Born under Aries, you are sympathetic, caring and passionate. You have an independent and driven personality, which can sometimes cause you to wear yourself thin and become overbearing to others. Calm your take-charge attitude with your go-to color, red, mixed with light yellows. A bold accent color against a light base is the perfect combination for your sign.

The touchy-feely type, a Taurus person loves being loved and rewarded. Sensual, loving and hardworking, you are a true-blue perfectionist, almost to a fault. Natural palettes calm your soul, so try light beige and grays mixed with delicate shades of lilac purple and mulberry.

The chatty and intellectual Gemini is clever and witty. Curious by nature, you love to read, talk, travel and do anything that will allow you to obtain more information, including communicating with others. Sometimes, you can be seen as too talkative, and you often get restless easily. Yellows and greens make a great combination to keep your intellect high and your anxious attitude at bay.

Quiet, gentle and very sensitive, a Cancer is protective and wise. You are a wonderful friend and a very nurturing partner, but your emotions can get in the way of your otherwise intelligent nature, and you can become moody very easily. Keep your excessive sentimentality at bay with a neutral decor. A pearly shade of white, easy gray and creamy shades are likely to ease your emotions.

Filled with an overabundant and happy personality, the Leo woman is a born leader.

Libras love harmony and peace, and they have a beautiful, serene attitude and a very easygoing nature. However, you can quickly change your demeanor to stand up for your loved ones and your beliefs.
