Most people know at least a little bit of the basics about Western astrology and that there are 12 sun signs that are said to govern our personalities. Folks who read their daily horoscope or follow astrological websites might even know some basic facts about each sign: Taurus can be stubborn, Virgos are neatniks, and so on. But as any astrologer will tell you, each sun sign is as complex as we ourselves are, and there are some surprising things about each zodiac sign (including your own) that you probably weren't even aware of.
Some of the surprises have to do with statistics. (Did you know that the most common zodiac sign is Virgo, according to Exemplore? That's because early- to mid-September is the most common birth time for babies in the U.S.) Other shockers puncture the long-held beliefs about each sign. (No, Scorpios do not hate everyone, thank you very much; if that were true, there'd be a lot of November kids out there with no friends at all.)
These are just a few of the lesser-known facts and traits of each of the major sun signs. See if you agree with what you see here about your own sign or those of your family and friends
