Don't judge a book by its cover.

How you look on the outside isn't always what you are on the inside, and it's interesting to see what people THINK your zodiac sign is all about versus what you really feel inside. You've heard to never judge a book by its cover. How someone looks or dresses does not say exactly who they are at first glance.

It's fair that you would only be sexually attracted or compatible with someone that you find physically appealing, but there is always more than meets the eye. 

Sure there are some people who are more expressive in the way they dress but that doesn't give away every single aspect of their personality. You can't really know if someone is a person you should never date, or if two people will be the next ultimate power couple by the way they dress or style their hair.

Anybody could be anything, we all have personalities like onions; you have to peel back the layers. The same thing goes with how good you feel about the way that you look.

How we choose to portray ourselves is totally up to us, we have that power. 

With the exceptions of uniforms or dress code for something like a job, there is no one to tell us how we should appear to others. You can dress up every day in pumps and a miniskirt or dress down in comfy sweats and a big T.

How you look is completely up to you and your personal preference, and for some people, their zodiac sign.

How you do your hair, how you present your thoughts and opinions, the vibe you give off all has a factor in how you are perceived by others on the outside. A dynamic that everyone has, surface one way and deep down another.

A lot of people portray themselves in a certain way only to be the complete opposite on the inside. They aren't necessarily hiding anything, well not all the time at least.

Looking at your zodiac and horoscopes you can tell just who you may be perceived in the totally wrong way. So take a read below to see how astrology can give you some insight on yourself or let you discover something new about someone close to you.
