Lifestyle column: Ecology and the Zodiac

Disclaimer: with astrology, it is possible to decipher our behaviour or to get a glimpse of the future. This is a theory which cannot be systematically tested. On the other hand, one may wish to follow an easier path, which puts into practice the principles listed in astrology textbooks. In a way, this is precisely the type of practical exercises that we suggest in this Lifestyle column.

We recommend that you follow our advice with both a light and observing mind. Beyond Ecology, the aim is to understand how each of us behaves in various fields; thus, we can better define and fathom, by deduction, how we have developed our natal predispositions. In addition, why wouldn't we be able to guess the talent(s) which we could harness in the future, according to our astrological profile.

The following information is given for signs in their purest form. Depending on the case, it is advisable that you check your planetary dominant or the sign of your Ascendant, the position, quality and aspects of the significators of the area involved, and if applicable, the position of the planets associated with it. For instance, for family affairs, examine the 4th House and its ruler, as well the Moon; for romance, examine the 5th House and its ruler, as well as Venus, etc.

The large number of books we have read, and more particularly, the experience we have drawn from the study of thousands of charts, urge us to be cautious. However, we thought that it may be interesting to provide a few concrete indications, which will turn out to be accurate, quite often.

Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

Ecology for Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

In ecology like in everything, you are the first one to take initiatives. You go it alone because you feel that collective decisions entail gruelling processes. And yet, the planet is on fire! As if by analogy with the element of your sign, global warming is at the core of your concern. Since you are not too wimpy, you agree to adopt a less sophisticated lifestyle. You believe so much in solar energy that you are ready to proselytise for it and to have your roof covered with photovoltaic panels. In the area of electricity, you prefer natural light, you avoid having too many lampshades or curtains, and you choose low-voltage bulbs. You have no problem putting an extra pullover on, and turning the heating down. But doing without your car may be a terrible wrench for you, since you enjoy moving about fast and well. Or you could run across the city!

Taurus, Taurus rising, Venus dominant, or strong 2nd House

Ecology for Taurus, Taurus rising, Venus dominant, or strong 2nd House

Since you appreciate the healthy joys that nature offers, you are an excellent candidate for environmental preservation. Moreover, you do not content yourself with empty speeches. You are determined to take action in a concrete and dramatic way. You may start with the insulation of your house. It is well-known that when it is inadequate, it causes heat loss, which results in high energy consumption. Even though you do not seem to be thrifty, the possibility of wasting fuel oil disturbs you. Additional clues may be found in short food supply chains. You grow your own vegetables, and you are cautious about the quality of anything you eat. Pests and hormone-treated meat will certainly not end up in your plate.

Gemini, Gemini rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 3rd House

Ecology for Gemini, Gemini rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 3rd House

In the field of ecology, you can easily take advantage of your innate curiosity and your communication talent to convince the members of your entourage. Indeed, you are the first one to learn about major meetings, such as for instance the conference on climate scheduled to take place in Paris, the COP 21. Well-informed, you bear in mind every challenge and every short-term obligation. Meanwhile, you take action at the individual level. As an Air sign person, you believe in wind power. Harnessing the force of the wind is an idea you find exciting. Although it is true that this option has a detrimental effect on landscapes, it is still preferable to nuclear power or fossil fuels. Because your bronchi are fragile, you often feel the consequences of climate change. Therefore, you are in favour of traffic restriction when ozone levels are high.

Cancer, Cancer rising, the Moon dominant, or strong 4th House

Ecology for Cancer, Cancer rising, the Moon dominant, or strong 4th House

It is primarily at home that you tackle environmental issues. A responsible parent, you are eager to pass on good habits to your children so that they become exemplary in this regard. Because you are willing to bequeath a planet in good condition, you are alarmed by scientific reports on climate warming. Among the measures you can take, you may get involved in sustainable management: recycling strikes a chord with you, you who enjoy breathing new life into everything. Besides, you are not a compulsive consumer, and you keep a particularly watchful eye on traceability. You need to be reassured about clothing manufacturing as well as about food chain. Whereas it is hard for you to take showers and to give up the pleasure of baths, you readily collect rainwater.

Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

Ecology for Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

To win you over, one should tell you that you are indispensable instead of lecturing you on ecology and demanding that you save up. Nothing is sadder and more boring than living a less lavish lifestyle. On the other hand, you are persuaded that solar energy has a bright future, of course. You are a keen supporter of the idea that this renewable energy must be promoted, and you are happy to learn that existing technologies can produce it even in Northern regions. Since your sign is also associated with leisure, try to set an example when you are on holiday. On the beach, you should ensure that you do not leave any rubbish behind you, and even better, if you are fond of sea scooters or of boats, try to lower their pollution. If you travel by road, choose a hybrid car.

Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

Ecology for Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

Often a sustainable environment pioneer, you are among the first people who adopted several small, daily, and simple acts. Since then, they have become second nature to you, which is totally in line with your temperament. To begin with, you are now an expert on the topic of waste sorting. You salvage organic garbage to make compost, you dispose of glass separately, and you recycle used batteries. You go so far as to bring old medicines to the neighbouring chemist’s. You never hesitate to switch off all lamps behind you, and to lower the heating or to insulate your home efficiently. You prefer short distribution channels, and you consume what is in season. You deem that the snobbery which consists in behaving like a spoiled brat is quite silly, given the condition of the planet. You are rather frugal, and you are fond of a lifestyle devoid of luxury. You are mindful not to overuse the facilities of our modern world, because you know that natural resources are exhaustible.

Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

Ecology for Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

An extremely civilised person, you hate polluted places, and you are accustomed to get rid of you garbage safely or to curtail the inconveniences you may cause. However, you are reluctant to go any further when it comes to leading a simpler life. Giving up foam baths or making your own compost is not too exciting. But you pay attention to quality labels when you shop. Fair trade is your major concern because you want to ascertain that your personal comfort is not detrimental to disadvantaged groups. When you buy cosmetics, remember the chemicals you must steer clear of. You are interested in big conferences on climate, such as the 2015 Paris COP 21, just to remain attuned to the society in which you live. In this area also, you expect that everyone will get a fair treatment, and that all agreements will be ratified by as many countries as possible. It is also a factor of peace worldwide.

Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

Ecology for Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

Due to your inborn qualities, your ecological conscience can find an ideal outlet if you come to grips with any sort of waste. Sewages are your priority. You know that it is now possible to take advantage of used mud instead of incinerating them like it has been the habit for ages. To consider them as a resource is typical of your sign. On a personal level, you avoid the plastic packets or bags which harm the environment for hundreds of years. You do not hesitate to refuse all non-essential things, such as for instance ads in your letter box. You feel that the debauchery of public lightning, with neon lamps on night and day, is shocking. At home, you prefer low consumption bulbs, or you opt for torches or candles. Indeed, some degree of darkness has never disturbed a pure Scorpio. In the city, you expect the local authorities to implement more sophisticated systems such as presence sensors.

Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

Ecology for Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

In the past, you would consider that ecologists’ warnings were unfounded. Your natural optimism had prompted you to turn a deaf ear and to pursue your path. Nevertheless, you who enjoy roaming the planet, you ended up being moved by many harrowing scenes: natural species dying, glaciers melting rapidly, tropical forests shrinking. Once convinced, you look at the issue at the world scale. You know that developed countries cannot afford to ignore the risks threatening poor regions. Although you bank on diplomacy, you are not afraid to take action. With your Sun in a dual sign, you seek to combine the useful with the pleasant. You may start by installing a beautiful fireplace to heat your house. Biomass is a form of energy which suits Sagittarius best. You wholly respect the natural treasures you come across when you travel.

Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

Ecology for Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

You fully understand that sustainable development is a long-term struggle. It requires daily efforts, the results of which you may not see in your lifetime. Nonetheless, this does not put you off. Your opinion is that the advances of geothermal science, which gets the heat from the earth, are highly valuable. Even though you acknowledge that drilling deeply into the subsoil has drawbacks, you are fascinated by the possibility to produce energy with this method. Other approaches aiming at basic savings should be explored: at work, where you spend numerous hours for the sake of your career, you are careful not to squander paper, and you disconnect your IT devices. You do not use the water fountain’s plastic cups, and you do without the air con system whenever you feel that it is pointless. At home, you can easily live a Spartan life, restraining your needs.

Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

Ecology for Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

A keen ecological activist, you follow closely the sustainable development challenges at the global level. You impatiently wait for the moment when men will become conscious and capable of a real mutation with a view to creating a better world. And you walk the talk. You even calculate your personal carbon footprint! You were among the first people who cared for air quality. Greenhouse gases are your enemy, and you advocate soft mobility. You are glad to join a movement such as Greenpeace, or to distribute in the street fliers aiming at raising public awareness. In the most radical cases, you are prepared to experiment innovative solutions, even though they affect your comfort: you opt for dry toilets, and you put in a heat pump in your house. You are certain that collaborative economy may enable you to curb human consumption in a friendly way matching your sign.

Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

Ecology for Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

With transiting Neptune back in your sign since February 2012, environmental conscience has gained ground. However, you know that the measures adopted are far from being sufficient. Born with the Sun in a Water sign, you are mainly preoccupied by the state of oceans. You are upset to learn that a sixth continent has emerged, that it is made of nearly seven million tons of plastic, and drifting in the South Pacific. With your sensitivity, you worry about the quality of shores too, and you participate in collective beach cleaning operations. Although the principles of sustainable development appeal to you, you often fear that the extent of the task required is too huge. Shake yourself up, and do not behave passively. Imagine small eco-friendly deeds such as not letting the tap water run uselessly. In addition, recycling is a concept you find attractive.
