Zodiac Meanings and Types
It is common knowledge that there are 12 different zodiac signs (one for every month)— but did you know that it started with 13?
When it was originally created, there was another sign called Ophiuchus. However, it was later dropped because the Babylonians used a 12-month calendar and there was no room.

What is your sign?
Water Zodiac Signs
The people who fall into this category are typically emotional and sensitive. They are open and have strong emotions which makes them highly intuitive. The water and its zodiac signs are equally mysterious, making them an intriguing group to learn about.
The three water signs are Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.
Jun 21-Jul 23
Cancers are typically focused on their family and home. They are natural nurturers that take pride in their roots. They wear their hearts on their sleeves and tend to be highly emotional.
People with the Cancer sign may struggle in areas of rejection and forgiveness. Being so consumed by family, it is hard for a Cancer to feel like they are not wanted. As emotional as they are, too, they can be unforgiving at times, but are more than likely to come around after some time.
Oct 23-Nov 22
Scorpios tend to be brave, focused, intuitive, and faithful. They are strong-willed and once they set their mind to something, they are sure to achieve it. Scorpios are also intuitive.
A Scorpio may struggle with jealousy and manipulation. Being strong-willed and determined can make a Scorpio more likely to be associated with manipulation because they will do anything it takes.
Feb 18-Mar 20
Pisces are typically intuitive, kind, and selfless. They have a good sense of when someone is struggling and will do whatever they can to help.
Sometimes they take on another person’s emotions too much and are consumed by them. They look for an escape when things become too hard and can have a pessimistic attitude.
Fire Zodiac Signs
Fire zodiacs tend to be passionate, temperamental, and dynamic. They can have a short temper but forgive easily because of their self-awareness. This group is also full of energy and creativity and always looking for the next thing.
A fire zodiac is typically searching for their next adventure to try. If you’re an Aries or Leo that’s running out of ideas, check out some engaging new activities that you can include in your life.

Jul 23-Aug 23
Leos tend to be loyal, kind, optimistic, and energetic. They are likely to give a helping hand to those important to them and have a good view on life.

Earth Zodiac Signs

A Taurus tends to be generous, dependable, and patient. These are the people who will give the shirt off their backs to make another person more comfortable. They are not in a rush and seem to take life in strides.
The downside of being a Taurus is that laziness can consume them. Being laid back is a good thing, but it can lead to them not having motivation. Although they are dependable, they struggle with understanding others’ emotions.
Aug 23-Sept 23
Virgos are the more practical and analytical of the earth zodiac signs. They pay attention to detail and love solving a mystery. They still are reliable to those around and can be trusted to always try their best.
Someone with this zodiac can be overcritical, harsh, and judgmental. Being as analytical as they are, they don’t sugar-coat things and tell people how it is. Virgos tend to be critical about themselves and others.
Dec 22-Jan 20
Capricorns seem to have a system for everything they do. They are wise, disciplined, and patient. These are the people who think things through no matter how long it takes before making up their mind.
Once a Capricorn has made up their mind about something they are unlikely to stray from that opinion. They also are shy and only have a small group of close friends.
Air Zodiac Signs

They tend to lack consistency and direction, which makes them more prone to stress. They are knowledgeable about so many things that it is hard for them to pay attention to details, so making decisions for them is also a weak spot.
Sept 23-Oct 23
Libras are the romantic type. They are passionate, charming, and diplomatic. Being an air sign, Libras love to have conversations and hear all sides of a story, making them a good person to go to for advice.

Jan 20-Feb 18
