Leos are all about the spotlight. But Raquel Rodriguez, astrologer and founder of Your Zodiac, says they know good manners make them shine brighter.

"They recognize the importance of etiquette and propriety in maintaining their positive image," she explains.

These regal lions may be over the top, but they're charming, polite, and know how to properly present themselves. And unless you really upset them, they won't lose their cool in public.

Libras are natural diplomats. They don't need wild displays or crazy antics to get people to like them, so simply being themselves is enough.

Tara Bennet, astrologer and spiritual coach at Mediumchat, describes them as top-class hosts. "They display impeccable manners and go to great lengths to make their guests happy."

They are one of the most socially adept signs, after all, so you'll almost never catch these air signs being impolite or rude.

"With Saturn as their ruling planet, Capricorns often display a deep respect for rules and discipline," says Rodriguez, which is what helps them succeed in the workplace.

They value structure like no one else, and while they may seem rigid, they always have a method to their madness. They'll never make a scene, and they'll do their best to be rational and respectful when going after what they want.

You can always count on a Capricorn to follow the golden rule and treat others the way they want to be treated.

Taurus is an old-fashioned sign that adores comfort and luxury, so it's no wonder they err on the side of being proper.

"If we could transport Taurus to an age where bone china cups are used to pour afternoon tea from a silver pot, they'd be in their element," says Bennet.

"Their consistent commitment to being proper stems from their love for order and stability," adds Rodriguez. The only downside to this is that it makes them quite stuck in their ways.

"Virgo's attention to detail is second to none," says Bennet.

As the perfectionists of the zodiac, they are courteous with unfailingly good manners. They always follow the rules and will be dressed impeccably depending on the dress code, Bennet adds.

Virgos might even be too proper at times, veering into a goody-two-shoes type of energy. When you know them well enough, they may loosen up a smidge, but they'll still be acting appropriately no matter the situation.

Not only are Cancers always polite, but they also know how to make others feel comfortable in their presence.

Like Libra, they have a desire to keep the peace, so they aren't going to rile anyone up or create tension. "They need to be liked, which means they do their utmost to make others happy," Bennet explains. "These crabs always aim to be the bigger person rather than say or do something improper."

They're in tune with others and have an innate sense of decency and decorum, Rodriguez adds.
