Astrology for Elizabeth Gilbert
When present in the horoscope, the aspect points that Halloran Software has recently added - Chiron, the Moon's Nodes, the Black Moon Lilith, and the Minor Square Aspects - appear to make major contributions to bringing a person into contact with higher consciousness. The chart of prolific writer Elizabeth Gilbert is one of two charts that will illustrate this effect. You may be familiar with Elizabeth's 2006 travel book Eat, Pray, Love, which sold ten million copies and which spent over 200 weeks on the New York Times Best Seller List. Elizabeth's newest book is called Big Magic.
What appears below is Elizabeth Gilbert's Personal Path natal report from which the standard placement and aspect interpretations have been removed, leaving just our new add-on delineations. The close aspects that apply most strongly appear at the start.

You need to find friends who are not losers, who are not into getting wasted at parties. If you think about it, there are positive, constructive things that you love to do. If there is something that has piqued your curiosity, then take an afternoon to investigate it. Do you need to sign up for classes or can you plunge right in?

With this aspect, you should experience a fascinating life with many changes.

As a child you were quite a handful for your parents with your impulsive behavior. A girl with this aspect could have been a tomboy. You do not allow yourself to be limited by the "accepted standards of femininity." You develop an interest in the different forms of sexual expression. Even if you have some physical limitation, you can be an outstanding athlete, displaying creativity and spontaneous improvisation. You are intelligent and highly coordinated. Hockey player Wayne Gretzky with this aspect said, "I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been." Chiron can relate to healing and it is interesting that Wayne Gretzky's recuperative abilities tested much higher than those of any of his teammates. His career is partially but not entirely explained by all the hours that he put into hockey when he was young. In your career you could make innovations relating to movement or transportation. You are flirtatious and should have many possibilities to choose from. If Mars has challenging aspects, there is a danger of marrying an angry, abusing spouse, from whom you should immediately separate. You have plenty of courage and can make it your business to help the unfortunate.Mercury trine Neptune (Strength: 1.15)
Neptune sextile Pluto (Strength: 0.91)Moon sextile BlackMoon (Strength: 0.83)You have confidence in yourself, in what you can do.

You are extremely flexible and find it easy to adapt to new opportunities as they come along. You are not wedded to the past. You will probably uproot and move several times in your life. Your great gift is that no matter where you start from, you have the ability to keep growing. If you had to pay your dues along the way, it just helps you to appreciate what you have. You can be a high-strung overachiever with a need to relax. Meditation or journal writing are a better way to reduce anxiety than taking drugs. You would make a good public speaker, able to get your message across in convincing fashion.
