Character Reference Of The Reed Sign

Reed Characters Are The Duality Of The Ivy Sign. Persephone And Pluto Form a unifying aspect of the psyche which nevertheless is full of drama and passion. People born at this time have a powerful personal presence similar to the ivy people, the difference being that reed people are more forceful and less inclined to compromise, for they have a role to play which excludes any signs of weakness or the luxury of sitting on the fence. They act like catalysts rather than competitors in life, and they are more concerned with changing the whole formula of life rather than certain aspects of it. New moon people born during the first two weeks will make both powerful freinds and enemies as their initial response is inclined to be impatient and impulsive. They will, however, maintain their position and achieve a great deal of respect, especially from their adversaries. Full moon people plan their moves with more subtlety and acheive more recognition publicly, but they are inclined to want to move on to other things which can undermine their true sense of purpose. Generally speaking, reed people are great survivors in life who are inclined to encounter the hostility of others rather than a helping hand.
The roots of the reed go deeply into the water from which it takes its nourishment.  These roots are the strongest part of the reed, in fact - so its true strength is doubly hidden, both beneath the water and the floor of the pond or lake where it grows.  If you were born under this sign, you, too, have secret strength, and perhaps secret motivations, as well.  Your challenge is to use your "detective abilities" wisely, not to undermine others to find their weakness, but to evolve into a deeply perceptive individual whose wisdom can be used to teach others
