What Your Egyptian Zodiac Sign Says About Your Life
By now, we’re all familiar with the “normal” zodiac signs. But did you know that there are such things called Egyptian zodiac signs? They’re practically the same. It still has 12 signs and each of them was given a period of time to “rule”. If you were born in that duration, then you were given that sign.
But the main difference between the two is that while the Zodiac is more popular, it has many flaws in its predictions, sometimes relying on general statements that would apply to anyone to “prove” its fortune-telling capabilities. The Egyptians, however, identified the signs with a scientific approach.
They were known for their expertise in the field of astronomy and cosmology, as well as the esoteric. With the knowledge they had gathered during their entire civilization, you can bet they knew what they were talking about.
Egyptians had multiple gods, and each of these gods represents a sign. If you were born during a particular god’s reign, then you would seek help or favor to that god.
Unlike the regular Zodiac, the Egyptian version is split into weeks instead of months, with each sign repeating more than once in a year (contrary to the current Zodiac, which can only last a set period of time once per annum)
Here are the 12 signs, and how they can affect your life:
(January 1-7, June 19-28, September 1-7, November 18-26)
Being the first of the signs during the normal year, it comes as no surprise that this sign symbolizes rebirth. With this renewal of life comes a passion that drives people born into these periods to pursue their life goals with an intensity that rivals those born under the Aries sign. But unlike the latter, they avoid conflicts if they can, and not actively look for fights.
Compatible with: Set and Amon-ra
(January 8-21, February 1-11)
This is the Egyptian version of the Taurus sign. But, while the Taurus and Amon-ra signs share the same characteristic of being natural born leaders, Amon-ra does not have the same stubbornness that a Taurus does. If you fall under Amon-ra’s rule, then you are born with a contagious motivation that can change the lives of the people around you.
Compatible with: Nile and Horus
(January 21-31, September 8-22)
People born under the sign of Mut have a nurturing side to them that comes naturally. They have a sense of caring and compassion that cannot be rivaled by other signs. Unlike Gemini, who shares the same qualities, people with the sign of Mut are rational and analyze every decision. With a healthy balance of empathy and logical thinking, they are naturals at professions that seek balance, such as law, counseling and even teaching.
Compatible with: Thor and Amon-Ra
(February 12-19, August 20-31)
The typical Zodiac’s Cancer and Geb both share the quality of intuition. Not only do you trust your gut wholeheartedly, but you are also born with a strong sense of empathy, often caring about what happens to people that are not even closely related to you. As such, world events that cause strife also give you problems, and you naturally want to help those who need it.
Compatible with: Horus and Set
(March 1-10, November 27-December 18)
Being the sign of twins, Gemini shares another similarity to Osiris. But one unique trait Osiris has is that it also shares characteristics of the sign Leo. The Leo side of you will be confident and boisterous, leaping towards every challenge. But the Gemini side will be timid and shy, often shirking away from responsibilities for fear of failing. Even though you may have contradictory feelings, the ability to rise back up after every failure is strong with the people born under the Osiris sign.
Compatible with: Isis and Thoth
(March 11-31, October 18-29, December 19-31)
There’s not much difference between the Egyptian sign of Isis and the Tropical Zodiac sign of Virgo. Both are known for their straightforwardness and being frank about their thoughts. You’ll skip straight to the point most of the time. But one thing people born under the reign of Isis that Virgoans don’t have is an energetic approach to life.
Compatible with: Thoth and Osiris
(April 1-19, November 8-17)
People born under the period of Thoth are blessed with excellent memory, often remembering most details of their lives. Sharing the romantic traits of Libra, you’ll prioritize seeking your other half most of your life. With your great wisdom and loving personality, you’ll become a trustworthy person to those around you.
Compatible with: Isis and Bastet
(April 20-May 7, August 12-19)
Being in the same period as Scorpio, you share the clarity of vision. You’ll know what you want and have no fear in pursuing it. But unlike Scorpio, you’ll have boundless optimism, which is very useful for when you run into trouble chasing your dreams. Don’t stray from the path that Horus has laid out for you. With his guidance comes an unforgiving punishment for disobedience.
Compatible with: Bastet and Geb
(May 8-27, June 29-July 13)
People born under the sign of Anubis seek solitude. They do this because they do their best thinking alone. Just like Sagittarius, your favorite places to frequent will be spaces where you can be alone with your thoughts.
Compatible with: Isis and Bastet
(May 28-June 18, September 28-October 2)
Set was a perfectionist, much like people born under the sign of Capricorn. As such, you’ll want things done a certain way. Aside from that however, you will have a need to travel, something that will stay with you for your whole life. That is because Set was the goddess of the ever changing weather of the desert. Combining these two, you’ll most likely want to turn the world into a perfect place.
Compatible with: Nile and Geb
(July 14-28, September 23-27, October 3-17)
People born under the sign of Bastet are ruled by intuition. They seek powers that can help them foresee their future. While common people avoid superstition due to fear, these kinds of people openly accept any form of “magic” to help them see to the future. This trait is similar to those who are born under Aquarius.
Compatible with: Horus and Sekhmet
(July 29-August 11, October 30-November 7)
Being the only Egyptian sign that does not share any traits with Pisces (which falls under the same duration), Sekhmet possesses natural charisma. You’ll find people gravitate towards you for your down-to-earth attitude and how you seek the fairest solution to any problem for everyone involved. People born under this sign will most likely end up in a position of power.
Compatible with: Bastet and Geb
