A. Male: January 27, 1832 at 3:48 AM LMT in Daresbury UK [Asc 3 Sagittarius 36]
1. Libra Midheaven offers Venus. –Venus is reinforced and perhaps further directed by Mars, but both, through dispositorship, key Jupiter, and Jupiter in turn leads to Uranus*, ruler of the 3rd. We have our first stop-point, possible anchor House. We think arts (Venus), innovative (Uranus!*), socially projected communication (3rd House).
2. Looking for reinforcement, we check further in the 3rd, through Neptune, which is peregrine AND oriental. This emphatically augments aesthetics, beauties, idealizations, imagination, painting, painting with words, photography ... fantasy?
3. It is clear that the vocational talents/needs here are focused in inventive, imaginative communication, probably writing [Sun in touch with the Midheaven … Sun=Mercury/Jupiter (writer’s signature); Venus=Mercury/Asc; Neptune!E=Sun/Mercury]. –We can note that Mars –in touch with Venus, the Midheaven ruler— rules the 5th, which brings considerations of education and children into the mix. –We see that the Moon, in Sagittarius and strongly angular, is in touch with Uranus!*, ruler of the 3rd; we see three quintiles, one of them key: Uranus!* to Ascendant-Moon.
This gentleman surely needs to express himself through highly artistic, innovative writing, possibly most creatively for children.
***This is the horoscope of Lewis Carroll, creator of “Alice in Wonderland” and similar works of fantasy, which have become classics in literature, not only for children: “Through the Looking Glass, The Hunting of the Snark, Jabberwocky …”
--Interestingly, Carroll, a pseudonym (Neptune), was also known as a Mathematician (Uranus; Mercury, Mars signature); was labeled a logician and was almost ordained an Anglican Minister (Sun-Midheaven, ruling the 9th with Mercury), and was a well-established photographer (Neptune). But the focal talent and need expression of a fanciful writer dominate the horoscope and dominated his life.
Closing Note: There has been much speculation in varied academic circles that Carroll may have been a pedophile (and you can read about this conjecture through Google references to Carroll). The encyclopedic entries about Carroll can not point to any proof of this, but, indeed, his actual marriage proposal to the real-life Alice when she was eleven years old, the pages strangely missing (torn) from his diary, and more … all that does raise eyebrows, as might the Mars-Venus conjunction with Mars ruling the 5th.
