Staying Spiritual in a Materialistic World

Staying Spiritual in a Materialistic World
Finding the balance between inner light and outer greed can be a lifetime's work. Honing the ability to remain spiritual while you pay bills, run errands and engage in the mundane chores of everyday life is something that certain astrological signs find easier than others.

The signs that tend to lean toward materialism are Taurus, Capricorn, Cancer, Libra and Leo. They all like looking good, so they spend to impress and -- in the case of Taurus –- love to indulge. Learning to put more value on the invisible, ineffable things of the universe that cannot be possessed, controlled or bought requires special effort for these particular signs.

By nature, Aries, Sagittarius and Aquarius are not signs that like to get too weighed down by things. In their own element, they'll be happy to throw on a backpack and follow their inner star. Aries likes winning and at times can become overly focused on achievements, while Sagittarius needs to pay for their next long trip, occasionally getting stuck in a rut having to earn the money.

Aquarius comes in two types. One is Uranian -- the humanitarian rebel who finds solace in helping society's underdogs; the other, Saturnine, is serious and focused on status. The latter needs to shift toward their lost half.

Gemini has a variable attitude toward money. Some earn huge quantities and blossom when building their fortune, while others shrug nonchalantly and couldn't care less about what they earn or own. Either way, money isn't their problem when it comes to spiritual matters, although restlessness can be.

Virgo wants to find time for meditation, but keeps getting distracted by their list of chores. Their problem isn't getting sucked into the must-haves of television ads, but rather, rarely being able to create inner space for themselves.

Finally, Pisces and Scorpio each possess a huge capacity for entering spiritual realms. Pisces tends to do so a touch too much, sometimes losing contact with the real world. Their balance is often a delicate one of needing to support their body while living out their souls.

Scorpio understands best of all that the way into the spirit is through the body. Realizing that they need a path to reach transcendental bliss, they'll nurture their physical selves in a way that may seem indulgent, but really has a hidden purpose. Their daily treadmill through the material world leads them to a place that lies far beyond.
