Astrology and photography

posted on 1st of january, 2008

Astrology is very complex – it works with Sun, Moon, planets, astrological houses, astrological aspects etc. But many people know just the “popular” astrology. If a person says: “I´m a Pisces”, it means that when he/she was born, the sun (who represents our soul in horoscope) was transiting the sign of Pisces. We can´t be all the same Pisces, Aries, Cancers because the position of all other astrological points change in a very complex way. However, people like to read about their sun sign. In the following lines, you´ll read what a kind of photographer you are according your sun sign. But remember, if you disagree, don´t blame astrology, it means that there are other stronger aspects in your horoscope.

Astrological signs of Fire element – Aries, Lion, Sagittarius
Key words: action, movements, enthusiasm, experiments
It is hard to see a typical Aries, Lion and Sagittarius waiting with patient three hours for a squirrel to appear into the camera viewfinder. These photographers love action and so they can be very skillful for photographing sport, animals in action (especially dangerous animals!) and people in movement. Fire signs are famous for their enthusiasm – it is valuable also for photography. Their enthusiasm will be seen in the beginning of a new projects or during experimenting new styles of photographing.

Astrological signs of Water element – Cancer, Scorpion, Pisces
Key words: creativity, artistic talents, feelings, emotions, fantasy
Do you need an object over white background? That would be no problem for these photographers, but they consider it very boring. Cancers, Scorpions and Pisces are the most artistic signs. They put feelings, mood and emotions in every image. That´s why they love to be free in creation. In this way they are able to make incredible images. Their popular topics can be mysticism, portraits, water, fantastic landscapes, still-life, colors, beauty of nature.

Astrological signs of Earth element – Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Key words: nature, patience, landscape, food
People of Earth signs are lovers of nature and food. No surprise that they love to photograph landscape, animals in the wild, flowers, food and drinks. These people are patient and admire very much “perfection”. They care about every detail on photos. Typical Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn like “traditional” point of view, that´s why it is hard to see images from these photographers with strange angles or too experimental.

Astrological signs of Air element – Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Key words: technology, fashion, group of people, communication
People of Air signs usually know a lot of people, if you need images with groups of persons, this is the right assignment for them. They will enjoy working on it as well as their models. Gemini and Libra will also make very nice photos of fashion, wellness and beauty. While a typical Aquarius has a pleasure to make images with the topic of “future” – computers, Internet, science, communications.

do not dare advise people on their capabiliites as a photographer

you cannot base it on astrology because you do not demonstrate anhy knowledge or skill in astrology --maybe grammar, but not astrology or photography....any sign can be great. i know because i am a virgo photographer. i know a piscean who sucks with lights, which is the basic method of photography "to describe with light"..you're a fraud. get some morals.

i perceived you as a water sign simply because it was the most loving words written about a mode............and then i read your coments..are you a pisces? please, being a pisces (i believe in astrology) but pisces seem to fall below their touted strength of "karma's ultimate release" i mean, can you find a better revelation for other signs than what you've read before:? i'm a virgo, and even though i am prone to believing the worst about myself, i saw through your page. you only have care about yourself. the only modality on this page with any inspriation is WATER *your mode*
you are not perceptive about air, earth or fire.....you read a book. my sun, moon, venus are in 12th house btw...........so...i KNOW....you suck, superior complex fuck you for bringing a stupid page into existence.....be kind to others. .... a pisces should share rather than act "better than"
