This research is something I have been looking at in earnest since when I noticed that people who were either Cancer Sun or Rising were often left handed. I completely ignored the fact that I was neither of those things! However, I have subsequently learnt that I have the moon rising, close to my ascendent, so the receptive, lunar personality is alive in me. However, since I have been looking at charts in more detail the most common astrological signature I see is a hard aspect between Mercury and Neptune.
My personal research and the information in books and various online journals indicates that left-handed people demonstrate an extra sensitivity, a watchful eye, insight, thoughtfulness and a quiet emotional intelligence.

It also corresponds with forgetfulness, sensitivity that erupts into total overreaction and creative living that most people understand as chaos. Researching left-handedness I have learnt that:. This is another big debate because we are not just defined by the hand we write with. Very often I meet people who are right handed but I have the feeling they have some right brain dominance and will push to see if they were an ambidextrous child, or forced to switch when they were younger and often they are left-footed or have some ability with their left side.
Modern science asserted that the right brain rules the left hand side of the body and the left brains rules the right.

More recent research is contesting this idea, but there is still something alternative in the cognitive function of the lefty. In his book Right-Hand, Left-Hand , Chris McManus of University College London argues that the proportion of left-handers is increasing and left-handed people as a group have historically produced an above-average quota of high achievers. Writing in Scientific American , McManus states that,. Also, a slightly larger number of left-handers than right-handers are especially gifted in music and math.
A study of musicians in professional orchestras found a significantly greater proportion of talented left-handers, even among those who played instruments that seem designed for right-handers, such as violins. Similarly, studies of adolescents who took tests to assess mathematical giftedness found many more left-handers in the population. The key attribute of the left hander is their sensitivity and I this is certainly seen in the astrological signatures I have noted.
Those people I have studied who are left handed but have neither a Mercury-Neptune aspect nor the Moon or Cancer rising will usually have the element of water pronounced in their chart. As we know, it is the most receptive element.

Another left-handed fact is that eight presidents of the USA have been left-handed. I have just had a look at their charts to put these theories to the test.
