Replenishing Our Energy

Every astrological chart shows us ways to replenish ourselves after expending energy in our daily activities. The Sun, Moon, Ascendent and placements in the "5th house" of recreation and entertainment all show how we can best have fun.

ARIES enjoys activities that keep us young and vital, including competitive sports, aggressive play, creative arts, military hobbies, war games and working out.

TAURUS has great endurance and patience in athletics, once it is motivated to participate. It loves gardening, fashion design, music, art, woodwork, jewelry making and shopping for items of both beauty and practical value.

GEMINI enjoys hiking, biking, driving for pleasure, chat lines, air travel, television, reading, special interest classes, bookclubs and workshops.

CANCER enjoys gourmet cooking, visiting museums, collecting antiques and gems, rock-hounding for geological specimens, and water sports, or at least soaking in a hot tub.

LEO enjoys theatre, both as performer and audience, dance, speculation, athletics, hobbies, beauty pagents, and power-lifting for image, appearance and prowess. Then it enjoys the applause.

VIRGO enjoys health fairs, workshops in healing, crafts involving precise detail, playing with pets, or even showing them off in animal competitions.

LIBRA loves interior design and other aesthetic pursuits, such as fashion and accesories, so it may frequent home and style shows and stores specializing in art objects. As an air sign, it also enjoys intellectual pursuits that can be shared with partners. It values peace rallies more than sports.

SCORPIO enjoys the occult and may participate in psychic fairs or research. Sex is recreational, not just physical or emotional. It also has a taste for the macabre, with Halloween as its favorite holiday.

SAGITTARIUS loves long-distance travel, philosophical classes, the pursuit of higher knowlege, assertive sports, religious retreats and horses.

CAPRICORN enjoys antique fairs, research into the past, re-enactments of historical events, political campaigns, and collecting timepieces.

AQUARIUS creates inventions. It enjoys international travel, not just for a brief visit, but also in order to really study other cultures. Electronics hold particular interest.

PISCES is the surfer, swimmer, scuba-diver and boater, with a special attraction to large creatures like dolphins, whales and horses. Its natural intuitive abilities sometimes draw it into psychic research and healing telepathic connections with animals.
