Gratitude, According To Your Zodiac Sign

It's in the stars, baby.

Gratitude is a very powerful emotion, and should be expressed as often as possible. I'm not saying it will make all your dreams come true if you give thanks, but it doesn't hurt. 

When you're grateful, you're also hopeful, empathetic, and generating all kinds of positive feelings. If you have an attitude of gratitude, you're a better friend, you sleep better, your relationships are stronger, and your immune system is stronger.

Being grateful is more than just being thankful that you didn't get a ticket or did get a promotion; it's being grateful for the gifts and talents that you possess — the very characteristics that make you who you are. And our zodiac sign actually influences the ways in which we express gratitude.

Aries (March 21 - April 19): You're passionate, ambitious and driven, and you express your gratitude fiercely and directly. Your thanks come from the heart, You're aware of how you've worked for all your achievements and successes, and right along with your feeling of gratitude is one of accomplishment.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20): You know yourself very well and have a strong sense of self. The Taurean way to express gratitude is from the heart, without any extras. You're in tune with what you want, how to get it, and what you already have — and you're thankful for all of it.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20): You're very adaptable and nothing throws you for a loop. You're open to new experiences and people, and you express your gratitude in simple statements such as, "I'm grateful that I have people who love me, good health, happiness, and the ability to travel and see new worlds."

Cancer (June 21 - July 22): You're quite simply a great person who's very supportive and empathic. You often put yourself in other people's shoes to see things from their point of view. You express your gratitude in the actions that you do for others such as bringing over a home-cooked meal to a friend who just had a baby, or organizing a crowfunding campaign for a friend battling an illness.

Leo (July 23 - August 22): Few people are able to resist your charisma and charm. You love attention and can be a bit of a drama king/queen, but no one can fault you, as you're super creative and endearing. You're someone who shows their gratitude a little bit all the time. Some people never forget a slight, but you never forget an act of kindness.

Virgo (August 23-September 22): When everybody around you is going nuts, you have the ability to stay focused. You're practical, logical, and interested in everything. Everybody wants you on their team. You express your gratitude in the way that you act, especially when it comes to solving problems for others. 

Libra (September 23 - October 22): You're charming, sociable, and so fair that it's aggravating. Searching for the good in people is practically your vocation. You express your gratitude by being there for other people and helping them feel happier. You know you've got it good and want everybody else to feel the same way.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21): You're intensely passionate about almost everything. Your personal power is off the charts, and you have a tendency to be a bit demanding and possessive. Scorpios express their gratitude in actions, not words; they show their gratitude toward a loved one with loyalty and endurance. 

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21): We all adore the optimism and enthusiasm of a Sagittarius. While you can be honest (to the point of brutal honesty) and opinionated, you still seem friendly and kind. Sagittarians are completely present with their gratitude and are very much in the moment.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19): Your ambition, motivation, and discipline make all your goals into a reality. As a Capricorn, you may have difficulty expressing gratitude to another person, and may do it in such a manner that it takes the person a moment to realize that you're actually thanking them. But this doesn't make your gratitude any less powerful.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18): You're everybody's go-to person — not just because you're digitally gifted, but because you can stay calm and logical when everyone else is panicking. You're best at expressing gratitude to a whole group, but if it's one on one, you have a harder time. When you do actually express thankfulness, it catches the other person off-guard ... in a totally delightful way.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20): Pisces are the dreamers and the artists of the world. As a Pisces, you're creative, imaginative, and intuitive. You live every day in a grateful space, so you may not make a large gesture of gratitude. But if someone is looking, they'll see it in your eyes.
