Aries ~ Right Brain
is imaginative, instinctive, creatively expressive, passionate, vibrant, and spontaneous. much of their life is approached through the realm of dream, impulse, and curiosity. however they can reign in on the left, considering they appreciate factual experience to call upon and black and white conviction

Taurus ~ Left Brain
taurus is an earth sign and prefer logic, strategy and evidence to base conviction upon. they operate with organization and cohesive, formulated plans. however taurus can reign in on the right, they can apply the creative to problem solving and typically have a high creative intelligence, especially for music and design

Gemini ~ Right/Left Brain
gemini is a sign of duality and focuses on fusing right and left brain functioning. on one hand, geminis are logical, intelligent, book smart, and academic. they have a good factual memory and mind for learning. on the other, they are imaginative, enchanted, curious, expressive, and impulsive. gemini is the epitome of operating from left and right hemispheres

Cancer ~ Right Brain
cancers are largely creatively and emotionally based people who function based on ideals, imaginative reverie, and pure artistry. this is an exemplary emotional intelligence. however a great mind for business, and unusually so, mathematics, means cancers are very at home in the right

Leo ~ Right Brain
leo is all about creative activity, passion, vibrancy, and radiant expression. everything the leo does is approached from an artistic perspective. their incredible leadership skills however, require a strategic and cohesive left brain emphasis

Virgo ~ Left Brain
the virgo mind is a network of data, statistics, sequence, and methodical systems. virgo appreciates sheer logic, clarity, and rational approaches. much of the virgo’s tremendous problem solving ability however generates from a subtly and mostly unknown about creative right

Libra ~ Right Brain/Left Brain
so the libra can achieve the perfect synthesis they aim for, aggressive calculation and impartial left brain reasoning pervades with the right brain’s creative idealism and propensity for colour, form, and art. the image of balance is beautiful

Scorpio ~ Right Brain
the scorpio resides in unseen worlds, pulverized by simmering passion, evoking desire, and powerful creative intelligence. there is no logic when soaked in these unconscious fortresses. however the scorpio is very much one for cultivating truth through fierce observation, logical psychological application, and a strategic, concentrated focus, their left brain operation is also profound

Sagittarius ~ Left Brain
the sagittarius bases conviction on experience and reviewed fact. they are intelligent people who appreciate truth and a cohesive plan to achieving it. however sagittarius reigns in on the right brain, considering their tremendous intuitive imagination, expansive perspective, and radiant vibrancy

Capricorn~ Left Brain
the capricorn person is largely routine based, logical, and rational. they appreciate reason, fact, and research. capricorns operate with strategic organization and concentrated focus. they dwell in their right brain when envisaging the next dream

Aquarius ~ Left Brain
the aquarius person has a scientific approach to life and experiences. they prefer research to call upon and the notion of logic and poised judgment. the aquarius however spends much time operating from the right brain, considering their inspiring creative activity, far ranging ideas, and eccentric, expressive personality

Pisces ~ Right Brain
the pisces mind operates from an almost intoxicated, idealising fragmented motion of imagery. much of the approach to life is through the creative and the emotional. they are inspired and magical. however pisces operate with ease from the left brain, considering their remarkable duality and archetypal reservoir of qualities

The Zodiac as Art & Why

Aries: dance
The intensity and freedom in dance complements the whirlwind of energy that is Aries. There need not be technique for it to be beautiful, and this gives the Cardinal Fire sign the space to release their electricity through movement in a display of untamed & elusive intensity.

Taurus: landscaping
Taurus long to live in a world of manifest beauty. They have an eye for aesthetic refinement and a taste for palpable delight; these things could be put to good use in the dirt, among trees, within flower buds. They could return Earth to its Eden state, one backyard garden at a time.

Gemini: painting
The Gemini mind, full of noise and vividity, is perpetually fabricating mental pictures. Their heads may overflow if they don’t release some of it. The blank canvas never interrupts; it absorbs the message and beauty that is placed upon it in the form of color and brushstrokes of genius.

Cancer: photography
Cancers live in memories. They cherish beautiful things gone by perhaps more than they savor the present. To be able to capture their lives and immortalize themselves & the things they adore through the art of photography would save them from trapping themselves in homes that the past has burned down.

Leo: acting
Performing emotions is a concept the passionate Leo will be fascinated by. Nothing is real under the spotlight, and at the same time, it’s the only thing that is real. The stage is a sanctuary where the lion is allowed to roar as loud as they can, to set themselves on fire and be showered in applause for it.

Virgo: drawing
The tip of the pen or pencil which drags crisp lines across a bright white page is a metaphor for Virgo’s pursuit of perfection. There is precision, prestige, and purity in the visual elegance of picture-making which is something that matches the Mutable Earth sign like nothing else can.

Libra: fashion
Libras belong in the imaginary heavens they are capable of creating. Their perceptible, corporeal sophistication would fit in amongst angels in costume, the caricatures of loveliness, the twinkling lights and sparkling catwalk; they would have everyone in awe, and they would finally be at home.

Scorpio: cinematography
Film can be one of the sickest art forms, and it is always one of the rawest. There are no lies in cinema, and yet, when fictional, it is all lies. It allows the Scorpion to uncover and lay bare the bloody truth without staining their hands, gives them the freedom to let all the secrets spill without telling anyone a thing.

Sagittarius: sculpting
Sagittarius are always looking for something to make their mark on, whether it be a city or a person. They want to leave behind the signature of their experience. They can mold philosophies with their bare hands and display the wilderness of their discoveries in the marble or clay for all to admire.

Capricorn: architecture
Building empires is what the Capricorn was made for. They are destined to rule over the kingdom they put together brick by brick, whether it is large or real enough to live in or not. A tangible masterpiece to call their own would by the kryptonite of their self-doubt & worldly silence.

Aquarius: music
Music is inexplicable. It’s the sweetest form of sorcery, an alien language, the foreign yet familiar exchange of ideas and emotions through often wordless waves of sound. It allows the boundless Aquarius mind to explore and delve deep into their creativity, to experiment, to express their genius.

Pisces: poetry
Nothing penetrates the soul like a well-crafted poem. It can gently caress you or cruelly batter you, save or kill you, fill you with love or hate, open or close your eyes; either way, it will send you into rapture, whether purely delightful or bittersweet. It gives Pisces a place to show who they really are beyond the fog.

zodiac + flirting

*check mercury, venus & sun

ARIES
You’re the most reckless flirt in the Zodiac!

Your instinctive flirting style is full-on, fearless and direct. Love is always an exciting challenge for you, taking risks is a big turn-on, and you adore the fun of the chase.

Maybe because Aries is ruled by Mars, the god of war, you approach the task of seduction rather like a military campaign. When you’re attracted to someone, you’re quick to take the initiative and immediately go on the offensive. Rebuffs bounce right off you, nothing really scares you (your pluckiness is legendary!), and if at first you fail to score, you simply launch another attack.

TAURUS
You’re the most seductive flirt in the Zodiac!

Your instinctive flirting style is physical, earthy and laid-back. You know how to lure the object of your desire by playing on their senses, using everything at your disposal to arouse their appetite for love.

Personal adornment, scent, food are all important elements of your armory. You’re a master of the art of sexual body language (no-one better understands the erotic power of touch). And you’re generally happy to flash the cash when necessary in order to snare your prey.

No worries if it takes a bit of time and perseverance. Your determination is legendary, and you simply keep on trying to tempt them into submission until they can resist no more.

GEMINI
You’re the most outrageous flirt in the Zodiac!

Flirting comes as naturally to you as breathing. With your quick-fire wit, you’re a master of the art of love banter. And at times - it has to be said - you can be a terrible tease!

Because Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the god of communication, your seduction technique is mainly based around the use of words. The telephone is your greatest ally, nobody text-flirts better than you - and if you wanted to, you could probably talk anyone into bed!

To you, it’s all a good laugh and if it doesn’t work out, no worries. After all, you were only joking - and it’s just a bit of a game.

CANCER
You’re the coyest flirt in the Zodiac!

Yours is a passive rather than an active flirting style. In fact there’s no real need for you ever to venture out of your shell in order to lure your prey. All you have to do is flutter your eyelashes, smile shyly and give off lots of seductive vibes.

Once they’ve made the first move though, you’re quick to follow up – with a few kind words perhaps, or an offer of help. Your trump card is your unique ability to empathize with others’ feelings and give them the sense you really care. Few can resist these subtle tactics and before they know it, they’re well and truly hooked.

LEO
You’re the most flamboyant flirt in the Zodiac!

Your instinctive flirting style is passionate, confident and full-on. For you, love is always a big number which has to be accompanied by bright lights, rockets firing and a loud fanfare. And you know exactly how to set the scene by creating an irresistible sense of theater and romance.

Because no-one better understands the power of flattery as a weapon of seduction, you’re a master of the art of giving - and receiving - compliments. Generous in your praise of others, you’re also happy to show off shamelessly to get them worshipping at your shrine. When it comes to attracting attention, you know all the tricks!

VIRGO
You’re the smartest flirt in the Zodiac!

Your natural flirting style is rather cool and unassuming - perhaps even a little diffident. But what you may lack in confidence or boldness, you more than make up for in intelligence.

For you, seduction is primarily about mental conquest - and no-one better understands the importance of first winning over the other person’s mind. You instinctively know how to lure in your prey, drawing on your sharp wit and perceptiveness. Then, by offering some indispensable piece of information or assistance, you prove your unquestionable usefulness to them. Before they know it, you old clever thing, you have them believing they couldn’t live without you!

LIBRA
You’re the smoothest flirt in the Zodiac!

Your natural flirting style is confident, easy and relaxed. No real need for you to make a big effort in order to lure your prey. You know instinctively how to turn on the charm, quickly creating a sense of warmth and intimacy that very few are able to resist.

As one of the world’s great schmoozers, you can sweet-talk just about anyone into believing they’re the most important person in your life. Whether or not you really mean it is, of course, open to question. But for the moment, at least, they’re feeling good, you’re the best of buddies - and once again you’ve proved that you’re a master of seduction!

SCORPIO
You’re the most dangerous flirt in the Zodiac!

Your instinctive flirting style is cool, calculating - and at times totally deadly! Flirting, for you, is a personal challenge that has to be won - and you’ll stop at nothing to get your prey.

Your eyes are your strongest weapon of seduction and you use these to full effect to bring the one you desire under your power. A key element of your control strategy is to find out as much as you can about the other person in order to identify their weaknesses. Personally, though, you’re careful to give away as little as possible and avoid revealing your hand too soon.

By creating a sense of mystery about yourself, you aim to keep others constantly on the hook. Before they know it, they’re fatally attracted to you - but once the thrill of the chase is over, you may already have lost interest!

SAGITTARIUS
You’re the most playful flirt in the Zodiac!

Your instinctive flirting style is open, friendly and light-hearted. For you, flirting is always a fun adventure - a chance to spread your wings, try out your luck and have a bit of a laugh. Not to be taken too seriously of course; you’re far too respectful of your own - and others’ - freedom.

More than anyone, you understand that humor is the greatest aphrodisiac. No question, wit is your most powerful weapon of seduction, and a good joke your most successful pick-up line. You learnt early on in life that clowning around wins you more friends than trying to look cool and dignified. Now you confidently use your comedian skills to score in the game of love.

CAPRICORN
You’re the shrewdest flirt in the Zodiac!

Your instinctive flirting style is serious and well organized. In fact every move is likely to be carefully planned and calculated as a means of getting what you want - you’re not one to leave things to chance! No worries if it takes a bit of time and perseverance. Your determination is legendary - and you always play to win.

Where love is concerned, you’re a pragmatic realist. No-one better understands the pulling power of wealth and status as a weapon of seduction - and you’re not afraid to flaunt your worldly achievements in order to lure your prey. For you, attracting a mate is fundamentally about winning their admiration and respect.

AQUARIUS
You’re the most shocking flirt in the Zodiac!

Flirting for you is about creating an irresistible sense of surprise and excitement that stuns the other person into submission. So what’s your magic formula? Well, simply to let it all hang out and just be yourself (okay, perhaps with a touch of dramatic embellishment!).

Because no-one better understands the power of attraction of the unusual, you’re happy to draw on all your little quirks and idiosyncrasies in order to lure your prey.

By coming across as a bit controversial, a bit rebellious, maybe a little bit off-the-wall, you aim to blow their mind. Before they know it, you clever old thing, you’ve convinced them they’ve never met anyone so amazing before - and they’re well and truly hooked!

PISCES
You’re the most beguiling flirt in the Zodiac!

Flirting for you is about weaving a little magic, employing a little subterfuge and creating a heady atmosphere of fantasy and romance. What you offer is irresistible: the promise of an escape from humdrum reality to a fairy-tale realm of love.

Certainly nothing here is ever quite as it seems - but then that’s all part of the illusion. If you’re a bit vague or indefinite, it’s not that you deliberately intend to mislead anyone. It’s just that in order to keep the dream alive, you have to avoid getting pinned down.

No question, your most powerful weapon of seduction is your limitless empathy which encourages others to step out of themselves and share their worries and troubles. Before they know it, they’re opening up their heart to you - and you’ve convinced them they’ve found a true soul mate!
