    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.

    You prize personal independence and autonomy so much that you're apt to downplay your needs for closeness and caring. While you express indignation, anger, excitement, or enthusiasm rather freely, you hide your feelings of sadness or inadequacy. You may dismiss your own and others' feelings as insignificant and unimportant. Letting others know when you are hurting and need their support and help is hard for you because you feel that they will not respect you if you display this sort of vulnerability.

    Striving to be (and often believing yourself to be) emotionally self-sufficient limits your ability to be truly intimate with others and to get the nurturing you need. You are also often rather insensitive to how your behavior affects other people.

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.

    Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, you like to be impressive and to be seen as Somebody Special. You are not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and are rarely content being in the background or in the subordinate position. You are a natural leader, and do not take orders from others very well. You must have something of your own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that you can develop and manage according to your own will and vision. Whatever you do, you do it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. You like to put your own personal stamp on it.

    You also have a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and are deeply offended if someone treats you in a humiliating or dishonorable way. You will rarely confront the offender - you are too proud to do so - but you will lose your affection and respect for them. You dislike pettiness and hate to be snubbed or ignored.

    You admire others who are strong individuals like yourself. When you befriend someone, you are tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. You are very giving and generous, but your gifts are never anonymous - you expect recognition and appreciation for them. You also expect the intense loyalty that you offer to your dear ones to be reciprocated. However, you often have trouble working with people who are as strong as yourself, for you do not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If you are not in the leading role, you aspire to be and will compete with the person who is.

    You have great heart and courage, and people often look to you for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. You always have your best face forward and rarely allow others to see you hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. You also have a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although you don't like others to realize just how important it is to you.

    Your outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. Your own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interests you more than anything else. You feel that if you do your best where you are, the rest of the world will take care of itself.

     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 an appealing physical appearance and this, along with your winning ways, is apt to make you a favorite in your immediate environment. You're the "easy" one, and you know how to please others. Don't take your personal charm for granted, however, because you may also seem vain or too needy for approval.

    You believe in good fellowship or comradeship and cultivate an active social life. Your meetings with others tend to be very harmonious and your participation in group efforts is carried out with vigorous and energetic cooperation.

Chapter 3: The Inner You: Your Real Motivation

    Behind your proud and magnanimous demeanor (as described in the previous chapter), there is a real go-getter. Others feel that you are rather narcissistic. Strive to always be aware of others' needs and concerns so that this criticism is not true!

    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.

     World travel, foreign cultures, and studies which expand your intellectual horizons and broaden your understanding of the world are very attractive to you.

     You have a philosophical turn of mind and are concerned with seeking answers to the big questions of life or getting the overview of any situation. Abstract concepts and/or plans for the future occupy your mind much of the time.

     You occasionally gamble, splurge, or overextend yourself in ways that may be quite at odds with your usual way of doing things. Exaggerating your accomplishments or spending too much in order to impress others and build up your own self-esteem can be a problem. However, you also have faith and an optimistic side, which enable you to recover from the negative consequences of your excesses, and to learn from them.

    However you also have a heavier side which keeps your optimism from becoming ungrounded or overblown. You tend to seesaw between your faith, vision and high aspirations, and your caution and realism (or fear!). You cannot and do not rely on good luck or grace alone, and you accept the need for hard work. Your doubting or "heavy" side is described below.

    You have a mature and often somber demeanor. You are serious, reserved, self-disciplined, highly responsible and conscientious. You advance in life rather slowly, through your own efforts and persistence. You are also rather stern and judgmental, especially with yourself. Cautious and careful, it is difficult for you to really let go, to be spontaneous and playful. You like to be in control of yourself.

    Although you take yourself and your responsibilities seriously, there is also a part of you that rebels against rules and restrictions and answering to outside authority. You can feel torn between conforming or fulfilling your obligations, and breaking free of them. Your wilder side will now be described.

     At times you may feel an uncontrollable urge to radically alter your direction in life, or to act in ways that seem eccentric or at least highly uncharacteristic of you. When your life is becoming too predictable, you may do something to upset the status quo, sometimes without realizing why or how you are doing this. These impulses may seem at odds with your conscious intent and desires for yourself, and can be unsettling. However, there is a streak of unconventionality and creative genius in you which needs to be expressed now and then.

    While you are realistic and conscientious (or overly conscientious), as described above, you also have an otherworldly, dreamy, or mystically-inclined side, as described below.

     You tend to be very impressionable and psychically open, and as a youngster, you could have been dominated by more forceful personalities. Afraid of confrontation, you may have become passive, identified yourself as a helpless victim, or tried to gain your desires in underhanded ways.

     Your hypersensitivity to your environment is apt to be a challenge for you in other ways as well. Pollutants, ugliness, or dissonance in any form is apt to affect you more than most people.

    Your courage to face life seems to be a bit on the low side and you are prone to worry a lot. Fear of your own inadequacies could distort your perspective and deplete your strength to go on in the direction you have chosen.

    Your physique tends to be sensitive and your vitality may be a bit low. You are very impressionable and somewhat unrealistic. Sometimes your idealism could be confused or impractical, and you can be rebellious or else apathetic.

Chapter 4: Mental Interests and Abilities

    Your mind operates in a very deliberate and methodical manner and you dislike being rushed or forced to give an opinion before you have thoroughly ruminated and digested an idea. You are also difficult to influence once your mind is made up.

    Though slower to grasp new concepts or learn new skills, you are patient and persevering and, in fact, often become quite adept at whatever you put your mind and hand to, for you are willing to devote much time and attention to it. You succeed not so much because of your mental brilliance, but because you have the ability to concentrate and follow a project through to its completion. You have an aptitude for singing or drawing.

     You think a great deal about your career, your reputation and public image, and the way you make a contribution or impact on the world at large. Public speaking or communications of some other kind is likely to be an important aspect of the work you do.

Chapter 5: Emotions: Moods, Feelings, Romance

    You do not appear to be an intensely emotional or sentimental person, and you are often unaware of your own or other people's deeper feelings and emotional needs. Tears and tantrums bewilder you and make you very uncomfortable. You would rather settle differences by talking things out reasonably and rationally, but you tend to ignore or poke fun at any attempt to probe your own or others' inner depths.

    You avoid heavy, demanding emotional involvement and are wary of making personal commitments.

    You need plenty of mental stimulation and you feel close to people with whom you can share thoughts and mental interests. Conversation is very important to you. The strong, silent type of partner is not for you.

     You work well with the public and have an instinct for what the public wants and will respond to. Having a "nest" is not especially important to you, and you may invest more of your emotional energy into your career or public life than in your private life. Providing for and caring for others in a professional capacity is very likely.

    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 have an instinctive understanding of other people and are very sympathetic toward them. Relationships are very important to you, and you are likely to feel a strong inner bond with many of your friends.

    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.

     You are attracted to foreigners, exotic places, traveling, and to people who can expand your horizons, teach you something, or show you places and worlds you have never experienced before. Sharing a philosophy or ideal with your love partner is important to you.

     Also, you feel a love and kinship for people everywhere, not only with your own family, nationality, or group. Finding similarities and making links between people from differing backgrounds or with different perspectives is a gift of yours.

    You are warmly romantic and openly express your appreciation and love of the opposite sex, though rarely in a crude or insensitive manner. You enjoy playing matchmaker and bringing people together romantically. Fulfillment and harmony in love is likely for you because you know what you want and need in a romantic sense and express those desires honestly.

    You have a need for calm and peaceful surrounding, but your somewhat passionate nature could bring on arguments and fights about love matters. You love your work and may connect your profession with a hobby in some way.

Chapter 6: Drive and Ambition: How You Achieve Your Goals

    You are aspiring, enterprising, and forever following some bright and distant star, planning some new venture or investigating new potentials. You are definitely "upwardly mobile" in either a material or spiritual sense (or both). You aim high and are not content simply with a quiet, secure existence. You like to stretch your limits, to see how far you can go, and to take risks. You are a positive thinker, expect success for yourself, and are philosophical about failures. You are flexible and bounce back from disappointment rather quickly, usually with another hopeful new idea you want to try. Your enthusiasm and confidence are contagious and enable you to enlist the aid and support you need for your projects. However, you sometimes promise more than you can actually achieve, because you are overly optimistic or pay insufficient attention to the practicalities involved.

    You also tend to get distracted and to have too many things going at once. Although it is very difficult for you, there are times when you simply must develop commitment, perseverance, and persistence in order to make your dreams and goals a concrete reality. Too often you fall short of what you could attain because you are unwilling to persist through the difficult or less exciting times.

    You also enjoy competition and usually do not take it too seriously. Sports and entrepreneurial endeavors are good ways to channel your energy.

     You play vigorously and enjoy competitive games and physical rough-and-tumble activities. Athletics and/or physical activities have great appeal for you. You take the initiative in sports and also in romance: you are ardent in pursuing ANYTHING you desire.

     Positions of honor, affluence, influence, and stature in your community can be yours. You feel you have a destiny which involves leadership or distinguishing yourself in some line of endeavor. You possess an innate sense of greatness or importance, and a strong drive to achieve recognition for your talent. Avoid excessive egotism and arrogant pride, for these could limit your opportunities.

     Your role in life is apt to be one of great responsibility and you take your tasks very seriously. A certain heaviness weighs on you because of this. You may have been unusually ambitious or mature at a tender age. You advance and attain your aspirations through dedication and perseverance, rather than fortune.

     Your profession may be unusual, very innovative and progressive, or outside the "mainstream", providing alternative services or products. A certain uneven, erratic quality characterizes your career and rise in the professional arena. Sudden changes of fortune, unexpected upsets, and twists of fate are likely.

    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.

Chapter 7: Growth and Expansion: Areas That You Enjoy

     Your ability to think things through clearly, and to analyze and understand the smallest details of any plan, is highly developed. You have a modest nature and are more concerned with the success of your project or work than with personal aggrandizement. You enjoy working and are happiest when you are being productive and using your time efficiently.

     Wealth, material well-being, and prosperity are very important to you, and you would never choose a profession that didn't offer you great promise and opportunity for growth (financial and otherwise).

     You are very generous and sometimes careless with money; you don't want to hold on to it, you want to enjoy it and use it to enrich your life. Whatever you do with your money, you do in a big way - making it, spending it, or blowing it! You may accumulate elegant, high quality things (art, jewelry, etc).

    You are very enthusiastic and high-spirited. You inject a positive, optimistic note into any endeavor, and others enjoy your fun-loving and enterprising attitude.

    You aim high and strive to position yourself in a manner that will ensure success. You are not above joining organizations or rubbing elbows with others primarily for the opportunities and social status that they confer on you. You abhor pettiness and your broad perspective and vision incline you to an influential and successful position in life.

     You have a great, wide-open sense of possibilities which allows extraordinary, even miraculous events to come into your life. A sense of divine grace, of being part of the flow of the universe, of communing with celestial realms or Beings, are all very natural to you. At the same time, you're not apt to go to extremes or lose your sense of perspective. You are also quite altruistic and giving, and ready to aid less fortunate people. A sense of gratitude and spiritual wealth is one of your finest attributes.

    You are likely to become involved with social improvements and may be attracted to religious and philosophical concerns or more unusual kinds of activity. Most likely you will be able to obtain immense successes.

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.

     Your attitude toward religion, philosophy, and politics is very conservative and possibly narrow or rigid. On the one hand, you may believe in nothing that is speculative or intangible, requiring proof for any idea presented to you. Each idea is thoroughly and systematically examined. On the other hand, you may tenaciously cling to your grand philosophical or metaphysical beliefs and opinions, refusing to modify them or to be open and receptive to others' insights and perspectives.

     Your overall outlook on life is serious, and you may feel that life or God will punish you if you do not watch your step!

     Your faith, optimism, and sense of possibilities are tempered by much caution, and often doubt or skepticism as well. Whatever hopes or visions you have for your life are firmly held in check by your sense of reality. At times you may wish for more freedom, but you also fear it and hang back. You may blame practical limitations or some external condition or the prevailing Authority for your own inhibitions.

     The side of you that wants and needs structure, order, stability, and a disciplined way of life is at odds with your urges for unfettered freedom, change, excitement, and discovery. There is apt to be much discontent, inner stress, and tension due to this, and at times you find it hard to relax. You may act out in a rebellious way now and then, or clamp down hard on yourself, in an attempt to strictly control your "wild" impulses. Your task is to try to find a reasonable balance between order and creative chaos in your life.

     At times you struggle with nebulous worries and insecurities, fears which may be difficult to name. Mostly, you may be afraid of getting acquainted with the inner workings of your mind and soul, feeling uneasy with anything irrational or intangible. You have to work hard to overcome being overly serious regarding the spiritual side of life, especially if your religious upbringing emphasized guilt and retribution. Reorienting yourself in the direction of spiritual optimism will do much to lift the cloud of worry that settles over you occasionally.

    Lacking confidence in yourself, you have the feeling that your luck has abandoned you. You are inclined to sit and wait for the right opportunities to come along, placing too much emphasis on wishful thinking and are disappointed when nothing happens.

    You are somewhat pessimistic and prone to states of depression. You may feel like withdrawing from everything and that you are not adequately equipped to handle your life. You may need someone else's point of view to balance your overly pessimistic outlook.



    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.

    Cultivating the qualities of empathy, gentleness, and compassion will help counterbalance your deeply ingrained perfectionism and critical nature. When under stress, you are apt to try to rigorously analyze and to focus on what needs to be corrected or improved, and you can easily become problem-oriented, losing sight of the big picture and of what is working.

    Learn to relax and surrender to the flow of events without having to figure everything out all the time. Let your feelings and intuitions flow more freely, be more flexible and fluid, use your imagination and let your dreams emerge!

    The arena you are most likely to wrestle with these issues is in developing a personal vision or philosophy of life, whether this be through religious or philosophical studies, a broadening education, or visiting and drawing upon the wisdom in distant lands or cultures. Cultivate the qualities described above in this endeavor. Long distance communication and involvement with foreigners is likely to be significant to you.

    The specific habits which are likely to hold you back, or which you are prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:

An overreliance on luck or grace, living for tomorrow, gambling, overconfidence, overextending yourself and taking on more than is humanly possible, and/or being dogmatic about your philosophy of life or religious beliefs.

Going to extremes, willful rebelliousness and an instinctive antiauthoritarian attitude, seeking constant (and often purposeless) movement or change, involvement with unreliable people, and seeking individual freedom at any cost.

    You are gay and cheerful in the company of others and happy to be with them. You are fond of telling jokes and are likely to entertain everyone. Your meetings with others are inclined to be for a common purpose.

Chapter 9: Originality and Imagination
Areas 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 childhood and early home life were colored by a great deal of confusion or by people with unusually active imaginations, aspirations, or fantasies. It is difficult for you to see your childhood and your relationship with your parents in a clear, realistic light. You may search for the ideal, loving home you wish you had, or believe you had, when you were a child. Finding inner peace and a sense of emotional security within yourself is important to you.

     You are likely to have a fixation on money, wealth, and material resources. You may totally renounce material desires and ownership, or become obsessed with having, owning, and accumulating. Your attitudes towards owning, keeping, and sharing will undergo major changes in your lifetime, and your fortunes are likely to run very hot or very cold.

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.

     You are quite open to psychic experiences and altered states of consciousness, and do not have to work very hard to achieve them. You belong to an idealistic, free-thinking group of people who will advance the spiritual progress of humankind as a whole.

What is New and Different in Your Age Group

    You are part of a 7 year group of people who strive for greater equality in relationships. You treat parents, children, and spouses much more like friends and equals than other generations do, and many of you will experiment with alternative marriage styles that allow for greater freedom and equality in relationships.
