Masculine Signs in astrology are signs which have traditionally been conceived as more active and less
receptive, primarily focusing on the spiritual/mental world. Air and Fire Signs are considered Masculine, whereas Earth and Water Signs are considered Feminine.
Generally speaking, planets in feminine signs in your horoscope add sensitivity and emotional depth, while those in masculine signs add spirituality and activity, whether physical or mental.
Masculine Signs are diurnal
(day-oriented), so the term masculine here should be viewed in the same light as the Yang (or bright) polarity of the Tao. The idea of masculinity is traditionally related to dryness and femininity to moisture. In the tropical zodiac, the first sign, rising at the vernal equinox, is Aries, defined as masculine. The next sign in order of the zodiac is Taurus, defined as feminine. The signs
thus alternate in gender around the circle of the zodiac. Bear in mind that every horoscope is a balancing act between the masculine and the feminine poles. The balance of light and dark, or Yang and Yin, or masculine and feminine is the achievement of perfection in the world.
