Taurus (April 21 – May 21)
Taurus is an earth sign ruled by the planet Venus. It sits in the constellation Taurus, which is Latin for ‘Bull’.

They are compatible with Scorpios and Cancers.
Gemini (May 22 – June 21)
Gemini’s constellation is the Twins, meaning that people born in this sign are often prone to mood swings, like the dual personalities of the Twins in the constellation – but they are also extremely curious and affectionate.

They are very sociable and get along with Sagittarius and Aquarius.

Cancer is the first water sign, ruled by the moon and its constellation is the Crab. Cancers have a very active imagination, making them great artists. They are very sensitive and intuitive.

They get along well with Capricorn and Taurus.

Another fire sign, Leo is in the constellation of the Lion. Leos are ruled by the Sun, making them passionate and cheerful.

The courage of the lion comes out in Leos, who get along with Aquarius and Gemini.

Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)
