At the exact minute of your birth, the astrological sign that is rising on the eastern horizon is designated the Ascendant or Rising Sign. The Ascendant is how you dawn on the world, how you present yourself to others. If someone were to guess your astrological sun sign, they would guess it based on what you show the world, which is your rising sign. Its the characteristics and personality traits that you put forth for all to see. Its the stained glass window that you project outward for the rest of your chart to flow through.
Those with Aries on the rising are typically driven, ground-breaking, impulsive, quarrelsome, self-centred, short-tempered, dominant, wilful, self-sufficient, watchful, good with your hands, and boastful, with a large amount of physical energy that must be expelled somehow. Your impulsiveness may lead to seemingly careless behaviour even if you have good intentions. Strongly independent, you rebel against anyone telling you what you should do. It would be beneficial for you to develop a more diplomatic way of communicating in addition to a bit of caution, as you may jump before thinking ahead and get yourself into sticky situations. Try to release your energy in a more positive way. Unfortunately, often when you are presented with a problem, you use force to try to mould it into the desired result, thinking that will-power alone will fix things. You must learn that brute force will not gain you the results you are hoping for, instead you will limit yourself, making matters worse and bulldozing over peoples feelings. You enjoy competitions of all sorts and can be a bit aggressive at times. Doing the same thing day in and day out bores you to bits but you must find a way to persevere in these circumstances as they are a necessary part of life. There is a tendency to dive into one thing only to leave it unfinished and start something fresh; complete the things you have begun rather than letting novelty temp you away from the hard work you have already put in. Your lesson may be to develop a more patient outlook. Aries is ruled by Mars and therefore its placement in your chart will be significant.
Shhh! When it comes to sex, Aquarius is not much for routine, nor for making things simple. Read all about Aquarius sexuality here.
If the planets symbolize the forces and energies that happen in different situations, then the aspects between the planets symbolize how these energies work together and integrate with each other. There are challenging and easy aspects between the planets and it is up to the individual to choose how they are going to utilize the aspect energies for a positive outcome. The aspects between planets are said to speak to each other. Depending on which planets are aspecting each other and the rest of the natal chart, will determine which planet is dominate and which is not in the aspect between them. But ultimately it is up to the individual to decide how they are going to use the aspects of planets in their chart with their free will, in a meaningful and productive way.
Emotionally you are fully charged and this intensity may have a negative impact on your health physically. Try to pace yourself and start to do one thing at time. It is not always easy to share living quarters with you as you often lack patience, become easily agitated with others, and behave in a grouchy manner. It is almost as though you go LOOKING for arguments. A bit like a spoiled child, if you do not get your way, you show your displeasure with fits of rebellious resistance. It would be beneficial for you to keep physically active and disperse the enormous amount of restlessness within you. You are naturally assertive and spirited, easily fighting for the things that you believe in or for others that are being taken advantage of. However, you must develop self-restraint if you are to reach your full potential. Competition spurs you on and you are driven to beat out all others in the game of your choosing or even just in general. Sometimes attracting with honey is far more conducive to accomplishing your goals than using brute force; be more diplomatic when interacting with people. You work diligently, bravely, and energetically. Try to be more lenient on yourself and others when something goes array as no one is perfect, not even you. Sometimes you have built up such a name for yourself that you do a complete turn-around and laze about, expecting your previous work will tide you over. Your anger may be explosive at times, especially when you are wounded on an emotional level, and you must find a way to restrain yourself. Try to think through your feelings before they take over. Your general lack of patience and constant rushing about makes you susceptible to accidental injuries, particularly involving heat or sharp objects. You can be reckless because you do not plan your actions ahead. You have a negative reaction to any sort of perceived restriction on you and can be a bit of a rule-breaker. As a leader, it is imperative that you curb your dominance or you will be seen as a tyrannical dictator rather than a leader. Vengeful thoughts are not healthy for you and you need to release your anger towards others for their offenses. It is likely that you will be wasteful with your financial resources and can be prone to dishonesty.
You have a tendency towards being self-centred, emotionally reserved, unconcerned with the feelings of others, afraid, worrying, and self-doubting. You are ambitious, willing to do anything to achieve your aims. Exhibiting caution, you carefully, dutifully wade through life, never skirting your responsibilities. Life is a serious business to you and you work yourself harder than you should at times; attempt a less sombre approach and it might surprise you. Rather than trying something new, you enjoy engaging in what you are accustomed to. You often feel as though you are inadequate, causing you to be lonely and insecure. Anything you attempt to succeed at must be bought with due diligence; you will spend a long while working towards your goals before they are achieved. Interruptions may postpone your plans often, unfortunately. You may also have trouble with the paternal parental figure in your life or people who are in charge. This placement can create considerable challenges for you, however it does bestow you with perseverance and the ability to wait as long as is needed to achieve your goals. It would be beneficial for you to learn how to be giving to others without looking for something in return. Past life karma insists that you act in kindness and generosity in this lifetime, as you had been too self-interested and uncaring in the past. Fate is forcing you to develop ways to work with others in a caring manner.
In addition to the above, you must find a way to conquer your critical nature. You expect nothing less than perfect from yourself and other people, causing you to criticise yourself sternly when you fall short in any way. Try to be a little more realistic in your expectations as they are often not possible to achieve. Your high expectations create a lot of tension and irritability for you. Sometimes you believe that other people are trying to limit you, when the truth is that you are subconsciously drawing in these negative situations to teach you that you must practice tolerance and ease up on yourself and other people. The intent of your tribulations is to show you that you do not need to take life so seriously.
You believe in yourself and in your skills to achieve the things you set out for, feeling that you are capable of withstanding any challenge you should encounter in your life. You are ready and able to overcome whatever you need to in order to survive, even if this means changing your own tendencies to do so. A strong will coupled with great discipline promise that you will rise to great heights. You have an excellent ability to persevere against all odds and can be quite resourceful as well. These skills are put to good use when you make the necessary alterations to the outdated systems in your path. You will fight for justice, whether for yourself or when you see others being treated unfairly. You are a leader with a superb capacity for managerial duties. Others turn to you when they need guidance and you put them on the correct path. Very dedicated, you go after your objectives with complete focus, intensely moving forward in an almost obsessive fashion. Those who skirt away from their troubles tend to rub you the wrong way as you are inclined to see them as weak and find it difficult to give much weight to their views, concerns, or to them as a person. You firmly believe that your fate is what you make it and hold others to the same standard. Very perceptive, your intuition quickly picks up on the truth of a situation. You are aware of the destruction that pessimism can cause and therefore passionately and diligently work to unravel these thoughts, applying the same conviction and purpose that you would with everything you do. Those around you intuit your strength and capabilities, treating you as though you have already reached the top.

Manual labour is probably appealing to you and you may not have a preference in which hand you use with more skill. For you communication is done not only orally but also through hand gestures. This placement can bestow an aptitude for science or mathematics. However, a quick brain tends to facilitate a quick mouth too, and it would do you well to watch yours. Administering some diplomacy and thinking ahead before blurting out your first thought would also be beneficial for you, as you can be quite blunt. You enjoy friendly teasing and convey many of your jests via sarcastic remarks. You communicate your views forcefully and directly, in a straightforward, no-nonsense approach. You enjoy leading others and converse easily and extensively with others, even if you havent a clue about what you are discussing. You also like to find the faults in other peoples debates. Your assertive communication can at times rub others the wrong way as you often say too much, too powerfully. Due to your strong communication, you would do well working in sales or law. You can be very persuasive because of your powerful communication style. Try your hand at writing critique or dark comedy, as you may find a hidden gift. You tend to be self-sufficient, dedicated, brave, energetic, and love challenging your mind. However, make sure to take a moment to reflect on what you wish to say before you say it, as you can easily hurt others through your tactless mocking.
You are generally positive and full of hope. Acquiring knowledge throughout your life is very valuable to you. You have a good head on your shoulders and are skilled at long-term thinking and strategy. Travelling is particularly beneficial for you as it will open your mind and teach you how to understand yourself, others, and the world more thoroughly. Usually prone to seeing things on a grand scale, you may tend to overlook details, preferring to pass those tasks onto others who are more interested in them. You are likely to be good at public speaking and people tend to believe in and support you as they intuitively feel that you are an honourable person who will do them no harm. Genuine and ethical, you would never purposefully betray or mislead others. However, you are prone to embellish or amplify your tales slightly in order to make a good impression on others.

You may express yourself in an eloquent and clever manner, but you tend to keep to shallow waters, never venturing into the deeper emotions that some may be fond of. You are also not likely to stick with anything for very long, have trouble remembering things, and do not have a stable pattern of thought. You are indecisive, anxious, and prone to overthinking. Your high-strung nature can rub people the wrong way at times. You enjoy talking about people when they are not around and can spin a story to better suit your needs at the moment. You are interested in where others have been, how they feel, what they think, and why. You listen to them and people naturally divulge their private thoughts to you when they may not be so open with someone else. Previous experiences are particularly fascinating to you. Historical events in both your life and the lives of others are important to you and you readily share and listen to these tales. Archaeological or genealogical topics draw you in, as well as anything pertaining to myths. You feel almost as though you are reliving these experiences yourself.
You must find equilibrium between your mental state and your emotional state as you tend to swing wildly from one to the other. Your thinking is sharp but unfortunately so is your tongue, and this creates hurt where there did not need to be any. Try to think before you speak and form your words in a more diplomatic fashion. Use both your logical thinking with your sensitive emotions. Your nervousness and inner tension can create frustration for you internally that you often take out on others. You crave genuine care and understanding.
This placement can create a few alternate possibilities as you will either be prone to breaking the law, be too afraid to take even sensible risks, come to be extremely co-dependent on others, incorporate severe power-hungry tendencies where you try to rise at all costs, have uncontrollable violent outburst, or be lazy, deceitful, disloyal, cruel, cold, intolerant, ruthless, spiteful, odd, or a threat to others safety. You are plagued with internal strain and are constantly fighting yourself as to whether you wish to act dutifully or be free to do as you may. There may be trouble with collaborating with others, as this causes you great tension. This tension may be a result of your desire to please others when youd rather be doing things differently or from not wanting to do what you should be doing. It would be easier if you would get your duties out of the way as quickly as possible so that you may concentrate on the things youd rather do. Anger is easily triggered in you and you can become quite difficult with little warning. It is imperative that you learn to accept others for the unique individuals that they are, as this is only fair. Try to foster forgiveness and let go of past slights. Find a way to release the pent up feelings you carry inside slowly rather than exploding uncontrollably when you cannot keep them in any longer.
You are self-sufficient, unconventional, open-minded, unusual, and a bit of a rebel. This placement boosts your ego though may also create selfish behaviour and inability to discipline yourself. Your disposition can change quickly from one thing to another and you may feel as though you are an outsider. There is a difficulty in sticking to one project until completion, as you move rapidly between one task to another, unable to focus your energy. Unreliable at best, others feel as though they cannot trust you to keep your word. You tend to act on impulses, trying to channel your inner tension and nervousness. You may be accident-prone due to your careless actions and lack of patience. Changes in your life happen often and suddenly; the unpredictability tries to teach you spiritual wisdom. You may be interested in technology or mystical and astrological subjects, though are unable to stand by them for very long. Independence to live your life the way you please is of utmost importance to you and you strongly desire to venture out into new experiences and random adventures. There is something inside of you that urges you to challenge convention by behaving in eccentric, sometimes shocking ways. You strive to alter whatever you come across, regardless of whether or not you actually have a superior plan. Others find you strange and you may feel as though you are an alien living among a different species. However, this does not seem to faze you, rather it inspires you further. You can be selfish and must learn to consider other peoples needs and feelings. Try to pay attention to, and truly absorb, what other people are saying before you come to conclusions. Your mind is very active and you need constant new stimulation otherwise you lose interest quickly; challenges are always welcome as they keep your brain busy. Your intellect is well developed though you may wish to work on your emotional intelligence. In your mind, you are correct and others just arent. Develop a way to monitor your urges, rather than acting thoughtlessly.
You are confident, driven, and enthusiastic. You are of the mindset that if you try hard enough to achieve a goal, you will eventually do so. There is an awareness of when things should be done and an intuition regarding what methods would be effective, and which ones would not be. Competition can be fun for you and you remain cheerful throughout the challenge. However, this competition is mostly done on your own, as you like to push yourself farther than you have before. Revenge is not something that you usually engage in as you prefer to let go of whatever wrongs others have done you.

Being active and out in nature appeals to your adventurous spirit. If you could develop self-discipline, you are likely to do well in sporty activities. You exude positivity and greet the world with enthusiasm. Money comes easily to you and therefore you are likely to waste it too readily. You give of yourself and your possessions freely.

When times are tough, you are still able to maintain your optimism and continue to be kind and considerate towards others.
Instinctively you are distrustful of the world around you and highly fascinated with mysteries that you attempt to solve. In your quest to uncover these secrets, you will delve down to the deepest and darkest caverns if need be. Subjects involving sexuality, life and death, spiritual rebirth, the healing arts, or mysticism are particularly interesting in your opinion.

Your viewpoints are strongly held and you are easily able to sway others to your way of thinking when you choose to. In fact, you are likely to become obsessed with some of your most tightly-held views, stubbornly clinging to them against all odds. The same sort of tunnel-vision occurs when you find something that you are truly fascinated with. Be mindful that you give heed to other peoples opinions as you can gain significant knowledge from doing so. Inwardly you can be high-strung and tense, making patience difficult for you to come by and creating irritable moods. Try to give your brain some time to relax every day.
You often feel as though others are out to cause you harm somehow and you succumb easily to paranoia because of this. Your intensity regarding your views and opinions can be more than many people can handle and it would do you well to consciously tone things down a bit. Develop more tolerance for those who see things differently than you do, instead of going into a smug rant at the first sign of disagreement. You cannot be right at all times and it would beneficial for you to accept that others may indeed be correct some of the time. Try not to criticise a concept before fully thinking it through.

The Planets in astrology symbolize what is being addressed. They behave as actors in a production. What is happening on stage? The signs in astrology are the way that the actors behave on stage.

The signs describe in detail how the actor might react, behave or conduct themselves.
Aquarians are typically social, unique, sensitive, open-minded, unconventional, unusual, self-sufficient, logical, ready to lend a helping hand, and they require a great deal of personal freedom to explore (learn about compatibility with Aquarius here). However, they may also be cold, detached, difficult to pin down, blunt, defiant, stiff, alternative, extreme, weird, fickle, and random. An Aquarius will enjoy working on projects that will incorporate innovation and require applying unbiased methodology.
Aquarians enjoy informing others of the many things they have learned in order to benefit humanity. Being a part of a group and involved in team work is where Aquarius feels most at home. They enjoy aiding others in a way where those they help can develop self-sufficiency.
Aquarians can be a bit contradictory; they are out-going though removed, they are caring though aloof. This detached manner does not necessarily indicate that the Aquarius is unconcerned though. It is more so that an Aquarius is likely to be interested in humanity on a grand scale, rather than just one person. Aquarians do not require much in the way of ego boosting, they are happy to keep out of the limelight, though they are undaunted if they happen to find themselves the centre of attention; they tend to be disconnected from their egos.
Transforming old-fashioned, conventional ideas into something fresh and different is exhilarating to an Aquarius. They can be excellent at seeing advancements that others may be blind to, and though they are idealistic, can hold great wisdom within. Their fondness regarding their social circle can inspire them to try to positively influence or change the lives of those around them for the better. However, at times the very people they try to aid do not see their intentions and rebel against their efforts. Often Aquarians are progressive, however at times they can simply be nonconformists.
Aquarians can be diligent workers though they may not always have the get-up-and-go required to complete their endeavours to the end and may tend to forfeit before truly getting off the ground. Mentally they are logical, methodical thinkers, analysing the data before them and easily arriving at the truth of the matter. Aquarians can be viewed as absent-minded professors, working with large sets of data to invent something profound, yet sometimes forgetting the essentials.
They are typically well-liked and popular and do not involve themselves with shallow chatter or become upset over trivial matters. Aquarians may prefer to keep the atmosphere harmonious, not likely to engage in disputes unless they are needed to support an important viewpoint or idea. They will also be the first to stick up for the weak, minority, or the underdog. Aquarians are often so open to new concepts that they will become frustrated with people who refuse to at least listen.
There is a built in desire to stand out from the usual crowd somehow, and this causes Aquarians to often say or do outrageous things just to get a rise out of others. Though Aquarians prefer to keep an open schedule, they can adhere to a routine if they feel it is truly necessary. However, time management is not a natural talent of theirs and they may not always show up at the designated time.
Aquarians do not enjoy being treated as objects to possess; because they typically give others a large amount of freedom, they would like theirs to be respected as well. Due to Aquarians being disinterested in how others see them, they are unlikely to judge others.
In romantic relationships, Aquarians tend to prefer a partner that will engage them in intelligent conversation and provide mental stimulation. Marriage is not something that a typical Aquarius takes lightly as they prefer to have their freedom and often shun commitments. However, once an Aquarius does commit, they will likely stick to their decision. Though they may be reserved in expressing their affection with the loved one, especially if not in a private place, they can be very devoted and trustworthy partners.
You quickly pick up on the vibes and energy of those around you, absorbing either positive or negative emotions. This may be the reason your emotions fluctuate wildly and why you may be cheerful and happy one moment, and grumpy and brooding the next. It is imperative that you develop a way to either discipline these fluctuations or find a positive outlet for them. You feel a great desire to care for others. At times your emotions or thoughts may seem illogical to those around you due to your inability to articulate them rationally. Those closest to you must be understanding of your many moods and of your need to isolate yourself on occasion. You easily empathise with others and often know what they are feeling without them needing to say it outright. Any offense will be taken to heart and while you may let the person off the hook, you will always remember what has transpired. Feeling safe and secure is a necessity to you, particularly in your home environment and with those closest to you. It would be beneficial for you to trust your gut instincts as they are usually accurate; you may even have premonitions. When something is important to you, you are likely to hold tightly to it. Your maternal parental figure has probably had a significant impact on your life and this impact may continue through your entire life. You prefer keeping out of the limelight but will certainly stand up for the people you care for. The tendency towards sentimentality may be a problem as you dislike throwing anything away; each object has a memory attached to it that you do not wish to let go of. Try to remember that what has passed will always stay in your heart regardless of the possessions you keep. You have an excellent memory but may need to excuse other peoples mishaps and move past them.
Mentally you are reasonable, logical, sombre, self-controlled, impartial, sensible, and clear-headed; fanciful assertions do not sway you. You need factual data before you can get behind a concept. You are naturally sceptical, though at times this makes you pessimistic. You will tend to tackle challenges in a practical way, keeping a cool head regardless of the situation. As long as you remain interested in a subject, you can put forth great levels of focus and to achieve the outcome you desire. Detail-oriented, you are unlikely to forget what most people would over-look or deem insignificant. Your serious approach to life may come across to others as humourless, dull, or unhappy and you usually have a good deal going on mentally. Your mind is meticulous, controlled, and well-organised which contributes to a good business sense as well as an ability for administrative tasks. Forward-thinking, you have an excellent talent for strategy and can easily devise a scheme for successfully reaching long-term goals. You require a certain amount of seclusion to consolidate your thoughts or engage in solitary activities; you make a great student. You understand that time is a valuable commodity and therefore do not waste yours when you can be achieving something more meaningful.
Venus naturally craves partnerships, socialising, warmth, and love, while Aries is direct, commanding, and a strong leader. These two combined will bestow you with a tendency towards pursuing your relationships with great fervour. Your emotions are quickly ignited and you enthusiastically take charge in social situations and romantic endeavours. You decide what you want and you go get it. However, be mindful not to pursue interests only for the sake of pursuing them and not because you truly desire them; you often discard the object of your desire once the chase has ended and you have completed your conquest. Therefore, it is likely that your romantic affairs begin in an intense burst of exhilaration and passion, only to temper off into a pale remnant of what they once were. You will always find new pursuits to master, and you will chase them as if going into battle; nothing will dissuade you. The most negative trait that Venus possesses is the tendency towards people pleasing and becoming overly accommodating for the sake of harmony. Therefore you may find that with this aspect you seek out partners that will insist you accommodate their needs and wishes, forcing you to put your own aside. An Aries Venus placement insists that you are a leader, though do not control, that you are accommodating, though not a doormat. You are self-sufficient and have a spontaneous style towards romantic involvements. You enjoy competition and may become quarrelsome only for the sake of having a short-lived thrill. You may need to be mindful of the consequences your actions have on others and develop consideration for their needs, instead of always looking out for yourself. Try also to cultivate patience, as your tendency towards haste can become a major obstacle for you.
You have an intense drive for respect, power, and success. Often taking the role of leader as you find it difficult to be controlled by others. Mars in Capricorn can create an individual who throws around their power, mercilessly trampling others to get ahead. You are effective, diligent, coordinated, determined, reasonable, persistent, and willing to do whatever it takes to reach your goals. You direct your efforts towards tangible achievements. You work hard and have a great deal of patience; you are able to sacrifice present luxuries for future success. Dutiful and meticulous in your projects, you may need to be mindful of your tendency to over-work yourself. However, you are more likely to stick to traditional tactics, working slow and steady, rather than taking a risk; you will only invest yourself in a sure thing so that all of your hard work will not go to waste. You do not count on karma to get to where you need to be, you like to make it on your own merit. Naturally astute with a good head on your shoulders, you have an excellent business sense. You are driven, self-sufficient, reliable, accountable, and persevering. It may take you a bit longer to acquire knowledge, but when you do grasp something, you comprehend it thoroughly. You utilise your energy in an efficient manner and accomplishing your goals is of extreme importance to you. However, there is an inner tension that may contribute to a frustration and bitterness towards perceived slights. It would be beneficial for you to develop a way to relieve these tensions in constructive ways and let go of the past.
You strive to benefit humanity using hands-on, concrete methods and materials. As an appreciation for your efforts, you prefer to be compensated with possessions; just saying the words is not enough for you, you want something tangible. You can be quite giving if you believe sharing will bring about the circumstances you desire. With a tendency towards over-indulgence, you may need to take extra care to curb your cravings. The views you hold are not easily changed and you will usually need large amounts of hard facts before you will be convinced of anything. Disease and physical discomfort are likely to be worries for you. Material assets find their way to you, though you must be cautious about how you use them or they will prove to be troublesome for you. Weight gain may also be a challenge for you due to your appetite for tasty treats. It will be beneficial for you to learn to restrict your indulgence in sensual pleasures.
A strong leader, with excellent administrative and managerial capabilities; you know when to be tactful. You are independent, traditional, well-organised, and proficient. You tend to be more reserved emotionally, seeming to others as aloof and uncaring. Affection is important to you, though you do not know how to go about acquiring or expressing it, instead you remove yourself from others. You feel a sense of obligation essential when love is present, and you find yourself preferring to do something for someone or present them with gifts, rather than giving them what theyd really like, yourself. However, there are times when you can be harsh, temperamental, and envious; you must be mindful not to use dishonest tactics when realising your goals. You prefer to be respected for being effective and proficient. In health matters, you are susceptible to diseases of the heart.
The Planets in astrology symbolize what is being addressed. They behave as actors in a production. What is happening on stage? The Houses in astrology are the stage. They ask the question where? Where is the action? In the home, in health, in the career or in the marriage, to name a few. The Houses tell the story of where the action is happening, what type of people are involved and what sort of environment it is.
It is likely that your aspirations are quite high, though you either prefer for these aims to somehow be of use in a group setting or you swing to the other end and are unconcerned with what a group would desire, instead looking out for only your own wishes. It is easy for you to acquire friends in high stations. You tend to be dutiful, open-minded, and a bit of a philanthropist, preferring to achieve social acceptance than power. You have an affinity for working with groups and often take the position as leader for group events as you are an excellent coordinator.
Family ties are important to you in this placement. You often search for and enjoy collecting possessions that tie to you to where you came from, a way of clinging to your past. Family relations and your home life instil a deep sense of personal security for you and there is likely a strong influence from the parental figures in your life. Your living location may change frequently as you search for an ideal location to put down roots. In your career, there will be an emphasis on things to do with the home; you may even work from home or create a home-like environment in your office as this will allow you to feel comfortable and secure.
Written or spoken communication may be part of your career path as you have an excellent talent for articulating your thoughts, and others are likely to take notice of it. You are very mentally active and physically agile, often being thrown into situations where you must make use of these skills. There is a tendency to be a Jack-of-all-trades and it would be difficult for you to choose only one type of career. Traveling or teaching may be part of your career path.
Rather independent, you prefer spending time alone and often withdraw from social contact. You enjoy doing what you love in private, and may be prone to secret love affairs. Be mindful not to get carried away with substance use or sensual pleasures, as this can destroy you. With an inherent empathy towards others, you are always happy to come to anothers aid. It is likely that you can be taken advantage of by those that pretend to be worse off than they actually are. You are disinterested in what society believes success should be. What you most desire is to comprehend a deeper sense of purpose in your life. Rarely do you express your true emotions to others. It is probable that you are interested in fortune-telling, premonitions, new age topics, and the like.
You are assertive and highly motivated to achieve in your career. You aspire to reaching the top and it is likely that you will, as you have great administrative and managerial capabilities. You prefer to be the reason for your own success, leading yourself rather than following others. Self-sufficient and goal oriented, you may encounter some tension with those in higher positions at work, your parents, or other authority figures. You are best suited for working in an environment where the challenges vary, rather than being stuck doing the same thing day in and day out.
Optimistic and self-assured, you are unusually prosperous financially. Material gains seem to just fall into your lap with little effort and most would consider you lucky in this area. It is unlikely that you have ever had to suffer from lack of having your material needs met. It would be wise for you to use your superb financial instincts to invest, as you easily inspire faith and confidence in others. It is likely that those in advantageous positions will reach out to assist you monetarily at one point or another to help you actualise your dreams. In addition, try to be mindful of a tendency towards over-indulgence with lavish cuisine, as you are prone to extravagance in this area.
This is a difficult placement in regards to your love relationships as they tend to be emotionally distant and repressive. You may find that you harbour feelings of not being appreciated enough or truly loved. You would like to be viewed more favourable by your peers but often your demeanour can stifle these social interactions; you may come across as detached and uncaring. It is important to you that others have a respect for you and you often feel tension because of this. You find that often you are only interested in pursuing things that are useful somehow; this extends to how you spend your free time. You find it very difficult to express affection and praise to your children and they may view you as oppressive. Children can feel like a heavy weight to you until you learn how to open up to them in ways other than gift giving; do not worry so much about how you are coming across and try to let convey the inner warmth you have inside.
A traditional partner is not for you, as you prefer someone a bit more eccentric and unusual. Neither you nor your romantic partners want to walk on the same path as the general public, but rather create your own. It is likely that you or your partner enjoy surprising others with your unconventional preferences. Personal independence is an important factor in your relationship, and commitments may feel unnecessary to you. You may even seek out partners who are unavailable as these romantic involvements promise no commitment from the start.
Due to the unconventional nature characteristic to most of your relationships, your partnerships may baffle both yourself and others. Unique yet fascinating people tend to surround you.
It is unwise for you or your partner to attempt to dominate one another, as this will only cause problems. Try to find a balance between your independence and the time you and your partner spend with one another; you may both require much space for a relationship to work. Easily feeling trapped by any restrictions stemming from your partnership, you must be given a great deal of room to grow. Without this freedom, you may quickly and suddenly opt out of the partnership. Long-distance relationships may appeal to you, as this sort of partnership has a more relaxed feel to it and you may continue to live your life as you please.
Mental stimulation is an important quality that you desire from your partner, as you like a challenge. You also prefer that information is readily exchanged between you and your partner. You are most interested in an original individual who can be artistic, sociable, and not afraid to go against the crowd. An intelligent, eccentric wild child with a great deal of charm may be just your ticket.
It may be easier for you to engage in platonic relationships than something as involved as marriage, though when you do decide to settle down, you expect an idealistic partnership where you and your significant other are good friends. In fact, friendship is probably how you found your mate. However, this placement denotes an inclination towards frivolous affairs that provide a short-lived thrill but will cause conflict with your significant other.
One of the greatest challenges in your partnerships happens when personal growth occurs at a greater pace in one partner than in the other. This growth may be so extreme that the person that entered the marriage originally no longer exists.
In order to succeed in your relationship, both parties must allow one another to be independent beings and be supportive of each others need for space.
You may find your dreams reveal your future as your intuition is exceptionally strong; you are likely to experience premonitions. Very receptive to the energies of others, you may need to protect your heightened sensitivity. Dishonesty will cause your material assets to degrade as a way to demonstrate to you that happiness does not come from possessions. Be honest in all of your relations, especially with finances and their institutions. You have a particular interest in healing others through use of the hands, and also in death and what comes afterwards.
Your work environment may bring forth great personal change in you, transforming you in some vital way. Work related matters and employee labour relations may be something you engage in readily at your workplace. You have high expectations for both yourself and fellow employees and must be careful not to become too rigid, unconsciously critical, and commanding when leading others. There is a tendency for you to work yourself until you cannot physically withstand more, often from sheer determination. Talented in analysis and problem solving, you would be well suited as a detective or psychologist; you have an innate ability to bring to light peoples deepest concerns. This placement focuses on health and healing, whether this be positively expressed as a talent in healing others, or negatively expressed as becoming obsessed with your own well-being. Your body may be more susceptible to issues regarding the colon or deep rooted infections.
