Authority Archetype In The I*AM System of ‘The Astrology Advantage’

Authority sets the pace and keeps the rest of the world steady. Authorities take pride in their work and like to achieve.

The I*AM System is a new personality test, created by The AstroTwins, that uses astrology to identify your personal success archetype. Data from 13 planetary points in your astrological birth chart determines which I*AM archetype you are:

I = Innovator: These people come up with big ideas that push us out of comfort zones. Their lives are laboratories with an endless stream of experiments. These drivers of progress have astrological birth charts that contain mostly cardinal signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn.

A = Authority: These people are trustworthy types who like responsibility and structure. They can take an Innovator’s ideas and map them to a schedule or plan. They are the safe harbor that many people count on. Their astrological charts contain mostly fixed signs: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius.

M = Maven: These people are the info sponges and entertainers (the hosts with the most!) Once an Authority has made a plan, they’re the marketing and PR expert. Mavens embrace change and keep us from becoming stagnant. Their astrological charts contain mostly mutable signs: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces.

Are you an Authority? Find your I*AM archetype

Finding your archetype is easy with our free I*AM Calculator (or below). The data from 13 points in your birth chart determines your archetype: the Sun, moon, ascendant (rising sign), Nodes, plus the planets: Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.

To find your I*AM archetype, you’ll need the same three pieces of information that you do for a traditional astrological birth chart:

  • Your date of birth (month/day/year)
  • Your place of birth (city/state/country)
  • Your time of birth (If your birth time is unknown, enter 12:00 noon as a placeholder (the book explains more about how to find your birth time or work around not having it.)

Authorities are the how-to types who love a proven, step-by-step method for success. And once they master those moves, they might just create a winning system of their own.

Systematic and sensible, Authorities are often the voice of mindfulness and moderation, the diplomats who can stand the heat because they know how to play it cool.

Authorities in life (stable and able)

Authority sets the pace and keeps the rest of the world steady. Linear and structured, these hardworking builders prefer to go deep rather than wide.

Authorities take pride in their work and like to achieve. They are best served by finding their lane in life and getting better and better at it each day.

Authority in love and relationships: Authorities want long-term stability from their love lives. They don’t enter or exit relationships lightly.
