How Each Sign Walks and Moves!
Watch how each sign walks and moves! Each Zodiac Sign “energizes” its own part of the body and this gives each sign its own unique manner of walking.
ARIES~ Ruling Sign of “The Head”.
Aries starts the whole idea, beginning this analysis by being the sign that rules the head. When the fires ignite, the flames surge. Energies are positive and expansive, driven by the forces of cardinal fire (Yang energies at the max.).
The Ram charges headfirst into life, into a room or into any conversation. The back curves steadily forward from the hips on up, to provide “shock absorbers” for this creature’s cranial battering ram. (Naturally, it’s topped with two crowned horns of hair). The Ram’s body language dictates that the head will lead Aries into any action. It’s no wonder they have prominent scars on their foreheads.
TAURUS~ Rules the Neck & Shoulders
Polarities change with every sign, to keep the creative act in balance. Consequently, Arie’s unstoppable force turns into immovable mass, when the sun cycles into Taurus. The polarity switch presents us with the creator’s most definitive “Yin”, as it it combines physical Earth (a passive/feminine sign) with the pattern of Fixity. The expressions become stable and stilled, as the weight of fixed earth settles heavily on Taurus’ shoulders.
In this lazy energy field, these bovine creatures seem immobilized, as they contentedly sense the world around them. The mass of energy in the broad shoulders pushes the legs firmly downward and slightly to the back. The weight places a slight “bow” in the legs, as it bogs the feet firmly in the mud. The resulting body language makes movement difficult. We see why Taureans are so contented, staying put.
GEMINI~ Rules the Lungs, Arms and Hands
Polarities change again when the Mutable Air of Gemini skitters into the room. With every breath, the lungs feed oxygen to the brain and electrical energy to all the nerves. From this center out, these electrical energies divide– to run outward into both of Gemini’s arms. The energy is then scattered asunder by the whirling hands and flying fingers.
The propeller-like hands pull the upper torso forward, blowing the feet to the rear. The head flaps, as it flips from side to side, acting like a rudder in the breeze. With every step the rudder changes its angle to divert the winds, and this sends the winged messenger sailing off on another course of flight.
CANCER~ Ruler of the Chest and Breasts
When the chatter ebbs, the polarity turns, and the emotions stir within. The cardinal waters are restless, drawn out by the lunar pull, forcing the Cancer Crab to make its move.
As the crabs’ claws cling tight to their chests, their upper torsos turn to the side as they “lean into the wave”.
Following tidal currents, they side-step to the front. The chest and breasts are peculiarly angled, to avoid the oncoming waves, and this makes Cancer’s assault noticeably less aggressive. This passive quality is enhanced by the fact that, in a moment, the returning tidal waters will regularly carry them backwards on their path. Consequently, Crabs will often step to the rear, to redirect themselves forward towards their new destination.
LEO~ Ruler of the Heart
Mid-summer places everything in “bake mode” as the heat warms everything to the core. In this expansive, positive shift, the fires are fixed, to concentrate the heat in Leo‘s giant hearth of a heart. Such concentration results in “radiating heat” and this makes Leos quite warm hearted souls– and also quite self centered ones.
Leo’s need to concentrate the energy here, to feed their heart’s desires. This expansive energy fills Leo’s huge barrel-sized chest, and it gives them an appearance of confidence and pride. The proud, cat-like strut easily draws attention as they paw, purr, preen and parade on their imaginary stage. It is quite obvious that these lions love to put on a show.
VIRGO~ Ruler of the Stomach
The spotlight fades when the energies are once again polarized to turn within, to digest and critique Leo’s flamboyant show.
As Virgo‘s analizes the creative work, everything is not so perfect; This brings a lot of worry. That’s why Virgo stomachs are so tight and tense. When they offer their “critical services”, Virgos’ rounded tummy pouches protrude– drawing their midsections to the front. The nervous energy of Mutable Earth produces noticeable twitches and shivers.
The mercuric hands, when they are not pointing and counting, will usually hover close to Virgo’s body– to protect the receding “virginal parts”. (With Gemini, the expansive Mercury ruled sign, the hands fly about at some distance from the body).
LIBRA~ Ruler of the Kidneys/ Lower Back
At the fall Equinox, it’s the most beautiful time of year as the Sun enters the other side of the year. At this time, energies turn outward, moving to the sides, to keep the aggressive (polar-opposite) Aries energies in balance.
Libra energies move side to side, as they center on the body’s mid- fulcrum point. The arms hang loosely to the sides and the hands gently fan the air to keep the body in a perfectly aligned vertical position. Libras often appear like models walking on display. They even seem to have an imaginary book balanced on their heads.
SCORPIO~ Ruler of the Hips & Genitalia
As Halloween nears, life’s forces wane as the darkness dominates. Energies turn within, as Scorpios hold on, to rejuvenate the body and spirit with whatever vital resources remain. Scorpio’s know what is of value, and what to discard. (In Scorpio’s ruling area of the body, we eliminate toxic waste, consummate our feelings with others and bring new beings to life).
Scorpio’s fixed water gives the impression that the forces are in their control. (They usually are). Their body stance enhances an appearance of personal power. Note how the frontal tilt of the pelvis sends the spine swaying to the rear. At the top, it curves sharply to the front, tilting the head forward. This creates the recognizable eagle profile.
SAGITTARIUS Ruled by “The Thighs”.
At the leanest month of the year, energies expand again, only to dissipate to “as far as they can go”. However, with knowledge, we can create abundance out of “all that is”. The Archer sees the wider picture, and their spirit believes “anything is possible”.. (To celebrate an abundant Universe, we give thanks on Thanksgiving Day).
When the centaur trots into the room, the high stepping thighs fly here and there, creating commotion and chaos, perhaps tipping over a lamp or two. Mutable fire makes them noticeably scattered, but it also gives them a highly jovial spirit. The large thighs and hips, and the pear shaped torso give them the appearance of a horse. Say hello, before they gallop away.
CAPRICORN~ Ruling Sign of “The Knees”.
At the Winter Solstice, it is the shortest day of the year. To Capricorn, “It’s all up from here”– and this cardinal earth sign ends up always looking ahead, as these goats make their climb to the highest peaks. Starting from “the lowest point” can leave some of these goats cynical and hard, as they hold on to their gloomy, minimalist view.
As the goat moves ahead, they take their cautious earthy steps, concentrating all efforts in the knees. As these bony knobs pull the body forward, the buttock shifts to the rear, creating stooped shoulders and a down turned head. The stoop makes them appear reserved and timid. The tilted head keeps the goat always looking up! This body seems built for endurance, not speed.
AQUARIUS~ Ruling Sign of “The Calves”.
In the doldrums of winter, if we look clearly, we can see the light at the end of the tunnel! Light is building again, and hopes are high. In the fixed meditations of Aquarius, the light is brighter than we can imagine.
As their calves fan the air, the lower bodies of most Aquarians become a hovercraft. This concentration of fixed air pushes the body off the ground. Soon (with a little more concentration), they’re flying away in the clouds! The upper body curves to the rear, providing minimal resistance to the celestial winds.
PISCES~ Rules the Feet
In the final month of a living year, “everything comes together” when the creative process is brought to completion. In this gathering in of energies. all thoughts, desires and physical forms blend into the universal solvent of Pisces‘ Mutable Water, melding all pieces into one. Complete and whole, this creative adventure comes to an end; It can now begin again, to make itself part of something greater in design.
Meandering along, with paddling feet leading the way, Pisces swims in a sea of glimmering illusions. The rest of the body floats behind, bobbing along in the undulating currents of mutable water. The hands cling to the side, mocking fish fins. By splashing alternately, they keep the wandering ship on its destined course.
