Swedish Astrology

Posted on 12. Oct, 2010 by in Grammar, Swedish Language


To improve your Swedish you need to be creative if you don´t have books available where you live. But you have internet nowadays almost everywhere. Finding good resources are essential when it comes to your language learning. It doesn´t have to be complicated at all. Adjectives, adverbs and idiomatic expressions are one of the hardest parts of the language learning, but they are extremely useful so you can color your Swedish in everyday use. Astrological texts are fun and full of useful and descriptive adjectives. As I am a Capricorn I have tried to figure it out what descriptive adjectives are the most common for me.  I have to admit that I don´t believe in astrology but it was fun looking it up.  

As a Capricorn  you can be:  ambitious (ambitös), purposeful (målmedveten),  efficient (effektiv), organized (organiserad), smiling (leende) responsible (ansvarsfull), disciplined (disciplinerad), focuses (fokuserad), independent (självständig), realistic (realistisk),  restrained (återhållsam), dispassionate (lidelsefri), objektive/impartial (saklig), mature (mogen), wise (klok), prestigious (prestigefylld),  hierarchich(al) (hierarkisk), scheduled (schemabunden), pessimistic (pessimistisk), melancholy (melankolisk), mistrustful ( misstrogen), cynical (cynisk), cold (känslokall), stiff (stel), dull (torr), stingy/dutch (snål), inhibited (hämmad), old-fashioned (gammalmodig).   

Star signs in Swedish  

Vattumannen – Aquarius, Pisces – Fiskarna, Väduren – Aries, Oxen -Taurus, Kräftan – Cancer, Lejonet – Leo, Jungfrun – Virgo, Vågen – Libra, Skorpionen – Scorpion, Skytten – Sagittarius, Stenbocken – Capricorn *note that they are in definite form.    

What is your star sign and what are the four most descriptive adjectives of your star sign in Swedish? Write two positive and two negative characteristics about yourself in Swedish. I have highlighted four about myself as well. What I consider myself to be.

    Jag är en vädur (född 17 april).
    Jag är:
    + vänlig
    + optimistisk
    – otålig
    – diktatorisk

    I too don’t believe in astrology; they say aries people are very extrovert and impulsive, but I’m very shy (though friendly) and I like to think things through before acting on them.

    Looking up my characteristics in Swedish was quite fun though. 🙂

    Hi Leticia!

    You should add flitig and duktig to your positive words 🙂

    Jag är född i vågens tecken

    Positiva egenskaper:
    +starkt rättvisepatos
    +socialt kompetent

    Mindre positiva egenskaper:

    I really don´t believe in this, and even tough several attributes describes me, I could probably identify myself with all of the zodiac signs.

    Fun way to look up new words though!

    Thanks so much Tibor! Do you have a link to where one might find some descriptions in Swedish for each sign?

    Hi Judy!

    You find a lot of adjectives and even nouns regarding description. These are very useful words. Especially the second link. It helps you do your homework 🙂

    Question: Is the sign for Cancer, a CRAB or a CRAYFISH? In Swedish.

  10. Steve 18 May 2012 at 8:59 pm #

    Crayfish. Crab is krabba and not an astrological character in Swedish. Hope that helps!
