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: The Inner You: Your Real Motivation
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 have big aspirations but do not struggle or labor to achieve them. Your self-confidence and inner harmony attract success and benefits to you in an almost magical way. Your optimism and cheerful generosity also win you many allies and successes in life.
Impulsive, restless, and spontaneous, your life is apt to be somewhat unstable and full of sudden changes. You are extremely independent and crave excitement, adventure, freedom, and discovery. You have a rebellious streak and often feel you are unusual and different from the mainstream of society. The unorthodox and novel appeal to you.
Both sensitive and sensuous, you blend charm and energy. You have a healthy sexuality and a good balance between activity and passivity. You may be fond of singing, dancing, music and drama. Romance comes easily to you, and your romantic relationships are passionate.

Chapter 2: 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 are not interested in subjects that are wholly abstract or technical. There must be a personal, human element to evoke your interest. Your interest is people and their inner motivations, feelings, personal lives, and experiences. You are a natural listener with a talent for getting others to talk about their lives, dreams, desires - the things that are personally meaningful to them. You could also be an excellent writer, reporter, or biographer.
You have a particular interest in the past. You are concerned either with personal history (childhood and early family experiences, genealogy, etc.) or with the roots and origins of societies (archeology, mythology, history, etc.).
You are nostalgic and love to hear others' life stories and to discuss your own experiences and feelings. You like to read biographies and memoirs, and probably keep a diary or journal yourself. You also have the ability to be a successful public speaker.
Although you are perceptive and attuned to the personal, human side of any issue (as described above), you are also capable of considerable intellectual detachment and objectivity. You combine the qualities of being subjective and intuitive with a rational, analytical approach. You have an introverted frame of mind and you tend to dissect or deeply analyze your own and other people's inner lives and experiences.
Your mind is serious and deep, and you will rarely offer an opinion on any matter until you have thoroughly considered and studied it. You have excellent powers of concentration and enjoy studying or thinking deeply in solitude. You have an aptitude for research or doing mental work which requires precise, organized thinking, attention to detail, and a methodical approach. You are conservative and something of a skeptic, and may be narrow-minded and closed to new ideas, especially if there is no concrete proof or scientific verification of them. Socially, you are rather reserved, uncommunicative, and uncomfortable with light, frivolous conversation.
Although your thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times you can be quite the opposite. Periods of absentmindedness, building castles in the air, or ruminating over mystical, abstract, or imponderable subjects are also likely, as discussed below.
Vague, confused thinking which can lead to miscommunication and misunderstandings can be a problem for you, and you have to work at being as clear, honest and unambiguous in your dealings with others as you possibly can. You tend, also, to "go off the deep end" regarding spiritual philosophies, imaginative ideas, or theoretical speculation which may or may not have any real relevance or validity. Try to critically test out your ideas, or seek out a person whose judgment and character you respect, to use as a sounding board.
Never satisfied with the face value of anything, you are always probing beneath the surface for deeper reasons and hidden motives - though you rarely reveal your own. You have a very suspicious, even paranoid, side. You mind is penetrating and deep and you have an aptitude for research, investigative reporting, or private investigation. You are keenly interested in the deeper aspects of the human psyche, with a sort of "x-ray vision" regarding the inner motivations and intentions of others. You are drawn to anything secret, hidden, or mysterious, and may pursue esoteric or occult studies. You are also a forceful and convincing speaker or writer, with the ability to influence people's thinking by the sheer power of your conviction.
You have a charming disposition and love to socialize and meet new people. You also like to be surrounded by beautiful things and like to talk to others about your views on love problems as well as your views on beauty, fashion and art in general.
You have an abundance of thoughts and many ideas to expand your horizon. Always receptive to new ideas, you tend to acquire considerable knowledge. New vistas of understanding may appeal to you, and you may get involved in groups that teach these ideas.

Chapter 3: Emotions: Moods, Feelings, Romance
Emotional outbursts are frequent with you due to your fiery temper and emotional impulsiveness. You express yourself very directly and honestly and no one has to guess what your true feelings are. However, you dislike showing any personal weaknesses or needs for support, comfort, and nurturing. You are often impatient with yourself and with others. You abhor emotional dependency and dislike "complainers".
You inspire others to take positive action in their lives by your own enthusiasm and eagerness to meet life's challenges, and are attracted to people who are adventurous, courageous, and independent. You are rather bossy, but you do not like to be with people that you can boss around too much. You enjoy a good fight sometimes. Relationships built upon mutual respect and a good deal of emotional freedom are ideal for you.
You become very cross if you do not have enough vigorous physical activity. You will feel your best if you "do battle" on the tennis or racquetball court (or engage in some other competitive sport) frequently.
You often feel that you must do something or be something other than what you are in order to receive approval and acceptance from others. You are very sensitive to criticism and easily feel left out or neglected, and though you may appear cool or distant, you actually care very much about being included. Because you are so sensitive, it may seem easier for you to withdraw into a shell rather than risk the emotional bumps and bruises that can occur when you let others really know you in an intimate, personal way. Your reserve and caution make establishing a close emotional rapport with others difficult for you, and you become very attached to the few people you consider "real friends". You can gain inner security and strength through periods of solitude if you view them as times to nourish yourself and develop your own interests, rather than as times of loneliness.
The beauty and harmony of your surroundings has a very powerful effect on your emotions. You are very sensitive and cannot stand to be in an atmosphere where there is discord or dissonance. Gentle, kindhearted, and peace-loving, you will give or sacrifice much in order to avoid a fight and to "make everyone happy".
Your intimate relationships and close personal relationships are often intense, highly-charged, and difficult, as they trigger deep emotional responses in you that have more to do with unsatisfied hungers and unmet childhood needs than with the present situation. You may feel like a voracious, bottomless pit when it comes to nurturing and emotional reassurance, and your neediness often drives others away. When you do let yourself feel close to another human being, painful long-buried feelings bubble to the surface as well perhaps grief at the losses you suffered, or anger at the neglect or hurt you endured. You may also reenact these situations in your present day relationships, in an unconscious effort to resolve and heal those old issues. You will do a lot of clearing and cleansing, if you can listen to what your feelings are telling you. If not, you will simply have a tumultuous, passionate, and stormy emotional life.
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.
You share freely whatever you have, and your friends know they can always count on your generosity and support, both emotional and material. Your good-hearted acceptance and tolerance of others' foibles goes a long way in maintaining harmony in your relationships. You also have a lazy streak and sometimes avoid confronting difficult issues in relationships simply because it seems like too much trouble and too petty. You like to socialize and will use any excuse to celebrate with friends. You cannot tolerate too much restriction by your love partner, and encourage your partner's freedom as well.
You have a great rapport with the opposite sex, and love, romance, and passion are absolutely vital to your well-being. It is rare for you to go very long without an intimate companion. The physical component of a relationship is very important to you. Artistic creations and projects are another way for you to channel your passion.

Chapter 4: Drive and Ambition: How You Achieve Your Goals
You are proud and ambitious, and you strive to excel, to stand out and be recognized for who and what you are. You have a very strong ego drive and like to be Number One. You find it difficult to take orders from others or to stay in the background, and you hate being wrong; you always insist that you are right!
You are forceful, strong, energetic, determined, and highly competitive. You play hard, you play to win, and you do not give up easily. In fact, you see life as a competitive sport or performance. You love admiration and applause, and you have a strong sense of personal honor and integrity. You tend to be very self-confident, even arrogant. Because of your belief in yourself, you are able to accomplish much, but if your confidence is ever undermined, you become self-conscious, defensive, and rather belligerent.
While you enjoy challenging yourself to extend your abilities or try new activities, you are apt to bite off more than you can chew. Failures or accidents due to overestimating your prowess or capacities and being overly eager and poorly prepared, may result. Fortunately these disappointments or blunders do not dampen your spirits or your ambitions permanently; you have a lot of resilience and optimism. Most likely you'll need to develop your physical coordination and sense of timing in order to do some of the activities you dream of doing.
You enjoy risky, exciting activities and cannot tolerate too much routine, tedium, or inactivity. Unless other factors in your chart suggest staying power and the ability to follow through, you may be the person who initiates a new venture but who cannot happily participate in the ongoing, sustained effort it requires. "Independent" is your middle name! You need to be a totally free agent, to run your own show. You like to introduce new concepts to people, and then move on.
You seem to be driven to succeed and work indefatigably toward the realization of your goals. You have the ability and strength to master the greatest tasks, but tend to over-tax your nerves and physical strength to the point of a break down.
You have a strong tendency to flirt and seek excitement and stimulation through your love relationships. You have the ability to make yourself interesting to people you meet and some of your contacts may have an unusual quality or may begin under unusual conditions.
You are inclined to dominate people and to use or manipulate others for your own ends. You have a strong need to be in control and to exercise influence over others. You also have a desire to achieve record performances in groups you may be involved with.

Chapter 5: Growth and Expansion: Areas That You Enjoy
Your ability to empathize and identify with others makes you unwilling to take advantage of or hurt anyone. You care about the underdog. You may also be unusually impressionable or have highly developed psychic sensitivity.
You enjoy being around other people and are always happy to meet someone. Self-confident and at ease with others, you are a much sought companion. You have a sense of community and the ability to capture the spirit of groups or organizations.

Chapter 6: Areas That Challenge You Or Are Difficult For You
You fear becoming emotionally dependent upon others, and may distance yourself or deny your needs for closeness and intimacy so that you won't be vulnerable to rejection or abandonment. On the other hand, you may cling excessively or need constant reassurance from loved ones and family. Developing a deep, inner sense of security, as well as the ability to give and receive nurturing are important tasks for you.
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.
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 specific habits which are likely to hold you back, or which you are prone to overdo, especially during stressful periods, include:
Being self-indulgent, relying on the generosity or affection of others too much, laziness, making personal love relationships and social life more important than anything else in your life, pursuing superficial pleasures.

Chapter 7: 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 12 year group of people who are deeply interested in personal relationships. Your age group has a deeply-rooted yearning to see people relating and communicating with each other effectively and harmoniously. There is little egotism and a willingness to hear the other person's side of the story and a readiness to compromise and arbitrate different points of view. In fact, the need for harmonious, peaceful relationships is so strong that there is a tendency to overlook real differences and to focus only on the similarities in an attempt to bring different parties into harmony with each other.
Interest in psychology and sociology is high in your age group. There is a tremendous heightening of awareness of social skills. Your age group will experiment with different marriage styles, family relationships, and even business relationships in an attempt to bring fair treatment and effective communication between people. Interest and appreciation for other cultures is also strong, and your age group will work hard to preserve and support the cultural heritage of all ethnic groups.
Your strong yearning for equitable and harmonious relationships is also reflected in major advancements in trade agreements, arms control, and international cooperation that are designed and implemented by your generation. These agreements and policies foster a much safer and more cooperative environment for all, although there is also a tendency for greedy individuals to take advantage of the conciliatory atmosphere and twist situations to their own ends.
In short, you are part of a generation of individuals who are deeply interested in other people; you are a humanistic and humanitarian group. You will struggle and experiment with personal relationships, and forge new models for how people can relate as friends, family members, and members of nations as well.
The Ideals and Illusions of Your Age Group
You are part of a 14 year group of people that are extremely idealistic and farsighted in their dreams. Your age group is very liberal and expansive in outlook, and consequently churches become much more flexible and more eclectic in their approach during your life time. Religions that do not adapt to the broad-minded attitude of your age group simply are unable to attract very much interest and involvement from you.
A great deal of metaphysical musing and speculation is evident in your age group, and there is a very strong interest in all manner of psychic phenomena, UFO's, prophecy, etc. This interest will open many new doors and insights, but will also often lead to a great deal of fantasizing and speculation that is taken more seriously than it should be.
The entire generation to which you belong has tremendous opportunities for spiritual rebirth and awakening. This will not be forced upon you or precipitated by unavoidable events, rather it comes from an inner yearning and a natural propensity to seek the depths.
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.
