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. Masculine signs are active, spontaneous, overtly ambitious and more interested in imposing their will on the world than adjusting to what exists. Masculine signs deal with force, identity and intellect.
Masculine signs show initiative, overt ambition and ability to conceptualize and communicate verbally. With a majority of planets in masculine signs in your horoscope, you are a doer-and-thinker. You communicate with actions and words. You put out ideas or create changes with your energy. That constitutes "value" for you.
The Fire signs are Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. The Air signs are Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. They are the masculine signs.
Aries is about discovering the power of initiative, using physical energy and ambition to have an impact on the world. Aries feels desire and takes assertive action to satisfy it. Aries is immediate, dynamic, impatient and self-confident. It uses insistent force, its own strong will and sometimes outright belligerence and intimidation to get what it wants.
Gemini is about communicating, learning, working with information, moving around and sharing ideas. Gemini works to increase its intellectual understanding of everything. It is constantly thinking, figuring stuff out, making connections, seeing patterns, comparing and contrasting. Gemini likes to talk, read, write, listen and exchange knowledge -- to share what it knows and learn what you know.

It wants recognition, respect and applause. It is self-expressive and intent on developing its own creative talents. It works to be significant and impressive, to have fun and be admired, popular, even envied. Leo is self-centered and always dignified.
Libra is about forming alliances and working through partnerships to extend its influence, power and reach. It is learning to accommodate other perspectives, needs and considerations.
