* Masculine Signs / Feminine Signs
It has nothing to do with sex

Two orientations on the world

When Astrologers speak of masculine and feminine signs, it's not the sexually charged meaning of our gender-sensitive politically-correct culture, but the yin and yang in Chinese philosophy.

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.

Essentially, "masculine" signs prefer to seize the moment, make things happen and change what doesn't suit them with their actions and choices. Feminine signs take a more subtle, passive approach when dealing with challenge or working for change.
