my astrological birth

here is an ongoing list of interesting info about my birth:
march 15 1977 - the ides of march is the same day of the death of julius caesar in 44 BC, so i was born 2021 years later.
march 15 is day 74 of the year (75 in leap years) with 291 (290 in a leap year) days left.
1977 == MCMLXXVII and is a common year (non-leap year, 365 days, 52 weeks and 1 day) starting on saturday. i was born on a tuesday.
march is the month of mars (martius)
march from hræd (hreðmonaþ, hredmonath [icelandic]) means quick, nimble, ready, active, alert, prompt
the march hare is also known as the mad march hare (crazy)

year of the yin fire snake
yin is the moon (the darker half, less light) and represents the female. it is born at the beginning of summer solstice.
the symbol for fire is an equilateral triangle pointing upwards
fire is represented by the vermilion bird and fire represents someone with leadership qualities, and is decisive, self confident, positive and assertive.

People born under the astrological signs of Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are thought to have dominant fire personalities. Fire personalities are believed to have good leading qualities, and also tend to be extroverted, rebellious, passionate and enthusiastic; however, they can also be moody, hot-tempered, snappy, uncontrollable and angry.
this is me in a nutshell even though i am born as pisces.

i was born in the month of the rabbit.

pisces (latin), the fishes (english), Ἰχθείς (greek), Mīna (sanskrit), MULSIM.MAḪ "The Tail of the Swallow", later DU.NU.NU "fish-cord" (Sumero-Babylonian)
sign: ♓
longitude: 330°
the sun was in the pisces sign according to both the tropical (western) and sidereal (hindu) zodiacs.
pisces is a feminine, negative (nocturnal), water (imagination, human feelings, ability to love and sustain), transpersonal (principally aware of and concerned with humanitarian and existential concerns), universal and mutable/common/bicorporal/double-bodied (resourcefulness, holism and adaptability) sign. concerning mutable sign:
They are associated with change and versatility. Individuals born under the four mutable quality signs are thought to be adaptable, impressionable, sharp, sympathetic, communicative, resourceful and restless, with a gift for seeing both sides of a situation at the same time and an immense desire for knowledge, variety and new ideas. They supposedly adapt very well to new situations, possess much flexibility, seldom have any particular agenda and are perfectly happy to fill in an assigned role. However, they are also said to be inconsistent, changeable, nervous, indecisive and irresponsible, with a tendency to get wrapped up in tiny particulars. There is also a certain duality associated with all the mutable quality signs.
Pisces is between the winter and spring seasons

Pisces is ruled by the planets Jupiter and Neptune.

the pisces astrological house is 12 of 12 whose motto in latin is Carcer (Prison) with the modern title of House of Self-Undoing. it is associated with Mysticism. Places of seclusion such as hospitals, prisons and institutions, including self-imposed imprisonments. Things which are not apparent to self, yet clearly seen by others. Elusive, clandestine, secretive or unbeknownst matters. Retreat, reflection and self-sacrifice. Unconscious/subconscious. Unknown enemies.

house 12 is above the horizon and is a cadent house:
The Greeks called the cadent houses apoklima, which literally means "falling" or "decline," because the houses were seen to be falling away from the strength of the angular houses, which were considered the be most influential because of their perpendicular and oppositive relationships to the Ascendant.
Cadent houses are therefore usually considered by astrologers as less fertile and productive places by their nature than either angular or succedent houses, and the planets located in them are seen as generally less powerful and comfortable. This view of cadency is universally found in ancient sources. For example, Paulus Alexandrinus says of cadent houses: "stars [ed: i.e., planets] found in these zoidia [ed: i.e., houses] (2, 6, 8 and 12) become inharmonious. And sometimes they bring about hostile conditions, sometimes separations and banishments..."[3]. (However, there are conditions when a planet in a cadent house can be brought up to its full strength, for example, by a reasonably close trine to a benefic planet, such as Jupiter)[4].

The notion of cadent houses as weak and ineffective also persists in medieval and Renaissance astrologers such as Guido Bonatti and William Lilly, who labeled cadent houses "poor and of little efficacy."
The twelfth house of the horoscope governs troubles, self-undoing, secret enemies, and imprisonment (for example in asylums or penitentiaries), as well as larger domestic animals, such as draught animals. Theosophists such as Annie Besant influenced astrologers such as Isabel Hickey[7] to connect this house to karma from past lives.
Western astrologers have always regarded the twelfth house as a very unfortunate place. Hellenistic astrologers called it "the house of Evil Spirit"[15] and its reputation did not improve with the Arabs or with medieval astrologers. However, Saturn the "greater malefic," does rejoice here--which means he has considerable dignity--and Valens says that Saturn in this place will bring considerable influence for honorable behavior.[16] Paulus claims that an otherwise strong Saturn located here will bring success over enemies and joy in work.[17]

Firmicus connects this house with slaves, enemies and defects[18], and Valens connects it with destitution and beggary.[19] The connection with very bad luck and material privation is almost universally found with the twelfth, as are enemies.

It is from the medieval astrologers that the connection of the twelfth house with imprisonment derives;[20] the idea is probably Arab in origin.

Modern astrologers have brought a spiritual aspect to the twelfth house that was wholly absent in the earlier tradition. This may have its origins in the Theosophical revival of present-day astrology, which had some Hindu influence. In Jyotish (Hindu astrology), the twelfth house is very unfortunate, but is also connected with sexual activity[21] and with spirituality[22]. Hindu astrology is closely connected to the Hindu religion, in which material attachments of all kinds--which are certainly the enemy of all twelfth-house significations--are considered to be a bar to spiritual progress. Much has been made of this suggested affinity by some modern astrologers, especially those influenced by the 19th-century Theosophy movement, such as Annie Besant and Alice Bailey.

in jyotish astrology the pisces is Jala (Water) with the quality Dvisvabhava (Dual)
