Most people are familiar with their Sun sign based on the month and day of birth. The Sun sign answers the question, "What's your sign?" It is the reference point that is employed when we read newspaper and magazine horoscopes. But what about the nine other heavenly bodies that make their influence felt in our lives? These planets were also in a particular sign of the zodiac when you were born. Here is where Astrology really begins to come alive for each individual. This report will take you on a revealing journey as you travel through each interpretation based on your unique month, day, and year of birth. If your birth time was included, then the Rising sign will add yet another dimension to your personal horoscope interpretation. If it is not included because you don't have an accurate time of birth, there is still much useful and insightful personal information that can be gleaned from your report.

This report takes into account the various spiritual and psychological implications, as well as the material plane potentials which are part of your individual life plan. In this case the word potential is used because you have been given a certain amount of free will and the life choices that you make will determine to a large extent the level at which these cosmic energies actually play themselves out. Use this report to find confirmation for what you already feel intuitively and to unlock the door for new life possibilities that you may not have yet considered. This is where the strength and real value of your personal Astrological report is found.

Chapter 1: The Ascendant

The precise time on the day of your birth determines your particular Ascendant, also known as your Rising Sign. This was the zodiac sign that was rising over the horizon when you were born. In addition to your Sun and Moon Sign, the Rising Sign reveals very important traits that make up a major part of your personality and your individual approach to life. This is usually the impression you like to make before you really get to know someone; it is your outer personality and image.

 

Aries Rising:

There is a distinct part of your outer personality that expresses itself very much like an Aries. You are dynamic, you enjoy meeting new challenges and you keep things very interesting with your spontaneous "just do it" attitude toward life.

Since this was the sign of the zodiac that was rising over the horizon at your time of birth, the principle of Aries--new beginnings--will be integrated into almost every area of life in some way.

Mars is your chart ruler. To discover even more about what's a priority for you, and also, the first impression you make on others, read everything in the chapter on Mars.

Neptune in soft aspect to Asc.:

You have an instinctive talent for sensing what others expect from you and then giving it to them. However, it's easy for the real you to get lost in the process. Other people detect this on unspoken levels, and wonder why they have a difficult time figuring out who you really are. Perhaps you don't want them to figure you out, or maybe you wish someone would, and then tell you!

Your outlook on life is utopian and romanticized. Some kind of artistic ability may be present, but you'll have to motivate yourself in order to make your visions into reality.

You're a dreamer who only wants to see the best in others. The truth is, you can perceive the highest potential in others even if they don't live up to it.

Pluto Conjunct or in hard aspect to Asc.:

You have a tremendous amount of power at your command, and even you may not realize how easily others are affected by your "force field." If you seem to invite more than your share of conflicts, then perhaps you can choose to develop an awareness of your approach and tone it down a bit.

You're definitely the kind of person people want on their team when winning is the objective. You won't, don't, can't quit until every option has been run through.

You can become a potent agent for healing and forgiveness. Can you start with yourself? Regeneration is your gift.

 

 

 

Chapter 2: The Sun

The placement of the Sun in your chart will show you how (the sign) and in which area of life (the house) tremendous potential exists for you. Here is where you want to be successful. The Sun cannot be ignored. We must meet and deal with the area of life that the Sun shines on in our chart in order find ultimate fulfillment. Everything revolves around the Sun. When you master whatever issues the Sun points to, then other areas of life will proceed in a more balanced and satisfactory manner. The Sun also represents: your own will, major goals, the father, men in your life, children, creativity, and the real inner you.

Sun in Scorpio:

You are deep and emotionally complex. Most Scorpios approach life with tremendous intensity of purpose. You carry an aura of mystery around you that intrigues other people, whether you are aware of it or not.

This is a sign that has a reputation for being highly sexual. It's not that Scorpios are necessarily interested in sex any more than the other signs; it's just that you radiate such intensity of purpose with a strong magnetic appeal.

You possess a natural "psychic" ability which allows you to receive intuitive information about your environment and the people you meet. This often manifests as an instant like or dislike of someone.

Giving up on an issue that is important to you is a last resort, as Scorpio tends to hang on until the bitter end. In fact, you never really give up inside. You will always carry a bit of this unfinished business around with you and given another opportunity you will try to bring it to the close that you desire. Forgive and forget? Well, you may eventually forgive a perceived wrong as the higher purpose of Scorpio energy is healing, however, you will probably never really forget it.

You are loyal, sometimes even obsessed and you like to be in control. These are fine traits to have when it applies to reaching certain goals, but beware the temptation to use this energy to undermine the efforts of those around you.

You are someone who has the ability to hit the pits and return renewed and ready for another go around. Transformation and rejuvenation are key words that describe the primary principle of your Scorpio energy.

Sun in 8th house:

Your personal fulfillment is reinforced by experiencing a complete transformation in one or more areas of life. This can stimulate an interest in metaphysical pursuits or the "mysteries of life."

At least one deeply intimate bonding experience with another person will occur. Avoid the temptation to get into control and/or obsessive behavior patterns.

This placement can also put a strong focus on other people's money. The resources of the marriage partner, inheritance, banking and taxes are some of the various possibilities.

There is a side to you that can be intense, secretive and highly emotional. You don't like losing and you can go to great lengths to manipulate situations so that you get what you want eventually. Giving up just doesn't feel natural to you.

Venus Conjunct or in hard aspect to Sun:

Personal goals in life can be boosted by your ability to use your charm and powers of persuasion. Your instinctive talent for gaining attention, even being a bit flamboyant when the occasion calls for it, encourages other people to give you what you want.

Jupiter in soft aspect to Sun:

Jupiter, the planet of mercy, confers an optimistic approach whenever there are life challenges to be met. This aspect is fortunate because it promotes successful outcomes in general, as far as personal goals and recognition.

You're a generous and loyal friend. You are basically honest and you have a sincere desire to do right by your fellow man. It's easy for you to be indulgent with others and you're a naturally big-hearted person. Use this trait with open eyes.

 

 

 

Chapter 3: The Moon

The Moon in your chart represents the past and points to an area of life (the house) where we function out of instinctive awareness. Often we have a deep emotional need to do the things that the Moon's house placement represents. Whenever insecurities arise and our feelings become involved, we tend to bring the traits (the sign) of our Moon into play. The Moon is like our security blanket. It also represents: the home, females in your life, the mother, nurturing others or being nurtured ourselves, as well as things related to the domestic scene in general.

Moon in Sagittarius:

You have an emotional need for a certain amount of freedom. You may also find that from time to time you need to expand your boundaries. This can take the form of travel, spending some time in the great outdoors, or even exercising your mental muscles with new ideas and philosophies. The shifting lunar phases acting on the sign of freedom and adventure can create inner feelings of restlessness that can manifest as making you feel somewhat "scattered."

Your emotions can be quite exaggerated. This means that when you are happy, you're very happy, and when you are depressed, you're really depressed. However, a fundamental leaning toward optimism gives you the ability to bounce back from emotionally down times. You will probably find when you are feeling the blues that getting yourself into some new scenery will do wonders for restoring your outlook on life.

Moon in 9th house:

You can be restless, and you've probably done more than your share of being on the move. You need to expand your horizons and this is often accomplished through travel, higher education or simply getting away from it all by periodically communing with nature.

This placement of the Moon can also indicate residence in a foreign country even if it's only temporary.

Your imagination is expansive and the potential exists to experience prophetic dreams.

Mars Conjunct or in hard aspect to Moon:

When you feel emotionally shaky, you tend to imagine the worst and this manifests outwardly as being oversensitive. Usually, you don't lose your temper without a good reason. Other people can be surprised by the intensity of some of your emotional outbursts. However they usually pass as quickly as they began. Deep down you hate having to surrender to anyone or anything.

Saturn in soft aspect to Moon:

There is a serious side to your nature. You can use this discipline and self-control to bypass emotion-based urges and keep your eye on the goals at hand.

Your emotional endurance is enormous. Depressive episodes are not totally debilitating and you can persevere in spite of them.

 

 

 

Chapter 4: Mercury

Mercury is the planet of communication. It tells us about how we think and talk. You can gain insight into your mode of gathering, processing and transmitting information from Mercury's placement in your chart. Mercury also represents: transportation, the five senses, youth, reading, and writing.

Mercury in Scorpio:

You are insightful, intuitive and your communications are intensely expressive. Scorpio doesn't want to budge and you often approach life with a single-minded enthusiasm that others often find somewhat exasperating. You simply like to win, that's all.

Your mind has a probing and penetrating quality that allows you to detect things that are not readily apparent to other people. You know how to keep secrets as well as dig them out of others when necessary. This makes you a natural psychologist, as you have an instinctive understanding of that which lies below the surface of other people's appearances.

You prefer to learn through direct experience rather than books and lectures. You have good concentration and the ability to totally immerse yourself in whatever you undertake.

Mercury in 8th house:

The mind is penetrating and investigative. You have a talent for uncovering secrets but, you're also quite good at keeping them.

Your thinking can undergo a complete change and you can use the power of the mind and the words you speak to change your world. Spoken affirmations carry weight with this placement. Keep them positive.

Saturn Conjunct or in hard aspect to Mercury:

You have a great ability to concentrate your mental abilities toward achieving the edge in the workplace. You make a formidable, if not unbeatable opponent in a debate. Obstacles and challenges can be overcome by sheer determination and focus.

Common sense and practicality can turn into suspicion and fear of the unknown, unless a conscious effort is made to find a balance.

You sometimes censor your own communications which can give others the impression that you're too serious or shy. If you feel held back by this, do some work on spontaneous self-expression. Try taking a course in public speaking.

Uranus Conjunct or in hard aspect to Mercury:

Do you ever enjoy seeing the shocked looks you get from others when you blurt out something totally off the wall? You just may, with the planet of rebelliousness meeting your communication planet. Or, it's quite possible that this manifests simply as a lack of tact, which is not necessarily intended on your part.

You can excel at anything where verbal skills and intelligence are necessary, although you may have to develop them.

 

 

 

Chapter 5: Venus

Venus is the planet of relating to others, and thus is associated with love, attraction and socializing. In a male's chart, Venus can provide clues about traits he finds attractive in females. In a female's chart, it reveals something about how she relates to males. Venus is also the planet of material goodies and sensual delights in all of their various forms. Venus also represents: money, harmonious conditions, pleasurable activities, beauty, and the arts.

Venus in Scorpio:

You emanate a kind of sexual magnetism that others pick up on, even though you may not be making a conscious effort to project that. You display an intense loyalty and attachment in relationships. You are capable of deep intimacy, but should watch a tendency to become overly possessive with those you care about. Intense jealousy can create a self fulfilling prophecy when the one you actually care for so deeply feels compelled to break free eventually.

This placement of Venus can indicate power struggles in relationships. A Scorpio doesn't let go easily, and once hurt, you will never really forget it. You are capable of great sacrifice for the sake of your loved ones when you are motivated.

Scorpio is one of the signs of karma and often there is a kind of instant "knowing" upon meeting someone new. If this occurs, it's because of a past life involvement that may require healing with that person in this lifetime.

Venus in 8th house:

At some point in life you may benefit financially through marriage, an inheritance, or both. Handling other people's resources can be lucrative.

For you, love can be a catalyst for healing and release from old "karma." One or more deeply intimate relationships will be experienced and this will profoundly affect your love nature. You tend to bond with others based on the "chemistry" that is generated.

Neptune Conjunct or in hard aspect to Venus:

It's difficult for you not to overly idealize those you care deeply about and if hard reality ever hits, it can be the rudest of awakenings. This can make you willing to sacrifice your own best interests in the name of preserving a relationship.

Some of your associations are involvements from past lives that will require forgiveness in order to successfully evolve.

Pluto in soft aspect to Venus:

You will experience at least one intense relationship that will have a transforming effect on your approach to matters of the heart.

This aspect brings a kind of instant knowing of the partner and love at first sight is common. If you and your partner are not coming from a position of manipulation or control, then this aspect can represent the highest form of commitment and love. At any rate, issues around love and money can swing from one end of the spectrum to the other.

 

 

 

Chapter 6: Mars

Mars is our planet of action, energy output, motivation, and instinctive biological drives. It shows how and in which area of life you are willing to put forth a lot of effort. Mars' energy is quick, impulsive, and survival oriented. In a male's chart, Mars reveals something about how he relates to females. In a female's chart, Mars can provide clues about the traits she finds attractive in males. Mars also represents: competitive situations, conflicts, accidents, and sexual energies.

Mars in Sagittarius:

The planet of drive and aggression filtered through the sign of going beyond normal boundaries creates a love of adventure and even wanderlust. You possess a high energy level and the ability to generate a great deal of enthusiasm for anything you decide to undertake. In the extreme, this can manifest as fanaticism and a strong tendency toward self-indulgence. This placement supports the preacher / professor / mountain man / athlete.

Mars in 9th house:

You are more than willing to fight for truth, honor and justice. Fairness is important to you and life isn't always fair. Whatever your philosophy on life is, you will adamantly defend it, but only when you know you're right. Much of what you believe is based on your own intuitive judgement.

You'll energetically pursue higher education and travel holds great appeal for you.

You can be a champion for earth related and environmental issues. You instinctively know how to survive in the wilderness (just in case you wanted to know!).

Saturn in soft aspect to Mars:

This aspect helps you to focus your energy in a sustained and single-minded fashion allowing you to work diligently toward your goals. You don't waste your reserves of energy and physical endurance is strengthened.

Uranus in soft aspect to Mars:

Your real "genius" comes forth when you're involved in a crisis, or whenever your immediate survival is at stake.

A sense of adventure and the willingness to experiment with new ideas adds excitement to your life.

Caution is advised as this aspect can accelerate your activity and cause accidents.

 

 

 

Chapter 7: Jupiter

Jupiter is the planet of expansion and taking things beyond normal limits. It shows us where the universe allows us to indulge ourselves, and often we find that wherever it is in the chart is where things work out in our favor eventually. Some call this luck. Jupiter also represents: faith, ideas about God, abstract thinking, high ideals, and abundance.

Jupiter in Cancer:

Benefits come to you through family, property and a secure home life. You are highly sentimental and you may have a hard time releasing the past.

Your heightened sensitivity to the moods and whims of other people may make you overly self-protective in an attempt to cope with unpredictable shifts in your environment.

You generally prefer to move with the flow of your peer group. Radical behavior is not your style and you'll only resort to it when all else has failed.

You can be kind hearted and charitable. You appreciate fine food and often there is a love of cooking not only for yourself, but for the enjoyment of others as well.

Your intuition is highly developed; trust it. You have a powerful imagination that can act as a natural reinforcement for any creative pursuits.

Jupiter in 4th house:

This can indicate that your home is larger then usual. If this is not yet the case, it may be later in life. Matters pertaining to real estate and property are beneficial for you.

A religious, philosophical or intellectual influence could have been part of your upbringing.

One or both parents may have been indulgent with themselves or with you.

Jupiter is Retrograde

Your abundance is felt on the inside. You can feel satisfied with less than other people, which can be quite admirable in a way. The result is, it's easy for you to settle for crumbs when you'd really like more out of life. Take an honest inner inventory of what you believe you deserve, because that's what you'll get. Affirm to yourself that you can have what you want because you're worth it.

 

 

 

Chapter 8: Saturn

Saturn is our planet of restriction and discipline. It shows us where we may feel inadequate in some way, and thus we take this area of life very seriously because we want to perfect ourselves. Saturn also represents: life lessons to be learned, trials and tests, a strong sense of duty, and bringing ideas into material form.

Saturn in Leo:

A strong will coupled with your fine organizing talents can easily put you ahead of the game, especially in competitive situations.

Your sense of responsibility is often unyielding and you can be harder on yourself than anyone else. You may have come into this lifetime with an instinctive dislike for being the center of attention, however, this trait will probably be outgrown with time and maturity.

This is a lifetime in which you are encouraged to open your heart and freely express the love within.

Saturn in 5th house:

You may feel as if life has short-changed you in the department of pleasurable, fun, creative activities. You will have to make the time for these interests and you must put in a little overtime in order to develop the creative, fun side of life.

Feelings of inadequacy about your parenting abilities can make you want to overcompensate in that area and you can end up being a very good parent.

Get in touch with and heal your own inner child if necessary. This is a lifetime to learn all about loving from the heart. Do it big.

Uranus Conjunct or in hard aspect to Saturn:

From time to time you will experience shakeups in your attitude toward established modes of thinking and traditions that support the status quo. There is a certain amount of contentment with long held traditions. At the same time there is often an inner compulsion to break free and shake things up a bit! As soon as you begin to feel comfortable with your station in life or your achievements, unforseen circumstances often arise that prod you into activity and forward movement again.

You take yourself too seriously at times and you avoid putting yourself into subordinate positions at work or in any other group situation. If you can sit back and look at life with a different perspective, you will be able to see the value of the humorous side of life especially as it applies to you.

Lighten up on your fellow man while you're at it. Those who share your capacity for progressive thinking and inventive approaches may be hard to come by, so you may as well make up your mind to go with the flow. Your visions will manifest more efficiently with the support of others.

Chapter 9: Uranus

Uranus is a planet of unexpected change and unpredictable events. It tells us something about where we have unusual ideas and how we want to express our own unique individuality. Uranus also represents: rebelliousness, sudden awakenings, invention, progress, genius, anything "New Age," and humanitarian efforts.

Uranus in Aquarius:

Uranus was in the sign of Aquarius for approximately seven years. This means that you are part of a large group of people who will share many of the same fundamental characteristics such as the ability to be very independent, progressive and group oriented. Uranus in Aquarius people are highly inventive, take part in various humanitarian efforts and will become pioneers for many breakthroughs with regard to societal issues.

When you read your individual house placement for Uranus, you will be able to see where these traits will express themselves on a more personal basis.

Uranus in 11th house:

You can be a genius when it comes to creating some radical or wide-scale social changes through working cooperatively with others who share similar goals.

You'll find yourself involved with some interesting and unusual friendships. Expect that relationships formed within the group experience may have a somewhat detached quality to them. Some of these relationships can end as quickly as they began.

You'll turn your back on hopes and wishes held near and dear in the blink of an eye. You thrive on challenge and change.

 

 

 

Chapter 10: Neptune

Neptune is a planet that dissolves hard and fast boundaries. It is where we don't always see things as they really are, mostly because we would rather view the world through rose-colored glasses.

With Neptune, anything becomes a possibility, especially that which we can imagine. Neptune also represents: tuning into other planes of reality, the spiritual dimensions, cosmic consciousness, movies, music, and inspired creativity.

Neptune in Leo:

Because Neptune stays in the same sign about fourteen years, there are many other people who will experience the same things that this placement brings to varying degrees. Some of these include: a very creative imagination, a desire to vicariously escape reality through movies and the theater as well as, a natural ability to create drama.

Your house position will show where Neptune affects your life on an individual basis.

Neptune in 5th house:

Any creative pursuits which you undertake can be greatly reinforced with Neptune here. You have a flair for creating drama and glamour.

The dating scene and other activities that fall into the "love affair" category are often approached with unrealistic expectations. Later on when reality visits you can end up feeling disillusioned and betrayed. These kinds of situations can be avoided by making sure that you and your intentions are nothing less than accurately represented in the beginning of the relationship.

You would do well not to put all of your apples into speculative financial ventures because the outcome may often be not what you imagined.

 

 

 

Chapter 11: Pluto

Pluto is a planet that brings with it transformation. Something about the area of life that it points to will undergo a complete change. Significant lifestyle changes can happen whenever Pluto is involved. Deep, complex issues will be brought to light eventually. It is where conditions can swing from one extreme to the other. It's all or nothing.

Pluto also represents: psychological probing, keeping secrets or bringing them to light, power and control issues, obsessions, healing and purification.

Pluto in Cancer:

Pluto is the slowest moving planet, and thus is recognized as exerting a generational influence as it moves through each zodiac sign.

With Pluto in Cancer, you're part of the generation that can experience radical changes in its approach to home and family, the role of women and food production.

On a personal level, those with Pluto in Cancer tend to be patriotic, family oriented, intuitive and they have a highly developed sense of social trends.

Read the house placement for Pluto in your chart. It shows you an area of life where this planet has a more personal influence.

Pluto in 4th house:

If power struggles and manipulation played a role in your upbringing, then you can make a choice as an adult whether or not to continue the pattern. There is no middle of the road concerning your deepest emotional and security needs. Do whatever it takes to heal any childhood traumas.

You can use adversity as a catalyst that stimulates your determination to overcome obstacles and be a success.

Pluto is Retrograde

Some people go through massive changes that are clearly shown in outer circumstances. You go through tremendous inner upheavals followed by rejuvenation on the inside. You are one strong individual. You have depth of character and a lot of class. You've earned it. You're like tempered glass. You might crack, but you won't shatter.

 

 

Chapter 12: Elements, the North Node, and the Midheaven

In this section of the report we interpret the following astrological influences: the Moon's North Node, the MC (the 10th house cusp or Midheaven) and also a preponderance of an astrological element. A "preponderance" occurs when 4 or more planets or the Ascendant is in that element: fire, earth, air, or water. Many people do not have a heavy emphasis of a particular element so not everyone will have an interpretation of an element emphasis.

If the individual chart has aspects to the MC, these will reveal certain career options and potentials for your consideration.

The North Node is an important pointer along the pathway of life. You'll have to be willing to stretch yourself and move away from familiar patterns in order to meet the challenge of the North Node. Great rewards will be reaped in the form of personal growth and reaching your potential goals. The North Node sign will suggest an approach to the area of life represented by its house position.

North Node in Sagittarius:

Incorporating the following traits into your life will make it easier in the long run to attain goals.

The best way to describe this principle is to imagine a bird having to leave its nest for the first time. It is extremely challenging, but it's the only way to really learn to fly.

Broaden your horizons. Go ahead and be blindly optimistic. Your faith in the future can see you through difficult times.

Stretch your mental muscles. Take some courses in philosophy. You can develop a talent for understanding abstract concepts.

Boring, stagnating jobs or relationships can suffocate your free spirit. You must grow in this lifetime and a certain amount of freedom and adventure is as necessary for you as the air you breathe.

North Node in 9th house:

The universe is encouraging you to play up the aforementioned traits in these areas of life.

Consider the following: get yourself on a boat or airplane, or pack a recreational vehicle and hit the high road! In other words: travel. Experience other cultures. Taste lots of exotic foods. Buy yourself some ethnic clothing and wear it. Get the picture?

Go to college. Higher education will put you in touch with your higher mind. If that's not for you, then find a way to educate yourself. Think philosophical thoughts. Ponder the wonders of the universe. Ask yourself how it all began. Give your mind free rein. "I wonder if..." is a good starting point.

This is a lifetime that is greatly enhanced by movement and personal growth. Check out your belief systems. Become more attuned to your individual connection with the Creator of all there is.

Share your wisdom with those who can appreciate it.

MC Conjunct or in hard aspect to Moon:

Professionally speaking, you'll have to learn to go with the flow, as your main career may lack stability during the first half of your life. You may be a late bloomer where career is concerned, coming into full potential later in life. You can expect a strong female influence around the question of career.

Ideally your career should be one that allows you a certain amount of emotional satisfaction. Real estate, and all options that relate to the domestic scene in general, represent career potentials. Supportive, care taking roles are favored; likewise, those in which there is considerable contact with the public.

MC Conjunct or in hard aspect to Mars:

It's hard for others to pull you down because you have an innate understanding of how to draw on pure instinctive survival skills. You respect authority figures, but you're not afraid of speaking up around them when you feel it's called for. At these times you'll often forego the gentle art of diplomacy and you'll have a good deal of conflict to contend with after you've aroused the combative side of others.

A career in the military, professional athletics, marketing, or in supervisory positions is supported. Choose a career that allows you to draw on your natural ability to lead, compete and meet new challenges.

MC Conjunct or in hard aspect to Pluto:

Don't be surprised if you have your share of power struggles with authority figures. This aspect suggests domination and control. You can rise to a position of important influence over the lives of others. All efforts to climb to the top should be kept completely honest and aboveboard.

Consider some of the following career potentials: archaeology, espionage, psychiatry, mortuary science, the secret service, banking, or the medical profession--especially surgery.

Four or more Fire Signs

Energetic and aggressive, in this lifetime you will learn all about inspiration, faith, and living in the moment. Your intuition is highly developed and it's not unusual for "fiery" people to see visions.

Sports and athletic events are an excellent way for you to fill your need for a challenge while satisfying your inner competitive drive.

Four or more Water Signs

Emotional and feeling, you will learn all about sharing compassion and understanding. You are here to empathize with and nurture others. You often act on intuition which is based purely on gut feelings rather than logic.

You can fall for a hard luck story with the best of them. Beware of giving in to those who know how to push emotional buttons in order to sway your actions and opinions.

Chapter 13: House Rulerships

This chapter deals with an Astrological technique known as House Rulers. The "houses" of the horoscope deal primarily with your earth plane experiences. As such, the tone of these interpretations may appear to be more "predictive" in nature. Not all statements will apply absolutely to your experience. Here we are exploring some of the various options that may exist in your chart based on the links between these twelve major areas of life, the Houses of the Horoscope.

Ruler of 1st house in 9th:

You have a strong interest in broadening your mental experiences, perhaps through higher education, exploring different philosophies of life, or even through developing your own ideas about what makes the universe tick.

Be ready to do some long distance traveling during your life. It's in the stars.

Ruler of 2nd house in 8th:

Combining your own resources with the assets of other people will potentially strengthen your own financial picture. Consider indications that support the handling of other people's money as a way to increase your own income.

Your approach to handling money and your personal value system are subject to running to extremes; perhaps even a complete overhaul at some point in life. You could go from rags to riches.

Ruler of 3rd house in 8th:

Your mind is tuned into the psychic plane and you can develop these abilities if you choose. Your thinking, ideas and the way you communicate may go through a drastic change at some point in life.

Your thinking and communications can be very intense and a childhood experience may have had a strong influence on your mind.

This astrological influence may indicate that a sibling or near relative may leave you a legacy of some kind though it's difficult to pinpoint what or how much.

Ruler of 4th house in 9th:

Your mother or your parents may have been from a foreign country, or perhaps, one or both of them moved far away. This astrological influence can also indicate that your final home may be far from your place of birth.

Your emotional security is fortified by religious concepts or some kind of firm life philosophy. Your upbringing may have had a strong influence on your spiritual beliefs.

Your parents had some very high expectations of you.

Ruler of 5th house in 9th:

You have a great respect for higher education and you enjoy foreign cultures and long distance travel.

You may carry on a love affair with someone who lives far away or who is from a foreign culture.

You also enjoy participating in sports, athletic pursuits or something related to getting away from it all, such as hunting, camping, or hiking in the mountains.
