5 Zodiac Signs Who Ask For Advice & Then Don't Take It. getty

We all have that one friend who asks our advice and then never takes it You want to help but you wonder why you should even bother. You went through all the trouble of listening to them, thinking about their problem, and then coming up with a solution.

When your wise words are thrown out and disregarded, it can feel disrespectful. When we look at behavior with astrology, we can learn more about why people do the things they do and why they develop certain habits. And for the zodiac signs who don't follow advice, they probably shouldn't have bothered asking to begin with.


At some point, the person asking for the advice must have really wanted guidance. So what happened to make them not take it? Was it not what they wanted to hear? Do they think they know better? 

Sometimes people ask for advice because they want to vent. They want the opportunity to explain what they’re going through and what they need help with, but they don’t want anyone’s advice. But when they don’t follow your advice and make their situationworse, all you can do is have a secret satisfaction that they should have listened.


1. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

If you asked Sagittarius for advice, they'd expect you to use it, but they don't follow that rule themselves. Sagittarians like discussing things and figuring out solutions, but when it comes to implementing other people's advice, they just can't seem to do it.

The bottom line is that Sagittarius is confident they know best,, and it doesn't matter how many ideas other people may suggest. They are going to do their own thing.

As much as Scorpio may respect and even love the person giving them advice, there's a part of them that feels they just don't know what they're talking about. It's difficult for Scorpios to trust people anyway, and that goes double for their advice.


There's a part of Scorpio who is always hoping that someone will be able to give them the perfect piece of advice, which is why they ask for it, but no one ever does. They are focused enough that if they need answers, they can find them.

3. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Generally, when Taurus asks for advice, they just want someone to agree with them. Taurus knows that it's great to get other people's opinions and ideas, but the person they trust to give them the best counsel is themselves.

The idea that someone else could know what Taurus needs to do better is ridiculous. Once they have made up their mind, it's pointless to try to convince them they should do something else.
