Thinking this might shear up the general tribe mood. What signs do you find fascinating and/or admirable these days? and please motivate why.

I'd have to go with pisces because of its ethereal universal channeling and dissolving which makes me think of the rainbow reflection in soap.
Aquarius and gemini becauce of their flickering, fast, changable electric way which makes me think of just that. Electricity, flickering screens, connection wires.
Sagittarius which I find is imaginatively ellaborative like an adventurous fairytale burning with colors.

  • Capricorn. I have a ton of respect for Cappy's because I understand and can relate to their suffering. In this modern world of multiple choices it's so easy to get lost, and Capricorn's suffer from this the most, because they won't move unless they know where they're heading. Us modern Cappy's have also a Sun/Moon conjunction to Neptune, which can make us feel even more lost.
    A lost Cappy is the most inwardly depressing individual you can find, because they are the last person to show it, which makes them feel more lonely, additionally to feeling useless because they aren't doing anything with life.
    I was deep into this state for a long time, but when I found my purpose in life it got a lot better. When I look back I can sometimes not believe that I'm still alive. I guess my escapist tendencies made life worth living.
    • "Us modern Cappy's have also a Sun/Moon conjunction to Neptune"

      Can you explain?

      "A lost Cappy is the most inwardly depressing individual you can find, because they are the last person to show it, which makes them feel more lonely, additionally to feeling useless because they aren't doing anything with life. "

      I think Capricorn needs to DO things to feel contented. Not sit around planning their life without doing anything. They need to be out there doing stuff, preferably in a 'reward scheme' based environment like work or something that has targets you can work toward and beat. A lot of male caps I know often do training of some kind, such as weight lifting, jogging etc. So they set their own 'goals' or targets and work toward them. I think that's important to Caps. Another great one is having a bank account and aiming to save a certain amount, but its more 'long term' which will ultimately satisfy Caps as they do think long term, but not their 'in the moment' needs.
      Caps need to feel productive in some way.

      I think I understand what you're saying and I think that is quite an insightful view of capricorn. My grandmother is a capricorn with moon conj neptune (as well as saturn in pisces conj IC and mars in pisces) and she has done alot of "silent suffering".

      Like Paul says about capricorn needing to do stuff in order to stay healthy and not get depressed this has been my grandmothers way of handling things - she stayed active, cleaned and served others until her hip bone and back sort of gave out (yes, she is a true cap). After that she got quite immobile which made her totally disappear in a neptune dream haze and nowadays just lies on the bed staring into the ceiling and sleeps away reality.

      Due to capricorn being an earthsign and ruled by saturn it has a way of building thicker and thicker walls when depressed and at the same time being distant towards its own feelings which makes it even harder, so I think I'm with you on that in theory atleast - capricorn probably suffers the most.
      • "capricorn probably suffers the most. "

        I don't think that it suffers any more than other signs. We can suffer in different ways all the time. I think its just that Cap can be harder on itself than perhaps other signs are. Cap has so many ambitions, its hard not to feel like a failure if they don't all come to fruition.

        I'm almost inclined to think that a lot of suffering that we inflict upon ourselves is nothing more than a 'not getting what we want' mentality. I know this is somewhat harsh and bleak and isn't a catch all rule. But take the Cap who gets themselves depressed because they lost their job and have taken a lesser paid job which doesn't fullfil them. They may be genuinely depressed and the feelings are real, but the source of them is that they didn't get what they wanted. Take the Scorpio who can't get over his ex having left him, his ex who he was madly and possessively in love with, who he wanted to share the whole world with. His depression is real, but again stems from not getting things as he wanted. Some signs probably bounce back quicker than others, but I think all signs suffer to some degree, but we 'judge' suffering based upon what we deem to be a subject worthy of suffering. Someone may feel genuine emotional pain when their credit card gets maxed out and she can't buy those killer designer heels. She may get depressed, but most of us would just shake our heads and consider her shallow. There are varying degrees of suffering and I think it likely that each sign suffers in its own way, but most of us have a list of 'acceptable' sufferings such as heartbreak, job loss etc.

          Naturally all signs suffer and no ones suffering are to shrug off as not being "as awful as-". But I think this is really about how well one manages to get over the suffering and start afresh - the capability to start over and not get stuck in a rut.

          It's here that I think capricorn has the hardest time because of its saturnian and manifestive nature in combination with its tendency to focus on its duty in the cold reality on top of the distance towards its inner feelings, not to mention that capricorn seldom look at the opportunities or the joy of things but rather the problems that aren't yet fixed and its duty and grey devotion to its principles.

          Now, I have to clarify that of course capricorn is capable of starting afresh and also being happy and all that, I'm mostly talking about the sign in theory right now.
          • Lately i met some really great aries folks and they have change my whole perspective on that sign. Until recently i mostly couldnt stand them much (aries sun or pronaunces aries people) but now i enjoy hanging out with them. Thats cool. And lately i was surranded by many capricorn and aquarians, they are pretty awesome

              I'm totally into people who aren't into astrology. I've met two women lately - an Aries and an Aquarian - who loathe people who are obsessed with astrology.

              My kinda girls.

              Oh yeah: I have their astrodata.

              Hot.

                Hypebole

                You are seriously embarassing yourself by repeatedly being here. Is your interest in life to vainly try and make people feel bad about themselves over the internet by flaunting your own density? It's quite fascinating what a strange moron you must be.
                Your misdirected try to interact with other people should really be spent on something else.
                • sugarmoonpoison,

                  You said:
                  "You are seriously embarassing yourself by repeatedly being here. Is your interest in life to vainly try and make people feel bad about themselves over the internet by flaunting your own density?"

                  I think Hyperbole's only interest is in being a troll and getting people to respond to Hyperbole's comments. It's that desire for the "spotlight" at all costs, even if it is only to be yelled at and screamed at...at least it's SOME form of attention and Hyperbole wants it. The best advice I ever heard on the Internet about how to handle these situations with posters like Hyperbole is: "Don't feed the trolls". Trolls are starved for attention. Let them starve.

                  Unfeedingly,

                  Tim
        • >>Some signs probably bounce back quicker than others, but I think all signs suffer to some degree, but we 'judge' suffering based upon what we deem to be a subject worthy of suffering.<<

          I agree with this. I feel that pain and suffering is relative. If a shopaholic feels truly depressed that she could not get those designer heels, who is to say she doesn't? I think it must be a manifestation of a deep, neglected hollowness in her. We look at a ravaged mother in a war-torn country trying to scrape up enough food for her kids and say "now that is real suffering." A legless man begging for money on the street is a "true" survivor (and he is, of course, but...). What this does, I think, is often deny and invalidate our own pain at home. In the western world we apparently have so much materialistically at our fingertips, we seemingly have every resource within our grasp. We are ashamed to complain about our normal, human, existential suffering. We oppress pain that is not legless, homeless, war-torn, etc. and then maybe take a symbolic or literal pill to smooth everything over.

          Like my late, greatest friend (a Leo man) once said when I felt wrong for feeling sad over something that I thought should be minor: "Pain is pain."

          About Cappys: One of the characteristics, or Humors, that Saturn bestowed upon Capricorns is Melancholia. Well, it can be quite beautiful for poetry and vampire-y things. But maybe it makes us kinda look like we suffer more?

          I know I have suffered a lot, relatively speaking. I am aware of Saturnian limitations...oh yes. But I am learning to live the idea that I can take the pain and transform it internally, into something I can USE in positive ways. I guess that sounds trite, but it really does seem to boil down to acknowledging the internal suffering and then hopefully turning it into something powerful.

          Oh yeah, and just in case I forgot to mention it -- Leos rule!! :)

                Because Book, I'm here to save America from its own unfortunate Plain of Dumbness. Obama tasked me to do so.

                Therefore, I have to start with the more gullible groups first: Christians and Astrologers

                "The world is flat"

                "The world is 10,000 years old"

                "Jesus is Lord"

                "Scorpios are this way"

                "intelligent people have this configuration"

                "Libras are hot fucks"

                You see? Ignorance takes myriad forms in our world.

                Obama tasked me to change that.

                Isn't he a Leo?

                There's a Leo I'd really like to fuck - I bet she's smoking in bed.

                But that's neither here nor there and the Aquarian fuckbuddy is really spectacular as well as very smart in a compatible and compelling way.

                  Look -

                  Americans aren't the only ones who practice astrology, and believing in and practicing something you don't agree with, doesn't automatically make someone stupid or gullible by default.

                  You aren't funny and you aren't enlightening anybody. All you do is come in and verbally attack people. It's not like you even provide any kind of logical supporting evidence for your thoughts or anything, and President Obama is completely irrelevant to the topic.

              Yes, it really seems to be common to admire ones descendant sign. I think that is because the Ascendant is your near characteristics while the descendant is your more obscure, abstract you that you need to become clear about. Often we need to mirror the descendant and see the reflection of it in for instance a partner or someone else which is why the descendant is linked to partners, but astrologers often fail to mention that the descendant sign is also a part of oneself - the part that is clouded and needs to be clearified, reflected and fullfilled.

              If one thinks of the ascendant as the rising sign - the characteristics of a person which is obvious and out in the open, the descendant is the descending sign - characteristics which are obscured by shadows but still very much there under the surface which creates the mystique for us. It's very much there but we still really don't know where or in what shape so we need a mirror for it and thereby also admire those who manages to embody this side of ourselves.

              I've seen some cases where people are fascinated by their IC sign as well, but the fascination for the Descendant have been most evident.

            Cap is my favorite sign, for many reasons, and I think the melancholy often grants a sarcastically-inclined humor. It catches you unaware sometimes, and leaves you in stitches. I just wish that those w/ strong Cap weren't so secretive and closed-off about their feelings (even to those most close to them) which usually run very deep.

            A lot of Leo-lovers. I went through a Leo period in my late teens-early 20's (a long-term relationship w/ a Leo stellium too - my first natal birth chart reading), and I am very much over it. My best friends have Leo Moons, though.

    Sugarmoon,
    Those descriptive reasons are great! I forgot to give my reasons for mine:

    Leos: because they evoke a breathless heroism, and the promise of a new, beaming day. I don't really understand them as a sign, it's really an individual basis for me of knowing what Leo embodies. There's a subtle arrogance around them that in most signs would feel unreasonable, but the ones I know are just so affectionate and warm nonetheless. And frustratingly sexy....Leo men can make me a bit of a fool :}

    I love sunlight and hate long Canadian winters. I can feel Leo's ruling luminary shining through - my longtime friend Kelly literally brightens up my day just by talking with me. Of course they are not perfect, but they have huge, generous hearts, and for me, they are best as close friends rather than romantic. I feel like I stretch my generosity muscles when I'm with a Leo friend, as they (and astrology) help remind me to try showing my appreciation more often for the ones I love, in general. They have been similar to Scorpios and Pisces for me in that I feel especially comfortable being my self around them.

    And there ya have it, my "Ode to Leo" :D

    And why people who have crowded 12th houses? umm... I don't know why the attraction just yet. I would like to figure that out.

      C minor

      Yes, leos sure aren't perfect but they do have huge generous hearts. Both my mother and my best friend are leos and they really do have an assuring, sympathetic warmth. My mother even looks like the sun, she's always beaming and smiling and she has wide smiling bright eyes and golden skin which is ironic because I'm a cancer (ruled by the moon) and I'm pale with darker hair and big, deep eyes so together we really look like the sun and the moon =)

    • Hmmm well I've always love my Aries people but I have even more of a greater appriciation for them now. I live with my fiance now and although it's been a hard transition for me (I'm mostly fixed made up and he was deployed to Iraq for a long time) it's been mainly good for me. I've become more open, more social, more blunt (is that good or bad?).

      For so long all by myself I slipped into the darkness that I feel so comfortable in as most Scorps do and refused to come out to enjoy the sun. My Aries coaxed me out and now it's almost enjoyable ; )

      He made me feel what it was to love with passion again. It's like waking the dead.
  • I am wanting to find/hang with those that have these things but are not as many around me...........
    But what I want in planetary traits isn't quite equal to sign traits.

    problem solving with real world empathy:

    SUN (Integration) SATURN (control/plan)
    Librans? Arieans?

    optimistic camaderie:

    MECURY (communication)
    NEPTUNE (emoting more refined and balanced than Moon)
    Sagittareans? Leos? Aquarians? a grounded positive Pisces?

    balanced desiveness for plan of strong action

    VENUS (balance/harmony) MARS (assertive ACTION)
    TaureansVirgos?Scorpions?

    But if you mean what is coming to me?
    looking back two months I am surronded by people with spring (Apr/May)birthdays, Leos and my usual company of Dec/JAN birthdays.

    Aries Taurus.. though coincidentally a huge number have Cap/Sag or Leo as /ASC -moon
    Son Teacher- Aries/Cap -Leo

    Bro In Law- Leo/Can -Sag
