The orientations refer to the three stages of relationship between the individual and his environment.
The first stage is the personal orientation. The initial four signs of Aries, Taurus, Gemini and Cancer correspond to the personal phase. The focus of these four signs is on getting personal wants and needs met.
An individual who exaggerates the personal orientation becomes selfish and egocentric. Those deficient can experience difficulty in fulfilling their basic survival needs.
The second stage is the interpersonal orientation. The signs Leo, Virgo, Libra and Scorpio are interpersonal in nature. These signs are social and focused on others.
The overly interpersonal individual can become too other directed and loose touch with his or her own sense of self. Those deficient can deny their need for human contact.
The third stage is the transpersonal orientation. The transpersonal signs are the final four signs of the zodiac ~ Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces. These signs are universal and focused on ideals and abstractions. They seek to understand our relationship to the universe at large.
An emphasis on the transpersonal can led to feeling out of place in the mundane world and being so concerned about discovering the meaning of life that practical matters are neglected. However, without any transpersonal leanings there is no connection to the greater whole and lack of a spiritual perspective towards life.
