Icons Of Zodiac Sign

Astrology symbols have been used to represent the different signs of the zodiac for many generations. These icons are easily recognized and easy to remember once you have been exposed to them. The astrology symbols are closely linked to the zodiac sign they represent.

Perhaps the easiest icon to remember is Aquarius. This is the easiest image to remember of the astrology symbols because it is represented with wave-like patterns that resemble water. Of course, you can relate the waves to water and to an aquarium as well. This water icon is a perfect representation of the water-bearer it represents.

Aries and Taurus are both quickly recognized astrology symbols. Aries represents a goat and its image resembles the horns on a goat’s head. Taurus is the bull and that can be remembered through the Spanish word for bull. The image for Taurus is a round sphere topped off with two bull-like horns.

Gemini and Pisces are quite similar because they are both twin astrology symbols. Gemini’s image resembles the Roman numeral II. Pisces resembles two fish. This is appropriate for the Pisces zodiac sign because the icon for the astrological sign is a pair of fish.

Leo is the lion and it is represented by an icon that resembles the lion’s mane. This appropriate image is clean and simple but it one of the most clearly connected visual representations of the astrology symbols.

Scorpio and Virgo are very similar in appearance. These two astrology symbols both look like the letter M. Scorpio differs from Virgo in that it has a “tail” that sticks out to the point of an arrow outwards. Virgo’s “tail” turns inward and has no arrow at its tip. These remarkably different astrology symbols are nearly the same in appearance.

Two astrology symbols that are very different in appearance are Cancer and Sagittarius. Sagittarius is represented by a clean, straight arrow that points up and to the right. Cancer is represented by two rounded spheres that encircle one another. The Sagittarian sign is quite masculine while the Cancer sign is feminine.

Perhaps the oddest of the astrology symbols is Capricorn. I know this because I am one. This image is represents the goat-fish. Yes, goat-fish. It isn’t the most attractive image on the planet but the astrological symbol itself isn’t so bad. It basically looks like the initials VS.

Finally, there is Libra. This symbol represents balance and its image reminds the onlooker of the scales of justice seen in many courthouses. These simple astrology symbols have stood the test of time. They will probably be around for generations to come.
