Brutish Signs

Brutish Signs

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

The archaic term “Brutish signs” refers to Leo and the last third (the Leo decan) of Sagittarius, which, when occupied by planets under unfavorable aspects or in some other manner afflicted, was said to produce natives with coarse, “brutish” natures. Modern astrologers have abandoned this term, as well as the connotations of afflicted planets in these two arcs.
