Shine some light on that dark side.

Do you ever wonder what your dark side looks like? Well, you do have some darkness in you, whether you know it or not. OK, so maybe it’s not an entire 50 percent side; perhaps you only have about a fourth of your personality that’s dark, but no one is 100 percent light and good.

We all have elements of dark and light and everything in between as far as our personalities go. Even if you were the standard comic book villain, you’d still have good qualities; in fact, it’s the mix of good and bad that make characters and people interesting.

Hopefully, you have more light and good in you than a completely dark and angry soul. 

When you look back on the things you’ve done and the actions you’ve taken throughout your life, you’d probably find some shining moments of kindness and love, but sprinkled through those positive things would be some more negative actions.


We’re not always conscious when we’re doing something dark and only realize it after the fact which can make it a little easier to take. If you’re fully aware that you’re doing something that’s going to affect a negative change and could possibly end up hurting someone, that just makes it worse.

Sometimes we only inflict our dark tendencies on ourselves, and we do things that we know are wrong and hurtful but we do them anyway. We don’t protect ourselves from our worst instincts.

But if we want to get rid of our behaviors that hurt ourselves and others, we need to be fully aware of what they might be, and astrology can help. The stars know which of the zodiac signs have more of a dark soul than the others, and they know what your dark side is like.

It’s good for us to recognize all the parts of our personality and to know how much darkness is buried deep within us. So, how much of a dark side do you have?

Leo, you don't have much of a dark side, which is a relief as you're often a leader and have the ability and influence to lead others to commit acts of darkness if you wanted them to. So, no, you'll stay positive and happy and ignore any darkness that you may have buried deep inside your soul.

You're so much like the scale that represents you, as one moment you are light and positive and the next you are plunged into the darkest of despair. Libra tries to be even and balanced, but when you hold down your feelings pretending that everything is great, that only makes the negative feelings you aren't expressing more extreme.

There's no way around it but, yes, Scorpio definitely has a dark side and all somebody has to do to see it in its full force is to betray, hurt, or lie to you. You're a big believer in revenge and for teaching others a lesson they'll never forget. You're a master at vengeance and holding a grudge. You're not one to let it go and believe that everyone must pay if they owe you a debt of some kind.

Sagittarius, you're too naturally optimistic to have much of a dark side. If there's even a whiff of something that might bring you down, you just make a change or take off for parts unknown. You don't even want to visit the dark side.

Aquarius is quirky and unorthodox but not especially dark, though some may see your aloofness as a bit dark... but you don't care. You're going to do what you want to do and follow your own path. If people want to see you as some kind of mystery, that's OK, but you're not going to let it affect your mood or your disposition in any way.

You don't live in the darkness but Pisces can travel there when they are upset and/or feel betrayed. The amazing thing is what you can create when you're in a dark place — that's what's truly remarkable: the fact that you can use darkness and negativity as inspiration and motivation.
