The study of astrology has given us a fascinating insight into the 12 signs of the zodiac. Each has an individual approach to life with commonly associated personality traits – with their own unique strengths and weaknesses.
And though you might have once only paid attention to your zodiac sign for two mins when you got to the horoscopes about your love life at the end of a magazine, they’re not up front and centre (and totally accepted!) in so much of how we live our lives.
Whether you rely on your star sign to guide you toward love, use it to help you figure out problems or understand yourself and your friends more fully, or just find in interesting to compare yourself against other people with your star sign, they’re a pretty useful tool in helping us make the most of ourselves, and, crucially, accept those parts of ourselves that we’ve perhaps wrestled with for far too long.
So, ever wondered what your zodiac sign says about you? We’ve got everything you need to know…
Although, it is worth noting before we begin, that every star sign is a powerful, vital piece in the puzzle that is the zodiac. The four elements — air signs, fire signs, water signs, earth signs — all work together to create a comprehensive whole, which shows up in your life as your unique personality traits. Every sign is illuminated by its own point of view, complete with powerful strengths and exhausting weaknesses, and we need every single one of them (and us) to keep life fruitful and interesting.
Now, that’s enough from us, we’ll let you get down to the juicy bits.
21st March – 19th April
You are a natural born leader. Ruled by Mars (the god of War), it’s probably no surprise that you’re known for being ballsy and pioneering.
You’re tenacious and don’t get scared. You like to take risks, try new experiences and get an adrenaline rush. Sure, it might mean that things don’t always go your way, but it also makes you passionate and full of fire. If there’s one thing you’re not, Aries, it’s boring.
Your fire element is what makes you so energetic and creative, and thanks to being first in the zodiac, you don’t fixate on the past. No regrets. Your optimism and hope makes you caring and generous. You’re a good pal, Aries.
20th April – 20th May
This is one of the most reliables signs, known for being stable, reliable and devoted. Your friends are important to you and, once you get close with someone, you are fiercely loyal.
