The question remains, how much of what we read are mere ‘puff pieces,’ and how many reveal the real truth. Can most people handle the real truth? Well, brace yourself, because we’re bringing you just that – the brutal, unfiltered truth.
Here is the most brutally honest and truthful description of your Zodiac sign:
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
It can be difficult to keep everything organized all the time, but with a little effort, you could surely do better than you are at this point. Your disorganization is a burden on everyone else in your life, constantly trying to sort your world out for you. Part of life as an adult is stepping up and being responsible for your own BS – So, grow up and, put on those big boy/girl pants and start organizing your life.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
We get it, you’re stubborn, but are you arguing because you truly believe what you are fighting for, or are you arguing because you refuse to accept that you may not be right. When others agree with you it’s often not because they actually believe what you are saying, they are merely giving up because they know that arguing with you is a pointless endeavor. Is that really what you want? People who give in to you, just to shut you up?
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Indecisive and inconsistent, you often don’t know what you want in this life and to be honest – no one else really knows what you want either. You confuse everyone around you, and that only leads to frustration. If you don’t learn how to make a decision sooner rather than later, you’re going to drive everyone away. After all, would you stick around with the frustration that you are creating?
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
You are incredibly sensitive, highly aware of the problems that exist in the world, but have you noticed that you seem to discover problems where no one else can see them? This isn’t because you are somehow more in tune with the ways of the world – it’s because half of the so-called problems in your life are completely self-created. Running to your friends and family for support time and time again, people begin to acknowledge that it’s nothing more than a figment of your imagination. Guess what – No one cares about your imaginary problems! Time to face your insecurities and get over yourself.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
You’ve got an ego, oh man do you have an ego! You aren’t just confident in yourself, you believe you’re God’s gift to the world but let me clarify something for you – You are the only one that believes that you belong up on that pedestal. Your ego is impossible to live with, which is likely why you rarely even see a second date. Time to open your eyes and realize that the world, shockingly, doesn’t revolve around you.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Holding yourself to a high standard can be a good thing. If used properly, it can drive you to become the best version of yourself, and yet why do you struggle to maintain relationships and keep a job? You’ve crossed the line. You’re no longer just ‘trying to be better,’ you’re a perfectionist. You refuse to settle for anything less than perfect. Newsflash: Life’s not perfect!
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Your relationships mean everything to you, including your friends, family and the love of your life. When life gets hard, you know that they will always be there. Always… That’s the problem. You literally can’t handle anything in life without someone’s help, taking dependency to a whole new level. Why do you think people keep running for the hills leaving you high and dry? Time to grow up and learn how to stand on your own two feet already.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
You live a life of passion, refusing to conform to the world and follow the rules. You’d think, considering the way that you choose to live your life, that you possess a great deal of self-confidence but that’s not the case. Instead, your lack of self-esteem leaves you taking offense to everything and anything. Contrary to what you may believe, people aren’t actually out to attack you personally. In fact, more often than not, they really don’t care about you at all, you’re just reading into things and creating offense where it doesn’t exist. Get over yourself already!
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
You are incredibly confident in everything that you do, I will give you that, but here’s a frightening fact that I know you’ll have a hard time swallowing – You are not always right! The crazy part about it all is that you actually believe that you know everything like you’re the keeper of all knowledge in this life. Try opening your mind up to the idea that there may be even one person out there in the world that just MAY have a little more knowledge than you on a subject. I know, it’s a wild thought…
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Were you aware that everyone in your life walks around on eggshells in your presence at all times? You don’t just express your emotions from time to time – you have mood swings that rival even the biggest diva. You are like a ticking time bomb and no one knows when you’re going to go off. The hard truth about the situation is that no one wants to be your careful handler. It’s easier to walk away – no, run away – and maintain a safe distance. Do you even want real relationships? If so, it’s time to get your emotions under control.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
You have a happy-go-lucky outlook on the world around you, keeping an open mind at everything that you encounter but let’s be real… You believe EVERYTHING, regardless of how ridiculous and unbelievable it may be. Can one person really be that naïve? Do you not know how to think for yourself? The next time you’re about to chase down some insane notion, landing yourself in trouble, yet again, take a step back and try to use your head.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Do you actually have a spine, or are you really that big of a pushover? Do you even have your own personality? You are so busy trying to be what you think everyone wants you to be that you have lost all understanding of who you really are. Here’s the unfortunate part – the people around you can sense that something’s ‘off’ and they don’t believe you either. Take some time and figure yourself out. Until you do, no one’s going to care whether you’re coming or going.
