PART ONE: THE INNER YOU
In Part One of the interpretations you will read two sections concerned with your individual traits.
The first section describes your ego (sun), emotional make-up (moon), learning and intellectual orientation (Mercury), relationships and sociability (Venus), and the expression and focus of your physical energy (Mars).
The second section describes how well you deal internally with the external situations that you experience in life. Your capacity for happiness (Jupiter), ability to tolerate restrictions and frustrations (Saturn), how you are associated with or relate to new or innovative ideas and methods, and radical ideas and events that upset the status quo (Uranus), how you are associated with or affected by public ideals, morality, and spirituality (Neptune), and how you are associated with or affected by public policies toward crime, toward the power of government and industry, and toward exploration, development, conservation and distribution of natural resources (Pluto).
The sun rules will power and ego. It is the core of your potential and uniqueness as an individual; who you are and what you are about. It represents the main direction and focus you want your life to take, and your determination to accomplish what you set out to do. It is your personal honesty and integrity, and the ability to command respect and authority, to impress and influence others.
SUN in TAURUS
As the second sign of the zodiac, Taurus represents the second stage in the evolution of man and his place in the universe. The first thing man uses are his physical senses. What he can see, touch, and physically hold represents the reality of his position. It is why the celestial heritage of Taureans is to conserve physical resources and possessively cling to people whom they regard as their own. Their strongest desire is for personal security. Broken promises or the betrayal of others are threats to this security. Their reaction to such personal affronts is likely to be bitter, and those who inflict such abuses will not be given another chance. Disappointed Taureans can behave in a manner totally against their own best interests. They may completely retreat from the world, or, go in the opposite direction and become promiscuous. Whatever direction is taken, they may end up sacrificing the meaningful, enduring relationships they really need to feel emotionally secure.
Taureans are stubborn and impervious to changes not of their own making. However, they are able to accomplish things in life because of their tenacity in sticking to projects in which others may have long since lost patience or stamina. The astrological symbol for Taurus is the Bull and indeed, the stubborn bullheaded nature of the Taurean personality can be extremely formidable to those who have the unfortunate experience of coming up against it. On the positive side, their quiet strength and determination inspires others to trust them. Because they dislike being unable to rely on others, they are usually very dependable themselves. Taureans are loving and patient when trying to accomplish what they think is worthwhile and when dealing with people they care about. As a rule, they do not enjoy surprises or spontaneous changes. They are far more comfortable when given sufficient time to prepare for things and allowed to follow their planned agenda.
Taureans react to what they experience by assessing its possible worth. That is, before they take physical action, before they sort out their emotional involvement, and before they reason it out intellectually, they ascertain what tangible advantages are to be gained from the experience. What appears too abstract or vague fails to attract more than their passing interest. They need a definite purpose in what they do and in relationships they form. Because they don't want to be unnecessarily burdened, they willingly rid themselves of worn out items, but only if they cannot find any other way to make use of them.
Venus, planet of beauty and pleasure, rules Taurus, which means that by nature, people born with Sun in Taurus are tactile and sensuous, seekers of personal comfort and physical pleasure. By design however, they are pragmatic with an appreciative eye for both monetary value as well as aesthetic beauty. They are lovers of nature and natural things. Their harmony in life is tied to reality and the material world, but sometimes they get carried away with personal acquisitions. When they go too far afield they tend to either accumulate wealth and never use it, or recklessly squander it without improving the quality or enjoyment of their lives. As a result of their addiction to personal pleasure and comfort, Taureans can be very lazy as well as very vulnerable to the unpleasant consequences that invariably result from overindulging in rich food and other physical pleasures. Their natural cautiousness saves them from making mistakes, but it can also prevent them from taking advantage of valuable opportunities.
As a rule, Taureans are physically strong and solidly built. Even those who are not fat, may be physically more dense per pound of body weight. Many of them favor weight lifting or other body-building routines as a way to keep in shape. They enjoy participating in sports that require strength and endurance. They usually like to putter around the garden, and readily engage in other outdoor activities such as picnics, hikes, and trips to botanical gardens or a zoo. They love music and art and may have considerable talent in these areas. They often have a pleasant speaking or singing voice. Though Taureans tend to be rather subdued, they have a lively sense of humor, and enjoy socializing.
Taurus colors are brown, russet, and turquoise. Vulnerable parts of the body are the neck, throat, shoulders, and upper torso. Stiff necks, sore throats, and earaches are common Taurean complaints. The emerald, a variety of the mineral beryl and as costly as a diamond, is the Taurus birthstone. The emerald's rich green color is suitably Taurean since it is the color of money, green pastures, and serenity. The emerald has a six-sided geometric form. Six is the number assigned to Venus which in turn, is the planetary ruler of Taurus. Flowers for Taurus are the rose (red), daisy, lily, and daffodil.
The moon rules desire as opposed to ego, need as opposed to expediency or reason. It describes how you feel about yourself, how you handle relationships, and how you emotionally respond to situations and experiences. It describes the flow of your daily functions; physical, emotional, and mental. The moon represents your residence and domestic environment. It rules babies and young children, your mother and other important females in your life.
MOON in VIRGO
Except in the pursuit of pleasure (to which many of them can be quite dedicated) those born with the moon in an Earth sign are not emotionally spontaneous. They don't nonchalantly accept the responsibility of long-term relationships, or analyze emotional commitments merely as a mental exercise. They may hesitate to move at all unless they feel they are on solid ground, or there is some personal advantage to be gained by their emotional involvement. As lunar Earth sign personalities, those with moon in Virgo are guarded about their feelings. They consciously or subconsciously put up invisible barriers. However, in many cases they secretly hope others will view these barriers as a challenge in getting to know them. Their passion can sometimes be confused with compassion. An over-critical or too analytical approach to emotional situations makes it difficult for them, as well as others involved, to freely or spontaneously express feelings. Serious-minded, with common sense about most things, they can be surprisingly unrealistic at times. Their creativity always has some practical element. As writers or artists, for example, they usually stick to subjects or situations they know best.
Virgo moon personalities are emotionally adaptable. They instinctively seem to know what it takes to make others feel better. They make many friends because of their sympathetic nature, but it also means they are vulnerable to being exploited. Though they are not all scholars, they are likely to be fond of books and writing. Intellectual curiosity gives them a penchant for gathering information that can develop into serious research endeavors, or turn out to be just a fondness for gossip. At times they can be overly fastidious, usually with regard to eating habits. Concern with health makes many of them outstanding health care professionals. Their own preoccupation with health can become exaggerated to the point of hypochondria, or they can be guilty of using maladies to attract sympathy. They are mentally and emotionally stimulated by travel, communication, and information.
Women with Virgo moon may encounter sorrow through marriage. They can be dreadful nags themselves or become the victims of a nagging spouse. Men with Virgo moon tend to idealize their wives but may not be very passionate toward them. Their quiet emotional nature tends toward domesticity, though they may also have a desire for intrigue and flamboyancy.
Mercury indicates mental outlook, intellectual endeavors, the way you think and communicate. It represents ideas, methods, and information. It rules your hands and thus your manual dexterity and mechanical skills. Mercury also describes transportation; that is, how you get where you're going physically and mentally. Do you speed with all possible haste or amble along taking a few detours here and there?
MERCURY in ARIES
Individuals with Mercury in Aries want to give full and enthusiastic expression to their thoughts and ideas. For them, the decision-making process is immediate. They avoid being subjected to protracted discussions or lengthy, detailed investigations preferring to leave such time-consuming situations to others. Their mind can be brilliant and sharp, but either their ideas, or the manner in which they express those ideas, can often lack subtlety and refinement. In some cases, despite apparent brilliance, they lack the organization necessary for their ideas to be of practical use to others. Mercury in Aries indicates individuals with acute senses, a certain amount of nervous tension, and frequently, a very quick temper. Their manner of learning and transportation tends to be rushed. They want to get where they are going as fast as possible.
Venus rules your social attitudes and behavior, and your aesthetic tastes and inclinations. It is female relationships and social interactions at every level. Venus indicates your values. It describes romance, marriage and other partnerships, capacity for humor, and the pursuit of pleasure.
VENUS in GEMINI
Individuals with natal Venus in Gemini are some of the most accomplished flirts in the zodiac. It would be a mistake to accuse them of being emotionally shallow because other factors can more accurately account for the depth of their emotional commitment. However, in purely social situations, these individuals are remarkably adept. The influence of Gemini indicates their physical pleasure in relationships is never as great as the intellectual stimulation derived from them. Excellent speakers and ad-libbers, their social instincts are more geared to sharing ideas and picking up all kinds of interesting information than intense physical or emotional encounters. They find inspiration in maintaining a wide variety of relationships with people from different backgrounds and experiences.
Mars rules physical energy and efforts. It describes the strength and direction of the physical force that drives your ego, fires your emotions, and encourages your mental endeavors and communicative skills. It describes male relationships and associations, risk-taking inclinations, and the physical challenges you are likely to encounter.
MARS in LEO
Mars in Leo individuals are likely to be very generous with their time and attention. Inclined toward grandiose gestures and improbable schemes, whatever they do is usually done in a big way. Sometimes their energy and enthusiasm are such inspirational forces they are actually able to accomplish some of the seemingly impossible things they set out to do. Strong determination is another important factor in their stunning accomplishments. If they allow stubborn pride to interfere, however, they can waste valuable time. Their efforts may be very creative, though they may need to be reminded of practical considerations and assisted by those more attentive to mundane details.
Jupiter rules your potential for growth and expansion on many levels; physical, intellectual, spiritual, cultural, and the accumulation of material assets, power, and status. It describes your optimism and aspirations. It represents your father and his position in society.
JUPITER in LIBRA
Individuals with Jupiter in Libra are often dependent for personal growth on the stimulation they derive from others, and the contacts they make by constant interactions with others. Working in partnership, joint ventures, and other cooperate efforts is the key to their success. Jupiter's influence in Libra indicates increased capacity to get along with, and favorably influence others. It also indicates an inspired sense of justice. The desire they have for growth is generally in an intellectual or aesthetic area. To attain what they seek, these individuals have to deal successfully with Jupiter's tendency for overabundance and Libra's need to strike a balance between excess and austerity.
Saturn rules responsibilities, restrictions and limitations you are apt to encounter, and the lessons you must learn in life. It does not deny or diminish imagination, inspiration, spirituality, and good fortune but it does demand that these things be given structure and meaning.
SATURN in CANCER
Individuals with Saturn in Cancer find their home or domestic life limited in some way. Family responsibilities may severely limit their own activities. They may be deprived of a home or family when young, or, as adults their efforts to establish their own home or family may be restricted. The nurturing they received or their own nurturing abilities may be limited. Relationships with women and young children are also liable to be inhibited. There is also the positive potential that their creative talents will be constructively developed and applied.
Uranus rules personal as well as societal freedom. It indicates originality of thought and expression. In society it rules radical ideas and people as well as revolutionary events that upset established structures. Uranus takes approximately seven years to transit one sign, taking about 84 years to complete all twelve signs. Since groups of people with Uranus in the same sign are separated by 84 years, the influence of this planet in a sign is generational. The personal implications of Uranus in your life are described by its house position and the aspects it makes with other planets in your natal chart. It describes areas of unpredictability, and where you or your life style may be different than those around you. It relates to the unusual or unique. Friends and associations to which you belong are also indicated, as is your potential involvement with science and technology, computers, and the media.
URANUS in GEMINI
The generation of individuals born with natal Uranus in Gemini want freedom of speech and communication. Research and development of innovative technology and methods of communication are eagerly undertaken. All new ideas get attention, and freedom of information is emphasized.
Neptune rules those who are oppressed or abandoned; the misfits of society. On a higher level it rules visionaries, and those who are glamorous and charismatic. It represents spirituality, mysticism, and ideals. Neptune is in one sign for approximately thirteen years, taking about 164 years to complete its cycle through all twelve signs. Since 164 years separate people born during its transit of one sign and those born when it returns, Neptune's significance in any sign is described as generational or historical. On a personal level, Neptune's house position and the aspects it makes with other planets in your natal chart will describe spirituality, abstract thinking, illusion, disillusionment, and other areas of your life where things aren't always what they seem. It rules derangement, guilt, persecution, and describes the potential for experiences related to confinement, abandonment, and addiction or physical intolerance to drugs.
NEPTUNE in LIBRA
During the most recent period of Neptune in Libra in 1942-1957 the establishment of the United Nations was typical of the Libran effort to establish peace. Neptune's influence is also evident since the U. N. has had minimal effect in accomplishing its goals. Equality (Libra) for minorities (Neptune) may get attention but real solutions may prove illusive.
Pluto takes approximately 248 years to make one cycle through all twelve signs. The period Pluto spends in each sign can vary from twelve years to thirty two years due to the eccentricity of its orbit. Like atomic energy (a force ruled by Pluto), the presence and direction of Pluto's energy are never obvious until it is used. Pluto's influence in any sign is interpreted as generational or historical. In your personal life, Pluto's significance is interpreted from its house position and the aspects it makes to other natal planets in your horoscope. Pluto rules intense energy, and describes the areas in which you consciously or subconsciously seek to exercise power or control. Pluto is also linked to your karmic responsibility, and in this respect, it describes the areas where you must gain the deepest level of understanding.
PLUTO in LEO
Pluto's last period in Leo was 1938-1957. Leo rules the king or representative government. During Pluto's transit of Leo in the late 1600's and early 1700's, John Locke, philosopher of the English Revolution and American Revolution, wrote his famous essays stating that governments existed by virtue of voluntary agreements and their function was to protect the rights of individuals.
PART TWO: THE OUTER YOU
In Part Two you will read about the twelve houses of the horoscope. The houses represent areas of life in which you operate on a daily basis. You will read descriptions of how you handle the circumstances you encounter in each of these areas, according to your nature, personality and other traits as they are outlined in Part One.
The first house and the sign that rules the first house, which is also known as the Ascendant or Rising sign, describes your outer personality and physical attributes. To some extent it also describes your health and the type of illnesses you may experience.
A Capricorn Ascendant indicates individuals with energetic, success-oriented personalities, and determination to satisfy their personal goals. The shrewdness and open ambition associated with the sun or moon in Capricorn does not always show up so overtly in the personality of those with Capricorn Ascendant but these traits are present nevertheless. Most of them are very capable managers and supervisors, willing to accept responsibilities and positions of authority.
They strongly identify with the material world and tangible assets. Unless other factors in their personalities or backgrounds interfere, they are not likely to adopt easy-going, "take me as I am" attitudes. They feel more comfortable with formality. They want to be aware of all the rules of social conduct and adapt their actions to fit these structures. Consciously or subconsciously they specifically choose the company of people who make them look good. It is not unusual for handsome Capricorn Rising males to select less attractive wives or, beautiful Capricorn Rising women to select less attractive female friends.
Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, planet of structure, restriction and longevity. It is often an indication of a difficult birth or restricted childhood. However, it doesn't matter what particular difficulties life presents to these individuals, their biggest challenge is always themselves. They are apt to be disappointed with some aspect of their personalities or appearance and may develop conflicting behavior to deal with these feelings when they surface. Some of these individuals practice strict self denial, while others abandon themselves to hedonistic pleasures as a form of self destruction. They may even exhibit both types of behavior. At every turn they confront fears and insecurity. How well they deal with the conflict marks their success as well adjusted adults. Capricorn ruling the first house raises the competitive spirit and by no means dictates the presence of a somber or colorless personality. On the contrary, it implies individuals who are apt to possess overcompensating cheerful personalities, and they willingly accept responsibilities and hardships which they are apt to feel they were born to endure. There is always a choice to be made, and the right one is never easy because it usually involves success which must be earned.
Capricorn Ascendant is usually indicative of abstemious eating habits which help these individuals avoid gaining too much weight. Sensitive skin, finely textured hair, brittle bones, and dental difficulties are apt to be their common physical complaints
The second house describes material assets, how you handle monetary income, and the potential ways it may be earned. It also indicates the values and priorities you establish throughout life.
CAPRICORN on 2nd HOUSE
Capricorn ruling the second house is not an indication of great wealth nor does it imply a lack of wealth. It indicates individuals whose material assets, values and priorities are likely to be a constant source of concern. However, worry over money may be what motivates them to acquire enough income that poverty never becomes a reality. There is also potential that some of these individuals will rebel against monetary restrictions, and, valuing the pleasures of life more than security, they waste their resources. Even in those who are miserly, or at least very conservative about spending money, there are conflicting patterns of behavior to which they may fall victim. Appropriate to the old adage of being "penny wise and pound foolish, " they can be foolishly extravagant when it was unnecessary and excessively prudent when a more generous attitude would have been wise. This behavior applies to more than just money. Their biggest fear, for example, may be that others will take advantage of their time and talents. Establishing the correct values and priorities, and reacting to monetary advantages, or disadvantages, as the case may be, are life's biggest challenges.
The third house describes your mental state, intellectual orientation, self-expression and communication, early education, mechanical dexterity and skills, immediate environment (neighborhood), and siblings. It indicates physical actions, and transportation, especially within your immediate environment. To a certain extent the third house also describes the job or health of your father.
PISCES on 3rd HOUSE
Pisces ruling the third house indicates those with developed intuitions and special interest in spiritual matters and occult subjects. They are apt to have high intelligence but also mental laziness, an unwillingness to explore areas of thought that appear to be too much work. A parent, in most cases the father, is apt to be employed in fishing or maritime industries, chemistry, photography, medicine (especially homeopathy, podiatry, or cosmetic surgery), psychology, areas involving feet which could mean working in a shoe store to being a dancer, or areas that involve minority groups, the disabled or institutionalized. He may suffer hypochondria, mental confusion, or hard to diagnose illness. Pisces ruling the third house may also mean individuals who are particularly sensitive even clairvoyant with siblings. There is also the possibility of loss of siblings, or siblings with drug dependencies. Illegal drugs may be used or sold by neighbors. There can be mental confusion, and it helps if these individuals spend a certain amount of time alone or in quiet environments, especially near the ocean. They like to use a pet name or alias, and (unless they develop a fear of water) enjoy travel by boat.
The fourth house describes your residence, domestic environment, and family members, especially your mother. It indicates the beginning as well as the end of various cycles in your life.
ARIES on 4th HOUSE
Aries ruling the fourth house indicates individuals whose energy and vitality are primarily linked to family or to some aspect of home or domestic life. This description can have a wide range of potential outcomes. It may indicate for instance, that their occupations involve real estate, interior design, architecture, or family counseling, or, that their business is operated in their homes. The Aries influence in the case of some of these individuals, may also mean fear of their parents or that one of their parents, most likely the mother, may be domineering. There is also the negative possibility of a volatile, sometimes violent domestic life. Fire is also a potential hazard. On the positive side, the Aries influence implies very active domestic lifestyles, and that their homes are likely to be designed or decorated with a distinctly masculine orientation. If given the opportunity, they will want to build their own homes. They may be the first ones to live in a particular area, perhaps as an unconscious reflection of the pioneering spirit associated with the Aries influence on their fourth house.
MERCURY in 4th HOUSE
Mercury in the fourth house indicates those who prefer to work at home as bookkeepers, writers, researchers, and teachers. They are apt to have a sizable collection of books, magazines, and other written material in their home. If they happen to be more mechanically inclined than intellectually oriented, their home becomes the repository of an array of mechanical devices. Many possess artistic and mechanical skills that enable them to make household repairs and do some impressive interior decorating. They may end up living with a sibling or in the same neighborhood as their siblings. They don't mind allowing their home to be used for community meetings or other neighborhood projects. Negative factors in their personality or background can mean argument or separation from siblings as well as estrangement and disagreement with neighbors. A restless nature indicates many changes of residence, frequent alterations to their residence, or more than one residence at a time. They may be involved in buying or selling real estate, or some aspect of that business.
The fifth house describes your creative talent and imaginative powers, capacity for enjoyment and the pursuit of pleasure, romance, children, and speculative ventures.
TAURUS on 5th HOUSE
Taurus ruling the fifth house indicates individuals with potential for raising the pursuit of pleasure to a fine art. They are apt to have merry, sociable and generous natures, with the capacity to genuinely enjoy the physical pleasures life has to offer. They may be just plain lucky as well. They may, for example, be very obese but dress with such good taste they manage to look good anyway, or they are able to move gracefully despite their size. They are apt to have such wonderful manners and personal charm others don't notice or become offended if they happen to overindulge themselves. They may be the world's great lovers and their conquests don't seem to mind being only one in a long line of romantic partners. A fifth house Taurean influence indicates artistic creativity and many of them are talented stage or costume designers, musicians, artists, writers or illustrators. They are likely to have wonderful rapport with children, understanding what activities will amuse and entertain them. Negative potentials for Taurus on the fifth house include individuals with problems concerning children or romance, or who have bad luck in speculative ventures.
SUN in 5th HOUSE
While it does not necessarily mean unbridled hedonism, those with natal Sun in the fifth house have enhanced appetite for pleasurable activities. They may find it difficult to attain certain levels of maturity. To attain it, some will repress their desire for even modest pleasures. Their personal identification is strongly tied to artistic or creative talents, children, romantic associations, and social life. There is danger that in order to impress and indulge others, they will waste talent and resources on luxuries and entertainment. They are romantic and humanitarian, vital if not always strong, and noble if not always wise.
SUN trine MOON
Sun trine Moon indicates individuals apt to be pretty well satisfied with themselves. This aspect is not a certain indication they will have an outward tendency for self-promotion, and for some, it may be more about having an inner contentment that helps them stand up to the trials of rejection and other personal disappointments in life. They have a strong (or perhaps just lucky) life force and energy when survival becomes the issue.
SUN sextile SATURN
Sun sextile Saturn suggests individuals who may have to work a little harder to meet people who can help them, or encounter situations that can help them get ahead. However, with perseverance they nearly always succeed. It also may take a little more time before they either develop their goals or can actively pursue them, but this too merely takes patience and preparation.
The sixth house describes your job, daily responsibilities (paid and unpaid), and those who work for or with you. It also represents your health, and physical fitness.
GEMINI on 6th HOUSE
Gemini ruling the sixth house indicates individuals who tend to keep very busy whether they have a job or work in the home. However, it doesn't mean they always accomplish their tasks. They can, for example, become involved with too many projects at one time and never quite get any of them finished. Or they may be preoccupied with unnecessary details or needless tasks they are convinced need doing. They enjoy work that involves a wide variety of tasks and frequent change of schedule or change of scene. The influence of Gemini also implies they may have more than one job at a time. It also suggests individuals who work as librarians, writers, researchers, teachers, trainers, physical fitness experts, or who work in communication, sales, or with computers. They may work or have interest in geography, geology, weather, stamp collecting, and travel. Whatever their job happens to be, they can usually be depended on to generate a lot of paperwork, reports, memos, and lists.
VENUS in 6th HOUSE
Venus in the sixth house indicates those who prefer jobs that involve working either with a partner, a number of co-workers, or the public in general. They are apt to be very sociable in a working environment and adept at settling disagreements. Ability to carry out their tasks is influenced by the status of their working relationships. They find it difficult to work efficiently in an atmosphere of continuous disharmony and confrontation. They want to get out of their work an equal measure of what they put into it, and become discouraged by insufficient wages, lack of promotion and recognition, or too many assignments that have nothing to do with their skills or the reasons for which they were hired. There is potential for marriage with a co-worker or with someone they meet through their job. Potential work areas that attract them are related to health, beauty, fashions, books, law, counseling (especially marriage counseling), art, design, jewelry, flowers, and public relations.
VENUS conjunct URANUS
Venus conjunct Uranus indicates those who are very social and have no trouble making a wide variety of friends and acquaintances. They love to be involved in all types of organizations in which, more often than not, they hold positions of leadership. As a result of their social orientation, they are excellent organizers and successful fund raisers. Artistic talent in these individuals is likely to be unusual to some degree.
VENUS sextile PLUTO
Venus sextile Pluto implies those with analytical ability, potential for enhanced intuitive powers, and the tendency to get involved with secret schemes, either their own or those of others. They can be very discreet when necessary. Shrewd observers of human behavior, they use this understanding to gain control of situations in which, more often than not, they emerge the winners.
URANUS in 6th HOUSE
Uranus in the sixth house indicates those who seek a job that allows maximum personal freedom. The ideal situation is to work for themselves. If that isn't possible, the next best thing is to be able to select their own schedule, set their own deadline, and work at their own pace. It is difficult for them to sit still for long periods of time or be saddled with repetitive, uninteresting tasks. If the challenge of the job fades, they may either quit and go on to something else, or find ways to make their work more exciting. These individuals are apt to experience many changes of employment. Their job may unexpectedly or abruptly be terminated, but they are just as likely to leave on their own out of boredom and restlessness. They may be attracted to unusual lines of work. More traditional areas in which they are likely to be employed include medicine, computers, sales, social work, international finance, fund raising, electronics, or teaching. Though these individuals may be very healthy most of the time, the influence of Uranus implies that illness tends to occur suddenly or unexpectedly, and at highly inconvenient times. These individuals may adopt unorthodox or unusual methods to maintain their health and physical fitness.
The seventh house relates to marriage and partnership or joint ventures of any kind. It describes how you interact with people and how others tend to regard you. The seventh house is associated with legal matters, negotiations, contracts, and all open confrontations, pleasant as well as adversarial.
CANCER on 7th HOUSE
Cancer ruling the seventh house indicates those who are often the beneficiaries of valuable assistance. Whether or not they ask for it, they engender strong, protective or nurturing instincts in others. When these individuals achieve outstanding success, there is a good chance it was not without impressive help from others. They are vulnerable to the influence of others, and though there are usually some differences between the type of influence a seventh-house Cancer has on males as opposed to females, the influence can be interchangeable in one form or another. In a male's chart, it indicates he is likely to select a wife who strongly resembles or exhibits the characteristics of his mother. He may marry a woman that adopts a mother's role toward him as well as that of a wife. It is also possible he will marry someone younger than himself. A female with this Cancerian influence usually exhibits strong emotional identification with her husband. She will be dominated by marrying a man with a forceful nature, or indirectly dominated by his money or status. Even if the marriage fails, she may have difficulty finding psychological release from her relationship. The positive side of Cancer's influence is the potential for close, loving relationships.
SATURN in 7th HOUSE
For those with Saturn in the seventh house, the biggest lessons in life involve relationships and how well they relate to other people in general. It is hard for them to establish quick or light-hearted contacts with others. Whether or not these individuals encourage it, others may regard them as an authority figure or at least very competent in some area. As a result, they either keep themselves in a constant state of turmoil trying to live up to what they think others expect of them, or they may totally avoid making commitments to others. They are apt to experience difficulty in getting others to cooperate. For them, marriage will not be without responsibilities. They may not succeed should they marry in haste, or their spouse may be sickly or a burden in some way. Other potentials include those for whom marriage is simply an easy path to security, those who marry someone much older, and those who develop such negative opinions about marriage that they avoid it altogether. In spite of these possibilities, Saturn does not doom the prospects for wedded bliss. Many of these individuals enjoy stable, long-lasting unions. If adversity does come along, it can make the alliance even stronger. Others may think these individuals have gained little or nothing by marriage. However, these individuals, as well as their spouses, may not share or be the least bit adversely influenced by such outside opinions.
The eighth house is related to taxes, debt, death, legacies, and the income you receive through marriage or business partner(s). It describes your resourcefulness, and your ability to develop and use material assets as well as personal skills and abilities. The eighth house also indicates sexual attitudes and behavior.
CANCER on 8th HOUSE
Cancer ruling the eighth house indicates individuals who know exactly what they want and will go about satisfying their desires with remarkable tenaciousness. They are not likely to be glib or open about emotional needs, though when they are sure a particular situation is well in hand, they can be brutally frank and explicit about what they want. Others may find it difficult to fathom their true emotions, especially since they can appear to be emotionally satisfied even when they are not. They are apt to have instinctual responses and may come to rely on their intuition in handling finances and other resources. They may be attracted to mysteries, the occult, and the arcane. Though the Cancerian influence on the eighth house suggests the strong possibility of inheritance, it is just as strongly evident that their family and family connections may be among their most valuable resources. They are very vulnerable in matters of sex and romance, but there is potential for great strength as well as selfishness, so in many cases, they give as good as they get.
MARS in 8th HOUSE
Mars in the eighth house indicates those with intense energy and stamina. Where they focus their energy is not determined solely by Mars in the eighth house, but there is likely to be a certain aggressiveness and concentrated energy connected with almost everything they do. They are sure to have very specific desires and no hesitation about trying to gratify them. They may be secretive or circumspect in their movements and activities, or give that kind of impression. The negative potential includes those who are deeply possessive or vengeful. The influence of Mars suggests an active sex life, intense feelings concerning sexual matters and toward the opposite sex. Many of these individuals develop remarkable ability to understand sexuality from a psychological as well as physical point of view, and to do research or counseling in this field. They are usually physically resourceful, and have talent for doing more than one thing extremely well. They are likely to possess mechanical and/or artistic skills that are especially valuable in renovation and remodeling.
MARS sextile NEPTUNE
Those with Mars sextile Neptune are not always lucky, but they may often be able to benefit from a lucky hunch. It also suggests opportunities occur not so much through care or planning but because they happen to be in the right place at the right time. Opportunities for these individuals may come through religion, art, the occult, photography and/or mathematics.
MARS conjunct PLUTO
In most cases Mars conjunct Pluto indicates those with remarkable physical and emotional strength. They are apt to have endless capacity to work hard and play hard. The problem is that they can be too intense or aggressive at times which makes others feel ill at ease.
