A Young Girl Feeding Birds In Winter Charubel

This appears a bloody degree. Those who may have this degree ascending
are advised to do all in their power to fortify the soul, and pray to
God for help and guidance.
Symbol: A man equipped for, a rough journey, belted and armed.
This degree signifies one of adventurous nature, food of discovery and
of travel. A pioneer In what ever field of labor he may undertake to
work in; one. who will open up new roads of knowledge and research;
active, aggressive, bold and fearless; one who will travel into distant
countries and gain applause for his discoveries. It is a degree of

mystics. The native is very resourceful, but sometimes self-centered or
unscrupulous. If squared by planets at about l6-l7degree Cancer,

Few moral scruples, if any at all. An original mind, inexhaustible in
resources, never at a loss.
An extremely active and daring temper with a pioneer’s or an
adventurer’s craving inquisitiveness. A life of travel,
scientific discoveries, perhaps of more or less reckless adventures.
There will be some renown and possibly a violent death.
The native ought to remember Dante’s warning (Inf. 26,
You were not born to vegetate like beasts, but to follow the
path of truth and virtue.
A blacksmith hammering a piece of red-hot iron on an anvil.
Denotes a determined worker, vigorous in the fight against

strong a spirit, this native can never be mean. Baseness does not find
a place in his nature. He loathes idleness, for energy, pain, and

think we must try look beyond to what influence lurks here which
individuals have not found a way to use constructively. Perhaps a
diamond in the rough is to be uncovered here. I think we would have to
grant in the light of experience noted heretofore that whatever
positive influence there is still to be uncovered. Aries is a
pioneering sign and this is a degree to be pioneered. This is the
exaltation point of the Sun and as such it may represent a blinding
light falling on the new born soul seeking cover or darkness. It must
also be recognized that good aspects and harmonious influences tend to
bring out the best of the worst influences. Only one authority suggests
that the influence is thoughtful and unselfish in the evolved types. As
the exaltation point of the Sun there must be much promise from new
beginnings at this point.

School Grounds Filled With Boys And Girls In Gymnasium Suits
Symbol: A man of stout make, good proportions round rosy features,
looking very merry, dancing grotesquely.
Denotes one who lives to eat and enjoy himself; never troubles his mind
with cares seldom thinks of the future by way of providing for the
same; the present in his all; his creed is Let me eat, drink and be
merry, for to-morrow I may be dead and ‘done for’.
Symbol: A man riding at high speed upon a well-conditioned horse.
This denotes one who has a taste for and ability in the management of
horses, and to whom the delight of horsemanship will not be less than
those of hazard and adventure. He will lead a romantic life, will
travel afar, and undertake many hardy exploits. His occupation may
bring him largely into touch with foreign people and strange lands, and
either he will be an importer of foreign wares, an explorer, or an
archaeologist. Should he incline to the law he will make great progress
therein, and honors will attend his efforts on all occasions. In
scholastic work also he finds his prevailing passion fully satisfied
for in the taming and bridling of the untrained mind and the right
directing of its powers he will prove himself not less successful than
capable and zealous. It is a degree of INSTRUCTION.
Among the hundreds of charts used, I found no famous, or notorious,
people with planets here.
Symbol: A man riding a reinless horse.
The symbol is divalent. It may imply that the rider control the horse
without the help of material means, acting, as it were, magically
through sheer will power; and it may mean as well that this soul is
carried off by a subhuman energy over which consciousness has no power.
The horse is usually taken to mean the three lower vehicles of man, and
the vehicle par excellence is certainly the physical body, its
unbridledness being a transparent token of unleashed lustfulness.
One may wonder how the two divergent constructions can be brought to an
agreement, but this is hardly necessary as the stirs will leave place
for only one. Moreover, one and the same person is not at all unlikely
to hold an irresistible sway over others while at the same time being
ruled and led by lust. The answer, as usual, must be sought in the
whole of the chart.
Should the pattern be generally good, grant a strong character without
barring good luck, and show favorable aspects of Jupiter and the Sun,
the way then would be open to highest distinctions for the native.
At the outside, this degree would produce the Master, the man of God,
the Great Initiate, the Anointed One. In any event, there will be
independence, faraway travels, and such features as to make life appear
like a novel to others.
In unlucky themes, great undertakings imply dangers corresponding to
the daring; short of a lightning-like intuition, luck, or the support
of long experience any enterprise will come to grief. Where other
pointers of sensuality concur, there will be a carefree epicureanism
forgetful of the morrow; concurrence of sportsmanship will lead to
horse racing or riding.
Symbol: A number of books floating near a coast land rich in vegetation
and floral charm, with beautiful grottos rising from the blue sea.
Denotes one, artistic and nature-loving, who has a rapturous
appreciation for the grandeur of creation and endeavors by some
media—art, letters, or song—to express it. He has a

soul. It is a symbol of Expression.
Intuitive, artistic and sensitive yet very practical. He matures his
plans before attempting their execution.
This native is too soft for the difficulties he faces. There may be
some protection in passive resistance but he is not sufficiently
dedicated to anything to make any real impression. His overanxious
desire please draws a certain lack of respect. He may be the type to
enjoy his suffering and the sympathy it brings him. If the other parts
of the chart show sufficient strength to ward off such attacks as this
degree attracts he may show of the basic Capricorn nature.
The degree of the land-baron - capable of directing man a beast,
captaining the biggest industries and the largest farms. A natural
magic and earthy fortitude of Taurus/Capricorn - a solid character.

Denotes one poetical, intense, conservative, imaginative, idealistic,
and artistic, one for whom simple beauty has a lasting and long appeal.
His thoughts are above the narrow limits of form, creed, and custom,
and his actions are marked by gentleness and feeling. The scientific
vein in his nature is nurtured with the blood of Uranian science, and
he is held but little to the wilder theories of some modern
materialistic speculations. Whatever he handles must be dainty, sweet,
and artistic. He loves children, flowers, the country, and all those
things which lend grace and charm to earth life. It is a symbol of
Loving beauty and grandeur and all that adds grace and charm to life.
A basic deceptive quality here contributes to theatrical ability.
Usually this deception is motivated an enjoyment of playing games
rather than being malicious. But if distorted by frustration and there
are problems very difficult for him to solve his traits could become
treacherous. For the most part he is the jovial clown, possible to pin
down to anything serious most especially anything requiring a
commitment on his part. He usually takes a position of a playful
happy-go-lucky life of the character. He may also play with sarcasm and
sphinx-like innuendos calculated to raise doubts without making his
points crystal clear but leaving room for interpretations. The basic
Scorpio nature is secretive and here it reaches the level of developed
skill to hide his real nature even though he has nothing but his
superior ability to hide. He still feels safer playing a part and
leaving his associates to guess at what he is really like.
Companionship plays a very necessary part in his routine. People really
are his workshop and his great joy is keeping other people guessing.
Earthy Capricorn adds form to fluid Scorpio, conferring business

Intoxication of the mind, alcoholic drunkenness, an orgiastic temper in

him and attempts from the two worlds will be made to draw him from his
deeper thoughts to the frivolity, folly, and transitory joys of earth.
Many times will he be shaken, but his power is too great for sensual

those who are able may drink. It is a symbol of Spiritual Struggles.
Delving into the occult lore of other and countries, be finds peace and
a solution to many of the miseries endured by other who interest
themselves in transitory pleasures only.
A depressed mentality subject to accidents and a fatalistic approach to
life sums up this individual. The burdens here do seem difficult to
bear and he must look to other areas of the chart for support and
strength to handle what is dealt out by this degree. There is a good
judgment and an accurate perception which is however wasted by
preoccupation with the evils of the world, which for the most part he
judges accurately. To the optimist, the glass is half full to the
pessimist, the glass is half empty. Both are right. This degree is very
unlike Sagittarius. generally.
Romantic, lofty, regal Leo outshines cold, watery Pisces to make an

all imitate their neighbors and counterfeit them strikingly. Should the

A bad nativity may pervert art into mummery and the harmless jokes into
dirty tricks. The nimble person, mastering his own body with matchless
skill, may turn into a clown or be warped into a quacksalver. Anyhow,
it ought to be borne in mind that a soul nobler and deeper than
expected hides behind those outward striking and likable features. Few
will notice it.

This degree is given to excess and particularly subject to alcoholism
and various forms of intoxication. It gives a very independent and
stubborn nature. There may be high aspirations along with gluttony and
over optimism. It seems to stimulate a desire for unrealizable goals.
As a result, he works in a steady manner to achieve what appears to be
impossible. Nevertheless, the goal continues to haunt him and continues
to be part of his awareness. If the rest of the chart contributes other
qualities necessary for success this native might not succumb to the
excesses which tempt him.
Double fire influence of Leo/Sagittarius produce idealism, love of
liberty, clear-sightedness, and willfulness-but also makes a tyrant

comes by it without effort. In the midst of want and privation he will
keep a hopeful countenance and good heart. It cannot be said that he
will do much good to others, yet he will do no intentional harm, and
his good spirits will cheer others, who else might despond too easily.

A powerful degree. Sometimes a bit materialistic for Sagittarius. An
unusually intelligent and capable person.
Symbol: Two men playing dice
The native will tend to have all his eggs in one basket, and may risk
everything on one throw when his very life is at stake. If he wins,
success or even glory is his; in case of defeat there is no further
chance, as he has burned his bridges. Usually Fortune will smile upon
such confidence in her favors, though this will not always be the case.
The nativity taken as a whole must point out whether we are confronted
with a great man’s deliberately planned gamble, or with a
operator’s or betting addict’s random shot; we
hardly need say that the
latter is more frequent. Therefore, unless well aspected elsewhere, the
native cannot rely exclusively on the blind Goddess’ smile to
his accounts, and he will risk failure at the slightest wink of ominous
stars. He then will have to put up with the lowest jobs and bear the
humblest fatigues. Yet even in this case his buoyant cheerfulness will
stay untarnished and the faith in his own star unshaken; this
merriness may even spread around him like wildfire, and he will take a
hand-to-mouth existence in his stride, waiting for Fortune’s

Symbol: Draught horse pulling a load of chains up a hill, at the top of
which is a great revolving wheel.
Denotes one who is limited, edged in, bound. and restricted, whose way
is paved with difficulties which threaten and torment. He is exposed to
dangers until after his seventh year, and if these are passed he is
faced with a narrow way. He might remember the old Talmudic maxim,
Those whom God loves He oppresses with suffering, and endeavor to grasp
the purpose of his life. It is a symbol of Oppression.
Early struggles. Success depends upon the choice of friends as there is
an ever present struggle between idealism and animalism.
A very quiet and materialistic degree for this sign. This native is
usually satisfied with a very quiet pursuit of the good things of life
which often c in generous proportions without the gambling excitement
of most Sagittarius natives. He often turns enemies into friends by his
quiet unruffled manner. He is, for the part, devoted to domestic joys
of a rather routine job with little expectation of advancement. He
takes a very mild philosophical approach to life, satisfied
undisturbed and left alone. He loves people; he just hates to be
interfered with in a way that disturbs his privacy.
Heavyweight Capricorn adds serious notes and responsibility, perhaps
stealing away resourcefulness and normal pluckiness of forward - headed
Sagittarius. Contemplative - is capable of great concentration,
assimilation, and plan for a better future. Confidence and composure
brings success. Disturbingly optimistic; perhaps a loser in some
speculation for some reason or another. Win or lose, it’s a
optimist, always learning and looking ahead.
Power of expression in language; dancing (especially if Mars is there,
which gives strong legs. If Mars is weak it gives the desire to dance,

others to turn against them. They have a fantastic ability to talk

The secret of his success is his unshakable self-confidence supported
by a fiery will.

The native here is concerned with mastery, usually mastery over others
without first having gained mastery of himself. This degree grants much
ability to overcome all obstacles as well as other people. In most
cases there is too little compassion and straight forward honesty. The
native seems prone to gain by any means, fair or foul. He is
independent and extremely determined to reach the top of his goal. He
has been considered successful in the past when he gained mastery over
all he surveyed.
Today it is necessary for him to incorporate some of the advancement of
society in the art of give and take to find the recognition he craves.
Much depends on his circle of friends and what is demanded of him. In a
sense, this degree speaks for what those around him demand. He can and
will incorporate the qualities necessary to maintain his position. The
rest of the chart will also point the natural direction to which this

desires in the direction he wishes to go he will go in the direction
his environment demands.

This indicates one given to friendship and the delights of social
intercourse, and whose nature will find chief expression in the

they are animated by the best feelings none of his friends will ever
doubt. He will have many supporters and his confidences will be
esteemed by them. He may profitably be engaged in the instruction and
leading of others, whether as a teacher, director, overseer or officer,
and he will be one of those to whose instruction and advice men will
naturally incline. His fondness for pleasures however, may ruin his

will give masterfulness and the accessory prestige over others in more
or less refined utilitarian and earthly matters, tending toward
enjoyment, though not exclusively material; its supreme pleasure is
But, for all his good intentions, the native will bring little luck to
his devoted friends; however, unconsciously and against his own will,
he will lead them to sacrifice, which he himself will not escape, as
his inordinate and dissipated life will inflict a spell of ordeals and
mishaps upon him.
He is likely to get over it sooner or later. The pattern as a whole and
a careful study of directions and of Uranus’ transits will
have to show
whether the beginning or the end of his life will be marked by had luck.
Symbol: The Interior of a tent of a Roman military commander, in which
is a table set with abundance of food and drink in rich vessels of gold
Denotes one of good organizing and directing ability who works with a
purpose in his mind and an ideal at heart. He has a love of luxury and
good living, and as life advances he will be in a position to gratify
his desires. He is a good, generous friend, and gains esteem. He does
not allow personal comfort to affect the work he is called upon to do
nor to diminish his personal courage. It is a symbol of Accomplishment.
Purposeful and sympathetic but must guard against too luxurious living.
This native has a strong mystical, occult psychic orientation which
will either result in a highly developed spiritual being or in an
interest in psychic phenomena, secret societies, and perhaps black
magic. Ofcourse, there are also those in between. The intelligence is
limited only by other factors. He is usually quite fixed in his
opinions for Pisces. They can be quite determined in their demand for
justice. His sense of justice may win support. His logic is severe and
meticulously correct to extent of super-rational judgment. Although he
has mystical qualities, he is not gentle or understanding. It is as
though he were hard with himself and allows others no room to do less.
Often when an individual has sacrifice too much to arrive at what he
considers to be perfection he loses something of compassion and
understanding and must retrace his steps to once again align himself
companionship he needs from others. He is too dedicated to a goal he
does not fully understand but which he attempts to follow to the letter
of the law, if not the of the law.
Libra/Pisces influence imparts generosity, manners and beauty. Fond of
pleasure and romance. There’s a complementing Mercury
planning, communication and mediumistic skills, but must be careful not
to lead friends and family into unproductive schemes. Remember,
are not as blessed and their lack of skill and dependence (and
unattractiveness) may lead to unfulfilled promises. A good friend,
well-liked; a people person and help-mate. Career reflects this.
Renunciation; music; mediums and healers; fond of pleasure, including
food and drink; sometimes diffident or apologetic; asthma; right cuboid
Original, pioneering thoughts and actions. Active. Strives to develop
the talents, knowledge, and resources necessary to make his own
individual contribution to society. (TAU-3-ARI, AQU-12-CAP
Symbols for degree of Neptune
Two Lovebirds Sitting On A Fence And Singing Happily
Symbol: A beacon light on a high rock.
One with great intuition. Those having this degree should pay strict
attention to those impressions which the world calls foolish, but which
show the Divinity speaking through humanity.
Symbol: A ship in full sail upon a sunlit sea.
This is the symbol of one who will possess an enterprising and somewhat
adventurous spirit, such as will lead him into associations with others
remote from him in nature or in clime. He will show a catholic and
cosmopolitan spirit, a versatile and ambitious mind, and a benevolent
and sympathetic nature. If he should be induced to leave his country it
will be to form alliances that are productive of the greatest good to
himself and to others. If he should follow the mercantile life, he will
be fortunate therein. But whatever may be his calling, he will prosper
and gain to himself a position of affluence and distinction. It is a
degree of AFFLUENCE.
Symbol: “QUEER” (Probably some connection with
thyroid or pituitary glands.)
Sometimes eccentric, restless, impractical or fantastic.
Symbol: The Statue of Liberty (in the New York harbor)
An all-round open mind, an enterprising character, an ambitious and
adventurous spirit; the native’s country is the whole world,
feels at home everywhere. In his native country he will associate
happily with congenial cooperators and he will do excellent business
abroad, profitable both to himself and to others.
Fluent in speech and articulate in writing, possessed of a sharp
insight, pleasant and easy with everyone but far from submissive, the
native will be able to build himself up into a splendid financial
position if other stars lead him to trade or to other lucrative
callings. On the contrary, should he take to purely intellectual or
altogether spiritual activities, he would enjoy a transcendental
intuition enabling him to perceive the spiritual reality underlying
Symbol: A woman seated on an anchor, a rudder in her hand and an opened
book at her feet.
Denotes one who is guided through the many intricacies of life by a
faith which cannot be shaken, being born of a philosophy or
understanding which sinks deeply into a receptive nature. The mind is
broad and wide in its sympathies, and the native feels and knows the
reality of the way immortal, even though he may not be able to express
it in mere words. It is a symbol of Guidance.
One who lives and teaches that through faith alone can we overcome
This is not considered a good degree. Natives here usually have some
kind of curious and eccentric habit pattern There may be a connection
with thyroid or pituitary glands. Often they are restless and difficult
to settle down. The most consistent circumstance is some form of mishap
during middle life when the work is interrupted or stopped altogether
and some major crisis must be faced. He is subject to unforeseen
dangers and possibly shortened life span. The degree of Uranus and its
strength or weakness may reveal more of what this degree may mean for
Versatile, talkative Gemini lends its active rays to humanitarian
Aquarius. Cultured, open-minded, enterprising character and ambitious,
adventuresome sprit. At home anywhere and happily conducts trade with
almost anyone. Witty: good communicators, listeners. Social and
cooperative which will take them far in life. Good for short story
writers, journalists, critics - easy to listen to! Romances will be
many and varied, perhaps jealous. Follows current trends.

A Group Of Immigrants As They Fulfill The Requirements Of Entrance Into
The New Country
Symbol: A person at the bottom of a deep ravine, with lamp in hand
looking far something.
A mineralogist; a geologist; and one who will be fond of such
researches as lie within the earth.
Symbol: A human heart encircled with a band of iron and pierced by a
dagger with jeweled hilt.
Insecure affections, misplaced confidence, bitter resentment and
jealousy are the unhappy results of love divorced from discretion and a
good judgment. Such an one to whom this symbol applies will go through
life attended by a host of forlorn hopes, loving without power to evoke
response, acting by impulse unallied to reason, and in the end will
become cramped and misanthropic, the iron of selfish disappointment
eating into the soul. Danger of heart disease may be indicated, or what
is worse, the canker of jealousy may prove fatal. It is a degree of
Symbol: “RELIGION OR ABANDONMENT”
Frank, charitable and sympathetic, under favorable aspects. Under
adverse aspects, may be a revolutionary spirit who gives his life for
an unpopular cause. Jupiter here usually denotes a religious person,
Mercury skepticism. Several gamblers have Mercury here.
Symbol: Mortal row between two women
Blind and impulsive passionality, cruel disappointments, frenzied
jealousy, danger of murder committed in hot blood where the native
easily could be the victim if other astrological factors consistently
point at lack of violence and portend murder at the hands of a man. The
native woman would nearly always be wrong in confiding in someone and
is invariably wrong when she is in love. Lack of return will stow a
bitter resentment in her soul, which may find its outlet in bloodshed
or turn into sour misanthropy. In a man’s activity these and
omens may refer to him or to his woman.
This degree carries the hideous mark of jealousy and excessive
suspicion. Jealousy means mistrust of everyone and everything, hidden
watching, stealthily rummaging the beloved one’s papers,
lying in ambush to follow the eyes from afar, taking other people into
one’s confidence and ending in being doublecrossed by them,
one’s beloved and especially oneself.
Heart ailments are not unlikely. If not the mind, the nerves are
Symbol: A bee stinging a roaring lion.
Denotes one of sharp, stinging wit, of democratic feeling, and a fine
order of intellect, who is bound to gain distinction of some kind. He
will take a clear and extremely sensible view of things, and will be
able to gauge and construct. The note of his sarcasm is directed
against certain authority, and forces action when passivity seems
firmly fixed. It is a symbol of Stimulation.
Sarcastic, opposed to authority and resent interests. Create mental
vigor which often stings others to action. Inclines to art as a hobby.
The influence here is revolutionary. Natives of this degree run counter
to any established order. They have a certain sympathy for the whether
deserved or not. They seem not to suffer as some by being overly
sympathetic with individuals who take advantage of them. They are more
likely to enlist others in a violent revolution. It is difficult to say
what this degree would do in a society where there was not as much for
dissent as this native is able to find. He usually objects to elements
well deserving of objection. The causes establishes are usually valid
and needing attention by someone. Some of these natives will have the
mentality find more clever and non-violent means to effect these needed
changes. However, the temptation to violence is there and easy to
arouse. The rest of the chart must show further characteristics which
will round out and indicate both the strength and direction this degree
Strong Scorpio-Cancer influence-sixth and twelfth signs from
Sagittarius - promotes difficulties and self-undoing, and in the
self-involved Leo decant, says much about the pitfalls of this degree -
overly passionate, jealous, selfish, haughty - perhaps giving and
receiving physical harm. Errors in love. Probably good at writing
“cheating” love songs as it is attracted to those
type of situations,
leisure, and unfitting atmosphere. Heart troubles and heart aches.
Despite that, has abilities in science, research and math. Works behind
the scenes, although all too often is drawn into bad situations and
scandals, ruining its chances for success.
Science, mathematics, insanity, projecting and the arts; a military
degree, favorable; frank; charitable; sympathetic; afflicted; a
revolutionary spirit who gives his life for an unpopular cause;
appendicitis; left trochanter.
Highly intelligent. Scientific thinking. Original and innovative
mentality. Strives for clarity and precision. (CAP-2-VIR, AQU-3-LIB)

Let such an one ever look towards the south-east of the place of his

It denotes loneliness and indigence in life; one who will lead a
strange and outcast life, with few friends and those either unwilling
or unable to help him. It. seems to contain the idea of much traveling,
perhaps exile, and finally a lonely grave. It is a degree of
This degree may also denote gluttony. It is found in the charts of
bakers, along with Virgo, Pisces and Cancer, Capricorn. Waiters,
waitresses and others who work with food frequently have planets here.
Ball players, golfers and athletes often have this degree occupied and
it is sometimes found in the charts of Astrologers and Theosophists. It
has been referred to as a “Karmic Degree.”
The native is an uncommon being; whether above or below the average
will have to be left to other pointers to show. No doubt there is
something forceful about him, either his passions or his wishes or his
more or less noble aims.
In a way he is a solar being, as he stands alone, cannot count on
personal friendships, and his career tends to trace a parable. Where
most of the other features hint at success, the native is certainly
destined to lead and sway. In questions regarding the whole
or the masses, success awaits him.
Where other pointers do not help, he will be utterly poor and lonely,
an outcast, or worse, an outlaw heading for an obscure end, for exile
and perhaps even jail.
Whether a winner or a loser, he always will be an isolated, strange
Symbol: A man standing on a mountain gazing sadly on the valley below,
where some men are fighting for a bag of gold whilst a monkey is eating
their food. On his right is the spirit of Truth : on his left the
spirit of Error; seated at his feet is the spirit of Love; behind him,
holding on to his garment, is the spirit of Hale.
Denotes one who reaches a position of responsibility, power, and
influence, and seeks to find in man the spark which being agitated
blazes forth in glory, guiding by its perfect light. Here we have the
teacher who strives to lead men from the valley of darkness into the
light of understanding, but who himself is threatened by Error and
Hate, which if he permits to influence him will drag him from his
throne. But if he join his own great soul to Truth and Love, what
wonders may he not perform! It is a symbol of Intercession.
One who, seeing a light, expects others to follow. Let him be sure that
it is a true light or seeming friends will betray him.
Trial by fire seems indicated by this degree. The trials which
accompany this degree are calculated to perfect the soul, and have a
high record of success. Perhaps it is associated with karma; if so, it
is a karma from which the individual is ready and willing to learn. The
trials seem to be disassociated from anything the individual can be
seen to have logically caused by his actions. They seem to be acts of
fate. The individual seems in most cases capable of dealing with the
apparently unjust burden in a saintly manner, thereby incurring the
sympathy of onlookers. Perhaps it is the need for sympathy that makes
the native willing to suffer so patiently.
Double water influence of Cancer (square Aries) and Pisces (12th house
to Aries) signifies double troubles and challenges - marks this degree
as something special, often disliked and overweight.
Bakers; dietetics - food and drink; music (the beautiful); love of

cannot tell them a lie because they see through others. They are seldom
mistaken in their judgment of others; rheumatic fever; rheumatism;
frontal lobes (brain).
Takes the time to work neatly and accurately. Interested in nutrition
or other health-related fields. (VIR-6-VIR, TAU-2-TAU)

Denotes a gloomy and monotonous life; uneventful, and generally poor in
Symbol: An eagle carrying its prey in mid air.
This is the index of a mind that is given to extraordinary flights of
fancy, making of purely mundane things the substance of many and
prolonged cogitations and solitary musings. The nature is rather
isolated and misanthropic, while the mind is endowed with faculties of
no mean order, so that the world will afford few attractions, and
ordinary subjects will form only the pabulum of a more ethereal and
spiritual food There will be wasting of flesh in nightly vigils, and
much strengthening of the spirit in lonely meditations. Contented,
supremely indifferent to the things of this world, his taste of
happiness in this life will be evanescent and brief. It is a degree of
Practical, persistent and unusually fortunate. Serious meditation or
Noble in nature and mind, full of self-respect or self-conceit, but
content with little; apt to let his fantasy run away with him into the
realm of wild dreams, but endowed with endurance and horse sense;
peaceful but fond of hunting; the native inclines toward a misanthropic
pessimism getting more and more acute as the years go by and letting
the events of his earthly life look drab and boring to him. Anyone else
would consider them breath-taking.
Symbol: A woman looking on an empty cradle in an attitude of deep
grief, the figure of a child near her, surrounded by a bright light,
striving to pierce the gloom of her atmosphere.
Denotes one whose life will be one of experience and who will suffer
greatly through ignorance of certain knowledge which would free him if
he knew it. He should try and comprehend that the deeper the expressed
grief, the harder it is for the truth to be known; the blacker the
darkness, the greater the danger into which he may walk. It is a symbol
Too much affected by externals. Tendencies of judging others by himself
and so blinding himself to truths that are apparent to others.
There is a strange mysterious quality to natives of this degree. There
is often tremendous jealousy the part of the native as well as an
ability to arouse such jealousy from others. Most of this results from
excessive possessiveness. There is a selfish quality in Capricorn which
comes heavily to the fore here. Most of the unpleasantness comes from
relationships between members of the opposite sex. A mistress may ruin
an otherwise promising political career if not through scandal just the
torture not knowing exactly where the relationship stands. He attaches
himself too closely to both people and things. His problem is
definitely to learn detachment often most difficult for Capricorn.
Capricorn must own what he supports.
Eccentric Aquarius and robust Leo polarity is felt here, making a
noble, if not careful, creative degree. Easily bored, often drawn to
escapism and romance, adventures such as hunting, gambling and
masculine leisurely pursuits. May be a pessimist, but is friendly and
loyal, capable of hard work and endurance. Drawn to futuristic ideas,
and ways to make them workable. Cautious and critical.
Oratory; often involved in cases of crime or violence; practical;
persistent and usually fortunate; serious meditation on research work;
lymph vessels of knees.
Loving, honest, and straightforward. Loves to become completely
absorbed in creative activity. Desires home and family. (CAN-7-ARI,
