|Both Mercury and Uranus are very strong in Frances Farmer's chart, being in their home signs, and giving a compulsion to be utterly truthful or factual without any sweetness or embellishment. This was in fact her outstanding nature -to say it like it is and do her own thing, whether it was politics or personal issues, and it's also what got her into serious trouble as well. Sun in Virgo natives are humble and service-oriented and hate any form of hypocrisy. They take great pride and pleasure in their work and are happiest when helping or serving others through their specialized skills. Mercury closely conjunct the Sun gives a mercurial or communicative nature liking to read, write, or speak. Moon in Taurus adds to the earthiness of Virgo giving more firmness, stability, and resourcefulness. The Moon is said to be exalted here, being favourable for almost any activity, but especially music, art, building, agriculture, or buisness. Mercury in Virgo is a fine placement for anyone wishing to specialize in a certain trade or field. They are very conscientious and efficient and make natural secretaries, teachers, writers, skilled tradesmen, technical people, or good workers in general. Venus in Leo is playful, proud, and affectionate, and enjoys acting or being dramatic. They are also possessive, stubborn, bossy, showy, and tend to live luxuriously or beyond their means. Mars in Cancer is very moody and emotional and for most people with this placement the home or domestic situation becones a battlefield. On the positive side they have vivid and colorful imaginations and make able cooks, homemakers, painters, storytellers, and other Cancer-related professions or activities. Mars is closely conjuncted by Pluto(in Cancer) greatly intensifying the war-like emotional nature and sensitivity. Jupiter in Capricorn does much to balance or offset the strong emotions in the native and even gives commendable powers of planning and organization. This Jupiter is also renowned for its ambition, industry, economy, and tendency to control, use, or manipulate. Saturn in Gemini works long and hard to become a fine writer, speaker, teacher, or communicator in general. There may be a speech impediment or serious curtailment of movement in the life. Uranus in Aquarius is the rebel, inventor, discoverer, truth-seeker, and freedom-lover. They are incredibly stubborn, self-willed, or independant, and need to be involved in some kind of humantarian goal or activity. They're strong and brilliant and it's no use trying to change or coerce them -they are a law unto themselves. This position also makes the native handsome or attractive, often with blue eyes and an electrical presence. Neptune in Cancer is a generation of domestics and sentimentalists with vivid imaginations and photographic memories. They can easily develop obssessive eating or drinking habits as well as a preoccupation with security and survival issues. Pluto in Cancer people go through heaven and hell when it comes to their emotions, home, or family. They are survival-oriented and make exceptional mothers, home-makers, and caretakers, as well as cooks, caterers, and real estate agents. The rising sign may or may not be in Virgo. There is a strong indication that it may be in one of the adjacent signs(author's opinion).|
