The Zodiac and Freedom

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.

Aries and Freedom

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

When freedom is mentioned to you, you clearly hear free will. More plainly, "to do as you like". You cannot bear being given orders, and you are in no way a follower.

You even happen to get into all sorts of trouble because you listen to nobody, doing whatever you fancy.

However, you do not particularly try to impose your views on people. They can do what they want, provided that they leave you alone.

Assets for Aries

When it comes to moving up to the front line to champion a cause dear to you, you become formidably efficient.

This results in a yearning to merge into the wide world and to mix with people, regardless of their origins.

You judge no one, on the lookout for those who can enter the same emotional space as yours. For you, freedom must be both internal – to think the way you deem suitable, to be tolerant – and concretely experienced.
