In Ms. Greene’s book, The Outer Planets and their Cycles, section #5, Liz admits that her “Mercury is in Gemini”. Based on her birthday of September 4th that cannot be literally true Mercury is never that far away from the Sun (which in September is in Virgo), so she must mean is that it is in its the third house or Gemini.
When we originally rectified her chart, we put her Mercury in the 9th, and Sagittarius. Now we have to switch it around 180 degrees and Mercury is in the 3rd house (vivification or the ability to make things come alive). Instead of a 28 Scorpio ascendant for 1 PM, she now has a 15 Cancer for 1 AM and the Hyperion Symbol of “candles in a shadowy room.” This highlights her ability to be attuned to opposite conditions with the fine skill which discerns each. Gavin McClung gives this symbol, the keyword of “Sensitivity.”

Greene was a deviated bowl; now she is a bucket with a Uranus handle at 12.33 Gemini [HS] “antique seals and sigils” commenting on her conscious sense for dealing with the unknown and forgotten pasts. As this is in the 12th house or the hidden world of the psyche, her focal determinator Uranus allows her contribute Jungian archetypes and myths in self-awareness.
Opposite her Uranus handle is a preponderance of planets in Sagittarius (Administration) in the 6th house where her daily work as a psychologist cum astrologist encourages her to travel both physically and metaphorically to expound her theories and techniques. Her South Node (SN) there is a mutable (cadent) house that always deal with realization.
With two planets and a node there, we see that Ms Greene employs understanding to find an untapped market to which she acts like a guru because coming right after the preponderance of in Leo (assurance) she makes her students (audience) feel that she not only has an “instinctive response” (the 4th) to the problems but also can express the answer both creativity and personally.” (the 5th). Such an ability has led to her unparalleled financial success (she and Robert Hand own Astro.com and now Astrotheme.com).
Using again her idea of Pluto and Neptune for the yod points, as they a sextile away, her original yod is still at 8 Virgo but now in 3rd house. Here we see that Liz has a strong philosophical nature (she has Ph.D. in philosophy) with an abundance of ideals and concepts that do not always translate into practical terms. While she is a glib conversationalist, it’s hard to fully grasp her meanings, as talks on an abstract plane. This was apparent in the Outer Body book with her insistence Pluto is a female planet akin to the Furies, where elsewhere it is associated with Mars. Those who have read her other books can discern that same thread. Her discussion with her audience keeps her grounded, they can point out inconsistencies (and they do!) and jumps in logic that are perplexing. This is like to the conversation she has with her clients who probably do the same.
