Aries (March 21 - April 19)
The Aries constellation is also known as “The Ram”. But not just any ram. In Greek mythology, Aries was a ram with wings and went to represent the god of war, Ares. This checks out, as the sign is most notorious for their determination and pioneer mentality.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Despite being well known for its distinct bull-like shape, the constellation of Taurus is named after the Roman god Jupiter (known as Zeus in Greek mythology). This correlation was made due to the story of Jupiter turning himself into a bull to visit the mortal world. This constellation also acted as a sign of fertility and spring. Similar to their celestial spirit animal, Taurus is thought to be both ambitious and full of life.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
The shape of the Gemini constellation is known for its resemblance to the ancient Greek twin sons of Zeus. For this reason, the constellation of Gemini is also called “The Twins”. The twins are represented by the castor and pull stars, the brightest stars in the constellation. The myth says that when the castor was killed, Pollux being a demigod asked Zeus to let him share his immortality with his beloved twin and patter in crime. From this, they were both transformed into the Gemini constellation. The symbolism of the two twins is a great depiction of the sign's great adaptability and communication skill.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Due to the appearance of multiple legs many refer to this constellation as The Crab, another creature thought to have battled Hercules. During the second of the 12 labors, the giant crab is said to have been sent by the jealous goddess Hera to attack Hercules in vengeance. Cancers are known for their loyalty, intuitiveness, and intuitiveness.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
The Leo constellation favors the shape of a lion and is thought to represent the mythical Nemean lion, historically killed by Hercules. The ancient Egyptians were able to easily confirm its arrival by taking note of the Nile tide and its timing. Just as the Nemean lion, Leos are associated with confidence and loyalty.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
As the largest constellation of all the signs, the Virgo constellation is frequently said to look like a lady holding wheat. For the ancient Greeks and Romans, this is thought to symbolize harvest or prosperity. The sign is often associated with justice, persistence, and diligence. For this reason, Virgo's are often observed as being practical, dependable, and analytical.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Libras tend to stand out for their charm and charisma, however, in the cosmos, the constellation of libra happens to be the only zodiac constellation not depicted by a person, animal, or mythical being. Instead, the constellation pictures two scales that many believe to be held by the Greek goddess of justice Astrea. Due to this, Libras are well known for their balance in terms of self-indulgence and generosity.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
As you might’ve guessed, the constellation of Scorpio looks exactly like a Scorpio, but the meaning goes much further beyond that comparison. Rumor has it that the constellation was created by the Greek deity Artemis, the goddess of hunting, wilderness, and chastity. This may be a prime reason for Scorpio's reputation of bravery and resourcefulness.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
The Greeks referred to this constellation as Sagittarius the archer due to its resemblance to the centaur, who in their mythology, was represented by a bow and arrow. It is one of the largest southern constellations and also one of the easiest to find due to its close proximity to the famous Milky Way. Sagittarius are typically known for their great sense of humor and freedom.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Named by the ancient greeks, the Capricorn constellation is also well known as The Sea-Goat due to comparisons made early on to a goat with a fish in place of a tail. Legend has it that this mythical creature was also the first hybrid created by the messenger of God, Hermes. Capricorn symbolizes responsibility and discipline.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Dubbed by the ancient Babylonians, it’s no wonder that, as one of the oldest constellations, it’s thought to symbolize wisdom and knowledge. The constellation of Aquarius was thought to resemble an elder man pouring from a pitcher of water, and for that reason was considered the rainmaker.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Represented by the Roman goddess Venus (a.k.a Aphrodite), the Pisces constellation is one of the largest in the northern sky. Known as The Fishes, the constellation is meant to represent Aphrodite, the Greek goddess that notably turned herself into a fish in an attempt to escape danger. Ironically enough the sign is noted for their escapist ways, as they tend to be very artistic and intuitive.
