We’re to produce a set of 12 horoscope illustrations intended for a women’s magazine. First thing to do it to do some research into this stuff, which shouldn’t be too difficult. http://www.zodiac-signs-meanings.com/ STAR SIGNS EXPLAINED! http://www.psychicguild.com/horoscopes_explained.php There is about to be a LOT of writing. Aries Your element: Fire Your ruling planets: Mars Symbol: The Ram Your stone: Ruby Life Pursuit: The thrill of the moment Vibration: Enthusiastic Aries Secret Desire: To lead the way for others.
Description: Aries are fire signs and those born under this element are regarded in astrology as adventurous, active and outgoing. It won't matter where you go or how remote or unusual it is - from the Outback to the Antarctic you can be sure that an Aries has been there before you (or at the very least you will meet one along the way!) Aries is a uniquely naive sign. Although they are independent, outgoing and assertive they are also surprisingly trusting, often innocently walking into the lion's den at times. No matter what upheaval, challenge or triumph they confront - an Aries has a wonderful ability to bounce back. Their faith in life and the future remains untouched by hardship. Their gift is that they are always children at heart and the world is always a magical place for them. Many famous sports people are born under this sign. Aries is regarded as the most physical sign and because of its Mar's rulership; it is also one of the most highly charged masculine energy signs in astrology. No wonder women born under Aries are forceful, dynamic and aggressive, and as a result these Aries women frequently find themselves with dilemmas surrounding their romantic relationships. For them, a man has to be a 'real man' to deal with an Aries woman, otherwise she intimidates him. And conversely for the Aries male, a woman has to be a real woman to deal with him, because he is looking for many balancing component traits (his true feminine side) in his partner. She has to run the gamut in his support system, from the Aries man's best friend, true companion, through to his muse, and yet she must never ever answer him back! Therefore Aries can be a confusing sign because there is a complex combination of very strong masculine and feminine expressions all combined together. Because of the male energy surrounding it, when a woman is born under Aries, it creates some of the most interesting women in the world, women who are adventurous, independent and have competitive natures. It also tends to make them very forthright. But whether male or female, Aries people are 'doers' rather than 'talkers'. They are the impulsive, act first, ask questions or have doubts later, sign of the zodiac. That's why their lives are often filled with many dramas and sometimes even accidents! Their ability to live life close to the edge provides them with a wealth of 'real experience' to call upon. When an Aries person talks about something or somewhere they've usually done it or been there, rather than simply read about it in a book. Being active people Aries can't adapt to any kind of restriction, particularly possessive relationships. They often travel to escape any feelings of being stuck or possessed. Aries people love challenges. In fact, if everything is running smoothly, they are quite capable of going out and doing something (sometimes quite foolish) to rock the boat. Aries love to race in where angels fear to tread.
Taurus Your element: Earth Your ruling planets: Venus Symbol: The Bull Your stone: Emerald Life Pursuit: Emotional and financial security Vibration: Determined energy Taurus Secret Desire: To have a secure, happy and wealthy life/marriage.
Description: Underneath their cool, calm and collected exterior, Taureans differ greatly from all the other signs of the zodiac. Taureans manage to discreetly stay apart from the crowd, even though they have a well-earned reputation for being socialisers. They will let others get close, but only so close as they want them. Some claim that trying to get your point across to a Taurean, should they not want to hear you, is rather similar to talking to the trees – they simply won't budge. And, there is no such thing as an open-book Taurean. Their feelings, fears and desires often run far deeper than anyone around them would guess. Like the butterfly that chooses to remain hidden in its cocoon until it is ready and prepared to emerge, so the true Taurean spirit remains hidden behind a veneer of day-to-day activities. That's why Taureans are sometimes regarded as snobby, withdrawn, boring, or even sulky. The truth is, when Taureans manage to operate very adequately on their own form of automatic pilot, they can switch off from the world around them very efficiently. And when they do switch off, they are actually gathering in their inner reserves to deal with the outside pressures. This sign is also very closely connected to 'feeling good'. Most Taureans like their creature comforts and hate change because it takes them out of their automatic pilot condition of separating themselves from the world around them. Because they hate to be put in jeopardy of any kind, this is the sign that strives to create tomorrow in advance, rather than leave it to fate. In love, Taureans are regarded as extremely sensual beings. An earth sign, they deal well with the personal, physical senses and consequently all the pleasures associated with what they can see, touch, smell and taste, add up to a special delight to them. Often nature and pet lovers, Taureans are closely associated with all things off the earth and nature.
Gemini Your element: Air Your ruling planets: Mercury Symbol: The Twins Your stone: Aquamarine Life Pursuit: To explore a little bit of everything. Vibration: Intense mental energy Gemini's Secret Desire: To be ahead of the crowd
Description: In ancient Greek mythology, Gemini's ruler - Mercury, was the light-footed messenger of the gods who darted back and forth across the heavens delivering news - which might explain why those born under the sign of the 'Twins' are always on the move; thirsty for knowledge and new experiences. Terminally curious and sometimes even mischievous, Geminis are multi-faceted souls who enjoy knowing a little bit of
everything but generally not too much about one particular subject. It's just that variety is the spice of their lives! In Astrology, Geminis have also gained the reputation of being the incessant talkers of the zodiac. Those Twins that don't have the 'gift of the gab' are usually talented writers or have a special interest in foreign languages. In love, they look for a partner who can keep up with them mentally and physically! And, to quote Oscar Wilde, "there's one thing worse than people talking about you, that's people not talking about you." Whether Geminis like it or not, people are usually "talking about them". Together with Scorpio and Virgos, they are a sign that is often discussed, dissected and sometimes even put down by the other signs of the zodiac. Sometimes this is a subtle form of jealousy by others, because Geminis do lead very unique and unusual lives. The Gemini personality can appear mysterious or detached to others and therefore they are often misunderstood and unappreciated for the talents they offer to the world at large. Another reason Geminis evoke so much interest is many born under this sign are multi-dimensionally talented. In money matters, some Geminis are very adept and quick at making it...and spending it too. Many Geminis are involved in international financial wheeling and dealing. They love the adventure and game playing involved in out-thinking other people. Gemini's can be very haphazard about their financial affairs too, with many of them ending up in divorce courts mainly because their partners have become tired of living on the edge of a financial precipice. Cancer Your element: Water Your ruling planets: The Moon Symbol: The Crab Your stone: Moonstone Life Pursuit: Constant reassurance and intimacy Vibration: Moody Cancer's Secret Desire: To feel safe (emotionally, spiritually, romantically and financially)
Description: Those born under the sign of Cancer, ruled by the mysterious Moon, are one of the zodiac's enigmas. It is fair to say that most Cancers are a bundle of contradictions. Compassionate and caring with friends, family and lovers, yet they can cut to the bone with their jealous remarks and ever-changing moods. Endearingly eccentric on one hand, and on the other, insecure about how others see them. Like their astrological symbol the Crab - Cancers can appear hard and insensitive on the outside. However, for those of us who know and love a "Moon Child", we understand that deep below lies a softness and sensitivity that makes them so very special... Just as the Moon goes through many changes as it moves from its new to full phases, Cancers too go through many new and full phases of experience. Life doesn't stand still for this sign, even if they remain in one place, because they live so much in their internal oceans of emotions. Their link with the Moon often makes it impossible for them to operate on an even keel from day to day. Up and down like the proverbial yo-yo, most Cancerians feel one way one minute, then sometimes totally different the next. But this characteristic is part of their charm. Love and romance matter more than anything else to this sign (but this occasionally shares first place with having lots of money in the bank). No other sign romances better, equally though, no sign takes it so badly when romance turns sour either. But with their changeable natures Cancerians are fascinating, mysterious, stimulating and extremely alluring. This sign is one of the most magic of all and once their magic has reached you, they are the most beguiling companions. After all, isn't the Moon the most talked about and romantic galactic identity?
Your element: Fire Your ruling planets: The Sun Symbol: The Lion Your stone: Peridot Life Pursuit: To lead the way Vibration: Radiant Energy Leo's Secret Desire: To be a star
Description: Love triumphs over all for this sign, which is ruled by the heart and operates from this dimension too. Leo's are born fortunate. Charismatic and positive-thinking they attract not only an abundance of friends and opportunities, but manage to survive life's stormy times with style and good humour. Once a Lion is committed to a relationship, they are totally devoted and faithful. Should their heart or trust be broken they never forgive or forget. When a relationship breaks down (even a long standing one) they can disappear into the sunset without a backward look. Leos can cut ties, and leave others heartbroken, but usually there is a good reason why they have broken a tryst. For a Leo, when a relationship is over, really over, it is over for good. There are three levels of soul-evolution of the Leos. The highest is represented by the Sphinx; wise beyond their years and great teachers to others. The second is the Lion, King of the Jungle, ruled by ego but always protective and sustaining of those they love. The last is the Lion Cub, immature and undeveloped, frightened by anything new. These Leos cling to others (in the mode of the child not wanting to leave its mother's side).) They can't bear to be alone. No matter what level they have attained, all Leos are trendsetters, leaders and adventurers. Their weakness is their pride. This is one sign where the saying "flattery will get you everything" applies, but be warned criticism will slam the relationship door right in your face.
Virgo Your element: Earth Your ruling planets: Mercury Symbol: The Virgin Your stone: Sapphire Life Pursuit: To do the right thing Vibration: Compassionate and caring Virgo's Secret Desire: To love and be loved in return
Description: Virgos are often put down badly by many astrologers and written up as being fussy and narrow-minded. But when a Virgo shines, there is practically no sign to match their inner light. An in-tune Virgo is a treat to meet. When a Virgo is confident within themselves they are the most successful, structured and creative of all the signs. Many Virgos can be found working in the "service to others" industries, ranging from welfare work, doctors, school-teachers through to practising natural forms of healing like massage, herbal remedies etc. One of the most magical characteristics of the Virgo is no matter how many times life or romance turns sour on them, they still manage to maintain faith in others, refusing to become cynical. There is ingenuity around this sign, a kind-heartedness, which unfortunately is sometimes played upon by others for their advantage. Virgos can often become victims of relationship power-games, where they are mistreated.
Creative and sensitive, Virgos are delicate people who, like rare and special orchids, require individual treatment to fully blossom into their true unique beauty. Shy, they are happy to allow others to take centrestage and often generate their time and energy into making those they love happy or successful. Virgos are givers and when the chips are down and you need a friend, the one available during those testing times when you need advice or companionship the most, is likely to be a Virgo. Virgos understand human frailties better than most, because they are so deep and reflective themselves. With a Virgo in your life you have someone who understands and cares and any romance or friendship based upon these qualities is certain to be mutually rewarding. Libra Your element: Air Your ruling planets: Venus Symbol: The Scales Your stone: Opals Life Pursuit: To be consistent Vibration: Unsteady Libran's Secret Desire: To live an easy, uncomplicated life.
Description: Every adolescent Libran's fantasy is to find the Prince or Princess of their dreams. As their lives unfold, the experiences, false starts, dramas, broken hearts and disillusionment they encounter seeking this personal Holy Grail, often shapes their futures in the most extra-ordinary manner. Love and love-lost makes a big difference to the Libran although their often happy-go-lucky appearance against all kinds of odds may not reveal this as fact. Librans can switch off from the world around then and during these periods much more occurs on the deep innermost levels of the Libran's psyche, than their closest companions imagine. Many Librans after establishing a lifestyle that somehow falls short of their childhood dreams, manage to conjure up a most independent life and keep up an image of being dedicated to a "close relationship". They can escape into obscure role playing - and often this makes them extremely successful business people. When it comes to romance and love, Librans can be difficult to fathom yet in business many Librans discover they can not only be creative, but it provides an opportunity to express the more diverse sides to their personalities. Their charm can win jobs and provides powerful friends. But in both work and play, looking for peace and harmony, Librans often say "yes" when they should be saying "no". It is a sad fact about many a Libran's personal or business lives to say - many would have faired far better had they remained alone! But for those Librans who do find their secret dream and meet up with their Prince or Princess, that's another story! You'll find them living in some exotic, distant beautiful place, probably running the local bar or restaurant, designing the beach or ski gear, looking wonderful, sipping cocktails and finding life to be the total paradise they knew it could be. What Librans always have to remember when looking to fulfil their dreams is they should never undermine their own integrity and hold out until their dreams do come true - not simply take whatever is offered.
Scorpio Your element: Water Your ruling planets: Pluto Symbol: The Scorpion Your stone: Topaz Life Pursuit: To survive against all opposition Vibration: Resilient
Scorpio's Secret Desire: To triumph
Description: Reputed to be the "most powerful" sign of the zodiac, Scorpios lead fate filled lives and have intense and dramatic personal relationships. Even as children Scorpios are often found to be wise beyond their years. Many astrologers call this the sign of the "oldest souls". Old and wise beyond the average, Scorpios often know all the answers, except sometimes; they too often have difficulty finding what they need to develop their own happiness. Passion, desire and power go hand in hand for Scorpios. Their biggest challenge and test in life is choosing between the power of love and the love of power. Coming to grips with their extraordinary emotional depths and sensitivity isn't easy for those around them. They are different from all other zodiac signs and this difference has them walking, working and loving to a different beat. Others can often live with a Scorpio partner for years, but not really know them. Much to do with a Scorpio remains ever secret. Their eyes often blaze with feelings that words never express, and beware on the days or nights they hide their feelings behind dark glasses, there is likely to be a storm of some kind brewing. When you deal with a Scorpio you have to always deal with them on a psychic intuitive level. They often wear a mask. Too often they say "no" when they really mean "yes". They have contrary natures. Once they find true love they can be the most faithful dedicated of all partners but fall out badly with a Scorpio and you are likely to find they will never forget or forgive. Most Scorpios are winners. The main thing they have to worry about is their attitudes, which make up their mind powers and can either make or break them. When they are negative about something or someone, or critical of themselves, they can tend to get in their own way. Scorpios operate on three levels of soul evolvement; adding up to three distinctively different types of Scorpios. The first level is the Scorpion. This is the least evolved and most drawn toward using their powers the wrong way. The criminal element of Scorpio comes under this level. Then there is the eagle - the highflying, entrepreneurial, successful Scorpio, who seems able to rise above adversity and transform badtimes into good. Then the highest expression of this sign is the Phoenix Resurrected. These Scorpios are detached and extremely powerful. They are wise beyond their years and act as leaders and are an inspiration to others. Quite frequently a Scorpio goes through the three levels of evolvement in one lifetime - but the levels can operate out of sequence. Sagittarius Your element: Fire Your ruling planets: Jupiter Symbol: The Archer Your stone: Turquoise Life Pursuit: To live the good life Vibration: Overly expressive - frequent burnouts Sagittarian's Secret Desire: To make a difference in the world
Description: Ruled by the benefic planet Jupiter, Sagittarians possess a natural exuberance, sense of adventure and love of life that makes them one of the most optimistic zodiac signs of all. Like their astrological symbol - the Archer - Sagittarians are renowned for aiming their sights towards whatever it is they find alluring - a love partner, dream job, vacation - and making it their own. They believe that anything is possible - and because of this belief system, Sagittarians are adept at seeking out their very own pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
But sometimes trying to tie down these free-spirited individuals is frustrating for those around them. Sagittarians are happiest on the move - exploring new cultures and ideas and many are attracted to occupations related to travel, the media, outdoor work and philosophical pursuits. In love, their catch-cry is "don't fence me in". But once they find a partner who understands their need to retain their own sense of self and identity, Sagittarians can be the most big-hearted, generous and fun-loving companions of all. Freedom loving, optimistic and honest, Sagittarians are ruled by Jupiter, the planet of abundance and higher learning. The wisdom of Jupiter imbibes Sagittarians with an inherent need to develop their own unique philosophy of life. The Centaur is their astrological symbol, and it gives many insights into the Sagittarian personality. The higher-evolved Sagittarian learns to integrate the two ends of the Centaur (half-human, halfbeast) in order for their arrow (another Sagittarian symbol) of higher aspirations to be more on the mark. Although they are intellectually and spiritually advanced, Sagittarians are notorious for their lack of tact. In relationships they demand independence, but when in love, it can't be denied that they are one of the most big-hearted signs of the zodiac Capricorn Your element: Earth Your ruling planets: Saturn Symbol: The Goat Your stone: Garnet Life Pursuit: To be proud of their achievements Vibration: Poweful resilient energy Capricorn Secret Desire: to be admired by their family and friends and the world at large
Description: The sign of the high roller, Capricorn is regarded as the zodiac’s top, but also quiet, life and business achievers. But, there are two very different types of Capricorns. The first is represented by the mountain goat, always climbing higher and higher; never content until reaching the top. The second is the garden goat, with little adventurous spirit or ambition-happy to remain within a small domain, refusing to budge unless it is pushed. Either type of Capricorn, however, is patient and persevering. They reach their goals because they know the longest journey commences with a single step and that the first step is always the most difficult. The one thing a Capricorn must always try to do is balance work with play; otherwise they can become too one-sided and work can replace true personal emotional fulfilment. Continually climbing the eternal mountain of success, Capricornians rise to the occasion when faced with a new task or deadline. Even if something comes to a grinding halt, their ambition to reach the ultimate keeps them moving forever onwards and upwards (prompted by the strict influence of ruling planet Saturn). Although conservative and cautious, Goats are willing to try unusual approaches on their road to success in business or in love. Romantically, they desire a permanent relationship with someone who'll give them the affection they crave (and often neglect to give themselves!) The rulership of Saturn - the planet representing responsibility, structure and hard work - ensures that Capricorns in their truest of expression, are ambitious, practical and superb organizers. Although many Capricorns are borderline workaholics, this doesn't necessarily make them dull or gloomy! They have an offbeat sense of humour, which seems to erupt at the most unexpected moments. Their motivating force in life is success, money, status, authority and - although many might not admit it - love. By nature Capricorns are cautious when entering a new love relationship, but once they feel 'safe' with their partner, the cool exterior melts away to reveal a sensitive and loyal heart beneath. As a friend, Capricorns can be relied upon to provide the strongest and most sympathetic pair of shoulders in the zodiac... Aquarius Your element: Air
Your ruling planets: Uranus Symbol: The Water Bearer Your stone: Amethyst Life Pursuit: To understand life's mysteries Vibration: High frequency Aquarian's Secret Desire: To be unique and original
Description: Special note for Aquarians: With the new Millennium heralding the Dawn of the Age of Aquarius, at this time, ready or not, your sign is regarded as the zodiac's leader. You are the trendsetter for the future and because of this high responsibility, many under born your sign will be undergoing at this time, as we approach the Millennium, the pressure of personal change (particularly in your values and what makes you content and happy). Yours has always been a philanthropic sign. Now more than ever these qualities will be highlighted. Those born under the sign of Aquarius not only march to a different drummer, they make up new music as they go along. They are 'mind oriented' individuals, whose thoughts never stop tick-tocking over. Because of their high focus on intellectual exploration, many inventors, eccentrics and highly original trailblazers are born under this sign. Their intense ability to live on many mental levels, holds both pain and pleasure for Aquarians. For example, in the American Hall of Fame there are more Aquarians than any other sign, yet statistics reveal that in mental institutions there are more Aquarians than any other sign too. Many extremes can surround this sign and these extremes can take them to both heaven and hell. But in everyday terms, most Aquarians are extremely humanitarian and often involved in social programs that assist others. They can also be objective in judgement, for they never let their emotions get in the way. Outgoing and amiable, Aquarians attract friends wherever they go and those whom Aquarians befriend have their unswerving loyalty. Aquarians are the zodiac's most mysterious and unusual people - and no two are anything alike. Those born under this sign - ruled by innovative and non-conformist Uranus - march to the beat of their own drum. They see life in a different way. Others quite frequently think their habits and ideas are eccentric or crazy in some way, but it is this uniqueness that makes them so special. The Aquarian mind is extremely quick and they never seem to stop thinking (it is interesting to note that many born under this sign suffer from insomnia.) Aquarians usually have strong political, environmental or social beliefs. But whether it is a relationship, career or cause - Aquarians are happiest when they have "something" to believe in and nurture.
Pisces Your element: Water Your ruling planets: Neptune Symbol: The Fish Your stone: Bloodstone Life Pursuit: To avoid feeling alone and instead feel connected to others and the world at large Vibration: Erratic Energy levels Pisces Secret Desire: To live their dreams and turn fantasies into realities.
Description: Mysterious and alluring individuals, most Pisces are extremely talented, but even though they are gifted in many ways, they still manage to spend most of their lives battling "confusing" conditions. Pisces is the sign symbolised by the image of two fish. Their symbol depicts one fish heading upward, the other pulling
downward. This mirrors how Pisceans are frequently torn between two pathways in life, or actually do live two very different existences at the same time. The number 2, is a very powerful number for them. This zodiac sign is acknowledged as being the Saint and the Sinner rolled into one; the trendsetter of fashion or art, the lost soul, the philosopher and the psychotic and the visionary. As a credit to them, considering their many vulnerable characteristics; Pisceans are incredibly adaptable and resilient. They are to be found leading the field in many diverse areas of life and many Pisces can be found represented amongst top business millionaires. On the other side of the coin, prisons, reform schools and all kinds of institutions statistically hold a high number of Pisceans too. The Piscean's inner quest to explore their "ivory tower" syndrome can lead them into some most unusual and unlikely living conditions. Of all the signs of the zodiac, Pisces are the ones who end up in the most muddles over the years of their lives. They fantasize about situations, people and particularly romance - and because they spend so much time in their own form of 'fantasy land' this can catch them short in other more worldly areas. Because of this inner world of fantasy, Pisces people seldom perceive whatever is going on around them in its true light. They see life instead as they want to see it, coloring their view of the world in hues and tones far removed from its true reflection. No wonder this is the sign of both miracles and disillusionment. If you are a Pisces, be warned your emotions are a weak spot. One thing that plays havoc with your life is romance. When things romantically are going well for you, you are on cloud nine. When romance turns sour you land in a heap. Pisces often need to take lots of holidays (or time off) to recover from life's many diverse pressures. You are the zodiac's most sensitive sign, so you need to take extra special care of yourself. Nobody can beat you up, as much as you can beat yourself up within your own mind. In your purest form you are psychic, visionary and a guiding light to all who know you. But, in your "out of tune" state, you become depressed, obsessive and confused.

SYMBOL MEANINGS All zodiac symbols have meanings and they are not just arbitrary glyphs that provide a quick representation. The more you understand the zodiac symbols and meanings, the more intrigued you will be about this whole system of astrology and horoscopes. This article will bring it all together for you, not only the zodiac signs and the zodiac symbols and meanings, but also the zodiac symbols and months, zodiac symbols and dates, and zodiac symbols and planets. So let us begin our journey through the twelve signs of the zodiac wheel, starting with the very first one. Know more on zodiac signs and dates and zodiac signs and meanings. Aries The Ram March 21st to April 19th Ruling Planet: Mars As shown in the picture, the glyph or symbol that represents the fire ruled Aries, looks a little like a variation of the English alphabet 'v'. One meaning of this zodiac symbol is that it represents the ram's (the animal that represents Aries) horns (or head region). A ram has two outward curving horns that begin fairly close at the base and look something like the Aries symbol. Another version of this zodiac symbol and meaning suggests that the sign actually shows the eyebrows and nose structure of the human face of the Aries subject. Either way, the glyph acknowledges the fact that Aries rules the head region and Ariens are most typically headstrong, stubborn and 'act first and think later' kind of individuals. It is easy to see how the symbol aptly represents an Aries individual who usually has broad foreheads and sharp facial features. Interesting Fact An interesting fact that corresponds with the zodiac symbol meaning is that Ariens are the most prone to head injuries at various stages of their lives. Taurus The Bull April 20th to May 20th Ruling Planet: Venus The symbol of the Earth ruled Taurus, looks a bit like placing two horns over a circular figure. As you easily make out from the picture, this glyph also denotes the facial features of the Taurus bull. It is basically a symbolic representation of his rounded face and upwardly curving, usually pointed horns. Taureans are typically muscular in their physical features and more often than not, can be identified with their thick neck structure, broad backs and shoulders, and round, chubby faces. For those that can effectively visualize a Taurean, it is easy to see that the rounded glyph is symbolic of the Taurus tendencies of being obstinate, difficult to sway, and slow and sometimes lazy.
Interesting Fact Just like the rounded glyph, it is funny to note that most Taureans are usually born rounded and chubby or acquire a soft, chubby appearance as they grow older. It is rare to find slim, boney and underweight Taureans, unless they have other strong natal influences in their birth charts. Gemini The Twins May 21th to June 20th Ruling Planet: Mercury As the picture suggests, the symbol for the air ruled Gemini, is fairly easy to interpret. Standing like two upper case letters of the English alphabet 'I', the glyph is nothing but the Roman numerical '2'. Gemini being a mutable 'dual' sign, the symbol is no big surprise. Gemini people are usually two personalities caught in one body and hence the symbol of 'II' suggests this unique feature of theirs. Geminians are almost always caught between two sides, between two issues or between two decisions that are unfortunately mutually exclusive. They are almost always one of the two extremes of dark and light, right and wrong, etc. Another aspect of Gemini, that comes out of the symbol is that being two twins trapped in one body, one can never be sure which one, one is talking to. Just now a Gemini promised to go to the prom with you, just now he's asked someone else right in front of you! Interesting Fact One can actually identify a Gemini easily in the crowd. If you see one person having the most conflicting of actions and words, that change every two seconds, just like the weather on Mercury, you have caught your Gemini. Poor things, they are almost always multi-tasking and rushing around here and there, talking fast, eating faster, and all that...call it the Mercurial temperament. Cancer The Crab June 21th to July 22nd Ruling Planet: The Moon The glyph of the water ruled Cancer zodiac sign is complicated. As seen in the picture given, it is like two inverted commas, lying horizontally, atop each other. The two circles with tails seen in the picture, can represent two things with Cancer. Cancer being a feminine sign that stands for 'mother' in the zodiacal karmic wheel, the symbols can be seen as representing a woman's breasts. Another meaning of the glyph could be that it represents the two hooked claws of the crab. Whatever the intention for the symbol, its meaning is certainly one of the following things: motherhood, womanhood, tenacity (grip on things) and nourishment. Interesting Fact Cancer is such a strong feminine sign that you can see female traits like being emotional, being expressive and being sensitive and nurturing in both the males and the females. Their EQ is high and one highly amusing thing is that their families, especially their mothers, are next to God and should never be crossed! Leo The Lion July 23rd to August 22nd Ruling Planet: The Sun The fire ruled Leo has a glyph that shows a curving line that ends in a circle on one side (as shown in the picture). The glyph is symbolic of the highlight of every Leo, his many of wavy, frizzy, totally unmanageable hair. The graceful feline Leos, can easily be spotted out in a crowd with their thick, uncontrolled locks of hair that complement their tawny jungle skin and beautiful brown (usually) eyes. The royal curvature of the glyph also symbolizes aristocracy, grace, freedom and sensuality, all of which make up a Leo. Interesting Fact There is just one thing that a Leo cannot do, or just one peak that a Leo cannot conquer, and that is to keep his/her hair down and tamed. They can straighten their thick locks, curl them with hot irons, pin them down with restrictive pins and even bun them up in a tight knot but the hair is always, still free and unmanageable. You will find locks of hair always leaping out of their restrictions and gleefully showing off their freedom despite all odds. Virgo The Virgin August 23rd to September 22nd Ruling Planet: Mercury
The earthy sign of Virgo is represented with an upper case of the English alphabet 'M', with a little coiled appendage attached to the right side (as shown in the picture). Virgo is the only female representation of the zodiac and stands to represent the Roman and Greek goddesses of Ceres and Demeter respectively. Its glyph is said to represent one of two things. It is either a figurine representing the human intestines or it is a crude sketch representing the ovaries, vagina and uterus. As Virgo is usually prone to stress related digestive problems, the intestines seem like an apt zodiac symbol meaning. On the other hand, being the virgin, the female reproduction system can also be the intended meaning of this glyph. Virgo stands for health, diets, hygiene, healing and medicine and so, either of the body parts can fit in with it. Interesting Fact Virgins (Virgo people) are usually critical to the point of obsession with regards to their weight, physical appearance, eating habits and general health. It is usually the virgin who's trying out new and insane diets and it is also the virgin who's usually doling out tried and tested home remedies for routine maladies plaguing the mortal world. Libra The Weighing Scales September 23rd to October 22nd Ruling Planet: Venus The glyph representing the airy Libra looks like a curved Leprechaun hat placed over a horizontal straight line (as seen in the picture). The glyph represents weighing scales which are basically what most Librans are. They are the balance and harmony loving, just judges of the zodiac that are capable of solving rows between two parties after hearing both out. They are so obsessed with meting out justice that they appear to be extremely indecisive during their 'making up their minds' phase. Librans are all about the right balance of everything, color in their houses, nutrition in their food, equality in their relationships, etc. Interesting Fact It is easy to make out a Libra in your friend circle. Just pick up a fight with someone and check the one that first lends his ears to the argument, he is a Libra. It is funny to watch him as he takes different sides with every point that he hears, all the way down till the last point and then ponders over the whole issue before giving a judgment that neither parties expected. Scorpio The Scorpion October 23rd to November 21st Ruling Planet: Pluto The glyph of the water sign of Scorpio stands like the upper case of the English alphabet 'M' and curves out on the right hand side, ending in an arrow. You can easily identify from the picture that the arrow represents the dreaded Scorpion sting. It is a well known fact that Scorpio has a tendency to remember old (ancient for the rest of us for most have possibly forgotten them) wounds and hunt down the object that caused their hurt, for revenge. Their vindictive nature usually extends beyond retribution and is triggered by the thought 'I will make him pay ten fold for what he did to me (usually ten years ago)'. Keeping with this line of thought, the glyph is apt for Scorpio and also stands for the strength and determination of the zodiac sign in getting what it wants. Interesting Fact No Scorpion will ever own up to it, but Scorpions are so seriously seeking information that they can sometimes (just sometimes) even stoop to eavesdropping on gossipers. They will all be after me tomorrow when they read that I've exposed their very well hidden need for appreciation and praise, which sometimes equals that of Leo but just stays hidden, as the best kept secret of the century. Sagittarius The Archer November 22nd to December 21st Ruling Planet: Jupiter The fire driven Sagittarius archer is a half man half horse centaur that goes about shooting random arrows at random things. The glyph can also been seen in the picture to represent an upward pointed bow and arrow. The glyph is apt for a Sagg that is constantly shooting arrows of honesty at random individuals, uncaring that they actually hit the target and cause immense amount of hurt to all the proud fellas of the zodiac. Not being honey coated with diplomacy and tact, the Sagg arrows come out like poison tipped ammunition targeted at people. If taken constructively, they can help build a strong foundation for a lasting legacy (for they are almost always true), but if taken wrongly (or if they hit a very sore point) they are capable of ending many budding dreams.
Interesting Fact The poor Sagg man is usually the one who gives out statements like 'Gosh, I didn't know you were so fat. It shows in that dress' and 'You know, you looked really beautiful when I first met you (meaning you don't any more, right?)' and then looks all confused as to why you suddenly slumped you face and walked off in injured dignity. Cut him slack, the poor guy didn't mean it, really. I'll vouch for him. Capricorn The Goat December 22nd to January 19th Ruling Planet: Saturn The earth ruled Capricorn has perhaps the most odd looking glyph of the entire zodiac, as you can see in the picture. While one meaning of the zodiac symbol is given that the glyph represents the oddly twisted horns of a mountain goat, another begs to differ. The other version of the meaning suggests that only the 'V' shaped part represents the horns and the curvature on the right represents the tails of the mythical sea goat. In any case, the symbol is said to represent wisdom beyond years (from earlier lives) and grit and determination to tide over uphill battles. Interesting Fact Capricorn has a naturally inbuilt system to tackle aging. Believe it or not, these are the individuals that always appear younger than their age. You are sure to envy them when you are saddled with crow's feet and sagging cheeks. Aquarius The Water Bearer January 20th to February 18th Ruling Planet: Uranus The air sign of Aquarius carried the 'two wavy lines parallel to each other' glyph that can be seen in the above picture. Being shown as the water bearer in the zodiac, it comes as no big surprise that the two zig-zag lines represent water. Another version of meaning for this zodiac symbol is that of electricity. Being rules by the electric Uranus and being gifted with eccentric qualities justifies the glyph meaning. Aquarius is the critical analyzer and intellectual thinker of the zodiac and is known for his 'break the status quo and revolt' kind of ideology. Interesting Fact Give out a thought, any thought, in a group of people. The first person to oppose it will be an Aquarian. Not because they completely disagree with it but usually because they have a compulsion to do so. Believe me, being a fixed sign, it is very difficult to sway them from their statement either. Pisces The Fish February 19th to March 20th Ruling Planet: Neptune The water sign of Pisces shows off its dual nature through its glyph that fairly resembles that of Gemini. The two fish that are usually swimming in opposite directions are shown as two curves lines (like inverted brackets, i.e. closing bracket first, followed by opening bracket) and both the curved lines are joined by a straight line, around the middle. Like two conflicting souls trapped in one body, the glyph shows an apt meaning for the zodiac symbol. The glyph stands for the complexity of this sensitive zodiac sign that tends to live in a world of its own. Interesting Fact If you thought that Pisces was all about flowing with the tide, avoiding confrontations and generally being sweet, submissive and helpful, beware! You may have seen the simple fish but may be yet to confront the shark types. These Pisceans are aggressive, ambitious and driven; and would not mind squelching your advances with simple, sharp and sarcastic remarks.

Flags of the Zodiac - information taken from http://www.novareinna.com/constellation/flags.html
The Flag of Aries is predominantly scarlet-red. It is a color which evokes the state of activity, aggressiveness, excitement, boldness, frankness and delight. It is the impulse of energy, heat and ardor...and the most intensive color. It is a shade which is masculine, powerful, rude, choleric and physically irritating. In the light of day, scarlet-red is the brightest of colors, but it becomes less distinctive in the twilight. Its power does not spread to the quiet and soft nocturnal world. This color corresponds to the active triangular form and anything with a red surface will appear sharp and dynamic.
The Flag of Taurus is yellow-green. It is a color which liberates and renews feelings...which fascinates by softness and calm. It evokes the impression of nature and emotional satisfaction. It is also associated with pleasure, charm, enchantment and affection. Green is defensive and cautious, as well as being weakening and static. It is a feminine shade of passiveness and peace, wisdom of nature, eternal life and hope. It denotes the placid and harmonic oval form.
The Flag of Gemini is orange-yellow. This vivid color emancipates, creates interaction and is predisposed to contacts. It evokes intensive searching. Yellow is the most open, youthful and joyful color. It is directed toward the future, being sociable and restless...eccentric and quick. It demolishes limitations by making distances appear shorter. When painted yellow, objects reflect the light and attract attention. Yellow can correspond to the form of a six-rayed star, running out in the sides.
The Flag of Cancer is light emerald, known as "lunic" in the Orient. It is the color of perception and intuition...dismissal and isolation. It denotes an inner emotionality, changeability and freshness. It is ideally feminine. This particular shade of green (in comparison to that of Taurus) is more slender and cool. It is compliant but hidden. It is an emotionally unstable color, being sad, strange and dreamy. It is inwardly mobile while outwardly inert. Reflecting feelings of vulnerability and apprehension, it becomes lighter and luminiscent in the twilight. By day, it grows dim and dark. Light emerald has the feminine form of the long oval.
The Flag of Leo is a rich orange. It is a color which stimulates and strengthens, filled with force and health. It gives the impression of a constant flue of energy. Orange is the hottest, widest and most pleasant and positive of colors. It reflects the balance of will and possibility. It denotes consciousness, ripeness, abundance, happiness and sexuality. It ensures, supports, and evokes appetite. It awakes, but does not excite, and tends to embrace space. Orange corresponds to the form of the wide rhombus that joins the diversity of yellow and the strength of red.
The Flag of Virgo is varying shades of grey. It is a color which restrains, neutralizes, analyzes and distributes. It is also the color of modesty, renunciation, accuracy and mentality. As a merger of white and black, it joins the oppositions and can approach extremities. It is the least chromatic (i.e., "colorful") of colors, including all those in the integral form. Associated with rationalism and control, grey seems to abdicate from the vivid shine of the other shades. It contains some devotion, but there is also a certain amount of destruction and cynicism of a ruthless analysis. It is capable of sharp changes, being flexible, adaptable and practical. Grey is a difficult color to obscure. It corresponds to the rational rectangular form.
The Flag of Libra is light lemon. It is the most slender, tender and uncertain color, with a tendency to merge into white, which is the balance of all the colors. There is some artificiality, piquancy, weakness and indecisiveness in this shade. At the same time, however, it denotes lightness, caution, changeability and attractiveness. It is in tune with aesthetic perception and sympathy. It is a consoling color. This tinge is less intensive than the bright yellow of Gemini, being more static, modest and harmonic. It is a shade which orients toward contact but also evokes feelings of insecurity and unreliability. It suggests a concealed ruse and possible treason. This color has the form of a long hexagon (with concave sides) and reflects the light well, its intensity diminishing only a little.
The Flag of Scorpio is dark red. It is the color of emotional saturation, passion and power. It also symbolizes suppression, demand, sublimated activity, suffering, threat and strained temper. It is erotic and evokes instincts. In contrast to the red of Aries, this darker tinge is less open, being more secretive. There is some concealment and hardness in this shade. Because of its saturation, it causes excitement of a more emotional nature rather than the physical, as does the red of Aries. Dark red correlates with the form of the triangle, the top and the upper sides round, like a heart.
The core of the Flag of Sagittarius is ultramarine blue. It is the most transcendent and spiritual color of the dark sky, complete with stars and space. It directs into infinity, offering an inner assurance and interest in the mundane experience. It is symbolic of faith and religion and also denotes tradition, loyalty, straightheartedness and upper harmony. It evokes fascination in the sublime. According to statistics, blue is the most preferable color and correlates to "leadership authority" between the other colors. This shade has the form of the ideal circle, inspiring the feeling of inner support and solemnity.
The Flag of Capricorn is brown-black, which is the hard color of matter, reality and affinity. It denotes conservatism, stability, concentration and work. It is a color which makes demands, calls for silence and sets principles and ambitions. Black is the most concentrated and hardest color...the color of protest, judgment, renunciation and isolation. It suggests time and death as absolute finality. It does not reflect the light and creates feelings of seriousness, pessimism, compression and, of course, darkness. It corresponds to the restricted and closed...the stable form of the square.
The Flag of Aquarius is light blue. It is a color which inspires the sense of infinite perspective. It enlarges the space and manifests the subconscious, creating the impression of clarity, affection and friendship. It separates from the reality and tunes on dreams, suggesting endeavors of the supernatural and carelessness. Blue is the color of thought and fantasy. Born from physical passivity, it is the most distant and cold color, indicating remote contours of things, renovation and travel. It has the form of circle, widening and dissolving into space.
The Flag of Pisces is lilac-violet, the unstable color of inner contradictions which symbolizes gloom, mystery and melancholy. It is a color of alien influences, repentance, patience and sanctity. Violet is the dark shade of fascination, magic, supernatural, mystic and mysterious...the incomprehensible. It has a deep and even suppressing influence on the psyche, intoxicating the mind by hypnosis and meditation. It has the circle form with a wavy contour.

Have the Zodiac and star signs changed?
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-12207811 Zodiac Physical traits http://www.astro-visions.com/index.html Aries - Aries long face is enhanced by the high back sweeping eyebrows, the wide set eyes
(which tilt up on the outer sides), the prominent snout and the large upper lip plate. Needless to say, they mimic the qualities of a rambunctious ram. With the sizzling fire, this charging ram seems ever more pushy than the other cardinal signs. Taurus - Physical traits include thick, curly hair, wide fixed brows and bovine eyes, wide nostrils, a square jaw and heavy neck and shoulders. These creatures seem immovable, but you can expect some movement from the other fixed signs Gemini - The styles are different, but both are Gemini. Every Gemini has "twin" facial features which throws their face "off kilter". There seems to be two lower and upper lips, and a double layer of eyelids! The extra folds above the eyelids produces "two blinks", instead of one. Note how the long, thin nose and the pointed chin skew off in opposite directions. Cancer - As we see in the faces of Linda Ronstadt and Phyllis Diller, Cancers beam when the full moon reflects from their rounded "lunar temples". Watch for the full deep eyes, the high forehead, the wide eyebrow plate and the small recessed jaw. Leo - Watch for the lion's mane, the bushy eyebrows, the feline eyes, the broad and stubby nose, the jowly cheeks and the barrel-chested torso Virgo - The off-set squinted eyes, the split at the end of the nose and the gap in the frontal teeth accentuate Virgo's mutable look. Also look for the "chipmunk cheek pouches" and the long twisted jaw. Libra - Libra's most obvious physical trait is the wide smile and the "V-shaped" chin lines which sweep up and out-- to create those cherubic cheeks and dimples. Also watch for the sparkling almond-shaped eyes that dart from side to side. Scorpio - The large, intensely focused eyes make Scorpios stand out in any crowd. Also, note the square forehead and cubic jaw, the prominent beak, the wide flat cheekbones and the wide teeth (capped with a rigid, thin upper lip).
Sagittarius - Watch for the wide-bridged nose with the ball on the tip. Also note the large domed head, the long neck and the wide jaw that narrows quickly to a blunt and angled chin. Other features include the broad horsey teeth and the unmistakable sparkling eyes. Appropriately, many of these creatures are fond of pony tails. Capricorn - Check out the goat's prominent, bony brow which emphasizes the steely, deep set eyes. The large snout droops over the large, thin edged upper lip as it pushes the mouth low on the chiseled chin. The broad, high set cheek bones are drawn down in the center and this gives Cappies a solemn and serious appearance. Aquarius - As for physical traits, look for the high cubical forehead and wavy hair. Note the small, square tipped nose, the cheek dimples and the tightly drawn smile. This sign usually has inflated eyelids that tilt in from the sides. It gives the impression that they blink inward instead of up and down like normal people. Pisces - As for Pisces physical traits, look for the liquid mobius pattern. It sends the large, full eyes peering off in two directions. The heavy eyelids, nose and large lips seems saturated and unanchored. When Pisces' Mutable Waters wash over the face, the facial foundations shift and alter slightly-- as they change with the meandering currents.
Zodiac Physical traits http://www.astroroom.com/zodiac-appearance.html How to spot an Aries Definition, stiffness or sharpness. Remember this. Though it may sound like explicitly physical traits, (strongly defined facial lines, bony structure, triangular shape of face, edginess, sharp eyes) it's something deeper too. The speech and "feel" of a strong Aries personality is also "angular". They're like rocky formations in human form, even if they're chubby or downright fat. To put it quite vague; they seem precisely contained within their "container" or form. Sometimes this form projects a sense of disproportionality. For example, a woman with strong Aries energies may be endowed with a heavy bosom, while the lower part of her body is firm, slight and hard. There is often an impression of tightness and density of muscle in both genders. Look for an active, explosive quality, like a soldier always ready to march onto war, eagerly naive but also proud. Arians are idealistic and positive, and they believe they can do just about anything. Self-centeredness is common. Ironically, the masculinity of Aries is often most noticeable on females. Not that male Arians tend to be feminine in any way, but the aggressiveness and outspoken attitude of the sign is more noticeable contrasting the prejudiced idea of femininity in a woman. Additionally, the masculinity of Aries almost always is of the youthful kind; choleric, impatient and a bit childish. They have a concise and dry disposition - one might say the "aura" of a desert, seldom floating and diffuse. It is as if you'd burn your hand touching an Aries. Look for an immediate intensity, not deep down below in the eyes like a Scorpio, but just below the surface. Male and female Arians may appear controlled, but are easily moved and belligerent. Quick responsiveness and aggressiveness is common, as is vigour and passion. Picture the actor/comedian Eddie Murphy (Sun in Aries trine Ascendant in Leo). There is something quite intense, expressive and "sharp" about his mannerisms, about the way he radiates energy. Even in the case of a much less charismatic Aries personality than Murphy, there remains some kind of bursting, exaggerated part of the expression. Very dynamic, but seldom with much stamina. Superficial intensity. Among women, two notable Arians who exude much of the perky freshness and extroverted energy associated with the sign are versatile singer-actress Doris Day (Sun, Moon and Mercury in Aries, grand trine in fire) and Lucy Lawless (Sun, Moon, Saturn and North Node in Aries) whose somewhat silly "Xena, warrior princess" character clearly spells out the soldier/fighter quality of Aries, in her own 'girlpower' incarnation. How to spot a Taurus
Substance, presence and proportion summarize the impression of heavy Taurus influence. Taurus the Bull is probably the most physical of the signs, and this pertains both to substantiality in general and physical appetites. Look for solidity and weight. But do not translate "weight" as meaning fat or chubby. Bulls, especially in youth can be quite slender. It is more a matter of firmness and satisfaction, of emanating an aura that seems, in loss of better words, full and organic. Look for movements and gestures that are graceful and slow, softly methodical as if painting on a canvas. Since Venus is considered the ruling planet of the sign, you may sense a calm sensuality about a Taurus, seductive and sweet. However, spotting a Taurus is not easy - they don't possess any intense, buzzing charisma (with the exception of Taureans with a mass of dramatic, imploding aspects such as Jack Nicholson). No, their charm is more slow and earthy - you will notice how a typical Taurean seems to become part of the surroundings, like a piece of fine furniture. Not that Taurus is lifeless; it's just that there seldom is anything disturbing about their appearance. They are normally great dressers, with an innate sense of aesthetics. Listen for a deep, hearty laughter that endures long. Taurus likes to laugh, and their sense of humor is of the obvious sort, more stimulated by visual scenes and practical jokes than intellectual nuance. A steady, square impression of the body and face, usually with broad, generous proportions. Full lips and cheeks - body parts that are supposed to be soft are normally very full and soft in a Taurus. There's no mistaking about the sensual, magnetic appeal of Uma Thurman (Sun, Saturn, Mercury and the Midheaven in Taurus, with an elevated Venus). Her somewhat offbeat attractiveness is nevertheless firmly grounded in earthy, solid Taurus, and to be honest, doesn't she look a little like a bull or a cow? Also Audrey Hepburn, the paradigm of symmetrical, eternal beauty exemplifies the down to earth, organic purity that is the domain of Taurus. Hepburn has Sun and Jupiter in the sign, but also Taurean planet of beauty Venus involved with the Ascendant, Neptune and Saturn in a "Kite" formation in the horoscope. Among the highstrung, neurotic cast of Seinfeld, comedian Jerry Seinfeld himself (Sun in Taurus rising close to the Taurus Ascendant) comes out as a somewhat calming and normalizing influence. Look at his deliberate, soft movements and overall neatness. His trademark everyday-sort of standup comedy routine is also very Taurean. How to spot a Gemini Diversion - very lively and observant yet scattered. Look for these classic Gemini traits. The thing is, Geminis do pay attention to almost everything around them, but it doesn't seem like they do. A lot of people who don't realize this find Gemini rude or completely flippant. Geminis listen though, even while they're talking, and they have great memories. Behold the person you believe to be a Gemini - you will sense a lightness of being, irrespective of physical appearance or present mood. You will sense youth, irrespective of actual age. It's a rare Gemini who doesn't always give the impression of being preoccupied with something, be it the surrounding people or some private inner brainstorm. When it comes to the more conscious expression of a typical Gemini, there is an interesting thing to look for. Geminis are highly communicative and verbal, but those who seem loud and verbally forceful (often argumentative for controversy's sake) typically mask a certain sensibility of mind, a wavering refinement that is abhorrent to all forms of crudity. There is a tendency to nervousness and also a general flexibility. I find it useful to sum up the impression of a Twin-dominated personality with Peter Pan - the symbol of Peter Pan as well as the typical cinematic characterization of him. When it comes to physical "radiance", the presence of a Gemini is somewhat changeable and airy, seldom earthy or solid. The face is usually telling in its symmetry, civility and agreeability, as are the curious, intellectual eyes. The eyes seldom have the deep, floating kind of expression, but rather one of sobriety and logic - though when they gaze at you there is a sense of diffusion. Favourite celebrity examples include Gene Wilder, with that airy, nervously buzzing madness of comedy, bursting verbal energy and androgynous appeal (Sun in Gemini rising below the Gemini Acendant), Brooke Shields, tall and slender, with all her extroverted radiance, sharp Mercurial wit and genderless youth (showing Sun conjunct Jupiter as well as an incredible Stellium of the moon, Midheaven and Venus closely joined also in Gemini - and Ascendant in Virgo, similar to Gemini through their shared ruling planet of Mercury). Another fine specimen is Michael J. Fox, with that boyish Gemini look and rapid, "looking at you but not really seeing" eyes. How to spot a Cancer Restrained emotionality, intimacy and timidity. Cancer is the child of the Moon, and is usually betrayed by her eyes. Eyes are usually quite large, almond-shaped and in a peculiar way luminous - meaning they're light
in color or give the impression of light. The eyes tend to be watery and full of emotion even if the Cancer tries to hide it. If you get the impression that you are looking at a full or half moon contrasting a backdrop of darkness, you can take a fair guess that you're looking at a Cancer born. Although there are quite a few exceptions to the rule, you typically won't notice a Cancer immediately. Perhaps more than any other sign, the Crab sneaks up on you, subtly. You catch a glimpse of him or her in the corner of your eyes after a few hours at a party. Then they linger on your mind, quietly, and you don't quite know what role they have to play. Always eager to help and take care of things, Cancer is the one who'll fetch a bag of ice and hold it against the head of an accident-prone guest, or the one helping the host to remove spilled wine from the carpet. It's all part of the "mothering" tendency characteristic of Cancer or the Moon strong in the horoscope. Cancer men too share this embracing, caring instinct, although it might express itself differently. Sometimes the tender goodwill of Cancer can take on a smothering or domineering quality. Possessiveness is second nature to these people, and something you should always try to sense in a potential Crab. Though it sounds silly, it is in fact common for Cancers to have a body language and posture reminding of a living Crab. The movement of the arms, the careful, guarded walk, the highly set and wide chest. These physical features are common with Cancer ascending, but also with a generally strong Cancer influence. It has been suggested that female Cancers have either an unusually prominent or an almost flat chest, (being that Cancer rules this body part) but this idea should probably be taken lightly. A favourite example of Cancer strong in the horoscope is Robin Williams (Sun, Mars and Uranus in Cancer; Mars/Uranus involved in a "grand trine" with Cancer ruling Moon in Pisces and Ascendant in Scorpio). In spite of the extrovert and highly verbal comedy of Williams, there is no doubt that his intense outpouring of emotion and the way he almost obsessively radiates empathy and care comes from a dominance of Cancer and the water element. Additionally, his body and general appearance is prototypical Cancer/water. No commentary on the sign Cancer should overlook to mention Meryl Streep (Sun conjunct Uranus, and Venus in Cancer - her Ascendant says 2 degrees Leo, but I would not be surprised if her actual birth time was 10 minutes earlier than recorded, making hers a Cancer Ascendant instead). Streep completely impersonates the idea of the Moon-mother (at least to me), oozing of the fluid, feminine emotion and deep receptivity characteristic of Cancer. How to spot a Leo Nobility, drama, warmth. It should be the easiest thing in the world to recognize a Leo from out of a crowd. Sometimes it is. When the Leo energy gets its proper leeway, in a confident person, then there are seldom any doubts. Things are not so simple in reality, unfortunately. There is evidence that many people with heavily Lion-dominated horoscopes, (say the Sun and several planets, or the Sun and Moon in Leo) come off as a bit shy or reserved. These same is frequently true when other fire signs are strongly marked in the horoscope. You can be sure, however, that in such cases something is holding these people back. Leo is a dramatic, self-exposing, self-centred and highly flamboyant sign. Look for a natural royalty of stature; nothing is so evident in Leos as their concern for personal dignity and pride. The telling gaze of "I would not in my life sink so low" is very revealing. You will notice an arresting awareness in the Leo individual of the impression they make on others, a constant maintaining of their "auras of influence". Leos are generous with their resources and can be very sophisticated in their dealings with others - they listen politely with a slightly patronizing, although never offending smile. When they demand the attention of others, it is an unconditioned craving for complete attention. Leos may be (or at least seem) humble, but they are always, always self-satisfied in some respect. As mentioned, the Leo extroversion is not always present. Though right below the surface you will sense a steady inner glow of spirit. Leos aren't as direct and forceful as Arians, rather more persistent and authoritative. They readily spread warmth and life around; the close surroundings of a strong Leo is magnified and lit up, just like the sun. A reliable test consists in casually insulting the potential Leo candidate. If truly and strongly Leo, the responding look of disgust and hurtful indignance is unmistakable. Famous Leos should be plentiful but are sometimes elusive. A clear example is Rolling Stones frontman Mich Jagger (Stellium of Sun, Jupiter, Pluto and Mercury in Leo) whose unquenchable, dramatic artistry, and the ever persistent image-cult around him is essentially Leo. Also master of cinema Alfred Hitchcock, (Leo Sun and Venus rising in the Leo Ascendant) with the ambition to to embrace just about everything, dominating with a powerful personal authority and intergrity of person. Charlize Theron (Sun conjunct Moon
in Leo) is a glamorous Leo exemplar whose cinematic expression indeed often seems to be that of a big, purring cat. Magnetic and oozing with confidence. How to spot a Virgo Alertness, precision, humility. If you are looking specifically for Virgo characteristics, it's unlikely that you will feel certain beyond doubt. But this is actually part of the Virgo quintessence - not to have anything too prominent about their appearance dominating at the cost of balance and temperance. Many Virgos try to counteract their innate "properness" by projecting an image of easygoing bohemianism or general eccentricity, but this kind of charade is easily unmasked. Virgo eyes always have the unmistakable glow of sobriety and reason. People with Virgo prominent care a lot about how people perceive them. They are intent on creating a suitable mode of expression for themselves, and they cannot come to terms with spontaneity; in fact they need clear guidelines and a sense of daily routine to feel comfortable and secure. It is true that the evolved Virgo-types often are great "personalities", but theirs is a very aware, calculated sort of individuality. Almost as if their efforts at crystallizing their personality and gaining a real sense of integrity blows over into caricature. Virgos are known for their readiness to serve and help, but with a certain coldness of response. It is as if they're saying: "I'll be of assistance with anything, no strings attached, but please don't get personal or emotional with me". Recognize a Virgo by picturing a finely tuned instrument. Or by watching for alertness, attentiveness and a fondness for straight facts. A nervous or shy tendency to chatter away about exactly everything but what people are interested to hear is common. If this seems to insinuate that strong Virgo influence creates a rather dull and unfavourable outer image, the truth is that Virgos are sympathetic, and usually prove to be possessed of much more than meets the eye. Their carefully measured walk, symmetrical bodies and typically youthful, innocent features are telling. There is often something "petite" and spare about the physical appearance, especially the face, of Virgo. A typical example of the everyday man, whose ordinariness somehow borders on the unearthly is Keanu Reeves (a stellium of Sun, Ascendant, Mercury, Uranus and Pluto in Virgo). Reeves seems to me to represent a cross section of the human race, devoid of any very distinct quality, yet extremely personable in a quiet Virgoan way. Many mysterious and feminine actresses were born with Virgo prominent. The compassionate, delicate and somewhat subdued image projected by Ingrid Bergman (Sun, Mercury and Venus in Virgo) is prototype, as is Sophia Loren's earthy yet detached beauty. Michael Jackson represents the eccentric side of Virgo - a highly developed individuality bordering on the plain strange, hypersensitivity and obsession with details people would normally not consider. Amongst all of this is of course great talent and intelligence, and shrewdness in business. How to spot a Libra Grace. What is grace? If it is of the Libran kind, it's very socially evident and quite traditional. There is not much mystery about the Libran grace. There is a classic delight and venusian sensualism about the movements and gestures. Libra-dominated personalities tend to have a roundness about them, especially the face, which is ample and soft, with smooth, moist skin and a certain "meaty" quality. Even if the body is thin, the revealing dimples and curved features are often present in the face with a strong ascendant or other influences. Libra oozes of civilisation and elastic charm, very accomodating and compliant. They can be very talkative but also quite reservedly graceful, never harsh and seldom blunt. Look for the person who always approaches people with polite questions and dimpled smiles, careful to give others room and opportunity to voice their opinions. They usually like to be the center of attention, but not in the straightforward way of for example Aries. The women often exagerrate their femininity to hide that quite common mental sharpness and slight masculinity below the surface. The men can certainly have a feminine quality about them, that is instead compensated by a lively flirtatiousness and persuasive style. Spot those who appear to be "over-smoothers" and who avoids all confrontation of the more ugly kind. You can tell by their style and good taste, and by the vague sense you get of them not really saying exactly what they mean or think, as well as a friendly kind of sarcasm. Famous examples include the smoothness, charm and verbal style of libra-ascendant presidents such as John F kennedy (Libra Ascendant trine Venus in Gemini) and Bill Clinton (Ascendant, Venus and a Mars-Neptune conjunction in Libra). But the most striking example of Libra-Venus exterior, given correct birth time is the soft, venusian sensualism and curvy feminity (that conceals some masculine "sharpness") of Kate Winslet.
Winslet has an amazing gathering of planet-power in Libra (Sun, Moon, Ascendant and Mercury). Typical is also and the peace-loving but sarcastic aestheticism of John Lennon (Sun and Mars in Libra). How to spot a Scorpio Intensity and density. These are the keywords of Scorpio or Plutonian radiance. There is one thing one must remember when probing a person for Scorpio energy - look again. It's like gazing into a placid lake - first you see only stillness and surface, and then slowly things unfold, one after another. You are compelled to look closer but you cannot quite get a grip on what you really see. After a while you may get the feeling you're gazing within yourself too. The key is almost always the Scorpio eyes. The depth is always there, irrespective if the eyes are small and deeply set or large and pouting with emotion. Some would associate the look with fear and danger, and these are always important concepts in the Scorpio psyche. Somtimes they radiate fear and danger, sometimes they give a dangerous or fearsome impression. Scorpio energy likewise create the illusion of darkness and shadiness, even if the person is as pale and blonde as a beam of light. Here too, it is the eyes that do the trick. Imagine a cosmic black hole - intensely dense and heavy, it devours and magnetizes what is close enough without releasing or giving away anything itself. With the sheer force of gravity. You can't sight what is invisible, but you know it's there, you feel it. Scorpio is long associated with sexuality, but the notion of "sexy" is way too indefinite to be reduced to some recognizable appeal. Nevertheless, there is an obsessional, mysterious quality about a strongly Scorpionic appearance that hints of forbidden and desirable things. Perhaps the Scorpio "air" proves the idea that sexiness is mostly unrelated to the traditional image of beauty and desirability, owing more to that indescribable "extra" something in a person. In the world of glamour, strong Plutonian energy is seen in Jodie Foster (stellium of Sun, Venus, Mercury and Neptune in Scorpio) whose quietly intense disposition, abyss eyes and mysterious combo of cold detachment and passion tells the story. Fear and danger lurks around classic actor Charles Bronson, (Sun i Scorpio involved in a grand trine with angular Pluto in Cancer and Uranus in Pisces). Bronson's hypnotic, introvert charisma and rugged, odd sex-appeal is typical Pluto and water element focus. Other instances of Scorpio are Joaquin Phoenix, (all personal planets of desire - Sun, Venus and Mars - in Scorpio). His smoky exterior and watery eyes produce the paradox of great sensitivity together with a strain of demonism and subconcious strength, all Scorpio. Winona Ryder is also a perfect example of Plutonian emotional intensity and charm (Sun, Venus and Mercury in Scorpio, Pluto angular and elevated through its conjunction to the Midheaven). How to spot a Sagittarius Nonchalance. Watch for this. It is not unfriendliness or even arrogance, though the latter may also be present. Sagittarians love people, but they are not the subtlest of their sort or the ones best at picking up on moods and nuances. This is partly because the Sag doesn't draw a sharp line between people and ideas; sometimes they mix them together, and treat them kind of alike. A bright, buzzing, distracted disposition, if Sagittarius is strong. Two related qualities, sometimes immediately detecable beaming out from a persons very persona, are fanatism and "nerdiness". These are quite compatible with sagittarius. Look for enthusiasm. Even a cool, controlled Sagittarius-type has that naively bubbling enthusiasm hovering just below the surface, ready to boil over at anytime. It is important to define a quite different Sag-type. This one is quite shy, not the first to get noticed, normally very intellectual, and profoundly critical, cynical and sarcastic. While it actually shares the qualities of the former type, this one has learned to re-direct them inwardly. Even this seemingly detached type has the warmth and idealism of the more obvious type. There is a certain openness about the face of a marked Sagittarius, an inviting quality and what might seem like lots of skin "surface". Some jokingly claim Sagittarians look like horses, but this shouldn't be taken the wrong way. There is indeed a noble, shapely quality to the Sag, having fine, generous proportions. There is something buzzing and light-radiating about the personality of a marked Sagittarius. Not in the centred, noble way of Leo, but rather more intellectual and expansive with a broader sweep. Think of the greek philosopher, enthusiastic and human, eager to share wisdom and information. Perhaps bohemian and untidy but always attractive in a frank, youthful and sunny manner. In the world of stars, we see a striking Sagittarian in Woody Allen, showing a conjunction of the Sun, Jupiter (ruling planet of Sagittarius) and Mercury in the Archer sign. No clearer evidence can be imagined of Allen's bursting, visionary expressiveness, that seemingly uncontrollable communication urge of Jupiter in its own
sign conjunct the planet of information and communication and the Sun. Another favourite of extroverted fire energy and jovial, frank Sagittarius energy is Bette Midler (Sun and Mercury in Sagittarius, Jupiter opposite the Aries Ascendant which also trines Mercury in Sagittarius). And not to forget Jimi Hendrix, (Sun, Ascendant, Mercury and Venus in Sagittarius opposed by Uranus in Gemini) a powerplant of artistic, highflying electrical energy. How to spot a Capricorn Professionalism, dignity, strength, impersonality. Although it is no challenge to describe the characteristics of Capricorn, it is not always easy to recognize typical Capricorn behaviour and appearance. Most Cappys come out as solid, no-nonsense individuals with a somewhat impersonal "get the work done" attitude. Then there are quite a few of the soft, responsive type who glorify imagination and mystery. Usually, the best way to spot a goat is to look for a melancholy, serious exterior below which dwells a dry sense of humour. Capricorns are surrounded by an air of effectivity and competence. Even their posture and body language speak of practicality and the desire for problem-solving. Capricorns always conceive of things as problems to be overcome or tasks to be completed. Realizing this, recognizing them becomes easier - Capricorns want to effectively remove not only their own but also everybody else's obstacles. They sometimes appear cautious or even shy; the kind of person who won't give away anything, and you suspect there is more to them than meets the eye. Many Capricorns give an impression of humility, but few are unaware of their own real worth and ability. Physical features vary. The popular notion of Capricorn appearance is a slender, bony type tending towards dusky and dark colors of hair and skin, a sharp, pointed nose, thin hair and marked cheekbones. However, many male Capricorns seem to contradict this image. They appear to be heavier and more robust, with an open face and generous proportions, much like the prototype "good" male romantic hero. The sense of sturdiness and sharpness remains, though. Female Capricorns are even harder to pinpoint. They can be quiet, squarish types who dissolve into the background. Yet experience shows that Capricorn women (not just models and moviestars) often have a spare, very unique beauty of their own - what might be described as a sense of purity and detachment seemingly at odds with their candid sensuality. Celebrity Capricorn Anthony Hopkins (Sun, Ascendant, Mercury and Venus in Capricorn) gracefully show the immense dignity, patience and quiet strength of the goat in full bloom. Dictator Joseph Stalin (Sun in Capricorn square Saturn in Aries, Ascendant in Capricorn) on the other hand exemplifies the occasional despotic purposefulness of the goat. Faye Dunaway (Sun, Venus and Mercury in Capricorn) seems to me the classic image of "hard-headed woman", soaked in the typical superiority and restrained charisma and beauty of some Capricorn women. How to spot an Aquarian Detachment and a hint of peculiarity. What to remember is that strongly Aquarius-influenced people are always hard to pin down. They can be enthusiastic and open, socially expansive, but tend to keep their distance, seldom making a complete emotional investment. Always "cool". While the reputation of Aquarian unconventionality is quite true, it is seldom a striking feature of their appearance. In spite of the bursting release-energy of their ruling planet Uranus, Aquarians are frequently humble and relatively quiet persons. Sure, there are many utterly extrovert and bizarre representatives for the sign. And yes, many match their inherent aloofness with a markedly bohemian (or unusually formal or classic) style of clothing or some other striking accessory or ornament. But these sorts of things are commonplace today and hardly original. Look for a tolerant, civil, shock-proof, very friendly and amiable attitude. Notice also the suspected Aquarian's group-behaviour. Aquarians relate ambivalently to group activity, crowds and associations. While naturally equipped with a collective "feel" and attraction to the dynamics of human interplay, Aquarians are essentially loners and individualists, intent on not being swayed by public opinion and attitudes. They usually don't aim for the center of attention, and probably because of this gravitate towards it anyway. They have a relaxed yet electric charisma that attracts because of its lack of eagerness, and also by the Aquarian's interest in other people and wide-ranging humanity. Often strongly built; wide shoulders and clear eyes, an intellectual, impersonal air that can seem (and be) quite unemotional. A decidedly, cool, buzzing radiation, but at a low frequence. Aquarian men are masculine in an androgynous way, quietly paradoxical and calm. Women are open and progressive, quite alluring in their distance and indifference. If attractive they're usually very attractive, but in quirky, originally glamorous way.
Celebrity examples include Geena Davis (Sun in Aquarius exactly opposite Uranus by the Midheaven), with that highly charged, erratic charisma and sharp intellectuality, Tom Selleck (Aquarius Sun in the first house exactly trine Uranus); essentially Aquarian with his calm, friendly and humane yet detached and individualistic demeanor, and Mena Suvari (Sun, Mars and Mercury conjunct in Aquarius) whose off-beat, alluring beauty and glowing intelligence is characteristic. ow to spot a Pisces Mystery, elusiveness, sensitivity, sympathy. Vague words are required to describe vague Pisces. With Pisces we are dealing with the true chameleon of the zodiac, someone apt in assuming whatever role it finds appealing or necessary. Some male Pisceans try hard to be one of the guys, one of the macho naturals. Usually it's a pure act, but since Pisces typically lacks the strong ego boundaries of the other signs, any identification with an ideal can easily go deep enough to become a real part of the person. Strongly Piscean women are almost uniformly all-feminine, possessing that fragile and enigmatic quality that evokes fascination and protectiveness in both men and women. All three watersigns are distinguished by their eyes; with Pisces it is not so much the immediate characteristics of the eyes, as in Scorpio's intense, at the same time inward and outward gaze, or the moonchild almond-eyes of Cancer. Surely most Pisceans have very expressive and beautiful eyes, but it is rather the feeling they project - that of the boundless ocean, the otherworldliness that is so hard to pinpoint. Look for that long lost "soul" quality - the gaze of sympathy and understanding. In spite of being quite shy, Pisceans tend to stare a lot. Neptune, ruling planet of Pisces, is the king of illusion and estrangement. Pisces radiates a special largerthan-life quality that resists categorization and can sometimes seem rather unstable. Some people are perhaps annoyed by Pisces' excessive tolerance of other people, and their unwillingness to provide straight answers. Pisces always seems distracted, longing for something far away, perhaps in another dimension. When asked about the contents of their daydreams, most fall short in trying to describe them. Imagine the sage or poet, gently possessed of a quiet wisdom and soul-strength beneath the openly vulnerable exterior, and you've got the stereotype Pisces. The highly feminine appeal of actress Jennifer Love Hewitt (Sun and Mercury in Pisces, Sun trine Scorpio Ascendant) seems unmistakably water/Pisces in quality. Benicio del Toro (Sun, Mercury, Venus and Saturn in Pisces, Venus/Saturn involved in a water grand trine with Neptune and Jupiter) has that shady mysterious allure that in his case led to portraits of questionable yet magnetic characters. Cindy Crawford, who publicly embodied the more glamorous feminine mystery of Pisces for quite some time, has an incredible stellium of planets in Pisces close to the Midheaven (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars and Saturn) along with a Cancer Ascendant and Neptune in Scorpio making a trine to the Piscean Mars/Saturn conjunction. Singer Johnny Cash (Pisces Ascendant as well as the Sun, Mercury and Mars conjunct in Pisces opposite Neptune in Virgo) could have fooled anyone with his tough-guy appearance and spare songs. Upon reflection though, every single breath he took bore the unmistakable stamp of Pisces - the attraction to the depths and lows of life, the non-judgemental attitude towards the "sinner", the abuse of drugs, the ancient timbre of his voice, the belief in the mystical purifying power of music and of course his timeless yet idiosyncratic songwriting.
Hindu star signs
One of 27 principle asterisms (star clusters, also called Lunar Mansions) in the Hindu system of astrology. Usually refers to one's birth star. In this sense, a person's Nakshatra is determined by drawing a straight line from the earth through the moon at the exact time of birth and noting the group of stars the line points toward. The Nakshatra is an important factor in determining the characteristics of an individual. A Nakshatra is completed when the Nirayana longitude of the Moon as measured from the fixed initial point attains a value of 13° 20' or a multiple thereof. When the longitude is 13°20', the first Nakshatra (i.e.. Ashvini) ends, the same is 26°40' the second Nakshatra (Bharani) ends and so on. There are thus 27 Nakshatra which completes the circle of 360°. National Calendar of India - The year of National Calendar begins from March 22 in an ordinary year and March 21 in a leap year. Many of Traditional Astrologers don't take pain in going deeply into the placement of planets into the particular Nakshatra and just give predictions on the signs in which they are placed but we at AskGanesha.com calculate and find out the Nakshatra and even their Sub lords (Up-Nakshatra), thereby ensuring accurate predictions.
