What Planet is Your Family From? Uranus or Neptune?

Written by Nancy R. Fenn

The Neptunian ideal is for perfect union, communion,repparttar ecstasy of never having to leaverepparttar 122358 mother's care orrepparttar 122359 father's protection. The family ideal is for a seamless blending of personalities into an organic whole which breaths and sighs as one. (The Uranians are now horrified, thinking, "I can't breath!")

The god Neptune ruledrepparttar 122360 ocean and it is an oceanic oneness that Neptunians crave. They secretly desire an umbilical attachment that transcends all rituals of coming of age. No matter how oldrepparttar 122361 children get in a Neptunian family, they are expected to return home for holidays, take close care of aging parents, observe all hallowed family traditions, raise their children in time honored sacred ways and marry someone who is willing to morph into and be absorbed by this entropic amorphous constellation of pulsating sensors and feelers.

The rooms and hallways ofrepparttar 122362 Neptunian family home ring withrepparttar 122363 angel chorus, “We’re so close.” “We do everything together.” “I married my brother’s best friend.” “My mother and I write to each other every day but we don’t open them. That way when one of us dies, we can always be in touch.” Family members in Neptunian homes make sacrifices for each other that could make a saint blush. After all, to live your own life would be selfish.

Every once in awhile a Neptunian child gets into a Uranian family in order to elevate their sense of feeling connection, or a Uranian child gets into a Neptunian one to introduce fresh new ingredients intorepparttar 122364 “soup” so to speak. These children arrive when families have reached critical mass and help them make leaps in evolution. Families evolve just like people do.

Neptunian family members touch, cuddle and snuggle all their lives. Perhaps you have seen them, likerepparttar 122365 family that sat in front of me atrepparttar 122366 Pavarotti concert who got up atrepparttar 122367 break and went torepparttar 122368 bathroom together like those crack-the-whip lines we used to form onrepparttar 122369 ice skating rink. Some cultures are prone to Neptunian dynamics. I suspect that Third World countries incline that way because of interdependency needs that are accentuated in conditions of limited resources. Hardly anyone can stand alone in poverty. There are many coming of age movies today where a second generation, being raised inrepparttar 122370 United States or England, tries to come to terms with marrying outsiderepparttar 122371 Neptunian family’s expectations and moving brazenly outsiderepparttar 122372 family circle. “Bend it Like Beckham” is an example of a film with this theme.

Please don’t take these descriptions as critical. The qualities of Taurus and Pisces are invaluable in their proper spheres of influence. Astrology is not a critical tool. It is a tool of enlightenment. Something you read here and become conscious about may save your life.

Duke continues, “Capricornians [sic], who came last onrepparttar list, [are] typically described as patient and careful.”

No argument with that fromrepparttar 122357 professional astrologer. It’s no surprise Caps arerepparttar 122358 safest behindrepparttar 122359 wheel. They’rerepparttar 122360 safest at everything! Their patience and sense of responsibility are legendary. Imaginerepparttar 122361 thrill I felt inrepparttar 122362 passenger seat when I divorced my Gemini husband and began dating a Capricorn.

The great middle ground of this survey is held by sun signs in this order:

4 Virgo

5. Cancer

6. Aquarius

7. Aries

8. Leo

9. Libra

10. Sagittarius

11. Scorpio [and Capricorn in last position asrepparttar 122363 best drivers]

Is this what you would have expected? There is something else fascinating about this list.

The folks at SunCorp would have no way of knowing it but, Capricorn torepparttar 122364 side,repparttar 122365 signs inrepparttar 122366 last two positions and first two positions arerepparttar 122367 exact opposite. This tells us a great deal about polarities, doesn’t it? Scorpio is opposite Taurus and Sagittarius is opposite Gemini.

Sagittarians may stay safe in their carsrepparttar 122368 same way they do in life, by having superbly developed higher minds (Ninth House). Another name for this mind is intuition. The highly developed sense of flow and good timing characteristic of Sagittarians is what makes themrepparttar 122369 lucky sign. Furthermore, their minds are right at home dealing with traffic patterns, flow and spatial relations.

Scorpios, onrepparttar 122370 other hand, may stay safe because they are intimately involved withrepparttar 122371 inner lives of others inrepparttar 122372 same way their opposite sign Taurus is defended against this information. Scorpios are sensitive to energy – whether it is a foot away or thousands of miles away -- and can feel someone “coming up from behind” at many different levels. Scorpios know if you’ve had a fight with your wiferepparttar 122373 night before or if you’re thinking about embezzling or having an affair with your best friend’s husband. That’s why we always feel like they can see right through us. They can.

Scorpios would berepparttar 122374 drivers who would instinctively “wake up” in time to let a cocaine addict pass them at 95 or give a wide berth to a passive aggressive soccer mom hassling two kids inrepparttar 122375 back seat and a phone conversation with her husband all atrepparttar 122376 same time.

Where does your sign fall in this survey? Whatever your sun sign, let’s all learn from this survey and be safe onrepparttar 122377 road.
