They may just have a bad memory.

You know that lady who always puts the coffee cup on the top of her car and then forgets it's there as she drives off? Or, that guy who forget his infant son was strapped into the backseat before he parked for the night?

These forgetful zodiac signs are just a few of the kind that tend to not remember, and it's all due to their personality assigned by astrology. But why do we forget so easily?

We forget because we are distracted, preoccupied, and, in some cases, selfish. We forget because we evaluate everything around us for its worth in our lives, and if something registers as less than worthy, we tend to put its importance in the back of our mind, where we promptly forget it exists.


Some folks are much more forgetful than others, though we're all forgetful to a degree. Some forget plans, some forget to show up, some forget to be nice, while others forget how to say no. It all depends on what's out there to pay attention to or to ignore. So, what do the zodiac signs forget the most?


ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

They forget the big stuff, and what I mean by that is, they're terrific for remembering the little things, saying "I love you," or being there when you need them. They're great for this, but they will forget to show up in court and just about any important appointments.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo forgets discretion. They are incapable of holding their thoughts in, and being that they're not naturally kind people, they dole out filterless opinions whenever the mood takes them. No discretion means hurt feelings abound.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libra has no idea how awful it is to be on the receiving end of their nonstop lying. They forget they aren't good at lying, so when they are caught, as they always are, they forget once again and bring in a new lie to support the old one.
