mmm..btw is it possible to know if we're an old soul according to our charts?
Oriel, Nope.Using Tropical Astrology I can't tell anyone's gender, race, culture, caste or social status, sexual orientation, or their level of soul development. I can't tell whether they are expressing the best or worse sides of their archetypes.
Isn't that great? I love that about astrology!
However, anyone interested in learning astrology or about other spiritual matters is a high soul. Kind of obvious - right? And being Chironic implies that you have incarnated many times and have those Chironic skills available, at this time as we construct the Rainbow Bridge. Come Chiron's Chiron Return in 2027 - WELL! You will all know very well that you are all very high souls. Whole generation with Uranus/Neptune conjunctions opposite Chiron? Swooshhh!
When you look at your brother's scope, you see all sorts of aspects, including a Mutable T Square with his Mercury at the apex, the arrow. It is indeed aimed at his Sage 3rd House. Learning a foreign language, studying into the different cultures around him, exploring the globe through books and the internet - all 3rd House Sage sort of things.
That said, just being a Cancer, with a Sage Moon is a TRIP.
Here is Debra Silverman acting the archetypes:
Your brother is Cancer on the outside: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M6PoWXilG64
And on the inside he is Sage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=icbovUGDZ2g
Then add in the Libra Rising and Leo Midheaven!
In your case, your Snappy T Square is the main aspect of your scope. Since your Sun is involved and Mutable in the arrow/apex position, you need to throw your passion and personality into Pisces 4th House - as we have seen.
But next we need to look at the Cardinal archetypes and how your T Square is actually very Cardinal. So 4th House Aries is important too.
There is nothing wrong with your brother. He is simply amazingly creative and super duper psychic and really really smart and a warrior. He was a warrior in past lives, Mars conjunct CHIRON, and South Node in Aries.
Basically he is pissed to have ended up on this planet at this time to face all these stupid people and he listens to very heavy music ala Pluto in Scorpio generation and... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2-BtquTKw78
He is here to be in the limelight - still Cancer's are private. Does he perform in anyway? Writing is a way to be private yet center stage. Were he to ever write a blog, everyone would read it.
Problem with Cancers is they are empaths and in past lives he was too symbiotic - he feels what everyone is feeling. This life he is here to be autonomous but also be symbiotic - his NN in Libra in Aries's ruled 1st house, and South node in 7th House, the domain of Libra. He must pull off the whole axis - a lover/warrior, artist/warrior.

Now that is a very loose Pluto conjunction - but look at that Moon merged with Jupiter in Sage in the 2nd House? Mothering such a soul is not easy. Mama Gaia is this souls Real Mother. Think global.
He will need to come on out. He needs to broadcast his authentic self. He is very amazing. Hope to meet him one day. He doesn't need drugs, of course. He IS the drug of choice.
