Acting is a part of life. We all do it to some degree, and if it's not professional, there's a good chance we're acting to stay alive. Survival is the motivation here, and the desire to keep on keeping on is sometimes what gives us good reason to pretend we're someone or something we're not. In other words, sometimes we have to act just to stay alive.

In astrology, there are some zodiac signs who make the best actors and may catch on to that as small children. If they excel at pretending, they may very well go on to become professional actors. Actors have always been needed, and we have come to put our actors up on pedestals, making them into gods, for our entertainment pleasure.

We act in our real lives as a form of manipulation as well. Pretend to be sick and we get sympathy. Pretend to be down and out and we get money. Pretend to be someone you're not, and you get all the benefits that any con artist would get. Pretend to be a major character in a major motion picture, and you get an Academy Award.

So, whether you act to get by, or you act to get accolades, we all tend to act at one point in our lives. Some folks, however, are gifted in this department, and according to the zodiac, they rise above and exceed all of our expectations.

1. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

You are all about the stage and screen. You are not only great at acting, but you're great at hustling yourself right where you need to be, to be seen by all.

As a natural show-off, stuff like walking on to a stage before thousands of people is nothing; you aren't happy unless you achieve world domination, which isn't far off when you're as ambitious and talented as you are, Leo.

2. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

You can't help yourself: you're an actor — and a good one. You act to emphasize your point. You act to make people like you. You give the mob what they want because you're a people pleaser and you always know how to bring out the best in others.

Your naturally pushy personality works well here; you use it to manipulate others, but always to their own benefit. You're the actor who knows how to get the desired effect, time after time.

3. PISCES (February 19 - March 10)

If there's a crowd out there that can love you and give you the attention you desire, you're going to find it in theatre works. You love stepping into the spotlight and hogging all that groovy attention because your whole life revolves around getting attention.

What better career could there be for you other than acting? It's a natural fit for you, and you're damned good at it too!

4. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Why deal with real life when you can play a character and bypass all that nasty reality? You are a great actor, Virgo, and that is because you are a perfectionist to the core.

You don't accept mediocrity in yourself, and that means when you decide to do some professional "fooling," you take it very seriously. You are convincing no matter what role you take on.

5. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You are a talented actor mainly because anything that takes you into a fantasy world is a good thing. You do not like reality, and the world of acting is just a natural stop for you.

You act because you are interested in "being" the character, which takes you away from the troubles of the real world. You act fearlessly because, in real life, you are fearless and you want to translate that courageousness into theatre.

6. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You love the adoration of a crowd of worshipful followers, and you never disappoint when it comes to giving them the show they came for. You're known for your ability to act your way out of any situation, and you're certainly not shy when it comes to standing up and being seen.

You're unafraid of the public, and though you prefer your home situation to that of a theatre, if you hear the word "Curtain," you're ready, willing and able to make your grand entrance.
