Lifestyle column: the Zodiac and Family Bonds

The Zodiac and Family Bonds: 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 entertainment, 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.

Family Bonds for Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

The Family? You are certainly reliable when it comes to shake it up and boost its energy, both literally and figuratively. Granted, you are very individualistic, and therefore, in principle, you do not need the group’s approval to live the type of life you choose. You may be blamed for this, as well as for some abruptness also.

However, your relatives and close friends are glad that with you they know where they stand. You are so straightforward that you manage to deal with any issue and solve it after a thorough discussion. In addition, you are a motivating element, full of liveliness and joie de vivre. Children in particular appreciate your dynamism, because it allows them to take life as an adventure.

In any case, you would be the last person to refrain them from doing something, out of excessive caution. On the contrary, you know how to encourage them. Your spouse also may value your unwavering faith. It is only with older people and babies that you must put in adaptation efforts.

The general opinion is that you are appreciated because you are easy-going and in good spirits, except when you throw one of your mythic yet rare tantrums. Indeed, people should be careful, for you are unforgiving! If your sister borrowed a cashmere sweater ten years ago and ruined it, there is a risk that she will hear about it again and again!

Except for this detail, you have a host of qualities. Your culinary talents remain for instance an undeniable asset, as well as your willingness to share. When you cook, you are never putt off by the number of guests, as you tend to think that "the more the merrier". Your servings are large and reflect the true love you extend to your folks.

A real will-o’-the-wisp, since you were a child you have developed a special feeling towards your siblings. If you are lucky enough to have a twin, then it is the jackpot. Indeed, you are seeking some sort of alter ego who would be your double, as thick as thieves, your mirror. Although you are or have been an only child, this is the kind of relations you enjoy establishing.

Words are of course essential. Whether with your parents or your children, you pay utmost attention to dialogue and to getting their approval. People often say that you are an eternally young “parent-friend” and that your tastes come from your constantly aroused curiosity.

On the other hand, you loathe static situations. Therefore, you see no reason why you should always spend your vacations or the festive season in the same location. You are eager to allow some fresh breeze in.

The family is a sacred principle! You are a real sponge, and the well-being of the members of your family is more important than anything else, especially regarding the people who need your protection. You tenderly care for babies, children, or ancestors.

Whether it is about preparing an afternoon snack for the children, spending time with a grandmother who is bored in a nursing home, or telling a tale, you are always there for them, and you gladly devote yourself. In some cases, this is what constitutes one of your reasons for living...

Be careful not to become overwhelmed, even though you enjoy being the guardian of traditions and memories. It is at home, or on your initiative, that everybody gets together, for instance for celebrations. You recall the anecdotes which cement the family cell. You always keep old photos, that other people have forgotten, and that you gather in an album. And also the family tree explaining why you are here today.

With your family, you are proud to come across as an enviable person. You believe that you must have a nice dwelling with a large garden where your children, who encounter no education issue, frolic. Your parents also are perfect; they are the models you are pleased to impress with your own successes.

Although your ambitions are great and sometimes a bit naïve, you use your energy and your strong character to achieve your goals. You are often the prevailing element, the sun around which everyone revolves, regardless of your place within the family cell.

It is certain that if this ideal image is thwarted by reality, you may be hurt. Therefore, you may have to learn to distance yourself from the norms promoted by your society. What matters is to be happy in your family, whether it is a traditional one or not.

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

Family Bonds for Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

As far as the family cell is concerned, your focus is mainly on the organisation of ordinary tasks, on responsibilities, and on commitment. You are reliable when you must prepare the list of errands based on the persons present, arrange appointments with a medical practitioner, or send out invitations.

Those who do not understand you may have the feeling that you deal with these ties without being more demonstrative than with your colleagues for instance. Indeed, it is most unlikely that you throw your arms around your children’s neck, allow yourself to cry, or wear your heart on your sleeve.

But when they get to know you better, the subtlest people can see that this is how you commit yourself. You consider that reliability and seriousness are of the utmost importance. You do not hesitate to take crucial decisions: destination of the vacations, parental authority, or pocket money. You are an expert in all this!

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

Family Bonds for Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

Your family members rely on you when it is necessary to iron out problems and thus, to solve conflicts. For within your home, discord may break out for trivial reasons or for old and fierce quarrels. In both cases, you are the little dove of peace... With your benevolence, your gentleness, and your communication skills, you naturally endeavour to put everybody at ease.

Beware of two pitfalls: forgetting your own wishes, and being kindly but seriously swallowed up by your close friends and relatives. Moreover, do not be afraid to sit on the fence or to display authority.

It must be acknowledged that your great qualities enable you to avert clashes, or even to start new relationships. You are the Sugar Uncle/Auntie, since it is with you that people prefer to spend their leisure time. Incidentally, you have a real knack, with sheer subtlety, for leaving chores to other people.

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

Family Bonds for Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

Of course, you find "family secrets" fascinating. Come on, there always is one! And should it seem that this is not the case, you manage to create your own conundrum. Thus, yes, it may occur that you are flabbergasted: a hidden brother or sister born from a non-official relationship, an illegitimate parentage.

Anything spicy, scandalous, or related to money matters may be part of the picture. Inheritance issues often prove to be huge and to involve your feelings.

One of the other problems which may be of concern is your proneness to jealousy. You suffer from the fact that you are not your parents’ favourite child, or that your son or your daughter is spreading his/her wings. You need to fight these quite paranoiac tendencies and learn to let go. Because if you understand them, they constitute valuable tokens of your deep attachment to your dear folks.

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

Family Bonds for Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

Your ideal concept of the family is the tribe. It may include numerous and various members. What matters most is that they follow you in your nomadic wanderings. Indeed, it is out of the question to become rooted just because it would be more practical or more stable. You cherish different values of course.

Whatever your scenario may be, you often manage to impose it. At a young age, you pack your bags and remain in touch using Skype. You may also welcome people who are at the other end of the world, and who are fond of you. Your parents will have to get used to it. Later, you may become able to adopt children coming from faraway countries. In any case, you do not find this principle shocking.

Since you are a bon viveur, what you appreciate most is a large and merry company gathered around a table in order to revivify slackened ties. Among your main qualities, it must be underlined that the physical and psychological well-being of your loved ones is a matter dear to your heart.

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

Family Bonds for Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

You deem that family is synonymous with responsibilities. This is why you to may wait quite a while before starting a family. You prefer to first get a good job, as people would say in the old days. Furthermore, you advocate a strict upbringing and parents showing authority, especially regarding education, on which you do not budge an inch.

You are also willing to perpetuate your parents’ values, even your ancestors’, for whom you display absolute respect. You are reliable when it comes to being faithful to them and to offer your help even though it implies gruelling efforts.

However, you cannot stand to be taken for a ride. Reprisals may last a long time and be terrible. You do not hesitate to cut off all ties if you are betrayed. Having said this, you often come across as a model, because despite your coldness, people are impressed by your dignified and classy behaviour.

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

Family Bonds for Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

Family traditions? You readily send them flying. Regardless of the generation to which you belong, your behaviour is quite similar to what sociologists have observed in the sixties, i.e. you are rebellious and against any form of coercion.

More recently, you may have become the kind of person who is militantly in favour of legalising same-sex marriage. Moreover, you are open to various sorts of adoption, for they offer you a wider scope of ways to consider parenthood. In any case, you loathe the patriarchal structures that you deem smothering and belonging to a bygone era.

You real thing is friendship... Therefore, you will try all sorts of mixes among buddies and family members, including during traditional celebrations such as Christmas. In some cases, you may even leave everybody to lend a hand to non-profit organisations.

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

Family Bonds for Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

Your concept of the family is necessarily vague and wide. Should the case occur, you welcome without prejudice all newcomers, sons-in-law, daughters-in-law, cousins, and even your parents’ friends. Once they have entered your inner circle, you make no difference between them and your closest friends and relatives.

Nevertheless, like everything else, your feelings set the tone. It is with some passivity that you let people come to you; friendship develops on intangible bases. It is "make-or-break".

For instance, the fact to attend a concert and to be stirred in unison, or simply to lounge around a nice chimney fire, holding a glass of good wine, makes you comfortable, if the person in your company also enjoys all this. Owing to your acute antennas, you feel if you are appreciated. Usually at ease within a group, you do not mind having numerous siblings.
