3 planets in fire Sun/Mercury Aries, Saturn Sagittarius, 3 planets in air Moon/Mars Aquarius, Jupiter Libra, 1 planet in water Venus Pisces, no planets in earth.

So focus is in fire (energy, enthusiasm) and air (reason, objectivity) Venus exalted in Pisces, naturally wet, does a good job of compensating in water (emotions) and allows for emotional connection with others and understanding of own emotions, particularly through relationships and creative pursuits. Real deficit is in earth (grounded, practicality) real tendency to get caught up in enthusiasm and in thoughts, too much in head, lack of grounding is problem, note Saturn is retrograde, problem at roots.

Sun (basic personality) & Mercury (thought, reason) retrograde in Aries, basic orientation is to constant forward motion, loves change and novelty, solution to problem is to attack it, change something, restless, can't sit still, lots of energy, enthusiasm, but this can burn out. Strong, courageous, self centered, proud to the point of arrogance, constantly changing mind, really need to slow down and think things through but often don't, judgment is affected by over enthusiasm.

Moon(emotions) & Mars (drive, temper) in Aquarius sociable, but solitary, unusual, very independent, a rebel, deep thinking, aware, can be both progressive and traditional, idealistic and focused on power, scientific, philanthropic, loyal. Trouble at times getting along in groups, with superiors or subordinates, problems with emotional distance and lack of emotional connection. Mars is weak but not afflicted, so generally good tempered, can get angry if pushed too far, problems with fatigue, lack of energy

Leo rising, rising sign is how world sees you and how you relate to the world, emphasizes fire signs, so energy, enthusiasm, strong, brave, noble, but also focused around self, stubborn, aggressive, dominating at times.

Venus (friendships, relationships, creativity) Pisces, focus for emotions, as noted is in relationships and in creativity, Pisces gives great empathy and sensitivity, awareness and intuition, artistic, imagination, poetic, compassion, deep mystic potential, can be excessively romantic, problems with lack of emotional boundaries, fantasy,

Jupiter (group social relations, judgment, finances) Libra, fair, reasonable, objective, capable of diplomacy, problems with changing or not being able to make up mind, lapses in judgment, lack of decisiveness at times.

Saturn (judgment, longevity, grounding) Sagittarius retrograde, emphasizes problems with grounding, good for energy and enthusiasm, but lapses in judgment.

Strong magical potential, spiritual is key part of life and personality, ties all other parts of personality together, energy, enthusiasm, capacity for spiritual leadership, ability to lead and inspire others. Problems with overenthusiasm, lack of judgment at times. Agrippa says Mars ruling the 9th, the person rules the spirits, indications of talent for ceremonial magic and invocation.

Magical path involves deep esoteric wisdom, always changing and refining magical path and practices, may have trouble sticking to one path long enough for mastery. Have drive, enthusiasm and will for magic and spiritual practices, but loves novelty, gives up too easily or enthusiasm lags. Need to overcome stop and start approach to magic and magical work. Strong divinatory sense, talent for prediction, intuitive knowledge, need to trust intuition and be able to separate it from surface knowledge and strong emotion. Spiritual life involves idealism, activism and independence of thought and action, service to others and to humanity.

Interest in and talent for alternative spirituality, mystic union with divine, strong emotional connection and sympathy for others, compassion and empathy, love of arts, music, literature, problems with being distracted from spiritual life by focus on pleasure or on own selfish interests, again very changeable in spiritual path and spiritual practices, may have difficulty focusing and mastering particular areas.

Not many secret enemies, who are not that powerful, some problems with malefic spiritual attack from open enemies and from romantic partners/spouses. Some problems with depression and negative emotions, stress, anxiety, especially if over tired, generally enthused but can get depressed if idealism thwarted or plans don't work as hoped. Life is full of sudden, unexpected events, and sudden changes. Need to be ready for lots of change.


If planets are dignified in your chart, this indicates that you already have a strong, positive relationship with the planet and you can use talismans or invocation. Planet is unafflicted, also fine for talismans and invocation. Afflicted planet, planetary charity is always fine, talismans can be unpredictable, invocation less problematic, but a good idea to do divination before using talisman or invocation for afflicted planets. Planetary charity fine for all planets.
