Astrology Birth Chart Interpretation

A Step by Step Guide By JKS Astrology

Introduction

Astrology birth charts provide a detailed insight into ones personality and life.  They represent the positions of the sun, moon and planets at the exact time and location of one’s birth.  They also take into account the precise time of day a person was born.

This means that astrology birth charts are unique, and very rare for different people to share similar aspects when it comes to interpretation of the chart.


Step 1 – Creating a Birth Chart

There are three ways to create a birth chart, such as:

  • Use computer software such Solar Fire Gold.
  • Create a chart manually using an emphermis.  There are books that can show you the manual methods to calculate charts.
  • Use an online chart creation tool.  This article will only discuss creating astrology birth charts using online tools.  Below explains how to use an online astrology birth chart creation tool.

Step 2 – Interpret Sun, Moon and Planet positions

Astrology birth chart interpretation is simpler when the chart is broken down into individual pieces.  Once we have all the individual interpretations for the positions of the sun, moon and planets.  We can them summarise the overall meaning.  Birth chart interpretation can be a complicated task.  Every person will have their own technique.  The technique I am about to show you is how I do it.  This guide is based on my own birth chart:

Step 3 – Group your interpretations under specific subheadings

I believe the best way to interpret a chart is to group your interpretations (from step 2) into certain categories, by using the following sub headings.  Below are examples of the subheading you can use.  In fact, it is likely you will only need these subheadings, no matter who you are constructing a reading for!

General Personality

  • Any Sun sign or Sun in house
  • Any Ascendant sign

Emotions

  • Any Moon sign or Moon in house
  • Any Neptune in house

Love and Friendships

  • Any Venus sign or Venus in house

Home life and Childhood

  • Any sign in 4th house

Sex and Aggression

  • Any Mars sign or Mars in house
  • Any Pluto in house

Travel and Beliefs

  • Any Jupiter sign or Jupiter in house

Career

  • Any Saturn sign or Saturn in house

Below I have listed all interpretations from step 2. 

And I have explained what subheading they will be located under and why. 

Step 4 shows you the result of this.

Sun in Pisces – General Personality subheading

(Good introduction.  Best to position this at the top of your reading.  You could put this under a subheading called general personality)

At the exact time of your birth, the sun was in the constellation Pisces.  This is your star sign; however, this reading does not take into account your star sign only.  Many factors are also considered, such as the positions of the moon and planets at the time of your birth.

A typical Pisces lives by their emotions more than logic.  Because of this, they usually have fantastic imaginations and creative ability.  Being the most sensitive sign in the zodiac, they are like a sponge, soaking up the emotions of others.  Love and romance are something most Pisces desire, as they are natural romantics.  Sometimes these emotions may be overwhelming which could lead to withdrawal or escapist-type behaviors.

We will now look deeper into your personality to see if you match this typical Pisces personality.  Not everyone will as every person is unique, just like this reading!

Sun in 8th house – General Personality subheading

(Provides good insight into the type of life the person will lead.  You could put this under a subheading called general personality)

You have a deep connection with the deeper and darker sides of life such as death, the occult, taboos, and anything else that is unexplored or mysterious.  It is easy for you to ‘see through’ anything that is superficial; this includes situations and people. In fact, you really dislike anything fake or superficial.  You have an intense awareness of yourself which may lead to phases of self improvement and psychological change.  These changes to your personality are likely to happen over long periods of time, and quite out of public view.  This makes you a naturally complex and secretive person who appears to be rather mysterious to some.  At some point in your life you may be attracted to stock markets and banking.  Careers that can make use of your investigative and creative nature will be ideal for you.  You have powerful sexual feelings and desires that are long lasting.

While growing up, it is likely that your parents did not recognize your true needs. This is probably because your parents had many problems of their own, and expected you to be supportive of them.  Throughout your life, you may have a sense of loneliness that is hard to explain; for example, you could be in a crowd of people and still feel lonely.

Leo Ascendant – General Personality subheading

(Explains what a person is like on the outside.  It is the image they want people to see. Does not always represent what they are inside!)

You come across as someone who is showy, maybe wearing jewelry and other accessories. Clothes may be of a bright color such as yellow. People see you as an honest and generous person who has much pride. Regardless of your physique, you cannot help but be noticed. You have a personality that is excessively charged with passion and sexual desire. You radiate a special energy and magnetism that gets others’ attention. Sometimes you love this attention and may even show off. You may sometimes be loud vocal-wise, or just pay a lot of attention to your personal appearance (especially the hair).

Moon in Scorpio – Emotions subheading

(Explains a person’s emotional character.  You could put this under a subheading called Emotions)

You are an emotionally intense person who often feels the need for change when life starts to get boring.  There is great presence about you, even if you are shy.  Being very strong-headed, not many things scare or shock you.

Because you fear betrayal, it is important for your partners to be fully committed in your relationships. Once in a serious relationship with someone, you’re extremely loyal and protective.

You can see through people, judging their character and motivations accurately.  You can be fiercely competitive, especially with those of your own sex. If you are settled down with a partner, you are likely to be wrapped around their little finger, doing most things they say.  You are fond of subjects like the occult and the paranormal.

You may have been born at a time when your mother experienced a crisis, or your birth may have been traumatic.  Your mother may be possessive and intense.

Moon in 4th house – Home life and Childhood subheading

(4th house is related to the home.  You could put this under a subheading called Home life and childhood)

You have a strong attachment to your roots and childhood memories.  There were likely many difficulties or changes within your childhood, which has deeply affected you. Because of this you have a natural understanding of what makes a secure and harmonious home life, which is something you strongly desire.  It is likely you have had to change residences more than most people (most likely living near water).  Or maybe you simply feel the need to make many changes in your home.  At some point in your life, you may be interested in antiques, old houses, and researching your family tree.

There was, and will always be, a deep connection between you and your mother.

Mercury in Aquarius – Love and Friendships subheading

(Venus explains your romantic and friendly nature.  You could put this under a subheading called Love and Relationships)

You are an original, open-minded, and inventive thinker who has many insights.  Always active, your mind thinks of many ideas, some which are rather inventive.  People may not always understand where you are coming from, as your thinking is so original and different.

You are not one to follow tradition and likely to rebel against it.  This leads to you having unusual ways of doing things.  For example, when you study, it is likely to be unusual in some way as you do not like to follow schedules.

The way you speak is witty and clever, and you also having a great sense of humor that is unique.  Practical jokes are something that really amuse you.  Being a good judge of character, your powers of observation are strong.  You enjoy intellectual debates with people.

Venus in Aquarius – Love and Friendships subheading

(Venus explains your romantic and friendly nature.  You could put this under a subheading called Love and Relationships)

You have a sparkle in your personality that produces many friends.  You have a romantic side that is cool, calm, and detached.  When it comes to love, you are unique, having a different outlook than most people.  You do not like to follow all the traditional rules when it comes to love, preferring to do things your own way.  This originality has probably led to your dating various types of people from all different kinds of backgrounds.  Also, you have little regard for what society, your family, or peers think of your relationships.

You are incredibly friendly, and this can lead to friends turning into lovers without you even knowing at first.  Most of your romantic encounters happen suddenly; some even happen in an unusual way.

An ideal partner for you would need to feel like a friend, and appreciate your unique way of doing things.  You want people to love you for your intellect, and to admire your visions.  You’re also attracted to unusual or unconventional relationships.

Mercury in 7th house – Love and Friendships subheading

(7th house is related to friendships and love. You could put this under a subheading called Love and Relationships)

You learn a lot from the intellectual debates you have with people; bouncing ideas off them helps you make decisions and to see other points of view.  Communicating with people on a one-to-one basis is something you are very good at.

An ideal partner for you will need to be rather communicative and intellectually stimulating.  You can keep a conversation going, as you have many interesting things to say; however, if you do not get this in return, you are likely to become bored.  You probably enjoy talking about and analyzing other relationships.

Mars in Scorpio – Sex and Aggression Category

(Mars is related to a person’s sex and aggressive traits. You could put this under a subheading called Sex and Agression)

You are the type of person that gives 100% or nothing at all; this applies to every thing you do.  When you do give it your all, you have incredible will power and persistence.  This is the extreme part of your nature which also applies to your anger.  You keep your cool and your stability on the surface. Below the surface may be another story, filled with repressed anger ready to explode at any moment. When you’re in this state of mind, you are likely to become rather sarcastic and snappy with people.

You are also extreme when it comes to confrontation; sometimes you say nothing at all, and other times you go over the top.  You rarely lose control, but when you do, you stop at nothing to get more than even with someone.  The frightening display of the anger you show shocks people.

It is possible you have the ability to see through others, easily reading their true motives.

When it comes to sex, you are intensely passionate and sensual.  You are likely to be especially attractive to the opposite sex, whether or not you are physically attractive. You may be fascinated with sexuality in all its expressions; certainly your interest is always keen.  Your interest in sex may lead you to experiment sexually, trying many different things.  Even things that are considered socially or culturally unacceptable (taboos) may be of interest to you.

You’re a very loyal friend, but also a bitter enemy; betrayal is something you never forget.  You’re jealous and possessive of your sexual partners.

Mars in 4th house – Family and Childhood

(4th house is related to a person’s family and childhood experiences. You could put this under a subheading called family and Childhood)

Throughout your life you have had many family confrontations, frequently having arguments with them, about them, or on their behalf.  You can be fiercely protective of your family too.  You might attempt to rule the roost on the home front, or you often take on a leadership role at home and with family.  Improving or fixing up your home is something you enjoy.

During your childhood, you were not an assertive person; however, your assertiveness definitely increases with age.  Also, your mother was incredibly emotional and hot-tempered.  This often caused a difficult relationship between you.

Within you there is deeply buried anger.  It is possible you may choose not to marry.

Jupiter in Capricorn – Career

(Capricorn is related to career goals and social status. You could put this under a subheading called Career)

You seek professional status and recognition.  You want to see real results that others can point to as yours. With your fine organizational skills and step-by-step approach to tasks, there are many careers that you are suited to.

If you believe you are right, you will argue very hard for your point of view.  You enjoy taking responsibility and being in a position of authority. You work hard to gain the approval of authority figures.

Jupiter in 5th house – Love and Relationships

(5th house is related to love and relationships. You could put this under a subheading called love and relationships)

Within you there is a passion to express yourself and to make a contribution to society. This is because you have an abundance of creative energy, likely to be in the form of artistic skills.

You are generous, playful, and warm, particularly with children, and in your romantic life.  Your sex drive is very powerful, and children may be conceived rather easily.

Saturn in Scorpio – Sex and Aggression

(Scorpio is related to a person’s sex and aggressive traits. You could put this under a subheading called Sex and Aggression)

Deep down inside, there is a part of you that is kept secret; powerful emotions are kept under strict control, maybe even repressed.  This may have caused you many problems in your life, as your true personality is unable to be totally revealed to others.  Love relationships can be a fine example of this; revealing your true feelings to your partners may be very difficult.

On the more positive side, your powerful emotions give you much drive, determination, and endurance to achieve your goals.  If someone has annoyed or upset you, there is often a nagging desire to get even with them.  You may have obsessive tendencies.

Saturn in 4th house – Home Life and Childhood

(4th house is related to a person’s family and childhood experiences. You could put this under a subheading called family and Childhood)

You might remember your childhood as one that lacked warmth and affection.  Much hardship has been experienced during your childhood upbringing, and your father may have appeared emotionally distant.

Also you were probably allocated duties and responsibilities around the home.  As an adult, you try to break free from the past and your family background, either physically or psychologically, or maybe both.  Once this is achieved, and you free yourself from your past memories, your personality is likely to bloom.

Acquiring your own secure and stable home may be a major goal in your life.

Uranus in 5th house – Love and Relationships

(5th house is related to love and relationships. You could put this under a subheading called love and relationships)

Naturally creative and inventive, you love to do things differently from most people.  Some of your hobbies are very unusual, which may seem weird to most people.

Romantic involvement occurs in sudden and unconventional ways, and breaks are also sudden and unexpected.  You are attracted to unusual, exciting, and creative partners.  As a teenager, you may have decided to date an older person.

If you have children, it is likely you raised them differently than how you were raised.  Any children you have are probably highly original and maybe even eccentric.

Forms of creativity that require much discipline may be difficult for you; this is because you require the freedom to be inventive.  For example, if you were leaning how to paint, it requires the practice of many techniques; this would be too tedious and boring for you.  The creative talents could be in the form of computer skills, fixing cars, or using technology.

At some point in your life, you may be inclined to invest or gamble.  Your approach is to buy and sell in a spontaneous manner, without thinking everything through.  Therefore, you can be very risky and should approach investing or gambling with much caution.

Pluto in 4th house – Home Life and Childhood

(4th house is related to a person’s family and childhood experiences. You could put this under a subheading called family and Childhood)

During your childhood you experienced a volcanic and isolated home life.  Maybe your father was emotionally distant, and would explode in a rage when he got angry.  Whatever the case, intense and shocking events in your childhood may still live in your memory.

Your mother was very protective of you, shielding you from any negative experiences.  However, this does not protect you in the long run, as you grow up insecure and fearing change.


Step 4 –Result of Grouping, from step 3

This step shows you the outcome of step 3.  As you can see the individual interpretations have been organised into subheadings.  This method not only makes it easier for a person to read, it can also help you analyse someones personality in detail.

Step 5 –Take note of important chart features

1. Are there Stelliums (group of celestial bodies)?

Look at the chart in step 1. What are the important astrology birth chart interpretation features? First of all there is a stellium of moon and planets in the 4th  This means keywords associated with the 4th house is important to that person such as home, family, past, roots.  There is also a satellitium of planets in the 5th This means keywords associated with that house also play an important role in that person’s life such as love, fun, gambling.

2.  How are the celestial bodies scattered across the chart?

Nearly all the celestial bodies fall within the lower part of the chart. Usually this is a good indication that the person is more introverted then extrovert.

3.  Importance of the Suns house.

The house the sun falls in is a good indication of ones path in life.

 


Step 6 –Modify and tweak your interpretations so they make sense

By now you should have interpreted all your celestial positions.  Then categorized them under certain sub headings.  It may of taken you along time.  The good news is that my online natal chart report does this for you, plus it arranges the individual interpretations into certain categories (such as the ones in this example).  Therefore my free astrology birth chart interpretation report completes steps 1 to 4!

You have almost created the perfect astrology birth chart interpretation.  Look back at your individual interpretations of the sun, moon and planets (or on the free computerized astrology report generator).  You will probably notice some contradictions and repetitions between them.  Don’t worry this is perfectly normal.  It is the skill of an astrologer to assess the overall meaning of a chart, and decide what statements are true.  This step involves modifying some of your statements so that the astrology reading makes sense, and flows.  Remember that you are essentially describing someone’s personality and life.  Some astrologers use astrological jargon in their readings such as sun in house 8 means your this, your ascendant is this, etc.  I don’t include details of positions, as I like to keep things simple and clear.  I only write about the person’s unique traits and life experiences.

Below is an example of how I would edit the interpretations in step 4.  I will also consider the overall chart features seen in step 5

 

General Personality

At the exact time of your birth, the sun was in the constellation Pisces.  This is your star sign; however, this reading does not take into account your star sign only.  Many factors are also considered, such as the positions of the moon and planets at the time of your birth.

A typical Pisces lives by their emotions more than logic.  Because of this, they usually have fantastic imaginations and creative ability.  Being the most sensitive sign in the zodiac, they are like a sponge, soaking up the emotions of others.  Love and romance are something most Pisces desire, as they are natural romantics.  Sometimes these emotions may be overwhelming which could lead to withdrawal or escapist-type behaviors.

We will now look deeper into your personality to see if you match this typical Pisces personality.  Not everyone will as every person is unique, just like this reading!

You have a deep connection with the deeper and darker sides of life such as death, the occult, taboos, and anything else that is unexplored or mysterious.  It is easy for you to ‘see through’ anything that is superficial; this includes situations and people. In fact, you really dislike anything fake or superficial.  You have an intense awareness of yourself which may lead to phases of self improvement and psychological change.  These changes to your personality are likely to happen over long periods of time, and quite out of public view.  This makes you a naturally complex and secretive person who appears to be rather mysterious to some.  At some point in your life you may be attracted to stock markets and banking.  Careers that can make use of your investigative and creative nature will be ideal for you.  You have powerful sexual feelings and desires that are long lasting.

While growing up, it is likely that your parents did not recognize your true needs. This is probably because your parents had many problems of their own, and expected you to be supportive of them (this paragraph could be moved to the home life and childhood subheading).

Throughout your life, you may have a sense of loneliness that is hard to explain; for example, you could be in a crowd of people and still feel lonely.

Emotions

You are an emotionally intense person who often feels the need for change when life starts to get boring.  There is great presence about you, even if you are shy.  Being very strong-headed, not many things scare or shock you.

Because you fear betrayal, it is important for your partners to be fully committed in your relationships. Once in a serious relationship with someone, you’re extremely loyal and protective.

You can see through people, judging their character and motivations accurately.  You can be fiercely competitive, especially with those of your own sex. You are fond of subjects like the occult and the paranormal.

You may have been born at a time when your mother experienced a crisis, or your birth may have been traumatic.  Your mother may be possessive and intense.

Love and Friendships

You are an original, open-minded, and inventive thinker who has many insights.  Always active, your mind thinks of many ideas, some which are rather inventive.  People may not always understand where you are coming from, as your thinking is so original and different.

You are not one to follow tradition and likely to rebel against it.  This leads to you having unusual ways of doing things.  For example, when you study, it is likely to be unusual in some way as you do not like to follow schedules.

The way you speak is witty and clever, and you also having a great sense of humor that is unique.  Practical jokes are something that really amuse you.  Being a good judge of character, your powers of observation are strong.  You enjoy intellectual debates with people.

You have a sparkle in your personality that produces many friends.  You have a romantic side that is cool, calm, and detached.  When it comes to love, you are unique, having a different outlook than most people.  You do not like to follow all the traditional rules when it comes to love, preferring to do things your own way.  This originality has probably led to your dating various types of people from all different kinds of backgrounds.  Also, you have little regard for what society, your family, or peers think of your relationships.

You are incredibly friendly, and this can lead to friends turning into lovers without you even knowing at first.  Most of your romantic encounters happen suddenly; some even happen in an unusual way.

An ideal partner for you would need to feel like a friend, and appreciate your unique way of doing things.  You want people to love you for your intellect, and to admire your visions.  You’re also attracted to unusual or unconventional relationships.

You learn a lot from the intellectual debates you have with people; bouncing ideas off them helps you make decisions and to see other points of view.  Communicating with people on a one-to-one basis is something you are very good at.

An ideal partner (these words are repeated above.  Therefore it should be deleted and modified) for you will need to be rather communicative and intellectually stimulating.  You can keep a conversation going, as you have many interesting things to say; however, if you do not get this in return, you are likely to become bored.  You probably enjoy talking about and analyzing other relationships.

Within you there is a passion to express yourself and to make a contribution to society. This is because you have an abundance of creative energy, likely to be in the form of artistic skills.

You are generous, playful, and warm, particularly with children, and in your romantic life.

Your sex drive is very powerful, and children may be conceived rather easily (this sentence could be moved to the sex and aggression subheading).

Naturally creative and inventive, you love to do things differently from most people.  Some of your hobbies are very unusual, which may seem weird to most people.

Romantic involvement occurs in sudden and unconventional ways, and breaks are also sudden and unexpected.  You are attracted to unusual, exciting, and creative partners.  As a teenager, you may have decided to date an older person.

If you have children, it is likely you raised them differently than how you were raised.  Any children you have are probably highly original and maybe even eccentric.

Forms of creativity that require much discipline may be difficult for you; this is because you require the freedom to be inventive.  For example, if you were leaning how to paint, it requires the practice of many techniques; this would be too tedious and boring for you.  The creative talents could be in the form of computer skills, fixing cars, or using technology.

At some point in your life, you may be inclined to invest or gamble.  Your approach is to buy and sell in a spontaneous manner, without thinking everything through.  Therefore, you can be very risky and should approach investing or gambling with much caution.

 Home life and Childhood

You have a strong attachment to your roots and childhood memories.  There were likely many difficulties or changes within your childhood, which has deeply affected you. Because of this you have a natural understanding of what makes a secure and harmonious home life, which is something you strongly desire.  It is likely you have had to change residences more than most people (most likely living near water).  Or maybe you simply feel the need to make many changes in your home.  At some point in your life, you may be interested in antiques, old houses, and researching your family tree.

There was, and will always be, a deep connection between you and your mother.

Throughout your life you have had many family confrontations, frequently having arguments with them, about them, or on their behalf.  You can be fiercely protective of your family too.  You might attempt to rule the roost on the home front, or you often take on a leadership role at home and with family.  Improving or fixing up your home is something you enjoy.

During your childhood, you were not an assertive person; however, your assertiveness definitely increases with age.   This often caused a difficult relationship between you.  Also, your mother was incredibly emotional and hot-tempered (this paragraph could be moved a few paragraphs above, as the mother is also mentioned there). 

Within you there is deeply buried anger (this sentence could be moved to the sex and aggression subheading).

It is possible you may choose not to marry (this sentence could be moved to the love and relationships subheading).

You might remember your childhood as one that lacked warmth and affection.  Much hardship has been experienced during your childhood upbringing, and your father may have appeared emotionally distant.

Also you were probably allocated duties and responsibilities around the home.  As an adult, you try to break free from the past and your family background, either physically or psychologically, or maybe both.  Once this is achieved, and you free yourself from your past memories, your personality is likely to bloom.

Acquiring your own secure and stable home may be a major goal in your life.

During your childhood you experienced a volcanic and isolated home life.  Maybe your father was emotionally distant, and would explode in a rage when he got angry.  Whatever the case, intense and shocking events in your childhood may still live in your memory.

Your mother was very protective of you, shielding you from any negative experiences.  However, this does not protect you in the long run, as you grow up insecure and fearing change.  (This paragraph could be grouped with the other paragraphs that mention the mother above).

Sex and Aggression

You are the type of person that gives 100% or nothing at all; this applies to every thing you do.  When you do give it your all, you have incredible will power and persistence.  This is the extreme part of your nature which also applies to your anger.  You keep your cool and your stability on the surface. Below the surface may be another story, filled with repressed anger ready to explode at any moment. When you’re in this state of mind, you are likely to become rather sarcastic and snappy with people.

You are also extreme when it comes to confrontation; sometimes you say nothing at all, and other times you go over the top.  You rarely lose control, but when you do, you stop at nothing to get more than even with someone.  The frightening display of the anger you show shocks people.

It is possible you have the ability to see through others, easily reading their true motives.

When it comes to sex, you are intensely passionate and sensual.  You are likely to be especially attractive to the opposite sex, whether or not you are physically attractive. You may be fascinated with sexuality in all its expressions; certainly your interest is always keen.  Your interest in sex may lead you to experiment sexually, trying many different things.  Even things that are considered socially or culturally unacceptable (taboos) may be of interest to you.

You’re a very loyal friend, but also a bitter enemy; betrayal is something you never forget.  You’re jealous and possessive of your sexual partners.

Deep down inside, there is a part of you that is kept secret; powerful emotions are kept under strict control, maybe even repressed.  This may have caused you many problems in your life, as your true personality is unable to be totally revealed to others.  Love relationships can be a fine example of this; revealing your true feelings to your partners may be very difficult.

On the more positive side, your powerful emotions give you much drive, determination, and endurance to achieve your goals.  If someone has annoyed or upset you, there is often a nagging desire to get even with them.  You may have obsessive tendencies.

Career

You seek professional status and recognition.  You want to see real results that others can point to as yours. With your fine organizational skills and step-by-step approach to tasks, there are many careers that you are suited to.

If you believe you are right, you will argue very hard for your point of view.  You enjoy taking responsibility and being in a position of authority. You work hard to gain the approval of authority figures.


Step 7 –Apply Aspect Modifications

Your interpretation in step 6 should be rather good by now.  However, we can choose to improve this accuracy further by applying the most important chart aspects.  For those of you that do not know, chart aspects are sensitive angles in a chart between celestial bodies such as the Sun, Moon and Planets.  Aspects can help you have extra confidence in interpretations you were not sure of in step 6.  Or it could highlight extra importance of certain interpretations that require more emphasis.

I like to make life simple, which is why I only consider the Conjunction, Trine and Square aspects.  Below I have analysed my most important aspects.  Although my chart has many aspects, I only consider ones within a certain amount of degrees as the most important.  I ignore aspects that fall outside my degree limits.

1.  Conjunctions

Conjunctions are when the Sun, moon or planets are next to each other in the chart.  I only take into account conjunctions that are within 1 degree.  Below are the conjunctions that are within a 1 degree orb, for my chart (in step 1):

Moon conjunct Mars (0.31 degrees)

The description below echos what was said in step 6, in subheadings ‘Emotions’ and ‘Sex and Aggression’.  Therefore those paragraphs can be edited slightly to also include parts of the paragraph below:

Description of Moon Conjunct Mars

You have strong emotions and feelings which influence your decisions. Once your anger has been aroused, you can display intense and frightening emotions. You are overly sensitive to the comments from others; your emotional anxiety can create a mental state where you imagine that others criticize or plot against you. Because you are so passionate, you have much energy at your disposal, you may try hard to prove yourself to others.  You can be very blunt and straightforward with people; others may not consider you very sympathetic. You are a very sexual person.

2.  Trines

Trines are when the Sun, moon or planets share the same element such as earth, air, fire or water.  This means they will be 120 degrees apart in the chart.  I only take into account trines that are within 2 degrees.  Below are the conjunctions that are within a 2 degree orb, for my chart (in step 1):

Sun Trine Pluto (1.09 degrees)

The description below echos some sentences in step 6, in subheadings ‘General Personality’.  Therefore those paragraphs can be edited slightly to also include parts of the paragraph below.  Sun Trine Pluto also reinforces the need for personal transformation and growth.  And to help people on a spiritual or psychological level.

Description of Sun Trine Pluto

You have a distinct intensity about you. Throughout your life, you undergo many periods of self-transformation; this is because of your ability to intensely self-analyze yourself. You have tremendous self-awareness. You do not like superficial people; in fact, you can actually ‘see through’ others, reading their true motives effortlessly. You are determined to uncover the truth, and may be obsessed to prove that something is wrong, and that things are not as they appear. You are very charismatic, and have the ability to make people do things for you without them being aware of it.

You are probably not scared of many things in your life. You enjoy and embrace growth, especially of the psychological kind. You love a good mystery, and are very good at solving them. You are most likely to feel you have some kind of “calling” or destiny in life. You readily assign meaning to what others might consider “ordinary” events.

Within you may be inner emotional tension; however, this is very under control. You possess tremendous power and strength. When you learn to make use of it, you can be one of the most effective, insightful, helpful persons around! You are usually quick to help others, not only with everyday tasks, but also on a spiritual or psychological level. Your insight is sharp and sometimes inspiring to others. You are a highly perceptive individual that is not easily upset or surprised in life.

At times, you can be intensely dissatisfied with your personal accomplishments and expressions of self. You put a lot of pressure on yourself regarding your own accomplishments.

There may be times in your life where you find it hard to express yourself; this causes you to hide your true personality from others. In fact, it is actually possible for a person to know you for years without ever truly seeing who you really are as a person, as you may choose not to reveal the real you.

3.  Squares

Squares are when the Sun, moon or planets share elements that are not compatible.  This means they will be 90 degrees apart in the chart.  I only take into account squares that are within 2 degrees.  Below are the conjunctions that are within a 1 degree orb, for my chart (in step 1):

Moon Square Mercury (1.25 degrees)

The description below offer something new, not mentioned in step 6.  As Moon square Mercury is talking about feelings, it would make sense to insert it into the ‘Emotions’ subheading in step 6.

Description of Moon Square Mercury
You are indecisive, spending much time weighing the pros and cons. This is because your feelings and thoughts are at odds. Easily expressing your thoughts is difficult, as you may not always want to share your true feelings with others. You can also be unsure about your feelings and how you should react in certain situations.

You may have a habit of talking way too much to people, and most of the time you will end up talking about your family history and domestic life. People enjoy your great sense of humor.

Mercury Square Mars (1.56 degrees)

The description below offer something new, not mentioned in step 6.  As Mercury square Mars is talking about intellect, it would make sense to insert it into the ‘Mind and Communications’ subheading in step 6.  Remember that some statements (such as the one below) can sound rather harsh or extreme.  It is the skill of an astrologer to decide how extreme certain aspects of their personality is.

Description of Mercury Square Mars
You have the capacity to be very clever and cunning, trying to take advantage of anyone if you get the chance. Your mind is alert, quick, and always ready for an argument. Your speech is sometimes too hasty and you lack tact. Your tongue is a sword that you use to lash out at other people when they have upset you or did something you did not like. You have a temper that can explode into swearing, name-calling, and general ranting and raving. You are a convincing and forceful speaker, and you have a way of bringing people over to your way of thinking; however, you are not especially receptive to the ideas and opinions of others. You need to better learn how to rationally and logically control your desires.

You are high-strung and have a lot of nervous energy; thus you find it hard to sit still for very long. You love working on several projects at the same time because it keeps you from getting bored, but you may have difficulty finishing the things you have started.
