Twelve Zodiac Signs and Their Symbols

In astrology, there are twelve zodiac signs, each symbolizing a distinct energy and set of characteristics that can influence various aspects of our lives, not just our core personalities as reflected by our Sun signs.

I’ve also included the symbol/emoji for Ophiuchus in the end of the table for anyone interested. Known as the “13th sign,” Ophiuchus is not traditionally part of the zodiac. It’s located between Scorpio and Sagittarius.

Astrology Elements Symbols

In astrology, the four elementsβ€”Fire, Earth, Air, and Waterβ€”serve as a foundational concept, categorizing the twelve zodiac signs into four distinct groups based on their elemental affinity. Each element represents a fundamental type of energy and a unique approach to life:

  • Fire signs are known for their passion, enthusiasm, and impulsiveness.
  • Earth signs are practical, grounded, and reliable.
  • Air signs are intellectual, social, and communicative.
  • Water signs are emotional, intuitive, and sensitive.

I have a few activities for you to learn astrology elements and modalities (the next part in this article):

Astrology Modalities Symbols

In astrology, modalities or modes refer to the three categories that the twelve zodiac signs are divided into. Each modality represents a different type of energy and approach to life.

  • Cardinal signs are initiators
  • Fixed signs are stabilizers
  • Mutable signs are adaptable

The symbols used in the table below are not official Unicode representations of astrological modes, but they closely resemble the symbols commonly used to represent these concepts. These visual aids can help to better understand and differentiate the modalities within the zodiac.

My passion for astrology began in childhood with my grandpa showing me the stars and constellations. I grew up reading horoscopes and absorbing the knowledge from an astrology book, "The Sun Signs," that we had at home. Time has only deepened my love for astrology, leading me to create AstroMango. Here, I'm excited to share my lifelong passion with you!
