The 12 Archetypes


Everyone has all 12 archetypes of the natural zodiac in our charts.  We are so much more than just our Sun signs!  But each of us will have some dominant players.  Read each archetype for yourself and I bet you’ll recognize you and your child’s major influencers without even looking at their chart!  I encourage you to dive in and investigate the patterns that make you both tick.  If you’d like to see these archetypes at work in your chart, book a session and I promise, you’ll understand so much more about the operating system that’s driving you!


Aries, Taurus, and Gemini are the archetypes in our development in which we are born into the world and begin to explore, the resources and values we determine we need to survive, and the labels and meaning we assign everything so we can communicate with others.

Cancer, Leo, and Virgo archetypes are the formation of our self-identity, self-expression, and self-analysis.  This is where your child becomes their own unique human being who expresses their knowledge, desires, and talents.  We become emotionally aware and also aware of our shortcomings. We feel, we love, and we want to be noticed. And if we are not validated we begin to self-improve.

Libra, Scorpio, and Sagittarius are the archetypes of relationship to others, to our deeper psychological self, and to the cosmos.  Here we begin to see ourselves are a part of a much larger whole.  We learn to give and take and maintain relationships to people, work, and our environment.  We begin to look deeper into the workings of our mind.  And this opens us up to the greater workings of the universe.

Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces are about our place in this experience as a whole. Capricorn is our responsibility and role in the structure of life.  Aquarius is how our uniqueness contributes to the whole. And Pisces is finding the ultimate meaning of it all.
