Birds Of The Zodiac

For anyone who knows me, whether briefly or intimately, I’m a bird enthusiast. Being an amateur astrologer, I started pondering on which birds correlate with which Zodiac sign. After some research and cross analysis, I might have found a reasonable list of birds associated with certain Zodiac signs. I hope you enjoyed what I’ve conjured up.

 

 

Aries

Dynamic. Pioneering. Adventurous. Courageous. Dynamic. Independent. Fast. Competitive. Assertive. Passionate. Fiery. The valiant warrior. The impulsive hunter. The bird that comes to mind when I think of Aries would be the FALCON, specifically a Peregrine.

Taurus

Patient. Warm – hearted.  Affectionate. Artistic. Thorough. Stable. Dependable. Creative. Grounded. Possesses “earthly” beauty. A stable provider. A grounded, nurturing, “earth” mother.  The bird that comes to my mind when I think of Taurus is PHEASANT.

Gemini

Versatile. Adaptable. Eloquent. Talkative. Witty. Inquisitive. Garrulous. Verbose. The consummate communicator. Animated. Comical. The colorful entertainer. Come on, really? The bird that pops in my mind has long been associated with this sign – the PARROT.

Cancer

Emotional. Intuitive. Protective. Cautious. Hospitable. Comforting. Supportive. Sensitive. Kind. Caring. Maternal. The “home body”. The prudent architect. The vigilant mother. The SWALLOW seems like the perfect match to Cancer.

 

Leo

Proud. Confident. Magnanimous. Creative. Artistic. Theatrical. Radiant. Outgoing. Noble. Loyal.  Warm. Energetic. Regal. The ostentatious PEACOCK comes to my mind when I see Leo.

Pileated Woodpecker

Diligent. Fastidious. Neat. Orderly. Organized. Pragmatic. Efficient. Helpful. Humble. Nervous. Reliable. Industrious.  Seems that the WOODPECKER and Virgo have a lot in common.

Tactful. Diplomatic. Graceful. Elegant. Peaceful. Harmonious. Fair. Impartial. Kind. Gracious. Artistic. Creative. Beautiful. The placid and docile DOVE seems synonymous to Libra.

Optimistic. Positive.  Philosophical. Knowledgable. Adventurous. Independent. Adventurous. Enthusiastic. Sincere. Candid. Though not necessarily associated with this sign, I feel that the SECRETARYBIRD should be Sagittarius’ representative.
