Common Zodiac Sign Stereotypes DEBUNKED



1. Aries


The misconception regarding Aries is that they are very aggressive, pushy and they're very hot-headed. Aries people are very laid back and very chilled, they are just very quickly angered. When dealing with stupid people, for example, or dealing with foolish situations, they can lose their cool very quickly. People also think that Aries people are incredibly impatient. However, Aries people can be very patient, but others push them to become restless and impatient.


Another misconception of Aries is that they are very active and that they are very sporty. I have met many Aries people who do not exercise and are actually lazy and not sporty whatsoever.


The last misconception about Aries is that they are fiercely independent. Aries people are very independent, and they are very capable of doing things on their own. However, Aries people are just as capable as everybody else to be in a long-term functioning relationship and to be happy in that relationship.


2. Taurus


The Taurus stereotype is that they are self-centered, greedy, and they love to eat. The reason why Taurus is viewed as self-centered is that Taurus people out of all the signs tend to love themselves more. Taurus people are very aware of themselves. They're very aware of their flaws, and they're also very aware of their strengths, however, because Venus rules Taurus people, they prefer to only focus on their strengths as opposed to where other signs focus on their own weaknesses. A Taurus person will not really show you their weaknesses because that is not what they're focusing on. They're trying to focus on the positive thing, which is their strengths. This can come across as selfish to some people, but it is not the case. From my experience, Taurus people are incredibly selfless when it comes to the people they love and will do anything for the people they love.


Another misconception about Taurus is that they love money and material things and are incredibly materialistic. You do need to bear in mind that Taurus is actually one of the most hardworking signs in the zodiac. Taurus is an earth sign, and Taurus will do whatever it takes to make sure the job is done because Taurus is so dedicated to what they do. They get rewards and get praised for what they do because they do a lot, and because they get these rewards for what they do, they spoil themselves because of the hard work they've done.


A Taurus person is incredibly aware of how much work, how much time and effort they've put into what it is that they have. The reason they're so indulgent, the reason they can come across as greedy and the reason Taurus people like to eat nice things, which is another stereotype, is because they've worked hard for those things, and they deserve to enjoy it. If you went through everything that a Taurus had to go through to get what they have, you would be quite proud and boastful.


3. Gemini


A common misconception about Gemini is that they are two-faced and that they cannot be trusted. Gemini is the sign of communication, and Gemini represents taking a particular bit of information and spreading it. The thing is Gemini's aren't in essence, two-faced. It is just in a Gemini's nature to spread information. If you don't want your information to be spread around, then rather don't tell it to a Gemini because that is what they inherently do. Because Gemini is symbolized by the twins, they have a dual nature. This means that a Gemini can take in information from one avenue and see it as the truth, and the Gemini is also able to take in information from another avenue and see that as the truth as well. Gemini does not necessarily like to stick to only one truth; that is why a Gemini will believe many different things. Because of this, it can seem like a Gemini is siding with another person. However, that is not the case. What the Gemini is just doing is listening to that person's story so that they can gain both perspectives about what happened. Geminis are not two-faced, Gemini's just prefer to gain all the information and all the facts regarding what's happening.
