🎭 The Basic Approach Of Persona Charts 🎭

Each Persona is that specific archetype within ourselves:

1. Ascendant Persona: giving you more clues about your ASC (The ASC in a natal chart is a “persona” in itself, the mask, the way we project to others, first impression, our natural immediate reaction, the physical and overall appearance). The Ascendant in the ASC Persona Chart and other overall aspects and houses would give additional clues about the physical appearance. For example, a woman with ASC in Capricorn in the solar chart with ASC in Aries in the Ascendant Persona: Capricorn physical traits, but also athletic, energetic, with direct blunt movements and gestures and possibly Aries features. Going after things in an Aries manner.

2. Midheaven Persona: will tell you a lot about your most suitable career and vocation, an excellent tool for career predictions, but we must also consider there is much more to the Midheaven, it is a point describing your “life peak”, so the overall Midheaven Persona describes how you get to this peak, in what circumstances, with what tools, and as a result of what events, and what this peak means, in your current incarnation.

3. NN Persona: your destiny, your direction in life; this is generally a very eventful chart, your NN Persona, with a whole story written in it, from childhood to maturity, and a journal of all the events and lessons along the way.

4. Moon Persona: your emotional personality, needs, Yin energy. In terms of synastry: the Anima of the man.

5. Venus Persona: our “love” personality, how we behave in love, tastes, preferences. Love, beauty, talents, likes, dislikes, another level of Yin energy, sensuality, social success, money, good fortune. In terms of the synastry: a woman’s femininity, a man’s “type”. A Venus Persona ASC offers clues about the type of “beauty” that person has and likes. For example, a man with a Capricorn ASC in the solar chart, ASC in Libra in the Venus Persona: saturnian in appearance, but also beautiful and graceful, more airy than a regular Cap, more charming than the usual Cap etc. but the Cardinal flavor is getting even stronger, so is Saturn more distilled in expression. This Persona will also describe at least a big part of the portrait of his ideal woman.

6. Mars Persona: sexuality, drive, physical body, assertion, Yang energy. In terms of synastry, clues about a woman’s “type”.

7. Mercury Persona: “mental” personality, general mobility, communication, expressiveness, thought processes, skills.

8. Jupiter Persona: luck, expansion, expansive nature, growth potential, teaching, learning, travel, success

9Saturn Persona: adulthood, maturity, structure, needs, fears, accomplishments

10. Uranus Persona: freedom, originality, creativity, expansion, travel, surprises, the unexpected in your life

11. Neptune Persona: dreams, higher love, spirituality, talents, soul, compassion, redemption, illusion, deep psychology, unexpected tides

12. Pluto Persona: potential for transformation, rebirth, major life events, psychological evolution, potential for power, shared resources, deep sexuality, needs

13. DSC Persona: a profile of how you are as a partner, what partner is suitable for you and what partner you will eventually have

14. IC Persona: your deepest “heart” and heart’s desires profile, vertical look at your personality and psychology, subconscious forces at play, early life background and how you carry it in time, family ties, current incarnation theme

15. Juno Persona: description of your partnership style and needs and of your ideal and destined partner

These are just the main examples. The analysis of a Persona chart always takes into account the position occupied by that planet in the natal chart, as ruler, but also its role as part of the astrological architecture. For example, someone with Sun conjunct Neptune in the solar chart would look at his Neptune Persona to understand his overall personality, the type of Neptune associated with his solar personality. He would be a dreamer, an artist, a magician or a charismatic crook: but what kind of dreamer, artist, magician, crook? This will be shown by his Neptune Persona. Another example, someone with Pluto conjunct the ASC; his Pluto Persona would define his general personality, he is Plutonian for sure, in looks and behavior, but the way he manifests “his” Pluto will be shown by his Pluto Persona chart.


The main personalization here comes from rulership, first and foremost, and in all cases. The Moon Persona of a Cancer DSC is not just his general emotional profile, but also his DSC profile, as explained above.

How to interpret a Persona chart? Some succinct basic steps…

1. The Ascendant: first impression about that side of our personality (the Persona), the way we tend to express it spontaneously and in a natural way, how we appear to others (for example, emotionally, for a Moon chart).

2. The Descendant: what type of partner we are, related to that specific archetype, how we relate emotionally (Moon), mentally (Mercury), in love (Venus) etc. What partner we prefer in that specific interaction. And finally, what partner we tend to attract on the level described by that specific Persona.

3. The Midheaven: the best expression of that archetype, what we can achieve when we fully express that archetype, the “vocation” and “final accomplishment” of that archetype within ourselves. The “fate” of that planetary energy. How important is that archetype for us. Here we have clues about the importance of that planetary energy within ourselves, on the MC/IC axis. How we can “blossom”, how we are when we “blossom”, in terms of that archetype. From my personal comparisons, I’ve noticed when a planet/archetype is important for that person, there are significant planets/asteroids in the 4th house or on IC in that specific Persona chart. That planetary energy is a “matter of the heart” for that person, touches his/her core.

4. NN/SN: what we already master, related to that archetype, and what we need to develop within ourselves in order to fully express that planet. Also, clues about important events related to that planet.

And then we proceed with our analysis looking at houses, rulers of houses and aspects to describe that planetary personality, just like we do it with a solar chart. The Sun in the Persona chart is the planet we analyze, so its house and sign in the Persona chart is paramount in understanding the planetary personality. Looking at houses, we can see how the planetary energy manifests itself in various areas of life. For example, in a Moon chart, you can see what area of life affects that person on a deep emotional level. How he expresses his emotions (1st), what values he holds dear, how stable his emotions are (2nd), how he communicates his emotions, how connected they are with his intellect (3rd), general strong emotionality (4th), how emotional he is in love, creation, children, play etc. (5th), everyday life and health (6th) –emotional problems could be seen here if they are, how he expresses emotions in partnership/the type of emotional partner preferred (7th), how he expresses emotions sexually, transformation, secrets (8th) an so on.

Finally, the planetary aspects in a Persona chart will offer an invaluable additional insight into the aspects you have to that planet in your solar chart, and the general configuration of your solar chart. For example, if you have a Venus/Uranus aspect in your natal chart, you will notice that the aspects to Venus and Uranus in the Venus Persona chart will offer a surprising perspective on what that Venus/Uranus aspect actually means and how it is likely to manifest, in terms of psychological energy and life events.

Kuroo.

  • Black on black. No tie, open two-buttoned suit jacket that hugs his waist, the top two buttons of his shirt are undone. Tailored wingtip derbies, black and matte- polished to perfection.
    • He’s actually the one who dislikes wearing suits the most (I mean, have you seen the guy, he literally looks like he throws on whatever he has lying on his bed).
    • Oh, but if you challenge him, or if the need arises- he’s going to be the sexiest guy in the room because he sure as hell isn’t going to lose at anything.
      • Hours of research and a lot of changing rooms is not going to be for nothing. If he’s going to suffer, he’s going to do some real damage before he goes (namely to your short-circuited brain and perhaps severe blood loss via nosebleed).
    • He tried the red and black combination once, until a girl actually came up to him and asked him which host club he worked at, and he’s stuck to black from then on.
    • Those undone buttons on his shirt? Collarbones. They’re so sharp that they can slice through paper, and it makes his neck slimmer and his smirk all the sexier.
    • Everything’s been absolutely tailored at least twice, and it’s so on purpose. Can you imagine those legs- miles and miles of slim height and oh, he knows you’re staring. He’ll wink right back.
      • Now that he thinks about it, he’s never had to buy his own drink before, and thus Kuroo’s legendary alcohol tolerance was born.

Hey! I've really been enjoying your evaluation of the different breeds! I hope this becomes a regular and you eventually get through all the popular breeds, even the fairly healthy ones. So, what about Shih Tzus. While I only intend on ever adopting rather than a breeder, it's still my favorite breed. I understand they are probably pretty problematic because of their faces. Can you do them next?

If by ‘next’ you mean ‘over a week later’, then sure.

While the shih tzu is a fairly touch little breed and often long lived, it has a couple of concerns that are worth noting.

(Image source)

Let’s start with eyes because that it my biggest concern with this breed. The picture above shows a one-eyed shih tzu’s remaining ‘normal’ eye. If you look critically, you’ll see that it’s still not actually normal. There appears to be some kind of lesion on the cornea, and the eye is bulging much further out of the socket that it should be.

These bulging eyes (really you shouldn’t be able to see much white at all) are associated with lots of issues, and abnormal eyes are frequently painful. Sometimes, with minimal effort, these eyes will pop out of their eyelids. Sometimes the eyelids can’t completely close over the eyeball, even when asleep. This leads to the eye drying out, especially where the eyelids can’t close properly as the tears aren’t spread over this area, leading corneal ulcers and exposure keratopathy. All because their eyes are a bit too big, their eyelids a bit too loose and not quite enough space in their skull.

They are also prone to anatomical abnormalities of the eyelids, either rolling in or rolling out, and it’s relatively common for this breed to develop extra eyelashes or hair on the inside of their eyelids. Because there’s not enough difficulty with these eyes already.

Shih tzu are also a brachycephalic breed, and I have written at length about what that means for the dog. They are not the most extreme example, but the flatter the face, the harder it is to breath.

The round shape of the skull also predisposes to hydrocephalus, which can push the eyes more forward and laterally.

The combination of brachycephaly and mild hydrocephalus worsens the bulging of the eyeballs, and their associated problems.

Their unusual skull means that many of these dogs are poor chewers, resulting in significant dental disease. The undershot jaw doesn’t help this at all.

Compare this Shih Tzu skull above (Source)

… with this average dog skull (Source)

You can easily see how the eye sockets are shallower, and the dental arrangement is just bizzaire.

They are prone to chondrodysplasia, often with very obvious bending or bowing of the legs, particularly the front legs. This can cause significant elbow pain if the limbs are quite bent, and may require corrective surgery.

Tagging along with the chondrdysplasia, Shih Tzu are another very common patient for the spinal surgeon. While not as ubiquitous as dachshunds they were regulars. 

Luxating patellas (knee caps) are also very common, especially in individuals with bowed front legs, and although this can be improved surgically that’s not something I would like to see as ‘standard’ within the breed.

As with many things, the severity of these problems is directly linked to the extremeness of anatomy.

From a metabolic point of view, they are prone to bladder stones for some reason, but not anything particularly obscure. These stones can be prevented with special diets, so it’s possible to manage an affected dog with minimal changes to quality of life.

They also get all the common old dog diseases fairly regularly; Cushing’s, hypothyroidism, renal disease, etc. I don’t think this is an inherant problem with the breed, more a reflection that these dogs are achieving old age on a regular basis. That’s, broadly speaking, a good thing.

So the breed has their faults, but you could select individuals that are less extreme to minimize many of these.


The breed also requires regular maintenance for its coat, whether that means frequent grooming or being clipped short. It would surprise you to know how many people don’t know this.

On the whole they are dear little dogs but do show up frequently in shelters. This is usually because they are favored companions for the elderly, and elderly people will sometimes find themselves… well…deceased. There isn’t always a plan in place for their pets, especially if their little shih tzu was their only companion.
