Life is so busy, and we don’t have nearly enough time to really sit down and talk with our close friends and family. By the time you’re finally able to have that coffee date or dinner with a dear friend, you spend most of the time just catching up.
Sometimes the things we really want the people in our lives to know only come out in times of stress (like in the middle of a heated argument). But based on your zodiac sign, here’s the things people really want you to know.
Aries (March 21 – April 19): You have so many ideas and are great on follow-through. But other people have ideas too, and it would be great if occasionally you’d let them express them. Why not consider helping them make their dreams a reality?
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Whoa there, Mr. or Ms. Bull-headed. You need to speak up. It’s all very well and fine to commune with nature, but you need to talk more with people. The silent treatment gets you nowhere.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): If you’re going to make a promise, could you at least keep it? You’re a super-fun person, but the flakiness needs to stop. No one is going to invite you anywhere anymore if you keep blowing them off.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): You need to keep your neediness in check. It’s not that people don’t care, but it’s exhausting having to deal with all the highs and lows of your emotions. Try a little self-care for starters.
Leo (July 23 – August 22): You need to know that the world doesn’t revolve around you! I know — shocker. We love you, and think you’re amazing, but we also have our own lives. Try to listen to other people, not just yourself, talk.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22): You’re way too hard on yourself and need to back off the constant criticizing. You’re an incredibly wonderful being, and you need to appreciate it.
Libra (September 23 – October 22): We so appreciate your dedication to justice and balance. However, you need to go balls out and make bolder and quicker decisions. The constant wavering back and forth is annoying.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): We know your gifts are many (especially when it comes to sex), but please dial back on the possessiveness and the controlling. You freak people out.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21): Could you slow your roll? Your need to always keep moving is fantastic … if you just committed a crime and are trying to get out of town. But it’s frustrating when someone is trying to connect with you on something more than a superficial level.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): We’re not all as perfect as you, so could you give the rest of us imperfect beings a little slack?
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): Is it cold in here, or is it just you? Admit it, you can be a little detached sometimes. Why not let more people in, so that they can see what a unique and spectacular person you are?
Pisces (February 19 – March 20): You’re such an artist and always do things for others, but you can be somewhat scatterbrained. Try to focus on the here and now a little more often.
