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 emotions and feelings rule you and you are easily influenced by your moods and by the feelings of those around you. Because you are so sensitive to your environment, you need to be in an atmosphere that is positive and relatively free of psychic garbage. Otherwise you absorb it and end up feeling badly yourself. Highly sympathetic, you readily sense what others feel inside (whether they express it or not), and this deep emotional rapport can be both a gift and a curse: you can get extremely close to those you care for but you also feel other people's feelings so strongly that you identify their emotions or problems as your own. Learning to discern the boundaries between yourself and others is important. Furthermore, you need to respect these boundaries: other people may need more personal space and separateness than you do. Your tendency is to want to merge with the ones you love, which can be interpreted as demanding or smothering by people with less need for and capacity for emotional closeness than you possess.
Your sensitivity and compassion and imaginative faculties are highly developed, and you may find it difficult to communicate all that you feel in logical, rational terms. Words seem inadequate, and the language of touch or music or visual imagery may be much more natural to you.
Unless you have astrological energies that indicate otherwise, you are prone to be rather passive, possibly lazy, and also quite sensual. Weight problems are very possible.
Fortunately, as you will read in the next chapter, you do have an active, spirited way of expressing yourself, and this helps you overcome tendencies to indolence. You pick yourself up and keep going after being emotionally bruised. You are a survivor. You can become very angry when frustrated, so try to find ways to vent anger when necessary.

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 meet life head on and throw yourself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. You are direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all your dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, you project a confident and sometimes arrogant appearance to others. You often lack tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. You are self-reliant and don't depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. You like to be original and do not mind going it alone. You may feel that you do not fit into groups very well, and that you do not naturally blend in and cooperate with others very easily. You like to be either a leader or a loner.
You are a doer and thrive on freedom, challenge, and activity. You tend to think in clear, black and white terms, and to be somewhat simplistic in your outlook, which enables you to act in a very decisive and self-assured manner. When inspired with an idea, you feel such a sense of urgency and excitement about it that you will often charge ahead and try to implement it in a rather bold but poorly planned and crudely executed way. Patience and careful attention to details are not your forte. However, you never accept defeat and will have brilliant and unprecedented successes and discoveries, as well as painful failures. To you it is far better to make mistakes than it is to play it safe and never try.
You are scornful of what you see as weakness or passivity in others and also of the human tendency to imitate and follow. You are not a follower. Others see you as a strong individual, and perhaps brash and brazen as well. You present a strong front to the world and generally do not allow others to see your vulnerable or insecure side.
Despite the fact that your core self is quite a bit different from the face the world generally sees, you have a strong desire to be seen and recognized, to be acknowledged, and to have a significant influence on people in your environment. You may do remarkable things in order to be noticed. However, you often don't get the full recognition you wish for.
You may come across a bit scattered, nervous, or restless, as if you can't sit still. You seem alert and quick, but sometimes a bit on edge. You tend to stay perpetually busy, and would find handiwork of some kind to be soothing.
You have a rather generous, open, broad-minded demeanor, and you like to do things in a big way. If you do this primarily to impress others, you will find that many people prefer to avoid you. Even without meaning to, you can seem a bit arrogant or preachy.
You often come across to others more abruptly or even antagonistically than is necessary to achieve your aims. And naturally if people perceive that you are trying to compete with them or run them over, some of them will put up a lot of resistance to you and your objectives. You might be more successful if you tone yourself down a bit and show some consideration, without completely sacrificing your own needs and wants.
You have a radiant, winning personality and others see you as a person used to achieving success. Broadminded, you are willing to give others the benefit of the doubt. You are helpful and tolerant as long as your moral and ethical standards are respected.
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.
You are likely to acquire a very powerful position and will gain public recognition for your efforts. You may even achieve a degree of celebrity in your sphere and would make an excellent politician.

Chapter 3: The Inner You: Your Real Motivation
There are some significant differences between the way you express yourself, as described in the previous chapter and many of the traits discussed below. Though you value self-reliance and independence, you are also very attached to family and close friends. You need the emotional support and nurturing or your family circle, but because you like to appear strong and fearless, you often hide your need for emotional support from others. It is possible that there will be conflict between your independent streak and your need for warmth, closeness, and emotional support, but there need not be: you can accept and express both sides of yourself.
You have powerful emotional attachments to the past, your family, your childhood, those places you associate with safety and security and your beginnings. Maintaining a connection with your roots and heritage and keeping family bonds strong are very important to you. Loyal, devoted, and sentimental, you tend to cling to whatever is dear to you, be it person, familiar place, or cherished possession.
You are sympathetic, nurturing, supportive, and very sensitive to the emotional needs of other people. You like to be needed, to care for others, and you often worry about the people you love. You have a very strong need for a sense of belonging and acceptance, and you center much of your life around your home. You are more concerned about people and their feelings than with power, achievement, or position in society. Kindness, consideration, and tenderness impress you more than any sort of honor the world can bestow.
You are primarily emotional and your views are often dominated by your feelings and by your own personal, subjective experiences, rather than reason, logic, or abstract principles. It is difficult for you to judge situations in a fair, objective manner for your personal sympathies and loyalties usually enter in. You take things very personally, and sometimes build a wall around yourself to protect yourself from pain and rejection. You feel rather shy and vulnerable at heart. You also tend to be moody, experiencing frequent emotional ups and downs. You need to have a place and time in your life to withdraw, introspect, dream, and replenish yourself; otherwise you become cranky and unhappy with those around you.
You function in an instinctive, nonrational manner and like to immerse yourself in creative activities where you can express your feelings, imagination, and instincts. You often love to cook, since it can be both creative and a way to nurture and nourish others. You also have a great affinity for music, because it evokes and communicates feelings that may be difficult or impossible to put into words.
Your compassion, sensitivity, and imagination are your strong points. Your faults include an inability to release the past and go forward, clannishness and prejudice, and a tendency to be self-pitying when you meet hardships in life.
You are a private person and inclined to withdraw in very public and impersonal social settings. You prefer to work at home or in a very personal small business.
You invest a lot of your creative energy into your home, your family, and your inner life.
You tend to see things from your perspective only and to be rather subjective. You also enjoy talking and expressing your views but you don't always listen as well. You have a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and need constant mental stimulation and activity.
You are positive, vital, energetic, active, a go-getter. You enjoy competition, and your initiative and self-confidence make you a winner.
You aim high, dream big dreams, and have a tremendous sense of what is possible for you to achieve. Overconfidence, grandiosity, lack of humility, and/or extreme discontent in modest circumstances may be your faults. Generally, however, your great expectations and enterprising spirit lead to success. Business, especially when there is an element of risk and speculation, suits you well.
Along with your energy and drive you have high ideals and an active fantasy life. There is a dreamer and an idealist in you, as well as a doer and a fighter. You want to win but not at others' expense, and this maybe something of a dilemma for you.
You are very open and receptive to the spiritual, intangible, and subtle realms, and can easily receive or give conscious guidance based on your inner attunement. You take many things for granted, such as the existence of an afterlife or the effects of subtle influences like aromatherapy, spiritual healing, etc. These things seem obvious to you, whereas to many people they are a matter of conjecture or even illusory. You may not realize you have spiritual gifts because they come so naturally to you.

Chapter 4: Mental Interests and Abilities
You are highly interested in inner, subjective, and personal issues, and your thinking is based more on feelings, intuition, personal experiences, and prejudices rather than reason or logic. Intellectual abilities and accomplishments without heart or soul mean little to you. You are empathic and would be an excellent counselor, for you are a sensitive listener and deeply interested in a person's feelings and inner life. In addition to psychology, you are drawn to education, art, poetry, music, or mythology. You are not especially confident about speaking in public, but will open up and share your thoughts in small, intimate groups. You enjoy keeping a diary or personal journal and reading the chronicles of others' lives and personal development.
You have an introspective turn of mind and may enjoy keeping a journal or a record of your dreams and personal experiences, or learning about psychology, history, and the inner workings and emotional foundations of your own life. You are studious and something of a bookworm.
You speak clearly, decisively, and convincingly, and thoroughly enjoy a vigorous discussion or debate. You would be an effective lawyer or public speaker, a salesman of ideas. Others tend to listen to you and follow your lead, and you have a talent for directing people and making decisions. You also have an aptitude for writing, especially criticism or satire.
You have a very restless and curious mind, and an endless thirst for knowledge, information, learning, or at the very least, mental stimulation. Intellectually, you like to cover a lot of ground, to see the big picture and grasp the overall concepts. You naturally seek to discover how all of the small pieces fit together in some grand pattern, and what it all means. Details, technical precision, and the practical working-out of your theories or insights are not really your concern. Your "broad brush strokes" approach can be a bit sloppy.
The study of Universal Law, religion, philosophy, or other fields which are primarily abstract and conceptual appeal to you. Broadcasting, publishing, communicating to large groups of people, and teaching are all very suitable for you. When you have enthusiasm for an idea it is very hard for you keep it to yourself. There is a bit of the evangelist in you.
Suspicious that appearances are superficial and masking the "real nitty-gritty", you are always probing beneath the surface to uncover the deeper, hidden aspects of a matter. You are interested in anything secret or mysterious. You have great powers of concentration and a penetrating mind, with an aptitude for research, investigative reporting, or detective work. You are also keenly observant and seem to have "x-ray vision" regarding the inner motivations and intentions of other people. You could make an excellent psychotherapist, uncovering the deeper causes and roots of a person's emotional problems. You may also be drawn to esoteric or occult studies and the development of unusual mental powers. Stories of mystery, intrigue, and espionage fascinate you.
You know what you want to accomplish and have a tendency to strive toward a superior intellect. You are prudent and a convincing speaker with the ability to influence others. But you push yourself tirelessly and tend to overstrain your nerves.
You have strong feelings of love and an emotional need to talk about love problems. Beauty also is important for your emotional contentment and you dress very tastefully. Your are kind and popular and give complements from the bottom of your heart.

Chapter 5: Emotions: Moods, Feelings, Romance
You are very sensitive, cautious, and shy about showing others your feelings. Though you may love and care for someone a great deal, you rarely express those feelings openly and freely. Very often your love for someone will be expressed by trying to help them, doing something tangible to benefit them, or serving them in some way.
It is also difficult for you to receive warmth, affection, or appreciation, for you often feel that you don't really deserve it or that "they don't really mean it". You can therefore seem rather cool and aloof, much more so than you feel.
A deeply ingrained critical attitude often makes you difficult to live with. You need to learn to be gentler and less of a perfectionist with others and with yourself.
You have a sympathetic nature and instinctively reach out to people in need of help. You also have a deeply ingrained tendency to want to improve or "fix" other people's lives, which can be annoying to the person who has no desire to be changed or "helped" in this way. For you, affection and caring must be expressed in tangible acts or service of some kind.
You are uninhibited and spontaneous and will often do something unexpected or humorous in order to loosen people up and get them out of their ruts. You crave emotional stimulation, excitement, surprises, and anything new. You love to feel free and unfettered.
You are a sensitive soul, a dreamer, very much attuned to the world of imagination and fantasy. You often retreat into your own inner world in order to escape the harshness of everyday living in the "real world". Gentle and often rather passive as well, you will not fight or assert yourself, even when you need to. You are very sympathetic and somewhat naive emotionally and must guard against being taken advantage of.
You seem to have a quick temper, are somewhat irritable and tend to get upset easily. You also may have frequent changes of mood; in fact, your feelings could change from one minute to the next. You also tend to act without sufficient deliberation.
In love, you are more interested in a person's sense of humor and intelligence than in their physique. You like a partner who is mentally alive and who keeps you guessing a little bit, and you become restless and bored with someone who never asks questions, never changes or surprises you. Talking, sharing ideas, going places together, and learning new things together is very important to your happiness. You need lots of social stimulation, are something of a flirt, and like to have many friends of both sexes. A possessive, jealous partner is very stifling for you.
For you, caring and affection must be expressed tangibly, and you love giving and receiving gifts. You value luxury, comfort, and elegance very highly and appreciate beautiful things. You can be self-indulgent and extravagant. Being overly possessive of people you love and of your belongings is something you need to beware of.
In love and romance, it's important for you to be able to deeply respect your partner. You look beyond the superficial qualities to see their inner worth (or lack thereof), before you let yourself really fall for someone. In fact, too much glamour or flashiness is something of a turn-off to you. You are capable of a mature, lasting loving relationship and seek a mate who is deep, loyal, and committed. You may be drawn to someone older than yourself.
You have an affectionate nature and are in harmony with your environment. Charming and friendly, you are on good terms with most of the people in your sphere. Your friends and associates mean a lot to you and you relate to them in a positive and loving way.

Chapter 6: Drive and Ambition: How You Achieve Your Goals
You are extremely strong-willed and you pursue your goals and desires with passionate dedication and determination. You are capable of total concentration and tremendous discipline, and you are very difficult to influence or sway once your mind is made up. When you want something, you can be very one-sided and almost obsessed with it. You are very instinctive and do not always consciously know why you feel as strongly and deeply as you do.
You also tend to be secretive and unwilling to reveal your aims and intentions, and the intensity of your will and desire may not be apparent to others at first. However, you are very forceful in a quiet and subtle way. You often manipulate or force your will upon other people, without being overtly aggressive. You are not interested in confrontation but are a formidable foe if you meet opposition or aggression from another. You are courageous and have a rather primitive, raw side as well.
You are attracted to feisty, dynamic, strong-willed people, and you seem to need a lot of fireworks in your personal relationships. You can be very combative, or get involved with people who are. Ideally you will join with people who are energetic and ambitious, but not too domineering or aggressive.
You have a rather cocky, confident, we-can-do-it attitude which people in your environment pick up on quite readily. Inspiring, motivating, and encouraging others to go out and do their very best is one of your innate gifts. You have faith in the power of action and boldness, and enjoy imitating new programs and projects.
You are inclined to rely on other people and expect too much from them, leaving you with a feeling of being short changed frequently. Always looking for an easy way out, you tend to sit back hoping for your ship to come in.
Your career is apt to involve protecting, caring, nurturing, or "mothering" in some aspect. Home, family relationships, cherishing the past, continuing a tradition are also featured. You're apt to be quite popular through your profession or business.
Innovation, discovery, originality, experimentation, and opening up new channels of understanding are important aspects of your life's work. Your ambitions in life, as well as the way you achieve those goals, are unique or "alternative". Concerned with future trends and the new, you're apt to be ahead of your time in many respects.
You have a lot of energy and are determined and ambitious in the pursuit of your goals. But you have a tendency to change your aims or objectives frequently, are quite restless, and always ready and excited to start something new.

Chapter 7: Growth and Expansion: Areas That You Enjoy
You have an innate shrewdness, and the ability to develop a clear strategy and follow it carefully in order to reach your goals. You also have a natural sense of order, structure, and self-discipline. You are likely to excel, both because you are ambitious and because it is very important to you to do a professional job, no matter what field you are in, or how humble the task.
Your career or contribution to the world at large is likely to touch many people's lives in a very positive, helpful way. You aim high and have an innate confidence and trust both in your own abilities and in life in general, which enables you to go far. You want to do something BIG with your life, and you attract the support you need to do so, for your aims are not solely for your own personal benefit. You want to give something back to the world, or to improve others' lives as well as your own.
You have an optimistic and positive outlook on life with a heart big enough to embrace the whole world. Subjects that deal with high-level thought appeal to you and you are always looking for ways to expand your horizon.
You have the ability to go far and to establish your position in life successfully. Chances are that success will be more rapid than you anticipate. You are always planning ways to expand your position and have a strong desire to acquire wealth.
You are psychologically balanced, have an abundance of feeling and just pour out your happy feelings. Calm, optimistic and kind, you are loving and affectionate to people around you. Your marriage and family life is likely to be happy and fulfilling.

Chapter 8: Areas That Challenge You Or Are Difficult For You
You have difficulty asserting your will and desires directly and openly. You also may suppress your anger and aggressiveness. Developing self-confidence, courage, and faith in yourself are important tasks for you.
You may have nebulous but ever-present guilts and fears that are difficult to pinpoint or eradicate. It's as if you don't trust Life itself, and are always seeking ways to defend yourself from its dangers and its unknowns. You must learn to overcome your ingrained habit of discouragement and anxiety, and to see the world more as a friendly place than as a treacherous one.
Basically shy, you may become a bit inhibited when talking with other people. You tend to withdraw from others and like to live a humble, quiet live in seclusion. You may get involved with a group of a secretive nature, although not one to join groups in general.
Not very adaptable, you tend to be rebellious and fight hard against oppression. This could even lead to violent incidents, so try to take care. You may have to work extremely hard and may have a lot of responsibilities that you cannot let go.
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.
It is easy for you to become distracted from your purpose by the multitude of interesting choices, possibilities, and options available to you. You need to develop single mindedness and focus. Until you direct your attention to some of the big questions, such as "What is my life's purpose?" "What is really important to me and essential to my happiness?", you are apt to dabble, to scatter your energies in many directions engaging in activities which are entertaining but which are ultimately not fruitful or nourishing.
Having an overall vision for your life and aligning your daily activities so that they support rather than detract from your larger purpose, is a significant step in your unfoldment.
The arena you are most likely to wrestle with these issues is in relationships that are more than superficial or casual - in particular where you and another have merged emotionally, legally, or financially. You will see these issues arise in close partnerships of any kind, especially when there is a mutual dependency on one another. Dealing with in-laws, inheritances, and legal matters involving joint custody, shared assets, and resources is also a part of this.
You have a strong desire to acquire a leading position in your community. Although you are very capable of assuming leadership, you also have a tendency to impose your will upon others. But in spite of that, you are likely to be successful.

Chapter 9: Originality and ImaginationAreas Where You Are Creative, Unique, Unstable, or Compulsive
You are an unconventional and innovative person, and you are seen as a rebel, reformer, or highly unusual in your manners, appearance, or attitudes. You enjoy being unpredictable, and you do not conform to the standards that other people have set. Above all, you are an individual, and you do what you please regardless of customs and norms. Your environment and life circumstances may change frequently and abruptly.
You have a sensitive physique and may have allergic responses and sensitivities to foods, medicines, or anything you take in from the environment. Emotional stress and confusion seem to affect you physically, even more quickly than they affect other people.
There was much that was hidden or secret in your childhood home, and you absorbed a sense of shame or a feeling that you need to hide and protect who you are from others. One of your parents had an especially intense bond to you and profoundly influenced you, perhaps dominated or controlled you in subtle ways. Unlocking the secrets of the past, and learning to be intimate and close to others without controlling or being controlled are issues for you.
You have an eye for beauty and tend to be attracted quickly to beautiful and pleasant people. You act spontaneously and prefer love contacts without any strings attached. Freedom is very important to you, and you are likely to have a number of casual relationships.
You tend to be restless and impatient and have a strong desire to bring your ideas to realization at all cost. At times you could experience sudden confusion about your direction in life and may question if you are on the right path.
You never seem to plan ahead and tend to take things as they come along. Taking a chance on your future, you may win sometimes and at other times end up disappointed, because your views are inclined to be based on idealism rather than realism.
Sticking obstinately to your work, you have the ability to work long and hard, but tend to work yourself to exhaustion. You also could have intense conflicts with others, resulting in frequent run-ins or possible violent fights.

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 25 year group of people who have strong feelings for home and country. You are a sentimental group, and feel deeply attached to your family and your country. You cling to the familiar, are distrustful and fearful of different cultures, and consequently a great deal of racial and ethnic prejudice is common among your age group.
Your need for closeness and togetherness runs very deep and causes you to bond closely to family members and old friends, and also makes you prone to be involved in mass movements and group activities because they feed your largely subconscious need for acceptance and support by others. Unfortunately, your age group is easily carried away by a group frenzy and many of you often lack the integrity or courage to think and act in an independent and rational way.
Your generation is very emotional and tenderhearted. Many of your group sacrificed a great deal to help your children or other family members, while other generations are unwilling to give as much as you have. Your tender feelings and regard for the well-being of others can spur your age group to make contributions towards the feeding of the hungry, care for the neglected, and support for the needy, particularly children and mothers. You are a group of people with a strong heart and a helpful hand. Many of you have parents and/or children who are not nearly as supportive and helpful; many of your contributions are not completely appreciated or even go unnoticed.
The Ideals and Illusions of Your Age Group
You are part of a 14 year group of people who are conservative and moderate in spiritual aspirations. Your age group tends to avoid speculation on metaphysical matters, and interest in psychic phenomena is considered very strange and weird by your age group. There is also a strong sense of right and wrong, and religious practices tend to emphasize ethics and moral judgment. The conservative, straight-laced atmosphere generated by your age group is frustrating to more imaginative types, who consequently rebelled against it.
You were also born during a period that lasted approximately 5 years and is characterized by an unusually high degree of imagination, intuition, and sensitivity. You are part of a group of people who are very inspired. Your age group is rather zealous and enthusiastically rallies behind new visions and ideals for society. You succeed in bringing a breath of fresh air into the arts and religions, and you inspire new ideals and goals for nations as well. You are part of a creative group that can do much to inspire a fresh vision and renewed hope for others.
What is New and Different in Your Age Group
You are part of a 7 year group of people who are very progressive in business and practical matters, and implement scientific ideas in practical ways to make life more comfortable. Home appliances, for example, were improved and marketed by your age group to a much greater degree than was previously done.
Your age group is also rather sensual and romantic, and is uninhibited in expressing romantic feelings. Your age group rebelled against repressive attitudes towards sexuality, and promoted overt expression of sexuality in movies, music, etc.
