Some people don’t believe in zodiac signs. However, others find great emotional and spiritual fulfillment in understanding their place among the stars. Still others just read their daily horoscope for kicks. No matter which group you belong to, there are exciting things that you can learn about personality types in relation to zodiac signs.
So let’s take a look at a general rundown of the personality traits of each zodiac sign.
Birthday: March 21 – April 19
Traits: Bold, aggressive, fiery
Aries is the first zodiac sign, and it’s a doozy. If you were born under the sign of the ram, you’re a go-getter who isn’t afraid to take life by the horns. You face challenges with courage and tenacity, and you don’t compromise your morals for anyone. You know who you are and what you need.
The one drawback of being an Aries is that you might come off as intimidating to others. Try to keep some of that fire as a slow sizzle rather than a blazing inferno!
Birthday: April 20 – May 20
Traits: Honest, dependable, hardworking
The bull is a creature with its feet firmly on the ground. It has a “salt of the earth” personality, and it’s often considered the provider or caregiver of the horoscope family. While the other animals are goofing around, the bull works steadily and tirelessly.
If you’re a Taurus, you probably have a powerful sense of self. Even if you’re currently struggling with things, you know what you want to happen in your life, and your visions for the future are bright.
Try to find a balance between taking care of yourself and taking care of others. There’s nothing wrong with helping your friends, but self-care is essential, as well.
Birthday: May 21 – June 20
Traits: Smart, dynamic, flexible
Geminis have some of the most versatile personality types in the entire zodiac. They can be sharp, serious, funny, witty, hardworking, creative, passionate, and much more. Their horoscope is a goodie bag of traits.
You can see this flexibility mirrored in their zodiac sign: the twins. They have so much pizzazz that it can’t be contained in a single person!
If you’re a Gemini, you probably live an inspiring life. Just make sure that you pace yourself on the roller coaster so that you don’t burn out.
Birthday: June 21 – July 22
Traits: Intuitive, empathetic, intelligent
Just like crabs can exist on both the land and the sea, Cancers can adjust their personality to fit in with various types of people. Do your friends always tell you that you’re great at giving advice? Do you have an intuitive gift for understanding social situations or putting yourself in other people’s shoes? You might’ve been born under this water sign.
Stay fluid, Cancer. Keep navigating the tides of your life with skill and grace. Just don’t lose yourself in the current: Spend time developing your sense of self that you can come back to when you’re done dealing with other people’s problems.
Birthday: July 23 – August 22
Traits: Strong, passionate, vivacious
Everyone knows when a Leo roars onto the scene. This zodiac sign is famous for its bright spark, bold attitude, and fun-loving personality.
Despite their reputation, however, Leos aren’t always loud. They can be quiet sources of strength and passion, especially if they’re involved in things like social work or the arts, and they also have a knack for making others feel better. They’re great huggers!
If you’re a Leo, you shine like the sun and probably give strength to others just like a summer day. You might want to take a breather every now and then, but otherwise, keep it up.
Birthday: August 23 – September 22
Traits: Calm, practical, detail-oriented
Nothing escapes the keen eye of the Virgo. They have a smart, logical personality type that can complete any task or master any system. If you’re a Virgo, your daily horoscope is probably centered around getting things done.
The downside of this zodiac sign is that Virgos can be too pragmatic. They can be so focused on the details that they miss the big picture. Or, a Virgo might suffer misunderstandings with the more turbulent signs when they seem too far removed from their emotions.
It’s okay to feel things, Virgo. Stay in touch with your softer side. Expressing your emotions is healthy for you. In fact, studies prove that verbalizing your feelings can have a therapeutic effect on your brain.
Birthday: September 23 – October 22
Traits: Smart, generous, emotionally balanced
Libras are the only members of the zodiac to be represented by an inanimate object: the scales. This symbol speaks to their sense of fairness and justice while also signifying their desire for harmony in all things.
If you’re a Libra, you probably don’t like conflict. You want people to get along, and if you’re the outgoing type, you don’t mind playing mediator.
Just be careful about meddling in the affairs of others when they aren’t in the mood for your wisdom. Even if you have good intentions, you don’t want to cross any lines.
Birthday: October 23 – November 21
Traits: Confident, focused, driven
Scorpios are some of the most misunderstood members of the zodiac. Because of their positive, self-assured ways, they’re often mistaken for a fire sign, but the truth is that they’re firmly in the water. They’re an ocean that will eventually erode the rocks with patience and persistence.
If you’re a Scorpio, you’ve probably been told to “chill out” at least once in your life. The good news is that there are plenty of relaxation techniques out there for people who need to decompress. A few mindfulness habits can take the stress off your shoulders.
Birthday: November 22 – December 21
Traits: Intelligent, restless, motivated
The archer can launch their arrows into any number of targets. If they’re the creative type, they can create great works of art. However, if they’re into business, they can build their own company from the ground up. Finally, if they’re family-oriented, they can take care of the kids like supermom or superdad.
In other words, a Sagittarius can go to many different places in life. Their only flaw is that they can sometimes spend too much time planning their future rather than actively pursuing it. Sagittarius, create an action plan, and get moving!
Birthday: December 22 – January 19
Traits: Disciplined, dedicated, effective
Everyone has that one friend who can get things done, and if you’re a Capricorn, that friend is probably you. The goat is a practical zodiac sign with a good head on its shoulders. Like its namesake, it can navigate any path on any mountain. No obstacle will stop it from achieving its goals.
The downside of this determination is that Capricorns don’t always handle failure well. If you’re the type to beat yourself up when you don’t meet standards or deadlines, you might need to learn how to turn negativity into positivity.
Birthday: January 20 – February 18
Traits: Creative, independent, eccentric
Despite its water themes, Aquarius is the last air sign of the zodiac, and it’s a whirlwind of creative energy. This out-of-the-box horoscope is always filled with fun, artistic ideas, and independent thinking.
You can’t always understand an Aquarius. If you’re the Aquarius, you’ve probably met lots of people who didn’t quite “get” you.
Fortunately, other members of the zodiac will mesh with your unique energy. You have to find the right people to love, support, and appreciate you for the awesome person that you are.
Birthday: February 19 – March 20
Sign: Twin fish
