Jodi Arias Natal Chart Interpretation
Born: July 9, 1980 in Salinas, CA at 1:52 AM
Chinese Zodiac Sign: Metal Monkey
Angle aspects defined:
Trines and sextiles provide established energies used without conflict or effort.
Squares and oppositions generally involve challenging tests to discern how best to achieve results without creating additional problems. These difficulties are presented to learn, grow and accomplish.
Conjunctions are intense energies that are familiar to the person and may or may not pose challenges. The two planets are very close to each other.
The Mid-heaven pertains to aspirations and goals. Jodi's Mid-heaven is in a rough angle to her Sun in Cancer. Sun is about one's ego, status and personal identity. There is a need to work out conflicts between who she is in life and obtaining her goals. Her home, family and parents are important to her and she needs it to function in a smooth manner without much chaos.
A stable home base is important to those with Sun in Cancer, particularly the maternal elements whether giving or receiving. Although a stable home life increases her self-confidence and independent nature, it appears to conflict with a Uranus oppose Ascendant (rising sign) aspect. The rising sign influences and reveals how we initially appear to others and our initial approach to projects, events and people.
Jodi has tendencies to overdo and needs someone willing and able to clearly bring that to her attention. She is inclined to be abrupt about speaking or sharing her feelings which can cause emotional harm to partners. She can, however, apply restraint when she is wanting to make a good impression.
Close confinements, such as in youth, stir up rebelliousness and she thinks she has the right to do what she wants. The boundaries imposed by rules even cause her to feel confined. When unable to have things go her way, she may become defiant and abusive.
She seldom reflects on experiences as constructive lessons to learn from. She may be in need of more stability due to erratic tendencies and must apply patience to overcome obstacles.
Rising Sign in Taurus: Rising signs are the mask of the deeper core, the public persona. Taurus gives an impression that everything is under control as they appear relaxed and calm. Not one for quick decision-making, Taurus people like to have time to mull things over and gain more information. Once in gear, they can weather storms until tasks are completed. There may be inflexibility and stubborn views, but also loyalty.
Those with this rising sign often prefer to be thought of as self-sufficient and financially stable. They enjoy hints of luxury. Their physique is stronger than average and they're able to take on tough projects with endurance.
Mercury, planet of mentality, is in a rough aspect to the Mid-heaven and Sun which can strengthen her opinions and narrow-minded views. Her view is subjective with difficulty obtaining objective clarity in her own situations. Unless she makes the effort to gain an overall perspective, she may take her feelings too seriously. She may have a habit of reflecting on events as if she was wrongly treated instead of addressing the problems.
Trine Mars - She goes after what she wants and doesn't like interference. She prefers to have control over her time and money.
Sun in Cancer is self-protective, affectionate and likes to keep relationships private. She is sensitive to the subtle ways people communicate. Jodi is generous when her needs are met, but when they aren't, she withdraws into herself. She seeks to succeed and strives for pleasure.
Sun in the 3rd house makes for a vivid imagination, fantasy and long distance relationships. She talks and questions even when there is nothing to say. She enjoys new experiences, debates and solving puzzles.
Conjunct Mercury shows Jodi Arias tends automatically to do the talking in discussions and is not good at listening; her thoughts, ideas and opinions are expressed and she expects to be listened to. It would be beneficial for her to cultivate humility and to not take herself too seriously.
Ethics and Power Struggles
Square Pluto - Squares are challenging angles and to Pluto shows the need to make a special effort to get along with others.

She has an interest in making changes but may attempt to reap power for its own sake. Power struggles may present in the form of playing head-games and deceptive manipulation to gain control. Passive-aggressive behavior may present in the form of a dominant persona and offensive actions to others behind their back.
Trine Uranus - Church involvement and teaching can be satisfying. She likes to believe she makes important contributions, however, there exists the likelihood of risky behavior and activities.
Sun to Rising (Asc) strengthens the personality and the desire to meet people. She is inclined to be anxious and likes to travel. She is skilled to project her ego with articulation and, along with a delightful charm, she can create a magnetic type of charisma that attracts people. She's able to gain attention for ego satisfaction.
Jodi is creative in self-expression and can be easily bored when unable to express herself. Both the Sun and Rising signs are fixed which denotes a sense of stubbornness in what she sets out to do.
Determination and Physical Strength
Rising sign in Taurus shows there may be a major difficulty caused by stubborn inflexibility. Also with accepting suggestions and opinions of other people. Once she settles on an idea, she has tremendous capacity to plan and initiate it using both will-power and physical strength.
Her approach to most everything is with determination, practicality, possessiveness and to seek material wealth. Money and resources are always available. She appears calm, warm, earthy and friendly and generally keeps her true feelings under wraps.
Trine Saturn - One of Jodi Arias' primary dispositions is that of orderliness in her surroundings. She may have obsessive-compulsive tendencies needing things to be neat and organized so she can use them as efficiently as possible.
She also places a strong importance on being right, or at least to give the impression she is right. This can be a penchant for expecting to come out the victor in arguments; perceiving herself a queen or conqueror. This may even be an exaggerated compulsive behavior exhibiting itself in the form of an insistence to obtain the one-upmanship over who she perceives as a competitive force, rival or opponent.
Sextile Uranus - Wants to find a unique lifestyle and job, a niche of her own. She doesn't feel obligated to be traditional and prefers the freedom to program her own time. She may feel like less of a person when she isn't differing from others or the norm. She can work for a cause that may likely be radical or unusual.
Uranus in the 7th house requires freedom of expression in relationships. Jodi may tend to be erratic and spontaneous and have sudden flashes of inspiration and ideas. May be quick to form romantic attachments in haste while at the same time, have doubt, uncertainty and skepticism. Perhaps this is due to the value she places on her own freedom.
Uranus brings surprises, sudden and unexpected events and originality. There is also the potential for blow-ups in relationships (7th house) as it aspects Saturn (structure) which is conjoined with Mars (physical). The need to practice patience over feelings of frustration.
Saturn in Virgo in the 5th trines the Rising sign placing emphasis on material success and distinction as a priority. She may hesitate before expressing her true thoughts and feelings due to a concern with the impression she gives.
She prefers being with older and wiser people and learning new things, experiences and skills. She gets bogged down in practicality and details and enjoys games that teach, puzzles and the mysterious.
Square Neptune increases anxiety and suspicion, perhaps unconscious fears and pressures that need to be addressed. Extremes of pessimism and idealism need conscious moderation.
Although Jodi does not take failure and rejection lightly, she can discover that by reflecting on them, there are lessons to be learned. Failures are avenues of opportunity for development and progress.
Harsh Temperament and Orderliness
Jodi's temperament can be harsh and severe and she therefore needs to practice patience and humility with her close associations. She needs to learn how to effectively address obstacles that come between her and romantic interests as well as her expectations.
She stays with work doing what she is familiar with and tends to isolate herself. It takes her a while to warm up to people. When she finds that a behavior of hers is effective, she uses it to her advantage to obtain what she wants. She is fond of practicality, clarity and precision and does better in organized surroundings. There are values besides orderliness that she needs to understand so that she isn't cold and unfeeling.
Sun sextile Saturn makes her a bit more reserved and shy preferring to observe others. Increases her ability to manage others and the desire for tradition, organization and routine.
Mars conjunct Saturn - Conjunct angles offer a lot of tension that generally don't pose much of a challenge. However, Mars is purely physical and is posited along side of Saturn which demands structure posing limitations where needed. Frustration can build without an outlet of expression, however she has much stamina to complete lengthy projects.
Jodi plays both parts of being the prey and the predator and does so using the path of least resistance. Saturn in Virgo may incline her toward perfectionism, details and routine.
Square Venus - A fear of rejection causes some shyness and she isn't easily accepting of responsibilities in relationships. A conscious effort is needed for her to practice honesty, integrity and good judgement in order to gain success. She has a negative, presumptuous and cynical view of her close associations and desires to maintain a position of power.
Square Neptune - Jodi vacillates between being overly idealistic and pessimistic. She seeks reasons to not trust people and has anxiety due to the fear of rejection.

Constructive physical activity helps to reduce negative emotional episodes.
Sextile Mercury - She has good memory of what she learns. She plans for what she wants and is persistent and determined to obtain it. She may be resourceful, organized and analytical.
Tough and Durable
Mars Sextile Uranus - Jodi is able to pursue a task with persistence and endurance, even when conditions get next to impossible; she is tough and durable. This aspect helps to balance idealism and practicality. She has the will to exploit freedoms to the full within the boundaries and does not like being constrained by rules.
Uranus oppose Asc - This is the dawning of renewal in the area of interpersonal relations. She seeks connections with unusual people and whose circle of influence is extensive. They create change and revive her private and professional life. She's strongly interested in intimate relations and fascinated with extravagance. She may display sudden and erratic behaviors.
Moral principles, faithfulness and responsibility fall by the wayside as she throws herself into passionate relationships. Her flexibility is put to the test as she may not be willing to offer the same freedoms she expects for herself. That behavior is a double-standard that may lead to serious confrontations.
Jupiter trine Asc - Fun-loving, gregarious and enjoys humor and being the life of the party. Has an interest in learning and is very curious and inquisitive. Activities that have a social impact such as religion, philosophy and law may draw her interest. Jodi wants the good life and its comforts but is a bit grandiose in her plans and expectations.
Moon: Placed between the first and second house.
In the First - Her interactions with others may be very subjective and emotional. She has difficulty perceiving matters objectively to gain understanding of others. Inconsistent patterns of behavior make her unreliable. She picks up impressions and reflects the moods of others portraying herself as similar, which may be subconscious. She is strongly influenced by feelings and moods which may change fairly quickly.
Jodi needs to understand why she reacts the way she does and to learn more appropriate methods to respond to gain better self-control. Probably because she talks about her problems to people and because she is clever, others may involve themselves in her personal affairs even though she may, or may not, try to prevent it.
In the Second (house of Taurus) can become possessive and selfish when feeling discouraged and generous when confident and secure. When feeling rash and impulsive, she is wasteful of her resources. She becomes strongly attached in relationships and keeping them might be easier by running the risk of losing them such as to allow them more freedom and space.
Gifts Instead of Resolutions
Her means of income can be various, fluctuate and consist of dealing with many people. A good financial situation is necessary to her emotional security. She expects gifts to smooth over problem areas in relationships instead of addressing the issues and conflicts.
Moon in Gemini creates a restless disposition along with emotions that are constantly changing. She tends to be easily bored, her attention wanders and she is eager and curious for new experiences. This position helps the intellect to have control over emotions. She strives for pleasure and seeks to avoid pain.
Satisfying necessities in the best ways feasible keeps her preoccupied. Discussing sexual exploits is no problem and she is adaptable. Since her sense of emotional freedom for herself is very important to her, Jodi does better with partners who are not possessive.
Extravagance, Delusion and Drama
Conjunct Venus can make her romantic relations more about herself and what she wants instead of accepting the discipline and responsibilities of sharing a life. Although ambition is reduced, she likes having money to buy things such as clothes. There might be inclinations to become preoccupied with appearance which can make her shallow.
Moon opposition Neptune increases imagination and Jodi may have unrealistic ideas about others. Neptune may blur the line between truth and fiction, imagination and reality. Deception may be employed to distort the truth, suspicion taints romantic relationships, and love and affection may be difficult to express. Jodi has difficulty adapting to change and making comprises.
The moon signifies our relationships with mother, grandmother, maternal influences and family. The moon has an effect on our moods, emotions and maternal things having to do with the home. Jodi may exaggerate when talking to family and friends about her relationships, either to make a better impression, or perhaps wishful thinking.
Exaggerations and deception distort the reality of situations, not only for others, but for herself as well. She needs to be willing to make necessary adjustments responding to the reality of emotional situations accordingly. Her strong imagination may interfere and distort how she perceives events.
Neptune was in the 8th, the house of Scorpio, at the time of Jodi's birth. This placing increases intuition while decreasing financial clarity. Maintaining control over the imagination is important to keep problems to a minimum. There may be carelessness with the use of prescriptions, sedatives, pain medication, alcohol or any form of addiction.
Square Jupiter - Jupiter expands our talent, skills, expressions and waistline whether good or bad. Cher, the celebrity, is an example of expansive talents by a Moon square Jupiter aspect. This aspect may produce a sense of humor, effervescence, a fickle disposition, indulgences, excessive emotional reactions and delayed personal development.
Jupiter increases the energies inherent in the Moon and although Jodi's is in Gemini, the Moon also rules her Sun in Cancer. Thoughts and actions can be overblown. She may be inclined to exaggerate, over-extend (resources, money, time and effort), act and buy on impulse, over-do, gamble and take risk.
Moon and Jupiter in square aspect increases sentimentality and the desire to teach and share opinions.

Jodi's attitude toward relationships is more serious than normal. She may get easily absorbed and unable to let go. She may tend to be jealous or envious and possessive with feelings that fluctuate between hot and cold.
Venus square Jupiter indicates indulgence and carelessness tending to responsibilities.

Increases warmth and optimism and exaggerates about future plans. Good at communications but is easily offended. She is often suspicious of kind deeds toward her and she can be deceptive.
Jupiter in 5th enjoys play, good times and encountering much of the world. Optimism is increased and restrictions imposed by the expectation of conforming to the ways of others are difficult.
In Virgo, realizing her true potentials poses hardship and she underestimates her abilities. She may have a guilt complex about her indulgences and justify her actions by making them seem important in some way apart from herself.
Creative Role Playing
Mars in Virgo - Her actions are careful and with purpose; may be criticizing of the way others do things insisting her ways are better. Control over lovemaking is important to her and it is helpful if her partner can sometimes be spontaneous. She enjoys detailed fantasy scenarios with creativity and gusto. Whatever Jodi considers her duties are, she is intensely devoted and dedicated to them.
Conjunct Saturn allows the ability to make sustained efforts to complete tasks. Frustrations develop without an outlet for expression and are therefore held in, bottled up and repressed.
Trine Midheaven recommends sorting out primary goals and applying a concentrated effort to achieve them. Doing so will alleviate stress from problems.
Square Neptune - Has serious feelings when defeated and chalks it up to unworthiness. Neptune causes interference in physical capacities. This may be from health issues such as allergies, pms or headaches. Can also be due to drugs or alcohol, withdrawal, difficulty in communications, delusional thoughts or beliefs, shyness or an inferiority complex, idealism, uncertainty, avoidance or presumptuousness. When things don't go well, she's inclined to divert blame and criticism off herself and onto someone else.
Neptune in the 8th wants to probe the deeper waters. Can develop strange fantasies that instill fear from morbid obsessions resulting in negative emotional states. All-encompassing physical activities help resolve negative trains of thought. She needs careful handling of sedatives and pain relievers. This position of Neptune decreases clarity of financial matters creating an unrealistic view of the monetary situation.
Opposition to Venus has difficulty expressing love and affection. She suspects dishonesty and is suspicious. Projects onto people what she wants to see rather than seeing them for who they are.
Venus in Gemini - An interest in art and poetry, adds humor, has a variety of interests and acquires superficial knowledge.

She has concern for those she loves and identifies with them. It is difficult for her to let them be. She believes in the power of relationships for transformation and growth; positive changes.
Projects Her Dark Side onto Partners
The intense energy of Venus and Pluto can either entrance others or put them off. She may have issues of jealousy, and be controlling and obsessive then suddenly lose interest. She conducts her personal growth through relationships. She perceives herself a star and the partner receives her dark side who she considers the villain.
Although Jodi plays both parts unaware, she is mystified when accused of using partners to work out her personal demons and drama. She needs to learn how to restrain herself through the use of appropriate outlets to redirect deep and intense feelings.
