Landscape: Major Life Periods
What follows amounts to a brief overview of the first thirty years or so of your life -- a road map of the years to come. Since childhood, adolescence, and early adult life are so crucial to each of us, an attempt has been made to describe these formative years. Based on the gradual movement of the planet Saturn, this is one of the most tested of all astrological techniques. It is used by almost every professional astrologer as part of any personal consultation. Provided that your time of birth is more or less accurate, you will find this information both accurate and informative. Here is a general life overview, followed by a close-up on your current changes -- what is happening right now. First the overview:
Your Personal Background
You are a late bloomer, and your childhood should be an easy one. However, in your early teens (somewhere around the age of 14-15), you will take a distinct turn toward the more inner and subjective. This could mean a number of years when you feel insecure, very alone, and quite on your own. The years from 14 through 21 or 22 will be times of intense searching and self-examination during which you may not have much outwardly to show others as to who you are or what you can do. You could be perceived as hard to reach, and you may feel that no one recognizes who you are. Fear not, for this is not a long-term condition. In your early to middle twenties, you will have a real awakening (suddenly find yourself), will move outward, and will find something upon which you can build with confidence. Each year afterwards brings a gain in self-confidence and accomplishments. Your most successful years (from 30-40) will bring you material gain and outward recognition. You could reach a peak of fame or success around the 37th or 38th year.
Your Current Situation
Now for a close-up of recent years: while landscape was quite general, the dates given in this close-up should be much more precise. Life is composed of sections of time, each devoted to one kind of activity or another. We go along for a while in one direction until something changes within (or outside) us and we head off in a new course. Some of our earlier activities dry up and new ones spring up in their place. What follows is an analysis of the time period in which you find yourself now. Don't look here for a day-to-day account of life but rather to get a picture of this stretch of time, "these years."
Jul 04, 2004 3rd Pass D> (Age 22 5m)
The dates above point to the end of a period of about seven years during which you may have been very inward and self-absorbed -- quiet, subjective years. Information that you have been examining and thinking about will now begin to take shape and prove useful to you. This next period is one of action and embarking on new projects. You will feel more and more confident and outgoing, a sense of confidence that grows stronger with each passing day. Things that may have been in suspended animation for many years will now precipitate and take on structure and shape. These next years are ones in which you should plan to work hard to bring out and give shape to the ideas you have pored over these last 6-7 years. You are beginning to really move forward now and can expect rewards to take an outward career, and social form within a few years. A growing self-confidence. In summary, from this time forward, expect a more confident, outgoing attitude, for you have brought to a close a time of inward examination and learning. A growing sense of direction and self-worth will find you reaching out and establishing yourself.

The Elements, Modalities and Angularity
Elements, modalities, and house quadrants. These are all techniques used by astrologers to gain a general picture of how a person measures up. How do your planets and houses total up? Which do you have in abundance, and which do you lack, if any? Those with high totals show what we can or must do in life. These are qualities we have. However, most people are more interested by what they lack or want -- their lowest totals. They tend to study their "wants," imitate, and even pretend to have them. The old adage is: we become what we want (or lack), while we do what we can (or have to do). Here are your totals:
There is an emphasis on communication, expression of ideas, and the connections between things, places, and people. What goes on in your mind is the all-important motivation in your life. You tend towards mental pursuits and admire intelligence.
Common sense and the ability to deal with practical matters may be lacking, and you may wonder at those who spend much time making money, doing life's chores, and attending to basic necessities. You depend on mental activity and confidence.
You are an aggressive prime mover, a starter, able to initiate and get things moving. Not always hot on the follow-up, you may tend to get the ball rolling and get out to move on to other things.
You may lack flexibility, managing a foot-in-the-mouth when you least need it. You could have trouble adapting to situations or to the demands of those around you. Perhaps it is not easy for you to communicate or smooth over things.
Circumstances can throw you into positions where you must use your mind and deal with communications, service, or enclosed hidden interests. You may deal with education, psychology, spiritual enlightenment or teaching principles and techniques.
You are inclined to do things from outer necessity rather than for emotional or idealistic reasons. Your theories and mental activities may be fine, but you may lack heart or the fixedness (or the necessary time) to let things ripen.
Your Burn Rate
We all change, but the question is: At what rate? Some of us tear through change after change, one phase following another, year after year, while others move at a more serene pace. Or, one area of our lives may be hectic and forever changing, while other areas are quite tranquil. Why do some people seem to live lifetimes within lifetimes? Here is an analysis of your particular rate of change or "burn rate," including the particular areas of your life (planets) where you can expect continued change and growth. Areas where there is a very low index of change (indicating clear and easy use of the qualities involved) will also be pointed out. If you have sometimes wondered about the areas of your life where the candles burn at both ends, here are the details.
You have a very high burn rate (index of change) and tend to run hot and fast. It is almost like having many lifetimes within this single one. Things are always fast and furious with you, and you seldom remain calm for long. Your thirst for experience and growth keeps you always on the move. You work through an enormous amount of change compared to an average person. In particular, the following qualities are areas where you have experienced and will continue to experience much change. These areas of life persist in presenting themselves to you, so you may already have become very experienced in them. On the other hand, they could be arenas in which you struggle but have not yet attained mastery.
A majority of planets in the PAST suggests that you are comfortable with established values. You know and understand more than you let on, and life changes seldom take you by surprise. You have a great deal of control over your actions.
Planets in High Focus
Emotional change and growth will be in high focus and amount to a constant in your life. A high burn rate here suggests that feelings, motivation, and sheer drive will be a trademark as well as a source of continual experience and learning. You find yourself in constant change in matters of feelings, and emotional scenes are part of your stock and trade. Experience in these realms will be extensive.
There are big changes (high burn rate) throughout your life in matters of organization and responsibility. It may be difficult for you to learn to be thorough, to finish things, and take care of all the loose ends. You may have a lot to learn regarding what is and what is not essential in life -- separating the wheat from the chaff. Getting down to the nitty-gritty, the bare bones of the matter, could well be a major lesson.
You have a high burn rate (go through a lot of changes) when it comes to sensitive, psychological areas of your life or times when you are feeling vulnerable. Direct confrontation tends to put you through a lot. You prefer diplomacy but find yourself in the midst of sticky situations on a regular basis.
Patterns: Your Inner and Outer Self
Here we are examining your basic attitude or approach to life, what is called by some the archetype or soul-type. If you know something about your particular soul-type, this can provide valuable information as to the general direction and purpose of your life. In particular, it is important to note the difference, if any, between our outer personality (the way we appear to others) and our real inner self; how are we, in fact, as people get to know us? Not all people are as they seem.
You are not what you appear to be. Your personality, the way the world sees you, appears more independent and outgoing than is the case when people get to know you. An extroverted manner screens a more inward and quiet-seeking self. In other words, you are much more sensitive and concerned about what others think than meets the eye. Although your outer personality may look tough and self-centered, you are more sensitive to the needs and feelings of others than you let on. Whereas your appearance and personality may bring you unwanted attention, the real you prefers to stay out of the limelight. Appearances aside, let's take a look at the real or inner you.

Your Soul Type
You are the eternal patron of just about anyone who will let you look after them -- the original mother hen. You need to feel useful and wanted and are never happy unless you are active and involved. Always the host, you find yourself (in most situations) caring for and taking care of others. In fact, you may tend to worry about others -- making a good impression -- too much. Not content to let others judge you on appearance alone, you would rather be judged by your actions, by what you have done or can do. You are most happy when you can do something for someone and aren't above keeping others in your debt. Your general sense of concern for everything makes you invaluable when anything needs doing and, if left unoccupied, you have been known to even worry for worry's sake. Given only a few facts, you are able to take in a situation and come up with a real picture of what is happening. Never happier than when fully engaged. You will tend to find yourself in responding to others. You can always put your ideas into words and describe or analyze situations for yourself and others. Chances are you will work in one of the many service occupations, taking care of and looking after people. You may feel empty or that there is not much to you, particularly in a group situation where you will not tend to be the center of attention or a great entertainer. Your mind and caring attitude are what others find attractive in you.
You are born to love and care for others and may tend to worry overmuch. Your fear of being left out or not being fully used up in this life can be alleviated by much hard work, by jumping in with both feet and putting your thoughts into action.
The Key to your Inner Life
Each person has one or more key qualities. Here we are not referring to our appearance or personality, but rather to our inner nature, how we are when someone really gets to know us.
Your most essential quality has to do with the very real love and compassion you radiate. Your sense of values and sheer appreciation for life are communicated to all who come to know you. Beyond whatever external considerations may be present, you exude a contagious thankfulness and fondness for things and people. These inner, loving qualities are experienced as a very real good.
In a word, it is your emotions and gusto that hold your innermost self together. Your feelings are not just important, they are central to getting to really know you. A strong devotional nature becomes apparent to anyone who takes time to know the real you. All else follows upon this inner drive and energy. The search for a mate, and marriage in particular, are crucial for you. You are driven to unite and find out what togetherness means.
The Key to your Personality
Your ambitions and goals are central to your character. Much of your personal life hinges on pursuing your own growth and success. Your very essence and self are most central. Other talents and activities seem to be subservient to these.
The key to understanding your personality and the circumstances in which you find yourself can be found in the environment or support system that surrounds you. You are very much the creature of habit and habitat, and the encircling network of friends, relationships, and what-not are crucial to your success or lack thereof. You are nourished in great measure by the atmosphere and conditions you are able to set up.
The Personal Hot Spot
Your mind (all that is mental) mark the single most active factor in your make-up. The key spot in your personality and circumstances is your mind (the world of ideas and communication).
Interface: Innermost qualities
This feature is based on an intricate analysis of the position of a particular planet in relation to the orbital planes of the other planets. The resulting series of crossings, or nodes, tells us something about the nature of our innermost inclinations (Inc) and disinclinations (Dis). These indicators are not to be considered at the level of our personality, but rather are deep-seated parts of our innermost character -- our internal biases. These pros and cons are not apt to change in the course of our lifetime.
You enjoy life yourself and value gusto and enthusiasm in those around you. Feelings are something you express with ease, and you appreciate others doing the same. Emotional drama is valued rather than avoided. Your appetite for action is probably well known, and well noted. Sports, outdoor activities, and everything physical are high on your list of favorites. Sex is, no doubt, also important.
Venus Inc Mars
You are responsible to the extreme, always taking on obligations and pushing yourself to the limit. You pursue your obligations with much emotion and obvious enthusiasm. You are Spartan when it comes to your needs and surroundings. Small and less are beautiful for you. If anything, you try too hard and tend to force things. Others may find your approach severe and hurtful at times. You can be too sober and frugal.
Mars Inc Saturn
Your very organized self tends to hide behind duties and responsibilities. This no-nonsense approach manages to push aside many opportunities for others to reach out to you and get close. You resist getting personal and tend to avoid issues that are touchy and might result in confrontation and change. There could be eruptions that overturn all of the more orderly rituals.
Saturn Dis Pluto
Your tendency to compromise and settle for less than you dreamed can be a problem. Given the opportunity, you may choose the path of least resistance, willing to bypass some of the things you always wanted in favor of expediency. Career moves must be given special attention. Tension results when you ignore your own desires (the things you need and want) and take a course of action, job, career, or whatever that can never satisfy. Or worse, you may find yourself in a job that is compromising.
Neptune Dis Jupiter
There could be a lot of emotional tension with this combination. You tend to set yourself against whatever forces of change manage to rear their heads around you. This is never more true than where your feelings are concerned. Your attempt to remain untouched and impersonal seems doomed to failure. Everything intrudes, gets too personal, and threatens to hurt your feelings. Your insistence on being an emotional island is probably interspersed with bursts of anger, even fits of rage.
Pluto Dis Mars
Your passion for freedom and independence stops short of the personal and private areas of your life. You don't feel so free when things get psychological and analytical. You tend to rebel against all interaction that gets close and personal. Feeling vulnerable or exposed causes you to freak out and break away.
Pluto Dis Uranus
You are unruffled and like things calm and impersonal. Polite, but not too close, and never personal. You don't appreciate displays of emotion, and any attempts at analysis meet with the cold cut-off. It is as if all vulnerable issues do not, and never did, exist. Your surveillance sees to that. However, the stuff of gossip fascinates and calls to you from across the void. You hate it, but you love it. There is a lot of unrest built around this issue.
Pluto Dis Venus
You can get stuck in jobs that go nowhere from the point of view of personal growth and change. You tend to wall yourself into a position until nothing can reach or touch you. A lot of tension results, a blow-up occurs, and the whole thing happens again. While it is difficult for you to approach your sensitive areas, it is of great importance that you be able to do so. Here is a situation where one good therapy or another can be of real help.
