I thought about it last night and that was my question, can our astrological sign determine how we’ll age? Just for fun I thought I would do some research on this since our horoscope can tell us what characteristics we have maybe they can tell us how well you’ll age based on your sun sign.
What Is Your Zodiac/Sun Sign
Well I’m sure most of you know what your sign is, and what an astrological sign is, but for some of you who aren’t sure, let me explain. Your zodiac ( sun sign, astrological sign ) is one of the 12 astrological signs each named after a constellation and were created by dividing the elliptic into 12 equal parts. The elliptic is the orbit of the sun over a span of a year. The date you were born coincides with one of these sun signs. Here’s the breakdown of zodiac signs in order:
- Aries – March 21 – April 19
- Taurus – April 20 – May 20
- Gemini – May 21 – June 20
- Cancer – June 21 – July 22
- Leo – July 23 – August 22
- Virgo – August 23 – September 22
- Libra – September 23 – October 22
- Scorpio – October 23 – November 21
- Sagittarius – November 22 – December 21
- Capricorn – December 22 – January 19
- Aquarius – January 20 – February 18
- Pisces – February 19 – March 20
Each sun sign has different meanings and is directly connected to its own planet, archetype, element, season and more all influencing the traits and emotions of a particular sign. Understanding the traits of your own sign can help you gain personal perspective and growth in your life. Each sign is connected to the four elements, water, fire, air, and earth.
Taurus, Capricorn and Virgo. Zodiac signs that connect to the earth elements are said to possess a wide variety of strengths stability, noble, and full of life. Those connected to this element are hard-working, consistent, nurturing and reliable and this group exudes empathy.
Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. Zodiac signs that connect to the air elements are said to be very intellectual beings as well as flexible and care free. They pride themselves on being independent and they’re charming, witty, and exude beauty. They’re very charismatic and do not hold grudges.
Pisces, Scorpio, and Cancer. Zodiac signs that connect to water elements are the most understanding of the elements. They’re devoted, forgiving, and trusting and are the best at hiding their true feelings. They dislike conflict and try to avoid it at all costs. They can be known to be a bit unstable and irrational and so breaking that calm demeanor doesn’t lead to anything positive. Where fire personalities can be natural-born leaders, the water personalities can be natural-born sheep.
Leo, Sagittarius, and Aries. Zodiac signs that connect to fire elements are known to light up any room they walk into and are natural-born leaders and are very daring and risky. They are focused and decisive as well as intelligent and charismatic. Their jealous and obsessive nature is contradicted by their inability to remain faithful. All in all, those belonging to this personality group are as hot-headed as the element itself.

This was a fun post to write, and I can tell you I’m a Libra and mine was spot on! Did you know they have added a new zodiac sign recently? Now we have 13, which goes by Ophiuchus in sidereal astrology. Sidereal astrology is based on constellations rather than traditional astrology which is based on seasons. It has been said that Babylonians intentionally left out the 13th sign in order to make a match with their 12 month calendar 12 signs/12 months. Just thought this was interesting. Thanks for reading! Does your sign match up with the description? Let me know down in the comments!
