Natal chart interpretation
Note: The following birth chart interpretation is for entertainment only and should not be viewed as a criticism or attack on the subject of the study. No offense is intended and no slight to character is meant.
SUN IN GEMINI
The Sun is in Gemini from approximately May 21 through June 21. People born under the intellectual air sign Gemini are ruled by the Planet Mercury and are likely to think and act swiftly. Key words are mentality, versatility, and nonconformity; and the key phrase for Gemini is “I think”.
Astrologer Lewellyn George writes in the “A to Z Horoscope Maker and Delineator” ( Llewellyn Publications, Thirty-sixth Printing, 1974): “In Gemini the Sun makes the native sympathetic, kind hearted, affectionate, fond of home and children and easily influenced by kindness, at times to his detriment. Is sensitive, intuitional, idealistic. Fond of science and as a rule studious and usually endowed with great imaginative ability. Possesses an active mind and can be relied upon to act quickly in an emergency. Is an experimenter and investigator, quick reasoner, generally a good writer; likes to be busy and can engage in two or more occupations at once but must be allowed to work in his own way. Changeful, inquiring, doubtful nature, hard to understand, but versatile, alert, dexterous and skillful. Is ambitious, aspiring and loves change and diversity”. (Written in about 1908).
Max Heindel in his book, “The Message of the Stars” (Rosicrucians, 1927), writes: “Gemini is a Mercurial sign and third in the gamut, hence this position gives a blended influence of the Sun, Mercury and the Third house. This favors expression of Mercury for it is the planet which stirs the vocal cords and produces sound in the Taurean larynx: it also favors writings and travel; the mind is brightened by the Sun in Gemini and when it is necessary or expedient to travel the person gains thereby physically and mentally. It gives pleasant, affable disposition which makes him generally liked among his associates.”
He is a communicator (I did NOT say “chatterbox!”), and speech is especially important to him. He has a need to identify and classify, for his mind jumps from one thing to another and words are anchoring safety devices which help keep him on track. Kanye West is thirsty for knowledge and has a highly developed learning capacity. His inventive imagination created a need for education from the time he was born, and could qualify him for professions in writing, research, and criticism. (He can be very good at criticism, however he tends to be charming, interesting and interesting.)
There is a dual quality to the Gemini personality. Variety is the spice of life for him, and Kanye West happiest when he has more than one dominant interest. He enjoys his hands being busy, which they are very capable of doing on their own while his mind and attention can jump around to many things at the same time. He has to work at maintaining calmness of mind and body and the best discipline to achieve this might well begin by trying to keep his hands and feet still
and to eat slowly. It’s no use suggesting that he thinks slowly, for Kanye West a Gemini.
He is, in many ways, an eternal child. His mind is bright, alert, curious, flexible, playful, and always eager for new experiences. His attention span can be quite brief. He grasps ideas quickly and once his initial curiosity has been satisfied, he wants to go on to something else. He craves frequent change, and meeting new situations and new people.
He also has a rather light and mischievous sense of humor, and often does not take anything too seriously. Though he craves emotional involvement it is hard for him to achieve it, for Kanye West frequently unwilling to commit himself to anything, to take responsibility, or to limit his personal freedom.
He may live in his head a great deal (reading, observing, thinking, spinning ideas around) and he needs mental stimulation every bit as much as he needs food and drink. In fact, if he had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, he would very likely choose one of the former.
He may enjoy great popularity because of his witty conversation, mental agility, sociability, courtesy, and intuition. However, Kanye West ever a nonconformist. He needs to maintain his separateness
He hates any kind of bondage, rebels against the status quo, resists authority, and never yields his individuality to one person or one place. He needs to work at realizing his relationship to humanity’s common lot, and that cooperation is necessary to self-fulfillment. He has the potential to overcome deficiencies and negative tendencies and to reach high objectives in life.
Leo is the royal sign, the Ascendant of “kingship” and “queenship”. The symbol is the lion, the king of beasts. Leo is ruled by the Sun, the source of heat, energy, and light. It projects powerful influences into the lives of those born when Leo is rising over the eastern horizon. They may sparkle brilliantly when the Sun is shining and appear subdued when it is hiding. Leo is a Fire sign in the fixed mode, bestowing a fiery personality influenced by determination and stability.
He appears to others to be dramatic, regal in bearing, and certainly in control of the situation. Leadership seems easy for him and he appears to exude an air of strength, dominance and individuality. It is usually easy for others to recognize him by the abundance of hair framing his face in profusion or swept back like a lion’s mane. In addition, the dramatic combinations in color and clothing of his royal attire will give his personality away every time. He may appear to sparkle brilliantly when the Sun is shining and seem subdued when it is hiding. Others see his personality as strongly influenced by determination and stability.
To others, he may look and act ferocious and need to be at the head of the pack, but underneath Kanye West is a pussycat who likes to have his fur stroked. However, his enthusiasm and energies ARE high, and he may be impatient with those around him who are less inspired and slower than him. He may assume the leadership role subtly and without any sense of abdication on the part of others that’s just the way things are. He also needs to excel in what he does, and anytime he feels failure, Kanye West is wounded more deeply than he wants others to know. When this happens, he will go into hiding, lick his wounds in private, and restore his sense of self-worth in his own way and his own time.
He admires others who are strong individuals like himself. When he befriends someone, Kanye West is tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. Kanye West is very giving and generous, but he expects recognition and appreciation for that which he gives. He also expects the same loyalty and generosity to be reciprocated. He often has trouble working with people who are as strong as himself, for he doesn’t share the leading role very easily.
He has a royal taste. Others are likely to judge him as extravagant, for he wants to have the very best of everything. He will be tempted to run up bills if that is necessary to keep up appearances. He wants to share good things with others, and can be particularly lavish if his sense of luxury is shared and appreciated. If he cannot show his generosity, graciousness and flair for good living, he will suffer deeply. He wants to provide comfort for those around him at all times.
Others around him will not know how devastated he feels when he fails to live up to his expectations or to what he thinks are the expectations of others. But when he hides to lick his wounds, he needs to be particularly wary of indulging in alcohol or other drugs to help restore his self-esteem. He could find them to be too effective, causing him to disregard more positive and healthy measures. Mood altering chemicals are likely to produce more euphoria for him than for others.
Others may expect more of him than he thinks he can deliver. However, he will do well in any profession where leadership ability is required, as in financial institutions and corporations. The profession will be empty though, if there is no applause. Kanye West is an actor, and could very well be in that star-studded list of men and women in the dramatic arts or in politics, sports, and writing. Many of the world’s leaders appear to have his personality. So, all he gotta do is go for it.

Libra is ruled by Venus, planet of beauty, art, and material possessions.

He will like luxury and travel.
SCORPIO ON 4TH HOUSE
Pluto rules Scorpio on the fourth house of his chart. Scorpio is represented by the Eagle and the Serpent, while Pluto is the planet of regeneration and the underworld.

GEMINI IN 11TH HOUSE
Mercury rules Gemini, sign of the twins. When found in the eleventh house of friends, love received, and goals it indicates an intellectual duality in group activities.

CANCER ON 12TH HOUSE
Cancer, emotional sign of the mother, is ruled by the emotional planet Moon. When found in the twelfth house of hidden matters and the subconscious process, emotions are likely to be very vulnerable. Mysterious feelings from the subconscious can make him want to cry without knowing why. He will seek seclusion at times. This configuration can make them very intuitive and psychic.
THE PLANETS: POSITIONS AND ASPECTS
Here are the ten major heavenly bodies that astrologers believe influence our lives: the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. The Sun and Moon are the most easily recognizable because they give us light and heat. They also help us keep track of time by providing the base for calendars and clocks. The other eight planets distribute less visible but no less real influences.
The planets in your chart continuously emit energy, which can be affected by the sign they’re in, the house they’re in, and their angular relationships to each other. In the introduction to your Ascendant, we introduced the term “synchronicity”. In the following pages, we will print interpretations of each planet in your chart with respect to the sign it’s in and its house position.
Planetary aspects are angles between planets that have been found to affect their influences. Each aspect is significant in its own way, but some are more important than others. We will print the interpretation of the planetary aspects to each other below. Keep in mind that every angle between two or more planets creates an aspect, but some are more significant than others.
When it comes to astrology, there are two main categories: Major and Minor aspects. The Minor aspects are mainly used for research purposes or very specific work. However, we stick to the Major aspects in our general readings. The major aspects are: Conjunction (same degree), Sextile (60 degrees), Square (90 degrees), Trine (120 degrees), and Opposition (180 degrees).
Don’t worry if some of these individual interpretations seem to conflict with others – we take all of these things into account when doing a reading for someone. We look at the whole person, and the separate parts can modify, reinforce, or nullify each other.
We have pulled all this data together for him as it is displayed in his birth chart. This whole configuration can not be repeated or duplicated during his lifetime. Although the earth in its rotation around the Sun each year goes through all the twelve sign constellations and returns the Sun to its natal position, it takes Neptune 165 years and Pluto 248 years to complete their orbits. The planets are constantly moving their positions throughout the universe so that it is not possible for all the planetary positions and aspects to repeat themselves in their lifetime.
Planets move around the universe, so the position of the planets in your birth chart is unique to you. It’s not possible for all the planetary positions and aspects to repeat themselves in your lifetime.
Although the Earth goes around the Sun each year, Neptune takes 165 years to orbit once and Pluto 248 years. So most of them wouldn’t be returning to their original positions in his lifetime, but a few would.
That leaves it up to us as individuals to deal with those influences imprinted upon us at birth and revealed through the horoscope. It is our hope, through astrology, that we may explain what those influences are and thus understand ourselves better. We have free will to make choices which can affect those birth imprints in positive or negative ways. Probably no one of us will ever fulfill the “promises” of the natal chart in our lifetime, but hopefully, knowing what the influences are could help us to make some better choices.
Some people believe that our horoscopes can tell us a lot about our lives- including the things we’re born with and the things we have to work on. While it’s impossible to change everything about ourselves, we do have free will to make choices that can help us improve our lives. Hopefully, by understanding the influences behind our horoscopes, we can make better choices for ourselves.
There are many benefits to understanding your horoscope- including gaining a better understanding of yourself and your place in the world. Knowing the things you’re good at, as well as the areas you need to work on, can help you to focus your energies in the right direction. Additionally, gaining a better understanding of your horoscope can help you to make better choices in your life, and can give you a sense of peace and guidance. If you’re feeling lost or uncertain about your future, taking the time to understand your horoscope may be just what you need. So, if you’re curious about your horoscope, go ahead and get your own natal chart here.
PLANETARY SIGN AND HOUSE POSITIONS:
The following planetary sign and house positions are determined by HIS birth data. There are 384 variations of these positions, as well as many other variables, but only 25 of them apply to each individual. The possibility of another person having the same combination of positions is practically non-existent.
The Sun and the Moon are known as the “Lights” and are not planets in the technical sense of the word. However, they are the most visible and perhaps more influential in affecting man’s awareness than all of the other heavenly bodies put together. The blend of the Sun-Moon influences, from the signs they are in, and whether they are in aspect or not, are extremely significant to the personality profile of the new life. The relationship of the Sun and Moon to each other by their position, sign, and aspect and their relationship to the Ascendant can sometimes provide us with an extremely accurate mini-interpretation of the chart. The interpretation of his Sun-Moon combination is printed next. Study it carefully
as well as the next three Sun and Moon sign delineations.
GEMINI SUN AND PISCES MOON
These two Mutable signs incline towards a tension within the mind and nerves because external expression is difficult. Ideas about the Self seem to require over-explaining. He has a “bubbly” personality, but it has hidden depths. He could be lacking in self-confidence, and he needs to cling to the things that he intuitively and instinctively know are “right” for him. Kanye West is good with children and probably enjoys sports and dancing. He could be good in business leadership and is always thinking and formulating ideas that will be understood and effective. This effort effectively applied will result in reward to the Self in reality. He needs to learn to trust his instincts and apply them in a positive manner.
SUN IN THE TENTH HOUSE
The Sun in the houses represents the departments of life most strongly affected by the individual will and power potential. Tenth house position generally indicates persons who are ambitious to attain positions of responsibility, power, and authority. Kanye West is likely to be rather dignified and he has a strong will to succeed. He desires honor and recognition and will work hard to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to achieve his goals. Kanye West is probably a good manager and demands respect. He also wants to set a good example for others. He needs to watch out for an excessive love of power and for dictatorial attitudes.
MOON IN PISCES
In mythology the Moon is always female, as the Sun is always male. In most ancient religions and cults, the Moon represents the female force which reflects the male force of the Sun. In astrology, “she” bestows her indiscriminative influences upon both male and female alike, though each sex might respond to the influences in different ways. The Moon in the signs indicates the emotional responses to life’s situations. It determines how they are likely to react to external influences and to the actions of others.
The Moon in Pisces indicates a supersensitive nature which acts like a psychic sponge, soaking up the thoughts and emotions of others. He has a vivid imagination, verging on the mediumistic, which could result in enormous poetic, musical, or artistic talent. Kanye West is likely to be disproportionately kind and sympathetic, but they are easily hurt and could be excessively shy.
He could spend a large part of his life trying to find out what life (and afterlife) is all about, searching for answers to deep and indefinable questions to which there are no simple answers. Consequently he could be drawn to religious or quasi-religious groups or cults for enlightenment. He needs to seek true spiritual guidance to channel the dominance of his subconscious mind. Traditional and simple prayer and meditation is probably the best way to begin such a search.
He is much more ambitious than the combination of this caring, psychic sign and this caring and emotional planet would indicate. He could be quite talented in some, or many, areas of artistic expression in which he could carve out a measure of fame and success. He would also be quite good at any of the people-helping-people careers. Kanye West is likely to receive honors and recognition in whatever profession or career he ultimately chooses.
Personal relationships will be intense, whether they are good or not-so-good. He like his home, and whether home-bound or not, it will be a safe haven and a base for all his activities
especially for his love-sex and romantic relationships. He loves to make love and can be quite creative and inimitable in its expression, as well as thoroughly enjoying the romantic and the traditional.
He likes to give and to get cards and small gifts, and can cry over nostalgia and soap opera. He could also be a little jealous, and a failed relationship will be extremely painful. He could blame himself to the extreme and feel Kanye West is a failure in love. This could make him feel so vulnerable that he would withdraw into seclusion to protect himself emotionally. If this should happen, he needs to get out and about, meet new people, and get his life jump-started into more positive directions again.
MOON IN THE SEVENTH HOUSE
The Moon in the houses indicates the areas of daily activity through which his feelings are manifested, and gives clues to the type of activity on the domestic scene. In this House, it indicates a tendency to get married for emotional and domestic security. His family can influence his marriage, since Kanye West is so emotionally sensitive to others. He seeks emotional fulfillment through relationships, and could look for a mother or father image in his marriage partner. His dealings with the public are likely to be business related. He needs to practice self-confidence and to apply his emotional sensitivity to others in positive ways.
MERCURY IN TAURUS
Mercury in the signs gives clues to the kinds of concerns that occupy his mind, and reveals his psychological approach to making decisions and conveying his ideas to others. In Taurus, it bestows much practical common sense. This gives him a great power of concentration so that Kanye West is able to ignore those with which he doesn’t want to be bothered. If carried too far, however, this could make he blind to things he should recognize for his own good, as well as add mental stubbornness. He dislikes argument and disharmony, but will fight to protect his security and financial interests. He is likely to possess the mental ability to convey his ideas through artistic directions and art forms.
MERCURY IN THE TENTH HOUSE
Mercury in the houses deals with the practical affairs that occupy his mind, and shows what areas of activity will be influenced by his thoughts and communications. In the tenth house it indicates Kanye West likely to pursue education for reasons of professional ambition. Kanye West likely has a good organizational ability and the capacity to plan for the future. His career is not likely to be accidental. Kanye West is able to communicate with people of power and prestige, and with the public, so that politics would be natural for him. Whatever his occupation, it will involve communications media. Ambition is the keyword in this position, but beware that it could take precedence over principles.
VENUS IN TAURUS
Venus in the signs indicates how he expresses his emotions in personal relationships, and his attitudes toward money, personal possessions, creature comforts, and social and aesthetic values. Venus is the ruler of Taurus, making her influences very strong here. Stability in love and emotional security are important to him. Kanye West is loyal to those he loves, but he can be possessive and jealous if his emotional security should be threatened. He likes physical contact with his loved one, but is sensual in a passive way, he prefers to attract rather than to pursue. He loves comfort, luxury, beautiful surroundings, good food, and opulence in general; consequently, the money that makes these things possible is extremely important to him. Personal beauty is also important to him and he will try to make himself as attractive and healthful as possible. He feels a kinship with the earth, and enjoys the material things thereof. He has a deep appreciation for all things beautiful and artistic.
VENUS IN THE NINTH HOUSE
Venus in the houses indicates how he expresses himself romantically, artistically and socially in the various areas of his life. Ninth house position gives him a love of art, religion, and philosophy. He will love to travel and will be especially receptive to people of other cultures. He could marry someone from a foreign country, and much happiness can come from in-laws’ relationships. He could become a scholar in foreign cultures.
MARS IN TAURUS
Mars, planet of energy, gives information about modes of action as a result of the desire principle. It influences ambition and indicates some forms of expressing our emotional behavior. In Taurus it gives practical qualities: ambition, quick wit, foresight, and good organizational and managerial ability. Kanye West is determined and consistent where self interest is concerned and is likely to have good earning ability. Kanye West is also likely to enjoy his occupation, and to carry it through with tact and diplomacy. However he will not tolerate much opposition, and will need to beware of temper and “bull-headedness”.
MARS IN THE NINTH HOUSE
Mars in the houses indicate the departments of life in which he exerts energy to express his actions and desires. Ninth house position bestows interests in travel and outdoor sports: and, in religious, philosophical, social, and educational causes. He will push for the ideals he believes in, and will actively support institutions which support his views. He believes in action, not just words. He likes adventure, and may seek broad experiences. He will need to develop tolerance and understanding for those who do not share his convictions.
JUPITER IN GEMINI
Jupiter in the signs indicates his ethical, religious, and philosophical standards and beliefs, and how he may express these interests. In Gemini, it gives a friendly disposition; courteous, truthful and trustworthy. Kanye West is able to express sympathy, charity, and benevolence. He has an intellectual curiosity that leads to mental development. Kanye West is able to express new ideas in fields related to travel, writing, and study. He will be attracted to the history of religion, education, law, and philosophy. He will have tendencies toward mental restlessness and “dabbling” in many areas of study and interests, so he needs to ground his knowledge in practical experience in order to avoid going off on tangents.
JUPITER IN THE TENTH HOUSE
Jupiter in the houses indicates the departments of life and the types of activity through which he expresses his religious, educational, and philosophical ideas. In the tenth house position, Jupiter influences him to feel strong professional ambitions to which honesty and reliability will be applied. He may hold public office, and will be looked upon as a pillar of the community. He has strong religious and ethical principles, which he expresses through all his public activities. He needs to watch out for tendencies to neglect domestic responsibilities in favor of his public activities, and to avoid hypocrisy and false pride.
SATURN IN LEO
Saturn in the signs indicates the areas in which he must accept responsibility and the ways in which he must practice discipline and develop maturity. In Leo, these qualities are likely to be distorted by egotism and his desire for power. Kanye West likely has a compulsive drive for personal control and a great need for recognition and self-importance. He will need to practice all the discipline Saturn can bestow in order to develop a proper set of values in dealing with love, romance, children, and self-expression. In his profession, Kanye West is likely to attain positions of power and leadership. Be satisfied with that, and remember, there is a Power greater than ourselves.
SATURN IN THE TWELFTH HOUSE
Saturn in the houses indicates the areas of life in which we must learn to act with discipline and to express practical ambition through maturity. When it is in the twelfth house, the focus will be behind the scenes. He has great intuitive and psychic depths, and needs much meditation and seclusion for spiritual guidance. His place is in caring for others, and the profession is likely to be in hospitals, or other large institutions
perhaps for the mentally ill. He will have the support of influential people in his chosen profession. His karma of the past is close to his consciousness, and he will operate often on “automatic pilot”. Know from Whence these gifts come, and do not allow self-centeredness to enter in.
URANUS IN SCORPIO
Uranus in the signs indicates ways in which he expresses his urge for freedom and individuality, and how he establishes his link with the Universal Mind. In Scorpio it gives him the powers of concentration, persistence, and determination. He can be highly sex-oriented, and one of the lessons to be learned here is the proper place for sex in his life. He has extremely powerful emotions, and needs to exercise this power carefully lest he injure others around him and in his life. He has an inventive nature and a love for mechanical things, and Kanye West is likely to succeed in anything he attempts, even against great odds.
URANUS IN THE THIRD HOUSE
Uranus in the houses indicates the types of activities through which he expresses his urge toward freedom and individuality. In the third house, brothers, sisters, friends, and neighbors are involved. His mind is curious and unconventional, and is likely to be reflected by those around him. Collectively, he will pursue interests in the unusual, such as clairvoyance, clairaudience, telepathy, or spiritual healing. He may have sudden insights which can develop into inventions and creative technology. Beware of jumping to conclusions and impulsive changing of opinions.
NEPTUNE IN SAGITTARIUS
Since Neptune spends about thirteen years in each sign, its influences are mostly generational. It indicates the kind of creative and imaginative cultural expressions he experiences. In Sagittarius the emphasis is on positive expression of higher religious and spiritual values. He will search for more personal contact with God through his inner being, probably through forms of meditation.
NEPTUNE IN THE FOURTH HOUSE
Neptune in the houses indicates how he expresses his mystical potential, and may reveal some of the karma produced by his past actions. In the fourth house the focus is on the domestic scene. He likes to live close to nature (especially, close to a body of water) and have some of the same kind of feelings toward his family as toward the earth. These are strong unconscious ties and are related to his karma. One of his parents is/was probably very psychic. Family secrets and mysteries regarding his home life are likely. He wants to mother the world, so that he actually has an extended family and feels strong emotional ties to all those recognized as “family”. Beware of tendencies to over-protectiveness and isolation of family from the real world. Avoid alcohol and drugs.
PLUTO IN LIBRA
Influences of Pluto in the signs is also more historical and generational than personal. Individual influences are likely to produce permanent change. In Libra the indication is toward the conscious responsibilities for fellow men through justice, human relations, social expression and psychology.
PLUTO IN THE SECOND HOUSE
The house position of Pluto shows in which departments of life he needs to exercise conscious creative willpower to regenerate himself and his surroundings. The second house focus is on money and material resources. He has a driving ambition to acquire and is likely to have great resourcefulness in making money. The basic lesson of this position is the need to understand that we are only stewards of material resources, which must be used unselfishly for the benefit of all.
Following are the interpretations of the planetary aspects to each other. Aspects are angular relationships between two or more planets that have been found to modify the influences bestowed. Significant angles are: Conjunction (same degree), Sextile (60 degrees), Square (90 degrees), Trine (120 degrees), and Opposition (180 degrees). Don’t worry that some of these individual interpretations seem to conflict. Remember
we look at the whole person, and the separate parts can modify, reinforce, or nullify each other.
SUN CONJUNCT JUPITER
This conjunction conveys a positive outlook, pleasing personality, and a generous, optimistic nature. The Sun’s power and will is reinforced by Jupiter’s expansiveness and good-fortune tendencies. He will be able to take advantage of his environment to make improvements for the good of all. His optimism will help him enlist the help of others and spur him on to success in those ventures he truly believes in. Kanye West is likely to make his mark in the world by making it a better place to live in. Greatest areas of achievement could be in social change, philosophy, and group causes.
SUN OPPOSITE NEPTUNE
