What is Horoscope
How many times have you been told that your sign means you are this or that kind of person? Chances are, at least once. But do horoscopes really mean anything? And how do they work, anyway? You may be surprised to learn just how popular astrology has been throughout history, and how people still rely on it today. Take a look at some of the most common myths about horoscopes and what they really mean when you see yours in the paper every day!
The 12 signs of the zodiac
A horoscope is not only an astrological sign based on your date, time and place of birth, but it’s also considered to be an astrological map that provides information regarding your temperament, personality and destiny. Astrology relies on different planets in our solar system to determine what traits you have (for example, Mars indicates courage) and how those traits influence your life. It can be taken as more of a science than something you should take seriously, but certain types of readings can help you understand yourself better or even give insight into future life events. An astrologer could read your horoscope based on star signs to get deeper insight into who you are and where you’re headed.
Aries – The Ram
If you’re an Aries, you tend to be hard working and outgoing. People love being around you because you’re so talkative and enthusiastic. You love going out with friends or spending time by yourself. The meaning behind an Aries horoscope sign is that as a Ram, your stubbornness can make your life harder than it needs to be sometimes. However, most people also see that you have incredible self-confidence and that drive which inspires them on their own quest for self-discovery. Over all, according to horoscopes, anyone born under an Aries sign has great intuition and isn’t afraid to take risks in order to find success in life.
Taurus – The Bull
April 20 – May 20: It’s important to learn how to develop your own values and beliefs rather than following what other people tell you are right. By learning to differentiate between your own opinion and that of others, you can learn how to stand up for yourself and ensure that your decisions are based on what works best for you. This will help you feel more confident about your life choices.
Gemini – The Twins
Gemini’s are naturally restless, and you want to do everything. This can make it hard for you to really focus on something. You need to learn how to relax and enjoy your day, as well as yourself. You need to give yourself time for free-form play, listening to music or just hanging out with friends. Don’t feel like you have to be doing something every minute of every day in order for it to be productive! If there is one thing that Gemini needs more than anything else, it’s balance! Try not overload yourself; ask others for help when necessary and spend time learning how best to relax. Learning how to deal with stress may help prevent burnout in your work and personal life later on down the road!
Cancer – The Crab
Cancer’s horoscope symbol, The Crab, reflects its nature by suggesting that you can be sensitive and delicate, but also tenacious and stubborn. Cancer tends to take hold of situations as they occur rather than prepare for them ahead of time. You are quick to respond to situations you encounter, with little thought for what might happen if your emotions get in the way. Your heart rules over your head, so it’s important for you to consider both sides of any situation before making decisions; otherwise, things can easily turn into emotional disasters that result in unnecessary stress or argument.
Leo – The Lion
If you’re born under Leo, your horoscope meaning will be ruled by one thing: confidence. You always have a huge reserve of it and only rarely do you ever feel self-doubt. However, even if it sometimes seems like there’s no one on Earth more capable than you are, it’s important to remember that success comes from practice. The more time you spend honing your skills and learning what works for you, not just blindly following your gut instinct in every situation, means bigger achievements down the road for everyone under Leo horoscope meanings. Don’t underestimate how far hard work can take you because with enough dedication to yourself and your craft, there’s nothing stopping anyone born under Leo horoscopes from greatness. __________________________________________________________________
Virgo – The Virgin
Virgoans are in touch with their bodies and minds, which means they know exactly what it feels like to be healthy and fit. While others might just say, I’m fine, Virgos can clearly describe how they’re feeling—mentally and physically. One quality that makes Virgos great personal trainers is their sensitivity to others; they take time to listen carefully to each client’s needs so they can develop unique workouts and exercise routines. Virgoans are also dependable, which means you always know your trainer will show up on time, won’t cancel sessions last minute, or lie about being sick when she isn’t actually sick. If you want true results from your training sessions—not empty promises—choose a Virgoan!
Libra – The Scales
The symbol for Libra, a set of scales, reflects that desire to maintain balance and harmony. Strongly connected to aesthetics and beauty, Libras are hard workers with refined tastes. Ruled by Venus, people born under Libra have an appreciation for art and beauty. They often have many friends, but not as many close ones because they value justice above all else in relationships; therefore, they’re fair-minded and unbiased when it comes to matters of love. This can come across as coldness or detachment to others who are seeking more demonstrative expressions of love or appreciation for their efforts. But that detachment also makes them hard workers with excellent attention to detail who appreciate those same qualities in others—making Libras excellent at teamwork.
Scorpio – The Scorpion
A Scorpio horoscope, means that you are likely to be dominated by your feelings, both positive and negative. You can count on feeling intense moods at different times in your life. They will help you gain insight into yourself and others around you, but it’s up to you whether or not you choose to use that knowledge for good or bad. With a bit of hard work and self-reflection, you can learn to be more conscious of what causes certain emotions in your life and then let them guide future decisions so they benefit everyone instead of hurting people who care about you. If you don’t take control over your emotions now, they could end up controlling you later on in life.
Sagittarius – The Archer
While some signs are prone to bouts of shyness, others just go with it. The Archer—Sagittarius, in particular—isn’t one to hold back or mince words. That might mean sometimes having harsh words for others, but if Sagittarius isn’t careful, it can also mean more serious issues when they get too caught up in their point-of-view. When that happens, they run the risk of hurting feelings and—in some cases—going beyond what’s acceptable behavior.
Capricorn – The Goat
Like all horoscopes, Capricorn’s horoscope meanings are meant to be taken with a grain of salt. In other words, we can take what it says about us personally—or just enjoy it for its entertainment value. With that in mind, here are some positive qualities that Capricorn’s horoscope has assigned to these individuals: industrious and efficient, reliable and trustworthy, ambitious but practical. Sounds like your typical self-assessment when you think about yourself—right?
Aquarius – The Water Carrier
Aquarius means water carrier. The term refers to an ancient figure who carried water from a sacred well. In some traditions, Aquarius represents water as well as human ideas and thoughts. Early civilizations revered Aquarius for delivering rain, which was essential for agriculture. In Egyptian mythology, Aquarius was known as Shai or Imbrium (from which we get our word imbibe), who brought forth all kinds of refreshing fluids from his urn. He is associated with Ganymede and Hyacinthus in Greek mythology, Hermes in Roman mythology and Brihaspati in Hindu tradition. In the Christian tradition, St.
Pisces – The Fish
The Pisces zodiac sign is known for being emotional and compassionate. Pisces also care deeply about animals and nature. It isn’t uncommon for you to find yourself rescuing an injured bird or spending hours volunteering at your local animal shelter. Pisces love to help others, but don’t expect them to actually solve anyone else’s problems—they tend to empathize rather than problem-solve.
