why you're complicated
Zodiac, Self

You'll never be boring.

Here’s the thing that we know about people: they’re complicated and difficult to figure out. It takes a long time to thoroughly get to know someone and even then, you don’t know everything about them.

We have many different sides to our personalities and sometimes those sides are in direct opposition to each other. Every personality trait we have, there’s another conflicting personality trait.


If you think of characters in a play, movie, or novel, you want them to be three-dimensional, to have things about them that are surprising and not predictable. Think of the hard-drinking motorcycle dude who loves baking or the prim librarian who has a kinky side. You wouldn’t want to read about someone who was every cliché, such as the preacher who was pious and followed the bible exactly — chances are that they wouldn’t keep your interest for long.

Real people are often more complex than their fictional counterparts because there’s often no rhyme or reason to the things that they do or how they are.

Humans aren’t ever just one way. We can be difficult, not just to other people but to ourselves. How often have you done or said something that shocked not only the people around you but stunned you too?

We can’t know all our motivations, and when we do, we may not know where they came from. In order to peacefully exist with ourselves, we must accept and learn how to live with the unexpected, inappropriate, out-of-left-field things that we do or say. We need to be able to identify our conflicting personality traits and learn how to live with them.


Even a seemingly dull person probably has all kinds of surprising characteristics about them, and if you try to get to know them and find out what makes them who they are, you might find that they’re much more interesting than you ever suspected.

Hopefully, people will look past the surface and dig deep to see what makes you the complex and fascinating person that you are. You may be complicated but getting to know you is so worth it.

Here's why you're complicated, according to your zodiac sign.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You're wicked smart but you don't think things through before you do them. You get impatient and would rather get lost in the moment than consider what could go wrong. It makes you impulsive to the point where you can be dangerous to yourself. Just do some research the next you decide to go on a big adventure and remember that forewarned is forearmed; if you know what can go wrong, you'll be better able to handle it (and have a better time).

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

You desperately want close relationships but it's very difficult for you to trust anyone, so you keep them at arm's length. Then if someone pisses you off, they're almost immediately dead to you. You can't have people practically kill themselves to get you to trust them only to be banished when they make a mistake. Try to be more flexible and tolerant of other people.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You want to be friends with everybody in theory, but in practice, you can't accept some of the major differences between you and the other person. You want to be able to match up well with a potential friend or partner and when that fails to happen, you tend to keep them at a distance. Try to celebrate those differences instead of trying to get them to conform to what you expect in a friend.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You're great in the early stages of a relationship, but once reality sets in, the romance loses its luster for you. One minute you're head over heels in love, and the next, you're getting bored with the whole thing. You need to throttle your emotions back and take your time getting to know someone, that way the flame won't go out but will continue to burn.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

You're generous and warm one minute and the next you're being bossy, patronizing, and condescending. When you give but don't get what you expect back, you don't react well. Life isn't always fair or quid pro quo. Try to be giving without expectations or without wanting something in return. Your generosity will probably come back to you in ways that are unexpected.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You want to be easy-going and not get upset when things don't happen the way you want them to, but you tend to overthink everything. When you're paying too much attention to the small details, you can get lost. You beat yourself up when you fail as it contradicts the image you have of yourself. No one expects you to kill it every time and even if you fail, you'll still be loved.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

You have great ideas and you talk a good game, but when it comes to actually doing the work, you fall short. Buried somewhere in your brain is the thought that if you don't try, you can't fail. You have perfectionism issues which no one can see because you cover it up and seem so laid back. You'd rather be thought of as lazy rather than untalented.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Everyone admires your strength and passion, but it's terrifying when those qualities are used against them. You love passionately but if you think that you've been betrayed in any way or lied to, you turn that energy to seeking vengeance. You're not one to let things go; you're one for emotional retaliation. You need to channel that powerful energy to more positive things like sports or the arts, rather than plotting revenge.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You're an optimist unless you perceive some kind of wrong doing that has happened against you. You take everything way too personally. Sometimes the waiter didn't hear you order fries but it wasn't that they were trying to mess with you. The world doesn't revolve around you and the sooner you stop thinking that it does, the sooner you'll feel happier.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You believe in your own myth and will do whatever you can to keep it in place. You're naturally hardworking and dependable, but you don't have to be that way all the time. It's okay to let loose every now and then; it won't make you less reliable and credible, it will make you happier and more well-rounded.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

You want to be independent, do what you want whenever and however you want, and you want to be in a stable relationship. You can't always have your way; you have to make some concessions from time to time. Compromise is your friend. Not everybody has your wanderlust but that doesn't mean you're not compatible in other ways.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

You're very trusting; in fact, too trusting at times. You're easily led astray because you tend to be somewhat weak-willed. You want to be liked and if that means being taken advantage of, then so be it. You have a lot to offer people but you don't need to just completely fold when they need something from you. Stand up to unreasonable requests and protect yourself. At the end of the day, the thing that should matter the most is your own self-esteem.
