How creative are you? Do you have undiscovered creative potential? You might be a creative thinker, a problem solver. You could be artistic. Or good at crafting. Maybe your creativity lies in the realm of words. Perhaps you invent new recipes or are adept at adapting old ones. How about your fashion sense – are you creative when putting outfits together? Or maybe you think you aren’t creative at all.
We’re delving into the creative potential of each zodiac sign. Bear in mind that you should check your Moon and Ascendant signs to get a good all-round picture of your creative potential.
Aries March 21 – April 19
Aries is influenced by the element of fire, therefore, they are outgoing and original. They prefer not to follow the consensus, or copy others, but would rather create something completely new. Aries is a trend setter, a fashionista, and very avant-garde. They should think about making a name for themselves in design, fashion, interior décor and statement art.
Taurus April 20 – May 20
Taurus is an earth sign and Taureans are laser focused on the quality of their work. They can tend towards perfectionism, but that means whatever they create is of a high standard. They love to get their hands into the medium they are working with, so excel in sculpture, needle crafts and cake decorating. They are also good at garden design, preferring to work on a small scale.
Gemini May 21 – June 20
Air is Gemini’s realm, so their creativity lies in the realm of thought and communication. Gemini people make good actors and speakers. They are also very clever at getting their unique viewpoints down in writing. However, they do have a problem in sticking at it, so short stories, autobiographic pieces and flash fiction is better for them than trying to write a full length novel.
Cancer June 21 – July 22
Cancer’s creativity is more receptive than active. Being a water sign, their creativity may focus on crafts and making gifts for their family. Their real creativity lies within their ability to interact and focus on people. They can channel their creativity into the healing arts – therapy or energy work. Should they turn their attention to creating art, then they are able to use their emotional center as a deep well of inspiration.
Leo July 23 – August 22
Leo, another fire sign, is the performer of the zodiac. They are happy to display their talents in any situation which involves an audience. Leo responds to approval, using it to improvise and build on their performance. If creative types they tend towards careers in singing, music, acting, comedy and television. Leos love to share their accomplishments.
Virgo August 23 – September 22
Virgo is shy about showing off their artistic talents. Their earth sign modesty prevents them making their endeavors public. They enjoy the process, rather than the end result, so their art may end up scrunched in the trash, or hidden on their computer. They don’t like to be the focus of attention but in their soul is a performer trying to break free. Virgoans are the songwriters and the ghostwriters of the creative world.
Libra September 23 – October 22
Artistic airy Libra is attracted to traditional crafts, such as green woodwork, wood carving, pottery, or metalwork. They find deep satisfaction in using old tools and practicing techniques that have been handed down through the ages. Librans enjoy symmetry and balance, so they could be drawn toward architecture and design. If you are organizing a group art project, Libra will be there.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
Scorpio, a water sign, is a little like Virgo when it comes to publicity. They prefer to make their creations in private. Unlike Virgo, they are able to go dark in order to express themselves. If artists, their work reflects their deepest emotions. If they are writers, expect them to pour out their feelings. They are attracted to genres that reflect sexual expression, horror, terror, intrigue, betrayal and general carnage.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
Sagittarian’s fire energy is scattered, therefore they will often give up on a long, involved project even though their enthusiasm for it was boundless at the beginning. Their forte is in group settings, so they might prefer teaching art instead of making it. They love color and vibrancy, so expect them to show their creative side in their homes.
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
Earthy Capricorn must have recognition of their talents in order to produce their best. Not because they want to show off but because they need validation. This sign is not renowned for their imagination but, don’t be fooled, they will often surprise later in life. They have the ability to focus for long periods so are likely to be involved in detailed projects, such as writing novels and sewing complex quilts.
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
Aquarians can’t work alone. Their airy creative potential is only met by being part of a group or co-operative. They need shared input to inspire their own creativity. Aquarians are great set designers for theaters, studios and workplaces. They may be attracted to writing or art but find it hard to take criticism, so may give up.
Pisces February 19 – March 20
Pisces is another receptive water sign. They absorb influences all around them and find inspiration in unusual places. They are empathetic and generous, so a creative career in photography might be perfect for them. Pisceans love to document history and important events, so they might also be good at non-fiction writing. Their free flowing imagination gives them many creative ideas – it depends whether they have the motivation to bring them into reality.
