Astrology 101: Sun Signs | Stargazing | Episode 5


Narrator:
FROM SUN SIGNS TO RETROGRADES, WE TAKE YOU INTO THE WORLD OF
ASTROLOGY AND SHED LIGHT ON WHAT THE STARS
HAVE IN STORE FOR YOU. THIS IS “STARGAZING.” ♪♪ SOMETIMES ASTROLOGY CAN SEEM
REALLY DAUNTING, AND, YES, BIRTH CHARTS CAN LOOK LIKE SUPER COMPLICATED
TRIGONOMETRY PROBLEMS. BUT ONCE YOU START LEARNING
ABOUT IT, I THINK YOU’LL FIND THAT IT’S
NOT THAT SCARY AT ALL. FROM SUN SIGNS TO BIRTH CHARTS
TO HISTORY, WE’RE LEAVING NO STONE UNTURNED. SO THROW OUT
THAT BEAUTY MAGAZINE BECAUSE WE’RE DOING
A SERIOUS DEEP DIVE. Narrator: IF THERE’S ONE THING
TO GET YOU STARTED IN THE WILD WORLD OF ASTROLOGY, IT’S FIGURING OUT YOUR SUN SIGN. WESTERN ASTROLOGY
HAS 12 ZODIAC SIGNS REPRESENTED IN CONSTELLATIONS. YOUR SUN SIGN
IS THE CONSTELLATION THAT WAS DIRECTLY IN LINE WITH
THE SUN THE DAY YOU WERE BORN. BECAUSE OF THIS, IT HAS A MAJOR
INFLUENCE ON YOUR PERSONALITY AND WHAT YOU PUT OUT
INTO THE WORLD. THE LESSER TALKED ABOUT MOON
AND RISING SIGNS GOVERN OTHER PARTS
OF YOUR PERSON, BUT WE’LL GET INTO THAT LATER. ♪♪ HEY, GUYS, I’M COLIN BEDELL. I’M AN ASTROLOGER AND AN AUTHOR, AND I’M HERE GIVING READINGS
ON THE STREET. THANK YOU, THANK YOU,
THANK YOU. I’M HERE WITH JOY.
I GOT KIM HERE. FIRST TIME PERSON VISITING
IN NEW YORK TODAY. WHAT TIME WERE YOU BORN? 10:30 A.M. GOT IT. IS THERE
MAYBE SOMETHING PARTICULAR THAT YOU WOULD LIKE
ASTROLOGICAL COUNSELING OR CLARITY ON? HOW THINGS ARE GOING
WITH WORK-WISE… -WORK-WISE? OKAY.
-THINGS LIKE THAT. HOW CAN IT HELP ME? DO YOU HAVE ANY RESOLUTIONS
OR KIND OF PROJECTS COMING UP IN 2019? JUST CONSISTENCY,
KEEPING MOTIVATED. SO YOU HAVE
THE PLANET JUPITER, WHICH RULES SUCCESS, EXPANSION,
ABUNDANCE, AND OPTIMISM, ENTERING YOUR SECTOR
OF IDENTITY, OKAY? SO THIS HAPPENS
ONCE EVERY 11 1/2 YEARS. 2019 IS POSITIONED TO BE EASILY, LIKE, THE NEWEST
NEW YEAR YOU’VE EVER HAD. OKAY. SO WHAT YOU’RE
GONNA WANT TO DO IS PROACTIVELY
REMIND YOURSELF, “HEY, THINGS
ARE GONNA GO WELL. THIS IS GONNA BE
WONDERFUL. AND MY OPTIMISM WILL
DIRECT MY EXCITEMENT.” OKAY. THERE IS SOMETHING IN ASTROLOGY
CALLED THE NORTH NODE. AND ESSENTIALLY
ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW IS THAT THE NORTH STAR
OF ASTROLOGY, JOY, IS POINTING AT CANCER. -OH, YES.
-YES! 2019, YOU WANT TO EMBODY
THE BEST OF THE QUALITIES THAT COME NATURALLY
TO YOU. ALL RIGHT. SO WHAT COMES NATURALLY
TO A CANCER? SENSITIVITY, COMPASSION, CREATIVITY,
EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE, PROTECTING HOME
AND FAMILY, HONORING THE WOMEN
IN OUR LIVES, AND BUILDING FAMILY
WHEREVER WE GO. SO IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE
YOUR LIFE RUN WELL, YOU JUST WANT TO LET
THOSE QUALITIES SHINE IN THE BIGGEST WAY. YOU WERE BORN DURING
A MERCURY RETROGRADE, WHICH IS VERY COOL BECAUSE THE PLANET
OF CONSCIOUSNESS COMMUNICATION AND THE WAY THAT
YOU CONNECT IDEAS, IT’S OUR THINKING,
IT’S OUR COGNITION, IT’S HOW WE MOVE
ABOUT THE WORLD, THAT’S MERCURY.
-OKAY. WAS RETROGRADE, SO THE WAY
THAT YOU DO THOSE THINGS ARE JUST
A LITTLE DIFFERENT. SO THEREFORE, YOU’RE NOT ALWAYS
GIVEN THE ENCOURAGEMENT AND THE EMPOWERMENT IN TERMS OF YOUR
INTELLECTUAL CAPACITY, IN TERMS OF YOUR
VERBAL ELOQUENCE, IN TERMS OF YOUR ANALYTICAL
SKILLS, BUT GUESS WHAT? YOU CAN DO IT, RIGHT?
-YEAH. SO I JUST WANT YOU TO GIVE
YOURSELF, LIKE, “YOU KNOW WHAT? I’M NOT GONNA
LISTEN TO THE CONDITIONING AND THE PROGRAMMING
OF THE PAST BECAUSE THEY HAVE A NARROW
DEFINITION OF THOSE THINGS. AND I DON’T HAVE TO FIT INTO
THOSE QUALIFICATIONS BECAUSE I KNOW
I CAN DO IT.” I BELIEVE THAT THE UNIVERSE
HAS NO CHOICE BUT TO PROVE IT
TO ME. BECAUSE I’M A TAURUS, AND THE MINUTE MY MIND
IS MADE UP, IT’S GAME OVER.
-YES. -RIGHT?
-YES. SO THERE YOU GO.
SO NICE TO MEET YOU. -AWESOME.
-YAY. WHAT A PLEASURE. WHEN PEOPLE THINK OF ASTROLOGY,
THEY THINK OF THEIR SUN SIGN. AND WHEN WE READ HOROSCOPES, WE’RE READING SUN-SIGN
HOROSCOPES. BUT THERE ARE MANY PLANETS,
NOT JUST THE SUN. THE SUN IS THE BRIGHTEST STAR
IN THE SKY. AND WHERE WE HAVE THE SUN
IN THE CHART IS HOW WE WANT TO BE SEEN. IT’S HOW WE WANT TO BE
RECOGNIZED BY OTHERS. THE MOON IN ASTROLOGY
IS YOUR FEELINGS — HOW YOU WANT TO BE TAKEN CARE OF
AND HOW YOU WANT TO BE TREATED. IT’S YOUR EMOTIONAL NATURE. MERCURY IS YOUR MIND. MERCURY GOVERNS YOUR ATTITUDES,
YOUR BELIEFS, YOUR COMMUNICATION STYLE AND
YOUR COMMUNICATION SKILLS. VENUS, IN ASTROLOGY, IS RELATED
TO LOVE, IT’S RELATED TO LIKE. WHERE WE HAVE VENUS IN THE CHART IS WHERE OUR AESTHETIC AND
CREATIVE NATURE COMES OUT, BUT IT’S ALSO RELATED
TO OUR PERSONAL FINANCES AND IT’S RELATED TO OUR PERSONAL
VALUE SYSTEM. MARS IN THE BIRTH CHART
IS YOUR EGO. MARS LIKES TO FIGHT
AND GET THINGS DONE. ITS ENERGIES NEED TO BE
EXPRESSED THROUGH THE BODY. JUPITER IN ASTROLOGY IS RELATED
TO GROWTH. JUPITER IS AN EXPANSIVE PLANET. AND WHERE WE HAVE JUPITER
IN THE CHART IS WHERE WE’RE LIKELY TO WANT TO
TAKE CHANCES. SATURN, IN ASTROLOGY, IS WHERE
WE FIND MORE OF OUR FEARS. SATURN GOVERNS DEPRESSION
AND RESPONSIBILITY. WHERE YOU HAVE SATURN
IN YOUR BIRTH CHART, YOU’RE LIKELY TO HAVE
MAJOR LIFE LESSONS. URANUS IS A REALLY
SLOW-MOVING PLANET, AND URANUS IS RELATED
TO AUTONOMY. THIS PLANET IS NOT CONCERNED WITH GETTING ALONG WELL
WITH OTHERS. IT’S THE PART OF YOUR NATURE THAT IS CONCERNED
WITH GROWING YOURSELF. NEPTUNE IS A PLANET
THAT GOVERNS ANXIETY. WHERE WE FIND NEPTUNE
IN THE BIRTH CHART IS WHERE WE’RE INCLINED
TO BE EMPATHETIC, BUT ALSO WHERE WE’RE INCLINED TO NEED TO HAVE
HEALTHIER BOUNDARIES AND TAKE CARE OF OURSELVES IN
REALLY KIND AND PATIENT WAYS. PLUTO IS A PLANET
THAT GOVERNS TRAUMA. NOW, EVERYBODY HAS PLUTO
IN THEIR BIRTH CHART. EVERYBODY HAS ALL OF THESE
PLANETS IN THEIR BIRTH CHART. AND IT DOESN’T MEAN THAT
EVERYBODY COMES FROM TRAUMA. WHERE WE FIND PLUTO IN THE CHART
REALLY DESCRIBES NOT ONLY THE DIFFICULT EXPERIENCES
YOU’VE HAD, IT ALSO DESCRIBES
YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS. IT DESCRIBES YOUR EARLY
DEVELOPMENTAL CONDITIONS AND HOW THEY’VE IMPACTED YOU. WHERE YOU HAVE PLUTO
IN THE CHART, YOU’RE MOST LIKELY
TO BE INTENSE, A LITTLE BIT COMPULSIVE
OR OBSESSIVE, AND YOUR CAPACITY FOR MAKING
BIG-PICTURE CHANGE AND HAVING REAL SUCCESS IS
SIGNIFIED BY PLUTO. SO THE NEXT TIME YOU
LOOK AT YOUR HOROSCOPE AND YOU’RE LIKE, “MM, THAT
DOESN’T REALLY MATCH ME,” NOW YOU KNOW THAT THERE’S LOTS
OF OTHER PLANETS IN YOUR CHART AND DO A LITTLE RESEARCH. MAYBE YOU’LL FIND OUT THAT YOU
HAVE SOME ASPECTS THAT INFLUENCE THINGS AND MAKE
A LOT MORE SENSE TO YOU. Narrator:
SO THERE’S THIS BIG SECRET WHEN IT COMES TO THE 12 SIGNS
OF THE ZODIAC. DID YOU KNOW THAT THERE’S
ACTUALLY A 13th NUMBER? OPHIUCHUS WAS A FELLOW
CONSTELLATION, OR THE LOST SIGN,
THAT WAS DROPPED IN FAVOR OF THE MORE TIDY 12
SIGNS WHICH CORRESPONDED TO THE BABYLONIAN CALENDAR. OPHIUCHUS WAS ALL ABOUT BEING
SPIRITED, CLEVER, AND AT TIMES, TEMPERAMENTAL. SO KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE STARS. THE 13th SIGN MAY BE
ON ITS WAY BACK. Woods: HAVE A QUESTION
ABOUT YOUR BIRTH CHART? LEAVE A QUESTION IN THE COMMENTS
WITH YOUR SIGN AND AN ASTROLOGY EXPERT MAY
ANSWER IT ON “STARGAZING.” BRING THE POWER OF YOUR SIGN
INTO YOUR LOOK. ♪♪ ♪♪ ♪♪ PRETTY COOL, HUH? NOW YOU’RE AN EXPERT ON ALL
THINGS ASTROLOGY. WELL, MAYBE NOT AN EXPERT, BUT IT SURE BEATS GETTING
YOUR INFO FROM A MAGAZINE. KEEP IN MIND THERE’S STILL A LOT
TO LEARN — NOT ONLY ABOUT THE STARS ABOVE
BUT ABOUT YOURSELF. AND WE’LL BE HERE WITH YOU
EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.
