The Personal Signs: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer
They Operate Through Direct Action and Experience

by Rebecca Brents

Up front and uncomplicated

The first four signs of the Zodiac are the Personal Signs -- Aries, Taurus, Gemini and Cancer. They engage life and understand the world through their own direct actions and experiences. Their ambitions don't depend much on other people's cooperation or group support. They are fairly stand-alone in who they are, what they do and what they want.

There is a refreshing candor to the Personal Signs. They are upfront in what they do and honest about what they want, with a "what you see is what you get" simplicity. They don't often include others in their plans, and depend mostly on themselves to get what they're after. They keep their own counsel and may not be real approachable unless they're in the mood for company.

Aries acts. Aries people have their own goals. They're willing to do all the work themselves ... and the rest of the world better not get in their way. They often consider other people "excess baggage." They make their best progress on their own. They are shot-full of self-confidence and they don't second-guess themselves.

They see the world as their playground and take risks that make the other signs blanch. They trust their own experience; they trust their own judgment. They value immediate results ... so that's what they aim for -- every time out of the chute.

Taurus builds. Taurus people are here to engage and enjoy the material world. Their sharpest perceptions come through their physical senses. They value things they can touch, weigh, measure ... and own. They are the most materialistic, the most possessive of all the signs. Common sense tells us, "you can't take it with you," but Taurus is determined to try.

In the meantime, they relate to the world as a garden of earthly delights. They revel in fine food, soft fabrics, good wines and great sex. They also have an unrivaled instinctive appreciation of beauty, art and the natural world -- and a hedonistic nature that lets them enjoy these without reservation. They're happy to share if that's part of the pleasure -- but their main objective is to "get theirs." Period.

Gemini learns. Gemini exists in the shifting, malleable world of his own ideas, thoughts and perceptions. He's here to scout out information, collect it and spread it around. His mind is a vessel carrying him through a sea of sights, sounds and knowledge ... and he is a most eager and adept sailor. Other people, other minds, are accessories in his quest, but he figures he does pretty well on his own.

He loves facts; he loves trivia. Quantity is often preferred over quality -- because he hates to be bored, and he's not terribly discriminating in his entertainment. He loves to read, write, talk and do research. He never met a scrap of data he didn't want to own.

He may not be deep or thorough, but he is diligent. The data-mining never stops -- and it lets him pull out something to say on any subject at any time. All you have to do is ask.

Cancer feels. Cancers are creatures of feelings and emotions. They are sensitive in every sense of the word, and their intuition -- their sixth sense -- is as real and informative for them as any of the other five. They don't try to explain themselves to the other signs -- not even the other Water Signs. They don't expect them to understand. Nor do they need them to.

They have keen empathy, but aren't really open to "share the experience." It's enough that they understand what another person feels, what that other person is going through. And if the knowledge runs on a one-way street, that's ok with them, too. They don't want to abide others' cloddish judgments of them.

They don't want to be told they're too sensitive. They don't want to hear how they should or shouldn't feel ... filtered through someone else's values. They are what they are. They make no apologies ... and they're happy to keep it to themselves. When they're safely shut up in their shell, just don't come knocking.

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. 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.

Born with the Sun in Aries -- The Aries Character ---> Aries is the Spring Fire Sign -- Direct and to the point -- Passion is never a problem for Aries. Nor is self-assertion. Nor is being downright pushy and tromping on toes if that gets a job done. Aries is long on initiative and ambition, notoriously short on tact -- and few will apologize for that.

Born with the Sun in Taurus -- The Taurus Character ---> The symbol of Taurus is the bull. -- Takin' it easy -- Want some words to describe Taurus? How about "laid back" and "easy going?" Taurus likes to mellow out, take life at a measured stride and on its own time schedule. What can I say? Taurus believes in conserving physical resources ... and "conserving" its own energy is first on the list.

Understanding The Sun in Aries ---> Connect with your initiative -- The Sun travels through the Astrology sign Aries once a year, a trip that lasts about a month. The Sun is in Aries from late March until late April. The energy of the Sun in Aries is dynamic, assertive and competitive -- and accompanies a rise in these attitudes in everyone.

Understanding the Sun in Taurus ---> There is a lush fertility to Taurus,the Spring Earth Sign -- In touch with the sensual side of life -- The Sun travels through the Astrology sign Taurus once a year, a trip that lasts about a month. The Sun is in Taurus from late April until late May. The energy of the Sun in Taurus is placid and pleasure-loving.

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. This energy supports, nourishes, stabilizes, and promotes growth - especially growth on investments. These signs are conservative, solid, pragmatic, constructive, and interested in administering "real circumstances" in the material world.
