Astrological chart with pushpins

By now, chances are you already know what your zodiac sign is, but is that simply because you read your horoscope for amusement purposes? Did you ever really ask yourself, “What does my sign mean?” Well, you should! The reality is, your sign can give you tremendous insight into your personality — not just whether or not your day looks promising. We’re talking about strengths, areas of challenge, compatibility, and more. Learning what such attributes are can help you strengthen your sense of self-awareness (e.g., you’ll know what makes you fly off the handle) so that you can live your best life while learning how to live conciliating with others as well. 

The best way to truly understand your astrological sign means is to sign up for a personalized astrology reading. Along with providing insight into fun topics such as how your aura is influenced by signs of the zodiac dates and birthday month stones, a personalized astrology reading provides you with a detailed overview of your birth chart in an effort to present you with a prediction and/or a guide for the near or not-so-distant future — this is the true foundation of a reading.

So, now that you’re more aware of what an astrology reading can tell you, let’s take a deeper dive into understanding what your sign truly represents.

Element: Air

Lucky Numbers: 4, 7, 11, 22, 29

Aquarians can appear shy and introverted but also a bit outlandish and spirited. They like to march to the beat of their own drummer as they value their independence — this is likely why they tend to avoid emotional attachments as well. It’s not to say that Aquarians can’t have a good time or be fun to be around, but when it comes to making major decisions it’s brain before heart. 

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

Element: Water

Quality: Mutable

Power Colors: Mauve, Violet, Purple, Lilac, Purple, Sea green

Best Day: Thursday

Ruling Planets: Neptune, Jupiter

Most Compatible With: Virgo, Taurus

Lucky Numbers: 3, 9, 12, 15, 18, 24

Though friendly and willing to mix with different types of people and personalities, Pisces typically feel more comfortable in small groups versus large crowds. Regardless, they are one of the most impressionable of the 12 signs because they are known for their compassionate, caring, empathetic, and generous ways. Between their razor-sharp intuition and moral compass, they rarely get off track. While Pisces can be daydreamers this doesn’t mean they won’t accomplish the task at hand. They simply need the right inspiration to push forward.  

Aries (March 21-April 1)

Element: Fire

Quality: Cardinal

Power Color: Red

Best Day: Tuesday

Ruling Planet: Mars

Most Compatible With: Libra, Leo

Lucky Numbers: 1, 8, 17

As the ram is technically the first sign in the zodiac, being in their presence can bring a whirlwind of activity — aries is actually one of the most active signs. Dynamic, competitive, and energetic, Aries wants to be number one in everything that they do. While they like to take charge, they do make it a point to look before they leap. From life to love to individual pursuits, those born under the sign of Aries undertake everything with ferocious intensity. 

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Element: Earth

Quality: Fixed

Power Colors: Green, Pink

Best Days: Friday, Monday

Ruling Planet: Venus

Most Compatible With: Scorpio, Cancer

Lucky Numbers: 2, 6, 9, 12, 24

Those born under the sign of the bull are practical and grounded yet they desire to be immersed in a world filled with beauty, love, and physical pleasures. While this may sound irresponsible, Taureans are actually one of the most stable signs of the zodiac and they’ll stick to their guns until they become completely satisfied with a particular situation, circumstance, idea, or solution. With that said, they are stubborn if they don’t agree with something or someone. 

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Element: Air

Quality: Mutable

Power Colors: Light-Green, Yellow

Best Day: Wednesday

Ruling Planet: Mercury

Most Compatible With: Sagittarius, Aquarius

Lucky Numbers: 5, 7, 14, 23

The twins represent a two-in-one personality type, which can be a bit intimidating for others as they never know which side they’re going to face. On one hand, they are outgoing, social, and ready for a good time but on the other hand, they are super-serious and overly mindful. Twins can find themselves in a constant state of change while also suffering the burden of dealing with repetitive, calculable situations. This can be disheartening as they have the desire to see as much as possible. The upside is that Geminus possess enough intelligence and intuitive sense to get through it all, one way or another. 

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Element: Water

Quality: Cardinal

Power Color: White

Best Day: Monday, Thursday

Ruling Planet: Moon

Most Compatible With: Capricorn, Taurus

Lucky Numbers: 2, 3, 15, 20

Moody, hostile, touch, and overly sentimental, the crab can be, well, a bit crabby at times! The sign of cancer is regarded as one of the most challenging and most difficult to get to know. Cancerians do have their good points, however. For example, they are deeply intuitive, understanding, sensitive, empathetic, and loving. In fact, they tend to rule with their heart instead of their heads on most occasions. 

Leo (July 23-August 22)

Element: Fire

Quality: Fixed

Power Colors: Gold, Yellow, Orange

Best Day: Sunday

Ruling Planet: Sun

Most Compatible With: Aquarius, Gemini

Lucky Numbers: 1, 3, 10, 19

Lions possess a king of the jungle mentality as they are truly natural-born leaders. Leos are confident, positive, and radiate an aura of warmth and happiness. It’s because of these traits that they are able to achieve anything they put their mind to. Even though they were born for the spotlight, they have a soft spot for others. This is exhibited through extreme kindness, loyalty, and generosity to friends, family, and a romantic partner or spouse. While this is all well and good, if their ego gets in the way, Leos can become extremely stubborn. 

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

Element: Earth

Quality: Mutable

Power Colors: Grey, Beige, Pale-Yellow

Best Day: Wednesday

Ruling Planet: Mercury

Most Compatible With: Pisces, Cancer

Lucky Numbers: 5, 14, 15, 23, 32

Methodical and detail-oriented, Virgos are hailed as one of the most cautious signs of the zodiac, which attracts both friends and enemies. As the name suggests, those born under the Virgo sign often feel as though they are experiencing something for the first time. Despite being intellectuals and excellent problem-solvers, Virgo men and women are often overly-critical of themselves and tend to close their heart off to others. 

Libra (September 23-October 22)

Element: Air

Quality: Cardinal

Power Colors: Pink, Green

Best Day: Friday

Ruling Planet: Venus

Most Compatible With: Aries, Sagittarius

Lucky Numbers: 4, 6, 13, 15, 24

Libras love balance in their lives — in fact, they are fascinated by it, which is why they are typically peaceful, cooperative, and diplomatic individuals and will do almost anything to avoid conflict of any kind. 

Partnership is a priority for those born under the sign of the libra  (it’s the sign of marriage, after all), so it’s no surprise that there’s a strong desire to maintain a harmonious, dedicated, and loving relationship. One of the few things that can disrupt a Libra’s normally peaceful existence is the fact that they tend to wage a silent war against injustice, so this can cause them to ignite on occasion.  

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Element: Water

Quality: Fixed

Power Colors: Scarlet, Red, Rust

Best Day: Tuesday

Ruling Planet: Pluto, Mars

Most Compatible With: Taurus, Cancer

Scorpios can be passionate, magnetic, perceptive, sensual, dominant, ambitious, fearless, and intense but can be overly assertive, obsessive, extreme, and vengeful. While this may sound like an intense mix of personality traits, Scorps make great leaders (especially in business) as they are resourceful and always aware of the situation at hand. Honest and fair, you can trust them with your secrets so Scorpios make great friends. When it comes to matters of the heart, the scorpion is sensual, passionate, and faithful. 

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

Element: Fire

Quality: Mutable

Power Color: Blue

Best Day: Thursday

Ruling Planet: Jupiter

Most Compatible With: Gemini, Aries

Lucky Numbers: 3, 7, 9, 12, 21

Characteristic of a fire sign, the Sagittarius is an enthusiastic extrovert that craves change. The Sag is actually one of the most well-traveled of all the zodiac signs — especially when they can travel solo. They cherish their freedom as this is when they truly feel they can discover the true meaning of life while discovering different cultures, people, places, and things. Sagittarians have a zest for life and a youthful personality regardless of age—It’s difficult to bring a Sag down. The archer is ready and willing to open any door life has to offer, which keeps an individual under this sign in a state of constant exploration. Those born under the sign of Sagitarrius will do anything to achieve their goals. 

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Element: Earth

Quality: Cardinal

Power Colors: Brown, Black

Best Day: Saturday

Ruling Planet: Saturn

Most Compatible With: Taurus, Cancer

Lucky Numbers: 4, 8, 13, 22

The sturdy goat will keep on climbing that mountain until it’s reached those goals — over and over again. The most ambitious sign of the zodiac, Caps are militant and strive to succeed in everything they put their mind to. Caps need their independence in order to progress both personally and professionally. They are extremely diligent and have the ability to establish realistic plans based on their background and expertise. While these are admirable qualities, they can take a toll on personal relationships, so it’s important that Capricorns find the right partner who understands their drive and dedication to success so that they don’t feel stifled.
