Women is...: The Sun Signs: AQUARIUS, PISCES


AQUARIUS, the Water Bearer
Ruled by shocking Uranus, Aquarius very much epitomizes the planet that inspires it. This sign has astonishing intellectual and communication skill. Aquarius may be the sign of the rugged individualist, the mad scientist and the lone eccentric, but this visionary also represents social interaction and higher consciousness. Aquarius's title, the "Humanitarian of the Zodiac," is well earned! For a fixed sign, Aquarius has a lot of adaptability. Attribute this to the need to accommodate others. A passion for life, new things, and novel situations sends Aquarius in all directions!

Without stability and a willingness to listen, however, this sign can become erratic. Aquarius can try many new things but end up mastering none. That can stifle the great success potential here. Slowing down long enough to establish a solid foundation gives Aquarius the ability to ground his or her electrical energy. Receptivity can calm rebellious tendencies, especially those that put a member of this sign at cross-purposes with his or her boss! Aquarius's future-oriented energies give all members of this sign the advantage of living as if they are well into the 25th century!

PISCES, the Fishes
Pisces is a Water element, ruled by mystical Neptune! This sign is extremely receptive, nurturing, compassionate, and other-directed. As with Scorpio, we have to explore and probe to find out the depths of this water. Pisces feelings run very, very deep. A mutable nature endows Pisces with adaptable and unifying energy. These sensitive people are like the water that flows gently downstream, around the rocks and obstacles in its path. Pisces receptivity can translate into psychic energy. Pisces knows all and sees all but probably won't tell all. The Fishes keep the secrets of the universe within and to themselves.

Without balance, Pisces can sink into the whirlpool of emotion. This can bring out hidden fears and insecurities. Lack of ego strength can make Pisces feel dependent and helpless. Then they can fall into the martyr trap. Pisces benefit by truthfully sharing their own difficulties, feelings, and need. They need to remember that they, too, have the right to receive all the help and support they are so used to giving! A happy, confident Pisces brightens the world and all our lives.

brings a need for independence. Aries coincides with springtime, when seeds germinate in an outpouring of energy and growth. This sign has an instinctive identity, early extroversion, spontaneity, and a very direct approach.

"Fire" can rage out of control. Aries's cardinal-sign assertiveness can become too willful. Then we have wild spring weather � a storming nature and a passion for power. Spontaneity can become impulsive � as only a sign ruled by energizing Mars can be! Balance comes by adding gentleness to independence and by tempering the Self with self-awareness.

TAURUS, the Bull
The Earth element of Taurus brings strength and the desire for solid ground, form and structure. Preservation is important. The Bull's fixed motivation seeks first to stabilize, then produce. Ruled by loving Venus, Taurus has great emotional depth. Friends and lovers rely on the warmth and emotional accessibility of this sign. Taurus represents consistency, loyalty and patience.

Fixed earth can be very rigid, too cautious to take some of the risks necessary in life. Sometimes the Bull ends up temporarily stuck in the mud. He or she may not want to rise to every challenge or potential. And stubborn? Ah yes! The Taurus Bull may always surface. This sign's Yin energy can go too far; Taurus becomes very, very passive � even lazy. Balance comes with a reliable plan, one that satisfies Taurus's need for stability while allowing for action and accomplishments.
