I've always been very interested in Astrology so I'm dedicating a whole entry to what I learned from Michael McGowan during his workshop session. He first started out by saying that the stuff you read in the newspapers and your daily horoscopes is a load of rubbish in that they only focus on your Sun sign, what we commonly identify our zodiac sign with from date of birth as your Sun sign only makes up 1/20th of your personality. My Sun sign for example is Leo and represents my sense of self, who I am when I'm at my best, and how I am when personally fulfilled. We were told that most people will not come into their Sun sign until their late 20s and that adulthood isn't technically achieved until you're 28 or 30. This is the age where you're growing and defining yourself as an adult. Many people describe this change around the age of 28 - 30 as the Return of Saturn because you're settling into new patterns of life. Check out No Doubt's album Return of Saturn. We were also told that naturally a person goes through a life change every 14 years so of course that will then naturally correspond with your mid-life crisis, ages 42 - 44. A person will have less of a problem w/ their midlife crisis if they take the time to discover whom they are as people leading up until the age of 28 - 30. If they discover who they are at that point they will have less of an ordeal coping with their midlife crisis.... Very interesting.

So, there are a number of other signs that each person has based on the date, time and place they were born. These describe the planets and what houses they were in at the time of your birth. You can find out what your other signs are by becoming a member for free @ StarIQ and filling out you time, place and date of birth, you must know the time of your birth so contact your mother:-)

Anywho, this is what I am.

Your Moon sign represents your feminine and emotional nature and how you act when you are vulnerable and how you'd like to be nurtured.

You Mercury sign represents how you learn, think and like to be taught. It also deals with your methods of communications and how you act in relationships.

Your Venus sign focuses on beauty and harmony... how you want to be romanced as well as your values

Your Mars sign is your masculine sign, what controls your energy, frustration, motivation and sexual energy.

Your Antecedent is your Rising Sign or how you see the world and how it sees you. It's the fašade you put on in new situations, something you hide behind before people really know you. It's how you start things and how you protect yourself. Ever feel that after meeting a person that upon your second meeting they seem much different?

There are other signs ruled by other planets but those planets move sooo slowly they are referred to as generational planets, changing every three years.

I really enjoyed this workshop because he spoke of how he will do astrological dinner parties and figure each of these qualities out for each person. It then helps the people usually your friends realize how and why they relate to each other a certain way. For example, we naturally want to comfort a person they way we would like to be comforted but that's not naturally how they would like to be comforted and you can be seen as unfeeling, etc. He also stated that we are attracted to people who are different from us and will help balance our lives due to the fact that they possess traits we don't have.

We then spoke of the Elements. Zodiac signs are split into 4 categories, Earth, Air, Wind and Fire.

Earth signs are Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. Earth signs are characterized by being people of substance, they like to see, touch, taste and feel. They are slow, steady and solid and resist change.

Air signs are Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. Air signs are typified as being people of ideas, communication, people whom relate or can be related to and constantly changing.

Water signs are Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. They enjoy feeling, intuition, flowing, nurturing, absorbing, can become stagnant and lose boundaries easily.

Fire Signs are Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. They are creative, active, like constant movement, dynamic, consumes, and are immediate.

This is my break down according to planet IQ.
