ruled by Uranus and Saturn. Uranus is in the 10th House, that of the profession and of destiny. Saturn is in the 9th House, that of God, of higher thinking, religion and philosophy. Both these Planets arc retrograde, showing that material and worldly interests are not desired, but that the mind and spirituality will be the destiny for this life: the Sun and the Moon are in Watery Signs in Trine to each other (harmony between his first and second nature, or between his soul and will of realization). The Sun is in Pisces, the Twelfth Sign, the ultimate of the possibility of reincarnation. The Moon is in the 9th House, where Saturn is also placed. The old astrologers said that a destiny can be powerful only if, by birth, the Planets are either in their own Signs or in Exaltation.

In this chart, Mars is very well aspected by the Sun and the Moon; also Mars is in exaltation (purity), showing that it will be his free choice that he lives sometimes in seclusion. Mars in Capricorn is the strongest expression of the will for realization. This combination shows that the seclusion has a purpose: that of practicing the occult. This is not the chart of a dreamer, but of one who has the power of occult realization. There is another indication of the very high standing of this personality: in the first House, Venus is rising in the Sign of Aquarius, as so often is found in the chart of occultists. Venus here is retrograde: this person is not interested in the love of only some people, he is not interested in physical love, as indicated by Venus in Aquarius (ruled by Saturn), and Saturn in Libra is ruled by Venus; each in the House of the other, called a
