1: Elements Signs / Natural House Qualities Triplicity
elements represent four groups of qualities and houses of three
groups Zodiac signs known as triplicity.
element modifies the temperament of that Zodiac Sign as an adjective
modifies a noun. The many characteristics of the element make the
foundation of keywords for any astrological sign. The amount of
planets, in a person's natal chart, in one ELEMENT of signs
has a direct impact on how that person reacts to events, people
and places in their life time.
an example: Jacquelyn is a Taurus Sun Sign. That all by itself would
make her more of a practical and down to earth sort of person. Those
close to her cock their head in disbelief of Astrology because Jacquelyn
is spontaneous and impulsive about life. This would be a good read
of Jacquelyn's ELEMENTAL make up of her Natal Chart. She has only
ONE planet in the Earth Element and SIX in Fire, and the rest are
balanced between Air and Water.
the total number of planets in each element is only one of many
ways to view the interpretation of a natal chart. These introductory
lessons will only briefly discuss the way to interpret a natal chart.
The focus is to learn the keywords associated with the makeup of
the wheel chart and to have a reading knowledge of the language
of Astrology. Interpretation or delineation of a chart will come
in more advanced lessons.
FIRE TRIPLICITY: Aries, Leo, and
charts with planets in FIRE SIGNS may see the individual reacting
to circumstances and events immediately and then explaining and
reviewing the action after the fact. This trio of astrological signs
are QUICK to act. Impulsive as well as daring, the down side to
their action may be disregard or neglect of details. The positive
result of Fire Sign reaction, we need people who have FIRE signs
predominant in their chart to perform the important tasks of paramedics,
emergency room personnel and military leadership, just to name a
few occupations. The Fire signs are the PHYSICAL signs. They
have a great deal of physical energy that is channeled through most
often sports, dance, exercise and sex.
AIR TRIPLICITY: Gemini, Libra and
The "head" signs
of the Zodiac. Their first reaction to events, people and places
is INTELLECTUAL. Their initial reaction
would be to ferret out all the necessary information to reach a
balanced decision on matters and actions to take. The negative side
to this the overanalyzing may cause unnecessary complication rather
than accepting the simple solution or evidence. Example occupations
that people find themselves in who have a predominance of planets
in AIR are: politicians, judges, and teachers.
EARTH TRIPLICITY: Taurus, Virgo
in practicality is the phrase that best describes this triplicity
reaction to life's dramas. They assess all sides of an issue to
determine what could be personally gained by the action being considered.
Although their reaction may be considered MATERIAL, this
trio is invaluable in assessing the value in people as well as
The down side to the influences of the Earth elemental is the time
it takes for these people to reactslow. Ferdinand just has
to smell the flowers first. Where this reaction is particular useful
is in financial affairs, real estate and appraisal. This triplicity
spells patience unlike the Fire trio that spells impatience.
WATER TRIPLICITY: Cancer, Scorpio
trio are the "heart" signs of the Zodiac. Their reaction
to circumstances are largely EMOTIONAL. Feelings dominate
their decisions and their actions. Intuition is the strongest
these signs. Without Water Signs in this world we wouldn't have
the ability to go with our "gut" feeling and be surprised
to find out it was right. The down side is the other side of
INTUITIVE sword where hunches may just be fantasy and not reality.
They often act on their hunches before fact finding. This can
loss without the necessary attention to the intellectual and practical
sides. The positive of this trio, they are truthful and loyal
It's this triplicity you want dominating in a natal chart for your
Director of your Child Care Center, Health Care provider or Therapist.
Nurturance is innate with natal charts that have many planets
the WATER element.
