The interpretation of this astrology chart begins below. Your Merlin Astrology Report would be different based on your birth data and would encomapss the same elements, chapters, and analysis as shown below for Marilyn Monroe.
This report is an astrological assessment based on Marilyn Monroe's birth data only, it it not a character assessment based on real life or known facts.
With respect to the actual Merlin Report that you will receive with your order, you will find that the interpretation of your chart is written in simple language, uncluttered by astrological jargon. If a statement appears to contradict another statement, then you exhibit these opposite qualities at different times in your life. For example, a statement that you are highly sociable and gregarious and a statement that you prefer solitude seemingly contradict each other; this means that you vacillate, and need both sociability and solitude at different times.
The astrological factor that the interpretation is based on is also given. The astrological factor is given for the benefit of astrologers and students of astrology. If you are not a student of astrology, then obviously the factor will not be meaningful to you, and you can ignore it.
If you find this interpretation of your birth chart interesting and informative, you might want to discuss your birth chart with a professional astrologer to learn more about the astrological influences on your life.

Chapter 1: General Characteristics
for Marilyn Monroe
Your fundamental needs, values, and orientation towards life are symbolized by the four astrological elements. Each person has their own unique balance of these four basic energies: fire (warmth, inspiration, enthusiasm), earth (practicality, realism, material interests), air (social and intellectual qualities), and water (emotional needs and feelings).
Your "elemental make-up" is described below. Remember that most people are "unbalanced" or lopsided, and if you are lacking or deficient in a certain element (or elements), it simply means that you need to consciously develop that aspect of yourself to learn to appreciate and/or to work harder in that dimension of life.
Sometimes we overvalue the element that we are least endowed with, sensing it as a lack within ourselves, but more often we neglect or ignore it. The qualities described below will be reiterated and explained in more detail in the following chapters.
At times you can become very ungrounded, living in your thoughts, ideals, and world of abstract ideas far removed from the real, physical world. This is not necessarily a bad thing, if you can take your ideas and implement them in a consistent, productive, practical way. One of your basic challenges is: to come down to earth. However, tangible commitments and meeting the demands of living in the material world don't come easily to you.
You identify more with your spirit or intellect than with your physical self, and you may have a poor relationship with your body. Doing regular, rhythmic exercise, working with plants, spending time to prepare satisfying, nutritious meals, getting massaged often, or whatever else you find helps you to feel connected to your body and to the earth, is very beneficial for you.
As you will read in the next chapter, you express yourself in a confident, spirited way which, combined with your verbal abilities and wit, makes you quite and entertaining and convincing communicator.

Chapter 2: How Marilyn Monroe Approaches Life and How You Appears To Others Astrologically
The following is a description of your basic stance towards life, the way others see you, the way you come across, the face you show to the world. In Chapter 3 you will read about the "The Inner You: Your Real Motivation", which describes the kind of person you are at heart and where your true priorities lie. Read this chapter and the next one and compare them - there may be significant differences between them, in which case "the inner you" may not shine through and others are in for some surprises when they get to know you at a more than superficial level. This chapter describes the costume you wear, your role in life, while Chapter 3 talks about the real person inside the costume.
Ferociously proud and somewhat vain, you like to be impressive and to be seen as Somebody Special. You are not timid, meek, or self-effacing, and are rarely content being in the background or in the subordinate position. You are a natural leader, and do not take orders from others very well. You must have something of your own, something creative - be it a business, a project, a home or whatever - that you can develop and manage according to your own will and vision. Whatever you do, you do it in a unique, dramatic, individual way. You like to put your own personal stamp on it.
You also have a very strong sense of dignity, self-respect, and personal honor and are deeply offended if someone treats you in a humiliating or dishonorable way. You will rarely confront the offender - you are too proud to do so - but you will lose your affection and respect for them. You dislike pettiness and hate to be snubbed or ignored.
You admire others who are strong individuals like yourself. When you befriend someone, you are tremendously loyal, sincere, and willing to go to extraordinary lengths to make that person happy. You are very giving and generous, but your gifts are never anonymous - you expect recognition and appreciation for them. You also expect the intense loyalty that you offer to your dear ones to be reciprocated. However, you often have trouble working with people who are as strong as yourself, for you do not really cooperate or share the leading role very easily. If you are not in the leading role, you aspire to be and will compete with the person who is.
You have great heart and courage, and people often look to you for strength, encouragement, and affirmation. You always have your best face forward and rarely allow others to see you hurting, disheartened, or vulnerable. You also have a very strong need for love, admiration, appreciation, and praise, although you don't like others to realize just how important it is to you.
Your outlook on life tends to be very personal and rather self-centered. Your own self-expression, self-actualization and self-realization interests you more than anything else. You feel that if you do your best where you are, the rest of the world will take care of itself.
You can get by in life almost by personality alone. There is a radiant, warm, attractive quality about you that others can't help responding to favorably. Usually you appear confident and clear about who you are, and it's very difficult not to notice you or feel your influence when you are around.
You may feel that personal entanglements are interfering with the pursuit of your goals and choose to lead a life on your own. But at the same time you often may feel lonely and alienated by others.

Chapter 3: The Inner You: Your Real Motivation
Though you care very much about your dignity and the way you are perceived by others (as described in the previous chapter), you have a very mischievous, playful side that pokes fun at anyone taking themselves too seriously (including yourself!). Also, although your great loyalty was mentioned in the previous chapter, fortunately you are flexible and playful too, so consequently you do not allow your commitments to become too burdensome.
You are, in many ways, an eternal child. Your mind is bright, alert, curious, flexible, playful, and always eager for new experiences - and your attention span is often quite brief. You grasp ideas quickly and once your initial curiosity has been satisfied, you want to go on to something else. You crave frequent change, variety, meeting new situations and people.
It may be hard for you to decide just where your talents and true vocation lie, for you have a multitude of interests and are loathe to limit yourself by concentrating on just one. You are easily distracted by all of the other fascinating possibilities. Your curiosity and restlessness propel you into many different experiences in life, and you are willing to taste or try anything once. Doing the same thing over and over again, even it is something you do well, is real drudgery for you.
You live in your head a great deal - reading, observing, thinking, spinning ideas around - and you need mental stimulation every bit as much as you need food and drink. In fact, if you had to choose between a good book or movie and a good lunch, you would very likely choose the former. You have a creative mind and often live by your wits.
You are also a very social creature, with a strong need to communicate and to interact with people. You enjoy using and playing with words and have a real flair for getting your ideas across in a clever, interesting, articulate manner. Writing or speaking are areas you have talent for.
You also have a rather light and mischievous sense of humor, and often do not take anything too seriously. Though you crave emotional involvement, it is hard for you to achieve it, for you are frequently unwilling to commit yourself to anything, to take responsibility, or to limit your personal freedom and mobility.
Your happiness lies in using your creativity and your language skills to communicate something meaningful, to teach, inspire, or bring people together. You have an unbiased mind and can usually offer a fresh, clear, uncluttered perspective. Your faults are your lack of constancy and persistence, and your tendency to overlook or ignore deep emotional issues and other people's feelings.
Your career, reputation, and public image are very important to you. You have a strong desire to be influential or make your mark on the world. The merely personal sphere does not satisfy you; your ambitions include making a major contribution and receiving broad recognition for your unique effort and gifts. You may undervalue the personal or inner side of life.
You tend to see things from your perspective only and to be rather subjective. You also enjoy talking and expressing your views but you don't always listen as well. You have a clear mind, a love of learning and new experiences, and need constant mental stimulation and activity.
Your physique tends to be sensitive and your vitality may be a bit low. You are very impressionable and somewhat unrealistic. Sometimes your idealism could be confused or impractical, and you can be rebellious or else apathetic.
You have the ability to stand on you own feet and use the power of your own personality to attain success. You need to be a leader and have a strong desire to obtain power and authority. It is imperative to you that you be out in front of the parade.
Maintaining contact with your friends and associates is very important to you and you keep in touch with them through your shared interests. Your friends are likely to be very supportiveto you in everything you do.

Chapter 4: Mental Interests and Abilities
You have an extremely active, lively and versatile mind with a multitude of interests and an inexhaustible curiosity about life. You are quick to grasp new concepts and equally quick to lose interest in an idea or project once your curiosity has been satisfied. You like to taste a little bit of everything -concentration and disciplined study are not your strong points. Mentally restless, you may change jobs or locations frequently, or do work that involves movement, travel, and variety.
You have a flair for language, playing with words, speaking, writing, or teaching in an entertaining and informative way. You also enjoy meeting new people, conversing and learning a little bit about them, and you work well with the public.
Sales, advertising, communications, journalism, or public relations are good areas for you. Your ability to be articulate and to communicate well is one of your greatest strengths.
You think a great deal about your career, your reputation and public image, and the way you make a contribution or impact on the world at large. Public speaking or communications of some other kind is likely to be an important aspect of the work you do.
Your sexuality probably developed early in life and problems of love could be on your mind a lot. You may adopt a somewhat pompous and flirtatious way of speech and the subject "sex" may come up repeatedly during the course of your conversations.
You have a strong desire to keep in contact with like-minded people and tend to discuss love problems with them. You seem tobe especially drawnto children and young people and are always welcomed and appreciated by them.
You tend to idealize your actions or situation, which could lead to misguided endeavors. Uncertain about your goals, you have a tendency to stray from your original purpose and could be disillusioned with the results.
You have a talent for organizing and the ability to sum up conditions quickly. You are curious and inquisitive, but tend to criticize others and to interfere in everything. You have to learn to fight the tendency of finding fault with others.

Chapter 5: Emotions: Moods, Feelings, Romance
You are not easily moved by emotional displays and can be curiously detached from your own and others' emotions. It's almost as if you could turn your feelings on and off at will so you should be careful not to leave the switch "off" too often, for you could easily become too impersonal. Family ties and attachments are not as important to you as they are to most people and you often consider your friends closer to you than your blood relatives. Certainly, your sympathy and concern extends much beyond your immediate family. In your personal relationships, you insist upon a certain amount of independence and the freedom to pursue friendships with as many people, of both sexes, as you choose. You do not appreciate a jealous, possessive partner.
You feel comfortable in an atmosphere that is open and experimental, and you have little taste for convention and tradition.
You depend a great deal upon other people for emotional support and you have a large "family" of friends that care about you and treat you as kin. The women in your life are particularly important to you, and your relationship with them powerfully influences your sense of security and happiness. You may be overly dependent and unsure of yourself without a close partner.
You often feel that you must do something or be something other than what you are in order to receive approval and acceptance from others. You are very sensitive to criticism and easily feel left out or neglected, and though you may appear cool or distant, you actually care very much about being included. Because you are so sensitive, it may seem easier for you to withdraw into a shell rather than risk the emotional bumps and bruises that can occur when you let others really know you in an intimate, personal way. Your reserve and caution make establishing a close emotional rapport with others difficult for you, and you become very attached to the few people you consider "real friends". You can gain inner security and strength through periods of solitude if you view them as times to nourish yourself and develop your own interests, rather than as times of loneliness.
Emotionally you are very sensitive, dreamy, gentle, and easily influenced. If you are with harmonious people and in congenial surroundings, you flourish, but negative people or dissonant energies very quickly bring you down. Your emotional boundaries tend to be very loose and permeable. You feel what others feel, and physically you are very open and impressionable. Standing up for yourself, saying no when you want to, and recognizing and respecting others limits and boundaries are important lessons for you to learn. Beware of a tendency to martyr yourself out of pity for someone else's problems.
Your emotional life tends to be a bit strange and you are likely to fantasize a lot and to weave a web of illusions. Easily swayed by the needs of others, you must learn not to take on others problems and also guard against others deceiving you.
Your love feelings and desires are easily aroused but it may be difficult to sustain your romantic interest in a relationship after the initial, exciting "chase and conquest". You enjoy a partner who is dynamic and alive, someone with a strong independent streak, and you do not like things to become too peaceful or predictable in the love arena. You want to see sparks fly once in awhile, even if that means instigating a fight.
You are attracted to foreigners, exotic places, traveling, and to people who can expand your horizons, teach you something, or show you places and worlds you have never experienced before. Sharing a philosophy or ideal with your love partner is important to you.
Also, you feel a love and kinship for people everywhere, not only with your own family, nationality, or group. Finding similarities and making links between people from differing backgrounds or with different perspectives is a gift of yours.
You love to laugh, celebrate, and enjoy yourself with your companions. Emotionally open and easygoing, you consider just about anyone a friend or potential friend. Your good humor and friendliness make you quite popular and well-liked. At times, you overdo the festivities, but you rarely regret this.
You tend to make up your mind quickly in matters of love and affection and may fall in love at first sight. Your expectations about romance can be intense and you are inclined to exaggerate and could have arguments about your loved ones.

Chapter 6: Drive and Ambition: How You Achieve Your Goals
You are noncombative, noncompetitive, and something of a pacifist. You will give something up rather than fight for it. You may seem weak-willed or ineffectual, for you do not have a strong ego drive for personal achievement and material advantage, or for winning at the expense of someone else. Being first, being best, being on top doesn't mean much to you, and you can be quite happy in a supporting role, working for the benefit of others or for a cause that you believe in. You are gentle and impressionable and are motivated by less mundane and less tangible things than most other people. You may have difficulty formulating clear, definite goals for yourself and making your way in the world. You have many dreams, high ideals, and a strong mystical or religious impulse. You also have a creative imagination and can successfully apply yourself to art or music. You have a sensitive physique and need to maintain good regular health habits in order build strength and stamina.
You meet numerous challenges and possibly defeats in pursuit of your goals and desires, and your setbacks often occur because you've been too rash or intent on working your own will regardless of the impact on others. You are intense and passionate, and simply don't know when to stop sometimes! Recklessness with others can be a problem for you.
You possess the gifts of endurance and perseverance, the willingness to work hard and seriously to achieve your objectives. Once you decide you want something or make a commitment, you'll do it "even if it takes forever". Self-discipline is natural to you and you instinctively realize that any creative achievement is "10% inspiration, 90% perspiration". You choose practical, realistic goals and pursue them step-by-step in a well-planned, orderly way. You like to concentrate on one thing at a time and do a thorough job. You enjoy working in solitude, and often feel your best work is done when you are alone.
You have a streak of the pacifist or defeatist in you. Learning to assert yourself in a strong, clear, forthright manner, and developing stamina in the face of obstacles are necessary to counter such tendencies. To accomplish all you are capable of, it would also be very beneficial for you to work on building up your physical energy. Get regular exercise, eat healthfully, get plenty of rest (something you may require more of than average), and especially avoid activities and people that dissipate and waste your time.
You are a bit restless and always seem to be in motion. You probably had the desire to go your own way early in life, wanting to learn from your own mistakes and experiences. Your plans for the future are far-reaching and you may choose an unusual career.
You are very ambitious, diligent and industrious and seem to be blessed with a good dose of luck. You tend to succeed with your objectives on a big scale and can expect advantages, advancements and promotions in your occupation.
You are very adaptable, and because of your tactful, obliging and cordial manner, others like being around you. You love to be involved with associations or societies in the pursuit of common interests.

Chapter 7: Growth and Expansion: Areas That You Enjoy
Your strength lies in your ability to be innovative, open to new progressive concepts, willing to experiment and to reject customs and traditions when they cease to serve any positive function in the present. Also, you have an expansive view of the world, one that includes humanity and not only your own small, personal circle.
You are a very sociable person, and you need to reach out and communicate with many different people. You are interested in what others can teach you and are drawn to those with more knowledge or breadth of experience than yourself. You expect a high level of integrity and sincerity from others and you do not tolerate pettiness or hypocrisy in your close friends or marriage partner.
You also need freedom and want a partner who will support your need to keep learning and growing, who will not limit you or set too many boundaries. Your marriage is likely to be very satisfying and rich.
You are big dreamer, highly idealistic, and open to anything. You can be extremely impractical and gullible, and will believe anything is possible no matter how "far out" or impossible. You can be an escapist, forever looking for some Shangri-La. ("Somewhere Over The Rainbow" could be a favorite theme song of yours). You need to balance your dreamy idealism with temperance and practicality in order to succeed in life. You are also a very generous, giving soul and sometimes find it difficult to limit your charitable impulses.

Chapter 8: Areas That Challenge You Or Are Difficult For You
You both yearn for, and fear, being emotionally vulnerable with others and experiencing deep emotional intimacy. Trusting others and letting yourself be known in a deep way doesn't come easily to you, and sexual inhibitions may result from this. You are very self-protective and may be compulsively secretive. Learning to relinquish control in personal relationships, and to be completely open, are important tasks for you.
Your childhood or your relationship with your parents was restrictive, unloving, or unhappy in ways that may prevent you from allowing other people to get close to you in later life. You felt deprived in some manner, whether or not you actually were deprived in some way. Emotional separations or repression of your needs and feelings may typify your early life, at least as you remember it. Forgiving your parents and/or letting go of any resentments you have about the limitations you experienced early in your life is crucial. Also, you need to build your own solid foundation, and investing time and energy into your home, domestic relationships, and inner life can help you accomplish this.
You strive and struggle a great deal with your ideals or spiritual aspirations. You may go through periods of self-denial, asceticism, and serious study of religious philosophy and spiritual practices, or you may lose heart and become cynical about religious ideals, but never quite divorce yourself completely from your idealistic concerns.
You tend to be very sensitive to your surroundings and are strongly influenced by the prevailing conditions around you. You may feel that you have more obligations than you can properly handle, and that it is hopeless to even try.
Your disposition is somewhat melancholic and you could have a rather pessimistic outlook. You have an inner need to be alone and to deeply meditate on your thoughts. You take life seriously and may have been taught early on to learn from your mistakes.
You are inclined to be quite reserved and cautious in your relationship with others. But you also may have an exaggerated regard for other peoples views and could give them more credence than they are worth.
A bit stubborn and self-willed, you persist no matter what obstacles you have to overcome. You have great endurance and strength and force yourself to work very hard. You could be somewhat one-sided in the pursuit of your objectives.
Now we will discuss patterns of behavior which you instinctively and habitually revert to when under stress - a mostly unconscious process and one which you are apt to overdo because it is so familiar and thus easy for you. The direction you need to follow in order to develop balance, greater awareness, and wholeness is also described.
When under stress you are apt to close down the flow of your emotions, ignoring your needs and feelings in order to do what you perceive as your duty or simply what the practical realities of the situation require. This can lead to a certain rigidity and hardness. If overdone, self-control, self-discipline, or an exaggerated concern over what society, family or others expect of you makes life more a burden than an adventure.
Developing tenderness, caring, feeling, and the feminine, nurturing aspects of yourself is an important step in your unfolding. You need to learn how to nourish and lovingly attend to both yourself and others. Letting yourself be taken care of sometimes is okay!
The arena you are most likely to wrestle with these issues is deep within yourself, as you face your own demons, fears, and struggles - those aspects of life that are not easily or readily shared, those parts of yourself or your life that you keep hidden from public view.
The qualities described above can also be beneficially channeled into some sort of charitable work, altruistic service, ministering to people in need.
The following are specific activities that will support you in your growth. These may or may not feel natural to you, and often there is some feeling of resistance or initial awkwardness about doing these things, but they are important on your path to wholeness.
Your path to wholeness involves confronting the dark and hidden aspects of yourself - bringing them to light and transforming yourself in the process. Healing abilities develop as a result of your willingness to experience and transform deep emotions such as grief, anger, and pain. Also, seeing the darkness and pain in the world and helping to bring light to it without becoming overwhelmed is a significant issue for you.
You tend to feel inferior and your attitude in the presence of others could be a bit negative or weak. You are inclined to shy away from groups and would be a rather quiet and passive member of an organization or association.

Chapter 9: Originality and Imagination
Areas Where You Are Creative, Unique, Unstable, or Compulsive
Your life is characterized by sudden disruptions and events which change the direction of your life quite unexpectedly. You may be impatient and reckless at certain times, impulsively acting out your urge for new life and change. You are an emotionally complex person and you are capable of intense, unexpected outbursts of feelings and desires.
If you share material assets and resources with another person (as in a marriage or business partnership), your fortunes are likely to fluctuate wildly or change quickly for better or worse.
You are yielding, gentle, and impressionable. You tend to "melt" into your surroundings, and do not make a very powerful, vivid impression on others. Especially while young, you may not have a very clear sense of identity.
Sensitive and compassionate, you do not enjoy fighting and no matter what you profess, you are a pacifist at heart.
You may have a deep aversion to groups, associations, clubs, or organizations of any kind. Any such group you become involved in is likely to be either for intense personal growth, change, and healing, or centered around social change and revising society in some manner.
Your emotional excitability is very high and you require a lot of rest and relaxation to function properly. You are a slave to your feelings and follow your spontaneous inspirations, but tend to carry them out without the proper planning beforehand.
You have a tendency to talk to everyone and become popular very quickly. You seem to be in constant motion and have the ability to express the joy you feel wholeheartedly. You enjoy excitement and could find sudden happiness in love.
You are very idealistic and tend to abandon your hopes too easily. Not very realistic in your undertakings, you are inclined to be a bit wasteful and also may take risks by gambling. You may confuse your wishes with reality and act according to your wishes.
You are subject to strange ideas and could find it difficult to tell what is a delusion and what is not. You are likely to become obsessed using psychic methods to determine reality and always are looking for answers in spiritual realms.

Chapter 10: Generational Influences: Your Age Group
In this chapter we will discuss characteristics and traits of your generation. Of course, you may not share all of the characteristics of your generation, but you are greatly affected by the tone that is set by your generation.
The first topic is "The Subconscious and Emotional Drive of Your Age Group". In this section we will describe a deeply felt urge, even compulsion, of your age group. This deeply felt drive comes to the surface with great force and power, and consequently leaves in its wake considerable upheaval and change. The second topic is "The Ideals and Illusions of Your Age Group", that describes the dreams, fantasies, and spiritual aspirations of your age group. The third and last topic is "What is New and Different in Your Age Group", which describes areas in which your age group tends to be innovative, inventive, unusual, and also where it may be unstable and unreliable.
The characteristics described below may affect a group of people for anywhere from a few years to about 30 years. There are one or more different astrological factors described in each of the three sections below.
The Subconscious and Emotional Drive of Your Age Group
You are part of a 25 year group of people who have strong feelings for home and country. You are a sentimental group, and feel deeply attached to your family and your country. You cling to the familiar, are distrustful and fearful of different cultures, and consequently a great deal of racial and ethnic prejudice is common among your age group.
Your need for closeness and togetherness runs very deep and causes you to bond closely to family members and old friends, and also makes you prone to be involved in mass movements and group activities because they feed your largely subconscious need for acceptance and support by others. Unfortunately, your age group is easily carried away by a group frenzy and many of you often lack the integrity or courage to think and act in an independent and rational way.
Your generation is very emotional and tenderhearted. Many of your group sacrificed a great deal to help your children or other family members, while other generations are unwilling to give as much as you have. Your tender feelings and regard for the well-being of others can spur your age group to make contributions towards the feeding of the hungry, care for the neglected, and support for the needy, particularly children and mothers. You are a group of people with a strong heart and a helpful hand. Many of you have parents and/or children who are not nearly as supportive and helpful; many of your contributions are not completely appreciated or even go unnoticed.
The Ideals and Illusions of Your Age Group
You are part of a 14 year group of people that have a very vivid and colorful imagination. A love of color, fashion, and drama is very strong. Your generation gave tremendous impetus and growth to Hollywood movies and other spectacular arts. Most people of your age group have many fantasies and naive, starry-eyed ideas about movie stars and other idols. Needless to say, this tendency to idolize someone can lead to big disappointments and those of you who married early in life projected your fantasies on your spouse, and had to gradually face the realities as you matured.
What is New and Different in Your Age Group
You are part of a 7 year group of people who are very creative in the arts, music, literature, and philosophy. Your age group draws upon some new inspirations and has a talent for weaving many seemingly disparate styles into a new, refreshing synthesis. Much of the creative inspiration of your period is very refined and sensitive, and some of the greatest artistic and literary works of your generation will receive full recognition only after many decades have passed. You are a group that is primarily concerned with the quality of your creative endeavor rather than its distribution and marketing.
