Sun in Taurus, Moon in Capricorn

You were born with the Sun in Taurus and the Moon in Capricorn. Because both signs are of the earthly element, you are very practical, a good planner, and clear about your purposes. Internally, you are given to self-evaluation and judgment. You are extremely ambitious and have a secret desire for a prominent position in either politics or finance. Money interests you very much, and you tend to be extremely careful in financial matters.

Deep within yourself you are warm-hearted, kind, and amorous. Others find you somewhat unapproachable because of your cool, indifferent exterior.

You must often show a selfish and calculating face to the world, because you fear you will become vulnerable by displaying kindness and warmth. If you allow your calculating, totally objective and detached self a position of dominance, you could be a very cold person.

The key to a more harmonious self is to temper your Moon tendencies with the more humane and sympathetic Sun influence of Taurus.

Ascendant in Gemini, Mercury in the First House

At the time of your birth the zodiacal sign of Gemini was ascending in the horizon. Its ruler Mercury is located in the first house.

Your ascending sign and the position of its ruler offers general information concerning the overall trends of the course of life and complements the data pertaining to your temperament, given previously by the analysis of the combined positions of the Sun and Moon.

Gemini is the third sign of the zodiac and among its key psychological influences over life there are the following: intellectual activities, humanism, and abhorrence of violence, constant doubt of all mental concepts, hesitancy and academic interest.

People whose ascending sign is Gemini usually appear as elegant, slender, expressive, and with very humane facial expressions. They are individuals with some literary inclination, dexterous with manual labors and crafts, apt, able, witty, inventive and very curious and subtle.

A Gemini in the ascendant will always distinguish himself by his rather eloquent speech and writing, his much occupied daily life, and his perpetual lack of an ability to effect swift and determined decisions. As a Gemini, you should try to compensate your hesitancy with fast thinking.

Your disposition to life-events will be kind and generous (within bounds) but not always fortunate, because of too much vacillation in decision-making circumstances. You possess the capability of rising in life because of your own intellectual assets.

Your mind is open and generous, and your intellect self-sufficient; yet on many occasions, judgment will appear as "twisted". You should restrain useless discussion, strife, and unprofitable argument as they're your worst enemies.

To achieve success, you should stress your literary and scientific studies, give free hand to your brilliant intellect in warranted circumstances, and apply your diligent nature to writing, traveling, communications, and human analysis. In all these activities you are at your best.

You seem to be definitely signified with a restless and changeable spirit prone to perpetual concern and questioning.

Communication, writing, speech, make for a hectic life and may result in making you a nervous and hurried person, incapable of tranquillity.

Mercury Conjunct Ascendant

Mercury conjunct the Ascendant shows that you are intensely preoccupied with yourself. You probably start your conversation with I more often than most people do.

Your mental faculties are well-developed, and for the most part you are bright and witty, so your incessant use of personal pronouns may be tolerated. You are mentally impulsive and rarely give anyone the chance to answer your questions. You are not afraid to speak up when you know you are right, but the fact is, you are not always right. When your views are criticized, you become indignant and argumentative.

Moon in the Ninth House

The Moon was found in the ninth house at the time of birth. Your higher mind has the potential to expertly reflect the teachings of elevated knowledge that you may receive throughout your life. You will have an ability to quickly adjust to varying conditions.

You are endowed with a clever and resourceful imagination, and a mind which is receptive to ideals, higher thoughts, and perhaps even metaphysical matters.

Throughout life you are going to solve many critical situations by your ingenious and highly inventive mind which has an abundance of new and humane plans and ideas.

to top

Saturn in the Eleventh House

Saturn was found in the eleventh house at the time of birth. Psychologically, this denotes a rather hidden and limited view of your personal ambitions, your friendships, and of your future. You're very ambitious, cautious, just, patient, responsible, but perhaps, too serious.

You're an individual with few friends and even there you may find that some of them will assist you with advice rather than with actual help in times of peril.

Sun in the Twelfth House

The Sun was in your twelfth house at the time of birth. This may indicate a life full of limitations, obstacles, and human opposition, but at the same time a lot of inner strength and energy.

You are urged to pause and reflect upon your own accumulated history. Take some time for introspection. It may result in a purification process accompanied by some remorse of conscience.

Internally, you are quite different from the way you present yourself externally. You possess a vast reservoir of energy that may be partially hidden even from your own awareness.

Your internal disposition is strong, commanding, open, and of a rare generosity. More and more you should try to bring these characteristics into the open so that they can overcome some of the less desirable aspects of your personality.

Venus in the Twelfth House

Venus was in the twelfth house at the time of birth.

Only those very close to you have a hint of the little known facets of your personality. Regardless of the way you speak and express yourself, when you are alone, relaxed, and free of worry, you can have a sociable and congenial temperament that runs alongside a generous, kind, and attractive character.

This astrological combination may lead you into clandestine love affairs. Unless you use a great amount of tact and diplomacy, these secret affairs may create social complications that force premature termination.
