Every zodiac sign has their quirks, their flaws and their outstanding qualities. Your Sun sign – otherwise usually known as your star sign – is a great indicator of your basic personality traits. Your Sun’s astrological sign is how you express yourself, how you show up in the world and what you have to offer.
You could even say that your Sun sign tells you more about why you are here – your purpose in life. Your unique personality traits, strengths and weaknesses are all tools that can help or hide you in your journey. So, you’re an intense Scorpio? You’d be a great therapist. Or maybe you’re a loving Libra – relationships are your forte.
Here’s more on what makes you, uniquely, you:
Typical Zodiac Traits of An Aries:
The first of the zodiac signs, you’re a firebrand ready to blaze a trail and leap into the unknown! Dynamic and impulsive, you’re a warm, confident energy - though you can be a touch naïve, Aries, and may come off as aggressive.
Honesty has to be one the greatest Aries personality traits. People always know where they stand with you, and you say it like it is. You’re also immensely loyal to the ones you love, deeply protective and a whole lot of fun!
Everyone knows that Aries can be a bit, well, self-absorbed. But it’s never malicious. You’re self-absorbed the way that an infant is absorbed in its own needs. The said, do be aware that you can come off as insensitive to others.
Typical Zodiac Traits of a Taurus:
The first of the earth signs, you’re known for being sensual, grounded and stable. The world needs more of you nature lovers, and your taste, creativity and nurturing energy are a safe haven for all who know you.
Patience has to be your greatest virtue. You’re as solid as a rock, and nothing much ruffles your feathers – you really don’t like drama. You’re reliable in a crisis and totally dependable, a rare quality in the modern world.
Well, as you know, you can be the most infuriatingly stubborn and inflexible person on the planet. Things always have to be your way or the highway, which can create quite a rift in your relationships, relationships that you highly value.
Typical Zodiac Traits of a Gemini:
Chatty and curious, you have to be one of the most versatile and adaptable signs of the zodiac. You can wear all the roles, don all the hats and be everything to everyone. Change is your power place, and you love variety!
Your ability to be adaptable to whatever life throws at you is something that many will envy, as is your ability to understand literally any subject in a millisecond. Your wit, conversational skills and charm have most people wrapped around your baby finger.
You can be fickle at times, showing a hundred different faces to different people, which can make you seem untrustworthy. Be aware that your trait of adaptability doesn’t become a problem.
Typical Zodiac Traits of a Cancer:
The archetypal “mother “of the zodiac, you are one of the most caring, empathetic and gentle zodiac signs around. You fiercely protect and defend those you love, and nothing stands in the way of family for you!
One of your greatest, sometimes untapped strengths is your unbelievable intuition. It’s crazy. If you learn to follow your gut carefully, you’ll never be led astray, so pay attention. You’re also a wacky creative, so put this skill to good use!
Being such a “feely” and empathic zodiac sign, you tend to drown or wallow in emotion. Letting go of the past and its baggage is a major life lesson for you if you want to avoid trapping yourself in difficult moods.
Typical Zodiac Traits of a Leo:
Did you know that the Sun is strongest in your sign? Lucky you. This means you’re bestowed with the qualities of confidence, pride and warmth, as well as generosity and playfulness. Sure, you have some weaker traits, but not many.
You are a zodiac sign that has oodles of creativity and passion to share with the world. Whether you're a manager, leader or performer, you give it everything you’ve got. Self-expression comes naturally to you, so people will always sit up and take notice.
Pride can be a sin, you know. And your tendency to dominate, control and make things sometimes all about you can be irritating to some, especially those with not as much confidence as you. Go easy on the mortals, Leo.
Typical Zodiac Traits of a Virgo:
The world needs more Virgos. Kindhearted and clever, you’ve also got the gift of humor and know how to laugh at yourself (whilst simultaneously trying to fix your flaws). You’ve got a sensual, primal side that only a select few know about – a very sexy side.
You’re a born problem-solver. You can fix anything, and take pride in being wise and knowledgeable. What would we do without you, Virgo? You're also one of the most humble, down to earth and practical people out there.
As you well know, your perfectionist streak can be the death of you. You are so hard on yourself, and therefore hard on others, bordering on critical. This can make it hard for you to relax and let go of control sometimes.
Typical Zodiac Traits of a Libra:
Who doesn’t want to be a Libra? Charming, gorgeous and sweet, you’re a (gentle) force to be reckoned with. There’s no one who doesn’t adore you, even when you’ve done something terrible. Plus, you’ll always try and do the right thing.
No one does diplomacy and fairness quite like a Libra. Never seeking to “win”, you’ll always try and make sure everyone is happy and that things are done right. This can lend you a strong moral compass, which you need at times.
Your indecisiveness is famous. You can get really caught up procrastinating and can become overwhelmed with options. You can also be a bit too much of a fence-sitter, so make sure you pick a side. Any side.
Typical Zodiac Traits of a Scorpio:
For all the hype for being the most intense and scary sign of the zodiac, you’re actually a teddy bear. On the inside. As a water sign, you’re sensitive and intuitive, sweet and loving. On a good day. On a bad day, well….
Your loyalty has to be one of the greatest traits about your zodiac sign. It’s to the death – literally – unless you are betrayed. You’re also bordering on being psychic, which can come off as suspicious. But you should follow your hunches because they’re usually right.
You can be a bit, well, controlling. And jealous. And intense. You need to let go and surrender sometimes, to trust in life and to trust that you will always be okay, no matter how much life burns you. You are the Pheonix, after all.
Typical Zodiac Traits of a Sagittarius:
Everyone wants to be you, Sagittarius. The life of the party. The adventurer. The optimistic one. The comedian. Are you perfect? Almost, but not quite. You do have a dark side, just like every one else.
You have the ability to lift people up and make them smile, no matter what. Your Sagittarius warmth spills out, and you truly believe in the best possible outcome. You’re also always ready for anything, anytime, which makes life with you a pure adventure.
You can be one of the most irresponsible and reckless signs of the zodiac, Sagittarius, and your famous honesty can hurt others’ feelings. It’s important that you try and be considerate, even if you think the truth needs to be told.
Typical Zodiac Traits of a Capricorn:
You’re one magical creature. Half goat, half fish, you straddle the material and spiritual worlds. You’re a mystical CEO, a pragmatic believer, a grounded creative. You are nowhere near as boring as they say.
You’re one of the most responsible, determined and wise zodiac signs around. You’re a creator in every sense of the word, and your maturity and insight are inspiring. There are just no mountains that you cannot climb.
You can be insecure and hide your light, even doubt yourself at times. And you do need to lighten up. Use that dark, black humor of yours to bring joy into your everyday life and try not to take the world’s burdens onto your shoulders alone.
Typical Zodiac Traits of An Aquarius:
Aquarius- you are one of a kind. No two of you are really alike, or so you’d like to think. Both responsible and irresponsible, you’re a study in contradiction. Practically a genius, you’re usually light years ahead of your time, which is why they call you weird.
Your ability to stand and fight for what you believe in with the community you love is outstanding. You’re logical, uber-smart and a rebel – the world needs more people like you, people who aren’t afraid to fly their freak flag high!
You can be a bit of an ice queen – or king. Detached, you long to be part of a crowd, but are afraid to be vulnerable and open up. You’ll also need to work on your tendency to “know it all.
Typical Zodiac Traits of a Pisces:
The last sign of the zodiac, you’re sensitive, dreamy, mystical and otherworldly. Earth is not your home, and you know you’re just passing through. Pisces have the ability to love unconditionally, but need to be more discerning.
You usually have immense creative talent, particularly with music. Pisces are also deeply caring and feel the suffering of all things, which makes you truly compassionate. Spiritual and wise, you show others how to trust and let go in the divine order of things.
Boundaries, boundaries, boundaries, Pisces. You need more of them, and not the flimsy kind. Learn to say “no”, and don’t give everyone the benefit of the doubt. And, stop escaping into unhealthy things. Find healthy, constructive escapes.
