You're a lover and a fighter, Aries. When something sparks a fire in your heart, whether it's that dream job or that dream person, there's almost nothing that can stop you from pursuing it until it's yours. Passion burns bright for you, so it makes sense that your signature emoji is the fiery heart. When the naysayers tell you your dreams are impossible, you know better than anyone how to follow your heart and prove them all wrong.

Taurus: Houseplant

You're a lover of nature, Taurus, and it's not just because you're an earth sign. Much like a houseplant, you have very specific conditions under which you thrive. Sometimes you need to be the center of attention and bask in the sun, while other times you like to hide away to recharge. The potted plant emoji speaks to your energy. You like what you like, and when you find the right environment, you'll put down roots and blossom.

You're a bit of a mystery, Cancer. Your emotions run deep, and as a result, you tend to go with your feelings when making big decisions. However, that doesn't mean you share them out loud. Much like the dark side of the moon, it can be hard to know what's really going on inside your head. So, what better emoji for you than the crescent moon? Though it may seem distant and cold looking at times, the beauty and magic surrounding the moon's glow is the perfect fit for your own ethereal vibes.

You're so much more than the perfectionist of the zodiac, Virgo. Hardworking and focused, you don't let anything stop you from achieving success.

If you don't know something, you're quick to crack open a book and teach yourself. The stack of books emoji shows off how smart you are, and reading is also one of your favorite ways to relax and unwind.

Libras are compassionate and empathetic. You've got a knack for seeing things from all perspectives and offering some of the best advice. While it's true you're the peacemaker of the zodiac, part of your love for balance and harmony comes from the fact that you like to have a good time! There's an extroverted side to your personality, and you enjoy meeting new people, which is why the disco ball emoji is your best match. Bright, shiny, and fun, it's a reminder to keep things light and not let the little things get you down.

Scorpio: Crystal Ball

You're very secretive and tend to play your cards close to the chest, Scorpio. Others may view you as mysterious and even brooding, but you know exactly what you're about and where you're going in life. The crystal ball emoji is not only the perfect match for your intuitions and ability to read other people, but it's only fitting that the sign that celebrates their birth during the Halloween season has a spooky emoji to match.

There's no doubt that you like to spend your time partying and adventuring your way through life, but that's not all you bring to the table, Sagittarius.

Much like a diamond only forms after it's learned to take the heat, you're tougher and shine brighter due to all the hard work. Let this emoji be a reminder that all the tough times and late nights are worth it.
