A Quick & Easy Guide To Astrology

      I have been so interested in learning more about astrology lately and I feel like in the last couple of years I have learned a lot! Astrology is a very complex and deep system that I think takes years and even a lifetime to fully understand. The universe is so vast and complex and that means that you are too! I think that if anyone is interested in learning more about astrology, the best place to start is with your own birth chart. You can get a free reading of your birth chart Here. By reading about and analyzing your birth chart you can begin to understand yourself on a much deeper level, why you do the things that you do, and also learn more about the world we live in and the people around us. I created a very basic guide to understanding Astrology that I hope inspires you to learn more about your signs and more about the amazing universe we all live in. Enjoy!

The Zodiac Signs
December 22 - January 19
Capricorns tend to come across as being very serious, independent, and in control of their lives. Capricorns make great managers of people and projects because they are very practical and grounded. Capricorns can have a hard time accepting differences of other people which can make them come across as aggressive.

January 20 - February 18
Aquarius people are known to be very shy and quiet but at the same time very energetic. They are deep thinkers, highly intelligent and love to help other people. Aquarius signs are known to be very visionary and goal oriented people but can come across as "having their head in the clouds" or being "air-headed".

February 19 - March 20
Pisces people are known to be very sensitive, emotional and creative people. Pisces are said to be the most intuitive, spiritual and even psychic of all the signs. They are very wise and tolerant of other people but can seem very withdrawn and introverted from the rest of the world.

March 21- April 19
Aries are said to be the fiercest of the fire signs. They are very bold, brave, aggressive, and they make great leaders. Aries can often come across as being bossy and competitive but they know what they want in life and they are not afraid to go after it.

April 20 - May 20
Taurus signs are known to be very grounded, determined and loyal people. They seem to always have two feet on the ground and people of this sign love the sense of stability. Taurus signs are known to be very stubborn and can be loyal to a fault.

May 21 - June 20
Gemini is known as the "two faced sign" or the sign of duality. This dualism can often make them confused about their true feelings and generally indecisive people. Gemini's are known to be great communicators, very intelligent and willing to experience new things every day.

June 21 - July 22
Cancers are said to be the most shy, emotional and guarded of all the signs. Cancers are known to be very loyal, empathetic and great home-makers. Cancers can be very tough to get to know because they come across as moody, pessimistic and even insecure. Like the other water signs, they are very in-tune with themselves on a spiritual and intuitive level.

July 23 - August 22
Leos are natural born leaders, confident and very difficult to resist because they love life and come across as very optimistic people. Leos can also be arrogant and self-absorbed but on the other hand they are very generous and warm-hearted people.

August 23 - September 22
Virgos are known to be very practical, organized and analytical people. They are known to be the most careful and thoughtful sign because of their attention to detail and cleanliness. Because of this, Virgos tend to be very hard on themselves and on other people, as well as constant worriers.

September 23 - October 22
Libras are the sign of justice and equality. You can always count on a Libra to be fair, balanced and level headed. Libras are known to be great listeners and advice givers but can often find themselves burnt out and feeling unmotivated because they give themselves to others so often.

October 23 - November 21
Scorpios are said to be the most misunderstood sign. People often think that Scorpios are mean and aggressive people but really they are just highly emotional, sensitive and in tune with the dark side of life. Because of this, they observe the world around them unlike any other sign and are often very spiritual and smart people. Scorpios can also be very insecure and have a tendency to hold onto grudges.

November 22 - December 21
Sagittarius signs are known to be the greatest travellers and wanderers of the world. They have a very open mind, love new experiences and often have a great sense of humor. On the other hand, they can be known as flaky, impatient, and unreliable.
The Three Major Signs
       It is important to not only analyze your sun sign but to also understand your moon sign and your rising sign. You are not only one sign, you are made up of the many different signs found throughout your birth chart, this is what makes everyone different and unique. If you feel like you can't relate to your sun sign this may be because there are other factors or signs at play. For example, I am an Aries sun but I am extremely shy, emotional and introverted and this is because I have a Pisces moon and a Scorpio rising which are both water signs. I can be quick to anger, full of energy and determined like an Aries but I relate more to my sensitive and emotional water signs.

Your Sun Sign
      Your sun sign represents your main personality traits, what you're good at and in essence, who you really are as a person. It is where the position of the sun was on the day you were born.

Your Moon Sign
      Your moon sign represents the emotional side of you, your inner world, and what makes you feel comforted and safe. It is where the position of the moon was on the day you were born.

Your Rising Sign
      Your rising sign is another important sign because it represents how people view you or the type of first impression you make. When people guess what your sun sign is they will often guess your rising sign because these are the personality traits you give off to other people. Your rising sign is the zodiac that was rising in the eastern horizon on the day you were born.

      This guide is obviously just the tip of the ice burg as there is so so much more to discover about Astrology.  But I hope that it was helpful to you and inspires you to learn more about yourself, your birth chart, as well as other people around you. Astrology is super fun to learn and I think the key is to have fun with it and keep an open mind!
