Planetary Positions, Aspects, and Orbs
Chapter 1: The Moon
The placement of the Moon in your birth chart is very significant from a karmic perspective, as it indicates the accumulated karmic tendencies, both positive and negative, that you carry from your past incarnated experiences on earth.
While the Sun reveals your intended purposes and lessons for this present life cycle, the MOON represents what you have already done and developed, hence, Elizabeth, what is instinctive and natural to you, and what you tend to do over and over again. Your childhood is also reflected in the Moon's placement, as it is through those childhood circumstances that any unresolved past-life issues are re-stimulated. Your subconscious predisposition is indicated by the Moon's position. It is the psychic imprint of the past. The nodes of the Moon describe behavior patterns from the past, as well as delineating a direction out of outworn or overdone behaviors and habits.
Moon in Scorpio:
In your incarnational past you developed an acute psychic sensitivity, a sort of psychic x-ray vision that enables you to read the hidden agendas and the unspoken (often unconscious) messages that other people put out. Your ability to intuit another's motives and unexpressed feelings may make some people wary or uncomfortable around you. It is as if they sense that you know more about them than they know themselves, especially about those aspects of themselves they would rather not face or have other people see. In the past, Elizabeth, your penetrating insight into human nature, your capacity to deeply "know" a person emphatically, and your attunement to the dark or hidden under currents in a person or situation may have gained you the reputation of being a "witch". You may well have used your deeper knowledge to gain power over or manipulate people in subtle ways. Certainly you had the capacity to. You may also have endured much ridicule whenever you openly expressed your feelings and your awareneses. As a result, you learned to be very secretive and private and to protect yourself from trying eyes. Even today, you can be very asocial and you hide quite a bit of yourself from public view, retreating into seclusion whenever you feel threatened. At a deep level, you may believe that you must hide in order to survive, and thus allowing yourself to come out into the open, or to let people in, may be very difficult for you.
Early experiences in this life, or in past lifetimes, have conditioned you to be less than trusting. Your lovers and close friends may feel you are unjustifiably fearful, even a bit paranoid. The truth is, you have experienced first-hand the nastier side of human nature. You thus tend to throw up smoke screens between yourself and those who would know your at more than a superficial level, and once you do allow someone to know you well, fears of loss, betrayal, or abandonment usually surface rapidly. Nevertheless, Elizabeth, your capacity for and your need for deep intimacy and emotional closeness in your relationships is greater than most. You seek intensity in your relationships and can not be satisfied with "luke warm". You run hot and cold, and are prone to be compulsive or obsessed with the people or issues you care about. At your worst, you are unbearably possessive and controlling, driven by your craving for closeness and also your underlying memories of being betrayed. Jealousy may be your greatest nemesis. Secretary nursing grudges, resentment, ad grievances over things that happened long ago may also be a bad habit of yours, one you will need to overcome if you are not to be poisoned by your own negativity.
It is important that you do not deny or repress such feelings, either, as that will only fuel them. However, if you can acknowledge and share them - and the let them go, you can free yourself of a lot of old, excess "baggage". you are also prone to strong feelings of guilt, often for no known cause that you can consciously relate them to. This may stem from three sources: 1)Being punished or shamed as a child for your very strong feelings, especially the "not-nice" ones, 2) your own instinctive awareness of the "shadowy" side of your own nature and 3) deep memories of your own misuse of misdirection of power.
At your best, Elizabeth, you are passionate, creative, caring, deep, and wise in an instinctive way. In this lifetime you could be a particularly insightful psychologist or counselor, the one people will divulge their darkest secrets to. By confronting your own negativity and pain, and learning to release it, you are able to shed some light for others who struggle with the same.
North Node in Pisces:
In your incarnational past, you relied upon your rational, analytical, and intellectual skills. Your growth direction now is to open more to the non-rational or transcendental aspect of life, Elizabeth, and to further your understanding through compassion, empathy, and intuition.
North Node in 6th house:
You may be vague about or unconscious of how your past tendency operates in your life. It may work against you without your knowing it. Apply your new attitude or growth direction in matters of health, illness, or self-improvement in order to overcome the effects of your past.

Chapter 2: The Sun
The Sun in your birth chart represents the primary creative thrust for this lifetime, those qualities you are to develop (or further develop) and express, and your current life focus. This may be in harmony with your instincts and your emotional habits, Elizabeth, or along completely different lines. The Sun represents your conscious identity in this lifetime.
Sun in Pisces:
The flowering of compassion, through your ability to merge on a feeling level and to empathize with all, is a key theme for you in this lifetime. This propensity to share others' emotional experience has both its blessings and its deficits. At your finest, Elizabeth, you have a deeply-felt understanding of human nature which goes beyond words or intellect, and which enables you to forgive others' misdeeds and make allowances for their weaknesses. You are acutely aware of others' pain, including the emotional wounds and brokenness they carry within, and your ability to listen with an understanding heart and to unconditionally accept people as they are can be a healing influence in their lives. You are inclined to exclude nobody. At a deep level you feel and know your oneness with all creatures, and thus every snail in the garden or stray cat is part of your "heart's family".
However, this same all-embracing emotional/psychic openness and receptivity can be the source of some of your greatest challenges in life. It is easy for you to become overwhelmed by the world and its sorrows, and to seek some form of escape from it and from your own extreme sensitivity; for instance, over using drugs or alcohol or even food to alter your mood, or retreating from life into the unreal world of television or other diversions. You may simply withdrawing into your own private fantasies to avoid confronting the challenges in the physical world. At its worst this tendency can devolve into evasiveness and playing ostrich "about important issues in your life". While your imagination and your sensitivity are the well spring of some of your richest experiences and gifts, if over indulged you may become passive, ineffectual, lost or confused. Especially when young, Elizabeth, you may lack a strong sense of self, of definition and identity, because on a feeling level you identify with others so easily. It can be difficult for you to separate yourself, to know what your boundaries are, when to say no or how to stand up for your own personal interests. Since you are not narrowly focused on self, others may take advantage of your natural generosity and sympathy. Learning and incorporating the concepts of discrimination and clear judgment will enable you to give of yourself in ways that are healthy for you and the ones you are giving to.
Part of your soul development in this lifetime also has to do with taking what others discard fixing, saving, or redeeming it in some way. This could take many forms, from repairing and recycling old "junk", to working with people who are disadvantaged, such as, the misfits, outcasts, sick, weak, poor, or handicapped in our society This urge to fix what is broken, to heal and to make whole again has, once again, a light and a dark side to it - the dark side being that you could easily become a martyr, sacrificing yourself for the supposed benefit of another while drawing in trouble yourself. However, Elizabeth, if you learn self-responsibility, your gift for healing or putting things back together again can be fulfilling to you as well as benefit many others.
At times you may feel that you do not really belong in this world, for you are so attuned to the nonphysical, intangible world of feeling and of the soul. An underlying sense of "cosmic homesickness" and a yearning for the peace and completion of the beyond may be ever present with you.
However, attuning to this inner or transpersonal realm, and bringing back its gifts to share in this one, is really your challenge. Music or art may be your vehicle. You could develop your psychic sensitivity in order to help guide and teach others, Elizabeth, or simply live your life in a way that expresses and honors your larger vision and your compassion. (This can lead you to becoming lackadaisical, wasteful, or out of touch with the material world).
Sun Opposition Neptune:
A high degree of spiritual perceptiveness and psychic sensitivity opens you to the intangible side of life. You may possess some unusual gifts, Elizabeth, such as, the ability to see auras or to "read" people intuitively, clairvoyantly, or the ability to channel healing energy, or a prodigious musical or artistic talent. Your imagination and capacity to create from images in your fantasies or dreams is one aspect of your giftedness. An awakened sense of unity with all other living things also engenders within you much compassion, gentleness and a desire to help or "save" them. Part of your soul mission is the further development and refinement of these gifts.
However, such sensitivity and openness is not without potential problems. Being aware (however subtly) of the vastness of life and of the spiritual dimension may lead you to abdicate personal responsibility for directing your own course in life ("let God do it", or "It's my fate"). Escapism, evasiveness and passivity in the face of challenges from the outside world are negative potentials. You can be too yielding, too gentle. Your assessment of yourself may also be unclear and less than accurate. Quite often you underestimate your own power to determine your life and your own abilities in other areas. When out of balance, Elizabeth, you tend to glamorize or overidealize yourself or others, to get caught up in some fantasy (without distinguishing between truth and fiction), to neglect your emotional and/or physical self for the sake of some dream or spiritual ideal, or to be naive and gullible and easily manipulated. There is some indication that a misunderstanding or mis-direction of spiritual energies in your incarnational past needs to be addressed and balanced out in your present cycle. It is especially important for you to be thoroughly grounded in the physical world, and especially to avoid mind or mood altering substances which could serve to distort your perceptions, confuse or destabilize you. Incorporating a regular, rhythmic pattern and some form of self discipline in your life will also enable you to use your imaginative and spiritual gifts to the fullest. Above all, Elizabeth, rigorous honesty with the self is required. It can also be helpful to get feedback and assistance from people who are mature, well-grounded, practical and effective in the world.
Sun conjunct Mercury in Pisces:
Your ability to blend your intellect and reasoning power with your intuition enables you to instinctively understand other people and their life situations, Elizabeth, and you have a gift for drawing them out, eliciting and listening to their stories, even though you yourself maybe shy. You could be a great story-teller, as you possess a keen eye and ear for the poetic, literary and artistic. You will be happiest when you are using some blending of mind and emotions, or thought and instinct, in a creative way. The use of your hands to fashion, fix or create things is very satisfying also.

Chapter 3: Rising Sign
Your soul function involves establishing balance and harmony in your world, and an awareness of beauty, of relationship, of style, and how things fit or blend together. Reconciling opposites, Elizabeth, and finding "the middle way" is your path, and the fine arts of compromise, negotiations and cooperation are key elements. You are the dove, the diplomat, the peacemaker, the friend; partnership and personal relations are your forte.
Libra Rising and Venus in Aries:
Your ruling planet, Venus, is in the fiery and self-assertive sign of Aries, however, suggesting that direct confrontation and even conflict (when necessary) is how you seek to create harmony and relationship. While appearing to oblige or give in, Elizabeth, you nevertheless arm to fulfill your own intentions. You are learning about the true nature of love, of giving and receiving, and about personal integrity and honesty in the context of intimate relationships.

Chapter 4: Saturn, Your Achilles Heel
Karmically considered, the placement of Saturn in your birth chart indicates where your energetic blockages, weaknesses and fears lie, and the areas of your life where the most concentrated effort and discipline will be required to master and overcome them. Yet it also points to the aspects of life which can become your greatest strength if you are willing to face your fears and difficulties honestly, Elizabeth, and work with them patiently.
Saturn in Aquarius
Your particular struggle has two faces. First, you can feel alienated from the mainstream of society, unable to comfortably be a part of things or to participate socially, disaffected and oppressed by society's rules or the prevailing order of things in the world. A harsh social critic, you may feel like the lone-wolf, both longing for and refusing acceptance, inclusion and approval from "the group". Your innate distrust of groups or crowds may prevent you from joining in activities you would actually enjoy. Depending on other factors in your chart, Elizabeth, you are apt to feel either painfully isolated, or simply aloof. You have an acute social conscience and are prone to feel personally guilty for the collective's mistakes, or to try to instill guilt in others for the same. One negative tendency you also have is to blame all of your own problems on the ills of society, the corruption in the government, "Big Brother", etc. You tend to focus on the gloomiest aspect of the world scene, and to fear the worst.
The other side of the coin is a tendency to stifle your uniqueness in order to fit in. Being acceptable and conforming may become overly important to you, Elizabeth, so much so that you intensely dislike anyone who deviates from convention or is "weird" in any way. If you find that this is the case, know that you are actually fighting an aspect of your own inner self. You could also become a "joiner", overly identified with social causes to the neglect or determent of your other personal interests or relations.
Saturn in 4th house:
Your roots, background, origins, early home life and/or relationships with your parents is the arena where you most likely have been frustrated or suffered a lack of support (physical or emotional). Basic insecurities stemming from the legacy of your childhood need to be addressed and healed. Being neglected, deprived or burdened with responsibilities beyond a child's capacity may have robbed you of the sense of security a child derives from being taken care of. Quite possibly you were forced into fending for yourself earlier than you are developmentally ready for. Thus, Elizabeth, as an adult you need to concentrate on building a solid inner base of security within yourself. One of the blessings here is that through this process you have the opportunity to find your "true home", a place within you that is the source of real security and nourishment. On an external level, owning your own home or property, an developing it over time, can be a way to help this process along.
You have a tendency to isolate yourself and become a hermit, and at certain periods in your life this is necessary and good, or you develop the strength and self-esteem which were not nurtured in your beginnings. However, Elizabeth, you should beware of closing people out entirely, and of rejecting intimacy, family ties or deep emotional investment.

Chapter 5: The Hard Aspects
Mercury Opposition Neptune:
Part of your purpose and challenge in life is to translate your particular vision and subtle sensitivity in to some form that speaks to others. You are attuned to the muse, Elizabeth, whether you are a musician, poet, artist, spiritual seeker or a psychically gifted counselor. Your mind does not function in a strictly logical, linear way and you may have difficulty ordering your life, understanding boundaries, or functioning in a defined and reliable way.
Your mind functions primarily in the world of images which can be either a rich source of creativity or a confusing maze of self-created fantasies. Learning to differentiate between dream and reality is imperative. Mental clarity and self-discipline, by strict avoidance of mind-altering substances, honesty with self and others, and seeking feedback from an objective person when you are feeling fuzzy or confused, is necessary in order to make the most of your gifts.
The phenomena of "channeling" is one you are very open to at your finest, Elizabeth, you will feel yourself to be a channel or conduit for "magic" to happen, artistically or otherwise.
Venus SemiSquare Mars:
In this lifetime the erotic impulses of human love, desire and sexual relationships are a highly charged focus of your attention. Expressing your sexual energies and personal magnetic attractiveness in ways that are loving and respectful or at least not harmful to yourself and others will be one of your issues. Dominating others through your sexuality, or allowing yourself to be dominated in this way is also a theme. Dissonance or turbulence in intimate relationships, especially over differences in sexual drives, or needs, must be handled with care. Expressing your passion in ways that are compatible with your own values and sense of beauty is the key here.
On another level, Elizabeth, balancing and integrating masculine and feminine energies within yourself is the challenge. Carrying or wearing watermelon tourmaline can be quite useful along these lines.
Venus Conjunct Uranus:
Both in your personal relationships and in your personal tastes, you will feel an attraction to wildness, rebelliousness, newness and erratic rhythms. "Alternative" life styles or love styles, with an emphasis on a strong need to be free, to experiment and to be spontaneous, appeal to you. Even if, at a conscious level, you believe you want stable and "normal" relationships, you will be drawn to people who are inconstant, creatively unwilling to make a commitment. You, on the other hand, Elizabeth, may be the adventurous, noncommittal one, or find yourself sabotaging a relationship once it becomes steady and reliable. In some part of your life you must feel free to experiment emotionally and creatively. Dancing or music or some other free-flowing art form could be an outlet for this. Keeping love alive, fresh and surprising is an ongoing life challenge for you.
There may well be a number of unions and separations, unexpected disruptions in intimate relationships, and/or periods of relatively little deep intimacy in your life; the karmic purpose of which is for you to be able to develop independence, autonomy and detachment from an overdependence upon relationships. However, Elizabeth, you must beware of behaving selfishly, insensitively, impersonally and coldly in your pursuit of personal freedom.
Venus Square Pluto:
The realm of human love and human relating is not one you can enter into lightly or casually. For you, Elizabeth, it is always an all-or-nothing, whole-hearted and ultimately transformative experience. Great joy and tremendous pain, intense desire and longings, betrayals are part of your soul's path and pattern in this lifetime. A deepening of your heart and your capacity to love, as well as a purification of your values is what this is all about. It may be the loss of one particular person in a particularly poignant and excruciating way, or a series of encounters which bring you ever deeper into your own attachments. Even abusive relationships may be the arenas in which this occurs. Ultimately, Elizabeth, it is the power of love, to heal, to renew and resurrect your own and others' lives which you are meant to discover.
The darker side or temptation on this path is to use love (or attractiveness, and other's love for you) to control, manipulate or force your will upon them. A love of power -instead of the power of love - would then be your downfall.
Mars SemiSquare Uranus:
You are like a very high-spirited, temperamental horse, full of great energy and drive, but also impulsive, erratic, fitful and prone to sudden starts and stops. Also there is within you a fierce independence, Elizabeth, a strong craving for freedom and at times a fiery rebelliousness. If you have free rein, you can be relatively happy, though not ever completely "settled" or contentedly serene for long. Under conditions that are too structured and constricted, however, you are more apt to blow up.
When out of balance you are prone to express yourself in ways that can have negative karmic consequences, such as; irritable impatience and a volatile, unpredictable temper (which can affect your health as well as damage the trust and quality of your relationships), intense restlessness (resulting in an inability to persist with a project long enough to see it through to completion) a complete unwillingness to cooperate or compromise (which also can undermine relationships, particularly with authority), physical recklessness (which an lead to accidents), and/or the inclination to ignite controversy and unrest in your environment. Because of your high (if somewhat unstable) energy level you are apt to forge ahead, oblivious to the fact that you are running right over the people around you. You may believe you are your own law, or are above the law. Too much attachment to action and to being right are also potentials within you.
Learning to slow down, Elizabeth, developing patience and the capacity to wait and cultivating a more steady, peaceful spirit will enable you to express the higher creativity, originality and inspired passion you are capable of.
Mars Opposition Neptune:
Your masculine, yang, assertive energies combine (somewhat tensely and uneasily) with your urge for transcendence, grandeur and a life beyond the every day or material. This could be expressed through you in various ways. At best you are an inspired creative genius with the drive and need to physically manifest your dreams and visions. (This may nevertheless, be hard on those around you or the part of you that wants a normal, orderly existence, as you tend to become fanatical and to ignore the more mundane stuff).
You may have a great deal of fantasy about and infatuation with masculinity, male power, which can lead to feelings of personal inadequacy, sexual confusion, an over identification with macho strengths and values, muscles, competing or simply an unclear relationship with men. You may idealize the man (father, husband, son) and fail to perceive them accurately. You tend to go to extreme, Elizabeth, either denying all male attribute, functions or values, or secretly worshipping them.
You may also have great aspirations and far reaching ambitions which may or may not be practically realizable. However, for you, to live is to dream. Strive for complete honesty, with yourself as well as others, because the downside of this pattern is a tendency to evade or deceive or simply ignore what is. Avoid, also, the tendency to use either your physical strength or your sexual power and charisma in an exaggerated way. Misdirection of these energies can weaken your vitality considerably.
Ultimately you may be lead to devote your strength and all your actions to something that transcends personal gratification and personal desire, Elizabeth, becoming a channel for a higher power to work through.
Jupiter is Retrograde:
Moral concerns (including lingering unresolved issues stemming from a prior lifetime or lifetimes in which you exercised poor judgment in moral, ethical or religious matters) come into play here. Thus, it is especially important for you to maintain high standards while pursuing your aspirations.
Uranus Square Pluto:
You and many of your generation have a group karma that involves planetary change and awakening through upheaval and disruption, Elizabeth. Turbulent forces in the collective mind/body/soul of your group may be expressed as violence, extreme opposition to real or perceived oppression, radical severance from all old conditioning. There is a powerful urge for change and revolution in this pattern. Becoming a positive agent of change rather than a negative reactionary or extremist is your challenge.
Neptune is Retrograde:
The above is complicated by the fact that you had a prior lifetime or lifetimes in which you dissipated your energy, fell away from your disciplines, or were to passive or irresolute to go after the spiritual opportunities open to you at that time. This carries over as a vague yet persistent inner nagging that you should be further on than you are, Elizabeth, or a fear of spiritual failure. You may also have been involved in mystical or magical practices that created distortions in your life. It is important for you to take a balanced, patient, well-grounded attitude toward life - nothing too otherworldly, ethereal, or glamourous. Indulging in any mood-altering substances is particularly deleterious for you.
Pluto is Retrograde:
These issues are further complicated by the fact that in a prior life or lives you experienced a terrible betrayal, Elizabeth, and may even have been tortured or put to death, when you claimed power (social, political or spiritual). You may have misused power or employed Machiavellian strategies in which many suffered. Whether you were a perpetrator or a victim of such abuses, deep fears were engendered at that time, of being powerful, or of people in power who would crush you if you display your strengths. An unconscious desire for revenge may motivate you, and prevent you from healing. Letting go of this may require deep inner work and some kind of therapeutic energetic release of the grief you hold.

Chapter 6: Soft Aspects
The following is a description of your GIFTS and STRENGTHS which can help you as you work with your major life challenges. These are abilities and qualities of heart, mind and soul which are quite natural to you. You probably take them for granted. Because these represent the lines of least resistance for you, Elizabeth, you may rely too much upon them at times; hence, there are some cautions suggested. Still, these are the areas where good flows into your life and/or where you have considerable inner resources.
Venus Trine Jupiter:
In your incarnational past you have enjoyed ease and wealth, and have thus developed a taste for "the finer things", and a certain level of comfort and material well-being. You expect to be well provided for, Elizabeth, and will attract prosperity quite easily. However, you may also take much for granted, or be disinclined to put yourself out very much. If you can avoid the "spoiled prince" or "spoiled princess" attitude, your more golden qualities will help you create a satisfying life for yourself. These personal attributes include generosity, friendliness, givingness, tolerance and the ability to make others feel comfortable, accepted and good about themselves. Humor and a light touch are also among your gifts.
An appreciation for beauty and culture is well developed in you also; and you could be a sponsor and supporter of the arts in your community.
Jupiter Trine Uranus:
Through your openness, optimism, enthusiasm for adventure or new ideas, and your willingness to go out on a limb and do something unusual or risky, blessings flow into your life. In your willingness to follow your inspiration, to pay attention to uncanny coincidences and synchronistic events, you attune to a higher order and magnetize good fortune. You also have a fortunate sense of timing, Elizabeth, and what others may see as your "good luck" is at least partly your knowing when to say yes to an opportunity. In fact, your positive expectations help create such opportunities. Sharing joy, fun, laughter and playfulness is also one of the ways you give birth to the new in your life. Discovery and benefits through travel is also indicated.
