Not everyone picks their favorite season based on their birthday alone.
In fact, for most of us, it‘s the energy of a different season that can truly stir our souls. Curious about your own most fruitful and productive time of the year? Simply scroll down to your zodiac sign below to find out.
Aries (March 21 – April 19): Fall
Aries may be born in the heart of spring, but their time to thrive is actually the crisp fall season. There‘s something about the cool autumn breeze and the change in the air completely reinvigorates this active sign and makes them feel like they can achieve anything—and that‘s saying a lot, given their bold sense of confidence. Plus, Aries can‘t stand when life stands still, embracing every dynamic shift that the season brings with it. In fall, Aries can do it all.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Spring
Taurus is one of the signs lucky enough to celebrate their birthdays during their perfect seasonal match. Taurus‘ prosperity grows in the spring as they‘re inspired by the beauty of warm weather, blooming flowers and new life. Watching the cycle start over again also encourages them to look inward and remember all the things that drive them to work hard and do their best every day.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Summer
Gemini season may fall just short of the summer, but this optimistic sign knows how to get a head start on the celebration regardless. They‘re driven by friendship and connectedness, and they use every lazy day of summer to the fullest by spending them with the people they care about. The sign knows better than to waste a single day, and they‘re not afraid to act first and make things happen.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Fall
Though Cancer birthdays signal the beginning of summer, those burn under the sign are much more likely to flourish once the heat of summertime fades and the chill of fall arrives. The sometimes capricious weather matches Cancer‘s own ever-changing emotions, while the coolness of the season can help temper the ones hitting them hardest. Autumn also means forward progress, which Cancer is always happy to see.
Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Summer
If any season truly captures the spirit of boisterous, sunny Leos, it‘s the summer. The sign loves parties, late nights and wonderfully warm weather, which are all hallmarks of summer vacation, and is all about sharing unforgettable memories with as many folks as possible. They also love being the center of attention, and being celebrated so it‘s no coincidence that this also happens to be their birth season.
Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22): Winter
Virgo season may indicate the end of summer, but this careful sign excels most during the short days of winter. Virgo tends to be quiet and studious, and they quite like the idea of staying cozy and warm indoors for most of the winter. That tranquil and often uneventful time is just what they need to take a stab at their most ambitious goals. It‘s when their perfectionist souls can be happiest.
Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22): Spring
Even though Libra ushers in autumn, the sign can really shine in the lively months of spring. There‘s something about everything in nature feeling fresh and new that gives Libra a real sense of peace and balance that they don‘t often feel during the rest of the year. They‘re at their happiest when the world feels as it should be, and the innate beauty of the world also inspires their strong sense of kindness.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Winter
As much as Scorpios love the dark spookiness of Halloween during their birth season, they‘re even more inclined to be in love with the winter season. The short days and long nights perfectly suit their passionate yet mysterious temperaments, as they‘re often happier obscured by shadow than by being completely in the limelight. And even though they might not be quick to admit it, the sign truly does love the festivity and celebration of the holiday season.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): Spring
Sagittarius is yet another autumn sign that‘s much better suited to succeed in the spring. The positive sign is all about fresh starts, and the vibrancy of the vernal season energizes their desire to go off on adventures, try new things and see the world. The warmth fills them with a driving enthusiasm, and when the world feels young, there‘s absolutely nothing that can get in their way.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): Winter
It‘s totally fitting that Capricorn season kicks off the winter, because it‘s the time this sign is at its most expansive. They‘re known for keeping their cool, perfectly matching the weather‘s cue, and knowing how to productively use the downtime of chilly winter months to get stuff done. After all, they‘re known as the hardest workers in the zodiac. Capricorns are also lovers of tradition and carrying on customs, so they relish every moment of the holidays.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): Fall
Even though Aquarius is borne from the dead of winter, this sign is likely to see its greatest successes during the transformative month of fall. Aquarius is adaptable and independent, and doesn‘t feel like they can reach their potential in a stagnant environment. In fact, when everything is changing around them, they‘re most likely to cultivate rich new ideas to share with the rest of the world.
Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): Summer
Pisces may be winter‘s children, but they‘re summer babies at heart. The creative and dreamy sign benefits most from open time, free of expectations and deadlines, in order to get their very best work done. The fewer boundaries Pisces has, the more room there is for them to grow and thrive, allowing their very biggest ideas to grow from a pipe dream into reality.
