Bad Habits by Sign

9 years ago

DM_Bad Habits.jpgWhether it's the 'me first' attitude of an Aries or the workaholic nature of a Capricorn, we all have annoying little habits that can drive our partner or friends crazy. If we know what we are getting in to in advance it's a lot easier to play nice and not allow someone's usual behavior to drive us away. So before you throw in the towel on your relationship or jump into a new one, read more about your partner's sign sun to know first hand what annoying little habits come with the package.

Aries: Always First in Line!Aggressive rams like to be first. To that end, they have a habit of pushing to the front of the line in everything they do - quite literally. While Aries' aggressiveness can lead to their successes, it can also compromise their relationships. Experts suggest tapping into the ram's more nurturing side. Give your Aries an animal or plant and see their selfishness subside.

Taurus: Too Trashy!Ever known a hoarder? Odds are good the person was a Taurus. Being surrounded by all of their worldly possessions gives bulls a sense of security, but for those who share their space, it's chaotic. To strike a happy medium, Taureans should go for storage systems that keep their stuff on display. Stacking baskets, glass jars, and open shelving can promote organization whilst letting the stubborn bull see the possessions that allow them to feel so at home.

Gemini: Chew on This!Whoever said idle hands are the devil's plaything was probably a Gemini. Since the twins like to keep their hands busy at all times, it's no surprise that they're the nail biters of the zodiac. So if you know a Gemini (or are a Gemini) who had a tendency to bite, get in on the knitting craze. Try carving or bead work. And for goodness sake, get manicures - even if you're a guy! Tending to your hands will help you keep nail gnawing temptation at bay.

Cancer: Sweet Surprise!Sure, they're some of the sweetest people in the zodiac... but how do you think Cancers got that way? Sugar of course! Perhaps to ward off crankiness, crabs love cookies, candy and ice cream. But while tempered indulgence is a-okay, too much dessert can take a toll on waist lines and energy levels. Experts say however, that what Crabs are really after is oral gratification. Gnawing on health snacks like dried fruit and sugarless gum should do the trick.

Leo: Showing You The Money!In fact, Leos show everyone the money - and that doesn't have to mean cash. Whatever the Lion's got is on display at center stage. And while it's only natural that a sign so blessed with creativity and charm would like to share their wares, the insecurity from which the desire to be in the spotlight at all times can be draining. Astrologers advise that learning to compliment others will bring Leos the praise they crave and move them off the most obnoxious list!

Virgos: Neat Freak!Cleanliness is nice. Some say it's even next to godliness. Certainly a Virgo coined that phrase! The nit-picky Virgin sometimes compromises their own pleasure for the sake of perfection. But Virgo needs to learn that feeling good trumps looking good any day. By making time for a few minutes of messy fun each day (try baking, painting or sculpting), experts say Virgos can overcome their fear of filth and learn to love the messier aspects of life - in moderation of course!

Libra: Shop 'Til We All Drop!_If you're around a Libra for long, you'll realize that shopping addiction is a very real thing. Inspiration for the term "shopaholic," these folks have every credit card in the book. Blessed with undeniably impeccable taste, their penchant for the finer things isn't necessarily troublesome, though it can get them in trouble at bankruptcy court. Word is however, that what's really at stake here is a quest for beauty. Simple but inexpensive pleasures like nature walks and museums can quell the balance seekers' urge to splurge.

Scorpio: Stinging Resentment!If you hurt a Scorpio, on purpose or even without meaning to, you may have an enemy for life. No one carries a grudge better than a scorpion, whose unfortunate tendency to cling to resentments sometimes crowds out room for love, happiness, and trust. Self-care is key for this stinging sign who can learn to let go of a grudge by softening their hearts. Getting a massage every month or writing in a journal each day will do a lot to enable forgiveness.

Sagittarius: Ouch! Honesty Hurts!The archer sure knows how to hit a bull's eye - only sometimes the target may be your soft spot! Known for their habit of merciless truth telling, even the most well-intentioned Sag will miss the mark with inappropriate comments on occasion, so don't say we didn't warn you when you ask a Sagittarius if your butt looks fat in a pair of jeans. But all hope is not lost, as archers are also quick studies, and the best way for them to cultivate tact is by hitting the books. Study up on Miss Manners and even the most honest archers will be able to discern when keeping their mouths shut would be the optimal option.

Capricorns: Work, Work, Work!Hard work is good work according to the goat, who is, undoubtedly, the original workaholic. Afraid to loosen up for fear that poverty will set in as soon as they stop working, Capricorn's best cure for this tendency is learning to appreciate their non-material blessings. Astrologers suggest keeping a gratitude journal and enjoying even just a few minutes a day of relaxation/reflection or meditation. By learning to appreciate the present, goats can stop cutting vacations short for the sake of work!

Aquarius: Social Distortion!Independence is a virtue... sort of! Water-bearers get into the habit of creating completely self-sufficient lives, making it difficult for them to achieve intimacy. Afraid that relationships will compromise their independence this means they sometimes have an aversion to settling down. Fortunately, experimentation is a true Aquarian love, so treating intimacy as an exercise will allow the Water-bearer to relinquish control and partake in relationships.

Pisces: Drowning Sorrows!It's to be expected that the fish loves liquids. But when those liquids have a high alcohol content, problems can ensue for the sensitive Piscean. Naturally, a twelve-step program can be of enormous benefit here. But before things get that far, meditation and yoga are especially worthwhile for Pisces as they allow the fish to achieve a healthy sense of nirvana. In the end, that's all these dreamers are really after!
