Zodiac Signs

What they Are and What They Mean

Zodiac Signs

Pisces, Leo, Capricorn, and so on. While many people might read these words and instantly identify these as the famous zodiac signs, others might be a bit lost when it comes to the wonderful world of horoscopes. If you have ever found yourself in a situation where someone asks “what’s your Zodiac Sign” and you feel completely clueless as to what those words even mean, you’ve got nothing to worry about. I’ll be your guide to all things astrology.

To explain what your Zodiac sign is and what it means I should begin by clarifying what a zodiac sign is. Astrology is the study of life and humans through celestial objects (Things like the stars, sun, planets, etc.). Astrologists believe that someone’s sign reveals things about each person because of how the stars were aligned at the time of your birth. What they reveal can range from your strengths and weaknesses to how you express yourself in different situations and how situations are likely to unfold for you.

Figuring out what your zodiac sign is, is way easier than what you’re probably imagining. You can think of these zodiacs as months in a year. There are 12 zodiacs just like the 12 months and to figure out what your zodiac sign is just look at the day and month you were born and correlate that to the zodiac calendar. Now if you want to get all technical and smart you can also look for your rising or moon sign that basically just get a deeper understanding of your personality and how you react to different things. But I wouldn’t recommend getting into all of that just yet. The first step is finding out what your sign is.

  1. Aquarius-                                                                                                                                                                                          If you were born from January 20th – February 18 you are an Aquarius. Known for being either shy and quiet or wild and energetic there is one thing no one can deny about Aquarius signs which are they are independent and original thinkers with an optimistic and futuristic view of the world. Like all signs, Aquarius has strengths which include their generosity and willingness to help the world around them. But like all signs, they have some weaknesses and in Aquarius’ case, they are known to be very opinionated extremists.
  2. Pisces-                                                                                                                                                                                               If you were born from February 19- March 20th congratulations you are a Pisces. Known for their big-hearted and compassionate personality Pisces’ are actually known to be most in touch with their spirituality than any other sign. Even though they have a great artistic and intuitive nature Pisces usually have a tendency to be too sensitive and even delusional.
  3. Aries-                                                                                                                                                                                                 If born sometime between March 21- April 19 you are considered an Aries and that is not at all bad. If I were to use one word to describe Aries I would use headstrong or maybe a fire. Aries is definitely recognized as being adventurous, wild, dynamic, and of course competitive. With all this strong-willed attitude it is usually recognized that an Aries might be a bit impulsive or blunt at times.
  4. Taurus-                                                                                                                                                                                             For anyone born from April 20- May 20 enjoy being a Taurus. People born under this sign are usually seen as dependable, dedicated, and focused. Taurus are known to go for challenges, never seeking the easy way out yet they still know how to relax and enjoy life. Though sometimes Tauruses are known as huge perfectionist signs and people known to be very set in their ideals.                                                                                                                             
  5. Gemini-                                                                                                                                                                                             Anyone born from May 21 – June 20 is considered to be the expressive and intelligent Gemini. Also seen to have an outgoing personality, Geminis are constantly seen trying various new activities. These “social butterflies” are known to be fun playful people but are also notorious for being two-faced at times.
  6. Cancer-                                                                                                                                                                                              If anyone is confused anyone born from June 21- July 22 is considered to be the sign of Cancer and no, that does not mean you’re more likely to have the illness. Cancers actually make great friends due to their loyal and protective personality along with being intuitive as well. Though as to bad traits Cancers are notorious for being moody and vindictive at times.
  7. Leo-                                                                                                                                                                                                    If you were born from July 23 – August 22 you are considered a Leo. Tending to be warm, passionate, brave people. Leos are known for their charismatic and sunny personality.  People usually see them as the opposite of a Scorpio, A Scorpio looking at the hazier side of life, unlike A Leo who usually enjoys looking at the sunny and fun parts of life. Even though Leos are great people they are often seen as being possessive and even control from time to time.
  8. Virgo-                                                                                                                                                                                                People born from August 23 – September 22 are considered to be the logical and strategic sign known as Virgo. Seen as approaching life in a symmetrical and practical way. Known to be a perfectionist at heart Virgos are never scared of putting in the work through consistent practice. While Virgos are incredibly strong and intellectual signs they are often very self-critical and put a lot of pressure on themselves.
  9. Libra-                                                                                                                                                                                                From September 23 – October 22 the represented sign is considered to be libra. Libras are widely known for being well-balanced in life, They enjoy having a balance in their life and even strive to keep this balance at all times. Along with their sensible traits, Libras are also known for their generous attitudes and are seen by the other signs as great peacemakers among others. While it’s hard to believe Libras can have a bad side, they are notorious for being having abnormal self-pity and trying to escape conflicts at times.                 
  10. Scorpio-                                                                                                                                       Anyone born between October 23- November 21 congrats you’re considered the stunning Scorpio. Being one of the most understood signs, Scorpios are believed to be fire signs due to their strong and powerful personalities. In actuality, Scorpios are water signs. Scorpios are emotional signs with leadership running in their blood. A Scorpio’s intensity can be at much at times and can be aggressive and a bit too jealous of others at times.
  11. Sagittarius-                                                                                                                                    If you were born from November 22 – December 21 you are considered a Sagittarius.

Capricorns love making their own rules and being in command which allows them to strive for high career positions. Along with trying to always put in the effort, Capricorns are iconically recognized as the ‘responsible friend.” While their strong will to achieve their goals sometimes causes them to hide their emotions if they get in the way and are also notorious for having a rough time when it comes to forgiving.
