Your Personality According to the Egyptian Zodiac
Ancient Egypt had its own astrological study, which included a completely different zodiac system. Eleven out of twelve of these signs are Egyptian gods and their personalities. Find out below what your Egyptian zodiac sign says about you.
Unlike Western astrology in which each sign happens once a year, Egyptian signs have between two and four time frames each year.
The Sign of The Nile
Dates: January 1-7, June 19-28, September 1-7, November 18-26
The Nile starts out on the new year and it is the only Egyptian zodiac sign that is not a god. The river Nile, however, is just as important as a deity, because it is the source of life itself for Egyptians.
Like the river, people born under the sign of the Nile are nurturing, supportive of others, giving, and calm. They are observant and well-communicative but prefer to stay quiet most of the time; they prefer peace, and avoiding conflict. While harmonious in nature, they are very passionate about life, and what is right for the world around them. This passion can drive them to constantly start new things. Their biggest downfall is letting their emotions carry them away from their main mission.
The Sign of Amon-Ra
Dates: January 8-21, February 1-11
Amon-Ra is one of the main deities in Egypt, a universal god who rules over creation, time, and the cosmos. He shines light where there is darkness, and awakens people.
People born under this sign are natural-born leaders. They are determined, optimistic, and humanitarian. They are great at making decisions for themselves and the community.
Their main obstacle may be their ego, which may prevent them from starting a family in order to avoid commitments.
The Sign of Mut
Dates: January 22-31, September 8-22
Mut is a fearless goddess, and Divine Mother. She is hopeful and protective of those she loves. She is a practical nurturer, and draws a lot of gifts from the energy of the water.
People born under Mut are great parents, loyal friends, and inspiring mentors. They can make great teachers and nurses. They also tend to go deep in their relationships, which is why they can get hurt so easily. This vulnerability can lead to depression, which is Mut’s main obstacle.
The Sign of Geb
Dates: February 12-29, August 20-31
Geb is the god of the Earth, which serves as a link between existence—here on Earth and the cosmos. Because of this powerful link, people born under this sign are likely more sensitive to any astrological events. They can be emotional and sensitive to any energies. Their main mission is to help heal the Earth and the environment.
They are also deeply compassionate towards others, which is why it is important for this sign to not let other people take advantage of them.
The Sign of Osiris
Dates: March 1-10, November 27-December 18
Osiris is the Egyptian god of the underworld, while also symbolizing rebirth. Those born under this sign often have two distinct personalities. One is strong with great leadership skills and charisma, the other is vulnerable and emotional. They are passionate and love starting new things. When they do they have high hopes for success and have a lot of energy to see any project through until completion.
Osiris sign’s main challenge is staying patient and calm, as they have a bit of a temper and get restless and frustrated easily. They also do not take criticism well.
The Sign of Isis
Dates: March 11-31, October 18-29, December 19-31
Isis is the daughter of the god of Earth Geb and the goddess of the Sky Nut. This gives her a unique set of magical abilities. She can heal people , cast spells, and even lead souls to the afterlife.
People born under this sign have a lot of energy, a great sense of humor, and a straight-forward nature. The latter can make them misunderstood by others. However, as long as they let others get to know them, this should not be an issue, as they are very loving and show their love for others easily.
The Sign of Thoth
Dates: April 1-19, November 8-17
Thoth is the Egyptian god of knowledge, communication, and wisdom. People born under the sign of Thoth use communication as their main gift in life to achieve success.
They are great at problem solving and coming up with creative ideas. They are also very loyal, which earns them strong friendships and stable relationships.
One challenge that can come up is letting bitterness take over when met with betrayal. Having extreme loyalty to others, Thoth people do not understand when a person leaves or turns on them, and their fantastic memory can prevent them from letting the hurt go.
The Sign of Horus
Dates: April 20-May 7, August 12-19
Egyptian god Horus protected the pharaoh and united the land. He is brave, charismatic, community-oriented, and possessing a lot of willpower to create change.
He is also loving, peaceful, and hardworking. All of these qualities are needed in order to build strong communities, which is what people born under this sign can do.
Horus’ challenges are being too stubborn and jealous in personal relationships. They need to feel secure and protected in their life to be truly happy.
The Sign of Anubis
Dates: May 8-27, June 29-July 13
Anubis is the guardian of the underworld, but he does not bring death, he is just there for the transition. He is very compassionate, and understanding of the darker side of life, he appreciates life and stays at peace in any situation.
Those born under this sign enjoy being alone, quiet, and spending time being introspective. Arts , writing, and any creative projects suit them well. They can be best described as introverts.
While usually calm, when they are not, their emotions can be intense, which is something that may come up in personal relationships.
The Sign of Seth
Dates: May 28-June 18, September 28-October 2
Seth is a god of chaos, but do not worry about it translating into your personal life. The symbolism of Seth is change and metamorphosis. People born under this sign will focus on their own soul searching and finding themselves—feeling whole. They are perfectionists, which can be a challenge. However, this can fuel a quest for knowledge, and knowledge makes them stronger and stronger.
They will also always look for more ways to be free, which can create tension at normal jobs or ordinary relationships. Seth people will be the happiest leading unconventional lifestyles that are full of constant change and excitement.
The Sign of Bastet
Dates: July 14-28, September 23-27, October 3-17
Bastet is the Egyptian cat goddess who protects women, seeks pleasures in life, and seeks peace. People born under this sign will do anything to prevent conflict, instead they are looking for harmony and are always ready to help others.
They are also mystical and have heightened psychic and intuitive abilities. While using these and other skills to support other people, it is important for the Bastet sign to tend to their own needs first.
The Sign of Sekhmet
Dates: July 29-August 11, October 30-November 7
The twelfth Egyptian zodiac sign is Sekhmet, the goddess whose name means “the powerful one.” She is both the warrior goddess and a healer. This sign may bring out two personalities in the same person. On one hand, they are free-spirited, on the other, strict perfectionists with good self-discipline. This sign is down to Earth, and has qualities to be a good leader.
Sekhmet’s main challenge is not to let their ego run their lives, which can lead to self-destructive behaviors. Instead, they need to seek balance in everything they do.
