Title: Astrology and the Sage
Post by: Ulla on June 08, 2011, 09:48:46 PM
SAGE

Sages seek both wisdom and self-expression. Because they are after truth and wisdom, they involve themselves in study - not in the way Scholars do - but in the study of life itself, with themselves as the main subject. One way they do this is through acting. The stage is a place where they can try out the various characters, experiences, and emotions they come across in their explorations. It allows them to examine the nuances of the emotions and the human condition without living the emotions, which would not suit their style or their goals.
   Fire and air signs, especially Gemini and Sagittarius, are most suited to them because Sages require the freedom to explore their environment and themselves independent of the needs of others. Fire and air signs are useful because they help them to observe life freshly and objectively. Leo is a favorite sign, too. It encourages them to explore their creativity and expressive potential, which is another way they come to understand themselves and others. Aquarius is also favored because its independent, tolerant, and progressive outlook suits their goals. However, Aquarius’ group orientation does not appeal to them.
   Sages invest little time in exploring relationships and the emotional side of life because they need freedom to accomplish their goals. They leave this side of life to others, except as it relates to their goals. Nevertheless, they frequently choose Scorpio because it allows them to study others and themselves. However, the side of Scorpio that becomes entangled in relationships is not for them. Once they have learned the watery lessons, they usually stay away from water signs, though they may continue to choose Scorpio to hone their psychological understanding.
   Occasionally, Sages choose earth signs to foster stability and responsibility. They need to learn to handle everyday responsibilities. This is usually accomplished in early lifetimes so that later they can devote themselves to their explorations.
   The Sage’s North Node is most frequently in Sagittarius or Gemini, sometimes in Scorpio, and less frequently in Aquarius or Leo. Their life tasks are likely to involve teaching, speaking, writing, or drama.

I'm a 6th Mature Sage with Virgo Sun, Aquarius midheaven and Gemini Ascendant.   As John said in another post, its not the actual sun sign, ascendent or mideheaven/nodes that are important its the aspects within a chart and how that chart interacts with other people.   That being said?  Most people guess I'm a Scorp, which I am most definitely NOT.
