Changes in life – how we accept and undertake them

    In psychology, and in life the word temperament is very common. Even Hippocrates in the 5th century BC describes four types of people depending on the "prevailing fluid in their body": sanguine, choleric, phlegmatic and melancholic.
    Temperament underlies our ability to be more or less flexible and adaptable in life and determines how we accept and make changes in our life. Naturally there is no single person who is "pure" type of temperament. In each one the four basic types are present in certain proportions. The vey word temperament is of Latin origin and means "ratio of features."
    One of the first things that astrology pays attention to, when talking about human temperament for the distribution of planets in the zodiac signs. The twelve signs are classified first in four elements:
Fire - Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Earth - Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo
Water - Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
Air - Libra, Aquarius, Gemini

    The four elements in their sense mean different attitude towards the world.

    For fire the main thing is action. It loves the adventures, the challenges, the change. Incredible enthusiast, sociable and spontaneous. It is the "active" one in the zodiac. It can easily lose heart, go out, if limited in some way.

    For the earth the main thing is the contact, the touch. This is the matter. And following this characteristic is the Earth is the most materialistic one in the zodiac. It likes to have facts, details, to acquire things in a purely materialistic sense.

    For the water the primary thing is the sense. It needs emotional security in the form of deeper understanding and merger. Feelings and emotions are the driving motive. To the water living without depth of emotions is the same as a life devoid of meaning.

    For the air the main thing is the conceptual, the thought. It needs a lot of variety and space. It likes to move from place to place and from person to person like the wind, which is always in motion.

    The second classification of characters is by quality:
Cardinal - Aries, Cancer, Capricorn, Libra
Fixed - Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius
Variable - Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces

    As you will notice each sign of a given element has a different quality. Which undelies the fundamental differences between the various star signs of an element.

    When analyzing the horoscope is sought which are the dominant element and the dominant quality. They are at the root of a person's temperament and are basic guide to how a person accepts and makes changes in his life. However, taking into account only the Sun like finding about 15% of that temperament. Practically all the planets are important. And by their importance they are arranged in the following order - Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. It is necessary to find the balance of the elements and only then we can make any conclusions. Usually when a fan of astrology understand that a person is born with the Sun in the sign of Gemini, he automatically expects to see a versatile, easy to get bored person, wobbler, always in motion, outgoing and highly sociable. And he is often surprised at the end. And there would be no surprise, if when looking at the horoscope of the man we find that there are 4 or 5 planets in water signs, and this makes him more closed, more morose, very emotional, looking for depth.

    Speaking of life changes and to what extent we are able to accept them and seek, the dominant quality brings the more important information. In other words whether we are cardinal, fixed or variable. So I will focus on this issue.

    When the cardinal quality prevails life passes through a series of constant changes, which cause great instability and uncertainty. These people have charisma, magnetic attraction, because they are very dynamic. As if they are always in the throes of something new, but don’t expect them to stay until the end of each of their initiatives. They are the people who light the fire and would lose all their enthusiasm, if they need to immerse themselves in details and routine. They are quite aggressive in their behavior towards people, they have many ideas but have difficulty in implementing them in detail. They carry the energy of the initiator, of the one who makes the first sod, leaving others to finish the job. They want to be "pioneers" in life, seeking adventure and risk. And usually they achieved success away from their birthplace or in their contacts with people and places that are "strange" to them and somehow distant. Here the changes are undertaken by the man himself, he rarely waits for the change to happen to him, but rather seeks it himself. And usually the changes are sharp and bright.
