Astrological Reading for Doreen Molloy
by Maria DeSimone
So obviously from looking at your birth chart, you're a psychic!
Here are your main indicators of psychic ability:
The Sun, Moon and Rising sign are all in water signs. This is huge. Sun and Moon in Pisces makes you an empath before anything else. It's not uncommon for you to feel other people's pain and anguish and in your earlier days as a psychic, I'm sure you were overwhelmed at times with this. Pisces is the emotional sponge of the zodiac and you must have learned to do some serious psychic self protection before sessions somewhere along the way.
On a personal note, you attract the 'victims' to you. People can take advantage of your kindness and mistake it for weakness if you're not careful because it's difficult for you to set boundaries. I'm sure you've evolved past this 'doormat tendency' by now but it likely was challenging.
The rising sign or Ascendant is how others first perceive you - it's the first impression and also the doorway to your personality. With Cancer rising you come across as nurturing and protective. Self preservation has been very important for you along your life and this enhances your moods and sensitivity. You are ruled by the Moon so this takes us back to your Pisces Moon. It is amplified for you via the New Moon. I don't know much about you personally but New Moon babies are typically "listless or lazy" in a certain capacity and for your psychic ability, I see this as you having an easy time surrendering to your ability and trusting it rather than being a lazy person. You fantasize a lot and it is quite easy for you to astrally travel.
The water signs are one way to indicate psychic ability and you already have this, however planets in the water houses [or the ruler of a water house being located in a water house] is another significant indicator and you have this as well. Let me explain:
On your 8th house cusp, you have the sign Aquarius (you'll see the 14 degrees and 7 minutes and the 2 squiggly lines that is the glyph for Aquarius). Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus and co-ruled by Saturn.
Now things get more dynamic. You have Uranus located in Cancer in your 12th house (a water house) and you also have Saturn in Libra in your 4th house (another water house). This is how astrologers weave the web of a horoscope together to see the intricacies - and it's what separates the charts of people with true psychic ability and talent from the rest... This is house rulership.
The Neptune-Saturn conjunction in your 4th house is quite grounding for your psychic ability. Neptune dissolves boundaries but Saturn erects them. Together in your 4th house of the soul it creates the ability to see into the soul purpose of others easily and help them to structure it. This might be a specialty of yours.
The Sun and Moon make a beautiful trine to Uranus in Cancer in your 12th. Uranus is the planet of telepathy and this is where you get your mediumistic ability. Uranus is the higher vibrations and you can easily tune your energy (Sun) and instincts (Moon) into this vibration.
The signatures I have found for mediums always include either a tight contact from the Sun or Moon to Uranus or from Mercury to Uranus. You have the contact with Sun and Moon (wider orb but because it's connected with your Sun it's permissible). That's pretty impressive!
Mercury at an angle also seems to be associated with mediumship although in other charts it's usually connected to Uranus as well. Your Mercury was retrograde or moving backwards at your birth so this would mean that you internalise your thoughts more than others before you express them. It's common for people born with Mercury Rx to have learning disabilities or delays in speech as a child because they process the world differently. In adults, it's often a signature of someone with amazing writing talent. Posited in the 9 th house of publishing along with your Sun and Moon, it's no wonder you're a published author!
At age 6 or 7 there may have been a psychic awakening for you since at this time retrograde mercury aligned with your Sun and activated that trine to Uranus. This may have been when you were first starting to talk with spirits, angels or even God. Learning or communication issues in general would have been strong at this age as well.
So these are your personal basic psychic indicators based on my work. I hope it's somewhat understandable for you to read this since you mentioned astrology not being your thing.
Again, I appreciate so much your willingness to participate in my research.
Incidentally, your degree of Cancer rising indicates that you are very well connected to the old, the soul, one's roots and heritage and deep traditions. This is where your love of archaeology comes in as well.
It's fun to be an astrologer and notice all the past life ties we have with people through the birth charts as well as to compare charts and see what two people are meant to learn from one another in this life. The North node is a point in horoscopes that indicates what your soul is meant to aspire to learn and how you are meant to grow in this current incarnation. Your natal Neptune – the planet of spirituality, psychic development and creativity indicates that you will prove to be instrumental to others in accelerating their own [psychic] development.
There are some major life changes happening for you starting around April 2009 based on your horoscope. Very exciting and promising in terms of publishing and your income (that's always good!) Are you about to get picked up by a major publishing house or do you plan international travel with the work you do during this time? It might be both and it might also involve international publishing or teaching. The energy is dynamic... The wonderful thing about astrology is that once you see what cycles of opportunity are coming up you can utilize your free will to put the energy towards the most positive direction possible. I love astrology!!!
My Sun is in Taurus and that is one of the most practical, grounded signs of the zodiac, so for me this is very important. You have your Venus and Jupiter in Taurus - so you've got the same desire to put spiritual matter into physical form. The Taurus lesson is to trust that matter is real either way. As a Pisces, you trust that instinctively and long to reconnect with it... but those Taurus planets will agree with my Taurus Sun and say "Prove it!"
For your information, on my scale of psychic indicators, a score of 5 or more proves marked psychic potential, a score of 6 or more is someone who displays “extraordinary psychic ability” and a score of 7 or more is in the “psychic genius” category.
The highest score is 9 and there were no charts in that range. All the professional psychics (of renown and not) scored a 7 or 8 and in my control group of 'random' charts out of 30 charts none of them scored an 8 and only 2 scored a 7! The research is very promising!!!
Your chart scored a 7 easily so you're in the 'psychic genius' category. You do have the criteria to put you on an 8 just so you know, but because I wanted to be as “stingy and scientific” as possible so that the work is validated, I kept your chart as a 7. Either way – 7 or 8, it's a psychic genius. But I wanted to mention it because I know that as a woman who has Mercury and Mars in Aries (Mars in Aries has a competitive streak and a need to always go beyond their personal best), there is a part of you that needs to be 'number one' in what you do and in all of your endeavors. You're definitely in the cream of the crop!!!
