Just for Women - Introduction
An Astrological Portrait for Pamela Fottrell
Your astrological chart provides an amazing guidepost to the most important aspect of your life: an understanding of yourself. As a woman today, you face the challenge of discovering yourself within the context of many life experiences. You wear a variety of faces and play many roles, experiences which can both enhance and complicate your feeling of satisfaction with yourself and your life. Your astrological chart provides indicators which help to define who you are, strengthening an understanding of your needs on every level. Each chart is different in its make-up, and the myriad combinations of influences help to underscore the importance of each person as an individual. One thing you must remember when working with astrology: it is through your free will that you make choices. Your "chart" does not make you do anything!
We are finally acknowledging and realizing within today's world, that men and women experience life differently. The workings of your psyche, symbolized by your astrological chart, are likely to be experienced quite differently through your filter as a woman than they would be if you were born male. This report is designed for you, a woman in a world of change, a woman seeking to become whole.
Your natal, or birth, chart is made up of several factors. Drawn upon a circular wheel, your natal chart shows the positions of the planets relative to your place, date and time of birth. Everything is indicated symbolically, with each symbol having specific meanings. The planets, Sun and Moon are placed around the circle, and each is placed within a particular degree of a sign of the zodiac. The planets, Sun and Moon are energy bodies, and the astrological signs indicate how these energies work. Just as you are a complex of feelings, needs, drives and desires - your natal chart maps these qualities. You will also notice that the planetary symbols fall within particular segments of the circle. These segments, called "Houses", indicate the specific environments and relationships which are part of your life. You may find, upon reading your report, that there are a few contradictions. For example, one factor may indicate independence, while another shows strong dependency. It is not unusual to experience contradictions within yourself, and that is just what your chart illustrates about you! But when you reflect upon these qualities within the context in which they are explained, you may discover some self-illuminating facts about yourself. Self-understanding has a marvelous way of emphasizing your personal power!
An Overall Glimpse at Your Astrological Chart
The astrological signs are defined by one of four elements: fire, earth, air or water. The fire and air elements have a yang (masculine polarity) quality, and tend to be more outgoing and assertive in their nature, whereas the earth and water elements have a yin (feminine polarity) quality, and are more receptive by nature. The elemental balance in your chart is determined by the amount of energy within each elemental sign. The factors added together to find this balance of energy include the Sun, Moon, planets and the angles of the Ascendant and Midheaven.
Your chart shows a strong predominance of fiery energy, adding a special intensity to your personality and a strong level of vitality. You may be more action oriented than some of your friends, and your adventurous enthusiasm may make you the topic of conversation among your friends. Your intuition and instincts are effective allies. Watch a tendency to push yourself too hard, since it's easy to burnout once you've gone beyond your limits. In relationships with others, you prefer to be around those who love the adventure of life and who appreciate your active inspirational nature. The elemental balance in your astrological chart indicates that earth is a weak factor, signifying that you may sometimes feel a need for greater stability. Practical matters may not always be a primary consideration when making major decisions. The problem with little earth is usually related to not being in touch with the physical plane, which can cause you to lose your focus or to ignore physical reality. During the times in your life when you feel out of touch or uncertain, get back to nature. Take a walk in the park or woods, garden, hug a tree, work with clay, or get a massage to remind yourself that you are part physical, too!
Another aspect of your basic nature is determined by the balance of the modes in your chart. The modes are also defined by sign, which are grouped together as either cardinal, fixed or mutable. Your strongest mode is Cardinal, indicating that your basic approach to life is one of getting things started. You're an initiator, and are happiest when you're beginning something new. This factor sometimes indicates an enhanced sense of courage and enthusiasm. A strong ability to get things going, maintain your inspiration, carry through with your commitments and complete projects. Your ability to deal with different styles and human diversity enhances your spirit of cooperation, and makes you a good choice for leadership positions. You have fixed energy strongest, which helps to account for your ability to stay with a project, relationship or idea until you are satisfied or until your responsibility is fulfilled. The downfall of this strength is not knowing when to let go, and you can be quite stubborn when facing the possibility of change or challenge. Your weakest link is in mutability, which indicates that you sometimes have trouble adapting to change or that you are somewhat inflexible in your attitudes.
When you view your chart as a whole, you'll notice that there is an emphasis of planets on the bottom half of your chart. This hemisphere emphasis signifies that you are most comfortable away from the glare of the public, and that you safeguard your privacy. Building stability and security are a strong focus in your life, and your career may be a means to an end in that regard. You can be uncomfortable in situations where you feel that you are put on display, and may need to cultivate your ability to speak or appear in front of groups, since this may not come easily for you.
You may also be concerned with the areas in your chart which appear to be empty. Never fear, these houses are not really vacant! You are just not placing as much emphasis in these relationships or environments, or you may be satisfying these needs through other dimensions of your life.
Projection of Your Real Self
Sometimes showing the world who you really are is not easy, and sometimes the world may not respond as you had hoped! It's helpful to take a look at the differences and similarities between the attitudes, impressions and images you project and the person who resides at the core of your being.
With your Sun in Leo you're likely to radiate a sense of regality and power, even if you're just sitting at home in your old jeans. Although you may not demand to be the center of attention, you can certainly carry it off when the spotlight is on you. You're driven by a need to create and express yourself, and enjoy playful people and situations. When challenged your pride can get in your way unless you develop some objectivity about yourself, which can be a tough job if you're too self-absorbed. It's okay to think of yourself as royalty some of the time, but just remember that others may not see you that way!
Your Ascendant is the face you present to the world, and shows how others see you. Your Ascendant, or rising sign, is Gemini. You may always appear young and are certainly likely to be young in your attitudes, regardless of your age. Others may see you as intelligent and witty, and your interest in a wide variety of ideas and people can certainly help you develop a cosmopolitan air. Whether or not you talk a lot, you are a communicator. Pay attention to your hands and facial movements. You have a lot to say! The energy associated with your Ascendant is Mercury. With Mercury in Leo, your voice and words can be powerful and commanding. Others are likely to take notice when you have something to say.
With your Moon in sextile aspect to your Ascendant you have the capability of becoming well-rounded by integrating your feelings about things with the way they are. You've probably learned that if you're not comfortable with something, you should probably look into it further or avoid it altogether. You may also be quite adept in relationship matters, since you can be aware of the way others are feeling or reacting in addition to staying in touch with your own feelings about what's going on.
The energy of Venus is in a supportive trine aspect to your Ascendant, providing a strong base of inner strength which is the result of a positive self-image. You may also find it easy and natural to support and compliment others, since your own self worth may not be in jeopardy from such demons as jealousy. Although you may not like highly competitive situations, you're usually capable of rising to the occasion when you do need to prove yourself. Your sense of artistry and eye for refinement are always noticeable, and you may choose to develop your talents as part of your life path. But you may also need to be on the alert for tendencies toward laziness and self-indulgence. Just loving the best things in life is sometimes not enough to have them all the time!
There are many different facets of the Moon in your chart. But when it comes to your identity, your Moon speaks volumes about who you are at the deepest level: the soul of your being. Your Moon in Aries reflects at attitude of independent thinking and a need for autonomy. Your real self is striving to achieve a true sense of individual identity. The courage which resides deep within your soul helps you get through all sorts of dilemmas and difficulties, although you may resent anything that hold you back or ties you down. You are the Warrior Woman and have the capacity to meet life on your own terms. You will fight for what you love and enjoy a life with ample opportunities to experience true passion.
Understanding Your Inner Feminine Self
Although the temptation is to think that just because you are a woman you are in touch with your inner feminine self, this is a much more complicated task than it appears to be! First of all, the model for the true power of femininity has been lost over recent history and is now becoming re-energized. Recovering this power is a personal task for each woman, and learning to use feminine power constructively on a collective level is another challenge for today's woman. This process is the cradle of self-healing, and provides the essence of your personal security.
The primary energies associated with your inner feminine self are the Moon and Venus, but Neptune and Pluto are also significant in your experience and expression of this part of your psyche. The Moon is the energy which filters through your subconscious self, and tells the story of your connection to the part of you which provides nurturing, support, care and comfort. The person who projects the model for your Moon energy is your mother, and you see her through the lens of your own emotional matrix, signified by the Moon. As you mature, you learn to send this energy into the world, but to be truly effective, you must first own this energy and know how to use it to care for yourself!
Your Aries Moon stimulates a powerful drive to establish independence and autonomy. Your feminist attitudes result from your independent way of thinking and may forge new frontiers to advance your position as a woman in the world. Passion is your life fuel, and you need people, situations and opportunities to feel the rush of energy which arises when you are carried away by passionate desire. You can be quite headstrong when you want something, or someone, and definitely have your wiles. Even though you may have been taught to think of others and their needs first, your need to be in the lead and first on the list is there all the while, and it is definitely okay to feel that way, if you deal with that need honestly. Taking a back seat while a husband achieves his aims and you settle for just a "job" or staying home (when you don't want to) could lead to trouble if you really want to develop a strong career of your own. Yet your support of another can be quite powerful when you feel that you are also getting what you want out of the situation, and you must remember that the choice is yours. Some type of challenge keeps you alive. Whether you choose a competitive career, participate in your favorite sports or recreation, initiate all the family outings, get involved in politics or take the lead in community activities - your energy, effort and excitement can be inspirational and contagious. But if you feel penned in, ignored, abused or excessively limited - you may also be challenged internally by your own anger at not having a chance to prove yourself. This anger can undermine your strength if it is not channeled into something productive. Men may have difficulty dealing with your independence, and even though you may be tempted to prove yourself according to the masculine rules of the game, as a woman you have some attributes that a man simply cannot employ! Instead of feeling that the game of life is always about winning and losing, try to re-focus on the idea of creating or not creating. And look for some healthy outlets which allow you to win a few and lose a few. You'll always be playing, and may as well enjoy the game according to rules which allow everyone to benefit.
With your Moon in supportive trine aspect to Mercury in your chart, you are an exceptionally perceptive woman. Your desire to learn, communicate and accumulate knowledge are ever-present, helping you maintain an open mind and youthful spirit. Communicating your thoughts and feelings is easy, and your sincerity and sympathetic nature encourage others to be open with you, too. Whether you choose to pursue a career path or if you're focusing on family concerns, your problem-solving abilities always work to your advantage. Part of your strength arises from the fact that you may be able to trust your "sense" of things as much as you trust the data about them. When you say that you have a "feeling" about something, it is unlikely that anyone will accuse you of being silly, since your sensibilities are usually right on the mark!
The opposition between your Moon and Venus stimulates a need to become aware of your feelings of self-worth. All the things that go into creating self-esteem are important for you to understand, and foremost among them is an awareness of your true needs. Your wants and needs can definitely be in conflict with one another, and you can fall victim to feeling that someone else loving you, or having certain things or a particular station in life define your worth as a person. Finding the common ground between meeting your needs and satisfying your wants is not always an easy task, but you can do it if you practice the art of self-awareness. Then, your relationships will improve dramatically, too. Part of your conflict can arise from accepting the true nature of being a woman - and that includes the process of change. Allowing yourself to express who you are at any given time in your personal evolution enhances your self-acceptance. This allows you to embrace those you love more fully and freely while you feel a more profound opening of your own heart. Loving in a truly soulful manner is much easier than loving from a distance, and you do need to know how it feels to be fully immersed in the process of being, creating and sharing the essence of love.
With your Moon in a square aspect to Jupiter, you may feel restless, and may not be entirely at home with the idea of limitation - any type of limitation. You expect a lot from yourself. When you're feeling low, you can overindulge in spending, eating or playing just to get that feeling of fullness which seems to be lacking. To develop the strength of your femininity, you need to have ample outlets through which to express your generosity and caring. You must also learn that nurturing yourself does not always mean overdoing it. You also need ways to sustain your enthusiasm, which means learning to pace yourself so that you remain excited about a project (or relationship) long enough to complete it.
Your Moon is in the Disseminating Moon Phase of the Lunation Cycle. The idea behind this lunar phase is that of broadcasting seeds, and although there is a masculine quality implied, this phase is definitely one which requires yin, or feminine, levels of continuity. You may feel driven to teach others, to share what you know, and are quite comfortable in the role of mentor. In fact, your mentoring flows so naturally that others may not realize that you're passing on to them a truly powerful depth of knowledge and understanding. Your own understanding of yourself and life experience can be enhanced when you open yourself and release your power, creativity and understanding into the world. The archetypal quality associated with this moon phase is that of "The Companion," the essence of equality, trust and sharing. It is crucial that you maintain a strong connection with the core of your being, so that you remain aware and awake, instead of allowing your own direction to be shaped by beliefs, ideals or attitudes which seem more powerful than your personal focus. Instead of being driven by these beliefs and ideals, you grow more fully into yourself when you add your ingredients to the soup and alter the outcome. Your crusade can be quite exciting.
Through the energy of Venus you express your feminine wiles, and also locate the part of yourself that needs to be emotionally expressive. Your sense of inner beauty and feelings of personal worth are also functions of Venus. Venusian energy is part of your connection to other women, and the placement of Venus in your chart can tell you a lot about your openness and acceptance of your own femininity. Although your Moon may indicate your basic emotional nature, the manner by which you express your feelings is frequently through Venusian energy.
Through the energy of Venus in Libra you express a sense of refinement and grace in your mannerisms and demeanor. You can be quite at home in social situations, and may have an excellent manner of expression. You may feel very comfortable surrounded by blue tones, pinks and mauves, and probably look fabulous in tasteful color combinations. You're drawn to the beautiful, and enjoy opportunities to dress in your finest attire. Others may comment on your style, charm and attractiveness, and you need to realize that although you may be physically beautiful, what radiates most powerfully is your inner beauty. Music and the arts are an important part of your life, and you may enjoy artistically talented people. In addition to your own artistic sensibilities, your eye for color, form and style may be your trademark. You like to think of relationships as a 50 - 50 proposition, but may tend to give more than you receive - especially if you're trying to please someone. However, you will thrive best in a situation which is truly balanced and where both people can stand on their own. The idea of love may seem much easier than the experience you have in loving, especially if you're in the wrong situation. For you to love, you need a circumstance which is harmonious and non-threatening, and where you are not tempted to fall into judgmental attitudes.
There are no major aspects to Venus in your chart. To a large extent, this indicates that the energy of Venus is empowered, because it operates without undue influence from others energies in your chart. You may find it easier to develop a strong sense of self worth, but only if you are clear about your true values. Feeling loved is very important; the way you go about it centers in your ability to confirm that you deserve the love you need! The qualities of this energy may be an outstanding force in your life, and this is the energy which people frequently associate with your identity.
Although the planets Neptune and Pluto move very slowly and are generational in nature, they do have an influence upon your psyche. These energies define much about the collective experience which shapes your inner self. You're experiencing Neptunian energy when you're in the midst of reverie, when you're deep in dreams and when you're feeling compassionate. Neptune drives your imagination, the realm of illusion and your psychic sensibilities. Because Neptune is difficult to grasp on a physical level, there is a lot about this energy that can be problematic, and when you are caught in the negative grasp of Neptune, you can give in to addictive behaviors, escapism and deception manifesting. But you do have a way of channeling this energy. It is through Neptune that you find the heart of compassionate love and understanding. This is the doorway to your inner self.
With Neptune in Libra, you are part of the generation which has been fascinated with beauty, the idea of peace and the hope of a perfect world. Perfect relationships are part of the perfect world, but it is your very generation that has blasted through the illusion of dysfunctionality. Your role as a woman within a relationship is one you are creating, along with the other women of your generation, born from 1942 to 1956. By holding a collective image of truly egalitarian and fair-minded relationships, where each person can fully express themselves, you have been part of a global change. The effects of this change are still manifesting.
Pluto represents the primordial essence. It is from this level that all transformation occurs: birth, death, illness and healing. It is also here that the powerful kundalini force continually regenerates itself. This is the space of all creation and all power. It is the space of origin: the Great Mother.
With Pluto in Leo, you are part of a generation of women born 1938 - 1957 who have had to learn about manifesting power and breaking the illusion of the patriarchy. You are among the women who have reshaped society. If you've developed a career, you may have done so against an old system. Instead of destroying that power base, your task within the collective is to change the nature of power through love and creativity, and through honoring the sanctity of life.
Owning Your Inner Masculine Self
For centuries, women were not allowed to assert themselves in the world, and carefully learned the role of supporter of their "men." Those who failed to respond in this manner were frequently shunned or punished, although there have always been women who defied convention! During this century particularly, women have broken out of their strictly "conventional" roles, and have been making their way in the world. Because of this, women have been successful at fulfilling more of their needs, and owning their own power more readily. As a result, a woman's relationship with the men in her life has also changed. Despite women's collective knowledge about the need to be whole persons, it is still sometimes easier to allow men (fathers, brothers, lovers and husbands) to "own" certain qualities. (They, in turn, prefer that women own certain qualities - like emotions!) But to become truly whole and functional, it is necessary to find and incorporate your inner masculine self into your sense of wholeness, instead of projecting that part of yourself onto others (most usually men) in your life.
Through the process of becoming at home with your ego, you gain a true sense of personal strength and power. To own this power, you must learn to acknowledge that it is okay to be recognized for who and what you are. Your Sun energy is the primary factor in the expression of ego needs. As a young girl, you may have seen your father through the filter of your Sun. His power of getting out into the world, and the manner by which he did it, have shaped your own sense of personal identity. And today, the Sun in your chart may symbolize significant men. But this energy is, in itself, the core of your spirit.
Since you're no stranger to the spotlight, you've probably had ample opportunities to express your assertiveness and personal strength. Your Leo Sun is a magnet for attention, and your actions and attitudes determine whether or not that attention is helpful or detrimental. You have the potential to radiate a powerful energy and may be an inspiration to those who need a stable source of confirmation that life is, indeed, okay. You can be intimidating to men who are unsure of themselves and may even take advantage of this; just try to remember your own insecurity when you first faced raw power! Taking on the challenge of leadership can be one of your most fulfilling experiences, although you can be quite domineering in some situations. If you've been giving away your power to the men in your life, you have probably attracted strong-willed individuals. But to become truly complete, you must learn to embrace and express your own individuality in a manner which opens your creativity and fills your heart.
Adding emphasis to your self-expression is your need to be recognized as a thoughtful or intelligent woman which is emphasized through the conjunction of your Sun and Mercury. The value you place upon learning, knowledge or information can be rather intense. You may also be under the impression that if you're smart enough, you'll get what you want from life. That may be true, but there are many levels of intelligence. One of those levels involves knowing when to stop talking and start listening, so remember that if you feel that you're not really being heard.
Your ability to assert yourself and pursue the fulfillment of your needs and desires is strengthened through the energy of your Sun in trine aspect to Mars. When you find yourself in situations which require you to take positions of leadership, you are quite capable of rising to the challenge. When you feel you need support, you can also reach out to others who will enjoy sharing the experience with you. Understanding that you are a strong woman and allowing yourself to test your strength in pursuit of your aims brings renewed vitality into your life.
Even when you are in a circumstance when you need to take charge or assert yourself, your gentility and compassion radiate through your actions and self-expression. Through the influence of your Sun in sextile aspect to Neptune, you have the capacity to accept yourself and others, and may be very open in your expression of faith in the principle of universal love. Embracing the masculine element of your psyche may be as simple as riding a bike - you just do it. Any other conflicts that you may have within yourself in this regard can be easily resolved through making an effort to integrate your spiritual and physical needs. You may over-idealize just a bit, so do remember that blind trust can be a problem.
You may be tempted to allow your life to be absorbed by the will and expectation of the men you love, from father to lover to husband. You may even have had an experience early in your life which tested your ability to survive. In truth, the conjunction between your Sun and Pluto indicates that you need to know what it is to express the charisma and intrigue which are the essence of your power as a woman. Men may be both fascinated and overwhelmed by your intensity, and you're likely to stir up a bit of controversy with anyone who is uncomfortable with their emotions, including their sexuality. As you fully integrate the essence of your will and drive with your need to create change, you can become an effective healer and powerful catalyst for growth.
Mars energy is assertive, aggressive and combative, and can be angry. These are not "feminine" qualities. In fact, women who possess and project these qualities from within themselves often get bad names, and are called "ball-busters," or other expletives, by the men who are dealing with them. But to become fully whole, you need to accept the manner in which you can utilize your Mars energy so that you are confident and strong with it, and so you can get into the world and make things happen for yourself!
You can be a bit sassy with Mars in Sagittarius and certainly have no trouble at all setting out on your adventures. Even as a little girl you were probably on the go, and now that you're a woman, you may have a restless energy which is only satisfied when you're on a quest. Your confidence and optimism may be radiant when you're in pursuit. You can become frustrated if you have to stay in one place too long.
Your ability to channel and focus your energy is amazing, and when you need to apply yourself to a task, you can achieve excellent results. Through the influence of Mars in sextile aspect to Saturn, you are capable of developing excellent self-discipline. A beneficial expression of your inner masculine psyche. You also can use positive restraint when necessary, allowing you to take advantage of the growth and maturity which occurs over time, instead of just opting for the thrill of the moment. The bottom line: you're good at being in charge. In fact, you really like it that way!
You are an exceptional visualizer: you've always known that if you can get a clear picture of what you want to do, you can probably do it. The energy of your Mars in sextile to Neptune helps you blend your ability to work from more than one level at a time. The effect you have on others can be purely mesmerizing. This magical quality can extend into your career, adding a gentility to your power and influence.
Your intrigue may be due to the influence of Mars trine Pluto, which stimulates your ability to blend your magnetism and charisma with action. You are a powerful woman, with the ability to direct your energy toward healing and transformational change. Men may be captivated by you, even when you're not doing anything out of the ordinary - for you. You can employ your sensuality to your advantage, and you know what turns people on.
Developing Your Mind
Education and learning are lifelong processes. Your approach to developing your intellect is multifaceted, but there are special indicators in your astrological chart which help you understand the best ways to develop your mentality. Improving and strengthening communication skills is also part of developing your mind, since connecting to others is certainly improved if you can effectively illustrate your point of view!
Although the energy of Mercury is traditionally considered to be the main indicator of your mentality, there are also other qualities which are part of your mental and intellectual self. First, let's look at Mercury, which is the energy through which you link your thoughts and ideas with others. When you want an audience, you can be quite magnetic in your manner of speaking with Mercury in Leo. You can also be an attentive listener when you are interested in anyone or anything, and definitely enjoy being entertained. You're a woman who commands attention through your elegant style and presentation. Sometimes, though, your own opinions can get in the way of learning something new or different. It is rare that anyone will ever be able to convince you to change your mind unless you want to do so, although you may not be able to take "no" for an answer when you're on the other side of the picture!
Your imagination is easily stimulated with Mercury in sextile aspect to Neptune. Self-expression flows readily, and writing, music, painting and photography can all be worthwhile avenues for you to express your ideas and view of the world. You may be an excellent mimic and talented actress.
You are a perceptive thinker with Mercury conjunct Pluto, and can be rather intense when you're focused on something or someone. An excellent researcher, you like to probe beneath the surface for the information you need and may be fascinated with subjects like psychology, metaphysics or life science.
The energy of your Moon also has a mental component. The Moon is the realm of thought, the process of subconscious thinking, and plays a strong role in intuitive thinking. You like to learn about things that get your energy moving. Through your Aries Moon your learning filters are more stimulated by exploring ideas which are challenging and require some creative thinking. You also prefer to learn at your own pace and may not like the idea of being held back because somebody else has not quite reached your level of understanding.
Jupiter also plays an important role in learning, stimulating you to look ahead into the realm of possibility, beyond the horizon of the now. Through the energy of Jupiter, you share what you know with others. As a woman, you are likely to feel most at home when you use this energy to encourage and support others, but you can also apply this to yourself! Your philosophical approach to life and learning may be very much like mother taught you with Jupiter in Cancer. Your adherence to some of the attitudes which shaped earlier generations has great value for you, and you may have a keen understanding of the importance of learning from history. Sometimes, however, your emotional attachment to your philosophies can get in the way of the essence of how and what you believe.
The idea of being unusual seems quite fine to you, since you feel much more like yourself when you're expressing your individualism. With Jupiter conjunct Uranus you have a very high level of perception and need to trust your first impressions. Your religious beliefs or spiritual ideals may play an important role in your life, and you may be more attracted to a spiritual path which allows room for your individual growth at your own rate.
The purpose of Saturn is to provide clarity, structure, form and discipline - elements which are certainly important to learning. Saturn functions primarily as your inner teacher. Mothers are the most influential Saturnian models in western society. They provide the structure, guidance and support for their children in the realms of learning, socialization or personal growth. Once you enter society as a child, teachers play the Saturnian role. But the role of mothers and teachers in relationship to Saturn is to help you define the structure upon which you will build your life. Then, you "own" your Saturn, and know how to discipline and focus your own energy.
You can be a resourceful student and quite adept in research and investigation with Saturn in Scorpio. You may learn better and perform at your peak when you feel safe and well-protected. Circumstances which leave you feeling exposed are threatening, especially if you're working on something important or developing a creative project or idea. You prefer to work in relative secrecy and may not appreciate having your efforts exposed without your permission. Life science, medicine, psychology and metaphysics are good areas for your study and focus.
The areas of your chart which are connected most strongly to mental and intellectual development are the 3rd, 9th and 11th Houses. The 3rd House of your chart deals with communication and the development of concepts.
It's easier for you to communicate and share ideas about things which stimulate your emotions with Cancer ruling your 3rd House. You may also have a high memory capacity, thinking in terms of whole pictures. However, you may not really be a good student, because you would prefer to "absorb" information; it seems so much easier that way. You do absorb a lot, but when you need facts, may regret that you neglected to fire up the old brain cells. With the Moon ruling your 3rd House, you are most likely to share your ideas with people who feel familiar and safe. You also prefer to communicate with passion and feeling. Stale numbers may never appeal to you.
The energy of Uranus in your 3rd House adds a special ingenuity to your thinking. You love projecting yourself and your thoughts into the future and may be quite inventive and visionary. Although you may be a rebellious and revolutionary thinker, you are a natural scientist, always seeking the yet undiscovered truth. Maintaining your concentration can be difficult, and you need ample opportunities to work at your own pace. However, some structure will help you avoid scattering your mental energy. Leaving room for your spontaneous urges to get up and go is very important, and anyone who is in relationship with you needs to understand that you can change your mind or decide to do something at a moment's notice.
Your 9th House shows your approach to higher learning, which is usually accomplished through a college or professional degree program. Subjects like philosophy, religion, political science, cultural pursuits and the like are strongly associated with this facet of your development.
You may take education seriously, and are likely to prefer learning things that have a realistic basis with Capricorn on the cusp of your 9th House. A practical approach is much more suitable than abstract learning. You may be very much the "show me" type of woman who prefers to have evidence for all the theories. With Saturn ruling your 9th House, you are a prime candidate for academia, and might fit into the academic pattern quite nicely, including becoming a teacher. Regardless of your aims, your education needs to provide a reasonable option for making a living. This energy also stimulates a somewhat orthodox approach to religion and philosophy, although you may have a strong affinity for nature religions and ritual.
There are no planets in your 9th House, indicating that extended education in a formal setting may not be your highest priority. Although you may be quite philosophical or approach life itself as a learning experience, you may have interruptions in formal education or may find that you learn in different ways than those found in more academic settings. To further understand your approach to education study the meaning of the sign on the cusp of the 9th House explained above, and reflect on the energy of Jupiter and its sign and house placement as indicators of the development of your higher mind.
Through the 11th House you learn from peers, and connect with your community. The 11th House involves your special interests, too. This is very much the school of life, because this is also the area which relates to developing your goals.
Your desire to have the things you want and to experience a life of true security begins with your dreams. With Pisces influencing your 11th House, your dreams play a major part in accomplishing your aims. Your ability to envision what you want from life can be quite empowering. And if you can do something which confirms the probability of making your dreams happen, then you can be even more successful. Although you have to start with the dream, at some point you need to touch the physical reality. It's like career day at school. You may think, "I'd like to be a doctor." But until you follow a doctor around for a few hours and get a sense of what it would be like, you may wonder if it actually fits. By making some physical connection to your dreams, you can become a masterful creator of your life. Neptune's rulership of this house adds a desire to make a difference in the world to your goals. You know that you can be part of the change which will add meaning and compassion to the experience of life.
The influence of your Moon in the 11th House draws your attention to the need to be involved with others. Your goals, interests, hobbies and professional development may be more enjoyable if you're sharing them with special friends. You may feel a strong connection to your women friends and may even have a special affinity for political issues which are connected to women. Your work will be more satisfying if you feel that it helps you accomplish some thing deeply meaningful, instead of just spending your time making money doing a job which means nothing to you personally. So, when you're setting your personal goals, take your feelings about your choices into consideration. Listen to your soul's voice.
Your Special Edge
It's true. Women are definitely the intuitive sex. The process of intuitive awareness may be more developed for you as a woman because you are more cyclically aware, thanks to your anatomy and hormonal changes. But there is something more. As a woman, your natural affinity with the energy of the Moon increases your receptivity, an important ingredient in opening to the intuitive process. Intuitive awareness is multifaceted. You can use it when you're dealing with emotional and psychological issues, you can apply it to your creative expression, and you can take advantage of your intuition in your work as part of your decision-making. Developing your intuitive process is like developing any other sensibility - you have to concentrate some time, effort and energy in order to finely hone this element of your psyche. Although some quality of intuition may be there innately, to make the most of it, you must learn to trust, listen and incorporate it into your life.
The parts of your chart which are most strongly associated with intuitive sensibility are the water houses: the 4th House, the 8th House and the 12th House. The 4th House is connected to your soul history. It is here that you seek a sense of home, a connection to your family, and a feeling of safety and comfort. It is here that your soul remembers your past, even if your conscious mind cannot fit the pieces together.
With the sign Leo on the cusp of your 4th House, you may feel that your family fate is indeed tied to your own. Yet you may also feel drawn to break away from the restraints which are implied in your family history, and to do things which support your individuality and autonomy. You may nourish others by example: in fact, your example can have a greater impact upon your family than you may realize! By listening to your intuitive voice concerning the best way to handle family needs and develop a true sense of security, you may be able to set your ego aside. With the Sun ruling your 4th House, you may find that sometimes your ego can get in the way of your intuitive process. It's important to define the difference between selfish desires and true inner guidance. Strive to avoid trying to control the yearnings of your soul. Sometimes you may have to tell your ego to sit quietly and listen to the part of you which speaks in a quiet whisper.
The Sun's placement in your 4th House stimulates a powerful need to discover your identity through your family ties and then, beyond, into the history of your soul. You have a very powerful survival urge, and may cling to the people and places you know because your identity can be very strongly tied to them. Yet, as you are maturing and growing toward becoming a whole woman, you may discover ways in which you are different from the family you knew. Your father and mother may seem to connect to a place deep within your soul, and intuitively you've always known that the flame of your soul had its individual roots. Weaving together the core of your being with the roots and history which have preceded you is one of the key factors involved in achieving the security you so deeply desire.
Mercury's position in your 4th House can stimulate a tendency to become overly concerned with family matters or to worry too much about what's happening at home. Freeing your mind from your emotional fears or anxieties can be accomplished by allowing yourself to achieve a sense of mental rest: something soothing, like bathing your consciousness in true quiet and clarity. This can be achieved through meditation, and you may discover that everyday acts like washing dishes or preparing dinner provide an excellent opportunity to be active yet contemplative.
The influence of Pluto in your 4th House stimulates a powerful drive to uncover the mysteries of your soul. In the process, you may discover old shame, fear or resentments lurking beneath the surface which undermine your ability to listen and respond to your intuitive voice. If you are to break away from the forces which seem to have an uncontrollable hold over your life and free yourself from these old wounds, you need to find their origins. Then you must allow yourself to release your attachment to the wounds themselves, surrender to the Healing Woman within your soul, and open your consciousness. Free of the guilt which has tortured your inner being for so long, your penetrating awareness can concentrate upon creating true transformation.
The 8th House brings you into your deepest emotional attachments, and is the space where you are alchemically transformed. This is the seat of your magical power: your ability to change yourself in order to become whole. Here is the heart of healing, but here you also hide your greatest vulnerabilities. Most people shy away from dealing with 8th House issues like sex, death and taxes. After all, there can be problems with any of them, and they are not easy to explore out in the open. But there is more. For your intuitive development, this area represents the part of you which holds your power, and you must learn to accept and embrace this side of yourself to feel truly satisfied with your life.
With Capricorn influencing your 8th House you may have quite a struggle in matters pertaining to the processes of change and personal transformation. This includes your feelings about aging, and your tendency may be to do whatever you can to avoid the aging process. Some things are inevitable, such as physical changes. Living in fear of the things you don't understand, like aging or death, will only block your ability to deal with these changes positively. You can control many of the effects inevitable changes will have in your life by focusing your mind and energy upon constructive possibilities. Saturn's energy is also an important factor in matters of this house, and you are likely to discover that the healing and rejuvenation you desire can only occur when you are taking full responsibility for yourself and your life circumstances.
Since you do not have any planets in your 8th House you may not feel very strongly driven to probe into the mysteries of life. Perhaps you do not have issues in this regard, but there may also be other factors in your chart which drive you in this capacity, and do not need the additional focus in this particular area. To further understand your 8th House study the sign associated with it explained above, and look to the planet associated with that sign.
The 12th House is the space of your dreams. Here, you surrender your conscious self and float into the beyond. This is also the place in your psyche which contains your past, and where you are one with all humanity. Your superconscious self rests in this part of your psyche: the part of yourself that transcends your everyday reality.
With Aries influencing your 12th House, you may have a highly active subconscious self. Your dreams may reveal that you are more temperamental than you appear, and you need a place to channel this fiery quality. By actively participating in understanding your dreams, you may discover a new realm of awareness. With Mars ruling this house you may be more successful participating in "active" forms of meditation, such as yoga, tai chi, martial arts or dance. Just sitting quietly trying to gain a sense of what is happening on the inner realms may leave you feeling frustrated. But once you've learned to channel that energy, you can then develop a quality of mindfulness which accompanies you in every state of consciousness. You can develop a very powerful intuition, but may not always listen to it!
Since you do not have any planets in your 12th House you may not feel a strong urge to probe into your dreams, and you may not feel extremely tied to your past. However, to fully understand the nature of this house study the meaning of the sign on the cusp, explained above, and look to the planet associated with that sign.
The energy of your Moon plays an important role in your intuitive development. Since your Moon is related to your subconscious mind, it should not surprise you that this is the part of you that contains all knowledge about yourself and your life. Occasionally it's a good idea to purge from your psyche the things you no longer need - much like an internal house cleaning. Your hormonal cycles provide an excellent opportunity to do just that, and by using this natural rhythm to release, you can feel much more open to clearer transmission of intuitive thinking!
Sometimes, you can be too busy pursuing your desires to listen to your intuitive voice with the Moon in Aries. You do have a very keen intuitive sensibility but don't like to listen to it when it means slowing down. You may also be more intuitive about things which are new to you. For example your first impressions are usually quite powerful. Just because you may lose interest in something, you may think your intuition was wrong. That's just impatience!
There are other points related to the Moon which you'll find in your chart. They are called the Moon's Nodes, and are not planets, but points in space. The influence of the Moon's Nodes is felt on an inner level. From the South Node, you learn about your past and the natural inclinations which may influence many of your subconscious choices. In some ways, the South Node suggests old habits. The North Node of the Moon suggests a spiritual and emotional challenge, and represents the directions you may feel compelled to follow in your evolutionary path.
Challenged with the task of learning to carry your responsibilities in a mature manner, you are learning the importance of sustained effort with your North Node in Capricorn. You may also be fascinated by the processes of aging and the wisdom which requires time to develop, although you may struggle against them to some extent. Becoming involved in activities which allow you to be responsible and positively ambitions, you may discover that you really enjoy reaching the heights of achievement. The influence of your Cancer South Node tempts you to be overly sensitive to feeling of rejection or abandonment, instead of learning to stand on your own. The confidence and judgment you develop will not only resolve some of your fears, but may give you the energy you need to become a trustworthy guide of generations who will follow in your footsteps.
Uranian intuition is the flash of insight. Sometimes that flash is so brilliant that you change your entire life to follow it's glow. This is also the part of you which defies restraint, and certainly your intuitive mind can celebrate that possibility!
You've already discovered that you're an intuitive thinker. With Uranus in the 3rd House, you probably cannot imagine trying to make decisions without taking your intuitive promptings into consideration. You can also be quite intuitive about the best ways to connect with other people, and may experience sudden changes in your life due to the influences which occur from networking with others.
Neptune's energy takes you into the world of the etheric - the place beyond the physical which is filled with mystical wonder. You surrender to this part of yourself when you meditate, when you give in to your creative muse, and when you give of yourself to others. In developing your intuitive and psychic sensibilities, Neptune provides a primary ingredient: letting go. Through this energy you surrender yourself to the greater truth. But be careful: you can also surrender your will to the power of deception and abuse through another of Neptune's doorways!
With Neptune in your 5th House it's easier for you to release and open your intuitive mind when you're in the midst of creating. Your imaginative and impressionable sensibilities work to your advantage when applied to self-expression - like music, the arts, dancing, writing - but any creative outlet allows you to open to this flow. Any situation which allows you to open your heart will enhance your psychic abilities!
Pluto's insight is on the deeper psychic level. Through Plutonian energy you can read between the lines. You see the twitch of an eye that tells the truth, you read the movement of hands, the tone of voice that betrays what words fail to say. Developing your Plutonian energy requires that you reach into the very depths of yourself and become familiar with your entire being. Yes, that includes your shadow self, your darker side - and it also encompasses your passion, your strength of survival and your ability to heal.
The influence of Pluto in your 4th House has been explored earlier in this section of your report.
Nurturing and Creating a Home
Nurturing. Mothering. These experiences are associated with womanliness, but are not the sole definers of your womanhood. Although women are the only ones who can become mothers, it is not necessary to be a mother to become an exceptional nurturer! Nurturing is a natural expression for women - but the manner in which it is done is very individualized. Whether with children, lovers, partners, friends - or even with your own parents - you have ample opportunities to nurture others. The person who needs your nurturing most, however, is YOU. Although caring for others can fill a special place in your soul, the way you care for yourself is especially important. You may derive nourishment from developing your talents and skills, or through your work. Study or travel can be nourishing. And something as simple as a long soak in the tub can refill your spirit. Part of nourishing yourself is physical, part emotional and part is definitely environmental: what you create in a home. In exploring these factors together, you can begin to see the link between these different levels of personal fulfillment.
Yet another facet of your Moon beyond what you've already explored, is what your Moon shows about your deepest needs. You can only feel whole when these needs are answered and fulfilled. Although it is tempting to look outside, your wisdom tells you that a great part of the responsibility for nourishment comes from within yourself.
Your profound need for independence and autonomy driven by your Aries Moon can sometimes lead to your feeling that you're rushing through life. Although slowing down may not be the answer all of the time, allowing ample space in your life for enjoyment can help you put the brakes on. Your playful attitude and love of challenge may encourage you to pursue sports as a favorite pastime, and staying active is one of the most nurturant things you can do for yourself. When you let your energy become stagnant, your emotional vitality sags. When nurturing others, it might be easier for you to play than it is to discipline, and consequently, your children may think of you more in the context of fun. That's okay with you, and you probably feel the same way about your intimate connections - if they're not fun, what good are they? Your passion ignites when you're smiling, and you smile a lot when you're enjoying a challenge. You also have a powerful protective streak, and if anyone you love needs a defender, you're there. You might also need to cultivate relationships which give you a sense that you, too, have somebody on your side. Standing on your own is okay, but your soul fills up when you can share your joy with those you love.
Saturn also plays a positive role in nurturance. Despite the bad rap Saturn sometimes receives, this energy is necessary to your stability and growth. Through Saturn, you learn to take responsibility for yourself and your actions. Saturn also seems to be the repository of your fears, and it's important to understand and deal with these emotions in order to be whole. Trying to repress such feelings blocks your ability to feel the positive, supportive energy that life has to offer. In many respects, the energy of Saturn is played out in your life by your experience with authority figures. Your mother and father, extended family and teachers were your primary Saturnian influences when you were a young girl, and their direction and guidance still whisper in the way you approach establishing your personal security. As an adult woman, you express Saturn through the manner in which you take responsibility for yourself and your needs for stability and security.
Your interest in restoration permeates every part of your life, and is strongly influenced by your Saturn in Scorpio. Even if you sometimes fall short, you understand the importance of making the most of your life and its resources. Your influence upon others who cannot see the value in something on the surface can be immense, because you are the master of removing the crust and exposing the jewel at the core. You may also know when there's nothing there to expose, in which instance you can take what is useless or outworn and recycle it in the best possible manner. This attitude may be especially emphasized since you are a woman and experience the variations related to the cyclical changes within your own body. You can learn to make the use of the different levels of energy which occur at different times to become more productive, more secure and more confident in the natural order of things.
Your 4th House illuminates what you need in a home environment, where you will feel most comfortable and how you like to live. It is here that you create a feeling of safety, where you can let your hair down and be yourself.
The qualities of Leo radiate through this part of your chart, indicating that you need a home which is solid, strong and where you can occasionally hold court! Although you may not always entertain, you love having a place which is warm and inviting to others. Plenty of light will feel most nurturing, so make sure the sun can shine in. In the winter you'll adore a warm fire. Your decor may range from simple to lavish, although you to love to add dramatic touches. The influence of your Sun in this house adds a need to feel that you are in control of your personal environment. Even though you may be generous and enjoy entertaining, you're not likely to appreciate unannounced or uninvited visitors.
With the Sun in your 4th House you're definitely Queen of the Castle! You need a home which reflects your personality, not just a place to live. Anyone who visits will see your special touches. You may also enjoy inviting special friends into your personal space, and family gatherings at home an be quite meaningful to you. Family is important, and the creation of your own family may take a strong priority. You may become the matriarchal leader of your family, and your influence and ideas can have a powerful effect. If you feel that you are carrying on the traditions of a long line of influences, it's probably true. And if you are inclined to alter or change those traditions, you can probably accomplish your aims as long as your approach flows from love and not unresolved anger or competitiveness.
Mercury's energy in your 4th House adds a liveliness to your home space. There may always seem to be ample communication happening at your house, with either friends or family sharing ideas or someone on the telephone. This placement also stimulates a need to express your feelings, and in your personal relationships, you can be quite animated in showing your emotions. When you're upset, you can even be a little high-strung. This energy is unsettling in the home environment and sometimes brings frequent moves. Your tendency to worry about family and home matters is also amplified, and if you're fretting over possibilities, may miss the opportunity to experience what is actually happening. At home, you need a place for reflection where you can write letters, make entries in your personal journal or read quietly.
With Pluto in your 4th House, you prefer a home space that shields you from the intensity of the world and protects you from prying eyes. You may have a special desire to restore an older or vintage home. If you're so inclined and have the knack of taking a place that may appear worn down, shabby or in a state of disrepair into a new life. This talent also extends to your ability to re-establish your sense of security if you've experienced a major change or crisis. Even if your life has taken turns which have left you feeling spent, you can regenerate and begin anew. Your relationship to your family of origin may have its hidden side, but you are the only one who can heal your hurts from the past. One of your tasks may be to transform the old patterns of your "family fate" and to take the soul of your family onto a different course. But watch the temptation to compulsively repeat bad habits you learned at home. Some of them may not serve you particularly well now!
Meeting the World on Your Terms
Career and financial arenas were for many years primarily part of the "man's world." Women stayed at home, cared for children, and took care of the social needs of the family. Now that so many women are in the work place, and with the advent of more open relationships where both partners are likely to share paying bills and making financial decisions, the world is changing. You can define your identity in the world in many ways today, including developing a career. Meeting the world on your own terms involves uncovering the manner in which you might shine most effectively and the way you use your resources, and creating a pathway which allows you to realize your goals.
The Midheaven, which is usually near the top of your astrological chart, is signified by an astrological sign. This point in your chart represents your vocation, your calling in life, and the sign at the Midheaven gives you several clues about your path in the outside world. Just as importantly, the Midheaven signifies your blossoming into wholeness and the manner by which you might best accomplish this experience. Your 10th House also provides information about your career path.
With Aquarius at your Midheaven, your interest in areas which are off the beaten track may be marked, but you may also find science fascinating. You need to be recognized for something unique which sets you aside from everybody else, and you require freedom to get there. For a career to satisfy you, it will have to provide a mental challenge, and it would be even better if your could utilize technological innovations in the process. Your life path may be most fulfilling when you feel that you're on the leading edge and when you're experiencing a real sense of uplifted awareness. The energy of Uranus also influences your Midheaven, adding a need to employ your intuitive insights to your career endeavors. When you're working independently, you're inspired to put forth your best efforts. You may also be somewhat revolutionary in your approach to your work.
Through the influence of Uranus in Cancer, you can be quite adept working in fields which serve the needs of women and families. Your influence in women's issues may be one of your greatest accomplishments, and whether or not you are in the forefront of political actions, you can forge new pathways.
The process of work itself is usually seen through the 6th House in your chart. Through this facet of yourself, you express your approach and attitudes about working, and your ability to cooperate with others is also indicated here. This house is related to your physical health, and it's no surprise that you might hear the complaint (or feel it yourself), "I'm sick of my job." Instead of feeling thrown off balance by the tasks required to get through life, there are ways to use this part of your time and energy to strengthen your life.
Libra on the cusp of your 6th house indicates that you need to work in an environment which is serene and pleasant. Your productivity can be affected if you work in a hostile environment. However, if conflicts arise, you may be the peacemaker. With Venus ruling this house you may enjoy working with others, and can be helpful and supportive, especially toward those people you really like. You might enjoy working in a field which allows you to use your sense of fair play, like the law. Or you might be successful in the beauty industry, interior design and decorating, or fashion design.
Your attitudes toward your work are very important, and with Saturn in your 6th House, your need to exercise true responsibility on the job is critical. You have a tendency to demand too much of yourself and others, and although it is necessary to take your work seriously, learning when to pull back a little and relieve the stress will make a big difference in the level of satisfaction you gain from the experience. If you feel that you only seem to attract situations which require you to work hard so that somebody else benefits, the first step toward changing it is to find a way to experience your own rewards. In truth, applied effort, discipline and good judgment can be your keys to success. Overworking or staying in menial positions because you don't know how to get out of them will never produce the results you dream of achieving. You can be very successful in business when you use your sense of positive restraint in balance with the need to reach out from time to time. Jobs which require a good sense of planning, an eye for workmanship and an awareness of structure and design can be both satisfying and rewarding. Teaching may also be an excellent outlet for your abilities. You may need to increase your own education in order to improve your job opportunities.
As a woman, you are innately creative. Although you may not consider yourself an artist, your creative spirit and drive are the mechanisms through which you shape your own life. Creative self-expression is seen strongly in the 5th House of your chart, and by incorporating these elements into your career, you will gain greater satisfaction from your work. If you have the time to concentrate on more recreational forms of creativity, this is the part of your chart which indicates what brings you pleasure. Life itself can certainly be a pleasurable experience - all the time, not just on holidays!
Virgo's influence on your 5th House shows that you approach creativity and play in a rather matter-of-fact manner. You're happiest when you're producing something, and may feel most satisfied when you've put your best efforts into whatever you're doing. Regardless of your choices, you'll work diligently toward the best possible mastery of your talents and skills. You may have strong manual dexterity skills, and can be quite adept as a writer, teacher or musician. Whatever your artistry, your precision and attention to detail will set you aside from everyone else. Mercury's association with this house adds a mental dimension to whatever creative avenues you pursue. It also indicates that you may find special enjoyment from recreation which is mentally stimulating.
With the energy of Venus in your 5th House your artistic sensibilities are best expressed through a creative venue. The arts are especially important in your personal development, and are also likely to provide fortunate opportunities for you as well. You may enjoy sharing your talents with young people and guiding them to open to their own creativity and appreciation for the arts.
You're fortunate to have Neptune in your 5th House. This imaginative energy adds a special touch to your creative power and heightens your artistic sensibilities. Music and the arts may be an important part of your life, and you may love drama and the theater. You may also have an excellent eye for photography or cinematography.
One of the most powerful creative drives in your chart is your Sun. Since this is the energy which can drive you to be noticed, learning to cultivate this aspect of yourself in a positive manner can amplify your success in life.
Well, admit it, sometimes it's just fun to show off with your Sun in Leo. You may even be quite low-key, and gracious about giving others the spotlight. But you know that when you're shining in all your glory, that the light can be blinding for a moment, and then, well, you're just gorgeous! To feel a true sense of success, you may need that few moments of fame and glory. And if you're doing it right, the Universe may even grant you more!
Your individuality is expressed through many different energies in your chart, but the energy which is most closely associated with the unique and individualistic part of yourself is Uranus. Through Uranian energy, you display your ingenuity and make the breakthroughs which allow you to move into new experiences. Uranus also prompts your rebellious nature, and the placement of this energy in your chart shows you where you are staging your own personal revolution.
With Uranus in Cancer you've been born into a life of society's revolution within the family and have experienced the development of new insights into emotional needs. Along with other women born from 1948 to 1956, your revolution has been fought in the kitchen, over matters of reproduction, and at family reunions. You've changed the roles women play and the expectations of women in the world, consequently bringing an evolution in family relationships and within society itself: an evolutionary change which is continuing in its effects. Your shared insights have included a world where girls and women have the same opportunities as boys and men. To understand where you are creating this revolution within your own life, look to the house in which Uranus resides in your chart.
The spark of Uranian energy in your 3rd House suggests that your unique ideas and special communicative abilities can be utilized in your career development. You may enjoy working in high-tech or scientific fields, and you may also have plenty of interesting ideas in other areas. A career which allows you to blend your intuitive sensibilities and logical thought processes will be especially satisfying.
The energy of Chiron is also a powerful factor for your outreach into the world. Through Chiron, you discover both strength and vulnerability. The vulnerability represented by Chiron is, in many ways, like a doorway which allows you to penetrate a deeper level of personal mastery. This is the process of initiation not unlike that which a Shaman must endure in order to learn how to travel between the worlds. Through Chiron, you learn how to travel between the world of your inner self and the world outside to achieve a sense of true purpose and wisdom.
You have Chiron in Capricorn, adding a need to accomplish a life purpose which is based upon achieving a true sense of success. These successes can be in any area, and are not always related to career. Supporting a child as a patient mother or teacher, providing resources when something need to be built in your community, or lending a helping hand can all be part of this. On a personal level you need to establish goals and find ways to realize them. Sometimes, the goal may just be getting through the day. On a larger scale you are also learning about positive self-control. It is here that you will experience the greatest satisfaction, when you've found the best ways to direct your own energy toward accomplishing something which is meaningful to you.
With Chiron in your 9th House you're searching for answers to all the ultimate questions as part of your quest to discover your life purpose. You may feel a strong urge to travel, desire to learn and yearning to find the teacher whose wisdom will inspire you to find truth. In essence, all these things are inside you, and the travel and learning you may need most to experience will happen on the inner planes. Doing it physically is okay too. It's good practice.
Opening Your Heart
Ah, Love.... Songs, poems, novels, fairy-tales, movies all extol the power and pleasure of love - and for good reason: love is the food of life! There are many opportunities to love, in fact, a love affair with life is not a bad idea. But you also may need to "grow" love by sharing it, and therein is the seed of all relationships.
The planetary energies which are most usually associated with love are Venus and Neptune. Venusian energy radiates directly from your heart, from the center of yourself, where love resides deep within. Loving is an inner experience. The more you open to the love you hold within yourself, the more it grows. Your feelings of worthiness are represented by Venus, and as you grow to understand and appreciate your own value as a woman, it becomes easier to let this love energy flow through your life. Neptunian energy is Divine compassionate love - the love which does not judge and readily forgives. Neptune is the realm of romance, mysticism and heavenly perfection. Truly transcendent Neptunian love arises when you have healthy boundaries of your own, otherwise, you can become a victim of your own illusions!
Thoughts of love may have always filled much of your time. The influence of Venus in Libra stimulates a sense that you are more viable and worthy if someone loves you. Okay, then go look in the mirror again. There you are. When you love yourself (even without make-up), your heart opens more readily, and the love you give to others is more alive. But if you do not really love yourself, and just know you'll feel better when someone else loves you, you'll never find what you're seeking from love. You need to know the pure beauty of your own heart, and to love another, you look for their real beauty. Whether you see this through the way he laughs, the tone of his voice or the feel of his embrace, the color, light and magic you feel are the result of finding the beauty of love. Your life may always seem more complete if you have a partner who shares your life experiences, and you'll be happiest in a relationship with a partner who believes in and practices equality. But to know that sense of equality, you must value yourself. And there you are again, full circle, facing yourself. You, too, must offer the same equality, respect and sense of fairness you demand from those you love. After that, the rest is pure delight.
Your need to learn about true cooperation in loving relationships is underscored through the influence of your Moon in opposition to Venus. It can be difficult to know exactly how much you are supposed to give, and when it is your turn to receive. The only solution is to maintain an clear awareness of your feelings, and to ask the same of your husband or lover. Part two is sharing that awareness and striving to create a real harmony between your needs and feelings for one another. Too much selfishness on either part will result in withdrawal and undermine trust. You are a lovable woman, and may have to convince yourself that your needs deserve just as much attention as those of others.
As one of the generation of women born with Neptune in Libra, you have been inundated with endless images, stories and myths about true love and romance. You've dreamt of the perfect marriage and may have believed that you would, indeed, be rescued by that perfect prince. But as you've grown up, you've found out that the prince may not only be late, but that he may not arrive at all! Hope springs eternal, however, and thanks to open discussion about relationship, you've also learned about addiction, codependency and dysfunctionality and some ways to get out of these patterns and traps. Rule number one: Create your own dream by understanding yourself and your needs. From that point, you begin to separate from the trap of the collective still searching for the perfect other, and from the beacon of your own soul, you send out a light that attracts someone who may, indeed, fit your needs quite nicely after all.
The influence of your Sun in sextile aspect to Neptune indicates that you need a relationship which embodies many qualities, ranging from physical to emotional to spiritual connections. Integrating the spiritual essence of yourself into your relationships is easy when you have a partner who respects and supports you as a whole woman. You are most drawn to a man whose spirituality is a powerful part of his life.
Beautiful words, poetic ideas and spiritual quests are all part of your fantasies of love with Mercury in sextile aspect to Neptune. And if you put your energy and focus into creating the manifestation of these ideals, you may actually see some of those dreams becoming real. You'll adore a man who spirituality is genuine and whose ability to show compassion is part of the core of his being, because that is a reflection of a true part of yourself.
You can be relatively clear about the true nature of the men you attract with Mars in sextile aspect to Neptune. While you can support and admire a man for his dreams and ideals, you can also see the reality of the present moment. By working together with the ingredients you possess in the relationship, you may very well manifest those dreams. And you may also be quite clear about your own dreams which need the support and understanding of the man you love. This mutuality can be shared on many levels, and can build a powerful bond which helps to sustain you when reality is harsh.
Jupiter's square to Neptune indicates a frustration between your ideals or beliefs and the essence of Truth. On an inner level you may feel that a particular path is right, but the teachings you've learned may not echo those inner feelings. It's like the discovery of hypocrisy from someone who speaks about one truth but lives a life which does not reflect that truth. You are struggling to integrate the truth with your beliefs, and your relationships may act as a catalyst which challenges you to explore those ideals further. You may also find that differences in spiritual practice are quite difficult to handle within your relationships.
With Uranus and Neptune in square aspect to one another, you are part of a generation filled with an uncomfortable concern for religious and spiritual ideals. You may not know whom you can trust in the worlds of politics and business, and are likely to struggle with your search for a meaningful spiritual path which is part of the framework of your life on its most intimate level. It's important that you learn ways to identify fanaticism, since you can either fall victim to others and their fanatical ideals or become too overbearing with your own. The influence of these energies can be problematic in relationships, particularly if you do not trust your inner voice and allow another to determine your needs in areas which you must discover for yourself.
The houses in your chart which amplify love relationships are the 5th, 7th, and 11th Houses. Through the 5th House, you experience giving love. It is through this facet of yourself that you have love affairs, playful and recreational relationships and where you produce the offspring of loving. The offspring can range from artistic endeavors to children. But when dealing with relationships, this is the space which is usually occupied by loving another in an intimate sense.
Virgo's influence on your 5th House adds a practical and methodical approach to love affairs. You're not likely to open your heart unless you have a meeting of the minds. You may even have a list of the characteristics you hope to find in a lover and may not let a number of men through the door if they fail to meet your strict criteria. This sense of discrimination can be quite helpful, particularly if your tend to be overly romantic. The energy of Mercury plays an important role in the way you show love. You may enjoy sending special cards and letters to keep the connection strong, and might even be tempted to write poems or stories based upon your experiences of love. Maintaining a mental connection with your lover will always be important. You can also close the door to your heart by allowing feelings of imperfection or inferiority to get in your own way. Take a personal inventory (that should be easy for you!), and oil those rusty hinges on the doors to your heart. Allow yourself to play a bit more. Your sensuality can be a lot of fun when you let it out.
Venus feels good in your 5th House. This energy stimulates the expression of your feelings of love, and is quite helpful in opening your heart. Giving of yourself, your creativity and your energy allows you to take love to a higher level. You may be very attracted to a lover whose artistic tastes and sensibilities are compatible with your own, and may fall in love with his creativity as much as you fall in love with him. You'll appreciate a lover who acknowledges and supports your own creativity, and may lose interest if he is too self-absorbed.
Neptune's energy in your 5th House encourages you to spend a lot of time dreaming about the perfect love. Reverie and fantasy can be healthy, and in the best situations your intimate relationships will allow plenty of time for you to indulge in playful fantasy and high-level romance. Be alert to the possibility of falling in love with love, or with the things you wish to see in others, and try to take off your rose colored glasses from time to time. Make time in your life for giving of yourself, whether through charitable ventures, in community service or through your creative or artistic self-expression. And avoid the temptation of looking for a love that will rescue you from a life that does not fit your dreams.
The 7th House of your chart illustrates what you're seeking from a partner. More importantly, this part of your chart also tells a story about the kind of partner you really want to become. This is also the realm of social contact, and provides information about your approach to socialization. Although marriage agreements are shown through the 7th House, planets here (or a lack of planets here) do not "promise" marriage or its lack. But if your 7th House is highly activated, you may be more motivated to find a partner.
Since you have Sagittarius influencing your 7th House, you need lots of freedom within your partnership or marriage. Any partner who tries to hold you back will only be frustrated, so he may as well give you the independence you require or he won't have you at all. You may also attract highly independent men, and in order to have the trust and understanding required to sustain a partnership, need to clarify what you expect from one another. You'll appreciate a man who is an excellent companion and enjoys traveling down the road of life with you, although you may each take your own personal journeys from time to time. During the periods in which you connect, you need to plan, talk and envision your future goals and desires. Since Jupiter's energy is influential in this area, you can gain excellent support through a partnership when you're participating together in something that will allow you to feel that you're heading toward a brighter future.
Asserting yourself within your partnership can be a challenging and exciting experience, but you can also experience a great deal of frustration if you are uncomfortable with your self-assertiveness. With Mars in your 7th House, you're most attracted to men who are, themselves, strong, assertive or competitive. As a result, power struggles can arise. Just trying to avoid them will do little good. You need people in your life who enjoy a challenge every now and them, and may channel much of this energy into partnerships. Finding positive outlets for your competitive edge can be fun - games, sports or other recreational activities can smooth rough edges and still keep your juices pumping. Sometimes, arguments are simply the result of pent-up hostility which could be released through some type of physical activity. Men may accuse you of trying to take charge too much of the time if you are expressing your own assertiveness. For this reason, developing techniques which allow you to assert yourself with confidence will help you get past any hostility you may encounter. Just watch for reactions to help you gauge your next move, and go girl!
It is through the 11th House that you learn about unconditional relationships, and where you open to receiving love and support from others. Here you find your friends, your supportive professional allies, and your community. Through this facet of yourself you develop your special interests. And here you set your goals for the future. It's wonderful the way friends can support your aims, provide feedback when you need objectivity, and comfort you when you're facing challenges. Your approach to friendship is also seen through this part of your chart.
You have Pisces on the cusp of your 11th House, signifying that your friendships can have a spiritual and deep-seated emotional bond. Those who share your beliefs and ideals will be readily invited into your circle, and you may have lifelong friends whose history parallels your own. Compassionate understanding is the tie that binds when it comes to your friends, but you can also get into trouble if you fail to maintain your emotional boundaries with your friends. If you feel that a friend is taking unfair advantage of you, examine the part you play in that situation. You may need to clearly define when you are and are not available to them. Neptune's influence in this house adds a special psychic connection to your close friends. This energy enhances your ability to forgive your friends, too. It's probably a good idea to be very careful when you're making business agreements with friends, since it would be difficult for you to draw the line between business and friendship. If at all possible, try to avoid linking the two. Overall, it is through your friendships that you develop your most compassionate links to your heart. These relationships teach you how to open to receiving love. For you to open your heart to let love in, you may first need to forgive yourself and let go of the past.
With the energy of your Moon in your 11th House, you probably have many acquaintances and a few very special friends. Your women friends are especially important in your life, and you need their support and care and feel that it's necessary for you to provide the same for them. You have powerful emotional ties to your friends. This energy definitely draws what you send out. If you're feeling unsupported or that your friend has taken advantage of you, try to clarify the part you have played in that process. You're quite willing to flow with the changes friendships must endure, and can stay close and supportive to your good friend regardless of her ups and downs. The wisdom of knowing that friendships have their own cycles is part of your deeper understanding of life, and you may also discover that those cycles are directly related to your own changing needs.
Power Issues: Sex, Money and Control
Personal power is an individual expression, and has different meanings for each person. As a woman in the world today, your opportunity to experience and express your personal power is largely dependent upon the manner in which you develop it. Particularly in the Western World, as times have changed and the power base has gradually evolved beyond the patriarchal control of the last centuries, women are seeking to define their place in the world: collectively and individually. Gaining influence in the world through career and financial development, you begin to understand the different levels of power. Within the family, your roles are also evolving. You are also more free to express your sexual needs and desires, and demand that you are respected as a person and not sexually abused. But everything stems from your ability to identify, embrace and assimilate the true nature of your power as an individual woman.
On a personal level, you can begin to identify much about your own power by looking deeply into the meaning of your 1st House: Your Personality Self. Early in your report you read about what you project about yourself as identified by your Ascendant. Your first House further defines that projection of the Self, and is an area where you carve out much about the way you show yourself to the world on your own terms.
Through your Gemini Ascendant you show the face of the eternal questioner, always eager to discover something new in the world around you. Your power emerges through your ability to communicate effectively with others. By developing your mind and increasing your understanding, you may become an important link in the evolution of human thought. But you are distractible, and it is that tendency to get off track which can undermine your power. Instead of developing your understanding, you can wade in the shallows of simplicity, glancing across the surface and never penetrating the depths of wisdom. The power of the present moment holds many opportunities for you, especially when your mind is focused and connected to the here and now. From this point, you can create endless possibilities for your personal growth, which will be further enhanced through mental clarity and awareness of the world around you.
Since you do not have planets in your 1st House your personality expression may not be overpowered by the drive of a particular energy. The qualities associated with the sign on this house cusp, explained above, since through as the primary manner in which you want to be seen by the world.
Another power space on your chart is your Midheaven. This point, which is usually at the top of your chart and marks the cusp of the 10th House, is like the crown and torch of the Statue of Liberty. Here too, are the indicators of the types of people you most admire, and the clues to what you need to develop within yourself to attain unshakable self-respect.
Through your Aquarius Midheaven you are well aware of the importance of a group-oriented power base. However, this power in numbers works only if you are affiliated with those whose views and ideals reflect and strengthen your own. You admire those whose efforts are dedicated to the principles of liberty and universality. Work for the collective or humanitarian service can encourage your rise to prominence and influence.
Your sense of security with yourself plays a valuable role in achieving your ambitions with your Moon in sextile aspect to your Midheaven. In addition you will be most successful in the world when you feel good about what you're doing. Finding a life work which fills your soul not only supports your personal growth but also touches the lives of others in a positive manner.
Mercury's opposition to your Midheaven can underscore a sense of mistrust of your own intellectual abilities, or you may be caught in life experiences which have made it difficult to complete your education or accomplish the learning you need. Maintaining your focus on your long range goals is important, and choosing opportunities which allow you to continue to develop your mind or enhance your skills will stimulate greater success and strengthen your sense of personal power.
You may attract fortunate opportunities to rise to positions of prominence with Venus in trine aspect to your Midheaven. But you may not always cultivate those opportunities. The choice is yours. Whether you're developing your artistry as a means of making your place in the world or in business, you can be quite successful but feel most powerful when you put effort behind your opportunities. You can also be quite influential in aiding others along their paths and may feel better about opening doors for someone else than running headlong into the spotlight yourself.
Someone once said that money makes the world go around, and from all evidence, it certainly seems to be a powerful force. Money, in fact, symbolizes power. With money, you can have what you want. With more money, you can have more of what you want. Without money, you may want what you cannot have. Your relationship with money is an extremely intimate and seductive force. The way you use your resources - money, time, energy - says a lot about how you perceive your own power and personal worth. This facet of yourself is expressed through the 2nd House of your chart. Here, you express your value systems. The important special link between finances and self-esteem cannot be understated, and is especially important for you as a woman. In order to extract the real value of your talents and services from others in the world (such as what you are paid from your job), you must first value yourself.
The qualities of Cancer radiate through your 2nd House, indicating that you take a protective approach to handling your finances and personal resources. Your emotional attitudes about material things plays an important role in your values, and you may find that you hang onto some things simply out of sentimentality - including your deeply ingrained attitudes about money. If you've been taught that money is the root of all evil, you may find it quite difficult to abandon that attitude and allow yourself to feel good about financial success. When you stop to evaluate your own need for material security, you'll find that establishing a solid financial base is an important step toward strengthening your worth on many levels. The energy of your Moon plays a major role in your approach to finances, and you need to recognize the cyclical nature of the economy if you are to deal with it effectively. You may even work well in a profession which is cyclical in its production and demand or can be successful in areas which rely on time-honored resources, like real estate, antiques, or the food industry. Since you may feel drawn to use your resources, including time money and energy, to assist others, it would make sense that you'll be more effective when you know how to attract, develop and positively maintain your own.
With Jupiter in your 2nd House you have a great deal of confidence in your ability to attract and use your money, time and energy. Your optimism can be contagious, and when you've found something that makes you feel good, you may want to share what you've learned with others. For this reason, you're a natural in sales, teaching, advertising or investing. Since you probably like to travel, you may either use your resources toward traveling, or may find that work which involves travel is rewarding. The downfall of this placement is your tendency toward extravagance, since setting limits is quite difficult.
Resources which you share with others are reflected in the 8th House of your chart. Whether you're considering joint property and finances, inheritance, insurance settlements or tax obligations, this area is not as free and easy as the 2nd House, which seems more like what you want for yourself alone. Another layer of this part of your life deals with your sexuality, and the manner in which you open intimately to others. This is a very personal space, and it is probably one of the most guarded aspects of any woman's psyche. It is here that much wounding has taken place over many centuries, and it is here that the mask of propriety has to be removed in order to openly accept and integrate that fact that you are a person who needs wholeness and healing, and who yearns to bond at the most alchemical level with life itself.
Here you also find your compulsions. It's no wonder that you don't display this part of yourself to just anybody. You have to feel safe to open this facet of yourself, and you realize that this vulnerability can be used against you in power plays. But what you may not always remember is that this is also where you have the power! In true tantric traditions, it is through the vessel of a woman's sexual energy that a couple can ride the wave of sexual ecstasy. This also extends to the other power aspects of any relationship. If your transformational and magical qualities are blocked, the whole of the relationship will suffer.
Your approach to sexual intimacy may be quite cautious due to the influence of Capricorn on your 8th House. Although you may enjoy the games of love, when it gets to intimacy, you're not entirely footloose and fancy free. Before you achieve real intimacy, you need to establish trust and mutual respect. Otherwise you may never fully open your heart and soul to the relationship. You can be quite sensual, and will find it easier to experience the levels of sexuality which transport you into ecstasy when you indulge your sensual side. Once you've made an emotional commitment in a relationship, you may not relinquish it easily, so it's very important that you make choices for reasons which fit your deeper needs. You need to be careful of your tendency to be attracted to someone for the things or financial security he can provide. If this is your basis for getting together, you may ultimately feel trapped by the relationship.
Since you have no planets in the 8th House you may not be obsessed with too many problems or hassles with the issues of this area in your life. But you may not get off free on this one, either. Study the sign on the cusp of this house and read everything noted about the planet associated with that sign, because this is the energy tied up with your emotional attachments!
Mars energy is about getting what you want by going after it. Mars is drive. Mars is courage. Mars is desire. Mars is unabashed sexuality. Mars is the fuel for personal power. Men do Mars quite effectively, right down to fighting and war. But you also have a warrior spirit, an Amazon Self. This is your Mars. If you fail to own and utilize your own Martian force, you lose power.
Your confidence and enthusiasm are your power sources with Mars in Sagittarius. When you have your aim set on something, your self-assurance helps you achieve it. Staying physically active helps you maintain your power, and you'll appreciate a man whose love of adventure and travel are equal to your own. You lose power when you feel too hemmed in, whether by the expectations of others or by situations which limit your options. But you can also undermine your own strength by running away before you've had a chance to explore the fullest possibilities of your current situation! You can be quite sensual, and may enjoy a sexual relationship which leaves ample room for playful exploration of the many frontiers you and your partner possess. Your downfall in sexual relationships arises when you jump in before you've had a chance to think about what you're doing. Learning to consider the effects of your actions will be highly empowering!
The cooperative sextile aspect between Saturn and Mars indicates that you can be effective in controlling your own life. Your ability to respect the limitations of others and to honor your own is part of this self-direction, but so is your ability to take charge when necessary. You probably like being in positions of power, and can be a very effective leader or executive. Dealing with authorities is reasonably easy for you, too, although you still may have your qualms about whether or not some people in power really deserve to be there!
With Mars and Pluto in a trine aspect you may have an excellent ability to bring about transformational change through directing your personal dominion in positive ways. This is an aspect of magical strength and power, but only works if you consciously work to develop it. Your sexuality can be one of your gifts and the way you use your personal magnetism can dictate the difference between success and failure in every arena of your life. You need a place to exercise your magnetism in creative ways.The cooperative sextile aspect between Saturn and Mars indicates that you can be effective in controlling your own life.

Saturn plays the role of the big controller in your life. Sometimes that control seems to come from outside. You know - all the rules and regulations, the authority figures, the intimidating people who tell you what to do - this is the Saturn of the outside world. But you have the same traffic cop in the back of your own mind, telling you what is right and wrong, chiding you when you make a mistake, holding you back when you're about to do something stupid. Saturn control can be a good thing. This is your energy for self-discipline, clarity and focus. You need Saturn. But you need Saturn in its most productive sense. You do not need the guilt, intimidation and self-limitation that keep you from having what you require from life.
You are learning about the power of ultimate life experiences with Saturn in Scorpio. Although you can be very controlling, you may also attract people who test your self-control and whose emotional impact in your life tests the line between love and hate. You can be an extremist, and if you allow your energy to swing too far in one direction, the drain of energy required to bring everything back into balance can drain your power. You need to experience what it's like to exercise power over your own life, and may fight bitterly with anyone who tries to get in the way of decisions which involve your personal sanctity - decisions over such things as reproduction, medical care, choices about death. Before you can deal with these things effectively, you have to know how you feel and what drives you in these matters. Just giving in to your fears, guilt or shame in these areas will quickly drain your vital force, and leave you open to the control of others. You are faced with learning the difference between destructive uses of power and healing transformation.

Plutonian control is sometimes difficult to grasp, but it's definitely there. When you feel this control from outside yourself, it is undermining and extremely intimidating. The force of Pluto is buried deep within your psyche. It is unleashed and grows in a manner like the process of mitosis in a fertilized cell, which is altered, splits off, combines with other cells and ultimately becomes an organism. Through Pluto, you experience the power of life, birth, healing, and the ultimate change of death. If you are trapped in a mire of shame, guilt and self-destructiveness, you may have undergone a Plutonian transformation as a result of trauma earlier in your life. But it is this same force which plants the seeds of change that eventually can lead to the creation of a new self.
You learned about power from your parents and may have felt that one parent had a very strong hold on your life. They still may. But all the while, you may have found yourself resisting their control, or trying to undermine it. You tested limits. You knew just how far to push without getting the rug pulled from beneath your feet. Or did you? Now that you have grown to be a woman, you may have difficulty feeling that your foundation is ever stable enough. You know deep within yourself that you needed to destroy the unfitting or unfair images you had of your family, their traditions or their false identities. You may also feel some guilt that you cannot fully identify. This is the guilt your soul recalls. It may not be entirely your own. It may be something you felt as early as the time you spend in your mother's womb. It might be something from another lifetime that you remember at a cellular level, a feeling that haunts you when you are alone. Let it go. Find yourself. Step into your power and allow yourself to be healed. Then, and only then, will you finally feel that you've found home.
Embracing Your Divine Self
In western society today it's okay to admit that women are Goddesses. This, in itself, implies that the power of The Source may not be solely masculine. In essence, this power contains All That Is, but as a woman, you express it through your Goddess Self. This part of yourself is always there when you feel abandoned or alone to give you comfort. Your Goddess Self is standing firmly beside you when you face a major challenge, sharing her strength and support. Your Goddess Self opens the doors to Truth and Understanding. She is the essence of all that is Love. Look in the mirror. Stare deeply into your own eyes and you will see her reflected back at you.
When you need to get in touch with your inner being, an exercise in guided imagery can help you make the transition from your everyday thinking to heightened awareness. Take a few minutes to make this journey. Before you begin, find time to be alone. Sit or lie down in a comfortable position in a place that feels safe to you. Take three deep breaths. With each breath, release the tension from your body as you exhale. As you inhale, fill yourself with energy, light and inner calm. Then, close your eyes, and take one more relaxing breath.
Imagine that you are in a place surrounded by magnificent mountains. You are prepared to make the ascent to the mountain top, and have the confidence, ability and courage to reach the peak. As you make the climb, feel yourself becoming more light and free. The trees are like old friends, and the rocks that support your feet are safe and secure. As you near the top of the mountain, you are filled with a sense of elation. Once you are standing at the peak, you see a small stone temple before you. It is surrounded by translucent light. Walking up the stairway to the temple, you realize you are transported into a sacred space. The structure looms much larger as you near its portal. Standing at the door is a beautiful warrior princess who gestures for you to follow her. She is magnificent, dressed in bright colors, with a headdress of fine jewels and iridescent feathers. With her, she carries a shield, which is fashioned of many things from the earth, painted with interesting symbols. She leads you to a place which seems to be in a new dimension. There, you are invited into a circle dance, where you dance with others who are merging their power with The Source. You feel completely energized. As the dance ends, your guide directs you to walk through a brilliant fire. As you pass through the flames, you realize that you are absolutely safe. Emerging from the flames, you are given a shield which is engraved with a special symbol. Your experience in this sacred space reminds you that you are always protected, and that there is always a source of power waiting to recharge your energy and vitality.
