She tends to work hard and play little. As a result, she may go through periods when she feels left out and prematurely aged. She may rebel at long last and perhaps experience a selfish Aries or Leo phase or a playful Sagittarius phase. She needs the buoyancy of the fire types and their inherent leaning toward self-confidence. The Virgo Woman seems to have been born with the shakiest self-esteem of all. She seems destined for a life of labor, for years of doing more than her share and being appreciated less. She husbands her resources carefully, is adaptive, and at all costs wishes to avoid dependence in old age. She tends to overprepare. She has to work very hard to allow her need for pleasure and love to unfold into fulfillment. One symptom of low self-esteem is self-denial. The Virgo Woman many times over-extends herself and then refuses to accept her due seldom does she take as much as she gives.

She is sometimes devious and often deceptive, retiring and yet an opportunist. Because she is attuned to people and can almost predict events, she can be extremely successful.

The Leo Woman's vocational self-esteem, especially in early adulthood, may be more solid than her self-reliance in personal affairs. Despite all she usually has going for her, she tends to suffer from insecurity of the sort common among women whose identity is strongly dependent on their status as a professional beauty or sex symbol. As long as she feels loved, beautiful, or much sought-after, the young Leo Woman may feel fairly secure. If and when the attention fades and love disappoints, she may suffer an identity crisis and this more than once. As she matures and understands that self-esteem comes more from a feeling of inner beauty than from adulation, she can change. She has the basic strength and stability to learn, survive, and love again.
The Cosmic Woman is not a product of her environment, but a product of inner growth. She has overcome the narrow bounds of society and become universal in the process. She loves herself, and this enables her to express her emotions and her feelings freely in any situation or circumstance. Her self-love seems to generate loving energy that flows from her even in moments of anger. The Cosmic Woman has Love Yourself Day every day she long ago realized the importance of displaying an attitude of self-love. Her approach is indeed infectious she feels that the more she demonstrates the advantages of self-actualization, the greater are the chances of others pursuing it as a goal. Above all, the Cosmic Woman knows that she alone is responsible for her life, her happiness, her peace of mind.
By adolescence, the Taurus girl is usually well-adjusted and able to handle her own life quite well. There is an element of self-love and self-preservation in her makeup that keeps her self-esteem high. As the woman emerges, she comes to cherish her body and the pleasures it can bring to her. Although it may take her awhile to develop a self-image she finds acceptable, she constantly tries to improve on what nature gave. She will exercise and diet to keep her body in shape.
Wherever Aries is placed in the blueprint is where the soul initiates its activity and begins to operate in the world of appearance. For Pisces, values and resources are of utmost importance. Not only must he feel successful in financial matters, but the uses of his personal resources are very important as well. There is great ambition to achieve. Capricornians want to achieve worldly success for the power it brings. Not so Pisces I He needs to achieve success in order to prove his own worth to himself. A deep-seated inferiority complex is behind his drive for significance. He is the one who is never satisfied, no matter how well he does or how successful he is. He is much harder on himself than he is on other people. With Mars as ruler of the second house, Pisces finds It difficult to hold on to money. Wherever Mars is ruler in a house, there is need for control. In this house there is a need to curb the tendency to extravagance. Mars hates to stop and think. It would much rather act...
While Jupiter represents your expansive side, Saturn's all about responsibility, rules, and regulations. Your Saturn is concerned with self-discipline and self-respect, your lessons, duties, and limitations, and also represents the authority figures in your life. Later in life, it also represents your own authority.
Your second house is where you develop your values, resources, and self-esteem, and so the sign on your second-house cusp will describe their characteristics. Your second-house ruler describes where and how you develop them. The house where the corresponding natural sign of Taurus is shows what area your values, resources, and self-esteem are tied to and where you use them to achieve the results you want. The planets in the Second House give clues to all of these things values, resources, and self-esteem.
Poor self-esteem may lead you to try to substitute material things for a feeling of self-worth. If there are challenging factors related to the Second House, you may believe that material possessions can be substituted for inner self-worth. Or, you may not feel worthy of having sufficient or plenty of money, and so manage to prevent that from happening. For that reason, it's important to truly value yourself. You aren't what you own
Because of your leadership ability, self-reliance and trustworthiness, this position is excellent for success in business and or politics. You have many opportunit s to advance. Socially, you are very active. Your strong sense of justice indicates that you would do well in law. Your moral standards are high. You are proud, materialistic and ambitious recognition comes early in life. With difficult aspects, you can be arrogant and overbearing.
Because you are unable to recognize your limitations, you plod steadily forward in the face of adversity. Success comes late in life, and sometimes you feel that you never get true recognition. Although you are materialistic and conscientious, you lack direction and drive. You must recognize your own self-worth and stop comparing yourself unfavorably to others. You may experience danger from some natural disaster such as flood, earthquake or epidemic.
Twelfth-house Saturn is reserved and cautious, preferring to work alone. This placement can be lonely or afraid, especially because these people won't share their feelings with others for fear they'll be used against them. But this also can be a very good placement for those who require seclusion for their work. This placement may have unconscious, or what seem to be unfounded, fears about their own worth or about the structures of their world dissolving before them. Normally these fears are either imaginary or linked to past life memories. It's often wise for these people to develop practical ways to help others, which they are talented at doing and which help them get past focusing on their fears and insecurities. This placement is often found in people who work in large companies, institutions, or for the government. They also may work for charitable foundations or in psychology.
The Dog dilemma in all career areas will be balancing ongoing conflicts between self-confidence and self-doubt. The Dog must be able to believe in what they are doing and feel committed to a mission or goal if they are to give the best of themselves. This makes them particularly well suited for humanitarian professions and social work.
Number 1 is independent, pioneering, and headstrong and rules beginnings It is the Aries energy. A number 1 person has a purpose, wants results, and is impatient to get on with it. Number 1s meet challenges with courage and self-reliance and often have strong opinions. They are determined initiative takers. In fact, if you're around a 1, you might just have to get out of the way Number 1s like to have their own way
As a woman, she is bound to encounter job discrimination. This will particularly fuel her anger, because Capricorn often derives much of her sense of self-esteem from aspiring toward and realizing professional goals. If she does not work for pay, she is almost surely striving for leadership in volunteer work, community causes, or the family.
For the Pisces Woman who chooses to be upwardly mobile, apathy can be corrected by involvement in an outside cause. She can clarify her situation by setting clear, realistic short- and long-term goals. She must then persist in reaching them. The Pisces Woman may choose self-realization or self-denial. Whether she is on her way up or slipping, she sprays life with a rainbow-colored mist. Judy Garland was a Pisces type. Her life is a good example of the Pisces Woman's complexity and polarization. In it we find extremes of achievement and degradation, self-sacrifice and self-indulgence. She was addicted as much to failed relationships as to drugs. Her problems stemmed from miserably low self-esteem. As a practical measure, she needs to create environments that promote a sunny, cheerful attitude. Colors, textures, music, flowers the entire decor should be arranged so as to increase her self-esteem and energy.
As the negative Moon or the negative side of the Moon, the mind, Rahu represents illusion, hallucination, trance, psychosis, paranoia and other such negative mental states. As the negative Sun or the negative side of the Sun, the self, Ketu represents self-doubt, lack of self-confidence, lack of self-worth, which can lead to self-aggrandizement, or, ultimately megalomania. It represents negative states of the Self.
If Saturn is close to the Ascendant the birth has been a difficult one the soul was reluctant to come in. This knowledge helps one to rectify timing. In every case of Saturn in the first house close to the Ascendant the birth is difficult for the mother. This position of Saturn gives early maturity the person is born old and gets younger in attitude as he grows older. Shy and introverted. Makes an early start in life. Needs to cultivate self confidence and a sense of their own worth as an individual Has fear that has to be overcome. Ability to work hard and through determination, persistence and self-control can achieve success in life. Early life austere and disciplined and not apt to have a feeling of being loved in the early part of life. There can be a great deal of selfishness and self-centeredness if Saturn is poorly placed by sign or aspects.
The imagination can be considerably stimulated by this placing. If either Gemini or Virgo is emphasized by Sun, Moon, or Ascendant, the influence is helpful and strong. It can also give the potential for writing or craftwork. Neptune from this sign tends to sap self-confidence, and this should always be carefully considered, in spite of it being just a generation influence.
The tenth house is an extremely important one as it reveals your self-esteem and your reputation in the community. Virgo is inclined to hold back a little, so you may sometimes be too modest or self-effacing. You may need to push yourself forward a little more to make sure that you get the full credit that you deserve. It also shows that you will always have an excellent reputation.
It is not expected that the people of the world should relate to the mythological content of Western culture, nor should they. Astrologers of India, China, and other societies have their own astrological symbols and archetypal patterns that reflect their view of reality. Yet what is universal to all things on the planet is easily understood through philosophical and mystical insight based on the sun-planet system. How this knowledge is understood will be based on the heritage, cultural values, and national self-image of those that accept it.
Astrology can help people to have a greater confidence in themselves by confirming the intimations, feelings, and inner knowledge that they may have been afraid to express or to trust. Rather than the often-voiced criticism of astrology that it makes one weaker by depending on forces outside the self, the proper use of astrology can help an individual to develop a greater degree of self-reliance and self-confidence. So often, a person feels deeply that he has special abilities in a certain area, for example, but the lack of confidence or trust in self may make it difficult to act upon this feeling.
With a second-house Pluto, you have a strong survival instinct and need to develop self-reliance and self-sufficiency. Your primary identity may be focused on either 1) your sense of values, including power and possessions, or 2) your abilities, talents, and resources for earning an income. In all cases, your soul's evolutionary intent is to grow beyond the limitations of the way you've identified your self-sustenance by merging your resources, talents, or possessions with others. For example, if you've been equating material gain with self-worth or self-sustainment, you'll need to reassess this and learn about the deeper aspects of life. If, on the other hand, you're focused on your talents, earning abilities, or spiritual values, then you'll need to learn how to tie them to a social need in order to support yourself. You can be stubborn, defensive, or even lazy, but you also possess stability and inner strength, which you can use to promote self-reliance in others.
Capricorn in the ascendant provides an ambitious, persevering plodding, and persistent disposition. Fate is determined by the moral growth and the power to organize and rise above the difficulties of the early environment. The native is basically reserved, firm and self-reliant and anxious to be at the head of affairs. The Capricorn influence provides the native with tremendous potential for tact, prudence, and progress both financially and socially. The 3rd decan of Capricorn ascending modifies the self-reliance of the sign but strengthens intellectual and mental qualifications. If the native can manage to obtain a good education the indications are that he will become a useful and important member of society. Circumstance will dictate the life of the native, much more than the ability to rule his own destiny.
Here is self satisfaction. Where Venus loves she is apt to do much for the loved one, but in this position she is apt to love herself through the loved one. A tendency to touchiness and is apt to be easily offended due to self love. Apt to be inconsiderate of others without realizing it This is a love springing into activity with ardor and enthusasm, but not a sustaining and nurturing kind of caring. Passion and aggressiveness can be strong, thus Venus may lose her sweetness in this sign. The lesson needed with this placement is the ability to put oneself in the other fellow's shoes. In spite of an impulsive approach to love, Venus in Aries is idealistic, and is always seeking outwardly that which can only be found within There is a tendency to lack stability for Venus can tire quickly and change her mind often in the impulsive, restless sign of Aries.
Saturn in Aries is weak and therefore unable to express his best qualities to their full and legitimate extent even if well-aspected. Nevertheless he gives a minor measure of poise, self-reliance, discretion and tact, industry, patience and perseverance. But when Saturn is afflicted in Aries the person is quickly angered and apt to hold spite, and also of a jealous, malicious, and vindictive disposition.
With Aries on thiB house, Taurus has an active subconscious life. He is seldom inwardly defeated unless he himself throws in the sponge. His destructive tendencies arise when anyone tries to teat- down his self-confidence. It is difficult to understand Taurus. The personal ego makes its start in the twelfth house of secrecy The motives of life and action are hidden from the beginning. Taurus may appear frank and open, but don't let that fool you. He is not as open as he appears. His feelings are strong, but suppressed. He has a fiery temper when aroused, is inclined to hold resentment, and is not apt to forget an injury. He feels misunderstood. He suffers from troubles he brings on himself, but it is hard for him to see this fact. The higher type is a leader of humanitarian movements, but he works from behind the scenes rather than out in front
When we begin to tap into the psychic levels of our being, perhaps under Neptune transits to our birth charts, it is a common temptation to want intensely dramatic, bigger-than-life connections to spirit guides to bolster self-esteem. I can't tell you how many people out there believe that they and they alone are channeling Princess Diana or Mother Theresa. You may very well be in contact with a spirit guide of some sort, but on the astral level, spirits can assume any form they like. We can also perceive them as anyone we want them to be, thus the strong capacity for deceiving ourselves or being deceived by beings on the astral level.
Although you may lack self-confidence and need a lot of solitude, you are able to integrate the subconscious part of your nature. Your life before thirty may be somewhat restricted. Some kind of work in institutions, charities, labor or research appeals to you, although you usually prefer to work behind the scenes. This is often the placement for actors, since actors can hide their real feelings by playing a role. If there are difficult aspects, you may be your own worst enemy you must learn to serve and should not let yourself wallow in self-pity. The Sun in the twelfth house operates like the Sun in Pisces this placement depends more on the total horoscope than any of the other Sun placements. Writer Zelda Fitzgerald, Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, newspaper publisher William Randolph Hearst, labor leader James Hoffa, TV personality Paul Lynde, comedian Jim Backus.
But beware of flattery, self-love, and covetousness, so wilt thou thrive and be diligent in thy occupation, so shall thy body be fed. Idleness is offensive to the Deity, industry shall sweeten thy brown bread, and the fruits of it shall warm thine heart, and inspire thy soul with gratitude to him that blesses thee with enough seek for no more, for it will damn thee pray for enough to feed and clothe thy body, but ask no more, lest thou pine away in heart-rending poverty, and spend the remainder of thy days in contumely and beggary. For know a thing most necessary for thee to know, that if by thy study, by thy art, or any other thing, thou couldst command a million of spirits, it should not be lawful for thee to wish to gain riches suddenly, for the Wisdom Eternal has put forth the fiat and it has been said by him who never spoke in vain, and who cannot lye, that man shall get bread by the sweat of his brow therefore let us not have in view the enriching of ourselves in worldly goods,...
This aspect indicates insecurity you work harder than most people to prove yourself. You must learn to handle your frustration, depression and discontentment, as well as your tendency to cling to the past. This usually indicates an unhappy early childhood perhaps there were disagreements with a domineering parent. Lack of self-confidence and a sense of martyrdom must be overcome before true maturity can be reached. You are likely to marry someone older and to have few children.
Enthusiasm, an intense love of travel, and a gambling instinct. There is, potentially, a brilliant mind which requires stimulation. Weight gain to hips and thighs is likely. SATURN Will sober the Ascendant characteristics. Often causes inhibition, lack of self-confidence, and bouts of depression. A conventional outlook, with determination and ambition. These individuals will take life seriously. The knees and shins are vulnerable. URANUS Here conflict occurs between the need for a conventional family life and personal freedom and self expression. Within the family unit, those with this placing tend to be different , with others making allowances for them. N E PTU N E An over-idealistic attitude towards home and family life is common, with individuals often deluding themselves as to what is going on. Love and affection will be present, and possibly problems with alcohol or drugs. PLUTO Frustration during childhood and youth is common here. perhaps parents have stopped these individuals...
However, the Sun in Vedic astrology is also regarded as a Sattvic or spiritual planet. This is quite different than the other malefics which are Tamasic, gross or unspiritual, in quality. Hence in this sense of quality, the Sun is a good planet and gives high values like self-esteem, integrity and independence. One such action which is spiritually beneficially but materially malefic, it can help separate us from material abundance and worldly happiness and cause to seek self-knowledge. Much of the western sense of the Sun as a benefic can be understood in the eastern sense of the Sun as a spiritual or Sattvic planet.
The key here is breadth of vision - absorbing the big picture in situations and projects - even though Virgo is actually the sign of detail and the close examination of facts. If those with this placing are aware of this conflict, it is possible to make it work extremely well, so that they attain the best of the two extremes. One thing is certain the mind will be brilliant, with a quick grasp of an intellectually demanding situation. Provided that Virgoan inhibition or lack of self-confidence does not block the flow of practical and lively thoughts and ideas, success is assured.
The mate or friend involved with the newly emerging Pisces Woman needs to support her search and her growth. He or she must accept the Piscean need to break some ties. It is essential to trust that her search will yield more self-esteem and that ultimately this will strengthen the relationship. The turmoil that accompanies the emergence of a new self is to be expected. But it is also possible, and desirable, for partners to respond to each other's needs, survive the turmoil, and grow from it.
If her lover comes to her less than liberated, she can show the way. She is a patient soul, and her tolerance is, at the very least, legendary. She can coach her lover to first be aware of self-satisfaction, self-confidence, and self-love, and then to magically expand the selves to include others. But she will not waste her time, her energies, or her feelings on a lover who cannot learn. She is not above making mistakes, and she may well find a lover who is totally incapable of feeling or, worse yet, incapable of wanting to feel. In this case she will be gone, without guilt, without remorse, and often without warning. But let that lover indicate to her that feeling and learning sexual expression is a priority, and she will tackle the sexual seminar with limitless hope and optimism.
Keynote developing self-confidence One of the primary lessons of being a Rising Lion is to learn to give up needing other people's approval, respect, and admiration. This usually doesn't happen until the person is able to choose self-approval and self-respect over that of other people. When it does happen, though, Rising Lions suddenly gain more respect and admiration from others than they had when they were trying to please others. Self-approval is the key to a Rising Lion. An ascendant Lion may help to develop self-confidence, because the outer person will be projecting self-confidence as a matter of course. After a while, this can become second nature, helping those less confident to overcome a lack of faith in themselves.
Jupiter in Leo gives a truly noble nature, blending kindness and courage, self-reliance and loyalty, self-restraint and compassion, mercy and justice. It indicates, in short, a paragon of virtues nowhere excelled. It gives an abundance of vitality and a strong constitution so that it marks a leader physically, morally and spiritually, nor will such a person ever be content to follow. He craves positions of trust and responsibility, the greater the better. He will always be equal to the occasion and never abuse the confidence of those who have placed him there. Such people have an innate culture and refinement. They are fond of everything that tends to the uplift of humanity, religious, sincere sure to win recognition and success dealing in speculative investments. When Jupiter is afflicted in Leo the person becomes cruel and sensuous, abnormally fond of pleasure and subject to loss by investments, speculation and gambling. Jupiter in Scorpio gives an ardent, aggressive and...
These aspects manifest in some very unusual, and sometimes dramatic, ways. There is a gnawing desire to change over one's identity in a radical way, and to rid oneself of all past encumbrances and conditioning. The urge to leave the past behind can be so strong that one changes one's name, symbolizing the desire to leave behind the old self-image. These people usually find it hard to be happy in the present since they are always powerfully aware of the impact of the past (the Moon) and the future (Uranus). The restlessness is often profound, since they Self-image blends with the attempt to realize the spiritual dimension of experience and is secure only when the ideals come into focus
POSITIVE ASPECT Increased determination and a driving energy force can be present in these individuals. There is also the ability to come to terms with psychological problems or phobias. NEGATIVE ASPECT Obsessive behavioural problems may occur at times. There is a tendency to say I can't be bothered , when lack of self-confidence is the real reason.
Fortunately, this is normally nothing more than a passing phase. She can snap out of it when she receives a gift, a bouquet of lovely flowers, or any little token of affection. A word of warning to Libra you can put so much energy into building an image and creating an association or an environment that you leave too little for self-nourishment. If you get depressed often, you should consider consulting a professional. Style is not a substitute for true self-esteem.
Because of her peculiar nervous system and her low self-esteem, the Virgo Woman tends to fret a great deal. She frequently attempts to guard herself against worry by organizing everything precisely. In this way she tries to eliminate the likelihood of confusion and the pressure of conflicting demands.
A sense of continuity is something that is appreciated by this zodiac group. If the experiences and qualifications gained at university can be put to good use from the outset of the career, it will make good sense to young Capricorns on the brink of their life in the adult world. They have a driving ambition, but lack of self-confidence often seriously hampers fulfilment, and so getting to the top remains a far-off dream for many. Self-belief comes hard, and in extreme cases personal development courses will be of great benefit.
Exacting, careful, efficient and reliable, you take your job seriously. You can excel in government work, writing or fields involving mathematics or science. You sometimes feel that you are indispensable and push yourself at the cost of your health. Chronic illness may plague you. Although you seem quiet and unsure of yourself, you do know your own worth. You must learn to blow your own horn and assert yourself. Your basic outlook is conservative, yet it is not necessarily reflected in your appearance or dress. With difficult aspects, you tend to worry and fret too much. Vice President Nelson Rockefeller, actor Bob Crane, composer Johannes Brahms, writer Thomas Mann.
She has the type of self-confidence many people envy. Nobody can mow her over she is never a helpless victim or a retiring wallflower. Though she has inherent humbleness and at times is quite shy, she can rise above these traits when necessary. She is often more confident in her work achievements than in her personal life. She hungers for recognition and awards that mean she has made it, for they alone provide her with the type of feedback that nurtures her self-esteem. Without the feeling of having done her duty she has little self-respect. She has a refined instinct for bartering, with herself and with those whose approval she needs. The deal she most often makes with herself is to work for the advancement of a cause that will better our species and to allow herself to have self-respect in return. She can barely exist without feeling worthwhile, and she needs a communal rather than an individual stamp of approval. She is victimized mainly by her own wish to suppress knowledge of...
Your first-house sign describes your self-image and how you express your identity, and its ruler describes where and how your identity and self-image are developed. The Aries house (the corresponding natural sign) shows another area of life that your identity is tied to, providing you with greater self-awareness.
Parents of very young Virgos will find their children talking much earlier than seems possible, and making themselves, and their wishes and protests, thoroughly understood. They will be somewhat shy during early nursery school days, and every effort must be made on the part of parents and teachers to boost self-confidence. Sometimes, grown-ups tend to tease children who appear shy. This is not a good idea with little Virgos, because their shyness is inherent support, encouragement, and absolutely no teasing are very important. It is equally unproductive if the child hears parents say, of course, you know she's shy. Such comments will only reinforce the tendency, and, more likely than not, Miss or Master Virgo will run out of the room and who's to blame them Once there is an element of self-confidence present, Virgo children are at a considerable advantage at day school. Not only will their exercise books, course work, and handwriting be neat and tidy, but they will take to computer...
They may find it difficult to fully express their feelings. POSITIVE ASPECT Here is common sense, determination, reliability, and thoroughness, with a conventional outlook on life. Success will come with discipline patience is also present. NEGATIVE ASPECT The outlook can become depressive and negative -often due to low self-confidence. The constitution is vulnerable additional vitamins and flu jabs are advisable before winter sets in.
Mars in the Ascendant, or First House, when well-aspected has a most beneficial influence upon the constitution, particularly if he is in one of the fiery signs, Aries, Leo or Sagittarius, or in the sign of his exaltation Capricorn, but sometimes when a weak sign like Cancer is rising and the other planets are much afflicted Mars in the Ascendant may infuse sufficient energy into the body to tide it over the critical period of infancy. This position also gives energy, ambition, courage, self-reliance and determination which are exceedingly helpful characteristics in winning the battle of life. It indicates an enterprising and practical person who will shun no effort in order to succeed. When Mars is afflicted in the First House he nevertheless strengthens the constitution and gives muscular power and endurance, but he makes such persons rash, impulsive, headstrong and foolhardy. Thus they neglect the ordinary precautions to guard their health and become subject to fevers and other...
You are good at analyzing other people's problems you are interested in the psychic realms, and your thinking can be secretive. Your mind is subtle, and you like to work in seclusion. At times you may have trouble expressing yourself. You lack self-confidence but hide your insecurity you need to guard against living in a dream world. You base your decisions on feelings rather than on reason. If your Mercury is close to the Ascendant it will take on a first house feeling, so you would be very communicative and less introverted. With difficult aspects you may have had reading problems as a child, or you might have had an extraordinary childhood perhaps you were raised in a foster home, orphanage or boarding school.
* Pluto is the ruler of sexuality, lust, obsessive desires, and the sex organs. (This overlaps in some ways with Mars, which symbolizes pure physical attraction, but there is a difference.) Pluto is also representative of power the establishment and things that enhance or preserve power, such as atomic energy and weapons, politics, great success, big business, corporations, and advertising. Pluto signifies dictatorships and oppression, as well as the state of being oppressive this leads to Pluto signifying the super ego and undeserved self-esteem. Pluto represents the ingredients of great wealth, such as investments, the banking industry, the loaning of money, the issuance of debt, and the ability to pay it back as well as most financial instruments, such as bonds and mortgages. It also represents gambling and betting, the trading of financial instruments of all types and profits therefrom. It provides the ability to take advantage of and capitalize on something in order to make a...
Fear has a way of eroding her self-confidence. She may develop phobias about snakes, spiders, or heights. Fear can block her personal and professional growth by destroying her already weak initiative. Fear makes her cling to the safe route and the known path. It is responsible for her almost legendary overprotection of her children and general smothering of people. If she has a genuine desire to make people comfortable, she usually has an equally real fear for their safety and happiness.
Good position if person doesn't build a superego into his personality. Pride is the great danger hue. Called the Napoleonic complex. A rise to the top followed by a fall This is only true when the person hasn't learned humility and built his foundation on secure ground. Can be social climber, and make money and prestige more important than service. Not an easy incarnation for it is a testing one. Power will be the test. Self-reliance and ambition strong. Good business ability. Apt to have trouble through dominant parent. Often lack of father image In life.
A tendency toward defensiveness and lack of self-confidence is very often a marked characteristic of these people. Even when they are not being criticized, they often think they are and thus are not open to hearing positive feedback about themselves. The childhood environment, especially in the case of the challenging aspects, was often oppressive, lonely, or otherwise burdensome.
From the standpoint of psychology, the first house is the house of the ego (ahamkara), the 'I am the body idea' or self-image upon which the ego is based. It is a crucial indicator not only for determining psychological health but also for career, relationship and general happiness, which are the main issues of the self in this world. The Ascendant and the influences upon it show,the ego and its projects in life.,
The Tiger plays for stakes and aims to win at the game of life. The competitive and self-assured Tiger seeks challenges and audience approval, and is fiercely independent. This fiercely self-reliant soul may appear gruff and tough on the outside, yet they are tenderhearted and affectionate toward those whom they love. The most harmonious time of each day for the Tiger is between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m. These are the predawn hours when the yang force grows, and during which the Tiger refuels their endless energy and unfailing self-confidence. Little distinction exists between the genders of this sign. Both are graced with a strong character and great powers of resistance. Whether male or female, their immense energy allows Tigers to undertake sizable projects.
If self-esteem is born of knowing what she wants and how to get it, she brims with it. For her, the problem is not so much to get what she desires as to choose and use constructive means of doing so. She is confident about her ability to dominate the forces of nature and to surmount obstacles. In truth, domination is a game to her, one she feels she was born to win. Tasks that require confidence and endurance challenge her. Because she is confident, persistent, thorough, and intuitive, she can be a capable engineer, physician, or military leader. She is a good manager. She likes to work, and she is usually good at it. The positive results reinforce her self-confidence, which in turn enables her to tackle new tasks with confidence. The more she does, the more confident she becomes. She short-circuits only when she turns to revenge or any other underhanded expression of unvented fear and anger. Scorpio's self-confidence is heightened by her psychic powers. She relies on them though our...
She makes a marvelous lover or mate as long as she feels loved and protected, but problems arise from the fact that she does not love herself enough. She may not, at first, attract men who support her. This situation can change, but it takes self-knowledge, self-esteem, time for change to occur.
9, Bind your friends'loyalty to you with strong ties be careful to keep your honesty uncorrupted in all your activities never stain your self-respect by becoming a false witness. Never ask interest on money lest you accumulate an increase in income from the needs of others. Do not give or take an oath, especially if it has to do with money, lest the divine protection of the gods appear to be asked by you for money.
A major block to healthy sexual expression is anger, which is connected to low self-esteem and the feeling of being ineffectual. The struggle for self-esteem and a sense of importance as a person is a basic human concern. Sexuality in an angry relationship is not a source of pleasure, nor is it a basis on which a couple can share growth and build mutual respect. Repressed or improperly expressed anger is destructive to self-esteem and to relationships. Anger properly communicated and directed can be a powerful motivating force, an agent of change, and a personal resource. In order to demilitarize her anger, she must recognize those situations where she needs to get angry to gain energy to change an old situation, to shore up the courage to be honest, to be heard by someone who normally ignores what she has to say. Choosing to be angry is a pragmatic policy that builds self-respect through the awareness that a choice has been made. The Aries Woman must recognize that as long as she...
She may go off on sex hunts to prove herself. She may disclose her infidelity to her husband at a later date, ostensibly in the name of honest communication. Usually, her real aim is to spite him. This is a poor strategy in which sex and anger are simultaneously misused. In the best circumstances, these incidents can serve to open up feelings and to galvanize the partners to take necessary action.
The dreamer of the zodiac, you are compassionate, tolerant, kind and loving. You are easily influenced by others because you don't want to hurt anyone. It is hard for you to make decisions and you need to overcome your desire to escape from anything that is difficult. Creative, spiritual and often mystical, at times you can be indolent and impractical. You may seem to lack self-confidence, but in your own quiet way you accomplish a great deal. Charming and likeable, you are good to those in distress and are fond of animals. Pisces, more than any other sign, will draw its strength or weakness from the rest of the horoscope.
In terms of family relationships, the Sun represents the father. We can read through it the life of our father, our relationship to him and his influence upon us. It is the role of the father to shape our sense of self, to provide us with direction and self-worth in life. It is the absence, weakness or failure of the father in modern culture that is behind the many ego, identity and self-image problems so many of us today possess. The son needs a beneficent father to give him a sense of self-strength, self-mastery and capacity to function capably in the world. The daughter needs a good father to give her the sense of self-worth, integrity and the capacity to be her self in the world. We can judge this by the Sun in the chart.
The first woman may or may not know when she's angry, but she has found an automatic release. She just turns on the faucet, in her words. She added that crying has been effective in relieving her tensions and that it produces results. Crying, for this Cancer woman, is a good way to cope with anger, as it diminishes neither her self-confidence nor her stature with others. Of course, if she resorted to this tactic in a work situation, it could be extremely destructive crying from anger can paint a picture of helplessness and irrationality.
They have self-confidence, seek advancement and direct their energy towards their goals in a powerful way. Many of our leaders, bosses and entertainers are of this type. Cardinal types need to cultivate more sensitivity, doubt, hesitation, introversion and develop more consistency and stability. They need to make sure that what they are directing their energy towards reflects their deepest will and aspiration and not get caught in action for its own sake. If they do this their capacity for inner development in life can also be very high.
Interpreting an A*C*G map is easy Since being angular enhances the expression of a planet's nature in the personality, affairs symbolized by the planet can be expected to be more prominent in the life of an individual who travels through or resides under an SU ASC line on such a map. By moving to a locality under an SU ASC line on one's A*C*G map, an individual can expect more self-confidence, theatricality, creativity, and leadership to manifest.
The Cancer Woman is apt to be highly family-oriented, to want and need family love in her life. At the same time, she is able to use sex simply as a source of pleasure, and she leads an alternative or secret life more often than appearances might suggest. She has some hedonistic tendencies, and they conflict with, but are not always checked by, her self-image as a good mother and wife. Still, the Cancer Woman is apt to be inherently loyal above all to her brood. She may not be sexually faithful to her husband, but if there is such a thing as monogamy with a family (nothing is more important to her), then we can say she is almost always monogamous.
People with planets in the Second House tend to have overwhelming desires to prove their self worth they may need to establish themselves as reputable to the rest of society by building big houses, getting degrees, establishing businesses, making millions, etc. Such obsessions with making something of themselves will, of course, place great strain on their bodies. For example, they may work 16 hours a day to achieve their goals, in the process neglecting to eat or developing poor eating habits.
They seem to have brought the economy of Cancer to a kind of perfection, and they know how to be frugal and thrifty without being mean when fully individualised they are very contemplative, reserved, deep and profound. They are always independent characters, possessing quiet self-reliance and steady determination, and when living up to their highest ideal are the true servants of humanity but when not awakened, and living to the personal side of their nature, they pass through the opposite extremes of all these virtues. They are always more or less self-conscious, and seem to know the state of consciousness they are in more readily than those born in the other signs. When personal tbey are melancholic, doubtful and sceptical, and inclined to be very indifferent and perverse and when working on the lower levels they are constantly repining and expressing a heavy, morose, cold and distant nature, their despondency and gloom carrying them into an obscurity that is painful to themselves...
They should not get bogged down in the minute details of problems, but apply logic and common sense to keep the difficulty in perspective, and not allow it to mar their output or performance. They need to be kept busy, and if they are out of work, they should set themselves a schedule and keep to it. If they have been made redundant or dismissed, their self-esteem will have had a severe blow and
The Moon is in its detriment in Capricorn, in opposition to warm, nurturing Cancer. This lunar position emphasizes reserve and coldness. You are shy and insecure about your own worth you have many subconscious fears, and you can be oversensitive to real or fancied slights. You seek to justify yourself by acting with personal dignity and by your great ambition to succeed. Thus you are neither truly sympathetic nor very emotional.
Impetuous Aries is forced to slow down with Saturn placed here, and this may be manifested in a powerful father or authority figure. Saturn in Aries is learning independence, self-reliance, patience, and initiative and can become singularly self-reliant or headstrong, defiant, and defensive. Saturn in Aries needs to learn to be independent and self-reliant, and it also needs to learn to cooperate with others in order to be successful.
Her forthright and frank approach to life exudes self-confidence and well-being. Her athletic figure reveals an active, vigorous lifestyle, and her very presence is electric with energy. This is not a woman who is idle or lazy in any way, shape, or form. Her most precious asset is her unfailing self-confidence. This enthusiastic soul trusts that her abilities and talents are real, and that it is only a matter of time before they are acknowledged. So Tawny puts herself out there, so to speak, trolling for life's treasures. She is able to generate enthusiasm and support for her projects. Her convincing proposals make others eager to participate. However, Tawny has also been known to take on too much, and has bitten off more than she could chew on more than one occasion. As spectacular as her victories are, these rare failures have been equally monumental. Still, she maintains an attitude of no guts, no glory.
You have the potential to deal with money and material matters in commercial endeavors with an efficient, energetic and dependable approach. You can be a good organizer and administrator using a realistic, practical manner. When you're using your potential fully, you're not likely to waste time with daydreams. Your ability to judge character along with your ambition and self-confidence can prove helpful (8 Life Path).
You are charming, generous, amiable, cooperative and persuasive. You like to entertain and be sociable, and are interested in new ideas. You are quick to seek justice whenever it is lacking. You may confuse your own desires and ambitions with those of others. Sexually, you are affected by external stimuli such as music, soft lights and beautiful surroundings. You may lack self-reliance and must develop the ability to stand alone. Inharmonious aspects can make you lazy, or you may feel that everyone should abide by your rules. Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, explorer Robert Peary, composer Gioacchino Rossini, golfer Arnold Palmer, actress Elke Sommer.
Your emotions are unpredictable, and you can be very intense. Because you are receptive and sympathetic, others easily take advantage of you. Your excessive sensitivity can stand in the way of self-confidence or decisive action, and you must develop initiative and self-reliance. You try to avoid confrontation of any kind. Though seemingly quiet on the outside, your demeanor hides an inner restlessness. You are usually shy, musical and even lazy. Sexually, you are very romantic and sensual. Difficult aspects may show a tendency to alcoholism or drug problems.
This influence increases Virgo's self-confidence, and adds determination and breadth of vision. These individuals will be far less inclined to worry, and will be optimistic in their outlook. The tendency to nag and carp, common to this sign, will also be less of a problem - but any hint of bossiness will have to be controlled. Those with this placing who read descriptions of their Sun sign will agree with everything that is written. They will work hard and in great detail, analyzing problems and being ultra-logical. They should, however, consciously develop self-confidence, for their nervous haste can cause careless mistakes, shyness, or over-talkativeness.
When the Sun sign is Virgo and Venus is in Libra there are other complications Virgos are known for their modesty, but the powerful Venus in Libra gives them a throbbing need for a beautiful relationship. To get full benefit from the glory of Venus in Libra, they will have to free themselves of their Virgoan lack of self-confidence.
Other factors in the chart which can inhibit such an intensely personalized approach (especially close aspects to the Ascendant). One can say, however, that the element of the Ascendant represents a type of self-projection that is physically energizing and which has a strong impact on one's self-confidence and sense of individual freedom and uniqueness. The Moon in the earth signs indicates one who tends to react in a very grounded, steady, matter-of-fact way. The reaction is so self-contained in those with Taurus or Capricorn Moon, in fact, that others often think there is no reaction at all Those with Moon in Virgo, however, generally react quite obviously and nervously to any stimulus. It might be mentioned here that those with the Moon in Virgo or Capricorn have a hard time feeling right about themselves self-acceptance for these people is generally based on the amount and quality of practical work accomplished, and their ability to adjust to life successfully usually depends upon...
If she really feels intent on a problem or on the plight of some less fortunate group of people, it becomes an issue in her entire life, from cooking meals to having sex to buttonholing people at the shopping center. She has the self-confidence and drive to effect great changes in our lifestyles, and the originator of a new or emerging style of living is often an Aquarian.
The Capricorn Woman fights a running battle with herself over her attraction to wealth and its glamorous trappings. She craves money and prestige she may also be a puritan and feel guilty about wanting or having it. She periodically dreams of sable coats, yachts, jewels, and country homes. She wants to wrap material security around her, as if to protect herself from the cold winter day of her birth. In fact, the warmth she needs is the sunshine of self-acceptance and love.
The woman who shows her anger is quickly called a bitch. She has no role models to help her transform anger into a positive force. Yet anger causes blocked communication. It also can cause low self-esteem, physical illness, psychosomatic illness, or outbursts of temper that may result in the loss of a job or a friendship and can even cause divorce. Anger is also a huge obstacle to healthy sexual expression. The angry woman closes down sexually. She may justify this as a means of punishing her partner or all men, but she is primarily hurting herself.
Those with too great an emphasis on the earth element tend to rely too much on things as they are or as they appear to be. There can be a narrowness of vision, an obsessive concern with what works rather than with what ideals one should shoot for, and often a marked lack of imagination. Former President Nixon is a good example (with Virgo rising and Capricorn Sun) of someone who over-emphasized practical efficiency and material concerns to the detriment of theoretical and ethical principles. It is easy for these people to lose perspective on their actions (unless they have an emphasis on air to balance this) and on the ultimate implications of their methods of operation. Naturally, those with a great deal of attunement to earth will exemplify a remarkable strength and efficiency in most cases, and they need to channel their energy into a specific work that challenges them. However, the world of work and practical affairs often tends to dominate their entire lives, with the eventual...
Some of the things the Cosmic Woman has had to confront and overcome during her past struggles are the position of women in our society (a basically Cancerian role) and the Leo-type role men have assumed the unhealthy and nonproductive competitiveness between women in the areas of glamour, academics, sports, childcare, and material acquisition and worst of all, the self-destructive I'm not as good as a man attitude. Too often this produces an aggressive attitude as an overcompensation for the feminine side of her nature. It has created an unrealistic set of goals and a low level of self-confidence. The Cosmic Woman has transcended the pettiness of life and has learned to look for significance, honesty, and love in all her endeavors.
Now, you mixed these three cards and placed the queen in the past position. This tells me that you became aware of your own individuality and of your special gifts early on in life. Your self-esteem has continued to grow and blossom since that time. The two is the present. This is the special relationship I mentioned. If he has not arrived yet, he soon will Two is also a highly intuitive number, so you will certainly be using that talent a great deal as well. In the future we have the nine, the caring number. It is also the Nine of Diamonds. Diamonds is the money suit, so the future will be good in that regard. You will never make money your god, as the nine is a strong number. However, you will ultimately be well provided for. This money is largely earned, but most of it is earned by someone else.

Her stunning auburn hair cascades down her back and she carries herself with an air of distinction and dignity. Opal is the undisputed matriarch of her family.

A good deal of the joy of discovery for the Sagittarius Woman lies in her ease of mastery. It seems she can do anything well. As a child she was often a musical prodigy, beginning piano and dance lessons at age three. Her coordination is excellent, and throughout her school years that natural athletic ability, coupled with her bright curiosity and warm, enthusiastic personality, makes her a very popular girl. Her talent, self-confidence, and natural leadership abilities frequently make her class or club president. Her ease and assurance elects her Most Likely to Succeed, and she leaves high school in a blaze of glory and high hopes.
In nature, this sign is feminine or negative making it silent, dormant and receptive. Some favorable attributes are self reliant, deep-thinking, refined, rhetorical, self-respecting and magnetic.

On any line of work this native likes to be in authority and if knowledgeable could make a splendid supervisor. Good at compromising and organizing. Rather ambitious but will cooperate to achieve his own goals yet he may be too ambitious for his own good. As previously mentioned Pisces is the most mystical and occult sign of all.

He can tolerate much adversity in his life and he tends to suffer inwardly. He is usually modest, possibly timid and lacking in self-confidence but he has a certain faith...
If one has too little emphasis in the fire signs, the fiery energy is lacking and the digestion is likely to be weak. A lack of fire usually manifests as a lack of spiritedness, a tendency not to trust life itself. The joy of living is often markedly absent, and the person is often devoid of faith and optimism. Self-confidence may also be poor, and there is often a tendency towards despondency and lack of enthusiasm for meeting life's demands. Challenges often scare these people, and any major life problem takes a long while to overcome, since the residual psychological effects tend to linger long after the experience has reached its peak. A lack of fire is almost always indicative of a major problem in the way the person approaches life. Vigorous physical exercise tends to stimulate the fiery energy and is highly recommended for this type of person. The diet should also be watched carefully, especially if the person also lacks earth, for he then doesn't have the digestive strength to...
It is often true that the sexiest-looking women are the most sexually insecure. A number of Libra Women have a poor self-image, a negative body image, and deep sexual fears. For a woman, the enjoyment of sex is tied to familiarity with the female body, with her own sexual response as well as with the male sexual response, and above all, to her love of self. The Libra Woman relies heavily on the media, especially on best-selling women's magazines like Cosmopolitan and Vogue, to set standards of beauty and sexiness. She often feels that she is inadequate by comparison. Because how she looks strongly influences how she feels, this sense of inadequacy permeates her entire self-image.

Her greatest problem may be that she expects too much and does not give enough. She has an idealized view of mating behavior. She usually expects high romance, glamour, and flawless courting from her mate, though she herself may make a less sweeping effort. Her exalted self-image may be such that she deems it unnecessary to keep on trying. She is frequently raised to believe that marriage is a colorful ending, a fait accompli. She is just as often astonished to learn that her marriage is but the start of a long mating dance that may or may not end with her dancing solo.
Persuasive and at the same time argumentative. Enthusiastic and active in partnerships. Often strife in relationships due to strong desire to have one's own way.

You tend to live for the moment and you run the scale of highs and lows with every shift of events. You are friendly, easy-going and popular, but if you use this lunar position negatively you can be capricious, fickle and critical.

She tends to throw herself headlong into a task and may be described as obsessive-compulsive. She combines low self-esteem with considerable self-reliance and self-sufficiency. If she must, she can function well in the world at large. She can take care of herself and of her own world as well. The trouble is that she is often stuck in routines she may be so good at details that she neglects to see, and be involved with, the whole. Knowing the precise origin and configuration of each tree may prevent her from seeing the freshness, originality, and potential of the forest.
Although the Sixth House is one of the two well-known health houses, people with planets in this house generally have a lack of self-esteem, and they tend to gravitate toward stronger, more confident individuals. In doing so they may succumb to other people's needs, ignoring their own. Therein lie the seeds of destructive ailments.
One of the greatest attractions of love affairs (another fifth house matter) is that such a relationship, although it may be totally impractical and often extremely disruptive, gives us a brief experience of self-worth simply because another person has found us worthy to love. In an intense love affair, our sense of identity is confirmed we see ourselves in the other person and, because we feel better about ourselves, our outlook on life itself brightens considerably. To sum up, a strong emphasis on the fifth house in the natal chart indicates that the individual must project himself into the world, that he must exercise his creative powers responsibly and consistently in order to attain the sense of joy and security he needs.

Statesman Daniel Webster, medical missionary Albert Schweitzer, FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, General Robert E. Lee, pianist Oscar Levant, President Richard Nixon, actress Faye Dunaway.
