Among other meanings, Mercury represent learning, Mars, action. When you pair these two together, a possibility is learning by doing. So, a person with this aspect may enhance learning by writing or typing thing, which is a form of action or motion involving the hands, at the very least.
Whenever there is a low emphasis on an element in a natal chart, it is possible that such person may overcompensate by engaging in "watery" activities even though it's not the most comfortable to them. If you understand the MBTI framework, it's like utilising your inferior function full time. Watery activities may involve activities involving … Continue reading Low Emphasis on Water
I have realized over time that persons with a high emphasis on the Capricorn sign or a strongly featured Saturn are rather responsible people. They try to do what is right by their perceived expectations of their partner, family, friends, work colleagues, bosses, community and society. So much so that often times, they might forget … Continue reading Musing About Capricorns
A creative exploration of astrological symbols can be really helpful. Who would have thought that a Moon in Capricorn conjunct MC may refer to a career in geriatrics or work in a nursing home?

Here's another more concrete interpretation of Jupiter in 12th: expansion, personal growth in a hospital. This can be especially relevant for medical practitioners who are looking to return to work in a hospital. In fact, it is in one of my clients' solar return chart.
I was reading Melanie Reinhart's pinnacle masterpiece "Chiron and the Healing Journey" for the nth time. Again, as in the past few years, almost nothing sunk in. I previously wondered if that's because Chiron is in my 12th house. Hence, the key to Chiron (pun intended) is hidden from me. Just today, it occurred to … Continue reading Why We Enjoy Some Books More Than Others
I'm almost certain that there are rules within traditional astrology that predicts the potential fame of a person. I haven't learnt or come across how to go about doing that using modern astrological concepts. How about I try to see if I can derive a set of considerations to determine the potential fame of someone? … Continue reading Potential for Fame and Acclaim
