We are all looking for unconditional love. Most of us never got it. When we fall in love we think, "Now, finally, here is someone who will give me the (unconditional) love I've always wanted."

So we marry. Then it starts---because we're not programmed for love. Instead, we are programmed to duplicate our parents' relationship. Because of this programming, even if we found someone who loved us unconditionally, we would have to push them away.

How can we attract what we are not programmed to receive? We can't---until we take a conscious look at what we are programmed to attract. Only then can we change our lives.

This program is designed to help us do just that.

She was an extremely beautiful woman in her mid-thirties. She was also an extremely successful business woman---equal to or better than many men in her profession. She'd come to me for a consultation because she was considering remarrying. Although her two previous marriages had been unsuccessful, she longed for a man with whom she could be happy. She was in my office because she honestly wondered if that were possible.

In the course of the consultation, she shared with me that her mother was successful in her career. Message: BE A SUCCESS IN YOUR CAREER. She also shared that her mother had been married several times, so she was programmed for multiple marriages. Each time my client married, her mother encouraged her to leave her husband. Her mother's message was: MARRY, BUT DON'T STAY MARRIED. As a child, my client saw her mother win every argument with each of her husbands. Message: ARGUE WITH MEN AND WIN. My client's father was strong, but distant and unaffectionate. Message: MEN ARE DISTANT AND UNAFFECTIONATE. My client created this situation in her marriages and felt unloved by her husbands. Each of her stepfathers put up a good fight, but ultimately they left. Message: MEN WILL PUT UP A GOOD FIGHT AND THEN LEAVE.

The combination of verbal and non-verbal messages produced a woman who resented men, yet kept turning to them to make her happy. Because she was programmed for marriage to be stormy and her husbands to leave, she created just that. She married strong men and wound up emasculating them. She was looking for love, but her programming would not let her keep it.

Her fiancÚ played right into the program. He was stubborn and determined. He was not a success in his career, although he had great potential. Each time he came close to success, he'd fall short. His ambitions were high, but he became a dilettante. He made a great impression, but had no money. His programming explained it all. At one point in time, his father had been very important and successful in his career. When the young man was just a boy, his father had been nominated for an extremely prestigious award. Winning this award would have meant financial security for the rest of his life. Unfortunately, another nominee was selected as the winner. From that point on, the son was programmed to COME CLOSE, BUT FALL SHORT, and that's exactly what he did in every area of life.

His parents had not gotten along. His proud, stoic father had given him the message that THE WOMAN SHOULD PUT THE MAN FIRST. He also felt that MEN WERE MORE INTELLIGENT THAN WOMEN.

These two were programmed for each other. Here was a chauvinist up against a powerful woman; a business failure up against a business success. Neither one, however, was programmed for a warm, loving relationship, though that's what they both wanted. When faced with a situation like this, the first reaction might be to discourage a marriage, since it seems doomed to failure. Yet, these two people were attracted to each other precisely because they could give one another what each was programmed to receive. And, in spite of their programming, they loved one another. This love could, if they chose, be the impetus to help them see and release their programming and create a warm, loving relationship.

This situation occurs all the time. Our hidden messages are so deeply ingrained in our subconscious that we respond to them unknowingly. For example, if one of your hidden messages is that YOU CANNOT BE HAPPY WHILE A FAMILY MEMBER IS UNHAPPY, you will find that you are never happy because there is always someone who needs your help. Even if you are miles away, just knowing that a relative might be unhappy about something can upset you. After awhile, this message can be triggered simply by the suggestion of happiness--as soon as you feel good you have to feel bad. This totally destroys your enjoyment of life.

Another common message is that YOU WILL NEVER BE AS GOOD AS YOUR FATHER (OR MOTHER, OLDER SISTER, YOUNGER BROTHER, ETC.). If you received this message, you will see to it that you fall short of your goals so as not to surpass him. If he has not been much of a success in his life, where does that leave you?

We have been told that if we will live up to the potential indicated in the natal chart, our lives will work. Why, then, are so many lives not working? The answer is simple: they ARE working, or at least the hidden messages are working, running our lives. By knowing what these messages are, we can be free to be our highest and best, to be limitless.



Your father takes you from the security of the home and teaches you how to act in society. He helps you form your public image, the face you want the world to see. The Sun represents your father.

Sun in Pisces:

Your father taught you to be creative, inspired and idealistic. He gave you a discontent with what is. He taught you to either serve or escape responsibility.

Sun in 8th house:

Your father's message is to be secretive. He hides a great deal of himself and you do the same. You can hide from yourself, though, as well as others. He taught you to compensate for insecurities by manipulating, controlling, and putting others on the defensive. He also gave you the message to help other people develop their own money, resources, and priorities. This means that you can put other people's values, especially his, ahead of your own. He was a detective of sorts, and taught you to look beyond the obvious. Your attitude toward your father will undergo a change in this lifetime permitting you to grow and express your highest and best.

Sun-Mercury angle more than 10 degrees:

Your father taught you to stand back from situations and people in order to see them objectively. This applies to him as well. Because of your objectivity, you are able to converse with others without constantly bringing the conversation back to yourself and your opinions.

Sun in hard aspect to Jupiter:

Your father is self-indulgent and tends to exaggerate. He can make promises and not deliver. This leads to compensation: he can prove his love by giving you gifts. You do the same thing.



The most important person in your early years is your mother. Because the Moon rules both the mother and the subconscious, her influence reaches you on the deepest levels. It might be said that since the subconscious is the repository of all past-life experiences, your mother triggers this memory, which is why her influence is so strong.

Your mother's main message is to look for emotional security. The house in which the Moon is placed natally indicates that area of life in which you hope to find this security. You received this message either directly or indirectly. She told you where to look for it, and you spend the rest of your life looking for it where she said it would be. The sign in which the Moon falls describes your mother, as do the aspects to the Moon. The aspects also tell you if it will be easy or difficult to find the security you seek. Because the Moon is changeable, the promise of emotional security is elusive. Perhaps this is why you keep returning to the place where it is supposed to be, hoping it will be there this time.

Keep in mind that these messages are not necessarily verbal. You can receive them from her actions as well as her words; by her presence as well as her absence.

Moon in Taurus:

Your mother is patient to the point of stubbornness and can be very set in her ways. She taught you the security of a routine as well as the value of money and possessions. She likes the pleasures of life and may have taught you to enjoy yourself by relaxing and taking it easy. Your moods are slow to surface, but are strong. You are emotionally tenacious, which makes it hard to forgive or forget. Your emotional security need is fulfilled through money, a routine and the basics of life.

Moon in 9th house:

Your mother said your emotional security need can be fulfilled by living according to your principles, which can be a reflection of hers, as she, too, was a person of principle. Her message is to keep your mind open to all ideas and live according to God's laws. She may have encouraged you to travel and pursue higher education. Your philosophy can include self-protectiveness and nurturing, and will change during your lifetime. When upset, you can find peace through communion with God. Your true freedom comes from letting go of your emotional attachment to old belief systems and pursuing your dream.

Moon in soft aspect to Mercury:

Your mother is able to express herself clearly, and there is good communication between the two of you. This extends to communication with all women and the public in general. There is harmony between your conscious and subconscious minds, giving you the ability to articulate your thoughts well.

Moon in soft aspect to Venus:

Your mother is loving and giving, and there is a beautiful bond of love between the two of you. You, in turn, are loving and giving. You attract fulfilling relationships and friends who care about you.

Moon in soft aspect to Mars:

You and your mother deal directly and forthrightly with each other. She taught you to channel your energies positively without wasting them. As a result, you are able to get things done quickly and easily. You have a good rapport with both men and women. You function well in competitive situations.

Moon in soft aspect to Saturn:

You respect your mother and older people in general. Your mother is strong and channels her emotions constructively. You are both willing to do whatever is necessary to get the job done. She has a good rapport with her family. She imbued you with a strong sense of responsibility and leadership, as well as the ability to get along with authority figures.

Moon in hard aspect to Uranus:

Your mother is unpredictable and you never know what to expect of her. She taught you to rebel. You both want freedom. As a result, relationships can end suddenly and unexpectedly. You attract self-willed, erratic people to you.

Moon in hard aspect to Neptune:

You do not see your mother clearly. Either she is so wonderful that you feel you'll never live up to her example, or she relinquished her responsibilities, leaving you to create your own maternal concept. She may have avoided reality through drugs, alcohol, food, sleep, etc. There is a great deal of wishful thinking on your part in connection with your mother. As a result of this, you can be vulnerable to people who deceive you if you ignore reality.

Moon in soft aspect to North and South Nodes:

Your intuition and emotions are well-balanced and help you learn the lessons your mother is here to teach you. The good rapport you had with women in past lives helps you in this one.


Saturn is reality and often, restriction. In the natal chart, it can represent your mother, father, grandparents, family ---anyone who imposes a restrictive influence on your life and tries to teach you reality through discipline.

Saturn in Pisces:

Fears and doubts cloud the dreams of the authority figures in your life. They may have passed their insecurities along to you, which can lead to a defeatist attitude and/or martyrdom.

Saturn in 7th house:

The authority figures in your life gave you the message that while partnership involves restriction, it is your responsibility to be married. The hidden message is that you are to be married to them. As a result, you may, unknowingly, see your mate as an authority figure and feel restricted and confined in your marriage.

Saturn in soft aspect to Moon:

You feel secure with the authority figures in your life. They got along, which taught you to get along with older people. You care and accept your responsibility without feeling burdened by obligation.

Saturn in hard aspect to Mercury:

The authority figures in your life have curtailed your thinking. You think you're being realistic when, in fact, you're being negative. The fear that something may go wrong has you looking for it. As a result, you see flaws. This is what the authority figures in your life taught you to do. At times, the fear of what you might see can prevent your looking. Ultimately you do look because you want to be prepared for the worst.

Saturn in hard aspect to Venus:

You never felt loved by the authority figures in your life, so you are not programmed to give love or receive it. Because your authority figures cannot be happy, they do not want you to be, either. As a result, there is a cloud of sadness which colors every happy occasion in your life--if you're happy, you have to be unhappy. They also gave you the message that love involves hurt, responsibility, and possibly loss. As a result, any time love comes close, you sabotage it and push it away.

Saturn in soft aspect to Mars:

The authority figures in your life taught you to be brave and strong. You can take direction as well as lead, which gives you a good rapport with others. You do not fear leadership and are not too important to take care of the small details. You are disciplined and hard-working. Your energies are well-directed.

Saturn in hard aspect to North and South Nodes:

Your fear of being restricted by authority figures comes from past lives and affects you in this one. Fear can restrict the attainment of success. Power must be handled wisely in this lifetime.


Pluto is another indicator of your mother's ---and sometimes your grandmother's---message. Pluto represents total change, control, and transmutation. It is the all-or-nothing planet. Pluto deals with all the mysteries of life: life itself, where it originates, where it goes when it leaves this plane. Pluto and the aspects it makes in your chart describe your mother's message about and your attitude towards sex.

Pluto's house placement indicates where there can be a power play with your mother, where you will both try to dominate and control, and where you can bring about a total transformation. You control because you don't trust. You don't trust the people who rule the house in which Pluto falls.

While Pluto represents your mother's message, it can also represent your grandmother's. Use whichever word applies to you.

Pluto in 10th house:

Your mother's message is to be in control in your career and be a powerful authority figure. You have a magnetic, compelling public image which she tries to dominate either by riding your coattails or competing with you for the limelight. You do not trust her. You want to dethrone her and assume leadership yourself. You can do so.

Pluto in soft aspect to Sun:

Good psychic and emotional bonds between your parents at the time of your birth gives you a positive role model. They taught you to assume command without abusing power. They taught you to get along with those in authority as well as those who follow your lead. You can be a pioneer. You are magnetic and psychic, and get along well with both men and women.

Pluto in hard aspect to Uranus:

You rebel against any attempts to restrict your free will. This message was given to you by your mother. Your psychic ability is strong, but you are suspicious. This can cloud your perception. At times, you can go to extremes in your need for independence.


The fourth house relates to home, family and your deepest emotional security needs. It describes the parent to whom you look for the fulfillment of these needs. Traditional astrology gives the mother rulership over this house because she has been the nurturing parent, the one who stayed home and cared for the family. Today, though, mother often pursues a career, and it is father who provides the emotional security.

The tenth house rules your career, your public image and the authority figure(s) in your life. It is your father who teaches you how to get along in the world outside the home. As such, the tenth house traditionally relates to him.

There are no set rules as to which parent rules which house. Sometimes one parent fulfills both roles. Other times the parents reverse roles. Each chart must be analyzed individually to determine which parent rules the fourth and which rules the tenth.

The relationship between the fourth and tenth is important because your home, family and the security they give you determine how you will do outside the home. If you don't get what you need from one parent, you may turn to the other, who may or may not be able to fulfill your needs. Lack of emotional security in the home can lead to compensation in the career. The career, then, can become a parent replacement.

The signs on the cusps of the fourth and tenth houses add another dimension to understanding your parents. When trying to determine which house is which parent, it is helpful to exaggerate the descriptions enough to allow yourself to be able to make a distinction between the two.

Scorpio on 4th Cusp:

This parent's message is to work at something lucrative. He/she is stubborn, indulgent, possessive and needs a routine.

Taurus on 10th Cusp:

This parent is secretive and controls the family through manipulation.

Pluto in 10th house:

Your mother is the out-front parent and rules this house, unless Pluto describes your grandmother, or unless the Sun or Saturn are here, indicating your father's---and possibly you grandfather's---influence as well. Your mother's message is to be in control in your career and be a powerful authority figure. She tries to dominate your public image either by riding your coattails or competing with you for the limelight. You do not trust her. You want to dethrone her and assume leadership yourself. You can do so, for there can be a reversal of roles between the two of you. You have a magnetic, compelling public image which can assist you to totally change your career at some point in life.


The signs represent principles to be learned. The house cusp on which a sign falls tells us the area of life in which that principle will be learned. Usually, the principle manifests in more than one area of life, since the ruler, or ROVING DELEGATE of that sign, carries the message to another house.

It makes no difference what sign falls on the cusp in question. We simply link the sign with its ruler's house position. For example, with Virgo on the fourth and Mercury in the eleventh, the ruler of the fourth is in the eleventh. The same thing is true if Taurus is on the fourth and Venus is in the eleventh. The same concept applies in each case.

The house in which the fourth or tenth house ruler falls gives us more information regarding that parent's messages.

Ruler of 4th house in 10th:

This parent either assumed both parental roles or, if other chart indications bear this out, reversed roles with the tenth-house parent. The message is to find your emotional security with either the tenth-house parent or in your career.

Ruler of 10th house in 7th:

The authority figure in your life acts like your equal. This parent can influence your spouse and/or choice of spouse. You may marry someone who reminds you of him or her.


Now that you've looked at your programming, you may be wondering if it will control you forever or if there is something you can do to change it, to move past it. There is. You can release it and yourself to God in complete faith and trust and just BE. When you come from BEING, you are coming from unconditional love. You see beauty everywhere. You are one with the whole and know that you are protected and loved.
