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 Gemini rising are typically social, talkative, versatile, adaptable, uncertain, mentally quick, shallow, and unpredictable. You are full of wit and cleverness though you may have trouble with nervousness or anxiety as your energies tend to run on a high frequency. You are always on the lookout to engage in a novel experience and there may be two very different sides to your personality that may seem contradictory to others. For you, it is second nature to express to others the knowledge you have gained and you strive to continuously acquire new information. You are happy to travel and read a fair bit as both of these allow you to learn something fresh. New stimulation is crucial to your livelihood and you enjoy diversity to such an extent that you may never fully master any one subject, preferring to become mildly proficient in all sorts of things; shallow and wide rather than deep, is more your flavour. On the outside it may seem that you are sure of yourself, but deep down you do not feel very confident at all. You love to communicate! All forms of communication are enjoyed from verbal to written and you are even fond of using hand gestures. An important lesson for you to learn is to find a way to manage your energy rather than spreading your efforts about wastefully; focus yourself. Gemini is ruled by Mercury and therefore its placement in your chart will be significant.
Shhh! Cancer regards sex as the finest way in which two persons devoted to one another can show their love. So, it’s almost a sacred thing. Read all about Cancer 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 are highly imaginative and spend a good deal of time with the fantasies swimming around in your mind. Precognitive visions are likely to show themselves in this placement and you will be prone to idealism. You may find it difficult to assert yourself and instead prefer to just go with the current rather than making your own waves. Artistic pursuits appeal to you since you are a natural artist, though there is particular interest in musical ventures or poetic writing, as you are gifted in these fields. You are drawn to the sounds of the guitar, violin, bass, cello and anything else featuring strings. Due to your sensitive nature, you are sometimes taken down the wrong path purely by subconscious influence from the environment you are in or the people you surround yourself with. Your mind is often muddled and it might be a challenge for you to alter your inner self in a beneficial manner as you as lack the clarity needed to do so. Escapism via substance abuse needs to be watched for and can ruin you if you are not careful; saying no can prove to be difficult for you in general. Stability does not come naturally. Do not dabble in unwholesome mystical practices such as the calling forth of spirits; you never know what trouble you may find yourself in spiritually for doing so. Mentally, you follow an abstract way of reasoning rather than the step-by-step pattern that others are prone to, and therefore you may find it difficult to communicate your own thoughts out loud. It is probably easier for you to convey your feelings in artistic pursuits or through the written word instead. Traditional education is probably not the best way for you to learn and you would do well having a teacher that can instruct you by example instead. You quickly pick up on hints and vibrations, although it can be tough for you to decipher what the actual meaning is behind them due to your inclination to let your imagination run away with you. There is likely to be trouble with focusing on daily life responsibilities or with figuring out the difference between fact and fantasy. You are prone to ponder the existence of other realms. Taking photographs may be an enjoyable hobby. Due to your high sensitivity, there is a nervousness and tension inside of you that make it necessary for you to retreat into seclusion for short periods on a daily basis to reset. Many authors, artists, and performers share this placement.
Independence is a challenge for you. You are likely to become dependent on others to provide for you and carry your load, even when you are fully aware that it would be best for you to learn to rely on yourself instead. This is especially true in regards to those you have deep feelings for. You feel uncomfortable and unsafe with the many fluctuations you encounter in your life and this is a large reason as to why you depend on others to assist you.
You are mentally adept and prepared for anything. You enjoy a challenge and strive to absorb information from every turn. Reading is most likely the best way for you to take in new data and you will read anything that you can get your hands on. You are likely to be talented in mechanics and delight in taking on many endeavours at once. Manual labour is probably appealing to you and you may not have a preference in which hand you use with more skill. For you communication is done not only orally but also through hand gestures. This placement can bestow an aptitude for science or mathematics. However, a quick brain tends to facilitate a quick mouth too, and it would do you well to watch yours. Administering some diplomacy and thinking ahead before blurting out your first thought would also be beneficial for you, as you can be quite blunt. You enjoy friendly teasing and convey many of your jests via sarcastic remarks. You communicate your views forcefully and directly, in a straightforward, no-nonsense approach. You enjoy leading others and converse easily and extensively with others, even if you havent a clue about what you are discussing. You also like to find the faults in other peoples debates. Your assertive communication can at times rub others the wrong way as you often say too much, too powerfully. Due to your strong communication, you would do well working in sales or law. You can be very persuasive because of your powerful communication style. Try your hand at writing critique or dark comedy, as you may find a hidden gift. You tend to be self-sufficient, dedicated, brave, energetic, and love challenging your mind. However, make sure to take a moment to reflect on what you wish to say before you say it, as you can easily hurt others through your tactless mocking.
There is intensity in every aspect of your life from your emotions and wants, to your romantic partnerships, with many of them being full of passion, instability, and heartbreak. You have a great personal magnetism that pulls others in. There is a tendency towards obsessing over people and partnerships. In your relationships, you may take turns trying to possess one another, each person controlling as much of the situation as they can until the other has had enough and tries to turn the tables. You can be jealous and also try to manipulate others, whether you do this behind the scenes or in a more overt manner. There is not much you will not do in order to maintain your power over people and the situation at hand. Your intense emotions can create such a strong pull within you that you find yourself acting in ways that are irrational. Evetually your emotions reach a peak and you need to remove yourself completely from the people in your life and the situations that you are in, and start anew. You are not the most open-minded person and can be very stubborn in your viewpoints, throwing them at others aggressively, often disregarding new concepts that others are trying to convey to you, and always insisting that your opinions are correct. You remember every slight, perceived or otherwise, that someone has done towards you. Work on your perception and you might find that people are different than you originally thought. Your feelings are so overwhelming sometimes that you are unable to reign them in. Finances can be an obsession for you as you need to feel secure. The biggest lesson for you in this placement is to temper the emotional chaos within. You have a deeply rooted sense of rejection and feeling as though you are somehow unworthy, and this makes it hard for you to believe that the people you care for are to be trusted. This aspect will test your romantic partnerships to help you grow as a person and show you how to truly have faith in the people you are bonded to.
Emotionally you are fully charged and this intensity may have a negative impact on your health physically. Try to pace yourself and start to do one thing at time. It is not always easy to share living quarters with you as you often lack patience, become easily agitated with others, and behave in a grouchy manner. It is almost as though you go LOOKING for arguments. A bit like a spoiled child, if you do not get your way, you show your displeasure with fits of rebellious resistance. It would be beneficial for you to keep physically active and disperse the enormous amount of restlessness within you. You are naturally assertive and spirited, easily fighting for the things that you believe in or for others that are being taken advantage of. However, you must develop self-restraint if you are to reach your full potential. Competition spurs you on and you are driven to beat out all others in the game of your choosing or even just in general. Sometimes attracting with honey is far more conducive to accomplishing your goals than using brute force; be more diplomatic when interacting with people. You work diligently, bravely, and energetically. Try to be more lenient on yourself and others when something goes array as no one is perfect, not even you. Sometimes you have built up such a name for yourself that you do a complete turn-around and laze about, expecting your previous work will tide you over. Your anger may be explosive at times, especially when you are wounded on an emotional level, and you must find a way to restrain yourself. Try to think through your feelings before they take over. Your general lack of patience and constant rushing about makes you susceptible to accidental injuries, particularly involving heat or sharp objects. You can be reckless because you do not plan your actions ahead. You have a negative reaction to any sort of perceived restriction on you and can be a bit of a rule-breaker. As a leader, it is imperative that you curb your dominance or you will be seen as a tyrannical dictator rather than a leader. Vengeful thoughts are not healthy for you and you need to release your anger towards others for their offenses. It is likely that you will be wasteful with your financial resources and can be prone to dishonesty.
This placement will have a strong influence, for better or worse. If you have set your sights on something, you become almost obsessed with it and will do anything in order to acquiring your goal. It would be best if you were able to accomplish these things in a way that would be considerate towards others, however this is not always the case and you can stomp all over other peoples emotions if they happen to be in the way of what you want. When a concept takes hold of you, you have tunnel-vision and call forth a great amount of energy to that particular notion. This energy allows you to either positively reconstruct or go to the other end, and destroy; you must channel these vibrations in beneficial ways or they can be harmful to you or those around you. You have a strong will-power and tenacity that knows no bounds. You are able to persevere through even the most trying circumstances, things that would make other people wither away, yet you survive them. When you are leading others, remember that the majority of people are unable to call forth such power and temper your expectations accordingly. Otherwise, you can turn into a tyrannical dictator, cruel and callous.
At times when you are pursuing your ambitions, you become enthralled in achieving your desire and lose sight of anything else, lacking in objective reasoning. In these situations, nothing and nobody will be able to dissuade you. Arrogance can be a problem for you as you believe that your reasoning, conclusions, and actions are always correct. You would do well to keep in mind that it is easier to attract with honey than with force; develop a more humble approach and you will find the doors opening to you.
You can be power-hungry, striving to manage everything you come across, including the individuals in your life. Your controlling tendencies can make others feel as though they are your servants. Instead of diplomatically finding a smooth path to your goals, you bulldoze your way through. If only you can understand that there are better methods to acquire the things you desire, you will achieve great feats. You may be hardnosed and merciless when striving for your aims. You are able to call forth an extreme amount of drive and momentum, sparing no cost to succeed in your decided endeavour. This can create a person that becomes consumed with work, never resting until they get to where they want to be.
You are an expert at subtly controlling people through manipulation. Very perceptive, it is almost second nature to you. However, be careful as what you put out into the world will come back to you. You have a talent for investigation and you do not miss much, quickly and accurately reading others and the circumstances you find yourself in. It may be difficult for you to convey your more tender feelings towards people and you can take life rather seriously. One of the best aspects in this placement is that you are very realistic, accepting what life gives you without idealistic dreaming.
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 are vibrant, innovative, unique, quick-witted, observant, anxious, self-sufficient, wild, hasty, and possess good mechanical skills. Others may need to watch out when you become angry as this can happen rather suddenly and the process can destroy everything around you. Inwardly you have a craving towards reforming old traditions whether or not these changes will be beneficial; you have a rebellious nature. There is a restlessness within you that causes you to be always on the move, looking for new adventures. Dangerous situations and risky ventures do not deter you and you may find these even more exciting for being so. Often you are impatient and insist that you have your way the moment you decide on something. Many times you will follow your own course without thought to how it may affect anyone or anything else. Others may view you as selfish and arrogant. You have a tough time sticking to any course long-term as you are unsure what it is that you are actually trying to accomplish.
Working as a team is difficult for you though it would be highly beneficial for you to develop a way to compromise with others. You communicate your wishes directly and perhaps at times bluntly; others are usually aware where they stand with you and what you are looking for. You require a great deal of independence to be able to do things as you see fit and if things do not go the way you envisioned, you can burst forth with anger; working for yourself or in solitude is probably best for you. This placement insists that you develop a way to be patient with others and if you refuse to, fate will throw you into circumstances that will force your hand. Volatile situations, and people, are drawn to you so as to show you how to manoeuvre in them. Trust in your intuition as it is particularly strong and usually accurate. You are prone to accidental injuries and mistakes due to your inability to pace yourself, always rushing ahead without thinking; try to come with a tentative plan in the least. This is the lesson you are required to learn with this placement, in addition to developing discipline and self-restraint.
You possess a talent for leadership in aiding others to improve their situation, whether this be their living situation or their spiritual one. You are highly moral by nature and this draws people to you. Coordinating others comes easily to you as does strategy. It is likely that you will transform any group that you lead. Your past life bestowed you with acceptance towards others beliefs and values, you are humble in your approach. You quickly decipher what is morally correct and what is not, lending to an ability to thoroughly comprehend when a transformation is in order. You find pleasure assisting in the task of attaining important aspirations, yours or someone elses. Insightful and giving, you have a gift for seeing to the truth of the matter and read people and circumstances accurately and swiftly. You are also particularly empathetic towards others and the troubles they encounter.
You are giving, caring, charitable, and would readily share whatever assets you might have. For the people you care for, you would quickly extend both yourself and the material items in your possession, however you will usually only do so if it isnt too much trouble for you. A luxurious, stylish, relaxing environment is essential to you and you refuse to do any manual labour. Your charismatic, pleasant, polite demeanour is perfect for hosting company. Good karma from a past life assures you luck with your finances and acquiring assets. There is an inclination towards indulging yourself extravagantly and behaving in a lazy manner; try to curb these habits. At times, life fulfils your needs and desires with so little effort on your part that you may not value what you are given. With regards to your health, you are susceptible to putting on weight due to your liking of tasty food and drink. You are a tender-hearted, out-going, friendly type who avoids conflict and enjoys exploring beautiful, distance lands. It would be most beneficial for you to learn to appreciate what you have and to stick things out even when they are difficult sometimes.
You like to keep your feelings under a tight reign. This placement helps to balance your feelings even when circumstances are difficult. Others may be frantic during these times, yet you remain calm and collected. You are reasonable and unbiased during stressful situations which help you to solve the underlying issue amidst emotional chaos. This placement allows you to concentrate more effectively. You do not skirt your duties and people know they can rely on you to do what you have committed to doing. You are loyal to those in your circle and to the people you feel close to, supporting them behind the scenes. You dislike being idle and enjoy watching the fruit of your labour. Mentally you tend to stick to the conservative route, letting tradition guide you. Frivolous thoughts for the sake of fun are not really your cup of tea; you take a more sombre approach. However, you are not always able to show your feelings towards those you care for. It would be beneficial if you could develop a more open manner and convey these inner emotions outwardly to them somehow. You are independent and methodical, as well as having a good ability to organise, handle money and business, and behave diplomatically when interacting with people. You are very patient and willing to persevere until you have reached your goal. You are ethical, dutiful, faithful, and fair.
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.
You may express yourself in an eloquent and clever manner, but you tend to keep to shallow waters, never venturing into the deeper emotions that some may be fond of. You are also not likely to stick with anything for very long, have trouble remembering things, and do not have a stable pattern of thought. You are indecisive, anxious, and prone to overthinking. Your high-strung nature can rub people the wrong way at times. You enjoy talking about people when they are not around and can spin a story to better suit your needs at the moment. You are interested in where others have been, how they feel, what they think, and why. You listen to them and people naturally divulge their private thoughts to you when they may not be so open with someone else. Previous experiences are particularly fascinating to you. Historical events in both your life and the lives of others are important to you and you readily share and listen to these tales. Archaeological or genealogical topics draw you in, as well as anything pertaining to myths. You feel almost as though you are reliving these experiences yourself.
You must find equilibrium between your mental state and your emotional state as you tend to swing wildly from one to the other. Your thinking is sharp but unfortunately so is your tongue, and this creates hurt where there did not need to be any. Try to think before you speak and form your words in a more diplomatic fashion. Use both your logical thinking with your sensitive emotions. Your nervousness and inner tension can create frustration for you internally that you often take out on others. You crave genuine care and understanding.
Chances to succeed tend to appear in your life unexpectedly and can be of an uncommon variety. You have many interesting ambitions and are rather unusual yourself. People often perceive you as advanced in your thinking. Others enjoy your pleasant demeanour as you tend to keep positive and have a hearty sense of humour. Mentally you are innovative and unique, portraying an open-minded, accepting, kind, charitable character. You may be interested in mystical studies or scientific endeavours. Always willing to lend a helping hand when needed, you are friendly, outgoing, welcoming, caring, and tender. You are not greedy with what belongs to you, rather you share readily when need be. Learning and experiencing new things is important to you, therefore you surround yourself with eccentric individuals that will often teach you what you would have never encountered otherwise. Curiosity keeps you asking about the ins and outs of everything you come across, producing many fresh concepts for you to dissect. It is unlikely that you will stay in one place for very long as you prefer to be discovering new places instead of settling into them. You despise doing the same monotonous duties day in and day out and you require variety in your life; being obligated to perform these sorts of tasks can have a negative impact on you. It is pertinent that you are free of restrictions as commitments tend to scare you; you are uncertain if you will be able to abide by them and do not wish to let others down, so you usually steer clear. You may inherit finances in unusual and spontaneous ways. There is a positive past life karma that signifies you will be blessed spiritually and watched over.
Creativity comes easily to you and you are most successful at reaching your aims when those you care for are there to encourage you. You are able to find a perfect balance between independence and connecting with others. You are self-sufficient, doing just fine alone whenever needed. Previous lives were used to master your emotional reactions and they are now harmonious. Good karma draws good fortune to you in all aspects: status, home-life, friendship, respect, healthiness, and monetary assets. Naturally capable and talented, you soar to the top either by gaining the respect and admiration of those in high places who will aid you on your journey, or you yourself find an area of expertise where you create your own success. Both the external and internal forces at work for you are blended harmoniously, making your life a bit easier than it could otherwise be. All of your challenges are aided by this aspect and despite the obstacles, you will find tranquillity.
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.
Cancers do not enjoy approaching situations in a straight line, but rather prefer moving indirectly (learn about compatibility with Cancer here). They feel more comfortable when they can come towards something from a hidden angle and may take their time expressing themselves. However, their emotionality is anything but slow and steady. They are prone to dramatically intense emotional reactions as their mood seems to blow with the wind. The people closest to them are likely to feel confused by the speed at which they change from cheerful to melancholic to angry.
Typically a Cancer is diligent, friendly, empathetic, determined, protecting, and frugal, as well as quarrelsome, emotionally delicate, moody, instinctive, possibly even psychic, with a tendency to sacrifice themselves for others.
A Cancer will tend to react emotionally rather than mentally. They need to be in harmonious environments as they will easily soak up the energies of those around them. Due to their sensitive emotional natures, it is likely that they consistently try to elicit responses of kindness, caring, and empathy from others; they crave regular emotional reassurance. They can be a bit of a homebody as the home, and those in it, are a sanctuary for them. Their ties to those closest to them are so important that they often become co-dependent on their loved ones, needing to spend as much time with them as possible and the loved ones may begin to feel suffocated, requiring their own space.
Cancers are naturally inconsistent in their emotions and therefore can easily alter their views, thoughts, decisions, and the like. However, they have less energy than the average person and will tend towards doing things a bit more slowly in general. Exercise is usually something they must force themselves to do as they do not usually enjoy it for its own merit. Unfortunately, this adds to a problem with weight gain as they age. A Cancer may increase their physical activity by utilising their strong emotional nature; channelling their intensity correctly can indeed create much needed get up and go for these personalities.
Cancers remember a great deal more than most and this tied with their emotional sentimentality causes them to often sit around daydreaming about the past and what once was. However, this also manifests as hording and clinging to their belongings, unable to throw anything out as if this would somehow mean they are throwing away a piece of their past.
Family is extremely important to a Cancer and they will work very hard to provide comfort and security for those they love. They may travel at times but will always return to their home base and those closest to them. Home is home, and they will not go too long without checking in.
Traditional and often conventional, though they find themselves over-thinking and focusing too much on possible difficulties in the future. Often they deal with these worries internally and may develop problems with the lining of their stomach from the stress. They instinctively feel that they are always one step away from danger and may be extra cautious because of it, paying attention to the situation around them in a suspicious manner. It would be most beneficial for them to develop a way to curb their emotional reactions.
Emotionally delicate, careful, and possibly reserved about opening up to others. You find it difficult to convey the way you feel to others, even those that you may have strong feelings for. On the outside, you prefer to show your cerebral side. You are more likely to show your affections by doing acts of kindness for the person, rather than directly stating them, and outward romanticism isnt your style. Being the recipient of grand gestures of affection is also uncomfortable for you as you either feel unworthy or as if the person is not being genuine. Due to your discomfort with displays of warmth and affection, others will tend to view you as more cold and reserved than you may feel inside. It is also possible that your high standards push people away and it would be beneficial to you to develop tolerance and appreciation towards others even if they are not infallible; try to be lenient with your own mistakes as well. Your insistence that things be always perfect may be the cause of much unhappiness for you. You are often diligent, dependable, cautious, intuitive, realistic, and sensible; this is especially true in regards to your feelings. Practicality, precision, and intelligence are likely to play a large role in your life. You have a gift of being able to size up a situation and quickly determine the most effective way to get the job done. This ability allows you to do well in a caretaking or administrator role. Be mindful not to become too exacting and demanding over the little things. You enjoy aiding people, though you are often unable to comprehend their deeper emotional needs. It is important for you to learn to be more accepting as this will allow you to better assist others.
Your mind is very flexible, lively, dynamic, alert, inquisitive, and multi-talented. You absorb information from anything you come across, especially by way of written or spoken communication or through experiencing new cultures, exploring distant lands, or meeting new people. Unfortunately, you are likely to suffer from great internal tension and anxiousness that must be expended; establishing an exercise routine will help you to counter this energy. You are quick-witted and effortlessly respond with clever retort or humorous jest. You prefer doing more than one thing at a time and may try to swallow more than you can chew. Boredom can be a problem for you as you are able to comprehend even complex matters at lightning speed; once you have understood something, it is difficult to hold your attention further. A jack-of-all-trades, you possess titbits of information on a variety of different subjects, yet cannot hold your focus long enough to master any of them. You enjoy working with your hands and may not have a dominant hand preference; perhaps try playing the drums, you may find it comes easily to you. Engaging in verbal competitions of all sorts interests you. You need to watch out for a tendency towards being trivial, shallow, and insincere with others. In order to achieve success, you must learn to steady your mind and discipline your actions. Make sure to stick through with the endeavours you begin. Careers that deal with communication, articulation, persuasion, or the written or spoken word would be well suited for you, as would working in a field where you are able to change your scenery on a regular basis, perhaps traveling. Without constant variety, you are likely to quickly grow bored of the situation and therefore have a tendency to switching careers or living quarters regularly. Try to develop tolerance for those that are unable to comprehend intricate matters as easily as you do.
When choosing a romantic partner, you are more moved by intelligence than mere looks. You prefer someone who is an intellectual, inquisitive, clever, witty, and communicates well. Because you can lose interest quickly, you require a partner that will stimulate your mind and possibly even provide some sort of obstacle for you to untangle. You enjoy always having something exciting going on in your relationships; the more you can learn and experience, the better. Communicating, exchanging ideas, going on random adventures, and socialising with your companion are essential to your happiness in a partnership. However, you have a charming personality and are naturally flirtatious with others which can create problems if you are with a partner that tends to be more possessive and envious; these sorts of behaviours usually do not bode well with you. It is best if you are allowed freedom to interact with new people in your naturally out-going, charismatic, lively fashion. Be mindful not to break too many hearts on your way to finding the right partner, as you can tend to easily change your mind about a person quite suddenly or date multiple people at once. Commitment is difficult for you to invest in and you often enjoy the thrilling excitement of the early stages of romance more than the later stages. You are gifted in articulating yourself in all forms; writing, speaking, singing, and the like. You tend to remove yourself from your emotions and objectively analyse your feelings. If Venus is negatively aspected, you may have trouble with your lungs or the oxygen in your system.
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.
The current state of human affairs is likely to mean a great deal to you. You feel we are all tied together and should collaborate for a better future. It is likely that you will become involved in many projects where you are working with a large team of people, as you believe this will help you to grow as a person. Due to your innovative ideas, great common sense, sociability, and intellectual pursuits you are able to coordinate with almost anyone. You are friendly and accepting with strong intuition. You are easily able to manage large groups of people harmoniously due to your diplomatic talents; human relations in business may be appealing to you.
You are driven, disciplined, and orderly. While working, you can be very diligent, effective, and willing to wait as long as is necessary to reach your goals. Being dependable is important to you and you are likely to take a more serious approach to life in general. Instinctively you comprehend that everything worth having requires a sacrifice and that pleasure can be overrated. However, work-life balance may be a particular challenge for you. You easily comprehend abstract ideas and are able to convey them in a way that is understandable to others. It is possible that you may become a workaholic as a result of feeling desperately alone or as though you are not good enough somehow. Status and success may be so valuable to you that you sacrifice more than you should in order to try to attain them. It would be beneficial for you to curb your power-hungry tendencies as they cause you to think only of yourself.
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 aspire to obtain power through material gains and your natural talents, as it is important for you to be highly regarded and worthy of respect. Motivated and giving, yet you can be prone to excessive spending and in turn may find yourself being domineering or controlling with your possessions, and sometimes with others as well. You may also harbour feelings of being unloved or unworthy, if an aspect is afflicted with the Sun.
You tend to be rather emotional in your romantic involvements, as well as your involvements with children. In fact, all situations where children are present are emphasised. Though quite charming, you can be moody and fickle in your romantic relationships. Your craving to be loved and needed by another person may need to be tempered. You are likely to place too high a significance on enjoying yourself and being showered with attention from others. It is important to you to be able to express your emotional state at all times and to find pleasing circumstances. Your constant mood swings may stifle your creative pursuits. In a career, you are often drawn to teaching positions involving children or some sort of theatrical endeavour where your creativity may come forward. In either case, situations in your life tend to be dramatic.
Born with a natural thirst for knowledge, you are interested to know a little bit about everything. You are inquisitive and clever, having a talent for witty, eloquent communication in all forms and always enthusiastic to converse about your array of varied interests with others. A high-strung personality may help keep you slim, but you must watch out for nervous disorders as your nervous system is highly sensitive. Luckily, you are also very adaptable which may help reduce your anxiety.
This placement is a rather fortunate one for interpersonal relationships of all sorts. People are irresistibly drawn to your pleasant and charismatic personality. You possess a natural talent in knowing exactly how to get what you most want in life, and from others. Youre gifted with an intuitive sense of just what needs to be said and done, and you will instinctively apply it even if this means stretching the truth a bit. At times you can be spoiled and self-serving and therefore need to be careful not to use your talents to manipulate others to your benefit, as you have an unfair advantage in this area. Venus in the 1st house also allows you to have a strong appreciation for all things beautiful and you tend to seek out lavish comforts.
You encompass a natural exuberance of physical energy. This vitality can sometimes become so intense that you engage in rash, reckless behaviour when you should be exercising caution. Having such a strong mars placement bestows you with confidence and an assertive attitude towards life. You are rather self-sufficient with a good aptitude for organizing, though you can have trouble with patience at times. Take care to watch for accidents, especially around the head region as you are particularly prone to facial wounds and high fevers.
Happy-go-lucky, generous to others and possessing an open mind, you can be inspirational to others. Others often follow you as you easily predict how circumstances will turn out due to your strong intuition and accurate judgement; people want to support your new concepts and endeavours. Philosophy and religion are of particular interest to you, and you are likely to profit from travelling and foreign situations. You may also be drawn to law, justice, or political concerns. You are more apt to find success later in life, rather than in your youth. In addition, your beliefs may be rather fixed or you may find that you lack something to believe in.
Your philosophical views tend to be rather conventional and you feel strongly about them. So much so, that you may criticise the beliefs of others. You find it easy to concentrate on in-depth topics and tend to question religion and the existence or role of a higher power. Travel adventures often do not go according to plan, with many interruptions and challenges along the way. Dealing with foreign cultures may also prove irritating to you, though try not to concentrate on these difficulties too much and learn to reserve your energy.
A traditional partner is not for you, as you prefer someone a bit more eccentric and unusual. Neither you nor your romantic partners want to walk on the same path as the general public, but rather create your own. It is likely that you or your partner enjoy surprising others with your unconventional preferences. Personal independence is an important factor in your relationship, and commitments may feel unnecessary to you. You may even seek out partners who are unavailable as these romantic involvements promise no commitment from the start.
Due to the unconventional nature characteristic to most of your relationships, your partnerships may baffle both yourself and others. Unique yet fascinating people tend to surround you.
It is unwise for you or your partner to attempt to dominate one another, as this will only cause problems. Try to find a balance between your independence and the time you and your partner spend with one another; you may both require much space for a relationship to work. Easily feeling trapped by any restrictions stemming from your partnership, you must be given a great deal of room to grow. Without this freedom, you may quickly and suddenly opt out of the partnership. Long-distance relationships may appeal to you, as this sort of partnership has a more relaxed feel to it and you may continue to live your life as you please.
Mental stimulation is an important quality that you desire from your partner, as you like a challenge. You also prefer that information is readily exchanged between you and your partner. You are most interested in an original individual who can be artistic, sociable, and not afraid to go against the crowd. An intelligent, eccentric wild child with a great deal of charm may be just your ticket.
It may be easier for you to engage in platonic relationships than something as involved as marriage, though when you do decide to settle down, you expect an idealistic partnership where you and your significant other are good friends. In fact, friendship is probably how you found your mate. However, this placement denotes an inclination towards frivolous affairs that provide a short-lived thrill but will cause conflict with your significant other.
One of the greatest challenges in your partnerships happens when personal growth occurs at a greater pace in one partner than in the other. This growth may be so extreme that the person that entered the marriage originally no longer exists.
In order to succeed in your relationship, both parties must allow one another to be independent beings and be supportive of each others need for space.
Very imaginative with sensitive cognitive abilities that are almost mystical; your intuition is highly accurate and helps you to explore what you are naturally gifted at doing. You appreciate beauty more than most and tend to dream with intensity. Money is not much of a concern for you and you may find the topic of funds to be puzzling. 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.
Although your emotions may be rather sensitive, inside there is a powerhouse of strong will that allows you to fight for the things that are important to you. You can be overbearing at times and may try to use this energy to control others; you are capable of profound anger when the situation calls for it. Your internal strength comes from an intense emotionality and if harnessed correctly, you possess healing abilities that can both transform and regenerate. Others are pulled in by your magnetism, although you may be a bit of an enigma to them, causing you to spend a good deal of your time alone. Independent and courageous, you can sometimes find yourself brooding over trivial matters that may at times be imagined and would be best forgotten. Try to be more adaptable and forgive others their affronts.
