While you have probably heard that zodiac signs can reveal a lot about a person’s personality and characteristics, did you know that the month you were born can also tell many things about you?
Your birth month can offer insight into your overall demeanor, how other people see you, and your thoughts and feelings toward life in general.
These descriptions originate from the study of astrology, basing the character traits on the alignment and placement of the stars during your birth month.
People born in January have a very strong work ethic, and will not hesitate to voice their opinions. They have a headstrong, stubborn attitude, and don’t take well to people telling them what to do.
They make very good leaders because of their persistence and drive to succeed, but sometimes don’t listen to others very well. You have a natural ability to teach other people, and they listen to you with ease and willingness to learn.
If you were born in February, you probably have a strong creative streak, and enjoy working on new projects. You love getting into intellectual discussions, and don’t like to converse with others who seem shallow.
You have been called a free spirit once or twice in your life before, and don’t like to live within the confines of society’s rigid rules. You love travel, and hop on a plane or train every chance you get.
Adventure and exploring the world around you get you excited and make you feel alive, so you do best in the company of other free spirits and dreamers. You are a very loyal, honest friend and partner, as well.
People born in March are also highly creative and imaginative, but they tend to be more introspective and quiet. They live inside their own heads a lot, creating masterpieces within their minds. They turn to the arts for expressing themselves, and enjoy their quiet time alone.
You have a kind, gentle demeanor with other people, but tend to hide most aspects of yourself from others. You crave peaceful, serene environments, and stray away from noisy, crowded places most of the time.
Those born in April crave attention and love every second they can spend in the spotlight. They don’t take orders well, instead preferring to do things their way and lead others.
April babies seek new adventures, and constantly are on the prowl for an adrenaline rush. They act first and think later, living life day to day, seeing where it takes them. They are sometimes known to be loud and obnoxious, but they speak their minds and have no problem telling other people how they feel.
People born in the month of May tend to be very fickle, wanting one thing yesterday, and something totally different today. They express themselves well, and love talking to people from all walks of life.
They have an active social life, and don’t like to spend a lot of time alone. May babies also love a stimulating, intelligent conversation, but need almost an equal amount of fun and excitement. They get bored easily, and constantly look for new ways to entertain themselves.
If you were born in June, you are very sensitive and caring toward other people’s feelings. You can be shy and soft-spoken, but people really admire that about you.
You have a creative spirit, and think far into the future about what you can create and how you can bring your ideas into the world. Though you don’t always express how you feel, you have a whole world living inside you, and you just want to figure out how to bring it to life.
People born in July have many of the same traits as those born in June, except that they are a bit more spontaneous and extroverted. They live for adventures, and just want to have a good time.
Outwardly, they appear confident and cheerful, but inside, they harbor a lot of dark secrets, and hide their pain well from others. People born in July have lots of energy, and people love to hang out with them because of this.
August babies are natural born leaders, not afraid to stand on their own with their opinions. They can be bossy and opinionated, but underneath all that, they have big hearts. August babies can think too much, however, and get locked inside their rigid, methodical approach to life if they aren’t careful.
People born in August do well in careers that involve critical thinking and analysis, because they see life in a logical, step-by-step way. They don’t express their emotions well, however, so seeing the more “human” side of them can seem difficult at times.
People born in September have high expectations of others, so they get disappointed easily. They have a mean stubborn streak, and hold grudges if you get on their bad side.
They are perfectionists, holding themselves and others to high ideals. They also are sensual, creative, kind people, always wanting to help others when they can.
People born in October crave balance and stability in everything they do, and have a positive outlook on life. You don’t like confrontation, and avoid it whenever possible.
You also have an active social life, and love your friends to death. You’re charming and talkative, and though you love being around people, you’re fiercely independent as well.
People born in November are very secretive, and often hide their true feelings from others. They don’t like others telling them what to do, and tend to carve their own path in life.
They don’t have too many fears, and will jump into a situation headfirst, no matter the consequences. They don’t let anything in life stop them, and have a headstrong, passionate approach to life.
December babies are very adventurous, generous people. However, they can let their pride get in the way sometimes, and have a short fuse with people.
They always like to be on-the-go, and can’t stand to sit still too long. They are feisty, entertaining people, and their free-spirited attitude perfectly balances their more uptight side.
