Given that Star has such a strong personality, many people might be wondering about Jeffree Star’s Zodiac sign.
Jeffree Star’s zodiac sign is Scorpio. Like most people, Star’s personality matches with some aspects of his astrological sign, while others are less fitting.
Read more below about astrology, the traits of a Scorpio, and how well Jeffree Star’s personality matches his zodiac sign.
What is Astrology and is it Real?
The study of astrology, wherein one studies the influence of stars and planets on the lives of humans has been around since at least the 2nd millennium BCE. Despite this long standing search for meaning in the sky, astrology is considered a pseudoscience, with research showing horoscopes and star charts are no more accurate than random chance.
Despite this, over 70 million Americans read their horoscopes daily, with numbers even larger worldwide. There are websites, books, phone lines and in-person readings dedicated to giving people insight into the elusive nature of the unseen future.
Most commonly known are the zodiac signs (also known as a sun sign), which is based on the date of one’s birth and is the basis for one’s personality, influencing actions and emotions. There are 12 zodiac signs, each corresponding to a constellation in the sun’s path.
Each of the zodiac signs correlates to different personality traits, and also has ruling planets, as well as corresponding to one of the four elements of nature: earth, air, water, and fire. All of these details combined give distinct profile assessments of those who fall under an individual zodiac sign.
Scorpio and Star: A Celestial Combination
Jeffree Star was born November 15, 1985, which places him under the sign of Scorpio. The sign of Scorpio falls under birth dates ranging from October 23-November 21 each year.
Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac and is based on the constellation Scorpius. Scorpio is a water sign, meaning those born under this element are likely to be more sensitive and intuitive than most.
Scorpios are often passionate and powerful, with many exuding charm and charisma. Those who fall under this sign are often tenacious, but also cunning and cutthroat in nature, removing those who stand in the way of their goals.
All of this ties into Scorpio being associated with scorpions, known for their painful sting, which releases toxins into its victim. In an article about Scorpio for Allure magazine, the association was described as, “ Like their celestial spirit animal, the scorpion, Scorpios lie in wait and strike when least expected. Life is a game of chess for these calculating water signs, who are constantly plotting several steps ahead in order to orchestrate an eventual checkmate.”

Star also owns multiple other businesses and investment properties, which cemented his fortune and allows him to lead a rather lavish lifestyle that includes private jets, fancy cars and multiple mansions.
Star is also no stranger to being a fan of the zodiac. Star created a color called “Scorpio” for his Velour liquid lip line, taking to Instagram to show off a snap of the shade. Star’s website describes the color as, “This is what happens when grey and purple make love. Jeffree is a Scorpio, so it’s only fitting he made a color in it’s honor!”
