Question number 2:

Denise: I think I’m supposed to write a book. Can you feel the subject matter?    Thanks.
I didn’t have a time of birth for this question but I rely often on guides and was told this person was born in the evening at 10:33 PM so I ran the chart for that time. Whether this is the person’s “real” birth time or not is irrelevant it is the one this person’s people wanted me to have in order to answer the question.
Interestingly, Gemini is on the 10th house cusp in this chart and Virgo is rising – both signs that rule writing! With so many planets in the 11th house in Leo and Cancer this makes me think the persons main interest (in terms of writing at least) is in the greater good, the big picture and in organizations. It also means that this is the place of hopes and wishes (the Aquarian house). The Leo and Cancer show a flair for the dramatic and for nurturing others through larger means rather than through traditional means like having a family.
In other words this person’s purpose is to connect with the collective unconscious and communicate it in a dramatic way. Interestingly, this person has Moon in Capricorn opposite their Sun in Cancer. And Mercury is nataly conjunct the Sun, again indicating writing talent and a need to communicate. With the opposition of the Moon and Sun, there’s a very good chance that this person has suffered from depression or has put aside their higher purpose to fit in, to get by and is now feeling the urge to turn this around as Pluto enters the sign of their Moon and will eventually conjunct it leaving this person completely transformed especially (since it’s in the 5th house) in their creative endeavors.By the way this transformation will not happen over night Pluto moves very slowly so the sooner this person gets to work on their greater purpose of writing, the bigger and better (more positive as well) this transformation will be, meaning they could become very famous, successful, win awards or if they continue to doubt themselves they might spend the next ten years putting off their purpose and finally be forced into a lesser version of what their potential is.
I think this person should focus on writing fiction (or narrative non-fiction) with all that dramatic Leo energy. Subjects that would be most fruitful will have to do with family, kids, childhood, nurturing, and with the Moon’s depositor being in the third house in Sagittarius, other cultures would also be another element that would be fruitful and engaging. It also trines nearly all this person’s planets in Leo, reinforcing the ease it would be for this person to write about their travels, foreign cultures and perhaps promote greater understanding between our culture and other cultures – like a young adult novel about a kid that moves into the Mid-West from India and has to adjust to an entirely foreign culture and still manages to learn to fit in and make friends, and understand this new very different world. I’d think that would be a jumping off point. There’s a lot more in the chart I’m noticing now that reinforces this person’s love of other cultures and unique perspectives, Jupiter is also in Virgo in the first house, meaning this person often identifies with people from other places and traveling is restorative for them. Perhaps if this person can’t afford to go to a foreign country for inspiration then read and research one for now! And save your money for a trip abroad!
Hope that helps.
PS. For the next posting I’m going to abandon the question number thing because I’m getting flooded with questions and it’s becoming confusing for me. You will know, since the questions are all very different from one another. If you’re not sure you can e-mail me and I’ll confirm if I was indeed answering your question.
