Virgo - astrology 101

Virgo.png

Happy Virgo season. It either starts August 22 or 23. I usually say it starts August 23 and lasts until September 22. ⁠⁠Virgo is ruled by Mercury. Virgo is an earth sign. It is mutable and the polarity is considered negative/feminine/yin.

.⁠Virgo can be described as quiet, narrow-minded, realistic, modest, critical and practical. The strength of a Virgo is their reliability and their attention to detail. Weaknesses include being too analytical and perfectionism. Excellent careers for Virgos include nutritionist, scientist, librarian, and personal assistant. ⁠⁠

The great astrologer, Robert Hand, says "While Virgo does not insist on being boss, it needs to feel effective. Yet the world is not an entirely reliable place: things go wrong even with the best of plans. That bothers Virgo more than most signs. The concern for order may also cause Virgo to become extremely neat in personal habits, but if Virgo cannot achieve perfect order, it may give up completely".⁠⁠

Leo - astrology 101

"The lion is called the King of the Beasts, and astrologers think that this animal is a good symbol to represent the kind of personality which seems to belong to most Leos. If you watch a lion you will see that he is always dignified, proud-looking, and relaxed. He seems to know that he is king". - Liz Greene, Astrologer ⁠⁠.⁠

Leo season is from July 23 to August 22. Leo is fixed fire and ruled by the Sun. ⁠⁠

⁠Leos are known for being excellent leaders and ⁠charming. They like applause, the arts, and passion. Keywords for Leo include pride, self-assured, enthusiastic, boisterous and patronizing.

⁠⁠⁠⁠A skilled Leo is good-natured and creative. An unskilled Leo is snobbish and arrogant. ⁠⁠

⁠Good careers for Leos include teaching, politics, acting, and lawyer.⁠

Happy Cancer Season

Happy Cancer season! The Latin word for Cancer is crab hence Cancer the crab! Cancer is cardinal water and is ruled by the Moon. The planet and the sign are about security.

Cancers are thought to be sensitive, caring, and nurturing like the Moon. They can appear as tough as they tend to hide their sensitivity. One of the main fears of Cancers is being dependent on others. They can get defensive if they feel threatened.

Cancers love being at home. They love the familiar. They are not known for enjoying travel.

A skilled Cancer is nurturing, emotional, and intuitive. An unskilled Cancer comes across as moody, extremely cautious, and manipulative.

When it comes to relationships, Cancers tend to get along well with Scorpio, Pisces, Virgo, and Taurus. The least compatible signs are Aries, Capricorn, and Libra.

Where Cancer is in your house represents your home, your roots, and what we are like in private.

Taurus Overview

Taurus season lasts from April 20th to May 20.  Taurus is fixed earth and the second sign of the Zodiac. Venus is the ruler of this sign. Venus is about possessions, attraction, and creativity. Taureans love their things. They value beautiful items and admire creativity. According to astrologer Robert Hand, Taurus is the most earthy sign of all the earth signs. He doesn’t think Venus is the best ruler for Taurus. He thinks Earth should rule Taurus. I can see both as rulers of the sign.

Taureans are pragmatic, practical and like stability. Don’t mess with their routine or you might see their rare anger, or they may become stubborn and refuse to budge.  Otherwise, they are known for being mellow. They are reliable and extremely loyal.

Taureans are not the life of the party. They aren’t very social. Many of them are introverted or shy. Taurus likes to be alone and can be happy reading a book or doing any solo activity.  They don’t need public recognition for a job well done.

A skilled Taurus is trustworthy, caring and creative. An unskilled Taurus is stubborn, self-indulgent, and inflexible.

Many Taureans like gardening, cooking and other handicrafts. They love using their hands. They like owning beautiful things like clothing and paintings. They love food! They don’t like taking risks.

Taurus and fire signs don’t often get along well. Scorpio is the opposite of Taurus. If they get together, it will be intense. Taurus usually get along well with Pisces, Capricorn, Virgo, and other Taureans. All of this is a generalization. And remember everyone has every sign in their birth chart.

In tarot, The Hierophant is the card associated with Taurus. Like many Taureans, I don’t see that association. If you want to understand a Taurus, study The Empress. The Empress loves nature, is nurturing and likes abundance.

All About Aries

It's Aries season! This is the beginning of a series of blog posts for each sign.

Aries marks the beginning of spring. It is the beginning of the sun's cycle through the zodiac.

about aries.png

Aries is a cardinal fire sign ruled by Mars. This is a sign of freedom. Aries wants to do whatever they want when they want. They want to be in charge of themselves more than in charge of others. They don't need a lot of social approval, and they tend to work best alone.

Aries is not an emotional sign. They don't like it when others are emotional either. As a fire sign, Aries can be impatient and energetic.

Mars and Aries are very similar. Mars is a courageous fighter. Mars likes to start new ventures and take action.

A skilled Aries will take the initiative, be generous, is practical and an excellent leader. An unskilled Aries can be impulsive, selfish, and belligerent.

As far as relationships go, if you believe opposites attract Aries should hang with Libra. Otherwise, Aries gets along well with Leo, Sagittarius, and Gemini.

Astrological Signs and Careers

Here is an excerpt from my astrological signs and careers PDF. Coming out in mid-December to people on my mailing list.

Most people know their Sun Sign AKA horoscope sign because all the person needs to know is their birthdate. However, to gain more profound knowledge of yourself, I feel it is helpful to know your Moon and Ascendant (Rising Sign). To identify the latter two signs, you need to know not only where you were born, but also your time of birth.

For example, My Sun Sign is Taurus, but I find that I often relate more to my Ascendant which is Pisces. So I encourage you to read about your Sun Sign, Moon Sign and your Ascendant.
