There are some things that just need to be said, and a lot of people… well. They won’t say it. We’ve all heard this line before, though. “The truth hurts.” It doesn’t always have to hurt, necessarily but sometimes there are some hard pills to swallow. Let’s try to dole them out evenly. Of course, we can’t know everyone personally, but based on your Zodiac sign, here’s a harsh truth that you may need to be handed out to you. (Please note, much of this is satirical and is not meant to offend or harm anyone) Let’s get this going.
Aries: Goal-oriented and independent. I truly applaud you for those traits. They’re wonderful and many, many people strive for them. Let’s cut to the chase here: You’re headstrong and competitive. Not everything in life is going to go your way. Sometimes you need to sit down and chill out. Maybe actually listen to other people and take what they say into consideration. Listening to other people doesn’t make you any less of a winner. I feel like I should add – not everything in life is a competition. Learn to take it easy every once in a while.
Taurus: You’ve got a good work ethic… for the most part. You’re also a fighter. Again, these can be great qualities. But let’s be real here for a second – sometimes (oftentimes) you can be a stubborn jackass. You’re not always right. Sometimes other people have valid points. Also, this work ethic thing is great… once you stop the freaking procrastination. Haven’t you figured out yet that putting things off causes some stress? Sheesh.
Gemini: A social butterfly – talkative, social, lovable, chatty. You’ve got it going for you. Everyone loves the social butterfly, and you’ve just got this magnetic energy that attracts people to you. It’s beautiful. So, what did that person that you were talking to five minutes ago have to say about their dog again? Yeah, you probably don’t remember. Because you were distracted. Or just straight up not listening because you were thinking of what you were going to say next. Or which story you should tell next? LISTEN TO PEOPLE. Also, that story that you’re about to tell? We’ve heard it already. About ten times.
Cancer: You’ve got a sweet soul. You’re kind-hearted. You’re sensitive and loving. You’re loyal to a fault. Again, these can be great traits. But maybe you need to like.. Stop whining. That thing you’re whining about isn’t going to change just because you’re whining. That little moody hissy fit isn’t going to change it either. We get that you’re sensitive but sometimes you’ve just got to get over it. The past is in the past. Your future could be bright, but you really wouldn’t know that because you’re still whining about that thing that happened a year ago. Turn around and move forward. It’s your own fault that you’re still standing in place.
Leo: Kind, generous, and generally comes with high self-esteem. Not a bad combination right there. Your devotion is admirable. It’s great that you have high self-esteem – no, really, it’s wonderful that you love yourself. Keep on loving yourself but perhaps you could focus on something else for a few minutes. We get it. Being proud isn’t a bad thing either! It’s not! Until you get yourself in a situation and you’re too proud to actually get it taken care of. Your pride is going to get you in trouble someday and your dramatics aren’t going to help you get your way all the time. You probably haven’t even made it this far and are taking it as a personal insult- and if you did it’s only because you’re so vain you probably think this article is about you.
Virgo: You want to better yourself. You want to better those around you. You’re always thinking, thinking, thinking, and have probably analyzed everything that’s been said to you throughout today. Amiright? We know I’m right. Truthfully, my little Virgo, you need to lay off. You’re nitpicking everyone around you about every little thing. It comes with analyzing, right? You really don’t have much right to nitpick when you can’t keep it together yourself. Also, I get that you want to know the details before doing something, but by the time you’re done asking a million and a half questions, there’s a good chance that whatever we wanted to do has passed.
Libra: You just want to get along with everyone, and you mostly succeed! That’s amazing! Your ambition is great, and the fact that you get along with everyone means you probably have a lot of support! Ambition is an incredible thing, you know when you actually stick to it. Sticking with something – when’s the last time you actually did that? People change their minds, it happens, but with a Libra the constant flip-flopping, oh dear, I’m getting a headache just thinking about it. JUST MAKE A FREAKING DECISION ALREADY.
Scorpio: Two words. So. Intense. Your passion cannot be matched. You’re kind and loyal – but you’re intense about everything. I’m almost afraid to write this one because this passion mixed with the vengefulness of a Scorpio… Unbelievable. All I’ve got to say on this one: Sometimes the point doesn’t need to be proven. People don’t always need to be punished. Let it go. You don’t have to seek revenge over every little thing. And calm the eff down. Money makes the world go round, I get it, but you need to take a freakin’ chill pill.
Sagittarius: I’m definitely loving optimistic personalities! Most Sagittarius are excited to be around new people and generally excited about life. It can be so refreshing. Well, like I’ve said with a few other signs here… you need to CHILL. OUT. And maybe like, research these things that you say you believe in BEFORE you say you believe in them? It gets really confusing when one day you believe in this and the next day you believe in the opposite. A bit hard to follow, guys. The energy and excitement are adorable at first, but after a while, it can kind of be like being around a puppy. Exhausting. You may have all the energy in the world, but some of us need a break sometimes.
Capricorn: The wheels in your head are turning constantly. You’re ready to go. You’ve got everything under control. I love how your mind is so active! I also have to cringe and tell you that just because your mind is going all the time doesn’t mean that you have the right answer. There are other people in the universe that might have the right answer and well, it might be different from yours. I’m in no way saying that you’re a bad person, but maybe you’re a tad bit full of yourself. Just because you decided to overwork yourself doesn’t mean anyone else has to. You’re not better than them for it. Knock off the judgment, it’s unattractive.
Aquarius: You’re creative, you’re working towards something new, something innovative. You want to be the one to make a huge impact, a huge difference. Good for you! Not everyone in the world is going to agree with you. You have your own mentality, your own way of thinking, and that’s great, really, that’s just wonderful for you. Keep your composure, Aquarians. You’re unique and your way of thinking is different. That’s something that you pride yourself in. It might be a good idea to control your emotions a little better and not just lose them because someone disagrees or doesn’t understand. There are only so many emotional outbursts that people can take before they get tired of it. Like.. really tired of it. You’ve got to work on controlling your emotions.
Pisces: You’re a good listener. You’re a great friend. Your head is up in the clouds sometimes because you’re just a simple dreamer. You’re often daydreaming away but you’ll pause to listen to your friends. And then you’ll take on their problems. With how sensitive Pisces are known to be, this is going to be a hard pill to swallow: You can’t save the world. You can’t take on everyone else’s issues. You’re going to drive yourself crazy trying to save everyone. Please for the love of everything just stop. And when you do stop, and you feel guilty for not fixing someone else’s problem, don’t blame an innocent bystander. Even when you actually ARE guilty of something, blaming the innocent bystander – is not cool. Own up to yourself.
ALL SIGNS: There are positive and negative traits in everyone, whether it has anything to do with your Zodiac sign or not. Some of these may have seemed a little harsh but I can almost guarantee at least one person needed to stumble across this. While some of these pills were hard to swallow, the truth is that you are capable of being a good person regardless. You are capable of being a good person, and you are loved. Let your inner beauty shine through.
