why the worst thing about each zodiac sign is actually the best

I love when people say things like, "I believe in the goodness of all human beings." How positive and uplifting... until you watch that five-year-old little boy pour ketchup all over his little sister. Or, when you see that man in the position of power abuse and harass that young woman who is just trying to make a living.

Yet, somehow, we're still here, destroying the planet with our greatness and love. We can't all be that bad and, certainly, we must have something redeeming about us. Right... right

Astrology has a way of showcasing what's awful about us. And while we very well may be the worst thing to ever happen to the solar system, we still have this ability to turn it all around and make it all better.

What's the worst thing about your zodiac sign, and how do you make it the best thing?

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

You are narcissistic. How that works for you? It helps you protect yourself. Your instincts for survival are on point, and while sometimes that makes you seem selfish, it sure as hell keeps you alive and well.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

You are lazy to the point of destruction. Careless and irrationally messy. How you make that work? You understand that "things" are meaningless and are a mess in the greater scheme of things. You escape the mess by turning super zen, detached in the face of the storm.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You are cold, reserved and non-communicative. How that becomes beneficial? Never coming out of your shell can actually make you feel more confident. You may not like to share yourself, but that leaves more for you. Being cold is great for you because you have no desire to warm up.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You have a complete lack of forgiveness and hold on to hate forever and ever. How that can become the best thing? It shows you that trust is earned, and you use intense discrimination whenever you meet a new person. Self-preservation at its finest!

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

You are a massive egomaniac. How you make it work for others? Ego is a good thing; it allows you to be strong when you need to be, and your fearlessness gets you out of as much trouble as it gets you into.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You are a harsh judge of everything and everyone. How you manage to turn that into a good thing? Judging weeds out what's not right for you, and you trust your own judgement. In the long run, you may be perceived as a monster, but the truth is, you really just don't want crap in your life.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

You are the world's most pathological liar. How that somehow becomes good? It gives you that sense that others believe you, and that lifts your spirits. You want to get away with murder, and being a truly excellent liar allows you to do just that.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

You're a sadist and a manipulator. How that somehow doesn't matter? It doesn't matter because you take that skill set and get what you want with it, which is amazing. You are forceful and cruel, but you always end up with the most toys.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You are impossible to be with. How it all changes for the better? Because you never show up or get involved in anything that has anything to do with other humans, you make that trait work well for you. It ends up with you alone, and a loner Sagittarius is a happy Sagittarius.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You're a b**** — a mean, self-centered b****. How you work that aspect to your advantage? You use the fear you instill into others to get what you want.

Having people fear your poison tongue gives you the freedom to get people out of your way. Plus, you enjoy hearing yourself b****, so it's a win-win situation.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Your sense of self-preservation is akin to cold, blunt selfishness. How you survive your own bad traits? You hoard all you have, which makes it feel like you have a lot, while it's merely just a bunch of selfishly gathered items.

We notice, you don't. And that's how you make it a good thing. You don't notice you are selfish.

PISCES (February 19 - March 10)

You're overly sensitive and it gets on everyone's nerves. What do you do to make it better? You use that sad sack mentality to drive people crazy, and just to shut you up, they will give you everything you want. Master manipulators do not suffer their manipulations.
