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.
Shhh! To Gemini, sex is like playing. It has to be fun, a tickle and a laugh. Nothing to be taken too seriously. Read all about Gemini sexuality here.
If the planets symbolize the forces and energies that happen in different situations, then the aspects between the planets symbolize how these energies work together and integrate with each other. There are challenging and easy aspects between the planets and it is up to the individual to choose how they are going to utilize the aspect energies for a positive outcome. The aspects between planets are said to speak to each other. Depending on which planets are aspecting each other and the rest of the natal chart, will determine which planet is dominate and which is not in the aspect between them. But ultimately it is up to the individual to decide how they are going to use the aspects of planets in their chart with their free will, in a meaningful and productive way.
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.
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 imaginative with an amazing sensitivity and keen intuition. You prefer to behave in a caring, tender manner and enjoy a bit of romance. You empathise with others, listening to their troubles while never judging them. Your idealistic views can inspire others through artistic ventures, which you find deeply emotionally satisfying. Large bodies of water soothe your spirit and you are naturally drawn towards them. You may find that photographing the sea is fulfilling for you. You can be very selfless when aiding other people. Your emotions may become unbalanced if you are unable to channel your energy creatively. Metaphysical or mystical subjects fascinate you and you may be talented in these fields. There are tendencies towards escapism from the harsh realities of life and you will spend a lot of time dreaming up a better situation for yourself and basking in this dream-world. However, be mindful that you do not end up abandoning the real world and your obligations to it; the only way to conquer you obstacles is to face them. Your kindness and sensitivity can be susceptible to a sad tale, giving others opportunity to use this to their benefit; be careful who you trust. Learn to restrain your intense feelings and keep your feet on the ground.
You are not the assertive type and may have trouble standing up for yourself when necessary. It is important that you find a way to fight for the things you believe in. Always go with what your gut instincts are telling you as you are highly intuitive. Keep away from mystical endeavours that can cause more harm than good, such as calling forth dark spirits, hypnosis, and fortune-telling. You are very spiritual but not always realistic. It is difficult for you to say no when you are tempted by something, so it would be best if you kept yourself out of these circumstances completely. You tend to absorb the energy that you are surrounded with and therefore need be conscious to avoid negative situations or people; stay in a warm, encouraging environment so as to keep your optimism up. Sometimes you feel the need to seclude yourself from the world and over-indulge. When you start to care for someone, you may be prone to viewing them in rose-coloured glasses and putting them up on a pedestal. When they eventually disappoint you, you can feel as though your entire world is crashing down.
It is possible that you will feel the need to escape through substance abuse or lying to create a better situation for yourself. At times you cannot tell the difference between what is true and what is not. Conflict is difficult for you and when something unpleasant must be confronted, you will often escape to one of your daydreams as a way to avoid it. Too easily will you believe what others have told you without a healthy amount of scepticism. Once someone has appealed to your emotions, they can pretty much tell you anything they wish and you would not doubt them. Try to be aware of this shortcoming and reserve your judgement after you have had some time to think things through rationally. If your feelings have been wounded, it is possible that you will create a false story to get out of the circumstance rather than deal with it directly. Because you are so sensitive, it is difficult for you to decipher when someone is genuinely being honest with you; people can fool you easily. Even the smallest of slights can deeply affect you. When you are feeling hurt in this way, your first reaction may be to remove yourself from others completely, even if this is only in your own mind. Your active imagination can interpret a situation differently than it truly is and when you eventually find the truth of the matter, you can sink into despair. A theme of dishonesty or trickery is likely with this placement, whether it comes from other people or from within yourself.
You are faithful and dedicated in your relationships. Peoples emotions are treated with care, as you would never toy with their feelings. Loyalty is very important to you. You prefer to be secure and are usually confident in your abilities; insecure feelings do not seem to be an issue for you at all. However, you can hold back a bit when expressing your love for another because you wish to be certain that the person is trustworthy. You are modest, and while you enjoy beautiful and lavish surroundings, you do not require them for your happiness. Who someone is on the inside is more valuable to you than what they look like. You want a deep, meaningful relationship and shallow partnerships hold no interest for you. Innately, you comprehend that true love takes time to unfold and becomes stronger the longer you are involved with someone. Friendship is taken seriously as well and you are a loyal, steady friend. One of your best traits is that you are emotionally stable. You are naturally responsible with those you care for and can be very dutiful to them. Self-restraint is not a problem for you and no one would ever consider you a wild child by any means. However, people value the amazing abilities you bring to the table. Inside of you is a very strong individual capable of persevering through even the toughest of challenges.
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 can be unwilling to entertain another persons point of view, preferring to hold tight to your own. Objectivity may also be difficult for you due to self-centredness. You enjoy communicating to others about all the things you love, think, or feel but are disinterested in hearing about other people. You are witty, with a sharp mind and a hunger for knowledge and new stimulation. If you are unable to experience novel situations, you become disinterested in your life; consistent mental stimulus is imperative for you. You are well able to convey your views and can be adept at persuading others, though you need to apply a greater focus while listening to people. Often you are trying to figure out what your next point in the conversation will be and miss out on what was said. You run on a high voltage and may develop little nervous habits. Finding an outlet for your anxiety by use of your hands may alleviate this nervous energy. In addition, try to focus more on what other people are contributing to the situation rather than being immersed in your own talents.
You have a tendency to indulge too much in any way that you can. You are naturally joyful and happy-go-lucky with others, very sociable, and do not restrain yourself emotionally. People seek out your counsel and aid because they know that you have a giving spirit. You are not one to judge, instead you accept people for who they are, foibles and all. You are also not usually anxious, rather you go with the flow and take things as they come. However, sometimes you may give more of yourself than would be wise. Your generosity may enable people to continue in their bad habits instead of pushing them to make it on their own. You are prone to emotional intensity and this may need to be tempered, especially regarding romantic partnerships. Something inside of you pushes you to keep going full-force until you are unable to go any further due to sheer exhaustion. You may feel as though you are always rushing around from one thing to another. Because of your tendency to indulge in rich cuisine, you are susceptible to weight-gain as you age. It is possible that life may try to test your views. Do not be overly positive about your financial situation and keep from being too confident in general. There is a part of you that is scared to see that there could be something wrong with anything you do or think, keeping you from growing as a person. You can help this by understanding that no one is perfect and that making mistakes is part of being human. Your judgement may be faulty at times and legal difficulties may be a problem for you, as well as inability to think ahead, make decisions, or speak the complete truth. You enjoy dramatization and can stretch yourself beyond what you can realistically afford, carelessly taking risks you shouldnt take on concepts that seem great in theory but fall short in practice.
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 are generally positive and full of hope. Acquiring knowledge throughout your life is very valuable to you. You have a good head on your shoulders and are skilled at long-term thinking and strategy. Travelling is particularly beneficial for you as it will open your mind and teach you how to understand yourself, others, and the world more thoroughly. Usually prone to seeing things on a grand scale, you may tend to overlook details, preferring to pass those tasks onto others who are more interested in them. You are likely to be good at public speaking and people tend to believe in and support you as they intuitively feel that you are an honourable person who will do them no harm. Genuine and ethical, you would never purposefully betray or mislead others. However, you are prone to embellish or amplify your tales slightly in order to make a good impression on others. You are full of good humour and find social interactions with others easy and enjoyable. Philosophical or religious theories are likely to be on your mind throughout your life. You have no trouble swiftly learning whatever you are interested in. You have an amazing way of viewing every aspect of a situation without bias and finding a solution that suits all parties involved. Very accepting of others quirks and shortcomings, you are never vengeful or resentful as you believe life is better lived without harbouring negative emotions. You readily take part in debates because they allow you an opportunity to express your opinions and learn new perspectives. You would do well in a field that either entails public speaking or is related to finding justice in some way. Business and selling to the public can also be good avenues for you to explore in your career. This placement bestows luck upon your undertakings and you are likely to be successful due to your optimism and ability to endure through whatever difficulties come your way; your never-ending hope keeps you afloat.
You are drawn to all things unconventional, untraditional, eccentric, or just plain odd. The old-fashioned way of doing things is not for you and you will not pay old traditions any mind when you are making your decisions. Searching for new experiences, you are always ready and willing to go off on a random adventure. You enjoy keeping up to date with all of the newest technology and often are the first to have the latest gadgets and gizmos. You are very independent and need a great deal of space to venture forward into the world. Progressive and innovative, you strive for change and reform of some sort. You think outside the box and can be madly brilliant with finding creative answers to whatever problem you are presented with. Artistic and highly intuitive, you must find an outlet to express these gifts. You are able to remove yourself from the lower impulses of human nature and call on your more enlightened self for guidance and purpose. Many times situations sort of just happen to you, spontaneously and seemingly at random; you can never quite know what to expect in your life. Some unseen force seems to be protecting you as you can get big breaks just when you felt time were running out.
You have a tendency towards being self-centred, emotionally reserved, unconcerned with the feelings of others, afraid, worrying, and self-doubting. You are ambitious, willing to do anything to achieve your aims. Exhibiting caution, you carefully, dutifully wade through life, never skirting your responsibilities. Life is a serious business to you and you work yourself harder than you should at times; attempt a less sombre approach and it might surprise you. Rather than trying something new, you enjoy engaging in what you are accustomed to. You often feel as though you are inadequate, causing you to be lonely and insecure. Anything you attempt to succeed at must be bought with due diligence; you will spend a long while working towards your goals before they are achieved. Interruptions may postpone your plans often, unfortunately. You may also have trouble with the paternal parental figure in your life or people who are in charge. This placement can create considerable challenges for you, however it does bestow you with perseverance and the ability to wait as long as is needed to achieve your goals. It would be beneficial for you to learn how to be giving to others without looking for something in return. Past life karma insists that you act in kindness and generosity in this lifetime, as you had been too self-interested and uncaring in the past. Fate is forcing you to develop ways to work with others in a caring manner.
In addition to the above, you must find a way to conquer your critical nature. You expect nothing less than perfect from yourself and other people, causing you to criticise yourself sternly when you fall short in any way. Try to be a little more realistic in your expectations as they are often not possible to achieve. Your high expectations create a lot of tension and irritability for you. Sometimes you believe that other people are trying to limit you, when the truth is that you are subconsciously drawing in these negative situations to teach you that you must practice tolerance and ease up on yourself and other people. The intent of your tribulations is to show you that you do not need to take life so seriously.
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.
Geminis are out-going, adaptable, inquisitive, perceptive, rational, witty, instinctive, communicative, and articulate. On the other hand, they may be fidgety, contrary, insincere, fault-finding, and hurried. These creatures must be engaged in a career that allows for a great deal of diversity as they detest doing the same thing day in and day out; Geminis can become easily bored. They will often try to do too many things at once and time management isnt one of their greatest skills.
Like a butterfly, Geminis will fly from one thing to another, sampling this and learning about that, never staying long enough to thoroughly absorb the matter at hand. They prefer breadth over depth. It is also unlikely that they will see their many projects through to the end, as they lose interest quickly and move on to the next exciting endeavour. One thing they will always be fascinated with is acquiring knowledge and new information; this lends them to an aptitude in teaching if they can discipline themselves long enough to gather their teaching credentials. Any career in which they will need to persuade another is also appealing to them as they can be quite convincing, even if the tale is only halfway factual; they can be brilliant story tellers.
Geminis crave and require a great deal of mental stimulation. To achieve this, they will tend to read whatever they can get their hands on and socialise readily and extensively. The urgency they feel to obtain this mental activity will either drive them to achieve success or cause them to endlessly move about from one situation to another, seeking ever more interesting conquests but accomplishing little.
Having a gift for gab, Geminis amuse others with their charming persona, lively banter, and robust humour. They are always aware of just which words to use to elicit the response they are looking for, though at times they will so quickly alter the topics of conversation that many cannot follow them.
Due to their lightning quick mental reflexes, they may become impatient when waiting on others to finish articulating their thoughts, so much so that the Gemini will often jump in and speak for them. They must develop patience and tolerance for those who may not be as quick as they are.
Geminis can be indecisive as they are very objective and can understand the value in each side of contradicting perspectives. Though they may at times play favourites and back up the opinion of the person they are most interested in that particular minute. Nevertheless they are fickle and can convincingly argue for the exact opposite side when the situation changes.
Geminis tend to intellectualise their emotions and keep a cool head. They prefer to rely on logic rather than sentiment when evaluating situations and making their decisions. It is likely that they will comprehend other peoples behaviours, though be unable to empathise with them.
Unfortunately, Geminis are often insincere, unrealistic, inconsistent, unreliable, unable to focus their attention, and complain endlessly when in a negative place (learn about compatibility with Gemini here).
Stress is a particular problem for Geminis as they are usually high strung. They must learn to relax and quiet their mind or they will become sick from anxiety. It may be helpful to focus on someone other than themselves and direct their tensions towards something beneficial.
You are caring, giving, and affectionate when expressing your love and you inspire those close to you to act in a dedicated and faithful manner towards you. Deep down, you may feel like you are a kind of royalty and you expect to be treated as such. You are unable to stand by a partner that you are not proud of; you need to be able to hold them in high regard. Appreciation, and being seen by others, is necessary for you. Being ignored is one of the most difficult things for you to handle and you can find yourself nursing heavy wounds when you are treated in this fashion. You prefer to be direct and honest with others, and vice versa. You are well-liked, giving, distinguished, faithful, motivated and diligent, with a probing mind. The situations that occur in your life, as well as your emotions, tend to be exaggerated to an extent. Unfortunately, at times you are capable of being arrogant, prideful, and flashy, as well as being rather too open and sensitive with your feelings.
Your mind is connected with your memories, feelings, and emotions from the past. You tend to hold on to the memories of things because they give you security. You are highly interested in inner, subjective, and personal issues, and your thinking is based more on feelings, intuition, personal experiences, and prejudices rather than reason or logic. Intellectual abilities and accomplishments without heart or soul mean little to you. You are a sensitive listener and deeply interested in a person’s feelings and inner life. In addition to psychology, you are probably drawn to education, art, poetry, music, or mythology. You are shy and somewhat reticent about speaking in public, but you will open yourself up and share your thoughts in small, intimate, little family-type circles of people you know and trust. You perhaps enjoy keeping a diary or chronicle of your thoughts and feelings regarding your day-to-day happenings. Your mind retains and absorbs knowledge easily. You are intuitive, psychic, and sympathetic, yet may become depressed over your own problems and the problems of the world. You may have difficulty in getting to the root of the problem because you so easily become involved emotionally with the people instead of the problem. You may have difficulty in making decisions or you may simply change your mind constantly. Mental focus and control must be developed.
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.
There is a well-developed sense of pride. You have a desire to achieve and be admired for these achievements, or for the person that you are. You like to be the winner, the one at the top. You dislike anyone telling you what you should be doing or to remain behind the scenes. You want to be seen and will often create drama in order to make sure that happens. You may arrogantly declare you are correct in every situation, as you dislike being wrong. You are driven, diligent, aggressive, dynamic, inventive, and full of energy; competition is highly appealing to you. Life may seem like one big game to be won. You seek praise and value honesty and acting in accordance to ones moral standards; nothing less is acceptable. Though you are extremely self-assured, there is a chance that you may feel insecure and self-protective, possibly acting abrasive, if your confidence is challenged. You are spontaneous, eager, motivated, and energetic. Once you have decided on the object of your desire, you will stop at nothing to win them over; displaying great passion and enthusiasm. When you have something you wish to express, you do so, no holds barred. However, be careful not to act foolishly and carelessly where money is involved; gambling can become an issue for you. You can also become touchy, confrontational, and possessive. Keep an eye on your heart, as this area of your body is particularly sensitive. Be sure to get plenty of exercise as this will release some of the excess emotional energy before it manifest in an unhealthy way.
You are aggressive, excitable, full of energy, and always ready to start on one of the many projects swimming inside your brain. You enjoy sharing your viewpoints with others and can effortlessly convince them to follow you on your endeavours. You are likely to be a leader and can easily see the entire situation at hand. However, it would be wise for you to learn how to wait for things to unfold naturally, rather than rushing in impatiently; try to think things through thoroughly beforehand. There may also be a tendency towards believing and stating that you can accomplish more than you realistically are able to. Take care to be more accepting of concepts that may not be your own. You are naturally very persuasive and would make an excellent salesperson. Be careful that you do not delude yourself about your capabilities as you can be overly optimistic and prideful.
Your nature is best described as diligent, hard-working, precise, effective, methodical, orderly, timid, frugal, prompt, and academically inclined. Your reasonable mind and administrative talents allow you to become a leader, however you are often too exacting and demanding of others. You are able to do routine, monotonous projects without complaint as you enjoy details and have no trouble focusing on your tasks. You enjoy investigating and probing for answers as to why things work the way they do; you may also be suited to mathematics. You have a tendency to worry about your health to an extreme and may easily fall into gloominess and despair. Cleanliness and organisation are paramount to you and this extends to your work environment. You may find that you isolate yourself from others as you often prefer to be on your own. Mentally alert, you require a good deal of mental stimulation so as to keep you from becoming disinterested in life; boredom may cause anxiety for you. Try to be more accepting of others rather than expecting that they display your perfectionistic standards.
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 expect that every piece of information be proven to you before you will accept it, as you search for truth in all matters. You try to live your life in a philosophical way, though you can swing to either being broad-minded, idealistic yet accepting or blindly and rigidly following what you have heard. Traveling is important to you, whether this be on a physical plane or spiritual one. You are gifted with learning languages and enjoy engaging with new cultures.
You place a high significance on your public image and your need to acquire success may be in the forefront for you emotionally. It is likely that you are somehow involved with the public or womens affairs, especially in a way that allows you to be visible to society; being of use to humanity is important to you. Career pursuits may alternate throughout your life.

Always interested in learning, especially in regards to philosophy or religious studies, you might find yourself teaching others or being a lifelong student. Due to your ability to express yourself, you may do well selling to the public, such as with advertising, though you are also likely to pursue law or justice in some way.
Friendly, outgoing, and full of charm; you thrive in social situations. Others generally enjoy your company and relationships in general tend to be pleasant and easy for you. You may need to be mindful that you are not being taken advantage of, as you may not stand up for yourself due to an aversion to any sort of conflict. You are probably drawn to someone who is financially successful and physically attractive. You want to be able to spend time together enjoying all of the luxury life has to offer. Make sure to keep your expectations of others realistic.
You truly value partnerships, although acquiring affection may be a little too important to you. Imbalance is something that you need to look out for, as you may expect too much from your partner and relationship. Try not to make a mountain out of a molehill.
You strive to find a romantic partner that will provide you with all of the luxuries life has to offer. You are looking to indulge and are seeking someone who will supply you with the opportunity. Marriage often raises your social status. Be mindful not to become too engrossed in sensualities as they may lead you to trouble. You despise conflict much preferring your partner to be less aggressive and more accommodating. If Venus is negatively aspected, you may need to be careful that your partners moral values are as honourable as they seem.
You are assertive and highly motivated to achieve in your career. You aspire to reaching the top and it is likely that you will, as you have great administrative and managerial capabilities. You prefer to be the reason for your own success, leading yourself rather than following others. Self-sufficient and goal oriented, you may encounter some tension with those in higher positions at work, your parents, or other authority figures. You are best suited for working in an environment where the challenges vary, rather than being stuck doing the same thing day in and day out.
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.
Though you are socially popular and enjoy engaging with others, there are only a handful of people you would actually call friend, and it is likely that you met these people long ago as your friendships typically go the distance. You are often drawn to social circles that are more sombre in nature or that have some sort of deeper reason for existing and generally feel extremely loyal and obligated to these groups. It may happen that you put a great deal of effort into these groups, with very little appreciation. It is important for you to practice patience and be diligent in your work in order to attain your ambitions. You will find yourself thriving in your later years, but only if you are able to learn from your early challenges. Feeling like the odd-man-out in social situations is probable in this placement; you see yourself distinctly unique.
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 mind intuitively absorbs information instead of accessing it in a conscious, step-by-step method. You have an artistic way of thinking that you filter through your strong idealistic views. Your thoughts come to you in vivid flashes and are enhanced by your rich imagination. You may find you are intuitively aware of things before they happen and can often accurately predict the future. It is easy for you to sense what is happening in others minds before they do. Because most of your knowledge is acquired in an intuitive way that deviates from conventional methods, you can find yourself feeling insecure and anxious as you are unable to explain where it come from. Your mind can put you into a dream-like state that you indulge in to the point of avoiding your duties; you can be quite a procrastinator. Try to be more reliable and especially avoid further escapism through substance abuse. There may be unresolved issues with family and other relations from a past-life that will need to be addressed.
Your work environment may bring forth great personal change in you, transforming you in some vital way. Work related matters and employee labour relations may be something you engage in readily at your workplace. You have high expectations for both yourself and fellow employees and must be careful not to become too rigid, unconsciously critical, and commanding when leading others. There is a tendency for you to work yourself until you cannot physically withstand more, often from sheer determination. Talented in analysis and problem solving, you would be well suited as a detective or psychologist; you have an innate ability to bring to light peoples deepest concerns. This placement focuses on health and healing, whether this be positively expressed as a talent in healing others, or negatively expressed as becoming obsessed with your own well-being. Your body may be more susceptible to issues regarding the colon or deep rooted infections.
