Birth Chart for Ron Paul.
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 somewhat of a late bloomer, spending your childhood up until the age of 11-12 in a pleasant and more social frame of mind. At that time you will turn away from the more outward scene and begin to take a greater interest in your inner, subjective life. From the age of 11-12 until perhaps 18-19, you will find yourself ever more on your own, quite inner-directed and always independent. From the age of 19 until 25-26, this will intensify even further and you will examine and explore deep within you. Those who love you may well worry and feel that you are hard to reach and understand. You yourself could feel too much on your own, even alone. This solitary period will end shortly after your 25th year, at which time you will begin to emerge and to build and move outward. Your rise to social and material success will be quite remarkable from that point forward. Your early thirties are years of great success.
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."
Aug 30, 2005 1st Pass D> (Age 70 0m)
Feb 26, 2006 2nd Pass R< (Age 70 6m)
May 13, 2006 3rd Pass D> (Age 70 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:
You're concerned with preserving the status quo and are stable and methodical in your ways of going on. You resist change and may have trouble getting started, but once on the move are indomitable. You mistrust that which is new or untried.
You could have difficulty getting your ideas across to others, sometimes feeling inadequate in matters that require logic or the use of your mental powers. You may have doubts about those who talk too much and seem "long" on ideas.
A solid supporter, always gravitating to the heart of things. You may have trouble getting moving, but once rolling, others better watch out. You have a stick-to-itiveness that always finds you in the thick of things, toughing it out.
Not a great starter, you may have trouble initiating things and getting them moving. You may need help from friends or others in learning how to be more aggressive and outgoing.
Your energies run effectively toward making yourself felt in the material, tangible outer world. You are an "action" person who gains the attention of others and seems to get things moving. The circumstances of your life suggest extroversion.
You may complain of never having any privacy or time to think -- your pattern seems to throw you much in contact with people and the outer world. Being an extrovert, you may have difficulty understanding reclusive types.
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 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 your planets in the PRESENT suggests that right here and now is where you like to be and operate, tending neither to spend much time in procrastinating about the future or reminiscing about the past. You like to BE in the moment, of the day.
Planets in High Focus
You will go through a lot of change regarding personal values -- your ability to appreciate, measure, and appraise things. You may find yourself preoccupied with possessions and the way you feel about them. All matters of value, valuing, and ownership will be the source of continuous learning. Issues of compassion, love, and care are areas that will require learning.
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.
Questions of attitude, approaches to problem-solving, and the methods for handling authorities and the law are in high focus and are indicated by a high burn rate regarding your career and making your way through life. Perhaps you will have many jobs or be forever going through changes and adjustments that affect your career. It could be difficult finding lasting success or prosperity, and the path to it may be areas where you have real experience and particular expertise.
You have a high burn rate when it comes to questions of your independence and autonomy. You tend to rebel and buck authority, and this will be a major source of change and adjustment. You will be concerned with issues of freedom and independence far beyond the average person. A passion for inventions, electronics, and the like can also be expected.
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.
Just being yourself, living your life for the moment, being here now. In some sense, just being yourself is both the goal itself and the means of traveling to that goal. Others sense that your life is important. You are your own reason for being. You are yourself both the end that you are heading for and the way, or vehicle, that gets you there. You, as a being, are yourself the heart and center of all your inner activity. Your dreams, visions, and ideals propel you, but always from within. You follow the inner guide, and your ambitions are true and serve to show the way.
At heart, you have a deep sense of responsibility and purpose, and this seriousness is genuine and felt by others. You seem to gravitate to those things which last and hold true, and are always separating the wheat from the chaff. You manage to get down to the bare bones. Matters of law, religion, and philosophy of the most resolute kind hold your interest.
The Key to your Personality
All things pale beside your basic drive and the emotions you so freely exhibit. Your world revolves around feelings and the meaning you give to things. The way you feel about something is crucial, and if someone doesn't have the right atmosphere or feel right to you, they might as well not be there. Emotions are the glue that holds you together.
The Personal Hot Spot
Your dreams and ideals are the number-one component for action in your chart. Your imagination is crucial to your functioning.
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.
Your value system has little room for the mystical, much less whatever the psychics are talking about. When these things crop up, you cut them off early on. Your position is simple: dreams, images, spiritual thoughts, and what-not are just not your cup of tea. You don't care for them. And yet, this whole subject fascinates you. There is a siren-like quality to all of this, calling and luring you. Sooner or later, this must be worked through.
Venus Dis Neptune
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.
Saturn Inc Mars
You are probably hard to control and very unpredictable. Your drive for independence is obvious, and it is clear that the common and the traditional are not for you. Anything else but that! You pursue alternate or nonconformist solutions to life with great energy. Your temper is hot and sharp and tends to snap out like a lightning bolt. You are aggressive in the pursuit of gaining insight into all that is new, different, and out of the ordinary. Electronics, computers, and communications could be a big part of your life.
Uranus Inc Mars
You have trouble controlling yourself and tend to fluctuate between uninspired routine and crazy binges. Your sense of responsibility and the way you go about organizing your life seem like a prison sentence. You rule out any possibility of change, all spontaneity. You get so set in your ways that you can't help but revolt and break out. Your flings have a total lack of caution. When they die down, you find yourself seeking refuge in the same old routine, and we begin again.
Uranus Dis Saturn
The more disciplined side of you has no time for dreams, visions, and other-worldly stuff. You ignore anything that is not tied down and practical. And yet, all this spiritual stuff has a way of intruding into your real world. You come up against it again and again. You can't live with it, and you can't live without it. It seems you feel that dreams and a more "ideal" life must take a back seat to reality and the (sometimes) drudgery of routine. You keep finding yourself looking out the window.
Neptune Dis Saturn
You have a relentless drive to get at the heart of things, whatever is under the surface or behind the scenes. Your relentless pursuit of anything hidden or secret makes you a researcher or investigator bar none. Emotionally you are also hot stuff, rushing into areas and handling subject matter that others would never come near. Vulnerable issues, sensitive areas of the self, and psychology are the first places you head. This amounts to a passion with you. Those around you may find you just too intense to be around. It puts them through a great many changes.
Pluto Inc Mars
Secrets have a short half-life around you, for you have them out in a wink of an eye. You are brilliant when it comes to insights into the mind, psychology, and motivation -- yours or others'. Your intensity is obvious, and some may prefer to keep their distance rather than subject themselves to your laser eye. Nothing is passed over without being turned inside and out. Your analytical powers are superb, and you enjoy finding new avenues of inner growth.
Pluto Inc Uranus
When you love, you love with energy and passion. You value personal contact, cutting through all the externals and getting to the heart of things. You understand and appreciate vulnerability and have no compunction about presenting your own sensitive spots to others. You enjoy working behind the scenes, getting at secret and hidden areas of the mind and psyche. Changes and transformative experiences are where you like to be most.
