Note on the left of the inner wheel is the number "1". In the outer wheel is the symbol for Aries.On the outside of the wheel is the word Aries. The name and symbol of each sign proceeds in order around the wheel.
Taurus, the second sign, has a "negative" polarity.
Polarity alternates each sign around the wheel. Polarity is explained below.
Energy is conditioned by flowing through 'images' which are themselves a condition of energy. These 'images' are more properly called Archetypes.1
"FOREWORD--Archetypes are created by archetypal forces working in the four lower Regions of Concrete Thought. Archetypes live, move, and create as a mechanical Appliance made by man works--but without reason. When the archetype is built it is set into vibration, and as long as it continues to vibrate the form which it sustains continues to live. When the archetype ceases to vibrate the form disintegrates."2
The basic polarity is hard to describe. Life and Form, energy and substance, masculine and feminine, yang and yin, positive and negative, aggressive and passive are all word pairs used to point at this basic polarity. In essence, the odd numbered signs (1, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11) are relatively outgoing or extroverted while the even numbered signs (2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12) are relatively introverted. Usually this sign division is ignored unless a horoscope has a very marked dominance of one type of sign occupied.
|The signs are divisible into groups of three signs:|
The middle month of each season is a fixed sign. As the word fixed implies, these signs, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius, are fixed in nature, things begin slowly here and stop slowly, their affairs are persistent.
The last month of each season is a mutable sign, Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. Affairs of these signs are changable, flexible, more mental in nature.
It is well to see some planets in each of these three sign types to give initiative, persistence and flexability to the life.
