12 Realizations for Self-Awareness and Peace
These 12 Realizations correspond to the 12 signs of the Natural Zodiac beginning with Aries on the East point or left-hand side, what would be 9 on the clock.
My goal in outlining these 12 principle realizations is to remind you about 12 common aspects of human behavior so that you can know what they are and learn to recognize them when they occur. This recognition will lead to realizations about yourself and others towards greater self-awareness and peace as opposed to common confusions and frustrations.
- The first section represents the 4 Cardinal Signs and Houses: Aries & 1st House, Cancer and 4th House, Libra and 7th House, Capricorn and 10th House. These first 4 realizations are Cardinal and their source is The 4 Agreements, a best-selling book by Don Miguel Ruiz. They are placed in a different order, however, to correspond with the themes of the Signs and Houses of the Zodiac. (Read book to elaborate!)
- The second section represents the 4 Fixed Signs and Houses: Taurus and the 2nd House, Leo and the 5th House, Scorpio and the 8th House, Aquarius and the 11th house. These Signs and Houses will refer to the 4 Control Dramas used to manipulate is outlined in the book by James Redfield called The Celestine Prophecy. The order presented here is in accordance with the Signs and Houses. (Read book to elaborate!)
- The third section of 4 represents the 4 Mutable Signs and Houses: Gemini and the third House, Virgo and the 6th house, Sagittarius and the 9th House and Pisces and the 12th House. This section outlines 4 basic psychological behaviors. I am not sure who their original authors are but these are common among people.
