Are Libra, Scorpio & Sagittarius Resilient?

Are Libra, Scorpio & Sagittarius Resilient?

Is Libra Resilient?

The Libran takes a very balanced and rational approach to life’s knocks. They aren’t given to angsty negativism and accept that life is somewhat chaotic, bad things do happen to good people and that the best thing to do with a set-back is to see what if anything might be learnt from it. Once the Libran has looked at what, if anything, they might need to do differently in the future; they will pick themselves up and move onwards and upwards.

Is Scorpio Resilient?

This sign is the Star sign associated with rising phoenix like from the ashes. Their resilient nature is the stuff of legends.

Is Sagittarius Resilient?

In keeping with their mutable nature, Sagittarians can adapt to most situations and are usually pretty resilient when it comes to change and set-backs.  They don’t tend to get emotionally involved or overly attached to people, situations and/or possessions so are not desperately trying to preserve the status quo. In fact they are likely to use the set-back as a perfect opportunity for overhauling their life and taking off elsewhere.

Should surprise themselves by discovering that they’d still like to accomplish their original goal they will usually come up with an off the wall way to get round anyone or anything that is set to get in their way!

Having a wide circle of friends also helps Sagittarius deal with life’s challenges.

Are Cancer, Leo & Virgo Resilient?

Are Cancer, Leo & Virgo Resilient?

Is Cancer Resilient?

Cancerians are both resilient and persistent when it comes to overcoming life’s challenges and set-backs especially if those challenges threaten their loved ones.  When it comes to relationships, Cancer will do their level best to keep their lover happy and their relationship going but this can lead to them suffering far more than they would if they just gave up and walked away. If the relationship does fail it will take the Cancerian a long time to recover and it will take some considerable time before the Cancerian runs the risk of being hurt again.

Is Leo Resilient?

Leo is very adept and bouncing back from life’s set-backs and returning to a set point of sunny optimism. Life’s too short for dwelling on the past, right? Like Aries, Leo isn’t into focussing on what went wrong and why; they’re far more interested in creating a bright shiny future full of all the wonderful things that life has to offer. If the set-back the Leo has just experienced involved losing face or status you get that the Lion will focus restoring the balance pronto. They may look for a creative way to achieve the objective that they were originally trying to achieve or they may turn their attention to another quest.

Is Virgo Resilient?

Virgo is resilient, pragmatic and realistic. They accept that there are times when life seems to be intent on throwing you a major curve ball and that the best strategy is not to get too het up about it. The wily Virgo takes the view that life is a learning exercise and that often we learn more from our failures than our successes.

Are Aries, Taurus & Gemini Resilient?

Are Aries, Taurus & Gemini Resilient?

Is Aries Resilient?

Aries is very resilient and can rise above most set-backs very quickly. Forward looking, the Ram tends to overcome set-backs by finding a new project or challenge to throw themselves into. This is great way of avoiding ruminating too much. The only downside to this approach is that Aries may not learn from their mistakes any go on to make those same mistakes over and over again.

Is Taurus Resilient?

Taurus is another extremely resilient sign and will work steadily to overcome most challenges. They are known for their strong will and ability to persevere in the face of considerable opposition. Like Aries, Taurus is not one to back down when it comes to achieving their ambitions. The Bull is well able to endure financial, physical and emotional hardship with tremendous stoicism.

Is Gemini Resilient?

In keeping with their mutable nature, Gemini can adapt to most situations and are usually pretty resilient when it comes to change and set-backs.  They don’t tend to get emotionally involved or overly attached to people, situations and/or possessions so are not desperately trying to preserve the status quo.

Having a wide circle of friends also helps Gemini deal with life’s challenges.

Balloon Roulette – Ditching The Ballast – Part 3 of 3

Balloon Roulette – Ditching The Ballast – Part 3 of 3

Imagine that that there are 12 people in a balloon, each one has a different sun sign. Now imagine that the balloon is losing height and that one person has to be sacrificed so that the balloon can regain enough height to clear a rather scary looking mountain. Who would Aries chuck out?  Who would Pisces push overboard? And who would each of the 12 signs leave to be the last man or woman standing, apart from themselves of course?

Sagittarius:

First to Go:  Cancer. What an over-sensitive wet blanket!

Last Man Standing: Aries. You trailblazing, gung-ho adventurers, you. You’ll probably have so much fun that you try to avoid being rescued so that this adventure never has to end.

Capricorn:

First to Go: Sagittarius – an irritating prat who does not see the gravity of the current situation.

Last Man Standing: Taurus. You two will already have worked out how to ensure that once rescued you can sell your heroic story for mega-bucks!

Aquarius:

First to Go:  Cancer. All those emotions … all that angst….bleuggghhhh!!!

Last Man Standing: Gemini – equally detached, intellectual and breezy. Less eccentric than you but who cares.

Pisces:

First to Go:  Sagittarius. What a nasty, oafish brute. How can they think that your emotional distress is funny? How very dare they make up a limerick about it. And it went viral!

Last Man Standing: Leo your knight in shining armour. You love a romantic hero to rescue you, even though you’re more than capable of looking after yourself, and Leo just loves to play the romantic hero. You just know that you and your dashing hero will be rescued- that much is blindingly obvious. Now, more importantly who will play you both in the blockbuster movie that’ll be made of the event? Could you do it yourselves??

Balloon Roulette – Ditching the Ballast – Part 2 of 3

Balloon Roulette – Ditching the Ballast – Part 2 of 3

Imagine that that there are 12 people in a balloon, each one has a different sun sign. Now imagine that the balloon is losing height and that one person has to be sacrificed so that the balloon can regain enough height to clear a rather scary looking mountain. Who would Aries chuck out?  Who would Pisces push overboard? And who would each of the 12 signs leave to be the last man or woman standing, apart from themselves of course?

Leo:

First To Go: Aries. There’s only room for one leader and it ain’t the Ram

Last Man Standing:  Libra. Genial, harmonious, good-looking and charming, just like you really. Not looking to be the leader, unlike you, so a match made in heaven. You might regret saving the Libran when the TV cameras arrive to film your rescue, though!

Virgo:

First to Go: All of them except for Scorpio as your constant nit-picking and criticism will wear them all down. Even the thick-skinned Sagittarius will jump out of the balloon to avoid listening to you drone on and on and on…. about how untidy, unsafe and everything else the balloon is. Cancer and Pisces will probably hang on for a considerable length of time as they like being depressed. However eventually even they will lose the will to live. Which leaves ….

Last Man Standing: Scorpio, who’ll hang on until the bitter end and then throw you out just as the rescuers arrive. That’ll teach you to upset Pisces and Cancer, won’t it?

Libra:

First to Go: Oh dear, decisions, decisions. It seems so unfair that anyone has to be pushed but if Cancer or Pisces don’t volunteer then you’ll have to select a victim. Who’ll it be? Probably Taurus, as they weigh the most and will probably eat all the supplies.

Last Man Standing: Leo. The dashing lion will look great on your arm when you do the rounds of the media after having been rescued.

Scorpio:

First to Go: Aries. There’s not enough room in a balloon basket for two power crazed Mars ruled signs.

Last Man Standing: Sagittarius. You’ll keep each other intrigued with your different approaches to answering that eternal question, “Why am I here?”  And I don’t mean – why are you in the balloon?

Who would Aries chuck out?  Who would Pisces push overboard? And who would each of the 12 signs leave to be the last man or woman standing, apart from themselves of course?

Aries

First to Go: Leo. There’s only room for one leader and the Leo would make an all to obvious challenge for the role.

Last Man Standing: Pisces. Pisces can be surprisingly resourceful when necessary and will also appear to be non-threatening. The Ram can happily imagine the Pisces gushing romantically about what a noble and brave warrior the Ram was and how thanks to Aries’ smarts and courage the fish was saved.

Taurus

First to Go: Sagittarius. The Archer is the only sign tactless enough to suggest that the heaviest thing in the balloon is the Taurus.

Last Man Standing: Capricorn. These two will already have worked out how to ensure that once rescued they can sell their heroic story for mega-bucks!

Gemini

First to Go: Virgo. Aaaargh the continual nit-picking does your head in!

Last Man Standing: Libra. A genial, smart and harmonious fellow Air sign, what’s not to like? Just think how well you two will come across on camera telling your epic tale.

Cancer

First to Go:  You’re almost self-sacrificing enough to jump out of the balloon yourself but couldn’t bear to leave your loved ones heartbroken. So… what do you do? Who do you throw out? Simples – that tactless Sagittarius who had the nerve to laugh when you were telling them your problems.

Last Man Standing: Scorpio. You’re frightened that if you don’t save them, they’ll come back to haunt you. However, you still wonder whether the Scorpio will chuck you overboard just for the hell of it!

New Year, New You. Cancer Birthday Resolutions

New Year, New You. Cancer 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 Cancer resolve to make the most of?

Cancer Birthday Resolutions.

Now what Birthday Resolutions might work well for family oriented and business savvy Cancer? Well a Cancerian might resolve to track down far flung family members, arrange a family get together or even research their family tree. They might decide that this is the year to propose or start a family. They might decide that this is the year to go for promotion or create their dream home. They might decide to open that restaurant, train to be a chef or open an antique shop. Cancerians are usually very entrepreneurial especially if their business involves nurturing others or a connection with the past.

One thing that can hold Cancerians back is fear of failure or of things going wrong. So one great Birthday Resolution might be to get to grips with any fears that are holding you back and accept that often fear is just False Evidence Appearing Real. Have a quick read of the earlier posts on Negative Bias to get things in perspective. Remember that you are both intuitive and shrewd so it is unlikely that you will misread a situation if you trust yourself enough to act on your hunches. This also applies to your dealings with other people and can help you find it easier to trust people.

Like Earth sign Taurus you would benefit from learning how to establish boundaries if you haven’t already done so and by taking steps to overcome shyness and develop mire self-confidence. Another resolution that would serve Cancerians well would be to commit to spending time with positive and uplifting people. You might also resolve to allow others to do a bit more pampering and looking after you for a change!

What’s Your Sin Sign?

What’s Your Sin Sign?

A slightly different blog post today as I’ve decided to take a quick look at which of the Seven Deadly Sins each Sun Sign is most and least likely to commit.

Currently the seven deadly sins are as follows:

Lust

Greed

Gluttony

Sloth

Envy

Pride

Wrath

During the 4th century misery or despondency was considered to be one of the 7 deadlies (as outlined by Evagrius Ponticus a 4th century monk) so I’ve resurrected this one as bonus sin. Dejection as a sin was replaced by sloth – the two possibly being related in terms of a person who was too down and dejected to get out of bed was seen as being idle.

Aries

Most Likely Sin

Ruled by Mars and, at your worst fuelled by aggression, I’d have to assign Wrath as the sin that you are most likely to commit. Though the Sign on the Ram is no stranger to Lust either.

Least Likely Sin

You don’t do Sloth nor are you likely to be miserable or despondent. You usually have a remarkable talent for bouncing back from setbacks.

Taurus

Most Likely Sin

This would be Gluttony for many of you, I’m afraid.

Least Likely Sin

Envy – you don’t envy anybody anything. If somebody else has something you want you use your desire for that thing to motivate you to take the actions needed to get it.

Gemini

Most Likely Sin

A tricky one this. Originally there was a vice associated with a lying tongue that would suit Gemini’s gossipy nature, however sticking with the modern deadlies I’d probably go for Wrath as you can have an evil temper at times.

Least Likely Sin

Sloth – you are far too active to be slothful

Cancer

Most Likely Sin

This is where I make use of our 8th deadly tristitia (despair or despondency) because Cancerians can have a tendency to get very, very down indeed.

Least Likely Sin

Wrath – you can be moody but you rarely have epic rages!

Leo

Most Likely Sin

Pride plus vanity – sins fit for a monarch.

Least Likely Sin

Envy – why would you envy others when you’re so much better than them, you wonder.

Virgo

Most Likely Sin

Pride. You’re proud of your detached, analytical and reasonable approach to life. ‘Why can’t the other sign’s keep a grip on their emotions and why are so many of them such slobs?’, you wonder.

Least Likely Sin

Sloth. Lazy people are an anathema to you, so why would you allow yourself to become one?

Libra

Most Likely Sin

Pride or rather vanity – you know you’re the most gorgeous person around. You also love getting other people to do your work for you, don’t you, so I’ll put sloth as well.

Least Likely Sin

Wrath – make love not war is your motto.

Scorpio

Most Likely Sin

You’ll commit all of them if you’ve decided to pursue being a sinner with your usual determination. In fact you might even invent a new hyper-sin where commit them all at the same time!

Least Likely Sin

You can be a saint or a sinner and will pursue either calling with equal vigour. If you’re feeling saintly you’ll ensure that you don’t commit any of the seven deadlies

Sagittarius

You’re larger than life and consume food with gusto, so I’ll put you down for gluttony with a side helping of greed.

Least Likely Sin

Wrath – you don’t really get angry. You don’t hold grudges. You’re more of a forgive and forget type of person really. You don’t do our 8th deadly tristitia (despair or despondency)either.

Capricorn

Most Likely Sin

Lust – lust for status, money, possessions, power and just plain lust when the mood takes you!

Least Likely Sin

Sloth – ‘Chance would be a fine thing’, I hear you say, ‘I’ve got far too much to do!’

Aquarius

Most Likely Sin

Pride – nobody is as clever, unique, forward thinking and humanitarian as you, are they?

Least Likely Sin

Envy.

Pisces

Most Likely Sin

This is where I make use of our 8th deadly tristitia (despair or despondency) again because Pisces can have a tendency to get very, very down indeed. Even worse than, cancer, in fact.

Least Likely Sin

Wrath. You get upset and you get deeply hurt but you don’t do explosive bouts of rage.
