The moment of your birth is reflected in your Natal Birth Chart. It is perfect and very carefully chosen by your own Soul for continued spiritual growth. Your astrology chart precisely depicts this – your ‘internal wiring.’ It shows the path you need to follow in order to fulfill your personal potential and gain the satisfaction of wholeness – it is the map ‘back home.’
The information in this report can help you to align and cooperate with the direction of your own internal energies. When you understand how the choices for action are influenced by the planets located in specific signs in your chart, then you can exercise conscious free will within the framework of this deeper understanding of your individual identity.
Unconscious Expression and Conscious Expression
The discussion of the planetary urges is divided into “Unconscious Expression” and “Conscious Expression.” The “Unconscious Expression” explains past-life tendencies that, without awareness, you will continue to enact. This describes habitual responses that result in personal defeat and isolation from inner joy. The “Conscious Expression” suggests the purification process that can resolve these self-defeating tendencies. It is like a dark room – turn on the light and the darkness is easily dissolved. Once the “Unconscious Expression” is exposed, the Light from your inner self will allow you to release it, allowing you to make new choices.
As you read about the “Unconscious Expression,” the corresponding unconsciousness may be stimulated and rise to the surface to be released. It’s not unusual to feel devastated after reading this section. In fact, the degree to which you allow yourself to feel totally hopeless when reading the “Unconscious Expression” condition is the depth to which it can be cleared out and released. It will be replaced with a sense of inner freedom and ease as you read the “Conscious Expression” description, which reveals new options.
Running Experiments to Discover Truth
The purpose of running experiments is to find out what works – what produces an increase of happiness and ease in your relationships with others and with life. You are the only one who knows what things are true for you, and your inner self is the ultimate judge of the completeness and accuracy of the insights offered in this report. With some planetary descriptions you may feel a sense of “Yes, that’s exactly how I experience it,” and with others there may be no immediate recognition. You are the authority, and your practical experience is the best guide.
None of us breaks ancient patterns of unconsciousness all at once. It’s a process of choosing to do things a little differently, with a little more awareness, step by step. To get started, pick one of the ideas that ‘rings true’ to you and apply it by expressing yourself differently in that area in daily situations and see what happens. Approach it as an experiment.
As you begin consciously changing the way you interact with others, you can experience the empowerment of shifting situations in ways that are more to your liking and creating more positive results. By staying focused on your experiment, you will also find that environmental stimuli are less likely to throw you off your center of inner joy.
Your Key to Self-Actualization
The Sun in the birth chart signifies your divinely endowed power and talent: your individual, creative style of self-expression and your style of leadership. The SIGN of the SUN in your chart indicates the avenues through which these abilities can be spontaneously expressed. This is where you shine!
YOUR SUN IS IN THE SIGN OF
You feel you have the right:
- To be right;
- To discriminate, criticize and analyze others;
- To be acknowledged for your righteousness.
Asleep focus: Wanting others to recognize your righteousness and purity.
Risk: You may unconsciously behave in stuffy, prudish, puritanical, compulsively ordered, and superior ways. To be acknowledged, you may elicit judgment on right and wrong, using your analytical ability to appear important and set apart from others.
Result: In proving your ultimate rightness, you may use your finely honed critical talents to point out your own flaws. This backfires, resulting in a lack of confidence in your own spontaneity. You may also point out the flaws in others, according to a rigid value system of rigid rules for perfect behavior. When others don’t appreciate or understand your good intentions, you are surprised.
Indulging in a tendency toward compulsive self-righteousness can scatter and deplete your energy, disrupting the focus and self-confidence you need to act.
With a new focus: Uplifting others through your talent for creating order and healing.
Result: Now you notice how you can truly serve others without having to feel right about it. Recognizing the inherent worth of others gives you trust in your vision of their perfection. This frees you to contribute in a way that effectively supports them. When you expose others to your perception of their inherent value, they appreciate your desire to serve. This reinforces mutual self-worth.
By being aware of others’ personal plans, you can motivate them to achieve what they want. This success increases their vitality and sense of well-being. When you place serving others above your judgment of whether or not it’s the right thing to do, you can abandon rules and regulations. This results in self-trust, allowing you to act spontaneously in a way that automatically works to facilitate any situation.
If you are aware that your intentions are truly pure, your motivation for acting rightly is fulfilled.
Your Secret Magical Power:
The Power of Creating Order
You possess a kind of directness, a straightforward, simple, no-nonsense, no games, grounded approach. At a party, you’re not really chitty-chatty, and you might not say that much.
There’s a politeness and refinement to you, a quietness, an awareness of being conscientious and not disturbing your surroundings. You are real, and present in the here and now. There’s solidity to you. You’re attentive – listening to what others say, and you make eye contact.
You feel that you’re “right there” with you. You can watch them, clearly tracking what the other person is saying or what’s going on. You are bright and alert; analyzing.
As a Virgo, you are naturally conscientious of others – not wanting to interfere with others’ space. You want to be useful, to be of service. You aren’t lost in your own world or careless – you are aware of not leaving a footprint in the environments you enter. You like a certain distance from others, having your own space as well as shared space.
You can be shy in relationships. You aren’t shy with friends, connecting with them and initiating activities, but you are with those you are romantically attracted to. If you really like somebody you might have a tough time being natural enough to just call them or initiate. Your style is not aggressive.
Making plans is fun for you. You enjoy short-term planning: planning your day or week. You aren’t really a long-term planner and making a business plan can make you crazy-it takes the creativity out of life for you. You are less goal-oriented and more process-oriented. Your power lies in ‘taking the steps’.
Your Life Lesson Involves
Especially when younger, Virgos are very critical of themselves: “I’m not beautiful enough, my stomach sticks out, my breasts should be bigger” – they focus on what isn’t “perfect.” Naturally this leads to feeling badly about yourself and losing confidence socially.
I have a Virgo client who read a book: “There is Nothing Wrong with You.” Her first response to the title: “What? What do you mean? Look at my list!” You are learning to look at self-improvement not from the perspective of “there’s something wrong with me,” but rather from the view of enjoying the process of fixing things. Easing up on the self-judgment and self-criticism empowers you to make forward progress.
You value self-awareness as a pathway to being the best that you can be, and to correcting behaviors that are counter-productive to producing the results you want in your life. You have the gift of awareness of the connection between the cause and the effect, and notice the small details of life and behavior and what’s going on inside and outside.
You have a strong “observing ego” – which in psychological terminology means that you observe the behavior that you exhibit. By “seeing” in this way, you can lessen the grip of self-destructive behaviors and habits over you.

How to Spark Your Vitality
Because the SUN is located in the 10th house of your birth chart, you gain vitality when you are out in the world involved in your profession or taking charge of a situation.
The leadership skills in your Sun Sign get fired up and activated in circumstances that involve presenting your work to the public. The desire to keep your public image sterling motivates you to take action in some way, and inspires your creativity.
The process of reaching a goal ignites your Sun Sign and revitalizes you. You feel you have the right to social achievement and public recognition, and the ability to create it.
Your Key to Emotional Fulfillment
The Moon in the birth chart reveals your deepest personal, emotional needs. The SIGN of the MOON in your chart indicates the most advantageous ways to meet your needs for nurturing, deep personal connection and emotional completion.
The Moon further reveals the avenues through which you need to nourish others – and be nourished – in order to create intimacy, acceptance, and nonverbal expressions of caring. Your Moon Sign also illuminates your ability to integrate change without being emotionally disrupted.
Additionally, the Moon’s Sign placement shows where there may be habits based on survival dependency from childhood (perhaps adopted from watching your mother) that can create unconscious attempts to manipulate others to meet your needs. This can result in separating yourself from other people by expressing emotional needs in ways that repel them. In order to gain the closeness and intimacy you need to create a stable emotional foundation, the underlying feelings driving this process need to be brought into awareness and healed through awareness of your Moon Sign.
YOUR MOON IS IN THE SIGN OF
When you habitually seek to be in control of situations relating to personal independence, you can be competitive to the point of “winning” by withdrawing from interaction with others. You may avoid asserting your needs and then working it out with the other person, not wanting to risk the Aries independence. This non-assertion leads to repressing your independent impulses and creating situations where others dominate you.
Key: Powerlessness and Alienation
Needing other’s permission before taking the lead, results in insecurity and loss of personal power. This leads to a resentment of others because you feel they are responsible for your inability to act. You may react to their outbursts by withdrawing and feeling violated when they are insensitive to your repressed emotions. Withdrawal adds to your own state of angry, unexpressed, and tightly controlled feelings.
In addition, there is a tendency to hide your emotional needs in order to maintain distance and control the circumstances. However, this leads to losing touch with the power of your own independent inner core. If you are unwilling to assert your needs and feelings and work it out with others, you may find you are not able to work it out at all. The result is withdrawing from participation. Such an action leads to the frustration and anger of feeling unable to express and accept recognition for your natural executive abilities.
Your challenge is to take responsibility for creating the independence you need. This empowers you to notice that repressing your feelings and letting others have their way does not lead to your feeling in control. The truth is that others cannot provide sensitivity to your emotional states. You are the one with the gift of sensitivity to underlying instinctive feelings.
Your lesson is to acknowledge your need to feel close by initiating a mutual awareness of basic human feelings and needs. You can accomplish this by moving your attention away from yourself and toward perceiving the human insecurities and feelings of others. First, verbally acknowledging how the other person may feel relaxes any resistance he or she may feel toward you. Then you can express your own needs, and closeness is created.
Key: Opening Sensitivity
Avoiding judgmental thoughts about another’s lack of sensitivity opens you to recognize the true nature of arising feelings. This knowledge leads to sensitivity to others as individuals rather than taking their expression personally. Thus, the basic insecurities of others can put you in touch with your own underlying feelings in an objective, balanced way. You then possess the clarity you need to work constructively in relationships.
You win when you show your sensitivity and vulnerability to others’ insecurities. By revealing your feelings and needs, your innate power is acknowledged, and others respond with emotional support. You can then express feelings successfully since you are sharing yourself with diplomacy born of awareness of another’s sensitivities. Consequently, you are able to feel close by having your true feelings accepted and shared. From there, it’s easier to work through situations with others.
This process empowers you with the security of independence and courage in relating to others. When you support the ability of other people to handle situations, you reinforce their self-confidence. Thus, your own independence and initiative are spontaneously recognized, respected, and appreciated.
In Past Lives
Unconscious past-life memories of battlegrounds, direct physical combat, and competition for the attainment of your personal needs have made issues of personal survival strong in this lifetime. You are always on the alert but camouflaged so that you can spot the enemy without showing your own strength. To maintain this disguise you may feel you must suppress your strength, which actually invites provocations and attacks from the outside. By suppressing your spirit you invite others to walk all over you.
Due to these past-life experiences and the tendency to view everything in terms of personal survival, you may interpret any opposition in this lifetime as a direct threat to your own goals. Thus, you could respond with either vehement resistance or by cutting off the other person entirely and going your own, independent way.
The lesson you are learning is to incorporate the resistance of others into your plan, to see it as a means of actualizing your goals more efficiently. You are learning to be objective enough to welcome the input of others. By taking into consideration their objections, needs, and feelings relative to your own plans, you can expand your objectives to ensure genuine partnership and harmony in working together toward a mutual goal.
Key: Inclusiveness Yields Fulfillment
As you learn to stop projecting your identity (either positive or negative) onto other people, you begin to see them objectively and take them into account. Then you can “be first” in a way that allows the other person’s needs to be met as well. Many past lifetimes have been spent developing your own identity, and you are not accustomed to easy cooperation with others in joint projects and team efforts. Rather than feeling you need to compete with others to get your own way, you are learning to include their desires and fears in working out solutions that are fair to all.
Past lives spent in high-speed activity without time for tact and diplomacy, have led to a certain naivetÃ© and directness in fulfilling your personal needs. This makes your intentions clear for all to see; thus, those who feel threatened by your goals may try to block or manipulate you in some way. When this happens, you feel you have to fight to survive and get what you want. The only other alternative you see is allowing the other person to be the conqueror and to totally suppress your own needs. You don’t realize that your impatience and carelessness are creating the very opposition you fear.
The less naive and direct in your speech you become, as well as being more diplomatic in communicating your wants and needs, the less others will feel threatened – and will have no need to oppose you. Your new tactfulness will encourage others to feel that they too are winning by going along with your plan. You are learning to enlist the support of others in going toward the goals that fulfill your own needs.

How to Gain Emotional Fulfillment & Security
When the MOON is located in the 5th house of your birth chart, the nurturing you need to feel emotionally satisfied comes through following your heart and participating in recreational activities that arouse feelings of playfulness and joy. Children evoke your nurturing energy. You gain emotional security by using your dramatic expression of personal feelings in ways that inspire others, and by being able to dramatize yourself through creative efforts.
Your Key to Effective Communication
Mercury in the Birth chart indicates the nature of your mental talents, your intellectual approach, and your gifts for verbal communication. The SIGN of MERCURY in your chart shows the avenues of communication that most easily inspire a sense of affinity and mutual sharing with others. It reveals what you think about, and the types of mental connection with others that can create a true sharing of information that results in expanded mutual understanding.
Mercury’s Sign Placement further reveals the process by which you may create endless mental worries and negative expectations that can unconsciously keep you from being yourself and telling the truth out of fear. It illuminates the motives that cause you to withhold yourself verbally, which inevitably leads to misunderstandings with others.
YOUR MERCURY IS IN THE SIGN OF
Asleep fear: Not saying the right thing.
Result: By looking to others for a reflection of immediate acceptance, communications can stop. Withholding honest interchange for fear of rejection leads to your mind to being stuck in a swamp of considerations that brings indecision. If you withhold disclosing what is actually on your mind, you may lose your perspective, integrity, and perceptual balance.
When you focus attention on your point of view and sharing your independent opinion, you can discover the spontaneous awareness of your impact when communicating with others.
Concentrating on what needs to be said rather than on what you think other people want to hear can contribute the justice, truth, and balance required. You then may discover that you have a natural talent for diplomacy and communication that spontaneously restores harmony without compromising any sense of personal integrity.

When MERCURY is located in the 10th house of your birth chart, your thinking becomes clear when you focus on what your goal is in the situation facing you. You have the special ability to perceive those things that will lead to control for good or ill, and to communicate with authority before a public audience.
Your Key to Love and Self-Worth
Venus in the Birth chart reveals the key to building a sense of personal self-worth and gaining a firm understanding of your value to others. The SIGN of VENUS in your chart indicates the ways in which you can best use your innate gift for putting other people at ease and creating harmony in social situations, which brings feelings of satisfaction and self-worth. Venus is the principle of loving and being loved.
Venus also denotes the receiving – rather than initiating – sexual principle, and shows your natural talent for experiencing and expressing pleasure that can be shared with others in the spirit of harmonious interaction. It indicates how focusing on those personal values that give you pleasure, and contributing your own brand of warmth, results in an atmosphere of open sharing.
The Sign in which Venus occurs also discloses the process by which you may lose confidence and self-esteem in social situations. This can result in withholding yourself socially or relinquishing your own inner pleasure in order to live up to the expectations of others, both of which result in further feelings of personal inadequacy.
YOUR VENUS IS IN THE SIGN OF
Self-defeating habit: Harmony in social situations, regardless of the cost.
Result: There is a tendency to withhold your opinions and sense of justice. You may gain a false sense of harmony with others when in effect you are constantly at the mercy of their approval. When you withhold your ability for creating harmony and instead seek to appease others by telling them what you think they want to hear (according to their sense of fair play), your manipulations inadvertently create chaos. Inevitably, such chaos leads to feelings of self-doubt and worthlessness.
In situations of conflict, if you fear that your solution may not be accepted, then you may withhold an honest sharing of yourself for the sake of harmony. This can lead to confusion and helplessness in your relationships.
Being willing to risk losing your role of Mr. or Ms. Nice Person in social situations, empowers you to share the injustices that you feel as well as the fair solution that you see. In so doing, your courage can pave the way for a higher, fairer order to take place. By asserting integrity and openly sharing your insights, you appreciate and value yourself in your relationships.
When you state your independent value system, your sense of balance and harmony is acknowledged. This leads to a feeling of self-worth. Declaring your innate perception of fair play to others (and risking the threat of possible disharmony in order to reach a greater harmony) results in inner satisfaction from sharing your fine gifts of social organization.
The invitation is to take the initiative to create harmony that is in alignment with the integrity of your inner sense of fair play. The result is a firm, consistent sense of self-worth.

Your Key to Passion, Energy and Assertiveness
Mars in the birth chart indicates your unique abilities in terms of taking the initiative and leadership. The SIGN of MARS in your chart shows the key to putting things in motion in ways that are successful and effective, and highlights the ways in which self-assertion can lead to joyous independence and renewed physical energy. Further, it discloses the power of a specific individual commitment that will inspire you in terms of productive self-assertion.
In addition, Mars’ Sign placement indicates the initiating – rather than receiving – sexual principle, and reveals the desire that motivates you to act. While this indicates how to assert yourself in ways that can be accepted by others and encourages creative and satisfying interactions, it also reveals the process by which you may unintentionally separate yourself and alienate others.
YOUR MARS IS IN THE SIGN OF
Asleep tendency: Alienating others by aggressively refusing to accept demands placed upon you.
Result: By acting on the premise that everyone looks out for himself, your behavior may appear rash, abrasive in exaggerated independence, and inconsiderate to others. You lose energy and acceptance when you fiercely maintain your right to absolute independence.
Conscious ExpressionAwake leadership: Using independence in ways that inspire others to take the initiative. Viewing your impact on them objectively empowers you to assert your courage and initiative in ways that lead to freedom for all concerned. You gain physical energy when you consider the other person and give that person confidence in his or her ability to follow destiny.

Your Key to Good Luck and Personal Expansion
Jupiter in the birth chart represents a more philosophical view of life – the awareness of an ordered universe behind chaotic appearances – which allows you to create value and personal growth out of any circumstances that life presents. The SIGN of JUPITER in the chart reveals the path where you naturally see this larger perspective, which leads to faith and confidence in life and in yourself, and locates the source of trust that can be tapped within each individual.
Additionally, Jupiter’s Sign also pinpoints the avenues that can lead to joy through utilizing social opportunity for personal expansion. It denotes an area of natural good fortune that, when activated, overcomes feelings of limitation and fear.
Jupiter also illuminates that area of life where your perspective can impart faith to others. The nature of Jupiter is so ‘wholehearted’ that if the sign your Jupiter is in is overdone, it can lead to carelessness and an extravagance that backfires on you by taking you beyond constructive boundaries.
YOUR JUPITER IS IN THE SIGN OF
Habitual hesitation: Postponing communicating insights to others.
Result: You may experience an endless accumulation of trivial information. When you use your buoyant expressions carelessly as a defense mechanism against other people’s unfamiliar points of view, you may experience a transitory trust in yourself. This leads to shallow conversations and a frivolous attitude, lessening your chances to better yourself in the world.
Accepted leap of faith: Seek information from others and yourself, trusting that there is an answer and listening for that resolution. When you actively expand your curiosity into dealing with information creatively, you find answers instead of being stuck in a perpetual question machine.
You experience truly meaningful communication with others and inner faith by sincerely listening for the right answers to your questions.

Your Key to Achieving Personal and Public Success
Saturn in the birth chart represents the purpose and direction in your life – the responsibility of fulfilling your destiny. The SIGN of SATURN in your chart shows the avenues by which publicly fulfilling your social obligation can result in a sense of personal achievement and self-esteem. The by-product is earning the respect of others for your natural authority in the world.
Saturn further indicates the ways in which the power of your personal commitment to contribute to society gives you the courage and self-discipline to rise above inhibition and fear, making those personal corrections that are necessary to achieve goals that are supported by the rest of the world.
The Sign where Saturn falls also pinpoints your greatest desire and greatest fear, and indicates the process by which your fears can deflect you from fulfilling your purpose. It shows that aspect of life where you do not yet “have it straight:” where you must tap into your powers of endurance and your ability to see things through in order to apply repeated effort to gain mastery on a non-ego level. Only through accepting and meeting the tests of Saturn can the bliss and freedom of transpersonal states of consciousness (represented by Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto) be secured on a permanent basis.
YOUR SATURN IS IN THE SIGN OF
You may try: To accumulate money or possessions to stand out as a separate identity, seeking to justify your worth to others.
Result: Poverty consciousness and a feeling of being victimized by the material world in relation to your personal security and self-esteem. The upshot is feeling continually thwarted from accumulating the money, comfort, and status you seek. If you struggle to avoid pursuing practical monetary ambitions, frustration with material status ensues.
Your skills and social responsibility: To manifest material abundance, comfort, and security in the world. The idea is to recognize yourself as creating limitations stemming from your values, which brings about circumstances that render you unable to regenerate your financial situation. Then your self-worth can be expanded to include new methods for making money.
Once you are willing to use your abilities to build tangible resources in a way that also helps others build their tangible resources, you can experience the worldly abundance and sensual satisfaction that you seek.
In Past Lives
Material resources can be scanty in this lifetime until you gain a clear sense of what is really important; what has meaning and value in your life. You are discovering the principles that when manifested, will give you an internal sense of stability, comfort, and self-worth.
Then material resources are unlimited and you can become wealthy through your own efforts. When you act in generous ways that help others feel comfortable in your presence, you create the experience of abundance within yourself on a moment-to-moment basis.
You have formulated a new sense of self in recent past lifetimes and now must build a foundation that will give strength, stability, and support to the fresh identity that has emerged.
Your task: To become more aware of helping others to feel comfortable when they are with you.

There is a need to acknowledge your desire for a partner you can lean on to gain social balance. Saturn offers the responsibility and reward of using your talent for creating a partnership that will support you and the other person constructively.
Your Key to Aha Moments – Feeling Fully Alive
Uranus in the birth chart represents your capacity to connect with a higher level of consciousness; intuitive perceptions of life that can empower you to rise above the confusion of interfering ideas. The SIGN of URANUS in your chart indicates the avenues through which you can become more receptive to this higher awareness, as well as your potential to express innovative ideas that can alter antiquated situations which no longer meet people’s needs. It also pinpoints how you need to experience – in a responsible, conscious way – the excitement of independence and personal freedom in order for your perceptions to remain clear.
In addition, the Sign of Uranus indicates the process by which your eccentric, unpredictable behavior may lead others to feel that you are too untrustworthy to be taken seriously. It exposes the manner in which your unconscious expression of careless indifference to others can lead to situations of emotional disruption and separation, and shows where you must assume responsibility to express and safeguard your need for freedom in ways that do not alienate others.
YOUR URANUS IS IN THE SIGN OF
Your ability: To perceive innovative forms of communication for reaching people with the message of the times. You have fresh insights into how to verbalize and promote the new directions that have been established.
Disruption occurs: Only when attempts are made to stay on a logical, rational level with your messages instead of expanding the mind to a more intuitive form of communication.
Uranus in the Houses
YOUR URANUS IS IN THE
Where you need the Freedom to be Uniquely Yourself
Habitual tendency: Demanding independence by dealing with others on the basis of how much stimulation and excitement they can provide.
Result: By indulging in such behavior you attract sporadic, disruptive relationships that scatter and deplete your energy.You may also experience boredom in close involvements, expecting too much from too few.
You know how to uniquely put across your individuality through creatively expressing variety and exciting stimulation in your responses to others. Recognize this need and enlarge your sphere to include impersonal alliances as well as a primary personal one.
When you understand that having many deep, intimate relationships scatters and depletes your energy, you can expand to a natural interaction of impersonal connections. This can result in having all the associations you need for stimulus without a disruption of your energy.
Your Key to Imagination and Emotional Ecstasy
Neptune in the birth chart represents connection to the oneness of Unconditional Love; the removal of illusion and the revelation of truth. The SIGN of NEPTUNE in your chart indicates how you can begin the process of trusting the universe to manifest – according to its standards of perfection – by releasing your own personal standards and preconceived notions of ‘the ideal.’ This allows the reality of the ideal to be manifested, enabling you to create your dreams in ways that are truly fulfilling and produce rewards in the material world.
The Sign of Neptune also reveals the self-defeating patterns and emotional illusions that lead to your highest expectations and your most intense disappointment. These illusions prevent you from experiencing the ecstasy inherent in the true ideal. However, Neptune also points to the avenues through which you can gain the strength, serenity, and ecstatic vision of Divine contact and trust in the workings of the universe.
YOUR NEPTUNE IS IN THE SIGN OF
Your generation’s potential: Realizing the higher aspects of health and service on a planetary level.
The innate vision: Plans that make perfect health available to everyone. Growing world concern over the effects of pollution, environmental hazards, and devitalized foods has increased through the efforts of this generation.
The Neptune-in-Virgo dilemma: Dealing with idealistic expectations of automatic emotional fulfillment coming from your job in life. It offers the choice of accepting or denying the responsibility of serving your fellow human beings in whatever capacity you may find yourself. A sense of true inner joy is possible through the conscious dedication of manifesting your ideals of service in your line of work.
Neptune in the Houses
YOUR NEPTUNE IS IN THE
Where you do not see things clearly
There is a tendency to try to create the impression of being the greatest authority according to your pictures of how you should appear to others. This leads to experiencing the disappointment and isolation that result from never being able to abandon your role.
If your ego identifies with the feeling of having a destiny ordained by the gods, you will seek to act it out according to your nearsighted, limited ideals. This cuts you off from the true sense of inspiration. This process leads to feeling like the abandoned victim or puppet of the gods when people contest or contradict your authority. You are left feeling confused, helpless, and unable to live up to your idealized potential.
The key is in letting go of your ideals of being a spiritual authority and role model in the world. This frees you to commit yourself to participating in the world as it really is, according to its own ideals, and gives you a feeling of confidence.
Not demanding that a personal ideal be met before you commit yourself empowers you to actively join in within the framework of the world’s established standards and models of success, honor, respect, and credibility. Then you can enact the best of those traditions.
Confidence comes from releasing your vision of what it looks like to be on top and instead trusting that the universe is manifesting its authority in the world through you, without your involvement with the results.
The greatest satisfaction comes when you make a solid contribution in the world by channeling spontaneous participation and overlooking any acknowledgment. This process leads to experiencing the ecstasy of your inner sense of accomplishment.
