How You Express Your Creativity, Based on Your Zodiac Sign

Creativity isn't a trait reserved to only artists and writers. We all have it in us. It just unfolds in different ways.

While some people are best at expressing themselves through writing, others are better at speaking, or even communicating in how they look or how they organize their lives. If you're not sure what your own creativity looks like, scroll down to your zodiac sign below to find out.

Aries (March 21 – April 19): Visual Expression

Aries is the sign of movers and doers. If you're going to express yourself, chances are, it'll be in a visual medium that requires you to move to properly convey your ideas. Maybe that means you're a dancer, or maybe it means you draw or paint, but regardless, the result will be something that can be observed and enjoyed no matter who someone is or what language they speak. You love to make an impact with your creativity.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Style

While everyone expresses themself through what they wear, Taurus, in particular, sees fashion as one of the most important extensions of their creativity. To you, style doesn't just mean dressing well to show your status. It's also a way to subtly hint at your inner character. You know the finer details will be noticed by the people who matter, and few things bring you great joy more than stunning folks with your incredible outfits.


Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Telling Stories

Gemini is very focused on bringing people together, and few things do that better than a great story. You're a natural at telling tales, and you have the ability to transform even the most mundane of experiences into a gripping account that will keep everyone on the edges of their seats. You have the power to help people overcome their differences through shared experiences, and that skill is greatly important to you.


Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Personal Writing

Anything creative that Cancer undertakes comes straight from the heart. Whatever you're doing, it's always deeply personal and driven by your feelings. It's not always easy for you to put your intense emotions into words, and you may never find exactly the right translation to the page, but those sentiments will always fuel you. Don't be afraid to write down what you're going through, even if you never intend for anyone to read it.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Social Media

Leo believes that their best self is their true self, and defining that role and then living up to it is a creative act in itself. That's why much of your imagination gets funneled into producing the version of yourself that gets seen by the world on your social media pages. Every image you upload is carefully selected to perfectly represent you, and every word that goes along with it is a reflection of who you aim to be.


Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22): Surroundings

Though most people might not see Virgo's neat and tidy workspace as a place for creativity, it's precisely that. Wherever it is that you get things done, you like to keep the surrounding area streamlined with all of your supplies just so to create an aesthetic that promotes focus as well as ingenuity. Your perfectionism shines through in everything you touch. After all, the more beautiful your space, the more clearly you can think, and the more you can achieve.


Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22): Crafting

Libra is a very social and selfless sign, so their creativity is often focused on others, rather than themselves. The reason you find crafting so appealing—whether you're crocheting, knitting or working in another physical medium—is because you love having something tangible at the end of the process. You're a giving person who loves to share, and a lot of your hard work is channeled into gifts for your friends.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Music

Scorpio's focused and magnetic personalities make them natural musicians. You tend to hone in on one type of music that speaks right to your soul, and you have the drive to learn about its component pieces and start creating it yourself. You may be more interested in the lyrical side of the process, or be inspired to sing or learn an instrument. If and when the time comes, you'll have just what it takes to reveal your skill and make a name for yourself.


Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Photography

Sagittarius is an adventurer, and despite their independent streak, they'd rather share every journey than keep all of the memories to themself. You're all about living in the moment, and capturing them lets them last even longer. You like to travel to the places no one else visits, and encapsulate the images that no one else gets to see. You explore not just for the photo opp, but to encounter new things, and you want everyone to be in on the fun.


Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Teaching

Capricorn is a sign built around knowledge, and Capricorns tend not to keep what they know to themselves. That's why, whenever you find your own creative outlet, you don't just practice in it, but work to pass on your skills to others. Your vision is expansive. It's no good to you to hog that all to yourself, and if you can share your knowledge, you can make the world an even more creative place.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Spirituality

Independent, open-minded Aquarius expresses themselves through their belief. Chances are, you're a very spiritual person, and you're constantly seeking to learn more about yourself through metaphysical means. You want to discover who you truly are as an individual, and the more receptive you are to new ideas, the more you'll be able to create.


Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): In Bits and Pieces

Pisces is the most creative of the zodiac signs, but they don't always have the ambition to see things through. You tend to start projects in every area that strikes your fancy, leaving you with dozens of unfinished ideas. That may occasionally be frustrating, but there's nothing wrong with it. It's important that you focus on the process, rather than the end result. When the right idea comes along, you'll know to see it through.
