Astrology aficionados know that being hyper sensitive, wanting to be the star of the show, or being obsessively organized is written in the stars. The single most unique thing about you according to your sign is likely something you already accept as an integral part of your personality. But, if you're not that into astrology, then you might not know that some of your personality traits are pre-determined based on what zodiac sign you were born under.
In grad school, I had a professor who was both a Libra and a musician. Libras are known for being incredibly indecisive because they want to make sure everyone is happy before they make a decision. This can lead to a lot of hemming and hawing, which is super frustrating for other signs who just want to get on with it already. She said that she was once in a band where all of the members were also Libras, and the band never got off the ground because no one would step forward and take charge. None of the Libras wanted to risk making the wrong decision and risk potentially alienating the other members. You can see the problem here.
Each sign has unique traits that are complemented by differing traits of other signs. And, this is the single most unique thing about you according to your zodiac sign.
1. Aries Is A Trendsetter For The Rest Of The World
Fire-sign Aries is the first sign in the zodiac, so it's no surprise that this sign sets the pace for everyone else. Case-in-point, Aries-born signer, songwriter, actor, and performance artist Lady Gaga. "Courageous and competitive, this sign of the Ram is a powerful force, carving paths through new territory to find undiscovered treasures," Tarot.com noted. Aries is usually thinking 10 steps ahead of everyone else, which means while they're known as natural-born leaders and trailblazers, some of their ideas can seem pretty kooky at first. This is only because other people haven't caught up with Aries yet.
2. Taurus Will Win Any Standoff No Matter What
If you ever get into a competition with a Taurus, it's best to know what you're in for first. The Bull, known for being stubborn and determined, won't back down no matter what. Just like Tom Petty sang, they'll stand their ground. Taurus can outlast anyone in anything so they're definitely the person you want on your side during the zombie apocalypse. "Stubborn Taurus never gives up and always holds their ground — even when they're wrong," according to Tarot.com.
3. Gemini Can Have Meaningful Convos With Themselves
The extroverted Gemini never stops talking, even if there is no one to talk to. The Twins' duality makes it easy for them to have conversations with anyone, or if no one is around, with themselves. Gemini has no trouble asking and answering their own questions. "As the most talkative sign of the zodiac, the Twins are known to be social, and are always on the lookout for a good time," Tarot.com noted. "Listening is not Gemini's strong suit, nor is sitting still." Basically, Gemini is so chatty that they often don't take time to hear what others are saying. They like to hear themselves talk, but are less interested in other people's responses to their constant chatter.
4. Cancer Loves To Be In Love
If you have a friend who falls in love fast and hard, like on the first date, that person is likely a Cancer. "Tenaciously loyal and loving, Cancers are the nurturers of the zodiac, and will fiercely protect themselves and anything they hold dear," Tarot.com explained. Once a Cancer falls in love with someone, they will do all of the things other signs might find cliché like shower you with candy and flowers on your one-week anniversary, or ask you to slow dance in the kitchen. The difference is that Cancer really means it, and to be loved by a Cancer is to be loved deeply and fiercely, which can feel suffocating to some independent signs.
5. Leo Is The Star Of Every Show
For limelight loving Leo, all the world is a stage and Leo is the star. "The charming, magnificent, and dramatic Lion is the life of the party and loves attention," Tarot.com noted. "Leo just wants to love and be loved." While Leo loves to be center stage, they're no solo act and need their entourage to truly enjoy themselves. Leo is so fun to be around that most people don't mind letting Leo run the show because they know that life with Leo is always exciting and brings unexpected delights.
6. Virgo Will Survive The Zombie Apocalypse
In many ways, analytical Virgo is like a computer. "One of Virgos' strongest abilities is to take in a wealth of information, and pick out only what’s important and useful," Tarot.com explained. This ability in particular makes Virgo able to walk into any situation, assess what is wrong, and try to fix it. While this is great if you want something fixed, it can be off putting for people who don't appreciate Virgos' hypercritical fix-it tendencies. Virgos' fixer personality will serve them well if they're trying to survive in a horror movie, or on The Walking Dead. However, IRL Virgo is best served by only trying to fix things when asked.
7. Don't Ask Libra Where To Go For Dinner
If you've ever been in line behind someone at Starbucks who just can't decide between a Pumpkin Spice Latte or a Green Tea Matcha, that person was likely a Libra. "Because Libra sees both sides of every situation, they have trouble making up their minds and can waffle when it comes to decision-making," Tarot.com noted. Never ask a Libra where they want to dinner because they will answer, "I don't know, where do you want to go?" Because Libra always puts others' needs before their own, they aren't going to be the one to decide, which can sometimes lead to Libra feeling like they're giving too much even though it's a trap of their own design. "We know how much you love to please others, but don't forget to fulfill your own needs once in awhile, too," Tarot.com advised.
8. Scorpio Draws People To Them Like A Magnet
Scorpio is that person who can walk into a room and have complete strangers enamored with them for absolutely no reason. This is not something Scorpio is consciously doing, it's just they way they're made. "Scorpio is passionate and intense, with a magnetic personality that draws us in," Tarot.com explained. "Sometimes it feels like they can see right into your soul." Deep, thoughtful, and mysterious, Scorpio has a star quality, though unlike Leo they don't need to be the center of attention. Scorpio is much more interested in digging below the surface of things to find the truth in people, and many people are so captivated by this sign that they might find themselves confessing their darkest secrets.
9. Sagittarius Likes To Choose Their Own Adventure
Sagittarius is carefree and always up for any adventure. If you go on a last minute road trip, a Sagittarius is the person you want by your side. "Sagittarius is on the hunt for the biggest, best experiences life has to offer," Tarot.com noted. "With a love of adventure and all things exotic, the worldly Archer just wants to soak it all in. Sagittarius is driven by a constant need to explore and expand its mind, heart, and awareness to the fullest extent." While the phrase "live life to the fullest" might sound cliché, for Sagittarius this saying is totally true, and they don't know how to live any other way.
10. Capricorn Is More Successful Than Everyone Else
You know those people who become brain surgeons, astronauts, or Olympic athletes while also doing eleventy million other things and drinking tequila every night? Those people are Capricorns. "You can always find Capricorn at the top of the heap," Tarot.com explained. "The Mountain Goat combines its traditional methods with powerful determination to climb the ladder of success each and every day." With enough energy for work and play, Capricorn always succeeds in whatever they put their minds to.
11. Aquarius Could Be A Cult Leader
OK, I am not saying Aquarius uses their talents for nefarious endeavors, but they certainly could if they wanted to. "When this rebellious sign isn’t satisfied with the way things are, they’re experts at garnering the support they need to instigate change," Tarot.com noted. "Ruled more by the head than the heart, Aquarius’ brilliant ideas and visionary plans inspire us all to raise the bar in our everyday lives." A good-hearted Aquarius is someone who is likely organizing a march or circulating a petition to get the city to start collecting neighborhood compost. Aquarius' aura makes people want to follow them, which is why if they decided to start a cult, they'd have no problem recruiting loyal followers and convincing then to drink poison punch so they can fly away on an alien spaceship.
12. Pisces Is A Magical, Mystical Enigma
The pensive fish is the most likely of all the sign to invite you to something you've never heard of like a sound bath or crystal healing ceremony. "Dreamy, sensitive, and spiritual Pisces is drawn to all things mystical," Tarot.com noted. "Driven by its intuition and strongly connected to the spiritual world, the sign of the Fishes knows how to balance cold, hard reality with the warmth of love and understanding." While you might think it's strange to get a reading from a medical intuitive, or to enroll in Shaman school, this is totally normal to Pisces. It's worth taking a trip into Pisces' world, because if you're going to venture into the mystical, Pisces is the sign to have by your side.
