A little-known fact about astrology is that you can actually control your zodiac sign!
It is a misconception that you have your destiny set in stone. There are no mystical energies that are controlling you like a puppet.
The zodiac chart you were born with is just a blueprint. Like the drawings, an architect makes for a house. You are totally free to make any rearrangements and alterations you desire!
Each zodiac sign is a facet of what some call a single central consciousness
Part of your mission on earth is to rectify the chart you were born with, in order to achieve inner harmony.
So let’s look at all the different zodiac signs, and see what they need to work at to rectify what doesn’t work. You can learn to use the positive traits of these zodiac signs to bring good into the world.
Aries can develop a bad reputation for being impatient and impulsive. Aries people can also exhibit quite a fierce temper. But this personality type holds you back in life.
How to control negative Aries traits:
Break down your goals into smaller steps. You can satiate your Aries impatience when wishing to achieve your goals this way. You get the mini reward of fulfilling each individual goal, on the path to the ultimate goal you want to reach.
To curb impulsiveness, visualize the eventual scenario that could unfold. Imagine worse case scenarios. Imagine the best case scenarios. Jot down a pros and cons list.
Aries people hate it when they’re told to calm down and count to ten. You are like a firecracker when your fuse is lit. If someone incites your wrath, launch your firecracker in the opposite direction. Go for a run, smack a punching bag.
Taurus can develop a bad reputation for being stubborn and lazy. Taurus people also can be quite gluttonous. But this personality type holds you back in life.
How to control negative Taurus traits:
A Taurus person doesn’t have to struggle with stubbornness. Take time to understand that you have just one of many infinite perspectives on life. Remember the story of the blind men and the elephant. One was certain an elephant was like a tree stump, the other was certain it was similar to a snake. Neither were correct, but joining their perspectives together would show them the truth.
Promise yourself moments of lazy indulgence, and see them like goals. Diarize them. and fill in the gaps with what you need to get done. No-one will ever accuse you of being lazy ever again!
You are a sensual person, and pleasing your senses is your favorite past-time. Similar to the previous point, you could allow specific times where you can indulge. Promise yourself a chocolate chip cookie once an hour. You can do it!
Gemini can develop a bad reputation for being superficial, and a gossip. Gemini people can also appear two-faced. But this personality type holds you back in life.
How to control negative Gemini traits:
Gemini people are totally capable of depth; it is just you become distracted easily! The world is a magical and curious place when you are Gemini. Try to focus on how each individual person in your life is uniquely magical and curious. They are an entire universe. You won’t stand accused of being superficial any longer if you take the time to focus on the complexity of others.
You have a bad reputation as a chatterbox, all information is exciting and you are overflowing with it.
But this frightens people when you overflow with information about other people. Before you open
your mouth, imagine the consequences of what you say. This should help you keep damaging gossip to yourself.
People can feel like they don’t know who they are meeting each time they cross paths with a Gemini. This can feel like a hard trait to deal with, as Gemini represents twins. To overcome it, try to be conscious of being empathetic.
Cancer can develop a bad reputation for being defensive and moody. Cancer people can also appear really clingy. But this personality type holds you back in life.
How to control negative Cancer traits:
Tell a Cancer person that they are too defensive, and you will watch them become really defensive! You feel like you are constantly guarding your most sensitive parts. You sense threats everywhere. But there are fewer threats than you realize. Try to see the light and the good in others.
Being ruled by the moon, your emotions swing around like a cat swung by its tail. It can be quite a rollercoaster ride. It is a good idea to keep a mood chart. You will see patterns emerge, and you can become pre-emptive.
Cancer is like a mother bear and can cling onto friends and family for dear life. You feel responsibility for everyone. The classic adage “If you love it set it free, if it loves you back, it will come back” applies to you. This can be painful, but you will be able to work out who are the people who will stay, and you will no longer feel the need to cling.
Leo can develop a bad reputation for being vain and arrogant. Leo people can also appear really dominating. But this personality type holds you back in life.
How to control negative Leo traits:
Ruled by the sun, Leo shines very brightly. Sometimes this feels too bright in other people’s eyes. This can be mistaken for vanity. Use your light to highlight other people’s beauty. Being a spotlight for other people will serve you well.
You naturally always want to take the lead. Being in charge feels like it is your natural position in life. However, the best leaders that have ever existed, rule from behind. They are able to bring out the best in everyone, and that is their true superior talent.
Virgo can develop a bad reputation for being judgmental and a prude. Virgo people can also appear really cold. But this personality type holds you back in life.
How to control negative Virgo traits:
You have a habit of seeing the world in black and white, and therefore most things seem obvious to you. However, the people you share the world with may see more gray or the complete color spectrum. Your black and white judgments work better as a frame sometimes.
And you know that deep down your coldness is a way to protect yourself. Your prudishness is a way to remain untainted by the chaos of the world. Indulge in moments of chaos to get a taste of the bigger picture. If it weren’t for the chaos, there would be no point for your desire to order. You owe it a debt of gratitude.
Libra can develop a bad reputation for being indecisive and fickle. Libra people can also appear really critical. But this personality type holds you back in life.
How to control negative Libra traits:
As the scales of the zodiac, you crave balance and harmony. You can spend a lot of time weighing decisions. And many times you end up dissatisfied with which decision you eventually came to. But what if there are no wrong decisions?
Finding inner harmony first will act as a core balance for the rest of your life. Rather than trying to constantly measure everything on the outside, turn it inside. Let the outside world be. Once you achieve inner harmony, the rest of the world will fall into place.
Scorpio can develop a bad reputation for being possessive and secretive. Scorpio people can appear to be very vengeful. But this personality type holds you back in life.
How to control negative Scorpio traits:
Scorpio feels very intensely, and you feel things in fine microscopic details. Any upset to your world can feel like a meticulously built house of cards has toppled. You guard people and possessions like a dungeon master.
But you have probably noticed that this can backfire. “If you love it set it free, if it loves you back, it will return” needs to become your motto. What you truly possess will remain in your possession.
To avoid taking revenge, take the time to draw up the bigger picture. Sometimes the most satisfaction comes from your enemies experiencing so much success that they move far away from you. This way they will never bother you again!
Sagittarius can develop a bad reputation for being tactless and fickle. Sagittarius people can appear uncaring at times. But this personality type holds you back in life.
How to control negative Sagittarius traits:
Sagittarius is the eternal optimist. Which sounds good on paper. But it can mean you don’t take other people’s pain seriously. Optimism is like a light in the darkness. But people who have been dwelling in darkness need time to adjust to the light. So slowly turn your optimism up with a dimmer switch.
Your love of adventure can sometimes extend to people. Which is sad when you feel an adventure with someone finishes, and you head off on another one with someone else. Keep your adventures to the great outdoors, and trips overseas.
Capricorn can develop a bad reputation for being shy and pessimistic. Capricorn people also can be so goal orientated that people feel stepped on. But this personality type holds you back in life.
How to control negative Capricorn traits:
Most of your ambition for success comes from your shyness. I know that sounds absurd. When you avoid other people, you spend time keeping yourself busy. And this can lead to your success.
The people who support you need to hear your gratitude for their input. So realize your shyness is holding your back in this regard.
Capricorn pessimism is legendary. Eeyore was probably a Capricorn. And telling you to look at the cup as half full will probably just make you mad.
Become a possibility thinker. This way you can refuse to think positively and refuse to think negatively simultaneously. The future is unknown. Let that thought excite you, and put a smile on your face.
Aquarius can develop a bad reputation for being unpredictable and aloof. Aquarius people can also appear extremist. But this personality type holds you back in life.
How to control negative Aquarius traits:
Your unpredictability can unnerve people. Renowned for being 6 steps of everyone else, you probably find yourself 6 steps ahead of yourself too. But you are comfortable with your unpredictability. Become conscious of the world around you which actually wants to follow your lead.
Aquarius doesn’t like getting bogged down with emotions. After all, they drag you backward, or cause you to stagnate. And this is antithetical to an Aquarius.
Your extremism is also from a place of pure intention. All your actions tend to flow from a place of humanitarianism. However, sometimes you forget the human part when achieving humanitarian goals. Take time out to keep a human perspective.
Pisces can develop a bad reputation for being flaky and escapist. Pisces people can also appear too idealistic. But this personality type holds you back in life.
How to control negative Pisces traits:
You aren’t really flaky. You are just porous. You flow outside the box that everyone else finds themselves trapped in. So find places where you can “pool” with people. Flow through those places. Just be careful not to stagnate there.
You are idealistic as you have dreamed of alternative places and ways of living. This seems unrealistic to many people who see the world in black and white. Allow these black and white people to frame your visions. Work with them, rather than ignore them.
You also have a habit of running when things are too pressured. Start to think in terms of flowing instead. Water is flexible even under pressure, and you’ll surprise yourself how capable you really are.
