REVELATION: THE NEW ASTROLOGY
“I can’t help it. I’m an Aries. Of COURSE I have a temper.” “The Moon was in Taurus. It triggered my sweet tooth. I HAD to have dessert.” “Mars squared my ascendant, so of COURSE I got angry.”
We’ve all made statements like these and, in essence, blamed the planets for our actions and the events in our lives. We look to the stars for guidance, praise them when we do well, and blame them when things don’t go the way we’d like. Don’t the stars affect our lives? Don’t they influence us? The stars do not MAKE us do anything any more than seeing a great pair of shoes in a store window MAKES you run in and buy them, or passing a restaurant when you are hungry MAKES you rush inside and grab a meal. There is a synchronicity to the universe that puts you intuitively in tune with the world around you. Subconsciously, you give and receive messages that guide and direct you to your spoken or unspoken goal, thus creating those events and circumstances that fulfill your desires. You, then, are the Creator of your life. You created being at the restaurant when you were hungry so that you could eat. YOU were the cause, not the restaurant. Similarly, you created being in front of the store window in order to see the shoes. YOU were the Creator, not the shoes.
In the winter, the leaves fall from the trees. At the same time, we put on heavier clothing. The falling leaves do not MAKE us put on heavier clothing; the cold weather does. We and the trees are responding to the same cause—the change of seasons. As part of God’s plan, we, and all of nature, are responding to the larger order of things. So, too, in astrology, the planets reflect what is occurring in our personal worlds and the lessons we are learning. They are not the lessons themselves, but the reflections thereof.
REVELATION: THE NEW ASTROLOGY is the implementation of the knowledge that you are the Creator of your life. As such, you are free to interpret each planet in your chart on its highest and best level, thereby being the highest and best manifestation of God you can be. YOU determine the level of functioning of your chart and the degree of happiness and success in your life. When you function on this level, your life takes on a richness of dimension it has not had before. You take the responsibility for creating your life the way you would like it to be. You see the planets as those gifts and talents you have chosen to express in this lifetime. You fulfill your limitless potential because you see what CAN be, rather than what cannot. The chart then becomes a guide, rather than the source of your happiness or unhappiness. It becomes a reflection of your own spiritual evolution. REVELATION: THE NEW ASTROLOGY is designed to assist you in that evolution. It is about love and appreciation of the God within, the acknowledgment of the Truth of who you are and, as a result, the beautiful expression of that Truth.
When you express the Truth of who you are by being your highest and best, you lift those around you and inspire THEM to be THEIR highest and best. They, in turn, inspire others, and so the Light is awakened in one person after another, spreading love, joy and peace across the face of the earth.
YOUR GIFTS, TALENTS AND ABILITIES
PLANETS IN HOUSES
The Sun represents your greatest power and creativity in this lifetime. Its house placement indicates that area of life in which you are free to express this power and creativity–that area of life in which your Light shines most brightly.
Sun in 4th house:
The center of your life is your inner home. You create an emotional center of warmth and security for everyone you consider your family. The creative power within you forms the foundation of your life.
The Moon represents your sensitivity and feeling nature. Its house placement indicates that area of life in which you previously sought emotional security and are now more intuitively awakened and responsive.
Moon in 2nd house:
You have an instinct about money. You know what will sell and are open to new projects. By overcoming the desire that money provide your emotional security, you are able to flow with financial currents. You feel secure in this flow and inspire others to do the same.
Mercury rules the conscious mind and communication. Wherever it is placed in the chart is the area of life about which you think and talk the most.
Mercury in 4th house:
You think in terms of home, family and emotional security. You are conscious of what makes you feel secure and can express it. This helps others get in touch with their own needs.
Venus represents the principles of love, beauty, art and sociability. Wherever it is placed in your chart is that area of life where you most easily express love and beauty.
Venus in 3rd house:
You see beauty all around you and love to share your ideas with others. You have a beautiful, loving way of expressing yourself that makes your words easy to hear.
Mars rules passion and energy. Wherever it is placed in your chart is the area of life that comes first to you, the area into which you throw yourself and your energies, the area about which you feel passionately.
Mars in 6th house:
You throw your energies into your work and love being busy. Because you want to be needed, you are happiest when you are involved in a service-oriented project.
Jupiter represents the principles in which you believe, and rules expansion, abundance, truth, generosity and optimism. Its house placement indicates that area of life in which you are blessed, and in which you believe most strongly.
Jupiter in 2nd house:
You deal truthfully with money, which increases your resources. You believe in financial abundance, and attract it to yourself. This inspires others to do the same.
Saturn rules responsibility, authority, strength and power. Wherever it falls in your chart is the area of life where you take charge, assume your responsibilities and express your greatest strength.
Saturn in 9th house:
You build your life on the philosophies and principles in which you believe—and you live by them. Your example helps others get clear on what their own beliefs are. Your concept of God is traditional, and your philosophy is: if you respect God’s laws, the universe works with you.
Uranus rules originality, innovation, and invention. Wherever it falls in your chart is that area of life in which you express your unique individuality.
Uranus in 3rd house:
You see the big picture, what’s best for the whole, and come up with inventive ways of implementing your ideas. You are intuitive and innovative—so much so, that your ideas are ahead of their time. When faced with the impossible, you simply find a new approach to getting the job done.
Neptune represents spirituality, faith, and divine inspiration. Its house placement indicates that area of life in which you seek to fulfill your most beautiful dreams, and where you are inspired to selflessly serve.
Neptune in 4th house:
You have faith in your family and happily serve them. Your home is your haven, and your spiritual “home” within is your sanctuary. Your love, joy and peace increase with time.
Pluto represents total transmutation, the death of the lower nature and subsequent emergence of the reborn God within. Wherever it falls in your chart is that area of life in which you have been transformed, where you are empowered and completely in command.
Pluto in 3rd house:
Your thinking has undergone a total change. As a result, you see to the heart of things—and understand how to turn them around. Your words are very powerful and speak to people both consciously and subconsciously.
THE NORTH AND SOUTH NODES
The South Node, the Dragon’s Tail, represents those qualities and abilities previously developed in past lives. The North Node, the Dragon’s Head, represents those qualities and abilities to be further developed in this life. Combining both nodes balances their energies and creates a natural flow. Because they are 180 degrees apart, they teach us how to interact successfully with others and, therefore, affect all our relationships. Their house placements indicate those areas of life which can thrive as a result of their blending.
Nodes in 4th/10th houses:
Your ability to balance emotional needs for security with public recognition and achievement, your home with your career, means you can have the best of both.
PLANETS IN SIGNS
By seeing the positive manifestation of the planets in the signs, you are able to express your highest and best.
Sun in Scorpio:
Your instinctive ability to get past the effects and see the cause of a problem makes you a natural detective.
Moon in Leo:
Your creative instincts are strong. Children are drawn to you because you are able to have fun in everything you do.

Your energies are directed toward advancement. You always move upward.

THE NODES IN THE SIGNS
The North and South Nodes teach us the same lessons in the signs as they do in the houses.
Nodes in Aries/Libra:
You have the ability to create warm and loving relationships in which both parties get what they want without feeling they are giving anything up.
Traditional astrology identifies certain aspects between planets as “positive”, and others as “negative”. Aspects between planets are simply contacts between them. When you are coming from limitlessness, when your chart is functioning on its highest and best level, your attitude is one of loving acceptance because you know that every situation is a reflection of where you are and what your next learning experience is. As a result, every aspect is positive. By accepting planetary aspects as positive learning experiences, they function that way in your life.

THE CHART RULER
The ruler of the sign on the ascendant is the “chart ruler.” It is a key planet in the horoscope because the ascendant is the most personal point in the chart. Its sign, house placement and the aspects it makes to other planets explain how you express YOU. (Refer to chapters: Planets in Houses, Planets in Signs and Aspects.)
CHART RULER: MOON
You are sensitive, intuitive and caring. You FEEL everything, from a symphony to a sunset. This makes it easy to identify with people, animals, places, ideas, objects, situations, etc.
The signs on the house cusps are the principles to be learned; the cusp on which a sign falls tells us the area of life in which that particular principle will manifest. The planetary ruler, or “roving delegate” of that sign, acts as a messenger, bringing the energy from the house it rules to the house in which it is placed. For example, if Aries is on the 3rd cusp and Mars is in the 10th, the ruler of the 3rd is in the 10th. The energy flows from the 3rd to the 10th, linking the two. The same principle applies if Taurus is on the 3rd and Venus is in the 10th, or Cancer is on the 3rd and the Moon is in the 10th.
Ruler of 1st house in 2nd:
You put your energies into creating money, possessions and resources, and are successful at creating them. You are your own best resource, appreciate yourself and value what you have created.
Ruler of 2nd house in 4th:
You share your resources and values with your family, thus providing financial as well as emotional security for them.
Ruler of 3rd house in 4th:
You think about the emotional security that home and family provide, and share your ideas with your family members.
Ruler of 4th house in 3rd:
You are able to bring your innermost security needs to consciousness and express them.
Ruler of 5th house in 3rd:
You think creatively, artistically and romantically. You constantly find new ways to have fun. You express your enjoyment of life, and this makes you fun to be with.
Ruler of 6th house in 2nd:
Your work is one of your most valuable possessions. You profit through service projects.
Ruler of 7th house in 9th:
The world in general and your partner in particular encourage you to learn, see the big picture, and expand your horizons. You believe in partnership, sharing and equality.
Ruler of 8th house in 3rd:
You are psychically in tune with what is really going on rather than what appears to be happening. You understand innately what people really want and what their values are.
Ruler of 9th house in 4th:
Your need for security is fulfilled by living according to your principles, which means living according to God’s laws.
Ruler of 10th house in 6th:
The authority figures in your life encourage and support your work. You are the authority figure at work, and by your example, encourage others to serve as you do.

Ruler of 12th house in 4th:
Privacy and solitude can fulfill your security need. You feel divinely protected. You choose to serve God by serving your family.
