You want to befriend someone or pursue a romantic relationship with them, and you finally muster up the confidence to start a conversation. At the beginning, the conversation goes well despite your nervousness. During the conversation, they ask you about your zodiac sign. You tell them about your zodiac sign. The next thing that you know, they end the relationship and lose interest in taking the relationship farther. Unbeknownst to you, it is because they don’t believe that your zodiac sign isn’t compatible with theirs. You have been put into what I call the zodiac box.
While it is true that some zodiac sign combinations are better for friendships and relationships than others, that doesn’t mean that it is impossible for the unlikely combination to work. Unfortunately, it isn’t possible to avoid being put into the zodiac box with everyone, but the good news is that there is a good way to increase your chances of avoiding it. The best way is to work on the weaknesses of your zodiac sign. If you read our previous articles on zodiac signs, then you know that every sign has a strength and weakness. This is common across most of the zodiac sign systems. There are multiple ways that you can improve the weaknesses of your zodiac sign, no matter what zodiac sign or system that you fall under.
The first step to solving a problem is recognition. It is very important that you know what the problem is. I would advise you to purchase a notebook and write your zodiac sign weaknesses. As you go through your day, make sure that you refer to your zodiac journal to review your weaknesses, so that you remember to avoid falling into your weaknesses. I say that because there is a good chance that these weaknesses became habits.
Habits can be difficult to break because they are actions that we often do subconsciously. In order to break the habit, you have to remind yourself to avoid practicing that action. That is why you should review your zodiac journal throughout the day. If you are busy, all you have to do is take a few minutes to glance over your list around two or three times a day. At the end of the day, put a check mark beside each of the weaknesses that you avoided. Write your list of weaknesses again and repeat the process the following day.
Go outside of your comfort zone
It is true that each zodiac sign is born with certain characteristics, likes, dislikes, strengths, and weaknesses. Don’t forget that these weaknesses aren’t permanent and can be fixed with consistent hard work. One method that can help you overcome your weaknesses is going out of your comfort zone. Many people struggle with this; however, this step is a requirement for growth. If you don’t gain new experiences or learn new information, then you’ll find that growing is difficult.
For example, a few years ago while I was in high school, I knew someone that had a fear of flying. Throughout his life, the thought of an airplane made his stomach lurch. Anyone that tried to ease his fear with logic failed. No matter what statistics that you told him, or positive experiences that you informed him about, he didn’t change. One day, his situation changed when his grandmother got sick.
His grandmother lived in another country and usually flew to him once or twice a year. Unfortunately, his grandmother’s condition didn’t allow her to take a flight. Even though he was terrified of planes, his parents forced him to take the flight. At first, he had fear in his gut, but as the hours passed by, he became more relaxed. He was proud of himself for overcoming his fear. He is now getting his pilot’s license.
This example shows how if you force yourself to get out of your comfort zone, you can not only eliminate your weakness, but turn it into a strength. This same formula can be applied to your zodiac sign weaknesses. I don’t expect you to take a leap and go outside of your comfort zone right away. I would advise you to take small steps and slowly build them until you get out of your comfort zone. If you have social anxiety, don’t start with giving a speech in front of five hundred people. Instead, start by introducing yourself to someone that you see daily, such as a classmate or coworker.
Looking into yourself
When it is your goal to improve yourself no matter what area it is, one of the most important places that you have to look at is within you. Sometimes we search everywhere for answers that are outside of our mind. There is nothing wrong with this method because it is good to gain knowledge from others. However, sometimes if you sit down and think, you’ll discover the answer on your own. If you want to fix your zodiac sign weaknesses, perhaps you should try a process called self-reflection. Even though self-reflection might sound simple, many people struggle with this process because of ego.
When you reflect on yourself, it is important that you put your ego to the side. Find a quiet place without distraction, sit in a comfortable spot, and meditate on your experiences with your weaknesses. Make sure that you view your experiences as an outsider that knows nothing about the situation. If you want to, you can write about your experiences in your journal. Ask yourself a few questions. How did my weakness ruin my experience? Why did I allow this weakness to ruin my experience? How can I avoid allowing my weakness to ruin my experience again?
Even though this is only three questions, each one requires a lot of thought. Don’t come up with a conclusive answer to these questions after a couple of minutes. Instead, take your time and meditate for as long as you need to. Think about multiple experiences that were affected by your weakness. Write each of your answers to these questions in your journal.
Connect with fellow zodiac signs
At the opposite end of the spectrum, you can connect with others to help you improve your weakness. Sometimes your ego might tell you otherwise, but it is not always possible for you to make an accomplishment on your own. There are clubs called support groups that can help you with your struggle. A support group is a group of people with a common problem that they are trying to solve. For example, there are support groups for drug attics, people with diseases, convicted criminals, and more. You can build a zodiac sign support group.
The support group doesn’t have to be large. All you need is one or two others that have knowledge of astrology and their shortcomings. You can set up a time and place to meet them. Make sure that all of you share your experiences with each other and analyze your weaknesses. You will then have a discussion about how you can improve these weaknesses and develop a solution.
No matter how smart you are, it is important to not let your ego block you from gaining knowledge. There are other brilliant minds out there that can teach you important information, and you can teach them as well. If you have a library with a thousand books and you see an excellent book that you don’t have, will you not take the book because you already have a thousand? Of course not. This is the same logic that has to be applied to when gaining knowledge.
After reading about your zodiac sign, it is not uncommon to feel stuck in a box. I hope after reading this article you know you are not alone.
