Astrology and the Artisan
« on: June 08, 2011, 09:47:57 PM »

The Artisan’s goal is creativity and self-expression. Their creations take many forms: art, music, dance, poetry, pottery, crafts, decorating, design, fashion, jewelry, and anything else that incorporates a new, fresh approach or style. The Artisan’s urge to create comes from deep within and does not let them rest until it has been expressed. They see life through different eyes than most and catch subtleties that others without their keen sensitivities miss. Their fresh viewpoint, which they bring to others through their creations, renews us. Their work could be considered spiritual, for their creations reflect the transcendent and sublime aspect of life. Thus, they have an important mission, though it is not always recognized as such.
   Artisans usually have charts strong in water and fire, the creative elements. Water provides the sensitivity to capture creative inspirations from the unconscious realm and beyond, and fire provides the drive to express them. Earth is needed in their early lifetimes to develop the skills and discipline needed to materialize their creations. However, later on it is likely to add too much practicality and conventionality to be useful. Whether or not air is present depends on what form the creativity takes. It will be present if the creations call for it, as they do in creative writing or poetry; otherwise, it may not.
   Any placement of the Moon’s nodes is possible with Artisans. However, the North Node in Cancer (water), Pisces (water), Virgo (earth), Taurus (earth), Leo (fire), or Libra (air) is more likely than other placements. These are also their favorite signs. Taurus and Libra, because Venus rules them, are favored, as is Virgo for its craftsmanship and attention to detail, and Leo for its urge to create.
