Signs of the Zodiac
"Many times in anime, you will hear a character give their sign and blood type. This is because many people believe that both inherently affect your personality type. Here is a brief list of the Zodiac signs with their profiles.
ARIES (The Ram) March 21 - April 20
First sign of the zodiac. It is a representation of birth and initial realization of one's self. People born under this sign display strong leadership skills and are extroverted and assertive. Aries tend to accomplish goals by sheer energy and force of will. They can be blunt, and bold and they focus on ego and self rather than balance between people. They are self-contained, have strong leadership skills, can seem competitive, arrogant, domineering or inconsiderate. They are also sometimes selfish, but they are not loners. They tend to respond to the world through action; doing before thinking and sometimes this trait can land them into trouble. In relationships Aries tend to be playful and romantic.
Aries are opposite of Libra.
TAURUS (The Bull) April 21 - May 20
