You learned all about signs in driver’s education: stop signs, yield signs, speed limit signs, and so on. However, you probably never learned about astrological signs! Can your zodiac sign influence your driving habits? According to some, yes! The personality traits associated with your sign could affect how you act behind the wheel, as well as your chances of facing a ticket or accident. Find out what your zodiac sign says about your driving personality and see what the stars might have in store for your next drive!
Aries (March 20-April 19) – The Aries is bold, confident, and assertive. Their symbol is the ram, and that pretty much sums up their driving style! The driving style of the Aries might be on the aggressive side. Because they’re unafraid to take charge on the road, they can run the risk of getting tickets – tickets for speeding or pulling a Gone in 60 Seconds-style driving maneuver to get somewhere they need to be.
Taurus (April 19-May 20) – The Taurus is patient, practical, and often predictable. They can handle a traffic jam with ease because they’re never in a rush. While they’re pretty immune to road rage, you wouldn’t want a Taurus driving if you’re running late. They’re more likely to go five miles under the speed limit and enjoy the scenery.
Gemini (May 20-June 20) – The Gemini is talkative, witty, and inquisitive. If you’re a passenger in a Gemini’s car on a road trip, don’t expect to take a nap. While they can be great company, a Gemini tends to get distracted. They’re most likely to get a ticket for talking on their cell phone or accidently running a red light, lost in their imagination.
Cancer (June 20-July 22) – The Cancer is emotional, loving, and cautious. A Cancer is fiercely protective and will drive carefully to make sure their passengers and other drivers are safe. However, they’re also prone to moodiness. If you cut a Cancer off or endanger them on the road, you might see their anger flare.
Leo (July 22-August 22) – The Leo is generous, optimistic, and brave. They’re just as likely to barrel down the fast lane as they are to kindly wave you through an intersection ahead of them. They aren’t afraid to be the center of attention, but their flashy driving could get them in trouble. Leos can also lean towards the bossy side, so they might be a backseat driver in your car!
Virgo (August 22-September 22) – The Virgo is shy, smart, and a bit of a perfectionist. A Virgo’s car will be neat and tidy, and you certainly won’t find them snacking in there. The Virgo can parallel park like a pro and rarely gets lost on the road. However, because Virgos value logic over instinct, they may struggle to drive intuitively in sticky situations.
Libra (September 22-October 23) – The Libra is courteous, easygoing, and kind. You won’t witness a Libra cutting people off or driving aggressively, because they try to avoid conflict whenever possible. However, Libras also tend to be easily influenced – if other drivers are speeding, they might put the pedal to the metal as well.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) – The Scorpio is determined, passionate, and instinctive. Because they embrace their intuition, they can “read” the drivers around them and drive defensively. They’re determined drivers to a fault. The Scorpio might insist on driving to their desired destination, even if there is insane traffic or a blizzard on the forecast!
Sagittarius (November 21-December 21) – The Sagittarius is hopeful, free-spirited, and intelligent. While they’re usually game to road trip to new and exciting spots, their free spirits could end up making them act carelessly. The Sagittarius can overlook or underestimate risks, and their optimism can turn into naiveté on the road.
Capricorn (December 21-January 19) – The Capricorn is practical, careful, and ambitious. The Capricorn is not very likely to get a speeding ticket or cause an accident because they value caution and discipline in all aspects of life. Much like the Taurus, they aren’t likely to speed if they’re running late… however, you won’t often find the Capricorn running late in the first place!
Aquarius (January 19-February 18) – The Aquarius is kind, loyal, and inventive. They place high value on being a friendly and helpful person, so you won’t find them screaming at people in traffic. The Aquarius is also a fan of trying new things and taking the road less traveled. They’re always looking for a new and original route!
Pisces (February 18-March 20) – The Pisces is loving, sensitive, and selfless. They’re ruled by their emotions, and they’d typically rather explore their soul than the open road. The Pisces can happily daydream their way through a 10-hour road trip, but they’re also the ones who might retreat home if the drive seems daunting.
