Zodiac Signs and Meanings
What Are the 12 Astrological Zodiac Signs Meanings?
The stars have been around for a long time providing guidance to those on land and sea. In a similar way the stars can provide guidance for you in your life. Shamans believed that if you were born under a certain set of stars then you would be affected by how that particular constellation moves and how it is affected by all other things in the universe. It’s been shown time and time again that zodiac constellations contribute to the personality traits of persons born under them.
There are twelve astrological zodiac signs that are very different from one another. Each zodiac sign has meanings and characteristics that are displayed by any person born under that sign. Here is a brief look at all twelve signs.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Cancer
The fourth sign on the horoscope chart is Cancer and is ruled by the Moon. They are symbolized by a crab design and are very mysterious. At times are even contradictious. Born from June 21 - July 22.
Their personalities are extremely emotional. Their friends and family members mean everything to them and they will always help them out when there is trouble. Cancer people don’t like to see others suffering and hurt and will do everything they can to make it better. Family is placed on the highest pedestal in life to show the importance. While important, cancer star signs are also secretive about their family members. They prefer to keep personal issues private.
The crab is the animal that represents the Cancer sign. For people who don't necessarily like crab style horoscope tattoos, they can also choose the pearl as another symbol of the Cancer sign. Cancer individuals are usually loving, intuitive, emotional, imaginative as well as protective and sympathetic. However, Cancers can be moody, complex and have the inability to let go of anything they're attached to. Silver is the color associated with the Cancer zodiac symbol.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Virgo
The sixth sign in astrology is Virgo, which is ruled by Mercury and means Virgin. The person has to be born August 23 to September 22 to be one. They are pleasing and seeking love.
Virgo mindsets are notorious for being instinctively quarrelsome. It is as if they seek out every miniscule irregularity in life and instantly find fault with it. If another individual does not concur with the Virgo's point of view, a debate will quickly ensue. Personal health care is a high priority for Virgos. They consume a well-balanced diet, incorporate exercise into their daily life, always conscious of maintaining a shapely figure.
The virgin is the symbol representing the Virgo sign. Virgo's are typically modest, intelligent and reliable, paying attention to the details while being practical. Virgo's can be very charming, however if they lean more toward their bad side, they can be worry warts, harsh and overly perfectionist. Dark brown and green are the colors associated with the Virgo zodiac symbol.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Libra
Next is the seventh zodiac sign, which is Libra and is ruled by Venus. All people that are this sign are born from September 23 to October 22. They are laid back and uncomplicated beings.
Libras are known for their social life, meeting strangers and making friends. With this craze for social life, people with the Libra sun sign frequently hang out with their friends and can be seen enjoying the party. Most of the people love to have friendship with the Libras due to their pleasing personality and nature.
Balanced scales symbolize the Libra sign. As their scales would suggest, Libra people are usually balanced, diplomatic, easy going and moralistic. However, their dark side can include them being indecisive, naive and self indulgent. It's considered to be one of the most desirable zodiac symbols to have as it's associated with harvest time, the climax of the year's productivity.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Sagittarius
The ninth symbol of the zodiac is Sagittarius and is ruled by Jupiter. They are considered archers. People born between November 22 - December 21. They are very optimistic.

This trait can be very useful when dealing with negative people, as they have ability to somehow find positivity even in the worst situations.
The Sagittarius is symbolized by the archer centaur. They are all generally optimistic, joyful, and somewhat intellectual and love their freedom. However they can also be too optimistic, careless and even irresponsible.

As a Scorpion, you are one committed, dedicated, and diligent worker to your cause. You give a hundred and one per cent of your blood, sweat, and tears, not stopping until it is perfect in your eyes. You value honesty and hope to get it from other people. If there is one thing that you cannot stand, it is being betrayed, cheated on, or let down. You can distinguish flattery from sincere praise because you know yourself well.
The Scorpion symbolizes the Scorpio sign. Scorpio is thought to be the most intense and powerful character among the other symbols of the zodiac.
