@punkarsenic, it helps if you think of each astrological sign as pursuing one concept above all others. So, Aries want truth, Taurus wants ownership, Gemini wants freedom, and Cancer wants security. Leo wants respect, Virgo wants perfection, Libra wants harmony, and Scorpio wants satisfaction. Finally, Sagittarius wants adventure, Capricorn wants achievement, Aquarius wants the future, and Pisces wants completion.
You can classify them according to the four classical elements. The fire signs (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius) want experiences, while the earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn) want status. The air signs (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius) want concepts, while the water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces) want feelings.
I can go into detail about your sign, if you like.
