Taurus Sign Dates: approximately April 21 – May 22

About The Taurus Sign

The Taurus sign is the fixed Earth sign. It is slow, steady, and mostly easygoing. They say that “slow and steady wins the race,” and Taurus proves this to be true. Taurus loves to build things, and has the determination and will-power to carry out long projects.

With Venus as its ruler, Taurus is a hopeless romantic. Taurus truly appreciates the physical beauty of the world and physical comfort. It is genuinely impressed by beautiful appearances. Taurus focuses its attention and hard work on attaining the finer things in life.

Its purposeful determination and power is used to achieve security. Taurus is a practical sign, and will not make a move unless it is assured that the person, situation, or relationship will be of use. It is sensual, perceiving through the physical senses, mostly touch. But the need for security extends to emotional security. Taurus’s need for inner security results in a possessiveness that borders on absurdity. It regards another person’s affection as it’s own property. Like a bull, Taurus plods along, dull, apathetic, and slow to anger, but once provoked, it can be cruel and malicious. Taurus is methodical and resistant to change.

Planets in Taurus will be colored by the qualities of: possessiveness, retentiveness, and steadiness

Keywords: versatile, adaptable, nonconformist, inquisitive, curious, quick-witted, communication, networking, congenial, tactful, mentality, thinking, writing, speaking, literacy, speech, intellectual

Gemini Sign Dates: approximately May 21 – June 22

About The Gemini Sign

The Gemini sign is mutable air, flitting about from place to place. Gemini has expert speaking and writing skills, able to charm the uncharmable. It captures its environment, responds immediately, and moves to a new environment. Gemini is the sign of networking and communications, gathering bits of information here and there and spreading them to others who can benefit from them.

The Gemini sign is known for its restlessness. Because of their restlessness and buzzing activity, Geminis need periods of down time. Gemini people need alone time to recharge their batteries (although Gemini does not like to be alone).

Gemini is an air sign. Emotionally detached, this is a thinking sign. The dichotomy here is that, while Gemini is ruled by Mercury, possessing genius mental powers, its energy is scattered and dispersed. The result is that “success” by society’s standards is not easily achieved. It is not focused and directed at one goal; rather it craves variety, change, and novelty. Success with Gemini can happen if the energy is somehow focused.

The Gemini sign gets bored easier than any other zodiac signs. Gemini changes and adapts to the new in the blink of an eye, leaving others wondering what happened to the “other.&quot. Maybe the symbolism of the twins originated because Gemini types change so often as to make others guess that the new personality must be someone else…a twin, perhaps.

Planets in Gemini will be colored by the qualities of: changeable curiosity, talkativeness, and friendliness

Downside: touchiness, timidity, clannishness, restlessness, indolence, overemotional, over-sentimental

Cancer Sign Dates: approximately June 21 – July 22

About The Cancer Sign

The Cancer sign is cardinal water. As such, it is something of a contradiction. As a cardinal zodiac sign, Cancer is assertive, a self-starter, and a “go-getter.” These qualities are good for business. As water, Cancer is intuitive, feeling, and nurturing. These qualities are traditionally good for being a homemaker, among other things.

Intuitive abilities also make Cancer good for business, since it can feel out good and bad situations. But, above all, Cancer is led by its emotions. The Cancer sign is highly attached to the emotional roots of the past, and it is very sensitive. Cancer’s main purpose is to build a family and acquire domestic security. It is family-oriented, and will fight to protect its own. When hurt or threatened, its immediate response is to protect itself by retreating into its shell, motivated by a need to protect its inner sensitivity. Although, it will lash out to protect family. It can also be mean and moody. Generally, Cancer is caring, nurturing, and motherly.

A planet in Cancer will be colored by the qualities of: feeling, reserve, moods (moodiness), sensitivity, and self-protection

About Leo Zodiac Sign

The Leo sign is the fixed one of the fire signs. It is forceful, magnetic, generous, and impulsive. It has a strong and ardent love nature. Leo is moved through the heart rather than through reason.

The main need for the Leo sign is to develop a genuine sense of self, present it to the world, and take pride in the expression of its creative accomplishment. The Leo sign has a never-ending source of creative energy because the Sun rules the sign of Leo. Leo focuses on the healthy expression of individual self-discovery.

About The Libra Sign

The Libra sign is cardinal air. It is intuitive, perceptive (ability to see both sides of any situation), impartial, just, fair, harmonious, amiable and diplomatic. Libra is always comparing and reasoning. Because of this, Libra seeks a balanced exchange in one-on-one partnerships and marriage, and seeks harmony in groups.

Thanks to its ruling planet, Venus, Libra has finesse. Libra uses diplomacy and tact to make social efforts effective. It is motivated by a need to see justice done. Libra will negotiate for fairness with regard to every group represented within a community. Ruled by Venus, Libra has artistic talents, loves music, singing and dancing, and has a strong capacity for partnership. Libra is in love with love, and loves to be in a relationship.

Being gifted with the ability to see both sides of any situation, and the endless weighing of options makes Libra changeable, moody and somewhat fickle. It’s inclined to build castles in the air. Libra is light and suave, but also easily disturbed like the balance. Libra avoids disturbing the peace, and will be dishonest rather than ruffle someone’s feathers. Libra does not like to create waves or add flame to a fire.

About The Scorpio Sign

The Scorpio sign is fixed water. It is a potent, powerful sign, characterized by an ardent love nature, tremendous staying power, intense emotions, compulsive desires, secrecy, and stinging revenge. Scorpio is extremely loyal with loved ones, but when hurt, it becomes self-centered ever ready with stinging sarcasm. Scorpio is industrious, strong willed, and self-assertive, while silent, subtle, tricky, and surprisingly heroic in danger. Scorpio is a good detective, focusing on working out the hidden issues that arise from partnerships. It must learn to feel emotions without restraining them, and without going to extremes. Restraining emotions causes blockages that lead to compulsive behaviors. Scorpio is associated with the secret forces of nature, sex, healing power, military affairs, surgery, and magic.

Pisces Sign Dates: approximately February 18 – March 21

About The Pisces Sign

The Pisces sign is mutable water. It is characterized by sensitiveness to super-physical (supernatural) influences, a sense of unity with all life, mysticism, ripe destiny, and sacrifice. Pisces is mediumistic, sympathetic, gentle, negative, shy, timid, loyal and dependent.  It is extremely sensitive to its surroundings, and to the thoughts and feelings of others. Pisces unconsciously absorbs its surroundings.

Pisces blends into its environment much like a chameleon does. The benefit is the ability to fit in anywhere, but the downside is that Pisces disappears in the process. It is confiding, trustful, and easily led. Pisces serves and sacrifices itself others. At the same time, one cannot hold or grasp Pisces.

Pisces is fond of sensation and inclined to drift. It is a lover of peace, ease and security. Pisces habitually lives in its feelings, not protecting them like them Cancer or Scorpio, but actually living in the feeling world, as if the intangible were tangible. For Pisces, the intangible is tangible. For sensitive Pisces, feelings are as real as any material substance; the spiritual world is as real as the physical.

Pisces has extra-sensory perception, and is attuned to a higher dimension (that the rest of us who lack that vision call “imagination”). Having VIP access into the intangible world of imagination, Pisces possesses artistic, musical, and poetic qualities. On the negative side, Pisces might escape into that world, never to return.

Planets in the Pisces sign will be colored by the qualities of: soul yearnings, idealism, oneness, inspiration, and vulnerability
