    WHAT ARE THE FOUR CARDINAL SIGNS OF THE ZODIAC?

    In astrology, star signs are considered either fixed, mutable or cardinal. The four cardinal signs are Capricorn, Libra, Cancer and Aries — but what does this mean?

    The cardinal signs fall at the beginning of a new season: Capricorn opens winter, Aries kicks off spring, Cancer welcomes in summer, and Libra heralds the beginning of autumn.

    It’s not just about placement in the year, either, because being a cardinal sign can have an effect on the personality.

    Cardinal signs love to be the first at things. They can make good leaders and innovators because they aren’t waiting for someone else to make the first move.

    They tend to be great at coming up with new ideas and they’re often the first person to take action.

    The immensely talented Alicia Keys is the epitome of Aquarian creativity.

    Her moon is in the sign of Libra, meaning that she will always strive to keep her emotions well-balanced.

    Yoko Ono

    Endlessly creative Ono has her Sun, Venus, and Saturn all in the eccentric sign of Aquarius.

    Her husband John Lennon was a Libra but his Moon was in Aquarius, which could explain the deep emotional connection they had.

    Shakira

    This world-famous singer is also partnered with Aquarian footballer Gerard Piqué.

    The couple has been together for over 10 years, proving that it’s not just opposites that attract.

      IS ASTROLOGY SELF-CARE?

      Many of us already read our horoscope for predictions and general advice — but can astrology also be used as a self-care tool?

      According to an article in Vogue, astrology is beginning to occupy a self-care space with countless people turning to the stars for wellness and self-development tips.

      There also seems to be a growing connection between astrology and psychology as people are using their star sign to understand themselves more deeply.

      Like other self-care practices (such as meditation and yoga), astrology can help us to make peace with who we are as well as plan for the future.

      WHAT’S THE MOST HONEST ZODIAC SIGN?

      MOON MOOD

      Your moon sign represents your emotions and mood – good or bad.

      This is especially true for women, according to Lunarium, since the Moon in astrology is the patroness of women.

      According to starslikeyou.com: “In many ways, your moon sign will describe what you do naturally, and your sun sign will point to what you will develop, as well as who you must become.”

      It’s basically the sign that gets you all up in your feelings, regardless of how strong your sun or rising sign might be.

      Your moon sign is determined by calculating your full date, place and time of birth and finding your position around the moon.

      It moves quickly around the zodiac, visiting each sign for around two to two and a half days.

      Your moon sign is likely to be different from your sun sign – i.e. you might be a Taurus, but your lunar sign might be in Sagittarius.

      We’ve found out our sun, moon and rising signs and were surprised by the results.

      If you’ve ever wondered why people make a similar first impression of you or you have a non-Taurus/Aries-like emotional soft centre, find out your rising and moon signs.

      It might give you a bit more guidance on how to navigate life using your trusty cosmic compass.

      WHEN IS NEPTUNE IN RETROGRADE IN 2021 AND WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR YOUR STAR SIGN?  

      Neptune retrograde began on June 25 and it won’t go direct again until December 2. That means you will have plenty of time to adjust to these powerful energies.

      The planet Neptune is connected to dreams, aspirations, imagination and spiritual matters. While this planet is in retrograde, you may find yourself looking for the deeper meaning in things as well as questioning old ideas and beliefs.

      Aries

      Use this time wisely. Neptune retrograde will inspire deep creativity: perhaps not the lightning flash of insight you want, but subtle realisations that will affect how you approach your projects and your life in general.

      Taurus

      You will be taking a close look at your priorities and deciding where you want to invest your energy for the future. Your intuition will be even more powerful than usual, so allow it to guide you.

      Gemini

      In a lot of ways, this Neptune retrograde will bring you the opportunity you’ve been waiting for to deepen your connection with yourself. Keep a journal near your bed to write down the important messages you receive in your dreams.

      Cancer

      You will feel the urge to withdraw more than usual and reflect deeply on things. Go easy on yourself during Neptune retrograde, and don’t feel you have to push yourself. You’ll come out of your shell when you’re ready.

      Leo

      This Neptune retrograde, try to focus on smaller-scale goals. You may experience a frustrating lack of momentum in certain areas, but rest assured that you won’t be slowed down for long!

      Virgo 

      During this time, you will find your imagination reaching exciting new heights. Ideas and inspiration will strike and prompt you to see things in a new way. 

      Libra

      You will find this Neptune retrograde a fruitful time for love and romance. Let your heart guide you, but also remember not to put unrealistic expectations on anyone else. 

      Scorpio

      This Neptune retrograde is an ideal period for taking stock. It’s probably time to let something go, and the contemplative energies of this time are going to help you realise what you need to leave behind.

      Sagittarius

      Making important decisions will come more easily to you this Neptune retrograde. You will have a clearer idea of your goals and values, and you will make choices accordingly and with confidence. It’s a good time to tackle anything you have been putting off.

      Capricorn

      Things are progressing slowly and steadily for you. This is a good time to pay special attention to communication with others. If you choose your words carefully, you will be able to get other people on your side.

      Aquarius

      Moods may be in flux. Highs will feel higher, and lows might be more challenging than usual, but you will get through this time with your powers of flexibility and creative thinking.

      Pisces

      This Neptune retrograde will probably leave you feeling a bit emotionally sensitive. It’s okay to back off when things feel too much. During this period, it’s a good idea to prioritise self-care.

      FIRE SIGNS IN ASTROLOGY

      Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are all fire signs.

      People born under these zodiacs tend to be impulsive, passionate and spontaneous.

      Fire signs are charming and charismatic while also creative and confident. It’s little wonder that these signs are often drawn into the entertainment industry to satisfy their craving for adoration.

      Fire signs unquestionably need to be the centre of attention and will love you for your compliments even when they’re only wearing “this old thing”. Yeah right, Leo.

      They can sometimes have a quick temper though so if you happen to be a Fire sign try channeling all that passionate energy into something worthwhile rather than turning into Bridezilla. You know who you are.

      ARE ‘ANGEL NUMBERS’ MORE THAN JUST A COINCIDENCE?

      Some writers say that 11.11 indicates the presence of the spirit. For some, seeing 11:11 is an auspicious sign and the numbers have magical powers themselves.

      Likewise, the number 333 has some different interpretations but it is also broadly thought to be a message from a guardian angel to tell you to keep going down the path you are.

      It is thought to offer comfort, inner-strength and encouragement.

      WHAT IS IN STORE FOR KIM KARDASHIAN ACCORDING TO HER HOROSCOPE?

      Kim’s star sign is Libra, which means her strengths include fair-mindedness and diplomacy.

      It’s no wonder she’s attracted to pursuing a career in law. But with so much on her plate, including a divorce from Gemini Kanye West, are her dreams truly within reach? What do the stars say?

      According to StyleCaster, Libras around the middle of June are likely to experience a conflict of priorities, and a firm decision will have to be made.

      Toward the end of the month, certain planetary movements mean that Libras will be able to find a greater sense of direction and purpose.

      What this means for Kim is that big realisations will probably hit by the end of June, leading her to re-evaluate her priorities and make some tough choices.

      She has been through some immense changes recently, and her Libra sign means that she will do whatever it takes to bring her life back into balance.

      THE STAR SIGN YOU SHOULD DATE BASED ON YOUR MARS SIGN

      In astrology Mars is the planet of desire, proactivity and passion.

      It has a seriously significant impact on our relationships, including how we deal with bae, especially when they’re pushing our buttons.

      You can find out your Mars sign here. The planet gives us amazing insight into how we chase, stalk (yes, we mean those 20 missed calls) and get the ball rolling dating-wise.

      So, without further ado let’s have a look at what the warrior planet tells us about which signs we should be dating.

      Mars the matchmaker

      Aries

      If your Mars is in Aries other signs are turned on by your straight shooting conversation style and confidence.

      Thrill-seeking Aquarius will match your swag and you’ll go on a flurry of exciting dates.

      Taurus

      Hardworking Taurus likes to treat themselves but they also expect the same from their partner.

      If your Mars sign is here you would do well to date a Leo. Despite their perceived aloofness, Leos are considered one of the most generous signs of the zodiac.

      Gemini

      If your Mars is in Gemini you need to date a sign who you have a meeting of minds with.

      Cerebral Virgo would make an excellent match as you’ll talk for Britain while staring into each other’s eyes.

      Cancer

      Feeling safe is a big deal for those of us with our Mars sign in cancer.

      With the warrior planet in this family-focused sign, you will do well to date someone reliable who shares similar values like dependable Capricorn.

      Leo

      When it comes to dating, Mars in Leo wants all the bells and whistles. It needs a sign who will pamper them and take them to all the best places.

      Aquarius is an amazing match chemistry-wise as long as they respect Leo’s need to be adored.

      Virgo

      Mars in Virgo will do well to date a more chilled out sign such as go-with-the flow Pisces.

      The detail-driven Virgo like to lead, but water sign Pisces can help them to loosen up a little.

      Libra

      Air sign Libra likes to keep the balance in relationships and prides themselves on pulling out all the stops in a relationship.

      Leos would make a great date match and lap up all the attention.

      Scorpio

      Water sign Scorpio wants their date to offer passion with a capital ‘P’.

      Aries is ruled by Mars and has loads of stamina so expect this date to go with a bang!

      Sagittarius

      Mars in Sagittarius means you’re looking for a date to explore the world with or at least the bedroom.

      Gemini would make a great date. Don’t be surprised if you go to a few different places in the same night.

      Capricorn

      You need a date who will get your non-stop ambition and work ethic.

      Tear yourself away from that spreadsheet and hook up with goal-oriented Scorpio.

      Aquarius

      When it comes to dating you definitely like to think outside the box.

      You need a sign who is not afraid to experiment and who also values their freedom like Gemini.

      Pisces

      Empathetic Pisces will do everything they can to blow their date away the first time they meet them.

      Attention-loving Leo will appreciate this more than other signs and will reward the fish in the best way.

      WHAT IS A MUTABLE SIGN IN ASTROLOGY?

      In the signs of the zodiac, there are four signs that are considered mutable: these are Virgo, Pisces, Sagittarius and Gemini. But what exactly does this mean?

      A mutable sign is a sign that occurs near the end of a season. Virgo closes out the summer, Sagittarius brings us to the end of autumn, Pisces season happens at the end of winter, and Gemini marks the final part of spring.

      What this means for people whose birthday falls under these signs is that they are typically very open to change.

      While cardinal signs are known as the ‘starters’, coming at the beginning of a new season, these mutable signs are considered the ‘enders’ and tend to be very adaptable and open to learning new things. 

      They’re considered flexible and aren’t afraid to change their minds or bring things to a close when necessary.

      WHICH FAMOUS FACES HAVE THE GEMINI STAR SIGN?

      Naomi Campbell

      This legendary supermodel is a classic Gemini, known for having a range of personalities.

      Witty, versatile and sharp as a tack, she effortlessly changer her persona with a mere smile to the camera.

      Tom Holland

      Natalie Portman

      Geminis are indecisive, and even Natalie Portman can’t escape that trait.

      A self-proclaimed “bad decision maker,” the Black Swan actress also possesses the intelligence and charm that make Geminis such fun to be around.

      WHAT ARE THE FOUR ELEMENTS AND WHAT DO THEY MEAN FOR YOUR STAR SIGN?

      You’ve probably heard of the four elements Earth, Water, Fire and Air, but what do they mean for your horoscope and your day-to-day life?

      Every sign of the zodiac is connected to one of the four elements: Scorpio, Cancer and Pisces are Water signs, Virgo, Capricorn and Taurus are Earth signs, Leo, Sagittarius and Aries are Fire signs, and Libra, Gemini and Aquarius are Air signs.

      Your birth chart probably also contains aspects of the other three elements, but your main element is connected to your star sign (AKA your sun sign).

      The element of Water is associated with emotions, intuition, and the heart. This means Water signs are probably the ones dabbing their eyes during a tear-jerker film – but they are also likely to care deeply and listen to their heart when making decisions.

      Earth signs tend to be grounded, practical, and good at self-management. They’re likely to be a great worker and a reliable partner and friend. However, they can sometimes set themselves pretty high standards that are challenging to meet.

      Fire signs tend to be passionate, energetic and driven. They probably don’t struggle with motivation, and they go after their goals with enthusiasm. The flip side of this is that Fire signs can sometimes be impulsive and they might find that others don’t get as heated up about topics as they do.

      If someone is an Air sign, their strengths lie in their mind: thinking, coming up with ideas, and being an effective communicator. They might find it a challenge, though, to balance all their different ideas because they can’t stop coming up with them!

      It goes without saying that people who share the same element will tend to get along because of their similar approaches to life. However, you will also find that people with different elements in their sign will challenge you to see things differently. Variety is truly the spice of life!

      THE MEANING OF NEPTUNE IN ASTROLOGY 

      We all have 10 planets in our birth chart, and Neptune is one of them.

      Your sun sign shows what you want, the moon reveals what you need and Mercury reveals how you think, but what exactly does Neptune uncover?

      According to YourTango, the blue planet Neptune is associated with dreams and spirituality. It’s all about tweaking our compass (sounds painful) to better ourselves.

      However while full of fantasy and whimsy, Neptune is not all fun time Frankie.

      While the planet can inspire exhilarating idealism, if we fail to reach its dizzying heights the come down can be heavy.

      However, reasoning and reality are anathema to Neptune because it’s basically in charge of our hopes and dreams.

      Blimey, it sounds intense. To find out which sign your Neptune is in, just check in with your birth chart here.

      WHAT DOES THE MOON MEAN IN ASTROLOGY?

      The moon is thought to be connected to our feelings, intuition, and inner world.

      It doesn’t create its own light source — instead, it reflects the light of the sun, emphasising the moon’s receptive quality.

      The moon is also connected to the idea of water through the pull it has on the tides. Water tends to symbolise things below the surface, so you can see how the moon is thought to govern instincts and emotions.

      The phases of the moon also remind us of our own cycles, and working with these phases can help us to better understand the emotional ups and downs we all go through.

      WHAT IS YOUR STAR SIGN’S RULING PLANET?

      Each sign of the zodiac is said to be ruled by a different planet, which in turn influences the personality of that star sign. So what planet is yours ruled by, and what does that mean?

      • Aries: Mars (motivation and drive)
      • Taurus: Venus (love and sensuality)
      • Gemini: Mercury (communication and learning)
      • Cancer: the Moon (nurturing and intuitive)
      • Leo: the Sun (expressive and proud)
      • Virgo: Mercury (communication and learning)
      • Libra: Venus (love and sensuality)
      • Scorpio: Pluto (transformation and deep wisdom)
      • Sagittarius: Jupiter (luck and travel)
      • Capricorn: Saturn (structure and growth)
      • Aquarius: Uranus (individuality and change)
      • Pisces: Neptune (empathy and idealism)

      POWER OF PLUTO

      Even though power planet Pluto is the furthest away from earth it still packs a mighty punch astrologically.

      This planet’s placement in our chart signifies what we need to bin in order to welcome in the shiny and new.

      According to findyourfate, Pluto is likely to bring about major changes when the beans have been spilt, babe.

      Think drunken texts, heart to hearts and horror of all horrors, hacking into bae’s email account. Curiosity killed the cat for a reason dear friends.

      Pluto is also associated with things that we are holding on to in life which we should probably get rid off.

      We know we’ll feel better when we do but we also know those old socks are comfortable, despite all the holes…Ultimately though, Pluto helps us to progress in life. At the moment the planet is bowling around the determined house of Capricorn and will be there until 2024.

      You can find out which sign your Pluto is in here.

      WHAT IS A VENUS SIGN?

      Basically, the function of Venus astrologically is to tell us how we gel with people and give and receive love.

      The planet of beauty, love and extreme pleasure tells us a heap of things about the kind of person we are, who we are attracted to and what turns us on.

      It tells us what type of relationship we really need and all the things that give us butterflies.

        IS THERE SCIENCE BEHIND ASTROLOGY?

        Scientists claim astrology is not yet proven and that the position of stars and planets is more accurately defined as astronomy.

        Astronomy uses mathematics, physics, and chemistry in order to explain the origin and evolution of objects in the universe (including the moon, sun and planets).

        Some, however, argue astrology is different and is a natural science too, as it deals with observations and prediction of events in the sky which influences human affairs and the natural world.

        That being said, there’s said to be no conclusive evidence that astrology is backed by science, or that astrology is an accurate predictor of personality traits, future destinies or love lives, as written in Smithsonian Magazine. You can read more about it here.

        EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE CHINESE HOROSCOPE

        The Chinese zodiac consists of 12 animal signs and the Western zodiac consists of 12 star signs.

        The story about how the Chinese Animals came about is that a race was organized by the Jade Emperor – one of the most important gods in traditional Chinese religion. 

        The Emperor invited all the animals in the world to take part. As a reward for turning up, the Emperor named a year in the zodiac after each one, while the race would determine the order each animal would be placed.

        Chinese Animals in order:  Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, Pig.

        The ancient Egyptians contributed the idea that patterns of stars made up constellations, through which the sun appears to “move” at specific times during the year. It’s thought that all of these ideas came together when Alexander the Great conquered Egypt around 330 BC.

        WHAT IS THE MEANING AND SYMBOLISM OF ANGEL NUMBER 222?

        If you’ve been seeing 222 pop up on watches, receipts, page numbers, spreadsheets or anywhere else, chances are this is more than just a coincidence.

        Repeating numbers could be our angels trying to communicate with us, and knowing the secrets behind each number is the key to unlocking the message.

        In numerology, different numbers carry different significance, and when a number repeats itself its energy is even stronger.

        According to Well+Good, 222 and other angel numbers carry a variety of possible meanings. That’s why it’s essential to use your intuition to explore what the angels are telling you.

        WHAT ARE THE FOUR CARDINAL SIGNS OF THE ZODIAC?

        In astrology, star signs are considered either fixed, mutable or cardinal. The four cardinal signs are Capricorn, Libra, Cancer and Aries — but what does this mean?

        The cardinal signs fall at the beginning of a new season: Capricorn opens winter, Aries kicks off spring, Cancer welcomes in summer, and Libra heralds the beginning of autumn.

        It’s not just about placement in the year, either, because being a cardinal sign can have an effect on the personality.

        Cardinal signs love to be the first at things. They can make good leaders and innovators because they aren’t waiting for someone else to make the first move.

        They tend to be great at coming up with new ideas and they’re often the first person to take action.
