The True Personality Traits Of Each Zodiac Sign, According To Astrology

All the good and bad personality traits of human beings becomes somewhat equalized when we are put to the test; if we are in danger, or if someone we know or love is in danger, then we stand up and we fight for them.

We put down our petty behavior and our toxic outlook for the sake of doing good. This is how we, as human beings, show who we really are or who we are "at heart."

And it's no different for each of the zodiac signs.

Most of the time, we’re good people — who we are "at heart" or what we are made of during the times that test us is what makes us dig deep and find that truly noble state of goodness.

While not everyone has great intentions, most of us would at least like to consider ourselves good at heart, and our horoscope can even sometimes reflect that. Then again, our personalities at heart may be somewhat of an anti-hero.

So, can we tell what the zodiac personality traits truly are? Can we determine, with the help of astrology, who the zodiac signs are at heart? 

Are you a hero or an anti-hero? Do you jump at the chance to help another or are you a shadow-person at heart, keeping in the dark, possibly fearful of new experience?

Let’s take a look now at what astrology suggests for the true personality traits of those whose star falls under these star signs.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

At heart, you are a good person. For all the pushiness and ego-related demanding you do, at the heart of you, you are a very kind person and you do want to help others.

You may not always like the process or even the people, but in the long run, Aries, you want to play for the good team.
