Heya heya -

I was just re-visiting Steven Forrest's _The Inner Sky_, and I glimpsed a Table of Archetypes that he claims is useful in getting a feel for the "self triad" (I think that's what he calls it): You (Your Sun), Your Soul (Your Moon), and the Mask that you present to the world (Your Ascendant).

Soooo, here's the table (more or less):

ARIES -The Warrior ~~ The Pioneer ~~ The Daredevil ~~ The Survivor

TAURUS - The Earth Spirit ~~ The Musician ~~ The Silent One

GEMINI - The Witness ~~ The Teacher ~~ The Storyteller ~~ The Journalist

CANCER - The Mother ~~ The Healer ~~ The Invisible Man/Woman

LEO - The King/Queen ~~ The Performer ~~ The Clown ~~ The Child

VIRGO - The Servant ~~ The Martyr ~~ The Perfectionist ~~ The Analyst

LIBRA - The Lover ~~ The Artist ~~ The Peacemaker

SCORPIO - The Detective ~~ The Sorcerer ~~ The Hypnotist

SAGITTARIUS - The Gypsy ~~ The Student ~~ The Philosopher

CAPRICORN - The Hermit ~~ The Father ~~ The Prime Minister

AQUARIUS - The Genius ~~ The Revolutionary ~~ The Truth Sayer ~~ The Exile ~~ The Scientist

PISCES - The Mystic ~~ The Dreamer ~~ The Poet ~~ The Face Dancer (I have no idea what that one means - anyone?)

So, following his instructions I, for instance, might say that I am
the Dreamer with the Soul of the Exile and the Mask of the Detective
or
the Mystic with the Soul of the Revolutionary and the the mask of the Detective.

What would you say for yourself?
How about for others that post on this site who's astrological combinations you know?

Oh wow! This is great!

Let's see..

Foremost I think ..

I am the Gypsy with the Soul of the Sorcerer and the Mask of the Performer

or

I am the Student with the Soul of the Detective and the Mask of the Child

or perhaps..

I am the Philosopher with the Soul of the Sorcerer and the Mask of the Queen.

That is FUN and enlightening to boot!

The Face Dancer? Hmmm.. strange.
Could it perhaps be a reference to the mutablility of Pisces? Like how they have many different faces and dance between them all? I dunno.. that's tough.

Thanks for sharing, proxie.

instead of recording the rotation of a 3D object by degrees you count it by number of rotations in radians or something like that...ugh..i hate maths.

either way, its a core component of controlling wrist rotations in a character rig...apparently, lol

Groovy tuve.

Another question:
Why do British people pluralize everything?
(Ex. "Maths", "Our team are doing well")

Good luck, though.
I'ma off to my Culture Change in Modern Russia class - there's my bain: trying to understand my prof through her thick accent.

I would be th mystic with the soul of the exile and the mask of the sorcerer...though I chose the last one I don't see how it fits with the rest probably the same way my 'mask' doesn't show who I am? CHose it for not of this world aura. That would be pisces sun, aquarius moon and scorpio ascendant.

Anyone agree?? Or not...

Well if my sun is Aquarius, my moon is Taurus and my asc is virgo? I can't tell by the chart because it's got 4 columns in some signs and 3 in the other. And yes I feel really stupid asking how to read the chart

LOL!!! Proxi and N_wEvil, you two are too darn cute!!!

I'm a Queen with the soul of a Lover and the mask of a Genius. Cool ha?
(Wait a minute, MASK of a genius???... I'm going to try again.....)
A Clown with the soul of an Artist and the mask of a Truthsayer......hmm, this mask thing is not going well for me....

Hoy, hoy hoy - mess up, mess up!

I'm a Queen with the SOUL of a genius and the MASK of an artist.
Or a clown with the SOUL of a truthsayer and the MASK of a peacemaker.
Now that makes more sense...

Fajita,
I think you'd be the Genius (or the Truth Sayer) with the soul of the Earth Spirit and the mask of the Servant. Just my humble opinion judging by your posts

Whee!!!!

Lesee... I'm...

the Analyst with the Soul of the Student wearing a Mask of the Storyteller.

Is it just me, or does this sound eerily like tarot?

Oh, don't worry about it fajita. I'm quite a bit confused with the 4 columns but only 3 signs of concern (sun, moon and asc) as well. My guess is you can pick out anything which really seems like you.

I can't decide. I don't think any of the Aqua things fit me.

Any takers? Aqua Sun, Leo Moon, Gemini Rising...

I don't know... I mean this is going to sound really silly... I don't know what "exactly" they mean by the scorpio.. sorcerer and hypnotist description?!

If I can get an idea... It will make it easier.

Proxi

I had this book years ago and made the mistake of lending it out so I never saw it again. I'll have to check if Amazon carries it because I liked it a lot.

I would be...

The Storyteller with the soul of a Sourcerer and the mask of a Mystic
OR
The Witness with the soul of a Hypnotist and the mask of a Dreamer
OR EVEN
The Teacher with the soul of a Detective and the mask of a Poet

...All of them describes me depending on my state of mind and life circumstances. Fascinating book!

Interesting prox...

I guess:
I'm the King, Soul of a Dreamer, mask of the Silent One

Which actually turns out to be pretty accurate... I'm VERY silent in a new environment or surrounded by people I don't know... then after a long while I become comfortable & wham! There's that fire!

The Philosopher with the soul of a Warrior and the mask of the Analyst.

Nice thread Proxie. Alrighty, I am the earth spirit with the soul of a warrior and the mask of a child.

Lost Leo, the silent one? Um, seeing you in action on the other forum it doesn't seem to suit you LOL. That's why I didn't choose it.

Oxy, how 'bout we say you are the truth sayer with the soul of the performer and the mask of a teacher.
