22 NATAL REPORT FOR EVA This combination gives a personality that experiences difficulties with relationships. You are likely to have had painful experiences surrounding marriage and intimate partnerships, but there are also great rewards to be gained in this area. You are drawn to relationship at the same time that you fear it, so that you may also have a strong focus on forming close emotional attachments. You may have had early childhood experiences that made it hard to accept the love of others in your adult life. With these distractions, you also may strongly desire to help other people, and yet be unable to give them the full benefit of your higher self. It is good to make the effort to connect yourself consciously with any painful events that may be buried in your unconscious, so that these will no longer have so much power over you. Once you have begun to integrate these painful feelings consciously, and shed the baggage of earlier frustrations, you can be a more fully participating partner to others, and be more of help to them as well. Mars in semi-square (within 1.1 degrees) with Saturn The planetary energies conflict in determined subtle tension; calmness is required. This aspect gives a deepening and concentration, or blockage, in the area of selfconfidence and self-expression. You may be reserved or controlling, appear cruel and attempt to strongly assert yourself by seizing control of situations. You can benefit by striving to overcome your fears of selfexpression, and thus come to a better understanding of yourself and others. Mars in semi-sextile (within 1.7 degrees) with Uranus The planetary energies attract each other, require effort, allow entry of new information. This aspect gives an individual with an original and eccentric mind, whose intuition is strong. You are a strong-willed nonconformist, and are energetic and visionary in your outlook. You may be rebellious at times, and can display fits of temper. You can be rash and impulsive. You may also be restless or lack steadiness in the pursuit of your goals. You may feel a sense of isolation, and can appear emotionally insensitive at times, seeming to be more excited by ideas than by other people. Your basis for action derives from a sense of high ideals, rather than from mere egotism. Change and variety excite you, and your mutability can frustrate or confuse those around you. You can benefit from bringing more consciousness and clarity to the expression of your goals in life. Mars in quintile (within 1.0 degrees) with Pluto The planetary energies are positively linked, subtle, and spiritual in dimension.
23 NATAL REPORT FOR EVA This conjunction gives a personality with a tremendous drive for power and transformation of self. You have enormous energy and endurance at your disposal. You may have feelings of insecurity that are compensated for by being overly forceful, acting compulsively or even becoming obsessive about achieving your will. In a more positive manifestation, you can exhibit a dedication to higher ideals and a willingness to be a channel for healing yourself and society. The challenge is movement away from feelings of insecurity and resulting separateness and loneliness, toward a better acceptance of other's needs and opinions in order to generate wholeness, forgiveness towards self and others, and a new and better sense of self-worth. Mars in inconjunct (within 0.4 degrees) with Chiron The planetary energies do not flow smoothly, one or the other predominates; discrimination must be employed. With this aspect you have issues around expressing anger, as well as exerting personal will versus knuckling under to authority. You have enormous energy and endurance at your disposal, although you may appear timid or unsure of yourself, since your power urge is likely to be repressed. It may be that you have had many painful experiences with violence, or potential violence, on the part of someone close to you, perhaps in your early childhood. As a result of these experiences, you may fear the power of your own anger, and seek to placate your opponent in situations where a direct confrontation seems to be brewing. This aspect is the hallmark of a "passiveaggressive" attitude, in which there is hidden aggression under-expressed, rather than any form of direct attack. In fact, it is said that those with this aspect are often very good at eliciting angry behavior from others, while their own hands stay clean. This is because those people you come into close contact with may become the projection point for your own hidden violent feelings that you are failing to directly express yourself. It is often the case that the powerful emotions associated with this aspect hover below the level of conscious awareness in your psyche. As you become more aware of these patterns, you will less and less need to act them out either suppressed with passivity, or with bluster. Another manifestation of this aspect, perhaps paradoxically, is the ability to lead and be willful, to not take "no for an answer", to be ruthless in accomplishing one's aims. The willful energy of Mars is given a creative boost by Chiron, both in terms of suffering and in a better-integrated personality, in terms of conquest. A still better level of integration produces the self-assured and powerful personality who does not depend on others either to express his or her own desires, nor to be crushed by them.
