Astro Charts Analysis

A LIFE STORY

 

Author: Nikola Stojanovic

What happens when a client visits an astrologer, after the interpretation of a birth chart has been completed? This is probably true for all astrologers who have been into astrology for good many years (have a considerable number of clients) – we easily forget clients and everything we say to them. At the end, it is client's rather than astrologer's responsibility to remember the interpretation of his/her birth chart and subsequent recommendations.

My memory usually records only some of the most interesting and educational details from a birth chart since almost everyone's horoscope contains something new and informative that I haven’t met in my practice before. I put in a special file particularly interesting and educational horoscopes to be subsequently «served» to my students in the school of astrology.

Some two or three weeks ago a girl called me to make an appointment claiming that she was my client and she wanted to buy my second book. That was not uncommon since my 6th house (clients) is in the sign of Aquarius (astrology). Mercury (to understand, to know, to read, to study astrology- Aquarius) is exalted in my 6th house and thus, many of my clients dabble in astrology.

She visited me in my office on the day of the appointment.

«Hallo, I'm Biljana, I came as agreed, to buy your book». She takes the book which she hadn't even looked at, sits in an armchair and says: « You see, I visited you three years ago and... I still can't believe it. Everything you said would happen to me actually did happen...»

In such situation when a person utters something like this, I feel, simply put, dumb since I can remember neither what I had said nor the birth chart of the person.

Having had some 20 minutes until the next appointment I searched for her birth chart in my computer and asked her to tell me what I had said to her and what had happened.

Therefore, she started her account....

Since she memorized every detail of what I told her three years ago and in view of the fact that her horoscope was very educational, based on which I gave her very accurate prognoses, I asked her to «put her life story on paper» so that I could put it on my website – naturally, with her permission.

 

This story also tells us what particular clients think about astrology and astrologers and how they experience their appointments with astrologers.

Her name is Biljana Pajić. She is an electrical engineer. The time of her birth was rectified – she was born 5 minutes earlier than specified in her birth certificate (13:35). Further in the text you will find Biljana's letter while my astrological explanations are given in brackets.

Dear Mr. Stojanovic,

 

I don’t know where to start. I was born on 9.3.1971 at 13.40 in Zemun.

Your words are still vivid in my mind although it’s been exactly 3 years since my first appointment with you!!!

Something was simply forcing me to visit you although I used to think that astrology was nothing but quackery.

I visited you at your home. I came with a friend since I didn’t dare to come alone. My mental condition was very bad and was causing the deterioration of my entire health. I wanted someone with me there, someone who would be able to give me objective assessment of what I was going to hear. However...Your first words left me petrified.  You told me that I lived near the source of a big noise and that there was water in the vicinity. I live in block 45 (near the Sava river and airplanes fly above my building all the time)! I never told you about the place I live. You also told me that my job has something to do with electrical engineering (I work in the Power Distribution Industry), that my then husband often travels abroad and falls ill every time he is there (he didn’t like traveling, he used to say that this was his punishment) and that his job was connected with traffic (he works in Yugoslav Airlines and has spent a lot of time in foreign countries), that he was hard-working and able to earn a lot of money, that his mother had a big and concealed influence on him, that his true person was completely different from the one he shows to the rest of the world and that I was the only one who knew his true nature. At the time, no one knew about this dark side of my marriage.

Biljana Pajic

(the 7th house describes the first husband and the way he presents himself to other people. Venus is placed in the 7th house, which speaks about his good upbringing and manners, that he is a man who leaves good and favorable expression on other people. However, his house beginning in the sign of Aquarius is ruled by Uranus and Saturn; Uranus is at the 12th degree of Libra bearing all the symbolic of Pisces and indicating that her husband’s personality is very complex and that parts of his character are concealed and invisible to other people; the other ruler Saturn placed at the worst 18th degree speaks about evil and controlled trait of his (Saturn – control, self-control) which from time to time surfaces)

I kept silent and put up with it because I wanted to have children. In addition, when you had read my mind about it you told me that I would never have children here, in my own country (my first pregnancy ended up in a miscarriage on 8/3/1999, a day before my birthday. I barely stayed alive and I spent the entire pregnancy in hospital. After that, I tried artificial insemination two times but no use). You also told me that I would have children only if I go abroad.

(The fifth house describes children and the first-born. Her fifth house begins in Scorpio; the ruler of this house Mars is in the sign of Sagittarius –a foreign country; this sign and house also contain Neptune and Jupiter-ruler of Sagittarius, which tells us that she can have children only if she follows the symbolic of Sagittarius –in a foreign country; Neptune and Jupiter rule the 9th house – second marriage and thus, she can have children only in the second marriage.

This birth chart also perfectly supports astrologer Svetlana’s theory on pregnancy –8th house is the house of pregnancy. In her horoscope it begins in Aquarius which symbolizes everything of artificial nature and this is why Biljana tried artificial insemination; ruler of this house Uranus is retrograde which brings about the failure of the first attempts –she must try more than once…)

Then, there was another shock!!! You told me that I would divorce him, more exactly, that I would leave him because I would refuse to put up with mental and physical abuse either from him or his family (mother, brother) and that he would try to get me back but without success. You told me that I would go to court with him in connection with real property. We were building a house at the time, it was year 2000. (now there is an ongoing proceedings about the distribution of property). You advised me not to ride with him in the same car (he is inclined to speedy and reckless driving) because in his birth chart he had some very adverse aspects and that I should stay away from crossroads (a year later, on the crossroads near the train station we went under a truck –luckily only the car was damaged – navy blue Reno 4). Therefore,  all of this happened and is still happening.

(In almost all cases, Ascendant Leo with the cusp of the 7th house – marriage – in Aquarius results in divorce. Ruler of Aquarius, Uranus, symbolizes divorce. This is especially true for people born in the late 1960s and early 1970s when Uranus (divorce) was in the sign of Libra-marriage. Almost all people I know with Leo as Ascendant are divorced. This fact was particularly influenced by Uranus transiting Aquarius.

In her 7th house – denoting marriage but additionally the events during a divorce – there is Venus. Venus rules her 4th house (house, home, apartment) and thus, after she got married  (7th house) she started to build a house together with her husband. While this house is also the house denoting divorce, they were bound to take this matter of the joint house to court –Venus in the 7th house as a ruler of the 4th house –house, home.)

I was in denial. I kept saying that was a mistake. How was I to leave the man I adored?! I really adored him despite him bullying me and pushing me into a nervous breakdown and escape in my own imaginary world. I thought he was ideal and that I was not able to find a better man.

(Uranus ruling her 7th house – marriage – also rules nerves, irritation and nervous breakdown. The ruler of her Ascendant – our first reaction to something, the Sun, is placed in Pisces – escape into an imaginary world.)

Then you told me that I would meet a man who would have something to do with my line of work. That he would be 7-8 years older than me with a previous marriage and a child from this marriage. That he would invite me to visit him in a foreign country which is surrounded by water and that my second marriage will be a very happy one. You told me that a much better life was waiting for me abroad and that only in a foreign country would I be able to express myself fully in all areas of life. And this is really happening to me now. In January, I’m leaving for a foreign insular land.

(Her 9th house describes her second husband. This house begins in Pisces. Both rulers of this house – Neptune and Jupiter – are placed in Sagittarius (a foreign country); this house stretches to the sign of Pisces –sea where, additionally Mercury and Sun are placed –small country surrounded (Mercury) by sea –Pisces. They have known each other –the Sun ruler of her Ascendant-she exact sextile Saturn-someone from the past. The same aspect indicates that he is older than her; Saturn rules her 6th house –colleague from work, the one she used to work with; in addition, Saturn and Sun are at the 18th degree with all symbolic of Virgo –from work, on work. He is divorced because in her 3rd house i.e. his 7th house when we count from the 9th one – the second husband- there is Uranus (divorce). He has a child because in the 9th house there is Mercury – child and Sun ruling her 1st and his 5th house – child -when we count the houses starting from the 9th (second husband). The cusp of her 9th house – second husband – is at the 16th degree fully symbolizing Cancer. This tells us that her second husband will be a man from her country – Cancer, origin.)

There is a strong chemistry between us. You told me yourself that there would be a strong attraction between us.

(Both rulers of the 9th house (second husband), Neptune and Jupiter, are placed in the 5th house - love.)

Then you mentioned that sister (sisters) should be careful in traffic and be ware of the violent death. The next year, on 11/9/2002 my first cousin, with whom I was very close, died in a traffic accident in Germany. She was killed instantly. I couldn’t believe it and then your words started to echo in my mind. How was it possible that you were able to predict these events so much in advance?

(In her 3rd house (sisters) there is Pluto (death) opposition (adverse aspect) Mercury, the ruler of this house (also symbolizes sisters and traffic) at the unfavorable 20th degree – degree with the symbolic of Scorpio (death) in Pisces (to lose, loss). Mercury, the ruler of the 3rd house (sister) is in the 9th house – this is why this happens in a foreign country)

How did you know that my father is a very strict but fair man and, above all, righteous? How could you have known that my husband’s family was verbally abusing me and that I kept out of their way, that my husband physically abused me and humiliated me every chance he got however, later on, trying to make amends with expensive gifts.

(Venus- gifts, in the 7th house (husband) sextile Jupiter (expensive gifts))

How did you know that he would find a mistress in his job!? This also proved to be true as it was true that he is currently trying to prevent me from getting any property. This is exactly what he is trying to do. Only, you stressed that I should be nice and that I would be able to get my financial compensation only through subtle ways. Now I only need to wait and follow your advice. I wanted to know what was going to happen to my (ex) husband. You told me that should he remarry his marriage would be a disaster. (He was born on 9/10/1967 at 23.45 in Zemun.) The 11th house of her horoscope is the 5th house of his love affair; it begins at the 24th degree of Taurus which has the same symbolic as the sign of Pisces – secret relationships. Venus, the ruler of this house, is at the 6th degree with the full symbolic of Virgo (on the job, from work). Her seventh house describes her first husband and what will happen in the course of divorce proceedings. Venus in her 7th house symbolizes a sensible discussion; however, Saturn also rules the 7th house and is placed in Taurus (property) at the worst 18th degree. All this tells us that if she provokes anger in him, the evil energy will pour out of him and he will become obstinate in his intention to leave her without a penny and the divorce will take a long time – all due to the adverse influence of Saturn at the very adverse degree. This position of Saturn (diminishing, lessening) in Taurus (property) also tells us that in the course of property division she will get a worse deal and be given less than a fair value of the property.

Her 3rd house describes his second marriage because this is the 9th house counting from the 7th. It begins in the sign of Virgo – he meets his second wife through the symbolic of this sign (business) where the dangerous aspect lies in wait for them – Mercury opposition Pluto...)

 

I remember leaving your apartment and my friend telling me "this man is raving mad, you’d better forget all he said because it's ridiculous ".

I couldn't think rationally. Every word was carved deeply in my mind and I was trying to find a rational explanation. But there wasn't any. Very soon, your forecasts started to come true.....

Thank you for preparing me for what the future brings!!!

 

A week later, I got another letter.

Hi Nikola,

I just wanted to inform you that I followed your advice about the proceedings. I was nice and calm. It was all over on 10/11/2004 at 11:45. We managed to reach an understanding about the division of the house and other property. I felt horrible. I came to him, wished him all the best in life and asked him to go with me somewhere for a drink. I wanted to talk to him alone, without lawyers.

He agreed ...he cried like a baby. I couldn’t believe my eyes – such a tough man crying. He kept telling me that he still loved me but not as much as before. Now he loves her, as well. Only, I can’t understand how you can love someone that much after you’ve known this person for just two months. Is that possible? He said that he had changed. Is it possible for a person to change at 37?

I think it’s just an illusion.

I had the impression that he was on the verge of asking me to get back with him but he knew that I had seen him with her a while ago and was too embarrassed. He tried to reduce my share of property but still agreed that I should have 40% of the house price (I am to sell the house). He gave me the car and some other things. For a moment, I wished I could turn the time back but it is not possible ….I will move on.

 

I answered: “ Tomorrow is another day…”

EACH DEGREE OF THE ZODIAC CIRCLE HAS THE BASIC CHARACTERISTICS OF THE ANALOGOUS ZODIAC SIGN

 

INTRODUCTION TO THE THEORY OF THE DEGREES

I have always found encounters with fellow astrologers interesting, particularly encounters with those who have pursued this divine science for a good many years. A touch of vanity is always involved in such meetings, in which a renowned astrologer wishes to present his/her knowledge with a view to gaining a colleague's respect. A few years ago, I met a fellow astrologer who had studied astrology meticulously for over 20 years and who was a professor at Belgrade University. Out of respect for his years of study, I let him start the ball rolling in what turned out to be a very pleasant discussion. Since he was an attentive reader of articles of mine published in Argument Weekly, my mentioning of the zodiac degrees had come to his attention, and we began to discuss the subject. Until that discussion I had not talked much about my discovery of the secrets of the degrees, partly for fear that someone might claim my knowledge as their own.  However, a combination of vanity and awareness of the importance of the secret of the degrees caused me to start talking. My colleague soon produced his wife’s birth chart. I asked him one question: whether the chart was precise. Having obtained an answer in the affirmative, I studied the chart for some 10 seconds before declaring: "Your wife called a carpenter to the house and ordered that a larger bed be made. When the carpenter had finished the job, you went to bed and realized that the work had not been done properly. One measure was right - the bed was long enough - but the other one was not - the bed was still too narrow." 

The amazed look on my colleague's face told me that this brief analysis was absolutely correct. How was I so accurate? Sleeping and everything connected to it - a bed, a bedroom - is described in a horoscope's 12th house. The cusp of the 12th house of my colleague’s wife begins at the 21st degree of Aries, and the ruler of that house, Mars, is at the sixth degree of Virgo. According to my theory, the 21st degree has the symbolism of Sagittarius (like nine degrees), and Aries symbolizes to make, to create. So, his wife wanted to make (Aries) a larger (21st degree - Sagittarius - Jupiter - to enlarge) bed (the 12th house). 

As Mars, the ruler of the 12th house, is placed in Virgo (someone who renders services, a worker), his wife called a carpenter to the house. However, her Mars was in Virgo and, moreover at Virgo degree (sixth degree). Taking into consideration that Virgo symbolizes diminishing/making smaller, one measure of the bed had to be smaller than was necessary. Therefore, the cusp of the 12th house (the bed) at the 21st degree (Sagittarius - larger, longer) tells us that the bed was long enough (enlarged), and Mars in Virgo at Virgo degree (sixth degree) that it was not wide enough.

Naturally, any reader of this book will wonder how I had come to discover the secrets of the zodiac degrees.

While practising as an astrologer (and having studied astrology in a rather traditional way for this part of the world, through knowledge acquired from books available in Belgrade in the late 1980s and early 1990s by Dupor, Milekic and others) I began to notice that, more often than not, I was failing to pinpoint some crucial moments in a person’s life during a birth chart analysis.

Since my analyses also contained correct 'guesses', clients usually left satisfied (or at least partly satisfied). However, I remained dissatisfied and somewhat disappointed. Very often I spent long hours searching for answers to the details I had not seen in my analysis of a chart. I thought the missing knowledge could be found in books I did not possess, so I frantically ordered foreign astrology books. The number of books I had in English increased steadily, but my knowledge did not increase proportionally, only my disappointment. Furious, I decided to stop buying books and began conducting astrological research of my own. My horoscope certainly prompted me to make such a decision: I was born under Pisces, which symbolizes the unknown and unexplored, that is, research work - all of which is supported by my ascendant in Virgo, symbolizing small things, details. Thus, I focused (the ascendant - action) on studying (Pisces) the zodiac degrees (Virgo).

Around that time I also started working on Argument, whereby I received a letter from a grief-stricken mother asking me about the fate of her missing son. She had a feeling that he had been killed. Her son was born under Aries with Leo ascendant and the Sun (life) at the eighth degree of Aries. I remembered that Dupor had qualified that degree as adverse and as bound to have the symbolism of the eighth sign of Scorpio - death. It occurred to me that if the eighth degree has the symbolism of the eighth sign of Scorpio, the other zodiac degrees will have the analogous symbolism of a particular sign. I also recalled a sentence I had once read, along the lines of: 'The basic properties of something substantial are contained in the integral part thereof.' In astrology, the zodiac signs are 'substantial', and the zodiac degrees are the integral part of any astrological sign. 

I considered the following analogy: if the eighth degree corresponds to the eighth sign of Scorpio, then the first degree must be analogous to the first sign of Aries, the second degree analogous to the second sign of Taurus, the third degree analogous to the third sign of Gemini and so on, up to the 12th degree which has the symbolism of the 12th sign of Pisces. At the time, I had no clue about the zero (0) degree (from 0 to 29). For me, it presented an absolute mystery (although I did say to myself that some solution to this degree was bound to come), but all the time I kept thinking: and what about 13th, 14th, 15th degree..?

At the time I happened to be studying the birth chart of the United States. It occurred to me that every US president seems to have possessed a strong desire to be regarded as a great warrior. I wondered why. Obviously, their Sun (a president) squares Saturn (history), thus producing their wish to do something that goes down in history. But why war? It occurred to me that the degrees after the 12th degree start again from Aries. If we look at the zodiac circle and start from the first sign of Aries up to the last sign of Pisces, we will see that the zodiac continues; that is, the sign of Aries comes again, because the zodiac is an infinite circle. So, the American presidents (the Sun) wish to go down in history (Saturn) as warriors (the degree of Aries - Mars), because their Sun is at the degree of Aries  (13th degree of Cancer). 

The story continues from the beginning: the 13th degree has the symbolism of Aries, the 14th degree the symbolism of Taurus, the15th degree the symbolism of Gemini (Somehow, about that time, I was paid a visit by a girl with the Sun at the15th degree of Leo, in her 12th house. She said: "My father (the Sun) drives a bus (15th degree) to Montenegro (Leo) at night (12th house)." I jumped out of my chair in excitement), the 16th degree the symbolism of Cancer, and so on to the 24th degree. which has the symbolism of Pisces.

Naturally, I asked myself: "What next? What happens with the 25th, 26th, 27th, 28th and 29th degree of each sign?" Believe it or not, the birth chart that helped me solve my dilemma was that of Adolf Hitler (20 April 1889, 18:30, CET-1, 13E02, 48N15). His horoscope had long been a mystery to me. There were many questions to which I could not find answers: Why was Hitler obsessed with war? Why did he always appear in military uniform? Why did he personally command military operations?

There is a strong seventh house in Hitler's horoscope (concerning politics, warfare, conquering), but confusing to me was the fact that he was born under Taurus with ascendant in Libra - the ruler of both signs is Venus which, in astrology, symbolizes peace. In addition, his Venus (the ruler of the Sun and ascendant) in Taurus is much stronger than Mars in Taurus conjunction Venus. Strong Venus in Taurus in its natural seventh house is much stronger than Mars in Taurus in the seventh house, which is weak for Mars. However, something in that arrangement had pushed Hitler to wage war. The dilemma was resolved by the position of Hitler's ascendant at the 25th degree of Libra with the symbolism of Aries (the ruler Mars - waging wars). Naturally, just as in the zodiac circle, Aries comes again after the12th sign of Pisces, the 25th Aries degree comes after the 12th and 24th degree, which have the symbolism of the 12th sign of Pisces. Consequently, Hitler was obsessed with war; he appeared (the ascendant - the image we create) in military uniform and commanded military operations because his ascendant (action, image, appearance, action priorities), is at the 25th degree, conveying the symbolism of Aries.   

This continues in the same order of things: the 25th degree has the symbolism of Aries, the 26th degree the symbolism of Taurus, the 27th degree the symbolism of Gemini, the 28th degree the symbolism of Cancer and finally the 29th degree the symbolism of Leo.

After the 29th degree of each zodiac sign we come to the zero (0) degree of the next zodiac sign, hence repeating all 12 zodiac signs in a circle.
