Leader Leo

Leo

Leo

This week on the zodiac train, I bring you Leo! Enjoy this piece as the zodiac series continue.

Leo Personality

All Leos of the world can be described using one metaphor – the sun. They want to be a sun giving out light and warmth to the whole world, and to see everyone in their circles thriving in or at least benefitting from their radiance. One other important thing needs to understand is that Leo is the sign of extremities.
People of this Leo sun sign innately want to lead and be a master, but for those they adore and revere, they are ready to become slaves. They are very well organized and do things just the way they ought to be done, but it is also true that they are much better at organizing and systematizing others’ lives than their own. This trait of theirs sometimes borders on bossiness. But all this effort to improve another person’s life comes with an unnatural amount of warmth, kindly encouragement and a promise for help without having to ask, whenever it is needed.
The other thing about Leos is their creative streak – they possess some talent that hardly anyone around them is good at. But they can also be influenced very easily, and are prone to losing out against nagging criticism. They therefore have a great need to be encouraged and shown the right way. In friendships, Leos are very generous and caring, but may also get a little carried away and shower their affections on the wrong person. The same happens in case of love interests, but if the other person is the right one, he/she will find no dearth of kindness and generosity.
Leos are very passionate and very faithful partners, but the problem is their extremely sensitive nature. And this sensitivity is on most occasions eclipsed by their influential and bossy exteriors. So it’s quite possible that their partner may have hurt them in something he/she says without his/her even realizing it. That’s why living with a Leo takes some getting used to.

Leo Qualities and Characteristics

Lion is considered the ruler of the jungle, so also you are the leader of your own world; you exhibit impeccable bravery, superiority and sovereignty. You are expected to achieve extraordinary feats. You have the strength of character to take command of any situation and your presence commands respect and attention. And just like a king, you have a big heart, you are generous and sensitive to others’ feelings.
But again, you are quite egotistical and it’s quite easy to flatter and take advantage of you. At the same time, you tend to be quite self-congratulatory and boastful and at the same time dominating, courting resentment from your peers. Leo is all about ambition and compassion; and at the same time headstrong and a little corrupted by power. But it equally characteristic of you to be contemplative and moody, especially when you are with yourself.
You can get into deep depressions, but the only answer to this problem is self-control, hard work and paying heed to others’ counsel. You show your ambitious and sensitive character with your relationships with the opposite sex. And you are also in quite a bit of luck, but being a little imprudent, it would be ill-advised for you to try your hand at speculation.
Qualities that make you lucky are bighearted, forceful, aristocratic, and affectionate. Qualities that hinder your success are aggressiveness, boastful, haughty, and pride.

Leo Friendship Compatibility

Leos have a very wide circle of acquaintances and friends and mutual friends. But most of them are just part of their circle of influence, they will deal with them only if a need arises on either side, and even though they are helpful and dependable and all that, they do not take these as their ‘friends’. That takes a lot of time – they form a rapport first, find out the likes and dislikes and more importantly the character of the other person, and only then decide if the other person is right for them. And once they have given him/her that status, the friendship is for a lifetime. They will stop at very little in making sure that friend of theirs is not in any kind of distress.
Even if they have lost touch with their friend for a long time, they do not find it difficult to resume from where they left it. This is because friendship means too much to them. They would themselves not want someone to call them a friend just after a brief acquaintance. They of course like meeting new people, making contacts, enjoying their company and being of use to them whenever need by. But the title of ‘friend’ is too sanctimonious for them to be conferred to too many people.
Once they make a friend, they wanna do a lot for them. For example, if the friend has some talent that he/she wants to show or some project that he/she wants to work on, there can be no one better than the Leo at encouraging and helping out the other person in his/her endeavors. When they become adults, Leos show their generosity by giving away generous presents to their friends children, and taking them to fancy restaurants for dinner. Now, such things may turn on their head and the friends may start thinking that our guy is splashing money at them. Thus, there is always a fine line that should never be crossed. Too bad for the Leo because there is no joy for him/her greater than that of knowing that others derive pleasure from things that he/she gifted them with his/her hard earned money. That is the way of the world, the misers can’t keep everything in and the generous can’t give everything out.

Leo Career and Money

Leos need a profession where they can express themselves fully, shine in a way that all can see, and show of their talent. Even if they have hardly any opportunity to show their talent, they will be happy to just show their work, and be appreciated and noticed for it. A backend job with hardly any responsibilities and total isolation is not their cup of tea. They do not mind if they are made to work in a library or a department store, or made a receptionist at a desk, they want a job where they feel someone is directly benefitting from their services, and also receive accolades and admiration from him for the work they have done.
So their basic objective is to make life a little easier for atleast a few people. And even with all the need for appreciation and commendation, they have this personal yardstick of doing well, and they have to cross that minimum. If not, they will suffer from depression and restlessness. Of course, these bouts keep coming in their lives, when they feel everything is just falling apart and that they are of no use to the society, but there’s no one better at coming out of such states than them. And when they’re out, they will be alive and kicking as ever, and they will go out and make things happen.
Another remarkable characteristic of a Leo is his/her insistence on doing things properly and without flaw. Leos hate amateurs and strive hard at achieving high standards in their output. Whatever their career might be, they show this quality to the fullest and their superiors take notice of this. They soon rise in influence and then boss around people working under them to show perfection and professionalism. They do not want to do things properly, they need to do things properly so that people may take notice. Leos would love nothing more than to stand out as an example. Leos, however, do not shine in time-consuming jobs that they find unnecessary and annoying. And if their superior is, according to them, stupid and incompetant, and demands being sucked up to, then the Leo will be the first to give it to him in the face, without caring about the job. They need appreciation and opportunity, but not at the cost of their honour!

Leo in Love and Romance

When a Leo falls in love, he/she falls very hard and very quick. He/she will shout out and declare to the world that he loves such and such a person. Leos are full of zest and vitality when it comes to love, sex and relationships, and for this reason they give a lot and expect a lot in return. Sure they are let down at times, sure there are some heartaches and sad moments, but that’s a part of the Leo way of life. And you what – many years later, at old age, when they look back upon their lives, they experience happiness, nostalgia, sadness too, but never regret. So as the sun shines out through the clouds, the Leo keeps enjoying life without losing his/her vitality even with all the setback he/she suffers in life.
The Leo’s enthusiasm and verve makes the partner enjoy all the things that the Leo enjoys. It happens almost naturally, and takes hardly any persuation. One thing the Leo and his/her partner need to realize is that even in the most intimate of relationships, sharing interests and combined enjoyment are required as a lubricant is required for smooth running of a machine. And this need is experienced all the more by the Leo.
Leos express their creativity and passion in their sexual life quite skillfully and also set up the atmosphere needed for the work up to the love making with an impeccable dexterity. They set the pace of the relationship and never give up. The partners are very content with this attitude and hardly ever have a reason to complain. The only glitch, however, is that in setting up the scene, the Leo may become a little too overwhelming for the partner. He/she might forget that the partner might be a little shy and the situation might be too hot to handle. Thus it is sometimes necessary for the Leo to supress his/her need to be appreciated and noticed all the time, even though it is his/her prime priorities.

Leo in Marriage

Leos want to enjoy marriage to the fullest, just like any other enterprise they they step into. And marriages start with weddings; so whether it’s a man or a woman, the Leo would want to wait for the wedding until enough money is in hand, so that all the arrangements can be made – the full church ceremony, the extravagant reception and the honeymoon – to measure up to the his/her dream wedding. After the wedding, Leos put all their time and effort into making the marriage a fulfilling one. They encourage their partners to follow their convictions and ambitions to the fullest.
However, in doing so, the Leo can himself/herself be imposing his/her convictions on the partner. He/she may get imposing and untolerable to the extreme. And what’s more, when being criticized, he/she will not listen, leave alone owning up to the criticism. And if you are a Leo, you shouldn’t take this the wrong way – it comes naturally to you. In your enthusiasm for the partnership, you get so involved in getting the best out of it that you don’t realize that you’re crossing the line. If the partner is a little less assertive, then the Leo might always have it his/her way and not even realize the fact that it is not at all good for the relationship. In a relationship, what’s more important than deciding on something that’s best for both in a monetary or domestic situation, is there being a balance. In order to do this, the Leo should think of the things that he/she wants most when he/she does something for the spouse, and return the same things when the spouse does something for him/her.
Leos never forget what it was like to be a child, being treated like a child and not being explained things properly. So they never treat their children like children. They treat them the way the wish they were treated – with respect, and in doing so, gain the respect of their children. There will be no baby talk or coochee-cooing when they need to tell their kids they love them, so that a strong, sensible relationship is built right from the start. The parent should only make sure that he/she does not become domineering.

And that is all on Leo. Follow up next week as we continue the zodiac series.

Cautious Cancer

Cancer

Cancer

This zodiac post is coming quite late but it’s here all the same. Enjoy the latest post from the zodiac series.

Cancer Personality

Cancerians are very defensive creatures – defensive of themselves, their friends and family. They have a very strong and formidable defensive fort in his psyche. He is not intimidated that easily and can sometimes take an aggressive stand in order to protect himself emotionally from transgresses of others. Anyone who intentionally or unintentionally jeopardizes their or their close ones’ dignity or self-respect, you will feel fended off or even pinned down. But if you persevere and gain their trust with time (which you most definitely will if your intensions are honest), you will see the soft, caring and considerate inner self – because now you are one of the protected.
Their family is very important for them, and comes at the top in the list of priorities. They make excellent parents, but are not so good at letting go of their children when the situation requires it which again tells us about their protective self. They also happen to be very emotional and often fall into the depths of nostalgia. No wonder they have an excellent memory – they hardly miss a piece of detail about their past. Cancerian children start out being extremely sensitive and emotionally fragile, but with time they develop their protective and affectionate self. So if you see your Cancerian kid taking care of a younger brother or sister or the family pet, be sure that your kid is growing up.
To their loved ones, Cancerians present their most soft and mellow self. So they may overreact to incidents and tend to be very moody at times. But they are very sensual and can be the best of companions. They can get hurt by their companions very easily, but are in no way weak. They can strike back with equal force and venom.

Cancer Qualities and Characteristics

Cancerians are considered to be quite unsophisticated from the inside and prone to move around in search of the right opportunity. It is also a widely accepted notion that they are sensitive and protective. They don’t find it difficult to blend in the environment, and at the same time, are also quite attached to their family.
But there are quite many other facets to your personality. You have special love for the spotlight, and the desire to be admired and loved is very dominant in your character. You are very touchy, and get emotional a lot more often than others. You sense of purpose for everything you do, and you are ready to endure anything if you feel the end result is worth it.
You will move in all directions to reach you destination, and this makes things possible for you that no other person around you can manage to pull off. This also increases your money making opportunities, and you might well make your way into large money-making firms. You have an innate feeling of insecurity and timidity, and this prevents you from taking risks and thereby inhibits your growth.
You have strong likes and dislikes and preconceived notions. Talking about your sex drive, you clearly exhibit your intrinsic craving for proximity. You need intimacy from your mate, failing which you develop a wall between you and your mate. To top it all, you have a fascination for money and all the luxuries that it can bring to your feet.
Qualities that make you lucky are understanding, imaginative, desire to success, and trustworthiness. Qualities that hinder your success are moodiness, pride, pessimism, and tendency to get hurt easily.
Pamela Anderson, Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks, Princess Diana, Sylvester Stallone; We know them as famous Cancerians.

Cancer Friendship Compatibility

Cancerians make very good friends. They sure as hell don’t make a lot of friends – most potential candidates are fended of because of a faux pas they commit at some point. But the few chosen ones form a part of the inner circle and make for a very firm and deeply meaningful friendship.
If you are a young Cancerian, you would be very willing to take your friends home and introduce them to your family, and if you are a parent, then you might want your children to bring their friends home and familiarize them to the family. This shows a strong family circle and also the fact that Cancerians do not quite differentiate friends from family. This is because they do not rush into friendships. They take some time with the other person, see if you make a good rapport with him/her, and only then allow him/her into their circle. This comes naturally to them.
The risky part here is that if the friend here is a little younger than the Cancerian, that the latter may start to behave like a parent – he/she might start acting in a very protective fashion, and treating him/her as a child. Since the friend is just a little younger than you and a friend, by definition, he/she will resent it. But the Cancerian can’t help it – it comes naturally to you.
You can’t just sit down and see a younger friend make the same mistakes that you did a few years ago and suffer in the same fashion. He/she will just have to curb his/her natural tendencies.
However, Cancerians have the ability and the habit of turning a close group of friends into a kind of family. They are also very good at patching things up with their friends, or even between two friends. People will love them for that and remember them forever.

Cancer Career and Money

Cancerians are good at getting used to conditions and fitting into almost any kind of working conditions. We talked about their psychological protective mechanism – this helps them from getting bouyed down from distressing conditions brought about by colleagues or the natural state of the workspace.
The problem with them, however, is that they tend to get a little too attached with petty issues, and thus end up worrying about their career more than necessary. Now their careers are important for them, so they have to worry about it; it comes naturally to them. So they can’t just stop worrying just because you tell them to do so. What they need to do is to get used to the daily routine. They have these ups and downs in their mood, like the waves of an ocean. Getting used to these changes in their psyche, making sufficient changes in their style of work in a reciprocal manner, and if possible trying to like these changes will make them that much stronger at facing issues related to them. So what they need to fight is within them, nothing outside their psyche can cause any harm to them.
Cancerians should take up jobs that have an element of doing good to the community because they have that protective streak within them. They will make good teachers preparing their pupils to face the world, good captains fulfilling every need of their ship crew and passengers and good chefs preparing excellent dishes for their customers. The will probably make the best doctors and nurses.
An issue worth noting for Cancerian mothers is that they will make excellent moms, but that will mean giving up their careers, at least for a while, in order to take care of children after birth. Not all Cancerian moms will do this, but it’s are very prominent trait; in fact they do not take it as an obstruction, but rather as a privilege. But if such mothers wish to get back into the trade, it would be advisable for them to keep in touch with the changes taking place in their professional sphere.

Cancer in Love and Romance

Attractions can be deceptive – you believe this and truly implement it in your life if you are a Cancerian. You will not approach any person that you are attracted to in any sort of way and try to move things forward. You keep yourself at a safe distance for a while and analyze the other person. You see if he/she is good enough for you, if things will actually move forward, whether you feel you really can start meaningful relationship with the other person or it’s just a temporary infatuation.
In doing so, if the person in question tries to approach you then you might even take evasive action. Once Cancerians have made up mind in favor of an approach, it will not be very difficult for them to make things happen, they are naturally talented for that. On the other hand, if Cancerians are the one being pursued (which obviously applies a lot more for women than for men), no matter of what kind the first approach is, the first reaction will be a defensive one. How smoothly you do this without letting the pursuer feel hurt depends on your skill.
But that initial barrier will just take a few minutes to melt down in which time they will make up their mind. One of the most important factors, if not the most important factor, will be to what extent you are attracted to this person. All this might sound a little unromantic, but it might be the right thing to do at that moment for quite a lot of reasons.
Cancerians are very sensual, loving and caring and make for excellent lovers. They are really good at making their partners feel they’re being taken care of. On a special occasion, they will meticulously take care of every little thing, and make the whole experience a very memorable one for their lover.
The basic problem with them is their highly moody nature. You can never be sure how they will feel and behave at a particular point in time, they themselves cannot. So if the mood is not right, they might make some really nasty comments which might be more detrimental than just spoiling an evening. After all, Cancerians are not the only ones with a good memory. The only way out of this fix is that Cancerians guard their tongues at all times, and their partners understand their nature and forgive and forget any transgression from their companion as an unintentional one.

Cancer in Marriage

Cancerians are naturally keen to marry – it is not that they feel very lonely or anything when they are alone; after all they have very good family ties and a lovely circle of friends. It’s just that tying the knot with someone and having a family of their own is very enticing for them. Even when they live alone, they do things that are really fulfilling in a familial sort of way.
Women might become nursery teachers or nurses in children’s hospital. You have it in you to make excellent spouses and excellent parents. And while they do all they can to make their domestic life better, don’t expect them to give up on their professional endeavors the least bit. They will make the most of all opportunities that come their way – after all, their work is their instrument for providing their family with everything it needs.
Cancerians, however, have a very grave problem – they need to tackle the career versus family issue. They want to work hard and make a lot of money so that they can provide their family with all kinds of luxuries and provisions, but again they have a strong impulse to be with their spouse and children spend quality time with them. This impulse is a lot stronger with women, who would want to take care of their children, cook their favourite dish, help them with their homework, and take care of their husbands when they come home from work. But at some point, they have to do the balancing act, and in this they struggle.
Cancerians no doubt have a strongly sensual side that will keep their drive alive for years. This drive will fight demands of their work atmosphere and everything, but the real opposition comes from domestic life. Tending growing children and taking care of them can take away all of your sexual impulses from you. When such things happen, the couple should think about the better of the family, and not just in terms of their ruined sexual life.

That’s all for Cancer. The zodiac series continues with “the Lion”, Leo, this weekend.

Have a great week!

Double Gemini

The Zodiac train continues with Gemini taking the centre-spot today. Have a good read and don’t forget to check with your friends.

Gemini Personality

For all the people you see in your workplace, pegging along at a slow pace, working on things that are too linear to test any kind of ability or intelligence of any person and taking care of the same mundane tasks every single day with the sole objective of making a living, there is one thing you can be pretty damn sure of – they are definitely not Geminians.
Of all the great tragedies and maladies of the world, nothing terrorizes the Geminian more than boredom. They are, since birth, used to multitasking. They just can’t go about life one issue at a time. Parents might find this amusing, but they should nonetheless try not to encourage it. Doing too many things at once from a young age spoils their sense of style and brings about a trait that is most common in Geminians – superficiality. For them, after a point, all that looks good is good enough. They become a jack of all trades and start concentrating only on the packaging. In some professions such as ones relating to media, however, that is exactly what you need from a person – a little knowledge of almost everything, but not too much. So it’s not such a bad thing after all. In the workplace, it is important that they have as many projects as they can, so that they may work on whichever they have the mood to work on at that moment.
Alas, this multitasking capability is too innate to your nature – you start exhibiting this characteristic even in your love life. That does not bring a lot of happiness for your partner. This does not always raise issues relating to guilt, although normally it should (otherwise one should think something’s wrong). In such tricky situations, what helps the Geminian more than anything else is his/her great ability to talk his/her way out.
On a professional and even personal level, the characteristic of a Geminian is vigor. He/she happens to be restless and energetic to the extreme – that’s what gives him/her the resources for all that multitasking. But this can take a toll on the person. The Geminian can never completely let go of things and relax, and this will be the cause of mental troubles.

Gemini Qualities and Characteristics

Gemini signifies the dual edged nature that you possess. You have a great mind that does a lot more than calculate and judge. You are inquisitive and new and unique ideas come to you quite naturally, and these do not lack any of the style and elegance.
Your twin edge makes you quite determined and stationary but capricious from time to time, you are sincere in your relationship with your sweetheart but at the same time have a tendency to flirt with other women. So, you are quite swift and take command over the situation in no time, but it’s difficult for you to stay on top, or maintain the lead. You also have a tendency to reach out to people; this is why you cannot live without communicating.
You are quite astute and opportunistic and don’t miss a chance to make fast money. Corresponding to this, you also spend with quite ease. You are quite smart and funny and this attracts people to you all the more, but you need to be more objective and focused towards your goal. You seem to be quite susceptible to changes in your mood, and this will only lead to greater loss of the sense of purpose. Try to gain control of yourself.
Qualities that make you lucky are wittiness, brilliancy, cheery, and gay. Qualities that hinder your success are messy, happy-go-lucky, cruelty, and incompatible.
Johnny Depp, Steffi Graf, Elizabeth Hurley, Anna Kournikova, Prince William; We know them as famous people with sun in Gemini.

Gemini Friendship Compatibility

Gemini definitely have the most diverse group of friends of all the sun signs. Gemini make friends from all age groups, all places and cultures, and all walks of life. You need the variety so that you can be able to be with the right kind of people according to the mood. You are a natural skeptic, but still you take people for what they are; which means you generally see people in good light. As a result, it is not very hard to call someone your friend. Your doors are always open – it’s not really hard for you to make a friend; neither is it hard for the other person to be called your friend and have your confidence. But, as is the problem with such groups, there is hardly one who can be depended on and called for help when you need it.
You are enthusiastic about your hobbies and almost anything you do, and this spreads on to your circle of friends. This in turn encourages you to pursue your endeavors more vigorously. This is exactly what empowers you to relentless make efforts on projects and see deals through to their completion. Having intelligent and informed peers in that group helps you a lot. How? You normally like to make sweeping statements to entertain your audience, but a smart person with a good presence of mind can question you and pose a challange for you. You will not get away that easily with those thought-provoking comments now because someone is really provoked. Thus, your skills and quality of conversation will improve greatly.
You will enjoy the company of the young and youthful more, as they share your vigor and enthusiasm, and radical outlook. However, you do not mind an interesting conversation even if it comes from the older friends of yours. You will need to do a little rethinking once in a while about the extent to which you can give liberty to these friends of yours.

Gemini Career and Money

Geminians possess a level of genius generally not witnessed in people, but in quite many ways, it creates problems for people they work with. They find it difficult to run on the much trodden path, and on many an occasion want to find a way of their own. No matter what their colleagues might think or say, I think they should continue with it, because it works excellently well for them. Moving along, Geminians are good at keeping pace with the latest developments of their trade. And it’s not just for the sake of keeping in touch, they enjoy it and learn from it. They like working in some kind of a pattern where they know, more or less, what they will be dealing with the next day, and be prepared for it. But they definitely can’t bare a mundane job where there is no skill or dexterity involved and an employee has to do the same thing in the same way day in and day out. However, even in such cases, they will try to find out new ways, introduce new concepts and throw new light on tasks that people would find too routine and boring to even think about. If not anything else, they will try to lighten the atmosphere with some kind of comic act. Geminians are definitely good at amusing seniors and coworkers.
All of the observations I have made, actually, boil down to one need that all Geminians possess – the need to communicate with people. In the professional sphere, it might translate to interacting with people they work with and trying to find out their needs and issues, meeting superiors, discuss philosophies and methodologies of working in the organization and suggesting new ideas, and if possible talking to the people who benefit from their work and taking appreciation and criticism for their output. They can’t just do something they are told to do, give the output and then just forget about it; they are too attached to their work to be that cold.
In the long run, Geminians can only sustain a job in which they have sufficient freedom to exercise their ingenuity, and be able to do things their way without any restrictions. They want to be known as skilled craftsmen in their profession, and take pride in the different approach they have towards tasks. They might survive a long while in an unsatisfying job, but it’s not good for their emotional and intellectual fulfillment.

Gemini in Love and Romance

In keeping with Gemini extrovert side, if you think you have fallen in love with someone, you will not waste a second in telling that person that you love him/her. If you are a little too romantic, you might keep beating round the bush, making all kinds of arrangements, and finally screwing up the end game. This is because romanticism and the normal Geminian extrovert and confident nature do not go hand in hand. Otherwise, normally, you have the gift of the gab, as they say. So, you can actually say it even while not saying it; that is, by making up stories and beautifying the conversation, you will put your point across without any shadow of doubt. But when it’s the partner talking and expressing himself/herself, you might tend to get a little restless. It’s natural to you, but definitely not excuse. No matter how impatient you get, no matter how much you may think the other person is wasting time and not coming to the point, you should not interrupt and neither should you engage in other activities. This might terribly irritate you partner, as this might be one of the most important moments of his/her life.
Coming to the sex life, you need to satisfy your need for change and variety. A little experimentation and a few surprises will not go out of the way, but for that, you will have to talk to your partner, and make sure he/she is cool with it. Now comes the issue of wanting more than one companion. The thing is that Geminians want the most of everything, so that it is hard for them to imagine all of them to come from one person. They have physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual needs, and for each of them, they might have a different partner. So they have different partners for different needs, they do not prefer one over the other, or love one more than the other. But that is no consolation for the partner. What they need to do is to be more careful about compatibility in all the four departments with the other person before moving forward with the relationship, and then training themselves to fulfil all their needs from the same person. Unfortunately for them, their natural tendencies are looked upon as cheating by the society.

Gemini in Marriage

Things have got to be really messed up in order that you may panic and want to find escape from a marriage; because that’s how good you really are at making relationships work. And it’s not just one or two talents, your whole personality is made for it. You are good at forming a rapport with the other person, and making him/her tell his/her feelings without any kind of fear or shyness. They can sort out almost any issue just by talking with the partner. And this is also because of their impeccable level of understanding. The can without difficulty relate someone else’s point of view with their own. The only problem is that sometimes all they need to do is listen, but instead they listen out, make their own argument and present it in such a way that the other person is completely made to change his/her stand.
You are naturally enthusiastic about stuff and have the knack of taking things on a light note. This is what makes you look a lot younger and energetic than you really are and makes you very popular among individuals of the other sex. This ability of yours of making every moment of your companion a very enjoyable and memorable one takes you places and allows you to have experiences that you never thought possible.
So you will do a lot with your life. But sometimes it’s necessary to just cool down and enjoy the quieter moments of life, when there is nothing much happening to fulfil your spirit, but there is still juice in the moment which can be absorbed only if you are ready to accept the occasion for what it is. The point I’m trying to make is that you are like a tourist all the time willing to go new places, meet new people and know new things just for the excitement, but what you are missing is the real feel associated with being in that place, and being with those people. Sacrificing emotional and spiritual moments for physical and intellectual satisfaction is not prudent according to me. Another important thing to remember is that Geminians stand for equality in a marriage at all levels, so they might not always be happy with their role – they might wanna swap portfolios with their partners. And there’s nothing wrong with it; if nothing else, it will just bring a change in life and make one understand the other more.

That’s all on Gemini today. Next week we roll on with stuff on Cancerians.

Thorough Taurans

Taurus

Taurus

After a week off wordpress, I return with more zodiac portrayal of the Taurans. Read and learn about your friends.

Taurus Personality

Of all the twelve sun-signs, Taurus is the one most in need of order, security and self-assurance. Taurus are not friendly to indecision and chaos at all. They work hard at bringing security – social and economical, in their and their loved ones’ lives. They will find it very hard to risk it for something in the air, no matter how great and majestic it might be. These are really patient people that will never throw in the towel and keep fighting for what they value and what they believe in. They can settle for very few accomplishments, or long lean periods, but they need to know that certain changes are inevitable, and certain things will come to you only when they have to, no matter how hard and long you try. Quite a contrast from the patient plodder, huh?
This is why onlookers would feel that Taurus are too slow or too dull – the truth is they are in a world of their own, where everything has its own pace, and nothing needs to be hurried. Emotional security is just as important for them as economic. They make really stable relationships, and hold on to them with all their moral strength. But as we have said, they are afraid of change, and afraid of letting things go. Thus they might get really possessive at times, to the inconvenience of the companion.
However, Taurus are known to be the most attractive looking of all the twelve signs. And they happen to be very passionate, even though some might find them to be a little on the slow side. They can’t help it – they don’t like rude shocks, and always like to know the result of something before leaping into it. So in short, they are beautiful, sensual people who have great taste for the grander and more subtle things in life.

Taurus Qualities and Characteristics

Taurus is the sign of manhood, strength, stamina, perseverance and potency. You are quite calm and serene, but when bothered, you will turn wicked and dangerous. You also like your life to be stable and not perturbed with sudden changes.
You have an air of reliability and sensibility about that makes you quite valuable. You have an inherent urge to create and build stuff that is why you are impeccable when it comes to managing money, men and tasks. You are quite attracted by the luxuries that come with money and are ready to work for them. You also have a hospitable, and an epicurean side to your personality and have a tremendous urge for physical pleasure.
You are consistent with whatever they do or say, as you don’t have a tendency to change opinion; your temper is also quite distinctive – short burst with no prior caution. Even Taureans are quite moody, and like to keep themselves immersed in their work. You are the ones who get restless and mischievous when idle. You do care a lot about your family and friends. There is a double world within you, a normal world and another spiritual and enigmatic to the extreme.
Qualities that make you lucky are realistic, reliable, openhanded, and arty. Qualities that hinder your success are possessiveness, stubbornness, lethargy, and self-indulgence.

Taurus Friendship Compatibility

In friendship, Taurus are consistent and reliable. You will do your best for a friend in need, and be there for him through thick and thin. You are also honest, which means that if you are swamped at the moment and can’t help someone, you will tell him so and still make earnest suggestions that could help him. You are not one to go for new friends; you’d prefer an old and time-tested friend on any day. And that’s simply because you yourself are like that. So you are a little slow at making friends, and never rush it. But this can also be viewed as reluctance.
However, the real problem with such an approach is that when you go to a new place, and come in contact with new people, it will be long before you can form a rapport and start feeling comfortable. It’s not that you don’t like new people – it’s just that you can’t just throw your trust without making sure.
So you will definitely observe that you are slower than people you come into contact with. But you won’t really accept this fully until you have enough bitter experiences in life to make you feel that accepting it will only help you adjust better with life as it comes to you. For some people, it might not be so important to share common interests with your friends, but for you, this is not acceptable at all. You have certain subjects and activities that fascinated since you were a kid, and you need to have at least one of those interests in common with your friends. This is probably what makes you so choosy.
Your greatest strength in friendships is your readiness to help those in need. On a certain occasion, you might give a friend a shoulder to cry on, and on some other, you might do daily outdoor chores for a friend who is in great stress.

Taurus Career and Money

Taurus are very hardworking people who don’t mind giving some project endless hours without the smallest glimpse of returns or results. They are not the resilient sturdy kind who likes to work under stress with a huge load and deadlines to be met; and neither do they like working in a disturbing and noisy atmosphere. They need to choose a career wherein they are not forced to give immediate results and take sudden action, they like taking life the easy yet serious way.
Another issue with them is their tendency to put on weight. No matter how hard they work or how little they eat, they just don’t seem to be able to burn those extra calories! And this takes a toll on their work – after the afternoon lunch, they are hardly in a position to keep the drowsiness away and concentrate on their work. Not a big problem if they are able to make up for it in the morning.
Another very important issue for the Taurus while choosing a career is the security. They cannot get into a job which makes demands at their ingenuity and imagination every single moment. If they are told to constantly improve the techniques of the company, and keep finding new ways of cutting the costs, they will just not like it. They cannot life with the fact that demands of this kind on their physical and mental reserves will be kept being made for all their lives.
They’d be much happier working in the outlines drawn by others, giving their know-how and wisdom wherever necessary. So they are not made for leading a company, but for playing a supporting role – fair enough; how many do we have these days even to do that!
That being said, Taurus can make great progress in fields which require long hours of patient study. For example, drawing the detailed architectural plans of a new building based on ideas and specifications already given by others might sound a very unimaginative and tedious job. But not everyone can do it – it needs long hours of terrible concentration.

Taurus in Love and Romance

In love, when it comes to the Taurus, most people picture the charging bull. The reality is in stark contrast from that. When a Taurus feels drawn to another person, he/she will sit down, relax and try to look at the situation as objectively as possible. It’s not that they are not passionate – their passion is just overridden by their patience at this point. And once they have assured themselves that the juice is worth the squeeze, they will go right into it and try to win the person over with careful planning and charm.
And if you are a Taurean, this is where you can go wrong – you are just not ready to accept the fact that someone might really like you for what you really are! Why the planning and scheming? Why can’t you be your natural self? You will surely see that winning over someone is not always about overwhelming the person. Ultimately, the relationship will work only if the other person is ready to accept you even with all the shortcomings you have.
Sexually, Taurus are known to take time to be aroused, but once they are, there is nothing in the world that can pull them back. This is quite true, and in this department, you would be quite right in summoning that charging bull’s picture to mind. The time you take is just for a reality check – you can’t charge into such matters without being sure that you will not be hurt by being rejected.
The Taurus’ most negative characteristic is possessiveness. The more the Taurus is fond of his/her companion, the more possessive he/she is. Not many companions will be comfortable with such an attitude. And on occasions, it might happen that the partner parts ways for this reason, and the Taurus doesn’t even understand why this is happening to him/her. So your ability to charm those you like makes you a marvelous catch but just don’t try to own your companion, and everything will go fine.

Taurus in Marriage

Being a Taurus, you will work hard to make your marriage a comfortable and fruitful one. For this, you will work hard and get to a respectable position in the operational ladder of your field even before you get married. So by the time you have tied the knot, you have a pretty enviable bank balance and a good position. You have settled in your career and do not wish to do anything bold and risky, at least for the next several years. You have a home of your own in which you move with your newly wedded wife. All this is being done just to remove any sort of anxiety from your married life, and provide your wife with a stable financial atmosphere and your kids with supportive and tension-free surroundings where to grow up.
Here again, try to keep your possessive streak under control; it may feed on any kind of reason. Initially, for example, if you are a male, you might not like the fact the wife interacts with some one more than she should (according to you). Later on, when you have kids, you might not like the fact that she is not able to give you as much time as she used to. You start thinking that she doesn’t love you like she used to. That is total rubbish! Your only issue is that you have started to take the partner as a possession of yours, and don’t like the changes that happen in life thereafter. This can be checked if you force to tell yourself that the other person is not your possession; he/she is not to be owned, but just to be loved.
Now as far as your parenthood is concerned, you are not exactly the disciplinarian kind. You, at times, tend to spoil your child more than the usual – by buying new expensive toys for them, by letting them off the hook when they spoil their grades and so on. After a certain age, you might start feeling that they are out of your hand. So make amends while they are young. The weird part here is that when the kids are young, you are lenient and when they grow up, you start feeling that they do not behave properly and need to be disciplined. The truth is that you did what you had to do in their early years. And now, the generation gap is so much that you can’t go along with their ways. Just try your best and learn from them – that is all I can say!

Fiery Aries

Aries

Aries

This post is coming a lil later than promised but here it is. This is all you need to know about Ariens. Enjoy!

Aries Personality

Aries is representative of verve and energy and while many may associate a ‘me first’ attitude with Ariens, the truth is quite different from this. The ‘me first’ refers primarily to their competitiveness and their desire to be at the top of the world. Of course, the selfish aspect of their personality is true to some extent, but it can be controlled. They are known to be highly simple and straight-forward in their dealings. This is the secret behind the amazing clarity that they seem to possess regarding everyday life.
In their childhood, Ariens are characteristically hungry for success. They generally wanna be good in sports, studies and almost everything they get involved in, though there might be the odd case of an Ariean almost deliberately messing up their grades, just cause they don’t care. This attitude just gets stronger with age. In their profession, they will do all they can to get to the top. And to many, this might mean that the personal life suffers, but not to Ariens. Ariens are really attached to their family. They also make excellent partners, in a sexual as well as emotional sense. They are intent on enjoying their sex life to the fullest, which is great for their partners. This comes from the fact that they are very passionate and fervent, but they also have certain selfish tendencies which can make things sour.
Ariens frequently develop headaches because of the stresses they experience in life. Also, in their hustle and bustle, they might get careless and cause physical harm to themselves in the form of cuts and bruises. It would be advisable for Ariens to be careful while handling fire and metal objects.
Overall, Ariens are energetic, passionate beings with a knack of achieving great laurels in their field of work. They also have a pioneering side which they can seldom suppress.

Aries Qualities and Characteristics

You are aggressive, the kind of person who takes problems by the headlocks. You are as fearless as the Gods and enthusiastic and fervent to the extreme. Your sex drive is very strong and you are quite aptly, extrovert. But the drawback is in terms of your egotism. Even though you are the leader in your peer group, you lack the wisdom required in a leader.
You might also show attributes of blunt and roguish behavior and lack of pragmatism while dealing with people. However, having strong emotions and being courageous and forceful, you forge your way ahead in precarious situations. So when a new endeavor is to be undertaken, you will be the crucial person. Your approach with opposite sex is altogether aggressive and straight-on, like your approach towards life itself. You have an exceptional exuberance and stamina, and this probably originates from your quality of being your own master, but this also leads to the lack of style and grace.
You don’t talk a lot or try to justify, you just assert your supremacy and work. Now you can decide for yourself how good this can be for your leadership. You are not very social, but you are quite helpful and even gullible. May be that is why people try to take undue advantage of you and even become successful.
Qualities that make you lucky are daring, full of life, impulsive, and plain philosophy. Qualities that hinder your success are intolerance, self-seeking, envy, and inflexibility.

Aries Friendship Compatibility

Nurturing healthy and productive friendships requires not only going out and meeting new people, but more importantly, the ability to influence the other person and encourage common interests – and this comes naturally to you Ariens. You will take them to your favourite movies and sports events, show them your favourite TV shows, books and magazines, and actually stir up their interest in them even if they hardly any to start with. Energy and enthusiasm are infectious, and they are exactly what you pass on to your mates.
But there is this small problem in such matters, Aries naturally happen to be selfish (this is not always such a negative thing, let me remind you). So, when the other guy or girl makes a plan, Aries might always find something more interesting or more fun to go to. So you will definitely be tempted to cancel the previous commitment. As is the norm in such cases, you will come up with the prettiest excuses (I am sure of that) and given your forceful and vigorous nature, the other person will definitely accept it. But your friend will be hurt nonetheless, and when the same thing happens again and again, he/she will start seeing through the charm and shine.
All this is being said, not to point out your blemishes, but to encourage you to introduce all the warmth and charm in your friendships, but in the right way. Sometimes, being a good friend means being patient, irrespective of how wrong you might think your friend is. And the truth is that some day your friend will be grateful to you for that. Some might need a helping hand, while some might just need a shoulder to cry on. Whatever the case, they will not ask for something you can’t give them. When you will be in the dumps and need them, they will always be there for you. So this is a way of returning their favor before they actually do you one. After all, is this not what friendship is all about?

Aries Career and Money

The creative energy and talent of an Arien needs sufficient expression in his/her professional life as well. So an Arien needs a job that is demanding and challenging. The challenge might be of a physical kind, but most often an Arien is not content without a job with intellectual hurdles to be overcome and competition to be out-maneuvered. Ariens enjoy it especially if they get to go into uncharted territories, to explore and try out new possibilities for themselves and to pioneer some new technique or philosophy of doing things. One important thing to note about them is that they definitely go after money, but money is not everything for them. They will not be happy with a good salary, they need good, challenging work.
As might be expected of people with so much verve and energy, they will hardly consent to work in a quiet and dull atmosphere. They would want to be in some place bustling and happening, even if it produces a lot of noise and interruption. These guys are perfectly suited for fieldwork. They are for the front-end jobs – if they are in a law firm they should be fight legal battles in the court of law, if they work for a manufacturing or retailing unit, they must be showing customers around and selling them stuff. Ariens are meant for action, of whatever kind it might be. They will not sit down and work on routines and details. If you make them do that, they will cut corners and turn out to be horrible failures.
As much as Ariens like to be on the field, they also like to be in the midst of competition. The fiercer the competition, the harder they work and produce results. This is the basic reason why Ariens have a reputation for rising up to the occasion – they are comfortable only when they are fighting for every breath; normal slow life is not for them.

Aries in Love and Romance

Ariens fall into love record-breaking fast – they will be in love even before they know it. And it’s not even like a serious love-like infatuation that you’d expect to pass, it is the real passionate I’m-all-for-you kinda love. To some, it might look like they are rushing into it, but in an Arien’s mind, that is the normal speed. But all the same, how ever so much ecstatic they might feel, relative to the world they seem to be pushy. And that means they are pushy – and we all know that pushy messes things up in matters of love.
Being pushy carries on to another dimension of the relationship as well, namely the sexual. The Arien has so much passion and libido that he/she never seems to get out of the making-love-all-night-long stage. Now the thing with passion is that passion and consideration hardly go along with one another. So the partner might suffer and flinch and be unwilling to take the physical strain for so long for so many times, but the Arien just wants more and more. So the best way to curb such tendencies is to be aware of them, and talking one’s way through whenever one has a doubt whether the partner is ready to go to the same length that he/she is.
Another characteristic of their sexual personality is that the thing comes naturally to them. They have a beautiful love-instinct and know exactly how to express it. Because of their uncomplicated personalities, they always have things figured out and hardly ever have guilt-related issues after the act. The issue, however, is that they have a more than average sex-drive. Now how’s that an issue? It is an issue if the partner does not share the same amount of enthusiasm. Herein is the need to assess one’s partner and shape one’s approach accordingly to be amusing and engrossing enough for the partner. Otherwise, we come back to the problem of overexerting one’s partner.
Ariens have an unpredictable, sweet side to their persona. They have a habit of giving their loved ones small presents, for particularly no reason at all. The partner enjoys it very much and things take off in a totally new direction for that night.

Aries in Marriage

Ariens make good spouses – this is credited mainly to the passionate and enthusiastic side of their personality. They are interested domestic affairs just as much as in official ones, in an almost childlike way. You can witness this in the way they decorate their houses, buy presents for their family members and provide for them. As parents, they are neither so unattached as to pass on cleaning diapers over to the spouse, nor so over-anxious as to panic when their kid spoils his school exams. If their children do not perform in school up to their expectations, they will take things into their own hands and help them through. But Ariens are not known for their patience! They might end up saying or doing something they might regret later.
There is the general notion that Ariens are give and take in marriage. This is a horrible notion to have, but nonetheless, not totally incorrect. Here, there’s one thing all married couples need to understand. In married life, there obviously are taking periods of each partner of the marriage – periods when the other understands his/her spouse’s need gives. But when the giving period comes, the Arien is often found wanting. At this point, he/she should reassess the situation, and question himself/herself if he/she is giving all that he/she has got. Ariens have this vast reserve of fervent energy, but it’s really important for them to put it in the right place.
Again, an important problem with Ariens is their selfishness. They do things that hurt their partner, and they don’t realize it. This thoughtlessness is as natural as the selfishness, and the end outcome is that the partner expresses his/her anguish in an outburst and the Arien is totally taken by surprise. The Arien’s simple nature and way of looking at life hinders his/her ability to understand the complicated results of his/her actions. So if you are an Arien and married, you have a lot to give as well as a lot to look out for.

Have a nice weekend!

Splicing Pisces Parts

Pisces

Pisces

Continuing the zodiac series, today we have the Pisceans under the microscope. As I said previously, this series is not originally written by me. I found the articles quite interesting and did a compilation. Enjoy!

Pisces Personality

Pisceans are characterised by their emotional depth. They have such a vast reservoir of positive creative energy that they don’t even come close to realizing their true potential. They are too modest to admit their talent, and often underestimate themselves. No one has the ability to express true human emotions such as happiness, love, anger and forgiveness in his art as much as the Piscean. So he/she no doubt has talent, but there is a tremendous need for encouragement. Pisceans give their friends unconditional support when needed. They believe in the notion that a friend in need is a friend indeed. But this works both ways. They also need to be understood and helped when in need.
Pisceans are also susceptible to developing habits and then acting as if they will show themselves out. Eventually, it becomes so late that things go out of control, and the habits take a heavy toll on their personal and professional lives. Again, it is almost impossible for the Piscean to get out of such a quicksand and restore normalcy in life without the support and affection of close and loved ones. Friends and family might find this a little difficult than they might think because Pisceans tend to be a little deceptive, thinking that it is for everyone’s good. So the picture I paint is not a very rosy one – it would seem that it’s hard for the Piscean to even live normally without help. But it’s not like that. Pisceans have so much stuffed up inside them that it is hard for them to stay balanced. That’s the only reason why they need help.
In love, Pisceans fall very easily and quickly, but tend to make mistakes. And sometimes, the result is the worst. Thus, they can be summed up in one word – passionate – in life, in work, in love and everything else. Their kind and gentle side sprouts from this very passion.

Pisces Qualities and Characteristics

Pisceans have a tendency to get pulled in two opposite directions. This inhibits their decision taking capability. They are quite open-minded towards their work and personal life, and demonstrate an immaculate insight and vision in material, technical and spiritual aspects.
You have a particular artistic sophistication, which means that you have creativity with a polished edge. Your special characteristic is your love for beautiful things in life, and also a particular day-dreaming and inconsistent trait. You are too soft hearted and willingly help anyone in distress; this might also lead to problems to you because of your inability to say ‘no’. Even with the introspective and intuitive edge, you are moody and restless at times.
Some depressions and dissatisfactions might lead you to pity yourself and escape from the distresses in life through drug addiction or drinking. You have a great inner strength, you only need to exhume it. You share your resources with others, even money, and think that others should do the same. The boundaries of possession are sometimes invisible or altogether meaningless to Pisceans, thus turning some into forgers and embezzlers.
Qualities that make you lucky are caring, progressive, benevolent, and imaginative. Qualities that hinder your success are undecided, casual, not practical, and easygoing.

Pisces Friendship Compatibility

If you are a piscean, you will be a friend cherished and loved by all your friends. Not only are you ready to put a great deal of energy and time into the friendship, but you are also ready to listen and give a shoulder to cry on to your friends. You are always willing to make sacrifices for the sake of your friends. You make their problems your problems. So the good friends will appreciate all you do, and reciprocate in full measure, but there will always be the other ones looking out and trying to take advantage. And unfortunately, you are one of the gullible kind – you find it really hard to make out the honest kind of friends from the opportunists.
Now there is this creative and artistic side of yours we talked about. This means that you like being encouraged by your friends. This works the other way around too – you find it easier to make friends with those who can take interest and sympathise with your interests, emotions and impulses. All and all, you naturally are inclined to get closer to someone who is one the same ground as you. In the whole broader picture, you are helping yourself gain in confidence and achieve whatever it is you want in life. There is the negative side to this too – you need friends who have interests similar to yours. So they might sometimes tend to feign interest in things that they couldn’t care less about – this might lead to awkward or heartbreaking moments.
Pisces, however need to make a conscious effort to get their personal life straight. You tend to be late on appointments, and then appear flustered and embarrased when you arrive. You are of course an excellent friend, one to be treasured, but your mistakes may get a little too irritating for your friends for them to be able to forgive you. A little discipline here would not go amiss. You are a great friend, but you also need to make it easy for your friends to go along with you.

Pisces Career and Money

Pisceans have a very characteristic set of needs and motivating factors, which seems quite different from those of other sun-signs. So, they need to take special care in choosing their field of work so that they can work towards the fulfillment of these needs, and making the most out of their professional lives. Pisceans have a strong sense of vocation, then need to put their heart and soul into their work. And when they work with this sort of dedication, they can be terribly let down by any sort of obstruction. They can work with very little pay, as long as they are allowed to derive the most from their job.
Another very important aspect of the Piscean way of life is believing in something, and making sacrifices for it. I have said that the Piscean can give up his/her career in order to look after the children, but now I say that the Piscean is also capable of sacrificing his/her hopes of getting married and raising a family for an important social cause, or a career in some form of art that he/she might be dedicated to. All the Piscean kindness and warmth is seen in their work.
This of course is a very noble and ideal way of life, but some Pisceans sometimes get caught up in the rat-race of life. They start doing what everyone else does, running after money and power and pelf like everyone else. But as and when they do it, they will surely realize that this way of life is not for their benefit. The hustle and bustle, and the noisy, tense atmosphere of a typical workplace is not the ideal hunting ground for them. They need to be left on their own, with no demands or deadlines to be met, and they will come up with the best, not with an aim of impressing anyone or accumulating anything, but just for the common good. So works the Piscean mind, and this ought to be understood most of all by the bosses, who tend to force things on everyone.
A special note on the great creative potential of the Piscean – most often it is wasted, unless backed by a very strong impulse. But even when there is the impulse, the talent needs to be nurtured and encouraged, lest it be lost in due course.

Pisces in Love and Romance

In this matter, Pisces are ruled by instinct and emotion. Pisces are not one to sit in a judge’s chair and think about the partner-to-be objectively – you are too romantic for that. What you do is rush straight into it, and think later. Ill advised, but when it comes to love, there is no bound to your emotions, you just cannot control yourself. This impulsive nature is greatly loved by all those you couple with, at least as long as the two of you are together. And this is how it works – when you are young, you have all the impulse and verve in the whole world and ‘leap before you look’ would seem to be the motto of your love life; but as life goes on, with all the cuts and bruises you have suffered in the name of love, you will learn to be cautious.
This issue eclipses all others in relationship matters for you. And the answer to this problem is simple – try to think practically. I know it’s hard for you, so whenever you feel a strong impulse, just count to ten – relax! When the situation tends to get a little too hot to handle and it feels like all that talk about self restrain is just not working for you, try to let go of it – take a time out. This is not the same as running away from your demons. Time has a way of clearing the mist and removing the cobwebs. When you are not in the proximity of your ‘lover’, you will be free from blinding emotions, and be able to think clearly about your coherence with him/her, and if it has a future.
Now, if you end up with the wrong person, it will be difficult for you to realize that in time and make amends. But why should you end up with the wrong guy/gal? An important factor here is your too-good nature. You are willing to go to any level, and make any sacrifice in order to make the relationship work. This attitude might attract many a people who are not really worthy of .. you! So there are quite a lot many things you need to learn, I’m afraid, the hard way. Good luck!

Pisces in Marriage

When it comes to marriage, I am assuming that the you, the Piscean, have found the right one for you after a certain number of trials and errors. Congratulations! Now you need to learn the ABC’s of married life. And the A is – Always maintain your identity in spite of the marriage. If it’s important for one to maintain his/her identity in a relationship, it’s even more so when it comes to marriage. There are those who say that after the marriage, there is no place for ‘I’ – the two I’s turn into a ‘WE’. But they are not you; you are you and you know that it is very easy for you to mould into your partner’s personality and become his/her mouthpiece. You can forget your own likes and dislikes to please your partner; and as much as you may seem to be doing all this out of your own free will, it is not good for your mental well-being. Suppressing your ambitions and pleasures is not good after a certain level.
On a lighter note, you are very easy to live with, even with your sometimes unorganizedand untidy way of life. Your partner may accuse you of being too casual about things that ought to be taken seriously, and not be totally wrong. But that’s you – you are not deliberately negligent, you just think there are more important things to do.
When it comes to parenthood, you are not negligent of your duties at all – you make sure you give your kids every opportunity to learn and perform. But you have a way of spoiling your kids – not by giving them to much material stuff and spending too much on them, but by giving them too much love. Nothing wrong with that, except for the fact that in your eyes, they can do no wrong. So when they actually do something wrong, like spoiling their grades, may be, then it comes as a rude shock to you. So with time, you need to learn how to teach your child a little self-discipline and the virtues of hardwork and honesty.

All About Aquarius

Aquarius in Short

Aquarius in Short

My zodiac series (starting today) contains a collection of articles from a website (I really can’t remember now.) They’re not originally written by me. I just found them interesting and I did a compilation to share with everyone. Naturally, I started with my own sign so I hope you enjoy reading this and see if all Aquarians you know have some of these qualities.

Aquarius Personality

Aquarians are probably the most individualistic and strong kind of people. Now you can read that as pigheaded and rebellious, but that’s your wish (that’s not to say that being either of these is always a wrong thing). And as is the way of the world, the distinctive and strong in character are the ones followed by one and all; so this is what leaders are made of. Now things are not all rosy and jolly for Aquarians. If I had to describe an Aquarian in the least possible number of words, I won’t classify him as a leader or pioneer, I’d call him a walking bag of contradictions – coz that’s what he most definitely is. They do pioneering work, they go against the tide and try to change how the society thinks about something, yet they themselves find it very hard to change their mind on something once they have made up a notion.
So this difficulty in modifying oneself and one’s beliefs becomes more and more noticeable and prominent with maturity; an Aquarian might need a lot of help and encouragement in coming up to prevalent times and practices. However, another important thing that makes them such good leaders is their cool temperament and emotional control – you could not find a person better at taking affirmative action in practically testing circumstances. Also, these guys are really understanding and do not find it very difficult to suffer contravenes of fellows. That is why they make such good friends.
Another enigmatic aspect of their persona is their glamorous yet distant kind of vibe in relationships. They like their freedom and are not very welcoming to change, at least in this department. So, an Aquarian might face a lot many conflicts in his love life, even though he/she might be a terribly romantic person. Aquarian children may seem to be a little too introvert and aloof of the world, but that’s normal, in fact, that’s their thing! Physically, Aquarians may often suffer from circulation-related health issues, so it is really important for them to keep warm in cold weather.

Aquarius Qualities and Characteristics

Your zodiac sign is symbolized by the bearer of the jug of water, you provide the spiritual and intellectual health drink to the society and people around you. And the water has a tendency to flow ahead, so that you are forward looking, and optimistic, and think only in terms of growing inward and outward possession.
You dispense knowledge, advice and even material possessions to those around you, who solicit your help and emotional support. You are the sign of brilliance and creativity, but these are not without the sufferings and sacrifices. You have a distinctive, in fact, a peculiar character – you are knowledgeable and intelligent yet hesitant to take important decisions or to give your opinion where it counts most. You are quite philanthropist, at least in thought, and have a great sense of humor.
You are tolerant and don’t mind others poking fun at you. You are valuable to the world as you are a giver rather than a taker, you give hope and inspiration. Aquarians are amiable, charming and intuitive, but can get eccentric and unruly at times. They are also slow and shaky starters, taking their own time, but half way through, they might change their mind, irritating those with them. In your love life, you will have really good experiences, but some setback will keep piercing your heart at all times.
Qualities that make you lucky are honesty, truthfulness, innovative, and insightful. Qualities that hinder your success are inconsistency, unusual, rebellious, and cautious.

Aquarius Career and Money

The individuality I keep saying the Aquarians try to protect in personal and professional spheres is not for nothing; actually it reflects a very lovely trait of theirs. They are known for their distinctive mark – the originality and difference they bring about to their work. These people first make sure they know what is expected from them in any task before actually taking up that task. Then they go about their work in a distinctive way. It’s not that they have no respect for the rules; they just wanna do things their way, without any intervention. So the superiors need to stay away from their area and not worry about the quality of output, because it will be assuredly top notch. They are very reliable and will give each task their most, unless you stick your head in and tell them it’s not the way to do it.
Generally speaking, Aquarians are not too involved in petty organizational politics and quarrels. If they are ill-treated, they rise above personal battle and try to resolve issues with their flair and ability. If they have a promotion or increment coming their way, they accept it with poise and the confidence that they can take up the added responsibility. So whatever might be a situation, they have the ability of not getting distracted and go about their work in a simple and straightforward fashion. To add to this, they have a great amount of resilience. They can practically work all day. The only thing is that they will prefer taking a coffee break or doing nothing at all instead of doing something that they consider to be a waste of time, a petty formality.
All these qualities make Aquarians stand out in a crowd – their dedication, their concentration, and above all their different and sometimes peculiar way of working. These things come very naturally to them, so they get noticed by superiors without actually realizing it.

Aquarius Friendship Compatibility

The individuality of an Aquarian might lead you think that they do not make such good friends. But the reality is far from that. Many astrologers will attest to the fact that Aquarians are the best kind of material for making a best friend. They really understand you and have an excellent listening ability. And their best quality is their willingness to help you for simply nothing in return. They don’t help people out of affection, or respect, or pity – it just comes naturally to them, helping someone just seems to be the right thing to do. They have a strong helping, humanitarian character, and most of them actively participate in community service and charity work. A psychoanalyst will tell you that they satisfy their need for self importance by helping others, and being of use to the society.
And some of them might go out of their way in doing that. For example, they might help other parents out by taking care of their children. They might teach poor kids and do some kind of community service by joining NGOs. So they make very resourceful, understanding and faithful friends capable of keeping the ties intact for many years. They also have the ability of resuming relationships after a long period of separation, with almost as much warmth.
Aquarians are also known for being assertive and speaking out their mind without any qualms. They suggest ways of making things better and take decisive action in that direction, to the benefit of most friends. This makes them very good members of societies, clubs and associations. They will do a great deal for the group, simply because the impulse of enjoying the camaraderie of people you share a common interest with is too great within you. They will make great presidents and chairmen, and will be looked up to for their impartial and impersonal judgment. They will also make up quite well with the politics and drama of groups, because of their coolheaded nature and impersonal judgment.
The problem that most Aquarians face in friendships is due to their individualism and need for fresh air. They don’t like to have their freedom jeopardized to any extent, and most of their friends are aware of that fact. For the friends, the best thing to do is to remain at a certain distance until allowed in, and the best thing for the Aquarian to do is to curb such tendencies.

Aquarius in Love and Romance

With the glamour and shine you have got, it will not be very difficult for Aquarians to turn strangers into acquaintances and acquaintances into something more. A lot of love and love-making will come your way if you are an Aquarian and you will get the opportunity to enjoy it to the fullest. And my advice to you in this matter would be to grab those opportunities and make use of them to the fullest without any second thoughts, because once you start having those second thoughts and actually sitting down and thinking them through, hard times are bound to come by. Each courtship or relationship ultimately comes to that one question, but in case of you, this relationship is a little too critical.
As I have already said, an Aquarian is really protective of his freedom and way of life. A serious relationship will mean taking that giant leap of giving up one’s normal life for someone else, and learning to make decisions with the ‘we perspective’ instead of the ‘I’. Such a huge commitment will take a huge amount of love and devotion. So most of the time, this scenario just leads to a break up. But still, if the relationship persists, then the partner will have to understand the emotional needs of the Aquarian and mend his/her life and needs accordingly. This is quite difficult even for an Aquarian (remember we talked about Aquarians being very understanding and supportive) – we are talking about partners making peace with the fact that they will never be able to play a part in their companion’s life as big as they’d like to.
So the partner requires to be understanding and cool-minded and one with interests that the Aquarian can identify with. The ground truth is that for a relationship to work, having common interests and aspirations is just as important as understand one’s companion. As for the Aquarian, he/she has got a penchant for theatricals, and a great talent at entertaining the companion and making the occasion a very special one for him/her. This will make your love life very colorful and fulfilling.

Aquarius in Marriage

Aquarians are the most faithful and devoted of all in a marriage, except for the fact that they might have a few problems in accepting the new sort of life that the marriage will have to offer. Aquarians are not at all possessive and in no way consider their spouse to be an object to be owned. So they are cool with any sort of jealousy-related issues. This is because they have a great amount of respect and adoration for their loved ones, and respect their values, emotions and moral standards even though they might not approve of them.
Aquarians find it hard to give up their individuality in the marriage. They find it hard to let go of their identity for a greater cause. For example, when the Aquarian wife becomes a mother, she might find it hard to give up her profession and career and get involved in tending the kids for the first few years, without any bitterness. Even if she accepts to do it, she might just be waiting for the child to become old enough to go to school so that she can rebuild her career. Not that this is a bad thing, but the thing is that parenting is not something that can be done with a feeling of obligation. This is not so much of an issue of the Aquarian husband turning into a father, because fathers do not so much have to end their careers for tending the baby. But he actually might be the odd one to step up and take the responsibility of tending the child in order to give his wife the opportunity to continue.
Aquarians probably make the best parents, it sort of comes to them naturally, at least some aspects of it. They do not find it difficult in any way to stimulate and create interest in their children and stir them to be involved in some sort of group activity. The home will be a place of really interesting conversation, and not just noises from the TV or the Videogame. But the stagnant set of beliefs that Aquarians possess can prove to be a serious setback. It might be really difficult for the parents to acknowledge the generation gap and act sensibly.
