You will find that the interpretation of your chart is written in simple language, uncluttered by astrological jargon. If a statement appears to contradict another statement, then you exhibit these opposite qualities at different times in your life. For example, a statement that you are highly sociable and gregarious and a statement that you prefer solitude seemingly contradict each other; this means that you vacillate, and need both sociability and solitude at different times.
The astrological factor that the interpretation is based on is also given. The astrological factor is given for the benefit of astrologers and students of astrology. If you are not a student of astrology, then obviously the factor will not be meaningful to you, and you can ignore it.
If you find this interpretation of your birth chart interesting and informative, you might want to discuss your birth chart with a professional astrologer to learn more about the astrological influences on your life.

Chapter 1: General Characteristics
Your fundamental needs, values, and orientation towards life are symbolized by the four astrological elements. Each person has their own unique balance of these four basic energies: fire (warmth, inspiration, enthusiasm), earth (practicality, realism, material interests), air (social and intellectual qualities), and water (emotional needs and feelings).
Your "elemental make-up" is described below. Remember that most people are "unbalanced" or lopsided, and if you are lacking or deficient in a certain element (or elements), it simply means that you need to consciously develop that aspect of yourself to learn to appreciate and/or to work harder in that dimension of life.
Sometimes we overvalue the element that we are least endowed with, sensing it as a lack within ourselves, but more often we neglect or ignore it. The qualities described below will be reiterated and explained in more detail in the following chapters.
Your life is apt to be full of emotional extremes, turbulence, joy and sorrow, arising out of your own passionate nature and unpredictability. You are impulsive and temperamental. For you, everything is intensely personal and colored by emotion. You may have difficulty viewing a situation from a detached, impartial or rational perspective, and you have little inclination to structure and order your life. However, developing self-discipline, organization, and focus is essential. Otherwise you will be prone to tremendous moodiness, alternating between high inspiration and despondency.
At times you feel much internal pressure, for you have two strong impulses which can be in conflict with one another. The desire for independence and freedom, the need for self expression and ego recognition, and an urge to leave the past behind in order to propel yourself into new experiences may be at odds with other, equally strong needs: attachments to people and to the familiar, a compelling urge for emotional closeness and union, and a desire for security. Balancing these two drives is a significant challenge for you.
Even though your life is less even and perhaps less stable than others', most likely you would not change it, for you are very alive, sensitive, and responsive to the ever-changing, dynamic quality of life.
One of your primary challenges involves developing a stable sense of security, solidness, and a steady rhythm in your life. Cultivating self-discipline, patience and endurance, and learning to accept realistic limitations will enable you to be more productive and to actualize some of the ideas and creative impulses you have. You are not always interested in practical applications, the actual work involved in realizing a desire or compromises for the sake of practicalities.
You feel out of place in the world at times, restless, discontent, unable to find your niche, dissatisfied with mundane reality. Positively this may spark your exploration of the creative, imaginative, or spiritual side of life. However, you tend to resist growing up and learning how to effectively deal with adult responsibility. You also tend to be either bound up with the past or projecting into the future, ignoring the present moment - what actually is. To become more present and grounded, you may find the following helpful: getting massages on a regular basis, doing gentle regular, rhythmic exercise like walking or yoga, and eating substantial, heavy foods.

Chapter 2: How You Approach Life and How You Appear To Others
The following is a description of your basic stance towards life, the way others see you, the way you come across, the face you show to the world. In Chapter 3 you will read about the "The Inner You: Your Real Motivation", which describes the kind of person you are at heart and where your true priorities lie. Read this chapter and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between them, in which case "the inner you" may not shine through and others are in for some surprises when they get to know you at a more than superficial level. This chapter describes the costume you wear, your role in life, while Chapter 3 talks about the real person inside the costume.
You appear gentle and soft, and you act rather reserved with others until you know them well and feel it is safe to be open with them. You have a strong need for emotional security and a sense of belonging, and are deeply attached to the past: your heritage, roots, family, cherished friends, familiar places, etc. Making radical changes or moves away from what is known and safe can be very painful and difficult for you. You tend to cling and hold on to people, memories, possessions of personal or sentimental significance. Having a home, a safe haven, is very important to you.
You approach life emotionally and subjectively and are sensitive to the emotional atmosphere, the subtle undercurrents of feeling in and around you. Instinctive and nonrational, you are often unable to give a clear, simple explanation for your actions. Something FEELS right, or it doesn't.
Your emotions and personal loyalties tend to color your thoughts and opinions. You view life from a very personal perspective and often cannot mentally detach yourself from your own personal bias and prejudices. You are apt to be concerned primarily with how something affects you and those dear and close to you, rather than with the principle or the broader social implications. For instance, you may be very patriotic and feel that whatever "my country" does is right without really knowing much about the other nation's policies or point of view. Put simply: if it is good for me and mine, it is good. If it is not good for me and mine, it is no good.
You are tenaciously loyal, protective, and supportive of those you care about, and have a very strong nurturing, motherly nature (regardless of your gender). You empathize with others and intuitively sense the feelings and needs of other people. Compassionate and sympathetic, you are easily moved by others' pain, and you are often the one others seek out when they need comfort, reassurance, or help.
Your moods fluctuate and change frequently and you are sometimes open, sometimes withdrawn emotionally. You communicate nonverbally and appreciate a person who can pick up subtle cues and hints, rather than having to make everything explicit.
You never forget either kindness or unkindness shown to you.
Bright, alert, quick of tongue and/or of movement, there is a youthfulness about your manner and appearance regardless of your chronological age. You also always appear busy and active, and somewhat restless. You need mental stimulation from your environment, or you will rapidly get bored.
You are direct, honest, and to the point -- some might say excessively so. However, no one has to guess who you are or what you want -- you're pretty much up front. You radiate a refreshing enthusiasm and vigor when you're at your best. You seem to enjoy competition without taking it terribly seriously.
There is an air of universal sympathy, gentleness, and nonjudgmental acceptance about you which draws people in need to you. Because you have a good deal of intuitive insight or psychic perceptiveness, you're able to say or do just the right thing for them. You need to beware of fostering dependency in those people, however.
You have penetrating insight into people and a keen eye and ear for the hidden, unspoken, behind-the-scenes elements in life. You may seem intense and make other people a bit uncomfortable at times. There is also a sexual quality in your manner which can be quite alluring, in a subtle way.
You may well have been discouraged from freely expressing yourself, and an overemphasis on being acceptable, conforming to certain standards and expectations, and generally not getting out of line is apt to inhibit you quite a bit.
Your attitude towards life is governed by your feelings and you tend to seek cordial understanding with others. You have the ability to perceive other peoples' spiritual needs, and trusting your judgment, they are likely to come to you for advice.
You may find it difficult to get ahead because you lack the vitality to do so. You tend to wait for better conditions and have the desire to accomplish a lot without straining yourself too much. Quite often, though, your plans just seem to hang in the air.

Chapter 3: The Inner You: Your Real Motivation
Although you appear gentle and soft, and you are sympathetic towards other people (as explained in the previous chapter), you are also a "warrior". You sometimes feel torn between these two aspects of yourself: the sensitive, tender-hearted, home-loving side, and the assertive, competitive, risk-taking side. Often people who first meet you think that you are a "softy", but later find out that you are a person with a strong will and aggressive in pursuing your goals.
You are a person who thrives on challenge, and you often feel that you must battle your way through life, depending upon no one and nothing but your own strength, intelligence, and courage. You believe in being totally honest, true to oneself and one's own vision and convictions, even if that means standing alone. Honesty, integrity, personal honor, and authenticity are your gods, and you have no sympathy for weakness of character in others.
You crave the freedom to do things in your own way, and you work very well independently. Cooperating with others or carrying out another's will is not your style. You like to be the chief -or to go it alone.
You love action and if others are settling down into a nice, comfortable little rut, then you are always ready to stir things up, do something new, make changes, bring in some fresh blood. Routine and sameness are like death to you. You are not afraid of trying something that's never been done before, and even though you may be seen as a fool sometimes, you also discover, invent, and initiate things that others will later emulate. Taking risks and following your own star are the breath of life for you, and you wilt (or get very frustrated and angry) if you cannot do this.
You are spontaneous, impulsive, direct, enthusiastic, and assertive. You believe in the power of positive thinking and positive action, and you think of yourself as a strong person -even invincible. You hate being ill or in any way in a position of dependency. Accepting your own human limitations and emotional needs is often difficult for you.
You are basically aggressive in your attitudes and have less facility in the receptive arts of relating to others, picking up subtle messages and nuances, listening, nurturing, and harmonizing. Often you are so fired up about your own projects or goals that you inadvertently run over or ignore other people's feelings and interests. Being receptive and appreciative of others' contributions, ideas, and feelings would go a long way in improving your relationships. Your impatience to get on with things causes you to be rather insensitive, and to therefore alienate others unnecessarily. You also frequently try to accomplish your ends by using anger or some version of a temper tantrum. You would gain much by learning to slow down, relax, and just let things be sometimes, but your energetic, restless nature rarely allows you to do this.
Your career, reputation, and public image are very important to you. You have a strong desire to be influential or make your mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy you; your ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for your unique effort and gifts. You may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
Your emotions are very intense and you are excited quite easily. Love is very important to you and you are constantly seeking emotional fulfillment, but you will not waste time with casual relationships.

Chapter 4: Mental Interests and Abilities
You are more of a poet than a rational scientist, for your mind does not function in a strictly logical, linear fashion. The language of music, art, or poetry is natural to you, and you are also able to think in highly abstract and symbolic terms. Translating your thoughts and impressions into concrete, everyday language may be difficult for you at times and consequently you may appear less intelligent or at least less quick-witted and verbal than others. This was especially true of you as a child, and you probably daydreamed a good deal also. You are intuitive and are able to sense what others' thoughts and feelings are, even before they say anything to you. You often form an opinion about a person or situation without much factual knowledge of them, and your impressions are usually correct. You can be somewhat absent-minded and you become so immersed in your own thoughts that you overlook things in your immediate, tangible environment. You are extremely open-minded and believe that anything is possible. Intangible or spiritual forces seem just as real to you as anything in the concrete world. Your imagination and your sympathetic understanding of other people are two of your greatest gifts.
You have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and wisdom and for an ever broadening understanding of life. You are the perpetual student and will be involved in higher education, philosophy, or religion. Law, broadcasting, publishing, or the field of communications are also areas that interest you. World travel and studying other cultures are also strong urges of yours.
You have a sharp mind and a sharp tongue as well, and love a vigorous discussion or debate. You express your thoughts in a clear, decisive, convincing style. You dislike vagueness and fuzzy thinking, and are quick to point out the discrepancies in another's argument. At times you are verbally aggressive and abrasive to others, and you tend to overstate your case or offend people by your unadorned frankness. You can be an effective spokesperson, lawyer, or salesman. You have an aptitude for writing as well, particularly criticism or satire. You enjoy mental challenges and mental work.
Even though you can be a decisive and convincing speaker (as indicated earlier), you also have a highly imaginative and intuitive mind. With this combination, there are a number of possibilities: you could accurately articulate the images and fantasies you have, you could forcefully convince others of your own brand of idealism (or illusion!), or perhaps you swing from being very clear and direct to being rather evasive or poetic. The following describes the more fluid, nonrational aspect of your thinking.
You are open and receptive to subjects which defy rational explanation, such as psychic phenomena, mental telepathy, metaphysics, etc., and you could teach these subjects to others. Your mind is imaginative and inspired and you have an aptitude for art and creative writing.
You have very strong opinions and may be seen as fanatical, extreme, dogmatic, or one-sided in your views. Forcing your "truth" onto other people or playing intellectual power games with them, seeking to manipulate their thinking along certain lines, can lead to much conflict and opposition in your life. You may also be keenly aware of the ways the media, popular artists, and advertising manipulates and shapes our thoughts, for you see through hypocrisy, sham, and surface appearances quite readily. You have an intense way of communicating, and you may threaten others unintentionally.
Your thinking is somewhat sober and you visualize everything with complete reality. You tend to be a late bloomer and could be a bit narrow-minded or selfish in matters of love. You seem to have a certain fear of being left out in some way.
You have a positive outlook on life, are far-sighted and prudent, and have a wealth of thoughts. You tend to plan large scale projects or ventures and are likely to be very successful. You have good business associations and also love social meetings.
You tend to be guided by wrong impressions of people and could easily deceive yourself about their character. On the other hand, you also may try to exploit other people's weakness and may even think of becoming involved in things that are a little shady.

Chapter 5: Emotions: Moods, Feelings, Romance
Your desire for harmonious relationships and surroundings is so strong that you avoid personal confrontations or any expression of intense, unpleasant emotions. You are an idealist who would like to paint the world in pastel colors, and live in peace and harmony with others at all times. You are able to see points of similarity and unity with people who are vastly different from yourself, and befriend many different types of people. You are a considerate and thoughtful friend, and have a real flair for making others feel accepted and appreciated. Inwardly you are often torn with indecision and are much more at odds with yourself than others would ever guess from your smooth, even disposition.
You are emotionally expressive and often dramatize your feelings, acting them out or blowing them out of proportion. You can not hide your instinctive emotional reactions to people or situations, and you don't make any pretenses about your personal sympathies or antipathies.
You have a childlike openness and playfulness which is very appealing to others, but which sometimes gets you into trouble, as you take risks on impulse or whim.
You are easygoing, agreeable, and tolerant, willing to overlook others' mistakes, forget the past, and begin again on a positive note. You enjoy making others comfortable and happy, and sometimes overdo your generosity. You often feel that "everything will turn out all right no matter what I do", and so become lazy and lackadaisical.
Your emotional attitudes and instincts tend to be quite liberal. You so not want to be caged or dictated to, and you feel everyone is entitled to do as they please in their personal and emotional affairs. You tend to surround yourself with people who are unusual, creative, open-minded, unpredictable, restless, and changeable, and your relationships, with women in particular, may be somewhat unstable as a result. However, you enjoy an element of surprise and unpredictability.
Your love feelings and desires are easily aroused but it may be difficult to sustain your romantic interest in a relationship after the initial, exciting "chase and conquest". You enjoy a partner who is dynamic and alive, someone with a strong independent streak, and you do not like things to become too peaceful or predictable in the love arena. You want to see sparks fly once in awhile, even if that means instigating a fight.
Promoting beauty, the arts, or entertainment can make you very happy. You want to contribute something positive and loving to the world at large and you want to be recognized for your beauty, artistic gifts, or loving generosity. You may "marry" your work - that is, be more involved in your career than in your private life. You are a natural hostess or diplomat.

Chapter 6: Drive and Ambition: How You Achieve Your Goals
You are noncombative, noncompetitive, and something of a pacifist. You will give something up rather than fight for it. You may seem weak-willed or ineffectual, for you do not have a strong ego drive for personal achievement and material advantage, or for winning at the expense of someone else. Being first, being best, being on top doesn't mean much to you, and you can be quite happy in a supporting role, working for the benefit of others or for a cause that you believe in. You are gentle and impressionable and are motivated by less mundane and less tangible things than most other people. You may have difficulty formulating clear, definite goals for yourself and making your way in the world. You have many dreams, high ideals, and a strong mystical or religious impulse. You also have a creative imagination and can successfully apply yourself to art or music. You have a sensitive physique and need to maintain good regular health habits in order build strength and stamina.
You have passionate convictions and will fight for them when challenged. You are willing to dedicate a great deal of your energy and force to an important cause, and you'll act decisively on your beliefs, rather than simply espousing them.
Sometimes you get so involved and identified with your ideas that you cannot really be receptive to anyone who opposes you philosophically.
You dream up creative solutions to problems and take an imaginative, unusual approach to getting a job done. When difficulties arise you prefer to avoid conflict and confrontation in favor of more peaceful or subtle methods of resolving problems. Working to help others or for a cause that transcends your own narrow, personal interests is satisfying for you. You have an artistic flair and appreciate the colorful, unique, or strange.
You are highly ambitious and will drive yourself (and others) mercilessly when you want to achieve something. Competition can become a deadly serious and rather ugly thing with you, as if your very life depended upon winning or conquering. Your relationships with men may be especially fraught with conflicts and power struggle. You are capable of tremendous effort, but you must beware of burning yourself out.
You have confidence in yourself and a healthy self-assured attitude. You make up your own mind and have a clear idea of where you are headed. You don't feel the need for recognition from others, but are likely to receive recognition anyway.
You are strongly attached to your home and family, and harmony in your surroundings is important to you. Having a good sense of team work, you have a strong desire to feel complete oneness with people around you.
You are very generous and your style of life is likely to be grandiose. A very gracious host, you display a warm heart and gladness when you meet other people. You have the ability to radiate your inner happiness and show your affection for others.

Chapter 7: Growth and Expansion: Areas That You Enjoy
Your strength lies in your ability to be innovative, open to new progressive concepts, willing to experiment and to reject customs and traditions when they cease to serve any positive function in the present. Also, you have an expansive view of the world, one that includes humanity and not only your own small, personal circle.
You are very open-minded and deeply curious about distant places and ways of thinking and living that are different from your own. The urge to travel widely and to experience as much of the world as possible is very strong in you. The study of philosophy or religion also interests you a great deal. You benefit from your contact with other cultures, and you may be involved in linking those who are far apart geographically or philosophically.
Your gaiety, enthusiasm, optimism, and a positive, energetic, upbeat attitude generate a lot of opportunities for you. You enjoy being spontaneous and taking risks. You must have a great deal of personal freedom and independence, and prefer the "wide-open spaces" to a very rigid, structured lifestyle. Your sense of humor and playfulness enable you to make it through the rough spots in life, as well as to bounce back when those gambles you make do not quite pan out. You enjoy surprises and exploring new territory, both intellectually as well as physically.
You are inclined to look on the positive side of things and always are hopeful for the future. You like simplicity, are modest, and content to live a plain and ordinary life. Having a sense of tradition, you may be partial to history or religion.

Chapter 8: Areas That Challenge You Or Are Difficult For You
You have an innate distrust of groups and/or a cynical attitude toward society that may leave you feeling out of step and unable to participate in activities with your peers. Overcoming a sense of aloofness and alienation from others is an important task for you.
Fear of the unknown, of change, and/or of death may plague you. You strongly resist changes and transitions rather than greeting them with curiosity or a spirit of adventure, which makes them much harder for you.
On another level entirely, you are very careful about joining forces, and especially your material resources, with others. You want to keep your own and other people's property and assets very distinct.
You strive and struggle a great deal with your ideals or spiritual aspirations. You may go through periods of self-denial, asceticism, and serious study of religious philosophy and spiritual practices, or you may lose heart and become cynical about religious ideals, but never quite divorce yourself completely from your idealistic concerns.
You tend to be your own worst enemy, demanding inhuman perfection of yourself and harshly criticizing or persecuting yourself when you don't measure up. Perhaps circumstances in your life have been extremely difficult and demanding, reinforcing your belief that you must struggle alone.
You are capable of tremendous effort and of overcoming great odds and handicaps. Through these efforts you develop your power and inner strength. However, don't make life harder than it is. Give yourself permission to let up sometimes, and realize you are only human.
You often may be coerced into doing things that you don't want to do, leaving you frustrated, irritable and touchy. You could turn hard and unforgiving toward others and may break up some important relationships.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which you instinctively and habitually revert to when under stress - a mostly unconscious process and one which you are apt to overdo because it is so familiar and thus easy for you. The direction you need to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
Your path lies in developing yourself as an individual, discovering your own strengths and joys, giving expression to your uniqueness, and letting yourself shine and stand out from the crowd. This involve becoming a leader, even though your instinct is actually to be "one of the Indians" rather than the "chief". When under stress you are apt to seek safety in numbers, to go along with the group. Also, you may believe that striving to do your personal best and to excel is wrong or selfish, but you should let go of this notion. Finding your own center and doing what gives you delight and energy is the most worthwhile contribution you can offer the world at large.
The arena you are most likely to wrestle with these issues is in your dealings with money, financial security, tangible assets and possessions. The qualities described above are ones you need to integrate in tangible ways: how you make a living, building assets and a secure material base, what you do with the resources you have. Try to avoid over involvement or entanglements with other people's money matters, legal business, and personal affairs.

Chapter 9: Originality and ImaginationAreas Where You Are Creative, Unique, Unstable, or Compulsive
You grasp new concepts quickly and are interested in new technologies, discoveries, and innovations. Unconventional ideas and creative, original approaches to problems are very attractive to you also. You are easily bored and may have trouble concentrating on one idea or task at a time. You have an inventive mind.
Your creative self-expression has a very imaginative quality, and you have a particular affinity for drama, theater, film, and other artistic mediums in which creative fantasy plays a major role.
In love and romance, also, you often have glamorous fantasies that have little to do with reality.
You have a probing, penetrating mind and are highly analytical and critical in your thinking. Work that involves research, investigating mysteries or hidden causes, or deep study and analysis suits you very well.
You are also a convincing speaker, bringing others around to your own point of view by the intensity of your convictions.
You tend to be a bit ruthless in your pursuits and at times may be rather thoughtless, impatient and combative. Having an intense sense of self-preservation, you are not likely to compromise and may have frequent upsets with others.
You may feel lonely and tend to think that others neglect you or misunderstand you. But at the same time there is a possibility of deception, lies or fraud in your associations with others, so try to be very careful.

Chapter 10: Generational Influences: Your Age Group
In this chapter we will discuss characteristics and traits of your generation. Of course, you may not share all of the characteristics of your generation, but you are greatly affected by the tone that is set by your generation.
The first topic is "The Subconscious and Emotional Drive of Your Age Group". In this section we will describe a deeply felt urge, even compulsion, of your age group. This deeply felt drive comes to the surface with great force and power, and consequently leaves in its wake considerable upheaval and change. The second topic is "The Ideals and Illusions of Your Age Group", that describes the dreams, fantasies, and spiritual aspirations of your age group. The third and last topic is "What is New and Different in Your Age Group", which describes areas in which your age group tends to be innovative, inventive, unusual, and also where it may be unstable and unreliable.
The characteristics described below may affect a group of people for anywhere from a few years to about 30 years. There are one or more different astrological factors described in each of the three sections below.
The Subconscious and Emotional Drive of Your Age Group
You are part of a 15 year group of people that are driven by the need to find an ethical standard and a clear sense of what is right and what is wrong. There is a subconscious drive to straighten out all the world's evils and create a world of perfect order. There is a feeling of repulsion to anything ugly, dirty, or grotesque. Oddly enough, there is also often a fascination with these very things that are so distasteful, and often a feeling of hopelessness and despair about the world's condition.
These inner, emotional and conflicting qualities are reflected in the attitudes and life styles of your generation. Most people of your age group are conservative and ethical, and a small minority goes to the opposite extreme and relishes being strange or unusual in appearance, and sloppy or even grotesque in manners and appearance. There seems to be no middle ground for your generation. Usually, the rebellious type of behavior comes out during adolescence, and tends to subside thereafter, and your age group tends to be very conservative in later life.
Your age group is not very good at compromising and tends to have strong ideas about what is right and what is wrong. There is a strong feeling that you must extinguish evil in the world. Certainly, fostering good works is very commendable, but a categorical and simple-minded response to complex issues is not helpful. Your age group will undergo great transformations in attitudes regarding Good and Evil and will swing to great extremes. Your generation will also make great contributions in the areas of medicine and nutrition, ecology, and education.
The Ideals and Illusions of Your Age Group
You are part of a 14 year group of people that have very intense psychic sensitivity and imagination. Your age group is very attracted to the strange, weird, and unusual. The sense of the macabre and bizarre is strong, and this is reflected in much of the music, art, and fashions of your age group. Novels and movies with mystery and chilling suspense are also popular with your age group. Emotional depression, drug use, and suicide are likely to be relatively high in your age group. There is also a deep mystical sense, and Eastern religions and meditation are very attractive to your age group.
What is New and Different in Your Age Group
You are part of a 7 year group of people who are unusually self-willed, proud, and egotistical. You are a group that defies authority and insists on having its own way. Parents and school teachers found that it was extremely difficult to discipline your age group. Governments that are repressive to individual expression and freedom meet a great deal of resistance from your age group, and you tend to rise up against any form of tyranny and oppressive rule.
