We all have that witchy, astrology-obsessed friend. In your case, maybe you're that friend: the one that warns everybody to lie low during Mercury retrograde, or checks your horoscope more than you check your emails.

If you are an astrology buff, then you already know that your zodiac sign is based on your birthday. There are 12 zodiac signs altogether, each with its own unique set of identities, strengths, values, and preferences. From your personality traits to your communication style, it's all written in the stars.

The study of astrology is actually quite extensive — we're just touching the tip of the iceberg here — but the concept of power colors is one that you need to know. Astrology experts say that for each sign in the zodiac, there is a color that enhances the very best qualities of that sign (per Your power color is there when you need to feel extra radiant. Some astrologers even believe that wearing your power color can bring you abundance and prosperity, according to Lifestyle Asia.

Fashion is the best way to add more of your power color to your life, and we'll show you how — you can thank us later.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

If your zodiac sign is Aries, you're a bold one. Aries are all about new experiences, and your spontaneous ways are sure to lead you on some incredible adventures, per InStyle. You crave excitement, and you won't stop until you find the rush that you're looking for. But beware — you have an undeniably impulsive streak that can get you into trouble, per Today. Before you get swept away with all of your big, brilliant ideas, slip into something red. Nothing represents your larger-than-life persona like this eye-catching hue.

Add a rush of red to your everyday look with crimson nails or a showstopping red lip. Simple red accessories, like shoes or a phone case, will also add extra flair to your look. But let's be real, Aries — subtlety isn't your thing. If you really want to stand out, you can't lose with a daring, red monochrome outfit. Fashion stylist Jordan Boothe said it best in a conversation with Adidas: "If you're ready to shut down a room, you're ready to get the attention — all eyes on you — you should be wearing red."

Along with the rest of your numerous talents, you're also a natural-born athlete, per Bustle. Try wearing red when hitting the gym to enhance your powerful, competitive nature. Red is just the color to help you turn up the heat on your next heart-pumping workout. The endorphin rush, paired with your power color, will make you feel incredible.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

As a lover of beauty, nature, and luxury, you're naturally fashionable, Taurus. You appreciate the simplicity of nature, but you also have an opulent side, per Mind Body Green. Lavish meals, fine wine, and extravagant goods are the ways to your heart. Your hardworking and reliable nature is cherished by those around you — but you need to remember that life shouldn't be all work and no play. Sometimes you just have to shake things up and get out of your comfort zone. So try getting adventurous with your power color, green.

"Green is great for inspiring Taurus to tap into their innate prosperity and their gift of creating abundance," astrologer Guadalupe Terrones told Reader's Digest. Taurus has an eye for quality, so fabric is key when it comes to wearing your power color. Play to your indulgent side with luxurious fabrics like Pima cotton, silk, or leather, per Esquire. You might also embrace your power color with green outdoor apparel — like a vest, socks, or fleece — that will offer you a cozy experience while you get outside and enjoy the natural green around you.

Since your style is as practical as you are, a comfy green sweater and jeans will give you the consistency that you crave, per Who What Wear. This fresh, sophisticated staple is an excellent go-to for team Taurus.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Your zodiac sign is represented by a pair of celestial twins, but in reality, there are many different sides to you. Warm, charming, and social, you truly have the gift of gab, per Allure. Anything that's intellectually stimulating will capture your attention, even if it's only for a short while. This curiosity can make you a bit of a style chameleon, Gemini. Your power color, yellow, is perfect for you because of the endless options for wearing it.

Gemini is known for being adaptable, so you'll love experimenting with yellow tones. If you're a novice at wearing this color, yellow accessories can really light up your style. Harper's Bazaar recommends a statement piece, such as a belt bag, jewelry, or scarf. When it comes to fashion, yellow is the color that represents your ever-changing interests. In the winter, you'll want to layer this hue underneath neutral colors like gray or camel. Anything goes in the summer months, when you might feel inspired to pair yellow with blue or purple, per Woman & Home.

If you don't know which shade of yellow suits you best, celebrity stylist Miranda Holder has some advice for you. "If you are warm, choose richer hues with an orangy undertone, and if you are cool, the lime greeny, acid yellows will work well," Holder shared with Woman & Home.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Nurturing, moody, and sentimental, Cancer is the sweetie that we all need in our lives, per InStyle. You're in touch with your emotions, Cancer — and even if that feels like a vulnerability, let us assure you that your soft, squishy heart is an absolute gift to this world. You're generally no-nonsense about your fashion choices, so your power colors are the perfect middle ground between simple and glamorous. On one hand, white is a quintessential color of basic wardrobe staples. And on the other, silver can be played up to epic levels of glitz — it all depends on what mood you're in.

Your fashion sense is crisp and clean with a playful flair, per Glamour. That's why a simple, white button-down shirt is your ultimate style staple. Versatile and layerable, you'll fall in love with the endless ways to wear a button-down. Go glam by pairing it with a smoldering black mini dress — or keep it laid back with a pair of neutral bottoms and sneakers, per Vogue.

Add some dazzle to your look with silver jewelry. According to Cosmopolitan, the more sculptural the better. Silver jewelry will add a bit of artistry to your style with intriguing shapes and textures.

Leo (July 23-August 22)

Leo, your energy makes the world go 'round. You're a natural-born leader who lives for the spotlight, so you're quite fearless with your fashion choices. Ruled by the sun, you are creative, passionate, and confident, per InStyle. Since you're all about dressing for success, you prefer looks that enhance your regal vibes. That's why your power color is gold. Decadent gold fabrics, glitzy accessories, and sequins are all on the menu for team Leo.

Jewelry is a perfect way to add an instant punch of gold to your look. Gold jewelry can glam up any outfit — plus, adorning yourself with this precious metal can make you feel like a total goddess. According to L'OFFICIEL, nothing beats a simple pair of gold earrings. But there are other possibilities, too. Trendy gold necklaces and chains are the essence of chic right now, and you can layer multiple gold necklaces for maximum style. There's nothing more radiant than a Leo who is dripping in gold jewelry, so don't be afraid to go all out.

Your hair is also an opportunity to wear your power color. The hair color known as winter gold, which is adored by celebs like Kaia Gerber and Zendaya, features soft gold tones that illuminate your locks. Style enthusiasts are falling in love with hues like winter gold because "they're low maintenance and complement all skin tones," expert Min Kim told Pure Wow.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

From the backdrop at Coachella to mint chocolate chip ice cream, there's no denying that green and brown are an elite color scheme. It's the perfect power color combo for you, Virgo, with your earthy vibes and stellar fashion sense. Your style is a reflection of your personality — serious and structured, but with a playful and sensual side. Sometimes, you're a bit of a perfectionist. You might need an occasional reminder to relax and enjoy life, per Cosmopolitan.

Speaking of relaxation. "Brown is a relaxing color because it increases tryptophan (related to sleep and our immune systems) and serotonin (linked to mood). Brown typically gives us warm, settled feelings, reminding us of connections to earth, home, and family," color expert Kate Smith told Refinery 29. Wearing your power colors can also help you get into a more flexible and creative mindset, because any shade of green will look good with any shade of brown, per Stylist. Green can be quite soothing if you go for a subtler shade. But if you're feeling adventurous, add some flashes of lime or neon green to your outfit.

A green layer atop neutral brown is the perfect way to dip your toes into this color pairing, per Vogue. Some great staples for this look are light green trousers, a brown duster, and any lime green statement piece, according to Stylist.

Libra (September 23-October 22)

Justice and fairness are top values for you, Libra. Your balanced approach to all of life's challenges is inspiring to those around you — but that's not the only thing you're admired for. Many people are drawn to your charming and polite ways, too, per Vice. Represented in the zodiac by a set of scales, you're an ace at weighing every option available to you — just be sure that it doesn't take you a lifetime to make a decision. Libra is ruled by Venus, the planet of art and beauty, so style is an innate part of who you are. Your power colors, pink and blue, are sure to make you feel balanced and inspired.

One way to nail this combo is by colorblocking, a method that involves mixing two or more solid colors in one outfit. In an article for Refinery 29, fashion writer Frances Solá-Santiago paired a bold pink blazer with blue shorts, showcasing the power of colorblocking the two shades. When it comes to this look, neutral accessories work well. Or you can go bold by adding another vibrant hue. According to New Idea, yellow is a great addition to the pink-blue lineup.

Popsugar shared that pink brings a sense of calm while blue has a restorative effect. And if anybody can strike a harmonious blend between these two shades, it's definitely you, Libra.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Scorpio gets a bad rap in astrology, but anybody who walks in your shoes will see you for who you really are: intuitive, deep, and fiercely loyal. You can be a bit secretive at times, but you enjoy the mystery of it all, per Cosmopolitan. Just like your fellow water signs, Cancer and Pisces, you're guided by emotion. Your complex inner world might be difficult for others to understand — but remember, your emotional intelligence is an amazing strength. And with the help of your power color, black, you can be as brooding and enigmatic as you'd like.

When it comes to wearing the color black, you've got plenty of options. The soft goth aesthetic, for example, is equal parts spooky and romantic — just like you. This look is the essence of all-black everything, with tights, pleated skirts, and lots of textured fabrics, per Pure Wow. For a Victorian bookworm vibe, add some black-rimmed glasses to this look. Staple items are also a great way to pack on your power color. According to Pure Wow, a curve-hugging T-shirt and a biker jacket are must-haves for stylish Scorpios.

Your confidence and sex appeal are legendary, Scorpio. So, when you really want to shine in your power color, go for sheer fabrics and lace. You might even hop on the naked dress trend.

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

Curious, creative, and straightforward, Sagittarians are the movers and shakers of the zodiac, per Allure. Thanks to your adventurous nature, your life is full of twists and turns. You love to socialize, but your conversations are far from surface level. Philosophical discussions offer you just as much excitement as any escapade. Just like your fellow fire signs, Aries and Leo, you can be quite intense — and sometimes, your inner fire needs a little bit of quenching. That's why the cooling magic of your power color, purple, was made for you.

The purple-wearing possibilities are endless. If this hue is new to you, InStyle recommends that you start with some purple accessories, like socks, earrings, or a purse. This color begs to be worn with neutrals like beige and gray, but it's also a dazzling companion to pink, lilac, and pastel blue. If your style is typically minimalist, Who What Wear suggests swapping one piece of your outfit for something purple.

Purple is your ideal power color because it can help you feel grounded without stifling your creative side. As Guadalupe Terrones explained to Reader's Digest, "Sagittarius should wear purple in preparation for a presentation or a public-speaking engagement so that it can evoke in them the role they were made to play: the philosopher king."

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Just like your fellow earth signs, Taurus and Virgo, you're naturally organized, structured, and industrious. No goal seems out of reach for you, Capricorn, because you'll work as hard as it takes to achieve success. Your hard-line demeanor is anything but dull, though. You're loyal and caring, and your witty sarcasm is totally irresistible (per Well+Good). You also thrive in leadership roles, so people really look up to you. You're a classic, so it makes perfect sense that timeless brown and gray are your power colors.

According to Medium, gray enhances your practical, middle-of-the-road approach to life because the color blends black and white, which are opposites. Solid gray pairs masterfully with solid brown — however, patterned garments are also a smart choice. Plaid, pinstripes, or tweed can add a little more artistry to your neutral get-up, per Medium.

Who What Wear makes a compelling case that brown, gray, and other neutrals are anything but boring. A brown trench coat, gray sneakers, and gray joggers are just a few staple pieces for chic Capricorns. A black belt and handbag will help pull together any neutral outfit.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

As the final air sign on the zodiac, you're captivated by big, visionary ideas. Matters of community and humanitarianism are dear to your heart, Aquarius. You're charming and collaborative, which is why you enjoy a rich social life, per Allure. While you're out there changing the world, you need to make sure that you tend to your inner world as well. Your power color, blue, is perfect because it promotes calmness and stability, per Very Well Mind.

"There is a uniqueness about the Aquarius woman," astrologer Susan Miller told Glamour, "and she's always a bit different, on the cutting edge of what's new and hot." Aquarius is a natural-born rebel, with a fashion sense to prove it. That's why unique pieces are a must for you, per Glamour. Asymmetrical garments, interesting cutouts, and unusual necklines will help you make a statement out of your power color. Even your blue jeans can reflect your originality when you go for unique styles, like printed or embellished denim. Accessories will add your signature Aquarian sparkle to any look. Go bold with chunky blue jewelry, like geometric earrings or fun resin rings.

With so many shades of blue, the style possibilities are truly endless. If you're not sure which shades to try first, the experts at Who What Wear recommend periwinkle and aquamarine.

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

Sensitive, generous, and creative, Pisces are the dreamers of the zodiac. Astrologer Kesaine Walker told USA Today, "Pisces is the most gentle of all the signs. They see the world through rose-colored glasses." You could spend hours alone, getting lost in poetry, music, or crafts — but you also love to socialize, especially with people that you care deeply about. It's easy for you to get lost in your lush daydreams, which can make you a little unreliable at times.

That's why light green is your perfect power color — it gives you a sense of grounding without stifling your unique self-expression. By itself, light green is already an ethereal color. To channel the dreamiest of vibes, try going for fabrics that move like your element, water. According to L'OFFICIEL, sheer, flowy dresses are the ultimate Pisces aesthetic.

Your power color is more versatile than you might think. Neutral shades like beige and white are perfect complements to light green. But you can also create a standout look by pairing light green with pink, yellow, orange, or blue, per Marie Claire Australia. And don't forget the accessories. A light green purse or claw clip will add a heavenly dash of color to any look.
