6 Headstrong Zodiac Signs Who Refuse To Budge On Anything

They'd rather drive around for hours than ask for directions.

6 Obstinate Zodiac Signs Who Never Ask For Help. getty

Asking for help is one of the simplest things you can do, and yet, for some people, it’s incredibly difficult. Some refuse to ask for help, no matter how foolish the alternatives may make them look.

Does astrology have anything to do with whether or not we ask for help? Well, since there are personality traits associated with the zodiac signs, it only makes sense that, at least to some degree, astrology influences our behavior.


You may think that asking for help is the same as admitting defeat or showing weakness, but it’s not. The headstrong zodiac signs need to understand that it’s a practical and time-saving thing to do. Rather than spending hours trying to figure out something on your own and possibly never getting the right answer, asking for help is a way to get what you need to carry on.

1. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

It's not that Aries are against asking for help on principle, it's just that they don't have the time or the patience. These individuals tend to be more impulsive than patient, and to slow their roll long enough to ask someone for help and then wait to get some advice isn't in their bandwidth.


It's better for Aries to keep pushing forward, and if mistakes are made, they will deal with them when they're able to. Or, they'll leave it for someone else to handle.

2. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns tend to be very proud of how capable they are, and if something comes up that's challenging or needs information, they are going to figure it out for themselves. The last thing Capricorn wants is to feel incompetent.

They aren't sure that information that comes from other people is reliable, or that they can trust other people's intentions. It's much better to just keep going, find whatever resources they can, and hope for the best.

3. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarians can be full of themselves when it comes to doing things, and they're secretly terrified they'll be exposed as someone who doesn't know what they're doing. These individuals won't ask for help because they don't want to appear uninformed.

They like having the safety net of experimentation, so if something goes wrong it's understood and it's used to improve things. It's kind of like the grown-up version of "I meant to do that."

4. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

There's a reason that Sagittarians never ask for help: they want to do things their way and their way only, even if it's wrong. They are scared of making a mistake or looking like they don't know what they're doing.

They don't want to have to switch their method or technique for someone else's. Sagittarius have a stubborn streak, and even though they're constantly moving and being active, they are set in their ways.

5. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios don't ask for help, because not only don't they want to be a burden to anyone, they don't want to feel they owe someone. Scorpios pride themselves on their ability to take care of themselves, and they do it very well.


If they were to depend on the kindness of others, it could take away some of their sense of self-worth and accomplishment. They know they'll figure it out eventually, and then they'll have something else to be proud of.

6. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus are very stubborn, and they believe their way is the only way. Asking someone for help might involve Taurus having to change, and they don't want to do that.


They're happy the way they are, and that their instincts and ideas will always steer them into making the correct decisions and taking the best actions. If things take a little longer without help, that's fine. Taurus is extremely patient and focused enough to see things through.
