No matter how ‘good’ we strive to be it is important that we recognise all aspects of our personality. Everyone has different sides to their character, even presenting a different version of ourselves in different situations. By becoming conscious of elements of our personality that arise when we are challenged, tired or stressed for example, we can do useful work on striving to create a better version of ourselves.
Negative aspects of the Zodiac signs
Below is a lighthearted ( but hopefully insightful ! ) look at the challenging aspects of each starsign along with the corresponding Tarot Card, see if anything strikes a chord with you !.
Aries (March 21–April 19) ( Tarot card The Emperor )
With Mars, the God of War as your ruling party, it’s not difficult to deduce your base character. Always ready to stand by what you think is always right, you’re not one to back down, but you flair up easily.
Advice: Try yoga for calming yourself and cooling your temper, think before opening your mouth !.
Taurus (April 20–May 20) ( Tarot card The Hierophant )
Trying to change the mind of a Taurus is like trying to close a revolving door. We all know how impossible that is. Just one word can describe a Taurus proper; Stubborn.
Advice: Choosing your battles is actually an excellent idea, take time to accept other peoples point of view, you might be pleasantly surprised.
Gemini (May 21–June 20) ( Tarot card The Lovers )
You are an Air sign, Gemini, and that shows the capability (and apparent eventuality) of trying out your hand at probably everything possible. But that doesn’t actually mean that at the end of the day there would be concrete results to show for it all.
Advice: Read this again. You need focus, and need to stay focused. If you start a project take time to finish it.
Cancer (June 21–July 22) ( Tarot card The Chariot )
Mood swings are par for the course with Cancerians. Cancerians are of course excellent as homebodies and like to dish out the occasional ‘I told you so’. Can be part time lunatics too; the ruling body is the moon after all !.
Advice: Enough with the cavalry vibe. You should have a good time every now and then for your sake.
Leo (July 23–August 22) ( Tarot card Strength )
If asked to name five words to describe himself/ herself, a Leo couldn’t just stop at just five. Modesty’s a foreign word to a Leo, and that’s just putting it modestly.
Advice: You can’t always be the King of the Jungle. Sometimes you need to step down and let someone else have a piece of the show.
Virgo (August 23–September 22) ( Tarot card The Hermit )
Tidy, neat, clean, perfection; the characteristics of a Virgo. Seeing as you always imagine the spotlight is on you, these traits are only natural in your personality.
Advice: Even if you have to make up something now and then, it wouldn’t hurt to actually compliment a friend to shift the focus.
Libra (September 23–October 22) ( Tarot card Justice )
Vanity is just about synonymous with Libra; shopping, sleeping, looking good are just some of the things a Libra is good at. Decisions are not the specialty of Libras; ask them to make one and you’ll wait a long time for a result.
Advice: You really should understand that some mirrors are meant for show, so you can actually pass them without looking at yourself first.
Scorpio (October 23–November 21) ( Tarot card Death )
I believe the safest thing I can say about Scorpios is the fact that they can be scary. Anything more and I may be the centre for a revenge plot.
Advice: Your passion can be very intense, to very unhealthy levels. Honestly.
Sagittarius (November 22–December 21) ( Tarot card Temperance )
Open mouth, insert foot … again and again and again … Formal events are not a Sagittarius’ forte, embarrassment is afoot. But anything involving spontaneity and a Sagittarius is way out in front.
Advice: Being impulsive definitely has its exciting moments, but looking before leaping is still a golden rule.
Capricorn (December–22 January 19) ( Tarot card The Devil )
As much as money can seemingly make things easier, it really doesn’t help you live a truly satisfying life. Another hard to accept tidbit is the fact that weekends mean you should be out of the house, not counting money indoors or bearing a grudge.
Advice: Pessimism is never a good look on anyone. Look out for your inner Devil & extinguish the flames.
Aquarius (January 20–February 18) ( Tarot card The Star )
Aquarians a.k.a the mad scientists of astrology, are perceived as slightly esoteric, not quite earthbound people. And that is a feeling they adore.
Advice: Sinbad went through Seven Seas. You should try sailing out more and stop being alone in your carefully created world.
Pisces (February 19–March 20) ( Tarot The Moon )
Fairy tales are a regular for Pisces. Let’s face it, their watery cousins (mermaids and the Loch Ness Monster) exist in a similar world.
Advice: There’s not much wrong in trying to live in a dream world, but when it’s clouded your take on the real world then it’s time to wake up and face reality.
I hope you enjoyed that lighthearted trip through the Zodiac, watch out for the darker side of your starsign ! lots of Love Paul x
