Aquarius: (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) The 11th sign of the zodiac. These air signs are known for being the progressives of the zodiac. These are the ones that want to rebel against the norms and are the outside-of-the-box thinkers. Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius, which means these are the visionaries and thinkers that hope to make the world a better place. On the other hand, they are known for their steel, emotionless thinking, aloofness, and are easily detached. Compatibility is best between Leo and Sagittarius.   

Pisces: (Feb. 19 to March 20) The 12th sign of the zodiac. A water sign whose emotions run like a river stream. These gentle, artistic creatures are the wise bearers of the world. They have a significant emotional capacity and can give anyone good advice. Neptune and Jupiter are the ruling planets, emphasizing their creativity and freedom. These fish are prone to fantasy, fearful, and have difficulty moving on from things. Compatibility is best between Virgo and Taurus.   

Aries: (March 21 to April 19) The 1st sign of the zodiac. A fiery spirit that demands attention everywhere they go, these fireballs are known for getting what they want, when they want it. Extremely competitive, ambitious, and bold. Ruled by planet Mars, it adds to the strength that Aries possesses. However, these hotheads are temperamental, impulsive, and aggressive. Compatibility is best between Libra and Leo.   

Taurus (April 20 to May 20) The 2nd sign of the zodiac. There is a reason that the bull is the symbol for this sign. They are notorious for stubbornness. Nevertheless, they are ruled by Venus, which is the planet of beauty, love, and attraction. Taurus can indulge in materialistic and physical pleasures and sometimes get lost. This earth sign is possessive, blunt, and angry. Compatibility is best between Scorpio and Cancer.   

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) is the 3rd sign of the zodiac. A split personality, one that can be curious, friendly, and gentle. But then become inconsistent, unpredictable, and manipulative. This air sign ruled by Mercury symbolizes all artistic things. These free-loving hippies can be fun and laid back until you mess with them. Compatibility is best between Sagittarius and Aquarius.

Cancer (June 21 to July 22) is the 4th sign of the zodiac. These crabs are known for their extreme mood swings, either being the sweetest or the meanest. A true water sign that lives through their heart and embraces emotion. One thing is for sure: do not ever disrespect their family, especially their mother. At times, they are ruled by the moon, which explains their flaky nature. The good: empathetic, loyal, and kind. The bad: moody, insecure, and suspicious. Compatibility is best between Scorpio and Pisces.   

Leo (July 23 to August 22) the 5th sign of the zodiac. Picture an all mighty, powerful lion that roars louder than the others. Leo, the born leader out of the zodiac, is known for their courage, passion, and warmheartedness. However, this is a fire sign which makes them susceptible to getting angry quickly, inflexibility, and selfishness. Ruled by the sun, these signs shine bright no matter what they do. Compatibility is best between Aquarius and Gemini.   

Virgo (August 23 to Sept. 22). The 6th sign of the zodiac. Analyzers, critical thinkers, the ones that notice the smallest detail. That is a Virgo. They are the most chill people you will ever encounter. Like Gemini, Mercury rules this sign which means writing, communication, and speech are strong suits. A maiden or goddess is the symbol, which explains the stereotype of perfectionism. Although Virgos are critical, shy, and worry too much about tiny things. They do exemplify peace and serenity. Compatibility is best between Taurus and Capricorn.

Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) is the 7th sign of the zodiac. These are the besties, the ones who are always smiling or cracking up, and the ones who know how to have fun. A proper air sign ruled by Venus explains their adoration for beauty and flirtatious personality. They are the social butterflies that thrive in a room full of people, not a room full of nothing. However, we must not forget their tendency to self-pity and hold a grudge. Compatibility is best between Aries and Sagittarius.   

Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) is the 8th sign of the zodiac. The scorpion symbolizes this sign. Passionate and assertive, these people will not give up easily. For some reason, Scorpios tend to be the most magnetic and alluring out of all the other signs. Ruled by Pluto and Mars, these individuals can keep cool, calm, and collected in any situation. But they can be cold, jealous, and highly manipulative. Also, they are lovers of secrets while simultaneously always expecting honesty. These scorpions have darkness lurking and will sting at any moment. Compatibility is best between Cancer and Pisces.   

Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 21) is the 9th sign of the zodiac. Travelers never want to be in a single place. Adventurous, optimistic, and always down for something different. Being around a Sagittarius will never leave you bored. Freedom is a necessity; it is like breathing air for these archers. Ruled by Jupiter, the giant planet in the solar system, this sign demands a presence. The negative traits are impatience, bluntness, and flightiness. Compatibility is best between Aries and Leo.   

Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) is the 10th sign of the zodiac. An earth sign that worships their work. A career is a holy grail to a Capricorn. Independence, self-control, and discipline are highly valued. The goat needs stability because they believe that will lead to the safest way to success. Saturn is the ruler, which explains why Capricorns tend to be distant and restrictive. It is odd because they can be misunderstood. When they’re around people who make them safe and comfortable, a new fun side comes out. The problem with these goats is their pessimistic thinking, know-it attitude, and emotionally cold. Compatibility is best between Taurus and Virgo.
