Everyone lies. Even the most honest people lie occasionally, but they do it to spare someone’s feelings. For example, the most common lies you will hear from honest people are those telling someone who asks them if they look good in an outfit that they look great even though they may not look that way to their eyes. But they do it to spare their feelings.
However, at some point, most people will lie to escape a tricky situation to save themselves. But Honesty Day, April 30th, is the day to challenge yourself, to be honest, no matter how challenging. And that includes being honest with how you view yourself. What is the most honest thing can each zodiac sign say about themselves?
Aries – You Don’t Always Appreciate What You Have
Aries, you are passionate and energetic, always ready to be competitive, and keep being the first to try to get the newest gadget or fashion piece. You want to be first in everything you do, which makes sense since Aries is the first and cardinal fire sign. However, if you were to be reflective and look at yourself honestly, you would see that you have won in many areas of your life.
You have great friends and are successful because of your competitive drive. If you were honest, you would admit that you don’t always appreciate the great things you have in your life because you constantly strive to get more. There is nothing wrong with striving for more, but never forget the things you have.
Taurus – You Know You Are Stubborn
Taurus, you are stoic, tenacious, and very hardworking. But you are also very set in your ways and have a routine you must stick to, as a predictable routine provides you with the security you need. And you are all about security. That is understandable given your nature, but you know that you need to be more flexible at times, and you also realize that you struggle to look at the other point of view that someone has because you want to believe you are always right.
Therefore, if you were honest about yourself, you would admit you are stubborn and inflexible. Of course, you cannot change who you are, but after acknowledging this truth about you, you may want to look and see how you can bend sometimes.
Gemini – You Have A Fear of Getting Hurt
Gemini, you are versatile, friendly, and communicative and like having many friends. However, you also keep others at arm’s length even though you enjoy the company of your friends. You also struggle to connect with your emotions because you are an air sign.
If you were to look within and be truthful about yourself, you would admit that you keep your guard up and you do not allow others to get too close to you unless you want to seek a partner. You fear getting hurt, and you struggle to place a lot of trust in others. You must ask yourself if there is a logical reason not to trust someone you decided not to get to know well. If you can’t find it, then there is some shadow work to do.
Cancer – You Look After Yourself Last
Cancer, you are nurturing and emotional and value your family and home. You are the type to ensure that everyone is comfortable and safe. You would even be the one to let a stranger in your home out in the cold so they can enjoy some of your home-cooked meals.
However, if you were to be truthful about yourself, you know you can pour out of an empty glass because you tend to everyone else’s needs first. You admit that you tend to look after yourself last, and you need to begin to see how important it is to replenish yourself so you can help others. After all, you can’t pour from an empty cup.
Leo – You Are Insecure, Deep Down
Leo, you love to be the center of attention and want others to notice you. You are also warm-hearted and generous. And you tend to focus on yourself a lot, which is why you like to dress up, so others notice you and make yourself stand out in other ways.
You appear confident, but are you truly so? If you were to be truthful about yourself, you would have to admit deep down you crave love and attention from others because you have deep-seated insecurities. Because of that, that is why you work so hard to have others notice you, and that is why you do not like it whenever someone takes the spotlight from you.
Virgo – You Fear Loss of Control
Virgo, you are highly analytical, and you are also work and service-oriented. You genuinely want to help and serve others; health is also essential. However, at the same time, you can be overly critical. You can be too critical of yourself and others. The reason for that is deep down, you have a fear of loss of control. And if you were to be honest about yourself, you would see it and have to admit that it is your vice.
It bothers you that many things are out of your control. You cannot control what others do, and being overly critical of them and their choices will not change that. You can only control your actions, but you must cut yourself slack. You are human, after all.
Libra – You Hold In Your Feelings Until You Can’t Anymore
Libra, you are the one that wants peace, and you don’t like conflicts. However, you also want to ensure everyone is happy, which means going at your expense. That means you hold in a lot of how you feel and do that to avoid potential conflicts, which only hurts you in the end.
If you are honest with yourself, you will see that you are not the best communicator as you do not express your feelings. And you also put your wants and needs aside to appease others. When that happens, you become quite passive-aggressive until you blow up. So, if you admit that you need to work on your communication skills and be braver when getting into debates, that is half the battle.
Scorpio – You Hold Onto Things That No Longer Serve You
Scorpio, you are intense, passionate, secretive, and mysterious. You don’t always communicate things well because you are private by nature, and if you are suspicious of something, you will do your research to help solve it. But that is who you are.
That is not your vice. However, if you were honest, you would admit that you tend to hold onto anything that no longer serves you. That means you may hang onto old feelings that no longer serve you, such as anger over something that someone did who believed they hashed it out and resolved you. You also hold onto old ideas that no longer help you, which take up your energy. You struggle to move on as you can keep yourself a prisoner of the past.
Sagittarius – You Can Be Unrealistically Optimistic
Sagittarius, you are happy-go-lucky and love to travel and go on various adventures. You also enjoy having and going to some fun parties. You always want to look at the positive side of life, which is a great trait, but sometimes you ignore that life is not always so pretty. Even though it is good to look at the glass half-full, you tend not to acknowledge reality and that some things in life are negative.
If you were honest with yourself, you would admit that you like to look at the positive of everything, even situations that are not positive which have gotten you hurt in the past. For example, there is nothing good about having a two-faced friend who does not care about you. And when you look for the good in someone like that, it only hurts you. Accept that not everything is so wonderful in life.
Capricorn – You Care Too Much What Others Think About You
Capricorn, you are very ambitious, goal-oriented, and focused on attaining your goals. You know that you tend to work overtime and leave very little room for fun, and you know that is something you need to work on, but that is not the only thing you need to be honest about yourself.
Yes, you want to attain goals for yourself, but you also care too much about how others see you. You concern yourself whether or not people admire you or not and you want them to respect you. You don’t want them to think of you as a failure. The truth is, everyone will judge you one way or another. So focus on doing things for yourself and those close to you.
Aquarius – You Care Too Little What Others Think About You
Aquarius, you are a rebel and an independent thinker, and you march to your drummer. You are not concerned about what others think of you, which can be a good thing but not a good thing. If you were honest with yourself, you would see that you concern so little about what others think of you that you are not concerned about how you present yourself affects them and your relationships with them.
You put up a tough front and don’t share your emotions because you don’t think being more sensitive to others is worth it. However, as independent as you are, you also get lonely, so you don’t want to push others away because how you affect their feelings does not concern you. It would be best to find the right balance between not caring what others think and caring too much, as Capricorn does.
Pisces – You Get Lost In Your Emotions
Pisces, you are overly sensitive and imaginative. You can create scenarios in your mind that often do not serve you, and when that happens, you can catastrophize, which is not good for your overall well-being. You know you get lost in your emotions, and if you were honest about yourself, you would see that it is a problem for you.
It is hard for you to overcome past hurts or past bad experiences, and you may think that if you try something again that hurt you or trust someone after you have been hurt, your emotions take over to the point of you starting to catastrophize which will only prevent you from moving forward in life. Yes, it is best to be mindful and careful, but there are times to trust that the same bad experiences will not always happen.
Are you ready to take on the challenge of being honest about yourself and your vices on Honesty Day on April 30th? One of the best things that can come out of that is by admitting to yourself that you have these weaknesses, and perhaps that is a moment of truth where you can begin to work on your weaknesses. No one is perfect, nor should they strive to be, because that is unrealistic. However, if these issues have been holding you back from living a fulfilling life, you have to be honest with yourself that you have them, and then you can begin to figure out how to work through them.
