Understanding Women's Astrology Signs

Hello, ladies! Ever wonder what it means when someone asks you your zodiac sign, or what your horoscope is, and this conversation goes like this:

"What's your horoscope sign?"

"I'm a Virgo."

"Ohhhhhhh...that makes sense!"

And you've sat there wondering, "What does that mean?"

All the astrological signs are in alliance with constellations; originally, astrologers saw the world as consisting of Elements (similar to how we perceive seasons): Fire, Air, Water, and Earth. All signs fall under one of these Elements unless you are a Cusp, but the Elements represent different character traits which hold some truth for everyone. They also exist in States, where astrologers consider the actual properties of, let's say, for example, Fire and a similarity to one of the four Fire astrological signs. I'll explain each sign briefly, but will write more articles per individual sign and I am more than willing to take requests. So how do Elements and States define us? How does it affect comparability when you research friends or romantic relationships? Read below and find out...

Fire signs. These ladies are known to be passionate, imaginative, self-assured, self-sufficient, selfish, forceful, inspirational, temperamental, courageous, creative, bossy, combustible, sexy, and charming.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): The third fire sign in the zodiac wheel, they are also the ninth sign. Sags like to explore and have the first-hand experiences with anything, which helps them discover their individual purposes in this lifetime. Sagittarius women seek the truth (subjective) and are not afraid to be blunt when it comes to their beliefs. These signs are adventurers, open-minded, interested in deep philosophies, desire freedom, enthusiastic, live at a fast pace, and enjoy stepping over boundaries and pushing limits.

Leo (Jul. 23 – Aug. 22): The second fire sign in the zodiac wheel, they are also the fifth sign. Daughters of the sun are often are stuck with the stereotype that they like to be on the "center of the stage," in the middle of the spotlight; the stereotype is true. Lions are strong, and they draw from their internal confidence to keep changing on and to inspire others. As the sign of Leo is ruled by the Sun, Leo girls have the tendency to believe that they are connected to everyone and everything and have the desire to want to please people and make sure their universe and everyone it in is happy. These signs are idealistic, romantic, self-confident, leaders, fearless, strong, proud, and vain.

Aries (Mar. 21 – Apr. 19): The first fire sign and the first sign of the zodiac wheel. Aries are innovators and somehow are able to make the impossible become reality; not only are they good leaders but they are also, what I call, the most magnetizing fire sign. Although they are known to be impulsive, Aries ladies are endlessly brave people and always have the energy to complete the tasks they set out before them. These signs can be arrogant and somewhat egotistic, but they are dynamic, super playful, hard workers, quick to make decisions, and are winners.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – Mar. 20): Pisces is the third water sign on the zodiac wheel and the twelfth sign as well. Women born under the sign of Pisces are very much focused on discovering themselves and their inner journeys. They also have a hard time accepting the reality of this world and at times prefer to see reality through an illusionary lens to either better understand or cope with life. Pisces can either be in reality or not, which makes them sometimes hard to contact, or even relate to because it's almost as if they are living on two separate dimensions, but they are always able to be there for others and enjoy putting their needs before their own. Pisces girls are charitable, caring, can be rather shy, pulled by their emotions, unpredictable, lazy, intuitive, and swim from discomfort.

Cancer (Jun. 21 – Jul. 22): Cancer ladies are the first water sign on the zodiac wheel and the fourth sign. Cancers are known for having a very nurturing and maternal nature to them. Not only that, they will invite you into your home and consider you family, finding a perfect and exclusive spot for you in their heart and you will never be forgotten. Daughters of this water sign can be hurt easily and will then take time to hide away and heal themselves but will eventually return to their friends and family and will continue on being their strong-willed and happy selves. Cancers are protectors, love being apart of or creating a community, stay away from angry confrontations, possessive, overly sensitive, emotionally manipulative and hold much self-respect.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Scorpios are the second water sign and the eighth sign on the zodiac wheel. Girls born under the sign of Scorpio are intense, to say the least, and always need to understand others': motives, thoughts, lies, truths, and life story in order to truly understand them and keep themselves in a place of power in order to protect themselves. As I call them, Scorpios are the most magnetizing water sign; they are secretive, penetrating and powerful. Scorpio women love deeply and can be vindictive beyond belief; they will be your best friend or will destroy you. These signs are lustful, competitive, self-indulgent, clever, emotionally repressed, fearless, aware, and see the world in black and white.
