What You Should Celebrate About Yourself, Based on Your Zodiac Sign
Self-care starts with loving yourself and appreciating the traits that make you unique.
It's not always easy, but when you feel like your spirit needs an extra boost, you shouldn't be afraid to celebrate yourself. If you want to find out which of your attributes is worth cheering about, simply scroll to your zodiac sign in the list below.
Aries (March 21 – April 19): The Fire in Your Soul
At the best of times, Aries is a burning ball of passion, singlemindedly applying every ounce of themself toward a goal. While it's not possible for you to maintain that kind of fire all the time, there's always at least an ember inside of you that wants to go after something that's important. Your impulsive nature can mean that one minute, you think you'll spend the rest of your life dedicated to one cause, but that the next you've moved on to something new entirely. That's great as long as you keep working on yourself, and with the right team surrounding you, that passion can get you far.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Your Common Sense
When someone needs an even-headed and practical opinion, they should go to a Taurus first. You're perpetually grounded, with clear eyes and an ability to see through deception and falsehoods and get straight to the truth. People know they can depend on you for good advice that comes from a place of sound judgment, and that they can trust you to stick to your word. Though you can be a little bit stubborn sometimes, it's because you're so rarely wrong in the first place. Why should you change your opinion when your perception is stronger than anyone else's?

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Your Wit
Gemini can navigate a social situation like no other zodiac sign, and doing so takes a healthy dose of insight as well as wit. You have a natural way with words, as well as an intuitive sense about people, giving you the ability to befriend and charm anyone with ease. You have a keen sense of humor and you know how to diffuse a tense situation with a joke to make everyone more comfortable. It's this wit that enables you to be friends with just about anyone you meet.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Your Empathy
Cancer may be best known for their own emotional nature, but the sign is also gifted at reading and understanding the feelings of others. Because you're completely in tune with your emotions, you can quickly recognize them in others. When someone you know is sad, angry or otherwise upset, you can sense it before anyone else, and you're often the first to offer support. Your sensitivity means you're often dealing with matters of the heart, and you know just how to help others heal their own.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Your Influence
Leo's larger-than-life confidence and cheerful nature wouldn't mean a thing to them without the presence of other people. You adore playing the role of host and standing tall in the spotlight because you love to be loved, and lucky for you, you tend to be a powerful influence on others. You're a leader, and when people down know how to act, they look to you for guidance. You're a trendsetter without even knowing it, and you're the life of every party you attend. Celebrate your influence, because everyone else already is.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22): Your Hunger for Knowledge
Virgo is known for its wisdom, but knowledge doesn't just appear out of thin air. You know everything you know because you wanted to know it, and then you worked hard to process it until it was safely stowed away in your brain. Learning can't always come easily to you, but the fact that you stick with it anyway speaks volumes of your characters. Feeling like you know everything is fine, but the real power lies in understanding that you're not even close to knowing everything, and continually taking steps to close that gap.

Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22): Your Kindness
There's a reason Libra is associated with harmony and peace. You're a kind soul with a selfless nature, and you put others' wants and needs before your own. You try to be a true friend, which often means being friendly and going out on a limb for people, even when that's not easy for you. You have a hard time saying no to people, but despite the fact that people occasionally take advantage, that humanity is your true strength. The world needs more random acts of kindness, so don't change a thing.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Your Willpower
Scorpio is known for playing by their own rules and making their own way in the world. You're not easily swayed by the influence of others, and you uphold your own strong moral code, even when you're tempted with something you want. Though others may not recognize it, you're almost incorruptible, and you have a powerful will that doesn't bend for anyone. You have few friends, but they're as close to you as family. That's because someone has to be worthy to get to know the real you.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Your Adventurous Nature
Sagittarius can have a hard time standing still, and they often daydream about traveling the world and discovering its sights and cultures. You've always been a risk-taker and an adventurer who's willing to try new things, whether that means skydiving, sampling an exotic new food or simply visiting a new spot in town. There's so much to do in this life that you're up for experiencing anything at least once. Without people like you, the world would stand still and no one would ever learn anything new. Keep on exploring, because you never know what you might find out there.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Your Ambition
Most people know that Capricorn works harder than any other zodiac sign, but that diligence wouldn't mean much if it weren't backed up by ambition. You're an overachiever, but it's not to impress anyone or prove yourself. You simply strive for more because you know there's no limit to what you can do if you apply yourself. That's why your hard work likely extends beyond the academic. You accomplish just as much with your extracurriculars as you do in school, and you do it all with a real pride for your work.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Your Originality
Aquarius may be best known for the sign's altruism and open-mindedness, but perhaps the most important thing to know about Aquarius is that they're fiercely independent. You're completely original, often rejecting trends because they cramp your own original style. You're not going to follow along for the sake of popularity. You want to see all sides of a debate before you make up your mind about it, and you'll make that decision based on your own perspective. You know how to make your own fun, and you're unapologetically authentic to yourself.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Your Creativity
Pisces is a sign of ideas and off-the-wall creativity. You often find yourself daydreaming and rehearsing conversations that will never happen, imagining impossible scenarios and running over the details of a concept you simply haven't had time to put to the page yet. Your mind is always working overtime and you're never at a loss for creative approaches, even if you don't usually do anything with the ideas. Maybe you don't feel that your creativity has actually enabled you to create much, but you do have good ideas, and they're going to take you places.
