Spirit Success

Astrology Reading for Leo – 8.20.1974 – Rising Sign: Libra


This Spirit Success Report from Halloran Software’s AstrolDeluxe ReportWriter program draws upon 576 paragraphs which interpret the places of the planets at the time of your birth, describing your personal houses, sign placements, and planetary aspects.

These astrological delineations depict your potential and how to make the most of it, or the challenges you will continue to face and how to confront and benefit from them. Though you may change through experience, your inherent characteristics will still motivate how you act and react to circumstances. How you handle yourself is really a clue to your success, and it is up to you to make the “right” choices.

Here are the parts which make up your chart:

HOUSES: Govern sections of your life, e.g., your money, your health, your partners, etc. They are also meaningful as to where your early interests lie and if they are worth pursuing.

SIGNS: Contribute feelings or vibrations to “color” planets, e.g., MERCURY rules GEMINI and VIRGO and emphasizes their qualities of thought, travel, health, and work. JUPITER rules SAGITTARIUS and higher education, spiritual growth, and law.

ASPECTS: Are angles combining the planets in the SIGNS/HOUSES that trigger the manner in which you will be influenced or can handle your qualities to advantage, e.g., MERCURY (thought) TRINE (in good aspect to) JUPITER (education and law) may indicate that you can succeed as a counselor in legal matters.

A “Strength” number precedes each ASPECT interpretation towards the end of the reading. This number synthesizes how exact is the aspect, whether the aspect is major or minor, and whether an aspecting planet is close to one of the four chart angles. The higher the Strength, the more you are likely to feel the aspect and to live it out in your life.

You are most likely to feel and act out the Spirit Success Report’s sign and house placement interpretations when the planets involved are strong in your chart. This is true especially of the outer planets, Jupiter through Pluto. The Astrodynes program, also available from Halloran Software, calculates the respective power and harmony of all the planets in your chart.

Planets in Signs and Houses

Libra Ascendant

(The Gracious)

If your mouth is not a Cupid’s bow and your teeth need capping, never mind! Your smile can put sunshine into a cloudy day, anyway. You are cordial and courteous under the most trying circumstances and seldom lose your poise. You’re a good listener; also a scintillating and intelligent conversationalist. Your weakness is your indecisiveness, but your first choice is usually right, if only you could decide to accept it. Oh well! Nobody’s perfect!

Sun in Leo

(Keynote: I WILL)

You are passionate, sincere, generous, courageous and loyal. You may also be demanding, possessive, jealous and intolerant. You are a champion of causes and defender of the helpless in time of need — the stuff of which heroes are made. You resist accepting second-best of anything. You are at your best when given dramatic license to take center-stage, with all eyes upon you. Your word is your bond, but you can be unreasonable if things don’t go your way. Try not to confuse the courage of your convictions with inordinate stubbornness, which is usually the source of your downfall.

Sun in the Eleventh House

(The People-pleaser)

You are everybody’s friend, but not always a friend to everybody. You often value friendship above love and may choose to keep your friends for a lifetime. Quick to bond, you may be equally quick to separate from a relationship when it appears you have nothing in common. You will doubtless find a place in a variety of social and service clubs, and hold more than one office. You adapt easily and fit into almost any group because you know how to get the most out of a situation, refuse to compromise your ideals, and maintain harmony by finding values to which all can relate.

Moon in Libra

(The Dependent)

You have a burning desire to please and will go to great lengths to do so. You cultivate an image of glamour and success, are probably a compulsive buyer and enjoy wearing distinctive and expensive clothes. You attract easily, and are popular, but fickle. You may be over-critical of your partners until you realize that, because you are easily-led, you need someone to help you make decisions. You are either too lazy or insecure to try to develop much self-reliance. A strong instinct that a special relationship is “fated” may lead you to the proper person to be your life-mate.

Moon in the Twelfth House

(The Isolationist)

You may be plagued by psychological problems originating with a mother-figure. You are hard on yourself and assume an oppressive responsibility for self-analysis because it is difficult for others to draw you out. Your friends will not understand your moods nor the fact that you need to call upon restorative powers provided only by seclusion. Depend on spiritual trust and your strong intuition to reveal what is demanded of you and how best to make payment.

Mercury in Virgo

(The Interpreter)

You read people well and have an insight that is valuable in all types of relationships. Your interest in health can lead towards promoting natural ways of improvement in diet and disciplined exercise. If your efforts go unappreciated, you may become hypercritical and distance people with a superior attitude. You are a tireless worker and once committed, will spend a lifetime at a task requiring painstaking application, which others would consider monotonous.

Mercury in the Eleventh House

(The Mingler)

You are at your best when your hopes and wishes mesh with those of others. Your friends are like you, so you are convivially compatible. Together, you solve dilemmas, further ideas, organize and socialize — but you may see things too much alike to expand in another direction. You exemplify a fraternity; your parties are delightful, but with only the same guests invited, may in time become static and leave you longing for the variety missing from your fun.

Venus in Leo

(The Extravagant)

Your infatuation with luxury prods you towards compulsive buying. You enjoy lavishing expensive gifts, dining or theater-going whether you can afford it or not. If you cannot manage the lifestyle you covet, you may try to create an illusion of opulence as a fantasy world of your own and discover gifts as a decorator or designer. Consider finding a way to utilize your talents in some form of theater that will attract the attention and plaudits you relish.

Venus in the Tenth House

(The Ambassador)

Your talents fit you for a life in the public eye. You do well in front of an audience of one or one-thousand, because you’re always aware that you are really selling “yourself,” even if it’s to the advantage of a client or a friend. You’re the perfect person to guide a career to the top and then advance it to something even better. You’re not an optimist — just someone who appreciates self-worth and is determined to make the most of it.

Mars in Virgo

(The Indispensable)

You perform “to the letter” and often to an “nth” degree that is unnecessary. You seem to have unlimited physical resources, take orders well and respect regimen, but may have difficulty in relating to co-workers. In arguments, you express quickly, accurately, and, too often, sarcastically. You are a valuable helpmate in personal relationships, though a need to avoid expressing yourself in a superior manner should be recognized and modified to an acceptable level.

Mars in the Eleventh House

(The Campaigner)

You will use your ability to work with people to achieve your personal goals. You may have only a few close friends, because you are too busy enlarging your circle to establish many permanent relationships. You weren’t born to be a team-player, but will find that support is necessary to further your ambitions. Cooperation and coordination should be your key words for success and play a major part in your life-pattern of expansion.

Jupiter in Pisces

(The Benevolent)

No sacrifice is too great for you to make to help someone in need. But, you are extremely impressionable, and must be careful not to absorb and experience the ills of others as your own. Whether you receive the same compassion you give is immaterial. You serve cheerfully and derive your greatest satisfaction from seeing the positive results of your efforts.

Jupiter in the Fifth House

(The Sensualist)

Your feelings are deep and significant and are always a reflection of who you truly are. You express yourself eloquently, like an artist, who works in larger-than-life strokes. You experience true love as a spiritual transformation. Like Michelangelo, you find angels in the stone by bringing out the best in the people you meet.

Saturn in Cancer

(The Runner)

You change your environment constantly in the hope of finding the parental love and support you craved in childhood. New environments can never replace deeply-ingrained emotions that refuse to die. Put away “childish things.” Remember them lovingly, and not with sadness that they are no longer valid. In assuming adult responsibility, you will establish a new rapport with comforting flesh — that of creating your own home and family, which is more fulfilling, still.

Saturn in the Ninth House

(The Thinker)

You probably have the self-confidence usually born of long experience, no matter your age. Your powers of concentration enable you to absorb the essentials of life in great chunks. A career in law may satisfy your sense of justice. However, inherent knowledge may preclude the experience to utilize it. If your viewpoint seems narrow, look for ways to augment it. Like the Bluebird, you may find them waiting in your own back yard.

Uranus in Libra

(The Bohemian)

You have artistic talent and appreciate modern, as well as traditional forms. You are intelligent, ambitious and determined, but may change your goals too often. Your creative imagination and intuitive gifts blend well. Relationships are trying, as you choose unlikely companions. You make enemies because of unusual ideas, independence and your caustic wit. Once your efforts are channeled, you may attract opportunities that will lead to the success you have dreamed of.

Uranus in the First House

(The Eccentric)

You are a unique individual, capable of changing from moment to moment. It is difficult for you to accept conventional approaches to education or religion. Many friends admire your spirit, but few claim to know what makes you “tick.” You experience life on a very personal level. Learn to distinguish between rebellion and anarchy. The first may lead to growth while the second is destructive without a thought to replacing what you have wantonly destroyed.

Neptune in Sagittarius

(The Sage)

You have a talent for understanding human nature and an uncanny ability to know what makes people “tick.” You are a perpetual student, and a gifted teacher. Your thirst for knowledge will prompt you to travel extensively. Try to remember that you must accept the customs of another country before they will accept you. Your beliefs are unconventional. You will continue to learn by experience and teach in love as did Plato, Socrates and their descendants in spirit.

Neptune in the Second House

(The Squanderer)

You are indeed the grasshopper of Aesop’s Fables, tending to spend more than you earn without a thought for what tomorrow may bring. It is hard to define your values. Though you lean toward the spiritual, you find it irresistible to accumulate beautiful, but useless objects. Try to establish a habit of thrift in your early years. Distinguish between “wanting” and “needing” before you open your generous purse once too often and find yourself in the Poor House!

Pluto in Libra

(The Rational)

As peacemaker, it is second-nature to act as liaison in fostering partnerships that contribute to world-harmony. Your high intellect and demand for justice may place you in public service where you can aid worthy causes by your involvement. Your love of truth may influence big business, where deceit will be overcome with honor. On an individual level, all this may be accomplished by setting an example through the simple amenities you practice every day.

Pluto in the Twelfth House

(The Intellectual)

You tend to rationalize hidden feelings that prompt you to embark on programs of self-analysis, when you should go with an urge to seek the advice of someone in whom you can confide your secret thoughts. Otherwise, without a productive way to vent the tremendous powers of your subconscious mind, you may encounter serious difficulties which will damage and inhibit your gift of using “mind over matter” to solve your problems and help others who need your support.

Cancer Midheaven

You will be attracted to a career which allows you to maintain strong family ties. A career which allows you to be nurturing or productive will give you emotional and creative satisfaction. You are good at sensing and supplying the needs of the public. Security is important to you. It can cause you to value money for its own sake rather than for what it will buy. Recognize that security also comes from loyalty and honesty in your business relationships. You are capable of making personal sacrifices in order to nurture the growth of those with whom you work.

Although you are good at switching careers because of your good sense of timing, avoid an indiscriminate, profligate lifestyle which would leave you with no permanent home base or relationship bonds. You need to have a home of your own and a settled existence. If you were the proprietor of a little shop, this could be a second home for you.

Occupations consistent with your nurturing style of work include home- or family-oriented businesses, restaurant owner or manager, real-estate broker, jobs connected with fluids or the public, politician, teacher, counselor, manufacturer, musician, entertainer, dancer, art dealer, advertiser, marketer, nurse or doctor. For the most personal career guide, also consider the nature of any planets which fall in the 10th house or conjoin the Midheaven, the sign and house placements of the moon, ruler of the Midheaven, and any aspects which other planets make to the Midheaven.

North Node in Sagittarius

(The Fence Sitter)

You are afraid to make choices that may put you in the wrong. Until you voice an opinion or convictions that are yours alone, you will not have earned the independence you desire. Experience teaches that conflict often results from indifference. Restore others’ confidence by repairing breaks in links of faith with the solder of concern and wisdom.

North Node in the Second House

(The Appraiser)

You question the value of everything and may be envious of what others possess. You MUST establish what is meaningful to YOU! You can’t siphon happiness and make it your own. A fear that time is against you may produce feelings of inadequacy, but once you believe that you deserve what you get, you will make every effort to win rewards for good works.

Planets in Aspect

Venus trine Neptune (Strength: 5.91)

(The Union)

Your gentle spirit and creative mind blend to create idealistic inspiration. You can be self-deluding, and credit yourself with qualities of an ideal mate. As you can forgive shortcomings, you will be upset if others fault your image of perfection or deny you the same generous compassion you extend. Project realism and allow time to discover reality in relationships before commitment. You contribute much as a partner and deserve better than to live in an illusion.

Mars opposite Jupiter (Strength: 5.78)

(The Affected)

You often try to impress others with your abilities, which can come off as idle boasting or narcissism. Or, you may feel discriminated against, which can be the result of selfishly pursuing your aims over the feelings of others. You sometimes respond to promises of extravagant rewards which may not materialize and tend to overreact emotionally, which is a sure way to lose a battle. Utilize your positive energy and assert your independence to make things happen “your way.”

Jupiter trine Saturn (Strength: 5.64)

(The Shrewd)

Little escapes your notice, and you believe in giving the same attention to details as to the larger picture. You realize your potential and are realistic in your ability to achieve your goals. You can make-do with little or manipulate your investments and holdings to advantage. You seldom shirk responsibility and try to do what is expected of you, even if it means going an “extra mile.” With your willingness to learn as you earn, you have every chance for success.

Moon conjunct Pluto (Strength: 4.78)

(The Compulsive)

Experience can be a valuable, if expensive teacher, and is your proving ground, no matter your age. With your intensity of purpose, you can be in over your head before you know it. Relationships can be confusing and must be significant or you won’t be interested. A desire for “one-upmanship” can tempt you to manipulate others, but remember, the one who decides to stop the game usually wins. Try to understand your feelings to put things in perspective.

Moon sextile Venus (Strength: 4.49)

(The Nurturer)

Love for your fellow man makes it difficult for you to dislike anyone you meet. You give others the benefit of the doubt and are disappointed only in your lack of judgment if they do not measure up to your expectations. You may prefer to entertain at home and your friends welcome your invitations to visit. Self-indulgence can include the satisfaction you derive from caring for others. But, you must be careful not to resent those who do not return your generosity in kind.

Moon sextile Neptune (Strength: 4.41)

(The Perceptive)

Your senses are highly evolved so that you feel the “vibrations” of others. You may also see colors, or “auras,” but unless you cultivate these gifts carefully, they may turn against you as delusions. Avoid those who project negativity or it can infiltrate your character and weaken your gifts. Unless your abilities are recognized and encouraged, you will eventually become afraid of them or lose them altogether, as they need positive development to take full advantage.

Sun conjunct Mercury (Strength: 3.67)

(The Conversationalist)

You express your opinions and ideas well, and may preface each sentence with “I”, since your focus is on yourself. If you are promoting your interests commercially, you will get your point across, but should listen to the views of others to enhance your chances of success. You enjoy travel and meeting with people to exchange ideas. You are a natural teacher. If you show a flair for writing, voicing your opinions may be useful and is often the mark of a successful columnist.

Mars sextile Saturn (Strength: 3.42)

(The Informed)

You realize your capabilities and are willing to work carefully for lasting results. You do not take work loads as burdens, but as opportunities to improve your worth. Your perseverance commands the respect, and sometimes attracts the dismay of others who lack your willingness to satisfy demands. You may be considered a “bookworm” or put your energies into serious tasks that others disdain, but are sure to have the last laugh when rewards are passed out.

Sun sextile Uranus (Strength: 2.91)

(The Changeable)

You are interested in “everything in the universe,” adapt to new circumstances and absorb fresh ideas quickly, but are lacking in follow-through and self-discipline. “Up-front” in your attitude, you express yourself well as an individual. You can be a faithful friend, but your partners must accept your chameleon-like qualities. You see resistance to change as an intolerable restriction, since you view it as a key to improving your life and the lives of others.

Uranus conjunct Ascendant (Strength: 2.51)

(The Expectant)

You are eager for the new or innovative, original in your personal goals and assume that you will achieve them. “Nothing is impossible,” because you visualize your needs and are objective enough to succeed, without becoming entangled in your emotions. You may feel partnerships are too restrictive to fit into your ever-expanding plans for the future. Freedom is important, but not at the risk of alienating you from those who would share your dreams and rejoice in your fulfillment.

Neptune sextile Pluto (Strength: 2.37)

(The Self-aware)

It is important that you have the support of your family and friends. You are extremely sensitive and subject yourself to self-criticism that can be destructive and depressing. It may be that you need professional help to build your self-esteem. Later, you may transfer your intense feelings into knowledge you share with others. You may pursue a career in psychiatry or psychology, but will continue to investigate your own psyche for answers as to what “makes you tick.”

Venus sextile Pluto (Strength: 2.29)

(The Enhancer)

You value friends who inspire you to improve your status in life and will make necessary changes to please them. You continually experience dramatic periods of regeneration through interactions with others. An intensity of purpose motivates you to always be your personal best. You use your image to attract those you most desire. Time or monies invested do not matter if the results are apparent.

Balance of Elements and Modalities

Abundant Air

You seem to live for mental exploration. Discovering and communicating the connections between ideas, people, and places is your function in life. Your active mind is good at identifying new frontiers whose basics you quickly master, so that you end up knowing something about almost everything. You have a dispassionate nature that cooly considers the pros and cons of a situation, able to place logic above personal emotion. From your mental viewpoint, emotions look irrational. You make a good negotiator, sales person, communicator, arbitrator, analyst, and information processor. Ideas flow quickly for you. While impersonal and dispassionate, you nonetheless thrive on communication and social interaction. At your best, you strive to understand and accept people, not to change them. Courageously, you adhere to principles. You appreciate culture, structure, and systems.

Your greatest strength is also your weakness, namely too much coolness from placing head above heart. Leaders must be able to follow their hearts without being indecisive or equivocating. And you ignore your real connection to others if you use your mental gifts to coldly manipulate them. Try to avoid isolation by functioning as part of a team in which your logic, analysis, and communication skills are put to good use. Work with others who may be more practical, sensitive, or passionate than are you. Don’t keep your good ideas inside, but write them down and communicate them to others.

Abundant Fire

You are an active, future-oriented person who is not weighed down by past commitments. You take advantage of new opportunities better than most. Life for you can be a vibrant affair in which you passionately pursue causes, lovers, and experiences. You have the self-confidence to be a leader. Competitive and flamboyant, you have little patience for slow people or unexciting work. When an activity interests you, you can be very generous with your time, energy, and money. Find outlets for your gifts of creativity and intuition.

Watch out for a tendency to exaggerate or to be insensitive to others’ feelings. More cautious types may envy and resent your free spirit and competitive nature. You get bored easily and may depend on others to finish the projects that you start. When your warmth is guided by love, wisdom, and positive goals you have the ability to heal and inspire others, but when you focus on your self or lack direction, your short-lived passions can affect others in destructive ways.

Lack of Water

For you the world of feelings may be terra incognita. Close interpersonal relations, which require the expression of feelings, and empathy for others’ feelings, do not come naturally or easily for you. You have difficulty putting yourself in someone else’s shoes in order to feel what they feel. You will learn how to deal with life in a tough, mental sort of way. People looking for someone to empathize with them should not come to you. Those people who are comfortable with you are not looking for emotional closeness. It’s not that you don’t have emotions and feelings, but they do not come out easily in your relationships. If you are an artist, they may come out in your art. You probably take refuge from the difficulty of forming emotional connections by concentrating on intellectual, practical, or inspired activity. Your best companions would be those who are able to inhabit these realms with you, but who are also in touch with their feelings. They can help you to contact your own feelings and teach you to respect and honor other people’s feelings.

A lack of planets in Water signs can be offset by a Water sign ascendant or by abundant planets in the houses of Endings.

Lack of Earth

You may be so focused on the “bigger picture” that you have difficulty managing the many details of life. Balancing your checkbook or leaving your bedroom clean may seem beyond your abilities. Other tasks may be important, but you find it hard to concentrate long enough to complete them. Knowing your own lack of concentration and self-discipline, you may cling to established routines because you know that you are able to do important things through force of habit. If you do not flit from job to job, you could hold onto a job or a relationship for too long because you do not trust that you will be secure without it. Your lack of real world perspective may make it hard for you to distinguish that which really matters from that which is unimportant, so that you sometimes focus on small things while leaving the really big things undone. You may say that you care about money, but unless you have abundant planets in the houses of Substance, you will not execute a detailed plan to get it. If you can avoid driving them crazy, enlist the help of those more grounded than yourself in order to turn your inspirations into reality.

A lack of planets in Earth signs can be offset by an Earth sign ascendant or by abundant planets in the houses of Substance.

Abundant Relationships

With abundant planets in these houses, relationships and communications with others are likely to be central to your life. You can help others by exchanging ideas and making connections between people. You will probably maintain active contact with a wide circle of relatives, friends and acquaintances. You keep abreast of new information via various media and your friends.

Lack of Substance

You are not the most grounded or practical person. The rules of this material world are not well known to you. Others may admire your dreams, but they could be impossible dreams. You may find it difficult to choose, plan, and work towards a career or vocation.

A lack of planets in the houses of Substance can be offset by abundant planets in Earth signs.

Abundant Cardinal

With an abundance of planets in the Cardinal signs, you find it easy to function on your own as an autonomous individual. You have a pretty good grasp of how the real world works, which you may have acquired through your willingness to try new things. An active person, you find challenges stimulating. Success comes through big ventures that others are too intimidated to attempt. You would make a good entrepreneur, but look for other indications in your chart to see if you have the qualities needed to stay with a project or grow a business. You’re not really a team player. You are likely to encounter some problems in your life as a result of being so one-sidedly focused on your own goals and activities. But you are good at overcoming problems. Personal survival is important to you and you are capable of learning. You manifest your love through a lack of fear that makes the future happen.

Abundant Succedent

An abundance of planets in the succedent houses increases your ability to enjoy life. In turn, you can give others pleasure. You are a basically stable person with strong values, feelings, and attachments. You enoy working to build the structure of your life. As you gain confidence in your self, you bind others to you with love. You have a strong physical presence.

Lack of Angular

A lack of planets in the angular houses indicates little desire or drive for recognition. You adapt to the world instead of trying to change it or make your mark upon it. You concentrate on enjoying life and find ways to help others that do not call attention to yourself.

A lack of planets in the Angular houses can be offset by abundant planets in the Cardinal signs.
