What Your Zodiac Sign Says About You

Updated on July 12, 2018

A lifelong devotee of astrology. I thank my grandma, a Libra, for introducing me. In my spare time, I randomly ask people their zodiac sign.

I am not an expert on the zodiac, but I have been studying the concept for several years. If I meet someone new, I can usually take a good guess as to what sign they are very quickly. I am usually correct, or at least in the correct category, (i.e. Water or Fixed signs). These write-ups are based on my experience with each sign.

If you are on the “cusp” of a sign, you may unknowingly take on characteristics of both signs. For example, my grandma is on the cusp of Virgo/Libra. She can be quite nitpicky as a Virgo, but also a bit flaky and more easygoing like a Libra. She tends to get along best with Fire and Air signs, so I would consider her more of a Libra.

Also, something I’ve noticed is that you can also be affected by the signs of who you grew up with. For example, my parents are both Pisces, so I am a bit more emotional than most Leos are. This makes it also easier for me to get along with other Pisces, as I understand where they’re coming from. I still do get along best with other Fire and Air signs.

I do not believe in the cheeky, daily Horoscopes that feature in newspapers. In my opinion, someone came up with those to make people feel good; not actually predict the future. They are enjoyable to read, but usually, as reliable as a fortune cookie.

Astrology is not a perfect science. Certain characteristics may not apply to you, and that's okay. There are a few different factors that we are not going to mention here, including Moon and Rising aspects. These aspects help to narrow down more specifically how you are, and why you are the way you are by using your date and location of birth. That's a bit too complicated for me, and I think a lot can be understood by just your Sun sign. No, it's not a perfect science, but it works for me.

Water/Earth/Fire/Air Signs:

I will be referencing two groups that Sun signs can be grouped under that can provide additional insight in your sign. One is the natural elements, and the other is the driving elements.

The natural elements—is exactly how it sounds—your sign naturally is at its core. Most of this you probably are familiar with these already, so let's have a review.

Water Signs: Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio

These signs tend to be emotional, sensitive, and intuitive.

Earth Signs: Capricorn, Virgo, Taurus

These signs tend to be, what else; down-to-earth, level-headed, and practical.

Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius

These signs tend to be energetic, creative, and outgoing.

Air Signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius

These signs tend to be idealistic, chatty, and philosophical.

Fixed/Cardinal/Mutable Signs:

This is another group that your Sun signs can be qualified under--the driving elements. This can help answer the question: What drives you?

Fixed Signs: Leo, Taurus, Scorpio, Aquarius

These are the stubborn signs. In a group, they tend to make a decision and stick with it. They are also people you can rely on to be a "rock" and keep their head together when things go south. They are pretty perseverant.

Cardinal Signs: Aries, Capricorn, Cancer, Libra

These are the leader signs. In a group, these are ones that will almost always volunteer to be the leader, or could possibly butt heads with the actual leader. They love exploring new territory.

Mutable Signs: Sagittarius, Virgo, Pisces, Gemini

These are the communicator signs. The mutable signs are the ones that will talk to everyone in the group. They might be distracting, but they bring fresh ideas.

Aries the Ram (March 21-April 19)

We’re going to start with Aries, as they love taking the lead. Aries are Fire, Cardinal signs—they’re competitive, energetic, outgoing, and natural born leaders. They are always on the move, usually have a lot of friends, and seem to have ants-in-their-pants. They are notoriously impatient and live life to the fullest. Aries can also be a bit selfish, when they have an idea and want to act on it. They can also have a temper.

You'll recognize them as: they never stop moving.

Of course, Aries best gets along with their fellow Fire signs: Leo and Sagittarius. They can also get along well with their fellow Cardinal signs: Capricorn, Cancer, and Libra.

Their best love matches are Fire and Air signs: Leo, Sagittarius, Libra, Gemini, and Aquarius.

Famous Aries:

  • Lady Gaga
  • Mariah Carey
  • Joan Crawford
  • Robert Downey, Jr.
  • Harry Houdini
  • Russell Crowe
  • Elton John
  • Bette Davis
  • Quentin Tarantino
  • Sarah Jessica Parker

Taurus the Bull (April 20-May 20)

My husband's a Taurus. He's gentle, yet quietly forceful. He can take the most complicated subject and break it down in common terms. He's to-the-point and rational. He's got "sweet eyes", like George Clooney. Just. Don't. Tick. Him. Off. The bull will come out and tear up the town. Bulls are wonderfully well-meaning, but don't ever trick or betray them. Loyalty is everything to them. If they trust you, they will be your rock until the day you die.

I've also noticed that he and my aunt (who is also a Taurus) love good food. Like, really, really love good food...to the point of making themselves sick at times. I have no idea why. They also both love pumpkin. Coincidence?

You'll recognize them as: they are usually the reserved, yet naturally very sassy people that are willing to talk, but don't care if they do. They are usually dressed for comfort, maybe wearing their favorite cozy sweater.

Of course, Taurus best gets along with their fellow Earth signs: Capricorn and Virgo. They can also get along well with their fellow Fixed signs: Leo, Aquarius, and Scorpio.

Their best love matches are Earth and Water signs: Capricorn, Virgo, Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio.

Famous Taurus:

  • Cher
  • Barbra Streisand
  • Adele
  • Megan Fox
  • William Shakespeare
  • Jack Nicholson
  • Katharine Hepburn
  • Ho Chi Minh
  • Carol Burnett
  • George Lucas

Gemini the Twins (May 21-June 20)

Oh, Gemini. My other grandma is a Gemini. She has to be visually stimulated constantly, and they're natural multi-taskers. There have been times when I'm visiting where she will be playing a game or watching tv, while planning a task, and answering multiple people in the room. It's crazy, but Geminis can handle it. Their life is no different--they are always getting involved in new things, whether it's taking up a hobby, meeting new people, or joining a club--they do it all. If Aries is the sign of physically not sitting still, they are the mental sign of not sitting still.

Geminis also can get distracted and lose interest very quickly. Their brain is always going a mile a minute. They wouldn't have it any other way.

You'll recognize them as: they are the ones talking to everyone in the room while texting on their phone, making friend requests on Facebook, and still holding court, ever as charming.

Of course, Gemini best gets along with their fellow Air signs: Libra and Aquarius. They can also get along well with their fellow Mutable signs: Pisces, Virgo, and Sagittarius.

Their best love matches are Fire and Air signs: Leo, Aries, Sagittarius, Libra, and Aquarius.

Famous Gemini:

  • Angelina Jolie
  • Marilyn Monroe
  • Johnny Depp
  • John F. Kennedy
  • Juliette Lewis
  • Kanye West
  • Natalie Portman
  • Bob Dylan
  • Helena Bonham Carter
  • Stevie Nicks

Cancer the Crab (June 21-July 22)

One of my good friends is a Cancer, and she is wise beyond her years. She is very naturally maternal and loves to cook. That does seem to be a strong characteristic of Cancer--that they prefer to nest at home instead of a wild time out. I've known plenty of Cancers and they tend to be a bit feisty. I think the "feistiness" is just to protect just how sensitive they truly are. They are pretty empathic and moody, too.

You'll recognize them as: they are either the ones taking care of people or the ones standing in the corner by themselves not talking to anyone. For some reason, I've seen a lot of Cancers wear a lot of bright pink and bright orange. I don't know.

Of course, Cancer best gets along with their fellow Water signs: Pisces and Scorpio. They can also get along well with their fellow Cardinal signs: Aries, Capricorn, and Libra.

Their best love matches are Water and Earth signs: Pisces, Scorpio, Capricorn, Virgo, and Taurus.

Famous Cancer:

  • Bret McKenzie
  • Tom Hanks
  • Princess Diana
  • Harrison Ford
  • Kathy Bates
  • Anthony Bourdain
  • Mel Brooks
  • Larry David
  • King Henry VIII
  • Frances McDormand

Leo the Lion (July 23-August 22)

Ah, Leo the Lion. My sign. The dramatic, emotional, obstinate, expressive Lion. Lovable yet annoying. We don’t like our feelings hurt. That’s the worst thing in the world to us. Just let us be the center of attention--is that too much to ask?

Okay, we heard that collective groan. We get it. It's always a balance between exuding and pursuing our creative ideas and driving people crazy. I think people really respect my husband after they meet me. ;) We are good people though, and love our family and friends. We would do anything for them, as long as they get our "rules".

Some of us are quite loud, can have hot tempers, and most of us are pretty outgoing. We're just warm creatures who love people and animals.

You’ll recognize us as: we need to make you laugh or be seen. You'll probably hear us first.

Of course, Leo best gets along with our fellow Fire signs: Aries and Sagittarius. We can also get along well with our fellow Fixed signs: Taurus, Scorpio, and Aquarius.

Their best love matches are Fire and Air signs: Aries, Sagittarius, Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius.

Famous Leos:

  • Lucille Ball
  • Maureen O' Hara
  • Sandra Bullock
  • Barack Obama
  • Bill Clinton
  • Jennifer Lawrence
  • Whitney Houston
  • Ben Affleck
  • Coco Chanel
  • Lisa Kudrow

Virgo the Virgin (August 23-September 22)

Virgos are analytical; plain and simple. Gemini likes to talk is exactly how much Virgo likes to reason. God love them; don't expect them to make a decision very fast. They are classical overthinkers, who feel most natural taking a step back and looking at the big picture. Or the minute details--it could go either way. They have a very logical approach to everything and are also great communicators. Expect them to usually be a reliable friend who will be there to listen, anytime. They give great advice. They are definitely on the shy side.

You'll recognize them as: they are dressed in usually earth tone colors, talking with either a small group of people or one person for most of the night. They are quiet speakers, but can speak fast.

Of course, Virgo best gets along with their fellow Earth signs: Capricorn and Taurus. They can also get along well with their fellow Mutable signs: Sagittarius, Gemini, and Pisces.

Their best love matches are Earth and Water signs: Taurus, Capricorn, Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio.

Famous Virgo:

  • Queen Elizabeth I
  • Pippa Middleton
  • Michael Jackson
  • Beyoncé
  • Gene Kelly
  • Lauren Bacall
  • Peter Sellers
  • Sean Connery
  • Hugh Grant
  • Roald Dahl

Libra the Scales (September 23-October 22)

Like its' mascot, Libra tends to be fairly balanced. They are pretty laid-back and nothing really riles them. Libra gets along with literally everyone, and if there are any conflicts, they are the peacemakers. Everyone has a Libra friend.

They also tend to be very artsy, as the Famous Libra list below will confirm.

As perfect as Libras come across, they are a bit flaky. Don't plan on them being on time on a consistent basis. But don't worry--they'll balance out. (See what I did there.)

You'll recognize them as: they are the best-dressed ones in the room, making conversation with everyone from the guests to the servers. They'll arrive fashionably late and leave the party equally as early.

Of course, Libra best gets along with their fellow Air signs: Gemini and Aquarius. They can also get along well with their fellow Cardinal signs: Capricorn, Cancer, and Aries.

Their best love matches are Air and Fire signs: Gemini, Aquarius, Leo, Aries, and Sagittarius.

Famous Libra:

  • Julie Andrews
  • Neil deGrasse Tyson
  • Gwen Stefani
  • Christopher Lloyd
  • Hilary Duff
  • Bruno Mars
  • Kate Winslet
  • Marion Cotillard
  • Mahatma Gandhi
  • John Lennon

Scorpio the Scorpion (October 23-November 21)

A Scorpio man or woman is one of the most private people you will ever meet. They may come across as really outgoing and can be true party animals, but if you try to get close, be prepared to proceed slowly. Scorpios are just intense people who are protective of their feelings. Like other Water signs, they tend to feel deeply than other Sun signs. Scorpios can come across as super sharp-tongued and they are, but deep down, they are very good people. Just watch where you step.

You'll recognize them as: they are wearing some sort of outfit with assorted patterns, dark lace, purple, or bright pink. Again; I have no idea why.

Of course, Scorpio best gets along with their fellow Water signs: Pisces and Cancer. They can also get along well with their fellow Fixed signs: Leo, Taurus, and Aquarius.

Their best love matches are Water and Earth signs: Pisces, Cancer, Capricorn, Virgo, and Taurus.

Famous Scorpio:

  • John Cleese
  • John Adams
  • Theodore Roosevelt
  • Julia Roberts
  • Leonardo DiCaprio
  • Marie Antoinette
  • Neil Young
  • Demi Moore
  • Martin Scorsese
  • Katy Perry

Sagittarius the Centaur (November 22-December 21)

My grandpa was a Sagittarius, and boy was he a ton of fun! He always acted much younger than his age. Grandpa and I would put on magic shows for our family and he had karaoke going on all the time. He also carried around some magic tricks that he would play on everyone who would listen. He loved entertaining. This sign also loves to laugh.

Grandpa wanted to do everything and did. He started out as a cashier at White Castle and worked his way up to the top salesman for a tire supply chain through his gift of gab/love of people. Like Aries, this is another sign that lives life to the fullest.

Also like Aries, they can be a little selfish trying to convince people to do what they want to do. If you're not convinced, they sulk. Sags can also incessantly talk. Bless their hearts--they're just such social creatures.

You’ll recognize them as: they'll be in the middle of the group, egging people on to drink, sing, or dance. They are consummate charmers and are quite witty.

Of course, Sagittarius best gets along with our fellow Fire signs: Leo and Aries. They can also get along well with their fellow Mutable signs: Pisces, Virgo, and Gemini.

Their best love matches are Fire and Air signs: Aries, Leo, Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius.

Famous Sagittarius:

  • Mark Twain
  • Chrissy Teigen
  • Pablo Escobar
  • Britney Spears
  • Frank Sinatra
  • Jimi Hendrix
  • Sam Kinison
  • Ludwig von Beethoven
  • Steve Buscemi
  • Tina Turner

Capricorn the Goat (December 22-January 19)

Ever been to the petting zoo? You visit the goats and they start to eat your clothes. Then, they start moving their hooves, and shortly after, go to anyone with food. Goats are so fricking busy. These are classical Capricorns. They love work, and that's their main focus. Their brain never stops. You take them to breakfast, and they are thinking of the next twenty things they need to do. Caps aren't doing it on purpose; that's just how their brain works. They are most comfortable when they are busy.

This also means that they aren't the most emotional people. You may not want to rely on them when you are upset--find a Water or Air friend for that. You can, however, rely on them to help solve any problems you may have with their very logical brain. Capricorns also tend to have a dry sense of humor when you least expect it.

You'll recognize them as: they are the ones in the corner, either hiding behind their chatty Virgo friends or just observing. They're trying to see the soonest time they can leave. Social events aren't really their thing. Capricorns also tend to wear understated fashions--they may be trendy, but not very expressive, may not be flattering, but will more than likely be an Earth color tone.

Of course, Capricorn best gets along with their fellow Earth signs: Virgo and Taurus. They can also get along well with their fellow Cardinal signs: Cancer, Aries, and Libra.

Their best love matches are Earth and Water signs: Taurus, Virgo, Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio.

Famous Capricorn:

  • Benjamin Franklin
  • Ryan Seacrest
  • Dolly Parton
  • Richard Nixon
  • Al Capone
  • Betty White
  • Paul Revere
  • Elvis Presley
  • David Bowie
  • Howard Hughes

Aquarius the Water Bearer (January 20-February 18)

"The age of Aquarius!...AQUARIUS!".

I never understood that song. It doesn't make sense, kind of like Aquarius. Aquarius are, a little off. Clever. Unpredictable. A bit stubborn. Can have a bad temper quickly. Love to talk philosophy. Strangely enough, they seem to be a mix of the other Sun signs. They are plain unconventional and you never know what angle they are coming from. That makes them exciting. My best advice: buckle up, and hold on tight. Bring snacks and clean underwear.

Aquarius people seem to know everybody. They are the unofficial mayor of their town. Speaking of your town, these are the people on your block that have a million fork collection. They're quirky, but they're idealistic, and often involved in humanity issues. They are a great friend to have.

You'll recognize them as: they are the friend that you will never know if they will show up or not, but when they do, you'll have meaningful conversations.

Of course, Aquarius best gets along with their fellow Air signs: Gemini and Libra. They can also get along well with their fellow Fixed signs: Scorpio, Taurus, and Leo.

Their best love matches are Air and Fire signs: Gemini, Libra, Leo, Aries, and Sagittarius.

Famous Aquarius:

  • Ellen DeGeneres
  • John Hancock
  • Laura Ingalls Wilder
  • Christian Dior
  • Susan B. Anthony
  • Axl Rose
  • Sarah McLachlan
  • Tom Selleck
  • Jackie Robinson
  • Chris Farley
  • Oprah Winfrey

Pisces the Fish (February 19-March 20)

As I mentioned earlier, both of my parents are Pisces. They are wonderful people; very sensitive, open-minded, and understanding. They can also be wishy-washy, and can change their minds quickly. Don't even get me started on picking a restaurant to eat. Good lord.

Nevertheless, I've never met a sign that can read people so quickly. Pisces are so empathic, you would think they were psychic. Their sign also tends to feel pain if someone is in pain around them or can sense if something is off about you--are you in a bad mood? Do you not feel well? Expect flowers or candy the next day. They can be some of your best and thoughtful friends.

They are emotional, but this can teeter on being hot or cold. It completely depends on their mood and what's going on around them. Yes; Pisces can literally take on the stresses around them. You just may not know they are mad or stressed until they snap. Then, as quickly as they got mad, they move onto the next thing. Fish are constantly in motion, and mentally in motion are Pisces.

You'll recognize them as: they are usually wearing something that doesn't match. At. All. Mismatched patterns. Crocs with a dress. They throw clothes on without caring what other people think. It makes sense to them, so why should they care? They are also a sign that has deep conversations, and then might never speak to you again. Like fish, just when you think you have them figured out, they slip away.

Of course, Pisces best gets along with their fellow Water signs: Scorpio and Cancer. They can also get along well with their fellow Mutable signs: Sagittarius, Virgo, and Gemini.

Their best love matches are Water and Earth signs: Scorpio, Cancer, Capricorn, Virgo, and Taurus.

Famous Pisces:

  • George Washington
  • Drew Barrymore
  • Dr. Seuss
  • Nat King Cole
  • Elizabeth Taylor
  • Carrie Underwood
  • James Madison
  • Ron Howard
  • Johnny Cash
  • Karen Carpenter

In Closing

As I mentioned above, astrology is not a perfect science, just like we're not perfect beings. No matter what your sign is, we all have our own strengths and weaknesses. Please accept people for who they are. Always try to show patience and kindness. Kindness is completely free, and makes a huge difference.

We are all monkeys deep down. Yay!

        Hi Bianca,

        The Water Signs, in general, are pretty intuitive. I have no idea why. Cancers tend to want to protect their feelings, as well as Scorpio, while Pisces are a bit more of an open book. Cancers also have the tendency to take on more than they wish to take on and not ask for help because they think they can handle it. I worked closely with a Cancer and I had to literally insert myself to help because she wouldn't ask until she was frustrated. I think Cancers consider themselves the "Mama Bear" of people around them and want to take care of them. Cancers are usually naturally shy, so any outbursts seem like they're coming out of nowhere. From a Leo to a Cancer, please ask for help first. :)

        As for having characteristics similar to a Pisces, it could be a number of things, like having Pisces for parents, close friends, or family like me. You could also have a Pisces Rising sign or Pisces Moon sign in your chart. You can check out your birth chart here: https://www.astrosofa.com/horoscope/ascendant. Simply input your birthdate, time and place you were born, and this can give you a better idea of why you may have certain tendencies.

        Hi, I am a Cancer. I have a weird attraction to water. I also where pink. Coincidence? Although, I noticed that I am also like a Pisces. I thought it was weird. I can read people very well. Totally mismatched. I am also very good at hiding my emotions. People don't usually know I am stressed until I snap at them. What do I think?

        Hi Addie,

        Every friendship has its' bumps, but Air Signs and Fire Signs should typically get along pretty well. I've found that who you gravitate to as a good friend is typically what you need as a person. For example, I'm a Fire Sign and I gravitate more towards Air Signs like Gemini and Libra because I'm super stubborn and Air Signs help to distract me. Aquarius, being a Fixed Sign, in similar to Leo's in our stubbornness.

        I will say that as for you and your friend, you might gravitate to Aries because you like someone who's a little more outgoing and can't sit still. Someone who's ready to move. Both signs are known for having tempers, so be cautious of that.

        Also keep in mind where your birthdays fall. If either of you are on the cusp (please see article for explanation), that may also be something to consider. But, if you enjoy each others' company, I think that's all that matters.

        Excellent coverage of Pisces. It looks very in-depth for the other signs as well, but I can't attest to their veracity. I will add that as far as the dress is concerned, that could not be further off for me. I must match. Other Pisces that I know are very meticulous about what they wear and how they match as well. Otherwise, you are pretty accurate. Enjoyed the read. Take care. Cyndi
