Trust your Zodiac sign to make you a better person.

Everyone has weaknesses, just like they have strengths. And just like those strengths, weaknesses make person who they are.

You can either let your weaknesses take over your life, or you can learn how to power through them and become the person you've always wanted to be. Unfortunately, though, you don't always realize that your weaknesses don't just affect your own life, but they also affect those around you.

When you let your downfalls take over, they can put a strain on your relationships, experiences, and even your future. However, it isn't always easy for others to tell you that you are being a total jerk.

You always want to think that your friends and your family have your best interest at heart, but when it feels like they are turning their backs on you or telling you what they REALLY think of you, it can make you feel like you aren't as great as you thought you were.

If there's one piece of advice that you should always remember, it's that the more your friends and family are honest with you, the more they care.


If they didn't care what you thought about yourself for them they wouldn't bring it up. Think of it this way: you already know that you are a BAMF, so it's time that you start acting like it. You have to face your fears, even when you don't want to.

But the sooner you know what your weaknesses are, the sooner you can fix them.

If you know how your Zodiac sign acts, then you can make better choices that'll not only make you happy, but also make your friends and family happy, too. Don't let a few misgivings stop you from being the person you are because trust me, it isn't worth losing the important parts of your life because you were too worried about the not-so-important ones.

Check below to see what your sign should STOP doing right away and how you can change for the better.

ARIES (Mar 21 - Apr 19)
Zodiac Astrology Aries Astrological Sign

Aries is always on the go, which means they don't always have the greatest capacity for patience. They can be moody and short-tempered, and can sometimes take it out on their closest friends.

You need to remember that not everyone operates the way you do, which means it is important to think before you speak. If you don't keep your emotions in check, you could end up ruining some of the best relationships in your life. Think about how others would feel in your situation before losing your temper.

TAURUS (Apr 20 - May 20)
Zodiac Sign Astrology Taurus Astrological Sign

Like the bull, Taurus can be very stubborn and uncompromising. Whether they are defending themselves in an argument or simply not giving up on something they want, their stubborn nature can either be very fearless or very annoying.

You don't always like change, but if you continue to let your stubborn attitude get the better of you, you could end up changing the dynamic of your relationships and even give your significant other a reason to leave. Consider how you and your partner can negotiate on important topics before breaking up over something silly.

Nervousness can get to us all, but Gemini takes the cake when it comes to letting it overcome their work. Gemini is known for being able to adapt to any situation, which is why they shouldn't let a little fear stand in their way.

You are someone who loves spending time with others, but when nervousness strikes, it can make you want to hole up for the rest of the day. Letting that fear make the decisions in your life can mean that you miss out on some of the greatest moments in life. There is nothing wrong with a little consistency in life and it might help assuage some of the nervous feelings you get when trying something new.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)
Zodiac Astrology Cancer Astrological Sign

There should be no reason for someone as open-hearted and in touch with their emotions as you to let insecurities take over.

If you continue to let your insecurities run your life, you will end up missing out on some of the greatest experiences. Don't let the opinions of others dictate how you live. Try to pinpoint what makes you feel this way and show your insecurities who's boss before you stop caring about what's most important in your life.

LEO (July 23 - Aug 22)
Zodiac Astrology Leo Astrological Sign

Being a go-getter means that opportunity is more likely to fall into your lap. Leo is highly persuasive and imaginative, which means that they are able to charm their way to success. However, their lazy nature often gets in the way and they can end up sabotaging their own chances for something amazing.

Get off your booty every once in a while and show the world that there IS something special about you. Whether your laziness stems from uncertainty that you won't be good at something or worry about trying something new, if you don't make an effort, you'll end up staying exactly where you are for the rest of your life.

VIRGO (Aug 23 - Sep 22)
Astrological Sign Zodiac Astrology Virgo

Virgo has very high expectations for themselves and those around them, which can be both impressive and detrimental. High expectations can lead to being overly critical of their work or self, which for Virgo is completely unnecessary.

You already know how awesome you are, so there should be no reason for you to beat yourself up over nothing. Don't let your perfectionist side stop you from enjoying life for what it really is: not always perfect. Think about letting loose every once in a while and understand that not everything has to be criticized for it to be great. You might end up losing focus if you focus too much on the little details.

LIBRA (Sept 23 - Oct 22)
Zodiac Astrology Libra Astrological Sign

Feeling sorry for yourself will get you nowhere, but that fact is sometimes lost on Libra. Instead of facing their fears head on, they would much rather pout until things go their way.

You can be so cooperative and kind to others, so there should be no reason for you not to feel the same about yourself. Instead of having a pity party whenever things don't turn out in your favor, think about all the great things you have in life, including yourself. Take care of yourself first before you lose out on what's really important to you.

SCORPIO (Oct 23 - Nov 21)
Zodiac Astrology Scorpio Astrological Sign

Passion comes in many forms and Scorpio proves that very well. While their passion can be invigorating and admirable, it can also turn sour very quickly.

A distrusting and jealous nature will only make relationships worse for you. Instead of letting your emotions get the better of you, think about how your significant other or your coworker would feel if they were in your position. You might just gain some much-needed insight.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 - Dec 19)
Astrological Sign Zodiac Astrology Sagittarius

Sagittarius values their freedom above all else and hates to feel like they are being confined in any situation, whether that means a relationship or at home. If they ever feel like they are being backed into a wall, Sagittarius will sometimes say just about anything to make the other person trust them more.

You might mean well, but you should remember that there are consequences for everything. Your idealistic outlook on life can get you into trouble, which can lead to making you look like someone very untrustworthy. Start by being more truthful; even if it doesn't feel like much of an effort at first, you will see what a difference just being yourself will make to those in your life.

CAPRICORN (Dec 20 - Jan 19)
Zodiac Astrology Capricorn Astrological Sign

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 18)
Zodiac Astrology Aquarius Astrological Sign

Aquarius has the capacity for emotional expression, but showing raw emotion is a very foreign concept to them. Instead of letting their guard down, they would rather be aloof and close themselves off to others.

Whether you know it or not, your inability to open up to others is sabotaging your relationships. Just because you want to get closer to others doesn't mean they know that; they're not mind-readers. Instead of closing up every time you get close to someone, practice letting your guard down, even if it seems impossible. You'll end up bringing more people into your life.

PISCES (Feb 19 - Mar 20)
Zodiac Astrology Pisces Astrological Sign

Pisces knows how to play the victim very well and that can get them into trouble if they are not careful. They can be overly trusting and end up getting hurt when others try to take advantage of them.

You are already so compassionate and generous, but sometimes your love of helping others shows them that you are willing to take the fall for anything. Practice saying no without feeling bad about it; the more you trust in your ability to be strong-willed, the less people will try to take advantage of your kind nature.
