received a rather unique early birthday gift this year – a friend of mine had
my horoscope cast.
not sure how I feel about this sort of thing. On the one hand, my Catholicism
means that I am hideously superstitious and of course, predisposes me to
swallowing whoppers wholesale. Let’s
face it: if I can fall for Vatican
propaganda, chances are you can convince me of just about anything. For example, when I first got married, my
new husband told me that he could suck the bubbles out of pop and I
believed him. He just seemed so
sincere. (And after that episode, I had
to endure years of suggestions to “take the short bus”. Thank God Jessica Simpson is around or I may
never have lived it down.)
my gullibility, you’d think I’d have the psychic friends on my speed dial. On the other hand, my former mother in law
was really into this sort of thing and it still kind of creeps me out.
I guess there’s only one way to find out how accurate it is. Let’s have a look, shall we?
Sun in Leo, Moon in Sagittarius
were born with the Sun in Leo and the Moon in Sagittarius. Both signs combine
to make you a fiery, ardent, and very temperamental individual. Internally, you
are proud; you have the potential to command and exert power.
doesn’t sound so bad….
have a big heart and are generous, strong-willed, reliable, and very fixed in
principles and opinions. You shine as a leader and have sufficient creativeness
for business and private enterprises. You have an excess of vitality, which
gives you vast ability in many activities. Leo's influence will incline you to
do everything on a rather large scale. If you overstress these traits, you will
appear as domineering and egotistical, always refusing to be content with
and egotistical? That seems a bit
affections may become too patronizing, and your feeling of personal nobility
may lead you to treat others as inferiors.
of accurate, but I try to be kind to the serfs.
Moon Conjunct Jupiter
aspect is very easy to live with. You are probably well liked, because your
optimistic attitude warms people up. You can even make others feel good when
they are depressed. And when you are depressed, you don't spread it around.
Even in your worst mood you can look at the situation with humor and laugh at
yourself, which eases your depression and makes the people around you feel
are quite a generous person who likes to help others and protect those who need
it. But you aren't overly possessive either. You won't take advantage of anyone
who is in trouble. You are tolerant of the ways in which others are different
from yourself, in fact, you are pleased to find them because they help you
learn more about the world.
this is accurate! I always
suspected that I was marvelous – seems the heavens are convinced of it
too. Maybe there is something in this
after all…let’s keep reading.
Jupiter Square Midheaven
have a lot of energy, and you want to accomplish something in life, but you
will have to learn how to balance your own interests with the interests of
other people in your life. If you do that, you can have good relations with
others and achieve what you want as well. Sometimes this aspect indicates a selfish
attitude, a feeling that you are the only one who counts in this world. If you
carry this too far, you will find that everyone you meet works against you
because you seem so selfish and arrogant or just because you come on too
liking this part too much…
this aspect means you have conflicts with authority figures, because they feel
that you are a threat to them.
imitates astrology after all…
you are young, you should avoid getting a reputation as a smart-aleck, because
such people do not get many breaks from others, especially those above them.
“smart-aleck”?!?! I’m so misunderstood.
have a very strong belief in right and wrong, but you must learn to have more
compassion for those who are on the wrong track. You are strongly tempted to
preach to people who are in error, and you may do this at times.
really, I just can’t understand why everyone just can’t do things MY way. Think of all the time we’d save.
Jupiter Trine Uranus
love freedom and you want to see everyone get a fair break. If you believe that
someone is not getting a fair deal, you will work very hard to help them and
fight for their rights. You are also a questioner, always wanting to know why a
situation is as it is, especially concerning rules and laws. You are not one to
break rules indiscriminately, but each one has to be justified to you. Custom
and tradition are not adequate explanations. In fact, you feel that these ideas
are barriers to progress put up by people who are afraid of the new, which you
are not. All your life you will be eager to have new and fascinating
experiences, see new places and encounter new ideas. Very often mere newness,
whether of ideas or objects, is enough to sell you, which means you may get
stuck with some pretty worthless items. You should make sure that something has
proved itself before you decide you must have it.
why didn’t someone tell me this BEFORE I started dating??
are tolerant and are willing to let everyone believe what they wish. Your own
philosophy of life will become quite strongly developed while you are still
young, but you will not try to shove it down anyone's throat. You like to be
around people who are different from you, and in fact you are attracted by
their differences. All your life you will be attracted to exciting people and
situations because they make you feel more alive and interesting, although you
aren't likely to be a dull person. In some people's eyes you may seem eccentric
but having them point this out in job interviews seems a bit unkind.
Mercury Trine Midheaven
early in your life you will begin to think about what you want to do when you
are older. To this end you will work to develop the talents that will help you
get ahead. You will do the best you can in school, especially in those subjects
that you think will be useful. While you are young, you will develop enough
discipline to learn the skills you need.
parents will influence your opinions very strongly, and they will probably
support you in whatever path you choose. Very likely you and your parents agree
generally and have similar ideas on most subjects.
so much. If it weren’t for the physical
resemblance, my mother would be convinced that the hospital foisted a changeling
upon her. My dad rolls his eyes a
lot. You get the idea.
enjoy playing games with others, especially games that teach you something.
if I win.
You may also enjoy writing as a pastime.
like it better if it paid the rent…
Neptune Trine Midheaven
are very idealistic in your attitudes toward the world, and you want to be as
free as possible of values and possessions that limit you or prevent you from
encountering the world. You may be less interested in material possessions than
most people of your age, feeling that the burden of taking care of them is more
trouble than it is worth. Besides, you value emotions, ideals and other
immaterial concerns more than possessions.
early in life you show how unselfish and giving you are, especially to people
in need. You like taking care of people or animals and trying to make them
better. As you get older you will have a strong need to be of service to
others, putting spiritual and moral ideals above personal gain. Even if you do not
always succeed in living up to that ideal, it will be a very powerful force in
may explain my poverty.
Venus Square Mars
aspect indicates that your feelings are very intense, particularly in
relationships. It is difficult for you to like someone only a little bit.
Either you like a person completely, or you are indifferent or unfriendly to
them. However, if you release your anger in an out- and-out fight, you quickly
get over it and go back to really liking the other person.
I always thought this was because of my short attention span and/or my
Moon Trine Uranus
need a great deal of freedom, and you insist on your right to do things in your
own way. It is very important to you to be emotionally independent of others
and to be free to form friendships or other relationships with anyone who
appeals to you. Probably you will be attracted most strongly to people who are
quite unusual. You are not actively rebellious yourself, and others may even
think you are quite conventional, but inside you are very much an individual.
can say with certainty that nobody considers me conventional.
will be attracted to anything that seems different or offers a chance for a new
experience. But be careful not to get involved in a situation simply because it
is different - it should be worthwhile as well.
this would have been good to know years ago.
though you may move often in your life, you will soon feel at home wherever you
are. But no one place will seem more like 'home' than any other. This is
because you don't want to be tied down to anything.
proved to be a bit of a problem in my marriage…
aspect gives you the ability to tolerate and respect offbeat people and unusual
situations, even when you aren't personally attracted to them. You will work
hard to achieve the sense that you are a unique person, so you are willing to
respect other people's uniqueness. You are not likely to dislike someone
because of what you hear about him; in fact, when you hear rumors about someone
you tend to believe the opposite.
that’s me -- patron saint of misfits.
Venus Trine Jupiter
is one of the easiest and most pleasant of all aspects. It indicates that you
are a warm and friendly person who can love and show affection for others. You
are fond of parties and good times, and you enjoy being comfortable and
surrounded by beauty and elegance whenever possible.
hate parties and avoid them like the plague.
this aspect is not limited to a love of comfort. You treat the people you like
very well, and you are willing to share everything you have with them. You are
very loyal to your friends and always try to treat them fairly. This trait will
win you the respect and love of many people, and you will receive the good
things of life in abundance.
you get older, you will set very high standards of behavior for yourself in
relationships. Honor and integrity are very important to you, and you always
try to be honest with your loved ones. The spiritual side of love is as
important to you as the physical and emotional aspects of love.
God, I’m just amazing, aren’t I? It’s a
wonder the whole world isn’t madly in love with me.
chart has many other indications of creativity and this aspect may give you
creative ability in one of the fine arts or literature. You may even make your
living in some artistic field.
first of all, I think we ought to define “make your living”. Because the abundance thing isn’t really
working out all that well yet…
Uranus in the Third House
have an unusually quick and original mind, and you enjoy dealing with new ideas
and concepts, especially ones that others consider too extreme. You can size up
a situation quicker than others, and you sometimes use this knowledge to play
jokes and pranks on people.
put that down to the fact that I lived in an Engineering fraternity house
during my undergrad. I was rented into
it without my knowledge as a joke. I
wound up staying for two years. Long

you’re all amazed, right? Right??
Uranus in Leo
with this placement will find new ways to express themselves and make an
impression on the world.

many ways they may be rather eccentric, which makes it difficult for them to
fit easily into groups because they are so individualistic.
there’s that “eccentric” thing again. I
never imagined the stars would be so judgmental.
The horoscope went on for pages in this vein, and
harped with insulting regularity about an alleged and overwhelming
predisposition to obnoxious self regard.
The word “arrogant” was bandied about with offensive regularity and
impertinent remarks were made about vanity and self-absorption. A tendency towards laziness and a love for
indolence were also highlighted.
A glance at the heading entitled “Born Under This
Sign” revealed an alarming collection of megalomaniacs, dictators and grandiose
But perhaps I’m the exception to the rule.
