Birth Chart Interpretation for
August 29, 1958
INTRODUCTION: NATAL CHART
Astrology/astronomy is the oldest recorded science known to man. Much precious space has been given to recording the appearance, disappearance, and cyclical movements of the Sun, Moon, planets, and stars in early man’s tedious efforts to communicate his history AND his ideas to future generations. Sumerian cuneiform script on clay tablets dating back over 2,000 years BC had texts correlating time (calendars) to the heavenly bodies. Many tablets also displayed some of the same glyphs and characters that we use today in astrology, while others recorded the close correlation observed between earthly and celestial phenomena.
In the seventh century BC, Assyrian Astrologers became quite sophisticated in predicting eclipses and retrogradation of the planets by observing their movements against the background of the stars and constellations. These observations provided the earliest body of knowledge on which the study of both Astrology and Astronomy are based today. However, this was not the purpose of their observations. The astrologer’s responsibilities were to provide their priests and rulers with favorable and unfavorable times for religious and social activities, and for the affairs of state. As a result of their efforts, a considerable body of knowledge and astrological lore was accumulated and recorded.
Early man gazed at the planets and stars and discovered that their positions in the heavens and their distances from each other were constantly changing and that those changes formed patterns that were repeated and predictable. He observed that all of nature in his world was directly related to those changes. Confined as he was to a small patch of earth where even boundaries and limits were unknown, it is little wonder that he began to correlate the events in his own life with the cycles of the planets and the stars, and to seek to live in harmony with their changing patterns and with nature.
Today’s man, through the science of Astronomy, uses these same stars to guide him on his personal visits to some of these heavenly bodies. Astronomy also helps modern man to place his own stars (satellites) in the sky. Some of these provide forms of communication which would be as difficult for early man to believe and understand as it seems to be for some Astronomers and others to believe that the ORIGINAL planets can still communicate influences to man today. Since these influences affect only the feelings, and the individual does have free will to make his own decisions, Astrology cannot meet a “scientific test” of “repeated results under controlled conditions”. Neither can religion, for that matter, yet most people believe in some form of religion.
Astrologers have been observing correlations of “As Above, So Below” for centuries, resulting in a tremendous body of knowledge. They are constantly studying, comparing, defining, delineating, and recording these influences and their meanings. Today, sophisticated computers make these tasks easier and the information more reliable. Thanks to the diligence of the ancients for preserving the records and to the enormous capacity of computers to store and sort information, today’s Astrologer can cast a better chart and interpret it more accurately and completely than ever before.
The Natal Chart interpretations are found by computing the astrological data for the date, time, and place of your birth. Your chart is unique in its combination of planetary positions, aspects, and influences. There are literally thousands of variables in the natal chart alone, and each individual will usually have less than a hundred of these variables in his or her chart. We will print all of those which apply to your particular birth time and place, and they are what makes you the unique individual that you are. We try to present this information in such a way that you can recognize and interpret the “blueprint” of your own “Personality Profile.”
There will be Delineations that appear to absolutely contradict each other, and there will be some that you cannot believe applies to you at all. Please try to keep an open mind and read the Natal Report all the way through. We will address all these concerns, and more, on the last page.
Astrology is not “fatalism”. “What Is To Be” is not necessarily what WILL be. The individual always has free will to make his/her own choices. Your horoscope reveals the astrological imprints upon your personality at the time of your birth. It has been up to you to decide which influences to accept and which influences to challenge. Personal growth results from those choices. Read the interpretation of your Natal chart and look back on your life. Is this you? Was this you? We think you will be amazed!
Given below is some technical data that your astrological analysis is based on. This data is derived from the date, time, and place of your birth, and is unique in that it applies ONLY to YOU.

YOUR ASTROLOGICAL IDENTITY
The sign which the Sun was in when you were born tends to give you your astrological identity. How many times have you heard the question, “What sign are you”?.. How many times have you had people identify themselves with the statement: “I am a Leo, I am an Aries, I am a Pisces”, etc. . . . Many times for both questions, I am sure.
Practically everyone knows his or her own Sun-sign. You probably have also noticed that most people have heard some simplistic Sun-sign interpretations and they are likely to add, “I am a natural leader–I’m a Leo, you know”; or, “Of course I have a temper, I’m an Aries”; or, “Pisces people are naturally psychic”.
These generalities are sometimes accurate, but not all Leos are leaders, not all Arians have temper tantrums, nor, are all Pisceans especially psychic. Even when these simplistic statements are true, there are many more influences in the Sun-sign of each individual and many other astrological influences that affect that individual’s personality. If astrology were taken no farther than the Sun-sign, it would be telling us that we are like every other person who was born under our particular Sun-sign!
The Sun sign IS perhaps the most important SINGLE factor among the thousands of variables drawn from when setting up the horoscope. Through the sign it occupies at the time of your birth, it colors your personality so strongly that it usually can be recognized throughout your lifetime. It indicates the ways in which you express your basic energy potential and your creative drive to grow and develop as an individual. It is also one of the major factors from which you draw upon to develop your personal identity and self-worth.
You have only one Sun-sign, however, and even if it IS the most powerful of all the stellar bodies, its influences are modified by the house in which it is found and by its hemispheric location in the chart. Its relationship to the Natal Moon is also legendary and warrants special attention in the interpretation process. Even more modifications can be expected from the aspects of the Sun to the other planets and to the Ascendant and Midheaven, from what “Mode” and “Element” it is in, and by the house positions of the sign Leo, which is “ruled” by the Sun. When you take all these things into consideration you can certainly see that there is much, much more to your identity than your Sun-sign.
However, this popular interest in Sun-sign astrology does account for a proliferation of Sun-sign publications, and one can find Sun-sign interpretations and legends in literally hundreds of astrological books and magazines today.
In the following delineation of the Sun-sign in your chart, we have tried to include those influences that are most consistent in the interpretations of the ancients, the masters of astrology, and the teachers of astrology–as well as those of the many gifted researchers and newcomers in astrology today.
SUN IN VIRGO
The Sun is in Virgo from approximately August 23 through September 22. Keywords are discrimination, methodical, and service; key phrase is “I analyze”. The symbol of the sign is a virgin with bundles of grain in her hands, representing the wisdom harvested in the fields of experience. Virgo is ruled by the planet Mercury.
Llewellyn George wrote in about 1908: “In Virgo, the Sun makes the native modest, thoughtful, serious, contemplative and industrious with desire to refine the mind and acquire knowledge. Learns quickly, is philosophical, a good reasoner and usually has a good command of language. It gives good endurance, reserve force, quick recuperation and as a rule, Virgoans do not show their age. Quick-tempered but not a fighter as Virgo prefers arbitration. Loves order, beauty, art, and literature. Not easily discouraged or kept down, although somewhat given to worry. Is idealistic yet practical, frugal yet speculative, ingenious, careful, cautious and usually endowed with good forethought. Very active and seldom contented long at a time. Desires wealth but not able, as a rule, to acquire wealth easily. Interested in hygienics, diet and labor conditions.” (A to Z Horoscope Maker” Llewellyn Publications, 1974.)
Max Heindel in his book, “The Message of the Stars”, writes: “This is a combination of the solar, mercurial and Sixth house influences. It shows the successful middleman between the producer and consumer, subtle, extremely quick to see what will work to his advantage in the promotion of business, pleasant and sociable, agreeable to all from which he expects gain, but domineering to employees and fellow workers; a smooth talker but not necessarily insincere; he merely looks out for number one. The Sun in Virgo makes good chemists, nurses and doctors (not surgeons, but drug doctors); they are firm believers in medicine and lots of it.” (Rosicrucians, 1927.)
At heart, you are modest and humble, and you rarely strive to be in the limelight or in a position of power. You have a sharply analytical mind, a keen eye for detail, and you prefer to observe, dissect, and study life from a distance. Conscientious and conservative, you can be relied upon to be careful, efficient, and thorough in your work, and you take pride in doing a job well. What you may lack in self-confidence you often make up for in skill–developing expertise, technical knowledge, and competency in some specialized area. You are impressed by eloquent words, as in poetry and beautiful prose, and are likely to be unusually eloquent in your own manner of writing and speaking.
You are forever seeking knowledge, but the hub of your universe is work. You are careful, meticulous, and efficient in your work, paying a great deal of attention to detail. You have little patience with those who refuse to work, but you need to be conscious of your tendency to let your work become your whole life. However, you function at the height of your powers in careers that are related to service to mankind.
You like good food and are fond of comfort and good clothes. You have a good eye for fashion for yourself and others, and are a stickler for quality. You admire material progress but have difficulty accumulating large sums of money because you really like to spend it. However, you are likely to be materially comfortable.
You are also highly discriminating and may be especially particular about your diet, hygiene, and health habits. You have high aesthetic standards and refined sensitivities, and will be bothered by elements in your surroundings (such as disorder, cigarette smoke, etc.) that others may overlook. Your tastes are simple and understated, but extremely refined. Coarseness, bluntness, and vulgarity really offend you. You can be difficult to live with sometimes because of your fastidiousness, your sensitivity, and your idiosyncrasies about food and cleanliness.
Some would say you are a little TOO meticulous, for you can be extremely critical and petty if everything is not done exactly as you think it should be. You worry about things that other people consider trivial and unimportant. You like to organize and arrange everything into a logical system, and you are often distinctly uncomfortable when something does not fit into a neat category. You probably wish that you were not such a perfectionist, for you can also be mercilessly SELF-critical as well. Whether in your environment or within yourself, you tend to focus on the flaws, with a desire to improve, refine, and perfect. You are strictly factual, truthful, and scrupulously honest–to the point of being your most severe self-critic. You find it difficult to give yourself enough credit or value.
You may be too careful and cautious in your approach to life. You may over-analyze before you act and are too serious sometimes. You have a tendency to subject your world to a microscopic analysis, and you need to avoid getting engrossed with trivialities to the extent of losing sight of the issues. You love order and organization, but you need to learn to discriminate between the essential and the trivial, or you could experience difficulty in establishing and maintaining viable relationships. In your love life, you need to consider that not very many human beings could live up to your standards of perfection in a mate, a spouse, or a partner. Just because you are a Virgo, you do NOT have to set yourself up to be a VIRGIN!
You need to learn not to exhaust your body energies by worrying, fretting and overworking. Foolish fears and apprehensions can have deleterious effects on your health, but by establishing discipline of the mind, you can have a marvelous resistance to disease. Your body is likely to reject artificial foods and medicines. Eating when you are angry or anxious can cause you painful and harmful after-effects. You need to learn to relax, lighten up, and allow yourself to play and MAKE some mistakes which might actually be HEALTHY for you!
YOUR RISING SIGN
It would be impossible to even estimate the number of individuals who share your Sun sign, but just the opposite is true for your Rising sign. Only those who were born at the same geographic location and at the same exact moment of time could share the same precise second, minute, and degree of the sign upon your Ascendant. A difference in birth time of even a few minutes and/or a few degrees of latitude or longitude can alter the signs upon the houses and the locations of planets within the houses.
The horoscope is a circle, and the whole is made up of its many parts. The well-known Swiss psychoanalyst, Dr. Carl Jung, coined the term, “Synchronicity”, for life within the horoscope. Under that concept, the Rising sign represents the beginning of the natal chart as birth represents the beginning of life–the first part of synchronization. Like the horoscope, life is also a circle whose whole is made up of its many parts. Unlike the familiar TV beer commercial, however, we DO “Go around” more than once, and it CAN “Get better than this”.
Astrology, by way of the horoscope, symbolically divides life into twelve general areas called houses. There is a sign of the Zodiac upon the cusp (beginning) of each house. Your rising sign (Ascendant) is on the cusp of your first house, and signs upon the rest of the houses are determined progressively from that sign which was rising on the eastern horizon at the exact time and place of your birth. This makes your horoscope as individual and unique to your personal identity as are your fingerprints.
Some astrologers refer to the interpretation of the rising sign as the Mask we show the world–our public image. It is that part of our personality that we feel safe in allowing others to see. It may also disguise those facets of ourselves that we would prefer to keep to ourselves. Consequently, the delineation of influences from your rising sign could very well be descriptions of the way other people see you, though not necessarily the way you see yourself. It is certainly not the whole you or the ONLY you, but it could provide you with a valuable source of insight for enhancing your own self-awareness.
As you read the delineations of your chart, remember we are painting a composite portrait of your personality as revealed by the most prominent astrological influences in force at the moment of your birth. However, for each year of your life, the Sun has touched each point in your chart again. The Moon does this every twenty-eight days: Saturn, every twenty-eight to thirty-one years–and so with all the planets and parts within their own time circle. The ways in which you have dealt with the stresses and supports of your birth imprints and the subsequent aspects applied to your circle of life up to now will help to explain the person you are today.
Some delineations of specific aspects may appear to contradict others in your chart. Actually, there are no contradictions in Astrology–at least no more than there are in the human psyche. We are seeking a blend. It is in the interpretation of the whole chart and its application to the circle of your life that we begin to appreciate Dr. Jung’s word, “Synchronicity”.
Directly following your Rising sign we will interpret the influences of the signs on the houses (two through twelve) in your Natal chart. These signs are a natural progression from the Ascendant according to the house system used. We use the “Placidus” house system in our work. With this system, some houses could enclose a complete sign, and there could be the same sign on two houses, but since it allows for the curvature of the earth, we believe it places the coordinates most accurately to the east and west in both hemispheres.
Life is never dull around a Gemini rising. People with this Ascendant can be entertaining for hours because they cannot stand to be bored themselves. They need constant mental stimulation because their active minds simply will not rest.
Mercury rules the sign Gemini. This is the planet of mentality, thought, speech, and communication. The person with this Ascendant is a fascinating conversationalist, as words and ideas are his or her specialty. The word “mercurial” describes the mentality to a tee. Gemini is an air sign, making swiftness of the intellect even more pronounced, and it is in the mutable mode, emphasizing changeability. The symbol of Gemini is the twins. Those with this sign rising are accused of having a dual personality.
Others may feel that you talk out of both sides of your face, and follow a rather erratic course of action. You can appear irresponsible at times, for you will not allow yourself to be trapped under heavy and dampening pressures. Drudgery or routine can squelch your spirit more than anything else. You need to be valued and appreciated, but may shun obligation. Eventually, however, this very behavior will lead you to your highest expression.
You may be accused of having a dual personality, and you may actually feel safer if you have two situations in your life at once–be it personal or business. In reality, you are only exhibiting the duality of the human condition. Each person is body and soul and the tug of both is heavy. The pull of the pair of polar opposites can be intense, causing you to swing rapidly like a pendulum until you understand the necessity of bringing the spiritual and the physical together within yourself.
When you don’t feel safe with a situation, you can remove yourself without ever leaving the scene. If you decide to shut someone out, your warmth can disappear as if behind a cloud and the chill that is left can be very penetrating. Part of your appeal may be that people just never know exactly where they stand with you. You can outtalk, outthink, outsmart and outmaneuver them all the time. You will respect them if they CAN keep up with you, but will not like it if they should get ahead of you.
Others may see you as “spacey”. If you cannot express your true curiosity and interest, you can readily escape into a fantasy world. You are not able to take much punishment or heavy judgment, for you are deeply sensitive. If you hold a ball of mercury in the palm of your hand gently, it nestles in one spot, but if you push your finger down on it, it just simply slides away. As a very childlike person, you do the same thing. You slide into your rich imagination and retreat inside yourself.
You are always questioning and learning. You will always appear young and alive no matter what your chronological age, for your mind is always alert, curious, flexible, and open to new experiences. You have a childlike enthusiasm for anything new and you learn easily, but you also get bored rather quickly. You can appear to be something of a scatterbrain, for you tend to have so many ideas and irons in the fire that it is hard to keep track of them all. You are actually able to do at least two things at once, especially something with your hands while you are doing something with your mind. You need and crave variety, change, mental stimulation, and an active social life.
You may seem frivolous to other more serious souls. You have a sense of humor and a sense of perspective that prevents you from taking yourself (or life) too seriously. In fact, you may seem flippant or unconcerned about matters that others consider very important. However, you respond to life mentally and objectively, rather than emotionally, and you may not empathize with serious people very much. But no matter how badly you may be feeling, you never appear heavy or somber.
You will achieve true fulfillment only when you can pull the spiritual and physical aspects of your being together by eliminating the so-called “split” personality.
CANCER ON 2ND HOUSE–The Moon rules Cancer and when this sign is on the second house of money and worth, you will relate to financial affairs in an emotional way. Both making and spending money are likely to be affected by emotional needs. The ideal way for this person to earn money is by supplying what others need for growth and nourishment. Nurturing human services would fill the emotional balance. You are likely to have a nest egg tucked away to which you are emotionally attached and which you will protect at all costs.
CANCER ON 3RD HOUSE–When this emotional sign with the Moon ruler is on the cusp of the third house of communications, thinking mind, travel, and writing, you are likely to travel in connection with business and financial affairs. You can express yourself on an emotional level with an understanding of how the recipient feels about your communications. This would serve you well if you should try your hand at writing. Your intuitions are well-tuned, but intellectual objectivity could be a problem because it is difficult for you to think unemotionally.
LEO ON 4TH HOUSE–The Sun rules Leo and, when on the fourth house of domesticity and the home, it can truly make the home a place for you to “shine”. Your home may be a showplace where you can express your creativity and status. You can express your power most comfortably through home and family. You probably love to entertain, and your guests are treated with warmth and love.
VIRGO ON 5TH HOUSE–Mercury, the planet of intellect, rules Virgo, the sign of order and organization. On the fifth house of children, romance, and creative expression, they encourage careful, analytical thinking with close attention to detail. You are likely to be a perfectionist in social affairs and overly critical in affairs of the heart. You want everything (and everyone) in its (their) proper place. You will have very high expectations for both lovers and your children (whether they be physical children or “children of the mind”). Loved ones could become ill at ease with your scrupulous organizational tendencies.
SCORPIO ON 6TH HOUSE–Pluto rules Scorpio and when they are on the sixth house of work, service, and health, the powers can be overwhelming. Regeneration of health is likely to be needed in the areas of the nervous system, and the expression and/or repression of desires need to be positively balanced for the body’s needs to be healthy. Work and service could be attempted on a grand scale, and will be approached with unusual intensity.
SAGITTARIUS ON 7TH HOUSE–Jupiter, the planet of expansion, philosophy, and “good fortune”, rules Sagittarius, which is the sign of optimism and ideals. When this combination is found on the seventh house of relationships, marriage, and other partnerships, the results can be mutually rewarding. The marriage partnerships could become a business partnership, and either is likely to include a financial reward.
CAPRICORN ON 8TH HOUSE–Saturn, the planet of discipline and limitations, rules Capricorn, which can influence dedication and the serious approach. When this combination is found on the eighth house of needs, other’s resources, and death, they can cause extremely heavy feelings of responsibility. You can readily share your resources with others, but unless you earn your own you will be uncomfortable with others sharing their resources with you. Capricorn is a good business sign, and you could be a good financial advisor concerning other people’s money. This can also indicate an inheritance of some kind, but if so, it is likely to be limited and very structured–more like a trust.
CAPRICORN ON 9TH HOUSE–Capricorn with Saturn ruling on the ninth house of the higher mind, religion, philosophy, travel, publishing, etc., will encourage a conservative approach to all these matters. The philosophical outlook can be restricted by materialism, and perhaps the most comfortable way of expressing humanitarian instincts is through the profession. You are likely to be attracted to the more traditional types of religion and education, but any efforts you begin in these areas will be serious and determined.
AQUARIUS ON 10TH HOUSE–When Aquarius, ruled by Uranus, is found on the tenth house of ambition, career, profession, and esteem, there will be a mixture of the unusual and the stable–or a fluctuation between the two. You will bring unusual insights into your work, which could be performed within a large organization, corporation, or a structured institution. This favors human service careers–doctors, nurses, social workers, counselors, etc.
PISCES ON 11TH HOUSE–Pisces, on your eleventh house of friends, goals, and love received, is ruled by Neptune, the planet of vision and mystery. You will have many friends, some of whom may be very unusual. You are able to establish empathy and insight with friends and groups in which you become involved. However, you can tend to be rather indiscriminate in accepting friendships. As a result, you run the risk of sometimes getting hurt and disappointed by friends or groups that you become involved with.
TAURUS ON 12TH HOUSE–Venus, the planet of beauty, art, and material possessions rules Taurus, the sign of the bull. On the twelfth house of hidden meanings, limitations, and the subconscious, there is a tendency to be affected by conditions from the past which do not change easily. You can try to dwell in the sub-conscious level more than the conscious level, especially in the area of materialistic desires. You may feel your emotions much more strongly than you are able to verbalize them.
THE PLANETS: POSITIONS AND ASPECTS
Astrology recognizes ten major “heavenly bodies” in the Universe that radiate various influences toward earth, and thus manifest themselves in the lives and affairs of mankind. The Sun and the Moon influences are most recognizable because some of them are visible and tactile, such as light and heat. They also provide the base for mankind’s calculation of time–the calendar and the clock. Influences distributed by the other eight planets may be less visible and more subtle, but no less real.
These emanations are constant, but the intensity of their influences can be tempered by the sign they are in, the house of your chart in which they are located, and by their angular aspects to each other. We touched upon this in the introduction to the Ascendant when we also introduced the term “synchronicity”. In the following pages we will print the individual interpretations of each planet in your chart with respect to the sign it is in, and its house position.
Following that, we will print the interpretation of the planetary aspects to each other. Aspects are specific angles between two or more planets that have been found to modify the influences bestowed. Technically, every angle between planets creates an aspect, but some angles are more significant than others.
Astrology divides these aspects into “Major” and “Minor” categories. Minor aspects are used primarily in astrological research and for very precisely directed work, so we stick to the Major aspects in our general work. The major aspects are Conjunction (same degree), Sextile (60 degrees), Square (90 degrees), Trine (120 degrees), and Opposition (180 degrees). Don’t worry that some of these individual interpretations may seem to conflict with others. We look at the whole person, and the separate parts can modify, reinforce, or nullify each other.
We have pulled all this data together for you as it is displayed in your birth chart. This whole configuration can not be repeated or duplicated during your lifetime. Although the earth in its rotation around the Sun each year goes through all the twelve sign constellations and returns the Sun to its natal position, it takes Neptune 165 years and Pluto 248 years to complete their orbits. The planets are constantly moving their positions throughout the universe so that it is not possible for all the planetary positions and aspects to repeat themselves in your lifetime.
That leaves it up to us as individuals to deal with those influences imprinted upon us at birth and revealed through the horoscope. It is our hope, through astrology, that we may explain what those influences are and thus understand ourselves better. We have free will to make choices–choices which can affect those birth imprints in positive or negative ways. Probably no one of us will ever fulfill the “promises” of the natal chart in our lifetime, but hopefully, knowing what the influences are could help us to make some better choices.
PLANETARY SIGN AND HOUSE POSITIONS:
The following planetary sign and house positions are determined by YOUR birth data. There are 384 variations of these positions, as well as many other variables, but only 25 of them apply to each individual. The possibility of another person having the same combination of positions is practically non-existent.
The Sun and the Moon are known as the “Lights” and are not planets in the technical sense of the word. However, they are the most visible and perhaps more influential in affecting man’s awareness than all of the other heavenly bodies put together. The blend of the Sun-Moon influences, from the signs they are in, and whether they are in aspect or not, are extremely significant to the personality profile of the new life. The relationship of the Sun and Moon to each other by their position, sign, and aspect and their relationship to the Ascendant can sometimes provide us with an extremely accurate mini-interpretation of the chart. The interpretation of your Sun-Moon combination is printed next. Study it carefully–as well as the next three Sun and Moon sign delineations.
VIRGO SUN AND PISCES MOON–Virgo is an Earth sign in the Mutable mode. Pisces is a Mutable, Water sign. The signs are in opposition aspect, which usually means tensions or obstacles to be overcome in the path of life. Your tension is the need to learn how to serve your own needs. You are giving and caring, sometimes to the point of martyrdom. You can live to serve the needs of others, and then wonder why your own needs are not being met. You are intuitive and are likely to be interested in medicine and nutrition. This is the ideal combination for the mental caregivers of the world: doctors, psychiatrists, psych nurses, and mental health workers. Your mind is penetrating when directed outwardly towards intellectual pursuits, but you need to learn how to use that intensity to care for yourself. Watch out for over-idealistic expectations from life.
SUN IN THE FOURTH HOUSE–The Sun in the houses represents the departments of life most strongly affected by the individual will and power potential. In the fourth house, it indicates a strong interest in establishing a secure home and family. You are proud of your family heritage and may tend to have an aristocratic outlook. You want your home to be a showplace of art, beauty, and opulence–limited only by the extent of your wealth and social class. The early part of your life may be an uphill pull, but you are likely to achieve your security and prosperity toward the end of your life. You are likely to have a strong interest in land, houses, ecology, and natural resources. You may want to dominate your domestic scene, and you need to watch for a tendency to unreasonable family pride.
MOON IN PISCES–In mythology, the Moon is always female–as the Sun is always male. In most ancient religions and cults, the Moon represents the female force which reflects the male force of the Sun. In astrology, “she” bestows her indiscriminative influences upon both male and female alike, though each sex might respond to the influences in different ways. The Moon in the signs indicates the emotional responses to life’s situations. It determines how you are likely to react to external influences and to the actions of others.
The Moon in Pisces indicates a supersensitive nature that acts like a psychic sponge, soaking up the thoughts and emotions of others. You have a vivid imagination, verging on the mediumistic, which could result in enormous poetic, musical, or artistic talent. You are likely to be disproportionately kind and sympathetic, but you are easily hurt and could be excessively shy.
You could spend a large part of your life trying to find out what life (and afterlife) is all about, searching for answers to deep and indefinable questions to which there are no simple answers. Consequently, you could be drawn to religious or quasi-religious groups or cults for enlightenment. You need to seek true spiritual guidance to channel the dominance of your subconscious mind. Traditional and simple prayer and meditation is probably the best way to begin such a search.
You are much more ambitious than the combination of this caring, psychic sign and this caring and emotional planet would indicate. You could be quite talented in some, or many, areas of artistic expression in which you could carve out a measure of fame and success. You would also be quite good at any of the people-helping-people careers. You are likely to receive honors and recognition in whatever profession or career you ultimately choose.
Personal relationships will be intense, whether they are good or not-so-good. You like your home, and whether home-bound or not, it will be a safe haven and a base for all your activities–especially for your love-sex and romantic relationships. You love to make love and can be quite creative and inimitable in its expression–as well as thoroughly enjoying the romantic and the traditional.
You like to give and to get cards and small gifts, and can cry over nostalgia and soap opera. You could also be a little jealous, and a failed relationship will be extremely painful. You could blame yourself to the extreme and feel you are a failure in love. This could make you feel so vulnerable that you would withdraw into seclusion to protect yourself emotionally. If this should happen, you need to get out and about, meet new people, and get your life jump-started into more positive directions again.

Following are the interpretations of the planetary aspects to each other. Aspects are angular relationships between two or more planets that have been found to modify the influences bestowed. Significant angles are: Conjunction (same degree), Sextile (60 degrees), Square (90 degrees), Trine (120 degrees), and Opposition (180 degrees). Don’t worry that some of these individual interpretations seem to conflict. Remember–we look at the whole person, and the separate parts can modify, reinforce, or nullify each other.
SUN CONJUNCT PLUTO–This conjunction confers tremendous energy and willpower which may be demonstrated by regeneration and positive change in yourself and the things around you. It is imperative that you bring your will into tune with the Divine Will, and the results can be phenomenal. One result can be sexual potency, which can be expressed through the body or the mind. When sublimated through the mind, the higher states of the universal mind can be tapped, and you can become a true instrument of Divine Will. Without that influence, other manifestations could be self-destructive.
SUN SEXTILE NEPTUNE–This aspect supports creativity and inspiration which can be expressed through art, religion, and mysticism. Artists, writers, and musicians are likely to have this aspect. Mystical insights and sensitivity to the feelings and needs of others could give you a deep humanitarian outlook. These gifts of vivid imagination and visions could also be applied to successful ventures for material gain. Neptune is the planet of the occult–deep psychic feelings–and you need to seek always for positive spiritual guidance.
MOON SQUARE SATURN–This square produces feelings of melancholy and unhappiness. You are likely to have low emotional vitality. You may tend to be an emotional prisoner of the past, allowing distressing memories to block happiness in the present. You may have had a mother complex, or conflict with your mother. You need to force yourself to forget the past and face each new day with faith and optimism. Work on a positive self-image one day at a time, thus creating your own self-worth. Some difficulties with females is indicated. Know that and work on tolerance and patience.
MOON SQUARE THE ASCENDANT–Squares present obstacles to be overcome, and this one is no exception. It can create emotional difficulties with self-expression and in converting energy into action. Unconscious habit patterns are likely to interfere with your ability to act with decision. It can set the stage for annoyances in partnerships and close relationships. The keyword here is “Awareness”. Cultivate patience, and try to understand your personal mannerisms, body movements, and habit patterns.
MERCURY CONJUNCT PLUTO–This aspect combines strong willpower with great resourcefulness and helps you get to the bottom of what you wish to understand. You are able to see through others and to ferret out secrets. You are likely to see things as they really are and to accept truth even when it is uncomfortable. You could have a definite interest in the occult, with the wish to study and communicate these forces. Watch out for tendencies to want to remake others’ thoughts and mental perceptions.
MERCURY OPPOSITE THE MIDHEAVEN–This aspect enhances the skills to communicate with the public, and the natives could be known for their wit and conversational ability. There could be an interest in the law as a profession, or in any business where you would be dealing with contracts. Close friends are likely to be the intellectual type, and Mercury here will attract an intellectual spouse and partners.
MERCURY SQUARE MARS–This square produces an active, energetic mind, but you may have tendencies to become overeager to the point of impatience and argumentativeness. You may jump to conclusions before considering all the facts and viewpoints. Your reasoning is often interfered with by your emotions, especially anger. Remember, square aspects create stresses and set up tensions. You should strive for more patience, exercise diplomacy, and learn to be a good listener in order to overcome the negatives in this aspect. The lesson to be learned here is ego detachment.
MERCURY TRINE SATURN–This trine helps you with mental organization, especially in performing systematic mental work where there is little room for error.

MERCURY SEXTILE THE NORTH NODE–This configuration enhances your mental self-expression. You can communicate your own perception of reality to others in ways which make it easy for them to understand. It is easy for you make connections and receive the cooperation of friends and relatives, as well as partners. It helps to achieve mutual objectives.
VENUS CONJUNCT URANUS–This conjunction indicates strong social inclinations. You may have a tendency to confuse friendship and love, with some strong immediate attractions which can end just as suddenly. Needless to say, your love life could be erratic. Since you may want to bestow your affections to all, it may be difficult for you to remain romantically tied to one person. Your sparkling, effervescent personality is likely to make you quite popular, which can add to the problem. You love social activities, amusement, parties, and stimulating experiences in general. Patience and discipline in individual relationships is the growth indicator here.

VENUS SQUARE MARS–Squares mean stresses, and this one is no exception–especially in the areas of romance and relationships. Desires are very strong, possibly for selfish sexual gratification, and obviously there is need for control. Uncontrolled passion could cause great harm.

JUPITER CONJUNCT NEPTUNE–This aspect gives you a fertile imagination which can express itself in art, music, philosophy, and/or religion. You are extremely sensitive, both emotionally and psychically.

Avoid a world of private fantasy, and seek direction from the positive spiritual Source in your life through prayer and meditation.
JUPITER CONJUNCT NODE–This position gives unusual ability to harmonize with prevailing social, cultural, and religious attitudes.

INTERPRETATION, PERSONALITY PROFILE
Getting together all the information that makes up the face of your chart has primarily been mathematical and scientific–in a word, technical. The computer has used the date, time, and place of your birth to select and print out the interpretations of your Sun-sign, your Rising Sign (Ascendant), the Signs on the Houses, the Signs and Houses the Planets are in, and the aspects of the Planets to each other. These interpretations apply only to YOU.
In interpreting the total Personality Profile, however, we must add two more dimensions to the technical: “Symbolism” and “Intuition”. These operate mainly from our subconscious mind. Allow your intuition full play as you carefully study the face of the chart and allow its symbolism to “speak” to you. Often the chart can provide a key which opens the subconscious. If you don’t consciously “feel” anything, don’t worry about it. Just allow the full power of your intuition to apply, and keep your mind as open as you possibly can.
Now go back and read the printouts again: all the way from the Sun-sign through the aspects of Pluto. Try not to reject any statement–not those you dislike, or even those you like. Note any statement which you strongly agree or disagree with, and mark it for later study. Then add all statements which seem to contradict each other to the list. When you study the “contradictive” statements, try to determine if any of them might apply to you at a different time, or in a different place. Then consider if the pair could modify each other and produce an interpretation that does apply to you.
Astrology is not judgmental–it just IS. It doesn’t tell us what is “good” or “bad”, it only tells us what the influences are. We give the most optimistic and positive interpretation to that information that we possibly can. However, it has been our experience that often the most valuable information we can get from a chart is the awareness of those obstacles and stresses we need to overcome in order to grow and fulfill our lives according to our own individual value systems.
