If the first question you ask someone isn’t “what’s your zodiac sign?” you will most likely not hear from that person again. That may sound a little extreme but hear me out and let me explain. 

Knowing someone’s zodiac sign is the new norm. Its become a way for us to design our friend groups and romantic relationships. While each zodiac sign is different and no two signs are exactly alike, there is a huge commonality among traits and characteristics people carry based on their sign.

Zodiac signs are more than astrologically pleasing. They can tell a lot about a person including who you can or cannot get along with.

My household has gotten so used to talking about our signs and how accurate they are to each of us, we’ve managed to guess the signs of characters on multiple TV shows almost perfectly. 

As someone who lives with another Taurus, I can tell you we cover all the attributes of typical Tauruses. Now this doesn’t mean we are exactly alike, but rather we represent all the wide ranging characteristics of Tauruses. 

We share common attributes of always being hungry, stubborn, hardworking, dependable and needing to have things be done in a specific order. We differ when it comes to how we like to give attention to others and show how we love and care for one another.

Living by your sign has become so common that varied artists have started singing about them and have highlighted the significance of knowing the signs of the people you associate yourself with.

Not all signs have the ability to blend well together. It is a saying that opposites attract because it can create an equal balance within a relationship but, that is not always the case. 

Signs can also feel categorizing at times. However, they can teach us how to restructure and build stronger friendships and relationships for our future. 

Being able to define the traits and characteristics you have can save energy and time from being wasted. It gives you the opportunity to tell someone about yourself without having to jumble around in your head so much. 

Zodiac signs are like a part of our portfolios. I have the ability to give myself more of an understanding of why I like what I like. 

Take cooking for example. Tauruses love anything to do with food. I do not only love to eat food but I have a passion for cooking it and enjoy seeing how happy other people get when they take a bite of something delicious. 

I can also be one of the most stubborn people on the planet which is one of the biggest traits a Taurus can have. We not only like to get our way but are adamant on how our lives are structed. This makes us very prone to neglecting the things we cannot control. 

By learning about my own zodiac sign and expanding my knowledge in the others, I feel that I have been introduced to a new look on life. 

Whether you are an Aquarius, Capricorn, Sagittarius, Aries, Virgo, Libra, Taurus, Pisces, Scorpio, Gemini, Leo or Cancer, explore your sign and remember it’s a piece of who you are, not just another stupid trend.
