View Full Version : Astrological appearance - link between siblings?

Hey all,

I am the second of four daughters and was born a Scorp. My other three sisters are Libran; the youngest was born on cusp of Libra/Scorpio. She looks very similar to me (sisters 2 & 4). When we were younger, sisters 1 & 3 looked very similar to each other.

I know that in general terms, each astrological sign is supposed to have common physical appearance traits.

So I was just wondering, genetics aside - is it because my youngest sister is the closest astrologically to me that we look similar? And same for sisters 1 & 3 (who were born 27/9 & 29/9 respectively)?

Has anybody else noticed this in their own families?

Birth dates (or Sun signs) alone will not always point to similarities in appearance. The time of the day and the time of the year will determine the Ascending Sign . . . and will often be stronger than a Sun Sign influence within a family. Of course genetics play a role -- have you ever noticed that one child will have the same color eyes as one parent while another child will have the color of eyes that the other parent has? As you noted, age is another factor. When we grow we often grow thru differing appearances as if we were trying out personalities. We are influenced by those around us that we can identify with. You don't believe it? Have you ever noticed that some dog lovers have appearance characteristics similar to their dogs?

The planet that is rising, if there is one close to the Ascendant, will often have a strong affect on the appearnance. This is a study unto itself. So, now you have a lot to think about. Dave.

Hi Purple_Scorp and Dadsnook2000...

There is some interesting and cool research being done on astrology and physical appearance with many photos by Sun/Moon/ASC posted for review...am leaving a site link below...

Ha, ha, ha.

Dave....guess what my ascending sign is?......LIBRA.

Starsongs, thanks for that link I've bookmarked it and will check it out later.

starsong: that's such a cool link! I wish they had more interpretations of their findings, but I guess the research is its early stages.

Is anyone here going to submit their info/photo?

In the name of research, I think we all should put our piccies there.

There is one male with same sun, asc, moon as me and I can see similarities (except for the goatee, lol, on him, lol!!!)

BTW - I posted that link on another forum that I frequent and got a reply from a woman who has her picture on that site. She couldn't see the similarities until I pointed them out to her.

Not with my kids, even with genetics aside

I have three- the first two are full blood brothers {born of two capi parents}

The oldest born Apr. 18 Aries {Taurus cusp} looks like me....now get this- I have saturn in aries and he has saturn in capricorn.

The younger boy is a Pisces- looks like his dad.

They have a half sister {again- out of two capi parents} She's a Leo. She looks more like the fish brother than the ram brother, but she also resembles me quite a bit.

And I think that both the fish and the lion kids have a capricorn rising.

Goddess Artemis and Purple_Scorp, glad you enjoyed the link..I did submit my photo and info a couple of years ago...and a few for other people..but then forgot about it for awhile ..

It would be great for research if lots more people were participating for sure..

Some of the groupings have striking resemblance, while others are minimal..lots of factors involved like dadsnook and lunalafey were discussing...
Aspects to the ASC (especially squares) and planets conjunct (like dadsnook mentioned) are 2 factors that contribute alot to physical appearance, I would think...LOL re the goatee..that would make a difference too! :D

I was attempting a very unscientific chart rectification for my Dad (based upon what I know of him rather than life events lol) because he doesn't have time of birth...This site was very helpful..although there is no way to prove it. Take a look at these 2 photos...my dad is image 6 in the series of photographs:

http://www.astrofaces.com/cgi-bin/ShowSMAGroup.cgi?sun=03&moon=00&asc=00

I had figured my Dad has a Gemini Sun, Pisces Moon and Virgo Rising. Because there is no time of birth, astrofaces has him listed as Gemini Sun with Moon (possibility of Pisces or Aquarius) and ASC unknown...

then there is a man who is listed with Sun in Gemini, Pisces Moon, Virgo rising..I think the resemblance is strong..any thoughts?

Hi starsongs,

I was just thinking, hmm, better apologise to the thread starter for taking over this thread (which is a bit of a bad habit of mine) but then I realised I am the thread starter, lol. So - cool!

In the first link where your dad is pic 6, I can see similarities between him and the 3rd and 4th women from the left (particularly the third woman).

Now, there is something about that guy in the second link - I can't stop staring at his photo. LOL. I put those two photos (his and your dad's) side by side and they are very similar, but reversed images. Don't you think? Call me fanatical but I flipped that other dude's photo to show you (see attached).

This stuff is really fascinating. Now I want to upload pictures of family and friends (with their permission, of course).

Hey, Purple _Scorp...if I've taken over this thread (or any other on AT) I apologize. It's not my intent to do so. Your post made me think of the Astro Faces site..and thought maybe you (and others) would find it interesting too...and one thing led to another...

I appreciate your feedback very much...I'm not sure what you mean by reversed images, however..can you explain further?

Did you find some data relevant to any of your initial questions by looking at the images over there?..I hope so...
:)

hi starsongs,

oh, I wasn't having a go at you. On the contrary....I think it is really interesting, even fascinating. Your website link demonstrates almost the exact point of my thread. It is very pertinent and I thank you for sharing it (cos now I've shared it on other forums too.) :)

Okay, reversed images. I flipped that dude with the hat's image horizontally. I noticed that his eyes were the reverse to your dads. One was kind of bigger and more open than the other (but they were opposing eyes - like your dad's left eye, that dude's right eye). So I flipped his image to get the eyes matching. It is now easier to see the likeness. I know it was a very subtle change but nevertheless an interesting exercise to do.

Hi purple_scorp..:)

Didn't get anything but a sense of good naturedness from what you said, so all the more reason to make certain I hadn't overstepped in any way! LOL..I appreciate your feedback..and I'm glad I hadn't :D

OK...gotcha now about reversals. upon looking again after your explanation, I see what you've done..how interesting and cool!! hmmmmmmmm...Thanks so much..off to ponder what this could mean and try some other things with the images..now you've inspired me...hehe

If you have any further thoughts on the reversal stuff, I'd love to hear them...

I Will watch for new photographs to appear soon on AstroFaces ;)

Well, this isn't relevant to astrological similarity but it is relevant to physical appearance in general. Did you know that our faces are not symmetrical? I remember seeing a documentary where they took the faces of movie stars etc and split them in half (a left and right side). Then, they cut out one side all together, and flipped the image of the other. So it left you with two left sides (but one reversed so it looked like a right side). These people looked totally different, even ugly.

And then another friend showed me a website where it displayed a series of faces (with differing features) and you got to quickly click on which ones you found the most (or least) attractive (depending on the question raised for that part) and then it analysed the results to show the type of person you are most likely going to want to date. Yeah, I think it was some kind of dating website.

Interesting, hey?

purple_scorp

This is really interesting for sure...wow...and that using the same half of the face reversed altered appearance so much...hmmmmmmmmmm....even making some appear ugly

Maybe the asymmetry makes us more interesting and attractive? I hadn't ever thought about that!

The dating site using click on most and least attractive physical features to match people up is definitely a novel approach ..LOL

Wondering now if perchance degrees of symmetry/asymmetry could be measured or seen through hemispheric influences in a natal chart?

Thanks for sharing :D

What synchronicity. :) The other day I was out for dinner with family for my birthday and there happened to be several birthday's going on (which I only knew because the waitresses came around to sing). I commented to my husband that I had never met anyone else (in person) with my birthday and that I was rather fascinated that each of these other 3 birthday persons looked similar to me in many ways... hair mostly and nose. I went to the astro faces web site and clicked my sun, moon and asc. and was quite impressed with the one picture that popped up. Thanks so much for sharing the link! That was a lot of fun and I know now that I wasn't just imagining the similarities in appearance. :)

I have two comments to share.

First, I went to a meeting many years ago in which the speaker took groups out of the audience whose birthdays were closely grouped. In some cases there were three or four, in other cases ten or fifteen people. He showed that these people exhibited their sun-signs in terms of Fire-Earth-Air-Water colors. It made no difference what color their eyes or hair was, they had a common aura or sense of color about them. It was quite interesting to see this actually be the case.

Second, I have observed over time that rising planets tend to provide certain facial characteristics. Moon brings a paleness and oval shape to the face, often with thin/fine light brown hair. Pluto tends to show itself with a narrow face and intense eyes, sometimes very bright or closer together, along with a focused personality. Sun brings vibrancy to the face. But, a Sun-Moon conjunction (or new moon situtaion, or eclipse) tends to paleness and calmness along with a sense of lassitude or lack of applied energy. There are lot of such characteristics that have been noted in books as well. Its one of those things that are not hard-and-fast rules but are generally true.

I think that the most interesting exercise is to look at charts where the rising degree of the other person is similar to yours and where some of the planet positions or patterns are also similar. For example, while we were born months apart, the chart of astrologer Noel Tyl is highly similar to my own. We look much alike, have parallel interests to a great degree, but have also expressed our own patterns and lives in differing ways.

Dave.
