We are all looking for unconditional love. Most of us never got it. When we fall in love we think, "Now, finally, here is someone who will give me the (unconditional) love I've always wanted."

So we marry. Then it starts---because we're not programmed for love. Instead, we are programmed to duplicate our parents' relationship. Because of this programming, even if we found someone who loved us unconditionally, we would have to push them away.

How can we attract what we are not programmed to receive? We can't---until we take a conscious look at what we are programmed to attract. Only then can we change our lives.

This program is designed to help us do just that.



Your birth chart interpretation is based on the positions of the planets at the time of your birth. For the benefit of students of astrology, these positions, along with other technical information, are listed below:

She was an extremely beautiful woman in her mid-thirties. She was also an extremely sucessful business woman---equal to or better than many men in her profession. She'd come to me for a consultation because she was considering remarrying. Although her two previous marriages had been unsuccessful, she longed for a man with whom she could be happy. She was in my office because she honestly wondered if that were possible.

In the course of the consultation, she shared with me that her mother was successful in her career. Message: BE A SUCCESS IN YOUR CAREER. She also shared that her mother had been married several times, so she was programmed for multiple marriages. Each time my client married, her mother encouraged her to leave her husband. Her mother's message was: MARRY, BUT DON'T STAY MARRIED. As a child, my client saw her mother win every argument with each of her husbands. Message: ARGUE WITH MEN AND WIN. My client's father was strong, but distant and unaffectionate. Message: MEN ARE DISTANT AND UNAFFECTIONATE. My client created this situation in her marriages and felt unloved by her husbands. Each of her stepfathers put up a good fight, but ultimately they left. Message: MEN WILL PUT UP A GOOD FIGHT AND THEN LEAVE.

The combination of verbal and non-verbal messages produced a woman who resented men, yet kept turning to them to make her happy. Because she was programmed for marriage to be stormy and her husbands to leave, she created just that. She married strong men and wound up emasculating them. She was looking for love, but her programming would not let her keep it.

Her fiance played right into the program. He was stubborn and determined. He was not a success in his career, although he had great potential. Each time he came close to success, he'd fall short. His ambitions were high, but he became a dilettante. He made a great impression, but had no money. His programming explained it all. At one point in time, his father had been very important and successful in his career. When the young man was just a boy, his father had been nominated for an extremely prestigious award. Winning this award would have meant financial security for the rest of his life. Unfortunately, another nominee was selected as the winner. From that point on, the son was programmed to COME CLOSE, BUT FALL SHORT, and that's exactly what he did in every area of life.

His parents had not gotten along. His proud, stoic father had given him the message that THE WOMAN SHOULD PUT THE MAN FIRST. He also felt that MEN WERE MORE INTELLIGENT THAN WOMEN.

These two were programmed for each other. Here was a chauvinist up against a powerful woman; a business failure up against a business success. Neither one, however, was programmed for a warm, loving relationship, though that's what they both wanted. When faced with a situation like this, the first reaction might be to discourage a marriage, since it seems doomed to failure. Yet, these two people were attracted to each other precisely because they could give one another what each was programmed to receive. And, in spite of their programming, they loved one another. This love could, if they chose, be the impetus to help them see and release their programming and create a warm, loving relationship.

This situation occurs all the time. Our hidden messages are so deeply ingrained in our subconscious that we respond to them unknowingly. For example, if one of your hidden messages is that YOU CANNOT BE HAPPY WHILE A FAMILY MEMBER IS UNHAPPY, you will find that you are never happy because there is always someone who needs your help. Even if you are miles away, just knowing that a relative might be unhappy about something can upset you. After awhile, this message can be triggered simply by the suggestion of happiness--as soon as you feel good you have to feel bad. This totally destroys your enjoyment of life.

Another common message is that YOU WILL NEVER BE AS GOOD AS YOUR FATHER (OR MOTHER, OLDER SISTER, YOUNGER BROTHER, ETC.). If you received this message, you will see to it that you fall short of your goals so as not to surpass him. If he has not been much of a success in his life, where does that leave you?

We have been told that if we will live up to the potential indicated in the natal chart, our lives will work. Why, then, are so many lives not working? The answer is simple: they ARE working, or at least the hidden messages are working, running our lives. By knowing what these messages are, we can be free to be our highest and best, to be limitless.




Your father takes you from the security of the home and teaches you how to act in society. He helps you form your public image, the face you want the world to see. The Sun represents your father.

Sun in Leo:

Your father taught you to be dramatic and creative. He may have also taught you to have fun. His attitude is: life is a game---play it to the hilt.

Sun in 10th house:

Your father's message was to be the leader, be on top, be in the limelight. However, HE is the leader. This makes it hard for him to take a back seat should you begin to surpass him. He taught you to be proud of your career and make it the center of your life. You will be given power, responsibility and authority in this lifetime.

Sun-Mercury angle more than 10 degrees:

Your father taught you to stand back from situations and people in order to see them objectively. This applies to him as well. Because of your objectivity, you are able to converse with others without constantly bringing the conversation back to yourself and your opinions.

Sun in hard aspect to Saturn:

Your father is cold, aloof and distant. He taught you to build a wall around yourself, which keeps others from getting close. He wants your respect rather than your love. You may show him respect out of fear of what he might do if you didn't. He fears and resents authority figures. You feel that way about him and, as a result, other authority figures. You want to be an authority figure in order to "show" him.

Sun in soft aspect to Neptune:

Your father taught you spirituality and selflessness. He is kind and willing to serve. You see only the best in people because you see only the best in him--and he taught you to see only the best in yourself. He is an inspiration to you.

Sun in soft aspect to North and South Nodes:

You have a good rapport with your father and with men in general. You can attain power and authority in this lifetime.



The most important person in your early years is your mother. Because the Moon rules both the mother and the subconscious, her influence reaches you on the deepest levels. It might be said that since the subconscious is the repository of all past-life experiences, your mother triggers this memory, which is why her influence is so strong.

Your mother's main message is to look for emotional security. The house in which the Moon is placed natally indicates that area of life in which you hope to find this security. You received this message either directly or indirectly. She told you where to look for it, and you spend the rest of your life looking for it where she said it would be. The sign in which the Moon falls describes your mother, as do the aspects to the Moon. The aspects also tell you if it will be easy or difficult to find the security you seek. Because the Moon is changeable, the promise of emotional security is elusive. Perhaps this is why you keep returning to the place where it is supposed to be, hoping it will be there this time.

Keep in mind that these messages are not necessarily verbal. You can receive them from her actions as well as her words; by her presence as well as her absence.

Moon in Sagittarius:

Your mother has a great need for freedom and is probably quite philosophical about life. She may tend to exaggerate, but tries to be honest at all times. She taught you to explore new horizons, open your mind to new concepts and seek the truth. You are both affable, generous and see the humor in all of life's situations. Your true security comes through having the freedom to soar.

Moon in 3rd house:

Your mother's message is to think emotionally and remember not just what happened, but how you felt about what happened. Your emotional security need may be fulfilled through talking. You are probably quite psychic, but may find it difficult to discern between intuition and emotion. The female influence in your early environment was strong. The Moon here can indicate not just your mother, but other female relatives. Travel may help fulfill your need for security. Your mother taught you to take your ideas personally, to identify with them emotionally, and to think defensively. However,your true freedom comes from letting go of your emotional attachment to your ideas.

Moon in hard aspect to Mars:

There is a conflict between you and your mother. You hold much anger, hostility and/or unresolved resentment toward her. Neither of you can forgive the past. This carries over into your relationships with everyone else, making you competitive, argumentative, and retaliative. Your emotions are right below the surface and can be easily triggered. Your need for a sexual outlet is strong.

Moon in soft aspect to Saturn:

You respect your mother and older people in general. Your mother is strong and channels her emotions constructively. You are both willing to do whatever is necessary to get the job done. She has a good rapport with her family. She imbued you with a strong sense of repsonibility and leadership, as well as the ability to get along with authority figures.

Moon in hard aspect to Uranus:

Your mother is unpredictable and you never know what to expect of her. She taught you to rebel. You both want freedom. As a result, relationships can end suddenly and unexpectedly. You attract self-willed, erratic people to you.

Moon in soft aspect to Pluto:

There is a strong, psychic bond between you and your mother. You understand each other's feelings. She gave you positive, healthy messages about sex which now gives you the freedom to enjoy yourself. You are a very magnetic person and channel your emotions well. Your intuitive ability is strong. You are nurturing without being smothering.



Saturn is reality and often, restriction. In the natal chart, it can represent your mother, father, grandparents, family ---anyone who imposes a restrictive influence on your life and tries to teach you reality through discipline.

Saturn in Leo:

The authority figures in your life acted like they were born to rule. They passed this along to you. It is hard for a king to show love. Pride gets in the way and builds walls between monarch and subjects.

Saturn in 11th house:

The authority figures in your life told you to be a friend, but the hidden message is that THEY were to be your friends. This can limit your friendship circle by making you fearful of going outside the parameters they have set. Their message was also to be the authority figure with your friends---yet THEY are the authority figures and THEY are your friends. You may find that your friends outside your family circle are older people or those you have known for years.

Saturn in hard aspect to Sun:

You have a fear of authority figures which can masquerade as respect. You are afraid that if you don't give them the respect they want, they will impose more restrictions on you. They are traditional, rigid and build walls around themselves. You resent them because YOU want to be an authority figure. Yet, responsibility implies a certain amount of restriction to you. You prefer respect to love. Displays of affection make you uncomfortable.

Saturn in soft aspect to Moon:

You feel secure with the authority figures in your life. They got along, which taught you to get along with older people. You care and accept your repsonsibility without feeling burdened by obligation.

Saturn in hard aspect to Jupiter:

You experience conflict between doing what you want to do and doing what you feel you ought to do. Even when enjoying yourself, you feel limited. This message came to you from the authority figures in your life who would pull you back when you were enjoying yourself. Their concept of God involves fear. This can curb your enthusiasm since the implication is that if you have too much fun, God will punish you---there is a price to pay for all happiness--every silver lining has a cloud.

Saturn in soft aspect to Neptune:

The authority figures in your life helped you put your dreams into action by looking at them realistically. You have a certain reverence for authority figures. You can combine mysticism with religion, and bring a pratical approach to the metaphysical. You're not afraid to examine your dreams in the light of day.

Saturn in hard aspect to Pluto:

The authority figures in your life did not get along. They resented and rebelled against authority, while exercising their own authority with you. Their double message causes you to lock horns with all authority figures. You resent having to obey someone just because he's in authority. Your fear of being controlled by those in power makes you rebel. Actually, YOU want to be the authority figure. Once in power, though, you're afraid of being undermined. In order to protect yourself, you act like the authority figures you resented as a child.


Pluto is another indicator of your mother's ---and sometimes your grandmother's---message. Pluto represents total change, control, and transmutation. It is the all-or-nothing planet. Pluto deals with all the mysteries of life: life itself, where it originates, where it goes when it leaves this plane. Pluto and the aspects it makes in your chart describe your mother's message about and your attitude towards sex.

Pluto's house placement indicates where there can be a power play with your mother, where you will both try to dominate and control, and where you can bring about a total transformation. You control because you don't trust. You don't trust the people who rule the house in which Pluto falls.

While Pluto represents your mother's message, it can also represent your grandmother's. Use whichever word applies to you.

Pluto in Leo:

Pluto in Leo changes your attitudes about power and authority.

Pluto in 11th house:

Your mother's message is to be a friend, but to control any group in which you participate so that they don't control you. However, SHE is your most controlling friend and can switch roles from friend to mother. This confuses you and makes you mistrust her. Your friends see you as powerful, but manipulative.

Pluto in hard aspect to Sun:

At the time of your birth your parents were involved in a power play. There was a lack of trust betwen them. They could not forgive and forget. This led to their resentment and vindication, which set the tone for your own relationships. You are manipulative and controlling, and find it hard to trust others. You do not forget past hurts. You want to dominate and lead, and resent those who do.

Pluto in soft aspect to Moon:

There is a strong psychic bond between you and your mother. She may have had a similar bond with her mother. You find it easy to understand and get along with women. Your feelings for your home and family are deep and positive. You are a magnetic person with a strong intuition. There is a natural mothering quality about you that does not smother or possess.

Pluto in soft aspect to Mars:

Your mother had a good rapport with men and passed this along to you. You have lots of energy when you need it and can direct it positively. Your sex drive is well-channeled and you are able to compete on a positive level with others. Your mother gave you the freedom to assert yourself.

Pluto in hard aspect to Jupiter:

Jupiter expands whatever it touches, so your mother's control is very strong. Equally strong is your need to be free. This need for freedom is really a desire to be in control so as not to be controlled. Your mother taught you to exaggerate. This can trigger extreme reactions in you. You may tend to be vindictive and justify this by saying you are standing on principle. Your strong sexual drives can be channeled into causes and philosophies.

Pluto in hard aspect to Saturn:

The authority figures in your life did not get along. They resented and rebelled against authority while exercising their own over you. This double message causes you to lock horns with authority figures now. You resent having to obey someone just because he's in authority. Your fear of being controlled by those in power makes you rebel. Actually, YOU want to be the authority figure. Once in power, though, you are afraid of being undermined. In order to protect yourself, you act like the authority figures you resented as a child.

Pluto in soft aspect to Neptune:

There is a positive psychic bond between you and your mother. Your spiritual side is active, and you have vision and insight.


The fourth house relates to home, family and your deepest emotional security needs. It describes the parent to whom you look for the fulfillment of these needs. Traditional astrology gives the mother rulership over this house because she has been the nurturing parent, the one who stayed home and cared for the family. Today, though, mother often pursues a career, and it is father who provides the emotional security.

The tenth house rules your career, your public image and the authority figure(s) in your life. It is your father who teaches you how to get along in the world outside the home. As such, the tenth house traditionally relates to him.

There are no set rules as to which parent rules which house. Sometimes one parent fulfills both roles. Other times the parents reverse roles. Each chart must be analyzed individually to determine which parent rules the fourth and which rules the tenth.

The relationship between the fourth and tenth is important because your home, family and the security they give you determine how you will do outside the home. If you don't get what you need from one parent, you may turn to the other, who may or may not be able to fulfill your needs. Lack of emotional security in the home can lead to compensation in the career. The career, then, can become a parent replacement.

The signs on the cusps of the fourth and tenth houses add another dimension to understanding your parents. When trying to determine which house is which parent, it is helpful to exaggerate the descriptions enough to allow yourself to be able to make a distinction between the two.

Capricorn on 4th Cusp:

This parent is self-protective and emotionally attached to the family and his/her public image. He/she is moody and takes things personally.

Cancer on 10th Cusp:

This parent is cold, undemonstrative, and concerned with appearances. Money is very important to him/her.

Sun in 10th house:

Unless the Moon or Pluto are here, which would indicate that both parents influence this house, the tenth is your father. His message is to be the leader, be on top. He taught you to be proud of your career. He may have set the example. This makes it hard for him to take a back seat to you should you begin to surpass him. You will be given power, responsibility and authority in this lifetime. You can easily be in the limelight.

Mercury in 10th house:

This parent is a thinker and may be talkative. He/she is curious and might enjoy travel.

Venus in 10th house:

This parent is charming and loving, unless Venus is poorly aspected, in which case the parent is self-indulgent and tries to "buy" your love.


The signs represent principles to be learned. The house cusp on which a sign falls tells us the area of life in which that principle will be learned. Usually, the principle manifests in more than one area of life, since the ruler, or ROVING DELEGATE of that sign, carries the message to another house.

It makes no difference what sign falls on the cusp in question. We simply link the sign with its ruler's house position. For example, with Virgo on the fourth and Mercury in the eleventh, the ruler of the fourth is in the eleventh. The same thing is true if Taurus is on the fourth and Venus is in the eleventh. The same concept applies in each case.

The house in which the fourth or tenth house ruler falls gives us more information regarding that parent's messages.

Ruler of 4th house in 11th:

This parent influences your hopes and wishes, as well as your friends. He or she wants to be your friend. Your emotional security needs are fulfilled by being a friend.

Ruler of 10th house in 3rd:

Authority figures, and this parent in particular, influence your thinking. You think in terms of power, authority and responsibility.



Now that you've looked at your programming, you may be wondering if it will control you forever or if there is something you can do to change it, to move past it. There is. You can release it and yourself to God in complete faith and trust and just BE. When you come from BEING, you are coming from unconditional love. You see beauty everywhere. You are one with the whole and know that you are protected and loved.
