Aries: Fashionable Fitness Tracker

Feisty, fiery, and full of energy, you're one of the most ambitious signs of the zodiac, Aries. Ruled by Mars, the planet of action, there's nothing stopping you from accomplishing your goals. You need a piece of jewelry that looks professional but also transitions to your busy after-work life. Dayna Schmidt-Johnson, resident astrologer for Writual Planner, recommends a fashionable fitness tracker that will help you "keep on top of all of your fitness goals [and] easily move from the gym to social hour."

Taurus: Dainty Crystal Necklace

You're a sensual and grounded sign, so jewelry that enhances your down-to-earth energy is a must. Taurus rules the neck and throat, so you'll want to subtly highlight this area with a dainty crystal necklace. "I recommend Aquamarine… because it will make earthy, skeptical Taurus gradually get in touch with the divine energy within them," says Virginia Castiglione, resident astrologer for Authority Jewelry. Being a fixed (and stubborn!) sign, you may be slower to change your tastes, so it's best to choose a piece of jewelry that is also an investment piece.

Geminis are the free-spirited extroverts of the zodiac. You love to make a splash with your entrance, no matter the social scene, as long as you're having fun and being your authentic self. So, it should come as no surprise that you prefer to wear carefully curated vintage pieces over the latest fast fashion trends. To get the conversation started, you can't go wrong with a bold vintage brooch. These one-of-a-kind accessories are just as much fun to thrift as they are to wear. And their striking designs are the perfect way to express your personality.

Cancer: Mood Ring

You're a lover of nostalgia, Cancer. And as the sign ruled by the Moon, the planet that oversees our emotions and intuition, you're tuned in to your own feelings, as well as those of others. You tend to absorb a lot of this outside energy, so there's no piece of jewelry better suited for you than a mood ring. In addition to being a "total '90s throwback," Schmidt-Johnson adds that the ring will help your friends know "how you're feeling without you even having to crawl out of your shell."

Ruled by the sun, the planet of vitality and youth, you like to wow and need a piece of jewelry to match your extroverted personality. You love compliments more than life itself, and nothing grabs attention quite like a statement necklace. Get creative with colors, beads, and even mix and mix several different necklaces together. Castiglione also recommends something with a star charm, as it'll help you to embrace your talents "and share the spotlight when that's what's needed."

Virgo: Classic Pearls

For this Venus-ruled, fashion-forward sign, beauty and style are a big deal. Any jewelry that shows off your sophisticated taste is a must. As the natural romantic of the zodiac, you're a particular lover of one-of-a-kind, sentimental pieces. Express these traits with a vintage heart-shaped locket around a dainty gold chain—a personal keepsake that will be unique to you.

Scorpio: Body Piercings

Scorpios tend to be a sign of extremes—dark and mysterious or warm and affectionate—which makes them difficult to read. You're not likely to experiment with trends; you prefer to express your individuality, thanks to your co-ruling planets Mars, the planet of passion, and Pluto, the planet of transformation. Body piercings are, therefore, just the thing to help you stand out. Nose, lips, eyebrows—once you get started, Scorpio, you'll want to get more and more!

Fun-loving and adventurous, you're all about making a statement, Sagittarius. However, as a sign that's always on the go, you stay away from jewelry that gets in the way of your action-packed hobbies. Much like your personal relationships, the right jewelery will allow you to embrace your freedom and won't have you feeling bogged down. "Waist beads are the perfect accessory for travel (no tech to lose!) and hide easily under your clothes when needed," says Schmidt-Johnson.

Capricorn: Classic Chain Necklace

Whether attending a fancy dinner party or just heading to work, you're always dressed to impress. However, Capricorns typically don't have time for all the fuss of a jewelry box. You're very status-conscious and prefer to have a few investment pieces. A timeless gold chain necklace is a sophisticated piece of jewelry that will last for decades. It can be worn anywhere, with just about anything, making it the perfect accessory for the zodiac's hardest-working sign.

As the rebel of the zodiac, you're a lover of all things unusual and unexpected. You tend to wear colorful accessories that highlight your vibrant personality or tell a story from your many travels. Aquarius is the water bearer, and as such, rules the calves, feet, and ankles. Bring some intentional awareness to this part of your body with a charming anklet. "I would recommend choosing an amethyst charm to complete the look and enhance Aquarius' drive for constant change," says Castiglione

Pisces: Recycled Ocean Plastic Bracelet

You love to embrace your creative and spiritual sides, and you understand the importance of living your values. "Pisces are our dreamers, the ones with great hope for the future and an intuition for what's coming next," says Schmidt-Johnson. "Show the world that you mean business with a bracelet made from recycled ocean plastic. Saving the fish and saving the planet is a job well done!"
