How Astrology Affects the Gender Gap

How Astrology Affects the Gender Gap
Ever wondered why lady Libras are very different from male ones? Or why male Cancers don't seem to be designed from the same template as female Crabs? Some astrological signs differ greatly between the genders, while others barely at all. Learn how your gender affects your Sun sign qualities!

Aries
Aries is an active, fiery and quite masculine energy that reflects on both men and women. With Aries, there is always a thrusting ambition to reach the top of the heap. Both sexes are competitive go-getters and adventurers. Aries women are not frilly or feminine, and like Aries men, they make it happen!

Taurus
The Bull is known as being earthy, placid, security-conscious and possessive. Both Taurean sexes share an indulgent approach to life, though the men tend to be higher up the gourmet scale; Taurus females generally aim more for home comforts. Both can be stubborn, though males are more inclined to be noticeably power-hungry.

Gemini
Gemini is a true air sign -- chatty, emotionally detached and more than a little scattered. Whereas Gemini men can be socialites and rather wayward in their affections, the women veer toward being cool and cerebral, and sometimes rather guarded when it comes to romance.

Cancer
The largest gender gap of all occurs in Cancer. Both sexes are emotionally self-protective and homebodies at heart. But with maturity, Cancer women grow stronger and more matriarchal, while the men often stay tied to their mother's apron strings, some of them reluctant to grow up at all.

Leo
Leos are relatively similar between the sexes, though the men are more spotlight-demanding. Leo women have slightly less overblown egos, and can give way more easily -- though often with gritted teeth. Both sexes love to be the center of social attention.

Virgos are talkative, restless, hardworking and a little nitpicky. Both genders can turn into fussy old spinsters if they don't watch themselves! But male Virgos, like their Gemini counterparts, can be wanderers and romantically hyperactive, which Virgo women tend not to be.

Libra
Libra is second only to Cancer in the major differences between its men and women. After all, consider this sign's symbol: the Scales, the balance of opposites. Mr. Libra has a male body with a feminine mind, while Mrs. Libra has just the opposite. He tends to be softer and sweeter, while she can be straightforward and often argumentative.

Scorpio
It's no secret that Scorpios are intense, emotional, private and stubborn. Both genders are right in line with this basic Scorpio energy, though the ladies can be more jealously possessive and stinging in their responses, particularly when hurt.

Sagittarius
The Archer is fiery, hyperactive, adventurous ... and even a bit of a motormouth! It's quite a masculine sign, and Sagittarius ladies tend not to be domesticated or given to too many frills. If anything, Sag males are more intellectually inclined.

Capricorn
The Goat has a reputation for being ferociously ambitious and hardworking, and this is true of both genders, though male Capricorns are often true sweethearts. Cap ladies tend to be cooler, slightly harder on the surface and ambitious as much for social status as they are for career success.

Aquarius
Aquarians are independently minded, emotionally detached and definitely talkative. Both genders share the same laid-back (though stubborn) approach to life. Aquarius men are often more high-tech, while the women simply like to network like crazy.

Pisces
Pisces is a dreamer -- emotionally sensitive and not always decisive. Their gender differences seem to be between Big Fish Pisces and Little Fish Pisces -- the former can be legendarily voracious sharks, while the latter can be timid little trout.
