What if the 12 zodiac signs were bold Indian Apsaras?
Another personal project in which I’ve experimented with a concept where the 12 zodiac signs merge with the concept of Apsaras and the sassy 21st century brown woman.
Aries have zero tolerance for bullshit. They’re loving and nurturing to a fault, but do not tolerate insecurities and jealousy. An Aries closes chapters quickly. They have low tolerance and a short temper, so don’t fucking annoy them. Aries people are talkative and vibrant and having an Aries around is never dull. They’re born leaders and love a challenge. Balance is never in their book and it’s all or nothing.
A Taurus is the best representation of growth and development in the whole of the Zodiac. They are constantly concerned with making everything around them pleasurable and lovely to look at. They are deeply material, and their happiness relies on possessions and security in their lifestyle. They have the ability to map out, strategize, and solve problems or implement plans. However, they are known to procrastinate, because they do not always need to be in action. Taureans can be considered quite selfish due to their stubbornness and their strong beliefs. They always protect their own interests above anything else, as to ensure their comfort. However, they are highly intuitive, and can be people pleasers because of that. They take it to heart when they see people who need a compassionate hand, and will always live for the people they care about.
Geminis are well known for their dual nature and find it hard to have an opinion about a certain topic because they are very good at seeing and understanding both sides of any situation. Geminis also love to talk and are usually the life of the party. They are lively and energetic as well as versatile and intellectual. Their minds are always working, which often results in them telling people what they are thinking. Their wit and humour attract people and they have a natural curiosity of all that is around them. Geminis are most unhappy when stuck in what they feel is a rut. Because they are such good communicators, they are frequently sought out by those seeking advice. However, because Geminis are so talkative, some may fear they are not able to keep secrets they are told in confidence.Geminis may be the true “Jack of all trades, master of none” because of their short attention spans.
Those born under the zodiac sign Cancer are deeply loving people. They are considered one of the most nurturing signs of the zodiac.Their love of security leads them to take friendships and relationships very seriously. They are compassionate and almost unconditional in the love that they give to those in their lives. But, Cancers tend to be quite needy in terms of affection. This can lead to the being clingy and overbearing, and can also lead to some dishonesty. They have a rather strong fear of abandonment, and they can go to extremes to avoid being left alone. They can also have issues letting go of the past. Being deeply sensitive, they forgive, but they never forget. Suffering from long ago leaves them with a scar. They can linger and return to that scar time and time again, remembering that pain and reopening the wound. Anything that is hurtful, insulting, or just reminds them of their insecurities tend to push them back into their shell again. They are sometimes also quite moody – and work hard to avoid letting others know just how sensitive they are. They often have a thick armor to penetrate before revealing their true feelings, all in order to protect themselves.
Bold, intelligent, warm, and courageous, fire sign Leo is a natural leader of the Zodiac, ready to blaze a trail, vanquish injustice, and make a name for themselves along the way. A natural leader, Leo’s very presence inspires others to be the best they can be. Blessed with high self-esteem, Lions know that they possess enviable traits—and they’re proud of them. They don’t believe in false modesty and will be the first to praise themselves for a job well done. But Leo isn’t self-aggrandizing or unwilling to roll up those sleeves and do the work: this sign knows that in order to be respected and admired, he or she needs to put in the effort worthy of a leader.
Virgos are very supportive of the people in their lives and are often the first ones to give even the people they don’t know, the benefit of the doubt. They have a need to over analyze situations and hold a very critical eye on themselves along with everyone else in their life. Their critical eye is the reason behind their easy frustration and sometimes very short temper. Virgos are unique in their own essence, and they will never do anything half-assed. Their modesty and humility is what draws people to them, ultimately uncovering the beauty that is the Virgo. Once you learn the ways of a Virgo, you learn to love a Virgo exactly how they want to be loved.
Libras in constant search of peace, fairness and balance. They are often considered the nicest, most charming people in the world, and they are a favorite of almost everyone they meet. They crave partnership and hate being alone for long periods of time. Libra traits include a love of calm environments and a natural graciousness. Libra’s easy going peaceful nature make them vulnerable too giving too much of themselves. Though not easily swayed by emotions, they are prone to letting others change their thinking and can waver when it comes to keeping a promise.
Scorpios are strong leaders and have very intense personalities. Scorpios are very determined and thanks to their devotion, they always see things through to the end. Their powerful ideas and energy mean they are capable of success on a large scale. Due to their courageous nature, Scorpios make great friends and team players. If only they could learn to be less secretive and more vocal about their feelings, they’d conquer the world. They can be obsessive, possessive, jealous, secretive and vengeful. Many will talk a big game about their world domination plans At times, Scorpios can be manipulative, working behind-the-scenes in their favor. But they can also be extremely loyal and protective of their loved ones.
Independent and strong-willed, Sagittarius personalities are all about going off the beaten path. Sagittarius isn’t afraid to step away from the pack, and is a natural born leader who goes after what she wants, regardless of what other people think. Sagittarius is a born adventurer, and loves solo travel and exploration. Sagittarius also loves exploring the inner workings of their minds, and love stretching their horizons through a good book or movie. Sagittarius can sometimes be far too blunt, and put their own needs above others. Sags don’t need other people’s approval, opinions, or advice. A Sag loves hanging out with herself, and feels like doing things solo can only help her connect more to her deepest self.
Driven as they are, Capricorns are rarely idle. They have faith in themselves more than in other people and realise if something is going to happen, it is going to be because of their doing. Many see this trait as cold, but Capricorns are merely self-sufficient people. Because they realise time is precious, they are great organisers and capable of paying thorough attention to detail. Their desire for fame and success, combined with their independent nature and natural inhibition, Capricorns tend to be the loners of the zodiac. Many Capricorns have tunnel vision when it comes to their goals. They disregard everything else – family, friends, even their own emotions – while in pursuit of their goal. They know they have what it takes to complete the job, so the “I don’t need you” attitude often turns others off. But despite their aspirations, they are also very grounded and practical people. Capricorns are also patient and willing to wait for what they want. Despite their intense focus on their goals, they can be very witty. They are cautious when making decisions, especially decisions that involve money.
Aquarians relish in their unconventional ways. Their unusual thoughts lead them to think “outside of the box” and therefore, they are often seen as great thinkers. They are always looking for a new way to do something. This helps them avoid one of their greatest enemies – boredom. The combination of their creative attributes, original thoughts, kindness, and love of people makes them perfect leaders. However, while they will take your opinion of something into consideration, they can be stubborn in their opinions. They can become impatient with those who don’t see their point of view and disagree with them. They are fiercely independent and this can make them seem cold, detached, and impersonal at times. They embrace their eccentric ideas so much that they can be viewed as rebellious and unpredictable.
Pisces love to dream. They are very creative and artistic people and their imagination often runs wild. In fact, they may have a problem at times distinguishing fantasy from reality. They tend to go with their emotions and instincts rather than their rational and intellect. Pisces are very compassionate towards others. They have a sense that seems to let them get inside another’s skin to understand how they are feeling. However, they get so into other people’s problems, they often lose strength they need themselves. Being so empathetic, it is often hard for a Pisces to turn down someone they think is in need of their help. They may find their self-sacrificing ways and caring nature is often taken advantage of by others. Because they often live in a dream world, they may be impractical and lazy. They may lack confidence in themselves at times and that leads them to be loners.
