Gemini

May 21 – June 21

 

Gemini is ruled by Mercury, and its symbol is the Twins.  Gemini is an Air sign, analytical and ever-changing.

Intelligent, communicative, and non-conformist are the qualities that best describe those born under the sign of Gemini.  The influence of Mercury on the intellect give Geminis a thirst for learning and knowledge, which in turn they wish to tell everyone about.  Their quick imagination and wit allows them to jump from one topic to another in conversation and they can keep an audience riveted with their charm, originality and mental agility.

Geminis are often moody and unpredictable; hence the dual quality of their personality.  They constantly crave variety and new stimulus, and are prone to depression if this urge is not satisfied.  But not for long, for their energy and quick thinking always propels them in a new direction.  A happy Gemini is a Gemini with four of five interests going at the same time.  Restless by nature, they often find themselves with more than one job, hobby, career, and lover.

The down side to Gemini’s personality is their constant contempt for the status quo and authority – breaking the rules is their motto, which can sometimes work against their best efforts.  Another weakness of Gemini is superficiality.  With so much going on, only the surface can be scratched in many endeavors, leaving a feeling of unfulfillment.   However, Gemini’s quick thinking and gift for improvisation can save the day by allowing them to creatively turn their negative tendencies into potentials for success.

Libra

September 23 – October 22

 

Libra is ruled by Venus, and its symbol is the Scale.  Libra is an Air sign, charming and balanced.

Libras are defined by a highly developed social sense that draws them towards people.  They have a special need for companionship and for contact with the public, whether it be art, law, performing arts, or even business partnerships.

Libras have a natural attraction to beautiful things, thanks in part to the influence of the planet Venus.  They possess elegant tastes and enjoy all the good things in life that money can buy.  Their admiration of the beautiful tends to make them just as hungry for the praise and attention of others.  Libras can become overly concerned with outward appearances and will judge others by their looks and apparent disposition on more than one occasion.

Libras strive for balance and harmony in life.  They tend to see every side of an argument before choosing sides, and on many occasions will try to smooth over disputes between others.  Since peace is paramount to Libras, they will go to any lengths to achieve it, even if it means betraying their own internal feelings.  It is because of this that Libras are often seen as indecisive since too often they aren’t sure of what their own feelings are.

Hard working and optimistic, Libras are known for being great partners in business and team sports.  They attract the respect those who interact with them for their sense of fair play and charm.  They make good counselors and have a keen sense of the human psyche.   Libras are warm-hearted, pleasant, and naturally romantic.  They may not save the world, but they will do everything in their power to make it a better place to live in.

aquarius

Aquarius

January 20 – February 18

Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus, and its symbol is the Water-bearer.  Aquarius is an Air sign, independent and unorthodox.

Aquarians are the born eccentrics of the zodiac.  Born under the influence of the planet of change, Uranus, Aquarians live in the future.  They are intellectually independent and tend to have little patience with those who either wish to make them conform, or simply don’t understand their radical ideas.  Aquarians frequently argue for the sake of intellectual exercise, though if they have an opinion, they will defend it staunchly to the point where they will simply ignore the opposing arguments.

This is not to say Aquarians are anti-social.  Quite the opposite.  Aquarians hold brotherhood and fraternity nearly as important as intellectual ideas, and constantly crave the stimulation of people.  They are humanitarians and their thoughts constantly delve into the welfare of mankind.  They are dreamers and idealists and often come up with schemes to save the world.  All of this dreaming takes its toll, though, and many an Aquarian has known the sting of disillusionment with the real world.

Aquarians tend to spend so much time in the clouds that often they are perceived as aloof and detached.   They would rather dream up grand solutions to the problems of mankind that to involve themselves in the boring details.  Their great weakness is their tendency to find faults in others, while taking for granted their own shortcomings.  Their calmness is also deceptive, concealing great bouts of mental anxiety.

When down to earth, however, Aquarians are amongst the kindest people in the zodiac.  They are easygoing, reasonable, and never boring.  So long as they are given the freedom to be themselves, they can be the most entertaining and loyal companions.

Signs, the Ancient History

The Significance of The Signs:

The planets represent the energies that drive your physical, emotional mental and intuitional systems. These energies manifest themselves differently depending on the positions of the planets in the signs of the zodiac. Different signs channel the energies into different behavior patterns, which are then recognized as personality traits. The traits associated with each sign are as follows:
Aries: Outgoing Taurus: Conservative
Gemini: Versatile Cancer: Emotional
Leo: Authoritative Virgo: Exacting
Libra: Helpful Scorpio: Determined
Sagittarius: Optimistic Capricorn: Cautious
Aquarius: Independent Pisces: Impressionable

When the ancients noticed the planets moving along the ecliptic path, they also noticed the background of fixed stars behind that path. It would be as though you noticed a background of billboards around a racetrack. You could tell the positions of the horses around the track just by identifying the billboards behind each horse. The ancients used the background of fixed stars the same way. They divided their racetrack (the ecliptic) into 12 equal sectors. Each sector was named after the fixed-star group seen in that sector (for example, Aries „the ram“). The ancients referred to these sectors as the „little zoo“, which in Greek is „zodiac“.

Every sign falls into a group of signs, either fire, earth, water, and air; depending on their orientation in the zodiac. These ancient astrologers had associated each Element with their temperaments, and each group of elements are at 120 degree angles to each other.

Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius.
Enthusiastic, courageous, passionate and impulsive.

Earth Signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn.
Practical, materialistic, conservative, and inhibited.

Air Signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius.
Intellectual, adaptive, impractical, and superficial.

Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces.
Emotional, sensitive, placid, and susceptible.

These four groups of signs: fire, earth, air, and water, combine to form two major groups that represent two fundamental approaches to life; active and passive. The fire and air signs make up the active or masculine signs, while the earth and water signs make up the passive or feminine signs. It is unfortunate that the ancient astrologers called the active signs masculine and the passive signs feminine.

Another group of traits occurs among signs that are 90 degrees apart from each other. There are four signs in each group of Qualities, which are cardinal, fixed, or mutable. They suggest the basic kinds of activity a person will be engaged in–getting things started, keeping them going, or steering them in different directions.

Cardinal Signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn.
Initiating, enterprising, ambitious, domineering.

Fixed Signs: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius.
Determined, conventional, organizing, dogmatic.

Mutable Signs: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius.
Adaptable, imaginative, tutorial, critical.
