A Definitive Ranking of the 12 Zodiac Signs, From Least to Most Artistic

When it comes to artistic ability, some people have it and some people don't.

Even if you spend your whole life working on it, creativity starts with some kind of natural talent. So how do you know if you're an artistic person or if you should stay far away from the creative sphere? Thankfully, the stars can provide the answer.

Keep reading for a definitive ranking of the 12 zodiac signs, from least to most artistic.

12. Aries (March 21 – April 19)

You're always on the hunt for something new, Aries, but you much prefer physical activity to creative expression. Although you're enthusiastic and passionate, embracing an artistic nature isn't really in your wheelhouse. Your talents center around speed, competition and organization, and you're completely comfortable sticking with what you know you're good at.

11. Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22)

You have a gentle and peaceful nature, Libra, but your social disposition doesn't translate into artistic ability. While you have a fondness for the material world, you much prefer to consume the artistry of others rather than create your own. You love to experience music, art and beauty in all its forms, but you would sooner pursue justice and equality rather than waste your time on creative expression.


10. Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

Responsibility and discipline are your main points of focus, Capricorn. You have a serious and realistic nature that veers more towards tradition than creativity. You like to follow tried-and-true methods, which often prevents you from delving into the artistic world. You do have an appreciation for the material world and could probably create unique work if you chose to pursue artistic passions, but you prefer to pursue more practical plans than the life of a struggling artist.


9. Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22)

Creativity isn't one of your strong suits, Virgo. You much prefer an analytical approach to the world, based in practicality and realism. You take a methodical approach to everything in your life, often shutting down your tender heart in favor of organization and planning. You do have a well-developed sense of communication and a unique way with words that could be channeled into an artistic ability, but it's not your first choice when choosing a path for your life.

8. Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Your eccentric and highly original nature could easily push you into the creative world, Aquarius—but you lack the ability to infuse your works with the emotion that it takes to truly excel artistically. While you're not afraid of stepping out of the box and pursuing something new, you also run from emotional expression, preferring to stay in an intellectual zone that limits your creative capabilities. Though you have some artistic talent, you prefer intelligent conversation to creative expression.


7. Sagittarius (Nov. 22 -Dec. 21)

You have a natural artistic ability, Sagittarius, but you rarely choose to follow it. You prefer to channel your curiosity and open mind into traveling and seeing the world without taking the time to truly examine the things you're experiencing. Much like Libra, you love to soak in the artistry around you, rather than create your own. However, you're not to be tied down by traditional experiences and could easily bring your creative abilities to the forefront if you wanted to.


6. Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

You have a special love for the material world, Taurus, with a desire to always be surrounded by love and beauty—and if you can't find it in your immediate sphere, you're more than willing to make your own. Your ruling planet is Venus, which is one of the main explanations for your creative nature. While you have a natural artistic ability and a drive to pursue it, you're sometimes limited by your practical and stubborn nature.

5. Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

Unlike Aquarius who run from their feelings, you live to express your emotional side, Scorpio. You feel everything deeply, and you love to channel your tumultuous sentiments into artistic work. You're resourceful and passionate, fully capable of embracing your creative abilities. You're also committed to the things you set out to do and won't give up until everything is exactly how you imagined it.


4. Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

You excel in the artistic sphere, Gemini, mainly due to your never-ending curiosity. You're fascinated by the world around you, and your open state of mind allows you to easily transition into a creative zone. You're especially skilled with words, as you're always searching to express the wonderful things you've experienced. Your versatile and inquisitive nature easily cements you as one of the more artistic signs in the zodiac.


3. Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

You have a warmhearted and passionate nature, Leo, which makes you very in tune with your artistic side. Your self-confidence and penchant for drama cause you to turn to creative outlets to express your emotions. Your artistic ability is central to your constant search to become the best version of yourself, explaining your rank as one of the most artistic zodiac signs.

2. Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

You're highly imaginative, Cancer, which is one of the ultimate contributing forces to your well-rounded artistic ability. You love dreaming up new ideas, and you're just persistent enough to make sure your dreams are put into action. Combine your inventive state of mind with your deeply emotional nature and it's easy to see why you're one of the most artistic zodiac signs.


1. Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

You are without a doubt the most artistic sign in all the zodiac, Pisces. Your ruling planet is Neptune, so you have a unique connection to music, but your gentle and intuitive spirit gives you a special knack for creativity in all areas of your life. Your instinctual understanding of the world around you and your introspective attitude shine through your work, allowing you to create masterpieces that deeply resonate with the people around you.
