INTERCEPTIONS IN THE SIGNS
The best way to think about interceptions is considering the sister sign pairs and what they represent, with their unique characteristics. Being aware of each sign’s distinct lessons and qualities will help you understand what the effects of an interception will have – when those lessons and qualities are absent from your life.
Aries//Libra – Aries is the sign of assertion, the sign of taking and independence while Libra is the sign of equality, fairness, and teamwork. With Aries intercepted, it will be hard for you assert yourself and to be independent. Action is difficult for you. Perhaps it’s difficult to find your identity, and you might struggle knowing who you are. When you do try to do things, it just happens wrongly and awkwardly. You don’t have a sense of who you are. And since you don’t know who you are and what you have and lack, the effects of a Libra interception will come into play. If you don’t know who you are, how will you work well with others? How will you work well with others, when you struggle to work well with yourself? With a Libra interception, you will struggle to equalize giving and taking – either taking too much or taking too little. You lack the balance Libra represents. You will struggle working and compromising with the people you face in your life, and relationships were out of the picture at this point, due to the fact that you don’t work well with others.
Taurus//Scorpio – Taurus is the sign of love, beauty, security, and stability, the sign of standing your ground when times get tough while Scorpio is the sign of transformations, and taboos, the sign of looking into the dark insides of your soul, embracing everything within. With Taurus intercepted, it’s hard for you to feel secure. This insecurity can manifest in a lack of material comforts like food and sleep or perhaps a lack of self-esteem. You may feel unloved or ugly, or you never got the love and confidence that you needed from others. Due to this, you could find yourself hoarding or spending impulsively, trying to fill the void you’re uncomfortably familiar with. Since there’s an excessive action of filling, and a lack of emptying, the effects of a Scorpio interception will come in. Due to the excessive fills and gains of your life, you will be devastated the moment you face a loss. You will be so involved in your security, you will never get out of your comfort zone to embrace solitude, and the dark sides of you that you try to push away due to a lack of self-esteem.
Gemini//Sagittarius – Gemini is the sign of the mind and intellect, the sign of learning while Sagittarius is the sign of learning and traveling, the sign of teaching. When Gemini is intercepted, your mind is perhaps choked and bound by the people around you. Curiosity killed the cat, and the cat in this case is certainly you. The answers to your questions were never answered, and your thoughts were usually suppressed or not taken seriously. With having thoughts concealed, the effects of an intercepted Sagittarius will follow. When you have Sagittarius intercepted, the ability to explore is taken away from you. Since you’ve never been able to express your thoughts, you never got to learn from your mistakes. It’s hard for you to open your mind and take risks and chances, since your mind was never appreciated in the first place. And when you go into the world with such a mind, you can struggle seeing other perspectives and views because you never got to express yours. It’s hard for you be optimistic during hard times.
Cancer//Capricorn – Cancer is the sign of the home and emotions, the sign of nurturing while Capricorn is the sign of the world and ambitions, the sign of responsibility. When Cancer is intercepted, it can difficult for you to express your emotions in a smooth, effective manner. Many times, your emotions can come out in explosions – problematic outbursts. “Home” is an elusive item you’ve never really had. You might’ve not considered the place you lived at as home. There was a lack of comfort and safety that you deeply wanted. Constantly lacking nurturing and care will cause the effects of a Capricorn interception. With Capricorn intercepted, it can be hard for you to chase your dreams and to be responsible. Since nobody comforted you or showed they believed in you, you feel powerless to the world. The world feels cold like the world you were raised in and you will struggle to make a mark in the world. Since you never felt accepted at your “home,” you really don’t know where you belong. There are so many things you want to do, but you feel like you aren’t capable.
Leo//Aquarius – Leo is the sign of creativity and excitement. It is the the sign of shining under the spotlight, and showing your talents to the world. Aquarius is the sign of humanity and innovation. It is the sign of doing the quirky, showing your progress in humanity to the world. When you have Leo intercepted, you can find yourself never being praised for your talents. You could feel like you didn’t have a right to show yourself off, and perhaps you felt like you had nothing to show off after awhile. And with constant discouragement, your creativity runs low. After all, why be creative with your ideas when it’s going to be crushed? Being stuck in a creative block and wanting to hide from the spotlight will transition over to the effects of an Aquarius interception. With an Aquarius interception, you will struggle to show the weird, quirky side of yourself since you didn’t get praised for showing the best sides of yourself. If anything, you want to be “normal” so you don’t get called out. However, everybody has their quirks, and yours can come out quite unexpectedly.
Virgo//Pisces – Virgo is the sign of order and routine. It is the sign of your daily reality and work. Pisces is the sign of your dreams and spirituality. It is the sign of fantasies. When you have Virgo intercepted, order goes out the door. The only routine that works well for you is your own, even if it ends up not being conventional for the long run. Perhaps people tell you that your way isn’t the right way, or perhaps you do that to others. There is however an aura of criticism and harsh judgment regardless. Being broken in routine and criticized will transition to the effects of a Pisces interception. When Pisces is intercepted, you will struggle to see reality and fantasy. You will struggle to see what’s real. You might find yourself with impractical dreams with impractical plans due to your Virgo interception. After all, if you struggle to make order in your reality, how will you make order in your dreams? A Pisces interception will also bring a disorganization and confusion to you. You can easily be deceived by others or yourself.
