This Is Why You Keep Screwing Up, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Twenty20 / @Lesia.Valentain

Aries (March 21st – April 19th)

You’re a risk taker, which has its definite advantages. You run with the attitude that the world is yours to conquer, and with that many successes come your way. But because you do act so quickly, and sometimes with a bit of a hot head, you don’t always end up in situations that are to your benefit. You’re bad at ‘sleeping on it’. You screw up by not taking time to think through all the consequences of your actions.

Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)

You’re stubborn to a fault. You can’t ever admit you’re wrong, even when it’s 100% clear you are. This bullish inability to take ownership, to say when you screwed up, is going to cost a lot of relationships, romantic and otherwise.

Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)

You can’t make up your mind and it costs you a lot. Your indecisiveness hurts people. You think you can have your cake and eat it too, but you can’t. You have to pick a path. And when you don’t, it ruins everything.

Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)

You are so sensitive and it’s a beautiful part to you. You have so many emotions and care for people in such a way, it’s admirable. But you get such hurt feelings and you let it color everything. Not everyone will like you. Not everyone will approach you in a gentle manner. You ruin things by being so upset that you won’t listen to what someone actually means.

Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)

You’re so used to everyone loving you that when someone doesn’t, it completely ruins you. You become obsessed with proving your worth instead of remembering how many people adore you. This self-sabotaging behavior makes you focus on the wrong validation. You forget about the stuff that actually matters.

Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)

You think everything has to be perfect and according to some meticulous plan you’ve had in your head for as long as you can remember. You need to be the best at everything. Your partner has to be the best at everything. Every detail needs to be just right. You screw up by not allowing room for mistakes. You screw up by not realizing some of the best decisions aren’t logical ones. Some of the best things are a little messy.

Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)

You forgive someone when you shouldn’t. You’re so obsessed with fairness and seeing both sides of a situation, you end up allowing toxic people in your life. You screw up by not walking away.

Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)

You push people away when they seem too invested in you. The idea of being vulnerable and truly intimate freaks you out, so you put your stingers up and start hurting those who just want to love you. You screw up by ruining relationships that are actually loving and healthy, things you need in your life whether or not you actively realize it. You say you want to be alone, but down deep, you’re hungry for something real. But when that shows up, you sabotage it.

Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st )

You’re so excited about adventures and living life to the fullest that you turn your back on responsibilities. A savings account isn’t as sexy as saying, “screw it!” and hopping on a plane to travel the world. Making the rational choice instead of the fun one doesn’t come easily. It’s not that you can’t enjoy yourself, but you need to learn a balance. Things can’t be a party 24/7.

Capricorn: (December 22nd – January 19th)

You feel pressured to hit specific milestones. You rush into relationships that aren’t right. You end up in a career you’re unhappy with. You are so goal orientated that you don’t take time to ask yourself, “What do I actually want?”

Aquarius: (January 20th – February 18th)

You’re aloof and have a difficult time processing emotions of others, as well as your own. Instead of trying to be more understanding and compassionate, you just ghost. You screw up by trying to connect to other people.

Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)

You decide whatever fantasy Dreamland you’ve created is so much better than real life, so you funnel all your energy into it. You ignore real stuff, real responsibilities, real people. You screw up by losing your grip on reality. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
