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

A fairly easy childhood up until around the 11-12th year, at which time you will begin to become more subjective and inner-directed. This could mean that your adolescence is somewhat more lonely and less socially oriented than the average. This inner time of exploration lasts until you are about 18-19 years of age. At that time, you will proceed to take hold, discover yourself, and become more outward -- in a rather short time. Your sense of confidence will take hold and build, and the years of introspection will pay off as you begin to reach out. The years from 18 through 25 or 26 will be ones of hard work and continued gains in self-confidence. From the 26th year, your real climb to fame and fortune will commence. Your 30s and 40s will be very good and successful years.

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."

Dec 12, 2008 1st Pass D> (Age 62 11m)
Jan 20, 2009 2nd Pass R< (Age 63 1m)
Aug 19, 2009 3rd Pass D> (Age 63 8m)

You are riding a high now in terms of taking advantage of the cycles in your life. This may well be a high-water mark; however, this is also the beginning of a series of years during which you should begin to consolidate and tie down the advances you have made in recent years. It may be best to begin to dig in and strengthen your current position rather than expand outward too much. You will find your mind beginning to turn away from the external (the material) and to be concerned with more inward and spiritual ideas. All of this will become clear over the next several years. This time marks a change of direction for you, away from the material and glitter, toward inner needs and security. You will find yourself more concerned with maintaining and strengthening your position, rather than pushing outward. In summary, a kind of high-water mark in the outward and social department. These years should be easy and filled with opportunities and friendships. Enjoy them. More demanding and inward years will be forthcoming a little further on down the road.

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:

Your positivism lets you get right to the point, and you have little patience with those who shilly-shally. You've plenty of enthusiasm and warm up to things and people quickly. You have an inner self-confidence which burns with its own light.

Have Fire

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.

Want Earth

Not too centered, perhaps not always able to hang in there for the long haul. You might not make a good linebacker. You may tend to be all over the place rather than front and center.

Want Fixed

Your feelings need to be stirred before you can throw yourself whole-heartedly into any venture. Love, ideals, and a strong sense of your own worth are vital to your well-being and ability to function.

Have Succedent

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 FUTURE suggests that you tend to run ahead of the pack, taking changes and acting things out before they become accepted and a part of the status quo. Things happen to you that you come to understand over time.

Planets in High Focus

The mind, and all that is mental, will be the source of continued change and adjustment. Letters, writing, speaking, and all things having to do with communication and cognitive work assume great importance. Your mind tends to be engrossed with thoughts, ideas, and concepts and remains in almost constant flux. Mental learning is an area of preoccupation.


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.


Very clear insight, even genius, when it comes to discovering or inventing things. You were born with this fully operational. It requires no teaching. Your low burn rate in this area indicates an ability in electronics, computers, and so on.


You have a high rate of change when it comes to what you believe in -- your ideals and dreams. You adjust and change your ideals often and struggle not to get carried away with each new vision. The world of your imagination is a major focus of change.


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.

No mistake possible here. With you, the saying "What you see is what you get" is true. You are very much just as you appear to be.

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 Personality

Your personality hangs on your mind, mental activity, and the world of communication. This is the keystone that binds the rest of you together. Ideas, mental things, information exchange, and the interrelating of all these is central to your outer makeup. Communication is the interface that holds the rest of you together.


Your sense of discrimination, the ability to discern gradations and differences, is a crucial element in your personality. You relish and cherish things so. Your value system, the way you enjoy and appreciate everything, is a central factor in your make-up.


The Personal Hot Spot

Emotions and drive take the heat as far as being a prime focus for action in your personal sphere.


You tend to take everything with great intenseness. Your drive to get at the heart and truth of things is constantly invoked, and serves as a common theme in your life.


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 have much trouble organizing your thoughts, and your lack of discipline is a constant hassle to both you and others. Study and mental self-control are not your cup of tea. You can say things that are simply impractical and have trouble limiting yourself to ideas that are down-to-earth, pragmatic. Some of your ideas are just plain irresponsible. Mental hassles can be a constant headache for you.

Mercury Dis Saturn

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.

Mars Inc Venus

You may lack coordination, in particular in relation to making career moves. Your emotions, led by your temper, can send you off in a direction that is anything but where you really want to go. There is a basic struggle between your feelings and your livelihood; therefore, it is important to find work that does not deny your feelings, or they will explode. Acting only on your feelings and doing "whatever you want" with no thought for a plan is also not helpful. Advice from a trusted friend is in order to help coordinate your job and your emotional life.

Mars Dis Jupiter

You may have a tendency to avoid sensitive subjects and to take refuge in duties and responsibilities rather than face issues that might disturb you or put you through some changes. You are a stern pragmatist in all that is psychological -- whatever wells up from inside us. Your need for psychological security and absolute truth in all matters cuts through most chit-chat and settles on core material. You concentrate on deep, inner changes in you and in others -- depth psychology.

Saturn Inc Pluto

You cherish whatever is different and out of the ordinary. The commonplace and the humdrum are not for you. Your friends and surroundings -- everything around you -- must be unconventional to the point of being controversial. You could care less what others think, and this independence is your passion. The way you show affection may also be unusual, and your partners are certainly nonconformist. You set a high value on being different.

Uranus Inc Venus

Anyone who tries to get you to play with words is in for a big surprise. Your mind cuts right through all the window dressing and gets right down to the quick. Before anyone knows it, you have the heart of the matter out front for everyone to see. You would make a great investigator, either in scientific research or undercover work. It makes no difference. Your ability to get to the point is all but phenomenal. You can talk and put into words areas of the psychological that others wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole.
