Having standards is an important factor in your wellbeing, but we all have one or two traits that hurt our happiness, even if we believe that they’re present in order to save us. This is what your zodiac sign can tell you about what you need to look past to ensure prosperity.
Aquarius (January 20th-February 18th):
If you ever want to be truly happy, you must move on from the idea that everyone in your life has to think exactly like you. The disagreements you have in your relationships will prevent a loss of passion, and therefore you should actually cherish a difference of opinion.
Pisces (February 19th-March 20th):
You have to learn to take light criticism, which means you have to look past a potential partner’s occasional judgements. You cannot be content in life with a constant fear of being hurt, and the only way to get rid of such fear is to accept that you sometimes do the wrong thing.
Aries (March 21st-April 19th):
Your adventurous side is admirable, but you need to take it easy when it begins to affect how you see those you care about. Romantic or not, you can’t force your active lifestyle on everyone – some people simply enjoy relaxation.
Taurus (April 20th-May 20th):
Even though you’ve convinced yourself that you need a routine in order to stay sane, you have to learn to disregard this same need for structure when it comes to others. Welcome spontaneous people into your life in order to get out of your comfort zone every once in a while.
Gemini (May 21st-June 20th):
Although conversation is extremely important to you, you cannot expect every exchange to be earth-shattering. Learn to accept that sometimes you and the people you care about have to address the superficial as a way to unwind amidst all the chaos in the world.
Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd):
You regard your emotional connections extremely high, but this doesn’t mean you should assume that people will get close to you right away. You have to look past one’s distant demeanor at first if you ever truly want to build connections with new people.
Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd):
Part of your attitude stems from the fact that you think you know best. You’ll never be happy if you hold people to crazy standards.
Virgo (August 23rd-September 22nd):
For you, working hard is key in every aspect of your life. However, to achieve true happiness you have to understand that not everyone operates on the same intellectual level. There are some things you just can’t analyze, and that’s OK.
Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd):
You absolutely need to learn to forgive those who have wronged you. Carrying a grudge actually makes you seem immature, and holding on to anger won’t contribute to your happiness. It might seem like the right thing to do for your strength, but it will leave you feeling relentless.
Scorpio (October 23rd-November 21st):
You can’t write people off who you believe are lying to you. Sometimes you just have to disregard your instincts in order to foster relationships with people who care about you. Part of this includes understanding that lying happens, and you can’t let it ruin your life.
Sagittarius (November 22nd-December 21st):
In order for you to be truly happy, you have to crush your idea of “clingy” and replace it with “interested.” You’ve assigned warning signs to clingy people, but you need to realize that these people are simply interested in getting to know you.
Capricorn (December 22nd-January 19th):
You have to look past the mistakes people make if you ever want to maintain strong relationships. People will quickly pick up on your tendency to expect the worst, and this will lead them in the opposite direction. If you cannot overlook mistakes, you will only ever rely on yourself.
