most sophisticated zodiac signs

Sophistication is a multi-faceted quality that your horoscope can't always predict. You can tell someone is sophisticated by the way they carry themselves. They’re confident, calm, and commanding. They don’t appear frazzled, discombobulated, or frantic.

One of the things that makes someone sophisticated is if they’re well-traveled. They’ve experienced different cultures, taken part in regional customs and they’ve interacted with many different kinds of people. They usually speak more than one language, too, and are genuinely interested in other people and are eager to learn from them.

Sophisticated people are classy. They have good manners — not because they’re entitled, but because they treat others with respect, the way they wish to be treated. 

When someone is sophisticated, they're self-assured, mature, and know how to navigate the world. They’re charming without being fake and nice without being cloying. They have standards but they're not snobbish.

Everything doesn’t come easily to someone who is sophisticated, though it may seem that way. They just seem to have a graciousness about themselves and a positivity. Their body language, the look on their face, and even their voices show that they’re sophisticated.

But if you trust in astrology, here are the most sophisticated zodiac signs, ranked from most to least.

1. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns sometimes get a bad rap — people think they're so hard-working and dependable that they're boring. The truth is Capricorns can be very sophisticated. They're dignified, confident, and mature. They'd never get intoxicated in public or lose their cool.

They're sensitive to other people and work to make them feel comfortable around them. They love to travel and learn new things. Capricorns garner respect and carry themselves in a sophisticated manner.

What makes a Sagittarius sophisticated? It's their love of travel and for experiencing new places, cultures, food, and people. Sagittarians are comfortable in their own skin and always show respect for others and themselves.

It's because they're so enthusiastic about new things that make them amazing conversationalists. Sagittarians know what's happening in the world because they consider themselves citizens of the world.

Leos are vibrant, dazzling individuals. They stand out in a crowd whether they are trying to or not. They're extremely attractive but it's not just how they look or what they wear, it's an inner excitement that causes people to look up to them and want to make them a part of their lives.

5. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

It's Libra's charm and graciousness that makes them sophisticated. They're the ultimate hosts, and it's important to them to make people feel comfortable and at ease. Libras tend to be well-rounded, well-traveled, and all-around great people. They tend not to be vulgar or lose control in public; they prefer to be harmonious in all things.

However, if they do get out of balance — for example, if they drink too much — they become much less sophisticated and classy. Luckily, that rarely happens.

6. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces have moments of sophistication — they'd never do something to make someone feel awkward and uncomfortable if they can help. They have a natural appreciation of art and culture which makes them sophisticated.

The problem is that some Pisces have moments of heavy duty insecurity where they just want to hide away from the world. If they'd just realize how amazing and fascinating they are, they'd see how truly sophisticated they can be.

7. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancers have a natural poise and beauty, but they can get derailed when their emotions come into play. A sophisticated person would hold back on the tears if they were at an event or a party, but Cancers need to fully experience their feelings as they feel them.

It would be dishonest to pretend they felt happy when they didn't, even if it made the person they were speaking to feel uncomfortable.

8. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Superficial Scorpios look sophisticated — they're beautiful and they seem to command attention wherever they go. The problem is that they can be very jealous and manipulative.

When they get obsessed, they don't care who they make feel uneasy or uncomfortable. They become focused on their objective and they tend to lose their social graces when they're fixated on a target.

10. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis can talk about almost every subject under the sun, so they have that going for them, they're just too flaky and confused to have that inner sophistication. Geminis have trouble being on time, and they're always losing things.

In other words, Geminis tend to be in a constant state of chaos which is the opposite of sophistication.
