The Zodiac Birth Sign TAURUS: "I Have"
April 20-May 20

taurus This zodiac birth sign produces individuals who have a very purposeful determination and a strong sense of their own power. They are exceptionally tenacious - once their mind is set on achieving something, they will undertake the necessary workload with persistence. This zodiac birth sign can be relentless- it just doesn't believe in giving up. Taureans are also known for being stubborn - they have their own way of doing things, and if one is to have a smooth relationship with them, it is wise not to avoid interfering with their choices. Similarly, you will find it hard to budge them from a certain way of thinking, for they tend to be quite fixed in their opinions and attitudes.

This zodiac birth sign is fond of the good things in life and often focus their attention on material acquisitions. They like money , but not for the sake of having it, but rather because of the enjoyment they can get out of things money enables them to purchase. They tend to evidence a love of creature comforts, satisfaction, and pleasure. Whatever fulfils the needs of people who are born under this zodiac birth sign, you can be sure they will make an effort to possess it. Taureans see to it that nothing interferes with what they want.

Since Venus rules this zodiac birth sign, Taureans have a high appreciation of form and beautiful things, especially those which appeal to their sense of touch. They are fond of good clothing and other things which contribute to a pleasing appearance.

The centre of this zodiac birth sign's universe is security, both emotional and material. Taureans withhold themselves from involvement until they have determined whether a person, situation, or relationship will be of use to them. However, people born under this zodiac birth sign have such a strong sense of loyalty towards those they care about that they can often end up burdening themselves with the griefs and problems of their friends and loved ones. This zodiac birth sign can also be intensely jealous, sometimes to the point of being absurd. They have a tendency to view another person's affections as their own property, and can be very possessive, which arises out of their deep inner mental and emotional need for security.

This zodiac birth sign is not inclined to self-analysis, so is not usually aware of their inner motives. They have a strong willpower, which enables them to make plans from a distance, perhaps even years in advance. Taureans strive assiduously toward their goals, firm in their acquisitive instincts, and so success usually follows the efforts made by this zodiac birth sign.

The Zodiac Birth Sign GEMINI: "I Think"
May 21-June 21

gemini This zodiac birth sign produces individuals who like to use their mind -Gemini's are usually thirsty for knowledge and keen to study .People born under this zodiac birth sign usually have a well developed capacity for learning and an inventive imagination. They are also well known for being chatty, sociable people who take an interest in everything and everyone around them.

This zodiac birth sign evidences reactions to life that are very much prescribed by the mood of the moment , so can appear changeable and even fickle. Variety is the spice of life for this zodiac birth sign, and this philosophy can result in a nature that is quite highly strung. Unless things go their way, Gemini's can get rather depressed. And people born under this zodiac birth sign are inevitably happier when they have more than one dominant interest. This zodiac birth sign bestows a state of nervous awareness in those born under it , a trait that allows for little intellectual or physical tranquillity. This is useful in emergencies, as Gemini deals well with highly charged situations and can think and act very quickly, without losing control of their emotions. But on the other hand, it can create a restlessness of spirit, which makes it difficult to relax - Gemini's are apt to have their fingers in various pies, which can leave them quite exhausted and prone to stress. People born under this zodiac birth sign must work to acquire calmness of mind as well as body!

This zodiac birth sign usually enjoys a good deal of popularity - they are good conversationalists, mentally agile, sociable, courteous, fun-loving and witty. However, this zodiac birth sign dislikes being bound to any particular person or place. Gemini's also possess a highly curious nature - they are always searching for personal intellectual security in the middle of their constantly changing experiences. It would be rare to find anyone born under this zodiac birth sign who didn't enjoy regular changes of scenery, people and atmospheres.

People born under this zodiac birth sign can appear quite eccentric, but can never be accused of dullness ! Gemini's can have unconventional attitudes to personal relationships - they find it very hard to commit or act in ways that are "expected" or that are the "social norm".

The Zodiac Birth Sign CANCER: " I Feel"
June 22-July 22

cancer People born under this zodiac birth sign have highly developed protective and defensive instincts , which are aimed at domestic and material security. This zodiac birth sign can be extraordinarily sensitive - the crab shell, Cancer's symbol, represents the crust or armour which hides extreme sensitivity and psychological vulnerability. Cancer's are afraid of getting hurt, or being rejected for who they are, and so they can be overly self protective, which can make them rather withdrawn and inclined to seek solitude over company. This tendency can be unfortunate due to the powerful drive for a family and home that people with this zodiac birth sign tend to possess. A sense of completion is not a reality for Cancer until they are able to lavish their protectiveness on their family.

This zodiac birth sign has a strong need for security, so will do whatever it takes to establish that in their lives. Cancer's are savers rather than spenders, and seldom take risks with their finances unless they have a safe "rainy day" fund to fall back on.

Those born under this zodiac birth sign can be rather complex individuals ; at certain times they come across as being very strong and resilient, then at other times may display the vulnerability and dependency of a child.

As a rule, this zodiac birth sign is well-intentioned, but they can be inconsistent in their disposition ; one moment they may be sweet and charmingly outgoing, and the next rather melancholic, introverted and distant. The moods of this zodiac birth sign are apt to shift without warning, and when in a sulk, they clam up and are not inclined to talk about what's bothering them. When feeling hurt, Cancer can behave quite nonsensically, being unable to collaborate with others. This zodiac birth sign can also be rather childish and stubborn, making reasoning with them very challenging!

Cancer's usually appear gentle and tranquil, but their inner thoughts are difficult to fathom - people may find this zodiac birth sign hard to fathom, and so Cancer may rarely get the necessary understanding from others, simply because whatever is wrong is not clear to those around them. Cancer must work hard to talk about how they feel, or risk creating misunderstandings with those close to them. This zodiac birth sign is known also for it's loving, tender , nurturing nature - Cancer enjoys helping others and likes to feel needed. But at the same time , too much love can feel smothering to those it is bestowed upon - a tendency some Cancers may need to guard against ! This zodiac birth sign may also need to caution themselves against an inclination towards loving another even when the object of their affections is unsuitable or downright bad for them - once Cancer feels love for another, they can find it impossible to let go, so can find themselves sticking around even when they would benefit from letting go.

This zodiac birth sign tends to avoid , at all costs, any kind of mental or physical discomfort. Neatness and cleanliness are conspicuous attributes of people born under this zodiac birth sign, so it would be unusual to find a Cancer whose home was not loving looked after and full of creature comforts!

Cancers are masters of the art of passive resistance. This can be a powerful weapon, which when wielded, makes them unapproachable. With kindness, this zodiac birth sign can be directed easily, since they are basically understanding . But if forced, they become immovable. Cancer hates being told what to do - they must complete tasks on their own, as the ideas of others just confuse them. At times, this zodiac birth sign may shun responsibility, but if they are working on some enterprise that promotes or requires it, they are punctual, exact and efficient, willing to guide things through to a successful conclusion.

The Zodiac Birth Sign LEO: "I Will"
July 23-August 22

leo People born under this zodiac birth sign possess an innate generosity and nobleness of feeling. Ruled by the Sun, whose function is to bestow upon the world heat, light and life, and which is the centre around which the other planets in our solar system rotate, it is natural that this zodiac birth sign must have the spotlight, and once in it, they must shine. Leo enjoys being the centre of attention , and is known for being the life and soul of the party.

Providence helps this zodiac birth sign when they need it most. New fields of action suddenly open at a time when there would appear to be no obvious solution to their problem. As the sun infiltrates the darkest shadow, so it puts Leo into the light.

This zodiac birth sign rules the heart ; therefore Leos give of themselves abundantly through their time, money, and knowledge, with no thought of the self. They have magnanimous spirit, and a strong inclination to help and support others, to be their reliable "rock" and steadying influence.

People born under this zodiac birth sign naturally assume that everybody else possesses a sense of integrity equal to their own, and because of this, they tend to be overly confident, frank and outspoken - traits which can cause them interpersonal differences. Leo's would benefit from being a little less quick to offer total trust in others, and a lot less brazen with their opinions and feelings!

This zodiac sign does not like repetition. Once they see the point, they become quite impatient, and often obstinate, in discussions. Those who disagree with Leo's opinions should be tactful, for Leo will surrender only so long as his dignity is recognized. People born under this zodiac birth sign want people to think well of them, and will direct a lot of energy into achieving this, usually with the desired result. Leo's are always warm individuals, so it is easy to gravitate towards them and like them.

Any role this zodiac birth sign assumes is invariably a noble one. Their sense of the dramatic is so strong that they achieve nobility in playing this role, and so create their own reality. But self-approval is also very important to this zodiac birth sign: self-approbation replaces conscience. They tend to do anything they think is right - even if this means sacrificing public disapproval for self-approval. And if they are forces into compromising situations, they will intensely dislike their work and probably neglect it.

This zodiac birth sign's symbol is the Lion, which denotes majesty, power and dignity. As a kingly sign, Leo expresses pride in every movement and may give off an air that is rather stately. And this zodiac birth sign responds very well to power - when they have it, it increases their self confidence to such high levels that they appear to glow ! So long as people born under this zodiac birth sign feel that they are in a position of authority and responsibility, they'll leave no stone unturned in order to justify the confidence that has been placed in them. Leo's function well in positions of responsibility and management, and if denied some way to feel authoritative in life, may develop traits of indolence, impetuousness, and inconstancy.

This zodiac birth sign is strongly attracted to the opposite sex. Affections are worn for all the world to see , and males in particular will go to great lengths to woo and romance a woman, usually with some grand or generous gesture. Both sexes will seek the dominant role in any relationship they forge and all Leos are fiercely protective of their loved ones, stopping at nothing to defend their family and home. Practical, philosophical and spiritual, these qualities, along with their enthusiasm and inspiration, help people born under this zodiac birth sign to mould public opinion, hence the association of Leo with heads of state, politicians and leaders of other kinds. Leo also possesses enormous courage - sometimes reckless courage - but they never fight unfairly, no matter how great the advantages offered. In victory of any kind, they remain magnanimous and in defeat, somehow they stand unconquered.

The Zodiac Birth Sign VIRGO: "I Analyze"
August 23-September 22

virgo For those born under this zodiac birth sign, the hub of the universe is work. Since Mercury rules Virgos, they are forever seeking knowledge, and through this seeking, they learn that the mind of man is a good servant but a bad master, especially when the mind usurps the sovereignty of the spirit. This zodiac birth sign have to learn that although the body must serve the mind, ultimately the mind must serve the spirit.

The symbol for this zodiac birth sign is the virgin, who holds sheaves of grain in her hands. The sheaves represent the wisdom that is harvested in the fields of experience. People born under this zodiac birth sign are meticulous in their work, paying great attention to detail, and doing things carefully and efficiently. Virgo's enjoy bringing order out of confusion. Because Virgo values work and has a great deal of respect for it, they go to great lengths to help others find employment but will rarely lift a finger to assist someone who gets into difficulty through a refusal to work. To this zodiac birth sign, the only true aristocracy is that of the worker.

However, this zodiac birth sign is much too practical and intelligent to allow anyone to make martyrs of them. If demands upon them become unreasonable or excessive, they say "no" with conviction. In its best form, this zodiac birth sign makes for efficiency and brilliant performance of duty.

People born under this zodiac birth sign tend to subject their world to a microscopic analysis. Sometimes, they get engrossed in trivialities to the extent of becoming blinds to the significance of the bigger picture. Eventually, developed Virgos learn to discriminate between the essential and non-essential, and once this ability to make distinctions evolves, Virgos are able to become great scholars, constructive critics or exacting editors - all exacting perfection.

However, people with this zodiac birth sign should not mistake a brilliant intellect, with its accompanying faculty of criticism, for heavenly wisdom. Virgos must cultivate absolute dispassion when evaluating their own performance and that of others. This zodiac birth sign functions at the height of its powers in careers that are in some way related to service. They are capable of great self-denial if they think their work justifies it.

This zodiac birth sign also rules health. The nervous system is especially significant for Virgos , so they must learn not to exhaust their body energies by worrying, fretting or over-working, or nervous tension and stress are particularly likely to be experienced by those born under this zodiac birth sign. Nevertheless, this sign has a marvellous physical resistance to disease, once the mind develops discipline. And Virgos can become very effective agents for healing, exercising a special influence on those who are ill. As this zodiac birth sign is connected to issues of health, it is unusual to find a Virgo who is not mindful of their eating and exercise habits and general well-being.

Because this zodiac birth sign is of the element Earth, Virgos admire material progress. They like good food and are fond of comfort and good clothes. Virgo can be exceptionally critical of appearances, both theirs and that of others, and may benefit from learning to refrain from gossip or chattering about other people who do not seem to approach their own particular standard of appearance.

This zodiac birth sign is impressed by subtlety ,eloquence and finesse - they are easily critical of brash behaviour, loud voices or sloppy speech, tawdry clothes, unkempt appearances, messy environments and so forth ,and lack of manners for example. Similarly, this zodiac birth sign is apt to display their affections in an understated way and may come across as somewhat aloof or enigmatic- overt displays of emotion and fuss are simply not things Virgo like. Many Virgos are actually rather indifferent to love adventures and often remain voluntarily unattached ,usually because no one ever quite seems to measure up to their standards of perfection!

The Zodiac Birth Sign of Libra: "I Balance"
September 23 - October 22

libra This zodiac birth sign is ruled by the planet Venus, giving Librans a charm and grace in expression, combined with a desire to make a good impression and to be popular. Those born under this zodiac birth sign also tend to seek the approval of others, but are not inclined to compromise their principles in order to get it, for risking any kind of humiliation is something this zodiac birth sign would simply never do.

Because this zodiac birth sign is a cardinal sign, Librans are concerned with the present and will initiate activities, rather than wait for them to come along of their own accord. But people born under this zodiac birth sign usually seek the cooperation of others, rather than continuing things alone. Librans have a special need for companionship in order to feel fulfilled, but will usually evidence a strong need to maintain their own individuality within their relationships. Marriage and partnerships are certainly a primary concern of this zodiac birth sign , and a single Libran will rarely be a contented one.

This zodiac birth sign is also known for it's taste for the finer things in life - Librans like the best of things, whether this be food, clothing or objects for the home. They have a strong sense for aesthetics, so are drawn to things that please the eye. Similarly, people born under this zodiac birth sign are usually rather mindful about the impression they create through their personal appearance and home , so tend to put a good deal of effort into how they look, and arrange their home in a pleasing, creative manner.

Those born under this zodiac birth sign are invariably rather sociable people . Their natural charm , pleasant demeanour and diplomatic nature make it easy for them to get along with others, and for others to warm to them. People with this zodiac birth sign are also inclined to be peacemakers, for they can't abide disharmony or tension - they will quickly try to smooth ruffled feathers, and for this reason, others naturally turn to them for help in resolving their own troubles. Librans have a knack for objectively considering an issue from various angles , so can naturally appreciate various points of view and possibilities- always helpful when trying to resolve interpersonal differences, but potentially problematic in their own life : this zodiac birth sign is the great procrastinator of the zodiac ! Indeed, this zodiac birth sign can get so confused about what choice to make that they give up trying to even make a decision in favour of "sitting on the fence". Libran's would benefit from trying to be more decisive.

This zodiac birth sign has a strong sense of justice and fair play, and contrary to what has often been said about those born under this zodiac birth sign, Librans are anything but lazy. Since Libra is in an Air sign, those born under it are rather intellectual and actively seek knowledge, new ideas, and mental stimulation. This zodiac birth sign is especially adept at analyzing what is occurring in the society around them. All matters pertaining to psychology and human relationships are usually of deep interest to this zodiac birth sign, and for this reason, Librans make good counsellors and often seek to help people for their personal problems.

As this zodiac birth sign is ruled by Venus, Librans rarely express anger, but when they do it is as though a tornado has gone through a room - they leave nothing unsaid. They will tell you exactly what you said 20 years ago and under what circumstances you said it ! Yet, like the tornado, their anger soon spends itself , usually leaving them feeling rather shaken and ill.

The Zodiac Birth Sign SCORPIO: "I Desire"
October 23-November 21

scorpio In many ways, Scorpio is the most powerful of all the zodiac birth signs. More than any other sign, Scorpio deals with the processes of fundamental transformation on all levels. This transformation can be on a high or low plane, depending on the motivation behind the change. However, as a rule, this zodiac birth sign works to improve the status quo.

Those born under this zodiac birth sign possess power, will, and intense emotional desires. Their life can be a constant struggle to conquer desire through the creative use of their will.

Since this zodiac birth sign is strongly related to the desire principle and the sex drive, there is tremendous emotional force behind the Scorpio's romantic involvements. If this gets out of control, it can lead to possessiveness, jealousy, and even violence. No zodiac birth sign can be so potent for good or evil as Scorpio.

People born under this zodiac birth sign act with all their power, not just some of it, and because of this tendency it is very important that they set out on the proper course right from the beginning. This zodiac birth sign never deals with life in a superficial way, and whatever Scorpio becomes involved with is generally of serious consequence. Sometimes their desire to do everything perfectly makes them unable to delegate responsibility. Scorpio can work like a man possessed to get something done, and tackle their projects seeking perfection in all details. This zodiac birth sign has a huge capacity for hard work, but can just as easily overwork themselves and suffer burn out in the process.

Ardent defenders of justice, even in the face of death, people with this zodiac birth sign have tremendous staying power and will see any matter through to the bitter end, regardless of how much effort this requires or what sacrifices are involved.

Although people born under this zodiac birth sign tend to despise weakness in themselves -and do not like to see it in others- they are often very generous and compassionate people who will extend themselves above and beyond the call of duty in order to help someone else. But this zodiac birth sign expects, however, that once that person has been helped, they will stand independently and continue to help themselves.

Scorpios are not always diplomatic, because they believe in expressing their ideas and feelings with unfiltered truthfulness. They much prefer to remain silent than offer a watered down version of their personal opinions and emotions.

This zodiac birth sign is commonly known for its inclination toward secrecy . Woe betide those who give away Scorpio's secrets or incur their wrath. In any argument or battle they will not budge one inch , so anyone who takes on this zodiac birth sign in contentious discussion or physical battle should ensure they are well fortified.

Scorpio's are very curious people - they have an intense drive to investigate the nature of things and discover the causes behind any outward manifestation. This zodiac birth sign will not stop until they have properly and deeply understood something, right down to the core level. For this reason, they make great investigators of all kinds. And with their strong intuition and inclination toward penetrating mysteries, it is of no surprise that so many people born under this zodiac birth sign are drawn to read and study subjects that are in some way "mysterious". Metaphysical, esoteric and occult studies of all kind frequently appeal to this sign.

When spiritually developed, people with this zodiac birth sign derive immense power from their ability to tap the fundamental, creative, regenerative forces of nature. And so their accomplishments can sometimes seem rather miraculous.

The Zodiac Birth Sign SAGITTARIUS: "I See"
November 22-December 21

sagittarius Those born under this zodiac birth sign are known for their honesty and straightforwardness, together with their love for liberty and freedom. Energetic and naturally outgoing, people with this zodiac birth sign achieve their goals through the power of positive thinking. And since the beneficent planet Jupiter rules this zodiac birth sign, Saggitarians commonly experience the appearance of unexpected help when they need it, even if it only arrives at the eleventh hour.

Those with this zodiac birth sign are naturally inclined to serious thinking, and tend to be concerned with the well-being of society as a whole, as well as with their own lives. Even if they are uneducated in the formal sense, they are perfectly at home with abstract ideas, principles and beliefs. Individuals born under this zodiac birth sign place the spiritual law and the ethics to which they subscribe above personality. They can be rather zealous in their spiritual or religious zeal, to the extent of overlooking the more personal side of life.

This zodiac birth sign is concerned with honesty, justice and generosity, because of their concern for the approval and harmony of the society in which they live. However, some Saggitarians can incline towards a tendency to be rather narrow-minded and bigoted if the social standards to which they subscribe are limited ones.

Although idealism is strongly marked in this zodiac birth sign, less evolved Saggitarians may be religious fanatics or blind adherents to established philosophies and dogmas. This zodiac birth sign can produce individuals who would be wise to try and learn to advance beyond the lowest common denominator of the thinking of the current social, religious, and philosophical groups in the society to which they belong.

This zodiac birth sign does not have a subtle approach to life really- they tend to jump to conclusions quickly, often without taking all the factors into consideration. And being so straightforward, people born under this zodiac birth sign don't mince their words ; they will tell you the undiluted truth, so a thick skin can be needed around a Saggitarian!

Saggitarians frequently have an ability to intuit what will happen in the future, through their understanding of current trends of thought. Sometimes, their insights border on being premonitory. People with this zodiac birth sign are especially aware that what appears in civilization is the result of man's thinking and motivation. Those born under this zodiac birth sign can expand into previously undreamed-of realms because they have a strong desire to viscerally know, to experience, to try their wings, and to experience excitement through adventure. Travel , geographically or mentally, or both, are associated with this zodiac birth sign, as is a natural spontaneity , strong creative drive and love of humour and fun.

The Zodiac Birth Sign CAPRICORN: "I Use"
December 22-January 19

capricorn Those born under this zodiac birth sign will rarely be content merely to keep body and soul together. They have a persistent feeling that they must develop into something. They need some kind of accomplishment to push towards, some property to look after, or some obligation to fulfil, which may relate to business, politics, or the social or intellectual fields.

People with this zodiac birth sign have highly developed intuitive faculties and can use these in their struggle to achieve personal independence and financial security. Like the symbol for this zodiac sign, the mountain goat, Capricorns are steadfast and surefooted. They like law and order and can be rather dogmatic in their view that a rule is a rule and an order is an order. Since this zodiac birth sign is of the Element Earth, everything has to be sensible for Capricorns.

Capricorns have a sound knowledge and understanding of practical affairs, but not through formal study so much as through reading articles and talking to others. Those with this zodiac birth sign incline towards prudent habits which predispose them to utilize all that they see, hear or learn, but they are rarely students per se.

People with this zodiac birth sign are never deterred by things that might stand in the way to their climb to the top. Capricorns have an extreme capacity for hard work, which tends to be linked to their notion that success means material security - something that this zodiac birth sign will work and plan for diligently.

This zodiac birth sign has great faith in its own personal power, and tends to be worldly and careful. Capricorns won't ask for any special favours or concessions and drive a hard, but fair bargain. Those born under this zodiac birth sign have a knack for finding solutions to the most difficult problems and are very successful trouble-shooters.

Neat and methodical in their work, this zodiac birth sign can also produce people who may be nothing short of slave drivers at home ! Capricorn feels that their household should be managed with precision, with everything in perfect working order. This love for organization makes this zodiac birth sign well suited to executive roles - it is unlikely that any Capricorn would be able to endure a subordinate role for any length of time. They may well appear as docile as lambs, but they can easily step into the boss's shoes without snapping a finger if the opportunity arises. Certainly, those with this zodiac birth sign never voluntarily step backwards. They move up by alternating security and ambition as their goals. Capricorns also have a strong desire for money. They fear being dependent on anybody else, especially when they become old, and this need for security can cause this zodiac birth sign to have rather frugal instincts, which taken to the extreme, can make them stingy or a little greedy.

This zodiac birth sign gives the impression of being far older and mature when they are young, and far younger when they are old ! And it is not unusual for Capricorn to take a while to establish a strong sense of personal identity and belonging in the world - this zodiac birth sign can often be a "late starter" , with ambitious intentions not truly rearing their head until well into adulthood.

Because Saturn rules this zodiac birth sign, Capricorn individuals can be rather serious, solitary, melancholic people. They are not inclined towards frivolous fun, but do possess a dry, deadpan sense of humour. They tend to think and act on the principle that the world is a place in which every person is for himself. Yet those with this zodiac birth sign actually have sensitive personalities and want very much to be appreciated.

The Zodiac Birth Sign AQUARIUS: "I Know"
January 20-February 18

aquarius Individuals born under the zodiac birth sign of brotherhood and fraternity have as their symbol the water-bearer, who spills out to mankind the life-force and spiritual energy. Since the planet Uranus governs this zodiac birth sign, friendship and companionship are very important to Aquarians, and those whom they befriend have their total, unwavering loyalty.

Born under a fixed zodiac birth sign, Aquarians can have rather eccentric temperaments and are usually rather determined and stubborn. They sometimes feel that those who are listening to them are not very receptive, or are unable to comprehend their ideas, so those born under this zodiac birth sign tend to get annoyed when people don't understand them. Then they invariably argue, and when they do, they stir up a good deal of opposition from others. They have a cool capability of discarding these people from their intellectual circle.
