Sullen v.5




Monday, December 11, 2006

I have a preoccupation with "introspection" (as stated in the "other traits" section). I think this is what leads me to examine astrology sometimes, just for a curiosity in regard to something that can further explain qualities about myself. I never use astrology to *predict* events (horoscopes are fun, but I don't think there is any legitimacy to them); however, I *do* think there is some crazy legitimacy to the personality-factor (Carl Jung and other psychologists actually derived much of their scientifically-proven research in re: to personality from astrological methods). I found this generous site --> I say generous because it is not often that you can get a general report specific to your birthtime for free. I would never pay for this stuff, so yeah.. I enjoyed the site because I can definitely see how *much more* eerily accurate it is according to my birthtime. :P

***General personality***

Born under the sign of Aquarius, you are independent and progressive. Your individualistic nature could express itself in the form of a rather special and somewhat different lifestyle. Although you can relate to all kinds of people regardless of their life direction or interests, you are not likely to be influenced into following in their footsteps. You have the ability to detach yourself and view the world from outside. A rebel by nature, you find rules and tradition especially uncomfortable since they tend to restrict your original imagination. Basically kind and eager to help, you have the happy knack of knowing when it is needed, and you give it freely without ulterior motives.
Sagittarius rising produces a personality that is restless, outgoing, and very independent. This Ascendant is one that produces goal oriented individuals; people with a long-range outlook and philosophical attitude. Your ambitions are geared to those long-range and large-scale goals. Simultaneously, you are apt to have a positive and optimistic outlook. You feel matters will turn out okay, no matter how large the challenge may be. You have strong urges to cover vast distances, both physically and mentally. Usually, everything does turn out well for you. Your "Ruling" planet is Jupiter, the "great benefic." Jupiter is considered the luckiest planet in the zodiac. It produces a personality characterized by humor and a happy-go-lucky disposition. You have a need to experience life fully in a variety of ways. Open and friendly, you are usually cheerful, interested, and jovial. One difficulty that you may have from time to time is that you to take everything and everyone for granted. You don't like dealing with pessimistic or emotional people, and you don't want the burden of dealing with their problems. You don't even like dealing with your own problems, often ignoring them with an attitude that if you don't acknowledge these situations, they will go away. There may be a fear of disappointment in your makeup that can prevent you from seeing your path to success clearly. Although you are an excellent abstract thinker, you are also very much an outdoor person. You love nature. In this vein, you are a very spiritual person who can tune in to the higher forces in life simply by taking a walk in the woods. You are a very direct person. Your speech can be blunt and to the point, often lacking in tact and diplomacy. Your reasoning powers are superb. To be fulfilled, you need a constant challenge and goal. If these two factors are combined in effective ways in your life, you may do much. This sign enjoys the good fortune of having thought patterns that remain young and fresh throughout life. Your outlook won't become jaded by time or turmoil.

You tend to jump to premature conclusions on impulse and later discover you made a mistake in judgement. On the other hand, this ability to make instinctive decisions could also be a strength. You are emotionally restless, and may lack "emotional staying power". As a result you probably have a wide circle of contacts, but few truly intimate ones. Your behaviour might be a bit inconsistent, since it depends so much on your emotional state at any given moment. You want to be fair in your dealings with other people, but you nevertheless assert your own feelings whether you are right or wrong. Try to consider the needs of others as well.

Your actions are to a large extent guided by your emotions, and this can cause you to overreact to situations or to be unrealistic. You have terrific determination, being able to persist longer than most people. You are not quick to anger, but once aroused you will not let up until victory is certain, and you can be vindictive toward anyone who crosses you.

A negative aspect formed between the Sun and Saturn shows strong ambitions. There is also a fear and expectation of rejection. You are naturally defensive, and in your early years you may have underestimated your potential and questioned your self-worth. Your road to success may be paved with a few setbacks that you must learn to handle and overcome. As you mature, self-assurance becomes stronger, and you develop the personal relationships that may have been difficult for you earlier. In maturity you possess the excellent business qualities of being steady, skeptical, and persistence. You are likely to carry a heavy load of responsibility throughout your life.

A negative aspect formed between the Moon and Jupiter shows a state of emotional excess. This aspect causes you to make hasty, sometimes regrettable decisions. Often, you have a lack of concern about what others think when you make snap judgments and irresponsible decisions on too few facts. You are self-indulgent, and frequently too indulgent of others, as well. You can be generous to a fault, periodically finding yourself short of needed funds. Your happy-go-lucky demeanor makes you popular, but not always stable. Mood swings vacillate between periods of intense enthusiasm and periods of nonproductive apathy. This is a difficult aspect that requires constant restraint and effort to gain balance and moderation. This placement has a dampening effect on any ambitions shown elsewhere in the chart, and must be overcome before success can be attained.

The conjunction of Mars and Saturn shows that you can use your energies constructively. Any tendency shown elsewhere in your chart to act on impulse is tempered with restraint. You rarely waste energies on unproductive activities. You are a physical person, but you know how to control and use of your physical energies. This aspect produces the capacity for hard work, enduring strength, and resourcefulness. Often this conjunction marks a tendency toward anger or hard feelings that you must control, if you can. You must avoid the negative attitudes and resentments that sometimes develop.

***Mentality & communication***

You have a mind that thrives on problems, and the ability to calculate all situations in a very clever and careful way. It is also possible that you have a flair for numbers. Being practical and efficient, much of your thought will be given to progress and the attainment of objectives. Look out for a tendency to underestimate your own and others' achievements, though. You don't like to be pushed to render decisions until you are ready because you want to avoid making mistakes. Your serious way of thinking can make you appear a little dry and boring. Taking yourself too seriously can also cause problems for you now and then.

***Love, marriage & social relations***

You carefully examine traits of character and qualities of behaviour before you express your feelings toward anyone, and for that reason you can appear rather cool. When you have made your choice, you are tremendously loyal, and will work hard to provide everything your partner needs. Because of your rather serious approach to love, it is very possible that you are attracted to people older than yourself, or to someone you feel is mature. In social contacts you tend to be formal, at least initially. A sense of pride will make you like to show off your loved one in an impressive way.
A positive Venus/Mars aspect shows that you are especially warm, affectionate, and congenial. You have a happy disposition and look for the better qualities in the people with whom you relate. You get along well with others because you don't make undue demands and your willingness to compromise often brings the concessions you want. Public relations is a good field for you to seek employment. With your congenial disposition, you can handle the most inflexible individual you might meet in carrying out your duties. A fun-loving person at heart, you enjoy a good time. You may run into problems with romantic partners who will assume by your nature that your sexual attitudes are promiscuous. This is probably not so. This placement often provides talent in music, art, or drama. It gives the will and energy to bring such talent to expression.

A positive aspect between Venus and Saturn shows that you have good judgment about people, and you know who to turn to when you need help. Because of this understanding, you refrain from projecting yourself toward others unless you are sure of being welcomed. In a romantic sense you are very cautious. You evaluate the object of your affections in a reserved manner, assessing the adjustments you must make in the relationship. You are so self-sufficient that your emotions are always controlled (in some individuals this aspect creates the appearance of being cold). Good, sound business judgment is shown by this placement.

***Career & ambition***

Libra influencing the tenth house suggests entering a business or a profession with a partner, or some type of project in cooperation with others. You present yourself professionally in a poised and balanced way, with much charm and diplomacy. You insist that your affairs remain neat and well run. You have the capacity to be an excellent administrator, and the decisions you make are carefully weighed and considered. Your public standing may rise well above that attained by your parentage. In the public arena, a beautiful and more balanced part of your nature emerges.

***Other traits***

You have considerable ambition, and your need for challenge is strong. This will most probably be directed towards the career or improvement in lifestyle. You know how to be methodical, and your ability to calculate every move will be an asset, enabling you to achieve your objectives. You also know your own abilities and limitations, so you never lose control of you affairs. Your outlook is somewhat serious, but an off-beat sense of humour helps to soften your sometimes pessimistic views.

You don't lack emotional intensity, but it may well be difficult for you to express your feelings. A tendency not to discuss problems is likely. But you are determined, ambitious and have the will to succeed. These resources need positive expression, perhaps through the acceptance of challenge. These traits must be recognized, or stagnation and discontent will dog your progress and attitude to life. A preoccupation with the unknown - generally or in the form of introspection - is also a possibility.

The conjunction of Jupiter with Neptune shows creative imagination. You may be very artistic, and somewhat excessive in the expression of your talents. Often this aspect shows much idealism, and you may be drawn to a religious or humanitarian life. You may be an escapist, too.

A positive aspect between Jupiter and Pluto produces a powerful exuberance in your nature that allows you to inspire others to their potential, as you likewise are able to achieve your own. You have wonderful organizational skills that can be useful, especially in business, education, and public welfare.
