The 12 Archetypes

 

The archetypes of the natural zodiac are representations of life’s natural order.  Over thousands of years we have used these multi faceted twelve categories of energy to make sense of the way life works and how our ideas about ourselves fit in with the movement of the cosmos.  Click on some of the descriptions below and see if you can feel a resonance!

 

Aries, Taurus, and Gemini are the archetypes in our development in which we are born into the world and begin to explore, the resources and values we need to survive, and the labels and meaning we assign everything so we can communicate with others.

Cancer, Leo, and Virgo archetypes are the formation of our self-identity, self-expression, and self-analysis.  This is where your child becomes their own unique human being who expresses their knowledge, desires, and talents.  We become emotionally aware and also aware of our shortcomings. We feel, we love, and we want to be noticed. And if we are not validated we begin to self-improve.

Libra, Scorpio, and Sagittarius are the archetypes of relationship to others, to our deeper psychological self, and to the cosmos.  Here we begin to see ourselves are a part of a much larger whole.  We learn to give and take and maintain relationships to people, work, and our environment.  We begin to look deeper into the workings of our mind.  And this opens us up to the greater workings of the universe.

Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces are about our place in this experience as a whole. Capricorn is our responsibility and role in the structure of life.  Aquarius is how our uniqueness contributes to the whole. And Pisces is finding the ultimate meaning of it all.
