|Cancer rising usually gives a maternal appearance but with Uranus closely conjunct and the ruler(Moon) in Aquarius the features take on a decidely Uranian or Aquarian look. Sun in Gemini accurately reflects her role as chief communicator, and Mars conjunct gives her drive and leadership. Moon in Aquarius is comfortable or at home where space and astronomy are concerned. Their emotional cool, intuitive genius, and mental objectivity makes them ideal candidates for a scienticif milieu. Mercury in Taurus steadies the mind, increases the determination, and uses reason rather than feeling to solve issues. Venus in Cancer values emotion and sensitivity, and takes a caring or nurturing approach towards its relationships. Mars in Gemini is the bold thinker and communicator who acts on and impresses others with his or her words or ideas. They're also quite witty and versatile. Jupiter in Aries does well when challenged and succeeds by taking the initiative. They are good with tools and vehicles of all kinds and in the solar 11th house indicates space travel. Saturn in Virgo is excellent for the discipline, control, hygiene, timeliness, and overall rigorous standards required by Nasa or the space program. Uranus in Cancer can destabilize the emotions causing occasional moodiness or erratic behaviour. They are highly intuitive receiving flashes of instinct. Neptune in Libra overidealizes its relationships and makes sacrifices to maintain the peace. Art, meditation, or music are great soothers or pacifiers. Pluto in Leo feels intense pride, joy, love, or creative ability. Their accomplishments are impressive and dramatic.|
