YOUR StarPower ASTROLOGICAL GLOSSARY
After you read this once, you will find that it sticks to your brains. The reason is that you've already absorbed so much 'star stuff' in your lifetime that when you read this in PERFECT ORDER, it will be as if you KNEW IT ALREADY. So by reading it once, you can memorize everything on this page, fully, to an amazing degree. You, too, can make a moonlighting living doing readings, stargazers earn up to l00$ the hour. And often doing highly paid party entertaining work, 500$ a night, depending on city you're in. It's truly memorizing this which is the basis of being an astrologer or 'stargazer' as I like to call it. When you begin to read charts, you'll LEARN from that, too.

II. INFLUENCES OF THE PLANETS
SUN- This is not a planet, but a luminary; it's the biggest quality or thing you have in your life, represents what you're known for, your reputation, your greatest talent. In a woman's chart it symbolizes the male side of her own identity, her fame, her career. It also symbolizes the type of husband she wants and father she had. In a man's chart, it is himself. It can be the male SON or sweetheart.
MOON- The Moon is also a luminary. It represents the woman in a man's life (his mother or wife.) In a woman's chart it can also be her mother, aunt, sister, friend. In both sexes the Moon represents the inner YOU, your feelings, your psyche, the emotional type you are. The house moon rules is your closest female person.
RISING SIGN- (ascendant). This represents your physical type, typical behavior, mood, front door of chart, it's also your home's front door, where you are usually found, how you operate. MORE importantly, it determines the single planet that is the RULER of the chart. RISING DEGREE refines it even further. Hindus call the RISING ASTERISM the entire area 'around' that rising degree, up as well as down.
VENUS- The Goddess of love symbolizes what gives you pleasure. It can be art talent, social abilities, how you are when in love. It generally is the sweetheart or mate, but also rules the partner in business.It is what sweetens the life.
MARS- This is the motor that animates you. A strong Mars gives you drive, energy, ambition, strong ego-identity, leadership gifts. It is the SELF ENERGY, the muscle you bring to your identity projection.
MERCURY- Intelligence, the way you think, speak, write. It's also your SIBLINGS, and rules young people, children, students. It rules your books, studies.
JUPITER- This is the planet of luck and shows where certain gain lies for you. It also rules learning, expansion, travel. THE TEACHER. The guru. In Sanksrit that word means, 'dispells darkness.' Rules Sagittarius.It rules LUCK. Your good karma coming on a tray!
SATURN-This is the planet that shows where you HAVE A HARD TIME, where you need to grow to survive OR ELSE! AT BEST, it's the MISSION IN LIFE, the DEDICATION AND DISCIPLINE. If a person, it is THE FATHER or BOSS. Rules Capricorn, Father Time. FATE! The house Saturn rules is your severest critic.
URANUS- Rules ideas or people that stimulate you intellectually, that illuminate you, and cause change in your life. THE FRIEND, the SCHOOL FORCE, or club you go to. Rules Aquarius.
NEPTUNE- Ability to fake it, lie, make things disappear, fool people, con men, actors but also on highest level, the good use, the priest, soul doctor pastor, one who helps you have faith, believe, pray and who can legitimately create magic for you. Neptune RULES the astral plane, your friendly ghosts, passed on presences, your own Soul, selfless charity. Faith that lets you achieve eternal life, goodness, trust instead of rapacious selfism. Neptune is THE SPIRITUAL unseen GUIDE or angel and what he's trying to help you with. Also, CAN rule drink, drugs, the CHAOS around you that makes you a hopeless case. Rules sign Pisces.
PLUTO- Temptation, sin, the will to prevail. Can indicate obsessions, compulsions, criminality. It rules doing 180's and self transforming, rebirth. Can wipe away the past. Can as easily makes us ruthless, tricky. Rules SEXUAL AFFAIRS, the quality of personal magnetism. Said to rule Scorpio. House it rules does all the above.
CHIRON- This is an asteroid or 'planetoid' between Saturn and Uranus that has a 51 year orbit of earth. It represents the 'wounded healer' someone with empathy into those who might have their very problem. Said to rule VIRGO, already a healing sign.
BACCHUS- Speculative planet. Fun & great wealth. The Good life. RULER OF TAURUS. The Uberwealthy.
MIDHEAVEN POINT or MC- The doorway to your mission in life. A mini description of what you want to do for the planet.
Part of Fortuna- An Arabian part, your special LUCK point. It's also who you link with and where. You'd need a book on calculating Arabian parts. SOLAR software does it, however quite costly.
NODES or ECLIPSE POINTS- The group connections you have. (Called Rahu Ketu in India). These are the invisible head and tail of the "dragon" which, (connected to a lunation,) creates eclipses! They are about linking. When a planet links to them, that linking is easy. Networking connections.
The SQUARE of any two planets gives conflict but growth. The thing challanges but is available.
The TRINE makes things easy. It gives instant LUCK, success. Perfect, easy harmony.
The OPPOSITION makes two forces link tightly as 'complements' but there is a challenge to incorporate these two, dissimilar qualities. Defusing the battle, balancing yourself and negotiation may be req'd.
The SEMISQUARE shows something close that can be used.
The SESQUIQUAD shows you have to go far, but can link with this and win.
The CONJUNCTION gives great power, puts things RIGHT in your lap! Something is right on you.
The SEXTILE gives ideas/opportunities that MAYBE you can achieve. It gives ease in getting information. But nothing's a shoo-in with a sextile. It's just an opp.
THESE ASPECTS will perhaps LINK two planets or maybe three, and thusly give a new 'gestalt' quality. Sometimes 3 or 4 planets link for a very rare, unusual POWER, DESTINY and COMPLEX 'flavor'. Ho Chi Minh had 8 or 9 planets all linked. A man of history. USA used him during WWII as their leader, gave him guns, training. Then we left & he led NORTH VIETNAM against us. OSAMA, same deal. We used him, taught him, paid him. Then left the area.
ALL PLANETS especially COMBINATIONS of two or three have a + and a - way of operating. ANY two planets can project a dark side. Rarely Jup/Ven or Merc ?Moon/ Sun as they're neutral or positive. But add a malefic planet, they can have a dark side. But even TWO MALEFICS can have a good side. MAR/SAT is a hard worker. SUN/ SAT is aspect more presidents have than any other. Usually, abstinant people donít have the negative spin to the paired planets' action. People whose auras are really screwed up, bodies ill, they get the minus activity. Can't get the positive. You tofu & salad eaters always get the positives. You know who you are.
WHY YOU ARE UNFAMILIAR WITH SESQUIQUAD AND SEMISQUARE. Reason is: Many stargazers don't use them.. The EBERTIN graduate stargazer does. Any planet in ZERO CARDINAL signs, like ZERO ARIES would be 45 degrees from 15 TAURUS on one side, 15 AQUARIUS on the other side. And across the circle 15 LEO and 15 SCORPIO are the sesquiquad to that ZERO ARIES pt.
EVERY PLANET has this square or rectangle BUILT off it. The two 45's and the 2 - 135's.
In Astrology, these are 12 sections, (called Houses) to everyone's natal horoscope, at the moment of birth or at the moment of any event. The Astrologer calculates them by determining what part of the zodiac was 'rising in the East' at the time of birth, thusly distributing the zodiac in the different Houses of not only a birth horoscope, but of any moment in any given day. The Zodiac is divided into 12 Signs which fall into 12 Houses, each House representing or ruling a different area of life. Go to astro.com and cast your own horoscope. Once you have your 'houses' start to think in terms of HOUSE RULERS. The ruler of the tenth describing by sign and hour your true destiny.
