Aries (March 20 – April 19)

Ah, Aries—you love everything about fall. As the first sign in the zodiac, change is one of the markers of your presence. You're always on the hunt for activity and you hate anything stagnant or motionless, so the constant change associated with autumn makes fall your favorite time of year. You love watching the leaves alter their colors and fall to the ground as the weather slowly moves into chillier temperatures. Autumn meets your desire for constant adjustment in the world around you, so it only makes sense that you just love everything about fall.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

You welcome the start of fall, Taurus, but no more than any other season. For you, the changes in the Earthly world are just an excuse to revamp your wardrobe and your home decorations. You love that each new season gives you an excuse to shop 'til you drop, but fall isn't any more special to you than any of the other times of the year. Your love of the material world makes you appreciate any reason for a shopping spree, but your reliable and practical nature understands that the excitement of fall will fade quickly.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

You're absolutely fascinated by fall, Gemini. Known for your two-sided nature, versatility and adaptability are built into your temperament, and the changing of the seasons is the perfect complement to your inconsistent personality. However, you're also extremely curious about the world around you, meaning fall is more than just a pleasant symbol of your shifting moods. You're absolutely fascinated by this season. You could spend all day watching the leaves change and looking into the reasons behind the constantly adjusting nature of this season. You often feel that there's not enough time to experience everything you want to, but the gorgeous transition of fall is the perfect way to temporarily satiate your endless curiosity.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

Oh, Cancer—you're quite the little homebody, so you love that the colder weather of fall gives you an excuse to snuggle up on your couch and avoid the outside world. You don't really care about the physical changes of the season, but you love that cozy blankets and movie nights at home are officially acceptable. While the changing weather can sometimes affect your mood negatively, you're usually happy and refreshed at the arrival of fall.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Leo, Leo, Leo—we know your autumn secret. You worship the Sun, Leo, so it's only natural that fall would make you a little sad. The cloudy skies and colder weather definitely affect your mood negatively, but you would never let anyone know that. You're self-confident and cheerful, meaning you're often unwilling to admit when you feel a little down in the dumps. Fall is far from your favorite time of year, as it makes you feel a little off-balance and melancholy, but you'll still keep your smiling expression in public and only give in to your sad emotions in private.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22) 

You're pretty indifferent when it comes to fall, Virgo. As the most methodical and practical sign in the zodiac, you know that the changing of the seasons doesn'really have any impact on your life. You're more concerned with your own work ethic and your internal values and goals, so you don't really put much stock into how the changing of the seasons affects your life. It's not that you like it or don't like it, you honestly just don't think about it very much.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

You love fall, Libra, but only for a very specific reason. As a sign obsessed with partnership, the arrival of fall is the official signal that cuffing season is underway, making it much easier for you to find your next romantic partner. You already have all your fall dates planned—trips to the pumpkin patch, Halloween couples costumes, etc.—all of which make fall one of your favorite seasons. You could care less about what's happening outside, you're just excited that autumn will probably cause one of the cuties you've been talking to give in and date you.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

You feel most alive during fall, Scorpio. Not only does your season of the zodiac arrive right in the middle of autumn, but you're also ruled by the planet Pluto. This planet is known for transformation and regeneration, which basically encompasses the essence of the fall season. Autumn is the time that you feel most collected and in control of yourself, Scorpio—easily making it your all-time favorite season.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

Oh, Sagittarius—you're quite the impatient and unconventional sign. You like fall, but you get bored of it very quickly. Watching the season transition from summer to autumn definitely speaks to your love of change and diversity, but it doesn't happen quickly enough for your adventurous mind. You're always on the hunt for a new experience, so after the first few weeks of fall you feel you've seen all you needed to and you're ready for the next big transformation.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

You absolutely hate fall, Capricorn. As an Earth sign, you're deeply connected to the material world, but you prefer to use the things around you in a practical way that speaks to your sense of responsibility. To you, fall is full of all kinds of frivolous things that don't add any real value to your life. Fall decorations, Halloween costumes, candy and shopping sprees all seem like a massive waste of time, and you hate watching everyone around you participating in them. You prefer to stick to your straightforward, disciplined approach to the world, meaning fall has nothing new to offer you.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

You really couldn't care less about fall, Aquarius. As a deeply intellectual and progressive person, you're always thinking of things way outside of yourself, meaning you hardly worry about how the changing of the seasons affects you personally. To be fair, it's not just fall—your independent, eccentric and academic mindset means you don't give much thought to any of the seasons, as they're just a blip on your radar in the grand scheme of your idealistic mindset.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 19)

Oh, poor Pisces—you're honestly not the biggest fan of fall. As one of the most empathetic signs in all the zodiac, a lot of your emotions have to do with what other people might be feeling. Since fall can be a sad time for some people, you naturally feel those negative emotions more deeply than any positive vibes fall might bring. Although you try to keep things happy and positive, on the inside you're struggling just as much with all those seasonal mood swings, meaning fall is not your favorite season.
