If the planets symbolize the forces and energies that happen in different situations, then the aspects between the planets symbolize how these energies work together and integrate with each other. There are challenging and easy aspects between the planets and it is up to the individual to choose how they are going to utilize the aspect energies for a positive outcome. The aspects between planets are said to speak to each other. Depending on which planets are aspecting each other and the rest of the natal chart, will determine which planet is dominate and which is not in the aspect between them. But ultimately it is up to the individual to decide how they are going to use the aspects of planets in their chart with their free will, in a meaningful and productive way.
Your maturity is apparent right away, as you tend to take life very seriously. Acting responsibility and doing the things that are required of you are high priorities in your mind. You are able to apply your self-restraint and discipline to achieve any goal you choose. You are an excellent organiser and have good managerial skills, understanding just what needs to happen for things to progress properly. Trivial, fanciful endeavours are of little interest to you as you are more concerned with what can be achieved through working diligently. Your sombre demeanour may cause others to falsely assume that you have no feelings or do not care. It is challenging for you to express the more delicate emotions that you keep buried deep down. Failing scares you and therefore you do whatever you can to succeed. It is usual for you to feel depressed, however you generally pay this no mind and continue working and pushing forward. Loneliness can also be a problem for you as you believe that only you are able to complete a task the correct way. An independent life fits you and you do not resent the circumstances you have been placed in as you know there is always a way to sink lower. You are extremely motivated to succeed, perhaps too much so. You possess a great deal of patience and this is a good thing because your climb to the top is going to be slow-moving; luckily you are able to persevere. There is a tendency towards being a bit harsh and critical, particularly in regards to your own efforts. Reserved by nature, you prefer to use caution rather than letting loose. Expressing your feelings or displaying warmth towards loved ones makes you feel uneasy and you would rather keep a tight rein; you may be a bit timid at times. You are not one to break a rule as you truly comprehend the reasoning behind it and this can make you a rather strict authority figure.
You combine cleverness and craftiness in order to get the most you can out of others so as to benefit yourself. You are mentally attentive, sharp, and enjoy a good verbal sparring match. At times you can speak too quickly or bluntly, and would do well to slow down a bit. You also tend to take out revenge on others by verbally cutting them down. When you become angry these attacks can become particularly explosive, involving insults and intense rants. Your assertive communication insists that others come around to share your viewpoints, though you are unlikely to be open theirs. It is important for you to develop self-control and a way to express your desires in a reasonable fashion, rather than letting them run away with you. If you are able to redirect the tension you feel inside into creative endeavours, you will save yourself lots of trouble with other people as you are prone to starting fights when tension builds up within you. You often criticise those closest to you when you are in a bad mood and this habit may burn many bridges. Most conversations quickly turn into arguments with you and it would be a good idea to go into a career where this personality trait is an asset rather than a hindrance, for instance as a human/animal rights activist, upholding the law, or possibly where a no-holds-barred critique is required. Reading appeals to you and it is likely that you are skilled in written communication or creative writing.
It is difficult for you to contain your high energy long enough for you to calmly stay in one place and you will instead fidget around until you are actively engaged in something. This lends to you preferring to work on a variety of different endeavours at once as you lose interest quickly otherwise, though you rarely see any of these projects through to completion. However, it is important that you allow yourself a chance to relax and unwind or you will wear yourself out mentally. When pressure within you reaches a pique you will explode outwardly, often without reason. Logic is difficult for you to find when you are angry, your thoughts tend to be muddled during this time, and you are not able to rationally convey why you are feeling such rage. Your nervousness can make you susceptible to physical ailments that are usually associated with stress; make a conscious effort to relax every day and try not to take on more work than you can realistically handle. Your volatile temper can also create trouble with your heart. Often you go about each day in a busy manner, speeding about though getting very little done. Learn to pace yourself.
Inwardly intense, you possess a strong will and a passionate spirit. You insist on knowing the secrets of others though you will tend to keep your deepest emotions, wants, and intentions to yourself. Working out of the limelight suits you as you prefer to work alone, without anyone meddling in your business. You have a tendency towards envious, possessive behaviour that can become obsessive and you may treat others as objects to be controlled; you like things to go YOUR way. You crave to be acknowledged for your skills and wish to be respected as an expert in your field. You admire powerful leaders who exude a charismatic and magnetic presence and you try to emanate their persona. It is important for you to learn to allow others to guide you as you can be stubborn, insisting that you do everything your way, however this only stifles your development. Fate tries to force you to learn these lessons by putting people in your life that will reflect your damaging behaviours towards you. The more you insist on sticking to your old ways, the more intense these lessons will become.
You are extremely confident, believing that you are never wrong. Others feel intimidated by you and may attack you before you can do them any damage. You have an obsession with death and the unknown. You enjoy creating though are never happy with the things you create, always reconstructing them or throwing them out entirely. Manipulation comes easily to you and you are quite skilled at asserting your control over others in a way where they are none the wiser. You truly believe in yourself and your talents, feeling certain that you can handle whatever challenges you encounter in life. You know you have the ability to overcome whatever trouble lies ahead and will even conquer your own inner demons if need be. Inside, you are a force to be reckoned with and are exceptionally strong, persevering, and resourceful. Those who skirt their responsibilities, do not stand up for themselves, or evade their troubles will never gain your respect and you think very little of them. Highly intuitive, you are perceptive in discovering the truth about the situation at hand.
Try to be lenient with others, as not everyone can be as strong-willed as you. Allow people to do as they may, rather than trying to control their lives. Transform your own negative qualities before trying to change others. Do not abuse the power that you have or karma will see you pay for it in the end. Keep in mind that you get back what you put in.
You are very imaginative and visual, with a great ability to think outside of the box when an issue needs solving. However when you do look for resolutions, you tend to take the route that will avoid confrontations, instead opting for ways that will keep harmony. You are a humanitarian and enjoy aiding those who may not have been blessed with many opportunities; helping others in this way is deeply spiritually fulfilling for you. There is a talent here for dramatization, especially in the arts. In order to balance your mental and emotional states, it would help you to engage in this artistic talent and direct your energy productively. This outlet can also help you to keep your feet on the ground, rather than allowing your mind to run off into a land of fantasy. Turning fantasy into something tangible can happen for you due to your sensible nature; you couple idealism with practicality. Spiritual mysticism appeals to you and you may find yourself dabbling in the subject when opportunity presents itself. Others are drawn to your magnetic essence, particularly people who require aid of some sort. You can assert yourself when needed, though you do this in a tolerant, accepting, and caring way. Good past life karma bestows safety from secret adversaries who are intending to harm you. Innately you understand that if you continue working patiently and diligently, you will acquire what you are after. Sympathetic and sensitive to others suffering, you truly care for any living creature, human or otherwise, though you must be mindful not to allow others to take advantage of you by way of conjuring up a sad tale just to play on your sentiments. Being around water will soothe your mind and spirit, and therefore you should strive to be near water as often as possible.
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.
Resilience, dedication, perseverance, and working hard allow you to achieve challenging feats. You are able to sync idealistic characteristics with realism. The challenges you encounter allow you to demonstrate your endurance when circumstances get particularly difficult; a great deal of spiritual development is likely to arise due to these difficulties. Different, unconventional, uncommon, and maybe even odd matters will attract your motivations. Rather unique individuals are thrust into your world in order to allow you opportunities to learn and expand your consciousness. You are capable of finding equilibrium between your need for independence and your obligations, enabling you to achieve incredible acts. You are detail-oriented and have a knack for organising which contribute to your success and allow you to aid others. There is an abundance of internal tension that may need to be minded as this can have a negative effect on your physical health; find a way to unwind and reduce your stress levels.
You are emotionally intense and when you love someone, you love them with your all. Your powerful passions will either magnetically draw others to you or frighten them away. You have a great deal of charm and a way of attracting others to you almost without effort. This influence you have over others can cause you to easily use manipulation tactics, even if these actions are often subconscious. This placement allows you to either change your beliefs into something more beneficial to you, or to aid other people in changing their beliefs. You are likely to be creative and strive to promote a beautiful, peaceful, and comfortable environment. Your perception and compassion for others causes you to reach out and help people in whatever way you can.
This placement allows for range of different outcomes. It is possible that you will have a partnership with a person that is interested in subjects that you either are disinterested in or have never experienced. Another option is that you are devoted to a project or foundation that irks those closest to you. It is also possible that you will waste your resources or appear pompous. A tendency to over-indulge in sensuous pleasures, especially fine food and drink, can create challenges in your health. Be mindful of your weight and of any issues with your circulatory system. Life will easily bestow you with the things you need and this causes you to be unappreciative of them, as well as lazy. This placement attempts to teach you to find equilibrium between the possessions you desire and spiritual idealism. The beliefs you hold will likely be challenged and you may need to rethink your values. Emotionally dramatic, you can be prone to leaping into love without looking carefully first. Your amorous emotions may be drawn in by material assets or prestige.
However, despite the troubles you encounter, you are generally a warm, giving individual that will always be there to lend a helping a hand to those that require it. You withhold judgement when helping others and people are instinctively aware of this. A harmonious environment is important to you and therefore you would prefer to be accepting of the flaws found in others rather than create tension. Nonetheless, you must be careful not to skirt important issues just to evade conflict or keep from hurting others emotionally; some things need to be said. Work on your assertiveness in order to make sure you are taken care of and respected. Out-going and social, you strongly prefer the company of others to being alone, as spending too much time on your own makes you feel uneasy. You are able to be diplomatic while remaining popular. Developing self-discipline will be beneficial for you.
The pathway towards achieving your goals may be obstructed and there is also issue with asserting power. It seems that something always stands in the way of what you are trying to accomplish. It would be wise to evaluate the reasoning behind your actions. Are these actions done for selfish reasons alone, or do they have a benefit for humanity as a whole? Competing with others allows you to learn how to better collaborate with people. Much wisdom can be attained with this placement, however it is imperative that you act selflessly.
Karma from a past life insists that you listen to the opposing views of others openly in this life, as you had acted in a controlling, commanding manner previously. If you insist on holding to your own opinions rigidly, your conditions will only worsen. Great power comes with great responsibilitythis responsibility is to ensure others well-being, not only your own. Those who need to learn this are often placed in powerful roles so that they may do so. Be humble, keep striving, and develop your patience.
You can be very innovative though you must develop a way to adapt. You prefer things to stay the same, with the same routine, and this desire prompts you to attempt controlling others in some way. This placement may create a great deal of tension for you emotionally, though you can use these challenges to better understand the meaning of life.
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.

Leos are typically regal, brave, loving, influential, giving, fun-loving, positive, motivated, faithful, and jovial (learn about compatibility with Leo here). Unfortunately, they can also be egotistical, narrow-minded, controlling, sluggish, demanding, and unaccepting of others. They prefer being engaged in activities that allow them to use their excellent organisational skills, artistic innovation, and managerial abilities. Leos can sometimes put on a tough façade, when deep down they are rather sensitive and vulnerable. If their significant other hurts them in a vulnerable state, they may suddenly shun the partner and behave in an ill fashion towards them.
Leos are often found with all eyes on them. They enjoy sharing tales and add a bit of pizzazz to their show; having fun is important to them. Though they would prefer to be kind-hearted, if they feel it is necessary to be heavy-handed, they will do so without hesitating. If they ever do behave in a mean manner, they will feel that it is only because they have the other persons best interest at heart.
Do not anger a Leo, as he will suddenly act as though he is the royal ruler of the land and you are his subject. They will need to show you their strength and bravado, but once the storm has passed, the lion will happily forget that there was ever an infraction.
When Leos are in optimal condition, they are caring, fun-loving, positive, and bring great joy to others. They can be very giving, though financial resources may be difficult for them to hang on to without them realising where the money has gone to.
Leos are usually healthy and can bounce back easily from physical setbacks. Be mindful towards fevers, as they can be prone to particularly high temperatures when sick. Usually optimistic, when sadness does hit them, it can hit hard. Luckily, they are quickly able to revert back to their cheerful selves. However, if they are suffering from a lost love, they can suffer deeply as heartbreak is the most difficult thing for a Leo to conquer. Heartbreak may lead to physical ailments of the heart.
A Leo must have a high regard for the person they marry, as otherwise the relationship with falter rather quickly. What matters most is that Leos know they are valued.
You prefer to filter your emotions through your mind and can come across as rather cool and emotionally reserved. Most people are unable to comprehend the way you handle your emotions and may come to believe that you are unfeeling. This placement bestows a stable emotional nature. You often feel secure when you are involved professionally with groups and engaging in team work. You are innovative, unique, and advanced in your thinking; you utilise these traits to benefit humanity. Your relationships with your relatives may be less significant to you than the ties you hold with your friends as it is likely that you feel more bonded to those in your life that you have CHOSEN. You require free reign in your connections with people and will take a step back from the relationship when others become too involved. A partner that is envious, domineering, and clingy will only push you away. You may find yourself involved with many partners as you tend to be curious. You have an aversion to the conservative and old-fashioned. You are naturally social and outgoing, advanced in your thinking, and self-sufficient. Your open-minded nature entices you to seek knowledge of all sorts. However, empathy and compassion is not a strong suit for you and you struggle to comprehend others on an emotional level. On occasion your inner tension will manifest as expressing unconventional or extreme viewpoints, only for their shock value. You may also be detached, unpredictable, unyielding, stiff, selfish, and defiant.
Your views are strongly held and you convey them with enthusiasm and flare. The things you believe in are important to your self-identity. You enjoy telling stories and communicate in a caring, engaging, charming, and capable manner; you are a great entertainer. Much of your showmanship is laced with dramaticism and you have signature flair when conveying your talents. You are decisive and artistically innovative; teaching may be an option for you. Confident in your cognitive abilities, others may find you arrogant at times. Try to be mindful of presenting yourself as more than you are, as well as being too fixed in your own exaggerated opinion of yourself; not every act of amusement needs to be praised. It would be best for you to try to be respected for your mental capabilities, rather than your purely entertaining, though perhaps shallow, endeavours. You would do well in politics, leading a team, public representative, or instructing others in some way.
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.
With incredible will-power and ability to focus on a goal completely, when you set your mind to something, you can accomplish anything. You have immense resolve and self-control and it is difficult to deter you when you have decided on a direction. If you are interested in something or have an objective in mind, you can become rather stubborn and are fascinated with the idea to such an extent that you think of little else. However, these directives of yours are usually kept to yourself; you do not like to give away too much in regards to what schemes you may be thinking up. You are intuitive, observant, diligent, dedicated, focused, with a great magnetism and an iron will. No one could ever say that you are shallow, as still waters run deep with you and an animalistic nature dwells inside. It would be beneficial for you to develop self-control regarding your cravings in all forms, for when left unchecked these urgent yearnings can lead to destruction. In romantic endeavours, you must allow your partner freedom and space as you have a tendency towards treating your significant other as though they are an object that only you have rights to; when your possessive nature eventually surfaces, your partner may feel suffocated or frightened by the intensity. You have a knack for understanding the way people work, as well as an ability to accurately interpret how someone may respond to any given circumstance. This can make it easy for you to use subtle tactics to achieve the outcome you desire; be mindful that you do not abuse this gift for your own personal benefit. You can be rather set on the way you want something to manifest, with a powerful internal assertiveness that people may feel but cannot quite vocalise. You have mastered the art of subtlety, both in expression and in perception, and others may have difficulty deciphering your true intentions. You prefer it this way as you do not like to take action overtly, but rather choose to remain hidden until you see the perfect moment to strike. Nonetheless, you are a powerful adversary when challenged. Be mindful of health issues regarding your colon.
You are cunning, quick-witted, and jovial. Experiencing other cultures and new places appeals to you as you are able to learn much from these endeavours. You may have a gift for learning to communicate in a different language. However, internally you possess an anxious tension that you try to counter by nervous banter, communicating excessively, or making commitments that you are unable to follow through on. Working in literature may appeal to you. You are innovative and able to comprehend abstract concepts, as well as enjoy applying your mind to mathematical subjects. You seek out situations that will challenge you and alter your perception or help you grow in knowledge or wisdom. Justice or religious practices may also draw your attention.
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.
