ARIES JESTER: 21 March to 19 April

First and foremost, what you have to understand about the Aries Jester is that this is the most brutally honest person you could ever come across. The Aries Jester is, at their most primal level, a combination of Metal and Fire; persistent and passion. Not to mention that as the first sign in the Western cycle, Aries lacks the pretense other signs carry. They are the new-born of the zodiac, and as we know so well, if ever you want to hear the truth, go to a child. The Aries Jester’s honesty will be almost insulting, but those around them will appreciate its rarity, and so this person will become one who is highly respected and trusted by almost all. They are dynamic souls, with much courage, valor and energy. Their intelligence will be astounding, and their talents will be brilliant. There isn’t much that an Aries Jester isn’t capable of. Aries Jesters are fiercely independent and determined, but although they are big dreamers, they often lack the maturity to get their dreams off the ground.

Aries Jesters do not take love seriously and much prefer the freedom to do as they please and answer to no one. Still, they have honorable hearts and wouldn’t hurt a fly, though their arrogance is often mistaken for self-acclaimed superiority.

They are attractive people with many followers and eager supporters, but they often make it difficult for themselves to be liked because of how direct and forceful they can be. There is much to gain by relaxing a little bit and approaching life with a “live and let live” ideal. A word of advice for the Aries Jester – being the passionate person you are, you should use and direct your influence for the benefit of others. In addition, you should choose to use your words constructively when it comes to confrontation.

TAUREAN JESTER: 20 April to 20 May

There are few people as stubborn as the Taurean Jester. Influenced by the incorrigible metal aspect and the fixed aspect of the bull and the rigid Earth element, if ever you want to change this person’s mind, you will most likely die trying. The Taurean Jester knows exactly where they stand, and if they are comfortable there, they will not move a single muscle or a single inch, no matter what. They are grounded and one of the more stable Jesters, although sometimes this becomes hard-headedness that only serves to frustrate those around them to tears. However, this stability and decisiveness means that Taurean Jesters make the most loyal friends and partners, and once you win their favor you will have it for life.

Unlike other Jesters, the Taurean prefers routine to chaos, and they have patience enough to slowly build themselves up to the version of themselves they want to be. Still, they are Jesters and if they can be in the limelight, they will be. They enjoy being the center of attention and go out of their way to impress others. They are perfectly comfortable both outside the home and within, and although they require support from others every now and then, are hard workers who are as close to being organized as it’s possible for a Jester to be. A word of advice for the Taurean Jester – at times, you should learn to be more flexible and break out from that routine lifestyle. Doing so, this will add more colors to your life.

GEMINI JESTER: 21 May to 20 June

Gemini Jesters are some of the most charming Jesters of the lot. From the distance this person will seemingly have it all; talent, intellect, charisma, success, potential and attractiveness. They are personalities that are built for stages. They were meant to be seen and heard one way or another, and to the Gemini Jester, living a life of solitude, in the shadows with no one to play with is their idea of hell. They are sociable people, who enjoy hearing the stories of others as much as they enjoy sharing theirs. Along with Pisces, Gemini is certainly the most talkative of all the Jesters and will probably never run out of things to say.

Their communication is much stronger than that of other Jesters too.

But for all the strengths that Gemini amplifies, there are weaknesses that are made stronger too. Gemini – very much an intellectual, thoughtful sign – is far more vulnerable to the mental disorders that plague the Jester’s sensitive soul. They are more insecure than others, and although they hate the idea of it, are typically the first to withdraw from society when they feel they cannot face it. Their moods will swing between extremes with enough power to make those closest to them dizzy.

In love, Gemini will be a gentle lover, but a shy and sometimes needy one too. Although they are ready to settle, they can be quite a handful and will find that settling with the right person is a challenge they often lack the energy to rise to.

So long as the Gemini Jester is supported and loved, they will thrive in society. If not, they will hide away and miss out on all the glory the world has to offer them. A word of advice for the Gemini Jester – you must learn to be more independent. Listen also to your heart, not just your mind. Be open to join a group where you can be accountable and you will be able to work on your emotional intelligence faster than you imagine.

CANCER JESTER: 21 June to 22 July

The Cancerian Jester is a dangerous combination because as with all Cancerian, this person will long for comfort, extravagance and luxury – but their Jester influence makes them lazy and unwilling to work for it. This means that there are two kinds of Cancer Jesters; those who are fortunate enough to be spoilt and can afford to live their dream lives, and those who are so uncomfortable in the year and now they make up the small community of Jesters who actually have a strong work ethic.

Cancer is a water sign and so creative by nature. You will most likely find a strong creative mind with good business sense and many an innovative idea in the Cancerian Jester.

Often these ideas are what lead the Cancerian Jester to success. They will see what society lacks and make a plan to change it – and then make a profit. It works for them, so they stick to it.

They enjoy being nurtured and resolve to only work when they have to, otherwise they prefer to stay at home, enjoying all the pleasures their comfort zones have to offer.

In love, while Cancerian are the most loyal of the Western zodiac, they are only interested in love if it’s real and has potential to last forever. They do not chase skirts, one-night stands or flirtations. Because of this, they rarely fall head over heels and friendship is much more of a priority to them. They can gain from lowering their standards in many things (but not too much) and being open to people, things and ideas they would initially brush off as beneath them. It might just bring them happiness, but they have to give it a chance first. A word of advice for the Cancerian Jester, you need to be able to work, live and thrive in less than ideal situations. There will be times where you will be more copious, and other times, more abased. It’s all part of life and the sooner you learn this, you will move on in life with less worries and to its fullest extent.

LEO JESTER: 23 July to 22 August

Imagine a diva and you will have a pretty good idea of what you are getting yourself into if ever you feel inclined to become involved with a Leo Jester. These people are never ashamed to toot their own horns, beat their own drums and fly their own flags. They give confidence an entirely new meaning, and one can only wonder if arrogance is the root of it or if they are simply that happy to be themselves. Leo Jesters are focused and can certainly achieve whatever they put their minds to. But Leo Jesters also have a tendency to get ahead of themselves and feel as though they do not have to work hard because good things will come to them no matter what.

The Jester is one of the less dominating Leo personalities and in many ways the Jester calms the Leo character in them by adding a sense of fun and silliness to the otherwise serious and even snobbish Leo. These people are born for the spotlight and will not thrive or be happy anywhere else.

The Leo Jester will have many romantic partners but will rarely settle because rarely do they feel the need to. They get what they want, then get bored and like Aries, much prefer freedom to commitment.

The Leo Jester must learn that although they are capable and deserving of the praise they receive, they must not allow it to go their heads. They must be careful not to crush people in their selfishness. A word of advice for the Leo Jester – being the driven person you are, you should learn to work better in a team. As the saying goes, “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”.

VIRGO JESTER: 23 August to 22 September

The Virgo Jester is an opinionated spirit who appreciates academics more than the arts but is absolutely proficient in both. They have strong morals and beliefs and will be quite vocal about it. They are innovative intellectuals with a stronger work ethic than most other Jesters (except for Cancer). They are observant and analytical and understand people to a degree most Jester’s don’t care to learn about.

But Virgo Jesters can also be perfectionists who waste time in dwelling on the details as opposed to other Jesters who waste time by procrastination. This can make the Virgo Jester difficult to work with, and also amplifies the paranoia and nervousness that is innate in all Jesters.

Virgo Jesters are rarely interested in love, but when it comes a-knocking they are not people who will resist it. They are loyal and gentle in love, if not a little bit controlling. A word of advice for the Virgo Jester – you should learn to relax, and to understand that not everything can be controlled. Sometimes you just have to go with the flow and accept your fate. You can be more trusting to people and also learn to be more open-minded.

LIBRA JESTER: 23 September to 22 October

The Libran Jester is often perceived as the whole package: They have the looks, the mind, the soul, the charm and the talent. They are often refined in their culture, make excellent speakers, and are enjoyable people who many desires as friends (if not more). The Libran Jester is a diplomat who – unlike other Jesters who fight for the greater good – goes against the grain for the sake of humanity.

Libran Jesters are people’s people, who live to defend the underdog. They are egalitarian and libertarian and use their Jester ways to be the voice of the voiceless. They would not be out of place (and in fact would probably be concentrated) at rallies, protests, summits and marches.

But as with everyone, with the good comes the bad and the bad for the Libran Jester is their sense of self-importance. The Libran Jester is the best example of those who firmly believe that their way is the right way, and when people disagree or argue, the Libran Jester will not be kind. They can be too judgmental at times, and at times will even be condescending and insulting to those who lead different lives to them.

Libran Jesters approach love cautiously but crave it. They make loyal, honest partners with integrity and honor. A word of advice for the Libran Jester – you must learn to be more open-minded and accepting, lest you damage your own causes by being labeled as a hypocrite. By being more open-minded, you can gain another angle or perspective on the situation you are in.

SCORPIO JESTER: 23 October to 21 November

Scorpio Jesters are intense people who are so focused on pleasure and emotion that little else matters to them. Their Metal stubbornness, fixed aspect and water element mean that this person is not one to ignore what their heart wants and that is usually satisfaction. The Scorpio Jester is fueled by passion and driven by power. They have such strong, alluring personalities that everyone they come across will either adore them to death and beyond or hate them forever. There is no grey area where a Scorpio Jester is involved. Only black or white.

Scorpio Jesters are curious people who, much like Virgo, are skilled in both creative and intellectual paths. They are hard workers, but only when they have to be. Otherwise they prefer chasing pleasure rather than success.

But the Scorpio Jester comes with a catch; they are the most emotionally sensitive and this means that they are vulnerable to instability – particularly if there is no one who has their back.

In love, Scorpio Jesters are one of a kind, who will have leagues of desperate suitors falling at their feet. They will be more than happy to entertain these people in the name of fun and simple pleasure, but what they truly want is permanence. They are romantic and passionate and typically settle early in life.

A word of advice for the Scorpio Jester – you must learn to not wear your heart on your sleeve so often. Your intensity is often off-putting and so you should also exercise restraint.

SAGITTARIUS JESTER: 22 November to 21 December

The last of the fire signs – Sagittarius is the least explosive of the lot, but this in no way implies that the Sagittarian Jester is not an intense person. They are. They just typically reserve that intensity for those closest to them. They are honorable, outspoken, courageous people with strong minds and bright souls. They have a keen sense of willpower and are full of energy and ideas but are often disheartened by those around them. The Sagittarian Jester is an idealist, and it won’t be uncommon for this person to fall victim to the Jester’s depression – or more commonly, bouts of rage – because the world is not they wish it were.

They are intellectuals with good intentions, but often no motivation to even try. They are sensitive creatures who easily become invested in people and things. But they are also great worriers, who mostly can’t filter out the bad in the world and feel it so much it negatively impacts them. This leads to come across as angry souls who are full of angst, when really, they are gentle people who only wish they could make more of an impact on the world around them.

In love they will be genuine, but impatient and often controlling and domineering.

A word of advice for the Sagittarian Jester – you should learn to be more optimistic and more present. This way you experience the good to a greater degree than doing the bad. You can also be a little less spoilt and a little more mature.

CAPRICORN JESTER: 22 December to 19 January

The Capricorn Jester is the most disciplined of the signs, but in doing so they sacrifice a bit of creativity and freedom. They are bold people who are mostly even-tempered and controlled. They have a strong character and are highly ambitious. Their Earth element keeps them grounded and organized, and they have a keen sense of duty to whoever needs them: be it friends, family, partners or even jobs. They are natural leaders who don’t mind carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders if it’s necessary. It’s safe to say that the Capricorn Jester is the most integrated into society, but this only applies if it’s not expected from them. The Capricorn Jester will do whatever they feel is right in their own souls. Do not ever attempt to make a Capricorn Jester do anything. You will pay the price for it. The Capricorn’s temper can be terrifying. They are loyal in love and are family people through and through.

A word of advice for the Capricorn Jester – As your communication is lacking and you rarely appreciate the opinions of others, this is one area in which you could improve. You could also do well to loosen up a bit and give in to your Jester nature more often, to keep your grumpiness at bay.

AQUARIUS JESTER: 20 January to 18 February

This is quite the exuberant soul whom not many people understand, or bother trying to understand. They are colorful souls who absolutely refuse to conform. They are often described as ridiculous and strange, but the Aquarian Jester doesn’t mind. In fact, they are proud of the title. They feel it perfectly describes them.

Their stubbornness will get in their way of their own happiness every now and then, and the Aquarian Jester must learn to discern when it’s necessary to fight and when it’s better to stand down. They are generally pacifists though and aren’t often called to arms.

Aquarian Jesters enjoy the idea of love but are not very good at maintaining it. They are far too distracted to maintain relationships and have a lot of growing up to do before they even consider settling down. A word of advice for the Aquarian Jester – your stubbornness will get in the way of your success. Having your pride and ego in place will refrain you from having a collaborative spirit. This is important in attaining success as you will definitely need pillars of support along the way as you climb up the ladder.

PISCES JESTER: 19 February to 20 March

Pisces is the most creative and imaginative of the Zodiac. In dealing with a Piscean Jester you will have a dreamer on your hands. The Piscean Jester dreams are so strong that these are the people most guilty of procrastination and getting in their own way. They are idealists, who live far in the land of make-believe. They mostly live through their art and want nothing more than for this to pay off so that they never have to crawl out of bed again.

This dreamer mentality and unwillingness to live in the real world makes the Piscean Jester vulnerable to insecurity. They tend to hold themselves back, only to feel like failures at the end of it, it’s a cycle the Piscean Jester must break if they have any hope of moving forward.

In love, the Piscean Jester is perhaps the most willing, and in being so, also the most intense. Pisceans are natural hopeless romantics and the drama of the Jester only contributes to their passion for it. They are loyal lovers, who love the idea of being in love.

A word of advice for the Piscean Jester – you must learn to take care of yourself. In addition, you must recognize that there is a time for work and a time to dream – often the two cannot co-exist. You should learn to be more grounded and stay focused on achieving your goals in a practical fashion.

Famous Jester Personalities

It is also vital to understand and model after the success from people. This idea of reading and learning others through conscious observance is one of the best methods for achieving success. From the time you came into existence, you have learnt to crawl, eat, walk and talk by modeling or observing others. According to a study by Harvard University, they found that soldiers who discussed both successes and failures learned at higher rates than soldiers who discussed only failures.

Alicia Keys

Alicia Keys is an American singer, professionally-trained pianist, and a songwriter. She was born on January 25, 1980.

When Keys was 13 years old, she met Jeff Robinson, her manager, who introduced her to the world of music industry. That’s why she had earned much attention from several record company executives, like Clive Davis of J Records. It was Davis who suggested the last name ‘Keys’ as her stage name.

In 2001, Keys successfully released her debut album, Songs in A Minor. Because of its excellent musical arrangement and strong lyrics of the songs, Keys won five Grammy Awards in 2002, including Song of the Year, Best R&B Song, Best R&B Album, Best Female R&B Vocal Performance and Best New Artist.
