There are basically 3 essential areas to deal with:
1. Protecting in thoughts that draconic planets and factors are inclined to really feel intrinsic or pure, we will mix the energies of the natal Solar with the draconic Solar, the reigning want of the natal Moon with the draconic Moon, and the id projection of the natal Ascendant with the draconic Ascendant. The natal and draconic work collectively.

This implies the preliminary impression she tasks is tightly structured and managed; needing to manage her surroundings and people inside it. There will be insistence on being the ‘authority,’ on being proper, and by no means placing a foot down fallacious. Why is that this? Does draconic Saturn echo considerations within the natal horoscope linked to the daddy? Natal Saturn guidelines the mindset third. It’s angular upon the IC, and receives a sq. from Neptune. We can not deny the significance of Saturn when it’s screaming for consideration within the natal and in synastry with the draconic!
Additional draconic Mercury in Leo is tightly conjunct her natal Midheaven. We really feel her ego and pleasure in expressing her intelligence. Within the natal, Mercury in Sagittarius is peregrine and ruling the eleventh home. This implies that conceited methods of considering and needing to show what she is aware of are behaviors overcompensating for lovability considerations. We have to discuss to her about her relationship together with her father, the way it impacted her mindset and influenced how she interacts with others.
A gay male has natal Mercury conjunct Venus in Pisces within the eighth home. In synastry, draconic Mercury-Venus is straddling the natal Descendant! The idealism constraint within the natal now turns into a serious assertion, projected publicly for all to see. Is that this illuminating the significance of his sexual profile and private relationships? What does the idealism shield towards? Why is it making such a daring assertion?
Draconic Pluto and Uranus are tightly conjunct his natal Leo Ascendant. Why the must be extremely individualistic, to be distinctive and completely different from the remainder of the world and pursue an unconventional way of life? Why does he must be the focal point (echoing his natal Moon in Aries) however on the similar time want to cover from intimacy and never let others in? Natal Uranus guidelines the seventh home. Natal Pluto guidelines the 4th directing our consideration to natal Neptune within the 4th (feeling just like the black sheep of the household) ruling the sexual profile eighth! We have to ask in regards to the early dwelling life and the affect of a father or mother. How did this create a protection of idealism round sexuality and one-on-one relationships?
3. With the draconic chart on the outer wheel and the natal on the interior, search for draconic planets tightly conjunct or opposed natal planets. They may unquestionably be making sturdy statements, pointing to areas of life that demand consideration.

In synastry, draconic Mars and Saturn in Capricorn conjunct this natal stellium. Draconic Mars can be exactly opposed natal Uranus within the third home!
We are able to really feel the indomitable will, and strategic administrative energy (Mars with Saturn); daring impulsive energies, the serial communicator/broadcaster, needing to make issues occur his means (Mars with Uranus)…and “making sturdy, emotional statements” (draconic Mars=natal Mercury/Venus)! All of that is working to make issues occur by way of third/ninth home issues. By asking Stern artistic open-ended questions, we will confirm whether or not this poses challenges or provides help for his progress and improvement.

Carson usually joked about his alimony funds: “My producer actually gave me one thing I wanted for Christmas. He gave me a present certificates to the Regulation Workplaces of Jacoby and Meyers.”
With the draconic on the outer wheel, Carson’s t-square with Mars squaring into the opposition between Pluto and Jupiter-Moon ‘clicks’ proper into exact alignment with natal Venus — creating one very severe Grand Sq. suggesting indecision and pissed off energies at cross-purposes!
Let’s assume by way of this configuration: draconic Mars opposed natal Venus (an excessive amount of ardour results in unwise decisions in relationships); draconic Pluto sq. natal Venus (extremism in emotional expression; losing feelings, over-longing, over-suffering); draconic Jupiter-Moon sq. natal Venus (self-indulgences, needing consolation/pampering; feeling extra-sensitive, insecure about one’s recognition).
The purpose is: draconic Venus front-and-center on the natal Midheaven is asking consideration to all issues archetypical of Venus similar to love and romance. Relationships might have introduced challenges to Carson, however life classes as effectively that have been probably crucial for his progress and improvement on this lifetime.
