what you need to stop talking about
Zodiac, Self

New subject, please.

There are some topics that we can’t shut up about. It could be something from your past, a wrongdoing that you felt powerless to do anything about as a child, so now that you’re an adult you’re still trying to process it. But everyone around you is tired of hearing about it.

Are there things in your life that get repeated no matter how hard you try to stop them?

An example might be that your mail person always leaves your packages right out in the open so that they’re easily seen by potential thieves. You’ve tried talking to your mail person directly and they seem to understand, and yet they continue to do what you’ve asked them not to do.

Maybe there are characteristics that someone close to you has that are starting to annoy you. You’ve gone as far as you can without hurting them but you know if you pursue the topic any longer, they’re going to get hurt. So instead, you whine about it to everybody within earshot.

Sometimes we just want to rant until we get it out of our system. It’s easy to go on and on about things that bug you, that annoy you, and that you think are unfair. It may not be the best way to get the attention you’re craving but it works.

These things that we can’t stop talking about often mask some real problems we have but don’t feel comfortable sharing, so we talk about the other thing until even we notice how boring we’re being. However, sometimes you just need to get over it and move on, for the sanity of everyone involved.

Astrology knows that we’ve all got issues and that sometimes we get tired of hearing about yours. Here's what you need to stop talking about, based on your zodiac sign.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You need to stop going on and on about winning. We get it, winning is very important to you. But here's the thing: your extreme competitiveness is obnoxious and it seems to make you into a jerk sometimes. You're a bad winner because you don't care if you upset people or even make them cry, as long as you get that win. Go you! Now quiet down.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

You need to shut up about being right all the time. It's not as if it ever comes into question with you anyway. Even when you're not right, you'd never admit it. It's bad manners to constantly point out to people that you were right and they were wrong. Just gloat silently, if you please.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You need to stop giving advice, especially to people who didn't ask you for any. You are great at making decisions and you've picked up some tricks for how to live a successful life, but you're not an expert in every field. You don't know everything and sometimes your two cents isn't helpful, it's distracting and even wrong.

You need to stop talking about the one that broke your heart. We're sorry that you had to go through such pain but it's now been a while and you're still whining about it. If you don't stop, we're going to see why they needed to get away from you — probably so they wouldn't have to hear you agonize over some other past relationship. It's time to move on.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

You need to shut up about yourself. You have many talents but probably the most unrecognized talent that you have is the ability to make it all about you. You're already getting tons of attention just for being amazing, so why do you need more? The more you say how incredible you are and how you can't walk two steps without someone praising you, the less spectacular you start to seem. You don't have to point out how awesome you are, we know already.

You need to stop talking to everyone as if they couldn't possibly grasp the concepts of which you speak. We already know you're a know-it-all, you don't have to be condescending about it. You're super-smart — we get it.

You need to stop talking about if you made the right decision. There are times when you just have to decide and move on. You deliberate, take too much time deciding, and then when you're done, you regret the decision you ended up making. Move on. Next time you'll get the lasagna or the brown shoes — no one cares and we're sick of hearing about it.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

You need to shut up about how so-and-so did you wrong and how one day you're going to exact your revenge on them. You seem to think holding on to grudges and making revenge plans makes you powerful, but it doesn't. It makes you seem out of control, and not in a good way. Let go of those grudges and dismantle that scoreboard of slights you've been keeping. All that negativity is getting in the way of your happiness.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You need to stop talking about what a giving person you are and how selfless you can be. If you really were only concerned with helping people, you probably would keep it to yourself instead of pointing it out to people how much you do for them. You're actually not that magnanimous, you have your own motivations for doing for others.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You need to shut up about how morally superior you are compared to everyone else. Look, you're no saint and while it's admirable that you have such a strong moral code and that you try to behave in a kind and honorable manner, you still sometimes fail. You're not perfectly pious all the time. When you act as if butter wouldn't melt in your mouth, people will start to hope for your eventual comeuppance.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

You need to be quiet about how stupid everyone is around you at work. Yes, you're a genius and there's no one smarter in the room and hopefully, one day, you'll get the recognition that you deserve. However, that raise or promotion isn't going to come any faster if you continue putting down your co-workers to everyone else in your life.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

You need to stop talking about your dreams, not your goals. That's great that you get so much insight and inspiration from your dreams but honestly, it's extremely boring to listen to other people drone on about something that they saw when they were asleep. Tell your dreams to your therapist, they may get something out of them; for the rest of us, please refrain from going into mind-numbing detail about that dream you had with Ryan Gosling.
