Deep down, we are guided by our desires, influencing our actions, decisions and reactions throughout life. This is the inner motivation that encourages us to keep fighting, inspiring us to step out of our comfort zone and go for the gold.
However, it is important to recognize that desires come and go throughout life. What you don’t want as an adult probably differs incredibly from the wishes you had as a child or even as a teenager.
In fact, you could say that your wishes today are probably very different from your wishes just a year ago! They change at every stage and season of our life, helping us orient and focus in an otherwise overwhelming world.
We may find ourselves influenced by society, the people around us, or the advertising that is so strategically stirred on our faces. Why do you think companies spend so much money on TV and Internet advertising? If they can convince you that you want their product, that you NEED their product, you are much more likely to split up with your hard earned money.
However, underneath all the influences of society are your deepest inner desires. It is the needs and desires that form the basis of all that we are. They motivate us to get up in the morning and give us something to dream about when we crawl into bed at night.
Discover the hidden desires of each sign of the zodiac:
Aries (March 21 – April 19):
Driven and determined, an Aries truly believes they can only accomplish anything if they think about it. They refuse to allow others to hold them back and hinder them, ready to give whatever it takes to make their dreams come true, guiding others on the path to success.
Their wish? Lead others on their way, be recognized for their success.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20):
By building their life on a solid foundation, there is nothing else a Taurus needs in their life other than safety in all areas. This includes a solid and unwavering relationship, financial security, a secure career, and a reliable family life.
Their ideal life will happen when all these pieces come together. The easiest way to calm down a stubborn Taurus is to keep them safe.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20):
Full of energy and excitement, Gemini’s wish is that their ongoing adventures never end.
They are always looking for their next big adventure, finding motivation in life through new experiences and the opportunity to meet new people. If it ended, their whole life would fall apart.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22):
The sensitive and compassionate Cancer can always be the first person to react to every situation they encounter in life, what they really want is freedom. This includes not only financial freedom but emotional freedom as well.
Obviously, as many will point out, stereotypical cancer is far from emotionless, but deeply ingrained desire is an ongoing journey they’re not ready to give up.
Leo (July 23 – August 22):
While most people will conclude that all of Leo’s desires are to feed his ego: power, success, money, the truth is much more subtle. What does a Leo want above all?
Inside their cold, hard exterior is a cute teddy bear who just wants to feel appreciated by those around them for everything they do.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22):
The Virgo perfectionist is another surprise. Like Leo, their cold looks often hide their true sensitive selves.
In reality, there is nothing a Virgo desires more than love: the true, lasting and meaningful love that exists between two soul mates, committed to standing side by side through thickness and thinness.
Libra (September 23 – October 22):
Spending their entire lives bringing harmony, balance and unity to the world they live in, a Libra’s efforts reflect a much greater internal desire.
Basically, all they want is the same feeling of balance and harmony in their life. They prefer to live a simple, conflict-free life rather than seek glory or success.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21):
Scorpio’s ambition can get them into trouble, but the truth is that there is nothing that guides a Scorpio in life more than proving that everyone around them is wrong.
While others may be hurt if someone tells them they can’t do something, Scorpio sees it as a challenge, that they refuse to lose and will be very proud of the reaction of others when they show it.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21):
Mostly famous for its adventurous nature, Sagittarius is always looking for something new. However, what most don’t realize is that adventure itself isn’t their desire.
They are motivated by the need to change the world and leave their mark, constantly leaving their comfort zone to broaden their mind, stimulate their creativity and improve their capacity for innovation. They really just want to make the world a better place.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19):
The hardworking Capricorn is eager to succeed, but not for the reasons you can assume. They don’t care about their own wants and needs. Instead, they work hard because what they want most is to add value to their families.
Having your family recognize your efforts is the greatest gift we can give them
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18):
Probably the most obvious of the signs, there is nothing an Aquarius desires more than their uniqueness. They hate the idea of merging with the crowd and will even abandon things like love and pleasure if they consider them too “trivial”.
In fact, sometimes they become so blinded by their desire to stand out that they forget their true feelings and emotions, not to mention those of the people around them.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20):
Living with their head in the clouds, Pisces spend a large part of their life dreaming and, in doing so, they find quite noble ideas.
While not all of these ideas are realistic (ok, well, very few are realistic), there is nothing more desirable for people to take their ideas seriously and help them realize them.
