exploring the inner landscape

ccguac-deactivated20171020  asked:

Hey! I'm really interested in the relationship shared between the signs that share the same ruling planet, but I can't seem to find much information on it. Like what similarities and differences the two different signs (Virgo and Gemini for example) would have due to the common ruling planet influence and if those similarities and differences would make the signs more compatible or similar in their thought process etc! I was hoping you would please share your thoughts on the topic! thank you :)

The Sun rules Leo and exalts in Aries
Leo: “I am the King!” Leo is the resplendent exhibition of self expression. It’s God’s creative genius coming to life. Leo is born to lead and emanate the fabric that he has been sewn into. The whole world literally revolves around Leo, without the Sun we are nothing, Leo is equally as indispensable
Aries: Aries is fighting to form a personality, battling on behalf of his inner child for the right to flare and fire. Aries is the prince or princess who wants to rule. It’s the life quest to shine his inner sun.

Mercury rules Gemini and Virgo and exalts in Virgo
Gemini: Words! Language! I can talk! I can talk my head off and I can open your mind and release a Pandora’s box of quips into it and it will be delightful and dizzying. Geminis can read anything from gossip to scripture.
Virgo: But is this information correct? How valid is this knowledge and where can I apply it? Can my silence do the talking for me this time? It’s breaking down information like minerals and nutrients.

Moon rules Cancer and exalts in Taurus
Cancer: The moonlight mother, under the hostage of Luna’s waxing and waning, the Cancer has moon beads shining under his skin, he is the epicentre of new life and creating new tapestry. The female fertility principle
Taurus: Facilitates the new life of daisies and dandelions. Gives birth creatively, to sound, poetry, and architecture. The male fertility principle

Venus rules Libra and Taurus and exalts in Pisces
Taurus: This is a pure love of every sensual, sexual, and artistic form. It is an appreciation for love, life, and beauty. It is exquisite the form of a body, the taste of cherry chapstick, the sensation of massage oil
Libra: Everyone is God in human form to Libra, it is connecting, collaborating, socialisation, finding yourself in someone else, losing yourself into something deeper. Devoutly seeks partnership - marriage or otherwise
Pisces: Searches for a marriage with the Divine Source, wants to re ignite the love story between her and God. Because Pisces is all encompassing, the  frequency of love itself

Mars rules Aries and Scorpio exalts in Capricorn
Aries: Aries doesn’t contain his Mars, its like flashing lights - sparks from an electrical socket, the energy radiates from their pours and is
reflected in their restlessness
Scorpio: Internalizes and holds Mars like a battery. Energy caverns inward, the streams, volcanic eruptions, and confronting a battlefield within
Capricorn: Internally systemized Mars energy then directed externally, into tweaking surroundings and moving forward with worldly ambitions. I think
Capricorn equally distributes mentally and somatically..there is
resonant streams of high octane intensity in Capricorn that isnt erratic
and volatile

Jupiter rules Sagittarius and Piscesand exalts in Cancer
Sagittarius: The vision that extends beyond the horizon, a quest for the expansion of consciousness that lures the individual across land and sea, searching for meaning, wisdom, and personal experience. Searches for intimacy with the Source through nature, the universe, and learning
Pisces: Jupiter is the Piscean faith and belief. Jupiter is turned inward for spiritual pilgrimage. Idealism and vision. The lenses into the divine are enlarged and the hidden is magnified. This is how Pisces see, feel and hear  divinity in lucid perception.
Cancer: This is the exploration of the far inner landscape, traveling the amniotic fluids and valleys of the divine kingdom that rests inside. Can dwell within to find the spirit

Saturn rules Capricorn and Aquarius and exalts in Libra
Capricorn: Life is under the command of discipline, diligence, and duty. The voice of the critic is deafening inside the Capricorn mind, and there is little room for lethargy or half attempts
Aquarius: There is tremendous depth and perception in Aquarius. Limitation with personal acceptance of belief. Saturn is where traditional astrologers claimed Saturn “rejoiced” in masculine territory with moist air jubilation. Saturn gives Aquarius a pedantic mental state, a need to project ideas onto humanity
Libra: The sign of law and justice expresses fluidly in the planet of authority and establishment. Libra has  through every idea and perspective, and the decree of Saturn is wade through every factor and reach a conclusion based on rationality and fairness.

Introverted and Extroverted Types

Jung’s typology suggests two forms of archetypal expression. One is the introverted traits of the sign in question, the other being the extroverted qualities. The introvert tends to experience the rhythm of the sign on an intimate inner level and express the qualities internally. The extrovert will be energized by their surroundings and project the characteristics of the sign to the world.

Extroverted Aries: The personal experience of the unknown is a conquest the individual must uncover. The world is a place they can play, discover, and learn. The spirit is independent, free, and enthusiastic. Is easily bored
Introverted Aries: Seeks to wander through the inner landscape and spends a lot of time contemplating the self, actions, and complexes. Can self amuse alone easily

INFJ and Identity: Inner Landscapes

It is only in time alone that an INFJ can remember who they are.  In the normal bustle of life there are thousands of us, shattered pieces of a mirror, each reflecting a slightly different image in someone’s eyes.  We are parents, friends, mentors, customers, and unlike other types, each one of those roles is an instant identity, a full-fledged person of a moment.  Sometimes, we get lost in the myriad of people we feel required to be in our lives. We lose track of who we are because we are too busy being who everyone else needs.  It’s instinctive. We do it without thought.  And it leaves us feeling broken, hollow, alone, and strangely undefined.

Only in the silence, when we are allowed to explore our rich inner landscapes, can we truly remember who we are, not who others expect us to be. That is not an indication of shallowness. That is not a lack of a strong sense of identity or of defining principles.  That is an instinctive tendency to put aside the things we deem as merely about ourselves in favor of what see as the needs of others – and, in some cases, our survival.  We lose ourselves in the cacophony of expectations and needs, but we are never gone. An INFJ has an infinitely deep, complex sense of self.  Our inner world is often far richer than the so-called reality in which we operate. It is merely that few other people have the consideration or understanding to respect our need to spend time in that inner world, and we lack the selfish common sense to demand that time.

Perhaps the hardest thing is to preserve the time to find ourselves, to stretch out in silence and remember, without guilt, who we are and what things make us feel alive, only to be called back to who we are supposed to be.  As a teacher, I have the luxury of breaks between the semesters, and in those moments, I am able to relax, safe in the company of the spouse who completes me, and be myself.  I feel alive, whole.  And then I find myself facing a return to my job.  It is not that I do not enjoy my profession – I love it.  But I stand on the brink of a new semester and shudder, because I have gotten the chance to be me, and I know that I must put that away. I piece together the mirror and smile at myself, and then I step out before the crowd and it shatters again.

“We were psychedelic renegades exploring an inner landscape where everything was turned upside down. We had penetrated the looking glass and were living in a parallel dimension where everyone was beautiful and spiritually free. It was great to be young and completely out of our minds…” -Mick Rock
