A. Female: October 3, 1949 at 1:10 AM in Brownsville, TX; Asc: 29Can47.
1. The Aries Midheaven keys Mars, with Pluto . Sun-Mercury ruler of the 3rd. Neptune is also involved there; Neptune rules the 9th. --We see clearly “communications”, probably with an international dimension, perhaps with some aesthetic involvement.
2. The next key planetary situation focuses everything: The Moon in Aquarius always suggests “helping others live their life better”, and here it is in the 8th and in mutual reception with Uranus, ruler of the 8th. Uranus in turn brings the networking back to the Sun-Mercury in the 3rd.
This person needs to work in communications, somehow therapeutically (8th).
~~I said to her, “How do you help people?” She replied, “I’m a bi-lingual speech therapist!” ….A perfect corroboration of the horoscope profile!

1. The ruler of the Midheaven is the anchor for the massive stellium in the 3rd House, ruled by Mars! [Mars=Sun/Moon] --Tremendous emphasis, not only on communications but the workings of thought, the mind … so pronounced is the statement.
2. The key that refines the observations is Venus* in touch with the Moon AND the Midheaven, ruling the 9th: this elevates the mind observations. Does it lift communications to philosophy? Does it introduce writing, publication, internationalism?
~~This is the horoscope of philosopher, writer Rene Descartes, who spent most of his adult life in the Dutch Republic. He is called “the Father of Modern Philosophy”; most influential in mathematics, analytical geometry. His famous premise: “cogito ergo sum,” I think, therefore I am.
