, you are still able to maintain your optimism and continue to be kind and considerate towards others.
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.

Taureans tend to be purposeful, diligent, resilient, tenacious, unrelenting, realistic, pragmatic, considerate, trustworthy, and faithful (learn about compatibility with Taurus here). They often enjoy manual labour as they prefer being able to see the concrete outcomes of their work. Doing the same thing, with the same schedule, day in and day out is perfectly okay with them as long as they feel they are providing something useful.
To a Taurus, material assets are exceptionally valuable as they feel somewhat unsafe and unsteady without owning something tangible. It is exactly this strong craving to own objects that spurs them forward towards productivity. However, they may project this desire to own onto their romantic relationships and treat others as objects, becoming possessive of their significant others.
Taureans are dependable, cautious, dedicated, persistent, and honourable; they may take longer to get going, but they are able to see a project through to completion.

You may be able to guide a Taurus but they can be quite stubborn if they feel forced into anything; they dig in their heels and refuse to budge.
A Taurus is difficult to anger, however once they are brought to that point, they can express an intense rage; they see red and charge! When angered, they are able to carelessly break all that they have spent precious time to build. Their anger will be slow-burning and they will require a period to sooth their temper until everything has passed out of their psyche. It would be beneficial to allow them the space they need to be on their own during this time as they must take a moment to process what has occurred. Do not force them to engage prematurely or you may trigger another episode and only wind up prolonging the process.
Taureans will hold stubbornly to their viewpoints and it will be challenging to alter them. If however one does manage to change the mind of a Taurus, be sure it is the desired direction as it will be even more difficult to revert their opinion to what it was previously. Taureans are known for remaining calm under pressure and provide realistic remedies to the trouble at hand; this causes others to feel as though they can trust a Taurus to handle the emergency and feel safe in their protection. Taureans become more frustrated than most when they are suffering physical discomforts, ailments, and the like.
A Taurus will prefer being in a peaceful, aesthetically pleasing environment and can be very warm and physically demonstrative. However, they are often worried that they will lose the things they have acquired. This insecurity brings out feelings of envy, indulgence, idleness, lethargy, inflexibility, and a desire to possess. It is crucial that a Taurus develop an appreciation for what is cerebral and non-physical, as this will free them from their tendency to clutch at others possessively as if they belonged to them. They must establish a strong set of principles and beliefs, and learn how to remove themselves so that they will be able to release their hold on both people and their material belongings.
You prefer to filter your emotions through your mind and can come across as rather cool and emotionally reserved. Most people are unable to comprehend the way you handle your emotions and may come to believe that you are unfeeling. This placement bestows a stable emotional nature. You often feel secure when you are involved professionally with groups and engaging in team work. You are innovative, unique, and advanced in your thinking; you utilise these traits to benefit humanity. Your relationships with your relatives may be less significant to you than the ties you hold with your friends as it is likely that you feel more bonded to those in your life that you have CHOSEN. You require free reign in your connections with people and will take a step back from the relationship when others become too involved. A partner that is envious, domineering, and clingy will only push you away. You may find yourself involved with many partners as you tend to be curious. You have an aversion to the conservative and old-fashioned. You are naturally social and outgoing, advanced in your thinking, and self-sufficient. Your open-minded nature entices you to seek knowledge of all sorts. However, empathy and compassion is not a strong suit for you and you struggle to comprehend others on an emotional level. On occasion your inner tension will manifest as expressing unconventional or extreme viewpoints, only for their shock value. You may also be detached, unpredictable, unyielding, stiff, selfish, and defiant.

There is a tendency towards being argumentative or competitive with others verbally, as you have a very innovative and active mind, at times perhaps too active. You express yourself in a direct fashion and never hold back. You enjoy sharing your viewpoints and will do so even when others may not necessarily wish to hear them. You may find yourself rebelling just for the sake of providing a different opinion, and you tend to deliver these opinions too bluntly; try to foster a more diplomatic approach.

You detest others trying to control your actions in any way and require independence to follow whatever path YOU choose to. Your anger can flare up suddenly and intensely, though as soon as the blast is over you will quickly forget that anything was the matter in the first place. Hardly ever bored, instead you have the opposite problem where there is always more to do than you can ever have enough time for.
Romantic relationships bring out your trustworthy, faithful side and you flourish with a partner that is particularly warm and expressive with their feelings. Your senses are highly attuned and this causes you to indulge a bit more than you should, resulting in possible weight gain. Aesthetically pleasing items and environments strongly appeal to you and you find it important that your partner is visually striking. You must be mindful not to place too much significance in material possessions and curb your sensual appetites. You value luxury and prefer not to do any sort of manual labour. It may be that you assume others will do this sort of work for you, even when it is your responsibility. You are creative, loving, charismatic, and empathetic though you will need to learn how to restrain yourself at times. In your romantic partnerships you can easily fall into being envious and trying to own your partner, as well as being unwilling to do the extra work required in a relationship when things get rough. However, you enjoy putting in effort to show your appreciation in useful, concrete means.
You express your energy in a passive, cooperative fashion. You are likely to avoid confrontations in general, preferring to deal with issues indirectly. Being in the lime-light would only make you uncomfortable and therefore you prefer to work out of sight. Unfortunately, you will often rather lose something rather than compete for it. You are not particularly concerned with ambitious pursuits and will not engage in competition to get ahead and this can come across to others as cowardly. Being at the top is not something you would strive for and you are better suited to an assisting position, or aiding or benefiting others somehow. Realistic strategy is difficult for you and it may be a good idea to elicit help when planning ahead. Never certain what exactly it is that you want to do with your life, you wander about aimlessly in search of spiritual fulfilment. You can be quite a daydreamer with an idealistic view, possibly devoting yourself towards religion or spiritual matters. There are artistic inclinations here that can be fruitful if you are able to devote yourself to developing them. You may seem calm on the exterior, though there is a lot happening on the inside. You are also tactful and subtle with a great sense of humour and a strong intuition. However, indecision wreaks havoc in your life and you may be prone to escapism by substance abuse to avoid your duties. It is imperative that you develop self-discipline. Make an effort to create the changes you want to see in your life, do not expect life to hand them to you on a silver platter.

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.
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.
