Astrology is the science that studies the relationship between the movement of the stars and planets in the sky and the internal and external life of a person. It is based on the idea of reality as governed by the impersonal will of the Absolute—the prime cause of the entire manifested world—and the concept of reincarnation, according to which each person has an immortal soul, and it, consistently incarnating in various conditions, seeks to gain a certain experience, to free themselves from the shackles that bind them and dissolve into the Absolute that originally gave them birth. Has the Absolute chosen the best zodiac sign?
Fate poses the problem of choice in a person's life very acutely: either voluntary self-restraint and work (both internal and external), or suffering and forced restrictions. Astrology helps us find and realize this alternative and make life with its difficulties and troubles meaningful, at least within the framework of personal destiny. However, to do this, you need to overcome the strong cliches of social consciousness in the subconscious and change the usual methods of thinking.

Astrology quite accurately answers the question of how to live and what the purpose of a person's life is. The goal is to study the birth chart and turn its potential into reality. The harmonious aspects give ability and luck; both should be used to solve external and internal problems and overcome the external and internal obstacles that the stressful aspects pose in abundance.
Everything in the world, according to ancient Indian wisdom, is in one of three states (time phases): emergence, formation and destruction (dissolution). Accordingly, each of the four elements is represented in the world in three states, symbolized by the zodiac signs. The element of fire is expressed by Aries, Leo and Sagittarius, the element of earth—Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn, the element of air—Gemini, Libra and Aquarius, the element of water—Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.
The Sun sign determines the style of expression of the will of a person and their behavior according to the male type.
The Moon sign defines the style of reflex, unconscious reactions, adaptation features, behavior according to the female type, under the pressure of circumstances and social programs.
The sign on the Ascendant (rising sign), i. e. the sign that ascended in the east at the time of birth, determines the style of direct perception of the world and self-expression; in other words, it is the nature of the first impression that a person makes on the world, and the world on the person.
At any given time, a person can have either the Sun, the Moon, or the ascendant accentuated. When a person gathers one’s will—this is when the Sun steps in. If the Sun is in Capricorn, the person will give an order, if in Leo—the person will press hard, if in Aries—the person will not hesitate to rush into battle, if in Scorpio—the person will look so magnetically gloomy that you will automatically obey. The Moon gets to work when in comes to habits, past experiences, the influence of the mother, social programs and prejudices, when people go with the flow.
Hopefully, this preface will help us understand which zodiac sign is the best.
(21 March–19 April)
Aries is the fire sign of the phase of emergence, the first fire sign, the primary impulse to existence. Aries people express themselves through energetic practical action, but they need a spark. Aries resembles a champagne cork, which noisily flies out of the bottle and immediately falls.
In the absence of an idea or work that excites their enthusiasm, Aries natives feel depressed. However, as a rule, their depression passes quickly, and Aries is again energetic and on the go.
Aries is the best zodiac sign when you need to launch a startup project, fight a battle, overcome someone’s resistance.
(20 April–20 May)
Taurus is the first sign of the earth element, its manifestation in the phase of emergence. Here, all the earth qualities are expressed in a somewhat exaggerated way. Taurus strives to do everything reliably, fundamentally, firmly, confidently. However, striving does not mean doing it.
Taurus perceives the world through forms, they need to touch everything with their hands. Through touch, they usually get more information than you can imagine. After shaking hands with a stranger, even an ignorant Taurus can easily understand whether they can trust someone or not, and whether the acquaintance is promising.
Taurus is the best zodiac sign when it comes to continuous work (even without enthusiasm), patience and perseverance.
(21 May–20 June)
Gemini has a superficial, lively mind, they easily learn foreign languages, but perceive them formally as a means of information transfer. The most striking thing is that Gemini, deep down, also perceives emotions as a variant of information, which often makes them seem cold; this, however, does not mean that their human or spiritual level is low.
Therefore, Gemini can be excellent translators of fiction, having the most remote, purely mental idea of the mental suffering of the more emotional characters of the story, born under the predominant influence of the signs of the element of water or earth; but it is quite difficult for Gemini to write about such people themselves.
In other words, the average Gemini is happy when establishing any connection: between what and why—they care little. It is important for them to feel needed, to control information flows, to know everything first, and so on.
Gemini is the best zodiac sign when it comes to all sorts of communication and liaising.
(21 June–22 July)
Cancer represents the element of water in the phase of emeregence. Here, the water element is primarily expressed in the idea of a deep, essential perception of reality, as a result of which a person undergoes internal transformation.
Cancers cling very tenaciously to their property, environment, and system of mental representations of the world in general and any fragment of it in particular. No one knows what is going on in the depths of Cancer's soul, including themselves, but mysterious processes are constantly going on there. There are many problems in their lives, and it is very difficult to tell other people about them, because words are not enough to express them.
Cancer has a vividly emotional perception of life and can express it by becoming a writer or an artist. Advanced Cancer is a psychologist who, after talking with you for a couple of hours on the train, sometimes solves a problem that has tormented you for half your life.
Cancer is the best zodiac sign when it comes to taking care of others and indirect influence (historians, psychologists, psychoanalysts, housewives).
(23 July–22 August)
Leo is the second sign of the element of fire in the Zodiac. Leo opens the formation phase, where the elements are already aware of themselves. Leos seems to understand that they represent the most intense expression of the element of fire and treats the world accordingly.
Leo enjoys a constant, steady flow of energy, which does not depend on anyone. If Aries needs a spark, an external source of inspiration, Leos do well on their own. Despite the external persuasive power, Leo is easy to manipulate, if you find an approach to them. Leo should not be contradicted directly, but you can always appeal to their innate nobility, ask them for anything, and they will try to fulfill your request if they feel that you really put yourself below them.
The bottleneck of Leo is that they can see well only the part of reality that is illuminated by their energy, while completely ignoring all the rest.
Leo is the best zodiac sign when it comes to creativity and passion. They make excellent actors.
(23 August–22 September)
Virgo represents the earth element in its developed form (formation phase). The most characteristic feature of the Virgo is the vision and feeling of the form through details—through them, Virgo implements the highest meaning of being.
Unlike Taurus, who perceives the form instinctively, Virgos are aware of themselves as the bearers of the form and are very proud of it despising all other signs (except Taurus) and considering them ephemeral idealists. The paradox of Virgo is that they break up the details to such an extent that they lose their meaning, and the sense of form disappears.
Virgos treat cleanliness and order painfully, instinctively feeling that these are their main karmic tasks. The restoration of purity is the rebirth of the original form, and, by the way, is the most important magical act.
Virgo is the best zodiac sign when it comes to diligence and all sorts of detail. Virgo is a great analyst, chemist, technologist and engineer.
(23 September–22 October)
Libra—the air sign of the formation phase—embodies the highest law of nature, the law of balance and universal connection manifested through harmony. Libra is a symbol of a balanced, harmoniously developing process.
Libra is smart quickly processing habitual situations and instantly assessing new ones. Their natural impulse is always to take the position of a fair judge who will look at the issue from all sides and pass an impartial verdict. At the same time, however, as an air sign, Libra is intelligent, logical, active, but not at all emotional, often even openly cold. They believe that emotionality leads to partiality and bias, but they forget that the lack of empathy often makes it difficult to understand. Libra, like no other sign, is characterized by intellectual arrogance, love for a sense of belonging, but not to anything, as Gemini, but to the next highest social circle.
Libra is the best zodiac sign when it comes to consistency, reliability, and creativity.
(23 October–21 November)
Scorpio represents the element of water in the formation phase. It thus symbolizes the most developed manifestation of the idea of inner transformation, and in particular of death, for death is part of the process of transformation.
Inside, Scorpio is very emotional, because they experience constant changes in their psyche, which are accompanied by deep and strong emotions. However, being very secretive, Scorpio does not like to discover them. All Scorpios are closed psychologically, and few people understand their deep sense of self-esteem and emotionality. They remember everything, and especially evil. Scorpios are inventive and, using their psychological abilities, can easily manipulate people. The question of ethics is whether Scorpios do this for themselves or for the sake of others. Pursuing inferior goals, Scorpio quickly degrades.
Scorpio is the best zodiac sign when it comes to understanding other people’s motives. Scorpio is a natural psychologist.
(22 November–21 December)
Sagittarius belongs to the element of fire and opens the phase of dissolution, where the elements are already represented several times perfectly, and their destruction begins. In Sagittarius, the element of fire is expressed more subtly than in Aries and Leo, Sagittarius is more likely to use words than a gun, but, nevertheless, Sagittarius understands both weapons perfectly.
Sagittarians see the world as a whole and simply do not have time to scatter their energy and focus on insignificant details, such as your inner life. In general, Sagittarius radiates an irresistible charm. They do not have the rudeness of Aries, the power of direct pressure of Leo, but their energy level in general is not less than that of these signs; and what is charm, if not an energy flow?
The main ideal of Sagittarius is freedom, which is manifested literally in everything, in particular, in relation to marriage.
Sagittarius is the best zodiac sign when it comes to generating ideas, defending ideals, philosophy, and geography.
(22 December–19 January)
Capricorn refers to the phase of dissolution of the earth elements. Capricorn’s symbol is a goat with a fish tail, and such an “animal” is very uncomfortable to move in real world, especially to climb a mountain. However, it is this that is most typical for Capricorn.
Capricorn does not have the straightforwardness of Taurus, and the pettiness that is typical of Virgo. Capricorn is quite flexible, non-dogmatic and capable of intrigue easily correlating various input data. This zodiac sign is characterized by purposefulness, responsibility, seriousness. By nature, Capricorns are pessimists—they do not like to predict the future out loud, although they see it, perhaps, better than any other sign.
However, Capricorn lacks the imagination to anticipate the fantastic game of life, and they feel it. Capricorn is not a fanatic, but this zodiac sign is very consistent and strong.
Astrologers like to talk about which zodiac sign is the strongest. It depends on the distance. At short distances (days), Aries is the strongest; at longer distances (years and months)—Scorpio; at even longer distances (years)—Taurus, and if we talk about decades, it is certainly Capricorn. Capricorn is the best zodiac sign when it comes to strategic planning and careful implementation.
(20 January–18 February)
Aquarius represents the element of air in the phase of dissolution. Here, the air element (communication, information) finds its somewhat ideal expression.
Aquarius connects what has not been connected before, and considers what no one has ever thought of considering. Aquarius is interested in signs, symbols, especially those that are organized into complete systems, which can give a scientist who is looking for the laws of the world, a philologist or an esoteric magician. Aquarius is a sign of great scientific discoveries, inventions and progress in general.
Aquarius is a cold sign. If Sagittarians translate the will of God through their hearts, Aquarians do this through their heads. At the same time, Aquarians are smart and attentive to the world around them, which can mislead you. If a sociable and friendly person starts asking personal questions, but keeps somewhat aloof, do not be fooled into thinking that the person is interested in you personally: it is very likely that you’ve met Aquarius.
Aquarius is the best zodiac sign when it comes to revolutionary thinking, paradoxes, social structures, and inventions.
(19 February–20 March)
Pisceans belong to the element of water, the phase of dissolution. They are influenced by all the elements and zodiac signs in general. The element of water gives Pisces excellent adaptability—they feel comfortable almost everywhere.
Pisces is very prone to live in the world of their emotions and imagination, which is often more real to them than the outside world, and the connection between the internal and external world is often too insignificant for them.
In meditation, Pisces can go to a high mental plane and pronounce phrases (often fragments), accurate and correct, completely without understanding their meaning. Pisces is very well characterized by the desire for inner subtle perfection.
Pisces has an exceptionally developed intuition, often at the expense of clarity of thought.
Pisces is the best zodiac sign when it comes to occult sciences, magic, telepathy. They love religions, sometimes several at once, and their prayers are real paths to God for them.
