Zodiac Plant And Flower Birthstone
The zodiac plant and flower birthstones are very popular among astrologers. They have been used since ancient times. According to some sources, the zodiac sign was originally created from the four elements (air, fire, water and earth). Since then it has become a symbol of life force or energy.
The zodiac sign represents one’s personality traits such as creativity, ambition, loyalty and imagination. The zodiac sign is also considered to represent one’s past life experiences. For example, Cancer represents courage and strength while Capricorn represents wisdom and understanding.
Some astrological experts believe that the zodiac sign is not fixed but rather depends on the individual. Therefore, it does not necessarily mean anything about their future life path. Some astrologers think that there are other factors involved in determining the zodiac sign besides just your birth date and time of birth. These factors include your personality traits, life experience, and even the position of the sun at any given moment.
Zodiac Sign Birthstone – What Does It Mean?
According to many astrologers, the zodiac sign is determined by how much energy one puts into their birth day. If someone lives their whole life according to what they want to do on that particular day, then they will probably end up with a Cancer zodiac sign. On the other hand, if someone lives their whole life believing that they are basically a loser, then the astrological signs predict a Capricorn zodiac sign. It is also believed that the zodiac sign that you are born under will have a large impact on your personality, even if you are not aware of it.
Zodiac signs are also divided into two different branches, the Earthly Branches, and the Airy Signs. The Earthly or Physical Zodiac signs are: Virgo, Taurus, Leo and Capricorn. These signs are more practical and focused on the physical world around them. The Airy or Mental Zodiac signs are: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius and Sagittarius.
These signs are more imaginative and focused on matters of the mind.
Zodiac Signs and Birthdays – What’s the Connection?
Every zodiac sign is also aligned to a specific day of the year. Since all days of the year are not equal (some are longer than others) so too are the alignments not equal. The shortest day of the year is December 21 and it is aligned to Capricorn. The next shortest day is December 22 and it is aligned to Sagittarius. The next day, December 23 is aligned to the day of the winter solstice which is by far the longest day of the year. December 24 is aligned to the day of the Winter Solstice in the year before (the one just past) and December 25 is aligned to the day of the winter solstice in the year after (the one that has not come yet).
There are also two different branches of Earthly signs. The Fire Signs are Aries, Leo and Sagittarius. These signs are more impulsive and quick to act. The Earth Signs are Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.
These signs are more practical and down to earth.
There are also two branches of Airy signs. The Mutable signs are Gemini, Virgo and Aquarius. These signs are changeable and adaptable to new situations. The Cardinal signs are Aries, Cancer and Libra.
These signs tend to lead towards new ventures and initiate action.
You may find some of your characteristics more aligned with one sign over another. For instance, according to Western Astrology, Eights are seen as leaders, strong-willed and usually successful in life. If you were born on August 8, that would make you an Eight with Cancer as your Airy Sign. You may have noticed that Eights have a reputation for being stubborn, so much so that they are sometimes considered to walk their own path, rather than follow the crowd.
If you were born on August 8 but you feel that your life has been more focused on following the crowd and not initiating new ideas or projects, then perhaps you may want to research whether you are actually a different zodiac sign.
The Zodiac signs are just one of many factors that play a role in your personality. The time and place of birth also play a role. Your personality can also change over time as you grow older and encounter different opportunities or set-backs in life. This is just to get you started though, so have fun with it and if anything is unclear, please feel free to contact us!
