About the 12 Zodiac Signs!

Charlotte Olympia Zodiac Shoes
I love astrology!!! This is no secret. It.just.makes.sense.to.me. As above, so below…why WOULDN’T we be affected by what happens in the universe if we are apart of it. Us humans are little tiny dots in the grand scheme of the entire universe. But I digress…
 
I know it’s hard for many to believe that millions of people can share personality traits because they are born around the same time. But this is where astrology is misunderstood. According to the Google, astrology isthe study of the movements and relative positions of celestial bodies interpreted as having an influence on human affairs and the natural world.”
 
The 12 signs/constellations of the zodiac are one facet of astrology but there is SO MUCH MORE. Astrology has been used for thousands of years by many ancient civilizations including Egyptians, Hindus, Chinese, Romans, Greeks and the Mayans. Astrology was considered to be apart of many of these civilizations survival with the movement of the planets, moon and sun being indicators of both prosperous times and famine.
 
The 12 zodiac signs that are recognized in Western astrology today are pretty much the same as the 12 signs that can be found in ancient Egyptian astrology, with a few tweaks here and there.
 

When someone asks you “What is your sign?” They are referring to your SUN sign. In western astrology this is considered to be one of the most important parts of your personal horoscope or natal chart, a snapshot of where the planets were located when you were born. Sun sign astrology can be fun and provide a lot of insight into your general likes/dislikes, demeanor and who you may get along with. But again, this is just one tiny piece of who you are. To find out the hidden depths of your personality, I highly recommend having a personalized natal chart reading. Learning about all 12 signs is essential if you want to get to know yourself better. Everyone has every sign somewhere in his or her natal chart and the journey through the 12 signs tells a story, much like a tarot card deck. Learn more about each zodiac sign below.

 
Note: The day the sun moves into a sign varies from year to year. The dates below are the general start and stop dates for a zodiac sign. If you are on the cusp (born at the beginning or end of an astrological sign) I highly recommend you cast your natal chart to be sure you are the sign you think you are! I know a Taurus who thought he was a Gemini his whole life! No bueno!!!

Aries Glyph

March 21st-April 19th

Element: Fire. Fire signs are outspoken, self-starters, adventure seekers and can be impatient.

Ruling Planet: Mars, Ancient god of war

Symbol: The Ram

Opposite Sign: Libra. Opposites attract or repel! What Aries lacks, Libra has and vice versa.

Lucky Day: Tuesday

Aries in one word: Initiator

Body part(s) Ruled by Aries: Head. Many Aries I know have struggled with migraines, head injuries and even severe acne.

Famous Aries: Maya Angelou, Thomas Jefferson, Hugh Hefner, Colin Powell, David Letterman, Alec Baldwin, Sarah Jessica Parker, Diana Ross, Kate Hudson

 

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and they tend to act like it! All three fire signs have a tendency to act quickly and speak their mind but Aries has a special knack for wanting to do everything first. Aries represents our inner child and first interaction with the physical world. Think back to when you were a small child. Many of us were fearless until our personalities began to be shaped by our family and people we interacted with. Aries at its core is fearless, wanting to take big leaps and experience life to its fullest. This fearlessness is encouraged by its ruler, Mars, the planet of action and aggression. Because of their courage, many Aries tend to make great leaders. They do not like being told what to do and if this is the case, entrepreneurship may be their best bet. But for every strength there is an equal “weakness” and Aries’ self-starting, fiery personality can easily come across as crass and flighty to others. Aries can have the tendency to start projects but not finish them. So it’s important that they surround themselves with other zodiac signs that can ground and stabilize their energetic personality. Libra (their opposite), Taurus and Leos can be great friends and collaborators to the ram.

ARIES IN LOVE

Aries men and women love the chase. They don’t want anything that comes to them too easily so if you have your eyes on an Aries, playing hard to get can work in your favor. But true to the nature of their sign, they are easily bored so if you are a homebody who doesn’t like to explore or try new things, this probably isn’t the sign for you. This doesn’t mean that Aries cannot “settle down” but their idea of settling down is committing to a lifetime of fun and fearlessness with someone they adore. And if you’re dating or married to an Aries, remember to let them take the lead, it’s in their nature. You’ll also need to develop a thick skin because they aren’t ones to mince words!

Taurus Glyph

April 20th– May 20th

Element: Earth. Earth signs are the grounded “builders” of the zodiac. In other words, they make shit happen.

Ruling Planet: Venus, Roman goddess of love, beauty and pleasure

Symbol: The Bull

Opposite Sign: Scorpio. Opposites attract or repel! What Taurus lacks, Scorpio has and vice versa.

Lucky Day: Friday

Taurus in one word: Steadfast

Body part(s) Ruled by Taurus: Neck & Throat. Google famous Taurus singers and you’ll find some of the best!

Famous Taureans: Adele, Stevie Wonder, Audrey Hepburn, Aaron Spelling, Cher, George Clooney, Sigmund Freud, Janet Jackson, Al Pacino, Jack Nicholson, William Shakespeare, Barbara Streisand

 

Where as Aries represents our first moments as a young infant, Taurus is our inner toddler, learning to depend on the material needs provided by the world. Taurus is represented by the bull. Thanks to Spanish bull fighting, bulls aren’t traditionally thought of as calm, cool, and collected animals but they are! They just want to be left alone and when provoked, they will hurt you! And so, the Taurus motto is “don’t start none, won’t be none.” Taurus is most concerned with material comforts and pleasure. Venus, goddess of love and beauty is this sign’s ruler so most Taureans are very driven by their 5 senses. And what provides nice material items? Money – the other thing that Taurus rules. You mess with a Taurean’s money, and you mess with your life. I kid, I kid, but seriously at the core Taurus wants to feel safe, comfortable and loved. As an earth sign, Taurus is a master builder that is able to turn dreams into reality. Now do you understand why they can be good business partners to Aries? They are extremely tenacious, sometimes to a fault, which is where the famous Taurus stubborn behavior comes into play. This sign has to learn things the hard way. They usually don’t believe hype, unless they themselves find it to be true. Taurus can succeed in many careers where hard work and endurance come to play, banking/finance and anything that involves creativity since Venus is so influential to this sign.

TAURUS IN LOVE

That Taurus tenacity spills over into every area of their lives, including their love live. When they commit to someone, they mean it. They can have a tendency to stay in relationships for too long because they are comfortable and familiar to them. If you’re a Taurus, trust that universe wants the best for you. If a relationship doesn’t feel right in your gut, let it go. There’s a better partner (probably a Capricorn) out there waiting for you. If you have your eyes on a Taurus, you better be ready to make some sort of investment (I’m not talking money) to win their love. Taureans love things of quality. A finely prepared meal, a beautiful keepsake, a romantic picnic in the park are keys to the Taurus heart. Once you have them, they will be yours forever. Or until you piss them off to the point of no return. Then you better make a run for it like a bullfighter!

Gemini Glyph

May 21st – June 20th

Element: Air. Air signs are talkative, intellectual and adaptable. They can sometimes spend too much time on ideas vs. executing

Ruling Planet: Mercury, The messenger god

Symbol: The Twins

Opposite Sign: Sagittarius. Opposites attract or repel! What Gemini lacks, Sagittarius has and vice versa.

Lucky Day: Wednesday

Gemini in one word: Adaptable

Body part(s) Ruled by Gemini: Hands, Arms, Lungs. Gemini’s are very animated and usually talk with their hands!

Famous Geminis: Marilyn Monroe, Kanye West, Paul McCartney, Donald Trump, Tim Allen, Clint Eastwood, Angelina Jolie, John F. Kennedy, Nicole Kidman, Josephine Baker

 

Ruled by communication and messenger planet, Mercury, Gemini represents how we first learn to communicate to others. All three air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) have a reputation for being chatty, but Gemini may in fact be the “chattiest.” Is that a word?? If you ever need someone to accompany you to a dinner party or networking event, call on one of your textbook Gemini friends. They’ll take the pressure off you to keep the conversation going! Now not all Geminis are extroverted socialites but most of them are gifted in communication of some sort whether it’s writing, acting or simply verbally connecting with strangers. Gemini is represented by the twins, giving a duality these native’s personalities and the reputation for being two-faced. I wouldn’t necessarily say this is true, but as a mutable (adaptable) sign, their interests are constantly changing and evolving along with their moods. Gemini’s are quick witted and have a knack for mastering new skills quicker than most. They can excel at puzzles, word games, even standardized tests. Because Geminis are good at so many things, some may become jacks-of-all-trades, masters of nothing. But this is probably ok to them! They hate boredom and wouldn’t be caught dead doing just one thing for the rest of their lives. Since this sign rules communication and short distance travel, Gemini’s can excel at an array of different professions. Pretty much anything that involves people and multi-tasking since this sign needs to be constantly stimulated.

GEMINI IN LOVE

Geminis sometimes get a bad wrap when it comes to love relationships but many of them are misunderstood. No sign is perfect and we all have our pitfalls when it comes to love relationships. Gemini’s biggest gift and curse is that they have so many different interests and this includes people! Many of them love connecting with people and the thought of being stuck with one person and one perspective for the rest of their lives freaks them out. This is not to say that Gemini’s are not able to commit to one partner, but the other aspects/planetary placements in their natal chart will reveal what they are looking for in a love relationship. I will say that there are a few signs that may have a tendency to settle down later on in life and Gemini is one of them. Much like their opposite sign Sagittarius, they need the freedom to experience life and all that it has to offer before they “settle.” I see this more so with Gemini men than women, but again it depends on the person and their birth chart. If you are lucky enough to get a Gemini to commit to you, don’t be boring! The way to keep them engaged is to keep them mentally stimulated. If you don’t it’s guaranteed they’ll find someone that will!

Cancer Glyph

June 21st – July 22nd

Element: Water. Water signs are the intuitive, feelers of the zodiac. They can sometimes let their emotions overtake them

Ruling Planet: The Moon, mother of emotions

Symbol: The Crab

Opposite Sign: Capricorn. Opposites attract or repel! What Cancer lacks, Capricorn has and vice versa.

Lucky Day: Monday

Cancer in one word: Cautious

Body part(s) Ruled by Cancer: Breasts and Stomach. The moon represents the mother in astrology and some cancers make the best cooks!

Famous Cancers: Nelson Mandela, George W. Bush, Princess Diana, Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks, Ernest Hemingway, Prince William, Mike Tyson, 50 Cent, Sylvester Stallone

 

Cancer teaches us how to get in touch with our emotions. We all have both male and female energy and it’s important to nurture both to stay balanced. All water signs are emotional and intuitive but in different ways. In my experience, Cancers are more sensitive to people and the world around them because they have a natural “motherly” instinct. Yes this applies to the males too! Cancer is ruled by the moon and the moon represents the mother in astrology. Cancers are great at nurturing others, sometimes to the detriment of their own self-esteem. Represented by the crab, this sign is tough on the outside and soft on the inside, making them not so easy to get to know. But once they open their heart to you, they give 100 percent. If you live with or spend a lot of time with a Cancer, be ready to experience their different mood swings. Because the moon is this sign’s ruler, and the moon moves faster than any other “planet” in astrology, their moods can change from day to day. This is not an easy thing to deal with! If you’re a cancer or have personal planets in cancer, look to foster some of the traits of your opposite sign Capricorn. It’s important to do grounding exercises and to even get outside to bring yourself “down to earth.” Although Cancer is an intuitive caregiver, they can excel at several different careers such as financial analysts, chefs, interior decorators and CEOs. Many cancers have great business sense, which is probably attributed to their ability to intuitively know what people need and want.

CANCER IN LOVE

 The key to a Cancer’s heart is through their stomach! Cancer rules the 4th house in a natal chart, which is attributed to everything home related, including home cooked meals! Many Cancer’s are good cooks so be prepared to have your taste buds dance from their delicious meals. And if you know a Cancer that doesn’t like to cook, I can bet you that they love to eat. Either way, cuisine will probably be a big part of your love story. Cancer’s are very protective of their heart, they need to feel completely secure before they open up to you so be patient. Once they get that sense of security, they can become one of the best partners in the zodiac. They are great at attending to their partner’s wants and needs so if you’re with a cancer make sure to let them know how much you appreciate them. One thing I have noticed in my astrological studies over the years is that Cancer’s from broken homes or whom have an afflicted relationship with a parent, specifically the mother, can have major difficulties in relationships. If you’re a Cancer and you are having a hard time finding and/or keeping a partner, the best thing for you to do is work through your childhood issues. Emotional healing is the key to your happiness.

Leo Glyph

July 23rd – August 22nd

Element: Fire. Fire signs are outspoken, self-starters, adventure seekers and can be impatient.

Ruling Planet: The Sun, provider of all life and human vitality

Symbol: The Lion

Opposite Sign: Aquarius. Opposites attract or repel! What Leo lacks, Aquarius has and vice versa.

Lucky Day: Sunday

Leo in one word: Prideful

Body part(s) Ruled by Leo: Back, spine and heart. Leos are known for having huge hearts, except the cowardly lion from The Wizard of Oz

Famous Leos: Barack Obama, Halle Berry, Jennifer Lopez, Mick Jagger, Madonna, Bill Clinton, Ben Affleck, Lucille Ball, Napoleon Bonaparte, Coco Chanel, Robert De Niro, Alfred Hitchcock, Whitney Houston, Magic Johnson, Yves Saint Laurent, Andy Warhol

 

Leo is ruled by the Sun, the center of the solar system which in astrology represents the human life force and vitality. It’s no wonder many Leos think they are the center of the universe! Leos have a reputation for wanting to be the center of attention but of course this does not ring true for every Leo. At the core, they want and need to feel loved and appreciated. Leo is one of the most loyal signs in the zodiac and they expect to receive the same love and loyalty that they give to their friends and loved ones back. Like Aries, many Leos are natural born leaders. As the second fire sign of the zodiac, they are good at taking initiative and because Leo is a fixed sign, they have the ability to stick with anything they start. Fixed signs are also stubborn. So if you get into an argument with a Leo, don’t expect them to apologize first. Remember, this sign is represented by the Lion so they have a lot of pride! When it comes to career, no matter what industry they are in, Leos need to be in charge. And if they are not in charge, they will not want to be bossed around. So it’s best for Leos to take positions where an entrepreneurial spirit is appreciated, they can work independently or accelerate to a management position. Leo rules the 5th house of creativity, children and romance so they do well positions that require some level of creativity. Like Gemini, many famous actors are Leos, further supporting their reputation for needing recognition.

LEO IN LOVE

Leos are romantics at heart and they have big ones. If you’re lucky enough to catch the eye of a Leo be prepared to put your all into them and your relationship. The minute they feel that you are not giving them the attention they deserve, they may drop you and move on to the next suitor. They are very loyal, but like I said, they expect the same in return. One of Leo’s favorite subjects is themselves, so be prepared to listen to stories about their past, family and aspirations. Also be prepared for them to take the lead most of the time. This sign knows what they want and doesn’t mind picking the restaurant to go to for dinner or your next vacation destination. Leos love to have a good time, they can be playful and fun so if you’re too uptight this will be a turnoff to them. Also remember to praise and compliment them, nothing makes a Leo feel better. If you give your all and love them like they want you to, you can expect to be loved, pampered and adored forever by this loyal lion.

Virgo Glyph

August 23rd-September 22nd

Element: Earth. Earth signs are the grounded “builders” of the zodiac. In other words, they make shit happen.

Ruling Planet: Mercury, The messenger god

Symbol: The Virgin

Opposite Sign: Pisces. Opposites attract or repel! What Virgo lacks, Pisces has and vice versa.

Lucky Day: Wednesday

Virgo in one word: Meticulous

Body part(s) Ruled by Virgo: Nervous system & intestines. Most Virgos could learn to relax a little!

Famous Virgos: Beyoncé, Michael Jackson, Kobe Bryant, Mother Teresa, Cameron Diaz, Hugh Grant, Samuel Jackson, Sophia Loren, Arnold Palmer, Jerry Seinfeld, Charlie Sheen, Stephen King

 

Beyoncé, Kobe Bryant, Michael Jackson …the end. Need I say more? Virgo is the sign that is able to master anything they put their mind to. Virgo is an earth sign, the builders of the zodiac but like Gemini, is ruled by messenger planet Mercury, giving them restless mental energy. I’ve never met a lazy Virgo. I’m sure they must exist but there are probably some other planetary placements in their natal chart that drain their energy. If anything, Virgos could learn to relax a little. This sign is detailed oriented, meticulous and has perfectionist tendencies, which could be a source of major anxiety in their life if they don’t learn how to channel their restless energy in a positive way. Although Gemini and Virgo share the same ruler, these two signs are very different, Gemini being more extroverted. Virgo is represented by the virgin, the symbol of purity. Many Virgos tend to be shy, especially when they are young children. They build confidence as they get older by mastering new skills and talents. Virgos also have a reputation for being neat freaks and germaphobes. While I have met my fair share of Virgos with these qualities, this is not always true. Even if they have a tendency to be messy, they usually know where everything is placed. And because Virgo rules the 6th house of work, service and health, many of them are health conscious but it can come from a place of insecurity, with them constantly judging their looks and/or their weight. Virgo can thrive in any career where they are making a difference in people’s lives. Their sign rules service so the hospitality or medical industries could be fulfilling to them. But they can excel at anything that involves detail such as fashion design, computer technology or makeup artistry. They are able to see the details that other signs may miss. And that is a true gift!

VIRGO IN LOVE

If you plan on just “getting by” in life with no personal growth or challenges, don’t even bother pursuing a Virgo. Virgos are constantly working to improve themselves in some way and they don’t have time to waste on someone who is happy with mediocrity. Virgos have a reputation for being boring but this is not true. They know how to have a good time…after all of their business is handled. They may come across as shy in public but they can talk up a storm to the people they are closest with so you must be a good listener. They are tough critics so be prepared for them to speak their mind when they feel you could do better in an area of your life. Try not to take it personally. They truly just want the best for you. Besides, they will hold themselves to the same standard that they hold you. Virgo being an earth sign means they are able to see things through and this includes relationships. Once they open their heart to you they can be a steady and loyal lover.

Libra Glyph

September 23rd – October 22nd

Element: Air. Air signs are talkative, intellectual and adaptable. They can sometimes spend too much time on ideas vs. executing

Ruling Planet: Venus, Roman goddess of love, beauty and pleasure

Symbol: The Scales

Opposite Sign: Aries. Opposites attract or repel! What Libra lacks, Aries has and vice versa.

Lucky Day: Friday

Libra in one word: Diplomatic

Body part(s) Ruled by Libra: Lower Back, rear end and kidneys. When a Libra feels unbalanced he/she can experience discomfort in these areas.

Famous Libras: Brigitte Bardot, Truman Capote, Ray Charles, Matt Damon, Michael Douglas, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Mahatma Gandhi, Rita Hayworth, Donna Karan, Ralph Lauren, John Lennon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Will Smith, Barbara Walters, Snoop Dogg

 

Libra teaches us how to relate and cooperate with others. This is the sign of partnership and Libras love relationships! Libra is the second air sign of the zodiac so they are intellectual, social and full of new ideas. People under this sign were born to collaborate with others and many of them may believe that they are the best version of themselves when in a partnership, whether it’s romantic or business. Like Taurus, Libra’s ruler is love and beauty sign Venus giving them extra charm, creativity and a love for beautiful things. Many Libras have great taste and artistic talents. They are romantics at heart and giving and receiving love are vital to their happiness. Libra is represented by the scales, which explains this sign’s need for balance in their lives. If I had to place a bet on the most indecisive sign of the zodiac, it would be on Libra, with Gemini in second place. They can’t help it! They are obsessed with making the best, most fair decision and this requires a lot of thinking and weighing options back and forth in their head. Don’t ask a Libra to pick where your group of friends should go for dinner, you’ll starve to death! They are so concerned with making situations harmonious for everyone that they sometimes stifle themselves. Libra’s ability to stay impartial is both a gift and a curse. They can see both sides of a difficult situation but when caught in the middle of two close friends or acquaintances, they can appear to be two-faced. This is not their intention. They just want to provide support to both parties so that everyone can get a long. Because Libras tend to stay neutral and get along with people from all walks of life, they make great lawyers and judges. They can be excellent orators and when coupled with their natural charm, they are able to quickly win a crowd over. Other occupations good for Libras are those that involve the arts – music, drawing and anything in the creative realm.

LIBRA IN LOVE

Libras were born to love. This is the sign that from a young age always had a best friend, boyfriend or girlfriend. (COUGH! Kim Kardashian). They get energy and self-assurance from others, especially their significant other. This is why it is so important for a Libra to choose the right life partner. Putting their trust in the wrong person could lead them down a detrimental path. Libras are people pleasers so it’s important for them to build self-confidence and learn to stand up for what they believe in. Harmony 100% of the time is impossible and conflict is necessary for personal growth. If you’re looking to win the heart of a Libra, turn up the dial on the romance. They love and appreciate the little things – a love note, a date at a museum, a musical serenade. They can be a little superficial so you must be well dressed and well groomed! This sign loves and appreciates beauty and people so don’t be surprised if you catch them flirting from time to time. They can’t help it. If you’re secure and doing all the things to keep this lovely Libra satisfied, you have nothing to worry about.

Scorpio Glyph

October 23rd – November 21st

Element: Water. Water signs are the intuitive, feelers of the zodiac. They can sometimes let their emotions over take them

Ruling Planet: Pluto, god of the underworld & Mars (ancient ruler before the discovery of Pluto), Ancient god of war

Symbol: The Scorpion

Opposite Sign: Taurus. Opposites attract or repel! What Scorpio lacks, Taurus has and vice versa.

Lucky Day: Tuesday

Scorpio in one word: Transformer

Body part(s) Ruled by Scorpio: Genitals. Now you know where their reputation for being sex obsessed comes from!

Famous Scorpios: Hilary Clinton, Leonardo DiCaprio, Bo Derek, Danny DeVito, Whoopi Goldberg, Bill Gates, Grace Kelly, Robert Kennedy, Calvin Klein, Fran Lebowitz, Demi Moore, Pablo Picasso, Julia Roberts, Theodore Roosevelt, Maria Shriver

 

Deep, mysterious, transformative. This is Scorpio, the second water sign of the zodiac. Scorpios possess a huge amount of personal power and have a need for control. This can be the key to their success or their detriment. Scorpio’s ancient ruler is Mars, the god of war but after Pluto was discovered, it was assigned as Scorpios modern ruler. Pluto was the god of the underworld and Scorpios are able to tap into the energy of both of its rulers. All three water signs are the emotional feelers of the zodiac but Scorpio is probably the most direct when compared to Cancer and Pisces. You will always know where you stand with a Scorpio, and if you don’t you better watch out because if they don’t like you, they have the power to destroy you with their scorpion stinger! This may sound dramatic, but one of Scorpio’s gifts is to quickly spot the weakness of an opponent and indirectly use it against them. This is why this sign has a reputation for being manipulative and calculating. On the flip side, Scorpios have the ability to become great healers and advocates of positive change, which is why it is important for them to learn to love themselves and let go of negative thinking. Many Scorpios radiate intense energy, which can be felt by anyone in their presence. This is the result of many trials and tribulations they’ve had to overcome throughout their life. Scorpio rules the 8th house of death, shared resources and regeneration and these are themes that will follow them throughout life. It doesn’t mean literal death, we all experience death at one time or another. It is more of a metaphorical death where a major event will happen in their lives, there will be an ending and they will be “reborn” as a stronger, more resilient person. In my personal opinion, Scorpio is the strongest sign in the zodiac. There are three levels of Scorpio and depending on the choices he/she makes in this life, they will usually fall into one of the three categories. The scorpion, who focuses on the negative and uses its stinger to seek revenge on others who have wronged them. The Eagle, a more evolved Scorpio who starts to see the glass half full and uses their experiences to excel in life. And the Phoenix rising from the ashes, the most evolved Scorpio who uses their personal power to help heal others and transform their lives in positive ways. If you’re a Scorpio, you should strive to become the Phoenix, it will be the best thing you can do for yourself and the world. Scorpios can excel in any career, using their intuition and powers of persuasion to get ahead. They are natural investigators so they can do well as detectives, working in hospitals and even morgues! They are usually very good with money so they can find success in business and banking as well.

SCORPIO IN LOVE

If you’ve dated a Scorpio, I would almost bet my life that it was an intense relationship. This sign is not one to play around with. Scorpios are usually all or nothing people and like Capricorn, do not date frivolously. They are passionate, expressive and love hard. If a Scorpio loves you, consider yourself blessed. You have an ally that will fight the world to protect you. But that same passion can turn to hatred if you betray them. So don’t! They expect loyalty and it may be hard to please them because many of them are loners at heart that feel they are in this world alone. Much like Cancer, Scorpio needs to feel secure and loved. And one way to express this is through sex. This is the sign that loves to feel connected to their partner and for them there is no better connection than in the bedroom. This doesn’t mean that this is all they want from you, but sex is vital to their well-being. Scorpios don’t like surface level relationships, they want to know your deepest darkest secrets and they will guard them. But don’t expect them to reveal their secrets to you. Some of them have secrets that they will take with them to the grave. Don’t push them for information. Let them naturally open up to you on their own terms. Remember to encourage them and let them take the lead. If you’re looking for a passionate, loyal partner that is good in bed, find yourself a Scorpio. If you dare…

Sagittarius Glyph
November 22nd – December 21st

Element: Fire. Fire signs are outspoken, self-starters, adventure seekers and can be impatient.

Ruling Planet: Jupiter, Roman god of the heavens

Symbol: The Archer

Opposite Sign: Gemini. Opposites attract or repel! What Sagittarius lacks, Gemini has and vice versa.

Lucky Day: Thursday

Sagittarius in one word: Optimistic

Body part(s) Ruled by Sagittarius: Liver, hips and thighs. Sagittarius is represented by a centaur, half man, half horse. Of course they have killer thighs!

Famous Sagittarians: Jay Z, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Jamie Foxx, John F. Kennedy Jr. Tyra Banks, Nicki Minaj, Sammy Davis Jr., Walt Disney, Kirk Douglas, Jane Fonda, Brad Pitt, Frank Sinatra, Taylor Swift, Tina Turner

 

Freedom seeking Sagittarius is the last fire sign of the zodiac and is represented by the Archer. The Archer is a Centaur, a half man, half horse creature from Greek mythology with a bow and arrow, symbolizing the Sagittarian’s love for adventure. Sagittarians may be the hardest people in the zodiac to pin down. This sign rules the 9th house of travel and education and they are eternal students of life. Like their opposite sign Gemini, many Sagittarians know a lot of random facts. They have a vivid memory like no other and are not limited by time. A Sag can give you a call after not speaking for 10 years and will try to pick up exactly where you left off. Once a friend to them, always a friend. But don’t expect them to be at your beck and call. They are on the move and not the most reliable when it comes to everyday menial tasks. But they will be there when you need to be encouraged. Sagittarius’ ruler is planet of luck and expansion, Jupiter giving them the spirit of eternal optimism. But they can be optimistic to a fault, taking uncalculated risks or resting on their laurels because they believe things will work out. Things usually do work out for them with Jupiter watching over them, but sometimes luck runs out and they have to learn a lesson the hard way. Like the other two fire signs, Aries and Leo, Sagittarians are quick to speak their mind, which can be a gift and a curse. They are quick witted but many are also hot-tempered. Jupiter gives them a naturally jovial spirit but if you make them angry, watch out! They will give you a piece of their mind and most likely regret it later. They may move on from it and be back to their normal happy-go-lucky self while the victim of their harsh words feels deflated. Sagittarians usually have great outgoing personalities and are able to make friends quickly. Because of this, opportunities show up for them that other people may not receive. They can do great in sales positions, in the hospitality industry, or in education. One thing’s for sure, if you have a Sagittarian friend, you’re guaranteed to have some fun when they’re around.

SAGITTARIUS IN LOVE 

Sagittarians are lovers of life and because of this love, especially for Sagittarian men, may take a back seat. This is not to say that all Sagittarians are roaming around in the world, not able to commit but this sign cannot be “tied” down. Sagittarians need their freedom so even when in a committed partnership or marriage, they need space from their partner to do their own thing. Don’t even think about ever giving them an ultimatum. They’ll be out the door in a flash. Anyone who dates a Sag needs to be secure and have their own hobbies and interests or they will be hugely disappointed. But when they do get some qt with their archer lover, they will most likely have a great time. Their idea of fun is travelling/exploring, trying different foods, and meeting new people. Sagittarians are very supportive mates, encouraging their significant others to go for their dreams. And they expect the same in return since they are always dreaming big. It’s good for them to have a partner that helps keep them grounded as they can be prone to overdoing everything, eating, gambling, partying! Sag is one of the least traditional signs in the zodiac, much like Aquarius so although many may want to settle down, they may not do so until later in life. But if they do settle down early, it will most likely be with someone who is willing to explore, learn and connect with people from all walks of life with them.

Picture a lone goat, slowly climbing up a cold mountain, step by step until it reaches the top. This is Capricorn, slow, steady and determined to achieve their goals. Capricorn is the last earth sign of the zodiac and a master builder like Taurus and Virgo. All earth signs need stability and are motivated to build something significant in their lives but for different reasons. Taurus wants material comforts, Virgo, a solid foundation to help others, and Capricorn wants respect and recognition. Capricorn rules the 10th house of career and public image and these are two things that are extremely important to most Capricorns. They have a ferocious drive to achieve some sort of success but this can lead the goat to becoming unfulfilled. Everyone can relate to wanting something so bad in life and then when you finally get it, you get bored and move on to the next thing. This can be a never-ending cycle in a Capricorn’s life if they don’t learn to embrace their more spiritual side. Capricorn’s opposite sign is water sign cancer so they can look to develop Cancerian traits to avoid becoming too success driven. Capricorn’s ruler is Saturn, planet of structure and hard lessons. Saturn can give Capricorn a melancholic outlook at times, much different than the eternal optimism of Sagittarius, the sign before Cap. Saturn is a planet that gets a bad wrap. It puts you through numerous trials and tribulations so that you become stronger and when you do it repays you. This is an ongoing theme in Capricorn’s life. Working tirelessly, feeling restricted, often frustrated but eventually the hard work pays off, BIG. Capricorn has the endurance to see goals through and when other signs may have given up, they keep going. Capricorn knows it will eventually reach the top of the mountain. For this reason, many Capricorns will achieve moderate success in their younger years but later in life, they can see success wilder than they ever dreamed…if they stay focused and on track. Because of Capricorn’s ambition and drive, they are able to flourish in any industry. It’s important that they are able to move up the ranks so you will not find them in a dead-end job. One thing I would suggest is for Capricorn to find their passion or life purpose and try to turn it into a career. Capricorn cans have a tendency to go for the job that pays the most or gives them the most recognition and this can cause them to resent their career. They can do well in business, as managers and politicians.

CAPRICORN IN LOVE

Because public image is so important to Capricorn, you will not see them date anyone that doesn’t raise their personal stock in some way. They can be attracted to career driven mates like themselves. A different is extreme is for them to date someone who is completely subservient so that they can run the show. But in my personal experience, the latter is quite rare. Capricorns do not like lazy people. Much like their fellow earth sign, Virgo, they want to see their significant other putting their best foot forward and bettering themselves. So they can be quite critical if you don’t live up to an image they are projecting you to be. Contrary to popular belief, Capricorns are very sensitive. My theory is that they have a shadow sensitive side similar to their opposite sign Cancer, that they learn to build a wall around and protect at a young age. They are already very hard on themselves so it is hard for them to take criticism from others. They don’t open up easily and it may take a while for you to get through to their heart. But when Capricorn commits to you they can be a very loyal partner. They don’t settle down with any old Jane or Joe off the street and dating frivolously is not something they’re into. Many of them are very traditional, especially the men. They want a lady in the streets and a freak in the bed. Because of Capricorn’s laser focus on career and status, many of them wait until they feel “established” to marry. If you’re dating a Cap or want to date a cap, make sure to have your own career ambitions, don’t act overly emotional around them, and #stayclassy.

Did you know that Aquarius & Scorpio are the zodiac signs with the most US Presidents? I didn’t mention this in the Scorpio description but I am for Aquarius because this is the sign of humanitarianism. Aquarius is often mistaken for a water sign because it’s symbol is the water bearer but it is actually an air sign. The water bearer represents the free flow of ideas and universal spirituality, which is very much a part of Aquarian’s DNA. Like the two other air signs of the zodiac, Gemini and Libra, Aquarians are intellectually driven and love to share ideas with others. But what makes this sign different than the other two is its innate ability to stay disconnected from the people with whom they are exchanging ideas. Hence where the Aquarian reputation for being detached comes from. Aquarians are concerned with the wellbeing of ALL living things on a macro level which is why they can make great leaders. Unlike a water sign that feels what others are going through, Aquarians intellectualize their emotions which keeps them from actually “feeling” them. This is great for people who need to remain impartial in times where judgement is required, but not so great for interpersonal relationships where person to person empathy is required. Because of this Aquarians usually have many acquaintances but very few close friends. This is a complex sign that craves human connection AND personal freedom/solidarity at the same time. I love to use Oprah Winfrey as an example for the quintessential Aquarian. She is able to connect with an audience and her guests like no other but she does not “take on” their drama. We also know very little about her private life and she likes it that way! Aquarius’ modern ruler is planet of unexpected change, Uranus. Before Uranus was discovered, Saturn was this sign’s ruler giving Aquarius both a reserved & erratic disposition. Many Aquarians are natural dissenters, going against the grain just because they can. Don’t start an argument with an Aquarian if you aren’t ready to back up your beliefs with facts and reasoning’s for why you think the way you do. They are not trying to be a-holes; they just want to see (in their own way) if you have really thought through your positioning. They are open minded and do not have patience for dogmatic or limited thinking. Because Aquarians are so open minded, they are willing to delve into taboo subjects including the occult. In fact, astrology is associated with the sign of Aquarius. They are interested in learning as much about the world as possible which gives them an edge when it comes to relating with people from all walks of life. Aquarians versatility and intellect is beneficial in careers such as education (they make great professors), world leaders, Non-profit organizers and writers.

AQUARIUS IN LOVE

If I had to make a choice of the 3 signs that are the hardest to “pin down” into love relationships in the zodiac, it would be Sagittarius, Gemini and Aquarius. There are a lot of astrological factors as to why/when a person chooses to settle which can be seen by the other placements in their natal chart but simply put Aquarians cannot and will not be controlled. So if you want to date an Aquarius I hope you are an independent spirit. If you’re lucky enough to win the affection of an Aquarius, you’re probably a very interesting person. This sign is attracted to people with intellect and the ability to form their own opinions. They also admire people with a humanitarian edge. They do not like overly emotional displays of affection (unless they have their moon or other personal planets in water signs). It makes them uncomfortable. They are thinkers, not feelers so if you approach them with an issue that involves how you feel, you will most likely be met with a myriad of questions as to why and how you came to feel that way. And for a sign that lives in their feelings (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, Leo, I’m talking to you), this can be frustrating. Some people just want to be understood. It’s not that Aquarians don’t have the ability to understand a person, they actually understand people better than any other sign. They just don’t have the patience for people who are too wrapped up in how they feel. Aquarians are concerned with the well-being of all humanity, so independent feelings are not at the top of their concerns. Ironically Aquarians are one of the most stubborn signs in the zodiac. Like Taurus, Leo and Scorpio, it’s a fixed sign giving them tremendous drive but inflexibility when it comes to personal beliefs. Because of this fixed demeanor, when an Aquarius does commit to a partner, they are very loyal and interesting! They will keep you entertained with their dry sense of humor (similar to Capricorn’s), never-ending knowledge of interesting facts and eccentricity.

Pisces GlyphFebruary 19th – March 20th

Lucky Day: Friday

Pisces in one word: Mutable

Body part(s) Ruled by Pisces: The feet. Ironically fish do not have feet but two fishes swimming in opposite directions represent Pisces. Movement would not be possible for most mammals without the feet!

Pisces is represented by two fishes swimming in opposite directions which speaks to the go-with-the-flow attitude that many Pisceans possess. Pisces is the last water sign of the zodiac, completing the metaphorical astrological journey from baby (Aries) to a spiritually evolved being (Pisces). Pisces is one of the four mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius), which means that it is flexible and able to transform in different situations. But Pisces is the most mutable out of the other 4 signs. If Pisces had a superhero power, it would be to shape shift. They are able to embody character traits of all twelve signs which can be extremely useful or get them into trouble. Pisceans are very susceptible to other people’s energy and like the other two water signs, Cancer and Scorpio, are very intuitive/borderline psychic. There is great power and danger in this quality because they can be prone to go along with the crowd, against their better judgement. This is why it’s important for Pisces to surround themselves with more evolved spirits who will encourage them to become the powerful empaths they were born to be. I highly recommend that Pisces stay away from hard-core drugs and limit alcohol intake. This sign’s modern ruler is Neptune, planet of disillusionment (ancient ruler is Jupiter), and many Pisceans live on the edge of reality and fantasy. It’s better for them to use their Neptunian qualities to channel their creativity into something that will change history. Pisceans have brilliant minds. They have an imagination like no other and when coupled with hard work they can achieve the unthinkable…literally. Steve Jobs and Albert Einstein were both Pisces…enough said. They are dreamers and optimist, much like Sagittarians, unless they have aspects in their natal chart that prove otherwise. Pisceans make great writers, photographers, singers, dancers, artists, any position that involves creativity and using the right brain. Many of them don’t do well in traditional 9-5 desk jobs. But with Steve Job’s like potential, I’d rather them be somewhere else innovating so that humanity can benefit!

PISCES IN LOVE

Pisces is one of the most romantic and thoughtful signs in the zodiac. Because they are so intuitive they are able to pinpoint their partner’s wants and needs and cater to them. This is the sign that will write you a poem or serenade you with a song they wrote while thinking of you. Think old world romance. Pisceans can get lost in a dream world of a love story they created in their head which may be far from reality. They can be prone to stay in relationships that are not good for them longer than they should. They usually see the best in people, even if that person doesn’t deserve it. On the opposite end of the spectrum is the Pisces that never seems to settle down. Much like fellow mutable sign, Gemini, they admire diversity and can be swept off their feet by numerous lovers. Pisces has their own concept of time so they can be smitten by one person one week and the next week meet someone who is the new “love of their life.” They live in the moment and follow their heart. It takes a certain type of partner to be able to deal with this level of impulsiveness. Not all Pisces are wanderlusts, especially if they have more grounded aspects in their natal chart, but most appreciate spontaneity, adventure and romance. I don’t recommend keeping secrets from a Pisces, this is probably the most psychic sign in the zodiac and they have the ability to pick up on what you are thinking and feeling without you saying a word. They also have vivid dreams and information will come to them while they sleep. Because their element is water and they are mutable they can be “wishy washy,” acting one way towards you one day and completely different another day. This may be hard for a more practical sign to understand. If you’re looking for a sense of adventure, passion, and mysticism, Pisces is the sign you should go after. It will be a roller coaster of ever-lasting love. At least for the moment being.
