4 Zodiacs Who Are Prisms Of Positivity

When you expect the best, you release a magnetic force in your mind which by a law of attraction tends to bring the best to you.

Norman Vincent Peale, The Power of Positive Thinking

So much in life depends not on your circumstances, but on your attitude toward them. Winning the game of life depends not so much on the cards you’re dealt, but on how you play them.

A pessimist is someone who can take anything good and find a way to make it bad. You can call them pretty, and they’ll wonder why you didn’t call them beautiful. You can give them a pay raise, and they’ll ask why you didn’t give them more. You can share happy news with them, and they’ll feel jealous.

On the other hand, an optimist can always see the sunshine behind the clouds. They can take Mona Lisa’s smile and turn it into a Cheshire cat’s grin. When someone hands them an insult, they cheerfully hand it back with a shiny ribbon and a bow on top.

These are the four zodiac signs whose positive attitudes bring out the best in themselves and everyone around them.

1. Leo

It would be completely out of character for the King of the Jungle to get mopey or depressed. Leos are as strong as the Lion that symbolizes them, as vibrant as the sun that rules them, and as passionate as the fire that represents them. Leos are natural-born leaders with an overpowering sense of charisma. They laugh in the face of negativity and are confident to the point of borderline arrogance. They are so unceasingly positive that it rubs off on everyone and everything around them. They can turn a frown upside-down and shine a spotlight on the darkest situation. If you’re feeling down, no one can lift your mood better than a Leo.

2. Sagittarius

Sagittarius is symbolized by an arrow pointing up toward the sky, and this perfectly encapsulates their endless optimism—the sky’s the limit! They are ruled by Jupiter, the largest planet and the one that represents expansion and good luck. A mutable modality, they can effortlessly adapt to any challenge. Naturally curious, they are all about conquering new frontiers rather than retreating. Experimental by nature, they love to try new things rather than clinging desperately to what’s familiar. Fear excites them, setbacks intrigue them, and they take bad news like a setup line to the funniest joke they’ve ever told.

3. Aquarius

Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, the planet of surprises and thinking outside of the box. They roll with the punches and are endlessly adaptable. For them, every problem has a solution, every question has an answer, and every setback is an opportunity. They view negative situations a chance to solve a problem rather than an excuse to wallow in self-pity and become immobilized. Like a trained boxer, they attack a problem from unique and unexpected angles. They don’t see a glass as half-empty or half-full; they see it as filled to the brim once they find more water—and since they’re the Water-Bearer, the glass always winds up full, anyway.

4. Gemini

In Buddhist lore, the parable of the “Second Arrow” involves a warrior who comes to the Buddha griping and moaning about the fact that he’s just been shot with an arrow. But the Buddha points out that by fixating on his misfortune, the soldier has shot a second arrow into himself. In keeping with this, Geminis are fully capable of recognizing negative situations or mindsets; they just don’t let themselves get consumed by them. They are wise enough to know that a bad situation only gets worse if you worry and fret about it and feel sorry for yourself. They’re not unrealistically positive; they just realize how counterproductive it is to be negative.
