Has anyone ever guessed your astrological sign? It’s an amazing feat to perform and it requires research and practice. While not everyone believes this is possible or that the Zodiac has any meaning, here are some tips from those who believe it can be done. Always remember though that this is just based on sun signs, if we were talking about Ascending/Rising signs it would be different since the ascending sign of someone represents how they appear to someone before we get to know them. We are also not talking about Moon signs which are the persons inner personality, emotions and reactions to certain things in their life, so it could complicate pin pointing down just their Sun sign, since that only represents their characteristics.
STEP 1: Look for people with strong personalities.
Are they confident in their habits? Do they display distinct qualities that most people do not possess? Do you know the person rather well? If so, this person may be a good candidate for analysis. On the other hand, does the person tend to act like everyone else? Is the person shy? Is the person quiet?

STEP 2: Examine their appearance
If none of the obvious signs are there, look at the person carefully. What strikes you most about how they look?
- Aries: High set and narrow facial bones, broad foreheads, rosy cheeks, strong, well-proportioned body, above or below average height, and dark or sandy colored hair, strong eyebrows as well as clear and penetrating eyes which are often close-set.

- Body – People born in the winter usually have a strong, attractive bodies: Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces
STEP 3: Learn about astrological masculinity/femininity
It has little to do with being macho or girly. In fact, men with astrological femininity often compensate by acting macho (working out, claiming to be promiscuous or tough) and women with astrological masculinity often compensate by acting “girly” (wearing “girly” clothes and makeup, claiming to be emotional).
- Astrologically masculine qualities: Independent, dates a lot, tends to be rude and selfish, travels a lot, energetic, active, headstrong, talkative, confident, open-minded, sexual, flirtatious, prefers to pursue a mate.
- Astrologically feminine qualities: Prefers long-term relationships, prefers to stay at home, needs more sleep, methodical, considerate, reliable, kind, stubborn, polite, shy, prudish, prefers to be pursued.
- Here is the approximate ranking of signs from most masculine to most feminine: Aries, Sagittarius, Leo, Aquarius, Gemini, Libra, Capricorn, Virgo, Taurus, Scorpio, Pisces, Cancer.
STEP 4: Become familiar with the elements
- Fire (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius): Physical and active, tends to be rude and selfish, headstrong, confident, talented, charismatic, in good shape, into sports. In a word, the “doers.”
- Earth (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn): Physical and passive, perfectionistic, hard-working, tends to be introverted, confident, reliable, consistent, interested in many things. In a word, the “thinkers.”
- Air (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius): Mental and active, intelligent, interested in knowledge, energetic, charming, good with words, tends to be too changeable, articulate, optimistic. In a word, the “talkers.”
- Water (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces): Mental, passive, and attractive, emotionally sensitive, fantasize, creative powerful thoughts and actions, passionate, sexual. In a word, the “feelers.”
STEP 5: Observe their behavior, especially in conflicts or while working in groups
We all learn to hide our inner feelings to some degree while in public. People usually display their astrological traits in relationships and tense interactions. Refer to the element for the nature of the reaction that they will use (for example, Aries’ first reaction when faced with conflict is to yell or threaten, Gemini will talk his/her way out of it, Cancer usually responds with an emotional outburst, Taurus responds to conflict with silence and a posture of strength, etc.):
- Cardinal (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn): Usually responds to conflict with a bold, decisive, instinctive action in an attempt to trump the assault. Easily motivated to start tasks.
- Fixed (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius): Tends to hold in their reaction and respond that the attempt to hurt them was futile, with passive aggressive behavior or with silence. Concentrates on finishing things well.
- Mutable (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces): Tends to be artful with conflicts, and is known to try to avoid arguments. Good at motivating people.
STEP 6: Pay attention to the age of the person’s sign, Aries being the youngest and Pisces being the oldest, also known as the oldest souls
The younger signs tend to display quick tempers and be more selfish and eager to learn while the older signs are wiser, more compassionate and more set in their ways.
STEP 7: Ask the person’s birthday and birth time
Use Google to find a birth chart calculator.
STEP 8: Don’t use pick up lines like
“Hey, baby. What’s your sign?” For one thing, pick up lines don’t necessarily work, and for another, it takes all the fun out of guessing, doesn’t it?
STEP 9: Predict a person’s two basic signs
1) monthly sign such as Aries, Taurus, Gemini etc, and 2) yearly sign such as boar, rat, ox etc. Base your prediction from your study of astrology. The average guesser should have a 1/12 guess rate, and your results will be less than 1/12. Any study of astrology will, however small, improve on the 1/12 rate. Keep studying astrology from experts and from your own observations and your “guessing” will be 1/11 – 1/10.
