born in earth

CAPRICORN~TAURUS~VIRGO

practical, useful, structure, productivity, tangible, grounded, sensual, tactile, dependable

It’s common to hear someone described as “earthy.” Such a person blends in with their natural habitat. They’re sensual, meaning they engage with life through the five senses. It takes time to sense the dense physical world, and earth signs can operate at a slower, more thorough pace than the other elements.

They’re oriented toward what’s real, and often this makes them very productive, able to create tangible results. But if there are no balancing elements, earth’s extremes could lead to being a workaholic, hoarding of possessions, pettiness, getting stuck in the mundane, stubbornness, etc.

Capricorn is  known for its initiatory nature, Taurus sinks into the Earth perhaps the deepest, and Virgo is characterized by  change ability.



Cardinal Earth

ambitious, self-reliant, disciplined, persevering, resourceful, creative

Capricorns are both ambitious and determined. Life is one big project for them and they adapt to this by adopting a businesslike approach to most everything they do. Capricorns are practical as well, taking things one step at a time and being as realistic and pragmatic as possible. The Capricorn-born are extremely dedicated to their goals, almost to the point of stubbornness.Those victories sure smell sweet, though, and that thought alone will keep Capricorns going.

The Goat symbolizes Capricorns, and an apt mascot it is. Goats love to climb to the top of the mountain, where the air is clear and fresh. Thankfully, Capricorns are patient, too, and are happy to wait for their ship to come in. The flip side to this staid behavior is that Goats can become quite unforgiving of those who aren’t as diligent or ambitious as they are. Capricorns need to remember that they do need allies along the way, ambitious or otherwise. In any case, once Capricorns receive the recognition and social status they so fervently crave, it’s likely that all will be forgiven.

The element associated with Capricorn is Earth. No big surprise there! Caps are down-to-earth in the sense that they’re not interested in wild ideas or round-the-world dreams. They would much rather stay put and get to work.

The great strengths of the Capricorn-born are their willingness to work hard and their determination to succeed. Their ambition is boundless, yet they are cautious, responsible and always play fair.

Fixed Earth

tenacious, rooted, sensuous, persistent, deliberate, patient, loyal

Taurus, the second sign of the zodiac, is all about reward. Taurus loves the rewards of the game. Think physical pleasures and material goods, for those born under this sign revel in delicious excess. They are also a tactile lot, enjoying a tender, even sensual, touch. Taurus adores comfort and likes being surrounded by pleasing, soothing things.

It’s the Bull that serves as the Taurus’s mascot, and along with that comes the expectation that these folks are bull-headed and stubborn. Yes, they are. This sign has a Fixed Quality attached to it after all, so expect that things will occasionally grind to a halt. That said, Taurus doesn’t start out with the intention of getting stuck. They simply want to get things done, and it’s that steady, dogged persistence that winds up being viewed as stubbornness. Bulls are actually among the most practical and reliable members of the zodiac, and they are happy to plod along, as it were, in pursuit of their goals.

Taurus is ruled by Venus, a lovely goddess who didn’t deny herself many things. In ancient Roman mythology, Venus was the Goddess of Love, Beauty and Pleasure, and Taurus has pretty much taken up where she left off. Bulls are fond of all things pretty, whether it’s in their home, at a museum or on the stage.

The Element associated with Taurus is Earth. No pie-in-the-sky for these practical folks, since they’d much rather be on terra firma. Bulls tend toward conservatism, and this is often seen in their day-to-day behavior.

The great strength of Taurus is in their stability, loyalty and dogged determination. Bulls want to get the job done, and they will.


Mutable Earth

discriminating, organized, clever, wholesome, responsible, caring, loyal

Virgo is the sixth sign of the zodiac, to be exact, and that’s the way Virgos like it: exacting. Those born under this sign are forever the butt of jokes for being so picky and critical (and they can be), but their ‘attention to detail’ is for a reason: to help others. Virgos, more than any other sign, were born to serve, and it gives them great joy.

Virgo is represented by the Virgin, although this association should not be taken literally. Rather, Virgos tend to take on some of the qualities of a Virgin, things like modesty and humanity. Some might consider them repressed, although Virgins would argue that it’s a noble quality, as opposed to a negative one. Most of all, Virgos enjoy indulging their practical and logical side and poring over their projects to the nth degree. They are also balanced and fair in their assessments in keeping with the Mutable Quality assigned to this sign.

Virgo is ruled by Mercury, and as portrayed in ancient Roman mythology, Mercury wasn’t one to sit still for long. This swift-footed god was a bundle of energy, both physically and mentally, and that pretty much sums up the Virgin’s makeup. A Virgo’s brain is in overdrive most of the time, which is why they get so much done. Those born under this sign are also able communicators and use their mental acuity to maximum advantage.

The Element associated with Virgo is Earth, and in keeping with that, most Virgos are grounded, salt-of-the-earth types. The flash and dash can go to others, since Virgos would much rather be humble and easy-going. That said, Virgins do enjoy material possessions and are picky about what they bring into their lives. Some might even go as far as calling them self-centered, but it’s really more of a desire to surround themselves with what’s right — for them.

The great strength of the Virgo-born is in their practicality, sharp mind and attention to detail. When merged with their willingness to serve, Virgos become essential helpmates.



Those with Earth signs often seem to inhabit their physical bodies which can be described in new-age terms as “grounded.” Whatever their ground is — whether it is a high-rise office building or rural cottage — they’re sending out feelers through the senses. The physical is the densest plane, and they’re masters at assessing and organizing tangible things.

One expression of Earth sign qualities, and I’m envisioning a hippie chick here, might be someone who is easy-going and languid, aware of the local flora and fauna, often have leaves in their hair or dirt on their hands. They’re intimately attuned to the dance of nature, and love to spend time outdoors.

But Earth signs can just as easily work their magic in urban places, since they’re often centers of a certain kind of high-level productivity. The focus on the tasks at hand make them vulnerable to the “all work and no play” life. They’re more apt to base their reality on what is around them in form, instead of creating personal myths or assigning symbolic meanings to everything. That’s why too much of a good thing — Earth — can be stifling to things like inspiration, going on faith, a sense of purpose.

Earth signs are here to shape, manifest, cultivate and revel in Earthly delights. Their gift to others is bringing form to ideas, making them a balancing partner for an idle dreamer with potential. They tend their own garden, and inspire others to make the most of theirs.

born in air

AQUARIUS~GEMINI~LIBRA
analytical, curious, thinking, intellectual, social, detached

Those with planets in air signs use their minds to make sense of their lives. With Air, there’s more space between the life lived and the observing mind. The element of Air is attached to the signs Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. It also rules the Third, Seventh and Eleventh Houses. It is rarefied air which usually surrounds those graced by this Element, as this is the marker of the intellectual. Airy people are smart thinkers and handle abstract reasoning well. They love to analyze, synthesize and probe. The gift of Air is flexibility, and their ability to experience life through many prisms. They’re often excellent communicators, storytellers, interpreters and journalists. They link people together socially, and often have a curiosity that keeps them out and about.The signs of the Zodiac are grouped by elements in their triplicity, but they are also grouped by something known as their quality. Each type of quality has a unique path of expression. For the Air signs, Libra is the leader, Aquarius is able to doggedly follow one train of thought and Gemini  is as mercurial as the planet that rules it.



Fixed Air

original, independent, progressive, pioneering, intellectual, compassionate, eccentric
Aquarius is the eleventh sign of the zodiac, and Aquarians are the perfect representatives for the Age of Aquarius. Those born under this sign have the social conscience needed to carry us into the new millennium.
Aquarians are visionaries, progressive souls who love to spend time thinking about how things can be better. They are also quick to engage others in this process, which is why they have so many friends and acquaintances. Making the world a better place is a collaborative effort for Aquarians.
Aquarius is symbolized by the Water Bearer. In much the same way that the Water Bearer brings that precious liquid as a gift, Aquarians shower the world with their thoughts and new ideas. Luckily for Aquarians (and the rest of us), they are at a near-genius level, so their minds churn out some amazing things. While Aquarians are happy to bestow these ideas as a gift with no strings attached, they are much happier when the rest of the world agrees with them. Naysayers will quickly find out that Aquarians can be impatient, even temperamental, with those who disagree.
While Aquarians are generally sympathetic and compassionate, they like it when things go their own quirky way. Some might call their behavior eccentric (and they would be right), but when you consider that the Aquarian’s heart is truly in the right place, a few oddities should be overlooked. In their own way, Aquarians treasure their many friends and acquaintances and want to give back as much as they can.
Aquarius is ruled by Saturn and Uranus. Powerful Saturn was considered the father of many gods in ancient Roman times, and was the original ruler of Aquarius. Uranus is the oldest of the gods in Roman mythology; this planet was discovered much later than Saturn and was only more recently assigned to this sign.
The element associated with Aquarius is Air, and that means the rarefied air of the intellectual. Aquarians will accomplish much with their broad and logical minds, entertaining complex and scientific ideas for the betterment of all. Those born under this sign are altruistic, humane people who are determined to make a difference.
The great strengths of the Aquarius-born are their vision, intellect and humanity.

Mutable Air

engaging, curious, childlike, versatile, witty, entertaining, charming
Gemini is the third sign of the zodiac, and those born under this sign will be quick to tell you all about it. That’s because they love to talk! The driving force behind a Gemini’s conversation is their mind. The Gemini-born are intellectually inclined, forever probing people and places in search of information.
The more information a Gemini collects, the better. Sharing that information later on with those they love is also a lot of fun, for Gemini’s are supremely interested in developing their relationships. They are always enjoyable, since Gemini’s are bright, quick-witted and the proverbial life of the party. Even though their intellectual minds can rationalize forever and a day, Gemini’s also have a surplus of imagination waiting to be tapped.
Since Gemini’s are a mix of the yin and the yang, they are represented perfectly by the Twins. The Gemini-born can easily see both sides of an issue, a wonderfully practical quality.They can be wishy-washy, too, changing their mood on a simple whim. It’s this characteristic which readily suggests the Mutable Quality assigned to this sign. Mutable are flexible and go with the flow. Further, the Twins are adaptable and dexterous and can tackle many things at once. It’s a good thing, too, when you consider their myriad interests. The downside of such a curious mind, however, can be a lack of follow-through.
Ruled by Mercury, Gemini’s exhibit a delicious brand of mercurial energy. They are quick-thinking, quick-witted and fast on their feet, much like the messenger god of Roman mythology that rules their sign.
Gemini’s generally have their hearts in the right place. It’s that ample energy which can also paint them as scatter brained and unfocused, but behind all that zipping around, the Twins are busily filing all that good data away.
The element associated with Gemini is Air. Air signs are the thinking person’s signs, and the Twins don’t disappoint. Those born under this sign prize intellect and consider it the key to all things.
The great strength of the Gemini-born is in their ability to communicate effectively and to think clearly





Cardinal Air

charming, fair-minded, diplomatic, sophisticated, artistic, sociable, clear thinking
Libra is the seventh sign of the zodiac, and its at this point in the zodiac that we start to see a shift. While the first six signs of the zodiac focus on the individual, the last six focus on the individual’s contact with others and with the world. Libras are first and foremost focused on others and how they relate to them. We can call this the sign of Partnership with a capital ‘P’ because these folks do not want to be alone! For a Libra, everything is better if it’s done as a pair. Libras are good when paired up, too, since they epitomize balance, harmony and a sense of fair play.
It’s the Scales that symbolize Libra, and just like that balancing mechanism wants to stay even, Libras want to be on an even keel. Think of the Scales of Justice and how they work at striking the right balance. Likewise, Libras are objective, just and want to do what’s best for everyone. It’s possible, though, that this penchant for fairness is for a different reason: Libras abhor conflict. The scales study every possible angle in the hopes of achieving peace and harmony, so much so that others may see them as fickle and indecisive.
Libra is ruled by Venus. In ancient Roman mythology, Venus was a smooth seductress who was at her best amid pleasurable excess. Well, Libras are certainly carrying the torch for her today. The Scales are cultured, refined and love beautiful things.
The element associated with Libra is Air, and that means reaching higher, specifically to the higher mind. Libras like to put their mind to good use, and enjoy communicating their thoughts to others. They also love the colors of the sunset sky, that melding of ivory, pink and light blue. In the game of love, Libras are a bundle of energy, romantic and loyal to the core. The Scales need to be on the lookout for their lower backs, though, which tend to shoulder any burdens they may be carrying.
The great strength of the Libra-born is their quest for fairness, peace and harmony. That the Scales are the great diplomats of the zodiac further helps their case. A beautiful journey this will be, thanks to the Libra’s inimitable sense of style.

Those with planets in Air signs lead with the head, and those wheels are always turning to analyze and interpret their world. These are the “idea people,” who breeze in and offer a fresh perspective on the situation at hand. As observers, they’re often seeing from a loftier position, and able to offer clarity that others don’t have.

The air signs are social creatures, since their currency is ideas, and they’ll find more stimulation when out mingling. Some are drawn to words and become professional communicators, while others — especially Aquarius — have a more conceptual way of thinking. Air signs are masters at navigating through the collective waters, and therefore are astute commentators of the cultural trends, attitudes, consciousness of the times.

When Air is out of balance, you can encounter a talking head, someone cut off from his own physical self. Air signs are more vulnerable to the excesses of our mind-body split, and could benefit from yoga and other somatic practices. A meditation practice helps Air signs calm the static.

In relationships, the distance of Air to their emotions can be refreshing. They’re great conversationalist because they’re the keepers of so much knowledge, gossip, strange factoids, etc. Talking with an inspired Air sign can be like skipping through a kind of virtual reality full of detail, specificity and local color.



NOW, FOCUS ON THE AIR THAT SURROUNDS YOU.


born from stars

i have this same theory in my mind that i am sure a lot of other humans probably do. a lot of other humans speculate it, disagree, question, as we all should. you see for me, we are born from stars. not that we actually come out of them, because we all know that we come out of the magnificent goddesses of the earth. the point i am trying to make is the fact that all existence, life force, air, water, earth, fire, animal,  men, especially women, are all controlled/effected by the rotation of this earth and all of the planets that surround it.  we are born from stars, we are the stars, the stars are us.

”these things can not be hidden: the sun, the moon and the truth”


The Sun Sign is what most people know without a doubt. It is also (usually) the most obvious part of the personality. The Sun is the conscious self. It is the behavior one is most comfortable with. It is the every day, fair-weather self. But there is much more to you than your Sun Sign…. when emotions run high… when the the Moon Sign comes out we generally react in emotional situations according to the Moon Sign. This is the primal, subconscious self. You may even fantasize about behaving more like that sign, but it may not feel natural to you unless you’re filled with happiness or sadness or anger. The Moon Sign also comes out when you feel very safe – either by yourself or with people you trust.The Rising SignThis is the most difficult element of the chart to explain, but may be even more important than the Sun Sign. In a nutshell, it is the Higher Self. You came into this life with one of the 12 signs of the zodiac on the horizon. This sign represents your horizon – your aspirations, what you look for in the world, and what you want to reflect. It is not surprising that much of your outward appearance, or the way you present yourself to others is determined by the Rising Sign, We want to attract and bring into our lives that which we aspire to.

what rules you…..

beauty is a form of genius but is higher, indeed, than genius, as it needs no explanation. it is of the great facts in the world like sunlight, or springtime, or the reflection in dark of that silver shell we call the moon.

The Moon is one of the most important factors in astrology. In your natal chart, she has a triple meaning. For both genders, she represents sensitivity, instinct, the unconscious, and the way you deal with your emotions, your part of femininity, your daily moods, your imagination, and your intuition.

controller of emotion…

in some cases the moon is you. in any case The Moon.

the four elements EARTH, AIR, WATER and FIRE

Earth Signs – Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn

Air Signs – Gemini, Libra, Aquarius


Water Signs – Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces


Fire Signs – Aries, Leo, Sagittarius



Each sign projects a set of deep-seated behavioural characteristics and typical responses to the influence of circumstances. Each sign also symbolises one of the stations on our spiritual journey. As we undergo spiritual growth,  exploring the process of karmic fruition, each of the signs presents us with characteristic challenges and rewards. The nature of these in terms of a sign’s character is revealed through the combination of its element (Fire, Air, Earth, or Water) and its quality (Cardinal, Fixed, or Mutable). The energies of the signs do have some meaning in themselves, but are most strongly expressed as a backdrop for the planets and their relationships, as well as their placement with relation to the house cusps,  especially the angles (1st, 10th, 7th,and 4th houses, in order of strength).

Crystal healing is a technique that employs stones and crystals as healing tools. The practitioner places crystals on different parts of the body, often corresponding to the chakras  or places crystals around the body in an attempt to construct. When the stones are placed in the area of the chakra the colour of the stones may correspond to the colour which is associated with the corresponding chakra. Going from the tail bone to the top of the head, the colours are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. Stones may also be used at the feet in an attempt at grounding the individual, or held in the hands. Practitioners may also use tools such as crystal wands, which are placed near the receiver’s body, or near a certain ‘blocked’ chakra, or use to perform psychic energy.

play as though you know

We don’t care what we are or what we look like. Our tendency is to explore, to express our creativity, to seek pleasure and avoid pain. As little children, we are wild and free; we run around naked without self-consciousness or self-judgment. We speak the truth because we live in truth. Our attention is in the moment; we are not afraid of the future or ashamed of the past.

   The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives.

Iolite stones help you to see, imagine and allow yourself to experience via your visionary abilities. If you imagine it you can experience it… so you may bring it into reality. Your inner journeys are expanded under its influence as are your intuitive gifts. It is both a throat chakra and a third eye chakra stone… and will aid you to open the third eye and utilize its abilities. Iolite stones may help you in many areas of your life… but the ability to stimulate the imagination is powerful.  it is a major part of bringing those things you desire into your life.  You have the ability to live the life of your dreams.
