Commanding (Obeying)

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

In traditional astrology, the commanding signs were Taurus through Virgo. The complementary signs, termed obeying, were Scorpio through Pisces. The commanding/obeying schema was a way of designating equal distances from the Aries-Libra axis, rather than an assertion about the characteristics of the relevant signs.
