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 Square Jupiter: Prior lifetimes of great ease, luxury and what is considered “the good life” have engendered in you various tendencies which carry over into your present life cycle: a certain optimism, a taken-for-granted faith that whatever you need will be provided, and the inclination to generously and easily share whatever good fortune you possess. When acting from these instincts, you are very open and freehanded, though perhaps indiscriminately and extravagantly so. Out of this good-hearted, brotherly attitude you may support people or causes without thoroughly investigating them. Also from your incarnational past, there is the theme of having a big, warm family, many friends, and a wide range of social contacts. You were popular and influential in a social sense. An involvement in politics, law and/or religion (to the extent that the church dictated and organized people’s lives) is indicated, and this carries over into the present as a desire for the same popularity and favor you once enjoyed. The desire to “do good” and contribute to the betterment of your fellow man is a positive expression of this, and you do indeed possess an instinctive knowledge of how to appeal to the masses. However, beware of taking shortcuts, acting from greed, or trying to get something with relatively no effort. Also, trying to “buy” friends or gain a superficial popularity in order to puff up your own sense of importance are negative potentials. A tendency towards excess indulgence in rich living, good times, partying, food, drink or splurging on “only the best”, needs to be held in check. If you manifest problems with your weight, water-retention, liver or gall bladder there may be karmic results of wastefulness and over consumption, the seeds of which were sown in your incarnational past. Moderation and temperance are needed, especially with fats and alcohol.
North Node in Cancer: In your incarnational past, your worldly ambitions, duties, or responsibilities took precedence over you. Discipline and rules were more important than emotion. Your growth direction now is to learn to trust, feel, and give and receive nourishment, care, support, and tenderness.
North Node in 12th house: A tendency to worry unremittingly, to be plagued by vague (and sometimes not so vague) feelings of guilt about under-performing, to lack faith and trust in a larger more spiritual plan, and to over-analyze yourself and others are some of the issues this position suggests. With this position, you need to put some faith in spiritual powers or the “big picture”, to let go of some of your fears that you are not doing enough, to love yourself and others with more compassion and understanding, and to be humble, feeling safe in the knowledge that you (and others) are not perfect. You need to trust and develop your imagination, as well as your capacity for compassion. Learning to let go of some of your obsessions with rules, details, and fears of not doing things perfectly will help you to achieve a greater sense of balance and to ease both your fear of failure and your guilty feelings.
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).
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.
Leo Rising: Everything you do is done with pride, creativity and a sense of your own uniqueness. The desires to be a shining star and to stand out as an individual color all of your interactions with the world. At best, this motivates you to excel, to achieve at the highest level possible for you and to be a bighearted, generous, magnanimous, and honorable person. Others’ successes and talents inspire you. You applaud and appreciate individuality, creativity and the spirit and joy of life wherever you see it being expressed. Warmth and benevolence flow from you and others are attracted to your heart, your radiance, your strength. You carry the qualities of the archetypal ruler. You are King or Queen of your realm.
If you express the lower side of this energy, however, the picture is much less lovely. You are terribly narcissistic, self-centered, excessively concerned with being impressive, respected and admired. You cannot share the glory and usurp the credit for others’ contributions. You want to “out-do” everybody else. You do not admit your mistakes, you are domineering and cannot let people get too close to you lest they discover you are not as great as you would like them to believe. You are either overly self-conscious or you have to put yourself forward and be seen and heard on all occasions. Your very presence dominates the scene in ways that more subtle, quiet individuals find intrusive. However, if other factors in your birth chart give you a sense of proportion, humility, and a genuine awareness of other people, these negative tendencies are much less pronounced. Your soul-function does involve leadership, or being “out there” on the stage of life in a significant way. You can be even more effective and fulfilled in this if you stay focused on giving from your heart instead of your ego.
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 Aquarius Your particular struggle has two faces. First, you can feel alienated from the mainstream of society, unable to comfortably be a part of things or to participate socially, disaffected and oppressed by society’s rules or the prevailing order of things in the world. A harsh social critic, you may feel like the lone-wolf, both longing for and refusing acceptance, inclusion and approval from “the group”. Your innate distrust of groups or crowds may prevent you from joining in activities you would actually enjoy. Depending on other factors in your chart, you are apt to feel either painfully isolated, or simply aloof. You have an acute social conscience and are prone to feel personally guilty for the collective’s mistakes, or to try to instill guilt in others for the same. One negative tendency you also have is to blame all of your own problems on the ills of society, the corruption in the government, “Big Brother”, etc. You tend to focus on the gloomiest aspect of the world scene, and to fear the worst.
The other side of the coin is a tendency to stifle your uniqueness in order to fit in. Being acceptable and conforming may become overly important to you, so much so that you intensely dislike anyone who deviates from convention or is “weird” in any way. If you find that this is the case, know that you are actually fighting an aspect of your own inner self. You could also become a “joiner”, overly identified with social causes to the neglect or determent of your other personal interests or relations.
Saturn in 7th house: The whole arena of marriage, cooperative partnership and committed one-to-one relationships is where you meet some of your most frustrating and difficult challenges and also where there is great potential for soul growth.
There may be a long delay of marriage, either by choice or simply because you never encounter “the right one”. Or, you may marry or form partnerships with people who cannot be fully available to you or meet your emotional needs. You may marry out of a sense of duty, obligation, proper form, or for security instead of joy. Often there is a karmic marriage (or a series of them) in which you seem to bring out the worst in one another. Actually, this may be the basis of your avoidance of marriage: the unconscious awareness that once you commit yourself, you will have to confront your own personal demons, weaknesses, flaws, and fears. Thus, there is a sense of heaviness in your heart and mind around marriage or commitment.
In any of your close partnerships the “other” will reflect back to you your own inadequacies. If you are willing to become more conscious and to claim your own problems instead of blaming the other person, you will heal and become more whole through your marriage or other committed relationships. If you are not willing to go any deeper than “this person is not making me happy”, loneliness and dissatisfaction are apt to be ongoing. This is not to say that you should martyr yourself upon the altar of marriage or stay in an abusive or painful situation, simply that “for better or for worse” will entail, for you, a good bit of both.
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 Mercury: Your mind is serious, deep, and critical. Basically pragmatic and conservative in your thinking, you require concrete, empiric evidence to justify a belief.
You can be very one-sided in your thinking, full of doubt, disbelief and skepticism which effectively filters out any information that might enlarge your view of reality. Mental habits that can severely limit you are pessimism, harsh or exacting perfectionism, and a kind of superior judgmental attitude toward those who are less intellectually discriminating than yourself. On the other hand, you may worry that others are more intelligent than you are. On a social level, you may find it difficult to make amiable, superficial chit-chat, and may unintentionally keep potential friends, allies, and opportunities at bay. At its worst, severe shyness or a kind of social phobia may develop. Problems with speech or hearing, and an inner reluctance to communicate or listen are also possible. Consciously using humor, comedy or “laugh therapy” on a regular basis would be very beneficial to you, lightening your mental burdens considerably. Listening to light, playful flute music, bells or chimes can also be helpful. The development of a basically positive, optimistic philosophy of life would enable you to lessen the effects of a mental patterning that is frequently intolerant, overly cautious, or fearful.
The wearing of sapphire can help activate the more positive qualities here: mental concentration, depth, focus and clarity.
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.
Mars Conjunct Uranus: You are like a very high-spirited, temperamental horse, full of great energy and drive, but also impulsive, erratic, fitful, and prone to sudden starts and stops. Also there is within you a fierce independence, a strong craving for freedom, and at times a fiery rebelliousness. If you have free rein, you can be relatively happy, though not ever completely “settled” or contentedly serene for long. Under conditions that are too structured and constricted, however, you are more apt to blow up.
When out of balance you are prone to express yourself in ways that can have negative karmic consequences, such as: irritable impatience and a volatile, unpredictable temper (which can affect your health as well as damage the trust and quality of your relationships); intense restlessness (resulting in an inability to persist with a project long enough to see it through to completion); a complete unwillingness to cooperate or compromise (which also can undermine relationships, particularly with authority); physical recklessness (which an lead to accidents); and/or the inclination to ignite controversy and unrest in your environment. Because of your high (if somewhat unstable) energy level you are apt to forge ahead, oblivious to the fact that you are running right over the people around you. You may believe you are your own law or are above the law. Too much attachment to action and to being right are also potentials within you.
Learning to slow down, developing patience and the capacity to wait and cultivating a more steady, peaceful spirit will enable you to express the higher creativity, originality, and inspired passion of which you are capable.
Mars Conjunct Pluto: In this lifetime you must confront the nature of power, and you have the opportunity to transform your relationship to power, clear away deep-seated anger and resentment, and release karmic patterns of perpetrator/victim.
If, in your past, you have been the victim of aggression, ruthless force, or misdirected male energy – you may subconsciously fear or even hate men, have great mistrust of people in power or experience problems in sexual relationships (the arena where power/fear dynamics are often most apparent). In addition, you are prone to self-repression, either of anger or of your own strength. If you have very little energy, consider yourself a weak person, or become extremely uncomfortable when others express any anger, you may be holding down a great deal of hostility. Or, you may be angry all of the time “for no reason”. The question of appropriate expression of these intense energies is a delicate one. While repressing them can wreak havoc on your health and sense of well-being, you do not want to unload the deep rage of centuries on innocent people. You may hold your anger or aggression back not only because you fear repercussions (you may have been bludgeoned to a pulp in the past), but also because you sense that whatever is triggering your emotions in the present is not the real problem. In a word, you overreact. (Wanting to kill someone because they forgot to walk the dog is an overreaction).
On the other hand, you may carry an immense burden of guilt because you have been the one who misused your power, strength and/or sexual energies in the past.
Another way you may be expressing this energy is to be intensely and compulsively competitive, acting as if each and every event is a mighty struggle for supremacy, a contest with life or death consequences that you MUST WIN at all costs. You may become compulsively active and productive and driven to “succeed” at all costs. This type of thinking and being creates great stress on your physical, emotional, and spiritual bodies. Very likely it will also have a negative impact on all of your relationships. You will make a lot of enemies and actually force people to turn against you and bring you to your knees. Ruthlessness attracts ruthlessness.
Coming into balance with all of this is a major challenge. Finding a safe place to explore your war-like, destructive, and sadistic self can help. Another key is becoming sufficiently detached so that you can feel and acknowledge all of these energies, and choose when and how to express them without being “taken over” by them. If you are willing to become conscious, you can actually become a great force for good, and can heal and release some very deep wounds you have carried for a long time.
Jupiter Quincunx 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.
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.
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 Saturn: Your ability to concentrate on a task or goal for long periods of time are strengths you may take for granted. Coupled with this is an innate shrewdness, worldly wisdom, and ambition which enables you to achieve long range goals. Though you may (or may not) be idealistic and dreamy at times, you have a firm grasp of reality and of what it takes to operate successfully in practical and material terms. You want to be a “heavy weight”, a person of substance, someone to be taken seriously and so you are willing to do the work, delay gratification, and build something solid and enduring in your life. This capacity for self-discipline and for creating and maintaining stability in your life are gifts you can fall back on when faced with challenges in your life. Men, and particularly older men, will take an interest in your progress and prove to be a significant aid in achieving your life’s aims.
Moon Trine Pluto: You have developed, in prior lives, the use of your focused will and intense concentration upon a desired objective, qualities which are now more or less habits with you. In addition, you are capable of great depths of feeling, and of pouring out your heart and soul with unusual intensity. Your capacity to feel deeply and passionately is one of your strengths, and you are able to move others to emotional depths they might not have experienced otherwise. Because of this, you can exert a tremendous influence upon other people and may consciously or unconsciously manipulate them. Thus, your gift is a double-edged sword. If you use the intensity of your feelings and desires to bend others’ wills against their best interests, this can be your downfall. Your emotional fanaticism and passion, however, can also inspire and bring out other peoples’ intense feelings of devotion and desire.
You can be an excellent depth psychologist because you understand people at a profound level, their motives, their longings, and hidden reservoirs of emotion. Unblocking and uncovering suppressed feelings to promote a therapeutic catharsis would be one of your tools.
Moon Sextile Neptune: You are very much attuned to the feminine side of life, and this is one of your greatest assets. Your refined sense of feeling, your sympathetic understanding of others’ unspoken emotions and troubles, your receptiveness and your gentleness are all aspects of this. Because you truly appreciate (and even idealize) women, you tend to attract “angels” into your life, women who want to help you and who will support you on many levels.
You also have a pronounced feeling for music, and your moods and general well-being can be profoundly influenced by the music you listen to. You could compose and/or play music, but this is a talent you may take for granted.
Your psychic abilities are also highly developed, and could be tapped and further refined to the point of clairvoyance, telepathic communication, and so on. Periodically, throughout your life you are apt to have a deep involvement in mysticism, dreams, and inner exploration.
Mercury Conjunct Venus: There is a harmonious coordination between your mind and heart, between your intellect and your emotions. Intellectually, you are drawn to the study of the arts and the art of understanding and relating to people. Public relations or bringing people together, in some way, is an area for which you are naturally suited.
You also have a wonderful sense of form and design, of artistic arrangement, of how things fit together pleasingly and gracefully. Whatever you do is done with style and aesthetic appeal. However, you can spend too much time and energy on the superficial aspects of fashion and personal adornment, cosmetic appearances, light socializing and entertaining but frivolous pursuits.
Your speaking, writing, or singing voice is one of your gifts, and you might choose to wear or carry certain gemstones to heighten this ability, such as golden beryl, lapis lazuli, clear quartz crystal or emerald.

Introduction to Karmic Astrology
The effects of past life experiences can carry over into your current life, accounting for interests, habits, even phobias which would defy explanation by conventional methods.
This report examines possible past life connections using astrological methods. It is not intended to be taken as a complete interpretation of your birth chart; it looks at your chart from only one perspective.
It is written in simple language, avoiding the use of astrological terms as much as possible. For the interest of students of astrology, relevant astrological references are made at the top of each section.
There are certain factors which indicate a need to seek further answers through past life regression. If you find reference to this within your chart, you may discover that your spiritual growth will be enhanced by using this method. (Note: Individuals with a number of these indicators in the chart have probably already experienced spontaneous regressions.)
Not all charts will indicate a need for regressions. If your report does not indicate such a need, then it is most likely that discovering your past lives through regression is of little interest to you this time around.
Chapter 1: Most Important Prior Life Experiences
In traditional astrology, the Twelfth House represents your self-undoing, hidden matters and the subconscious process. It is believed that we carry karmic memories in our subconscious, and that these subconscious memories can undermine our current life efforts.
When we remove the walls created by subconscious fears and guilt, we find that the path to personal transformation lies beyond.
If, in your chapter you find a number of descriptions of planets placed in your twelfth house, consider exploring your hidden self through past life regression.
12th house cusp in Cancer
Your home is truly your “castle”. It is your sanctuary. You hide your emotional side to the outside world and only your family know your vulnerability.
Look for a significant prior lifetime as a nurse, farmer, homemaker, dietitian, servant, antiquarian or merchant. Growing, nurturing and collecting would have been important in your previous life.

You have strong leadership capabilities. You are dignified, proud, energetic and sometimes overbearing. Whatever you do, you do it with style and panache. How capable of showing your vulnerability will depend upon the influence of your significant prior life.
Chapter 2: Saturn (The Great Teacher)
The source of many of our self-imposed restrictions can be found in the placement of the planet Saturn. The location of Saturn in a horoscope represents the area of life where we have to learn the greatest lessons. It is through these lessons that we grow and improve.
Just like your least liked teacher in school, Saturn’s lessons require hard work and self-discipline. And like the lessons from that teacher, Saturn’s lessons are not easily forgotten. The lessons you learn help you to find order and security in your current life.
When a lesson from a prior life was not learned, you can experience inexplicable guilt or self-restriction. Exploration of the unlearned lessons of Saturn can free you to use all of your natural talents.
Saturn in 7th House
Your relationships, partnerships or any one-to-one association have a very serious quality. You may find yourself involved with older persons, authority figures. Your ideal mate is stable, conscientious and conservative. Frustrations can arise due to the passionless, “business-like” attitude either you or your mate express to one another.
Unresolved conflicts from a prior life usually involving a mate or partner may restrict you in this life. You have usually incarnated with this individual many times in an attempt to work out the guilt, frustration and rejection you and your counterpart feel.
On the positive side, you are able to resolve your karmic debts with another through compassion and forgiveness.
On the negative side, you may continue to blame others for your unwillingness to face up to responsibilities. You may find yourself marrying for social convention, status in the community or security instead of for love.
Consider your current attitudes toward love and marriage. Learn to balance your sense of responsibility and your need for a fulfilling relationship.
THIS POSITION HAS GREAT POTENTIAL FOR REPETITION OF PAST LIFE PATTERNS. IF YOU FEEL THAT THIS IS OCCURRING, YOU MAY FIND A PAST LIFE REGRESSION VERY USEFUL.
Saturn Square Mercury:
Mental discipline in a prior lifetime caused you much stress. In your current life you still demonstrate your analytical and organizational ability through your diligent work habits. You may have difficulties relaxing, and sometimes you feel unable to express your ideas to others. Learn the importance balancing work and recreation, for optimum health.
Saturn Square Venus:
A sense of duty was the reason for maintaining partnerships in prior lifetimes. This time, you find it difficult to accept the gift of love and consequently may feel very lonely. When you learn to appreciate your loved ones for whom they are, you will diminish feeling of isolation. Much of your stress in this life comes from relationships, either family or work, and you tend to direct that stress inward.
Saturn Trine Sun:
Duty to yourself and to others has been balanced in prior lifetimes, making you self-confident and assured in this one. Your past life memories help you to be a natural leader. Your leadership always has a practical nature, expressing your well-thought analysis of any problem. You work hard for all that you receive.
Chapter 3: Jupiter (Your Karmic Gifts)
Personal karma is not necessarily negative. You bring to this life certain talents and interest which enable you to expand your horizons. Often overlooked for its karmic value, the placement of the planet Jupiter in your chart can tell you about your karmic gifts.
Jupiter describes spiritual rewards as well as the area of your current life where you may experience material gains.
The lesson of Jupiter is best described as the acceptance of the law of karma. The rewards you reap in this life time come from your prior life’s good deeds, and your future benefits (this life or another) are the rewards of your present fair dealings and generosity.
Jupiter in Aries
Bravery and courage in the face of adversity in a past life has given you the ability to lead and take on new challenges.
Now it is time to lay down the sword and use your courage to better our human condition. Your past life as a warrior or explorer is reflected in your interest in military or medieval history. You may have been a knight in the crusades or a fighter against social injustices.
Jupiter in 9th House
You love travel, foreign countries, higher education and philosophic thought. In a prior life you were prominent in a traditional religious organization and your progressive and tolerant attitudes helped to bring a sense of humanity to the organization. Your gift from the prior life is that of continued tolerance and broad-mindedness.
Jupiter Square Moon:
In a prior life you found emotional and physical security based on your unquestioning faith in a rigid religious doctrine and strong devotion to a parent. This time around, you may feel the need to develop your own unique philosophy or again you may be attracted to an authoritarian religion, a cult or a guru. Parents or the parental home may be a source of stress.
Jupiter Sextile Sun:
Personal philosophies developed in your karmic past have given you a great deal of self-confidence. In other lifetimes, you controlled your ego by some form of religious discipline. This time, you can benefit from your prior lives’ lessons, as karmic memories are very close to the surface. You are cheerful, optimistic, courageous and sociable.
Chapter 4: Nodes of the Moon (Your Karmic Doorways)
The point on a horoscope chart called the North Node of the Moon is not actually a planet, but can be thought of as a doorway from your current life to your future. And, its opposite point (the South Node of the Moon) can be thought of as a doorway from your past life to your current one.
These two sensitive points can show you what goals you are concerned with in this life and what habits from prior lives are holding you back from reaching those goals.
North Node of the Moon in Cancer
Struggle and hard work in prior lifetimes has left you feeling that you need to spend this lifetime in a more nurturing atmosphere. In those prior lives, you achieved recognition through your persistent efforts and you often make your work in this life harder than it needs to be.
Achievement was the primary goal in prior lives, forcing you to restrain and control yourself, emotionally and materially. This time around you are learning to allow your feelings to surface and to loosen the reins on your spending.
Since your past life’s habits can surface at the most inopportune times, you are sometimes inconsistent in your spending patterns.
You have possibly spent prior lives as a prominent business person, a political leader, administrator of an institution (such as a school, prison or hospital) or in any area where discipline and accomplishment were valued highly.
In order to maintain the balance between your two karmic doorways, you need to awaken the feminine side of your being. Nurturing and your domestic life are requiring attention this time around. You have received much from others in past lives. This time you must learn to give.
Chapter 5: Planets in Retrograde (Reversed Energies)
Planets in a horoscope chart which are marked as being in retrograde motion, hide or reverse the true energy of that planet.
From a perspective of past life experiences, this usually means that some experience in a prior lifetime was so negative that the individual refuses to use that planetary energy in any manner.
You have a great deal of inner reserve. You are very serious about completing everything you start, sometimes when better judgment would recommend abandoning a project. You have always appeared mature beyond your years.
In a prior life, you avoided or were unable to fulfill your responsibilities, thus leaving many things undone or partially complete.
Your lesson in this lifetime is complete your projects and live up to your responsibilities. You have a great deal of wisdom from prior life experiences which will help you to teach others the value of completion.
Sometimes you find it difficult to determine what is real and what is not. You have a vivid imagination and you find comfort in your daydreaming and fantasy. Although it may not be recognized as such, you have a psychic gift.
In a prior life, you may have used illusion and delusion to take undue advantage of others. You were attracted to things psychic and may have even represented yourself as a medium or even as a magician. In this lifetime, you are still drawn to psychic and occult matters.
Your lesson in this lifetime, is to develop your real spiritual side. You may decide to use your psychic gifts for personal gain. If you do so, use them honestly, avoiding deception of others at all costs.

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.
