Let’s start this writing off by saying that every single person has a gift they can offer to the world. Individuals have chosen to come and live during this time in society and so because of that, each person has a part to play in the evolution of the world. We each come with our own signatures – our Sun Sign in our personal natal chart.
Our Sun sign is the sign that the Sun was traversing at the moment we took our first breath. Our Sun sign is generally not who others see us as but rather who we truly are at the very core of us. It is actually the person we are when we are alone. But it speaks loudly to the personality we bring to the table called ‘Life!’
ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
Aries people are the first ones out of the game when offered an opportunity. They are the first Fire sign in the zodiac and so will often lead the way for others to follow. Their ruling planet is Mars – the God of War and of aggression. Not that Aries are overly aggressive individuals but they do manage to get things done! (At least at the very beginning – until the next new option or toy comes along.) Aries’ gift to the world is to make a leap of faith… to say that just because you don’t necessarily see an ‘end goal’ to something, make that leap anyway. It will at least land you somewhere!
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus people are the first Earth sign in the zodiac. Their gift is to teach us about being grounded. They are very attracted to ‘nice things’ so they teach us that if you want something specific, it is worth working for. You deserve the finest of leather products or the savoring of the richness of nice food. Don’t sell out on cheap products is their gig. Taurus teaches us to not spend frivolously but instead to allow for the sensuousness of the feel of the finery and the fact that you indeed do deserve the best!
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini’s, being the first Air sign, teaches us you can multi-task. Why just settle for one option when there is a possibility of getting 2 out of 3, versus simply getting 1! Geminis also teach us that using the power of communication is one of the most intriguing parts of the personality. They always have a plan and they tell us to talk our way through the plan – be cooperative – but to have others see our way! Gemini’s teach us: if at first plan #1 doesn’t work, then we are mutable enough to open the door to plan #2. Don’t give up – there is always an answer!
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer teaches us that our home can be our palace. One can always retreat to one’s place of safety. Cancerians teach us that the way to serve others in time of need is to offer to make them a meal! Cancerians teach us about caring for others, and that one doesn’t have to be a blood relative to give others comfort. Loving and kindness are the gifts Cancerians offer.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
Leo teaches us to see things through the eyes of color. They may wear some black and white but color is the key! And the brighter the better! Leo is the second Fire sign in the zodiac, so they teach us about having passion… to be open to romantic love! They teach us that hearts and flowers are one of the greatest things in life! So, Leo’s gift is to offer beauty – to open the eyes to behold the beauty that lies within.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo wants to teach us that nobody ever died from hard work! Anything worth working for is worth putting in the hours. Their attention to detail is extraordinary and if they are interested in something (or someone), then it is worth taking note of every single detail – nothing is too small to ignore.
Libra (September 23 – October 23)
Librans teach us about Balance and Harmony. Their gift to us is to remind us that even though the world outside may be in chaos, there is still a way to maintain peace and harmony within the individual Soul. Libra’s gift is also surrounding relationships as they have learned that if anyone around them is out-of-harmony, this too can challenge their personal peace within. So Librans teach us: Let’s ALL live in peace – there is no need for strife. This may appear to be idealized but it is a probability this can indeed happen if we all play nice together!
Scorpio (October 24 – November 21)
Scorpio’s gift is to teach us all to be somewhat mysterious. Have a little mystery in your life. Don’t lay all your cards on the table at one time – that is NOT how a game is won. Allow people to wonder what you are up to… don’t just give it all away! Scorpios also teach us to do a bit of background research on all things. Don’t take everything at face value; instead do a little digging on your own. You may be overly surprised at what you would find out!
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius is the last Fire sign in the zodiac but it never considers itself ‘last’ in anything. It totally wants to be a part of the whole situation. And the greatest gift that Sagittarius brings to the table is to ask us to laugh, find joy, and have fun. Sagittarius loves to be free to dance so their gift is… swing your arms, stride like you own the world, and dance when you get a chance. Life is too short to be sooo serious!
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorn’s gift is to teach us about being serious when we need to be serious. Fun has its time and place but there is a time when it’s important to make a far-fetching plan, especially financial. Don’t get me wrong, Capricorns also love to have fun BUT the practical side of life has to be taken care of first. So they teach us that there is a time and a place for everything! When the financial, serious day-to-day operations are taken care of, then let’s break out the fun!
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius’s gift is to teach us that we can be whomever we want to be. Society does set rules. Society does tell us “suggestions” but that doesn’t mean we can’t come up with another plan all on our own. Aquarius often shows that some rules are simply meant to be broken. That to continue to evolve in life means we have to change yesterday’s standards and that living by yesterday’s rules doesn’t allow for change. Aquarius’s gift is to allow us to see that change is inevitable – it doesn’t have to have a scary component.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces’ gift is to teach us to be dreamers! Their gift teaches us that no great inventions have ever come about without being someone’s dream first. That the realm of our existence is only as tight as our mind can perceive. Their gift also teaches us that music and art bring a whole new dimension to life that is there for exploring. We all have our unique style of art and design within us – be okay to dig deep and make it a reality!
