Characteristics of the Egyptian Zodiac Sign Thoth: If your sign is Thoth, you are very creative, good-natured, and have an excellent memory. You are a natural communicator and enjoy sharing all that you know. You're always looking for ways to better yourself, whether it's through learning, activity, or health.
Being average is not good enough for you. You want to be the best you can be. Your quest for excellence leads you to be a life-long student. Your constant desire for knowledge and experiences makes you an excellent problem solver.
Your word is your bond. You never break it and you never cheat others. You frown on anyone who is dishonest, unreliable, or just downright mean.
About the god Thoth: Thoth maintained the universe and arbitrated disputes among the gods. He invented writing, and was the scribe of the gods, keeping a record of everything that happened. He was a wise counselor whose advice was always sought.
Thoth oversaw the judgement of the dead. He would question a soul before recording the result of the weighing of the soul's heart. If the soul passed, Thoth declared that the deceased was worthy of a good afterlife.
Unlike most of the gods in Egyptian Astrology, Thoth was not a sun god. He was a lunar (or moon) god, and was often depicted with the crescent of the moon on his head.
