Could you be putting too much thought into things?

Are you an overthinker? Do you second guess yourself on every decision that you make and does your second guessing sometimes lead to decision-regret?

We all have moments where we overanalyze a situation. Perhaps you can’t stop thinking about everything you did and said in that job interview or maybe you’re focused on what the possible reason could have been for that breakup that took you by surprise.

It’s difficult to make an immediate decision and to not wonder if perhaps you made that decision too quickly and that you didn't consider everything you should have before you acted on it. If you’re not completely on board with an action you took, you may consult your horoscope because you find yourself thinking about it for days, months, and even years. Why did you break up with your partner, sell your house, or not invest in that stock?

If decision-making doesn't come easily for you, you may find yourself taking forever to decide and then afterward not being satisfied with your decision. You wonder if you really made the best decision. Were there options that you should have considered that you missed?

It's good to think about things in your life and ruminate, but at some point, you need to let things go. You can’t focus on a mistake you made that you can never undo or beat yourself up for not taking advantage of an opportunity when you should have.

You may give so much weight to your thoughts and think about things and issues so much that it can stop you from taking any kind of action. Considering your options and looking at a situation is a good thing... unless it stops you in your tracks because once stopped, you tend to dig your heels in and become completely immovable.

You're an emotional overthinker. You think about past relationships a lot — how magical they were, how horrible the breakup was, and what you should have done differently. Sometimes all that thinking about the past can block you from progressing and creating a better future. Try not to get stuck in the past; learn from it but move on.

You are definitely one of the zodiac signs that overthink the most. There isn't anything that you haven't studied from every angle and haven't figured out the possibilities and the probabilities. You need to research every problem and every outcome. Since you're extremely self-critical, you think about everything that you do and say before and after you do and say them. When you can't solve a problem, you'll go back to the beginning and retrace the steps, overanalyzing all of them.

You wish you could just take a leap but you've got to consider all repercussions first.

The good news is that your overthinking doesn't prevent you from doing what you're going to do; the bad news is that you overthink a lot. You can get obsessed with people, with the environment, the world, and everything else. You have no problem seeking revenge on someone who did you wrong and that takes planning... the kind of planning that takes a ton of thinking.
