Aquarius is the eleventh zodiac sign and is said to be aligned with air as an element. Aquarians are born between January 20 to February 19. The symbol for this sign is water.
Aquarians can be expected to be headstrong but highly intellectual and philosophical. On the other hand, they can also be very reserved and shy or, on the other extreme, as loud and in control. However, regardless of what extreme an Aquarian is, they have one common trait: brutal honesty.
Celebrity Aquarians include singer Alicia Keys, Justin Timberlake, Harry Styles, and Tom Selleck. Actress Kerry Washington and Oprah Winfrey are also famous Aquarians.

While it can be a great thing for Pisces to be in touch with emotions, it also means that they can put others' needs ahead of theirs.

Aries is a strong fire sign born between March 20 and April 21 with a ram symbol. Aries typically have big energy and aura, and they love to take charge of their situation.
Aries is most compatible with Libra, Aquarius, Leo, Sagittarius, and Gemini. Non-ARIES who are in a relationship with Aries can always be counted on to keep the energy going. On the other hand, they cannot deal with low energy and need to be constantly entertained to avoid losing interest.

Born approximately between April 19 and May 20, Taurus belongs to the Earth element and has the symbol of a bull. As the element depicts, Taurus loves to be rooted in the earth, stable, and they know what they want.

Geminis are one of the most fluid and adaptive air signs born between May 21 and June 21. They can often be seen flitting from one idea to the other or one direction to the next, without much care for a sense of rigidity. Celebrity Geminis include Kanye West, Angelina Jolie, and the Olsen twins.
Seeing as Geminis are pretty fluid, it is not uncommon to see them being referred to as two-faced or disloyal. This is, however, incorrect, as they can be very loyal people who struggle with indecisiveness.

Virgos are born between August 22 and September 22 and are a mutable Earth sign with the maiden symbol. As is typical with most earth signs, Virgos can be easily influenced by those around them and are typically balanced and reasonable.
Known for their detail-oriented and hyper-focused nature on either work or life, Virgos can easily find themselves sucked into whatever has their attention. It then becomes essential for them to realize when they are losing themselves in focus and when they need to relax and take a step back.
