person who is extremely self-aware doesn't need approval from a significant other or to dress like their best friend – they are confident in the skin they are in.

If you are self-aware, your environment does not affect you personally; in fact, you thrive off of being able to shine in any situation.

You have an unwavering sense of self, sometimes with arrogance getting in the way. If you think you are self aware, you would be able to accept both your strengths and weaknesses in life.

Being confident is key to being self-aware, but accepting that you might also be a bit cocky at times is also part of the deal.

I mean, everyone has some sense of self-awareness. If we didn't, we wouldn't be able to thrive in any social situation.

If you don't pass out or act like a complete fool in a public setting, you're probably self-aware to some capacity. Knowing yourself, and I mean really knowing yourself, is the first step in becoming the queen of self-awareness.

Some zodiac signs are more self-aware than others – which isn't always a bad thing. While you want to strive to achieve self-awareness, you also want to avoid being sooooo self-aware that you act like you're better than everyone else.

Don't feel bad if you are a little on the shy and lacking self confidence; there are plenty of ways to come out of your shell and love the person you are.

So, if you fall under a sign that is extremely self-aware, I'm proud of you for knowing exactly who you are – you go, girl!

If you find yourself a little unaware of thy self, don't worry! Every day is a fresh start to learning to love every inch of you.

ARIES (March 21- 19)

As a fire sign, you are constantly looking for competition; this can get in the way of truly owning who you are without the judgment of someone else. Your confidence, optimism, and determination make you move forward in life and always put yourself first.

You are very self-aware – especially when it comes to being yourself at a party or social situation. However, don't let that overconfidence and need for competition destroy your self-awareness.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus, you have trouble accepting your faults and admitting when you have done something wrong. However, your protective and friendly nature makes you the perfect best friend to others. You know how to help out someone in need and are very reliable.

Your practicality for knowing when to help others makes you somewhat self-aware. However, your stubbornness and possessive nature hinders your ability to be completely self-aware.

Don't let others opinions distract you from how you really feel about yourself. Take criticism with a grain of salt and learn to move past your mistakes.

GEMINI (May 21- June 20)

Gemini, you can talk up a storm and are always prepared for a quick-witted conversation. Your excellent communication skills make you a top-ranked self-awareness icon.

However, don't let this get to your head. You know you sometimes have feelings that are inconsistent and waver in your opinions.

In order to truly maintain self-awareness, you need to stick to your gut. Don't let the negative voice in your head make you question yourself. Your friends love you for a reason, but they also know they might not be able to trust what you say.

CANCER (June 21- July 22)

Cancer, you know you can be a highly emotional water sign. Being in tune with your emotions isn't always a bad thing; in fact, your sympathy for others and loyalty makes your friends view you as self-aware.

However, your rapid emotions can get in the way you finding your true self. Don't let you constant shift in moods define you as a person. Know and love yourself, and self-awareness will follow. Try to let clarity overpower your emotions when you start to doubt yourself.

LEO (July 23 – August 22)

Leo, you know you are self-aware. Your ability to be a leader and your overconfidence makes you top-ranked on the self-awareness scale. That being said, don't let your cockiness overpower your ability to stay level headed.

Let your warm-heart override your arrogance and stop being self-centered. You are so self-aware, but at times lose sight of those around you. Share the spotlight and let others join in on your fun.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)

Virgo, your analytic and hard-working nature makes you a favorite among your bosses and peers. You're over-critical and can be extremely hard on yourself and others, which can sometimes hinder your ability to be self-aware.

You do things for others without asking for recognition and pay attention to the smallest details. Your overall ability to let others shine while you stand aside, knowing your work is enough makes your self-awareness rise above others. Due to your need to criticize yourself too harshly, you can become too self-aware at times. Don't push yourself to the point of exhaustion.

LIBRA (September 23- October 22)

Libras, you are the most self-aware sign above all others. Your constant need for balance and harmony and your ability to remain fair in all situations makes you extremely self-aware – in the best way!

You can see the ups and downs in every point of view and have the ability to be a great leader when you want to be. You aim to always fix the things you aren't proud of and work towards complete self-love. Way to go Libras!

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)

Oh Scorpios, you let your jealousy get the best of you. Your highly emotional and secretive nature can tend to conflict with your self-awareness. Since part of your sign is your ability to be so in tune with your emotions, you do have the ability to connect deeply with others.

Your constant need to analyze and reflect on things can broaden your self-awareness as well, since you take the time to think through your actions. Don't question yourself Scorpios, just do!

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)

Another fire sign, your energetic and outgoing nature makes you well liked by others. You embrace the new and reflect on the old, which helps bring you to a higher level of self-awareness. You make promises with people that you can't always keep and take on more than you can manage.

You are too self-aware to the point when you think you know more than you do. While we all wish we could have the glass half full, sometimes you need to look at things from a different perspective in order to be the best you can be.

CAPRICORN (December 22- January 19)

The Blair Waldorf of signs, you can be condescending at times. You want things exactly your way and to be as precise as possible – this leading to judgment when things don't go as smoothly as you hoped.

If you pushed your judgmental nature aside and focused on bettering yourself, your self-awareness level would rise dramatically. It is good to be serious and work with a purpose, but it is also good to throw a little spice into your life.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)

Another high up on the self-aware ranking, your independent water sign nature makes you superior above others. You are intellectual and think through things before jumping in.

While you can be temperamental and unwavering in your opinions, you are grounded and know what you want in life. Find the people you vibe with and bounce off of each others awareness – you'll find yourself thriving in these situations.

PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

Too self-aware to a point, you let people in who you shouldn't always trust, Pisces. You are too friendly and selfless that sometimes people walk all over you.

You are aware of yourself, but not the things and people around you. Let your wise nature in and be aware in all areas of life, not just yourself. You are loved for being a sensitive and old soul, so don't let the wrong people take that part of you away.
