Come on over to the dark side...
Everyone loves to find their horoscope in their favorite magazine or online quiz. It's fun to read about what the stars have in store for you in a given week, whether your sign is in retrograde, or whether you should probably avoid going to work on the thirteenth and just stick to your couch that day instead.
It's interesting to read a possible map for your life and peer just a bit behind the curtain of the mysterious future. But while there are good aspects of your zodiac, there are also negative or "dark" aspects of it as well.
While your horoscope can predict things in your day-to-day life, it can also teach you about the negative aspects of your own personality; the parts of yourself that don't quite shine as well as the rest. The zodiac is all about balance, so while it tells you what traits you might be strong in, like being a good friend, it also lets you know what areas of your life you'll need to work on polishing a bit, like that materialism, for instance.
But having less positive sides to uncover in your own life isn't such a bad thing. You learn about the pros and cons of your zodiac birth sign, areas that you might be weak in, or even things that you totally falter at doing. You can also learn which signs you naturally jive with, and which ones you're more likely to fence elbows with.
Your destiny may be written in the stars, but so is the backside of that — the obstacles you'll face along your path to becoming the great person you were always meant to be. Learn which aspects of yourself you'll need to work on, and which are going to be stepping stones into getting you through weak moments for the rest of your life.
Want to learn about yourself and make those first steps to improvement? Then you'll have to look long and hard into the darkest parts of your personality, and learn the weaknesses you'll have to overcome along the way. Who are you, really? Only the stars can tell.
Aries tends to demand things impulsively and is the most impulsive of the bunch. If an idea isn't theirs, they really don't care about it and they tend to be immature.
Taurus is possessive, materialistic, and sometimes vain. They sometimes need to be forcefully taught the golden rule. They're stubborn and can be overly self-indulgent and lazy.
Gemini are like a few different personalities rolled into one. A real grab bag, if you will. You never know what you're going to get. They enjoy tons of different interests and tend to consider themselves the master of all of them.
Cancer is the crab for a reason. They're moody suns of guns. Cancer doesn't leave their comfort zone all that easily and they tend to be easily offended. Sorry, Cancer.
Leo tends to be charming and lovable, but they often charm and love themselves the most. They demand attention and will try to be the center of it at all times. For Leo, everything revolves around them.
Be careful when you're hanging out with a Virgo, because they tend to be much more judgmental than the other signs. They're perfectionists, so even so much as a crooked smile can set them off and have them gossiping.
Libra is indecisive. They spend a lot of time preparing and studying for every little thing. They're the kinds of people who stand in the grocery store with two bottles of ketchup, carefully examining the labels. God just pick a f*cking thing and move on.
Hell hath no fury like a Scorpio scorned. They're passionate, but tend to be manipulative and fiery. For them, bad moods are a baseline. Down is the only direction from there.
Sagittarians are well known for being blunt, and their bluntness borders on tasteless at times. They tend to be know-it-alls.
Capricorns are controllers. They don't really go with the flow. They often use people for their own benefit, and thrive on gossip and negativity.
Aquarius thinks they're so logical and smart, meaning they're quick to judge others. They spend a lot of time living in their own heads and seem detached. They often give good advice but almost never follow it.
Pisces lacks direction. They tend to be space cadets and accidentally aloof. They're supposed to be the oldest and wisest sign, but they tend to be gullible.
