The angry astrologist has locked you up in a series of a room. With your superior thinking abilities, you escape them one by one, until you reach the final room.

There’s a locked door with an electronic keypad with the numbers 0 to 9, and it only takes 4 digits. In the middle of the room, there’s a table with information about the zodiacs.

AQUARIUS – January-February
PISCES – February-March
ARIES – March-April
TAURUS – April-May
GEMINI – May-June
CANCER – June-July
LEO – July-August
VIRGO – August-September
LIBRA – September-October
SCORPIO – October-November
SAGITTARIUS – November-December
CAPRICORN – December-January

You look around for more clues and stumble across something rather interesting. Above the door are three drawings from left to right: a set of scales, two fishes swimming in a circle, and a goat.

enter image description here

Suddenly, the angry astrologist announces, “You have five minutes to escape. But if you enter the wrong code, you’ll be in for a huge surprise!

Since my favorite holiday is coming soon, I’m feeling generous, so here’s a hint...just kidding! No hints! Hahahahaha!”

The angry astrologist always talks in riddles, so you’re quite sure there was a hint in what she said.

Time is running out!

Can you figure out the 4-digit code?

    $\begingroup$ I fear this one is too broad - all of the guesses below seem to have justified a different 4-number code in some way from the information provided, and there doesn't seem to be any way to verify which of the many possible answers is correct other than the OP saying "it's not the right code". This seems to be a guessing game as to what number the OP is thinking of... $\endgroup$ – Stiv Dec 3 '19 at 16:59

    $\begingroup$ If you feel the need to post a full explanation yourself, please post it as a self-answer. The solution is not part of the question and shouldn't be in the question post. Having said that, it is generally nicer to give would-be solvers hints and time to let them come up with the solution themselves. I’ll also echo what @PiIsNot3 has said: we’re not in your head, and the steps you took to your solution are neither hinted at, nor clearly self-evident; puzzles that have no thread to pull to start unraveling them leave solvers to just guess what you were thinking, which is not good in a puzzle. $\endgroup$ – Rubio Dec 4 '19 at 8:10

The Images are represented Zodiac signs

LIBRA , PISCES , CAPRICORN

respectively.

LIBRA – September-October PISCES – February-March CAPRICORN –December-January

The mention about the favourite holiday coming soon is about the

Christmas It is in December - 12th Month. (first month in CAPRICORN period) So first month in PISCES period - February - 2nd month of the year. first month in LIBRA period - September - 9th month of the year. So the 4-digit code will be 12 2 9 => 1229

9231. Similar interpretation of Libra, Pisces and Capricorn but staying with the orignal order, using the months digits but skipping the two digit months. 9-10-2-3-12-1 becomes 9-2-3-1

Taking the hint in a different connection,

"Just Kidding" could refer to only using Capricorn's dates, as a baby goat is known as a kid.

I enter:

$5231$

because:

'You have five' - first digit is $5$.

Each symbol points to a subtraction of the number of letters, so:

LIBRA – September-October : $9-7=2$
PISCES – February-March : $8-5=3$
CAPRICORN – December-January : $8-7=1$

Hence $5231$

Not a complete answer, but based on clues

the information of X-MAS and the listed zodiac signs are shifted by two positions can act as clues in arriving at the 4 digit code

Such as,

X-MAS is on 12/25 or 25/12 and number of letters of shown 3 zodiac signs are: 5, 6, 11 (and, here a wild guess plays a role) - sum of these numbers is 22 and it is the number of days in which Christmas is due(today being 3rd Dec. )

thereby giving the code as

5 6 1 1
