We often notice patterns in our life, and astrology is no different. Think about your own circle of friends and family. You’ve probably realized that there are similarities in zodiac signs. Perhaps you have a few adventure-seeking Sagittarius in your life, or life-of-the-party Leos in your circle. We’re often drawn to people with similar personalities, which is why we might find ourselves drawn to people with the same signs.
However, some zodiac signs are more rare than others — meaning if you have a friend or loved one of these signs, you can consider yourself extra lucky. Those Capricorns born in December and January, Aquarians born in January or February, and Pisces babies whose birthdays fall in February and March are the three least common signs.

What Are the Rarest Zodiac Signs?
If you’re wondering what the rarest zodiac signs are and why, we’ve got the answers for you. Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces are typically considered the least common signs for a number of reasons. Many websites report that December, January, and February are the three least common birth months. Holidays, in particular, tend to be unusual birth dates — Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year’s are the three least common days to be born.
If you have one of these birthdays or were born during one of these months, congratulations! You’ve got a particularly special birthday.
Learn a little more about what the rarest zodiac signs are like:
December 22 - January 19
Symbol: Sea goat
Ruling planet: Saturn
Capricorns are known for being ambitious, hyper-motivated people who enjoy structure and organization. They are masters of discipline and are highly practical people, which helps to fuel their drive. Capricorns are often known for being career-oriented, but their drive, motivation, and natural sense of responsibility can also drive them in other areas of life. Common careers for Capricorns include teacher, accountant, business analyst, scientist, and consultant, to name a few. Capricorns make excellent friends and partners as their practical nature makes them great advice-givers. They are also known for being supportive, loyal, and willing to commit for the long haul.
January 20 - February 18
Symbol: Water bearer
Ruling planet: Uranus
Though some Aquarians are born in the last few days of January, many are born during February — the shortest month of the year — making this sign even rarer. And Aquarius loves to be one-of-a-kind. The water bearer is known for being eclectic and even eccentric — a trait they consider a high compliment. Aquarius wants to stand out from the crowd, making them interesting and fun people to hang around. As an air sign, Aquarius people are also highly interested in intellectual subjects and will spend hours having a friendly debate. They seek partners who can match their wit and charm while also exhibiting some of their free-spirited, independent attitudes. If you’re looking for a unique surprise for your Aquarius friend, a February candle makes the perfect gift.Browse Our Collection of February Candles
February 19 - March 20
Ruling planet: Neptune
As the twelfth sign of the zodiac, Pisces is unique — even if it wasn’t one of the rarest zodiac signs. These water sign individuals are highly in tune with emotions and are considered the most empathetic sign of the zodiac. They have a higher level of connection that may even make them more susceptible to psychic abilities. Pisces are understanding people, which makes them excellent friends and great pet owners. They are known for being creative, imaginative, and highly intuitive people.
