Virgo is highly economical. When she enters a room she x-rays it briefly and estimates the distances. Then she walks in completing all tasks perfectly with the highest gain at the lowest cost. Example: Virgo wants to make tea, read an article from the newspaper,  and put a cake into the oven. First, she walks to the oven because it’s closest to her. She opens it with her right hand while reaching the teapot with her left hand. She opens the teapot while walking towards the sink. Then she fills it with water while getting a cup from the top shelf with her right hand. Afterward, she turns around with the teapot in one hand and the cup in the other. She walks to the kitchen counter to put the teapot on the stove to boil the water and the cup right next to it.

Libra brings people together and always finds whatever connects a community. When Libra enters a room with a group of people, first she estimates the tension within a group.

Libra walks in, goes to the tired person and makes a joke in a charming, vivid and cheerful way. Afterward, she sits down between the couple and talks to both of them in an understanding, insightful and soothing manner. Next, she turns towards the intimidated person and pays all of her attention to her.

The energy of Sagittarius is diffuse and fiery. When you imagine those adjectives combined, a little volcano appears in front of your inner eye.

Capricorn - painted by Nastja Stefanyuk

Sun: vitality, basic energy, ego

Capricorn always keeps himself under control. To gain control over himself, he separates everything that appears to be impractical in order of reaching his goals. He divides categorically into bad and good, weak and strong, useful and useless. Thus, Capricorn always has a box full of feelings carefully hidden in the pit of his stomach. However, inside this box, his emotions are deep and never to be underestimated. After isolating his emotions he agglomerates all of his energy in the midst of his body. So his organs are well supplied with blood even though his extremities are cold as though it’s always winter.

The rationing of his energy sources proceeds utterly strategical. Imagine his energy is a huge, conglomerated orb of slowly spinning charge. Capricorn sits in front of it as a judge on a podium. Bit by bit with one manual gesture he distributes parts of the charge directly to its target location. At the same time, a computer calculates correctly how much of the energy is needed where. Therefore it’s not surprising that Capricorn is the most efficient Zodiac sign. It usually remains unrecognized how much work Capricorn actually invests. That’s because he always keeps his cool. Thus it appears as though he only has to flick his fingers to achieve results.

The values of Pisces are far from the materialistic values of the society we live in. Those values are the values of all-encompassing love and mercy. That’s why Pisces encounter his environment with consideration and respect. Some Pisces are able to justify the most despicable actions and still manage to feel compassion with the perpetrator. That’s because a Pisces sun is tender-hearted, indulgent, mellow, sweet-tempered and soft. There is no limit to the amount of empathy which results in a sparkling emotional life.  At times that might confuse a Pisces. That’s because he cannot rationally backtrace where all of these feelings are coming from. Mostly since not all of what he feels are actually his own feelings.

Sometimes you might feel paralyzed as a Pisces sun, because of your limitless empathy. Then you tend to sleep long and maybe can’t get your arse in gear. To criticize that would be a huge error since you have to process 20 times more than anyone else. The beautiful side of this rich emotional life is the creativity which comes with it. Therefore there are a lot of Pisces contributing groundbreaking creations to the artistic world.
