At the exact minute of your birth, the astrological sign that is rising on the eastern horizon is designated the Ascendant or Rising Sign. The Ascendant is how you dawn on the world, how you present yourself to others. If someone were to guess your astrological sun sign, they would guess it based on what you show the world, which is your rising sign. Its the characteristics and personality traits that you put forth for all to see. Its the stained glass window that you project outward for the rest of your chart to flow through.
Those with Scorpio rising are typically reserved on the outside while intense on the inside, they are private and full of mystery, have a strong will, can be quiet, though they are brave and dedicated, unyielding, creative, independent, disciplined (though not always with their desires), and may be difficult to read. The soul of the individual with the Scorpio rising is fighting a battle between their lowly physical desires and enlightenment. In the end, the lower self must yield and be reborn, rising up from the ashes to a higher understanding. You will be involved on all levels, mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Outside you seem cool and unfazed, though inside there are intense emotions ever-present; you are a very deep person. You insist to be made aware of other peoples secrets though you will not disclose your own, preferring to remain quiet as to your intentions. You have a sharp mind and enjoy investigative endeavours. You insist on penetrating every hidden cavern, understanding the ins and outs, why and how. You are very determined when you apply yourself, strong-willed, and can conquer any obstacle, even if the obstacle is you. You must move past any possessive, resentful, or envious tendencies. You are drawn to subjects that incorporate mystical topics, sexuality, the healing arts, or death. When you are good, you are very very good, but when you are bad, you can be a complete scoundrel. You must develop a way to forgive others as this is an important life lesson for you. Scorpio is ruled by both Pluto and Mars and therefore their placement in your chart will be significant.
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.
This placement can create a few alternate possibilities as you will either be prone to breaking the law, be too afraid to take even sensible risks, come to be extremely co-dependent on others, incorporate severe power-hungry tendencies where you try to rise at all costs, have uncontrollable violent outburst, or be lazy, deceitful, disloyal, cruel, cold, intolerant, ruthless, spiteful, odd, or a threat to others safety. You are plagued with internal strain and are constantly fighting yourself as to whether you wish to act dutifully or be free to do as you may. There may be trouble with collaborating with others, as this causes you great tension. This tension may be a result of your desire to please others when youd rather be doing things differently or from not wanting to do what you should be doing. It would be easier if you would get your duties out of the way as quickly as possible so that you may concentrate on the things youd rather do. Anger is easily triggered in you and you can become quite difficult with little warning. It is imperative that you learn to accept others for the unique individuals that they are, as this is only fair. Try to foster forgiveness and let go of past slights. Find a way to release the pent up feelings you carry inside slowly rather than exploding uncontrollably when you cannot keep them in any longer.
You have a positive outlook on life and a strong belief in yourself, though both of these will tend to be overly inflated. You over-indulge and are prone to excess. It may be difficult for you to fully commit yourself to anyone as you can be a bit self-involved. At times you are narrow-minded, particularly when religion is involved. Your reasoning can be a bit faulty and you tend to over-promise in all of your excitement and later be unable to follow through. You may come across as arrogant while inside you are insecure instead. You tend to talk yourself up, exaggerating your skills. You have trouble focusing on anything long enough to see it to completion. Big hopes and dreams fall short in reality as you are unable to motivate yourself or persevere enough to make them happen. However, you always remain hopeful regardless.
Frustrations are likely to rise as you are unhappy with the duties and restrictions you have been dealt. You may go through many trials and tribulations in order to test your convictions. There is also a possibility of trouble with the law and authority figures. It would be a good idea to look within and establish at which point self-assurance becomes narcissism. You like to feel as though you are someone worthy and valuable which can quickly turn into arrogant behaviour, causing you to showcase yourself to others in a flashy manner. You can be ungrateful, prone to wasting your assets and energy. You should be mindful that you have calculated your decisions with care as you may lose out harshly because of debts, hearsay, investing, or your fondness for a gamble. Your social status is valuable to you. Be mindful as your health may be susceptible to trouble with the circulatory system and you must pay attention to the health of your arteries. Your tendency to over-indulge may also create health concerns, particularly issues with weight; make sure you get plenty of exercise and activity.
Mentally you are prone to both curiosity and suspicion, probing depths to discover whatever is buried beneath. The more you sense someone trying to hide something, the stronger you insist on figuring it out. All of lifes mysteries appeal to you and you are fascinated with death, sexuality, birth, rebirth, the mystical realm, and curing ailments. Despite your insistence that others keep nothing from you, you yourself will not divulge your own secrets or intentions, clutching at the information as though it were a formidable weapon people will use against you if you were to let out the smallest morsel of data. Your probing mind will do well in the psychological fields where you can spend your days unearthing peoples secrets, analysing them, and providing suggestions for healing processes. With keen observational skills, you easily and accurately interpret other peoples true motives and objectives, almost as if you have a spider sense working within you. You are drawn to the supernatural and enjoy reading books or watching films that are mysterious or that contain elements of the paranormal. You certainly have a dark side to you and can become secretly involved in unwholesome situations or circumstances where you need to uncover a shady mystery. However, you do not view these inclinations in this way, rather you just want to discover and understand something new that most others would not be interested in. You are highly influential when you express your viewpoints and can have tunnel vision when you find something you are interested in. Try not to be close-minded when you are in that zone, as allowing an opposing viewpoint into your consideration will teach you more in the end. In addition, you can be a bit high-strung and your nerves are easily affected, causing you to feel frustrated and impatient. Sometimes you push yourself too far and you need to be aware of your limitations and when it is time to take a break and recuperate.
You are spontaneous, responsive, and innovative with an active vitality and ability to make confident decisions with ease. The mundane daily schedule of life is unappealing to you and if forced to endure this monotonous ordeal day in and day out, you are likely to feel trapped. You need something to be happening, something new and different, especially if it is a type of activity where you can express your agility and well-timed pace; relaxation may be a challenge for you as you require being constantly active. Much of your energy may come from the high-strung nerves you possess and the internal restlessness you feel regularly. You strive to be a part of projects that require reforming a system or changing tradition somehow. Highly self-sufficient, you dislike having to answer to anyone and need a great deal of space to get into whatever tickles your fancy at the moment. You are often the leader in whatever endeavours you start on, providing inspirational guidance to those working with you. However, you are not one to listen when others try to advise you; you feel you must go through the situation yourself to comprehend it fully and then come to your own conclusions and observations, even if this can be destructive at times. Previous life karma is good and you have been able to keep your temper and impulses relatively balanced. Continue on the path you have started in your past; your intuitive nature serves you well. You can be rebellious when given instruction, however you also sense when it is important for you follow without causing issue. Though you work to create change, you are keen to observe when the price of change may be too high. You have a magnetic personality that draws others to you and when you lead, you do not do so because you are power-hungry but rather because you have great insight into what is likely to happen and how best to maneuver the situation to succeed. Often your life is full of unexpected and rather strange circumstances, though you do not mind having to handle them as you are always up for enhancing your abilities.
Those born in your generation have the ability to be of aid to humanity as a whole. Let your intuition guide you in assisting others.
You are romantically idealistic and often will fall in love with the idea of someone rather than for who they actually are. Your tendency is to believe someone is your perfect soulmate, incapable of doing wrong, which leads you into becoming disillusioned when they inevitably disappoint you. It is very difficult for you to recover when this occurs. It would be most beneficial for you to take time to get to know someone with both of your eyes wide open, before coming to any conclusions about them; the same is true about the world at large. Your idealism in regards to what relationships should be like tends to create conflict for your real-life partnerships.
Another possibility in this placement is having dreamt up some perfect imaginary partner and searching for this person your whole life, not realising that no one could ever measure up as this person could never realistically exist. Your spirit is wrecked when the day comes that you finally understand that your fantasy is unattainable. Rather than seeking someone that fits in with your fantasy, look instead for someone that, while flawed as all humans are, can still be a great partner for you. Idealism is great as long as it is tempered with realism. Strangely enough, while you can be very romantic and daydream about the adventures you may have with your soulmate, you find it difficult to actually commit to any relationship. You are often elusive in regards to romantic endeavours and insincere to both the person involved, and yourself.
Caution must be taken not to be drawn into an unhealthy partnership where one person is far more dependent on the other or where one gives too much of themselves or sacrifices their well-being just to appease the other. Equality in a partnership is crucial and you should not feel like you need to save the other person or that they must consistently aid you.
You are particularly reactive to your environment and prefer being in a beautiful, harmonious place where you can foster your creative talents in some way. You are naturally drawn to artistic things or people. You possess an otherworldly allure that people find captivating. Sensuality in all forms attracts you, as does anything out of the norm or which requires you to use your keen intuition. Love situations do not exactly fill you with security. Your delicate nature may be difficult to handle sometimes but you must do your best to push forward. Try to be understanding that everyone has their shortcomings but it does not always make them unworthy of pursuing. Do not expect your mate to know what you are thinking at all times, but rather explain to them the inner workings of you. It is not a sign that they do not care for you when they are unable to read your thoughts; express yourself directly.
A lesson for you to learn in this life is how to change your worldly beliefs into spiritual wisdom. You may find material assets falling away unexpectedly without explanation to show you that the material things you own are unimportant; the experiences you have during your life, and the wisdom you gain from them, are the only things that will matter when you are leaving this life. Develop your ability to care for others without expectations, forgive them their foibles, and let go of any resentment you have built up. Do not be bothered by small issues, though take care not to be stepped on by going to the other extreme and becoming far too accommodating. You are prone to escapism through substance abuse when life becomes hard for you to handle. Rather than avoiding your troubles, roll up your sleeves and face them. Only then will you find the inner strength you had within yourself all along. The more you tackle things directly, the easier it will all become.
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 great deal of ambition and drive to succeed, but you often doubt yourself. You lack confidence in your abilities and are unsure whether others are going to respond to you positively. You have no faith in yourself to overcome lifes obstacles which is why you often work yourself to the bone trying to demonstrate that you are worthy. You are highly insecure and are scared that you will fail. Often you cling to the things you have because you feel that somehow they will be gone tomorrow. It is hard for you to bond with others as you tend to keep your emotions bottled up. Instead, you attempt to purchase peoples love and loyalty. However, that is not possible; you need to acquire this with a genuine connection. How can people see the wonderful things within you if you cannot see them yourself? Your insecurities are so pronounced that when you are close to someone, you require them to consistently reassure you that they care for you, leaving the relationship strained in the end. Perhaps re-think your idea of what it means to be emotionally secure. Deep down you believe that you need to be someone else so that people will accept you or care for you. Many times you feel as though you are the odd one out in a group situation and will act cold and reserved, when the truth is that it is actually very important to you that you are involved equally. Due to your sensitivity, you are likely to wall up and refuse to let anyone in instead of facing the possible hurts and vulnerability that may surface by opening up to someone deeply.
Being cautious and keeping yourself closed off emotionally makes it a challenge to form a bond with someone. Taking time for yourself to reflect and work on personal growth can help you become stronger emotionally as well as allow you to feel more secure, however you need to defeat the tendency to view isolation as rejection and the lonely feeling that comes along with that perspective. You are prone to feeling anxious, irritated, and depressed at times. It seems as though somehow life always throws a wrench in the works when you are trying to achieve something. You may feel like the universe is working in opposition to your best efforts and that you alone must do the heavy lifting for humanity. You are not living this life by yourself, there are others around willing to help you and care for you if only you would let them in. In a past life, you expressed your feelings in an open and loving manner and were cast off because of it. Now you are scared to try again, instinctively believing that somehow you will be disregarded and hurt once more. Your perspective on how to become emotionally secure is incorrect; it is not about others and what they do or dont do, but about how you see things. Despite your cool, reserved demeanour, inwardly you are very caring and crave to love and be loved. Of course there is a chance that your feelings may be harmed, but that is part of life and each painful experience can help you grow if you allow it to.
This placement stands out amongst the others as it has a particularly strong influence. At your best, you gain wisdom by going through something yourself, as even when you do something wrong the information you have gained will carry you. During the most emotionally difficult times in your life, you find a way to rise back up; nothing can keep you down for long and you persevere through your challenges. You are greatly aided by the mental drive this placement bestows.
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 highly imaginative and can easily visualise whatever you can think up. You are able to make your fantasies come true by applying your excellent reasoning abilities. Topics that are related to metaphysics, the supernatural, or alternative medicine tend to appeal to you and you enthusiastically explore them. It is also possible that you are able to heal others by using your hands. You have an amazing awareness of what is going on in your mind on a subliminal level and ability to project it outwards. There is a large amount of artistic talent in this placement and when you feel properly motivated you can create truly inspirational pieces. Science, and its systematic approach, feels foreign to you and you do best in the creative realm, learning by being exposed rather than by traditional methods. Make an effort to visit areas where you can spend time near lakes, the ocean, or other bodies of water as they are a calming effect on your spirit. Extremely sensitive, you have accurate intuition and are easily inspired. It is possible for you to communicate with the spiritual world through your subconscious while asleep.
Your emotions vary wildly and it is anyones guess as to when or why they will alter. Very self-sufficient, you abhor being restricted for any reason. You are drawn to everything that is unique, strange, or shocking, though you tend to jump from one thing to the next without allowing yourself to master any of it. You are unable to restrain yourself yet it is often the best thing for you. You seek out thrills, variety, exciting adventures, and feel like a zombie if forced to do the same thing day in and day out. Fresh concepts and ideas are like air to you and you are enthused to involve yourself in them. Sometimes you can rush in too quickly, and perhaps carelessly, particularly in regards to your romantic partnerships. You rebel when you perceive your freedom will be curtailed somehow. It is difficult for you to stand by your word as you never know if your emotions about the matter will change tomorrow, 5 years from now, or not at all. Everything is done spontaneously. There is a tendency towards acting selfishly and putting yourself first above all. The situation at home can be volatile and the bonds you form with females are as well. Try to think about your feelings before expressing them without warning. People are often confused about where they stand with you because one moment you are cold and the next sociable. Sometimes you will consciously keep yourself at a distance as you are worried that getting close to people may somehow limit your independence. Your spirit needs to be allowed room to roam as it may. For personal growth, you must find a way to subdue the emotional chaos that lives within and surfaces at random. If your feelings are negatively triggered, you can react irrationally or recklessly. This careless activity causes you to be prone to accidental injury. You feel tense when you are inactive as your nervousness needs an outlet. At times you will do something odd just for the shock-value. Your need to be unrestrained can make it challenging to settle down in one location or with a partner. As you are prone to angry bursts, it would be best if you developed a way to hone your patience.
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.
You have trouble being compassionate towards others as you are rather self-concerned, paying more attention to what is happening in your life than in the lives of others. You may feel at odds internally, as what you believe you want and need are not necessarily the same things you require deep down; you are torn in opposing ways. Your indecision is largely due to this inner battle. Constantly weighing this course versus another, you find yourself anxious and frustrated, never able to make a decision either way. You want to do what is right, though you are uncertain what that is. You are conflicted between your own individuality and forming close bonds with others. The confusing signals that you convey cause people to be unsure about how to react to you or what it is that you desire, creating instability in your partnerships. You must find your centre and equilibrium between your inner feelings and the way you act. Recognise that your moods are easily changeable and try to find ways to counter this. During times when you have a greater amount of energy, use this period to be productive. During points where you feel run down, work more steadily and relax a bit. One moment you are the voice of reason and the next you are nursing your delicate feelings. You may be blind to other peoples emotions and necessities and therefore can be unresponsive.
The Planets in astrology symbolize what is being addressed. They behave as actors in a production. What is happening on stage? The signs in astrology are the way that the actors behave on stage. They ask the question how? How is the planet motivated? How are they living their life, in their highest good or in their shadow? The signs describe in detail how the actor might react, behave or conduct themselves.
Do not rush a Libra into a decision; it is important to them to have the proper time to look at every angle of a situation before they reach an outcome. At worst, they may be debating at such great length that they become stuck and are unable to decide one way or another. One moment they try one side, the next the other, assuming that if they try each one, a resolution will come to them. Libras are naturally just, fair, harmonious, amiable, pleasant, out-going, romantic, reliant on others, disingenuous, lazy, and pleasure-seeking (learn about compatibility with Libra here). They feel most complete when they are in a relationship or on a team of some sort. Their environment is important to them and they need this to be peaceful and comfortable.
Libras have a hard time keeping their own company, as they find interacting with others to be vital to their well-being. They prefer to have someone in their life they can truly share with. However, they must watch out for being in love with the idea of love, rather than the person themselves. They can be rather romantic and become caught up in the moment, running thoughtlessly into a commitment before truly knowing the other person.
Unfortunately, Libras are so sensitive to the vibes of those around them, that if there is disharmony, the Libra may allow others to get away with more than they should just to keep the peace. Libras are also so bent on keeping everyone happy that they may sacrifice their own well-being in the process.
Trouble with indecision can be a tough challenge for a Libra to rise above. It is likely that many beneficial chances may pass them up while they are considering their options. They find it difficult to decide on one option when they can see the merit in all of them. However, this allows them to be experts in counselling others because they can see the entire picture rather than being biased towards one side or the other. They must understand that they cannot be everything to everyone and learn when to stand their ground.
Another issue for Libras are their tendency to work as little as they are able to get away with. They are not likely to be seen as hard-working individuals. It is not that they are lazy per say, more so that they require inspiration.
It is imperative that a Libra develop a way to make decisions for themselves, otherwise they will be taken advantage of by more assertive characters, as it is easy for these people to influence a Libras thought process.
Librans are intellectuals with a creative mindset and outgoing personality. Often others will not be made aware of their mental activity due to their pleasing and sociable demeanour. This trait may instead come out in subdued methods of manipulation, which they are particularly gifted in.
You are a dutiful and sombre individual, preferring to work first and play later. You are rather reserved with your feelings as overt emotional displays make you uncomfortable and accepting aid from others is difficult for you; you like to project an image of being emotionally strong. You may feel deep down that you are not lovable, not wanted, or not good enough somehow and this creates a strong desire to succeed at all costs. Achieving your goals allows you to feel as though you are significant and necessary. It is important that you learn how to feel secure within yourself, as you can become easily hurt through actions that may not have necessarily been done with negative intent. At times you may feel weighed down, like you alone carry the heavy burdens.
Co-dependency is not something you feel comfortable with and you will insist that both you and others toughen up. You may need to develop an understanding of human nature in regards to emotional needs as no one can or should do everything on their own, and sometimes it is okay to give in to emotions; do not be so hard on yourself. Generally you are likely to be viewed as strong and uncompromising, treating emotions with the same attitude you would a business transaction. Your emotions may indeed be strong and profound, though you will not usually express these feelings outwardly. It would do you well to let go a bit at times, to have fun and unwind. You can be conventional, dependable, and driven, with a talent for bringing your ambitious to fruition. However, this strong ambition may create a thirst for power that may cause you to become calculating and only looking out for your own best interests with little regard to others. You crave respect. Your feelings are usually stable, though may be icy at times.
You are most gifted in being able to comprehend every angle of a situation and come to a diplomatic resolution to the problem. You are rational, harmonious, just, perceptive, and socially adept. You work well in a team environment. You are able to stay cool and focused on the issue at hand and remain impartial; this makes you well-suited to a career in mediation, politics, or consulting. You strive to keep justice in a harmonious fashion, regardless the circumstances. Highly artistic, you are able to work in creative endeavours or projects that deal with people of different cultures. Your mind is logical and balanced, and you easily convince others of your viewpoints. You are adaptable and prefer to hear every aspect of a story. However, this trait can make you indecisive as you too easily comprehend each angle and it can be difficult for you to decipher which story holds the most weight. Comparing and contrasting, analysing continuously while finding interesting ways to explain your discoveries; this is what you are most skilled in.
You are patiently loyal to those you love, giving and helpful whenever you are needed. You tend to express your affection through acts of kindness rather than through words or some sort of extravagant romantic gesture. Something about being too emotionally open makes you uncomfortable and youd prefer to be more reserved in your expressions. There may be insecurity that you are unattractive or unlovable somehow. Your own doubt causes you to become fault-finding in your significant other and difficult to please. Beware that you do not wait so long for the elusive perfect partner that you waste your chances at happiness with someone real. You expect your environment to be neat and organised. Developing a way to aid others can help you to counter your tendency to complain and criticise. Despite these tendencies, you are gentle, compassionate, and kind which allows you to do well in professions where you are caring for others.
You hold a large amount of both mental and physical energy. Always on the go, buzzing from one place to another, engaged in your many interests, sometimes you are involved in more than one activity at the same moment! With your lively mentality and curiosity, you require a large amount of stimulation to keep you from getting bored. You seek out new data and love to learn about anything you can get your hands on. It is also of great fun to you to engage yourself in challenging, competitive conversations with others where you can show off your wit and intelligence. You may find yourself suffering from nervous tensions due to your overly active mind, and it would be beneficial for you to establish some sort of exercise routine to relieve the pressure. You are likely to be animated and expressive, often communicating using your hands. You probably enjoy working with the hands somehow and it is possible that you do not have a dominant hand preference. At times you can become so excited about an opportunity that you will venture forward without thinking things through; try to slow down long enough to obtain a clear picture of the situation before entering into it. You dislike standing still and may engage yourself in activities that are not necessarily wholesome or beneficial, just for the thrill of having something to do. Exploring distant lands and cultures is enjoyable to you as you can acquire knowledge from each new situation. There is a tendency towards being prone to accidents involving your arms or shoulders, particularly accidents involving excessive heat. Many times these misfortunes could have been prevented had you been more patient rather than rushing to get things done. It would be best for you to stick to shorter assignments as you work well for brief, intense amounts of time but encounter difficulty if you must sustain your energy and interest for extended periods. Often you will try to multitask, though end up taking on more than you can realistically complete. You dislike routine and require diversity in your projects and in your life in general. You are mentally quick and bright and are interested in playing games or somehow testing your mental agility. Mental competition with others tickles your fancy and you have more stamina for mental activities than you do for the physical sort. On your journey to success, you prefer to utilise your excellent social skills, intellect, quick-wit, astute observations, and ability to articulate yourself. You have a robust sense of humour that tends towards the dark side. Try to pace yourself as you may throw yourself into things with full concentration, only to find you cannot sustain the energy and are unable to continue; working a bit more slowly and steadily will allow you to better keep your word.
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.
A strong leader, with excellent administrative and managerial capabilities; you know when to be tactful. You are independent, traditional, well-organised, and proficient. You tend to be more reserved emotionally, seeming to others as aloof and uncaring. Affection is important to you, though you do not know how to go about acquiring or expressing it, instead you remove yourself from others. You feel a sense of obligation essential when love is present, and you find yourself preferring to do something for someone or present them with gifts, rather than giving them what theyd really like, yourself. However, there are times when you can be harsh, temperamental, and envious; you must be mindful not to use dishonest tactics when realising your goals. You prefer to be respected for being effective and proficient. In health matters, you are susceptible to diseases of the heart.
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?

You tend towards certain extremes, either you show a great deal of generosity, or you find yourself behaving in a deceitful manner. Be mindful not to participate in risky financial endeavours. Karma seems to play a role for you, as you may find that if you do not have genuinely good intentions, you will experience material losses through deceptive actions from others. However, if you are honest in your dealings, your finances will steady. Try to always be upfront when handling these matters.
Knowledge and quest for truth are important to you as you are trying to comprehend lifes purpose.
