Everywhere on the internet, there are many posts on what kind of person you are based on your zodiac sign. Although it may not seem much, surprisingly these posts can actually be fun and interesting when you know your zodiac sign, and the post is about a topic that interests you or is interesting.

In total there are 12 zodiac signs: 

Aries: March 21-April 19

Taurus: April 20- May 20

Gemini: May 21-June 20

Cancer: June 21-July 22

Leo: July 23-August 22

Scorpio: October 23-November 21

Sagittarius: November 22-December 21

Capricorn: December 22-January 19

Aquarius: January 20-February 18 

Pisces: February 19-March 20

The dates can be slightly different depending on the website, but for the most part, they are all pretty similar dates are based on the website Astrology Zodiac signs. 

Each sign is then split into 4 different elements which include: fire, earth, water, and air. The fire signs include Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius (Elite Daily). The earth signs include Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn (Elite Daily). The water signs include Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces (Elite Daily). Finally, the air signs include Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius (Elite Daily). Even among these elemental groups the signs also have their own role being: cardinal, fixed, and mutable.

The cardinal signs-Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn, are initiators of change and tend to hold leadership qualities influencing other zodiac signs (Your Tango). The fixed signs-Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, and Taurus, work calmly and work with steadiness, usually known to be determined and orderly (astrology). The mutable signs-Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini, and Virgo, mediate change and are described to be assistants through transitions or present diplomatic qualities (Live About). Despite all these confusing things about the zodiac signs, all someone needs to know is what their zodiac sign is to understand what a video or post is talking about.

On social media platforms like TikTok, people post videos saying things like, “This is the type of princess dress you would wear depending on your zodiac sign.” The video would then proceed to show different dresses, with people commenting under the videos either expressing their amazement or slight disappointment. Even among Harry Potter fans, the trend is very popular with zodiac signs being assigned to the different houses and roles. Personally, it is a very fun trend to look at when you see how people view your zodiac sign. It is also exciting to see what kind of dress or even what kind of outfits would suit you!

As a person who loves this zodiac trend, Norah Li (10) exclaimed, “I feel like the zodiac trend is fun and popular because people can feel like they are part of a group. The posts are also relatable or funny and they are just fun to share and connect with other people!” 

Despite all this huge chunk of information about zodiac signs, there are still more details on exactly what kind of characteristics or personalities each sign has. Although there is no need to go into detail about what kind of characteristics these zodiacs have, it is an interesting hobby to have and an interesting topic to discuss with anyone!
