achieved: the sense of purpose that is recognized by MacDougal and the psychologists of the
Purposivistic School; ambitious, with good organizing and executive ability.
The solar influence is reflected in an impression of power in reserve; an outspoken and worldly-wise
counselor; a strong individuality with an urge toward acquisition of power. Emanates an

restraint, it operates more through inspiration than intellect. A strong paternal instinct.

honor, fame, pride, influence. When frustrated may become ostentatious, despotic,
ceremonious, and fond of pomp and ritual.

The instinctive mind, the desire-nature with respect to material things; the external reactions
to every-day affairs and to those pertaining to the home and domestic life; moods that

intelligence; vacillation, hesitancy to face issues; mental waywardness; brilliant and facile but
not profound; intellect in the abstract but not the concrete; industrious in acquiring knowledge
for its own sake, apart from any practical application or any question of right or wrong;
amasses evidence and eloquently cites statistics in support of his thesis; loves argument and
debate; cunning, crafty, subtle; a skilled technician enjoying a superficial proficiency;
literary, though not a ready writer. Mercury’s highest application appears to be in the realm of
“pure reason,” which, however, knows so much on both sides of a subject it experiences
difficulty in drawing a conclusion, or in holding to a conclusion once arrived at. From the
planet Mercury we have the word for the element Mercury, and its derivative effect,
mercurial. Its mental direction is largely determined by aspecting planets. v. Aspects,
Mercury: Active, excitable, impressionable, nervous, gossipy, worrisome, witty, dextrous.
Mercury expressions: Literature, writings, oratory, study, memory. If frustrated may become
conceited, profane, unprincipled, tale- bearing, forgetful, addicted to gambling.
Venus: Physical faculties: friendship, romantic amativeness; the affections, particularly love
and the emotions derived therefrom; aesthetic sense, but not analytical; responsive to beauty
whether of person, adornment, art or environment; enjoys elegance, comfort and pleasure;
good taste; sex sensitivity, but discriminating; parental instinct; a youthful, almost childlike
simplicity of approach and viewpoint; a gracious yet almost patronizing attitude; subject to
negative moods and extremes of feeling; given to self-pity in moments of depression; mind
highly receptive but largely concerned with social affairs; memory sense frequently
unreliable; gentle, amiable, pacific, graceful, cheerful, temperate, passive. When thwarted,
inclines to extravagance in self-indulgence; slothful, licentious, sensual, vain, dissolute, and
generally abandoned; fond of gaudy apparel. Evolved venusian sensibilities incline to art,
music, peace, justice, grace, faithfulness, fruitfulness.
Mars: The vital faculties: combativeness, acquisitiveness, desire, enthusiasm, passionate
amativeness, courage, ardor in pursuit, not easily rebuffed and seldom discouraged,
indiscriminate sexuality, haste, anger, intolerance, fretfulness; a centre of power and energy,
whether for good or ill; acute, penetrative mind, largely concerned with physical
accomplishment, through direct-action methods, rather than aims, and fitted for enterprises
requiring seer-assurance; dynamic force, whether applied constructively or destructively;
domineering, brooks no interference and is often ruthless in disregard of others; fearless and
unhesitating as to hazardous undertakings and occupations; love of family – and on a wider
plane, patriotism; ever ready to protect its own, whether family, country or organization;
strong sense of brotherhood with humanity at large, though appearing to be self-centered.
Mars is forceful, active, inflammatory, generally careless and destructive, expert, high-
spirited. Normally synonymous with force, activity, ambition, pluck, endurance, desire, strife.
When thwarted, Mars becomes cruel, egotistical, sarcastic, quarrelsome, coarse, vulgar.
Jupiter: The abstract and creative faculties: comparison applied in generalizations upon the
broader aspects; idealism; powerful sense of the dramatic, and obsessed with the desire to be
of service to society; symbolizes a person of sound judgment with an ample store of common
sense; optimism, order, harmony; the principle of expansion and growth as expressed in the

his judgments are tempered with mercy; love of beauty as applied to grandeur and the
sublime, with a leaning toward art, especially sculpture; the ability to overcome opposition
with forceful but impersonal arguments; broad vision, open-mindedness; listens to reason.
Jupiter creates conditions through which these qualities can bc expressed: health, as physical
harmony; law, as social harmony; religion, as spiritual harmony – not as channels of intellect,
or the means of making money. It represents judgment, power in the benevolent sense, profit,
good fortune, honesty, dignity – or just plain respectability.
At its best Jupiter is generous, expansive, genial, temperate, vital, benevolent, respectful, self-
controlled; but when frustrated it inclines to pride, dissipation, boastfulness, gambling,
extravagance, procrastination, complacency, hypocrisy.
Saturn: The concrete creative faculties: asceticism; practical ability to achieve the external
expression of thought forms; well ordered mind for the technical and concrete with an
emphasis on detail; inclined toward scientific research involving mathematics; the
conservative realist who asserts the authority of experience; secretive, noncommittal,

inability to give outward expression to affection, tends to separation and isolation; a serious
outlook on life; inclined to learn everything the hard way; avoids strenuous effort or exertion
– but generally finds more than his share of it to do. Its strong sense of self-preservation is
deliberately purposeful and holds the emotions in check through the exercise of thought and
will power, more completely than does any other planet.
Where Uranus makes a show of strength when freedom is threatened, and Mars when the
passions are aroused, Saturn is cold, slow and deliberate, but inexorable when fully aroused.
Plots his way to positions of authority, wherein he discharges his duties with tyrannical
conservatism; generally a reactionary, but faithful.
Normally fearful, secretive, cautious, defensive, binding, cold, hard, persevering, steadfast;
when frustrated Saturn develops avarice, materialism, ultra-conservatism, tradition-bound
narrow-mindedness, pessimism and fatalism.
Uranus: The iconoclastic tendency: characterized by an aloof, offhand manner and approach;
imagination, constructive or otherwise; reacts violently against anything that would deprive
him of his free and conscious choice of thought and action. Unbending will, insistent upon
independence at any price; not readily amenable to any sort of control, much less to arbitrary
authority; strong sense of power and authority; assertiveness, with crushing positiveness; self-
reliant; inventive; interest in scientific and religious principles; unconventional, altruistic;
perseverance to cope with and conquer material obstacles, yet subject to sudden changes of
attitude; organizer, promoter, scientific investigator along materialistic lines; originality, with
a tendency to break new ground, start new occupations, advance new ideas, utilize new
methods, depart from established customs, and hold in disdain the arbitrary restrictions of
conventional morality; strong mechanical sense and executive ability that leans toward
construction engineering; unerring ability to sense people’s motives, hence often becomes a
refractory spirit, more or less alienated from his relatives; moves spontaneously from an inner
urge – hence impulsive and generally classed as eccentric.
Uranus is deemed a higher octave of Mercury. often fails to know his own mind, but is
moved by providential circumstances; often a fatalist who considers his destiny beyond his
Naturally inclined to be variable, spasmodic, impulsive, prophetic, and heroic, under
restriction – even that of an inferiority complex – it becomes eccentric, refractory, bohemian,
fanatical, anarchistic, and given to hurling sarcastic invectives at anybody or anything on any
pretext and without provocation. Uranus is eminently the planet of science and invention,
particularly aviation, electricity, and astrology.
Neptune: The Social Unrest; follow-the-trend illusive and intangible emotions, of which we
know so little; entertains false hopes and indulges in tricky schemes, yet is highest in human
sympathy; loves mystery; acts dictated by powerful but inexplicable motives, directed toward
invisible, intangible ends; reacts to harmony, sympathy, symmetry, rhythm, poetry, and the
dance, which is the poetry of motion, with a partiality for stringed instruments; also for the
morbid and erotic.
Neptune pertains to feeling, desire, emotion, imagination. aesthetics, intuition, the psychic
faculties or extra-sensory perceptions. When thwarted it becomes psycho-neurotic, theatric,
and susceptible to flattery, the power of suggestion, and appearances. On the merest whim it
will break a bargain or go back on its word. It exhibits a high regard for uniformity yet often
succeeds in enterprises that require more than the average measure of mental effort. Neptune
is deemed a higher octave of Venus.
Pluto. Sociological Urge. The organized group as the instrument with which to amputate
parasitic growths on the body politic, in order to reconstruct society along more altruistic
lines. Depending upon the spiritual development they have attained, these individuals become
leaders of eleemosynary organizations. Foundations for the advancement of human welfare
and relations, professional associations or trade unions through which to achieve better social
conditions, or mere racketeers and gang leaders. It affords incentive to great literary or
dramatic geniuses who inculcate in their works Plutonian doctrines calculated to bear fruit
through the succeeding generation; total disregard for constituted authority or vested rights,
except as administered for the good of all; and even at its worst, more likely to be activated
by a sense of righteous indignation on behalf of society than by personal vindictiveness.
