Mountaineer Edmund Hillary (the first person to climb Mt Everest, along with his Sherpa Tenzing Norgay) is an excellent example of positive use of heaps of squares in your chart.
He’s got cardinal squares – which is what the Zap Zone of Uranus square Pluto is. Cardinal squares may be a pain but they sure as hell get results.
So Sir Edmund has his Capricorn Rising square his Moon in Aries square his Sun in Cancer/Kataka. So how did he relax? By setting out on technically impossible expeditions into wilderness terrain. Capricorn Rising is, of course, the ultimate climber AND needs to impress via official feats of amazingness. He was also packing a powerful Mars-Pluto conjunction in Cancer/Kataka. You could argue that Mars opposite the sign in which it is exalted is weakened but with Pluto alongside, i think not.
Plus the dude had North Node in Saggo, I’d say he was doing his chart just brilliantly. He apparently absolutely hated talk about the past, even Everest. He thought it unhealthy.
Never let anyone tell you that square aspects in your chart are a bad thing; they get you motivated. Too many trines and you sloth out on your sofa for years at a time, passively absorbing whatever crap culture radiates your way from the television.
And re Sir Edmund, how craggily gorgeous are his Cap Rising features?
