Salamander is the tenth sign in the circle of destiny which rules over the period of 15th July until 15th August. In Bosnian mythology it is considered that every man has his own salamander, animal doppelganger or follower, which comes to him after his death to guard him or to devour him, depending on whether the man was good or bad. It is also believed that Salamanders are miniature versions of dragons on earth, the same one which according to legends satiates his hunger for warmth and light by devouring two out of three sun’, which were in the sky in ancient times. According to this legend salamander is a symbol of sun which positions him in the period of the year with the most intensive activity of solar warmth.

Female salamander

They need a flexible partner which can be in harmony with their demanding character. She is a loyal companion. Female salamander is of a restless spirit, she loves to travel, be in social gatherings and events since she “feeds” off of this and fills up with energy. She likes challenges, and even though she isn’t negative often in communication with others she can be indelicate with her statements.

She enjoys sex and is prone to experimenting. She is a careerist, is responsible when it comes to work and has leadership qualities. Since she leans towards having everything under control her nightmare scenario is not having enough money. Therefore she isn’t prone to extravagance, though she has a tendency of helping others.

Male salamander

He is an emotional person hiding underneath a thick layer of machoism. Whether we’re talking about expressive physical or character lines, each male member of this sign tries to accentuate his masculinity. Behind all of this is often hides fear from rejection and a great desire to hide insecurity. He is a gourmand which is perhaps not prone to creation and long term planning but he is someone which at every moment knows and wants to enjoy. He is prone to excesses, boasting and even lying, in order to present himself as a more ideal person. He is passionate, good lover. Charismatic. Despite that inborn insecurity makes him possessive. His ego often restrains him, he doesn’t like authority but respects friendship. He is attracted by passionate and communicative women. However, his love, if she desires to keep him, must be tolerant towards arbitrary behavior which he sometimes exhibits due to his hurt pride. It is known that a male under this sign doesn’t love working, and often chooses easier and simpler jobs. But, he functions well in smaller business settings, and often in individual work. Money isn’t important to him, he knows how to earn it and spend it.


Bosnian circle of destiny

Bosnian horoscope or Bosnian circle of destiny is based on an old division of the year into two parts summer and winter. That is why there is in the horoscope a dualistic division into six signs of light and six signs of darkness which together represent two principles i.e. good and evil and male and female sex. That's why every sign begins within a middle of one and ends in the middle of another month. The length of one sign begins and ends on the 15th of a month at noon exactly.

Sun and moon have a dominant influence over the Bosnian circle of destiny, and they also impact life on our planet the most. Signs over which the moon presides are usually family oriented, more prone to expressing feelings and in an extent more responsible. But we shouldn’t forget in this case the influence of earth itself which can sometimes have a more pronounced influence on people during winter times, even more so than the moon, because during the winter the sky is often covered with thick clouds and the sun and moon are distant i.e. hidden.

Light signs are the complete opposite to the dark ones and that difference is especially evident in their action, inclination to risk, changes and adventures. Strengthening of the sun’s rays, acceleration of the natural rhythm, constant weather changes, or even summer storms, perfectly describe the nature of people born during one of the six light signs. Because of it they are more prone to stress, annoyance, possessiveness, abrupt mood swings.

The names of the signs in the horoscope are not coincidental, they stem from Bosnian mythology arising from the ancient cult of the Grand Mother, whose worship dates from the Neolithic all the way to the Illyrians and until today. Even though the cult influence is not pronounced like during the ancient times it is still present in numerous segments of folk belief and mythological phenomena. The main signs of the horoscope are, the snake and dragon which represent two opposing sides which are at the same time permeate one another but also divide and they signify beginning and the end. They are the alpha and omega of the circle of destiny. In the middle of the circle the position has been taken by Granddad (Did, Djed) and Grandma or Baba, priest of the Bogomils and his wife, which can also be referred to as Illyrian divine couple Vidasus and Thana or solar god and lunar goddess.

In accordance to the dualistic teachings of the Bogomils the Bosnian circle of destiny dealt with both material and spiritual life of individuals, helping them to know themselves and their role in life, and it transformed all that was negative into the positive. That’s why the circle of destiny is nothing more than a Bogomil wheel of reincarnation through which the human soul passes through in order to reach final liberation. On that journey the soul takes both human and animal forms, but also vegetative forms, trying to teach us empathy and need to help one another, no matter what our physical form looks like nor where we come from. From the aspect of Bogomil philosophy each human being seeks liberation from negative elements of their karma in order to experience enlightenment in the end. The main mover of the circle of destiny are human ego, malice, greed, jealousy but also man as a dualistic being has the potential to perceive evil and to cleanse and purify himself of it through specific cycles, and achieve enlightenment. Illustration and the search through signs of the circle of destiny is best explained if we compare it to searching for gold, when the diggers would dig tons and tons of sand in order to find after exhausting work a few pebbles of gold.

Every man carries in himself the characteristics of all signs of the circle of destiny but the most dominant ones are from the sign during whose rain he was born. Also every sign has his own energy, vibration, which forms an individual and introduces into the new cycle. That’s why in the Bosnian horoscope the sign in which one is born represents his starting position from which the soul begins its journey further in the circle of destiny. That circle is physical and spiritual. We can follow it in the material and spiritual level from birth to death – we are born and we grow, we change constantly both physically and mentally, in order for that process to stop on one level and continue on another.

Relationships between people are defined by a basic division to male and female sex and the need for them to be combined in a whole. A large part of that need for a whole is described by the word love, which is as an occurrence the subject of all possible studies from the psychological, endocrinological, all the way to molecular and biochemical. All of these studies fulfilled some parameters, explained certain mechanisms, but did not define the thing in its entirety.

The circle of destiny, as all things in nature, is based on two opposite poles which attract each other. The basics of this division are the two lights - luminaries, Sun and Moon, which represent a man and a woman which are a unique mechanism connected by numerous aspects and rules, beginning with moon phases all the way to the exaltation of these two bodies. The sun represents the male principle and exalts in the sign of the Grandfather, first of six male signs of the circle of destiny, while the moon represents the female principle which exalts in the snake, the first sign which begins the dark part of the year. There is another division which constitutes universal couples - Grandmother and Grandfather; the dragon and the snake which are positioned at the beginning and the end of the circle of destiny. They are considered to be earthly and heavenly love couples through which life energy and fertility flows. Since love is the most important segment of this energy road in the Bosnian horoscope there is a part which deals with analysis and review of mutual emotional matching of signs, which is called Anzotika, according to the name of the ancient Illyrian goddess of love.
