Barren Signs

Traditionally, the signs of the zodiac and some planets were classified into Barren - Gemini, Leo, Virgo or Fruitful /Fertile - Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces. This division referred to a person's ability to bear children. The practice has been abandoned by most modern astrologers because the research has not verified this interpretation, although some astrologers today still feel that a barren sign on the cusp of the 5th House may limit the number of children.
