aries constantly faces the hurdle of the ‘me, me, me’ universe. This is the paradigm in which they exist. They must constantly defend their turf. be on the lookout for invaders. They are bold, daring, and even dangerous, but this is Aries’ greatest pitfall; not seeing beyond themselves.
— not growing up
it has been said that the Taurus Star Sign is somewhere stuck in the 7-14 age bracket. They are clever, nifty in terms of physicality, but have trouble seeing beyond a material world. Taurus can be intellectual and probing, but are often limited by a literal interpretation of things. The Bull has problems growing up.
— the allure of words
gemini’s love to talk, interact, communicate. This is what they are born to do. They are the facilitators, the talking heads, the best friend who talks to you at any time of Night; they love words & language! but this universe in which they dwell, full of language and linguistics only goes so far. Some things, after all, are ineffable. There is a magic beyond words 🙂
— creature comforts
cancer builds his shell, full of the comforts and allure of home. Its safe. Its snug. Its cozy. Its reliable, safe, and full of family. Its a truly loving environment. But creating this divide – my space here, yours there – cements the notion of THIS, and THE OTHER. Everyone insider the circle is my friend, everyone outside is a stranger. This division is an arbitrary one, for in the end, ALL IS ONE.
— constant attainments
leo seeks to shine and be recognised for the greatness. Nothing better than praise and recognition. After all, this is how Great they are. But there comes a time when one has achieved enough, succeeded enough, and the Constant Striving becomes a false call, and the rewards are no longer satisfying. At that stage, one can become the Inner Mystic. For Leos, this is a hurdle large indeed.
— constant judging
virgos are the master technicians of the Star Signs. They can diagnose, manipulate, control, and perfect almost any practice you can conceive of. They are discerning, they are factual, they are real perceiving. But the material world is only one aspect of existence. There are places that are not so susceptible to this ‘fact-based’ approach. And there, judgement and criticism is actually a negative. One needs suspend judgement at times.
I know almost nothing about Librans. I pass.
— integrating the underworld
Scorpios are masters of power and darkness; they go where others fear to tread. Dark imaginings, negative emotions, control. This is their domain. Theirs is the world of SHADOW. This aspect of our psyches is an omni-present one, but one that most of us choose not to deal with. Not the Scorpio. They live in this place of imaginals. Bravo to them. But integrating this Shadow with the world of Sunlight and Day can be difficult for them. It is their particular hurdle.
— sticking with things
Saggitarians are so brilliant, versatile, and adaptable they end up sabotaging themselves. There are so many avenues they can pursue, so many causes they can take up, so many banners they can fly, that they end up scattering their energies to the wind. Finding something, sticking to it, totally committing to the end; this is tough for Saggitarius to do.
so we come to my Sign 🙂 Capricorns love to work systems, put things in easy boxes. Probably why I came to write this article. But the world is never as simple or straightforward as the Capricorn would like it to be. They like clear definitions, clear delineations, but in the end things are fuzzy and blended. Capricorns need to loosen up, and learn to travel where the flow takes them.
— too much intellect
Aquarians are the geniuses of the Star Signs. They do things that leave the rest of us with gaping mouths. Bold leaps, quick deductions. They truly are the Wunderkind. But this brilliance often deludes them into thinking they always have the truth; I mean, they get so many other things right, they must get everything right, right? Not always so. The truth can be elusive; and the intellect may not be enough to grasp it.
— not being hard-assed enough
Pisces have a reputation for being push-overs and being wishy-washy. Like someone who is too meek, and doesn’t want to impose themselves. The Fish Sign has many admirable qualities (embracing, humanitarian, compassionate) but expressing themselves to a wider world can be difficult for them. They are all too willing to let others take charge, direct the show. But sometimes, you know, the Fish has to stand up for itself 🙂
just a few of my offhand observations
