How Likely You Are To Learn From Your Mistakes, According To Your Zodiac Sign

The zodiac signs ranked most to least likely to learn from their (totally inevitable) mistakes.

Zodiac Signs Learn From Your Mistakes WeHeartIt

We as humans don’t ALWAYS have a lot in common. When we look at each individual’s unique traits and characteristics, even in astrology, there are more than a handful of differences between all of us.

No two people are exactly the same. But, one thing we DO all have in common; however is the fact that we make mistakes no matter what zodiac sign we are born into.


Not one person on this earth is completely perfect to the point where they never, ever mess up. Its inevitable, but not uncommon (in any sense of the word). 

Sometimes we read about it in our horoscope with a warning to be careful. 

A mistake can happen at work: maybe you forgot to put a report in, or messed up an order or forgot to do that very important task your boss kept emailing you about.

It can happen in relationships: Maybe you were insensitive to a friend or picked a fight with a spouse or mate.


It can happen in life in general: you forget to pay a bill or you break something expensive and irreplaceable. The point is mistakes are impossible to avoid

No matter how big or small, or what the mistake is, the only thing that matters is if we learn from them. If we do not learn from our mistakes we are more inclined to make them again.


That's just a slippery slope and it might be hard to break free from.

It’s important to be self aware and realize that you do have the ability to change the mistakes you’ve made just by taking the time to realize a way to avoid them in the future.

Aries can go a bit of both ways when it comes to learning from their mistakes. On one hand an Aries is very headstrong and believes their actions are always right and just.

12. Leo (July 23- August 22)


Leos are the least likely to learn from their mistakes. Being a vain and stubborn sign is what normally gets in their way.

They will not listen to any advice or input from anyone else even if they know it’s the truth. They have the ability to mold situations in their minds to benefit them and twist the truth to meet their vanity.

A Leo must be willing to admit they are not perfect if they want to be able to officially learn and move on from their mistakes. It can be done but not without a lot of work.
