The Meaning of the Star Signs In Astrology

Aug 12, 2008
Hey, what's your sign? Pretty lame pick up line, huh? Back in the 70's when disco enthusiasts used that line in bars; they were referring to their compatibility based on their star sign. Because of the huge importance of the sun, coupled with its convenience, the position of the sun within constellations is the most influential and accepted component of the astrological chart, or any other astrological system for that matter.

The astrological year commences in spring, with the first sign being Aries. Each sign, sometimes referred to as the Zodiac signs or Houses, is associated with one of the four elements. A planet, and set of personalities and individual traits that are able to broadly encompass the people born while the Sun is positioned within that particular constellation.

Below is a brief description of each of the star sings, its element, its personalities, and its planet. Aries is a Fire sign. People whose star sign is Aires are the action over words people. They don't just talk the talk, they walk the walk. Aries is ruled by Mars.The next star sign is Taurus. Taurus is an Earth sign, whose predominant traits are stubbornness, security in a relationship. Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus.

We then come to Gemini. Gemini is an air sign ad represents the sons of Zeus, Castor and Polydeuces. Gemeni's exhibit logic, inquisitiveness, though they can sometimes be superficial. Gemini is ruled by the planet Mercury. After Gemini is Cancer. Cancer is a Water sign, ruled by the Moon. Cancers can be erratic, and though they don't show it, they are sensitive and strongly affected by love and life.

Leo is a Fire sign, ruled by the Sun. Leo the lion is a proud and powerful sign. Leos are generous, proud, though sometimes arrogant. Virgo is an Earth sign, ruled by Mercury. Virgos are proud and a good friend. Practical and efficient, they can sometimes be over critical. Libra is an Air sign, ruled by Venus. Symbolic of balance, Libras like to have intimate relationships and are experts in soothing violent energies.

Scorpio is ruled by Pluto. Murky and mysterious, Scorpios are wise on a much higher level than other signs. Sagittarius the Archer was sage and king of the centaurs, a race of half horse and half man. Sagittarius is a fire sign, ruled by Jupiter. Sagittarius's are intelligent, yet somewhat careless. Capricorn is an Earth sign, ruled by the planet Saturn. Capricorns may have a strong desire for wealth and material possessions, though they lack emotionally.

Aquarius, unknown to most and commonly misconceived, is an Air sign, not a water sign. Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus. Aquarius's are humanitarians, unconventional, and sometimes detached. Pisces the Fish are ruled by Neptune. Obviously, Pisces are a water sign. They are imaginative, sensitive, and impractical. Pisces will have no problem putting their plans in to motion. Pisces is a bipolar sign, being pulled in opposite directions, though held together by a cord on their tales.

Astrology has grown gretaly in recent years with many people now wanting to receive their horoscopes on a daily basis. They can now receive free daily horoscopes that are emailed to them daily. These daily horoscopes can then be used to help guide people through the day ahead.
