2000 years ago, astrology was the same as science as we know it today. The zodiac (as in name) actually derived from the Greek word that meant ‘circle of animals’. Since it began, the Zodiac signs have been used to reflect characteristics and the personality traits of the individual. There are 12 zodiac signs across the 12 months and they are split into four elements; earth, fire, water and air.
The earth signs are Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. As the same suggests they are the kind of people that bring us back down to earth. They are fairly emotional people and are known to be realistic and conservative. The water signs are Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio. Those whose sign is water are mysterious and intuitive in nature. They are also known to be highly emotional, loyal and incredibly sensitive. The fire signs are Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. Those that are part of the fire signs are known to be dynamic and passionate. They seek adventure, forgive easily but also have a short temper. Lastly, the air signs are Aquarius, Gemini and Libra. They are known to be rational and highly sociable, one of their strengths being communication. The air signs are good at giving advice but can be superficial.
