People often ask how to best make sense of all this…  For example “reading the latest Libra-Aries article, if I’m not a Libra is this still relevant to me?”  Or what if I have Libra Ascendant? Or Libra Sun or Moon?

Soul Astrology is the Astrology of our inner world. When we understand our Astrological (natal) chart, from a Soul-centered perspective, it can give our life purpose, and meaning.

To work with Soul Astrology as an effective tool for understanding your life and soul purpose you first need to know at least three things:

Your Ascendant, Your Sun Sign and Your Moon Sign.  (If you don’t know these, email your date, time and location of birth to ruth@SoulAstrologyWithRuth.com and I’ll tell you.)  Next you’ll need to understand how they relate to you, and to each other. This is outlined below.

Your Soul Sign – the Ascendant
The Ascendant is your Soul Sign and the potential for your highest expression. In this lifetime.  It is the most important sign in Soul Astrology.

Your Soul Sign indicates your innate core essence. The essence of who you really are. But this will remain latent while you are identified with, and driven by, the needs of the personality.

Our spiritual development involves realizing this core energy and expressing it into the world. Becoming a fully Soul-centered individual.

A Fully Integrated Individual
A fully Soul_Centered individual is fully integrated*. This means they have integrated their Soul and Personality and can access and fully express the highest octave of each sign. They will no longer experience polarity, so they can express the highest octave of Aries-Libra, Taurus-Scorpio, Gemini-Sagittarius, and so forth. Read about the Soul Purpose of all twelve signs HERE.

Your Personality Signs
Like the black and white yin/yang symbol, your personality has two sides. One which is in the light, so you are aware of it, the other is hidden, so you are less aware, if at all.

In Soul Astrology these two aspects of your personality are represented by your Sun and Moon Signs.

Your Sun Sign
This is one half of your personality: the part that you are aware of because it is in the light. It is your ‘modus operandi’ (MO), your main way of perceiving the world and navigating your way through it.

For example:

Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius), your default position will be thinking your way through life;
Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) will feel your way forward;
Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) will focus on action and
Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) will want all the practicalities organized and the physical infrastructures in place.

Your Moon Sign
This is the other half of your personality. It is your shadow, or the side of your personality that is most difficult for you to see because it is in the dark. Until you do some personal and spiritual development, this will be your blind spot.

However, it is who we become in relationship. It is our emotional ‘MO’, so in terms of how you relate with, and experience others, emotionally, your experience will be influenced largely by your Moon sign. It is your emotional world, and it is revealed to you through your relationships with others.

You can already see the combinations of personality types that are possible. For example if your Sun is Gemini and Moon is Cancer, your ‘MO’ will be thinking/feeling. You will basically be a thinking/feeling type. The combinations are many depending upon the various Sun/Moon signs, such as thinking/thinking; thinking/feeling; thinking/action; thinking/practical, or feeling/thinking; feeling/feeling, feeling/action, practical/action and so forth. You get the idea.

Take a moment now, to identify your personality type, simply based on your Sun/Moon sign. As mentioned above, this is how you mainly operate out in the world, and in your relationships, and it is learned behavior.

To find out what wants to be expressed in the world through you, you need to now look deeply at your Soul Sign. This is your light, that wants to shine!

Read about the Soul Purpose of your Rising Sign HERE

If you reflect back over your life, you will see how the light of your Soul (Your Rising Sign) has always been shining through the ‘lens’ of your personality (Sun and Moon signs).

Pisces Rising: The Pisces Soul

Johfra-Bosschart-Pisces

Artwork: Pisces by Johfra Bosschart

As we complete our journey around the Zodiac exploring the love-based expressions and fear-based reactions of the twelve signs, we finally arrive at the magnificent and mysterious twelfth sign of Pisces: the sign of the Sacred Heart.

The sign of Pisces is associated with escapism, suffering, retreats, religious orders, prisons, everything illusory and glamorous: photography, the movie industry, and… oceanic consciousness, devotion, and Universal Love.

To understand the mysteries of this seemingly contradictory sign, we need to understand what is sometimes known as the ‘veil’ of our illusion: how it is our illusion that causes suffering, and how ‘disillusionment’ or ‘seeing reality as it truly is’ can be an end to suffering and lead to the Sacred Heart opening of Humanity…

- at the end of the video I give additional commentary sharing a deeper explanation of Pisces from an esoteric perspective – enjoy!

Aquarius Rising: The Aquarian Soul

Aquarius Rising: The Aquarian Soul

As we continue our journey exploring the fear-based reactions and love-based expressions of the twelve zodiac signs we arrive at the enigmatic sign of Aquarius…

The sign of Aquarius is associated with science, technology, innovations, gadgets, individuality, uniqueness, the new age, humanitarian ideals and group consciousness. As the sign of the water carrier many people mistakenly believe that Aquarius is a water sign, yet if this were the case we would see much more emotion from our often cool, aloof and detached Aquarian friends. While water signs are about mastering emotions, air signs are about mastering the mind, and as the fixed air sign Aquarius is all about the mind. Aquarius’ concern about…

Capricorn Rising: The Capricorn Soul

Johfra-Bosschart-Capricorn

Capricorn, by Johfra. http://johfraposters.com

Capricorn Rising: The Capricorn Soul

As we continue our journey exploring the fear-based reactions and love-based expressions of the twelve zodiac signs we arrive at the deeply mysterious sign of Capricorn.

Capricorn is associated with achievement, practical application, method, ambition, material resources, finances, government, initiation and discipleship. Esoterically it is said that the spiritual ‘goal’ is identified in Sagittarius and then in Capricorn we choose to walk the path. The highest soul purpose of Capricorn is ‘to create heaven on Earth’ and it is no accident that we celebrate Christmas and the birth of the Christ during Capricorn season.

The words ‘discipline’ and ‘disciple’ both have their origin in the Latin verb discere which simply means to learn. So if Sagittarius has identified the spiritual goal, Capricorn’s job is learning how to get there. The whole idea of ‘discipleship’ implies that there is a practical methodology to achieve a tangible result. Through our soul’s experience in Capricorn we learn to build a very real “stairway to heaven”…

IMPORTANT – at the end of the video I add extra commentary about esoteric astrology and explain why Capricorn is considered to be THE most mysterious of all twelve zodiac signs!

Sagittarius Rising: The Sagittarius Soul

Johfra-Bosschart-Sagittarius.1

Sagittarius, by Johfra. http://johfraposters.com

As we continue our journey looking at the fear-based reactions and love-based expressions of the twelve zodiac signs, we arrive at Sagittarius, the sign of the seeker.

Sagittarius is associated with seeking, searching, teaching, learning, travel, philosophy, wisdom, religion, idealism, optimism, purpose, freedom, goals and truth. These all seem like worthy higher pursuits, yet when viewed through the lens of the fear-based ego can become badly distorted. Higher truth, freedom and spiritual goals can become fear-based dogma, opinions, freedom for selfish pursuits, and ego-driven materialistic goals yet esoterically Sagittarius is a sign of liberation. The lessons that begin in one sign are carried forward by the next so like his predecessor Scorpio, Sagittarius is also learning the balance of power.

In Esoteric Astrology we are told that the fire signs bring 3 gifts. In Aries we have the gift of existence; in Leo we have the gift of opportunity through individuality and in Sagittarius we have the gift of power…

Scorpio Rising: The Scorpio Soul

Scorpio

Scorpio, by Johfra. http://johfraposters.com

As we continue our journey exploring the love-base expressions and fear based reactions of each Zodiac sign we arrive at the beautiful and enigmatic sign of Scorpio.

The intense sign of Scorpio is most commonly associated with sex, death and regeneration. It is also associated with other people’s money and resources, and even cruelty, so why beautiful? Because when we understand the underlying soul dynamics in Scorpio we see that there is a beautiful, natural, and inevitable process of integration, healing and transformation happening.

To connect the dots and see what these seemingly diverse associations have in common we have to understand a little about the stages of development of our soul through the signs and what particularly is happening at this stage of our soul’s journey. In Esoteric Astrology it is said that the soul ‘does battle’ in two signs: Leo and Scorpio. In Leo the battle is for our individuality, in Scorpio the battle is for our soul. Esoterically what happens in Scorpio is a process of personality-soul fusion. This explains the depth and intensity of Scorpio for it is in this sign that we need to face the depths of our own Soul, and succumb to the surrender of the ego that happens as a result…

Libra by Johfra

As we continue our journey through the twelve signs of the Zodiac, exploring the fear-based reactions and highest love-based expressions of each sign, we arrive at the beautiful sign of Libra. Symbolized by the scales, Libra is associated with balance, harmony, justice, ethics and the law. Esoterically Libra is associated with the Law of Harmonics, and the whole of Nature is governed by harmonics. Perfect balance. Ecosystems depend upon it.

“There is geometry in the humming of the strings,
there is music in the spacing of the spheres.”

Virgo Rising: The Virgo Soul

web_virgo

Artwork: “Virgo” by Josephine Wall ©Leanin Tree

The sign of Virgo is associated with health, healing, wholeness, the harvest, purity, the Divine Feminine, the Mother, Mother Earth and service, one’s vocation or spiritual calling.  The simplest way to summarize the purpose of a Virgo Soul is “to be an expression of Divine Love through one’s vocation or dharma”. In other words if you have Virgo Rising you can consider yourself to be a Virgo Soul, and your Soul’s purpose is to bring greater degrees of love into the world through your sacred work.

In modern times the meaning of work becomes distorted when we think we have to accept jobs that are ‘soul-destroying’ because we need the wages. In contrast, our true vocation is actually our spiritual calling. It is our Divine work and our very reason for being. It is the purest expression of our life and Soul, and finding our vocation, discovering the place of wholeness where we can fully be and express ourselves through our life’s work, is the highest purpose of Virgo. Before we can do this we have to ‘purify’ the fear-based expressions of Virgo and access the highest love-based expression of this beautiful sign…

Leo Rising: The Leo Soul

web_leo

Artwork: “Leo” by Josephine Wall ©Leanin Tree

The regal sign of Leo is associated with Kings, royalty, nobility, drama, theater, actors, children, creativity and play. Leo is the sign of Self-realization: the path that takes us from self-consciousness, through self-awareness to ultimate Self-realization. Along the way we may develop a misguided sense of self-importance but this is understandable when we consider our experience as we pass through the Leo stage of our Soul’s journey.

Your Soul’s journey is indicated by your Rising Sign (Ascendant). If you have Leo rising you can consider yourself to be a Leo Soul and you are part of the group of Leo Souls who are here to
