The pick-up line “What's your sign?” isn't so cheesy when you know about zodiac signs. The answer can reveal to you everything from their personality, their love compatibility, their finances…even whether they're any good in bed. Since ancient times, people have learned about zodiac signs to help them succeed in their own lives and to overcome their adversaries.
Every culture has its own form of zodiac signs, some dating back thousands of years. There are Celtic zodiac signs, Egyptian zodiac signs, Mayan zodiac signs…
…but the zodiac signs you're probably familiar with are those from Western Astrology – Aries, Taurus, Pisces, and the like.
So what's your zodiac sign?
You can view all zodiac signs below. Find yours to learn more about it and yourself.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Impatience and initiative describe the Aries individual. They are confident leaders and adventurous daredevils. If you want something to get done, call an Aries. Just don't expect them to stick around until the project's done. They look at everything from their view of self: How it will benefit me? Can I have it and how?
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus individuals are patient hard workers, and can be more than a little stubborn when the mood strikes them. They are great planners and will be certain to see a project through to completion, just don't expect it to happen quickly. They are very calming and put the most uptight person at ease. They view the world from the idea of “I have”…making them very thrifty and quite the collectors.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Geminis are quite the talkers. They're very intelligent and versatile, but can be high strung. If there's something you need to know, ask a Gemini. They probably already know the answer, and if they don't, they'll find it for you in no time. Their life motto is “I think.” They process information rapidly and often focus on two or more things at a time. Their efforts to do everything for everyone can leave them spread too thin.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer individuals are nurturing and family-oriented. They provide the warm, comfortable at home feeling, but can sensitive and shy. Their motto is “I feel” because of their moodiness tendency to focus on emotions. They prefer to take a cautious approach to life, but don't let that make you think they're weak. When they need to protect themselves or a family member, their claws will come out with a vengeance.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leos love drama and being the center of attention. They're extremely loyal and generous, but have to be careful to not be bossy and self-centered. They're great at taking a leadership role, even when it'd be better for them to let another lead. Leos view the world from the concept of “I will” – what they decide to do, they do; what they decide they want, they get. A determined Leo will overcome all obstacles to reach his goal.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgos love being useful. They are exact in everything they do. Their motto for life is “I analyze,” and they will analyze and figure out every single little detail before acting and need to be careful not to let their need for perfection prevent them from taking action. Even though they can be indecisive and worriers, they are also highly adaptable with remarkable flexibility.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libras are about harmony and diplomacy. They view the world from the idea of balance, wanting everything to be fair for everyone with no arguments or disagreements. They really just want everyone to get along. Their desire for balance, however, can make them reluctant to act and easily influenced by others. But don't be overly fooled by their super nice person, they will fight when they need to, especially for the underdog.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpios can be quite intense and secretive. They're highly intuitive and psychic, and can act with a vengeance. If there's information you can't find, ask a Scorpio. They're minds work differently from others, allowing them to find the most hidden buried treasure. They will work with relentless determination until they find it too. Scorpios view the world from the concept of desire, often hypnotizing you with their sexiness.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Now we have my favorite… Sagittarius individuals are blunt and are quite blessed to be governed by the planet of luck, Jupiter, as their mouth often gets them in trouble. They're very optimistic and are the most independent and freedom loving of all signs. The Sagittarius motto is “I see” – not only does their bluntless give them a “what you see is what you get” quality, but like the archer they are, when they have a goal as a target, they aim for it.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorns are ambitious and they'll work hard to reach the highest point possible. They rise slowly, but they do get the status and prestige they want, often in later life. Because their success comes slowly, people often underestimate how competitive Capricorns are. Capricorns look at the world around them according to its usefulness – will attending the company party help them get a promotion? Is a friendship with “Mary” useful?
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Aquarius individuals love looking to the future. They can appear to be a walking contradiction – taking an unconventional approach to life while loving tradition, being stable while loving change, and being both friendly and aloof. You can usually find an Aquarius surrounded by friends or enjoying themselves at the water. Aquarians approach the world based on what they want you to know about them, making them appear quite mysterious.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisces individuals are very compassionate and focused on doing the right thing. They have to be careful to not be too trusting and gullible. They're usually indirect and will go out of their way to avoid conflict. They can be quite creative and imaginative. They view the world from their beliefs and try to see the best in everyone.
