how do i find out? can someone tell me?
UPDATE: with the websites referenced below and my birth certificate handy, i can now proclaim my findings. the ofesite.com page and astrology.com pages were the two i tried first, and they didn't really seem to apply. then i tried the astro.com page and much more info was given, and much more of it seemed accurate. i will copy/paste all my findings below and you can judge for yourself. (i bolded parts that i thought were particularly applicable, and responded in (bold) to things that seemed way out in left-field)
Sun in Sagittarius, Moon in Leo • Ascendant in Aries, Mars in the Sixth House • Moon in the Fifth House • Saturn in the Seventh House • Saturn Opposition Ascendant • Sun in the Ninth House • Venus in the Eleventh House
Sun in Sagittarius, Moon in Leo
Your astrological positions confer upon you a splendid combination. You have a gift for perceiving complex ideas as one concept, for reducing multiple problems to one workable unity. You exude power and energy and are warmed by the attention and admiration of others.
Either your passionate or spiritual side will be awakened, lending you the ability to foresee the future. (really? how?)
Your affections are boundless, and your heart can go out to many without diffusing your emotions. You are magnanimous and loyal. In whatever area you rest your interest, you will assume a position of leadership.
You have a love of luxury and pleasures, leaning at times to self-indulgence. The key to a more harmonious self lies in subduing your imagination and allowing more practical tendencies to flow through your personality.
Ascendant in Aries, Mars in the Sixth House
At the time of your birth the zodiacal sign of Aries was ascending in the horizon. Its ruler Mars is located in the sixth house.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiacal belt and its natives seem also desirous of being "first" in all activities with which they happen to be involved. The cardinality of the sign makes you extremely active and capable of displaying ambition, impulsiveness, courage, and boldness in order to satisfy your desire for prominence in the world.
The general course of your life will be filled with many 'ups' and 'downs' and changes conforming very much with the psychological nature of your temperament. Whether you triumph or not in life depends on your ability to develop your most positive inborn qualities and, simultaneously, exert some control over your less favorable characteristics, such as a lack of prudence, and a certain disregard for the feelings and opinions of others.
Aries gives a tendency for its natives to be inclined to politics (bah!) and public work. You should be successful (or at least attempt to be so) in any work or activity that necessitates pioneering ideas and/or a militant disposition (um, what?). You also appear to have an ardent attitude in any project that somehow or another involves new concepts or original work and in which you are given a position of leadership. One of your problems is that in your love for achievement in novel projects you tend to destroy old concepts and former contributions which would, perhaps, have been useful for your endeavors. Impulsive, critical, despising mean or dubious acts, you will create many excellent friendships but also important enemies (i don't really have much of either at the moment). Your life is rich in passion and ardent love. In sexual matters you are quick, aggressive, and to the point (do what?). You also are a lover of pleasures, which you feel with a bright, open, and sparkling character.
Mars, the ruler of your life events, is found located in the sixth house. This location of Mars, is not altogether harmonious with the sign which it rules. The sixth house denotes subordination and limitations. Unfortunately, the more you resist these impositions of destiny, the more tied and bound to them you will find yourself. If you can view the naturally imposed limitations with perspective, the better and faster solution will come flowing throughout life as if magically produced (?).
Moon in the Fifth House
The Moon was found in the fifth house at the time of your birth. This indicates that you will participate actively in business speculations with many changes occurring in this respect. You were born with a knack for dealing with people and with the ability to communicate with them, particularly in connection with business enterprises (business? ick!).
Your emotional nature is very much geared to your love of pleasure, and you possess a very curious aptitude which may bring you financial gains as well as pleasures in business.
In spite of the positive qualities you have, the fact of the matter is that in love you are very changeable, unstable, or too preoccupied with trivialities (this doesn't seem accurate at all).
Your love feelings are very well developed and lead to strong drives for sensations and passionate tendencies which unfortunately are not directed to one ob
It is possible that throughout life you may be connected with small and numerous business investments with a fairly good return.
Saturn in the Seventh House
Saturn was found in seventh house at the time of birth. In your dealings with others, you are going to present a very cautious personality and you will work slowly towards the achievement of security. The environment will be a very restricting factor in your life; the same limitations that hinder your relationships with others will emerge in a narrowness of reception to your ideas and emotions. This indicates that the key to more spiritual and material development lies in your response to the several tests destined for you which consist of patiently enduring difficulties through human relationships.
You should remember that Saturn does not lend a propensity to be demonstrative in an emotional sense. It does, in those individuals with whom you will start a lifelong relationship, give a sense of duty and stability of emotions. Yet you are going to experience some sorrow throughout your life in a relationship. This is mostly going to consist of the several limitations that this state is imposing upon your personal freedom.
The key to a better integration of your existence lies in the ability to view these obstacles and binds with philosophical resignation.
Saturn Opposition Ascendant
Saturn opposition the Ascendant shows that you are defensive in your associations.
You tend to be so preoccupied with your own affairs that you cannot be too concerned with anyone else's. But at the same time you accuse people of being indifferent to you. The truth is, you are so reserved about projecting yourself into their lives that you give the impression you think yourself better than they are. So they keep their distance and are not likely to warm up to you. Although you have a mind of your own, you are never sure you can exploit your ideas and get a favorable response, which you desperately need.
Because you are more competent than most of your competitors, you will never take on a task you can not handle. Until you try, of course, you will not know this. You secretly fear responsibility (i don't think so), but you are more than able to perform your duties and fulfill your obligations, both to yourself and to others.
Sun in the Ninth House
The Sun was found in the ninth house at the time of birth. This is an indication that your real self possesses an attraction to higher levels of thought. Additionally, this indicates that the most important realizations may come through the process of pure reasoning.
You will tend to grow through the workings of your higher mind where you may find, after much striving, the creative principle and the power of self-ex
You possess a rather austere mind which is fearless, self-confident and keenly analytical.
Regarding life events, you will be inclined to obtain success in subjects connected with law, religion, and possibly foreign lands.
Venus in the Eleventh House
Venus was found in the eleventh house at the time of your birth. Your aspirations in life are very aesthetically oriented.
You strive for peace and harmony and if it were left up to you the whole world would be more humane, kind, and considerate. In your more personal relationships, Venus gives you the capability of obtaining substantial gain and assistance through your friends, who will desire to assist you with the best of intentions.
Note: Venus is technically near the end of house 10 and is therefore interpreted in house 11.

Sun Sign.................... Sagittarius
Section 1: How You Approach Life and How You Appear To Others
You meet life head on and throw yourself into new experiences with zest and enthusiasm. You are direct, straightforward, assertive, and usually completely aboveboard in all your dealings. Candid and incapable of guile, insincerity or phoniness, you project a confident and sometimes arrogant appearance to others. You often lack tact and sensitivity, and can be completely oblivious to others' needs, and inadvertently selfish. You are self-reliant and don't depend upon social approval and reinforcement as much as other people do. You like to be original and do not mind going it alone. You may feel that you do not fit into groups very well, and that you do not naturally blend in and cooperate with others very easily. You like to be either a leader or a loner. (while several things in here can be true at times, it didn't take into account my natural tendency toward introversion)
Section 2: The Inner You: Your Real Motivation
You are a gambler (no) and an adventurer at heart, one who loves to take risks, to discover and explore new worlds, and to take the untried path rather than the safe, reliable one. You are an independent soul, freedom-loving, and often very restless. You need a lifestyle that provides opportunities for travel, movement, change, and meeting new people. A steady routine which offers much in the way of security but little in the way of space and freedom is odious to you.
MOON IN LEO
The Moon in Leo makes you strong, proud and courageous (sometimes, but more often hesitant and shy, especially in real life dealings). You enjoy responsibility, and often take on too much of it. You have a natural attraction authority, and enjoy appearing the public eye. You would rather lead than follow any day. Your inherent pride makes you very susceptible to love affairs (do WHAT?). The opposite sex takes a strong interest in you because of the frequency and sincerity of these affairs. Your actions at work attract the attention, and respect of your superiors. This can only mean good things for you as far as your career is concerned. As far as money is concerned you are very generous, a little too generous (much the same with your affections!). The Moon in Leo makes for a strong intellect and a strong love of the arts. Don't be surprised if your occupation involves the theatre, music, painting or literature. You also have a love for luxuries. You like to drink the finest wine life has to offer. You are lively in spirit, have a high intelligence and have good prioritizing skills.
