You don’t need to be a rebel to stand by your decisions and not feel the need to justify them to anybody. You just need to be confident, strong, and able to stand tall all on your own without needing or wanting the help of others.

Some self-assured zodiac signs don’t feel the need to justify their actions. These signs in astrology aren’t trying to win a popularity contest, nor does their existence depend on the approval of others.


They tend not to be people-pleasers, and have a strong sense of self, a belief in their words and actions, and don’t feel they need to fit in with everybody. They’re strong, and the only person they need to please is themselves. There’s freedom in not caring what other people think of you. Sometimes it’s best to just let your actions speak for themselves so you’re free to go on.

No one likes to be told what to do, so it makes sense that having to justify your actions would have that same annoying feeling. Trust that you’ve thought things through and that when you take action, you have no problem standing behind it.


1. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries is going to do whatever they want to do, and they give zero f***s if somebody doesn't like it. They don't believe they owe anyone an explanation, and even if they did, they don't have time to run their plans by someone else. In fact, if someone tells them not to do something, that's just going to make them want to do it even more.

Aries have a stubborn streak. All that matters to them is whether they're passionate about something or not. If they are, they're going all out, and even if it turns out to be a mistake, they don't feel obligated to make excuses.

2. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarians are pretty much the opposite of approval-seekers. They're not people-pleasers, and if someone has an issue with something they do, that's not their problem.


Aquarians don't care about fitting in, and if they have to choose, they'd much rather stand out. They are super independent, both emotionally and financially, and stubborn. If they feel something is the right thing to do, there's nothing anyone can do or say to change their mind.

3. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leos are leaders, not followers, so they feel no need to get anyone's approval for anything they do. To justify their actions would feel like their resolve was weakened or that they would compromise on their vision.

Leos tend to stand by their decisions, which they didn't go into lightly in the first place. Leos are confident they can trust their instincts to do the right thing. Justifying their actions is unnecessary and would slow down the process.

4. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius is too impatient to justify their actions. They acted, and now it's time to move to the second step or move on. Sagittarius is extremely independent and has a strong sense of what's right and wrong. It may not be what other people believe in, but their own set of beliefs help to guide them.

Sagittarians tend to be confident in themselves and their decisions, so they don't need validation from others that they've done the right thing.

5. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

All Cancer needs is the idea that what they're doing is for the benefit of their loved ones. They don't need to be popular or liked by everybody, which gives them the freedom to do what they want.

Cancers are weighed down by the need to justify their actions or make excuses for things that didn't turn out as planned. Cancers are creative and may do things that nobody else would think of doing, but they stand behind their actions.
