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 are a freedom-loving, strong-willed, and independent-minded individual, and you insist upon living your own life as you see fit, even if that means ignoring convention and tradition. In personal relationships you cannot be owned or possessed, and while you are willing to share yourself with another, you do not always adjust easily to the emotional give and take of a close relationship. Though intellectually open, you can be enormously stubborn, opinionated, and inflexible on a one-to-one level. You have strong convictions and feelings about fairness and equality, and you try to live by your ideals, but your ideals about how people SHOULD treat one another don't always take into account human weaknesses, differences, and needs. You probably dislike sentimentality and traditional gender roles and "games".
You are fair, intelligent, objective, rational and often let your head rule rather than your heart. You seem rather self-sufficient and detached emotionally because you are capable of putting aside your personal feelings and viewing things dispassionately. But once you make up your mind on an issue, you are difficult to sway and can be rather dogmatic.
You think in broad terms and are concerned with the world beyond your own personal sphere - your town, nation, or even planet. You are likely to become involved in community affairs, social organizations, and groups of all kinds, or to have a keen interest in such. You enjoy being part of a group endeavor and often find yourself organizing, managing, or supervising group activities.
Forward-looking and progressive, you harbor great hopes for the future. You stay current and up to date, and respond to contemporary cultural trends, both in terms of personal style and in terms of ideas. When young you were very influenced by your peers and by group pressures and by all the "latest crazes". You have an experimental mind and are attracted by the novel.
Your strong points include your concern for human welfare and social betterment, your sense of fairness and democratic spirit, and your vision. Your faults are your stubbornness and inflexibility, and a tendency to be very obtuse and insensitive when it comes to personal feelings and human needs.
Your life is apt to be blessed with more than your share of helpful friends, fortuitous connections, and doors opening to you at just the right time. Because you are usually willing to share and to give back to others in a generous way, you continue to generate successes in your life no matter how unfortunate prevailing circumstances are. Beware, however, of becoming an opportunist.
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.
Your vitality is very strong and you are likely to be a workaholic. If you are not careful, you may work so hard that you become exhausted, leaving yourself open to physical breakdown. You also have a strong drive to win and to dominate others.

Chapter 2: Mental Interests and Abilities
Clear, objective, and realistic, you are unimpressed by exaggerated claims or promises. You insist upon being shown facts to back up any statement you hear, and your natural skepticism often borders on cynicism. You approach problems clearly and rationally and maintain your poise and objectivity even in the midst of critical situations. Anyone seeking your advice is certain to get an unemotional and unbiased assessment of their situation, and you therefore make a good arbitrator or judge. You are thorough, conscientious, and disciplined in your thinking, and have an aptitude for business, organization, and administration. You are also a good strategist, and will plan and patiently follow a realistic course which will lead to your eventual success. Serious-minded and studious, you enjoy quiet time alone for thinking or reading.
You have talent for establishing rapport and communicating with people, great personnel skills, and you are adept at dealing with the public. You communicate concern, interest, and the ability to listen, which encourages people to open up and confide in you even if they do not know you well. You create closeness with others by talking to them (even gossiping will do), or by writing intimate, personal letters. Women feel you understand them.
Intellectually oriented, you comprehend things rapidly and are able to assess every situation just as quickly. At times you also can be impulsive and have a tendency to criticize others. You may enjoy riddles and the participation in quiz shows.
You have a strong need to mentally dominate others and always take the lead in your conversations with people. You are able to exert a powerful influence in your community and have far-reaching ideas to change the world for the better.

Chapter 3: Emotions: Moods, Feelings, Romance
Tenderhearted and sympathetic to an unusual degree, you have an understanding of other people's feelings and needs which borders on being telepathic. You are extremely compassionate and cannot bear to see any fellow creature - be it human or animal -suffer. Because of your kindness and nonjudgmental attitude, people in pain or confusion are drawn to you for help, which you readily give. Sometimes your softheartedness is taken advantage of.
You are a gentle, poetic soul and have a great love and affinity for music. Because many of your feelings are nebulous and vague and you cannot easily verbalize how you experience life, music seems a natural language for you. You are also tremendously romantic and are often "in love with love".
You are a dreamer, attracted to the inner, mystical side of life, and may have trouble distinguishing the real from the imagined or illusory. You do not enjoy confrontation and become very evasive when problems in your personal life arise, escaping into your imagination in order to avoid dealing with them directly. You are also rather gullible and naive about people, especially if your sympathy has been aroused. You are very sensitive to music and can use it to bring yourself into emotional balance and harmony.
Tremendously softhearted and sympathetic, you give very selflessly and devotedly to those you love and often allow others to become overly dependent upon you. More compassionate than passionate, you may become romantically involved with someone because they need love and you want to help them, rather than out of mutual pleasure or attraction.
You are drawn to sensitive, imaginative, gentle souls -poets, musicians, dreamers - or to someone you feel you can have a deep spiritual relationship with. You idealize love and have a very beautiful, romantic vision of what love can be.
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.
There can be a lack of harmony or satisfaction in your romantic relationships -- not necessarily a great deal of open conflict, but simply an underlying tension or discontent. This is because the people you find likeable, lovable, and agreeable to you may not be at all attuned to your sexual tastes and needs. Another, more direct way of saying this is, the people you love and the people you want to make love with are very different from one another. You may be confused about what you really need and want in personal relationships. You need to acknowledge that you have some conflicting desires (such as a partner who is very gentle and sensitive but also a powerful, dominant personality, or security and commitment in love but also a lot of freedom and excitement, etc.) Trying to satisfy both sides of the equation can be a tricky challenge.
You have a very romantic, idealistic vision of love and may be disillusioned to discover that no real, flesh and blood human being ever quite lives up to your dream image of the Perfect Love. Though you frequently fantasize about love and romance, you may avoid becoming intimately involved with anyone or making definite commitments. You can be evasive and dishonest with yourself and others, when it comes to love. Some of your love yearnings may be expressed through art, music, or an involvement with mysticism.
You display a great degree of sensitivity in living with others, but are inclined to avoid responsibility. You also tend to hold back your opinions or points of view and may become involved in associations that are not fulfilling.

Chapter 4: Drive and Ambition: How You Achieve Your Goals
You seesaw between being too pushy, confrontational, and insistent on doing things your way, and being too eager to please, without a clear, definite goal of your own. You strive for a balance between acting independently and assertively - and working cooperatively and interdependently with others. You may feel frustrated at times that you cannot simply do what YOU want to, that you must always accommodate the needs and desires of others. Or you may feel hesitant to act in a positive, assertive manner if you do not have the support and approval of other people. Either way, you are not a loner. You achieve your goals by collaborating and joining forces with others, by being a team player. You are very concerned with the concept of fairness and become quite indignant and vocal if you sense someone is being taken advantage of. You avoid extremism and favor a balanced, moderate approach to living. You are unlikely to push yourself too hard or to become fanatically driven to reach your goals.
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.
Your competitive drive and big ambitions (commented upon earlier) are fueled upon by either strong spiritual idealism, or a rather inflated, grandiose idea of what you can actually accomplish. Your energy level is apt to fluctuate from being very strong, as noted earlier, to rather low, as mentioned in the following paragraphs.
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 have a talent and ability for putting fresh ideas and inspiration into practice. You are ready and willing to utilize new ideas and methods, and you have a knack for gaining acceptance for a new idea and practically implementing it.
You dedicate yourself wholeheartedly to a cause, sacrifice much, and eliminate all superfluous activities and interests. Others find your approach too severe and are unwilling to go along with you in the difficult circumstances that you are willing to tolerate. Your determination and capacity for self-denial often help you get through the rough spots to the goal you are striving for.

Chapter 5: Growth and Expansion: Areas That You Enjoy
Your strength lies in your ability to see the whole, rather than only the parts which compose it. You have a deep need to explore the world and to develop your own philosophy of life and sense of personal meaning. You vacillate between being open-minded and tolerant of differing views, and being dogmatic or overly zealous about your own viewpoint.
Optimistic and enthusiastic, you have a positive outlook on life. You are convincing and appear like someone who is used to getting the desired results. This, combined with your competitive and enterprising nature, makes you a good leader or manager.
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 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.
You tend to have inner conflicts between your responsibilities and what you would like to do. You may weigh your duties against your desires and may find that you are wanting, making it very difficult for you to be truly happy.
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 natural instinct, especially when under stress, is to passively flow along with whatever is easiest, not clearly analyzing or assessing your situation and perhaps even trying to escape seeing your situation clearly by indulging in fantasies, intoxicants, and the like. Dreaminess and impracticality, being unfocused and undefined (at least in certain areas) are ways you cope with stress. You also have trouble setting boundaries and saying no.
Your path of development lies in cultivating discrimination and clarity, becoming more precise, developing technical and practical skills that will enable you to function more efficiently in the world. Finding a way to be of practical service is also important.
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 30 year group of people who are highly motivated by practical concerns. There is a very strong psychological need to feel that there is a firm foundation and a solid basis for one's life. There is an irresistible urge to make sure that the basics are taken care of and everything is built on a solid foundation. Consequently, your generation works hard to improve the economy, ensure adequate food supplies, maintain and build roads and buildings, increase productivity, and develop other facilities that are essential foundations for a healthy, thriving economy.
There is a strong tendency to measure the value of something by its utilitarian value. For example, in education and research the emphasis is on ideas of practical value and there is little support for more purely theoretical research.
Your generation is pragmatic and productive, and is driven by a need to build and DO things. This concern with practical affairs often becomes unbalanced, and a rampant materialism with little regard for humanitarian, ethical, and spiritual values often develops in your age group.
There is also a strong sensual craving in your age group, and a great deal of emphasis is placed on physically comfortable surroundings and good food. Romance is particularly important to your age group, and a great emphasis is also placed on the physical attractiveness of the opposite sex.
A small minority of members of your age group are likely to be uncomfortable with the practical and materialistic atmosphere of the times, and consequently become alienated and antagonistic towards the social norm.
You were also born during a period that lasted approximately 5 years and is characterized by extreme restlessness and an impatient, dynamic attitude towards life. You are part of a group of people who can be explosive and even violent in their reactions to situations. You do not tolerate being restricted, and your age group rebels with force and anger against oppressive situations.
The Ideals and Illusions of Your Age Group
You are part of a 14 year group of people that have a very active imagination. Your age group has a great interest in poetry and fiction, and some of the world's most creative and imaginative poets and writers are members of your generation. Your age group has a great curiosity about psychic phenomena, astrology, and other metaphysical sciences. Your generation also takes a rather intellectual, nonemotional attitude towards religion, and is quick to see logical flaws in religious doctrines.
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.
