“Je viens du ciel et les étoiles entre elles ne parlent que de toi.” – Francis Cabrel

Astrology is a universal connection that transcends language. Francis Cabrel must have been in touch with the constellations, as he wrote, “I came from the sky and among the stars they talk only of you.” Here’s the French quote that goes with your Sun sign.

Aries / Bélier (March 21 – April 19) :

“Being a fool sometimes does not make one a fool all the time.”

Behind their sometimes confrontational exterior, Aries knows how to have a good time and is an expert at making people laugh when they’re in the right mood. However, when it’s time to be serious, they can shut down that playfulness in an instant and become a strong leader, ready to address a problem.

Taurus / Taureau (April 20 – May 20) :

“Proving that I am right would be admitting that I could be wrong.”

The level-headed, sometimes stubborn Taurus hates being wrong and will go to extreme lengths to maintain their credibility. A Taurus looks at the world with optimism that things will remain stable and secure, as they crave the feeling of safety. Happy in the knowledge that they are often correct, a Taurus does not enjoy being contested.

Gemini / Gémeaux (May 21 – June 20) :

“A lone man is always in poor company.”

An air sign that thrives on communication and being around people, the extroverted Gemini will spend as much time as possible in the company of others. They pick up energy from the vibe of friends and their surroundings, so if you’re having a good time, the Gemini is too.

Cancer / Cancer (June 21 – July 22) :

“There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved.”

If you’ve never heard someone gush about love for 5 hours, you’ve clearly never met a water sign like Cancer. Cancers fall fast, head over heels until they come crashing to the ground, only to fall for someone new the next day. The loving and nurturing Cancer’s affection extends beyond romantic love; they will always be able to spare a few hours to comfort a friend or volunteer for a charity.

Leo / Lion (July 23 – August 22) :

“To win without risk is a triumph without glory.”

The boldest sign of all, a Leo wants not only to triumph, but also to be rewarded for their struggle. They are the risk-takers of the astrological chart, and as their central planet is the sun, they expect to be revered and respected in a way the other signs are not and always aspire to attain glory.

Virgo / Vierge (August 23 – September 22) :

“Reason is the madness of the strongest. The reason of those less strong is madness.”

The wise, organized Virgo relies on reason constantly in their daily life. Every decision a Virgo makes is well thought out; they probably have a chart displaying every outcome of each lunch meal decision in their planner (with attached photos). Virgos love things which are concise and efficient, as they view bells and whistles as unnecessary.

Libra / Balance (September 23 – October 22) :

“One does not change a winning team.”

The constellation of the Libra is a weigh scale, signifying their love of equality and balance (if that French translation didn’t give that away). The mentality of ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ corresponds to how Libras feel about the world: there’s no need to alter something that’s perfectly balanced and functional as it is.

Scorpio / Scorpion (October 23 – November 21) :

“I have loved to the point of madness; that which is called madness, that which to me, is the only sensible way to love.”

Ever the control-freak, a Scorpio is obsessed with people who are obsessed with them. The Scorpio is intense about everything, especially love, as they intend to build strong relationships which are meant to last. When they find someone they’re compatible with, they can become infatuated to the point of obsession.

Sagittarius / Sagittaire (November 22 – December 21) :

“Everything belongs to those who can appreciate it.”

Sagittarians are curious and open-minded, always wanting to explore the world around them. They are the optimists of the horoscope, and are skilled in finding the beauty in every situation. In their nature to expand their knowledge as much as possible, a Sagittarius will always be interested in traveling or learning a new skill.

Capricorn / Capricorne (December 22 – January 19) :

“In a great mind everything is great.”

Capricorn is a very ambitious sign; born leaders, they know what they want, and they aren’t afraid to work for it, no matter what it takes. They have thoughts of what the world should be like, and consider themselves quite intuitive.

Aquarius / Verseau (January 20 – February 18) :

“We love only what we do not wholly possess.”

Aquarius is a free-spirited air sign who hates being tied down, so the idea of not being entirely possessed appeals to Aquarians. Similarly, the Aquarius feels no need to tie down a partner in a complicated relationship, and prefers to go with the flow when it comes to love and life.

Pisces / Poissons (February 19 – March 20) :

“We see well only with the heart.”

Pisces is the sign most controlled by their hearts. A water sign like Cancer and Scorpio, they are incredibly in touch with their emotions, and know they have to look inwards in order to guide themselves. The Pisces is compassionate, and uses their heart to connect with others.
