Horoscope 2020 Thomas H. Burgoyne Natal Chart Report Sections Three and Four

3. Your Key Chart Points and General Characteristics
Your character and temperament are a composite of the following key chart points:

Your Sun (sun sign) is in Aries.
Your Sun in Aries is pictured among the constellations by the Ram. The Ram is combative, uses its head in combat, and is the leader of its flock. Like the Ram, you likely require the zest of competition, feel the need for combat, and always strive for personal leadership. The dominant idea of Aries is I AM.

The first sign of the zodiac, it belongs to the element Fire (enthusiasm). A moveable sign, you are an enthusiastic pioneer. Belonging to the first degree of emanation, you are not to be confined or dictated to by others. Every day is a new day. Extremely optimistic you sometimes undertake more than you can manage. Be conscious of the tendency to have too many irons in the fire.

Possessing an intense will, militant power, executive ability, imperious leadership, and a dauntless pioneer spirit, you are ambitious, enterprising, forceful, self-willed, keen, independent, active, and desirous of being in command. Though you are impulsive and fiery, even in apparent rashness you are guided by intellect. Your inherent enthusiasm can lead you to rush into controversy before you have thoroughly examined all the evidence. Once you espouse a cause, you tend to be reluctant to admit you are wrong. Rash in love, bright and lively in conversation, you are inclined to politics where leadership plays an important role. Whether working constructively or destructively, you use creative power, original thinking and your brain to reach your goals. In business, you may tend to overwork.

LEADERSHIP is the best trait of Aries. Take care that strong desires to expand your territory don’t lead to a diffusion of energies. You may also want to be aware of a tendency to develop OFFICIOUSNESS (worst trait of Aries) which is an inclination to interfere unduly in the affairs of others. People resent bossiness and being told how to do things, especially when they think they are already doing well. Leadership by example and kind advice, when asked, will gain you the leadership you crave, and lead to a more successful life.

The Sun is powerful in your chart and harmonious indicating that thoughts and events relating to significance and self-esteem are important and, to the extent they are reinforced, will aid you in being successful.

Your Moon (Moon sign) and your Ascendant (Rising sign) are both in Pisces. The Moon is also your Dominant Planet.
You are a double Pisces, having both your Moon and Ascendant in that zodiacal sign indicating that your character and temperament strongly reflect the characteristics of this sign.

The Domestic Urges find harmonious expression in the naturally compassionate sign Pisces. You have high ideals and love harmony. You are very sensitive to the environment and the thoughts of others. You are likely at your best when working in the spirit of universal brotherhood. Be alert to a tendency to magnify the importance of slight hardship, or a tendency to imagine difficulty that never comes to pass. To achieve your goals and ideals, cultivate the faculty of finishing everything you start; otherwise restrictions cropping up will cause you to drop your work before completion.

Inclined to be emotionally malleable, impressionable and psychic, your best quality is SYMPATHY. Your worst quality is WORRY. With a tendency to be deeply religious, consider that you are responsible only to the extent you have ability. Trust Deity with the other details. Thoughts ruled by this sign belong to the BELIEF series. With the Domestic thought cells expressing from the I Believe attitude, the mind benefits by seeking faith that all will be well rather than dissipating energy in worry.

The Moon is the most powerful planet in your chart but neutral with regard to harmony indicating that thoughts and events relating to timing, tune, sublimity, philoprogenitiveness and general domestic affairs are important in the life, and, to the extent these harmonious thoughts are reinforced, will aid you in providing a harmonious living environment.

With your Ascendant, mapping your Personality, also in Pisces, its traits will be stamped on your personality accentuating your dreamy, imaginative and idealistic nature. You are very sensitive, peace-loving and sympathetic, but prone to worry. Avoid magnifying slight adversity.

The Ruler of Your Personality
The force of your personality, physical prowess, demeanor and appearance are not only a reflection of the power, harmony and zodiacal sign of your Ascendant, but will also reflect any planets in the 1st house or planets in the 12th house that are conjunct the Ascendant.

Planets in the 1st House include the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Mars, Neptune and Pluto. Jupiter is in the 12th House conjunct the Ascendant. These planets have significant influence over your personality, physical appearance and general demeanor. Additionally, having 7 planets in the 1st House and conjunct the Ascendant in the 12th House gives the personality, personal presence and matters relating to the physical appearance considerable energy and importance in the life. This force of personality can be used to advantage by demonstrating the best qualities of these positions as described below.

The chief ruler of your Personality is Neptune in the 1st House and ruling the sign on the Ascendant. Neptune, , the planet in the 1st House closest to the Ascendant, is co-ruler.

Neptune gives the personality a mild, dreamy, impressionable and fanciful nature that can be too idealistic or vague.

Neptune gives the personality a mild, dreamy, impressionable and fanciful nature that can be too idealistic or vague.

Your Dominant Planet is the Moon.
When the Moon is prominent in the birth chart, it denotes much curiosity and changing moods. You love notoriety, and are at your best when you are either before the public or coming constantly in touch with masses of people. When prominent and afflicted, there is a tendency toward INCONSTANCY. With a dominant Moon, it is important to realize that being favorably known by the public entails not changing your mind too often. Cultivate the power to persist in a single endeavor until you have exceptional ability. You benefit by channeling your energy into ADAPTABILITY, which is the best quality of the Moon person. The thoughts ruled by the Moon are called the DOMESTIC thoughts.

Your Dominant Moon resides in the zodiacal sign Pisces, which is described above.

Mercury: Habitual Modes of Speech and Communication
The zodiacal sign in which Mercury resides indicates the habitual mode of speech and communication via letters, email, and social media.

Your Mercury resides in the zodiacal sign Pisces. With the Intellectual thought cells, governing cerebral processes, perception, comparison and communication, expressing from the “I Believe” attitude of Pisces, the speech, and expression in general, should be positive and good humored rather than timid or fretful. The best quality of Pisces is sympathy, and its worst quality is worry.

Mercury is of average power in your chart but neutral with regard to harmony indicating that thoughts and events relating to conscious mental activity, manner of speech, writing, general social communication and mobility are important and, to the extent they are reinforced with constructive thinking and actions, will be an important factor in being successful.

 4. Key Decanates – Overarching Character and Destiny

Each sign of the zodiac is divided into three sections called Decanates. Each decanate is pictured in the sky by one of the original 36 ultra-zodiacal constellations. The pictograph associated by the ancients with each of these constellations illustrates a spiritual parable or allegory that has special significance to those born with their Sun, Moon or Ascendant in that decanate.

Your Sun is in the 3rd decanate of Aries, the Aries-Sagittarius decanate under the sub-rulership of Jupiter. PERSEUS, with the wings of thought on his feet, the helmet of courage on his head, armed with the sword of righteousness, protected by the shield of beneficence, and holding the blood-dripping head of the Medusa in one hand, pictures the third decanate of Aries. The sub-rulership of Jupiter diverts the aggressive energies somewhat into religious and philosophical channels. Consequently, this Sagittarius division of Aries has vast spiritual possibilities when its natives espouse some progressive line of thought, or use their restless never-failing energy in protection of the weak.

Perseus gained renown through his daring exploits in relieving oppression. And even as he severed the head of the Gorgon Medusa, which turned to stone all who gazed upon it, so the people of this decanate have the power to destroy the crystallizing influence of licentiousness, and like the David-version of the same tradition, cut off the head of the Goliath of selfish greed. They may become the valiant heroes who wage a successful fight against the sordid conditions that oppress civilized life. In the philosophical field of endeavor, they find useful work in releasing Andromeda, the human soul, which all too often is found chained to the rock of materialism to be devoured by lust and envy. It is the decanate of PROPAGANDA.

Your Moon is in the 3rd decanate of Pisces, the Pisces-Scorpio decanate under the sub-rulership of Mars. The last decanate of Pisces is pictured among the constellations by CASSIOPEIA, the Queen on her throne. It is the Scorpio-decanate of the sign of imprisonment, and mythology attributes the imprisonment of her daughter to the pride and jealousy of this queen for her own beauty. However, in another story she is the queen who furnished her children with the Ram that bore the golden fleece and carried them to heaven.

We find those born under this influence to have eventful lives, able to enter and succeed in a wide variety of careers. It is the last section of the zodiac, and they often seem to recapitulate in their lives the events and conditions we expect from many other decanates. They are unusually adaptable, likeable people, requiring excitement and change. They reach their highest value in spiritual research, and in adopting and advocating such a life as will prepare for existence after the change called death. It is the decanate of VICISSITUDES.

Your Ascendant is in the 1st decanate of Pisces, the Pisces-Pisces decanate under the sub-rulership of Jupiter. The Neptune-decanate of Pisces is pictured among the constellations by CEPHEUS, the King, whose foot rests upon the immovable Pole-Star. He holds aloft a scepter cut from the Tree of Life, and his crown is surmounted by seven globes representing the seven planets and Septenary Law in nature. People born under this section of the sky are naturally interested in understanding Nature, particularly in its psychic and spiritual aspects. They are mystics, to the manor born, and seek truth not so much through the methods of exact science and reason as through the exercise of their psychic faculties. They readily become seers, and have a natural aptitude for grasping the esoteric interpretation of all phenomena. This ability to recognize the truth through the inner response becomes of value in the world of affairs where secret-service work of all kinds is performed. They are detectives of the highest order, whether their talents are directed to social conditions, or to the wider mysteries of universal relations. It is the decanate of VERITY.
