The Reason You’re Not As Happy As You Should Be, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Are you unhappy because you’re settling in life, or is it because you refuse to forgive? For most of us, the reason we’re not living our best life can be narrowed down to one thing, and guess what? We can tell exactly what that one thing is based on your zodiac sign.

  1. Aquarius You keep everyone at a distance and that’s because you don’t really believe in people, so you keep secrets and listen to your own advice over others. And while this makes you independent, it also makes you hard and closed-off. People have to work overtime to be a part of your life, and not most have the time or energy. You’re alone and that’s why you’re unhappy. You don’t really feel supported by anyone but that’s because you don’t let people in.
  2. Pisces Your brain is always running and you can never seem to focus on one thing fully. You’re indecisive and that makes it hard for you to hold onto one thing, whether it’s a job or a significant other. You flip flop, and even though you want the best for yourself, you won’t achieve it unless you settle down and focus.
  3. Aries No matter what’s going on in your life, you always find a way to make things harder. You’re too impatient and stubborn to let things play out naturally. Not to mention, you expect too much out of yourself and other people, which is why you’re always disappointed and at odds with the universe. The sooner you realize you’re not always right, the better your life will get.
  4. Taurus You’re too focused on materials. You’re under the impression that things can make you happy, which is why you spend your time trying to get everything. Stop doing that! Try to focus on the present and what really makes you happy. Your friends, your family, your video games, whatever. You’ll feel better, calmer once you stop trying to chase the wrong things.
  5. Gemini You can be manipulative. You work people, which isn’t always horrible but it usually blows up in your face. The problem is you’re always trying to figure people out and that’s because you think people are always trying to figure you out. They’re not. Stop letting your insecurities make you anxious. Stop telling people what they want to hear. Work on pleasing yourself instead.
  6. Cancer You go from 0 to 100 quickly, especially when you feel offended… which happens more than you’d like to admit. You’re an emotional being and you put a lot of energy into people. Unfortunately, people disappoint and when they do, you take it personally. You curl up into a ball and cry for days. The thing is, you can’t let other people define your happiness. You’re a fantastic person and if someone lets you down, screw them!
  7. Leo Most people don’t think you have anything to be unhappy about. You’re confident, vivacious, and full of hopes and dreams, but you’re also a little lazy. You have goals, but you don’t always put in the work to achieve them. Instead, you take the easy way out, which is usually still a good option even if you know it’s not the best one. You have endless potential. Imagine what you’d achieve if you put in the effort.
  8. Virgo It’s hard for you to pick yourself up when you’re down. You can’t handle any sort of criticism without feeling like an ugly, disappointing failure. You’re too strong and intelligent to let outside opinions halt your success. That doesn’t mean you should turn cold, though. Keep putting yourself out there and taking risks. Just make sure you’re practicing self-love so you can better handle rejection if it comes.
  9. Libra You’re charming, sweet, and oh so romantic, but you’re also indecisive. You spend more time weighing the pros and cons than actually putting in the work. It doesn’t help that you’re a little lazy. If you went with your gut and stopped overanalyzing everything, you’d be happier. You wouldn’t be a ball of stress all the time and life would feel easier.
  10. Scorpio What’s keeping you unhappy is your intense jealousy. It’s not that you don’t trust people, you’re just obsessed with claiming things as yours. You want everyone to be loyal. That’s why you’re constantly keeping an eye out to ensure they are. And if they’re not? You seek revenge. You need to stop acting so childish, Scorpio. Accept that nothing belongs to you so you can stop trying to control everything.
  11. Sagittarius One of the best things about you is your honesty. You don’t BS people and that does you well in most aspects of your life. However, it can push people away. Sometimes, your delivery is a little too raw and people get offended. Thankfully, this isn’t the hardest thing to work on. You just need to pay attention to your audience. Do you have an overly sensitive friend? Don’t scream and shout at her. Instead, choose your words carefully and practice delivering information that’s clear and not combative.
  12. Capricorn You don’t easily forgive people, and that’s left you with very few friends. It’s no wonder you’re unhappy with how small your circle has become over the years. You drop people without reason and you don’t work to keep your relationships strong. If someone upsets you, you’re done. No questions asked. The problem with that is one day you’ll be left alone. If you don’t learn how to forgive others, it’ll always be you against the world.
