They're prone to childish remarks when they get their feelings hurt as well.

Taurus

Taurus is possessive, materialistic, and sometimes vain. They sometimes need to be forcefully taught the golden rule. They're stubborn and can be overly self-indulgent and lazy.

Taurus can get way too into superficial things, whether it's personal vanity over their looks or just an obsession with having all the newest and most expensive stuff on the market.

Gemini

Gemini are like a few different personalities rolled into one. A real grab bag, if you will. You never know what you're going to get. They enjoy tons of different interests and tend to consider themselves the master of all of them.

Geminis love to talk so much that you can barely get a word in. Geminis are interested in so many different things that they have difficulty committing to just one.

Gemini tends toward arrogance and cockiness. They think they know it all and they aren't shy about it.

They can also be unreliable, not necessarily the person you want to depend on in a pinch

Cancers are known to be nurturing and affectionate, but this also means that they are extremely emotional and sensitive.

Cancers are moody (they are crabs, after all). They are cautious and timid to the point where it's very difficult to get them to move out of their comfort zone.

Cancers are very sensitive and easy to offend. Sorry if that offends you!

Leo

Leo tends to be charming and lovable, but they often charm and love themselves the most. They demand attention and will try to be the center of it at all times.

There's no great way to put it, Leo is an attention addict. For Leo, everything revolves around them. They've never met a mirror they don't love!

If they start feeling ignored, they will throw a tantrum.

Virgo

Virgo zodiacal symbol. Astrology, horoscope sign, Zodiac character

Be careful when you're hanging out with a Virgo, because they tend to be much more judgmental than the other signs.

They're perfectionists, so even so much as a crooked smile can set them off and have them gossiping.

They tend to be judgmental and pessimistic to the point where, when they're down, they think the world is going to end.

The Virgo has high standards. Incredibly high, unreasonable standards for everyone and everything in their life. They are perfectionists and they will judge you if you're not up to par.

Don't expect to see them beating themselves up over personal failings, though. In their own eyes, they're flawless and everyone else is slacking.

Libra

Libra is indecisive. They spend a lot of time preparing and studying for every little thing.

They're the kinds of people who stand in the grocery store with two bottles of ketchup carefully examining the labels. God just pick a f*cking thing and move on.

Libras take forever to make a decision because they have to weigh every possible option. They will do anything to keep the peace to the extent where they abandon their own values.

Libras are fascinated with beauty and will primp for hours before being ready to go out.

They panic at the thought of commitment and they aren't very good at keeping promises. They don't mean to be malicious, but they aren't loyal either.

Scorpio

Scorpio zodiacal symbol. Astrology, horoscope sign, Zodiac character

Hell hath no fury like a Scorpio scorned. They're passionate but tend to be manipulative and fiery. For them, bad moods are a baseline.

Scorpios are very unforgiving. If you wrong a Scorpio, they will make your life miserable. Scorpios can easily spiral down into darkness and despair.

This sign has a temper of epic proportions and when something gets under their skin, they will over react with a fury unlike any other.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius zodiacal symbol. Astrology, horoscope sign, Zodiac character

Sagittarians are well known for being blunt, and their bluntness borders on tasteless at times. They tend to be know-it-alls and are easily bored.

Sagittarius are very self-righteous and often lack good social etiquette. They don't pick up cues when they're being rude or offensive and they simply don't care much about tact or subtlety.

This sign will tear you to shreds if they find a chink in your armor and then they'll claim it was for your own good.

Capricorn

Capricorns are controllers. They don't really go with the flow. They often use people for their own benefit and thrive on gossip and negativity.

Pisces

So, What exactly Is Your dark side?

We are all well-aware of our good side. It's the side of us that we show to people in public. It's the best of everything we are. It's what makes us shine as human beings. It's what we thrive for and aspire to be. But what is the dark side in you? It's not as simple as the opposite of what you like about yourself.

The dark side of your personality is often a rejected, ignored pile of emotions, situations, and phobias that you try to forget with all your might.Your dark side is what you hate most in yourself. It's your fear of failure, it's your extreme shyness or your unhealthy compulsions. Or maybe it's a drug or alcohol addiction or your horrible temper. Whatever it is, you can't wish it away no matter how hard you try.

Why Should You Accept Your Dark Side?

Most people's approach toward their dark side is to fight it or ignore it. Some religions and counseling techniques instruct you to destroy the darkness within yourself in order to live a happy life. In my opinion, this is an unhealthy approach because it causes you to split your personality in two rather than teaching you how to accept and use your dark side to your benefit.

Accepting your dark side has some definite advantages.

Do you feel like you're still searching for your life purpose? You won't believe what the science of Numerology can reveal about you!That's right, the numerology of your birth date, regardless of what month you were born, can reveal surprising information about your personality.

So How Do You Do It?

First, when you accept your dark side and realize that it is a part of who you are, all of the energy that you spend fighting it will suddenly be available for other purposes. By accepting that you are who you are, you will have access to a new source of personal power and you will have more energy to channel into building up what you like about yourself.

Act With Integrity

Second, when you accept your dark side, you take a big step toward inner wholeness and integrity. Acting with integrity means acting with all your being, not just following a moral code.Of course, following a moral code is a personal decision, but you can make that decision with integrity, with all your being.

Keeping yourself mentally separated: "I am a good person for doing this, but I am a bad person because I have this addiction," will put you to a state of constant mental disruption.We're not designed to act in a fragmented way. Rather, we're supposed to act as a whole unique person, with good and bad parts.

Find Out How To Start

And third, when you accept you have a dark side, you establish a starting point. You know who you are as a whole person and you can now begin the work to integrate the two sides of your personality.

You can understand that you're not only a hard-working, respectable person, but you are also the person who isn't perfect. This is who you are and it's time to accept it. The way to the light is through the darkness. Once you understand and accept your dark side, you can begin the inner work of reconciling your two sides and integrating both into a happy, healthy existence.

It won't happen overnight, but once it does, you will be able to fully accept who you are and move forward along your path in life.P.S. Has something come up that requires immediate answers in your life?

Depression From Loneliness

Psychological studies have spent a long time trying to understand the pain receptors that are activated during grief. They found that the loss of a loved one has specific depression symptoms, primarily loneliness, which then leads to other depressive symptoms.

In both kinds of losses (death or breakups), the grieving person has to relearn how to be in the absence of someone they shared a bond with and gave a lot of time to. Not being able to see them anymore, whether by circumstance or choice, can feel really isolating and lonely.

Constant Triggers In Routines

One of the hardest changes experienced in these losses is having to readapt to a whole new lifestyle. The longer the relationships before the losses, the harder it is to accustom to a daily life alone. A routine that was once taken for granted, or even mundane stops making sense, leaving the griever with a shattered sense of self.

Sometimes it's the smallest reminders that cause the greatest pains like having to go to the grocery store alone or walking past the favorite restaurant of a lost loved one. It's quite difficult to build a life from scratch.

Both Kinds Of Grief Impact The Physical Body

Both breakups and death can take a toll on the physical body. A grieving person will often experience trouble eating, trouble sleeping, low energy, and even panic attacks. Not to mention that each one of those systems will lead to its own effect like trouble sleeping will lead to headaches, nausea, and an ability to concentrate. These symptoms create a vicious cycle of pain.

The feeling of loss is not just emotional but also physical, which makes sense when thinking that the person we lost is no longer physically there. The creates a longing for their physical body to be able to hug it or feel its warmth once again.

A Loss Of The Future

One thing that breakups and death have in common is that no one really plans for them or can predict when they happen. No one enters a relationship thinking that it's just going to end. Usually, long-term plans are made together and when the person we made them with is gone, so is the hope we had of the future we had. Not only do we grieve the loss of that person but the loss of the future as well.

it becomes hard to live for tomorrow having no idea where it now leads ad it. Grief then creates a void and the grieving person feels like it's walking aimlessly, now lost in the vastity of the world. It takes time to then find hope in a new future.

If you're looking for more information on how this retrograde will take its toll on you specifically, then you'll need your own zodiac reading.

The Major Difference Between Death And Breakups: Ambiguous Grief

We have no choice when it comes to death. It's the inevitable part of our existence and we have no control over its timing. When we lose someone to death we have no choice but to say goodbye and continue knowing that they no longer are a part of our world. However, a breakup is a choice. This is a lot harder to express because even when we say goodbye, we then have to continue living knowing that the person we lost still walks among us, but that we no longer have the privilege of sharing life with them. The grief of a breakup is not only in having to say goodbye to a relationship that's now over and a person that's gone, but also in having to watch that very same person live on with us.

Grieving someone that is still alive in that way is known as ambiguous grief. It means that we're experiencing a loss because someone has changed or disappeared and are stuck in limbo between hoping that everything will return to normal and trying to grasp that life as we know it is also fading away.

Abandonment Grief

Experiencing grief can come with a complicated set of abandonment issues. Suddenly this person we had trusted to always be with us is gone, leaving us to figure life out alone. However, the abonnement is scarring when it is experienced through rejection. A breakup can actually feel traumatic and tap into insecurities and anxieties that date all the way back to childhood.

Suddenly we start expecting everyone who loves us to then also change their mind and leave us. In an attempt to protect ourselves from feeling that loss again, we can never attach fully again, and simply feel incomplete for a long time.

A Breakup Feels Like A Threat To Survival

Another reason that grief from a breakup is worse is that the brain processes the loss of a partner as a threat to survival This triggers biological changes because it gets the body ready for self-defense. In a state of emergency, It increases heart rate and blood pressure, decreases appetite, and increases oxygen to the brain to put the body on high alert.

It can even start over-analyzing experiences from the past to learn and prepare for the new perceived danger. This all makes the person feel like they have become obsessed with their ex, and that the only way they'll survive and feel better is if they can go back to the source of their attachment, and get their ex back. When they fail to, it worsens their abandonment anxiety.

Leads To Revenge Or Planning To Get Them Back Are

We as human beings are wired to connect. From the moment we're born we develop a deep need for attachment. As we get older we find people we connect with and attach ourselves to them. The attachment is even stronger when part of an intimate relationship as it becomes a primary attachment. When it's suddenly cut off, all the energy that was invested with it has no place to go and completely disrupt the biology of the brain.

To cope with this kind of grief, people resort to one of two methods before reaching acceptance. Either they try to execute revenge, which is just another way to keep holding on to the attachment while projecting their pain. Or, they desperately obsess over trying to get their ex back. Thankfully, the healing process and the stages of grief eventually all lead to acceptance.
