This week I decided to do a bit of research and look through my records at the hundreds of birth charts I have done through the years. I was wondering about the sun signs of the folks who came to me to have their chart done. Which sun sign showed up the most? Which sun sign showed up the least?
All twelve signs were represented in good numbers but:
PISCES were highest
Followed very closely by LEOS
LIBRANS were third
Second to last were CAPRICORNS
and last were the TAURUS folks
Of course, this is just a small cross section of the population and my personal statistics only; yet it is most interesting to me.
Does this surprise you?
We owe a lot of gratitude to the inquiring mind of Carl Jung, who explored beyond where more traditional scientists even thought to look. His interest and involvement with astrology helped with the revival of scientific interest which we see today. He was also very interested in the spiritual nature and where we fit into the huge universe. He searched through scientific and philosophical data for examples of apparent coincidences, which could not possibly have occurred by chance. This led him to his interest in astrological data and he then began experiments with married couples – a study of nearly 500 marriages involving 1000 horoscopes. They were paired off and comparisons were made of the charts of people both with their spouses and with other group members. Jung found a very significant tendency in married people where the woman’s moon sign was in close degree in the same sign as the man’s sun sign. Jung is recognized throughout the world as one of the greatest thinkers of the century. Jung’s interest and belief in the reality of
astrology as an operating principle has helped with the present wave of popular interest, even reaching the White House in a previous Administration.
Astrology is finally being examined with the respect that its history and tradition deserve. Other statistical studies have been done showing very interesting correlations between the planets and professions. It seems that famous doctors and scientists were born as Mars was coming over the horizon. Artists, painters, and musicians were not linked to the presence of any planet, but seemingly avoided Mars and Saturn Rising Signs. Soldiers and politicians often were born under Jupiter rising, but this seldom produced scientists or doctors. Solo performers such as writers or long distance runners were linked to the moon more than any other planet. So it can be seen that the planet rising at birth has a close link with the chosen profession and the sun sign, Midheaven and the 10th House of Career and Reputation also play their part in determining what a person does in the world.
The popular newspaper columns give guidance on the basis of sun sign only. Your sun sign is only a part of you.
