NOW, to see the mission in life, we look at the l0th house. What sign is up there? I am now going to analyze the 12 RISING signs, and describe what this does to your mission in life.

 ARIES- MARS is your ruler. Next most important thing to know is what SIGN is it in. The ASTRO DIENST chart will give you that information. MARS, by itself, not knowing the sign it's in confers action, muscles, speed, heroicism, battle, self love, leadership powers, and if it's in the l0th house and especially, on the CUSP of the l0th, these words apply to your final career or destiny. Your Boss/parent figure/ authority figure AND/OR your JOB is to be heroic, fight, battle, be active, noisy. (The house's ruler will be MARS). MARS is the 'lord of your career. Put this Mars in the proper house in that chart you did... PAINT your MARS the COLOR RED as you draw it into whatever house it's going to be in. THE AUTHORITY FIGURES you attract, as bosses, parents, are BRASH, ARIAN in nature. MARS RULED PEOPLE are strong, and manifest energetically, i.e. so next is what planets TOUCH THIS MARS or aspect it. IF TRINES, sextiles and/or good planets in good aspects, you get: + Energy, strength, leadership, bravery but Negatives are - feckless, angry, acting too quickly.
TAURUS RISING MEANS- VENUS is one of your rulers, BACCHUS is the other, is your ruler. Next most important thing to know is what SIGN VENUS is in. The ASTRO DIENST chart will give you that information. VENUS, by itself, not knowing the sign it's in shows people who love gorgeous 'stuff,' attract a lot of it, by age 50 need storage units! They will also seek or obtain land, create gardens, own jewels, so need a dead bolt on closet and bedroom both! They end up with great wealth. Taurus rules one's possessions. Your mission or career entails working for the super rich, guiding them. You will be known for your gardening, love of flowers and build gardens. You may cook food very well, as it rules the act of eating, drinking. (RULERS of this house will be two planets, VENUS / BACCHUS) Use the COLOR GREEN to draw VENUS AND BACCHUS. A Taurus + situation would be land/ cash, wealth, solidity, jewels, working for people who love gardens, have land, invite you over a lot and feed you! A Taurus negative is - too much spending, bills, too much emphasis on food. I have TAURUS in my l0th with CLIENT RULER SATURN there so I really know this one intimately. It takes a LEO ascendant to get it, and it takes a good sense of humor to deal with the super rich. I could tell you stories!!! But then my SATURN inclines me to bitter stories. Saturn rules bitterness.
GEMINI RISING MEANS  MERCURY is your ruler. Next most important thing to know is what SIGN MERCURY is in. The ASTRO DIENST chart will give you that information. MERCURY, by itself, not knowing the sign it's in shows bright mind, curiosity, ability to learn data. Important things in your life are SIBLINGS, brothers, sisters, also early language formation, how you think, talk. What early studies you have. Mercury rules Hands, lungs, arms.(The sign MERCURY is in, the aspects it makes to other planets are super important for futher definition.) The influence of any other planet will usually provide a third house" enhancement, affecting learning, speech, writing, classes, short trips. These may apply to your career, flying around, travelling, talking, selling, teaching. Gemini's color is YELLOW. DRAW MERCURY in YELLOW. I often leave the house where GEMINI is yellow in its background color. NOW, remember, LIBRA is in your creative fifth house so you prefer partnership in the arts. You write lyrics, they write music? Call Me on phone, 818-774-1939 I'll walk you thru the houses.
CANCER or MOONCHILD RISING means  the MOON is your ruler. Next most important thing to know is what SIGN MOON is in. The ASTRO DIENST chart will give you that information. MOON by itself, not knowing the sign it's in rules the home and mother, the family, the stomach, the kitchen, cooking, emotions of nurturing and family closeness.( The ruler of MOONCHILD is duh, the MOON). Its color is seafoam green, CELERY, lunar white. MOONCHILD on the l0th gives changing career as MOON changes all the time. Often psychology and a talent for it, applies to the career.Now, lay out the houses. SATURN rules 7th house, partners are control freaks. Call Me on phone, 818-774-1939 I'll walk you thru the houses.
LEO - Romantic love, creativity, children, art, and theatre are all ruled by the Lion. SUN rules this sign, so if SUN is lord of the career house, you have a really STRONG career as SUN's the biggest thing we have. You show talents, could be in show biz. (SUN's color is GOLD so draw the sun as a gold circle with a dot in it. NOW pay attention to what lies in what house. SAG is in the fifth house of creativity. YOU LOVE Sag sweeties, you love writing as a CREATIVE PATH. Call Me on phone, 818-774-1939 I'll walk you thru the houses.
VIRGO- Job and employment are the fav things of this sign. Have it on the l0th cusp you are known for being the best employee. Your sentence is 'pay me and I'm yours." You follow orders! And so does the boss you work for. Your destiny may have to do with domestic animals, breeding them as pets. Your daily interest is in employees, also health, healing and nursing and medical careers work for you. You work for someone who in turn is serving others and also for pay, so there's a chain of command. (MERCURY and CHIRON both rule VIRGO) Draw them in BEIGE the Virgo's fav color. The + will manifest as good hard work service and the minus, - you work too hard. SATURN is lord of your house of loved ones, so you pick really aloof, cold, judgmental lovers. Your kids turn out like that, too.  Call Me on phone, 818-774-1939 I'll walk you thru the houses.
LIBRA- Partnership, marriage are ruled by LIBRA. If it's on the l0th cusp, you come from refined, tasteful stock. You work for mannerly bosses. You're interested in marriage, negotiating, relationships, law, also beauty. Legal Secretary? Artist? You would have to have CAPRICORN RISING and that means romantic love is hard to sustain as your personality ruler SATURN drives people away by being judgemental. Yet love is needed. (VENUS colors are PINK, PALE BLUE, LAVENDAR, ABALONE jewelry, all things shimmering and IRRIDESCENT. If you want to achieve peace, wear these colors and stop wearing the dark colors of Capricorn. The plus of LIBRA is + peace but the negative is - War. SATURN rules a parent who's a control freak who made you very wellmannered, so my compliments to them. It's lord of your 4th house. WILD AQUARIUS is in your 5th house so sweeties are mavericks, the kind of folks you can't tell MOM ABOUT!  Call Me on phone, 818-774-1939 I'll walk you thru the houses.
SCORPIO- You are the dark star, the far away one, the one nobody says is a planet. PLUTO is your ruler. He's a bad boy, allergic to those in power. Aquarius is probably the rising sign, making you a maverick. The tenth house is the boss or parent and you see underhandedness, their sexuality, need to control. The people you work for are dealing with partnership monies, taxes so you'd make a terrific tax attorney, stock investor. (PLUTO is your l0th house ruler. Find it in the chart, draw it in the color ULTRA VIOLET The power Pluto has is it gives + rebirth, it's the Phoenix, and rules 'come-backs'. The negative ( - ) is that it rules spying, death, all pushiness, and threats.  YOUR PERFECT mate is TAURUS ruled, deep pockets. Taurus on 7th house cusp. Call Me on phone, 818-774-1939 I'll walk you thru the houses. KIDS are PISCES ruled for you,saints, mystics.
SAGITTARIUS- If you have SAG on midheaven, you work for the angels themselves. You must have PISCES rising. Means your career is involved with GURUS, Teachers, travel, higher education, astral travel, religious science. Means that your destiny is involved with education. The boss is kindly, generous. (JUPITER is the ruler of Sag, and a royal or sapphire BLUE is color, so draw your JUPITER in to the chart, using a blue pen. The positives are + expansion and the negatives, (-) one is over indulgent, too self sure. YOUR HOUSE of love has ARIES on the cusp so you pick primitive, trim, muscular sweeties.  Call Me on phone, 818-774-1939 I'll walk you thru the houses.
CAPRICORN- WHERE YOUR RULER IS...by sign and house is where you are the total boss You are the boss figure of the zodiac, a strong careerist. SATURN is patriarchial, mature, tough, judgemental. This person gives CONDITIONAL LOVE. This is the mark of someone who will achieve Worldly power and you are like him, if your ruler SATURN is also strong by sign. Fame, knees.(SATURN is your career ruler. The color is dark, black or charcoal GRAY. The Capricorn + plus is maturity and the negative, (- ) being cautious to a fault, negative minded, judgemental. Where your  MARS is tells us everything about your family/home/ mother perhaps, but the SATURN placement describes you..
AQUARIUS- You would have to have TAURUS rising to have Gregarious Aquarius on the l0th cusp. Your boss or father figure is a Bohemian, a maverick, altruistic, eccentric, with many friends, always speaking of his or her wishes for the future, trying to achieve cooperation between people, interested in activism and humanitarian reform. These could end up somehow making a career for you. Electronics, Web design, the Internet, Political Science, Writing, Mind tech, new age transformational subjects all fit in your final career. (URANUS rules your l0th, so draw it in bold MAGENTA WITH ULTRAMARINE BLUE AND WHITE in a kind of modern art plaid as a bold H for HERSHELL it's discoverer. Then it has a little Pendulem swinging below it, a circle and a rod going up into the H. The Aquarius pluses are a + gift for networking, for leading reform groups and the negatives make us anarchists, rebellious in the extreme, always choosing to separate themselves, be independent.
PISCES-This sign is gentle, rules the end of life, feet, the E.S.P and compassion of a very evolved soul. Your parents or bosses are interested in Spiritual studies that change our vibration from gross to refined. They know words like Karma, the Astral Planet, and speak of saints. You would have to have GEMINI rising to get Pisces on the l0th. Mercury is your ruler, and you are very rational, thinky. But your destiny's path is not rational. It is about inspiration, artistry, imagination. NEPTUNE's color is LAVENDAR so draw your NEPTUNE into the chart in ink colored like grapes. The plus is + Spirit, imagination, astral friends, angelic protectors. The negatives are - fear, craziness, paranoia, ghosts, weird assaults, deceit, amnesia.
Now, look at the personal ruler and l0th house ruler and try to capture a feeling for what the planet is and means.
II. INFLUENCES OF THE RULING PLANET-
SUN- This is not a planet, but a luminary; it's the biggest quality or thing you have in your life, represents what you're known for, your reputation, your greatest talent. In a woman's chart it symbolizes the male side of her own identity, her fame, her career. It also symbolizes the type of husband she wants and father she had. In a man's chart, it is himself. It can be the male SON or sweetheart.
 MOON- The Moon is also a luminary. It represents the woman in a man's life (his mother or wife.) In a woman's chart it can also be her mother, aunt, sister, friend. In both sexes the Moon represents the inner YOU, your feelings, your psyche, the emotional type you are.
RISING SIGN- (ascendant). This represents your physical type, typical behavior, mood, where you are usually found, how you operate. MORE importantly, it determines the single planet that is the RULER of the chart.
VENUS- The Goddess of love symbolizes what gives you pleasure. It can be art talent, social abilities, how you are when in love. It generally is the sweetheart or mate, but also rules the partner in business.
MARS- This is the motor that animates you. A strong Mars gives you drive, energy, ambition, strong ego-identity, leadership gifts. It is the SELF ENERGY, the muscle you bring to your identity projection.
MERCURY- Intelligence, the way you think, speak, write. It's also your SIBLINGS, and rules young people, children, students. It rules your books, studies. And your IQ!
JUPITER- This is the planet of luck and shows where certain gain lies for you. It also rules learning, expansion, travel. THE TEACHER.
SATURN-This is the planet that shows where you HAVE A HARD TIME, where you need to grow to survive. OR ELSE! AT BEST, it's the MISSION IN LIFE, the DEDICATION AND DISCIPLINE. If a person, it is THE FATHER or BOSS. If it's a talent, it's GUMPTION, 'keep-up!.'
URANUS- Rules ideas or people that stimulate you intellectually, that illuminate you, and cause change in your life. THE FRIEND, the SCHOOL FORCE, or club you go to. The Uranus talent is anarchy, "I did it My Way." Inventiveness.
NEPTUNE- Ability to have faith, believe, do magic. RULES the Soul, selfless charity. Faith that lets you achieve magic. THE SPIRITUAL unseen GUIDE or angel and what he's trying to help you with. Also, CAN rule the CHAOS around you that makes you a hopeless case. Auric sensitivity isn't always a PLUS! Not if you live on Devil's Island.
PLUTO- Temptation, sin, the will to prevail. Can indicate obsessions, compulsions, criminality. It rules doing 180's and self transforming, rebirth. Can wipe away the past. Can as easily makes us ruthless, tricky. Rules SEXUAL AFFAIRS, the quality of personal magnetism. The power to attract others, seduce them, 'do as one pleases, say anything to get what one wants.'
CHIRON- This is a planetoid between Saturn and Uranus that has a 51 year orbit of earth. It represents the 'wounded healer' someone with empathy into those who might have their very problem.
BACCHUS- Speculative planet. Fun & great wealth. The Good life. The lord of the orgy. Grapes, music, wine women and song. Companion of Dionysius.
MIDHEAVEN POINT or MC- The doorway to your mission in life. That's what this whole article is about. M.C. means middle of the sky in Latin.
 Part of Fortuna- An Arabian part, your special LUCK point. Halloran software will calculate it, so go find his dot com and get that software! Free or next to nothing. At http://www.halloran.com
NODES or ECLIPSE POINTS- The group connections you have. Called Rahu Ketu in India. These are the invisible head and tail of a dragon which (connected to a lunation) creates eclipses! Eclipses are a whole chapter unto themselves. We'll get there, later.
THE ASPECTS:
The SQUARE of any two planets gives conflict, growth.
The TRINE makes things easy. It gives instant LUCK, success.
The OPPOSITION makes two forces link tightly as 'complements' but there is a challenge to incorporate the two dissimilar qualities. Defusing, negotiation may be req'd.
The SEMISQUARE shows something close that can be used.
The SESQUIQUAD shows you have to go far, but can win if you negotiate that 'reach.'
The CONJUNCTION gives great power, puts things RIGHT in your lap! Sometimes RIGHT DOWN YOUR THROAT!
The SEXTILE gives ideas/opportunities that MAYBE you can achieve. It gives ease in getting information.
THE QUINCUNX gives chaos you have to organize. It's not all useable. You fail then have to be reborn. Sinatra and Disney had it. Both were the King of Comebacks.
THE QUINTILE gives talents for the arts. Only a software stargazer can calculate them. Halloran does it.
 THESE ASPECTS will always LINK two planets or maybe three, and thusly give a new 'gestalt' quality. Sometimes 3 or 4 planets link for a very rare, unusual 'flavor'. ALL PLANETS have a + and a - way of operating. ANY two planets can project a dark side. Usually, abstinant people donít have the negative spin to the planet's action. People whose auras are really screwed up, bodies ill, they get the minus activity. Can't get the positive. So we can fix it by energizing the machine, the body, the vehicle. The tune-up creates the car being a Ferrari that can go places, USE ANY PLANET for its good, and we've seen how even a lousy planet can have a power or good side.
 THE HOUSES
In Astrology, these are 12 sections, (called Houses) to everyone's natal horoscope, at the moment of birth or at the moment of any event. The Astrologer calculates them by determining what part of the zodiac was 'rising in the East' at the time of birth, thusly distributing the zodiac in the different Houses of not only a birth horoscope, but of any moment in any given day. The Zodiac is divided into 12 Signs which fall into 12 Houses, each House representing or ruling a different area of life. When you look at your houses, take note of what SIGN is inside it, and what planet might RULE it.
1st House Self, environment, personality.
2nd House Money, your car, your earnings, possessions, your 'stuff.'
3rd House Siblings, early learning, grammar school, our mode of talking, communicating, the neighborhood.
4th House Family, roots, home, mother.
5th House The loved one, child or sweetheart. Your form of Creativity/art.
6th house Job, pet, servant and your health.
7th House Mate, biz partner. THE OTHER PERSON. Grandparents.
8th House What transforms you, scares you into change. Partnership money, threat of death, taxes, debts.
9th House Teachers, Gurus, higher education, travel. Our college. Our possibility of living abroad.
10th House Career, boss, father, true destiny. MISSION. What you promised God you'd do when you got here.
11th House Your friend, club, your desires/wishes, aims. Brotherhoods you belong to.
12th House Karma you bring from past lives, conditions at the end of life, hospitals, death. Late life circumstances. What we do to 'undo' ourselves!
THE ELEMENTS-  (there are four)
WATER- Emotions, feelings, the astral body. CANCER is maternal feelings, SCORPIO sexual feelings, obsessiveness, control of the other person, need for them, addition, PISCES - spiritual, selfless, sacrificial soul feelings.
 AIR- Rules the INTELLECT, and its DEVELOPMENT. GEMINI is early learning, brothers/sisters, speech. LIBRAis the love relationship with one's 'significant other' as well as the intellectual exchange with the mate. AQUARIUSis the friend, or special interest club, the political group as well a New Age intellectual systems, growth methodologies and therapies.
EARTH- Rules your MATERIAL world. TAURUS is your money and your 'stuff,' VIRGO is your job, services you do to earn a paycheck, CAPRICORN is your true destiny or career. The l0th house is the CAPPIE house, and shows your mission in life. The promise you made God before you got here.
FIRE- Your loves, passions. What lights you up. ARIES is love for one's self, basic identity. LEO rules love for one's child as well as romantic love, it also rules the passion for creativity. SAGITTARIUS is the love of the teacher for the student, and vice versa. It also rules the excitement of learning and travel.
THE MODES OF ACTION, GUNAS (in sanskrit) . (There are three.) And they are 'squares'.
CARDINAL: Rajaistic or ACTIVE mode! These represent the major life arenas: ARIES is the SELF, and opposite it, LIBRA is the MATE or PARTNER. CANCER is our mother/HOME and opposite it, CAPRICORN is our father/boss/CAREER. CARDINAL signs are WHERE YOU HAVE your major ACTION! These are the four angles of the chart. Aries 1st house, cancer 4th house, Libra 7th house, Capricorn 10th house. Place them in the circle. You will have one at each compass point, i.e. they're in a square.
MUTABLE-Sattvic or adaptable, CHANGEABLE mode. This is the background area of your life or it's things in fluctuation that you can change with your MENTAL ENERGY or which change on their own. GEMINI is neighbors, classes, your ideas, siblings. SAGITTARIUS represents your teachers & other relatives. VIRGO is job, pets, servants. PISCESis conditions in late life, KARMA. Place them around the circle you've drawn, they are also in a square.
 FIXED or Tamasic MODE, relate to conditions, people, things which pretty much stay the same. TAURUS money matters, our material station, financial class, LEO our children, beloved, sweethearts, our creative abilities;SCORPIOpower given us, money from others, sexual obsessions, AQUARIUS desires, wishes, our friends. Place these in the zodiacal circle you've drawn. This is the fixed square.
THE RULER SHIPS: ARIES ruled by MARS, TAURUS by BACCHUS and VENUS, GEMINI by MERCURY, CANCER by MOON, LEO by SUN, VIRGO by CHIRON AND MERCURY, LIBRA by VENUS, SCORPIO by PLUTO, SAGITTARIUS by JUPITER, CAPRICORN by SATURN, AQUARIUS by Uranus and PISCES by NEPTUNE. Figure out your rising, that will give you your RULER. EVERY HOUSE has a ruler. If you have TAURUS on the l0th cusp, BACCHUS AND VENUS RULE it. So these two rule 'your parent, boss, true career, true destiny.'
