The Most Artistic Zodiac Signs, Ranked

Artistic expression comes in many forms. You don't have to be creative to appreciate beauty or do art. 

When we think of artists, we shouldn’t only think about musicians or painters. Artistic people can be sculptors, graphic designers, comic book writers, poets, photographers, actors, and more.

One of the best things about being artistic is that there are so many different ways to express yourself that you can totally make something your own.

Even if you’re a photographer and someone else is a photographer (or insert another type of art here), it doesn’t mean the two of you will ever have to worry about your work being similar, especially when we all have our own unique vision we want to share with the world.

Some zodiac signs are more artistically inclined than others are, but that doesn’t mean that not all zodiac signs have the ability to be artistic. It just means that some signs are able to let themselves be more vulnerable than others when it comes to self-expression through art.

Let’s get one thing straight though. You do not have to be any good at art to be creative or artistic. Some people think that if they can’t draw something or if they have a hard time putting a story together that they’re just no good at being artistic.

In reality, you just need to learn how to let your guard down and be okay with being bad (I mean that in the best way possible). When we get too hung up on the fact that our poems down rhyme or that the lines we draw aren’t straight, a hobby or relaxing pastime stops being enjoyable and starts feeling like a chore.

Creativity can be so important to our careers, relationships, and self-care, but getting over that hump of worrying whether you’re good enough at being artistic makes it stressful. The time we spend on our phones and on social media, doing nothing is time we could be spending making something with our hands.

Not only does art have a way of making us feel happier and more relaxed, it can also help ease stress, anxiety, and depression, among other things. Clearly, art is good for us. And even if you’re not the most artistically inclined zodiac sign, it doesn’t mean you can’t find something artistic to do in your free time that makes you happy, whether it’s “good” or not.

Just a little something to think about. Here is how your horoscope sign experiences art, and which zodiacs are the most artistic, per astrology.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

What makes you one of the most artistic zodiac signs is your deep connection to music and the arts. You are very sensitive and emotional, which translates into whatever art form you prefer the most.

You almost always have your earbuds in, listening to new music, or are sketching something in your notebook. For you, art isn't always about sitting down and creating something huge. Sometimes, it's just doodling during class or writing a poem on the bus to work.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Like Pisces, you are very emotional and sensitive. These qualities make it easy for you to tap into that artistic side of you because you're not afraid to express yourself honestly through your art. Even if you're just making art for yourself, you still enjoy it.

You are a highly imaginative and creative zodiac sign, Cancer. You see the potential for art in a lot of things, not just in a blank sheet of paper. Just remember to love what you make without needing other people's approval. Art is about personal expression, not conforming to what other people want.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leo, you are one of the most passionate and dramatic zodiac signs – in a good way. This need for life and everything in it to be beautiful and exciting is how you get in touch with your artistic side.

Where other people would be nervous to express themselves through something that people are going to critique (like art), you like showing people parts of yourself that mean a lot to you.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

One of the reasons you're so artistic, Gemini, is your natural curiosity. You're one of those zodiac signs who will try anything once, and when it comes to exploring your artistic side, you're interested in learning more about how it can be a part of your life.

You are also very experimental. Once you get comfortable with your artistic side, you enjoy exploring different kinds of artistic expression to find the one (or two) that speaks to you the most. Singing, dancing, weaving – whatever! As long as you have an outlet to express yourself, you're happy.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

You are naturally a very expressive zodiac sign, Scorpio. But what you lack in vulnerability and being able to express yourself through words, you are able to do so through artistic expression. In fact, you prefer to express yourself through art.

Even if you're the only one who gets the true meaning of the colors you use in your paintings, or understands what your poems mean on a personal level, being able to share your art is still a way to show that you can be vulnerable in a way that feels comfortable to you.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra, you see art in the beautiful things in life. You might not always sit down with a pen and paper to write a story, or even pick up a paintbrush, but when it comes to decorating your abode and yourself, that's where your love of art shines.

You are creative because you know that artistic expression doesn't have to be what everyone else is doing. Your kitchen might have a certain artistic flow that you've been working on for ages, and your bedroom might be all about personal expression, and that's enough for you.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus, you are like Libra in that your idea of artistic expression isn't about what you put down on paper or in a song. Art can be about how you dress or how you decorate your home, too.

Material comforts and luxurious items are how you express yourself in your own home. You want people to see the kind of person you are when they walk into your home – the place where you 're most comfortable and yourself.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius, you are certainly one of the most original and different zodiac signs, that's for sure. You express your originality in your fashion, your opinions, and your personality. When it comes to artistic expression, however, that's a little harder for you to get down with.

Perhaps it's your preference for all things logical. You're not one for emotional expression, so it's hard for you to let your guard down enough to express yourself emotionally through art. You are still capable of expressing yourself in other ways, but not always through art.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

It's not artistic expression in the traditional sense, but you see art in experience and real life, Sagittarius. Life can be beautiful and interesting, and when you experience life to the fullest, it's kind of like art.

As for traditional artistic expression, it's not always your favorite thing to sit down and do what everyone else is doing. You're a very unique zodiac sign, and unless you can find a way to make traditional artistic expression fit your unique personality, you're not interested.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)


You're a very analytical and logical zodiac sign, Virgo, similar to Aquarius. You have the ability to express yourself through art, but you prefer to express yourself in other ways that aren't as emotional.

The reason you're not as artistic as the other zodiac signs is because you can be very hard on yourself. Artistic expression is about letting go and being vulnerable, which can be hard for you when you're your own biggest critic.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

When it comes to artistic expression, Capricorn, you don't have a lot of it. You have a lot of other talents, of course, but art is not one of them. It's not so much that you can't be artistic but that it takes a lot of practice.

For you, it's hard for you to be artistic because you're very disciplined. When it comes to artistic expression, you need to allow yourself to let loose and become uninhibited, which are two traits that Capricorns do not often have.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

A lot of the time, making art means sitting in one place or doing one thing for a long time to produce something beautiful. While you are certainly capable of producing something beautiful, Aries, it's the doing one thing for a long time that you have problems with.

If you want honesty, you're much more suited to physical expression – something that can give you the opportunity to stay active and keep you on your toes. If there's a way for you to mix physical and artistic expression, you might become more artistic, otherwise, not so much.
