12 Zodiac Signs Explained
Throughout history, zodiac signs have always been a large part of our society. It’s believed that there are four elements that represent the 12 signs of the Zodiac – fire, earth, water, and air. In this article, we’ll discuss the 12 zodiac signs explained, including their characteristics and personalities.
Aries: March 21 to April 19
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and it’s no wonder why. Aries individuals are generally considered to be passionate and energetic. They’re constantly on the go and ready to tackle their next adventure or project.
A quick glance at Aries’ personality shows that they’re always up for a challenge—they love new experiences and want to find out what makes them tick. They’re also known for being stubborn at times. When faced with any sort of conflict or disagreement with others in their lives, they will stand firm in their beliefs (unless you have something very convincing up your sleeve).
Taurus: April 20 to May 20
Taurus is the second astrological sign in the zodiac, which spans the period between 20 April and 20 May. This is an Earth sign that corresponds to the season of spring (or spring equinox, if you’re into astronomy).
The traits associated with this sign are stubbornness and materialism, as well as loyalty and sensuality. While they can be slow to start things or make decisions, they’re also very responsible when they do take action. You might have a hard time getting them to move on from one project because they’re so invested in it! But don’t worry—once they do start something new, it’ll be done right and done well!
Gemini: May 21 to June 20
Gemini, the third sign of the zodiac, is represented by twins. The characteristics of a Gemini are quick wits and a love of communication. They’re lively conversationalists who can easily draw people into their world with words—just look at all the times you’ve been charmed into talking about yourself without even realizing it! With their curiosity about everything that’s going on around them, Geminis make excellent journalists or writers.
Cancer: June 21 to July 22
Cancer is represented by the crab, which is a creature known for its protective nature. Cancerians are very loyal and protective, making them wonderful friends and partners. They have a tendency to be moody and sensitive, but this can often be seen as an endearing quality. Cancerians are also ruled by the Moon and tend to be very family-oriented.
Leo: July 23 to Aug. 22
Leos are a fire sign, cardinal in nature (meaning it’s very active), masculine, and an element of fire. They’re known for being confident and having big personalities! They’re often leaders in their community or workplace who know how to get things done—but they do have a tendency to be bossy at times.
Leos also love attention so they often go out of their way to make sure everyone knows what they think about something or someone else. This can cause them to come across as arrogant but don’t let that turn you off from getting close with one because they’re loyal friends once you earn their trust!
Virgo: Aug. 23 to Sept. 22
Virgos are known for their perfectionism, attention to detail, and work ethic. They’re also known for their intelligence, which makes them great at solving problems or coming up with solutions. They tend to be honest people who have strong morals and values. They usually have a lot of friends around them because of these traits as well!
People born under this sign are generally good listeners. They like to hear what others have to say before forming an opinion themselves (something that can come in handy when trying to solve someone else’s problem).
Libra: Sept. 23 to Oct. 22
If you were born between September 23rd and October 22nd, you are a Libra. The sign of the scales is associated with beauty, art, and balance. Libras are known to be the peacemakers in relationships, as well as being fair and just.
Unlike their counterparts in other signs, they’re more inclined to make compromises in order to achieve peace and harmony within their lives. They tend to put others first while focusing on personal needs last, especially when they really care about someone.
Scorpio: Oct. 23 to Nov. 21
The Scorpio zodiac sign is ruled by Mars, the planet of war. This is a passionate, driven, and intense sign, and is the eighth sign of the zodiac. Those born under this sign are said to have been born between October 23rd and November 22nd.
Those born under this sign are said to be extremely determined, resourceful, and independent people who are willing to go to great lengths for what they believe in. They also have a tendency to be jealous and possessive in relationships but can also be very loyal once they find someone worthy of their love.
Sagittarius: Nov. 22 to Dec. 21
Sagittarius is the ninth sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation of Sagittarius. It’s a fire sign that represents freedom, optimism, and adventure. Those born under this sign are said to be optimistic, noble-minded, and adventurous.
According to astrology, people with Sagittarius as their sun sign tend to be enthusiastic about life and optimistic outlook on things. They may also be somewhat idealistic and philosophical at times, but they’re not afraid or ashamed of showing how much they care about something or someone else. If you’re lucky enough to have them as friends, then you’ll know just how loyal they can be!
Capricorn: Dec. 22 to Jan. 19
Capricorn is the tenth sign of the zodiac, which means it’s a bit more self-centered than you might be used to with your fellow Capricorns. They can be prone to moodiness and anxiety, but they also have a strong sense of duty and responsibility. They have a long list of things they want to get done by the end of the day (which is why you might find them up at 2 am, working on something).
While Capricorns may not be known for their warmth in social situations or emotional intelligence (they’re ruled by Saturn after all), they do know how to get people where they need to go when it comes time for work or play. They’re known for being ambitious and persistent when pursuing goals that matter most.
Aquarius: Jan. 20 to Feb. 18
Aquarius is the eleventh sign of the zodiac, and it’s represented by a person pouring water from an urn. Aquarians are known for being independent thinkers, who can also be eccentric and detached.
They’re also known for having strong opinions about politics and current events, as well as being passionate about social causes. They tend to be uninterested in small talk, but love discussing big ideas with others who share their passions. The element associated with Aquarius is air. Their personality traits include intelligence, creativity, and originality (or “quirkiness”).
Pisces Feb. 19 to March 20
Pisces is the twelfth astrological sign in the zodiac. It’s represented by two fish swimming in opposite directions, and it’s usually represented by a figure with two fish tails.
They’re known for being sensitive and compassionate creatures who like to take care of others before themselves. They’re also very creative people who can be imaginative in their day-to-day lives as well as when it comes to problem-solving or thinking outside of the box. However, they do have their flaws—the most notable one being that they tend to overthink things and worry about things that aren’t worth worrying about at all!
