Steve Jobs Had Aries Moon

Steve Jobs Had Aries Moon

 

It’s not surprising that Apple Co-Founder Steve Jobs, a Pisces Sun, had an Aries Moon given the trails he ultimately blazed with Apple as its front man. Plus, he had Uranus (the planet of technology) and Jupiter (planet of luck) conjunct in his 10th House, the Career/Public House. The man was bound to succeed in his field. While we’re sure the other two co-founders, Steve Wozniak and Ronald Wayne, did too (we haven’t looked into their charts as of this writing), as the company’s face, it was obvious  Jobs lived and breathed his Apple persona and, thus, the company’s cult-like success. And, we wager that there is not one person of the last two generations who is not familiar with Apple branding and — enemy or foe of its technological success — who can discount the company’s innovation in that regard. Remember from our Aries Sun Sign post, Aries, as natural leaders, are not hard to follow.  As you might already know, the Moon Sign represents the emotional self, while the Sun Sign represents one’s vitality, basic  nature. In honor of Apple’s Birthday, April 1, 1976, we’d like to focus on the Aries Moon. Of course speaking in simple terms, it could be said Jobs and Apple share Aries qualities: firebrand, always going off boldly where no one else wants to go with a childlike innocence and belief that no one can stop them.  Jobs was a complex man from his hidden philanthropy and his rep for being stubborn (Pisces Sun) to having a temper when he didn’t get his way (so it’s rumored) and his devoted (childlike) loyalty and commitment to his vision no matter what the naysayers, well, say  (Aries Moon).

Happy Birthday Apple!

Aries Ruling Planet—Mars

Aries Ruling Planet—Mars

“The attraction, desire, imagination and childlike wonder this planet inspires is undeniable—and irresistible. As are the Aries folk themselves.”

Action! That is the name of the game for the Ruling Planet of Aries Sun Sign, Mars. This forward movement is even apparent in its symbol, a circle with an arrow emerging from it, pointing toward the sky at a 45-degree angle. It is said that the circle represents a warrior’s shield and the arrow, a spear representing the warrior Roman god Mars or Greek god Ares. More subtly, (maybe?) it represents the male sex and iron. I think you can read between the lines on that one. Now,  if your mythology lessons still live in your mind, you might be able to remember the two gods were viewed differently, with Rome’s being considered more of a protector. In fact he is also referred to as the god of agriculture, which makes sense if you reason it out. He protected the land by ensuring conditions that would allow the land to be fruitful and by fending off enemies who threatened to take the land. By protecting the people’s food source, he was protecting them too, not so much violence for violence sake. On the other hand, Greece’s god was considered one who engaged in violence just for that sake. So why does the Astrological Sign’s name follow the bad god’s name and the Ruling Planet the good god’s (using these terms loosely of course)? More

Astrological Sun Sign Aries
Planetary Ruler: Mars
Element: Fire
Quality: Cardinal

Leader, childlike, independent, direct, impatient, short attention span, energetic, charming, bold, quick tempered

Aries  (March 21-April 19), the sign of the Ram, is the first of the 12 Zodiac signs. They are the “newborns” of the zodiac and this can be easily seen in their childlike, energetic approach to life, their attention moving from one thing to another as they explore life’s offerings, their loyalties unabashedly simple and uncomplicated. This certain naivete is surely a benefit of being the baby of the Zodiac and of envy to the “older” signs. Even as they grow into adults, these traits generally stick, including a childlike charm that is hard to resist. They are great at starting things but can fall off on the finishing end of the bargain if their attention is distracted by  the next shiny thing. That said they go after their shiny objects, whether people, things or ideas, with energy and enthusiasm.  The Ram suits these folks as their symbol too. It charges after whatever it has its eye on in bold fashion, regardless of who might get in the way. And their element Fire is appropriate to, giving that spark in most things they do, and even at times to their temperament (think Russell Crowe and Alec Baldwin). You ask how can these people be leaders if they’re off  running all over the place all the time acting like children! Well, the Aries quality is Cardinal, which gives them their leadership capabilities. It’s a nice combination if you think about it. Who wouldn’t want to go off and follow someone who can take charge with a certain innocent charm that casts a spell of fun on any endeavor?  Oh, don’t worry, we haven’t forgotten the effect of this Sun sign’s Ruling Planet! We will write about Mars in our next post. If you know any Aries, man or woman, it’s a safe bet you’ve noticed these folks’ sex appeal immediately!

It’s important to point out that we are speaking here about the Aries Sun sign’s general traits. Other factors can cancel them out or emphasize them even more, including what House the Sun Sign resides in, the Moon Sign and House, and the Ascendant Sign. Look for a post entitled Astrology 101 soon explaining these elements of a person’s birth personality.

Albert Einstein Was a Pisces

Albert Einstein Was a Pisces

The creativity we’ve mentioned throughout the Pisces blogs doesn’t restrain itself to the arts.Quite possibly the world’s most creative mind was born to an Albert Einstein, March 14, 1879, in Ulm, Germany. This man meets all the astrological sign of Pisces Sun/Neptune Ruler basic characteristics: out-of-the-box thinking (creativity and imagination), playing the violin (music), sailing (water), promoting an equal, peaceful society (compassion for the masses). History’s This Day in History gives a good synoptic take on this amazing man!

And other Piscean tendencies can be found in his words (which we feel confident they likely matched his thoughts):

The secret to creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.

The high destiny of the individual is to server rather than rule.

Imagination is more important than knowledge.

More can be found at Brainy Quote (or many other sites…just search Einstein quotes).

Pisces Element—Water

Pisces Element—Water

If you’ve read the Pisces Sun Sign and the Pisces Ruling Planet—Neptune posts, by now you know the element Pisces is “made of”…water. Each astrological sign is qualified by an element…water, earth, fire and air…with three signs to each element. Cancer and Scorpio join Pisces. These three signs share qualities associated with water…more so in the metaphorical sense than in the literal sense (though you’d be hard pressed to find one of these signs who is not noticeably attracted to pull of the sea). Emotional, tidal, sensitive, nurturing, selfish, intuitive, cold, imaginative, escapist. The kingdom of Pisces’ ruler stretches far and wide, spanning nearly three-quarters of the Earth, no less. So it’s these natives who possibly are the most sensitive to the undercurrents of their watery world. Their deceptive subtle, calm nature can be likened to a baby’s heartbeat muted by the amniotic fluid of its mother’s womb. They are very alive. And of the trio, it’s the only mutable astrological sign. You see a trend. By it’s very nature the sea is always changing, and so it is with Pisces. Another explanation to these folks’ “dual” nature and ability to swim in any direction, eluding capture but only by the most skilled of anglers…unless they allow themselves to be caught, that is.

Pisces Ruling Planet—Neptune

Pisces Ruling Planet—Neptune

“Some might say this planet’s spell can be magical or frightening, depending on the soul it rules…or maybe it just depends on the day, hour or minute in the life of that soul!”

The Pisces Sun Sign is ruled by the planet Neptune. What a symbol to be ruled by — a trident! One brandished by a bare chested God of the Sea, with a flowing beard no less! Remember the list of descriptors in the post about Pisces? Several implied they operate in a behind the scenes, subtle fashion. Often those who know a Pisces well will at some point recognize that these folks rule ever so subtly or far away, just enough that you’re hooked before you have any idea of how or when it happened. Maybe because they thrive “hidden” under the water, a place where most mortals can’t breathe. Being planet number eight, it’s the last and the farthest planet from the sun. But its mass is 17 times that of Earth, so you see, though it’s a planet operating from the murky depths in a sea of space, its notice is not easily escaped, though you might not be sure what it is. That was apparently the case in its discovery. More

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20), the sign of the Fish, is the last of the 12 Zodiac signs. It is said if those who are born under it have lived right, by the end of their lifetime they will have reached the highest octave supposedly achievable by man. Jesus is thought to be a Pisces, so now you get the implication (and also hence the link to the ancient fish symbolizing Christianity that was posted outside taverns and inns, for example, to show travelers and patrons that Christians were welcome..the symbol is still used this way today by some businesses). But Jesus Christ was a Superstar after all and, thus, a hard act to follow. Manny who are close to a Pisces might experience a person who is just about Christ-like, loving, honest, and kind one day and one who is deceptive, manipulative and selfish the next, always confounding those around him or her. (But don’t forget, though the essence of their sign implicates that they have a chance to fully evolve in this lifetime, they are human too, so give them a break, especially if their higher self is present most of the time.)  It’s no wonder this horoscope sign is symbolized by two (slippery) fish swimming in opposite directions from each other, aptly reflecting the sign’s duality and mutability (see upcoming post on this). That said they can be very compassionate and idealistic folk who want to help those in need—and counted on to do so. Those with this Sun sign are are highly intuitive and aware of that they are so. They usually have a strong artistic bent too, especially with regard to music talent. Or if they don’t actively manifest their creativity into an art form,  they at the least are avid supporters, again, especially of music. Much of these traits are thanks to the sign’s Ruling Planet, Neptune and the House it’s in. Learn more by reading the post, Pisces Ruling Planet—Neptune.
