Default Zodiac Legacy Challenge
As someone who is a bit of a nerd when it comes to astrology and witchcraft in general, I of course love learning about western zodiacs. So I thought I’d bring my love of the zodiac signs to the sims. (Also, sorry if the formatting on this post is weird; I haven't ever posted here before!)

I know that a challenge with this name has been made before, however mine will be more structured for each generation. This is a 12-generation legacy, with each generation representing one of the different zodiacs.

Side note: This legacy is not meant to misrepresent or offend anyone. The generations are being based off of descriptions of the zodiacs from this website: http://www.astrology-zodiac-signs.com/. Feel free to read up more about each zodiac to get a better sense of your sim’s personality!

Starting out:
Feel free to make your founder however you’d like. Traits for each heir will be listed in their section, but their looks are up to you so feel free to get creative! You’ll start out like a traditional legacy on one of the 50x50 lots (or 64x64 if you’d like). Here is a link to Pinstar’s legacy rules: http://www.simslegacychallenge.com/...hallenge-rules/

General Challenge Rules:
• No money cheats
• Mods such as MC Command Center is allowed (and encouraged) but not necessary
• No mods that give you a clear advantage over people who don’t use it
• CC is allowed
• If you don’t complete one of the goals for the generation, you lose the challenge.
o Honestly this is the only way to fail the challenge, other than not producing an heir.

Generation One: Aquarius
“Aquarius’ are shy and quiet, but on the other hand they can be eccentric and energetic. However, in both cases, they are deep thinkers and highly intellectual people who love helping others. They are able to see without prejudice, on both sides, which makes them people who can easily solve problems.”

Who ever said eccentricity was a bad thing? You are a little out there and can be pretty spacey sometimes, but overall you are very passionate about your morals and strive to make other people’s lives better. Just be careful not to become a pushover.

Traits: Self-assured, Insane, Ambitious
Aspiration: Leader of the Pack
Career: Politician

• Reach level ten of the Politician career, either branch
• Complete your aspiration
• Have a club gathering at least once a week (your club can literally be for anything! Get creative!)
• Have three kids, get married as an adult
• Have at least four good friends (they don’t have to be a part of your club)
• Reach level ten of the Wellness skill

Generation Two: Pisces
“Pisces are very friendly, so they often find themselves in a company of very different people. Pisces are selfless, they are always willing to help others, without hoping to get anything back.”

You love to socialize and surround yourself with all different kinds of people. Your parents loved you and raised you to be kind and perhaps a bit sensitive. You can be insecure at times, especially when it comes to your significant other. For some reason, you can’t seem to stay in a relationship for very long. Is there a way to fix this?

Traits: Creative, Jealous, Gloomy
Aspiration: Soulmate
Career: Painter

• Have at least two friends of a different race/gender/sexuality than your sim
• Reach level ten of the Painting skill
• Reach level ten of the Painter career, either branch
• Must go through at least two girl/boyfriends before settling down
• Have two kids
• Own a pool (at least a 4x4 size)

Generation Three: Aries
“As the first sign in the zodiac, the presence of Aries always marks the beginning of something energetic and turbulent. They are continuously looking for dynamic, speed and competition, always being the first in everything - from work to social gatherings.”

You’re competitive and hard working, and can sometimes come across as a bit arrogant. However, you have a bit of an inferiority complex, so every time your sibling or a friend succeeds, you aren’t too happy about it and always try to one up them. But after a while, you realize that you acting this way is pushing away the people you care about. Can you salvage these relationships before it’s too late and the damage is done?

Traits: Hot-headed, Ambitious, Perfectionist
Aspiration: Renaissance Sim
Career: Secret Agent

• Be enemies with your sibling until you are both YA
• Only have one friend until you are a YA, since they were the only one who stuck around
• Repair your relationships as fast as possible
• Reach level ten of the fitness skill
• Reach level ten of the Secret Agent career (any branch)
• Complete your aspiration
• Go for a jog for a total of three hours each week
• Have one kid

Generation Four: Taurus
“Practical and well-grounded, Taurus is the sign that harvests the fruits of labor. They feel the need to always be surrounded by love and beauty, turned to the material world and physical pleasures. Stable and conservative, this is one of the most reliable signs of the zodiac, ready to endure and stick to their choices until they reach the point of personal satisfaction.”

You grew up truly appreciating food and what it meant. You were amazed how a simple meal could bring a family together, and how many memories were made because of that. You were close to your parents and were taught to always stand your ground and share your opinions. However, this caused you to become a little bull-headed (pun intended). You’re super stubborn and don’t like to be wrong, and won’t admit that you are ever wrong. This makes romance hard for you, but you keep trying because you are a hopeless romantic at heart. And once you find that special someone, you are loyal ‘til the end.

Traits: Romantic, Foodie, Materialistic
Aspiration: Mansion Baron
Career: Business

• Have a garden with ten perfect plants
• Only make organic meals (using ingredients, no quick meals, no eating out)
• Reach level ten of the singing skill
• Have a karaoke night with your family every other week
• Reach level ten of the Business career (any branch)
• Complete your aspiration
• Have four kids (one set of twins, feel free to cheat for this)
• Reach Soulmate status with your spouse before becoming an elder

Generation Five: Gemini
“Expressive and quick-witted, Gemini represents two different personalities in one and you will never be sure which one you will face. They are sociable, communicative and ready for fun, with a tendency to suddenly get serious, thoughtful and restless. They are fascinated with the world itself, extremely curious, with a constant feeling that there is not enough time to experience everything they want to see.”

Growing up, you had the “perfect life”: two parents who loved each other, lots of friends, good grades, and a beautiful house. You were living the good life, so why did you always feel like you wanted more? You decide to take a step on your own, leaving your family behind to pursue your dreams in the big city. However, you quickly realize that life is harder than it seems. You can’t find a job you’re comfortable in, you can’t hold down a relationship, but you find solace in entertaining people and throwing parties. Something about being a host really makes you feel happy.

Traits: Noncommittal, Outgoing, Insider
Aspiration: Party Animal
Career: None

• Must have a twin (feel free to cheat for this)
• You are the opposite of your twin, in obvious ways such as style, but also in more subtle ways such as emotions and reactions to events (for example, you could be stereotypical and make one of the twins a “preppy” person and the other an “emo” person)
• Reach level ten of the charisma skill
• Must move out to an apartment with the Needs TLC trait
• Throw every type of party at least once
• Complete your aspiration
• Have three jobs (at least one week for each) before deciding to freelance (writing books)
• Travel to at least two community lots each week and stay there for at least an hour
• Have at least level four in three different skills by the time you’re an elder
• Learn all of the recipes from the vender stalls in City Living
• Have one set of twins (keep trying until you get them)
• Be caught cheating by your spouse (you can decide whether they stay together or not)

Generation Six: Cancer
“Deeply intuitive and sentimental, Cancer can be one of the most challenging zodiac signs to get to know. They are very emotional and sensitive, and care deeply about matters of the family and their home. Cancer is sympathetic and attached to people they keep close. Those born with their Sun in Cancer are very loyal and able to empathize with other people's pain and suffering.”

In another life you would have become a doctor, but in this one you are content with looking after your family and making sure your children grow up the best they can. You’re a loving but strict parent, and just want what’s best for your children. However, will you push them away by being too overbearing?

Traits: Gloomy, Jealous, Family-Oriented
Aspiration: Super Parent
Career: None

• Gen six heir must reach level five in Imagination and Communication as a toddler
• Master Baking skill
• Master Cooking/Gourmet Cooking skills
• Host a tea party (or a small get together) every week. Invite over your neighbors, your friends, your family, whomever you’d like. Must have a baked good for the gathering made by you.
• Complete your aspiration
• Pick up woodworking as a hobby and craft every sculpture
• You live off of your parents’ money until you get a spouse: you are to be a house wife/husband, and will never have a job. You’re allowed to sell duplicate sculptures for money, however.
• Show off your sculptures by putting them on display somewhere in your house!
• Pack a lunch for your kids every morning. If you forget, make them a snack when they get home.
• Keep the house clean—all you have to do all day is chores, after all!
• Have two kids
• Both kids need to have A’s in school

Generation Seven: Leo
“People born under the sign of Leo are natural born leaders. They are dramatic, creative, self-confident, dominant and extremely difficult to resist, able to achieve anything they want to in any area of life they commit to. There is a specific strength to a Leo and their "king of the jungle" status. Leo often has many friends for they are generous and loyal. Self-confident and attractive, this is a Sun sign capable of uniting different groups of people and leading them as one towards a shared cause.”

Your parents were so overbearing to you and your sibling growing up that in your teenage years you began to rebel. Staying out late, skipping class, whatever you could think of. Your parent made sure you got good grades, but you didn’t care about school. All you cared about was your music. You were going to make it big, and you didn’t need calculus to help you rock out on your guitar. You’re arrogant and stubborn, but determined to succeed no matter what the cost. Unfortunately, that means that you can miss out on things that are most important in life.

Traits: Materialistic, Music Lover, Cheerful
Aspiration: Musical Genius
Career: Entertainer

• Have a one night stand with a groupie once you reach level five in your career, which leads to an unplanned pregnancy
o If your heir for this generation is male, come up with some sort of reason for why you got the baby. The mother didn’t want it, the mother died in childbirth, whatever. You can even move her in until she gives birth, then they have a big fight and she walks out on them.
• Reach level ten of the Entertainer career (musician branch)
• Complete your aspiration
• Have one kid
• Never get married, but have as many relationships as you’d like
• Never be that present in your child’s life; you don’t want to be overbearing like your parents
• Reach level ten in two instruments (you can choose)
• Licensing songs is okay to do to make some extra money

Generation Eight: Virgo
“Virgos are always paying attention to the smallest details. Their methodical approach to life ensures that nothing is left to chance and their heart might be closed for the outer world. This is a sign often misunderstood, not because they lack the ability to express, but because they won’t accept their feelings as valid. The symbolism behind the name speaks well of their nature, born with a feeling they are experiencing everything for the first time.”

You grew up without a strong parental figure in your life, which made it hard for you to trust other people. How do you know that they would be there for you when you truly needed them? You’re cautious and shy, but curious about the world. You truly enjoy learning and collecting things, and through this passion is how you meet the love of your life. They are the only person you can trust, but they can tell you’re always holding yourself back and hiding parts of yourself away from them. Can a relationship last with this kind of distrust?

Traits: Loner, Geek, Bookworm
Aspiration: The Curator
Career: Scientist

• Marry a coworker who has at least one trait in common with you
• Get married right before becoming an adult
• Separate from your spouse for a while after a large fight (your choice if they get back together)
• Reach level ten of the Scientist career
• Complete your aspiration
• Have a home library (at least 25 books)
• Finish a collection (your choice)
• Have two kids

Generation Nine: Libra
“People born under the sign of Libra are peaceful and fair, and they hate being alone. Partnership is very important for Libra-born, and with their victorious mentality and cooperation, they cannot stand to be alone. The Libra is an Air sign, with expressed intellect and a keen mind. They can be inspired by good books, insurmountable discussions and interesting people.”

You thrive on socialization. Your parents are kind of shy homebodies, but you crave constant company and cannot stand to be by yourself. This can come across as quite overbearing to some people, so sometimes it’s hard for you to make friends. And, despite being such a socialiable person, you are kind of oblivious when it comes to romance. You are very childish in the best possible way, and are the kind of parent to get down in the dirt and play with your children. You are a very supportive parent and you strive to make your family as happy as they can be, through whatever means.

Traits: Unflirty, Loves the Outdoors, Goofball
Aspiration: Big Happy Family
Career: Social Media

• Go on vacation to Granite Falls every other week
• Encourage your children to do homework and practice skills
• Have your children max at least one skill
• Have four good friends
• Be best friends with your spouse
• Visit at least two community lots each week and spend four hours socializing and meet new sims
• Complete Aspiration
• Reach level ten of the Social Media career (either branch)
o You post a lot about your kids and about your life, so take as many pictures of your kids as you can!
• Have a wall in the house filled with family photographs
• Master photography skill
• Master parenting skill
• Master Herbalism skill
• Have two kids, and adopt one (total of three kids)

Generation Ten: Scorpio
“Scorpio-born are passionate and assertive people. They are determined and decisive, and will research until they find out the truth. Scorpio is a great leader, always aware of the situation and also features prominently in resourcefulness.”

You grew up watching true crime television shows and superhero movies and decided that’s what you wanted to do with your life: bring justice and fight evil. Unfortunately you can’t become a superhero, but you can become a police officer/detective. You want to make the world a better place than it was before, and you want your legacy to be something of legend. Hardworking and dedicated to your craft, you tend to focus too much on work and it puts a strain on your relationship.

Traits: Ambitious, Good, Genius
Aspiration: Nerd Brain
Career: Detective

• Get married to your high school sweetheart
• Complete your aspiration
• Reach level ten of the Detective career
• Reach level ten of the logic skill
• Reach level ten of the handiness skill
• Get a divorce (you can decide who gets custody of your kids)
• Get remarried as an elder, retire from your career
• Have three kids

Generation Eleven: Sagittarius
“Curious and energetic, Sagittarius is one of the biggest travelers among all zodiac signs. Their open mind and philosophical view motivates them to wander around the world in search of the meaning of life.”

You love travel and learning new things. You want to experience as much as you can in your lifetime, which means meeting people different from yourself. You heard that one of your ancestors (generation five) was a big traveller too, so you decide to follow in their footsteps.

Traits: Outgoing, Noncommittal, Dance Machine
Aspiration: Friend of the World
Career: None

• Live in three different worlds for at least a week before settling down
• Have kids with three different people
• Never get married
• Make money freelancing (collecting, gardening, painting, writing, whatever you wish!)
• Completely redesign your house at least once (after settling down for good)
• Go to every festival (unless you’re at work/on a date/at a wedding/etc)
• Complete aspiration
• Master charisma skill
• Master dancing skill
• Master comedy skill
• Travel to the Nightclub every Friday

Generation Twelve: Capricorn
“Capricorn is a sign that represents time and responsibility, and its representatives are traditional and often very serious by nature. These individuals possess an inner state of independence that enables significant progress both in their personal and professional lives. They are masters of self-control and have the ability to lead the way.”

You hated how free spirited and laid back your parent was, and craved structure and discipline. Since a teen, you had a schedule every day after school: do homework, practice your skills for an hour, eat dinner, go to bed. Moving around so often meant that you didn’t make many friends, so you chose to devote all of your time to mastering as many skills as you could. But focusing in on one detail of life made you miss out on the bigger picture.

Traits: Ambitious, Snob, Mean
Aspiration: Fabulously Wealthy
Career: Tech Guru

• Since this is the final generation, you can choose whether to have kids or not. Preferably none.
• Reach level ten of the Tech Guru career (either branch).
• Master logic skill
• Have at least level seven in three other skills (your choice)
• Follow a schedule every day; spontaneity is not your strong suit
• Get married as an adult to someone who shares at least one of your traits and is in the same career as you.
• Live in an expensive house (200,000 simoleons or more) by the time you’re an adult
• Surround yourself only with other snobby people
• Buy an expensive item every Wednesday. (Perhaps even start a collection of expensive artwork or sculptures and showcase them somewhere in your house. Feel free to get creative with it.)

Oh wow, we’ve made it to the end of the challenge! I hope you enjoyed. Feel free to show me pictures or update me on your playthrough on this if you’d like (tumblr: autumnalpixels.tumblr.com or on twitter: @absoluteking8)

If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to tell me and I’ll take them into consideration. <3

Question: On the City Living jobs, do you do the 'at home' tasks or actually go to work? Is the first child born the heir or the last? Just trying to get facts straight, looks very interesting. I might do this later on.

Hello! You can choose to stay at home or go to work, totally up to you. And the heir will be chosen however you want; use Pinstar's heir rules to pick your heir. Hope you enjoy the challenge if you decide to do it!
