ARIES March 21 – April 19
Aries has the ability to find the good in almost any situation. While this strong sign is known for battling their way through life, they are often able to do it with a smile on their face and enough optimism to encourage others to keep moving forward, too. Even though this ram sign has a hot temper, they’re quick to forgive and let bygones be bygones because they know life is too short to focus on the negatives.
TAURUS April 20 – May 20
Tell a Taurus your troubles and they’re likely to put their hand on your shoulder, give you meaningful words of encouragement and follow up with a warm, comforting hug. This family-oriented sign is never afraid to give their support and love to others, even at the expense of themselves. Their ability to understand someone’s pain, and show kindness when it’s most needed is so powerful, it has the ability to transform situations for the better.
GEMINI May 21 – June 20
It’s no secret to Gemini that they’re smart. Their absolute love of knowledge can be intimidating to others, but because Gemini is so social and friendly, they are quick to make anyone they’re talking to feel equally intelligent. This twin sign is able to quickly synthesize information and use it to improve the world around them. This makes them strong leaders as well as thinkers.
CANCER June 21 – July 22
Nothing makes Cancer happier than knowing they were the reason someone’s day was brighter. This sensitive sign will make every effort to be there for people who need them, and won’t quit just because the road ahead is hard. These crabs aren’t boastful, either, so make sure to give them a thank-you or else they may feel like their time and energy wasn’t valued.
LEO July 23 – August 22
Leo is the quiet, unmoving anchor in a chaotic sea. Their strength is primal and deeper than many can fathom. Leo’s ability to weather storms and survive things that destroy others is nothing short of remarkable, but they don’t need you to tell them that. These fierce lions are unwavering in their ability to overcome hardship and maintain their composure while being confident leaders and, when needed, brave protectors.
VIRGO August 23 – September 22
A Virgo will never turn their back on someone in need. This loving maiden sign is drawn to care-taking roles and no job, no matter how demanding, will change their minds. Whether they’re tending to the sick, providing for the needy, comforting someone in mourning or even assisting someone who is terminally ill, Virgo will give all of themselves in order to make sure the person who needs them most feels loved.
LIBRA September 23 – October 22
Libra is always searching for ways to find the best version of themselves, and they aren’t afraid to work hard to achieve it.

This sign isn’t afraid to take stock of their faults and will never stop trying to fix them.
SCORPIO October 23 – November 22
Crafty Scorpio can turn anything into a work of art. There is no limit to their creativity and even if they’re on a tight budget, this sign can turn scraps into something beautiful. While their innovation is great for home decor, it can also be the foundation for a future business. As long as Scorpio learns to let others help, they can turn their passions into a lucrative empire.
SAGITTARIUS November 23 – December 21
Sagittarius has the unique ability of being able to take in information without making a quick judgment.

Their laser-like focus and determination is unmatched in all of the zodiac, and you can believe that if a Capricorn tells you they’re going to make something happen, they will. Just make sure to stay out of their way, because once this seagoat is on a mission, nothing can stop them.
AQUARIUS January 20 – February 18
Aquarius is a healer by nature and takes great care to leave the world better than how they found it.
