astrology, Zodiac 1.0

Libra 1.0

Libra is the seventh sign of the zodiac. They are the balanced scales that are an extension of the Virgo constellation. Libra a Cardinal and Air sign. They Start the fall equinox in the northern hemisphere and the time period is September 22 or 23 to October 22 or 23. Their ruling planet is Venus. They are the Masculine aspect of the planet. This sign is about initiating one on one contacts, for personal gain. Venus and Aphrodite are the Goddess of Libra. They govern love, sensuality, fortune, beauty, and relationships. Aphrodite was the Greek goddess of prostitutes because, with the Greeks, only the most beautiful women could be prostitutes. Aphrodite was born from the castrated scrotum of Uranus that was cast into the ocean making the white ocean foam she came out of. Libras take on the beauty, relationship, and fortune aspect of Venus.

They are flirty and usually try to keep a harmonious, beautiful existence, though they start as much mess as the peace they claim to hold. Many see Libra as superficial and unable to make up their mind on anything. Though that is not always the case. They keep their personal intentions and live to themselves giving everyone else a flowery version of who they are. Many Libras have to ability to gain financial success from others given that the second house of material gains for Libra is Scorpio. There is more to say with someone’s second house being Scorpio, but I’ll leave that for Libra 2.0. Emotionally, this sign stays on the practical side of things being Capricorn is found here. There has been a limit placed on them with their ability to express how they feel. There was a need to mature at a young age. Though, the emotional and home life over this balanced sign will get better with age.

In relationships, they are often dealing with a strong-willed partner. Usually, someone with strong Marian qualities, be it Scorpio or Aries. At first glance, the other person directs how the relationship goes. Libras would seem to go along with this and do what they want to do anyway. Or, use their diplomatic skill to indirectly manipulate how the relationship goes. As for a career, Libras will do well with things that Venus governs like beauty, relationships, one on one interactions, and luxury. Libra is the sign tenth from the tenth house of Capricorn they will do well in Saturnian rules, e.g., lawyers, judges, in the federal government, tax accountants, architectures, etc.. Lastly they could find careers in women industries like fashion, makeup, beauty,  midwives. Libras can find themselves in the food industry as well.

The phrase for Libras is I balance.

Taurus 1.0

Okie Dokie. Now for Taurus. Taurus is the bull. A bull with a woman dancing on its back as a show of strength and grace. The time period for Taurus is April 20th to May 21st. They are the first earth sign, and the first fixed sign. The ruling planet of Taurus is Venus. When you look at the characteristics of Taurus you are looking at the feminine principle of Venus. Venus has masculine and feminine qualities like all the planets. Its male aspect is Libra. To understand this sign more you have to look at the house it comes from and the goddess that gives it it’s qualities. Taurus is from the second house of possessions and material values we own. This house governs how we attract those things. The Goddesses to look at for Taurus is, traditionally, Aphrodite and Venus. There is not enough raw material on her as there was for the god Ares. I think it is because we know that Venus is materialistic, sexual and attractive. Aphrodite is the Greek Goddess of love, fortune, sexuality, and beauty. She is the beautiful feminine know for her mischief (this is better for Libra) and desires. Taurus take the practical and materialistic aspect of Venus. They personify her indulgence of physical/earthly pleasures. They enjoy everything that says luxury and comfort. The best word for Taurus is hedonist. The lazy hedonist if you want to be more exact.

Then, there is the earth aspect of Taurus. The Earth element takes on three aspects through the zodiac. Earth presents its self through Taurus as steadfast, consistent, and practical.  Though Taurus is reliable they tend to enjoy leisure more than normal. As the first fixed sign of the zodiac Taurus sets the lazy and stubborn tone for all the other fixed signs. It is also hard to get a Taurus to move on a decision  they have set there mind to just like it is hard to get this sign to move any faster than their current pace-they just will not do it. in fact they move slower if that is possible. The bull is normally emotionally self-centered. Yet, they are creative people able to see intrinsic beauty in the things around the- notice I said things not people.  Though there can be a touch of fire when it comes to how they feel, you will never see it on the surface. Though because emotions aren’t practical (aannnnddd you can’t make them be) they can’t keep their emotions under wrap forever. This is usually when Taurus explodes violently. I’m mean violently. From what I’ve seen it is worst than Aries. This is mainly because the temper is under pressure. For a gloss over on relationships this sign is about ownership when it comes to there partner- you are their property . They are sensual lovers and tend, if they don’t have a crap ton of Aries or Gemini placements, to take their time with pleasure. They enjoy stability in relationships so don’t play around on them or try to make them jealous. If you do try, you will get no where with this sign. Career-wise, it will benefit Taurus greatly if they network with people, all type of people in the career world.  Taurus can land the job the always hoped and dreamed for if they put their mind to it. Oddly enough Taurus would be useful in the sciences given their 10th house is Aquarius. Something to think about.  Any Whoville… Oh, something to add the phrase for Taurus is I have.

So, I’m ending this here…
