Why We Love Aquarius: Quirky, laid-back, marches to the beat of their own drum and doesn’t sweat the small stuff.
Hidden Dark Side: For a sign that is so consciously aware of the needs of others, they can be extremely flaky and unreliable.
Avoid Falling Into Their Trap: Don’t get attached too soon. Just because they pay attention to you doesn’t mean you mean more to them than any other human being on the planet. It takes a lot to build an emotional bond with them.
Beat Them At Their Own Game: You need to form an intellectual connection with this sign to truly get on their wavelength as they are a bit emotionally detached. Surround yourself with people. They are uncomfortable in one-on-one situations.
The Ultimate Aquarius: Ellen DeGeneres, Rosa Parks. Their individual gestures of non-conformity were the spark that led to major advances in civil rights for the LGBT community and African Americans.

We Love Aries Because: Demanding, high maintenance, melodramatic—but that makes life oh-so-exciting, doesn’t it?
Hidden Dark Side: Charismatic, funny—the Aries is all smiles when you first meet them but watch out, like their spirit animal the ram, they can have an explosive temper when provoked.
Avoid Falling Into Their Trap: Learn to set boundaries at the beginning or they will expect you to be available 24/7.
Beat Them at Their Own Game: "Compliments are the key to an Aries heart, so inflate their ego every chance you get to gain the upper hand.
Ultimate Aries: Lady Gaga, Mariah, Aretha Franklin, and basically any diva known by one name only.
We Love Cancers Because: They wear their hearts on their sleeves. They are nurturing, self-sacrificing. They mother their friends and even their...
We Love Cancers Because: They wear their hearts on their sleeves. They are nurturing, self-sacrificing. They mother their friends and even their own mothers. But they mean well.
Their Hidden Dark Side: Cancer’s spirit animal—the sideways-walking crab—is a giveaway for this sign’s sometimes sneaky, seemingly caregiving manipulations, so be careful. While we like them very much, they can also also be suffocatingly needy and clingy.
Avoid Falling Into Their Trap: Cancer’s may make you feel guilt-ridden and shameful about how they make you feel guilt-ridden and shameful. Yes, you read that right. Share things with them (to avoid them hounding you) but keep your more embarrassing secrets your own. Cancers have a way of biting back when they are defensive making those less-than-shareable secrets weapons against you.
Beat Them At Their Own Game: Cancers need appreciation for all their kindness. Tell them how grateful you are and how no one could ever take care of you as well as they do and they will be happy. For a little while.
Ultimate Cancer: Princess Diana. Her warm, thoroughly-modern approach to motherhood ensured that her children led as normal a life as possible (for Royals) and they grew up to be kind, confident, compassionate young men.

We Love Capricorns Because: They are really, really good at business and making money. Watching a Capricorn in action is more educational than getting a MBA from Harvard—and cheaper.
Their Hidden Dark Side: Stingy, snobby, and social-climbing, Cappies don’t know the meaning of the phrase “spread the wealth” unless it is to lavish it on those who are already rich, in order to build their own status.
Avoid Falling into their Trap: Capricorns don’t understand the idea of “no strings.” Every act of kindness or favour you do for a Capricorn must have its price or reciprocal gesture in order for them to respect you.
Beat Them At Their Own Game: Name drop. Subtly flaunt symbols of your superior social position but nothing too gaudy, tacky or nouveau riche. If they feel they are higher than you on the social ladder, you’re done.
The Ultimate Capricorn: Howard Hughes, Conrad Hilton, Aristotle Onassis, and Al Capone, the first “businessman” mobster. Basically, any tycoon.

We Love Geminis Because: They are funny (we like funny), sociable, quirky, iconoclastic. Basically, the life of any party.
Hidden Dark Side: Like its fellow sun-sign Aries, Geminis can go from super-friendly to cutthroat-cold in a snap. Their wit often turns scathing, their words can hit harder than a fist.
Avoid Falling Into Their Trap: Gemini’s high-strung energy can easily spin out of control into full-blown anxiety. Don’t get sucked into living a life walking on eggshells to avoid their hysterics. Communicate your wants and needs from the relationship and be strong.
Beat Them At Their Own Game: Remain even more distant and hard-to-get than they are to keep them on their toes—and on the hunt.
Ultimate Geminis: Marilyn Monroe, Angelina Jolie, Kanye West. Big talents with equally big (and fragile) egos.

We Love Leos Because: They exude glamour. They constantly appear to be living life splendidly. And to top it all off they are usually your most confident, stylish and attractive friend. Oh wait—that’s actually why we hate them.
Hidden Dark Side: Imperiousness. If they don’t get enough admiration, they will let you know it by icily cutting you off from their royal entourage.
Avoid Falling Into Their Trap: They can make the most mundane situation positively intoxicating. Learn to separate fantasy from reality.
Beat Them At Their Own Game: Deep down, everyone is a bit intimidated by the Leo. If you stand up to them and let them know you can see through their charm you’ll be surprised to see the relief on their faces—finally, someone they can relax around and let their hair down with.
Ultimate Leos: J. Lo, Jennifer Lawrence, Daniel Radcliffe, Madonna. Those stars that always keep themselves up on a pedestal out of reach of the masses, but forever in their gaze.
We Love Libras Because: Natural-born peacemakers, they are on everyone’s good side and don’t hold a grudge. They know lots of people and are not...
We Love Libras Because: Natural-born peacemakers, they are on everyone’s good side and don’t hold a grudge. They know lots of people and are not stingy with social connections.
Hidden Dark Side: For such an easy-going sign, you would never believe they could be so maddeningly stubborn and co-dependent.
Avoid Falling Into Their Trap: Be careful how much time you invest in your relationship. They can occupy the passenger seat of your life and leave their own behind. Make sure they have a life and keep up with their friends and interests outside of yours.
Beat Them At Their Own Game: To get your own way, get angry. Libra will do anything to return to harmony.
The Ultimate Libra: Will Smith. Does this guy get angry about anything? Ever?
Why We Love Pisces: Visionary, evolved, ethereal, artistic, transcendent and compassionate to the less fortunate. Walking around with their...
Why We Love Pisces: Visionary, evolved, ethereal, artistic, transcendent and compassionate to the less fortunate. Walking around with their heads in the clouds gives them a different outlook on human existence.
Hidden Dark Side: For a sign that prides themselves on living outside the box, Pisces can really make you feel like dirt for not conforming to the conventions of middle-class proprietary.
Avoid Falling Into Their Trap: Pisces are extremely sensitive and shut down at direct confrontation. You need to keep your eyes open to their manipulations and realize that, when they stroke your ego, it is only so they can get ahead or for the sake of being polite.
How To Beat Them At Their Own Game: Divide and conquer. Don’t let Pisces get close to your friends or colleagues, or they will soon become best buds and you will be left on your own. They are social-life sponges. #friendstealers
The Ultimate Pisces: Albert Einstein, Steve Jobs and Justin Bieber, but also Robin Thicke. The pinnacle of human existence or a capital D-bag —we can’t tell. It’s a coin toss.

We Love Sagittarius Because: They are the human happy pill. High-octane, enthusiastic and positive—their energy can deflate any stressful situation. They are all-inspiring. There’s never be a dull moment around these social tornados.
Hidden Dark Side: While they seem like everyone’s easy-going friend, they actually are extremely determined individualists who fight for their independence. They’ll aim to win and won’t back down.
Avoid Falling Into Their Trap: Sagittarians have so much energy they will out-do even their most ambitious friends. Give them space to flourish and know when to get out of their way.
Beat Them At Their Own Game: Don’t ever enter into direct competition with a Sagittarius, or it will never end. As long as you stick to your own turf and interests, instead of piggybacking on theirs, they will be incredibly supportive of your success.
The Ultimate Sagittarius: Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, and Britney Spears. Headstrong divas who started out so compliant and sweet but, in reality, never play by anyone’s rules but their own.

We Love Scorpios Because: Why do we love hard-partying, skirt-chasing perennial bachelor Leonardo DiCaprio so much? Is that even a question? Bad boys (and girls) are mesmerizing.
Hidden Dark Side: What hidden dark side? Their hidden bright side is their unwavering loyalty. When the chips are down, Scorpio will have your back.
Avoid Falling Into Their Trap: They empathize with those in distress, because it makes them feel in control. They are saviours and will go out of their way to keep you in a state of perpetual victimhood. Avoid going to them with your problems even though they will always be eager to help.
Beat Them At Their Own Game: Once a Scorpio wants you in their life, their obsession makes it extremely difficult to dash. Act superficial, glib and unappreciative and they will skulk away. If you want to draw a Scorpio close, just act like the damsel (or dude) in distress.
The Ultimate Scorpio: Charles Manson. He had a charismatic magnetism that literally bewitched those around him, made them feel cared for and forced them to cross boundaries into dark realms. We’d bottle that if we could.

We Love Tauruses Because: They are down to earth and unpretentious with a laidback sense of humour and easy-going charm.
Hidden Dark Side: They exude sophistication so it may come as a shock that they can be sloppy homebodies who thrive on routine and won’t part with a dime.
Avoid Falling Into Their Trap: Tauruses are major control freaks who need to be in charge of your entire existence. Period. Paragraph. They might contest to you spending time with your friends and family instead of them. Try to make time for yourself anyway.
Beat Them at Their Own Game: If you want to get close to a Taurus, you have to become part of their routine. They thrive on a set schedule. Organize a poker game that meets each week at the same time, at the same place, and with the same people. Then, watch your favourite Taurus thrive in the sameness.
Ultimate Taurus: George Clooney. A smooth-talking charmer who makes it look so easy but actually works incredibly hard for every bit of success.
We Love Virgos Because: Their take-charge attitude. After all, someone needs to take care of all of life’s minutia and they actually love to do...
We Love Virgos Because: Their take-charge attitude. After all, someone needs to take care of all of life’s minutia and they actually love to do it. God is really in the details for this sign.
Hidden Dark Side: In three words: Nitpicking control freaks. Nothing escapes their microscopic eyes and they won’t hold back telling you all of your faults. Thanks Virgo, love you too.
Avoid Falling Into Their Trap: Be perfect, 100 per cent of the time. Or try. If that fails (which it will) don’t accept favours. It’s a trick. That’s when they start organizing your closet, or worse, your entire email inbox.
Beat Them At Their Own Game: While they appear like they have it all under control, they’re actually a bundle of anxiety and self-doubt inside. They are perfectionists who are hardest on themselves. Tell them what a great job they do. You’d be surprised how much this sign gets taken for granted.
Ultimate Virgo: Michael Jackson. One of the most naturally-gifted performers of all time who felt he could never be good enough and never stopped pushing himself to perfection.
