The Signs’ Physical Appearance
ARIES: Aries natives tend to have sharp and distinctive features and prominent brows. Aries rules the head and face, and some natives have birthmarks, scars, etc. on the face or head. Males may tend toward baldness – all that testosterone, perhaps? Strong bone structure, quick movements, and an upright posture are associated with this sign. Some Aries natives have a ruddy complexion, all will tend to have a strong constitution. They may tend to glance around the room, as opposed to maintaining a steady gaze, and tend to have a confident, brisk walking stride.
TAURUS: Frequently large bodied – not necessarily plump or fat, but could also be muscular and sturdy. Dark hair and eyes – remember, this could also be dark blue and dark blond as well as brown or black. Serene but steady gaze. Interestingly, Taureans often have smaller-than-expected ears. Their hair tends toward naturally curly or wavy. Ruling the throat and neck, this bodily area is often eye-catching – maybe a thick, “bull-like” neck, or perhaps a long, graceful one, but generally prominent to the observer in some way.
GEMINI: Expressive faces, reflecting their mood-of-the-moment. Gemini gives off a feeling of energy, even when they’re at rest. They may jitter a bit or shake their legs, but even if they’re not actually moving at all, there’s a sense of energy, simply waiting to explode. These natives often have “small features” – it sounds odd, but look at the face, and it may seem somewhat doll-like, with the features more centered than spread out. Fast-paced speech, to go along with their quick minds. Physically agile, naturally slim build (although of course, weight gain is always a possibility – but they’ll seem like they “should” be tall and thin, even when they’re not). Often pale-complected, with restless eyes, wanting to take in everything all at once, and frequently possess high foreheads.
CANCER: The Cancer native’s most prominent feature is a round face. Even skinny Cancers frequently have rounded, soft features, and apple cheeks. Cancer rules the stomach and breasts, and these are often noticeable in some way. The stomach may be rounded and Santa-like, or flat with six-pack abs; the Cancer female’s breasts may be large or small, but tend to be well-formed and pleasing to the eye in either case. Rounded eyes, sometimes a “moony” or “dreamy” expression. High cheekbones and a prominent brow compliment the look. Very expressive features. Limbs may be long, compared to the trunk – even short Cancerians often have a “lanky” look to their arms and legs.
LEO: In keeping with their Zodiacal symbol, Leos frequently have mane-like hair, framing their keen-eyed, well-shaped faces. They tend toward a high color in complexion, sometime ruddy. These natives will have a regal bearing, erect posture, and graceful movements. Movements are slow, but dramatic and, well “leonine!” Often almond eyes, often dark in shade – again, not necessarily brown or black, but dark blue, dark green, dark hazel. They may have a tendency toward “bad backs,” or pain in the back, neck, and shoulder area, although the shoulders themselves tend to be strong and broad.
VIRGO: Virgos possess a gentleness and grace of movement, as well as a youthful appearance, tending to seem younger than their years. Some blush easily, though more often because they’ve been embarrassed by being singled out, rather than from prudishness. While Virgo’s symbol is the Virgin, this doesn’t make them cold or asexual, but they do tend to be modest. Bright, clear eyes with a gentle but direct expression, delicate noses, and well-shaped, curvy lips are Virginian traits. They can be obsessed by their own appearances, seeing flaws that others don’t, and attempting to “hide” them. You may catch them staring at their own expressions in the mirror, busy analyzing perceived flaws and good points, but only when they think no one’s looking! When it comes to the things they can manage about their appearances, Virgo goes to extremes: neatniks and slobs both typify the Virginian nature. Frequently they can look somewhat fragile, but surprise you with their physical strength. May be subject to digestive problems, upset stomachs, and outbreaks of nervousness and insecurity.
LIBRA: Libra natives are truly Venus’s children, with well-shaped lips and noses, sometimes heart-shaped or oval faces. Dimpled cheeks and cleft chins are common. Generally well-proportioned features and pleasant expressions, even when they’re not feeling pleasant. Movements tend to be graceful, and facial features tend to be more rounded than angular. Another Libran characterisic is a clear and melodious speaking voice. Even Libras who are not conventionally attractive will have a charm to them – their faces have character, whether they’re typically beautiful or not. Gorgeous smiles, and lovely, infectious laughter.
SCORPIO: Scorpio really is all about the eyes. Dark or light, the gaze will be piercing and direct, and unless they’re shooting vengeful daggers from them, people will often comment on how beautiful Scorp’s eyes are. Direct eye contact is this sign’s hallmark, never “shifty eyed.” Sharp features, prominent cheekbones and noses, are common, similar in resemblance to a bird of prey. Scorpios tend to have strong constitutions, and often powerful-looking physiques. Often pale-complected – again, remember, “paleness” does not always equate to “whiteness”. Most Scorpios are poker-faced, able to keep their inner emotions from their outward expressions. Ruling the reproductive organs, Scorpio may be prone to possible health problems with same. Magnetic and mysterious, sensual and compelling.
SAGITTARIUS: Sag’s most noticeable physical trait is “clumsy grace.” Sound contradictory? It’s really not. Think of a newborn foal, teetering and tottering on its legs, while still showing glimpses of the powerful, athletic horse it will one day become. Openness and friendliness show in the Archer’s face and posture. Sag natives may lean forward when conversing with you, getting physically closer to engage emotional closeness. Broad foreheads and cheerful expressions are the norm, as are quick movements and dramatic gestures. They sometimes play with their hair, mostly unconsciously, casually tossing their head to sweep it back, or grabbing a lock and tugging at it. Sagittarians often have beautiful, clear, sparkling eyes. Naturally, they tend toward a strong, athletic build, but can become plump due to their love of food and drink.
CAPRICORN: When talking to a Cap, folks are often struck by their well-modulated, often deep speaking voices. Capricorns frequently have naturally straight hair, and dark or olive complexions. Lacking the jittery energy of other signs, the Goat will generally make slower, more deliberate movements. When at rest, they’ll exhibit steady, somewhat serious expressions. The Goat will generally have a straight, well-shaped nose. Sensitive skin, sometimes subject to rashes, outbreaks, or easy bruising. Noticeable teeth – perhaps because they’re straight, white and even, perhaps because they’re crooked or have many fillings. Grace of manner, but sometimes difficulty relaxing; may appear uptight, bored, or uncomfortable, but once they get past their discomfort, they will appear fresh and warm.
AQUARIUS: One common Aquarian trait is a high forehead. Generally soft-spoken and polite, Aquarius can fly off at a moment’s notice into eccentricity. These natives often have dreamy, light-colored eyes, naturally straight and light-colored hair, finely-chiseled, attractive facial features, and lovely profiles. They’re frequently broad through both hips and shoulders – males and females alike. They often have strong, shapely legs. Aquarians are very sensitive to weather and barometric pressure, so expect to find them bundled up in the winter time, stripped down in hot weather. Great listeners, equally wonderful story-tellers.
PISCES: Gentleness combined with keen intuition that shows in the eyes. Graceful, quick movements. Pisceans tend to have a quite charming manner and a lovely smile. Ruling the feet, Pisceans often have small, delicate feet, or big old clodhoppers. Pisces hair tends to be soft and fine, sometimes naturally wavy and lighter-colored. Soft skin, beautiful, dreamy, noticeable eyes. Elegant, flowing movements. Even tall Pisceans can appear “small” for some reason. Tranquil expression, languid affect. Beautiful smiles, mischievous grins, tinkling laughter.
