Are you curious to see what strengths and weaknesses your sign has (and to check on your friends, family members, and significant other’s sign)? To learn more, read on!
Aries: March 21 – April 19
Strengths: One of my best friends is an Aries, and if there’s one thing I can tell you about her, it’s that she is one of the most compassionate people I know. People with this sign are also very independent and confident. They love themselves (as they should).
Weaknesses: As much as I love my best friend, the one thing that I really don’t like about her is that she gets really moody a lot. Something really small could bother her to the point where she turns from really happy to sad and mad at everyone.
Taurus: April 20 – May 20
Strengths: Tauruses are excellent at giving advice and are very chill. They can keep secrets and will give anything straight to you because they’re so brutally honest..
Weaknesses: Stubborn as a bull. I can attest to this being the biggest weakness of a Taurus because I’m one myself. So many people have personally told me that I’m the most stubborn person that they’ve ever met (I take it as a compliment at this point).
Gemini: May 21 – June 20
Strengths: Geminis are super fun to be around because they’re hilarious people. People from this sign are also as fluid as water because they’re so adaptable to things. New experiences don’t scare them at all because of their flexibility to be in different situations.
Weaknesses: Geminis tend to overthink a lot of stuff, even for the smallest things. On top of that, Geminis have this air of nervousness around them because they’re usually very careful about things, but once you get them into their comfort zone, it’s all good.
Cancer: June 21 – July 22
Strengths: One of the best parts of Cancers is that they’re always so nice, even if they don’t like the person (kill them with kindness is their motto). They give the best advice to everyone and make for some of the greatest friends ever.
Weaknesses: Cancers are very good at manipulation or getting their way. They can easily get others on their sides with a few words (or tears). Moreover, Cancers are really pessimistic people. If you know someone that’s a Cancer, you probably know that they’re always the “glass is half empty” type.
Leo: July 23 – August 22
Strengths: Natural-born leaders. That’s who Leos are. The head of the pack fit for the sign of a lion. They’re loyal, smart, dominant, and charming. All of these can come in very handy if they become a politician.
Weaknesses: Arrogancy is a huge one for Leos. Sometimes, they can get really full of themselves and not realize what’s happening around them, which can affect their personal and professional lives drastically.
Virgo: August 23 – September 22
Strengths: This sign is known for its practicality and intelligence. Virgos give it yout straight. They’re so honest that it might even hurt sometime, but you know what they say: honesty is the best policy.
Weaknesses: Virgos are judgers. They not only judge others a lot but they also just themselves for doing things. This can be very detrimental to a Virgo and their surroundings because no one wants to be around someone that judges others for the littlest things.
Libra: September 23 – October 22
Strengths: True romantics. That’s what Libras are. They love giving love and receiving love. It’s just all about the love. Libras are also great at showing empathy. They can truly understand you and your problems and will be there as pillar of support.
Weaknesses: Libras hate making decisions because they’re super indecisive, so next time you’re figuring out what place to grab food, don’t as a Libra. Additionally, Libras hold grudges for some of the littlest things.
Scorpio: October 23 – November 21
Strengths: If you’re around a Scorpio, I can guarantee you that that person will be around for a long time. Why? Because Scorpios are some of the most loyal people in the whole wide world. They’re immensely protective of the people that they love and don’t take trust as easily as others do because they know that they’re in it for the long run and expect the same.
Weaknesses: Scorpios are secretive. They really don’t like sharing things about themselves and close up really easily, so it’s going to take some time to get inside that rock-hard shell if you just met a Scorpio.
Sagittarius: November 22 – December 21
Strengths: Some of the funniest and most adventurous people are Sagittarians. They enjoy doing things on-the-spot without any plan. Sagittarians are also some of the best pep-talk givers because they’re so optimistic and inspiring.
Weaknesses: Sagittarians love to argue. It’s one of their favorite things to do (becoming a lawyer is a great career path for them), but it’s not a favorite thing for someone that’s on the other side of the argument.
Capricorn: December 22 – January 19
Strengths: My mom’s a Capricorn, and if there’s one thing I can say about her, it’s that she is very disciplined. She loves a good routine. Capricorns are also people that are very responsible and have a very good work ethic, making them great at any job that they do.
Weaknesses: Similar to Tauruses, Capricorns are very head strong (I guess like mother, like daughter). They’re stubbornness can get to the better of them sometimes. Also, people of this sign are prone to sometimes overwork themselves, so if you’re a Capricorn, just take a deep breath and relax for some time.
Aquarius: January 20 – February 18
Strengths: Aquariuses are very clever people. They can make something great out of absolutely nothing because they’re so resourceful, creative, and inventive. Moreover, Aquariuses are charming. A simple smile from them can get others to also smile because of that wonderful charm.
Weaknesses: My brother’s an Aquarius, so I can personally attest to this. Aquariuses hate listening to others. They refuse to do it. It’s either their way or the highway.
Pisces: February 19 – March 20
Strengths: One thing that Pisces are great at is the arts. They love anything that has to do with their creativity because they love utilizing that part of their brain.
Weaknesses: Pisces are insanely gullible. They trust really easily and believe everything that they see or hear. Pisces also hate confrontations. They would rather escape problems than confront them head-on.
How Accurate Are These Descriptions?
I’d say pretty darn accurate. Obviously, there’s going to be exceptions. We’re all aware that everyone is different, and a generalization of someone’s strengths and weaknesses based on zodiac signs is only somewhat going to be accurate depending on the person, but there are so many other traits outside of these that we haven’t had a chance to cover today. Some other great ways to get to learn more about yourself and self-reflect are by doing a quick Google search, taking personality quizzes, or meeting a professional.
How Can I Learn More About My Astrology?
Astrology is unique to you and only you, kind of like DNA. Learning about your zodiac sign is the tip of the iceberg because there’s so much more out there about astrology, like planets, stars, elements, various types of charts, and ruling houses. The topic of astrology is vast, so if you truly want to learn more, there are a wide variety of sources you can use.
