How You Inspire Others, Based on Your Zodiac Sign
Aries (March 21 – April 19): By Always Acting First
Aries is a sign that acts first and deals with the consequences later, and other people really admire that about you. You can‘t stand inaction, and when you see injustice or any other problem that needs to be solved, you‘re more than happy to jump in and come up with a solution. While some may see your actions as impulsive, other people recognize that you‘re a go-getter who simply wants results. When everyone else is afraid to do something, you‘re more than happy to step up to the plate.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): By Always Being There
Anyone who‘s familiar with the zodiac knows that they can count on a Taurus. You‘re the backbone of your social circle, and people come to you when they‘re in trouble or just need someone to hear them out. People wish they could be as dependable and grounded as you—or at least that they knew more people they could turn to when they needed help. You emanate strength and stability, and your guidance has led many a friend in the right direction.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): By Smiling Through Everything
Gemini is the friendliest sign, and most people know that you tend to put your friends first and everything else second. You‘re sociable and open with people, and you tend to have a smile on your face no matter what. Even if you‘re not necessarily in the best mood, you tend to radiate positivity. Your warmth can be infectious, helping everyone else feel better about whatever they‘re going through. By putting a smile on, regardless of your feelings, you‘ve managed to inspire others to smile, too.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): By Thinking With Your Heart First
Cancer always leads with their heart, rather than their head. When other people struggle between what they want and what they logically know they should do, you never falter. You always go with what is right in your heart, rather than what the facts might say. While your emotions aren‘t always a strength, when it comes to the important things, it tends to lead you in the right direction. People respect the fact that you can make a difficult decision in moments—even if it wasn‘t difficult for you at all.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): By Constantly Exuding Confidence
There‘s a reason why people think of Leo as the king of the jungle. You‘re usually at the top of the totem pole, immediately commanding attention in any room you enter, and everyone knows you to be bursting with proud confidence. That isn‘t to say that you don‘t doubt yourself sometimes, or feel like it‘s all for show, but the overall effect is always that you‘re the most self-certain person around. People look up to you and hope to be just as fearless in their own skin.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22): By Being a Treasure House of Knowledge
As much as it might sometimes appear that Virgo is born with an innate knowledge of the world, you‘ve actually had to work hard to learn everything that you have. Thankfully, your curiosity drives you to constantly seek out more information. You‘re a perfectionist, and you‘d prefer to be prepared for all eventualities, so you learn. Others realize if they have a question, chances are, you‘ll either have the answer or know the fastest way to find it. They wish they knew as much as you, even if they don‘t realize how hard you worked to get to that point.
Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22): By Never Picking Sides
Peaceful, loving Libra cares most about maintaining balance in the world, so when others are at odds with one another, you never, ever pick sides. While this is likely to temporarily earn you the ire of both sides, it‘s actually the right decision to make in the end. By remaining neutral, you‘re refusing to add fuel to the fire, and helping both parties realize they‘re partially to blame for the conflict. When things smooth over, they may not appreciate what you did for them, but anyone looking in from the outside will see how much you truly care.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): By Being Authentic
Scorpio doesn‘t bend their will to anyone. You tend to be a little bit guarded, and you don‘t open yourself up to people unless they earn your trust, but no one can accuse you of being a fake because you always live by your own rules. Though they won‘t always say it to your face, people are drawn to your commitment to doing you, regardless of what other people think. They find you mysterious and intriguing, and that makes them eager to learn more about you.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): By Facing Your Fears
Just because Sagittarius is up for anything and willing to try new—and sometimes even scary—things doesn‘t mean that you‘re entirely fearless. Things actually scare you all the time, but you thrive off the fact that you‘re willing to face these fears in an effort to put them behind you. In fact, you recognize fear as something that can propel you forward and unlock your best self, rather than something to back away from. When others see you confronting what frightens you most, they feel inspired to tackle their own worries as well.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): By Setting an Example
Capricorn‘s powerful determination and ambition are apparent to just about anyone they meet. You‘re a hard worker who gets things done, and those struggling to do the same often find themselves wishing they could only keep up. As much as you urge others to do their best and push them to give it all they‘ve got, that can only get people so far. By setting a good example, however, you can teach people to motivate themselves.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): By Never Backing Down
Independent Aquarius is a free thinker who‘s as original as they come. You dedicate your life to the causes that matter, and you prefer stimulating, brainy conversations over small talk. You‘ve never been one to go along with the crowd. You may not always consider yourself a leader, but you‘re definitely not a follower, and people take notice. Even if your ideas are unpopular, you don‘t back down from what you believe in. Others deeply admire your strong moral core.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): By Dreaming Big Dreams
Pisces can be more of a dreamer than a doer, but that doesn‘t mean your dreams don‘t ever amount to anything big. You‘ve always allowed your imagination to run wild, and you have more creative ideas than you know what to do with. Most of the time, the majority of these ideas swim around in your head for a while before you forget them, but when you do take the time to jot them down or share them with others, people really take notice. They understand the enormity of your dreams and envy that they weren‘t their own.
