Stop playing the blame game.

Astrology Zodiac Sign guilt Blame Game

When something goes wrong, who do you blame? Some zodiac signs play the blame game when they don't want to take responsibility for their actions. But did you know that blaming yourself for things is a form of the blame game, too?

Surely you have had a mishap that is your fault (or someone else's) unless you're Jesus or something. It's inevitable that in life mistakes will be made and it will not always go as planned. Anything at any time can go wrong without a warning.


You could be driving somewhere and all of the sudden a flat tire deters you. Some people may just shrug it off as a bad stroke of luck while others beat themselves up internally with self-blame for not having their tires checked that week.

Perhaps you are performing in a dance show and you miss a step and trip a little. Some dancers may just vow to be more careful even though accidents happen. But others will cast the blame on themselves thinking that they should have never even tripped in the first place. 

According to astrology, some zodiac signs feel guilty even when they haven't done something wrong. The reason for this is that there are traits within each zodiac sign's house that may influence the personality of their star sign.



For example, if you have an Earth sign like Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn in one or more of your astrological houses, you may be someone who is more strict with yourself. The reason is that these signs are perfectionistic. They hold themselves to higher standards than everyone else, mistakes and failure is simply not an option. This comes in the form of playing the blame game, but it's a party of one. 

Astrology reveals things about the way we handle mistakes and bumps in the road basing those ideas off of personality traits of a zodiac sign. Even when situations are unplanned planned the way your sign responds to unexpected moments can be predictable. Life is always going to be unpredictable when you think you finally have it figured out, it changes. But you can guess how a particular zodiac sign will respond when faced with a random crisis.

Looking at your horoscope and zodiac can help determine where your sign falls. There are four signs that seem to blame themselves more than the rest. This attribute can work as a tenacious motivator. But we aren't given a handbook in life so it's okay to fudge up.

Everyone does, it's how we learn and grow so cut yourselves a break. Here are 4 zodiac signs who blame themselves for things even when they shouldn't.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer Astrology Zodiac Sign guilt Blame Game

According to astrology, a Cancer zodiac sign does not take any sort of bump in the road lightly. She is in tune with her emotions so she tends to react with her heart more than her head. She does not like to make mistakes because it will weigh heavy on her mind especially if her mistake may have hurt another person in any sort of way.

A Cancer plays the blame game more than other signs. She blames herself for any and all mistakes she makes, being that in touch with herself is the main component to that. If she wants to let go and just relax she can but she needs to work on some initial feelings always first.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo Astrology Zodiac Sign guilt Blame Game

Virgo is the perfectionist of astrology. She is hardworking. She also hates anything that prohibits herself from reaching any of her goals. She believes that she has control over her own life (because she made sure she would). She self- blames and plays the blame game more often than she should.

If things don't go as planned she can be thrown off and feel as though she didn't get to plan enough. With life being so unpredictable it is quite inevitable that you won't always be prepared, A Virgo needs to remember that just because she might not be prepared does not mean she can't handle it. Learn to roll with the punches a little more, it's worth it.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces Astrology Zodiac Sign guilt Blame Game

A Pisces self-blames when she gets caught up in her feelings. Her vast imagination makes her emotions hard for her to reign it in at times. Having a mind that seems to run away from herself at certain moments tends will have her react very emotionally when it comes to mistakes. This is what causes her to play the blame game.

She will ultimately blame herself if something goes wrong especially if someone is hurt in the process. Being so emphatic and selfless makes it hard for a Pisces to not get so emotionally invested. She can think irrationally when her mind gets going so she needs to learn that even if she did cause a mess up in her life, it happens and it doesn't make her a failure.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini Astrology Zodiac Sign guilt Blame Game

 A Gemini is not easy to please. She plays the blame game when her mind is always changing and that includes her decisions. A Gemini is quick to blame herself if something goes wrong. As dynamic as she is she is also very nervous at times and that uneasiness to her translates into her being the catalyst of all that goes wrong in life.

She can be inconsistent and not always firm in what she needs so blaming herself is the only option for her because if no one else knows what she truly wants they how can she be to blame. A Gemini should remember that you don't need to know what you want all the time to be happy, having options are okay but just don't weigh every single option just because you think the grass is greener on the other side.
