Zodiac Emojis: ✨♈️ Enhance Your Astrology Content ♌️✨
Need to break the ice with someone new? Why not ask them what their zodiac sign is? Astrology questions make for great conversation starters; they’re an interesting topic to work with, and second, it’s something anyone can relate to.
Everyone’s got a zodiac sign, based on the reflection of the position of the sun when they were born. When you tell someone your sign, you’re revealing a part of your personality, which draws you closer to the person you’re speaking to.
Online, this practice becomes more dynamic and fun with the presence of zodiac emojis users add to their conversations and social media posts.
As its name indicates, zodiac emojis are, you guessed it, zodiac symbols or zodiac in emoji form. There are 12 standard zodiac signs in total, which means there are 12 zodiac emojis all in all.
These symbols are grouped into four elements—fire, earth, air, and water. Each zodiac sign has an element assigned to it as follows.
For the Fire element, under it are the Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. Meanwhile, those falling under the Water element include Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. Within the element of Earth are the zodiac signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn, while the Air element zodiac signs are Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius.
History Of Zodiac Emojis
All 12 zodiac emojis first came about as computer characters made by modern-day programmers in 1993. Years later, in 2015, zodiac emojis got a modern upgrade and were included in Emoji Version 1.0, the first release of emoji documentation from Unicode. Having zodiac emojis be a part of this iconic batch shows how much importance the emoji world places on astrology.
Let’s take a look at these zodiac emojis, one by one. Included in this refresher are descriptions of personality traits of people under each sign, to help you with your interactions.
Make way for Aries men and women, the pioneers of the zodiac! A typical Aries is a pioneer who encourages others by own eagerness. They are often idealists who defend their thoughts aloud.
In the virtual world, Aries’ persona comes alive via the ♈ Aries emoji. The Aries emoji is basically the emoji counterpart of the Aries sign of the horoscope. It can appear in everything and anything related to the sign Aries—Aries individuals, Aries predictions, or Aries horoscopes.
The Aries sign shows a vertical line with a pair of horn-like curved lines at the top. Did you know there’s more to the meaning of Aries than just that pair of lines? Those curved lines represent Aries’ animal symbol, the charging ram, an animal always ready for a fight or a challenge at any moment. The Aries sign is the first of the 12 zodiac signs, and Aries individuals are born between March 21st and April 21st.
Aries’ connection to the ram is probably where individuals born under the Aries sign get their feisty nature! At their core, Aries people do what they want, and do things their way. Most of the time they leap into the world with zeal, and with zero reservation. It is one of their most commendable qualities, but also what causes them a great deal of pain and grief.
Make your Taurus-related posts more fascinating with the ♉ Taurus emoji! This emoji represents the Taurus astrological sign in the Zodiac. The emoji shows an image of a square, with a bull glyph inside of it. The glyph consists of a circle with two horns, set against a purple background. It complements Taurus’ symbol, the bull, along with Taurus’ reputation as the gentle bull of the zodiac.
The Taurus emoji is generally used to describe Taureans. Other than that, the symbol is shared in articles, posts, and reposts, referring to the sign of Taurus. If you’re speaking of the bull as a spirit animal, you may use the Taurus emoji in your post, too.
Taurus is the second of the 12 astrological signs, and is represented by the bull constellation. People who are born between April 21 and May 21 belong to this sign. They are called Taureans.
The Taurus personality traits include steadfastness and practicality, as well as having a patient and kind nature. They are great friends, love to work hard at their chosen professions, and can be depended upon in a tight spot. Taurus’ negative traits include being a procrastinator, which makes it hard for them to achieve work-life balance. Taurus individuals aren’t so emotional, too. They don’t open up to many people, especially not right away so they only have a few close relationships.
Get deep into the psyche of all the Geminis in your life, enhance all your Gemini-related posts with the ♊ Gemini emoji! The Gemini emoji consists of a pair of short vertical lines bound together by two curves, one placed at the top, the other at the bottom. It appears in white, against a purple background.
This emoji is commonly used to represent people with the Gemini zodiac sign, or to describe the duality in a given situation or dual-natured scenario. Expect it to appear in astrological content revolving around the sign of Gemini, too.
The Gemini sign is the third astrological sign in the zodiac. People born between May 21 and June 21 are under this sign. Gemini is represented by the twins, Castor and Pollux, known as the Dioscuri in Greek mythology.
If you look a little deeper into what being Gemini is all about, you’re going to find a complex group of people with diverse, contrasting personality traits. While most zodiac signs have one very prominent trait, Geminis can be decisive and stubborn one day, then suddenly be quite wishy-washy the day after. On a more positive note, Gemini individuals easily connect with a lot of diverse people. They are great jokers with an awesome sense of humor, too.
Feel right at home with the mother of zodiac signs, Cancer. The ♋ Cancer emoji shows two horizontal convex lines with small circles on opposite sides. The lines and circles form a horizontal “69,” representing the astrological sign Cancer.
Expect the Cancer emoji to appear in posts or articles relating to astrology, horoscopes, Cancerians, or the months of June and July, which Cancer rules over.
Those born under this horoscope sign take great pleasure in the comforts of home and family. If you were born between June 22 and July 22, you probably can relate. Cancer’s official animal symbol is the crab.
Those born under the astrological sign of Cancer are like Oreos, hard on the outside, but sweet and soft on the inside. It may take some time for Cancerians to warm up to you, but when they do, they can be quite thoughtful and faithful. On an off day, you better watch out though, because they tend to be moody, suspicious, and overemotional, as well.
Hear Leo, the lion of the astrology world, roar! The ♌ Leo emoji is mostly used to refer to Leo, the fifth zodiac sign. It shows a purple square with the symbol of Leo in the center. People who are Leos often use this to inform others of their zodiac sign. Netizens also share it to emphasize a person’s characteristics that align with those of Leo signs. Sometimes the symbol appears with the 🦁 Lion emoji for a bit of flair.
The Leo symbol consists of an inverse-S with a small circle on the left end. Leo’s animal symbol is the undisputed king of the jungle, the lion. It is the fifth sign of the zodiac, and represents those born between July 22 to August 22.
Like the lion that symbolizes them, Leos are strong, brave, and ready to dominate whatever they set out to do. When Leos set a goal for themselves, they pursue it with zeal. If a Leo has their heart set on something, everyone else should get out of their way! Leos love to be the center of attention, and often get jealous when the attention of other people shifts to someone else.
Express your feminine side, with the Virgo sign! Expect the ♍ Virgo emoji to pop up more than usual between those dates since that is the time when Virgos celebrate their birthdays!
This emoji frequently appears in discussions related to the Virgo zodiac sign. It is often used to describe a person who is a Virgo, or to talk about people who possess Virgo personality traits. It can be used to represent a virgin, or to signify virginity, too.
The Virgo symbol shows an m-shape with a ribbon type of loop at the edge of the ending stroke. The mascot for Virgo is a virgin maiden, carrying an ear of wheat. Virgo dates are between August 23 and September 22, which means, individuals born between these dates have Virgo as their sign because that is where the sun was at your date of birth.
Most Virgos are sensible, practical, and loyal. But they are also huge perfectionists! Virgos strive to be perfect, to have their homes and work perfect, they even want the people in their lives to be perfect. Sometimes they come off picky and critical, however, their ‘attention to detail’ is for a reason: they love to help others and want to give them only the best.
Balance things out with Libra, the seventh sign of the zodiac. The ♎ Libra emoji shows the Greek character omega written in white, set against a purple background. A horizontal line is parallelly placed beneath it.
The Libra emoji is often used to mark a person, or a group of people, born under this sign. It’s widely used to emphasize Libra-related news, horoscopes, posts, and reposts, as well. The emoji usually appears in posts about the law, equality, and balance, too.
The official symbol of the seventh sign of the zodiac is a pair of scales in perfect equilibrium. In the symbol, Themis, Titan goddess of divine law and order, is holding the scales. A person born between September 23rd and October 22 is a Libra.
Libra’s role in life is to balance. They live for balance and harmony in all things, from personal love lives to business and careers. When people have problems, they come to Libras. Libras help other people see both sides of the story. Be that as it may, if there’s one thing to criticize about Libras it would be their indecisiveness. Libras do not like being stuck in a tough spot when they need to make a decision.
The ♏ Scorpio emoji appears in posts and discussions relating to individuals born under the sign of Scorpio. Netizens typing out some truths about the Scorpio zodiac in general, often add this symbol to their content. It’s also used to talk about someone with Scorpio’s typical traits of character.
Beware of the sting coming from this sign! And by this sign, we mean Scorpio, the eighth zodiac sign, represented by the scorpion symbol. Scorpions are eight-legged arachnids with stings that can cause severe pain! If your birthday falls between October 23 to November 21, you are a Scorpio.
The Scorpio symbol is a white line shaped like the letter M in a cursive font, with a tail that becomes an arrow when it reaches the bottom right corner.
Studies on astrology claim Scorpio is one of the most misunderstood of the zodiac signs. One of the reasons could be because they can be very distrustful and jealous of other people. However, they also have lots of positive qualities that make them great friends and successful people overall, like being faithful and resourceful.
Here comes the archer! The ♐ Sagittarius emoji is often used to refer to Sagittarius men and women, or to describe people with popular Sagittarius traits. Others use this emoji to refer to archers or archery.
The zodiac sign Sagittarius is represented by a centaur carrying a bow and arrow. If you were born between November 22 to December 21, you have Sagittarius as your sun sign.
The Sagittarius symbol displays a single arrow, with the pointed end pointing to the upper right. There is a line in the middle of the arrow. This is also the design for the symbol of Sagittarius, the ninth astrological sign.
Independent and strong-willed, the Sagittarius personalities are all about going off the beaten path. They are natural explorers and enjoy solo travel and exploration. A bad habit they have is being way too blunt. They also often prioritize their own needs over those of others. Since they’re so used to doing things on their own, Sagittarians need to realize some important things can be done faster in groups.
The ♑ Capricorn emoji is made of a simple glyph encased in a box. This glyph is a colored recreation of the Capricorn astrological sign. It consists of a letter N, written in white, designed with a fancy reverse loop at the bottom.
The Capricorn emoji is okay for single use, or as a stand alone response. Most of the time, it refers to male and female Capricorns, or to describe people with Capricorn-like qualities. For example, if someone you know is responsible and reliable with a sound sense of foundation, use the Capricorn emoji to refer to them.
Out of all the astrology symbols, Capricorn is one of the most unique, it’s a picture of a sea goat, a creature with the tail of a fish, and the hoof of a goat. Based on stories from astrologers, the sea goat sign came from the story of Greek God Pan, a half-man, half-goat who jumped into a river to run away from a beast. Half his body became a fish’s tail. Wondering if you are a Capricorn? Men and women born between December 22 to January 19 belong to this sign.
Capricorn men and women are usually ambitious, with a deep sense of purpose, and great faith in their own ability. Most of them are high-minded and mentally strong, so strong, they believe showing emotions is a sign of weakness. Capricorns, like everyone else, feel emotions, but they bottle them up, making them appear aloof and distant to others.
Enter the Age of Aquarius! The ♒️ Aquarius emoji is used to refer to the sign Aquarius. Senders use it to identify themselves as part of this sign, or to refer to someone who is an Aquarius. It appears in informative posts and personal observations about Aquarians. Posts with mythical quotes about air mostly have the Aquarius emoji in them as well.
Aquarius is the 11th sign of the zodiac. Its symbolic emblem is the water bearer, who kneels and pours out his offering of water in a humble act of service. The Aquarius symbol shows two white, short zigzag lines of equal length and size. These lines are horizontal and parallel to one another. Individuals born between January 20th and February 19th belong to this sign.
Aquarians are trendsetters of the zodiac. They’re so forward thinking, can you believe they instinctively have a sense of what’s going to be a hit, and what’s going to flop? This mindset allows them to be revolutionaries and visionaries. Born rebels, they go against the grain while waiting for everyone else to catch up. Be that as it may, because they have such a strong mind, you’d be hard pressed to get individuals this fixed sign to change its mind. Aquarians don’t like it when people tell them what to do.
Take a dip in the ocean with Pisces! The ♓ Pisces emoji consists of two white concave lines opposite of each other. A horizontal line is in the middle of the two lines.
This emoji generally represents the Pisces zodiac sign. It’s also used to refer to males and females born under the Pisces sign, and to describe individuals with Pisces-related traits. From time to time, the emoji may appear in content revolving around fishes or bodies of water.
Pisces is the Latin word for “fish, fishes,” and its astrological symbol depicts two fish tied together, swimming in opposite directions. All men (and women) born between the dates of February 20 and March 20 fall under the Pisces sign. It is the 12th and final symbol of the zodiac calendar.
Pisces are wonderful people, with many great traits and characteristics that make them stick out from the rest of the pack. They are easygoing, and can adapt to most circumstances. Moreover, a Pisces man or woman is rarely lonely when they are by themselves, the active imagination they are born with keeps them busy. Some of the negative attributes of Pisceans include being sensitive and moody.
Zodiac Emoji Combinations
There’s something so satisfying about producing emoji combinations that put across your point perfectly. Of course, it depends on context, too. You can’t just put random emojis together and expect your audience to immediately get what you are saying! Some emojis work best as standalone. However, there are some that shine in a different way when grouped along with other symbols.
Which group do zodiac emojis belong to? Users place two or more zodiac emojis one after the other when they are doing sign pairings. Sign pairings reveal to someone how they’re likely to relate to someone else based on their zodiac sign. For instance, couples with the same sign match well, because they share similar traits. Sadly, there are certain matches in astrology that are considered incompatible according to astrologers.
Compatibility And Incompatibility
For example, it might be hard for an Aries and a Capricorn to get along. Aries are adventurous and freedom-loving, whereas Cancerians are extremely possessive in nature. This match never works as Aries never gets space and freedom to follow their hobbies from a Cancerian.
Therefore if you’d like to talk about that, you can put the respective zodiac emojis, namely the Aries emoji and the Capricorn emoji, one after the other, in your social media post, article, email, or online conversation.
There you have it, that’s the end of our zodiac emojis analysis and overview. As so clearly seen, learning about astrology, and applying it to one’s content connects far deeper than just simply sharing sign emojis. You need to know what the emoji stands for, how it relates to people, and how it can be best used.
In the astrology world, everything has a special meaning and purpose, from the zodiac symbols that represent the constellations in the sky, to the forecasting of earthly and human events through the observation and interpretation of the fixed stars, the Sun, the Moon, and the planets.
If you’d like to go deeper than just discussing another person’s astrological sign, it would be quite beneficial to do so. While astrology is by no means science as we define the sciences today, in many ways, it offers comfort, faith, and a deeper understanding of the world we live in. By learning about it, we can become better versions of ourselves.
If you’d like to add to your knowledge about astrology, there are tons of videos, blogs, and articles online to help you on your journey. Be reminded though, that not all information on the Internet is true. Find credible sources. Just because something looks like a fact, it doesn’t mean it is. When it comes to zodiac emojis, Emojiguide is a trusted site, of course. There are many others out there. Good luck!
