Spirtuality Myths

I want to touch briefly on a very complicated subject,that of spirituality as seen in individual signs.

We tend to think the spiritual is apposed to the material world. Its that which is beyond the illusion of the body and the daily life,right? If so then the spiritual signs are the ones that transcend the illusion through intuition. Perhaps the ones that hold faith and devotion on a emotional and not rational level? I agree its true that some signs symbolize this type of ability. For example,water signs are considered to be more spiritual then others.

Pisces,Scorpio,Cancer are all more able to tap into the dream world. They are more emotional then the other signs and are ruled by feelings and passions. we will get back to the problem there later. Next,the earth signs are considered the most grounded in the “real world” so to speak. They see the world through the senses and the body and therefore they are seen as least spiritual. The fire signs come next-they are doers that want power. Air signs are somewhere in between for they are not ruled by the body or the heart,instead they have the mind to guide them. Of course this is all a very simplistic view but I’m sure many hold it without thought at times.

I would like to point out that this is all a complete myth! and ill explain why.

I believe no sign is better or worse but instead different. Everyone is spiritual,we all hold that spark inside but how we reach it in our lives is the difference. The water signs,those personalties that are “feelers” may indeed feel and receive daily little visions of something more.a world beyond even. But being so emotional they do not always even understand what they experience or feel. If anything such people are so sensitive that they become confused or agitated.

Sensitive people feel and know things but they are also get more easily unbalanced. So there is a strong tendency when young for sensitive people (symbolized by water signs) to shut themselves of. When this happens then all the spiritual or intuitive ability is asleep.

And that OK,it takes time to learn how to experience many feelings and deal with them in a healthy way. I would also like to point out that by closing themselves of,signs like Cancer tend to do less in the world. So no amount of wanting to make the world a better place is going to help. To make the world better-someone needs to do something and be out there to change it! And the dreamy Pisces isn’t going to do that. He would flow on into India or to the closest bar.

Air signs,though more rational and less inclined to be conservative and religious. Are at least more capable to holding on to morals and high ideals and doing something about them. The problem is they do tend to be skeptic and they like to argue too much. So the Gemini may argue about his ideals until he is bleeding but thats where it ends.   Another problem is that Air signs get bored very fast. What can be helpful is for them to have a community around them that holds their beliefs. In which case the Air signs will become great spiritual leaders of the group.

The fire signs,are surprisingly spiritual in a more conservative way. And they are more likely to do something even if their faith isn’t strong-they believe in a cause or a moral value. Their problem is they might not see the needs of others,in other words the ego is too strong. But that more then OK! they can channel that ego into action for the masses and leadership.

The earth signs are very practical and very sensual. They can experience spirituality through the material world and the body (think Tantra). They are also very loyal to their values to the point of stubborn. They have the ability to act but not burn out too fast and without needing a big audience. And through the senses they are connected to the real world and can channel the spiritual into the earthy reality around them!

I would like to finish this post with a song:

“Everyone is trying to get to the bar.
The name of the bar, the bar is called Heaven.
The band in Heaven plays my favorite song.
They play it once again, they play it all night long.

Heaven is a place where nothing ever happens.
Heaven is a place where nothing ever happens.”

-Talking Heads

Heaven isn’t a place with no sensuality,no earth or body-a place where nothing happens. Heaven is a struggle,an action and a dream. Its doing and building in the real world and making it a better place. And for that one has to use the tools:the body,mind and soul.

Eliza Doolittle – Sun in Aries

“While beating up on yesterday, I was on my rollerblades Rolling on moving on “-Rollerblades

“You gotta
“Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag
And bury them beneath the sea” -Pack Up

Aries, the first sign of the zodiac is a marvelous fire sign ruled by the planet mars. The Aries female (and male) are straightforward even blunt. They have a fire inside that rarely tires and say whats on their mind. As People of action and physical activity they must find paths that challenge them. They are a great deal of fun and energy but sometimes can offend when saying just what they think or by simply having no inhibitions or need for diplomacy. The female Aries is very sweet and sharp minded never is she  shy. The color red comes to mind as well and you must remember that only the Aries female can pull off a revealing outfit and own it,not even seeming undressed. Sadly, in love the Aries female is a little less lucky and happy. Why? maybe because her fire is too much for some or maybe because she isn’t interested in walking around the issue ,she is indeed very blunt. Then again an Aries can jump back fast from a breakup or any setback really. they don’t hold grudges and know how to keep working and going. they are optimists with great will power.

Eliza Doolittle, is almost a complete Aries according to her chart her sun, moon and mercury are in Aries! And indeed shes spunky, colorful and confident in her messages and yet sexy and far from shy.

The British singer  ( “Skinny Genes”) did strike me as an Aries rising but I thought she was a Leo, maybe because of the great curly hair…she does fit the Aries profile of sexiness. All signs are sexy but in different ways. Her music video for Rollerblades sums up the Aries kind of sexy. Its not J- Lo the sparkle of diva Leo or even Taylor Swift the romantic Sagittarius. But the girl on the bike with little shorts who has no trouble moving on and having some fun. But yeah still with the fire dignity that can be heartbreaking for the the boys. Now, Lady Gaga is an Aries as well but one affected by Pluto and thats a whole different kind of story.
