|Ascendant in Aries gives Richard Burton a confident and competitive exterior. Moon in Virgo gives excellent powers of analysis and organization. In the 6th house, the Moon is resourceful and efficient but sensitive to many health ailments. Sun in Scorpio conjunct Saturn is a very deep and somber spirit who is often too hard on both himself and others. These people dig deeply for facts and struggle with the concepts of reality and limitation. In the 8th house, the Sun and Saturn explore scientifically the nature of death and the occult in general. This is a very old soul. Mercury in Sagittarius is the philosopher who explores the notions of God, philosophy, and morality. They are blunt or direct in speech and always hopeful of a positive outcome. Mercury in the 9th house travels and studies foreign language and culture and publishes articles. Venus in Capricorn likes order, structure, and definition, and can be cool or reserved in love. Venus with Jupiter is fortunate in love and finance and receives many gifts and favors. In the 10th house, Venus and Jupiter give many lucrative career opportunities and a positive reputation. Mars in Libra makes an energetic and combative partner who will fight for fairness and justice. This Mars is also artistic, sociable, and flirtatious. Mars in the 7th has fiery partners or mates breaking off and starting over again(as with Elizabeth Taylor). Jupiter in Capricorn has an interest in politics and the order of things and can be very frugal or economic. Saturn in Scorpio is very serious and morbid and makes an excellent investigator or researcher. Uranus in Pisces is a generation of supersensitive souls who often seek escape from harsh reality through drinking and drugs, especially when in the 12th house. Neptune in Leo is a generation of artists and entertainers who seek glamour and recognition. It is powerful in Burton's solar tenth, dominating his entire purpose or outlook on life. In the chart's 5th house it glamourizes love, fame, power, and children. Pluto in Cancer is a generation with powerful emotions and a deep devotion to home and family life. They are security and survival oriented. All of this is heightened with Pluto in Burton's 4th whole sign house. Pluto|
