Which Element of the Horoscope are You?Written by Alma De La Cruz
No doubt that millions of persons begin their journey rushing through newspapers to see daily horoscope. We want horoscope to tell us positive things will happen in next 24 hours, like how will somebody look at us nicely, how fast we will be rich, or our love compatibility. In contrast, we are less interested to come up with a horror-scope like ‘today is not your day for love, business deals are not in stars for you today. ’
But first of all, which element of horoscope are You? Hmm… don’t really know what horoscope is? Well, horoscope is an astrological chart for a specific person or group that correlates each zodiac sign as they are crossed by Sun, Moon and planets and position of planets in astrology. Now, elements Fire, Earth, Air and Water are based on ancient Greek philosophy; they are building blocks of life: solid earth upon which we stand, running water we use as a resource, air we breathe and fire which keeps us warm and aids in creation of additional resources. The horoscope elements reflect a quality of human nature and correspond also with Tarot: Fire = Wands; Earth = Coins; Air = Swords; Water = Cups.
Here are list of Sun Signs elements, but if you still don’t know, ask mom for your birthday and keep reading this:

Playing VirginWritten by Arthur Zulu
Yesterday: I visited a maternity ward to rejoice with a mother over her new child. I went to an abortion center to see a girl who aborted a baby. I made my way to a war zone to commiserate with a raped woman.
Today: I meet mother in market and she says she is a vestal virgin. I see abortionist in a school play ground and she vows she is Diana. I meet raped woman by a riverside and she swears she is Lucretia.
Now: I go to woods and strike a meditative pose. I am not thinking of Nirvanas neither am I dreaming of Abraham’s bosom. But of affairs of yesterday. I keep asking myself: “Why are all women playing virgin?”
