Up Up and Away

Of all the Moon signs, Sagittarius encourages high hopes and optimism the most. Always look on the bright side of life'' sums them up well. While this is admirable, they do need to keep a balance. If some necessary counter-indications do not emerge from the is tinged with negative emotion and a feeling of helplessness, or even a temporary loss of self-confidence. Sagittarians should always aim for consistency of effort. If they are able to do so, there will be considerable development of...

It will become that, in such cases, they have simply had a better offer. They can be very tactful about this, but in the end they are transparent -especially if Aries is the Rising sign. It is here that the subtle influence of Libra - the polar, or opposite, sign across the zodiac - comes into play. Libra is all tact and diplomacy, and will tell untruths so as not to directly upset other people. Overall, however, our Aries friends are fun, and we always have a good time when with them. Even if...

Leo as ascendant

A certain well-known English astrologer always used to say ''when Leo rises, the only thing to do is to keep it down'', which was a considerable confession since it was her Ascendant sign. Everyone who knew anything about astrology was well aware of it working extremely powerfully in her case. Because they have special powers from the Sun - the source of creation -there is an element of creativity in this zodiac type. This does not mean that they are all actors or performers (although an...

Leo determination is in a class of its own

Existing in a dull job simply to make money, they really should go in for some soul-searching in order to discover what they would really like to do during their working hours. Obviously there are limitations. For instance, if one is 30 and has never taken a ballet class, one cannot expect to dance Swan Lake, and it would be most inadvisable to give up a steady job to write a novel. But certain compromises can be made. A person with office experience could land an administrative job with a...

Leo in Friendship Love and Permanent Relationships

Family and friends will find themselves the beneficiaries of a Leo's desire to impress, whatever their age or financial position. There is an element of youthfulness in the way Leos relate to their friends. They want everyone to enjoy being with them, and to join in everything that is entertaining, memorable, and rewarding. Outings will be planned with great enthusiasm and expectation, and in a certain Leo style. How this is interpreted will, of course, very much rely on the size of their...

Sun And Mercury

Because these two bodies cannot be more than 28 apart, the only aspects they can form is the conjunction or the very weak semi-sextile. A detailed interpretation of Sun and Mercury in the same sign is on pp203-9. Use this as your guide, as in most cases it will apply and be very relevant. A happy, carefree attitude is typical for the conjunction of the Sun and Jupiter. CONJUNCTION A lively, carefree influence which will bring optimism and a spirit of good fortune to the individual. Usually a...

The

Positive A fairly easy passage through career, with steady progress. Usually contentment at, and with, work. Negative Struggles due to family resistance or limited education. the way in which we are noticed for our achievements. As with the Ascendant, the efficacy of these aspects relies on the accuracy of the birth time. If this is uncertain, rely solely on...

Placing The Twelve Houses

The next stage is to divide up your chart into the 12 houses. As you will see from the diagram these occupy three segments, and start immediately below the Ascendant Descendant line. Unless your Ascendant falls in the first position, the signs and houses will not entirely match each other. For positions 2 and 3, there will be segments of the next sign covering part of the house. You will also see from the positions of the arrows that the signs rise and set in a clockwise

Aquarius in Friendship Love and Permanent Relationships

Aquarian symbol of the Water-carrier Those of us who have an Aquarian friend are fortunate indeed. Here is someone we should treasure and respect. They are extremely faithful, and once the bond between us has been sealed we have a friend for life. The chances are that even if we do not get together for ages, when we do meet up again, we will simply pick up from where we left off. Even if there is a huge distance between us, our Aquarian friend will make full use of all forms of communication...

Leo and money

In theory, Leos need to make a lot of money, because they like to have the best and the most expensive of everything. For instance, it is interesting to notice that no matter how glamorous their costume jewellery may be, they will be eager to convert to the real stuff as soon as possible. But they are in no way stupid with cash. Leos will be very good at saving for really important things in life, like a house or car. Starting off with an old banger, they will be keen to move on to something...

Capricorn in Friendship Love and Permanent Relationships

Capricorns are like the salt of the earth when it comes to forming friendships. They are constant, true, and faithful, and for the most part we can have a great deal of fun when we get together with them. If we have known them for long, we can reminisce about old times. However, while j Capricorns will delight in recalling amusing anecdotes, we can sometimes find them in a depressed mood. Then nothing is right with the world they have had a dreadful day, or the current political situation is...

Pisces and money

Pisceans must face the fact that they are not at all good at coping with their finances. Cash slips through their fingers with fluid ease, and all too often there is nothing left with which to pay the rent, the phone bill, or the taxman. This may just be because the Piscean has been enjoying too many concerts, or having drinks at a favourite bar, or buying scores of pairs of shoes (many of which will never be worn because they hurt). Their credit cards are all too easily stretched and broken by...

Taurus can attach too much importance to making money

Home ownership is of prime importance too, but some care is needed here that the temptation to own the ideal home does not result in Taureans taking on a much bigger mortgage than is wise. In theory, they will be aware of the danger signals, but the appearance -and more importantly the size - of the chosen house or apartment might turn out to be just too irresistible for them to turn down. It can happen that Taurus attaches too much importance to making money - in spite of much-needed peace of...

This had an incalculable effect on the study of astrology in England. For well over a century, people taught themselves astrology from this book, which instructed them to be, in Lilly's words humane, courteous, familiar to all, easy ofjudgement afflict not the miserable with terror of a harsh judgement direct such to call on God, to divert his judgements impending over them let no worldly wealth procure an erroneous judgement from thee, or such as may dishonour the art.

Sun sign cancer

Here is a potentially caring and loving parent to whom family life will be extremely important. But we also have here one of the most sensual and responsive lovers of the whole zodiac. This can result in possessiveness and a tenacity which sometimes becomes overwhelming. The break-up of a relationship will be incredibly painful and difficult for both partners. There is considerable flair for business. When logic and intuition meet, as they do in those that have this combination, individuals are...

Midheaven And The Equal House System

When using the Equal House System, the Midheaven does not always fall in the Tenth House of the chart, as it does with other house division systems. If you have a planet in conjunction with your Midheaven, you will find it revealing if you read the interpretation for the Tenth House it will have considerable relevance. However, do not forget to integrate the planet's original house placing, as well as this one, into your interpretation. Eating out and socializing, often in glamorous places, is...

Virgo and money

When Virgos have some cash to invest, it is unlikely that they will take risks by getting involved in get-rich-quick schemes. Once will almost certainly be enough if they are trapped and fail, they will never be tempted again. The influence of the sign's earth element is in evidence here. Their natural instinct is to go for steady growth, which is precisely the right way for them, and they should always look for sound financial advice. on the whole, Virgos are careful with money, partly because...

Need For Structure

It is important for forward-looking parents to remember that while they may be attracted to the type of school that is modern in outlook and its objectives, and more experimental and free in discipline, their Capricorn child will be more conventional and may thrive far better in a school with a traditional outlook and attitude, and somewhat more structured discipline. This kind of background will give the child a sense of security, whereas in a freer atmosphere confusion and shyness might...

Aquarius as ascendant

Many of the qualities listed above will definitely apply to those with Aquarius as their Rising sign. Here is the same independent spirit, the need to be individual and live life the way one wants. However, the difference between independence and isolation must be recognized, and the way this group comes to terms with it will very much depend on their respective Sun and Moon signs. The emphasis on an outgoing fire sign, or the other air signs, will help enormously, while the water and earth...

Gemini in Education Jobs and Money

If any child will benefit from listening to Mozart while still in the womb, a Gemini will. It will be worth remembering that stimulating the mind of the young Gemini is absolutely vital. Parents must constantly be aware that even from their baby's earliest months, the risk of boredom will be huge. Geminian babies will be fascinated by the shapes, colours, and movement of a dangling mobile. But if they have nothing to look at except a plain wall, they will get bored very soon and become tetchy....

Sun sign gemini

This powerful placing of Mercury does much to control Geminian superficiality, adds stability to the thought process, increases common sense, and instills a practical outlook. There is more consistency of effort, and less tendency to become restless. All the basic Sun-sign characteristics of Gemini will be present, with duality, restlessness, and the inability to cope with boredom very much emphasized. The mind will work extremely quickly, darting from one aspect of a subject to another. There...

Onward And Upward

Sharing common interests is important in all bonds of friendship, but never more so than with Gemini friends. If they have nothing in common, there will be less to share and less to talk about. All too soon, the Gemini will get bored and say goodbye, or make excuses when the next meeting is suggested. But if there are shared interests, the feedback will be terrific. This will add vibrancy to the friendship that is both natural and very stimulating, and will result in years of fun. If by chance...

Sun sign libra

Libran indecisiveness will be very much countered by the strong, logical influence of Mercury from its own sign, Virgo. But, in being graced with this blessing, Libra must also consciously control the Virgoan tendency to nag, especially their partners. They have excellent minds and if inclined to intellectual pursuits, should become really involved. Mental cobwebs are not good for them. This placing will increase Libran indecisiveness and tend to encourage mental laziness. Drifting and day...

Capricorn as a sun sign

While not generally considered one of the dual signs of the zodiac, Capricorn is a very strong contender for this grouping the symbolic creature of the sign being half-goat and half-fish. The contrasts between the two very different beasts is obvious, and the interpretation of a well-known British astrologer was that here are the giddy mountain goats and the wet fish. Indeed it does sometimes seem that more contrasting qualities can be seen in Capricornean individuals than in people of any...

Libra in Friendship Love and Permanent Relationships

There is always something particularly pleasant at the prospect of meeting up with our Libran friends. Whether we have arranged a splendid dinner at a favourite restaurant or are having a quick get together over coffee, their easy style will make for an interesting catch-up with our respective news and gossip. Having a lively exchange of opinions on joint interests will be fun, and we know that we will part feeling more light-hearted than when we met. we must, however, be prepared to be rather...

The Star Of Bethlehem

From time to time, two large planets such as Jupiter and Saturn appear close to each other in the night sky. It was probably the sight of such a spectacular conjunction that alerted the biblical Magi to an extraordinary event, and made them follow the star of Bethlehem to the manger in which Christ was born - there was a conjunction of these two planets in March, 6 bce, and it was particularly brilliant in those latitudes.

The chiron factor

Chiron was discovered on 1 November 1977 by Charles Kowal, an astronomer at Palomar Observatory in California. Initially labelled an asteroid, it is now classified as a half-comet, with an orbit between that of Saturn and Uranus. It rotates on its axis in just under six hours and orbits the Sun in 50.7 Earth years. Because of eccentricities in the orbit, Chiron spends varying lengths of time travelling through each sign. A sign rulership has not been finalized for Chiron, and keywords are still...

Aquarius and careers

Aquarians are people people, so a career where there is direct contact with others will be rewarding. Their caring qualities will be fully expressed when they opt for any area of the medical profession, or for work as tour guides, air stewards, or on cruise lines. In fact the range is extremely wide and very varied. Because of their free spirit they should try to avoid a simple nine-to-five routine, the predictability of which would drive them crazy, even if the actual work is extremely...

Cancer in Friendship Love and Permanent Relationships

Cancerians are one of those groups with whom friendships last for a very long time - and they will remember precisely what we were wearing and what was said when we first met, even if that first meeting was way back in kindergarten. Taking a stroll down memory lane with them will be delightful fun. However, that excellent memory can work in other ways as well. Maybe we said something ages ago that upset a Cancerian, and while they will be unlikely to keep referring to it, it will be all too...

Addey's work on what he termed the harmonics of cosmic periods is among the most important of the second half of the last century. Contributing to the debate on the validity of astrology was Frenchman...

Aquarius and money

Very few Aquarians like to spend time studying the markets in order to make money or deciding how to invest their capital. To keep boredom at bay, and to make sure that their cash is safe, they should opt for a savings account at a bank which offers a reasonable level of interest, or perhaps an investment bond where the interest level is low but offers no serious risks. Studying climate change or a similarly ecologically-based career will suit many Aquarians. With their liking for the glamorous...

Capricorn in permanent relationships

Once committed to a permanent relationship, Capricorns will take it very seriously. If partners are free to marry, they will - more often than not - want to tie the knot. Seeing that everything is done the right and proper way is important to them, and they will take the view that the official piece of paper linking them together is vital - to a far greater degree than most. Their attitude to finance is usually also very formal, and many Capricorns will seriously consider making a prenuptial...

Finding their Voice

Young Aquarians do well when being allowed to express their opinions however, when exam time comes around they must learn to revise carefully and be sure of facts. This will be both boring and difficult for them, but if they go off at tangents, spurting their own opinions, the chances are that they will not get good grades. At university they will do well to make sure that the subjects they read will be useful to them in their career. So if they can concentrate on these and master them, their...

Libran intuition comes into its own with investments

That interest them, such as their favourite group of department stores or a large cosmetics company, they can get really involved. Libran intuition (a quality often ignored by astrologers) comes into its own when investing, and they should listen to what it is telling them - in most cases it is unlikely to let them down. As far as financial risk is concerned, there are times when they get rather too excited by a new business venture or project, and it is easy for them to get carried away and...

Libra as moon sign

Moon-in-Libra people are the peacemakers of the zodiac. They express sympathy and kindness, with total awareness of what is going on in any situation the immediate response to any tricky or difficult situation will be to attempt to sort things out quickly, quietly, and amicably. Libran tact and diplomacy, which emerges poignantly with the Sun- and Rising-sign people, is heightened when Libra is the Moon sign. However, in personal matters, the tendency to procrastinate over decisions will still...

The circle of friends is small, and often consists of people older than the individual. Interests developed when young will last a lifetime.

The Outer Planets

Traditionally known as the superior planets, the outer planets are those with orbits outside that of the Earth. Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn were the furthest prominent lights recognized by man in ancient times. Saturn, the most distant from the Sun, was seen as the ultimate outpost, marking the end of the Universe. Mars, in orbit between the Earth and Jupiter, resembles Earth more closely than any other planet though it is only half its diameter. Its two satellites or moons, Phobos and Deimos,...

The Second Six Houses

Just as the First House is the most personal of the 12, so its polar house (the Seventh) relates to our attitude toward partners - not only in love but also in business. A planet here will be a big factor in our attitude. The Second House rules security through earnings, and in the Eighth House the accent is on inheritance, investment, unearned income, and insurance. Negative emotions, such as jealousy and resentfulness, can emerge, often countered by self-analysis and soul searching. Sexual...

Virgo in love

When Virgos realize they have fallen in love an all too common reaction is But what does he or she see in me The chances are that the admired one will see a very great deal that is lively, friendly, and - contrary to tradition -extremely sexy. What is also fascinating is Virgo's very natural and genuine modesty. It has a great deal of charm, but, like their initial self-questioning, can convince them that they are not really very attractive. They should remember that shyness can be a great...

The Mars Factor

On an orbit that varies between 208 and 248 million kilometres from the Sun, Mars is the fourth planet in our solar system and the first of the outer planets. Below and on the following pages, we have summarized the influence of Mars on each of the 12 signs of the zodiac.

St Augustine fervently arguec against astrology. about 160ce and perhaps the most influential of early Christian theologians, argued that it was the fallen angels who had taught man astrology. But the most prominent of early Christian antagonists of astrology was St Augustine (345-430) who argued against it in his books Christian Doctrine and The City of God. Like many churchmen, Augustine did not study the subject, but simply regurgitated old arguments from pre-Christian eras. His objections...

Astrological significance

Jupiter's influence is at its strongest when it is placed in Sagittarius, the sign it rules. Because it is the traditional ruler of Pisces (now ruled by the modern planet Neptune), the planet also has a somewhat more pronounced effect on those individuals who have it in that sign. It is not surprising that the main keyword of Jupiter is expansion - it is after all the largest planet in our solar system. It is totally gaseous and with no solid core, and has a delicate and mysterious appearance....

Gemini in permanent relationships

It is usually a rollercoaster ride for those with Geminians as permanent partners. There are highs and lows in every relationship, but here the switchback seems constant, and the change in directions dizzying. The partner needs to be very much on the ball to be able to cope with unexpected developments - they will certainly add zest to life, but may also be unsettling. For the relationship to flourish, it is essential that there is an extremely lively intellectual rapport between the Gemini and...

Info

As science furthered its discoveries and developed its laws of the universe, astrology became increasingly contentious, and a schism eventually developed between the previously indistinguishable studies of astronomy and astrology. For most, however, astrology continued to be a compelling subject, and one that was readily turned to in times of need. This 15th-century scientific manuscript contains articles relating to medicine, the computing of the calendar, the planets and stars, and human...

Libra and money

Librans love to spend money, often shopping till they drop. Organizing their finances and filling out tax returns will be extremely boring for them, but they do have to keep the peace with the taxman, and will eventually get round to all that form-filling - or employ an expensive accountant to do it for them. When investing on the stock market, indecision could be their downfall because of missed opportunities, so they need a trusted advisor at these times too. If Librans invest in areas...

Libra as a sun sign

Apart from being the only zodiac symbol that does not represent a living creature, the symbol of the Scales has an extremely interesting and important meaning for Sun-sign Librans. Balance and harmony are crucial to their lives, and it is vital for their wellbeing that they are as free as possible from upsetting arguments and from anything that seriously disturbs their peace and quiet. In quest of the balance they consciously or unconsciously need, a great many of them will simply wait and see...

Libra in Education Jobs and Money

The youngest Libran child will have a great deal of charm and will soon find that smiles and sweetness get them what they want. when it comes to nursery school, parents will see these tactics expressed even more successfully. There is a good chance that in such an environment young Librans are likely to throw a tantrum, especially if another child is playing with a toy that they want. In such cases, instructors can appeal to the little one's instinct for fair play and sharing by suggesting that...

Scorpio as ascendant

When Scorpio rises, it casts its influence on the entire birth chart. It energizes the individual's Sun sign and increases his or her emotional level, which, in most cases, is an asset. But, in the case of ''cool'' Sun signs - say Virgo, Capricorn, or Aquarius - there may be a conflict between expressing emotions and adopting a rational and logical approach. Scorpio will, however, add an element of get-up-and-go that will be especially valuable if it is in sync with other indications in the...

Scorpio in love

When Scorpios fall in love, they fall really hard. They are not just sexually, but psychologically passionate - often with an almost obsessive affection for the partner and a hope that it is reciprocated with equal fervour. An unrequited love will often act as a considerable challenge for Scorpios. They will not give up easily, and will pursue their admired one doggedly, using every trick in the book until they get the desired response. Scorpio affairs will not be placid like a pleasant drift...

Scorpio in permanent relationships

Scorpio determination and sense of purpose are more vehemently expressed when they decide that they are ready to settle into a permanent relationship. They will do everything possible to make it a success, and will work really hard on practical problems such as finding a place to live and making the home comfortable. If both partners are working fulltime, they will need to lay down some clear-cut ground rules. Otherwise, a Scorpio's naturally suspicious mind will go into overdrive when, for...

Scorpios tend to be obsessive

A good example by often arriving at work before anyone else does, and will notice and reward dedication, good work, and the right kind of attitude. This keenness will bring about benefit for the rest of the team as well. Scorpios tend to be obsessive about their careers. So, while they go all out for success, they can end up not spending as much time with their families as they should. This is something that will, no doubt, be pointed out to them when the partners can no longer put up with...

Sun sign aquarius

Both these signs are known for their love of independence, so commitment to a permanent relationship will be considerably delayed. Enjoyment of doing their own thing in their own individual way is crucial, while at the same time there will be an equal enjoyment of love and sex and no lack of willing partners. Serious saving schemes may tend to be very boring. Aquarians always enjoy their unique and independent lifestyle and are reluctant to sacrifice it. With Venus in this sign, here is...

This placing increases Virgoan emotions and makes for rewarding love and sex. Here is a joint tendency to worry from the two signs most prone to it. When Venus gets out of hand, Virgoan logic and common sense will be expressed -which is not easy, as a lot of concern will be focussed on the partner. Money is handled practically and carefully. Venusian fire will add enthusiasm for love and sex, and sexual fulfillment should not be a problem neither should Virgoan modesty, which Venus will...

Sun sign Scorpio

The Venus influence from Virgo will cool Scorpio's ardour and add modest Virgoan charm. It can cause inhibition, but, in some cases, can also encourage an obsession with sex. The Moon and or Ascending signs will usually counter such problems. This is a good placing for intensive, passionate Sun-in-Scorpio types who will be romantic and sensitive with partners. These individuals are capable of true love, which will be expressed in long relationships. However, there is a Scorpios with Venus in...

They should train themselves to stop and carefully think through these sudden...

Aquarius in permanent relationships

So at last Aquarians have reached the point where they are ready to deepen an existing relationship into something permanent, or even to seal the knot by getting married. To get this far they will have experienced a very great deal of soul-searching, summing up their prospective partners, and making quite sure that the sacrifice of their independence will be at a minimum. Aquarians need partners who will allow them to do their own thing. The couple should have a great deal in common, but it...

It can be very difficult when one wants to end a relationship with a Scorpio. They will cling on in the hope of making a fresh start, especially if they have been at fault and are nursing guilt. On the contrary, if they feel that they have had enough, the end may come as a short sharp blow to the partner.

From a very early age young Capricorns will be more able and content to amuse themselves than children of many other signs. Once at nursery school, the little one may have to be encouraged to mix with other children. Because there is a tendency for Capricorns to be loners, encouraging them to join in from the start is a very good thing.

The Moon in Aquarius strongly underlines everything glamorous. Women under this influence, for instance, will love the glitter and gleam of sequins and beads, and will usually choose evening clothes that seriously sparkle.

In spite of attempting to be cool, calm, and collected, and very independent, Aquarians have a wildly romantic streak that is often expressed through a love of...

Job satisfaction is of above average importance to this zodiac group. They are good organizers, disciplined, enthusiastic, optimistic, and like things to be right - all qualities which need full expression in the Leo career or profession.

Whether this is really the case will, of course, depend on their Sun and Ascending signs and other areas of their full chart. However, the Capricorn sense of humour will emerge with great spontaneity, and can do a very great deal to counter what may be an unfortunate first impression. The tendency to grumble or carp will emerge, usually over small...
