Okay, so we know all about the beauty routines we follow and the cocktails we drink based on the zodiac (heck, it even tells us who to settle down with!), but have you ever stopped to consider the not-so-random traits that make your sign your own? According to several astrologists, our signs show up in some freaky-specific physical and personality traits. Time to put that zodiac to the test — see how well you match up against your sign’s traits.
1. Aquarius: Your hands and feet are always cold
If you’re an Aquarius, chances are you’re the master of teamwork ands spot-on when communicating all the feels. You’re also probably one of those people with ice cold hands and feet. The reason? ‘Aquarius rules circulation in the body,’ astrologer and Feng Shui expert Donna Stellhorn from …… told Business Insider. Fingers and toes though, not so much
2. Pisces: You have a weird affinity with the number 7
For a Pisces, seven goes beyond lucky number territory. Associated with spiritual, psychic and intellectual development, as well as wisdom and higher reasoning, the number seven is a lucky number on steroids for Pisces if it appears in patterns. If you see a sequence of sevens throughout a day (the clock reads 7:07, for example), you’re probably having a particularly good one.
3. Aries: You have a scar on your forehead or face</strong
If Aries’ ram symbol is any indication, those under this fire sign are more likely to experience head injuries in their lifetime. This doesn’t have anything to do with being accident prone, however – Aries are fearless (and, at times, reckless) and often approach new things (literally) head first, especially as kids. Aries check your foreheads for small, Harry Potter-esque scars; chances are you have them.
4. Taurus: You hate (repeat hate) mornings
Taurus folks, if the alarm roll on your phone, set for every five minutes past 7am sings like a symphony, you’re not alone. Mornings are just not your thing. Hey, you’re ruled by Venus, the planet of beauty and love, and are known to be dedicated, so it makes a heck of a lot of sense that you are committed to your beauty sleep. Appropriately, one of your all-time favourite things, according to Astro Style, is satin sheets. There you go.
5. Gemini: You look best in (and love!) green and yellow
Known for their charming, witty and adventure personalities, Geminis often decorate their homes in shades of yellow, gold, chartreuse or green and tend to look best in them too. Geminis can allegedly ‘activate’ the hues’ powers by wearing them (try smudging an emerald eyeliner into your lash line!) on a day when some extra luck (or persuasion!) is needed.
6. Cancer: You love antique hunting and vintage clothing
Cancers love things that are one of a kind, something that springs from their creative, nurturing and artistic personalities. Ruled by the moon – and their moods and emotions – Caners, often artists or singers, are most likely huge fans antique hunting and probably own quite a few vintage furniture or clothing pieces of their own.
7. Leo: You have a killer head of hair
Leo’s best and most identifiable features are their mane – which makes sense, considering their symbol is the lion. Whether you were born with a crazy amount of hair or have locks that are the envy of everyone you know, you have your sign (and great hair products, of course!) to thank.
8. Virgo: You graduated with honours
With your pragmatic work ethic, mean organisation skills and intense dedication to whatever it is you care about, it comes to no surprise that Virgos often graduate with honours, and are at the top of their classes.
9. Libra: You’re the fashionista of the group
Libras are the Zodiac’s fashionistas and have the wardrobes to show for it. Known for their opulent outfits, penchants for sky-high price tags and love for rich meals Libras are sincere trendsetters that probably Instagram their food before they eat it. Rules by Venus, the planet of love and beauty, Libras are also known for their good looks – and for having dimples!
10. Scorpio: You have widow’s peak
Guided by Pluto, the planet of power and regeneration, Scorpios are fiercely brave, loyal and sharp as tacks – as are their hairlines. Widows’s peak is characterised by the distinct V at the centre of the forehead where the hairline forms, which are Scorpio’s most telltale feature.
11. Sagittarius: Of all the signs, you’re most likely to be famous
If you’re a Sagittarius and have dreams of being on the silver screen, keep chasing them – allegedly, Sagittarians, known for their optimistic, dedicated and confident traits, are the most likely of all the signs to become famous or well-known. There’s a celebrity roster to back this up: Brad Pitt, Taylor Swift, Frank Sinatra, Scarlett Johansson.
12: Capricorn: You’re (literally) the boss
Check your boss’s birthday – it shouldn’t come as a surprise if it falls between December 22 and January 19. Known for their renowned ability to lead – and their loyal, hard-working and family-orientated personalities – Capricorns work obsessively on big projects and always have their long-term goals in sight.
