At birth, the planets and stars visible in the sky largely determine our fate, character, and abilities. Ancient astrologers developed the 12 zodiac signs to understand this better. Each of these 12 zodiac signs has its personality traits, both positive and negative.
Every individual is different from others. There are strengths and weaknesses of every zodiac sign. This is because some planets have a more significant impact on certain personality traits. To understand more in detail, you should look at your birth chart to know which planets rule more in various aspects of your life. (You can ask an astrologer online if you want a good interpretation of your natal chart.)
All 12 zodiac signs have positive and negative traits. But, here we will only mention the best traits of each zodiac sign and what these astrological signs are best known for.
Aries – Independent Explorer
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac sign dominated by Agni Tatwa (Fire Element) and ruled by Mangal Graha (Mars). Representatives of the Aries sign are very trusting and unsophisticated by nature. Their core personality comes from the trust of their instincts and intuition, driven by passion. They have self-confidence and an optimistic outlook on life and self-confidence.
Aries are witty; they know how to think independently. At the same time, they are constantly hindered by narcissism and partly posturing. If the manifestation of these qualities is reduced even by a little bit, then Aries will achieve intellectual heights.
Taurus – Real Scholar and Thinker
Taurus is ruled by Shukra Graha (Venus) and is one of Earth signs. Taurus is a very unusual zodiac sign in terms of intelligence. This lies in the fact that representatives of this intellectual sign often do not show their intelligence. When you first meet a Taurus, it may seem that this is a mediocre personality in the mental plane. Taurus never tries to appear better than they are.
After talking with a Taurus, you will soon be amazed that this naive person is the smartest. They try not only to read books but also to apply the knowledge gained in practice. They are not used to focusing everyone’s attention on their abilities and successes, and therefore often seem naive and lazy. But once you get to know them better, it turns out that this is not at all the case.
Gemini – Excellent Orator and Thinker
Patrone by the planet of communication – Budha Graha (Mercury); Gemini is witty, funny, and friendly. They grasp any topic very quickly and are distinguished by developed logical thinking. They are capable in many areas, ranging from learning new languages to solving math problems. Gemini can explain the most difficult concepts in the simplest way.
Gemini will always find a way out of any situation because they can adequately assess the situation. They can assimilate a wide variety of information at a cosmic speed, but they are not at all ready to stop to sort it all out on the shelves. Therefore, in the palaces of the mind, these mutable signs have about the same disorder as in the room and life.
Cancer – Excellent Memory and Instinct
Cancer is patroned by Chandra Graha (Moon) and is dominated by Jal Tatwa (Water Element). Those born under this sign are considered sensitive people with cautious natures. They are not used to shouting about their talents, but they can make the right decision and take responsibility for the entire team in an emergency. They make most of their decisions at the behest of their hearts.
The persistence of the representatives of the cancer zodiac sign in achieving their goals can only be envied. And this sign also has a unique ability to win over people. There are no barriers to learning for them. They quickly and without any particular difficulties absorb the material, but only that will become suitable for them in life.
Leo – Excellent Intuitive Intelligence
The Agni Tatwa (Fire Sign) Simha Rashi is ruled by the Surya (Sun). The native of Leo has an intelligence that can be qualified as social. They love to shine in society and seek the admiration and approval of others. They are therefore able to adapt to all situations, and all appreciate their company.
Steadfastness and courage rule Leo’s intellect. Determination helps them overcome any fear of failure, and if they set a goal, they will achieve it. The high bar they set for themselves motivates them and helps them move forward, relying on their intuitive intelligence. They have the greatest spirit of leadership around the zodiac, so their willingness to learn, manage well, and lead to mastery is imperative.
Virgo – Practical and Well-Developed Logical Thinking
Ruled by Budha Graha (Mercury) with a dominance of earth elements, Virgo is highly logical, observant, and communicative. This sign has a plan for everything and manages to solve any problems that arise. People of this sign are methodical and perfectionists with everything they do; they charge a lot for everything.
Planning and organization are the keys to Virgo’s success! Virgos can quickly master a new business and easily find the books they need for work, be it literature in their specialty or step-by-step instructions for developing useful personal qualities. They find their true delight in fascinating fantasy and novels with well-developed character psychology. However, even if they do not like the book, Virgos will still read it to the end, noting every shortcoming in the work of the author and editors.
Libra – Ingenious Diplomats
Tula Rashi or Libra is one of the air signs ruled by Shukra Graha (Venus). Libra’s intelligence should never be underestimated. These people are critical thinkers and can deftly juggle their arguments in almost any dispute. They are born diplomats and fighters for justice.
Libra’s intellect could be envied if natural modesty did not prevent them from using it to their full potential. They boldly and confidently make decisions even in the most challenging situations. Libra does not accept the struggle for supremacy or survival. Therefore, they prefer to work for themselves all alone. It will not be difficult for them to build a house themselves or write a book.
Scorpio – Emotionally Intelligent
The water sign Scorpio’s ruling planet is Mangal Graha (Mars). This planet makes Scorpio people serious, fearless, stubborn at times, intense, and passionate. Scorpios are often underestimated as their mysterious personality can hide their true abilities. If they believe in or love something, they can completely immerse themselves in the subject of their interest.
Although they can sometimes make irrational decisions, they are willing to get back on track. In addition, Scorpios have strong sensitivity and intuition, which enhances their emotional intelligence. They are charismatic and attractive, which allows them to be an example to others and teach them through their actions. These ambitious people are susceptible, very wise, and almost impossible to deceive.
Sagittarius – Capable Student
Dhanu Rashi or Sagittarians are ruled by Brihaspati Graha (Jupiter), and Vayu Tattwa (Air Element) is dominant in this sign. This makes them confident and motivated and is more likely than others to make important discoveries and become engines of progress. They often become bookworms, and their library is constantly updated with new copies. Sagittarius can learn anything – they are energetic and ambitious.
Capricorn – Quick-Witted Representatives
Makara Rashi or Capricorn like Aquarius are patroned by Shani Graha (Saturn), and Vayu Tattwa (Air Element) is dominant in this sign. They live in a world of ideas and have innate sociability. These hardest workers rely not on emotions but on ideas that stimulate their intelligence. Their outstanding mental abilities endow them with objectivity and an impartial view of things. Knowledge is given to them through work and perseverance. Often the problem with this cardinal sign is a heavy reliance on authoritative opinion. Capricorns need to add a little independence in thinking – then everything will be fine.
Aquarius – a mad scientist
Aquarius is patronized by Shani Graha (Saturn), which is responsible for intelligence and composure. So, the representatives of this sign are very restrained, even shy, but behind all, there is a remarkable mind. Since childhood, they have had a high IQ, but they tend to show it only in particular situations. Aquarius never follow the crowd and can generate non-standard innovative ideas.
There are many geniuses and inventors among the people of this sign. They are a mad scientist who has the capability of making incredible discovery. Aquarians are always aware of modern technologies and can explain complex things in an accessible language. Most of all, they love research, exchange of opinions, and implementation of something new. They often become the authors of conspiracy theories and revolutionary ideas.
Pisces – Observant
Pisces is ruled by Brihaspati (Jupiter), which endowed them with emotional intelligence that keeps them from conflict with other people. But his enduring emotions may take precedence over reflection, even if he is endowed with extraordinary intellectual capacity. They get to know the world more through sensations.
If something interests them, Pisces will quickly master it. They can absorb a lot of knowledge, and not a single secret escapes their gaze. Sometimes they go too deep in themselves, leading to wrong decisions, but their intuition will always direct them on the right path. These magical people are just a little dreamy and tend to build illusions. These are people for whom art and creativity are in the foreground, but the reality is too harsh for their gentle nature.
