As someone who religiously checks her horoscope — daily, weekly, monthly and across any and all websites and apps I can find — it's safe to say I have a deep understanding of my own (and my friends' and family's) signs. Sure, it sounds borderline obsessive, but as a Cancer, I almost always need validation for how I'm feeling (to be perfectly honest with you) and a heads up on what kind of nonsense I might be in for that day, week or month — you know, to mentally and emotionally prepare myself, as Cancers do.

And as someone so endlessly fascinated by zodiac signs, I've always wondered: Who shares my sign? What characteristics do we both share, and do we all have similar professions and/or passions?

After doing a bit of research, I discovered — as you will when you click through this slideshow — I shared my sign with Malala Yousafzai and Ida B. Wells, among others; women who are equal parts compassionate and passionate, loyal and always on the quest to ensure the people around them are safe and loved and taken care of.

That said, let's take a look at the rest of the signs. Here are the famous women now and in history who share your zodiac sign.
