Zodiac Decans

I've always been obsessed with my birth sign Aries reading about which, has been quite fascinating since my childhood. I never faced any problems in believing that astrology has some amount of truth to it. The belief regarding the same is prolly because whenever I pick a zodiac book and read it, I am so convinced about it that sometimes I feel like the Aries part of the book is exclusively written about me. I can relate to atleast 99% of Arian traits that all the zodiac books depict.

Usually, there are three kinds of people who read and react upon learning their zodiac traits.

The believers
Just like me, some find that most of the zodiac traits they read match their own personality.
And hence they are usually left with no choice but to admit the truth about it.

The semi believers
Some others find that only 50 to 60% of zodiac traits match their personality due to which they may choose to believe in it but not very staunchly.

The indifferents and the non believers
People of this set are either indifferent or choose to shun zodiac upon learning that less than 30% of the zodiac traits match their own personality.

I myself was quite confused about this chaos in the accuracy of depicting zodiac traits amongst people born under the same sign. But today I stumbled across this concept of decans in zodiac which answers why all traits of a zodiac are not necessarily witnessed in all people of the same sign.

A decan is a 10 degree division within the zodiac sign i.e the period within a zodiac is divided into three sub divisions which are called as decans. Amongst this three decans, people belonging to the first decan of their zodiac possess the complete or most characteristics of that zodiac sign. People belonging to the second decan possess partial traits of their own zodiac along with partial traits of an other zodiac controlled by the same element. People belonging to the third decan possess very few traits of their own zodiac and the major rest of an other zodiac controlled by the same element.

Amongst the 12 zodiacs, each element controls three signs each.

The fire element : Aries, Leo and Sagittarius
The earth element : Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn
The air element : Gemini, Libra and Aquarius
The water element : Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces

Also, signs of the same element are most compatible with each other.

Here I give some info about three decans each of every zodiac and the kinds of traits
they possess based on the signs that influence them. So if you belong to the second or third decan of your zodiac, then make sure you check on the traits of the other zodiac specified too.

So go ahead! Note down the birthday of the person you like, :P Pick up a good zodiac book and learn about his/her traits referring both the zodiacs if they belong to decans 2 or 3. This time you will not be disappointed ;-)

Any game in life is half won when you know the other person's traits or characteristics. Zodiac science will help one know these except that one has to remember that traits are generic and there is no hard and fast rule to define in general that a person belonging to a birth sign will always behave in a so and so expected way. Zodiac sign study is just a pointer to the greater esoteric art, astrology. It is just sad that today, there aren't many who really excel in this ancient occult science.

  1. First things first, I am a total believer! It's very interesting and strange at the same time because, just like you said, the prediction/ traits of my zodiac (Cancer) ALWAYS turns outta be true from most sources [which implies I should be in the first decan], but acc to the decan classification, I come in the third! :-O This made me read the traits of Pisces, and to my shock I found out that approx 70-75% of that is also like describing me! :-O So I don't know how much to believe this decan classification! Maybe that is because ultimately both are water elements and hence, they share similar traits!!!
    Wonderful post Vamsi! :)

  2. Cool stuff! Never knew about the Decans. I think it is somewhat similar to padas in the Hindu astrology. As a Decan 1 person, I guess I am as Virgo as I can possibly be! :D

    I KNEW IT .. That March 31st is the first decan and not the second. Most people say that it is the second, but I believe it's the first. Haha. Just saying.

  23. Really interesting, I just found out about Decans and wanted to read more. I'm a Decan 1 Libra, and though I don't completely relate to Libra (mainly the outgoing/flirty part), I do feel more Libran than the other air elements. No matter what I'll be dragged down by my earthy moon... j/k :))

    hi I read abt this concept in a star sign book only it classified accd to the names of the stars, eg hydra or corvus.
    how to check for that? eg: Leo - Decan 1 (Born between July 23 and August 2)Fully Leo or Double Leo what are the traits?

  25. YukariOro says:

    I don't know, I'm a Pisces Decan 1 but my rising sign is Taurus, which is a fixed Earth sign I believe.

    Therefore I very rarely am able to completely identify with generic Pisces horoscopes. In fact I very rately read them and defintely don't rely on them for guidance.

    Truth is, the only horoscope that felt accurate to me was one done off my birthchart years ago..

    I just guess that Taurus rising sign makes me far more practical than your pure Pisces. Or that's what everything I have read about Pisces with Taurus rising proclaims and it definitely feels true to me.

    As a result, I never honestly take the generic horoscopes seriously, and even the Pisces Decan 1 doesn't ring true to me entirely personality wise.

    I also recently exited a relationship with a Scorpio, who is supposed to be a good match from Pisces, but it ended up being the worst for me. I'm not sure if this is because my rising sign's influence strong fixed influence, but I suspect it strongly might.

    Nevertheless I still do have fun casually exploring the zodiac from time to time.
