THE SIGNS: EXPLAINING STEREOTYPES
*can work with rising signs as well
ARIES: why are they always angry? aries people just care, a little too much sometimes. there is a lot of fire and passion in their sign and they have a hard time expressing their emotions which results into their anger. they just don’t know how else to project themselves. aries people are also known to be, deep down, insecure. because of this, they use anger to make them seem strong and to mask their lack of confidence or pain inside. their insecurity derives from the desire to be the best.
TAURUS: why are they lazy/apathetic? the thing about taurus people is they like comfort. they want a comfortable life with very little problems, and would avoid conflict and issues if they can. they may seem like they don’t care about things, or may not go out of their way to aim too high only because they don’t want to have to bother with the issues that come along the way. if they are happy with how their life is, they wouldn’t want to risk losing it. being an earth sign means they are very grounded and yearn for stability, and anything that can throw them off can seem a little scary.
GEMINI: why are they so two-faced? geminis seem to always change their mind about people. they will criticize a person to you, then the next day you see them getting along with them. it is not that geminis are fake, it’s just they have a lot of patience with people and offer many opportunities. they enjoy having fun, and if the “problems” the gemini complains about aren’t that bad, they can set that aside and enjoy their time with the person they were once talking about. if a gemini is hot and cold with you, don’t take it personally. they are easily bored and need plenty of people to entertain them in terms of friendship.
CANCER: why are they such crybabies? it is well known that cancers are very emotional people. their emotions derive from how sentimental they are. they treasure memories and good times, but because they want it so badly they may become sad that they cannot have it, or that those times are gone. cancers can be influenced by their emotions, it just comes from being a water sign. they can be carried away by the current of events that happen in their life. small mishaps that happen to a cancer can bring them down because they want to just be content. this is what taurus wants to avoid. they have expectations for the world because of the memories they experience, and when these expectations do not match with reality, it can make a cancer emotional.
LEO: why are they so arrogant? leos are very hard-working people. if they want something they will do what they can to have it. because of their hard work, it is justified for them to feel proud of themselves. they are fun-loving and down to earth people which attracts people to their energy. their popularity can play a role in their behavior, but they never mean to bring people down or make others feel small. they are just proud of themselves and what they’ve accomplished.
VIRGO: why are they such clean-freaks? i actually don’t really understand this stereotype tbh lol… but anyways, virgos are thoughtful people. they are quiet and observant, which could stem the idea that they are boring. virgos are also earth signs, making them fond of stability like taurus and capricorn. because of this, virgos would want to strive to have their lives organized and kept together without many problems. the perception of being boring and their organization and simplicity on the outlook of life can add together to the stereotype of them being “clean-freaks”.
LIBRA: why are they such flirts? libras aren’t really flirts, they’re just charming. they’re a very sociable sign and have lots of charisma. they are likable which can make people think they are flirts. they make people feel special because of how well they speak and how well they work people. libras don’t do this intentionally and don’t always realize how they make people feel or how they come off as.
SCORPIO: why are scorpios mysterious and sexual? i laugh at this so much being a scorpio moon.. being mysterious comes from the fact that scorpios would rather not have much of their personal life, feelings, and general information exposed to the public. they do not want to feel vulnerable with their feelings and thoughts because they are deep and well-thought out. they feel strongly, and will not have any superficial thoughts or emotions. because of this they do not want to be judged for having the feelings they have. the sexual aspect comes from how passionate scorpios can be. passion can be confused with many things, such as lust, ambition, or love. scorpios embody either or all of those three things, just depends on the person.
SAGITTARIUS: why do they have commitment issues? sags can commit to something, they just have some requirements for whatever that thing is. sags do not like high maintenance people, simply because it’s too much work. sags are not the kind of people to judge others and criticize, but they know what they want and will avoid the things they don’t want. sags don’t like things that can hold them back or bring them down, and if they feel that someone is like that towards them they can shy away or avoid the person. they can commit, it just depends on what they’re committing to.
CAPRICORN: why are they heartless workaholics? they are known for being ambitious, which is why they will not stop working until they get what they want. this can apply to work, school, relationships, or even video games. capricorns aren’t really heartless, they are quite considerate of other people and think a lot of others, just not the way that others would like to be thought of. capricorns can be very self-focused because they believe that no one can take care of them but themselves, which is why they cannot always think or consider other people and others’ emotions. despite this, capricorns can have their eyes opened and if are told they are hurting someone by not noticing how they feel, capricorn will reconsider their actions. they just need a little push to understand and consider those around them, but that doesn’t mean they are heartless.
AQUARIUS: why are they such hipsters? aquarius is a pretty unique sign. their symbol is the only of the zodiac that isn’t an animal, it’s actually water. and even though they are represented by water, they are an air sign. aquarius people are very innovative, they are ahead of the game and may take interest in things that others don’t. they like to enjoy things for themselves, and would not like to be influenced by too much media or extreme trends.
PISCES: why are they such clueless daydreamers? the clueless stereotype can come from the fact that pisces people don’t always take hints very well. they like things to be straightforward so they won’t get confused with all the thoughts and possibilities that can come to them. pisces think a lot, about anything, which drive the daydreaming stereotype. pisces are known to be sweet people because of how much they think about others. they are “clueless” because they don’t want to make any wrong assumptions of anything and would rather know the full story before guessing.
