So as it was very recently my birthday, I thought it would be a nice idea to do a little blog series on Astrological signs.
Now, I am NOT an Astrologer, but I have been following Astrology for a number of years now, even before I started reading Tarot.
Many people think Astrology (And Tarot) is a load of old nonsense, if you are one of those people this post may not be for you.
However if you are interested in how we can use our Sun Sign in a fun way to gain a little insight into who we are as individuals…read on!
*These posts will be focusing on our Sun Sign, the sign that corresponds to where The Sun was positioned at the time of our birth. This is the Sign that most of us will already know, and is what most popular horoscopes are based on. This is the Sign that reflects our outer personalities, the way we show up in the world and are seen by others.
If you would like to know what your Sun Sign is, or want more in-depth Astrological information, take a look here.
There are 12 Astrological signs and a mix of them will be sitting in different places in your personal natal chart, depending on where planets were positioned at the time of your birth.
The Astrological signs are grouped into four elements: Fire, Air, Water and Earth.
The first group I want to look at are the Fire Signs.
The Fire Signs consist of:
Sagittarius, Aries and Leo
Each sign is represented by its own Major Arcana Tarot Card:
Sagittarius – Temperence: A card all about balance and tempering ones nature.
Aries – The Emperor: A card about living from a place of power.
Leo – Strength: A card about taming the inner beast.
The suit in the Tarot that corresponds to the Fire Signs, is the Suit of Wands.
Fire sign people will tend to be action orientated, full of ideas, passion and creativity.
They are the doers, sometimes acting impulsively, they are not very comfortable hanging around and just waiting for something to happen.
This personality trait, often leads to them being travelers, whether that be physically travelling around the world, moving and living in many different places, or constantly on a voyage of self-discovery.
They can also burn out rather fast too however. As all that fast action can leave one depleted if not balanced out.
Because of all the life experience that Fire Sign people accumulate, they will often always be teachers, whether in an actual classroom setting or to the people around them.
Do you know any such people? Do you recogise any of these traits in yourself?
Remember that if your Sun Sign is a Fire Sign, you may well have other signs in your natal chart that do balance you out.
However what are some of the things fire sign people can do to keep themselves balanced? To harness all of that fire power?
Understand that even though you may be able to make decisions quickly, not everyone likes doing things this way.
Take into account the pace of how different people in your life move.
Also remember that sometimes you are moving too fast for yourself. If you experience anxiety regularly, or just have a tendency to become drained easily, slow down for your own sake, and practice grounding activities such as Meditation and Yoga.
Be mindful of your emotions
Passion is a wonderful thing, but it also requires some level of discipline.
Following all of your passions right now may not be practical, don’t forget to plan and take measured steps when it comes to what you desire.
Also be mindful of acting impulsively, think things through to a larger degree than you may feel is necessary. This will help you to curb those rash impulses.
Accept that you can do almost anything you set your mind to
Fire sign people, can really make things happen in your life and in the lives of others.
This is a really positive trait and one which you should own.
Don’t hold yourself back through fear.
Use your natural astrological skills to manifest your dreams and make the life you wish a reality.
Much love always Txx
