One of the many things we can discover with astrology is our animalistic, instinctive side, curled up inside our human body, waiting to be let out. If we tamed our wild animal for too long, this could lead to a number of problems with anger management, emotional numbness and our health. Your primal nature could lead you to a better understanding of yourself, through a simple interpretation of your natal chart.
No matter the Sun sign, if the Ascendant or its ruler fall into one of the three Fire signs of the zodiac (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius), your power animal could be a Fire animal. When someone’s Ascendant ruler is in conjunction with Mars, Sun or Jupiter, their power animal could also be a Fire animal. It may seem kind of difficult to determine which one of these animals will best describe your instinctive Self, but if your attention gets stolen by one of them, this shows your inner need that should be fulfilled.
Each of the Fire signs has its own nature and quality, so it is not the same if you find a link with Aries, Leo or Sagittarius.
If you are born with an Ascendant in Aries, you are represented by Mars and your power animal could be Buffalo. This could also be your power animal if your ascendant ruler is in Aries or in conjunction with Mars. Buffalo is grounded and strong, giving you the energy from the Earth’s core to chase your goals, step by step. It manifests in a strong connection to nature and the world of animals.
You are the one to act and persist to reach your mission, without letting emotions interfere with your goals. In the history of Native Americans every part of Buffalo was used as food, clothing, tools or weapons. This is exactly what you need to do – use every single resource that life has given you in order to reach what you are going for.
If you have an Ascendant or its ruler in Leo, you are represented by the Sun and your power animal could be the lion. Lion can be your power animal also if your ascendant ruler is in a close conjunction with the Sun. Imagine how this affects you. The lion, as the king of the jungle, lies around and sleeps for twenty hours a day, only to wait to be served by his lioness.
Brave and powerful, your mission is to inspire others by your passion. You are to show what is possible and where true life force lies. Lion is a manager, someone who has a leading role, fearless and loud. You are to learn and show others that nothing is impossible if you follow your uniqueness.
If your rising sign or its ruler is in Sagittarius, you are ruled by Jupiter and your power animal might be the Eagle. Eagle can also be your power animal if your ascendant ruler is in a conjunction with Jupiter. Flying high, with the sharp eyesight, this is an animal that never misses a single movement on the ground.
This animal gives you wings, perspective and vision. Your mission is to learn and follow your visions, recognize the paths that are to be followed and focus others on their way to higher knowledge. Teach others about what you have learned on your personal journeys and widen the horizons of everyone around you.
