We love to learn about ourselves and our personalities. If we didn’t, there wouldn’t be so many online-quizzes, lists, and personality tests (like this one about what you would look like as a dog). People are fascinating, and life is all about learning, growing, and developing into our best selves.
Astrology can guide us in our journey of self-discovery. The stars have insights into what makes us tick, and why we respond to certain things, while others leave us cold. It’s funny, you never know what’s going to resonate with you or help you to see something about yourself that you never even considered.
Symbols are a main part of astrology and each sign has its own symbol such as the water bearer, the twins, and the lion. A symbol is both a visual clue to other personality traits, and a representation of a concept, object, or relationship. Symbols go beyond what’s known or seen by creating associations. Sometimes the most illuminating connections are the ones that couldn’t be more different.
Here we’ve matched the zodiac signs with some Instagram famous animals to gain even further insights into our personalities.
