Masculine Energy in Astrology

First of all, think of "masculine energy" as it applies to concepts in Astrology as comparable to yang energy in Oriental philosophy rather than as maleness in the biological sense. We're talking about an abstraction here, a description of a basic physical principle or force, not the physical assets & urges required for biological reproduction.

Masculine energy in metaphysical terms is outwardly expressive energy, overt, obvious, forceful, even coercive. This is an energy that takes charge / takes action / makes deliberate changes when it wants to accomplish something. It seems (or claims) to use logic, analysis & reason when making decisions. Its power seems grounded in its cerebral, charismatic nature.

Masculine energy is extroverted, concerned with leadership, status & authority. It is energetic, active rather than passive. It strives to stand out in a group & attract a following, to make its preferences known & its voice clearly heard. Masculine energy engages the world more than it reacts to it.

Sun energy, regardless of its sign, is considered masculine energy. The owner may be quiet, introverted, artistic, contemplative in personality, but his essential self is fueled by the power of masculine energy nevertheless. There is a forceful substance to his being that may only come out under duress or in other emergencies, but it exists & is his to use at his discretion. There is an unseen competitiveness in his character & "hidden steel" that may surprise those who tangle with him.

Everyone has masculine energy in his or her character -- some more than others. Masculine energy is, in fact, an essential component in creating a complete, coherent, functioning personality. It is an important source of courage, worldly ambition & motivation that sustains Life & bestows the power required to make impact on the world, positive or otherwise.

This is a standard length sample of this feature.
It is the latest essay published in this series.

Masculine Energy in Astrology
Gender in Metaphysics

* 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.

* 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 physical 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.

* Yin-Yang -- A fundamental feature in Oriental philosophy -- It describes how reality works ---> Opposites in perfect balance ---> The concept of Yin-Yang is an essential component in ancient Chinese philosophy -- and like many philosophical concepts it is extremely simple to understand, but at the same time extremely hard to accurately define. Simple definitions open the discussion to a lot of quibbling, hair-splitting and semantic disagreements ... but here goes anyway.
