Have you ever seen an ugly car and thought to yourself, "What on Earth would possess someone to buy that?" The decision may have been out of the driver's hands. More often than not, the choices we make are dictated by our personalities. And for those who believe in astrology, our personalities are largely dependent on which stage of the Zodiac the sun traveled through the day we were born. Skeptical? Not everyone is. In fact, a Harris Interactive poll reveals that 31% of Americans believe in astrology – while another 18% think that there might be something to it. Next time you're considering a car purchase, take a little help from the stars.

Aquarius: January 20 - February 18
FIAT 500

More Fiat Info

An oddball at heart, the Aquarius prefers the unconventional over the traditional. To him or her, it's more satisfying to deviate from the pack and try something new than do what's typical and expected. In fact, Aquarius thrives on his or her individuality - which is why the Fiat 500 complements them so well. This smallish urban runabout features a nostalgic design that some would liken to a cross between a clown car and a pea pod, but it's far from ugly. What's more, on the outside it looks as if it would be cramped, but its cabin is actually roomy and – within the context of a small, 2-door hatch – reasonably comfortable. And though it doesn't appear much stronger than a lawnmower, Fiat's 500 has enough pep to make city driving a breeze. An Aquarius couldn't ask for a more unique car. But don't buy the Abarth version – you'll be confused with a Scorpio.

Pisces: February 19 - March 20

For more Chevrolet Volt info
The Pisces exists in a state of limbo -- caught somewhere between the real world and their imagination. They do this to escape the harsh realities of everyday life. While such thinking can often lead to procrastination, it also allows the Pisces to empathize with the pains of others and conjure up solutions that may one day materialize. For these folks, only the extended-range electric Chevrolet Volt will do. Engineered to achieve superior fuel efficiency, the Earth-friendly Volt should net anywhere from 48 to even hundreds of miles per gallon, and can be charged by simply plugging it into a basic 120-volt wall outlet. Now in its second iteration, the Volt continues to bridge the gap between traditional and out-of-the-box transportation.

Aries: March 21 - April 19

For more Wrangler info

The self-absorbed Aries strives to always be the center of attention - asserting an imposing – yet exciting – impression on everyone they encounter. Though Aries can be overbearing at times, this trait fits them well, as they're strong and confident natural leaders. For this reason, the Jeep Wrangler is perfect for an Aries. Not only does its footprint leave an imposing impression, but its squared-off military design exudes leadership. What's more, its strong off-road capabilities make it a thrilling performer, ready for any adventure.

Taurus: April 20 - May 20

For more BMW info
Valuing security over all else, the Taurus is simple yet attractive, subdued but strong, and predictable yet reliable. Like BMW's 3 Series, the Taurus is a steady performer. As its history suggests, BMW's compact sedan fuses an array of assuring elements to create an everyday vehicle that's comfortable and easy to live with. From its pleasing exterior to its spacious interior, solid performance and handling, the BMW leaves drivers satisfied.

Gemini: May 21 - June 21

For more Viper info
While astrologists believe that the Gemini is too scatter-brained to pay close attention to fine details, they also assert that he or she is quick (both mentally and physically), as well as communicative and adventurous. As such, the Dodge Viper is an appropriate vehicle for the Gemini. In line with the Gemini's superficial nature, the Viper's iconic design looks both luxurious and menacing, although its interior cabin falls short of the refinement found in other, more luxury-oriented sports cars. However, its Ferrari-like power and dynamic road and track handling ensure no moment behind the wheel is ever dull.

Cancer: June 22- July 22

For more Audi A3 info
Cancers are a contradiction, taking comfort in security but always on the lookout for something new and exciting. And while they may give the impression that they're quiet and composed, they actually have very strong personalities. Furthermore, nurturing is second nature to them -- so they always surround themselves with those they love. Of all vehicles, the Audi A3 matches them best. Its long list of standard safety features and excellent performance in federal government crash tests provide security. And though power is the last thing one would expect from a compact sedan or hatch (pictured), the A3 outperforms many in its class.

Leo: July 23 - August 22

For more Alfa Romeo info
To the Leo, image is everything. Always wanting to make his or her presence known, the Leo strives to be the best and attract attention for it. In fact, Leos are always on the hunt for the flashiest, most expensive things in life. And while such taste can result in excessive spending, Leos find the price well worth it. For such a person, only an Alfa Romeo 4C will do. Equipped with a 1.7 liter turbocharged DOHC four located immediately behind the driver and his or her close friend, the tightly drawn Alfa, in either Coupe or Spider form, makes everyone who sees its wildly aggressive design drool with envy – perfect for the attention-seeking Leo.

Virgo: Aug. 23 - Sept. 22

For more Tesla info
Virgos are perfectionists. While they may appear composed on the surface, inside they're constantly thinking of new and innovative ways to improve. The result is an exceedingly high level of fussiness - which isn't always a bad thing. No car embodies such qualities as well as the Tesla Model S. Outside, the Tesla looks modern and attractive and enjoys a 200+ mile all-electric range from its battery pack. However, inside it features a level of sophistication fit for its distinction as a super luxury car. The seats are comfortable and luxurious, the controls ultra-modern and intuitive, and the materials fully appropriate to its 21st-century vibe. Tesla is a benchmark design – and definitely a Virgo's car.

Libra: September 23 - October 22

For More Chrysler Pacifica Info
Libras go to great lengths to ensure that family and friends are comfortable and satisfied in their surroundings. Artists at heart, they combine creativity with intelligence to ensure harmony for everyone. Following suit, the Chrysler Pacifica is engineered to seat seven passengers in a variety of arrangements that meet everyone's needs. In addition to traditional face-front seating, the Town & Country offers Stow 'n Go seating; this allows the second- and third-row seats to fold flat for increased cargo room. Like the Libra, the all-new Pacifica has everyone's best interest at heart.

Scorpio: October 23 - November 21

For more Focus RS info
With the Scorpio, there's always more than meets the eye. On the outside they appear calm and collected, while inside they're brewing with intense passion and power. The effect is an air of mystique that surrounds them everywhere they go. In line with the characteristics of a Scorpio, Ford's Focus RS features an attractive, low-profile hatchback design. Yet under its hood is a 350-horsepower turbocharged I4 engine that delivers loads of raw, unadulterated power to all four wheels. Combined with balanced handling, the performance-tuned Focus RS takes turns and twists better than many – if not most – sporty cars. Indeed, Scorpios will appreciate the secret it keeps.

Sagittarius: November 22 - December 21

For more Miata info
The Sagittarius is free-spirited, always optimistic, and would rather enjoy the present than dwell in the past or on the uncertainties of the future. Consequently, it's hard to pin a Sagittarius down - as most find routines too boring to bother with. With such a flighty personality, only a sporty convertible will do. Case in point: Mazda's MX-5 Miata. It's sexy, quick, and offers little room for extra passengers and cargo - perfect for Sagittarius' dread of drama and baggage.

Capricorn: December 22 - January 19

For more Tacoma info
Always a hard worker, the Capricorn sets goals and does what's necessary to achieve them -- no matter how tough the job. He or she is ambitious and business-minded, yet always practical. Fitting the bill, the award-winning Toyota Tacoma delivers exactly what the Capricorn needs. Its long truck bed, hefty towing and payload capacities, off-road capabilities, and rugged design make it the perfect workhorse. Add to that its impressive crash test scores and solid build quality, and the Tacoma just makes sense.
