Descriptions of the Different Zodiac Signs

Astrology has been around really since the beginning of time. There are different branches of astrological thought from Chinese Astrology to Indian Astrology to Western Astrology.
But basically, astrological or zodiac signs as they are also called represent twelve sections of the zodiac. So it is believed that our human activity is based on the principles as represented by these twelve signs which indicate what kind of personality type and characteristics we each have. These are differentiated depending on your birth date. And other influences are the sun signs and moon signs.
In Indian astrology, the 12 signs are associated with the constellations, whereby in Chinese and Western astrology these links are not part of the equations. In Western astrology more emphasis is placed on the movement of the sun, moon and planets through each of the signs. And in Chinese astrology, they believe the emphasis is more on the time, with the zodiac signs working on cycles of the years, months, and hours of the day.
So again depending on the date of your birth you will fall into one of the 12 signs which are Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. Each sign has a corresponding symbol that goes with it as well.
And depending which of the signs you fall under, there are a whole range of standard characteristics and behaviors that are said to be consistent with that particular birth range. This can be helpful when looking at different relationships and trying to figure out how to communicate and relate to another person.
Although it is certainly not carved in stone, it can be a very interested exercise to go through especially if you are having problems with a relationship whether at work or at home, to look at the different signs and then see how you can change your behavior to best work with the behavior of that person’s sign.
Some characteristics are quite uncanny, for example Libras like to keep the balance and what everyone to be happy so they will avoid conflict and are often the peacekeepers in the family. Aries are more demanding and what to get right to the point. Whereby someone who is a Scorpio is very passionate and firey but can also need to withdraw and be alone to find themselves again.
So if you are dealing with someone whose inherent characteristic is to no fight yet you feel like you need to scream and yell and get it all out on the table before you can move on, it can be worthwhile to understand the characteristics of the other person and do some strategizing first.
