Understanding The 12 Zodiac Signs and Their Symbolic Traits

Understanding Zodiac Signs and Their Symbolic Traits

7. Libra – The Scales

September 23 – October 22

Charming, harmonious, and filled to the brim with energy.

As their zodiac signs and meanings would indicate, Libra’s are all about balance, justice, equanimity, and stability. They easily surround themselves with harmony and beauty, but sometimes go to extremes to do so if their goals are unreasonable or unhealthy.

With Venus as their ruling planet, Libra’s are very understanding, caring, and often the champion of underdogs.

They have keen intuitions, but often don’t give themselves enough credit for their perceptions. They can be quiet and shy if not persuaded to come out of their shell. Ironically and in spite of their introverted nature, they make excellent debaters, often proving a point from out of seemingly nowhere.

Few Noteworthy Traits

  • Charming
  • Energetic
  • Positive
  • Good Communication


8. Scorpio – The Scorpion

October 23 – November 21

Extreme, powerful, elusive

The Scorpio is often misunderstood. These personalities are bold and are capable of executing massive enterprises with cool control and confidence. They can surmount seemingly all obstacles when they put their minds to the task, and they have unshakable focus when the situation calls for it.

Regardless of their bold nature, they are often secretive, but they are always observing behind their withdrawn manner.

Being associated with solar animals, (the scorpion) they are not withdrawn for long, and when they come out again they do so with force, vigor, and determination. It is true, Scorpio can be argumentative and pack a powerful sting, but that’s simply because they see all opposition as a healthy challenge.

Few Noteworthy Traits

  • Sex
  • Control
  • Transition
  • Death/Dying
  • Passion
  • Treachery
  • Protection
  • Defensiveness
  • Solitary/Being Alone


9. Sagittarius – The Centaur

November 22 – December 21

Loyal, philosophical, and impatient.

Here we have the philosopher among the zodiac signs and meanings. Like the Scorpio, they have a great ability for focus and can be very intense. However, they must channel their energy or they will waste time and wear themselves out going in too many directions at once. They are not very patient and expect quick results.

However, when encountered with failure they make extreme comeback’s often against incredible odds. They make loyal friends and lovers, but they do not handle commitment well as they refuse to be tied down while chasing philosophical pursuits.

Few Noteworthy Traits

  • Inspired
  • Wandering
  • Optimistic

10. Capricorn – The Goat

December 22 – January 19

Strong, patient, stable, and a reliable influence

Capricorns are also philosophical signs and are highly intelligent too. They apply their knowledge to practical matters and strive to maintain stability and order. They are good organizers, and they achieve their goals by purposeful, systematic means. They are very intuitive, although they don’t share this trait with others freely.

They do not deal well with opposition or criticism but a healthy Capricorn will often shrug off negative comments towards their character.

They are patient and persevering – they know they can accomplish any task as long as they follow their plan step-by-step. Capricorn’s have broad shoulders, and typically take on other’s problems with aplomb. Ironically, they rarely share their own problems and tend to go through bouts of inner gloom after a spell of dwelling on these problems.

Few Noteworthy Traits

  • Strong
  • Patient
  • Reliable
  • Stable
