How Each Zodiac Sign Handles Failure

How Each Zodiac Sign Handles Failure


You use your failure as motivation to try again. You want to prove everyone wrong about you.


You get really down about yourself. You start wondering why you even bother trying.


You lash out because you feel like you deserved to succeed. You don’t think it’s fair you didn’t get your way.


You aren’t surprised by failure. You always expect the worst, but when it happens, you’re still disappointed.

For the person who is always googling astrological compatibility when they meet someone new.

How You’ll Do Everything Based On Your Zodiac Sign includes an exhaustive analysis of each sign’s personality. You’ll learn which high school clique represents them (Pisces are the cool art kids), who would get eaten first in a scary movie (Gemini, obviously) to how each sign prefers to say ‘I love you’ (for Taurus, it’s with good food). Alternating between silly, sweet, and serious, this book is filled with deep dives into the mind of everyone whose birth chart you can get your hands on.

You get annoyed by all the people who succeeded instead of you. Your jealousy gets the best of you.


You analyze what went wrong so you don’t make the same mistake in the future. You use it as a learning experience.


You treat yourself gently. You know you did your best, and you’re proud of yourself.


You start thinking of all the other times in the past you’ve failed and overwhelm yourself with regrets.


You give yourself some time to cry. You treat yourself to candy and ice cream and all the beer you want.


You get right back to work. You don’t waste any time moping about what could have happened. You focus on your future instead.


You pretend you didn’t care about succeeding anyway. You tell yourself you’re completely fine when you’re not.


You rant to all of your friends. You run to them for advice and encouragement. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
