Taurus

Taurus’ live by the phrase “slow and steady wins the race.” They’re dependable, predictable, and love to enjoy the finer things in life. Being one of the zodiac’s most sensual signs, they sincerely appreciate worldly pleasures. They aim to experience the good life, and they adore surrounding themselves with many comforts and cozy things. Whether it’s buying luxury goods or spending a day relaxing in nature, Taurus delights in creating an aesthetic and beautiful reality. Lounging and enjoying a lazy day will always win over running around town.

Grounded and stubborn, Taurus is usually even-keeled and prefers to take life moving at a slow pace. They like to take their time to think about the decisions they’ll make. And once they’ve made up their mind, there’s no getting them to change it. Taurus’ aren’t quick to anger either, but they can have an awful temper. Experiencing their rage can be shocking because they’re otherwise quite level-headed. Threatening their home, security, or someone they love is a fast way to turn this sign into a raging bull.

Gemini

Gemini

Geminis are conduits for information. They are intelligent, curious, and chatty people who enjoy gathering information about various topics. Thus, they naturally follow their curiosity, never ruminating on one topic for too long as they’re easily bored and have short attention spans. Geminis are magicians with their words, seeming to bend the truth at their will. This can make them come off as flaky or unreliable. We’ve all heard the “two-faced” stereotype. However, it could be argued that information, truth, and opinions are simply more flexible to a Gemini than they are to others. They love to engage in mental gymnastics to make situations seem in their favor.

Geminis playfully move through life with a childlike heart and a quick mind, preferring to avoid heavy and intense situations. Stagnation is the kiss of death to them, so they constantly seek mental stimulation almost as a means of survival. Like the air itself, Geminis have a way of being everywhere and nowhere all at once.

Cancer

Jupiter’s Exaltation

Cancer

Cancers are nurturing and they always make sure to provide what’s needed. Be it a hug, a place to stay, or a hot meal – They have you covered. Though they can be easily tugged along by their emotions, a lot can be learned from their ability to go with their gut and trust their instincts.

At first glance, Cancer often seems guarded or standoffish. Even if they greet you with kindness, it’s easy to sense the wall they’ve put up. Like all water signs, Cancers are naturally intuitive and connected to their emotions. Keeping people distant from the most vulnerable areas of their hearts makes them feel safe. If you can prove to a Cancer that you genuinely mean no harm, they let down their walls revealing a soft and caring soul.

The glitz and glam of a Leo is hard to miss. By simply existing, they shine a light that attracts admirers like moths to a flame. Glamourous, creative, and naturally stunning, Leo’s are known for their desire to take center stage in any situation. They know how to take the lead, and people sometimes pin them as being a bit bossy. Leos can be stubborn and prefer to do things their way. It’s nearly impossible to get them to change. However, there’s more to this sign than desiring attention and telling others what to do.

Leos are deeply compassionate, loyal, and trustworthy. They consider themselves competent leaders, ready to shoot for success and take their friends along with them. Understanding Leo is understanding their ability to fearlessly step into the most confident version of themselves and forge ahead, regardless of the thoughts and opinions of others. Because with this sign, what you see is what you get so it’s best to accept them exactly as they are.

Virgo

Virgo is a zodiac sign of service, and they always look for ways to help and support others. They approach problems methodically and patiently, not giving up until they find a solution. They’re hardworking and like to keep things in order. Some Virgos have a completely organized home, and others dwell in organized chaos. Either way, they know where everything is at all times.

Virgos are known as the “fixers” of the Zodiac. They naturally hone in on the small day-to-day actions that make a big difference in their lives and the lives of others. Being so perceptive, they’re constantly attuned to the details and intuitively understand how to make things more efficient and practical. However, focusing too much on the details gives them a perfectionist kick that might get in the way sometimes. Virgos prefer to lead with the mind and choose logic and reason while forgoing emotions. Because they’re so cerebral, they know how to keep things in motion so that they can find success in whatever they put their mind to.

Libra

Charming and flirtatious, Libra is the social butterfly of the Zodiac. They love fostering relationships in their lives and know how to make everyone around them feel comfortable and at ease. Libras love making connections, meeting new people, and growing their tribe. This air sign naturally collects friends and companions wherever they go. They are sweet and alluring, and always bring ethereal energy that’s hard to forget. Libras are fantastic conversationalists and can talk to anyone about anything.

At times, they can get lost in their relationships, but they always strive to find balance within themselves and others. Libra’s desire to please everyone might paint them as indecisive, flaky, or unsure of themselves. Sometimes they even mirror the energy and personalities of the people around them without realizing it. If Libra learns to balance their wants and needs with those of others, they make wonderful friends and partners.

Scorpio

Scorpios are incredibly passionate, emotional, fiercely intense, and driven by a forceful energy that dwells deep within their soul. Some people perceive their energy to be too over-powering, but to others, it’s magnetic. Their minds are vast and boundless, and many Scorpio natives like to keep an aura of mystery, never revealing too much about themselves to other people. They love diving deep into the mysterious realms of the unknown – where dreams and imagination come alive. All things hidden, mysterious, and taboo captivate and excite the mind of a Scorpio.

Small talk is something they find unnecessary, as they love diving deep into discussions about anything taboo. Mortality, sex, power plays, fetishes, and the occult are all topics a Scorpio would be thrilled to talk about. They love to think about and explore the infinite edges of their minds. A conversation with a Scorpio will almost always lead to an obscure subject. No conversational topic is off-limits.

Sagittarius

Sagittarians are the true free spirits of the Zodiac. They often crave new experiences and can easily adapt to many situations and embrace change. With a love for people and different cultures, Sagittarius’ ideal life includes traveling the world, trying new foods, and forming new relationships.

These natives are authentic, jovial people who hold the title for being the most benevolent of all the zodiac signs. They are highly intelligent, and usually have a strong interest in theology and philosophy. Sagittarians are passionately devoted to their values and belief systems, sometimes to the point of being self-righteous with their ideologies. Even though they like to share ideas and hear different perspectives from others, they are convinced that their philosophy is the ultimate truth. Sagittarius’ are faithful to their own beliefs and set in their ways.

Capricorns are very practical and career-driven. They are quite ambitious and can easily find success when starting new ventures.

They have many unique skills and love working at jobs where they can put their talents to good use. Whenever Capricorn puts their mind to something, they will achieve it and blow past the competition. They are diligent workers who nevertheless end up achieving some sort of success due to their relentless work ethic.

Capricorns usually refrain from small talk and gossip because they don’t like to participate in superficial conversations. They are realists through and through and will tend to take things at face value. Being a prudent earth sign, they care a lot about their public reputation and can be very strategic in how they present themselves, especially online.

Aquarius

Aquarius

Aquarians are known to have rather peculiar personalities. They are predictably unpredictable with an affinity for weirdness. Being called quirky and unusual is not uncommon for them. Originality and authenticity are something they pride themselves on as they embrace the idea of being true to themselves.

These natives feel a longing deep down in their soul to make a difference in the world. Many Aquarians are fervent activists who love being involved in groups and organizations where they can stand up for the underdog. Often dedicating themselves to noble causes, they’re always fighting for the greater good of humanity. They are passionate freedom-seekers and humanitarians who are wildly eccentric with grandiose ideas of a futuristic society. The Aquarius person is an unconventional, nonconforming hellcat determined to leave a mark on the world.

Pisces

Venus’ Exaltation
Mercury’s Debilitation

Pisces

The mysterious and elusive Pisces is the last of the twelve zodiac signs and is a mystical blend of the eleven that come before it. They are very kind, gentle, and compassionate beings who understand the depths of human emotions. Their intelligence comes from inner wisdom rather than practical knowledge. Thus, the wisdom Pisces’ carries springs up from their empathy, and they can feel everyone’s pain as if it were their own.

They are intuitive, and sensitive to their environments, noticing even the most subtle energetic changes. Pisces are highly receptive with a psychic antenna that can pick up on anything. A highly evolved Pisces listens to their gut and acknowledges psychic warnings. Having the ability to pick up on surrounding energies can often save them from undesirable situations.

Pisces are driven by faith and spiritual knowledge, so you might not understand them if you’re not on their vibrational level. Some people think they are the most difficult to interpret next to Scorpio. However, this is not necessarily true. A Pisces will relate to symbology and poetic language far better than they do straightforward communication.
