Career Report

" Career Report"

This report outlines the career implications of your astrological chart.  It contains a wealth of information about your strengths, talents, assets, challenges, and hidden potentials.  To avoid getting lost in the details, you may wish to orient yourself by reading the following three sections that summarise the major influences in your chart:

1) The Sun's Sign and House Interpretations - your core identity issues.

2) The Balance of Elements and Modalities - your psychological needs.

3) The Most Active Planets, Points, Signs, & Houses - your dominant drives and desires.

Having read these summary sections, you will be in a better position to understand the more detailed interpretations and to put them in perspective.  Read this material with an open mind and an attitude of self-discovery.  There are more than 100,000 career choices catalogued by the U.S. government.

To find a fulfilling career, you should first identify your talents and interests and then seek work that fills you with enthusiasm and a sense of being alive.  The horoscope is a useful tool in this process.  The interpretations in this report are based on your natal chart cast

The Three Outer Planets:





This section reviews some of the technical aspects of astrology used to generate this report.  If you wish to go directly to your personalised interpretations, skip this section and return to it at a later time.  The personal information begins on page 5.

This report interprets your birth chart from the point of view of career factors in the horoscope.  The material is drawn from four sources: (1) the astrological literature, (2) Carl Jung's writings on psychological types, (3) scientific research on vocation and the planets (especially the work of French statistician Michel Gauquelin), and (4) the author's experience as an astrologer over many years.

Many of the interpretations assume that you know your birth time accurately within a few minutes.  If you are uncertain of the exact time, you can either cast a chart for SUNRISE of your date and place of birth or choose the UNKNOWN birth time feature of the program.  The sunrise chart provides an informative general report for anyone born on the same date and in the same place on earth and offers a valuable perspective on vocational issues.  Clicking on the Unknown time button calculates the Moon and planets for Noon for the place of birth, but places them in a solar houses chartwheel.  The unknown time report omits interpretations for time-sensitive points.

This material is based on large statistical samples.  Most people find that about 80% of the interpretations fit them closely whereas about 20% appear less applicable.  If contradictory traits appear in the report, it is likely that both traits are aspects of your personality, but they are in conflict or vie with each other for expression.  Astrology affords one of many perspectives on career potential.  You should weigh the contents of this report with other sources of information such as your school record, job experience, vocational testing, your own sense of your likes and dislikes, and input from people who know you well.  Astrology can guide you by suggesting options, but you alone have the ultimate responsibility to decide on a career path.

The birth chart outlines your potentials -- what you may become depending on how you develop your talents and confront your challenges and liabilities.  It also helps you to identify your essential needs and chief motivations.  The chart can both validate what you know of yourself and suggest further possibilities.  It is up to each of us to weigh these factors in deciding on a career path that will be satisfying and promote personal growth.  There are many paths open to each of us; our final destination depends on the choices we make along the way.

The natal horoscope taken in its entirety is a symbol of the person as a whole.  Jung called this type of symbol a mandala.  The signs of the zodiac represent twelve basic needs (and their corresponding challenges) that must be met in the course of human development.  A particular planet can occupy any of the twelve signs and thus has available twelve different modes (signs) for expressing its fundamental planetary drive or energy.

The houses of the horoscope symbolise the twelve broad areas of life where we seek to fulfil our basic needs.  The planets signify the fundamental urges, drives, energies, or functions of the human personality.  Each planet occupies a particular sign and a particular house.  In addition, the planets make connections among themselves (the aspects) that clarify how these energies connect with each other.  Soft aspects (sextiles, trines, and conjunctions of harmonious planets) show natural abilities and things that come our way easily without much toil.  Hard aspects (squares, oppositions, and conjunctions of inharmonious planets) show challenges and talents that require work to develop but that may lead to significant achievements.

In vocational astrology the second, sixth, and tenth houses are the most important.  The second house indicates what resources (talents, values, money, and assets) are at our disposal for developing our self-worth and making a living.  The sixth house symbolises the work environment, our co-workers, and the type of day-to-day labour involved.  The tenth house is the quintessential house of career and shows where we can become successful and achieve recognition in the eyes of the world.  Pay careful attention to the second, sixth, and tenth houses when reading this report.  Consider the signs on their cusps, the planets ruling those signs, and the planets within those houses.

Also consider the strengths and weaknesses of this type of information.  A computer-generated interpretation can only list and describe the individual astrological factors in your chart, but it cannot synthesise them into a coherent story.  You will need to put everything together into a meaningful whole that best fits your life experience and personal development.  At some point, you may wish to consult a professional astrologer for further insight into your birth map.

An important key is to pay close attention to any themes that come up repeatedly in the report.  Such recurring themes represent significant needs that must be met for you to have a satisfying career.  In addition, because the planet Saturn is so closely linked to what we do in the world, it is especially useful to study the information about Saturn in your chart.  In several places, there are lists of various occupations taken from the astrological literature.  These job lists should be understood merely as illustrations of general principles rather than as specific recommendations of a career to pursue.  It is not possible to pinpoint a single specific vocational choice in a horoscope.

Regarding the Gauquelin research, the author has found that Gauquelin's findings about the meanings of planets in high intensity zones generalise to planets that are emphasised in other ways, according to the rules of traditional astrology.


The horoscope is divided into twelve sections or "houses," which are patterned after the twelve signs of the zodiac.  Each house represents a different area of life, and the sign of the zodiac on the cusp of each of the houses describes how we express the matters governed by that house.  In vocational astrology, the most relevant houses are the First House whose cusp is the Ascendant, the Second House of income, the Sixth House of daily work, and the Tenth House of Career whose cusp is the Midheaven.  The houses are derived from your exact date, time, and place of birth.

The Rising Sign or Ascendant

The Ascendant is the sign of the zodiac that intersects the eastern horizon at the moment of birth.  It is closely linked to our sense of personal identity and reflects how we present ourselves to the world.  Each sign can be described by its Quality (Cardinal, Fixed, Mutable), its Element (Fire, Earth, Air, Water), and its Polarity (Yin, Yang).  Cardinal signs are outgoing and initiate activity; Fixed signs consolidate, build, and resist change; and Mutable signs are adaptable and make way for a new cycle.  Fire signs are intuitive and inspirational; Earth signs are practical and dependable; Air signs are mental and communicative; and Water signs are sensitive and emotional.  Yin signs are receptive and inner directed, whereas Yang signs are assertive and outer directed.

Cancer Ascendant

Cardinal, Water, Yin

Keywords: nurturing, intuitive, sensitive, protective, tenacious, imaginative, musical, conservative, cautious, frugal, security-conscious, moody, family-oriented.

With Cancer rising, you tend to be a bit on the quiet side and may not be sufficiently assertive when it comes to getting your needs met.  You are unlikely to want to take charge and instead may prefer to let someone else deal with other people or manage a situation.  You generally prefer a more indirect, behind the scenes approach.  You enjoy taking on challenges and generating new ideas, but you may be a little weak on the follow-through.  You work well in a crisis or under pressure and prefer to have the freedom to pursue your own interests.  The Water element gives you good intuition, emotional sensitivity, and a desire to heal or otherwise take care of others.  Because of your moodiness, you may prefer to work by yourself in a quiet setting.

Key phrases for Cancer are "I feel," "I nurture," and "I protect."  People with Cancer here often gravitate toward occupations in which they can emphatically attend to the needs of others by providing some sort of product or service.  Cancer is a sign connected with mother, home, country, and domestic issues; and there is often a close link to one's family in career matters.  You may have a knack for understanding the moods and tastes of the general public.  You feel a strong need to derive emotional satisfaction from your work by being part of a supportive and nurturing unit.  Cancer is a tenacious sign and you are likely to show great determination in pursuing your career goals.  In afflicted charts, career setbacks may be due to disregard for tradition and family values, severing family ties, sexual indiscretion, or excessive emotionality.

Occupations found among people with a prominent Cancer include: health care (e.g., nursing, medicine, psychiatry, psychology, social work), the humanities, teaching, politics (serving the needs of the country), banking, show business, publishing, the restaurant industry (chefs, caterers, restaurateurs), real estate, commerce, and home construction.  Musicians, poets, and dancers frequently have a Cancer Ascendant.  It also occurs in the charts of authors of cookbooks, fix-it-yourself books, textbooks, and children's books.  Novelists and playwrights with a prominent Cancer produce works that reveal great psychological understanding.  Cancer may also suggest work in plumbing, shopkeeping, the hotel or food business, laundry work, or market gardening.  Cancer is a symbol of the oceans, and the occupation may involve dealings with liquids, the use of water, or the sea.  An interest in mysticism, psychic phenomena, and the occult is often present.

Some notable personalities with Cancer rising include Johann Sebastian Bach, Helena Blavatsky, Barbara Bush, Cher, Robert De Niro, Albert Einstein, Judy Garland, Bill Gates, Saddam Hussein, Jessye Norman, Rudolph Nureyev, Julia Roberts, William Shakespeare, and Leo Tolstoy.

The sign, house, and aspects of the Moon, which rules Cancer, will give further clues about your self-assertive drives.  The same holds true of the decan ruler(s) below.

THIRD DECAN: Your Ascendant lies between 20 and 30 degrees of Cancer.  Hence, your sense of identity also comes under the influence of the third decan of Cancer, which is governed by PISCES, NEPTUNE, JUPITER, and Chaldean ruler, the MOON.  You are likely to be especially sensitive, imaginative, creative, and compassionate.  The combination of the Moon with Neptune/Jupiter in this water sign produces many fine artists, musicians, poets, actors, fiction writers, fashion designers, and filmmakers.  Some well-known people with this decan rising include Bill Blass, Truman Capote, Tony Curtis, Salvador Dali, Jackie Gleason, Stephen King, Julia Roberts, and Vincent Van Gogh.

Aries Midheaven

Our vocation is shown by the tenth house, the sign and decan of its cusp (which is the Midheaven or MC in most house systems), the ruler(s) of the tenth, any planets therein, and any aspects involving tenth house planets, the tenth house ruler(s), or the MC.

Aries is the crusading warrior who thrives on competition, challenge, danger, and battle.  Key phrases include "I am," "I pioneer," and "I boldly go where no man has gone before."  Your career must provide an opportunity for initiative, boldness, leadership, assertiveness, and self-direction.  You value your independence and do not like subordinate positions.  An Aries Midheaven suggests work that involves courage, energy, enthusiasm, daring, risk-taking, dexterity, the use of force, and vigorous physical activity.  Aries rules the "head," and persons influenced by Aries often want head an enterprise, service, or organisation.  Aries likes to be at the helm -- commanding, leading, taking charge, supervising, piloting, and directing.  The person with a prominent Aries resonates with the words of poet William Henley (who had three planets in Aries): "I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul."

Typical Aries occupations include Mars-governed activities such as sports, police work, the military, executive positions, fire fighting, mechanics, engineering, carpentry, iron work, meat cutting, tree surgery, dealing in firearms, driving vehicles, piloting aircraft, exploration, and fields that use weapons, tools, vehicles, or metal instruments.  Many surgeons, engineers, butchers, politicians, and architects have this placement.  Your career must furnish an outlet for the independence and physical energy of Mars.  A number of Aries influenced individuals are drawn to teaching, training, recruiting, journalism, and investigative reporting.  In afflicted charts, there may be impulsive behaviour, problems with anger, criminal activity, or trouble with the law.

The sign, house, and aspects of Mars, which rules Aries, will give further clues about career potentials in your chart.  The same holds true of the decan ruler(s) indicated below.

SECOND DECAN: Because your Midheaven lies between 10 and 20 degrees of Aries, your career comes under the influence of the second decan of Aries, which is governed by LEO and Chaldean ruler, the SUN.  Your father is likely to have a profound influence on your choice of career.  There is usually a strong sense of pride, excellent leadership ability, and a desire to be in command.  You seek an occupation that will allow you to shine, display your talents before others, and receive admiration.  There is often tremendous ambition and a desire to rise to the top. Leos are often natural athletes, actors, and performers.  They like to take on challenges and be in charge of other people.  The Leo influence often gives an interest in teaching or in working with children.  Some notable persons with this placement include Jeremy Irons, Jessica Lange, Sting, and Leslie Uggams.

Leo Second House Cusp

Income and resources are shown by the second house, the sign (and decan) of its cusp, the ruler(s) of this house, any planets therein, and by any aspects involving second house planets, the second house ruler(s), or the cusp of the second house.

With Leo here, you would do well at work that allows for leadership, organisational and administrative functioning, self-promotion, and creative self-expression.  Leo, the Lion, is king of the jungle, and you may wish to rule your work environment.  Your outgoing and friendly nature could lead to an interest in jobs such as performer, entertainer, model, dancer, musician, comedian, journalist, recreational director, personal trainer, or occupations involving the theatre or entertainment industry.

Leo is connected with gold and investments, and some with the placement become bankers, investors, stockbrokers, jewellers, or cosmetologists.  Teaching ability is often indicated, and occupations involving children are not uncommon.  Leo is fond of animals, nature, and the outdoors, and may indicate an interest in occupations such as forest ranger, landscape gardener, tree surgeon, naturopath, veterinarian, or other work with animals or out of doors.  The sun rules Leo and may give an interest in jobs connected in some way with light, heat, fire, or illumination.

Sagittarius Sixth House Cusp

Our daily work and working environment are shown by the sixth house, the sign (and decan) of its cusp, the ruler(s) of this house, any planets therein, and by any aspects involving sixth house planets, the sixth house ruler(s), or the cusp of the sixth house.

With Sagittarius here, you can benefit from work requiring foresight, a willingness to take risks, and the need to adopt a long-range perspective and anticipate future trends.  Your occupation may be connected to a university or other institutional setting where you have contact with foreigners or people of a different background.  You benefit vocationally from activities that expand your horizons, whether they be travel, higher education, communication over long distances, the study of philosophy or religion, or contact with other languages and cultures.

There is often a talent for jobs requiring mental activity, writing, and communication skills, such as publishing, editing, translating, lecturing, broadcasting, journalism, advertising, reporting, teaching, or work involving the Internet.  Sagittarius is also related to the law, forensic work, churches, preaching, the clergy, import/export, foreign interests, nature, the outdoors, sports and athletic activities.  There is often a fondness for large animals (especially horses).  You may be somewhat of a perfectionist who especially values a job well done.  Artistic or musical talent is common.  If you are scientifically inclined, your intellectual talents could make you a fine chemist, engineer, psychologist, physician, social scientist, inventor, medical educator, or computer specialist.  Divination and other spiritual pursuits may also fascinate you.

Planets in Signs and Houses

Sun in Pisces

The Sun symbolises our core identity and basic life energy.  For us to feel authentic, our careers must allow for expression of our Sun sign's creativity and will to be.

Keywords: sensitive, intuitive, creative, imaginative, musical, artistic, poetic, caring, healing, self-sacrificing, humanitarian, spiritual, private, escapist, fond of solitude.

Pisces, the twin Fish swimming in opposite directions, is a sign that is kind, adaptable, sensitive, sympathetic, peaceable, and highly intuitive.  Neptune, the modern ruler of Pisces, is god of the boundless and transcendental seas.  Pisceans are often philosophical, otherworldly, and imaginative.  Pisces is often referred to as the sign of poets, artists, musicians, dreamers, psychics, and mystics.  Many Pisceans are a bit absent-minded and inattentive.  They are drawn to careers that enable them to make use of their rich fantasy lives or to explore alternate states of mind.  They enjoy dealing with the unseen, mythological, or hidden aspects of reality; and they have a greater than average inclination to experiment with mind-altering methods or substances.  Some go in search of mystical or spiritual experiences.

In a statistical survey of sun signs by Paul Field (1964), the largest number of prominent people in Who's Who were born under Pisces (with Capricorn in second place).  Such prominence may be due to the traditional rulership of Pisces by expansive and entrepreneurial Jupiter, the king of Mount Olympus.  In this same survey, Pisces produced many musicians, sea captains, and U.S. Senators and Representatives.  The Piscean sensitivity to collective desires can make them popular politicians, entertainers, performers, models, musicians, or writers.  Famous Pisceans include Sidney Poitier, Ansel Adams, Elizabeth Taylor, Albert Einstein, Meher Baba, John Steinbeck, George Washington, Senator Edward Kennedy, Frederick Chopin, George Harrison, Jackie Gleason, Darryl Strawberry, Rudolph Nureyev, Spike Lee, Rob Lowe, and male model Fabio.

Typical Piscean interests that may lead to career choices include medicine, hospital or prison work, hypnosis, pharmacology, dreams, mythology, psychology, the unconscious, spirituality, meditation, and theorising on a grand scale.  Many Pisceans desire to render some type of service and may become nurses, doctors, teachers, social workers, therapists, anaesthesiologists, radiologists, hypnotists, clergy, or restaurateurs.  Others find themselves working in the arts, photography, dance, music, theatre, travel, education, creative writing, or the occult.  Pisces is a private sign that often prefers to work alone, in secrecy, or behind the scenes.  Some become librarians, publishers, laboratory researchers, museum workers, or private investigators.  Pisces is also linked to occupations dealing with water, fluids, alcohol, drugs, narcotics, chemicals, oils, and the oceans.  Pisceans are able to sense what the public desires and can do well in fashion, advertising, acting, filmmaking, and other pursuits that depend on public taste.

Further clues to understanding your basic motivations can be found by studying the house, sign, and aspects of Pisces rulers Jupiter and Neptune.  The same holds true for the decan ruler(s) described below.

FIRST DECAN: Your Sun lies between 0 and 10 degrees of Pisces (approximately February 19 - 28), your sense of identity and purpose in life come under the influence of the first decan of Pisces, which is governed by PISCES, NEPTUNE, and Chaldean ruler SATURN.  The influence of Saturn makes you more serious, ambitious, disciplined, and grounded than the average Pisces.  You may have a talent for business, science, or other serious studies, and you are definitely capable of hard work.  Saturn sometimes indicates depression and low self-esteem.  With Neptune prominent, there may be a tendency to escape into drugs or alcohol.  The strong Neptune in this decan also suggests an interest in social work, teaching, creative writing, film, stage, music, poetry, the arts, occult interests, matters related to liquids, or some type of spiritual or inspirational work aimed at improving the lot of mankind.  Considerable psychic ability may be present.  Members of this decan include Elizabeth Taylor, Ansel Adams, W.H. Auden, Edna St.Vincent Millay, Drew Barrymore, Frederick Chopin, Julius Erving, George Harrison, Michael Bolton, Jackie Gleason, Edward Kennedy, John Steinbeck, Elizabeth Taylor, Ralph Nader, Winslow Homer, President George Washington, and mystic Meher Baba.

Sun in the Eighth House

The Sun represents our individuality, willpower, and sense of self.  The house occupied by the Sun reveals areas where we can feel authentic and express who we truly are.

The Sun here gives an interest in eighth house matters such as sex, death, rebirth, transformation, joint resources, taxes, other people's money, and so on.  You are likely to be determined and resourceful.  There is often an interest in mystery, investigation, research, detective work, psychic phenomena, spiritual development, and occult subjects.  Many with this position have healing ability and are drawn to medicine, psychology, or caring for the sick and dying.  A fascination with atomic power, the physical sciences, and scientific research is also common.  Financial and business acumen is common and may lead to careers in banking, accounting, big business, entrepreneurial ventures, or other positions of wealth and power.

Moon in Capricorn

The Moon represents our feelings, emotions, capacity for empathy, psychological reactions, and habitual or subconscious patterning.  It signifies our need for security and our mothering instincts -- how we feel about, nurture, and care for one another.

A Capricorn Moon usually indicates that you are ambitious, cautious, pragmatic, reserved, and a bit shy.  You are also likely to be methodical, practical, thorough, hard working, efficient, and determined to succeed.  There is often a felt need for status, power, and authority that might lead you to a career in politics, the entertainment industry, or the law.  Many with this placement have an interest in down-to-earth occupations related to providing some useful or necessary service (electrician, mechanic, nurse, carpenter, structural engineer, shopkeeper, plumber, cook, glass blower, printer, accountant, government worker, computer networker, etc.).  You desire material security and firm foundations in your life.  Your appreciation of the need for a structured society may activate an interest in political science, government, politics, or civil rights.  Traditional astrology warns that, in afflicted charts, this position of the Moon is associated with callous, ruthless, dishonest, sly, or calculating behaviour, usually because of having felt insufficiently cared for or nurtured in childhood.

Moon in the Sixth House

It is important for you to feel useful and productive on the job.  You are a careful and methodical worker who values caring for or being of service to others.  You are comfortable working with details and may have an interest in health, hygiene, teaching, editing, writing, computer programming, data processing, medicine, nursing, childcare, psychiatry, pharmaceuticals, therapeutics, agriculture, or anything related to nurturing, feeding, nourishing, or helping things to grow.  Because of your emotional sensitivity, you are likely to feel a need to look after people, animals, or the environment.

Jobs connected with the sea, the uses of water, or matters related to understanding past influences or psychological development may also be appealing.  Your manual dexterity and attention to detail could lead to an interest in fields as varied as sketching, drawing, printing, typing, drafting, car detailing, sculpting, chiropractic, massage, hands-on healing, tree surgery, dog grooming, composing and playing music, etc.  There is often a fondness for pets and small animals.  The Moon's gift of keen intuition in the vocational sixth house sometimes leads to work involving Tarot reading, intuitive counselling, astrology, or psychic development.

Mercury in Pisces

Mercury is the messenger of the gods.  This first planet from the Sun represents our mind and thinking process -- how we learn, analyse, reason, and communicate.  It also reveals how we use our hands, move our bodies, and explore our surroundings.

You have a receptive, intuitive intellect that allows you to perceive things that would normally escape the notice of a purely logic mind.  Some may consider you psychic.  There is often an interest in religion, philosophy, literature, psychology, unconscious processes, psychotherapy, meditation, prayer, mysticism, and spirituality.  You are especially aware of the needs of the less fortunate members of society.  Your creative imagination and rich fantasy life may find expression in music, poetry, dance, photography, fashion, design, creative writing, or works of art.  If Mercury is heavily afflicted, there is a risk of nebulous or escapist thinking that can lead to problems with addiction, mental illness, deluded beliefs, or self-undoing.  Used constructively, this energy can be put to use in fields such as social work, healing, counselling, spiritual development, mental health, or anything that benefits the public welfare.  You appreciate the value of silence and the need to spend time alone.

Mercury in the Eighth House

An eighth house Mercury indicates a shrewd and penetrating mind.  You are a natural detective and investigator who delves into the root cause of things.  Your capacity for research, analysis, and diagnosis can lead to success in medicine or one of the sciences.  There is often an interest in psychology, mental functioning, ferreting out secrets, detective work, psychic phenomena, and occult matters.  Financial acumen is common and may lead to success in banking, accounting, investing, and so forth.

Venus in Capricorn

Venus is the goddess of love.  This second planet from the Sun rules our affections, values, enjoyments, and how we relate to others.  Venus also governs art, beauty, adornment, pleasure, fun, and our sense of appreciation of the finer things in life.

Venus in Capricorn in common in the charts of those involved in the world of business, finance, banking, commerce, and government.  You are in control of your emotions, and may at times be somewhat cool and calculating.  You are probably hard driving and perfectionistic, but may be somewhat status-conscious.  As a worker, you are dependable and practical.  There is often organisational or managerial ability.

Venus in the Sixth House

A sixth house Venus reveals a talent for detailed work that provides a service or practical benefit to the physical or mental health and welfare of others.  Your job may involve computers, information processing, typing, clerical work, or technical methods.  A fondness for animals is common.  Typical occupations include veterinarian, chiropractor, nurse, dietician, chef, secretary, receptionist, computer programmer, chiropractor, therapist, attorney, baker, and Internet service provider.

Mars in Capricorn

Mars, the fourth planet from the Sun, is the ancient god of war.  Mars represents our libido, initiative, and physical energy.  The sign and house placement of Mars reveal how and where we express our passion, assert ourselves, and expend our energy.

You are a self-motivated, serious, and rapid worker who is good at starting things and working under pressure.  Your common sense, practical attitude, and problem solving abilities make you a natural for work in organisation or management.  You have great ambition and are capable of directing tremendous energy into pursuing your goals.  There may be mechanical ability, an aptitude for engineering, or skill at the use of tools or instruments.  You are likely to possess financial acumen and to have a good head for business.  You could succeed at any type of work that requires disciplined systematic effort toward achieving a tangible result.

Mars in the Sixth House

A sixth house Mars indicates a capacity for hard work and meticulous attention to detail.  You probably have a strong physical constitution and the discipline to keep yourself in shape.  An interest in health, nutrition, hygiene, research, analysis, and therapeutic techniques can lead to work in a medical, scientific, or mental health field.  There is often mechanical or technical ability and a fondness for taking things apart to reassemble them and improve their functioning.  You may also enjoy assembling complicated devices from their component parts.  Good verbal, writing, and computer skills are common and may lead to jobs in sales, journalism, communications, or Internet related tasks.  Your job may involve vigorous physical activity or may be connected with Mars-ruled matters such as police or military work, athletics, competition, fire, weapons, cutting, or sharp instruments.

Jupiter in Libra

Jupiter, the fifth planet from the sun, is the king of Mount Olympus and the most benefic of all the planets.  Jupiter represents expansion, wisdom, the higher mind, and the broadening of horizons.  The sign and house placements of Jupiter show how and where we encounter good fortune and continue to grow in body, mind, and spirit.

Jupiter in Libra enhances your sense of fairness, justice, and impartial decision-making.  You are able to grasp both extremes of a polarised situation and to achieve some type of balanced understanding.  Your objectivity and sense of proportion could make you an excellent scientist, researcher, mathematician, or accountant.  There is often a strong religious interest.  Libra is a sign connected with beauty, balance, form, and harmony.  Jupiter here may indicate a career involving the arts, music, literature, decorating, fashion, or any field connected with the appreciation of beauty.  Because Libra rules partnerships, the individual may achieve success working in collaboration with others.

This placement is common in the charts of bankers, theoretical mathematicians, lawyers, judges, prosecutors, artists, designers, college professors of literature, counsellors, advisors, psychiatrists, and those who deal with the adjustment or balancing of relationships.  Your refinement and good taste are assets in any career.

Jupiter in the Third House

You excel at all kinds of intellectual tasks and may have considerable scientific talent.  There is often an interest in writing, literature, communication, schooling, and travel.  There is a gift for lecturing or public speaking.  This placement is common in the charts of teachers, authors, educators, journalists, and those who wish to reach others with their ideas.

Saturn in Sagittarius

Saturn, the sixth planet from the Sun, is the most distant planet that can be seen by the naked eye.  It marks the outer limits of the visible solar system and has been called at various times the Cosmic Teacher, Father Time, and the Grim Reaper.  Saturn symbolises limitations, hardships, boundaries, fears, and the lessons we must learn.  Like all good teachers, Saturn rewards hard work, discipline, and persistent effort.

In Sagittarius, Saturn gives an appreciation of philosophy, literature, science, religion, the law, society, and higher education.  You have strong ideals and you value tolerance, wisdom, and human understanding.  You could do well in fields that utilise your intellectual gifts and capacity for disciplined thinking.  Careers that are favoured may involve anything that expands your horizons in an orderly or methodical manner.  Examples include education, teaching, travel, languages, foreign interests, journalism, writing, publishing, filmmaking, broadcasting, or other ways of disseminating information.  You are able to put your intuition and ability to forecast future trends to practical uses.  Some with Saturn here are good at organising or managing activities related to sports, animals, or work outdoors.  With persistent effort, you can become an expert or authority in your field.  Risks with this position include overvaluing your own moral code and trying to impose your beliefs on others, or, in extreme cases, ignoring societal norms and taking the law into your own hands.

Saturn in the Fifth House

With Saturn in the fifth house, you are capable of serious and disciplined creative work.  Your artistic or musical endeavours make seem effortless to others, but you know how much practice and toil you must put into a successful performance.  There is often a knack for banking, finance, or speculative investing.  You enjoy learning and teaching, and your hobbies and recreational activities may have a serious or educational cast.  Saturn represents restrictions and limitations, and sometimes this placement indicates that you will have to overcome obstacles that hinder or delay your creative self-expression.


In our solar system, Saturn is most distant planet from the earth that is visible to the naked eye.  The three outer planets -- Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto -- lie beyond Saturn's orbit and can only be seen by telescope.  These outer planets spend many years travelling through each sign, and thus they tend to affect an entire generation.  Only their house placements and close aspects are significant in the interpretation of an individual horoscope.  Though not personally significant by itself, the sign placement of the three outer planets can reinforce similar traits found elsewhere in the horoscope.

Uranus in the Twelfth House

Uranus is the first planet beyond Saturn's orbit and outside the boundary of the visible solar system.  It symbolises breaking through barriers via originality, inventiveness, and progressive ideas.  Uranus reveals where we can express our novelty and uniqueness.

With Uranus in the twelfth house, you have a complex, idiosyncratic inner life that you tend to keep hidden.  Others may regard you as a person of inscrutable motivations. Most likely you are highly intuitive and psychologically insightful.  There is often a strong interest in poetry, creative writing, mystery, secrets, spirituality, mysticism, the occult, reincarnation, and paranormal phenomena.  If Uranus is well aspected, you may have unique artistic, literary, cinematic, theatrical, or musical talent.  Some with this placement achieve recognition for their unusual, provocative, or revolutionary creative efforts.  You may find yourself working to help others in very innovative ways.

Uranus in Cancer

Uranus in Cancer marks a generation with unique and progressive ideas about family, domestic life, patriotism, history, and traditional values.  Some members of this group pioneer new techniques for healing, counselling, teaching, and caring for others.  Others give us novel insights into past influences on our current behaviour.

Neptune in the Third House

Neptune is the ancient god of the oceans, which are fluid, without form, and boundless.  It dissolves the limitations set up by Saturn.  This planet symbolises all that is cloudy, nebulous, dreamlike, mystical, or illusory.  Neptune represents compassion, intuition, empathy, sacrifice, and spiritual development.  The placement of Neptune reveals where we may care for others, pursue our ideals, and be at one with the universe.

A third house Neptune indicates a highly intuitive mind and a keen imagination.  There is often a talent for creative writing and an interest in occult, otherworldly, mysterious, psychic, transcendental, or spiritual matters.  You may enjoy travel abroad or activities related to water or the sea.   A fondness for art, literature, poetry, dance, or any form of graceful movement is also common.  Many with this position enjoy learning about dreams, hypnosis, intuition, the unconscious, and the workings of the human mind.

If Neptune forms any aspect with Saturn, you are likely to have considerable talent for scientific or medical work.  In afflicted charts, a third house Neptune can indicate nebulous, strange, or delusional thinking that may lead to unsettling behaviour which is potentially harmful to self or others.

Neptune in Libra

Neptune in Libra often indicates idealism about partnerships and close relationships.  This position of Neptune reinforces any talent for art, music, song, creative writing, counselling, psychology, the law, or politics elsewhere in the chart.

Pluto in the First House

Pluto is the ancient god of the underworld who ruled the realm of death and darkness.  It represents immense power, transformation, radical change, renewal, and rebirth.  The placement of Pluto reveals where we express our needs for control and regeneration.

Pluto rising lends great emotional intensity to your personality.  You may be drawn to careers in which you can radically transform other people or the environment.  Pluto tears down and destroys in order to rebuild.  There is often an interest in medicine, psychology, healing, detective work, research, investigation, spirituality, the occult, or matters connected with death and dying.  You like to probe, cut, and penetrate beneath the surface.  Like the Scorpion, which is ruled by Pluto, your words and actions may carry a venomous sting.  The intense energy of Pluto often finds expression in sports, sex, or other vigorous activities.  Pluto here can also incline toward extreme behaviour and may confer a desire to have power and control over others.

Pluto in Leo

Pluto in Leo enhances leadership ability and any creative, artistic, or dramatic tendencies elsewhere in the chart.

North Node in Libra

The Moon's North Node reveals areas of potential for growth.

In Libra, the Moon's North Node advises you to develop your sense of fairness, harmony, diplomacy, proportion, balance, and justice.  Success follows upon learning how to make long-term commitments, which involves learning how to share and how to give and take in relationships.  You should avoid selfishly or impulsively seeking immediate gratification, since this turns others off and works against your own best interests.  You would do well to develop your talent for balancing relationships.

North Node in the Third House

In the third house, the Moon's Node suggests that you hone your skills for communication, writing, learning, teaching, debating, lecturing, rational analysis, and empirical research.  Many with this position do well in occupations related to sales, commerce, public relations, transport, travel, or tasks that involve being on the go or having contact with many people in the local environment.  There is often a fondness for agile physical activity and rapid motion that can lead to success in sports, racing, horseback riding, and similar fast-paced endeavours.  The third house is linked to the spoken and printed word, and you may be drawn to occupations that involve reading, editing, printing, publishing, journalism, speaking, or anything connected with the facile use of your tongue.  A third house Node suggests that, for you, variety truly is the spice of life.

Part of Fortune in Taurus

The Lot of Fortune is an Arabic Part related to material well-being.

With the Part of Fortune in earthy Taurus, you can succeed at fields that allow you to assume responsibility and see tangible or practical results of your efforts.  Your work may involve luxury, comfort, money, finance, fashion, beauty, jewellery, valuables, design, music, photography, or artistic endeavours.  There is often a fondness for physical exercise and bodily motion that can find expression in dance, athletics, massage, sculpting, horseback riding, and similar pursuits.  Taurus is connected with the earth and things of the earth; hence, you may have an interest in farming, agriculture, biology, bacteriology, etc.

Part of Fortune in the Eleventh House

The house position of the Part of Fortune reveals an area of life that can bring you good fortune.  In the eleventh house, it suggests that benefits may come from impartial, detached, and objective reasoning.  You may have a talent for science, computers, electronics, mechanics, or technology.  Your interest in other people may draw you to fields like counselling, psychiatry, social science, alternative medicine, astrology, social work, or disciplines that aim to improve the lot of humankind.  Sometimes this influence acts through the opposite fifth house which rules children and all forms of artistic or creative self-expression.

Balance of Elements and Modalities

Introversion and Extraversion

The follow section takes a broad look at your chart from the viewpoint of the predominance of the four elements or temperaments (Fire, Earth, Air, and Water) and the three modalities or modes of action (Cardinal or initiating, Fixed or stabilising, Mutable or adapting and transitioning).  It draws on Jungian psychology and Jung's notions of introversion and extraversion to describe how the same astrological trait manifests for introverted versus extraverted personalities.

Introverts are inwardly directed, prefer to work alone or with a small number of people, generally reflect before they act, and would rather read about or ponder an issue than socialise or talk with others.  Extraverts show the opposite characteristics.  Extraverts are outwardly directed and come across as sociable, positive, outgoing, and confident.  They love to talk and socialise, and they prefer to be with others rather than alone.

The value in determining whether you are more introverted or more extraverted is that the same astrological factors can be utilised to pursue different careers depending on whether you are focused inwardly (introverted) or outwardly (extraverted).  For example, a person with a preponderance of the element water/feeling in his or her chart might prefer to write and publish poetry, if introverted, or might use that water element to become a successful actor or performing musician if extraverted.

If you have access to the Internet, you might wish to take the Keirsey Temperament Sorter Quiz to determine your degree of introversion and extraversion.  It is located at where you can also read about the career implications of your personality style.

Having decided whether you are more introverted or extraverted, read the following section to see which elements and modalities are most emphasised in your natal chart.

Abundant Water

Keywords: emotional, sensitive, caring, compassionate, imaginative, poetic, musical, psychological, healing, nurturing, spiritual, intuitive, psychic, inner directed

An abundance of water in a chart correlates with Jung's function of feeling.  You are sensitive to the feeling tones and emotional resonance of whatever or whomever you encounter.  Water is very intuitive and tends to make decisions on the basis of emotions.  You are concerned with values and with the appreciation of relationships, of things, of events, and of the psychological states of yourself and others.  Memories and reminiscences are important to you for their emotional value.  Water seeks to penetrate beneath the surface, to find the deeper meaning of things, and to understand and remedy any problem it uncovers.  You probably have a special talent for the musical, metaphorical, "right brain" type of thinking.  Psychic ability is often present.

You are a loyal friend to the significant others in your life, and you have a strong sense of heritage and tradition.  Your sense of time is focused toward the past and its emotional significance in your life.  You are readily able to establish an empathic connection with others and may be drawn to jobs that utilise this talent (e.g., sales, customer relations, counselling, etc.).  Water is intuitive and possesses a gentle healing energy that can lead to success in nursing, psychology, psychiatry, or any of the healing professions.  Water's attunement to feelings is also favourable to careers in the arts, dance, music, acting, or any field that involves sensitivity to the emotional states of others.  You will need to find a way to make use of the dreamy, mystical, otherworldly quality of Water in your career path.

Introverted feeling types direct their attention inward to their own emotional and psychological life.  They are drawn to careers where they can express themselves creatively and often in solitude.  Here we find poets, composers of music, writers of romance novels, mystics, monks, cloistered nuns, recluses, hermits, meditators, and others who withdraw into their private world in search of spiritual development and inner peace.  At its extreme this emotional withdrawal into oneself can result in states of melancholy and depression.

Extraverted feeling types enjoy human relationships and readily connect with the feeling states of others.  Often they are seen as the "life of the party."  They are exquisitely aware of subtle nuances in the feeling tone within a situation, and they can use their personalities to adjust or manipulate their emotional environment.  Their talent for connecting with others emotionally can make them successful actors, performers, entertainers, or political leaders who are able to sway the masses.  Their desire to nurture may lead them to careers in nursing, counselling, social work, psychotherapy, the ministry, restaurant work, or other professions that minister to the needs of others.

Abundant Earth

Keywords: practical, concrete, empirical, tangible, sensible, down-to-earth, results-oriented, able to manage material and financial resources.

An abundance of earth in a chart correlates with the Jungian function of sensation.  You readily become cognisant of empirical reality.  You consciously perceive immediate data, facts, and situations.  You are a careful, solid, and dependable person who pays close attention to details.  There is usually a capacity to make objective evaluations, think critically, and analyse matters logically. You enjoy being regarded as a person of wisdom and authority.  Others trust you to get the job done and view you as a person with good head on your shoulders.

You tend to live in the present and to rely heavily on the information taken in by your five senses in a literal, concrete way.  You make decisions only after doing your research and gathering all the facts.  Your approach to life is practical, pragmatic, hard-nosed, and realistic.  One of your strengths is a highly developed common sense, and you especially enjoy seeing tangible results of your activities.  Some sensation types are quite sensual and even hedonistic.

The earth signs represent structure and material reality -- everything that is solid, tangible, and securely rooted.  Your motto may well be, "I'll believe it when I see it," as you tend to be swayed only by hard, empirical evidence.  You are drawn to a career in which you can use your body to manipulate physical reality in some way.  You like to build, organise, structure, and bring projects to completion.  You are good at carrying out plans in a sequential and orderly manner; and you generally prefer to work in a reliable, steady workplace setting.  Others may see you as a hard-nosed realist who is interested in results that increase your sense of status and power.  Some of your weaknesses may be a failure to pay sufficient attention to your intuition, a lack of enthusiasm (unless fire is strong), and an insufficient awareness of future trends.

Introverted sensation types are able to accumulate and store in their minds vast amounts of factual information.  They may have a knack for meticulous scientific research.  Introverted sensors enjoy doing manual tasks that produce some sense-related, material result (e.g., cooking, gardening, mechanics, carpentry, sculpting, painting, book writing, etc.).  Their inner-directed sensual awareness is occasionally reflected in clairvoyant abilities.  At times they are so inwardly directed that others regard them as passive, and they may also view themselves as passive victims of external forces.

Extraverted sensation types desire to sense, experience, and act upon their physical environment.  They tend to be practical, to have good memories, and to do well with details.  They like to use and enjoy their bodies and to manipulate the material world.  Labourers, people who work with tools or materials, athletes, bankers, sales persons, marketers, business people, etc., are often among the group of extraverted sensors.

Abundant Cardinal

Keywords: pioneering, assertive, initiating, authoritative, constructive, action-oriented

Many planets in cardinal signs suggest a career that meets your need for self-assertion, inspiration, and independent action.  You are a go-getter with tremendous initiative and leadership potential, but you sometimes fail to follow through on the good ideas that you so easily generate.  Others appreciate your outgoing and sociable style, and look to you for leadership in initiating new projects and coming up with new ideas.  You like to make decisions for yourself, and the strength of your personality gives you natural executive ability.  There is potential for success in running your own enterprise.  You are comfortable being in charge and letting the buck stop with you.

Abundant Substance

Keywords: practical, resourceful, organised, managerial, hard-working, skilled, methodical, systematic, materialistic, worldly, status-conscious

Many planets in houses 2, 6, and 10 suggest a career that meets the need of achieving some type of respect or recognition for producing tangible and practical results, often involving some type of analytic ability or technical skill.  There is frequently a desire to work with products or services in the material world, and there is often a knack for business or administration.  You value stability and have a strong sense of duty and responsibility.

Abundant Endings

Keywords: sensitive, caring, psychological, probing, insightful, healing, compassionate, private, committed, musical, artistic, spiritual, attuned to the mysteries of life and death

Many planets in houses 4, 8, or 12 suggest a career that meets the need for emotional involvement, caring, and sensitivity toward others.  Such a career often deals with matters that are private, subconscious, personal, psychological, spiritual, or related to serving the needs of humanity.  You have a strong desire to understand the hidden motivations of people and the underlying meanings of situations or events.  You are likely to be highly receptive, intuitive, concerned, and empathic.

This occurs frequently in the charts of those who work closely or intimately with others (e.g., counsellors, therapists, etc.) and those who seek to master a topic in depth (e.g., scientists, researchers, analysts, etc.).  It is common in the charts of singers and composers whose music touches us deeply, and also among writers and filmmakers of psychological masterpieces.

Abundant Cadent

Keywords: flexible, adaptable, transitional, mental, clever, assimilating, idea-oriented

A preponderance of planets in the cadent houses (3, 6, 9, and 12) suggests versatility, adaptability, and intellectual interests.  You are likely to enjoy experimentation, study, new learning, and mental activity.  There is often a talent for teaching or otherwise conveying ideas to others.  You may also have an ability to manage and organise large amounts of data.  An ideal career would satisfy your need for mental stimulation and continued learning throughout your life.

Some occupations associated with abundant cadency include scientist, researcher, bacteriologist, technical writer, computer programmer, data processor, teacher, counsellor, novelist, and editor.

Planets in Aspect

Introduction to Aspects

As mentioned in the Introduction, the planets signify fundamental urges, drives, or functions of the human personality.  Astrologers have discovered that when planets either align (conjoin) or form certain configurations (angular patterns) with one another, a blending or combination of their energies occurs.  These patterns are called "aspects" and are measured in terms of the angles formed by the planets.

The aspects are divided into major (0, 60, 90, 120, and 180 degrees) or minor (all other aspects, e.g., 30, 45, 72, 135, 144, 150 degrees, etc.).  Major aspects are more evident and generally have a more profound effect on personality and vocation.  The names of the aspects, according to the number of degrees between planets, are as follows.  Major: 0 = conjunction, 60 = sextile, 90 = square, 120 = trine, and 180 = opposition.  Minor: 30 = semi-sextile, 45 = semi-square, 72 = quintile, 135 = sesquiquadrate, 144 = biquintile, and 150 = inconjunct, or more properly the quincunx.

Aspects can be either easy or difficult.  Of the major aspects, the sextile (60 degrees) and trine (120 degrees) are considered easy or harmonious whereas the square (90 degrees) and opposition (180 degrees) are considered difficult or stressful.  The conjunction can be either easy or difficult depending on the nature of the planets involved.  A planet involved in difficult aspects is considered "afflicted" since it carries some form of hardship through the difficult aspect.

In the next section, you will find a detailed description of the most significant aspects in your chart.  At first reading, the large amount of material in this section may seem a bit overwhelming.  Rather than get lost in the details, look for repeated themes that reinforce or clarify the earlier sections of this report.

The aspect descriptions below are arranged in order of "strength," which is a measure of whether the aspect is major (stronger) or minor (weaker) and how close the planets are to being at exactly the angle specified by the aspect.  The closer the aspect is to exact, the stronger its influence is likely to be.  However, if the planets involved in the aspect are strongly emphasised in your chart, then even a weak aspect between them can be quite significant.

Venus square Midheaven  (Strength:  7.48)

Venus closely aspecting the Midheaven suggests that your tact, refinement, culture, gentility, and good taste are reflected in vocational matters.  You are likely to be popular and may pursue a type of work that appeals to public tastes.  This is sometimes an indication of artistic, musical, poetic, or other creative talent.  Through its rulership of Libra, Venus may point to a career involving diplomacy, politics, the law, arbitration, mediation, consulting, counselling, psychology, partnerships, contracts, public relations, art, fashion, design, or decorating.  Many with this aspect provide some type of expert service to clients on a one-to-one basis.  You are able to see all sides of an issue, negotiate differences, and come to a reasonable compromise.  Through its rulership of Taurus, Venus may suggest an occupation related to the beauty or fashion industry, luxury goods, financial management, career counselling, program development, farming, building, or work dedicated to helping people develop their human potentials.

Moon conjunct Mars  (Strength:  6.64)

Moon/Mars aspects make you courageous, enterprising, robust, daring, outgoing, and enthusiastic.  There is often great physical and sexual energy, bodily vigour, and a love of life.  Good looks and sex appeal are also common.  Your ambition, drive, and assertiveness can lead to success in politics, athletics, education, or business.  Some with this aspect dislike discipline and feel a need to rebel, reform, or revolutionise.  A capacity for profound and penetrating thought is often present.  The down side is a tendency to go to extremes, take unnecessary risks, or otherwise behave in a self-indulgent or impulsive manner.

Sun square Saturn  (Strength:  5.93)

Sun/Saturn contacts bring focus and discipline to your self-expressive and assertive drives.  Saturn prudently regulates the vitality and life force of the Sun.  There is a serious cast to your personality, plus great ambition, discretion, determination, and organisational ability.  You have a highly developed sense of duty, tremendous powers of concentration, and a capacity for hard work and persistent effort.  Some with this aspect become loners who prefer to work privately or alone, or pursue careers that require years of study and depth of thought.  Saturn gives a desire to build and construct, to establish order, to lay firm foundations, and to control or govern responsibly in a moral and cautious manner.

There is frequently a knack for business, organisation, and management.  Because Saturn signifies rules, regulations, codes of conduct, structure, and disciplined thinking, you might consider a career involving government, administration, business, banking, the law, teaching, science, computer programming, mathematics, accounting, or library science.  This aspect often indicates self-made individuals who achieve success and recognition as a result of their own efforts.  You may go through a long period of apprenticeship with low wages on your way to eventual success.  Hardships early on, or difficulties with one of your parents, may spur you to great accomplishments as an adult, but you may need to exercise caution against callous, ruthless, or calculating behaviour toward others.

Moon square Jupiter  (Strength:  5.50)

Moon/Jupiter aspects indicate a person who is good-humoured, kindly, sensitive, compassionate, and generous.  Your natural friendliness and personal appeal make you a good salesperson.  Good business sense is common.  There is often restlessness, a liking for change and travel, and a fondness for ease and comfort.  You tend to be very imaginative and may enjoy fiction, literature, or philosophical speculation.  Others appreciate your ability to spin a good yarn.  Difficulties can arise through self-indulgence, and special care should be taken to use alcohol or drugs only in moderation.  Although you are likely to come in contact with the wealthy, you may be impractical or imprudent about personal spending and other financial matters.

Venus opposite Ascendant  (Strength:  4.21)

The Gauquelin research did not find a correlation between Venus and success in any particular field.  However, a strong Venus usually indicates good looks and a personality that is gentle, charming, friendly, sociable, poetic, and gracious.  This peaceable facade sometimes masks a great deal of cunning in relationships.  There is often diplomatic ability, a dislike of aggression, and willingness to compromise.  Venus is linked to artistic, musical, and other forms of creative expression.

Mars square Jupiter  (Strength:  4.14)

The energy of Mars and the expansiveness of Jupiter combine to increase your enthusiasm, liveliness, and optimism.  You are likely to be pioneering and adventurous, and you probably enjoy travel, flying, the outdoors, sports, vigorous exercise, and other Jupiter-ruled pursuits.  Often there is an interest in philosophical, legal, religious, theological, scientific, or political matters.  You enjoy learning about something and then spreading the word to others.  This can lead to success in broadcasting, teaching, the travel industry, promoting, propaganda, publicity, or advertising.  You like to display your talents before others.  There may also be a knack for Mars-ruled occupations that require courage, energy and risk-taking (e.g., police, military, etc.), or that involve the use of fire, explosives, weapons, or instruments that penetrate the body (e.g., surgery, acupuncture, etc.).  An interest in music, religion, and literature is common.

Stressful Mars/Jupiter aspects are often marked by restless excitability, moodiness, hyperactivity, quick temper, impulsivity, and a tendency to waste or extravagance.  This sometimes manifests as the abuse of alcohol or drugs.  A tendency to go to extremes can hinder your career development.  Failure to do things in moderation can make you your own worst enemy.

Jupiter sextile Pluto  (Strength:  3.99)

Jupiter aspecting Pluto increases your ambition, determination, and leadership. A desire for power and ability to influence others are frequently present.  You are hard driving and can rise to a position of prominence in your field.  There is often healing ability and an interest in working with those suffering from mental illness, abuse, oppression, or trauma.  A knack for matters related to money and finance is common.  You are able to organise and manage large projects, and you may have an interest in law, economics, languages, culture, and social reform.  This aspect occurs regularly in the charts of individuals who have achieved unique musical, literary, psychological, philosophical, pedagogical, religious, or athletic accomplishments.  There is often a fascination with matters that are secret, hidden, mysterious, paranormal, or occult.

Venus opposite Uranus  (Strength:  3.88)

Venus aspecting Uranus increases your sensitivity and love of beauty.  There is often an unusual, even eccentric, cast to your affections and emotional life.  Your originality, inventiveness, and non-traditional interests are an important aspect of your work.  There may be an interest in New Age topics or alternative methods of counselling or therapy.  You are likely to be popular, witty, humorous, romantic, and charming -- but a bit excitable and restless.  There is often a talent for the arts, music, literature, the theatre, and the entertainment industry.  If Mars is strong, you could do well working with metals in some way.  A major risk of this aspect is a tendency to live on the wild side, especially in your love life.  Sudden romantic attachments and subsequent break-ups can distract you from your career path.  You must choose your associates carefully and avoid taking reckless or foolish risks.

Stressful Venus/Uranus aspects tend to make you touchy, wilful, stubborn, and high-strung.  Some with this aspect develop emotional problems.  You may persist in a wrong-headed or unreasonable course of action simply because you feel a need to do it your way out of some extreme notion about personal independence.  You may be overly sensitive to rejection, and there is a risk of getting into difficulty because of an unconventional sexual life.  Sudden disruptions in romance can interfere with the smooth progression of your career.

Mercury trine Uranus  (Strength:  3.36)

Mercury/Uranus aspects indicate that you are an original and independent thinker who values intellectual freedom and autonomy.  There is often a capacity for abstract thinking and an interest in science, electronics, technology, and computer-related subjects.  You have quick reflexes and a good sense of timing.  This aspect is common in the charts of musicians, psychiatrists, astrologers, astronomers, research scientists, theoreticians, engineers, mathematicians, computer specialists, and physicists.  Your work may involve modern technology, innovative instruments, or novel modes of travel or communication.

Uranus square Midheaven  (Strength:  3.14)

With Uranus closely aspecting the Midheaven, you value your freedom, autonomy, and personal independence.  You may wish to be self-employed, do freelance work, or pursue an unconventional occupation.  There frequently exists some unique or unusual talent that makes you stand out from the crowd.  You are drawn to careers that involve creativity, inventiveness, originality, objectivity, insight, and alternative methods.  Often there is scientific or technical ability and a desire to reform society or improve the lot of humankind.

Some with this placement suffer an early estrangement from one of the parents, often the mother, who may have been in some way strange or eccentric.  Such an experience can lead to an interest in psychiatry, psychology, social work, or one of the helping professions.  Through its rulership of Aquarius, Uranus may indicate work requiring the application of specialised rules or techniques.  Typical Uranian careers may involve computers, the Internet, science, technology, engineering, physics, mechanics, aviation, meteorology, radio or TV, comedy, educational films, electronics, medicine, psychiatry, psychology, research, inventions, astronomy, astrology, New Age interests, social science, humanitarian causes, or civil rights.  Whatever you do, you hate drudgery and boring routine, and you need to keep learning about what makes things tick.

Venus semi-square Saturn  (Strength:  2.53)

Venus/Saturn aspects suggest that you are serious, idealistic, and willing to make sacrifices for what you desire.  You have a strong sense of duty, and you are happiest when meeting your responsibilities.  Astrologer Charles Carter described these as aspects of "spiritual beauty, born of material hardship and the absence of the ordinary pleasures of life."  Stressful Venus/Saturn aspects sometimes show difficulty with close relationships, and a tendency toward isolation, loneliness, and depression.  Most likely your parents had a profound influence on your development that has made you somewhat fearful and overly responsible or serious as an adult.

Moon inconjunct Pluto  (Strength:  2.49)

Moon/Pluto aspects lend great intensity to your emotional life and may prompt you to champion causes, or to assume extreme or fanatical positions.  You have a strong interest in understanding what motivates people; and you may be drawn to psychology, medicine, or any of the healing arts.  There is an interest in all that is secret or mysterious, often with a corresponding talent for research or investigation.  You have good intuitive abilities and may even be psychic.  A love of power, freedom, travel, and adventure is common.

Mercury inconjunct Neptune  (Strength:  2.36)

Mercury/Neptune contacts indicate an active imagination, sensitive perceptions, and heightened intuition.  Your mind is open to the more subtle and spiritual aspects of reality.  You have a gift for sensing public moods and anticipating future trends.  In adversarial relationships, you readily sense your opponent's motives and potential strategic moves.  This skill is useful for fields as diverse as diplomacy, creative writing, marketing, financial investing, military planning, and psychic investigation.  The creative imagination of Neptune often indicates a talent for art, music, painting, sketching, journalism, acting, film, photography, and so on.  You may also have an interest in studying Neptune-ruled matters such as oils, gases, chemicals, medicines, or anything involving the feet.  You may have psychic ability.

Stressful Mercury/Neptune aspects indicate an astute and cunning mind.  Often there is a lack of self-confidence, a tendency to worry and withdraw from life due to discouragement, and a proneness to either engage in or fall victim to some type of scheming or deception.  You may also have problems focusing your attention or be prone to dreamy, nebulous, or illogical thinking.

Jupiter conjunct Neptune  (Strength:  2.17)

Jupiter conjunct Neptune increases your intuition, idealism, and creative imagination.  There is often an interest in art, music, poetry, literature, creative writing, photography, illusion, film, acting, magic, metaphysics, religious life, and spiritual or mystical experiences.  You may work in fields related to healing, medicine, nursing, psychology, mental health, or aiding the disadvantaged or oppressed members of society.  Psychic ability is common and may be helpful in making investments or other speculative ventures.  A fondness for the ocean and things of the sea is common.  Your work may involve paints, oils, gases, chemicals, alcohol, narcotics, drugs, medicines, or anything related to the feet.  This aspect is often associated with financial success and material comfort.  In afflicted charts, however, it can manifest as gambling, risk-taking, escapism, self-destructive tendencies, or the use of addictive or mind-altering substances.

Sun biquintile Jupiter  (Strength:  1.81)

Sun/Jupiter aspects are generally a kindly and benevolent influence, and are common in charts of those who pursue a career in one of the professions (medicine, law, university professor, etc.).  You are likely to be quite bright and capable of significant intellectual achievements.  There may be talent for writing, teaching, or publishing; and there is often a fondness for horses and other large animals.  An enjoyment of travel, adventure, risk-taking, and creative self-expression is common.  You can benefit from ninth and twelfth house matters such as religion, spirituality, mental health, philosophy, publishing, broadcasting, promotional work, foreign interests, journeys, the sea, the law, literature, medicine, and the sciences.  It can also signal success in sports, entertainment, theatrical enterprises, investment banking, or in a military or naval career.

Moon square Neptune  (Strength:  1.64)

Moon/Neptune contacts indicate emotional sensitivity, creativity, heightened intuition, and a vivid imagination.  You may have musical, artistic, poetic, or literary talent.  There is often an interest in the hidden aspects of reality, divination, spiritual matters, healing, alternative medicine, psychology, social work, and the underlying or unconscious motivations of human beings.  This aspect is common, for example, in the charts of psychiatrists and their patients.  Your easy-going personality conceals a burning ambition to achieve something great or outstanding.  You will need regular periods of respite, solitude, or meditation to regroup your forces as you seek to make your mark on the world.  There may be a talent for film, acting, dance, fashion, sculpting, design, food preparation, speculative investing, legal or political strategizing, theoretical speculation, or other creative endeavours.  A fondness for travel abroad is often present.

Stressful Moon/Neptune contacts indicate a tendency toward gullibility, discontent, disillusion, excessive perfectionism, intrigue, abuse of substances, or involvement in scandal.  There is some risk of deception with this aspect, and you should avoid any kind of dishonest or shady dealings.  You are prone to play the martyr in close relationships; often sacrificing your own legitimate needs simply to maintain an unhealthy relationship. In extreme cases, there is a tendency to engage in fanciful and impractical thinking that borders on self-delusion.

Mars inconjunct Pluto  (Strength:  1.12)

Mars/Pluto aspects are emotionally intense combinations that increase your assertiveness, willpower, physical energy, and sexual drive.  You are likely to be adventurous, passionate, and resolute in pursuing what you desire.  Healing ability is often present.  This aspect also carries with it a certain explosiveness and risk of violence.  Your intense need to win at almost any cost can get you into hot water.  Dealing with some type of danger may be an aspect of your work.  You have a strong interest in uncovering hidden matters and penetrating beneath the surface to understand how things work.  You should guard against becoming obsessed with an idea or engaging in compulsive behaviours.


Our careers undergo cyclic changes that parallel the movement of Saturn through the birth chart.  The 29-1/2 year Saturn cycle can be divided into four 7-1/3-year quarter cycles.  As Saturn crosses the IC at the bottom of the chart, we begin to ride the wave upward from a period of subjective preoccupation and worldly obscurity to a new cycle of vocational growth.  During the first and second quarters, which last just under 15 years, we establish, build, and develop our new career directions.  When Saturn then crosses the MC at the top of the chart, we reach a career peak and consolidate our gains.  We are now on the downward slope of the wave (the third and fourth quarters of this Saturn cycle).  About seven years after Saturn conjoins the MC, we go through another period of intense vocational activity, just as Saturn is crossing into the final quarter, which is a seven-year stretch of relative obscurity, inner reflection and reassessment.  We then start a new 29-1/2 year career cycle as Saturn again crosses the IC.  The section below gives specific details based on a horoscope cast for your date, time, and place of birth.

In 1940, Grant Lewi published his groundbreaking analysis of Saturn's influence on career.  Saturn takes about 29-1/2 years to complete a journey around the zodiac.  During the time when Saturn crosses the 4th house cusp or IC (the "bottommost" or "darkest" point in the horoscope), Lewi noted that people "either fade completely from the picture, or take a new start in life, depending on their age and other considerations" in the chart.  This is similar to a New Moon, a time of darkness and new beginnings.

During the period from 1970 to 2050 covered in this report, the approximate dates of Saturn's passage through LIBRA are SEPTEMBER 1980 - AUGUST 1983, then JULY 2010 - OCTOBER 2012, and finally SEPTEMBER 2039 - JULY 2042.  At some point during these years Saturn will cross your IC, marking the end stages of a period of vocational obscurity.  Saturn's passage through the sign at the bottom of your chart SIGNALS A NEW BEGINNING OR A CHANGE OF DIRECTION IN YOUR CAREER.

Astrologer Don Jacobs further elaborated Lewi's findings.  According to Jacobs, the first quarter cycle (the 7-1/3-years when Saturn is travelling through roughly the fourth, fifth, and sixth houses as it approaches a square to the Midheaven) is a time of career "building."  During this first phase we are establishing a new career or laying the foundations for a new direction in our current occupation.  Jacobs calls the second quarter cycle (the next 7-1/3-years, beginning when Saturn squares the Midheaven to transit roughly the seventh, eighth and ninth houses) the period of "triumph" when the efforts of the period of building are starting to pay off.

About 14 1/2 years after crossing the IC or fourth house cusp, Saturn reaches the Midheaven, the "highest" and "brightest" point of the horoscope.  This is similar to a Full Moon and marks a peak in our career development.  IN YOUR CHART, A CAREER PEAK WILL OCCUR WHEN SATURN PASSES THROUGH ARIES, the sign on your Midheaven.  During the period from 1970 to 2050 covered in this report, the approximate dates of Saturn's passage through ARIES are from APRIL 1996 TO MARCH 1999 and again from MAY 2025 TO APRIL 2028.  These years are a time of achievement, accomplishment, harvest, recognition, and the assumption of new responsibilities.  You reap the rewards of all the work you have done for the past fourteen years.  However, if you have cut corners or prepared badly, the time has now come to pay the piper.

After passing the Midheaven, Saturn goes through a roughly 7-1/3-year period when it transits the tenth, eleventh, and twelfth houses (the third quarter cycle) as it approaches a square to the Midheaven.  Jacobs calls this the period of "coasting" when we enjoy the fruits of our career success at the Midheaven.  The final 7-1/3-year period commences with Saturn's square to the Midheaven and continues as it transits the first, second, and third houses.  Jacobs calls this the period of "obscurity" when we become self-absorbed and directed inward, contemplating our lives and thinking about future possibilities.  This subjective, inner period ends when Saturn again crosses the IC and begins a new cycle.

Prominent Chart Factors


The following section lists the most prominent or active planets, points (Ascendant and Midheaven), signs, and houses in your horoscope. Because the houses are determined by the exact time of birth, dominant houses are not calculated for charts with unknown birth times. You naturally tend to express the energy and symbolism of these planets, signs, and houses in most aspects of your life, including your vocation.  The rating system used here is based on the number and closeness of the aspects formed by each of the planets and points.

The dominant planets and points (Ascendant, Midheaven) reveal your basic drives and natural aptitudes that can be developed for their career potential.  Below are descriptions of the planets and points that are most active in your horoscope.

Jupiter Dominant  (Strength:  20.60)

Jupiter is an expansive, outgoing, and energetic planet that represents the urge to broaden your horizons through travel, higher education, wide-ranging communications, and contact with foreign cultures or those of a different background.  You excel at taking a broad view and seeing things in a visionary perspective.  There is often a talent for motivating, inspiring, and encouraging others, who may view you as grandiose or larger than life.  You are probably interested in philosophy, religion, spirituality, the law, politics, science, languages, foreign affairs, and the forecasting of future trends.  Professionals in medicine, religion, the law, and education often have Jupiter strong in their charts.

People with a strong Jupiter commonly work in sales, politics, promotions, professional athletics, entertainment, travel, shipping, import/export, broadcasting, public speaking, journalism, publishing, medicine, or big business.  You may be fond of sports, physical exercise, or outdoor activities, such as hiking, horseback riding, or the martial arts.  The Gauquelin research found expansive Jupiter prominent in the charts of journalists, actors, playwrights, politicians, executives, and military personnel.  In contrast, Gauquelin's research found that physicians and scientists had Jupiter relatively weakly placed.

If Jupiter forms many stressful aspects, you may have a tendency to extravagance and excess.  You must learn to avoid unwarranted risk-taking and to temper your enthusiasm with a strong dose of reality.

Moon Dominant  (Strength:  19.07)

The Moon symbolises emotions, moods, and instinctive behaviours.  You are likely to be highly intuitive, nurturing, caring, empathic, and sensitive to public moods and tastes.  You have a strong appreciation of history and of the influence of the past on present and future behaviour.  You value tradition and may wish to preserve historical treasures for future generations.  You also enjoy working with people and could do well in fields that take care of the emotional, physical, or developmental needs of others.  You have an intuitive feel for what the public needs or desires.

Teachers, nurses, cooks, midwives, counsellors, psychologists, social workers, environmentalists, preservationists, market researchers, healers, psychotherapists, veterinarians, physicians, and personnel workers often have a prominent Moon in their charts.  Musical interest and/or ability are frequent.  The Moon is connected to the tides and the seas, and you might be interested in a career in the navy or the maritime trades.  An active Moon also suggests a fondness for travel and communication.  It is also common in the charts of those who deal with the public or whose work appeals especially to women.  The Gauquelin research found a strong Moon in charts of politicians and successful writers.

If the Moon forms many stressful aspects, you may suffer from a fear of competition and a tendency toward shyness or emotional dependency.  To achieve success, you may need to master an inclination to be overly sensitive to the moods and feelings of others.

Venus Dominant  (Strength:  18.76)

Venus, the goddess of love, symbolises peace, harmony, attraction, union, diplomacy, and the balancing or adjusting of relationships.  You could do well in careers that require a refined sense of form, style, balance, and proportion.  Your tact and sense of fair play could lead to success as a counsellor, arbitrator, judge, lawyer, consultant, or any endeavour in which you offer your expertise and balanced judgement to customers or clients.  Venus loves luxury, sensual pleasures, and the finer things in life.  This feminine planet is typically strong in the charts of fine artists, musicians, designers, decorators, confectioners, and anyone who deals in items related to fashion, beauty, adornment, entertainment, or goods and services that appeal especially to women.  Venus is also a money planet and may indicate a talent for investing, banking, accounting, appraisal, finance, and so on.

If Venus is involved in many stressful aspects, you may prefer to avoid hard work and take the easy way out.  You will need to become more self-assertive so that you don't come across as indecisive in your effort to keep the peace and please other people at your own expense.


The signs of the zodiac indicate basic motivations, preferences, attitudes, and reaction patterns.  Below is a list of the most active signs in your horoscope in descending order of their dominance in your chart.

Capricorn Dominant  (Strength:  210.84)

Key Phrases:  I use, I control, I strive, I organise

Capricorn is cautious, pragmatic, ambitious, scrupulous, disciplined, conservative, dependable, reserved, organised, and hardworking.  Individuals with and active Capricorn want to rise to the top and often seek positions of leadership, power, authority, honour, control, and responsibility.  They can do well at business, administration, banking, bureaucracy, government, or at one of the traditional professions, which satisfy their need for status, command, and respect in their community.  They tend to be responsible and serious and may strike others as shy, pessimistic, or aloof.  Despite their serious streak, Capricorn persons have a good sense of humour and may possess comedic talent. Capricorn's capacity for persistent effort, attention to detail, and systematic methodology can lead to success in one of the applied sciences.

Capricorn's planet, Saturn, governs structure, time, tradition, self-discipline, caution, limits, efficiency, durability, antiquity, the reality principle, loneliness, hard work, guilt, and punishment.  Capricorn needs security and respects authority, tradition, and the laws of society. With Capricorn strong, you could excel in any career that demands "head over heart" type of thinking.  Because Capricorn governs the skin, bones, knees, and teeth, doctors with a strong Capricorn are often drawn to these areas of specialisation.  Since Mars is exalted in Capricorn, a prominent Capricorn is common in charts of athletes who excel in sports that require discipline and long hours of training.

Typical Capricorn occupations include administrator, manager, boss, organiser, industrialist, engineer, dentist, orthopaedist, economist, geologist, antique dealer, farmer, miner, mason, builder, construction worker, scientist, mathematician, sociologist, computer programmer, teacher, coach, political leader, supervisor, and law enforcement officer.

Libra Dominant  (Strength:  132.89)

Key Phrases:  I balance, I relate, I mediate, I make peace

Libra, the Scales, is a sign of balance, harmony, proportion, partnership, sociability, union, and the adjusting of relationships.  Since Libra is strong in your chart, others are likely to view you as co-operative, civil, refined, thoughtful, charming, artistic, diplomatic, peaceable, and somewhat wavering or indecisive. You have a highly developed sense of fair play and generally prefer to avoid confrontation.  There is often a talent for counselling, mediation, negotiation, networking, arbitration, politics, peacemaking, or diplomacy.  You could also do well in a career that allows you to take on clients or to work on behalf of others or for the public welfare.  Exchanging ideas and interacting with others come naturally to you.  Because Libra is a Cardinal sign, you might be interested in positions of authority and leadership.

Through its ruler Venus, Libra is associated with style, grace, form, and physical beauty and may indicate an interest in fashion, the arts, literature, popular writing, entertainment, film, music, modelling, buying and selling, or the beauty industries.  Your ability to strategize and see all sides of an issue could bring success in the legal, judicial, or military professions.  You excel at perceiving relationships and manipulating ideas.  Typical Libran occupations include psychologist, judge, lawyer, prosecuting attorney, author, art dealer, designer, beautician, decorator, graphic artist, host or hostess, performer, dancer, model, negotiator, diplomat, referee, auditor, accountant, sculptor, architect, and theoretical mathematician.

Cancer Dominant  (Strength:  99.74)

Key Phrases:  I feel, I protect, I save, I nurture

Cancer, the Crab, is the sign of the empathic mother and often indicates an interest in one of the human service professions.  Ruled by the fluctuating Moon, Cancer tends to be helpful, tenacious, moody, protective, caring, patriotic, and family oriented.  A strong Cancer is common in the charts of doctors, nurses, healers, teachers, pharmacists, psychotherapists, child care workers, homemakers, food service providers, nutritionists, cooks, caterers, domestic workers, social workers, and so on.  People with Cancer prominent have good memories, vivid imaginations, and a heightened awareness of feelings, which can make them fine authors or musicians.  Because of their emotional sensitivity, they are prone to worry and may withdraw when they feel hurt by criticism.

Cancer is a shrewd, intuitive sign with an excellent head for business and finance.  People with a strong Cancer have a natural feel for public moods and tastes.  Through its association with the fourth house, Cancer can indicate an interest in laying foundations, studying historical or psychological influences, or working with the natural environment.  Cancer is also related to careers related to agriculture, weather conditions, sailing, and the sea.  Typical Cancer occupations include midwife, plumber, hotelier, chef, farmer, historian, genealogist, oceanographer, fisherman, sailor, naval officer, psychologist, archaeologist, realtor, shopkeeper, financier, merchant, mime, comedian, or any work that calls for emotional sensitivity and creative imagination.
