Marinara's Astrological Charts 19

Uranus in Sagittarius

Uranus in this sign brings about new concepts in religion, philosophy and education. Natives of this position of Uranus can pioneer new religious and educational forms. They have a strong desire to incorporate into religion the principles of science and the occult, such as reincarnation, astrology and mental telepathy.

If Uranus is afflicted, there can be dogmatic adherence to eccentric religions and social philosophies, or a desire to negate all religious concepts, producing skeptics and agnostics. (Uranus is conjunct Jupiter, and this appears to have produced a skeptic/agnostic. Keith wouldn’t hook up with a religious nut.)

Uranus in Sagittarius gives natives a great deal of curiosity about foreign cultures. They will travel suddenly, taking long journeys out of the spirit of adventure. They will have many unique experiences in foreign countries, or with foreigners, and they tend to adopt foreign religions and philosophies. (No idea if she’s traveled abroad.)

This location of Uranus increases the imagination and inventiveness; it favors dreams, visions, intuition, premonition and traveling. The native loves science in general and takes an interest in all passing events of a scientific nature, especially inventions connected with locomotion and all means of travel.

Uranus here assists other influences that may be present in the chart to develop the higher side of the mind in almost any line where wide cultivation and higher education or understanding give scope. The native is progressive, daring, adventuresome, generous and extremely fond of liberty of action and speech; (Better not to take Keith’s advice on reporting or delivery, but follow her own instincts.) enthusiastic in beliefs and undertakings which are not always orthodox or altogether free from risk or danger.

Saturn in Scorpio

Saturn in Scorpio indicates responsibility in financial affairs, such as corporate resources, partner's finances, taxes, inheritances, insurance, and matters concerning the property of others. (Further up the page, you’ll recall that her chart indicated just the opposite; wasteful and irresponsible with other peoples’ money. This is a common aspect of nearly every chart, where one set of aspects is in direct contradiction to another set. This should only be taken as one acting in mitigation of the other. A more detailed analysis than I can provide would be needed to determine which is the stronger.)

Business activity is likely to deal with corporate financing, insurance and tax accounting. If Saturn is afflicted, there can be conflict over inheritances, taxes, and joint finances, which often incurs legal battles and losses through litigation. (Saturn is conjunct the Sun and Mercury, which are considered neutral.)

The natives are usually perfectionists in their work. They are always trying to improve the structure of the status quo. If this tendency is carried too far, they can earn a reputation as hard taskmasters. Having little patience with attitudes that reflect laziness or unwillingness to work, they are sensitive to lack of diligence in others as well as in themselves. They exert much energy and willpower on practical accomplishments. These people accept responsibilities with a serious emotional intensity that often burdens them; they must learn to deal calmly and efficiently with them as they arise. Thoroughness, persistence, and determination are the rule with Saturn in Scorpio, giving a drive for success that is equaled by only a few other positions. These people desire authority and will struggle hard to attain their ambitions; whether they use fair means or foul depends on Saturn's aspects. (Saturn has a conjunction with both the Sun and Mercury, which is considered neutral, but squares the Ascendant. That’s an “affliction”.) Natives are capable of harboring deep resentment when they feel they have been dealt with unjustly. They can also have an almost fanatic adherence to principle. If Saturn is afflicted, (it is, with a square to the Ascendant) there can be a tendency to scheme and plot. A desire for revenge and an inability to forget past emotional injuries may also be present. In health matters, there can be problems with constipation or calcification.

Sudden resolutions, violent temper, passionate, self willed, acquisitive, jealous, independent, resourceful and cautious; shrewd mind rather than profoundly intellectual. Sorrow through love affairs, secret alliances, intrigues or domestic difficulties (Hello, Keith). Psychic ability and fondness for occult investigations, chemistry or geology. Success through persistence and cleverness after many difficulties, obstacles and trials, especially if necessary attention is given to development along the higher lines.

Jupiter in Sagittarius cont.

Jupiter in Sagittarius gives an interest in foreign cultures, religions, races, and social systems, often expressed both through study and through long trips to foreign countries--especially if the natives can afford it. There is also a deep interest in the social and philosophic ideas that have shaped history. This breadth of understanding produces a farsighted outlook on life and an often prophetic insight into the future. If Jupiter is afflicted, (It is, heavily, squaring Venus and Mars) these people can have narrow-minded views to which they expect all to conform; they regard those who do not as unworthy of approval. A common accompaniment is a self-righteous attitude of the type that has promulgated religious wars throughout history. Personal egotism disguised as religious, national, social, or racial chauvinism is often the motivation behind such an attitude. If Jupiter in Sagittarius is not balanced by sufficient mental development and faculties of impartial discrimination, as would be indicted by a well aspected Mercury, Saturn, and Uranus, (Well aspected: Mecury sextile Neptune, Saturn and Uranus are not, as well as other Mercury aspects) there is danger of superstitious adherence to dogmatic religious beliefs. These beliefs are instilled in early childhood, and are used as an unconscious defense mechanism against the frightening aspects of the unknown, confrontation with which could upset the psychological security of a neatly packaged doctrine. The tendency to get enmeshed in a system applies equally to radicals and conservatives with this Jupiter position.

The native is endowed with a courteous, affable, tolerant, humorous, kind, generous, sympathetic, loyal and noble nature. The mind is broad, just, liberal, merciful, compassionate, humanitarian, sincere, prophetic and philosophical. Jupiter in Sagittarius tends to good fortune and general success.

The native is usually successful in his enterprises, often receives honors and is a leader among his associates. It is favorable for matters connected with sports, horses, shipping, literature and learned, scientific, philosophic or religious bodies (and not, apparently, the communications arts.) If other testimonies in the chart concur, it tends to gain through speculation (investing), marriage (Keith), legacy (inheritance—btw I’ve heard her dad is a heart attack waiting to happen) and voyages (a job overseas?) If afflicted, troublesome social affairs, difficulty through sports (baseball?) and loss by speculation or gambling. (I’d like to speculate here, in that she may see Keith as an investment, and is gambling on gaining status and money through him. And jobs.)
