***** Chapter 1 *****
Your individuality. Your personality.
Your emotional needs. Your mentality.

To find the ideal profession, you have to know yourself first. There are activities you are suited for according to your nature, and others you are not. Your ideal occupation should favor the expression of your individuality (Sun) and your personality (Rising Sign), satisfy your emotional needs (Moon) and permit the development of your intellect (Mercury).


You were born under the sign of PISCES and your ruling planets are Neptune and Jupiter, which endows you with great kindness, sensibility and mysticism.

Your Sun sign is MUTABLE and this will impel you to function as a COMMUNICATOR, either in thought or action. You won't feel comfortable in a leadership position, but rather in a subordinate position or service.

Pisces is a WATER sign which makes you receptive and intense. The success of your projects depends almost exclusively on your emotional state. You need to feel that others need you and that you offer a useful service.

You are romantic, idealistic and obliging. Your great sensibility leads you to feel sorry for the underprivileged and you are always willing to help and to sacrifice yourself for others. Your aspirations in life are more geared toward accomplishments in the emotional area than in the material. You are very intuitive and perceive everything that occurs around you. You will be sought out by your friends or family for the moral support you offer, which could bring a lot of tension because you tend to become too involved with their problems.

You express much affection and feeling for everyone. You enjoy nature, animals, art, and especially music. Your great artistic abilities will help you to channel your inspiration. You are very idealistic and people rarely see you as you are, which may cause you to suffer certain deceptions.

You were born to serve, to help, to collaborate, to understand and to cure. Your mission is to teach others to act from the heart and to be concerned. You will excel in humanitarian and artistic activities, in those of service and in everything where you can develop your sensibility, compassion and intuition.

To evolve, your spirit needs to learn to be more realistic, practical and concrete. You will have to become less fearful and allow yourself to integrate with life in all its aspects. You will have to avoid procrastination, laziness, shyness, and your tendency to evade problems which could easily lead you to take up some kind of vice. You will have to learn to organize and to manage your resources to avoid possible economic chaos. You are easily influenced and the success of your objectives depends to a large extent on the support that you receive. You have to overcome tendencies to excessive looking for approval or adopting the attitude of a victim, and assume your responsibilities.


Others see you as a strong, decisive and proud person. You convey great personal assurance and are the center of attraction wherever you appear. You express yourself very dramatically with a degree of exaggeration, but also show a great sense of humor and enthusiasm. You are likely to develop your creative and artistic talents in all directions and also have a great gift for seduction.

You are congenial, happy and spontaneous, which allows you to communicate and socialize with ease. In spite of this, you are very selective with the company you keep. You have authority and the ability to direct others. If you have a weaker Sun sign, this ascendant will be very fortunate for you. Otherwise it will increase your inflexibility, obstinacy and restlessness.

The profession you choose will have to permit you to be the boss, to have the power to make your own decisions, to do your job without pressure or control, and it definitely has to bring you in touch with the public; avoid subordinate positions or jobs where you would be unable to show your creativity.


Your emotions are deep, stable and very lasting. Your feelings toward someone can be for life, which makes you very loyal and confident, but at the same time very possessive. You seek safety and protection in your emotional world. You are very cautious when you meet someone and over time will open your heart little by little. If you don't receive the stable emotional response you need, you could become obsessed with the material world and may develop a strong desire for possession that will lead you to buy things and to accumulate money.

Thanks to your emotional control, you have the ability to solve problems. You are not easily stunned and prefer to do nothing until you analyze the situation. Your pace is likely to be slower than that of others. You gradually react to situations and never act suddenly. Little by little, you assimilate ideas and things that hamper you. You are well prepared and your ideas are fixed. Once you have made up your mind, it is difficult for you to change your original opinions. You also are very creative, which will allow you to do very well in any artistic endeavor.

Subconsciously, you have a strong fear of change. In previous lives you may have accumulated goods, resulting in your difficulty to act with indifference today. You may still be tied to those things or persons that wronged you or limited your freedom. You may have experienced abandonment and poverty that you do not want to repeat. You probably haven't learned yet to rely on the law of the Universe and the scope of your future economic safety. You have to avoid your "poverty consciousness", obsession, meanness or stinginess, and to develop more inner security, relying on your own resources and productivity, and fundamentally, you have to learn to possess with indifference.

The profession you choose will have to satisfy your emotional need to find stability, harmony, continuity, future security and the possibility of showing your degree of productivity and artistic expression.

YOUR MENTALITY: Mercury in Pisces

You have a very imaginative and receptive mind. Your strong intuition allows you to know what others are feeling or thinking before even one word is spoken. Your abundance of fantasies and inspiration make you suited for literary or artistic jobs, but this type of work could increase your tendency to escape reality. Many times you will prefer to live in your inner magic world, trying to flee from the crudity of the real world. You could have some trouble expressing your ideas clearly. Your mind is far from logical and rational; most of the time it is impelled by your emotions.

Your way of communicating is variable, and you will only be open with those you are really close to emotionally. Your inability to concentrate and your inconstancy could cause problems with your studies, but if you receive the emotional support you need, you fulfill all your responsibilities. You are easily influenced by people and it is difficult for you to be objective with your opinions. You are very fond of psychology as well as nature and are likely to have problems with mathematics.

***** Chapter 2 *****
Your abilities and your emotions, inhibitions and strengths.
Hidden talents or challenges, Karma.

The location of the planets in the houses and the relationship between them can increase or decrease their power. Aspects of the Sun are related to our strength and those of the Moon affect the emotional world and are expressed on a subconscious level.

    Aspects that affect your INDIVIDUALITY:

Sun in 8th house:

Your success is related to the possessions and financial administration of other people, or making investments or transactions with others. Very perceptive and intuitive, you also may be interested in the hidden sciences and the mysteries of life, which may incline you to investigate. You have to learn to rely on your instincts and impressions.

Throughout your life you are likely to receive legacies that will benefit your personal estate; these could come through an inheritance or through marriage.

Sun Square Jupiter:

You tend to be a bit lazy and are fond of comfort. Your optimism could be exaggerated and create the impression that everything will be solved magically. You have to resist self-indulgence and the tendency to be selfish. You are likely to assume that people will make way for you and you have little consideration for others.

You need to learn to place limits on your objectives and ideas in general, because you tend to see only the big picture and underestimate the finer details of everything.

    Aspects that affect your EMOTIONS:

Moon in 9th house:

You have great ability to elaborate on abstract ideas as well as conventional concepts. Your curiosity and quest for knowledge will cause you to investigate, meet people of different cultures and travel to remote and strange places. You are a natural teacher and like to transmit knowledge. An educator by nature, no matter what field you become involved with you find it easy to communicate.

Moon Trine Mars:

You undertake your endeavors with great enthusiasm and your energy seems to be contagious. You are constructive, decisive and make your decisions rapidly. Others will rely on you and seek your support. You tend to have an abundance of physical energy which makes you qualified for activities that require physical effort.

Moon Sextile Mercury:

You have a rapid, imaginative, intelligent and retentive mind. If your customary work is related to some intellectual pursuit, you will be very successful. Otherwise you will have to seek a way of using your mental abilities by studying or writing, etc. This astrological influence could bring many trips and the possibility of communicating fluently with others. You have much common sense and your emotions are not likely to obstruct your reasoning.

Moon Sextile Venus:

You are likely to have many friendships and will be very popular with others. You can easily relate to others and show great sensitivity in your dealings, which lets you get along well with everyone and allows you to make friends easily. You also have good taste and are very interested in artistic subjects.

Moon Sextile Saturn:

You are very serious and confident, which is to your advantage and will allow you to occupy important positions in your life. You are able to assume many responsibilities without getting overwhelmed by them. You can excel in executive and administrative posts. Having great emotional control, you don't let your feelings get the best of you nor do you make rushed decisions. You are a traditionalist and observe your own principles. This configuration augurs great success in the material world.

HIDDEN TALENTS: Cancer on 12th house cusp

You have to learn to express your emotions freely. Although in general you are extroverted, you also may have some inner inhibitions that you try to hide with friendliness or sociableness. It would be wise to recollect some of your childhood experiences, because they could impel you to act impulsively. You are more confident showing authority and aggressiveness than affection and passivity. You must learn to combine your priorities harmoniously. Often your feelings may be hurt by thoughtless remarks of others, due to the lack of sensitivity and sensibility.

This influence could bring serious family problems, animosity between members of the family, difficulties in establishing yourself firmly in a place or in making real estate investments, and also a bad reputation.

***** Chapter 3 *****
Expansion (Jupiter) and retraction (Saturn).
To give and to receive.

EXPANSION: Jupiter in Capricorn

Your sense of expansion tends to be limited by your view of reality. You have to expand your own mental limits and develop a more positive attitude toward the abundance of the universe. You put all of your ideas into practice and always want to see concrete results. You are very realistic and have a positive attitude toward work and action. You need to feel that you achieve things little by little. You have a great sense of responsibility and can become quite hard on yourself when you make a mistake. You also will have to learn to be more flexible and tolerant toward the weakness of others. Your material success will be expressed to the extent to which you occupy positions of authority and responsibility.

Jupiter in 5th house:

You have a tendency to do things in a big way and at times can go to extremes. Sports, creative activities and romances are some of your interests. You can be lucky in speculation, risky investments and gambling. Your material expansion is related to the expression of your creative talents and to your confident and optimistic attitude in life.

Jupiter Square Sun:

You have a tendency to excesses and exaggeration and don't seem to know your own limits. Because of this, you may disregard important details or have difficulty planning the achievement of your goals. You have to learn to be more orderly, to concentrate your energy on clear and specific goals and to avoid laziness, self-indulgence, illegalities and the tendency to take the easy way out.

Jupiter Trine Neptune:

You are strongly spiritual and religious, and you like to help others. You are very intuitive and strongly attracted to the mystical and metaphysics. You would do well in careers involving education, social work or artistic creativity. You are very noble and always work toward your spiritual evolution.

RETRACTION: Saturn in Pisces

The inhibition principle affects your ability to assume responsibilities and to accept reality as it is. You are very imaginative, tend to live in the past and may have difficulties dealing with the present. You have great emotional understanding and humility and are willing to work with and for the underdog or those who are friendless. You need quiet and solitude to discover your abilities and would do well in the fields of literature, investigation or metaphysics. You take life too seriously and react emotionally to everything. It is important for you to practice emotional detachment, to face life more realistically, and to overcome your inner fears that could lead you to escape your responsibilities.

Saturn in 7th house:

You can perform better working with others than alone, however, your principal frustration will be the difficulty in finding a perfect associate. This placement hinders, delays or frustrates any kind of association and could bring losses. You have to learn to rely on your own authority and to work independently; if you find an associate, try to become aware with whom you are dealing. Subconsciously, you recall a paternal figure and seek the protection from older people, and this could make you rely more on them than you need to. You are responsible and may direct your desire to achieve into areas involving the public. You transmit an image of confidence and maturity to others.

Saturn Conjunct Mercury:

Your are sober, logical, methodical, careful and responsible. You are a good listener, never make frivolous comments, and prefer to work alone. Your decisions will be firm and imposed with great authority. You tend to be pessimistic, are never satisfied with your achievements or aspirations, and may get depressed easily. You are very serious and give the impression of being older than you really are. You are interested in adult subjects and act deliberately and slowly. Your pleasures primarily include family and traditional things. You need to communicate more with others and will also have to learn to relax and loosen up more, leaving aside the fear of making mistakes.

Saturn Conjunct Venus:

You are serious and may find it difficult to express your feelings. You tend to have a fear of poverty and an inner austerity or lack of ideas. You have to increase your sense of enjoyment and learn that working with love, with something you really like, will bring much more success. You are very good at mathematics and finances. You are a hard worker and are protective of the dignity of the family. You will have to learn to be more spontaneous and demonstrative to secure your romantic as well as monetary future.

Saturn Sextile Moon:

Your strong emotional control allows you to make good decisions. But your practical sense could restrict your imagination; you don't like to be evasive or make plans without foundation. Your ambitions are very concrete and you clearly visualize each goal that you set for yourself. You arouse a feeling of confidence and loyalty in people that will make you popular. You are likely to have a successful social life and your relationships will help you to attain higher positions.

Saturn Sextile Mars:

You have the ability to direct your energies in an organized and disciplined way; you know when to run and when to stay. Your constructive energy allows you to excel in military or engineering fields. You are noble, sincere and respectful of other people's rights. You look out for your family and friends, and are very loyal in your feelings.

Success in life depends to a great extent on the balance between giving and receiving, expanding and retracting. Even dwelling on the one and only failure you may have had is like not attempting anything.
