The Black Zodiac is the dark counterpart of the Western Astrological Zodiac. Both of which originated from the Babylonian Zodiac. Through centuries of repeated reinterpretation and adaptation by numerous cultures including Greek, Roman, and Hindu, the original Zodiac was filtered to represent only the good side of one’s personality. This long history of revision eventually resulted into the modern Zodiac that became the pillar of Western Astrology.
As the name denotes, the Black Zodiac represents the evil side of the human creature. These demons are one’s inherent will and capacity to ultimately cause harm to oneself and others. This evil, however, should not be feared. Like good, it can be harnessed and turned into something useful.
Each of the Black Zodiac embodies the morbid traits that are as unique as each person. It is important to know, face, and nurture one’s demons in order to manipulate it for personal benefit.
The Tyrant: March 21 – April 19 (Aries)
You are greed in human form. You want the world and you will take it. The inability to feel contentment keeps you motivated. You can find happiness through the suffering of others. People are merely tools for you to use, abuse and discard.(if you ask me it sounds like fun to me but hey to each his own)
The Fallen Demon: April 20- May 20 (Taurus)
You are the Fallen Demon. Your past is a ghost that follows you everywhere. You have made mistakes and you live with the repercussions. People have wronged you and you will never forget. Others may see you as a broken man and they may be right. They may look down on you because you were defeated but you’ve been to hell and you will never go back. You will redeem yourself no matter what it takes.(hell yeah! Just a bit of glue and just like new and ready for more big homie)
The Basilisk: May 21 – June 20 (Gemini)
The Basilisk commands fear. Your stare is deadly but your bite is deadlier. You are built to harm and you know how to torment others. In the right situation, you can be very dangerous. All you need is provocation. Those who know your true nature regard you with equal fear and respect. Those who do not will find out in the worst of ways.(ummm…. ok! cool! Remaind me not to piss in you cereal )
The Serpent: June 21 – July 22 (Cancer)
The serpent is the symbol of wisdom and deceit. You are both cunning and clever. People may regard you as low, wretched and maybe even repulsive but you know how to use these to your advantage. Trust is a weakness that you can exploit outstandingly. Your virtues are insidious and your ways are elegant.(sound like my lawyer!)
The War Maiden: July 23 – August 22 (Leo)
The War Maiden is a paradox. You appreciate beauty and anticipate decay. This conflicting nature of yours may be regarded as puzzling and ultimately disturbing by others, thus very few can see the beauty of your ways. Seeing through comforting lies enables you to embrace the hardships of reality. You stand in the thin line between the evil and the benign. (we could be best friends)
The Maelstrom: August 23 – September 22 (Virgo)
You are the Maelstrom. Like the wrath of god, you are most dangerous to the ones that you love the most. You may project a caring and compassionate image but you have the tendency to be possessive. What’s yours is yours alone; better destroyed by your hands than taken by others. You dwell on jealousy and you savor the fury that comes with it.(lets just be friends)
The Ravenous: September 23 – October 22 (Libra)
You are the Ravenous. Sanity is hanging by a thread. You’re inner demons are hidden away and they are aching to break free. This life of order and conformity to petty norms disgusts you. You long for that sweet day when you’ll be free to cause damage, pain and suffering to that special list of people that you have at the back of your head.
The Tempest: November 22 – December 21 (Sagittarius)
You are the tempest. Free and carefree. Nothing is more important than your desires. You’re pursuit of pleasure and contentment may bring suffering to others but that is not your problem is it? Those who stand in your way better hold their ground, for you will not hesitate to destroy them. Make no mistake, you are not hateful. You just don’t care at all.(am i on you way i can move no need to destroy me now)
The Leviathan: December 22 – January 19 (Capricorn)
You are the leviathan. A monstrosity in a dark abyss. The great potential that you possess is locked away for good reason but the mere thought of it is enough to strike terror, even to yourself. You fear your own demons because you know very well what they are capable of. But you are neither weak nor a coward. You’re struggle to gain control is a victory in itself.(dont fight them make friends with them)
The Beast: January 20 – February 18 (Aquarius)
Dwell in the dark long enough and you shall become darkness itself. The beast knows and accepts the evils inside him. You can point this evil in any direction yet you would rather point it inwards than set it loose on the people you care about. You are the master of your demons. You consume fury, pain and despair like a bitter drug.
The Sword: February 19 – March 20 (Pisces)
The sword is a symbol of glory. Admired by the weak and coveted by the daring. Yet you remain true to your real purpose. You are designed to hurt after all. The cut is merely the beginning, followed by the rot of the injury then a shameful scar. You are a painful reminder to those who have failed to wield you. The sight of you is enough to torment. And they can’t help but to look can they?
