KNOW What your ZODIAC Symbol says about YOU

The Zodiac is therefore divided motivationally by the elements.The fire signs of Aries, Leo and Sagittarius constitute the impulse of duty.The earth signs of Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn represent the wealth impulse.Gemini, Libra and Aquarius indicate the pleasure principle and Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces, the occult and spiritual pathway.


The glyph represents the horns of the Ram and is an Egyptian symbol.On a more esoteric level, the symbol stands for the upward flow of spirit - as in a fountain, the Universal consciousness in its creative aspect. It can also be said to represent the sprouting of a seed, from which germination results in the tree and fruit.In its seed form it represents potentiality.


The Taurean glyph on the purely material level of representation, appears to look like the head of a bull, for which Taurus stands.The esoteric view however, is that the circle represents the divine spirit, and the crescent above the flowering, or blossoming of spirit in that materialization process.Taurus is earthy, fixed and stubborn like the bull.


At this stage of manifestation the spirit enters the phase of duality.As thought reflects the subject-object expression of spirit, the twins become an apt symbol for the "division" of spirit, representing polarity.Within the material world or manifested state, all things oscillate between positive - negative, up - down, right - wrong, in - out etc.The two vertical lines represent male and female-as division.


The glyph of Cancer represents the breasts of a woman. The symbolism depicts the nurturing caring qualities of motherhood. In the same way, spiritually, all the creative and loving qualities are inculcated by the symbol - which signifies the womb of time, in which all manifestation takes place.


Leo, the 5th sign, represents creativity and childbirth too.The glyph looks somewhat like a sperm cell - the beginning of life.Within the seed is the creative power of life.The early writings depicted the glyph as representing the tail of a lion, which is the emblem of the constellation.


The Virgin represents Virgo.Its glyph is comprised of three vertical lines and another crossing and joining the uppermost portions.In early mythology the goddess of grain and food, Nidaba (Egypt) was represented by Virgo, but the spiritual symbolism is much deeper.


At the point of Libra, Spirit is established in its material expression and ready to ascend back to its original pristine state.The symbol of Libra is balance, indicative of the equation of matter versus spirit.It is the junction point of the world and that which is beyond.               


Though similar in shape to Virgo, the icon for Scorpio differs in that it has an arrow as an extension which points upwards.This upward energy describes the upward movement of the soul in its journey homeward, after the tremendous struggle in Libra.The sign of Scorpio is misunderstood if it is only regarded as death-for Scorpio signifies more the rebirth or regeneration of the being after the death of the ego.


The arrow at the end of Scorpio's glyph is now airborne and flying towards its destination is Sagittarius.The arrow points upwards, towards spiritual horizons.This ties in well with the meaning of Jupiter who is the ruler of this sign.The movement of an arrow is direct and Sagittarius too is a powerfully vital and spiritually directed energy.


The glyph of Capricorn is a complicated one and reveals the complexity of those born under its influence.Though Capricorn is a material sign, the emblem represents the influx of spiritual energy directed to material pursuits.


Though being an air sign-Aquarius has as its glyph the waters of life.The fluid design reveals the spiritual nature of Aquarius.It is often shown as a person pouring water from a pot.This indicates the brotherly, humane manifestation of spirit at this point.


The two semi circles are joined in the center together and represent the incoming and outgoing stages of evolution.Both are actually one and the same-being found to be the case only in the center-the Self.
