When identifying the zodiac signs' physical characteristics, you don't want to look at just the Sun sign. You also want to look at the Ascendant or Rising Sign. The Sun sign is more about a person's inner drive, willpower, and motivation. The Ascendant is about how individuals present themselves to the world, including how they look. So if you are a Sagittarius Sun with a Cancer Ascendant, you first want to look at Cancer to learn about your health, behavior, and physical appearance.

How to Determine a Person's Astrological Sun Sign Using Physical and Personality Traits - Exemplore
Theories on Astrological Signs and their Appearance. The Pythagoreans Followers of Pythagoras of Samos - 5th century BCE were gratuitously picked apart for proclaiming the alleged philosophy of metempsychosis reincarnation or transmigration of the soul. Greek religious mystics thought that from the source base of souls contained in the Milky Way, the soul of man passed through one of the 12 doors of the zodiac band, and settled into the physical body. If the soul was embodied through Aries, it was alleged to be born in the personification of a ram. If in Taurus -- the Bull, Cancer --the Crab, and so on. Therefore, the 12 mystical characters zodiac signs and their natures by coming into physical form, represent all humankind. The philosophy of metempsychosis didn't have bearing on what you could physically see of human beings, but instead to the unseen incorporeal spirit drifting along in the stars.
