Your soul’s purpose is to communicate. The zodiac’s eloquent messenger. You are interested in everything. Agile, flexible, adaptable. Your dual nature only expands your repertoire, giving you the ability to explore many realms at once.
You have a tendency to over commit, believing boredom is a fate worse than death. In your determination to be busy you can scatter yourself hither and yon. Choosing fewer pursuits with discipline and focus will see you realise your greatest desires, instead of witnessing merely the beginning of a million dreams.
Ruled by Mercury you possess it’s nervous energy. The air is electric around you. Bright, friendly and sparkling with curiosity. Crackling with quick movements and changeable tendencies; it’s a volatility that will carry you through almost anything.

Shy, protective and sentimental. A gentle soul. Your hard outer shell endures, safeguarding the softness of your heart. You live in a world guided by your senses. Led by your intuition and your ability to feel. You are the romantic.
Loyal and loving, you are the nurturer of the zodiac. Deeply sympathetic and kind to those in need. Ruled by the Moon, the planet of sensation, you are heavily influenced by emotion. Your softer side becomes you.
You are the most sensory and reflective of beings. Nostalgia belongs to Cancer. You have an incredible talent for recollection, and with such a powerful memory and such a vivid imagination, you have the ability to recreate any scenario from the past and feel it again in full force.
There is a vulnerability in this. A fragility that craves the protection and comfort of home. You covet this place, or person, you call your own, gathering within it the things that mean the most to you. Mementos evoking sensation become your collection of calm and reassurance. This arrangement affords you a sense of security; a shelter from the storm.

Ruler - Mercury | Element - Earth | Quality - Mutable
You are delicate. Intelligent and poised. You are defined by your contribution, by your acts of service. Efficient, accurate, considered. Light, beautiful, impossible and unattainable.
Personified by the virgin goddess of agriculture your fixed, earthy nature likes to have its feet firmly planted on the ground. You like life to go as expected, or rather, as you have planned. You respect methodology and hard work. Recognising that consistency and diligence are the keys to success.
Your practical nature and intelligent mind can make relationships difficult to navigate. You don’t register emotion on a primal level as others do, you are governed by the mind. Rational. Intolerant of messy, unpredictable affairs. Instead, you crave romance as an ideal in its purest form. There is a difficult polarity in this; your level head in impasse with your idealistic heart. Practicality pushes, while romanticism pulls and the outcome is often to abstain entirely, hence the virginal connotations. Love will always be a challenge for the perfectionist.
You are ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication. However, its influence is internal. You channel information like no other, with discreet selectivity.
Meticulous. You are the aficionado of process with an incredible gift of bringing order out of chaos, illustrating the beauty and perfection you so desire. You live in a material world.
In your quest for idealism you can be critical of yourself and others. Constant judgement can be both exhaustive and destructive. You are prone to worry and dissatisfaction as your expectations are always high.
Your soul’s purpose is to help; to assist on a practical level. You are a kind, committed supporter who draws on your clever resourcefulness to solve the problems of those around you. You smooth the edges of the mess which is life.
Ruler - Venus | Element - Air | Quality - Cardinal

The mediator, delicate in your tact and diplomacy, you brighten the attitudes and solve the problems you encounter. Adept at weighing up the options and considering both sides; you offer guidance in a way that is innately selfless.
This need for calm extends to aesthetic refinement, as inspired by your ruler Venus. You are unwavering in your desire for perfection. Detailed you curate, straighten and smooth your environment to achieve the order you so crave.
You are epitomised by your quest for balance. Pendulous between two poles you are accustomed to the ups and downs. You have created your own sense of equilibrium, comfortably in between and mindfully removed from each extreme. Beautifully detached, you are content to dip your toes in the highs and lows rather than becoming completely absorbed or affected. It is not naive, but rather evolved. Wisely within this place of contentment you ground your existence.

Ruler - Pluto & Mars | Element - Water | Quality - Fixed
As enigmatic as the ocean. Magnetic in your tidal pull. Calm to the surface while complexity reigns beneath. Depth, danger and complexity. Electric and transformative, you are the perfect storm.
Coveted emotions. You feel so strongly yet express so rarely. Constrained by a well-controlled nature. A friendly, open approach is your pretence for privacy. You invest so much in others yet reveal so little of yourself. Still, as reserved as you may try to be, your intensity cannot be ignored.
You sparkle with hypnotic magnetism; a transfixing force iconic to Scorpio. A dangerous allure, energetically polarising; you attract yet repel. Protective of the inner workings of your psyche. Mystery illuminated by fire; desire. It’s this air of ambiguity that makes you so seductive.
Ruled by both Pluto and Mars your energy is transformation, destruction and force. Patient to a point. The provocateur quickly becomes the victim. The sting of the Scorpion may be unspoken, but it is surely felt. A dark cloud descends. Amorphous, unbridled; a deluge.

Aspiring to contribute your energy to a collective cause will bring you more meaning than going it alone. You are innately protective of others, profoundly paternal and completely loyal in love.
Passionate, powerful, volatile, creative and mesmerising. In a word; addictive.
Ruler - Saturn | Element - Earth | Quality - Cardinal
You have incredible tenacity. Focused and methodical; the cultivator. Master of your own inner fortitude. Patient and enduring.
You possess a no-nonsense approach to life. Pragmatic and morally righteous your spectrum of view is black or white. You preferring not to play in shades of grey, yet contrast becomes you.
Your Saturnian structure is ever present, though you are comfortable in rebellion. You have a deeply serious side, yet you douse it in a mischievous sense of humour. In one realm you may feel complete confidence, while in another you may feel strangely out of your depth. This contrasting self-belief creates an inner tension. A frustration; you aim to be good at everything. Success and achievement define you. There is an almost bristling determination to your energy; a productivity that has little patience for mediocrity. Your nature is one capable of moving mountains. Yet, in this pursuit of excellence, you tend to underestimate your own achievements.
The road to progress leaves little space for reflection. You have difficultly accepting compliments and rarely acknowledge you own success. You are the undisputed taskmaster of the zodiac. However, all work and no play makes for a monotonous existence. Stopping to smell the roses gives you the much needed perspective to appreciate your efforts.
You don’t often pay attention to your emotions, being so occupied in other areas. You see things differently. Grounded in your focus and structured in your method. Emotions aren’t planned, measured or controllable, hence they are not your native language. Your values however, speak volumes to the strength of your character.
You’re a slow burn, but your fire lasts a lifetime.
Ruler - Jupiter | Element - Fire | Quality - Mutable
Fresh and unaffected. You experience life - as the adventure you make it - for the first time. With a contagious energy of spontaneity, bravery and naiveté you are wide open, seeing only possibilities in front of you. This bright-eyed buoyancy never fades. Childlike in your wonder for today and anticipation for tomorrow.
Lively and fun-loving, you are a curious creature. You seek knowledge and adventure to expand your mind. A restless spirit and a mutable sign, you yearn for change and new experiences. You long for freedom and independence and must have space to roam.
Honest, almost to a fault. There is a sincerity and transparency about you. You always have the best of intentions.
Jupiter, your ruling planet, has gifted you with faith, optimism and positivity. Fueled by your fiery nature, you project this energy outward. In the realm of hope you are extremely expansive. Leaning into this you have the ability to affect great change for humanity.
You refuse to accept the seriousness of life. As a jovial Jupiter soul, you find bureaucracy and constraints suffocating. Too much responsibility weighs you down. You are happiest when you are afforded the freedom you so crave.
Powered by mental brilliance, the archer shoots for the stars. Bored by life’s limitations your heartfelt desires lie within another realm. With sparkling intellect, blind optimism and fiery drive, no dream is too big to turn into a reality.
Ruler - Uranus | Element - Air | Quality - Fixed
Light with possibilities, bright with intelligence and wholly unique. Cool and aloof.
Interested, opinionated and wonderful. A friend to everyone. Charismatic and eccentric, you possess a relaxed, self-assurance that others are drawn to. A non-conformist at heart, you delight in rocking convention and in your refusal to conform; you are unapologetically yourself.
Generally a tranquil and gentle soul, you are motivated by helping others, not through service or small gestures but rather sweeping, violent change. You possess an intelligence unlike any other; analytical and objective. There is a sharpness to your perception that sees through a different lens. You think bigger than others can perceive.
You know your own mind and won’t have it altered by anyone. Fixed in nature, you are determined in your ideas and dedicated in your beliefs. You innately seek the truth.
Ruled by Uranus, the planet of surprise, innovation and technology. With your occasional erraticism and unpredictability, you are a mirror of its influence. This inclination rejects the archaic in favour of the new. Innovation is the product of research and continuous experimentation. Alert and inquisitive, you are driven by what is yet to be discovered. Attuned to higher spheres of thought.
You have so much to offer the world; light, kindness, intelligence and hope. Yet surrounded by the energy of others leaves you craving space; time alone to mediate on new ideas. The rebel must also be the recluse. It has been said that ‘to stifle an Aquarian is to pin down a butterfly’. So beautiful and fragile, restraining such a creature would destroy it, denying the world the vibrancy of its presence.
Freedom-loving Aquarians are happiest when living their independence.
Ruler - Neptune | Element - Water | Quality - Mutable
Shimmering with wonder at the world. Charming and cheerful. The idealist, born to see the world through rose coloured glasses. Hazy and hopeful, you are the dreamer. Creative, esoteric, intuitive. Feeling your way through life.
In constant search for inspiration, your world has a filter of subtlety. Ultra-sensitive and somewhat resistant to reality, you create a calm space for yourself removed from the ills of the outside world. You imagine a gentler existence, where everyone is kind and all actions are beautiful.
As the twelfth and final sign of the zodiac, you are all-knowing. A distillation of all the signs that preceded you, you hold a wealth of wisdom and cosmic experience. You are hyper-aware of your surroundings, almost anxious in your observation.
A kindness exists in you. An inexhaustible love for every living creature. Sensitive. A deep desire to protect the vulnerable. So compassionate that you absorb the stresses and struggles of others as if they were your own. So pained by the pain of others, that you are often suffering second-hand. Be wary of this tendency as the compounded emotions of others will leave you too depleted to deal with your own.
You are represented by two fish swimming in opposite directions. A metaphor for the ultimate choice faced by your impressionable nature; to swim upwards towards light and expansion or to sink deeper in search of escapism.
Optimism is the greater challenge. It does not come easy to the deep feeling Pisces with your emotional spectrum so vast. You tend to take on the weight of the world.
Remember, you are just as affected by positivity as you are by pain. It’s a question of outlook; the choice is entirely yours. You possess incredible brightness, brilliance and influence when you consciously commit to happiness.
