♈  Aries - March 21st to April 19th

You’ve probably seen most astrology lists start with Aries, even though this sign represents the months of March and April, rather than the beginning of our calendar year. This is because Aries is the first cardinal sign and represents the beginning of spring, the growing season, and therefore, the year itself. The basic characteristic of Aries is action, and since Aries represents beginnings, it is under this sign that people are often inspired to start thinking about or making changes in their lives.

Aries, a sign known for its confidence and courage, fosters a lot of natural born leaders. One thing many of them have in common, as a result, is a scar on their forehead. This is because Aries children tend to rush forward into every new experience. This can literally lead to head injuries. If you're an Aries, go ahead and check for any Harry Potter like scars.

Aries Celebrities include: Emma Watson, Lady Gaga, Elton John, Jackie Chan, Robert Downey Jr, Kourtney Kardashian, Leonardo da Vinci & Vincent van Gogh.

♉  Taurus - April 20th to May 20th

In ancient Greek mythology, Zeus transformed himself into a bull in order to secretly seduce the mortal Europa. Once he got her attention, he carried her on his back to Crete, where he revealed himself as Zeus. Out of their affair, three sons were born, one of which became the most famous king of Crete. Zeus later paid his respect to the bull by placing it forever in the night sky. The bull seen in the constellation was later called Taurus because that is the Latin word for bull.

If you're a Taurus, you're likely a very practical and responsible person. Apart from your ability to actually do your laundry and pay bills on time, you're also likely to be very good with money. In fact, surveys show the Taurus natives are more likely to earn more than 100K a year.

Taurus Celebrities include: David Beckham, Dwayne Johnson, Megan Fox, Mark Zukerberg, HRH Queen Elizabeth II, Adele, Andy Murray, Billy Joel, Channing Tatum & William Shakespeare.

♊  Gemini - May 21st to June 20th

Out of all the signs, Gemini is the least likely to commit a violent crime. According to the FBI website, out of all criminals booked into custody, there are fewer Geminis than any other sign, and when they do get arrested, it is most often for the nonviolent crimes of fraud or stealing. However, one infamous Gemini criminal is serial killer and cannibal Jeffery Dahmer, who murdered 17 men over a span of 13 years.

As a Gemini, you're probably already aware of your ability to learn quickly, adapt, and exchange ideas. But did you know Geminis are the sign most likely to win prizes for their smarts? Gemini rules thinking and more Nobel Prize winners are Gemini than any other Star Sign.

Gemini Celebrities include: Kanye West, Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Ice Cube, Bob Dylan, Morgan Freeman, Donald Trump, Tupac Shakur, Prince, Marilyn Monroe & John F. Kennedy.

♋  Cancer - June 21st to July 22nd

Moon Child is the nickname for those born under Cancer. Popularized in the hippie era of the late '60s and early '70s, the nickname originates from the fact that Cancer is the sign ruled by the moon. Just like the phases the moon goes through throughout the month from crescent to full, Cancers tend to go through many changes and experience instability throughout their lives because they are the signs most connected to and influenced by their ever-changing emotions.

Cancers are loyal, tenacious, and highly emotional people mentally. But they have some telling physical traits, too. Cancer natives are ruled by the Moon and tend to have round, moon-like faces - Pretty cute, right?

Cancer Celebrities include: Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, George Michael, Robin Williams, Khloe Kardashian, Tom Cruise, Vin Diesel, Tom Hanks, Sylvester Stallone & George Orwell.

♌ Leo - July 23rd to August 22nd

Each Zodiac sign has an opposite, and while many would assume this means the signs are polar opposites, don’t get along, or tend to have opposites-attract type relationships, the truth is that none of those notions is true. Opposite signs are more like two sides of the same coin, concerned with similar issues but oriented towards the same goal from the opposite direction. Leo’s opposite is Aquarius; both signs are interested in creativity and innovation, but Leo approaches these interests in a personal way, while Aquarius is concerned with a collective standpoint, seeing themselves from more of a group standpoint compared to Leo’s individualism.

Hey Leo, you already know that you're super creative and passionate. But have you ever used that to your advantage in your career? If not, you may want to give it a try. Leos love to put on a show and traditionally make the best salespeople - Just a fun fact that may earn you some extra bucks.

Leo Celebrities Include: Barack Obama, Madonna, Mila Kunis, Jennifer Lopez, Sandra Bullock, Daniel Radcliffe, Ben Affleck, Roger Federer, Pete Sampras & Alfred Hitchcock.

Virgo - August 23rd to September 22nd

Virgo is the largest constellation in the Zodiac, and the second-largest constellation in the sky, of which there are eighty-eight. While most of its stars are dim and not easily seen by the naked eye, Virgo’s bright blue-white star Spica is easy to spot on clear summer nights. Spica is also the fifteenth brightest star in the night sky. To locate Virgo’s constellation, you can find the Big Dipper, then look southeast and connect the stars once you locate the bright Spica.

Virgo, you are super hardworking, analytical, and practical. And you know it. So your fun fact may not come as much of a surprise. But, you and your fellow Virgos have always been the highest achievers in school. Since you know how to study (and always study hard) you're almost always the top of your class.

Virgo Celebrities Include:  Beyonce Knowles, Michael Jackson, Niall Horan, Jason Derulo, Van Morrison, Adam Sandler, Cameron Diaz, Stephen King, Tim Burton & Roald Dahl.

Libra - September 23rd to October 22nd

Each Zodiac sign has an ancient gemstone affiliated with it, which is different from their month’s birthstone. Zodiac gemstones were believed to transmit energy from the planets to bring fortune and good luck to those who wear the sign’s stone. Libra’s Zodiac gemstone is Smokey quartz. It is a protective gemstone that is believed to inspire new ideas, helps make life fun and free of clutter, and promotes balance and positive self-image. New beginnings are meant to be made easier for Libras who have the smoky quartz.

As a Libra, you probably already know that you're the most cooperate, fair-minded, and social of the Zodiac. But did you know that Libra is also the sign of beauty? Libras often have a dimple on their cheek as a result.

Libra Celebrities include: Kate Winslet, Will Smith, Zac Effron, Kim Kardashian, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Bruno Mars, Usher, Simon Cowell & Oscar Wilde.

Scorpio - October 23rd to November 21st

There are more symbols to represent the facets of Scorpio personality than any other sign. The first is the Scorpion, which in legend is prone to sting itself to death out of its own frustrations. The second is the Snake, which represents cunning and wisdom. Then there is the Eagle, which refuses to be defeated, but will also never seek the total destruction of their enemy. Finally, there is the Phoenix, the mystical bird believed to have risen from its own ashes, representing resilience.

Scorpios are the most passionate of all the signs, often possessing the greatest feelings in every aspect of their life — relationships, work, hobbies, etc. But Scorpios can also have a physical trait that sets them apart - a Widow's Peak (the triangular point of hair that comes down in the center of the forehead.)

Scorpio Celebrities include: Katy Perry, Hillary Clinton, Leonardo DiCaprio, Ryan Gosling, Julia Roberts, Whoopi Goldberg, Bill Gates, Pele, Pablo Picasso & Christopher Columbus.

Sagittarius - November 22nd to December 21st

Sagittarius is a masculine-influenced fire sign, with the symbol of an archer and the ruling planet of Jupiter. As a result, they tend to be bursting with energy, enthusiasm and excitement. They react quickly and often make hasty decisions. This leads them to be the most adventurous sign in the Zodiac. Sagittarians are also most likely of all the signs to be famous or well-known.

As far as signs go, none are more generous or idealistic than the Sagittarius. And none have an oval face quite like Sagittarius, either. This has to do with Sagittarius ruling the horses, which (of course) have long faces.

Sagittarius Celebrities include: Brad Pitt, Nicki Minaj, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Britney Spears, Jay Z, Frank Sinatra, Bruce Lee, Walt Disney & Nostradamus.

Capricorn - December 22nd to January 19th

Even though Capricorns are best known as practical and level-headed, they also tend to have a lesser-known strong concentration of spiritual truth within themselves. They hold firm to their beliefs in both themselves and their spiritual truths. They are deeply connected with their home environment and also to nature. If they are often misunderstood, it is likely because their level of consciousness is more acute than others. The Capricorn is also historically portrayed as the goat and sea-goat, a creature with the torso and head of a goat and the tail of a fish, in Greek mythology.

Not only are you responsible and disciplined, but you're also the sign most likely to look young for a long, long time. That's because Capricorn rules aging, so go ahead and enjoy your youthfulness - Lucky you!

Capricorn Celebrities include: Meghan Trainor, Ellie Goulding, Tiger Woods, Liam Hemsworth, Bradley Cooper, Mel Gibson, Muhammed Ali, Elvis Presley, Martin Luther King & Isaac Newton.

Aquarius - January 20th to February 18th

Although it is difficult to determine the dates of the astrological ages because astrologists disagree on specific dates, the general consensus among astrologers is that we either already have entered or will soon enter the Age of Aquarius. Each astrological age lasts about 2,150 years and influences major changes in society, culture, and politics. It is determined by the position of the sun during the spring equinox as it moves in front of a new Zodiac constellation. The Age of Aquarius has also been used as a nickname for the New Age and hippie movements that were popular in the '60s and '70s.

If you were born under the Aquarius sign, then I bet you're known for your fierce independence. But did you know your sign might also explain why you're always freezing? In a totally unrelated fun fact, Aquarius people tend to have perpetually cold hands and feet. That's because Aquarius rules circulation in the body. It may explain your lifelong desire to turn the heat up.

Celebrity Aquarians include: Harry Styles, Cristiano Ronaldo, Michael Jordan, Ed Sheeran, Bob Marley, Oprah Winfrey, Justin Timberlake, Christian Bale, Thomas Edison & Charles Darwin.

Pisces - February 19th to March 20th

Each Zodiac sign has a set of numbers that are generally considered their lucky numbers, or numbers that hold significance to them at some point in their lives. Pisces most lucky number is seven. Seven is a lucky number associated with spiritual, psychic and intellectual development, as well as wisdom and higher reasoning. It is also a time-bound energy, which often signals luck when seen in sequences. For example, have you noticed a trend with sevens following you around? Maybe you look at your watch at 7:07? Or you see a series of sevens throughout the day (license plates, room numbers, etc.) If so, it can indicate good timing for scholarly or adventurous endeavors.

Pisces are generally very creative and usually dabble in the arts or work in an artistic field.

Pisces Celebrities Include: Daniel Craig, Rihanna, Floyd Mayweather, Eva Mendes, Timbaland, Justin Bieber, Dr. Seuss, Steve Jobs, George Washington, & Albert Einstein.
