♈ Aries ♈
- First zodiac sign
- Symbol: the Ram
- Birthday: March 21 — April 20
- Element: Fire
- Ruling planet: Mars
- Starstone: Diamond
DescriptionAries is the first of the zodiac signs. Aries is the sign of the self, people born under this sign strongly project their personalities onto others and can be very self-oriented. Aries tend to venture out into the world and leave impressions on others that they are exciting, vibrant and talkative. Aries tend to live adventurous lives and like to be the center of attention, but rightly so since they are natural, confident leaders. Aries are enthusiastic about their goals and enjoy the thrill of the hunt, "wanting is always better then getting" is a good way to sum it up. Aries are very impulsive and usually do not think before they act - or speak. Too often Aries will say whatever pops into their head and usually end up regretting it later!
- Positive keywords: courageous and bold, inspiration to others, direct and decisive, takes initiative, leadership qualities.
- Negative keywords: foolhardy, egotistical, impulsive, acting with no forethought, selfish.
- Leaders: Aries are nothing less than born leaders. They do not wait for others to take initiative but they take the onus themselves and plunge to get the work done.
- Daring: Aries men and women do not waste much time analyzing about that the consequences might be. They are daring and stand erect for anything they believe in. They have all it takes to standing against the crowd. They would never think of themselves as any less and are fully confident on their abilities.
- Adventurous: All Arians are adventure freak. They simply love to take part into adventure sports. They feel the adventurous nature of them gives them a kick to face life with a lot of positivity.
- Intelligent: Arians are naturally intelligent. They also have a sharp wit. Their amazing sense of knowledge on any subject never fails to impress people around them.
- Smart: Aries men are the smartest of the lot. They make use of their intelligence to create the best opportunities for them. They have a very pleasing personality, which makes people simply fall in love with them.
- Spontaneous: Arians could be very intelligent, but at the same time they are very impulsive. They are so daring that they mostly depend on their instincts without paying any heed to what the consequences might turn out to be. They never pause when they are working. For Aries men and women there is no stopping until they finish the work they started.
- Aggressive: Aries are very childlike. They have a tendency to get a little aggressive if they don't find things working the way they want it to. One biggest quality of Aries men is they are go-getters. They never feel stressed until their work is done. This helps them a lot in their professional growth and success.
Positive traitsArians are direct in manner and speech and do not tolerate subterfuge and duplicity. They can be stimulating, if sometimes tactless companions, being incisive and satirical in their conversation. Enterprising and showing unlimited energy when dealing with their own affairs, Arians 'think on their feet' and react well under stress. While displays of fiery anger are quick to flare, these fade just as swiftly. Arians do not tend to harbour long-term resentment.
Negative traitsThe forcefulness and drive of Aries, if mis-used, can degenerate into selfish, aggressive and quarrelsome behaviour which displays a complete disregard for the feelings of others. The egocentric Aries can be imprudent, boastful and show a restlessness often resulting in impulsive, foolhardy heroics. Career-wise, promotion of self, and a tendency to progress at the expense of others, can be seen as ruthlessness. They have a strong sense of self will, and can be very argumentative and manipulative. If they do not 'win' they are prone to whinge and complain incessantly. This is part of their ploy to getting their own way. Arians travelling on a negative path use this technique to gain attention to themselves. They complain so much that others give in, just to stop the whinging. They are very 'me me me' orientated. Positive channelling of the Martian energy-drive is essential to Arians.
Friendship and compatibilityAs friends, the Rams feel ‘the more the merrier’, so they are likely to have lots of friends, with a lot of variety thrown in. They can easily adjust to the varied nature of their many friends, even with diametrically opposite personalities, and are often seen as the bonding factor among their friend circles. However, Ganesha says, their friends will find it difficult to hold on to them unless they display the same energy levels and the same zest to get things done. Though they are sensitive enough, they cannot be treated as a shoulder to cry on. Once they have formed a solid bond with a friend, though, they can be relied upon for life.
The fiery Aries personality attracts dynamic and exciting companions, so there will always be a few Leo and Sagittarius types in their camp. They can gain stability and keep their feet on the ground by including a Taurus in their circle, because the Bull of the zodiac can curtail their tendency to jump the gun. Virgos, meanwhile, can help them stay centered while also channeling their creative energy -- but a Capricorn will command the most respect from them. Leo and Aquarius are excellent for companionship, but they might find that their most important relationships will be with the sign opposite to them on the zodiac, lovely Libra. Cancer and Capricorn share their "let's get started!" mentality, making them good buddies for them as well.
Types of Aries
March 21 - 30If someone is an Aries born between the 21st and the 30th of March, Mars doubly rules and controls their destiny. They are full of fire and, on many occasions, brimstone. Power, vitality and high level of energy mark them out from others. They need to work out, get heavily involved with sports and other physical activities which will give them an adequate outlet. They are a great leader and often challenge the status quo because they believe that things can be done better than what they are. This can, however, put them at odds with others and make them a target for enemies. Although they are fearless, they may sometimes need to temper their opinions to fit in with the more conservative crowd.
March 31 - April 10Being born between the 31st of March and the 10th of April makes an Aries proud, loyal and sometimes inflexible in their opinions. They have a very strong idea about how life should be lived and they’re not prepared to make concessions to others. They are, however, very charming and love to stand out in the crowd. The way they dress, their appearance and their reputation are extremely important to them. They are also very competitive and this aspect of their nature can also, like the first group of Aries just mentioned, make them a target for those who become envious of their successful and unique life. They may need to employ a little humility to smooth out some of the more difficult relationships in their life.
April 11 - 20If someon is born between the 11th and the 20th of April means that they have a broad mind and a full and open heart. This gives them spiritual as well as material ambitions and they will look at life differently to most Aries, indeed most people generally. The thrill or travelling and the excitement of exploring the world and different cultures means that they’ll be plugged into news, current affairs and other topics that give them a deeper understanding of the world that they live in. Progress and expanding their mind, educating themself and sharing noble ideas with others will make them happy and fulfilled. They certainly have something to teach others and this will be an important component of their destiny.
CareersCareers presenting a challenge appeal most to Arians – especially those where energy and initiative are required, such as racing driver, sportsman, member of the armed services or explorer. As Aries rules the head, Arians often make good hair stylists, or on the mental plane, psychiatrists and psychologists. Associations with fire and metal make the blacksmith and steelworker obvious choices. Professions which involve cutting tools are also good choices.
Diseases that 'head first' Arians should guard against are conditions associated with the head – such as those affecting the brain the face and eyes, the upper jaw, the cerebrum and ceratoid arteries. Typical Arian complaints are brain-fever due to stress or over-work, headaches, neuralgic and eye troubles, and toothache. Aries are also prone to influenza.Health problems: brain, headaches, migraines, depression.
♉ Taurus ♉
- Second zodiac sign.
- Symbol: the Bull
- Birthday: April 21 — May 21
- Element: Earth
- Ruling planet: Venus
- Starstone: Emerald
DescriptionTaurus is the one who has immense perseverance, even when others have given up, the Taurus rages on. Solid and persistent, just like the bull, which is Taurus' well suited symbol. Taurus's have a well known reputation for being stubborn, which is not necessarily a bad thing. The stubborn streak can cause Taurus to butt heads and conflict with other strong character types. Taurus are not fond of change. They like the familiar and routine comfort of life. Taurus is easy going and not one to pick a fight but should some poor souls attempt to provoke Taurus, the wrath will be known, for they have a temper underneath the calm surface. Taurus are very responsive to their surroundings. They like decorations, color, anything that appeals to all the senses. Taurus like possessions and the Taurus home is nicely decorated with lots of things. Taurus are down to earth, they do not like gaudy, flashy or over the top things. They prefer comfortable and creative settings and objects. Taurus likes security, in every aspect of their lives from home, to love, to career. Taurus can be secretive, opinionated and stingy. Taurus tend to be self-indulgent and lazy, Taurus are master procrastinators of the astrology zodiac. They do however have a strong, persistent drive that comes to life when they chose, and no one would ever know that they are lazy. The secret to this is that their laziness is pushed aside when it comes to themselves.
- Positive Keywords: steadfast, loyal, sensitive, understanding, affectionate, generous, practical and productive.
- Negative Keywords: stubborn, excessively sensual, stingy, rigid, overly possessive, seeking only material rewards.
- Persistence: Taureans are always adored for their endurance power, stamina and patience. You have to shed a lot of energy to agitate a true Taurean. Sometime, the patience imbibed in every Taurean also works against them.
- Obstinate: Taureans are very self dependent people. They would prefer to follow their own way and act accordingly. Most of the time they would have a very practical way to come out of it. The stubborn nature of Taureans makes them go the way they have chosen. Once they make up their mind it is impossible for them to change the way they think.
- Hard-working and determined: The Taureans are go getters. They never give up any work they decide to do. They are hard workers in everything they do. Taureans sometime treat their work as fun, which makes their job much easier. Their strong will and determination mark them from the other zodiac signs.
- Reliable: Taureans believe in faith and trust. You can completely rely upon them. Their trustworthy nature help them gain faith and confidence over others easily.
Positive traitsTaureans make loyal, steadfast companions and are caring and protective towards loved ones and possessions. They are practical and competent in the management of business affairs and prefer a stable, organized routines, disliking new projects or ventures. Taureans enjoy cultural pursuits, often being talented in the artistic field – and since Taurus rules the throat, many are blessed with good speaking and/or singing voices. Lovers of luxury, Taureans make charming, hospitable hosts.
Negative traitsThe plodding ‘down to earth’ Taureans can become too ‘fixed’ and stubborn in attitude, placing too much significance on conservatism. He or she may lack imagination and show obstinancy with a tendency to boorishness. Inertia and indolence in the workplace, selfishness, avarice and meanness can become evident. The Taurean’s love of luxury may succumb to over-indulgence, causing weight problems. The Taurean’s inbuilt awareness of possessions can become overstressed, creating jealousy and suspicion.
Friendship and compatibilityThe Taurus friend can be totally relied upon in good and bad times. Once they have formed a good friendship, it is going to be a life-long relationship, which won’t get affected by time, distance or their own stubbornness. They go out of their way to help their friends, though it may not always be totally unconditional. They tend to get very attached to their friends, and sometimes nurture high expectations from them. Though Sun Signs do give a fair idea of one’s life and personality, remember that there still is much more to an individual.
Being slow and steady has its virtues, and those born under the signs of Virgo and Capricorn will share their practical sensibilities. When they need someone to help them think outside of their rut, a Gemini will give them the inspiration they need to get to brainstorming. Libras — who have a knack for beauty — tamp down their pleasure-loving tendencies, so Libras are an excellent influence over them when they need to put their nose to the grindstone. Pisces make extremely loyal friends. For Taureans, friendship and affection are less give-and-take and more matters of them getting their way as often as possible, so they also need those around them who can stand up to them. Luckily, Scorpio is smart and strong enough to get their respect, and they will always feel comfortable around Leo's and Aquarius' determination to finish what they start.
Types of Taurus
April 21 - 29Those Taureans born between the 21st and the 29th of April have the double Taurus/Venus energy. They are enamored by love and romance and will struggle to meet the right sort of person in their life. Once they do, they’ll be able to share the deepest parts of their personality and their emotions with them. Caring for the one they love is a high priority in their life.
April 30 - May 10Those of them born between the 30th of April and the 10th of May have humorous, quick-witted and versatile Mercury also ruling their birth dates. This means they are a consummate communicator whose mind is constantly bubbling over with ideas. Far from their typical Taurean brothers and sisters who are a little slow off the mark, they are endowed with considerable speed and business acumen as well.
May 11 - 21Being born between the 11th and the 21st of May makes them extremely interested in finance and it’s quite likely that they will amass a small fortune at some point in their life. They’re a practical individual who knows how to save their pennies for a rainy day. Their main objective in life is their personal security but they also care deeply for their family and loved ones and wish to take them under their wing.
CareersPractically-minded Taureans usually excel at all aspects of the construction and building industry, including the related professions of surveyor or architect. Property and land being close to their hearts, the business of real estate agent or property dealer or developer are natural choices. Earthy, nature-loving Taureans should find satisfaction as landscape or market gardeners, florists or farmers. Financial careers such as banking or bookkeeping also appeal to the methodical Taureans.

♊ Gemini ♊
- Third zodiac sign
- Symbol: the Twins
- Birthday: May 22 — June 21
- Element: Air
- Ruling planet: Mercury
- Starstone: Moss agate
DescriptionGemini people are many sided, quick both in the mind and physically. They are brimming with energy and vitality, they are clever with words. They are intelligent and very adaptable to every situation and every person. Gemini are curious and always want to know what's going on in the world around them. They are not one to sit back and watch the world go by, they want to be involved. This can sometimes make Gemini nosy, they do not mind their own business! This is because they really enjoy communicating, more so then most other astrology signs, they are the ultimate social butterfly. Gemini can talk and talk, but they have interesting things to say, their talk is not mindless babble. They have interesting opinions and thoughts on things and are not afraid to speak their mind. They are always in the know and are the one to see for the latest juicy gossip. Lacking perseverance, Gemini easily goes off topic to explore another thought or idea. Gemini are superficial, they will form opinions on matter without diving into them and exploring them fully. This can lead them into thinking they know everything, which they usually do but their mind is too busy to be concerned with fine details. Routine and boredom are Gemini's biggest fears. Gemini would rather be naive then know the depressing truth, they do not want anything putting a damper on their freedom or positive energy.
- Positive traits: light-hearted and cheerful, extremely intelligent, versatile and adaptable, clear and precise
- Negative traits: silly and superficial, big ego, scattered and nervous, cold, aloof, indiscriminate
- Dual Nature: You can never predict the mood of a Geminis. They go through tremendous mood swings and have multiple personality traits. No one can predict their way of reacting to any given situation.
- Multi-talented: They are the most versatile people you would find around. They are capable of handling multiple things at a time. The multi tasking quality of the Geminis helps them indulge into many things and balance between them all. They are best at keeping cool while handling many things at a time.
- Envious Commitment: Most of the time it would be very difficult to find a committed Gemini. They love to flirt around and would avoid going near to anywhere, where they would have to commit. They do not want to take relationships seriously. The superficial side of the Geminis forces them to think that flirting is east but commitment is way difficult for them.
- Experimental: Geminis love to experiment with their life all the time. They would give in to anything that is new. Be it food, clothes, or a new adventure, they are ever ready to take a plunge. This makes them very interesting person to spend time with.
- Adaptable: Flexibility is something that defines a Gemini very vividly. They adapt to or accept any given situation.
Positive traitsIntelligent, inquisitive and quick-witted, Geminis are lively in both conversation and debate – understandably, the nimble, chattering monkey is one of the symbols of this sign. Light-hearted and flirtatious, adaptable Gemini can also show considerable intellectual dexterity when dealing with facts, figures, reason and logic. The ‘Twins’ express the duality of Gemini and subjects are skilled at the co-ordination of mind and hands, and are often ambidextrous.
Negative traitsGemini can be mischievous, using their inventive mind for deceitful purposes – often telling one person on thing, and the next person, something different. The high energy level and mental agility of Gemini can, when over-stressed, deteriorate into restlessness and instability. Always attracted to new interests and ideas, Gemini may well flit from project to project, touch on each in a superficial way and then abandon it. This lack of concentration and perseverance produces unreliability, inconsistency and capriciousness. Dishonesty can also arise when an inherent ‘cleverness’ enables Geminis to live by their wits.
Friendship and compatibilityThe Gemini make good friends as they like to keep everyone in their circle happy, and wish to be in the good books of everyone. They will win everyone’s heart as they are the charm of the group and are loving at the core. They won’t stay away from appreciating others in friendship neither they will ever stand far at the time of need. They make excellent relations and possibly would have many friends around them.
Unless Gemini's companions are dynamic, their interest in them is going to fizzle out fast. Fellow Air signs Libra and Aquarius will always keep up their end of the interaction (and then some!), so count on spending a whole bunch of time with them. Other fast bonds can be struck up with Aries. Gemini admire the Ram's bravery, and follow their lead with glee. Cancers always offer the kind of grounded, sound influence Gemini know they really need. To them, personal connections should always be open-ended, so no one will understand them better than a Sagittarius — they both share the desire for a long leash. Meanwhile, Pisces will be as flexible and fun as they are.
Types of Gemini
May 22 - June 1Being born between the 22nd of May and the 1st of June makes someone a Gemini with a cusp influence of the previous sign, Taurus. Although they’re primarily an intellectual type with intense Mercurial influences, Venus, the ruler of Taurus, also imprints upon them considerable sensuality, grace and charm. They not only love the written word, intellectual pursuits and other forms of communication, but may gravitate towards artistic, musical and creative pursuits to express their inner need for cultural perfection.
June 2 - June 12If they’re a Gemini born between the 2nd and the 12th of June, they also have a tendency to be sensual but have the influence of Libra as well which makes them at times indecisive about their life path. They need clarity in their choice of partners and must never impulsively rush into any sort of relationship.
June 13 - June 21If they’re born between the 13th and the 21st of June, the influence of Aquarius and the unpredictable planet Uranus has a sway over their life and their temperament. They are spontaneous in many areas of their life and like to explore the unknown. Their life will swing from the positive to the negative so they must be prepared for some turbulent times in their life. At least they’ll never be bored with the challenges that are presented to them, and as they grow older and develop more wisdom, they’re likely to be regarded as someone with extraordinary knowledge and a capacity to help those around them. Their path is one of compassion and humanitarianism.
CareersEnjoying a wide range of pursuits, lively Geminis can make excellent teachers, broadcasters and journalists. Gemini excels at all types of communication and in particular those occupations which allow their initiative, imagination and free expression. They are also accomplished linguists, translators, teachers, lecturers and salespeople – occupations that give Gemini’s agile mental and verbal skills full expression. Careers connected with travel (ie. courier, news reporter, travel agent or aerobatic pilot are all typically ‘Mercurial’.
Gemini has rule over the hands, arms, lungs and nervous system and this restless sign suffers health difficulties with these parts of the body. Respiratory and nervous disorders, however, are the main Gemini health problems. Counter-balancing nervous excitability, periods of rest are advisable and a channeling of Gemini’s compulsive restlessness will avoid debilitating exhaustion. Overcoming illnesses comparatively quickly, Geminis keep a youthful appearance throughout their lives.Health problems: blood, nervous system, shoulders, lungs
♋ Cancer ♋
- Tenth zodiac sign
- Symbol: the Crab
- Birthday: June 22 — July 22
- Element: Water
- Ruling planet: Moon
- Starstone: Pearl
DescriptionCancer is a mysterious sign, filled with contradictions. They want security and comfort yet seek new adventure. They are very helpful to others yet sometimes can be cranky and indifferent. Cancer has a driving, forceful personality that can be easily hidden beneath a calm, and cool exterior. The crab is Cancer's ruling animal and it suits them well, they can come out of their shell and fight but they can also hide in their shell of skitter away back into the depths of the ocean. They are very unpredictable. With cancer, there is always something more that meets the eye, for they are always partially hidden behind the shell. They are a have a deep psyche and intuitive mind that is hidden from the world. Cancer is deeply sensitive and easily hurt, this might be why they have their defense shell in place, to avoids being hurt by others. They are nurturers so they surround themselves with people, whom after a while can offend or hurt a cancer without even knowing they did so, therefore Cancer's protective shell keeps them safe from hurt. They are complex, fragile, unpredictable and temperamental and need constant support and encouragement, more then any other astrology signs, Cancer needs to be needed. When cancer gets the support it needs, it has a tremendous amount to offer in return. When cancer gets offended, they tend to sulk instead of confronting the persons face to face. This needlessly prolongs the pain and suffering. Cancer is very possessive, not just with material possessions but with people as well. Cancer will always want to stay in touch with old friends and anyone who has ever been close to them, because it is easier to maintain a friendship then attempt to learn to trust a new person. It is easier this way for them emotionally. If you befriend a Cancer, you will stay friends for a long time. Cancer makes the perfect mother, this is the sign that represents motherhood. They have unconditional love and caring more so then any other astrology sign. Cancer are very intuitive. Most of the psychics of the world are Cancer astrology signs. They have an excellent memory and are very observant and can read people very well. They can usually tell of other people's intentions are good or not. Never dupe a Cancer, they can see your motives. Cancer has a lot of emotional issues to deal with but once they overcome this large hump of shyness and insecurity, there is practically nothing they can't do. With their strong intuition, sensitivity, powers of observation and intelligence, they will have great success in anything they undertake.
- Positive traits: Sensitive, caring, understanding, psychic, impressionable, holds the family together.
- Negative traits: Clingy, smothering, fearful, over-anxious, moody, clannish, snobby.
- Creative: The Crabs can come up with brilliant and novel ideas using their imaginative powers. However, in the process they can end up with ideas that may not be too practical, or may be too over-ambitious.
- Spontaneous: The power to think and act spontaneously is a major guiding force for a Cancer-born, and more than reasoning, they rely on their intuition for taking decisions.
- Protective: Cancer-born individuals are greatly protective of their personal area, interests, belongings, relationships and loved ones.
- Emotional: Cancer-born are quite emotional people, but at times they might appear icy and separated. They sympathise with other people and love to take care of them.
Positive traitsAffectionate and with a kindly good humour, Cancerians are devoted to home and family and remain loyal to their friends, clinging to failing relationships which would have been long abandoned by others. At their best in an environment where their protective and nurturing instincts are allowed free expression, Cancerians are natural ‘collectors’ and show great tenacity and perseverance — setting and achieving goals with a quiet determination. They are also thrifty and methodical in their business affairs.
Negative traitsThe mood changes of Moon-influenced cancer, subject to the fluctuating phases of their planet, can become exaggerated with hypersensitivity, sentimentalism and self-pity often prevailing. Concern for loved ones may be expressed as fussiness and, if fearful of losing a loved one, Cancer can resort to childish behaviour, becoming possessive and tenaciously clingy. Kindness may swiftly change to ‘crabbiness’ and a disinclination to discard anything of sentimental value, often leads to a reputation for untidiness and a mass of ‘clutter’.
Friendship and compatibilityA Crab in friendship will be a fully devoted friend who would be very attached and loyal to his or her friends. They tend to have a large friend circle and will be always there when a friend requires any kind of help. However, a Cancer-born can be very sensitive and can be easily hurt by harsh words from their friends.
Someone as sensitive as a Cancer needs to be surrounded with others who understand the depth of their feelings and can cope with their shifting moods. Pisces and Scorpio will always be sympathetic and supportive when they need it most. They can look to a Leo when they need someone to help them assert yourself the way they know that they should. Taurus will always be a stabilizing force, and Cancer'll find themself drawn into their favorite activities because they know they can depend on Taurus for a good time. Cancer will also find Libra and Aries easy to live with and around. These signs' ability to get people moving will blend well with Cancer's nurturing attitude, and allows them to see big decisions from similar perspectives.
Types of Cancer
June 22 - July 3If someone is born between the 22nd of June and the 3rd of July, the power of the Moon is exceedingly strong in their case. Their moods will shift very powerfully in keeping with the phases of the moon, and to understand themself more adequately, thy may want to keep a calendar of the lunar phases so they can be a step ahead of what’s happening. Their romance and love life perfectly reflects who they are, particularly because they are so capable of nurturing others.
July 4 - July 13Being born between the 4th and the 13th of July means the Cancer is an individual who has developed a high degree of concentration and is focused on achieving more than the average sort of life. There are times when they are possessive and domineering of their loved ones, but by the same token they’re exceedingly loyal and will sacrifice much for their happiness. They must be careful to allow others independence and freedom, rather than trying to keep them under their thumb.
July 14 - July 22If a Cancer is born between the 14th and the 22nd of July, they have the influence of Pisces as well as Cancer, and this means that they’re able to love others unconditionally. Their selfless attitude endears others to them and they may be drawn to the helping or healing professions as a result. They may be compassionate but try to keep their feet planted firmly on the ground as well.
CareersThrifty, careful and with a shrewd business acumen, many Cancerians succeed in the business sector. The nautical and allied maritime professions often appeal – as does most work connected with liquids, such as chemist, publican, restaurateur, caterer and hotelier. The last four occupations are also in the ‘caring professions’ category, to which Cancerians are well suited. Avid ‘collectors’, Cancerians are excellent curators or antique dealers.
The breasts, stomach and alimentary canal – all connected with feelings and nourishment – are Cancerian ruled. The female reproductive organs, uterus and ovaries are susceptible areas and these are affected by the Moon’s phases, as is fluid retention. Diseases affecting the stomach, liver and digestive system can be problematic for Cancerians, and a linking for food and drink may result in gastric ulcers – plus the necessity for diet and exercise.Health problems: stomach, digestion, reproductive organs

Positive traitsThe positive Leo is bold, courageous, open-minded and has a strong sense of dignity. Born leaders with a generous breadth of vision and excellent organizational skills, the commanding Leo presence is eminently suited to positions of importance and authority. Leo’s generosity, warmth and affection is genuine and their confident, extrovert, ‘larger than life’ manner makes them greatly admired. Loyal to partners and friends, Leos are optimistic, stout-hearted people who often show great strength of character.
Negative traitsIf Leo’s warmth and nobility turns to self-egotism, they can become very full of themselves, bringing forth an arrogance, and they have a tendency to become conceited and demanding. This will then drive others away from them. Fuelled by ego, Leo can very badly burn and scorch others, and if they continue to focus only on themselves they can quickly burn themselves out. The danger for Leo is to get caught up in the ego, thus expecting others to always be at their beck and call. When this happens, instead of encouraging others to be the best they can be, they enslave other with their demands.
A personal sense of regality, if over-stressed, may incline an autocratic Leo towards profligacy and arrogance with a pompous over-bearing attitude. An unwillingness to take ‘second place’ is an extension of their vanity and conceit and whether they are magnanimous ‘king of the castle’ or caring heads of their family, Leo expects the ‘Lion’s share’ of appreciation and adulation. If this is not forthcoming, condescending Leos can be scathing and crushingly dismissive. Lack of fulfilment or repeated assault on their pride and dignity, may cause depression.
Friendship and compatibilityThe Lions form very true and loyal friendships, which is why they make ideal companions. They will stand by their friends through thick and thin, right till the very end, which means, till they have solved the problems that their friends may be facing. They give all of their care and warmth to their friends and will always try to keep them happy and safe.
A Leo is strong, dynamic and resourceful -- but they need to surround themself with those they can trust. Aries and Sagittarius will match their ability to get the party started, and they'll also find Gemini to be a lot of fun. Because they admire a worldview that's practical and ambitious, they'll want to throw some Capricorns into the mix, too. But ultimately, their pals should be deserving of all the warmth and passion they bring to the relationship, so it might be surprising that they find themself drawn to Aquarius. Aquarian cool, almost-inaccessible veneer is a source of constant intrigue for them. The inventive water-bearer will also know exactly how to keep them from getting too carried away with themself. Other good, solid influences are Taurus and Scorpio, who keep promises and remain attentive to their needs.
Types of Leo
July 24 - August 5Being born between the 24th of July on the 5th of August makes someone Leo through and through. Their charisma and power are undeniable and from early age they have had a strong sense of their personal destiny. As a result, they are not surprised to find themself assuming positions of authority and power and life. Some of them may even hold high office, become interested in politics or at this community work and will certainly become the best in their field.
August 6 - 14A Leo born between the 6th on the 14th of August will have an adventurous nature and like to explore the different avenues of life to make their life more exciting and interesting. Culture, travel and higher studies are some of the different avenues which will draw them away from a conventional lifestyle to an independent type of life. They have a great love of freedom and will never let anyone dictate the terms of their existence.
August 15 -23Impatience and a hot-headed nature are some of the problems they face being born between the 15th and the 23rd of August. Once they can bring these emotions under control they have a much better chance of not only being successful but finding happiness in their personal affairs as well. Because of the strong influence of Mars and Aries on their birthday they have a strong ego and need to understand that others may just be right sometimes. Notwithstanding these negative traits, they do have a very generous nature and are affectionate to the ones they care for.
CareersWith their leadership and organizational skills, as well as their creativity and vision, Leos are drawn to ‘executive’ positions, especially those in which they may oversee and assert their authority. Such careers as military officers, government officials or school principle, suit Leo. Given Leo’s love of drama, such occupations as actors, producers and impresarios suit their personality. All areas of the theatre hold compulsive interest for Leos. The financial professions and those dealing with gold (eg. goldsmith or jeweller) are also applicable.
The heart and spine are ruled by Leo, and although health and vitality are good, ‘putting his heart into what he does’, Leo drives himself relentlessly – explaining why those in positions of Leo power may suffer heart-related problems. Bad circulation and spinal afflictions such as lumbago may prevail. Care should be taken to protect and exercise the spine, and prevention of heart disease by maintaining a healthy diet is a sensible precaution.Health problems: heart, upper back, eyes, blood, lungs

- Modest: Since they are goal-oriented, perfectionists, rational and reliable, it is very likely that they are great achievers too. But you will rarely see them boasting about their accomplishments.
Positive traitsVirgos are sincere, dependable people who are neat and methodical, and as ultimate perfectionists, are extremely self-critical. Taking great pride in their work, Virgo enjoys things which involve analysis and attention to detail. Attracted to learning, receptive Virgos are one of the easiest signs to educate. Artistically inclined and proficient at handicraft work, Virgos are excellent with the finer details. Virgos make neat, methodical homemakers, always ‘on the go’, improving their homes with useful, artistically pleasing items – often crafted by themselves.
Negative traitsVirgo’s constant quest for perfection and their obsession with detail, can produce a paranoid, cantankerous person. Virgo’s innate intelligence can deteriorate into deviousness.
Friendship and compatibilityThe Virgos can become very attached to their good friends, and thereby very demanding too. However, once they become intimate with a friend they will go to great lengths to keep them happy. They will always be around when their friends need them and would advise them in their best interests in times of difficulties. They are true givers in relations and it feels good to have them around. You need to remember that though Sun Signs do give a fair idea of one’s life and personality, a lot depends on the individuality of a person.
This sign trustworthy and solid enough to take care of themself, but they like it when they have emotionally stable buddies like Taurus and Capricorn to back them up. Cancer's sensitivity also attracts them — Virgo might feel like this is the one sign that can really take care of them on the rare occasion they need it. Aquarius helps them see the big picture, while Gemini can urge them into doing almost anything to get where they want to be. They'll also find that dreamy Pisces will draw them in: here is someone who takes their fantastic advice and wakes up their imaginative, romantic side. Brave Sagittarius and busy Gemini will also make good, fun friends, because these share Virgo's ability to change direction when they need to take a different track and keep the wind in their sails.
Types of Virgo
August 24 - September 3Those Virgos born between the 24th August and 3rd September don't really like to be the centre of attention and can become embarrassed if singled out from the crowd. They are what can be termed the quiet achiever and prefer anonymity to being a show stopper.
September 4 - 14If someone's born between the 4th and 14th of September, they are a quick thinker, can reach a decisive viewpoint without too much trouble and at times have moments of intuition that surprise them. They need to watch that they don't become bogged down in a serious way.
September 15 - 23Virgos between the 15th and 23rd September are the most sensual of the Virgos as Venus, their co-ruler, brings out this side of their nature. Remaining young and pleasure seeking is far more appealing to them than growing old gracefully. Life for them is to be lived to the fullest.
CareersVirgos enjoy productive, practical occupations requiring meticulous attention to detail – such as confidential secretary or personal assistant. The callings of chemist, scientist, dietician, doctor, naturopath, accountant or clerk are all applicable professions for Virgo. Particularly suitable would be the craftsperson, involved in the production of beautiful items which also have a functional value. Appropriate too are the ‘communications’ professions such as journalist, writer and especially critic.
Virgo rules the hands, the nervous system and the intestines. This indicates Virgo’s link with food and nutrition. Problems with the digestive system are prevalent in these subjects. Virgos should be aware that their concern with detail, plus a constant anxiety that everything should be ‘just right’, gives rise to nervous stress, which may lead to stomach ailments. Health problems can result from too much worry and stress, and ulcers are common in Virgo. A pre-occupation with their own health could indicate hypochondria.Health problems: abdomen, spleen, intestines, diaphragm

- Negative traits: Incapable of decision, co-dependant, pleasure seeking, hedonist, manipulating, dominating, dependent on others, superficial.

Positive traitsConsiderable, courteous Librans enjoy communicating and the companionship of their fellows. They are consummate diplomats and avoid friction whenever possible, using fact rather than aggression when confronted. Amiable peace-lovers, Libran’s will mediate and try to unite those who are quarrelling. Concerned with balance, Librans are fair-minded with a highly developed sense of justice. They are intelligent, clear-thinking, generally truthful and loyal. Librans have a sympathetic attitude to those less fortunate, and are quick to lend a helping hand or encouraging word. The Ancients believed the Libran to be particularly trustworthy and to be able to handle other people’s personal money with honesty – even if they have none of their own.
Negative traitsHarmony-seeking Libra can become self-pitying and disillusioned by the natural ‘dis-harmony’ of life. They often have problems coming to terms with ‘unfairness’. Searching for that ‘special’ relationship, Librans can gain themselves a reputation for being flirtatious. The Libran concern with ‘weighing the balance’ often leads to indecision, and an inherent dislike to say ‘NO’ can cause regret. Procrastination, downright laziness and ultra-sensitivity are common faults with Libra – as is vanity, when a pre-occupation with appearances becomes over-stressed.
Friendship and compatibilityAs a friend, a Libra native is generous and loyal. He would go out of his way to help his friends with all the resources at his disposal. He will be a true well-wisher, and give his friends only the best guidance, even though the friends at first may doubt his intentions. They believe in the inherent goodness of humanity at large, and will never be crooked or unfaithful to their friends.
It isn't hard to find company that appreciates the Libra's ability to listen with an open mind, but when they want a genuinely rational conversation, they'll gravitate toward their Gemini and Aquarius friends. Scorpio offers them a unique perspective, including the possibility of asserting their will without provoking those messy, direct confrontations. Leo's dramatic flair often inspires Libra's own penchant for the performing arts. But it's Aries that's their best bet for BFF. The challenge of taming this wild beast and bringing seemingly limitless energy into balance brings out Libra's fun side. Cancer's and Capricorn's "can-do" attitude offers nice possibilities for self-improvement and widening Libra's horizons. One really big plus: these fast-acting types can help them make quicker decisions.
Types of Libra
September 24 - October 3If someone is born between the 24th September and 3rd October, they are a true diehard Libran with the quality of Venus fully dominating their life. They are artistic, caring, full of love and social warmth with many friends, but perhaps too many even for themself at times.
October 4 - 13Librans born between the 4th and 13th October are a little “out there” by nature but harmless. Their life is a bundle of fun and they like the surprises that are thrown at them from time to time. "Expect the unexpected" could be their mantra.
Ocotber 14 - 23The final portion of Libra is between the 14th and 23rd October. If this is someone's birth date, they are the type of Libran who is constantly on the hunt for knowledge and information – an almost insatiable thirst. They will never tire of learning new things and could be kindly termed the eternal student. They will also never grow old as Mercury’s co-rulership of their life ensures a youthful attitude and sprightly future.
CareersNot generally ambitious, Librans feel at ease in professions involving one-on-one counseling, such as marriage guidance or career advisers. Librans excel particularly in the judicial, diplomatic and financial fields. Enjoying clean, equable surroundings, Librans are appropriately placed in the world of fashion and beauty.

Care should be taken to preserve this equilibrium, and to not allow the inherent Libran languor to jeopardize their regime.Health problems: lumber region, kidneys, lower back, bladders
♏ Scorpio ♏
- Eighth zodiac sign
- Symbol: the Scorpion
- Birthday: October 24 — November 22
- Element: Water
- Ruling planet: Mars, Pluto
- Starstone: Opal
DescriptionScorpio is the astrology sign of extremes and intensity. Scorpios are very deep, intense people, there is always more then meets the eye. They present a cool, detached and unemotional air to the world yet lying underneath is tremendous power, extreme strength, intense passion and a strong will and a persistent drive. Scorpios have a very penetrative mind, do not be surprised if they ask questions, they are trying to delve deeper and figure things out and survey the situation. They always want to know why, where and any other possible detail they can possibly know. Scorpio's are very weary of the games that other people try to play and they are very aware of it. Scorpios tend to dominate and control anyone that lets them, or anyone that they find weak. The person that a Scorpio respects and holds close to them is treated with amazing kindness, loyalty and generosity. On the outside, a Scorpio has great secretiveness and mystery. This magnetically draws people to them. They are known to be controlling and too ambitious but only because they need control for this makes them feel safe.
- Positive traits: strong, loyal, deep, penetrating, giver of strength, seeks merger with Spirit
- Negative traits: ruthless, jealous, vindictive and controlling, psychic vampire, uses others for personal gain, wants others to merge with him
- Dominating: Scorpions are dominating and the leading force in their personal as well as professional life. They are powerful and strong... and these traits are evident in their leadership.
- Malicious: As already mentioned, Scorpions are the greatest buddies, if you do not mess with them. If you mess with them unnecessarily, they can sting you with their venom. They believe in the philosophy of “Tit For Tat”. For this reason, think twice before messing with the Scorpio.
- Attractive: Scorpions are mostly very attractive and almost all of them have magnetic personalities. For this reason, they attract people towards them very easily. Their magnetic personality make them leaders and for this reason, they develop a little ego problem.
- Temperamental: Scorpions are known for their temperament. They quickly shift their mood, that it is sometimes difficult for their close ones, to predict their mood. This trait makes the situation hard for them, when people do not want to mingle with them for this reason.
- Stubborn: A strong mind is the middle name of the Scorpions. If they are allotted any task, they will do it by any means. They are determined and strong minded. No matter, if they are criticized and blamed, they will accomplish the given tasks. For this reason, most of them are very successful.
Positive traitsScorpios are intensely passionate and devoted to that which is theirs – be it a partner, family, career or ‘cause’. They are reliable, cautious, often restrained in manner and prove to be ‘safe’ confidantes who keep secrets and true feelings well hidden. Highly analytical, resourceful, accepting and adapting easily to change, Scorpios often solve problems intuitively. Imaginative and with a compelling personal magnetism, this sign possesses a strong sense of purpose and never does things by halves.
Negative traitsScorpio’s natural caution, if over-stressed, can lead to jealousy and suspicion of those around and havoc may be caused by the sign’s misdirected passions, fertile imagination, an inherent ruthlessness and biting ‘sting in the tail’ remarks which can be both hurtful and damaging to the recipient. A slighted Scorpion is uncompromising in its bitterness, with hatred and enmity often lasting a lifetime. To Scorpio, ‘Love’ is all-consuming. Sexual love represents the challenge of transcending the physical to reach a rare emotion of mystical intensity. A tendency to indulge their passions too generously, to use their ‘animal magnetism’ too cunningly, makes the Scorpion a volatile, often disruptive partner. On the negative side, Scorpio can be the rapist, seducer or 'vampire' who uses the energy of others for his own purpose.
Friendship and compatibilityA Scorpio friend will be totally faithful and would expect the same from others as well. When their friends need help, they always will be there. Nonetheless, pride and self-respect is very important to a Scorpio. Though, Scorpio-born would have cordial relation with numerous people, they end up having very few friends.
Will a Scorpio ever find anyone who meets their standards of perfection? Probably not, but they still enjoy the friendly company of others — particularly intuitive sorts like Cancer and Pisces. With these emotionally intelligent influences, they share the ability to face feelings and act upon them. Aries helps bring out their thoughts into the open where they can be acted upon, while they respect Leo's innate leadership cred and charisma. When the Scorpio needs someone who has a strong personality and who will call them out when they're being too domineering, Taurus is only too happy to step up. Scorpio'll also find that Leo and Aquarius are good diplomats around them, because they're most comfortable when everyone cooperates in an effort to maintain some semblance of stability.
Types of Scorpio
October 24 - November 2Born between the 24th October and 2nd November, the Scorpio is an intensely sensual character but they do have noble aspirations. Pleasure will be a focal point for them and in their earlier life they may spend a lot of time exploring the sexual part of their personality.

CareersWork involving analytical processes, as with the scientist, researcher and criminal investigator, allows Scorpio to express its practical aspects. The secretive aspect of Scorpio is seen in the work of the psychoanalyst and a mediumistic gift for healing would be aptly expressed by a doctor or spiritual healer. Careers connected with the sea are applicable to Water sign Scorpio, as also are those with the ‘cutting’ Mars influence, such as surgeon, butcher or hairdresser.
Representing the secret mysteries of the life-force itself, Scorpio has rule over the generative organs, and symbolizing the ‘elimination’ process prior to renewal, the anus. Ailments tend to be located in the genitals, prostate gland, bladder and colon. A link with Taurus brings vulnerability to the throat. Ruptures and abscesses may also occur.

An outspoken, light-hearted attitude makes Sagittarians popular people, and an above average intellect leads to a variety of wide-ranging interests. In an intellectual sense, exploratory Sagittarians are often drawn to the more profound and mentally demanding subjects, such as law, religion and philosophy.
Negative traitsSagittarius can, if over-stressed, become boisterous and their ‘jokiness’ can degenerate into ‘horse play’. A natural generosity could become over-extravagance and the extrovert Sagittarian may develop braggartly, boastful and arrogant ways. An over-emphasis on ‘personal freedom’ could result in quarrelsome revolt against establishment and/or social order. The Sagittarian intellect may tend to accumulate superficial trivialities. Mental restlessness needs controlling. The negative side of the Sagittarian thinking process is the narrow-minded thinking person who seeks to impose his own version of the truth on others.

Sagittarius is the quintessential free spirit, and people admire the firm grip they maintain on their independence. In turn, they cherish friends who respect their freedom and add excitement to their life, such as vivacious Leo and fearless Aries. Virgo offers the structure Sagittarius need to channel their energy into something productive. If they're looking for a confidante or a "BFF," it is essential to have someone in their life who not only understands their need for a long leash, but who also is busy enough to maintain an active life away from theirs. Gemini is ideal for them, and so is Pisces or Virgo.
Types of Sagittarius

The majestic royal solar energies endow them with an incredibly strong sense of self and also the likelihood of tremendous success personally and financially. They will also develop a more spiritual attitude.
CareersSuitable careers should allow both the physical and mental aspects of Sagittarius to be given equal freedom for development. Sporting and outdoor professions are applicable, such as in the competitive, exploratory and the hunting fields. Given the symbolic Sagittarian link with the house, all work connected with these animals is ideal. The intellectual professions also appeal, such as writer, lawyer, teacher, priest and philosopher. Sagittarians are also appropriately employed as translators of foreign languages.
Sagittarius has rule over the thighs, hips and liver. Sciatica and hip joint problems are prevalent and rheumatism and rheumatic fever are common ailments. Over-indulgence may cause dysfunction of the liver, and the Sagittarian preoccupation with sport and physical activity can often result in accidents. Psychological upset, mental strain or nervous exhaustion following intense restlessness will need to be offset by periods of relaxation – perhaps of a meditative nature.Health problems: hips, thighs, rheumatism

A diligent, hardworking sign which enjoys responsibility, it achieves it’s ambitions by perseverance, persistence and by applying a constructive, detailed approach in all things. They are also tactful, kindly, authoritive individuals with a laconic, off-beat sense of humour. Capricornians are traditionalists, and are ambitious, thrifty and self-disciplined.
Negative traitsPessimism and nagging worries about irrelevant details are typical Capricornian traits and their cautious thrift can often degenerate into selfish, mean – even miserly – behaviour. Their liking for order often gives a ‘holier than thou’ attitude with regard to their own exacting self-discipline and narrow-mindedness. An over-emphasis on authoritarianism can cause too stern an attitude towards younger people. If ambitions are thwarted, the Goat will become restless and embittered.
Friendship and compatibilityAs a friend, the Capricorn-born native would be faithful and truthful. They would try to help their friends in need of support. They may not have many friends but they would be very attached to the ones they do have. They are not too expressive either, which in some cases may lead to misunderstandings. Moreover, they need to take care not to show off.
No man is an island, but sometimes it can appear that they're trying to be just that. They require confidante-level trust in their friends, and that's why they can always rely on their steadfast fellow earth signs, Virgo and Taurus. But Libra keeps them in check, supplying an influence of even-handedness that allows them to avoid becoming a tyrant. They may not always like the soft-pedal approach, but they know it's good for them. When they come home from the trenches, they need someone who will pamper them unconditionally, even if it's only with attention. Cancer's nurturing energy will give them the feeling of "home" from the get-go. Libra and Aries are, like Capricorn, self-starters, so their energy is totally in sync.
Types of Capricorn
December 23 - January 1If someone is a Capricorn who was born between December 23 and January 1, they have an extra dose of Saturn energy as part of their makeup. They are exceedingly ambitious in the way they express themself and are most likely to find success and happiness through work. Marriage and family life is also important to them but my take second place to their work.
January 2 - 11If they were born between 2 and 11th January, they are sometimes inflexible and this can be particularly problematic for their relationships. They are also somewhat possessive and jealous. They are extremely practical and their common sense will be one of their most invaluable assets.
January 12 - 20As a Capricorn born between the 12th and 20th January their mind is brilliant and full of amazing details and plans. They see the minutiae of each and every situation. They are a little critical of themself and others and should spend a little more time focusing on their good points rather than the bad.
CareersCaving, mining and all underground work are traditionally associated with Capricorn. However, given their orderliness and organizational skills, any business requiring this ability is appropriate. Capricorn will carry out orders from above and ensure that those below do their duty. This would also apply to those Capricornians who enter the church, armed forces or teaching fields. Building and construction work is also suitable.
Limiting diseases of rheumatoid/arthritic origin are common Capricornian complaints as both Saturn and Capricorn rule the skeletal system – especially the knees. The skin may also be potentially troublesome. Eczema and psoriasis prevail, both known to be stress related and the last, a rheumatoid-related condition. Diseases associated with cold and old-age (such as osteoporosis) are common, as are digestive problems, due to stress.Health problems: knees, bone, skin diseases

- Inquisitive: Aquarians love to enquiry. Yes, believe it or not, they just love to dig the deepest corner of a matter with their questions. This is possibly the most irritating habit of the Aquarians.

Inventive, and with finely balanced powers of reasoning, clear-sighted Aquarians may use their progressive thinking to change and reform conditions for their fellows.

The influence of Uranus may cause the crusading Aquarian to be erratic, stubborn, rebellious and inconsistent.

Friendship and compatibilityAn Aquarius in friendship would be extremely faithful and compassionate. They would not only help their friend but also try to solve their problems and would suggest them the best solution. They take care of their friends when they are in need and they won’t allow their friends to stumble.
It's true: Aquarius is an original, and only those who are willing to accept that will provide satisfying companionship for them. The easiest signs for them to get along with are Libra and Gemini, because these share their ability to break things down so they can be processed with a rational mind. Still, Aquarius will probably find that Scorpio will have the right mixture of intuition and common sense to gain their loyalty and respect. Cancers will be especially helpful, if a tad too weepy, in helping Aquarius process matters of career and of the heart. But they need to make sure to surround themself with those who are also dynamic and bold ... and worthy of their ultimate coolness, like Leo. Scorpio and Taurus can also put Aquarius at ease, due to these signs' ability to be logical, steady and consistent.
Types of Aquarius
January 21 - 31An Aquarian born between the 21st and 31st January has a very much inventive and research orientated attitude. They love to have the most up to date gadgetry in their hands and like nothing better than to have the latest release of a computer, mobile phone or anything else that has just come on the market. Communication with the rest of the world and entertainment is what grabs their interest.
February 1 - 9Being born between the 1st and 9th February may mean that their friends have a hard time keeping up with them as they evolve so rapidly that it makes others' head spin. Then there will be some people who will try to hold them back from their headlong rush to conquer the world. There's an old saying, that an Aquarius might want to keep in mind, which says "think as you like, but act like others" and this may be necessary if their ways are just a little too hard for people to keep up with.
February 10 - 18If they are born between the 10th and 18th February, the Aquarius may come across as being detached and even insensitive but they actually deeply care for their fellow man. A very diverse group of friends and associates will be attracted to them and will live life with the view to exploring every aspect of relationships with the ultimate goal of a more enlightened view of the world and themself.
CareersCareers requiring inventiveness and originality of thought are particularly apt for the Aquarian, and those with a ‘communications’ aspect often appeal. In the radio, television and computer fields, Air sign Aquarius can make good technicians. At best, when working conditions are not restricted, the Aquarian makes an excellent aviator, astronomer, astrologer, scientist, writer or actor. Careers concerned with helping others also suit the Aquarian personality.
The Aquarian is susceptible to illnesses connected with the circulatory system – such as varicose veins, hardening of the arteries, and nerve and blood disorders. Ankles and shins are particularly vulnerable parts of the body, and care should be taken with regards to breaks, fractures and sprains in these areas. Toothache and pyorrheal are other possible ailments. Aquarians need to maintain an exercise regime to keep their bodies ‘light’.Health problems: legs, ankles

- Birthday: February 20 — March 20
- Element: Water

DescriptionPisces is the sign of mysticism, mystery and the spiritual unknown. Pisces live in two worlds, the real world and the spiritual or mystical world where they interpret what they see into what they want. They do this to avoid all the realities of pain and suffering in the world. They have extremes of emotions and feel both good and bad intensively. Pisces have formidable intuitive ability. Most Pisces are somehow involved with occult or spiritualism. Pisces are very good at understanding people for they have the ability to delve into the psyche and see behind a person's motivations. Pisces are prone to drug addiction and indulging lifestyles because of their eternal search for themselves and their fear of confrontation and having to change a situation, also they justify drug use by allowing it to get closer with their 'spiritual selves'. Once they aware this is why they are doing it, it will be easier to kick the habit. Pisces are not the pushovers that they may seem, in fact they have strength of character and will stand up for what they believe in and and they can do hard work for something they believe in. They can be very lazy but only in matters that they do not care about. Pisces is the most sensitive of all zodiac signs.
- Positive traits: Unselfish, compassionate, imaginative, creative, universal Love, spiritual.
- Negative traits: Manipulative, seeks to control through giving, paranoid, hallucinatory, poor sense of individuality, sensualist.
- Imaginative: These natives are very creative and imaginative, and they can think abstract and come up with out-of-the-box ideas. Their powers of imagination can help them scale great heights.

- Sensitive: Affectionate and gentle, they are very sensitive. If there is a setback, it affects them deeply, and they develop extreme feelings regarding the matter.
- Selfless: A Fish will go out of his way to help others. However, their selfless deeds may not always be recognised by others.
Positive traitsPisceans are caring, sensitive people, making intuitive and sympathetic listeners. They are full of understanding and forgiveness, and have an empathy with, and are kind to, animals. Capable of acts of great self-sacrifice, receptive to the emotions of others, happy, peace-loving and convivial by nature. Pisceans are charming companions. Intelligent and in a creative sense, inspired, having perceptive powers of interpretation, Pisceans can be pure idealists who enjoy supporting good causes.
Pisces can be the visionary or mystic, attuned to the spiritual realms, the healer able to empathize with and help others, or the artist who is the vehicle for the collective imagination.
Negative traitsDifficulty in making decisions and concentrating on practical matters can cause the Piscean to drift ineffectively. Due to hypersensitivity, they may also suffer from mood swings, guilt complexes and an inability to express themselves clearly. Procrastination in inherent to the Piscean nature, and self-discipline in this respect may be necessary. Dwelling in a Neptunian dream world often means that Pisceans resort to alcohol and drugs to fulfil their need for emotional and mental stimulation.
Pisces can be the 'victim' or escapist, lost and with no direction, in the vast ocean of the collective, escaping into alcohol, drugs or addictions, or drowning in the senses.
Friendship and compatibilityThe Pisces-born would be very caring and affectionate as a friend. He will be always there for his friends when they require his help. The Fish is a pillar of support and very compassionate towards his/ her friends. When they form a genuine friendship, it’s for a lifetime!
Pisces have to be careful about the company they keep, because they absorb all the energies around them — both good and bad. Cancer and Scorpio feel like the safest companions, as they share their emotional vulnerabilities. Idealistic Sagittarius will understand their need to tap into their imagination and be creative enough to allow it to run wild. They'll admire Aries' thirst for adventure. At the end of the day, however, their closest friends need to be those who can help them deal with that illusive reality while still marveling at their ability to escape it on a moment's notice. Virgo is ideal for this, but Pisces can also work out great arrangements with Gemini and Sagittarius, who share their ability to find ways to function simply by going with the flow.
