Sample Love Styles: About Him Report (no birth time)
LoveStyles: About Him Chart Interpretation for Freddie Prinze Jr.
—No Birth Time Sample–
This LoveStyles report examines various factors in your natal chart, Freddie, in terms of love, romance, partnership, and sexuality.
You may note that some of the following descriptions appear to contradict each other–and indeed we are all walking bundles of contradiction. If you examine yourself carefully, you will probably realize that you do in fact possess the qualities of both conflicting descriptions. Even though some parts of the reading may seem to clash, you will see that certain themes are repeated throughout the following pages. These are the ones that will become major issues in your life.
The readings stress that you are the ultimate decider of your fate. The stars may indicate the hand you were dealt at birth, but it is up to you to play that hand well enough to achieve your goals. Also, bear in mind that every “bad” aspect of a chart also has a “good” side. How it is expressed is really up to you. We tend to work at expressing ourselves more positively most of the time and only lapse into the negative behavior described when depressed, angry or scared. Or it is possible that some aspects may better describe your personality or behavior earlier in life. They may seem alien now because you have already worked through them.
A “Strength” number precedes each aspect description; this number takes into account how exact the aspect is, whether the aspect is a major or minor one, and whether an aspecting planet is close to one of the four chart angles. The higher the Strength, the more you are likely to feel the aspect and to act it out in your life.

In Your Element
Comparing the elements of the Sun, Venus, and Mars.
The Sun represents our ego, Venus represents our romantic nature, and Mars represents our desire nature. When these planets are in different signs, we may send out conflicting messages concerning what we feel we need, like, and want!
The 12 signs of the zodiac are divided into 4 groups, called elements. The following paragraphs examine your Sun, Venus, and Mars signs with respect to the elements Fire, Earth, Air, and Water.
Sun in Pisces, Mars in Gemini
Watery Ego, Airy Desires
In order to feel strong and empowered, you need warmth, nurturing, and compassion in your life. When you want something (or someone), your approach is somewhat indirect. You are not an aggressive man. You prefer to adopt a “soft sell” approach to life, using your charm and considerable intellect to get where you want to go. You enjoy flirting, and you believe that sex is as much of a mental exercise as it is a physical one. You are open-minded and flexible when it comes to sex (and life!), and you can sometimes frustrate your partners with your combination of compassion and aloofness. Your partner doesn’t know what to expect with you much of the time-whether you’ll respond in a warm or rational manner at any given moment!
Venus in Aquarius, Mars in Gemini
Romantic Air, Airy Desires
You are drawn to women who are youthful, spirited, intelligent, and cool. You need a certain amount of space–freedom of movement, both physically and mentally–in any relationship, and you don’t care for restrictive or possessive partners. You need for your mind to be stimulated. Not as empathetic as some, you are really quite rational when it comes to expressing yourself romantically and sexually. You offer your partner a certain level of freedom to be who she is, and you appreciate the same in return. You value being FRIENDS with your partners as well as lovers, and you’re a good friend, too!
You are a playful, spontaneous, and light-hearted lover who considers communication to be a key “ingredient” in relationships. You respond most lovingly to verbal expressions of interest and affection. You are turned off by partners (or potential partners) who are uncommunicative. As long as there is what you consider to be an open and flowing communication between yourself and your partner, you feel loved and appreciated. You can be a real flirt, sometimes promising a little more than you can deliver. Your partners find you lively, intelligent, and fun, although a tad aloof at times.
Planets in Signs
Sun in Pisces
Pisces are well known for being sensitive, emotional and artistic. Their mood changes like a chameleon to blend with those around them. For this reason, it is imperative that their associates and immediate environment be of a positive nature. Pisces is the sign most likely to cry at a sad movie. Because you are so sensitive and compassionate, you tend to take on the problems of others. You do all you can to avoid hurting others and often help them if you can.
At times it may be difficult for you to separate fact from fantasy. You live in a semi-dream world, and you will retreat into your illusory world whenever the pressures of real life become unbearable. You are prone to daydreaming (especially when you were a child). Pisces are usually quite shy, and this sometimes limits your ability to make friends easily. Learn to be less concerned about what others think of you and concentrate on improving your own self-image.
Because of your genuine desire to help others, you are an easy victim for those who would abuse your kindness. Be careful to surround yourself with people you can trust. It can be fairly easy for you to become disappointed and discouraged, but you snap out of it quickly. Instead of being passive, learn to stand up for yourself more often.
Pisces is also the sign of the mystic. They are either deeply religious (though not necessarily through an orthodox church) or have highly developed intuitive and psychic abilities. Feelings of greed and competition are foreign to Pisces, who find such energies irritating to their sensitive natures. As a result, they are usually not found in the dog-eat-dog corporate world–unless other factors in their charts give them this competitive edge.
In affairs of the heart, Pisces is devoted, tender, gentle and affectionate. Since Pisces has so much love to give, others often misunderstand their motives and consider them to be “coming on” to them. The truth is that Pisces is sympathetic and understanding of all others–not just their inner circle of loved ones. Pisces is known for being evasive with others, but rarely purposefully deceptive. The key word here is “purposefully.” Often they deceive themselves and therefore consider themselves to be quite truthful when others see them as deceptive. You avoid being pinned down to any one opinion, lifestyle or appointment! You like to keep your options open, and you shy away from absolute, black-and-white statements.
Moon in Gemini
It is difficult for you to limit yourself to one activity at a time, and you are constantly looking for new stimulating experiences. In youth, you have the ability to handle several relationships simultaneously without anyone getting hurt. You require good communication with your lovers, and they must have a keen sense of humor. A possessive partner would be a source of frustration for you, for you must be allowed to express yourself freely. Be sure your partner is aware of your needs and respects them.
You are not known for your stability, and you need a partner who can understand your dual nature. If you have such a mate, you may not feel the need to lie in order to avoid confrontations. This can be a bad habit of yours. As you age you will retain a youthful look and behavior about you. People with this Moon placement can succeed at “staying young forever.” Your openness to new ideas is admirable, although decisiveness and persistence take a blow as a result.
Still, versatility and adaptability are some of the stronger traits of this position of the Moon. In order to feel loved and nurtured, you need some level of personal freedom, intellectual stimulation, and variety. Although the sign of Gemini is often associated with men who “wander”, you don’t feel the need to do so if your relationship stays fresh, interesting, and varied. If your partner is possessive and doesn’t like you to explore your many interests and associate with friends, you can become bored, restless, and cagey very quickly.
Mercury in Aquarius
Mercury in the sign Aquarius has a reputation for being the sign of the genius, as many inventors and scientists have Mercury in this sign. You have a highly original and versatile mind, and you can put your ideas to work in a practical manner. It may be difficult for you to gain acceptance from your own generation for your ideas because with Mercury in Aquarius you are a futuristic thinker. In another 50 years, everyone else will catch up.
Although your friends are very special to you, it is important that you follow your own convictions no matter what others think. With your highly developed intuition, you also have the ability to see through the pretenses of others. You communicate your ideas very clearly so that others can easily understand even the most abstract concepts.
You have a well-balanced concept of human values and view life from the point of view of what is most helpful for the entire planet (or the Universe). You strive to remain detached and objective, so that your judgment can remain clear. This is a good idea, as long as your detachment does not become aloof coolness. You have a natural aptitude for science, both traditional and metaphysical.
Your friends will be your greatest source of mental stimulation, and you will choose friends from every walk of life. With your highly developed sense of intuition you may have psychic abilities, such as telepathy or premonitions. You have an excellent memory.
You are a true humanitarian, although you most definitely can say things that are designed to shock people out of their complacency! You are not necessarily a loud or flamboyant person, but you have a quiet way of stirring others up. You delight in exposing what you deem to be biases in others’ way of thinking. Very quick to contradict others, and to offer a different perspective, you enjoy intellectual debates. Your tendency to enjoy scoring intellectual points may irritate your partner at times! Sometimes you come across as if you have an intellectual superiority complex, which can intimidate others. Be aware of this tendency. It is unlikely that you mean to come across this way.
Most of the time, however, you make for delightful company. You usually have something interesting to say, and your perspective on issues can be delightfully unusual, quirky, and surprisingly insightful. Practical jokes and anything that shocks and stirs others up, are things you enjoy fully. In a conversation, it is easy and natural for you to detach yourself emotionally from the subject at hand, and this can get you into hot water with intimate partners.
If you’re talking about something personal and intimate, try to keep yourself in the moment rather than jumping into analytical and objective “mode”. Otherwise, you may offend a more sensitive partner who prefers to have you in the here and now.
Venus in Aquarius
“We sat side by side in the morning light
and looked out at the future together.”
– Brian Andres –
With this placement of Venus, you require a great deal of freedom in relationships and you resist being tied down unless the relationship offers you the chance to express yourself as an individual. You are also willing to provide this freedom to your partner, and you are not as jealous or possessive as many men. You look at your feelings intellectually and can appear aloof or impersonal to others at times. This Aquarian detachment gives you the ability to stand back and look at any given relationship objectively and clearly. Just don’t become so distant that you cannot empathize with your loved ones and offer them solace.
It is very important to you that your lover be a friend. In your love relationships, you prefer a partner who is unique and a little offbeat by society’s standards. You need a lover who can respect your need for personal freedom and your own individual identity. Although you are somewhat resistant to being tied down, you are very capable of establishing and maintaining long-term love relationships. You have endurance and resist change once committed.
You are rebellious and “negatively suggestible” in your love affairs. That is, the best way to get you to do something is to demand that you do just the opposite. You can be extremely stubborn at times and can turn ice cold when you are hurt. Once you have committed yourself to a partner, you are loyal and truthful and are willing to extend the same personal freedom to your lover that you demand. You impress potential partners with an open-minded, progressive spirit.
At times provocative without the intensity that often goes with it, your somewhat aloof manner is often a big turn-on, although more sensitive women may feel threatened by it. You don’t follow the beaten track in matters of the heart, and a relationship that breaks from tradition is right up your alley. You don’t want to follow all the rules, and you make quite a few of your own. Emotional scenes are not your cup of tea. You prefer to solve relationship problems logically and rationally.
You are most impressed with women who are somewhat unconventional or kooky in their choice of clothes and overall style. You want an interesting woman. She can be beautiful or not, but boring? Hardly.
Mars in Gemini
You have a sharp mind, and others see you as very witty, sometimes sarcastic. Since you are usually trying to do several things at once, you generate a great deal of nervous energy. With your restless nature, you start many projects but actually complete only a few. Your expectations of yourself are often overestimated, simply because you have so many interests and you are limited only by time! As a result, you may make promises that you are unable to keep. When there’s nothing much to do, you are exhausted. But if there are plenty of interesting things on your agenda, you can be a powerhouse! More than most people, you have a physical reaction to boredom.
With Mars in Gemini you need excitement and stimulation in order to maintain your interest in a love affair. You are attracted to partners who have mastered the art of intellectual lovemaking. Your partner’s mind must turn you on; mere physical attraction is not enough.
You are highly inventive and experimental in sex and have a very delicate, sensual touch. You may have more than one lover at once, although this is not a rule. You are often quite flirtatious, and you value words as aphrodisiacs. Talk turns you on, and you love to kiss! Oral pleasures are extra special for you. You love role-playing, as long as it is varied. To your lover, an intellectual conversation may interrupt lovemaking, but to you, it’s just extended foreplay. Sometimes given to trying too much in one session, you are enthusiastic and curious about all kinds of sexual expression.
Although Gemini is associated with multiple partners and indiscretions, you are unlikely to be a wanton lover. The Gemini tendency to over-think brings up all of the “buts” and “what ifs” surrounding sex. Truth is, you are less driven by your desires than you are by your intellect. You tend to channel energy through your hands, and your touch can be magic as a result.
Planets in Aspect
Moon opposite Neptune (Strength: 6.69)
You can become so engrossed in your surroundings that you lose yourself in it, escaping to your own illusion of reality. You are very psychic and can often have flashes of enlightenment that turn out to be quite accurate.
Personal relationships cannot be founded on illusion, however, and a successful relationship will require your undivided attention to the real situation. You must be able to compromise when necessary and to make adjustments to your partner-something that comes naturally. However, you have some emotional blind spots, and you may find that your idealism with regards to the female sex can cause a few problems. You may set yourself up for disappointment if you imagine that the woman you have found is “the one”. When reality enters the picture, you may be unnecessarily disappointed. If you learn to see her clearly from the start, disillusionment needn’t enter the picture.
The ideal partner for you would help you tell the difference between fact and fiction. You have a very active imagination and can use it to weave intricate sexual fantasies for you and your partner to satisfy. You have a tender, compassionate side to your nature that can be highly seductive with women. Your willingness to accept her fantasies and act them out without feeling threatened by them is a rare gift. You pick up on all that is unspoken, unfamiliar, and spiritual.
Jupiter square Saturn (Strength: 5.71)
You struggle with optimism and pessimism. When you feel hopeful, a little voice inside of you reminds you of negative possibilities. Sexually speaking, your drive is up and down. In youth, you may feel somewhat insecure about your performance. With maturity and experience, you learn that there is no reason to worry. You have a tendency to shoot down big plans by offering the realistic take on them. This can frustrate some partners, especially those who dream big dreams and don’t really want to hear that they are unattainable!
Mars sextile Jupiter (Strength: 3.84)
You have tremendous personal resources with which to achieve your goals. Although the goals you set for yourself are likely to be somewhat ambitious, you are willing to work hard to see that they are achieved. Ever since you were a child and learned to invent indoor games to amuse yourself, you have steadily worked at developing your intellectual skills. This prepared you to deal well with competitive situations in your adult life.
Communication is important to you. Your dramatic delivery and flair for using the right words make you a formidable opponent in any debate. It is particularly difficult to win a debate with you because you only present information that is well documented and convincing. You also use this skill to come to the aid of others who cannot defend themselves intellectually, which is admirable indeed!
Others admire your confidence and straightforwardness. You respect others who stand firm on their convictions and have high ambitions. It is important that everyone who deals with you does so with honesty and integrity.
In your love life, you appreciate a partner who is intellectually strong. You have a strong sex drive, but without the mental component, no relationship will last very long. You also seek a partner with spiritual consciousness. Your warmth and enthusiasm on a sexual level is apparent, and you don’t tire easily. Your interest doesn’t fade easily over time.
Moon trine Pluto (Strength: 3.67)
You are very optimistic in your approach to life and truly enjoy living. Your feelings are quite intense, but you keep them under tight control. You love with your whole heart and soul, and your friends know that they can depend on you. You love friends for themselves, not for what you expect them to be or for their outside appearances. Your psychic abilities are well developed, and you may be able to prophesy the future at times.
You will be a Rock of Gibraltar for your mate, and you will be the one who most often is the shoulder to cry on. You will probably be stronger emotionally than your loved one. Your mate may need your love in this respect.
You love children and can derive much joy from them. They feel comfortable in your presence, and you can be quite protective of those in your charge. You have an ability to deal with emergency situations and maintain your cool, which is very reassuring to children.
You feel obliged to serve others and could do well in fields such as: public relations, financial consulting, vocational advising, physical therapy and social welfare. You understand how to handle money and could be a good manager. You understand what motivates people and could do well in any occupation that requires public contact.
Mercury trine Mars (Strength: 2.97)
You are a stimulating conversationalist and inspire others with your knowledge, wit and enthusiasm. You have an easy-going nature and are friendly to most everyone. As a friend, you are trustworthy and reliable and would never divulge the secrets of another.
Because you can tolerate the flaws and hang-ups of others, people enjoy having you around. You do not feel compelled to interfere in the lives of loved ones and expect the same respect from others. You seek a mate who is as creative and inspired as you are and who shares a common life goal. When you argue, you rarely “lose”. Your intellect is so sharp, your wit so quick, and your argumentation crystal-clear, that it can be hard for someone else to have the last word. Your conversations are lively and delivered with enthusiasm.
Sun square Moon (Strength: 2.89)
It may seem to you that you are required to make great concessions in order to achieve your goals in life. You may feel that you are continually forced to prove your worth to people in your life. You are prone to arguing and you can be quite defensive, making it hard to reason with you at times. This stems from your own emotional insecurity and can only be remedied by your willingness to compromise.
As in all other areas of your life, you must be willing to invest just as much as you hope to gain. You are probably one of the most experienced of lovers because of your desire to prove your competence. Relax and enjoy the good things in your life. You can be much too hard on yourself.
This aspect suggests an internal “war” between two equally powerful desires: the desire for emotional commitment and the desire for autonomy. You can be quite defensive and even belligerent with others, and often over-sensitive, which can take its toll in personal relationships. Partners may complain that you often seem to be spoiling for a fight, and relationships can be turbulent until you learn the art of compromise. The urge to form meaningful relationships is powerful. You may marry early as a result.
You experience a struggle between your need for nurture and your need for independence. When you get the autonomy you seem to crave, you feel unsupported by others. When you receive the support you crave, you feel smothered. This internal clash is most apparent in your relationships, especially in the first half of your life when you may not be aware of these patterns.
Confrontations and challenges are frequent–not just with romantic partners, but also on the job, with friends, and so forth. However, you possess a lot of drive and spunk. You are resilient and never shy away from a confrontation or a challenge.
Sun square Neptune (Strength: 2.58)
You may struggle with early conditioning that made you feel tossed aside or neglected in some way, and certainly not directed and supported. You are very sensitive, especially with regards to any real or imagined blows to your ego. You may have a tendency to engage in escapist and self-destructive fantasies and/or habits. It is useful to be able to connect these behaviors with their probable source, which is likely to be a weakly defined ego and identity in childhood. Your parents may have misunderstood your need to assert your own individuality and tried to curb your self-expression. In self-defense you may have built emotional walls around yourself to shield you against others who would hurt you.
In matters of love, be realistic about your expectations of your partner; don’t ask the impossible and therefore set yourself up for disappointment. If you are unsure about how to assert yourself in your relationships, let your partner take the lead and then react accordingly. Building a successful relationship will be a gradual process for you; don’t rush in without looking at least twice.
Relationships for you may be somewhat chaotic at times. It is relatively easy for you to be “seduced”, and your fantasy life is robust. You can sometimes be quite vague about where you want to go with a relationship. You resist defining things, and this can be frustrating to many women! You are changeable and you dislike placing boundaries and drawing lines when it comes to human relations. Others may see this resistance as unwillingness to commit or they may even accuse you of being vague and elusive.
Venus trine Mars (Strength: 2.43)
It is easy for you to attract attention of the positive kind. You radiate charm, vitality, and enthusiasm on many levels, and others appreciate this energy. Not inclined to try to cover up your flaws, you have a way of presenting yourself in a straightforward manner, and your ability to admit your mistakes and your fumbles only adds to your charm. You find it easy and natural to get along with both sexes equally. You are warm and affectionate and are generally a very pleasant companion. Your willingness to compromise prompts others around you to return the courtesy. You are outgoing and friendly without being overbearing, and people generally respond to you positively. You do not ask anyone to do or be anything that you are not willing to do or be yourself.
You generally are more than willing to overlook others’ faults. Your partners find your self-confidence contagious and know that you will normally respond to them with understanding. You tend to bring out the best in people. This is perhaps because they do not find you threatening and therefore do not criticize or attack you in self-defense.
Others seek you out to join in their social activities, and you are a cheerful addition to any party. You will certainly help out any friends in need, but you may wait to be asked before butting into their private life situations. Be careful not to be used by love partners who will take advantage of your loving, generous nature.
Your attitude about sex is a healthy one, and you have few hang-ups in this area. Although you are not wildly experimental in sex, this is not because of inhibitions. You just don’t feel the need to get so fancy and way-out about sex; you’ll take yours nice and simple.
As a matter of fact, you could simplify sex for others and help them work on their own inhibitions. You may have had your first sexual experience at a younger age than most. In general, you don’t have a problem finding sex! You don’t understand the “war between the sexes”, simply because you are not at war with your masculine and feminine sides. It’s all foreign to you.
You exude a wonderful energy that is charismatic and attractive. Your attractiveness is not of the “in your face” variety. It’s completely unaffected and never offensive. Your relations with the opposite sex are rather carefree and natural. The process of “selecting” a partner is easy and instinctual for you. Sexually, you have an innate feeling for rhythm and excellent timing.
Mercury sextile Jupiter (Strength: 1.13)
You have a very active and sharp mind. You become bored easily and must constantly satisfy your unquenchable thirst for knowledge. You also seek to practically apply this knowledge and can exercise sound judgment in doing so.
You demand that others deal with you truthfully. You cannot stomach irresponsible actions of elected officials. You recognize the potential danger of using knowledge to control or influence others.
You would do well in a career of public relations, public speaking, education, history, journalism and writing. You delight in the constructive application of knowledge and would be a natural at setting up banks of knowledge or libraries. You could be a very inspiring teacher and could encourage much growth in your pupils.
Travel would be a very educational experience for you and would expose you to the cultural differences between people of different nations.
You may not belong to an organized religion, but you do have your own personal belief system. Still, you would not force your beliefs on others and are always open to hearing someone else’s views.
You are very creative sexually and should not be afraid to indulge in your favorite mental fantasies. Try this the next time your sex life becomes routine.
Balance of Elements and Modalities
You are logical and rational, and live in the mind much of the time. Words spoken during intimate moments are important to you. Words can be powerfully seductive. A lover who normally uses non-verbal communication between the sheets is hard for you to “get” to, and may not understand your need for verbal expressions of passion. Let them know how much you value the spoken word. At times, you may not reach the levels of passion that you’d like to. If this is the case, remember that it is likely due to your analyzing the moment instead of living it!
In your case, the heart often rules the head. Your emotional drives are strong and you act primarily on the basis of your feelings. Whether your feelings are purely personal, interpersonal, or transpersonal is up to you, but generally you are a life-oriented person who feels keenly and who acts to support your family, friends, and community. You are happiest when you are in a caring relationship with a significant other. That person should be comfortable with the emotional closeness that you bring to relationships, while providing the structure or inspiration that you need.
Some of your friends will not be as comfortable with emotional closeness as you are, and you will have to respect their boundaries. You have probably learned over the years how to keep your sensitive nature from being hurt. Don’t permanently withdraw, but find the people with whom and the environment in which you can be yourself.
Because of your sensitivity, you easily pick up others’ thoughts and feelings. You can anticipate others’ needs before they have expressed them. You can usually rely on your intuition when it comes to forecasting the outcome of personal and career decisions. If you decide to use your psychic abilities for healing, learn to let go of the negative feelings that you process from others. Since you are so sensitive, find quiet moments for private introspection in which you can reconnect with what you feel instead of what others feel. You also find it revitalizing to be around large bodies of water.
You do have a need to stop and think things through before acting. Make the effort to communicate with others who may have a more objective viewpoint or who could see solutions that elude you. You can sometimes be criticized for acting from a purely personal perspective, which you could avoid by learning and respecting society’s larger viewpoint. You can be very creative in finding paths to your personal goals. Keep the larger viewpoint in mind and later you will not have to try to rationalize to others why you chose those paths.
Lack of Earth
You are not always the most practical person, and you would benefit greatly from a partner who “takes care of business”. You are often on the move and you don’t understand people who stay in one place or who get themselves into ruts.
Lack of Fire
You are willing to let flashier individuals take center-stage and lead the way. You can sometimes be quite detached. More fiery, impassioned lovers may find this frustrating! However, your objectivity can be valuable to such partners, and they may be in awe of your ability to keep your cool.
With an abundance of planets in Mutable signs, you adapt easily to changing circumstances. Life seems to offer you a succession of roles to play. Skilled at diplomacy and compromise, you make a good negotiator and appear to be everyone’s friend. You actually are other-oriented, rather than self-oriented, and can be so busy meeting others’ needs that you lack direction in your own life.
Concentrate on finding friends of true worth and value. Be discriminating in your associations, in whom you choose to help. The endless flow from your mind, tongue, and hands will then work to return real value to you, which is what you deserve.
You can probably only follow this advice just so far, though, because more than others the Universe sends you people in need, people for whom you are able to make a real difference. The assistance that you provide to the powerless may actually be remembered long after your facile mental output is forgotten. Because you are sensitive to others’ needs, you need to choose your partners wisely!
Moon Dominant (Strength: 16.40)
The world of your emotions is a dominant energy in your life. Your heart rules your head. A lover who does not appeal to your emotions, your need for nurturing and to nurture, and your sense of belonging will not get very far with you!
