Whenever you hear someone described as spunky, they seem to be talking about a small child or an older person. No young adult or middle-aged person wants to be described as spunky. Calling someone this term can sometimes come off as a little condescending and obnoxious, but it's actually a compliment.

If someone has a spunky personality, would it be due in some part to astrology? If your zodiac sign is one that tends to face their fears and stands up for they believe in, it has a lot to do with your personality. The spunky zodiac signs are brave, bold, and fearless. They may not think of themselves as brave, but they still never hesitate when they need to defend someone, or an idea, or themselves.

You can’t hold a spunky person down — they’re fighters and assertive no matter what their age is. They like to have fun and live large. Spunky people tend to be impulsive because they often act without thinking things through. They react to what’s happening and then they act without overthinking or even considering the consequences.

So, if you’re thought of as spunky, be proud that others see you as someone who is determined, courageous, and outspoken. You might cause a scene, but in the big picture, it’s a good thing.

5. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Sometimes something small is the bravest thing you can do. One of the things that Pisces do is to take responsibility when they've done something wrong and to apologize. There's a lot of power in saying that you're sorry, and many people aren't courageous enough to do it.

Pisces will always help those who need it, and they're very generous with second chances. They will give someone the benefit of the doubt and take a chance that whatever unkind or irresponsible thing that the person did before, they won't do it again. Sometimes Pisces gets burned, but they still remain compassionate.
