Learned at a young age that self-defense, both physically and emotionally, sometimes means going numb. Has learned to open up again over the years. Protective instincts are high for those she cares about, and the innocent.
Moon in Leo
The moon represents our deepest personal needs, our basic habits and reactions, and our unconscious. Lunar Leos often feel a need to organize, and even control, their families and friends. They can be rather lazy at times, and a little bossy too.
Tends to be quiet in the early days of relationships. Then can become domineering. Will take charge if no other dominant personalities are present. Internal need to organize hampered by prior diagnosis of ADD (Choi, 2008).
Mercury in Cancer
In modern times, we tend to “meet” people’s Mercury first. You can bet that Mercury in Cancer natives will remember almost anything – from their own past, to your conversation two months ago. You might notice their memory is a little skewed in the direction of emotion. The truth is, these people remember the mood surrounding all the moments they have stored in their memory. This is because they ‘feel you out’ when you are talking to them. The words are not as important to them as the emotions behind them.
Memory issues are fascinating. Will forget easily where she put her keys or what is next on her to-do list, but can recall events that are tied to emotions with remarkable detail. Can give the appearance of not paying attention, but will surprise you later with observations.
Venus in Gemini
Venus in Gemini people will try to win over the object of their affection with witty conversation, displaying just how much they ‘know,’ and demonstrating their diverse interests.
Eclectic interests over a wide range of subjects. Tends to become immersed in a certain topic until she requires a certain level of expertise, then moves on to the next subject. Can lend to a distracted quality, but also plays to innate intelligence.
Mars in Leo
Mars rules our animal instincts for aggression, anger, and survival. Impatient with small-mindnessness and disloyalty, Mars in Leo natives generally have a strong idealistic streak. They easily get fired up when they feel they’ve been humiliated, and they defend their high principles with ardor.
Passionate about many issues. Tends to be unconventional in personal philosophies. Not physically aggressive, but can be verbally blunt to the point of being offensive. Slow to become angry, but has the potential for disturbing thoughts past a certain point. Tempered by compassionate qualities found in most Cancerians.
More often than not, Capricorn rising individuals are success stories. Their childhoods may have been difficult, but they slowly but surely turn their lives around. Saturn rules this Ascendant, and this generally means a kind of backwards way of living--as children, they are serious and bear a lot of responsibility; and as they grow up, they age beautifully, learning how to loosen up.
Comes from a dysfunctional family. Forced to grow up at a very young age. Despite early obstacles, displays a warm, if dry, sense of humor and appreciation of whimsy.
