Planet Signs and Meanings
 
Please fill in the appropriately ruled house, key words and phrases from each of the signs. I attribute colors to the signs depending on their elements. Fire signs (red), Air signs (blue), Water signs (green) and Earth signs (brown)...You can attribute any color you want when filling in the words and phrases, just be consistent. Again you are training your brain to visualize circular formations, colors, and symbols (whenever you can, use the symbol rather than the word).

Please do not get overwhelmed with the amount of dialogue or reading you have to do. The reason you are in this class is to call up your instincts and intuition regarding your own imagery, so you cannot go wrong in trusting yourself and combining you imagery and language with other learning that you are adept at..such as numerology, tarot, healing metaphysics, etc. INTEGRATE, INTEGRATE, ASSIMILATE, ASSIMILATE...

Aries -- ruled by the Ram, Aries is a cardinal fire sign which rules the first house...ruler of the planet Mars. It is said that whichever house in your chart that Aries rules is where you initiate activity. Aries stands for the following: initiating activity, direct action, impulses, intensity of behavior, projections on to partner, warrior activity, new ideas and new projects, child like ego, forehead, immaturity of action, competitive and often combative.

My views of Aries are of course tainted by the fact that I am a double Leo which is another fire sign. If you watch some of the actions of an Aries, such as that of a friend or neighbor (Aries), you will see them in action. Most of the above behaviors positive or negative occur when the person is rested or under stress. That will happen in any of the signs.

You must always remember that all signs have their opposite which in this case is Libra. I will discuss the opposites in sequence because I believe strongly that we have the negative qualities of our opposite signs. I want you to think in terms of opposites so that you may learn the nature of balance. So if you are an Aries, you will have many of the same characteristics of a Libra and as you get older you will absorb a balance from the opposite sign.

Libra - is a cardinal air sign represented by the scales of justice (balance in all things) ruled by the planet Venus. Libra rules the seventh house, partnership (committed business partners and marriage), can be a spiritual soul mate. Some key words for Libra are: balance, equality in relationship, boundary setting, learning about the "other", debate, partnership needs feedback from others regarding self, beauty, clarity of purpose and vision, clairaudience, decisive, excellent triangulates often beginning with the mediator in the family between parents and siblings, ruling the kidneys (needs to drink plenty of water to flush the adrenal glands). Being venusian, these folks often fight with weight because of their love of ease in food and relationships, most of them having beautiful skin and a fleshy look. I have seen Libran's get headaches to control their anger, therefore jumping to control their Aries impulses.

The behaviors that we want to encourage in the Aries/Libra axis for balance are the following: think before speaking, learn to set boundaries with others, realize position in the family is not all one's responsibility, counseling from objective point of view, judge everyone equally based on gathering of information, learn to express anger appropriately and breathe through some of the impulses, lean to value being alone with self and take care to get plenty of rest and drink plenty of pure water.

Taurus - Taurus, the Bull earth sign, co-ruler of the planet, Venus, ruler of the 2nd house (by the way, I see all of these signs taking on the behaviors of the symbols...they don't look like the symbols, but behave as such).
Taurus is fixed, stable, opinionated and sometimes very stubborn, has trouble keeping an open mind, loves good foods and touch, sensuous, value ridden, monetarily conscientious, usually beautiful voice, projects self well, rules the throat, loyal to partnerships even though can be quite possessive since one of their key words is "ownership", some will be prone to temper tantrums when they don't get their way, (this can also look like sullen and quiet, red-faced reaction) Many Tauruses have a broad rib cage around the heart area, similar to an opera singer.

Taurus balances with their polarity of Scorpio and will often carry some of the more negative aspects of Scorpio when under stress. the reverse is true regarding Scorpio. You will see this over and over again in all signs. Keep that in mind because most of the answers to your questions will need to integrate that balance.

Scorpio -- Ruler of the planet, Pluto, a fixed water sign, the symbols are for the lower nature (snake/scorpion) higher nature is phoenix...words associated with Scorpio (ruling the 8th house) are intensity, sexuality (not the act of sex), transformation, regeneration, understanding of the transformative area of the unconscious, understanding of past life connections of transformative nature, highly monogamous, rules the genitalia, rules surgery and the knife, stands for insurance, estate planning, inheritance, government (IRS)

Taurus/Scorpio axis people make wonderful mates in the United States as they are mostly monogamous, stable and financially secure, however the negative side of this could be possessive, vindictive and stubborn. If you know any of these types you can easily see the opposition and also similarities as they interact.

Gemini - Co-ruler of the planet Mercury with V virgo..(I give rulership of Virgo to Chiron however) mutable air sign rules the third house of communication and the symbol stands for the twins (you could actually name any mythological twins and they would fit)...association of words to describe Gemini...talkative, communication, telephone lines, siblings, student (sometimes will not make the transition to teacher), gossipy, lithe, cute, small, energetic, sometimes hyperactive, neighborly and friendly, the hands, shoulders and arms often hold the tensions of the nervous Gemini's, sometimes immature and actually more child like and silly, fun to be with, and they love telephone chatter.

Sagittarius - ruler of the planet Jupiter, mutable fire sign rules the 9th house and is the symbol of the centaur...words to associate with Sag are philosophical, talkative more from a professorial standpoint, good dancers, energetic, intelligent, seeks higher learning, metaphysically or orthodox curiosity, great lecturers and preachers, find it hard to partner because partner has to be as free spirited. I find the Sag rules the upper leg and also parts of the liver. Dancing is good for them so that they can exercise that muscle.

Cancer - a cardinal water sign which rules the 4th house and is the symbol of the crab. Words to associate with this sign are: family, mother, emotionalism, loyalty, sensitivity, holding, containment, real estate, roots, primary caretaker, female side of self, nurturing, jealous, possessive, too temperamental, moody. Cancer rules all of the containers in the body such as the stomach, breasts, etc.

Capricorn - a cardinal earth sign which rules the 10th house and is the symbol of the mountain goat, ruler of the planet Saturn. Capricorn key words stand for: paternity, responsibility, maleness, wise old man, old crone, discipline, perseverance, pastlife responsibilities, boundary of the Soul, longevity, bones and knees, calcium intake.

I always look at the Cancer/Capricorn axis to see how a person takes care of themselves and meets their responsibilities. it also shows the degree to which the person takes on universal role within the family of responsibility, nurturing, and/or paternity.

Leo a fixed fire sign ruling the Sun and is the symbol of the lion. Key words for this sign are: leadership, personality, giving energy, stoic survival, dramatic, charismatic, independence within a partnership, holds on to focus, loves children, creative, able to handle power, negatives, lacks self-confidence (often has had a male figure in early childhood who has tried to suppress the will), stands for his/ her will, persevering will power, able to take risks, often gambles at all levels. Rules the spine and heart and some of the circulatory system surrounding those areas. Needs the sun to shine....

Aquarius ruler of Uranus, this is a fixed air sign only it has a symbol of the waterbearer. Keywords: brilliance, innovative, electric, vibratory, friendship, goals, humanitarian, inventive, objectivity, able to grasp big concepts, computer literate at times, some negatives: rebellion, eccentric, vibration is so high that blows out circuitry at times and the person can get very stressed due to overload, has trouble in sexually intimate relationship, but actually a very good partner and a friend in a marriage. (again none of these are hard and cold facts...image a line and there is a focal point of balance on the continuum). rules the ankles and the circulatory system...These folks need to take multi-vitamins. They often lose sleep because of so much energy.

Virgo...co-ruler of Mercury and I believe ruler of Chiron (wounded healer), a mutable sign ruling the sixth house, Dane Rudhyar gives much importance to Virgo as the sign of assimilation, before you move into the upper part of the chart (manifesting area), you have to assimilate houses 1-6. Key words are: assimilation, integration, healing, acute-medical problems, general health, analyzation, service, prioritizing, routine, dietary concerns, digestion of both food and information, worrywart, nervous, highly self-critical or critical of others (needs to turn those qualities into discernment), rules the intestinal tract and dietary system (of all the signs, this one does best on a vegetarian diet)

Pisces - ruler of Neptune, water element, and rules the 12th house. Key words are: visionary, sensitivity, musically aware, creative, dreamer, healer, spiritualist, psychic, understanding, compassion, sympathy, Christ Consciousness, sacrifices, lacks boundaries at times, needs space to revive oneself able to be alone, clairvoyant, and often times channels information without even knowing it, helps in drug or alcohol counseling after own addictions are handled. Rules the feet and immune system, responds very well to reflexology and myopractics.

Karmic Elements and Modes.....

The twelve Signs of the Zodiac have been called archetypal patterns, universal principles, and energy fields. They are all those and much more even beyond our concept, but at present we can only concern ourselves with what we can understand of life in ourselves and those around us.

Each Sign springs from, or embodies, a combination of one of the four Elements---Fire, Earth, Air, and Water---plus one of the three Modes of vibration or operation---Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable.

The four Elements of Astrology are the basic building blocks of our universe. All four are in each of us, though we are more attuned to one or two of these Elements than we are to the others. They are archetypal because they are the embodiment, at a level incomprehensible to our finite minds, of an ultimate perfection: Ideas of the ONE BEING. They ceaselessly mold all life, drawing each entity whether mineral, plant, animal, or human onward toward perfection of their particular kind. The ultimate archetype of Aries or Virgo may be beyond our present imagination, but we can see certain characteristics peculiar to Aries or Virgo all through the evolutionary chain of life.

To understand the signs of the zodiac, we must first understand the elements and the mode, or vibration, though which each Sign operates.....

The CARDINAL MODE of vibration or operation Aries, Libra, Cancer, and Capricorn---is cetrifugla, that is outward radiating energy. They are the first of the triplicities as the name Cardinal, suggest. Activity and leadership the Cardinal notes.

The FIXED MODE of operation or vibration---through Taurus, Scorpio, Leo and Aquarius---is CENTRIPETAL: energy radiating inward toward a center. Their qualities of stability, perseverance, and concentration explain why these Signs are the key symbols of the MAJOR INITIATIONS OF THE SOUL because that concentration and perseverance ultimately give those qualities strongly under Fixed Signs the depth and power for the transformation of initiation. Fixitiy and organization are the notes of FIXED MODE.

The MUTABLE MODE of vibration or operation--through Virgo, Pisces, Gemini, and Sagittarius--is SPIRALIC, revolving toward the past (through Pisces and Virgo) and toward the future (through Gemini and Sagittarius). They strive for harmony through adaptability and reaction, the notes of the Mutable Mode.

The ELEMENT OF FIRE expresses in three ways, in energy thrust, inspiration, and impulse. It is said that the Fire Signs---Aries, Leo and Sagittarius----are born to learn to love, and I would add, to learn to handle power rightly.

The ELEMENT OF EARTH expresses in concentration of force and practicality. It is said that the Earth Signs---Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn--are born to learn the lesson of service...and GROUNDING THE SPIRIT....

The ELEMENT OF AIR expresses in unification, intellect and universality...the group process, the humanitarianism...The air signs---Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius---are born to learn the lesson of brotherhood.

The ELEMENT OF WATER expresses in strong emotions, instincts, sympathies and feelings. The Water Signs---Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces---are born to learn peace..and usually come from the feeling waters..of Shamanism...and mystical healing...

FIRE----

Aries---combines the Fire Element with the Cardinal Mode...making those born with prominent Aries...keen, energetic, extraordinarily active. A strong will and talent for leadership marks Aries at any stage of evolution but the evolved, spiritual Aries learns to temper his will to the likeness of a fine sword, used only on behalf of others: for love of God and Man---"Thy Will, not mine, be done!" When they learn to forget themselves for love of those in their care, those who look to them for leadership, the archetypal Aries will indeed shine forth.

Leo---combines the Fire element with the Fixed Mode...Leos like to do things in a royal way as befits the King of the Beast--even unevolved Leos are generous, kind, and given to dramatic gestures...Manly Hall suggests that Leo types frequently suffer from some form of obsession due to the psychism of Cancer in the previous life. The obsession may range from a divinity complex to an infallibility complex. Leo people sometimes feel that they are not as other mortals., perculiarly endowed with semidivine attributes and they love to reform other people or institutions. Leo's yearning for love and appreciation teaches him that in order to receive love from others one must first give love---and not with the attitude of "I'll love you as long as you love me!" The warmth of the FIRE is always present and it draws others like a magnet; they seem to gather instinctively around a Leo to warm their coldness and fill their emptiness. Leo performs on an involved level as an initiatory master teacher...

Sagittarius...combines the FIRE element with the MUTABLE ode. This "mutability" makes him more adaptable and self-sufficient than either Aries or Leo. The symbol for Sagittarius, the Archer, with his bow and arrow ever ready to shoot afar, gives rise to the observation that Sagittarius often seem more interested in SHOOTING their arrows than in the DESTINATION of the arrow...This often comes through their TACTLESS SPEECH...Sagittarians whether evolved or unevolved, are attracted to religion and philosophy and they often choose the priesthood or some kind of ministry as a vocation...where they can learn the lesson of love..and learn to seek the well being of others...

All firesigns..radiate enthusiasm, optimism, urge to activity, and self-confidence....Dame Fortune suggests in LIGHT ON THE PATH..."Regard most earnestly your own heart. For through your own heart comes the one light which can illuminate life and make it clear to your eyes. Study the hearts of men, that you may know what is that world in which you live and of which you will to be a part. Regard the constantly changing and moving life which surrounds you, for it is formed by the hears of men; and as you learn to understand their constitution and meaning, you will by degrees be able to read the larger word of life."

EARTH

Taurus....The greatest fault of Taurus is possessiveness and stubbornness but in the evolved Taurean the stubborness becomes the ability to persist against the great odds over a long period for some altruistic cause. For all Earth Signs, those instructions given to the aspiring disciple in LIGHT ON THE PATH apply with particular force:"Desire possessions above all. But those possession must belong to the pure soul only, and be possessed therefore by all pure souls equally, and thus be the especial property of the whole only when united. Hunger for such possession as can be held by the pure soul, that you may accumulate wealth for that united spirit which is your only true SELF."

Under Taurus the young soul seeks possessions for his little self, but as he evolves those possession are considered in the light of stewardship and are held--and freely given in the service of others...

Virgo combines the Earth Element with the Mutable Mode and therefore is the most adaptable and changeable of the Earth signs. This Sign naturally rules Service, and in service the Virgo finds his greatest satisfaction and eventually his true Self. Essentially a worker, the Virgo is neat, precise, and careful of detail...There always seems to be an element f insecurity in Earth Sign people which they seek to overcome consciously or unconsciously by acquiring something they hold valuable. It is very hard for them to realize that material things, whether, money, position, or power, do not give real security. A Virgo incarnation is apt to be one of limitation and financial problems. He tends to restrict his service to those whom, in his critical opinion, he considers 'worthy' and he measures his service with a careful eye on an equal return... When the evolved Virgo learns the lesson of giving service to all without measuring the worth of the recipient or the return to himself he becomes the selfless servant of all.

Capricorn combines the Earth Element with the Cardinal Mode of operation, which makes him less fixed than Taurus and not as changeable as Virgo. Being of the Cadinal Mode the Capricorn welcomes responsibility and is ambitious to rise. Many Capricorns are known surpass all the Signs in making "heavy weather" out of everything. It is no good pointing out their many blessings for they cannot seem to keep from feeling miserable, apprehensive, and worried. Their lesson is to learn that only through service to others in some form will their intrinsic worth and security be established. Through sharing they will discover warmth and joy.

In human life it seems a truth and a karmic law that the things we value the most, and the things we fear the most, hold for us the greatest lessons which, when fully understood and fulfilled, become the essential steps in spiritual growth.

The air signs are concerned with more of the humanitarian efforts on the planet at this time. Placing such high value on the mind, they often feel superior than their fellow men who may not be so articulate or intellectual, though they may well be very intelligent. Brotherhood seems to be the lesson of the Air Sign....from LIGHT ON THE PATH...Kill out all sense of separateness. Do not fancy you can stand aside from the bad man or the foolish man. They are yourself, though in a less degree than your friend or your Master. But if you allow the idea of separateness from any evil thing or person to grow up within you, by so doing you create Karma which will bind you to that thing or person until your soul recognizes that it cannot be isolated...

Gemini combines the Air Element with the Mutable Mode, liking to be constantly on the move physically and mentally----contracting, associating, co-ordinating. To his logical mind ideas and their relationships to each other are of fundamental importance. His task lies in comprehending the simple basis underlying the enormous varieties and complexities with which he tends to pre-occupy himself. The evolved Gemini learns in time to value others even if their approach is not as quick or as intellectual as his, for then he can appreciate all men and women as facets of the same diamond Self.
 
Libra combines the Air element with the Cardinal Mode. Libra is the natural Sign of partnership, the public, and relationships with others in general. They dislike disagreeableness and confrontations of any kind and prefer to live for of any contact with the seamier facts of life. LIGHT ON THE PATH says..Remember that the sin and shame of the world are your sin and shame; for you are a part of it; your karma is inextricably interwoven with the great Karma. And before you can attain knowledge you must have passed through all places, foul and clean alike. Therefore, remember that the soiled garment you shrink from touching may have been yours yesterday, may be yours tomorrow. And if you turn with horror from it, when it is flung upon your shoulders, it will cling the more closely to you.

Aquarius combines the Air element with the Fixed Mode. This member of the Air triplicity certainly should be brotherhood personified, for is not Aquarius the Sign of Man---"Mr. Brotherhood" himself? The sign Aquarius is ruled by Uranus the Awakener and Rebel.. An Aquarian cannot bear to have his own freedom threatened...even going so far to metaphorically lead a revolution so that all men may be equal and free. When Universal Brotherhood is achieved there still must be rules and limitations so that the free actions of one individual or group does not infringe upon that of another, and that is what the Aquarian will resent. BROTHERHOOD can only become a reality to the Aquarian when he desires his brother's freedom more than his own; when his own freedom is surrendered for the good of all. Oddly enough, although Aquarius is the Sign par excellence of humanity. Aquarians can be the most detached and "inhuman" of humans...they do this with their avoidance of intimacy and permanent commitments. Aquarians have many friends, but few are very close, mainly because it is hard for others to penetrate the wall of universality and individuality that the Aquarian carries in his aura...

Water Element... describes the Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces....with strong emotions, instincts, sympathies, and feelings. The Water Sign person desires peace around him, that others treat him with the love and harmony he so desperately desires. All that is needed for peace and harmony, he feels, is that others behave themselves---it is they who ruffle his emotional waters. But in time he comes to realize that the peace he wants must first be established within his own heart before it can be reflected in others about him. Peace is the lesson for the Water Signs.


Cancer combines the Water Element with the Cardinal Mode. Like its symbol, the Crab, Cancer loves his home, his family, his shell. He is protective, supportive, devoted to his own family. Control of the emotions and imagination is needed with Cancer. They should practice using their imaginations creatively instead of negatively. The evolved Cancereian eventually expands maternal urges beyond his immediate family giving that tender, compassionate love to every living creature.

Scorpio combines the Water element and the Fixed Mode. The Sign of of Scorpio, the lower form(scorpion) the higher form (Eagle) is associated with 8th house which rules death, regeneration, rebirth, sexuality and others sexuality and money...Scorpio's greatest problems are controlling the intensity of emotion and desire, entangling ideas of justice with attachments which lead to control and misuse of power. Once he turns from the real or fancied injustices to the reformation of his own character his progress is swift, he becomes the soaring eagle. In the words of LIGHT ON THE PATH: But to learn is impossible until the first great battle (i.e.control of the emotions and desires) has been won. The mind may recognize truth but the spirit cannot receive it. Once having passed through the storm and attained the peace, it is always possible to learn, even though the disciple waver, hesitate, and turn aside. This is a battle that needs to be fought over and over again.

Pisces combines the Water Element with Mutable mode...Of all the twelve Signs the native of Pisces seem to have the most difficult lives. They are subject to all the instability, strong sympathies and feelings, sensitivity to hurt and tendency to brood which are intrinsic qualities of the Water Element. The first few or last few of degrees in any sign often indicates weakness or confusion affecting the planet or Ascendant so placed because they are not established firmly in the Sign they are beginning or leaving. Thus it seems to be with Pisces as the last of the twelve Signs but it is a necessary process of karmic law, necessary for the health and progress of the whole and not to be considered by any means an inferior part of the cycle. The EVOLVED PISCES.. is capable of devoted selfless service for others, of a deep universal vision and mystic at-one-ment with all living creatures which they show at all stages of evolution in their tenderness for animals and plants. The Piscean is the most sensitive of all Water Signs, depending on others for support. The danger lies in the more forcefully expressed opinions and defined personalities of others confusing and distorting their own their own unique selves. The water of Pisces is the water of the sea--boundless infinitely deep with many hidden currents. It is the Sign of the Savior, the last crucifixion before transformation into the superhuman kingdom.

The evolved Piscean is capable of devoted selfless service for others, of a deep universal vision and mystic at-one-ment with all living creatures which they show at all stages of evolution in their tenderness for animals and plants. A Piscean must learn to move from self-pity, indecision, and feelings of inadequacy (which sometimes lead to the escapism of alcoholism or drugs or daydreaming) to practical uses of imagination and idealism in the arts, religion, selfless service, and healing.

Lesson IV...IMPORTANCE OF POLARITIES.

Please fill out the mandalas I sent you and remember to think in polarities or 180 degrees apart...remember to include in your synthesis, analysis, or delineation the polarity exchange between, houses, planets, and signs...

Since I channel most of my material, it will not be as exact as your readings. I appreciate your abilities to do the same kind of channeling when giving me feedback. Some call it channeling and some call it intuition, whichever, you have all the qualities of performing these functions and that was why you were picked as a student in this class.

We will take the signs and talk about them and the polarity...for instance if you are doing a chart with much Aries you would read Aries and the polarities to Libra. If you are doing a chart with Libra, you look at Libra and its polarities of Aries. I want you to look in your chart and see which planets you have in the following signs and look at how the sign fits with the planet and then see how the polarity works in your life. For instance if I have Moon in Libra, how will my Moon operate in its polarity of Aries, considering it is the Moon. You can do this with all planets, just remember to combine the meaning of the sign with the planet.

To begin:

Aries/Libra- Aries is dynamic assertive energy in whatever house it is located and talks about the energy of the planet which sign it is in and also about mars in your chart. It reflects how you use your anger or your impulses to achieve or to sabotage your efforts. This sign is competitive and projects images onto others in order to find itself, both positive and negative. Much impulsive action comes from this sign, making it naive and childlike in many ways. There is a certain innocence about the activity of an Aries that has a nobility of soul to it, a spiritual warrior of sorts. They dare to go where no one seems to tread, however, it is mostly due to their adventuresome spirit. They move head first, for example, if someone has an Aries ascendant they will usually have a forward, assertive, moving body, and oftentimes a scar on the forehead. (this is important in rectification)..The polarity of Libra (most polarities are blind sides of the person, or maybe even the "shadow" of the person) is a continuous search for the ideal partner, yet when they find a good partner, they usually drive them away with their fluctuating termperment. Aries is independent looking for ideal equality in a relationship, yet unable to give up their independence. The Aries loves the looks of "the other" and has a venusian/Libran look at their loves and mates, however, that also becomes more superficial and runs off the partner. This sign also speaks before it thinks and is very hurtful at times without meaning to be so. Most female Aries suffer from headaches because of their role in our society and their repression of their own impulses and anger.

Libra/Aries - Libra is the balancing act, equalizing all things so that peace, harmony and beauty exists. Much of Libra's existence is looking for the partner, and they make very good partners because of their sense of diplomacy and fairness, not to mention creating equality within the relationship. Libra is very mental and is always looking for mental stimulation from the partner(s) which makes them very stimulating conversationalist anddebators. The polarity of Aries causes them to have blind spots when it comes to their projections. When a Libran starts giving glowing or negative feedback to a person with whom they are in relationship (significant partner, business, teacher) they tend to disown those very qualities in themselves, or at the very least, discount them. Both signs project out so that they can, hopefully, later assimilate that which is in them.

Taurus/Scorpio -- Taurus is a very determined and grounded sign which is almost immovable when it comes to change. They are so stable that they will not give up anything that looks like stability (even if it is not getting them anywhere), in order to make necessary changes. Taurus is very sense oriented and responds well to anything that engages their senses, food, sex, fine materials, colors, sound, etc. They have a wonderful touch about them and respond well to being touched. They often make wonderful sexual partners due to their sense of touch and feel. The monetary aspect of Taurus cannot be ignored, they value their lives according to how much money and material goods they have or don't have. Much of their financial stability, unless negative aspected, is due to their focus on their appraisal of how much they receive for the amount of energy that they put out. They are monogamous much the same as a Scorpio, but have a very negative possessive element about them and when the negative polarity is in effect you will see them using sex to get money (staying with an unhealthy marriage so as not to lose money by divorcing), being possessive and jealous about mates'indescretions, even though they are very unhappy in the relationship (as if they had nothing to do with pushing mate out the door). They can manipulate similarly as Scorpio does very well, but because this is a polarity, clumsy manipulation can be seen outright. Physically, Taurus gets a sore throat or loses voice when being sexually manipulative or angry regarding some of their own sexuality issues. The throat and sexual chakras are linked here.

Scorpio/Taurs - This is a very loyal and monogamous sign, but also very unwilling to let go as its Taurus polarity. Scorpio thrives in the insurance, estate, psychic business and any business that uses other people's resources. If I want my money to grow, I will give it to a Scorpio to invest, because they have a personal interest in making money for themselves off of myh money. Scorpios are said to be very sexual and I agree except I see them do the same with sex as they do with money. Many people have experienced Scorpios witholding of sex in order to gain power and using sex to gain power..It just depends on which intense mood they are in. The Scorpio is an intense, transformative type of individal, often varying degrees of insight from a psychic and intuitive level. They can usually find the truth after everyone else has given up, because of their plutonian investigative skills. The genitals are Scorpio ruled and they can have sore throats, connected to above information or problems with the sexual organs.

Gemini/Sagittarius -- Gemini is the perennial student of the zodiac and curiosly investigating all things at least on the surface. Great communicators, students, and sometimes good teachers, these two signs are also the yin/yang of communication, exerting and expressing outwardly and listening and internationalizing communication. The telephone is truly not an extension of Gemini's ear, but it almost seems that way at times, as the telephone is a major appendage to these delightful talkers. They unlike their Sagittarian polarity, know when to end a conversation. The Sag will oftentimes keep talking and you may be on the other end of "the never ending story" . Geminis are usually very intuitive and have flashes of brilliance, but when they are at their wits end, they need to rest, being a very nervous sign. I have noticed that Gemini's under stress have very tight shoulders and often have tremors, even if they are ever so slight.

Sagittarius/Gemini - Sag is a high minded kind of spirit, always grasping for the highest in ideals, stimulating conversationlist and never satisfied with just one answr. This sign is also quite intuitive but not in a personal sense of the word. Sag loves to be around many people so he can share his ideals and some views within a social context. He/She is a great dancer and sportsperson for the most part. However, when not in his/her body (which happens frequently when one lives in ones head), he/she will smoke too much or drink too much to stop the energy. These people can really talk, carry on a conversation, sometimes even if no one is listening. Hence, they are good professors or lecturers. When I work with Sag, I tell them to make very concise statements and keep their dialogue to a minimum...which automatically throws them into a state of void. So they do an "a void dance" which then gets them to their emotions. Being a fire sign, I love these people, and i often wonder why after all is said and done, because I get so frustrated with them.

Cancer/Capricorn -- Cancer is a nurturing, self contained, quietly emotional, caretaking kind of sign. The sign of Cancer in esoteric literature rules "mass consciousness" and therefore the instinctual side of nature, makes a home and carries a warm light within it's soul to attract others in that direction. If I ever want to depend on someone to be there, emotionally for me, it is always a Cancer type person. The more mature Cancer expands the nurturing to humanity and truly is compassionate with every living creature. Oftentimes to their own detriment, not taking care of their own emotions firs. This will create emotional insecurity which then causes an obsession with home and family, in order to find that security. They need to control their emotions and trust their instinctive feelings which are two different thins. The negative part of Capricorn is a feigned coldness when hurt and a grudge carrying vendetta that is more harmful to self than others. They want to control you through your being dependent on them so they often create dependencies in their interactions. When angry their stomach lining literally turns red and they are very susceptible to gastric problems. The rule for them is never to eat out of emotional needs. If you know a Cancer, then you know what I mean.

Capricorn/Cancer -- a paternal sign, highly responsible ruling the father as a counterpart to Cancer, ruling the mother. This sign grows more likeable as they get older and stop the authoritative interaction which is such a "put off" to some people. They grow up perceiving that they have to be responsible for everything and if it is not true, they make it so. Oftentimes they are born into a family that seems to rely on them for strength. Responsibility and paternity, finding identity in career, are all qualities of Capricorns. Capricorns are usually wise beyond their years, but also kind of stingy with their wisdom. They usually have an affinity for the ancient wisdoms and I see them as the Devil Card in the Tarot, which is an earthy wisdom demanding coming down to reality. They will often humble themselves and get too rigid, making thier bones brittle or their knees hurt. Arthritis and joint pain can really be a problem, as can bone loss in the gums and teeth area. Capricorns usually have great health, but the transits of late in Uranus and Neptune have given this sign some immunological problems. Getting plenty of rest, vitamins and good nutrition can mostly offset this tendency.

Leo/Aquarius -- definitely my favorite sign..Leo is a very childlike and somewhat innocent sign to be "king of the jungle". If you want to know some male Leo qualities go to the zoo and watch the male eye all his brood, not a move he makes, and takes frequent cat naps. The female lion is ever vigilant about her cubs and always at the service to the male, until he demands too much and then she just swats at him and he cowers. That pretty much describes my marriage to my Leo mate. Leo is devoted first to their progeny, then to their family constellation, and then to their mate, in that order. They have a grandiosity and charisma that comes with the Leo territory, but oftentimes lacks the confidence that would substantiate the power out in the world. These people have big hearts, and sometimes little sense of boundaries, because they are world servers, if they have made the jump from family to humanity. This causes great stress in their backs and circulatory systems. I have seen manymale Leo alcoholics and many female overweight-a-holics due to this stress. (not being able to handle their internal power). Leo's are extremely strong willed and can put out great positive energy, however they can get into their negative rebellion and stoic silence of thier polarity Aquarius.

Aquarius/Leo -- I love to be around Aquarians more than I love them, as they lighten me up and perform all of the rebellion that I feel deep in my soul. This unique and alive sign is always looking for the unusual or how they "don't have to fit in". This person can start a war with little or no effort with a few rebellious off the wall remarks and no one is the wiser. They have the gift of brilliant insight and global intuition which comes in bits and spurts and most of the time they cannot depend on this. They are devoted to humanity and humanitarian concerns, understanding the ultimate vibrational level of their world. They are so elecric that their vibrations oftentimes short out the electrical systems around them, like computers, microwaves, televisions, etc. They can be great healers just by their presence as they emit light from their bodies, especially when they are rested. These people are always moving, at least emotionally, and should keep thier bodies light by eating only live foods. Overweight can cause many circulation problems in the ankles and toxify the blood stream. They need to breathe deeply and as I said before, eat live foods. They often will be attention seekers on the negative side of Leo and will get attention any way that they can.

Virgo/Pisces - This hardworking, service-oriented sign is one that analyzes and synthesizes everything around them. If you want work done for you and done correctly, hire a Virgo. They may question what they are asked to do, but the "work ethic" in this sign is so great that they will work for the sake of working. They prioritize, make lists, and create a tremendous organizational structure in whichever area they are performing.
Virgo has a great analytical mind and can out think and talk and issue down to the bare bones. Virgo needs to learn to have faith of which their opposite sign has too much. They get so hard at work and worrying that they lose sight of their ultimate worth and become very self-critical. Working with a Virgo is building their self-esteem in a way that has meaning to them. The intestines and digestive system in this sign either works or doesn't depending on whether they have had a good day or a bad day. The sign can definitely handle a vegetarian diet if they do not have a case of colitis.

Pisces/Virgo - and here we are at the end of the age of Pisces, the ultimate compassionate, sensitive and creative soul. Pisces oftentimes loses themselves in an illusory, Neptunian world. However, they always make great healers because of their ability to absorb and get rid of negative emotions. They are not able to analyze and synthesize the reasons for their conflicts. They "just know". Many Pisces are very psychic without knowing and those that do know, usually do not know how to protect themselves form the onslaught of negativity from the people around them. I trust the psychic ability of a Pisces because they can get into your ehteric field and lose themselves, whereas other signs will get involved with their own issues and mix them up. The Pisces heals through reflexology and the feet and also eneds water therapy to get rid of negativity. Their alone space is of great importance and they need it desperately.

These are brief statements about the signs, but always think in polarities and balance when you are doing charts, because if you are a Leo, you have many Aquarian qualities that balance you and so on and so on. People will come to you because they want to know how they can create what they want in life and you must give them both sides of the coin to get where they are going. Believe me they will keep coming back. That is the test of a truly good astrologers, your clients keep coming back to you and want to get your feedback as it is honest and challenging. Be sure you do not use control/power to create dependency needs in your clients; make astrology a learning tool about SELF..and teach as you READ...
Lesson IV(B) Polarities

Gemini/Sagittarius - Gemini is the perennial student of the zodiac and curiously investigating all things, at least on the surfacr. Great communicators, students, asnd somethimes good teachers, these twin signs are also the yin/yang of communication, exerting and expressing outwardly and listening and internalizing communication. The telephone is truly not an extension of Gemini's ear, but it almost seems that way at times, as the telephone is a major appendage to these delightful talkers. They, unlike their Sagittarian polarity, know when to end a conversation. The Sag will oftentimes keep talking and you may be on the ther end of "the never ending story". Geminis are usually very intuitive and have flashes of brilliance, but when they are at their wits end, they need to rest, being a very nervous sign. I have noticed that Gemini's under stress have very tight shoulders and often have tremors, even if they are ever so slight.

Sagittarius/Gemini- Sag is a high minded kind of spirit, always grasping of the highest in ideals, stimulating conversationalist and never satisfied with just one answer. This sign is also quite intuitive but not in a personal sense of the word. Sag loves to be around many people so he can share his ideals and some views within a social context. He/She is a great dancer and sportsperson for the most part. However, when not in his/her body(which happens frequently when one lives in ones head), he/she will smoke too much or drink too much to stop the energy. These people can really talk, carry on a conversation, sometimes even if no one is listening. Hence, they are good professors or lecturers When I work with Sag, I tell them to make very concise statements and keep their dialogue to a minimum..which automatically throws them into a state of void. So they do an a void dance which then gets them to their emotions. Being a fire sign, I love these people, but often wonder why after all is said and done. The negative of Gemini is that they make very poor students as they seems to want to learn, but also know everything...and have a Guru complex.

Cancer/Capricorn --- Cancer is a nurturing, self contained, quietly emotional, caretaking kind of sign. The sign of Cancer is esoteric literature rules "mass consciousness" and therefore the instinctual side of nature and it homes in, makes a home and carries a light within it's soul to attract others in that direction. If I ever want to depend on someone to be there for me, it is always a Cancer type person. The more mature Cancer expands the nurturing to humanity and truly is compassionate with every living creature. Oftentimes to their own detriment, they do not take care of their own emotions first. This will create emotional insecurity which then causes an obsession with home and family in order to find that security. They need to control their emotions and trust their instinctive feelings which are two different things. The negative part of Capricorn is a feigned coldness when hurt and a grudge carrying vendetta that is more harmful to self than others. They want to control you through your being dependent on them so they often create dependencies in their interactions. When angry their stomach lining literally turns red and they are very susceptible to gastric problems. The rule of them is never to eat out of emotional needs. If you know a Cancer, then you know what I mean.

Capricorn/Cancer- a paternal sign, highly responsible ruling the father as a counterpart to Cancer, whcih rules the mother. This sign grows more likeable as they get older and stop the authoritative interaction which is such a "put off" to some people. They grow up perceiving that they have to be responsible for everything and if it is not true, they make it so. Oftentimes they are born into a family that seems to rely on them for strength. Responsibility and paternity, findings identity in career, are all qualities of Capricorn. Capricorns are usually wise beyond their years, but also kind of stingy with their wisdom. They usually have an affinity for the ancient wisdoms and I see them as the Devil Card in the Tarot, which is an earthy wisdom demanding coming down to reality. They often times cannot humble themselves and get too rigid, making their bones brittle or their knees hurt. Arthritis and joint pain can really be a problem, as can bone loss in the gums and teeth area. Capricorns usually have great health, but the transits of late in Uranus and Neptune have given this sign some immunological problems. Getting plenty of rest, vitamins and good nutrition can mostly offset this tendency.
