Thanks for the introduction, Ingrid...here it is. I've used a fourth century Latin text...Firmicius Maternus' Mathesis
for the quotations. A big thanks to duck
who helped me with sage counsel and analysis, and also to Ingrid for reading the preliminary version.
If anyone's interested more details can be supplied. Hope you enjoy reading it, and--as with Lleyton's horoscope--I'll say that the ancient Romans watched feeding chickens to predict the future, so that should keep things in perspective.
I'm assuming that the psychic's statement that Kim's Ascendant is Pisces is true and, as I couldn't find the exact time of birth, I have calculated the angles and houses based on this assumption, so they are not as precise as they could be.
General Observation on Kim's Chart
Excluding the ascendant, Kim's chart is divided fairly equally between three elements: Air, Fire and Earth
. This balance of elements means that Kim possesses vitality and will power, a sharp mind and, with two planets in Taurus, definitely a practical side. Because of the absence of planets in water signs, she may lack intuition.
With three planets in Mutable signs, 3 in Fixed and 1 in Cardinal, Kim has a good work ethic and staying power; she also adapts well to new situations and environments. She may, however, have trouble initiating acctions or discovering new ways of solving difficulties.
5 planets in Active signs and 2 in Passive makes Kim likely to act on/control her environment rather than to react/respond to it.
The chart is nocturnal
and the Sun is near conjunction with the I.C. Only two planets were above the horizon at Kim's birth: Jupiter a little past the M.C. and Saturn above the Western Horizon. This means that much of Kim's personality is hidden from public view and confined to the public sphere. It also intensifies the power of the nocturnal planets: the Moon, Venus and Mars.
Planets in the Signs of the Zodiac and Planetary Aspects
There are only two notable planetary aspects in Kim's chart: the Sun in conjunction with Mars in the Sign of Gemini; Jupiter (in Sagittarius) in trine with Venus (in Leo). The first is considered malefic, the second beneficent.
The Sun/Mars conjunction
, which she shares with Lleyton, makes Kim combative and hot-tempered. For ancient astrologers, this is an adverse aspect as Mars brings many conflicts to the Sun. Because Kim's conjunction is in Gemini, it may mean conflicts with siblings, and also the presence of verbal aggression and slander in Kim's life. As the aspect is nocturnal, these conflicts are considered "hidden" and confined to the private sphere.
Jupiter and Venus in trine
, on the other hand, is completely positive, and gives Kim personal charm and good luck with friends and spouses. Firmicius suggests that Kim will benefit economically from the "protection of wives." Jupiter is exalted in Sagittarius, making Kim "generous, amiable, friends of many, known to all, worldly and respected." Venus in Leo
highlights again the social nature of Kim's personality, suggesting that she loves to be the centre of attention.
The Moon in Taurus
is favourably placed as this is the most emotionally stable position for the changeable moon. Mercury in Taurus is not as positive as the earth sign dulls the quicksilver energy of the planet. Kim will, however, have a good head for business and understand the value of objects.
For Saturn in Libra
, Firmicius gives a very detailed description, which, unusual for the writer, pertains specifically to women. "Women will be intelligent, revered, of good counsel, prudent...They are quarrelsome, not easily deceived or cheated...quickly escape from damage. But they are worn out from nerves."
The Ascendant, Midheaven and the Planets in the Houses
The Ascendant in Pisces
suggests that Kim is "intelligent, faithful and friendly" and that she may be "in charge of the affairs of others." Pisces is the most sympathetic of the signs and this is the immediate impression Kim gives, although the element of Water is represented nowhere else in her chart, so this appearance may be a little deceptive. The M.C.in Sagittarius
brings vague warnings from Firmicius about mistakes, but again stresses the importance of friendship for Kim. It also means that she may be promiscuous.
Sun and Mars in conjunction in the place of Dea
(third house), possibly in conjunction with the I.C.: Kim is "respectable" but "prone to illness." She is competitive and may have feelings of rivalry with others, desiring what they have. Firmicius gives a bizarre commentary on Mars in conjunction with the I.C.
, saying that Kim is likely to be a soldier, but one sent to desert places, who is likely to be the trainer and keeper of wild beasts. (Insert favourite Lleyton joke here!
Venus in the house of Bona Fortuna
makes Kim "honourable and benevolent" and likely to be "crowned with wreaths." The Moon in the second place
also makes Kim "famous and involved in well-known activities." She is also "sensual and luxury-loving."
Jupiter and Saturn
are in positive signs, but Jupiter is unhappy in a nocturnal chart and indicates that the Kim is superstitious and may become a habitual gambler.
I can provide more of my own commentary if you wish. The horoscope certainly highlights Kim's gift for friendship and social skills. She also seems a bit of a "material girl", who enjoys her comforts and luxuries. The warnings in this horoscope seem to mostly concern possible health problems, sibling rivalries and the possibilty of slander. The wreaths--given to victors in artistic and athletic contests--mentioned in the horoscope, of course, have already come true--hopefully, with many more to come.
