The following is my personal horoscope (with explanations) charted according to the time,date and place of my birth. Some of the information below was provided by my friend Kathy Capozzoli (KC) in Las Vegas USA to whom I owe many thanks. Whilst I do not agree with it all, it does make interesting reading for those who wish for a little more insight into how I 'tick'.


How I Appear To Others


The rising sign, especially its degree, is the most personal point in your birth chart and represents subjective reactions to life as well as what you need to thrive both in terms of environment and health. Often it is the face you present to the world for everyone to see, and it says a lot about how you relate to others as well as to yourself.


Ascendant in Leo

Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, you like to be impressive and to be seen as Somebody Special. You are not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and are rarely content being in the background or in the subordinate position. You are a natural leader, and do not take orders from others very well. You must have something of your own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that you can develop and manage according to your own will and vision. Whatever you do, you do it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. You like to put your own personal stamp on it.

You also have a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honour and are deeply offended if someone treats you in a humiliating or dishonourable way. You will rarely confront the offender - you are too proud to do so - but you will lose your affection and respect for them. You dislike pettiness and hate to be snubbed or ignored.

You admire others who are strong individuals like yourself. When you befriend someone, you are tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. You are very giving and generous, but your gifts are never anonymous - you expect recognition and appreciation for them. You also expect the intense loyalty that you offer to your dear ones to be reciprocated. However, you often have trouble working with people who are as strong as yourself, for you do not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If you are not in the leading role, you aspire to be and will compete with the person who is.

You have great heart and courage, and people often look to you for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. You always have your best face forward and rarely allow others to see you hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. You also have a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although you don't like others to realize just how important it is to you.

Your outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centred. Your own self-expression, self-actualisation and self-realization interests you more than anything else. You feel that if you do your best where you are, the rest of the world will take care of itself.

The essence of how I am


The Sun corresponds to your identity, your essential nature with which you may or may not identify. It represents what you grow into over time as you become more aware of who you are. Your destiny in life is tied to the Sun as is your sense of true fulfilment. Success that is meaningful shows itself here.


Sun in Leo

Proud and intensely individual, you really want to stand out, to be the very best you can be, and to be recognized and appreciated for your unique contributions. Doing something well and being respected for it is extremely important to you, and you cannot tolerate being in the background, taking orders from others, or being "just one of the team". You must put your personal stamp on whatever you do, and direct your own course in life. You need to have a place where you can shine, express yourself creatively, and be the one in charge.

You have big dreams and the determination, spirit, vitality, and enthusiasm to bring them into being. You also have a noble, romantic heart, and a love of the dramatic, colourful, and extravagant.

For you it is true that "all the world's a stage" and you secretly (or perhaps not so secretly) desire to be the Star or Hero in the play. You want to be great, and to receive the love and applause of an adoring audience, even if the "audience" is just one other special person. You need someone to believe in you and your dreams. Though you appear radiantly self-confident and independent, you are actually very much dependent on the affirmation, love, and recognition of others. You cannot bear being unnoticed or unappreciated.

You also love wholeheartedly and generously and really know how to make the person you love feel special. You love the magic of "being in love" and know how to keep the romance alive in your relationships. You are also immensely loyal and will defend your loved ones and stand by them to the end - as long as they never offend your pride or betray your trust. However, you like to be the strong one in a relationship and you really do not share the leading role very easily. Ideally you need to find a person who is as strong-willed as yourself, but who will not try to dominate or compete with you.

Your strengths are your zest and love for life, your creative power, and your warm and generous heart. Your primary fault is your tendency to be very egocentric, so concerned with the impression you are making and with your own creative self- expression that you forget there is another, larger world that does not revolve around you.

Sun in 1st House

You have a clear sense of yourself and therefore convey a strong impression to others of who you are and what you want. Assertive and self-motivated, you can be a leader - one whom others look to for direction - but you compete and often clash with other strong individuals. You feel a need to be in control of your own life and you can be too self-involved, too immersed in your own interests, and oblivious to others at times.

Sun Conjunction Pluto

Inwardly you are zealous and fanatical, though you may hide your personal desires and intentions, and the intensity of your feelings. You are driven by a deep inner sense of destiny and mission and an almost compulsive desire for personal recognition. You have an infatuation with power and are incredibly wilful and stubbornly fixated on achieving greatness or being Somebody Special. You tend to worship heroes who have powerful personal magnetism and charisma, and often seek to emulate them. You have potential to create greatness and/or to destroy it.

Sun Conjunction Saturn

You have a mature and often sombre demeanour. You are serious, reserved, self-disciplined, highly responsible and conscientious. You advance in life rather slowly, through your own efforts and persistence. You are also rather stern and judgemental, especially with yourself. Cautious and careful, it is difficult for you to really let go, to be spontaneous and playful. You like to be in control of yourself.

My emotions and feelings


The Moon shows how you are supported and how you support others. Much of what is conditioned in your life is represented by the Moon which is why it symbolizes early life, especially family, your mother, and other important influences that have shaped you. It is about habits that you have come to accept and often don't think about. The Moon governs your reactions, particularly based on feelings.


Moon in Pisces

Tenderhearted and sympathetic to an unusual degree, you have an understanding of other people's feelings and needs which borders on being telepathic. You are extremely compassionate and cannot bear to see any fellow creature - be it human or animal - suffer. Because of your kindness and non judgmental attitude, people in pain or confusion are drawn to you for help, which you readily give. Sometimes your softheartedness is taken advantage of.

You are a gentle, poetic soul and have a great love and affinity for music. Because many of your feelings are nebulous and vague and you cannot easily verbalize how you experience life, music seems a natural language for you. You are also tremendously romantic and are often "in love with love".

Moon in 8th House

Though you want closeness very much, you often close yourself off and do not really trust others who may wish to get to know you. You are very wholehearted in your feelings and responses to people, and you want all or nothing from the people you care for.

Moon Trine Jupiter

You are easygoing, agreeable, and tolerant, willing to overlook others' mistakes, forget the past, and begin again on a positive note. You enjoy making others comfortable and happy, and sometimes overdo your generosity. You often feel that "everything will turn out all right no matter what I do", and so become lazy and lackadaisical.

How I think and communicate


Mercury moves easily from idea to idea and has always represented the mental process including how and what you communicate whether by phone, letter, fax, email, spoken or unspoken. Mercury connects and puts things together, and it shows what kind of thinker you are and how you learn. It also is about movement and how quickly you respond to the information you receive.


Mercury in Cancer

You are highly interested in inner, subjective, and personal issues, and your thinking is based more on feelings, intuition, personal experiences, and prejudices rather than reason or logic. Intellectual abilities and accomplishments without heart or soul mean little to you. You are empathic and would be an excellent counsellor, for you are a sensitive listener and deeply interested in a person's feelings and inner life. In addition to psychology, you are drawn to education, art, poetry, music, or mythology. You are not especially confident about speaking in public, but will open up and share your thoughts in small, intimate groups. You enjoy keeping a diary or personal journal and reading the chronicles of others' lives and personal development.

Mercury in 12th House

You don't speak up readily, even when you have a lot to say! Also, your mind tends to drift and you find it difficult to study very factual material that doesn't have much colour or imaginative appeal. Your intuition and first impressions are likely to be quite accurate, however, and you tend to depend upon this faculty in making decisions.

Love and romance


Venus rules your values and how you evaluate whatever is around you. When you appraise or appreciate something, whether another person or a new car, this is Venus. It represents your capacity to love as well as who or what attracts you. Venus shows your ability to have a good time and how you enjoy yourself. When you go shopping or are on a spending spree, it is Venus that allows you to take pleasure in the good things of life.


Venus in Leo

Warmhearted and generous in love, you cannot tolerate pettiness or stinginess in your partner. You want a Hero, a Prince or Princess to idolize and adore, someone you wholeheartedly admire and can be proud of. You are tremendously loyal and devoted once you give your heart to someone.

You crave love, appreciation, and attention from others and hate to be ignored. You are rather susceptible to flattery and love to feel SPECIAL. You enjoy some drama and colour in your love life and grand romantic gestures or an extravagant expression of generosity impresses you.

Venus in 12th House

You often hide your affection, or find your feelings difficult to express or get across to the person you love. Being openly affectionate and trusting often doesn't seem safe to you. You may feel your love won't be appreciated or reciprocated. You may get involved in secret love affairs or fall in love with a person who is quite unavailable to you. Love and sacrifice often seem to go hand in hand for you - having to give something up to be with the one you love, or having to relinquish some person or some aspect of an important love relationship.

My Drive and Motivations


Mars is about your motivation and drive which are essential to any accomplishment. It shows the quality of your energy and how you express it. Mars is the force that keeps you going and provides the courage to take a risk. It is also causes conflicts and sends you into battle with others and with yourself. It represents your ability to act on impulse and to follow your desires.


Mars in Gemini

You are a "busy bee" - energetic, restless, and forever on the go. Your active mind is always buzzing with ideas and you find it difficult sometimes to relax, slow down, or take time to reflect and replenish yourself. You tend to live on nervous energy. You can accomplish much in short bursts but projects that require long-term commitment, stamina, and steady, persistent effort are not easy for you. You often scatter your energies into so many directions and activities at once that you cannot finish or follow through on some of them. You need variety, change, and mental challenges.

You have a sharp and eager mind, and you enjoy games and competitions that have a mental component. You like to match wits with someone else.

You often achieve your desires by your verbal skill, your ability to speak clearly, vigorously, and convincingly for what you want. Your drive and energy is more mental than physical. You use your wit, intelligence, communication skills, social sophistication, and awareness to achieve your goals.

Mars in 11th House

You are a team player and work well in collaboration with others who share your goals, ideals, and intentions. You can coordinate group efforts and inspire people to work toward a shared goal. Team sports are also a lot of fun for you, and you could be a leader, coach, or director of any group endeavour.

Mars Conjunction Uranus

Dynamic, self-willed, and fiercely independent, you have extraordinary drive and energy. When you want something, you want it NOW, and you act quickly, impulsively, and decisively. Your impatience inclines you to be abrupt with people and reckless. You need a great deal of personal freedom to do things in your own way and do not happily conform to schedules, rules, or regimes imposed by others. You are intolerant of authority and can be very rebellious. You are very frank with others, sometimes brutally so. You may have an explosive temper. High-strung and often nervous and tense, you find it difficult to slow down, pace yourself, or relax. You are always on the go. You are restless, daring, and experimental.

How I expand and grow


Jupiter is the planet of abundance and shows where it is easy for you to expand and grow. It is considered a beneficial influence that can bring improvement and success. Jupiter shows the degree of your confidence and trust and is an indicator for the type of belief system that you have. It can also represent excess as too much of anything can become overdone. Jupiter governs travel to distant places and the explorations of the farther reaches of thought and study. It signifies your generosity and the type of opportunities available.


Jupiter in Scorpio

Your strength lies in your unwillingness to settle for superficiality or shallowness in any area of your life. You are unafraid of going to extremes and experiencing the depths. The mysterious and the unknown are very attractive to you. Your intuitive understanding of others' inner drives and motivations is highly developed also.

Jupiter in 4th House

You are very hospitable and love having a large, comfortable, gracious home where you can welcome guests as well as family. Your childhood or heritage was very nourishing and supportive, giving you a solid, emotionally secure basis for your life, and you are therefore inclined to share what you have freely and generously. Investing in your home or real estate is likely to be very rewarding for you.

Moon Trine Jupiter

Faith in life and basic, conservative instincts gives you position and prominence in your social circle. Others support you publicly and you are an inspiration to them. The public generally holds certain values as obvious truths. You subtly and instinctively reinforce the values and basic beliefs that power the decisions in most people's lives. Thus, you create a feeling in others that you are "one of us". You make the right choices. Your character seems trustworthy to others and you seldom disappoint them.

How I am tested


Saturn is the great teacher that keeps you focused on the task at hand and on what is important. At times, life is difficult and wherever you experience restriction, you will find Saturn. It rules the laws and limitations of this material world we all live in. Although it always seeks to regulate any thought, word, or action, it also defines and clarifies. While many see Saturn as a negative influence, it simply shows where you are deficient, at least early in life. Over time, which Saturn governs, a deficiency can become a strength as you pass the necessary tests which bring you a greater sense of accomplishment and security. Saturn shows how you structure and organize as well as how you handle responsibility. It signifies what you take seriously and where life is likely to get your attention.


Saturn in Leo

You are very self-conscious and have a great need for ego- affirmation and praise. Expressing yourself freely, openly, and unself-consciously is not easy for you. You tend to work hard at playing and "having fun", rather than being light-hearted and spontaneous. Developing self-love and self-acceptance regardless of your "performance" is an important task for you.

Saturn in 1st House

You have a mature, disciplined, serious attitude toward life which colours everything you do. Caution and realism are your virtues though you limit yourself at times by being too careful, shy, or fearful, and not believing in yourself enough or being assertive when necessary. Others find you difficult to get to know intimately, as you tend to distance yourself from them or to put forth a rather stern, "adult" face to the world.

Saturn Conjunction Pluto

You are suspicious of groups, crowds, and social organizations. You are quick to notice social games and insincerities, and you avoid the limelight and glamour. You are direct and to the point in speech and manner, stubborn and inflexible, and often unwilling to communicate your innermost feelings and thoughts.

Sun Conjunction Saturn

You experience life as a serious affair. You struggle for what comes to you, but good things in life do come to you. You are hard-working, disciplined, and patient. You need to guard against being overly suspicious of others and learn to be more charitable towards yourself and the world. You can suffer from painting an overly gloomy picture of life and your situation. This can lead to depression. You are capable of and should practice being responsible without being cynical. You can be self-reliant without being callous.

How I am different


Life would be boring if everyone was the same, and Uranus is a planet that thrives on being different. It shows how you rebel and how you are unique, even eccentric, which simply means outside the centre or the mainstream. Uranus is about going against the grain or whatever is commonplace. It is your capacity to be a minority. It governs everything that is unusual and out of the ordinary and is the planet that brings sudden insight that can change your direction in an instant.


Uranus in Gemini

You are part of a 7 year group of people who are progressive and creative thinkers. Academic achievement is high and academic standards are higher with your age group than with others. You are a curious and inquisitive bunch, and many discoveries and clever insights are brought forth from your age group. The love of learning never dies with your age group, and your curiosity and inquisitiveness does not wane in later life, as is common with others.

Uranus in 11th House

You have unusual, even eccentric friends, and you are likely to join groups, communities, organizations, or clubs which promote progressive or unconventional ideas, social change, or innovation in some form. You are dynamic and creative in business affairs and in organizations.

Mars Conjunction Uranus

You truly "march to a different drummer". You have some difficulty hooking up with others emotionally because of your detachment and quirky forms of expressing your feelings. You are a humanist but not particularly personal. Your brand of romance is aimed more toward ideals than to people for their own sake. You have a strong will and are capable of putting an unbelievable amount of energy into a project. Your enthusiasm for a person, a program, or a process can be short-lived because you don't like to be tied down. You have made freedom a religion and the urge to be free has claims in its own right on your personality. When you are committed to a course of action though, you can go harder and longer than others around you. Physical exercise is important daily to ensure emotional and physical well-being and balance.

My sensitivities and perceptions


Whenever you experience moments of unity or a sense of wholeness, it is Neptune that allows all boundaries to dissolve so that perception is without limit. Despite the ecstasy it can bring, Neptune can show where you are confused or blind to certain truths. It is about escaping the harsh realities when the pain is too much endure. Yet it also is your capacity to soften and to open to the multitude of possibilities that are present. It shows your faith and willingness to let go and flow with life rather than fight against it.


Neptune in Libra

You are part of a 14 year group of people who have a very idealistic sense of brotherhood and universal cooperation, which, among other things, fostered the peace and freedom movement. Your age group is also interested in the spiritual philosophy and ideals of other cultures, and is not at all dogmatic in its approach to religion. You incorporate the approaches of other religions. Your age group tends to have an eclectic approach to religion, utilizing elements from many religious perspectives (e.g. Eastern and Western), and finds it difficult to follow traditionally defined religious practices.

A gullibility and an unwillingness to be decisive and judgmental inclines your age group to be easily deceived, and consequently many of the well-intended ideals and goals are frustrated by a lack of clear purpose and direction.

Neptune in 3rd House

Daydreaming, lack of concentration, and inattention to your surroundings can be problems for you. Your mind tends to wander unless you are using it in an imaginative, creative way. Dry facts and cold logic hold no appeal for you, and unless a subject has a colourful or personally inspiring element, you won't stick with it for long. You have a sensitive, intuitive bent.

My Powers and Passions


Pluto is a tiny planet with immense effects. It represents how you make significant shifts in your life where the past is left behind forever. These shifts start slowly, even imperceptibly, until they are unstoppable. Pluto shows your capacity for being uncompromising and where your most compelling interests lie. It is a planet of extremes that has little patience for anything unless it is intense. Pluto signifies your deepest passions and your darkest secrets. It is about power and how you use it.


Pluto in Leo

You are part of a 20 year period that is often referred to as the "ME" generation, a generation that has a very proud and self- reliant attitude. You are a generation that is very concerned with self-development and personal integrity. Women's rights and minority rights are issues that your generation has fostered and they reflect your concern with individual respect, integrity, and honour. Your age group has a deeply felt sense that each person has an equal right and opportunity to fully develop his or her inner potential.

However, your group also finds it difficult to be part of a team and a strong egotism makes group efforts difficult; you tend to see the individual as more important than the group. You also defy authority and often feel that no one has the right to tell you what to do. The strong movement to refuse drafting into the military is one example of your age group's strong sense of individual rights and freedom.

Your age group has popularised the idea of self-development, and has contributed a great deal to the development of individual potential as well as human rights. However, there is also a tendency to be rather self-centred; others may wonder how you can spend so much time developing yourselves and have so little time to contribute to your families!

The interest in personal development also sometimes manifests as a fascination with particular individuals and a great deal of hero worship. Every generation, of course, has lots of idols, but your generation is particularly prone to needing a specific individual to represent and embody an idea or feeling, and to serve as a focal point of interest. Perhaps the most extreme example of this is the concept of the guru that was popularised by your age group.

Pluto in 1st House

You are an intense person, inclined to be wholeheartedly and passionately involved in whatever your current interest is. You easily go to extremes and you make more moderate, easy-going souls feel uncomfortable. You may have unusual charisma and also be profoundly influenced by powerful, charismatic figures whom you model yourself after. Learning to use personal power appropriately is an issue for you. Negatively, you can be manipulative and obsessed with personal aggrandizement. Positively, you can be a potent force for change, growth, and healing in the world.

Saturn Conjunction Pluto

Deep secret fears and hidden anxieties prevent your life from becoming as successful and outgoing as you would like it to be. You have a special temperament for the study of history and anthropology. A study of the past can release you from present fears. Hard work brings recognition and success.

Sun Conjunction Pluto

You have a powerful will and a dogmatic determination to get to your goal. There is a lonely quality to you that emerges from a self-imposed insulation (or isolation). Few people ever really get to know you in a very personal way. Still you find this life very productive. You keep approaching your selected goals whether it takes years, decades or even millenniums. Even you don't see how committed you are to the long-range goals until you carefully evaluate the path of decision-making in your life. There is a pioneering and self-confident aura about you that works itself out through self-reform.




Chinese Sign Profile: Pig

One thing is certain about Pigs -- they are always in the pink. Generous and honourable, they are nice to a fault and possessed of impeccable manners and taste. Some of them have so much of the perfectionist in them that others may be inclined to perceive them as snobs, which is not the case, Pigs believe in the best of mankind and certainly don't consider themselves superior. They also care a great deal about friends and family and work hard to keep everyone in their life happy. Helping others is a true pleasure for the Pig, a happy sort that feels best when everyone else is smiling.

A truly sad sight is a Pig with no one around to appreciate their giving nature. Pigs are so magnanimous they can appear almost saintly. This can lead some less than well intentioned people to stomp all over the Pig. The Pig refuses to see others as less than good, an endearing quality which makes them great companions. The happy Pig might actually scowl if someone tries to tell them that their approach is too wet. Suffice it to say Pigs aren't keen on unsolicited advice, preferring to fight their own battles when need be. If you can stay out of their way, Pigs can be the most loyal and devoted friends on Earth.

Beyond their sparkling reputations, Pigs are highly intelligent creatures. They are forever studying, playing and probing in their quest for greater knowledge. They also adore food and drink, easily making them the gluttons of the Chinese Zodiac. Nothing but champagne and caviar for the discerning Pig! These Pigs also make wonderful life partners, since they truly do have a heart of gold. Even so, they can be exceedingly exclusive, spending time with those who will appreciate them most while ignoring the rest of the populace.

Pigs need to realise that there's more to life than being needed. When they open up their world to a diverse group of people, they will truly bloom.

The most compatible match for a pig is the rabbit or goat.

Leo and other signs


Leo and Aries....These two were made in astrological heaven. They like to pamper each other and get steamy flashes of passion when together. Even their struggles-- when their strong wills go head to head-- are exciting.Leo and Taurus....Arrogant Leo will provoke Taurus to kick out with his feet and toss his horns. Leo needs his freedom to be king of the jungle and Taurus needs to be in control of his domain as well. This is an incompatible combination.

Leo and Gemini....This can be summed up in one word...challenge. Geminis are flexible enough to put up with Leo's constant bragging and they appreciate his fierce protection. This relationship works best between a female Gemini and male Leo.

Leo and Cancer....Extravagant, unrestrained Leo often will offend the cautious Cancer. Leo's claws are sharper and they will rip the Cancer's vulnerable emotions to shreds. These two can easily destroy each other.

Leo and Leo....These two will fiercely protect, pamper, and adore each other. Passion will be total bliss. Their clashes of will, however, can be lethal.

Leo and Virgo....This is a union of extremes. This could be down right cruel---Leo (lion) and a Virgo (virgin). On the other hand, this relationship could be magical as well...Leo (lion) and a Virgo (virgin). This is a relationship only for those who love adventures.

Leo and Libra....Gentle Libra will be terrified of the Leo's ferocious temper; but Libra can tame Leo with skillful art of diplomacy. Libra has those stunning good looks that Leo is seeking.

Leo and Scorpio....Tremble at the thought. The intensely cool Scorpio controls with silent, piercing stares that give the proud Leo the willies. This is one control game that Leo will never win; and Leos hate to lose.

Leo and Sagittarius....Two of a kind...energetic and optimistic...they will travel the world together and offer each other all the excitement they can handle. Sagittarius occasional bursts of honesty can sometime stab Leo's pride.

Leo and Capricorn....Leos would take joy in spending all the money that Capricorns have worked so hard to save up....but, no Capricorn would ever allow a Leo close to their stash. Leos do not believe in saving for a rainy day; Capricorns are always prepared. The differences are immense.

Leo and Aquarius....Aquarius is interested in others; Leos are interested in themselves. Aquarius thoughts are just too far out there to focus on personal appearances. Leos think about little else. A mismatch.

Leo and Pisces....This can get confusing...especially with you think that great sex equals love. Pisces doesn't mind the bossiness of Leo. On the other hand, Pisces fits of dark depression will not be well received.
