Hey all, I'm becoming more curious about my birth chart lately, as I'm new to astrology. So I'm wondering if there is anything interesting about my chart? I'd like to learn about what shape I have, ruling planets/signs etc. Any info or general insights would be appreciated too. Thank you!
You're asking for a lot. We can talk about a chart for hours on end. In my opinion, every chart is interesting. Every person is interesting. I will mention a few things that jump out at me.
The big thing is - you have a wound to your self-identity - who you think you are - and your self-expression (South Node in Gemini, 5th). You feel that the way you communicate, the way you process thoughts and verbalize them - is problematic. You probably struggle with self-doubt and self-criticism. You can be obsessive about the self-doubt and being a perfectionist. (Virgo Sun in 8th).
To remedy this, you need to open up to people - expand yourself - be optimistic and trust that you'll get some good and valuable feedback.
You are different and you like being unique. You're probably super smart and inventive - and you don't mind working hard to be really good at the things that interest you. You are, after all, a perfectionist. You will not be terribly good at expressing feelings and even though you definitely have a social side, you can be a bit of a loner.
You will like investigating and analyzing yourself and others. You may be drawn to metaphysics - the occult. You might also like science and researching all kinds of things. You may also have a good handle on psychology and understand deep emotional issues - but you yourself won't be particularly expressive of emotion. Doesn't mean you don't feel your feelings or don't understand them. You just like handling them privately.
I think you're probably pretty creative and intuitive.
If you do in fact get obsessive - analyze to understand yourself and others - which helps your thinking to be less obsessive. It gets obsessive when you don't understand something clearly. It's important to understand, which releases any obsessive thinking.
You have a locomotive planetary shape with Venus in Leo leading in the 7th. The aim here is to develop your confidence, sense of inner security about who you are and to express yourself warmly and eloquently with the people you feel close with. There is a need to communicate with understanding, compassion and caring. This isn't easy for you. You don't have any water in your chart except for Pluto in Scorpio and the Scorpio MC - which is about emotions. Still, when we express ourselves - it is the feeling behind our words that matter. So this is challenging, but an important challenge to take.
The locomotive "empty space" between Venus and Saturn - the midpoint between them is the focus of the pattern. It is Taurus, 4th house. The 4th house is the Moon's house - the house of emotional nourishment, compassion and understanding - it is emotional development. Taurus is about simple things, physical enjoyment, the senses, being in tune with nature, being IN nature - and inner peace. This is the goal - to feel peaceful inside. But to achieve this, you must analyze and understand.
That's all for now. Does any of this feel right to you?
