Mark Twain - Astrology Tip Of The Week

   When I looked up the many impressive "yogas" in his chart in the classic books of Vedic astrology ("yogas" are combinations of planets, signs, and houses that reveal deep truths about a person's life and nature) his chart is full of things like this:
 
   “Amala Yoga will confer fame lasting as long as the moon and the stars exist. One will be honored by kings, enjoy abundant pleasures, have children, be charitable, fortunate, liberal, and gentle, fond of relatives, helpful to others, prudent, pious, and virtuous."
 
   All very true...
 
   Did you catch that part about being famous for as long as the moon and stars exist? Nice...
 
   Not surprisingly, the planet of writing, Mercury, takes center stage in his chart, being prominent in his rising sign.
 
   Not only that, but the planet of success, Jupiter, is sitting in his 9th house, the house of publishing.
 
And his Moon, the astrological indicator of the mind and emotions, is located in a constellation (a smaller sign within the sign of Pisces) associated with Mercury, making him LOVE to read, talk, and communicate in every way.
 
   He also has something else writers MUST possess.
 
   Almost ALL of his planets fall on the introverted, introspective side of the chart, making him have the ability and temperament to lock himself away, and retreat into his imagination, and bring forth his work.
 
   (My writing mentor of many years calls this critical skill "the talent of the room" - the ability to be alone for long periods of time - and has found that without this, no matter how otherwise talented, you can't be a writer. Twain had it in spades!)
 
   Not only that, but having the Moon in the sign of Pisces, the natural 12th sign, the sign of isolation, also helped.
 
   In fact, if all you knew about Twain's chart was that he had the Moon in Pisces, you'd know much.
 
   As I share in my program, "Signs of Compatibility," Pisces is the sign of foreign travel (which he did throughout his life), charity (which he was very generous with), empathy (which he had a great deal of, always willing to point out social injustices, and write from the point of view of the underdog and dispossessed), and financial expenses and losses (which, for a time, almost ruined him and his family).
 
   When I looked to see what Vedic sign his Moon fell into, I was not at all surprised to see it fell into a constellation called, "Revati" - which is translated to mean "the wealthy."
 
   It's typical for Revati people to make a great deal of money, mix and mingle with those of high society (Twain was friends with Princes and presidents, inventors and actors... you name it!), travel a great deal (he spent much of his life on the road, and travel is the topic of much of his work), and be a foster parent (in his later years he spent a great deal of time with the children of others).
