this is me leaping on the latest astrological bandwagon. emphasis is mine on parts i find particularly insightful, and the last paragraph is painfully so:
Sun in Pisces, Moon in Scorpio
Your nature tends to be hard and selfish, although often you are judged as more unyielding than you really are. Your innermost nature is sensitive and receptive, but you have erected an elaborate system of self-defense. You possess real business ability and the necessary energy to achieve success, if fortune cooperates. Because of your receptive, sensitive individuality, you are often misled into committing actions that you can’t possibly justify. The key to a more harmonious existence lies in concentrating your energies before they have a chance to dissipate. You have an innate capacity for investigation, which could be used to probe into your own psyche and give you the self-understanding you seek.
Ascendant in Cancer, Moon in the Fifth House
At the time of your birth the zodiacal sign of Cancer was ascending in the horizon. Its ruler the Moon is located at the fifth house.
Cancer is the fourth sign of the zodiacal belt and its natives are under the rulership of the Moon. Your life will be full of changes and intermittent periods of activity and idleness. Your vulnerability to external influences makes you subconsciously imitate the manners and ways of those with whom you relate.
In many instances, circumstances will require that you play the role of worldliness and sophistication but under the mask there will exist a very sensitive human being who is easily offended, and also very perceptive of the more subtle influences and impressions, as well as of psychic vibrations.
Cancer gives the tendency to completely retreat when hurt or frightened of a situation. This happens to you often because you tend to interfere in the affairs of others when you are not needed or wanted. Throughout your life, your responses will be emotional rather than rational.
Cancer also gives a tendency for life to be centered in the home and family; your attachment to your private and domestic habits is so strong that without them you could hardly endure. In love matters, you are emotional and gentle. For the negative aspects we must warn you against becoming overly preoccupied with trivial details of a psychological nature. Another negative tendency that you have is to flatter and to criticize carelessly, without regard for the other person’s feeling.
In matters of health, you seem to have good prospects.
Destiny may place you in environments where your natural traits can be best expressed. You will be happier when allowed to be occupied with searching for a person or a thing, though not necessarily in important work.
At first glance, we must indicate that your life will be one of very intense social activity and development of work in places of entertainment, theatre, dance, and other such places where large crowds of people come together. This position tends to make you somewhat extroverted, perhaps in spite of your own desires. The Moon here denotes tremendous change and fluctuation in matters closely connected to risky and speculative transactions, with much time and effort invested to acquiring money. From another point of view, this inclines your personality to be devoted to pleasure and to gain thereof. Your affections, unfortunately, are not altogether stable nor profound, and there is much inconsistency and superfluous adventure in your love affairs. In love you are imaginative, resourceful, fanciful, able, but perhaps a little morbid.
There is much independence in your affective relations and whether or not to your benefit, you will create an independent path for love in your life, defying even the slower tendencies of the conventional environment.
Moon in the Fifth House
The Moon, the earth satellite, was found in the fifth house at the time of your birth. This indicates that you will participate actively in business speculations with many changes occurring in this respect. You were born with a knack for dealing with people and with the ability to communicate with them, particularly in connection with business enterprises.
Your emotional nature is very much geared to your love of pleasure, and you possess a very curious aptitude which may bring you financial gains as well as pleasures in business.
In spite of the positive qualities you have, the fact of the matter is that in love you are very changeable, unstable, and too preoccupied with trivialities.
Your love feelings are very well developed and lead to strong drives for sensations and passionate tendencies which unfortunately are not directed to one object alone.
It is possible that throughout life you may be connected with small and numerous business investments with a fairly good return.
Mars Opposition Ascendant
Mars opposition the Ascendant shows that you attract people who threaten you. You do not really have that much self-confidence; your aggressive actions are an attempt to convince yourself that you do.
Meeting others in competition is how you learn to assert yourself constructively, with greater self-control and discipline. Naturally argumentative, you are not the easiest person to get along with. You must learn to be more compromising if you want peace and harmony. Making concessions shows strength of character, not weakness, and if you realize this, you will be respected for your maturity.
In personal relationships, your offensive tactics force you to raise your defenses when the going gets rough.
But an attitude of superiority often masks feelings of inferiority or inadequacy. You have a lot of creative energy you should express. Remember, it is what you do rather than what you say you can do that is important. Develop more self-control, or you will run into many troublesome situations that could be extremely difficult to resolve.
Sun in the Ninth House
The Sun, the giver of light and energy throughout the solar system, was found in the ninth house at the time of birth. This is an indication that your real self possesses an attraction to higher levels of thought. Additionally, this indicates that the most important realizations may come through the process of pure reasoning.
You will tend to grow through the workings of your higher mind where you may find, after much striving, the creative principle and the power of self-expression.
You possess a rather austere mind which is fearless, self-confident and keenly analytical.
Regarding life events, you will be inclined to obtain success in subjects connected with law, religion, and possibly foreign lands.
Venus in the Ninth House
Venus, the planet that symbolizes universal love, was found in the ninth house at the time of birth. Your mind appears as very adaptable, gentle, peace-loving and tactful. This position indicates that the secret for your ability to reach a state of harmony and emotional balance may come through the use of your higher mental powers. You have been born with an exquisitely refined, artistic mind which has a very subtle appreciation of all that has to do with culture. Your disposition is kind, congenial, gentle and sympathetic and you have a natural ability to assist other individuals.
This position gives you much social intercourse with intellectual persons and success derived therefrom.
Merely minor disabilities will affect you in your intellectual endeavors. The worst that could happen would be an overly inquisitive, indecisive nature that never seems to be satisfied. However, you have within you the ability to avoid these psychological obstacles.
Saturn in the Twelfth House
Saturn, the planet of destiny, was in the twelfth house at the time of birth. This planet will place many unpleasant and annoying obstacles in your life, and intensify the feelings you have about the limitations of your environment.
Your professional honor affects your feelings very much and you are well satisfied when things go well. Destiny may have to teach you to tell the difference between fact and fantasy more clearly.
Certain complexes nest in your subconscious and show up in your mind as morbid hypersensitivity, appearing ridiculous, wanting to be alone and to do things by yourself so no one will know how you feel. You need a bit of humor and self confidence.
