* Dividing the Zodiac
Organizing signs that share common ground

by Rebecca Brents

break

Mixing, matching and grouping the signs

There are several ways to divide the Zodiac signs into different classifications -- based on different criteria. The simplest way assigns gender to the signs. Signs are assessed as either masculine or feminine -- and it has nothing to do with sex. It has to do with temperament. Masculine signs are those who are proactive, assertive and initiating. Feminine signs are passive, receptive and responsive.

In today's climate of political correctness, these long-standing designations can raise a few hackles, but this distinction is standard in the metaphysical world. Personally, I prefer to think of the pairing as yang and yin. That says it perfectly, and if you can go with that -- I invite you to.

* Masculine Signs / Feminine Signs -- It has nothing to do with sex ---> Two orientations on the world ---> In Astrology and metaphysics, Masculine and Feminine refers not to gender or personal manner, but to one's basic orientation on the world and one's preferred strategies for dealing with problems.

* Masculine Signs -- The Fire and Air Signs ---> Signs of Life and Intellect ---> Essentially, "masculine" signs prefer to seize the moment, make things happen and change what doesn't suit them with their actions and choices. Masculine sign people are life's movers-and-shakers.

* Feminine Signs -- The Earth and Water Signs ---> Signs of Practicality and Emotion ---> Where masculine signs are dynamic, self-motivating and proactive, feminine signs take a more subtle, passive approach when dealing with challenge or working for change.

The Fire Signs -- Aries, Leo, Sagittarius ---> Fire Signs get things done ---> The Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius represent energy that is directly involved with action, leadership, personal charisma, and self-expression. These signs are self-confident, dramatic, self-promoting, exuberant, vivacious, and captivating.

* The Earth Signs -- Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn ---> Earth Signs take care of practicalities ---> The Earth Signs: Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn represent energy that is directly concerned with practical issues, physical substance, financial matters, and the "business" of living.

The Air Signs -- Gemini, Libra, Aquarius ---> Air Signs handle information ---> The Air Signs: Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius represent energy that is directly concerned with ideas, information, intellect, opinions, facts, perspectives and communications skills.

The Water Signs -- Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces ---> Water Signs are emotional ---> The Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces represent emotional, instinctive, and subconscious energy that is nurturing, healing, and transformative. They are feeling, sensitive, intuitive, responsive, protective, and passionate.
