All About Zodiac Signs

Zodiac signs are among some of the most common and widely recognizable symbols in modern society, their use dating back to the twelve constellations named by the Greek gods of ancient times. Everyone is born under a certain sign depending on the date (day and month) you were born. Depending on which Zodiac sign you were born under, you may naturally display certain traits that affect your personality, compatibility with other signs, your natural abilities, the path you may be destined to take in life or love, and even your physical health. You may also hear Zodiac signs referred to as Astrological signs, Astrology signs, Horoscope signs, etc.

Regardless of people's personal interest or belief in Astrology as a whole, there has to be something said about the insight reading into one's Zodiac sign offers. It can paint a clear archetype of someone's personality which leaves most people thinking, “wow, that really DOES sound like me”. Some of the information you can find out about someone with only the knowledge of which of the twelve Zodiac signs they were born under include: positive traits, negative traits, what symbol embodies them, the career they may end up in, their personality, how they view others, insights to their physical health, what other Zodiac sign they get along with, and who they will be most compatible with in love.

Zodiac signs are just as popular today as ever; you see them tattooed on people of all different races, cultures, nationalities, and age groups. Many people who want to get a small but meaningful tattoo end up getting their Zodiac sign on their body, typically on the shoulder, back, leg, wrist, or ankle. Another popular area for women to display their Zodiac signs is on the back of the neck so they can opt to hide or display it depending on the circumstance.

Learning about the twelve Zodiac signs is a great way to find out who you will naturally get along with so that you can make choices leading to successful romantic or business relationships while avoiding those who may be a detriment to your own personality. Men and women have the same Zodiac signs as which sign you were born under is only determined by the day and month that you were born.

Overall, details about Zodiac signs are much broader than if you get your personalized horoscope reading as most horoscopes will go in-depth about your sign based on the hour, minute, or even second you were born, whereas your Zodiac sign is a more generalized description about a person based on the day and month of their birth. Below is a quick and easy reference to find out which sign you were born under as well as a brief description of each. Note: this is in chronological order according to the calendar year.
