|Life Path Sample Report|
Michael J. Fox
Most people are familiar with their Sun sign based on the month and day of birth. The Sun sign answers the question, "What's your sign?" It is the reference point that is employed when we read newspaper and magazine horoscopes. But what about the nine other heavenly bodies that make their influence felt in our lives? These planets were also in a particular sign of the zodiac when you were born. Here is where Astrology really begins to come alive for each individual. This report will take you on a revealing journey as you travel through each interpretation based on your unique month, day, and year of birth. If your birth time was included, then the Rising sign will add yet another dimension to your personal horoscope interpretation. If it is not included because you don't have an accurate time of birth, there is still much useful and insightful personal information that can be gleaned from your report.

Your birth chart interpretation is based on the positions of the planets at the time of your birth. For the benefit of students of astrology, these positions, along with other technical information, are listed below:
Positions of Planets at Birth:

Aspects and orbs:
Chapter 1: The Ascendant
The precise time on the day of your birth determines your particular Ascendant, also known as your Rising Sign. This was the zodiac sign that was rising over the horizon when you were born. In addition to your Sun and Moon Sign, the Rising Sign reveals very important traits that make up a major part of your personality and your individual approach to life. This is usually the impression you like to make before you really get to know someone; it is your outer personality and image.
There is a distinct part of your outer personality that expresses itself very much like an Aquarius. You are friendly, somewhat unpredictable and you have the ability to maintain a sense of individuality even within the structure of a large group.
Sun in soft aspect to Asc.:
It's easy for you to shine in social situations and you radiate self-confidence, whether you know it or not. You can lead others and they will gladly follow. This is an excellent aspect for getting what you want out of life.
Mars Conjunct or in hard aspect to Asc.:
You meet challenges head on and others may see you as a "hard driver." Your personality projects a strong spirit and a lot of spunk.
Uranus Conjunct or in hard aspect to Asc.:
You're anything but a stick-in-the-mud. You march to the beat of a different drummer and you're something of a rebel. You crave excitement and when life gets too predictable (i.e., boring) you know how to stir things up again.
Chapter 2: The Sun
The placement of the Sun in your chart will show you how (the sign) and in which area of life (the house) tremendous potential exists for you. Here is where you want to be successful. The Sun cannot be ignored. We must meet and deal with the area of life that the Sun shines on in our chart in order find ultimate fulfillment. Everything revolves around the Sun. When you master whatever issues the Sun points to, then other areas of life will proceed in a more balanced and satisfactory manner. The Sun also represents: your own will, major goals, the father, men in your life, children, creativity, and the real inner you.
Sun in Gemini:
Clever, social, and communicative, your general approach to life is light hearted. You can be somewhat hard to pin down because you have a wonderful natural curiosity about life. You prefer to know at least a little bit about everything. The restless nature of Gemini is quite conducive to your preference for a wide variety of experiences and mental pursuits. Geminis often won't take a particular subject into great depth, but for you, just having a taste of the smorgasbord that life offers is enough to satisfy.
Sun in 4th house:
Personal fulfillment is reinforced by establishing a secure foundation for yourself, whether emotionally or even materially.
Mars in soft aspect to Sun:
Here is the opportunity to draw on willpower backed by action when the need arises. Vitality and physical energy are promoted in a positive manner and your endurance is high when you're motivated. You know how to compete for your own survival, but you generally don't go out of your way to challenge others unless you feel it's really necessary.
Chapter 3: The Moon
The Moon in your chart represents the past and points to an area of life (the house) where we function out of instinctive awareness. Often we have a deep emotional need to do the things that the Moon's house placement represents. Whenever insecurities arise and our feelings become involved, we tend to bring the traits (the sign) of our Moon into play. The Moon is like our security blanket. It also represents: the home, females in your life, the mother, nurturing others or being nurtured ourselves, as well as things related to the domestic scene in general.
Moon in Taurus:
You are stable, loyal, and basically easy to get along with. Your emotions run very deep on matters you deem worthy. You are usually slow to anger, but let others beware, because when you've had enough, you can really blow off some steam!
Moon in 2nd house:
You can expect some fluctuating circumstances surrounding money. You need to feel secure about what you have and you have an emotional need for financial success.
Venus Conjunct or in hard aspect to Moon:
Other people find you to be a soft touch. There is a gullible side to you that will toughen up as you mature.
Saturn Conjunct or in hard aspect to Moon:
Try not to be so hard on yourself. You're a whole lot better than you think you are. When you recognize your worth, you can accomplish your goals whatever they may be.
Pluto in soft aspect to Moon:
When you allow yourself to become emotionally upset, it's difficult for you to imagine that life will ever get better while the episode is in progress. You feel everything with every fiber of your being and crisis leaves you feeling completely drained. However, you will eventually stabilize and go on with life. Every time you're forced to emotionally regenerate yourself, you emerge more evolved at the deepest level of your being whether you are aware of it or not.
Chapter 4: Mercury
Mercury is the planet of communication. It tells us about how we think and talk. You can gain insight into your mode of gathering, processing and transmitting information from Mercury's placement in your chart. Mercury also represents: transportation, the five senses, youth, reading, and writing.
Mercury in Cancer:
Intuitive, expressive and somewhat changeable in nature, you have an active and creative imagination that can be put to very positive use if you choose. Try not to use it to create imaginary slights from others that will only cause you unnecessary disappointment.
Mercury in 5th house:
You may enjoy literary and other intellectual pursuits as a form of recreation. Games and hobbies that stimulate the mind are favored.
Neptune in soft aspect to Mercury:
This endows you with the ability to use your faculties of imagination along artistic or musical lines. You can easily tune out reality from time to time and you often prefer to live in your own idealistic world. You are often more in sync with the dreamy, mystical side of life than with the mundane affairs of everyday duties and responsibilities. It is easier for you than most other people to cross the line between reality and imagination.
Pluto in soft aspect to Mercury:
You can drastically alter your life utilizing the power of thought and words. Therefore, it is advisable to watch what you say and to banish negative thinking. Spoken and written affirmations carry extra weight with this aspect, so make them positive and life affirming.
Chapter 5: Venus
Venus is the planet of relating to others, and thus is associated with love, attraction and socializing. In a male's chart, Venus can provide clues about traits he finds attractive in females. In a female's chart, it reveals something about how she relates to males. Venus is also the planet of material goodies and sensual delights in all of their various forms. Venus also represents: money, harmonious conditions, pleasurable activities, beauty, and the arts.
Venus in Taurus:
Affectionate and devoted, you generally make a cooperative and loyal partner. In relationships, whether with a lover or a good friend, Venus in Taurus can make you overly attached to a situation that in truth it would be better to leave. Usually this is due to avoidance of change, and change is something that Taurus doesn't feel especially comfortable with. The same qualities that make you devoted and loyal can turn into jealousy and possessiveness if not checked.
Venus in 2nd house:
Financial security and enjoyment of the good things in life are important to you. You can be a lavish spender because money matters tend to work themselves out in your favor in the end.
Jupiter Conjunct or in hard aspect to Venus:
You can be fairly extravagant with your finances. The word excessive often describes your attitude toward matters of love and money. You are attracted to the finer things in life, and you don't mind indulging yourself.
Saturn Conjunct or in hard aspect to Venus:
You take relationships seriously and you may have had your share of disappointments by bonding with those who don't display the same level of commitment. Because of this, you might become pessimistic and overly cautious which can then create self fulfilling prophecies. Associations may then be sought out for reasons of self preservation and status in an attempt to avoid emotional injury.
Pluto in soft aspect to Venus:
You will experience at least one intense relationship that will have a transforming effect on your approach to matters of the heart.
Chapter 6: Mars
Mars is our planet of action, energy output, motivation, and instinctive biological drives. It shows how and in which area of life you are willing to put forth a lot of effort. Mars' energy is quick, impulsive, and survival oriented. In a male's chart, Mars reveals something about how he relates to females. In a female's chart, Mars can provide clues about the traits she finds attractive in males. Mars also represents: competitive situations, conflicts, accidents, and sexual energies.
Mars in Leo:
You are passionate, have a naturally magnetic sex appeal and you possess a strong self will. You are courageous, fearless and brave, especially during times of crisis. You don't like to lose, and this trait makes you an extremely stubborn opponent when challenged. Action and vitality combine to create the ability to finish what you start, or negatively, to make you likely to be someone who doesn't know when it's time to quit.
Mars in 6th house:
Are you a bit of a workaholic? Perhaps. You feel that your survival depends on the level of work that you're able to accomplish. Mars here could also be saying that the work you do requires a higher than usual energy level.
Uranus Conjunct or in hard aspect to Mars:
You don't usually like to take advice and you can't stand to have your freedom imposed upon. You're something of a rebel at heart and you crave adventure and new experiences. Your temper can be explosive.
Chapter 7: Jupiter
Jupiter is the planet of expansion and taking things beyond normal limits. It shows us where the universe allows us to indulge ourselves, and often we find that wherever it is in the chart is where things work out in our favor eventually. Some call this luck. Jupiter also represents: faith, ideas about God, abstract thinking, high ideals, and abundance.
Jupiter in Aquarius:
You are self-sufficient, unconventional and cause oriented. You are tolerant of the many variations in humankind in general; however, once you form your own opinion about a particular subject you are hard pressed to change it. You will benefit by working cooperatively with groups of people devoted to a common cause.
Jupiter in 12th house:
Whether you are aware of it or not, you have a kind of spiritual protection hovering around you. It's difficult for other people to succeed in undermining your goals. Eventually you will triumph.
Neptune Conjunct or in hard aspect to Jupiter:
Sentimental and idealistic, you often find the reality of day to day struggles difficult to bear. The best way to use this aspect is to stay tuned into universal forces that promote faith and acknowledgment of a higher power in your life. You have the ability to move beyond simple faith into the realm of true enlightenment. This a lifetime in which the stars lend encouragement where spiritual pursuits are concerned. Take some classes in meditation and learn some techniques for grounding yourself on a daily basis.
Jupiter is Retrograde
Your abundance is felt on the inside. You can feel satisfied with less than other people, which can be quite admirable in a way. The result is, it's easy for you to settle for crumbs when you'd really like more out of life. Take an honest inner inventory of what you believe you deserve, because that's what you'll get. Affirm to yourself that you can have what you want because you're worth it.
Chapter 8: Saturn
Saturn is our planet of restriction and discipline. It shows us where we may feel inadequate in some way, and thus we take this area of life very seriously because we want to perfect ourselves. Saturn also represents: life lessons to be learned, trials and tests, a strong sense of duty, and bringing ideas into material form.
Saturn in Capricorn:
You can be an extremely hard worker, and you'll overcome obstacles that other less dedicated souls would have given up on a long time ago. This is an excellent placement for successful achievement of goals. However, you will have to draw on your own ability to discipline yourself and persevere through difficult times.
Saturn in 12th house:
This is a lifetime that will be greatly enriched by helping your fellow man altruistically. Make some time to add a little hope to someone else's life. You can empathize with others' feelings of hopelessness and despair because you have either experienced these emotions yourself or you have subconscious memories from past lives to draw on.
Saturn is Retrograde
No one can give you a hard time like you can give yourself. You rarely feel satisfied with your own efforts. Constantly nagging inner voices of self criticism and unrealistic ideas of perfection can censor spontaneous creativity and squelch action before you even get started. You'll have to practice self trust. "Let go and let God" is a good mantra for you to mentally recite until your subconscious gets the message. Here's another: I will do my best and forget the rest. I will do my best and forget the rest. I will do my best and....
Chapter 9: Uranus
Uranus is a planet of unexpected change and unpredictable events. It tells us something about where we have unusual ideas and how we want to express our own unique individuality. Uranus also represents: rebelliousness, sudden awakenings, invention, progress, genius, anything "New Age," and humanitarian efforts.
Uranus in Leo:
Uranus was in the sign of Leo for approximately seven years. This means that you are part of a large group of people who will share many of the same fundamental characteristics such as the ability to be highly creative and even flamboyant. Unusual approaches to child rearing and a rebellious attitude toward rules and regulations are keynotes here.
Uranus in 7th house:
You can be a genius when it comes to partnerships. You have to be because you tend to attract partners who are quite independent, perhaps even a bit rebellious.
Chapter 10: Neptune
Neptune is a planet that dissolves hard and fast boundaries. It is where we don't always see things as they really are, mostly because we would rather view the world through rose-colored glasses.
Neptune in Scorpio:
Because Neptune stays in the same sign about fourteen years, there are many other people who will experience the same things that this placement brings to varying degrees. Some of these include: a breakdown in sexual boundaries, positive spiritual transformation or extreme confusion along those lines, and a high level of deeply perceptive insights about yourself or others.
Neptune in 8th house:
At the very least, you have excellent powers of intuition that can border on being genuinely psychic. Don't be surprised if at some point in your life you experience clairvoyant dreams or visions. The things that you visualize can change your life.
Pluto in soft aspect to Neptune:
Bigotry and narrow thinking are huge turn offs for you. You lean toward a humanitarian outlook and you see the big picture, whether it applies to you or society as a whole. Mysticism, magic and the occult attract your interest and you can choose to use any knowledge gained to produce positive results.
Neptune is Retrograde
Ever heard the term "suffer in silence?" Does it apply to you? Ask yourself why you find it so difficult to share your real pain with others. Someone made you feel guilty a long time ago and now a part of you lives as though you're trying to make up for whatever the original so-called transgression was. You want to heal the whole world. Start with forgiving yourself in no uncertain terms. Unload other people's shabby misconceptions which have been foisted upon you and find the tranquility you deserve.
Chapter 11: Pluto
Pluto is a planet that brings with it transformation. Something about the area of life that it points to will undergo a complete change. Significant lifestyle changes can happen whenever Pluto is involved. Deep, complex issues will be brought to light eventually. It is where conditions can swing from one extreme to the other. It's all or nothing.
Pluto in Virgo:
Pluto is the slowest moving planet, and thus is recognized as exerting a generational influence as it moves through each zodiac sign.
Pluto in 7th house:
You'll learn all about the art of cooperation with other people with this Pluto placement. One-on-one relationships, whether friends, marriage, or business partners, will affect your life in a profound manner.
Chapter 12: Elements, the North Node, and the Midheaven
In this section of the report we interpret the following astrological influences: the Moon's North Node, the MC (the 10th house cusp or Midheaven) and also a preponderance of an astrological element. A "preponderance" occurs when 4 or more planets or the Ascendant is in that element: fire, earth, air, or water. Many people do not have a heavy emphasis of a particular element so not everyone will have an interpretation of an element emphasis.
North Node in Virgo:
Incorporating the following traits into your life will make it easier in the long run to attain goals.
North Node in 7th house:
The universe is encouraging you to play up the aforementioned traits in these areas of life.
MC Conjunct or in hard aspect to Sun:
You'll have to develop the ability to put yourself in the limelight in order to go after what you really want career-wise. Ego conflicts with those in authority can create setbacks until you learn the art of finding a middle course.
MC in soft aspect to Mars:
You're well equipped to handle the competitive situations that arise in the workplace and your willingness to work tirelessly on projects wins favor with the boss. You don't go out of your way to be pushy with authority figures, but you do see them as equals and you're not shy about voicing your opinions. You're excellent at getting things going and you have plenty of innovative ideas to contribute.
Four or more Earth Signs
Stable and grounded, you will learn all about how to bring what you dream about into practical reality. Manifestation is the key here. Develop a habit of finishing whatever you start. Enjoy and appreciate the bounty that the earth offers.
Chapter 13: House Rulerships
This chapter deals with an Astrological technique known as House Rulers. The "houses" of the horoscope deal primarily with your earth plane experiences. As such, the tone of these interpretations may appear to be more "predictive" in nature. Not all statements will apply absolutely to your experience.
