While there are many traits that we are taught throughout our lives, starting as young children, there is no denying that each of us is born with a set of natural talents or instincts. These are the abilities that we don’t have to TRY to make happen, nor do we have to go out of our way to choose to act in this way. Instead, when we are faced with a high-stress situation, this is how we naturally respond.

Consider, for a moment (as crazy as this may seem), that we are facing the dreaded zombie apocalypse that keeps coming up in Hollywood an on television. If you watch an episode of The Walking Dead, then you will quickly see that each individual handles the situation at hand differently. Some are called to lead, directing others on what steps to take in order to survive each of the challenges that they face. Others act more as caregivers, tending to those that need healing either physically or mentally. While we aren’t currently hiding out from brain-eating zombies, these same instincts can be seen in our day to day lives.

Look back at the last challenging situation that you had to face in life. What was your first response? Did your gut tell you to run and hide, to step up and support your friends or to take a step back and reassess the situation before you in search of a solution? These hardwired responses are our natural instincts at play. Each of us has a different instinct, formed by our personality trait, strengths, and weaknesses in order to give us the best opportunity to survive anything that life throws our way. By assessing these traits among the zodiac signs, we can predict which instincts you are most likely to possess.

How Powerful Are Your Natural Instincts? Here is What Your Zodiac Sign Reveals:

Builders and Doers: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn

Those that are born under these signs are the feet on the ground in a time of crisis. They are determined to solve the problem at hand, regardless how much hard work, dedication and sacrifice it may require. Determined and reliable, they are generally the first to show up and the last to leave.

Taurus: Often seen as the construction worker sand interior designers of the group, the first thing that Taurus will consider in any situation is how to create a safe, secure and comfortable ‘home’ situation for everyone that is involved. They will work their fingers to the bone, and all they need in return is to see those that they care about feeling content and safe from harm.

Virgo: Those born under the sign of Virgo are total perfectionists and subscribe to the belief ‘if you want something done, you have to do it yourself.’ For this reason, they would rather get their own hands dirty to make something happen, as they believe they will just have to fix anything they ask others to do for them. Their perfectionist ways also ensure that they are tuned into even the finest details, which is key to their success.

Capricorn: Refusing to be blinded by emotions, Capricorns are able to see the situation through a lens of practicality, facts, and data. This focused approached makes them an ideal ‘doer’ in the difficult situations, able to consider all possible outcomes in order to quickly assess what needs to be done here and now in order to handle the challenges set before them.

Guardians and Protectors: Aries, Leo, Scorpio

The first thought of the guardians and protectors is what can they do to protect the quality of life for everyone that they care about. They will go to great lengths to ensure that everyone else is safe, even going as far as putting themselves in harm’s way. This courage to stand tall against even the most frightening of situations is a reflection of their true heart.

Aries: With a courageous fire burning deep within their hearts, Aries are often the first to go running into danger without so much as a second thought to their own safety and well-being. They will fight with everything that they have, refusing to bow down even if the situation appears to be impossible, in the hope that they can save their loved ones from any exposure to the danger.

Leo: Often finding themselves in leadership situations, Leos aren’t afraid to make the difficult decisions to bring their loyal followers to safety. This includes instructing them to a safe location where they can receive the care that they need while the brave and bold Leo faces the situation solo, unafraid of what may be waiting for them.

Scorpio: Scorpios have an intense passion that is unmatched by any other sign, and this will lead them to do whatever it takes to fight for and protect those that they love. They will fight fiercely, without holding back, and aren’t opposed to fighting dirty if that’s what it is going to require.

Providers and Nurturers: Gemini, Cancer, Pisces,

These are the individuals who, when faced with struggles in life, immediately step up to assess the well-being of everyone around them. They are the caregivers, highly in tune with the physical, mental and emotional needs of others. Not only are these the individuals who will personally respond to help others, but they are also the people most often behind the organization of support networks in a time of crisis.

Gemini: Blessed with the gift of gab, Gemini are able to tune into large groups of people with litter effort, making them great public speakers. This is ideal when it comes to larger care efforts, as they can survey a crowd and direct them to their necessary point of safety with ease. They are often seen as the teachers of the group.

Cancer: Compassionate and sensitive, it should come as no surprise to those born under the sign of Cancer that their natural gift is to care for others. They are the nurses and service providers of the group, willing to take a role that could be compared to that of a loving parent.

Pisces: With a huge heart and an unending care for those that they love, Pisces will spend all of their time supporting those around them, offering a shoulder to cry on and a supportive listening ear. They sometimes find themselves overwhelmed by the hurt and suffering of others, but in a time of crisis, they can channel this into a desire to bring nurturing and support to those that need it.

Dreamers and Wishers: Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius

If it were up to these individuals, we would never have to face hard times. Why? While everyone else is focused on the challenges happening today, the dreamers and wishers are already thinking of the future and how they can make it better for everyone. They need to team up with the builders and doers in order to put their dreams into action.

Libra: Seeking to create peace and harmony in the world, Libra is always busy considering what ‘wrongs’ they can ‘right’ in order to make this ideal society a reality. They understand that in order to truly bring peace to the world they have to establish an overall balance, one that certainly isn’t going to be easy, but this doesn’t intimidate them. They are firm believers in justice, providing everyone with a fair opportunity in life.

Sagittarius: There is an incredible curiosity to those born under the sign of Sagittarius. They are always open to discovering new opportunities and experiences at every turn. They have more questions than answers and will dedicate their lives to the pursuit of the answers they seek. This can lead them to unique solutions to some of the problems we face today.

Aquarius: Those individuals born under the sign of Aquarius are a unique group, able to see and experience the world around us in a way that no one else could even begin to fathom. This ability to see things in such a different light often provides them with incredibly innovative solutions to even those problems that were once believed to be impossible.
