MARS

Ashley Thiessen

Deep in your Mars heart, you have a warrior, who bangs against the walls of your chest and screams for justice. But with him comes the urge to rape, pillage, and dominate our surroundings, and that is the side of human nature that we fear the most.

VENUS

Ashley Thiessen

Your Venus Sign placement shows not only how you view partnership and how you behave in your relationships. It also shows the qualities that you are most attracted to, and what you are looking for in a partner. Venus is most often looked at when you are judging compatibility between two people. And it is often stated that if you are attracted to women, this is the kind of woman you are looking for.

MERCURY

Ashley Thiessen

Whether you use your Mercury through teaching, building, fixing, writing, or speaking, it is a major component of your personality. And an often overlooked one at that! Too many astrologers talk about your Sun, your Moon, Venus, Mars, Saturn, and Pluto, skipping over half the planets in the process. But isn't how a person think just as interesting, if not more so, than every other aspect of their personality? Isn't Mercury worthy of your time?

The MOON

Ashley Thiessen

This is the Moon that we fear, for we know that deep down, our emotions are not civilized or rational. They are utterly irrational, and so many of us are afraid of what will happen if we let them out. We choose to ignore our feelings and try to move past it without acting upon them. We choke back tears and bite back words said in anger, so we can appear rational when other people look at us. But emotions do not go away when we ignore them. They stay put, and they cry like children inside of us, until either they erupt in a volcano of explosive tears... or we acknowledge why they are there in the first place.

The SUN

Ashley Thiessen

In astrology, the Sun represents your ego, your identity, the core of who you are. This is where you conscious mind is, and where many of your thoughts and opinions come from. The ego is a powerful, passionate, and prideful thing. It is a source of strength, vitality, energy, and willpower, imposing itself on the world like the brightest star in the sky.

The PLANETS: All the Pieces of Your Astrological Personality

Ashley Thiessen

When you talk about your zodiac Sign (“I’m a Virgo/Scorpio/Taurus/Libra/etc.”), what you are referring to is your Sun Sign, or where the sun was on the day you were born. Most people know their Sun Sign, if only from being exposed to astrology through magazines and newspapers over the years. But most people don't take an actual look at their natal chart, and most don't know that you also have a Moon Sign, Mercury Sign, Venus Sign, and so on, each planet adding another layer of complexity to your personality.

PISCES

Ashley Thiessen

To the rational outsider, you may look at a Pisces and see a dreamer with their head in the clouds, easily thrown off course by the smallest criticism. To you they are passive and dependant, shy and quiet, gullible and easily manipulated. You may not every know what is going on with them, as they cry often and seldom talk about how they feel. But this Sign is much stronger, and much more capable, than they may seem!

AQUARIUS

Ashley Thiessen

Aquarius gets a varied array of reactions from people for being so confidently different, from jealous admiration to outright hatred. But they don't care. They just keep doing their own thing.

CAPRICORN

Ashley Thiessen

If you have a Capricorn employee or coworker, you are at once the luckiest and the most threatened manager in the world, A Capricorn employee is happy to start at the bottom, making minimum wage, taking the shitty shifts, if they think there is some upward mobility in the company they work for. They work extremely hard, show up early, stay late, treat your customers with respect, dress and act professionally, and run the show in your absence. But make no mistake, they have no intention of staying at the bottom.

SAGITTARIUS

Ashley Thiessen

Female Archers are often burdened with demands to be more sensitive, empathetic, and patient, especially by men who find themselves challenged or threatened by them. But while Sagittarians of both sexes could stand to develop more compassion and tenderness, don't hold your breathe. Those stereotypically "womanly" roles aren't likely to be filled by either of them any time soon.

SCORPIO

Ashley Thiessen

There isn't really any length they won't go to to keep their secret selves safe from prying eyes. That's why you are so often warned not to back them into a corner or threaten them in any way. They will go off.

LIBRA

Ashley Thiessen

While they are not totally emotionally involved, Libras are very interested in relationships on an intellectual level. They like to study people and personalities, compatibility and psychology, if only to get closer to understanding why things work out sometimes and why they don't others.

VIRGO

Ashley Thiessen

So Virgo commits to a relationship with a horrible person in the hopes of turning them around, and Virgo is the selfless victim who gets their heart stepped on. Right? Well, there is also a smidgen more to it.

LEO

Ashley Thiessen

Leos are usually led to astrology because it is talking non-stop about themselves. And astrologers have the foresight to pad their articles with (albeit shallow) compliments to get them to stick around. They point out how when a Leo walks through a door, everyone's eyes are on them. They say that people are attracted to their warm aura of kindness and generosity, their charm, their sexiness, and how everybody wants to be their friend. All of this is true. But that is usually where they stop, too afraid of wounding a Leo's pride to say any more. Astrologers know fully well that Leos are not interested in digging deeper to discover their inner selves - they come to read the list of positive traits and then angrily dispute any of the negative. But there is more to this Sign than just its happy-go-lucky and well-loved exterior self, and to really get to know a Leo, you need to look under the veil.

CANCER

Ashley Thiessen

Look at a Cancer as they sit alone, away from the party, deep in thought, and see that their resting face is now solemn, if a little sad. Is that the same person who was making funny voices just a minute ago? Is that the same person who was blowing bubbles into their baby's belly, or scrubbing their dog's ears, or lovingly kissing the back of their spouse's hand? Yep. Cancer moodiness is one of their defining features. One minute they are happy, and the next they are bitching and complaining about everything under the sun. Then they get sad, and then their sadness makes them angry, and then they calm down, and then are cheering up again. And so it goes, in cycle with the moon and with the people they are surrounded by, their whole life long, no matter how hard they try to hide it.

GEMINI

Ashley Thiessen

The twins, as they are two people together, symbolize duality, communication, and the exchange of information. “Twins” suggest that the symbol is more than just two people who have met by chance – these are two siblings that shared a womb, entered this world together, and continue to live as related family. The symbolism here is of two thoughts, two ideas, or two mirror personas that live in the same mind together, like two babies in the belly of their mother.

TAURUS

Ashley Thiessen

Taurus people work very hard. But they are also very lazy on their time off. They fall under both extremes. Trying to get a Taurus to do anything is like pushing a boulder over a hill - difficult to get them going at first, but once they are rolling it is impossible to get them to stop. Their work ethic is the same. These are the people who plough through hours of vigorous physical labour, getting all kinds of shit done, and then come home and plant themselves on the couch for the entire weekend. And don't think you can move them once they've sat down.

ARIES

Ashley Thiessen

Sure, they have explosive episodes and their ego is out of control some days. Sometimes their bluntly-spoken honesty can hurt your feelings. But they are also sentimental, kind, generous, and open-hearted people who become romantic, selfless heroes, and comedic fools in different situations.
