How to determine your horoscope

Contrary to popular belief, there are more ways to find out your star sign than your date of birth. Here are some ways to know your horoscope.

Use your birthday

The most popular method of determining your zodiac sign is by using your date of birth. There are twelve signs of the zodiac classified according to the time of the year. Although these ranges sometimes increase or decrease in different cultures, Western astrologers generally use fixed dates.

Study personality traits

Another way to determine your zodiac sign is to study your personality traits. Although it’s not set in stone, certain zodiac signs are more likely to inherit specific characteristics. For example, a Gemini personality is most often described as talkative and social, while a Taurus personality is more easy-going.

Rate your compatibility with others based on their zodiac sign

There are other ways to categorize your horoscope by zodiac element. These elements are fire, water, air and earth. Zodiac signs, according to their elements, include:

  • Fire signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
  • Water signs: Cancer, Pisces, Scorpio
  • Air signs: Gemini, Aquarius, Libra
  • Earth signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn

The most common and least common zodiac signs

Now that you know how to determine your horoscope, it’s time to take a closer look at the least common and most common zodiac signs.


Scorpio percentage: 9.6%

Appointment: October 23 – November 21

The famous and mysterious Scorpios are the most “misunderstood” and most common zodiac sign in the world. Confusing, elusive, and emotionally energetic, Scorpios must be some of the most complex and dynamic people around. Although generally popular, Scorpios can sometimes feel alienated by their own cynical opinions and the frequent clashes between their wants and needs.

Scorpios make excellent friends thanks to their tendency to be unwaveringly loyal and protective. However, dating them may require some patience – they take time to open up.


Virgo percentage: 9.4%

Appointment: August 23 – September 22

Considered the most intelligent zodiac sign, you can expect a Virgo to be successful at just about anything they do. These logical and practical perfectionists are always looking to improve their skills and surpass themselves at every opportunity.

Virgos will have a quick fix for everything, but can sometimes struggle to feel useful all the time. If you’re a Virgo, learn to slow down — your thousands of ideas per minute will still be there for you to revisit another time.


Gemini percentage: 9.3%

Appointment: May 21 – June 20

The third most common zodiac sign is the bubbly, talkative, and hilarious Gemini. Most people would describe a Gemini personality as entertaining, spontaneous, and playful. They are so charismatic they could talk to a brick wall while having fun.

Because Geminis are jacks of all trades, expect them to pull interesting facts out of nowhere. They are driven by curiosity but can sometimes use humor as leverage.

Percentage of Fish: 9.1%

Appointment: February 19 – March 20

Pisces are dreamy, fun-loving, and will always make you laugh. They are also considered one of the most sensitive zodiac signs. Show an ounce of emotion, and they’ll know exactly how you feel. Intuitive and empathetic, the typical Pisces can sometimes be pulled in two different directions and struggles to discern between fantasy and reality.

Because they tend to get overly romantic, Pisces can have a hard time setting boundaries. Additionally, they absorb the energy of those around them and can experience behavioral changes depending on who they are with.


Balance Percentage: 8.8%

Appointment: September 23 – October 22

If you’re looking for someone to have a good conversation with, introduce yourself to a Libra. For people looking to experience something new, Libras are a breath of fresh air and love balance.

Sometimes, in their quest for harmony and balance, Libras can avoid conflict. So if you’re in a relationship with someone, you may need to put in the extra effort to see all sides of the equation.


Cancer percentage: 8.5%

Appointment: June 21 – July 22

Meet someone with a Cancer sign, and you will get to know someone who is honest, sincere and emotional. The Cancer zodiac sign is extremely intuitive and will do anything they can to protect themselves emotionally. Because of this habit, they can be a bit comfort-seeking or absorbing other people’s problems.

If you ever harm Cancer, know that these naturally caring people will forgive you…but they probably won’t forget what happened.

Taurus percentage: 8.3%

Appointment: April 20 – May 20

Stubborn Taurus hates wasting time. They prefer to relax, snuggle up in bed or go to the spa. If you grew up with a Taurus, you might know that they yearn to become one with nature and just disappear into the woods.

In this sign, intelligence reigns supreme and Taurus will know how to use it to get out of delicate situations. Expect any Taurus you meet to be logical and grounded.


Capricorn percentage: 8.2%

Appointment: December 22 – January 19

Patient and persistent, Capricorns are responsible and driven by duty. Talk to a Capricorn and you might immediately assume they’re a lawyer, accountant, or something similar.

Capricorns aren’t attention-seeking, so don’t expect them to indulge in unnecessary things or boring obligations. However, they will constantly be in competition with themselves.


Aries percentage: 8.1%

Appointment: March 21 – April 19

Aries are very good at getting what they want. This bold, ambitious, and competitive sign will dive headfirst into the toughest situations and emerge unscathed.

A typical Aries personality is full of life and allergic to anything boring. They will sometimes look for a fight and forget they even started it in the first place.


Sagittarius Percentage: 7.3%

Appointment: November 22 – December 21

Considered one of the laziest zodiac signs, you’ll have a hard time meeting a work-loving Sagittarius. Instead, this less common zodiac sign is looking for adventure and will be the most entertaining person you’ll meet at a party.

However, they can get very emotional in the midst of their true star power – so be prepared.

Leo percentage: 7.1%

Appointment: July 23 – August 22

In eleventh position for the most common zodiac sign is Leo. Leos like to be the center of attention. Bruise Leo’s ego and they might not get over it for a while.

If you like big personalities, try dating a Leo.


Aquarius percentage: 6.3%

Appointment: January 20 – February 18

The least common zodiac sign on the spectrum is Aquarius, people who like to enjoy life but can be picky about their commitments. Innovative and progressive, Aquarius is extremely humanitarian and naturally caring.

Because they tend to prioritize personal freedom, Aquarius can feel a little alienated in a crowd.
