Sun 21°33' Leo

Sun Aspects
Sun conjunction Mercury orb +0°10'
Sun conjunction Saturn orb +8°48'
Sun semi-square Pluto orb -0°40'
Sun opposite Uranus orb -8°30'
Sun sesqui-quadrate Moon orb -2°49'
Planets: Sun

The Sun represents vitality, individuality, will-power and creative energy and honours. For a woman, it also represents her father, and later her husband. The Sun is one of the most important symbols in the birth chart, as much as the Ascendant, then the Moon (a bit less for a man), the ruler of the Ascendant and the fast-moving planets.

It's element is fire; it is hot and dry, it governs Leo, is in exaltation in Aries and is in analogy with the heart. It represents the boss, authority, beside the father and the husband ; the age of the Sun goes from 20 years old to about 40, following the Venus age when one is aware of his seductive power.

Temperament : Bilious

Characterology : Emotive, Active, Secondary, passionate type.

Sun in Leo

You display a firm will and a certain nobleness of heart. You make use of, and sometimes, you abuse of your persuasion powers in your efforts to project a brilliant image of yourself. Your generosity is unlimited towards the people who do not antagonize your beliefs. But you do not accept to be contradicted, and you do not tolerate errors and defeats. You are sensitive to power struggles and you strive to keep your image and your panache free from all stain. No one can step on your toes! Leo is ambitious and he does not rest until the exhibited power he conquered is fully respected. Therefore, you properly fulfil the responsibilities you are entrusted with, but above all, you make it a point of honour to show that you are up to any situation. Whenever you have the opportunity to prove yourself in your activity, your fighting spirit, votre majestic persuasion powers and your conquering mind are amazing. You need to wield power. It is indispensable for you to feel comfortable and to be at your best. Leo must be cautious not to mistake his territory with that of his neighbour! The respect for borders – affective, social and professional – can spare you the delusions and the backlashes inherent to the love for power. If this condition is met, individual legitimate ambition becomes a source of creativity.

Sun Dominant

If the Sun is part of your natal chart's planetary dominants, in astrology, you are said to be a Solarian: you loathe pettiness and Machiavellian manoeuvre, and you are fond of natural nobleness as well as of direct and honest attitudes. You endeavour to get out of muddled or dark situations as quickly as possible. Your need for transparency may lead you to make cut-and-dried judgments such as yes or no, and black or white. However, your honesty commands your entourage's consideration. At times, you come across as authoritarian. It is true that you never want to be thought of the notable absentee, and that you manage to make people pay attention to you, as well as to your plans and your assessments. To this end, the Solarian sometimes develops a great talent for placing himself under the spotlight without missing a single opportunity to arouse interest. Some other Solarians, although more discreet, still manage to be the focus of any debate, even in situations of exclusion. It is your way of being present even though you are actually not there... More than other people, you appreciate the esteem extended to you. It is useless to cheat with you, since in all areas you consider establishing enduring relationships only with those who love you, admire you, respect you, or express some degree of affection to you. Your will to straighten out your inter-personal relationships is your strength and sometimes, your Achilles' heel. You cannot achieve anything behind the scenes. Therefore, your comportment is marked with heroism, and your stands are devoid of ambiguity, in the sense that your commitments are unfailing, and your rebuffs, final.

Interpretation of the 21° Leo symbolic degree

"A sparrow hawk glides above a nest of fledglings. In the nearby thatched cottage, an ailing man lies in bed." (Janduz version)

Naive, indecisive, and weak character. Dangers and deceits crop up since childhood. They come from outsiders but also from the family circle. One tends to seek help from the very people who are envious and willing to harm. It is strongly recommended not to trust anyone, and never to talk about one's successes, even with family members, because some relatives covet the assets of the person born under the influence of this degree. Should the natal chart concur, a sudden disease such as meningitis may affect the head.

N.B.: symbolic degrees belong to a branch of fatalistic astrology. Their interpretation must be regarded with the utmost caution, especially given the fact that different authors give different meanings to symbolic degrees. This is the reason why they are not included in our Astrotheme reports.

Moon square Pluto orb -2°08'
Moon trine Jupiter orb -6°30'
Sun sesqui-quadrate Moon orb -2°49'
Moon sesqui-quadrate Mercury orb -2°38'
Planets: Moon

The Moon represents instinctive reaction, unconscious predestination, everyday mood, sensitivity, emotions, the feminine side of the personality, intuition, imagination. For a man, she represents his mother and later his wife, and his relationship with women in general. For a woman, the Moon is almost as important as the Sun and the Ascendant. Her element is water, she is cold and moist, she rules Cancer, is in exaltation in Taurus and is in analogy with the stomach.

She symbolizes the mother, wife, the crowd, the Moon is associated with birth and childhood. Tradition also matches her with the end of life, after Saturn the old age, it is thus customary to go back to one's place of birth to die: the end of life meets the very beginning.

Temperament : Lymphatic

Characterology : Emotive, non Active and Primary type or Non-Emotive, non Active and Primary, Nervous or Amorphous type.

Moon in Aries

On the day and at the time of your birth, the Moon was in the sign of Aries. Your imagination is lively and fantastic and brings about periods of enthusiasm during which you are driven by your sudden impulses. Your sensitivity lives on thrills that you want to experience in the instant… till exhaustion. Your spontaneity is coupled with some instability: mood swings and whimsical behaviours are the dangers to which your excitability exposes you. You often show demeanours full of contrasts, especially in your intimate life. One never gets bored with you, even on a daily basis. Isn’t real rest about being touched and stimulated, over and over again? Boredom is what you dread most. Therefore, it is easy for you to adjust to precarious life rhythms and to quickly achieve balance, as temporary as it may be, should unforeseen evolution emerge.

Moon Dominant

If the Moon is part of your natal chart's planetary dominants, in astrology, you are said to be a Lunarian: the driving force behind your actions is mainly the pursuit of well-being and tranquillity. Your sensitive and romantic self lives on those periods of rest during which you let your imagination wander at will. This is your way of finding inspiration and balance. Nothing is allowed to disturb your feeling of fulfilment and security within a harmonious cell, be it a family or a clan. More than other people, the Lunarian is attached to those moments during which one forgets one's worries and lets oneself cast adrift aimlessly, with no other goal than to be lulled into an ambiance, a situation, or a perfect moment. Many people do not understand such absences and their meaning, which is to regain strength. These people readily describe you with such unflattering terms as apathy and nonchalance. Never mind! Some inspirations require surrendering as well as striking a balance derived from alternate action and passivity. Your qualities are expressed to the fullest in situations which demand familiarity and privacy. Your capacities to respect and blend into your environment is at least as valuable as some other people's aggressive dispositions. However, you are well-advised to avoid indolence and renunciation out of laziness or indifference.

Interpretation of the 9° Aries symbolic degree

"A hunter holding a rifle stands amid corpses and injured people on one side, and on the other, his hunting board: pheasants, partridges, and hares." (Janduz version)

Quiet, courageous, and generous character. Success is achieved in a very unusual and prestigious occupation requiring boldness, such as in the military, big game hunting, politics, etc. Should the natal chart concur, one can have a quite remarkable career in chemistry, mechanics, or metalwork such as the manufacture of weapons. One wins many a victory, including in the romantic field, which is fraught with hurdles and hurt self-esteem. This degree indicates that success is, somehow, linked to deaths or destruction.

N.B.: symbolic degrees belong to a branch of fatalistic astrology. Their interpretation must be regarded with the utmost caution, especially given the fact that different authors give different meanings to symbolic degrees. This is the reason why they are not included in our Astrotheme reports.

Planets: Mercury

Mercury represents communication, logical and rational mind, intellectual skills. Earth is its element, it is cold and dry, and it rules Virgo and Gemini, is in exaltation in Virgo and is in analogy with the arms, hands, nervous system.

It represents tradesmen, lawyers, messengers; the age of Mercury goes from 8 or10 years old to about 15..

Temperament : Nervous

Characterology : Emotive, non Active and Primary type or Non-Emotive, Active and Primary, Nervous or Sanguine type.

Mercury in Leo

Mercury describes your relations, your communication skills and the way you relate to the external world. However, other astrological elements also influence these areas. The sign Mercury occupies is significant only if Mercury is part of your planetary dominantes. In your chart, Mercury is in Leo. You want to explain and to control complex situations. You express yourself straightforwardly and directly, at the risk of hurting your entourage. Communication means to figure out the character and the specificity of each individual; you need to understand and to define the personality of your interlocutor so as to clarify the relationship. On the human plane, you are sensitive to power struggles and to the power exerted.

Mercury Dominant

If Mercury is part of your natal chart's planetary dominants, in astrology, you are said to be a Mercurian: the tradition points out the importance of communication. From idle but enriching chatters to observation gift, such a dominant endows you with a wide range of expression. Human beings have one thousand facets and one thousand masks they wear according to circumstances and the fortunes of the game of life. You take the role of an observer who is avid for novelties, discoveries, and surprises. Everything catches your attention and becomes an opportunity for new encounters, relationships, and learning. The world amazes you, amuses you sometimes, and stimulates your curiosity. Because the most important thing is to discover, and because you consider that each new situation is packed with potentialities, you try to fill the gaps in your knowledge. Although your open-mindedness may scatter your centres of interest, it also enables you to carefully avoid sticking to only one immutable and rigid view. The slightest sign enables you to perceive the other side of the coin, as well as the infinite complexity of people and of situations. On the human plane, you seek the dialogue and the information without which you know that you are not able to fully grasp the nature of your interlocutor. This keen interest in the Unknown sharpens your inter-relational skills. All these qualities are traditionally associated with Mercury.

Characterology : Emotive, non Active and Primary type or Emotive, non Active and Secondary type.

Venus in Virgo

Venus describes your affective life. On the day of your birth, she is found in Virgo. The control of your emotions is essential to you. You need to understand all the aspects of your sentimental life. Therefore, you do not commit your affectivity in tortuous or hazardous paths. This attitude may be interpreted as a form of reserve, of modesty or of shyness. You complicate your amorous relationships for fun… Moderation in all things, even and particularly in love! Appearances are misleading: your behaviour may seem cautious, even shy or timid, however, your affectivity is strong… Your heart is discreet and its impulses are controlled and moderate. You do not want your relationship to run out of your control. Your soul is loyal, you are helpful when necessary and you avoid crises, clashes and tragedies in order to not endanger your couple. You are keen to maintain the balance of your unions. But, as you strive too relentlessly to keep your happiness intact, you may lose it. You do not dare to play the games of passion and of love at first sight. You fear burning feelings. In these conditions, it is important that you do not smother your emotions and you take the risk of experiencing a passionate love. Feelings cannot be calculated and they obey very few laws.

Venus Dominant

If Venus is part of your natal chart's planetary dominants, in astrology, you are said to be a Venusian: you are a sensual and emotional person particularly receptive to the natural likes and dislikes aroused by your contact with people. You are prone to frequent instinctive aversions and true passions which are exclusively driven by the feeling of love. The heart has its reasons which Reason knows nothing of... Your balance is based on the richness of your affective life. Without love, the Venusian is resourceless, lost, and deprived of any reason for living. You have an obvious and strong will to charm and to arouse the attachments without which you cannot properly function. Every area of your life is thus marked by your affectivity. The danger is that you may "be taken in" by charm. In such cases, you would prefer to keep your emotions under better control. Thus, hyper-sensitivity has its own inconveniences. Nevertheless, better than anyone else, you know how to play with feelings and attractions. Although you are sometimes caught in the traps of an over sensitive emotionalism, feelings remain your best assets in many circumstances. There is another aspect to the Venusian dominant. According to the Tradition, this planet rules the Arts, and you are endowed with some degree of artistic dispositions, ranging from good to excellent.

Interpretation of the 26° Virgo symbolic degree

"In his workshop, a disheartened carpenter stands idle whereas his employee cheerfully pulls the workbench cluttered with badly maintained tools." (Janduz version)

Clumsy, incompetent, and lazy character. One is handicapped by a lack of skills, and above all, by the certainty that wealth can be achieved without effort. Passivity may encourage people who are more active and hard-working to grasp all the good opportunities. However, the courageous employee of the image also stands for the person influenced by this degree. All it takes to become successful is to pull oneself together, get proper training and start practicing, straight away.

Mars 24°58' Cancer

Mars Aspects
Mars conjunction Jupiter orb +7°54'
Venus sextile Mars orb +1°15'
Mars bi-quintile Uranus orb +0°54'
Planets: Mars

Mars represents the desire for action and physical energy, sexuality, strength. For a woman, Mars corresponds to the kind of man she's attracted to (but not especially in marriage which is rather symbolized by the Sun, Mars is the lover, not the husband). Fire is its element, it is hot and dry, and it rules Aries and Scorpio (along with Pluto), is in exaltation with Capricorn and is in analogy with the muscles and the spleen.

It represents the soldiers, sportsmen, warriors, surgeons, blacksmiths... ; the age of Mars goes from 42 to 50 years old.

Temperament : Bilious

Characterology : Emotive, Active, Primary type. It is a Choleric.

Mars in Cancer

The planet Mars indicates how you react to life concrete stimulations. It also describes your fighting spirit, your abilities to stand for yourself and to take action. With Mars in Cancer, it is mainly within your familiar and intimate realm that you express your will. You may appear as an exceedingly flexible person, with no ascendancy over the external world. But this is misleading; when your life setting or your entourage are endangered, you may be forceful. You limit the scope of your action to the areas you control very well and you do not fight against things you are not deeply involved in. You prefer to dedicate your energy to struggling against circumstances that may endanger your environment. You concentrate your strength and this is probably the cause of your rare but dreaded interventions.

Mars Dominant

If Mars is part of your natal chart's planetary dominants, in astrology, you are said to be a Marsian: in your hand-to-hand struggle for life, you demonstrate an acute and active sense of confrontation with the world, with other people, and with your own destiny. You need to take action and to fight for your projects and your desires. You perceive all situations with deep intensity, and you react to the here and now without bothering to step back in order to ensure that events are under your control. You take up challenges with excessive foolhardiness as a consequence of your impulsiveness. However, better than anyone else, you know how to mobilise your resources in case of crisis. You take action whenever it is necessary to do so, and you are present in a timely manner. With Mars, your attitudes are dictated by the realities of the moment, by your emotions, and by everything which proved to have worked in the past. When this dominant is not well integrated, it may bring about an aggressive or impulsive behaviour. Therefore, you must learn to control your hyper-sensitivity and your fits of temper. You are also endowed with Marsian qualities: the fighting spirit and the taste for duel without which one may find oneself overwhelmed by events. When this willpower is well channelled, its precious energy enables to cope with all sorts of contingencies. There are a thousand ways to win, and a thousand challenges to take up with the enthusiasm and the dynamism which make life so worthy. A certain idea of life which is wild, passionate, and in tune with events.

Interpretation of the 24° Cancer symbolic degree

"A man with a rifle slung over the shoulder rides a horse across a desert towards an oasis." (Janduz version)

Independent, imaginative, and rebellious character. The rifle symbolises physical strength but also psychological qualities. One has the ability to implement projects by oneself, and one is driven by the certainty that the criticisms underwent at the outset will turn into praises once success is achieved. Everything related to innovation or discoveries, foreign commerce, and exotic trade are very favoured. Speculations in foodstuff are lucrative. Estrangement from the family is possible.

Jupiter 2°52' Leo

Jupiter Aspects
Jupiter conjunction Neptune orb +6°39'
Mars conjunction Jupiter orb +7°54'
Moon trine Jupiter orb -6°30'
Planets: Jupiter

Jupiter represents expansion and power, benevolence, large vision and generosity. Its element is Air, it is hot and moist, and it rules Sagittarius and Pisces (along with Neptune), is in exaltation with Cancer and is in analogy with the hips and endocrinal system.

It represents the governors, magistrates, professors, religious men too; the age of Jupiter goes from 50 to 55 or even 70 years old.

Temperament : Sanguine

Characterology : Emotive, Active, Primary type; it is an extrovert Choleric. Actually the humid version of Mars, inclined to action like him.

Jupiter in Leo

The planet Jupiter symbolizes expansion, broadness and generosity. Jupiter is associated with the functions of synthesis, enthusiasm and optimism. In your natal chart, his house position is more important than his sign position because, like Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, he is a slow planet. Many people born in the same period have Jupiter in the same sign. This is the reason why the sign occupied here is less meaningful than when it is occupied by the so-called fast planets, i.e. the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars. Therefore, some caution is to be exercised as you read what follows. Jupiter in Leo gives you a strong inclination for luxury, arts, parties and shows: your nature is fond of leisure, preferably in noble, proud, even dramatic ways. You feel comfortable in the field of entertainment. You love children, laughters and splendour… Your creativity is often remarkable.

Jupiter Dominant

If Jupiter is part of your natal chart's planetary dominants, in astrology, you are said to be a Jupiterian: because this planet brings about a keen interest in social and professional success, the Tradition considers it to be beneficial. Indeed, you know how to adjust to events and to jump at the chance when it arises. The members of you entourage gladly entrust you with high responsibilities because they are often impressed by your learning skills and your adaptation abilities as you deal with new structures and new languages. What is the secret of your good star? It is your self-confidence which wins public support. Now, what is the secret of your charm? Definitely, enthusiasm, euphoria, and exaltation. Exaggeration also. When this dominant is well integrated, it is a factor of affluence and optimism, and a certain degree of joviality enables you to easily fit into various spheres. It constitutes your main asset to manage your life. However, you must at times curb your desire for integration, lest your sense of opportunity turns into extreme opportunism. Here also, the key to success lies in a correct estimate of everyone's chances and possibilities. Although management is one of your forte, and you can adjust your objectives to current realities better than other people, you lack the hindsight which enables you to avoid short-term vagaries and daily fluctuations. If you strive too much to adapt, you run a risk of betraying yourself. This is the other traditional side of the coin with "The Greater Benefic"!

Interpretation of the 2° Leo symbolic degree

"A sad-looking man is seated on a stool in front of a light which is obscured by a black cloud." (Janduz version)

Depraved and thoughtless character. One displays loose morals in both private and business matters. If the natal chart shows strong probity, then this degree indicates that faith is tremendously helpful in overcoming ordeals caused by twists of fate.

Saturn represents concentration, effort, perseverance, time, the hard reality, inevitable consequences. Earth is its element, it is cold and dry, and it rules Capricorn and Aquarius (along with Uranus), is in exaltation in Libra and is in analogy with the bones (skeleton) and the skin.

It represents the grandparents, old people, scientists, knowledgeable men, Saturn corresponds to old age; it goes from 70 years old until death.

Temperament : Nervous

Characterology : Non-Emotive, Active and Secondary type or Emotive, non Active and Secondary type or sometimes Non-Emotive, non Active and Secondary type; it is a Phlegmatic, a Sentimental or an Empathic type

Saturn in Virgo

The planet Saturn symbolizes contraction, effort, time, limitation and concentration. Saturn eliminates anything that is not authentic, sooner or later. It is impossible to cheat him as he gives an irresistible desire to form a coherent whole with oneself, in responsible and wise ways. He is the great purifier. He represents our limitations but also our truth. In your natal chart, the house position where Saturn is posited is more important than his sign position because, like Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, he is a slow planet. Many people born in the same period have Saturn in the same sign. This is the reason why the sign occupied here is less meaningful than when it is occupied by the so-called fast planets, i.e. the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars. Therefore, some caution is to be exercised as you read what follows. Saturn in Virgo gives you a persevering and precise nature. This good combination increases your taste for sciences and for effort and you are constantly striving to improve yourself. Your tenacity works wonders.

Saturn Dominant

If Saturn is part of your natal chart's planetary dominants, in astrology, you are said to be a Saturnian: you gladly leave to other people the decision to take life as it comes. As far as you are concerned, you prefer to take advantage of your experiences in order to discover, to grow, and to question yourself.

Interpretation of the 0° Virgo symbolic degree

"The owners of the manor have put on their most beautiful attire to attend a party they offer to all the villagers." (Janduz version)

Sociable, pleasant and orderly character. One is willing to adjust to all situations and always respects friends and visitors regardless of their social origins. One is fond of all sorts of entertainments and parties. One has numerous friends because one's warm and helpful nature is highly appreciated. Life unfolds in happiness and simplicity. If in the natal chart, this degree is in conjunction with the Ascendant and the Sun, and if it forms hard aspects with Jupiter or Venus, it indicates an overwhelming desire for luxury, and a superficial lifestyle with overdeveloped concern for appearences and sensual pleasures. Over-eating and over-drinking bring about ill-health.

N.B.: symbolic degrees belong to a branch of fatalistic astrology. Their interpretation must be regarded with the utmost caution, especially given the fact that different authors give different meanings to symbolic degrees. This is the reason why they are not included in our Astrotheme reports.

Sun opposite Uranus orb -8°30'
Mercury opposite Uranus orb -8°19'

Planets: Uranus

Uranus represents individual freedom, originality, independence, marginality, avant guard inspiration, ultra modernism. Fire is its element, it is dry, and it rules Aquarius, is in exaltation with Scorpio and is in analogy with the brain and the nerves.

It represents inventors, odd characters, revolutionaries.

Temperament : Nervous to the extreme

Characterology : Emotive, Active, Secondary type; it is a Passionate type.

Uranus in Pisces

The planet Uranus symbolizes originality, independence and cerebral energy bursting suddenly. Uranus triggers the irresistible need for freedom that we have in ourselves. Uranus tends to break the constraints that have become unbearable and gives us the courage and the will to get rid of what has become a burden; when he is well aspected, he also indicates genius. In your natal chart, Uranus’ house position is more important than his sign position because, like Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto, he is a slow planet. Many people born in the same period have Uranus in the same sign. This is the reason why the sign occupied here is less meaningful than when it is occupied by the so-called fast planets, i.e. the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars. Therefore, some caution is to be exercised as you read what follows. The sign positions of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto have a collective meaning. They do not influence your personality, unless they are involved in numerous aspects or when they emphasize a personal point of your natal chart such as your Ascendant’s ruler, an angular planet, i.e. a planet near the Ascendant, the Midheaven, the Nadir or the Descendant. In such cases, the activity of the slow planet is very highlighted. Uranus in Pisces brings about sudden and spasmodic waves of emotions. You may be overwhelmed by feelings that creep over you, although they are inevitably filtered by your intellect: this is quite a peculiar configuration, indeed, made of cerebral-ness and inspiration.

Uranus Dominant

If Uranus is part of your natal chart's planetary dominants, in astrology, you are said to be a Uranian: personal values are prevailing. Inner certainties fuel an inflexible will and a desire to call attention on yourself as well as to follow your beliefs through. This planet prompts you to behave with determination, to put forward your own truth, and to start your personal revolution. More than other people, you are willing to keep some degree of autonomy in all circumstances, and you often display an individualistic nature. In order to achieve your ideal of freedom and independence, you may act like a despot as you try to convince and to impose your views, whether smoothly or forcefully. Regardless of the flexibility of your comportment, some situations demand an absolute firmness as well as uncompromising, frank and straightforward attitudes. People may criticise you for your intransigence and say that you are a hardliner. Outsider's opinions don't matter! The most important thing is that you act in all conscience and reach your primary objectives. More than anyone else, you know how to use your willpower and to focus your energy on a precise aim, relentlessly, whatever the consequences might be. In the chapter of qualities, let's mention a definite sense of responsibility, an innovative mind open to techniques and modern ideas, as well as a natural self-discipline which overcomes many an obstacle. Therefore, people are well-advised not to hound you into a corner.

Interpretation of the 0° Pisces symbolic degree

"A human being, half-male and half-female, stands in front of an office door. Nearby, a young couple is about to take place at a table where a sumptuous meal is served." (Janduz version)

Pleasant, sociable, and loyal character. One always readily adjusts to the members of one's entourage in order to create harmonious living conditions. This applies particularly to conjugal life. One can achieve success in business or in the arts. Associations are highly favoured because, as symbolised by the first personage of the image, one knows perfectly well how to blend opposite elements and turn them into complementary assets.

Planets: Neptune

Neptune represents escapism, impressionability, daydreaming, delusions, carelessness, deception or intuition, dishonesty or inspiration, telepathy. Water is its element, it is moist, it rules Pisces, is in exaltation in Cancer, though some authors say it is Leo, and is in analogy with the vegetative system.

It represents dreamers, mediums, magicians, merchants of illusion, drug addicts.

Temperament : rather Lymphatic

Characterology : Emotive, non Active, Primary or Secondary type; it is a Sentimental, or sometimes Amorphous type.

Neptune in Leo

The planet Neptune symbolizes extreme receptivity, intense emotional sharpness, impressionability and inspiration; it is the planet of mediums, mystics and religious faith. In an astrological chart, it indicates dilution, vagueness, understanding one’s environment through emotions and the absence of clear and determined limits and structures. In your natal chart, Neptune’s house position is more important than his sign position because, like Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Pluto, he is a slow planet. Many people born in the same period have Neptune in the same sign. This is the reason why the sign occupied here is less meaningful than when it is occupied by the so-called fast planets, i.e. the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars. Therefore, some caution is to be exercised as you read what follows. The sign positions of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto have a collective meaning. They do not influence your personality, unless they are involved in numerous aspects or when they emphasize a personal point of your natal chart such as your Ascendant’s ruler, an angular planet, i.e. a planet near the Ascendant, the Midheaven, the Nadir or the Descendant. In such cases, the activity of the slow planet is very highlighted. Neptune in Leo endows you with creativity in the fields of arts or literature. Your emotions are noble and idealized.

Neptune Dominant

If Neptune is part of your natal chart's planetary dominants, in astrology, you are said to be a Neptunian: your intuition is highly developed. You are of a contemplative nature, and you are particularly receptive to ambiances, places, and people. You gladly cultivate the art of letting-go, and you allow the natural unfolding of events to construct your world. You follow your inspirations, for better or for worse. At times, you display an extraordinary clairvoyance gift. You seem to be able to read your subconscious like a book, and you track down subtle underlying mechanisms, flaws, or open breaches. This innate intuition might explain the strokes of good luck which the Neptunian is sometimes credited with. However, you may also be the victim of illusions and misleading intuitions. You are an idealist, and you let your deepest aspirations prevail over the realities of the moment. Then, you set off in quest of some quixotic objective, living like a Don Quixote who relentlessly pursues an impossible dream. You have a great talent for psychology and the mysteries of the human soul. Since you instinctively perceive people's intents and motivations, as you swim in the complexity of human nature, you feel in your element. The subtlety of your perceptiveness is the source of both special affections and irrevocable rejections. What is the danger of such a dominant? If it is not offset by other influences in your natal chart, you may not have an iron will. Your trump card is your instinct, which may be developed to the extent that it becomes clairvoyance.

Interpretation of the 9° Leo symbolic degree

"A skeleton hangs at the branch of a storm-stricken oak." (Janduz version)

Fundamentally courageous and altruistic character, though short-tempered and melancholic. One readily works to help other people, even though one knows that no profit is to be expected in return. Indeed, one believes that inner riches and spiritual advancement are invaluable. Skin and fur trade is very favoured. This degree indicates that physical dangers come from transportation and sport. Hunting is strongly advised against.

Pluto Aspects
Moon square Pluto orb -2°08'
Sun semi-square Pluto orb -0°40'
Mercury semi-square Pluto orb -0°30'
Uranus trine Pluto orb +7°10'
Planets: Pluto

Pluto represents deep transformations, mutations and eliminations, sexuality and magnetism, power and secrets, destruction with a view to regeneration, the phoenix rising from the ashes. Its element is indefinite; burning (like lava in fusion ?), it rules Scorpio, is in exaltation in Pisces and is in analogy with the sexual organs and excretion.

It represents dictators, sadistic people, violent characters, is instinctive and powerful but also mysterious with hidden strengths.

Temperament : rather Bilious

Characterology : Emotive or non-Emotive, Active, Primary type; it is a Passionate Choleri typec.

Pluto in Cancer

The planet Pluto symbolizes deep disruptions and upheavals, domination and sexual instincts, and the inner power we have in ourselves. Pluto destroys in order to reconstruct and he provokes painful crises that are needed in metamorphosis. Pluto is our deepest instincts’ brutal force. It is the hidden and unconscious violence that can explode in us with incredible intensity before being projected in our actions; in itself, the planet is not negative: the might and the intensity of its energy are beyond the conceivable but it can be funnelled. Pluto is the only possibility we have at our disposal to overcome our inner blocks and to eliminate outgrown situations that have become inextricable. Pluto’s energy is valuable because of its usefulness for the irreversible destruction of what constitutes a problem and not because of its negative side and its perversity. Pluto allows to reconstruct and to regenerate parts of our personality or whole stretches of our life, provided that we manage to funnel his wild energy and to step back. It is impossible to tame this energy, given its essence. However, it is possible to take advantage of it for a precise aim, through a temporary identification of some parts of us with this energy. In such a case, the outcome is our final evolution and even, our transformation. In your natal chart, Pluto’s house position is more important than his sign position because, like Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, Pluto is a slow planet. Many people born in the same period have Pluto in the same sign. This is the reason why the sign occupied here is less meaningful than when it is occupied by the so-called fast planets, i.e. the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars. Therefore, some caution is to be exercised as you read what follows. The sign positions of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto have a collective meaning. They do not influence your personality and they are not to be really taken into account, unless they are involved in numerous aspects or when they emphasize a personal point of your natal chart such as your Ascendant’s ruler, an angular planet, i.e. a planet near the Ascendant, the Midheaven, the Nadir or the Descendant. In such cases, the activity of the slow planet is very highlighted. Pluto in Cancer may create troubles in your home because your will to control is too strong or because you are exceedingly sensitive.

Pluto Dominant

If Pluto is part of your natal chart's planetary dominants, in astrology, you are said to be a Plutonian: you sometimes feel like a foreigner who does not belong to the world, to its laws, and its concerns. The rules of life in society are not necessarily yours. You are interested in what is unknown and in the subtle laws of a hidden order. So, you take malicious pleasure in ridiculing the patterns you find too simplistic or too rigid. You also revel in underlining the limits of explanations you deem too common. There is something unconventional about the way you are, the way you think, and the way you act. What is your specificity made of? Is it an extraordinary partner? A life off the beaten path? Or do you only distance yourself from conventional morals? In any case, you have the feeling, sometimes quite vague, that you come from nowhere, and that you do not belong to any definite group... In short, it means that you cannot be simplified in order to conform to existing models. The gap between you and ordinary mortals is also an element of your strength. Your deep clear-sightedness, firstly, enables you to put things into perspective and to grant them only the attention they deserve. Your other remarkable asset is your capacity to intervene from behind the scenes, to secretly organise events, and to bring about the desirable outcome without seeming to impose or to dictate anything. However, you must still overcome one of the major difficulties of this dominant, which is to get people to accept your difference and to smoothly fit into your environment.

Interpretation of the 7° Cancer symbolic degree

"A young woman hidden in a Temple of Love stares fearlessly at a snake ready to pounce on a bird." (Janduz version)

Self-lenient and weak-willed character. One always listens to one's instincts. This degree indicates that the family life is unhappy and that secret relationships may result in marital breakdown. Good moral standards are indispensable.

Chiron 6°27' Я Aries
Asteroids: Chiron

Chiron is almost renowned and used everywhere. Most astrologers consider it as a kind of "mediator" between Saturn and outer planets. Consequently, Chiron is of Saturn's nature and at the same time is influenced by Uranus, the first slow-moving planet. Astrologically, it symbolizes wisdom, patience and the faculty to reduce others' sufferings: it is said to be the "great healer" of the zodiac. Like all the secondary bodies, it must be in close conjunction with planets or angles in order to fully express its action.

Interpretation of the 6° Aries symbolic degree

"Protected by the shadow of a wall, a fox runs along a quiet path towards the nearby wood." (Janduz version)

Cunning, secretive and vigilant character. One prefers to defend oneself without resorting to violence, and one reaches one's goals using a diplomacy which may border on lie. Since one loathes direct confrontations, one tries to get around problems. In situations of extreme danger, clever tricks or presence of mind are excellent tools to get out of tight spots. In most cases, one manages to get away with it, especially if, in the natal chart, Mercury is strong and rules Mars. Nevertheless, ruin is looming despite efforts to shelter one's wealth from bankruptcy.

Asteroids: Ceres

Ceres, the biggest of the four minor asteroids used besides Chiron, is associated with the mythological goddess of growing plants and harvest and also symbolizes physical constitution, vitality and fertility. She's also known as Demeter, according to the astrologer Zipporah Dobyns, linked to the symbolism of the mother but in a less emotive and more physical way than the Moon. Ceres is thought to be the ruler of Virgo, in exaltation in Gemini, in exile in Pisces and in fall in Sagittarius. Keywords associated with Ceres could be order, practical sense, worry, precision, modesty, method, sobriety, motherhood, fertility, the Earth: a kind of a more cerebral Moon...

True North Node 29°59' Я Scorpio
North Node

The North Node (True Node here) represents the goals that must be achieved during life, in the karmic sense according to some traditions. Its position in house indicates in what field an effort is necessary in order to evolve. The North Node is often called the Dragon's head, it is usually considered beneficial, a bit like Jupiter with the planets. The Lunar nodes are fictional points and not actual heavenly bodies: they are the intersections of the Moon with the Ecliptic (the path made by the Sun in its orbit as seen from the Earth). The axis of the Lunar nodes moves 19 degrees each year, namely a bit more than three minutes each day.

The South Node is diametrically opposed to the North Node, therefore it faces it (it's not drawn here, it's the same symbol but upside down). It symbolizes what has already been achieved or acquired, in a karmic sense: it's the past from which it's advised to move on in order to progress. The South Node is rather negative, of a Saturnian nature: the experience through suffering.

Interpretation of the 29° Scorpio symbolic degree

"A man reads a book at his desk with several samples of stone placed in front of him." (Janduz version)

Intelligent, studious, and loyal character. Success and fame can be achieved in sciences, literature, architecture, or economics. Owing to one's benevolence, honesty, and steadfastness, one attracts many friends. This degree often indicates a high level of erudition. There is a possible danger of accidents, explosions, or contamination.

True Lilith 11°33' Scorpio
Lilith

Lilith or the Dark Moon (True Lilith here) represents the uncrossable threshold, taboos, the individual's provocative and fascinating side, including on a sexual level. She symbolizes violence and "untameability", the radical and deep-seated refusal to submit. The keywords for Lilith can be sterility, sadism, perversity, castration, sadomasochism, eroticism, orgasm, forbidden fantasies, marginality, cruelty; redemption, illumination, rebelliousness... Lilith's opposite point is called Priapus; it is the Lunar perigee, the position where the Moon is closest to the Earth. It symbolizes man's primitive nature, the horror hidden in our deepest self; masochism, extreme sensuality, impulsiveness, irrationality and excess. Physically speaking, the Dark Moon is the focal point unoccupied by the Earth: it is not a concrete body but a mathematical point.

Interpretation of the 11° Scorpio symbolic degree

"A snake tries to get rid of a swarm of flies, in vain. In the background, an isolated house is surrounded by a clump of trees." (Janduz version)

Reserved, obsessive, and resourceful character. One is surrounded by enemies who claim compensation for an injustice which one is responsible for. This degree sometimes indicates that one is haunted by the remorse for an old mistake or by some secret tragedy.

N.B.: symbolic degrees belong to a branch of fatalistic astrology. Their interpretation must be regarded with the utmost caution, especially given the fact that different authors give different meanings to symbolic degrees. This is the reason why they are not included in our Astrotheme reports.

Part of Fortune

The Part of Fortune is an ancient concept, used by Ptolemy and other astrologers before him. Firstly, it has nothing to do with fortune! In modern astrology, it is actually used to enhance a planet or angle when in close conjunction with it: it thus amplifies the meaning associated to the point affected by its presence. It is calculated in the following way:

Part of Fortune = AS + Moon - Sun (it is the Moons position when the Sun rises)

The classical Part of Fortune, of which the calculus method is unchanged whether in a diurnal or nocturnal chart, is usually distinguished from the diurnal/nocturnal Part of Fortune which is calculated by the formula AS + Sun - Moon for a nocturnal chart, and AS + Moon - Sun in a diurnal chart.

We currently use the latter formula for our astrological programmes.

Ascendant or House I

The First House or Ascendant represents one's behaviour in the eyes of others, and also one's health. It corresponds to the way the individual acts in the world. It is the image of the personality seen by others and the person's visible behaviour expressed outwardly. The 1st House is in analogy with Aries and thus Mars too, and then the Sun. It is an angular house, the most important one with the Midheaven, maybe even more so due to its link with the body and health.

Midheaven or House X

The Tenth House still called the Midheaven, is the highest point amidst the houses, at the top of the chart, in the South, and relates to destiny in general and career (and not daily work as meant by the Sixth House). The Midheaven represents our achievements and goals in the social sphere, our social position in society, and becomes more and more important as we get older. It is in analogy with Capricorn and Saturn. The Tenth House is the most important angular house along with the Ascendant.

Biography of Gustave Dominici

Gustave Dominici, born August 15, 1919 in Digne, is a French farmer, a member of Dominici family.

Dominici Affair (source: http://www.guardian.co.uk/theguardian/2004/apr/17/weekend7.weekend8 )
The apparently random murder in August 1952 of the eminent British scientist Sir Jack Drummond, his wife Anne and their 10-year-old daughter Elizabeth during a holiday in Provence remains one of the most intractable crimes of the 20th century. In France, many consider the outcome of the case was a major miscarriage of justice. For five decades, L'Affaire Dominici - named after the alleged killer - has inspired articles, books, films, documentaries and websites. Now, as new theories about the crime continue to make headlines and gossip, the true identity of the killer may finally be established.
Police, alerted by a passerby, arrived at the murder scene at about 7am on August 5 1952. Sir Jack and Lady Drummond had been shot repeatedly as they camped overnight in a layby off a main road in the river Durance valley: he had tried to escape, and his body lay on the other side of the road from that of his wife, who had been gunned down beside their Hillman estate. Their daughter, who had probably tried to flee her attacker, too, was found bludgeoned to death farther away on the riverbank. There were no signs of a struggle. Neither Lady Drummond nor Elizabeth had been sexually assaulted and, although the contents of the car were disordered, little had been taken. Police found nothing to suggest who might have carried out the massacre, or why.

Nevertheless, a 77-year-old peasant, Gaston Dominici, was tried, convicted and sentenced to execution by guillotine. Half a century later, an unprecedented 12 million viewers -a fifth of the population - watched a two-part TV film last November, based on a recent book that not only claims Dominici was framed, but also identifies the likely killers.

Since then, thousands have signed a petition demanding a review of the case, and France's highest court of justice, the Garde des Sceaux, is soon expected to announce whether a new appeal by the Dominici family, to clear Gaston's name, has been granted. A 224-page "open letter" to President Chirac, it has also been published as a book by Gaston's grandson, Alain, and author William Reymond. Lettre Ouverte Pour La Révision makes plain their contention that Gaston's conviction was the result of bungled police procedures and a skewed trial.

Suspicion fell immediately on Gaston Dominici, a farmer living close to the crime scene, and on one of his sons, who first discovered the bodies. Gaston eventually admitted committing the triple murder, after being accused by two of his sons, but he later retracted his confession, which he claimed to have made solely to protect others in his family. He was brought to trial and, though subsequently reprieved, became the oldest Frenchman to face execution.

Meanwhile, a second possible explanation for the murders was inexplicably dismissed by investigators. This involved a gang of four violent criminals based in Germany, one of whom confessed in turn to German, French and British police to participating in the killings while en route to Marseille to carry out a robbery.

Sir Jack Drummond was a prominent scientist and news of the murders, which made headlines in Britain, shocked many politicians and academics who had worked with him. His pioneering studies into nutrition as a professor at University College London had led to his appointment as chief scientific adviser to the ministry of food during the war; in 1944 he was knighted for his work ensuring that the nation, and its troops, had a balanced diet. Two years later, he joined Boots, in Nottingham, as director of research.

In France, police combed the entire riviera coastline for the killer and extended their search north as far as Grenoble. The world's press besieged the hamlet of Lurs, close to the crime scene. Robbery was claimed to be the motive, and the discovery nearby of a discarded American semi-automatic carbine, similar to guns acquired by the wartime resistance or left behind by US troops during the liberation, suggested that the murderer was a local man. Superintendent Edmond Sebeille, from the Marseille flying squad, who was heading the investigation, confidently announced, "The weapon comes from the locality. It will speak and it will lead to the killer."

It had not been Sir Jack's original plan to visit Provence that August. But a cerebral haemorrhage some months earlier had forced him to cancel his attendance at a conference in Paris in April, and thence an agreed family trip to the riviera to stay with an old friend and colleague, Guy Marrian, professor of biochemistry at Edinburgh University, who, with his wife and daughters, had a villa in Villefranche-sur-Mer near Nice.

By July, however, Sir Jack was sufficiently recovered to take up the invitation to spend part of August with the Marrians. Elizabeth, the couple's only child, the centre of 61-year-old Jack's life, was particularly excited at the prospect. Sir Jack recorded in a note, "She is wild with joy at the idea of the trip we are going to take to France. She already has a mass of projects and itineraries, and a month would not be enough to visit the list of cities she has drawn up."

They left their home in Nottingham on Friday July 25 in their new Hillman, stopped off in London, then took the ferry to Dunkirk, arriving on Monday July 28. From there, they drove to Reims and Domrémy, where Elizabeth wanted to visit Joan of Arc's birthplace, then Aix-les-Bains and Digne, where they spent Thursday night at the Grand Hotel, before going on to Villefranche. In Digne, Elizabeth noticed a poster advertising a charlottade de corso - a bullfight in which the bull is not killed - for the coming Monday. She begged her parents that they should come back to see it. Eventually they agreed, booked tickets and carried on to Villefranche, where they spent the weekend with the Marrians.

On Monday August 4, the Drummonds left early for Digne, leaving at the villa their passports and most of their valuables. After attending the corso at 4pm, they had drinks at a cafe before saying goodbye to the manageress at the Grand Hotel. "It was very hot today, the night will certainly be delightful. We'll camp out," Sir Jack was heard to say on the way out. Leaving Digne at about 7pm, they took the N96 Marseille trunk road, a slightly circuitous route back to Villefranche that follows the Durance valley.

At about 6am on August 5, a factory worker, Jean-Marie Olivier, driving home after a night shift along the N96, was flagged down by a young man running out from the roadside. It was Gustave Dominici, who lived at his father's farm nearby. "I've just seen a dead body over there," said Gustave agitatedly, pointing towards the river. "There were shots in the night, others may have been killed. Go and tell the gendarmes."

Officers arriving an hour later were horrified by the carnage. A man riddled with bullet wounds lay on a grass verge on one side of the road, a campbed over his body. A green estate car was parked in a clearing under a large mulberry tree just off the other side of the road; its contents - including clothing, a child's exercise book marked "Summer holiday" and a hurricane lamp - were in disorder. Lying face down by the car was a middle-aged woman in a red-and-white floral dress, covered with a blanket; she, too, had been shot several times. Pools of blood were seeping into the ground. About 85 yards from the car, at the end of a footbridge over a railway line, a little girl in pyjamas lay stretched out in a copse by the river bank. Her head had been shattered by blows and was a mass of blood. According to the autopsy, "Handling her skull was like moving a bag of nuts. She could not have survived her injuries for more than several minutes."

Dr Henri Dragon, who first examined the bodies, noticed several odd features about the child's corpse. Although it appeared that she had tried to flee her attacker, running along the stony path towards the copse, the soles of her feet were clean and unmarked. Had she perhaps been carried there after being murdered? Although her parents' bodies were already in a state of rigor mortis, Elizabeth's limbs remained more pliable, indicating, said Dragon, that she could have died two or three hours after them. So was she kidnapped before being murdered?

Police naturally assumed that the inhabitants of the farm, less than 200 yards from the scene, would provide some clues. Instead, they drew a blank. The inaptly named Grande Terre, a small, run-down stone house on a narrow strip of land planted with olives and alfalfa, had belonged since 1932 to 75-year-old Gaston Dominici, the mustachioed patriarch of the 28-strong Dominici "clan". Old Gaston, who now left the running of the farm to his son, Gustave, was a respected pillar of the community. He and his wife Marie lived at the farm with Gustave, his wife Yvette and baby Alain.

None of them had much to say about the night's events. They had seen the Drummonds arriving at the layby at about 8pm and, from the car's registration, knew they were English. By 10pm, the Dominicis said they were all in bed, but were woken at about 1am by gunshots. The baby awoke, and Yvette fed him before going back to sleep. Incredibly, no one had glanced out of a window or gone to see if anything was wrong, asserting first that they were frightened, then claiming that shots in the night were not unusual given the number of poachers in the area.

At 5.30am, Gustave went out into a nearby field, noticed the child's body by the river bank and ran to the road for help. He claimed neither to have seen the other bodies nor to have gone over to the Hillman, explaining that he was "afraid the parents had killed their child" or "the murderer might be hiding nearby". Gaston had left home at 5am, taking his herd of goats in the opposite direction from the campsite; the first he knew of the crime, he said, was when Gustave and Yvette told him about it at 8am.

At the crime scene, police committed an extraordinary number of elementary and irremediable blunders. The Marseille CID team was delayed by almost a day because officers were on holiday. In nearby Nice, the flying squad was too understaffed to take on the investigation. Arriving at Lurs after 5pm, Superintendent Sebeille failed to seal off the area, where passersby, reporters, photographers and the Dominici family and their friends roamed freely. Little original evidence remained intact. Fresh footprints near the car were trampled on; fingerprints from the car were taken after it had been touched by onlookers; the family's possessions had been moved around. The bodies, beginning to decompose in the fierce August heat, had already gone, rapidly removed to the morgue for an autopsy. Two days later, the Drummonds were buried in the local cemetery at the nearby town of Forcalquier.

Even after Sebeille's arrival, evidence continued to be overlooked or mislaid - to the dismay of Sir Jack's godson, Michael Austin-Smith, who visited the scene the following day. "Mike described it as indescribable chaos," recalls his widow, Inette Austin-Smith. "The place was teeming with people. He was horrified at the failure of police to restrain them."

Neither a pair of Gaston's newly washed trousers hanging in the yard, nor a pair of Gustave's drying elsewhere, were examined for possible traces of blood, even though police knew that the farm's laundry was usually done elsewhere by a relative. A three-inch clump of flesh stuck to the rear bumper of the Hillman seemed to have been torn from Sir Jack's hand as he grabbed the car after being shot; although set aside for forensic tests, it disappeared.

The discovery in the river of a broken stock and barrel from a gun was hailed as a breakthrough. Covered in grease, and therefore possibly still bearing the murderer's fingerprints, the gun was handled by bystanders and never tested for fingerprints. A chip of wood found near Elizabeth's body exactly fitted the splintered butt: when shattering her head with the butt, the murderer had evidently wielded enough force to break it. Later, Gaston insisted he had handed another chip to police, saying he had found it by her head. This, too, had gone missing. Even so, Sebeille triumphantly told reporters, the gun would lead them to the killer: "The murderer isn't far away. At the moment, the monster of Lurs is hiding in the region. He is watching and listening to us. He won't escape."

The gun did seem to be the murder weapon. Several spent and undischarged cartridges found near the bodies fitted it exactly. It was a self-loading, semi-automatic US army carbine marked US-M1 Rock-Ola, but little effort was made to trace its origins. Almost every local peasant owned a collection of similar rifles and submachine guns, acquired during the resistance or the liberation and now used to shoot large game. Yet none of the Dominicis claimed to own or have ever seen the Rock-Ola.

No one who had driven past the scene between 11pm and 6am came up with a lead. Some had noticed the Hillman parked in the layby, but, seeing bodies and campbeds, had assumed the campers were asleep. Two passing lorry drivers saw a large, threatening-looking man, possibly armed, by the roadside at about 1am, but the description led nowhere.

From the outset, Sebeille was convinced someone living at Grande Terre was involved. But, when questioned, the Dominicis appeared uncooperative. Why did they swear that they had had no contact with the Drummonds, even though Gaston's 17-year-old grandson claimed the English family had called at the farm to ask for water? What made old Gaston blurt out that Lady Drummond "died instantly" when he supposedly knew nothing of the murders?

In the first French crime to attract huge media coverage, the Drummond tragedy was soon eclipsed by the dark, unfolding drama of the Dominici clan, increasingly depicted as victims of police prejudice. Some observers argued that the family's shifty behaviour was probably due to shock and panic, as they realised they were likely to become suspects. Another explanation for their lies is that they suspected each other of committing the murder. According to the leftwing press, the Marseille CID focused their investigation almost exclusively on the Dominicis, partly because of the perceived Maquis "outlaw culture" of these rural pockets of wartime resistance and partly because of their communist sympathies. Intimidated by Sebeille, a big-town superflic whom the press dubbed Le Maigret de Marseilles, the Dominicis closed ranks.

Finally, an apparent conspiracy began to unravel. In October, another leading suspect, a close communist friend of the Dominicis, Paul Maillet, revealed that Gustave had told him and the family that Elizabeth was still alive when he discovered her body. Gustave was promptly arrested, tried and sentenced to two months' imprisonment for "failing to give assistance to a person in mortal peril". Almost a year later, in November 1953, after lengthy interrogation of all the Dominicis, police learned that everyone at the farm had heard screams and gunfire at about 1am, and that Gustave had visited the campsite several times, moving Lady Drummond's body, supposedly to see if she was alive but, in fact, because he was searching for cartridges in case they were from one of his father's guns. Later, Gustave and his elder brother Clovis independently confessed that their father had come into the house after 1am on August 5 and said, "I have killed the English." After two days in custody, Gaston, while chatting to a young gendarme who was guarding him, casually admitted his guilt.

"The Monster Of Lurs Unmasked" screamed the next day's headlines. But several aspects of Gaston's confession were wholly implausible. He explained that it had been a tragic accident, a "crime of passion". Late at night, he had gone outdoors and happened to take the carbine with him. Near the Drummonds' encampment, he hid in the shadows, watching Lady Drummond undress, and became aroused. Eventually, he made advances to her, she responded and they began having sex, when Sir Jack woke up and angrily confronted him. In his statement, Gaston claimed, "I picked up the carbine . . . the man tried to disarm me by seizing the barrel. I lost my head and pulled the trigger. The bullet pierced his hand, which forced him to let go. He ran to the edge of the road and I fired at him twice more. The woman was screaming, and I then fired at her once . . . I noticed the little girl, who was running towards the river. I fired my last bullet at her, but missed. I ran after her and I found her kneeling. I struck her on top of the head once with the butt of the gun. The carbine broke at the first blow."

Apart from the preposterous notion of a sexual encounter, there were major inaccuracies in Gaston's story: no burn marks were found on Sir Jack's hand, and his wife was hit by at least three bullets; Elizabeth sustained not one but several blows to the forehead; the force and angle at which she was struck indicated she was not kneeling but lying down. There was also the mystery of the clothes: if Gaston watched Lady Drummond undress, why was she found fully clothed? Most disconcertingly, he seemed unfamiliar with the carbine and its automatic action, and repeatedly mimed the unnecessary reloading of it after each imaginary shot.

Eventually, Gaston retracted his confession, saying that, although innocent, being old, he was prepared to sacrifice himself to protect others - by implication Gustave - and safeguard the honour of his grandchildren. Although Gustave also withdrew his accusation, alleging that he had caved in under police pressure, his older brother Clovis, who had fallen out with their father, never deviated from his story.

Throughout 1954, Gaston alternately confessed, then reasserted his innocence, while prosecutors failed to come up with a shred of hard evidence against him. He was sent for trial on November 17 in the tiny, packed courtroom of the Palais de Justice in Digne. The prosecution case was scant, while information consistent with his innocence was alternately withheld, poorly presented by the defence, or peremptorily dismissed as unimportant by the judge, who seemed intent on securing a conviction.

Eleven days later, Gaston was found guilty and sentenced to execution by guillotine. Public outrage prompted the ministry of justice to take the unprecedented step of appointing two senior commissioners from the Paris Sûreté, to conduct a second inquiry. Although Gaston continued to protest his innocence, insisting he saw Gustave and someone else carrying Elizabeth's body across the alfalfa field before dawn on August 5, that inquiry, yielding nothing new, ended in 1956. In 1957, Gaston's death sentence was commuted to life with hard labour, and in 1960 he was set free on compassionate grounds by President de Gaulle. He died in 1965, aged 88, in a hospice in Digne.

Although Gustave and Yvette divorced, they repeatedly appealed against Gaston's conviction, without success. Gustave, a broken man, died in 1996, after years of alcoholism. Yvette, now 72, has become reclusive, leaving a new generation to fight for justice. Alain Dominici, Gustave's eldest son, now 52, assisted author William Reymond in his research for the book Dominici Non Coupable: Les Assassins Retrouvés, published in 1997, which first documented the extent of the miscarriage; he still sounds bitter. "De Gaulle wouldn't have released a child-killer. I know my grandfather was innocent, and I am proud of my name. Still, many still believe a vice runs in our blood," he says. As a child, he was bullied at primary school and barred from attending the lycée in Digne. "The head told my mother, 'The name Dominici presents too many problems.' Listen, even today, some fathers forbid their daughters to go out with anyone called Dominici."

The open letter currently in front of the appeal court makes disturbing reading. That both his books have been met with outrage and disbelief is no surprise to Reymond. "What I discovered was a huge shock . . . My belief in French justice was pure naivety," he says as we meet in Digne near the old hilltop prison where Gaston was once imprisoned. What appalled Reymond, a soft-spoken man in his mid-30s, who gained access to the official file through defence lawyers, was how much evidence had been suppressed. "There were some very precise footprints near Elizabeth's body: they were immediately photographed, sketched, measured. A report on August 5 by the local police chief states that they were made by crepe-soled shoes with holes at the heel and on the sole, and gives the exact pattern and dimensions. They were completely different from Gaston's bigger, old hobnailed boots or Gustave's shoes. At the trial, Superintendent Sebeille lied, saying these footprints were too faint to be photographed."

Neither the autopsy nor the forensic report proves that Sir Jack or Lady Drummond was killed by bullets from the Rock-Ola, or that they were even killed by a single weapon. "The bullets were not found. The autopsy shows different sized entry wounds, and Lady Drummond was shot from the left and right, so there may have been more than one killer . . . The reconstruction was like a bad Feydeau farce. I have a film, made secretly by a reporter. The 'official' motive for the crime, that Lady Drummond and Gaston had sex before he had a violent struggle with the husband, is ridiculous. He walked with a cane, found it hard to get up from the ground, wore pants without flies held up by a long cord. How would he have handled a carbine as well?"

The prosecution's claim that Gaston shot Sir Jack as he grasped the barrel of the gun remains unsubstantiated. "Drummond's hand had no powder burns. The defence wanted to examine the lump of flesh on the car bumper for powder. Sebeille claimed one of the two doctors who carried out the autopsy lost it." However, in 1970, Sebeille admitted hiding the sample in a matchbox that he kept in his pocket. Subsequently Reymond discovered a secret file kept in a local government building next to the palace of justice. The file contained items reportedly "lost" in the investigation: a chip from the broken butt of the carbine; a badly crushed bullet; an undischarged cartridge; a pair of girl's bloodstained knickers - if they were Elizabeth's, no one knows how they became bloodstained. "The underpants were photographed but then disappeared - during the second inquiry, Paris investigators endlessly searched for them, to test the bloodstains, in case they were from Gustave, whom they suspected of the murder," says Reymond.

An even darker cover-up has emerged through Reymond's discovery, in Germany, of official documents excluded from files on the Drummond investigation. These reveal that, soon after the murders, a German prisoner admitted involvement in the crime which, he claimed, had been committed by three fellow criminals, a Greek, a Spaniard and a Swiss, who had hired him as a driver on August 4 to take them to Marseille where they planned to rob a jeweller's store. All four were wanted by the German police and had admitted carrying out "contract work" for a communist organisation in Frankfurt.

In a report dated November 24 1952, sent by Commissioner Charles Gillard to his superior, the director of criminal affairs at the French ministry of the interior, Gillard states he had been summoned urgently by the French Sûreté in Baden-Baden (then in the French-controlled zone) to interrogate Wilhelm Bartkowski, arrested in Germany on August 9 and then serving a 12-year sentence near Stuttgart for 71 crimes, including armed robberies. Gillard enclosed Bartkowski's statement, reporting that, in his view, it contained a number of details about the murders that Bartkowski was unlikely to have picked up from reports of the crime in the German press.

According to Reymond, who also has a copy of Bartkowski's first statement, Gillard was right: "Bartkowski's three accomplices asked him to drive them from south-west Germany to Provence. They reached the area after dark. Although unknown to him, he described the landscape, specific features along the N96, including its many curves and a crossroads near Digne, and the location of Grande Terre." He was told to pull up at the roadside after midnight. He noticed, farther back, a faint glow, like a hurricane lamp, near a parked estate car, and the outline of a house. The three others took their guns, including a rifle that Bartkowski believed was a carbine, and went over to the area. Minutes later he heard several bursts of gunfire and a woman's or child's groans.

The three returned with all their guns - except the carbine. Driving back to Germany, Bartkowski asked whom they had killed. The men said only, "They are English, the man was a scientist." They showed him their booty, including a wallet containing francs and foreign currency. What especially impressed Bartkowski was an intricate gold ring: on it was mounted a square watch with bevelled edges. His meticulous description of the ring, including 15 ornately engraved characters inside, has convinced Reymond that he was telling the truth. "I have seen letters from Lady Drummond's mother, Constance Wilbraham, to her French lawyers, asking for her daughter's possessions. She gave precise descriptions of a ring identical to that described by Bartkowski."

Recently, Reymond found further evidence to corroborate the story. A bus driver recalled that on August 4 his coach was festooned with multicoloured lights and packed with merrymakers returning from a local festival. At 1am on the N96, near the murder scene, he noticed a large, light-coloured American car; beside it, a man was urinating. "Bartkowski saw a crowded bus, with many lamps, passing his lilac Buick, just as he went for a pee." The tall, dark, sinister-looking man, described in 1952 by the two lorry drivers, fits the image of the Greek member of the gang.

Given the seriousness with which German police and Gillard regarded Bartkowski's confession, one would assume this news would have been relayed promptly to the British authorities. But it was not until October 8 1953 that the Foreign Office in London received an encrypted memo marked "priority/secret" from Sir Frederick Hoyer Millar, the UK high commissioner in Bonn, stating that a German prisoner had been interviewed by an officer of the special investigation branch (SIB) Rhine army. Bartkowski had confessed to the murder of Elizabeth Drummond, and to being an accessory to the murder of her parents. The information had been passed to the Home Office and, according to Sir Frederick, "the confession may well be genuine, since it is difficult to imagine that the criminal . . . a most cold-blooded type . . . could have invented such a convincing story".

In April 1965, Bartkowski's three accomplices were arrested in Germany: all admitted participation in the murders. Although a report of their statements was forwarded to the French authorities, again no action was taken. Bartkowski, now 78, lives in Germany, at an address known to Reymond, but there seems little likelihood that he will be contacted by the French authorities.

If Bartkowski's story is true, two pieces are still missing from the puzzle. What lay behind the Dominicis' admissions and accusations? And what was the gang's motive for the murder - was it just an unplanned robbery, committed on a whim, as they passed the campsite en route to the planned jewel heist in Marseille?

Reymond's own theory is that Sir Jack was the victim of a cold war communist plot because of his alleged activities as a British secret intelligence agent - a rumour that has been doing the rounds since 1952. But there is no evidence that Drummond was a spy. Although he had once worked at Porton Down, investigating contamination of food, it seems unlikely that he could have been involved in intelligence work after joining Boots in 1946. The possibility that his trip to France was not just a family holiday, but also an undercover mission to gain information about a chemicals factory near Lurs that produced toxic crop insecticides, which Sir Jack had allegedly visited before, in 1947, seems far-fetched. What seems beyond dispute, however, is that certain known facts have remained suppressed for half a century. Will any new investigation acknowledge the apparent injustice that could have sent an old peasant to be beheaded?

For two generations, in the Basses-Alpes of Provence, the name Dominici has been the mark of a bloodstained past. And in England, the achievements and reputation of a distinguished scientist have been overshadowed by the lurid circumstances of his death. Will justice now be seen to be done, for the Drummonds and for the Dominicis?

Introduction

N.B.: As this celebrity's birth time is unknown, the chart is drawn for 12:00 PM - the legal time for his/her place of birth; since astrological houses are not taken into account, this astrological profile excerpt is less detailed than those for which the birth time is known.

The dominant planets of Gustave Dominici

When interpreting a natal chart, the best method is to start gradually from general features to specific ones. Thus, there is usually a plan to be followed, from the overall analysis of the chart and its structure, to the description of its different character traits.

In the first part, an overall analysis of the chart enables us to figure out the personality's main features and to emphasize several points that are confirmed or not in the detailed analysis: in any case, those general traits are taken into account. Human personality is an infinitely intricate entity and describing it is a complex task. Claiming to rapidly summarize it is illusory, although it does not mean that it is an impossible challenge. It is essential to read a natal chart several times in order to absorb all its different meanings and to grasp all this complexity. But the exercise is worthwhile.

In brief, a natal chart is composed of ten planets: two luminaries, the Sun and the Moon, three fast-moving or individual planets, Mercury, Venus and Mars, two slow-moving planets, Jupiter and Saturn, and three very slow-moving planets, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Additional secondary elements are: the Lunar Nodes, the Dark Moon or Lilith, Chiron and other minor objects. They are all posited on the Zodiac wheel consisting of twelve signs, from Aries to Pisces, and divided into twelve astrological houses.

The first step is to evaluate the importance of each planet. This is what we call identifying the dominant planets. This process obeys rules that depend on the astrologer's sensitivity and experience but it also has precise and steady bases: thus, we can take into account the parameters of a planet's activity (the number of active aspects a planet forms, the importance of each aspect according to its nature and its exactness), angularity parameters; (proximity to the four angles, Ascendant, Midheaven, Descendant and Imum Coeli or Nadir, all of them being evaluated numerically, according to the kind of angle and the planet-angle distance) and quality parameters (rulership, exaltation, exile and fall). Finally, other criteria such as the rulership of the Ascendant and the Midheaven etc. are important.

These different criteria allow a planet to be highlighted and lead to useful conclusions when interpreting the chart.

The overall chart analysis begins with the observation of three sorts of planetary distributions in the chart: Eastern or Western hemisphere, Northern or Southern hemisphere, and quadrants (North-eastern, North-western, South-eastern and South-western). These three distributions give a general tone in terms of introversion and extraversion, willpower, sociability, and behavioural predispositions.

Then, there are three additional distributions: elements (called triplicity since there are three groups of signs for each one) - Fire, Air, Earth and Water - corresponding to a character typology, modality (or quadruplicity with four groups of signs for each one) - Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable - and polarity (Yin and Yang).

There are three types of dominants: dominant planets, dominant signs and dominant houses. The novice thinks astrology means only "to be Aries" or sometimes, for example, "to be Aries Ascendant Virgo". It is actually far more complex. Although the Sun and the Ascendant alone may reveal a large part of the character - approximately a third or a half of your psychological signature, a person is neither "just the Sun" (called the sign) nor just "the first house" (the Ascendant). Thus, a particular planet's influence may be significantly increased; a particular sign or house may contain a group of planets that will bring nuances and sometimes weaken the role of the Ascendant, of the Sun sign etc.

Lastly, there are two other criteria: accentuations (angular, succedent and cadent) which are a classification of astrological houses and types of decanates that are occupied (each sign is divided into three decanates of ten degrees each). They provide some additional informations.

These general character traits must not be taken literally; they are, somehow, preparing for the chart reading. They allow to understand the second part of the analysis, which is more detailed and precise. It focuses on every area of the personality and provides a synthesis of all the above-mentioned parameters according to sound hierarchical rules.

Warning: when the birth time is unknown, which is the case for Gustave Dominici, a few paragraphs become irrelevant; distributions in hemispheres and quadrants are meaningless, so are dominant houses and houses' accentuations. Therefore, some chapters are removed from this part.

For all paragraphs, the criteria for valuation are calculated without taking into account angles and rulerships of the Ascendant and of the Midheaven. The methodology retains its validity, but it is less precise without a time of birth.

Elements, Modalities and Polarities for Gustave Dominici

Gustave Dominici, Fire is dominant in your natal chart and endows you with intuition, energy, courage, self-confidence, and enthusiasm! You are inclined to be passionate, you assert your willpower, you move forward, and come hell or high water, you achieve your dreams and your goals. The relative weakness of this element is the difficulty to step back or a kind of boldness that may prompt you to do foolish things.

The predominance of Water signs indicates high sensitivity and elevation through feelings, Gustave Dominici. Your heart and your emotions are your driving forces, and you can't do anything on Earth if you don't feel a strong affective charge (as a matter of fact, the word "feeling" is essential in your psychology). You need to love in order to understand, and to feel in order to take action, which causes a certain vulnerability which you should fight against.

Air is under-represented in your natal chart, with only 0.00% instead of the average 25%. Air symbolizes the values of communication, exchanges with others, but also adaptability and flexibility abilities: if you don't get out of your cocoon to talk, to show interest in others, and to socialize, you may have problems understanding others. Because of your lack of flexibility or of your refusal to adapt yourself, you may be suddenly overwhelmed by events. You should get into the habit of talking, of phoning, and of thinking in terms of "mobility, flexibility, adaptability, change" in every circumstance. It will spare you so many troubles!

The twelve zodiacal signs are split up into three groups or modes, called quadruplicities, a learned word meaning only that these three groups include four signs. The Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable modes are more or less represented in your natal chart, depending on planets' positions and importance, and on angles in the twelve signs.

The Fixed mode corresponds to a majority of elements in your chart, Gustave Dominici, and represents the desire for security and durability: you are able to concretely appreciate a situation and its stability. You definitely prefer to play the role of a loyal, obstinate and hard-working person, rather than to try new and risky experiences - beware, however, not to confuse obstinacy with intransigence. You structure, cement, and strengthen everything you find on your way: it is your nature, although you are not especially interested in swiftness: slow and steady...

The twelve signs are divided into two polarities, called active or passive, or sometimes masculine and feminine, positive and negative, Yang and Yin. This classification corresponds to two quite distinct tonalities, the first one bringing extraversion, action, self-confidence and dynamism, the second one, introversion, reactivity, reflection and caution. None is superior to the other, each group has its own assets and shortcomings. Odd signs - Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius - belong to the first group, whereas even signs - Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces - belong to the second group.

N.B.: this dominant is a minor one. It is not essential that you read its meaning in the beginning. You can get back to them later on, once you have read more important interpretations.

According to the disposition and qualities of your planets and angles, you are rather influenced by Yang energy, the active polarity, Gustave Dominici: more concerned about actions than reflection, you sometimes rush without standing back and without the deepness that is needed. However, your spontaneity prompts you to take fresh starts, even after repeated failures caused by your rashness.

Each sign contains 30 degrees and can be divided into three equal parts: the decanates. The Tradition indicates that specific meanings can be associated to each of the three decanates. Their sphere of activity is usually limited to the Sun sign, however, it is even more interesting to observe the distribution of all the planets in the chart to get an idea of the respective importance of the three decanates, which can complement the description of the personality.

These meanings must be considered with the greatest caution. Indeed, they are minor characteristics that can only underline other outstanding traits of character.

Traditionally, the first decanate highlights the characteristics of the sign where a planet is located. The two other decanates correspond to sub-dominant planets, depending on the nature of each sign. This system leads to a multiplication of meanings and it is impossible to have a clear understanding: here, we prefer to give only the meaning of one decanate in comparison with the other two, within the birth chart as a whole. Again, the greatest caution is needed with regard to this minor indication as it is not always reliable: it is not essential that you read these texts in the beginning. You can get back to them later on, once you have read more important interpretations

The first decanate, which means the part between 0° and 10° of any zodiacal sign, prevails in your natal chart, Gustave Dominici: this decanate is traditionally linked to vitality and physical constitution, and may indicate that you efficiently express your concrete energy on the material and sensual planes.

Dominants: Planets, Signs and Houses for Gustave Dominici

The issue of dominant planets has existed since the mists of time in astrology: how nice it would be if a person could be described with a few words and one or several planets that would represent their character, without having to analyse such elements as rulerships, angularities, houses, etc!

The ten planets - the Sun throughout Pluto - are a bit like ten characters in a role-play, each one has its own personality, its own way of acting, its own strengths and weaknesses. They actually represent a classification into ten distinct personalities, and astrologers have always tried to associate one or several dominant planets to a natal chart as well as dominant signs and houses.

Indeed, it is quite the same situation with signs and houses. If planets symbolize characters, signs represent hues - the mental, emotional and physical structures of an individual. The sign in which a planet is posited is like a character whose features are modified according to the place where he lives. In a chart, there are usually one, two or three highlighted signs that allow to rapidly describe its owner.

Regarding astrological houses, the principle is even simpler: the twelve houses correspond to twelve fields of life, and planets tenanting any given house increase that house's importance and highlight all relevant life departments: it may be marriage, work, friendship etc.

In your natal chart, Gustave Dominici, the ten main planets are distributed as follows:

The three most important planets in your chart are Sun, Uranus and Moon.

One of the dominant planets in your natal chart is the Sun. He symbolizes will, magnetism, sense of honour and dignity. You are a Solar being, and you often display charismatic and leadership qualities. Your warmth and your persuasive power lead you far away from pettiness. You enjoy thinking big and, consequently, you move forward according to what you decide.

Your Solarian weakness may be related to the sin of pride or to excessive authority. The frontier between pride and vanity is tenuous: be careful not to overstep it and to keep the nobleness of heart that is part of your charm.

Uranus is among your dominant planets: just like Neptune and Pluto, Uranian typology is less clearly defined than the so-called classical seven planets that are visible to the naked eye, from the Sun to Saturn. However, it is possible to associate your Uranian nature with a few clear characteristics: Uranus rhymes with independence, freedom, originality, or even rebelliousness and marginality, when things go wrong...

Uranus is Mercury's higher octave and as such, he borrows some of its traits of character; namely, a tendency to intellectualize situations and emotions with affective detachment, or at least jagged affectivity.

Therefore, you are certainly a passionate man who is on the lookout for any kind of action or revolutionary idea, and you are keen on new things. Uranians are never predictable, and it is especially when they are believed to be stable and well settled that... they change everything - their life, partner, and job! In fact, you are allergic to any kind of routine, although avoiding it must give way to many risks.

The Moon is one of the most important planets in your chart and endows you with a receptive, emotive, and imaginative nature. You have an innate ability to instinctively absorb atmospheres and impressions that nurture you, and as a result, you are often dreaming your life away rather than actually living it.

One of the consequences of your spontaneity may turn into popularity, or even fame: the crowd is a living and complex entity, and it always appreciates truth and sincerity rather than calculation and total self-control.

As a Lunar character, you find it difficult to control yourself, you have to deal with your moods, and you must be careful not to stay passive in front of events: nothing is handed on a plate, and although your sensitivity is rich, even richer than most people's, you must make a move and spare some of your energy for... action!

In your natal chart, the three most important signs - according to criteria mentioned above - are in decreasing order of strength Leo, Aries and Cancer. In general, these signs are important because your Ascendant or your Sun is located there. But this is not always the case: there may be a cluster of planets, or a planet may be near an angle other than the Midheaven or Ascendant. It may also be because two or three planets are considered to be very active because they form numerous aspects from these signs.

Thus, you display some of the three signs' characteristics, a bit like a superposition of features on the rest of your chart, and it is all the more so if the sign is emphasized.

With Leo as a dominant sign, you naturally shine brightly. Your dignity, your sense of honour, and your generosity can almost turn you into a solar mythological hero, a knight or a lord from the ancient times. People may blame you for your selfishness, your pride or your somewhat loud authority, but if you are self-confident, kind-hearted and strong-willed, it surely makes up for your little flaws, as long as they remain moderate...

Arian blood runs through your veins! You have that enthusiasm, frankness, courage, and fastness which usually make you so likeable in spite of your somewhat rough, naive, or violent side. As a bonus, Aries' gushing fire always gives you the impetus to make a fresh start, should you stumble or undergo life hardship!

Cancer is one of your dominant signs and endows you with imagination and exceptionally shrewd sensitivity. Although suspicious at first sight - and even at second...- as soon as you get familiar with people and let them win your confidence, your golden heart eventually shows up, despite your discretion and your desire for security that make you return into your shell at the slightest alert! Actually, you are a poet and if you are sometimes blamed for your nostalgia and your laziness, it is because your intense inner life is at full throttle...

After this paragraph about dominant planets, of Gustave Dominici, here are the character traits that you must read more carefully than the previous texts since they are very specific: the texts about dominant planets only give background information about the personality and remain quite general: they emphasize or, on the contrary, mitigate different particularities or facets of a personality. A human being is a complex whole and only bodies of texts can attempt to successfully figure out all the finer points.

Your sensitivity

Your temperament is impulsive, Gustave Dominici, you are fond of instant thrills and you do not like to wait because you grow weary quickly. With you, things must keep moving fast! Your vivid imagination triggers enthusiasm, audacity and independence because you need to undertake and to achieve. You do not fear to be defeated and, far from slowing you down, rivalry and struggle have a stimulating effect. Because of your sensitivity all on edge, you are irascible and unpredictable: it is easy to unwillingly get you started and this makes your life a bit difficult with the family and with friends. You are perceived as an impatient person, short-tempered, whimsical, unstable and even, aggressive, and people think that you don't take your entourage's needs into account. However, you may also be warm, ready to help and to comfort whenever you are able to control your impulsiveness. You must not be worried about losing your identity when you listen more to your close friends...

Your intellect and your social life

Your intellectual and nervous energy is considerable, Gustave Dominici, with good concentration abilities and a strong determination. You have plenty of planning and organization skills and enthusiasm. Your helpfulness is deep and you never hesitate to solve other people's problems. You are thought of as a reliable person and you enjoy it very much. You believe in your own capacities and you tend to speak with a dramatic pomposity because you want to attract attention. People who do not share your opinion are in trouble! Your determination is strongest and you may show stubbornness and inflexibility because you do not easily accept it when your ideas or your actions are criticized. Some people believe that you assert yourself in an authoritarian and condescending way, but you are not aware of it and therefore, you keep on thinking that you are right.

Your affectivity and your seductiveness

In your chart, the Sun is in Leo, and Venus, in Virgo. Leo is in love with love, anxious to shine and to be up to any promising situation. On the other hand, Virgo is more anxious to organize her realm than to expand her territory; she needs to control the elements at her disposal rather than to enlarge her sphere of activity. These contradictions are probably reflected in your affective behaviours: whereas your ambitions and your models bring about an offensive mind and you are absorbed in your intense thirst for domination, your desires and your natural tendencies are more balanced and reserved. Therefore, the image you project may conceal your true nature, which is sentimental, sensitive, modest and vulnerable. It is part of your charm but it is also your Achilles' heel: quid pro quos may come from the image you strive to give of yourself because, inevitably, it is distorted by your will to unreasonably show off. Your natural dignity (commendable as long as it is not exaggerate) is much to your credit, but it may also be the source of misunderstandings. Does the person who loves you know your affective aspirations? Mutual trust is one of the fundamental keys to your fulfilment. When passion and wisdom get along well, you become able to give of your best.

Gustave Dominici, inside yourself, feelings are strong and powerful. However, you never show them before weighing up and considering all the possible consequences of your words and your actions: fieriness and spontaneousness are toned down because you cannot help controlling yourself, probably due to your modesty, your discretion or your shyness; you are frightened because you are so concerned with other people's opinion that you see passion, or expressing your feelings too quickly, as sources of danger. However, you are helpful, simple, and you do not fuss around. Reason prevails in your love life but your heart may flare up when the context is well organized and everyday life is cautiously handled with good sense, tidiness and cleanliness. Your sensitivity prompts you to avoid excesses and outbursts and this is how you think that you can achieve happiness without risk.

Your will and your inner motivations

Psychologically speaking, your nature is powerful and self-assured. You are a leader whose strength and nobleness naturally arouse your entourage’s respect and adherence and your legitimacy is unquestioned. Your sense of commandment, the honour your person constantly exudes, your prestige and your charisma is a whole which puts you into the spotlight wherever you go.

As you are born under this sign, you are proud, determined, wilful, loyal, solemn, generous, ambitious, courageous, heroic, full of vitality, creative, confident, seductive, happy, daring, proud, majestic, honest, magnanimous, charismatic, responsible, noble, brilliant, radiant, dramatic, affectionate, full of humour, demonstrative, swaggering and self-confident.You can also be domineering, conceited, touchy, authoritarian, stubborn, intolerant, self-centered, irascible, violent, and nonchalant.

In love, Sir, you are very demanding. You are a powerful and loyal lover. Your partner must be the most beautiful and the most brilliant person and she must make you feel that she admires you. In such a case, your generosity has no limit and you give your love without reservation, with nobleness, liberalities and luxury. You set up a stable and brilliant home where children have the essential part.

The main danger is that you value trust to the extent that you grant it generously but too hastily: if you happen to find out that your trust is misplaced, the whole world around you crumbles and the relationship is forever damaged. In this regard, you are cut-and-dried and you feel so hurt and humiliated that you seldom can forgive.

Another similar danger comes from the fact that your expectations are very high and it is very unlikely that real life offers such unconditional and lasting love: for this reason, it is not unusual that you never marry, all the more so because your self-centered character is not prone to self-questioning…

Your ability to take action

It is difficult to find a more sensitive person than you, Gustave Dominici. You are able to contain your aggressiveness and it may be hard for you to exteriorize your feelings. You are usually passive and you draw your strength from inertia and resistance more than from the will to take action. Your mood is changing, you show little of yourself and you may surprise with your inopportune reactions that come late, when people have forgotten what it was all about. The only area where you express yourself with zeal and where your actions are successful is the area of home or, more symbolically, in the fields where you can achieve security. In other words, you need to feel comfortable before you can move, in concrete matters as well as in sexuality.

Conclusion

This text is only an excerpt from of Gustave Dominici's portrait. We hope that it will arouse your curiosity, and that it will prompt you to deepen your knowledge of astrology, as well as to visit and use the wide range of free applications at www.astrotheme.com.

Astrological studies describe many of the character traits and they sometimes go deeper into the understanding of a personality. Please, always keep in mind that human beings are continuously evolving and that many parts of our psychological structures are likely to be expressed later, after having undergone significant life's experiences. It is advised to read a portrait with hindsight in order to appreciate its astrological content. Under this condition, you will be able to take full advantage of this type of study.

The analysis of an astrological portrait consists in understanding four types of elements which interact with one another: ten planets, twelve zodiacal signs, twelve houses, and what are called aspects between planets (the 11 aspects most commonly used are: conjunction, opposition, square, trine, sextile, quincunx, semi-sextile, sesqui-quadrate, quintile and bi-quintile. The first 5 aspects enumerated are called major aspects).

Planets represent typologies of our human psychology: sensitivity, affectivity, ability to undertake, will-power, mental process, aptitude, and taste for communication etc., all independent character facets are divided here for practical reasons. The twelve signs forming the space where planets move will "colour", so to speak, these typologies with each planet being located in its particular sign. They will then enrich the quality of these typologies, as expressed by the planets. The Zodiac is also divided into twelve astrological houses. This makes sense only if the birth time is known because within a few minutes, the twelve houses (including the 1st one, the Ascendant) change significantly. They correspond to twelve specific spheres of life: external behaviour, material, social and family life, relationship, home, love life, daily work, partnership, etc. Each planet located in any given house will then act according to the meaning of its house, and a second colouration again enriches those active forces that the planets symbolize. Finally, relations will settle among planets, creating a third structure, which completes the planets' basic meanings. A set of ancient rules, which has stood the test of experience over hundreds of years (although astrology is in evolution, only reliable elements are integrated into classical studies), are applied to organize the whole chart into a hierarchy and to allow your personality to be interpreted by texts. The planets usually analysed are the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, which means two luminaries (the Sun and the Moon) and 8 planets, a total of 10 planets. Additional secondary elements may be taken into account, such as asteroids Chiron, Vesta, Pallas, Ceres (especially Chiron, more well-known), the Lunar nodes, the Dark Moon or Lilith, and even other bodies: astrology is a discipline on the move. Astrological studies, including astrological portrait, compatibility of couples, predictive work, and horoscopes evolve and become more accurate or deeper, as time goes by.

Precision: concerning the horoscopes with a known time of birth, according to the Tradition, we consider that a planet near the beginning (called cuspide) of the next house (less than 2 degrees for the Ascendant and the Midheaven, and less than 1 degree for all other houses) belongs to this house: our texts and dominants take this rule into account. You can also choose not to take this shift into account in the form, and also tick the option Koch or Equal houses system instead of Placidus, the default houses system.

Warning: In order to avoid any confusion and any possible controversy, we want to draw your attention upon the fact that this sample of celebrities is very complete and therefore, it also includes undesirable people, since every category is represented: beside artists, musicians, politicians, lawyers, professional soldiers, poets, writers, singers, explorers, scientists, academics, religious figures, saints, philosophers, sages, astrologers, mediums, sportsmen, chess champions, famous victims, historical characters, members of royal families, models, painters, sculptors, and comics authors or other actual celebrities, there are also famous murderers, tyrants and dictators, serial-killers, or other characters whose image is very negative, often rightly so.

Regarding the latter, it must be remembered that even a monster or at least a person who perpetrated odious crimes, has some human qualities, often noticed by his/her close entourage: these excerpts come from computer programmes devoid of polemical intentions and may seem too soft or lenient. The positive side of each personality is deliberately stressed. Negative sides have been erased here - it is not the same in our comprehensive reports on sale - because it could hurt the families of such people. We are hoping that it will not rebound on the victims' side.

Numerology: Birth Path of Gustave Dominici

Testimonies to numerology are found in the most ancient civilizations and show that numerology pre-dates astrology. This discipline considers the name, the surname, and the date of birth, and ascribes a meaning to alphabetic letters according to the numbers which symbolise them.

The path of life, based on the date of birth, provides indications on the kind of destiny which one is meant to experience. It is one of the elements that must reckoned with, along with the expression number, the active number, the intimacy number, the achievement number, the hereditary number, the dominant numbers or the lacking numbers, or also the area of expression, etc.

Your Birth Path:

Your Life Path is influenced by the number 7, and indicates that your destiny is marked with spiritual life, research, and introversion. This number prompts you to steer clear from commonly accepted values. You search for wisdom, sometimes at the cost of some degree of solitude. It may translate into curiosity or a keen interest in metaphysics, religion, or spirituality. Or else, the will to follow a personal path off the beaten path and to build a specific destiny for yourself. Your life is an initiation journey, and worldly vagaries are unable to make you turn away from your research. If the quest for a certain form of the absolute proves to be a powerful factor of creativity, your progression tolerates no easy solutions. The danger is that, owing to your need for independence, you may come across as an exceedingly cold and rigid person. It is all the more so because the number 7 marks extraordinary destinies which sometimes demand sacrifices, particularly on the material or interpersonal areas.

Gustave Dominici was born under the sign of the Goat, element Earth

Chinese astrology is brought to us as a legacy of age-old wisdom and invites us to develop an awareness of our inner potential. It is believed that the wise man is not subjected to stellar influences. However, we must gain the lucidity and the distance without which we remain locked up in an implacable destiny. According to the legend of the Circle of Animals, Buddha summoned all the animals to bid them farewell before he left our world. Only twelve species answered Buddha's call. They form the Chinese Zodiac and symbolize the twelve paths of wisdom that are still valid nowadays.

The Asian wise man considers that a path is neither good nor bad. One can and must develop one's potentialities. The first step is to thoroughly know oneself.

Your nature is peaceful and sensitive to the harmony of your private realm, to beauty and aestheticism. You are enthusiastic and you strive to give your life a playful, refined and cosy dimension.

Thus, insouciance is found among your flaws: practical constraints are of no concern to you. You can have a comfortable life, but you must choose to surround yourself with persons who are endowed with the sense of reality which you are lacking.

As a matter of rule, you loathe tedious works, repetitive tasks and daily chores. You react to monotony with charm and fantasy. No doubt that few people can resist your undeniable gracefulness, your coaxing moods and your whims.

You manage to be listened to and to be understood. There is an indisputable laziness in you: you prefer to get round problems rather than to face them with courage and determination.

However, this relative indolence benefits you in many instances. The force of inertia principle is well-known. As time goes by, you will establish a reputation as a sociable person, of course quite unpredictable, but so charming. Your somewhat flighty side and your loose behaviour are forgiven, whereas under other circumstances, they would have been condemned. Anyway, you know how to forge efficient supports and unfailing protections.

Chinese astrology has five elements, which are referred to as agents: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal and Water.

You have a deep affinity with the agent Earth. In China, this element corresponds to the planet Saturn, the yellow colour and the number 5.

You are realistic, often cautious, and you plan your life carefully, leaving nothing to chance and handling situations pragmatically. The objectivity you display can but prevent you from being caught into traps and illusions. Therefore, you are a very reassuring person to your entourage: they readily rely on your sense of reality.

Far be it from you to take an interest in fancy projects or chimeras that appeal to a good many people! It is important that you retain only sound viewpoints and orientations, as well as elements that have proved their worth.

Of course, you still have to show a bit of fantasy: some inconsiderate risks may prove to pay off and hare-brained ideas, as trivial as may be, may bring an undeniable pleasantness into a dull and stiff routine. Then, the seriousness with which you manage your life can but bear fruit.

N. B.: when the birth time is unknown, (12:00 PM (unknown)), these portrait excerpts do not take into account the parameters derived from the time, which means, the domification (Ascendant, astrological houses, etc.). Nonetheless, these analyses remain accurate in any case. Regarding the sources of the birth data in our possession, kindly note that the pages we publish constitute a starting point for more detailed research, even though they seem useful to us. When the sources are contradictory, which occurs rarely, after having analysed them, we choose the most reliable one. Sometimes, we publish a birth date just because it is made available, but we do not claim that is it the best one, by no means.
