The moon is the first dominant in Sam Kiszka’s astral chart. In the following paragraph, we shall indicate the significance of this fact:
As the second light of the solar system, the moon has always been associated with the sun in the minds of men. The moon and sun are the primordial cosmic couple. This satellite of the earth, which mysteriously waxes and wanes, has been compared to the eternal feminine principle, the mother hovering over your infant’s cradle. Psychologically, the moon is thus symbolic of the mother and the mother image. This figure is a primordial element in the psyche of each individual. Depending on your nature, the mother figure may correspond to your biological mother, a grandmother, or a woman who cared for you in infancy and childhood.
When Sam Kiszka reaches adulthood, this mother-figure and all the emotions and bonds associated with Sam Kiszka may be transferred to something else: a spouse, a companion, an institution, a church, corporation, or political movement, a cult, etc. In short, any individual or structure likely to take on the mother’s duty of caring for and nurturing the vulnerable aspects of an individual.
To be more down-to-earth, the mother figure corresponds to the habits which were learned and then definitively incorporated into the individual’s identity as Sam Kiszka gradually became acculturated and progressed toward social independence. As a result, a strongly “lunar” personality often finds it difficult to adapt and is uncomfortable outside the secure setting of familiar routines.
Closely tied to Sam Kiszka’s past, Sam Kiszka may be unwilling to detach Sam Kiszka from it and embark on Sam Kiszka’s life as an individual in the here and now. Sam Kiszka still identifies somewhat with Sam Kiszka’s inner child and may display a child’s capricious behavior, indulging in moodiness and indecision. Sam Kiszka’s passivity may make Sam Kiszka easily influenced, Sam Kiszka’s sensitivity makes Sam Kiszka subjective, and Sam Kiszka hesitates to open up and lay Sam Kiszka’s soul bare. In Sam Kiszka’s daily life, psychic activity will rule. Sam Kiszka’s imagination, memory, sensitivity, sensation, and sentiment nearly overwhelm Sam Kiszka’s psyche.
Neptune is the second dominant in Sam Kiszka’s astral chart. In the following paragraph, we shall indicate the significance of this fact:
This planet is the quintessential symbol of individual receptivity and the fundamental reactions of the unconscious, including the collective unconscious. Opposed to Saturn, which is the principle of form, structure, and limitation, Neptune is a principle of dissolution. It concerns any effort to encompass the greatest variety of factors, any tendency to surround and blend all the narrow, individual points of view into a single, universal sea.
Psychologically, the Neptunian effect is expressed as an exceptional psychic flexibility and extreme pliancy. Sam Kiszka thus displays considerable receptivity and availability. Sam Kiszka feels a need for unity, a need to be related. Sam Kiszka is also deeply aware of the importance of dreaming, and, negatively, may be prone to delusions.
At certain times, Sam Kiszka is overwhelmed by a feeling of subtle confusion related to a need for “something else.” When Sam Kiszka’s well-being is disturbed this way, Sam Kiszka either yields to a sort of passive, apathetic dissatisfaction, or loses Sam Kiszka in the search for an imaginary world, perhaps to escape or plunge into bliss.
Sam Kiszka is sometimes captivated by a need for illusion; Sam Kiszka would like to experience change through the intermediary of events which are vaster than consciousness and would take Sam Kiszka far from routine and daily banality. Nevertheless, usually these fantastic dreams only make Sam Kiszka all the more painfully aware of the realities of everyday life. Sam Kiszka’s spirit and emotions emerge confused, and Sam Kiszka’s will is sometimes weakened.
Venus is the third dominant in Sam Kiszka’s astral chart. In the following paragraph, we shall indicate the significance of this fact:
In traditional astrology, Venus (or Aphrodite, her Greek name) is the planet of love. A source of universal attraction, this planet corresponds to the original urge which bonds two human beings together in love. Venus is thus both the magnetism which brings human beings together (not lust, which is symbolized by Mars, but the object which attracts lust) and the gift of love. This ambiguity is interpreted astrologically by the fact that Venus rules two houses of the zodiac. In Taurus, Venus symbolizes the awakening to bodily lust, and in Libra, the bond of marriage. As a result, Venus may take on very different aspects depending on the individual’s degree of awareness.
Likewise, this ambiguity explains Aphrodite’s equivocal conduct in Greek myth and her innumerable couplings and motherhood. Depending on the legend, she may embody brutal, passionate love (with Anteros), the wisdom of the heart which rescues from passion (Harmonia); she also becomes tenderness and purity (with Adonis), pure sexuality (with Eros), a transforming energy (with Vulcan), etc. Mistress of the Arts, she represents beauty, understanding, and peace.
Psychologically, individuals under the influence of Venus are struggling with their love instincts. This is why Sam cannot conceive of living without a personal emotional relationship to someone else and sometimes fears solitude and the encounter with themselves. Sam is extremely attractive to others and is a creator and artistic genius who seems to imbue all they touch with beauty and harmony. Sam’s artistic skills are obvious to the people around them and may be applied to career endeavors.
Pleasure, outings, seduction, love, and a thriving but sometimes superficial social life are the hallmarks of Sam’s life.
The seventh house is an area of the sky which is especially important in Sam Kiszka’s theme, because it contains several planets, including the one which rules Sam Kiszka’s rising sign. In the following paragraph, we shall explain the general meaning of this fact.
