Compatible Signs: Gemini, Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius

Characteristics: Known for being unmistakably charismatic, Leos are natural leaders with positive attitudes. But, like lions, they rely on their pack and don’t like to be alone.

Leo astrology traits

Virgo

August 23 – September 22
Symbol: Maiden
Element: Earth
Compatible Signs: Cancer, Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn

Symbol: Scorpion
Element: Water
Compatible Signs: Cancer, Virgo, Capricorn, Pisces

Traits: Drama may be the name of the game when it comes to Scorpios! On the flip side, their passion also makes them resilient and confident. And while they may come off as detached once in a while, when they do connect with someone, they’re loyal.

Scorpio traits and characteristics

Sagittarius

Symbol: Archer
Element: Fire
Compatible Signs: Aries, Leo, Libra, Aquarius

Sagittarius traits

Capricorn traits and personality

Aquarius

January 20 – February 18
Symbol: Water-bearer
Element: Air
Compatible Signs: Aries, Libra, Sagittarius, Leo

Traits: Those born under the Aquarius sign march to the beat of a different drum. For example, on a lazy afternoon, you may find them daydreaming in their own world!

Also, they prefer to develop their inner life rather than get caught up in the material world. But, they are inquisitive and extremely smart. They are very logical, yet eccentric at the same time!

Aquarius personality traits

Pisces

February 19 – March 20
Symbol: Fish
