I blame my Mars in Virgo but I love cleaning. Or my umpteen planets in Pisces? Yes, Pisces. And the people I know are neatly divided into two camps:
Those who loathe cleaning, bitch entertainingly about hating it, dread it and/or have even mounted a fairly spirited feminist argument against it. eg; that it saps their creativity.
Those who love cleaning and have turned the whole thing into a sacred art form that will usually involve some form of ritual candle burning, essential oil spraying, smudging and/or house blessing.
For instance, i was talking to the Piscean Beauty Fanatic the other week and was beside herself with glee as she was about to spend the whole Saturday cleaning. And yes, she does have a life – a business, pole dances & yoga for fitness & does a lot of Reiki/aura-soma style stuff.
I think that it does help if you have any sort of Feng Shui-Geomancy-Sacred Space style belief system. So you’re not just cleaning, you are instilling sparkling fresh Qi into your home environment, sorting your life (symbolically) as you sort your shite and setting your mind at ease.
But weirdly, the Solar Virgoans (sun sign virgo) seem to often resent it – it’s Moon in Virgo that gets off on it i.m.o.
Pisceans who have an ill-deserved slovenly reputation in astrology are often completely into zooshing up their environment & can happily compulsively clean for hours in between bouts of debauch. Same with Libra. I think because Pisceans are magical thinkers and Librans love scented symmetry.
Taureans and Cancerians would rather cook than clean – if you’ve really done a decent job sacred cleansing, there’s no WAY you want to stuff up the kitchen a.k.a. symbolic gleaming abundance pod. Aries & Gemini clean if there is a mission/reason to do so.
I suspect Leos & Capricorns to be naturally slovenly and deep down feel strongly that there ought to be Help. Good Help to slink around with white gloves dusting & offering to fetch the Leo/Cap a glass of champagne from the fridge that Good Help has just disinfected and vanilla-wiped.
Virgos often also hoard, the enemy of a clean and uncluttered space unless it’s something like bulk loo paper. ie; practical.
I think Sagg & Aquarius avoid it along the lines of some obscure tribe in Woop-Woop don’t do it as it is actually considered more cosmic to just sort of let dust evolve in its own style, dust being also an aspect of the cosmos…the particles that are us one moment are also the dust the next, quantum meta-physics and all…the Sagg once showered in a shithole on top of a barge in Borneo so is not concerned with a mild “ring” around the bath now because that’s your shit. Aquarius can also mount a reasonable Zen argument on top of all this.
There you have it; Pisceans & Librans clean for leisure, to sacredly space out, sort the Feng and settle their minds. Am I right or am I wrong?
