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."
Aug 12, 2006 1st Pass D> (Age 42 2m)
The date(s) (above) indicate the end of a very outward and perhaps successful period of years for you, during which you may have had an opportunity to establish yourself both in career and reputation. You may find yourself becoming less interested in the outer and social world and more interested in your own inner changes. There will be less of an impulse for recognition along with a growing sense of being by yourself and enjoying it. This coming time will be less outward and may call for a change of approach and perhaps life style. This is not a time of outreach, not the best point to start any great projects. Instead you may wish to consolidate what you now have, pull back a bit, and prepare for a number of years of a more inward and personal nature. This will be a time of introspection, and you may find yourself letting go of plans and projects started in a more outward phase but as yet uncompleted. You may take an interest in your own psyche, religion, and spiritual ideas. This is a time to absorb and take in new impressions and information. In summary, here is a natural breaking-point in life, a time to let go of what has been occupying you for the last years and assume a new attitude. Many people find themselves withdrawing socially and enjoying their own company. In summary: This marks a more inward period that will last 6-7 years, during which you may feel insecure and on your own. Don't expect to make great headway in the outer, social world. Bide your time and prepare for your "coming out" a few years 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.
Your inner self-confidence may be lacking, and you could try to overcome this by defensive aggressiveness. You probably wish you had more of the self-assurance your fiery acquaintances have.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
Your imagination and sense of idealism are near-perfect and true. You are at home in all things mystical or religious, and have this as a natural talent. You have a low burn rate and have clear vision in these realms.
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
There may be a tendency for you to get caught up in one mental syndrome or another, coming up to the same problem over and over. And while it may be easy for others to see your problems and to point them out to you, you may have difficulty overcoming them.
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.
The Key to your Personality
Outwardly you are intense and passionate, and this quality is so essential to your character that all else revolves around it. Your ability to cut through the superficial and get to the real heart of things comes through loud and clear. There are no secrets with you. You always get right down to the nitty-gritty and lay things bare. Your lifestyle may find you burning through a lot of changes.
The Personal Hot Spot
Emotions and drive take the heat as far as being a prime focus for action in your personal sphere.
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 have a love affair going with the mind and you value all of its offspring: words, ideas, thoughts, and such. And you love to talk. In particular you appreciate good conversation, and you feel that stimulating mental adventures (either alone or with others) are among the most exciting experiences life offers. You have a built-in sense of discrimination when it comes to the intellect -- all mental activities.
Venus Inc Mercury
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.
Venus Dis Pluto
You value the simple life and have little use for pomp and circumstance. Your appreciation for hard work and discipline is natural and lifelong. You actually love responsibility and tend to pile on the work. Others may find you frugal or unnecessarily Spartan, but you love simplicity as much as they love opulence. You can discriminate the wheat from the chaff and put great value on organization.
Venus Inc Saturn
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.
Mars Dis Pluto
You have the mind of a lawyer, always able to size up a problem and come up with a solution. Using your mind to negotiate obstacles and handle dilemmas (your own or those of others), is a great talent. You have an innate ability to guide and lead others through the hurdles and hassles of life. You could be very much in demand as a counselor. You are a problem-solver.
Jupiter Inc Mercury
Your career is smooth until the question of personal freedom comes up. Successful career moves may demand conformity and cost you personal freedom, perhaps toning down your unconventional habits. You may have to conform and go along in order to get the right job. This is a source of some tension, and your tendency to rebel can get you in hot water every time.
Jupiter Dis Uranus
You have real difficulties when it comes to matters of self-discipline. Your career suffers due to your lack of training and education. You go against authority, clashing with it rather than finding a way to work with and learn from it. You end up taking an unplanned course of action that lacks any organization and seldom holds up for long. Taking the easy way out can be very painful. You come back to square one again and again.
Jupiter Dis Saturn
You have real vision and insight into the unity that ties this world together. Your brilliant imagination and enchanting manner transport all who meet you beyond the mundane and into the extraordinary regions where you spend a lot of your time. You are a seer, in the true sense of the word, and possess a waking experience of that part of us that is mystical and dreamlike. You find new ways to bring people together, to unify situations. Unusual music.
Uranus Inc Neptune
You place a high value on your dreams and ideals and don't consider them otherworldly or impossible. You experience the unity around you -- that which joins things together. There is a love of the sea and of whatever solves that which separates us. Mysticism, mythology, poetry, and music are natural. These are all known items to you. People who encounter you may sometimes feel deceived by your remarkable vision, which they enjoy when they are with you but find hard to maintain by themselves. They wish the world were like you say it is.
