natives are generally thought to be sociable, somewhat
intellectual souls. They have an almost innocent way about
them that makes them very approachable. Generally quite
eager to cooperate, Librans spend a lot of their time trying
not to rock the boat.
In theory, Libras are
peace-loving. In practice, they can quietly stir up all sorts of
trouble with their ways. Because Libra enjoys balance in their
lives, they seek the middle ground. In the process, they may end up
trying to be everything to everyone. This is where their
reputation for untruthfulness comes from. Generally, their
untruths spring from a true desire for peace and
fairness--although they may not be comfortable with direct
and malicious trickery, they feel totally justified when
they lie in order to avoid making waves. Peace at any price!
sense, they seem harmless. But, what can result is quite a ruckus!
People involved with Libras may crib about their lack of
directness and their apparent inability to take a stand. Librans
are experts at avoiding being the one to blame. When
confronted, they'll (calmly and reasonably) say, "What,
me? No, I just want peace."
"On the fence", "middle
ground", "middle road" -- these are all expressions
that we can safely associate with Libra.
Some more powerful signs may
consider Libra a little on the weak side. This is all a matter of opinion,
however! Without Libra, life simply wouldn't be as fair.
Librans are known for
comparing and thinking in relative terms, instead of in
absolutes. This weekend is not just a good weekend, it's
better than last weekend. These people are always looking
for the "best" way or the "right" way to
live. Harmony is the ultimate goal, but their idealism and
high expectations can mean plenty of discontent. Since life
presents all of us with an extraordinary amount of choices,
if Libra doesn't learn to live in the moment at least some
of the time, they'll be in a constant state of unrest.
rules, and these rules attempt to bring justice,
equality, and fairness. On an individual level,
Libra represents these laws of civilization.
Libra comes across as very civilized and rather

Scorpios are known for
their intensity. They are determined folk that absolutely
throw themselves into whatever they do -- but getting them
to commit to something is rarely an easy task. In fact, it's
better not to even try to "get them" to do
anything. Solar Scorpios absolutely have their own mind.
And, their primary motivation is unlikely to be prestige
(like their Capricorn friends), or even authority (Leos can
have that, too)--it's real power. Their power
can absolutely be of the "behind the scenes"
variety, just as long as they have it.
To others, Scorpios seem to
have plenty of willpower. They probably do. Scorpios do know
what they want, and they won't go out and grab it at the
wrong moment. They simply sit back, watch (quite expertly),
and then get it only when the moment is just right. This
apparent patience is simply their powerful skills at
strategy at work.
Scorpio isn't afraid of
getting their hands (their bodies, their minds) dirty. The
darker side of life intrigues them, and they're always ready
Scorpios simply never give
up. They have tremendous staying power. They're not in the
slightest intimidated by anybody or anything. Confrontations
are not a problem. In fact, talk to any Scorpio about their
lives, and you'll probably be in awe at all they've gone
through. Trauma seems to follow them wherever they go. When
Scorpio learns optimism, instead of expecting the worst,
they'll find that they possess amazing regenerative powers
-- the power to heal, create, and transform.

This gives natives a generally quick temper.
Fortunately, they're usually as quick to forget
what got them angry in the first place.
The need for
escape is generally strong, and some Solar
Sagittarians come across as a little
irresponsible. They're generally easy to
forgive, however. After all, their direct,
honest approach in life is admirable.

Capricorn is a
feet-on-the-ground, eye-on-the-prize sign. Those with Sun in
Capricorn have a realistic, grounded approach to life that
can be seen no matter how dreamy the rest of the birth chart
suggests. These people know how to do things, and to get
Some Capricorns naturally
turn their backs on things they deem too frivolous. They are
very much concerned with things that are worthwhile --
and that includes their own lives. Capricorns want to do and
be something worthwhile. Like their Earth signs relatives,
Taurus and Virgo, they need to feel useful and effective in
the real world in order to be satisfied with their lives.
But the Capricorn spin on the earth signs is that they have
a stronger need for recognition in a worldly sense. They
have a strong sense of society and its framework, and they
feel most secure when they feel they are doing their part
within that framework.
Capricorns like to pare
things down, and take pleasure in the simple things in life.
However, many are attracted to status symbols and these ones
will wear the best clothes (tasteful ones!) and drive
quietly impressive cars.
Comparing Capricorns to
their symbol, the goat, brings up some interesting
analogies. Solar Capricorns can see into the future, and
plan for it. They don't mind taking things slowly, but they
absolutely aim to get to the top of the mountain in life!
They make their way steadily and sure-footedly; and their
strength and singleness of purpose are admirable.
Capricorns can sometimes be
rather lonely people, although they rarely let it show. They
are often a little reserved--even standoffish. This is
generally because they value all things practical,
and they'll seldom wear their emotions on their sleeves,
unless they have a particularly flamboyant Moon sign.
This is a sign that is
surely the most resourceful of the zodiac. To some,
Capricorns come across as unimaginative, but they can be
enormously creative when it comes to the material world.
They are generally very capable people with a strong sense
of tradition and responsibility.
Many Capricorns have
mastered the art of making people laugh. Their sense of
humor can be of the deadpan variety--they're generally
excellent at keeping a straight face. They can be bitingly
Capricorns are not known
for taking too many risks in life. They value the beaten
track and things "tried and true". This is not to
say they are stick-in-the-muds -- they simply value the hard
work laid down by those who've been around before them.
Turn to your Capricorn
friends for help when you need to really get things done.
They'll have practical advice, and they'll help you organize
and manage your life a little better. Capricorns are
generally good with their "word", dependable, and
rather loyal people.

Aquarians can be surprisingly stubborn. Their

As the twelfth and last
sign of the zodiac, Pisces contains within itself a little
experience of all the signs. This gives Pisces Suns the
ability to identify with people from all walks of life--from
all backgrounds--in some way. These individuals are not only
changeable and adaptable, they have open minds and
tremendous understanding. But Pisces itself is often
misunderstood. Pisces Suns may spend a good portion of their
lives yearning for understanding, and the other part in a
state of divine discontent. Suffering is sometimes
glamorized in the Piscean world.
Sun in Pisces people are
frequently pegged as wishy-washy, but this is all a matter
of opinion. What you will find behind a vaguely
directionless, spacey manner is a deep person with real
dreams. Their dreams are more than getting that picket fence
or making it up the corporate ladder. Pisces are tuned in to
a higher purpose and their dreams transcend the individual.
A deep love for humanity, and compassion that knows no
bounds is found with this placement of the Sun.
Pisceans are not known to
be cutthroat business types, nor are they given to throwing
themselves out into the world in an aggressive manner. But
make no mistake about it, Pisces can be extraordinarily
successful when given the chance to express themselves. The
arts, marketing, music, teaching, drama, healing
arts...these are all fields in which Pisces can find
expression. Their imagination, attunement to humanity, and
remarkable intuition endow them with enviable gifts of
insight and creativity.
Pisces is a
sensitive sign--both sensitive to criticism and sensitive to
others' feelings. Easily touched by human suffering, at
least in theory, Pisces wouldn't hurt a fly. They believe in
people, are deeply hurt by compassionless human behavior,
and have a hard time saying no. Harsh realities are avoided
either through escapist behavior or self-delusion; but every
now and again reality does raise its ugly head, and hits
Pisces over the head. This is a sad time indeed. Pisces
retreats into their own world, self-pitying and giving pep talks to
themselves ("I will never trust again!"). Rest
assured, though, that these periods are rather short-lived
and even useful. Pisces seems to derive energy from their
(generally short) bouts of self-pity.
They come back stronger, with a spring in their step, ready
to face the world again, and just as, if not more,
compassionate and trusting as they were before. Some might
even wonder if Pisces finds pleasure in suffering. Sometimes
this is the case, but most of the time, Pisces pulls a lot
of creative energy from sadness. Pisces is the poet or
artist with angst, although this trait is often more
apparent with Moon in Pisces.
Some find Pisces' tendency
to be late for appointments, spaced out behavior, and
absent-mindedness amount to irresponsibility. Pisces would
be shocked to know this, however. Who me? Pisces wonders.
Irresponsible? Pisces Suns absolutely care--their love knows
no bounds--but their retreats
from ordinary life (whether they are as simple as daydreams
or actual departures) that they so seem to need every now and again
are not always understandable to no-nonsense signs, such as
Virgo or Aries.
Many Pisces seem almost allergic to things like shopping lists, maps, directions,
and instructions, and for some brave souls, even watches --
they prefer to feel their way through life than to follow
We find plenty of artists,
poets, and musicians with Sun (and other personal planets)
in Pisces. Piscean themes are woven
throughout the songs of Billy Corgan of the Smashing
Pumpkins and Kurt Cobain of Nirvana, for example.
