The Cardinal Signs

Part I - Lesson 4.1

Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn

ARIES: The sign of Action, initiative, new beginnings. It charges right in and holds nothing in reserve. People with strong Aries emphasis in the horoscope generally like to be first. Their favorite time is “Now!” The location of Aries in your chart shows where you tend to be active, energetic, and take initiative.

LIBRA: The sign of Reaction. Aries acts, Libra reacts. Aries is individual action. Libra is joint action. Aries charges right in. Libra is famous for saying “On the other hand”. Libra rules manners and the social graces, things which make cooperation and civil society possible.  The location of Libra in your horoscope shows where you tend to cooperate, seek partners, love peace, quiet, and harmony, and show “good taste”.

CANCER: The sign of Instinctive action. It will figure out a logical solution and then do the opposite because “it feels better”. It can be enormously tenacious when denied something that it wants. As soon as it gets it, it looses interest. However, Cancer is nurturing and emotionally sustaining. Without these qualities, life would be cold indeed.  The location of the sign of Cancer in your horoscope shows where you tend to be moody, emotional, instinctive, and intuitive.

CAPRICORN: The sign of careful, calculated, planned action. Cancer is like pure water which dissolves and expands. Capricorn is like a saturated solution from which crystals form. Capricorn is the organizer of the zodiac. Without it, the Universe would fall to Pisces…I mean to pieces. The location of Capricorn in your horoscope shows where you tend to be efficient, organized, careful, and ambitious
