Understanding The Winter 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 Fall's zodiac signs Libra, Scorpio, and Sagittarius.
Capricorn - The Goat
December 22 - January 19
Color: Brown, Grey, Black
Greatest Overall Compatibility: Taurus, Virgo
Best for Marriage and Partnerships: Cancer
Lucky Numbers: 1, 4, 8, 10, 13, 17, 19, 22, 26
Organized and intelligent, those born under this sign tend to be high achievers. Considered to be the most serious of all of the zodiac signs, Capricorns are planners and leaders. They are always pursuing their next dream and their active minds produce new ideas constantly. Sympathetic and caring, a Capricorn friend will always have your back.
Their self-discipline can come off to others as coldness. Capricorns crave structure and may be overly assertive in forcing their structure on others. They see things as only black and white, with no room for gray areas. This can lead them to be stubborn and unwilling to compromise.
A deep thinker, your Capricorn woman is not one to rush into love. She needs to be romanced and courted and will not easily share her thoughts with you. She is loyal by nature and likes to take the lead in her relationships. Be patient with her, as she is worth the wait.
Your Capricorn man is down-to-earth and practical. He may not consider love as a high priority, but when he finds it, he will nurture it. He demands monogamy and has no tolerance for lies and games. Gold-diggers and lazy women are huge turn-offs for the Capricorn man.
Aquarius - The Water Bearer
January 20 – February 18
Color: Blue, Grey, Black
Day: Saturday, Sunday
Greatest Overall Compatibility: Libra, Gemini
Best for Marriage and Partnerships: Leo
Lucky Numbers: 4, 8, 13, 17, 22, 26
The humanitarians of the zodiac, Aquarian’s are deeply passionate about their causes. They dance to the beat of their own drummer and will not be tied down by traditional constraints. Constantly in search of a deeper wisdom, Aquarian’s are driven by their intellect, not their emotions. They make unconventional and spontaneous friends who are loyal to the end.
Rebellious to a fault, an Aquarian will buck the system just because they can. Boredom is a no-no for the Aquarian. They crave stimulation and can be reckless, as a result. Aquarian’s look for the shock value in any situation, which can be off-putting to those who do not know them well.
Aquarian women are independent to a fault. They refuse to be bound by the rules of traditional relationships, preferring to move from one lover to the next. Always afraid of losing her identity, your Aquarian partner will keep you at an arm’s length. Give her space and she will give you her heart, if the mood strikes her.
Intellectual stimulation is the key to winning an Aquarian man’s affection. He is an excellent communicator who is looking for someone to share his inner-most thoughts with. He may seem unemotional, but that is simply because he is wrapped up in the many things swirling around his head. Become his friend first and you will earn his trust, respect and love.
Pisces - The Fish
