We are all born under a sign. A Sun sign that is. And that astrological sign indicates something important about our character traits, and how we carry ourselves out in the world and through our lives.
You sun sign says a lot about you and your personal style. But did you know that your Sun sign also says something important about your mediumship style?
No one sign or another is better or more suited to be psychic than another. Each has its particular strengths and different ways in which it works best in the realm of mediumship.
Knowing how your's works, where your strengths and weaknesses lie, can help you tremendously in understanding yourself as a medium and using your Sun sign gifts to the best of your abilities.
I am married to a professional astrologer and we 'speak' astrology all the time 'round our house. I have come to know a thing or two thorough my 24 years living with my astrologer husband.
When I was training as a medium we became very interested in the astrology of psychic mediumship - what makes one psychic, whether there were certain signatures for people who are guided to develop their skills, etc. Interviewing and studying the charts of psychics and mediums we came up with some interesting observations.
Though there are many facets to a birth chart and other placements to consider, here I will be sharing the traits of your Sun sign and how it applies to your mediumship. I will also point out the strengths and the potential challenges of each Sun sign in mediumship.
What does your sun sign say about your mediumship style?
Here we go:
The Aries Medium:
Aries people tend to move very quickly. I have several friends with their sun in Aries and I (a slow plodding Taurus) have a very hard time keeping up with them!
The good news for Aries mediums is that they do very well when the information from spirit comes in fast and furious and have no trouble keeping up, especially the more advanced they become at spirit communication. In fact they want ALL the information to come in fast and furious and if it doesn't an Aries medium might move on too quickly without giving the current communicating spirit a chance to get all of their message out.
That's right. Impatience and a tendency to move on fast can be a biggy for the Aries medium, making her ability to hold her focus with the spirit world potentially one of her biggest challenges.
All of this can, however, be overcome with lots of practice and by bringing more sustained focus to her mediumship experiences. Meditation is a great daily practice for the Aries medium.
Aries mediums tend to receive information via their Clairsentience first then develop their other clairs as they grow in their mediumship.
It is a really good idea for newbie Aries mediums to pay particular attention to how they are feeling in their bodies and emotions as their way into their psychic experiences, which will initially come with sensations and feelings that might feel strange to them at first, but are really spirit's way of working with their natural, innate gift of clarisentience.
Aries round up:
Strength - Ability to receive information very quickly
Challenges - Impatience, desire to move on too fast
Natural clair - Clairsentience
The Taurus Medium:
Contrary to Aries folks, Tauruses tend to move more slowly.
I happen to think this is an absolutely positively awesome trait! (I'm a Taurus ;). And in mediumship it sure can be.
Spirit communication requires an ability to hold a sustained focus on the spirit world and Taurus mediums have got this ability in spades.
The challenge for the Taurus medium is when the information comes in too quickly for her that she might miss it.
The good news is that Taurus mediums can easily overcome this with lots of practice.
Taurus mediums tend to have a natural gift for claircognizance followed quite closely by clairsentience.
The secret to a Taurus medium's development success is to learn to use these two clairs together to receive information from the spirit world. Tauruses being somewhat(!) stubborn, however, tend to easily shrug off the information receive via their claircognizance, even though it is their greatest strength.
Training herself to see her claircognizance as valid and to trust it is one of the greatest gifts a Taurus medium can give herself.
Taurus round up:
Strength - Ability to hold a sustained focus on the spirit world
Challenge - Tendency to miss or discount information that comes in too quickly or through claircognizance
Natural clair - Claircognizance, clairsentience
The Gemini Medium:
The 'talkers' of the zodiac make great mediums (all the signs in their own way do, of course!) because they have a natural gift for communication and a keen ability to parlay the messages from the spirit world into words.
They work extremely well with very talkative spirits, too, who tend to seek them out to deliver their messages.
Gemini mediums can have a tendency to talk a little too fast as those spirit messages come barreling in. So practicing taking her time in her message delivery is a good idea.
Also the quickness of her mind functioning, can pose a challenge to her mediumship. When spirit communication slows down a bit (and that does happen...) she has a tendency to lose her focus and using that mind of hers to start thinking about what should happen next rather than staying open to the signs from spirit.
Daily meditation and time spent in complete silence is a particularly good practice for the Gemini medium. It gives her practice taming that 'monkey' mind which she can then take into her mediumship to improve her overall focus on the spirit world.
As a Gemini medium your natural clair is claircognizance followed closely by clairaudience.
Gemini round up:
Strength - Ability to skillfully communicate messages from spirit into spoken words
Challenge - Overactive mind functioning can get in the way of the flow from spirit
Natural clair - Claircognizance, clairaudience
The Cancer Medium:
Those born under the sun sign of Cancer know all about what it is to be a natural empath.
You've been feeling the feelings of others around you for most of your life. This gives you the natural ability to both feel the presence of spirit and to receive their messages in the form of feelings and sensations through your highly developed clairsentience. And because you keenly feel what spirit is sending you, you are particularly gifted at being able to convey those feelings to others through your mediumship.
You are also a natural conduit for the healing that mediumship brings.
But, alas, Cancer can feel too much, which can make mediumship a strain on her systems if she doesn't learn and practice proper opening and closing techniques for spirit communication.
Plus the spirits are often drawn to her strong nurturing side and will sometimes play on this to get the Cancer medium to open up to their communication, randomly, when THEY want to communicate, and not when the Cancer medium necessarily wants to do so.
This makes the maintaining of clear and firm boundaries with the spirit world essential for the Cancer medium.
Children in spirit have a natural fondness for communicating through the Cancer medium and will often seek them out to deliver their messages to their parents and loved ones in the living.
Cancer round up:
Strength - Natural empaths, healing capacity is strong
Challenges - Sometimes feels too much and lacks necessary boundaries with spirit world
Natural clair - Clairsentience
The Leo Medium:
Your Leo big heart and warm spirit give you the potential for greatness as a psychic medium.
Few signs in the zodiac inspire the way a Leo does and getting at the crux of an inspirational message from the spirit world through her naturally strong clairvoyance and clairsentience is a Leo's forte'.
Once a Leo recognizes and acknowledges her potential to bring healing to others from the spirit world, there is no stopping her!
On the other hand Leo mediums can have a larger than average (for a medium, that is...) ego and get confused as to what mediumship is really all about, desiring to take centre stage and even receive congratulations for her work.
Keeping mediumship in the proper perspective is important for a Leo medium. She needs to remember that mediumship is about healing and service to others and that the medium is only the go between, not the star of the show.
Her innate performance ability, however, does make her a natural for platform or demonstration mediumship, where she can let her inherent talent shine as long as she remembers that it is not about her.
Leo round up:
Strength - Ability to heal through inspiration, strong performance medium
Challenge - Remembering that mediumship is about healing and service not congratulations
Natural clair - Clairvoyance, clairsentience
The Virgo Medium:
Ah yes... Virgo is all about the details. This is a perfect quality for a spirit medium to possess.
While others fumble around trying to catch and grasp the essence of the information from the spirit world the Virgo medium has it down pat in luminous detail.
The deets do not escape her!
Virgo mediums are the ones who bring through information like: "I have a gentleman here with gray hair, tall, slim build, about 80 years old. He has blue eyes and a warm smile. Oh and he's got a tattoo of a snake intertwined with the branch of a tree on his left arm. And cute dimples. Oh and a gold ring in the shape of a shield on his right hand third finger from the thumb. And a faint ladder-like scar on his right cheek... Oh and..."
You get the picture. They see and are able to report back on all the details.
The Virgo sun sign is also known for her rather critical nature, too. This can make things difficult when she turns that criticism onto herself in her mediumship.
Mediumship is an art, not a science and giving herself latitude to let go and just let it fly and perhaps even not get it totally perfect every time can be hard for a Virgo medium whose focus in most areas of her life is on perfection.
She needs to learn to temper her tendency to jump quickly to the conclusion that she didn't bring through enough information or that her mediumship was somehow flawed, and instead, allow herself to flow and let spirit move through her.
Virgos can be tough nuts to crack while they are learning, but, ultimately make wonderful, detail oriented mediums.
Virgos are naturally awesome clairvoyants and clairaudients.
Virgo round up:
Strength - Detail oriented, gets the spirit details really well
Challenge - Over critical perfection seeking can stunt mediumship growth and the flow with spirit
Natural clair - Clairvoyance, clairaudience
The Libra Medium:
Ever gracious and balanced Libras are born mediators, which makes them naturally suited to mediumship. After all a medium is THE mediator between the spirit and the physical world so this is a perfect way for a Libra to use her skills.
Libras has a very natural ability to sense what others need even before they express that need, a result of her innate psychic ability.
She is also very diplomatic and able to deliver the more difficult messages from the spirit world with relative ease world using just the right words.
The Libra medium receives most naturally through her claircognizance, followed closely by her clairsentience.
Someone I used to know would say: "A Libra is an Aries whose gone to charm school." There is some truth to that in that the Libra medium, like the Aries medium, does really well when the information comes in fast and furious from the spirit world. If things slow down the Libra medium may become indecisive as to whether or not what she is receiving is actually a sign from spirit then go into questioning that.
Daily meditation to help quiet her mind and steadily developing her trust in the spirit world are the best practices for a developing Libra medium.
She also has to learn not to give too much, either to the spirit world or the people for whom she is reading. As such developing clear boundaries is important for the Libra medium.
Libra round up:
Strength - Natural born mediator and psychic
Challenge - Giving too much, questioning what spirit sends rather than trusting it
Natural Clair - Claircognizance, clairsentience
The Scorpio Medium:
Scorpios are so naturally connected to the spirit world it is sometimes hard to believe that they are actually living in the physical... :)
A strong desire to plunge into the depths of both life and the afterlife make Scorpio a very good medium. She loves to explore mysteries and get to the bottom of things which can make her very intense and intensely committed to her work in talking with spirit.
This aspect can make it hard for her to close the door on the spirit world when the communication is over and it is appropriate and even necessary to bring things to a close.
As a result she can have a tendency to attract spirits who want to communicate when it is not a good time to do so, like when she is in the middle of a family dinner or involved in a conversation with a friend. Or in the middle of the night when she is trying to sleep...
Developing good boundaries with the spirit world is very, very important for the Scorpio medium.
A Scorpio medium tends to have naturally well developed clairsentience followed closely by clairvoyance.
She needs to trust what she is feeling from spirit, and what spirit is showing her. She also needs to understand that the information she receives from spirit, especially when she is receiving messages for other people, is not hers to 'keep' or get intense and excited about.
Just like a Leo medium, Scorpio needs to understand that she is only the go between, a conduit as it were, for the messages from the spirit world and let go of, rather than try to posses, the information from spirit once she has delivered it to the recipient.
Scorpio round up:
Strength - Natural connection with the spirit world
Challenges - Overly intense, lack of clear boundaries with the spirit world, over identification with information from spirit
Natural clair - Clairsentience, clairvoyance
Positive, outgoing Sagittarius's make good platform / demonstration mediums.
The Sagittarius medium is uplifting and delivers messages from the spirit world in a very inspiring manner so much so that she is often the audience favorite, when delivering messages in front of one.
She has a quick mind and filters her mediumship through her broad and optimistic view of life and death, therefore she is a natural candidate for dealing with the spirit world and can become really good at session work with clients using her mediumship, facilitating healing through her positive outlook.
The difficulty for the Sagittarius is similar to the Aries medium in that she likes to move in a fast and free manner so anything that doesn't keep up with that pace for her may get lost in translation.
Developing focus is, therefore, very important for the Sag medium and she can overcome this by committing herself to lots of this kind of practice and mediation in order to calm her mind and further develop her focus.
A Sagittarius medium naturally receives information through claircongnizance and clairsentience.
She may have a tendency to shy away from the experience of her clairsentience, often feeling overwhelmed and hemmed in by it, however, it is through embracing her gift in this area and utilizing it to the fullest that she eventually shines as a medium.
Sagittarius round up:
Strength - Positive, optimistic manner as a medium
Challenges - Holding necessary sustained focus and honoring natural clairsentience
Natural clair - Claircognizance, clairsentience
The Capricorn Medium:
Earthy Capricorns make naturally grounded mediums. They also have the stick-to-it-ness and ambition to follow through on their mediumship development and the determination to become the very best medium that they can be.
The Capricorn medium tends to have a no nonsense approach to both message delivery and the spirit world itself. She will not take any monkey business from spirits (like them wanting to communicate at off times, for example) and she is naturally able to draw firm boundaries which is why she is so grounded in her mediumship.
Capricorn mediums can, however, have a difficult time going with the flow in mediumship as they have a tendency to want to manage it so that it goes the way they want it to.
Alas, the spirit world cannot always be managed and learning to let go and let the communication flow is good practice for the Capricorn medium.
Not flowery in her delivery of the messages from spirit, the Capricorn medium tends to attract spirits who are interested in getting their message across to the recipient in as few flowery words as possible.
The comedians of the zodiac, Capricorns will often use humor in their mediumship message delivery.
Capricorns tend to receive first by clairsentience, followed closely by claircognizance.
Capricorn round up:
Strength - Groundedness, determination
Challenge - Tendency to want to manage the spirit world
Natural Clair - Clairsentience, claircognizance
The Aquarius Medium:
Quirky, quick minded, Aquarius is used to receiving regular flashes of incredible genius and inspiration through her claircognizance in her regular daily life.
Her mediumship, therefore, naturally flows thorough her strong claircognizance and she is easily able to capture and articulately disseminate the information received from the spirit world in this way.
However, the Aquarius medium, because of her strong tendency towards detachment often lets her very natural clairsentience and the information that she receives through this clair during mediumship pass her by without really noticing or acknowledging it.
Lots of practice honing in on and recognizing the feelings and physical sensations that come up during mediumship will help her overcome this, become good friends with her clairsentience and shine brightly as a medium.
Her friendly nature and willingness to help others are attributes that she can transfer to her mediumship, however, her tendency towards detachment can make her seem uncaring, especially in 1:1 session work or when delivering delicate information.
Focusing on getting completely in touch with her natural clairsentience, which will help to connect her with her empathic nature, is the answer to overcoming this slight drawback.
Aquarius round up:
Strength - Quick mind, articulate, natural connection to inspiration
Challenge - Too detached, out of touch with empathic nature
Natural clair - Claircognizance, clairsentience
The Pisces Medium:
If there was any zodiac sign that was born to be a medium, it is Pisces.
While the rest of the zodiac needs to work at developing these skills, Pisces natural born sensitivity, intuition and vivid imagination make her a natural conduit and candidate for mediumship.
She shines as a natural beacon of light to many spirits in the spirit world.
Her challenge, however, is closing the door when she is done and remaining grounded during message work.
This is why it is important for the Pisces medium to put clear systems into place for her mediumship work, with clearly defined opening and closing rituals, and clear boundaries set with the spirit world so she is not being called on at inappropriate times to bring through their messages.
She also needs to get real clear on where she ends and the person she is reading for begins otherwise she can easily fall into taking on her clients or message recipients feelings as if they were her own.
The good news is that through lots of practice and learning to set boundaries she gets better and better at knowing what is hers and what is not.
Yes, you guessed it... Pisces are natural born clairsentients and clairvoyants.
Pisces round up:
Strength - Natural born medium (got it all going on!)
Challenge - Setting clear boundaries for her strong empathic tendencies and with the spirit world
Natural clair - Clairsentience, clairvoyance
