Most Likeable Trait:
Optimism

Ruled by Jupiter, planet of fortune, you appear to breeze through life. You are Lady Luck’s companion who seems always to be in the right place at the right time. Naturally, this makes for a cheerful and ebullient disposition. You have your dark moments, but clouds roll over quickly. You are too interested in what is going to happen tomorrow to fret long about what went wrong today.

In Sagittarius, the enthusiasm of fire, the restless mutable quality, and the jovial influence of Jupiter combine to produce an expansive personality who cannot be confined. Independence is your guiding principle. You are a free, adventurous spirit who thrives on new ideas and constant change of scene. Somewhere you picked up a chronic case of wanderlust, and you have no desire to be cured. The grass is always greener someplace else and your restless, inquiring nature requires travel, excitement, and the unconventional. Sagittarius, like its opposite sign Gemini, wants to know-but where-as Gemini’s are happy to sample a new idea, Sagittarians will follow it as far as it will go. In the zodiac, Sagittarius symbolizes the search for wisdom; this is the sign of the philosopher and the explorer.

Sagittarians are hard to pin down emotionally. You don’t welcome enduring profound relationships. Sooner or later, you’ll unknot the tie that binds.

Friendship however, is a different matter. You are always willing to be a pal-and you are the nicest friend in the zodiac. Kind, openhearted, jovial, completely free of malice, you are always doing favors for others. Your way of helping doesn’t put the recipient under heavy obligation. “No Strings” is a guiding Sagittarian motto.

Prizing freedom, you willingly grant it to others. You don’t meddle in other people’s plans, interfere with that they think best for themselves, and you aren’t possessive or jealous.

A sense of humor is among your most endearing traits. High-spirited and congenial, you are a gifted conversationalist, a wonderful storyteller, and a born entertainer. Writing, publishing, TV, communications are enterprises in which there are many Sagittarians.

You Jupiter-ruled people are unusually versatile and do a number of tasks well. What you lack is staying power. Before you finish with one project, you are off to meet the next challenge. One reason is that you become bored doing the same things, but another is simply that you must move on-and up.

In business you are imaginative and clever, ready to accept the new and to use it. But you perform best when there’s something really important at stake. When you’re down to your last chance to win, when it’s now or never, you’ll put everything you own on the turn of a card and redouble the stakes. You believe in your luck.

You are straightforward and honest. Your frankness makes you easy to deal with because one doesn’t have to spend time figuring out the hidden significance of unspoken clues or nuances. There is no hidden significance. What you say is what you mean. Your blunt remarks are not said in spite, however, but simply because you don’t know how to beat around the bush. Ironically, you are rather think-skinned and too easily hurt by a thoughtless action or careless rebuff.

Sagittarians are among the most likeable people in the zodiac. True, you can be extravagant and wasteful, even on occasion reckless and irresponsible. True, your life is full of forgotten appointments, missed deadlines and unfinished projects. True, your emotions can be shallow and your commitments almost nonexistent. Overriding everything, though, is the fact that you’re fun to be with. So what if you promise the moon and everyone knows you won’t deliver. You know it too. There’s nothing underhanded or secretive in the way you deal. You play with all your cards on the table.

Impetuous, buoyant, charming, you hitch your wagon to the merry-go-round of life and ride it with insouciant elegance.

Pisces February 19 – Mar 20

Pisces
February 19 – Mar 20

Quality: Mutable-Pisces is receptive, intuitive and emotional, imaginative, romantic, impressionable and mystical, adaptable and very changeable.

Ruling Planet: Neptune-Ancient god of the sea; second of the modern planets to be discovered in 1846. In astrology, Neptune is the planet of illusion, glamour, mystery and deception.

Symbol: Two fishes tied to one another and swimming in opposite directions. This signifies hidden depths, shifting emotional currents, conflicting desires and extremes of temperament.

Dominant Keyword:I BELIEVE

Polarity or Opposite: Virgo-Pisces is the sign of dreams and mysticism. Its natives trust their intuitions and feelings and tend to seek more spiritual values in life. Virgo. Pisces’ opposite sign, is the sign of work and service. Virgo people deal in facts and reality; they are practical and strive for material success.

Body Parts Ruled by Pisces: The feet-Pisceans have beautifully shaped, sensitive feet that are unfortunately prone to aches, bunions and corns. Ill-fitting shoes are a particular hazard to people of this sign.

Lucky Day: Friday

Lucky Numbers: 2 and 6

Birthstone: Aquamarine-Magnifies occult powers and brings serenity of mind. It also protects its wearer while traveling on the sea.

Color: Pale green and turquoise-the dreamy colors of the sea.

Dangers: Pisceans have a high susceptibility to alcohol and drugs. They are also easily drawn into unpredictable situations and to unbalanced people.

Most Likeable Trait: compassion

Just as the first sign of the zodiac, Aries, represents a new beginning so the 12th and last sign, Pisces, is the end of the circle, the sign of eternity, reincarnation and spiritual rebirth. Many astrologers say that Pisces is a link to the spirit world and that you who are born under this sign are old souls, for they believe Pisces to have experienced other lives in the past.

Pisces have an otherworldly quality. In mystical terms, you are described as being half body and half spirit, pulled between material existence and spiritual concerns, posed of the knowledge that you will never be entirely at home in the real world.

Like natives of the other water signs (cancer and Scorpio), you have the ability to see deeply into the human psyche. Subtle and intuitive, you are born with the gift of prophecy, and may even become involved in the occult, ESP and spiritualism. If you get a hunch, others would be wise to pay attention.

Ruled By Neptune, planet of mystery and illusion, your personality is elusive, fey and quick silvery. Your element is water, and the imagery of the sea is evident in how easily you adapt to the ever-shifting currents around you. More than natives of any other sign, you are enormously influenced by your surroundings and by the people who touch your life. Indeed, you have a unique ability to get under another person’s skin, to take literally, as you’re own, another’s problems, joys and woes. At times you give away the very strength and emotional security you need for yourself.

You possess superb intuitions and a seemingly bottomless understanding of other people, yet your extraordinary sensitivity can be your most vulnerable point. You are too impressionable to each passing influence, too susceptible to someone else’s hard luck story or plea for help. For you, learning to say no can be a lifetime project and you may never learn how to do it at all.

Pisces is known as the sign of self-undoing, and you may become the creator of your own downfall. You are impractical and fall prey to overindulgence. You also have a penchant for picking the wrong companions. At times, your life may become so punctuated with trouble and heartache that you try desperately to escape-and then you are like Eliza jumping from ice floe to ice floe, with no clear sense of where you are headed. Conflicting emotions and desires pull you to and fro. You must fight hard for stability, for the strength of purpose and balance needed to combat the negativity of laziness, carelessness and emotional confusion.

This is not to imply that you lack backbone. Indeed, you are capable of great sacrifice and hard work in the service of a cause or an ideal. However, not many natives of this sign are suited to the hatish, rough and tumble world of business and commerce. Creative and intensely imaginative, you are more successful as a writer, musician or artist. Pisces is the sign of the poet and the dreamer and you strive to create a world that comes closer to your own unique vision.

Fundamentally unsure of yourself, you prefer to work alone rather than with people. You have an instinct for finding what appears to be the easy way out, and founder in the shallows of least resistance. This is why so many talented, charming, superior natives of this sign never attain the position in life to which their gifts entitle them.

You are a very special person whose sensitivity and awareness will always appeal to a select group. You are capable of high intellectual achievement and your magnetic, mysterious, engaging and delightful personality is heightened by an intriguing sense of drama.

You are also loyal, unselfish, and generous, always ready to help a friend who has fallen on hard times. Naturally kind, with a deep appreciation for the inner qualities of others, you are not concerned with the superficial and with what others see on the surface. You look at the inner soul, the essence. There is no more sensitive, perceptive friend, nor one more warmhearted, caring, devoted, and sentimental.

Libra Sept 22 – Oct 23

Libra
Sept 22 – Oct 23

Quality: Cardinal-Libra is active, artistic, easygoing, peaceable, prize beauty and harmony, is diplomatic, polished and very socially inclined.

Ruling Planet: Venus-Goddess of love and beauty. In astrology, Venus rules pleasure, social pursuits, art and adornment. Its influence also inclines toward self-indulgence and love of luxury.

Symbol: The scales-Signifying balance, equilibrium, order and justice.

Dominant Keyword: I BALANCE

Polarity or Opposite: Aries-Libra is the sign of marriage and partnership. Its natives are happiest functioning within a union and often loose their equilibrium and positive outlook when forced to be alone. Aries, Libra’s opposite sign, is the sign of ego, personality and self. Aries people tend to put themselves first and selfishness is one of their negative traits.

Body Parts Ruled by Libra: The lower back and buttocks and the kidneys-Librans suffer from lower back strain and problems in the lumbar region. They are also subject to kidney infections.

Lucky Day: Friday

Lucky Numbers: 6 and 9

Magical Birthstone: Opal-Brings financial success, frees its wearer from jealousy and greed, and imparts clear insight.

Color: Blue and Lavender-the colors of romance, harmony and refinement

Dangers: Libra people tend to stir up ill feelings from others in situations having to do with love. Because they are indecisive and sometimes make a declaration of love too easily, Librans both anger and disappoint lovers. They also have a tendency to be fickle and faithless.

Most Likeable Trait: Charm

Librans are easy to like, for you have a captivating charm, possess elegant taste, and are usually beautiful to look at. In addition, you have the gift of making others feel important, for you are a superb listener and instinctively know how to draw out another person.

Ruled by Venus, goddess of love and beauty, you admire loveliness in all its forms, in music, are, decoration-and people. Your home will always have a touch of elegance, and you love to entertain in style. You enjoy the comforts of life-all the things that money can buy.

A narcissist at heart, you expect admiration. You wish to be the jewel in the center of any setting, and you have a computer memory for any compliment ever paid to you. You tend to judge others by outward appearances. If someone has a charming facade, you won’t look any deeper. As a result you may become easy prey for a sophisticated schemer with an affable manner.

Libra is the zodiacal sign of Partnerships-in psychological terms the sign is outer-directed. Your energies are focused on melding and combining with other people; you are at your best in personal relationships. However, your main interest is on yourself within the relationship. You deal intuitively with other people’s emotions, and no one is better at understanding and taking into consideration another person’s point of view.  Yet all too soon that outside viewpoint will be lost or subsumed within your own subtly self-centered concerns.

Born under the sign of the Scales, you strive for balance and harmony and are happiest when your environment is ordered and serene. Peace is worth any price to you and usually you will go a long way out of your way to avoid friction and dissension. Because you see clearly every side of an argument, every possibility of a given course, you have the tact and ability to smooth over disputes. You are a born diplomat. In order to avoid an unpleasant scene, you will even stifle your own true feelings. In fact, far too often you are not sure what your true feelings are. Because you try to be all things to all people, there is a general impression that you are indecisive. You appear to be constantly poised on an edge, seemingly unable to move one way or another, balancing pro with con, advantage with disadvantage, risk with gain. Underneath your genial, calm surface, you have to struggle in order to make a decision.

Although you have superb instincts, you don’t trust them enough. You are likely to be an underachiever because of your easygoing, even-tempered attitude. For the most part, you don’t want anything badly enough to fight for it. The exception is when you’re denied a privilege to which you feel entitled. That ruffles your fur. Librans have a reputation for stubbornness. But that’s because you are sticklers for fairness. You resent being treated unfairly and become upset at inequity in the world at large.

You get along harmoniously with people who are even-tempered, particularly those who can laugh in the face of difficulties. You are particularly appreciative of talent in any field, whether art, literature or music and if you lack talent yourself you often indulge in artistic hobbies.

Money has a way of slipping through your fingers because it isn’t money you love, it is the things money can buy. Essentially frivolous, people born under this sign dislike hard work-unless someone else is doing it. A love for beauty leads many natives of this sign to careers in art, decorating, the theater, and composing, but the approach often remains that of a dilettante who enjoys the reward but avoids the effort needed to attain it.

You are an incorrigible idealist and quintessential romantic. Affectionate, warmhearted, sentimental, naturally optimistic, you do everything in you power to please. Your stock-in-trade is charm.

Leo July 23 – Aug 22

Leo
July 23 – Aug 22

Quality: Fixed-Leo is enthusiastic, powerful, expansive and creative, generous and extravagant, dogmatic and fixed in opinion.

Ruling Planet: The sun-Center of our solar system, a star that burns with intense fore and supplies us with light, heat and energy. In astrology, the sun is the most powerful planetary influence, bestowing vitality and authority.

Symbol: The Lion-Regal, brave, dominating, sometimes indolent. Possessing nobility and pride.

Dominant Keyword: I will

Polarity or Opposite: Aquarius-Leo is the sign that governs pleasure and creativity. Natives of Leo look for what they can get out of life for themselves and tend to dominate others. Aquarius, Leo’s opposite sign is the sign of hopes and wishes and the higher aspirations of mankind. Aquarian people are concerned with larger ideals, humanitarian concepts and are more impersonal and aloof in their relationships.

Body Parts Ruled by Leo: Back, spine and the heart: Emotional strain and physical overexertion cause back and spine ailments in Leo people.

Lucky Day: Sunday

Lucky Numbers: 8 and 9

Birthstone: Ruby-protects against physical injury and insures faithfulness. It also brings its wearer serenity of mind.

Color: Gold and orange-the magnetic colors of the Sun.

Dangers: Leo people tend to be bombastic and challenging and often knowingly provoke others into impulsive violence. They are also prone toward being victims of slander.

Most Likeable Trait: Exuberance.

Your loyalty is beyond question. You are only devoted to yourself.

All Leo’s possess a kingdom. The kingdom may be big or small, it may be your home, a lover, a piece of creative work or your whole career. But whatever it is you are unquestioningly ruler of this kingdom. Self assurance surrounds Leo people like a ghost image on a TV set. You don’t have to look for a role to play in life. You’ve found it. You are the monarch of all you survey.

When you enter a room you secretly hope everyone will stand up and sing a few stanzas of the Hallelujah Chorus! At a party it isn’t long before you assume control of the evening. Witty, vivacious, a fluent talker, you are a born entertainer who can lend spice to any occasion. People gravitate to you as steel filings to a magnet.

Your Sun sign confers a great flair for drama and an instinct for getting attention. Because your nature is flamboyant and expansive, you despise the humdrum, the ordinary and the dull. When real life does not supply all the excitement you need, you try to create your own. Hyperbole is second nature to you. You are born to do things in a really big way.

If you invite people to your castle (which is how you think of your home), you entertain them royally. You are a splendid party giver.

Others may become reconciled to accepting second best; not Leo’s. Born under the most royal sign of the zodiac, there is absolutely nothing Leo people can think of that’s too good for them. Luxury is a vital to you as breathing. You want to enjoy the good life and never mind what it costs. You are not a good haggler or bargainers because basically you want what you want when you want it.

Your public image is very important to you. When a Leo woman’s checking account is down to two figures somehow she’ll find the means to buy a glorious new dress, and when his credit cards are overdrawn a Leo man will still make reservations at the best restaurant in town. Leos are the most lavish spenders in the zodiac (Librian run a close second).

Generous, kind, and openhearted, you find it hard to believe ill of others. If injured, you strike back quickly, but you also forgive easily and never hold a grudge. Marvelously affectionate and cheerful, you have genuine joie de vivre. The Sun is your ruler, and you always bring some sunshine into the lives of others. Obviously, this is one of your most endearing traits. In many ways you are like the sun itself-life enhancing radiating energy and magnetism, burning with steady fixate. Astrologers call Leos eternal children, for you take pleasure from the moment and are uninhibited in giving affection.

No one could ask for a better friend. If approached in the right way (flattery is the right way), you will do almost anything, but you expect praise and appreciation and admiration in return. Pride is your Achilles heel. Your ego demands not respect but adoration, not compliments but flattery, and when you receive lavish praise you never stop to wonder if it is insincere. Despite your self-centeredness, you need others to give to if only to get back their appreciation. However, because you’re too proud to ask for appreciation, you often suffer silently from a wounded ego.

In business you are the one in command. Another sign that gravitates towards authority is Capricorn, but its natives steadily climb toward a high position. However, you are also a hard worker who doesn’t ask more of more of anyone else than you do of yourself. You won’t quail before a challenge or flinch from a confrontation. You are ambitious, but not ruthless. All you ask is to be in the limelight.

Routine quickly leads to boredom, and makes you desperately unhappy. Your unhappiness doesn’t last long, because you simply won’t put up with it. You have an unshakable belief in your luck and quickly bounce back from despondency.

It is difficult (though not impossible) to dislike a Leo. True you can be bombastic and overbearing at times. True you love to give advice and tell people how to live their lives. Like your symbol, the lion, you can be quite indolent and lazy; you like to sit back and bask in your own glory. But your great warmth and sunny disposition is very hard to resist. The world would be much less fun without Leos.

Gemini May 21 – June 20

Gemini
May 21 – June 20

Quality: Mutable-Gemini is lively, energetic, versatile, and intellectual, lives primarily in the mind rather than the emotions and is extremely adaptable to new situations.

Ruling Planet: Mercury-Ancient messenger of the gods. In astrology, Mercury rules communication and travel. Its influence emphasizes a nervous temperament.

Symbol:The twins-Associated with duality, humanism, versatility and communication.

Dominant Keyword: I think

Polarity or Opposite: Sagittarius-Gemini is the sign of thought and communication on a personal level. Natives of Gemini strive for self-expression and try to impose their views on others. Sagittarius, which is Gemini’s opposite sign, is the sign governing the wider provenance of philosophy and mental exploration. Sagittarian people tend to shrink from close personal involvement and unlike Gemini are shaped by what other others think of them.

Body Parts Ruled by Gemini: Hands, arms, shoulders and lungs. Gemini is susceptible to strains and accidents involving hands and arms; also prone to bronchitis and respiratory ailments.

Lucky Day: Wednesday

Lucky Numbers: 5 and 9

Birthstone: Agate-A multicolored stone that protects from deception, falsehood and bestows eloquence, especially in declarations of love

Color:Yellow-Bright and luminous, the color of novelty.

Dangers: Gemini people are prone to accidents while traveling, especially by air. Their fickle natures tend to arouse anger in others, the depth of which Gemini’s often misjudge.

Most Likeable Trait: Responsiveness

People born under this sign are many sided, quick inaction, clever with words, skillful at handling others and brimful of new ideas.

Astrologers regard this third sign of the zodiac as the quintessentially human sign, for it seems to sum up qualities that are the distinguishing hallmarks of the human race-intelligence, adaptability and communicativeness.

Gemini people do not sit back and watch the scenery goby. As a Gemini you are endlessly curious about everything and must be part of the busy passing scene. If all the world’s a stage, Gemini must be the actor on that stage. Unlike Leo, who wants only to be the star, Gemini wants to play all the parts and be the director, producer and the stagehand!

Duality is your most famous trait. You usually want more than one of everything. That includes jobs, hobbies, careers and lovers. Basically your nature is restless, on the go, in quest of new ideas and fresh experiences. As a result, you often leave a trail of unfinished tasks. Your tendency is to fritter away energy on too many projects instead of concentrating your cleverness on one task.

Gemini is the sign of communication and its natives have an urgent and continual need to communicate. You enjoy writing notes, chatting with strangers and the telephone is a major means of communication. People should learn not to give you their number if they aren’t the kind who like to spend a lot of time on the phone!

Born with the gift of persuasion, you could sell ice in Greenland. Your quick mind can explain any action, defend any position and justify any course. A mental magpie, you pick up information here, gossip there and little tidbits everywhere. This makes you an ideal conversationalist, for you know a little about everything. You also are inclined to have firm opinions on everything (subject to revision at a moment’s notice.)

A Gemini’s weakness is superficiality. Because you are so quick to grasp an idea or size up a situation, you tend to skim its surface, not bothering to explore it in any depth. The other side of the coin however, is that with very little preparation you can make a marvelous initial impression.

Your facile gifts of writing, speaking and self-expression make you a success in dealing with the public. You have a quicksilver personality that can adapt to many kinds of people. You are often drawn to the stage and the dramatic arts.

Amusing, versatile and witty, you are a wonderful friend who lifts people out of their doldrums. It’s easy to see why friends and admirers usually surround you because you’re such fun to be with. True you can be impatient with persons who aren’t as quick as you are, or who can’t keep up with the rapid flow of your thought and speech. However, Your natural exuberance sweeps even the most reluctant and surly along with you. In almost any situation you can be as charming as you want to be-with a little extra thrown in.

“Life is a jest and all things show it; I thought so once and now I know it,” this spells out the philosophy of Gemini. You don’t waste time plumbing dark emotional depths. There is a brooding side to your Jekyll and Hyde disposition, but you don’t let it dominate your light hearted spirits. You’re too interested in fun and games.

Gemini’s have a wide range of contacts and benefit from the advice and help of influential people. You will attract financial luck, but a tendency toward extravagance often more than offsets it. In your ledger, income always adds up to something a little short of outgo.

Routine and monotony are two things you dread and you will go to any lengths to avoid them. Change is your keyword, and what you value most is freedom. It’s useless for anyone to try to pin you down. For you the fun is in traveling, not in arriving at a destination. You love to explore new territory and see the way people live on the other side of the world. Inquisitive and imaginative, you are open to a different way of looking at things. Your trendy, up-to-date lifestyle has you constantly living off the fad of the land.

For the sheer fascination of it, people should have at least one Gemini in their lives. (Two might be exhausting.)
