The signs and their issues.

Hey, we've all got issues.

We all have issues; some of us have many. Issues are things that consistently bother us. You might be having problems with your supervisor at work, or maybe the last few people that you dated were jerks.

Are you constantly having problems with your car, where you get one thing fixed only to have another thing immediately break down? Maybe it's your health; you'll get over a cold, only to suddenly have a rash that you've never had before, so that it seems that something is always going wrong with your body.

Our issues are those things that we constantly have to address, and when we try to ignore them, they just hit us further down the line. We see therapists, doctors, psychics, counselors, hypnotherapists — anybody who will help us with our issues.

Sometimes we are blind to our issues and don't even recognize that we seem to have a consistent problem with our emotions (anger issues) or that we have problems getting close to someone (trust issues). Life can appear to be a series of repairs that need to be fixed with ourselves. Once something is fixed, something else breaks down and we start to wonder if there will ever be a time where everything is as it should be.

When we acknowledge our issues, we are better able to take away their power from our lives, and it can give us a greater knowledge about ourselves.

Astrology is often helpful when trying to gain greater insight about ourselves. When we look at the personalities, characteristics, and behaviors of individuals born under certain zodiac signs, we get clues of our own behaviors.

While not every person born under the same sign is exactly alike, there are enough generalities that do seem to be true. Here are the signs and their issues.

Leos are awesome and they know it. In fact, they have a tendency to be self-centered and pompous.

It's a weird dichotomy how they can be so full of themselves and yet so convinced that they're pieces of sh*t at the same time.
