What Your Zodiac Sign Says About Your Personality

Whether you believe in astrology or not, the fact still remains that most of us are pretty interested (if not fascinated) in what the stars have to reveal for each of our signs. Like why are some of us patient and others are short tempered? You may not be able to prove this scientifically, but the stars usually, eerily, have the answers that explain a lot of who we are and how we act. Does your zodiac sign match or explain who you are?

Aries March 21 – April 19

This is the sign of the ram and boy, do they ever ram. People born under this sign are born leaders but they can be a little immature, too. They’re hot-headed but at least they never mince words and you always know where you stand with them. Famous Aries celebs include Marlon Brando, Reese Witherspoon and Diana Ross.

Taurus April 20 – May 20

This is the sign of the bull and true to form, they’re some of the most stubborn people in the zodiac. On the other hand, they’ll be the first ones to give you the shirts off their backs and they’ll always be there for you. Celebs born under the sign include David Beckham, George Clooney and Cher.

Gemini May 21 – June 20

This is the sign of the twins. Because of this split persona, Geminis can often see both sides to any argument and have difficulty choosing a side. They’re all at once sparkly, Mercurial, fascinating and deep-thinking, but they can also be hard to pin down and very indecisive for this reason. Geminis have a natural ability to attract many different people with many different personalities. Famous Geminis include Mark Wahlberg, Angelina Jolie and Kanye West.

Cancer June 21 – July 22

This is the sign of a crab. People born under this sign are deeply sensitive, sympathetic, caring and relish their alone time. They can be moody, but once you gain their trust, you’ll be considered family for life. Celebs born under the sign of the crab include Benedict Cumberbatch, Meryl Streep and Sofia Vergara.

Leo July 23 – August 22

Leo is the sign of lion in all his kingly glory. Leos are magnetic and charming, and also powerful and headstrong. Very little stops them from getting what they want, and they generally love being the center of attention. Notable celebs include former president Barack Obama, Madonna and Mick Jagger.

Virgo August 23 – September 22

Virgo is the sign of the virgin. Those born under this sign are deep thinkers and very analytical. They are very particular in ways they live their lives (generally frugally), keep their homes (very neat) and maintain their friendships (very deeply). Famous Virgos include Freddie Mercury, Michael Jackson and Bill Murray.

Libra September 23 – October 22

Libra is the sign of the scales. They take the longest times to make decisions because they feel the need to weigh all possibilities before coming to a conclusion. They are not rash in nature and love balance and beauty. They also love the idea of being in love and sometimes have trouble maintaining long-term relationships. Famous Libras include Susan Sarandon, Eminem and Kate Winslet.

Scorpio October 22 – November 21

Scorpio is the sign of the scorpion. Scorpios are extremely sensitive, intense thinkers who can be reclusive. They hold grudges but love challenges and deep-rooted relationships. Their personalities can be bold and it’s rare that a Scorpio is ever a wallflower. Famous Scorpios include Timothy B. Schmit, Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Gosling.

Sagittarius November 22 – December 21

Sagittarius is the sign of the archer. When you think of sagittarians, consider the song “Don’t Fence Me In.” These fiery personalities don’t do well with people trying to control them or dominate their lives. Freedom is what they know and love and it’s best that they thrive without constriction. Celebs born under the sign include Jay-Z, Katie Holmes and Brad Pitt.

Capricorn December 22 – January 19

Capricorn is represented by a mountain goat. Those born under the sign are practical, genuine, sympathetic, reliable, and loving. Notable Capricorns include former First Lady Michelle Obama, Kate Middleton and Annie Lennox.

Aquarius January 20 – February 18

Aquarius is the sign of the water bearer. Aquarians are extremely sociable and are also known as great communicators. Think of Mr. Spock’s profound words “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few…outweigh the needs of the one.” Famous Aquarians include Tom Hiddleston, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Jennifer Aniston.

Pisces February 19 – March 20

Pisces is the sign of the fish. Its natives are often described as being deep, soulful artistic old souls who haven’t got a mean bone in their bodies or a mean word on their tongues. Notable Pisceans include Andy Gibb, Daniel Craig and George Harrison.

Believe it or don’t believe it. You can’t escape the cool (and sometimes not-so-cool) traits that each sign holds.
