The Reality Check Each Zodiac Sign Needs Right Now

The Reality Check Each Zodiac Sign Needs Right Now


The universe doesn’t revolve around you. Putting yourself first is fine, but you should care about more than yourself. You shouldn’t always choose the selfish decision.


It’s good to be a kid at heart — but you need to take responsibility, too. You’re not actually a child anymore. You need to take care of yourself. You can’t rely on someone else to do it for you.


If you screw someone over and apologize, that doesn’t mean that person must return to your life. Sometimes, a sorry can’t fix the problem. Sometimes, you have to move on and accept that you screwed up a good thing.


You’re a nurturer — but you don’t need to take care of everyone else so much that you forget about yourself. Don’t procrastinate when it comes to your own problems because you’re focused on everyone else.

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.

Stop causing so much drama. Not every problem deserves a monologue. You have to learn how to deal with your problems without getting so upset over them. Your anger is only hurting yourself.


You aren’t perfect. You’re never going to be perfect. Instead of worrying about getting it right all the time, allow yourself to make mistakes. You’re only human.


You can’t wait to make important decisions. Waiting is a decision in itself, and if you wait too long, opportunities could pass you by. So make sure you’re more active in your own existence.


Stop trying to get everyone to like you. Some people are going to hate your guts and that’s okay. You don’t need to make them happy. As long as you’re proud of yourself, that’s all that matters.


Sometimes, life isn’t fair. Sometimes, it completely sucks. Instead of giving up, you have to learn how to roll with the punches. It’s going to be okay. Maybe not now. But eventually.


Sometimes, you’re wrong. Even though you’re intelligent, that doesn’t mean you’re without faults. You need to own it when you screw up.


It’s okay to be different — but you shouldn’t make fun of people who enjoy trendy movies and games and clothes. It doesn’t make you cool. It makes you an asshole.


Your friends are supposed to support you — but you shouldn’t overwhelm them with your problems at all hours of the day. They have lives, too. Make sure you ask them how they’re doing instead of always talking about yourself. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
