Lifestyle column: the Zodiac behind the wheel

The Zodiac and the Zodiac behind the wheel: 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.

the Zodiac behind the wheel for Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

You are delighted to take the wheel. In your mind, it is mainly related to what people consider sport driving. You are the king of shooting off, and you leave people behind in their starting-blocks. Steve McQueen is an Aries, and like him, you fancy yourself racing at Le Mans circuit... For once, you can put your responsiveness to good use, so why go without? Besides, your reflexes are also your strong point. Therefore, you may be seen skilfully overtaking slower drivers. However, it is preferable not to listen to you in your car, because you tend to curse at those you deem hopeless. You beep the horn very often, “to be helpful”, as you explain. Aries is the only one who is able to damage it, probably owing to constant use. Beware of speeding, of course. Control your ardour! As for the cars you like, your tastes incline towards a convertible, hair fluttering in the wind, such as an Alfa Romeo, or a Porsche Turbo, the myth being definitely a red Ferrari.

the Zodiac behind the wheel for Taurus, Taurus rising, Venus dominant, or strong 2nd House

You enjoy the prospect of driving on Sundays along country roads. Since you care for your comfort, you are fond of solid and cosy saloons with leather seats, good suspension, and an engine both quiet and powerful. You also need a big boot, as you always have loads of luggage, especially food supplies. Having said this, one must admit that you are a careful but intransigent driver. If you believe that you are within your rights, motorists must give in. You engage the clutch when you feel like it, and you are able to block the overtaking lane if you feel that you go at a correct speed. You think that people drive dangerously and that you are doing them a service by forcing them to slow down! Safety is a theme dear to your heart. It is out of the question to risk your life with a bad car, on dangerous roads, or in awful weather. On the other hand, you gladly play classical music so as to get away. You would need a beautiful Cadillac or a Lexus.

You have the reputation of being a good driver, which is partially true. There is nothing wrong with your resourcefulness, which is manifest in the itineraries you choose and the way you handle the traffic, smartly avoiding its jams. And you are a champion at negotiating tight bends! You also know how to snake your way through the lanes, and you reverse into a parking space, even downtown, in the most unexpected ones. Some Geminis can even displace a road sign, or use their Press card to enter restricted areas. In case of problem, you do not shirk from getting your hands dirty. Besides, you do not hesitate to start a conversation with a mechanic, a petrol pump attendant, or other drivers, about any topic. However, you may be distracted or nervous behind the wheel. Therefore, this is the point you ought to be cautious about. Owing to your profile, the best choice would be an urban car such as a Fiat Punto, a Toyota Yaris or a New Beetle, in brief, a fun and unisex car, but packed with accessories.

If it were up to you, you would not drive a lot. But since your family commitments are your priority, you accept to transport people and goods. For once, your prosaic approach leads you to consider purchasing a minivan, at the back of which you can easily fix a child seat, and in which your older children feel comfortable. For them, you may even go for an interior fitted with TV screens. Your own demands mainly concern security. You prefer reliable cars which have successfully passed crash tests, with state-of-the-art safety equipment. Airbags, belt pretensioners, ABS, or electronic stability programmes, are highly important to you. Looking for good road-holding capability? A Renault Espace, a Volvo estate car, or a Ford Galaxy is likely to convince you, owing to their performances in these areas.

The car, what a gorgeous accessory! Much better than that, you see it like a real calling card. It must impress, of course. Regardless of your purchasing power, you are prepared to pay the price, otherwise you would rather walk. You have been dreaming of prestigious brands for a long time. Ideally, you would like a Rolls Royce, but failing that, another big cat like you, namely a Jaguar, may be an affordable fantasy. Since you are sensitive to people's opinion, and you want to impress them, you opt for a car of bright colour, not discreet at all, such as fire red or yellow. The way you behave behind the wheel reflects the self-confidence with which you control your luxury car. You are seen dashing with majesty, with one hand on the wheel, and the other one hanging down in the wind. But no one should be afraid. You deem that your life is precious, and you respect the Highway Code. Nevertheless, you may display arrogance or inflexibility, especially when someone dares to overtake you!

the Zodiac behind the wheel for Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

Like in everything else, you are irreproachable behind the wheel. Your car is always gleaming and clean, and you respect the rules so very well that you never get fines. You willingly give way to people, in a word, you are a model driver, or almost. Because timorous tendencies may become a disadvantage. You let other people take your parking spot, and on the highway, some hesitations may prove dangerous. Having said this, you spare no effort to improve yourself, and this also applies to the selection of your car. First of all, you base your choice by carefully studying the technical specifications. Therefore, it is not in a car show, where glib salespersons strive to sell anything, that you can be conned. You are thrifty, and you seek the best value for money. Lastly, you are among the signs which pioneer ecology. You may choose a “green” hybrid car such as the Nissan Leaf, or the Honda Accord, all brands which have proved their worth in this field.

the Zodiac behind the wheel for Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

You behave with politeness behind the wheel as well as in life in general, and you remain calm in all circumstances. Since you drive more in towns and their suburbs, this is quite important, in traffic jams! Besides, because you are shrewd, you are aware that driving may provide many encounter opportunities. Whether you are a lady in distress or a seducer, neglectfully leaning out at your window, you know how to exude charm when necessary. Therefore, it is not surprising that your car must represent you with elegance: it is out of the question for a Libra to ride a wreck! Sometimes a fashion victim, you may go wild over a three-door coupé, easy to park, such as the Mini-Cooper. You find the prospect of being able to customise it as you please quite exciting. In the same category, the Fiat 500 in a limited edition, adorned with Gucci colours, is attractive. But your dream car remains probably an Aston Martin, like James Bond.

According to a curious poll carried out by an insurance company, you are the sign of the Zodiac with the smallest number of accidents. Although you can rest assured that this study is real, do not get excited, because the ranking changes each year... Well, it is necessary to admit that you have resources, behind the wheel and elsewhere. Actually, based on this fact, many people with the Sun in Scorpio have requested a reduction of their insurance premium from their company! Whatever the reasons might be, you seem to avoid danger more easily than other people. Good for you! On the other hand, you are irritable, and you do not forgive those who stand in your way, particularly in the literal meaning. Your taste for provocation prompts you to choose cars having an air of mystery: preferably black vehicles with tinted windows, but also sometimes, cars meant for speed, with flashy and intriguing colours. A Corvette will make you feel that you are a racing driver, and an Opel Astra Extreme will also provide big thrills.

It would be difficult for you not to drive, you, the perpetual traveller with itchy feet! As a real extension of yourself, your car must bring you wherever the wind takes you. Therefore, it seems that it is for you that 4x4s, SUVs or Crossovers were created. You relish the idea of leaving the highway to go towards anything looking like an adventure, freely. Your style is sporty, of course, and thus, clever and fast. But you are impatient, and you are yet to understand what red lights are for... In any case, you hate exhaust gas and lack of privacy. To you, cars are synonymous with getaways. Totally matching your approach, a Jeep Grand Cherokee or a Land Rover guarantees that you can be comfortable on board. Driving such a car equates to adopting a special lifestyle. You are also interested in the history of the creation of brands.

Grey, safe, and reliable, here are the few words describing the car which suits your style. It is out of the question to opt for a “Have you seen me” type. You tend to associate it with your work. In your view, any move is a matter of usefulness before being a pleasure. You are well-organised, and you know exactly at what time you must leave, how long the distance will take, and what the parking facilities are, once you arrive. As a supporter of safe driving, you are disciplined and responsible. You are not the kind to forget your car's periodical technical controls, and you are not prone to the inconveniences which threaten more distracted drivers, i.e. driving until the tank is almost empty, or with worn tyres. You are and remain prudent! In this spirit, you trust German brands such as Mercedes, BMW, and Audi, strong and not devoid of prestige.

Are you dreaming of a self-driven vehicle? Very well! As futuristic as it may seem, car manufacturers are about to offer it. Therefore, in the near future, your car will be autonomous, intelligent, and clean. It is obvious that all this would not be possible without razor-edge technologies. Has GPS already given you a foretaste of the type of assistance available? Tomorrow, your car will be connected to the Internet to enable you to avoid traffic jams. The on-board system will also anticipate your orders so as to ward off dangers. The latest Mercedes-Benz S-Class model, stocked with sensors, is equipped with the Stop & Go Pilot feature, which handles driving in traffic jams. No need any more to engage the clutch, to press the accelerator or the brake pedal, since the car does everything for you. As far as you are concerned, you are fine. Indeed, since you are rather a city-dweller, you seldom relish the prospect of driving. On the other hand, cars enable you to preserve your sacrosanct independence, and therefore, you are still interested in them...

With your daydreaming nature, you do not match the best driver's profile. Behind the wheel, be careful not to let your imagination prevail, because you may not notice a light turning red, or you may miss a major junction. You have been among the first ones who were convinced by the GPS, the voice of which gives you the illusion that you have company. Since you are not reckless, you do not take the risk to drive when conditions are bad. However, your tolerance helps you deal with traffic jams rather well. You think that it is better than to be lost in the middle of nowhere! When it comes to selection, you are not a snob. You are fond of popular models, precisely. Besides, you readily transform your vehicle into a bohemian caravan. Go for a Qoros, by a new Chinese-Israeli manufacturer, or owing to its vintage touch, why not a new edition of the Morgan?
