Many of us have experienced that feeling: a sixth sense. As we go about our daily lives, we tune into the vibrations around us. And more often than not, we take stock of our gut feeling. That immediate instinct or intuition are part of our day-to-day human experiences. We often experience that gut feeling without logic or rational information, and it’s usually coupled with a sense of just knowing. It’s a completely normal experience, but if you seem to have that intense, knowing feeling more than others, you might be intuitive.
“Sometimes you are aware that you’re just imagining something and that your mind is making it up, but often, you aren’t,” says writer and intuitive, Virginia Mason Richardson. “Your intuition is your superpower.” Whatever your outlook on why certain people have this trait, some folks experience it more than others.
Do you think you might be intuitive? Are you the person who knows exactly how your best friend’s date will play out? Whether or not your kid will get the part in a school play? Do you know immediately whether someone will be a lifelong friend or partner, without even knowing their last name? Intuition is commonly found in astrology, and it can help people decipher where they land on the intuitive spectrum. Also, every sign has intuitive qualities, it’s really just about expanding and building on that specific trait over time! Below are the top three intuitive zodiac signs.
1. Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Aquarius is one of the most intuitive air signs. Ruled by Uranus, this sign exemplifies visionary traits and fresh perspectives. In terms of intuition, water-bearers can offer holistic viewpoints and will often bring ideas or changes into fruition. Since Aquarians are one of the most proactive in the zodiac, they’ll often use their intuition to stay energetic, independent, and communicative. At the same time, being so inutive can make this people in this sun sign feel extra sensitive, so it’s important to slow down at points and engage in cozy acts of self-care to reset.
2. Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Pisces is known for being extremely empathic, so it’s no wonder that they’re also rather intuitive. Since this sign has a special blend of spiritual abilities, they’re also known for extra psychic senses. It’s as if they can seek the fabric of reality, or glimpses into the future. This water sign often feels completely and can take on the moods of others. But in this feeling, they can also receive messages or dreams than can guide them for future-making decisions. It might seem a little woo-woo, but Pisces often soars with these vibrations or messages from the universe to make choices on their emotional, but accurate gut reactions.
3. Scorpio (October 22-November 21)
Scorpio seems more known to be a zodiac sign that is comfortable in the shadows. They are not afraid of darkness at all, but neither are they afraid of the light. In short, this Mars-ruled sign is thick on experiences and introspection. By carrying their emotions and life outlook through times both heavy and light, they navigate a situation thoughtfully. This is ultra important as this sign is fiery and passionate, which is delightfully intense, but can also be inflicted with more than enough jealousy. Scorpios often rely on their intuition to sort through their emotions without envy. Extra mindful activities for this zodiac sign would be journaling and meditation.
