Sagittarius, November 22-December 21, adapting and learning spirit, aka individuality (fire)
You heat up the astrological wheel as the third fire and ninth sign. As the only fire sign above the horizon, yours is the most objective of where to express your burning passions. Through this objectivity, you can also mimic what it means to be spiritual, gathering followers as a result. Weak followers do not challenge your visions, no matter how flaky they may be. This is why the goddess created Libra and Aquarius as your sibling signs. You need, yes, I said, need Libra's ability to see all perspectives. When your arrows are too tightly wound and narrow-focused, the scale bearers can mildly and persuasively get off the mountain shore and high horse to see where your entitlement has blinded you. Aquarius, however, does not possess the patience of Libra. They will jump in and take your entire quiver, if they know you're about to go off a cliff. (You see, these star children have even a longer-range vision than you do, but they tend to utilize more facts in their mix.) Return to a place where your family originated. If you can't do so literally, take a virtual trip via the Internet.
Aries, March 20-April 19, initiating spirituality (fire)
The first sign is you, first fire and first of all the other 12. You blaze trails, with your sister girl companions being Gemini and Aquarius. Did you bristle at the "sister girl" designation? If you did, your need to grow up is only matched by your need to be considerate of what others want first. Please resist any temptation to be considerate out of a need to save face or to put into your karmic "I did for you, now it's your turn to do for me" bank. Gemini will use humor and trickery to show the immediate (but usually unintended) consequences of your behavior. Gotta love them twins. Aquarius, though, will not play those games. These people love your pioneering spirit, but they will not stand for any entitled or momentary lapses in hypocrisy. You do realize that you can feel as entitled to special treatment as any Leos, right? That's why Aquarius chimes in as not only your sister girl sign but also your best-friend one, too. (A "sister girl" is a designation between black women, where the friendship crosses back and forth between friendship and sisterhood.)
Your sister signs fall in the fruitful water signs.
Virgo, August 23-September 22, adapting and learning earth (physical)
Virgo, the virgin, represents the second earth and sixth sign of the zodiac, aka "circle of animals." Mutable signs occur when the seasons are changing. They are dualistic in nature. Yours is a human sign, as is Gemini (twins) and Aquarius (water bearer). Intact and pure virginal Mary and the other famous Mary Magdalene are symbols of your sign. Virgin did not mean "no sex"; it meant unattached, not owned. Your sister signs are Cancer and Scorpio. Food, home, hearth fires, and a willingness to give abundantly to those you love compose some of the healthiest virtues between you and the moon children. The danger is that complacency and too much comfort lead to slovenly, xenophobic ways. That's where Scorpio helps you reach the depths of your own soul, not the one you absorbed through your heredity. These intense and insightful folks aid in your transition between owning your desires while simultaneously dropping your defenses or expectations of exile. Gotta know the whole you to love the whole you. These next six weeks are all about liberation of your soul! From ... ?
