Because I'm super-cool just like Ally, I have done a Astro Chart. Because I'm much *nicer* than Ally, you only have to read it if you want to.
All I can really say is...wow, I must have hit something wrong. Parts I agree with are underlined, anything I strongly disagree has comments in parentheses.
Rising Sign is in 10 Degrees Leo
You love to be the center of attention and you want to appear strong, confident and dominant (Right...center of attention, that's me....). You are very proud of yourself, sometimes quite vain even. When all around you are bedraggled and falling apart, you look like a million bucks (No, I look like a buck fifty at my best)! Very dignified and honorable, you enjoy the power and privilege, but not the responsibilities, that come with leadership (I don't really even care for power and privilege...I just want more toyz). You are very idealistic but can also be quite stubborn. Others impress you only if they have integrity (but wealth, power and influence can also turn your head). You prefer rich, elegant surroundings and possessions, and will try to acquire them as your budget allows (Since my surroundings are as inelegant and mostly practical as I can make them). Physically, you are very impressive - - at your best you have a regal, charismatic demeanor and bearing (Right....regal....and Bush appears intelligent all the time). Try not to be such a showoff!
Sun is in 26 Degrees Virgo.
Extremely careful and cautious by nature, you value neatness and order above all else. You rigorously practice very high standards of living and conduct and you demand the same of everyone with whom you come into contact (Since I normally have to clean my room to find the floor...and I just had to re-arrange my bench so that the paperwork and CDs weren't burying me...). At times, you are so supercritical that you are merely nit-picky. You are very good at practical skills and quite handy with tools of all kinds (except....you know...real ones...). You are also greatly concerned with hygiene, cleanliness and personal health problems (I'm not even going into how ridiculous that one is....). Very likely your health is much better than you think it is -- don't worry so much! Extremely methodical and analytical, you are a perfectionist -- this makes you the perfect person to carry out highly detailed, precise operations. But, at times, you pay so much attention to details that you lose sight of the larger issues (Usually they complain I'm looking so much at the big picture, I miss the small details).
Moon is in 16 Degrees Capricorn.
You are serious and shy and very uncomfortable in those situations where spontaneous and exuberant emotional reactions seem called for. An achiever, you prefer doing practical, worthwhile things that produce tangible results. You need role models to respect, love and emulate. You tend to feel that you're a failure unless you get an important and highly respected position in life (I'm good as long as I have my toyz). Don't be so hard on yourself! For you, practical needs always win out over emotional considerations (Riiiiiight...like I said, must have hit something wrong). Remember that you too have the right to comfort, security and love. Dutiful and patient, when you make an emotional commitment, you sign on for the long haul -- your love is long- enduring.
Mercury is in 14 Degrees Libra.
You are known for not jumping to conclusions about things (That is a part of my job...). You tend to weigh all possible choices very carefully before making a decision. When in the slightest amount of doubt, you will compromise rather than ruffle any feathers (Not really, I am the sysadmin and you will obey me...hehe). You are a true raconteur of culture and taste -- your ideas and opinions are neat, elegant and refined (like crude oil). A born diplomat, you dislike discord so much that you will go out of your way to make others feel comfortable and at ease. You speak softly and pleasantly.
Venus is in 12 Degrees Leo.
You have a striking, regal appearance and demeanor that attracts others to you (Since most of my friends say I remind them of a serial killer). Your friendship is highly sought and you tend to take friendships quite seriously -- you remain loyal and true to those to whom you are attached. For you, love is mixed with pride and respect. Relationships are over when you lose respect for your partner (Riiiiiight....uh huh, sure...). Be careful of a tendency to relate only to those who make you look good -- the powerful, important and influential. This can lead to arrogance and selfishness, and neither of these qualities becomes you.
Mars is in 14 Degrees Scorpio.
Your likes and dislikes are strong and intense, never casual or superficial. You are known for your persistence and willful obsession (I'm known for my short attention span and lack of drive to complete projects). Once you have decided on a course of action, you are unstoppable (unless, you know...there's work involved). Your emotional actions tend to be extreme, although you try to keep them muted. You are not quick to anger, you do slow burns. And you tend to release your anger as sarcasm or irony (No, I tend to release it by breaking things...why do you think I keep so much cardboard around?). Beware of your tendency to hold grudges and to be vengeful (If this was true I can think of someone who would be sooooooooooooo screwed right now...). When you do fight, or release your internal tensions, you do so body and soul -- you become totally passionate and your outbursts are awesome to behold (not really...more annoying).
Jupiter is in 22 Degrees Virgo.
You feel most expansive and at ease with yourself when you are doing something that you consider to be practical or useful. You enjoy being dutiful and carrying out responsibilities. You gladly take on the little tasks that others seem to want to avoid (No I don't...that's why God invented delegation). At times, you carry things to extremes and feel guilty anytime you do something that you consider to be self-indulgent (you mean like buying hundreds of dollars of toyz for no reason? No I don't...). While it is appropriate for you to demand little for yourself in life, try to loosen up once in a while -- go out on a fling and enjoy yourself!
Saturn is in 29 Degrees Virgo.
Your life must be orderly and practical and full of known and familiar routines in order for you to feel comfortable with yourself. Be careful, however, not to let "order" become the be-all and end-all of your life, or you may become cold, crass and unfeeling. Doing useful, practical things boosts your self- esteem. Abstract concepts and reasoning seem frivolous and a waste of time to you (Since I tend to do just as well at theory as I do at application, this is kind of amusing). You are very critical of yourself (and others), indeed at times quite self-deprecating. Try to relax a bit and allow yourself the freedom to fail once in a while (I let myself fail all the time...it's fun). However, you probably won't fail very often because you are such a perfectionist (Right...because everything around me is so perfect...).
Uranus is in 22 Degrees Scorpio.
You, and your peer group, demand to confront life at its deepest and most meaningful levels. Very compulsive and obsessive in your approach to everything, you will avoid anything that is casual or superficial, especially when it comes to relationships. You will seek out and explore new methods of healing as well as different ways to deal with deep-seated emotional problems.
Neptune is in 20 Degrees Sagittarius.
You, and your entire generation, are heavily involved in investigating and idealizing foreign and exotic intellectual systems and religious philosophies (Ummm...I can't tell you damn thing about anything in that regard). The most extreme ideals will be pursued with gusto (Snuh?). You will be at the forefront of humanitarian attempts to improve the lot of those who are in need of assistance (Riiiight, because I'm such a philanthropist). You will be comfortable with the concept of the "global village." (No...I'm comfortable with the global state of Krinland)
Pluto is in 20 Degrees Libra.
For your entire generation, this is a time of radical changes in society's attitude toward marriage and interpersonal relationships. There is a general fear and awe at the power inherent in making emotional or contractual commitments -- they will not be entered into lightly (Riiiiiiiight....).
N. Node is in 19 Degrees Leo.
You prefer to take the leadership role when it comes to dealing with others. You enjoy administering and organizing group activities (I just like bossing people around for no good reason, since I'm so dominant *wink*). Others tend to listen to your suggestions because you aren't usually overly domineering or patronizing in your interactions. You love to entertain in a big way -- you're at your best when throwing a large and lavish party (Since the last party I went to was....ummmm....I think February of 2001?). Your popularity and social success are assured as long as you don't take others for granted -- resist the temptation to become snobbish and arrogant (popularity...Krinny....two words that are mutually exclusive).
A few things that are partially true, a lot of things that are out in left field...one or two things that were right...hey, you throw enough paint at it and eventually some will land on the canvas. This is why I'm kind of underwhelmed by the whole notion of astrology.
