Re: Chart Interpretation!

I'm sorry for not leaving any feedback. I left some screenshots of my friend reacting to your reading. She thanks you a lot! Anyway, I wanted you to read her chart first because she thinks that she may not succeed in her future and has a low self-esteem, but she is very talented and I wished for her to see just how much potential she has.
Thank you again!
P.S. My friend also has migraines from time to time, so you were indeed very accurate.
P.S.2 She thanks you once more!

Re: Chart Interpretation!

Thank you so much! Sorry for not replying sooner, I've been busy for the past few days. Anyway, time to actually give you some feedback over the points, but first, I'll just tell you my (******) personality.


I'm a pessimistic person, and I often feel discouraged by the smallest of truths. I can give up on 10 month project after someone says to me that it might not succeed or basically anything negative affects me. I hate being social, I prefer being alone. I get anxious when walking in public and I'm currently dealing with suicidal depression. I don't think I know how to draw, I mean I can copy by hand drawings, but I don't think that counts. I can sing, but I hate performing in front of people. I love documenting about morbid details about diseases and basically anything that has to do with death. I am in conflict with religion, which I strongly disagree with. I'd give to charity daily if I could because animals (all animals, not just cats and dogs) complete my daily life. I sometimes cry at night because of how terrible the world is and the fact that no matter what I do nothing will fix it. I am stubborn and if something I say is right, it's right. However, I can change my opinion if I receive strong proof. I only have like 2-3 friends, because I don't want to talk to my classmates (they'll hate me) and also I observe people before talking to them. I can also forget people that I've been friends with for so many years really quickly. I sometimes have dreams of random places and events that never happened to me before which actually happen years after. I don't know what I want to be in life, because I hate Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics and Biology with all my ****** being, and I'm also lazy and bored easily. I enjoy Ouija boards, even though they don't work to me (??), Tarot cards ( haven't tried them ), and of course, Astrology. I get strangely anxious,like someone is watching me when I am in my room alone. And lastly, I have a strong urge to become someone powerful and destroy things sometimes. ( ??)


NOW TO THE ACTUAL FEEDBACK:
jup elevated cancer 10th, advisory leadership roles,
( I am scared of public speaking, although I wish to defend the rights of women and homosexuals.)
pisces 6th inclined to advisory-teaching environments,
( ME?! TEACHING?! Haha, teaching is such a bore to me sometimes. I have to advise and hit in the head people several times for them to understand. ;; )
jup lord 3/6 for health-hurdles-challenges
elevated cancer, hence may not be all that great to caution,
could scrape through career development however
( My grandmother and aunt had cancer, so I hope I never get that as well. )
jup 11th from moon for gains, good.
( NICE! Thank you!)
jup cancer trines scorpio 2nd supportive of family-finances,
( I tend to support my family on heavy decisions because I don't think I have the right to decide what's best for them. If they are ready to face the consequences, then go forth and make haste! )
trines own pisces 6th protective of employment prospects,
while debilated aspect over cap 4th
not good for mother, domestic comforts, property matters.
( Me and my mother used to fight a lot in the past, well it wasn't really fighting, just me getting beat up by her. Now I am the one that angers her mostly.)

moon lord 10th over 12th, foreign assignments,
12th house for losses hence may not be all that bright to begin with.
( ;;--;; WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY MOOOOOOOOOON)
moon virgo highest deg for core personaltiy,
moon virgo critical thinking-perfectionist,
inclined to psychology, healthcare, teaching.
( I wish I couldn't relate to this but I do. ;;-;; Also, I still don't know what core personality is, but I guess it might be my original personality? I guess so.)

taurus 9th from moon for luck, venus own taurus good;
( The best example of good luck I've ever had were on my stupid exams, which I DID NOT study for, I still got a pretty high score! D)
venus 2nd highest deg for vocation-factor,
sun-mer-venus taurus 8th focused, stubborn,
literary-oratory aptitudes, research;
( That's accurate 100%!!!)
may be in hotel management, cuisine, banking;
quality control-audit roles perhaps;
( Talking with people is involved, so a big nope from me.)
able to cope with challenges of life.
( Sometimes, on other times I feel overwhelmed and just want to die already.)

mer lord 9th negating to 8th, negating luck-education-father's support;
( My father is a very conservative individual, he sometimes judges me harshly for all I do.)
mer lord 12th over 8th, success amidst adversity.
( That's pretty nice!)
asc lord venus over 8th affecting health - throat-thyroid-kidney etc,
mercury multiples issues, sun largeness/enlargement, etc
( Fun fact: When I get a cold, my neck gets affected the most)
ketu sag 3rd rash impulsive actions-initiatives, accident prone,
detachment from siblings,
( 100% true, however I don't have any siblings lmao, but I guess it's just what happens to people who do have siblings.)
hyper-philosophical and over-optimistic attitude, sports, ambitious;
( Sports are a big no from me, as I said, I'm lazy and unmotivated, also a pessimistic person. But, hyper-philosophical sounds good to me!)

sat-mars-rahu analytical gemini 9th,
( Analytical is the way to go! )
sat-mars lords 5/7 good for prosperity,
mars elevated aspect over cap 4th for landed property,
luck after marriage, settling late at 28-36-42,
( To be honest, I don't really want to get married, like ever. It hopefully never happens, marriage sounds annoying to me and gross overall. If it does happen I hope I get a divorce after like 5 nanoseconds)
rational-scientific-secular attitude towards religion,
( Indeed, 100% true!)
may be inclined to education in
aeronautical-sattelite communications/engg,
space psychology-psychometrics, space food,
audit-quality control-research into space related subjects,
distant-foreign travels, need for pilgrimage,
( Space is so cool!!! I suck too badly to actually have a career there to be honest. I personally think that we are just the tinniest and most insignificant ants of the universe. Depressing, right? But it's true.)
analytical gemini 10th from moon for career,
()

prone to rise-fall in life, needing ancestor worship,
prayers for welfare of ancestors,
observing death anniversaries in the family religiously,
fasting on black-moon day evenings, milk-fruit.
( I personally have no opinion on this, since death anniversaries are so...boring. And long. I am not too keen on finding out about my ancestors either.)
libra asc, social, artistic, business, cities, war, stormy anger,
wavery decision making.
( Social when needed. For the rest, it's 100% true)
mars-venus lords 1/7 over taurus-gemini friendly signs,
inclined into a relationship by mere attractions.
( -flops on the floor- I mean, it might be so. I don't know??? I never had a romantic relationship before, which I hope I never will, but I guess my curiosity tends to get the better of me regarding people. Rarely, but it does. **** it. )

ANYWAY, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOU TAKING YOUR TIME TO ANALYSE SUCH A ****** CHART OF MINE!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU AND THANK YOU AGAIN!

Advisory need not be teaching, could be one to one, counselling,
doctor, management consultant/advisor, psychologist, etc



jup lord 3/6 for health-hurdles-challenges

( My grandmother and aunt had cancer, so I hope I never get that as well. )

sun-mer-venus taurus creative! cooking? endocrinologist? ENT,
sat-mars-rahu 9th analytical airy gemini for luck tending to rise-fall
