The 12 Zodiac Signs and Why You Should Learn Astrology (Part One)

You decide to sit outside to relax and clear your mind and you see thousands of stars across the sky. You ponder about how the planets and stars affect our lives from millions of miles away. The study of how these massive entities affect our lives and our future is called astrology. Astrology is thousands of years old and is one of the oldest sciences in the world. Astrology is ingrained in many cultures around the world, including China, India, and the ancient Mayan civilization. Astrology is the study and analysis of the projection of the position of various planets, the moon, and the sun at the time of birth. If you line up the position of the planets, moon, and the sun with your date of birth, you will discover your zodiac sign.

What is a Zodiac sign?

A zodiac sign informs you about your strengths and weaknesses. You will discover your personality traits, likes, and dislikes. I would advise you to learn about your zodiac sign, because through your zodiac sign you can learn more about yourself. If you thoroughly study your zodiac sign, then you can find weaknesses that you have and improve yourself. Not only can you improve yourself, but you can improve your relationships whether it is a romantic, friendship, or family relationship. You can ask for their date of birth then match the birth date with the corresponding zodiac sign. This will open a world of information to you about the person. You will learn about their personality traits, strengths, and weaknesses, and this will give you the tools that you need to have a positive relationship with them.

Just as there are 12 months in a year, there are 12 zodiac signs. Here is a list of 12 zodiac signs and what they determine about your personality.

Aries

If you were born on or between March 21 – April 19, then you fall under the zodiac sign of Aries. Aries falls under the element of fire. The color associated with Aries is red. Aries are known for having a lot of confidence in themselves and are enthusiastic about challenges that come their way. If they are in a negative situation, they look at their predicament optimistically. Aries are known for having the courage to take on challenges that most people fear. The combination of strengths that Aries have make them excellent candidates to be leaders.

Even though Aries has leadership qualities that doesn’t mean that they don’t have flaws. Aries are often short-tempered, impatient, and if you don’t agree with them or don’t finish a task to meet their standard, they can become aggressive. Aries often struggle to wait and want to work on their goals as soon as possible. If something delays their goals, they are likely to become impatient and short-tempered.

One weakness that a Taurus has is that they are often stubborn. For example, if you try to get one to quit their job to work on a business, they are not likely to do it. A Taurus fears going outside of their comfort zone and venturing into the unknown. As a result, they stay static and don’t improve their life. They will stay away from accomplishing their goals if it changes their way of living. Another weakness that a Taurus has is that they are possessive. They become attached to material objects and refuse to share. If they lose something, it will take them a while to calm down from panicking about the loss.

Cancers like to work on hobbies that require them to use their imagination. Cancers typically like to paint, craft, or write songs.

One weakness of a Cancer is that they are shy and insecure. They don’t meet new people so they miss out on opportunities or information that they could have gained. They dislike attention, so they rarely get the chance to show their talents to the world. Cancers are shy so when they are angry they are passive aggressive. If someone does something that they don’t like rather than addressing the situation head on, they will attempt to resolve the problem passive aggressively.

A Leo is an outstanding leader because of the combination of characteristics. A Leo is loyal to their team and will fight for the respect of their team as well as themselves.

One weakness that a Leo has is that they are self-centered and their confidence often turns into arrogance. They think that their way is the best way, so they ignore the advice of others. This keeps them with a closed mind and limited knowledge, so this holds them back from reaching their full potential. They like to be the center of attention.

Virgos make good statisticians and financial advisers because of their detailed planning and attention to detail.

One weakness that a Virgo has is that they overwork themselves. This often leads to stress, headaches, and sometimes insomnia. No matter how much work they have done, they feel as if they have to keep working, and it is difficult to convince them otherwise. Another weakness that Virgos have is that they overthink.

One weakness that Libras often have is that they dislike confrontation. While it is understandable that they don’t like confrontation, sometimes it is necessary.

Unfortunately, this holds them back from their goal of living in a society without injustice. This often leads to them developing a grudge that lasts for months, if not years.
