This section reviews some of the technical aspects of astrology used to generate this report.  If you wish to go directly to your personalised interpretations, skip this section and return to it at a later time.  The personal information begins on page 5.

This report interprets your birth chart from the point of view of career factors in the horoscope.  The material is drawn from four sources: (1) the astrological literature, (2) Carl Jung's writings on psychological types, (3) scientific research on vocation and the planets (especially the work of French statistician Michel Gauquelin), and (4) the author's experience as an astrologer over many years.

Many of the interpretations assume that you know your birth time accurately within a few minutes.  If you are uncertain of the exact time, you can either cast a chart for SUNRISE of your date and place of birth or choose the UNKNOWN birth time feature of the program.  The sunrise chart provides an informative general report for anyone born on the same date and in the same place on earth and offers a valuable perspective on vocational issues.  Clicking on the Unknown time button calculates the Moon and planets for Noon for the place of birth, but places them in a solar houses chartwheel.  The unknown time report omits interpretations for time-sensitive points.

This material is based on large statistical samples.  Most people find that about 80% of the interpretations fit them closely whereas about 20% appear less applicable.  If contradictory traits appear in the report, it is likely that both traits are aspects of your personality, but they are in conflict or vie with each other for expression.  Astrology affords one of many perspectives on career potential.  You should weigh the contents of this report with other sources of information such as your school record, job experience, vocational testing, your own sense of your likes and dislikes, and input from people who know you well.  Astrology can guide you by suggesting options, but you alone have the ultimate responsibility to decide on a career path.

The birth chart outlines your potentials -- what you may become depending on how you develop your talents and confront your challenges and liabilities.  It also helps you to identify your essential needs and chief motivations.  The chart can both validate what you know of yourself and suggest further possibilities.  It is up to each of us to weigh these factors in deciding on a career path that will be satisfying and promote personal growth.  There are many paths open to each of us; our final destination depends on the choices we make along the way.

The natal horoscope taken in its entirety is a symbol of the person as a whole.  Jung called this type of symbol a mandala.  The signs of the zodiac represent twelve basic needs (and their corresponding challenges) that must be met in the course of human development.  A particular planet can occupy any of the twelve signs and thus has available twelve different modes (signs) for expressing its fundamental planetary drive or energy.

The houses of the horoscope symbolise the twelve broad areas of life where we seek to fulfil our basic needs.  The planets signify the fundamental urges, drives, energies, or functions of the human personality.  Each planet occupies a particular sign and a particular house.  In addition, the planets make connections among themselves (the aspects) that clarify how these energies connect with each other.  Soft aspects (sextiles, trines, and conjunctions of harmonious planets) show natural abilities and things that come our way easily without much toil.  Hard aspects (squares, oppositions, and conjunctions of inharmonious planets) show challenges and talents that require work to develop but that may lead to significant achievements.

In vocational astrology the second, sixth, and tenth houses are the most important.  The second house indicates what resources (talents, values, money, and assets) are at our disposal for developing our self-worth and making a living.  The sixth house symbolises the work environment, our co-workers, and the type of day-to-day labour involved.  The tenth house is the quintessential house of career and shows where we can become successful and achieve recognition in the eyes of the world.  Pay careful attention to the second, sixth, and tenth houses when reading this report. Consider the signs on their cusps, the planets ruling those signs, and the planets within those houses.

Also consider the strengths and weaknesses of this type of information.  A computer-generated interpretation can only list and describe the individual astrological factors in your chart, but it cannot synthesise them into a coherent story.  You will need to put everything together into a meaningful whole that best fits your life experience and personal development.  At some point, you may wish to consult a professional astrologer for further insight into your birth map.

An important key is to pay close attention to any themes that come up repeatedly in the report.  Such recurring themes represent significant needs that must be met for you to have a satisfying career.  In addition, because the planet Saturn is so closely linked to what we do in the world, it is especially useful to study the information about Saturn in your chart.  In several places, there are lists of various occupations taken from the astrological literature.  These job lists should be understood merely as illustrations of general principles rather than as specific recommendations of a career to pursue.  It is not possible to pinpoint a single specific vocational choice in a horoscope.

Regarding the Gauquelin research, the author has found that Gauquelin's findings about the meanings of planets in high intensity zones generalise to planets that are emphasised in other ways, according to the rules of traditional astrology.


The horoscope is divided into twelve sections or "houses," which are patterned after the twelve signs of the zodiac.  Each house represents a different area of life, and the sign of the zodiac on the cusp of each of the houses describes how we express the matters governed by that house. In vocational astrology, the most relevant houses are the First House whose cusp is the Ascendant, the Second House of income, the Sixth House of daily work, and the Tenth House of Career whose cusp is the Midheaven.  The houses are derived from your exact date, time, and place of birth.

The Rising Sign or Ascendant

The Ascendant is the sign of the zodiac that intersects the eastern horizon at the moment of birth.  It is closely linked to our sense of personal identity and reflects how we present ourselves to the world.  Each sign can be described by its Quality (Cardinal, Fixed, Mutable), its Element (Fire, Earth, Air, Water), and its Polarity (Yin, Yang).  Cardinal signs are outgoing and initiate activity; Fixed signs consolidate, build, and resist change; and Mutable signs are adaptable and make way for a new cycle.  Fire signs are intuitive and inspirational; Earth signs are practical and dependable; Air signs are mental and communicative; and Water signs are sensitive and emotional.  Yin signs are receptive and inner directed, whereas Yang signs are assertive and outer directed.

Libra Ascendant

Cardinal, Air, Yang

Keywords: diplomatic, refined, artistic, aloof, conceptual, communicative, ambitious, peacemaking, co-operative, indecisive, harmonious, relationship-oriented.

With Libra rising, you are outgoing and assertive when it comes to getting your needs met.  You take charge when you have to, and you are generally straightforward and direct in dealing with others.  There is usually a fondness for taking on challenges and generating new ideas, but you may be a little weak on the follow-through.  You work well in a crisis or under pressure and prefer to have the freedom to pursue your own interests.

People with a Libra Ascendant are usually well proportioned and often quite physically attractive.  They possess a good sense of form, balance, and harmony, which may find expression in the arts, music, drama, literature, dance, athletics, or other types of graceful self-expression.  You definitely appreciate the finer things in life.  The Ascendant signifies the body, and Libra here often gives an attractive and well-proportioned physical appearance.  Most likely you would prefer to work in pleasant surroundings.  You tend to dislike discord and violent confrontations, and you generally seek peace and harmony in relationships.  You genuinely like people, and your gracious and sociable demeanour assists you in working with others.

Key phrases for Libra are "I balance" and "I relate."  People with this position are drawn to occupations in which they can mediate, connect with others, and work directly with the relationships that exist among people, things, or abstract ideas.  Libra gives a strong sense of fairness, justice, symmetry, beauty, and proportion.  Librans prefer to work in a harmonious, relaxed environment where they can share ideas or debate with others.  People with a Libra emphasis tend to be pleasant and agreeable, and generally treat others as equals.

Typical Libra occupations include counsellor, therapist, public relations consultant, marketing, lawyer, judge, politician, designer, artist, musician, and beautician.  The career often involves social interactions and matters that appeal to public taste.  Libra is the sign of marriage and, abstractly, of the union of equal and opposite forces.  It is often prominent in the charts of chemists, army generals, and military or political strategists.  In afflicted charts, the negative side of Venus can cause setbacks due to laziness, deceit, superficial charm, showing off, cutting corners, or the excessive pursuit of sensual pleasure.

Some notable people with Libra rising are Judy Blume, Jon Bon Jovi, Pierre Cardin, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, T.S. Elliot, Jose Feliciano, Mohandas Gandhi, Adolph Hitler, Rock Hudson, the Dalai Lama, John McEnroe, Yoko Ono, Sidney Poitier, Frank Sinatra, Barbara Walters, and Denzel Washington.

The sign, house, and aspects of Venus, which rules Libra, will give further clues about your self-assertive drives.  The same holds true of the decan ruler(s) indicated below.

FIRST DECAN: Your Ascendant lies between 0 and 10 degrees of Libra.  Hence, your sense of identity also comes under the influence of the first decan of Libra, which is governed by LIBRA, VENUS, and Chaldean ruler, the MOON.  The combined effects of Venus and the Moon confer grace, charm, beauty, popularity, and often musical or artistic talent.  This is an excellent placement for politics, the performing arts, or any field that appeals to public moods or public taste.  Some well-known people with this decan rising include Denzel Washington, Bill Bradley, Bing Crosby, Harrison Ford, Rock Hudson, Birgit Nilsson, and Yoko Ono.

Cancer Midheaven

Our vocation is shown by the tenth house, the sign and decan of its cusp (which is the Midheaven or MC in most house systems), the ruler(s) of the tenth, any planets therein, and any aspects involving tenth house planets, the tenth house ruler(s), or the MC.

Key phrases for Cancer are "I feel," "I nurture," and "I protect."  Cancer governs the breast and the mother's milk.  Persons with a strong Cancer influence gravitate toward occupations that provide some sort of product or service to meet the needs of others.  Cancer is a sign connected with home, country, family and domestic issues, and often suggests a close link to one's family in career matters.  Because you readily sense the moods and tastes of the public, you could do well in politics, negotiation, commerce, investing, trading, or business.  You need to derive emotional satisfaction from your work by being part of a supportive or nurturing unit.  Cancer is a tenacious sign that likes to earn and hold on to money, and you may have a talent for one of the financial fields.  Most likely you show great determination in pursuing your career goals.

Cancer belongs to the Water element; and Water is linked to empathy, intuition, psychic ability, emotional sensitivity, and a desire to heal, comfort, teach, nurse, or care for others.  Water also confers an interest in art, music, song, dance, poetry, acting, comedy, or any type of creative, psychological, or spiritual endeavour.  Occupations found among people with a prominent Cancer include health care (nursing, medicine, psychiatry, counselling, psychology, obstetrics, social work, chiropractic, etc.), the humanities, teaching, politics (serving the needs of the country), sports management (taking care of a team), the ministry (caring for a congregation), banking, show business, publishing, the food and restaurant industry (chefs, cooks, bakers, ice cream and candy makers, caterers, restaurateurs), real estate, and home construction.

The sign of the Crab is prominent among those who write textbooks, children's books, and texts about cooking, fixing things, and home repair. Our cars are our homes on the road, and Cancer here may suggest work as an auto mechanic or car detailer.  Cancer may also lead to work with plumbing, home wiring, shopkeeping, the hotel business, laundry work, or market gardening.  The Cancerian desire to nourish can lead to work in farming, horticulture, milk production, animal breeding, or nutrition.  Past influences are Cancer concerns, and many historians, antique dealers, collectors, and developmental psychologists have this position in their charts.  Cancer is also a symbol of the oceans, and your occupation might have to do with liquids, the use of water, sailing, fishing, or the sea.

In afflicted charts, vocational setbacks may result from disregarding traditional family values, severing family ties, engaging in sexual indiscretions, excessive emotionality, or a tendency to brood and harbour resentments.  Some with this position achieve notoriety for their destructive behaviour or their contributions to the spread of weapons, war, and violence.

The sign, house, and aspects of the Moon, which rules Cancer, will give further clues about career potentials in your chart.  The same holds true of the decan ruler(s) below.

FIRST DECAN: Because your Midheaven lies between 0 and 10 degrees of Cancer, your career comes under the influence of the first decan of Cancer, which is governed by CANCER, the MOON, and Chaldean ruler VENUS.  The Cancer emphasis suggests a career in which you can nurture or take care of the physical or emotional needs of others.  Venus often gives musical, artistic or literary talent, good looks, and a pleasant manner of self-expression.  You could do well in a field that requires tact, diplomacy, grace, charm, and the balancing of relationships.

Scorpio Second House Cusp

Income and resources are shown by the second house, the sign (and decan) of its cusp, the ruler(s) of this house, any planets therein, and by any aspects involving second house planets, the second house ruler(s), or the cusp of the second house.

Scorpio here suggests that your ability to earn a living may be connected with your emotional sensitivity, sexuality, intuition, determination, and resourcefulness.  There is often an interest in power, control, and authority that can lead to an executive or managerial position or to a role in power politics.  Scientific, investigative, and healing abilities are also common.  Scorpio loves to ferret out secrets and to cut, dig, or probe beneath the surface.  This can lead to success in fields as diverse as scientific research, medicine, surgery, counselling, psychology, psychoanalysis, hypnosis, nursing, social work, criminology, investigation, detective work, mining, occult studies, and metaphysical counselling.

Scorpio is connected with joint finances, money management, taxes, sex, death, rebirth, elimination, and transformation.  Some with this position work in finance, life insurance, accounting, undertaking, sex therapy, renovation, demolition, pollution and environmental control, and related occupations.  Mars, the traditional ruler of Scorpio, may give an interest in occupations that involve vigorous physical activity, competition, athletics, sharp instruments, penetration, cutting, weapons, explosives, fire, or military matters.

Pisces Sixth House Cusp

Our daily work and working environment are shown by the sixth house, the sign (and decan) of its cusp, the ruler(s) of this house, any planets therein, and by any aspects involving sixth house planets, the sixth house ruler(s), or the cusp of the sixth house.

With Pisces here, you can benefit from work involving creative imagination, emotional sensitivity, and compassion for those who are suffering or disadvantaged.  You have a genuine interest in being of help to others.  This is an excellent position for doctors, nurses, social workers, psychotherapists, psychologists, chiropractors, medical researchers, pharmacists, priests, nuns, the clergy, mental health professionals, hospital or prison workers, and anyone who ministers to the needs of those who are ill or confined.

Pisces also favours those who express themselves creatively in song, dance, poetry, music, writing, art, film, theatre, comedy, artisanship, photography, and other fanciful productions.  There may be psychic ability, and an interest in occult or spiritual studies is common.  Some with the position are drawn to theorising about the universe on a grand scale.  Pisces is also connected to occupations involving oil, chemicals, paints, alcohol, gas, large animals, the feet, and the sea.  There is often a fondness for work done in privacy or alone.  In afflicted charts, this placement indicates a tendency to harbour resentments that may lead to addictive behaviour or explosions of rage.

Planets in Signs and Houses

Sun in Sagittarius

The Sun symbolises our core identity and basic life energy.  For us to feel authentic, our careers must allow for expression of our Sun sign's creativity and will to be.

Keywords: outgoing, aspiring, philosophical, spiritual, playful, distractible, forthright, visionary, restless, adventurous, broad-minded, communicative, risk-taking.

Sagittarius, the Archer, loves the excitement of the hunt but may be weak in committing to the routine that follows a successful catch.  Like the archer, Sagittarians have a knack for judging where the arrow is likely to strike.  The ruler of Sagittarius is expansive and benevolent Jupiter, chief god on Mount Olympus.  Sagittarians are idealistic seekers of truth who enjoy philosophy, religion, languages, higher education, and anything that expands their mental horizons.  Sagittarius is sometimes called the "sign of the prophet" because of its penchant for anticipating future trends. Like the other Fire signs, Sagittarius is energetic, outgoing, freedom loving, restless, enthusiastic, and optimistic.  Because Sagittarians "say it like it is," their input may be experienced by others either as tactless or as a breath of fresh air.

There is usually a liking for physical activity, exercise, amorous adventures, sports, animals, and the outdoors.  Potential pitfalls for Sagittarius include extravagance, lack of discretion, sensation seeking, "playing the field," risk-taking, and rushing in "where angels fear to tread."  In a statistical survey of careers related to sun signs by Paul Field (1964), entrepreneurial Sagittarius produced the smallest number of chemists. Sagittarius is a gregarious, extroverted sign that produces many entertainers, actors, performers, promoters, inspirational leaders, explorers, and adventurers.  Famous Sagittarians include Jane Austen, Maria Callas, Frank Sinatra, Joe DiMaggio, Walt Disney, Winston Churchill, Pope John XXIII, Ludwig van Beethoven, Mark Twain, Emily Dickinson, Sammy Davis, Jr., and John F. Kennedy, Jr.

Sagittarians generally prefer careers that allow for freedom, versatility, and independence.  They are good at communicating, writing, teaching, preaching, publishing, broadcasting, publicising, and making connections with other people.  Often they enjoy travel, aviation, foreign cultures, and contacts with people at a distance.  Many Sagittarians can be found in universities, libraries, the medical and legal professions, the clergy, journalism, advertising, sales, publicity, travel, higher education, competitive sports, the music or film industries, and work outdoors or with animals.  Other Sagittarius-related activities include travel agent, tourist guide, jockey, veterinarian, linguist, translator, gambler, speculator, and theologian.

Further information about your basic motivational system can be found by studying the house, sign, and aspects of Sagittarius ruler Jupiter.  The same holds true for the decan ruler(s) described below.

SECOND DECAN: Your Sun lies between 10 and 20 degrees of Sagittarius (approximately December 2 - 11), your sense of identity and purpose in life come under the influence of the second decan of Sagittarius, which is governed by ARIES, MARS, and Chaldean ruler, the MOON. The energy of Mars combined with the emotional sensitivity of the Moon can make you an excellent actor, singer, poet, performing artist, writer, healer, doctor, psychologist, or surgeon.  The Moon suggests a career that caters to public tastes, perhaps involving sales or somehow connected with liquids, transport, music, writing, or the sea.  Members of this decan include Joseph Conrad, Dave Brubeck, Ira Gershwin, Larry Bird, Jim Morrison, Jeff and Beau Bridges, Walt Disney, Kirk Douglas, Brendan Fraser, Tom Hayden, John Milton, Emily Dickinson, Rita Moreno, Frank Sinatra, and Dionne Warwick.

Sun in the Third House

The Sun represents our individuality, willpower, and sense of self.  The house occupied by the Sun reveals areas where we can feel authentic and express who we truly are.

You are an excellent communicator with a talent for written or verbal expression.  Your career may involve travel, teaching, lecturing, writing, editing, journalism, communications, or any form of transmission of information.  The third house is also connected with all forms of movement and transportation.  You prefer work that keeps you mentally stimulated or physically on the go.  Athletes with this position excel at sports that require a great deal of running or skilful rapid motion.

Moon in Aquarius

The Moon represents our feelings, emotions, capacity for empathy, psychological reactions, and habitual or subconscious patterning.  It signifies our need for security and our mothering instincts -- how we feel about, nurture, and care for one another.

An Aquarius Moon suggests that you are a friendly person who values personal freedom, equal rights, civil liberties, and humanitarian ideals.  You are intellectually sharp, intuitive, creative, original, and inventive.  Your capacity to remain emotionally cool and detached could lead to a career working with clients in an advisory, teaching, or counselling capacity.  You might also have an aptitude for mathematics, abstract thought, the law, medicine, psychiatry, computers, the Internet, electronics, technology, engineering, musical composition, modern gadgets or weapons, aeronautics, astrophysics, or any of the sciences.  An interest in finance is not uncommon and may lead to work in banking, accounting, stockbroking, or similar endeavours.  There is often a talent for writing, making documentary films, or explaining things to others, especially with regard to non-fiction, history, or technical matters.

Many with this placement enjoy work that benefits the community and public welfare or that enhances the lives of children.  Some prefer employment in large firms or enterprises, especially ones connected with civil service or government work.  There is commonly an interest in unconventional, off-beat, progressive, avant-garde, or New Age matters such as hypnosis, magic, astrology, mysticism, psychic phenomena, Tarot, and so on.  The July 4, 2023 chart of the United States has an Aquarius Moon, which may account for the mystical triangle that continues to grace the back side of the U.S. dollar bill.

Moon in the Fifth House

A fifth house Moon suggests creativity, dramatic ability, and showmanship. There is often artistic, literary, or musical talent.  This position enhances your popularity and could lead to success in politics, sports, public relations, the entertainment industry, publishing, or writing books for the mass market.  You derive great satisfaction from providing amusement to others.  This is an excellent placement for an actor, singer, dancer, or performer, whether it be on a theatrical stage or in a classroom.  There is often athletic ability and a tendency to speculate or take risks.  You are likely to be fond of caring for or working with children, and you probably want a family of your own.

Mercury in Sagittarius

Mercury is the messenger of the gods.  This first planet from the Sun represents our mind and thinking process -- how we learn, analyse, reason, and communicate.  It also reveals how we use our hands, move our bodies, and explore our surroundings.

You have a broad-minded, tolerant, and expansive mentality.  You love to learn and to expand your intellectual horizons.  There is often an interest in higher education, teaching, preaching, religion, philosophy, publishing, broadcasting, languages, travel, other cultures, and foreign affairs.  You may have a talent for communicating information to others in writing or via electronic media.  Your spirited and inspired manner of expressing yourself gives you a knack for promoting ideas.

Mercury in the Third House

A third house Mercury reveals a love of knowledge, analytic ability, and scientific or literary interests.  You are a natural communicator with a talent for education, writing, or teaching.  There is often an interest in languages, grammar, reading, and the skilful use of the written or spoken word. You like to keep on the go, and travel may be part of your daily routine.  You excel at gathering, collating, analysing, or distributing news and information.  You probably also have excellent manual dexterity and fine motor skills, and there may be talent for work requiring the expert use of your hands.  You feel at home in an office or a classroom; and you excel at work involving papers, writing, facts and figures, news reports, the telephone, and other Mercury-related concerns.  You enjoy and excel at making many contacts within your community.

Venus in Capricorn

Venus is the goddess of love.  This second planet from the Sun rules our affections, values, enjoyments, and how we relate to others.  Venus also governs art, beauty, adornment, pleasure, fun, and our sense of appreciation of the finer things in life.

Venus in Capricorn in common in the charts of those involved in the world of business, finance, banking, commerce, and government.  You are in control of your emotions, and may at times be somewhat cool and calculating.  You are probably hard driving and perfectionistic, but may be somewhat status-conscious.  As a worker, you are dependable and practical.  There is often organisational or managerial ability.

Venus in the Fourth House

A fourth house Venus suggests that someone in your early life showed genuine love and caring that has fostered your physical, intellectual, and emotional development.  This placement often indicates an attractive appearance and a robust constitution.  You appreciate the value of exercise and keeping mentally and physically in shape.  There is a potential for gain through property, land, real estate, antiques, domestic matters, or the goods and products of the earth.  You may also have an interest in city planning, providing for basic needs, weather forecasting, or other activities related to environmental conditions as they relate to human survival.

Mars in Virgo

Mars, the fourth planet from the Sun, is the ancient god of war.  Mars represents our libido, initiative, and physical energy.  The sign and house placement of Mars reveal how and where we express our passion, assert ourselves, and expend our energy.

You excel at work that requires you to be flexible, versatile, and adaptable.  You are a good communicator and a bit of a wheeler-dealer.  Your common sense, self-discipline, and problem solving abilities are definite assets.  Your manual dexterity may find expression in detail work, crafts, sports, cooking, gardening, landscaping, or other activities that require skilful use of the hands and upper extremities.  You enjoy finding practical applications for what you learn, and you like to pass on your knowledge by training or teaching others.  Although you have organisational ability, you may prefer not to be the one who is ultimately in charge but rather to be the power behind the throne.  Careers that appeal to you involve being useful to others or rendering some type of service, often in one of the helping, healing, or teaching professions.

An interest in health, nutrition, hygiene, hands-on healing, and therapeutics could lead to a job in the fitness, medical, or pharmaceutical industries.  Some with this position enjoy caring for plants, trees, pets, or small animals.  Your talent for analysis, critical thinking, and dealing with detailed information may indicate an aptitude for writing, science, mathematics, diagnosis, or one of the technical fields.  There is usually an ability to gather and organise large amounts of data into a useful format.  Your faults include being overly critical or excessively sceptical, worrying too much, and being unable to see the forest for the trees.

Mars in the Twelfth House

Mars may have a hard time expressing its outgoing assertive energy in the introspective twelfth house.  Sometimes it indicates difficulty arising from repressed anger or a sexual secret that has been part of your development.  Your energy flows naturally toward twelfth house matters and may find a constructive outlet in health care, research, hospital or prison work, charitable activities, public welfare work, occupations connected with the arts, psychotherapy, religious interests, or any field that provides service or enlightenment to others.  Most likely you will need time to yourself for reflection, prayer, and meditation.  There is often an interest in the unconscious mind and an empathic ability to understand other people.

Many with this position have a talent for writing, music, dance, film, photography, poetry, art, fashion, design, or other creative activities.  Some direct their energies toward evangelistic, philosophical, psychic, spiritual, mystical, mythical, or occult matters.  It is not uncommon to find yourself working in a large institution where people can spend time in seclusion, confinement, study, prayer, or quiet contemplation.

Jupiter in Scorpio

Jupiter, the fifth planet from the sun, is the king of Mount Olympus and the most benefic of all the planets.  Jupiter represents expansion, wisdom, the higher mind, and the broadening of horizons.  The sign and house placements of Jupiter show how and where we encounter good fortune and continue to grow in body, mind, and spirit.

Jupiter occupying Scorpio enhances your willpower, perseverance, resourcefulness, and love of challenge and competition.  Placed in the sign of Mars and Pluto, Jupiter gives great emotional intensity, personal magnetism, and faith in oneself.  In extreme cases, this position may reflect megalomaniac tendencies of Napoleonic proportion.  There is often a strong interest in delving profoundly into the nature of things, whether it be investigation related to basic science research, unconscious fantasy, unsolved mysteries, the occult, or paranormal phenomena.  Sometimes this interest in probing, cutting, and penetrating leads to occupations as diverse as surgeon, butcher, miner, mortician, or even bullfighter.  The Mars rulership of Scorpio may draw you to work involving danger, risk, or vigorous physical activity, such as police or military work, competitive sports, firefighting, or anything involving the use of weapons, sharp instruments, or mechanical devices.

Because Scorpio governs the reproductive organs, one's sexuality and a fondness for pleasure may be reflected in the choice of career.  Scorpio is also associated with occupations having to do with death and dying, rebirth, recycling, destruction, demolition, elimination, restoration, recycling, and regeneration.  Healers with this position seek to relieve the suffering of those who have undergone abuse, loss, or trauma.  This position is common among successful physicians, surgeons, dentists, psychologists, hypnotists, engineers, and chemists.  It is also seen in the charts of machinists, mechanics, railroad officials, salvage and repair workers, and people involved with vehicles and transportation (especially by sea).  Scorpio is a financial sign and Jupiter here may lead to success in banking, accounting, investing, or similar endeavours.  There may also be an interest in matters that are hidden, secret, occult, or mysterious.

Jupiter in the Second House

You can gain financially through Jupiter-related pursuits such as publishing, literature, philosophy, religion, law, teaching, editing, publishing, broadcasting, and foreign interests.  Your career may involve aircraft, flight, long-distance travel, or contacts abroad.  This position is common in the charts of authors, poets, artists, photographers, educators, executives, bankers, lawyers, judges, and religious leaders.  You are able to anticipate or forecast future trends, and you may do well at speculative or entrepreneurial ventures.  Jupiter here gives an exuberance that finds an outlet in sports, adventure, exploration, musical conducting or composition, performance, entertainment, or work outdoors.  Jupiter's co-rulership of Pisces may indicate an interest in hospital work, medicine, pharmaceuticals, mental health, astrology, occult subjects, or matters related to film, chemicals, drugs, alcohol, oils, gases, liquids, or the sea.  People with a second house Jupiter often make money through their singularly creative musical, artistic, or literary talent.  Some with this position are born into or marry into wealth.

Saturn in Libra

Saturn, the sixth planet from the Sun, is the most distant planet that can be seen by the naked eye.  It marks the outer limits of the visible solar system and has been called at various times the Cosmic Teacher, Father Time, and the Grim Reaper.  Saturn symbolises limitations, hardships, boundaries, fears, and the lessons we must learn.  Like all good teachers, Saturn rewards hard work, discipline, and persistent effort.

Saturn is exalted in Libra where it heightens your sense of social responsibility.  You understand the importance of co-operation and commitment in partnerships and close relationships.  You have a keen appreciation of fairness and justice that could make you a fine judge, attorney, counsellor, mediator, or arbitrator.  Organisational and administrative ability are common.  Because Libra has to do with relationships between equals, your work may involve contractual agreements, legal disputes, or adversarial wrangles.  Libra is often prominent in the charts of generals, and it is not uncommon with the position to have an interest in military matters.

Saturn in the First House

A first house Saturn lends a serious, responsible, and dutiful cast to your personality.  You are likely to be a diligent, self-disciplined, and perhaps a bit shy.  As a worker, you are methodical, persistent, good with details, and determined to get the job done.  You may eventually be recognised as an expert in your field.  Many of your lessons in life come from the school of hard knocks.  You are committed to excellence in the workplace, and you may prefer an executive position where you can be your own boss.  Most likely you have a good head for business and management. Teaching ability is also common.


In our solar system, Saturn is most distant planet from the earth that is visible to the naked eye.  The three outer planets -- Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto -- lie beyond Saturn's orbit and can only be seen by telescope.  These outer planets spend many years travelling through each sign, and thus they tend to affect an entire generation.  Only their house placements and close aspects are significant in the interpretation of an individual horoscope.  Though not personally significant by itself, the sign placement of the three outer planets can reinforce similar traits found elsewhere in the horoscope.

Uranus in the Third House

Uranus is the first planet beyond Saturn's orbit and outside the boundary of the visible solar system.  It symbolises breaking through barriers via originality, inventiveness, and progressive ideas.  Uranus reveals where we can express our novelty and uniqueness.

You possess an inventive and original mind, often with a capacity for understanding scientific or technical matters.  You are quick to grasp new ideas and have frequent flashes of insight.  Your highly individual manner of making sense of your perceptions can lead to breakthroughs in thinking.  Income may be earned through your unique and creative way of viewing reality.

Uranus in Sagittarius

Uranus in Sagittarius marks a generation with unique and progressive ideas about freedom, science, religion, philosophy, sports, higher education, travel, foreign affairs, and other languages and cultures.

Neptune in the Third House

Neptune is the ancient god of the oceans, which are fluid, without form, and boundless.  It dissolves the limitations set up by Saturn.  This planet symbolises all that is cloudy, nebulous, dreamlike, mystical, or illusory.  Neptune represents compassion, intuition, empathy, sacrifice, and spiritual development.  The placement of Neptune reveals where we may care for others, pursue our ideals, and be at one with the universe.

A third house Neptune indicates a highly intuitive mind and a keen imagination.  There is often a talent for creative writing and an interest in occult, otherworldly, mysterious, psychic, transcendental, or spiritual matters.  You may enjoy travel abroad or activities related to water or the sea.   A fondness for art, literature, poetry, dance, or any form of graceful movement is also common.  Many with this position enjoy learning about dreams, hypnosis, intuition, the unconscious, and the workings of the human mind.

If Neptune forms any aspect with Saturn, you are likely to have considerable talent for scientific or medical work.  In afflicted charts, a third house Neptune can indicate nebulous, strange, or delusional thinking that may lead to unsettling behaviour which is potentially harmful to self or others.

Neptune in Sagittarius

You belong to a generation that is idealistic and has a strong interest in religion, philosophy, spirituality, and higher learning.

Pluto in the First House

Pluto is the ancient god of the underworld who ruled the realm of death and darkness.  It represents immense power, transformation, radical change, renewal, and rebirth.  The placement of Pluto reveals where we express our needs for control and regeneration.

Pluto rising lends great emotional intensity to your personality.  You may be drawn to careers in which you can radically transform other people or the environment.  Pluto tears down and destroys in order to rebuild.  There is often an interest in medicine, psychology, healing, detective work, research, investigation, spirituality, the occult, or matters connected with death and dying.  You like to probe, cut, and penetrate beneath the surface.  Like the Scorpion, which is ruled by Pluto, your words and actions may carry a venomous sting.  The intense energy of Pluto often finds expression in sports, sex, or other vigorous activities.  Pluto here can also incline toward extreme behaviour and may confer a desire to have power and control over others.

North Node in Cancer

The Moon's North Node reveals areas of potential for growth.

In Cancer, the Moon's North Node advises you to become more aware of your feelings and learn how to relate to others on an emotional level. You need to balance your career ambitions with your devotion to family and other close relationships.  Often there is a history of having felt unsupported in childhood -- which can sometimes lead to cynicism, bigotry, or an excessive need to be admired or regarded as superior by others.  You would do well to develop your empathy and compassion for others.

North Node in the Tenth House

In the tenth house, the Moon's Node suggests that you pursue your ambition to achieve recognition and public status by making your unique and lasting mark upon the world.  By concentrating your effort on your career goals, you can rise to a position of leadership, authority, expertise, prominence, or championship. The challenge of this position is to maintain your integrity and to avoid seeking notoriety for less than honourable public deeds.

Part of Fortune in Leo

The Lot of Fortune is an Arabic Part related to material well-being.

With the Part of Fortune in Leo, you can succeed in fields that allow for self-projection, creative self-expression, and "doing your own thing."  You may wish to be your own boss or to work in an atmosphere where you are in charge of what is happening.  Your leadership ability and organisational skills can lead to a position of great responsibility.  This placement is common among political leaders, actors, performing artists, entertainers, stockbrokers, self-employed professionals, airline pilots, CEOs, competitive athletes, and others who like to call their own shots. There is often a fondness for children that may suggest a career as in teaching, education, or child welfare.  A knack for fashion, jewellery, and adornment is often in evidence.

Part of Fortune in the Tenth House

The house position of the Part of Fortune reveals an area of life that can bring you good fortune.  In the tenth house, it raises the possibility of rising to a position of prominence, authority, or renown in your field.  You may be drawn to work in an executive or managerial capacity, and you could do well in the corporate world.  There is some risk with this position of trying to find the easy road to fame and fortune.  Many opportunities will come your way, but you will truly succeed only if you put in the hard work and persistent effort to reach your goals.

Balance of Elements and Modalities

Introversion and Extraversion

The follow section takes a broad look at your chart from the viewpoint of the predominance of the four elements or temperaments (Fire, Earth, Air, and Water) and the three modalities or modes of action (Cardinal or initiating, Fixed or stabilising, Mutable or adapting and transitioning).  It draws on Jungian psychology and Jung's notions of introversion and extraversion to describe how the same astrological trait manifests for introverted versus extraverted personalities.

Introverts are inwardly directed, prefer to work alone or with a small number of people, generally reflect before they act, and would rather read about or ponder an issue than socialise or talk with others.  Extraverts show the opposite characteristics.  Extraverts are outwardly directed and come across as sociable, positive, outgoing, and confident.  They love to talk and socialise, and they prefer to be with others rather than alone.

The value in determining whether you are more introverted or more extraverted is that the same astrological factors can be utilised to pursue different careers depending on whether you are focused inwardly (introverted) or outwardly (extraverted).  For example, a person with a preponderance of the element water/feeling in his or her chart might prefer to write and publish poetry, if introverted, or might use that water element to become a successful actor or performing musician if extraverted.

If you have access to the Internet, you might wish to take the Keirsey Temperament Sorter Quiz to determine your degree of introversion and extraversion.  It is located at where you can also read about the career implications of your personality style.

Having decided whether you are more introverted or extraverted, read the following section to see which elements and modalities are most emphasised in your natal chart.

Abundant Air

Keywords: communicative, verbal, abstract, logical, objective, theoretical, mental, socially aware, interactive, idea- and relationship-oriented.

Air signs are drawn to careers in which they can play with ideas and think abstractly or conceptually.  They like to deal with the relationships among people, ideas, or situations.  They easily acquire, analyse, weigh, and evaluate information.  Air signs represent idea people who are skilled communicators.  Air likes to circulate and needs lots of social contact and interactions.  Air people like to work in settings with a lot of activity and a light-hearted atmosphere where they can talk with others, ask questions, share ideas, write things down, and receive mental and social stimulation.  They like variety in the workplace and want to make their mark on the world through their intelligent, graceful, or clever way of doing things.

An abundance of air in a chart correlates with the Jungian function of thinking.  Like Mr. Spock of StarTrek, thought, reason, principles, objectivity, and logic guide you.  You have an appreciation of the law of cause and effect, and you take a long-term, historical view of events and situations. Your approach to problem solving is organised, systematic, thoughtful, and analytical.  Most likely you also have administrative ability.  Unless water is strong in your chart, you are likely to be somewhat lacking in the feeling function and will need to work on developing your emotional awareness.

Introverted thinkers are drawn toward careers where they can develop or elaborate scientific or philosophical theories.  They are conceptual thinkers who enjoy seeing relationships and logical interconnections among various elements and basic assumptions of their theoretical system. Many mathematicians, theoretical scientists, writers, teachers, philosophers, and composers of orchestral music belong to this group.

Extraverted thinkers like to apply their systematic, organised, and conceptual thinking to the external world.  They are drawn to careers such as engineering, administration, management, and the law.  They like to bring order and efficient functioning to the world around them.  Some literally work with air in fields like aviation and meteorology.

Abundant Life

Keywords: outgoing, assertive, energetic, adventurous, enthusiastic, self-expressive, active, pioneering, freedom-loving, creative, intuitive, expansive, future-oriented.

An emphasis on houses 1, 5, and 9 indicates a need for independence, creative self-expression, and a broadening of horizons through expanded awareness.  You generally like to make your own decisions and to be your own boss rather than assume a subordinate position.  Your career should allow scope for creativity, risk-taking, following up on your hunches, and motivating others.  Your vitality, energy, drive, and enthusiasm are keys to success in your work.  Many successful performers, politicians, entrepreneurs, salespersons, and athletes have this pattern in their charts.

Planets in Aspect

Introduction to Aspects

As mentioned in the Introduction, the planets signify fundamental urges, drives, or functions of the human personality.  Astrologers have discovered that when planets either align (conjoin) or form certain configurations (angular patterns) with one another, a blending or combination of their energies occurs.  These patterns are called "aspects" and are measured in terms of the angles formed by the planets.

The aspects are divided into major (0, 60, 90, 120, and 180 degrees) or minor (all other aspects, e.g., 30, 45, 72, 135, 144, 150 degrees, etc.). Major aspects are more evident and generally have a more profound effect on personality and vocation.  The names of the aspects, according to the number of degrees between planets, are as follows.  Major: 0 = conjunction, 60 = sextile, 90 = square, 120 = trine, and 180 = opposition. Minor: 30 = semi-sextile, 45 = semi-square, 72 = quintile, 135 = sesquiquadrate, 144 = biquintile, and 150 = inconjunct, or more properly the quincunx.

Aspects can be either easy or difficult.  Of the major aspects, the sextile (60 degrees) and trine (120 degrees) are considered easy or harmonious whereas the square (90 degrees) and opposition (180 degrees) are considered difficult or stressful.  The conjunction can be either easy or difficult depending on the nature of the planets involved.  A planet involved in difficult aspects is considered "afflicted" since it carries some form of hardship through the difficult aspect.

In the next section, you will find a detailed description of the most significant aspects in your chart.  At first reading, the large amount of material in this section may seem a bit overwhelming.  Rather than get lost in the details, look for repeated themes that reinforce or clarify the earlier sections of this report.

The aspect descriptions below are arranged in order of "strength," which is a measure of whether the aspect is major (stronger) or minor (weaker) and how close the planets are to being at exactly the angle specified by the aspect.  The closer the aspect is to exact, the stronger its influence is likely to be.  However, if the planets involved in the aspect are strongly emphasised in your chart, then even a weak aspect between them can be quite significant.

Sun conjunct Mercury  (Strength:  5.39)

When Mercury conjoins the Sun, there is a potential for overvaluing your own opinions and thus becoming too dogmatic or rigid in your beliefs.  In this way, personal feelings can cloud your objectivity.  Often there is a talent for intense concentration in pursuing a goal or an area of study or research.  Your memory is good and you may have mathematical ability.  You tend to be self-assured and independent in your thinking.  Your dramatic flair and sense of colour may find an outlet in literary, journalistic, theatrical, musical, or artistic expression.  This aspect favours occupations that involve agility, manual dexterity, communication, teaching, dealing with the public, and the exercise of authority.

Mars square Neptune  (Strength:  4.70)

Mars/Neptune aspects join the vigorous libidinal drive of Mars with the dreamy imaginative nature of Neptune.  This frequently produces physical grace and beauty, and is common in the charts of notably handsome men and beautiful women.  It also enhances one's creative, poetic, and dramatic abilities.  A talent for athletics, dance, and other forms of energetic movement is not uncommon.  Used constructively, this energy can lead to success in music, singing, sports, theatre, film, drama, design, creative writing, literary criticism, or the arts.  The energy of Mars combined with the intuition of Neptune may indicate a talent for occupations involving psychology, spirituality, metaphysical studies, stock market investing, or any kind of work that requires "second sight" or "listening with the third ear."  In afflicted charts, there may be a problem with low self-esteem, alcohol or substance abuse, sexual addiction, escapist behaviours, or difficulties involving the feet.  You would be wise to avoid mind-altering substances.

Mercury conjunct Uranus  (Strength:  3.55)

Mercury/Uranus aspects indicate an original mind and a flair for bold and independent thinking.  You value personal liberty and intellectual freedom.  There is often creative or inventive ability, a talent for mathematics or technology, a natural sense of rhythm and timing, a capacity for abstract thinking, and a bit of personal eccentricity.  You tend to be a progressive thinker with a strong sense of pride, autonomy, and self-will.  In extreme cases, however, there is a risk of becoming fanatically attached to your own opinions.  This conjunction is common in the charts of astronomers, astrologers, social activists, psychiatrists, research scientists, theoreticians, mathematicians, musicians, computer scientists, and physicists.

Venus trine Mars  (Strength:  3.29)

Venus/Mars aspects often indicate an attractive physical appearance and a fondness for exercise and keeping in shape.  The physical drive of Mars is filtered through the grace and poise of Venus.  You may be able to use your good looks, charm, and sex appeal to further your career. There is often an enjoyment of music and dance, and a fondness for directing one's physical energy into graceful sports, theatrical performance, or artistic endeavours.  Some with this position are especially fond of cars, motorcycles, and other types of vehicles or mechanical devices.

Jupiter trine Midheaven  (Strength:  3.16)

Jupiter closely aspecting the Midheaven makes one proud, ambitious, expansive, optimistic, independent, and adventurous.  There is often leadership ability, a lust for life, courage, and a fair amount of personal vanity.  Some with this position have a commanding presence, exude an air of expertise or authority, and enjoy putting on a grand performance.  In the Gauquelin research, a prominent Jupiter was common in the charts of actors, politicians, journalists, and playwrights.  When combined with a strong Mars, a prominent Jupiter favoured executive and military positions.  Jupiter, however, tended to be weak in the charts of physicians and scientists whose charts instead showed a strong Mars and Saturn.

Through its rulership of Sagittarius, Jupiter may give an interest in higher education, philosophy, religion, the law, social science, long-distance travel, exploration, publishing, broadcasting, forecasting, sports, the outdoors, and foreign languages or cultures.  Through its co-rulership of Pisces, Jupiter may indicate careers related to illusion, art, music, song, film, dance, writing, creative imagination, chemicals, drugs, alcohol, spirituality, mysticism, divination, charity, healing, mental health, psychology, hospital or prison work, or caring for the ill or disadvantaged members of society.

Jupiter conjunct Pluto  (Strength:  2.95)

Jupiter conjunct Pluto increases your ambition, determination, and leadership. A desire for power and ability to influence others are frequently present.  You are hard driving and can rise to a position of prominence in your field.  There is often healing ability and an interest in working with those suffering from mental illness, abuse, oppression, or trauma.  A knack for matters related to money and finance is common.  You are able to organise and manage large projects, and you may have an interest in law, economics, languages, culture, and social reform.  This aspect occurs regularly in the charts of individuals who have achieved unique musical, literary, psychological, philosophical, pedagogical, religious, or athletic accomplishments.  There is often a fascination with matters that are secret, hidden, mysterious, paranormal, or occult.

Sun semi-square Venus  (Strength:  1.43)

Sun/Venus contacts suggest an affectionate, cheerful, and warm-hearted disposition.  There is often musical or artistic ability, a strong sense of style and refinement, a love of beauty, and a fondness for music and dance.  When Venus, the goddess of love, touches the Sun, she brings out the more feminine aspects of the personality.  In a woman this typically presents as grace, charm, elegance, and a bit of vanity.  In a man, this can manifest as a preference for solitude and a degree of timidity or sensitivity that he may conceal behind a facade of bravado.

Saturn conjunct Pluto  (Strength:  1.32)

Saturn/Pluto aspects indicate that you have the necessary tenacity, endurance, and self-discipline to reach your goals.  You are a hard worker with courage and leadership ability.  Your career may involve power, control, governance, regulation, money, investigation, secret matters, research, psychological insight, or the disciplined use of force.  You realise the importance of keeping physically fit.  Athletes with this aspect often achieve prominence in their sport.

Uranus sextile Ascendant  (Strength:  1.30)

Uranus aspecting the Ascendant reveals a person who is progressive, free thinking, independent, and sometimes a bit eccentric or revolutionary. Tradition and orthodoxy do not bind you.  Instead, you are capable of novel insights and you appreciate alternative ways of viewing reality.  Health care workers with this aspect often utilise techniques of alternative or non-traditional medicine (e.g., meditation, hypnosis, acupuncture, etc.). There may be a talent for science, mathematics, chemistry, technology, electronics, or computer-related subjects.  Your capacity for objective and impartial thinking can lead to success as a counsellor, advisor, social scientist, political activist, attorney, social worker, psychologist, or psychiatrist.  A prominent Uranus is also common in the charts of astrologers and others with New Age, unorthodox, or occult interests.  The main problem with this aspect is a tendency to be stubborn and fixed in your opinions as well as a proneness to say or do shocking things that upset or surprise other people.


Our careers undergo cyclic changes that parallel the movement of Saturn through the birth chart.  The 29-1/2 year Saturn cycle can be divided into four 7-1/3-year quarter cycles.  As Saturn crosses the IC at the bottom of the chart, we begin to ride the wave upward from a period of subjective preoccupation and worldly obscurity to a new cycle of vocational growth.  During the first and second quarters, which last just under 15 years, we establish, build, and develop our new career directions.  When Saturn then crosses the MC at the top of the chart, we reach a career peak and consolidate our gains.  We are now on the downward slope of the wave (the third and fourth quarters of this Saturn cycle). About seven years after Saturn conjoins the MC, we go through another period of intense vocational activity, just as Saturn is crossing into the final quarter, which is a seven-year stretch of relative obscurity, inner reflection and reassessment.  We then start a new 29-1/2 year career cycle as Saturn again crosses the IC.  The section below gives specific details based on a horoscope cast for your date, time, and place of birth.

In 1940, Grant Lewi published his groundbreaking analysis of Saturn's influence on career.  Saturn takes about 29-1/2 years to complete a journey around the zodiac.  During the time when Saturn crosses the 4th house cusp or IC (the "bottommost" or "darkest" point in the horoscope), Lewi noted that people "either fade completely from the picture, or take a new start in life, depending on their age and other considerations" in the chart.  This is similar to a New Moon, a time of darkness and new beginnings.

During the period from 1970 to 2050 covered in this report, the approximate dates of Saturn's passage through CAPRICORN are FEBRUARY 1988 - FEBRUARY 1991, then DECEMBER 2017 - DECEMBER 2020, and finally JANUARY 2047 - JANUARY 2050.  At some point during these years Saturn will cross your IC, marking the end stages of a period of vocational obscurity.  Saturn's passage through the sign at the bottom of your chart SIGNALS A NEW BEGINNING OR A CHANGE OF DIRECTION IN YOUR CAREER.

Astrologer Don Jacobs further elaborated Lewi's findings.  According to Jacobs, the first quarter cycle (the 7-1/3-years when Saturn is travelling through roughly the fourth, fifth, and sixth houses as it approaches a square to the Midheaven) is a time of career "building."  During this first phase we are establishing a new career or laying the foundations for a new direction in our current occupation.  Jacobs calls the second quarter cycle (the next 7-1/3-years, beginning when Saturn squares the Midheaven to transit roughly the seventh, eighth, and ninth houses) the period of "triumph" when the efforts of the period of building are starting to pay off.

About 14 1/2 years after crossing the IC or fourth house cusp, Saturn reaches the Midheaven, the "highest" and "brightest" point of the horoscope. This is similar to a Full Moon and marks a peak in our career development.  IN YOUR CHART, A CAREER PEAK WILL OCCUR WHEN SATURN PASSES THROUGH CANCER, the sign on your Midheaven.  During the period from 1970 to 2050 covered in this report, the approximate dates of Saturn's passage through CANCER are AUGUST 1973 - JUNE 1976, then JUNE 2003 - JULY 2005, and finally JULY 2032 - MAY 2035.  These years are a time of achievement, accomplishment, harvest, recognition, and the assumption of new responsibilities. You reap the rewards of all the work you have done for the past fourteen years.  However, if you have cut corners or prepared badly, the time has now come to pay the piper.

After passing the Midheaven, Saturn goes through a roughly 7-1/3-year period when it transits the tenth, eleventh, and twelfth houses (the third quarter cycle) as it approaches a square to the Midheaven.  Jacobs calls this the period of "coasting" when we enjoy the fruits of our career success at the Midheaven.  The final 7-1/3-year period commences with Saturn's square to the Midheaven and continues as it transits the first, second, and third houses.  Jacobs calls this the period of "obscurity" when we become self-absorbed and directed inward, contemplating our lives and thinking about future possibilities.  This subjective, inner period ends when Saturn again crosses the IC and begins a new cycle.

Prominent Chart Factors


The following section lists the most prominent or active planets, points (Ascendant and Midheaven), signs, and houses in your horoscope. Because the houses are determined by the exact time of birth, dominant houses are not calculated for charts with unknown birth times. You naturally tend to express the energy and symbolism of these planets, signs, and houses in most aspects of your life, including your vocation.  The rating system used here is based on the number and closeness of the aspects formed by each of the planets and points.

The dominant planets and points (Ascendant, Midheaven) reveal your basic drives and natural aptitudes that can be developed for their career potential.  Below are descriptions of the planets and points that are most active in your horoscope.

Pluto Dominant  (Strength:  10.20)

Pluto indicates an urge to penetrate beneath the surface to achieve a deep understanding of other people or of anything that is secret or occult. You enjoy bringing hidden matters to light.  An interest in power, money, control, manipulation, healing, the use of force, depth psychology, psychic phenomena, sexuality, and the mysteries of life and death are common.  Raw energy, power, and animal magnetism are likely to be reflected in your career.  Your own appreciation or experience of the depths of human suffering may influence your career path.

Pluto is active in the charts of those whose work involves insurance, finance, banking, economics, money management, investigation, accounting, mathematics, technology, chemicals, munitions, explosives, nuclear power, physics, or scientific research.  Prominent members of the recording and broadcasting industries often have this factor in their charts.  This factor is also found among those whose work requires group co-operation, managers of franchises, and writers who produce works that are part of a series.

If Pluto is involved in many stressful aspects, you may have a tendency to be dictatorial or to become the brunt of coercive conditions in the workplace.  To achieve success, you will need to master any inclination toward manipulative or obsessive-compulsive behaviour.

Mars Dominant  (Strength:  9.76)

A prominent Mars indicates energy, ambition, assertiveness, leadership, daring, enthusiasm, self-motivation, and an ability to motivate others. Mars represents a hard-headed masculine energy that can lead to success in fields like surgery, sports, engineering, psychology, science, finance, investigation, police work, legal prosecution, forensics, munitions, firefighting, or any area -- physical or intellectual -- that involves cutting, penetration, competition, taking charge, muscular exertion, athletic ability, sexual prowess, swift energetic motion, or the use of force or violence. Mars governs fire, iron and steel, and occupations that utilise precision cutting tools, combustion, explosives, weapons, or mechanical devices. Mars excels at tasks that require initiative and independent enterprise.  The Gauquelin research found a strong Mars in the charts of executives, soldiers, physicians, scientists, sports champions, and business leaders who started their own firms.

If Mars is engaged in stressful aspects, you need to guard against acting too rashly, impulsively, selfishly, or aggressively on the job.  Make a special effort to respect the rights of others.

Mercury Dominant  (Strength:  9.54)

You are a gifted communicator who is versatile, adaptable, clever, witty, and intellectually curious.  There is often an interest in books, writing, editing, publishing, scholarship, criticism, teaching, training, examining, lecturing, educating, editing, travel, networking, and similar endeavours. You do well at conveying messages or information to others and could have a knack for sales, reporting, journalism, computers, and various forms of communication.  Physical agility, manual dexterity, and good eye-hand co-ordination are common and might lead to a career involving rapid accurate movements.  Mercury can also indicate talent for scientific, medical, therapeutic, technical, or computer-related work.

If Mercury is involved in many stressful aspects, you may have a tendency to worry, scatter your energies, and engage yourself in useless trivia on the job.


The signs of the zodiac indicate basic motivations, preferences, attitudes, and reaction patterns.  Below is a list of the most active signs in your horoscope in descending order of their dominance in your chart.

Sagittarius Dominant  (Strength:  136.33)

Key Phrases:  I understand, I enlighten, I aspire

Sagittarius, the Archer, is straightforward, freewheeling, fun loving, expansive, optimistic, visionary, intellectual, self-indulgent, and philosophical. Individuals with a prominent Sagittarius like to expand their horizons, often through frequent changes, travel, education, the exploration of ideas, interactions with others, and contacts with foreign countries or with people of different backgrounds.  They enjoy variety, value their freedom, and may have difficulty committing to a single person or to a steady routine.  There is often a wanderlust that accompanies their desire not to be confined or fenced in.  Jupiter, Sagittarius' ruling planet, confers general good luck and an ability to foresee future trends.

Sagittarian persons are able to abstract from a situation, take a broad view, and see the larger perspective, but they may be weak on working with the details.  They commonly enjoy challenge, adventure, exploration, learning, variety, and risk-taking.  They also enjoy competitive sports, physical activity, amorous adventures, and speculative endeavours.  There is typically an interest in religion, spirituality, higher education, philosophy, languages, publishing, broadcasting, and similar endeavours.  Sagittarius has an ability to inspire or uplift others, which can make them excellent teachers, ministers, or promoters of ideas.  They do well selling to others whatever they believe in.

Typical Sagittarian careers include priest, evangelist, teacher, lawyer, judge, professor, academic, travel agent, importer/exporter, naval officer, pilot, linguist, author, publisher, ambassador, broadcaster, marketer, city planner, publicist, promoter, athlete, horse trainer, fire-fighter, theologian, philosopher, and spiritualist.

Libra Dominant  (Strength:  102.74)

Key Phrases:  I balance, I relate, I mediate, I make peace

Libra, the Scales, is a sign of balance, harmony, proportion, partnership, sociability, union, and the adjusting of relationships.  Since Libra is strong in your chart, others are likely to view you as co-operative, civil, refined, thoughtful, charming, artistic, diplomatic, peaceable, and somewhat wavering or indecisive. You have a highly developed sense of fair play and generally prefer to avoid confrontation.  There is often a talent for counselling, mediation, negotiation, networking, arbitration, politics, peacemaking, or diplomacy.  You could also do well in a career that allows you to take on clients or to work on behalf of others or for the public welfare.  Exchanging ideas and interacting with others come naturally to you.  Because Libra is a Cardinal sign, you might be interested in positions of authority and leadership.

Through its ruler Venus, Libra is associated with style, grace, form, and physical beauty and may indicate an interest in fashion, the arts, literature, popular writing, entertainment, film, music, modelling, buying and selling, or the beauty industries.  Your ability to strategize and see all sides of an issue could bring success in the legal, judicial, or military professions.  You excel at perceiving relationships and manipulating ideas.  Typical Libran occupations include psychologist, judge, lawyer, prosecuting attorney, author, art dealer, designer, beautician, decorator, graphic artist, host or hostess, performer, dancer, model, negotiator, diplomat, referee, auditor, accountant, sculptor, architect, and theoretical mathematician.

Capricorn Dominant  (Strength:  70.54)

Key Phrases:  I use, I control, I strive, I organise

Capricorn is cautious, pragmatic, ambitious, scrupulous, disciplined, conservative, dependable, reserved, organised, and hardworking. Individuals with and active Capricorn want to rise to the top and often seek positions of leadership, power, authority, honour, control, and responsibility.  They can do well at business, administration, banking, bureaucracy, government, or at one of the traditional professions, which satisfy their need for status, command, and respect in their community.  They tend to be responsible and serious and may strike others as shy, pessimistic, or aloof.  Despite their serious streak, Capricorn persons have a good sense of humour and may possess comedic talent. Capricorn's capacity for persistent effort, attention to detail, and systematic methodology can lead to success in one of the applied sciences.

Capricorn's planet, Saturn, governs structure, time, tradition, self-discipline, caution, limits, efficiency, durability, antiquity, the reality principle, loneliness, hard work, guilt, and punishment.  Capricorn needs security and respects authority, tradition, and the laws of society. With Capricorn strong, you could excel in any career that demands "head over heart" type of thinking.  Because Capricorn governs the skin, bones, knees, and teeth, doctors with a strong Capricorn are often drawn to these areas of specialisation.  Since Mars is exalted in Capricorn, a prominent Capricorn is common in charts of athletes who excel in sports that require discipline and long hours of training.

Typical Capricorn occupations include administrator, manager, boss, organiser, industrialist, engineer, dentist, orthopaedist, economist, geologist, antique dealer, farmer, miner, mason, builder, construction worker, scientist, mathematician, sociologist, computer programmer, teacher, coach, political leader, supervisor, and law enforcement officer.


The dominant houses in your horoscope reveal the environments that have special importance for you and the areas of life to which you devote most of your energy.  Below is a list of the most active houses in your horoscope in descending order of their dominance in your chart.

Third House Dominant  (Strength:  136.33)

You have a way with words and enjoy tasks that require versatility, physical agility, communication, writing, drawing, drafting, the use of language, the relaying of messages, learning, teaching, and intellectual challenge.  Your work may involve manual dexterity, transport, moving about, or being on the go.  Making contacts in your local community is an important part of your daily routine.  You may have a talent for work with computers, communication devices, or vehicles of conveyance.  Your career must allow you to satisfy your abiding curiosity about the world.  An active third house can signify anyone whose work entails conveying information or messages to others-- e.g., teachers, lecturers, writers, singers, editors, printers, mail handlers, airline pilots, and so on.

First House Dominant  (Strength:  60.74)

You do well at activities that involve initiative, self-assertion, energetic physical activity, and projecting the force of your personality.  With your pioneering spirit, you find it important to be able to speak your mind and do your own thing in vocational endeavours.  You have a clear sense of your personal boundaries and you are willing to stand up for your beliefs and your rights as an individual.  You tend to relate well to the general public.  A prominent first house is common in charts of those who make active use of their bodies in their work -- e.g., athletes, models, dancers, gymnasts, boxers, wrestlers, swimmers, golfers, tennis players, rock musicians, manual labourers, carpenters, mechanics, physical education instructors, bodybuilders, personal trainers, martial artists, and so on.

Fifth House Dominant  (Strength:  46.44)

You have a good sense of humour and enjoy having a good time.  You readily devote yourself to creative forms of self-expression and may be drawn to acting, drama, the creative arts, creative writing, music, film, dance, comedy, entertainment, recreation, or matters related to children such as coaching or teaching.  A fascination with the stock market, speculation, money management, competitive sports, or risk-taking is often present.  An interest in hobbies, games, jewellery, adornment, display, pomp, or putting on a grand show is common.
