The twelve signs of the zodiac can be broken up into different personality types and some signs do share similar qualities to a varying degree. Signs can be grouped in a number of ways for instance there are positive and negative signs, opposing signs, and each sign belongs to one of the four elements, Fire, Earth, Air or Water.
Each element implies something very different with regard to human personality for instance the Water signs (Scorpio, Cancer and Pisces) are all deeply emotional and sensitive although some will show it more than others. With regard to romantic passion, these Water signs would be passionate in a sensitive and sensual way. While the Fire signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are not only passionate about their interests but will be adventurous lovers. Arians and Leos especially will have an above-average need for a fulfilling sex life.
When it comes to passion when relating to a person’s aims and ambitions the Scorpio who puts their all into whatever they take on, can show an almost obsessed passion: an absolutely colossal need to immerse themselves in a task in order to perform to perfection.
Passion is a strong emotional state; an energy within that can take hold of emotions, mind and body to create, to motivate and to help reflect ambition and emotions in a sometimes positive and sometimes negative way. Each sign therefore can show passion in different ways with no sign being more passionate than another in this respect. The difference is the reason for their passion; what is it that triggers each zodiac sign’s enthusiasm and fervour?
Arians are passionate about their current interests, their high energy levels needing a positive outlet through their enthusiastic pursuit of new aims.
Taurus appreciates sensual pleasures and although they are passionate lovers, problems can occur when passion leads to possessiveness.
Geminis are passionate about the need for intellectual stimulation and they will go out of their way to find this through study, research, finding ways to feed their curiosity and through their social interests.
Cancerians are wonderfully imaginative and highly sensual, a combination that will bring them many passionate encounters of the loving kind.
Leos are passionate about their relationships and about any idea that takes their fancy. Leos have a flair for drama and are passionate and enthusiastic lovers. Warm and faithful they can also become domineering and demanding where their sexual needs are concerned.
Virgos are passionate about their work and this provides a positive outlet for their high levels of nervous energy.
Librans are passionate about romance but not in a demanding or aggressive way. It will be walks on the beach, candlelight dinners, loving gifts and flirtatious encounters that help feed their need for romance and to make connections with others.
Scorpio will express their passion and need for emotional and physical fulfilment through a loving relationship. As well as having a strong sex drive they are also highly emotional. Scorpio will put determination and passion into anything that captures their interest.
Sagittarius will put enthusiasm and passion into the goals they are striving towards at any given moment. Capricorn will be passionate about their ambitions and will strive to succeed at whatever they do. Aquarius are passionate about their opinions. They are also likely to put passion into voluntary efforts they take up throughout their life.
Pisces are passionate about their feelings and through directing their passion into creative endeavours they are able to express their emotions in a tangible way.
Other aspects in a birth chart can enhance or dilute the passion which is why the Sun signs or zodiac signs give a general indication of how a person might express their passion.
