The 12 Zodiac Signs: Date, Symbol and Common Traits

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.

Have fun with the zodiac signs and meanings listed below.

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.

Zodiac Signs and Meanings

1. Aries – The Ram

March 21 – April 19

A symbol of determination, action, initiative, and leadership.

Aries
people are creative, adaptive, and insightful. They can also be strong-willed and spontaneous (sometimes to a fault). Aries people can be driven and are very ambitious often making them over-achievers in anything they set their mind to tackle. Aries are fire signs, and so too is their personality. They may be quick to anger, but don’t take it personally, it’s just their fiery, passionate personalities showing through.

Aries signs have an excellent sense of humor, and they get along with almost everyone at the party (and they DO know how to party). Aries can be impatient, but we love them anyway because they are devoted friends, lovers, and family members – they are loyal to the end and will fight for their causes (usually supporting the underdog).

Few Noteworthy Traits

  • Power
  • Force
  • Drive
  • Energy
  • Virility
  • Protection
  • Fearlessness

2. Taurus – The Bull

April 20 – May 20

A symbol of confidence and strength.

Taurus zodiac signs and meanings, like the animal that represents them, is all about strength, stamina, and will. Stubborn by nature, the Taurus will stand his/her ground to the bitter end (sometimes even irrationally so). But that’s okay because the Taurus is also a loving, sympathetic and appreciative sign.

The Taurus is very understanding and when we need someone to unburden ourselves to, we often share our deepest fears with the Taurians of the zodiac. Taurians are very patient, practical and efficient, they are excellent in matters of business and are also wonderful instructors/teachers. Although initially, they may have their own best interest at heart, they are ultimately & endlessly generous with their time, possessions and love.

Few Noteworthy Traits

  • Stability
  • Virility
  • Strength
  • Strength
  • Stamina
  • Provision
  • Confidence
  • Fertility
  • Helpfulness
  • Determination

3. Gemini – The Twins

May 21 – June 20

signifies prosperity, success and high status
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.

Few Noteworthy Traits

  • Connectedness
  • Sharing
  • Understanding
  • Psychic/Telepathic Bonds
  • Affinity
