An Astrological Portrait
Prepared for Jennifer Lawrence
Your astrological chart provides an amazing guidepost to the most important aspect of your life: an understanding of yourself. As a woman today, you face the challenge of discovering yourself within the context of many life experiences. You wear a variety of faces and play many roles, experiences which can both enhance and complicate your feeling of satisfaction with yourself and your life. Your astrological chart provides indicators which help to define who you are, strengthening an understanding of your needs on every level. Each chart is different in its make-up, and the myriad combinations of influences help to underscore the importance of each person as an individual. One thing you must remember when working with astrology: it is through your free will that you make choices. Your chart does not “make” you do anything!We are finally acknowledging and realizing within today’s world, that men and women might experience life differently. The workings of your psyche, symbolized by your astrological chart, are likely to be experienced quite differently through your filter as a woman than they would be if you were born male. This report is designed for you, a woman in a world of change, a woman seeking to become whole. Your natal, or birth, chart is made up of several factors. Drawn upon a circular wheel, your natal chart shows the positions of the planets relative to your place, date and time of birth. Everything is indicated symbolically, with each symbol having specific meanings. The planets, Sun and Moon are placed around the circle, and each is placed within a particular degree of a sign of the zodiac. The planets, Sun and Moon are energy bodies, and the astrological signs indicate how these energies work. Just as you are a complex of feelings, needs, drives and desires – your natal chart maps these qualities. You will also notice that the planetary symbols fall within particular segments of the circle. These segments, called “Houses”, indicate the specific environments and relationships which are part of your life. You may find, upon reading your report, that there are a few contradictions. For example, one factor may indicate independence, while another shows strong dependency. It is not unusual to experience contradictions within yourself, and that is just what your chart illustrates about you! But when you reflect upon these qualities within the context in which they are explained, you may discover some self-illuminating facts about yourself. Self-understanding has a marvelous way of emphasizing your personal power!
An Overall Glimpse at Your Astrological Chart
The astrological signs are defined by one of four elements: fire, earth, air or water. The fire and air elements have a yang quality, and tend to be more outgoing and assertive in their nature, whereas the earth and water elements have a yin quality, and are more receptive by nature. The elemental balance in your chart is determined by the amount of energy within each elemental sign. The factors added together to find this balance of energy include the Sun, Moon, planets and the angles of the Ascendant and Midheaven.
Your chart shows a strong predominance of earth energy, indicating that you are a “show me,” kind of person. A practical, common sense approach to life feels most comfortable, and you’ll most enjoy life when you have your feet on the ground. You’re the earth mother type – with a natural inclination toward sensuality, practicality and conservation. In any situation, you prefer to build strength and stability and you may be oriented toward producing: at the end of the day, you’re much happier if you have something to show for your efforts. But be very careful of a tendency to narrow your vision to the dimension of the physical plane. There are multiple levels of reality! The elemental balance in your astrological chart indicates that air is a weak factor. With little or no air in your chart, you may have little use for the purely abstract. Your preference for things you can touch, taste or feel extends even to your choices in relationships and career, and long distance relationships can be difficult. Sometimes it can be difficult for you to adjust to new ideas or new people, and you may have trouble with objectivity. Even though you may be comfortable staying inside yourself for periods of time, you do need to connect and let others know what you think and feel. In fact, once a connection is made, you may even feel enlivened by sharing and opening up. But idle chatter can get on your nerves.
Another aspect of your basic nature is determined by the balance of the modes in your chart. The modes are also defined by sign, which are grouped together as either cardinal, fixed or mutable. Your chart indicates a balance between the cardinal, fixed and mutable modes. This shows that you may have a strong ability to get things going, maintain your inspiration, carry through with your commitments and complete projects. Your ability to deal with different styles and human diversity enhances your spirit of cooperation, and makes you a good choice for leadership positions.
You may also be concerned with the areas in your chart which appear to be empty. Never fear, these houses are not really vacant! You are just not placing as much emphasis in these relationships or environments, or you may be satisfying these needs through other dimensions of your life.
Projection of Your Real Self
Sometimes showing the world who you really are is not easy, and sometimes the world may not respond as you had hoped! It’s helpful to take a look at the differences and similarities between the attitudes, impressions and images you project and the person who resides at the core of your being.
With your Sun in Leo you’re likely to radiate a sense of regality and power, even if you’re just sitting at home in your old jeans. Although you may not demand to be the center of attention, you can certainly carry it off when the spotlight is on you. You’re driven by a need to create and express yourself, and enjoy playful people and situations. When challenged your pride can get in your way unless you develop some objectivity about yourself, which can be a tough job if you’re too self-absorbed. It’s okay to think of yourself as royalty some of the time, but just remember that others may not see you that way!
Your Ascendant is the face you present to the world, and shows how others see you. Your Ascendant, or rising sign, is Sagittarius. You’re likely to project the image of an adventurer, and may be most comfortable when you’re dressed for play or sports. But you can also have an air of classical elegance or wealth about you. Your manner can be quite direct, and others may sometimes see you as loud, boisterous or messy if you’ve gotten out of control! You prefer to show an attitude of optimism, and may be known for your sense of humor. Others may never know when you’re feeling low.
Jupiter, the planetary energy associated with your rising sign, is in Cancer in your chart. You may be most at home with people you know well, like family and home-town friends. This quality quietens your Sagittarius Ascendant a little, and you might prefer to hold your adventures near the home front.
The energy of Venus is in a supportive trine aspect to your Ascendant, providing a strong base of inner strength which is the result of a positive self-image. You may also find it easy and natural to support and compliment others, since your own self worth may not be in jeopardy from such demons as jealousy. Although you may not like highly competitive situations, you’re usually capable of rising to the occasion when you do need to prove yourself. Your sense of artistry and eye for refinement are always noticeable, and you may choose to develop your talents as part of your life path. But you may also need to be on the alert for tendencies toward laziness and self-indulgence. Just loving the best things in life is sometimes not enough to have them all the time!
With Jupiter in a trine aspect to your Ascendant, your jovial attitude can win a lot of friends. You prefer to laugh, and can be counted on to see the optimism in most situations. By developing your sense of humor, you’ll go further toward achieving your personal aims. You may also enjoy circumstances which give you a chance to inspire others. You can be an excellent promoter.
With Saturn in semi-square aspect to your Ascendant, your pressing need to keep yourself (and everything else) in line can become a little frustrating. You may find it difficult to get away from the feeling that you are always being judged or criticized, and may even choose situations, like relationships, which constantly test you. You can alienate others if you’re trying to be too much in control or if you look for a scapegoat when you need to take responsibility.
There are many different facets of the Moon in your chart. But when it comes to your identity, your Moon speaks volumes about who you are at the deepest level: the soul of your being. Your Gemini Moon adds a quality of curiosity to your personality. Your real self is driven by a need for experience a wide variety of situations, to explore the world of ideas and to connect to others through your mind. You are the ever-curious girl, regardless of your age: your mental attitudes can be forever young. Needing plenty of room to try out your diverse interests, you may be difficult to pin down.
Understanding Your Inner Feminine Self
Although the temptation is to think that just because you are a woman you are in touch with the parts of your inner self that are typically assigned to women, this is a much more complicated task than it appears to be! First of all, the model for the true power of femininity has been lost over recent history and is now becoming re-energized. Recovering this power is a personal task for each woman, and learning to use feminine power constructively on a collective level is another challenge for today’s woman. This process is the cradle of self-healing, and provides the essence of your personal security.
The primary energies associated with your inner receptive self are the Moon and Venus, but Neptune and Pluto are also significant in your experience and expression of this part of your psyche. The Moon is the energy which filters through your subconscious self, and tells the story of your connection to the part of you which provides nurturing, support, care and comfort. The person who projects the model for your Moon energy is often your primary caregiver or mother, and you see her through the lens of your own emotional matrix, signified by the Moon. As you mature, you learn to send this energy into the world, but to be truly effective, you must first own this energy and know how to use it to care for yourself!
Through your Gemini Moon your connection to the feminine aspect of yourself arises first through your mind. Mental stimulation keeps your soul alive, and as long as you are learning and feel that you are exposed to a wide variety of options, your sense of wholeness remains intact. Your approach to life may seem out of the ordinary to those who expect stale repetition, since the variation in life experiences you explore out of a need to see and do as much as possible may seem “unfeminine”. In many respects, you may present an androgynous quality, and may feel quite at home in situations or attire which incorporate both “masculine” and “feminine” elements.
You may love children, and have a special knack for communicating with young people. After all, you are the eternal child, filled with a sense of wonder and delight, and may find that spirit more alive within the young. But your lighthearted spirit can also be uplifting to anyone who shares a conversation or spends time with you. Because you are easily distracted, you might have difficulty maintaining a regular routine, or may even find it impossible to maintain the same relationship for long. A partner who is as open to new experience and exploration as you are can be perfect, but you have little patience for those who lack curiosity or interest. Your variety of friends, lovers, mates, careers and homes can lead to a feeling that nothing stays the same for long. Yet you can be consistent when something or someone holds your interest. It’s a pretty tall order, but after all, don’t you deserve something exceptional?
With your Moon in supportive sextile aspect to your Sun, you may enjoy a positive blending of the masculine and feminine elements of your psyche. As a result your ability to enjoy and relate comfortably to others can function more easily. With your subconscious emotional nature in harmony with your willpower, you can also be much more confident about seeking out experiences and relationships that fulfill your needs. You’re less likely to allow the needs and demands of others to overwhelm your sense of self.
Your Moon is in a square aspect to your Mercury, indicating possible difficulties in your ability to be rational. First of all, you do not have to be completely rational all the time – it is simply not possible. Now that’s said, when you do need to make an objective or impartial decision, you need to be very careful in your considerations. Those people in your life whom you’ve learned to trust and value can also be helpful sounding boards when you’re facing an important choice or dilemma. But you must also give yourself a chance to grow up and take the heat for your own feelings and needs. The problem is that your feelings run very deep. If you hold a particular prejudice, you may find it quite difficult to release it. When someone or something challenges the way you feel, you can be threatened. Criticism can be very wounding, and you may never recover if you cannot objectify a situation in which you are being critically assessed. If your attitudes remain stubborn and unyielding, you may become quite lonely. Spending time with children and dealing with their honesty can be exceptionally healing for you, and you may find that you really mature once you’ve taken on the role of mother. You may always feel stressed around people in authority until you become more flexible in your attitudes and less sensitive to the idea that you might occasionally be mistaken about a few things.
With your Moon in quincunx aspect to Saturn, you may feel a undercurrent of instability and insecurity. Vague fears can leave you with a feeling that you will never be quite settled or satisfied, and can inhibit your free expression of your power as a woman. You may have absorbed an attitude of fear of mistrust through the things you learned from your family or your mother, and may not trust your own ability to make your way through life. If you try to inhibit your feelings and needs, and operate from a sense of lack, then your frustration grows. And if you give your power to someone else by allowing them to make the decisions, take control, and rule over your life, you may feel secure, but the security is false, since you do not own it.
To change this unsettling tide of energy, you must spend some time reflecting upon your deeper needs, and may have to take a few risks by going outside the boundaries of your comfortable prison into the clear air of freedom. Finding your own power as a woman, accepting your strengths and limitations, and fully embracing your needs is not an easy task, but it is possible. Determining what you need to feel stable, alive and comfortable may also require that you let go of some of the traditions you’ve held close to your heart. It feels like unlacing a corset: you do, after all, need to breathe!
Your Moon is in the Last Quarter Moon Phase of the Lunation Cycle, symbolizing an element of conflict which is at the core of your personal growth and understanding. This cycle has often been described as a crisis in consciousness, since you may feel that you are turning away from the old and moving toward a new level of inspiration and understanding. The archetypal quality associated with this moon phase is that of the Warrior, stimulating a passion for existence which allows you to develop clarity, liberation and self-confidence. Through “The Warrior Woman,” you learn about fervent sensuality, courage and sexual freedom. Your experience of this ideological conflict may arise through your need to break away from false ideals and to reorient yourself to a new way of being, thinking and living.
What you learned from your mother and her generation about being a woman may not fit with what you are experiencing, although some aspects of your experience from her may ring true. The tricky part is finding your own way without totally destroying the path you’ve been taught. You are a revolutionary, and although revolutions can be radical and extreme in their outcome, they do not have to be entirely bloody! It is as though you have a fragile egg which needs to be moved to a different nest. First, you must create the new nest, then you must make the journey without breaking the egg, then you must settle in for a time. After that, it’s up to the egg.
Through the energy of Venus you express your feminine wiles, and also locate the part of yourself that needs to be emotionally expressive. Your sense of inner beauty and feelings of personal worth are also functions of Venus. Venusian energy is part of your connection to other women, and the placement of Venus in your chart can tell you a lot about your openness and acceptance of your own femininity. Although your Moon may indicate your basic emotional nature, the manner by which you express your feelings is frequently through Venusian energy.
Through the energy of Venus in Leo you radiate a powerful, attractive energy. Your flair for the dramatic may be seen in your elegant manner and sense of style. Although you can be at home in casual attire, you can wear the most luxurious evening attire in grand fashion, and certainly look marvelous in jewels. Your warm smile lights up your face, and you may also enjoy being in the spotlight. Certainly in your close relationships you like being the center of attention, and may pout if you are ignored. It’s unlikely that such a situation will last long, since you love life, and live to enjoy yourself. Indulging in your favorite forms of entertainment (and you may be quite entertaining yourself!) adds energy and power to your life.
You are quite capable of standing up for yourself, and probably have a high level of self-esteem. Even if other factors in your chart diminish your self-worth, you can rise above them through tapping into the source of love which burns deep in your soul. However, you can be a bit lazy and self-indulgent, and if you’re feeling hurt can go a bit overboard in this regard. Although you may take your time opening your heart, once you allow yourself to love, you are not likely to change your feelings. Even if a relationship ends, you may still hang onto it, although some of this can be a matter of pride. Anyone who has been the recipient of your warm hugs is not likely to forget you, since you do have a big heart and generous spirit.
The conjunction of Venus and Jupiter stimulates your generosity and ability to attract high levels of abundance. It may appear that you are quite lucky, and, at the very least, these qualities attract good fortune. Yet if you direct all this energy toward yourself, you can become quite spoiled. Your sense of “I want” can become rather self-indulgent, especially if you take people or situations for granted and expect that you will always have everything without having to assert much effort. If you allow this energy to flow in and out, giving and receiving, you’ll discover that you not only experience greater satisfaction, but that you know the true essence of an abundant life.
Although the planets Neptune and Pluto move very slowly and are generational in nature, they do have an influence upon your psyche. These energies define much about the collective experience which shapes your inner self. You’re experiencing Neptunian energy when you’re in the midst of reverie, when you’re deep in dreams and when you’re feeling compassionate. Neptune drives your imagination, the realm of illusion and your psychic sensibilities. Because Neptune is difficult to grasp on a physical level, there is a lot about this energy that can be problematic, and when you are caught in the negative grasp of Neptune, you can give in to addictive behaviors, escapism and deception manifesting. But you do have a way of channeling this energy. It is through Neptune that you find the heart of compassionate love and understanding. This is the doorway to your inner self.
With Neptune in Capricorn, you are part of the generation of young women born from 1984 through 1998 who will carry the torch for the new structure of modern society. It may be your job as a collective to bring order out of chaos. One of the primary dilemmas you will face involves the importance of productive lifestyles and responsible choices. You will also be surrounded by a large number of people who are of the “older” generation. Institutions (including government and educational institutions) can be especially powerful during your lifetime, so when you’re creating them try to be aware of the functions they can serve within society which will further the development and evolution of humanity.
Pluto represents the primordial essence. It is from this level that all transformation occurs: birth, death, illness and healing. It is also here that the powerful kundalini force continually regenerates itself. This is the space of all creation and all power. It is the space of origin: the Great Mother.
You are part of a generation of young women born from 1984 through 1995 who have Pluto in Scorpio, and you will play a key role in understanding the true nature of healing. The advances in medicine developed by your generation will have far-reaching effects on the quality of life. But you must also heal the environment, and may feel that you’re spending a lot of time cleaning up the mess wrought by the generations which preceded you. In order to assure the survival of humanity, you may have to face exceptional challenges, but you’re up to it!
Owning Your Inner Masculine Self
For centuries, women were not allowed to assert themselves in the world, and carefully learned the role of supporter of their “men.” Those who failed to respond in this manner were frequently shunned or punished, although there have always been women who defied convention! During this century particularly, women have broken out of their strictly “conventional” roles, and have been making their way in the world. Because of this, women have been successful at fulfilling more of their needs, and owning their own power more readily. As a result, a woman’s relationships have also changed. Despite women’s collective knowledge about the need to be whole persons, it still happens that we assign certain traits to others, and in our society, often to men who we believe “own” certain qualities. (They, in turn, might prefer that women own certain qualities – like emotions!) But to become truly whole and functional, it is necessary to find and incorporate your inner assertive self into your sense of wholeness, instead of projecting that part of yourself onto others in your life.
Through the process of becoming at home with your ego, you gain a true sense of personal strength and power. To own this power, you must learn to acknowledge that it is okay to be recognized for who and what you are. Your Sun energy is the primary factor in the expression of ego needs. As a young girl, you may have seen a father figure or other caregiver through the filter of your Sun. Their power of getting out into the world, and the manner by which they did it, have shaped your own sense of personal identity. And today, the Sun in your chart may in part symbolize other people. But this energy is, in itself, the core of your spirit.
Since you’re no stranger to the spotlight, you’ve probably had ample opportunities to express your assertiveness and personal strength. Your Leo Sun is a magnet for attention, and your actions and attitudes determine whether or not that attention is helpful or detrimental. You have the potential to radiate a powerful energy and may be an inspiration to those who need a stable source of confirmation that life is, indeed, okay. You can be intimidating to men who are unsure of themselves and may even take advantage of this; just try to remember your own insecurity when you first faced raw power! Taking on the challenge of leadership can be one of your most fulfilling experiences, although you can be quite domineering in some situations. If you’ve been giving away your power to others in your life, you have probably attracted strong-willed individuals. But to become truly complete, you must learn to embrace and express your own individuality in a manner which opens your creativity and fills your heart.
You may feel an undercurrent of anger that rarely loosens its grip on your psyche with your Sun in square aspect to Mars. This can be especially true if you’ve failed to address your needs to direct your own life. It is crucial that you come to grips with your feelings about people in your life who you feel may have had a lot of control over you. You may be fighting battles that are already won and can be belligerent or hostile, which can be alienating and self-defeating. Finding positive outlets to challenge yourself, like sports or other competitive games, will make a huge difference in the quality of your life. But the critical factor is knowing that you can get what you want once you’ve entered a level playing field.
You may underestimate yourself and your abilities, especially if you feel that you are being judged by those in superior positions. Your ego self is sensitive to being tested with your Sun in quincunx aspect to Saturn, but you know that you need to tests in order to become stronger. Allowing yourself to be noticed can be especially anxiety-provoking, and you might gain great benefit from developing your ability to be comfortable in front of other people.
You may feel that if you annihilate the power of control men have over your life, then you will own yourself. With your Sun square Pluto, you’ve always struggled to be in control, and much of the time, you’ve struggled against yourself. What you are seeking is transformation, not destruction. If you felt that you faced strong survival tests in the past, you may believe that your identity and will are damaged. You have the most amazing ability to regenerate yourself, and you can do it consciously. That means you can determine whom you want to become during your rebirth, and that is truly phenomenal. You’re also challenged to be aware of the manner in which you handle positions of influence, since your own misuse of control or judgment of others can easily backfire.
Mars energy is assertive, aggressive and combative, and can be angry. These should be but in our society are often not considered qualities that women possess. In fact, women who possess and project these qualities from within themselves often get bad names, and are called “ball-busters,” or other expletives. But to become fully whole, you need to accept the manner in which you can utilize your Mars energy so that you are confident and strong with it, and so you can get into the world and make things happen for yourself!
You may be stubborn. When you want something, you can be relentless in your pursuit of it. Through your Mars in Taurus, your embrace of the assertive side of your psyche projects a powerful steadfastness. You may not want to turn the world upside down. In fact, you may do your best to make sure that those things that are important to survival remain. You may also be more comfortable projecting your fighting spirit onto those who seem to enjoy that type of thing. Through this part of your self, you prefer to maintain the status quo.
Getting things done is usually not a problem for you. With Mars trine Saturn, you like to accomplish what you set out to do, and may do it with room to spare. This aspect symbolizes a positive, supportive connection between yourself and people in your life, since it also shows that you can be self-reliant when necessary, something anyone else will appreciate. You may also have excellent timing, but have to exercise it if you’re going to make the most of it!
It’s easy to be overcome by your compulsive desires with Mars in opposition to Pluto. You can be a relentless woman, never ceasing in your pursuit until you are satisfied. You can also give your power away to others by allowing them to dictate what you can and cannot do. If this stems from your survival needs, ask yourself if you deserve more than just surviving. It may be the result of not knowing how to trust yourself and your own abilities, or you could be trapped by your own shame or guilt. You have the capability of creating real healing and transformation through your actions. By clearing out your old traumas, you may even amaze yourself with the results you see. Start by saying good-by to that wounded little girl inside yourself who could not defend herself or her desires, and show her what she is capable of achieving.
Developing Your Mind
Education and learning are lifelong processes. Your approach to developing your intellect is multifaceted, but there are special indicators in your astrological chart which help you understand the best ways to develop your mentality. Improving and strengthening communication skills is also part of developing your mind, since connecting to others is certainly improved if you can effectively illustrate your point of view!
Although the energy of Mercury is traditionally considered to be the main indicator of your mentality, there are also other qualities which are part of your mental and intellectual self. First, let’s look at Mercury, which is the energy through which you link your thoughts and ideas with others. Your analytical powers can be highly developed through your Virgo Mercury, and you have a wonderful ability to maintain a practical perspective. Learning is easiest for you when you have practical experience and a hands-on approach to assimilating new information. You may also enjoy sharing what you know and can become an accomplished teacher. Although you may be somewhat critical in your judgment or assessment of people or situations, you may not intend to be nit-picking. Your eye for detail simply makes it difficult to ignore anything that is out of place or below standards. As a rule you try to keep an open mind, since you enjoy the experience of learning and discovering how things work.
Your need to be socially correct can get in the way of saying what you really want to say with Mercury in semi-square aspect to Venus. You may also be too sensitive to the way others communicate with you, and if confronted with harsh or abrasive behavior, may have difficulty dealing with the person or situation. However, this influence does stimulate an interest in developing you communicative and social skills.
Your ability to accomplish the things you set out to do is enhanced with Mercury trine Mars. You may be quite adept at learning new things rather quickly, and are not afraid to investigate new subjects. Mental challenges are positively exciting for you, and you may always be studying or investigating something just because you love the challenge. You may also be quite confident when addressing groups or presenting your ideas, and can stimulate others to follow your leadership.
Your ability to discipline your mind and complete projects is strengthened through Mercury in trine aspect to Saturn. This influence is quite helpful in educational pursuits, and you probably value the importance of education for yourself and for others. You may be a gifted teacher and can be an strong role model for those under your guidance.
Your imagination and creativity enhance your intellectual development with Mercury in trine aspect to Neptune. You may be a gifted writer, artist, actress or photographer– and whether or not you develop these talents, you have an excellent eye for that which is beautiful and enthralling. You perform at your peak in an environment which is serene and inspires your visionary manner of thinking.
Probing into the depths is fascinating to you. With Mercury sextile Pluto, you’re rarely satisfied with what you see on the surface. Consequently you are inclined to research, investigate and question. Complex ideas appeal to you, and you may enjoy subjects which challenge your mind.
The energy of your Moon also has a mental component. The Moon is the realm of thought, the process of subconscious thinking, and plays a strong role in intuitive thinking. Developing your mind is a high priority with your Gemini Moon, and your need for diversity can be a plus in learning situations. But you can also have trouble focusing your energy, and your distractibility can get in the way of learning. You can use this to your advantage by juggling your priorities, as long as you don’t let your distractions become more important than your responsibilities.
Jupiter also plays an important role in learning, stimulating you to look ahead into the realm of possibility, beyond the horizon of the now. Through the energy of Jupiter, you share what you know with others. As a woman, you are likely to feel most at home when you use this energy to encourage and support others, but you can also apply this to yourself! Your philosophical approach to life and learning may be very much like mother taught you with Jupiter in Cancer. Your adherence to some of the attitudes which shaped earlier generations has great value for you, and you may have a keen understanding of the importance of learning from history. Sometimes, however, your emotional attachment to your philosophies can get in the way of the essence of how and what you believe.
There are no major aspects to Jupiter in your chart. To a large extent, this indicates that the energy of Jupiter is empowered, because it operates without undue influence from others energies in your chart. Your personal philosophies, ideals and beliefs form a major cornerstone of your identity. The qualities of this energy may be an outstanding force in your life, and this is the energy which people frequently associate with your identity.
The purpose of Saturn is to provide clarity, structure, form and discipline – elements which are certainly important to learning. Saturn functions primarily as your inner teacher. Mothers are the most influential Saturnian models in western society. They provide the structure, guidance and support for their children in the realms of learning, socialization or personal growth. Once you enter society as a child, teachers play the Saturnian role. But the role of mothers and teachers in relationship to Saturn is to help you define the structure upon which you will build your life. Then, you “own” your Saturn, and know how to discipline and focus your own energy.
You’re likely to do whatever is necessary to help you accomplish your aims with Saturn in Capricorn. If that includes extensive education, then you’re on track, but you may also discover that the things you need most to learn are in the school of life. You can be highly disciplined, and may have a desire to achieve mastery in your chosen field. You also appreciate the practical side of life and might enjoy learning skills which help you maintain control over your life – like knowing how to change your own tires or repair a leak in the kitchen sink.
The areas of your chart which are connected most strongly to mental and intellectual development are the 3rd, 9th and 11th Houses. The 3rd House of your chart deals with communication and the development of concepts.
Developing your mind is a very high priority with Aquarius on the cusp of your 3rd House. Although you love to learn, you may not enjoy adhering to a particular structure in your education: you have your own ideas about what is important! However, you can follow the program if necessary, especially if it means you will ultimately be able to become more independent as a result. You can be quite opinionated, although you may like to think of yourself as humanitarian, and frequently take an idealistic stand (at least according to your family). With Uranus ruling this house you are concerned for the welfare of humanity, and you may also enjoy reaching out to make contact with the people on the planet.

Report Order FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions related to Report Orders
WHAT IF MY ORDER DOESN’T ARRIVE WITHIN 24 HOURS?
Reports are generally delivered within 24 hours of order placement, or if there were missing details, within 24 hours of the receipt of full information needed to generate the report(s). Occasionally, an order might arrive a little late if there was an unexpected influx of orders, for example, a power outage, etc.
However, if 24 hours have passed and you don’t find an email from Kristen – Cafe Astrology (reports @cafeastrology.com) in your inbox or spam folder, then please write and let Kristen know. Please understand that we make every effort to send your order, and if this is impossible, you will receive a refund.
Some people have problems with email delivery, particularly with emails that have attachments. In these cases, we can put the report(s) in a secure place online for download. If you prefer this method regardless, write Kristen an email with the request or add the request in the notes with your order placement.
HOW WILL I RECEIVE MY REPORT IF I WASN’T ASKED FOR MY EMAIL ADDRESS?
By default, Kristen sends report orders to the email address associated with Paypal. That’s the email that comes in with your payment and order details. You can specify another email address if you’d like, but keep in mind that a Paypal receipt email is automatically sent to the customer as soon as payment is made, and that email will go to the email address registered with Paypal.
SHOULD I USE 12 PM FOR AN UNKNOWN BIRTH TIME?
No, you should specify that the birth time is unknown rather than guess it so that the report can be created specifically for unknown birth times.
Although unknown birth time reports can be a little shorter than the reports with known birth times, they only include information that is known. Most importantly, the ambiguous information is excluded from the report.
Some people feel that they will get more for their money if they guess at the birth time, as they assume that more interpretations in the reports are better. However, it’s much better to have a shorter report with accurate interpretations than a longer report with a mix of accurate and inaccurate interpretations! In this case, less is definitely more.
CAN I ORDER A SOLAR RETURN (OR OTHER FORECAST REPORT) FOR A YEAR IN THE FUTURE/PAST?
Yes, absolutely. The start date of a report can be any date in the past or the future.
In the case of a Solar Return, the start date will be on or in the two days surrounding the birth month and day due to the nature of this type of forecasting technique, but the year of the report can be any year in the future or past.
In the case of the Time Line report, the software only allows the start date to be the first of any given month, for example, May 1st, 2017.
DO I NEED TO PAY WITH A PAYPAL BALANCE TO PLACE AN ORDER?
No, the shopping cart used on the site is run by Paypal, but all the usual payment options are included so that you can use credit cards, debit cards, and the like. There are different shopping cart technologies available to sellers, and Cafe Astrology has selected the Paypal shopping cart as its solution. All payment details are sent to Paypal and not to Cafe Astrology. Paypal sends Cafe Astrology an email with each order that lists the order details and email address, not any payment information. We are not set up as a merchant at this time.
WHY ARE THE PLANETS’ TRANSITS OF THE HOUSES IN MY REPORT NOT THE SAME AS THOSE OF YOUR HOROSCOPES?
Reports are based on your birth time, while horoscopes are based on solar charts. A solar chart places the Sun’s sign on the Ascendant, and most people don’t have the same Sun and Ascendant in their natal charts. While a solar chart is a valid chart and certainly has its merits, the natal chart should be the first you look at.
WHICH HOUSE SYSTEM DO YOU USE?
For reports, the default house system used is Placidus. However, you can request another house system for your order (example, Koch, Equal, Whole Sign, etc.).
WHY DO MY RESULTS DIFFER FROM THOSE FROM OTHER SOURCES?
It’s important to note that there are many different valid methods for arriving at various astrology calculations, including the Zodiac (Sidereal or Tropical), system of houses used, method of progressing the houses in the case of progressions, use of current or birth location for certain forecasting techniques, and many more. It’s rare that an astrology software program is making wrong calculations. Typically, discrepancies have to do with different systems and not about one or the other being “wrong.” When the Ascendant differs, it’s usually about an ambiguous time zone since we must use the time zone that was in effect at the time of birth and historical time zone information is not perfect. It is simply not true that any one particular software program has every historical time zone correct, although many efforts are made to get them right.
If you receive unexpected results, please send an email to Kristen who can look into the matter and explain the reasons for it, such as an ambiguous time zone or a particular calculation method. It’s important to provide as many details as possible.
WHY IS THE DATE OF MY SOLAR RETURN NOT THE SAME AS MY BIRTHDAY?
The Solar Return chart is drawn for the date and time of the return of the Sun to its exact position at birth, and not to the birthday itself. The Sun returns to its birth position once a year on or near the day of birth, and rarely coincides with the time of birth. For example, if my birthday is September 2nd, 1970 @ 5:00 PM, my Solar Return could be September 1st, 2016, @ 4:24 AM one year, September 2nd, 2017, @ 1:22 AM the next, and so forth. If the birth data is entered correctly on the report, you can expect the Solar Return date and time to be accurate.
HOW CAN I GET MY REPORT ORDER QUICKLY?
Report orders are promised within approximately 24 hours from the time of order placement and complete information required to create the report. Kristen sends out reports by email and she is at the report computer typically eight hours a day. Because orders and responses come in from all around the world at all hours of the day and night, rush orders are not possible. However, to prevent delays, making certain that you’ve included all information requested and that it’s accurate will prevent the need for email back and forths that will cause delays.
Typically orders are emailed out within 12 hours or so, but they do sometimes come closer to 24 hours. The most common reason is a sudden influx of orders. There are times when more than the usual number of orders come in and it takes much longer to complete orders.
WHEN DO I RECEIVE MY REPORT?
Within 24 hours of order placement, you should receive an email from Kristen, either as a request for further information or clarification if there is missing/unclear information or with a report attachment. If the information is incomplete, Kristen will request it from you and you will receive your order within 24 hours of receipt of the full information necessary to create your report.
DO I HAVE TO ENTER MY BIRTH DATA FOR EACH REPORT THAT I WANT TO ORDER?
If you are buying more than one report in one order, you can enter birth information only once if you prefer. However, it’s important to note that some reports require different or additional information, so be sure to supply all that is needed to create your reports.
