Appearances Are EVERYTHING To These Superficial Zodiac Signs.

It’s not a compliment being called superficial. It means that appearances are more important to you than going deep. For superficial zodiac signs, everything is surface; they like things pretty, easy, and light.

Superficial people tend not to be reliable, empathetic, self-sacrificing, or serious. They lack emotional and intellectual depth and are incredibly shallow. No horoscope or astrology guide can knock them down from their high horses.

Someone who is materialistic is often superficial, and they tend to be more interested in their own comforts or the acquiring of money and material possessions than with their own growth as a human. They’re less concerned with spiritual, cultural, and intellectual values than they are with getting a fancy car or how on point they are with how they look.

There are zodiac signs who tend to be a bit more superficial than others. Not only are they overly materialistic, but they live to gossip about others. Their conversation has very little value and comes across as little more than empty talk.

Being superficial isn’t the worst personality trait you can have — most of the time, you’re not out to hurt someone (you’re too self-centered to extend that kind of energy towards them), it’s just that once you’ve acquired all the wealth and pretty things you coveted, there’s very little to sustain you.

The things that make one’s life truly full is the experiences they have, the people that they connect with, and the values they hold dear. There’s always time to become less superficial and more substantial.

1. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libras like to keep things light if possible. And yes, they do tend to place an overemphasis on physical attraction, but who doesn't? Libras are just being honest in saying that how someone looks is one of the main things that attract them.

They have standards and if someone doesn't meet their physical expectations, they may not take the time to get to know them.

2. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis tend to show how superficial they are by the way they are constantly posting on social media. They've got an entire album of selfies, they feel the need to update about everything (we don't care that you are planning two vacations this summer), and they hijack comments on other people's shares.

How did you just make that birthday greeting to your friend all about you? Geminis are so busy posting that they can never go deep on anything.

3. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus' tell of superficiality is their entitlement — it's so big, it practically overshadows their huge egos. Ask a Taurus and they'll explain to you why they deserve nice clothes, a big house, a fancy new car, a fabulous vacation, and the hottest partner.

Their reason for all things wonderful? Because they are who they are, and they want what they want, end of story. They may not have earned these things but that shouldn't matter; Taurus wants them and that should be enough.

4. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos are kind and generous to others, but they're also extremely critical and judgmental. A Virgo may form a negative opinion about someone before they even meet them. They think they have the ability to be able to look at someone and size them up.

In addition, because Virgo holds themselves and others to ridiculous standards, most people are going to come up short. For all the thinking that Virgo does, they certainly have the ability to make snap judgments about others.

5. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

No matter how brave and fierce a Leo is, they are often obsessed with material things. They love bling, designer clothing, and expensive shoes. Leos like to look good and they like their partners to look good too.

But the thing that makes Leo so superficial is their love of attention. It doesn't matter if it's good or bad attention, as long as Leo is in the center of it. They love to be looked at and talked about and if they have to be a drama queen to get it, that's okay.

6. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius will gladly tell you that they have a spiritual side — and they do. However, they don't have enough time to fully explore it because they're too busy doing things and meeting people to slow down. Also, they aren't the most self-aware sign in the Zodiac.

They don't enjoy going deep and examining their feelings, thoughts, or behaviors. If something goes wrong in their relationship, it's the other person's fault, not Sagittarius. If there's a problem, it's not anything that a change of venue can't solve.
