Astrological Signs and Their Looks



Theories on Astrological Signs and their Appearance

The Pythagoreans ( Followers of Pythagoras of Samos - 5th century BCE) were gratuitously picked apart for proclaiming the alleged philosophy of metempsychosis (reincarnation or transmigration of the soul).

School of Athens

Pythagoras of Samos

This Idea was passed around the naïve and was also just a subterfuge to hide a hallowed truth.

Greek religious mystics thought that from the source base of souls contained in the Milky Way, the soul of man passed through one of the 12 doors of the zodiac band, and settled into the physical body.

The soul was said to embody the emblematic character produced by Greeks mágos to correspond to their respective zodiac constellations.

If the soul was embodied through Aries, it was alleged to be born in the personification of a ram. If in Taurus -- the Bull, Cancer --the Crab, and so on.

Therefore, the 12 mystical characters (zodiac signs) and their natures by coming into physical form, represent all humankind.

The philosophy of metempsychosis didn't have bearing on what you could physically see of human beings, but instead to the unseen incorporeal spirit drifting along in the stars.

However, accepting evolution we would see the physical manifestation of these zodiac characters in the looks and manners of human beings.

Astrological Sign Appearances Within a Family



In astrology one person born in one part of the year and their siblings born at a different time may not have the same looks or affectations.

But, if you match them up with another person who is of no relation but of the same star sign and you'll find similarity in their distinctive behaviors and or looks.

Astrology doesn't profess to be the rule in appearance or manner and it doesn't refute genetics, since the subject may share many facial features and physical mannerisms with their family members.

Here is where these descriptions can help:

Using descriptions for astrological signs and their looks may help to answer why some people within the same family look so unalike.

Some last words on Astrological Signs and the Appearance

It's curious how the imagery described by the astrological signs are expressed in the ones born in those signs.

On this page, you'll find distinguishing features of the persona and body type of the zodiac signs.

Sometimes they'll help in guessing what Sign or Rising sign someone is on sight.

A word about Rising signs, the Planets of the Sign that is rising may altar physical descriptions of some people.

These physical description applies to all Zodiac Signs, but is particularly marked when these Planets are rising in it's own sign.

Mars gives a deep golden bronze tone to the skin.
Saturn gives a tan tone to the skin.
Moon gives a paleness or a translucence to the skin.

Saturn gives a shorter body.
Venus and Jupiter give a tendency to have or become stout or chubby.
Mercury makes a taller body, so does Uranus.

Still, you have to use these descriptions along with the ones for the Sun sign.

Note***
Where you see a particular Rising/Ascendant sign noted, it's because these features are also seen in the zodiac sign rising as well as the sun sign.***
