Each zodiac sign has a specific personality with likes and dislikes to match.

The overall goal of astrology is to help you discover your life's true meaning and what your future will hold.

It helps guide you along your journey and can give others a snapshot of your character.

You'll notice as you dive into the world of astrology that each sign is a member of one of the four elements: Air, Water, Fire, or Earth.

These classifications help narrow down which zodiac signs are linked and which are not.

For example, if you are a fire sign (Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius) you are considered to be very dynamic, driven, and overly passionate.

When deciding whether or not you're compatible with someone – whether that be a friend or a potential lover – you can look to see if their values and horoscope is aligned with yours.

While you shouldn't automatically rule someone out based on their zodiac sign, it can be helpful and even entertaining to compare.

Astrology can be different for everyone – some may view it as the end all be all when it comes to making major life decisions and others may just scroll through their phones for some fun astrology articles in their free time.

Whichever level of astrology fandom you fall under, it is useful to know what your zodiac sign means when it falls under a particular zodiac sign.

ARIES (March 21- 19)

If you have a personal planet in the sign of Aries, you are a fierce and strong-willed fire sign. You are the first sign listed in the zodiac, which means you symbolize new beginnings and making the most of every day.

You strive to be the best at everything you do – and if you can come in first place, even better. You know what you want and you go for it, even though you tend too impulsive at times.

As a fire sign, you are known as being very active and always ready to run to the rescue if someone you love is in trouble.

You let the Sun guide you through your journey; you are always organized and ready for the day ahead.

You know you have strong talents and strive to make them better as your time goes on. Your confidence is key and you can always count on a staple red lip to turn heads.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

Personal planets in the sign of Taurus, are strong and stubborn. As an Earth sign you are able to take in the world around you and view situations from all perspectives.

Your well-rounded nature makes you easy to talk to. You never take what the Earth provides you for granted – you appreciate the good and bad weather.

Your ability to see beauty in all forms makes you easily attracted to anyone and everything. Your voice is a calming sensation in a world full of chaos.

Others may view your commitment to the Earth as a negative trait, but remember to see yourself as stubborn in the best ways.

Gemini says you have the ability to adapt quickly to your surroundings. Your mind can flow from one being to the next, harvesting deep and meaningful connections with other souls.

As the season begins to turn warm, you hope to inspire others and spark change. You care so deeply for those around you and you try not to let your nerves be your downfall.

As a Gemini, you enjoy a short trip with friends or a long trip around the universe – either way, you are ready to spark a conversation with those around you.

CANCER (June 21- July 22)

Cancer, your emotions are controlled by the Moon, which makes them change rapidly with nightfall. You feel so hard that sometimes it hurts to care deeply for others.

Regardless of that pain, you let your emotions flow like the water beneath your feet and try to blend in with your surroundings – even if it can be difficult at times.

Yes, you may be moody Cancer, but your bravery makes you able to push past your impending negative thoughts.

Being of a highly emotional stature, you treasure your family and friends more than anything. While your moods may shift, your relationship with your family will never waver.

When you find someone who understands your mind, Cancer, hold onto them. If you are willing to let them in, they are worth keeping in your life.

LEO (July 23 – August 22)

Leo, with golden amber that shines down from the Sun, you radiate warmth and compassion. As a natural-born leader, you take control and walk with your head held high towards the sky.

No amount of shade can get in your way of seeing the Sun and pushing past other people's ignorance.

Your ego grows as the day grows; each step you take is towards better self-awareness and understanding of your life's purpose.

Other signs may be jealous of your achievements and may try to crush your spirit, but don't let anyone force you underground. You are a fire sign, one of the fiercest in the game.

Virgo, another Earth sign ruled by the planet Mercury, you pay attention to every little detail under the Sun. You listen closely to every conversation in order to hear the most important details of the story.

You try your best not to let others control you or let their criticisms in. Since you are so eager to be the best of the best, you are extremely organized and always ready to have the information needed at the ready.

Extremely clean, you live a melodic ,and to some, "perfect" life.

You know that is not true though, because with the end of summer comes the beginning of autumn and that means your cold nature may shine through. Focus on organizing your own life, Virgo, not others.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)

Scorpio, as a water sign you are a rare mix of both passionate and sensitive, yet assertive and powerful. You differ from the other water signs, as you can be full of emotion, but also extremely secretive and sneaky.

You are controlled by the planet Pluto, which makes sense considering everyone is still in awe of Pluto and questioning its place in the universe. Just as you question yourself and those around you with a lack of trust and a pinch of jealousy.

You can seek out dishonesty with the flick of your wrist and know exactly who you want in your life. Nobody can cross a Scorpio, now can they?

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)

Sagittarius, ruled by the planet Jupiter and the epitome of a fire sign. You live for freedom and push the boundaries in life. You never settle for less than you deserve and strive to be the funniest in the room.

You need to be careful when you make promises, as you tend not to pull through on your delivery. You are ruled by the largest planet in the zodiac, which makes your need to take on more than you can handle an accurate trait.

You cannot carry the world on your back – you are going to need help along the way. You bring in a new season, full of compassion and love. Let your optimism drive you, Sagittarius, through this new and wholesome chapter in your life.

CAPRICORN (December 22- January 19)

Capricorn, as an Earth sign you are responsible for bringing in the new year. You celebrate new beginnings with friends and family, but your need to stick to traditions year after year can prevent you from truly seeking change.

Since you are ruled by the planet Saturn, you are known for being extremely responsible and sometimes unforgiving in nature. As the Earth rotates around the Sun, you are bound to discover more things you don't like or agree with.

You can be too disciplined, to a fault. You may expect the worst out of new situations, but come the new year, you may be experiencing life in a new and exciting way.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)

Aquarius, as an air sign you have many different aspects to your personality. On the one hand, you are very analytical in nature and think deeply about every situation.

You can be quiet and reserved when you have your thinking face on. On the other hand, you are also very energetic around the people you love the most. You are ruled by the planet Uranus, which makes you both enclosed but passionate at the same time.

You want to help change the world, maybe with a specific cause in mind.

You skim the waters and try to discover new and innovative ideas to help the Earth be the best it can be. You cannot be constrained in life because you so badly want to help everyone you come across. A natural-born humanitarian.

PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

Pisces, the last but not least sign, ruled by Neptune. As a water sign, you are wise beyond your years and gentle in your advice giving.

Your biggest wish in life is to be the most selfless person in the room and to be kind to everyone you come across. With a heart as big as Neptune, you have an empathetic way about you that draws others in. Some may tell you that you are connected to the arts and that is true.

You love the way music or paintings can tell a story. You hope to one day capture the world as you see it through your artistic abilities.
