One perfect astrology chart

If you could re-engineer yourself a ‘perfect’ astrology chart, what attributes would you assimilate from each Sun Sign? Just for fun, let’s build the first model – theoretically.

Aries: March 21-April 19 

An Aries is brave and would love to be the hero or heroine in someone’s life. Their past lives regressions likely reveal a wagon train master, an intrepid explorer, the caveman who discovered fire. A quick decision-maker, Aries knows his/her strength is not in the details. Romantic at heart but unable to grasp the ‘little nothings’ much played up in old movies. An entrepreneur, choose Aries traits to get your new mega-corporation started and initially funded.

Taurus: April 20-May 20

Steady and loyal, Taurus builds on a solid foundation, patiently working for years to achieve success. That business or winery, successful farm or regional chain of expensive boutiques will be around to hand over to the grandkids some day; that is, if Taurus can be persuaded to retire. Determination and practical knowledge are evident in every strategic move this earth sign makes. If this Sun sign isn’t the banker, they’re very popular with all of the local financial executives.

Gemini: May 21-June 21

Able to ‘chat up’ anyone from royalty to a drag queen or politician to preacher, Gemini communicates well and often in torrents. A quick thinker, each Twin never considers taking a risk on their own powers to be a gamble at all – and often the risk pays off big time. Travel is more than a hobby or only for summer vacations, and you can expect the Gemini to pick up foreign languages easily. Dating a Gemini is fun, never dull and often involves unusual foods or locations.

Cancer: June 22-July 22

Home is comfortable, secure against drafts, rain, fire or plague and paid off before the end of the mortgage period. A Moonchild is quite content with family antiques and treasures, whether valuable in more than sentiment or not. Some stocks and bonds, as well as cash and maybe a little gold bullion are stashed in a very secure bank box somewhere. Expect meals served on china and the sideboard gleaming with polish while a lovely Irish linen tablecloth graces the mahogany dining table.

Leo: July 23-August 22

Turn over that special party to a Leo’s talents and prepare to host the Social Event of the Year. The food will be the finest caterers can produce, the aged scotch or wine perfect, the aperitifs minute bits of perfection. Invitations will be original and witty, the entertainment just short of a cabaret show, and your guests will talk about this event for years. Of course, the bills may flood your mailbox for years too, but to garner a political or diplomatic appointment, or IPO sellout, it was worth every thousand.

Virgo: August 23-September 22

Organization is this Sun sign’s middle name. Expect seasonings to be in alphabetical order in a spotless kitchen, with bedroom closets arranged in either color groups or by outfit. Sheets are rotated regularly for wear. Bills will be paid on time or perhaps two days early, and usually a spare whatever will be in close proximity to whatever just ran out, whether catsup or shampoo. Working from home, his or her desk mirrors the one at a former office, being cleared of all but one or two files, mouse and computer.

Libra: September 23-October 22

Ask a member of this Sun sign to give you all the aspects of a project, good and bad, and be prepared to take notes. A Libra will consider everything from how many workers will be needed to start and complete it, what the likely pay scale should be and how many months it will take. Watching the Scales in action can be fascinating, as right of way, easements and the impact on the immediate neighborhood are all taken into the mix. Will parking be a problem? Lighting? Is water use controlled fairly? What about air pollution?

Scorpio: October 23-November 21

Study a Scorpio if you want to learn how to keep a secret literally to the grave. Confiding in this Sun sign will never reverberate in headlines in the papers or blazoned across the trolls’ favorite sites. Once you’ve proven yourself to be trustworthy and close-mouthed as well, rest assured a loyal Scorpion will sting to death any of your enemies should they get the chance. An implacable enemy but an irreplaceable friend, this sign always plays for keeps.

Sagittarius: November 22-December 21

If doldrums are overwhelming you, call a Sagittarian for rescue. They’ll also respond to a lost dog, an abandoned kitten, an elderly woman without relatives to help her navigate the complexities of modern life. If you need help moving, painting or recovering from a broken heart, let the Archer know. And then be willing to go along with whatever he or she prescribes as ‘just what you need,’ whether it’s ice cream cones at the zoo or forgetting your woes as the two of you combine talents to help someone else.

Capricorn: December 22-January 19

The first thing you want for your lifestyle makeover is a Capricorn’s steady, calm input, mapping out your first, middle and last moves. Strategy is always being figured, whether for getting a good parking place at the big game or coaxing a toddler into pajamas before midnight. A roll call of reference books can be given you off the top of the Capricorn’s head, for everything from legal advice to the best recipe for Shrimp Scampi. Expect plenty of plain vanilla advice that’s worth much more than the richest, creamy boutique small-batch gelato.

Aquarius: January 20-February 18

‘It’s not what you know, it’s who you know’ is never more true than when you’re dealing with an Aquarius. Need a chimney sweep? Done. He’ll call you to set up an appointment. Do you need a new Doggy Daycare Center? The Waterbearer just happens to know three people who all have highly-rated facilities. What about the expertise of a Wicca practitioner?  A water-witcher? Professional window washer? Tile layer? Mosaic designer? And all close friends with the Aquarian standing at the center of your dilemma. Dilemma solved.

Pisces: February 19-March 20

Empathy seems to be in very short supply today, but not when you’re dealing with a sensitive Pisces. Their deeply-felt emotions have attuned them to the subtle nuances of others’ pain or plights. They’ll cry with you, give you their last handkerchief and fix you a cuppa to stop the hiccups caused by sobbing for too long. Practical solutions may not be too quick to arise, but sometimes you just need to experience the gamut of emotions to work through the turbulence.

Realize there can never be a perfect chart, but speculation on building one is a wonderful distraction from the ordinary. MZ
