 What Is the Rarest Zodiac Sign?

Ever run into someone who shares your zodiac sign. If you're a Virgo or a Libra, chances are this is a common experience for you.

Virgo is the most common zodiac sign. Studies confirm that while the most common birth month is September, the least common is February.

What is the rarest zodiac sign?

Aquarius. Aquarius season starts January 20 and ends February 18. In addition to being the most idealistic, they are also the rarest zodiac sign.

Probably because it's the shortest month of the year, which results in fewer birthdays.

Even though Aquarius is the rarest zodiac sign, there are lots of famous Aquarians — Alicia Keys, Paul Newman, Jackie Robinson, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Galileo Galilei, Shakira, Corazon Aquino, Toni Morrison, Laura Dern, and more...

After Aquarians, Aries and Sagittariuses are the rarest zodiac signs. What they lack in numbers, however, they make up for in spunk.

Never cross an Aquarius, Aries, or Sagittarius. They embrace the people they love but are a little less compassionate towards their enemies.

If you haven't already noticed, Scorpios are everywhere, and not among the rarest of zodiac signs. In addition to being the most common, they're also the most likely to announce their sign in any given context.

Scorpios just can't help but brag about the fact that they are Scorpios. Aquarians, on the other hand, keep their mouths shut. Even though they are the rarest of them all, there are probably more Aquarians in your inner circles than you realize.

They are fueled by their own compassion.

Aquarians are compulsive when it comes to putting others before themselves.

Fueled by their sparkling compassion, their greatest hope is to save the world. It’s not so much that they forget to put themselves first, but rather actively decided to not. Most people we encounter in life, have no trouble thinking of themselves.

Known to root for the underdogs on a consistent basis, they throw their kindness like confetti. What's the point of making assumptions? The world is a better place when people have the freedom to truly be themselves.

Still, they're prone to putting walls up.

Privacy is essential to them. If you’re grappling with which of your friends to reveal your crush to, an Aquarius might be a strong confidante. They’re also not one to pry. The best thing about boundaries is that you don’t have to explain them. And an Aries is always respectful of that.

We could all learn a thing or two from this Aquarian mindset. If you are transparent about everything, you will start to disappear. Secrets are what keep your intuition alive.

​Easygoing as they are intellectual, Aquarians are the perfect balance of emotionally available and self-sufficient. In addition to being generous with their time, they are vigilant about respecting people’s personal space. Perhaps, because they too, requite lots of Me-Time in order to survive.

They practice what they tweet.

Social Media is like a magic act. Any Problematic Polly can create the illusion that they “wake up for wokeness.” It’s so easy to curate your personal truth away from them on social media. An Aquarius, however, knows that true activism comes from the consistency within.
