Have you often wondered about the nature of the 12 zodiacal symbols as they appear today?
Imagine them as pictographs, perhaps premonitions, of events, archetypal phenomena, or ubiquitous experiences possibly representing the deepest primordial impressions of the universe upon the human psyche.
The four elements correspond as follows:
Earth - physical world, resources, material things
Air - mind, ideas, communication
Fire - will, spirit, energy
Water - feelings, emotions, compassion
The quadruplicities (so named because the zodiac is divided into four quadrants, 3 x 4 = 12):
Cardinal - start, initiate, lead
Fixed - maintain, stabilize, continue
Mutable - adapt, stop, end
...perhaps a story, or a prophecy, in symbol...
