My Sun Sign

Last night, I spent over an hour compiling information based on my astrological chart.

This is all interesting stuff to me. The reading is based on the time of day you were born, where you were born and where the planets were at the moment you were born, as far as constellations. Your next question might be, “Well, how do they come up with the personality descriptions, then?” Umm… I guess there is one last place for me to still explore on the Internet, because I don’t know. But I’ll get back to you on that. 🙂

Anyway, here is my reading:

The Myth: Cancerians, we are asked to believe, are soft, soppy, supposedly sweet natured folk who can’t say boo to a goose. These kind, gentle timid types are fond of home and hearth, devoted to their families and keen to live as much as possible in a cosy world of calm and comfort. They exist only to please others and love nothing more than martyrdom!

The Truth: While this pretty piece of propaganda may accurately describe the soft underbelly of the crab, it makes no allowance for that terribly tough shell or those powerful pincers. Cancerians are quite capable of kicking up a fuss and putting up a fight. It’s just that they prefer a quiet life when they can get one. Thus, they wait till a crucial line has been crossed before letting their anger out. Once that happens though, they summon the same steely resolve that they normally apply to keeping trouble at bay. They reserve their own strength only because they are slightly scared of it.

The Key To Success: To be a Cancerian is to be blessed with an infallible inner radar screen. It is to care, passionately, about the people who matter to you and the causes that have meaning to you. It is to know, always, what must be done and why – and never to be wrong. Yet it is also to feel your best is never good enough, even though it certainly is. All you ever have to do, to be successful, is be yourself with a little more confidence.

You are interested in saving the world, and there’s no reason why they shouldn’t be able to. This group of people, above all, is not afraid to work. In a revolt against the destructively egotistical forces of previous generations, the Pluto in Virgo group may take it upon themselves to start from the ground up and establish a healing process to preserve the Earth for future generations. This generation is neither idealistic nor optimistic. They may feel like their efforts are just a drop in the bucket when it comes to the problems humans face, and they don’t expect anyone else to pick up where they left off. This won’t stop them, however. They are content with delayed gratification in their own lives and may be happy knowing only that they are doing their best.

Open and generous, you enjoy a wide circle of friends and acquaintances and you thrive on sociability and fellowship. You are adventurous, playful, freedom-loving, and always ready for a good time. You rarely allow obstacles or difficulties to keep you down, for no matter how bleak the past or present, you always expect a better, brighter future. In fact, you are uncomfortable with your own or other people’s problems and emotional pain. You often try to “cheer up” or offer philosophical advice to those who are hurting, but unwittingly you avoid or ignore the emotions involved.

Friendship means a great deal to you, perhaps even more than love or romance. For you to be happy, your mate must be your best friend and encourage your aspirations and ideals. You also need a great deal of emotional freedom and mobility.

You are a person of strong opinions and you express your views energetically and often dramatically. You are an entertaining speaker and will embellish or exaggerate in order to get your point across. You have an aptitude for story-telling and performing. Even if your arena is only the classroom or dining room table, you put on a good show. You have an abundance of creative ideas and do not enjoy a job in which you have no creative input or voice in decision-making. You could be a good politician, spokesperson, group leader, director, or coach.

Want to know how to spot someone with Venus in Gemini? It’s that person who is happily chatting up everyone at a cocktail party, a succession of flirtations and entreaties at their disposal. Those with this placement are wise and witty and always the life of a party. They are also friendly and engaging and often seek out others with those same qualities, enjoying a mirror image of themselves. Flexibility and an expansive mind are also hallmarks of someone with their Venus in Gemini, and that razor’s edge can lead to all sorts of delicious situations. Fancy staying up all night talking to your lover in a candlelit room with the essence of violet and juniper perfuming the air? Then the person with Gemini in their House of Love is the one for you! A note of caution, though: these talkers can also be tricksters, delighting in being a tantalizing tease. Potential mates who can take it as well as dish it back, however, should start lining up. Those with Venus in Gemini have the most restless of minds and inquiring natures, so their ideal partner is one who will always keep them guessing. How’s that for a mating dance?

Mars in Gemini brings almost insatiable curiosity to the intellectually blessed folk with this placement. You are extremely versatile, and your multiple interests are forever expanding. You are extremely open to new experiences and mental challenges, and are capable of directing your energies for cerebral searches. You would make an excellent lawyer or critic, as your observations are astute, and your communication is infused with your perpetual cleaver wit. You excel at asserting yourself through language, enabling you to talk your way into and out of any situation. An intellectually active partner would be perfect for you!

Saturn in Pisces : In order to succeed in your social position in the world you will have to gain knowledge and expertise associated with emotional understanding, compassion, humility and a sense of duty for those less fortunate. Life experience will force you to learn valuable lessons related to these issues. You are likely to gain some form of profound spiritual understanding – but not before you have overcome deep irrational fears, negative emotional conditioning and a wayward imagination. Your work in the world may be towards the care or education of others – perhaps in social work, hospitals, universities, religion or the arts.

Uranus in Virgo: As an Earth Sign, Virgo is not entirely compatible with erratic Uranus. However, Virgo has a flexibility of its own. When the two come together, they cause quite an uproar on the ground. Those born with this placement are geared toward picking the world apart from the ground up. You may find yourself questioning everything from your toothpaste to the government. The standards and systems by which those around you run their lives might not appeal to you at all. You solve your problem with the intact protocol, however, by developing your own, which usually works better anyway. Virgo is the Sign of service, which makes your generation helpful when it comes to the plights of the rest of the world. Changes you make, however, will be on your own terms — or not at all.

Neptune in Scorpio : Those born in the generation of Neptune in Scorpio have the potential for realizing the higher levels of shared material ownership on a planetary level. They are infused with the vision of the spiritual repsonsibility for the Earth’s resources as a whole. They are aware of the current human material values and the potental for transformation of those values that will lead humanity to a higher level of relating to the physical world. On a personal level, it indicates the dilemma of dealing with establishing one’s value with other people. It is the choice between idealistically expecting the automatic support of other people’s resources or responsibly defining material valus with them. It also deals with the choice between expecting automatic emotional fulfillment through sex or committing oneself to the self-purification that will actually bring about the realization of those ideals.

Pluto in Virgo: The Pluto in Virgo generation is interested in saving the world, and there’s no reason why they shouldn’t be able to. This group of people, above all, is not afraid to work. In a revolt against the destructively egotistical forces of previous generations, the Pluto in Virgo group may take it upon themselves to start from the ground up and establish a healing process to preserve the Earth for future generations. This generation is neither idealistic nor optimistic. They may feel like their efforts are just a drop in the bucket when it comes to the problems humans face, and they don’t expect anyone else to pick up where they left off. This won’t stop them, however. They are content with delayed gratification in their own lives and may be happy knowing only that they are doing their best.
