Challenges given to Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)
Frequent experiences with people who are antagonistic and disrespectful, consistent threats and intrusions to personal space, and circumstances where they are forced into defending and asserting themselves. They can feel restricted or unable to truly demonstrate their softer and more sentimental points and often sense that people therefore don’t recognise these qualities in them
Restrictions others have enforced and the standards they are measured by that belong to limitation
The re-experiencing of betrayal, heartbreak, deceit, and vilification that generates the anger that rests on their natural baseline. This is the rage and the heat they are called to tame and rise from (creatively, self-actualising, sexually) rather than internalise or squander in a single explosion
Challenges given to Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)
Sudden implosions to personal security in the form of abrupt location change, break up, or employment that dually threaten their internal structures and the constants they rely upon
Being enclosed by others and trying to build upon and make do in a small space, negotiating frequent intrusion and over-reliance by other people who may begin to use the individual as a resource. This is when they have the opportunity to self-reflect on their own needs and the knowledge that their single-minded pursuits are ultimately beneficial for everybody
Constant and repetitive inconveniences, mix ups, breakdowns, surprise expenses, injuries that impair proficiency rarely caused by the individual
Being forced to work alongside or with incompetency and playing the improvised supervisor, instructor, and problem solver
Challenges given to Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)
Frequent earth bound problems reoccurring to test and exercise their logic and judgement, often caused by their episodes of absent mindedness
Being enclosed by a regulated and confined education system that may have been to slow or under stimulating to engage in or demonstrate their intellect and there is an ongoing fight ever after to vindicate the mind
Lack of material stability, continuity, and frequent troubles with transport and mobility that re focuses the development of wealth and capital into relationships, knowledge, and learning
The loss of love and friendships that re-reveal the transparent emptiness
Challenges given to Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)
Being forced to adjust to their earth bound demands while adhering to deeper and more spiritual, emotional, and connective responsibilities
Frequent experiences with people who are invalidating, emotionally immature, or mirrors of the past that provoke their own extreme emotional state to develop internal regulation, emotional clarity, self-awareness, and empathy
Regular intervals of social exclusion that provide the opportunity to self-reflect and acknowledge the emotions, sensations, and thoughts that belong to them and not other people
Having their altruism, favours, or good deeds for other people depended upon, exploited, or manipulated where they are then forced to contemplate if their best option is to absolve these qualities and stop caring, but therein they also lose a part of themselves
AQUARIUS:I am like a bird that soars through the sky. Everything I have depends on how far my freedom will allow me to travel. I don’t follow the laws of gravity. Home is where I make it, ever changing, never restricted to one place at one time. I migrate to the warm promise of tomorrow, every day offering something new to explore.
PISCES:I am like the current, flowing from place to place. Pushed and shoved, flooded and drained. I feel every ripple of every rock that’s ever been thrown, every breeze that’s moved me and storm that’s destroyed me. I am pure, I run deep, I am full of healing. I am truly needed. I’m doing my best not to lose myself in the tide.
ARIES: I am like a flame, quick to ignite, even quicker to fizz out. I am what people turn to in moments of darkness. I am the first responder, feared but needed, seen from miles away. I am the torch that lights the way for those to follow. I spend my whole life walking on the edge of what may send me into fire. I must be aware of what I burn along the way.
TAURUS: I am like a flower, bound to the earth, on a slow and steady journey. I am affected by everything, but changed by nothing. I bloom even when destruction surrounds me. I am there for the birds and the bees and the bugs, seemingly delicate, but truly stubborn to my core– fulfilling a patient and promising destiny to fill the earth with beauty.
GEMINI: I am like the wind, never quite obtainable, an abstract motion of change. I am constantly evolving, from cold to warm, weak to strong, picking up everything along the way. I can be subtle, but I am capable of a storm. I am free, a part of something much larger than I know. I am a force that makes my own rules, felt by anyone who crosses the path I travel.
CANCER:I am like the moon. I go through phases, and my soul moves in cyclic motion, from here, to there, to back here once again. I am loyal to the core, rising every night just on time. I am a child of the night, vulnerable to any sound or ray of light. I am a quiet safe haven, a mother to the stars who seek shelter in my arms.
LEO: I am like the sun, the guardian of the light, a force larger than life. I am adored, prayed for, and relied on. I radiate beyond my own reach and the world can feel it. I am an ever-glowing force that will be the first to rise. I’m devoted towards promising a new day. I want to see the way you look with my rays glowing against your face.
VIRGO:I am like a tree.I’ve grown everything I have. I am on a long and patient journey. I am solid to the core, grounded to what I know and what I’ve ever only known. I have seen it all, my changes are slow and subtle, my branches flexible, but stable, and capable of withstanding the force of what surrounds me. I am a lifelong observer to the changing world around me.
LIBRA:I am like the sky.Never day for too long, never night for too long either. I have mastered the perfect balance between the two. I can be found in the beauty when the sun sets and the clouds collide. And the perfect moments when you gaze into my eyes and wonder where I came from. I am the vast and romantic abyss inviting you to dream, wish upon, and fall deeply into.
SCORPIO:I am like the waves that push against the sand. I am a reflection of the current that is thrown to me, and I will respond a force that is persistent and pussiant. I can be consuming, I take what I need, I leave a mark on the shore, and I am hard to resist. I reveal a deeper sea that encompasses all that I am, and all that I can be.
SAGITTARIUS:I am like the heat, I thrive in moments of speed, chaos, and explosion. I am magnetic, others are drawn to the warmth I give off, and the trail I leave when I circulate the sky. I am the steam that engulfs the air and the lava that devours anyone in its reach. I am on a quest to conquer something greater.
CAPRICORN: I am like the roots of plants who live beyond the earth. I am what I am because I’ve learned this way of life, and I’ve earned it. I am sheltered from the surface world, and I operate on my own clock. I am devoted to where I came from, and the conditions of the world that’s made me that way. I am obligated to myself, to my journey, to my own way of life.
