Each of the twelve astrological signs has it’s own meaning and energies behind it, and these are determined by the course of seasonal change they represent. For example, the fiery ram (Aries) leads the astrological year with the spring equinox, followed along shortly by the change of season into summer, where we have such signs as the crab (Cancer) scuttling along waters warm enough to swim in. Along with that, there is the scales (Libra) as we round the corner into the autumnal equinox, discarding what is no longer necessary as we enter the colder season. With the fish (Pisces) diving the deepest into the frigid, cold waters of the winter solstice.
In this way, each sign is unique and brings along with it a source of invaluable energy and information.
