After consulting the stars, we’ve divined which of the twelve astrological signs is the most creative.

Whether you read your daily horoscopes or you think the zodiac is a load of hocus-pocus, when it comes to deciphering characteristics, astrological signs are pretty spot on.
So just as your zodiac sign might help determine who you can find love with, it can also be a major influencing factor on your career path.
Having deliberated with celestial charts, countless astrological sites and various job surveys, we can now reveal that the star sign which can guarantee you become an artist is: Pisces (Feb 19-Mar 20).

Pisces are intuitive and versatile characters who are happiest when they have a job that is in tune with their sensitive nature. Governed by Neptune, Pisceans have an imaginative, artistic disposition and therefore are most likely to express their creativity through painting or sculpture. As the last sign in the zodiac, their character can take on aspects of all the other signs, making their art exceptionally rich and relatable for everyone.
So if you’re lucky enough to be a Piscean, you’re joining the artistic ranks along with the Italian Renaissance polymath Michelangelo, the French Impressionist Auguste Renoir, the American photographers Ansel Adams and David LaChapelle, the British artist Anish Kapoor and artist-turned-director Sam Taylor-Wood, to name but a very few.
But don’t worry if you’re not a Piscean, many of the other zodiac signs have creative flair.
Take Taurus (Apr 20-May 20) for example, their aesthetic appreciation for the finer often extravagant things in life gives them a natural artistic eye and a love of painting, sculpting, interior design and even gardening. Famous Taurean artists include Yves Klein, Joseph Beuys and Dante Gabriel Rossetti.
Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18) with their unconventional and visionary approach are potentially suited to photography, and Capricorns (Dec 22-Jan 19) value craftsmanship. While confident Leo (Jul 23-Aug 22) with their ambitious nature – a key characteristic to survive in the art world – will carve out successful careers in design, architecture, even art like fellow Leos, Andy Warhol and Marcel Duchamp.
