In Western Astrology the year has twelve specific signs (called Zodiac Signs), each of which has different personality traits and general characteristics.

The time and day on which a person is born determines what sign influences them most. By learning about zodiac sign traits, personalities and characteristics we can come to understand ourselves (and others) a whole lot better.

This understanding can help make our personal and professional relationships far more fulfilling and successful!

Zodiac Planets

Pythagoras likened the movement of celestial bodies to a kind of celestial symphony that resonates throughout the spheres and effects our lives. Your personal song is unique to where the planets were when you entered this mortal coil. Astrologers study this melody and use it to divine the “score” of your life.

Here are the zodiac signs ruling planets according to Classical tradition:

Leo: Ruled by the sun. Attributes: upbeat personality, good luck
Cancer: Ruled by the Moon. Attributes: wanderlust; emotive
Gemini & Virgo: Ruled by Mercury. Attributes: transformation, communication
Libra & Taurus: Ruled by Venus. Attributes: Romance, fortune
Aries: Ruled by Mars. Attributes: Strength, durability
Sagittarius & Pisces: Ruled by Jupiter. Attributes: Humorous, serendipity
Capricorn & Aquarius: Ruled by Saturn. Attributes: Moody; melancholy

Adaptations of the Zodiac Planets in Modern Systems:

Aquarius: Ruled by Uranus. Attributes: Creativity and transformation
Pisces: Ruled by Neptune. Attributes: Sensitivity
Scorpio: Ruled by Pluto. Attributes: Fate and change
Virgo: Ruled by Ceres. Attributes: Sympathy; Nurturing

That’s a lot of information and we have only scraped the surface. An Astrologer also considers the horizon line, angles formed by the planets in relationship to each other (conjunction, opposition, retrograde, etc.) and lunar nodes just to name a few.

Whew!

OK. Is this Zodiac Signs stuff really “real”?

Unless you plan on becoming a professional Astronomer you probably have some questions by now, like what the heck does a 5,000 year old divinatory system have to do with my reality?

Truth be told, people use astrology every day for all manner of things including choosing stocks, starting a new business, getting perspectives on relationships and moving into new homes or jobs.

In fact, J.P. Morgan was quoted as saying, “Millionaires don’t use astrology, billionaires do!”

Now, we can’t promise you fame and fortune, but having a good chart that’s diligently interpreted may, indeed, help you change your fate.

Why use Western Astrology & its Zodiac for this purpose? Unless you grew up or lived in the Far East it can be difficult for the Western mind to fully grasp the symbolism and meaning behind Vedic and Chinese Astrology systems. All three approaches have strong cultural overtones, and for Astrology to be useful it must also be meaningful to you.

Finally, please remember that like any divination system Astrology has its limitations. It is not likely to end hunger or create world peace, nor can it tell you how to make the perfect PB&J.

It’s not an exact art.

So as you review your zodiac sign traits, personality and characteristics, use what resonates most with you at that moment. Come back to the information at a later date as what you take away from Astronomy transforms as your life changes.

In the wise words of Theodore Roosevelt, “Keep your eyes on the stars, and your feet on the ground.”
