The common characteristics of each sign
Mind you we all are a mixture of our rising and sun sign. The rising/ascendant is how others view us. The following are
basic characterizes for each sign. I am including both the positive and negative aspects. We will be in the negative if we
are living any type or any form of that way. But it does not mean that we have to stay there. Each sign has its ups and
downs. But when we are in that sign or governed somehow in our chart by it should not be a hindrance but a way for
us to go beyond and get over it. Never should any one feel stuck within a sign or aspect in there chart and say ’because
this is there, that is how my life will be’. No it does not, it is your choice to make that pebble in the road a pebble or a
None of this is to offend anyone because we are not totally of one sign but a mixture of many. But it is the sign in a so
called nut shell. In the description I do mention both the positive and negative. You may even find these characteristics
in people that you know. But at least you may have a good laugh. You may have some of these traits or none at all.
Aries works from the mind. They are constant learners. You will find most of your Aries in school learning no matter
what age. If they are not going to school they would be reading as much as they can. They constantly think.
Unfortunately the body part governed by the sign is the mind. When it is affected we will find problems in the mind as
more on a psychological issues or traumas to the brain. Aries will express that they are always right at time and the ’I
am number one’. this is because they are first on the zodiac - but that does not mean they are. They seem to have
problems with finances and family mostly. Which is ironic because that is mostly their desires is the family and
money. You may never win a battle with an Aries because most think they are always right even when they are wrong.

strong. But deep down inside they are gushy with very much emotions. They tend to put this front up to people and
end up having problems because they bottle everything inside. They make excellent business leaders because of this.
They can control the situations with there power they project. But the down fall that can be the flow in their character

personalities. Don’t we all have ‘I, me and myself’ ? They love to talk as their sign is governing communications. They
make wonderful careers in any form of communications like radio, tv, newspaper or journalism. Anything that deals
with communication and expression Gemini is the one to do the job. The hands, arms, shoulders, lungs and nervous
system is governed by this sign. They would be affected by one of these body parts. But mostly affected by needing to
control their multi personalities as this can turn into an illness unless controlled. Gemini’s make wonderful and exciting
