1. Venus
Here are some keywords to assist you in better understanding the energy of the planet Venus:

Love, feeling, harmony, relationships, ability to give and take, longing and desire for union, sensory pleasures such as in five senses, beauty, sensuality, aesthetic peception, art, talents, good taste, the throat and neck, being vain, temptation, focusing on external factors, what we value, money and how we earn it. Venus is the feminine energy principle in the birth chart.

2. Saturn
In traditional astrology, Saturn is considered to be a malefic planet and tends to operate through our fear. Saturn is considered to be thrifty, tactful, disciplined, stern, cold and severe. When Saturn transits our chart he usually brings some kind of limitation to our lives. Frustration and hard work is expected from Saturn. If you have met the challenge and worked through a Saturn transit, you will often manifest wisdom and benefits from your hard work. Sometimes when Saturn transits your chart decisions are made or finalized. On the positive side when you are self-disciplined and self-directed at a task, accomplishment and financial gain is your "Saturnian" reward. If you have Saturn strong in your chart, you may be drawn to antiques, ruins, ancient times and even collecting old objects of substance and worth.

Saturn and the sign of Capricorn reside in the 10th house of the zodiac and starts at the cusp called the MC or Medium Coeli. The 10th house is typically linked to structures, real estate, your public reputation and work in society, timing, cycles and wisdom earned as a result of difficult tasks. The 10th house, the ruler of the 10th and planets in the 10th are also symbolic of the mother, traditionally, or the parent who was most influential in your life. Saturn is a tough teacher and taskmaster, if you will. He sets limits, boundaries and obstacles for us to overcome. Depending on how well we do, he may grant us a "reward"Ša reward for our hard work. In Karmic Astrology, Saturn plays an important role and represents cycles of time. When we are in a "karmic" relationship, there is a feeling of lack of control over the events and circumstances within the relationship. Through these circumstances and events, we develop a new self-awareness, a new understanding of the person we are involved with and also how we relate to the environment. Saturn will often present us with someone approximately 7 years older or younger than ourselves. "When the student is ready, the teacher (Saturn) will appear." Some karmic relationships are teacher/student, parent/child or counselor/patient. There is something which must be taught and something which needs to be learned and understoodŠby both participants.

Martin Schulman, in his wonderful Karmic Astrology series states: "Every time our unconscious is working something out, it calls into our lives the people who have within the pieces of the answer we are seeking." What he means is that you may find that a certain type of person or situation repeatedly enters your life. Just as you end a relationship with one person with a particular problem, another enters your life, often disguised, with a similar problem! (that is if you haven't worked out the last difficulties) OrŠyou may meet several people consecutively with the same sun sign or the same hobbies. There is something the universe is pointing you towards and you must pay attention to what is being presented for you to learn. This is Saturn - the wise teacher.

When I interpret a relationship/compatibility chart, I always pay attention to the contacts Saturn makes to another's chart. Saturn contacts between charts are binding and are usually symbolic of a long term relationship or, at the very least, an important relationship. When Saturn does not make any significant contacts to another's chart, the relationship could be wonderful and romantic but when difficulties surface thre may not be the drive or ability for the two people involved to work on the relationship to keep it together over the long term.

THE WORLD Card - Number XXl or 21
The World card in the tarot deck is card #21 and is symbolic of Saturn. This card depicts a naked woman draped in a bright red flowing scarf. She is surrounded by a green oval-shaped wreath, with red ribbons. The wreath is reminiscent of a Christmas wreath which some display during the month of December as a celebration for the end of the year. The four fixed symbols (Bull-Taurus, Lion-Leo, Eagle-Scorpio and the face of a blond haired man symbolic of Aquarius-The Water Bearer), of the zodiac are located in each of the four corners of this card. It is the last card of the Major Arcana and in the Fools journey. His wisdom and experience is now complete and he has accomplished his purpose. This card signifies fulfillment and the final completion of time in our human experience and the culmination of a long journey. The World is symbolic of fulfillment after accomplishing your heart's desire.


3. Pluto
The Devil Card in the Tarot deck is symbolic of some of the types of feelings we have when in a relationship with someone when we have a Venus/Pluto Conjunction. We may feel so completely bonded to this person in an almost obsessive way. Because of this obsession we will often feel tied down or stifled by the intensity of this energy almost as if it is against our will! We often merge with this person on a very deep level losing our independence and allowing ourselves to be controlled and enslaved to this addictive feeling of sexual love. When we become addictive in our love patterns we often get caught up in appearances and the physical part of the relationship. We begin to limit ourselves, choosing to stay in the dark about other areas of the relationship. When we neglect seeing other areas of the relationship we can start to think negatively about seeing the relationship without this passionate energy and the intensity of the connection. We can become stuck in fear and doubt at this point.

I have had my own experiences in relationships with Venus Pluto contacts and if you read Linda Goodmans Relationships Signs books she emphasizes Venus/Pluto as "soulmate" or "twin soul" aspect...there is a very intense and deep love between the parties. It isn't only the Venus person who is doing the loving..the Pluto person is loving the Venus person but with a more "transformative" and intense/possessive love..usually the Venus person is overwhelmed, allured, attracted, consumed, and petrified all at the same time!! It is a vey intense and passionate encounter. When Venus Pluto conjunct in synastry usually other people "see" how in love the two are without any words between the couple..they could walk down the street and others will simply be envious and take notice!! It's an amazing thing!

Pluto connections are always intensely transformative. When we are in a relationship with another where there is a Venus/Pluto conjunction...our lives, for better or for worse...will never be the same.

Here are some keywords to assist you in better understanding the energy of the planet Venus:

Love, feeling, harmony, relationships, ability to give and take, longing and desire for union, sensory pleasures such as in five senses, beauty, sensuality, aesthetic peception, art, talents, good taste, the throat and neck, being vain, temptation, focusing on external factors, what we value, money and how we earn it. Venus is the feminine energy principle in the birth chart.

Here are some keywords to assist you in better understanding the energy of the planet Pluto:

Deep transformation, the depths, darkness, the source, underground, beneath, psyhological forces, our instincts, power, control, helplessness, dependency, intensity of strength, drive for far reaching and deep changes in self and in others, healing forces, hypnotic, destructive, sadistic, sexual organs, sex, the occult,compulsions, obsession and emotional entanglement. Pluto's deep transformative energy principle is responsible for making long lasting and much needed changes in our lives.


4. Chiron
Chiron is a planetoid which orbits between the path of Saturn and Uranus. He was discovered in 1977. I call him a "he" since Chiron relates to the Wounded Healer - The Centaur. A Centaur is a mythical creature that is half man and half horse and he is symbolic of the sign of Saggitarius. It is said that Chiron had aimed his poison arrow outward and was accidentally wounded by his own dart. Because of this, he had a wound that would not heal. Very often when we receive a wound in childhood, or have a painful experience, we can repress that pain and carry it with us throughout our lives. Often we are able to transform that pain or hurt as a lesson we needed to learn. As a result of these painful lessons, we are later able to utilize this knowledge to help or heal others who have experienced a similiar wound or pain in a particular area of life. For example: A woman who is raped becomes a Rape Counselor helping other women deal with their betrayal. It could be the child that everyone teases in school, the "nerd" who develops a unique idea to win wordly praise and recognition. It is often what we repress that propells us.

It is no "coincidence" that we tend to attract people or experiences to us who have either suffered the same issues or experiences as ours if we have not resolved our own painful experiences. Sometimes, though, we are meant to assist others, once we have completed our own internal work. Have you ever noticed that we tend to attract the same kinds of experiences and people to us?? They are only disguised differently!

Planets, asteroids and the like are usually disovered synchronistically during a time when it is symbolic of the collective and outer worldy events happening during its' discovery. The discovery of Chiron was no different as he was discovered during the beginning of our moving into the direction of a more healthy and holistic lifestyle. Energy workers, massage therapists, and astrologers abound! There were new technological discoveries...a bridge between the old and the new.

Chiron is considered to be a "bridge" between the symbolism of both Saturn and Uranus. Between the old structures of principles of our lives and the innovations of the collective. When I look at the glyph (picture symbol) for Chiron, I also see a small key....a key to "unlock" a door. Chiron can also be considered to be a key or knowledge to unlock something within us as individuals or a bridge or key to another person or to the collective.

I have seen some interesting dynamics between birth charts of individuals who have Chiron contacts between them. Chiron seems to be a teacher of sorts and he prefers that we take responsibility for doing our homework. In fact, he makes sure we do by "keying in to" or bridging us to the people we need to meet in this lifetime, that we need to work with. He seems to have the sage-like wisdom of Saturn yet is able to transform that wisdom into something unique, and new and useful for today and in the future...just like Mr. Force - us - to Change, Uranus!

What should be noted is that Chiron has a few faces. He is the "wounded" one for certain and from that hurt he is capable of being a great the teacher to heal others because of his painful experiences. However, he can also wound others, hurt others with his knowledge or pain if he has not resolved these issues successfully in himself.

It has been said that "When the student is ready, the teacher appears". Where is Chiron located in your Birth Chart?

6. The Vertex
The Vertex is not a planet. It is an intersection of the ecliptic with the prime vertical (Nadir) in the West. In an astrological Chart, The Vertex always appears in the Western Hemisphere of the chart, usually through Houses 5-8. Because of the location of the Vertex in the West, the nature of the Vertex is about the "relating" principle. The house the Vertex is located in your own birth chart will define the types of relationships you seek or draw into your life and how you utilize the principle of relating in all of your relationships.

When people you meet have planets conjunct your vertex or visa versa you will see something special about them...and you do not usually forget the person. There is an instant connection on some level and for some specific purpose. The nature of the relationship can be intense and have a sense of fatedness. It seems that the vertex attracts important or fated people and events into our lives. Examples: If ones person's Mars is conjunct (the same astrological degree) your own Vertex you will probably think that person to be very sexy/sexual and connected with their dynamic energy. The may either incite or excite you! When a person's Saturn is conjunct your Vertex, they may be somewhat "stabilizing" or offer some sage advice to you. You may look up to this person for the discipline, lessons or structures they bring into your life or visa versa. We do not always welcome the lessons or Saturnian energy one brings to a relationship.

I once had a job applicant I really liked! I ended up placing him in a job and earning a nice commission from that placement that year. We never met in person and asked if he would share his birth data with me. His Jupiter was conjunct my Vertex in my 8th house..he brought me luck in financial matters by allowing me to earn a commission off him. I receive commissions from Clients (my Venus in the 8th)!

I love using the Vertex in chart comparisons and compatibility. If you look back to significant people and events in your life you will find connections to your Vertex and Anti-vertex, the point opposite the Vertex. In some ways the energy seems to be similar to that of the nodal axis...but the Vertex, unlike the Nodal axis, doesn't store past memory or talents and abilities. It serves to draw the necessary people, events and learning experiences into our lives. When it does those people and experiences are significant in some way, as indicated by the house placement and sign. There is a fated quality to these contacts.

Where does the Vertex fall in your birth chart?? Order an Astrological Chart for yourself or as a gift for a friend or family member. I will need your date, time and place of birth. Call me at 732-462-5239 or place your Order online through this site under the Readings Chart Services Section.

7. IC/4th House

The cusp of the 10th house is called the Midheaven or Median Coeli, and to me, the sign on the cusp of this house embodies the traits that we most admire and therefore aspire to integrate into our lives. Quite often, we do this naturally through our careers. The 10th house is symbolic of or destiny, public reputation and all business affairs.  It is where we find our power to influence  This house is often symbolic of the Mother. To completely understand our Midheaven (MC) sign, we also to have to look at its polar opposite sign found on the 4th house cusp, Nadir (IC).

The IC sign symbolizes characteristics that are very comforting and nourishing to us. We feel at home with our 4th house signs and planets. The IC and the 4th house are symbolic of our ancestral ties, and our roots or genealogy, symbolic by the father. as the MC and the 10th house is symbolic of our father figures (our models for worldly success).  More often than not, both houses refer to both parents

9. The Ascendant/Descendant/1st House/7th House
Knowing your partners 7th house cusp (the relationship house) and the ruler of that house will indicate the type of partner you may attract or are attracted to and the method of relating within a relationship.

The Ascendant or Rising sign is the sign rising on the horizon at the time of birth. This is the face we show the world, our “mask” for which our Sun hides behind. This is our outer personality, temperament and disposition as well as how we experienced our early home environment growing up. It is the way others see us and also gives indication of our physical appearance. The ruler of the Ascendant and the aspects (connections to other planets in your birth chart) further delineate and define your physical appearance.

The Descendant, or 7th house cusp, its ruler and the aspects it makes in your birth chart, is symbolic of the type of partner you are attracted to. The 7th house is the house of all partnerships including marriage and legal contracts yet also considered the house of open enemies or the Defendant in a law suit.

One of the first things you could look at when you have the birth data of a potential partner, is the ruler of their 7th house cusp/Descendant, where it is located and what aspects it makes to other planets in  the chart.  The condition of this ruling planet will reveal volumes about how they act within a relationship.  You also want to  note what his/her ruling planet is doing in"your" chart that may influence the relationship.

Knowing your partners 7th house cusp (the relationship house) and the ruler of that house will indicate the type of partner you may attract or are attracted to and the method of relating within a relationship.

Knowing the date, time and place of birth is important in making the determination of the Ascendant or Rising sign, the sign rising on the horizon at the time of birth. This cusp sets up all the other house cusps that are the divisions of the houses or areas of life


10. I Dreamed You Into My Life - First Soul Mate

I Knew I Loved You

Maybe it's intuition
But some things you just don't question
Like in your eyes
I see my future in an instant
And there it goes
I think I've found my best friend
I know that it might sound more than a little crazy
But I believe

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

There's just no rhyme or reason
Only this sense of completion
And in your eyes
I see the missing pieces
I'm searching for
I think I've found my way home

I know that it might sound more than a little crazy
But I believe

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life

A thousand angels dance around you
I am complete now that I've found you

I knew I loved you before I met you
I think I dreamed you into life
I knew I loved you before I met you
I have been waiting all my life
