Astrology Chart Interpretation for Jennifer Aniston
Introduction The following pages contain an evaluation of key elements of your birth chart. In interpreting your chart, this report considers the sign of the planets and the north node in your chart, as well as their house placements. It also describes the sign of the Ascendant and the strongest aspects between the planets.
You may note that some of the following descriptions appear to contradict each other–and indeed we are all walking bundles of contradiction. If you examine yourself carefully, you will probably realize that you do in fact possess the qualities of both conflicting descriptions. Even though some parts of the reading may seem to clash, you will see that certain themes are repeated throughout the following pages. These are the ones that will become major issues in your life.
The readings stress that you are the ultimate decider of your fate. The stars may indicate the hand you were dealt at birth, but it is up to you to play that hand well enough to achieve your goals. Also, bear in mind that every “bad” aspect of a chart also has a “good” side. How it is expressed is really up to you. We tend to work at expressing ourselves more positively most of the time and only lapse into the negative behavior described when depressed, angry or scared. Or it is possible that some aspects may better describe your personality or behavior earlier in life. They may seem alien now because you have already worked through them.
A “Strength” number precedes each aspect description; this number takes into account how exact the aspect is, whether the aspect is a major or minor one, and whether an aspecting planet is close to one of the four chart angles. The higher the Strength, the more you are likely to feel the aspect and to act it out in your life.
Planets in Signs and Houses
Libra Ascendant You believe in justice and peace, and are forever trying to bring these forces into play in your life. When in balance, you are delightful to be with–gracious, good- natured and with a good sense of humor. But like the scales after which the sign is named, Libra dips wildly from one side to the other before attaining that perfect balance, and this results in restlessness, stubbornness and confusion.
People with Libra rising are usually attractive, charming, refined and cheerful. They enjoy socializing with friends in pleasant surroundings, and usually come to functions well- dressed. They deplore rudeness or vulgarity and always have time to listen to the concerns of a friend. You are an equally good conversationalist and are rarely at a loss for words. It is likely that you are artistically talented, such as in music or art.
You enjoy physical beauty in your lover, and are a very romantic and sensual lover. In your lovemaking you delight in all the trappings–incense, perfume, satin sheets. Just be careful not to idealize love too much. It is hard for someone to live up to such idealistic expectations. They are normal people who sweat and get pimples, just like you.
Physically, you are generally attractive and wear a pleasant, warm expression. You usually have dimples–if not in the chin or cheek, then in the knees. Quite frequently you have a beautiful smile, perfect teeth and curly or wavy hair. Your height is moderate to tall, and if you are not careful, you may be inclined to gain weight by indulging yourself. Your health is generally good, but be careful that you get enough liquids in your diet. Problem areas are the kidneys and skin diseases.
Sun in Aquarius When the moon is in the seventh house And Jupiter aligns with Mars,Then peace will guide the planets And love will steer the stars. This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius . . . This is a song from the rock musical Hair. That play and the change in consciousness of that period reflect the qualities of Aquarius: individuality, humanitarianism, freedom and brotherly love. Indeed, Aquarians go through life with one foot in the future, and many have been inventors or futuristic writers. Often misunderstood by their peers, they may seem eccentric or spacey. They love to fly in the face of tradition (and maybe even authority), and are very impatient.
Aquarians believe in dealing with others truthfully. But this is a gray area with natives of this sign–not telling all the truth is much different from telling an outright lie. Whether they like you or not, Aquarians will deal with you fairly and honestly. They practice their belief that all beings are equal. Yet, being a fixed sign, they can be enormously stubborn and strongly opinionated. They may even become intellectual bigots, looking down upon those who are not highly developed intellectually. Even though Aquarians will denounce discrimination, they do indeed have their own special prejudices–but they will be different from society’s norm (in other words, based on something other than race, creed, sex, etc.).
Aquarians can seem distant and aloof to their loved ones, who may feel as though they are being examined under a microscope or dissected. This is only the Aquarian’s effort to achieve objectivity by constantly scrutinizing everything about life. Actually, Aquarians are very understanding lovers; they tolerate others’ imperfections, and to others may appear to be a pushover in relationships. But they do have a point beyond which they will not turn the other cheek. Once this line has been crossed, the partner will have a hard time making amends.
In sex, you enjoy variety and inventiveness. Under the right conditions, Aquarians are capable of sustaining open relationships, where both partners are allowed to maintain friends (or lovers) outside the main relationship. Aquarians of both sexes would be most satisfied with a relationship in which both partners have equal autonomy. Otherwise, Aquarius will feel trapped and want out.
Sun in the Fourth House This house placement of the Sun gives you decidedly Cancerian tendencies, whether you have any planets in Cancer or not. You are attached to your home, old-time values and tradition. In general, security is important to you, and you probably believe in investing in insurance. This placement also favors the accumulation of real estate.
You may enjoy a quiet evening at home alone with a loved one much more than “doing the town.” Be sure that your partner shares this trait. You feel much more secure in your own familiar surroundings, and you are a connoisseur of well- prepared food (totally home-made, of course) and fine wine.
In love relationships, friendship is much more important to you than sex. You should grow to trust your partner and slowly build up to a sexual encounter; it is too unsettling for you when you act rashly.
Abundant Air You seem to live for mental exploration. Discovering and communicating the connections between ideas, people, and places is your function in life. Your active mind is good at identifying new frontiers whose basics you quickly master, so that you end up knowing something about almost everything. You have a dispassionate nature that cooly considers the pros and cons of a situation, able to place logic above personal emotion. From your mental viewpoint, emotions look irrational. You make a good negotiator, sales person, communicator, arbitrator, analyst, and information processor. Ideas flow quickly for you. While impersonal and dispassionate, you nonetheless thrive on communication and social interaction. At your best, you strive to understand and accept people, not to change them. Courageously, you adhere to principles. You appreciate culture, structure, and systems.
Your greatest strength is also your weakness, namely too much coolness from placing head above heart. Leaders must be able to follow their hearts without being indecisive or equivocating. And you ignore your real connection to others if you use your mental gifts to coldly manipulate them. Try to avoid isolation by functioning as part of a team in which your logic, analysis, and communication skills are put to good use. Work with others who may be more practical, sensitive, or passionate than are you. Don’t keep your good ideas inside, but write them down and communicate them to others.
Abundant Fire You are an active, future-oriented person who is not weighed down by past commitments. You take advantage of new opportunities better than most. Life for you can be a vibrant affair in which you passionately pursue causes, lovers, and experiences. You have the self-confidence to be a leader. Competitive and flamboyant, you have little patience for slow people or unexciting work. When an activity interests you, you can be very generous with your time, energy, and money. Find outlets for your gifts of creativity and intuition.
Watch out for a tendency to exaggerate or to be insensitive to others’ feelings. More cautious types may envy and resent your free spirit and competitive nature. You get bored easily and may depend on others to finish the projects that you start. When your warmth is guided by love, wisdom, and positive goals you have the ability to heal and inspire others, but when you focus on your self or lack direction, your short-lived passions can affect others in destructive ways.
Lack of Earth You may be so focused on the “bigger picture” that you have difficulty managing the many details of life. Balancing your checkbook or leaving your bedroom clean may seem beyond your abilities. Other tasks may be important, but you find it hard to concentrate long enough to complete them. Knowing your own lack of concentration and self-discipline, you may cling to established routines because you know that you are able to do important things through force of habit. If you do not flit from job to job, you could hold onto a job or a relationship for too long because you do not trust that you will be secure without it. Your lack of real world perspective may make it hard for you to distinguish that which really matters from that which is unimportant, so that you sometimes focus on small things while leaving the really big things undone. You may say that you care about money, but unless you have abundant planets in the houses of Substance, you will not execute a detailed plan to get it. If you can avoid driving them crazy, enlist the help of those more grounded than yourself in order to turn your inspirations into reality.
A lack of planets in Earth signs can be offset by an Earth sign ascendant or by abundant planets in the houses of Substance.
Lack of Water For you the world of feelings may be terra incognita. Close interpersonal relations, which require the expression of feelings, and empathy for others’ feelings, do not come naturally or easily for you. You have difficulty putting yourself in someone else’s shoes in order to feel what they feel. You will learn how to deal with life in a tough, mental sort of way. People looking for someone to empathize with them should not come to you. Those people who are comfortable with you are not looking for emotional closeness. It’s not that you don’t have emotions and feelings, but they do not come out easily in your relationships. If you are an artist, they may come out in your art. You probably take refuge from the difficulty of forming emotional connections by concentrating on intellectual, practical, or inspired activity. Your best companions would be those who are able to inhabit these realms with you, but who are also in touch with their feelings. They can help you to contact your own feelings and teach you to respect and honor other people’s feelings.
A lack of planets in Water signs can be offset by a Water sign ascendant or by abundant planets in the houses of Endings.
Moon in Sagittarius Persons with this moon placement know their own emotional make-up very well and are able to make required adjustments in life quite easily. They have a strong sense of direction in life and set high goals for themselves. Others are continually amazed as they set seemingly impossible goals for themselves and then go on to achieve them. The only danger is that they will become ruthless in their pursuit of success and reach the top with no friends to congratulate them.
Although they are good at combining business with pleasure, when the chips are down business always wins out. Lunar Sagittarians are eternally optimistic, even when they should be exercising caution instead. They are often dedicated to philosophical causes and may even participate in non-political revolutionary practices at home or in the office. They want to make a difference–to influence the lives of others.
Gambling is a potential problem with this Moon placement, and this is partially a result of over-optimism. Natives may believe that they simply cannot lose and therefore take unconsidered risks. Although they feel very lucky, they actually are not.
Romantically, persons with Moon in Sagittarius are great companions to their mates. They need more than just sexual fulfillment from their partners–they require romance and spirituality. If it is necessary to terminate a relationship, they do so quickly and cleanly without looking back. They know something better is waiting just around the next corner.
Moon in the Second House Good physical health and financial well-being are essential for your emotional security. You find nothing romantic about a love affair which requires you to live on a shoestring. You worry a lot about money and need to be able to express your concerns to your partner. Otherwise, resentment and disappointment will build up and will explode at the most inappropriate times.
You enjoy being lavished with expensive presents and tokens of love. This can be great if your partner can afford it. Just be careful you are not burdening him or her with your demands and your expensive taste. Material expressions of love are nice, but be sure you are not using them as a screen to avoid facing deep-rooted problems in the relationship.
You value honesty and integrity in a partner and have a strong set of fundamental values yourself. You treasure loyalty and stability in others. You need someone who can appreciate you and offer you a sense of direction through their stability.
This house placement often indicates a tendency toward financial fluctuations–ups and downs. You must learn to budget your resources, no matter how distasteful the idea may be to you. Your finances may have a “feast or famine” quality about them. Prepare for the “famine” by conserving some of the excess at times of “feasting.”
Mercury in Aquarius Mercury in the sign Aquarius has a reputation for being the sign of the genius, as many inventors and scientists have Mercury in this sign. You have a highly original and versatile mind, and you can put your ideas to work in a practical manner. It may be difficult for you to gain acceptance from your own generation for your ideas because with Mercury in Aquarius you are a futuristic thinker. In another 50 years, everyone else will catch up.
Although your friends are very special to you, it is important that you follow your own convictions no matter what others think. With your highly developed intuition, you also have the ability to see through the pretenses of others. You communicate your ideas very clearly so that others can easily understand even the most abstract concepts.
You have a well-balanced concept of human values and view life from the point of view of what is most helpful for the entire planet (or the Universe). You strive to remain detached and objective, so that your judgment can remain clear. This is a good idea, as long as your detachment does not become aloof coolness. You have a natural aptitude for science, both traditional and metaphysical. Since Aquarius rules astrology, Mercury in this sign indicates at least a curiosity about this subject.
Your friends will be your greatest source of mental stimulation, and you will choose friends from every walk of life. With your highly developed sense of intuition you may have psychic abilities, such as telepathy or premonitions. You have an excellent memory, and may be able to recall details of past lives with greater detail than others.
Mercury in the Fourth House You enjoy reading as well as writing, and you see the communication of ideas as an excellent way to expand your mind. Your home is a focus of attention in your life, and you probably have a difficult time getting settled, moving frequently from one residence to another. Young people will have a great influence on your life. You collect items for sentimental reasons and can become a “pack rat.”
Venus in Aries With Venus in Aries, you have a naive, impulsive approach to love. If you are not careful to take time to get to know someone, you may marry for pure physical attraction rather than for love and commitment. Since you tend to act impulsively in relationships, you can sometimes be inconsiderate of the feelings of others.
Your desire nature is very intense, and you desire a direct and impulsive lover. Although you are romantic, you are not necessarily subtle. You seek immediate gratification of your needs–in effect, move in for the kill. If a potential lover shows no interest, you will not wait around until they do. You approach each new love with enthusiasm and joy, enjoying every moment for itself.
Because you are harder to “tie down” than the average person, you would be better off with a lover who is more stable and patient than you. They would serve as an anchor to keep you still long enough to appreciate being grounded in a love relationship. They must be able to see that you are not really fickle, but rather childishly enthusiastic about life.
You are “in love with love” and are frequently disappointed when your torrid romances don’t last. Instead of jumping into relationships head first, you should learn to be patient and really get to know your partner before giving your heart away. It would be best for you to choose a partner who is more cautious than you are and to let them set the pace of the relationship.
Venus in the Sixth House You are popular among co-workers and employees, and in fact you may meet lovers on the job. At any rate, you try to make your time spent at work as enjoyable as possible. Your health is usually good, unless you abuse it with too much food (especially sweets). You enjoy doing favors and being of service to loved ones, but you must remember to let them return the favor. Pets are a source of enjoyment to you.
Mars in Scorpio With Mars in Scorpio, you are very perceptive and have the ability to see through people’s false fronts. You have a magnetic personality, and although you are quite controlled, others can sense your highly developed sexual nature through your calm exterior. Anyone who becomes close to you must be prepared to handle your intense emotions.
You are very loyal and devoted to those you love, and you require the same devotion from them. With Mars in Scorpio, you want what you want now, not later, and you will stubbornly pursue your goals until you reach them, no matter how impossible they might seem to others. Once you learn to develop more self-discipline and focus your energy better, you will have greater success. Until then, you will be controlled by your desires instead of the other way around.
You are a very ardent and intense lover, and it is important to you that you express this on a physical level. Although you are very good at hiding (and repressing) your emotions, you can be jealous, possessive, suspicious and even vengeful. Honesty is of the utmost importance to you in your relationships, and you will always keep your commitment to a lover once you have given your word.
In sex you are a master at manipulation and seduction, and you usually get your way once you set your mind to it. You easily pick up vibes from your partner that tell you where you stand with him or her. You are easily aroused and need a partner who can appreciate your intense lovemaking. No matter what your sex, you are usually in control in your relationships.
Mars in the Second House You are protective of the possessions you have acquired, and you will vigorously fight anyone who tries to gain control of your resources or take them away from you. When you decide you want to own something, there is no stopping you. Avoid compulsive shopping; you are likely to be disappointed with your choice in the end. You may lose many things (and people) you value so you can learn to be less possessive.
Jupiter in Libra You are friendly and outgoing, and you enjoy entertaining guests. Since you strive for higher social status, you will do your best to become successful in your career. Because you have difficulty making up your mind, you may miss opportunities because you fail to act in a timely manner. Traditionally, this placement of Jupiter indicates that you will eventually have a happy marriage (or equivalent), although it may not be your first. If afflicted, Jupiter in Libra can indicate recurring legal problems.
Jupiter in the Twelfth House You are highly idealistic, and your expectations can sometimes be unrealistic. For this reason, it is important to think things through before acting. With your deep love for humanity, you have a strong desire to help others who are less fortunate than you. You do not seek glory for your compassionate acts, but rather are content to work behind the scenes. You will receive much help from your guides.
Saturn in Aries Success and material wealth give you a sense of security, and you will work hard for what you want, but you sometimes lack the caution and patience to see your plans through to a successful conclusion. One of your greatest challenges in life will be to develop self-discipline and patience with others. You need to develop a keener sense of timing and an ability to wait for the right moment rather than charging forward with enthusiasm. You are an independent individual, and you value your freedom highly.
Saturn in the Sixth House You are highly practical and industrious and never overlook a detail. Because you are such a hard worker, you expect the same from others, and this can cause problems with your co- workers or employees. You usually achieve your goals, even if later in life, through perseverance and hard work. Avoid a tendency to become a workaholic and/or worry too much, which can result in depression and illness.
Uranus in Libra (1968-1975) You are charming and cooperative; you seek peace and harmony in your life. Freedom is important to you, and is one of the few things you consider worth fighting for. Unexpected changes in your relationships will present you with challenges designed to make you more accepting of others’ differences. Your challenge is to become more flexible.
Uranus in the Twelfth House You are highly intuitive and deeply interested in metaphysical matters. With your extreme sensitivity, you may have psychic experiences which you will keep secret for fear of ridicule. You are an eternal idealist and are constantly seeking the meaning of life and your role in the Universe. Avoid a tendency to escape to your private fantasy world rather than dealing with the harsh realities of life.
Neptune in Scorpio (1955-1970) You are driven to uncover the deepest secrets within society, and you have a keen interest in metaphysical sciences. With your strong desire for physical pleasures, you must avoid overindulging in food, drink, sex or drugs in an attempt to escape the tension of daily life.
Neptune in the Second House You are extremely sensitive and will benefit from following your intuitive hunches. Because you have faith in the Universe to take care of you, you place little emphasis on money or other material possessions. For this reason, you tend to be generous and share with those less fortunate. If Neptune is afflicted, you may have a strong insecurity about money which results in desperate acts of fraud or deception.
Pluto in the Eleventh House You will attract strong and powerful friends who will have a powerful influence on you, and your greatest transformation in life will come through your friendships. You are dedicated to principles which will benefit all mankind, and you will fight for humanitarian reform in society. Choose your friends carefully and avoid those who require you to act against your will to gain their approval.
Cancer Midheaven You will be attracted to a career which allows you to maintain strong family ties. A career which allows you to be nurturing or productive will give you emotional and creative satisfaction. You are good at sensing and supplying the needs of the public. Security is important to you. It can cause you to value money for its own sake rather than for what it will buy. Recognize that security also comes from loyalty and honesty in your business relationships. You are capable of making personal sacrifices in order to nurture the growth of those with whom you work.
Although you are good at switching careers because of your good sense of timing, avoid an indiscriminate, profligate lifestyle which would leave you with no permanent home base or relationship bonds. You need to have a home of your own and a settled existence. If you were the proprietor of a little shop, this could be a second home for you.
Occupations consistent with your nurturing style of work include home- or family-oriented businesses, restaurant owner or manager, real-estate broker, jobs connected with fluids or the public, politician, teacher, counselor, manufacturer, musician, entertainer, dancer, art dealer, advertiser, marketer, nurse or doctor. For the most personal career guide, also consider the nature of any planets which fall in the 10th house or conjoin the Midheaven, the sign and house placements of the moon, ruler of the Midheaven, and any aspects which other planets make to the Midheaven.
North Node in Aries You put a great deal of emphasis on being in an intimate relationship and can be overly concerned with pleasing others, thereby neglecting your own needs. Remember that you must truly know and love yourself before you can give of yourself to another. In past lives you have sacrificed a great deal for loved ones who did not appreciate your efforts. Now you may quickly become resentful if you suspect you are being used. Learn to be more decisive and to assert yourself in order to get your own needs met.
North Node in the Sixth House In past lives you have sought to escape responsibility through drugs or alcohol and/or by becoming helpless so that others must take care of you. Now it is your turn to be of service to others. You are a natural born healer, although you may not be aware of this gift. At some point in this life you will work with hospitals or other institutions dedicated to serving the needs of society.
Chiron in Aries You are very courageous, and you enjoy venturing “where no one has gone before.” In order to develop your strengths to their fullest, you tend to push yourself to go beyond what you know you can handle. You love being physically active, and will become very restless if required to stand still for very long.
Chiron represents the deep wounds we’ve all suffered in life which seem nearly impossible to heal. In the sign Aries, it indicates that for you this wound was connected to your early upbringing, which was probably filled with conflict. This may have stifled your sense of self-confidence and spontaneity, so that you had to rebuild it as you matured.
Chiron in the Sixth House Health is a major concern for you, and you may have unusual or unique physical problems. Your overall level of satisfaction in life affects your body’s health and vitality. You would enjoy a job that allows you to feel you are helping to make the world a better place. As long as you feel good about what you do, you’re perfectly happy to work behind the scenes. It’s not necessary for you to get all the credit for successful projects.
You’ll work hard to perfect your techniques and refine your skills to be the best at whatever you do. Your goal is absolute perfection, but it is of course impossible to achieve. With your strong concerns for health, you may choose a career in the health care field.
Planets in Aspect Sun square Mars (Strength: 6.55) This aspect indicates that you are a warrior at heart. When you encounter conflict, you are not hesitant to meet it head-on. Indeed, you may even look for trouble if it doesn’t find you (especially during harsh transits to your Sun or Mars). It is hard for you to take a back seat to anyone; you’d rather run things yourself. Your forcefulness alone will not earn you the right to lead others. A little patience and understanding will earn you the trust every leader needs. Learn to admit that you are not an expert on everything and to ask advice of others, even “underlings.”
You could succeed in the fields of teaching, writing, law, medicine and healing, police or military service, or competitive sports. Since you value your own freedom and want to be in control, you would perhaps be happier as your own boss. You have great admiration for those who have accomplished their goals in life. In order to succeed in business, however, you must learn to be a good listener.
If other aspects in your natal chart provide the self-discipline, patience and diplomacy that this aspect lacks, you can learn to consider the consequences of your actions before taking them. Once you can exercise restraint and self-control in your life, you will be able to accomplish a great deal with the creative energy and high ambition of this Sun/Mars combination.
Remember, what you get out of a situation (or a relationship) depends on what you put into it. Before becoming defensive with others, be sure you really understand the situation. Sometimes this aspect operates unconsciously so that instead of picking fights with others, you will draw such behavior to you while denying that you are a catalyst.
Moon trine Saturn (Strength: 5.91) You may have only a few friends, but what you lack in number you make up in quality. Your friends (and lovers) must respect themselves in order to earn your respect. You are a loyal friend and would never let down another who is depending on you.
You have a fantastic memory and could use it well in such careers as: management, politics, public relations, law, education, or even engineering. You seek a position of authority and would be very fair with your underlings–as long as they lived up to their part of the deal. You look for a well-developed sense of responsibility in those with whom you work.
You may appear to be conservative to those around you, but the truth is that you have a good amount of common sense. You are not overly cautious, just careful. For this reason you are also very law-abiding. In making decisions you will examine all options carefully before acting.
Friends enjoy your company and the sense of well-being they derive from your emotional stability. This is a quality that can also help children to grow and develop their own stable foundation, and you would be a kind disciplinarian as a parent.
Chances are that your more satisfying love affairs will come later in life after you have reached a height of maturity. You behave responsibly in your relationships and expect the same of your partners.
Moon square Pluto (Strength: 5.71) You are a person of deep emotions–you do not love (or hate) someone superficially; you love to the depths of your soul. At times the intensity of your emotions can cause you to act impulsively and then regret it later. This has been a problem for you since you were a child.
This aspect also indicates that throughout your life you have had strong ties to your past which you have had difficulty breaking. You may hold grudges or ill will toward those who have slighted you in the past. This will only harm you, however, since they have probably forgotten the incident altogether. You can tend to be pessimistic, so be sure to make a special effort to think positively. Your feelings are very powerful, so be careful how you use them.
You are rather demanding in your relationships, and this can make others feel as though they cannot possibly love you enough. Don’t expect everyone to be capable of your depth of feeling. Learn to accept and love others as they are at the level at which they are comfortable. This will result in fewer disappointments in romance. You would enjoy your most successful relationships with others who are capable of your depth of feeling.
For the most part you will be a loner, even as a child. You have a lot to learn about human nature; you begin life’s social lessons very young–perhaps you even feel your parents rejected you in some way. After suffering many disappointments, you may be tempted to turn bitter and defensive. The real test of this aspect is to resist falling into that trap (probably one carried over from past lives).
Make an effort to be more tender and loving, and be willing to be vulnerable now and then–only be sure it is with someone you absolutely trust (another difficult thing for you to master). Be sure to get proper rest and vacation time. This is imperative for good health. Anxiety has very destructive effects on you physically.
You have a curiosity for and a talent in occult sciences. This is fine as long as you keep all of the power you will uncover in its proper perspective. Do not dabble in black magic or satanism.
Sun trine Ascendant (Strength: 5.70) You have complete confidence in yourself and your ability to succeed in life. People admire your optimism and usually offer their cooperation and support. You are highly creative and combine this gift with a fantastic imagination in your work. On the other hand, you may be apathetic about your talents and even be lazy at times. Be careful to take opportunities when they present themselves. They may not be offered again.
Your parents imbued you with a sense of good character. You accept responsibility for setting and achieving your own financial goals. But you must learn to take constructive criticism. Your chosen career must offer room for growth and security for your twilight years. You appreciate a good challenge and can easily excel in your chosen field if you use your talents well. Others will admire your achievements –which will delight you–and you will be well compensated for the good job you do. Forming a business partnership with someone who shares your optimism and ambition would almost certainly result in success for you both.
In your love life you express yourself very well with your body language, communicating your sexual interest in someone without words. You can teach your lover a lot through your life experiences.
Sun sextile Moon (Strength: 4.90) For the most part, your life is peaceful and happy. You have many friends and generally get along well with family members and associates. You do not allow yourself to get stuck in the past or to live entirely in the future but instead are able to strike a balance between the two. However, you do have a talent for learning from past mistakes in order that you don’t repeat them.
You are not afraid to assert yourself when you feel it is necessary, although you usually manage to do so in a way that is easy for others to accept. You are always willing to compromise in your dealings with others and therefore are generally an easy person to get along with. You truly practice the Golden Rule of “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” and for this reason those around you respect you and feel comfortable dealing with you. You don’t judge others harshly and instead allow them their flaws and imperfections.
Although you have a strong ego, you are not willing to step on others’ feelings in order to achieve your goals. You are a master at communicating your feelings and intentions to others, and others respect you because it is obvious that you have a great deal of self-confidence. Also, others feel comfortable around you because you always look upon them as equals, no matter what their social status or level of experience may be.
Your chances for success in your chosen career are quite good, and you would be very happy working for yourself, especially if you can work from your home. You have an endless database of new ideas and creative suggestions, and others will appreciate your versatility on the job. And since you are willing to make compromises in order to get along with others, you enjoy pleasant relationships with your employer and coworkers. You always have time to listen to another’s problems, and others freely place their trust in you.
You had a healthy relationship with your parents as a child, and this left you well prepared to deal successfully with others. You can pass on your optimistic outlook on life to your own children, and they will learn a great deal from watching the example you set.
Neptune trine Midheaven (Strength: 4.69) You are very sensitive emotionally, and you are usually shy until you’re gotten to know and trust someone. Others are surprised to find that it’s easy to hurt your feelings with no more than a few harsh words (at least until you learn to trust them). Quite often, you put your needs aside in order to help someone who is less fortunate. You do your best to live your spiritual ideals, and could excel in fields such as health care, religion, social work or public relations.
Material success is not nearly as important to you as achieving your spiritual and humanitarian goals. In fact, you avoid accumulating excessive belongings, because the responsibility of caring for such stuff restricts your freedom. You are very caring and generous toward others (especially family and loved ones).
Even as a young child, you had a strong interest in metaphysical sciences and the supernatural. You are highly intuitive and may have natural psychic abilities. Once you learn to trust this “sixth sense,” you’ll find it to be more reliable than depending on your intellect and reason alone to guide you.
Saturn opposite Ascendant (Strength: 4.21) Because it is not easy for you to form close relationships with others, you may get a reputation for being a loner. With your reserved demeanor, others can sometimes get the impression that you’re a snob. In fact, you have a shortage of self-esteem and are surprised when you do receive compliments. You fear rejection, and you’ve come to expect it from most everyone.
You are more capable than most people, yet you shy away from competition. Only by taking a chance and trying it will you find out how successful you can be. You need constant reassurance that you are competent and skilled because you tend to form the opinion that everyone around you is more competent than you are. Asking for a raise in pay, a minor thing to many people, is a major undertaking for you, requiring a great deal of courage and determination.
With Saturn opposing your Ascendant, you are likely to marry late in life or to be attracted to partners who are older than you. You are self-conscious and shy around others, and they may accuse you of being detached or indifferent. You are especially sensitive and defensive when relating to others, and it may sometimes seem more trouble than it’s worth.
Jupiter conjunct Uranus (Strength: 4.21) You are optimistic about your future and are creative in developing your talents to your best advantage. You have a strong respect for knowledge and education and have an insatiable appetite for new information. You understand that knowledge empowers as well as liberates the mind and admire those who have attained a high level of intellectual skill.
Even as a child you had more than an average ability to absorb information, and you probably grew up in an environment which encouraged education, directly or indirectly. You are quick to recognize opportunities when they present themselves and are eager to grow and learn. You take a somewhat philosophical approach to life and see a larger meaning behind every occurrence.
In your career you would do well in education, law or government work. Your optimism and philosophic outlook are contagious and inspire those around you, especially students. In government work you would have the insight necessary to establish social guidelines for the benefit of all.
You surround yourself with others who share your attitudes about life and are generous to a fault with your friends. You require a love partner who is as excited about each daily development in the world as you are and who shares your view of the future.
Mercury trine Uranus (Strength: 3.81) You are on a campaign for self-improvement. Your outer life is in harmony with your inner values, otherwise you would not be happy in life. You have your own set of spiritual values, and you understand occult matters. Most likely you are very intuitive and have psychic abilities. You are fascinated by the unexplained, and you seek the truth behind these occurrences.
You act with self-confidence and speak what is on your mind. Occupations in the fields of: teaching, scientific research, philosophy, psychology or social programs would be satisfying to you. You are a natural leader and can inspire others to develop their own potential.
In love relationships you have a natural feel for what will work and what won’t work. Your lover may also provide moral support and help motivate you to act on your many good ideas. Or you may take your lover’s innovative ideas and refine them into practical suggestions.
Mercury opposite Midheaven (Strength: 3.67) Since you were a small child, you’ve had the ability to communicate very clearly with others. Because you become emotionally involved in every discussion, you can strongly convey your meaning to others on many levels.
Your ideas and feelings may seem so important to you that you are in danger of forgetting that other people are entitled to different opinions. Try not to take everything so personally, and remember that others believe their feelings are important too.
At times you may find that you think a lot about your past, either with fond nostalgia or with bitter regret. If you find yourself lamenting missed opportunities, just remind yourself that you cannot go back in time, only forward. Use the energy you’d waste worrying to plan a better future for yourself.
Sun sextile Saturn (Strength: 3.60) You have the ability to learn a great deal from your life experiences and a talent for helping others learn from your mistakes. Although you are relatively modest, you are a very understanding and competent person. You use your resources (personal and otherwise) wisely and treat others with respect. Others value your opinion highly, but you usually prefer to fade into the background and allow others with larger egos to get the attention.
In your career you are highly ambitious and are willing to follow your own judgment against the advice of others– and you are usually glad you did. Since you treat your supervisors with respect, they also respect you, and this can help you a great deal in the professional world. You are not interested in get-rich-quick schemes, preferring instead to plan your course carefully and follow it one careful step at a time.
You could excel in a career in law, politics, research and development, teaching or industrial management. No matter which field you enter, you will probably soon rise to a position in management. You are highly responsible in your business dealings and keep up with the latest advances in order to remain competitive. Because you have worked hard for all you have gained in life, it would be hard for a competitor to topple you. You build your career on a solid foundation of integrity, competency and efficiency.
In your personal life, you prefer to associate with others who hold sincerity and honesty in high esteem. You are fond of the old fashioned ways and traditions and are able to see their value. In your love life you would be happiest with a permanent, stable relationship with someone you respect.
Moon sextile Ascendant (Strength: 3.60) You are very intuitive in your interactions with others, and you are very sensitive to the many messages (spoken and unspoken) which we all constantly transmit. As a child you were especially susceptible to peer pressure, and your friends’ opinions about you were of utmost importance to you. As you mature you realize that you truly can’t please everyone, so you might as well please yourself.
In your career you enjoy a never-ending stream of ideas. Don’t be afraid to pass the best of these on to your supervisor. Even though they might not agree with your idea, they may appreciate your inventiveness. Be prepared to promote yourself if you want to succeed, even if this means risking criticism from others. You are your own worst critic; others usually find you very competent.
You are probably well read and can speak intelligently on many subjects. With your easygoing approach, others are comfortable in your presence. Even without words, you can say a great deal through body language. You insist on being honest with those around you, even though it does not always work to your benefit.
Mars sextile Pluto (Strength: 3.26) You are driven by a powerful urge to know the truth and are very good at collecting and analyzing facts. Since you are so well informed, you are an articulate conversationalist and enjoy a good debate or heated discussion. You use drama in your discourse very effectively and would be a moving public speaker. This is especially the case if you are involved in a humanitarian cause or mission. You are impatient with social injustice and respect those who are doing something about it.
It is not difficult for you to ascertain others’ motives in your dealings with people, and this gives you the upper hand if someone tries to deceive you. You expect frankness and open communication from those you deal with. You even respect your competitors if they can be direct and to the point instead of using subtle and indirect tactics.
Your physical desires are strong, although you require much more than sexual gratification in your long-term love relationships. The ideal partner would be one who could be your companion and friend as well as your lover. You always let your friends, family and lovers know exactly where they stand with you–and you will be clear about what you expect from them. At times you may need to practice more compromise in order to solve conflicts of interest.
You feel strongly about your objectives in life and must do more than just talk about them. Get involved and work to bring about your ideal. If you apply yourself, you can accomplish a great deal.
Mercury sextile Neptune (Strength: 3.10) You have a highly active imagination, which comes in handy solving the daily problems of life. Your intuition allows you to see difficulties in a larger perspective, which enhances ease of solution. You have a strong respect for knowledge and an insatiable curiosity. In addition, you have a natural ability to learn from your experiences and to see the hidden truth in all situations.
In a career you would do well as a writer, journalist, teacher, healer, artist or social worker. You are naturally artistic and sensitive to the needs of others. No matter what field you choose, you will do well in any job which requires good communication skills. You deal well with people on a day-to-day basis.
Getting an education is important in order for you to take full advantage of your many talents and creative abilities. If you are properly trained in the use of these natural skills, you will surely succeed. It will help if you set concrete goals early in life and work slowly toward them, avoiding distraction along the way.
In your personal life you are warm and loving and see your relations with others in a philosophical way. You are idealistic in that you want the world to be the best possible place, but you don’t expect individuals in your life to live up to an unrealistic ideal. You highly respect those who are at least trying for self-betterment.
Sun inconjunct Pluto (Strength: 2.81) With this aspect you tend to overreact to others’ expectations of you and do much more than you need to; yet all the while you feel that you are not doing enough. You carry a guilt burden with you through life which forces you to prove to yourself (and others) that you are doing your share. You demand too much of yourself and are your own worst critic. Avoid comparing yourself to your co-workers and rating your performance against theirs. You can also become obsessed with pleasing those whom you consider to be your superiors. Their power intrigues you.
In your quest for approval from others, you work very hard and may incur physical sickness or injury if you make unreasonable demands upon your body. It is quite likely that you will achieve your goals in life, but you must learn to develop your natural potential. It may be necessary for you to make sacrifices in order to succeed in life, but be careful not to make these sacrifices for the sake of others’ careers.
You should cultivate a healthy sense of selfishness. Learn to recognize your limitations and work within them. You need an advisor whom you can trust to help you make your plans. When you begin to see your efforts toward success bear fruit, you will learn to like yourself more. Learn to relax and not worry so much.
In love relationships you are very affectionate but also somewhat demanding. This is because you expect to be lavished with loving and your lover may not be so predisposed. You may attempt to manipulate your lover with your generosity.
Mars trine Midheaven (Strength: 2.50) You are very self-confident and highly independent. For this reason, your most fulfilling career would be one that allows you to exercise a great deal of autonomy. If you work for someone else, you need to have control over your own department or branch office. You have your own way of doing things, and you’ll allow interference from no one.
Others see you as a very hard worker, but to you it seems to come naturally; in fact, you even enjoy it. Your peers are inspired by your enthusiasm for life, and they look to you for guidance. You also have a talent for “sweet talking” your way into or out of situations once you decide to turn on the charm.
To make sure that your energy is not wasted, choose a purpose in life and work steadily toward it. Pick something that you really enjoy (perhaps a hobby) and focus all your energy to become a professional in your chosen field.
Venus opposite Jupiter (Strength: 2.03) You are inconsistent in your dealings with others, fluctuating wildly from one extreme to the other. You indulge your loved ones (mostly to gain their approval), yet you are also capable of using them to attain your objectives. You look to others for verification that you are competent and likable, but you can also alienate your closest friends with an unending stream of details about yourself and your life.
Although you may use others to satisfy your goals, you become bitter toward those who use you. You stay away from people who don’t give you approval and stick with those who will. Compromise does not come easy for you, but you will go along with the majority if it serves your purposes. Despite all this, you can be generous and sympathetic to the problems of others.
You can be highly creative in your chosen profession. You enjoy competition because you use it to constantly prove your competence. When it suits your purposes you will not hesitate to “bend the truth” or even be hypocritical. And you are not always honest and forthright in your dealings with others.
In love relationships you are “always a bridesmaid or best man, never a bride or groom.” You may pay lip service to a commitment until your partner suggests marriage, then you may suddenly lose interest. Your ability to become happily married depends on your willingness to accept the responsibilities that accompany such a binding contract.
You require a stable and patient lover who can tolerate your wide swings in mood. Remember that your partner has sexual cycles of his or her own. Keep the channels of communication open between you so that each of your needs can be met.
Sun square Neptune (Strength: 1.73) Often this aspect indicates an inferiority complex which is probably traceable to your early parental conditioning. Your parents may have misunderstood your need to assert your own individuality and tried to curb your self-expression. In self-defense you may have built emotional walls around yourself to shield you against others who would hurt you. Although you are highly creative and eager to do something with your many talents, you fear failure to such an extent that you often may not even try.
You shy away from intense competition because you underestimate your ability to emerge as the victor. Also, you don’t like the idea of beating anyone in competition because you don’t want to hurt their feelings. You run away from your responsibilities and then feel guilty about it. You need to learn to love yourself and put yourself first when dealing with others.
In your career it would be best to start out with a job that requires a minimum of responsibility on your part. As you gain experience and realize that you can indeed succeed, you can set higher goals for yourself. You are very sensitive and emotionally vulnerable, and you must be careful not to let others use you.
In matters of love, be realistic about your expectations of your partner; don’t ask the impossible and therefore set yourself up for disappointment. If you are unsure about how to assert yourself in your relationships, let your partner take the lead and then react accordingly. Building a successful relationship will be a gradual process for you; don’t rush in without looking at least twice.
Mercury trine Jupiter (Strength: 1.53) You have a great deal of self-confidence in your ability to succeed and a generally positive outlook on life. You absorb knowledge like a sponge and are a veritable font of knowledge. You have one of those rare talents for succeeding with minimum effort. Use it constructively rather than becoming pompous about what you already have accomplished.
Others respect your integrity and high standards, and therefore you may have friends in high places. Perhaps you will find that these people can present you with opportunities and perhaps have you act as their agent or spokesman. You adjust well to any new task assigned you and will always come up with whatever you need to learn to carry it out.
In an occupation you would do well in law, journalism, foreign correspondence or counseling (especially young people). You would soon excel in any of these areas and would be a valuable asset to any organization you join. You would fit in well with any social group, no matter what your own social standing is.
You enjoy the company of a wide variety of friends. Others feel they can trust you because you are able to see their faults and love them in spite of them. You bring out the best in others, and they admire your friendly disposition, flexibility and wealth of knowledge.
In love you are a desirable partner because of your optimistic outlook on life and your wide variety of interests. Life is not boring in your house, and you are just plain fun to be with. Children especially love you and appreciate your sense of humor. You let them be children, and they love you for that.
Mercury square Ascendant (Strength: 1.51) Without intending to, you often express yourself with such force that other people misunderstand your meaning or are offended. Your sometimes aggressive nature is nothing more than an attempt to compensate for your lack of confidence, although most people don’t realize this. You use flattery to win people over, but they can usually detect your insincerity. As your own worst critic, you continually compare your accomplishments to those of your peers.
It is possible that your education may have been delayed because of more pressing family priorities. If this is the case, you may feel intimidated by competitors who have more education or training. If you are willing to complete your education and work hard to “catch up” with your competitors, you can be as successful as they are. Remember, people can only treat you like an inferior if you feel that they are your superior. The better you feel about yourself, the better others will treat you.
In your love life you must learn to relax and be yourself when you meet new friends and lovers. You project so much nervous energy that this is sometimes all someone sees when they meet you. You send out body language which at times directly conflicts with your verbal message. Ask your partner to pay more attention to your words until you improve your communication skills to bring your verbal and nonverbal messages into agreement. Avoid indulging in gossip or spreading rumors. This could cause serious damage to your relationships.
Pluto sextile Midheaven (Strength: 1.23) Your deep inner strength is evident to others who do not share the same quality, and you may find that many come to you for advice and guidance. Quite often, you are able to help someone who is in a crisis situation, and you very much enjoy assisting them. Just remember that everyone is entitled to reject as well as accept your advice. Don’t get too attached to solving other people’s problems. Ultimately, they are responsible for their own lives.
With your natural talent for solving mysteries, you would do well in any career involving research, law, psychology, investigation, or social reform. You have the ability to see through a person’s outer pretenses and discover their true motivations. For this reason (and because people tend to trust and confide in you), you would make an excellent supervisor.
Whatever you do in your profession, it is important to you that you are doing something that will help to improve society and the world in general. The more people whose lives you can touch and help change for the better, the happier you will be.
Mars conjunct Neptune (Strength: 1.18) You tend to act impulsively and yet don’t take complete responsibility for your actions. It is difficult for you to plan ahead, and therefore your judgment is often cloudy. This leaves much in your life to chance, or fate, and makes it difficult for you to have total control over your life. Learn to look very carefully before you leap and to examine every situation from a realistic point of view.
Because you have a magnetic personality, others are drawn to you and seek the pleasure of your company. Your active imagination is fascinating and inspiring to others. Because of your innate creative talents, you could do well in a career in drama, music or art. Just be careful not to be deceived in your career (or to deceive others). You will see that in dealing with others, honesty is by far the best policy.
In love relationships you may suffer repeated disappointments until you learn to see your partner more realistically. You tend to look at loved ones through rose-colored glasses, seeing only the parts of their personality that you want to see. This may seem quite pleasant at the time, but it also sets you up for future disappointment when your loved one cannot live up to your idealistic expectations.
By all means, be sure to deal with others honestly and to demand that they do so in return. Be cautious in choosing who you will confide in and be sure to keep your friends’ confidences to yourself as well. It is advised with this aspect that you deal with drugs (prescription and otherwise) with great caution. Take good care of your health; you are more prone to infection than others.
Mars inconjunct Saturn (Strength: 0.48) With this aspect in your natal chart you tend to be somewhat self-sacrificial in your interaction with others. You have difficulty ascertaining exactly what your responsibilities are (both to yourself and to others). As a result, you often attract needy people who expect you to take care of them. At some level you may feel that you are freeing yourself of some guilt over past misdeeds; at another, you feel the need to demonstrate to yourself and to others that you care about people. To you it seems easier to give in to the demands of others than to feel guilty about it if you turn them down.
While you are able to clearly see the best qualities in everyone, you fail to see them in yourself. You think everyone is more talented and competent than you are and may even have developed a sort of inferiority complex as a child. Success will elude you so long as you lack self-confidence and certainty in your life goals. You will feel more comfortable if you are able to establish a position as an expert in your field. This allows no room for questioning your capabilities (by either yourself or others).
In terms of a career, you are drawn to such fields as the military, sports, conservation, physical therapy or social work. Because you allow yourself to be intimidated by co- workers or supervisors, disputes are likely until you learn to control your temper. It’s best to worry about the details of your own life and not be concerned with those of others.
In your personal life you may be taken advantage of by several lovers before you learn to stand up for yourself. While you are afraid to displease your partner with a display of anger and strong will, this is exactly what will win your partner’s respect. Don’t allow yourself to be manipulated emotionally; insist that others deal with you honestly and straightforwardly. Remember, anyone who uses love to gain your submission does not have your best interests at heart, but their own.
Physically, this aspect can indicate physical injury from accidents (such as fractures) or conditions such as arthritis or bursitis. Be sure that you continue to get enough exercise as you age rather than becoming completely sedentary.
Venus opposite Uranus (Strength: 0.24) You are a rebel at heart, have a problem with authority figures and can get into trouble by challenging their power over you. You are quick to express your opinion, and the intensity with which you do so can also cause problems in your relationships.
You enjoy exciting competition on all fronts: home, job, friendships. You are highly ambitious and determined and will even alienate friends in your climb to the top if it is in your best interests to do so.
Your charm and humor come in handy in your occupation. You would do well in jobs that require you to deal with the public.
In your love life you must learn to meet your partner halfway. You may have many loves, but not many deep ones. This could add up to a lonely life which would not be resolved until you are in your later years.
Mercury trine Pluto (Strength: 0.14) Even as a child you were a deep thinker, and you may have felt that your interests were entirely different from those of your peers. At a young age you began to question the larger plan of the Universe and to understand its mysteries. Adults may have been surprised that a child so young could have such profound thoughts.
As you mature you develop an incredible ability to concentrate and to do in-depth research. Your mind explores the deepest realms of the unknown, and you are particularly fascinated with the mystical or mysterious. Your bounty of creativity could be the secret to your success, if you will dare develop it.
You would do well in such professions as medicine (especially surgery), research and development, chemistry, criminology or counseling. You also have a talent for handling the assets of others and therefore could do well as an accountant or other financial expert. Since your research skills are impressive, you could be a writer of technical papers or political/social analysis (or you could write mystery novels).
It is usually easy for you to look beyond the outside pretenses of others and to see their inner motivations. In this same way, you are able to size up another’s potential and to encourage and support them in developing it. As a role model you will not be pushy, but rather will only give others as much guidance as they can handle–no more, no less.
Others may at times be intimidated by your wisdom and depth of thought and may even consider you to be a “know-it-all.” Pluto brings much power into your mental processes; you must learn to control the intensity of it so that others can also have their moments of glory.
Sun inconjunct Midheaven (Strength: 0.05) Establishing goals is not easy for you, and you are unsure as to which path in life to follow. It may take you a long time to decide what you want to do “when you grow up.” You are highly ambitious and have a burning desire to succeed, but you’re not sure at what.
Since childhood, you’ve felt you were a bit handicapped, as though you had to work much harder at something than your peers in order to be considered their equal. Your relationship with at least one of your parents (probably your father) was a strained one, and you may have felt you could never do enough to please them. As an adult, you may find it difficult to cooperate and compromise with others (especially authority figures).
Developing confidence in yourself will go a long way toward reaching your life goals. Take whatever time you need to do your work properly. Other tasks that demand your attention will wait their turn. By learning to focus your attention and affix your nose to the grindstone, you can accomplish a great deal.

You have been around the track enough yourself to sense what others are going through and to show that you care. You are not the most intellectual or practical person. You can be easily swayed by an appeal to your emotions.
Balanced Sign Modalities In your chart, the planets are distributed in a balanced manner between the Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable modalities. Ability to act and survive in the world is balanced with inner insight. You stick to your values and principles at the same time that you react quickly and adapt to changes. You have the ability to listen as well as to lead. You enjoy life, but also do not shrink from facing challenges.

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.
