Whereas introverts feel exhausted being around other people, extroverts feel energized. They are confident without being arrogant and have high self-esteem without coming off as egotistical. Because they love being around other people, it has a natural reciprocal effect—other people love being around them.
Just because they’re outgoing doesn’t mean they lack introspection. But due to the ineffable pull of the stars that shine in the night sky above them, they are more likely to look outward than inward. They feel that there is no experience that is so precious it’s not worth sharing with others.
You won’t find water or earth signs on this list; only fire and air signs. Here are the five zodiac signs most likely to be extroverts.
Leo is a fire sign ruled by the sun, and the sun is the star of our solar system. The sun just loves being the center of attention and having all the other planets revolving around it. Leos are natural-born hams who bask in the spotlight almost as if it were a tanning bed. They love walking down the red carpet and smiling broadly as the paparazzi and shutterbugs “ooh” and “ahh” at them. They are likely to be social-media influencers who thrive on attention and “likes”—not because they’re insecure or needy, but because their natural charisma draws people to them like moths to a flame.
Aries are the life of the party, whether they’re throwing the party or crashing it. A fire sign that is ruled by Mars, they are born leaders who have a knack for making people want to follow them wherever they go. If it’s 5AM and the party is petering out, Geminis will be the ones who say, “Have you ever seen the beach at sunrise? No? OK, get in your cars and follow me.” Then, after the sun has risen and there’s nothing left of the impromptu beach fire but burning embers, Aries will keep the party going by suggesting a fantastic breakfast place that’s within walking distance of the beach.
Gemini is an air sign, which makes them adept at communicating; they are also ruled by Mercury, the planet of intelligence and conversation. But there’s no point in being a communicator if you don’t have an audience. Geminis are masters of the written word and public speaking. Probably the chattiest of all the signs, they are at ease speaking before a crowd of 1,000 or running the discussion in an online chat room. Gemini is the most likely sign to draw a crowd the minute they open their mouths or start typing. They may not crave or need attention so much as they feel they deserve it, because their confidence dictates that the world not only wants, but needs to hear what they have to say.
Of all the extroverted zodiac signs, Libra is the most confused by introverts. They simply can’t understand why anyone wouldn’t feel warm huddled within a crowd, cheering on a common cause. They can’t comprehend why someone would shun parties, get-togethers, and family reunions. But despite this, they have an effortless charm and amiability that makes them the sign most likely to meet introverts and draw them out of their shell. They are ruled by Venus, which makes the naturally sociable, and they are also an air sign, which gives them a special skill at communicating. Because of this, they are the sign most likely to find common ground with wallflowers and shy people.
A sun sign that radiates joy and enthusiasm, Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, making them natural adventurers and seekers. Because of their curiosity and drive to explore uncharted territories, they are compelled to learn new things, visit new places, and meet new people. There are no strangers to a Sagittarius, only friends they’ve yet to meet. They have a warm, infectious, welcoming laugh that puts everyone around them at ease. Their unforced and unrehearsed optimism gives them a magnetism that makes others want to be around them as much as they savor being around others. Sagittarius and the rest of the world—it’s a match made in heaven.
