The term “Pisces” is the Latin translation of the original Greek term “Ichtyes”, which literally means, “the fishes”. As such, the zodiac star sign Pisces is symbolized by two fish swimming toward each other. And this Mutable Water Sign nature of the two fish is precisely the personality of Pisces. Like other Water Signs, Pisces is very intuitive, and being ruled by Neptune aids to their dreamy, psychic personality. Their mutable nature invites them to always be trying out new things, and unfortunately sometimes that means new people as well at a moment’s notice. Artistic, creative, spontaneous, and romantic are all words that are used to describe the depth that can be found under the Pisces star.
The term Aquarius is the Latin translation of the original Greek term “Hydrochoos” which literally means “Water Pourer”. In English the symbol for Aquarius is Water Bearer, and this represents the expansive open mind of the Fixed Air Sign of Aquarius. Aquarius may be the least judgmental person you will ever meet, they are also strong seekers of the truth in all experiences.
Ruled by Uranus, Aquarius is also a little bit on the eccentric side, and often possesses an intellect that is ranked at the genius level. This is a sign that will take some time to warm up to, but once you do, their fixed nature will have them smitten with you for life.
As the Cardinal Earth Sign, Capricorn is often considered the most successful sign of the zodiac. Its name is a compound of the Latin terms capra which literally means she-goat. Its original Greek term was Aegocerus, meaning “goat horned”, thus making The Goat the symbol that represents the zodiac sign of Capricorn. People born under this zodiac star are often very successful because as Cardinal Signs they are great initiators, motivators, and leaders. When you add those traits to the hardworking and responsible traits of the Earth Signs, you make for a very successful combination.
Capricorns are so grounded in the Earth that they are also the most traditional and conservative of the zodiac signs, so a big complaint of Capricorns is they can be a little on the low drama boring side. But on the upside you can always count on your dependable Capricorn friend to get you out of just about any pickle you should find yourself in.
The constellation for the zodiac star of Sagittarius is translated as “The Archer” from its Latin origination, and from the term “Toxotes” in Greek mythology. This Mutable Fire Sign then is one that embodies the energy, agility, bravery, and enthusiasm of a skilled archer with fire beneath his arrow. Sagittarius is very smart, and the mutable nature of Sagittarius breathes fire into their thrill for adventure. As such, Sagittarius does not like to stay put too often, and if required to, expects the experience to be spontaneous and fun.
Boredom with a Sagittarius is the enemy, and this mutable sign will move on quickly with the first whiff of it. The upside of course is that you will always have a blast when you are with a Sagittarius.
The term for the zodiac sign of Scorpio is derived from the Greek term Skorpios. The constellation of Scorpio is in the shape of a scorpio, a mysterious sea creature with a fierce stinger. You never know which way Scorpio is going, but you know you also never want to be on their bad side if they are heading in a different direction than you.
As a Fixed Water Sign, Scorpio is one of the most psychic and empathic signs of the zodiac, which makes them great detectives or very successful in fields that require analysis and investigation. Their intensity comes from being ruled by Pluto, the planet of transformation. With Scorpio, it’s either big or it isn’t at all, so expect a wild ride and one you will likely remember forever when you ride with a Scorpio.
The zodiac term we know as “Libra” is derived from the Latin word “The Balance” and the Greek term “Zygos”. Originally however, Libra was a constellation known as “The Claws” that were attached to the Scorpio constellation. Upon the discovery of the Autumnal Equinox, and the balancing of the seasons with the transition of Fall, the zodiac sign of Libra was also revolutionized. In the Fall, the equality of day and night is discovered, and this is the embodiment of the true Libra personality.
Balance and harmony is what Libra is all about. These are the people that are smoothing over fights and drama, and establishing, encouraging, and supporting relationships and partnerships around their Self all of the time. As the Cardinal Air Sign, Libra will be the most charming, intelligent, and sociable person you will ever meet, and ruled by Venus they also embody all of the finer things in life.
The term “Virgo” comes from the Latin word Virgin which is derived from the Greek term Parthenos. As the Mutable Earth Sign, Virgo is the most flexible and grounded person that you know. Virgo is discriminating, grounded, organized, and an excellent leader in their own quiet way. You won’t see a lot of drama from a Virgo, but you will see a very careful thinker who always goes through every task with a clear mind, and a laser sharp focus. Though they may not be overly wealthy, Virgo is also very good with money, and knows exactly how to manage whatever resources come their way, so they are rarely in need. It may take you some time to get true love from this down to Earth sign, but once you do, you will have a friend for life.
Leo is the Latin term for “lion” which is translated from the Greek “Leon” to create the Fixed Fire Sign of Leo! Here is a personality that is injected with fire, and enthusiasm and excitement are always near those born under the Leo star.
This is a sign that is ruled by the Sun, which translates easily into their sunny personality. And Leo likes to be the Sun wherever they go, craving attention, flattery, and good times with great people. Always on fire in whatever project or relationship they are in, you can always be sure that when a Leo is around, there is never a dull moment.
In the zodiac world, the word “Cancer” is the Latin word for the Greek term Karkinos, or Crab in English. Rules by the Moon this Cardinal Water Sign however is anything but crabby, unless you are the first to strike in battle, then watch out! Otherwise however this emotional Water Sign loves and loves deeply, and will be a friend for life if you honor them with the truth.
This sign also rules fertility, the family, and feels every mood that swings their way deeper than any other sign. The true nature of this sign however is much like the actual crab. Cancer greets the world with a strong personality, a tough exterior shell. But on the inside? They are the biggest softies you will ever meet.
The word “Gemini” is a Latin word translated from the Greek word “Didymoi” which means “The Twins”. Those born under this star sign sometimes seem to have a double personality as a result, and they are always moving from one frame of mind to another very quickly.
Gemini is the Mutable Air Sign, and this gives them an abundance of energy, intellect, and communication skills. It is not often that you will meet a quiet Gemini, as this sign cannot bear boredom, and are very flexible when it comes to rolling with the punches life throws their way.
The name Taurus comes from the Greek word “Tauros” which means “Bull”. Taurus is a fixed Earth Sign and this makes them the most grounded and loyal friend you will ever have. Fixed Signs by nature are very committed to everything they do, and Earth Signs even more so.
Grounded in Mother Earth, Taurus is practical, responsible, logical, hardworking, and very loyal. Taurus also loves to have a great time, and their sense of humor is contagious. Taurus is also ruled by Venus, which means they are anything but boring and love spreading beauty, sensuality, and love to those around them wherever they go.
As a Cardinal Fire Sign, Aries is a born leader with fire beneath their wings in every endeavor they pursue. Being the boss is a favourite activity for Aries, and those born under this sign love a good challenge that allows them to do just that.
Cardinal signs are born leaders and initiators, so the thrill of the chase of any good project or friend is always very exciting for Aries. Success drives Aries, and Aries certainly has the energy to put forth the action required to see success in every project to the end.
