Your Natural Gifts And Talents
Buzz, Self

Maybe she was born with it. Maybe it's her zodiac sign.

Each of us has a type of natural talent or gift that seems to flow naturally and effortlessly. We don't know where it came from and we seem to have it from birth.

Sometimes these abilities are so easy that we don't really notice them or give them any value. But knowing and taking advantage of these gifts can be key in finding the perfect job or life's work. When we utilize these special gifts, they can add to our feelings of well-being, self-esteem and confidence.

If you're not really sure what yours are, the zodiac can help, since it hugely influences the qualities that make us who we are. Here are the gifts and natural talents that you have, according to your zodiac sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19): Gift of inspiration

Aries are all about forward motion and taking chances, so it's not surprising that without any effort on their part, they inspire people. Besides being an unaware source of inspiration, Aries have a natural talent for building things, and sports. Perhaps it's time for you to build that bookcase you've been putting off, join a team or put together a TedTalk.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Gift of culinary arts

Taurus, you can cook. I don't know how hidden your special talent is, because when you flex your culinary muscles it's really a feast for the senses. The smell of deliciousness is difficult to hide and you also have an artistic eye, so your plating is always gorgeous.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20): Gift of language

No need to kiss the Blarney Stone for Gemini to possess the gift of gab. You can talk to anyone, anywhere and at any time. You make any kind of party into a spectacular social event. We all need your language and socialization talents.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Gift of understanding

You may not be a psychologist by trade, but you're certainly an unpaid one for your friends and family. Your natural abilities include being ridiculously intuitive, understanding, non-judgmental, empathetic, a great listener, and you're able to put everyone at ease. Everyone needs a Cancer for a friend or therapist.

Leo (July 23 - August 22): Gift of luminescence

You, Leo, are a star and you're able to keep people's interest with very little effort on your part. Luckily, you like to be the center of attention and thrive on it. Entertaining people and making them laugh are your natural talents.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22): Gift of accuracy

Geez, talk about detail-oriented! You've got boatloads of that talent, Virgo. Every detail is remembered and done to perfection. You have an uncanny ability to focus on every element. It's why you're so good at anything you put your mind to.

Libra (September 23 - October 22): Gift of justice

No one is as unbiased and fair than you, Libra. You're the best mediator and when your friends aren't getting along with each other, you help them work out the problem. Although you seem blind to this, you're charming and likeable. 

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21): Gift of achievement

Whatever you set your mind to, happens — you're that dedicated. You also have the rare gift of a depth of understanding. Did you think everybody has these gifts? Um, nope. Some people can make themselves goal-oriented, but Scorpio doesn't even have to try.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21): Gift of happiness

Sagittarius makes people happy wherever they go. You're very adaptable, and like to go to new places and meet new people. Your enthusiasm is infectious. You enjoy sharing your knowledge and experiences with everybody, and you make the world seem like a magical, wonderful place.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19): Gift of dedication

Capricorns are very familiar with hard work and often have more than one job, multiple hobbies, family, and various other things going on. Yet, they stay focused, calm and collected. Capricorn, we all wish we had your gift for getting it done.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18): Gift of confidence.

You know who you are and you're not going to change for anybody. You do your own thing and people gravitate to you because you're unique, confident, and have an inner peace.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20): Gift of creativity

Pisces are the most creative and artistic sign of the zodiac. The way you're able to capture emotions, images and thoughts in such artistic pursuits as writing, fine art, photography and interior design is truly amazing.
