Woman to Woman

An Astrological Portrait

Prepared for Madonna

Your astrological chart provides an amazing guidepost to the most important aspect of your life: an understanding of yourself. As a woman today, you face the challenge of discovering yourself within the context of many life experiences. You wear a variety of faces and play many roles, experiences which can both enhance and complicate your feeling of satisfaction with yourself and your life. Your astrological chart provides indicators which help to define who you are, strengthening an understanding of your needs on every level. Each chart is different in its make-up, and the myriad combinations of influences help to underscore the importance of each person as an individual. One thing you must remember when working with astrology: it is through your free will that you make choices. Your "chart" does not make you do anything!

We are finally acknowledging and realizing within today's world, that men and women experience life differently. The workings of your psyche, symbolized by your astrological chart, are likely to be experienced quite differently through your filter as a woman than they would be if you were born male. This report is designed for you, a woman in a world of change, a woman seeking to become whole.

Your natal, or birth, chart is made up of several factors. Drawn upon a circular wheel, your natal chart shows the positions of the planets relative to your place, date and time of birth. Everything is indicated symbolically, with each symbol having specific meanings. The planets, Sun and Moon are placed around the circle, and each is placed within a particular degree of a sign of the zodiac. The planets, Sun and Moon are energy bodies, and the astrological signs indicate how these energies work. Just as you are a complex of feelings, needs, drives and desires - your natal chart maps these qualities. You will also notice that the planetary symbols fall within particular segments of the circle. These segments, called "Houses", indicate the specific environments and relationships which are part of your life. You may find, upon reading your report, that there are a few contradictions. For example, one factor may indicate independence, while another shows strong dependency. It is not unusual to experience contradictions within yourself, and that is just what your chart illustrates about you! But when you reflect upon these qualities within the context in which they are explained, you may discover some self-illuminating facts about yourself. Self-understanding has a marvelous way of emphasizing your personal power!

 

 

 

An Overall Glimpse at Your Astrological Chart

The astrological signs are defined by one of four elements: fire, earth, air or water. The fire and air elements have a yang (masculine polarity) quality, and tend to be more outgoing and assertive in their nature, whereas the earth and water elements have a yin (feminine polarity) quality, and are more receptive by nature. The elemental balance in your chart is determined by the amount of energy within each elemental sign. The factors added together to find this balance of energy include the Sun, Moon, planets and the angles of the Ascendant and Midheaven.

Your chart shows a strong predominance of earth energy, indicating that you are a "show me," kind of person. A practical, common sense approach to life feels most comfortable, and you'll most enjoy life when you have your feet on the ground. You're the earth mother type - with a natural inclination toward sensuality, practicality and conservation. In any situation, you prefer to build strength and stability and you may be oriented toward producing: at the end of the day, you're much happier if you have something to show for your efforts. But be very careful of a tendency to narrow your vision to the dimension of the physical plane. There are multiple levels of reality! The elemental balance in your astrological chart shows that water is a weak factor. Emotional situations can be rather uncomfortable for you, although you may be somewhat fascinated by others who display their feelings readily. The world of your inner self, your emotional self, can seem tremendously difficult for you at times, and if you're overwhelmed by emotion, you may find yourself shutting down in order to keep your feelings under control in order to avoid pain. Your best therapy is to deal with your feelings, and to acknowledge them. And you may also need to be more attentive to the feelings of others, or you could be accused of being cold or uncaring. Self-sufficiency is one thing, but total distance can be quite lonely. Stimulate your emotional nature in a positive sense by getting into the water element and enjoying it. Swim, take long soaking baths, or let yourself walk outside in the rain on a warm day. And if you're really feeling brave, rent a tear-jerker movie, make a cup of tea, grab your hankies and close the door.

Another aspect of your basic nature is determined by the balance of the modes in your chart. The modes are also defined by sign, which are grouped together as either cardinal, fixed or mutable. Your strongest mode of energy is mutable, conferring a powerful sense of adaptability to your personality. Your flexibility is your strength, but your distractible nature is your weakness. Sometimes you may feel like a circus juggler with too many objects in the air at one time, and you may need to constantly remind yourself to focus on the task at hand instead of leaving something midstream. However, you also have an adequate level of fixed energy, which helps you maintain your focus and stability in the midst of change, and aids in your ability to complete your obligations. Your weakest link is in cardinality, which indicates that you sometimes feel reluctant to get started, especially in new situations.

When you view the whole picture of your chart, you'll see that there is an emphasis of planets on the left side of your chart. This hemisphere strength indicates that you are driven by a need for independence and autonomy, and that you feel most validated when you feel that you're living life on your own terms. You may find it difficult to allow others to support or help you, even when you want them to lend a hand, and can certainly have trouble asking for assistance (especially if you feel it diminishes your sense of self to do so!). Relationships can be difficult for you unless you are in a situation which allows equanimity and equality, but be careful of your tendency to want to take the lead all of the time. True equality means that both partners are powerful.

You may also be concerned with the areas in your chart which appear to be empty. Never fear, these houses are not really vacant! You are just not placing as much emphasis in these relationships or environments, or you may be satisfying these needs through other dimensions of your life.

 

 

 

Projection of Your Real Self

Sometimes showing the world who you really are is not easy, and sometimes the world may not respond as you had hoped! It's helpful to take a look at the differences and similarities between the attitudes, impressions and images you project and the person who resides at the core of your being.

With your Sun in Leo you're likely to radiate a sense of regality and power, even if you're just sitting at home in your old jeans. Although you may not demand to be the center of attention, you can certainly carry it off when the spotlight is on you. You're driven by a need to create and express yourself, and enjoy playful people and situations. When challenged your pride can get in your way unless you develop some objectivity about yourself, which can be a tough job if you're too self-absorbed. It's okay to think of yourself as royalty some of the time, but just remember that others may not see you that way!

Your Ascendant is the face you present to the world, and shows how others see you. Your Ascendant, or rising sign, is Virgo. Through this influence, you may be somewhat the perfectionist in your appearance and may be most comfortable when you feel well-groomed. Others may view you as detail-oriented, which has its advantages if you know what you want. You may be extremely aware of your physical body, to the extent that you know when anything is not working properly. You'd better keep a nail file in your pocketbook, since you'll fiddle with that ragged nail all day if you don't have a chance to fix it! The energy associated with your Ascendant is Mercury. With Mercury in Virgo, you are likely to present an image of a studious, intelligent woman. You project efficiency and may be known for your discriminating taste.

The Moon is conjunct your Ascendant, adding a special emotional sensibility to your personality. Even your friends may call you "Mom," because they feel your support and care. Others are definitely likely to know how you feel, since you may wear your feelings in your expression and demeanor. In many situations, this can be a plus, particularly in creative self-expression. This emphasis can indicate increased moodiness and emotional sensitivity. You are especially sensitive to the cyclical nature of life on the physical plane, including your own physical cycles which manifest through your menstrual phases. By watching yourself and becoming more attentive to your natural cyclical rhythms, you can actually enhance your personal awareness and creativity. These cycles are, of course, much more than physical, and have dimensions which connect to your emotional, mental and spiritual sensibilities. You may also be seen by others as a nurturing type, and in your relationships you may take on the role of nurturer. Just be sure you remember that you need some tender loving care, too.

With Mercury conjunct your Ascendant, others will always see you as a communicator. You could be in the grocery store minding your own business and someone is likely to ask you a question - and generally, you know the answers! Your personality is outgoing, and may even be somewhat mischievous. Sharing your ideas is natural and easy, and you may be quite talkative. To enhance your communication abilities, concentrate on becoming an exceptional listener.

Pluto's conjunction to your Ascendant adds a powerful intensity to your personality. You can be both enigmatic and intimidating, and can project a powerful charisma. Your perceptions about people can be quite keen. You may have a sharp eye for details in behavior, manner and attitude that others easily miss. The healing quality of your energy can have a powerful transformational effect in the lives of others, and you may be walking the path of the medicine woman. You're not likely to allow others to take advantage of you but you can be intimidated by guilt. So, anyone who knows your "guilt buttons" may have a bit of power over you. Your best protection is to discover those hidden issues and deal with them so that your are free of them, once and for all.

There are many different facets of the Moon in your chart. But when it comes to your identity, your Moon speaks volumes about who you are at the deepest level: the soul of your being. Your Virgo Moon strengthens your sense of discrimination, and underscores your need for perfection. The problem can be the yardstick you use to measure that perfection, and you may be frustrated with your own humanity and vulnerabilities as a result. You may be more sensitive to criticism, but can also be highly critical of yourself and others as a part of this desire to have your life exactly as you feel it should be. By directing your need to make improvements toward positive ends, you'll feel much happier with yourself and with others. That means you may have to let go of the idea that everyone (including yourself) and everything will meet your high standards all of the time.

 

 

 

Understanding Your Inner Feminine Self

Although the temptation is to think that just because you are a woman you are in touch with your inner feminine self, this is a much more complicated task than it appears to be! First of all, the model for the true power of femininity has been lost over recent history and is now becoming re-energized. Recovering this power is a personal task for each woman, and learning to use feminine power constructively on a collective level is another challenge for today's woman. This process is the cradle of self-healing, and provides the essence of your personal security.

The primary energies associated with your inner feminine self are the Moon and Venus, but Neptune and Pluto are also significant in your experience and expression of this part of your psyche. The Moon is the energy which filters through your subconscious self, and tells the story of your connection to the part of you which provides nurturing, support, care and comfort. The person who projects the model for your Moon energy is your mother, and you see her through the lens of your own emotional matrix, signified by the Moon. As you mature, you learn to send this energy into the world, but to be truly effective, you must first own this energy and know how to use it to care for yourself!

Your Virgo Moon strengthens your sense of connection to your feminine self, and adds a steadiness to your emotions. Your instincts about the best ways to do things are usually right on the mark, which can be a little irritating to those who would take a more haphazard approach. As a woman of discriminating taste with an eye for quality, you're not likely to settle for anything that falls below your standards - including a mate. The high standards you set for others are nothing compared to the standards you hold for yourself. In fact, you might gain a great relief by simply giving yourself a break from time to time and letting your hair down. Otherwise, you can become nagging and hypercritical, just because you are concerned about getting everything done in the best possible manner. You may have a particularly powerful sense of body awareness and may go out of your way to maintain your physical health. Eating a natural foods diet which centers on simple nutritional balance may even help you maintain your emotional balance. For you, the mind-body connection is especially crucial, and taking steps to keep your spirit, soul and body in healthy condition will definitely improve the quality of your life. Although you can accept most physical limitations with a matter-of-fact kind of attitude, you are not likely to appreciate being sick since you are oriented toward producing something by the end of the day. But you can also adapt when necessary. Striking a few requirements from your list of expectations may have a marvelous healing effect on your life as a whole. And finding a reasonable outlet for your critical sensibilities is necessary to help you maintain your sanity. Developing greater tolerance for yourself and for others is your key to finding greater joy.

The Moon and Mercury conjunct in your chart can bring a positive enhancement to your intuitive sensibilities. But when you're emotionally involved with someone or attached to a particular outcome, your emotional needs can block the clarity of your intuitive self. Your feelings about something can also get in the way of your objectivity when you need to make a rational decision, and sometimes your attempts to be purely rational can block the expression of your deeper needs. Just remember that how you feel about something might be just as important as weighing the "facts" in a situation, although you may have to set your feelings aside in some circumstances. Finding ways to remain emotionally centered can be of great benefit to you.

The conflict between what you need and what you want is signified by the energy of your Moon in semisquare aspect to Venus. Creating an awareness of your deeper feelings is the only way out of this conflict, especially when it comes to relationships. In other choices like career decisions, this tension arises when you have to face something like asking for a raise, changing jobs for personal reasons, or climbing up the ladder in a manner which seems personally awkward. Although you may sometimes think that it would just be easier to let somebody else tell you what to do, you are not likely to be satisfied with the end results unless your own needs and list of preferences are carefully considered.

With your Moon in trine aspect to Mars, you can be quite confident about expressing your feelings and asserting yourself in a positive manner. Your knack for dealing with people is excellent, and you can be quite effective dealing with men on your own terms. You are likely to find the male-female dance quite interesting and enjoyable, and the differences between men and women are more intriguing to you than they are perplexing. As a mother, you can be especially supportive, since you enjoy dealing with your children on their level and generate an atmosphere of safe support, creativity and fun. In relationships, you are not likely to hesitate about expressing the way you feel, and can show all your emotions, including anger, without worrying if they are "acceptable." Since you take yourself at face value, you may also have the same approach to dealing with others, which makes for a great ingredient in any relationship.

Setting limits just seems frustrating with your Moon in semisquare aspect to Jupiter. But setting limits is necessary if you are to experience what you want from your life without stretching yourself too thin. When you're feeling insecure or vulnerable, you may also suffer from low self worth which seems, for the moment at least, to be relieved by overextending yourself in some way. If you're tempted to spend or buy when your funds or low, it's that need to feel better which may be prompting you to pull those credit cards from your wallet. If you're tempted to say "yes" when you really want to say "no," it's the same stimulus. You need to know that your life is filled with promise and possibility, but also need to safeguard that promise by knowing where to draw the line.

Your Moon is in the first quarter of the lunar phases, indicating that you approach the fulfillment of your desires and needs in an immediate manner. Your impatience with yourself and with everyone else around you can stand in the way for true fulfillment, but it is that same immediacy which is part of your chart. Your impulsiveness can seem quite "unfeminine" at times, since the old myth of femininity had much to do with "waiting for the prince." You are here to form a new quality of relating to life: the quality of fresh expression and spontaneity. You are here to project a powerful sense of identity, and achieving a sense of wholeness between your inner and outer self is an important part of your self development. The archetypal quality of "The Mother" represented by this moon phase elicits your strong connection to the natural rhythms of conception, creation and birth. You may even enjoy a positive element of freshness and new life in your projection of yourself as a woman. You'll not appreciate others trying to shelter you too much, but may need to find a few touchstones which will allow you to rest until you venture out into your next experience with life, love and happiness. Your weakness may be a lack of objectivity, and it can be difficult to find and own your power until you have mastered some skills which add greater objectivity to your sense of self and reality.

Through the energy of Venus you express your feminine wiles, and also locate the part of yourself that needs to be emotionally expressive. Your sense of inner beauty and feelings of personal worth are also functions of Venus. Venusian energy is part of your connection to other women, and the placement of Venus in your chart can tell you a lot about your openness and acceptance of your own femininity. Although your Moon may indicate your basic emotional nature, the manner by which you express your feelings is frequently through Venusian energy.

Through the energy of Venus in Leo you radiate a powerful, attractive energy. Your flair for the dramatic may be seen in your elegant manner and sense of style. Although you can be at home in casual attire, you can wear the most luxurious evening attire in grand fashion, and certainly look marvelous in jewels. Your warm smile lights up your face, and you may also enjoy being in the spotlight. Certainly in your close relationships you like being the center of attention, and may pout if you are ignored. It's unlikely that such a situation will last long, since you love life, and live to enjoy yourself. Indulging in your favorite forms of entertainment (and you may be quite entertaining yourself!) adds energy and power to your life. You are quite capable of standing up for yourself, and probably have a high level of self-esteem. Even if other factors in your chart diminish your self-worth, you can rise above them through tapping into the source of love which burns deep in your soul. However, you can be a bit lazy and self-indulgent, and if you're feeling hurt can go a bit overboard in this regard. Although you may take your time opening your heart, once you allow yourself to love, you are not likely to change your feelings. Even if a relationship ends, you may still hang onto it, although some of this can be a matter of pride. Anyone who has been the recipient of your warm hugs is not likely to forget you, since you do have a big heart and generous spirit.

Your expectations of yourself are quite powerful. Stimulated by the square between Venus and Jupiter, you may be rather flamboyant in your manner and may not know when you've had too much of a good thing. Setting limits is difficult and frustrating, since in your heart you may believe that anything is possible. If you see yourself in unrealistic proportions, or if you expect impossible things from life, you may feel continually disappointed. You might even try to make up for the deficiencies by overindulging yourself or overspending. There's nothing wrong with optimism, but there is a difference between optimism and unrealistic expectation. Learning that lesson is one of your challenges, and if you are to have the faith in yourself that you deserve, you'll have to face it. Believing that having enough money or status will make up for a lack of personal worth can get you started on the wrong foot. Try again. You are a creative, witty and visionary woman with a lot to offer. Now, that's a good beginning.

The energy of Venus in square aspect to Neptune stimulates your imagination and romantic spirit. You love delving into fantasy and can be quite dramatic. You may also be tempted to wear a mask in order to cover your feelings of vulnerability. This mask can be in the form of make-up, manner of dress, or different forms of escape. You are sensitive and have such idealism that you may feel true pain when reality slaps you in the face. The problem you may face in creating your true expression as a woman is discovering what it is you truly want and need. The vague sense that it's out there somewhere is not very convincing that you'll ultimately land on the right image or step into the magical spotlight. You need to find a way to allow romance and imagination to blend with what is truly possible. Using this energy to envision yourself as the woman you want to become, and then gradually altering your life to "test" your vision, can allow you to determine the differences between what you do and do not really need. Keeping your emotional boundaries intact is one of your greatest challenges, especially once you fall in love. But you can accomplish it by remaining mindful.

Although the planets Neptune and Pluto move very slowly and are generational in nature, they do have an influence upon your psyche. These energies define much about the collective experience which shapes your inner self. You're experiencing Neptunian energy when you're in the midst of reverie, when you're deep in dreams and when you're feeling compassionate. Neptune drives your imagination, the realm of illusion and your psychic sensibilities. Because Neptune is difficult to grasp on a physical level, there is a lot about this energy that can be problematic, and when you are caught in the negative grasp of Neptune, you can give in to addictive behaviors, escapism and deception manifesting. But you do have a way of channeling this energy. It is through Neptune that you find the heart of compassionate love and understanding. This is the doorway to your inner self.

With Neptune in Scorpio, you are part of the generation of women, born from 1955 to 1970 who are forging new frontiers in the sexual revolution. This is not only in terms of human sexuality, but also extends to the roles men and women play in regenerating society. You are the generation who will grapple with issues of control and whose influence in the arenas of human rights will cover the entire spectrum from conception, to birth, to sexual lifestyles, to choices in death. As you are maturing and making these choices, you may resist the idea that some belief system or government should dictate the choices you make in these intimate situations. But you must also create a vision which goes beyond these old systems and which encompasses a true compassion for the experience of life and the pain and joy of choice on every level.

Pluto represents the primordial essence. It is from this level that all transformation occurs: birth, death, illness and healing. It is also here that the powerful kundalini force continually regenerates itself. This is the space of all creation and all power. It is the space of origin: the Great Mother.

You are part of a generation of women born from 1957 through 1972 who have Pluto in Virgo. It has been your challenge to develop a true awareness of the relationship between mind, body and environment. You've blasted through many of the mysteries of the way humans function - at physical, psychological and sociological levels. Additionally, you may be seeking a way to improve the quality of life and are likely to be dealing with repairing mistakes and fixing things as much as you are creating new options. At an individual level, this energy prompts you to determine ways to improve yourself.

 

 

 

Owning Your Inner Masculine Self

For centuries, women were not allowed to assert themselves in the world, and carefully learned the role of supporter of their "men." Those who failed to respond in this manner were frequently shunned or punished, although there have always been women who defied convention! During this century particularly, women have broken out of their strictly "conventional" roles, and have been making their way in the world. Because of this, women have been successful at fulfilling more of their needs, and owning their own power more readily. As a result, a woman's relationship with the men in her life has also changed. Despite women's collective knowledge about the need to be whole persons, it is still sometimes easier to allow men (fathers, brothers, lovers and husbands) to "own" certain qualities. (They, in turn, prefer that women own certain qualities - like emotions!) But to become truly whole and functional, it is necessary to find and incorporate your inner masculine self into your sense of wholeness, instead of projecting that part of yourself onto others (most usually men) in your life.

Through the process of becoming at home with your ego, you gain a true sense of personal strength and power. To own this power, you must learn to acknowledge that it is okay to be recognized for who and what you are. Your Sun energy is the primary factor in the expression of ego needs. As a young girl, you may have seen your father through the filter of your Sun. His power of getting out into the world, and the manner by which he did it, have shaped your own sense of personal identity. And today, the Sun in your chart may symbolize significant men. But this energy is, in itself, the core of your spirit.

Since you're no stranger to the spotlight, you've probably had ample opportunities to express your assertiveness and personal strength. Your Leo Sun is a magnet for attention, and your actions and attitudes determine whether or not that attention is helpful or detrimental. You have the potential to radiate a powerful energy and may be an inspiration to those who need a stable source of confirmation that life is, indeed, okay. You can be intimidating to men who are unsure of themselves and may even take advantage of this; just try to remember your own insecurity when you first faced raw power! Taking on the challenge of leadership can be one of your most fulfilling experiences, although you can be quite domineering in some situations. If you've been giving away your power to the men in your life, you have probably attracted strong-willed individuals. But to become truly complete, you must learn to embrace and express your own individuality in a manner which opens your creativity and fills your heart.

Your confident, optimistic attitude supports your ability to express your personal assertiveness. The energy of the Sun in sextile to Jupiter strengthens your ability to act with conviction and hopefulness. You may also be quite accessible - comfortable with yourself, radiating a friendly, easygoing attitude. Both men and women may find you easy to be around, although you may be more interested in some of the pursuits considered "masculine," like politics, sales or sports. You like your masculine side, and that works to your benefit.

As a realist, you understand that you have certain responsibilities as a normal part of life. With your Sun trine Saturn, you may be quite happy to accept those responsibilities instead of expecting that someone else must carry your burdens. Your relationship with men and with your father may be quite good, especially in business circumstances. You express a positive sense of your inner masculine when you are in control of your life circumstances.

You may be tempted to allow your life to be absorbed by the will and expectation of the men you love, from father to lover to husband. You may even have had an experience early in your life which tested your ability to survive. In truth, the conjunction between your Sun and Pluto indicates that you need to know what it is to express the charisma and intrigue which are the essence of your power as a woman. Men may be both fascinated and overwhelmed by your intensity, and you're likely to stir up a bit of controversy with anyone who is uncomfortable with their emotions, including their sexuality. As you fully integrate the essence of your will and drive with your need to create change, you can become an effective healer and powerful catalyst for growth.

Mars energy is assertive, aggressive and combative, and can be angry. These are not "feminine" qualities. In fact, women who possess and project these qualities from within themselves often get bad names, and are called "ball-busters," or other expletives, by the men who are dealing with them. But to become fully whole, you need to accept the manner in which you can utilize your Mars energy so that you are confident and strong with it, and so you can get into the world and make things happen for yourself!

You may be stubborn. When you want something, you can be relentless in your pursuit of it. Through your Mars in Taurus, your embrace of the assertive side of your masculine psyche projects a powerful steadfastness. You may not want to turn the world upside down. In fact, you may do your best to make sure that those things which are important to survival remain. You may also be more comfortable projecting your fighting spirit onto men who seem to enjoy that type of thing. Through this part of your masculine self, you prefer to maintain the status quo.

You can be somewhat inconsistent in your assertiveness with Mars square Uranus. Your need for excitement can stimulate your pursuit of experiences which may be thrilling, but dangerous. You can also waste a lot of energy pursuing those thrills instead of creating what you really need. Freedom of expression is high on your priority list, and you may be attracted to people who also love freedom but have difficulty making commitments. For you commitments may seem more momentary than long term, but until you can focus your energy on what you truly need, you may always feel as though you are dangling in midair.

 

 

 

Developing Your Mind

Education and learning are lifelong processes. Your approach to developing your intellect is multifaceted, but there are special indicators in your astrological chart which help you understand the best ways to develop your mentality. Improving and strengthening communication skills is also part of developing your mind, since connecting to others is certainly improved if you can effectively illustrate your point of view!

Although the energy of Mercury is traditionally considered to be the main indicator of your mentality, there are also other qualities which are part of your mental and intellectual self. First, let's look at Mercury, which is the energy through which you link your thoughts and ideas with others. Your analytical powers can be highly developed through your Virgo Mercury, and you have a wonderful ability to maintain a practical perspective. Learning is easiest for you when you have practical experience and a hands-on approach to assimilating new information. You may also enjoy sharing what you know and can become an accomplished teacher. Although you may be somewhat critical in your judgment or assessment of people or situations, you may not intend to be nit-picking. Your eye for detail simply makes it difficult to ignore anything that is out of place or below standards. As a rule you try to keep an open mind, since you enjoy the experience of learning and discovering how things work.

Your imagination is easily stimulated with Mercury in sextile aspect to Neptune. Self-expression flows readily, and writing, music, painting and photography can all be worthwhile avenues for you to express your ideas and view of the world. You may be an excellent mimic and talented actress.

You are a perceptive thinker with Mercury conjunct Pluto, and can be rather intense when you're focused on something or someone. An excellent researcher, you like to probe beneath the surface for the information you need and may be fascinated with subjects like psychology, metaphysics or life science.

The energy of your Moon also has a mental component. The Moon is the realm of thought, the process of subconscious thinking, and plays a strong role in intuitive thinking. Since you appreciate well-educated individuals, you are likely to make an effort to improve your own understanding and knowledge. The influence of your Virgo Moon in your intellectual development is quite strong, and you may always be reading or studying something just because you want to know how things work. You may also be open to new ideas, although you'll probably test them before you accept them.

Jupiter also plays an important role in learning, stimulating you to look ahead into the realm of possibility, beyond the horizon of the now. Through the energy of Jupiter, you share what you know with others. As a woman, you are likely to feel most at home when you use this energy to encourage and support others, but you can also apply this to yourself! You've adopted a philosophy of fairness, and may believe that life should always be just with Jupiter in Libra. Although you've probably seen evidence to the contrary, your ideal life would involve situations where everyone is treated fairly and equally. You function and learn best in an environment which is beautiful and peaceful, and if you're involved in education, will include social skills in your teaching practices. You may also have an interest in the law and the social practice of other cultures and may be an expert in diplomatic or social relations.

Confidence in your ability to learn is stimulated through the energy of the Sun in sextile aspect to Jupiter. This can also indicate a positive relationship with your teachers, and may stimulate your own desire to share what you know with others. You enjoy the feeling of reaching beyond your limitations through developing your understanding.

In learning situations and in circumstances which require clear judgment, you can get into trouble when your idealism and imagination cloud your thinking. With Jupiter conjunct Neptune you visualize a life filled with peace and opportunity and may have difficulty accepting the more tragic elements of life. You must also avoid a tendency to try to "fake it" when you don't really know something. However, this aspect is helpful to actors, although there is a tendency to over dramatize!

The purpose of Saturn is to provide clarity, structure, form and discipline - elements which are certainly important to learning. Saturn functions primarily as your inner teacher. Mothers are the most influential Saturnian models in western society. They provide the structure, guidance and support for their children in the realms of learning, socialization or personal growth. Once you enter society as a child, teachers play the Saturnian role. But the role of mothers and teachers in relationship to Saturn is to help you define the structure upon which you will build your life. Then, you "own" your Saturn, and know how to discipline and focus your own energy.

Education can be a lifelong pursuit for you. The influence of Saturn in Sagittarius stimulates a strong need to explore the world of philosophy, religion and culture. You may also enjoy the sciences and can feel quite at home in academic surroundings. Teaching may be a natural outlet and will provide an endless opportunity for you to continue learning. But you may also enjoy travel and independent study.

The areas of your chart which are connected most strongly to mental and intellectual development are the 3rd, 9th and 11th Houses. The 3rd House of your chart deals with communication and the development of concepts.

You are definitely opinionated with Scorpio on the 3rd House and may have a biting wit. However, it's not easy for you to speak up in defense of yourself. You appreciate having things your way and learn best in situations which allow you to have some measure of control. An excellent student and unparalleled researcher, when you're interested in something, you will probe to the depths. Your interest in life science, medicine, psychology and metaphysics may be quite remarkable. With Pluto ruling your 3rd House you have the capability to getting to the core of anything and may not stop your search for answers until you've turned over every possible rock looking for clues.

You are a dreamer and visionary. With Neptune in the 3rd House, you think in terms of what could be, and have a powerful imagination. This sensibility can be readily translated into writing, music and artistry, but does not necessary aid your concentration when you need to learn something like algebra. Mental focus can be difficult, unless there are other aspects which aid you in this regard. As a result you can feel insecure about your intellectual development and ability. Meditation or participation in a disciplined typed of creative activity can help you channel your artistic manner of thinking into productive areas.

Your 9th House shows your approach to higher learning, which is usually accomplished through a college or professional degree program. Subjects like philosophy, religion, political science, cultural pursuits and the like are strongly associated with this facet of your development.

You have definite viewpoints about the way life should be with Taurus on the cusp of your 9th House. You may appreciate the value of higher education, especially where you see that it has practical value. Your curiosity about the wide-ranging differences in philosophies and religions may prompt you to study them, although your own philosophy may be more down to earth. With Venus ruling your 9th House you may enjoy the social elements afforded through education, and may be more connected to people who share your artistic or creative interests.

You're excited by the experiences of travel and may have a passion for learning with Mars in the 9th House. This placement also stimulates a mental restlessness, and can indicate some difficulty focusing your mind. You need some distractions in your life but can disrupt your flow and concentration by adding too many options. Your enthusiasm and zeal for your beliefs and ideals can be quite intense, and you can be quite effective stimulating the interest of others through your own devotion and strength of your convictions. You may need to guard against a tendency toward trying to influence others to change their own ideals against their will, since you can be extremely persuasive.

Through the 11th House you learn from peers, and connect with your community. The 11th House involves your special interests, too. This is very much the school of life, because this is also the area which relates to developing your goals.

Since your primary drive is to create a true sense of security, your goals will be set to accomplish that aim. With Cancer on the cusp of your 11th House, you definitely feel that it is important to do things which will keep you and those you love safe. You can also be quite successful in achieving your aims, because you know how to put more energy behind your objectives: you can both visualize and emotionally connect with your affirmations. The influence of your Moon is also connected to attaining your objectives, and may stimulate a powerful interest in family values, women's issues, historical preservation, or collecting (among other things!).

Learning the social skills necessary to further your pursuits of personal and professional growth is important with the influence of Venus in your 11th House. You know the significance of knowing the right people, making connections and developing the pathways which will help you achieve your aims. Although you may enjoy the experience of community, political or social interaction, you may not appreciate the feeling that you have to please others in order to have what you want. If this arises, it could be that you have made choices which are designed to satisfy someone else, and that it is time to re-examine your values and set goals which allow you to feel more worthwhile on your own terms. You can actually be quite adept at choosing the right friends and associates whose values reflect your own and whose influence helps to forward your own aims. Conversely, your influence can have the same effect in the lives of others!

 

 

 

Your Special Edge

It's true. Women are definitely the intuitive sex. The process of intuitive awareness may be more developed for you as a woman because you are more cyclically aware, thanks to your anatomy and hormonal changes. But there is something more. As a woman, your natural affinity with the energy of the Moon increases your receptivity, an important ingredient in opening to the intuitive process. Intuitive awareness is multifaceted. You can use it when you're dealing with emotional and psychological issues, you can apply it to your creative expression, and you can take advantage of your intuition in your work as part of your decision-making. Developing your intuitive process is like developing any other sensibility - you have to concentrate some time, effort and energy in order to finely hone this element of your psyche. Although some quality of intuition may be there innately, to make the most of it, you must learn to trust, listen and incorporate it into your life.

The parts of your chart which are most strongly associated with intuitive sensibility are the water houses: the 4th House, the 8th House and the 12th House. The 4th House is connected to your soul history. It is here that you seek a sense of home, a connection to your family, and a feeling of safety and comfort. It is here that your soul remembers your past, even if your conscious mind cannot fit the pieces together.

Your soul yearns for understanding with Sagittarius on the cusp of the 4th House. You may have very high standards for yourself and everybody else. If you can develop real tolerance, can become an inspiration for others through your quiet sense of determination to do things right. You may have a following, which can be a holdover from your soul's history of teaching and guiding others to find the truth. Your desire to explore the earth and her people stems from your own need to assimilate as much information as possible in your quest for true wisdom. Jupiter's rulership of this house adds an energy of expansion and desire to share and experience honest understanding between yourself and those who are part of your life. By tapping into your intuitive insight you can become more clear about what others need from you, instead of just assuming that you know what's best for them!

Astrometeorology—the study of correlations between weather and the Sun, Moon, and planets—dates back to the origins of Western astrology some four thousand or more years ago.
