Let’s be brave!
By some crazy stretch of the imagination, I decided it might be interesting to post my first attempt at a natal chart analysis. (My own, of course, but the chart of a former celebrity crush is in the offing.) One, so you could see what I can do (and I can show my mommy, who is very supportive…*giggle*) and two, so my astrology mentors (such as they may be) can comment and offer pointers.
I only did the sun (which I refer to as Helios) and its aspects, so here we go…!
17° Capricorn ~ Sixth House ~ Peregrine
Things like health, serving others and small animals drive you, which is why you love cats, studied health and worked in retail. As with many Capricorns, organization, attention to detail, time management and obedience to rules are of primary importance to you. Should someone be foolish enough to violate those four things—especially in relation to any sixth house issue—may the gods help them, because you will not be so inclined toward mercy.
While you often feel as if Capricorn doesn’t resemble the true you, you have a correctly-placed sense of Helios being the luminary of the Dayanara that lives deep inside. Your outgoing, enthusiastic and talkative nature may be the drywall, paint and carpet that make up your house, but your strongly-held Capricornian beliefs are the foundation of yourself and very little will ever change that.
Conjunct Venus: you long to find a partner who is like you in both mind and spirit. If someone can’t see the world as you see it—or in a very similar fashion—they’re simply not worth your time. You understand that there’s no such thing as a “fixer-upper” partner, and that they have to come willing to work on themselves under their own motivation, or not come at all.
Square Midheaven: Having supervisors that don’t understand the way you work is something you find irritating. To you, the workplace should be one of trust and obedience to the rules; not one where your superiors hover over your shoulder and yell at you when they don’t like what they see. You (and your Leo self) would love to be at the top, but question your worthiness and hesitate to try being yourself in order to get there.
Square Lower Heaven: it probably doesn’t surprise you that not having a “husband, daughter, home and career” (as you’ve always wanted) bothering you actually appears in your chart. If you were doing this chart analysis for someone else, you might write that not having their “white picket fence dream” is a source of grief for them, and—reflecting on your own life—might cause tears in envy of others.
Quintile Pluto: death may not bother you as much as it does others. You’re the type that sees the funeral industry as more of a career and less of a thing to be ignored until the last minute. If you could apply your Capricornian nature to death, change and reincarnation, you certainly would.
Sextile Mars: when family conflict comes into play, you want to be the mediator. Not one to let resentment fester, you try to work things out with others. When the situation between you and another is untenable (like you and your mother), you find value in airing your problems in therapy. Having a shoulder to cry on when family problems arise is important to you, as is the ability to learn where to set boundaries and how to enforce them.
Wow, that looks really nice with the planets as bullet points/accompaniment!
