HOROSCOPE INTERPRETATION

Individuality :- Sun Sign interpretation on http://members.att.com/~jimmar/index.html

All other planets:---For my interpretation of the other planets send for the wheels and I will give you the page number where you can find those reading.

When considering the persons own knowledge of the sign influence they feel most dominate in their life, we must look to their Sun Sign.

Read wheels as follows:- Sun in Scorpio in the 6th house. Your power - vitality - self-expression is used penetratingly -passionately - resourcefully involving work, health as to illnesses, debts.

S U N I N S C O R P I O - 6th HOUSE Individuality

This position of the Sun gives you a very forceful personality. You have a tremendous strength of will. You are a magnetic person and attract other people to you who find you fascinating which makes them want to be around you. The department of life that this influence effects the most is the 6th house of work and health. This positions gives you the vitality to overcome adverse health problems. Makes you resourceful in you work habits giving vent to your own self-expression..

The wheels give you the basic meaning. You must use your imagination and transfer those stilted sentences into meaningful dialog. Do likewise with all the planets and Moon. rotate the wheels till they match your chart.

For instance ---

Moon in Taurus in the 12th house. Your response - feeling - fluctuation is used persistently - possessively - practically in respect to intuition sacrifices, seclusion, confinement, secret enemies.

M O O N - I N - T A U R U S - 12th HOUSE - Personality

You have a very conservative out-look on life with deep powers for concentration. Your senses tend to be slow but once you have made up your mind you will more then likely stick to your own decisions whether you are right or wrong. You are not easily upset for your mind quickly assimilates new ideas deliberately and your decisions are then carefully considered. Being positioned in the 12th house may make you shy away from any public life. Must guard against secret enemies. This position may give you psychic ability, however you would have to recognize and develop this ability.

You learn by using the wheel interpitation and putting those words into practicle, meaningful dialog. Write down the meanings of the planets in the signs in the houses then make up your own interpretation. You may also gain knowledge by noting how people handle those "planet in sign in house" settings. Learn to trust those meanings and you will find they ring true in peoples lives.

Also realize that the signs give a planet its element meaning such as fire, earth, air and water and also cardinal, fixed and mutable meanings. Use these meaning in your interpretation dialog.

RISING SIGN

It denotes the life style of the person. The interpretation given on the wheels of that sign. Also consider the aspects of Mercury to the ascendent and the Midheaven, it will be with ease or difficulty accordingly. Here is an important fact we should be aware of : Nature gives or denies particular influences according to the pattern of their chart, nevertheless, Nature never says "this is and only this is the way"; basically we are free agents and may exercise a free will in life but the fact remains, as a general rule we don't. But this is not to say that we can't. When we make up our mind to accomplish a particular purpose in life all the creative energies in the universe will back us up and avail us the necessary elements to accomplish our aim. However, Nature, the creative mind, does not gamble with its own purpose for life. A sufficient number of patterns predestinated to be, will arise upon the scene of life, so at least a few such species will transmit those ingredients required for the evolution of Nature's desired effect in life.

SUN - Individuality

Its position in the chart shows where you may accomplish something in life, your positions of authority. In the first part of Genesis it says, " and God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and for years." To the ancients, the Sun was known as Shamash, Ra, Apollo "breaker of family curses" and Tonatiuh, "dispenser of fate". The Sun gives you light and life. It also represents how and where you shine. The Sun is the star of self-expression, ego-identity, leadership, honor, glory and pride. As such, it is the chief symbol for the circulatory system and the pulse of life. When you come to terms with your solar power you become a star.

MOON - Personality

Astrologically speaking, the Moon is an instinctual force. It is an ever-changing symbol of your inner life including such things as home, family, mother, dreams, feelings, the public, women and your early childhood. The Moon represents your environment, the one you were born into and the one you create for yourself. It also talks about your support system, and your "involuntary nervous system." More than that, the Moon symbolizes your unconscious life. The Moon represents what happens while you're sleeping.

MERCURY - Mind

Astrologically speaking, the planet Mercury is the conceptual force. It is a symbol of your mental life and such things as your mind, ideas, analytical abilities, as well as your sense and style of communication. Mercury describes patterns of thought, of learning and of assessing reality. Consequently, it affects your self image and the force of your thought.

VENUS - Emotions

Astrologically speaking, the planet Venus is the force of affinity. Venus represents a good part of what you attract, cherish, enjoy and are receptive to. Venus describes much of what makes your life worth living: love, civilized sex, seduction and creativity. Venus is also an indicator for many of the qualities you look for in a mate and your sense of femininity. More than a symbol of your values, Venus represents beauty, devotion to pleasure, appreciation of art and romantic longings. Venus rules such things as skin, hair & kidneys.

MARS - Energy

It is a symbol of your drive, action and energy. The placement of Mars in your chart influences the condition of your muscular system. Mars is associated with a lot of "A" words: aggression, anger, arousal, ardor, and appropriate assertiveness. Mars also represents things that are urgent, things that trigger your temper, and things that you furiously pursue. Mars indicates many of your issues with men and the "male ego."

JUPITER - Imagination

Astrologically speaking, the planet Jupiter is the force of encouragement and expansion. Jupiter is the biggest planet and possibly a sun in the making. No matter what, Jupiter measures up big. It is a symbol of your success, luck, optimism, generosity, blessings, good fortune, adventure and opportunities for growth.

Neptune represents fads, impressionability, style, glamour, imagination and inspiration. Neptune, Poseidon, "The Artful Creator" also represents your charisma, creativity, and your spiritual life.

PLUTO - Subconscious drive

Astrologically speaking, the planet Pluto is a symbol of what the ancients used to call the "secret parts," including reproductive and elimination systems. Pluto is the force of cleansing. Are we talking about taking a bath or enema? Are we washing our hands or confessing our sins? There are physical cleansing such as a with a juice, it can be spiritual cleansing as well. There is therapy combined with meditation.

MOON'S NODE

The nodes represent points in space where the moon's orbit crosses the orbit of the Earth as the Earth orbits the Sun. It's for this reason that the nodes have long been associated with reincarnation and past and future lives. The illustration represents the crossing of two orbits. The past is in one direction, the future is in another.

Let me go over the way to read a chart.

1. Hemisphere emphasis.

a. Most planets on the east, self propelled; Most planet on the west, people propelled; Most planets above the horizon, extravertic; Most planets below the horizon, introvertic.

2. C F M - F E A W Most planets in each category together determines the sign that must be considered when determining the individuality of a person along with the Sun sign.

Aries.....CF.=(cardinal fire)..........Taurus...FE.(fixed earth)..Gemini......M A.(mutable air) Cancer....CW.=(cardinal water)...Leo......FF.(fixed fire)........Virgo.......M E.(mutable earth) Libra.....CA.=(cardinal air)...........Scorpio..FW.(fixed water).Sagittarius.M F.(mutable fire) Capricorn.CE.=(cardinal earth)...Aquarius.FA.(fixed air)......Pisces......M W.(mutable water)

Cardinal=active,outgoing..Fixed = resistant to change...Mutable = flexible, changeable Fire=Ardent,keen .............Earth = practical,cautious.....Air = intellectual, communicative Water=emotional,unstable, sensitive.

3 RISING SIGN...Sign on the eastern horizon -- indicates the persons life style . ....Use the reading on the wheel under the sign indicated.

4. Aspects

..a. Squares -- planets 90 degrees from each other --Planets orb 7 degrees and 10 degrees for the Sun-Moon-Mercury-and Venus. Squares are dynamic aspects, challenging you, provoking you to act. The reason they are considered adverse aspects -- when ever you assert your prerogative someone is always there to try to knock you down. T-square are most dynamic.

..b. Trines - sextile:- Planets 120 and 60 degrees apart. Orbs same as squares. Trines are easy aspects that let you get away with things. A person with a lot of trines --- lucky or lazy person.

..c. Conjunction -- planets at the same degree. Orb same as trine & square. stressful for Mars and Saturn with another planets. Cooperating when just the other planets are involved.

..d. Opposition -- Inconjunct, 180 and 150 degrees apart. Orb squares, stressful.

..e. As the planets transit the zodiac they make aspects to your natal planets which are very meaningful to you life conditions.

..f. First analysis and synthesizes keep short by just using major aspects. After having a good look at your psyche, look for past transits of Mars in its 2 year cycle, squares to natal planets cause stressful times.

..g. Check Jupiter in its 12 year cycle they are advantageous times and all the other transits for activity going on in your life. Remember all aspects are a challenge for your good, but don't you mess up!!!! The wheels are just as good for reading the transits of present day planets positions. You can get them in horoscope magazines if you don't have an ephemeris.

..h. Check Saturn in it 28 to 30 year cycle. The square and opposite aspect denotes trying times according to the house it transits. The return or conjunction denotes a new beginning, casting off the old and looking for new adventures.

The YOD aspect -- It shows the special purpose a person is given to accomplish in this lifetime.

The YOD it involves two planets that are in a sextile aspect to one another, both of which are inconjunct to a third planet. One important part of the YOD , of course, is the apex - where the two inconjunct's meet - also called the point of action, this is where the driving force begins and to which transiting planets stimulate. It is the positive point of the YOD. The opposite point is the reaction point. Where there is action there is reaction, Newton's Law. The action and reaction points, the houses and the planets will tell you just exactly why you were put on this earth. They say it is your reason for living, I call it your "The Fickle Finger of Fate." It all depends on you.
