Dangerous when wet.
One of the great things about starting a new relationship is discovering the good, the bad and everything in between about your partner and feeling comfortable enough to show your real self to them.
All of us are a mix of great qualities and some more challenging characteristics. You might burst into tears every time you see a baby chick or perhaps you feel like throwing up even if you just hear the word vomit.
We're all quirky beings and it's the unusual things about us that make us human, but sometimes we feel shy about revealing our true, screwed-up selves to a new partner. We want to know that they're fully committed before we show them how we like to sleep backward in the bed or how we need to wash our hands way more often than they need to be washed.
When the truth comes out about our weirdnesses, it's a relief that we don't have to hide them or pretend to be more normal than we are.
We wish that we could just blurt it out or that we could come with a warning label of our quirks and triggers. You must wonder if we did come with cautionary labels, would people believe them and would it change their actions?
How many times have you looked back over a failed relationship and could clearly see there were numerous red flags that you choose to ignore? What about when you're in the relationship and you notice a red flag, and you just don't take any action, hoping it will work itself out?
There are some times when we need to know what we're getting into with a person and this is where astrology comes in. The stars can give us a heads-up on what we know about a person, the unusual behaviors and emotions they might exhibit, and the worst traits of those individuals.
Here's what your warning label should say, according to your zodiac sign.
Warning: Aries people can blow up when you're least expecting it. The can be hot-headed, irrational, impatient, and easily angered. Try to wait it out as they'll get over it as quickly as it started. Once this tantrum is over, handle the Aries gently and show them that it takes more than a temper tantrum to scare you away.
Warning: When a Taurus digs their heels in, they won't budge. Taurus can be very stubborn and they're not great at compromise. If they think they're right about something, it's practically impossible to get them to change their mind. Do not try to out-stubborn them; the best thing to do is to give in or you'll both be stuck there for what will seem like an eternity. Choose your battles carefully when you're dealing with a Taurus.
Warning: Geminis can be blunt. You'd think that a sign that was so comfortable with talking and socializing would be conversationally diplomatic, but they're not. Geminis tend to blurt things out, especially things like criticism; most of them also have zero tact. The best defense against Gemini bluntness is to not take personally — they're not trying to hurt you, they just have no verbal impulse control.
Warning: Cancers can go from feeling happy to mad at the world in the blink of an eye. The Cancer mood swing is legendary and makes sense as they are very sensitive to their own emotions. The best way to handle a Cancer's moodiness is to listen to them, and show them that you're there for them and that you truly care about them. It won't take long for them to swing back to a happier frame of mind.
Warning: In conversation, Leos will make it all about them. Leos don't mean to be conversational narcissists, but they get excited about their latest achievement and they can't wait to share it with you. The best way to handle this is to subtly insert yourself back into the conversation and show Leo that you're just as funny and fascinating as they are.
Warning: Virgos may beat themselves up emotionally. Virgos strive for perfection and there's nobody they're more critical of than themselves. The best thing you can do when a Virgo is being hard on themselves is to compliment and validate them.
Warning: Libras take forever to make a decision. They just want to make sure they take the best course of action. There are some decisions they can make quickly, but if they're not sure about the importance, they can add time on just deciding if a decision has merit or not. When a Libra is being indecisive, just realize that it's their process. If you have some sure-fire arguments that will help them come to a decision faster, then tell them.
Warning: Scorpios can become consumed by someone or something they're passionate about. Scorpios can be a little scary when they get all intense, and the best thing to do is to talk to them and let them express their passion in healthy ways — less obsessive actions and more positive expressions.
Warning: Sagittarius may take off at a moment's notice. Sagittarius can't help it when they feel boxed in, or even when they don't they need to get some place and meet people who are new to them. They thrive on change and variety, and the best way to counter their impetus spirit is to give them the freedom to leave and travel knowing that they have someone to come back to.
Warning: Capricorn may transform into a workaholic. Capricorns love to work, make money and plan for the future, but sometimes they get carried away and work too hard and too long. Encourage the Capricorn to take a break and to relax. Remind them that someone who's overtired isn't as productive as someone who is well-rested and relaxed.
Warning: Aquarius may turn cold when exposed to too much emotion. Aquarius individuals are very intellectual and enjoy other people, they just don't enjoy a show of emotions. You're never going to make them comfortable enough to share every emotion they feel, but encourage them to express the smaller feelings they have. If they can get a better handle on their own feelings, they may start to get better with other people's.
Warning: Pisces may feel that they're being taken for granted. Pisces spend so much time caring for other people and animals that sometimes they feel as if they're being under-appreciated. Let them know that they do matter by giving them your complete attention, and listen to them without interrupting and without trying to solve their problems for them.
