Astrology and Hobbies: Find a New Pastime Based on Your Sign

Kelli Fox

We have inside of us natural talents, ambitions and characteristics and we tend to gravitate towards hobbies or activities directed by our astrological sign. Find out more about what's a good fit for your sign.

Aries (March 20th - April 19th)

So let’s take a closer look at Aries, a Cardinal Fire Sign ruled by Mars. Mars is the lord of war, the planet of passion. Aries the ram isn’t likely to be satisfied by collecting stamps or doing needle point, they want a challenge. Aries is hot-blooded with a strong drive; they get angry quickly and forget it just as fast.

They have too much ahead of them today to worry about yesterday. Famous Aries include, Jane Goodall and Eddie Murphy. A zoologist and a comedian both driven to reach the summit of success, not because they were Aries, but because they had talent in their chosen professions, being an Aries just helped.

Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)

Stubborn as a bull aptly describes Taurus, as one of the most powerful signs in the Zodiac, it is fortunate their nature tends to be calm and stable. As a Fixed Earth Sign, ruled by Venus they’re hard workers not easily riled or distracted. With a loving nature, peace and the out-of-doors, a Taurus might be attracted to hiking or canoeing, while their creative side might inspire them to prepare gourmet meals. Their patience enhances their abilities in areas others might find frustrating. Queen Elizabeth II is a Taurus, as is Carol Burnett and Nora Ephron, hard-working and dependable, means Taurus has only the limits they place on themselves.

Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)

The twins of Gemini are all about a two-fold character, both complex and contradictory. Gemini being a Mutable Air Sign has the energy of two and are quick learners. Their intelligence combined with need for excitement, makes it easy for them to become bored with just one activity. They have an intellectual nature tending to internalize their emotions. But with so many interests, a Gemini might want to go to a museum in the morning and the theater at night. Their life of the party impressibility makes them subject to inverting plans at a moment’s notice. So what are the best hobbies for a Gemini? All of them…at the same time if possible! Johnny Depp is a good example of Gemini, film actor, musician, famous for his acerbic roles. He’s all over the map, a Disney pirate today or Hunter S. Thompson clone tomorrow.

Cancer (June 21st - July 21st)

Cancer is a Cardinal Water sign ruled by the Moon, when the going gets rough Cancer will retreat. Though they can seem introverted, this sign is considered keeper of the Zodiac. Prone to mood swings and a sensitive nature, they shy away from disagreement and take a strong dislike to those who criticize them. A Cancer would lean towards solitary projects, jogging, reading or maybe working in a wood shop. Famous Cancers include Meryl Streep, Angelica Huston and Henry David Thoreau. Who else but a Cancer would go out into the woods, live by themselves and write a book about their feelings?

Leo (July 22nd - August 21st)

Made for team sports Leo can’t wait to hit the field, anything with a physical activity combined with a chance to be the center of attention. This Fixed Fire sign ruled by the Sun wants drama, excitement and a stage to do it from. Leo’s lead from the front, a bike trip would be fun, but motorcycle trip might be better. Leo’s tend to live large, like all Fire signs, they’re passionate about their activities, they don’t just run the 10K race, they run marathons. They make great coaches and mentors on and off the field; their larger-than-life personalities make them natural leaders such as Leo’s, Bill Clinton, Madonna and author J.K. Rowling.

Virgo (August 22nd - September 21st)

Virgo’s preciseness would demand an activity requiring a great deal of intelligence, combined with an analytical nature. It means we should all be very careful when playing poker with a Virgo. A Mutable Air sign, Virgo might seem reserved, but it’s a poker face. Their careful observations of the world lead them to sports and hobbies with speeds and times, anything with numbers, strategies, chess or stock car racing, because for them, half the fun is inside their head. Famous Las Vegas odds maker Jimmy the Greek was a Virgo…surprise, surprise. As are Shania Twain, Salma Hayek and women’s rights activist Margaret Sanger.

Libra (September 22nd - October 22nd)

A diplomat such as Libra might prefer to umpire the game than to play themselves, they want what’s fair for everyone. A Cardinal Air sign ruled by Venus, they seek harmony. As a consensus builder, they make good team leaders but a casual nature makes them shy away from demanding activities. A bike ride or motorcycle ride in the country, they prefer something relaxing. Painting, hiking or backpacking, they enjoy having fun, provided it’s not too much work. Beatle John Lennon was a Libra as are Susan Sarandon and Catherine Zeta-Jones.

Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)

I suppose we could call Scorpio natural-born competitors. A Fixed Water Sign ruled by both Mars and Pluto their passions border on obsessive. There is no activity they won’t push to its zenith and with their attraction to spirituality, would push them to see the sunset from a mountaintop. Competitive sports for Scorpio are just that …competitive. They remember all injuries, the who, the whys and the wherefores. It is always better to play with a Scorpio than to play against a Scorpio; they play hard to win and won’t forget if they lose. Intense and filled with competition Condoleezza Rice, Jamie Lee Curtis and Neil Young are all Scorpios.

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 20th)

Sagittarius with its boundless energy is ready for almost any activity, they like them all. As a Mutable Air sign ruled by Jupiter, a Sagittarius has a riverboat gamblers luck which they see as a skill. Skydiving or scuba diving, it’s hard to find a challenge they won’t accept, except perhaps, doing it all over again next week. Travel beckons to them, as do solo sports, which they can play when they feel like it. Golf, tennis or paintball so be very aware when a Sagittarius asks, “Hey, you want to try something new?” Brad Pitt, Tyra Banks, Taylor Swift and Bruce Lee were all Sagittarians so be aware.

Capricorn (December 21st - January 18th)

Capricorn’s are natural-born tunnel builders. Capricorn’s are very independent, always looking for a better way. They’re disciplined and self-directed, Capricorn’s play to win through hard work and planning. They like games involving control, like cards or shooting pool. Their powers of observation should make them good gamblers, but their reticent nature to bet it all, sometimes costs them. Which is why a Capricorn doesn’t bluff, if they push their chips into the center of the table, they’ve got the cards to back it up. Orlando Bloom, Jim Carrey and Dolly Parton are all Capricorns.

Aquarius (January 19th - February 17th)

Aquarius the water bearer loves to share and to help out, but isn’t a water sign at all, but an air sign. They’re a Fixed Air Sign ruled by both Uranus and Saturn, making them hard to understand, seeking both stability and freedom, talkative and quiet. Uranus the planet of rebellion makes them rebels, unlikely to go in for activities with strict rules of formality. Their independence leads them away from group sports. Camping in the mountains or any other activities which can be done on the Aquarius’s own schedule. Famous Aquarians include, John Belushi, Alice Walker and Benicio Del Toro.

Pisces (February 18th - March 19th)

The long and winding road that leads to Pisces door is an easy path and a two-lane highway. Pisces is a Mutable Water sign which seeks only to go with the flow. They want to fit into any team situation, a good partner for bridge, or on the bowling team. Their quick intelligence makes them adaptable, but with their high emotions ruled by Neptune they’ll fight for the lost cause. Pisces is always ready for any excitement as long as they aren’t required to lead the parade. Mysterious Pisces might enjoy swimming, golf or boating or not, depending on when you ask them. Drew Barrymore a Pisces, along with Kurt Cobain and Carrie Underwood.

    Leo too is one of the strongest and most powerful signs that can make even Taurus its prey like a lion would a bull.

    So I encourage the astrologers to remember that as well. Leo is symbolized by the king of beasts who has to constantly FIGHT for his “crown” and to protect his pride. And is ruled by the almighty Sun, the hands-down most powerful force in the solar system, far more than either Mars or Pluto would ever be.

    So describe Leo as the mighty and one of the most powerful signs that it is. It even rules the Strength Tarot Card.

    We Leos prefer competitive and strength-based workouts like boxing, weightlifting, and MMA; all fields that have many Leos! Again…describe Leos as LIONS: powerful, courageous, and fierce.
