Trying to recognize zodiac signs by appearance and outer expressions is one of the most difficult, if not impossible aspects of astrology. Appearance is a vague and changeable notion, and only with long years of intuitive experience and observations comes an actual "feel" for how strong zodiac energies tend to manifest. However, astrology does correlate physical appearance with certain influences from the zodiac signs and aspects of planets and angles. The descriptions below apply to generalized character types, in an outwardly fashion. They are not observations of just Sunsigns, Ascendants or Moonsigns etc., but rather all of these things: they try to recognize personalitites with strong influences from the sign in question. So how use this? Well, a Sun-sign Gemini may exhibit several of the traits ascribed to Gemini below - another one may not. Same thing with a Gemini Ascendant. The descriptions are likely to be more accurate if the person has several points in the horoscope associated with the sign. Those who have the Sun and Ascendant, or Sun and Moon in the same sign are usually standout examples, and great objects for the guesser. Trust your intuition.
