The sign of the twins is an air sign and ruled by quick-witted Mercury, the God of communication, trade and trickery. Mercury always follows his curiosity and never sits still.
Taurus, the Moon-Bull is sacred to the Earth-Goddess. He symbolises the fertility and virility that restores the life to the land each spring
Aries is the first sign of the natural zodiac and marks the Spring Equinox. The forces of light and darkness are in balance, but from now on, the young Sun is gaining strength every day.

Pisces, also known as ‘the fishes’, is depicted by two fishes that are joined by a cord but swim in opposite directions. Pisces is the last sign of the natural Zodiac and as such, it is perhaps the most complex. By the time the Sun reaches Pisces, the path of individuation has almost come full circle.
Aquarius, the Water Bearer, is associated with the beautiful youth Ganymede. Idealistic, visionary, and inspired by the cosmic waters, Aquarius acts almost as a conduit between the realm of the gods and the world of human affairs.
