We all know the feeling when we find out someone shares the same star sign as us. There's an instant bond and lightbulb moment of "Ah, that's why she loves Love Island as much me and shares my passion for prosecco."

If you're a Virgo or Libra chances are you get this feeling a lot as according to YourTango they are the most common zodiac signs, with the most common birth month said to be September.

Virgos are known for being practical and loyal while balanced Librans are natural peacemakers and and see the world sunnyside up.

Well, now we know the most popular, what about the rarest?

Following the same logic, the rarest zodiac sign is Aquarius.

The least common month for birthdays is February, probably because it's the shortest month of the year, which results in fewer birthdays.

Aquarius season runs from January 20 and ends February 18, so in addition to being the most idealistic, Water Bearers are also born under the rarest zodiac sign.

Star quality

An Aquarius paired with an Aquarius, meanwhile, makes for an ideas-led, free-flowing love can last a lifetime. They think alike, understand why outside interests and friendships matter and their inventive love styles are a perfect match.

The air sign does have its more challenging traits though, as does every sign. They can be impulsive, unpredictable and inconsistent. Just when you think you are starting to understand them, they'll do something to surprise you.

Perhaps the greatest trait of an Aquarius however is their lack of a materialistic attitude. They don't need the latest Gucci bag to be happy as loyal friends and a loving family are enough for them. They will always protect the ones they love and want nothing more than to have an exciting group of BFFs and family they can rely on.

What Is the Rarest Sun Sign?

The month with the fewest birthdays is February simply because it's the shortest month, but the full-length month with the fewest birthdays is January. That makes Aquarius (late January to late February) the least-common zodiac sign. Sources do not agree on the second-least-common zodiac sign, but some suggest it is Gemini, and others suggest Leo. If we were to count only the youngest Americans, the second-least-common zodiac sign would be Capricorn.

Aquarians are smart, friendly, open and direct. Great company (if you can catch them, because they do like their ~space~) and always happy to help, advise or support you (as long as you ASK them, because they’re not great on picking up non-verbal signals, they live in their own head a lot). Aquarians are attractive because:

  • They’re ~one-offs~, and their eccentric and quirky ways are refreshing. Their brain simply runs on different tracks to everyone else’s.

  • They say what they think and with great eloquence. You know where you are with them.

  • They have beautiful eyes, and an enchanting, faraway look. Aquarians make you feel like they’re thinking ~big thoughts~.

Some famous Aquarius:

  • Angela Davis

  • Virginia Woolf

  • Frederick Douglas

  • Michael Jordan

  • Yoko Ono

  • Grigori Rasputin

  • Huey P. Newton

  • James Joyce

  • Audre Lorde

Some refer to Ophiuchus as the rarest zodiac, but that is somewhat of a misnomer.

Those who follow sidereal astrology sometimes include Ophiuchus as a 13th zodiac sign in addition to the 12 signs found in tropical astrology.

Under sidereal astrology, those born between November 29 to December 17 (or November 30 to December 18, depending on who you ask) have their Sun sign in Ophiuchus.

Because this sign is rarely used, some might identify if as the rarest sign, but when most people ask which are the most and least common signs, they really mean within the range of the 12 zodiac signs we typically think of.

4 Least common zodiac signs, following Aquarius

2. Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Leos make up only 7.1% of the population, and they are fiery and proud. They love being the center of attention and are often the stars of the entire room. If you tell Leos that they are the second least common zodiac sign, it won’t bother them because their egos can take it. Furthermore, their love of life keeps them going.

3. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

The Sagittarius group accounts for only 7.3% of the population. They tend to be one of the laziest zodiac signs as well, and don’t always love to work. Being near the bottom of this list probably won’t bother them too much.

4. Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Aries people make up 8.1% of the population. They tend to have lots of energy and a very strong desire to get what they want. In fact, your average Aries doesn’t take no for an answer just like that.

5. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Comprising 8.2% of the population, Capricorns are extremely smart and therefore don’t like to waste time on unnecessary things. They can seem cold at times, but they have a lot of love to give. They’re also very logical and practical, which makes them good in business-related matters.
