Astrology in the West Beginning with Aries, a fire sign, the next sign in sequence is Taurus, which is Earth, followed by Gemini, which is air, and lastly Cancer, which is water. All Earth signs are known for their strong physical presence while all Air signs are seen as intellectual beings.
Gemini is considered to be a mutable sign, which means that it can change form or appearance. Its traditional astrological symbols are the twins, sharing one body. Sometimes called the "talking" zodiacal sign, because both parts of the personality are expressed simultaneously by each twin. The dual nature of Gemini is shown in the fact that it is associated with speech instead of thought as a Moon sign is, but also with dreams and imagination as a Sun sign is. It is the only double-planet sign and the only sign that contains both a moon and a sun.
Gemini is particularly famous as the sign of communication. The Twins were said to have given their name to the constellation where they were depicted as two stars facing each other (although this is now known to be incorrect). They were often represented as twins because they were born at almost exactly the same time around April 15th, and they grew up together without ever having a single moment of solitude.
Beginning with Aries, a fire sign, the next sign in sequence is Taurus, which is Earth, followed by Gemini, which is air, and lastly Cancer, which is water. Fire: 1 Aries, 5 Leo, and 9 Sagittarius; fiery, dry, and ardent. Earth—-2 Taurus, 6 Virgo, and 10 Capricorn—heavy, chilly, and dry. Water—-4 Cancer, 7 Scorpio, and 11 Pisces—fluid, emotional, and sentimental.
As a fire sign, you are known for your passion and enthusiasm, which can come across as being aggressive or bold at times. You also have a strong will and believe that you should never be forced to do anything against your morals or beliefs. You are independent and don't like being controlled, which may cause problems for anyone who tries to tell you what to do. Finally, you are very much into new experiences and like to take risks. Will this relationship work? Only time will tell.

Water signs are frequently compatible with earth signs such as Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. Because water naturally nurtures the ground, this makes perfect sense. When severe circumstances are at hand, earth signs help keep water signs balanced and anchored in reality. For example, a Taurus person can be very nurturing and responsible when it comes to money matters but may become impatient when trying to understand someone who is more emotional than rational.
Earth signs are commonly dominant in people who work with their hands or feel the need to be involved in physical activities to clear their minds. They like having some kind of direction in life and tend to do better when they know exactly what is expected of them. However, these individuals may sometimes be thoughtless about others' feelings. Sometimes they even come across as cold-hearted.
When earth signs meet air signs, they make excellent partners. Both parties are flexible and understanding, which helps avoid conflict with each other. Since air signs crave new experiences, this combination allows both persons to grow individually while still enjoying each other's company. For example, an adventurous Leo person might want to take Taurus person on a trip in order to show them what true love is, but only if they're willing to try new things.
Leo people have a reputation for being exciting and passionate, while Taurus people are known for being stable and reliable.
They can also be used to compliment fire and earth signs. If they happen to be Libra, they will gravitate toward the air and fire sign associations (Aquarius, Gemini, Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius). If they are born under the sign of Scorpio, they will like water and earth connections (Cancer, Pisces, Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo).
The following combinations are popular among astrologers and astronomers: Scorpio-Sagittarius, Scorpio-Capricorn, Libra-Scorpio, and Aquarius-Scorpio.
Scorpios are known for their intense passions that lead to great achievements. They are ambitious, determined, loyal, honest, and hardworking. When combined with Scorpions, these traits are intensified. Both signs like to be in control so this combination makes for strong partnerships. Scorpios are often drawn to Aquarians because of their independent minds and the excitement that both signs bring to relationships. While most Scorpios are secretive by nature, an Aquarian can see right through them. These pairs have a lot to offer each other and are perfect for long-term commitments.
When two Scorpios are paired up with another couple's scorpion, there is a chance that they will conflict because they want different things from a relationship. Each Scorpio wants to be chosen first; otherwise, they feel inadequate. This combination needs clear communication between partners if there is to be no drama between them. Otherwise, they might end up hating each other.
The yearly passage of the sun across our sky defines it. The Zodiac, or the 12 signs of the zodiac stated in a horoscope, is intimately related to how the Earth travels through the skies. The signs are drawn from the constellations that outline the journey the sun seems to take over the course of a year.
There are also theories about what might have caused the zodiac to emerge. Some say it was based on observations made by ancient Babylonians, but most modern scholars believe it originated with Greek and Roman astronomers. The original zodiac was probably based on constellations that were visible from Greece; today these same constellations can be seen from anywhere on Earth because we live at a time when the earth is in its winter orbit around the sun. But since the ancients didn't know this, they would have had to base their descriptions on data available to them at the time.
Astrologers use the term "zodiac sign" to describe each of the 12 parts into which the sky is divided by constellation. Although there are stars within each constellation, they don't always form a clear pattern. For example, there are four constellations made up entirely of single stars: Orion, Pegasus, Centaurus, and Vela. But only two of these constellations (Orion and Pegasus) appear in the zodiac. This is why some people claim that your zodiac sign influences what part of the body houses certain planets. In reality, it's just a coincidence.
