Understanding The Summer Zodiac Signs
Coming from the ancient Greek words Zodiakos Kyklos, the zodiac refers to the ‘circle of the animals.’ The twelve sun signs of the zodiac are broken down into month long periods of time. Each zodiac sign has specific personality traits, strengths, weaknesses, and other qualities unique to that particular sign. In this week's blog post, we will cover the qualities and attributes of the Summers's zodiac signs Cancer, Leo, and Virgo.
Cancer - The Crab
June 21 – July 22
Color: Orange, White
Day: Monday, Thursday
Greatest Overall Compatibility: Scorpio, Pisces
Best for Marriage and Partnerships: Capricorn
Lucky Numbers: 2, 7, 11, 16, 20, 25
Complex, unpredictable and full of contradictions, the Cancer in your life may be difficult to get to know. On one hand they crave attention and make devoted friends, but on the other hand they tend to be introverted homebodies. The nurturer of the zodiac, Cancers are deeply connected to and protective of their families. They are very sensitive and emotional and deeply empathize with those close to them. Intuitive and intelligent, most of the world’s psychics fall under the astrological sign of Cancer.
Cancers can be cranky. They require constant reinforcement that they are wanted and needed. A Cancer tends to keep their feelings close to their chests and it may be difficult to forge a deep connection with one as a result. Their internal struggles make them prone to intense mood swings and temper tantrums.
Deeply emotional and cautious, a Cancer woman will never make the first move in a romantic relationship. She craves tenderness and security. Her intuitive nature will allow her to see right through any lies you may tell her. And if you betray her trust, you will never win it back. Treat your Cancer woman with sensuality and patience and she will be your loyal partner for life.
Guarded and slow to commit, Cancer men are scared of
rejection. They may flirt and court you, but when it is time to settle down,
their insecurities may get in their way. The most loyal of all of the zodiac
signs, your Cancer man will cherish you completely and wholly. Quick to become
jealous, never tease or mock a Cancer.
Leo - The Lion
July 23 – August 22
Color: Gold, Orange, White, Red
Greatest Overall Compatibility: Aries, Sagittarius
Best for Marriage and Partnerships: Aquarius
Lucky Numbers: 1, 4, 10, 13, 19, 22
The lion is the perfect symbol for this headstrong and aggressive zodiac sign. Ambitious and persistent, a Leo knows how to get things done. Their magnetic personalities make them difficult to resist. They are born leaders and crave the spotlight. Leo’s are extremely likeable and make excellent business owners. Driven to succeed, a Leo knows how to work in a group setting and appease everyone, all the while quietly controlling the entire interaction.
Leo’s have a tendency to anger quickly. They can be dramatic and prideful. Deeply sensitive, a Leo thrives on endless positive reinforcement. Their territorial nature leads them to be spoiled and stubborn. If you challenge a Leo, prepare to lose.
Flattery will get you very far with your Leo lady. Don’t ever linger on the looks of a passing woman if you want to keep your Leo partner happy. She needs to know that she is the center of your world and that you have eyes for no one but her. Her charisma makes men flock to her, so you must be willing to compete with other suitors for your Leo’s hand.
A Leo man is quick to fall in love and even quicker to fall out of it. His egotistical façade can be difficult to crack. He needs a strong and grounded woman to break through his cocky shell and connect with his sensitive side. Overlook his faults and stroke his ego and your Leo man will be yours.
Virgo - The Virgin
August 23 – September 22
Color: White, Yellow, Beige, Forest Green
Greatest Overall Compatibility: Taurus, Capricorn
Best for Marriage and Partnerships: Pisces
Lucky Numbers: 5, 14, 23, 32, 41, 50
Creativity and intelligence mark the personalities of the Virgo. Their methodical and inquisitive tendencies make them natural investigators, journalists and researchers. They are known to analyze all aspects of a dilemma before forming any conclusions. Virgo’s are extremely intellectual and may come off as cold or unfeeling as a result. Constantly trying to better themselves, a Virgo may be run ragged on the quest for perfection.
Virgo’s spend so much time keeping their minds organized that their surroundings tend to be quite disorganized. They crave acceptance and approval from others, but will never directly ask for it. Quiet and somewhat introverted, one of the most difficult tasks for a Virgo is to not take things so personally.
Afraid of getting hurt, a Virgo woman will play hard to get. Her insecurity may present as aloofness, but that is not usually the case. Underneath her reserved surface lies a passionate lover capable of deep emotional connection. Loyal and devoted, your Virgo companion will go to great lengths to make her man happy.
Virgo men are deeply respectful of women. They are fans of thoughtful conversations. While not an overly romantic type, Virgo’s crave traditional, stable relationships. They have difficulty expressing their emotions, but do not take their silence for disinterest. Stay patient and your Virgo man will eventually share his feelings with you.
