Your Mythological Self

Your Mythological Self
Each Sun sign has a myth illustrated by its ruling planet. By understanding your own myth and learning how to live its valuable principles, you'll lead a more fulfilling life and truly become yourself in the process.

Aries
Your symbol is the head-butting Ram; your myth is Mars, the god of war. But don't feel as if you have to live out your myth aggressively. Instead, simply understand that middle-of-the-road is often your best approach. Your strength lies in avoiding distractions and maintaining focus on your goal.

Taurus
Your symbol is the Bull and your myth is earthy Venus. Both connect you to nature, the body and the world of the five senses. Your essential talent is being firmly rooted, alive to the real world and understanding the pleasures it brings. But you also realize -- like the sacred Bull of Cretan myth -- that not everything can go on forever.

Gemini
Your symbol is the Twins and your ruler is airy Mercury. In mythology, one twin is divine and the other is human, so your inner quest is to find your missing half. Follow Mercury's lead: Press ever onward in your determination to find wholeness, and cast your net as widely as possible.

Cancer
Your symbol is the Crab; your ruler is the Moon. Your myth has to do with the Great Mother, who produces goodness to feed others. You're creative in the widest sense as you constantly aim for perfection, and at times you need to use your hard shell to protect your inner softness. Like the tide ruled by the Moon, you're constantly coming and going. Movement is your essence.

Leo
Your symbol is the Lion, king of the beasts; your ruler is the Sun. Your myth is a regal one. To be who you truly are, you need to emulate the Sun -- always at the center, giving warmth and light to those who surround you. You won't be fulfilled tucked out of sight. Rather, you need to roar, inspire and instill respect with your inner fire and the strength of your personality.

Your symbol is the goddess of the harvest; your ruler is earthy Mercury. Your myth involves hard work that achieves tangible success. The ground must be tilled, the seed sown, the plants tended, the crop brought in and the wheat sorted from the chaff. Your willingness to work, your eye for detail and your common sense are what will feed not just yourself, but others around you.

Libra
Your symbol is the Scales and your ruler is airy Venus. Your myth is about finding balance in everything you do, which at times will have you wobbling from one opposite to the other. You can be indecisive, but ultimately your judgement is sound. Venus helps you mediate arguments, so justice and fair-mindedness will always be part of who you are.

Scorpio
Your symbol is the Scorpion, and your rulers are Mars and Pluto. Your myth is an intense one that brings you an understanding of the need for deep transformations throughout life. Pluto was the ruler of the underworld, and you need to go way below the surface to find what's truly of value. Letting go of superficiality is your key.

Sagittarius
Your symbol is the bow-and-arrow-wielding Centaur -- half man, half horse -- and your ruler is Jupiter. Living your myth demands that you travel far in both mind and body. A healer as well as adventurer, the Centaur was immensely knowledgeable. Jupiter helps you use your native optimism to see the possibility for expansion in all things. You are about breadth, not depth.

Capricorn
Your symbol is the Goat and your ruler is Saturn. Your myth is about aiming for the peak, and realizing that it will take hard work, self-discipline and perseverance to get there. You stand on the threshold between two worlds, so you're able to turn ideas into monetary rewards and creative achievements. Saturn helps you understand that all things take time.

Aquarius
Your symbol is the Water Carrier, and your rulers are Saturn and Uranus. Your myth is not about emotions, and since you're a thinker and a communicator, you help others understand how the world works. Uranus helps you push against boundaries and think out of the box -- no matter what the consequences.

Pisces
Your symbol is the Two Fishes; your ruler is Neptune. Your myth involves a connection to the greater cosmos, underlining the importance of swimming with (rather than against) the tide. Neptune connects you to not just oceanic depths, but also celestial heights. The world that lies beyond should be your oyster!
