As you know, each zodiac sign has a reputation, and the negative aspects of the signs are what people focus on. You may hear phrases like ‘so two-faced like a typical Gemini’ or ‘so attention-seeking like a typical Leo’ said often.
But the fact of the matter is that signs have a particular reputation, whether they are positive or negative due to the element they are tied to. Fire signs such as Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius are seen to be active and passionate. Then Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius are mental and communicative because they are air signs. The Earth signs such as Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn are into anything tangible and physical such as food, money, and possession. And the water signs such as Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces are emotional and intuitive.
Let’s now delve into the most common question astrologers get asked about each zodiac sign right now.
Aries – Why Are They So Competitive?
Aries is the first fire sign of the zodiac; it is a cardinal sign known as the ram. They are naturally initiating, energetic, and passionate as Mars rules the sign. They want to be the best at anything they do, and they are highly motivated to get there. But the thing is that Aries can be excellent leaders and coaches to have on your side to help you succeed as well.
You want the Aries to be on your side because they will help motivate you and cheer you on.
Taurus – Why Do They Get So Attached Easily
Taurus is a fixed earth sign, and the fixed aspect of the sign makes them stable, which means they don’t start or end anything; they maintain things. And the fact that they are an earth sign shows that they are quite sensual and love anything luxurious as Venus rules it.
Add those two aspects together, and Taureans are known to keep holding onto anything dear to them. The bull represents them, which is also why they are stubborn. They don’t want to give up what is dear to them.
Gemini – Why Is Gemini So Smart and Not Reliable?
Gemini is an air sign, and it is mutable, which means everything changes with them. The way they communicate, their moods, and the way they learn. They are also a mental sign as they are an air sign, which means whatever thoughts are in their head at a particular time is how they feel. Add that to the fact that Mercury rules it.
That can change instantly, which is why Gemini is one of the last signs to stick to a commitment, making them unreliable. Therefore, if a Gemini warns you about them not being reliable because they are well aware of that, you must believe them.
Cancer – Why Are Cancers So Emotional?
Cancer is a cardinal water sign, and that means they are the most emotional of the signs, including the other two water signs. The Moon is the ruler of Cancer, which represents oceans and tides. That means heavy emotions.
Their intense emotions are what make Cancer to be highly protective of their homes and families. Their nature is also why they cry at the drop of a hat and are incredibly intuitive and empathetic.
Leo – Why Are Leos Popular and Confident?
Leo is a fixed fire sign that means they are passionate and maintain what they are passionate about. Since the Sun rules their sign, the Sun rules the ego. Leos are passionate about preserving their egos, and they know how to win people over with their confidence and creativity. Their creativity also influences them to dress up, so they win others over as well.
Those are the reasons that Leos like to be in the spotlight. They do have a lot to show you and want to entertain you in their own way.
Virgo – Why Are Virgos Perfectionists?
Virgo is a mutable earth sign that means their focus is on anything tangible that involves food, work, and health. They are mutable, which involves them having to do a lot of fine-tuning with anything that involves the above. Mercury rules it, so they are highly analytical and can be obsessive with getting things right.
Their work ethic is excellent, they are excellent service providers, and they care about health. But they can get overboard, which brings them nothing but stress, and they defeat the purpose of staying healthy.
Libra – Why Are Libras Charming but Passive-Aggressive?
Libra is a cardinal air sign, which means they will initiate communication with others. However, the fact that Venus rules Venus makes them the most social sign to value relationships. Libra is very concerned about balance and justice but can be indecisive.
They start up with relationships and partnerships because they naturally know how to do it with their charm. Remember, they are charming because of their planetary ruler. However, their passive-aggression comes from the fact that they don’t like conflict and give up their own needs and wants to make others happy.
Scorpio – Why Is Scorpio Protective or Vengeful?
Scorpio is a fixed water sign, which means they are emotional, intuitive, and hold onto their emotions since it is fixed. Pluto is a transformative and extreme planet, which is why Scorpio is intense, passionate, and can be either hot or cold.
Scorpios are known to be excellent when it comes to intimacy for that reason. They are highly protective of those who they trust. But if they are betrayed, they are incredibly vengeful. Therefore, you do not want to make a Scorpio angry. You will regret it.
Sagittarius – Why Do Sagittarians Seem Happy and Why Are They Single?
Sagittarius is a mutable fire sign, which means they are passionate and energetic, but their passion brings them to different places because of being mutable. They are always on the go. And that is why they are adventurous.
And that is also why they don’t like commitment as being tied down is one thing they want to avoid, hence being single. But Jupiter is the jovial planet that rules Sagittarius, which is also why they are optimistic and adds to their thirst for knowledge and adventure.
Capricorn – Why Are Capricorns So Ambitious?
Capricorn is a cardinal earth sign, which means they are about anything tangible, especially money, and they will always find a reason to be ambitious to make money. That is shown by the fact that it is a cardinal sign. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, which is why they are highly disciplined as well.
Capricorn does not see the need to have fun because life is all about work and no play, according to the sign. That question is now answered.
Aquarius – Why Are Aquarians Detached and Confusing?
Aquarius is a fixed air sign that means they are highly progressive in their thinking, which does not change them. They are ruled by Uranus, which is why they are detached, and since the planet sticks out, that is also why Aquarius does as well.
They are hard to understand, and Aquarius is excellent at making it that way.
Pisces – Why Does Pisces Want to Be Alone and Why Are They Highly Sensitive?
Pisces is a mutable water sign and is the last sign of the zodiac. They are highly sensitive and are always thinking about the past, the future, and rarely are grounded in the present. They are highly intuitive, as well.
They need to be alone because they are highly empathetic, and it is difficult for them to be around too many people. They pick up their energies like a sponge. Sensitive and dreamy Neptune rules Pisces, which adds to their traits.
There you have the most common questions about each sign answered. Having this extra insight on them should give you an idea of what the signs are about and why they are the way they are. However, if you happen to meet a reliable Gemini or a Leo that lacks confidence, never forget that they have their rising sign, their moon sign, and other factors playing a role in their chart.
The sun sign only makes up a fraction of who you are. You have so many other components in your personal horoscope that influences you a lot more than your sun sign.
