This is an Astro-Analysis based on the exact time, date, and place of birth calculated on the details supplied.
It is not intended to predict a budding mega-star or a future world leader - the objective is to provide some insights into the psyche of Joan to give everyone concerned a better chance of understanding, and hopefully helping this special child through the difficult growing times that they will face.
The astrological Chart is a little like a jigsaw puzzle without the benefit of a picture to follow. Some pieces are easy to recognise and they fit together beautifully. Another batch might fit well - but seem unrelated to the first "batch". Several straggly bits probably seem to belong to another world altogether, but that is the human psyche. The depths are immeasurable with many, many forms, faces, and dimensions.
Any Astrological chart will have seemingly several contradictions - again - just like human nature and our psychological make-up. But these apparent differences are all shades, shapes, and forms of the full picture. These "contradictions" should be seen as a balancing factor, knocking some of the edges off our sharp corners or, sharpening up the "softness" in the areas defined.
It should also be recognised that all of us have our own very personal lessons to learn in this life and these lessons unfold throughout the span of our entire life on earth. The learning experiences will not be systematic - they will be random episodes and experiences. Some interpretations of this Chart will give a glimpse of these very personal lessons that are an obvious part of this little one's character. Others may be so private or subtle that the child "learns" all by itself. And then there will be further lessons that will not have emerged or even seem significant yet.
It is hoped that the brief explanations throughout this analysis will help to explain the meanings and terminology of basic Astrology to give as much understanding as possible.
The two most valuable things that we can give to any child are our unconditional love and our time.
The following passages give a comprehensive summary of the character traits of this child and a brief description of each section explains the specifics. It has been kept simple deliberately because, as mentioned in the introduction, Astrology is a complex subject, and the intention is to clarify, not confuse.

Planets in Signs and Houses
Sun in Gemini, Moon in Sagittarius
The "SUN SIGN" is the one part of the Astrological Chart that most people know. It is the inner core that drives and motivates us. It is our own true light. When we read and discuss our Sun signs we can easily recognise bits that fit, and maybe, question bits that do not seem to apply. The contrast noted is often related to the power of the other luminary - the Moon.
The Moon is our instinctive response. It reflects our earliest conditioning. The Moon governs our emotional responses, - our likes and dislikes - our innate sensitivities. Often the Moon sign is related to the maternal influence, or perhaps, the general home environment.
Both the Sun and the Moon are the two major players. When in a very different sign this does complicate the projected personality. This can be an essential but difficult learning curve that can be confusing for all concerned. Our Sun can try so hard to shine only to feel over-shadowed by a powerful, or competitive, Moon. Some of us will need to learn to accept and understand our emotional conditioning and allow the Sun the right to burst through, combining both strengths in a positive way.
This combination attempts to tie together both of these very significant forces and come up with a sharper, more focused picture.
Some signs are very compatible - others compete.
Never underestimate the complexity of all the things of which we are made.
A combination of Air and Fire suggests a charismatic individual who will be a little like an electrical storm - spectacular, awesome and full of surprises. Joan will be full of confidence, the communication skills lively and clever, and capable of being highly persuasive. This is a real live-wire, constantly charged. However, life can be a little like a hot-air balloon ride, too - carried away at the mercy of the elements with little in the way of perspective or boundaries. These kids can be bombastic and insensitive to others. The nature is restless and dogmatic. Accepting commitment can be difficult; finishing off the bright ideas that flood the mind can be a struggle; practicality can be a difficult lesson to learn. Joan can become too much of an opportunist and, like the rolling stone, gather up a whole lot of experiences throughout life, but little in the way of tangible rewards.
The Sun in Gemini and the Moon in Sagittarius makes Joan a child that will be impossible to miss. This child will have the most outgoing of personalities; will talk eagerly with the ability to give a quick and witty answer to the most formidable questions. These kids will be communication personified and will soon become the intellectual "jack of all trades".
However, these kids are outspoken. The nature can be egotistical with a sheer dislike of being corrected or challenged. When under pressure, the attitude can become verbally aggressive, cutting, and quite sarcastic. A few well-chosen words will be effective. Joan will be in far too much of a hurry to worry about being "nice", so will simply say it as it comes out. The word blunt will apply to this combination.
Joan will learn quickly and digest knowledge easily but often the actual interest is quite shallow. There will be an enormous curiosity but that curiosity is easily satisfied and this youngster will move on to the next point of interest. Often this combination can actually miss the point by being in too much of a hurry. Accuracy and the facts can get muddled or not given priority. The clever way out is to "move on" before it is discovered that they do not "know" quite as much as they seem to "know". Great sales ability lies with the Gemini Sun and the Sagittarius Moon.
In many ways Joan will not try to be a "crowd pleaser" even though the actual personality is naturally attractive and will attract friends easily. In many cases, other people will need Joan a whole lot more than Joan will need other people. A natural curiosity about the world and the universe could unfold quite early. Joan will become quite the little philosopher. With this Sun and Moon combination the possibility of a remarkable teacher could be within your midst.
Joan has the Moon in Sagittarius coupled with an Aries Ascendant, which is a highly compatible and useful combination. The attitude will be blunt and sarcastic with little concern for how others think or feel. But the good news is that Joan will come back down to earth quickly. Obviously this fireball does need to learn to be accountable, but be prepared to listen to the logic for any outbursts. There is usually a good reason behind the display, or an interesting "excuse".
A very logical mind will develop as Joan matures, with a real gift for expression. The true power of these two fire signs will show in a passion to compete and win. This is definitely the sign of a responsible leader. Joan will be a person who will gain respect very easily. There will be a wise head that develops, and uncanny ability to "read an audience" with a true knack of being able to impart knowledge effectively and cleverly. Politics is a future that springs to mind in the countless opportunities that could be open to Joan.
However, Joan might not be particularly sensitive. There is though, a certain charm that belongs to this fiery Moon, which helps enormously. Freedom is a keyword here, and these types find any sort of dependency quite scary. They are independent and capable and expect everyone else to be the same.
With the Sagittarius Moon being associated with the maternal figure, it could be that the caregiver is self-assured and knowledgeable - perhaps with a demanding lifestyle or career outside of the home. It could be that this person has little time to spend on traditional nurturing, so consequently Joan soon learns that the way to impress is to be just as clever and smart. Encouragement and sound advice is probably always available, but maybe not when Joan truly needs it. Consequently, the independent, self-seeking trait emerges early.
The Ascendant is the exact degree in the zodiac, which was rising on the horizon at the time of birth. The term Ascendant and Rising sign are the same. Every 4 minutes the degree of the Ascendant changes. This is why it is so important to know the exact time of birth. This is the starting point of the astrological wheel and defines the signs on each house cusp in an anti-clockwise direction.
The actual houses and their meanings are just as important as the signs on the cusp. The sign of the Ascendant is as important as the Sun sign, and its effects are often more obvious to other people. The Ascendant represents how the personality appears to others. Each sign has its own potential strengths, which should be developed, and weaknesses, which should be minimised through understanding.
Joan may run into problems if the rising sign is quite different in nature from the Sun sign. There will be conflict between an element of the inner self and the projected image. So, if any recurring social problems do occur, it is necessary to look within.
The Ascendant in the chart is very important. It indicates the ways in which we interact with the world around us, the energies we put out, and the energies we receive from others.
Aspects to the Ascendant indicate what kinds of interaction we experience with others, the impressions we make on people, and the areas of our life that most involve other people. Often these aspects tell us about ourselves.
Aries the Ram is the Ascendant, or rising sign, that is, the start of the wheel in the chart, for Joan. Imagine the powerful little beast that "rams" through life, and this is the Aries personality. Aries rules the head, or the ego. These children will think in terms of coming first - coming second just never occurs to them. Joan will be the first out of the starting blocks every time. An idea is barely formed before it is put into action and any discussion will be an after-thought. These kids like to compete, especially in one-to-one situations. But they must learn to accept losing gracefully and to compromise now and again. This is sometimes a problem because these kids are so independent and always in so much of a hurry.
As a youngster Joan will truly enjoy play groups or pre-school activities just to keep the mind stimulated. It will also help this child to use some of their relentless energy. This can cause Joan to be impatient. As these kids start to develop, this is something they will have to work on - even if it does drive them mad - to have to wait a bit. These kids will tend to be rash and impulsive, acting first and thinking later. At their best, they are pioneers, but at their worst, they are reckless. Joan will need to learn to be a little more thoughtful.
Much of the valuable energy these children burn is because of a need to prove something. If something can be done a better way, Joan will work to the death to find that way. The ego might be strong, but Joan is not selfish. Joan will be quite happy to share any good results. Joan can, though, have many unfinished symphonies. Boredom sets in quickly and when the initial interest in a project has died, it will just simply be abandoned. To keep Joan on track, toss in a bit of clever imagination to make what is being done more interesting. Besides, if you have lost interest in this masterpiece this child has started - so will they. Ensure that praise is forthcoming for any finished projects.
No matter how they are feeling inside, these kids always try to keep up an image of being totally independent. But sometimes this can be more of a mask than a reality. If this little person feels like being caring, gentle and soft, they should be encouraged to be just that. They need to learn that it is OK. When unhappy, Joan may try to hide it - make a joke about it, letting others think that this big brave kid does not take anything seriously - even pain. This is why it is important that these children do not feel that they have to be big, tough, and strong all of the time.
Remember that Joan will have very strong views. These kids will prefer their own opinions and their own ways of doing things. Joan will fight hard against restrictions or parenting that does not allow for individualism. This child may not fully understand the mechanics of normal and necessary discipline. They will see opposing opinions as a power struggle. Explanations can go a long way in coaxing Joan to stop and think. In many ways, the parents have to dig their toes in to teach this little one to be considerate and co-operative, but if the attitude is too dogmatic, this little Ram will do what they do best. They will simply head-butt all attempts right out of the door. Confrontation will add emphasis to even further confrontation.
Tact is not usually a strong point. These kids say it as they see it. They are usually absolutely honest and will be highly offended if they are not trusted. Joan will shoot from the hip, will shoot straight, and will be quite proud of that fact. This can also upset a few people, but generally, these types are admired for this honest and uncomplicated attitude.
It is likely that the parents will have high expectations for this child to achieve. They will be ambitious for Joan to do well. But this kid with the Arian Ascendant will have their own ideas on just what they want to do and that could cause a few upsets. The family environment should be warm and caring with, perhaps, one parent who is a little more dominant. Or perhaps, where the roles are clearly defined - i.e. one parent brings home the bacon and the other cooks it.
The Ruling Planet in this Chart for Joan is Mars - the ruler of Aries. Pay special attention to the interpretations of the energetic little planet Mars, as this will be a power point of this personality. The House the Planet Mars falls in will give an indication on where the action and initiative will be at its strongest.
Sun in Gemini
The Sun in the Chart is our personal light. It is our vitality, our creativity, and our basic ego. It is the Sun that provokes and promotes emotional security. The Sun represents our individuality. Within the Sun sign is our reason for being, our sense of pride, and our confidence. This is the basis of the search for the real person within. The sign occupied by the Sun at birth describes the nature of these basic drives and patterns. It describes the desire to be important to the people that matter and the ability to be independent and self-reliant. It will give us an indication of the methods used to develop psychologically.
The House will describe the areas of life that will be important and play a major role in our lives. It is here that we have the tools and the gifts to use as they were intended. But we may have to learn some vital lessons before this happens.
Much more is revealed by the aspects to the Sun. Positive aspects (trines, conjunctions or sextiles) are good indicators of self-reliance, confidence and the ability to stand on one's own two feet. The difficult aspects (squares, oppositions, and inconjunctions) will suggest psychological problems which can have a profound effect on life. However, learning to deal with these difficulties ultimately produces strength and understanding of the self. The rewards of working through these problems are great. The efforts will be productive. Sure, work is needed, but it is worth the effort. However, whenever the planet Saturn brushes up against the Sun, it will suppress and depress the energy of the most exuberant Sun sign.
The Sun is the "self", the "life path", the "true" personality behind all the facades and defences we all put up.
The child will start to grow into the Sun sign during adolescence which can be another reason why these years can be so dramatic and traumatic - this is just another set of growing pains that we all have to endure. The actual Sun sign is often not fully developed until nearer 30 years of age, but the inner spirit will emerge and glimpses will be seen throughout the growing years.
Joan has the Sun in the sign of Gemini, the Twins. These kids are lively, clever, amusing and very entertaining, but exhausting! They learn quickly but they also tune out and get bored very quickly. The mind needs constant stimulation. Joan will fire questions at a mile a minute. These kids want to know everything about everything, but if the answers do not come quick enough, Joan will launch into another subject, another question, while you are still probably trying to find the original answer. Joan will learn to talk quite early, and be warned, once started, this animated child will never stop. Joan will learn better through oral communications as the best learning tool - if they shut up long enough to listen.
These kids do need to be disciplined to stretch the attention span. The greatest difficulty is finishing a task or learning a subject thoroughly. Like the butterfly, Joan will flit. This energetic kid can, though, do several things at once - like watch TV, listen to music, read a book, dominate the conversation, and fix their bike - all without missing a beat, and then probably make a sudden exit leaving your lounge room looking like a bombsite. Something more tempting will be too much to resist.
These are usually happy kids, but the moods can fluctuate. Often this is due to restlessness. Communication is the greatest skill, be that the written or the oral word. Joan will enjoy thinking games, or role-playing, or any mode of transport that is appropriate for scooting around the neighbourhood. These kids need plenty of space and just love to be on the move. Their worst enemy is boredom or being hemmed in.
This one can be a bit of a prankster too. - exercise for an enormous wit. But Joan must realise that not everyone has this delightful sense of humour. And neither do others think as quickly as this little person. Often the "humour" will go right over the heads of those around them. Gemini, being an Air sign, is not noted for being particularly sensitive, so the fact that their bit of fun was not appreciated will not be enough to put this little character off. But never try to stifle this wonderful humour. You should never be bored again.
If there are several planets in the sign directly before or after Gemini (Cancer or Taurus), it will result in Joan being a little more subdued and private.
Sun in Gemini, Sun in the Third House
The Sun in the 3rd House at the time of birth is all about learning skills and communications. Self expression is the driving force. It also concerns the local environment and neighbourhood. This is emphasised even more if the little planet Mercury is in close proximity.
Joan has the Sun in Gemini in the 3rd house, which shows brilliant communication skills. This is the natural house for the sign of Gemini, which strengthens the traits. This will be a chatterbox that can leap from one subject to the other with lightening speed. That can be a difficulty for these kids - the mind doesn't sleep - but often what comes out of the mouth can be jumbled. These kids have an abundance of nervous mental energy. Self expression is effective and is very natural. This will become a source of pride to this child. This can be a collector of useless information that can be fun - but it can become tedious. Joan will know this is a very powerful asset and use it to dominate whenever possible. The biggest task is to learn to listen and give other people a chance to get a word in.
These kids do love to learn. The mind is quick and agile. It absorbs facts easily. Joan will just soak up information like a sponge. Smaller details requiring persistence will not be so much fun because these kids do get impatient. They will be breaking their necks to get on to something new, so they often glean a bit of knowledge about a lot of things. However, boredom is the big enemy here. Joan has to be totally interested in the matter at hand to take it seriously. As soon as it all becomes tedious, the rebellious streak will emerge and chaos can break out. In many ways, these kids need the approval of the parents, so taking notice of the lack of tenacity will show that you are genuinely interested in what Joan is up to. And this could be what has fired up Joan in the first place.
Joan will chatter away to all and everyone and will soon be a well-known entity in the local neighbourhood. This is a good source of gossip - your own included. Be aware of curious little ears if you are discussing anything private, confidential, or embarrassing. Being the local "town crier" Joan will love to be the bringer of exciting news.
This little one can cause a few arguments, especially in the home, but family is very important. The natural instinct is to debate and to argue. Joan can seem to be insensitive to others and be quite overbearing when it comes to the vocal chords. But there will always be a close family connection even if there is some sibling rivalry.
There will have to be lots of books, games, and any other current learning tools on hand to keep this mind occupied. The telephone will never be idle when Joan is old enough to "ring out" or have everyone in creation "ring in". To sit and do nothing is the cruellest fate imaginable. Joan will also love scooting around the neighbourhood by any means possible. This will be a teenager who will be the first on the block to own a "set of wheels" - to be free to roam an even wider circle. There could be an interest in all modes of transport that will continue throughout life. Any gadgets old or new will intrigue this curious mind.
The Sun in the 3rd House child will always have a wide circle of friends. No one will be a stranger for long as far as Joan is concerned. The communication skills being so exceptional, these kids can find a common denominator with anyone at all. This will usually be the spokesperson within any group, and it is group activity where these kids feel good. Interaction is important.
Joan will always have an affinity with children - and is likely to retain a youthful exuberance all through life. This sort of mental energy likes to keep abreast of technology and progress.
Moon in Sagittarius
The Moon is our instinctive, emotional response. It is the innermost feelings and sensitivities that stem from the subconscious. Our Moon will always be our natural reaction when our defences are down. The Moon reflects our early conditioning, our habits, and the automatic responses that come from our early environment. Often all of this relates directly to the "Mother" figure. It is perhaps the "child" in all of us.
In reading a child's chart, the Moon, in the house, the sign and the aspects, needs to be given special understanding. These are the indications on where Joan could need special attention very early, to cope with feelings of insecurity, lack of confidence, or a low self-esteem. Recognising these needs, and working through them, will help to produce a secure and confident adult.
The Moon often reflects the "Mother figure" in our lives, which is consequently why the Moon figures so strongly in a child's chart. The placement of the Moon often describes the relationship with the Mother, which is why the "Mother" is mentioned in many areas of the Moon explanations.
The Moon sign is the more noticeable personality trait in the formative years. We tend to "grow into our Sun sign as we develop and become the person we were meant to be. The Moon in the Chart signifies the unconscious attitudes and feelings and whether or not we feel supported and accepted. It is also the accumulated attitude reflected by our own past and the historical past. The Moon will echo values and instincts that are picked up from our early environmental experiences.
This luminary is the most important factor after the influences of the Sun and the Ascendant. It describes how we express our emotions and how well we deal with them. In some cases, the ever-important Sun can put up some defences against the Moon. When very different, we can struggle to assimilate our emotions and our reason. Like the other planets, the Moon has strong and weak points in any sign, and we should try to develop the strong points. If the Moon is in compatible company, we will express our emotions very easily and we will be sensitive to other people's needs and feelings. With competition, the Moon can mean that there can be difficulty letting our feelings flow. The Moon and the Ascendant can be of an awkward mix, making the projected personality, and how we actually feel inside, quite different. But, this is all a part of the character and we are well able to bind the differences and round off the disposition.
The Moon and the emotional problems it produces can sound negative but this is not so. This is a beautiful and fundamental part of our deepest psyche that we must all accept and use to its fullest advantage.
Joan was born with the Moon in Sagittarius, which signifies an idealist. These kids will be fired with enthusiasm, energy, and optimism. They want the world and everyone in it to be good, strong, clever, and most importantly, they want everyone to have lots of fun. This high-octane kid wants to leave no stone unturned. Sagittarius is often associated with animals so Joan could well gather lots of animals in need, as well as loads of friends. The family "pet" may well only be interested in Joan as their best friend, even if someone else does all the chores attached to this tiny animal.
Mundane issues will not interest Joan much at all. These children have far reaching minds. There will be a strong interest in different people, different countries, and different cultures. But there may not be too much interest in the smaller, but equally important, minor issues. The mind seeks the big stuff, with a tendency to skip the small print. These kids love to learn, as this is the essence of life as far as they are concerned, and Joan could well become the eternal student. Equally, these kids like to share their knowledge, and being so expressive, they are easy to listen to. This can be a very useful sign for a future teacher. The genuine interest in other people, the ability to communicate so well, and the buoyant nature that shines through instils respect and captures an attentive audience.
There will no doubt be a love of any sort of sporting activities. Joan will like to compete and will have a natural love of nature and the outdoors. These kids like to be part of a team. They like to be involved and they do like to win. But it could well be this particular child who questions the rules and the coach. They will insist on fairness at all times and will often be very outspoken, not caring to whom it is that they are talking. This is not disrespectful, - they just need to say it as it is. But these kids do have a gift for putting their foot clear in their mouth too. They can be quite thoughtless, which is worthy of a few lessons in discretion early in life. They need to learn to stop and consider how they sound to other people. Joan will need to take on board the basic art of tact and diplomacy - even if this is one study that is never perfected. Joan simply has too much to do to stop and think for very long. And, this personality will seldom offend.
This sunny and optimistic little person will not be sad or disappointed for long. These kids have the knack of being able to help others through difficult times with their philosophical approach. They are able to carry everyone along with their naturally high spirits. There can be a quick temper, but it is seldom a major problem. The heat dies down quickly and so does the memory. Life is too short for these kids to bear a grudge.
Moon in Sagittarius, Moon in the Ninth House
Joan has the Moon in Sagittarius in the 9th House, which is the natural sign for this house. This child will be a restless soul forever seeking new experiences, new places, and new people. These kids will always be looking for fresh stuff to satisfy a natural curiosity. Joan will be fascinated with other countries and other cultures and is very likely to travel in adulthood. As a child, the outdoors and the wide-open spaces will be a sanctuary that Joan will turn to in order to remain grounded and secure. This is a brave and clever little soul who thinks big and is not afraid of stepping into unmarked territory. Joan could dream of going on safari, or climbing the highest mountain, to soak up the excitement and the freedom of the untamed world. This extrovert wants to be seen, heard and remembered.
These kids are, though, ruled by their emotions. Their thinking is often not particularly objective. They find pure logic too cold and too impersonal, so do need to be taught that there is indeed a need for logic. The reactions are impatient and intolerant at times. Joan is easily frustrated and this comes boiling over, especially when needs are not met. These kids are intuitive and expect everyone else to be as finely tuned as what they are.
Joan will enjoy reading, television sagas, and historical dramas, and will get totally engrossed with the fantasy. This little one will be living it - especially the role of the hero or the heroine. These kids have a lively imagination and a gift for communication. The world of imagery truly does come alive for Joan.
Joan will be a product of the original home environment. The foundations will be accepted and held on to even as times change and the mind evolves. These kids will be constantly learning, but also tend to be totally influenced by their early years. Joan can pick up prejudices and narrow influences, and not put in the time to develop principles that are unique and personal. There will be a need for some gentle guidance to help Joan to build a belief system that is a true reflection of the inner self. Let these beliefs grow, allowing Joan to be the well informed, well rounded, intelligent person that this child should truly become. There is often a deeply spiritual side of the character attached to this placement.
This is a very receptive and imaginative mind. These kids are forever changing their minds as they weigh up the options and fly from one school of thought to another. Joan will have a variety of interests and hobbies that will accumulate and add to the pot of wisdom that is Joan. These kids will enjoy sharing the knowledge that they have accumulated. Joan will file away the many experiences that are enjoyed, and will become a great raconteur as life unfolds. These kids love an audience and can spin a wonderful tale complete with embellishments that make the story even more colourful. In fact, the Moon in the 9th House often signifies a brilliant teacher in adulthood. The Sagittarius Moon is connected to clever acting skills which enhance the ability to deliver lessons in a unique and colourful way. As a teacher, or a guru, Joan will not only understand the topic at hand but will also possess a gift of expression that will inspire anyone.
Mercury in Gemini
The little planet Mercury is the mythical Messenger of the Gods. This planet is never far away from the Sun, often falling in the same sign at the time of birth, so it does tend to add emphasis to our Sun Sign. Even when Mercury is in the sign before or after the Sun, this is always considered a very personal planet.
Through Mercury, we learn all the basics in life. It indicates how we communicate, because it is here where we begin to watch and copy the rest of the family. This is the very beginning of questions and curiosity that fires up and fuels the learning process. From that point, we move on to recognising the senses, and so our personal tastes and style develops. We learn how to exchange ideas and show how clever we are. We start to question and analyse. We learn to reason and classify what we have absorbed and then stretch for more information.
Mercury is our first experience of moving out into the world beyond the back yard, armed with all that we have learned. Through this planet, our flexibility and dexterity is revealed. This planet covers the intellectual stimuli but it also has a say in how clever we are with our hands and how well balanced we are physically.
Mercury is also associated with the nervous system. This is a busy little planet at the best of times, and responsible for a big part of our intrinsic character. When put under too much pressure, the nervous system buckles. Mercury is indicative of our sense of humour, the body language we exude, and our powers of expression. This is the planet of logic and reason. So, Mercury is indeed a very important planet. It might be tiny, but it is very potent.
Joan has the planet Mercury in Gemini, which makes a lightning quick thinker. Mercury rules Gemini so this adds a whole lot of weight to this placement. These children usually learn to talk early, and from that moment on, their vocal chords will be well used. Joan will probably talk quickly and quite loudly. This expressive child will "talk" with the hands to add to the dramatic affect of any story. A simple conversation can take several turns in a short space of time in a quest to cover as much ground as possible. There is also the ability to pick up other languages easily, especially if exposed to different cultures and dialects early on. You have an excellent mimic on your hands, and copying is often how these kids learn new stuff.
The Mercury child here is very logical. Their minds move quickly, so often there will be many ideas on the go at once. If there is an easy way to reach an objective, Joan will find it. Quicker is always better to the average kid with Mercury in Gemini. Often these kids think, talk and write in shorthand. But, Joan will need to be taught to complete one project before starting another, as this can be a true failing in this type of nature. Try to instil this discipline early, and give praise and encouragement upon completing any project that is started. This will be a major accomplishment, so make sure to give credit where it is due. And congratulate yourself on being patient enough to teach such a valuable lesson. Ennui will set in easily for Joan. The mind is easily bored, so keeping this child's interest alive can be difficult.
Joan not only thinks quickly, but will also develop a razor sharp wit. Joan can become the master of "one liners". If the right answer eludes this child, a highly credible option will be found in a flash. It will be seldom that anyone else gets in the last word.
These superior communication skills do need your support, as this is a gift. However, it can be hard on the rest of the family with this little one dominating the conversation every inch of the way. This gift of language could be utilised in speech or drama lessons, or perhaps, creative writing. Any expressive form can actually be very productive and can be such a valuable outlet. Joan should be read to and encouraged to read a lot while young. This busy and inquisitive mind can learn a great deal in this way. Reading also provides valuable, but subtle, "quiet" time.
Mercury here has the makings for an excellent teacher or reporter later in life.
These youngsters can have a sensitive nervous system that can break down mainly because they just do not know when to shut off. Mercury in Gemini, whilst great at communications, can become poor communicators. They can be exasperating when they throw in irrelevant comments in an effort to stay in touch with the topic in hand. The mind moves too quickly. So, try to coax Joan into trying to slow down a little. Take some time out. Read a story together, or put on some music, but "wind-down" time will need to be taught.
Mercury in Gemini, Mercury in the Fourth House
Joan has the planet Mercury in Gemini in the 4th House. This house tends to dampen down a usually vigorous and impatient sign placement. These kids think deeply and the mind moves quickly, but a lot of what goes through this little head can be kept rather private. They will learn a whole lot of valuable stuff through watching and copying how the home and the family work. This sensitive child will soak up every bit of information, be it educational or simply the environmental atmosphere. Joan will try very hard to be included in any activity, and will feel badly if this does not happen. Basic security comes from being listened to and being accepted as a vital member of the family.
These youngsters "pick up" on what others are thinking and feeling and take it all very personally. They are touchy and easily hurt, being very susceptible to any hostile vibes. The natural reaction will be to clam up completely if there is any pressure applied - or if the atmosphere "feels" tense. Often these children are quite subjective and become highly strung. They will worry a lot about how they feel, where they are going, and what is going to happen next. The imagination can drift off to faraway places and be so vivid that Joan can actually feel removed from the here and now. In some cases the Planet Mercury in the 4th House does make some radical moves later in life simply to make the inner person feel more comfortable. These types tend to look very deeply for "the meaning of life" and can go in search of answers. Some gentle guidance will be helpful in trying to encourage Joan not to look inward quite so much. There is a need to learn to be more accepting and adjust to any changes that might occur. These little ones can be rather self-absorbed, so give them a bit of encouragement to open up. Sometimes Mercury in this House is indicative of many changes in the home, the environment or the locality during the formative years. That can affect this deep child starting a restless and questioning mind rather early in life.
Joan will probably have a love of books. In fact, any type of communicative tools that can be used to learn will be appreciated and utilised to the max. This child will want to gobble up as much information as possible in the quest for knowledge. Learning to express the very active mind in some creative way could be highly beneficial.
Mercury in the 4th House is indicative of an eternal search that takes these kids down a long and private path. They are not afraid to walk alone, and often feel that this is actually necessary for them. They feel that the law of averages does not suit their pursuit of inner wisdom and understanding.
Venus in Gemini
Venus is the planet of love. This tiny planet is responsible for the stirring of the soft and sensual pleasures of nature. Venus opens the doors of appreciation to beauty, harmony, creativity, and of course, love, and affection. Venus arouses and stimulates our senses.
Venus is important because it shows how youngsters interact. It is where children learn to share and give. Venus shows how Joan attracts love and attention and also what and who Joan is attracted to. This planet will indicate whether the basic nature is warm and affectionate or whether there is some reserve attached.
Venus is also about our creature comforts and possessions - what we need in life to feel good. Venus indicates our creativity and artistic talents and the ability to appreciate beauty. Good, bad, or unusual taste will be seen through Venus.
The house that Venus is in indicates the area in which artistic talent is expressed. This is where the expressions of sensual understanding will be valid and utilised. It can also suggest where Joan may need special attention and nourishment, in order to learn how to interact with others.
For future reference, Venus in the signs, houses and aspects will be quite revealing about relationships with the opposite sex and matters of the heart.
With Venus, the planet of love and comfort, in the energetic sign of Gemini, Joan will be a real little social butterfly that flits, charms, and chatters. This energetic and naturally curious youngster thrives on variety. Also, a natural restlessness makes them hard to pin down. They go from one interest, one friendship, and one conversation to another at lightening speed. Delightful as they are, these children do need to be trained to slow down a little, to finish off before darting off on a new venture. No one would want to clip these entertaining wings completely, but just a little gentle guidance could make life easier in the long run. Joan will like to meet all and everyone and have as many friends as possible. The more people in their life, the less bored they will be.
These children express themselves in a lively way. Others will probably enjoy the sense of humour and clever wit because Joan will know how to amuse people. As this child grows up, they can find it hard to form a deep attachment to someone. They will play the field rather than settle down.
These children could well be interested in art and poetry when they are older and should always get a lot of pleasure out of reading. Their choice will be of the lighter, entertaining stuff because they don't like stories that are heavy and complex. Joan will love company, but the natural preference is for 'casual' - without the complication of an intense emotional commitment. However, there will never be a shortage of friends and company. This highly entertaining child is well able to pick and choose who their best friend is and still remain in high demand.
Joan will love all sorts of electronic games that call for speed of wit and dexterity of the fingers. String instruments - guitar perhaps - might appeal for the same reason.
This highly entertaining and charming little party animal will simply love to feel the pulse of life at all times.
Venus in Gemini, Venus in the Fourth House
Joan has Venus in Gemini in the Fourth House. This should be a happy little homebody. Or at least, a child to whom a happy home is very important. Being loved by the parents is of the utmost importance to Joan. This is the basis of an essential sense of security. If this nourishment is not provided, Joan will miss some important lessons on how to interact with others, particularly with the opposite sex when older - the nature can become selfish and stubborn and quite difficult to get along with. This child will become detached and difficult to reach. The emotions will be hidden away, robbing Joan of the warmth and natural ability to be able to love unconditionally. But with all the love and caring "on tap", Joan will be secure and emotionally content.
Joan will love to have the immediate environment looking and feeling like a million dollars. There is great taste here, and an eye for colour and balance with the ability to create an ambience even in the most humble abode. Often there is a family pet that Joan will care for passionately. These children might live in the usual mess that most of their generation seems to prefer, but there will be fastidiousness when it comes to hygiene. Joan will be big on cleanliness.
Childhood memories will always be held close to the heart, which makes it so important that this era be happy for Joan. Powerful sentiment attached to the home will always be a force that remains with Joan, including the early family life. Later in life, Joan will want a home that is warm, welcoming, and inviting. The ambition will be that no one will feel like a stranger within the walls of the hospitality that is offered. In many cases, these children will need a bit of a push to get them out of the nest when the time comes. Joan can get too comfortable and not want to "move on". Home is where the heart is. However, in the sign of Gemini this will not completely halt the natural wanderlust.
With maturity, Joan may be a bit of a collector with a good eye for a bargain, especially antiques or collectibles. The taste may seem bizarre at times, but do not underestimate the clever eye and the strong intuition that goes with the territory here. Real estate could be a possibility. Often Venus in the fourth house suggests a business that is run from home - emphasising again how important the home will always be.
There is quite a lot of creativity here because the sense of vision is well co-ordinated, and the natural patience allows time to anticipate the end result.
Mars in Virgo
Mars is essentially the "I am" in us. It is the "I -me -and -mine" - the basic, subjective ego. It is our energy, our initiative, and our drive. It is our aggression, our temperament, and our passion. Mars is the physical side of our psyche. A strong Mars makes for great sports people because they will be competitive with a real desire to win. Later in life, Mars indicates our sex drive.
This is a fiery little planet, so a strong Mars is a "fiery" little person who runs on high octane - one who will never know when to stop. The "water signs" can dilute this energy somewhat, or can perhaps drive the passion inward. The "fire" will then not be so obvious. However, once we get the hang of our Mars sign, it is an important part of us. It is the fuel on which we run.
These children with Mars in Virgo work everything out to the last detail. Joan is a perfectionist. Every action will be considered thoroughly and every move will need to have some purpose. This is reflected in the way Joan will work, which is carefully and systematically with great attention to detail. These youngsters will take the time to do their "homework" before they start a project. They like to have all the facts and all the options at their fingertips. They can't be bothered wasting time or energy on anything foolish and hate to leave anything half finished. This child will respect tools, and will enjoy working with all the latest gadgets. There is the patience and the willingness to take the time to master difficult techniques.
Joan will not be particularly interested in physical team sports. Individual type activities like gymnastics or skating, will appeal more because these kids are more attuned to "thinking." They would enjoy the more intellectual "games."
As Joan grows up, a strong sense of responsibility will develop. These children dislike irresponsibility in others as well as in themselves. But try to encourage Joan not to be too critical of others. Encourage a tolerant outlook and acceptance that everyone does not share their perfectionist abilities. Doctors, surgeons, nurses, and social workers often have Mars placed here. There is much associated with this placement that involves helping people. Joan will need to feel needed but this can also be the classic workaholic later in life.
The adolescent years and the onset of puberty can disturb these youngsters. Joan might not like the physical changes and girls, particularly, can get caught up in weight obsession or something similar. These youngsters can be rather slow to warm to the opposite sex. A petty hate session with the kid next door could be the sign of a budding romance.
Mars in Virgo, Mars in the Sixth House
Joan, with Mars in Virgo in the 6th House, will be an industrious little worker. These youngsters will enjoy hard work as long as they can control the way that they do it. They are very determined. They will set very high standards and will not like to work with people who are not as committed as they are. These kids usually gain recognition for their talents. However, learning can be slow. These kids need to understand their objectives and can get confused if things don't add up. When this happens, Joan can switch off and give up. This can be the type of kid that will refuse to try rather than risk failure. This needs watching, because it can set a habit that will be difficult to break.
Throughout life, but especially when young, this child may feel that they know more than their peers do. However, if there is real respect for those who are in authority, the application and hard work will be automatic. These kids need to feel comfortable in the environment and will need results to be acknowledged in order to maintain the momentum. It cannot be introduced too early though, to try to train Joan not to be too critical and too pedantic. Being dissatisfied with results or relying on continual praise that is not forthcoming can be used as an excuse. Accepting personal satisfaction, setting personal goals and accepting reasonable limits will enable Joan to realise healthy objectives.
It is very important that Joan learn to express personal feelings and aspirations openly and with honesty. These kids can go either way. They can go on to lead fruitful and productive lives or they can waste the many talents available to them. These youngsters put too much pressure on themselves and get frustrated. Caring for a pet can help Joan enormously. It can help to cover many of the tricky traits of this House placement of the planet Mars. These children do try hard but they can sometimes expect too much and settle for too little.
This perfectionist can sometimes focus too much on details. This can cause them to lose sight of the overall aim. In other words, Joan can easily not "see the forest for the trees." When this child is older, they will do best if they are self-employed, a situation where they will probably thrive.
Jupiter in Virgo
Jupiter is a slower moving planet that stays in the same sign for about a year. Its sign has a direct personal effect only when it is in close aspect to the Ascendant or Midheaven, or forms a strong aspect with one of the personal planets. Jupiter is the planet of expansion, growth, and often, luck.
The house position of Jupiter relates to areas of life in which we will want to grow. It shows the area in which we are likely to think positively and optimistically. In a general sense, things work well for us in the house that Jupiter occupies. The keyword for Jupiter is expansion. That can be physically, mentally, or spiritually. Jupiter's position can relate to the expansion of assets relating to financial freedom, or perhaps, even, weight.
Jupiter in Virgo is very often a child who seems older than their years. Joan will be very realistic and very responsible. But Joan can be too timid. These kids tend to underestimate their own abilities and will sell themselves short. Give Joan a few simple chores to do from an early age. This little one will love being trusted with the responsibility. But make sure you heap on the praise for a job well done. Joan will be waiting for this and the beaming smile you get will be a big bonus. Being practical is fine, but there is a need to learn to have a few dreams too. A little idealism wouldn't hurt.
Joan will take work and responsibility very seriously. The sense of obligation is huge. If this child does neglect to do something they are supposed to do, they feel guilty. In fact, these kids often tend to feel guilty about indulging themselves in any way at all. They could feel it necessary to justify activities that are simple "fun" things. There is a great need for a bit of fun - these kids must learn to accept that this is OK. Joan does need to learn to be a child. So try to teach very early that fun is fine.
This cautious little intellectual will always expand the knowledge. This child will always strive to improve. But, Joan may need to learn not to be quite so dedicated.
Jupiter in Virgo, Jupiter in the Sixth House
Joan has Jupiter in Virgo in the Sixth House. Jupiter in this House expands the work ability and the opportunities in the area of work later in life. Joan will have a caring and genuine attitude with a real humane touch. Others will respond to this. The nice personality will grow as this child develops, and in adulthood, the pure understanding of human nature will be quite profound. This little person will be respected rather early for having plenty of ability, a natural empathy, and understanding of the full picture. This will be a popular child whether it is at home, in the neighbourhood, at school, or later, in the work place.
Joan will be blessed with plenty of mental energy but may not know when to stop. This child can push too hard and not accept when a project is finished. The aims are high and if the aspirations are not met, the attitude can become despondent and moody. Teach Joan to accept a few limitations and accept completion. Let this child see that it will be just too difficult to cover everything and please everyone as well. Trying to be too perfect can spoil the objective.
Later, Joan will need to find work that is meaningful. Dull, repetitive, and seemingly pointless tasks will turn off the enthusiasm very quickly. Joan will have plenty of patience to cope with minor detail and precision but it must be interesting. Whatever the situation there is the ability to raise everyone's spirits. The natural talent to motivate and stimulate others can be a valuable gift. Joan could eventually work in another country or with people who come from another part of the world. Work may include travel. This is one of the indications of a future political animal who will like nothing better than a cause to fight for.
Usually this placement means that there will be good health as long as everything is done in moderation. Health, diet and the "body" can become an obsession. Excess can be a problem. Equally, a busy mind can burden itself with too many projects, leading to total disrespect of the health. Moderation is the key. But it is a "must" to develop disciplined health habits in order to avoid illnesses connected with hedonism. These people can enjoy too much of a good thing.
Saturn in Aquarius
There are always two sides of Saturn - what is, and what can be. Saturn stays in the same sign for approximately two and a half years, so all of the children born around the same time as Joan will show the same characteristics. Saturn in the sign is therefore personal only when forming one or more aspect(s) with the personal planets, the Ascendant, or the Midheaven.
Read these aspects thoroughly to be more aware of Saturn and what it has to teach this child.
Saturn is all about progress, but it is the slow and sure progress - nothing happens quickly with this rather severe planet. This is where we learn the art of survival. Saturn makes us stop, look, and listen and not go rushing in. This is where we come up against brick walls, where we have to review the lessons learned and modify the next move. Saturn makes us accept responsibility, accept a challenge, and move forward. Saturn is the reason behind many of our fears, our sense of guilt and our sense of failure, but, again, when we beat these obstacles, we are so much wiser and stronger.
The House in which Saturn falls signifies the areas where life can be tough. Nothing seems to come easily, and yet the prospects are of significance. This is the area where our fears will have to be addressed and where our confidence will need to be lifted. Discipline and patience will be badly needed here in order for us to gain control. It is where we must stop and think, but ultimately we learn from Saturn - he is a great teacher. Saturn is often related to the father figure, or the "authority" figure that influences Joan. Difficult aspects with Saturn often indicate problems in this area.
Saturn often sounds rather negative which is not accurate. Consider Saturn as a hurdle that is there to be conquered - not as an obstacle to fear.
Joan has the planet, Saturn, in the innovative sign of Aquarius. Both sign and planet are quite compatible, so there will be strong powers of concentration and a forward thinking approach to life. There could be quite a scientific bent and a real understanding and fascination with the more abstract subjects.
Joan will be influenced by friends whilst young, but with maturity, it will be politics and society that will be the big influence. These kids will be structured in their thinking and will develop a real need to improve systems to adjust to their own generation rather than accept the old theories that seem to be obsolete. They understand growth and the fact that nothing stays the same.
Joan will set firm goals with some serious and careful preparation. But, this child can be quite dogmatic. There can be a difficulty accepting the alternatives. The natural trait is to get totally drowned in personal theories and give no credit to anyone else.
There will be plenty of self-discipline and inner strength, not to mention stamina. Tolerance and understanding on a personal and sensitive level must be learned though. Joan will make friends so easily and earn respect as a natural fundamental. But these friends do find it hard to get too close. Uniqueness can make this little one a social loner if not encouraged early to loosen up and include the friends around them. It can be that the childhood home is unusual, the lifestyle a little different, maybe a place where Joan has to scramble to be heard. This early environment is crucial to this little one in learning how to express ideas easily and learning to adapt socially in a comfortable and relaxed way.
As a child there will be a good imagination and a sense of humour - try to encourage Joan to maintain this light part of the nature and not sacrifice all the personal warmth in the name of idealism.
Saturn in Aquarius, Saturn in the Eleventh House
Joan has the planet Saturn in Aquarius in the Eleventh House. The friends that Joan makes in childhood will last a lifetime. There can be some difficulty in venturing out of the comfort zone - this little one does need to gather up the conviction to do this. There can be subtle and deep-rooted reasons for this fear. Joan could suffer from teasing at a tender age that shakes the confidence and the trust. This could be why company that is familiar feels safer. However, when this fear is overcome, these kids will find plenty of ability to interact within a group. They can take on the responsibility and gain the respect of not just old friends but the public at large. Joan does have a lot to offer.
Joan will try to test the rules of the establishment and question the motives of those in power, but will actually seldom break the rules entirely. There is a need to be accepted and recognised as having something worthwhile to say; fraternising with older or wiser people provides the nourishment to be able to do this. Perhaps adults can also be less critical and more receptive and constructive.
These kids have a strong sense of fairness - they will jump on any sort of inequality and take it up as a personal issue. They do have ideals and dreams, but these are very much suppressed by the need to be practical and realistic. Joan can be naturally rather suspicious and cynical, which is often deep-rooted frustration from feeling restricted. The intuition is questioned and analysed when it should be trusted.
Joan may not be a social butterfly with this serious nature and their selectivity in who is allowed to get "close". The inclination will be for close-knit groups and familiar company. But Joan will develop a wise head and will become a rather good counsellor without getting emotionally involved. Others will turn to this kid for practical advice, which will be given readily.
Turning Saturn around involves learning to trust and learning to accept self-satisfaction, rather than striving for recognition or gratification. Life will be far more rounded if the fear of stepping out to taste new pastures is overcome. This is what Joan wants to do. This should be recognised and nurtured early in an informal but consistent way.
As life evolves, there will be times when the effects of Saturn will be felt. Joan can feel frustrated and blocked at every move. Dreams and aspirations seem to take forever to reach fruition. The energy sags and the will to move on can feel almost depleted. However, by accepting that the most valuable lessons are often the hardest, and that those lessons are what the heavenly teacher has in mind, Joan will emerge wiser and stronger.
Uranus in Aries
Uranus is a huge planet that has the reputation for causing all sorts of chaos. Uranus has a mind of its own, racing around in space on its side and with an orbit that is unpredictable. Uranus is very difficult to spot with the naked eye. Similarly, the Uranian traits are quite difficult to 'spot'.
This 'cranky' planet brings change - unexpected, sudden and completely disruptive change. It can be the source of disasters or miracles. The function of Uranus is to disrupt our view of reality, and give us an alternative view beyond the known and the visible. Uranus provides sudden flashes of insight and creative genius, as well as practised eccentricity. Uranus has the ability to shake up the comfort of the 'norm' and catapult us into a rather scary future.
This planet stays in each sign for about 7 years so is considered one of the slow movers. The qualities that stem from the sign that Uranus is in will affect all of the children in the same era as Joan. As the slow moving planets move from sign to sign, the differences will be subtle, but they will loosely apply to the philosophy and the attitudes of the child concerned.
Uranus in the House is a whole lot more personal. This will be where Joan will display a uniqueness of character. It will be where the intuition is heightened, and the need to be 'different' will be apparent. It can be the area where Joan is subjected to major changes and disruptions over which there is no control. The issues that apply to the house that Uranus falls in can involve a lifetime struggle to conquer and understand.
Joan belongs to a generation with the planet Uranus in Aries, indicating a headstrong, impetuous nature, for whom individual freedom is very important. These children have their own inner light. They seem to march to the beat of a different drum. 'Their way' is seldom in tune with rules or guidelines imposed by outside authority. Teachers and those in authority can despair, as there will be little respect for hierarchy or tradition. Rules, to this child, have to make real sense before they are given any credence at all, and even then, those rules are very likely to be modified.
Somehow, Joan will need to be trained to apply a little bit of discipline and 'fit in' now and again. These children will always fight for their freedom in every way, but a bit of compromise has to be learned as well. If Joan simply goes through childhood always calling the shots, it will be a lost and lonely path up ahead. This little one should have a clever mind, maybe with technical or electronic know-how, but even systems have 'rules'.
Uranus in the First House
1st House: This powerful House is essentially the outward expression and obvious character traits. It represents the "I, me, and mine" - the ego and the subjective - the "I want" attitude. This House also shows the "I can do" attitude. This is about spontaneous openness, and the inherent qualities that drive the personality.
Joan has the planet Uranus in the First House, which suggests an unconventional individual. These children like to be different in every conceivable way. They seem to march to the beat of a different drum. 'Their way' is seldom in tune with anyone else and the other children can see Joan as a bit odd. But there will be a fascination anyway, as there is little malice or harm in this very powerful nature. The innovative mind and the restless and original spirit will appeal to the more placid children on the block.
Joan will be openly rebellious, challenging all the rules and regulations. Again, this is not to be vindictive, - just part of the big plan - to be different. Teachers and those in authority can despair, as there will be little respect for hierarchy or tradition. Rules, to this child, have to make real sense before they are given any credence at all, and even then, those rules are very likely to be modified.
Somehow, Joan will need to be trained to apply a little bit of discipline and 'fit in' now and again. These children will always fight for their freedom in every way, but a bit of compromise has to be learned as well. If Joan simply goes through childhood always calling the shots, it will be a lost and lonely path up ahead.
This little one should have a clever mind, maybe with technical or electronic know-how, but even systems have 'rules'. It can be too easy for Joan to just drift and become erratic, unreliable, and totally irresponsible. This would be such a waste of a unique and advanced thinker that could do such a lot.
Joan will stand out in a crowd. The teenager with Uranus in the first house will be a 'trend setter' who will thrive on being seen as unique. Perhaps this child simply looks exotic or different without any cosmetic or fashionable influence. Whatever, the individuality will always be noticed and the ability to attract friends and admirers will be a breeze. With just a bit of common sense tossed in, a bit of respect for the conventional, Joan should enjoy a thoroughly interesting life.
Neptune in the Sixth House
6th House: This House is where the child develops work ethics and a sense of pride in workmanship. This House is about "duty". It is about precision - "getting things right". This House is the classroom, the school environment, and learning. It is about books and study. This House is also about health and personal habits. Attitude and mental competitiveness begins here in the 6th House.
Joan has the planet Neptune in the Sixth House of work and health. This little one will be quite good at "drifting" off when there is serious work to be done. The imagination will be strong and some of the excuses that will be used to "get out of things" will be quite extraordinary. To get some efforts out of Joan, make it sound important and helpful. These kids will respond a whole lot better to contributing to personal needs rather than to obligations. The jobs that involve "prettying" the place up will appeal - so gathering flowers, tending a small garden or rearranging the home will spark some interest. But, Joan does have to learn to accept that the mundane chores have to be done. These kids have to take on board a bit of discipline and routine. They may want a bit of help and will certainly need to be acknowledged for a job well done. This is the only way that Joan will learn how to accept credit when it is due and take some pride in self worth and ability.
Joan could be overly sensitive to certain foods and prescribed medicines. Allergies can be quite common with Neptune in the 6th House. What can seem like psychological problems can develop into real illness that does need to be taken seriously. Care will need to be taken here. Defining what is imaginary and what is real can be difficult. Joan will be sensitive in all ways so will suffer even more if are not believed. But, these kids must learn to draw on their inner strength and avoid taking the emotional but illusory way out. They can easily fall back on any excuse in the book to avoid taking responsibility.
In adulthood, drugs and alcohol can have quite a bad affect, so early training and leading by example will do only good in the long run for Joan. Certainly early education in this area is a must.
Pluto in the Fifth House
5th House: Creativity, having fun, playing with, and mixing with others - the essential social interaction. This is the house of developing life skills that involve contact with company. This house is about developing the skills to become popular, confident, and socially accepted. This house also relates strongly with children.
Joan has the powerful planet, Pluto, in the 5th house so will be quite intense. These children will seem to take everything seriously. Even games and playing may not be a simple matter of fun and experience for this youngster. It will tend to be simply a "power game". Joan will "play" seriously. Winning or losing - it is the experience of putting everything on the line that appeals. The young child, though, may not recognise this. They may wonder why everyone else seems to be having fun except them. Joan must learn early not to take everything so seriously. It is this attitude that makes it impossible for them to be one of the "crowd". The intensity of having to be "right' can also cause upsets. So in all ways, these serious kids must learn to relax, laugh, and open their minds and imagination. Joan must try to get away from this rather one-track mind. Many relationships and friendships will be destroyed if this potent personality trait is not recognised and the attitude worked on. Encourage Joan to play sports and experience groups where sharing and teamwork is basic. Try to make compromise and giving a fundamental part of this passionate child's life.
With maturity, Joan will approach love affairs too seriously. Here again, too much intensity will ruin the enjoyment and the fun. This is a passionate personality. But this can be adjusted. Joan can learn to loosen up and then life will be quite fun and carefree. Maybe, even, a bit too much so.
Joan could grow into a bit of a gambler - and could well develop quite expensive tastes in life.
Planets in Aspect
EXPLANATION OF THE ASPECTS
An explanation of the Aspects: These are very important in any natal chart. It is when 2 or more planets "make connection" with each other. To be of significance, the "orb" or degree of this connection, must be relatively close. All the Aspects are of significance, but some are more powerful than are others. And, of course, they all have different meanings.
All of the aspects that are relevant are automatically listed in order of strength. Obviously, the higher the strength the more relevant and potent the aspect.
Conjunction: A powerful and dynamic aspect. This is when two or more planets are sitting right next to each other and they will either back each other up, or compete against each other. Being in the same sign and same house adds up to a lot of weight.
Trine: A distance of 120-degrees between any planet forms a "Trine". These planets will be in the same Element so they will blend well and flow. The Trine brings comfort, ease, and benefit with little effort.
Sextile: The distance between any planets involved in a "Sextile" is 60 degrees. This aspect brings the opportunity to be productive or creative. But the energy of the Sextile must be used - it will not just "happen" Both planets will fall in either Masculine or Feminine signs, so they are compatible.
Square: There will be a 90-degree separation between any planets involved in a "Square". Here is an indication of obstacles and stress that need to be worked through. The planets "square off" against each other but - these are personal learning curves of life. These are hurdles for us to jump but through them we learn and grow. The lessons from Squares tend to be subjective. These aspects will be in signs of the same quality.
Opposition: As the name suggests, any planets that form an "opposition" will be smack, bang opposite each other at 180-degrees apart. This is where one learns to compromise and give a little. The opposition usually involves other people. These lessons are quite objective. Being in polar opposite signs of the zodiac, these planets mirror each other.
Inconjunct also known as the Quincunx: This is considered a "minor" aspect but is about our personal growth and long-term development in the area of the personality. It shows us our limitations and how we can expand a little. The distance between the two celestial bodies here will be 150 degrees apart. Being relatively minor, the orb used is generally rather tight. This aspect would be almost exact to rate in this interpretation.
Mercury conjunct Venus (Strength: 11.96)
The conjunctions add emphasis to the power, the energy, and the vitality of the planets.
With the expressive little planet Mercury in close conjunction to Venus, the planet of love and beauty, Joan is bound to have good taste. There will be an eye for colour and balance, and there will probably be some creative talent here, too. Even quite young, these children can show some definite artistic ability. They will enjoy making things. They can be rather arty-crafty, so encourage these clever hands and ideas to blossom. The essence of this conjunction is the ability to be totally attuned to the beauty of life and beyond.
Joan will have a very pleasant manner with all the social graces wrapped up with optimism and charm. Who can resist this child? They can get along with anyone. They instinctively understand the art of compromise. Joan will not always "give in" but will not see the point in creating too many waves. These children tend to shy away from discord. They can actually state their case very well, but do it nicely and naturally, without being argumentative.
In school, these kids lean more towards the creative studies, but they will enjoy learning. Much effort will be put in to adding the finishing touches to a project. The finished product must be pleasing to the eye for Joan to feel satisfied. Pride will not allow anything messy or half-done go on show. However, Joan can sometimes be a wee bit lazy. The real love is leisure, pleasure, and having fun.
Sun opposite Moon (Strength: 7.45)
The oppositions bring about awareness through compromise. Conflict within the opposition can involve either internal or external issues.
Joan has the Sun in opposition to the Moon which is the full Moon phase. This produces fluctuating energy flows. These children need to learn to take advantage of the highs to get things done and take a rest during the lows. The emotions and the basic willpower tend to compete, so these kids can be highly logical or, alternatively, extremely emotional.
This child will learn to understand through simple debate, or this could be seen as straight out arguing with friends and peers. They are likely to seek the viewpoints of friends in order to gain confidence but will make up their own minds. Joan will still argue the point because other people's opinions will be the yardstick for this child, not the rulebook. There will be a tendency to have strong opinions, and these kids will usually fight for what they believe to be right. But they still want and need those alternative ideas and ideals. Alternatives give a sense of perspective to the basic philosophy.
These kids will seek truth. They will enjoy true stories about true heroes. Scientific and modern technology will intrigue because there is a real curiosity about progress and the world at large. Later, Joan will respect people who make history or change the world in a big way. Idols will be great leaders and legends rather than a "five-minute-wonder" pop star idol.
Many people turn to the Full Moon person in times of need, but unfortunately, this can be difficult for these people because this phase has enough problems to cope with. Often the sea-saw personality reflects back to childhood. Maybe the parents or the home environment is indecisive or changeable. But when the balancing act in the emotional department has been learned, usually a very high achiever emerges.
Mars conjunct Jupiter (Strength: 6.69)
The conjunction adds emphasis to the power, the energy, and the vitality of the planets.
Joan has the energetic planet Mars Conjunct the expansive planet Jupiter. Jupiter expands on whatever it touches, and in this close proximity Joan will be naturally optimistic and have a strong sense of purpose. This energetic kid will want to be on the go the whole time. There will always be new friends to make, new places to go, and new things to try. Doing the same things, seeing the same people, will appear to Joan as overly restrictive.
Joan will have little sense of fear, which can be quite scary for a parent watching on. The curiosity and the sheer confidence can make this kid feel bullet-proof. The grass will always be greener on the other side of the fence for this little one. Nothing will be deemed impossible.
Joan should be steered into sport at an early age. This enormous energy needs an outlet and this aspect often indicates athletic ability. Joan, being highly competitive, will enjoy interaction with other kids, so the perfect solution for this exuberant kid is to "run off" the high voltage.
These kids like to be in charge. In fact, they can have a lot of difficulty obeying orders. They seldom "give in" to anyone. But this is a confident decision-maker. Joan will have an incredible sense of timing, which often produces results. The colourful expression and the power of persuasion help Joan to convince others and make it relatively easy for Joan to win against any opposition. These kids can "sell" their ideas with great flair and usually get just what they want. When the adolescent years roll in, Joan will become well aware of a load of sex appeal that simply adds to the charming nature. This asset will be another weapon in the armoury of persuasive charm.
In many ways, Joan has been born "lucky". The powerful personality is a huge asset. The clever ideas and the ability to diversify will help results - and enrich power. These kids have ability and they have charisma.
Joan should look forward to a diverse and interesting life. The objective will be to cover as much ground as possible and to experience as much of life as is humanly possible.
This character will not know when to stop. The frantic pace that is set cannot be altered; Joan will expect everyone else to have the same stamina and the same agenda
Venus opposite Midheaven (Strength: 6.09)
The oppositions bring about awareness through compromise. Conflict within the opposition can involve either internal or external issues.
With the warm planet Venus in opposition to the Midheaven, Joan is likely to have the good fortune of a family home which is relaxed. This should be a haven of kindness, a place surrounded by love and friendliness. While young, life should be reasonably calm and easy for Joan. The relationship with the parents should be positive, encouraging, and very comfortable. This will be where Joan learns to feel a deep inner security and the knowledge that the world is basically a good place. Feeling at one with the world and content with the cards that have been dealt, this child learns quite early on that blessings are many. Joan will feel loved and protected and will work to create the same for their children when the time comes. Their home is always their haven.
The actual home will always be a source of pleasure. Joan will badly want to share the general feeling of goodwill that comes from the benefits of a loving and strong base. This child will be well aware that not everyone is as fortunate. The natural urge is to share, and so the home will always have an open door policy where everyone is made very welcome. Joan will tend to think that everyone deserves a break, but will know very well that life simply is not like that.
There is natural good taste here with an appreciation and an eye for rather nice possessions. Pieces of art, crystal, pottery - even woodcarvings will appeal. The preference will be for unique creations that hold a personal flavour. A strong dress sense will emerge as the adolescence flashiness starts, but again, Joan will manage to look well groomed but highly noticeable. As an adult, the tastes will reflect elegance and grace, but will still be subtle. The future home that Joan creates will smack of panache and grace, but will always remain welcoming.
Mercury opposite Midheaven (Strength: 5.61)
The oppositions bring about awareness through compromise. Conflict within the opposition can involve either internal or external issues.
The expressive planet Mercury in opposition to the Midheaven produces children who will look deep within themselves for answers to the questions that come up in life. The inner feelings will strongly influence their view of the world. These kids are not objective enough. Their own point of view is the only point of view as far as they are concerned. Being too subjective is a serious danger with this aspect. It will help enormously if Joan is encouraged to learn to look outwardly too - to see and to accept how others feel.
Joan will be able to communicate ideas and feelings very easily. In fact, there is a huge ability to communicate very well, but the need is there to broaden the outlook, to not become too narrow and rigid.
The basic attitudes and opinions will take shape early in life for Joan and later it will be very difficult to change. It is important that this child is encouraged to form opinions and ideals based on what suits them. It is too easy for them to accept the principles that their peers set without any question at all. These kids can actually become very set in their ways early if they are not encouraged to seek alternatives. There is a strong chance that this child's beliefs are based on what the family has taught, instead of personal observations and experiences. They will be far more rounded if they can reach out and form some opinions on deeper issues that they have found for themselves.
Joan will have the ability to think and to feel on a deep level. These kids are well able to become more independent if they are given the right encouragement. They can feel as though they have to be agreeable to be accepted by the family.
Sun trine Saturn (Strength: 5.26)
Trines bring ease, harmony, and success, which need little effort. They can help creativity.
Joan has the Sun trine Saturn. This quiet child will always seem responsible and capable. There is a great need to be proper and do everything correctly, all of which can come at the expense of simply having fun.
Learning will always be highly valued, but Joan needs an orderly setting where there are rules and regulations that are easy to follow. Chaos or a changing environment confuses these kids. The preference will always be to learn things that make sense. This practical kid will not like to waste time on silly stuff. If there is not an obvious practical objective, the urgency will not be there. Introducing some fun stuff and some playtime will help round off this child enormously and help bring out a bit of "fun and light" in this serious personality.
Joan will be very modest and reliable. This will be noticed, and adults will utilise this common sense which Joan will enjoy. These kids do like to be trusted. There will be a healthy respect for authority, and yet these children usually do not need anyone to approve their actions. They know and follow the rules.
Joan will be patient and willing to work a long time to reach a goal. The promise of future reward is enough to keep the interest fired up. In every area, standards will be very high. There will be little patience with people who take the quick and easy way. Given the responsibility of "teaching" others will bring out an understanding and a patience of those lesser mortals.
These kids do not like to give in because the going gets tough. They accept the challenge. They are resilient and determined.
Sun square Mars (Strength: 3.84)
The Squares are quite subjective. Squares bring challenges that must be worked through.
Joan has the Sun squared off against Mars. This is a highly emotional and fiery tempered kid. Joan will probably be very self-assertive not to mention argumentative. So a few lessons in toeing the line will be necessary. Kids with this aspect are often too quick to pick up a challenge even when none was intended. They must learn to calm down and not be quite so hasty. Training Joan to take full responsibility from an early age, without attaching guilt, is by far the best approach. Sometimes these kids may not even recognise the effect their nature has on others, so they will be genuinely confused at the reactions an outburst may cause. The poor kid may stir people without even knowing it, by tone of voice, body language, or by not saying anything. But most importantly, put some effort into allowing Joan to recognise the sheer potency of this powerful energy. Help Joan to utilise it thoroughly. Joan must learn to bow out now and again - it is not always possible to run the show. Being the most dogmatic, vocal, and aggressive does not necessarily make for the best leader.
Often there will be a quick temper that flares suddenly. The big lesson is to make Joan responsible for any outbursts rather than reacting or maybe turning a blind eye for the sake of peace. There could be a good reason for such anger. Encourage a positive discussion making this a part of the training and guidance needed for a calmer, more in control, child.
This aspect makes for some bad drivers. It also produces many good athletes. This is the real difference between using this energy constructively or destructively.
Moon square Mars (Strength: 3.29)
The Squares are quite subjective. Squares bring challenges that must be worked through.
With the sensitive Moon squared up against the fiery planet Mars, there are bound to be many an emotional outburst from Joan. There can be a lot of trouble controlling the temper and a lot of training needed not to take life and its knocks so personally. When the "angry" button is pushed, there will be little logic applied. It will be straight from the heart and often any provocation is imaginary anyway. Joan will pick up the wrong vibes too easily. These kids have to learn to think about a situation and gauge their reactions carefully before flying off the deep end. They need to learn to be responsible for their own temperament. Joan must be taught to justify the angry reactions and take ownership of this problem.
These are very sensitive kids. Trying to get them to suppress this anger will do even more harm to them. Joan will need to be able to express the strong feelings in a positive and acceptable way. If the home environment is frantic, with people in and out, or lots of arguments and aggression, it will compound this dilemma. Peace and quiet is what Joan needs, along with an orderly routine.
The rapport with the Mother is especially important. Learning to feel free to express anxieties is a major lesson, and if the maternal role model is not there to help this issue, these kids recoil and try to smother their anger and frustrations. This can later reflect a difficulty coping with the female sex, seeing every female as a source of disappointment. The feelings of being shut out is manifest, building up deep resentments and a need to kick back So, someone needs to be there in that female role to convince Joan that circumstances are of the essence - not women in general.
If these youngsters can learn to think clearly without letting feelings rule, the energies of this aspect can be positive. With maturity, Joan will learn to be less demanding of others and not take offence so easily and quickly. Channelled properly, this energy is boundless. These people can move mountains. But, often this aspect results in so many emotional crises that it can ultimately lead to poor health if not handled properly.
Harmony in relationships must be a conscious goal for Joan, with a need to lean more towards the "make love - not war" theory. Early help can make this task easier.
Moon sextile Saturn (Strength: 2.71)
Sextiles bring chances and opportunity. Effort is needed to realise the full potential.
These children with the Moon in sextile to Saturn will be very reserved. Joan can seem quite remote and will seem to reject physical affection, but of course all kids need to be shown that they are indeed loved. Joan will not be particularly demonstrative -- practical caring is more the style. These kids do, though, like to understand the logical side of emotion. They will feel very comfortable discussing any problems, or how they feel, but the emotions are under strict control. Joan will sincerely try to understand what provokes any type of reaction. But, this kid does not like surprises. This is a creature of habit who will want to know what is going to happen next. And this is why there is an interest in the mechanics of human nature. It is useful in anticipating what is going to happen next.
It is worth noting that any major disruptions and changes in routine can affect Joan badly. The instinct is to panic in forced situations, or in being put in a setting that is new. Always reassure this child; explain beforehand what is happening, what can be anticipated, and allow time to adjust. It can save a lot of heartache and grief.
Joan will communicate well. These kids will be able to project knowledge clearly and with real authority. Teaching comes naturally later in life whether that is in a professional capacity or just in an everyday capacity. In a crisis situation, Joan can be rock solid with a knowing of what to do with the minimum of fuss. Even as a young child, these kids will accept responsibility for their own actions more easily than will most other kids. They can be trusted to use good solid common sense.
Joan will be very concerned with what others think. These kids will work hard to win approval. Bearing this in mind, they may need to be taught to act out life as they want, rather than trying so hard to please. Eventually they should learn to do what is important to them, and be less concerned with being "good". So, it can only help to encourage Joan to have a bit of fun and not take life quite so seriously all of the time.
Sun square Jupiter (Strength: 2.52)
The Squares are quite subjective. Squares bring challenges that must be worked through.
The Sun squared off to Jupiter makes for a potentially egotistical child. But this is a great aspect if toned down just a little. Without some training in the area of restraint, this child will have little respect for anyone in authority. This can lead to major difficulties especially with the onset of adolescence. These kids need to learn respect. And with this aspect, they will indeed be willing to learn. They are not hostile or anti-social. They are just very open and very honest and simply do not stop to think.
Joan will probably always have the natural impulse to overdo everything. Moderation is the major lesson that needs to be learned. On the plus side, there is excellent foresight and intuition that will be a great help when making decisions. Joan will instinctively recognise the good moves which will be seen as a bit of a gamble, but lady luck is often with this character. However, the best way to utilise this gift is to also plan and have an alternative in sight. No matter how invincible these kids think they are, they can mess up as quickly as the next person.
Joan could also be over the top in the sense of self-worth too. This kid can stretch the imagination when relating a success story and exaggerate just how good they are. This can become the "braggart" that we have all known at sometime in our lives. If this is so, it will make for a much more popular and credible person if this is nipped in the bud.
"Big" will always be better as far as Joan is concerned. These people do not place a big importance on amassing money. They like to spend it. They can be a lot of fun and great company if they learn very early to respect other people and water down that ego a little.
This is one of the "better" squares.
The prominence of the Planets and the contacts that they make with each other define the strongest Planet(s) in the Natal Chart. Some planets make a lot of "noise" which you will see in the area of the "Aspects" whilst some are just waiting for something to happen. The following are considered the Powerhouse Planets and their meetings and positions add a further dimension to the attitudes and aptitudes of Joan.
There can be more than one "strongest planet" in which case the person will have a natural ability to dance to many tunes - they will be adaptable and versatile. But if one planet or luminary comes through as the absolute leader, then the person will be very specifically made up of the flavour of that celestial body.
Venus Dominant (Strength: 20.05)
Venus is a very bright little planet that is often the jewel that we see when we look skyward on a crisp clear evening. You can't miss the planet of love and creativity twinkling down. Venus defines our values. It relates to our capacity to attract other people and to how we accumulate personal assets to satisfy our sense of well being. Venus being so prominent in this Chart indicates that Joan will be a bright and happy little person. These children may seem larger than life because they enjoy life, especially all the good things. They can be a bit laid back. They can even be quite lazy at times because they get comfortable and feel reluctant to move. So, as long as there is something to eat and drink, and entertainment is there at the push of a button, Joan will be happy. Whoever invented the 'remote control' must surely have had Venus showing strongly in their chart.
These children can also be a bit greedy, as they love possessions. They like amassing lots of things and they may not be too keen to share. They adore sheer comfort and luxury, but this is their sense of security. This strong influence of Venus causes Joan to be a person who will feel completely beaten if in an isolated situation or not knowing where the next meal is coming from. Joan will like nice clothes, will like to look good, and will probably be attracted to the opposite sex very early in life. No doubt, pure sex appeal will be one of the strongest assets. In adulthood, there will be expensive tastes. These people take their pleasures very seriously. There could well be creative, artistic, or musical talent here that should be nurtured.
With the Planet of Love so prominent in this chart, love of course, is very important to Joan. This child will always want to know that they are loved; they themselves are very warm, very cuddly, and very affectionate. There will be no shortage of friends, and later, admirers. This will be a popular little package.
Mercury Dominant (Strength: 19.59)
Mercury, the mythical messenger, predominant in the natal Chart points to communication and the mind. This strong influence makes for a youngster who is articulate, versatile, agile, and energetic. The mind will dart from one subject to the next, but the ability to process and express what has been absorbed should be keen. This busy little planet collects and classifies all the information that filters through the brain and the mind. And it carefully discards what it does not need, or already knows. This is how Joan will operate on such an intellectual level. This child will just have to be able to express how they feel. Joan will want you to know, understand, and listen. Sharing all of that knowledge is at least half of the fun of learning.
Mercury also heightens the co-ordination, allowing flexibility both of the mind and the physical body. When the influence of Mercury flows through a Gemini influence, the mental capacity will be very strong. The warm and humorous side of this planet shines through. When this energy comes from a strong Virgo showing, the dexterity will be the ability to use the hands to create. Although the mind is clever and capable, it reflects the cooler side of Mercury - the analytical and the self-critical side.
All of these children will love to learn. They will argue the point, make their thoughts known, and they will be expressive in their writing and oral skills.
Joan can also suffer from nerves as Mercury rules the nervous system. It is highly likely that this child runs on nervous energy. This Planet also covers the memory and the perception.
Sun Dominant (Strength: 19.07)
The Sun is technically a star - a big, bold, invigorating star that essentially marks our individuality and drives our willpower. It is the light of our lives. When the Sun is predominant in the Natal Chart, the child will have an abundant personality that will literally be blinding. They have the natural ability to bring the sunshine into a room with them. Joan will radiate true warmth.
These kids will be natural, creative, and magnetic but can be puffed up in their own self-importance too. Self-esteem is all-important, and although Joan will have plenty of confidence, the ego is a hungry ego - it will be continually looking for nourishment. Like the sunlight itself, Joan can dazzle. But when the shadows fall, what you see and what you get can be two different things. These bright young things can promise but not be able to deliver, although the original intention would always have been honourable.
This child can also overheat at times and will blow the odd fuse but will never hold a grudge. They will cool down quickly. The Sun is closely associated with Leo, and the predominantly Sun person will want to be the Star of the show. Joan will want to shine. These are very warm-blooded creatures. They need to be able to give and receive love freely.
These proud kids command respect and wilt if seriously challenged or ignored.
Joan will be ambitious but will get there with dignity and charm rather than serious push and shove. These children will manoeuvre their way to stardom. They will be very fair and honest and will genuinely love people.
The Strongest sign often coincides with that of the Sun in the Natal Chart, because the planet Mercury is the Sun's closest companion - they are never far apart. The planet Venus can also stick quite closely to the mighty Sun. So, one or more of these planets are often in the same sign as the Sun at birth, adding further strength.
However, in many cases the "outer" planets can gang up and create a very strong, but quite a different, influence. This area of the Chart will either add more weight to the colour and personality of this Child or it could add a further hue to their approach and intensity.
If there is more than one "strongest sign", which is likely, the person will have various facets to their approach and abilities, and so will scatter their energies somewhat. If there is one singleton sign, which outweighs the rest, Joan will be more easily recognised by the attributes of the sign involved.
Gemini Dominant (Strength: 178.50)
One of the strongest signs in this Chart is Gemini the twins. The Gemini character can be seen as two people, because they do tend to run hot and cold in most areas - they can be very inconsistent. Much of this can be put down to boredom as they are very restless and need constant stimulation to satisfy their curiosity. These kids are impatient and will have such an abundance of nervous energy that they can run themselves into the ground. They love to learn new things, but they can lack staying power.
Gemini is often seen as the butterfly of the zodiac. It pops from one source of conversation, to another idea, to another friend, to another place. They just like to flit - feeling that to stop is to die. Joan will be witty and smart, with so much chat that during school holidays you will be subconsciously reaching for the mute button to get a bit of a break. These kids will never be stuck for an answer but they can get their facts wrong. That will not stop them. They will improvise and come up with quite a credible ending to whatever tale they are telling. But generally the Gemini child is very sociable, lots of fun, they are amusing and they just want to be friendly. Joan should get along very well with any brothers or sisters, although there are bound to be a few good arguments. But these should be harmless, just communications the "Gemini" way.
The neighbours will all know Joan, as this child will love to keep in touch. Joan will love to keep up with the gossip. These kids will probably have plenty of books, CD's, computer games - anything that is actively stimulating or anything that they can share and use to compete with others. Gemini teenagers need their own telephone.
Gemini rules the lungs and our precious oxygen, which is why these people particularly should never smoke - although many adult Gemini people do, because they tend to be quite highly-strung and nervous.
Virgo Dominant (Strength: 147.63)
Virgo is one of the strongest signs in this Chart, so Joan will be quite prim and proper in many ways. These children will always strive for perfection in whatever they do. They will go to painstaking lengths to achieve the ultimate, which will seldom reach their expectations anyway. Joan will not only try to produce a flawless result, but they will need to understand the task in hand too. These children will dissect and analyse every bit of information and persist in their efforts to establish the full picture. Joan will probably toss a lot of 'whys' into general conversation. This child will not be shy in asking a whole lot of questions and will persist until thoroughly satisfied. They won't be aggressive in their pursuit of answers, but will hang in there until a satisfactory explanation has been found. The nature is tenacious and highly focused.
These children set very high standards for themselves, but also expect the same from others. In fact, their greatest problem is expecting nothing short of perfection. They are self-critical and will be quick to pick holes in personal efforts and the efforts of others. This can be quite hard for the rest of the family to take. Joan can be too meticulous and too critical, so will need to learn to relax a little. This child will be a worrier, who needs to learn to accept our less-than-perfect world, together with the rest of us less-than-perfect people.
These children are usually fairly quiet. They are serious and love to learn, especially through reading. This sign is usually very good with their hands. They can be very creative and will love to experiment with building toys and the likes. Dad's tools can be a source of fascination, but never be afraid to spend money on materials for creative expression. These children will take great care of their possessions and will also be very sensible in how apparatus is used. You will also find that Joan will seldom demand anything that is not totally necessary. In fact, you will probably get a long and involved discussion explaining exactly why a particular gadget is needed.
Often these children will be fussy eaters and can become too concerned with their health, diet, and just plain simple hygiene. The sign of Virgo leans heavily towards work, but it also shows a particular interest in health.
Aries Dominant (Strength: 77.03)
The sign of Aries features strongly in this chart. Aries the Ram is indeed the caricature of the Ram in the best of traditional head-butting ways. Unfortunately, there is only enough room for one Ram in any household for the atmosphere to ever verge on tranquil. Two or more will spend most of their lives competing fiercely to gain control, while the rest of the immediate environment will spend their time looking for a gap in the fence to escape. This little character will be boisterous, energetic, noisy, and impatient. The vocabulary will be full of "I, me & mine". Joan will want to leave no stone unturned in a quest to cover every inch of ground there is to cover. These kids will never give up and will never give in. But, interest in projects, hobbies and friends is often short lived. There is always something new and exciting to move on to. The Aries personality is essentially very warm, very loving, and very honest. These kids are enthusiastic, impulsive, and always buzzing about something. They are passionate in all that they feel and all that they do. They will have a strong competitive streak, but their eye will be on winning rather than just making up the numbers. Aries rules the head, which will be so obvious as you watch this little one rush headlong into another trail-blazing venture. They can also be susceptible to headaches and fevers. This fiery character simply "overheats".
Joan does show this strong Arian influence so there is the suggestion to instigate some steady discipline very early in life to use all of this powerful energy constructively.
The Houses in the Natal Chart are very significant because they indicate the areas where we have been born lucky or where we have serious work to do. The Houses define the areas in life where we expend our energies, where we find recurring issues with which we have to deal.
The basic Natal Chart is simply the blueprint of the Heavens at the exact time of our birth. But in reading a child's chart, there is a different emphasis. Obviously a child "reflects" its everyday environment during the formative years and this Natal chart for Joan acknowledges these reflections. In the case of a child, many of the attitudes and habits are reflections of the up bringing and environmental influences. Often work needs to be done to reach out for the opposite House to achieve a fuller picture.
Sixth House Dominant (Strength: 107.11)
6th House: This House is where the child develops work ethics and a sense of pride in workmanship. This House is about "duty". It is about precision - "getting things right". This House is the classroom, the school environment, and learning. It is about books and study. This House is also about health and personal habits. Attitude and mental competitiveness begins here in the 6th House.
Joan has a lot of strength in the 6th House. The 6th House, for the child, is the classroom and the first taste of independent thinking. It is the unconditioned learning. The general feeling of this House deals with work, service, and general attitudes to health and diet, etc.
Joan will take schoolwork seriously and will work patiently to produce results - good results. From a very young age, this child will be aware of their objectives and will instinctively know that success is not going to be handed to them on a plate. In fact, if something does come too easily to this child, it will not be "good enough" for them - it will be a yardstick for them to automatically improve on. These children will also work very hard to train themselves to be useful and dependable. They will aim to be accepted as totally trustworthy and honourable by always being in full command of the facts.
In many ways, this House influence produces kids who need to relax a little - have a bit of fun - not take life quite so seriously. Joan can try too hard to impress others with dedication and sheer application. These kids can struggle to build up their essential sense of self-esteem and self worth. The harder they try, the harder it gets to be content, and this is exactly what they have to do - learn to be content. A pet for Joan to look after can be a great idea. This teaches a lot of lessons, will give immense satisfaction, and will also divert the innate need to be quite so perfect all of the time. A small garden plot could reap the same benefits.
Joan must learn to reach out a grab some of the positives from the opposite House - the 12th House. There is a need to let the creative side of the psyche emerge. There is a need to learn to wallow in a few daydreams and chase a few rainbows. These kids will always take life seriously, and they will always be practical. But they will enjoy a fuller life if they allow themselves to put their responsibilities to bed now and again.
Fourth House Dominant (Strength: 95.06)
4th House: The early home environment. The Mother influence. Early development.
Joan has a very strong 4th House influence. The 4th House is the early environment and the teachings within the home. It pertains quite strongly to the maternal influence. The 4th House is also indicative of new beginnings. Joan will be strongly attached to the Mother figure, who will have a powerful influence in the way this child thinks and behaves, providing the yardstick that this child will use to run its own life later. A few psychological tensions can be present. There is a real need for emotional security, even within a relatively secure family atmosphere. These kids will tend to suffer quite badly from low self-esteem and will seem to be a lot more emotional than the rest of the family. It is likely that this child will burst into tears very easily and will be rather clingy and moody. But, they will make their feelings felt by throwing a sulk, or by storming off, rather than by throwing a tantrum. Consequently, they often do not clear the air. They will let their hurts linger for far too long because they will never forget.
Generally, these kids will probably have a very good memory, which they can put to good use throughout life. Everything about the childhood will be carefully preserved and committed to this vast memory bank. These kids, more than any others, will have a deep and lasting attachment to their childhood and all the memories that go with it.
The 4th House is at the base or the foundation of the Chart so it is a powerful point in any chart. This little one will need to reach out to the opposite House, the 10th House to look beyond the home, in order to reach out beyond the parental influences. The 4th house dominant child can use what they have learned to become who they want to be in their own right. They need to learn to look outwardly and reach for the stars, rather than cling to the past forever.
Third House Dominant (Strength: 78.66)
3rd House: This House is about early education. It is about mental stimulation that provokes learning through interaction and experience, and then using the lessons. The area for the child is the playground, playgroups, mixing with children the same age. It is about becoming familiar with the local environment and the neighbours. This is essentially the House that is all about communication at it best and its beginnings.
Joan has a lot of strength in the 3rd house. The 3rd House is all about early education, the local environment, brothers and sisters, and communications. It is the beginnings of 'standing on one's own feet'. It is the forming of opinions - getting to know people outside of the family home. It is discovering the mediums available that supply information, such as TV, Internet, telephones, newspapers, and using the good old vocal chords.
Within the home environment, Joan is likely to not only start talking early, but also, once started, may never stop. There will be a fair few arguments. This child loves a battle of wits, and sometimes being contrary is the best way to get the whole family talking. But guess who will always have the last word! And with age, this is likely to become a bit of a game, especially when it is assured of getting a reaction. These children will like to prove how smart they are and the best way they can do this is through their great word power.
Joan is bound to be very active in the local neighbourhood. This child will enjoy participating in any social activities, but will especially love talking to anyone that will listen. This is the sort of child who can brighten up a lonely person's day just by being friendly. So, in all probability you will have quite a well-known entity in your midst.
Joan is bound to be very curious and very active, but will get bored easily. This youngster will be continually looking for stimulation, looking for new things, new places, and new people.
This house is very concerned with speech, communications, and learning. A message to the child with such a strong 3rd House is to reach out to the opposite house, the 9th House, which involves higher learning. It is more about the big wide world. Perhaps the message is to use this gift of words to teach, to pass on what they have learned. It also suggests that this little one needs to learn to 'listen' rather than simply talk. It suggests a need for guidance and training to look deeper and not be content with superficial knowledge. And that way they will expand the ultimate learning and get recognition and respect for these natural talents.
Balance of Elements and Modalities
The four elements figure strongly in the definition and interpretation of the signs. The dominant element(s) can help to identify the personality type quite successfully. In many cases, there will be a combination of more than one, which indicates more flexibility.
It can be quite easy to spot the "fiery" personality, the "down to earth" type, the "head in the clouds" Air person, or the weepy and emotional water character.
The Fire signs are Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. Fire is all about impatience, enthusiasm, and energy. These kids will want to be involved in everything possible - and well as "impossible", at times. There will be a passion for life. A dominant Sun, Mars, or Jupiter will add to the predominance of fire characteristics in this chart.
These children are high-spirited, energetic and impulsive. They can have very quick tempers. They can be domineering and can be argumentative, but will not usually hold a grudge unless there is a good and valid reason. Fire signs are a little like a tropical storm, - a cloudburst, and then glorious sunshine. And then these volatile youngsters will genuinely wonder why everyone around them can be left quite wounded.
Joan will be independent, self-willed and self-motivated. This child can be a handful and will certainly need some discipline, but this needs to be administered carefully. After a heavily emotional confrontation with a fire child, the best time to discuss the situation is when the energies have cooled down (parents have to be saints at times). Joan will no doubt argue, but if the timing is right, will take any reprimands on board - but - do not expect any admission of being wrong. This kid will never go that far.
If any authority figure cracks the whip and overwhelms this child with no explanation, they will simply react even stronger and louder. The fire will intensify. If Joan gets the feeling that adults always use power arbitrarily, without rules or accountability, it will make Joan a fighter against the authorities.
Joan will be open and forthright, preferring to act out in front where the world can see. If you encourage honesty you will get just that. It may be coupled with a brutal frankness and a seeming insensitivity, but this would seldom be intended. These kids just do not stop to think.
Joan could find it difficult to cry or show emotions because it will be difficult to admit that something is wrong. The aim will always be to appear so strong and independent. It is very important that these children do learn to expose their feelings more. But remember - the aim with the predominantly Fire child is to tame them - not to break the valuable spirit.
Lack of Water
When an element is "lacking", it can indicate a need to encourage the essentials of this "lack", to help round the character off a little. This often happens over time anyway, quite naturally. But watch Joan and you will see if any building needs to be done.
But rather than see this as a "weakness", it is preferable to accept that one or more of the other elements comes through more strongly. The apparent "lack" can also be compensated within the chart anyway. It only needs one powerful aspect to add some weight.
The Water signs are Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.
The absence of Water in the chart for Joan suggests that there may be some difficulty understanding the deeper meanings of issues. This little one could be a little lacking in emotional intensity. This is not to say that Joan will have no feelings, but it does mean that the emotions are not overly exposed and really do not run deep. These kids are not so apt to form extremely close friendships or relationships where they may feel smothered or threatened by strong emotional demands. They recover quickly from emotional bumps and scrapes. They never let disappointments get them down. So, depression is never likely to be a problem.
Many of the aspects of not having water signs are positive. But on the negative side, Joan should guard against becoming rather callous and cold. These kids can give the impression of being detached and unfeeling. Intuitive skills are not readily available to those with few planets in Water signs. This will not be a major problem because these types are not particularly interested in the realms of intuition or whatever. They do not trust intuitive knowledge anyway.
DOMINANT MODES or QUALITIES
The "Modes" or the "Qualities" often indicate how we initiate our actions. The Cardinal types are firm, confident, and are better starters than they are finishers. The Fixed types are quite reluctant to step outside of the comfort zone. They prefer to stay with the tried and true. The Mutable people are flexible and adaptable but they can be flimsy.
But, again, in many cases there is a combination of more than one mode.
The mutable signs are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces. These are the signs of change, and the essential mark is adaptability.
Joan will either try to find a way around a problem or will give way in the face of the attack. This quality of mutability is not a weakness, because although these kids do bend like a reed in the wind, they do manage to survive and persist. Joan will believe in flowing with the energies of the surrounding environment. These kids can adapt to the characteristics of the current company. Nevertheless, these children have a core of inner truth that enables them to make quite a subtle impact on those around them. By appearing to give way, these kids can sometimes be quite manipulative.
The mutable signs except Virgo are known as dual or two-bodied signs (meaning that they have two distinct sides). This reflects the mutable person's ability to have more than one facet. Joan will actually thrive in unstable and changing circumstances. These kids are able to grab what they need and adapt very quickly to new conditions. In fact, often boredom will set in if the situation is not constantly changing. With all of this adaptability, however, Joan can be rather devious at times. It is hard to pin these types down to a definite course of action or a commitment. They feel that such commitment limits the freedom. Not being forthright can be a major problem, except possibly with Sagittarius.
Given any kind of resistance at all, these kids simply change direction and take the line of least resistance, even if inappropriate.
Lack of Fixed
The Fixed modes are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius.
Because this chart is void or nearly void of fixed signs, Joan could be better at starting things than finishing them. Either these kids become bored with something soon after beginning it, or they take on so much that they do not have the energy or focus to accomplish anything. This can cause lots of difficulty in various aspects of life, such as frequently changing interests, friends, hobbies, and even personal beliefs on many of life's weightier issues. Children with a lack of the fixed quality should be encouraged to persist and to realise their own inner strength. They need to be taught to hang on and not give up. Praise for completion of even the tiniest project will help to instil a sense of success.
As adults, we look back on our youth and say, "if only I knew then what I know now". How many of us also, as we get older, "discover" a talent that has never been recognised and say "if only". If this Chart report simply indicates a talent that can be nurtured early in life, as opposed to laying dormant for too long a time, or forever, then the author's objective has been reached.
