Planetary Zodiac Signs
by Michael McClain (comments/questions/visit)
- It is assumed now that
you have obtained a copy of
your horoscope from Astrodienst or from another source, and you know
the placement of the Sun, the Moon and the planets in this chart. These
pages will delineate the astrology signs for the Sun, the Moon,
Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and the outer planets. If you do
those positions, you should return to the astrology
index page to learn how to secure a free horoscope which will
provide this information to you.
- The planets in signs
information that is being
dispensed here is based on the western or tropical zodiac. The western
astrological year begins around March 21 with the spring equinox. This
is when the Sun enters Aries. All of the sign positions are based on
this western concept. The tropical zodiac is used by most astrologers
in the western world and is gaining in popularity elsewhere. The pages
linked here will describe how the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars,
Jupiter, and Saturn tend to behave as they move through each of the
twelve signs of the zodiac.
Sun in the 12
Astrology Sun signs
- Every chart reading
should begin with the Sun as the
primary focus of astrology. The Sun's position in the zodiac is very
important, and most agree it deserves first consideration. It's the
core of the individual; the overriding nature and will. This is the
influence that describes the "you" that is trying to be in this
lifetime. This is your "awake" side, your consciousness and
outer-directed individuality. Thus, the Sun is the most important
single indicator, fueling the total personality. The nature of your Sun
sign is your true colors that you display to the world day in and day
out. The Sun passes through the 12 signs in one year.
Astrology Sun sign is Aries
The Sun is in this first
sign of the zodiac from
March 21 to April 20 each year. The symbol for Aries is the Ram,
because of the headlong, direct, and assertive nature of the sign. The
sign is also symbolized by seeds shooting out of the ground in the
springtime, suggesting a time and spirit of renewal.
- In Aries, the Sun is
highly action oriented. You like
to do your thing, and you are opinionated and direct in doing it. Your
Aries personality constantly wants to charge ahead, and insists on
being the one who organizes, rather than ever allowing yourself to be
led or organized by others. You have a hard time recognizing any point
of view except your own. Highly action oriented, when an idea strikes
you, you are off quickly to carry it out. Yet you are not so good in
seeing projects through to a conclusion. Follow-up and finish work are
not matters that suit your style. You constantly need new goals, new
projects, and new challenges.
- You are a quick learner
and a self-starter;
enthusiastic and curious. The main challenge for an Aries Sun sign
native is the control of impulses. You must avoid scattering forces,
for if you can learn to think before taking action, your energetic
nature will enable you to do much. Natural impulsiveness and inability
to listen to the advice of others sometimes involves you in
difficulties. To succeed, you must learn to think everything through
carefully before you proceed. Patience and the ability to plan are
areas in which you may have to apply extra effort. You must reflect on
the total effect of your actions to grow and progress in life.
- You may have a sharp
temper and a quick fuse as Aries
is ruled by Mars, the planet associated with war and combat.
Fortunately, you get over anger as quickly as it comes, and you never
hold a grudge. You are neither devious nor subtle in your actions. Many
Aries Sun natives are down right blunt. Only with concentration and
attention can you ever acquire much diplomacy and tact.
- With your natural Aries
inclinations, you have a true
adventurer's or pioneer's spirit; a longing for independence and a
tendency to fancy yourself as a free soul. Born to lead, but not born
to handle the mundane responsibility or bureaucratic red tape. When
faced with complex details, you become very frustrated. Fully matured,
your Aries spirit aspires to a gallant "never say die" attitude, and a
willingness to take advantage of each new opportunity that comes along.
sign is Taurus
- Taurus is the second
sign of the zodiac, and the Sun
resides in this sign from 21 April until 20 May each year. The symbol
of Taurus is the Bull, for reasons that will be developed in the next
- As a Taurus, you are
likely to be very patient, a
hard worker, and one of those people who constantly puts forth much
sustained effort. Your demeanor is slow and deliberate, and attempts by
others to hurry you rarely succeed. You need time to adjust to new
ideas and changes. You can be stubborn to the point of becoming rigid,
but you are practical and constructive in nearly everything you do. You
carefully consider options before starting any action or coming to any
conclusion. You function best under conditions where there is
predictability, and where you can exercise a degree of control.
- Good-natured and
friendly, your placid demeanor
rarely shows upset or anger. When you are aroused, as suggested by the
symbol of the sign, your reactions are very much like those of the
angered bull. This anger can be reckless, and often lingers.
- There is a certain
reluctance in the Taurus nature to
try anything new or different. You don't take many chances, and you
believe in sticking with the familiar and comfortable. There is not
much adventure in your soul, and it is probably fair to label you a
conservative individual. The danger with Taurus is the tendency to
become too narrow-minded, and to dismiss anything that can't be seen,
touched, smelled or tasted.
- You are not usually the
first to learn a lesson, but
when it is mastered, you are not likely ever to forget. Retentive and
steadfast, you don't scatter your energies. You may be lazy at times,
perhaps not spending any energy at all for extended periods. Yet long
term, you are very willing to assume responsibility and shoulder more
than your fair share of the load.
- You may be
materialistic, often showing interests in
money, security, and comforts in life. To those you love, you often
show your feelings in a material way, and you appreciate the same in
return. The Taurus personality is sometimes too concerned with money
and possessions. Perhaps a little indulgent and luxury-loving, you
relish creature comforts and appreciate beautiful possessions. Because
of these interests, you have good taste in clothing and furnishings.
You also may have a talent for landscaping and working with plants and
flowers to make your surrounding more pleasant and appealing.
- You may excel as a cook,
but even if you don't have
the inclination to prepare it, you certainly enjoy food; perhaps too
much. Because of this, you may have a battle with your weight. A slow
metabolism and lack of interest in exercise often compound this
- A natural interest in
art and music often leads to
careers or hobby pursuits in some form of art. Taurus is the sign that
rules the throat, so you may have a fine singing and speaking voice.
- Love relationships are
very important to you. Since
you don't like being alone, you may settle for a partnership that is
less than ideal, instead of accepting loneliness. Once settled in a
relationship, you are very steadfast and dependable. You are
exceedingly loyal, and make a very faithful friend. The most appealing
aspect of Taurus, that sweet and loving temperament, is the often
present when the Sun appears in Taurus.
sign is Gemini
- The Sun is in this third
sign of the zodiac from 21
May until 21 June each year. The symbol for Gemini is the Twins, and
its planetary ruler is Mercury.
- In Gemini the Sun is
active, restless and changeable.
You like plenty of variety in your everyday activities, in your
friends, and even in your diet. Your interests are many and
diverse--almost anything will attract your attention if only for a
brief time. Truly, this is the sign of the jack-of-all-trades. As the
story goes, you may find that unless you can develop your powers of
perseverance, you may be the master of none. Your varied interests can
result in a tendency for you to spread yourself too thin, sometimes
failing to follow through on projects you've begun.
- Being very curious, you
want to know and experience
as much as you can. Gemini is the sign of duality. You find it
difficult to limit yourself to one job, to one relationship, or one
hobby, as you constantly seek variety and mental adventure. You scatter
your energies because you don't want to miss anything. You are a
lifelong student, never tiring of learning new subjects. You collect
facts and tidbits of data, but you may not always have the big picture.
- To the Gemini person,
communication is of utmost
importance. You flourish on ideas, with a mind that is ever so quick
and curious. You are a person who enjoys talking and writing. All sorts
of communication ideas appeal to nature. You are aware of all that is
going on around you, and you want to understand and participate in it
all. You are hard to pin down, and even harder to beat in a debate.
Your abilities of combining quick comprehension , and the communication
of this comprehension to others, are the hallmarks of your sign. You
can talk yourself into and out of situations with ease. Often Mercury
people (Gemini's ruling planet is Mercury) take mischievous delight in
disconcerting slower minds with their fast paced mental antics. You
like to be around people, and you never do well working alone or on any
routine type job.
- Extremely friendly, you
enjoy companionship, and
really thrive on it. Just as you don't like to be without activity, you
don't like to be alone. You are likely to have a very wide circle of
friends with whom you enjoy many activities--movies, games,
conversation, and such. You are naturally outgoing and possess a
sparkling wit. You are apt to become quickly bored with conservative
types that can't make a decision or agree with your need to impose
change. Not being very introspective or reflective, often you don't
understand your motivations or the motivations of others. So in many
ways, relationships can be shallow and superficial. Your restless
mercurial nature requires constant excitement and change, or you'll
becomes very dispirited and morose.
sign is Cancer
- The Sun is in this
fourth sign of the zodiac from 22
June until 22 July each year. The symbol for Cancer is the Crab, with
its protective shell. People with this Sun sign are sometimes also
called "Moon Children," because the Moon is the ruler of the sign.
- In Cancer the Sun is
receptive and moody. You are a
very sensitive person who is easily influenced by your environment. You
are likely to be exceedingly protective of your feelings, as well as
the feelings of those to whom you are close. Emotions are strong in
your nature. You approach life with many feelings and a strong
nurturing tendency. Your moods are varied and changeable. They are
synchronized to the Moon, flowing in and out like the tide. You are
acutely aware of the atmosphere of feelings surrounding you. You're
skeptical and distrustful of people. It's not what they say, but simply
the way they say it and the way you interpret their meaning.
- You need to tell your
deepest thoughts. When those
around you are not receptive, you can become quite difficult to reach.
The "crabby" part of Cancer shows up once in awhile, as well. When
these moods are in control of your behavior, you can snap someone's
head off for no reason at all. People you live around have to learn
that you are not really angry with them. This is just the way Moon
children are sometimes. By nature you are quiet and somewhat reserved,
frequently retreating or putting up a protective barrier when you feel
in any way threatened.
- You are attuned to the
past. You tend to cling to
reminders and memorabilia of your family and of earlier times. Many
Cancers are attracted to collecting antiques. You may be one of those
people who collects just about everything. It's hard for you to part
with something when there may be a chance need some rainy day, no
matter how remote that chance may be. Cancers are the original
- You place much
importance on the home and family.
Your family or your "family of friends" is the center of your life.
They provide you your sense of security and belonging. Your role in
this environment is the source of your self-esteem and often overshadow
your sense of individuality. It's hard to break away from your early
upbringing and depart from the family traditions you have experienced.
Cancer is the sign of motherhood. In both sexes, it produces a
parenting instinct that is caring, protective, and indulging. Even
unmarried Cancers adopt friends, co-workers, and neighbors in an
extended family situation.
- Hardworking and
dedicated, you make an excellent
employee. You are loyal and respect authority. This makes you
supportive and protective of the boss and rarely questioning company
policy. You do find it very difficult to handle change and disruption.
If you are the boss, you like your employees to be dedicated as you
are. Unfortunately, sometimes you may surround yourself with "yes men"
who simply reinforce your decisions. You don't take chances or risk
- Money is very important
to you. Not for what it will
buy or for the freedom it provides, but for the sense of security it
provides. No matter what else is to be said of Cancer, security and
having the protective shell in place, is overriding.
sign is Leo
- Leo is the fifth sign of
the zodiac. The Sun is in
this sign from 23 July until 22 August each year. The symbol for Leo is
the Lion, and most Leo natives display many of regal traits of the king
- In Leo, the Sun is
magnetic, forceful, and dominate.
You possess a good nature that is very generous, allowing you to
attract many friends and followers. You can easily become a natural
leader because of your demeanor and because you are ambitious,
determined, and highly industrious. Self-assurance and dignity are very
strong in your nature. Your magnetic personality lets you sell yourself
or your ideas easily, and your persistence at doing so further enhances
your leadership potential. You are at your best when placed in charge
of a large scheme, for you are truly a fine organizer. You enjoy being
in a position of authority because you know you were born to rule. Your
sunny disposition allows you to be candid, outspoken, and very direct
in all matters, without upsetting people. You possess natural
leadership ability, and project such confidence and authority that you
inspire others to follow you.
- The typical Leo is a
natural showman, and delights in
having a full measure of recognition and admiration. Leo is the most
expressive sign in the zodiac. You love to show off. You probably see
your role in life as the starring role. Often the Leo personality
chooses some artistic form through which to express talent. There is
much drama associated with Leo, and the general approach to life is
full of emotional exuberance. If you are not careful, these traits can
result in too large an ego, which in turn can make you very susceptible
to flattery. Though you have a high opinion of yourself, you still need
the approbation and appreciation of your friends and followers. Your
ego needs constant reinforcement. This helps keep the spotlight focused
on your activities.
- Naturally emotionally
exuberant, you are not only a
good actor, but you make a truly outstanding teacher, as well. The Leo
association with the fifth house of the chart suggests a strong bond
with children. You may consider your children to be expressions of your
creativity. Typically, the Leo is very close to children, the loving
benefactor and protector.
- The lordly Leo sometimes
feels there should be an
automatic granting of power and authority. Because of this, you may be
one of those Leo types who doesn't feel the need to work your way to
the top. Though in many ways you show that you are ambitious, you also
can be lazy. You may only want to work at jobs that offer prestige,
glamour, power or a good time. You exert yourself only in those
situations were you can exhibit your star quality, and garner the
attention and respect of others.
- Your gift is surely the
ability that you naturally
possess to lead and to inspire. You are at home on the stage or at the
podium. Your poorest showing comes when you are unable to control your
ego, and you let an exaggerated sense of your own importance get the
upper hand. In spite of your self-assurance and dignity, you may have a
degree of concern about being laughed at or disgraced in some way.
Again, ego is at the base of your nature and being.
sign is Virgo
- Virgo is the sixth sign
of the zodiac, and the Sun is
in this sign from 23 August until 22 September each year. The symbol
for Virgo is the Virgin, denoting the puritanical demeanor usually
common to those of this sign.
- In Virgo the Sun is
orderly and thoughtful. With the
Sun in Virgo you are predisposed to be hardworking, conscientious, and
well-organized. Modest, discriminating and thorough, everything you do,
you do well. Practical and down to earth, you are a diligent worker
with a competent, discriminating intellect. You are highly analytical
and exacting, especially adapted to handling projects with painstaking
perfection. Thus, you are fond of good workmanship and the utmost in
quality. You are dependable because your approach is always one based
on common sense and a realistic and analytical assessment of the
- You give much attention
to detail, but you can carry
this to extremes, becoming fussy and critical, sometimes interfering.
Large-scale projects can overwhelm you because of your insistence on
perfection. Unless you can deliver such quality, you may become
frustrated and discouraged. There is always the tendency and danger
with Virgo that the big picture idea will be missed in search of minute
details. You expect yourself and everyone around you to be perfect,
often setting yourself up for disappointment. Your outlook is too
negative and picky sometimes.
- Modest and unassuming,
you are usually content to
live in the background. Your attitude, at times, can become puritanical
and prudish. You consider yourself an ordinary person, and you are
never given to any airs of pretentiousness or showing off. There may be
a tendency for you to see your role as one of service and "behind the
scenes" support activity.
- You have a serious
attitude toward refining your mind
and acquiring knowledge. With your highly varied interests, you can
gain a remarkable amount of data about different subjects. You
instinctively know that you must grasp all parts before you can fully
understand the whole. Systematizing and detail organization are your
strengths. You are idealistic, but always practical and reasonable.
You're not likely to make general statements based on too few facts.
- You may be somewhat
health conscious, for you have an
instinctive sense of balance in diet. You're very sensible in taking
care of your health, and for that matter, the health of others. Often,
the Virgo becomes exceptionally neat and orderly, even a bit neurotic
about cleanliness. You're likely to be susceptible to stress related
problems because you do tend to worry too much.
sign is Libra
- The Sun is in this
seventh sign of the zodiac, from
September 23 until October 22 each year. The symbol for Libra is the
Scales. In Libra the Sun is tolerant, affectionate, and well balanced.
You are a courteous and agreeable person who is considerate of other
people's feelings. You have a personal charisma attracting friends.
Functioning well when working in harmony with other people, you are an
excellent team player. You like being on the winning team.
- You prefer working in a
pleasant and very orderly
atmosphere, with people who don't put undue pressure on you. You like
to see your role as that of peacemaker. Peace and tranquility are so
important. The least sign of hostility or discord is very upsetting to
you. You refrain from speaking your mind if you fear your thoughts
would alienate or start an argument. Always ready to compromise or
mediate, you need to be careful not to appear wishy-washy or less than
- In many ways, you are
dependent upon the approval of
others. Libra is the sign of relationships. You think of yourself as
half a partnership rather than an individual. Because of this feeling
of dependence, you put your mate's needs and desires ahead of your own.
You may become confused as to what you want at any particular time,
versus what your partner wants. Your partner's goals and ambitions
become your goals and ambitions. You are the true helpmate. Because of
this attitude, Libra is very stable and dependent in a relationship,
even a bad one.
- As attached as you are
to your partner, you may not
really show it much. In your quest for balance and harmony, you rarely
have or express strong emotions of any kind. Yours is a very
dispassionate demeanor that is detached. You don't invest much passion
or feeling in your relationships, loving with your head instead of your
- When cast in a
supervisory role you may have some
difficulties. This is because you weigh each decision before choosing
your direction. You can experience problems if you are called on to
make frequent snap decisions for the group. You are an excellent
go-between, and not as good at being the leader or boss. Unfortunately,
such a balanced view of situations sometimes makes decisive action more
difficult. You have a hard time making everyday decisions of little or
no consequence. On the big issues, you may vacillate indefinitely.
- One of your main
personality traits is a love of
justice. You are insistent on fair play. In this too, you have a very
balanced and unbiased way of looking at everything in your world.
Accordingly, you are often called on to be mediator in family disputes
or in disagreements at work. Your impartial judgment can always see
both sides of a matter. You can be very cool and detached, keeping your
feelings well under control in pursuit of fairness.
- Your love of balance and
harmony allows you to
appreciate music and the arts. Libra is ruled by Venus, the planet
closely associated with artistic endeavors. If you don't have talent
yourself, you probably to do have an interest and excellent taste in
- Courteous and refined,
good manners are important to
you. You exhibit them and you expect them. You are especially repelled
by vulgarity and coarseness. Tactful, diplomatic, refined and socially
successful, you strive to say and do the right thing. It is always so
important for you to make the right impression.
sign is Scorpio
- The Sun resides in this
eighth sign of the zodiac
from 23 October until 22 November each year. The symbol for Scorpio is
- Like the other water
signs, this sign is very
sensitive and emotional. With Scorpio, unlike the water signs Cancer
and Pisces, the emotions remain under rigid control. They may not even
be apparent to those who are very close to you. When your emotions do
erupt, they do so very violently, often with a strong burst of sarcasm
- The strength of Scorpio
is in the methods employed to
meet every challenge. You approach everything with intensity and
passion. Nothing is ever halfway because you put everything you have in
your work; mind, heart, soul. You are one of those people who always
gives 100% and sometimes more. Many born under the sign Scorpio become
- You may have an
undesirable trait commonly found in
the Scorpio person, holding a grudge for a very long time. The
underside of Scorpio is often possessed with uncontrollable jealousies
and the strongest passions. When offended the reaction is surely
revenge. The higher side of Scorpio still dominates people and
situations, but with much for the common good. This sign produces very
few lukewarm people. You are either very bad or very good.
- In Scorpio, the Sun is
intense, skeptical and
secretive. There is an intensity and a secretiveness in your makeup
which results in an inscrutable persona most people cannot penetrate.
This trait makes the Scorpio personality hard to detect. You like to
remain incognito, and do so with your very secretive nature. You are a
master at hiding your emotions. You neither flinch nor blush. It's hard
for you to share your inner feelings with anyone.
- You can be very critical
and demanding, creating a
forceful and dominating demeanor. You are strong-willed and determined,
and you usually act with incisiveness. Your critical nature allows you
to make shrewd and unusually accurate judgments at a rapid rate. You
can penetrate the hidden agenda of those you meet. It is in your nature
to protect yourself by knowing what your opponents are thinking and
doing. You have uncanny intuition and accurate perceptions, making you
almost psychic in understanding and making emotional connections with
other people. Very few successfully earn your trust. Often, you
experience difficulties with the authority figures in your life.
- At home, you may be
something of a tyrant, wanting
everything done your way. You think you are always right and won't
tolerate dissent. There is a tendency for you to impose your will on
friends and family since you feel so passionately that your ideas are
in their best interest. No one takes relationships more serious than
you. Although you are highly attracted to, and attractive to, the
opposite sex, in many respects you function well as a 'lone wolf' type.
sign is Sagittarius
- The Sun is positioned in
this ninth sign of the
zodiac from November 23 until December 23 each year. The symbol for
Sagittarius is the Archer. In Sagittarius the Sun is idealistic and
optimistic. Sagittarius is the sign that espouses such high principles
as universal love and world peace. As this period of the year is
associated with the spirit of giving and good cheer, the Sagittarius
personality is recognized for its generosity and expansive demeanor.
- You are very gregarious,
enthusiastic, and open, in
all that you do. You have an ability to understand a broad perspective,
and to see everything from a total point of view. Your foresight and an
ability to visualize the big picture make matters work out well for you
most of the time. Always thinking in broad abstract terms, you usually
have trouble focusing on details that arise.
- In many ways you are
spontaneous, but with this comes
an inclination to be bluntly honest and frank, or at least,
straightforward and much to the point. You never intend to hurt anyone,
but the truth is all important to you, and you never hesitate to tell
it like it is. Tact and restraint can be issues of concern, but you
probably don't care. You are so independent. You can rarely be pushed
an inch in any direction unless you decide the direction your being
pushed is where you want to go.
- These blows are softened
only by your warm, jovial
and outgoing friendliness. Even when you stick your hoof in your mouth
you can recover and show up as a winner. Often "lady luck" just smiles
on you. Sagittarius has a happy-go-lucky, honest, cheerful, and ever
optimistic approach to life; but then can turn right around and be so
careless, restless and extravagant.
- You have a natural love
of the outdoors and may
develop strong enthusiasm for sports and outdoor adventure. Sagittarius
is the sign most often associated with sports, and you are inclined to
physical activity and active endeavors, particularly outdoors.
- Future-oriented, you
rarely allow problems or
setbacks to get you down for long. You put disappointment behind you
and start working toward your next adventure. Never satisfied with
moving along in slow lane, you want to set the pace on a grand scale.
Whatever you set out to do, must be the biggest and best. You want to
live life to its fullest. You can work well with anybody, accepting
them for what they are. You are the natural, open-hearted extrovert, an
easy person live and work with. Relying on your glibness and complete
self-confidence, you are a natural in the world of selling. Still in
the area of organization and perseverance you may need help from other
factors in the chart. If you are like most Sagittarius natives, you can
be down right irresponsible and unreliable at times. Your personality
is such, however, that people don't get upset about it. It's that
natural Sagittarius charm that carries you through the tough spots.
- Sagittarius is the sign
of higher education. You live
to expand your horizons in every possible way, wanting to see the world
and experience it. You want to meet interesting people and try
everything. Your curiosity is boundless and your desire for knowledge
sign is Capricorn
- The Sun is in this tenth
sign of the zodiac from 23
December until 20 January every year. The symbol of Capricorn is the
Goat. Capricorn is associated with the harshness of winter and its
- In Capricorn, the Sun is
strongly goal-directed and
persistent. Ambitious, serious and dedicated to duty, life is
difficult, but you are the type of person who will triumph and achieve
success. Your aptitude to persevere, no matter how difficult the road,
sets you apart from most of your peers. You are anxious to climb the
ladder of fortune, and you can usually reach your goals because of your
sense of the right way of doing everything. Your patience is never
- You are a very
thoughtful and serious person,
thinking everything through carefully before you set off in any
direction. You possess excellent reasoning skills, and you can be
counted on to select options that are both practical and that provide
an economic advantage. Your attitude is conservative; conservative with
time, money, and all other resources. Your philosophy is waste not,
want not. You are also likely to be conservative in your political and
social attitudes, although your age, upbringing, and education
perspectives may influence this somewhat.
- You are especially well
suited to business and
government because of your sense of organization and structure. You
combine a talent for management with an ability to carry out
instructions with care. You are the quintessential careerist, taking
job and duties very seriously. Therefore, you are never one to shirk
responsibility and you have very little use for those that do. That
which matters most to you is your public image. You show your best face
to the public. You enjoy being in a position of power and authority,
although you are not very much inclined to enjoy the limelight. You may
prefer instead to run your business from an isolated perspective. You
are loyal and dedicated, and you demand utter loyalty and dedication
from subordinates. Advancing up the ladder of success is all important.
You are unconcerned about, sometimes even ruthless toward, those
getting in your path as you move upward.
- You don't handle chaotic
situations very well. You
may need to develop the ability to lighten up a little and not take
life, and everything else so seriously. Although you are
self-disciplined, responsible, and practical, at times you can wallow
in self-pity. It's essential for you to remember that your most
important asset is self-esteem, and you should never devalue this.
Rigidity and fear of change may be your biggest stumbling block.
- Sober and reserved in
your dealings with others, it
takes you a good while to warm up enough to anyone to be considered a
close friend. Yet once you do, you are a very caring, reliable, and
most steadfast ally. Your private side is different from your public
side. In private you are shy and sensitive. The harshness of your
public image disappears. Emotionally demanding relationships are very
difficult. Love relationships may be more like business relationships,
and you are unsure of yourself in most intimate situations.
sign is Aquarius
- The Sun resides in this
eleventh sign of the zodiac
from 21 January until 19 February every year. The symbol of Aquarius is
the Water Bearer.
- In Aquarius the Sun is
eccentric and original. You're
apt to be a superb thinker, and your ideas are frequently advanced, no
matter what field of profession you select. Often, your unique
approaches to problem solving are viewed as too radical and unworkable,
but you prefer to think of them as advanced and progressive instead.
Unconventional and outspoken, you see your role as the rebel and the
person who rejects worn out traditions and old ways of operating. You
like to be with those ushering in the new order and fostering advanced
- Paradoxically, you're a
good team player, but one who
must have personal freedom. You don't like to feel fenced in. While
you're headstrong and inflexible in your ways, you can work very
effectively within a large group. You have complete respect for the
sound ideas put forward by others. You are aloof and detached, and your
concerns are directed toward society rather than to the problems of any
one person. You are somewhat impersonal most of the time. You're more
emotionally involved with your work than you are with people. You can
be highly critical and demanding in a position of authority.
Nonetheless, you are a strong leader and organizer. You have a deep
understanding of human nature, but often you lack sensitivity to the
emotional content of many situations.
- You thrive on change and
managing the unexpected.
Always ahead of your time, you are viewed by everyone as being
different and unusual, labels you don't mind accepting. You pride
yourself on your ability to find a better way of doing the job.
Sometimes you lack follow through, and you always dislike routine. You
like to take chances and keep everything stirred up. Occasionally, you
enjoy antagonizing people in positions of authority, and stimulating a
good argument now and then. You don't mind that you are seen as a bit
unusual, in fact, you may encourage this image.
- Equality, freedom and
fairness are all important
issues for you. You strongly subscribe to the doctrine that all people
are created equal and should have the same rights and opportunities. In
this regard, you are likely to be classified as a progressive and often
associated with humanitarian issues and causes. Though you are very
involved with such matters, your approach is always somewhat in the
abstract, with ideological concepts, the sort that don't usually stem
from true emotions. Your approach is often very impersonal and
- Friendly and sociable,
you may have a wide circle of
acquaintances. Friends are very important to you. Intellectually
oriented, you are happiest with friends that share common ideas and
interests. Strangely, you find it more difficult to cultivate a truly
satisfying intimate relationship. This aloofness exists because
feelings are rarely expressed outwardly, and you usually seem
distant. You resist anything or anyone threatening your independence.
sign is Pisces
- The Sun is in this last
sign of the zodiac from 20
February until 20 March each year. The symbol for Pisces is the Fish.
- In Pisces, the Sun is
sensitive and idealistic. You
are "tuned in" to your environment, and aware of everything happening
in your world, and to everyone around you. Pisces is the dream sign of
the zodiac. You may be one of the true dreamers of the world, often
getting caught up in impractical plans and ideas. You absorb the ideas
and the mental outlook of those around you, for better or for worse.
The decisions that you make may be workable, if sometimes emotional and
erratic. Often these decisions are made on hunches and feelings with
little or no foundation in fact. Creative, spiritual and often a bit
mystical, you can be impractical and illogical.
- You're a moody and
introspective person, and it's
hard for others to understand you. It may be hard for you to understand
yourself sometimes. Your temperament varies from being optimistic to
being acutely pessimistic.
- Although you may be very
shy and unassuming, you care
deeply about your stature and succeeding in your endeavors. You may
feel vulnerable and anxious when you are unsure of your status and
circumstances. You have a deeply hidden inner pride and when this is
attacked in any way, you react emotionally.
- Compassionate, tolerant,
kind, and loving, you are
easily influenced by others because you don't want to hurt anyone.
Always charming and likable, you are good to those in distress. You are
as fond of animals as you are people. You are sympathetic to the
world's unfortunate, including every stray animal and helpless soul you
meet. You are more concerned with others' well-being than your own, and
you want to save people from themselves. You are easily taken in by a
hard-luck story and often leave yourself open to be used. You are
always there with a shoulder to cry on for your friends in need.
Frequently people take advantage of this compassionate nature.
- If you are a typical
Pisces, you're likely to suffer
from an inferiority complex. You probably lack an adequate sense of
self-confidence, as you are so very sensitive, shy and introspective.
You never feel that you do enough, so you often overwork, putting
stress on your physical body. In your quiet way, you accomplish much.
Having a natural tendency to become a workaholic, you must have a
generous amount of escape time, preferably with total solitude.
- Pisces, more than any
other sign, draws strength or
weakness from the rest of the horoscope. The nature of Pisces is very
adaptable and pliable. You may have to fight for a sense of stability
and to resist the impulses of the moment.
in the Twelve Signs
Astrology Signs - Moon
- The Moon's position in
your chart is almost as
important as the Sun, but the influence is different. The moon is your
emotional life. It relates to immediate emotional responses. It's those
reactions instilled by conditioning; the memory and learned habit
patterns. The influence of the Moon is more subtle, for it relates to
personality beneath the surface; your feelings and your subconscious
self. It shows how you react to those around you based on the sum of
your conditioned viewpoint and unguarded self-projection. Often, the
Moon's place in the chart shows a considerably different side of the
nature, a side fostered by emotions, upbringing, and habit patterns
that have developed over time.
- An Aries Moon produces
subconscious reactions in your
nature that are highly assertive. You respond to life as though it was
an adventure. This Moon produces one who is open to new ideas and one
who is highly self-motivated. You have a strong underlying drive for
success that is associated with your emotional nature. You tend to feel
with your ego, as your feelings tend to compete with your ego much of
the time. Your senses are quick. So much so, that you may seem pushy at
times. Your temperament can be uneven, liable to flare ups at the
slightest provocation. You make quick decisions, trusting your sense
perceptions, and acting immediately without reflection. You jump into
action from your quick feelings instead of from reason. You have an
active mind, and what you are thinking is often quickly verbalized.
When this emotional side of your nature is in charge, you tend to say
and do things with little forethought and planning.
With Moon in Aries you're
enthusiastic and naļve, each
day becomes a new adventure. You express a joy of living and people are
attracted to you for it. Even so, you have a bit of the rogue and
rascal in you.
You can be emotionally
detached from the people around
you, somewhat reluctant to ask for help, even when you need it. The
nature that has developed and the habits learned make you very
independent. You feel with your ego. You don't much care for advice,
and rarely follow the advice you get. There is much in your instinctive
nature that is original and restless. Sometimes you get too assertive,
and those that know you well realize you have a quick temper. You
aren't one who always plays by the rules, as you are something of a
renegade. To a degree, Moon in Aries hides a sense of insecurity behind
an independent and assertive exterior.
Extremely competitive, you
love a challenge from a
worthy opponent. You tend to see just about everything as a challenge
and everyone as an opponent. Its hard for you to give in on anything
and compromise is generally an option you don't exercise. Intensely
individualistic, it's hard to see someone else's point of view. Oddly
enough, when it comes to a romantic partner, you'll insist on someone
who is not shy about standing up to you.
- A Taurus Moon emphasizes
the material side of life,
and emotions are centered on the comforts and possessions in life. You
tend to be a collector and an accumulator of the things that, in your
view, make up the "good life." With the Moon in Taurus, you want the
best that life has to offer, and you find it difficult to settle for
less. The emotions are earthy and practical, highly attracted to
material possessions and the satisfactions that come from material
comforts. Your fondness for wealth and inborn understanding of the
material world might result in a natural business sense and a gift for
This is a stable position
for the Moon; reactions and
emotional responses are slow, but full. Easygoing, even-tempered, and
good-natured, you are a great companion and a devoted friend. You don't
anger easy; you believe in loving, not fighting. Little annoyances
don't really bother you very much. There is a deep emotional need to
gratify physical appetites. You can be very possessive, and sometimes
quite self-indulgent. Stable and steady, loyal and lasting, you are a
determined, if sometimes stubborn person.
In a romantic sense, no
lover of yours will ever want
for affection. On the other hand, this person may feel a little
smothered by your possessiveness. Yours is a strong sense of ownership,
and this may extend to your partner in a romance. It is important to
remember that you can't buy love and you don't own your lover. Your
needs and desires are simple, down-to-earth and of a practical,
physical nature. Sensual and strongly sexual, your enjoyment of sex is
direct and unabashed. You very much like physical contact; hugs and
back rubs. With friends and lovers you can be quite demonstrative.
Sense impressions are very
strong, the sense of touch
and taste is highly developed, and you probably have a pleasant
speaking and singing voice. At least you are fond of music, art,
dancing and all things that make life more pleasurable. You innate good
taste probably extends to decorating the home and having a great sense
for interior design.
You have deep powers of
concentration and generally a
conservative outlook. Your ideas are very conventional. You only
welcome those ideas which are compatible with your stable temperament.
Conservative and conventional, you have to avoid becoming narrow-minded
and fixed in your opinions. You don't like contradiction, simply
because you don't like to argue. You will stick to your ideals through
thick and thin, being blindly faithful, sentimental, affectionate and
- A Gemini Moon gives
quick responses and the ability
to learn rapidly. You're quite articulate and witty, with a tendency to
feel with your mind. Using emotions of the bantam, lightweight variety;
you're adaptable, and quite attracted to mental stimulation. The social
sign of Gemini yields a happy and easy-going emotional personality.
A trademark of Gemini is
observation, as impressions
seem to form quickly. With the Moon in Gemini, you are able to
verbalize all sorts of observations with amazing speed. You are quite
mentally alert, versatile and perceptive, chiefly interested in the
intimate contact of the moment.
Friendly, gregarious and
sociable, you're likely to have
a lot of friends, lovers and acquaintances. You truly like people, and
they like you. Communication with people is all important to you. All
types of communication interest you, and you are never at a loss for
words. You have a natural ability to communicate; both orally and in
Your emotional personality
requires variety and novelty
rather than durability and depth of feeling. In fact, you may be
incapable of long-sustained feelings, or of undivided interests. Moods
are changeable; you can be up one minute and down the next, and because
of this, you tend to be somewhat nervous much of the time. Sometimes
can appear superficial because you seemingly lack real perseverance,
constantly jumping from one project to another. Actually, you are torn
apart by changing feelings, and you can spread yourself too thin and
scatter your forces. Your restless nature is always searching for
You have the instinct to
always be adaptable and
flexible, and the capacity to be a little shrewd when you want to be.
This attribute becomes pronounced because your senses serve the
intellect rather than the emotions. The result is an ability for
dispassionate observation and reasoning. A life-long student, you want
to learn a little about everything.
Moon in Gemini yields a
highly developed sense of humor
which makes you fun to be around. Shrewd by natural instinct, you know
how to play up to others and get what you want, including your romantic
partners. Emotionally shallow, you don't tend to form strong
attachments or get deeply involved romantically. Gemini fails to rank
as one of the more domestic Moon positions. You seem to have a
psychological need to do a lot of different things before you settle
down to have and raise a family. Having your own home is not
necessarily one of you primary goals. You want a life that won't tie
you down and restrict your mobility. Freedom is important to you, and
you don't want to be restricted by emotional demands.
- A Cancer Moon gives a
strong drive for recognition
and acceptance. You are highly sensitive and creative, if somewhat
given to brooding and moodiness.
You rarely go out of your
way to garner new information,
but once something sinks into your mind, it is indelibly impressed upon
it. Everything that you experience is held in feeling memory. You let
your heart rule your head, and you can have trouble making rational,
detached decisions. Yet your intuition is quite keen, and you would be
smart to rely on it. You have an almost psychic ability to "tune in" to
what other people are thinking and feeling. By nature, you're
suspicious and distrusting, although, surprisingly, you tend to almost
naively trust your own feelings and gut hunches.
The Cancer influence is
often far too sensitive
surroundings. This over-sensitive nature can be a positive or a
negative; on the positive side, you are no doubt very intuitive; on the
negative side, you are moody and subject to emotional upsets. This
thin-skinned attitude toward outside influences causes you to pick up
negative vibrations from others. You are frequently moody and prone to
having problems in personal relationships. Often, Cancer Moon people
wear their heart on their sleeve, but like so many of them, you may
have a habit of hiding your true feelings and strong emotions under a
rather hard shell.
You have an especially
strong love of home and family,
and you staunchly protect your personal security. In Cancer, the
emotions reflected by the Moon are sensitive to matters that affect
people as a whole, the "universal parent." Towards loved ones, you are
gentle, peaceful, and romantic. You have a nurturing attitude toward
your family and to those you consider under your very broad protective
"wing." Security is of primary importance to you, but often you feel
your life lacks the comfort of inherent stability. Things that offer a
sense of protection become very important: money, material belongings,
family, home, country, and traditions, may all be included in this.
Change, risk-taking, relocating, and opinions differing from your own
are things that pose a challenge to your security, and are usually
rejected accordingly. You have a great deal of apprehension regarding
matters outside of your own personal control.
- A Leo Moon produces an
air of confidence and a desire
to lead. Self-confident, cheerful and optimistic, your emotional
outlook on life is positive and upbeat. In Leo, the emotions are
carefree, gay, and often pleasure-seeking.
self-reliant, you get deeply and
emotionally involved with all that you do. This Moon definitely accents
personality, and causes a tendency toward display. It is likely that an
attitude has been instilled in you that you can do anything you want,
and that your creative ability has no actual bounds. You may have been
spoiled somewhat. There is a need to be admired and applauded, and you
seek appreciation constantly. You have an innate sense of the dramatic
and always do things with a flair. Something of a showman, entertaining
may come naturally for you. You seem to thrive on constant attention
and you are something of a flirt, expecting the object of your
flirtations to be responsive, as well.
The Moon has a natural
association with the fourth house
of the horoscope, or the home. Moon in Leo gives a natural creative
flair to make the home a show place. You may have a gift for interior
design and be good with color and decorating. You think of your home as
your castle, and you may have a tendency to overextend yourself
financially to impress others with your fine life-style.
You are uplifted socially
and you command respect. Your
reactions are straight-forward and usually dignified, enabling you to
garner esteem and responsibility. You have a deep-seated need for this
respect and nothing hurts you more than not feeling as though you are
appreciated. One thing you can't handle very well is someone stepping
on your pride.
There is a natural love of
luxury and a desire for
social pomp and prominence as Moon in Leo lends a certain nobility to
the persona. There may be an inborn tendency to be somewhat
pretentious. Thus, sometimes you can be a little self-centered and even
pompous, lacking objectivity and having a blind spot in your emotional
perspective. It's very hard for you to ever back down or to accept any
sort of a compromise.
The Moon in Leo tends to
produce a loving and very
devoted parent, boss, or ruler, but it is important that leadership
potential not be spoiled by the tendency towards being bossy,
arrogance, and displaying an overbearing ego. Emotions are powerful
with Moon in Leo, and the drive for prominence and power is very
strong, as well. Unless the Moon is harshly aspected, you should be
like the benevolent monarch, having a great sense of charity and being
a rather generous person. You are one who projects concern with an
optimistic approach to life.
- A Virgo Moon generates a
definite reserve in
expression, and a personality that is often critical and analytical.
You are not unemotional, but it is difficult for you to delineate what
you feel. Consequently, you can sometimes come across as a little cold,
detached, or prudish. You can seem stuffy and proud, when in fact, you
are rather easily hurt.
Your desire to be
considered superior intellectually may
be a cover for a deep-seated inferiority complex. Often, this position
denotes a shyness and a decided lack of self-confidence. You respond
well to encouragement and appreciation, and you have a need for these
to stay your emotionally overeager nature. Overly critical of yourself,
you assume that people will judge you harshly and find you lacking. You
may feel that people don't like you, for this is a placement that shows
much lack of self-esteem. Thus, you tend to pretty much keep your
feelings under wraps.
You have a desire to serve
others, but not enough
understanding of the other person's feelings. Consequently, you follow
your intellect rather than your intuitions in most situations. You have
trouble understanding other people's motivations and intentions. Your
reactions are often rather cool, deliberate, detailed and analytical.
You don't like emotional expressions, because you really don't
understand them. Analyzing emotions may occupy a good bit of your time.
This is not a very sexual
position for the Moon for
there is an introverted aspect to this placement. Even when your
feelings are engaged, your shyness makes it hard for you to be
demonstrative with your affections. Instead you express caring by doing
things for the people you love, trying to make yourself indispensable
to your loved ones so they won't be able to get along without you.
Whether in a relationship or not, you enjoy doing things for people and
you are at your best when you are able to take care of someone who is
needy. You never shy away from such responsibility.
You do understand reality
and practicality, and you
react in a very common sense manner, never viewing the world through
"rose colored glasses". Mental qualities are emphasized by this
position, but the qualities in Virgo are practical and useful. You want
what you want, when and how you want it. You don't value learning for
learning sake, but for the use and application that can be made of the
learning. Temperamental at times, you tend to get picky and
argumentative. You are shrewd, with good business sense and meticulous
attention to detail. You analyze and criticize all sense impression
with care; sometimes you can be quite fussy about minor details.
- A Libra Moon gives a
sense of understanding,
tolerance, and gentleness. You are ambitious, but at the same time, so
very dependent on others. The symbol of Libra is the scales, signifying
the innate symmetry the influence provides. This is the position of the
diplomat, broad-minded and open, social, and friendly.
The adaptability of this
Moon sign is considerable; you
don't like disputes and disorder, and you do what you can to maintain a
well-oiled social and business life. Balance, harmony and domestic
tranquility are very important to you. Even-tempered, well-mannered and
congenial, you display all those attributes that assures many friends
and an active social life. You are truly a thoughtful and good-natured
person who goes out of the way to be nice to people. You are very fond
of people and don't enjoy being alone for very long. You have a need to
have everyone like you, and your emotional well-being depends on the
approval others. Thus, you are over-anxious to please. This is the sign
of the consummate peacemaker and diplomat.
Your nature is affectionate
and easily swayed, often
exhibiting a tendency towards indolence. Sometimes you tend to have too
much reliance on others and you may delay making important decisions.
At many times, you seem to be facing life's problems and decisions on
more or less a trial and error basis. Too willing to compromise, you
frequently allow others to take advantage of you. You freely sacrifice
your own wishes for someone else's. It is very hard for you to be
assertive and stand up for yourself. Since you don't like conflict
situations, you may refrain from expressing the dissatisfactions you
have in your relationships, often waiting until it is too late to
rectify the situation.
Relationships are important
to your and you don't like
being alone. A stable partner, you tend to settle with one special
person rather than playing the field. Devoted and faithful, you spend a
great deal of your time catering to the needs and desires of your mate.
Stability rather than passion or excitement is your goal in a partner.
It is usually thought that Libra love affairs are of the head rather
than the heart. Concern with what others think and doing what is
correct makes you rather conventional and conservative in all your
romantic and social activities.
You are refined and you
have a definite love of the
refined; art, music, etc. You may have some natural artistic or musical
talent. At the very least you appreciate all the finer things in life
and you are apt to be a patron of the arts if your means permit.
You are a good planner, but
often it is hard for you to
get your plans into action and to see them through to completion. The
Libra mind is more contemplative, building great ideas, but sometimes
failing carry them out. Decisiveness is not usually a strong quality
with Moon in Libra; the mind may be building great ideas, but you are
not always ready to act on them. Decision-making can be tough, because
you can usually see both sides of every issue. For you, judgment is
more important than execution.
- A Scorpio Moon produces
emotional responses that are
intense, secretive, and passionate. You must learn to handle your
strong, deep feelings, as you are extremely emotional and highly
A Scorpio Moon position
gives an absolutely phenomenal
memory. In ways, this is very good. Yet in other ways, it designates a
person who may carry a number of psyche scars from remembering, too
vividly, past events that perhaps should be forgotten. This is a
difficult position for the Moon as the emotions become very powerful.
You are impatient, moody and sometimes given to brooding.
The nature of this sign is
not always very apparent, as
you are very good at hiding your true feelings. In fact, you may be
almost pathological in your secretiveness, never revealing yourself
entirely. Very few people ever know very much about what goes on inside
Jealous, proud, and
possessive, the Moon in Scorpio
frequently has difficulty in romantic relationships despite the fact
that this is perhaps the most sensuous of the signs. You attempt to
dominate and totally control. When you become involved with someone,
you throw yourself completely into the relationship. If a romantic
relationship ends, you are devastated as though you had lost a piece of
You judge people too
quickly, and you rarely give them a
second chance once those negative vibrations have been received. You
react to situations in an abrupt, impulsive and intense manner. You can
be vindictive and determined when it come to getting even with someone
who has wronged you. Easily hurt or offended, you are apt to hold a
grudge and take revenge.
With an executive flair,
you are a very determined
person, achieving whatever goal is set. You're always searching for new
challenges. You react to sense impressions with great accuracy, and can
usually see through situations, and through people, with an extremely
acute judgment. You insist on thinking for yourself, and you're not one
to ever be pushed around. An extremist in much that you do, you never
pursue anything halfheartedly. Even when a situation turns out to be
detrimental to your well-being, you may still refuse to give it up.
Emotional stubbornness marks your nature and natural reactions.
- A Sagittarius Moon is
restless and lacking in
continuity. Unsettled in both mind and body, you need activity and a
good deal of exercise. You want to always feel free to roam and wander,
both physically and mentally.
In Sagittarius, the
emotions are jubilant, enthusiastic
and highly optimistic. You are socially naive and blissfully unaware of
real human differences. You meet people on your own terms, merging and
melting into relationships with them. You are open and friendly as a
puppy. Your good-natured and fun-loving manner generally produces many
friends and acquaintances. Yet few of your friends are really intimate.
Rarely will you feel the
need for group movements or
organizations to provide you with a sense of who you are. You know who
you are and where you're going. Although you may change your mental
directions and modify your goals a number of times, you are quite
comfortable with yourself, and where you're headed. Optimistic and
idealistic, you can see the silver lining inside every cloud, and
believe things will turn out for the best. Usually they do. You bounce
back easily from setbacks and immediately start again. Unfortunately,
you often fail to learn from your mistakes.
Your sense perceptions are
accurate, but you often speak
before you think. You seem to be able to form a clear picture of the
world around you. Decisive in manner, you are outspoken, buoyant, and
ever interested in both learning and spreading knowledge. Thus, you're
a natural teacher or preacher.
As a child, your parents
were probably very lenient with
you, and encouraged your aptitude for adventure, both physically and
mentally. Quite likely, you will encourage your children in much the
same way, becoming more of a friend than an authority figure. When it
comes to discipline, however, you may be a little lax. Sometimes the
Sagittarius influence views children as inhibitors of freedom.
Your love relationships
probably are romantic
friendships rather than deep emotional commitments. You can be
affectionate and enthusiastic, but your emotions are shallow, and you
probably are happiest with a partner who will play, socialize and go
places with you, without making heavy demands. Being free and
unfettered is one of your deepest needs. Intimacy poses a certain
threat to this need. As soon as you begin to care for someone, you
start feeling emotionally trapped, usually choosing to regain your
freedom by making an exit.
You need physical outlets
for your restlessness and
energy. Running, skiing, dancing and bike-riding in particular might
appeal to you. Exercise can also help you keep your weight down, since
you have a tendency to overindulge in food and/or drink sometimes.
You're prone to make many
changes in your life; changes
of residence, changes in careers, or just changes of ideals and goals.
This is because you are able to maintain a great deal of control over
your life, skillfully combining business and pleasure. Adventure and
travel are strong urges in your makeup and you are likely to travel a
great deal. You may have some reluctance to buy a home and begin
collecting physical possessions because you believe these would merely
tend to tie you down.
- A Capricorn Moon is
determined, steadfast and
reliable. This sign more than any other, shows the effects of very
strong and perhaps rigid parental influence. You want to be recognized
as an important and powerful person chiefly because you were raised to
think that way. Many of your reactions are geared toward your effort to
achieve status and position. Your nature is stubbornly persistent,
serious in tone, and stable. You are a very hard worker who will
persist almost forever to reach a goal.
Expressing your emotions is
difficult for you, and
people around you may view you as a little cold, rigid and unfeeling.
This appearance will persist because it is so hard for you to relax and
let go. In most ways you are reserved, especially in communicating, and
the way you interact with people. You are self-conscious and
emotionally conservative. So serious and prudent, you tend too often to
look on the dark side of matters, and express a shyness and doubt about
your own worth. You are supersensitive to real, or fancied, slights.
There is a subconscious tendency to become dispirited and gloomy. You
can be emotionally stable and down-to-earth when things are going okay,
but when they aren't, you can be down right depressing.
In relationships with
others, you are loyal, devoted and
highly dependable--but demonstrative you are not. You show you care by
being available, by coming home on time, by providing for financial
needs--rarely do you express deep emotions or seem to show your love in
the more conventional ways. With your own children, you're likely to be
strict and demanding. You want them to be self-sufficient and
responsible. Though you may love deeply, even with closest family
members, it is hard to express those most intimate feelings of
A practical, steady
approach to problem solving makes
you an excellent manager with superb executive abilities. Security and
stability are very important to you--making money, establishing
yourself as a community leader, or accepting the responsibility that
will secure your status and attest to your worth as an individual. Your
attitude toward life in general is that of the traditionalist because
you were raised to believe in solid values and a very conservative
approach to living.
This placement of the Moon
is difficult, but its saving
grace is the fact that it easily picks up the best of a chart featuring
good aspects, while it gives a sense of stability to those charts in
which the aspects are particularly challenging.
- An Aquarius Moon
produces reactions which are
progressive, but often erratic. Your friends may consider you unusual
and unpredictable. Your imagination is fertile, and it produces a lot
of creative energy.
You sometimes seem
eccentric and unconventional in your
responses to everyday problems. You're very broad-minded and
imaginative, but you're also likely to be somewhat impractical and
perhaps lacking in common sense, or so it may seem. Actually, you
consider all that you do as being on a utilitarian level, even if many
of your ideas are a bit idealistic and outside the mainstream. You have
a universal quality that places you ahead of your time. An interesting
conversationalist, you are a fascinating person, and a good friend.
It may be that you enjoy a
good confrontation now and
then and really don't want things to go too smoothly. A little on the
high-stung side, you don't like things to get to routine and boring.
The quickest way to end a relationship for you is to have the other
person begin to take you for granted and cease to challenge you in a
variety of ways. Stubborn, brusque and willful, you have difficulties
in your relationships due to the insensitive attitude you so often
reflect towards your partner's feelings. Women born with Moon in
Aquarius are very demanding of a relationship that is entirely "equal".
Even during the best of times, you may demand the freedom to come and
go as you please. Possessiveness makes you feel trapped. Casual
companions and relationships are much more comfortable for you because
they do not impose so many demands.
Your Aquarius Moon may make
you seem to be too
impersonal or detached for many with whom you come in contact. You are
good at observing and analyzing others, but you may lack a true
understanding of the needs and feelings that other people have. You are
generally friendly to all, but in a rather impersonal, cool, and aloof
way. This position overemphasizes friendliness and humanitarianism, but
often misses the mark in one to one emotional relationships. You may
seem cold because you have difficulty understanding the real emotions
of another person.
Moon in Aquarius is apt to
have given you a special
concern for humankind. Often, the placement denotes someone who has
very fixed and determined humanitarian instincts, and who participates
in activities directed toward the poor or homeless. You relate well to
humanity, if not always to individuals.
The physical home is not
especially important to you,
and you may change your residence often or have rather unconventional
living arrangements. Some may describe your lifestyle as "bohemian,"
modern or offbeat.
- A Pisces Moon indicates
that you are especially
sensitive, perceptive and perhaps even dreamy. You are very responsive
to the depths of human experience, having an understanding and
affection for nearly all people.
With the Moon in Pisces,
you can be overly optimistic,
sometimes looking at the world through "rose colored glasses."
Emotionally naive, you continually overlook other people's shortcomings
and deficiencies. You are essentially so romantic that you may rarely
see life as it really is. You are tremendously unselfish, trusting and
open-handed. Sometimes you can be a little too generous, especially
with your boundless sympathy. This is a very passive position, and if
you are not careful, others may attempt to take advantage of you. When
they do, you are always so easily hurt; and you may spend much to much
time feeling sorry for yourself.
You are neither analytical
nor critical, but maybe a
little psychic. Most astrologers agree that this is the most psychic
Moon of all. Highly sensitive, you connect with others on an
unconscious, emotional level. You actually feel what they feel. Thus,
you have a most sympathetic and compassionate nature, and these fine
instincts can be invaluable to you in the everyday world. In many
situations, you can be too giving and overly-idealistic. You may have
difficulty seeing your people in a clear way, preferring instead to
live within a fantasy that you have created.
You expect much of
yourself, even perfection, and
sometimes you may get down on yourself because of this.
in the Twelve Signs
Astrology signs - Mercury
Mercury's sign describes
your thought processes and
projection. It's closely associated with its natural home, the third
house of learning and communication. Mercury relates to your general

adaptable to rapidly changing
situations, because you have such a tendency to study issues so
carefully before committing yourself. You must concentrate ever to
attain a sense of expediency or decisiveness. Yet you can be counted on

truths and perhaps the hidden secrets of life itself.

impulsive, very direct, and sometimes argumentative. Yet you are social
and very communicative with anyone who will listen. You may lack

get up on your "soapbox."

imagination may make you a natural storyteller. You're good at
improving on the truth.
Your senses are keen, but
it can be hard for you to
concentrate on any single subject for long periods of time. You can
miss details because your focus is on the broad view.

interest you. You're particularly
attracted to subjects that have significance beyond the everyday. You
may enjoy philosophy, psychology, foreign cultures, or religion.

thinking. You may become a lifelong student, because you never tire of
learning and sharing knowledge. Forgetful and impractical, you mind may
be like that of the preoccupied absent-minded professor.

produces a mind that is clear,
sometimes rigid and narrow, and always cautious and resourceful. Your
thinking is methodical and careful. You know how to take things a step
at a time, each fact building on the thought that went before. Your
speech is organized and follows a logical and orderly pattern
suggesting that you carefully examine and edit your words before they
come out. You hardly ever say something that you are sorry for later.

learner, but you are one who never
forgets what has been absorbed. You have an excellent memory and
attention to the business at hand; a down-to-earth and practical
thinker. Insecure about your mental abilities, you work hard to develop
yourself with education and experience opportunities. You may be a bit
defensive about your lack of education, that is the case. A special
need to prove yourself, one way or another, is often the case with
Mercury in Capricorn.
You have such very good
powers of concentration,
dignity, and an earnestness that can make you seem too serious. You can
have a tendency toward moodiness and sulking, and you may have to work
at showing any spirit of optimism. This placement of Mercury,
especially if your Sun is also in Capricorn, produces one who is very
quiet. Even if your Sun is in the more communicative Sagittarius or
Aquarius, a Capricorn Mercury is not very talkative and sociable. You
are especially self-conscience about speaking to strangers.
You have a very
down-to-earth approach to thinking and
communicating. Planning and organizing are you special strengths, and
they carry you far in business and professional life. You do
particularly well on long, drawn out projects that require perseverance
and determination. Once you put your mind to a task, it will surely be
completed and done well.
Cautious and skeptical, you
may be conservative to a
fault. Your love of tradition, and a natural pessimism, makes you slow
to change patterns and premises that have worked in the past. Ideas
that shake long-held beliefs are not very often accepted.
- In Aquarius, Mercury
produces a mind that is
original, detached, and abstract. Ideas come to you as bursts of
insights. Your mind is hyper-active and going constantly. Thoughts are
rarely organized, rather arriving in flashes and fragments which are
often the seeds of invention and progress. The thought pattern is
scientific and dispassionate.
Your ideas may sometimes be
considered very progressive
and some may be well ahead of their time. Your unique approach will
prompt some to label you as being a little crazy or at least eccentric.
You like to do things that are unusual or avant garde just to shake up
the establishment and create controversy. You have no respect for
tradition and little concern for the lessons of the past. You are a
pure progressive. You love to rebel against the system in supporting
causes and ideas that are controversial and revolutionary.
You are very intuitive, and
accordingly, an excellent
judge of character. Being very fair-minded, you judge people by what
they seem to know or what they do, rather than who they are or what
position they occupy. You believe strongly in equality and fair play. A
humanitarian, you support ideas and programs that assist those less
fortunate than yourself, and you support the concepts of total social
You're witty and open to a
wide range of ideas, but at
times, you become mentally fixed in your opinions and very stubborn.
You are talkative and social, but you often come off as rather aloof
and cerebral. It may be hard for you to find common ground in many
social circles. Nonetheless, you are very verbal and enjoy expressing
you views to anyone who will listen. Writing and speaking both come
easily for you.
- In Pisces, Mercury
produces a mind that is receptive
and ruled by feelings. Your thinking is colored by psychic tendencies,
and you usually follow your instincts rather than any sense of logic or
reason. You are a dreamer who can get lost in your fantasies. You don't
pay much attention to the mundane detail of the everyday world that you
live in. Your thought patterns and ideas are opaque and vague.
Your love of music and
other art forms may be very
strong. You have a fantastic imagination and you are artistically
oriented. You see shapes and hear sounds that others don't, for you are
tuned in a most sensitive way to sound and color. Art or composition
may be easier ways for you to communicate than oral expression.
Creative imagination is at its strongest in this sign.
You are frequently too
sensitive and too easily hurt,
becoming moody and negative when you are. This keen sensitivity may put
you in touch with matter in the unseen realm. You are more psychic than
most people, and you are certainly very intuitive and perceptive.
Meditation, prayer and spiritual thought comes naturally for you.
There is a certain naļvete
in your nature. You are
trusting and gentle, seeing the good in everyone. As a result, you are
easily fooled and misled. You can be taken in by a good hard-luck
story, and convinced by any phony scheme that comes along. You are
vulnerable in many of your business and personal affairs.

that do occur are often sudden,
and in some way unusual; they may end just as suddenly as they began. A
permanent partner will have to be a friend first and a lover second.
You love your freedom so much that you're ready to run at the slightest
provocation. This elusiveness and a noncommittal attitude results in
late marriages for most with Venus in Aquarius. Any expression of
possessiveness by your partner is not acceptable, as you demand near
absolute freedom. You value your individuality very highly, and find it
hard to allow a mate tell you what to do or how to live. Yet by the
same token, you are willing to respect the independence and ideals of
your partner. In the end then, you can therefore succeed very nicely in
an open and understanding relationship.
- If Venus is in Pisces in
your chart it may show a
very compassionate and tender-hearted nature. You have a strong need
for love and understanding, and without this you can feel lost. Thus,
you may much of your time falling into and out of love. No one can
experience the extreme highs and low lows faced in the love life of the
Venus in Pisces.
- This sensitivity marks
you as a most understanding
person, but one who is highly dependent and in need of a caring
partner. This vulnerability is a very attractive and attracting trait.
With your warmth and graciousness, you have little trouble establishing
close relationships. You are inclined to become somewhat dependent in a
- If this is not the case,
then you may attract a
partner who becomes dependent on you. This sign, more than any other,
is called on to make sacrifices for the sake of loved ones. You are
more likely than most to be attracted to people who take advantage of
you. Your heart rules your head, and there is little that can be done
about this. You have a talent for collecting those who are downtrodden,
unfortunate, or in some sort of need. Using good judgment in matters of
the heart will have to be a learned trait, as it doesn't come
- Extreme sensitivity can
leave you open to hurt. There
is a tendency to suffer in silence and become very reticent. When
affairs don't go well for you in a relationship, you act and feel like
a martyr, and you may sometimes push this attitude a little too far.
You have a fear of rejection that can make it hard to express feeling
that are so deep in this placement. Strong feelings sometimes cloud
reality. Your intuition is highly developed, and you relate deeply to
art, poetry, nature and music. You may have special talents or just a
wonderful sense of appreciation.
in the Twelve Signs
Astrology signs - Mars
- The sign in which Mars
resides in the birth chart
shows the expression of energies. Mars suggests the projection of self.
Your energies must be evaluated in four different ways, and the sign
that Mars occupies at birth largely signifies the type and degree of
energy in all four. These four are first, Physical energies, which
might show how hard or diligently you work, aptitude for sports, and
just generally having the go power to get what you want in life. Next
is mental energy; the energy spent thinking, communicating, and
pursuing intellectual goal and ambitions. Then, comes the practical
energy that is necessary to make your way in life; planning and
organizing, holding down a job and padding the old nest egg, being
responsible and dependable. Finally, Mars defines emotional energies
which usually show up first as sex drive, but may include other aspects
of emotions such as feelings, and setting emotional boundaries, and
drive toward artistic endeavors. The Mars position suggests whether
your energies are going to be largely physical (fire signs Aries, Leo,
Sagittarius), material (earth signs Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn), mental
(air signs Gemini, Libra, Aquarius), or emotional (water signs Cancer,
Scorpio, Pisces). Here then is Mars in the twelve signs:
- Mars is at its strongest
in Aries, its natural sign.
This placement represents high energy, initiative, courage and
impulsiveness. Most of the energies seem to come out as the physical
and emotional type, but in Aries, Mars is very active and assertive in
demonstrating enthusiasm for all four types of energy. This is a very
powerful position for Mars.
You have an unrestricted
drive to get projects done, to
start new projects, and to act decisively. Your enthusiasm is
contagious. An individualist with quite an ego, you always want to do
things your way. Based on the influence of this planet taken by itself,
you are not good at compromise or teamwork. There is a major part of
you that always wants to charge out ahead of the pack and be the
leader. Despite your apparent leadership abilities, you may function
best when you are working alone and independently because of your
demand to have your own way. If you are in a group, you will aspire to
be the leader. Headstrong and independent, you won't tolerate
opposition or interference and your temper can get you into trouble at
times. Mars in Aries makes you very competitive in a variety of ways.
This is perhaps the most courageous and enterprising Mars position.
You have a very strong sex
drive which is spontaneous
and easily aroused. Self-control can be a problems in this regard. As
on the physical side, you are often unrestrained and very demanding
The negative side of Mars
in Aries is a lack of patience
and discipline. Self-control and humility can be hard lessons, and
often they are never mastered.
- Mars in Taurus denotes
plenty of practical and
emotional energy, while the physical side is often rather flat, and the
interest in the intellectual is also a strain.
The planet of energy is not
very active in Taurus, as
the physical drive is reduced to a low gear. You may lack thrust and
mobility, but make up for this deficiency with outstanding endurance.
You are obstinate in many ways, yet practical, determined and very
stable. You pursue your material goals with intent determination.
Results are based on dogged persevering after a course of action is
determined. Once you finally get rolling in one direction, it is nearly
impossible to change your course. In Taurus, the energies of Mars are
indeed channeled into a practical mode that may center on acquiring
money, creature comforts and material possessions. Much your energy is
apt to be aimed at securing wealth and a very comfortable lifestyle.
Patient and precise in all that you do, you are a natural crafts person
and the fruit of your efforts is likely to produce a quality product.
Also high on your list of
priorities is the satisfying
of physical desires. You are very sensual and sexual partner. Your
approach to sex is straightforward and uncomplicated, without fantasies
or fetishes; never rushed or over-anxious. Emotionally stable, you are
apt to be a devoted and loyal partner.
The negative side of Mars
in Taurus is often the lack of
flexibility. Taurus is a fixed sign and energies expressed here
sometimes come out looking like stubbornness. Even emotions can be held
on to too tightly and then released with a major blow up.
- In Gemini, Mars produces
mental assertiveness and
mental energies are highest here. As wonderful as this seems, on the
practical side, you may be somewhat lacking, and emotionally, this
placement is prone to big swings and is best defined as erratic.
You have an active and
critical mind that may be
inclined toward going off in many directions at once. You love to
debate and engage in all types of intellectual contests. A satirical
wit is often a hallmark of this Mars in Gemini. Frequently, this
placement attracts persons to careers as reporters, journalists and
critics. Periodic job changes or handling a variety of jobs
simultaneously, are not uncommon with this placement since there is
much restlessness in your nature. Since so much energy is channeled
into mental and verbal activity, you are apt to be quite a talker. You
may make use of this strength by becoming a teacher, a lecturer, or a
related field that takes advantage of your ability to express yourself.
You pride yourself on your intelligence and verbal dexterity. To you, a
person's worth is based on their intelligence, and you want to be
respected as a formidable thinker.
Several of your romantic
relationships may be
superficial. You eagerly pursue new experiences in romance, but it may
be difficult for you to remain constant to any one special partner.
You're apt to be an incurable flirt. Your mind, however, is your most
active erogenous zone.
Mars in Gemini is
high-strung and produces much nervous
energy, but it is lacking in physical vitality or endurance. There is a
tendency for you to burn yourself out through stress and mental strain.
You may need to force yourself to get more exercise as a way of
balancing the physical with the mental.
- In Cancer, the Mars
energies are largely of the
emotional sort. While physical endeavors and practical affairs may find
the energy to function satisfactorily, mental energies are apt to
This placement often causes
actions to be tinged with a
very sensitive flavor. You express your energies in a very emotional
fashion. Much of the assertiveness of Mars is turned toward the
domestic scene. There is a cautious side and much defensiveness in your
nature. This placement of Mars is not very physical or competitive, and
not inclined to any sort of combat, physical or mental. Mars in Cancer
has a very positive side, as it often shows a quiet, peaceful nature.
While being very protective of your "turf," you are never too assertive
or demanding. In your work, you rarely compromise your views, and
prefer working independently and in control of affairs. You are
ambitious, and a hard worker. Since you are not, by nature, an
aggressive person, you pursue your desires in a round-about or
start-stop manner. You frequently change your direction and your goals.
You strive for security, and a good deal of your energy goes into this
effort. In this regard, you are fiercely protective of family,
co-workers, organization, or to whatever you devote yourself. You may
be known for the strength of your patriotism and loyalty.
Because of these strong
moods and feelings, you are a
very sexual and sensual person. You are also very loyal in
relationships, and certainly demanding of the same from your partner.
Infidelity threatens your sense of security and is therefore
There is an intensity of
these emotions that often
results in moodiness and discord in your domestic relations. Your
digestion is strongly affected by your moods and feelings. With
energies tied to feelings, you are prone to become very angry inside.
If this anger is suppressed it can result in ulcers and stomach upset.
- Mars in Leo is noted for
its physical energy, and it
manages reasonably well in the mental and practical departments, as
well. The ego and need for recognition make the emotional energy
In Leo, Mars displays
exceptional will-power and
creativity. With this placement, you project an air of confidence,
self-sufficiency, and vitality that cause people to sit up and take
notice. Activity is expressed in a dramatic fashion, suggesting that
you may be well suited for the stage. You love being on "center stage."
You are confident in most roles before an audience. This position
couples positive initiative, with stability and determination,
producing excellent leadership qualities. You have a definite
charismatic and gregarious flair. This also makes you a natural leader.
Ambitious and maybe a little egotistic, you want to lead. You'll do
whatever you need to do to be recognized and appreciated.
You take pride in your
sexual prowess. Affectionate and
physically demonstrative, you enjoy the drama and excitement of a
passionate affair. As much as it bolsters your ego to have several
sexual partners, you're constant in love while your partner pays plenty
of attention to you and is devoted. In romance, jealousy and
possessiveness are often by-products of this placement.
The strong, fixed opinions
and the overbearing manner of
this placement may often stir opposition. The pride and need to
dominate others, often sets up a degree of stubborn egotism. Excessive
pride can be your pitfall, if you haven't learned to control it. The
emotional side of Mars in Leo can cause to you to periodically
over-react with anger when affairs don't go your way.
- In Virgo, Mars focuses
its energy into the job, and
thus, the energies are primarily practical and useful. This placement
will also produce high or at least adequate mental energies, reasonable
physical energies, but on the emotional side, there is a severe limit
to the energy and the interest.
As one possessing this
placement, you are usually
considered a very conscientious worker. Much of your energy go into
careful planning before you charge ahead on any project. When you do
act, it's usually based on practical reasons, with every detail
carefully thought out. You are highly critical, and very exacting in
all that you do; in many respects, the perfectionist and the organizer.
Painstaking and dedicated in your work, you may lack imagination and
innovation, but never attention to detail. In the work place, you can
be a difficult person because you are so particular about everything
being done correctly. But indeed, you are the one that can be depended
on to get the job done right.
Virgo is associated with
the health fields. Doctors,
surgeons, nurses and social workers often have Mars placed here. There
is much associated with this placement that involves helping people.
You may be especially concerned with helping the sick and handicapped.
You need to feel needed, and you can be very tireless in such a role.
Mars, the indicator of
passions, is not very passionate
in Virgo. Your sex drive may be strong, but your willingness to express
it can be somewhat weak. Sometimes Mars in Virgo can even be a bit
puritanical. You also may be a little bit afraid of letting your
passions loose, and even be critical of those that do.
The negative side of Mars
in Virgo may be the sometimes
lack of tolerance. It's hard for you to get emotionally worked up over
anything, but you can be very demanding of yourself and others. This
placement often holds force and aggressiveness in check, releasing it
as irritability and nervous habits. And finally, you have to be careful
not to become the classic workaholic for this is a real possibility
with Mars in Virgo.
- In Libra, Mars is
curtailed by the rules of social
behavior and the need for the cooperation and approval. Energies are
very controlled and overwhelmingly favor the mental. A reasonable
degree of physical energies may also be present, but this is not what
this placement is noted for. Emotional and practical energies are
usually rather low, if noticeable at all.
- You are charming,
generous, amiable, and cooperative
owing to the persuasiveness of Mars in Libra. The normal assertive
behavior of Mars is tamed down in Libra, and passions are never allowed
to rule thinking. Yet you can become upset when your perception of
justice is not served. You aren't one to push matters to extremes, but
you do become very assertive when you experience injustice. You are
ready to take up arms against anything that would destroy harmony, or
that appears wrong or unfair. Your objective, unemotional approach
could enable you to be a good judge, manager, or diplomat.
- You are likely and wise
to select a very assertive
and energetic partner. You may need someone to push you along, as Mars
can be somewhat lazy in Libra. You often need motivation. Though you
are never pushy or very forceful, you do exert gentle and continuous
efforts toward a solid relationship. Although you are very affectionate
and romantic, your sex drive is somewhat low, and you expect more
emotional satisfaction than physical passion.
- You are not the type of
person who goes after what
you want with much conviction. You have difficulty asserting yourself
at times, and it can be hard for you to be decisive. Aggression in any
form threatens you, and you don't deal well with confrontations,
arguments, or physical combativeness. You want to make friends, not
- In Scorpio, Mars
displays powerful emotions and
desires. Mental, physical, and practical energies are are, likewise,
also very high. Indeed, the level of energy with this placement is high
in all respects.
You are strong,
self-reliant, extremely efficient, and
highly self-disciplined. An intensity of purpose surrounds all that you
undertake. This position illustrates the "do or die" principle very
well. You may have an innate ability to transform other people in some
significant way. You think of yourself as a "take control" person and a
force to be reckoned with. You probably are.

sensual, you put much of your
energy into sex. You are apt to be especially attractive to the
opposite sex, whether or not you physically attractive. You may be
fascinated with sexuality in all its expressions, certainly your
interest is always keen. You're jealous and possessive of your sexual
partners. Being trustworthy yourself, you expect the same from others.

loose control, but when your

detachment. Proud, dignified, strong-willed, and stubborn, you have the
sort of presence that is always felt by others even when you say
- Mars in Sagittarius
produces some of the highest
levels of physical energy and enthusiasm. The mental and emotional side
seems to function fine as well, but unfortunately, this is not the most
practical of Mars positions.

of justice is very strong. Your idealistic motives always seek to be
improving society and those individuals in your immediate environment.

makes you welcome in any social gathering. For you it is unrestricted
freedom at all cost, with rhythm and tempo that comes naturally to you.

have trouble sitting still for very long, and you want to be on the

position is the feeling that you
are invincible. Your irrepressible confidence and optimism usually gets
you through tough times. You may have been born under a lucky star. You
often succeed because you don't think much about failing. In many
respects you are a born gambler.
Mars in Sagittarius is not
known for being particularly
constant in love relationships. You approach sex as though it was a
sport, and it's hard to tie you down to one person. You may be afraid
of serious love affairs and being "trapped" in a relationship. This is
a position that really likes sex, but at times can be too bold or crude
in asking for it.
The negative of this
position is a lack of endurance and
consistency. Because your attention span is so short, and your
interests are so many, you start many projects, but often fail to
finish them. And even when you do get finished, the work can be a
little sloppy. You have a tendency to scatter your energies and try to
take on too much at one time.
- In Capricorn, the
energies of Mars are channeled into
the arena of personal attainment, and thus, the practical energy is
highest here. Physical and Mental energies are sufficient, too, but
emotionally, this placement may lack spark.
You are hard-working, very
determined. Since much of
your energy is focused on your career, you have a tendency to become
something of a workaholic. There is a drive to satisfy professional
ambitions. This is likely to manifest with innate managerial skills and
good old-fashioned common sense. You have strong material urges, but
even stronger is the need to get status and recognition. To attain
these ends, you use your energy in very practical and profitable ways.
You have little use for laziness or a lack of ambition.
Your sex drive is strong
and you have a full
appreciation of sensual pleasures. It's likely you conceal most of
these feelings behind a stiff and conservative demeanor. Your public
image is very dignified and reserved. It is as though you feel you must
always be in control of yourself and your emotions. Mars in Capricorn
is known for the ability to retain sexual vitality until very late in
life. In these later years, you are apt to be less restrained than in
Your weakness in the action
department is the tendency
to be too cautious and skeptical. You are apt to miss some real
opportunities on this account. You have difficulty breaking out of old
habit patterns and you are slow to pick up on new ideas. Somewhat
pessimistic, you go looking for problems and expecting the worst. You
take responsibility seriously, often too seriously.
- In Aquarius, the
energies of Mars are focused on
intellectual pursuits, and therefore, mental energies are highest here.
While Mars is focused on theory here, practical energies are usually
found in adequate levels. The physical and emotional sides may struggle
a little when Mars is in Aquarius.
The placement suggests the
presence of very high
principles and a modern outlook. You are concerned with the world of
ideas, particularly those of an unconventional or progressive nature.
Here the powers are independent, aggressive and enterprising.
You have good organizing
abilities and calculated
direction. You are a very good leader who can meet challenges with
serenity and poise. Aquarius is a fixed sign and you are stubborn most
of the time. If you believe in something, you put the idea forward with
the zeal of an evangelist. You think of yourself as open-minded;
willing to discuss the issues. Yet your discussions often get to be
heated arguments, and you rarely give in to an opposing view. You can
never work well under authoritarian direction, being one who is always
out to upset the establishment. You are an active reformer with little
respect for traditional ways. You can even be contemptuous of tradition
unless it is substantiated with logic. You demand the freedom to speak
frankly, and operate in your way.
Like the many other aspects
of your life, sexually you
are intrigued by anything new or unconventional. For you, variety is
the spice of life. Yet somehow you are usually stable and dependable
once you have found a mate.
The negative side of Mars
in Aquarius resides in
nonconformity. Indeed, you tend to lecture more than discuss, and you
tend to demand compliance with your agenda. Your way is sometimes way
out of the ordinary. At the same time, your energies are apt to produce
more thought than action. You are the rebellious type, and you can
become very impatient.
- In Pisces, Mars produces
emotions that are
unpredictable and often intense. Emotional energy is high, sometimes
too high. Mentally, Mars in Pisces does well, but on the physical and
practical side, this placement often comes up short.
The strength of Mars in
Pisces is found in the arts. You
may find yourself very much attracted to music and the arts. You may
relate to many of the world's fine artists who need the isolation and
introspection so much a part of this placement. You have a natural
sensitivity to color, tone and rhythm that may be of benefit to you in
In this sign, Mars responds
in a confused manner.
Assertive action is drowned in this sign that is so receptive,
emotional, sensitive, and even psychic. The result of the placement is
often a quiet exterior, but with much restlessness inside. Physical
strength is rare with this position. Resentment runs high. Excessive
emotions are a constant problem and a good deal of solitude is
frequently necessary to sort matters out. Mars in Pisces has trouble
asserting itself, and it is likely that you are somewhat shy and
Action is expressed in
"behind the scenes" roles where
you can work with subtlety, and your naturally intuitive sensitivity.
Much of your attitude stems from your keen sensitivity to the feelings
of others. You clearly know what the other person is feeling, and
therefore you are always ready to render assistance to those who are
most in need. You are apt to express the energies of Mars most actively
in support of the defenseless or the underprivileged. In this regard,
Mars in Pisces is often found in fields such as psychology and medicine.
Mars in Pisces is not a
highly sexed sign. Certainly,
you are romantic, but in order for you to be satisfied, the greater
need is emotional rather than physical. You're very idealistic about
love and relationships. In many ways, you view of sexual matters is
more like a fantasy with such high expectations that it is rarely
achieved in real life.

Astrology signs - Saturn
- Saturn is associated
with restrictions and obstacles.
These frustrating or inhibiting aspects of life are expressed through
the sign that Saturn occupies in your chart. Since the planet remains
in each sign for two and a half years, these are traits you may share
with most of your contemporaries. The traits described become more
pronounced when Capricorn is on the Ascendant

house of the chart. Saturn is the natural ruler of the tenth
house of the professional life, honor, fame, and success in the eyes of

to have your daily affairs in order and under strict control.
Unfortunately, the placement doesn't give you much unless you earn it.
You are a very thrifty person, spending only for what you really need.
Your nature tends to patient and disciplined, and you approach to life
reflects a matter-of-fact attitude. What you may lack in spontaneity,
you more than make up for with your willingness to work hard for
success. You are well suited for big business or politics, although
your determination can also reap benefits in other fields, especially
in the arts.
- Saturn in Gemini shows
adaptability, and a systematic
and logical approach. You face problems with a cool and rational sense
of control. Reasoning and problem solving abilities are exceptional,
and this placement is excellent for the scientific or mathematical
fields. Many with this placement experience problems with their early
education of with some aspect of communicating. Saturn is Gemini may
make if hard to learn lessons, but retention is good when the lesson is
learned. Speaking before groups is especially difficult, so you don't
waste words. Despite the difficulty you may have in learning, you have
a common sense head for business. You cut through detail and get to the
facts. You produce tangible results with little discussion.
- Saturn in Cancer places
a restriction on the show of
emotions. You have a tendency to hide your inner thoughts and feelings;
there is a self-protective coating where emotions are concerned. Home
and family weigh heavily on you, and you may give up opportunities to
respect these obligations. Family is both a bond and a burden. Often,
there is a lack of closeness and warmth between family members.
Positive inner action between you and your parents, or you and your
children, can be cause for concern. You may love them very much, but
it's difficult for you to show your feeling. There is an obligation of
responsibility associated with this placement that makes success in the
outside world difficult to attain.
- Saturn in Leo gives you
a serious personal need to
achieve recognition. You don't want to play second fiddle to anyone;
simply stated, you want to be the boss. Yet it is so hard for you to
express the creative talent that you know you have inside you. You may
have unreasonably high expectations for yourself and for those around
you. As a parent, you want to be the disciplinarian. Your children may
seem a burden to you, and indeed they may be. Because you are rather
stern in your dealing, you can have some difficulties in your personal
relationships with your children, as well as your mate. Try not to be
too hard on those you lead or those you live with. This placement often
shows a limited sense of humor, and a demeanor that is very reserved
and cautious. Leo is the sign of ultimate self-esteem, and Saturn is
the planet that tears down this quality. Don't let your self-image
- Saturn in Virgo gives a
measure of prudence and
practicality. You are hard worker and a careful worker, too. Your moral
attitude may make you too serious sometimes. Research, strategies, and
record-keeping are areas in which you may excel. Sometimes it hard for
you to sort the apples and decide what is important and what's not. You
may worry to much about trivial problems. Reserve and prudence follow
you through life. Your success in life will probably be gained by
cautious investment and conservative planning. You are too critical of
yourself and undervalue your talents and potential for success. Don't
think you have to be perfect to succeed.
- Saturn in Libra gives a
sense of justice and
fairness. This placement give refined approach to intellectual
pursuits. Diplomacy and tact come out owing to this Saturn position,
and you can work well with people because of a natural trait to
cooperate rather than compete. Since Libra is associated with
relationships, Saturn here may delay marriage and place obstacles in
the path of romantic affairs. A successful marriage will require much
patience and hard work. You may have an inferiority complex in forming
relationships. Feeling unlovable, you may run off prospective partners.
This same fear of rejection can cause problems in your dealing with the
outside world in general. Avoid a tendency to shut yourself off
socially from people.
- Saturn in Scorpio adds
much purpose and impatience to
your nature. You demand much of yourself and of others. You approach
responsibilities with an intensity of purpose that overwhelms people
who won't carry their share of the load. You have terrific willpower
and much energy. With your determination, it's hard to remain calm and
reflective. Secretive and unforgiving, you resent it deeply when you
are treated unfairly. Despite your strong drive for success, your
approach is usually subtle and calculating.
- Saturn in Sagittarius
produces a serious approach to
religion, education and philosophy. You are a highly principled person
who believes in earning what you achieve through hard work and
application. Your reputation is very important to you. This position is
associated with leadership in intellectual thought, but higher
education may have been blocked for some reason. You may have to
educate yourself to achieve the goals you desire. While Sagittarius is
the sign of faith, Saturn placed here can produce skepticism and a
desire to prove ideas. Conservative in views, you adjust to change
slowly and with much resistance. You challenges in life are likely to
be associated with religious or philosophical views. In these areas,
you are somewhat narrow-minded and fixed in your opinions.
- Saturn in Capricorn
gives much ambition and desire
for power. Saturn is strongest here because this is its natural sign.
Your career is very important to you. You invest much into it and you
expect to get much out of it. You are a common sense organizer and
planner. Diligent and dependable, you want to assume responsibility.
You always do more than your share, yet you may find it hard to
delegate authority, for you mistrust others' ability to life up to your
standards. You are most comfortable in the business or government
environment. You prefer the impersonal, structured, and unemotional
working situation. Your rise to the top will probably be very slow, but
it will be steady. Your utter determination will eventually pay off, if
perhaps rather late in life.
- Saturn in Aquarius gives
strong powers of
concentration. Your thinking is both democratic and scientific. Your
basically conservative attitudes notwithstanding, inventive and
original approaches come easily to you, as well as abstract mathematics
and symbolism. Saturn represents conservative restrictions. So this
placement is a bit paradoxical and confusing. Often, the placement
produces a view of the future that is rather bleak and pessimistic. You
may be inclined to work toward the betterment of some aspect of society
that is of some particular concern. Aquarius is the sign of the future
and of progress.
- You are a good friend,
responsible, impartial and
always loyal. Cool and collected, you are level-headed and stable. Yet
you may find it hard to make friends and you probably get little
support from those above you. Pride may make you a social loner.
Saturn in Pisces
produces a sensitivity in your
dealing with world at large. When making your way in the world, you may
feel vulnerable and defenseless. This a depressive placement that can
make you feel a little paranoid sometimes, often looking on the dark
side of a situation rather than the bright side. You may sometimes feel
like you are a victim of circumstances or a martyr of sorts. If
properly channeled, your sensitive side can be a plus. The productive
aspect of this placement is in the ability to exercise compassion in
society with a pragmatic approach. Your road to success may be in the
artistic, spiritual, or even the psychic. Religious beliefs may be the
cornerstone of your life, filling a need for structure and security.
Your test in life may be one of developing confidence in your innate
abilities. You may need to learn to trust and get in touch with your
subconscious. The source of your creativity may be hidden there.
Neptune, & Pluto
Outer or transSaturn Planets
- The outer planets,
Uranus, Neptune and Pluto don't
tell as much about individual personalities as they do about the
"mini-generation" of people all born under the same Uranus sign. For
this reason, I have not focused on the sign placement of these planet
in considering natal personalities and traits.
- Uranus transits the
zodiac in 84 years, spending
about seven years in each of the twelve signs. The characteristics of
each of the outer planets are social rather personal, and you are
linked to those contemporaries born in the same Uranus time span. Its
influences appears in the way that the group born during a period
display their rebellious spirit, desire for freedom, and need to effect
change as they grow older. Here is how the various sign placements of

society. They are willing to reorder traditional thinking, but always
in a conservative and carefully structured mode.

an intuitive intellect contributing to spiritual changes. The utopian

on illusory notions.
- Neptune transits the
zodiac in 165 years. Since
Neptune requires about fourteen years to pass through each sign, its
sign placement plays an insignificant role in the personality makeup.
Nonetheless, the sign in which Neptune resides may perhaps denote the
depth of imagination, the intuitive faculties, and the mystical
leanings of a whole generation of individuals.
other trans-Neptune dwarf
Since Pluto has been down-graded in
being a planet to being what is now termed a dwarf planet, it is likely
that astrologers will being exploring other trans-Neptune or Kuiper
belt bodies falling into this category. In time, this
and development should produce a greater understanding of these largely
- Pluto orbits the zodiac
in 248 years. The time spent
in each sign can varies a great deal because of the planets erratic
orbit. Since its stay in the various signs is lengthy and variable,
Pluto influences are noticeable only by the mark on a large generation
of people. The key word describing Pluto is revolution, and its
movement to new sign will mean significant societal changes.
