Introduction to the Astrology of John Lennon

*Please note, reports are generated in second person.

Your natal horoscope, or birth chart, is a snapshot of the heavens at the moment you were born. It shows what the sky actually looked like at the time and place of your birth. Astrology in modern times has renewed the ancient discovery that the symbolism of the planets that surrounded you at birth describes your character and personality. Planets that were directly overhead at the time and place of your birth are most important, and would appear at the very top of the chart or the Midheaven. Planets that were just rising above the horizon in the East at the time of your birth would appear near the horizontal line at the left hand side of the chart or the Ascendant. If the Sun appears in the top half of the chart, then you were born during daylight hours and have a more outer directed personality. All of these features reflect the factors at play in the Universe at the moment of your birth and are significant indications of the basic qualities and tendencies that continue to make up your personality.  

Each planet's relative position in the sky and significant angles that it makes to the other planets, or aspects, are examined in this report. Please keep in mind that you are not limited by these descriptions. Your natal horoscope does not prescribe your fate. The stars incline, they do not compel. Your birth chart shows potentials that you can either struggle to fulfill or deny. The choice is yours. Beneficial aspects, or planetary positions, are areas of life in which you show natural talent and achieve easy success. Challenging aspects, or planetary positions, can become your greatest asset if you can learn to be aware of how that dynamic plays out in your life and the world at large. The strongest and most important features of your chart are described first. For definitions of astrological terms, please refer to the glossary at the end of this report.

Chart Patterns


You have the planetary pattern known as the 'tripod' shape. With your planets divided into three distinct groups, your personality tends to exhibit a considerable degree of self-sufficiency. You have the same characteristics as a Grand Trine personality type. There is a strong astrological element in your chart that is at your disposal, either Fire, Earth, Air or Water, depending on the element where your planets are concentrated.  

Grand Trine  

You have a Grand Trine in your chart. When three or more of your planets form a Grand Trine with each other, you will have an exceptional area of talent represented by the element in the trine, either Fire, Earth, Air or Water (usually these planets are in just one element). You will display a marked self-sufficiency and also will have good success in your endeavors in this area of life. You must also beware, however, of being lazy or complacent.  

T-Square, focal planet Mercury  

You have a T-Square in your chart. With this planetary aspect pattern, in which three planets or conjunctions are in square with one another, you have a high degree of motivation and drive. Your energies are most easily and habitually expressed by the energy of the focal point, the middle of the T-Square. You may also compensate for overdoing in the area of life represented by the focal point, by leaning toward the empty pattern element opposite the focal point, seeking to balance your activity. The lesson of this planetary aspect pattern is in learning to use your considerable energy wisely in the pursuit of your true goals. There is great tension represented by the focal planet or planets in your chart, where conflicting parts of your personality attain their focus and peak of energy, and you may observe compulsive behavior in the area of life represented here.  

Mercury in Scorpio gives an intense and sharp-tongued personality. Your mental and observational powers are strong and your thoughts run deep. You have a deep-seated urge to communicate and connect with other people, that does not always find its realization. Your will is strong, and you have a passion for discovering the truth behind surface appearances. Your penetrating intellect will plumb the depths of any subject. You may not immediately express your ideas but rather wait until you feel the time is right. Or you may choose to get your point across non-verbally. You can thus appear to be secretive. You may appear to be quiet and almost passive, but you are an acute observer of the world around you. You constantly, and perhaps unconsciously, make judgments about other people and should beware of being overly critical. It benefits you to cultivate a practice of understanding and acceptance.  

Mercury in the Seventh House represents a strong mental connection to other people. You naturally collect and exchange ideas with those you find yourself in partnership with. You are very interested in what other people think about any given situation in which you find yourself. Intellectual expression is for you a very natural medium of relatedness. This awareness of other's points of view can make it difficult for you to come to a decision. When you learn to detach your own ideas from those of other people, you can begin to discover the mysterious balancing act of accepting the differences between self and other.

Important Features

Mars in Libra (2° Lib 40') Mars in the Sixth House  

Mars in the Sixth House (or sign) gives a kind nature, and an energetic worker, with a tendency to be fussy over details. You possess a tremendous desire to be helpful to others, and have a practical and hard-working orientation that assists you in making good on your intentions. You may however need to evolve through getting into conflicts over trifles. At your best, you have a real focus on the simple issues of life, and of the health of the body temple, and just showing up for what comes, day-to-day, that is essentially good natured and constructive rather than ego-oriented. You tend to be somewhat narrow in the application of your effort, and may need to learn to learn to start opening up to the bigger picture. It benefits you to take a more relaxed attitude and a wider and more tolerant worldview, rather than getting hung up on the minutiae of a project.  

Mars in Libra (or the seventh house) gives a sensitive and emotionally impressionable nature with an inclination to get very involved with other people. You are likely to have great charm and poise, and an ongoing attraction to love and romance. You can be a persuasive talker, and enjoy getting your own way, although you also are truly committed to making sure all parties in a dispute receive just and fair treatment, and will go out of your way to make sure that they get it. You are potentially a rash and ardent lover, and you may marry early. You are likely to seek an active partner, one who will match your own fiery independence that is a part of your basic nature you may not always show. You might need to work through quarreling with others as a way of standing up to being overly influenced by them, and benefit from exploring a greater degree of self-reliance. You also may be attracted to the idea of partnerships generally, as a way of life. You profit from cultivating moderation and objectivity in your dealings with others.  

Sun in Libra (16° Lib 16' 04") Sun in the Sixth House  

The Sun represents your will and purpose, your sense of vitality, and your evolving higher Self. In Libra it is Cardinal-Air and rules the kidneys. Your ruling planet is Venus. Libra is the sign of harmony and relationship. The Sun in Libra is at the time of the Equinox, when day equals night, and similarly Libra strives for balance between polarities. Librans are known for their good taste, elegance and charm. You are a seeker of harmony and beauty. Your natural mode of living is in partnership with others. Intimate relationships are quite important to you, as are issues of social justice. You forever hope that all parties in a conflict will be satisfied, and you have a tendency to understand and support both sides of a dispute, which can drive your friends crazy unless they are smart enough to value the mediation you naturally provide. You will go out of your way to avoid a quarrel, and you may have a hard time making a decision. Artistic pursuits of all kinds provide an outlet for your love of beauty. You benefit from strengthening your will to act in favor of your higher purpose, which rather than making any one individual all important, ultimately lies in dedicating yourself to humanity at large.  

The Sun in the Sixth House represents a concentration of one's vital force of improving and organizing more holistic ways to serve self and others. You are drawn to serve others. You consider your work as an important connection with maintaining a relationship with the non-organic realities of this world. You have a finely articulated sense of detail, and you also tend to be quite aware of your own natural boundaries and personal limitations, your flaws and imperfections. You constantly assess your priorities and capabilities and you use discretion in your process of decision-making. You strive for perfection in your health, body and mind. You understand that you must clarify your relationship to that which connects you to reality in a way that corresponds to your highest purpose for yourself, because you intuit that the parts work together to make a whole: the more you perfect the parts, the more harmonious the whole operates both within and without. You can alternate between overachieving due to stressing yourself with too much self-reflected criticism and, on the other hand, giving up altogether when you feel the pressure of limitation holding you back. You benefit when you tune in to your true intentions for yourself at the highest level, and give yourself the freedom to move between the extremes of your inner process in order to be flexible with yourself and with others around you.

Moon in Aquarius (3° Aqu 32' 47") Moon in the Eleventh House  

The Moon in Aquarius gives a socially minded and progressive personality. You are charming and gracious. You can also be somewhat unstable or erratic in your behavior. You are consistently kind to other people, but you may come across as somewhat cold and distant, because you have a mental rather than an emotional nature. You desire to be an active force for good in the world, and are likely to achieve that lofty aim. You have great originality in your thoughts. You could benefit from spending more time with your emotions.  

The Moon in Eleventh House represents emotional sensitivity in social arenas. You seek comfort and security in friends and group associations. You are dynamic in group settings although you do not need to feel like the center of attention. You may be detached and objective in social circumstances because you do not want to commit your allegiance to one group or another. You prefer to have several types of acquaintances in various group settings. You do well as an organizer of group events whether it be a party for friends, group meeting or social event. You have a tendency to overextend yourself and can become divided by being involved in too many group projects at once. You may need to guard against being too naive, friendly and taking too much responsibility for groups. You may do well to focus on reliable friendships and learn discrimination when opening to new activities and associations so that you can manage and coordinate your various interests and activities.  

Uranus in Taurus (25° Tau 33'R) Uranus in the First House  

Uranus in the First House (or sign) gives an individual with an original and eccentric mind, whose intuition is strong. Change and variety excite you. You are a nonconformist, and totally have your own code of ethics. You are constantly asserting your freedom and independence, which is the very breath of life for you. The Uranian energy can be impulsive, as well as insensitive to others' needs, and you can appear to be cold at times, or you may seem to be more excited by ideas than by other people. You may feel unrest and isolation, as though on a separate wavelength from the rest of mankind. Your mutability and urge for constant change can frustrate or confuse those around you. You may also feel uneasy in your sense of self, as you attempt to come to terms with this basic instability. You benefit from learning practices that help balance your energy, and in developing understanding and acceptance that not everyone is as impulsive as you are. You are in your essence a free spirit, courageous and pioneering, whose mission in life is involved with bringing new ideas into being.  

The following applies to your generation as a whole as well as to you personally:  

Uranus in Taurus (or the second house) gives an individual who is likely to be concerned with changing his or her physical environment. You have a unique value system, and you may "march to the tune of a different drummer" or choose to experiment with different lifestyles. You have a tremendous drive for independence, and you don't like to work for other people, so that you may be motivated to start your own business. You also may be involved with New Age business ventures, or those involving modern communications, such as Internet resources. You have a unique way of looking at the world, and of finding your own way to its abundance. You may have possessions that you value at one point in your life, but this can change rather suddenly, and you may have to start over. Your income can also fluctuate. You can appear selfish at times to other people, or you may be something of a crusader. You benefit from getting in touch with what you truly value, as opposed to what conventionality dictates. Then your efforts will allow new resources to evolve in your life and your consciousness, and lead to the greater good of society.

Neptune in Virgo (26° Vir 02') Neptune in the Sixth House  

The following paragraph emphasized:  

Neptune in Virgo (or the sixth house) gives a mentally creative personality with a tendency to be critical at times. With this placement you can become confused over details. You may have problems with responsibility or feeling that you must be of assistance to others, no matter how you are feeling about it, or you could experience your work as frustrating and ultimately dissatisfying. Or there may be an unconscious tension between your rational mind and your innermost feelings, such as a psychosomatic illness not properly diagnosed. On the other hand, the ideal of service you aspire to, both to other people and to your own highest purpose for yourself, may lead you to a significant mission in your life. You could achieve greatly in the helping professions, possibly with a specialization in alternative medicine, and especially if Neptune is well aspected by other planets in your chart. You benefit by getting away from too great an involvement in the limited and personal, moving toward the broader ideals of service to humanity and personal transformation.  

Pluto in Leo (4° Leo 11') Pluto in the Fifth House  

The following paragraph emphasized:  

Pluto in Leo (or the fifth house) gives you a tremendous desire to be recognized and admired. You may feel a compulsion toward self-aggrandizement, or have underlying feelings of insecurity leading to self-centered and ego-oriented behavior. You are an essentially dynamic and charismatic individual with a strong need to make an impact on the world around you. You may find much to admire in the acting and artistic professions, and find your own creative outlet there, although you are likely to go through many changes and challenges in putting yourself forward in a way that truly serves as an expression of your highest purpose for yourself. If you have children you may seek to live your life through them, and experience the twists and turns of fate as you come to recognize some of your own unconscious impulses acting themselves out in this regard. Your desire for personal reputation may also be thwarted, but this can lead to benefits for you, by forcing you to re-evaluate your need to achieve. Transformation in this area is quite possible, as you learn how to work with your personal power in more constructive ways. By embodying the more positive form of your creative energy, and thereby expressing your deepest truth, you can perform an important service for yourself and society.

Chiron in Leo (0° Leo 34') Chiron in the Fifth House  

The following paragraph emphasized:  

Chiron in Leo (or the Fifth House) represents issues with one's vital force toward expression of self in a magnetic way. With this placement you may experience as painful your sense of who you are and how you express your individual self-hood. You have a strong desire, even a compulsion, to be seen on some form of public stage, to share your unique sensibility with others and move them or enlighten them in some way. Yet again and again you find yourself thwarted in your attempts to shine. You may appear shy, or feel awkward in the presence of other people. You may have had painful experiences in your formative years in which you were put down or been made to feel insecure. Or your basic sense of your own individuality may have been in conflict with that of important parental figures that were a powerful influence upon you as you were growing up. These experiences may have had the effect of causing you to be wary of actually coming out with who you really are. You may feel a strong sense of wanting to be your own unique and independent self, fully in touch with your inner being, but fail in the actual event. You may even have experienced radical blockages, such as accidents or other "acts of God" that have prevented you from achieving your full creative potential. You will continue to have painful experiences as long as these issues and their deep-seated emotions are relatively unconscious within your psyche. You may feel a need to help others in achieving their goals, rather than yourself. You may even make a career of helping others in this way, leading them toward the path that you might have taken yourself. This is valid as long as it comes from a place of no resentment for unfulfilled promises. It is important to try to become conscious of all your inner dynamics as you explore your life's path. Then you can shine out as a beacon for others, and achieve dramatic results in your own life as well, in ways you would never have dreamed possible.  

Jupiter in Taurus (13° Tau 42'R) Jupiter in the First House  

Jupiter in the First House (or sign) gives you a personality strong in self-esteem. You have expansiveness and abundant energy, and are likely to have good luck with the material side of life. You love freedom and independence, and possess an extremely optimistic nature. You see possibility in everything, a person for whom the glass is definitely "half-full" rather than "half-empty". A feeling of can-do is therefore an important component of your self-image. This is valuable for you, and gets you far in life, but you should beware of letting this faith in your powers express itself as mere egotism, especially in the case of challenging aspects between Mars and Jupiter in your chart. Your enthusiasm may need to be tempered with a healthy sense of limitation.  

Jupiter in Taurus (or the second house) gives you a deep appreciation of your home environment and the material side of your existence. You are likely to possess luxuries and the good things of life, which come to you without your even having to try very hard. You have the gift for making money. You are also likely to be very sensual in your appreciation of the finer things that life has to offer. You have an ease with the practicalities of life that many would envy. You are also likely to be fond of good food and your waistline may have a tendency to expand. You rarely take chances, and are so secure in your material well-being that you seem not to emphasize this factor, being more interested in personal and cultural values.

Saturn in Taurus (13° Tau 13'R) Saturn in the First House  

Saturn in the First House (or sign) gives a deepening and concentration, or a blockage, in the area of self-confidence and self-expression. With this placement you are likely to be reserved. You also have good reasoning power. You desire to better yourself, and are eager for success in the world of tangible results. The purposeful expression of your will may however be inhibited by subconscious fears, preventing action. This is a cross to bear, but you can definitely overcome this tendency with persistent effort over time. You may appear shy and stiff, or self-effacing, or you may over-compensate through defensive or argumentative behavior. You may at times strongly assert yourself, seizing control of situations. You may also suffer from headaches. You possess a powerful desire for freedom of expression that does not easily find its realization. Your lesson is striving to overcome any fears you may have in expressing yourself, and thus come to a better understanding of who you are and what you can achieve.  

Saturn in Taurus (or the second house) gives great loyalty, reliability, stamina and persistence, and a deepening or concentration of the desire to possess, both materially and with respect to loved ones. You are conservative financially, and feel that it is important to hold on to what you've got. You may be jealous at times. You may have doubts regarding your self-worth, or the basis of your security in this world. You tend to be traditional in your approach to life. You are a lover of art as well as natural beauty, and this love extends to the beauty of your surroundings. You perhaps have a tendency to overrate the importance of material things. You may fear poverty or loosing your possessions and this fear can also manifest as a desire for more and more which can never be satisfied. On the other hand you may try to deny the material in an over-zealous attack on "money as the root of all evil." Your lesson is to find your own true inner worth in terms of your character, your high standards, and your service to others.  

Venus in Virgo (3° Vir 13') Venus in the Sixth House  

Venus in Virgo gives a personality with careful judgment regarding relationships, and restricted in the expression of their passions. Your relationship energy toward others may be stifled in some way by mental considerations. You enjoy service to other people, and make a good friend. You are likely to be fastidious regarding what you like. You perhaps may delay marriage while searching for the perfect mate, since you have a tendency to look before you leap in matters of the heart. You can wind up looking too long and missing the boat altogether, so that you could set yourself up for being disappointed in love. You require tangible commitments from your partners, and exhibit propriety in the expression of your emotion. Your emotional responses may be conventional, rather than free and easy, so that you benefit from striving for a more open attitude.  

Venus in the Sixth House represents a strong heart connection to service and a capacity to make a dance out of your attendance to the details of everyday life. You may feel somewhat restricted in the expression of your passion. You have a tendency toward fastidiousness, and perfectionism, and may seek the perfect mate rather than allowing yourself to be satisfied. On the other hand, you are likely to blossom in the process of service to others. You take delight from everyday things, and are not overly concerned with the grand statement. You could also be a detail artist. You have a talent for design wherein beauty and functionality combine. You also have an inherent love of the health and perfection of the physical body, and may feel a calling to do energy work for yourself or with other people. You are well aware that the road to your higher purpose starts with the simple steps inherent in the ordinary joys of daily life.

Sun, Moon, Rising Sign Features

Aries Rising

The Rising Sign is the mask shown to others, also the physical appearance.  

Aries Rising people are energetic, forceful and outgoing. With Aries on the first House Cusp, you have a so-called "natural" chart, where the signs and the house cusps correspond. Things flow therefore more easily for you in your life, and in your work, the product of your interaction with other people. Your ruling planet is Mars, and you are good at getting things done, although you make a better starter than finisher. As a builder, in the first rush of spring, you are the 'headstrong' pioneering type, who is likely to rush into things before reflecting. You have great vitality and need to be physically active. You have a strong will, and may try to dominate other people, until you learn to be more subtle at getting your way. You also have an acute need for love and affection. You benefit from self-discipline, in order to channel your abundant energy more constructively.  

Sun in opposition (within 3.6 degrees) with Ascendant  

The planetary energies are polarized; outer events stimulate their interaction; integration is the challenge.  

This aspect between the Sun and Ascendant gives a strong-willed and generous personality. You are dramatic and assertive, also creative, self-confident and more than a bit self-indulgent. Like Leo rising people you expect to be the center of attention, and often are. You also have great energy, courage and honesty and are very proud. Your challenge is to become more aware of yourself; to refrain from arrogance and egotism, and rather to develop humility and compassion, and to learn detachment in the gift of your affections.  

Sun in inconjunct (within 2.6 degrees) with Jupiter  

The planetary energies do not flow smoothly, one or the other predominates; discrimination must be employed.  

This aspect gives an optimistic and high spirited individual. You are likely to be fortunate in your material surroundings. You are convivial and lively, and generous with your money and your affections. There may be a tendency to overdo things, or to expand the waistline. You are attracted to higher learning and the fine arts, and are courageous and loyal, but you can be extravagant and suffer from errors in judgment. You should also beware of too much egotism.

Sun in inconjunct (within 3.1 degrees) with Saturn  

The planetary energies do not flow smoothly, one or the other predominates; discrimination must be employed.  

This aspect gives a deepening and concentration of your self-expression. You can be strong-willed and determined, or cautious and reserved. There may be a sense of lack of love, and a subconscious desire for recognition. The lesson for you is to deepen and broaden the knowledge of who you really are at the level of your innermost soul, and to really learn to love the person that you find in this process.  

Sun in quintile (within 0.1 degrees) with Pluto  

The planetary energies are positively linked, subtle, and spiritual in dimension.  

This aspect gives a personality with a focus on being recognized and admired. You have strong desires, and are single-minded about pursuing them. You have an urge toward self-transformation, and may go through many changes in your life. You tend to champion the underdog, and react strongly to social injustice. When you train your considerable energy on socially oriented as well as personal goals, you can become a focal point for the transformation of society itself.  

Moon in strong trine (within 0.9 degrees) with Mars  

The planetary energies flow smoothly; the connection is easy and beneficial.  

This aspect gives a vigorous and daring personality. You are outgoing, and may also be a profound thinker. You have a practical and matter-of-fact way of going about things. You speak directly and to the point, although you may be over-sensitive to criticism. All in all, you have good control over your passions and balance well between the extremes of getting close to other people and maintaining your own sense of individuality.

Moon in strong opposition (within 0.6 degrees) with Pluto  

The planetary energies are polarized; outer events stimulate their interaction; integration is the challenge.  

This aspect gives a moody and introspective personality with a strong desire for emotional security. You are likely to be very sensitive and emotionally intense, with a tendency to become completely absorbed in interpersonal relationships. You are also an extremely forceful individual, with the urge to transform yourself and your surroundings. When you have a goal in mind, nothing will stand in your way. Your need for security may manifest as an almost compulsive desire for a safe and secure home life, or a home environment which can be completely controlled, possibly even through dictatorial behavior. You have an unusually clear insight into the emotional depths of other people, which may border on an actual psychic attunement with their states of being. You also have the urge to break through the limitations of the parental influence you experienced as a child. You may have experienced controlling behavior on the part of one or both parents, especially your mother, and you may find yourself still involved in the battle for your own autonomy many years later. These struggles can be worked through in your life, beginning with a deeper understanding of what it is you truly need on an emotional level. Your challenge is to transform your sense of insecurity, by coming to terms with your survival issues based on a better insight into your own hidden motivations.  

Moon in strong opposition (within 3.0 degrees) with Chiron  

The planetary energies are polarized; outer events stimulate their interaction; integration is the challenge.  

With this aspect there are difficulties indicated in relating to the feminine - either significant female presences in your life or else and including your own feminine side. This would be true, and different in its sense, in either a man's or a woman's chart. Of course the important early model for the feminine is mother, and it is likely that there were painful experiences of some kind in your early relationship with your own mother or significant female parental figure. Perhaps you had a close relationship, but yet your needs were somehow not met, resulting in unconscious resentments which only surfaced later in your adult life. You may in this case exhibit a strong feminine side through and over-attachment to your mother's feelings. It is important to note that there also may have been actual abuse, physical or otherwise. These experiences are so painful that they are often suppressed from your consciousness, and buried deep in your psyche. In your adult life, it is important to move past the resentment caused by early wounding into a more conscious and compassionate reconciliation with the walled off parts of your own nature. Therefore, deep psychological work of some variety is strongly indicated. Once you have begun to make conscious the pain and alienation surrounding events from the long-buried past, you can begin to truly help others as well as yourself. A creative side of your nature may emerge for the first time. The integration of the feminine side of your nature is a tremendous challenge for you, but the gold at the end of the process is well worth digging for.

Moon in square (within 5.0 degrees) with Mercury  

The planetary energies conflict; internal and creative tensions bring rich rewards through effort over time.  

This aspect gives a brilliant mind with a sharp tongue and a witty personality. You are an independent thinker. You can be sensitive at times, and you may find yourself overly concerned with health issues. You may appear to have the attitude of the reformer toward your fellow man, because you have a tendency to let your emotions run away with your thoughts. You should also beware of a tendency to indulge in gossip at times, or to speak disparagingly of other people. However you make a loyal ally and will fly to the defense of a friend.  

Moon in inconjunct (within 0.3 degrees) with Venus  

The planetary energies do not flow smoothly, one or the other predominates; discrimination must be employed.  

This aspect gives you a somewhat difficult personality. You are kind and artistically gifted, but you may be hard to live with. You dislike having to act charming in social situations when you may not really feel it, and you have a reluctance to come forward into relationship with others, although you have a good deal of charm when you allow yourself to express it, and can be very popular socially. You may encounter sadness in your life as a result of close personal relationships that go astray. You also may spend your money unwisely, and may need to cultivate more respect for its value.  

Mars in strong sextile (within 1.5 degrees) with Pluto  

The planetary energies flow together, open into new possibilities, new connections.  

This aspect gives a personality with a tremendous drive for power and transformation of self. You are strong-willed almost to the point of ruthlessness, and you have enormous energy and endurance at your disposal. You may appear timid or unsure of yourself, since the power urge is commonly repressed, but then there is the potential for sudden bursts of anger due to the repressed emotion finally exploding to the surface. You may also have feelings of insecurity that are compensated for by being overly forceful, acting compulsively or even becoming obsessive about achieving your will. In a more positive manifestation, you can exhibit a dedication to higher ideals and a willingness to be a channel for healing yourself and society. The challenge is movement away from feelings of insecurity and resulting separateness and loneliness, toward a better acceptance of other's needs and opinions in order to generate wholeness, forgiveness towards self and others, and a new and better sense of self-worth.

Mars in strong sextile (within 2.1 degrees) with Chiron  

The planetary energies flow together, open into new possibilities, new connections.  

With this aspect you have issues around expressing anger, as well as exerting personal will versus knuckling under to authority. It may be that you have had painful experiences with violence, or potential violence, on the part of someone close to you, perhaps in your early childhood. As a result of these experiences, you may fear the power of your own anger, and seek to placate your opponent in situations where a direct confrontation seems to be brewing. You may exhibit something of a "passive-aggressive" attitude, in which there is hidden aggression under-expressed, rather than any form of direct attack. It is often the case that the powerful emotions associated with this aspect hover below the level of conscious awareness in your psyche. As you become more aware of these patterns, you will less and less need to act them out either suppressed with passivity, or with bluster. Another manifestation of this aspect, perhaps paradoxically, is the ability to lead and be willful, to not take "no for an answer". The willful energy of Mars is given a creative boost by Chiron, both in terms of suffering and in a better-integrated personality, in terms of conquest. A still better level of integration produces the self-assured and powerful personality who does not depend on others either to express his or her own desires, nor to be crushed by them.  

Venus in semi-sextile (within 0.6 degrees) with Mars  

The planetary energies attract each other, require effort, allow entry of new information.  

This aspect gives a passionate and sensitive nature. Your emotions are strong, and there is likely to be some suffering from conflicts in the battle of the sexes. You are an ardent lover, and you may be very sensuous, especially if Mars is in Aries, Leo, Scorpio, or Capricorn. You may benefit from better control over your emotions; as you have a strong temper, but offset by a warmly affectionate nature. You are likely to be fond of music, especially singing and dance. In the passage of time there may be lessons to be learned by knocking up against emotional obstacles.

Other Natal Planets

N Node in Libra (11° Lib 01') N Node in the Sixth House  

Lunar North Node in the Sixth House (or sign). South Node in the twelfth house or sign. This placement gives a personality with a great desire to be of service to other people. In the past, or in past lives, you were dreamy and unfocused, and paid little attention to detail. You were in the process of connecting to your higher self, journeying back into the cosmic realms within your own mind. Now your focus must shift to the details of daily life, in a constant effort to improve self, to serve self and others, and to remain alert to the myriad mundane details of life that do not leave much time for day dreaming. This is a difficult transition to make, but necessary if you are to fulfill your destiny, this time around. As your life unfolds, you may find that issues of health may come up for you, in order for you to work through them. You may possibly be called to care for another whose illness will be a test of your patience and your commitment to service. Since you feel a close kinship to the spiritual world, dealing with every-day details sometimes may seem boring and unsatisfying. As you work through these challenges, though, you come closer and closer to an understanding of how dealing with every-day issues really does connect you with the world of Spirit, still operating at the core of your being.  

Lunar North Node in Libra (or the seventh house). South Node in the first house or sign. This placement gives a personality with a focus on forming close partnership attachments. You may have difficulties in marriage and partnerships; but there are also great rewards to be gained in this area. This is ultimately a spiritual placement of the North Node. In the past, or in past lives, you have been concerned with yourself alone, but now you must make the transition to being mostly concerned with others. This concern for the other person does not come naturally to you, for it is easier to rely on yourself, as you have always done. Now, in this lifetime, though, you need to focus your energies outward. The welfare of the other person, your intimate partner or your partner in other types of relationship, is a necessary key to your own spiritual evolution. By fulfilling this mission of connection with others, you enrich your own experience, so that you come back to yourself more whole, more well rounded. Your lessons in this life revolve around this ideal of true giving of yourself to another.

Pluto in conjunction (within 3.6 degrees) with Chiron

An overly active interest in sexuality, the potential for the abuse of power, ultimately powerful healing abilities, all are indicated. There are great depths of passion within you, likely the result of painful experiences from early childhood. As long as these experiences remain unintegrated, they will cause a stir, both for yourself and for anyone you become close to.

You also have a keen intuition and great power to transform yourself and your personal relationships as you evolve. You may be one to harness the energy of the collective, especially with regard to the coming transformation of society.

Your lesson is to learn faith and to cultivate a positive attitude toward your mental process, restructuring that process along more personal and less rigid lines.

Mercury in weak square (within 4.4 degrees) with Pluto  

The planetary energies conflict; internal and creative tensions bring rich rewards through effort over time.  

This aspect gives a sharp and penetrating mind, together with unusually clear and direct communication skills. You are likely to be quite interested in the occult, or other hidden and potentially taboo areas of thought. As a matter of fact, you tend to see into the deeper aspects of any subject matter that you might single out for study, and are able to discourse forcefully upon it. You may however become so focused on the emotional charge with which you hold these ideas that you lose a certain sense of perspective regarding them. In other words, you can be compulsively attached to your communication or the results of your mental process, so that there is a danger that you may feel yourself to be correct in what you say in spite of what others may think. You might also need to be aware of a tendency to be manipulative in your dealings with other people, since you have a forceful will in association with your powers of speech and communication. You can be a great source of inspiration when you use your powers of insight and expression responsibly, enabling you to share your gift with humanity.

Your basis for action derives from a sense of high ideals, rather than from mere egotism. You are genuinely creative and may find an outlet in artistic pursuits. You also could beware, however, of a tendency to be dogmatic, or proud and unbending. Change and variety excite you, and your mutability and urge for constant change can frustrate or confuse those around you. In essence, you are a courageous and pioneering free spirit, whose mission in life is to bring new ideas into being. You can benefit from bringing more consciousness and clarity to the expression of your goals in life.
