Dominant Character Traits for Tanya

Ascendant (Rising Sign): Libra
On first impressions you tend to be quite diplomatic, polite and often eager to please with an easy smile. You have a genuine wish that people like you but may feel that your veneer of charm can be too superficial to reveal the real you. You're likely to have refined and symmetrical features, possibly with a centre parting. Certainly your appearance is pleasant, if not beautiful, especially in your elegant clothes. The lesson here, is that you should not judge people by appearances alone nor should they judge you in the same way. Be careful not to judge a book by the cover.

 

In a relationship you seek a dynamic, decisive and go-getting type. You like to confront all new situations in partnership and may have many social contacts whom you deal with on a one-to-one basis. You're not as indecisive as you seem; you may even become quite political or even dictatorial if you sense an injustice.

 

Sun in Libra Moon in Gemini
You have a lot of the element of air in your chart which means that you operate in the mind, a thoughtful type with many interests. You're a natural at bringing people and ideas together a person with enough charm to talk the hind legs off a donkey! Even so, you always see two sides to everything and find snap decisions awkward. You're also sociable and love to gossip among your friends. Perhaps you are a little unemotional and can lapse into a superficiality that avoids the depths and complexities of life. Brigitte Bardot and Roger Moore also have this planetary combination in their birth chart.

 

Alternative Ascendant (Rising Sign): Scorpio?
If you were born some 12 minutes later your rising sign would be different and the interpretation would be as follows:
On first impressions you tend to make strong judgments about people and situations. Sometimes your instincts are uncannily on the mark, and sometimes they have to be revised. To others you initially appear rather intense and secretive. You'll only reveal a certain amount about yourself until you've probed your inquirer to the full and feel safe. Perhaps this stems from your childhood where there were many guarded secrets.

 

Throughout your life there have been a series of crises that have forced you to make some drastic changes in personality. In the process you've become very self-analytical and found ways of healing yourself.

 

In a relationship you seek a calm, down-to-earth partner whose basic simplicity can cope with your turbulence and forcefulness. you may feel more powerful and stronger when you're dressed in the color black and you may also have penetrating eyes.

 

Sun in the 12th House
TWELFTH HOUSE (PISCES is the natural ruler.)
This is the field of experience in which you are challenged to explore your inner depths in solitude and silence; to discern between illumination and illusion, between spiritual growth and escapism. Before you can transcend the definitions of reality that confine you, you must be willing to let go of them. These definitions often have to become uncomfortable before we want to let go of them. Disillusionment and the experience of "bad luck" can create the desire to move through and beyond what is causing the pain. Traditionally this house is associated with; the unconscious; self undoing; sacrifice; karma; secrets; secret enemies; hospitals and institutions of confinement.

 

A great deal of your sense of identity and self-esteem comes from helping people who need your support without any personal reward for yourself. And though you don't blow your own trumpet about it, you'll get recognition for your acts of compassion from God or mankind. Your sacrifice may be in working for charity, in an institution like a hospital, saving lives, as a medium in healing or psychic work, or even devoting ourself to your children. Until you come to terms with your true selfless role on earth and the inner power of your subconscious, life can be very confusing experience. In any event you don't have a clear idea of yourself and find it hard to be open and confront people directly. You prefer to operate behind the scenes. In your moments of solitude you can either fantasize about the person you could become or gain immense inspiration.

 

One of the main ways you express your confidence and uniqueness by being obviously different and behaving in a highly independent, even self-willed manner. At times you an act or take decisions suddenly and spontaneously. Sometimes these decisions can radically alter the course of your life and means of self-expression.

 

Evidently you're not the sort of person to follow tradition or social conventions for the sake of tradition. You do as you wish, even if it arouses controversy as it did when you rebelled against your father in your early years. Certainly people find your electric vitality exciting, but some may find it hard to get close to you, since being an unpredictable, free agent keeps you so alive and able to be yourself.

 

Even so, you can at times lack confidence in yourself especially when dealing with other people who may see you as inhibited land rather reserved. You find it hard to be light and superficial as you take your role with people and duties towards them quite seriously. But with time as you grow to know yourself, You and other people will come to appreciate some of your many qualities such as being a dependable and trustworthy partner.

 

Though you may have suffered a few significant set-backs in your early progress, you have the potential to achieve worldly success and in the process gain a strong sense of inner confidence.

 

Moon Conjunct the 9th House
NINTH HOUSE ( SAGITTARIUS is the natural ruler. )
This is the field of experience in which you are challenged to broaden your philosophical perspectives and to realize your highest potentials.Traditionally this house is associated with; the higher mind; higher education; law; in-laws; grand children.

 

Turning from the outer trappings of your character, we now look at your inner personality. You have a need to experience all aspects of life, to travel, to explore other cultures and to learn. In this quest you may live abroad or study anthropology, history, welfare, politics, through reading or perhaps the 'home university'. But it may surprise you that the bedrock of your philosophical belies and attitudes to life are strongly colored by your emotions and upbringing. Some of this may stem from one parent - perhaps your mother - acting as your teacher. Certainly you've inherited an instinctive understanding of life with God as your protector. From this basis you yourself are a natural teacher, able to instill your knowledge in those you care for. You feel at home in an atmosphere of learning.

 

You have a friendly, pleasant and warm disposition. Generous by nature, you like to look after people, but also like to be cared for. You really know how to relax, but can become very lazy and self-indulgent, eating too much and at times putting on weight.

 

Your ability to voice these feelings through the written and spoken word can be excellent, if you put your mind to it. You have a wonderful way of recounting ordinary day-to-day family or domestic events as an amusing never-to-be forgotten anecdote with choice words ad imitations of expressions. You also have the gift of public speaking, with a way of capturing the mood of the audience, through you may not have exploited this talent. You are a natural at building up and easy communicative rapport with almost anyone and can make a person feel at home and enjoy listening to you. Not only can you talk, you also have an uncommon common sense, using your memory of experiences from the past to take day-to-day decisions.

 

You are very excitable, and express your rapidly changing, feelings spontaneously and openly, but at times you seem like a child when you get a bit hysterical. It is a restlessness that makes it hard to settle down. Domestic life is hence unstable. These impulsive reactions can even make you accident-prone.

 

At times you are stunned by the depth and intensity of your feelings and those that you can unwittingly stir up in other people, especially women. Sometimes your behavior or strong reactions lead to a chain of events beyond your control. For example the issue of control and secrecy in relationships can lead to their destruction.

 

There is no easy solution to this problem. There will be a time when you are driven to understand and explore the depths of your complex emotional nature. Delving into your subconscious or your past can be a painful process but you may feel it necessary to cleanse yourself, to bring your repressed feelings to the surface or get to grips with any irrational guilty sentiments. Through this personal therapy you may start to insist that feelings, both your own and those near you are brought out into the open.

 

Home life does have its extremes, even a few crises from childhood. Personal privacy, especially with family issues is important to you. But your experiences and instincts enable you to see the potential in people and in places. Forgotten, outdated or derelict buildings or shops can be restored, rebuilt and renovated with your ruthless approach.

 

Being fairly emotionally well-balanced, you use your feelings well and manage to pick up the moods of anyone you meet. In next to no time you build up an emotional bond.. You have a soothing touch and a warm, responsive and sympathetic side to your nature. People can get quite attached to you and letting go in personal relationships never quite happens. You seem to keep in contact from time to time. The emotionally easy side to your comes through your mother, with whom by and large, you have or had a close emotional rapport.

 

Mercury in Libra in the 12th House
TWELFTH HOUSE ( PISCES is the natural ruler.)
This is the field of experience in which you are challenged to explore your inner depths in solitude and silence; to discern between illumination and illusion, between spiritual growth and escapism. Before you can transcend the definitions of reality that confine you, you must be willing to let go of them. These definitions often have to become uncomfortable before we want to let go of them. Disillusionment and the experience of "bad luck" can create the desire to move through and beyond what is causing the pain.

 

Traditionally this house is associated with; the unconscious; self undoing; sacrifice; karma; secrets; secret enemies; hospitals and institutions of confinement.

 

Your mind tends to consider an issue from all angles before taking a decision. This indecisiveness can be a problem with small questions like whether to have tea or coffee, but it is also a gift when it comes to being able to see another person's point of view. In your striving to reach a balanced judgment you may act as devil's advocate. So you can be clever with political or legal debates as well as contracts and documents.

 

People are one of your main interests: you love to discuss their romantic and social relationships. Though you have this sense of justice and an argumentative side, you can also express yourself with charm and tact on a superficial level. But your most rewarding conversations are always on an intimate one-to-one level. You have to talk your ideas through with a a partner.

 

Clarity and focus doesn't always come easily to your mental processes. It is only when you're alone that you can really reflect and clarify your thoughts or express your ideas through the written word. Being a little self-conscious of some of your ideas, you prefer to discuss them behind the scenes rather than voice them publicly. This may have inhibited your progress in your early education.

 

So you are well attuned to fantasy, the unspoken word, dreams and subtle or spiritual concepts. At times this sensitivity can lead to worries or a paranoid fear that people are discussing you behind your back. But these fears are often groundless and a problem that you grow out of enabling you to use the gifted, imaginative and intuitive mind that you possess.

 

To other people, you appear younger than you really are and can initially seem a bit of flighty and nervous. Certainly your nervous system and metabolism are fast. On first meetings you start off by becoming extraordinarily talkative. Anyone would have thought you had just kissed the blarney stone. You're good at interviewing and being interviewed, provided you let the other person get a word in edgeways. Your curiosity encompasses everything you come into contact with, to every answer, another question pops into mind. This is part of domino banter of light one-to-one conversation at which you are a past master. It may be hard for you not to discuss seemingly trivial subjects like schools or your brother or sister or the weather or some article in the newspapers, at the outset. But conversations have to start somewhere and you're good at getting them going. As you know, it is important that there is more behind this mentally alert mask or you'll be reminded that empty barrels make the most noise.

 

I have also found a number of interesting points that occur to many people like yourself, who have Mercury in the rising position in their chart. The first is that someone's hands, perhaps yours, may have been significant in some way at, and there was much chatter or around your birth. Your hands are still significant in some way and an important part of your self-expression.

 

Another is that duality is a constant feature in your life, you may have two or more names and a split image. That is you project a certain style for one set of people and other for another circle or set of circumstances. In this way you can lead a double life of some kind.

 

From time to time, you feel the urge to further your learning and expand your no doubt extensive knowledge. Or at least you have the capacity to absorb much information if you put your mind to it. As well as academic studies, books and travel are all sources of learning to you. You love to relate your experiences acting as a teacher, instructor, guide, adviser and philosopher.

 

With keen common sense, you have an inherent understanding of diet and health, which you incorporate into your daily life. Actually you have the talent to sell, promote of give tips on these subjects or anything to do with the home, property, cooking, gardens, psychology, history, literature,, family trees and anything connected with people's personal lives. You can and probably to talk at length on any of these subjects. But to be fair you can also listen and respond well. You can explain matters with much care, forethought and understanding. You can also relate well to women and communicate with children on there wavelength. Perhaps this came from experience in your childhood where you had a good mental rapport with your sister.

 

Certainly you have an urge to apply these mixed mental and communicative skills into your working life, though public recognition and acknowledgment from those in authority, do not come so easily. Even with one of your parents, you've had to argue your case and prove the value of your opinions and your skills with the written and spoken word. The same pattern occurs in your career, where you have to back-up your hunches with facts or interpret the meaning behind observations. Your opinions can often be out of step with the prevailing popular climate or what may be politically advantageous. Of course, that is what makes them so interesting and insightful.

 

Venus in Leo in the 11th House
ELEVENTH HOUSE ( AQUARIUS is the natural ruler.)
This is the field of experience in which you are challenged to establish a relationship with group consciousness and contribute your gifts to community. Traditionally this house is associated with; humanitarian organizations; associations; friends; hopes, wishes and and ambitions; shared ideals.

 

When it comes to personal relationships, you're a romantic at heart, capable of bubbling with warmth and open affection. Once you've found that unique and special person - someone you can feel proud of - you'll love to show them off. You're loyal provided there is mutual respect and admiration. You live for attention from your partner, especially when you're acting the clown. Admit it, flattery will get your lovers everywhere.

 

Besides dramatic love affairs, you enjoy entertaining in style, being in the spotlight with your rich colorful clothes, or mixing with the elite in crowd. Fancy dress, as well as the arts and theatre, has a particular appeal. And you're drawn to theatrical and creative figures. You love to do things in style and your taste is clearly for the big, bright and dramatic.

 

Where you express this taste and your artistic inclinations is in your choice of friends. You're drawn to kind, easy-going people. Certainly you're friendly, you enjoy your social life and have a wide circle of friends. Man of whom come from the world of art, music, literature or a field like public relations, beauty design, that is related to such fields. And you treasure elegant outings to artistic or cultural occasions with such people.

 

Shared values, mutual cooperation, attractiveness and a spirit of concord are the criteria by which you choose friends and evaluate friendships. You want to be like by the group and are prepared to follow the prescribed social code or rules of etiquette or the socially accepted style of dress in order to fit in. Of course, you won't let yourself become a slave to the norm, but this approach can be superficial. Being in with the in-crowd is one thing, but keeping up with the Jones' or hiding true feelings to get along with people, can be false.. You have to work out to what degree popularity or keeping the peace is more important than being true to yourself.

 

Many of your friendships will be with the opposite sex. Companionship is also an essential requirement for any relationship to blossom. It can happen that a long-standing friend becomes a lover. You even get your rolemodels for relationships from within your peer group. By sharing your values, they are a good mirror for you to draw parallels and such comparisons and their support helps you set your highest aspirations.

 

This ability to get on well with people within a group, also applies to teams, large organizations and collective movements. You bring to the group a sense of harmony, cohesion and can act as a mediator. As a peacemaker, you may operate in groups that deal with social issues. If you are aware that appeasement or peace at any price can be taken advantage of and does not address problems, you will have a great gift to offer the community at large.

 

Other people are drawn to your cheerful disposition and the emotional warmth you can give off. You can, if you have a mind to it, see the bright side of personal dilemmas and the funny side to yourself, which other people find endearing. You're adept at most aspects of homemaking, cooking and decorating with taste and style, gardening and looking after children with care and love and being naturally hospitable. So family life can be a source of much happiness and you're likely to enjoy a special closeness and understanding of women.

 

Indeed your feelings of love and affection can at times be far stronger and more compassionate than this. All too often your kind giving nature towards those you're attracted, appears to some like an open invitation to take advantage of you. Sometimes you end up disappointed as the affair, so full of promise, fails to live up to your expectations or you're let down in some way. Falling in love with an idealized image of a person, rather than the actual person, inevitably leads to disillusionment.

 

It is important that you try to separate your great urge to save people and help the afflicted from your own wishes and personal relationships. Otherwise you'll waver between the role of the saint and the victim. This dilemma is symbolized by the seemingly opposed roles of the Virgin Mary and Mary Magdalene.

 

Whenever you're in a social situation, a good humored side to you comes out, though you tend to be a bit over the top. You can tuck into the food and drink or expressing enormous glee and delight at seeing someone who isn't that special. But then, why not make someone feel special r liven up the occasion, be it party or entertainment? Only party poopers object and you're probably quite popular with many invitations from a variety of people, though you are drawn to personalities of substance: be it wealth or knowledge. This is one part of the story of your relationships as you're drawn towards well-travelled or well-read types and express your affection with generosity and honesty. You're not short of admirers, though you're reluctant to be tied to one person or one place.

 

Being fond of luxury, you can be extravagant, even self-indulgent and at times hedonistic. Though you can dress up in style if the occasion warrants it, you're happier in casual clothes.

 

This charm and your naturally polite and pleasant manner comes over well when you first meet people. It enables you to create the right impression, to get what you want and be given favors without threats or confrontation. You can apply your sense of color, taste and beauty to your environment and your appearance, through your choice of dress and style of presentation. On first impressions you have a magnetism that people find very attractive. To put it simply, people find it easy to like you from the start - even, though you may not be as affluent or as easy going when they get to know you.

 

Mars in Sagittarius in the 2nd House
SECOND HOUSE ( TAURUS is the natural ruler.)
This is the field of experience in which you are challenged to define and refine your personal sense of values. The things, talents, and qualities that you treasure, cherish, enjoy, and hold on to for security are here. Traditionally this house is associated with ; inner and outer talents and resources, personal values.

 

Now turning to the way you exert your energy, you're always on the go; hurrying to get on with the next project. Jumping into new activities with enthusiasm, sometimes you land on your feet, sometimes not! You relish the element of risk and set your targets high. Outdoor pursuits or sports like riding, hunting, shooting, skiing, racing, archery or brisk walks are some of the many possible outlets for your buoyant and hearty vigor.

 

As in sports, you follow a code of honor, and sense of fair play. You'll fight injustice and defend a cause. Yet you can't stop yourself preaching (or giving advice as you call it) even when, at times, it is not welcome. Sex can be a bit like that too. Sexually you're good humored, playful and athletic,, but your healthy, lusty, drive can come in the way of your high morals.

 

You are willing to work hard to advance materially in life. You have the ability to earn money rapidly but often spend impulsively. Try to look after your resources without becoming too selfish or over-generous. You tend to hold strong values.

 

What might be considered hard work by many can be turned into a labor of live by your constructive attitude. You recognize and make sure that what is necessary is also what you desire. And you can and do work hard, sometimes stretching yourself close to your physical limits. Once you have set your mind to a task, you work diligently and can successfully complete a task within the time limits. Sensible delegation and general managerial skills help get concrete results.

 

Valuing your own time, you dislike time-wasting when there are jobs to be done. However, you manage to cut through the delays, the red-tape and usually find ways of occupying yourself when you are kept waiting. Under trying circumstances, you tend to keep your anger under control, though you can be very effective when your irritation is justified. I have also found that though you have a good sense of self-control, a number of people with this aspect have a tendency to blush.

 

Jupiter in Leo in the 11th house
ELEVENTH HOUSE ( AQUARIUS is the natural ruler.)
This is the field of experience in which you are challenged to establish a relationship with group consciousness and contribute your gifts to community. Traditionally this house is associated with; humanitarian organizations; associations; friends; hopes, wishes and and ambitions; shared ideals.

 

Your attitude to life is very positive and optimistic. You're quite proud of the rich experiences and insights you have gained through travel or just living. Films can also have an influence on your attitudes. In some ways you like to personify this philosophy in your everyday life and love to pass on what you know to people younger than yourself, especially your children. But then you can learn much from children and will ant and may well have a large family - perhaps larger than you planned. You love displays of generosity - especially if you're a parent.

 

Children are but one expression of your enormous creative potential. You can be the leading figure behind large-scale creative projects, which can range from an enterprise like building a property to making a masterpiece.

 

One of your strengths and faults can be excessive pride. This is most apparent when you're describing anything that places you in the world. You may have promoted your school and educational background or described your qualifications in a way that will impress other people. You can make your Curriculum Vitae sound quite formidable. When you're going on holiday or overseas on business, you manage to let the world know about it. You're always involved inn some big project and manage to make it sound more elaborate than it may turn out to be. The same goes for your beliefs, and it is likely to be a set of values, developed by yourself, rather than a popular ideology, religion or specific party line.

 

In addition, you build up your understanding of life through your many and varied friends and social contacts. Friendship brings you many benefits including luck, protection and support. You're drawn to people from whom you can learn. So your friends are likely to include people from overseas or important, wealthy or well-read types. With your social grace and willingness to mix with all types of people, you're probably quite popular.

 

As time goes by, you will find that you will want more than just social exchange from people. You may want to participate in groups that share humanitarian, progressive or spiritual ideals. Or you may get involved in group studies, classes, clubs or associations. Not only do you find meaning through such groups., but you can participate by inspiring them with your vision and boosting morale. You can be both the groupie and the group guru. Don't take that last sentence too seriously.

 

The future always looks promising and you can suffer from having great expectations that are simply too great. Try not to have too many over-ambitious goals for the future while present projects are incomplete. Nevertheless your most successful projects are those that involve the future or that exploit your organizational skills. You can excel in throwing parties, running exhibitions or coordinating a network.

 

A born optimist, to you, every cloud has a silver lining. You are quite lucky when it comes to home and family life. Benefits came through your mother. Also, a pleasant home and the funds to maintain it always seem to be there when you are most in need.

 

Be careful not to let your blind optimism delude you into taking misguided risks like gambling or buying excessively on credit without considering the practical disadvantages. You have big dreams, which some may call fantasies or pipe-dreams because they are too way-out or that you lack the discipline or focus to turn them into a reality. But as you see it nothing is impossible. If you can muster the discipline not to get distracted by more tempting outlets and accept that immediate results will fall short of your expectations, you will prove the skeptics wrong.

 

Fortunately, you tend to be drawn to partners and friends who share your own philosophy. You lie t mix with people who enlarge and respond positively to your outlook on life and opinions on religion, politics and morals. This scope to learn through another is a great source of attraction and it is likely that you will marry someone from a different background, culture or attitude to yourself and discover it to be a richly rewarding experience. Your great capacity for love can lead you into involvement in more than one romantic relationship at the same time. Sometimes you're too generous for your own good. Bt the key to love i to be able to share your enjoyment of teaching, traveling and learning from each other's experiences. Holidays are usually a time of romance, but be careful as your love of good food and wine will easily lead to a gain in weight.

 

From an intellectual point of view, you're able to see large issues in perspective without losing sight of the details. And you get a lot out of exchanging ideas, whether it is through the written or spoken word. Among your wide range of interests, foreign ideas and attitudes may appeal. In fact, you may be blessed with a gift for languages, which would naturally enhance this interest. Moreover opportunities to follow up your interest with travel over both long and short distances are frequent occurrences.

 

Your cheerful, happy-o-lucky attitude attracts benefits and opportunities to you. Mixing with may different people and socializing is an art, you both enjoy and can be a past master. People feel at ease and confidence with you ad you can make them thing and talk big. You are especially good at working and teaching with groups of people.

 

Saturn in Aries in the 6th House
SIXTH HOUSE ( VIRGO is the natural ruler.)
This is the field of experience in which you are challenged to seek competence; to function efficiently, in your physical body and in your work. Traditionally this house is associated with ; work; health; services; habit patterns; food; diet; pets.

 

One of your main fears is to be second-best, to lose, or exist where you must follow the dictates of someone else. From an early age you may have taken the issue of authority, and orders seriously. You probably had a competitive relationship with your father or parent figure. You've always had to balance between holding yourself and your desires back, and pushing your weight around. Ideally you should be your own boss, because despite your inhibitions about asserting yourself you can make a responsible leader. On second thoughts, being so self-reliant, a more independent working role may be more suitable. Either way you bring a sense of self-disciplined energy and cautious initiative into the major tasks and structures of your life.

 

Having looked at how you turn our weaknesses into strengths, we turn to the areas you take seriously, your health and ability to run your life efficiently. From an early age health may have been a problem or at least a matter that concerned you. Though chronic health problems are possible, especially those relating to skin or bones, the solution lies in your own purity of diet, your working conditions and general sense of security that comes through routine. By taking health seriously, you may opt for a healing profession. Certainly you work well in a craft or in offering a service, where your attention to quality and details is valued. You're diligent and thorough, though you can be too much of a perfectionist and either too demanding of your staff or unable to delegate jobs. But then you would hate to be open to criticism, especially for not doing a job well.

 

From your early upbringing, you were instilled a strict set of rules and taught the meaning of self-discipline, especially by one parent, probably your father. Following rules and regulations from that time has given you an ability to work with and within the system.

 

This self-discipline combined with natural strength gives you the attitude and stamina required for sports like athletics, mountaineering, dressage or rowing. You can endure hard work for long hours when called upon and have a great ability to use your time in a highly effective and efficient manner.Sexually, you have the same self-control and, when required staying power and the ability to resist tempting offers taht aren't in your long-term interest.

 

Provided you're prepared to develop your own self-discipline, rather than have it imposed from outside as occurred in your early learning years from figures in authority, you can go far in most businesses. Yo make a good working partner and present yourself well in formal meetings. Perhaps you wish that personal relationships could be controlled in he same way. Here you find it difficult as either you act as an authority figure r your partner imposes the rules and regulations. Certainly marriage or partnership should give your life some structure, but for it to work, there needs to be a sense of equality in this area.

 

Uranus in Virgo conjunct the 12th House Cusp
TWELFTH HOUSE ( PISCES is the natural ruler.)
This is the field of experience in which you are challenged to explore your inner depths in solitude and silence; to discern between illumination and illusion, between spiritual growth and escapism. Before you can transcend the definitions of reality that confine you, you must be willing to let go of them. These definitions often have to become uncomfortable before we want to let go of them. Disillusionment and the experience of "bad luck" can create the desire to move through and beyond what is causing the pain. Traditionally this house is associated with; the unconscious; self undoing; sacrifice; karma; secrets; secret enemies; hospitals and institutions of confinement.

 

At this stage, we can begin to look at how your personality fits into the wider context of your generations. One feature common to all those born in the Sixties, when Uranus passed through Virgo, is a resistance to routine work unless you can devise your own techniques for doing a task and set the schedule yourself. You will be the first to really apply advanced computer techniques to day-to-day operations. But new technology will also change employment practices in other ways. This will result in many more freelance jobs; a situation that should suit most of you. Other features that make your generation unique are your bizarre (to outsiders) hair and dress styles. But more on all this under the Pluto Chapter. The following paragraphs will reveal hw these unconventional customs feature in your life and your reaction to them, both negative and positive.

 

In your particular case, your unconventionality is a quality to tend to keep to yourself. yes, psychic flashes, glimpses into the future, experiences with channeling can happen in your life. Your dreams are often vivid and prophetic. Though this is likely to arouse a wish to find out more about anything that is out of the ordinary, like mysticism, contact with spiritual forces and other supernatural phenomena, it is not always apparent to the outside world. You are concerned that people will dismiss your insight and experiences as weird or eccentric. Only when you feel safe will you share your interests to the genuinely curious.

 

Being so in touch with your subconscious, your imagination and the mystical real, you are aware of the fine line between sanity and madness and how easy it is to pass form one to the other. This understanding is a great gift in enabling you to get people to face the truth of their motivations behind outward behavior. The girt of seeing the rational behind what appears to be irrational or a rational solution to an irrational situation. Sometimes you just know where a person is coming from and can befriend this person on a deep subconscious level. So with a more scientific or educated background, you have the makings of a psychologist and with amore romantic background you could be a channel.

 

But there is a third more down to earth manifestation of this energy and that is as a coordinator in a group or institution. A mover and shaker of large organizations, you are able to turn conventional wisdom that governs corporations, prisons, hospitals, charities on its head. But whether you participate in these bodies or just watch them from a distance is another matter.

 

With such strong humanitarian interests, you find t difficult to tolerate people who are not as progressive as yourself. In many respects especially in the areas outlined above you're ahead of your time and not afraid to stand up and be counted. Certainly your courage in being yourself and doing your own thing no matter what social customs dictate, is a quality that people will admire in your. But don't be too selfish.

 

In spite of or perhaps because of your outrageous behavior you are likely to have many friends without being tied down to one circle. Like a flashing neon light, you're alive and people know it in your presence.

 

Further to what I have said above, you are quintessentially a child of the Sixties, being born at that the peak of the turbulent and revolutionary epoch as two powerful planets make contact. You are part of a a highly-independent group who demand freedom at all costs and will play a major role in forcing society to change its attitudes towards the quality of life, in terms of health, employment, and the treatment of animals among many other spheres. This desire for independence means that you must have the personal freedom to be master of you destiny in your working life and yet you want to be part of a larger hole. As a result many of you prefer to operate on a free-lance or semi-independent basis or as part of a larger franchise.

 

In some ways your life will entail both building on the progress of the Sixties as well as clearing up the legacies: the backlash of the Pill and free love.

 

Whenever you begin to relax something unsettles you. For example, the telephone always rings when you're in your bath, in the middle of a meal or falling asleep. It's probably true to say that these disruptive events happen to everybody. The difference is that they have a more unsettling effect on you. Always expecting a shock, you are very high strung, nervous and prone to mood swings. You need to be close to exciting people but find these types seem very detached.

 

Neptune in Scorpio in the 1st House
FIRST HOUSE (ARIES is the natural ruler.)
This is the field of experience in which you are challenged to develop your own unique identity and present it to the world. Traditionally this house is associated with personal appearance.

 

This chapter explores your compassion, the nature of your deepest spiritual yearnings and most elevated ideals. First we look at the ideas of your generations which are governed by the passage of Neptune in Scorpio between the mid-1950s until 1970. There is a great fascination among you for mysticism, the supernatural and anything hidden. Many of you have great psychic talents, though whether you can tune into it depends on the rest of your chart. However, there is also much confusion about the relationship of sex and love, which has even compounded by the widespread problems of infections. But then not all this applies to you personally...

 

On a more personal level, you're highly sensitive able to tune into people around you and pick up vibrations and atmospheres in your immediate environment. Your sensitivity is so great that you sometimes take on the ways of anyone who is with you for a length of time. Or you behave in a way that is sympathetic to them, becoming the person they want you to be rather than the person you are. But then you're not entirely sure who you really are and as such, can be easily influenced and prey to self-delusion. This isn't always to your disadvantage as you can play so many roles, acting the part of the martyr or the savior according to circumstances. You can and will be deceptive if you feel that someone is trying to tie you down or that sticking your neck out will hurt someone. Sometimes you give the impression that you are living in a dream world and act in a manner that make you seem more vague than you really are.

 

Most people born since the last War have this configuration in their birth charts. It spans generations who are very conscious of the sacrifices necessary to enforce world peace. On the negative side, this energy can surface in a few of you through the abuse of drugs or drink. I do stress here that it applies to only a few of you and that it is a problem that can be resolved. However, within all of you there is the capacity to bridge ingrained cultural prejudices. and a spiritual mission which is explained in the next chapter.

 

By tending to see only the good in an individual, you can set yourself up to be deceived or seriously misjudge a person. To make matters harder, love to you should be nothing short of a perfect ideal: a mythical fairy tale experience. Until you can dispel some of these illusions about people, you're bound to find that ordinary married life falls way short of your expectations. Trying to escape the one-to-one reality through fantasy, drink and the like, will not quell your inner restlessness. To make your life whole, you must strive to relate to others in an equal manner, to be treated as they treat you. At the same time, you must work at your gifts in music or the arts and direct your devotion to those who really need it, not trying to save your fallen lovers.

 

To you, anything s possible. As a result you are often involved in new schemes and ventures that require gambles and taking risks. Your incessant quest for this material or spiritual bonanza could take you to many different places all over the globe. Try not to let yourself get into a muddle, out of your depth or deceived in some way on what a friend of mine who has a similar aspect calls Gullible's Travels.

 

These intuitive and artistic gifts can be applied to your career. Your talents can help the progress and interest you gain from your work in any field, though art, music, fashion or work that is in some way connected with the sea will allow you to use your full potential You are also helped in your work by your ability to feel your future direction, even if you can't spell it out in words.

 

Pluto in Virgo conjunct the 12th House Cusp
TWELFTH HOUSE ( PISCES is the natural ruler.)
This is the field of experience in which you are challenged to explore your inner depths in solitude and silence; to discern between illumination and illusion, between spiritual growth and escapism. Before you can transcend the definitions of reality that confine you, you must be willing to let go of them. These definitions often have to become uncomfortable before we want to let go of them. Disillusionment and the experience of "bad luck" can create the desire to move through and beyond what is causing the pain. Traditionally this house is associated with; the unconscious; self undoing; sacrifice; karma; secrets; secret enemies; hospitals and institutions of confinement.

 

When it come to your subconscious motivations, you should first see yourself as part of a generation with deep inner urge for perfection, who resent criticism and can get obsessed by details and style. The quality rather than the quantity of life in relations to nuclear power, pollution of the environment or food, health and natural living is, for many of you a burning issue.

 

Surprisingly to some, there is within all of you a deep-seated urge to be of service and to be fulfilled through work. but meaningless jobs are not for you, and part of the price has been to bear the brunt of massive unemployment. As radical changes like phasing out factory production lines occur, the answer may lie in the revival of ancient crafts and specialist skills.

 

There is a latent force like a raging storm within your psyche that threatens to erupt and possess you. However, an interest in psychology, the occult and meditation will help you to confront tan d tune into this inner power. You have remarkable insight into people and you're often instinctively aware of a person's strengths as well as their weaknesses.

 

To put you into the wider context, you have an aspect in your chart that lasts for over a hundred years form the 1940s. People like you, born during this century,c an develop a strong sense of destiny and spiritual purpose. There is within your lifetime and opportunity for a mass awakening of consciousness based on the rebirth of ancient beliefs. Whether you can contribute and become part of this movement is up to you, but we at Equinox hoe that this chart will in some way help you on your journey.

 

As mentioned at the top of the page and in Chapter 8, being born in the Sixties you have a powerful force within you. Sometimes you may find yourself taken over by your nerves or a restless, destructive urge to rearrange society. In the late seventies as this point in your chart was triggered, riots broke out in the streets. However, as yo move through the 1990s a much more productive side to this force is emerging. At first your generation expressed themselves through the raw medium of punk rock and produced several computer whizz kids and hackers. Soon the world will witness how you will drastically alter our lifestyle both ecologically and through the microchip. Of course yo must be aware that all this is on a collective rather than a purely individual scale. But your generational contribution is relevant to your life.

 

Sometimes experiencing intense emotions like love, hate, jealousy, or vengeance, with such force, yo wonder what has caused the feelings to arise. You want to understand the roots of emotional problems and how to cure them. Such self-destructive tendencies and compulsive moods, may have been inherited from a manipulative or even psychic mother or aggravated through your relationship with her. You have a great urge to reform yourself and shake off the past. Yet you can never change your psychological make-up and genetic inheritance, simply define and refine these feelings.
