Positive Signs [Astro*Index]

Also called Masculine, Diurnal, or Fortunate Signs. An old classification of signs. The odd-numbered signs (fire and air signs) were thought to confer favor when rising. The even-numbered signs (earth and water signs), also called Feminine, Nocturnal, or Unfortunate Signs, were thought to be not as favorable. Modern astrologers divide the signs into the same two groups but think in terms of polarity or yin and yang rather than in terms of intrinsic value. Signs of the same polarity were at one time called Sympathetic because all their mundane aspects were either trines or sextiles.
