Aries

March 21 - April 19

Arians are usually stamped with the character of impatience and impulsiveness. The Ram rushes into action if they feel that the occasion calls for it. And they do feel this way quite often, sometimes causing problems to themselves or others in the process. Does this sound familiar to you?

Being the first sign of the zodiac does leave a mark on its representatives. Arians are always ready for actions and inspire others to join them. Natural leaders, Aries is not afraid of taking risks and start new adventures, discovering their true nature. With age, Arians settle down but remain youthful and energetic.

Taurus

April 20 - May 20

The most notorious stereotype about Taurus is that the representatives of this sign are too stubborn and headstrong. No matter how much effort you may take to convince a Taurean in your point of view, you are bound to get nowhere. Once they set their mind to something, they can’t be swayed.

But what’s behind this stubbornness? Some of the best qualities of Taureans are persistence and endurance. They may be slow at the beginning, but once they’ve made a plan, nothing can stop them. However, Taurus is no stranger to flexibility and can adjust their plans if they get helpful advice.

Gemini

May 21 - June 20

Gemini representatives are well-known for their numerous personalities and changes in attitude. The complex nature of the Twins can overwhelm anyone with their shifting notion of “the truth”. It’s natural for an air sign to be so changeable and open-minded. You never know when a calm breeze becomes a storm.

Gemini’s open-mindedness and inquisitiveness allow them to explore different approaches to the same thing and easily adapt to any changes. Their flexibility also gives them a great advantage when it comes to communication. Although it’s not so obvious, the real person is there. You just need to look closer.

Cancer

June 21 - July 22

Cancers are notoriously moody and oversensitive, as many people tend to think. It seems that they take everything personally, overthinking the situation which, in fact, is much simpler than they perceive it. As a result, other people quite often inadvertently hurt Cancer’s feelings.

The ruling planet of Cancer, Moon is to blame for these mood swings. The Cancerian emotional side is quite often misunderstood. Though their moods change following the cycles of the Moon, the depth of their feelings allows them to get to the core of things and understand what is hidden from less attentive observers.

Leo

July 23 - August 22

The most common stereotype about Leos is that they are too proud and egocentric. Self-absorbed, self-loving and sometimes self-obsessed are the epithets that are most often attributed to Leos. But are they truly just self-glorifying show-offs? There’s more to Leo than what lies on the surface!

The Sun, ruling planet of Leo, creates this vital need for being in the center of things. However, their generous nature makes them share their warmth and light with those who surround them. Don’t forget that the Sun is the ruler of the heart and truth. Once a Leo native is in the spotlight, everyone will get a share of their glow.

Virgo

August 23 - September 22

Virgos are often called clean and organized to the point of obsession. A Virgo absolutely has to have a perfect order at home and in life in general. A tiny stain on the dress or a book on a wrong shelf can instantly spoil their mood for the whole day. Virgo’s vision of the universe requires a solid structure.

Virgo’s calling in life is creating order out of chaos. However, in real life, it turns out that Virgos are in fact not so neat and tidy. The thing is that physical cleanliness is not the true purpose of Virgos. What they try to achieve is simplicity. After all, a well-organized world functions much more efficiently.

Libra

September 23 - October 23

The most common stereotype about Libra is that they are too indecisive. Sometimes it seems that they can never make up their minds. A Libra simply has to consider all possible options and calculate all possible outcomes before taking the final decision. Unfortunately, this doubtfulness can drive other people crazy.

Libra’s symbol, the scales, speaks for itself. Whatever decision a Libra has to take, it absolutely must be perfectly balanced and just. Naturally, to reach this perfection, Libras require a lot of time. By the time the decision is made, you can be sure that it’s to everybody’s benefit.

Scorpio

October 24 - November 22

Scorpios are too intense to most people’s taste. The most trivial and mundane situations attract too much attention of a Scorpio leading to a serious course of events. All everyone can do is wonder why they can’t just calm down, take the situation a bit lighter and leave things be.

The image of a Scorpio is related to sex, death, and the underworld, so the representatives of this sign uncover the hidden meaning which other zodiac signs fail to notice or are afraid to admit. The aim of this Scorpio’s intensity is healing and transformation from within. You can put your trust in a Scorpio’s earnestness.

Sagittarius

November 23 - December 21

The common stereotype about Sagittarians is that they are too irresponsible. Their head-in-the-clouds nature can’t handle more serious matters to the point of not being able to stick to commitments. As soon as the circumstances become complicated, Sagittarians are ready to flee the scene.

Being the most adventurous of all zodiac signs makes Sagittarius an explorer of the unknown. But to be able to expand horizons, one has to possess the freedom of mind. Once Sagittarians find a way to satisfy their needs for adventure, they can settle down and remain with one partner and in one place.

Capricorn

December 22 - January 19

According to the common stereotype, relentlessly ambitious ladder climbers, Capricorns will eat alive anyone who stands in their way. Some may say that Capricorns will stop at nothing on their way to the top of their career ladder. But is this entirely true? What hides behind this ruthless persistence?

Being a water sign with its tendency to mysticism and consciousness, Capricorn has a great potential for deep spirituality. If you look only at the surface, you’ll notice Capricorn’s concern for getting to the top. However, these astrological Goats do have a rich inner world and may turn to mystical paths.

Aquarius

January 20 - February 19

Aquarians are notoriously aloof, detached, and hyper-rational. Sometimes it seems that these living computers do not have any human feelings. Aquarians prefer to stay alone most of the time, contemplating the meaning of life and the role of humankind in it. They may even get irritated if they are distracted from this process.

Aquarians are humanitarian by nature, though they are often blamed for disliking other humans. Their rational approach to feelings is just a safety mechanism against overemotional displays. However, don’t let this deceive you. Aquarians feel deeply, but they don’t always let others see what they truly feel.

Pisces

February 20 - March 20

According to a common stereotype, Pisceans are well-known absent-minded dreamers. It doesn’t matter how many times you call them to come back to earth they will continue building their air castles. For some Pisceans, mundane earthly life may even seem too harsh and dull.

Pisceans have a special purpose in life to overcome the banality of life. Their imagination and intuition help them see what others cannot. The representatives of the Pisces zodiac sign are especially knowledgeable of other people’s thoughts and emotions, which most of the signs are devoid of.
