Elemements, Compatibility, & More

Pay attention to the simple motion of the MOON through the signs.  If we are paying attention we are able to anticipate the underlying Mood of our days.

As we watch, the Moon (along with the general mood) drifts through one sign after another, creating observable patterns.

Every 2.5 days the Moon shifts into another sign.

The order of the Signs is as follows:

Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces.

The Elements tell us a great deal about how the Signs encounter each other and work together. In considering the compatibility of the Elements think about the fact that Air feeds Fire, Fire thrives on Air; Earth Supports Water, Water shapes Earth. Compatibility is almost as simple as that!

Each Sign belongs to one of the Four Elements:

  • Fire Signs:  Aries, Leo, Sagittarius – Fire Signs are warm, enthusiastic, and impatient
  •  Earth Signs:  Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn – Earth Signs are dependable, conservative, and purposeful
  • Air Signs:  Gemini, Libra, Aquarius – Air Signs are curious, objective, and social.
  • Water Signs:  Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces – Water Signs are private, self-contained, and sensitive.

Each Sign also belongs to a Modality: 

  • Cardinal: Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn – Cardinal Signs are active, forceful, and assertive
  • Fixed: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius – Fixed Signs are cautious, stubborn, and not readily altered
  • Mutable: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces – Mutable Signs are adaptable, easy-going, and flexible

If you deeply understand the Elements and the Modalities you are a long ways toward understanding the Signs. Each Sign belongs to one Element and one Modality. It is a neat, tidy system. See if you can understand how it works.

Meditate on the Elements and Modalities, bring them together into the Signs. Can you feel how deep that understanding can take you? 

Aries is Cardinal Fire. Taurus is Fixed Earth, Gemini is Mutable Air, Cancer is Cardinal Water, Leo is Fixed Fire, Virgo is Mutable Earth, Libra is Cardinal Air, Scorpio is Fixed Water, Sagittarius is Mutable Fire, Capricorn is Cardinal Earth, Aquarius is Fixed Air, Pisces is Mutable Water.

Friday, November 16, 2012:

We wake this morning with the MOON IN CAPRICORN (entered at 5:36AM EST).

Life feels slower, more deliberate, we feel more cautious and more inclined toward solitude and personal ambition.  We seek a feeling of accomplishment.  Perhaps we can complete something that has been neglected while we were more inclined toward socialization and fun for the past few days.

This afternoon and evening bring the MOON into contact with URANUS in the early afternoon and PLUTO in the evening.

There is bound to be a sense of shifting sand, dark intensity, or electrical currents in our personal lives.

How do we hold together what is trying to come apart? How do we let go of what we feel is so necessary to who we believe ourselves to be?

This is a common dilemma in many of our lives right now. Each time the MOON ENTERS A CARDINAL SIGN (right now about once a week) the energy of the URANUS SQUARE PLUTO is reactivated and we are reminded of the path we have been on since mid-summer.

Sit, take time alone. Allow the changes.

Sometimes we need to be reminded that it is our attempt to hold back the change that hurts the most. Fighting against the winds of change is a losing battle. Perhaps whatever it is that is demanding change doesn’t need to be thrown away completely, but it does need to be transformed! No quick fix, no band aid cure will do the trick. We needs a total make-over!  Trying to hold together what is coming apart batters our soul.

Rest, watch the change. Allow yourself to feel whatever comes with it. Don’t hid from the pain with drugs, alcohol or whatever else we may self-medicate with. alcohol

Detach and wait. The silver lining is right there! Keep watching for it!
