Maybe you're born with it.
We ALL have some pretty bad qualities — or at least non-flattering ones. Nobody said we'd come out the womb being perfect, but if you're a person who cares about the way you conduct yourself when participating in the world, then it's safe to say you at least TRY to be the best version of yourself.
If you naturally possess certain qualities or have certain things about yourself that you just can't seem to shake, it's not your fault. But even so, it becomes your fault if you don't do anything about it.
The worst thing you can do is blind yourself to the things about you that need improvement. Hey, we all could use a change (or five). It's fine.
Each Zodiac sign has really great qualities that probably help a great deal to describe you, but don't be fooled. They have a lot of baggage that you might want to shift your focus on. Don't forget about the downfalls of your sign, because they describe you just as much as the good stuff.
Here are 12 qualities about your zodiac signs that you could totally work on improving, along with a little advice on how to fix it. Or, at the very least, how to pay better attention to it.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Although an Aries is a courageous and determined person who lets little to NOTHING stand in the way of her goal, her impatience tends to get the best of her. Suddenly, she becomes impulsive, aggressive and even short-tempered if anything goes array.
She's the girl to give her best friend the BEST advice on how to land the boy, but if someone on the outside tampers with her vision, she'll go haywire and start doing impulsive things that will make the boy she's interested in extremely turned off. Her intentions may be in the right place initially, but she just doesn't know when to give it up!
My advice? give it a rest, girl. If you feel you're getting ahead of yourself, you probably are. Just stop right there in your tracks and reevaluate the situation.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
A Taurus is extremely overprotective of the people she loves. Although most of the time she is practical and quite reliable, don't let her get her hands on too much material things.
She tends to lose her focus easily and her priorities become an absolute mess/close to non existent. With this in mind, she becomes completely uncompromising and unwilling to look at herself in the mirror because it seems she might notice the botox, the jewelry and the money are not actually what she wants, but she's WAAAAY too stubborn to let them go.
My suggestion? Force yourself to look in that mirror, Taurus. As The Fray once said, "sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same..."
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
A Gemini is always the life of the party, mainly due to her witty nature and sarcastic remarks. However, as cool as she might initially seem, don't be fooled. She'll get so deep in her game and too into her zone, that she'll often find herself in situations that she cannot get out of.
She'll become quite indecisive, unclear and nervous. She hates being alone, so leaving her alone won't be the best idea. Most of the time you'll have to talk her back into her senses.
My advice: take a chill pill and enjoy your time as it is - alone OR with your friends. Life isn't always one big party.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Ah, Cancer. She's quite the sensitive, over analytical and over protective one, isn't she? Well, this has a lot of benefits but let's focus on her ultimate weaknesses.
Besides the fact that she's such a deep thinker (most of the time, to a fault) this may alter her mood, no matter what environment she's in. She could be at the most poppin' party and still sit in the corner crying because when she gets stuck in her own head, there's little to no escape, EVER.
In turn, this will probably ruin YOUR mood and you might question why you ever invite her to parties.
Well, my advice? STOP, Cancer. Get out of your head and stop making up stories that aren't real! Live in the moment! Focus on the present! Trust me, once you get outside of yourself, it ain't that bad out there in the real world!
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
A Leo gal's confidence is NOT one to messed with. This is probably the greatest thing about her, but watch out, because she can go from zero to one hundred REAL quick. This quality can quickly become the WORST thing about her, too.
A Leo's confidence is overbearing that it's almost impossible to talk her out of whatever she's thinking. Once her mind is set, her mind is set, well, probably forever. Don't even bother fighting with her, she'll stay in her corner for as long as her stubbornness will keep her there.
If this is seriously becoming a problem for you, I advise you to count to ten, take three deep breaths, and force yourself to shift your thinking. You're turning people away and there starting to reevaluate why they even hang with you! Be mindful of your actions. You don't want to lose any more people.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
A Virgo's soul isn't a bad one. After all, she'll be the first one to be by your side when you're down and will always keep a practical and objective mind when listening to your problems. However, be careful when sharing your life's story and/or issues with them.
She's very quick to judge you because she is also her own WORST enemy. She's extremely critical of herself and therefore, she'll be that quick to criticize you, too.
My advice? Be a better listener and remember that your way isn't the ONLY approach. Your answers are not always the end all be all, so have a more open mind when listening to others. Trust me, it'll pay off in the end and you will have much better and closer relationships.
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
She's extremely sophisticated and diplomatic when approaching pretty much anything in life. Although she'll be the first one to cooperate and was most likely (always) the line leader in elementary school, cough teachers pet cough, don't be that fooled. She's actually pretty insecure, which is why she avoids confrontation so much.
Her need to be liked by everyone becomes a bit of a turn off and you almost wonder why she feels this need to please total strangers.
Libra, stop worrying and start gaining the confidence to speak up for yourself and for your friends. If someone is mean, someone is mean and you really don't need to prove how good of a person you are to them.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Although a Scorpio's passion is a quality that's probably envied by some, it also means that she's an extreme who can fly off the handle rather quickly. With that said, she starts making so many scenarios in her mind to encourage the negative feeling she randomly had. She starts to distrust and can even become violent.
If you're at a party, she's the girl who drinks too much and will probably not remember what happened the next day. Trust me, she will not remember that cat fight she had with someone she would never have dared to talk to while sober.
Scorpio, if this is you, stop drinking, first of all. Second, reflect more on yourself and others around you. You need to remember that most of the time, although your intuition might be valid, your actions are not reasonable nor are they necessary.
Take it down, like, twenty notches. You want to keep your friends after all, don't you?
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
A Sagittarius' energy is off the wall! However, this often translates to irrational behavior.
A Sagittarius is the girl who'll say anything to get ahead and promises WAY more than she is able to deliver. She's kind of the opposite of sophisticated and diplomatic. She lives by her word vomit and often gets herself involved in drama more often than not.
She'll continue to say anything to get her out of trouble, yet she becomes the girl who cried wolf. Not only does nobody believe her, but the less and less credible she becomes.
S agittarius, STOP TALKING! lol Just kidding. You can talk, but only when it's at LEAST one of the three R's: rational, relevant and REAL. Stop dragging other people into the mess that YOU created.
Remember, HONESTY is always the best policy. It will get you far.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
A Capricorn is probably the 'mother goose' of your group. Although she's responsible, the master of self control and extremely independent, this can take a turn for the worst. She's kind of a know-it-all and can become quite condescending.
Similar to a Virgo, she's critical. However, she takes critical to a whole new, cynical level. She becomes quite pessimistic in her advice and insight. I mean, friends can only want to be around that so long, am I right?
Capricorn.....WATCH A DISNEY MOVIE! Or, fall in love! Smile! Have fun! You're pushing people away with your cynicism and know-it-all attitude. To be honest, you don't know it all! There's so much more to learn out there and you're depriving yourself of the kind of happiness you deserve.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
An Aquarius is unlike any other. She's truly an original soul, who let's her emotional expression take her over. However, her emotions tend to get the best of her. Especially when it comes to relationships.
She becomes uncompromising and extremely temperamental. Although her tantrums are an original piece of work, it's quite hard to be around her and have respect for someone who becomes so irrational.
Aquarius, girl, come on... you NEED to do some more self reflecting and realize that emotions are not RATIONAL. Although they may be valid and can be justified, it's safe to say they are not logical and without reason.
Start being a new kind of original and talk yourself out of feeling the way you do. Emotional expression is good, but in moderation.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Pisces has the opposite kind of approach to life. She trusts WAY too easily and similar to some other signs, has the desire to escape the reality she's in. Pisces, you're not alone, girlfriend.
However, you can't be both fearful to get to know people but at the same time too trusting. My advice is to first, pick one. Then, i'd say to maintain a healthy balance.
You're smart for being fearful to trust but then don't let your emotions get the best of you. Give pieces of yourself only when the person in question proves themselves. Remember, slow and steady ALWAYS wins the race.
