Zodiac, Self

The stars know how you're going to fail.

No matter how hard we try, we always mess up at some point. Life isn’t perfect and is made up of awkwardness, mistakes, and misfires. This is the deal we strike to live — we’ll screw up sometimes.

Some of the mistakes we make are so small that they’re barely noticed, while others are so huge that they’re impossible to miss. It can be just as challenging to recover from the tiny fails as it is to rebound from the large ones.


The key is to keep moving forward and learn from our mistakes rather than letting them destroy us.

Hopefully, we don’t make the same mistakes repeatedly, but we often do. History is known to repeat itself and the same goes for the errors in judgment or stupid actions we sometimes do. Is it gullibility that causes us to believe that this time will be different, or is it that we just ignore the signs of disaster that are around us?

The funny thing is that we continue to make mistakes no matter how old we get. Age may equal wisdom but it doesn’t earn you a mistake-proof life.

Besides learning from the mistakes we make, our actions, good and bad, not only affect us but often affect other people. We don’t want to cause other people pain nor do we want to get hurt ourselves, but it’s often unavoidable.


No matter how careful you think you are, you’re still going to do something that will hurt you and break your heart. You're still going to do something that will mess up your life.

As always, astrology is here to help you find out what kind of things you’ll do that will break your heart and mess up your life based on your zodiac sign. Consider this a warning that even though you don’t want to get hurt, it may already be in the stars that you will.

Because you tend to be hot-headed and impulsive (sometimes in a good way, sometimes not), you're going to mess up your on again/off again relationship. It's really challenging to have to be the butt of your anger and it's doubly hard when you don't think before you speak. You take so many risks that it feels as if you're not even taking anybody's concerns seriously.

You're going to mess up a relationship because you just won't give an inch.

Compromise and giving in doesn't make you weak, it makes you easier to live/work with.

You're going to find that one person who doesn't think you're all that and latch onto them. You think that if they just get to know the real you, they'll love you like everybody else. Stop spending your time and energy trying to make someone like you. Be grateful that there are so many people who adore you and think you're amazing.

Your overly critical nature is going to wreck not only your own self-esteem but will damage someone who is close to you. Beauty is in imperfection, so try to embrace your flaws and failures and those in other people. No one likes being held up to impossible standards.

You tend to stay away from conflict but you can't stand injustice, so it's not surprising when those two things counterbalance each other. You're going to go too far in either direction and it's going to lead to a hit to your self-esteem, or it will be the tip of a whole lot of conflict and animosity. You may hope for a harmonious life but you're not going to get it.

You have difficulty dealing with emotions — both yours and other people's — and it's going to get you in trouble. You can't just shut down when your partner is having a bad day, you need to show them that you're there for them. When you remain aloof and indifferent, it's going to cause real problems in your relationship.
