These hurts accumulate and can start leaving scars, which many of us are deeply ashamed of. But these scars are the ultimate fountain of beauty.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

You are a gentle, warm-hearted soul, who just wants to love and be loved by friends and family. You actually give a lot in relationships. But sometimes you run into people who just take and take and, in turn, give you nothing but emotional and mental scars.

First, you have to learn to let these people go. Once you’ve done that, embrace the scars they left behind because they taught you something meaningful: They have taught you to sometimes receive without feeling the need to give, which can be hard for you if you are really in love or deeply care about the person.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You are naturally gregarious and social, Gemini. That is why there are bound to be some misunderstandings where people will misinterpret your intentions. You might have some witty comebacks, but deep down you will feel very hurt.

These incidents will keep gathering up since you have such a wide circle of friends and acquaintances, leaving deep scars. In order to understand how your scars make you beautiful, you need to see the beauty in the way you communicate, which leaves many spellbound.

Your ease during social interactions is one of your strengths. So just remember how many people gravitate towards you because of your communication skills whenever you feel your scars are weighing down on you. You’ll realize that no one is perfect and vow to just be better next time.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Emotional and sensitive, you probably have many scars, Cancer, since this world does not know how to nurture you properly. After being hurt so many times, you might consider hiding in your shell.

But before you do that, realize that your scars are beautiful because they show how caring you are. This world needs more people who care and so you must not feel ashamed of your scars. Rather, you should be proud that in this cold, harsh world, you have dared to be vulnerable.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Your pride might not allow you to admit that you have scars, but you definitely think about them when you are alone. First of all, you must allow yourself to be vulnerable, at least with a select few loyal ones.

Don’t let the painful experiences deter you from having a deep connection with someone else. After you have done that, you will understand that people WILL love and admire you, especially because of your scars.

I know it might be difficult for you to believe since you might be ashamed of them. But these scars make you more relatable and lovable. If you don’t believe me, ask your loved ones.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You pay attention to the smallest details, both in work and your personal relationships. While this makes you great at what you do in the workplace, you might be prone to worries. Sometimes, people actually disappoint you and leave scars.

This causes you to be extra worrisome and you tend to fuss about your scars. What you need to realize is that your scars make you the near perfect person that you strive to be. Your scars are a reminder of what you have endured.

But they are also a reminder of the kinds of behavior that you should never allow anyone to put you through. More importantly, they teach you what not to do to others, which ultimately guides and satisfies your kind heart.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra, you live for relationships. So when someone hurts you, it leaves deep scars. You might even become weary of relationships for a while. What you need to realize is that your scars are there to remind you of your open heart. They prove that you give a lot and deserve happiness. They should tell you that you have gifts that you can give to someone worthy of your love.
Also, instead of letting them get you down, you should be inspired to be a little more discriminating when it comes to whom you let in your life. 

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Deep and intensely emotional, you have many scars that have been accumulating since you were a child. So it might be hard for you to see how they make you beautiful.

But as soon as you realize that these scars reveal what you have endured, you will see how they also make you beautiful.

Your beauty comes from the fact that you understand human nature more than anyone else, which allows you to make a difference in the world. 

You are one of those people who can truly lift others, and your scars guide you in this pursuit. So how can these scars that can lead to the betterment of many people ever be anything other than beautiful?

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You are an eternally optimistic soul, Sagittarius, and it takes a lot to get feeling down. You are always on the lookout for the next big thing, but every once in a while you stay somewhere long enough, usually a negative space, that can leave scars.

This might leave you wondering if anyone is even worth it for you to make a commitment. You need to understand that your scars reveal your best quality: your honesty. You try to live your life based on integrity and honesty, so when someone doesn’t value you for who you are, they might leave scars.

But don’t let their shortcomings get to you. You should be proud of the fact that you have a clear conscience and that your intentions have been pure. Most importantly, you should embrace your scars as precious lessons you have learned because they have definitely made you wiser.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Your naturally skeptical nature allows you to not be caught off guard by people. So it’s easier for you to avoid the ones who will hurt you. But sometimes someone sneaks past your guard, puts you down, and leaves you with scars.

This can be very damaging since you tend to brood over past mistakes when you are alone. In order to finally let the past go, you must embrace your scars.

This can be easy once you have realized that your scars show all that you have endured on your way to success. This is bound to make you proud of yourself and your accomplishments, which are an integral part of you.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

You are usually too detached to let anyone hurt you that deeply. But once you have let someone in, your fixed nature would not allow you to let go, especially of the scars they leave behind.

You should definitely let go of the person who has hurt you. But keep the scars because they remind you of your open-minded approach in life.

See, no matter how others see someone, you prefer to rely on your own experience. This makes you truly unique and refreshing to be around. This also makes you and your scars beautiful.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

You are a kind, sensitive soul, Pisces. You can also have issues with boundaries, which lets others hurt you a lot. This obviously leaves many scars. But instead of feeling sad about them, you should try to see how your scars signify your best trait, that is your compassionate soul.

You are one of the most accepting people around. You never discriminate based on superficial things. So the scars some people leave show that you have a beautiful soul and no one can take it away from you.
