We can guarantee that someone – whether a friend, a first date, or a total stranger – has asked you for your zodiac sign. While there are endless theories, articles, books, and beyond written about the subject, if you want to know some beginner info, you’ve come to the right place. Here is a roundup of what experts say are the main personality traits for each zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Aries are said to lead others fearlessly; they do not follow a single person or trend. A little bit of danger and daring adventure doesn’t scare them away, as they tend to welcome the unknown with bravery. Whatever is next, they’re willing to take a deep dive into it with full energy and enthusiasm. Aries are potentially quick to anger but just as quick to shrug it off and move on. They are said to be fully aware of their independence and ambitions yet ready to share those traits with the rest of the world.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
According to experts, a Taurus will speak most things into existence, having a special knack for manifesting personal gain through finances. Money often lands in their lap, making it easy to purchase and collect material goods. Because of their luck with money, a Taurus is said to be able to ground and balance their life quite easily. That doesn’t mean that hard work isn’t put into their earnings, as they are often the most dependable employee to have on your team.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Gemini is a tricky sign, said to resemble and symbolize celestial twins. Their personality traits are seemingly being pulled from the left and right fields, making it easy to assume they have more than one personality. Generally speaking, Geminis are super-playful and willing to do anything spur-of-the-moment. Their spontaneity is addictive, and their curiosity often leads them to experiment with life and relationships.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Astrologers say Cancer feels the deepest of emotions; they have keen awareness and receptiveness, but that doesn’t help their sensitive side stay strong through tough times. Though they are known to put their hearts and souls into the things they believe in, they are not the easiest shells to crack. Their tough exterior protects their soft side from heartbreak.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leos tend to yearn for the people surrounding them to make a good first impression. If not, all hope of a relationship may be lost. Leos are said to attract people from all walks of life, and they are the center of attention. Sometimes, that doesn’t bode well: They may have to learn to wean out the bad. As long as you’re consistent and not flighty, a Leo should welcome you with open arms and stability.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22
Virgos can get almost anything done in a pinch of time. They are known to be very wise and practical, learning and implementing any system they need to make things easier. Virgos are also said to be perfectionists and will do anything to keep improving, no matter the length of time it takes to pass that next level.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libras need peace and balance in all things: work, play, and relationships. These social butterflies are known for being quite the charmers, believing in 100% fairness. When someone or something comes along that they strongly desire, they won’t hesitate to jump and make it happen. However, this eager willingness may encourage codependency, potentially striking an emotional or sensitive response down the road.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Astrologists say that Scorpio, the eternal hot and cold, on-and-off sign, asks a lot of important questions due to their natural curiosity about the world. Though smart, determined, and stable, Scorpios apparently can flip and quickly become emotional.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21
According to experts, Sagittarius wants and needs a never-ending plethora of information, requiring constant knowledge and always willing to push the natural limits of learning. This can pertain to traveling, intellectual subjects, and spiritual realizations.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorns are said to be very ambitious and hardworking but can be shy and reserved. They have the patience to handle just about anything. They want to be stable and build a life with no financial strain or familial worry. Capricorn knows exactly how to start, maintain, and continue with a career. Though they may be less emotional than other signs, they value romantic and friendly relationships.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius is said to have one goal: to create a vision for this world and make it a better place with or without the help of others. Smart in nature and curious at heart, an Aquarius finds a way to get everything they want and need done. No project will get dropped on their watch.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces are said to have psychic energy with intense intuition. Though sensitive, a Pisces can be extremely caring for other people with sympathy and empathy. Outside of that, they are said to have a mixture of personality traits from all the other signs, constantly struggling with separating fiction from fact.
