What You Want Vs. What You NEED (Based On Your Zodiac Sign)

Figure out what you REALLY need with a little help from the stars.

Zodiac Sign Astrology WeHeartIt

Decisions. Every day there's some new gadget, person, place, or adventure trying to get your attention.

Making decisions can be confusing enough without feeling bombarded by choices that are out of reach or out of control. When you think about things like happiness, money, security, friendship and love, you realize that there's little doubt that those items must go on the list.


But can you live without what you want? The career of your dreams — that trip you've been longing to take. It could be to start a family, and you've been putting it on hold because becoming a parent is a MAJOR decision. What do you do? Want what you want?

What do you do when want is such a deep longing that it really does feel like a need?


Well first, you might ask your friends. They listen and sometimes give you advice. You hear what they say, but sometimes you still feel stuck. These types of things change the course of a person's life!

So when they're not around (or when you're taking too long to figure things out for yourself), you have to find another source for the answers you need.

Perhaps a little light from your star sign is just the push you need to get you moving. Astrology can tell you a lot about yourself, you zodiac sign, and what you REALLY need to focus on in life, so read for yourself and see what the zodiac has to say about your sign's attitude towards want and REAL need. 


1Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Aries Zodiac Sign Want vs. NEED Astrology

Oh, Aries. The problem is never not knowing what you want. You always do. You don't worry too much about what you need either. Of all the star signs, no one can take care of you better than yourself. Your conflict of deciding what you want and need happens when the dirty word compromise comes into play.

You might have to learn how to sacrifice for the sake of others so that you get everything you think you deserve and more.

2Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus Zodiac Sign Want vs. NEED Astrology

Taurus, you are one stubborn sign, but hidden beneath that tough exterior is a giver who loves to give, give, and give some more. It's tough being you because you feel misunderstood.  You often feel like your needs aren't being met and you struggle with knowing what you want. Give others some clear boundaries.

Let people see that you have a soft side. Also, don't forget to remind yourself to tune in and listen to those signals. When you are feeling stubborn on an issue, it's not really that you aren't worried about not getting what you want. Really, for you, it's that you feel like your needs aren't being met.

4Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer Zodiac Sign Want vs. NEED Astrology

Sometimes being earthy and laid back has its disadvantages. Your determination is needed to decide what you want and need. What works best for you must appeal to your logical side. If it doesn't make sense, you think it's not something you should want. But sometimes happiness requires sacrifice and once in a while, it's okay to be uncomfortable with change.

Besides, no one can handle adversity better than you, Cancer.
