Are you a head sign or a heart sign?

Are you heart-centered? Being heart-centered doesn’t mean that all your decisions are made from an emotional place, nor does it mean that you blindly follow your heart.

It’s not about pursuing every impulse or whim that you have and making unhealthy and unwise choices that may make you feel better for a short time but have long-lasting negative effects on your life.

Being heart-centered means being aware of what you want in life and focusing on making the decisions that aid those things in happening. It’s taking responsibility for your actions and your emotions, and making choices that support your core values, beliefs, and needs.

It’s not that you ignore your feelings, it’s just that you don’t let them control you. Let’s say that you’re disappointed that you didn’t get that job and think that the only way you’ll feel better is to buy a whole new wardrobe. If you’re heart-centered, you acknowledge the upset feelings you’re having but know that spending a lot of money you don’t have on new clothes ultimately won’t make you feel better; it may make you feel much worse, especially when you get your credit card bill.

You don’t pop off when you get angry without taking into consideration how your outburst may affect not just yourself but the people around you. Is it worth it to damage relationships just to let off some negative energy? Is there a way that you can feel better without an angry confrontation and without internalizing your feelings?

There are times when it’s better in the long-run to not react to something immediately, to wait before eating a dozen donuts or having a tantrum because you don’t think your partner is hearing you. When you’re heart-centered, you can identify the emotions that are fleeting, and by not letting them affect you in negative ways, you gain control of them and your life.

Here's how heart-centered you are, based on your zodiac sign.​

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Regrets? You've had a few but you never let them keep you down or stop you from taking action or pursuing a dream. Your ex may have cheated, but you're not sorry that you loved them. And even though you were fired from your job, you're confident that with the skills you learned, you'll get an even better job. When things end badly, you never give them the power to wreck your life in any way.

You follow your gut. You don't know why you feel or think the things you do, but when you trust those feelings, it always turns out to be a good thing. It's when you haven't trusted them that there's been trouble. You don't care if there's no logic or fact backing up those instincts, you just know that they're usually correct.

It doesn't take you long to consider someone a friend and to tell them all about you. It may make you vulnerable to spill your secrets to someone you barely know, but it doesn't make you an ass or weak. The best way to form a fast connection with someone is to open up to them.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You cry at almost anything from cute dogs on Instagram to that commercial with the old man and his absent family. If being sensitive and compassion are crimes, then arrest you right now. You practice empathy without even being aware of it. You're emotional, but you can't change who you are. You just think from your heart instead of your head.

It's not always obvious to your friends why you're drawn to certain people and, most of the time, you don't even have a good explanation for it. They might not be the hottest, the smartest, or even the funniest, there's just something about them you like. When there's a spark for you, you act on it and it's usually turned out well.

You're a hopeless romantic but even when you get burned, it still doesn't make you jaded or afraid to try again. You don't fool yourself and you go into every relationship with your eyes open but still hopeful that it will work out the way you want. You don't care if you're a sucker for flowers, candy, and romantic dinners, it's just who you are.

You take the way most people deal with emotions and dial it up a notch. There's no tepid for you as you tend to be deeply emotional. When you love, you love intensely, and when you hate or feel wronged, you'll stop at nothing to exact revenge. You are extremely heart-centered because you don't feel anything lightly and when you act out of emotion, you're fully in control of your actions.

You tend to believe in signs and you follow them to mixed results. You see a sign of a heart in a water stain and you're convinced that the Universe is reaffirming your belief in love. It may be magical realism but it helps you cope with a sometimes heartless world.

You definitely know the difference between right and wrong and you strive to do the right thing. Your brain may tell you that you that it's OK to do something half-assed, but you wouldn't feel good about it. You couldn't stand the guilt if someone found out you were lying, cheating or not doing your best. You take pride in everything you do and accomplish.

You seem like you're a loner but the truth is you care more about other people than you do yourself, and your first priority is making sure that the people you love are taken care of and that they're happy. You come a close second to everybody else in your life. You're a people person with a big caring heart.

You tend not to think things through and take giant leaps of faith. This is why people take advantage of you again and again and it takes a lot for you to cut them out of your life. If you feel that something or someone will make you happy, then you make it happen. The challenge is not beating yourself up when those leaps of faith end up being a jump into the hellhole.
