Predictive Probabilities Astrology Research 

Example Natal Report



This Report program draws upon 576 paragraphs which interpret the places of the planets at the time of your birth, describing your personal houses, sign placements, and planetary aspects.


These astrological delineations depict your potential and how to make the most of it, or the challenges you will continue to face and how to confront and benefit from them.  Though you may change through experience, your inherent characteristics will still motivate how you act and react to circumstances.  How you handle yourself is really a clue to your success, and it is up to you to make the "right" choices.


Here are the parts which make up your chart:


HOUSES:  Govern sections of your life, e.g., your money, your health, your partners, etc.  They are also meaningful as to where your early interests lie and if they are worth pursuing.


SIGNS:  Contribute feelings or vibrations to "color" planets, e.g., MERCURY rules GEMINI and VIRGO and emphasizes their qualities of thought, travel, health, and work.  JUPITER rules SAGITTARIUS and higher education, spiritual growth, and law.


ASPECTS:  Are angles combining the planets in the SIGNS/HOUSES that trigger the manner in which you will be influenced or can handle your qualities to advantage, e.g., MERCURY (thought) TRINE (in good aspect to) JUPITER (education and law) may indicate that you can succeed as a counselor in legal matters.


A "Strength" number precedes each ASPECT interpretation towards the end of the reading.  This number synthesizes how exact is the aspect, whether the aspect is major or minor, and whether an aspecting planet is close to one of the four chart angles.  The higher the Strength, the more you are likely to feel the aspect and to live it out in your life.


You are most likely to feel and act out the Spirit Success Report's sign and house placement interpretations when the planets involved are strong in your chart.  This is true especially of the outer planets, Jupiter through Pluto.  The Astrodynes program, also available from Halloran Software, calculates the respective power and harmony of all the planets in your chart.





Planets in Signs and Houses



Scorpio Ascendant


(The Master)


Your unwavering, sometimes piercing gaze states that you are secure in the knowledge of who you are.  You like to have your own way, and if you don't get it, will devise a dozen different strategies to have it, anyway!  Your strengths are divided, and present two definite sides of the same coin:  You are a loyal friend and a bitter enemy; have high morals or little conscience; and employ your finest or most scurrilous qualities with equal vigor.  The choice is always yours.




Sun in Gemini


(Keynote:  I THINK)


You are idealistic, witty, charming, inventive and active, as well as being undependable, nervous, restless and fragmented.  Your curious mind leaves few stones unturned, for you love to explore.  You are able to teach others what you have learned, and often improved upon.  Your unpredictability and uncanny intuition stimulates the imagination of your friends; you enjoy the stir you create in social settings.  You lose chances by trading commitment for superficiality. Your flexibility should allow you to choose any partner and turn the thrill of a moment into a lifetime of significance.



Sun in the Eighth House


(The Transformer)


Your feelings run deep so there is a need for attunement with your inner self.  You may sometimes feel that you are destiny's plaything and will try to discover hidden parts of yourself through investigating "the mysteries" or take an interest in occult or metaphysical studies.  As you increase your knowledge, you will recognize a compelling demand for constant change to promote your spiritual growth.  This is often presented by material lessons to which you must adjust. In conforming, be prepared to relinquish some part of your life so that you may experience a rebirth on a higher level.




Moon in Pisces


(The Wishful)


You go with your emotions and change your desires from moment to moment, but are always hopeful for the future.  You are sensitive and easily discouraged by rebuffs; your potent imagination makes you susceptible to imagined hurts and slights.  You may adopt food or fantasies as a panacea for disappointments in the love and understanding that are as important to you as breathing.  Look for solid ground on which to stand.  You can build a life that is productive and pleasurable by giving your artistic talents commercial expression to bolster your ego as well as your purse.



Moon in the Fourth House


(The Fledgling)


Early influences in the home, particularly that of the mother, will remain with you.  Negative input will cause you to harbor resentment against authority figures.   You have the ability to turn it into something positive as you grow in spirit.  If your childhood examples are positive, you will use them to guide yourself and others throughout your life.  This is the most impressionable placement in a natal chart for the moon and the lessons learned will never be forgotten.



Mercury in Gemini


(The Versatile)


Your geniality plus a sense-of-humor contributes to social graces that make you a welcome addition to any group.  Your lack of patience encourages you to store trivia instead of knowledge, while limited concentration makes you an uncertain student.  You usually accept people at face value; since you are more interested in quantity rather than the quality of companions, you enjoy changing relationships often, but pride yourself on "never losing a friend."



Mercury in the Seventh House


(The Acrobat)


You are definitely not a loner.  Your on-going love affair with words calls for the companionship of a partner to share your mental gymnastics.  Your friends will be innovative and clever, but your indecisiveness and an inclination to avoid serious commitment may prevent you from a conventional marriage.  Use your famous intuition to select an appropriate life-mate, while your carefree attitude is still admired as "charming," rather than "childish."



Venus in Taurus


(The Voluptuary)


You love comfort, luxury and things that appeal to your senses.  You are a party-giver, with a liking for rich foods, and a particular fondness for chocolate.  Music is a major part of your life and strongly affects your moods.  Dissonance produces nervousness and harmony soothes and quiets you.  You are a traditionalist who enjoys the security of the tried-and-true and are not given to accepting the unconventional without a thorough understanding of a need for change.



Venus in the Sixth House


(The Potter)


Money may be fairly easy for you to earn, but you will have to suppress a desire to spend it as quickly as you receive your paycheck.  You'll be popular with co-workers and your employers and have a talent of making the best out of even-undesirable work environs.  Your attitude is that of a potter, intent, not on the wet clay on his hands, but on the beautiful object he will produce through patience, effort and understanding of the shape he is molding.



Mars in Aries


(The Fire-walker)


It is important to find productive ways of using your tremendous energies.  You are as much a force for destruction as you are for the preservation of the ethics and ideals you stand for.  Your aggressiveness is a two-edged sword that may turn against you if you use it impulsively or to "bully" those who might otherwise willingly follow your lead.   You may be "number one", but must decide whether you will be remembered as a valiant leader or an ignoble oppressor.



Mars in the Fourth House


(The Maverick)


You are impatient to grow up so you can do things your own way.  You'll resent childhood limitations, but if allowed to lead in family projects, take pride in achievement.  Using your considerable physical energy in a productive manner is essential to your well-being.  Competitive sports bring out the best in you, but you are a poor loser.  You need to learn good sportsmanship to fit you for the place of prominence you will strive to achieve as an adult.



Jupiter in Libra


(The Goddess)


Use your fairy gifts of beauty, charm, and grace wisely.  Your artistic talents may bring you a prominent place in the public eye.  Partners are all-important.  You extend yourself to assure that you are worthy of them.  You may fulfill your dearest wish that the world will be a happier place and its citizens find contentment because you have walked among them.



Jupiter in the Eleventh House


(The Faithful Friend)


It is not by accident that you have many friends, for you are as loyal and supportive as they are.  You are active socially and many of the events you attend will be charitable in nature.  You extend your own expectations through contacts with others.  While you seldom ask for rewards, you often receive more than you give.



Saturn in Sagittarius


(The Persuader)


You have the ability to influence others to join a crusade; as long as you adhere to your high principles, they will admire and probably follow you without question. However, you must be prepared to encounter those who disagree with your beliefs and oppose you.  Carefully guard your words and actions because they can be held against you.  The flames you ignite may become a holocaust out of your control.



Saturn in the Second House


(The String-saver)


You save everything, believing someday you will find a use for it.  Your values are high. You live your life "by the book" and may be critical of those who don't share your standards.  You may feel deprived financially, and if you encounter a need for material things early, will have a difficult time conquering a bent to frugality when there is no longer a reason.  Be aware that a miserly outlook can reflect a poorness of spirit as well as an empty purse.



Uranus in Leo


(The Trend-setter)


You are first to volunteer, to explore, to introduce, to accept and to BE first in everything.  You enjoy standing in the limelight as someone creatively innovative.  But, you will not be content to perform; you are driven to take your place in an executive position that will distinguish you from your peers.  You attract off-beat people and situations.  Be sure to know who you are inviting into your life to avoid the unhappy pitfalls of impulsively-formed alliances.



Uranus in the Ninth House


(The Explorer)


The world is your playground.  You may study abroad, have a facility for languages and are influenced by the cultures you touch.   However, your interests may be scattered, rather than diversified, and if you take on too much, your health and ability to follow through may suffer.  Set definite goals, channel your energies, and like Marco Polo, you can contribute your most exotic and useful discoveries to mankind, bringing civilizations closer together.



Neptune in Scorpio


(The Initiator)


You take great delight in other people's secrets and may use them to advantage. If you have information that needs disclosure for the benefit of others, you may expose it in a subtle, but effective way.  You may also use your knowledge to promote a principle or public figures while working behind the scenes.  A leaning towards self-indulgence needs careful monitoring so that your strength is not used in abusive ways, but as a benefactor who prefers to remain anonymous.



Neptune in the Twelfth House


(The Melancholy)


You may wish you were not so "different" from others.  A desire for seclusion links you to those who understand the rhythm of our universe and feel rebellion against the timpani of life.  Look for kindred souls in studies of psychic sciences or spiritual development.  If you have talent, you may express in an art form; then learn that "different" is often another word for "gifted" and like a moth emerging from a cocoon, you are ready to spread your wings and fly.



Pluto in Leo


(The Agitated)


Your ability to keep things at a fever pitch needs careful regulating to avoid constant upheaval in your life and the lives of others.  Your senses are keen.  Use them to recognize a need for transforming human affairs.  Take your place in bettering your environment by helping others to better theirs.  It is preferable to accept the accolades of your peers for your good work than to indulge the self-aggrandizement negatively associated with your sign.



Pluto in the Tenth House


(The Super-Achiever)


Never mind if your foresight is not as good as your hindsight!   You learn through experience and must explore a whole spectrum before making solid decisions that will stick. All knowledge you acquire can be utilized.  Try to dodge the power plays you seem to invite and resist achieving success at a price to others.  Yours is always a "never say die" attitude.  Once you find your true calling, nothing much can keep you from the success you deserve.



Leo Midheaven


You are willing to put energy, dedication, high ideals, and sustained effort into a career.  The causes that you adopt will benefit from your understanding of promotion and publicity.  Often found in positions of authority, you like to deal with big causes and big people.  The image that you present in your career must be an image of which you are proud, which can make you either a charismatic leader to be admired or an authoritative tyrant to be resented.


Develop the confidence to allow your creative energies to flow.  You can be the leader with the exciting ideas on which others depend.  You are rarely found in a career situation in which someone else is dictating the hours.  You can bring much joy to others by giving generously of yourself.  But this will not be in an unassuming way, for you do like to stand out from the crowd.  If you have a weakness, it is to cling to your beliefs or an inflated self-image even in the face of obvious failure.  A wise gambler knows when to hold his hand of cards and when to fold them.


Occupations consistent with your dramatic style of work include actor, producer, executive, sports personality, politician, entertainer, fiction writer, leader, entrepreneur, minister, promoter, artist, or diplomat.  For the most personal career guide, also consider the nature of any planets which fall in the 10th house or conjoin the Midheaven, the sign and house placements of the sun, ruler of the Midheaven, and any aspects which other planets make to the Midheaven.



North Node in Libra


(The Selfless)


You will not understand why others are promoted while you are passed by.  You must change an attitude that the world revolves around you.  Jealousy or resentment depletes your strength which should be used, not for your purposes alone, but to do for others what they cannot do.  You will acquire the stature you long for by balancing your needs with others.



North Node in the Twelfth House


(The Neglected)


You may feel your high ideals set you apart, but are often aware that you are part of struggling humanity.  If you are unappreciated, you look inward for answers, and may find a morsel of truth.  But, life requires full participation.  In nurturing others, you will realize that we are all one and when the bell tolls, it does, indeed, "toll for thee!"





Planets in Aspect


Moon trine Neptune  (Strength:  8.57)


(The Muse)


Your strange and wonderful dreams may be precognitive, since you are intuitive and can use this way of venting your feelings.  They can also be useful in creative work, where fantasy is as important as practicality.  You express spiritually, though you may not adopt an orthodox religion. You shun coarseness and identify with gentleness.  Your relationships are idealistic, but you must watch a tendency to overdramatize them, as did Romeo and Juliet.



Pluto conjunct Midheaven  (Strength:  8.57)


(The Fulfillment)


You have strong feelings on how to achieve success.  If you are uncomfortable, your instincts will tell you you've taken a wrong turn and must correct it.  If you attempt to "shortcut" or "manipulate" to reach your goals, the results will be disappointing or even destructive.  Above all, go with the flow and avoid resistance to changes that seem to threaten your accustomed existence.  Your life may seem unstructured or chaotic, but it will be exactly what you make it.



Moon opposite Pluto  (Strength:  8.46)


(The Game Player)


A belief you can handle anything prompts you to do things "your" way before you are ready to balance emotional traumas.  Your strong will tempts you to play "head trips" with others, which they see as threatening and makes relationships trying. You attract strange or unusual companions because of an inner rebellion unacceptable to society.  You may ask advice, but seldom take it.  You should carefully consider the image you present if you are to find the stability you long for.



Moon square Mercury  (Strength:  6.30)


(The Misunderstood)


You can encounter considerable frustration in getting your point across.  It is not that others are ignorant, but that you are too emotionally involved with what you are trying to say to use a logical approach.  If you express your feelings, it may be a good way to relieve tension and invite new insight to "clear the air."  It is not necessarily compromise but mutual rapport that often resolves any lack of communication that exists between you and your opposition.



Venus square Uranus  (Strength:  5.08)


(The Trifler)


A search for excitement keeps you constantly on the go.  Your flirtatious manner may not be acceptable to your companions, unless you have a partner who shares your love of adventure and freedom to explore.  A great deal of flexibility is necessary for your unions to survive.  If suppressed, your energy will demand undisciplined release, which is the stuff from which nervous breakdowns are made.  Find positive expression in the creativity with which you are blessed.



Mars inconjunct Pluto  (Strength:  4.83)


(The Unyielding)


If you seem unwilling to acknowledge more than your own opinion, it can cost you the friends, jobs, and opportunities for leadership that you earnestly desire.  You may be obsessed with your personal interests, and openly show resentment of the mistakes of others, which you think spoil your chances. Or, you may learn a lesson in tolerance, if you are the victim of a martinet.  See yourself in another's place before you act, to gain rewards instead of rebukes for your efforts.



Jupiter sextile Saturn  (Strength:  3.09)


(The Merger)


You have the best of both worlds as you fuse your dreams with practicality to fulfill them.  You accurately plan your growth to fit within sensible structures which are designed to expand as you watch your ambitions fulfilled.  You are an apt student who never tires of learning experiences that keep your life from becoming static.  You do not consider organization as limitation, and have the patience to see things through with satisfying results and justifiable pride as your rewards.



Neptune sextile Pluto  (Strength:  2.77)


(The Self-aware)


It is important that you have the support of your family and friends.  You are extremely sensitive and subject yourself to self-criticism that can be destructive and depressing.  It may be that you need professional help to build your self-esteem.  Later, you may transfer your intense feelings into knowledge you share with others.  You may pursue a career in psychiatry or psychology, but will continue to investigate your own psyche for answers as to what "makes you tick."



Mercury square Pluto  (Strength:  2.75)


(The Opinionated)


You may have the courage of your convictions, but not allow others to voice an opinion, or you can try to force your ideas without a proper foundation.  If you encounter continual resistance or the protests of those you try to impress, you have the ability to investigate your own psyche to understand your motivation and correct your actions.  You may have to modify basic beliefs, or just use your "take charge" manner to exercise self-control when it is to your advantage.



Neptune conjunct North Node  (Strength:  2.67)


(The Imaginative)


You sometimes prefer the images you create to the real world.  You are seldom lonely, since you enjoy the playmates of your fancy.  You are spiritual in nature but may be fascinated by sects or cults which appeal to your dark side. Be mindful of your addictive personality, and aware that you can be led from materiality into impractical -- even dangerous -- ways that destroy your potential for developing the special, sensitive, creative person you are.



Sun trine Jupiter  (Strength:  1.73)


(The Benefic)


You lay claim to everything life has to offer and then use your creativity to find ways of inventing "more."  Coupled with an inner-confidence that you can do anything, you may attain more than even you envision.  Still, you cannot rely on "luck" to fulfill your potential, and must provide the energy necessary for success.  Yours is a life of spiritual as well as material growth.  Share your fortune with others if you would add satisfaction to your long list of achievements.



Mercury inconjunct Neptune  (Strength:  1.24)


(The Indecisive)


Your ambivalence is often your undoing.  "Commitment" is a foreign word in your vocabulary.  Instead, you pursue excuses as to "why" you fail to live up to your potential. Your gifts of insight can turn into idle daydreams instead of helping to fulfill the grandiose plans you boast.  You may call on spiritual or occult aids in lieu of accepting responsibility, but unless you apply some practicality, you will continue to fail those who have invested in your talents.


Mars inconjunct Neptune  (Strength:  1.15)


(The Irrational)


You can let emotions get in the way of common sense.  You will attempt to deceive others or be deceived if you are too insecure to use good judgment.  Your sensitivity may add to a store of unresolved anger within.   Self-discipline is a preferable alternative to trying to escape problems through dwelling in a world of fantasy rather than reality.  If you need help to keep a focus, you may look for and accept it on a spiritual level, and grow past difficulties in the process.


Sun opposite Saturn  (Strength:  0.82)


(The Jinxed)


You may feel "unlucky" because you are engulfed by outside circumstances.  It is difficult for you to express your opinions or feelings to others who neither sympathize with nor understand you.  You are easily discouraged.  Use your inherent honesty to separate yourself from the idea that you are being "picked on."  Communication is the key to relief from your depression.  You have many fine qualities and must find a way to put them across to your oppressors.


Venus opposite Neptune  (Strength:  0.51)


(The Pretender)


You enjoy a private world of make-believe, which may seem preferable to reality.  You are capable of deceiving others in the name of "love" with the "best" of intentions.  You will never forget the pleasure or the pain of a love relationship and may continue to fantasize what might have been after it has ended.  Choose to use your persuasive nature to improve partnerships or increase your spirituality by believing or convincing others there is some good in everything.


Mercury sextile Mars  (Strength:  0.39)


(The Taskmaster)


You cannot expect everyone to keep up with your stamina or restless thoughts, and are apt to be too impatient to work well as a team member.  You may be a good employer, but only if you extend tolerance for the faults of others.  It is difficult for you to allow anyone a chance to do what you think you can do better.  You may be right, but use your quick and logical mind to reason whether it is worth the energy to prove over and o

ver that you are "Number One."


Balance of Elements and Modalities


Abundant Water


In your case, the heart rules the head.  Your emotional drives are strong and you act primarily on the basis of your feelings.  Whether your feelings are purely personal, interpersonal, or transpersonal is up to you, but generally you are a life-oriented person who feels keenly and who acts to support your family, friends, and community.  You are happiest when you are in a caring relationship with a significant other.  That person should be comfortable with the emotional closeness that you bring to relationships, while providing the structure or inspiration that you need.  Some of your friends will not be as comfortable with emotional closeness as you are, and you will have to respect their boundaries.  You have probably learned over the years how to keep your sensitive nature from being hurt.  Don't permanently withdraw, but find the people with whom and the environment in which you can be yourself.


Because of your sensitivity, you easily pick up others' thoughts and feelings.  You can anticipate others' needs before they have expressed them.  You can usually rely on your intuition when it comes to forecasting the outcome of personal and career decisions.  If you decide to use your psychic abilities for healing, learn to let go of the negative feelings that you process from others.  Since you are so sensitive, find quiet moments for private introspection in which you can reconnect with what you feel instead of what others feel.  You also find it revitalizing to be around large bodies of water.


You do have a need to stop and think things through before acting.  Make the effort to communicate with others who may have a more objective viewpoint or who could see solutions that elude you.  You can sometimes be criticized for acting from a purely personal perspective, which you could avoid by learning and respecting society's larger viewpoint.  You can be very creative in finding paths to your personal goals.  Keep the larger viewpoint in mind and later you will not have to try to rationalize to others why you chose those paths.



Abundant Air


You seem to live for mental exploration.  Discovering and communicating the connections between ideas, people, and places is your function in life.  Your active mind is good at identifying new frontiers whose basics you quickly master, so that you end up knowing something about almost everything.  You have a dispassionate nature that cooly considers the pros and cons of a situation, able to place logic above personal emotion.  From your mental viewpoint, emotions look irrational.  You make a good negotiator, sales person, communicator, arbitrator, analyst, and information processor.  Ideas flow quickly for you.  While impersonal and dispassionate, you nonetheless thrive on communication and social interaction.  At your best, you strive to understand and accept people, not to change them.  Courageously, you adhere to principles.  You appreciate culture, structure, and systems.


Your greatest strength is also your weakness, namely too much coolness from placing head above heart.  Leaders must be able to follow their hearts without being indecisive or equivocating.  And you ignore your real connection to others if you use your mental gifts to coldly manipulate them.  Try to avoid isolation by functioning as part of a team in which your logic, analysis, and communication skills are put to good use.  Work with others who may be more practical, sensitive, or passionate than are you. Don't keep your good ideas inside, but write them down and communicate them to others.



Lack of Earth


You may be so focused on the "bigger picture" that you have difficulty managing the many details of life.  Balancing your checkbook or leaving your bedroom clean may seem beyond your abilities.  Other tasks may be important, but you find it hard to concentrate long enough to complete them.  Knowing your own lack of concentration and self-discipline, you may cling to established routines because you know that you are able to do important things through force of habit.  If you do not flit from job to job, you could hold onto a job or a relationship for too long because you do not trust that you will be secure without it.  Your lack of real world perspective may make it hard for you to distinguish that which really matters from that which is unimportant, so that you sometimes focus on small things while leaving the really big things undone.  You may say that you care about money, but unless you have abundant planets in the houses of Substance, you will not execute a detailed plan to get it.  If you can avoid driving them crazy, enlist the help of those more grounded than yourself in order to turn your inspirations into reality.


A lack of planets in Earth signs can be offset by an Earth sign ascendant or by abundant planets in the houses of Substance.



Abundant Endings


With abundant planets in the houses of endings, you are probably sensitive, moody, and introspective.  You are not afraid to show your feelings and make an empathetic listener to the problems and feelings of others.  You have been around the track enough yourself to sense what others are going through and to show that you care.  You are not the most intellectual or practical person.  You can be easily swayed by an appeal to your emotions.



Lack of Life


You could have difficulty envisioning or planning for the future.  You are likely to accept the status quo, living in the past and present, but not actively striving to create the future.  Lacking your own passionate goals, you are more likely to be a follower than a leader.


A lack of planets in the houses of Life can be offset by abundant planets in Fire signs.



Lack of Relationships


Relating to other people probably plays a minor role in your life.  You could remain unmarried, be a loner, or even be an orphan.  Your thinking is probably subjective or personal, without the objectivity that comes from having communicated with many people.  Let others teach you by showing you and if they give you any feedback on your thinking, see if you can learn from it.


A lack of planets in the houses of Relationships can be offset by abundant planets in Air signs.



Abundant Mutable


With an abundance of planets in Mutable signs, you adapt easily to changing circumstances.  Mentally quick, you adapt like a chameleon to give each what they want, until you are on to the next friend or interest.  Life offers a succession of roles to play.  Skilled at diplomacy and compromise, you make a good negotiator and appear to be everyone's friend.  You actually are other-oriented, rather than self-oriented, and can be so busy meeting others' needs that you lack direction in your own life.  Concentrate on finding friends of true worth and value.  Be discriminating in your associations, in whom you choose to help.  The endless flow from your mind, tongue, and hands will then work to return real value to you, which is what you deserve.  You can probably only follow this advice just so far, though, because more than others the Universe sends you people in need, people for whom you are able to make a real difference.  The assistance that you provide to the powerless may actually be remembered long after your facile mental output is forgotten.  Your activities can also bring an end to institutions that have outlived their usefulness.



Lack of Cardinal


With a lack of planets in Cardinal signs, you may have trouble starting things.  You may be timid about developing and carrying out plans.  You would prefer to let others break the first ground of a new venture, so that you can pitch in and help once the outlines of the venture are clear.  You probably lack confidence in your mastery of the real world and survival in it.  You may substitute a rich inner life for your lack of action in the outer world.  In its highest form, you may be unusually creative or spiritually committed.  Ideas filter up as you focus on 'being' instead of 'doing'.  Watch out for the lower manifestations, which are delegating tasks to others and pitying yourself over the lot that befalls you in life as a result of your lack of direction and initiative.  Your different perspective on life gives you valuable insights that let you make real contributions wherever you are.


A lack of planets in the Cardinal signs can be offset by a Cardinal sign ascendant or by abundant planets in the Angular houses.



Abundant Angular


An abundance of planets in the angular houses helps to give you drive and initiative.  It makes you active in the external world.  Expressing your individuality is important to you.  You are probably a leader who enjoys challenges and can get things moving.
