This topic gets me booed. However, I think it is wisdom to accept some of the things we don’t like about ourselves. Most people have gifts. I have seen the rare chart in which this was nothing much there to work with. This is very sad especially when the person asks you what they can do about themselves. However, this kind of chart is a rarity. Most people have some wonderful blessings and talents and some struggles(many struggles actually). I think it is the nature of this life on the earth. I am eagerly waiting for Heaven but that is another can of worms.
1. The House of Chiron
I talk about this one a lot. That is because understanding our Chiron helps us to accept our lives and not blame ourselves for pain. I think we all do this. We wonder why we are not “better”. The house of Chiron is one of the pain areas in the life of that chart holder. Most people relate to this house as being one with pain but some people do not. If someone does not, I think the time of his birth is incorrect.I have several articles on the nature of Chiron in each house. Please, study them for insight into yourself.
Charisma is a good thing. Some people have it naturally and some don’t. It is simply the nature of the chart. I think it is called the “Q factor” in television. I can tell if someone has an aspect for charisma. It does show. The classic aspect for charisma is Mars conjunct Venus. However, Mars in any aspect to Venus will have charisma, the closer the orb, the more charisma. If the aspect is in hard aspect—–opposition, square or quincunx, the person will have more of an edgy sense to them. One example is the “Girl with the Dragon tattoo. She was very sexy in an extremely edgy way. I hope this helps to explain what I mean by “edgy”.
Of course, everyone wants to be beautiful but few are truly beautiful. Many are attractive however. One can see beauty through several factors. One is Venus in close aspect to the Ascendant. Another is any beauty asteroid conjunct the Ascendant. One example is Aphrodite.Medusa makes for a “siren” like appearance i.e a tease. However, don’t take her up on it or she will turn you to stone, figuratively speaking.
4. Lying and Cheating
I know someone with Bilk conjunct the Sun. This person cannot help himself from trying to take advantage of people financially. Whenever I see the “lie asteroids”, I do not discount them. This person struggles with this. I can tell that but he cannot help himself.Mercury conjunct, oppose or square Neptune may show lying. One cannot say the person is a liar but one should be aware that they may be. On the other hand, these aspects may have an excellent imagination. Stephen King has Mercury conjunct Neptune.
5. Mars in hard aspect to Chrion—-including the conjunction
I discovered the meaning of this aspect, I think. I discovered it by doing charts. In the case of men, they do not feel masculine enough.They feel they are “lacking as men”. With women, it seems their masculine side seems hard for them to access. By masculine side, I mean things like assertion–things we respect and expect in men.
