Sample Astrology Reading 5, pg. 1 of 3

The features of your chart, Rachel, that I will draw on in this section, although not necessarily in this order, are:

1) No planets in the element earth;

2) Aries rising; ruler (Mars) Lord of the chart in the fourth;

3) Sun conjunct Neptune in the sixth;

4) Moon conjunct Uranus in the second house;

5) Saturn conjunct Pluto in the fifth;

6) Bowl Planetary Pattern; no rim opposition;

7) Moon in Gemini is the cutting planet of the Bowl;

8) Jupiter conjunct the south node of the Moon.

The signs can be grouped into four affinity groups known as the elements, or three groups each of whose members conflict one another known as the quadruplicities (see page 46 for more). What is very significant about your chart, Rachel, is that you have no planets in earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn), symbolizing impracticality and a disinterest in money, material possessions or material things in general. Perhaps you’re not at home on the planet Earth, and may be lost in space, unable to put your feet on the ground. You may have trouble with getting organized, persevering, or with responsibility in general, or exhibit a childish inability to perform the simplest, day-to-day tasks. It’s not uncommon for people with no earth, however, to over-compensate by indulging in the physical and material.

It makes sense that the six astronauts Frank Borman, Gordon Cooper, Gus Grissom, Alan Shepard, Margaret Seddon and Umberto Guidoni had no earth; but how does one account for the three billionaires Bill Gates, John Paul Getty and Donald Trump, the explorers James Cook (18th century British admiral), Henry Stanley (Welsh writer and politician who opened Africa and found Dr. Livingston) and Gerhardus Mercator, mathematician and geographer after whom the famous map projection is named? Other famous people with no earth in their charts are/were Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Maya Angelou, Harry Belafonte, Gary Busey, Art Carney, Glen Close, Walter Cronkite, Doris Day, Leonardo DiCaprio, Joe DiMaggio, Sally Field, Peggy Fleming, Larry Flynt, James Garner, Jackie Gleason, Whoopi Goldberg, Billy Graham, Angelina Jolie, Billy Jean King, Kevin Kline, Norman Mailer, John Malkovich, Nelson Mandela, Bette Midler, Liza Minnelli, Marilyn Monroe, Joe Montana, Mozart, Bernadette Peters, Condoleezza Rice, Carlos Santana, Steven Seagal, O. J. Simpson, Kurt Vonnegut, Lawrence Welk, Oprah Winfrey and James Woods. I also have no earth, and yet as an astrophysicist, astrologer and poet ran a furniture moving business for 20 years. Such compensation!

At 7:01 AM on March 25, 1961, Aries was rising in the east over Trenton, New Jersey (this example time and place are incorrect and have been changed to protect the actual recipient of this reading). Astrologically, your rising sign is the cusp (or beginning) of the first house, the mask you wear in relating to and projecting yourself into the world. The first house rules physical appearance, body type, conscious self-image, and how others see and experience you. It’s the window through which you view the world, and through which others receive their first impressions of you. And the sign on the cusp of your first house (called your rising sign or ascendant) can be likened to the particular tint on the glass of that window, coloring and modifying all energy that passes into and out of your being. In fact, all of your personality functions (planetary energies) must eventually emerge through and be colored by your first house cusp if they are to emerge at all. So your rising sign characterizes how you interface with and project yourself into the world.

Aries Rising is a gift that you have actually earned through work completed in past lives. It symbolizes a “natural” chart—one in which many (if not all) signs fall on the cusps of the houses they naturally rule. This denotes a natural personality, one that flows easily and instinctually without much forethought. With tons of energy, you’re headstrong, impulsive, quick to anger, courageous and aggressive. You can be easily bored, shortsighted and focused on immediate returns. If so, you’ll need to learn to follow through and make your goals larger in scope. You’re bold and argumentative, take the battle to the other fellow, and tend to act first and ask questions later. Learning tact and diplomacy would help. You’re apt to be thoughtless and unconsciously self-centered, and since you come on strong, others may experience you as arrogant. You have a great need to succeed at everything you do, as well as the ability to do it. You appear to be single-minded and daring: a leader. Good for mechanical work and all physical activity.

Mars—the ruler of Aries, your rising sign—is in the fourth house, so fourth house experiences are necessary for developing self-awareness and your individual self-expression. The fourth house is where our emotional foundation and subconscious self-image based on early childhood experiences are established. The way we feel about ourselves is conditioned by our experience of our parents’ (or significant others’) acceptance or rejection of us as we were growing up. From these experiences we developed our sense of belonging and our capacity to receive—and/or a sense of alienation and a difficulty or frozenness in receiving.

The fourth house rules the home, our family as a child and as an adult, the nurturing parent and our early experience of being nurtured, our most personal and intimate life, real estate and property, and our heritage and ancestry. Here is where we send down roots and establish a base of operations, find our limits, and generally secure ourselves. It is the end of any searching we might have done in the third house, and thus rules the latter part of life.

Mars in the fourth symbolizes that your emotions are strong, assertive, and may need a calming influence. You are driven to send down roots, build foundations and create security for yourself. When it comes to home and family you’re highly motivated. Tension, discord or anger deep within you may be reflected in your domestic life until recognized, understood, and surrendered—when peace can truly enter your soul. Until then, your intimate partners may experience some of your energy as “sand in the bed.” Since your Mars is slightly afflicted from squares to Mercury and from the ascendant, you’re apt to have a dominating mother, strife at home, and/or problems related to changing residences.
