Does Virgo live in the past, present or future?

Does Virgo live in the past, present or future?

Virgo is not known for living in the past but are they always striving for future perfect? Not really, no – they are striving for present perfect. For Virgo the leitmotif is kaizen – continuous improvement. What Virgo is aiming to improve is the present including their present performance and the present is where Virgo focuses most of their attention.

Virgos are legendary for their powers of analysis but what they analyse for the most part is the immediate present. ‘What needs to be done NOW?’ thinks Virgo. When Virgo reaches out to help somebody they are focussed on what immediate help they can provide. What can they do to help NOW. When they are with a partner they are analysing a partner’s present reactions and working out what that means and where the partner fits into Virgo’s life. Is the partner what Virgo is looking for? There is an element of forward focus in this as Virgo will also be working out whether the partner or potential partner is appropriate for the Virgo long term. If the partner isn’t Virgo can let go pretty easily and this is helped by the Virgoan tendency to focus on the present and to a lesser degree the future. They do not dwell on past memories of happy times together when about to ditch a former long-term partner. Having made the decision Virgo will do what needs to be done in order to disengage with minimal emotional fall out and focus on other present events that do not cause the Virgo’s attention to be pulled backwards in time.

Does Leo live in the past, present or future?

Does Leo live in the past, present or future?

Like fellow Fire sign Aries, Leo is more focused on the present than the past (unless they are reliving past glories) or the future. That is not to say that Leo lives soley in the present – they are, like fellow fixed sign Taurus, a planner and to do that you need to project forward into the unborn future but for the most part that is as far as Leo’s forays into the future go.

Like Aries, Leo is keen on living life to the full and grabbing any opportunities for advancement and enjoyment; and to do that you have to be aware of what is happening around you. In common with Sagittarius and Aries, Leo prefers instant gratification to pleasure deferred, which again fits in with a sign that primarily lives in the present. Leo’s ability to commit to a course of action and stick with it suggests that the sign does allow their past to influence both their present and their future in terms of allowing a past decision to shape future events. As Leo does not always revisit their decision and will often repeat behaviour when it is no longer appropriate, just because it worked in the past, the can on occasion be accused of living in the past. Leo may also live in the past if they were more successful in the past than they currently are. They will expect to be treated as if they are still as successful as they were at their peak. They will also be plotting their way back to the top.

When it comes to relationships Leo can also show a tendency to live in the past by keeping their ex hanging around, and thus not allowing either party to move on. This tendency diminishes with the passage of time as Leo starts to spend more time with the people who are part of their present life rather than being part of the fabric of their past.

Does Cancer live in the past, present or future?

Does Cancer live in the past, present or future?

Cancer is the sign most associated with living in the past but whether they really spend too much of their time dwelling on past events depends on happy and secure they feel in the present. If the Cancerian is feeling loved and safe they will focus their attention on the present and those loved ones who surround them. If, however, the Cancer is unhappy with their present circumstances they will either hark back to time when things were going well or they may rerun sad past events over and over until they fear that no matter what they do nothing will ever be right.

There is a saying, which I believe was coined by Ed Seykota that says that “energy flows where attention goes” in the case of the Cancerian or any other water sign it would be appropriate to modify that statement slightly and say that “energy flows where emotion goes”. In short Cancer is pulled back to the present or into the past by their emotions. If past events have more emotional resonance for the Cancer than present ones then they will focus on the past.

Notice I have said little about whether the Cancer lives in the future, this is because unless there is a big emotional pull towards the future e.g. a family wedding coming up then the Cancerian is unlikely to dwell on the future. Why is this? It is partly because the Cancer likes security and predictability. The Cancer’s past is as predictable as can be as it’s already happened, and the present is more secure and predictable than the future.

Does Gemini live in the past, present or future?

Does Gemini live in the past, present or future?

Gemini has little time for the past. ‘The past, that was lifetime ago’, think the Twins. They are not known for projecting too far into the future either other than to look forward to an upcoming party, weekend away or other treat.

Gemini is very much focussed on the present as befits an impulsive sign, who is into immediate gratification. Hanging around, waiting for that long term payoff is not for the Twins! Life is too short for that and there are far too many interesting distractions around to catch the Twin’s attention. Gemini’s keen interest in exploring new horizons (and low boredom threshold) is one of the reasons why the Twins can happily turn their back on a course of action that is just about to pay off and abandon it for something totally different (thereby allowing an observant Taurus or Capricorn to do profit for taking things to the next level).

One personality trait that ensures that the Twins remain focussed on the present is their ability to connect with and collect interesting, stimulating people. When you are surrounded by fascinating folk you are unlikely to drift off down memory lane or to daydream about the future.

New Year, New You. Pisces Birthday Resolutions

New Year, New You. Pisces Birthday Resolutions 

Astrologically the best time to make your New Year’s Resolutions isn’t New Year’s Day as many of us understand it. It is our own New Year’s Day; the day when the Sun returns to the place that it was at the time of our birth otherwise known as our birthday. This is a time when many of us do review what we have done to date and make a commitment to ourselves that (if things are not as we wish them to be) this year will be different. On our birthday we often decide how we want things be in the coming year and if we choose to make a resolution to accomplish something we are more likely to succeed than if we make a resolution at a time that has less personal significance for us.

Now when it comes to making birthday resolutions we are more likely to be successful if we pick resolutions that fit in with who really are as opposed to going for one that we think we ‘should’ make.

Why not resolve to become more like to like your Sun sign? Why not pick a few of those wonderful Sun sign strengths and character traits that you have waiting for you to develop, and develop some of them further? Why not play to your strengths and make some resolutions and goals that you will make you feel fulfilled when you hit them? How do I know that you will feel fulfilled when you become more like your Sun sign? Take a look at the blog manifesto for the answer to that one!

Developing your Sun sign strengths will make for more lasting results than trying to stick to a New Year’s resolution that is at odds with you really are. Let’s face it Aries is going to find sticking to a resolution to be less impatient much harder than resolving to be more assertive or to set up their own business. That’s not to say that developing your Sun sign strengths is always going to be easy, sometimes it will be rather challenging, but the results will be both satisfying and long lasting.

So with this in mind I am making a few Birthday Resolution suggestions based on your Sun sign. There is one Bithday Resolution suggestion that applies to all the Sun signs and that’s to love your Sun sign. Be proud to be a member of Team Aries, Team Taurus, Team Gemini, Team Cancer, Team Leo, Team Virgo, Team Libra, Team Scorpio, Team Sagittarius, Team Capricorn, Team Aquarius or Team Pisces. Have a look at some of the forums that are devoted to one specific Sun sign in order to connect with people who are the same Sun sign as you. Find out what makes them (and you) fabulous!

Rather than suggest you make Birthday Resolutions to deal with your Sun sign’s negative traits I’m going to suggest that you make New Year’s Resolutions that will bring out your Sun sign’s positive traits. The more you express those the less likely you are to express those nuisance negative traits that hold you back.

So what talents and traits might Pisces resolve to make the most of?

Pisces Birthday Resolutions

Now what Birthday Resolutions might suit a caring, compassionate Pisces? Well, I won’t be suggesting that you resolve to go with the flow as most of you do that, though a rigid Pisces might like to learn to get relaxed about change in order to express their true Pisces nature.

A Piscean without a creative outlet is like a fish out of water so if your creativity is stifled at work find ways to unleash it in other areas of your life. Make A Birthday Resolution to learn to dance, attend a New Age retreat, learn about aromatherapy, take up photography or anything else that allows your creative and spiritual nature to express itself.

Another sensible Birthday Resolution might be to become comfortable with setting boundaries so that you tell people what you will and will not tolerate and when you need time to recharge your batteries.

Some Pisceans can be rather gullible so make it a Birthday Resolution to develop your intuition and ability to read people in order to avoid being taken advantage of. Your ability to read people is impressive so instead of blithely ignoring those warning bells you get tune into them and take time out before reaching a decision.

Like fellow Jupiter ruled sign, Sagittarius, you think time is elastic, so can find yourself always running late, so a Birthday Resolution to develop some time management skills might be useful.

You can be a little irresponsible when it comes to money, so shadow a Capricorn, Virgo or Scorpio friend for a day to learn and model their financial skills, you might also use them as a role model when it comes to time management.

Other Birthday Resolutions that you might care to explore are ensuring that you get enough fun into your life and making sure that you spend plenty of time with positive people. There are tips on becoming more positive in my AstroCoaching for Pisces book and in my recent blog posts on dealing with negative bias. You might also like to take a look at my posts on How to Stop Blaming Yourself for Everything in order to combat the Pisces tendency to do just this.

Does Taurus live in the past, present or future?

Does Taurus live in the past, present or future?

Taurus always has their eyes fixed firmly on the future while living in the present. While the Taurean is regarded as having plenty of respect for convention and traditions this does not mean that they look back or are nostalgic for times gone by. They are more likely to revisiting their past to learn from their failures and successes and to take stock of how far they’ve come.

Taurus tends to live in the present fully enjoying the life that they have created. This is especially true if the Taurean has accomplished all that they wished to – if they have risen as far up the corporate ladder as they desire for example. Until Taurus has made their life conform to their desires they will be very future focussed as they plot the route forward to where they want to be.

Projecting forward into the future in this manner does not mean that Taurus will lose sight of the present. Far from it. Taurus will be fully engaged by their present circumstances as they meticulously carry out those actions that will propel them forward to where they wish to be. Once there, they will relax and enjoy the results of all that planning and persistence. Others might wonder why the ambitious Bull has suddenly chosen to go no further but the Taurus has their reasons and those will be well considered ones.

Taurus may dwell on a long lost love or mourn a much loved family member. They might also dwell on love a love affair that ended badly. However the Taurus will keep these visits down memory lane relatively brief.

Does Aries live in the past, present or future?

Does Aries live in the past, present or future?

Aries does not dwell in the past, that’s for sure, but do they spend most of their time living in the present or projecting forward into the future? While Aries is a pioneer and has big ambitions for the future, they do not spend much of their time projecting forward. If they did they would be keener on seeing projects through than their reputation suggests. Aries is an adventurer and an initiator who is not known for sticking around to see the job finished. As soon as a course of action loses its excitement and sense of urgency the Ram hands it over to a different type of Zodiac personality.

Aries is very much focussed on the present as befits an impulsive sign, who is into immediate gratification. Hanging around, waiting for that long term payoff is not for Aries! Life is too short for that and there are far too many interesting distractions around to catch the Ram’s attention. Aries’ keen interest in exploring new horizons is one of the reasons why the Ram can happily turn their back on a course of action that is just about to pay off and abandon it for something totally different (thereby allowing an observant Taurus or Capricorn to do profit for taking things to the next level).

Living in the present can also cause the Aries to act without thinking and alienate those whose support they seek. There are, however, plenty of advantages to living in the present – you are unlikely to find an Aries who dreads the future or is eaten up with regret over a lost love for example!
