Black Zodiac: Discover What Your Dark Sign Says About Your Dark Side

May 18, 2020

Before we dive into the Black Zodiac, I thought it would be good to give some concepts about the usual Zodiac we have heard about.

The Zodiac is a space in the sky around the path the Sun takes around, also known as Ecliptic, it is around 8 degrees south and/or north of it.

In astronomy and western astrology, the Zodiac is divided into 12 signs, each corresponding to approximately 30 degrees on this path.

These also correspond to the constellations Acquarius, Pisces, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn.

The Zodiac's History

This division of the Sun's path in 12 constellations originates as early as 1000 BC. Some constellations believe to have been discovered even earlier than that.

History registers that this took place in Babylon.

Babylonian astronomers initially assigned a corresponding sign to the each of the corresponding constellations around the Ecliptic, forming the first celestial coordinated map, if you will.

This has changed since the Babylonian times.

The Zodiac is registered across history among several cultures and civilisations.

Some authors and scholars have related the 12 tribes of Israel described in the Bible in the Old Testament with the 12 Zodiac Signs.

The Babylonian celestial maps started to be incorporated by the Romans and Greeks at around 400 BC. The Greeks added a few modifications to it, but little has changed since then.

As the Greeks adopted the Babylonian Zodiac, the Hindus also adopted the Greek Zodiac later. The Hind Zodiac does not keep the seasonal alignment but still there are similarities among the two.

The symbols among both zodiacs are also very similar.


Instead of looking at yourself from an eastern or western astrological perspective, get the whole picture from both perspectives.

What is a Black Zodiac

black zodiac signs

You have probably heard of the story of the good and the bad wolf living inside you? The one we we keep on feeding grows while the other starves.

This simply exemplifies that whatever we choose to focus on grows.

Every story has 2 sides, every coin has 2 sides, every good emotion has its correspondent 'bad' emotion. Even the Bible mentions angels and demons, good and bad, sun and moon, day and night.

I personally do not like to label things as good or bad, emotions for example. I believe the emotions we call bad sometimes, are necessary and must be expressed the same way a 'good' emotion must be expressed.

You need the dark you to come out every now and then, that is healthy. On the same note, the Dark or Black Zodiac refers to the dark side of each zodiac sign.

Zodiac signs are usually portrayed in a good light, however, there cannot be a good side without its evil counterpart.

Why is the Dark Zodiac Not Talked About More Often?

I believe, as humans, we tend to dislike focusing on evil or bad traits. We like to avoid them, we like to avoid 'bad' emotions.

Since we are little, we learn that anger, sadness, aggression, are all bad traits, for the most part, when they are emotions and feelings like any other and should not be labelled as such.

For this same reason, I believe the Black Zodiac is not talked about or studied more.

Do not fear the dark side within you, for it is part of who you are.

The moment you stop judging yourself for having 'bad' or 'dark' traits, will be the moment you are able to control them instead of them controlling you.

Black Zodiac Signs

The Dark Zodiac also originated from Babylon in the same way the normal Zodiac did. All the 12 Zodiac signs have their dark counterpart.

The black zodiac signs are the following:

The Beast Aquarius (Jan 20- Feb 18)

The dark side of the Acquarius sign is willing to do anything to get ahead, even if that means hurting somebody else.

They are very straight-forward and considered to be blunt/ruthless to some. They also come across as arrogant and intrusive, giving their opinions and advice even when not required.

Because they believe to be smarter than everybody else, they also judge people that do not measure up, in their eyes.

People rely on you for emotional support, you are usually open to that as your threshold for pain is high, so you can take it.

You usually deal with a lot of your pain yourself too, relying on you to find a solution for them.

The Sword Pisces (Feb 19- Mar 20)

The Sword - dark side of the Zodiac sign Pisces can be really dark when pushed or in agony. A sword is a symbol of power, glory but also war.

They can be self centred, which comes across as selfish, especially in relationships. The sword is an arm to attack, and they can attack others by pulling them down and damaging the reputation of others.

Often they portray themselves as victims to get what they want.

As much as they get involved with others, they also move one rather quickly, to avoid any pain.

The Tyrant Aries (Mar 21-Apr 19)

Ambition, greed and thirst for power are very true characteristics of the Tyrant Aries.

Everything they conquer does not seem to be enough and they always go for more.

Because of these features, some people become entitled which can really harm relationships.

They are also independent, making their own decisions sometimes instead of going with the majority.

The Fallen Demon Taurus (Apr 20-May 20)

You are focused on your past a lot of the time, and this can haunt you if you have too many regrets.

Failures are part of life, learn to see them as stepping stones for where you want to be in the future. Failures do not define you.

The fallen demon in you can be very materialistic and come across as selfish. You also focus on superficial things spending a lot of your finances on them.

The Hydra Gemini (May 21-Jun 20)

The Hydra Gemini's bad side thrives in intimidating others. Sometimes just a small thing will set them off.

Geminis can vary in personalities, and so can be very unpredictable. Always keep that in mind if you have a Gemini in your life.

The Hydra Geminis are not all bad, their anger is validated in situations and they can use it to even protect loved ones, if necessary.

The Serpent Cancer (Jun 21- Jul 22)

The Serpent Cancer can be manipulative at times. Think about the serpent that deceived Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.

They are usually smart when it comes to befriending people or influencing others to their personal gain.

Cancer can also be unpredictable in mood swings.

The War Maiden Leo (Jul 23- Aug 22)

Leos in general can be very difficult to understand and grasp, but more so The War Maiden.

They can have different perspectives about different things, and focus on positives via a negative light.

They like to be the centre of attention when ignored. Leos are also easily lovable, which works for their advantage when gathering people to their side.

The Maelstrom Virgo (Aug 23-Sep 22)

The Maelstrom Virgo is known for being jealous and possessive when it comes to relationships and romance.

They can also be very selfish trying to make things work for them and how they are accustomed.

Usually if things do not go their way, they tend to make them even more difficult for whoever is getting in their way.

The Ravenous Libra (Sep 23- Oct 22)

The Ravenous are full of energy and always up to do anything, they also motivate others, but usually harshly. If they motivate you, they probably do it more for them then for you.

They can also become workaholics and will stop at nothing in order to achieve their dreams.

The Poisoned Dart Scorpio (Oct 23- Nov 21)

The Poisoned Dart Scorpios can be very agile, I believe they should be classified as dark horses because they will swoop in when you least expect.

They will stay calm and patient as long as things go on their favour. If you will argue with one of them, wait till the storm passes as they will not listen to you while angry.

The Tempest Sagittarius (Nov 22- Dec 21)

The Tempest Sagittarius are wild like a tornado, that means that they will do and say whatever comes to mind with little regard about an external opinion.

They can come across as rude and blunt, but some people recognise it as honesty and appreciate them for it.

Often they are strike as know-it-all too.

The Leviathan Capricorn (Dec 22- Jan 19)

The Leviathan Capricorn is an elusive, mysterious and unpredictable being. They do not like showing their true colours or be vulnerable as that can be seen as a weakness.

They also like to talk and slander others behind their backs, so keep that in mind when befriending a Capricorn.

What is My Black Zodiac Sign

This one is pretty obvious, you can just look at your date of birth, look at the normal zodiac sign you are and look at its black counterpart.

Necronomicon and the Dark Zodiac

The Necromicon is a fictional book also known as the Book of the Dead. It appeared initially in the stories told by H. P. Lovecraft. Since his death, several books entitled Necromicon have been published.

Howard points out in his stories that whoever reads even small portions of the Necromicon can go mad. As he wrote, this contains secrets to call old spirits back to Earth.

In regards to the black zodiac, this was also portrayed in the Necromicon even though it can me from the same source as the normal zodiac, the Babylon astrological maps.
