When creating a new Sim in The Sims and The Sims 2, the Sim will be given the Zodiac sign that's closest to the personality that was chosen. As the player assigns and reassigns personality points, the display will change to show which sign the Sim will have with that mix of points. Zodiac signs returned in The Sims 3: Late Night and in Patch 17. They do not affect a Sim's personality or lifestyle.

In The Sims and The Sims 2, there is a preset personality for each Zodiac sign. In The Sims, a player who wants a Sim to have a specific sign can cycle through them by clicking on the part of the display that shows what the Sim's Zodiac sign would be. In The Sims 2, the Sim will initially be given a random Zodiac sign and the associated personality. Players can change this by clicking on the symbol for the Zodiac sign they want the Sim to have. In both games, the preset personality for a sign is a starting point; players can reassign personality points as they see fit. Personality traits affect not only the things Sims prefer to do, but also their relationships. In The Sims 3 personality points were replaced by a system of traits, which Sims either do or do not have.

The Sim will be able to learn new behaviors or become closer to another zodiac sign in personality but still maintain its original sign, such as Tara DeBateau having the Leo sign but her personality is exactly the same as that of a pre-created Gemini. The justification is that these traits are learned and passed genetically from parents to children, but in this case Tara is an adopted child. This happens with most playable Sims in Pleasantview, Strangetown, Veronaville, and Belladonna Cove where their signs are different from its original, such as Jessica Peterson being a Libra sign and having the personality traits of a Create a Sim Leo.

Sims will generally get on well with other Sims who have the same sign, because they are attracted to others with similar personalities. However, personality and zodiac are separate contributors to chemistry, because Sims will keep the same sign even if their personality points are altered. "Attracted to" and "disgusted by" are not absolutes, but modifiers that help or hinder the growth of a relationship. Sims with incompatible signs can become good friends, and even lovers, if they have enough else in common. However, it'll take longer, and they'll have to work at it harder. Likewise, Sims with compatible signs but little else in common will have trouble building a relationship, and may even end up becoming enemies.

Tip:
Supposedly if a sign has another personality than it's original one, it will be recognized by the game as the closest similar sign,[3] and this will work for the chemistry table above. For example, an Aries has the personality closest to an Aquarius so it will be recognized as an Aquarius.

Late Night

Zodiac signs have returned in The Sims 3: Late Night and in Patch 17. They have no effect on personality or lifestyle, but they do make it easier to have contact with people of certain Zodiac signs. For example, a Pisces will be attracted to a Scorpio, Cancer, Capricorn, Virgo and Taurus.[1]

Zodiac Signs from The Sims 3: Late Night.
Sims can discover other people's signs by asking them in the romantic interactions section: "Ask sign". Also note that one of the options a vampire has when reading a Sim's mind is that Sim's sign. Sims may be repulsed by the Sim because they don't have compatible signs or the Sims may get along well because they have discovered that their signs are compatible. Zodiac signs are randomly chosen for Sims who were made before Late Night.

Trivia

  • Cancer is rather a unique personality. In The Sims, having all personality points in the middle, the player will get the Sim as Cancer. In The Sims 2, through boolrop testingcheatsenabled true, having 10 personality points in each area will also produce a Cancer.
  • In real life, a person's zodiac sign (also called an astrological sign) is determined by their date of birth. Thus, two people born on the same day will share a zodiac sign. In-game, however, Sims may be born on the same day but have different signs, since a Sim's sign is determined by their personality and not by their birth date.
