Star Signs - Expectation vs Reality

When you think of an Aries person, how do you imagine them? Probably with a bad temper and fiery as hell! When you think of a Scorpio, how do you picture them? Most likely aggressive and secretive. We have ideas of what each star sign is (and a lot of the time they are what we think) but there is also a lot more to every one of them.


Aries are most commonly described as courageous, determined and honest, which they are. However, the reality is, Aries are just as impulsive as they are determined. They react in the moment without thinking about their words or actions. This doesn't have to be a bad thing though, as when an Aries wants something, they go out and get it. As an Aries, you will probably identify as half determined and half impulsive!


Taurus are often characterised as down-to-earth and practical and a lot of the time they are. On the other had, Taurus are big dreamers and often find themselves lost in thought for a portion of the day. They have big ideas and because of this, sometimes can't find the way to their goals. If you are a Taurus, you probably struggle with being part practical and part dreamer.


Geminis are seen as natural chatterboxes. When they get started on a topic they love, you're not going to be able to shut them up! However, where does this talkative nature come from? In reality, Geminis can often be afraid of silences and will talk and talk to fill any awkwardness. If a Gemini likes your company, they will feel very comfortable talking, but if they don't, they will just start a conversation about anything to fill the silence.


Cancers are described as emotional and because of this can be seen as weak, but this is far from the truth. Cancers are one of the toughest of all the zodiac and are extremely resilient. They can handle almost any situation thrown at them with determination. Cancers have tremendous mental strength which people sometimes underestimate. If you are a Cancerian, then you know just how strong you truly are.


Leos are characterised as being quite self-obsessed and only interested in their own projects. However, Leos actually have really big hearts. The only problem is they sometimes have a difficult time expressing how they feel. Leos have such a warm aura around them and when they love, they love hard! They want to give the world to their friends and family and do so in a very caring way.


Virgos are naturally practical and hardworking people. They like to have order in their lives, but they are often very critical of others and themselves. Virgos can get caught up in the details and forget that there is a much better bigger picture. If you are a Virgo, then you know how tough on yourself you can be. Being hardworking is great, but don't forget to give yourself a break every once in a while.


Libras are sometimes described as air-headed and preppy, however this is a big misconception. Libras just want everyone to get along and in doing so can make people think that they don't have any opinions. In reality, Libras just don't want to cause any drama and thrive the best when their lives are calm. If you are a Libra then you understand what it's like to bite your tongue because you want to keep the peace.


Scorpios are characterised as being sensual and not ones to be crossed. This is definitely true, but there is a lot more to them. Scorpios actually feel emotions so intensely that it sometimes causes them to struggle expressing themselves. On one day they love everything, on the next they hate everything! If you are a Scorpio then you know just how tough it is to feel emotions so deeply.


Sagittarius are naturally positive and optimistic. They are passionate and love to have their freedom to explore the world we live in. However, they can often be impatient and insensitive, which can make them think people's minds work too slow. Sagittarius have to learn to accept that everyone is different and to be more tolerant of others. If you are a Sagittarius, you know what it's like to want your freedom, but feel as if you are constantly tied down by other people.


Capricorns are described as motivated people that will do whatever it takes to get the job done. They will work tirelessly throughout the night to achieve their goals. This is true, but in reality, they love to lounge around in their sweatpants as much as anyone else. If you are a Capricorn, you know the constant inner battle between getting work done and watching one more episode on Netflix!


Aquarius are characterised as thinking of themselves highly and loving the sound of their own voices. However, what is the reason for this? In reality, Aquarius think of themselves so highly because they're secretly worried no one else will. If you are an Aquarius, you know the feeling of being stressed that no one will understand who you are, but you're quirkiness is actually the reason everyone loves you.


Pisces are one of the most misunderstood signs of the zodiac. They are naturally artistic and dreamy people, however, they are also quite passive-aggressive when someone disagrees with them. Pisces often struggle accepting other people's opinions and aren't afraid to tell them! They are a sweet and loving sign, but they like to be in charge and prefer to see the world through their own eyes.
