11 Weird & Fascinating Things You Never Knew About Your Zodiac Sign
If you're into astrology, you might know (and kind of love) the basics about your sign. As a Scorpio, you probably know all about the "mystery" and "sexiness" or your sign. And if you're a Pisces, you may appreciate the fact your sign has a "creative side." But I bet there are some weird and fascinating facts for your zodiac sign that you don't know.
This is what's so fun about astrology. Sure, the stars can help guide you in your love life, or point you in the direction of a spicier sex life. Checking your horoscope might even be a factor in a small career decision. But sometimes, it's fun to look up your sign just for the hell of it in order to learn more about what makes you "you."
If you've ever done it, isn't it funny how perfectly the traits seem to match your personality? Whether you know a lot about horoscopes and check them daily, or just research the zodiac for fun, it's hard to deny how spookily spot on the traits can be.
Read on below for some more fun facts, like how Pisces love lucky number seven, or that Geminis are the sign most likely to win the Nobel Prize. Whether the info helps guide you in life, or is simply something to talk about parties, there's no denying zodiac signs are super entertaining.
Aquarius (January 19-February 18)
If you were born under the Aquarius sign, then I bet you're known for your fierce independence. But did you know your sign might also explain why you're always freezing? In a totally unrelated fun fact, Aquarius people tend to have perpetually cold hands and feet. That's because, as astrologer and Feng Shui expert Donna Stellhorn says, "Aquarius rules circulation in the body." It may explain your lifelong desire to turn the heat up.
Pisces (February 18-March 20)
Pisces are creative AF and usually dabble in the arts or work in an artistic field. They also, according to Brook Belong on OdysseyOnline.com, find luck with the number seven. Have you noticed a trend with sevens following you around? Maybe you look constantly look at your watch at 7:07? If so, "it can indicate good timing for scholarly or adventurous endeavors," Belong said.
Aries (March 20-April 19)
Aries, a sign known for its confidence and courage, fosters a lot of of natural born leaders. One thing many of them have in common, as a result, is a scar on their forehead. As Stellhorn says, "Aries often have a scar on their head or face because Aries children tend to rush forward into every new experience. This leads to literal head injuries." If you're an Aries, go ahead and check for any Harry Potter-esque marks.
Taurus (April 19-May 20)
If you're a Taurus, you're likely a very practical and responsible person. And what does that often go hand in hand with? Well, apart from your ability to actually do your laundry and pay bills on time, you're also likely very good with money. In fact, as Stellhorn says, "Taurus rules money and surveys show the Taurus natives are more likely to earn more than 100K a year." Get it, get it.
Gemini (May 20-June 20)
As a Gemini, you're probably already aware of your ability to learn quickly, adapt, and exchange ideas. But did you know Geminis are the sign most likely to win prizes for their smarts? "Gemini rules thinking and more Nobel Prize winners are Gemini by percentage," Stellhorn says. Go you!
Cancer (June 20-July 22)
Cancers are loyal, tenacious, and highly emotional people mentally. But they have some telling physical traits, too. "Cancer natives are ruled by the Moon and tend to have round, moon-like faces," Stellhorn says. Pretty cute, right?
Leo (July 22-August 22)
Hey Leo, you already know that you're super creative and passionate. But have you ever used that to your advantage in your career? If not, you may want to give it a try. "Leos love to put on a show and traditionally make the best salespeople," Stellhorn says. Just a fun fact that may earn you some extra bucks.
Virgo (August 22-September 22)
Virgo, you are super hardworking, analytical, and practical. And you know it. So your fun fact may not come as much of a surprise. But, as Stellhorn tells me, you and your fellow Virgos have always been the highest achieves in school. Since you know how to study (and always study hard) you're almost always the top of your class.
Libra (September 22-October 23)
As a Libra, you probably already know that you're the most cooperate, fair-minded, and social of the Zodiac. But did you know that Libra is also the sign of beauty? As Stellhorn tells me, Libras often have a dimple on their cheek as a result. Adorbs.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Scorpios are the most passionate of all the signs, often feeling the feels in every aspect of their life — relationships, work, hobbies, etc. But Scorpios also have a physical trait that sets them apart, Stellhorn tells me. This is a widow's peak. You know, the triangular point of hair that comes down in the center of the forehead, kind of like Wednesday Addams. So chic.
Sagittarius (November 21-December 22)
As far as signs go, none are more generous or idealistic than the Sagittarius. And none have an oval face quite like Sagittarius, either. As Stellhorn tells me, this has to do with Sagittarius ruling the horses, which (of coures) have long faces. How cute is that?
Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
Lucky you, Capricorn. Not only are you responsible and disciplined, but you're also the sign most likely to look young for a long, long time, Stellhorn tells me. That's because Capricorn rules aging, so go ahead and enjoy your youthfulness.
See what I mean? Isn't the zodiac fun? So many fun facts, so little time.
