You definitely need to be around people and may have many friends. You have good people and social skills because you intuitively understand people and quickly form emotional connections.

Above all though, you are an excellent communicator. You are intelligent but not really seen as an intellectual person because of your common touch and lively nature. Your curiosity and good memory make you a quick learner and able to hold conversations on almost any topic.

You make a great friend because you are willing to openly share you feelings. People feel they can share their feelings with you because you listen to and understand them. This talent to engage at an intimate level extends beyond one to one interactions. You subconsciously act as a conduit in groups of people which gives everyone a feeling of belonging or team spirit.

You have a playful mind and a youthful spirit. You should make a good parent and enjoy the company of children. You may act as a representative or agent for other people or groups of people. You are the one who would speak for your family and give the toast at parties.

You have a way with words and would have been a lovely letter writer or pen pal in days gone past. Your handwriting should be neat or pleasing to look at or at least easy to read. Writing is a particular skill of yours but would be wasted on technical subjects. You are a storyteller, a poet, a songwriter and novelist.

  1. Thanks Jamie. I have moon 14 aq and merc 14 sag – 26 asc sag, 10 sun sag. I don’t feel so outgoing though, never was really. Dec 2 62 940 am calgary ab. What’s wrong with me? Shouldn’t this much sag make me the life of the party? Everything else you said was bang on, people talk to me like they’ve known me a long time, even after just a few encounters of meeting them. I soak up too much of their stuff too.

    • Unfortunately most interpretations for fixed stars are from Victorian times and do use scary words. Read all the article to see what modern authors say like

      “But war is not the only outlet for the symbolism of Antares, and it indicates just as often the individual’s great store of energy and optimism to undertake ventures which others could not attempt. According to the planets involved, and the house on the horoscope where Antares is found, such ventures can include anything from sports achievements and exploration of Antarctica or the Moon, to diplomacy of the most hazardous kind or scientific research at the extremes of human knowledge and ability.”

      The Constellations and Sun Signs roughly aligned when the Tropical Zodiac was developed over 2000 years ago. Now they are about 30 degrees out of alignment due to Precession of the Equinoxes.

  2. Your Sun conj Mercury in 12th house indicates reclusive tendencies, damping your ego and communication. May also explain your “soak up too much of their stuff”, common with 12th house placements. Transiting Saturn in your 12th may have added restrictions, too. Transiting Saturn will be conj your ASC soon and into your 1st house.
