Everyone is unique in their own way and just because you share the same zodiac sign with someone else does not mean that you are exactly like the other person. The traits attributed to each sign manifest themselves in different ways depending on the person. There are also multiple factors in the zodiac world that influence a person's personality traits such as your moon sign which represents your emotions, your inner mood. Your rising sign, also known as your ascendant, represents the way others see you. Your Venus sign rules the way you handle your romantic life and social appeal while your Mars sign influences your animal instincts for aggression, anger, and survival. You sun sign (your main sign) represents your overall zodiac personality. Even though there are all of these factors that can influence your personality, there are still many outside forces that cause these traits to manifest themselves in different ways. If two people have the same birth chart, they can still be very different in many different ways.
Each zodiac sign is known for certain traits but there is a lot more to each sign that you might not realize. For example, Leos are known for having big egos but they are also desperate to be loved and their egos usually cover up the fact that they are sensitive and fragile deep down inside. Another example is that Aries are known for being competitive but only because they love to be challenged and they would rather lose to a worthy adversary than win against an unskilled player. Each sign is complicated and unique and there are qualities about each one that separates you from the other signs.
15 Aries: Through Thick and Thin
Aries are known for being daring, adventurous, energetic, impatient, proud, egotistical, positive, passionate, aggressive, sensitive, ambitious, vain, and occasionally selfish. These are qualities that can be found in various other signs but the one trait that truly sets an Aries apart is their loyalty. While Virgos and Capricorns are known for being dependable and loyal to their friends, the loyalty of an Aries is a whole different ballgame. Because Aries is a fire sign, their loyalty is fiery. Aries are known for being passionate and that quality can come out in many ways. Aries love to love and when they found someone who they feel deserves their love, it is hard for them to let go of that person which means that they are loyal almost to a fault. If you're lucky enough to get an Aries to love you, they will love you unconditionally. Just remember to not take their loyalty for granted!
14 Taurus: Natural Born Hustler
Taurians are known for being smart, ambitious, consistent, trustworthy, down to earth, patient, persistent, independent, generous, self-reliant, impatient, honest, stubborn, distrustful, and reliable. While many other signs are known for being ambitious such as Aries and Capricorns, Taurians are possibly the most subtly ambitious of all the signs because of their belief that slow and steady wins the race. Any Taurus will tell you that, in order to be successful, you need to have a good work ethic and resilience is key. Taurians never back down from a challenge and their relentless drive to be successful will always be able to carry them across the finish line--even if it takes years to get there. Unlike Arians, Taurians are able to start a project and follow it through until the very end and instead of looking for fame and status, Taurians look for comfort and financial stability.
13 Gemini: Sharp Wit
Everyone knows that Gemini are talkative, creative, outgoing, versatile, enthusiastic, superficial, indecisive, inconsistent, charming, extroverted, unreliable, curious (also nosy), charismatic, impulsive, persuasive (occasionally manipulative), noncommittal, and two-faced. Gemini are considered to be mysterious because of their double-sided personality and one thing you might not know about Gemini is that they are also very quick-witted and clever. Gemini have the ability to be good communicators as long as they remember that they need to listen occasionally instead of constantly talking. Once they can hone the ability to communicate, they can engage people in very interesting and amusing conversations. It may be hard to keep up with their train of thought but if you can, you will find them to be hilarious. Because of their outgoing nature, they are easily one of the most charismatic and magnetic signs and they never go anywhere where they're not the life of the party.
12 Cancer: Heart of Gold
Cancers are often described as the most emotional and sensitive of all the zodiac signs. They are known to be introverted, artistic, faithful, family-oriented, loyal, protective creative, persistent, faithful, resentful, unforgiving, intuitive, moody, and occasionally clingy. Though they are often given a bad rap for being overly sensitive, it is their sensitivity that causes them to be intensely compassionate. They hate feeling unloved, unwanted, uncared for, and taken advantage of so when they see other people experiencing these things, they want to protect them and take care of them. They are incredibly empathetic and are the sign that is most likely to listen to you talk about your problems--don't expect that from a Gemini! Your Cancer friend will always be there to listen to you if you're having a bad day and they will know just what to do to comfort you--just make sure that you're there for them as well!
11 Leo: Mixed Emotions
Leos are generally considered the most arrogant and egotistical of all the signs--even more so than Gemini, Aries, or Aquarius but they are egotistical in other ways. However, their ego is often used as a cover-up to hide their sensitivity and fragility. Besides being egotistical, outgoing, charming, communicative, energetic, playful, competitive, aggressive, image-oriented, melodramatic, stubborn, and pretentious, they have a soft underbelly that they try to hide with their charisma and over-inflated ego. This, however, is not necessarily a bad thing, in fact it makes them much less intimidating. Because they have a tendency to be secretly sensitive, they are also honest and loyal friends with a big heart that is always full of love to give. They may be good at hiding their emotions but once they learn to accept their feelings and sensitivity, they can let go of their tough-guy persona and let people into their life.
10 Virgo: A Smart Cookie
Because they are both earth signs, Virgos are very similar to Taurians--but there are also a few key differences. Both are practical and reliable perfectionists but Virgos are much more overly critical but they also can be a bit more spontaneous. However, the trait that sets them apart from the rest of the signs is their braininess. This does not necessarily mean that they are exclusively interested in scholarly pursuits and they don't like to learn just for the same of learning. Instead, they simply have a passion for learning about specific subjects that interest them. They are natural born problem solvers and are often irritated with people who they see as stupid or incompetent. They are possibly the most emotional of the three earth signs which allows them to be reliable and consistent while also having a bit of a wild side. It's the best of both worlds!
9 Libra: Pretty Popular
Libras are known for being the most idealistic zodiac sign but there are also known for being laid-back, observant, skeptical, persuasive, romantic, charming, optimistic, spontaneous, clever, flirtatious, calculated, open-minded, indecisive, unreliable, superficial, and sometimes detached. However, their tendency to come across as aloof makes them incredibly mysterious, intriguing, and magnetic. In other words, they are very popular. They may only have one or two people who are close to them but they generally have a wide group of casual friends who all love to be around the Libra. Like Gemini and Leos, they are natural born communicators and they love stimulating conversations, however, they have a genuine love of creating a connection with people and tendency to get lost in conversation which is sets them apart from the other signs. Despite their flaws, Libras are definitely the coolest people to be around.
8 Scorpio: Up Close and Personal
Scorpios get a bad rap for being sneaky and manipulative but they deserve more credit than that. They are also focused, ambitious, intuitive, intense, clever, mysterious, suspicious, hot-tempered, unforgiving, reserved, seductive, observant, independent, resentful, and full of secrets. They are generally known for being secretive because they have a tendency to hold their cards close to their chest. This is because they have trouble trusting people and don't want to be used or manipulated. Because they often reserve their love and affection for people they deem worthy of it, their love is incredibly strong and they are able to form emotional and intimate connections with people. They are generally the kinds of people who comes across as standoffish and even rude--until you get to know them, that is. Once you become friends with a Scorpio, you will learn that they are actually incredibly kind, thoughtful, and friendly!
7 Sagittarius: Bursting With Joy
Of the three fire signs, Sagittarius is the most laid-back and free-spirited but they are much more than that. They are also intellectual, philosophical, adventurous, optimistic, honest, independent, tactless, restless, impatient, sometimes careless, ruthless, and isn't afraid to take risks. They are not as aggressive or as ambitious as the other fire signs and they enjoy rolling with the punches and they are open to whatever life has in store for them. Their adventurous nature allows them take risks and to follow their heart and this requires a lot of optimism which the Sagittarius has plenty of. They always believe that something better is just around the corner and they have no trouble dropping everything to chase a dream. They hate when people tell them how to live their life and they will cut people out of their social circles if they feel like they are negative in any way. Saggitarians have a positive energy that follows them wherever they go.
6 Capricorn: If There's a Will, There's a Way
Like the other earth signs, Capricorns are practical, patient, and dependable but there are a few traits that make them different than the Taurus and the Virgo. Capricorns are known for being ambitious, wise, patient, unforgiving, clever, detached, moody, fluent, sarcastic, loyal, and they generally have the tendency to overthink everything. However, what sets them apart from the other signs is their ability to remain strong-willed and resolute even things go wrong. Capricorns have their own set of beliefs and morals and they are unlikely to ever change their beliefs. One thing that they all believe in is themselves. Capricorns have the kind of confidence that a Leo could only dream of. They have a high opinion of themselves that can never be shaken and though it may sometimes come across as arrogance, it is really just confidence. Capricorns are naturally ambitious and they know without a doubt that they will reach their goals.
5 Aquarius: That's the Spirit
Like Libras, Aquarians are naturally cool and popular but they are much more eccentric and unpredictable. The Aquarius marches to the beat of their own drum and they don't just try to be unique and eccentric--they are just naturally unique and eccentric. They are generally curious, imaginative, frank (sometimes to a fault), independent, misunderstood, rebellious, innovative, hot-tempered, unconventional, distant, opinionated, and sometimes just downright weird. Because they are drawn toward the abstractions of life and they enjoy thinking outside the box, they are naturally philosophical and spiritual. They are free and independent thinkers who don't just believe whatever someone tells them. They like to make their own decisions and come to their own conclusions and their imaginative spirit and open-mindedness allows them to believe in the more fantastical and spiritual parts of life.
4 Pisces: Love-Dovey
Pisces may be known for being imaginative, intuitive, enigmatic, emotional, spiritual, adaptable, friendly, indecisive, artistic, creative, honest, competitive, sensitive, and faithful--but there is much more than meets the eye. However, they have a tendency to be a little out of touch with reality and they can sometimes confuse movies and books with real life. This is what makes them so romantic and desperate for romance, love, and passion in their lives. They expect their partner to romance them daily and they are likely to dump them if they feel like they are not getting the attention and love that they deserve. They just want to be loved and feel loved! Their love of romance can be both a strength and a weakness because it can be hard for their partners to live up to their high expectations but it's their idealism that makes them so unique and endearing.
3 Aries: Take the Initiative
Though are plenty of other traits belonging to each sign that helps to set them apart from the other signs but there are a few signs which contain a bit more mystery than the rest. Take Aries for example, they are often viewed as aggressive, short-tempered, and confrontational. They may not be known for their fierce loyalty but they are definitely the ride-or-die type. They are also incredibly resourceful and have no problem taking initiative. When an Aries wants something, they go for it--and they usually get what the want in the end. They are natural born flirts who will stop at nothing to get their crush to notice them--and they usually get them in the end. They are probably the most impatient of all of the other zodiac signs and they don't like to play games when it comes to relationships. If they like someone, they'll make sure that they know about it because life is just too short for an Arian.
2 Libra: They Make Their Own Decisions
Being skeptical may sound bad but it is more of a strength than a weakness when it comes to the Libra. Libras don't rely on gossip and hearsay because they would much rather rely on the things they see with their own two eyes and hear with their own two ears. They have a tendency to distrust people which is what gives them their aloof quality that makes them so magnetic and mysterious. Libras rarely jump into relationships (romantic or platonic) until they see that these relationships have the potential to be meaningful and long-term. They never settle for the first person who shows interest. Though the skepticism is often a good thing, it also makes them more detached than the other signs and they eventually need to realize that not everyone is out to get them. Though, to a Libra, it's better to keep your guard up 24/7 than to get hurt.
1 Aquarius: They Can See Right Through You
Aquarians are maybe the most mysterious of all the zodiac signs because they have a tendency to be in their own little world that only they can truly understand. But while you may not be able to understand them, they are definitely able to understand you. This is because Aquarians are naturally intuitive and they can tell right away whether they like someone or dislike them--though they like almost everybody. However, the kinds of people that Aquarians absolutely hate are the kinds of people who are egotistical and self-centered. They can tell almost instantly if a person is arrogant and they have no problem with cutting them out of their life completely. Aquarians like to maintain a positive energy and if anyone threatens their positivity, they will tell them to take a hike. However, if you can manage to get inside an Aquarian's inner circle, you should count yourself as very lucky.
