The 12 Zodiac Signs – Stereotype vs. Reality

 

Have you ever heard people calling Capricorns social beings and Libras being always in a dilemma? There have been many rumors and stereotypical beliefs regarding the different zodiacs. But, are they true? We all have different zodiac signs and are different from each other.

Let us look into how each of the zodiacs is different from what people make them out to be.

Aquarius

Stereotypic Belief

Aquarius are believed to be cold, detached, and hyper-rational individuals. They are like robots – working and slogging on and have no shred of emotion.

Reality

Aquarius are philanthropic, but unfortunately, they are believed to be distant and cold. They are not robots – they do have feelings too. However, they tend not to show too much of their emotional side in front of others as it makes them uncomfortable and feel vulnerable.

Pisces

Stereotypic Belief

Pisces always try to run out of messy and complex circumstances instead of solving them. They are professional drunkards, drowning in pessimism and sadness.

Reality

Pisces are individuals who live on both the material and spiritual planes simultaneously – they are not running off to escape, but rather to balance their body, mind, and spirit. If you catch them sitting idle, they are working for a higher purpose. Your thoughts and emotions may make them retreat to themselves as they are extremely sensitive to them.

Aries

Stereotypic Belief

Impulsive, impatient, and careless – these words are often used to describe an Aries. They act at the spur of the moment and accidentally end up hurting themselves or someone close.

Reality

Aries are the life of a gathering – they instigate and inspire others to take action. Aries are born explorers, and always take the first step towards new ideas. With age, they become wise and knowledgeable, but their youthful nature never leaves them.

Taurus

Stereotypic Belief

The stubborn and arrogant one in the group.

Reality

Taurus are indeed stubborn – they have the bull’s strength to endure and persevere in their steps. Though they may be a bit slow at the beginning, they are unstoppable once they get started. Maybe your advice falls short on them, but despite obstacles, Taurus can stand strong for their beliefs.

Gemini

Stereotypic Belief

They seem to have multiple personalities and their words never seem straightforward and easy to understand. Their version of the truth is always changing.

Reality

Geminis are inquisitive individuals and are always exploring different possibilities – so of course, their words are constantly. They can adapt to any environment and mix with many people. They can look at things from a different perspective, and their truth may not be your truth.

Cancer

Stereotypic Belief

The moody and sensitive crab takes others’ opinions too personally.

Reality

Cancer the crab is an emotional creature and feels deeply for everyone. They feel their surroundings – the highs and the lows – and change accordingly. Cancers may get stuck in their emotional downtime, but they will surely get back up soon. They go with the flow, ruled by the ever-changing moon.

Leo

Stereotypic Belief

Their pride and ego are second to none. They are nothing more than narcissistic show-offs.

Reality

Leos possess unmatchable strength and are born rulers. They sway the masses not by their strength, but by words and expressions. Leos believe in the truth and will always take the centre stage in emergencies.

Virgo

Stereotypic Belief

Virgos are clean-freak, and their cleanliness makes others feel uncomfortable.

Reality

Virgo is the servant in Astrology, responsible for creating order from chaos and cleaning after the others. They are pure of heart, and always simplify and clean out the excess. They like to keep everything organized so that they can work efficiently.

Libra

Stereotypic Belief

Libras are always in a dilemma and their indecisiveness can be a real pain.

Reality

Libra is the judge – they always weigh all their options before deciding on one. Though their choice may take a lot of time and their choices will always be the best. Their decisions always show a balance of harmony and justice. Though they take time to commit, their commitments are set in stone and can only be described as unwavering.

Scorpio

Stereotypic Belief

Always hyper-active and never calms down.

Reality

Scorpio is the sign of sexual desires, death, and the underworld. It is their habit to go beyond what is shown – they try to decipher what is hidden and show the world facts that others are too afraid to acknowledge. They may seem grim and need to be reminded of the bright side of things.

Sagittarius

Stereotypic Belief

These people are always here for fun. The moment things start getting serious, they end up looking for an escape.

Reality

Sagittarius the archer is the adventurer – they explore the unknown to know more. They love to travel as it shows their freedom and is food for their adventurous spirit. They can only be tied to a place if their thirst for adventure is quenched.

Capricorn

Stereotypic Belief

Capricorns are ruthless social climbers and will not even think twice before using their allies as stepping stones for their success.

Reality

Though Capricorns seem to be stepping on others for their ascent to success, they actually have a profound inner life. Throughout their lives, they get ready to take the mystical and spiritual path for the later part of their lives.
