Astrology For Beginners


astrology for beginners maybe during
your lunch break today you overheard your coworkers sharing their daily
horoscopes with each other maybe your best friend keeps telling you that she’s
such a Libra and you have no idea what that means
but at the same time you’re too afraid to ask whatever the reason you found
yourself in a situation where you’d be interested in learning more about
astrology while we here at bestie already have several videos on the
subject of astrology as well as various zodiac signs it has come to our
attention that none of them are ideally suited as an entry-level introduction
for astrology newbies with that in mind we decided to create this video as a
crash course for beginners to learn more about the history of astrology the
twelve constellations and their associated interpretations now before we
go any further though consider subscribing to besties and ringing the
notification bell to stay up to date on our daily content we talk about
astrology a lot so if you like this video there’s more where that came from
originally conceived as part of the science of astronomy astrology
refers to the pseudo-scientific concept or belief that an individual person’s
most dominant personality traits wants needs and drives are all to some extent
predetermined at their time of birth which can be gleaned by tracking and
studying the movements of celestial bodies in the sky under astrology people
can be sorted into twelve broad personality types determined by twelve
constellations found within different sectors of the night sky referred to as
the signs of the zodiac because of the Earth’s rotation around the Sun
different signs are more visible during different parts of the year an astrology
dictates that the sign you’re born under determines your personality type even
for people who don’t personally believe in astrology or the zodiac many find it
a fun pastime to read up on their particular sign as a hypothetical
concept or thought-provoking what-if scenario
now we’ve got the basic definitions out of the way let’s take a closer look at
the 12 signs of the zodiac what times of the year they fall under and what
personality traits and predictions are most commonly associated with them Aries
Aries is the first of the 12 zodiac signs and represents anyone whose
birthday falls between the dates of March 21st and April 19th the name Aries
comes from the Latin word meaning RAM because of this it will likely come as
no surprise that individuals born under this sign are typically expected to be
bold strong willed and highly competitive Aries is also a sign
commonly associated with those with strong leadership skills but have an
aversion towards unnecessary complication details and nuance as the
first sign of the zodiac Wheel some astrologers interpret Aries as leading
the charge through spontaneity and blind optimism running ahead without taking
the time to pause and reflect on their impulsive actions according to
astrologists this can make Aries beneficial for group morale but also
prone to selfish or short-sighted tendencies the Aries sign is associated
with the planet Mars as well as the classical element of fire Taurus the
second sign in the zodiac cycle is Taurus representing those born between
April 20th and May 20th the name Taurus is Latin for the bull an animal that
prominently appears in a number of different mythological contexts
unlike Aries which is associated with brash impulsiveness astrologers equate
the sign Taurus to calmness and serenity though this can sometimes borderline on
outright Eden ism while this might make it sound like Tauruses are only
associated with pampered lifestyles astrologers also claim that those born
under tourists aren’t afraid to work hard for the things that they want in
life and are likely to have a good sense when it comes to money Taurus is
associated with the planet Venus as well as the classical element of Earth Jim
and I the third constellation in the zodiac is Gemini
is the sign of those born between May 21st and June 20th Jim and I gets its
name from the Latin word twins and fittingly enough is often associated
with workaholics with so much to do that they find themselves wishing they could
be in two places at once astrologers interpret the Gemini sign as being
representative of those with a dualistic nature those who try to sate their
intellectual curiosity through a variety of pursuits and hobbies and those who
are particularly extroverted or outgoing Gemini is associated with the planet
Mercury a trait it shares with Virgo and the classical element of air cancer
number four is cancer representing people with birthdays between June 21st
and July 22nd if that name sounds a little bit morbid you’ll be relieved to
hear that cancer in this context is taken from the Latin word for crab
though their personalities can be described as anything but crabby while
they may wrap themselves in a protective shell not unlike the exoskeletons of
their crustaceous namesakes cancers are in fact highly empathetic and
compassionate individuals who aim to win over people with their unwavering
loyalty and commitment astrologers also characterized cancers as introverts and
homebodies seeking the comfort and security of the familiar and all things
domestic which I guess means you could describe them as hermit crabs cancer is
associated with the moon and the classical element of water leo
those born between the dates of July 23rd and August 22nd can expect to fall
under the constellation of Leo the fifth sign in the zodiac cycle Leo’s name
derives from the Latin word for Lion and as such are believed to possess all the
pomp and vivaciousness that would be befitting of the king of beasts
astrologers interpret Leo’s as natural leaders in supportive friends though
their strong personalities and tendency towards jealous behavior and often
result in a swollen ego in hubristic attitudes leo is represented by the Sun
as well as the classical element of fire virgo virgo is signed number six falling
between august 23rd and september 22nd according to the astrologers virgos are
characterized as being highly detail-oriented often to the extent of
being perfectionists with a preference for logic and practicality when it comes
to everyday life virgos are said to be efficient organizers able to process and
make sense of even the most convoluted information though their meticulousness
hands sometimes borderline on unhealthy obsession with unrealistic standards or
ideals like gemini virgo is represented in our solar system by mercury and is
also associated with the element of earth Libra Libra is the seventh
constellation in the zodiac the sign associated with people born between
September 23rd in October 22nd libras name derived from the Latin word for set
of weighing scales making Libra unique in that it is the only sign named after
an inanimate object rather than an animal or type of person as the name
implies astrologers characterize libras as valuing a sense of balance and
symmetry seeking to fill all aspects of life with a sense of equilibrium and
harmony according to astrologists libras are also classified as intellectuals and
art lovers and they’re often peccable taste makes them ideally suited towards
pursuits such as interior designers or decorators Libra is associated with the
planet Venus alongside Taurus as well as a classical element of air Scorpio
October 23rd to November 21st is the domain of Scorpio the eighth zodiac sign
on the list this might seem a bit obvious but Scorpio comes from the Latin
word scorpion if you thought cancer got a raw
deal by being named after the crab try sharing your name with a desert-dwelling
arachnid known by most for its venomous barbed stinger
however much like the desert scorpion Scorpios are ambush hunters
using subtlety and calculation to determine when is the best time to
strike according to astrologists Scorpios pride
themselves in their ability to think three steps ahead applying careful plans
and long game strategies in order to get what they want they are careful
tactician zin the game of life and always play with their cards close to
their vest Scorpios are associated with everyone’s favorite dwarf planet Pluto
as well as the element of water Sagittarius
Sagittarius is a ninth constellation in the zodiac if you were born between
November 22nd and December 21st this is the sign for you
Sagittarius his name comes from the Latin word Archer and as that name would
imply they would have their sights set on the far horizon astrologers
characterized those born under Sagittarius as Globetrotters and
adventure seekers forever questing for knowledge and to sate their constant
wonder lust in addition Sagittarius is a sign
equated with mutability and flexibility and are believed to value freedom as
well as the capacity for change Sagittarius is represented by the planet
Jupiter and the element of fire capricorn we are nearing the end of the
list now with the tenth sign Capricorn ruling between December 22nd and January
19th Capricorn’s name in Latin translates
roughly to horned goat or goat horn and is symbolized by mythological half goat
half fish entity fittingly known as sea goat astrologers view capricorns as
study and focused individuals hardened at an early age by past hardships and
challenges while this might make them come across as overly stoic individuals
astrologers also claim capricorns can be lively and outgoing under the right
circumstances becoming more outgoing and optimistic as they mature and the weight
of their past difficulties begins to ease up Capricorn is represented by the
planet Saturn and the element of Earth Aquarius
second to last on the list is Aquarius falling on the dates of January 20th to
February 18th despite its name being translated from Latin to mean water
carrier Aquarius is actually represented by the air element an astrologers
characterized those born under this sign as healers and humanitarians Aquarius
born individuals are often also interpreted as rebels and advocates of
social change hoping to make a positive impact on the world through social
progress and by shaking things up in the status quo while big picture thinkers
the lofty ambitions of an Aquarian can often lead them to stretch themselves
too thin neglecting familial and relationship obligations and losing
sight of their immediate surroundings in addition to the classical element of air
Aquarius also carries an association with the planet Uranus Pisces bringing
up the rear on the zodiac list is Pisces the official zodiac sign for anyone born
between February 19th and March 20th Pisces in Latin is the pluralized word
for fish and the constellation is often represented symbolically by two fish
swimming in opposite directions according to astrologists the life of a
Pisces is similarly divided representing a mental tug-of-war between the fantasy
and reality Pisces are believed to be empathetic and compassionate but also
highly emotional and often run the risk of getting carried away when their
feelings get the better of them Pisces is also believed to be mutable and
highly adaptable to their surroundings and possess a high degree of creative
potential Pisces is associated with the planet Neptune and as you might have
