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.


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.


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.



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.


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.



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.

Intense. Passionate. Perceptive. Observant. Willful. Powerful. Self-reliant. Magnetic. Protective. Resourceful. Brave. Loyal. Protective. Before the scorpion was associated to Scorpio, the EAGLE was the secondary animal to be associated with this sign.

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.

Ambitious. Organized. Realistic. High-standards. Patient. Efficient. Goal-oriented. Hard-working. Steadfast. Strong-willed. Fearless. The VULTURE and Capricorn have a lot in common, especially since both have a bad reputation.

Aquarius zodiac astrology sign glyph symbol

Original. Inventive. Eccentric. Observant. Communicative. Idealistic. Independent. Altruistic. Candid. Impartial. Generous. Classically, seabirds were associated to Aquarius but the PELICAN seems like the ideal companion.

Pisces zodiac astrology sign glyph symbol

Selfless. Compassionate. Imaginative. Creative. Artistic. Sensitive. Emotional. Intuitive. Trusting. Kind. Caring. Helpful. Easy-going. Being a true denizen of the sea, the PENGUIN seems a natural choice.
