6 Zodiac Signs With Bad Memories

You don’t have to be an old person to have a bad memory. Sometimes we have so many things crammed into our brains that there’s just not any room for any more facts, stories, or information. Other times, you don’t have any desire to remember and secretly hope the memory will fade completely away.

There are forgetful zodiac signs with a bad memory who have to be constantly reminded of everything. Luckily, you can train yourself to be better at remembering things, and if you get good enough you can improve.

Some memory techniques include reading information out loud, visualizing, or associating certain words with things they want to memorize. But other ways of improving your memory are even simpler, like not cramming information or making sure to get enough sleep.

If you make an effort to improve your memory, you’ll be surprised how, in a small amount of time, things will change.

1. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Let's face it: Aries individuals don't always have the greatest attention span because there are so many things that divide it. They don't focus enough when they're doing something, so the information doesn't stick as well as it would if they were focused on it.

There's a memory competition going on in Aries' brain, and as with any contest, there can only be one winner. The thought that loses is quickly forgotten.

2. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius tends to have the kind of memory where they get it only half right. They might remember going to a show but won't be able to remember correctly who they went with, when the show was, or even where it was.

They remember the big picture and get the small details wrong. Sagittarians are confident enough that when they know something, they really know it, and will stand up to anyone who thinks otherwise.

3. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

The Leo memory tends to be a bit biased. Their perceptions or recollections are influenced by their own personal beliefs, experiences, prior knowledge, and how they were feeling at the moment.

If they were angry when something happened, they may have trouble remembering what actually occurred, but they'll remember their rage so clearly it will feel as if it just happened.

4. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces tends to spend so much time in their imaginations that they may miss things that happen in real-time, or they simply prefer to remember things in their own colorful way. When you're busy creating amazing fantasy worlds in your head, the more practical details of life may fall off the radar.

Sometimes the fantasies can seem so real that when Pisces thinks of them again, they wonder if they were making things up or remembering something that actually happened.

Geminis want to retrieve the memory or the fact, especially if it's pertinent to a conversation. But they can't, and later, as they're falling asleep. They knew they were forgetting something.
