western zodic | sketches

i caught a wild hair around midnight last night, and decided it'd be a good idea to try my hand at drawing each of the western zodiacs!

in learning about each of their characteristics, i tried to give them all different faces and show their different personalities

lol i don't know if it worked out, D: but i tried



ARIES
[ the ram ]
(
March 21 to April 20):
"The young ram is adventurous, ambitious, impulsive, enthusiastic and full of energy. The Ari is a pioneer both in thought and action, very open to new ideas and a lover of freedom.
"




TAURUS
[the bull]
(April 21 to May 21 )
"The characteristics of taurus are solidity, practicality, extreme determination and strength of will - no one will ever drive them, but they will willingly and loyally follow a leader they trust. They have a strong aesthetic taste, enjoying art, for which they may have a talent, beauty (recoiling from anything sordid or ugly) and music."




GEMINI
[ the twins ]
( May 22 to June 21 )
"Gemini, the sign of the Twins, is dual-natured, elusive, complex and contradictory. On the one hand it produces the virtue of versatility, and on the other the vices of two-facedness and flightiness. Most Gemini have a keen, intuitive, sometimes brilliant intelligence and they love cerebral challenges."




CANCER
[ the crab ]

(June 22 to July 22 )
"The Cancerian character is the least clear-cut of all those associated with the signs of the zodiac. It can range from the timid, dull, shy and withdrawn to the most brilliant, and famous Cancerians are to be found through the whole range of human activity."

* i completely wish i did a better job on Cancer. lol it looks like such a random sketch.





LEO
[ the lion ]

( July 23 to August 22
)
"The Leo type is the most dominant, spontaneously creative and extrovert of all the zodiacal characters. In grandeur of manner, splendor of bearing and magnanimity of personality, they are the monarch's among humans as the lion is king of beasts. "






VIRGO
[ the virgin ]

( August 23 to September 23
)
"Virgo is the only zodiacal sign represented by a female. It is sometimes thought of as a potentially creative girl, delicately lovely. They are usually observant, shrewd, critically inclined, judicious, patient, practical supporters of the status quo, and tend toward conservatism in all departments of life."

*Virgo also looks random rofl - and spacey




LIBRA
[ the scales ]

(September 24 to October 23
)
"Librans are sensitive to the needs of others and have the gift, sometimes to an almost psychic extent, of understanding the emotional needs of their companions and meeting them with their own innate optimism - they are the kind of people of whom it is said, "They always make you feel better for having been with them."


*those hands were hard! :'(





SCORPIO
[ the scorpion ]

(October 24 to November 22 )
"Scorpios are the most intense, profound, powerful characters in the zodiac. Even when they appear self-controlled and calm there is a seething intensity of emotional energy under the placid exterior. They are fortunate in that their strong reasoning powers are tempered with imagination and intuition, and these gifts, together with critical perception and analytical capacity, can enable the Scorpions to penetrate to profundities beyond the average."






SAGITTARIUS
[ the archer ]

( November 23 to December 21)
"Sagittarians have a positive outlook on life, are full of enterprise, energy, versatility, adventurousness and eagerness to extend experience beyond the physically familiar. They enjoy travelling and exploration, the more so because their minds are constantly open to new dimensions of thought. They are basically ambitious and optimistic, and continue to be so even when their hopes are dashed."






CAPRICORN
[ the goat ]
( December 22 to January 20 )
"The sign Capricorn is one of the most stable and (mostly) serious of the zodiacal types. These independent, rocklike characters have many sterling qualities. They are normally confident, strong willed and calm. These hardworking, unemotional, shrewd, practical, responsible, persevering, and cautious to the extreme persons, are capable of persisting for as long as is necessary to accomplish a goal they have set for themselves."

*i think Capricorn's angryface is the result of me being too hard on myself - me being a capricorn and all. (And i'm feeling like i actually just drew myself for this sketch? rofl) Whenever i read about my sign on the interwebs, there are very little friendly things to be said about us lol



AQUARIUS
[ the water carrier ]
(January 21 to February 19)

"Aquarians basically possess strong and attractive personalities. They fall into two principle types: one shy, sensitive, gentle and patient; the other exuberant, lively and exhibitionist, sometimes hiding the considerable depths of their character under a cloak of frivolity.
"




PISCES
[ the fishes ]
( Febuary 20 to March 20 )
"Pisceans possess a gentle, patient, malleable nature. They have many generous qualities and are friendly, good natured, kind and compassionate, sensitive to the feelings of those around them, and respond with the utmost sympathy and tact to any suffering they encounter. They are deservedly popular with all kinds of people, partly because their easygoing, affectionate, submissive natures offer no threat or challenge to stronger and more exuberant characters."

You're totally right; all I hear about capricorns is that we hate fun and have no emotion.
