This chart was prepared by a professional astrologer who was given Jim Morrison's birth information, but who did not know his identity.

Born December 8th, 1943 at 11:55 am in Melbourne, Florida

Your Most Important Cosmic Factors:
Four or more planets in Air signs

Your mind is your most valuable asset; you could be an intellectual. The world of ideas is important to you. Intellectual companionship, seminars, books, magazines, films, and educational cassettes interest you. Feeding your mind is just as important as feeding your body. School can be the place for you.

TIP: In the words of Robert Anton Wilson, "You need to learn more about everything, including how to learn more."

People fascinate you and you tend to regard them in a detached manner. Consequently you enjoy teamwork and social interactions more than most folk. Sentimentality does not figure highly in most of your relationships.

You can excel in any field that requires negotiation skills. Sales and writing may be avenues of pursuit. You have an affinity for abstract reasoning, codes of law and ethics - you're very good at perceiving, comparing and communicating. You are much more objective than most people, and probably more liberal in your thinking.

Your weakness is not foolishness so much as it is indecisiveness. Too much thinking can result in lost opportunities.
Fewer than 2 planets in water signs:

Have people said that you are out of touch with your feelings? Do some folks have difficulty conveying their emotions to you? Do you tend to ignore, discount or deny sentiments?

You strive to be emotionally self - sufficient or above it all. Yet, your emotional needs are stronger because they are unconsciously and habitually repressed. Work on compassion, empathy and emotional rapport. It is even possible that you don't have much past life experience as a human being on planet earth. In that case, as you age and mature you can become more sensitive to the feelings of this world.

TIP: Water is a chief symbol for feelings. Bring the water element more into your life. Get a hot tub, water bed, fish tank, fountain, and pool. Live closer to a great body of water. Lend an ear to someone who worked with feelings. Listen to Beethoven's 9th symphony.

[Jim certainly appeared to have his share of problems in his emotional life. I am not at all versed in astrology, so it is particularly interesting to find his chart in the form of an interpretation. We can see Jim was doing his best to bring more water into his life, living for the most part on the coasts of this country. It is also noteworthy that the only sport he participated in during his school years was swimming, maintaining his love of it when he was finished with school. As for this being one of his early incarnations, I imagine this particular aspect of his chart could point to that, but in his case, we can be sure that it does not apply. ~Aimee]
Five or more planets in Mutable signs:


You're more versatile than most people. You enjoy variety and become bored easily. You're pretty good at adapting to change and going with the flow. In fact, you'd rather go with the tide than against it. Put another way, you're accommodating and obliging. You can adjust. You're good at getting the word out - by phone, by pen or whatever. It's possible that you do six or seventeen dozen things at a time. You're certainly not suited for the Zen approach of one thing at a time; nevertheless, try and focus yourself more. Establish your top two priorities in each of several arenas of your life. TIP: You'll be happier as soon as you determine exactly what it is that you want.
Sun | Contra-Parallel | Mars


You're aggressive and a person of action. You're something of a sex symbol. You have extra potential to develop athletic skills, strength and power. Find the right channel for your aggressive assertive energy.

Sun | Contra-Parallel | Uranus


Paradoxically, you're iconoclastic and yet you fit in socially. Your innovation, charisma and photogenic qualities give you big super star qualities. You will be famous; how much is up to you and your ambitions. Your stars give you much favorable publicity. You do well in acting, astrology and the media.

Sun | Contra-Parallel | Pluto


You're very competitive and not much of a follower. You can create extreme success for yourself. Your willpower, tenacity and resourcefulness are extraordinary. You'd be good at politics and big business.
mercury beyond tropic of capricorn



You have an unusual mind and a unique way of seeing and saying things. Sometimes you do not know how you come up with what you say. You could have some speech difficulties and be a bit shy and introverted. Not too many people accept your free thinking ideas. Feed your curiosity.

TIP: Try your hand at word processing, a second language, sculpting, carving, writing and multi-media management. You could cultivate a very distinctive voice.

Mars beyond Tropic of Cancer


You have the makings to become an excellent musician, writer, fine artist or performing artist.

You could find that your energy runs in cycles with major highs and lows. Sometimes you only motivate yourself through sheer willpower. Other times you have so much energy that you may not feel the need to sleep. Then you can become a dare-devil and a courageous fighter with a furious anger.

TIP: Find an exercise program that you are comfortable with and do the physical thing early in your day. This will take some getting used to. However, in time, you will speed up your metabolism and increase your energy levels.

It may be relatively easy for you to spark up a relationship and more challenging to sustain one.
Mars | Parallel | Pluto


You are a powerful force to be reckoned with. You can overcome almost all obstacles. Your boundless energy can make you a champion in whatever arena within which you compete. You're virtually indefatigable and when others are tiring you do some of your best work. Think of yourself as an endurance athlete. You're a gruesome competitor. You can pursue the most difficult goals. You have a stick to it attitude that gets you through the most dreadful circumstances.

Mars is Retrograde


There is more to your actions than meets the eye. Often times, you do not do what you are told. You do not necessarily obey all of the laws all of the time. Because of this it is important for you to decide which laws you will follow. You need a code to live by to make your life easier.

Are you a candidate for repressed and potentially explosive anger? Do you exhibit passive aggressive behavior? If so, it's a good idea for you to learn healthy and appropriate ways to deal with your anger. Otherwise, your temper may get the best of you. An appropriate channel for these angry feelings might be rigorous physical exercise. Exercises specific to your needs are in the section that follows.

TIP: Beware of displaced or misplaced aggression. Energetically you're not necessarily more docile or lazier than other people, you just use your power and strength differently. You can go off on your own tangent. You can have cycles of unconventional action and sexual behavior. Prominent persons with "retrograde Mars" include Mahatma Ghandi and Martin Luther King. Some places possibly suited to your curious Martian temperament may include Alabama, Albania, Angola, Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Idaho, Japan, and Tennessee.
Mars | Conjunct | Uranus



Excitement motivates you. You have some very fast reflexes and can be drawn to high speed machines and the martial arts. Until you deal with issues around anger it may seem as if you are injury or accident or disaster prone. You can be brutally frank. At times you are fearless, headstrong, and show flashes of uncommon ability. You've a fighting spirit and exceptional energy for unusual causes. For better or worse your friends will play a decisive role in your destiny and fate. You operate by your own rules.

You can thrive on hard work. You do not easily submit to restraint. You can be excited by very aggressive styles of lovemaking. Sometimes you feel almost irresistible urges to change or break free from commitments.

TIP: Take safety precautions and then proceed with energized daring.

You're flamboyant and strong. You can achieve the unusual and the extraordinary. You can develop supernatural sexual prowess.

The MOON'S NODES in your chart -- your past and future lives.

True Node in Leo



It is possible that in a past life you were extremely socially oriented. Too much of your energy was spent on group efforts.

In your present incarnation, you need to make greater use of your creative talents. In fact, your spiritual path is to be found in the creative world. Express your uniqueness. If you become more receptive to fun ideas, your future will be more amusing. When it comes to spontaneous adventure, go with the flow. Attune yourself to forces from the future; they are encouraging you to do your own thing. Check in from time to time and see what other creative people are up to. It is possible that in a past life you lived in Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay or even Atlantis.
