Sky Within is a unique personality computerized report as its text reads like a narrative.
Steven Forrest is one of the finest practicing astrologer/authors working today. His sense of an individual’s character as symbolized in an astrological chart is deeply intuitive. His writing reflects his caring sense of the unique spiritual nature of each being and their important place on this planet. He gently guides the reader through a very personal introduction to themselves, often identifying characteristics, talents, and potential that a person may not have previously expressed, but innately felt.
A Sky Within computerized report is like a conversation with a trusted friend. It is filled with truth and presented in a manner that allows the reader to acknowledge those truths about themselves that may not be readily revealed to even the people closest to them.
This report is recommended for those seeking spiritual reassurance and internal guideposts to universal harmony.
Features/Limitations of this report: Please always keep in mind that these reports are computerized. They are personalized to your birth data so that they are written about your unique personal chart. This report differs from many other natal reports in that it doesn’t list the influences one after another. However, it does discuss astrological elements which not all customers want to read (they are instructional for those people learning astrology). Please see the sample before ordering, as it gives a strong idea of the format.

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.

YOUR TEN TEACHERS
Freud divided the human mind into three compartments: ego, id, and superego. Astrologers do the same thing, except that our model of the mind differs from Freud’s in two fundamental ways. First, it’s a lot more elaborate. Instead of three compartments, we have ten: Sun, Moon, and the eight planets we see from Earth. As we’ll discover, each planet represents more than a “circuit” in your psyche. It also serves as a kind of “Teacher,” guiding you into certain consciousness-triggering kinds of experience.
The second difference between astrology and psychology is that astrology’s mind-map, unlike Freud’s, is rooted in nature itself, just as we are.
The primary celestial teacher is the Sun. What does it teach? Selfhood. Vitality. How to keep the life-force strong in yourself. If the Sun grew dimmer, so would all the planets — they shine by reflecting solar light. Similarly, if you fail to stoke the furnaces of your own inner Sun, then you’ll simply be “out of gas.” All your other planetary functions will suffer too.
How do we learn this teacher’s lessons?
Start by realizing that when you were born the Sun was in Cancer.
Opening the inner eye, mapping the topography of consciousness, learning to express compassion — these are Cancer’s evolutionary aims. To assist in that work, Cosmic Intelligence has cranked up the volume on the Crab’s ability to feel. No other sign is so sensitive — nor so vulnerable. A certain amount of self-defense is appropriate here; after all, this world isn’t exactly the Garden of Eden. Trouble is, legitimate self-defense can degenerate into shyness or a fear of making changes. You really do care about the hurts that other beings suffer. That’s good news. You also have an instinctive ability to soothe those hurts, homing in on the source of the pain. More good news. The bad news is that you could choose to remain forever protected within the safe (and invisible!) role of the Healer, the Counselor, or the Wise One.
With the Sun in Cancer, you feed your solar vitality by finding a role in the world in which you address the hurt in the lives of other beings. You become a nurturer or a healer of some sort.
You also need to make sure that you have enough real intimacy and quiet, private time to “nurture the nurturer” — yourself, in other words.
Those methods strengthen your sense of identity. They trigger higher states of awareness in you. If you don’t express your soothing wound-binding instincts, all the glories of the world would leave you feeling like an imposter in your own life. And without quiet time and naked intimate honesty, you’ll quickly burn out on playing the role of everyone’s psychotherapist.
Like the crab, you’re a vulnerable creature who’s evolved a shell. That’s fine and necessary.
But again like the crab, you must eventually shed your shell and grow a larger, more inclusive one, or you’ll be awfully cramped.
We can take our analysis of your natal Sun a step further. When you were born, that solar light illuminated the Sixth house. What does that signify?
Start by realizing that Houses represent twelve basic arenas of life. There’s a House of Marriage, for example, and a House of Career. Always, we find an element of “fate” in our House structures; the “Hand of God” continually presents us with existential and moral questions connected with our emphasized Houses. How we react and what we learn — or fail to learn — is our own business.
One brief technical note: Sometimes the Sun, the Moon, or a planet lies near the end of the House. We then say it’s “conjunct the cusp” of the subsequent House, and interpret it as though it were a little further along… in the next House, in other words.
Craft, responsibility, the joy of competence — that’s Sixth House territory. Traditionally, it’s the House of Servants. The label still works — provided you recognize that it’s not your butlers and chambermaids we’re discussing here! You’re the servant, and that’s not nearly as bad as it sounds.
There’s a myth in our culture that encourages us to believe everyone is automatically depressed on Monday morning, happy on Friday afternoon, ecstatic ’til Sunday around dinner time, then crashes down into the pits again come Monday. Don’t believe it! With a Teacher in the Sixth House, you’ve got a good shot at shattering the myth, at least for yourself. A big part of you likes to work, enjoys being good at something, prefers to be useful.
The trick lies in finding the right crafts, skills, and responsibilities. Let’s let the Teacher speak.
With the Sun in the Sixth House, you’re a hard worker, a responsible person who’ll keep promises and fulfill contracts. The trick lies in making sure they’re the right promises and the right contracts! Finding the crafts and skills that express your spirit is perhaps the central challenge of your life. Dignity and self-respect for you lie squarely in the world of work. To feel good about yourself, you must achieve excellence. And that revolves around self-discipline, humility, and locating worthy teachers… and has nothing at all to do with whether you get your face in People magazine!
The next step in our journey through your birthchart carries us to the Moon.
As you might expect, Luna resonates with the magical, emotional sides of your psyche. It represents your mood, averaged over a lifetime. As the heart’s teacher, it tells you how to feel comfortable, how to meet your deepest needs. While the Sun lets you know what kinds of experiences and relationships help you feel sane, the Moon is concerned with another piece of the puzzle: feeling happy.
When you were born, the Moon was in Libra.
Perfect equilibrium. That’s the spirit of the Scales. When Libra realizes its evolutionary aim, the nervous system is as still as a dark pool on a windless summer evening. Outwardly, Libran energy often looks as though it’s already there: it seems graceful and balanced, even unflappable. Inwardly, it’s another story: the Libran part of you is tuned as tight as the high string on a violin. Spirit gave you some advice back before you were born: don’t pluck it. And ..cont’d
