Face it. We've all got a little sea creature in us. Keep reading to find out which ocean animal best matches the characteristics associated with your astrological sign.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)
Energetic and bold, Aries people are not afraid to take risks. They believe they've got what it takes to challenge their enemies, and they usually do.
It's the same mindset as the great white shark. These beasts are independent from an early age and rule the ocean as they grow, taking down predators when they must.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)
Tauruses make great friends. They're reliable, well-grounded and love to be surrounded by beauty and nature. They can also be a bit pokey and don't react well to sudden change.
The seahorse has many similar tendencies. It's not prone to change, either. These animals mate for life. And while the rest of the sea might be buzzing around them, they swim very slowly around the areas they know well.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)
Geminis are known as twin personalities, always thinking and looking for their other half. They could be serious and sullen in one moment and gregarious and social in another.
That's similar to the bottlenose dolphin. Super intuitive by nature, their social groups are fluid throughout their lives. They may form close and intense bonds with a parent or friend, but later move on to live and work with another group of dolphins.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)
Cancers are one of the more sensitive and intuitive zodiac signs, staying loyal to those close to them and sometimes being incredibly suspicious of outsiders. They might prefer to stay close to home as opposed to going out often or seeking adventure.
Their sign might be the crab, but that behavior is similar to the loyal, sensitive walrus. They're lovable creatures that you always want to hug, and while they may appear to be happy-go-lucky on the outside, it's possible they're a little ruffled at the invasion on the inside.
Leo (July 23 to August 22)
Leos are often the beloved lives of the party who thrive when they're being admired. That enthusiasm and joie de vivre is alive and well in the playful, spirited sea lion.
Much like Leos, these animals love to charm and will do just about anything, as long as it results in claps from an adoring crowd.
Virgo (August 23 to September 22)
Virgos can be practical perfectionists who have a difficult time letting new people into their lives. Once they trust someone enough to come into their inner circle, though, they are as ride-or-die as you can get.
That's much like the moray eel. The eels have a reputation for being rude, but in reality they're just guarded and rarely attack unless someone or something disrupts their space.
They've grown to trust the roving coral grouper. In fact, the two have such a connection that they communicate through a series of head bobs and help each other hunt — the only known instance of cooperative hunting among fish.
Libra (September 23 to October 22)
Libras are one of the most gentle astrological signs, preferring harmony and friendly company rather than conflict. They might find it difficult to say no, but they do find it easy to come up and say hello.
The Mola mola fish also likes to say hello to divers when it sees them. With its intimidating look and size, many think the Mola can do serious harm. However, much like Libras, they are incredibly gentle and just want to make sure everyone is happy.
Scorpio (October 23 to November 21)
People born under Scorpio are fiery and intense. They're also fiercely loyal and often highly driven. The ferocious barracuda shares many of the same tendencies. It will compete against anyone to tear apart its prey, and will protect what's theirs at all costs.
Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21)
Sagittarius people are known for being adventurous, loving travel and being eager to change their surroundings. The same goes for the flamboyant cuttlefish, the energetic cephalopod that scurries along the seafloor and can amazingly change its color to adapt to its surroundings.
Capricorn (December 22 to January 19)
This is a zodiac sign that thrives under structure and organization. Capricorns are ambitious and ready to tackle big projects, especially those that will help their neighbors.
That's just like the wrasse, a good-looking fish that's known for tackling the extremely ambitious undertaking of cleaning the whole ocean. Always helpful to its fellow marine animals, this guy scuttles around the ocean (or fish tanks) and cleans parasites from other fish.
Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)
Aquarius people are unique. They're curious and affectionate, but also have no problem being independent. Often, they're imaginative and ahead of the curve. The blue-ringed octopus is also a unique sea animal.
Like an Aquarius, it doesn't mind being social. But it's also comfortable on its own and highly adaptable to its surroundings, as it can change to fit in wherever it goes.
Pisces (February 19 to March 20)
Pisces are the dreamiest of the zodiac signs. They are often selfless, with quite a romantic side, but may be thrown a little off their game when things don't go the way they thought they would.
The swan is much like the Pisces. True romantics, they mate for life and often live among ethereal, dreamy settings.
