Half the fun to astrology is learning about all the different zodiac signs and meanings for each. There’s something exciting and wonderful about reading the characteristics of our zodiac signs. We all smile and say “Yes, that’s me!” or “Wow, that really describes my personality!”

When we look at our zodiac sign dates (that is, the date we were born indicating our zodiac signs and meanings) we are looking at our sun sign. Sun signs refer to the position of the sun upon the time of our birth.

Below, I have offered the twelve zodiac signs and meanings along with a summary of characteristics for each.

As you continue to study astrology, you can begin to associate these zodiac traits to your co-workers, friends and family – even strangers! Once you know the date a person is born and the zodiac signs and meanings associated with his/her birthday, you have some amazing deductive capabilities at your disposal.

Astrology is a window into unseen realms. It helps us learn who we are and others too. Further, it serves as a tool to enhance our understanding and compassion towards others.

For example, if your co-worker snaps at you in irritation and seems cranky this week, you may want to consult the zodiac signs and meanings for an explanation. If you find your co-worker is a Sagittarius, you know she’s usually pretty easy-going, so something major might be going on in her life. With a little more research, you may find that certain planets moving through her sign can cause your Sagittarian co-worker to be in a bit of a tailspin.

Knowing these details gives you more patience and compassion. Instead of barking back at your co-worker, you can empathize and understand that she’s just going through a phase – nothing personal.

Have fun with the zodiac signs and meanings below listed. Use them as a basic guide to help you understand the various personalities of the people in your life. But please, this is only a guide – I encourage you to study further and continue to gather your own knowledge on the fascinating subject of astrology.

Meaning – when one considers twins – one must consider their duality as much as their unity.
Flexibility, balance and adaptability are the keywords for the Gemini. They are quick to grasp the meaning of a situation and act on it, often with positive effects. They tend to have a duality to their nature, and can sometimes be tough to predict how they will react. They can turn from hot to cold and may be prone to noticeable mood swings. However, they are generous signs with tendencies of being affectionate, and imaginative. They also inspire others easily as they seem to naturally motivate themselves – their charisma and accomplishments are infectious. Geminians are very supportive, and are especially good at promotions, sales, and driving hard bargains.

Cancerians love home-life, family and domestic settings. They are traditionalists, and enjoy operating on a fundamental level. They love history, and are fascinated with the beginnings of things (heraldry, ancestry, etc.). The moon is their ruler, so they can be a bit of a contradiction and sometimes moody. However, they are conservative, so they’ll be apt to hide their moods from others altogether. They have a reputation for being fickle, but they’ll tell you that isn’t true, and it’s not. Cancerians make loyal, sympathetic friends. However Cancerians need alone time, and when they retreat, let them do so on their terms.
