Monthly Zodiac Article – February


Ananya Joseph


The zodiac signs for this month are Aquarius and Pisces. Aquarius is the 11th sign in the zodiac and Pisces is the 12th. The Aquarius symbol represents a water bearer and  Pisces in Latin means fish. People whose zodiac signs are Aquarius are usually advanced, independent, smart, and optimistic. Pisces people are sympathetic, emotionally sensitive, gracious, and adaptable. 

Aquarius is between January 21st and February 20th. According to ancient myth, the water bearer is a boy named Ganymede, the son of King Tros. It was said that, while he was tending to his flock, Zeus spotted him and liked him so he came down in the form of a bird and took him to the Heavens. From there he served as a water bearer to all the gods. 

Air signs (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius) are all intellectuals. They are all very social and peculiar. This constellation was one of the oldest documented. It was recorded in the second century by astrologist Ptolemy. Aquarians have a lot to offer to our world because of their smarts  Aquarius is most compatible with the air signs, Gemini or Libra.

 People born from February 18th – March 20th are the Pisces zodiac. According to ancient mythology, Pisces is represented by a fish because it was what Aphrodite and her son, Eros transformed into in order to escape Typhon, the father of all monsters. There are also other myths. An article on Pisces mythology states, Another myth is that an egg fell into the Euphrates river. It was then rolled to the shore by fish. Doves sat on the egg until it hatched, out from which came Aphrodite. As a sign of gratitude towards the fish, Aphrodite put the fish into the night sky.” 

Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces are all water signs, so the personalities appear to be intuitive and sensitive at times. They love to care for others but have a hard time accepting help. With their easy-going attitude and capability to get along with everyone, they quickly become the most popular and liked people. They follow their sense, rather than the logic they have. 

Celebrities with the Aquarius zodiac sign include Harry Styles, Michael Jordan, Shakira, Jennifer Aniston, Cristiano Ronaldo, and The Weeknd. Celebrities with the Pisces zodiac are Rihanna, Simone Biles, Daniel Craig, Stephen Curry, Carrie Underwood, and Justin Beiber.  

Our principal Mr.Ferry is also an Aquarius. When asked if he matches the optimistic and self-reliant traits of an Aquarius, he said,” I definitely try to be optimistic. I typically look at life through a positive lens- not all the time but most. My dad is also an 86 year old Aquarius and he is the most optimistic person I know, so maybe some of it rubbed off onto me. Since an early age, I have always tried to be self-reliant. I had my first job at 14, working at a gas station and helping clean office buildings. I liked making my own money and not having to ask my parents for money to do some of the things I liked to do.” Based on this we can tell that Aquarius and Pisces are very lovely people and we are lucky if we have one in our life. `
