Henry Seltzer's Notes on the Candidates


 

The chart of Sarah Palin. She has a good dose of Uranus herself, having it on her Second House cusp and in strong aspect to her natal Moon (see chart). This explains the rebel in her, and her suitability as an exemplar of what McCain calls a "maverick" attitude. She also has Uranus in almost exact bi-quintile aspect to Mercury. Both of these aspects from Uranus to personal planets help to explain her terrific sense of humor, as revealed when she commented that she enjoyed Tina Fey's portrayal of herself "with the sound turned off," and even more so with her actual appearance on SNL, with Tina Fey, on a recent weekend. With a Sun-Mars-Saturn conjunction in the Seventh House she also has a strongly conservative side as evidenced in the actual positions that she takes.

Sarah Palin's Chiron opposes Pluto, which has the delineation of potential abuse of power, of which she has been accused, and also opposite Uranus, showing uneasiness with the iconoclast status that she also enjoys. The reading in the TimePassages software includes: "You are both very unconventional yet also somewhat unsure of yourself in your very departure from the rest of society, so that you may surprisingly show flashes of a conservative side. You have a brilliant mind, and are undoubtedly a witty conversationalist, although with a slightly erratic tendency to switch topics arbitrarily."

Chart Patterns

Tripod

You have the planetary pattern known as the 'tripod' shape. With your planets divided into three distinct groups, your personality tends to exhibit a considerable degree of self-sufficiency. You have the same characteristics as a Grand Trine personality type. There is a strong astrological element in your chart which is at your disposal, either Fire, Earth, Air or Water, depending on the element where your planets are concentrated.


Important Features

Saturn in Aquarius (25° Aqu 12') Saturn in the Seventh House

Saturn in the Seventh House (or sign) gives a pleasant personality with a deepening and concentration, or blockage, in the power to relate to others. You are easy to get along with, and you usually do well in the areas of partnerships and business relationships, being possessed of good judgment, diplomacy and tact. You are very self-reliant and yet also experience a sense of isolation in life, owing to subconscious fears regarding truly giving yourself to another. You may feel strongly the potential for being hurt in this way. You may look for a partner who is responsible, possibly older and wiser, and whom you therefore consider safe. You may also experience sorrow or difficulty in marriage. You are challenged to rise above this circumstance, which can become an opportunity for inner integration and balancing. Your lesson is to make better use of relationship on an inner level as a vehicle for self-discipline in order to further your own growth as an individual.

The following applies to your generation as a whole as well as to you personally:

Saturn in Aquarius (or the eleventh house) gives a socially adept and responsible individual, with a deepening and concentration, or a blockage, with regard to participation in groups and around causes. You are careful, conscientious and humane. You are gentle and strong, apt to be fairminded and can appear at times impersonal, or cold and unloving. Group participation is quite important to you, and you place so much emphasis on it that you may have difficulties in feeling as though you belong to a particular group, or you may draw back from friendships from a fear of not being accepted. You have good powers of concentration, and place much importance on the betterment of society through constructive communal activity. You may be devoted to a spiritual discipline. Your lesson is to transform your narrow view of social acceptance on a personal level into a broader vision, in which you can meaningfully participate, of a more sharing society, one beyond the present level of a divided humanity.

Sun in Aquarius (22° Aqu 19' 35") Sun in the Seventh House

The Sun represents your will and purpose, your sense of vitality, and your evolving higher Self. In Aquarius it is Fixed-Air, and rules the circulation and the ankles. Your ruling planets are Uranus and Saturn. You have a rebellious nature, and are eccentric, spontaneous and original. Aquarians are forward thinking and detached, and can seem conservative though they really are not very much so. You are scientifically minded and logical, and confident in manner. You are likely to be years ahead of your time in the way you think. You can also appear to be more involved with your work than with other people, although you truly value social contact. You are intuitive, imaginative and inventive, and inclined to take chances, especially in the service of your goals. You can be quite noble in your deepest nature, but you also may come across as critical and demanding. Your highest purpose is found in aligning yourself with the advancement of social and humanitarian ideals.

The Sun in the Seventh House represents a concentration of the vital force to relate with others in partnership. You gravitate towards others, who serve to reflect your deeper self back to you. You prefer working together with another person, rather than strictly on your own. You enjoy developing the exchange of interpersonal expression and joint efforts. You have an intuitive sense of what partnership requires, and strive to become more aware of the inner needs of two people relating with one another on a committed basis. You are very aware of the other as a mirror for your own selfhood. You sense yourself as part of a unit rather than merely an isolated ego. You may keenly feel the need for an intimate partner to flesh out your unconscious areas of self, and you may alternate between losing your sense of self from within relationship to finding your sense of identity and power in that way. You benefit from recognizing that everything you seek in another is really an important part of yourself, and that being involved with others on an interpersonal level is a means of exploring your own basic nature.

Mars in Aquarius (23° Aqu 27') Mars in the Seventh House

Mars in the Seventh House (or sign) gives a sensitive, and emotionally impressionable nature with an inclination to get very involved with other people. You are likely to have great charm and poise, and an ongoing attraction to love and romance. You can be a persuasive talker, and enjoy getting your own way, although you also are truly committed to making sure all parties in a dispute receive just and fair treatment, and will go out of your way to make sure that they get it. You are potentially a rash and ardent lover, and you may marry early. You are likely to seek an active partner, one who will match your own fiery independence that is a part of your basic nature you may not always show. You might need to work through quarreling with others as a way of standing up to being overly influenced by them, and benefit from exploring a greater degree of self-reliance. You also may be attracted to the idea of partnerships generally, as a way of life. You profit from cultivating moderation and objectivity in your dealings with others.

Mars in Aquarius (or the eleventh house) gives a freedom loving, socially oriented and idealistic personality. You can be abrupt and eccentric in speech and action, and may have a tendency to jump to conclusions. You have your own way of looking at things, and are also stubborn in your outlook, so that it may be difficult to get you to change your opinions. You are enterprising and ambitious, with a future-oriented and scientific mentality. The unknown possibility excites you more than conventional activity, which you may consider slightly boring, and you therefore tend to invest your energies in the upcoming event not yet realized. You get along well with groups of people, but you may be less comfortable one on one. You may need to find a balance between too great a focus on personal issues, and on the other hand directing all your activities outside yourself, toward social and humanitarian goals.

Jupiter in Aries (16° Ari 43') Jupiter in the Ninth House

Jupiter in the Ninth House (or sign) gives you an out-going and optimistic nature, very idealistic and high-minded. You are freedom loving, and enjoy travel and adventure. You possess an innate sense of spiritual possibility in ordinary life, and are especially fond of being in natural surroundings. You tend to seek opportunity through education and exploring new horizons, and are constantly expanding your repertoire of skills and knowledge. You are generally quite successful at what you do. You like to take chances, and do not care much about security or material rewards. Any work that motivates your ideals will capture your undivided attention, for as long as those ideals are motivated, and not longer. You are truly devoted to the principles of higher education, metaphysics and philosophy. Being so aware of the big picture may allow you to miss out on the details, and you benefit from grounding yourself from time to time in the practical considerations of your situation.

Jupiter in Aries (or the first house) gives you a personality strong in self-esteem. You have expansiveness and abundant energy, and are likely to have good luck with the material side of life. You love freedom and independence, and possess an extremely optimistic nature. You see possibility in everything, a person for whom the glass is definitely "half-full" rather than "half-empty". A feeling of can-do is therefore an important component of your self-image. This is valuable for you, and gets you far in life, but you should beware of letting this faith in your powers express itself as mere egotism, especially in the case of challenging aspects between Mars and Jupiter in your chart. Your enthusiasm may need to be tempered with a healthy sense of limitation.

Neptune in Scorpio (17° Sco 50') Neptune in the Fourth House

Neptune in the Fourth House (or sign) gives an emotionally sensitive and loving personality. You have powerful psychic tendencies. You were no doubt strongly influenced by your home life, and may tend to idealize these formative experiences. You may have suffered by being let down in some way by your same-sex parent, or there may have been an unsettled early home life leading to deep-rooted feelings of insecurity. As an adult, you may not be fully at home in your family setting, and may seek a vague and undefined sense of tribal connection with other people in your life, as if to make up for this. Your home is also quite important to you, and you may change residences frequently in search of your ideal environment. You could perhaps suffer a loss of family, or part of your family connection, leading to potentially painful realizations. These realizations may in turn lead you to a more depersonalized and spiritual basis for the concept of family life.

The following applies to your generation as a whole as well as to you personally:

Neptune in Scorpio (or the eighth house) gives an individual with great personal magnetism. You have a subtle intuition and an unusually clear insight into the motivations of others. You also may unconsciously try to control other people, or act in somewhat unreliable ways. You have an ideal of self-sacrifice in partnership with others, and tend to give more than you receive, which can lead in the end to resentment on your part, or just disappearing. Otherworldly affairs may interest you more than everyday ones, and you may be drawn to psychic matters or occult studies. Your dreams are very important to you, and through them you may learn significant information. You are likely to possess an enjoyment of sensual pleasures or luxuries. You may also have some confusion regarding sexuality and with what you truly desire from relationships. You benefit from bringing greater clarity to your personal values, your relation to the material world and to other people.


Sun, Moon, Rising Sign Features

Leo Rising

The Rising Sign is the mask shown to others, also the physical appearance.

Leo Rising people are dramatic, extroverted and assertive. Your ruling planet is the Sun. You have great energy, courage and honesty, and are very creative, self-confident and perhaps a bit self-indulgent. You expect to be the center of attention, and often are. Even so, people forgive you for your excesses, sensing in you the incurable romantic. You are likely to have a leonine appearance, with a thick mane of hair and a dramatic flair to your clothing and appearance. You also enjoy the warmth of the physical sun. You are determined and usually get your way when you really want to. You also possess great integrity, and are a natural leader. Leo people are very proud, and your challenge is not to be arrogant or egotistical, but rather to develop humility and compassion, and to learn detachment in the gift of your affections.

Sun in strong opposition (within 2.8 degrees) with Ascendant

The planetary energies are polarized; outer events stimulate their interaction; integration is the challenge.

This aspect between the Sun and Ascendant gives a strong-willed and generous personality. You are dramatic and assertive, also creative, self-confident and more than a bit self-indulgent. Like Leo rising people you expect to be the center of attention, and often are. You also have great energy, courage and honesty and are very proud. Your challenge is to become more aware of yourself; to refrain from arrogance and egotism, and rather to develop humility and compassion, and to learn detachment in the gift of your affections.

The planetary energies conflict; internal and creative tensions bring rich rewards through effort over time.

You are softhearted, and you may be perhaps even too willing to sacrifice yourself for the good of others.

You may also be dissatisfied with work activities, or evade decisions, or practice other forms of escapism. You may have issues with deceptions practiced on you by other people. The development of a clearer sense of self is required. The otherworldly energy of Neptune must be used wisely.

The planetary energies flow smoothly; the connection is easy and beneficial.

This aspect gives an optimistic and self-aware individual, with high ideals and good vitality.

You have generally simple tastes, but your enthusiasm for life may give your waistline a tendency to expand. You are attracted to higher learning, and the fine arts, and you are a courageous and loyal friend. Good fortune follows you through life.

Saturn in weak opposition (within 5.6 degrees) with Ascendant

The planetary energies are polarized; outer events stimulate their interaction; integration is the challenge.

This aspect gives a deepening and concentration, or a blocking of the self-expression. You are serious about your responsibilities, and possess good executive abilities. You are also ambitious and are likely to make your mark on the world. There may also be a barrier between you and your self-realization so that your true feelings are denied outlet. You are likely to be strong-willed and autocratic, and can be selfish, or cautious and reserved. You may feel a sense of lack of love in your life, leading to a subconscious desire for recognition. You may have feelings of hostility or a physical ailment that prevents your total participation in life activities. Your heart-center may need developing. Your lesson in all this may be to deepen and particularize the knowledge of who you really are, make contact with your own inner significance, and learn to love yourself.

Sun in strong conjunction (within 1.1 degrees) with Mars

The strongest blend of the energies represented by these two planets.

This conjunction gives an active, out-going and self-confident personality. You are daring and have great physical vitality. You have great physical vitality and stamina, and are likely to have a wiry and spare physique. You may be quite athletic and also hard working.

There may be feelings of hostility or physical ailment that prevents your total participation in life activities. Your heart-center may need developing. The lesson for you is to deepen and broaden the knowledge of who you really are at the level of your innermost soul, and to really learn to love the person that you find in this process.

This aspect gives a highly sensitive, visionary and creative individual. You are probably somewhat unworldly, possessing an ethereal quality, a marked remoteness from ordinary reality. You are likely to be artistic or musical. You are the softhearted type, and you may be too willing to sacrifice yourself for the good of others. You may also be dissatisfied with your work activities, or life in general, leading to the habit of evading decisions, or to other forms of escapism. In feeling unfree to assert yourself, you may engage in self-deceptive illusions, or even the use of drugs. You also may have issues with deceptions practiced on you by other people. In order to develop a clearer sense of self, accurate feedback from other people is crucial, so that to avoid these traps, you should strive for utmost honesty in your dealings with others.

Your lesson in all this is to achieve a balance between the spiritual dimension of reality and ordinary life.

Sun in quintile (within 2.6 degrees) with Midheaven

The planetary energies are positively linked, subtle, and spiritual in dimension.

This aspect gives a strong personality, very involved in work and career. You can be autocratic and may appear selfish, or bent on getting your own way. You have a terrific sense of the positive value of achievement, and will likely go far, but you might need to beware of too much ego-involvement in being on top.

Moon in Aquarius (4° Aqu 14' 01") Moon in the Sixth House

The Moon in Aquarius gives a socially minded and progressive personality. You are charming and gracious. You can also be somewhat unstable or erratic in your behavior. You are consistently kind to other people, but you may come across as somewhat cold and distant, because you have a mental rather than an emotional nature. You desire to be an active force for good in the world, and are likely to achieve that lofty aim. You have great originality in your thoughts. You could benefit from spending more time with your emotions.

The Moon in the Sixth House represents an emotional sensitivity with respect to issues with service to yourself and others in the world. You are very conscientious and concerned with how best to serve yourself and other people. You perceive the chaos in the world, both your inner and outer world, as a reflection of an inability to perfect your own emotional processing. You can be nervous or high-strung. You are likely to be over-sensitive about how you express yourself emotionally. You may feel a need to control your emotions with caution although you are adaptable to your environment. You are very aware of your need to be of service to others. You work hard and you can be demanding and critical of yourself. You may also expect others to work as hard as you. You will be better able to serve yourself and other people when you learn to come to terms with your sensitivity and begin to feel secure with your own emotions.

This conjunction gives a sensible, kindly personality with a shrewd and penetrating understanding. You are honest, straight talking and logical, and display an unusually high intelligence.

It is important for you that your home environment be aesthetically pleasing.

Moon in strong square (within 2.7 degrees) with Midheaven

The planetary energies conflict; internal and creative tensions bring rich rewards through effort over time.

This aspect gives an emotionally sensitive personality who is nurturing and caring. You may be over-dependent on others for your own feelings of self-worth, so that it is important to you that others look up to you. You do well in a business setting, having a dramatic presence that gives you natural abilities to influence others, and an attitude of caring that makes you easy to get along with, but you may have difficulties due to being changeable or engaging in political game-playing. You set priorities based on people rather than strictly on profits.

Moon in quintile (within 0.5 degrees) with Jupiter

The planetary energies are positively linked, subtle, and spiritual in dimension.

This aspect gives an idealistic and humanitarian personality, friendly and sociable, with an inherent spirituality. You are loving and caring and are also strong in character, with a keen sense of right and wrong. You are fortunate in finances, and attract material rewards without seeming to try for them. You are honorable and dependable in your dealings with your fellow man, and work well with the public. There may be an inclination toward the mystical side of life.

Moon in inconjunct (within 4.5 degrees) with Uranus

The planetary energies do not flow smoothly, one or the other predominates; discrimination must be employed.

This aspect gives an eccentric personality with volatile emotions and with a strong sense of intuition. You have changeable emotions, and may appear unpredictable, at times, to other people. Novelty excites you. You may change your residence frequently, or go through fundamental transformations of identity in your life, and you may feel stifled if these impulses are not allowed expression. You can benefit from learning to balance your needs for security with your urge for freedom and experimentation.

The ruler of your Sun Sign is Uranus in Virgo (8° Vir 42' R)

The ruler of your Sun sign is characteristic of your personality:

Uranus in the Second House (or sign) gives an individual who is likely to be concerned with changing his or her physical environment. You have a unique value system, and you may "march to the tune of a different drummer" or choose to experiment with different lifestyles. You have a tremendous drive for independence, and you don't like to work for other people, so that you may be motivated to start your own business. You also may be involved with New Age business ventures, or those involving modern communications, such as Internet resources. You have a unique way of looking at the world, and of finding your own way to its abundance. You may have possessions that you value at one point in your life, but this can change rather suddenly, and you may have to start over. Your income can also fluctuate. You can appear selfish at times to other people, or you may be something of a crusader. You benefit from getting in touch with what you truly value, as opposed to what conventionality dictates. Then your efforts will allow new resources to evolve in your life and your consciousness, and lead to the greater good of society.

The following applies to your generation as a whole as well as to you personally:

Uranus in Virgo (or the sixth house) gives an individual with a clever and enthusiastic mind, original in thought and action and not comfortable with routine. You are likely to have a scientific and analytical mentality. You can also be impatient with others, or lacking in sympathy for their concerns. You like to change jobs, and you are a hard worker, if allowed the freedom to work as you feel motivated. You may have to struggle with organizational elements at the expense of performance. You may also have health problems, since the Uranian energy is fitful in its application. You may experience difficulty with keeping things in order, but this can be overcome through persistence. You are likely to be interested in new-age healing techniques. You are on an important path of self-realization in this life, corresponding to your own unique vision, and will not be satisfied with anyone else's idea of what it is that you need to accomplish for yourself. You benefit from drawing out your original creative impulse into more long-lasting and concrete projects through concentration and technique.


Other Natal Planets

Mercury in Aquarius (1° Aqu 37') Mercury in the Sixth House

Mercury in Aquarius gives a balanced and socially oriented mentality, insightful, analytical and detached. You have an inquisitive and scientific mind, with excellent powers of logic and reason. Your thinking is idealistic, yet also well grounded in reality. You are a good judge of character, and you are likely to work well with groups. You appreciate the beauty of things in the world, which for you includes both their utility and ultimate purpose. Your have a strong social motivation and strive in your communication and contact with others to advance the cause of humanitarian ideals. Others may find you almost too detached, and you benefit from expressing your passion when you feel it.

Mercury in the Sixth House represents a strong connection between your inner awareness and the day-to-day world of health and sickness, and of service to others. You tend to be very aware of health issues that come up for you. You have a humble attitude toward life, and enjoy being of service to other people in the course of simple and everyday activity. You have an analytical and practical mentality, so that other people find you dependable and know that they can rely on your thought process. You may have a strong intuition that the root of any discomfort or disease may be traced to the power of the mind itself, that your thoughts can affect how you feel physically. You also can be something of a perfectionist. Your attention to detail may prevent you from focusing on the larger picture, or you may find yourself speaking critically about people or situations that do not measure up to your standards. You are at your best when, rather than being overly concerned about relatively minor issues, you relax into your awareness of yourself and share this awareness with others.

Venus in Aries (1° Ari 22') Venus in the Eighth House

Venus in Aries gives an energetic and outward-directed love nature. With this placement your love and relationship energy is impulsive and enthusiastic, so that you are loads of fun to be around. You are also likely to have strong artistic inclinations. You may be rather quick to take offense. You are passionate and restless in all forms of relationship, and you may prefer to be the one that takes the initiative, at least when it suits you to do so. You are an ardent lover, and you may need to develop a sustaining quality to your passion in order for the relationship to last. You can also be inconsiderate at times, without seeming to be aware of it. Rather than placing all the emphasis on yourself, you benefit from learning to see from other points of view.

Venus in the Eighth House represents a deeply felt connection within you between what you value, affection and intimacy. You naturally benefit from close associations with others, either materially or spiritually. You are likely to be sensual and passionate in relationships, and tend to relate to even casual contacts on a deeper and more personal level. You may also appear friendly and guileless on the surface while acting shrewdly at another more hidden level of your personality. You benefit from curbing the willful expression of your passion and realizing the suffering inherent in any manipulative behavior. You may feel called to express artistically the hidden realms of your being, such as by exploring death and dying or the occult. Your values are subject to continual change as you learn and grow, moving you ever closer to a deeper conception of who you really are, below the surface

Pluto in Virgo (13° Vir 27' R) Pluto in the Second House

Pluto in the Second House (or sign) gives you tremendous focus around the issue of money and material possessions. With this placement you will transform your attitude toward the material, and your values in general, as you go through life. Finding your own base, independent of cultural norms, is an important theme for you. You may be apt to associate a sense of security with material possessions, or find yourself spending in a compulsive way for no apparent reason. You are a financial powerhouse, but there can be swings of fortune, up and down, as you will likely go through many changes in your attitude toward the material in the course of your life's journey. You may find that you move toward a more connected sense of security as you mature, one that does not stem from feelings of isolation and lack. You can then overcome your tendency to obsess on having enough through self-discipline and a realigning of values. When your values transform, your sense of self no longer depends on physical possessions, but rather on the deeper meaning associated with these things, which are symbolic of love and sharing.

The following applies to your generation as a whole as well as to you personally:

Pluto in Virgo (or the sixth house) gives you an intense desire to be of service in the world. This desire can take the form of a compulsion to help others in a way that may not truly be appreciated by the intended beneficiaries. You are slightly obsessed with finding the purity inherent in human activity, and may well be a champion of the environmental movement, or exert yourself strenuously in your job or home setting. You may also become intensely concerned and perhaps even chronically worried over health issues, or you may be apt to stress over organizational detail where the intention is to purify the function of the particular activity, but where attending to the details can become an end in itself. You may go through many profound changes of attitude in these areas, in order to learn how to be of actual service to yourself and others. Creative outlets for your passion might be found in the helping professions, or in working on your own issues in such a way as to regenerate your values and life direction. When you have transformed in these areas you can become a beacon for others to follow. By staying true to your own inner guidance system, you make it possible for others to also, and further the cause of a more self-aware and wisely functioning planetary society.

Chiron in Pisces (13° Pis 06') Chiron in the Eighth House

Chiron in the Eighth House (or sign) represents issues with one's vital force to transform and to regenerate. With this placement you have a strong compulsion for intimate connection with other people that does not easily find its realization. You are likely to have been wounded in your sexuality in some fashion, possibility through early experiences that may even include abuse, either physical or emotional. As a consequence, being close to other people becomes both desired and painful. You may hold off the prospect of closeness with others with some carefully engineered defenses, such as retreating from expressing your true feelings by means of clever Dylanesque obfuscation, or perhaps by using other people before they have a chance to use you. If you do retreat into cleverness and mental gymnastics rather than risk staying with your actual emotion, you leave these feelings unexpressed, and continue a process of being out of touch not only with the intimate other, but with the deeper part of yourself as well. Your journey of discovery of your true emotions, the poignant and vital basis of your inner life, is ultimately the most important one for you, and provides rich rewards as you begin to consciously experience these inner depths of your being, over a period of time. In this journey you will re-connect to your own long buried emotions, and through this process to others as well. As you begin to find yourself and your power, and are truly able to work with other people, you may be able to provide a sense of hope to them in their own individual journeys as well, through the increased consciousness you have gained.

The following applies to your generation as a whole as well as to you personally:

Chiron in Pisces (or the Twelfth House) represents issues with one's vital force to be at home in the world of physical manifestation. You may feel frustrated and alienated from rest of mankind, or more at home in a world of fantasy than in dealing with what is laughably called "the real world". You have a talent for that which is beyond this world, and can make your mark on it in your own particular fashion, which may perhaps be achieved in the worlds of music, or poetry, or as a seeker for higher truth. But these are ways of being in the world without actually participating in it. Possibly there were painful episodes from early childhood that drove you into a world of your own, but you have come to be quite at home in this world, and the issue for you is coming out with style and dignity, rather than by totally abandoning your inner cosmos. Again and again, you attempt to be a part of it all, just like everyone else, and again and again it just doesn't quite work. There may be many painful episodes before you realize that what is "for everyone" out there is just not for you at all. You may do work with other people, in helping them to be peaceful and comfortable in connecting their own lives to a higher truth, without ever really getting it yourself. Of course one is tempted to blame oneself for this sort of failure to connect. There are deep emotions associated with withdrawal from the world that must be examined if you are to begin to operate from a feeling of wholeness and truly make your own way. There is a part of yourself that has been carefully hidden away, defended from the pressures of consensus reality, and it may take a lot of work to get in touch with these dark places. It may be that you come to a sense of peace with your darker, more hidden self only after a long period of soul-searching. When you begin to make your way on this process of integration, then you find that there really is a way to be a part of the world at large, to participate and share in its wonders and its disasters too, without giving anything up. It is not easy to make this transformation, but it is vital to your emotional health and well-being, and makes it possible for you to reach out to others as well, who may be fumbling towards a similar apotheosis.

N Node in Cancer (10° Can 40' R) N Node in the Eleventh House

Lunar North Node in the Eleventh House (or sign). South Node in the fifth house or sign. This placement gives an individual with a focus on friendships, group associations and social goals. Although creativity on a personal level comes easily to you, and working creatively by including other people is perhaps more difficult, it is this more difficult task that you are drawn to attempt in this lifetime. In the past, or in previous lifetimes, you were proud of your individuality and of your individual contribution. You may have had an ego attachment to the products of your personal energy, and were not very interested in promoting social values or a group ideal. Now you find yourself envisioning possibilities far larger than just for yourself and your immediate family, so that the betterment of all of society becomes your focus. How can you fit into society around you in a way that benefits both the collective and your own idealistic agenda, moving forward? As you develop along this evolutionary path you find that you are ever more future-oriented and socially responsible, for in this way you find your true fulfillment.

Lunar North Node in Cancer (or the fourth house). South Node in the tenth house or sign. This placement gives a strong desire for emotional security. You may feel you are a special person, a person of great achievements, and you may even feel isolated in your singularity, for in the past or in previous lifetimes you spent a great deal of your energy on getting to the top. But as the refrain goes, "It's lonely at the top" and your focus now will be on getting a better sense of who you really are, at the level of your emotional roots. You will find as you advance in your life, that your home life is extremely important to you. Exploring the depths of your being through meditation or some sort of transpersonal process work will also be extremely beneficial. Although you may feel tempted to go out and achieve in the world of career and public life, for which you have a natural affinity, it is in the area of establishing a secure base of operations, and of nurturing your immediate community of friends and family that you find your greatest fulfillment, this time around.

You may find yourself expressing actual cruelty by the violent imposition of your will or by mental manipulation of others. In a man's chart there may be symptoms of an exaggerated maleness, such as emotional domination or recklessness.

You have a brilliant mind, and are undoubtedly a witty conversationalist, although with a slightly erratic tendency to switch topics arbitrarily. This aspect is the hallmark of an inventor or other type of creative thinker, perhaps in the health fields or the helping professions. You are likely to have great difficulties with walking the straight and narrow but something seems to be forcing you to. Or it is a compulsion based on your own painful experiences with authority. It is important to become more conscious of your hidden motivations and patterns, so as not to be ruled by them from below, as it were.

Neptune in weak trine (within 4.7 degrees) with Chiron

The planetary energies flow smoothly; the connection is easy and beneficial.

With this combination of planetary energies in your chart, you may have gone to the depths and back again in your life. You have a particularly strong access to the world of dreams and inner fantasy, which may serve as an escape valve for you. You may also be extremely sensitive to the psyches of others, may vicariously experience their pain. Something keeps you out of touch with consensus reality, but you also are not comfortable with this role. It is as if you stand on the other side of a glass door from the rest of society, through which you alternately gaze longingly and then lose interest and wander away into your own fantasy. You are capable of tremendous spiritual powers once you have begun to work through these difficulties and establish a better sense of where you stand vis a vis the remainder of society. You may exhibit great poetic or musical talent or the empathy of a born healer. Having come through a painful examination of your own psyche you are able to see more clearly and compassionately into the minds of others also.
