Above is the birth chart drawing, based on older styles from the medieval and Renaissance periods. I do not include the ‘outer planets’, not because I think they are unimportant, but in the interests of simplicity. If the ‘outer planets’ are prominent by position or aspect, then they are included in the analysis:
Personal Astrological Analysis
At the time you were born the
Rising sign or ascendant was in Gemini
Sun was in Virgo
Moon was in Libra
Mercury was in Virgo
Venus was in Libra
Mars was in Virgo
Jupiter was in Scorpio
Saturn was in Taurus
Uranus was in Libra
Neptune was in Scorpio
Pluto was in Virgo
Astrology is based on the idea of what is seen above in the sky is reflected in our world below: as above, so below.
In astrology, the path of the Sun, called the ecliptic, is divided into twelve zones of 30 degrees, called signs. Twelve is a natural division.
The Signs – what are they?
The signs of the zodiac and their qualities in order are:
Aries, the Ram. Cardinal Fire. Ruler Mars
Taurus, the Bull. Fixed Earth. Ruler Venus
Gemini, the Twins. Mutable Air. Ruler Mercury
Cancer, the Crab. Cardinal Water. Ruler the Moon
Leo, the Lion. Fixed Fire. Ruler the Sun
Virgo, the Virgin. Mutable Earth. Ruler Mercury
Libra, the Balance. Cardinal Air. Ruler Venus
Scorpio, the Scorpion. Fixed Water. Ruler Mars
Sagittarius, the Archer. Mutable Fire. Ruler Jupiter
Capricorn, the Goat. Cardinal Earth. Ruler Saturn
Aquarius, the Water Bearer. Fixed Air. Ruler Saturn
Pisces, the Fishes. Mutable Water. Ruler Jupiter
What are the Houses for?
In astrology there are also the houses. These are based on the signs, the same qualities projected out into the environment of the individual.
For instance, Aries, the first sign is fiery, enterprising. The corresponding house is the first house, which reveals how the individual projects him or herself out into the world, depending on the sign and planets (if any) contained in it.
First house: Appearance, personality
Second house: Finance, security
Third house: Communication, neighbours, siblings
Fourth house: Home, family
Fifth house: Creativity, children
Sixth house: Work, efficiency, health
Seventh house: Relationships
Eight house: Partner’s finance, inheritance
Ninth house: Long distance communication, philosophy
Tenth house: Career, status
Eleventh house: Friendship, association, groups
Twelfth house: Inner life, psychology
According to the data given me, the mutable air sign of Gemini was rising on the eastern horizon when you were born.
The ascendant marks the beginning of the houses, the everyday equivalents of the zodiacal signs.
The ascendant or rising sign is a pointer to our approach to life, what we project more obviously in to the world. It may have something to do with our physical appearance too. We must always bear in mind, however, the positions of the Sun and Moon as well. It is this blend of Sun, Moon, Ascendant, plus any other strong features in the chart which will represent your character.
Ellen, when you were born the mutable air sign of Gemini was rising, your ascendant.
This indicates that you have a versatile, sociable, communicative approach to life. You probably like to keep busy, to have a variety of tasks to perform, as well as plenty of places and people to visit and chat with in and around your community.
Your ruling planet is Mercury, ruler of Gemini. When you were born it was found in Virgo, strongly in connection to (conjunct) Pluto in your fourth house of home and family matters.
I think this augments your Geminian character somewhat, giving you a greater need for efficiency and practicality, essentially bringing down to earth your innate need to do things. You like to busy in functional ways.
You probably don’t like to waste time, not only fill your day with activity, but you like to apportion your time to get the most out of it. You might make lots of lists, or be an avid collector of certain items, like stamps, for instance.
Grasp of Detail
You are likely to have a very good grasp of detail, too, perhaps especially relating to home or family concerns. You should also have very good concentration, taking away any tendency for you to dissipate your energy.
If you were to partake in any activity, like research, for instance, you would be able to give it 100%. You are, despite outward appearances perhaps, a very concentrated person mentally, able to break down ideas and things into their minutest parts and put them back together. And you are likely to insist on a very tidy, well organised home to match the qualities of your mind.
If we now move to your sun sign, Virgo, this of course is the one factor you are already aware of. The combination of your Gemini ascendant and Sun in Virgo (both ruled by Mercury) only increases your potential for communication at practical levels.
You probably have a strong interest in being efficient and so therefore health is absolutely key for you. You probably watch your diet closely and have a fitness regime you stick to. Work too is paramount to your well being – you appear to have a strong need to be busy.
Your Mars is also in Virgo and this will only increase the energy you put into practical detail, perhaps most particularly in the home.
However, just bear in mind that you do need to rest periodically. Your nerves, perhaps more than most people’s, could have a tendency to get fraught because of the demands you may put on yourself. It might be tendency of yours at times to feel overwhelmed with the amount of work and tasks you set out to do.
We now come to the Moon, the third most important factor in your make up.
Your Moon was in Libra when you were born, in the 5th house of creativity and children.
I think this will blend very well with above mentioned factors of your chart. Moon in Libra will add an instinctive charm to your personality, some very personable qualities. You should be quite pleasant to meet, because you like balance emotionally and in the home.
In other words, despite your busy, efficient, work oriented character, you will nevertheless be pleasant to meet socially, in creative activities and with your children.
Venus in Libra also in your fifth house further indicates your love of creative pursuits and possessions, such as art, clothes, music, just beautiful things, which you probably love to share with others and your children.
So when it comes to your career, we have to bear in mind all the above said potential. We spoke your liking to communicate, both mentally and physically, to be busy, versatile, practical, to have variety in your life and work but not waste your time doing it.
The emphasis on communication could have led you in to many types of career.
You might have good linguistic skills too; maybe you can speak one or more foreign languages well – you seem to have the potential for that. This would obviously have opened the door to several careers, from teaching, local government, to diplomatic arenas.
Then there’s the everyday variety and flexibility of something like being a shopkeeper, to delivering goods (where every day will be different), and to being a journalist, out and about covering a wide variety of local, perhaps national stories.
As you have a grasp of detail, plus good concentration, research and investigative work might be particularly suitable for you. This brings to mind investigative journalism and police or legal work.
Behind the Scenes
To add to this, you may also prefer to work busily behind the scenes, in a practical role, that might in some senses resemble a home.
This brings to mind larger institutions, where you will have scope for practical, detailed, concentrative work, which you would excel at – hospitals, or charities for instance. Your pleasant manner of response (Moon in Libra) will help you in these areas too.
The latter is important for you, I think. You may realise you need to develop a career to take you ‘out of yourself’ so to speak, even if it is largely behind the scenes work, away from too much involvement in home and family life, where it is so ‘natural’ for you to function.
In many ways the latter would tend to bring together all the different strands of your character, potentially leading the way to greater self fulfilment.
This brings to an end the general analysis of your birth chart. If you would like more details, or perhaps an in depth discussion about your chart, please don’t hesitate contact me.
Many thanks and kind regards
