The Simple Things That Each Zodiac Sign Absolutely Deserves.

We all know the essential things we deserve in life — food, shelter, and water — but there are also simple things we not only deserve, but should be entitled to, like time to ourselves or forgiveness. The small things may be different than what somebody else needs, but it depends on who you are.

We all have our own personalities, likes and dislikes, and things that bring us joy or give us comfort. And with astrology determining the personality traits of each zodiac sign, it's clear there are certain simple things we all deserve. And if we aren't getting it, we need to step up and demand it.

We’re not always aware of the things we need and deserve. You may be someone who’s always working and it doesn’t even occur to you that you need to have fun or that it’s crucial to your well-being to take a vacation.

You may also be the kind of person who puts other people’s needs before your own, and when you do something for yourself, you feel guilty and/or selfish. You don't realizing that your own needs are important and you must put yourself first from time to time. You deserve as much care and love as anybody else.

Sometimes, we rationalize to ourselves that we don’t need something and that we’re better off without it, but there are things — such as physical contact, mental stimulation, and connection with people — that are vital to our survival. So, all those tiny, uncomplicated things you don’t think are important, actually are. And it's about time to get them for yourself.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries deserves to have some help and have someone make an effort for them. So often, Aries are very independent and capable, but on occasion, they'd appreciate not having to do everything themselves.

The question is: will having help encourage Aries to relax a little? Probably not, but it will be reassuring to them that they're cared for and appreciated, and that means the world to them.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus deserves to be pampered. They work very hard and are everybody's rock, which can be exhausting. They deserve a spa day or a foot massage.

Besides pedicures, feet are often overlooked as far as care goes, and we don't always treat our feet right. We can abuse them at the gym, standing on them all day, or wearing shoes that pinch, contort, or are just painful. If Taurus' feet feel good, their whole body will feel great.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis deserve to be heard. Yes, they are great at communicating, but that doesn't guarantee the person they're talking to is a fantastic listener. Gemini deserves something who is fully engaged in what they are saying, fully present, and isn't just waiting for their turn to speak.

Gemini deserves someone who gets them and understands what them on an intellectual level. They deserve a conversational partner who stimulates their big brain.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer deserves someone who will stand up for them and fight for them if necessary. Not a physical fight, but the kind where Cancer feels as if the person has their back and is supporting them.

Cancer deserves to feel like they have someone in their corner looking out for them, and is kind of an emotional safety net for them. They don't need someone who talks about kindness and compassion but never actually does those things.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leos deserves the kind of respect they give to everyone else. Leo doesn't treat people with respect just so they get back; they do it because that's how they're wired.

Everybody deserves respect, and Leo fully believes it and can be shocked when they're not treated as if they have worth. They do so much for other people and the world, and they've earned being treated with dignity and loyalty.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgos deserve care and understanding. They tend to want to handle everything themselves, even when they're going through something like a breakup or medical crisis. When Virgos are in the middle of a difficult time, they're very reticent to reach out to people.

The problem is that Virgos are known as being self-sufficient — the kind of person who figures things out for themselves. So instead of coming forward, people stay away. If they need care, they deserve to be able to get it.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libras deserve to be able to say "no" without getting flack about it. Sometimes, Libra doesn't want to do something, but they can feel pressure from other people to do. It's healthy to say "no" and to not feel as if you're letting everyone down if you decline an invitation.

Saying "no" can be the most honest thing you can do, and is much better than saying "yes" and resenting everyone involved.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpio deserves ride or die friends. They are a great friend and are extremely loyal, but they don't always get that same high level of friendship back. They need the kind of friends that will always be there for them, no matter what, and who have their best interest at heart.

Sometimes, Scorpio just needs a friend who won't take no for an answer and makes Scorpio go out and have fun, instead of being locked inside all day and night.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius needs to live somewhere where they feel completely at home, even if that place is far away from their friends and family. If Sagittarius settles where they feel restricted and bored, they will begin to feel resentful and suffocated.

Sagittarius needs to live somewhere that inspires and excites them. If their true home is not close to their loved ones, they will be more willing to visit, and the time spent to together will improve.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns deserve to be thought of as the social, hilarious people they are, not the dull image many people seem to have. Yes, Capricorns are hard-working but that doesn't mean they're boring or hate to have a good time; it's quite the opposite.

Capricorns love to cut loose and just have fun. They need to be appreciated and invited to enjoyable events, and even if they can't go because of work, it's always nice to be invited.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius deserves affection. Since Aquarians are so smart, they sometimes put all the focus on intellectual pursuits, and they forget about some of their physical needs. Humans need touch, and Aquarius not only needs to be touched, but they need to know people care about them through touch.

Aquarius crave affection, though they may not be aware of it. A consensual hug or a squeeze can go a long way in making them feel loved.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces deserve body love. They need to feel good about themselves and how they look, even if they don't align with the images we see in the media. Pisces need to feel that it's not only okay, but it's also necessary for them to enjoy the body they have and to feel good about who they are.

They need to be reminded that they're worthy of love, and that includes self-love. Loving yourself isn't being selfish, it's taking care of the number one person in your life: you!
