Independence Day is the day to celebrate our freedom and to be proud of our country which has given us so much. On the occasion of the 60th Independence day of India, Ganesha begins this article with a Salute to the National Flag.
Today's Astrological anthem is `Sense of Freedom in each Sun Sign'. Here, Ganesha would like to throw light on the craving for freedom in each sun sign.
Fire Signs i.e. Aries, Sagittarius and Leo and Air Signs Gemini, Libra and Aquarius desire freedom the most. There is perfect logic behind this.
Four elements are:
Prime source of Fire is Sun. Can we control its freedom to rotate on its axis? No. Nor can we make it revolve around other planets. Hence, it is self-dependent in a way and we can't do anything but "have to" accept its freedom.
Earth has to follow this fireball called Sun. Earth is the base but it does not have freedom as it cannot grow as per its wish or desire. It just has to maintain the base.
Air is uncontrollable; we can't catch/control the freedom of wind either. Similarly, water can be contained in any vessel and it will adjust according to the shape of that vessel.
Nowadays, each and every individual desires to be self-dependant and once this is achieved, it generally instils sense of freedom in him/her. Ganesha would now explain `who, where, how and what' of this freedom. Let us consider the basic 12 sun signs for this matter.
Arians need freedom out of leadership. If they are given a job in which they have to follow others, they probably may not be able to utilize their potential optimally. However, if they are given an opportunity to lead, they will surely give extraordinary performance. This dedicated and enthusiastic sign has tendency to set and change targets. Hence, they also need freedom to design their own modus operandi.
Taurus is the only Fixed and Earth Sign. They seek freedom but end up depending on others specifically because it is an earth sign. There are two areas, in which they would require freedom and generally achieve too. One is `freedom of expression through voice' and another is `Money Money Money.'
Oh Dear first Air sign. They require freedom of action. Most books and astrologers call them `flirts'. The main reason behind this is that they require freedom even in relationship matters! No one can stop the flow of wind. Why even set it? It's free - as it is. They also take liberty of enjoying `freedom of speech'. They can just set their tongue free to express anything that is around with or without thinking.
Cancerians need freedom of expression but this is more on emotional side. Ganesha has observed that they always feel too constrained when their emotions are suppressed. Best way to keep them happy is to allow them freedom on the emotional front. If you practice this, they will be all yours and shower the love and care that you would not even have imagined.
Leo is a fire sign and source of energy. They feel free to perform- be it stage or life. In fact, they are at their best when provided with ground/stage to perform. This freedom of expression is different than any other sign because they do not believe in performing backstage. No one can stop a Leo from enjoying this freedom - be it grass court or clay!
Although this is a Dual sign, it has only one character in its symbol. This noticeable point inspires Ganesha to convey this to you that you can hardly bind a Virgo. They can perform well, generally when set free. However, they have a systematic way of doing things. This means that they need freedom in their day to day activities and they also feel free when it comes to organizing things, daily routine and day-to-day activities. That is why Ganesha calls them `best schedulers'.
This Air Sign has its own way of enjoying freedom, which at first instance nobody would even notice or realise. They appear to be very dependant and `bound to circumstances'. However, Ganesha has observed that in practice, they actually enjoy freedom of balancing all the aspects of life. While they do this, they make you feel that they depend a great deal on your company but next moment they would express the same emotion in the similar way in front of someone else! They require total freedom as far as relations are concerned, specifically with the world outside.
This is fixed and watery sign. It is very easy to restrict a Scorpion's freedom but when you tie them, you never know when they will cut the thread to get rid of this tie and their next step might be biting you! Basically, they need emotional freedom and when they do not get it, obviously what else can a Scorpio do! However, going more in detail, Ganesha finds that as they are very passionate by nature, they also need freedom in personal life and areas.
Ruled by Jupiter, Archers would require freedom almost in every aspect of life. They prefer to express their knowledge freely. They love to flirt - freely! They can choose to go on a drive/ride freely. Okay, enough of `free' expressions. Actually, you cannot restrict a Sagittarian by drawing lines like `dos and don'ts' Main reason behind this is that there is so much fire with lots of wisdom inside that it is almost impossible to control them.
Capricornians can talk about ground realities at the same time aiming for the sky. Business tycoons do not build castles in the air. When they say something, they mean it, specifically if it is regarding work or progress. They need utmost freedom in their personal life so that ambitious Capricornians can go on achieving their targets. Because Sign Cancer falls in the seventh place from this sign, they go away from home in order to grow. This freedom allows them to achieve their targets.
Ganesha has never seen any `loner' Aquarian. They have a large circle of friends. So networking is the area where they require freedom. Electronic gadgets or progressive and futuristic things also attract them the most and they take freedom of trying such `new' things. Even if they are novice at something, they would take liberty of acting as if they are masters. This Air Sign rebels against restrictions in their life specifically against authoritarian people, because Sun is the ruler of seventh house from Aquarius. They use their freedom very intelligently.
Ganesha will not say that Pisceans are confused whether to have freedom or not! It is very clear that Fish would require freedom to swim free-style with smooth flow of water. We all know that Water and Emotion are synonymous. They should be able to express their confusions, dilemmas and problems freely. They also believe in setting the `tears' free with UB40 song "Tears from my eyes keep on falling". Let them set their emotional-self free and you will see that they will really be free from all the pains and worries in a while, at least till next morning!
Good luck and may Lord Ganesha bless you with due freedom.
Happy Independence Day to all Sun Signs
