The Zodiac (Western)

Post  Jas DelaLuna on Tue Oct 04, 2011 10:53 am

Aries:
March 21--April 19.
Planet: Mars
Metal: Iron
Element: Fire
Stones: Ruby, bloodstone, diamond, garnet
Day: Tuesday
Flowers and Herbs: Thistle, wild rose, woodbine
Tree: Holly, thorn, chestnut
Aries Traits: Aries subjects are courageous leaders with a genuine concern for those they command, being responsible people, it is rare that they will use their subordinates to obtain their own objectives as leaders, but occasionally it does happen. They do not make very good followers because they are too "take charge". They may be unwilling to obey or submit to directions for which they can see no reason, or with which they disagree. They are much concerned with self, both positively and negatively - self-reliant but also self centered (sometimes) and concerned with their own personal advancement and physical satisfaction. Their immense energy makes them aggressive and restless, argumentative occasionally, headstrong, quick tempered, easily offended and capable of holding grudges if they feel themselves affronted. In your personal relationships Arians are frank, direct and candid, and make enthusiastic and generous friends.



Taurus:
April 20--May 21
Planet: Venus
Metal: Copper
Element: Earth
Stones: Sapphire, Emerald, Turquoise, Jade
Day: Friday
Flowers and Herbs: Violet, wild and red garden rose.
Tree: Almond, ash, cherry and myrtle.
Colour: Blue, green, turquoise, red or yellow.
Taurus Traits: The Taurean's characteristics are solidity, practicality, extreme determination and strength of will - no one will ever drive them, but they will willingly and loyally follow a leader they trust. They are stable, balanced, conservative, good, law-abiding citizens and lovers of peace, possessing all the best qualities of the bourgeoisie. As they have a sense of material values and physical possessions, respect for property and a horror of falling into debt, they will do everything in their power to maintain the security of the status quo and be somewhat hostile to change.


Gemini:
May 22--June 20.
Planet: Mercury
Metal: Mercury
Element: Air
Stones: Diamond, jade, agate, topaz
Day: Wednesday
Flowers and Herbs: Parsley, dill, hazel, fern, iris
Tree: Elder, filbert
Color: White, yellow, silver, pale grey, red or blue
Gemini Traits: Gemini, the sign of the Twins, is dual-natured, elusive, complex and contradictory. On the one hand it produces the virtue of versatility, and on the other the vices of two-facedness and flightiness. The sign is linked with Mercury, the planet of childhood and youth, and its subjects tend to have the graces and faults of the young. When they are good, they are very attractive; when they are bad they are more the worse for being the charmers they are. Like children they are lively, and happy, if circumstances are right for them, or egocentric, imaginative and restless. They take up new activities enthusiastically but lack application, constantly needing new interests, flitting from project to project as apparently purposelessly as a butterfly dancing from flower to flower. To them life is a game which must always be full of fresh moves and continuous entertainment, free of labor and routine. Changing horses in the middle of the stream is another small quirk in the Gemini personality which makes decision making, and sticking to a decision, particularly hard for them.


Cancer:
June 21--July 22.
Planet: Moon
Metal: Silver
Element: Water
Stones: Emerald
Day: Monday
Flowers and Herbs: Poppy, white rose, watercress
Tree: Willow
Color: Pale blue, silver, pearl, green or brown
Cancer Traits: The Cancerian character is the least clear-cut of all those associated with the signs of the zodiac. It can range from the timid, dull, shy and withdrawn to the most brilliant, and famous. Cancerians are to be found through the whole range of human activity. It is a fundamentally conservative and home-loving nature, appreciating the nest like quality of a secure base to which the male can retire when he needs a respite from the stresses of life, and in which the Cancerian woman can exercise her strong maternal instincts. The latter tends to like and to have a large family. `Nest like' is an appropriate adjective for the Cancerian home, for its inhabitants tend to favor the dark, mysterious but comfortable type of house which has something of the air of a den about it, a place which belongs to the family rather than existing as a showcase to impress visitors.
That is not to say that the Cancerian is unsociable, just that for them there is a time to socialize and a time to be solitary, and this is part of the apparent contradiction in their nature. Outwardly they can appear formidable - thick-skinned, unemotional, uncompromising, obstinately tenacious, purposeful, energetic, shrewd, intuitive and wise, sometimes with a philosophical profoundity of thought verging on inspiration. Their intimates, however, may see a very different character, one with a sympathetic and kindly sensitivity to other people, especially those they love.


Leo:
July 23--August 22.
Planet: Sun
Metal: Gol.
Element: Fire
Stones: Amber, ruby, diamond
Day: Sunday
Flowers and Herbs: Marigold, sunflower, hops
Tree: Willow
Color: Gold, yellow, blood red, green
Leo Traits: The Leo type is the most dominant, spontaneously creative and extrovert of all the zodiacal characters. In grandeur of manner, splendor of bearing and magnanimity of personality, they are the monarch's among humans as the lion is king of beasts. They are ambitious, courageous, dominant, strong willed, positive, independent, self-confident there is no such a word as doubt in their vocabularies, and they are self-controlled. Born leaders, either in support of, or in revolt against, the status quo. They are at their most effective when in a position of command, their personal magnetism and innate courtesy of mind bringing out the best of loyalty from subordinates. They are uncomplicated, knowing exactly what they want and using all their energies, creativeness and resolution to get it, as well as being certain that they will get whatever they are after. Their followers know where they are with Leonians. Leonians think and act bigger than others would normally dare; the ambitiousness of their schemes and idealism sometimes daunt their followers, their practical hardheadedness and ability to go straight to the heart of any problem reassures those who depend on them. If Leonians meet with setbacks they thrive on the adversity.


Virgo:
August 23--September 22.
Planet: Mercury
Metal: Platinum
Element: Earth
Stones: Cornelian, jade, jasper
Day: Wednesday
Flowers and Herbs: Rosemary, madonna, lily, valerian
Tree: Elder
Color: Pastel blue, peach, yellow, gold, black
Virgo Traits: Virgo is the only zodiacal sign represented by a female. It is sometimes thought of as a potentially creative girl, delicately lovely; sometimes as a somewhat older woman, intelligent but rather pedantic and spinsterish. The latter impression is sometimes confirmed by the Virgoan preciseness, refinement, fastidious love of cleanliness, hygiene and good order, conventionality and aristocratic attitude of reserve. They are usually observant, shrewd, critically inclined, judicious, patient, practical supporters of the status quo, and tend toward conservatism in all departments of life. On the surface they are emotionally cold, and sometimes this goes deeper, for their habit of suppressing their natural kindness may in the end cause it to atrophy, with the result that they shrink from committing themselves to friendship, make few relationships, and those they do make they are careful to keep superficial


Libra:
September 23--October 22.
Planet: Venus.
Metal: Copper
Element: Air
Stones: Opal, lapis lazuli, beryl, sapphire
Day: Friday
Flowers and Herbs: Violet, white rose
Tree: Almond, walnut, plum, mrytle
Color: Royal blue, cerulean, green, black
Libra Traits: Libra is the only inanimate sign of the zodiac, all the others representing either humans or animals. Many modern astrologers regard it as the most desirable of zodiacal types because it represents the zenith of the year, the high point of the seasons, when the harvest of all the hard work of the spring is reaped. There is a mellowness and sense of relaxation in the air as mankind enjoys the last of the summer sun and the fruits of his toil. Librans too are among the most civilized of the twelve zodiacal characters and are often good looking. They have elegance, charm and good taste, are naturally kind, very gentle, and lovers of beauty, harmony (both in music and social living) and the pleasures that these bring. They have good critical faculty and are able to stand back and look impartially at matters which call for an impartial judgment to be made on them. But they do not tolerate argument from anyone who challenges their opinions, for once they have reached a conclusion, its truth seems to them self-evident; and among their faults is an impatience of criticism and a greed for approval. But their characters are on the whole balanced, diplomatic and even tempered.


Scorpio:
October 23--November 21.
Planet: Mars & Pluto
Metal: Iron & Platonium
Element: Water
Stones: Topaz, ruby, jet
Day: Tuesday
Flowers and Herbs: Sweet basil, purple heather
Tree: Holly, blackthorn.
Colour: Deep reds, shadow black, brown
Scorpio Traits: Scorpios are the most intense, profound, powerful characters in the zodiac. Even when they appear self-controlled and calm there is a seething intensity of emotional energy under the placid exterior. They are like the volcano not far under the surface of a calm sea, it may burst into eruption at any moment. But those of us who are particularly perceptive will be aware of the harnessed aggression, the immense forcefulness, magnetic intensity, and often strangely hypnotic personality under the tranquil, but watchful composure of Scorpio. In conventional social gatherings they are pleasant to be with, thoughtful in conversation, dignified, and reserved, yet affable and courteous; they sometimes possess penetrating eyes which make their shier companions feel naked and defenseless before them. In their everyday behavior they give the appearance of being withdrawn from the center of activity, yet those who know them will recognize the watchfulness that is part of their character. They need great self-discipline, because they are able to recognize the qualities in themselves that make them different from other humans, and to know their utterly conventional natures can be used for great good, or great evil. Their tenacity and willpower are immense, their depth of character and passionate conviction overwhelming, yet they are deeply sensitive and easily moved by their emotions.


Sagittarius:
November 22--December 21.
Planet: Jupiter
Metal: Tin
Element: Fire
Stones: Saphire, amethyst, topaz
Day: Thursday.
Flowers and Herbs: Carnation, sage
Tree: Mulberry, vine, chestnut
Colour: Lilac, mauve, purple, indigo, goldred
Sagittarius Traits: Sagittarians have a positive outlook on life, are full of enterprise, energy, versatility, adventurousness and eagerness to extend experience beyond the physically familiar. They enjoy travelling and exploration, the more so because their minds are constantly open to new dimensions of thought. They are basically ambitious and optimistic, and continue to be so even when their hopes are dashed. Their strongly idealistic natures can also suffer many disappointments without being affected. They are honorable, honest, trustworthy, truthful, generous and sincere, with a passion for justice. They are usually on the side of the underdog in society they will fight for any cause they believe to be just, and are prepared to be rebellious. They balance loyalty with independence.


Capricorn:
December 22--January 19.
Planet: Saturn
Metal: Lead
Element: Earth
Stones: Onyx, jet, garnet, opal
Day: Saturday
Flowers and Herbs: Nightshade, rue, snowdrop
Tree: Pine, cypress, yew, spruce
Color: Black, grey, violet, red, brown
Capricorn Traits: Capricorn is one of the most stable and (mostly) serious of the zodiacal types. These independent, rocklike characters have many sterling qualities. They are normally confident, strong willed and calm. These hardworking, unemotional, shrewd, practical, responsible, persevering, and cautious to the extreme persons, are capable of persisting for as long as is necessary to accomplish a goal they have set for themselves. In their methodical, tough, stubborn, unyielding way, they persist against personal hardship, putting their families and/or their work before their own needs and welfare to reach their objectives long after others have given up and fallen by the wayside. Their intellects are sometimes very subtle. They think profoundly and deeply, throughly exploring all possibilities before deciding on a 'safe' alternative. They have good memories and an insatiable yet methodical desire for knowledge. They are rational, logical and clearheaded, have good concentration, delight in debate by luring their adversaries into traps and confounding them with logic.


Aquarius:
20 January - 18 February
Planet: Uranus
Metal: Uranium
Element: Air
Stones: Zircon, amber, Black Onyx
Day: Saturday
Flowers and Herbs: Snowdrop, foxglove
Tree: Pine
Color: All colours esp electric blue.
Aquaris Traits: Aquarians basically possess strong and attractive personalities. They fall into two principle types: one shy, sensitive, gentle and patient; the other exuberant, lively and exhibitionist, sometimes hiding the considerable depths of their character under a cloak of frivolity. Both types are strong willed and forceful in their different ways and have strong convictions, though as they seek truth above all things, they are usually honest enough to change their opinions, however firmly held, if evidence comes to light which persuades them that they have been mistaken. They have a breadth of vision that brings diverse factors into a whole, and can see both sides of an argument without shilly-shallying as to which side to take. Consequently they are unprejudiced and tolerant of other points of view. This is because they can see the validity of the argument, even if they do not accept it themselves. "Be open to truth, from whatever source it comes," and are prepared to learn from everyone.


Pisces:
19 February - 20 March
Planet: Jupiter & Neptune
Metal: Tin
Element: Water
Stones: Saphine, emerald, amethyst
Day: Thursday
Flowers and Herbs: Heliotrope, carnation, opium
Tree: Willow, elm
Color: Purple, violet, amethyst, white, green.
Pisces Traits: Pisceans possess a gentle, patient, malleable nature. They have many generous qualities and are friendly, good natured, kind and compassionate, sensitive to the feelings of those around them, and respond with the utmost sympathy and tact to any suffering they encounter. They are deservedly popular with all kinds of people, partly because their easygoing, affectionate, submissive natures offer no threat or challenge to stronger and more exuberant characters. They accept the people around them and the circumstances in which they find themselves rather than trying to adapt them to suit themselves, and they patiently wait for problems to sort themselves out rather than take the initiative in solving them. They are more readily concerned with the problems of others than with their own.

It's funny because there are some who say that the most compatible signs to go with are the signs that share the same element as you. I've seen that said in several places. To me, it kind of makes sense, given the fact that they'd understand each other on the same level. Air signs go with logic, Water signs go with emotion, Fire signs go with passion and Earth signs go with practicality. What do you guys think?

Well I agree with the faculties you came up with for each element. However, i do not believe that the optimal balanced relationship is obtained by dating within your element. Especially since each sign is a different expression of that element. Saying that dating should take place within the same element does not allow for the individuality of each sign. Or even more so, the variety of the people within that sign, because of other astrological influences.
If you want a true match, you should construct a chart for yourself, because that is the only way to see the complete astrological picture.

I've never liked to base my self completely off of astrology, though lol Humans are diverse and unique, so they can't be completely categorized by anything lol However, I think astrology is a great way to help you understand yourself and others. I think that making a chart would indeed be the most effective way of figuring out yourself and your compatibility. Smile
