[vc_row][vc_column][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]The zodiac refers to the constellations the sun passes through in its trip across the sky. Although the sun technically passes through 13 constellations, the zodiac traditionally contains only 12. The constellations of the zodiac are Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpius, Sagittarius, Capricornus, Aquarius, and Pisces. The zodiac Sun signs help to better understand temperament and personality quirks. While everyone is different, those of the same sign tend to have similar likes and dislikes. Take a look below for tips on how to identify the idiosyncrasies of each sign.



  • Do: Challenge them, and be spontaneous. Aries signs love competition and immediate action.
  • Don’t: Make them wait. They tend to be impulsive and impatient. Also, don’t try to give them advice. While Aries signs are generally open minded, they prefer to do things their own way.


  • Do: Offer stability and consistency. Taureans are loyal and enjoy routine.
  • Don’t: Try to change things around. A Taurus will most likely have a set schedule or routine, and the last thing they want is for someone to come along and change it.


  • Do: Provide variety. Geminis tend to be restless, and they need constant movement and change. They love to be introduced to new people, new things, and new ideas.
  • Don’t: Be possessive or ill-informed. Gemini signs need independence and space, and are happiest when in the middle of conversation. If someone doesn’t know what they are talking about, a Gemini won’t talk to them for long.

  • Don’t: Be spontaneous or interrupt the group harmony. Cancer signs are feeling-oriented, leading them to avoid negative situations or conversations.

  • Do: Be dedicated and meticulous. Virgoans are extremely devoted and hardworking.
  • Don’t: Be tardy, idle, or untidy. Virgo signs are true perfectionists, meticulous and always paying close attention to detail. They enjoy hard work and action, and tend to be critical to those who don’t share the same values.
