The Personalities of Astrology Signs

The various personalities of astrology signs provide a fascinating look into the inner workings of the people in your life. In fact, understanding the astrology sign meanings will, undoubtedly, help you to understand them by providing some powerful insights.

Each of the 12 signs of the zodiac has a different perspective on life and generally has very different priorities in life as well. They say that variety is the spice of life and that is certainly the case amongst the astrology birth signs!

Please keep in mind that these are just brief sketches of the 12 personalities of the astrology signs. They are based upon the astrology birth sign that an individual’s Sun was in on the day of birth. Real life astrology takes much more into consideration of the sun-sign. The Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto are also residing in astrological signs at the time of birth and are most likely in different signs as well.

This is why it’s very important to understand the basic motivating principles of each of the astrology birth signs summarized below where the strengths and weaknesses of each sign will be touched upon.

Special Note: It is important to know that if someone’s birthday is around the 20th of the month, that person was born on one of the astrology cusps. This means that the person would take on characteristics of the surrounding sign closest to that date.

Personalities of Astrology SignsGemini Personality Traits

However, they do tend to scatter their energies too much and if they don't learn to focus better and their knowledge of certain subjects might not be very deep at all. Once they do focus, though, they make excellent students due to their enthusiasm for learning. This can definitely make them very solid teachers in the future if they learn to apply themselves.
