What does your zodiac sign say about you? Aries: March 21 – April 19

The first sign of the zodiac, Aries loves to be number one.

Bold and ambitious, it’s symbolised by the ram because of Aries’ braveness and ability to climb to the top of the mountain no matter what.

A fire sign, Aries are warm, lovable and adorable. However, like a ram, they crash, bang, wallop their way through life, demanding that they finish first.

They’re courageous, determined, confident, enthusiastic, honest and passionate.

However, they’re also moody, short-tempered impulsive, aggressive, easily bored and impatient.

Patience is a strength Aries could do with learning, and self-control also isn’t their strongest point.

Symbolised by the twins, Gemini – a water sign – are the Peter Pan of the zodiac.

Known for their duality, versatility and curious nature, Geminis have a secret super power when it comes to their perceptiveness.

They’re gentle, affectionate, adaptable and learn quickly. They could also talk to anyone about anything.

On the downside Geminis are nervous, inconsistent and indecisive. They’re also afraid of being alone and tend to have lots of friends and are rarely without a companion.

They understand other people well and they’re the most loyal and giving sign of the zodiac.

However, never cross a Cancer as they know how to hold a grudge – they’ll forgive but they won’t forget.

They can also be moody, pessimistic, suspicious, manipulative and insecure.

Cancers are often weighed down by their own sorrows and frequently haunted by grief, but they’ll keep it to themselves – it’s hard for them to open up and share with others.

Always entertaining, creative, passionate, generous, warm-hearted, cheerful and humorous, Leos are a joy to be around.

That is until you meet them on a bad day and you’ll get an arrogant, vain, stubborn, self-centred lion.

They’re pretty hard on themselves though and often have a secret inner critic making Virgos deep, complicated people.

They’re shy, they worry a lot and they bottle up their inner angst and turmoil.

What does your zodiac sign say about you? Libra: September 23 – October 22

Libras are all about balance and, as a result, they’re symbolised by the scales.

These air signs like everything to be kept on an even keel, but they’re also charming, flirtatious, clever, beautiful and people-pleasing.

However, that perfect exterior hides inner tension which can see Librans procrastinate, struggle to commit and shapeshift to avoid conflict and stress.

They hate being alone, want everyone to get along and avoid conflict as a result.

Librans are also indecisive but social creatures – so if you fancy a night out, just make sure you book the restaurant!

Scorpio: October 23 – November 21

Much like its spirit animal, Scorpio the scorpion is a sign with a sting in its tail.

A water sign, Scorpios are strong, powerful, independent and ruthless.

They know what they want and they’ll go out of their way to get it.

They’re passionate, intense and expect total loyalty. Don’t cross them – or you’ll feel their full wrath when they go for revenge.

Private and guarded, Scorpios like to ask all the questions – but it’ll be a no comment when the tables are turned on them.

What does your zodiac sign say about you? Sagittarius: November 22 – December 21

Sagittarius are symbolised by the archer because they aim high, love the outdoors and enjoy the thrill of the chase.

A true fire sign, Sagittarius is known as the zodiac’s verbal hooligan – they say whatever springs to mind and they have no inside voice.

They say what others are thinking but they get away with it because they’re friendly, funny and there isn’t a malicious bone in their bodies.

Sagittarians are fun, playful, energetic and love their freedom – and they’re also the luckiest sign of the zodiac.

They’re the life and soul of any party, and the friendliest, most welcoming person there too.

However, catch them on a bad day and you’ll find they can be impatient, they promise more than they can deliver – and are perpetually restless thanks to an insatiable hunger for knowledge.

Wise beyond their years, they’re an old soul in a young body, they love responsibility and come equipped with a can-do attitude.

However, they can be materialistic, unforgiving, condescending and they fact that they expect the worst can be draining to those around them.

Often classed as workaholics, Capricorns are motivated by duty and, as a result, repress any emotion that’ll get in the way of success.

The truth will out for Aquarius (Credit: Pixabay)

What does your zodiac sign say about you? Aquarius: January 20 – February 18

Symbolised by the water bearer, Aquarius is actually an air sign.

Instead the water here symbolises truth – something Aquarians aren’t shy in telling anyone who’ll listen.

They’re often an eccentric enigma, a contradiction of themselves.

Outgoing and friendly on one hand while also closed-off and private.

They love people but need their own space.

They’re assertive and confident when it comes to their own views, but can seem aloof when it comes to listening to opinions of others.

They’re clever, innovative, idealistic humanitarians, but they’re also temperamental, uncompromising and always feels like a bit of an outcast.

Pisces: February 19 – March 20

The final sign of the zodiac, Pisces is symbolised by two fish tied to one another, swimming in opposite directions.

Typically Pisceans are plagued by both conflicting desires and extremes of temperament and constantly swim through shifting emotional currents.

A water sign, Pisces are romantic, soulful, intuitive and feel everything more than any other sign of the zodiac.

As a result they find the world a cruel place to be at times.

However, because it’s the last sign of the zodiac, Pisceans possess a little of each of the other 11 signs’ traits.

They’re wise, understanding, compassionate, artistic, gentle and romantic.

They can be overly trusting, fearful, prone to melancholy, feel like everything just has to be a sign and have a strong desire to sometimes escape reality.

Their behaviour also changes significantly depending on who they’re around.
