How Each Zodiac Sign Proves Their Commitment

I once had a really awful job. The pay was garbage and the job itself was a waste of my life and most certainly not something I wanted to be involved in other than to do my best and skedaddle, while looking forward to a paycheck. I remember the boss asked me to work a day that I had specifically asked to have off, and when I told her that I couldn't work on that day and that I requested it off in advance, she told me that I wasn't a team player.

This made me think: Was being a "team player" something I had to be, or was it something that I had to feel? Because, to me, being a "team player" meant I would do my best for the "team" because I was dedicated and committed to the mission of whatever the team was doing.

So, commitment had to be as a result of passion, and passion for this particular job was not something I had. I was not committed to making money for someone else. I was not committed to doing something I didn't want to do just to prove that I was a team player.

It's much like a committed relationship. And in astrology, how the zodiac signs commit in their relationships or goals is something they take seriously. Because commitment is a very real thing, whether it's about commitment to a relationship, an idea, a goal or one's self.

Committing one's self to anything requires belief, dedication and honesty. Can I commit to this, and can I come through on my promise? Commitments are like promises, and similar to promises, many people find them nearly impossible to uphold.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

They are keen on proving their commitment because they know how intense a thing a commitment is, so they let you know how dedicated they are by reiterating their commitment in words.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

While Taurus tends to fall into bouts of self-doubt, when they do commit, they prove it by doing the right thing instead of the old reliable wrong thing. Taurus proves commitment by acting, not talking.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo will commit firmly to anything they believe in, and they will not waver. However, that commitment doesn't come lightly, so they use their hyper-analytical skill set to figure out whether it's worth it or not. But if it's worth it, you'll see their commitment show up as loyalty and dedication.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Unfortunately, well-intended Libra doesn't commit very well to anything. Not relationships or projects. They like the idea of being dedicated to a goal, but they tend to make way too many promises that they never, ever keep. No commitment here.
