Important Dates For Your Zodiac Sign, Based On Astrology

Important Dates Zodiac Sign

Everyone has a holiday that is their absolute favorite. If you ask anyone - and I mean anyone - what their fave holiday is, they will most definitely have an answer for you, as well as their next three favorite holidays after that one.

I have a favorite holiday, too (Halloween), but I'm not the type of person to rank all of the popular holidays from favorite to least favorite.

But just because your favorite holiday is up at the top of your list because you like stuffing yourself with candy or getting tons of presents doesn't mean there's much more to it than that.

Let me explain.

Some holidays are your favorite just because you like them. But then there are some holidays that are important for your zodiac sign because they are the days when you feel most yourself; like, the best you that you can be.

These holidays tend to complement your strongest personality traits so that even if it's not necessarily your most favorite holiday, it's still a day that resonates with you. Having important dates and holidays for your zodiac sign is essential to really getting in touch with astrology, in my opinion.

It's a way to connect with your sign are understand how the stars make the most impact on your life, personality, and relationships.


The Super-Secret Side Of Each Zodiac Sign You DON'T Get To See

And with important holidays and dates, you can figure out when you're at the top of your game; just like knowing how to manifest change during a full moon or a new moon can help you thrive in life and love.

It's all about getting intimate with your natal chart and using it to bring some serious good in your life.

So, just because your sign's important holiday is still fun - like if you get to exchange gifts or hangout with friends getting drunk - it can still be a day to help you recharge your batteries and learn something new about your zodiac sign.

If you're interested to know which holiday is most important for you, based on your horoscope, keep reading.

ARIES (Mar 21 - Apr 19)

aries important holidays zodiac signs

Aries is all about having fun because she knows that life is WAY too short to sit at home alone. She loves spending time with her closest friends, but she is also one of those people who makes a new friend every time she goes out. Not only is New Year’s Eve the most important holiday for her, but Aries is pretty much NYE personified; one-of-a-kind, fun, and magical.

Just like Aries, New Year’s Eve is iconic and popular. It’s a lively and never-ending party that’s all about celebration – whether you’re celebrating something new or celebrating the end of something old. And since Aries loves to live it up, she has plenty of chances to do so before midnight – chances are good that you’ll see her at a few different parties throughout the night because the fun never ends for her.

TAURUS (Apr 20 - May 20)

taurus important holidays zodiac signs

Taurus is all about anything comfortable; you and I both know that she can be kind of lazy when it counts, but she will always go out of her way for comfort. To her, comfort comes in the form of food, people, and even a giant-ass couch.

Thanksgiving is not only the most important holiday for Taurus, it’s also her favorite. Sure, she likes to cook, but she likes to eat even more. And if there was a holiday better suited for her to stuff her face with comfort food, she hasn’t found it yet. She also gets to spend quality time with her favorite people and just relax for an entire day. Literally, the only thing on her schedule for the day is to eat – AKA a dream come true for Taurus.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

gemini important holidays zodiac signs

Gemini is the type of person to say yes to plans without hearing all the details because she loves the idea of just doing something fun that she doesn’t really care what it is. She’s a curious person who’s always looking for the next big party, and you’ll often find her getting restless if she feels like the party she’s at is boring or not her scene.

The holiday Gemini most identifies with is Mardi Gras. She loves drinking, trying new things, and bouncing from one venue to another, and with Mardi Gras, she really can have it all. She’s terribly indecisive when it comes to just about everything, so not having to worry about making definitive plans or staying in one place for too long is right up her alley. Plus, Mardi Gras is always exciting and she loves exciting parties.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

cancer important holidays zodiac signs

If you only know one thing about Cancer, it’s that she has a LOT of emotions – and that she isn’t afraid to express those feelings. But of all the emotional journeys that Cancer goes through, journeys of love are her favorite.

She’s the type of person to constantly let you know just how much she adores and cares about you, whether you’re her BFF or her significant other.

No one celebrates anniversaries like Cancer does. This is a very important holiday for her because it gives her a chance to go totally over-the-top with gifts, love, and affection. Whether it’s her wedding anniversary or another year of dating the same wonderful person, Cancer gets to be romantic and emotional on a day that’s dedicated to exactly that!

LEO (July 23 - Aug 22)

leo important holidays zodiac signs

Leo is all about herself, which isn’t always a bad thing. She knows that self-love is just as important as loving others, and she has quite a lot of love for herself. So much so that she knows how valuable it is to spoil herself every once in a while. And not only is Leo’s birthday an important holiday for her to do exactly that, it’s also her favorite holiday – duh.

On her birthday, Leo gets to be completely selfish. She can indulge herself at the spa or have everyone buy her drinks at the club, but it’s her day to do whatever she wants. She knows that being selfish all the time isn’t very attractive, but she likes to let loose on this special day. Leo is actually a lot more mature than everyone assumes, but she makes an exception on her birthday every year.

VIRGO (Aug 23 - Sep 22)

virgo important holidays zodiac signs

Virgo is the friend you always want to keep close to you throughout life because it feels like no one knows you better than she does. There’s just something about the way that she knows her friends and family inside and out that makes her irreplaceable. So it only makes sense that the most important holiday for Virgo would be one where she can do something thoughtful for the people she loves.

Any gift-giving holidays (think: the ones in winter and birthdays) are all days that get Virgo excited; this is her time to shine, after all! She gets to show off just how much she’s been paying attention to her loved ones this past year. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been hinting at something you want or mentioned it in passing, don’t worry – Virgo has been listening, has already bought it, and can’t wait to surprise you on your special day.

LIBRA (Sept 23 - Oct 22)

libra important holidays zodiac signs

Libra loves meeting new people because it gives her a chance to talk about herself and charm the pants off of someone (two things she loves to do). And what better place to meet new people than at a huge party, right? Parties are one of Libra’s favorite places to be for this exact reason, but it also doesn’t hurt that she gets to drink, too.

The best holiday for Libra to be her Libra self is a day that brings together drinking and strangers in a way that no other holiday can: St. Patrick’s Day. St. Patty’s Day is a day that pretty much celebrates getting drunk and getting crazy with people you’ve just met – so, definitely perfect for Libra who is both social and friendly.

Plus, she doesn’t have to plan anything to celebrate, which is like a dream come true for her.

SCORPIO (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

scorpio important holidays zodiac signs

What makes Scorpio so special isn’t her ability to be a ride or die friend or the fact that you can always count on her to be brutally honest. What makes Scorpio so special and awesome is how brave she can be in the face of danger.

If you think about it, no one is able to go into a situation completely aware of how dangerous or scary it may be and still come out looking like a bad ass – except her.

And what better holiday to celebrate this bravery and bad-assery (is that a word?) than the Fourth of July – a holiday all about being independent, awesome, and totally cool. This holiday is perfect for Scorpio because, while she embodies all of these traits, she’s also a totally fun-loving person who enjoys hanging out with friends and living it up – much like the rest of the country on the Fourth.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 - Dec 19)

sagittarius important holidays zodiac signs

For someone like Sagittarius, there needs to be a holiday that is so unique and one-of-a-kind that it would be impossible to copy or recreate – just like Sag herself. And if we want to get a little honest here, a holiday that some people love and some people can’t stand (because there’s always a mix of emotions when it comes to Sagittarius).

That holiday DOES in fact exist – and it’s called April Fool’s Day. Just like this holiday, Sagittarius is fun and curious, with a little bit of mischief involved, too. And much like Sagittarius, who is someone with a very strong personality that not everyone is onboard with, April Fool’s Day is a day that you either love or you hate… no in-between feelings.

CAPRICORN (Dec 20 - Jan 19)

capricorn important holidays zodiac signs

Depending on who you talk to, Capricorn can either be called “frugal” or “cheap” when it comes to money. She would much rather consider a purchase for months before actually buying it because she hates making the wrong decisions. She’s also a master of self-control, which means when she does come across a great sale, she knows that she doesn’t actually need to buy anything – no matter how badly she wants to.

This mix of having an iron grip on her money and only shelling out cash when she absolutely has to only makes it obvious that Capricorn’s most important holiday would be Black Friday. This is a day that is dedicated to deals and steals that would make Scrooge cry, which means it’s also right up Cap’s alley. Not only does she get to save up for one giant deal once a year, but she doesn’t have to worry about buyer’s remorse either.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

aquarius important holidays zodiac signs

One of Aquarius’ best qualities is that she is always able to be undeniably herself in pretty much any situation – and all without feeling weird or uncomfortable about what others think of her. Of course, if you’re going to be an Aquarius, this is pretty much a requirement (not to care what others think), but some of us can only feel this way certain times of the year.

Take Halloween, for example. It’s a holiday that is all about having fun, being yourself (or not), and letting loose. Like Aquarius, it’s a little weird and sometimes creepy, but always memorable.

Aquarius might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but you can’t deny that she makes an impression on people – a lot like your Halloween costume from last year! Plus, I think Aquarius likes being a little creepy, if you ask me.

PISCES (Feb 19 - Mar 20)

pisces important holidays zodiac signs

If you could describe Pisces with emojis or pictures, she would be all heart eyes, kisses, and flowers. Pisces is the type of person to get so excited when the topic of love is mentioned because she absolutely loves love. So, it only makes sense that the most important holiday for her would be Valentine’s Day; because nothing says love like chocolate, roses, and pretty cards.

Pisces is probably one of the sweetest signs of the zodiac and truly enjoys holidays like Valentine’s Day because it gives her a chance to be extra sweet to the people she loves. She also likes exchanging gifts and buying WAY too much candy, but it is a day that’s meant to celebrate each other. If anyone can pull off being a nerd about Valentine’s Day, it’s definitely Pisces; she’s got a lot of love in that heart of hers.
