point of violence.
First House (House of Self) The house of self is
the most personal and powerful House in your chart, which symbolizes
-- your mannerisms, style, disposition, and temperament. This is the house of
your outward behavior, your likes and dis likes. The First House reveals both the way you
present yourself to others and the way the outside world sees you. It often indicates your
physical characteristics, especially your head and facial features. Sometimes called the
house of self-interest, it denotes what you want in life and how you go about achieving
it. The place in your chart at which this house begins is the most important point in a
horoscope (called the Ascendant or Aries Point), for it determines where all the other
houses will follow. In astrology the First House is thought of as a giant lens through
which the rest of your chart is seen and interpreted.
PISCES ASCENDANT If you were born with Pisces rising, you
carry within yourself a strong artistic gift that must sooner or later find expression.
You have an active fantasy life and a pronounced romantic outlook. You want life to be
perfect and since it isn't, you choose not to see what you don't want to see. Down deep,
many Rising-Pisceans believe that they alone are destined to suffer disillusionment in
life; Sometimes others sense a secret sorrow in you. Often you feel you were born at the
wrong time in the wrong place, and you are strongly drawn to the past.
Basically, you have a dauntless good will toward others. You tend to
be very sociable, fond of entertaining, and enjoy the warmth of companionship. You love
the good life, fine food and drink, especially beautiful clothes and travel. At parties
Rising-Pisceans are vivacious and verbal (sometimes you talk too much); you enjoy
performing unabashedly in front of a group. A talent for mimicry makes many Pisces
Ascendants turn to the theater.
The word sentimental comes to mind when describing you. Your tender
feelings are easily moved by sad stories, lost animals, unhappy human beings. Your
personality is also changeable, at times moody and distressed. Worry and imagined fears
overtake and sometimes overcome you. In your private life, you tend to be disorganized, a
bit careless, the kind who is forever losing or misplacing belongings. In work, however,
you are knowledgeable and creative and can be quite disciplined when working with a group,
especially in artistic projects. You are also successful in occupations that involve
travel. Many Rising-Pisceans frequently change their residence.
It often happens with Pisces Ascendants that a person who was an
adversary in early years becomes a valuable friend later on. You may sometimes have
trouble with a first marriage because of in-laws and relatives. As a Rising-Piscean you
are probably fond of children; your own children usually bring you pride and happiness.
If you have Pisces rising, you tend to have large, luminous eyes and
a sensuous mouth. You are likely to have wavy hair and well shaped feet.
The planet Neptune, which rules Pisces, is very prominent in your
horoscope. The influence of Neptune bestows compassion, sensitivity, keen intuition,
creativity, an interest in spiritual things and the occult. It also encourages confusion,
indecisiveness, worry, vagueness, carelessness, and self-deception.
SECOND HOUSE (House of Possessions) This is the House of
Money and Possessions. It relates to what you own in life and what you will acquire, your
income, and your financial prospects. This is the house of movable possessions, the things
that you physically take with you as you move through life. The Second House also tells
how you feel about money and possessions, and gives a clue to the kinds of objects with
which you like to surround yourself. To a certain extent it gives a picture of your
earning power and ability to handle money. The Second House often shows what activities
and projects may be a lucrative source of income for you.
THIRD HOUSE (House of Communication)T his is the House of
Communication. The third house relates to your immediate environment in three major areas:
self-expression, your family ties, and day to day travel. This house governs the way you
think, speak and write. Logic, memory, and manual skill are its domain. The Third House
often indicates what kind of early education you received, and your ability to study and
learn. Your relationship with brothers and sisters, aunts and uncles, cousins and
neighbors are part of this House's influence. Short trips and the vehicles for this type
of travel are governed by the Third House -- especially the travel you do for work and
education. URANUS in (Planet of change and originality): You tend to have an
unusual source of income or your money opportunities pop up suddenly and unexpectedly.
Your long-term financial picture will probably have spectacular fluctuations. If there are
no opposing influences in your chart, you can expect to gain overall. Antiques, curios,
and collectibles are lucrative for you. Good points: inventive, resourceful, unusual eye
for value. Bad points: sudden losses, erratic money dealings, financial problems with
URANUS IN GEMINI In Gemini, Uranus shows its power through
ideas. You are intellectual and imaginative. You possess a magnetic mind that draws people
to you, and have the ability to sway others to your point of view. You energy is forceful
in mental pursuits. You are attracted to offbeat ideas and are fascinated by psychic
phenomena and unexplained events. Uranus in Gemini produces a strong urge to express
yourself in writing and speaking. Even in ordinary communication, such as phone calls and
letters, you are original and captivating and your amusing way with words is evident. You
enjoy traveling, easily pick up foreign languages, and have an aptitude for music.
FOURTH HOUSE (House of Home; also early and latter parts of life
) This is the House of Home. The Fourth House governs your home life -- in the past,
the present, and the future. It indicates the kind of home you had in childhood and your
relationship with parents. Whatever you have brought into this life from your ancestors is
in its domain. In the present, the Fourth House relates to the kind of home you make for
yourself. Your current domestic affairs are under its influence, as are real estate
holdings and the ownership of land. This House also rules over the closing years of your
life, the kind of security you seek for old age. The Fourth House is one of the more
mystical houses in your chart, for it represents what you keep protected and secluded from
the rest of the world -- the place you call home in both a physical and emotional sense.
SATURN in (Planet of discipline and limitation):
concerned about and devoted to your family. In childhood you may have assumed
responsibility at an early age. Saturn in the Fourth House sometimes indicates an early
loss of a father. You will look after those who cared for you as a child when they are
old. You plan carefully for security in your old age, and are likely to spend your last
years alone and independent. Good point: gain through real estate. Bad point: difficulty
expressing feelings to family members. SATURN IN CANCER Saturn encourages too much
dependence on others in this emotional and clinging sign. As a Saturn-Cancerian, you love
to overindulge in eating, drinking and other sensual pleasures. In this position, though,
Saturn also gives a shrewdness and tenacity to your personality. You are superb at seeing
a task through to completion. You are also ambitious, and strive to find material wealth
to make your life secure. The obstacles that Saturn places in your path are insecurity and
a lack of confidence. Sometimes your early life is marked by problems with parents,
especially a mother. Many of you Saturn -Cancerians had to take on family responsibility
at a very young age. Natives of this position tend to marry someone older in a effort to
find an anchor and stability. Saturn endows you with good business sense, although you
must be cautious in dealings with relatives. The negative side of Saturn in Cancer is a
tendency to melancholy and self-pity. You are prone to digestive and stomach problems; if
you are not careful, you can become quite overweight.
FIFTH HOUSE (House of creativity and sex )This is the House
of Creativity and Sex. The Fifth House rules over everything you do for pleasure and to
express yourself creatively. Your sexual nature (the most basic creative urge in your
psyche) is a large part of its domain. Children and the joy you receive from them are
governed by this House. The Fifth House also relates to entertainment and holidays,
amusements and the arts. It rules love affairs, new undertakings in life, speculation and
gambles, games of chance. It is the House that expresses your artistic talents as well as
your ability to enjoy yourself in life. In childhood, pets and playmates are part of this
House, for it holds sway over all the things to which you instinctively give affection.
This is the House of your heart. PLUTO in (Planet of transformation): You are
impetuous and passionate, and will follow your desires where they lead you. You exaggerate
the importance of your love affairs until you become intensely involved. You have a strong
artistic bent. Good point: you feel responsibility to loved ones. Bad point: you harbor
resentment against a past love. PLUTO IN LEO (1937 - 1958) During Pluto's journey
through the masterful sign of Leo, the United States entered into World War Two and helped
the Allied Powers win a victory over Germany and Japan. Leo is also a magnanimous sign
(after the war the United States gave money and assistance to the defeated countries in
order to help rebuild them). On Oct. 24, 1945, the United Nations was formed, where each
country would express its point of view and attempt to work out its differences with other
nations. The Korean War was fought to save a nation from aggression. When Pluto is in Leo,
the personal influence is to emphasize love of power, a domineering ego, and
self-aggrandizement, but it also confers on its natives strong pride and a will to prevail
despite obstacles. There is a tendency toward arrogance, selfish, and sensual pleasures.
The generation that was born when Pluto transited Leo introduced the era of the pleasure
principle; there is also strong emphasis on mass hero-worship of personalities in the
media (for example, the Beatles).
SIXTH HOUSE (House of Service and Health)This is the House of
Service and Health. Often called the House of service to others, it indicates your need to
help others and to be useful in the world. In the old days it governed a person's attitude
toward servants and those of inferior standing. In the modern day, this House rules your
relationship with the people you work with, those who are subordinates, and your
employers. The Sixth House also relates to your state of health and especially applies to
illness brought on by worry or emotional upsets. This House often signifies whether you
have a robust or delicate condition, and what kinds of diseases you may be subject to.
in (Planet of luck and expansion): You tend to be successful in work, and get along
well with associates. You are loyal and dependable, and Jupiter usually brings monetary
reward. You love good food and tend to gain weight. Good point: work brings opportunity
for travel and expansion Bad point: health problems because of overindulgence.
IN VIRGO Jupiter in the practical sign of Virgo gives you a capacity for making a
success of a hobby or a pastime. Many famous Jupiter-Virgos start out with a shoestring
and build empires. If you have this Jupiter position you are smart, analytical, and
persevering. You figure out the surest route to the largest dividends. The power of
Jupiter surrounds you in intellectual pursuits, but the difference between Jupiter-Virgos
and other intellectual signs is that Virgos have an uncommon amount of commonsense. You
are also superb at handling detail, and do your best work a step at a time. You would make
a successful teacher, accountant, literary critic, journalist, or news commentator. Your
ability to grasp facts and then apply them systematically make careers in the fields of
space technology, science and medicine accessible to you. Your luckiest times of the year
are when the Sun is transiting the signs of Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn ( Mid-spring,
late summer, and early winter ).
SEVENTH HOUSE (House of Partnership and Marriage)This is the
House of Partnership and marriage. On a personal level, it relates to your husband or
wife, the mate you choose in life. It often indicates what kind of marriage you will have,
and whether you might divorce or remarry. This is your House of Partnerships, not only in
marriage but in work, business, legal affairs, and sometimes in politics. It covers legal
unions or contracts you enter into, and both sides of a question or dispute. The Seventh
House concerns your ability to work harmoniously with others. Paradoxically, it also
governs what astrologers call your open enemies, those who are usually your adversaries in
the business or professional world. The Seventh House is the opposite of the First, House
of Self; here you blend your personality with others in order to pursue shared goals.
in (Planet of spirituality and illusion): In marriage and partnerships you look for
compatibility of spirit, common goals in life or an artistic or religious vision that you
share. However, an unrealistic or confused attitude about what you want in a partner may
lead to the possibility of an illicit love affair while married. Good point: sensitive and
responsive to needs of partner. Bad point: too easily swayed; open to disappointment.
IN LIBRA (1st & 2nd BOOMER GENERATION) Neptune in the romantic sign of Libra
emphasizes idealism and love. Those born while Neptune transited Libra have been called
the love generation. Neptune-Librans seek harmony and balance, and are deeply bothered by
injustice in the world. Many people who were born during the early years of Neptune's
journey through Libra became active in the anti-war movement of the 1960s. Neptune-Librans
strongly believe in the concepts of brotherly love and resistance to inequity. While
Neptune transited this sign of peace the United Nations was founded. Libra is also the
sign of partnership and marriage; this era brought a new questioning into the values of
marriage, with a resultant rise in divorce and search for happiness in love. On a personal
level, Neptune in this position produces a magnetic attraction to the opposite sex, and at
times a lack of willpower and determination. MOON in (Planet of emotions and
instincts): Security is very important to you in marriage and relationships. Chances
are you will marry a parental figure of some kind. Your spouse will probably be protective
of you. You are likely to become popular with the public at sometime in your life. Good
point: responsive in partnerships; sensual in marriage. Bad point: changeable in your love
relationships; possible divorce.
MOON IN LIBRA
Bright side: More adaptable, creative, charming,
Dark side: More indecisive, self-indulgent, dependent,
Libra is the sign of esthetic perceptions and here the Moon's
romantic, glamorous influence is accentuated. If you have the Moon in Libra you have a
keen appreciation for beauty and art, and an artistic eye unmatched by any other Moon
sign. You also have a heightened awareness to your environment and to other people.
However, what you truly value are those experiences that make life more beautiful and
pleasing. You abhor coarseness, vulgarity or strife. Your immediate reaction to anything
to anything unpleasant is to deny it -- or if that is impossible at least to put it in its
best possible light. You try to surround yourself with comfort and lovely objets in
a tranquil and luxurious environment. If it were possible, you would live forever in a
flower-filled room with soft music playing in the background.
Because you enjoy beautiful things, you are happy to spend your (and
sometimes other people's) money on possessions that catch your fancy. You are the kind who
will walk into a shop and instantly spot the perfect thing to go with what you have in a
closet at home. The presentation and ritual surrounding a thing is as important to you as
the thing itself. A meal served on fine china and crystal with embroidered linens, flowers
and candles on the table is as important as the taste of the food itself.
The Moon in the balanced sign of Libra endows you with an open,
independent mind that tries to evaluate the world dispassionately and rationally. A Moon
in Libra also confers great personal charm and enhances the ability to get along with
people. You are marvelous at understanding the other person's point of view (though you
never lose sight of your own interest). For the most part you are pleasing and easy to
live with and have a genial disposition. Libra is the astrological sign of partnership,
and as a Moon native you function well in that relationship. Very often your destiny is
tied up with a strong and influential person with whom you form a connection early in
life. To a large extent, what you accomplish depends on other people.
Essentially you love with your head rather than your heart. There is
something a bit calculated about your carefully balanced emotional nature. It is not that
you are unemotional, but love is more an esthetic pleasure than steamy passion. You try to
create something beautiful -- fanciful if need be -- from every intimacy. You may go
through a number of affairs and marriages before you finally settle down with someone with
whom you are mentally compatible (more necessary to you than sexual compatibility).
No matter what your sign may be, the Libra-Moon qualities of
refinement and grace can be traced in your character. If your Sun is in a water sign
(Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces), Libra Moon underlines the intuitive side of your personality
and gives you a strong, balanced intellectual approach. Whatever your Sun sign, a Moon in
Libra gives you a polished, charming manner with people, an instinct for fairness, and

EIGHTH HOUSE (House of Death and Regeneration; also Legacies)
This is the House of Death and Regeneration. The Eighth House is one
of the three mystical houses in your chart (the others are the fourth and the twelfth),
and one of the most difficult to understand. Sometimes called the House of spiritual
transformation, it rules the life forces that surround sex, birth, death, and the
afterlife. It concerns legacies and what you inherit from the dead - both materially and
spiritually. Money that belongs to your partner, and taxes and debt are also in this
House's domain. The Eighth House may give some indication of the conditions surrounding
your death, although precise time always remains a mystery. Surgery is governed by this
House, since it relates to regeneration. This is the House of psychic powers and occult
studies and knowledge. SUN in (Planet of vitality and individuality): You are
philosophical and have deep insights; you strive for self-improvement. You may benefit
from inheritance or from money through a marriage partner. There is the possibility of
achieving fame near the end of your life or after death. Good point: you take pride in
responsibilities. Bad point: may suffer the early loss of father or husband. MARS in
(Planet of energy and assertiveness): You are passionate about life and have a strong
sex drive. You are attracted to the occult, also to medicine and the healing arts. There
may be conflicts in your family over wills or legacies. Good point: powerful and brilliant
researcher. Bad point: need to protect yourself against financial loss because of an
MARS IN SCORPIO Mars in Scorpio underscores persistence and
intensity. As a Mars-Scorpio you are a hard-driving and resourceful person whose strength
is not so much shown in the heat of action as in determination and relentlessness. Your
efforts are well disciplined, always directed toward a purpose. There are no wasted
movements or needless expenditures of energy. You have a strong and deeply felt sexuality.
However, it is sometimes an emotional sexuality, displayed in jealousy, anger, hurt
feelings and resentment. Though it is possible for you to be ruthless in your
relationships, you are far more often simply quarrelsome and touchy. This position of Mars
enhances imagination and a powerful creative drive. You are always able to move an
audience. Often you are attracted to professions or situations that contain an element of
danger or death. MERCURY in (Planet of the mind): You have a penetrating mind and
look for some way to communicate your insights. You have a talent for research and
analysis. Money comes to you through other people or a marriage partner, but there may be
insurance or legal problems. Good point: ability to see into human motivation. Bad point:
may suffer the early death of a relative. MERCURY IN SAGITTARIUS If you have this
position of Mercury you are quick and bright, breezy, to the point. You prize freedom of
expression and cannot bear the thought of any power of censorship over what you have to
say. Your mind is restless, inquiring, always looking for stimulation. You may jump from
project to project or change jobs frequently. Travel is often involved in your work.
Mercury-Sagittarians never stop learning; yours is an ongoing, lifetime education. You
love to read, explore new ideas, learn about other people. You are fast on your feet and
can grasp ideas instantly, but a frequent failing is your lack of concentration. Some
people find you too blunt and outspoken, but that quality springs from Sagittarius's basic
honesty. You never deliberately set out to deceive or dissemble; if you are tactless it's
because you don't think before you speak. Sometimes you find it difficult to complete a
long, sustained piece of work.
NINTH HOUSE (House of Mental Exploration) This is the House
of Mental Exploration and Long Distance Travel. The Ninth House can be thought of as a
widening of the Third House; study, travel, and mental pursuits are expanded in the Ninth
House onto a much wider plane. This is the House of the higher mind. Under its domain are
higher education, philosophy and the study in depth of profound subjects. Long journeys of
both the mind and the physical body are controlled by this House. It concerns actual
travel to foreign lands and business interests in other countries. It governs the meeting
of foreigners who expand your way of thinking, and also the study of languages. The Ninth
House rules your public expression of ideas, and is therefore the House of publishing and
VENUS in (Planet of love and pleasure): You have warmth and
understanding for people from different backgrounds. You are open to new ideas and
experiences. Chances are good that you will receive some kind of honor in your life. You
may possibly be married abroad or marry a foreigner. Good point: high ideals. Bad point:
you long for the unattainable -- Nympholeptos.
VENUS IN SAGITTARIUS Venus-Sagittarians begin love affairs
with a spirit of adventure. You like to experience the excitement of love in the same way
you search for diversion in the rest of your life. First attractions are always wildly
romantic; as a Venus-Sagittarian you never seem to have commonplace or banal love affairs.
However, you cannot sustain the emotion, and therefore never completely sacrifice your
freedom to another person. What you want is the unobtainable -- perfect love -- and even
if you could find it you would shrink from being possessed by it. With such contradictory
attitudes, it's no wonder you leave your lovers terminally puzzled. Basically,
Venus-Sagittarians are high spirited, outgoing, and highly imaginative. You tend to
attract powerful and influential friends and find it much easier to deal with friends than
with lovers. For one thing, friendship is less demanding. Luck in creative affairs
surrounds projects undertaken in foreign countries or far from home.
TENTH HOUSE (House of Career)This is the House of Career and
Public Standing. Its opposite house (the Fourth House) rules the home; the Tenth House
rules all matters outside the home - your profession, your status in the community, and
your public reputation. It has been called the House of ambition, aspiration and
attainment. This House also reveals in what esteem you are held by others. The Tenth House
reflects your image, as shown in the power, position, and honors that you may achieve. It
is an outward expression of your talents, the way you accept responsibility, the place you
arrive at through your own efforts. This House has a great influence on your material
success in life.
ELEVENTH HOUSE (House of Hopes and Wishes; also Friends )This
is the House of Friends and of Hopes and Wishes. Unlike its opposite house (the Fifth
House) with its concern for immediate pleasures, the Eleventh House has to do with
long-term dreams and goals and with intellectual pleasures. This House governs your
involvement with groups and organizations that have to do with your work, profession or
family. The clubs, societies, or political associations you belong to are under its
domain. This House often indicates the kinds of friends and acquaintances who can best
further your interests and objectives in life. The Eleventh House reflects your ability to
enjoy other people. On its highest level this House represents the harmonious working
together of all people, each one doing what best expresses his or her individual
personality. It is the House of idealism and vision.
TWELFTH HOUSE (House of Secrets, Sorrows and Self-Undoing)
This is the House of Secrets, Sorrows and Self-Undoing. It is the
most mystical of all the Houses, the final House, the end of the circle. This is not
necessarily a negative and gloomy place, but it does define the limitations placed on your
life. It governs disappointments, accidents, trouble and self-defeat. It rules unseen
forces, secret enemies, escapism, asylums, hospitals, and prisons. The twelfth House has
been called the House of Karma, the House of Spiritual debt, for it contains the rewards
and punishments for the deeds one commits in the world. It is associated with psychic
powers and the ability to discover at last the meaning of life.
