How to tell someone's star sign without knowing their birthday

It’s likely that at some time or another, you’ve had someone try to guess your star sign, or maybe you’ve wanted to put your observation powers to the test and try to guess someone else’s.

How is it that some people manage to nail your sign with such accuracy?

Well, they’re likely using some of these tips and tricks.

(And by the way, an easy one: if anyone stares you down in this challenge and defies you to have a clue at guessing their sign, they’re probably a Scorpio – proud, challenging, private.)

While there’s no totally foolproof method to getting someone’s star sign right – beyond just asking them for their birthday – there are some techniques that will help you land more often than you fall.

First, spot their element

The 12 signs are divided into four elements: Fire, Air, Earth and Water. Narrowing a person down to the right element gives you a much better chance of getting their sign right.

How to spot the elements? Use your intuition. Think about how they come across to you, what words you’d use to describe them to a stranger, what their aura or presence feels like.

An Air sign will come off as smart, analytical, talkative, curious and witty.

A Water sign will feel super caring, empathetic, intuitive, emotional and sensitive.

The Fire signs are often louder, passionate, creative, enthusiastic, or temperamental.

Earth signs are the rock-solid crew, very practical, grounded, materialistic and stoic.

Don’t overthink it or try to analyse too deeply. Let your mind relax and see what aspects of their nature come most strongly to mind. And, you’ve got a one in four chance of guessing right, which isn’t too bad.

Once you’ve got their element figured out, you can narrow down even further.
