zodiac signs who can read others' energy

Over the last couple of decades, the idea of "light and energy" work has come to our attention. Energy workers are people who are perceptive enough to intuit what is going on in another person, and offer help if needed. Those readers may also perform energy healing, and are sensitive, aware and generally interested in healing the person they come into contact with.

Not everyone believes in this kind of work or even spiritual energy, and it's always good to keep a healthy skepticism going on when working with someone who says they are a healer; they may be, although they may also be a charlatan.

Is there a real thing? An actual human being who can read the energy of another? Yes. Every single one of us, in fact. And a lot of it has to do with our zodiac signs and astrology.

You know how you can detect when someone is hiding something? That's reading someone's energy. Same goes for knowing when person is angry or depressed. It's not just about the facial expression, it's something you pick up on, and it's undeniable — that energy reading.

Metaphysical healing practices such as Reiki rely solely on the focus of energy in the body. Reiki practitioners are keen on being able to figure a person out, mentally, physically and emotionally, all because they have become experts on reading another's energy.

Which 6 zodiac signs are the best at reading others' energy?

1. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

The ultimate psychic and energy reader, Aries is so astute, it's a wonder they're all not opening up practices in the healing arts. One might not think that fairy Aries would have the patience to deal with an invisible variable, but they are actually expert at picking up on what's going on in another person.

Their way of helping would be to identify what's wrong and then to talk about it in detail, for the purpose of allaying any fears in the person who's energy is "off."

2. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

If there's a sign that would be associated with healing and energy work, it would have to be Cancer. It is not just something that comes naturally for Cancer — it's their birth rite; they own the field.

It's a Cancer you'll find at the day spa, figuring out what you need in order to make your spa experience perfect. Oh, sure, we all love aromatherapy, but Cancer knows what essential oil you'll need to heal whatever troubles may ail you.

3. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo always gets the short end of the stick when it comes to descriptions, but the truth is, those born under the sign of Virgo are helpful, compassionate, loving people who can pick up on just about everyone in the room. Because they are Virgos, they are naturally difficult, which makes their help unwanted.

But the truth is, if they can only bypass that "stuck up hateful" reputation of theirs, they can really see into a person and help. (Fun fact: Virgo loves to help — they just don't want you to know it!)

4. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20) 

Very perceptive and almost uncanny in their findings, Taurus is surprisingly open to the invisible worlds, and, as healers, they excel. You may not find them doing Reiki as it's a bit too tame for their tastes, but you will find them in occupational therapy, working on patients that are in physically compromised positions.

They know where you hurt because they make great massage therapists. After all, isn't a great massage therapist more than just someone who rubs your back? Oh, yes, and Taurus is that worker who knows exactly where you need relief... because they can read your energy.

5. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius is good at reading the energy of others because they want to. They want to help. They were born into this world with an incredible sense of intuition, and this can work in the medical world as well as in the metaphysical circles.

They take jobs in medicine, much like House, who was able to diagnose through intuition. Sagittarius is patient and compassionate; if you are down, they will sense it and will help you work through it.

6. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

It makes sense that the fire signs are perceptive and able to see past the facade we all hide behind, and this is because the fire is light, and equipped in all fire signs is this light that shines upon everything, revealing all that needs to be known. Leo will find themselves as the leader in a crowd simply because they give off a leader-like energy... and they use that magnetism to purvey the world around them.

They know when you need peace, love, healing, and they provide it to you in a way you can accept it because they are exceptional at reading another's energy.
