The 12 Different Zodiac Signs And The Meanings Behind Them

Zodiac signs are an intriguing subject for study. Humans fall under 12 different zodiac signs.

Each of the signs has different characteristics, and these characteristics influence our life to a certain extent. Below we’re going to cover all the zodiac signs and their unique qualities in chronological order.



The sun represents the first stage in the evolution of man and his place in the universe. This is evident in the character and make-up of the Aries personality.

As an Aries individual matures, they understand their karmic responsibility and accept that they are not the center of the universe but a part of the larger social order.

Aries are born ‘doers.’ Their astrological symbol is The Ram. This symbol is quite fitting due to the sheer force of energy and enthusiasm with which Aries accomplish their goals.

It’s safe to say that Aries “ram” their way to success and this is a good quality to have. All too often people tend to be too timid or overthink what they need to do. Aries knows what they want and go for it full speed ahead.

The Taurus is the second stage in the evolution of man. Taurus can be a tad possessive but will devote themselves to people they regard as their own.

Their possessiveness makes them excellent protectors and providers. They conserve psychical resources, and their strongest desire is personal security.

When disappointed in their world, they tend to retreat into themselves. Taurus believe in creating loving personal relationships. A breach of their trust can drive them to seek comfort in others. Taurus may sacrifice meaningful relationships if they don’t feel emotionally secure.

This sign is ruled by Venus, the planet of beauty and pleasure, and astrologically, their representative character is The Bull. They can be bull-headed for sure but are also gentle giants.

The Gemini is the third stage in the evolution of humankind. Gemini is interested in developing their intellect and understands the universe. They are primarily concerned with gathering information, and they express their innovative ideas willfully.

A Gemini can become a serious scholar and a careful researcher. Without proper guidance, they become immature and kind of “jack of all trades but master of none.” Mercury rules the sign, and a Gemini person is usually talkative and quick-witted.

They do have a tendency to bounce from one personality to another. It all depends on their mood for the day. Their unpredictable behavior may drive some people away because of the lack of consistency. However, there’s never a dull moment with a Gemini.

Cancer is the fourth stage in the evolution of mankind. The need for cancer is not individual survival but survival through the perpetuation of species. It is a sign of nurture and fertility. They are family-oriented and form very close personal relationships.

People who were born under the Cancer sign are doers and achieve anything they set their minds to. However, they often react emotionally to circumstances. They tend to act first, think later.

This behavior can make them do or say things that they later regret. They have a short fuse, but they do love deeply. Once you’re a part of a Cancers life, you’ll be protected and cherished beyond belief.

Leo represents the fifth stage in the evolution of humanity. Their primary need is to express the creative urge of man. Their sign is represented by The Lion. They’re not entirely emotional types, choosing to keep a lot of their feelings private.

The lion is an expression of man’s ‘ego’ and strength. Just like we’re top of the food chain in the human world, lions are top of the food chain in the animal world.

If Leo’s ego is hurt, they can become domineering, self–centered, stubborn, and unreceptive. They are, however, natural entertainers and get great pleasure in helping others. To say they know how to enjoy life is an understatement.
