Zodiacal Extracurricular Tastes

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 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.

With an Aries child, it is wise to find an outlet for his brimming energy. A person born with the Sun in this sign always readily takes up challenges, if possible with a high level of adrenaline.

It would be suitable also to choose an individual activity in which he can successfully be self-employed. Athletics, combat sports or those implying speed, including karting if he is old enough, represent good options. It may be a helpful idea to advise him to be careful and to remind him the rules and practices, even if it means bothering him. But at least the indispensable precautions will be taken.

Fiery, full of life, Aries can also work wonders in theatre improvisation. Aries may not play the role of bashful lovers or tearful belles, but will know how to express burning passion. In any case, one criterion only is important: his love for the activity in question, because it is useless to force these horny animals!

Blessed with a pleasant voice, he is sensitive to various forms of music and will gladly play an instrument, especially if it is huge or requires tight body contact. Contrabassoon, saxophone, or drums will delight him.

Along the same lines, sculpture or ceramics may appeal to him. A nature lover, he may also develop a liking for leisure activities enabling him to explore the countryside in all simplicity.

However, he must beware of his thoughtlessness, because he gets tired quickly! Having said this, he has a wide range of talents to be exploited. He likes theatre, public readings, collective sports such as football, basketball, or tennis.

His inner calm must be respected. He learns better in small groups under the guidance of a teacher or of a person entrusted with a supervisory task, provided the said person is mature enough. The child likes habits. Once he has started a painting course at a given time, a given day, he is a regular attender. Initiation to pastry classes will also suit his delicate and gourmet temperament.

As we all have guessed, games take an important dimension in his case, since his ego is in question.

Therefore, he should be oriented towards theatre acting, or a cinema or circus school which offers the opportunity to learn about life.

He focuses on the sports he associates with social success: golf, tennis, or football, since nowadays the bests players are gods.

It is most likely that he enrols at a ski club. Quite logically, he is comfortable with horses, because the contact with his mascot stimulates his instincts.
