(WellnessPursuits.com) – The signs of the zodiac are a popular way to learn about our traits, and they seem to fit most people pretty well. But our zodiac signs may also give us essential insights into self-esteem and how we each view what we’re offering to the world. Here’s how every zodiac sign expresses their self-esteem.
Aries – March 21 – April 19
A bold, ambitious penchant for being number one and confidence that seems limitless are typical for those of us born under this fire sign. Our Achilles heel might be a tendency toward being overly self-critical, expecting too much from ourselves, and not allowing for lessons learned through experience. Although some Aries have a reputation for being selfish, we can also be generous, noble and enthusiastic. Famous Aries include Robert Downey Jr., Lady Gaga, Pharrell Williams, and Emma Thompson.
Taurus – April 20 – May 20
Constant, steadfast, reliable, loyal and persistent, Taureans seek out comfort and security. We value stability. If we lack confidence or feel stressed, it’s generally because of instability in relationships, finances, or our overall situation. When we’re healthy, we Taureans tend to be generous with both time and money when possible, and we enjoy time with friends and family. Famous Taureans include Queen Elizabeth II, George Clooney, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and Kelly Clarkson.
Gemini – May 21 – June 20
Gregarious, quick-witted, out-going, and dynamic, Geminis can fit into nearly any social setting easily. We love sharing big-picture ideas and guiding overviews of projects, but we generally do not enjoy detailed work and prefer to move on to the next project. Our love of communication sometimes leaves us speaking unfiltered thoughts — but our charm and presence of mind almost always save the day. Part of what makes us Geminis such great communicators is that we can be amazing listeners, too. Famous Geminis include Heidi Klum, Anderson Cooper, Neil Patrick Harris, and Venus Williams.
Cancer – June 21 – July 22
Protective, intuitive, loving, and shrewd, Cancers tend to put everything they have into relationships and friendships. We tend to avoid direct conflict, and we’ve been known to retreat into our social shells to sidestep it. Entertaining friends and family in our homes is something we relish. Our peace of mind comes from within, even though we value the opinions of others. Famous Cancers include Chris Pratt, Selena Gomez, Robin Williams, and Diana Spencer (formerly Princess Diana).
Leo – July 23 – August 22
Faithful, dedicated, stable, consistent and supportive, we Leos are often the star of the show. Sure, sometimes we don’t handle criticism well, and maybe we fear rejection… but who doesn’t? In general, we are strong, determined, and brave, and we love to see others succeed with us. We don’t give up, and we don’t give in. Famous Leos include Helen Mirren, Lawrence Fishburne, Sandra Bullock, and Chris Hemsworth.
Virgo – August 23 – September 22
Logical, practical, methodical, and meticulous, we Virgos are also some of the kindest, gentlest and most supportive friends and lovers you will ever know. It’s important for us to show you, in practical ways, how we feel about you by making sure we keep everything organized to perfection for you. Unfortunately, we sometimes go a touch overboard into control-freak territory. We respond to reminders that the ideal isn’t always practical — or fun — because we’re logical like that. Famous Virgos include Beyoncé, Keanu Reeves, Blake Lively, and Chris Pine.
Libra – September 23 – October 22
Diplomatic, charming, idealistic, and romantic, we Libras love making other people happy. We dread conflict, but we love to flirt, and we never mean any harm by it! We enjoy beautiful surroundings and harmonious relationships. We may seem indecisive at times, but when we trust our instincts and intuition, we rarely go wrong and usually find ways to negotiate peaceful resolutions to any social conflicts that arise. Famous Librans include Will Smith, Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Hilary Duff.
Scorpio – October 23 – November 21
Seductive, beguiling, sensual, clairvoyant, and mysterious, Scorpios can be passionate forces of nature. We plan, wait, and strike when the moment is right to capture hearts and minds even though we tend to hide our vulnerabilities. We are happiest with lifelong, trusting, committed relationships with friends and family who nurture our magic and our souls. Famous Scorpios include Matthew McConaughey, Ellen Pompeo, Whoopi Goldberg, and Jimmy Kimmel.
Sagittarius – November 22 – December 21
Jovial, honest, forthright, and optimistic, we Sagittarians have a wanderlust for new places to explore. We love to laugh, and we’ve never met a stranger. If we have a fault, it might be that we sometimes forget to temper honesty with tact. We are happiest when we can travel with trustworthy partners who have our backs on our adventures. Famous Sagittarians include Christina Applegate, Jon Stewart, Kaley Cuoco, and Brad Pitt.
Capricorn – December 22 – January 19
Patient, practical, and disciplined on the surface, we Capricorns are youthful, humorous, playful and optimistic once you get to know us better. Sometimes we can even be a bit impish! We enjoy focussing on our careers — but not to the exclusion of time with loved ones and a little time to party. We want to be the best at everything we undertake — thank goodness we’re practical enough to realize when that isn’t realistic! Famous Capricorns include Denzel Washington, Julia Louis-Dreyfuss, Orlando Bloom, and Zooey Deschanel.
Aquarius – January 20 – February 18
“I’ve Gotta Be Me” might well be the Aquarian theme some. We tend to be creative, innovative, and unique, even if it might spell trouble sometimes. Standing out isn’t always a benefit, but it’s an innate quality for most born under this sign. When we can relax socially and let go of any worries about what other people think of us, Aquarians tend to be the happiest and most confident. Famous Aquarians include Rosa Parks, Bob Marley, Jennifer Anniston, and Tom Selleck.
Pisces – February 19 – March 20
Clever, loyal, generous and good-natured, we are empaths who sometimes suffer from low self-esteem. Pisceans crave love, peace, and reassurance — all qualities we are more than willing to reciprocate. We can be social butterflies or introverts, but we do best with a few close, trusted friends. Famous Pisceans include Elizabeth Taylor, Bruce Willis, Steve Irwin, and Jennifer Love Hewitt.
No matter which zodiac sign we belong to or whether or not the sign’s traits seem to apply to us, it’s valuable to connect with aspects of life that resonate with us and help us feel happier and more confident. We can accomplish more and develop a healthier self-esteem by better understanding ourselves and our true nature.
