I probably should of done this a long time ago, but here I am, introducing myself now, hope later is better than never.

My name is Gabriela, I'm from Romania, and I'm an Aquarius and you can say astrology is one of my many passions. I very much like the idea of the stars guiding us in our lives and all of the stories that a chart can tell about a person.

Some of you may have seen my previous thread, where I jump-started in the read my chart section ( although I didn't get any readings because the hour when I was born is still approximately, yet I'm sure that my ascendant is Virgo and not Leo. I was obsessed over cleanliness when I was a kid and now I'm really interested in fitness, diet and keeping healthy overall... and I've seen that pride is a common feature for Virgo, and I don't mean being boasty)

As I've wrote in my previous thread, I'm a beginner filmmaker and the elements that make this art: image, sound and story are a never ending fascination for me.

I'm very interested in exploring myself and my life as I hope this will bring me more understanding and also I've had a couple of life changing experiences and insights that I think are worth to be shown and maybe help others understand themselves better.

Um, ok, I hope this wasn't too long, and I hope to learn more about myself and astrology by talking to you guys.

Take care!
Hello and welcome to our astrological learning forum freshblues. Many of us are beginners, while others are more experienced, dr. farr for example has approaching five decades of astrological study completed and we learn by discussion :smile:

I see your a beginner filmmaker/producer , do you want to talk specs and software ?

I haven't seen your other thread even though I spend a lot of time on that section , I'll give it a look now. Your intro wasn't too long , you could of made it longer if you wanted.

Hei there JUPITERASC, thank you for your welcoming! I am also a beginner
and I hope that by discussing with you guys and searching this forum I will learn more too.
I mainly started playing by interpreting family&friends charts and it was more like a joke for me as well as for them.
But as I've done that and searched the web for answers
I saw that the interpretations were true and I was blown away
Regarding interpreting charts for family and friends,
it is important to keep in mind that since we
are so familiar with family and friends,
it is a strong likelihood that our 'interpretations' are influenced by existing personal information/knowledge of their likes, dislikes and general life events and lifestyles.
So that is not unsurprising that our interpretations of friends charts seem amazingly accurate

The challenge is of course accurately predicting an event such as relocation, change of career/work/job, birth, marriage et al

Research was conducted by a team of psychologists
who gave astrological interpretations of their natal charts to a group of people who were all seated separately at individual desks
and asked them to write comments regarding the accuracy or otherwise of the interpretations.

The researchers collected the responses.

Everyone without exception was amazed at the accuracy of their astrological reading.
The researchers then instructed the group to read the astrological interpretation that had been provided to all other participants.
The group then discovered that each member of the group had been told the exact same interpretation

Astrology cannot be mastered in an hour, a morning, a day, a week, a month or even a year.... much study is necessary

A good place to begin is to master the significations of the planets
The next important factor is learning the significations of the signs http://www.skyscript.co.uk/aries.html so that the way a planet behaves in different signs is clearly understood

Then study the houses

The actions of planets in particular houses with particular signs varies

another important factor is:


1. The good or bad signified by a house emanates from the ruler of the house.
This is the basic rule. The ruler of the house is giver of the material of the house.

Zoller gives the example of his own chart where he has Combusted Mercury in 11th, ruler of 4th. He comments that this kind of placement brings adversity to ones home and dwellings.

2. Benefit in one area of life can be produced by adversity, or even conflict, in another.

Again Zoller gives example from his own chart.
Jupiter in 9th in Scorpio disposited from Mars in 11th: Wisdom coming from conflicts.

3. The delineation tells you the what. The
predictive techniques tell you the when.
I am very interested in what astrology can say about our subconscious level, hope to learn more about that
There's a technique that delineates the Primary Motivation of the individual and here's an example from the thread I linked to :smile:
4. The Elemental Quality of the Sign of the Ascendant is showing the type of Primary Motivation of the native.
Fire goes for freedom of action and power.
Air goes for freedom of expression and movement.
The Water signs need emotional security
Earth signs need physical security.

The person with masculine Ascendant (or majority of planets in masculine signs) speaks in active terms: "I did this to that person".
The person with feminine sign on Ascendant or majority planets in feminine signs, speaks in passive terms: "This happened to me".

The Feminine signs seek advice because they need second hand in their decisions, in fact they want someone else to make the decision for them.
Masculine signs seek advice because they have many options so they are not sure which option is better.

Cardinal signs are most active. Cardinal water and earth (Cancer and Capricorn) are working great amount of actions but in circumstances and environment structured already by someone else.
Libra and Aries (Cardinal masculine) are working great in any kind of circumstances.

Fixed signs are centripetal, they need center. They are very successful in Acquisations.
Taurus hoards money.
Leo hoards glory and honor.
Scorpio hoards the hidden things, hidden motivations of other people, seek energy and vitality.
Aquarius hoards Knowledge.

Mutable signs vacillate between the two: cardinal and fixed.

5. Examine the planets which most closely aspects the Ascendant. These planets add to the whole Primary Motivation thing.

Planets aspecting the Ascendant represent powers the native can use in the world.

The aspecting planet's local determination will be added to the Primary
(Venus in 5th will add love for pleasure and entertainment to the native's Primary Motivation).

The aspect between the aspecting planet and the Ascendant tells you how the being of the planet and its local determination are linked.

6. The Ruler of the Ascendant by its house position tells you where (what area of life) the native will seek to realize his/her Primary Motivation.

Look also at all 5 dignity rulers in the place of the ASC. The Almuten and Exalted ruler are lamost as significant as the domicile ruler (sometimes even more).

The Ruler of the Ascendant (as well as the other rulers) by its nature and zodiacal state shows the methods the native will use and the success or failure of the drive.

This is great quote by Zoller:

Lets assume that a person has Cancer on the Ascendant,
The primary motivation of this person is the Need for Emotional Security.
The ruler/s of the Ascendant and their zodiacal and local state will determine How would this be achieved.

Lets assume Moon on IC in Libra Peregrine.
Jupiter in 6th (but 7th sign!) in Capricorn.
Venus in Sag in 6th - Peregrine.
Mars in Scorpio in 4th (but 5th sign!)
Saturn (term ruler) is in 5th Scorpio Peregrine.

We can see that Moon is strong by accident (being on angle), so we can judge first from there.
The need for Emotional Security this person would seek in the home, in the place of the father. The father would be the means through which this person would try to achieve the Emotional Security.
Jupiter - the exalted ruler is weak by being cadent, Venus too. They can't produce much in giving the emotional security this person seeks.
Jupiter by universal means suggest that the native would seek wisdom, religion (and the person actually did!) but by being cadent and in fall, it can't productively give what it promise.
Mars is in 4/5th and is strong by zodiacal state, but is out of sect malefic.
It would try to win competitions, but also with Saturn in 5th will give great deal of creativity. Mars rules the 10th - creativity and looking for career, would also give some amount of emotional security for this person. But by being square with Sun in 7th it means that it will have opposition from authorities and other people in general.

The primary motivation is great deal of what we unconsciously and often consciously seek for.

Once that motivation is broken or someone interrupt it, we seek to fix that in the every possible way we can do that.

Hello Forum Member! (nice profile name ;)

So, have you seen my first thread? Maybe you could help me out a little.
Haha, yes, after I clicked submit I saw that it wasn't that big but in the editing box it seemed big.

And also, I don't know that much about specs and software. I know directing and writing. And maybe a little bit about editing. And I do want to learn camera works. If it were after me I'd learn it all but I'm not sure my brain is wired for it all... haha, if you know what I mean. I'll try.

Trust me I've got the best username on this forum : )

I've had a quick look at the thread but i'm not even a beginner when it comes to astrology, from what I can see that double stellium in cap should help you succeed when it comes to art but there could be some conflict between the planets. I would need a bit more time to understand the chart properly , if you want a rookie fumbling around in the dark let me know and I'll give it a good look in the weekend. The same things happens to me , the message box always tricks you and makes you think you're actually writing allot and it ends up just a few lines long.

I could recommend a rig for you if you want , I'm usually better at configuring gaming PCs but I already have a good idea of the components that you'll need / want for video editing.
