Well your Scorpio placement would actually make you more Aggressive but your Libra sun and Gemini makes you more on the surface and makes you more civilize. However you Scorpio placement can make you more intimidating and piercing so its best to have it tone down and become more considerate. Thanks to your Cancer Mars placement that wont be a problem.

i also have cancer in mars. when i was younger i was timid and wasnt very good at standing up for myself. well im grown now and i have to say that some things about me has changed. though im still pint size and mostly quiet in public, i did develop a aggressive attitude. i dont like to fight,but i will fight. and if someone crossess me, i have learned to retalliate, and then let it go. if i dont get even and let go, i will go through life feeling like a loser because i didnt stand up for yourself. i also keep a very serious look on my face,but not on purpose. i think its because of my capricorn ascendnt.but i dont trust very many people and i am not at all impressed or moved by how nice a person is either. because i know that you have to be careful who you let in your life.but i am improving. sometimes i still have a problem saying no to people. but i been through some things in my life, so that explains why im aggressive. but im not a fighting person. most cancer mars people dont seem like they can fight until they snap and all hell breaks loose! we are hella strong! but i can understand why you would want to be aggressive, so that people dont try and mess with you. but i think it has to develop or something. but im a gemini sun with capricorn rising, hope i helped.

You would probably have more chance if you ignored the absolute balderdash of astrology.

ANY mars/jplanet can be afflicted by malefic planets and assertive/aggressiveness can be seen in ASPECTS not signs. usually mars hard aspect to uranus and/or mars/pluto aspects. mars in cancer is in detriment and in general tends can’t help interferring with family matters/members.
Planets in SIGNS is literally just 1/3 of the information. Just remember planets are modified by signs, where they express are houses and HOW they express are mathematical aspects. So any planet/s can be afflicted by malefic planets like Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto and this would seriously modify how the planet would function.
So this is what a natal chart PICTURE looks like. On this particular one there are also progressions (in green around the outside) and transits (in red around the outside)
by right mouse on picture, this menu comes up, so just select *save picture as* to your hard drive.
You haven’t given enough information here and I shall explain why. When people post DATA, as in a list of planets in signs, it actually means very little. Why? well that’s ONLY 1/3 of the information needed to respond to you properly. Then some people post DATA/degrees of planets (slightly better) but then *no signs* these planets are in. Then some people post DATA/Degrees/ signs. What this does then, it requires ME (& other astrologers on here) to mentally calculate what mathematical aspects these planets are making to each other. Which is time consuming and unnecessary, when all that is needed is to SEE the natal chart PICTURE. Plus there is always missing data, especially Ascendant/Midheaven signs
Some people prefer easier/different sites than astro.com which is OK but they are ALL *flawed* in my view and I shall explain why, so we are all clear on this. Astro.com have THE very best free charts available. Cafeastrology charts, where do I start – they have no clear house divisions (very important) they show no retrograde planets (unheard of) they never put chiron on the chart wheel, they never show detriments, fall, or exalted planets, they don’t give the elemental balances or quadruplicities either, plus they don’t allow any flexibility in reducing orbs. You *cannot add* Vertex, Juno, asteroids, BML. Inferior, Inferior and Inferior please do NOT use cafeastrology charts or 0800 or alabe or astrotheme!!
You have to accept we are ALL multifaceted human beings and what astrology does is break things down, compartmentalises things into smaller chunks for you to digest. These chunks are called mathematical aspects these 10 planets make to each other. This is the *MEAT & BONES* of astrology. Just remember planets are modified by signs, where they express are houses and how they express are *aspects* Planets to not act alone as if stranded on a desolate island, they interact and express as modified energies. For me astrology is a form of psychology, a way to help you understand you, your motivations and ways of thinking/feeling In future please consider posting a chart rather than just little bits and pieces of it
Astro has an interactive model for a Free interpretation, from free horoscopes tab select *astro click portrait* this brings up your chart whereby you put the cursor on a planet and it brings up a pop up box about that planet and its mathematical aspects. Next try from free horoscopes tab, select *personal portrait* gives you a written format/explanation. Next go to cafeastrology and do the same, but do *not* use their charts as they inferior.

I’m a Gemini, what types of jobs would fit my personality?
I don’t believe in the whole horoscope thing, but I find that my personality pretty accurately fits the description of a Gemini. Having said that, I am in college right now and not all too sure what to do career wise. I was thinking law or business but I’m not to sure. What other professions out there that I havent listed suit a Gemini’s personality needs? I like social sciences (psychology, sociology, ect.). Just a bit of extra info

Why is Midheaven So important for Career?
Career matters do not go off your SUN sign but your MC signs and final dispositor
Misconceptions about what astrology can do
perhaps this thread will help you understand a little more
Now basically your sun sign is your ‘core beliefs, values, ego’ and Asc is your physical body, mode of expression and mask and persona that we all wear and hide behind, but definitely not what’s going on underneath. What’s going on underneath is your Sun sign. Moon sign, house placements and aspects describe your emotional and intuitive responses, also describes your view of your mother, as saturn describes your father by sign and house position. So, think of a glass milk bottle the bottle is your Asc and your sun the milk, but the milk still has to ‘come out’ through the glass neck of the milk bottle….
Now aspects within a natal chart represent ‘facets’ of our personality, because we are all multifaceted beings. What these do is ‘break down and compartmentalise’ these facets into smaller bite size chunks. This does take quite a lot of self analysis and objectivity to ‘see yourself’ and why you do certain things and behave in certain ways. Actually it can be quite good therapy…
