Life Destiny for Angela Merkel

What Is Astrology?

The basic philosophy behind Astrology is the idea that we live in a holistic universe, that there is
a deep interrelationship between the whole and its parts, and that anything, be it an event, a
group, or an individual that is born at a particular point in time and space in a sense embodies
the whole universe focused at that point.

Obviously it is impossible to determine the state of the whole universe from a particular point in
time and space, so in Astrology we take the Solar system as the greater whole and regard the
patterns formed by the Sun, Moon and planets as seen from a particular time and place on earth
as a reflection of the forces acting at that time and place.

In natal astrology, astrology applied to individual human beings, the Sun, Moon and planets
symbolise basic human needs, desires or urges which we all possess. It is the ever changing
interrelationship between these basic functions or archetypes, and their relationship to the
horizon at the time of birth, that are used to symbolise the personality structure of a human
being.

Your Life Destiny Report details the following:

Elements

Each of the twelve signs is assigned to one of the four Elements: Earth, Air, Fire and Water. Each
planet together with the Ascendant and Midheaven according to its sign therefore has an
elemental quality.

Modality

Each of the twelve signs is assigned to one of three Modalities: Cardinal, Mutable and Fixed.
Each planet together with the Ascendant and Midheaven according to its sign therefore has a
specific quality or mode of operation.

The Planets

The Sun, Moon and the planets: - Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and
Pluto, represent specific functions, drives, or urges within the total personality. Just as in the
body the various organs; heart, kidneys, liver etc. perform their own specific functions yet
operate as part of a total system; so the planets can be regarded as symbolising the 'organs' of
your total personality.

The Outer Planets

The planets beyond Saturn: - Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, move through the signs so slowly that
the sign positions of these planets refer more to the generation of which we are a part, rather
than individual characteristics.

It is the house position that shows where we will meet with the principles expressed by these
planets in our lives. The aspects of these planets to the personal planets show how we get on
with the principles they represent.

These trans-Saturnian planets cannot be seen without the aid of a telescope. Therefore they
represent powerful forces that are beyond conscious control. These planets connect us with
forces and levels of reality beyond our experience as individual human beings. They do this by
breaking down the boundaries of the ego (symbolised by Saturn), to allow the inflow of higher
ideals and goals into our ego-centred minds. This can often mean the total disruption or
destruction of the outer and inner structures of our lives in order to make this possible.

Life Destiny for Angela Merkel
Aspects

A conjunction is where two planets are at the same place, and their energies are merged
together. Trines (when two planets are 120 degrees apart), and sextiles (60 degrees), between
two planets indicate an easy flow of energy between the functions involved, they therefore show
aspects of your personality that work harmoniously together indicating inherent abilities or
talents.

Squares (when two planets are 90 degrees apart) and oppositions (when two planets are 180
degrees apart) show that there is some stress or tension between the two functions involved.
Squares and oppositions between planets therefore indicate inner conflicts and tensions
(conscious or unconscious) that throughout your life you will be forced to recognise and express
in a positive way.

If you are not conscious of these inner conflicts, they will be confronted through seemingly 'fated'
external events or in relationships with others, particularly when the planets involved are
activated by transits (detailed in your forecast).

A tolerance or "orb" of about 8 degrees is allowed either side of the exact aspect, but the wider
the orb, the weaker the influence. To the right of each pair of 'aspect' symbols is a group of five
stars assss, the more dark stars there are the more important the connection.

There are also two sets of minor aspects. They have a smaller orb of influence, and their effects
are not so noticeable. These include the semi-sextiles (when two planets are 30 degrees apart)
and the quinqunx (when they are 150 degrees apart). These minor aspects indicate energy
patterns that are not well integrated into the individual's character. They exist, and of course,
must be accommodated somehow.

The other series includes the semi-square (when two planets are 45 degrees apart) the sesqui-
quadrate (when two planets are 135 degrees apart). These minor aspects are quite similar to the
square, only not quite as potent. They represent energy patterns that must be acted upon by the
individual and, when properly used and understood, can bring about benefits in self-
understanding.

This is not to say that trines and sextiles are "good" and squares and oppositions are "bad".

A chart dominated by flowing aspects may indicate someone for whom everything comes too
easily, they will therefore lack any real motivation and may not achieve much during their life.

A chart with many stressful aspects, on the other hand, may indicate someone who driven by his
or her own inner conflicts, can achieve something of real worth in their lives. The stressful
aspects are just as necessary to us as the flowing aspects, and most of us are a fairly even
balance of both.

The activity of each planet is further modified by the sign in which it is placed, the effects of
these modifications in your particular case will be described in the chart analysis.

When astrologers cast horoscopes, it is important that the precise time of birth be used because
it helps to determine the correct orientation of the houses of the chart. The position of the
planets within the twelve houses, indicate which of these twelve areas of life concerns are most
important for you.

Should a house have no planets, this does not mean that the affairs of the house are not
important. It merely means that those affairs are probably well integrated and are not therefore
major issues for you. But when a house has a planet or several planets, it indicates that the
issues of the house are more significant.

The Signs

6
Life Destiny for Angela Merkel
During the course of a year the Sun, as seen from the earth, appears to move in a circle against
the background of the stars, this circle is known as the ecliptic. The axis of the earth's rotation is
inclined at an angle to the plane of the ecliptic, so, if the earth's equator is imagined to be
extended into space, it cuts the plane of the ecliptic at two points known as the equinoxes.

One of these points, the vernal or spring equinox, is taken to be the beginning of the circle and is
known, both in Astronomy and Astrology, as the first point of Aries. Astrologers then divide the
ecliptic into twelve sections of 30 degrees each thus generating the twelve signs. The autumn
equinox is directly opposite the first point of Aries and is the beginning of the sign of Libra. When
the Sun is at these points, days and nights are of equal length.

During the summer months the Sun appears to rise higher and higher in the sky, reaching its
highest point at midsummer or the summer solstice, the beginning of the sign of Cancer. This is
the time of the longest day and shortest night. Similarly, it reaches its lowest point in the sky in
midwinter or the winter solstice, the beginning of the sign of Capricorn. This is the time of the
shortest day and longest night.

The signs of zodiac therefore, has nothing to do with actual star constellations, but is based on
the relationship between Sun and Earth.

The Houses (ignore when time of birth not known)

You will see that the chart is divided into twelve sections. These represent the division of the
space surrounding you at birth. The sign on the first house "cusp" (the line that marks the
beginning of the house) is the sign that was rising over the horizon at the time and place of your
birth this is your rising sign, (or Ascendant). The sign on the seventh house cusp is the sign that
was setting at the time of your birth, the line between the first and 7th house cusps therefore
represents the horizon.

Planets in the upper hemisphere were therefore above the horizon at the time of birth, and
planets in the lower hemisphere were below the horizon; planets in the left hemisphere (left of
the line joining the 0th and 4th house cusps) were rising in the east and planets in the right
hemisphere were setting in the west.

Each house represents a specific area of life experience. The positions of the planets in these
houses therefore show in what areas of experience the effects of these planets will be most
noticeable. The Ascendant is an important point and has its own particular meaning.

The Birth Chart

The birth chart is a symbolic map of the solar system as seen from the earth at the time and
place of birth. The chart is comprised of three basic factors.

(1) The aspects (angles) formed between the Sun, Moon and planets, as seen from the earth.
These are indicated by the lines on a birth chart.

(2) Each planet is located in a particular sign of the zodiac. The symbols for each sign are placed
around the edge of the chart, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio,
Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces.

(3) Each planet is also located in a particular house in the chart. These are indicated by the
twelve sections of a birth chart.

Your birth chart is therefore a unique blueprint of your personality, every one is different. When
you are born, the birth chart represents a set of potentials, it describes the 'form' of your
personality and the contents must be added through the experiences of life.

Life Destiny Interpretation

Your birth chart shows the exact positions of the planets at your time of birth. It also tells you the
sign of the Zodiac that was rising at your time of birth, known as your 'ascendant'. How the
planetary positions of your birth chart relate to each other are interpreted on the following pages
outlining your potential development. The interpretation begins with Elements and Modalities of
your horoscope.

a
The Sun
In the solar system the Sun is the focal point around which all the other planets revolve, bound
by its gravitational force. Similarly, in the birth chart the Sun represents the "centre" of our
personality, or the core of our being, around which all the other psychological drives and needs,
symbolised by the planets, revolve.

Just as, in the solar system, the Sun is the source of light and life generating energy, so the Sun
represents the source of consciousness and life within us all. It is our will to be and our sense of
individuality. The birth chart, however, represents the solar system as seen from the earth, not
the Sun. Most of us are not centred in our Sun, but in our earthbound, or sense-bound ego. For
most of us then, the Sun represents our 'Higher Self' or Spirit. It is the immortal spark of the
universal spirit which is uniquely ourselves, as opposed to our transient and mortal ego centred
personality. The Sun is therefore what we are striving to become.

The sign position of and aspects to the Sun, as seen from the earth, show how this radiant inner
self works through the medium of our ego centred personality. It is the fundamental tone of our
being, and as such is the most important placement in the chart.

a in 4
Sun in Cancer
The sun is in the cardinal water sign of Cancer in your chart. With the Sun in this sign, you are
basically oriented toward your emotions. You are impressionable and sympathetic to others and
able to listen patiently, but when your own sensitive feelings are hurt, you can be very moody
and irritable. You tend to protect your sensitive feelings and emotions behind a hard exterior
shell, just like the crab. Your family and roots are important to you, but you need to develop your
own individuality. You will have a strong parental instinct and will be protective and supportive to
your children. If you have no children, this will probably be expressed in some other area of your
life. You can be very tenacious when pursuing your goals, or holding on to a relationship or other
situation, perhaps too tenacious at times. If tenacity is carried to extremes you may have a
tendency to hang on to real or imagined hurts.

a r j assss
Sun Square Saturn
Saturn is in a Square aspect to your Sun. You may therefore find that occasionally life will
challenge your attempts to express your true nature. Obstacles and delays may occasionally
block your path to success. You may blame your difficulties on fate or karma, and with Saturn
involved this may be true to some extent, but the lesson to be learned is how to meet this test
and turn it into something positive. Saturn is teaching you the need for patience and restraint,
that anything worthwhile has to be won through constant effort and discipline before you can
reap the rewards.

Life Destiny for Angela Merkel

a q K aaaaa
Sun Conjunct Uranus
The Conjunction between the Sun and Uranus generates a great deal of restless energy. You
have a strong urge for complete freedom and independence in all areas of your life, and you will
resist fiercely any attempts to tie you down. However, you should beware of being too rebellious
or you may find yourself left on your own, to pick up the pieces of your life.

The positive side of this aspect is your strong creativity and originality which could lead you down
many unconventional paths, making your life a statement of your own individuality. Your energy
and determination can also inspire others to break what ever chains are binding them and follow
your lead. Possessing a bright vision of future possibilities, you generally do not let the past hold
you back.

a r l aaaaa
Sun Square Neptune
With the Square between the Sun and Neptune you may occasionally experience some confusion
concerning your sense of who you are, and where you are going in life. Past experiences and
events may occasionally raise issues that force you to examine yourself honestly and understand
how you drew these experiences to you, and what you must learn from them. However, at
times, you will often evade reality by escaping into a world of dreams and fantasy.

There will also be times when you tend to underestimate your abilities, with the fear of failure
preventing you from doing things that you would be fully capable of. In time, and probably after
a great deal of self analysis, you will become more confident about your own creative potential
and set higher goals for yourself.

a t ; aaaas
Sun Semisextile Pluto
With the Sun in Semisextile to Pluto you have a deep-seated urge to investigate and understand
life's mysteries. This may take you into experiences and studies that are considered esoteric but
this aspect does not incline to obsession so you are not likely to be completely overwhelmed by
such interests.

Being aware of the need for periodic change within yourself, there will be periods in your life
when an old way of being seems to undergo upheaval. Despite the emotional pain and
uncertainties that such changes may bring, you will generally be able to maintain a philosophical
attitude, since you are deeply aware that whatever happens is necessary in the long run for your
future development and growth.

Life Destiny for Angela Merkel

s
Moon
In the birth chart, the Moon is second in importance only to the Sun. Unlike the other planets the
Moon orbits the earth, and seen from the earth is the same size as the Sun (hence the possibility
of total eclipses). The Moon gives off no light of its own, however, but reflects and polarises the
light of the Sun.

The Moon represents memories, feelings and instinctive responses that lie just below the level of
consciousness. As the Moon orbits the earth, it generates the movements of the tides and
governs other natural cycles, such as the menstrual cycle in women. The Moon therefore
symbolises the ebb and flow of feeling and emotion (symbolised by water in Astrology), and the
feminine principle in nature and in the individual.

The sign position of and aspects to the Moon show how we react instinctively, and what we need
to feel comfortable and secure. As children the Moon is the Mother, or at least how we
experienced our mother. As we grow older this extends to our relationships with women in
general (particularly for men), and our instinctive or conditioned responses to the world in
general; based on the often unconscious memories of this early nurturing experience (or lack of
it).

When the time of birth is not known the exact position of the Moon may be different to that
shown in your Midday birth chart. You can experiment with alternative birth times to see if the
Moon's sign changes on the day you were born and read the different interpretations for each
Moon sign.

s in -
Moon in Aquarius
With the Moon in the fixed air sign of Aquarius, there is an instinctive tendency to think about
your feelings, rather than acting on them, or actually feeling them. There is a mixture of
openness to the new, combined with a stubborn resistance to change. You value personal
freedom and independence, in fact you need it to feel comfortable, but this can lead to problems
in your emotional life, that you can probably all too easily dismiss. You prefer not to dwell on past
emotional difficulties or conflicts, preferring to be open to future possibilities, but your emotions
do not always obey your thoughts. The unconventionality and eccentricity associated with this
sign is softened by the emotional nature of the Moon, and you are generally friendly, with an
innate humanitarianism.

d
Mercury
Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun. Along with Venus it is one of the inferior planets, that is,
its orbit lies within the earth's orbit.

In mythology, Mercury is the messenger of the gods. In the birth chart, Mercury represents the
urge to communicate with and exchange information with others. In the mind, it represents our
rational thought processes, or the ability to analyse and reach logical conclusions. In the body, it
is the nervous system, which co-ordinates and unifies all the different bodily functions into an
organised whole. Mercury can be said to represent electricity in the form of information. Mercury
therefore rules all forms of communication and exchange of information, and the ability to
organise facts into a consistent view of the world.

The sign position of and aspects to Mercury in the chart show how one thinks and communicates,
that is, the way in which our thoughts are expressed, and the way in which we receive such
information from the world around us.

10
Life Destiny for Angela Merkel

d in 4
Mercury in Cancer
With Mercury in the cardinal water sign of Cancer your mind is intuitive and receptive. You may
have an innate psychic receptivity which comes from the ability to pick up on the subtle
communications that people give out, often without them being fully conscious of it themselves.
You may tend to think too much about your own feelings, constantly questioning how and why
you feel the way you do. At best, this can give an unusually deep understanding of your own
unconscious and emotional needs, at worst, your rational understanding can be overwhelmed by
negative emotions. You will make a good listener, able to express sympathy and to understand
the problems of others, as well as verbalise and communicate your understanding and insight.

d q h aaaas
Mercury Conjunct Jupiter
It is said that the Conjunction between Mercury and Jupiter can produce an above average
intelligence. You may find you have an insatiable desire to increase your knowledge, both about
yourself and the world around you. This need will continue throughout your life, and you will
never really feel that you have learned all you can, as each new piece of knowledge will open up
new questions to which you will need to find the answers.

You do possess the ability to become an expert in whatever field you choose, the only problem
being that because of your wide range of interests, you may occasionally find it difficult to confine
yourself to a limited field of study or activity for long - in fact it would probably not be a good
idea to try!

That is because your breadth of knowledge and learning would actually enable you to work in
several fields with equal ability, concentrating on one or the other as you need to. Also, whilst
you are generally more aware and knowledgeable than many of the people around you, you do
not carry an air of intellectual arrogance - enabling people from all walks of life to relate to your
viewpoints.

d e j assss
Mercury Trine Saturn
The Trine between Mercury and Saturn indicates that your mind is generally practical and
organised. As a result, you are able to set yourself realistic goals, which you can then work
towards with persistence and determination.

You also have the ability to apply your mind to disciplined study, often bringing your own creative
interpretation to whatever subject you are interested in. You do not voice your opinions unless
you are sure of your ground, but when you do, you are able to make constructive use of every
piece of relevant information that you possess, and to communicate clearly and authoritatively.

11
Life Destiny for Angela Merkel

d i ; aaaas
Mercury Semisquare Pluto
The Semisquare between Mercury and Pluto indicates that your thoughts are often influenced by
powerful feelings and emotions, probably resulting from past painful emotional experiences.

However, whilst you undoubtedly also have a powerful intellect, you may not always be able to
use it to the full until you have brought to consciousness and come to terms with whatever is
undermining your confidence and faith in your own abilities. You may also occasionally be prone
to misunderstandings with others, as at times you may not be able to articulate your inner
thoughts and feelings.

Nevertheless, you are fiercely resistant of any attempt to influence your way of thinking. You
insist on the right to think your own thoughts and reach your own conclusions. This is not always
a bad thing, but sometimes it is necessary to realise that we cannot be right all the time, and be
prepared to listen to others who have had a greater experience and understanding of life than
ourselves.

f
Venus
Venus, like Mercury, lies within the orbit of the earth. If Mercury can be likened to electricity in
the form of information, then Venus can be likened to the magnetic field generated by the electric
current. One of the meanings of Venus is therefore "personal magnetism".

In mythology Venus is the goddess of love. In the birth chart, Venus represents the social and
love urge, and the need for harmony and exchange of feelings and affection with others. Venus is
our need to form relationships and our power to attract such relationships. It is also our sense of
values, based on what attracts or repels us.

The sign position of any aspect to Venus shows how we express these needs to others and the
kind of response we need in order to feel in harmony. If Venus is adversely placed these
responses may not always be what we consciously desire but are often necessary in order to
force us to recognise some unexpressed part of ourselves.

f in 6
Venus in Virgo
Venus, the planet of relationship and affection, is in the mutable earth sign of Virgo in your chart.
You will have a tendency to over analyse your feelings in your relationships, rather than simply
experience the person and your feelings for them, you will need to understand the 'why and
wherefore', and the conscious and unconscious motivations behind the relationship. You could
become very critical of the other person when your analysis reveals that they are not the perfect,
pure being that you want them to be. Publicly, you will express a rather cool, perhaps even
puritanical, approach to others, but when you feel safe, and in private, you can be as passionate
as the next person. You express your affection easiest by taking care of someone's physical
needs, making sure they are comfortable, well fed, and relaxed, and you will tend to seek these
same qualities in a partner.

12
Life Destiny for Angela Merkel

f e g assss
Venus Trine Mars
The Trine between Venus and Mars indicates that you are a sociable and warm-hearted person.
Always ready to give others the benefit of the doubt, you can't hold a grudge for too long. You
enjoy being sociable and having a good time with friends, and you are able to mix easily in any
social situation. You look for the best in people, and can bring the best out in others.

However, this apparently easy-going nature may tempt some people to take advantage of you,
thinking you will allow them to get away with it. But if others overstep the bounds of your
tolerance and understanding you will not be afraid to put them straight in no uncertain terms.

f y j aaass
Venus Sextile Saturn
The Sextile between Venus and Saturn indicates a rather conservative approach to relationships.
Happiness in relationships will eventually come when you have learned to deal with the fear of
rejection, probably stemming from childhood experiences. Take care not to get involved in a
relationship for purely material ends, or for the security or position that it provides as it will not
necessarily lead to the happiness you are trying to create.

This is a good aspect for the business person as you are able to deal effectively with the world,
but do beware of becoming a workaholic in order to compensate for a sense of emotional
isolation.

f q ; assss
Venus Conjunct Pluto
The Conjunction between Venus and Pluto indicates an emotional intensity in your approach to
relationships that can be all-consuming. Through relationships you can fall to the depths of
despair or reach the heights of emotional ecstasy. You will be attracted to powerful, charismatic
people.

However, this kind of intensity can become rather exhausting, and when the passions cool,
possessiveness, jealousy and the desire to dominate can take over.

g
Mars
Mars is the first planet in the series out from the Sun that is outside the orbit of the earth. As the
first superior planet, Mars represents energy directed outward from the self into the world. It is
the energy to initiate action and the ability to meet challenges and overcome obstacles. In
mythology, Mars is the god of war. In the birth chart, Mars is the self assertive and aggressive
urge, the sex drive and the need to achieve our desires. Positively, Mars is expressed as courage,
initiative, and the will-power to pursue our goals. Negatively expressed, Mars is impatience,
violence and the use of force or threats.

The sign position of and aspects to Mars in the chart show how we assert ourselves and express
our desires. Mars is traditionally a masculine planet, and therefore represents the expression of
the male ego. In a woman's chart, the energy of Mars is often repressed by social and family
conditioning, and indicates how she will experience the male ego through the men around her,
whether positively or negatively expressed. It is, however, becoming increasingly possible for
women to break away from traditional passive roles, and express their own Martian drives, but
this is often not completely successful until after the age of about 30.

13
Life Destiny for Angela Merkel

g in 9
Mars in Sagittarius
With Mars in the mutable fire sign Sagittarius, the energy to achieve your goals and enthusiasm
for them are inseparably linked. Once you have decided on a course of action you will go for it
directly, without too much beating about the bush, but if the enthusiasm wanes so will the
energy. Your sexual and aggressive drives will be moderated by certain moral or ethical ideals,
but within these limitations you will tend to be rather frank and direct. There is a danger of
overextending yourself, or trying to achieve more than you are capable of handling, and you may
have to control a tendency to exaggerate.

g y l assss
Mars Sextile Neptune
With Mars in Sextile to Neptune you will understand the difference between passion and
compassion. You realise there are times when you can assert yourself to satisfy your own
desires, but that at other times you must yield to someone else's needs and feelings. In other
words, you are prepared to help others when they can't help themselves.

g e ; aaaas
Mars Trine Pluto
Mars and Pluto in Trine aspect provides the power that enables you to draw on deep reserves of
energy to get through any crisis. Your physical drives and desires are strong and intense, but
controlled and purposeful.

You have the ability to act quickly in any emergency, and to make far-reaching decisions and
commitments that others may require a long time to consider. When necessary, you can also be
quite fearless in defending your own rights and those of others.

h
Jupiter
The planets up to and including Mars have been concerned with the establishment of ourselves as
individuals, and with the satisfaction of our own needs and desires. The planets beyond Mars
connect us with a larger order.

As the largest planet in the solar system, Jupiter represents expansion and growth. It is the urge
to grow beyond our individual limitations and the need to feel part of a larger order, whether this
be a particular religion, philosophy or social system. Jupiter, the king of the gods, traditionally
bestows faith, optimism and the ability to expand and prosper. It is the planet that promotes
personal growth, gives us confidence in ourselves and trust in a higher power or greater plan.
Negatively, Jupiter can manifest as overconfidence, irresponsibility and the tendency to over-
extend ourselves or promise too much.

The sign position of and aspects to Jupiter in the chart show what kinds of experiences and types
of activity create an inner faith and optimism, and the sense of being connected to the larger
scheme of things.

14

Jupiter in Cancer
Jupiter is in the cardinal water sign of Cancer in your chart. The urge for expansion and growth
and the feeling of an inner faith in yourself and life in general operates on the feeling and
emotional level. You will have a kind and sensitive nature with warm and generous feelings,
however, you tend to keep things beneath the surface, covered by an apparently hard shell, so
these qualities may not always be made apparent to others.

Your religious and philosophical beliefs will be shaped by your emotions and based on what you
feel, rather than on any intellectual analysis, but feelings are subject to constant change and
fluctuation, so your beliefs will tend to be inconstant and fluctuate with your feelings. Faith in
yourself and in life will also be subject to fluctuations according to your mood.

Jupiter Trine Saturn
The Trine between Jupiter and Saturn indicates that you are able to work with persistence and
determination toward your goals, adapting your methods and approach in the light of experience.

Whilst you are ambitious and determined, still tend to look on the bright side in the face of
adversity or set-backs. In other words, you are generally capable of maintaining a creative
balance between optimism and realism, always ready to take advantage of good fortune and
opportunity, but also disciplined enough not to overreach yourself, and remain within the bounds
of what is possible and realistic.

Jupiter Conjunct Uranus
The Conjunction between Jupiter and Uranus shows that you look to the future with high
expectations. You have an insatiable need to absorb more knowledge. You are also generally able
to express the knowledge that you have gained in such a way that you can open up the minds of
others to higher goals and ideals.

h r l assss
Jupiter Square Neptune
With the Square between Jupiter and Neptune, you have high ideals, but you may lack the
discipline required to make these ideals a reality in your own life. Understanding and sympathetic
to others, you may at times unknowingly allow others to take advantage of your good nature.

If you can discipline your imaginative mind, perhaps through meditation or self-analysis, you
could gain a great deal more understanding about yourself.

Saturn
Saturn is the last planet in the solar system that can be seen with the naked eye from the earth.
As such, together with the fact that it is bounded by a series of rings, Saturn represents the
boundaries of the individual.

After the limitless expansion of Jupiter, Saturn in the birth chart represents boundaries and
limitations. It is the principle of structure and form. In the body, it is the skeleton, which gives
the body its structure, and the skin, which is the boundary to the outside world. In the mind, it is
the structure of our ego and our sense of self which we seek to preserve from the impact of
changes from within and from the outside world. Saturn gives us the ability to endure setbacks
and work with discipline and patience toward well defined aims. It is the need for social approval
through some kind of tangible achievement. Whereas Jupiter brings rewards and opportunities
through what we might call good luck, Saturn brings rewards and opportunities through hard
work, limitation and self discipline.

The sign position of and aspects to Saturn show how we seek to establish ourselves as individuals
and find our place in the social system of which we are a part. Any form or structure, however,
when placed in the light of the Sun tends to cast a shadow. The position of Saturn in the chart
therefore, shows where we find our "shadow". It is here that we meet with our greatest sense of
inadequacy, lack of faith and inhibitions. Saturn shows where we are most fearful, and hence
most rigid; but if these fears can be met and overcome it is the source of our greatest strength
and a solid foundation from which to meet the world.

j in 8
Saturn in Scorpio
Saturn in the chart indicates where we feel most restricted or rigid, and hence where our greatest
source of doubt and uncertainty lies. In the fixed water sign of Scorpio it is in the area of the
emotional life. You may feel unable to let go and give freely with your emotions, fear of rejection
and or betrayal makes you keep your true feeling under tight control and hidden below a surface
of apparent indifference or detachment. You may even find yourself being accused of having no
feelings, but the truth is the exact opposite, your feelings are deeper and more powerful than
most, and also more sensitive and easy to hurt.

If you are in touch with yourself, you will come to realise that whatever other people do, they
cannot touch your deepest inner core. You have the potential to develop, often after going
through some pain, an unshakeable emotional strength that can carry you through the worst
storms that life can whip up.

j r K assss
Saturn Square Uranus
The Square between Saturn and Uranus indicates an inner conflict between the need to be a free
and the need for security and stability. It may be that early attempts to express yourself as an
individual were somehow suppressed or your need for security and stability was constantly being
shattered by circumstances beyond your control.

You will need to find some way to balance the two conflicting needs of stability and freedom,
perhaps by understanding that the only real stability in this life comes from understanding
ourselves, and the only true freedom comes from being ourselves.

Saturn Conjunct Neptune
Saturn and Neptune are Opposite in nature, Saturn is hard-headed and practical, while Neptune
is idealistic and visionary. With the Conjunction between these two planets you'll need to combine
these two aspects of your personality in some way.

You do have the ability to bring your dreams and aspirations "down to earth", to make a reality
out of your visions, but at times this may take a considerable amount of hard work.

This aspect also suggests talents that can be applied equally successfully to both the arts and the
sciences. In the arts, Saturn can give form and structure to the mystical dreams of Neptune,
perhaps through music or poetry. In the sciences, the discipline and objectivity of Saturn can be
infused with the deeper intuition and insight of Neptune.

You will not be content to accept religious and philosophical teachings at face value. This will
probably, at some point in your life, lead to some confusion about what you really believe.
However, your faith will eventually be rebuilt through your own personal experience.

K
Uranus
Uranus is the first of the trans-Saturnian planets. It cannot be seen with the naked eye and was
discovered in 1781 during the period of the American and French revolutions. Its discovery was
made possible by the invention of the telescope, a development that has led to radical changes in
our knowledge of the universe and our place in it.

In the birth chart then, Uranus represents the force for revolutionary change, the breaking from
tradition, and inventiveness and experimentation. As one of the three planets that cannot be
seen with the unaided eye, Uranus represents a force over which we have little or no conscious
control. On an individual level, Uranus indicates our degree of independence and demand for
personal freedom. If well placed it gives us originality and an ability to attune to truth that goes
beyond the logic of Mercury. If we refuse to express the energy of Uranus within us, preferring to
cling to the traditions and limitations of Saturn, then Uranus may manifest as disruptions and
sudden changes in our immediate environment, sometimes disrupting our lives completely and
forcing us to make needed changes. If the energy of Uranus is expressed negatively, it can lead
to wilfulness, impatience and needless rebellion, the rebel without a cause.

The position of Uranus in the chart shows where we most feel the need for freedom and
independence and the need to experiment with new ideas and ways of living. Conversely, it is the
area where we can cause the most disruption and needless change.

K in 4
Uranus in Cancer
Constant changes, surprises and disruptions surrounding your home life. It may sometimes seem
that no matter how hard you try to settle down, circumstances will seem to do their best to
disrupt your routine. As you need much emotional independence and freedom, perhaps the best
way to deal with this is not to seek security along conventional lines. Security comes with the
freedom to be yourself and allowing others to do the same.

K r l aaaaa
Uranus Square Neptune
This aspect occurs in the charts of most people born between 1950 and 1956 since both planets
move so slowly. You belong to a generation that is rebellious, but is not quite sure of the reason.
You are aware of the suffering in the world and will want to do something about it.

Neptune
After Uranus comes Neptune, the god of the sea. Whereas Uranus is the urge for individual
freedom and independence, Neptune is the urge to escape from our normal sense-bound state of
consciousness, and experience our unity with a different level of reality.

In the birth chart, Neptune represents our higher ideals and our ability to attune to realities that
lie beyond those perceived by the senses. It is the realm of dreams and imagination and our
sense of being part of a whole which is greater than ourselves, the awareness of a spiritual
dimension to existence. Neptune represents the urge to transcend our normal state of
consciousness through meditation and mystical experience, music, dreams and flights of the
imagination, or through drugs (including alcohol) which afford us a temporary escape from the
mundane grind of living. Neptune can be expressed as high ideals, altruism and spiritual values,
or as self destructive escapism and evasion of responsibilities. For most of us it is a mixture of
both.

The position of Neptune in the chart shows where and how we seek to express these needs, and
in what areas of our lives we tend to seek an often impossible ideal.

Neptune in Libra
Born between 1943-1957, the post-war generation. The United Nations was formed in an
endeavour to establish and maintain peace throughout the world. This was also the time of the
unworldly idealism of the hippie generation. They wanted love and peace, but many just found
drugs instead. Escapism and opting out of society became a way of life, and still is for many
individuals born in this generation.

Neptune Sextile Pluto
This aspect between the two outermost planets first occurred in 1942 and will remain in effect for
the next hundred years, although the sign positions of the planets will change, so everyone born
during this time will have it in their charts. This contact will therefore affect everyone for the next
hundred years and represents changes taking place in the world's collective psyche. The keynote
of this entire period will be the complete transformation of our existing scientific, religious and
political belief systems.

Pluto
Pluto is the outermost planet in the solar system and therefore the slowest moving. At certain
times however, due to the high eccentricity of its orbit, it comes closer to the earth than
Neptune. This was so from 1984 -1999. At that same time it passed through Scorpio, the sign
that it rules. This was a very critical period in world history, since Pluto represents powerful
forces of death and destruction or change and transformation, which were at their strongest. This
could have lead to destruction through nuclear war or our pollution and exploitation of our planet
or to the death of the current political and economical systems and the birth of new political and
economic systems, together with a transformation in international relations as well as our
relationship to our planet. When Pluto left Scorpio in 1999 all these issues were much altered.

In the individual birth chart, Pluto represents the urge for power and control either over ourselves
or others. It is the need to penetrate beneath the surface of experience, to reveal hidden
motivations and repressed desires. The position of Pluto in the chart indicates our capacity for
self-regeneration or rebirth and our attitude towards beginnings and endings and birth and death,
either actual or symbolic. Pluto can be expressed as the acceptance of our need for complete
transformation in some area of our life, and the courage to face our deepest compulsions and
hang-ups. Or, it can be expressed as the wilful manipulation of others, ruthlessness and an
infatuation with power.

Pluto in Leo
Pluto was in Leo between 1939-1957. You were born at a time when many new countries and
nations, and leaders, were created out of previous European empires. This period also marked
the beginning of the Second World War and the first destructive use of atomic energy.
