    The signs of the zodiac are the cornerstone of astrology. If you know the sign you were born under, you can learn much about yourself from it. Here are the twelve signs of the zodiac, their planetary rulers, and their interpretations:

    The signs of the zodiac exert strong influence on personal traits, abilities, and potentialities. In a general sense, for instance, Aries is associated with mental ability. Taurus implies physical force. An adaptable nature is under the patronage of Gemini. Cancer, on the other hand, stresses conservative tradition. Leo is exuberant and dominating. Virgo is critical. Libra is equated with justice. Daring men with initiative look toward Scorpio as their protector. Sagittarius denotes a dynamic personality. Intellectual capacity is conditioned by Capricorn. Humane traits belong to Aquarius, while a humble modesty hides behind Pisces.

    There is a law of opposites in astrology. Each sign in a pair seeks and is attracted to the qualities of its opposing, yet complimentary sign. For example:

    Aries wants to obtain the balanced judgment of Libra; Libra desires to have more of the self-direction of Aries. Taurus needs the rejuvenative powers of Scorpio, while Scorpio seeks the inner stability of Taurus. Gemini wishes to develop the breadth of vision embodied in Sagittarius, while Sagittarius searches for the alacrity and methodology of Gemini. Cancer seeks the power, endurance and discipline of Capricorn; Capricorn seeks the softness and understanding of Cancer. Leo needs the social communicativeness of Aquarius, while Aquarius searches for the individuality and strength of purpose embodied in Leo. Virgo is trying to find the complete selflessness of Pisces, while Pisces desires the ability to discriminate in its self-assertions, as does Virgo...
