Personality Traits for the Twelve Signs


 
Aries


    Positive:
Assertive
Independent
Enthusiastic
Honest
Energetic     Aries is a cardinal fire sign ruled by the planet Mars, the planet of action and aggression. Aries is the pioneer of the zodiac. Aries are independent, aggressive, impulsive,  head strong, alert, impatient, argumentative, very active and very physical. Aries likes to be at the head of things. Their ambition is to be number one. You have masses of energy and courage and will rush in where angels fear to tread, for the Arian ego can be rather overbearing. Aries rules the head. Undue optimism, or impatience and desire for self-aggrandisement can result in wasted effort or even severe setbacks and disappointment.
     Negative:
Self-Centred
Augmentative
Domineering
Impatient
Wilful

Stones: Bloodstone, ochre, diamond, ruby
Keywords: Self, ego, imitative, action, courageous, pioneering, adventurous, freedom-loving, independent.

    They accomplish many things simply because of their restless energy. They need to learn how to make constructive use of their energetic efforts. The typical Aries urge is to take on more than can be done reasonably well. Though others may find it difficult to keep pace with an Aries, they are attracted to their animation and spirited personality. Arians are great organisers, full of flair and originality, although usually lacking discipline and the capacity for prolonged effort (minions must be found to do the boring work!). You are intuitive and articulate, with the capacity to inspire others, especially in projects which have a clear outcome and do not require a long lead-time.

 


Taurus


    Positive:
Stable
Affectionate
Generous
Methodical
Sensuous     Taurus is a fixed earth sign ruled by the planet Venus, the planet of love and beauty. Taurus is practical, down to earth, hard working, stubborn, sensual, very set in their ways. They have an appreciation for the finer things in life and are willing to work to get them. A lover of music and the arts. They are gifted with good common sense where money is concerned.  Slow to anger but when angered, its best to wait until they cool down. Taurus rules the throat, giving a powerful, often beautiful voice. The influence of Venus opens up a world of musical talent and appreciation, so Taureans are good singers and musicians, or at least, love music and can be a force on the business side of music.
     Negative:
Stubborn
Self-Indulgent
Possessive

    Taureans stubbornly cling to their own ideas and habits and may fail to take advantage of new ideas or situations, because they cannot see their practical use. They have to understand that while tenacity and a stable temperament yield reward in many endeavours, tolerance and flexibility are the best assets when it comes to personal relationships. You also like to potter around the garden, and delight in other outdoor activities: picnics, hikes, trips to botanical gardens or the zoo. You tend to be rather subdued, but you have a fine sense of humour, and enjoy your social life. Health issues are often focused on problems to do with the throat and neck.

 

 
Gemini


    Positive:
Versatile
Stimulating
Sociable
Quick-Witted
Curious     Gemini is a mutable air sign ruled by the planet Mercury, the planet of intellect and communication. Gemini is the sign of logic and reason. They are versatile, witty, have a quick response, and have multiple interests. This is the sign of writers, teachers, lecturers and broadcasters. Where you find Gemini in a chart is where you find flexibility towards that area of life. Gemini is the sign of The Twins. - There are two of everything. You really have little faith in yourself, which you mask with ironic wit or sarcasm, but in truth you can use your flexible mind to better yourself in a surprising number of ways. You spend more time talking than eating, so you are able to stay fairly slim.
     Negative:
Restless
Fickle
Flippant
Inconsistent
Shallow

    Using their communicative skills, Gemini's adapt to any situation they encounter. However, they must learn to speak with candour instead of simply repeating what others want to hear. Gemini's have clever tongues and develop an amazing ability to obscure the facts with stimulating and imaginative talk. You love zooming around, running right left and centre. As a source of information you are unparalleled and you love to keep in touch with your friends, neighbours and indeed anyone who is on your wavelength. Gemini talents include design, interior decoration, arts and crafts, magic and illusion, and music. You enjoy agile sports: gymnastics, bicycling, swimming, and so on. Favourites are tennis, racquetball and similar games involving a partner.

 

 
Cancer

   

Positive:
Protective

Imaginative

Caring

Intuitive

Nostalgic
    Cancer is a cardinal water sign ruled by the Moon. Cancer is the most sensitive sign of the zodiac. They are psychic, empathic, and extremely sentimental. With a strong attachment to family, ancestry and tradition, there is a strong need for roots. Cancers need a place to come home to. Known as the nest builder of the zodiac. Affected by the changing Moon, this can cause Cancers to be extremely moody. Being at the mercy of their moods makes it difficult for them to differentiate what they feel from what they think. Can be sympathy seekers. The emblem for Cancer is the Crab, a creature with a very hard shell which protects a soft interior. The crab walks sideways, which is how the Cancerian skirts around a problem until forced to take it on with gritty determination and a creative flair. The crab's large claws hang on to its possessions for dear life, just as the Cancerian collects things to beautify the environment and bravely defends the home turf.
     

Negative:
Touchy

Possessive

Devious

Manipulative

Tenacious

 

Symbol: The Crab

Lucky Day: Monday

Lucky Number: 7

Element: Water
Modality: Cardinal
Ruling Planet: Moon
Part of Body:
Stones: Crystal, moonstone
Keywords: Mother, home, sensitivity, nurturance, protectiveness.
Business Types: Staples, domestic goods, hospitality, real estate.
    Cancerians get things done through the power of their emotional commitment. Not only do they aggressively work to accomplish the goals inspired by their own feelings, they also know how to appeal to the emotions of others. By making other people feel like family members, Cancerians effectively motivate others to get things done. They have to learn how to reach an emotional balance since they tend to be overly sensitive and moody. Cancer is also good with money and generally takes a long-term view. The main thing to remember is not to let the powerful, turbulent emotions of the moment crowd out your normally rational judgement. Your intuitions are reliable and should be trusted; you may even have natural psychic powers, which may be developed, given the right circumstances.

 

 
Leo

    Positive:
Self-Assured
Sincere
Optimistic
Constant
Generous    Leo is a fixed fire sign ruled by the Sun. Leo is the most vital sign of the zodiac. They have strong egos, a tremendous amount of energy and a flair for the dramatic. Leos are romantic, idealistic and require attention, luxury, flattery and home comforts. Their egos must be stroked. Usually involved in theatre groups, acting, teaching and sports. Endowed with great confidence and courage. Since Leo is a fixed sign, it is very hard for them to make changes in their lives. Glamorous Leo enjoys a thorough love of life and all its pleasures. As the Sun bestows light and life without favour, the benefactor of every living thing on this earth, so you, genial host and natural entertainer, get inordinate pleasure from helping others enjoy life as much as you do.
     Negative:
Arrogant
Pompous
Intolerant
Domineering
Sloppy

 

Symbol: The Lion

Lucky Day: Sunday

Lucky Number: 9

Element: Fire
Modality: Fixed
Ruling Planet: Sun
Part of Body: heart, upper back, spinal column
Stones:  Ruby, peridot, onyx
Keywords: Power, authority, generosity, expansiveness, leadership.
Business Types: The "CEO", leader, president, theatre, sports.
    Leos stubbornly cling to their pride. They do not readily alter their opinions or behaviour at the request of others. Their stubborn nature makes it hard for them to accept that there is no virtue in giving what they want to give, rather virtue means giving what may be wanted or needed. Neither is there reward in giving misguided loyalty to those who are not worthy of it, which is another possibility with a Leo Sun sign.  Determined Leo, a fixed sign, can be rather stubborn and resistant to imposed changes. In many ways this is a plus, for it gives you the stamina to accomplish things in life, due to your tenacity. You can stick with projects when other more easily distracted souls lose concentration or interest. This stubbornness, which you prefer to think of as consistency and determination, is, however, dictated more often than not by your ego.

 

 
Virgo

    Positive:
Efficient
Modest
Dependable
Conscientious
Precise    Virgo is a mutable earth sign ruled by the planet Mercury, the messenger. Virgo is analytical, critical, passive, flexible, adaptable, practical and hard to please. They are clean, methodical, discriminate, down to earth and always seeking perfection. Has the tendency to index, sort, assimilate, categorize and pigeon- hole people, places and things. Interested in health, hygiene and medicine. Likes to deal in facts and take care of details. Best workers in the zodiac. Although you often have altruistic motives in helping others, you do have a tendency to act the martyr when your offerings are ignored. It is not unheard of for you to use guilt as a weapon. Helping others to improve is one thing, but pushing them toward goals of perfection they cannot hope to accomplish is quite destructive, as well as impossible.
     Negative:
Fussy
Pedantic
Critical
Puritanical
Narrow-Minded

 

Symbol: The Virgin

Lucky Day: Wednesday

Lucky Number: 3

Element: Earth
Modality: Mutable
Ruling Planet: Mercury
Part of Body: pancreas, small intestine, spleen, liver
Stones:  Sardonyx, carnalian
Keywords: Critical, discerning, methodical, modest, service-oriented, cultured, discerning.
Business Types: Bio-tech, medicine, pharmaceuticals, farming, accounting, any work that serves others and involves exacting detail.
    Virgos adapt to different people and situations by finding ways to make themselves useful. To hide their vulnerability, they focus attention on what they're doing rather than who they are. To deflect attention away from themselves, Virgos will also focus on other people by praising their talents and virtues, or by criticizing faulty behaviour or personal imperfection. A critical eye for detail, combined with your ceaseless pursuit of perfection, endows you with an irresistible urge to improve everything and everyone (whether they need it or not!). Service-oriented Virgo seeks to improve the environment, by pursuing careers in health-related fields, or in other structured areas such as teaching, labour relations, or counselling. Intensely personal situations can be somewhat inhibiting, but other circumstances can produce a very dynamic

 

 
Libra

    Positive:
Romantic
Congenial
Sociable
Charming
Diplomatic    Libra is a cardinal air sign ruled by the planet Venus, the planet of love and beauty. Libra is the sign of marriage and partnerships. They are generally, intellectual, artistic, refined, diplomatic and indecisive. Since Libra is the sign of balance, Librans have the ability to see both sides of a situation, making them great mediators. (But also making it hard for them to make up their minds.) They have an executive and legal type mind. Many lawyers have planets in this sign. Libra is never lonely. Emotional, physical, and psychological pleasure comes to you from beauty in all its forms. Books, music, flowers, and perfume are typical delights. If your environment is less than pleasing, you can become unhappy without even realizing that your surroundings may be responsible for your despondency.
     Negative:
Insincere
Vain
Indolent
Frivolous
Indecisive

 

Symbol: The Scales

Lucky Day: Friday

Lucky Number: 9

Element: Air
Modality: Cardinal
Ruling Planet: Venus
Part of Body: lower back, kidneys, bladder
Stones:  Blue Lace Agate, Chrysoprase, Lapis Lazuli, Turquoise
Keywords: Harmony, beauty, balance, diplomacy, idealism, justice
Business Types: The judge, police, fashion, art, luxuries, precious metals, artists, diplomats
    Librans accomplish things because they intellectually evaluate what needs to be done, then they charm others into cooperating to achieve the goal. By unselfishly sharing the success of accomplishment with those who have assisted them, Librans nurture the cooperative efforts of others. They have to learn how to deal with confrontation. Their fear of hurting others and also of hostile situations can keep them from reaching their goals. In spite of your need to be liked, and reluctance to face confrontations, you are surprisingly strong-willed. You set out to accomplish your chosen goals and will find ways to succeed one way or another, usually by using your wit and charm.

 

 
Scorpio

    Positive:
Imaginative
Subtle
Fearless
Loyal
Profound    Scorpio is a fixed water sign ruled by the planet Pluto, the planet of transformation and co-ruled by the planet Mars, planet of action and energy. Scorpio is the mystery sign of the zodiac. Scorpio shows a deep understanding of the mysteries of life and curiosity concerning birth, death and re-birth. There is an interest in sex at an early age. They take life seriously, have the tendency to dominate and control others lives (allegedly for their own good). Scorpio can be very secretive, they have a strong quiet reserve, with strong survival instinct. Determined Scorpio can be rather stubborn and resistant to imposed changes. In many ways this is a plus, for it gives you the stamina to accomplish things in life, due to your tenacity. On the surface you may seem easy-going, congenial, and gregarious, but you are also extremely tenacious with a need to manipulate and control your situations.
     Negative:
Jealous
Suspicious
Secretive
Controlling
Resentful

 

Symbol: The Scorpion

Lucky Day: Tuesday

Lucky Number: 4

Element: Water
Modality: Fixed
Ruling Planet: Pluto
Part of Body: reproductive system, sex organs, large intestine
Stones:  Opal, topaz
Keywords: Sex, secrecy, investigation, rebirth, intensity, determination, integrity, imagination.
Business Types: Law enforcement, religion, military, mental health.
    Scorpios stubbornly cling to emotional attachments. They rarely forget or forgive emotional rejection. They have to learn that jealousy and possessiveness are self-defeating. Re-channelling negative feelings and experiences into constructive activity benefits others, as well as themselves. No other sign has the emotional strength of Scorpio. Emotions govern your first reactions to every experience in life. Although instinctive emotions generate the strongest motivations for your behaviour, you are not prone to wearing your heart on your sleeve. You need to dominate relationships and rarely display your true feelings, holding back something of yourself, even at your most open and communicative moments. Although you may not intentionally set out to be mysterious, you manage to appear enigmatic anyway. You hate being crossed or manipulated, and can react to such treatment with sarcasm and vengefulness.

 

 
Sagittarius

    Positive:
Adventurous
Wise
Generous
Philosophical
Utopian    Sagittarius is a mutable fire sign ruled by the planet Jupiter, the planet of opportunity and expansion. Sagittarius is friendly enthusiastic, optimistic, outgoing and philosophical. They have a keen interest in foreign cultures, religion and travel. Independence and freedom are important to them. Loves to talk, can be blunt. Most Sagittarians have a problem with time due to tendency to procrastinate. You readily adapt to change and home is where you hang your hat. This is both a strength, because it is a survival mechanism, and a weakness because it makes you vulnerable to the demands and influence of others. Frank Sagittarius does not hesitate to give an honest opinion, which can seem tactless at times - although it is rarely your intention to be cruel. You have a ready wit and appreciate the humour in even the grimmest situations.
     Negative:
Tactless
Boastful
Unrealistic
Unreliable
Moralistic

 

Symbol: The Archer

Lucky Day: Thursday

Lucky Number: 7

Element: Fire
Modality: Mutable
Ruling Planet: Jupiter
Part of Body: Thighs, sciatic nerve
Stones:  Topaz, citrine
Keywords: Freedom, travel, knowledge, learning, optimism, broad-mindedness.
Business Types: The Internet, computers, science, technology, public service, social work, some publishing
    Restless energy and the need for personal independence keep a Sagittarian moving in many directions. They become experts at adapting to the culture or climate of their immediate environment. Always ready to travel for business or pleasure (and sometimes because of an overwhelming urge to escape) Sagittarians are all too willing to break free of the confinements of responsibility and work. Enthusiastic Sagittarius has a passion for sports. Physically challenging endeavours of all kinds, including archery, jogging, hang gliding, sailing, and fishing (especially for big game fish) are favorite activities. One big challenge to overcome may be the battle of the bulge, when your fondness for food, glorious food and a good drop finally catches up with you. A natural gambler and risk-taker, you usually come out on the winning side

 

 
Capricorn

    Positive:
Patient
Enterprising
Organised
Ambitious
Constructive    Capricorn is a cardinal earth sign ruled by the planet Saturn, the planet of responsibility, dependability, patience and karma. Capricorn is a serious, practical, hardworking, down to earth sign. They have patience, endurance, and are known to be the most ambitious sign of the zodiac. They require prestige and recognition and gravitate towards executive and managerial positions. Ambition and aspiration are the key to the Capricorn personality. Capricorn is the number one conformist of the zodiac. Survival instinct is strong. Your sense of humour is generally impeccable, although you fail to see the point of personal jokes at your expense. You hold grudges and will take revenge for perceived slights. The ancient emblem of Capricorn was the sea-goat, half goat and half fish. This symbolised the death of the lower mind and the birth of the spiritual.
     Negative:
Pessimistic
Conventional
Calculating
Dictatorial
Cold

 

Symbol: The Goat

Lucky Day: Saturday

Lucky Number: 8

Element: Earth
Modality: Cardinal
Ruling Planet: Saturn
Part of Body: Teeth, Knees
Stones: Onyx, jet, ruby, garnet
Keywords: Ambition, conservation, power, social status, discipline, prudence.
Business Types: Global trade, civil service, music, building, science. Leaders, CEOs, managers.
    Capricorns are natural goal setters. They willingly handle many tasks when it helps them get what they want. Many things are accomplished, because Capricorns always strive to reach higher goals. They need definitive guidelines. Rules and regulations provide the structure they need to establish their own behavioural patterns. They must learn, however, that the end never justifies the means.  Initiative and willingness to accept responsibilities are keys to your success, but a false pride makes it hard for you to admit when you are wrong, or to ask others for help. Though you compete aggressively for what you want, you harbour an inner lack of confidence which can make you defensive. Viewing insecurity and fear as weakness, you attempt to hide such feelings, making it hard for others to get close to you.

 

 
Aquarius

 
    Positive:
Sociable
Communicative
Independent
Rational
Progressive    Aquarius is a fixed air sign ruled by the planet Uranus, the planet of originality, freedom and sudden change. Aquarians are the individualists of the zodiac. They are independent, creative, original, inventive, mentally alert and unpredictable. Noted for abstract thinking. Lover of gadgets. Aquarius makes a better friend than mate. Most of you are less than fabulous cooks, although you'll eat just about anything! So far as sports are concerned, as long as you can participate in such activities with a partner, or as part of a team, you can get quite enthusiastic about it, so have little trouble keeping physically fit. You do have a tendency to laziness, however, so are reluctant to engage in any boring series of exercises on your own.
     Negative:
Wilful
Impractical
Erratic
Dogmatic
Cranky

 

Symbol: The Waterbearer

Lucky Day: Wednesday

Lucky Number: 7

Element: Air
Modality: Fixed
Ruling Planet: Uranus
Part of Body: Circulatory system, ankles, spinal cord
Stones: Blue Sapphire, black pearl, amethyst
Keywords: Unique, humanitarian, independent, idealistic, inventive
Business Types: The Internet, computers, science, technology, public service, social work, some publishing
    Aquarians are born looking for ideologies to which they can stubbornly cling. They refuse to budge whenever an issue involves what they believe to be a matter of principle. As in the case of the Aquarian Abraham Lincoln, society greatly benefits when these principles are noble. Determined Aquarius, a fixed sign, can be rather stubborn, offhand and resistant to imposed changes. You accept the substantial alterations in life as a challenge, but are quite averse to those small changes which can throw a spanner in the works. When confronted with unreasonable authoritarian demands or dogmatic principles to which you do not subscribe, you rebel. You certainly resent being told what to do, although you can be quite co-operative when properly approached.

 

 

 
Pisces

 
    Positive:
Sensitive
Compassionate
Imaginative
Receptive
Self-Sacrificing    Pisces is a mutable water sign ruled by the planet Neptune, the planet of inspiration, imagination, idealism and compassion. Pisces is a very sensitive sign, the emotions are strong and deep. Escapist tendencies make Pisces vulnerable to addictions such as, alcohol, drugs and cigarettes. They are lovers of music and gravitate to music as a profession. Shy Pisceans would much rather impersonate someone else than be themselves. No wonder so many of you are actors, artists, writers, and dreamers. Elusive Neptune makes it hard to predict how you will develop. Some of you are neat and well organized, while others become slovenly and careless
     Negative:
Escapist
Confused
Acquiescent
Slippery
Over-Emotional

 

Symbol: Two Fishes

Lucky Day: Friday

Lucky Number: 6

Element: Water
Modality: Mutable
Ruling Planet: Neptune, Jupiter
Part of Body: Lymph system, feet immune factors
Stones:  Aquamarine, Hematite, jasper
Keywords: Secrecy, investigation, rebirth, impressionable, sensitive, psychic, adaptable.
Business Types: Health care, public service, sea-fairing businesses, water-related businesses, film making.
    Pisceans adapt emotionally to their environment. Often painfully shy, they are adept at imitating the mannerisms of other people in order to hide their own personalities. A Piscean can too easily become a victim by identifying with the personality and problems of other people, because this severely restricts the development of their own personality and talent. The two fishes in your astrological sigil swim in either direction. Here is your choice: focus, be strong and overcome the weaknesses in your sensitive nature, or dissolve in vague longings and become the victim of your own vulnerability. For the sake of your emotional equilibrium, develop a private place of your own, or at least take a private time for daily retreat and relaxation.
