By: Sawyer Wood
Go on any dating profile or meet up with any new friend, and the zodiac will probably come up sooner rather than later. But if you’ve been left out of the astrological loop, decoding just what all the signs mean is probably a riddle you don’t know how to solve. Need some help? We’ve got your back! Here’s the zodiac A to Z. Read on to learn everything about the signs, which one you fall under, and discover what kind of Harper Crown charm will work best for yours.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
The first sign in the zodiac, Aries aren’t used to coming in second. Those who fall under this fire sign are remarkably competitive and ambitious － natural leaders who thrive when they’re sitting in the driver’s seat. High-stakes work? Dangerous situations? Scary life challenges? Aries has it all under control thanks to a wealth of self-determination and passionate, youthful that seemingly never runs out.
Our charm recommendation:22K Matte Gold Round Pendant. Boasting the Aries ram rather than just the basic sign and coming in a matte gold that’s sure to draw more than a few eyes, it’s the perfect pendant for the zodiac’s most confident and bold pioneers.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
As you’d expect from those symbolized by the mighty bull, Tauruses are often hard-headed and stubborn. However, they’re also some of the most practical, patient, and devoted folks you’ll find. Why? Because an Earth sign, they’re grounded and stable. Unlike some others, their heads aren’t in the clouds, they’re firmly fixed on the world around them, making them hard-working and true safety nets for everyone around them.
Our charm recommendation: 925 Sterling Silver Disc Charm. The fixed Taurus craves simplicity and reliability, and this charm readily meets those needs. Basic without being bland and pretty without being either flashy or overly delicate, it’s a great jewelry addition that won’t leave this sign feeling like a bull in a china shop!
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
When it comes to the zodiac, few are as curious and inquisitive as Gemini. They have an almost child-like wonder about the world around them, approaching it with an openness and willingness to learn that can make them willing to get to know just about anyone and everyone. They also have a flip-side to them, though, possessing a seriousness that grounds their easy sociability and restlessness and helps them stay airy without becoming flighty.
Our charm recommendation: Sterling Silver Constellation Pendant. Taking Gemini’s youthful wonder and oddly grounded quality into account, we highly recommend our silver constellation charm. Perfectly encapsulating their awe at nature, it also serves as a great reminder to let themselves peek their heads above the clouds once in a while!
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Cancer may be one of the most well-known signs on the list, but they also happen to be more difficult to pin down than the rest. Like their symbol of the crab, they have a hard shell separating them from the outside world which can make them seem unapproachable and unwelcoming. However, it’s just a way to protect themselves. Once you get to know them, Cancers are sensitive, emotional, and deeply caring people. Looking for a loyal friend or committed lover? Soft-hearted Cancer is an obvious choice.
Our charm recommendation: Matte Gold Circle Disc Charm. Cool on the outside but warm on the inside, Cancer is a complex sign. But with this circle disc’s warm tone and flat finish － and its durable construction but seemingly straightforward design － they’ve definitely met their charm match.
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Symbolized by the fearsome but majestic lion, Leo is all about power and appreciation. They, like Aries, are natural leaders who luxuriate in the spotlight, gaining confidence and satisfaction anytime they prove they’re the kings of this jungle. That might make them sound arrogant, yet there’s a lot more to Leo than the bravado. Tender-hearted, generous, and protective of those they care about, become a part of a Leo’s pride and they’ll make sure you have everything needed to reach your full potential together.
Our charm recommendation: 18K Gold Zodiac Sign Charm. Plated with shiny, high-quality gold and a completely different shape from our other zodiac charms, this pendant is a luxurious, stand-out choice for the lion who expects nothing less.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Just as you’d expect from those associated with the grounded Earth, Virgos never shy away from putting in the hours and the effort. They’re methodical and sharp as a tack, always the ones to craft solutions before others even realize there was a problem to solve. Faced with outcomes different than expected, self-doubt can take root in perfectionistic Virgo. However, they always bounce back, finding a way to create in even the most chaotic of environments.
Our charm recommendation: Sterling Silver Zodiac Sign Charm. Virgo likes consistency and simplicity, and that’s exactly what this pendant has to offer. With an earthy silver tone, detailed shape, and nice but non-flashy aesthetics, it’s an accessory that proves itself to be as cool and quiet as all the folks falling under this sign.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Some citizens of the zodiac adore stirring up attention. Meanwhile, loving Libra wants nothing more than peace － consistently the ones asking why we can’t all just get along. However, fairness and social equity are also at the top of their to-do lists, and sometimes that means ruffling a few feathers. Luckily, Libras are willing to do so for the right cause despite their penchant for conflict avoidance. And when they do? They’re bound to tip the scales in not just their favor, but in the direction that brings real justice to everyone involved.
Our charm recommendation:Sterling Silver Zodiac Symbol Charm. Since Libra loves balance and equality, this also seems like the most natural option for them. They’ll appreciate the charm’s symmetrical balance and likely find themselves gravitating to the silver color option as well due to its understated yet lovely shine.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Although a water sign, Scorpios oftentimes have a kind of gruffness and roughness that feels anything other than go-with-the-flow. This is just a byproduct of their intensity and fixed nature, though. Below all the bluster, Scorpios are enchanting, powerful people who bring transformation to any situation they get involved in. Complicated and secretive they may be, there’s no doubt a lot of passion and creative cunning after you break through Scorpio’s choppy waters.
Our charm recommendation: Round Zodiac Coin Charm. Showcasing the their scorpion symbol, this charm will become a fast favorite of tough, unyielding Scorpio. Available in three different finishes, this picky zodiac member doesn’t even have to settle with a choice outside their usual preference, letting them simply be themselves － no compromise required.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Fires can sometimes burn too bright or smoulder too low to ever bring any heat. Yet, Sagittarius manages to hit the right balance, letting their spark grow without becoming out of control. Their sense of humor helps, tempering their adventurous, enterprising spirits with something a little softer, guiding them to become more sojourner than aimless wanderer. Though at the core remains someone spontaneous, fun, and free － a bright energy that leaves others glowing, too.
Our charm recommendation: Astrological Zodiac Sign Charm. Out of all our pendants, this zodiac charm has just the right amount of shine, making it ideal for the bright but balanced Sagittarius. Silver or gold, they can’t go wrong letting it show off their sparkling personality to all who’re interested in taking a look.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Symbolized by the goat, Capricorn are known to butt heads with folks from time to time, too stiff to back down from a fight driven by opposite perspectives. Although, they’re more often very responsible, disciplined people, committed to craftsmanship, family, and tradition above all else. Also solid and serious with a desire for control, Capricorns make for excellent managers, ever the man (or woman!) with a plan.
Our charm recommendation: Sterling Silver Constellation Pendant. Since silver is a traditional jewelry color and a constellation print is the most direct, efficient way to symbolize their sign, all Capricorns － from the most buttoned-up to the more relaxed － should enjoy this accessory pick.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Aquarius’ element is air, but it’s much harder to tell than with its counterparts. Why? Because this air sign isn’t particularly flexible. Aquarius folks can be uncompromising and a little close-minded, firm in their perception of what’s right, what’s wrong, and how the world works. But on the flip side, they’re endearingly eccentric and idealistic deep thinkers who live every day to the fullest while encouraging us to do so as well. In the end, it all balances out.
Our charm recommendation: Shiny Gold Circle Disc Charm. There are many sides to an Aquarius. In many ways, they seem contradictory, yet they’re actually complimentary. Looking to fully embrace that? This disc charm is a good start; shiny yet simple, flat yet raised, but above all, always compelling and noticeable like Aquarius themselves.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Last but not least, compassionate Pisces is a water sign that’s more than willing to ride the most dangerous waves － at least, as long as it’s to help someone else who may be struggling with them. Empathy is their superpower and they fully embrace it, letting their intuition and gentleness guide them to give back wherever they can. This can cause them to have boundary issues, but when they learn to also take care of themselves, Pisces have an amazing potential to do good.
Our charm recommendation: 22K Shiny Gold Round Zodiac Coin Charm. Featuring a shiny gold finish that matches Pisces’ inner heart of gold and their fish symbol that sums up their quintessential water sign qualities, we couldn’t think of a better charm for these tireless, helpful water signs.
