While some are quick to dismiss astrology as a pseudoscience, humans have been using the alignment of the planets and stars for everything from navigation to rituals. Today, people look at their natal charts as a way to evaluate their personalities and find an explanation as to what defines their character.Some take their horoscopes very seriously, and plan their day and interactions accordingly; others use it just for fun.

The zodiacs are grouped into four categories according to the elements: Water (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces), Earth (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn), Fire (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius), and Air (Libra, Gemini, Aquarius). Signs under the elements have distinct but similar traits. Fire signs tend to be described as passionate, Air signs are flexible, Earth signs are realists, and Water signs are intuitive.

Though horoscopes aren’t always true, it is fun to read up on them and see how they relate to our personalities. Here are some common misconceptions about each sign:

Aries (March 21-April 19):


Aries are seen as angry and explosive. Maybe it’s because you care so much and all that emotion pours out in everything you do; maybe it’s because you don’t let people walk all over you and that is seen as too abrasive. They have incredible leadership skills, motivation, and energy.

Taurus (April 20-May 20):

 

You guys are seen as lazy and stubborn; what people don’t know is that you work hard for what you earn and you like to appreciate the finer things in life. You have a taste for luxury and are always seeking new adventures.

Gemini (May 21-June 20):

 

Geminis are always called two-faced, conniving, and rambunctious; what’s great about Geminis is that you are flexible and sociable. They obviously aren’t going to treat every person the same, they are going to adapt to their personalities, which is probably why people think they are fake. Their heart is in the right place and they evolve with new information.
