Aries – Meaning and Info
Today we will begin to study the Signs of the Zodiac. In addition, here we need everything that we have already learned with you from previous lectures.
We have already spoken with you about the fact that signs are combined into groups according to different indicators, in particular – according to the elements, crosses, zones.
And having in common some of the indicators, representatives of different Signs are somewhat similar – all Fiery ones are active and passionate, Water Signs are sensual and deep, fixed inert, and mutable ones are changeable.
However, it is obvious that each Sign should have something very own, deeply personal, which distinguishes it from all others, even if they are related in groups.
In addition, these individual qualities are the Planets that form the Sign. What does form mean? This means that each of the Planets, which occupies a special position in this Sign (see below), in one way or another, transfers its qualities to this Sign.
Later, in the course “astropsychology” we will place a special emphasis on these Planets. We will analyze what needs to be corrected and how. For now, the rulers of the Sign are important to us in order to understand WHY the Sign has certain characteristics.
The word “potential” in this case should be understood literally. This is some quality that is inherent in the Sign a priori, it is active, it definitely wants to manifest itself, and it will definitely manifest itself.
However, HOW it will manifest itself at an early stage is completely unclear. Those. When dealing with Aries – the depositor of which is Mars, we have strength as a potential.
However, UNTIL, when a child is born, we do not know what this power will pour out into – into a person who can protect the weak, or into a person who can take away from the weak.
So far, only one thing is clear – man is strong. Elevator is a Planet, developing the principle of which, a vector is set for the development of the Depositor.
The oppose is the sore spot of the Sign. Quality that is extremely sensitive to external evaluation. As a rule, a feeling is created that the Sign does not have this quality, although in most cases, the most serious complex is associated with this Planet, which is masked by a hypertrophied manifestation of the depositor.
However, a person often gets so used to not noticing most sore spot that he really begins to think that everything is fine with the qualities of this planet. It can be very difficult to see yourself from the outside, to understand your gap.
Humbler – the qualities of this Planet are constantly “itching”, they want to manifest themselves, but the depositor diligently stamps them on. Most often, these qualities are suppressed by the manifestation of the depositor, although for some Signs, on the contrary, the “protrusion” of the humbler’s qualities is characteristic, so that no one would guess that in fact, the Native does not objectively dispose of them.
The good thing is that regardless of whether we crush the qualities of this Planet or not, the external environment, we will still constantly and annoyingly remind us that you do not have this quality! Show this quality! Show this quality, or it will be worse! Etc.
So far, this explanation seems complicated. However, when analyzing the Signs, you will be surprised at how simple and logical everything is.
Knowing these Planets, one can very deeply understand the symbolism of the Sign, and therefore of a person with a pronounced Sign.
In addition, most importantly, you can understand what to do if you or your loved one is a pronounced representative of this or that Sign.
Before proceeding with the description of the Signs, I would like to immediately remind you that we are studying astrology, which means that we do not initially set ourselves the task of describing by the Sign or by the cross, or by the Planet or by some other SINGLE indicator YOU PERSONALLY !!! !
In order to describe a specific person, we need a specific map, with all the necessary data. So far, we are engaged in stringing another bead on the thread of our future lace necklace called “individual horoscope”. No more.
