A while back, I asked member Nick Sweeney, one of our local astrologists, about how he defined each of the signs in Astrology. Before MBTI and The Overleaves System, Astrology was my major reference for personalities. Today, other than occasionally checking out a pretty valid horoscope site(for me anyways- it's generally been very accurate) and helping friends understand the system a bit more, I don't really feel a draw to Astrology anymore- but it was and still is helpful. So I wanted to share a quick list of descriptions and polarities I made for each of the signs a year ago(with the help of a bunch of cross-referenced astrology sites, personal experience, and NickS), just to see if they're generally valid. ARIES- Purposeful action for the sake of self-awareness + self-discovery. -Self-Involved: Quick-tempered, Ignorant, Impatient, Impulsive etc. (The -Aries removes everyone else from the equation and follows only their rules.) +Pioneering: Curious, Energetic, Courageous, Driven etc. (The +Aries stops forcing, and starts exploring. The +Aries includes everyone. When NickS said that the action of an Aries must have a purpose, it felt pretty valid to me.) TAURUS- Ground creative impulses into stable, enduring things/forms. -Rigidity: Possessive, Inflexible, Obstinate, Aloof etc. (The -Taurus just doesn't care, or doesn't realize they do- so they act without the comprehension +Stability brings.) +Stability: Grounding, Nourishing, Securing, Helping/Providing, Loyal etc. (Pretty self-explanatory.) GEMINI- Making connections to learn, understand, express; gathering info to see clearly. -Abstract: Anxious, Inconsistent, Disconnected, Speculative etc. (The -Gemini feels the pull between their conflicting thoughts and emotions- I've found they're the most polarized and inconsistent sign, and that they try to reconcile this with reason or aggression or detachment etc..) +Connecting: Adjustable, Sharing, Curious, Versatile etc. (The +Gemini brings insight through their connections+curiosity that helps bridge their duality.) CANCER- Creating an emotionally secure sanctuary to safely explore feelings. -Moodiness: Petulant, Indirect, Callous, Clingy etc. (-Cancers indulge in their emotions in unhealthy ways- they can be pretty damn paranoid too.) +Tenderhearted: Creative, Securing, Intuitive, Protective, Courageous etc. (+Cancers are emotionally strong and they tend to use this to reach out to others or within.) LEO- Be bold+creative and express you in ways that warm, motivate and uplift. -Self-Assuming: Assumptive, Dominating, Melodramatic, Possessive, Egotistical etc. (Especially when the -Leo's pride+sense of self is wounded, self-assumption can come in to protect them in a myriad of ways- from simple arrogance to taking charge to assuming roles for themselves to fit into/control.) +Integrity: Bighearted, Valiant, Flexible, Creative etc. (The +Leo is filled with exuberance, even if only felt from within.) VIRGO- Rigorous Self-Analysis; and Dedicating that to meaningful work/service. -Counterproductive: Exacting, Interfering, Perfectionist, Procrastinating, Denial etc. (The inherent drive to perfect can overwhelm the -Virgo when all they see are the negatives, shortcomings, burdens, frustrations etc. They will then use their drive for perfectionism as an excuse for their behaviors.) +Constructive: Helpful, Meticulous, Methodical, Enduring (Virgos are tireless workers and analyzers of themselves+others. This is all done for the sake of their work/service.) LIBRA- Creating relationships that reflect beauty, harmony and peace. -Irresolute: Vacillating, Theoretical, Judgmental, Avoidant etc. (-Libras seek to avoid displeasure/conflict and emphasize pleasure/calm, using/doing whatever they can to create such situations.) +Harmonious: Confident, Balanced, Resolute, Diplomatic/Co-Operative etc. (Pretty self-explanatory.) SCORPIO- Transforming yourself through seeing your inner intensities reflected back. -Intense: Compulsive, Obsessive, Bitter/Resentful, Unrelenting etc. (I think the -Scorpio is motivated+fixated from feeling helpless or powerless.) +Magnetic: Self-Transforming, Perceptive, Resourceful, Passionate/Motivated etc. (The +Scorpio, however is motivated to transform and heal.) SAGITTARIUS- Growth and understanding through flexible searching and adventure. -Irresponsible: Avoidant, Restive, Blunt, Inflexible, Aimless etc. (It's pretty clear that if commitment equates loss of freedom, this can result.) +Aspiring: Searching/Seeking, Unrestrained, Adventurous, Open-Minded Philosophizing etc. (The +Sagittarius has a direction/aspiration, and acts upon this to discover new wisdom, truths and possibilities.) CAPRICORN- Bringing what's inside you into your public role/contribution. -Tunnel-Visioned: Concealed Inner Turmoil, Controlling, Dismissive, Detached etc. (The -Capricorn is fixated upon the worth of their choices, often to the point that if those choices hold no worth they are ignored/dismissed/buried in favor of their more worthy goals/pursuits.) +Ambitious: Resourceful/Practical, Hardworking, Responsible, Helpful, Deliberate etc. (The +Capricorn materializes their ideas+impulses by following+building upon them. This is why they're hard workers, they are always climbing and building and structuring.) AQUARIUS- Sharing knowledge+ideals to liberate and progress to a higher potential. -Eccentric: Dogmatic, Alienated, Rebellious, Extremist etc. (The -Aquarius internally divides themselves- with no doubt they're eccentric, but they tend to undermine themselves for this, distance from others to avoid this, or put themselves above others to compensate.) +Progressive: Innovative, Humanitarian/Altruistic, Self-Embodying, Visionary etc. (+Aquarians communicate their ideals to bring radical movement in a positive direction. Many are reformers, and reach out to make a difference.) PISCES- Aware of being the vital sustaining force of your life- a part of the whole. -Excessive: Hypersensitive, Impressionable, Fantasy, Melancholic, Disillusioned etc. (-Pisces are hard for me to pinpoint, they're almost slippery- but I think that in general, they all want something/one inspiring to look forward to, to the point they lose themselves in that or become burdened by it.) +Empathetic: Listener, Intuitive, Chameleon, Charitable etc. (The +Pisces realizes that the realm of intimacy is highly important to them, and that contributing to something they care about is worthwhile. They're one of the more instinctual signs.)
