Your planetary aspects indicate the environmental causes where you would have a particular talent, and where you could express yourself in a positive way towards helping to preserve nature.
Chapter 1: The Sun
Sun in Gemini:
You are active, versatile, adaptable, and quick in your thoughts and actions. If you watch the squirrels in a city park, you can see how this type of energy is expressed in the animal world. Also, the expression "quick as a fox" refers to an animal which is intelligent as well as physically agile.
You are sociable and communicative, and you like to learn from others and teach them, as well as have stimulating conversations with relatives and neighbors. In the animal kingdom, the chimpanzee is the most intelligent of the apes, and has often lived with humans and successfully learned to perform human tasks. On the human level, you are high above the rest in your human intellectual ability, and have probably even been referred to as a "genius" from a young age.
Sun in the 4th House
You have a strong interest in maintaining a nurturing home for your family, and you would also be good at preserving local history and heritage trails.

You would enjoy quiet, peaceful recreation with your family, such as camping or sailing.

You might also wish to lead a children's group or a communal garden.

You would be a talented leader in these areas, and your original ideas would be welcomed.

You would feel better if you got outdoors and planted a garden and looked after it, as you have plenty of energy. You are able to acquire wealth, but you would be far more fulfilled if you directed your energy towards the care of nature, rather than personal gain.
Moon Square Saturn:
You may at times feel depressed about the state of the environment, but through hard work and perseverence, you can do something of lasting value about it. You may at some point have to deal with a threat to the security of your home, such as that caused by adverse weather. However, you can minimize this risk by making sure that you have a solidly built home in a safe location. You could also benefit by resolving any emotions about instability left over from your childhood, because then you would unconsciously attract more stable circumstances into your life.

You are very sensitive to emotional appeals from others, especially when their need is for food or nurturing; you know exactly what they need and when. Much of your activity is directed towards caring for others, especially the young, and your words have a healing effect on them.
You would understand the instinctive caring which motivates the mother birds to make trip after trip to bring back food for the little, open mouths in the nest. If humans could get back in touch with this innate desire to protect, the world would be a much more caring place.

You are able to use the fiery power of the sun to get others to submit to your authority. There are small ants called "fire ants", which bite their prey, and if the bites are exposed to sunlight, the power of their sting becomes even more potent. Similarly, the effect of poisonous plants such as wild parsnip and poison ivy are intensified in their effect on humans by exposure to sunlight, causing what is called "phytophotodermatitis".

Those creatures in nature which adapt their ways to the presence of humans are most likely to survive. Those which can live in cities and get fed by humans or live on what humans discard are even growing in numbers. Some examples are crows, domestic pigeons, coyotes, gulls, and squirrels.

Chapter 7: Saturn
Saturn in Capricorn:
You were raised in an atmosphere of conditional acceptance, in that, if you did what you were told, you were put in charge of more responsibilities as recognition, and if you disobeyed authority, you were punished. You learned both that success has to be earned and that it is worth striving for. You can function very well in serious situation, in which each person has his or her own duties, and you take pride in doing a good job.
Those species in nature which must survive in the winter or in the Arctic or in any other situations of scarcity must learn to conserve their energy, as a matter of survival. If they use their resources well, they survive, and if they make mistakes, they have to pay the price. Some have to store food for the winter, such as beavers, squirrels, and chipmunks.
Saturn in the 12th House
You could become a serious nature photographer. You would be willing to wait for along time to get just the right picture. You would be concerned about the conservation of lakes and wetlands and fish. You would be a good manager of a quiet nature retreat, where people could meditate on their oneness with nature and its creatures.

You tend to go along with a group, but at the same time, to maintain a very strong sense of self. You are very creative, romantic and original, as is your generation. Your efforts in art, theater, and entertainment are likely to be innovative and inspired by a group consciousness.
If you have gone for nature walks in the spring, you may have noticed that, when the weather suddenly gets hot, various species are mating, and that pairs of different kinds of birds choose the same small area of the forest to mate at the same time, in close proximity to one another.

Health food stores appeared and grew; exercise and yoga classes became popular, and holistic therapies emerged. There was a strong rejection of the corporate influence on the quality of the air, the use of chemicals in food, over-packaging, and pollution of the land and waters.
