The Zodiac and Fantasy

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 Gourmet, 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.

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

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

You do not lack fantasy, and you generally do as you please. Endowed with a strong personality, you always get what you want, and you are rather creative, since your sign is symbolically related to the head and impulsiveness. You do nothing the way other people do.

They can rely on you to find an innovative way to approach a situation, sometimes tactlessly, it is true. One might as well say that you are indifferent to the impression you give.

Regarding clothing, your fanciful temperament may express itself through outfits into which you slip hastily. You believe that this is better than to follow the mainstream like a sheep.

Advice for Aries

Do not change anything, except in case of administrative formalities, when you must behave like your fellow creatures.

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

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

In fact, you clearly prefer classicism to fantasy. Therefore, one cannot say that you are brimming with this quality.

Since you are pragmatic, you do not like to ask yourself useless questions just in order to stand out or to make a joke. The more you can stick to a routine, the better you feel.

Nevertheless, you wish you had some of the lightness which characterises Air signs, those which do not ruminate and do not fuss around when they make a mistake. Having said this, you are determined to assert your good taste, and you swear by safe bets only.

Advice for Taurus

Forget your habits once in a while. Unexpected winds will do you good.

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

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

You are fantasy personified. Whirling around like a will-o'-the-wisp, always prepared to try new experiences, endowed with refined humour or sometimes a biting sense of mockery, you possess all the weapons required to use this quality.

You cannot help it. Whenever rules are imposed upon you, you add your personal stamp. Instructions for use, just like predictable people, are boring.

However, it would be wrong to think that you are disorganised. Mercury, your planet, has given you an extremely rational brain, while whispering to your ear that plans are meant to be altered.

Advice for Gemini

Why wouldn't you choose a path or a profession banking on fantasy? You would be the best one.

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

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

At the same time cautious, shy, and fickle, you seldom show your real share of fantasy. And yet, the Moon, your sign ruler, is synonymous with changes. She encourages you to use your imagination to escape from reality, which results in an unpredictable and sometimes poetic behaviour.

Since you express your mood and your emotions, you happen to adopt a style or an attitude unsuitable for the situation.

You compensate for your total lack of pragmatism by being charming. You do not fear to add fantasy in your writings or your creations.

Advice for Cancer

Do not hesitate to disclose your preferences or your values, even though they are different from others.

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

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

By essence a royal sign, you give priority to protocol, and you despise shoddiness. You may use this scathing word to refer to what people consider to be fantasy.

You snigger silently when you see those who are not concerned about their appearance or their behaviour in society.

Sometimes your ego keeps your sense of humour in check, and you do not dare to step out of bounds. Gosh! What if people have reasons to think that you are ridiculous? It would be worse than anything.

Advice for Leo

Nobody has ever died for having taken on a challenge. Besides, you are quite creative, for your sign is in analogy with the 5th House. You ought to display this sympathetic side of your personality.

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

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

What is the height of fantasy for you? Perhaps to put on a light grey instead of a dark grey suit. Or to part your hair on the other side. Wow! One cannot say that there is a chance that you enter the Guinness Book of Records as the most fanciful person.

Admittedly, your dearest wish is to be taken seriously and to avoid making waves. You are willing to obey the rules, to deserve your position, to remain discreet, and to use pedestrian crossings.

All this is fine, but at this rate, you may get bored or scare people off.

Advice for Virgo

Be less strict, and relax. Mercury will give you a few ideas in order to forget your principles and to let yourself go.

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

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

Like the two other Air signs, Gemini and Aquarius, you appreciate fantasy, especially when it manifests itself through verbal jousting, or even better, through shows which delight your artistic inclination.

Your only concern regarding this quality is that it may call into question your sharp sense of aestheticism and of harmony.

You agree to wear colourful clothes, except if you seem poorly dressed. You definitely refuse to be a clown or to be unattractive. Nothing would be more traumatic than to be disguised as one of Snow White's dwarfs or as Quasimodo for example.

Advice for Libra

Find the happy medium, as usual. This should not be a problem for you.

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

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

As for you, you do not fear people's opinion, and therefore, you may step out of line and dare… anything, whatever you feel like.

However, on a different level, you happen to lack fantasy, for you tend to turn everything into a tragedy. One may say that it is most likely that you are unable to make a crowd laugh without reservation.

Besides, your personality made of concentration and intensity may be disquieting. People never know how you are going to react.

Advice for Scorpio

Relax and introduce a dose of amusement in your life as well as in your friends and relatives'. Owing to your rather creative nature, this should be possible, if not easy, for you.

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

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

Yes, you have fantasy galore. First of all, you are open-minded, and you find your inspiration all over the world. For you, atypical behaviours have all the charm of exoticism.

You cannot help adopting in small touches attitudes which prove that you are familiar with social codes, because you are also very outgoing and well-adapted to the world in which you live. In this area, no blunder.

Nevertheless, you are capable of breaking accepted norms in case of idiosyncratic details related to foreign lands. Regarding clothing, you enjoy wearing ethnic jewellery with a suit. At work, you are the first one to blend seriousness and unconventional experiences.

Advice for Sagittarius

To nurture your inner fantasy, turn it into your profession.

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

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

Self-righteous, you clearly do not exude fantasy, it must be said. When you leave in the morning, you only have in mind the list of your obligations. In all circumstances, you are driven by your duties, as well as by constraints stemming from your deeply rooted natural ambition. Therefore, there is no room for pleasant moments or little pauses full of fresh air.

Be careful, because you run the risk of robotizing your daily activities if you aim too hard at perfection or classicism.

You try so constantly to fulfil your commitments that you forget to smile.

Advice for Capricorn

Take example on the people who do not toe the line. They can show you that a different path, without negative consequences, is sometimes possible.

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

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

Similarly to your friend, Gemini, you are bursting with fantasy, with in addition a dash of desire to provoke. First, you do nothing like people. You are the boldest or the most innovative sign of the zodiac.

Kitsch amuses you, and totally quirky attires never make you frown. You are the epitome of tolerance, and in your opinion, nothing should be forbidden. In Cannes, you would even be able to walk down the red carpet barefoot.

You can slam the door of a meeting that you deem fruitless or just tedious. It is obvious that, beneath your lightness, there may also be a more or less big amount of protest.

Advice for Aquarius

Simply keep on inspiring people.

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

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

You are definitively fanciful, though with a certain nonchalance. You would not hesitate to stroll around in the middle of the street wearing pyjamas or a cloak, provided that you are comfortable and that you can continue your fairy tale with your eyes open. You dream your life instead of facing concrete constraints.

Indeed, there is nothing you find more depressing than restrictions and hurdles which are so painful to bear. It is awful for you to wear a uniform, to be punctual, to do your duty, to take on your responsibilities, and to comply with the rules.

Your life is driven by your impressions and your emotions. In some cases, you want to give it an artistic orientation. You even translate it unintentionally in your bohemian look.

Advice for Pisces

You know how to surprise people without uttering a word. You have nothing left to learn in this area.

Some Pisces Examples

You will find on Astrotheme thousands of natal charts of celebrities who have the Sun in Pisces, Pisces rising, or Neptune dominant. The former are sorted in popularity order, whereas the latter are sorted according to the strongest dominant. Since each planet also rules a House – sometimes two houses – you may want to also look at charts having a strong 12th House.
