About Your Sign

What is a Zodiac Sign?

Your zodiac (astrology) sign is a reflection of where the sun, moon, and other planets were positioned the moment you were born. Depending on these positions, they place each sign to a specific part of the calendar year. Over time, each sign has developed its own belonging to myths, animals, and colors. Also, each horoscope sign has associated itself to one of the four elements, which are: Air, Water, Earth, and Fire. There are 12 zodiac signs, and each one possesses its own traits unique to one another; and boast an approach to life different than others. No single sign can be perfect on its own, so each one goes hand-and-hand completing the astrological wheel; together, combining the perfect traits. 

 Below, lists every zodiac sign and what makes each one unique to one another, in order by the calendar year. 

 Aquarius

(January 20 - February 18, Air sign) 

Aquarians are big thinkers. They despise authority and attempt to change the society around them with their somewhat "radical" voice. They want to make the world a better place and are always looking to help others. They are independent, open-minded and love being surrounded by others. One of their greatest strengths is that they do not let stress get in the way of their mission, they make difficult situations look easy. Due to this, many people look up to Aquarians. Although Aquarians love to surround themselves with others, they are hesitant to become close with anyone; but once you gain their trust, they will bend over backwards for you whenever you are in need. 

Pisces

(February 19 - March 20, Water sign)

Pisces are very kind, and find themselves with different types of people all the time. They are selfless, intelligent, and are close to psychic. Pisces have strong "gut feelings," often being able to tell whether or not a person or situation is good or bad. They are sensitive, and are always trying to make everyone happy, so they are always forgiving even if they know they are not "in the wrong." Because of how out-going they are, they are seen as one of the most tolerant out of all the signs. However, if you were to hurt a Pisces, it may be difficult to earn back their trust.

Aries

(March 21 - April 19, Fire sign)

Aries are one of the most energetic out of the signs. They are always looking for something to do and often are completing multiple projects at once. They are great at multi-tasking and have a drive for competition. All you have to do to motivate an Aries is to make whatever you are doing into a contest. They will do anything they can to be number one in an attempt to make sure they are living their "perfect life." Aries are very blunt with their feelings, and will always speak of what is one their mind. Even if it may seem a little rude, they value honesty over all else. 

Taurus

(April 20 - May 20, Earth sign)

Just like Aries, Taurus values honesty above all else. They are trustworthy, smart, and responsible. They make amazing friends, partners, and are just a great group of people to be around. They have a strong point of view and can be seen as stubborn, but don't let that mistake you. Even with strong opinions, they are open minded and willing to hear other point of views. They are not easily distracted, but focused on whatever project is at hand. Taurus are not afraid to roll up their sleeves and get to work. They are seen as one of the most stable out of the zodiac signs and find it easy to make money. Taurus are able to look at things from a realistic viewpoint, and find it easier to make a name for themselves in this big world. 

Gemini

(May 21 - June 20, Air sign)

Optimistic, energetic, and smart, these are all traits that help make Gemini one of the most emotionally intelligent zodiac signs. There are two sides to a Gemini, one who is ready to explore and have fun, but can suddenly get serious and ready to work. A Gemini is naturally curious, feeling as if they do not know enough about a subject, or they do not know enough about a person. A Gemini will most likely seek opinions from their peers when faced with a difficult situation. They tend to think hard before they act, ensuring that they are making the right decision. Once you gain a Gemini's trust, you have them for life. A Gemini will truly do anything in their power to make sure that someone they love is happy. 

Cancer

(June 21 - July 22, Water sign)

A Cancer can be one of the most challenging zodiac signs to get to know. They are very emotional, sentimental, and can seem "stand-offish"  when first met. But don't let that fool you, once a Cancer likes you, they would go to the ends of the world just to let you know that they have your back. A Cancer hates small talk, you will most likely see a Cancer in a group of people where everyone is close with one another rather than seeing them in a large group full of strangers. They are sensitive and care deeply of those they care about. Even though a Cancer may be difficult to understand, once you show them that you care about them as much as they care about you, you will have a friend for life. 

Leo

(July 23 - August 22, Fire sign)

A natural born leader with a great sense of humor, a Leo can be hard to resist. A Leo naturally has a high self-esteem and great confidence, representing what a leader should be. Even with these bold traits, they are also warm, passionate, and generous. A Leo is first to take initiative toward a problem, and can easily take down such problems with their mind. With a strong sense of self-confidence, they are looking to do whatever it takes to build their ego. To others, they may seem selfish and arrogant, as someone who only looks for personal gain. This may be true without a Leo realizing it. But deep down, a Leo hopes for all of their peers to be successful and wants everyone to prosper. 

Virgo

(August 23 - September 22, Earth sign)

A Virgo is often misunderstood, and this is not a bad thing. A Virgo is not one to spill their feelings and emotions to just anyone, you really have to gain their trust. They live a very structured and organized life, with very set goals and expectations of themselves. They are great communicators and make great friends. A Virgo is always there for you when you need a hand and they are known for giving the best advice. A Virgo may seem as someone who is shy and "all work and no play," but that is only because they will not tear down their inner walls for just anyone. They are hesitant to tell strangers about themselves and will work very hard to make sure that their life is structured to how they seem fit. Like I said earlier, once you gain the trust of a Virgo, you will have one of the most loyal friends you have ever met. 

 Libra

(September 23 - October 22, Air sign)

A Libra is someone who is very social, arguably the most social of all zodiac signs. They hate being alone, and do their best to surround themselves around big groups. Possibly their greatest gift is their imagination and big dreams. Some may think that they are "day dreamers" and their dreams are "outlandish," but that is exactly what drives a Libra. They are great at resolving conflicts between others and do their best to keep peace. However, a Libra will do anything they can to avoid conflict and confrontations, which in some cases may lead to a grudge being held. All in all, a Libra adores a life filled with beauty, and will do anything to make sure that everyone around them is full of happiness. 

Scorpio

(October 23 - November 21, Water sign)

Scorpio-born are passionate, brave, and independent. A Scorpio is known as a great leader and very assertive. They are not afraid to voice their own opinion, even if it does not favor the opinion of others. They may come off as intimidating, but a Scorpio does mean well, they are just secretive. A Scorpio loves debates and won't back down from their point of view. They love people who are authentic and up-front, and dislike people who are "fake" or "two-faced." They are very dedicated to their craft and will do their own research to discover the truth when suspicious of anything. As a Scorpio may come off as stubborn, they really are true friends. 

Sagittarius

(November 22 - December 21, Fire sign)

Sagittarius are one of the most curious and adventurous of all the signs. They are not afraid to branch off from the pack and do their own thing. Sagittarius loves exploring and find a love for traveling. They are natural-born leaders and will say exactly what is on their mind, they are all about the truth. They may be looked upon as rude at times, but Sagittarius values honesty over feelings. As strong-willed and truthful as they are, Sagittarius are truly generous and don't mean any harm to anyone. With their strong curiosity, they have developed a great sense of humor. In conclusion, a Sagittarius will always light up the room making you laugh and taking you on adventures. 

Capricorn

(December 22 - January 19, Earth sign) 

When you think of a Capricorn, you should think of someone who is very disciplined, smart, and hard working. They will get almost anything they want, simply through determination and a drive to be the best. Capricorn loves organization and a set of rules in place wherever they work. The concept of "winging it" simply is not in a Capricorn's vocabulary. They feel out of place as soon as there isn't any rules or steps in place, even in their everyday lives. They feel as if they need a set routine in place and that they need to be the one in charge. With expertise and experience, Capricorn-born usually excel at climbing the corporate ladder and becoming great leaders. They may come off as stubborn, but only due to the fact that they love being organized.
