Chapter 1: The Moon
The placement of the Moon in your birth chart is very significant from a karmic perspective, as it indicates the accumulated karmic tendencies, both positive and negative, that you carry from your past incarnated experiences on earth.
While the Sun reveals your intended purposes and lessons for this present life cycle, the MOON represents what you have already done and developed, hence, what is instinctive and natural to you, and what you tend to do over and over again. Your childhood is also reflected in the Moon’s placement, as it is through those childhood circumstances that any unresolved past-life issues are re-stimulated.
Your subconscious predisposition is indicated by the Moon’s position. It is the psychic imprint of the past. The nodes of the Moon describe behavior patterns from the past, as well as delineating a direction out of outworn or overdone behaviors and habits.
Moon in Capricorn:
You instinctively respond to challenges or stress by suppressing any emotions you have which might interfere with the job at hand, and taking control of the situation in an unsentimental, no-nonsense sort of way. You may become super responsible or throw yourself into your work – anything to keep feelings of helplessness or other “unacceptable” emotions at bay. “Don’t agonize – organize!” is your motto.
Early in life, and in previous lifetimes, you learned through circumstances not to expect others to take care of you, to rely on yourself emotionally, and to stifle or neglect your own needs for care and comfort, in order to survive. As a result you developed a certain toughness and a disinclination to trust, an underlying cynicism, which can interfere with your ability to establish emotional rapport and intimacy with people.
You want proof of another’s love or good will, some tangible evidence of their loyalty and commitment and you may “test” your friends or lover over a long period of time before you surrender your defenses and allow yourself to be truly close to them. Or you may care very much but, because your emotional self-control is so deeply ingrained, may be unable to communicate and express it openly, directly, warmly, with feeling.
You may substitute symbols of affection, gifts, or even money, for the real thing (being with the person, touching, listening, sharing your feelings.) You fear dependency, and may be intolerant of others’ lack of discipline, emotional self-indulgence or neediness, and “babyish” behavior in anyone, even little children. You were not allowed those sorts of feelings, either because of life circumstances or due to a rather critical, strict, authoritarian upbringing.
For whatever reason you absorbed the message that “life is a struggle”, “no one is going to take care of me”, and possibly “I don’t deserve to have my needs fulfilled”. Very likely the approval and love you received were not unconditional, but contingent upon proper behavior, achievement, or being responsible and not being a burden. It may be hard for you to remember a time in your life when you were truly a child, carefree and innocent.
Due to these subconscious imprints and beliefs about yourself, you could experience a sort of chronic, low-grade depression, and a tendency toward pessimism and negativity. You may feel a compulsion to achieve in a material sense, in order to feel good about yourself. Or, you may be comfortable in the role of protector and provider, offering stability and security to others, but (once again) neglecting your own needs to do so.
You can socially endure and forbear for long periods of time in rather meager or difficult circumstances, due to past experiences of deprivation and hardship. This may work to your benefit, for instance, in the pursuit of some academic or professional goal, or in any endeavor that requires denial of immediate gratification for the sake of a long-range objective. In your emotional and personal life, too, you are willing to hang in there through the hard times. However, sometimes you will stay with something or someone because you are used to subsisting on very little nourishment (emotional or otherwise) and you cannot envision or accept the possibility of anything better for yourself.
Security is extremely important to you and you are willing to sacrifice or forego much in order to maintain it. A great fear of poverty and emotional or material lack underlies this even if you have never really experienced such in your present lifetime. Memories of such lack from your incarnational past are likely to continue to influence you, unless you consciously change or “re-program” yourself (splurge a little, challenge those old patterns). Along those same lines, an overconcern with your reputation and public standing, proper form, adhering to certain societal rules and standards, having approval from the “right” people, ritualized etiquette, and so on, is deeply embedded in you.
You have learned to bow down to authority, and to achieve a measure of security in return. Most likely, you expect others to do the same. You can be emotionally dry, seemingly unfeeling or detached, and, when pushed to the extreme, a very controlling disciplinarian.
You would benefit from learning to relax, not to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders, and that life is not all struggle, all duty, all work.
Moon Quincunx Mars:
Your instinct to take aggressive action, to take on challenges and to fight, has deep roots, and in terms of your current life and circumstances it may well work both for and against you. If you find that your personal life is stormy and conflicted or that people at work aggravate you, it would behoove you to consider your role in the situation. You are apt to project early and intense sibling rivalries and other unresolved competitive and angry feelings on to many situations in life (usually quite unconsciously).
You are likely to be touchy and defensive, quite sensitive to having your will and desires impeded, and the women in your life may especially be the targets for your unacknowledged anger. There may be one woman in particular with whom you have a volatile karmic relationship, and coming to resolution with her would bring peace to many other areas of your life.
In any case, you must learn not to direct your aggressiveness on to innocent people! You do have an independent, energetic, spirited approach to life, a passion for doing and achieving, which are pluses. To balance your emotional energies, learning and regularly practicing techniques for calming and relaxation would be very beneficial for you. You have a tendency to burn out because you do not moderate yourself. If you are so inclined, meditating with or wearing certain stones may be an aid in this regard, including: chrysoprase, rose quartz, moonstone, and jade.
North Node in Virgo:
In your incarnational past you tended to be idealistic and imaginative, and longed to escape the difficulties of ordinary physical life. Your growth direction now is to learn to be more clear and focused, and to ground your charitable impulses in some sort of practical service.
North Node in 12th house:
You may find that your past tendencies are activated particularly in your job, the daily tasks you perform, and they also strongly influence your health for good or ill. Exploring the deeper, hidden dimensions of yourself (through dream work, hypnosis) or purposefully engaging the parts of yourself you consider to be weak or unacceptable are also an important part of your growth direction in this lifetime.
Chapter 2: The Sun
The Sun in your birth chart represents the primary creative thrust for this lifetime, those qualities you are to develop (or further develop) and express, and your current life focus. This may be in harmony with your instincts and your emotional habits, or along completely different lines. The Sun represents your conscious identity in this lifetime.
Sun in Gemini:
You came into this life equipped with great curiosity, a lively, versatile, inquisitive mind, and an urge for constant learning and new experiences. Your most basic inner drives are to communicate, to make connections and association (between people or ideas), and to develop your gift for language and expressing yourself through the spoken or written word. Thus, being an intermediary or messenger, a translator, a teacher, a broadcaster, a correspondent, or in some field where you can mix and mingle and interact with a broad spectrum of people, suits you well.
Fascinated by life’s seemingly endless variety and the multitude of options and choices available, you may flit from one person, job, hobby, or location to the next, restlessly seeking new experiences and stimuli. Even if you do not do this in your outward behavior, inwardly your mind is in constant motion, and you require a healthy dose of variation and mental or social stimulation in your life in order to approach anything resembling contentment. Skimming lightly over the surface of life, however, can lead to a shallowness of understanding and a fluttering away of your energies.
At a deep level, you are much more identified with your mind (or spirit) than with your body and, in fact, you may feel peculiarly detached from your body, and somewhat at odds with being physical. Compared to the lightness and rapidity of thought, earthly experience can seem dull and slow to you and this contributes to your bouts of impatience and restlessness. Psychologically, also, you are more androgynous than sharply polarized as either man or woman. This means that you are able to relate equally well to men and women, having much of both in your inner make up.
In some ways, however, you are apt to feel non-identified with your gender and perhaps that you are not a “real” man or woman, or a secret confusion over feeling neither wholly male or female but some curious place in between, a blend of both.
Esoterically or spiritually considered, you are here (among other reasons) to develop an awareness of dualism and of opposites. You see at least two sides of everything and are often of two minds about any given topic. You possess many opposing attributes within yourself and it is part of your soul development to bring them together within yourself. In addition to the male/female dualism, there is the idealist/cynic and the rational scientist/intuitive mystic (or “believer”), among others. You are apt to switch from one to another or, chameleon-like, to change according to your surroundings, circumstances, or companions.
This mutable quality is apt to earn you a reputation for being somehow shifty, fickle, or outright duplicitous, which may or may not be accurate. What is true is that because you see validity in both ways of being, you can not take either of them completely seriously, or to put yourself whole heartedly into either. You are keenly aware of the humorous, the paradoxical, the other side of the coin – and often can not help pointing it out.
The above mentioned urge to connect and communicate which at one level may simply be expressed as incessant talking or a ferocious need for social interaction is operative on an inner level as well: you need to connect your intellect with your intuition, your conscious with your unconscious, your head with your heart.
(Being, at a deep level, more allied with your mind and ageless, ever-young spirit rather than your body has another significance as well: you may be terribly resistant to and fearful of the body’s aging process. Denying your advancing years, even lying about your age, is a typical response to this. Coming to terms with the fact of aging and dying is very important because otherwise you are apt not to take your life seriously either).
Sun Square Pluto:
In this lifetime you are apt to undergo a series of death-and-rebirth experiences, deep personal crises which force you to make radical alterations in your self or your life, and to dig deep within to find the resources to begin anew. You are attracted magnetically and karmically to the very people and situations which will compel you to confront your true motives, the stuff you are really made of, and those aspects of life we usually keep hidden away.
The development of the will, and the use/abuse of personal power, are key issues for you in this present life cycle. Early in your life you are apt to meet tyranny, domination and the excesses of another’s personal power. The results of which are likely to be your deep resistance to being controlled and a rejection of authority. Your relationship with your father may be a particular focus for all of these issues (the early death or absence of your father may be crucial here also).
While you may indeed have been a victim of another’s abuse of power, you also need to recognize your own will-to-power, your drive for personal recognition and self-glorification. You tend to be intensely compulsive, and even ruthless when pursuing your own goals, not even realizing that you may be trampling over others’ feelings or life-requirements.
You are capable of going to extraordinary lengths to get what you want, perhaps on an entirely unconscious level. This trait is apt to create havoc in your relationships, until you become aware of it and make conscious efforts to change it. At your worst you can unconsciously assume that everyone in your life exists to promote your own objectives and, put bluntly, you tend to lack humility entirely until life brings you to your knees a few times.
Part of your life mission is to understand the taboo, hidden, or dark side. You may have a great fear of and fascination with death, with the “have not’s” or outlaws of society, with things that others may consider ugly, fearful, and unredeemable. Or it may be your own darkness and negativity that you must confront. Either way you will not be allowed to glide along on the surface of life.
To facilitate this process, certain gemstones may be helpful for you to wear or carry, including: amethyst, malachite, garnet, ruby, and green or watermelon tourmaline.
Sun SemiSquare Venus:
How to be true to yourself while also enjoying close personal relationships is a pointed issue for you in this lifetime. When you compromise or give up too much of yourself for the sake of making other people happy or keeping a relationship intact, a lot of internal friction is created and you feel increasingly empty or uncertain of your identity. At other times you may see-saw to the other extreme and expect others to totally support your creative efforts or to revolve their lives around your needs. Finding a balance between blending intimately and being authentically yourself is your challenge.
Sun Quincunx Neptune:
A high degree of spiritual perceptiveness and psychic sensitivity opens you to the intangible side of life. You may possess unusual gifts, such as the ability to see auras or to “read” people intuitively, clairvoyantly or the ability to channel healing energy or a prodigious musical or artistic talent. Your imagination and capacity to create from images in your fantasies or dreams is one aspect of your giftedness. An awakened sense of unity with all other living things also engenders within you much compassion, gentleness, and a desire to help or “save” them. Part of your soul mission is the further development and refinement of these gifts.
However, such sensitivity and openness is not without potential problems. Being aware (however subtly) of the vastness of life and of the spiritual dimension may lead you to abdicate personal responsibility for directing your own course in life (“let God do it”, or “It’s my fate”). Escapism, evasiveness and passivity in the face of challenges from the outside world are negative potentials. You can be too yielding, too gentle. Your assessment of yourself may also be unclear and less than accurate. Quite often you underestimate your own power to determine your life and your own abilities in other areas.
When out of balance, you tend to glamorize or overidealize yourself or others, to get caught up in some fantasy (without distinguishing between truth and fiction), to neglect your emotional and/or physical self for the sake of some dream or spiritual ideal, or to be naive and gullible and easily manipulated. There is some indication that a misunderstanding or mis-direction of spiritual energies in your incarnational past needs to be addressed and balanced out in your present cycle.
It is especially important for you to be thoroughly grounded in the physical world, and especially to avoid mind or mood altering substances which could serve to distort your perceptions, confuse, or destabilize you. Incorporating a regular, rhythmic pattern and some form of self discipline in your life will also enable you to use your imaginative and spiritual gifts to the fullest. Above all, rigorous honesty with the self is required. It can also be helpful to get feedback and assistance from people who are mature, well-grounded, practical, and effective in the world.
Chapter 3: Rising Sign
The point that was on the eastern horizon at the moment of your birth is called the ASCENDANT, or rising sign. While the Sun describes your conscious direction and current life focus, and the Moon your subconscious predisposition and past, the Ascendant indicates a way of being that transcends and embraces past, present, and future. It describes the way you engage and merge with the outer world and how you bring through into life the energies depicted by the Sun, the Moon, and the rest of your birth chart. Everything is filtered through the Ascendant from an esoteric point of view. It indicates your soul’s function and thus a key part of your destiny.
You do everything skillfully with a fine sense of craftsmanship and precision, perfectionism, care and attention to detail. You are keenly observant and have an acute sensitivity to each and every thing in your environment; therefore, you attend to small things that others do not readily notice, the subtleties, the fine points. You fulfill your soul function through service, assisting and helping others, perhaps in a rather humble, understated, unglamorous way, and doing a job for its own sake rather than for personal recognition or glory. Your simple desire to be useful and to be of service, your willingness to engage in ongoing practice in order to improve, and your willingness to change or adjust yourself according to the light you have at any given moment, enables you to fulfill your function. When out of balance, you criticize, worry, obsess about yourself and/or your health or body, and tend to magnify problems.
Virgo Rising and Mercury in Cancer:
Your ruling planet, Mercury, is in the sympathetic and subjective sign of Cancer, indicating an interest in children, women’s health and/or the healing professions in general, food and nutrition, psychology, and teaching. You are a worrier, and need to learn to let go of excessive anxiety, especially over people you care about. (You tend to criticize or fuss about little things when you are afraid for their well-being). The domestic arts are your forte, as well, and an important part of your contribution to life.
Chapter 4: Saturn, Your Achilles Heel
Karmically considered, the placement of Saturn in your birth chart indicates where your energetic blockages, weaknesses and fears lie, and the areas of your life where the most concentrated effort and discipline will be required to master and overcome them. Yet it also points to the aspects of life which can become your greatest strength if you are willing to face your fears and difficulties honestly, and work with them patiently.
Saturn in Capricorn
The quality which is most likely to undermine you is your propensity to be very judgmental and hard on yourself (and on others as well). It is as if there were within you a very stern, exacting Father, always critically assessing your actions and condemning your weaknesses or mistakes, urging you to grow up and take responsibility for yourself and reminding you that life is serious business, not a playground. While this is not entirely without merit, it is hard to live up to these internal standards all of the time, and a sense of inadequacy, of never quite making the mark, can plague you.
You can become overly responsible, overly conscientious and depressed by this burdensome state of mind. Coldness, cynicism and a callous worldliness are negative potentials. And if you project these attitudes outwardly, you will find other people can never meet your expectations.
A karmic link to your father with whom you are apt to have a rather difficult or distant relationship is also indicated. The test or lesson for you is to learn to embody all of the positive attributes of a father (regardless of your own gender), while also having compassion, humor and forgiveness towards yourself.
Saturn in 5th house:
A deep sense of being unloved and a fear of going unnoticed and unappreciated for your creative efforts is apt to effect you in a number of ways. You may work very hard at being the best in some sport or art, or at producing the best possible product, spurred on by a sense of personal inadequacy (“I’m #2, so I try harder”). Yet you tend to labor over (even suffer over) your creative projects and offspring, rather than enjoying them. Or, you may simply believe that you are “not special” or “not creative”, and thus experience a block whenever you attempt to express your unique self.
The whole arena of self-expression, in the sense of pouring out your energy into the world and receiving a response, is difficult or frustrating for you. The basic lesson for you to learn here is how to let go of control, whether of your own creative impulses or of the desire to control others’ responses to you. Developing self-approval and self-love will enable you to untie the knots you are apt to be tangled up in this area of your life.
Saturn is Retrograde:
All of the above is complicated by the fact that you carry a rather heavy burden of self-doubt, mistrust, or guilt over having let yourself and others down in your past, when you struggled (and failed) with these same issues. You now have the opportunity to correct your course, make amends and resolve a difficult karmic tangle, or a difficult state of mind.
Saturn Square Venus:
In this lifetime the arena of human relationships and personal love will be full of challenge and lessons for you. Love is hard to find, hard to sustain, or just plain hard! Shyness and loneliness, due mostly to an acute sensitivity to the possibility of rejection, are apt to plague your younger years. Even when friendship and open affection is offered to you, you are prone to doubt it, push it away in disbelief, or feel unworthy of it. Pure, unadulterated pleasure in any form discomforts you. Subconsciously at least, you believe that there is a price to be paid for any love or pleasure you receive, that you may be punished if you enjoy too much or love too much.
There is an inner link between love and loss, love and separation, or love and punishment that inhibits you or makes you wary. Worst of all, you may feel that you are unlovable or unwanted. All of this is a karmic carry-over which needs to be handled with great compassion toward yourself. You may have toughened up and hardened your heart a great deal due to past injury, so that you have acted in cold, unfeeling, ungenerous, or unloving ways towards others and yourself.
Perhaps, too, you have put work or other responsibilities ahead of the needs and desires of your heart. An opening and healing of the heart, first of all by cherishing yourself, is necessary. Once you start valuing yourself, your personal relationships will reflect that, and happiness in love in your later years can do much to make up for the earlier difficulties.
You might wish to wear or carry rose quartz, tourmaline, lavender, jade, or chrysoprase.
Chapter 5: The Hard Aspects
The following is a description of your MAJOR LIFE CHALLENGES, both in terms of energies you are to learn to develop and express in a positive way, and those which are the result of struggles and unresolved karmic issues which you have brought into this life.
Mercury Quincunx Jupiter:
Forging a link between your conscious intellect and your super-conscious or higher mind is a major focus for you in this lifetime.
This may be felt initially in a number of ways: an urge to expand mental horizons and absorb as much knowledge as possible through broad study or world travel, an attraction to spiritual philosophy, or simply as mental restlessness and dissatisfaction with the mundane details of life. What you are seeking is to see the larger pattern, an overview which gives both an integrated understanding and meaning to one’s experiences.
This cannot be apprehended solely through the conscious intellect, but comes through the capacity to intuit and make connections and see patterns. This desire to see the big picture sometimes translates as a certain sloppiness or imprecision in your thinking. The broad brush strokes are often enough for you. Also, you quickly grasp the overall idea or concept and do not want to get bogged down with the particulars.
You tend to focus on what is possible (the limitlessness of potential) rather than what already is. Optimistic and open-minded, you see reasons why things could happen rather than why they cannot. The development of this kind of faith and the belief in things not yet realized is also an aspect of your linking your conscious mind to your higher mind.
The ability and the calling to communicate truth is a part of this energy pattern as well. When out of balance you can be preachy, exaggerate what you know, or think you know it all. Channeled positively and productively, you could evolve into a teacher who brings parts of the world together. Long distance communication and journeys (both in the physical, outer world and in the inner realms) are part of this aspect. At your finest with this particular pattern, you will act as a mediator or bridge between different places or realms.
Mars Square Neptune:
Your masculine, yang, assertive energies combine (somewhat tensely and uneasily) with your urge for transcendence, grandeur, and a life beyond the every day or material. This could be expressed through you in various ways. At best you are an inspired creative genius with the drive and need to physically manifest your dreams and visions. (This may, nevertheless, be hard on those around you or the part of you that wants a normal, orderly existence, as you tend to become fanatical and to ignore the more mundane stuff).
You may have a great deal of fantasy about and infatuation with masculinity, male power, which can lead to feelings of personal inadequacy, sexual confusion, an overidentification with macho strengths and values, muscles, competition, or simply an unclear relationship with men. You may idealize the man (father, husband, son) and fail to perceive them accurately. You tend to go to extremes, either denying all male attributes, functions or values, or secretly worshipping them.
You may also have great aspirations and far reaching ambitions which may or may not be practically realizable. However, for you, to live is to dream. Strive for complete honesty, with yourself as well as others, because the downside of this pattern is a tendency to evade or deceive or simply ignore what is. Also avoid the tendency to use either your physical strength or your sexual power and charisma in an exaggerated way. Misdirection of these energies can weaken your vitality considerably.
Ultimately you may be led to devote your strength and all your actions to something that transcends personal gratification and personal desire, becoming a channel for a higher power to work through.
Jupiter is Retrograde:
Moral concerns (including lingering unresolved issues stemming from a prior lifetime or lifetimes in which you exercised poor judgment in moral, ethical, or religious matters) come into play here. Thus, it is especially important for you to maintain high standards while pursuing your aspirations.
Jupiter Square Neptune:
You are a visionary, a philanthropist, an idealist whose imagination knows no bounds. You believe in miracles, in the reality of the intangible realms, and you KNOW that nothing is impossible. Because your higher centers of intuition, spiritual vision, and openness to the divine are very active, you accept and experience things many people would think quite impossible.
When out of balance with this energy (if, for instance, you are operating out of greed or neediness), your imagination and expectations can be grandiose, impractical, naive, and overblown. You may have difficulty accepting and working within the limits of mundane reality, and with setting boundaries in many areas of your life. Escapist fantasies, gambling on highly speculative ventures that promise great gain with little effort expended, or wandering far and wide without grounding yourself anywhere are also tendencies when you are less emotionally and spiritually mature. You will evolve as you choose to discipline yourself and FOCUS your intent on real, concrete, practical ways. You can bring your vision to earth.
Jupiter Quincunx Pluto:
Part of your life mission involves learning how to generate and direct a great leap of material, political, social or spiritual power. You have a gift for spiritual or intellectual leadership. As an agent of transformation in your world, you are intended to help regenerate social or religious institutions and to effect profound change and growth in the people around you. There are karmic pitfalls involved in all of this, however. First, is the tendency to become infatuated with power and/or inflated with a sense of your own greatness.
Secondly, conflicts with those in power may result in loss of social standing or reputation. Pitting yourself against the big guys and losing is always a risk you will have to take if you are to fulfill your natural role and function. In past incarnations this did in fact take place, perhaps leaving you now with a fear or disregard of government, the church, or other great authorities. Thus, you may have a struggle accepting your role as a leader or teacher, and/or integrating with society as it currently exists.
Neptune is Retrograde:
The above is complicated by the fact that you had a prior lifetime or lifetimes in which you dissipated your energy, fell away from your disciplines, or were too passive or irresolute to go after the spiritual opportunities open to you at that time. This carries over as a vague yet persistent inner nagging that you should be further on than you are, or a fear of spiritual failure.
You may also have been involved in mystical or magical practices that created distortions in your life. It is important for you to take a balanced, patient, well-grounded attitude toward life – nothing too otherworldly, ethereal, or glamorous. Indulging in any mood-altering substances is particularly deleterious for you.
Pluto Conjunct North Node:
Profoundly transformative events or crisis will occur in your life periodically as you follow your growth direction. It may be that impersonal forces beyond your control impinge upon your personal destiny. Or, a significant death, failure, or loss will usher in an entirely new life and sense of personal mission. For you, FATE is always an important player.
Chapter 6: Soft Aspects
The following is a description of your GIFTS and STRENGTHS which can help you work with your major life challenges. These are abilities and qualities of heart, mind, and soul which are quite natural to you. You probably take them for granted. Because these represent the lines of least resistance for you, you may rely too much upon them at times; hence, there are some cautions suggested. Still, these are the areas where good flows into your life and/or where you have considerable inner resources.
Sun Trine Jupiter:
Your life is blessed in numerous ways because you have developed intuitive vision (the ability to envision greater possibilities, to “see” potentials and future developments) and faith (in yourself, in the Universe’s essential beneficence and abundance, and/or in a higher power that guides and protects you). Because you feel and know your connection with the whole, God, the Tao (or whatever you wish to call it), your actions and intentions are more likely to be in harmony with the larger reality and hence successful. What may appear to be your prodigious good “luck” is actually an inner alignment with this larger reality which enables you to take risks and trust, and to be generous knowing you have an inner source of support.
You make choices and decisions not based solely on self interest. Innately optimistic, you tend to radiate and project positive expectations into the world, thereby actually creating or drawing them unto yourself. Because you are open to miracles, you are more than likely to see them and make them happen. The only drawback to all of this is a tendency to get lazy, because things come so easily to you. It seems as though you wear a halo, as though you are especially favored by the gods, so to speak. As long as you are willing to share your good fortune, however, this should not be a serious problem.
Mercury Trine Neptune:
An innate understanding of spiritual and metaphysical principles, and a direct perception of the inner world (via intuition, clairvoyance or clairaudience, etc.) enables you to speak of or teach others these subjects. Your conscious mind links easily and readily to other dimensions. This is something you probably take for granted and it may happen without any conscious effort or intent on your part. You are like a “cosmic radio” and you may pick up certain vibrations and the feelings of others without realizing you are doing so. You also have a sensitive nervous system which responds quickly to stimuli, so you require a harmonious atmosphere in order to function at your best.
Your psychic and/or musical, artistic, and poetic sensibilities are pronounced due to prior development in these arenas.
Mercury Sextile Pluto:
You have a gift for intellectual strategy and solving mysteries and puzzles. Intense mental focus and concentration, combined with your acute perceptions, enables you to do “magic” when you set your mind to it, and your wizardry in some specialized field may be well known.
You are deeply interested in what lies below the surface in any situation or person, and have an instinctive grasp of these subtleties. You may, for instance, use your hands to perceive the auric field, discover imbalances, and transmit healing energies to the one in need. The deep study of esoteric subjects, as well as the development of your mental powers, is natural to you, for you have pursued these areas in your incarnational past. This knowledge can be reawakened in you rather easily, and you are likely to be a teacher and/or transmitter of the understandings you have gained.
Venus Trine Uranus:
Your gifts include an unusual flair or creative spark, playful inventiveness, and a taste for adventure and surprise that lead to new forms of pleasure or beauty.
You are also open to unconventional, nontraditional ways of sharing, loving, and relating to people. Collaborating and bringing unusual combinations of people together makes you happy.
Having bells or chimes in your environment can augment and bring out these qualities and gifts. Musical abilities and a wonderful sense of rhythm are talents you have brought with you into this cycle of life. When you are out of balance or overwhelmed, music or dancing is a way you can rejuvenate yourself.
