About other people's energy


Well-known member
I've been interested in astrology for about 4-5 years now. For a long time i've always wondered about the astrological sign of new people i meet. That can of course be quite hard to find out, i usually don't ask about that.

The way i've been trying to decipher the sign the last ~2 years, is to "feel" the energy of the other person. More than 80% of the time i am very close to being correct.

My question is, how can you evolve this "skill"? I've met people that have been very accurate about guessing my own sign, in a short period of knowing me.

    Examine their appearance. If none of the obvious signs are there, look at the person carefully. What strikes you most about how they look?
    • Aries: High set and narrow facial bones, broad foreheads, rosy cheeks, strong, well-proportioned body, above or below average height, and dark or sandy colored hair, strong eyebrows as well as clear and penetrating eyes.
    • Taurus: Innocent, childlike eyes, full and thick, full lips, small/even teeth, and thick hair, slightly thicker than usual neck, attractive face.
    • Gemini: A devilish smile, full lips, average height, a well-proportioned chin, high cheekbones, thin or even bird-boned, pointy features, long fingers.
    • Cancer: Close-set eyes, innocent facial features, below average height, a fleshy body and short legs, usually have brown hair, a round face, a prominent forehead, small eyes, a short and upturned nose, and a full mouth. In essence, the upper body is invariably larger in proportion to the lower, which may make for a rather clumsy or top-heavy bodily appearance at times.
    • Leo: Glamorous, thick mane-like dark hair, large dark eyes, proud and confident expression(resembles a lion), usually tall, with thin waists, trim athletic legs.
    • Virgo: Fair skin, roundish head, delicately-shaped lips, large and clear eyes, small, symmetrical, and refined features, a high forehead, long arms and thin eyebrows, sometimes dull coloring,

    • Aquarius: A friendly and approachable expression, vague expression, finely chiseled features, above average height and a slender figure. Their eyes usually convey remoteness and have a dreamy quality. Aquarians also have average noses and lips that are full at the center and thin out toward the edges, physically attractive sometimes.
    • Pisces: Innocent features, delicate expression, Pisces natives tend to be middle to short stature with short limbs. They lean toward corpulence (obesity) in their later years.
    • Face - People born in the Spring tend to have an attractive face (not necessarily handsome or pretty, just striking): Aries, Taurus and Gemini

    Learn about astrological masculinity/femininity. It has little to do with being macho or girly. In fact, men with astrological femininity often compensate by acting macho (working out, claiming to be promiscuous or tough) and women with astrological masculinity often compensate by acting "girly" (wearing "girly" clothes and makeup, claiming to be emotional).
    • Astrologically masculine qualities: Independent, dates a lot, travels a lot, energetic, active, headstrong, talkative, confident, open-minded, rude, sexual, flirtatious, prefers to pursue a mate
    • Astrologically feminine qualities: Prefers long-term relationships, prefers to stay at home, needs more sleep, methodical, considerate, reliable, kind, stubborn, depends on others, polite, shy, prudish, prefers to be pursued
    • Here is the approximate ranking of signs from most masculine to most feminine: Aries, Sagittarius, Leo, Aquarius, Gemini, Libra, Scorpio, Capricorn, Taurus, Pisces, Cancer, Virgo

    Become familiar with the elements.
    • Fire (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius): Physical and active, tends to be passionate, confident, talented, charismatic, in good shape, into sports. In a word, the "doers."
    • Earth (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn): Physical and passive, tends to be introverted, confident, reliable, consistent, interested in many things. In a word, the "thinkers."
    • Air (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius): Mental and active, intelligent, energetic, charming, good with words, articulate, optimistic. In a word, the "talkers."
    • Water (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces): Mental, passive, and attractive, emotional or sensitive, likes to read, fantasize, look at art, passionate. In a word, the "feelers."

    Brad Pitt: He flirted his way from hobo to waiter to actor. His infectious smile and preference for films involving traveling, philosophy, history and nature all point to Sagittarius

    Observe their behavior, especially in conflicts or while working in groups. We all learn to hide our inner feelings to some degree while in public. People usually display their astrological traits in relationships and tense interactions. Refer to the element for the nature of the reaction that they will use (for example, Aries' first reaction when faced with conflict is to yell or threaten, Gemini will talk his/her way out of it, Cancer usually responds with an emotional outburst, Taurus responds to conflict with silence and a posture of strength, etc.):
    • Cardinal (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn): Usually responds to conflict with a bold, decisive, instinctive action in an attempt to trump the assault. Easily motivated to start tasks.
    • Fixed (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius): Tends to hold in their reaction and respond that the attempt to hurt them was futile, with passive aggressive behavior or with silence. Concentrates on finishing things well.
    • Mutable (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces): Tends to be artful with conflicts, coming up with the perfect thing to say to egg the other person on or make them realize that conflict is pointless. Good at motivating people.
  5. 6
    Pay attention to the age of the person's sign, Aries being the youngest and Scorpio being the oldest also known as the oldest souls: The younger signs tend to display quick tempers and be more selfish and eager to learn while the older signs are wiser, more compassionate and more set in their ways.

    Ask the person's birthday and use Google.

Excellent post by SagiCap! Great for analysis. But there is one additional point in addressing Taurean's original question, that about feeling the other person's (or animal for that matter) "energy": the energy you pick up on (that is, the cosmic related,ie, astrologically affinitive, energy) shows the sign (or planet) THAT HAS "TAKEN" (been interwoven with) THAT INDIVIDUAL'S FIELD OF DYNAMIC LIFE. All planets and all signs are "in" everyone's field of life-however, not all have "taken" (become major elements) in that field. Often analysis (birth data) will reveal what has "taken", sometimes their appearance will show this, but OFTEN the sign (or even the planet) that has "taken" most intimately will have nothing to do with the ascendant or MC or chart ruler, etc. I have found this statement to be valid over and over again in "real life", and it is one of the "secrets" I learned from the Jaimini jyotish adepts of Ponmudi forest in Kerala, India: what really affects the life of an individual is the cosmic force that has "taken", and often this force (sign, planet) is not what we think it is (based on the usual astrological data)...

(Note: this is yet another of my unpopular radicalist ideas about astrology, but it has proven valid to me, at least, time and again, so that I have come to consider it to be "true"...)

The easiest sign for me to recognize is Sagittarius, for the Sun sign, that is. There is a certain type of Sagittarius that shows itself louder than any other Sun sign, and often I find myself unable to see anything but Sagittarius in these people, so it's hard to guess what Ascendants they might be. My brother has called some of them negative Sagittarius stereotypes, lol! I'll list the ones I can remember...

Sarah Silverman* (Sun)

Bill Nye* (Sun)

Rod Blagojevich* (Sun)

Andy Dick (Sun/Moon)

Jon Stewart* (Sun/Moon)

Ellen DeGeneres (Asc)

Joe Biden (Asc)

*These are people that either my brother or myself accurately guessed were Sagittarian Sun signs. I got Blagojevich wrong, the rest we didn't guess.

Note: The Sagittarian impression I got from Andy Dick was largely based on his character on the sitcom NewsRadio, rather than his actual life. Many of the characters on the show were archetypes of the respective actors' signs, in my opinion.
