Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Your Zodiac Sign As A Greek God: Libra
Aphrodite 

Aphrodite is an ancient Greek goddess associated with love, beauty, pleasure, passion and procreation. She is identified with the planet Venus.

She could entice both gods and men into illicit affairs with her good looks and whispered sweet nothings. Aphrodite was portrayed as a beautiful woman accompanied by the winged and mischievous god of love, Eros. Many gods believed that Aphrodite’s beauty and charm could spark a war of the gods.

Zeus married Aphrodite to Hephaestus, the god of blacksmiths who was very ugly and deformed. However, despite her marriage to Hephaestus, Aphrodite had many lovers, both gods and men.

Aphrodite was especially worshipped on cyprus – a location which hints at her eastern origins as a fertility goddess.

The positive and negative traits of Libra:
Positive Traits: Sweet, Romantic, Charming, Fair and Understanding

Libras are charming, lovable, romantic, graceful, compassionate and fair, much like Aphrodite. This goddess was known to be quite vain which is also one of Libra’s worst traits. Even though these people are lovable and charming, they also have trouble finding the right companion in life, just like the goddess of beauty.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)

Your Zodiac Sign As A Greek God: Scorpio
Hades and his dog Cerberus

Hades is the god of the dead and the king of the underworld, with which his name became synonymous. He was the eldest son of Cronus and Rhea.

He obtained his wife and queen, Persephone, through abduction at the behest of Zeus. Hades ruled the dead, assisted by others over whom he had complete authority. The House of Hades was described as full of “guests,” though he rarely left the Underworld. 

He cared little about what happened in the world above, as his primary attention was ensuring none of his subjects ever left. His wrath was equally terrible for anyone who tried to cheat death or otherwise crossed him.

“Hades was the only greek god not to reside on mount olympus, dwelling instead in a dark palace beneath the earth.”

The positive and negative traits of Scorpio:
Positive Traits: Focused, Brave, Loyal, Faithful and Ambitious.
Negative Traits: Jealous, Possessive, Secretive, Dominating, Resentful.

He was often misunderstood just like Scorpio, and was the only god who never cheated on his bride, showing loyalty and commitment, which are some of well known Scorpio traits.

Just like Scorpio, Hades was intense, trustworthy, passionate, and caring, but he was also extremely protective, possessive and had no mercy for those who tried to hurt his loved ones.

He will bewilder you with his twin Scorpio traits of passion and reason. He is master of both-intellect and emotions rule him equally.”

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)

For stealing the secret of fire and giving it to mankind, Zeus bound Prometheus and had an eagle eat out his liver each new day, only to have the liver grow back each night – Berlin 2010

Prometheus, God Of Forethought And Mankind. Prometheus was a demigod, the son of the Titan Iapetus and Clymene or Asia (daughters of Oceanus). According to Lucian, Prometheus, with the help of the goddess Athena, created the first man (Gold Gender) from fire and clay and with a similar form to that of the gods.  He famously gave the human race the gift of fire and the skill of metalwork, an action for which he was punished by Zeus.

“Prometheus Raided the Workshop of Hephaistos and Athena on Mt. Olympus and Stole Fire; He Then Gave the Valuable Gift to Mankind.”

The positive and negative traits of Aquarius:
Positive Traits: Open-Minded, Humanitarian, Creative, Free Spirited and Intellectual
Negative Traits: Impulsive, Unpredictable, Inconsistent, Extremist and Stubborn

Aquarius is a humanitarian who is not afraid to stand up for human rights, as Prometheus also loved humanity more than the Olympian gods. Prometheus refused to support the monarchy and was a rebel, like the ingenious Aquarius who rebels against authority and enjoys breaking the rules.

“An Aquarian man doesn’t want to reveal his true feelings, in spite of his favorite pastime of penetrating the feelings of others. His own reactions and motives are complex.”

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Your Zodiac Sign As A Greek God: Pisces

Poseidon the God of the sea and rivers, creator of storms and floods, and the bringer of earthquakes and destruction.  He majestically held the sign of his reign, the Trident, which gave him the power both to create storms and calm the waters.

Poseidon was the second son of the Titans Cronus and Rhea. In Greek art, Poseidon rides a chariot that was pulled by a hippocampus or by horses that could ride on the sea. He was associated with dolphins and three-pronged fish spears (tridents). He lived in a palace on the ocean floor, made of coral and gems.

“Alexander the Great paused at the Syrian seashore, invoking Poseidon the sea-god, for whom he ordered a four-horse chariot to be cast into the waves “

The positive and negative traits of Pisces:
Positive Traits: Empathetic, Artistic, Emotional, Selfless and Natural Healers
Negative Traits: Moody, Negative, Lazy, Idealistic and Escapists

As the ruler of the sea, Poseidon was the protector of all waters and sailors, but he was also worshipped as a fertility god. Poseidon was moody and unstable by nature, and Pisces who feel more than anyone else can also be somewhat moody and unstable at times. Those born under the sign of Pisces are very sensitive, highly intuitive.

Much like dreamy Pisces, Poseidon was a very unpredictable god and when angry, he was able to destroy everything that comes in his way.

“A Pisces man has no prejudices. He’ll never judge an Indian until he’s walked a few miles in his moccasins, or a nudist until he’s tried going barefoot. “
