Passive Or Assertive, Based On Your Sign

It's in the stars.

If you've ever wondered whether or not you're naturally confident or err on the side of being passive and low key, the month you were born in is definitely to blame. According to the Daily Mail, your zodiac sign determines just how assertive or passive you are.

It was recently revealed that just half of the zodiac signs possess assertive qualities, while the other half are much more passive by nature. Are you ready for the good news?

If you are a Cancer, Scorpio, Virgo, Taurus, Capricorn or Pisces, you fall under the passive side. This means that you're much more likely to be loyal, compassionate, dependable and caring.

The assertive Zodiac signs are Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius. These signs are generally more independent, headstrong, confident, and ambitious.

Scientists actually found that "the star sign Aquarius is most linked with being a celebrity, as it is both ‘assertive’ or ‘bright’ and is also considered ‘wet’". So it looks like Aquarius are leading the pack! 

Remember, though that "astrological aspects are just useful tools, or heuristics, that help people remember the timing and patterns of nature." So take the fact that the research isn't definite into consideration.
