Why You Think The Way You Do, By Zodiac Sign

Ever wonder why you, or someone else, thinks the way that they do? Every person in life forms their mentality at a young age. There are different ways of viewing thought-life. Emotional IQ is one of them, some look at a person's innate intelligence or aptitude.

But, in general, there are certain character traits found in your personality that explain the way you think. Your zodiac sign is one of them.

Thinking is something we all do. We may lie in bed and come up with a million comebacks that would have been perfect for that conversation we had two hours ago.

Or we may stand in line at the grocery store, anxiously wondering if we’re buying enough cookies for a birthday party later – and if anyone will notice they’re store-bought cookies if we put them on a fancy plate.

When our brains decide to work, or not work, can be connected to astrology, as some astrologers explain when considering horoscope personality traits. 


For example, Air signs tend to be deep thinkers who can be fairly flighty whereas fire horoscope signs rarely consider the consequences before acting. While most earth zodiac signs have predictable patterns of thinking grounded in reality, water signs let their emotions do the thinking.

Do your thinking patterns match your zodiac sign? Here's a brief explanation about how each zodiac sign thinks using information pulled from astrology, by horoscope date.

ARIES (March 21-April 19)

You listen to the fire in your heart that tells you the world is yours. You believe it. So why do you need to think about it? You prefer embracing impulsivity like a kid on Christmas morning (which is probably still how you act, anyway). Challenges are only opportunities, so you don’t save time to weigh the pros and cons.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20)

With a practical mind, you don’t like to dive head-first into danger. You’ve seen the damage over-confidence can cause, and you’re going to do everything in your power to avoid it. You were likely your parents’ favorite because you radiated responsibility and always seemed to have your life together. Maybe you had to-do lists pinned up around your room, or maybe you just kept to your schedule without them. Whatever the reason, you can’t deny that you’re a planner who loves to overthink.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20)

You’re a bit indecisive. OK, very indecisive. You enjoy being alone with your thoughts but appreciate it even more if you can share them with others. This can be risky, though, because you’re easily persuaded into changing your opinions. Remember that you’re allowed to have different thoughts, and you’ll feel much less concerned about how your thoughts are read.

CANCER (June 21-July 22)

You might not have needed to think about things too hard in life because you already picked up on the subtle signs that your friend is upset or your crush is interested in starting a relationship with you. Most of us don’t notice the small changes in their behaviors that imply they’re sad or ready for commitment, but you do. Try not to doubt your intuitive nature. It’s a gift.

LEO (July 23-August 22)

Your opinions are your opinions, and they haven’t changed much since you were a kid. Even though you find yourself in complicated situations, you’re confident that you can figure out how to escape it with the knowledge you already have. Still, you always think about others and constantly look for ways to give your time, money and advice to needy souls.

VIRGO (August 23-September 22)

You are methodical in your thinking patterns. If a test is scheduled for next month, you’re already halfway through studying. You need time to prepare for things like going out (who’s going to call the Uber?) and staying in (when should I start preheating the oven?). You’re always prepared for emergencies and need to be sure you’ve considered all possible outcomes.

LIBRA (September 23-October 22)

Your thought process centers on how others see you. You want to be liked and hate being alone, so confrontations are unthinkable. You’d rather suffer with a runny nose than ask for a tissue in the middle of a conversation, for instance. Finding peace is your goal, and you’ll think yourself over mountains to find it.

SCORPIO (October 23-November 21)

You are a true friend, but you can get jealous easily. You want only the best for your friends, yet your emotions betray you sometimes. Letting your distrusting feelings guide your thoughts can be a mistake, one you don’t want to make twice. Being passionate isn’t usually a problem, but try not to let it consume your thoughts and cloud your decision-making abilities.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22-December 21)

You’re always thinking about a way to escape, even if you feel content where you are. If not a literal escape to a different country, then a metaphorical escape through books or movies. You crave freedom in its rawest form and can’t shake the ridiculous thought of becoming a nomad or a Buddhist monk or something.

CAPRICORN (December 22-January 19)

Your family is your priority. You’re thinking about going home, making a huge family feast and cuddling on the couch with your spouse and kids. While your friends are out partying, you’re satisfied with a quiet night in watching movies with your loved ones. Your thoughts are overrun with your family’s well-being – leaving few thoughts left for yourself.

AQUARIUS (January 20-February 18)

You want to change the world and really believe it can change. Fighting for causes gives you a rush, and it only fuels your desire to help. As an optimist, you can’t be bothered to worry about the what ifs. You focus on what you can do right now to make a difference, which is admirable. Though, some of your thoughts on saving the world might need some adjustments.

PISCES (February 19-March 20)

You are kind of a loner, but that doesn’t mean you don’t concern yourself with others. In fact, you think about others before yourself. You have a selfless and trusting heart that can get you into trouble because not everyone thinks like you do.
