Night Sky Observation 8- Astrological Signs

OK, so today it was snowing and there was a lot of clouds in general, so I couldn't observe any stars or the moon- well, the moon is supposed to be the new moon tomorrow, so it wouldn't have been visible anyway. Again, I don't have enough days to make up for this, so today I'm going to write about the 12 astrological signs instead.
They are the 12 segments of the Zodiac, and is supposed to influence people born under their time of rule (one month each), when they are rising at the eastern horizon of the Earth. They are associated with constellations (in western astrology), and is named after them and carry their traits. They each have a symbol, a ruling planet, a house (the characteristics of the ruling planets), and a classical element: Earth, Water, Air and Fire. Here are the 12 star signs:

Aries (The Ram)- the first star sign, from March 21- April 20th. Ruled by Mars, has the 1st house, and its element is fire. Based on the constellation Aries, and people born under Aries is supposed to be very energetic and spirited.
