“Good morning, Dan, we’re recording this session so you’ll have a record of it.  Today is September 14, 2012 and we’re looking at your chart.  The three most important points in any chart are the Sun, the Moon, and the Ascendant or rising sign.  The Sun shows the aspiration of our soul in this life, who we are when we’re being our best selves and letting the light shine through.  Your Sun is in Cancer, the sign of home and family, and it’s in your 6th house of health/work/service to others, but pretty close to the cusp of your 7th house of marriage.  Looks like your home and family are pretty important to you.”

“That’s correct, I’ve lived in the same home for 30 years and my kids live fairly close by except for one.”

“Dan, the Moon is the ruler of Cancer and your Moon is in Sagittarius in your 11th house of friends and groups.  Usually with the Moon in Sag, there’s a lot of travel involved.  Often people with this position lived the military life as a child, a lot of moving around.  Sag is the sign most associated with foreign contacts.  Looks like you’ve been a lot of places, and even though you were born in a small town, you don’t have a small town mind — many friends from different places, different backgrounds, different races, religions, etc.”

“That’s very interesting, Jenae.  I spent 10 years in the Navy flying planes all over the world.  I’ve been to many, many foreign countries. I’m not a prejudiced person; I have friends from all races.”

“Cancer as a sign rules the stomach and food.  With your Moon is Sag I would think you would like foreign food?”

“Yes!! I’ve eaten some strange things in my life, just for the experience!!”

“Well, I can sure see the aviation — you have Aquarius rising. Not only that, but the ruler, Uranus, is exactly conjunct Venus in Gemini!  I bet machines talk to you :)…  You have a real good intuition about mechanical things, technology, electronics and good manual dexterity to work on these things. There’s such an interesting interchange between all these planets.  Your Moon is in the 11th, in the natural Aquarian house…how about teaching groups?  Ever done any of that?  The Moon in our charts shows the legacy that we bring with us from the past…you can look at it as biological heredity, or spiritual heredity as in past lives, or both.  I like to think of the Moon as a treasure chest we can dip into at will, to me it can symbolize talents we bring with us.  Are you a teacher? Do you come from a family of teachers?

“Yes, Jenae,  I enjoy machinery and I especially enjoy the challenge of making things work properly.  No teachers  in my family that I’m aware of.  I’m not a teacher in the formal sense, like in a classroom, but I DO enjoy learning new things and have taken many classes myself, and I have trained many people, both individuals and groups, in my life. I was a fire chief for years after I got out of the service.”

“Well that would fit with groups of people working for the common good — the 11th house rules all charitable, fraternal groups, labor groups and organizations.  And that theme is underlined by your Aquarius rising.  The Ascendant is the mask of personality worn over the soul, the “You” that other people see.  I always like to use Magnum P.I. as a good example of male Aquarian energy.  Actually, Tom Selleck IS an Aquarian and they wrote that part true to form — analytical rather than emotional, intuitive, somewhat rebellious and/or eccentric, fanatically loyal to his friends, etc.  Since your Sun is in Cancer I’d say you are probably very loyal and protective of your family and when the kids were little, they couldn’t get away with stuff without you finding out intuitively.  Is that correct?”

“Yes, I always knew when they were up to something…but they were all pretty good kids. I felt the same protectiveness and loyalty to my fire crews, too.”

“Dan, I have to tell you, the way your chart sets up, that Moon in Sag could cause some problems with your digestion.  There’s a tendency to go overboard if you like a food or a drink a lot.  Sag is ruled by Jupiter which is an expansionary energy;  it’s the sign most associated with overdoing things.  In addition you have Saturn in Cancer.  It’s not conjunct your Sun but it IS in your 6th house of health.  Saturn can show a weak point in our chart that needs to be strengthened and Cancer rules the stomach. In addition to that placement, you have your chart ruler in the 4th which IS the natural Cancer house, and your Moon is in wide opposition to that Venus-Uranus conjunction in the 4th.  I’ve seen a lot of Gemini people with allergies but usually it’s airborne stuff like pollen or dander.  In your chart, there would be more emphasis on the things you ingest.  Tell me about your health, Dan.”

“Well, I DO have food allergies and this was from the time I was born. My Mother told me they couldn’t find any kind of milk or formula that I could tolerate, she told me I was raised on chicken broth.  I’m in good health, but there are certain foods  I cannot eat and I am also allergic to other things — Neosporin, latex, any kind of rubber.  Before I knew what it was, my hands used to get blisters and then crack and bleed and it was a long healing process each time this happened.  I didn’t find out about those last three until I was over 40.  I spent years eating foods my body was allergic to and I didn’t know what was wrong since the symptoms were more indicative of a contact allergen.  I just figured I’d touched too many chemicals doing field research on various farms.  And I’ve always had occasional indigestion, but in spite of all of this, I am very healthy.”

“Dan, that sounds very difficult.  Uranus in Gemini  in the 4th, Gemini rules the hands and arms.  You know, every chart I do, I learn something, too.  Your symptoms were in your hands.  I’ll remember that for the future. Did ANYTHING positive happen in your life as a result of this situation?  Venus is a beneficial planet and it’s in Gemini in your 4th, too…”

“Actually, Jenae, the blisters went up my arms, too, up almost to the elbows.  Did anything good happen?  Well, when I got the results of the tests and learned what NOT to do or eat, I guess that was a positive…oh, I did start studying more about health and nutrition.”

“Bingo !!! That was the hidden blessing in the long ordeal you endured. With Saturn in your 6th house of health, that makes perfect sense !!  Hands AND arms…I’ll have to remember that…”
