We all know the classic “traits” of each Sun sign: Scorpios are sultry, Tauruses are stubborn, Geminis are “two-faced” (seriously, what’s with all the Gemini hate?). The list goes on. However, these characteristics aren’t necessarily *true*. That’s why we compiled a list of your sign’s most overlooked qualities—to wake everyone up. Not all Capricorns are workaholic CEOs and not all Leos are IG influencers-in-training.
Here’s the ~other side~ to your Sun sign:
The haters may call you aggressive, but you have a soft, romantic side that’s rarely seen. When you fall, you fall hard, and you’ll do anything to woo your boo—even (gasp!) letting them take the lead in planning dates.
You have a rep for being stubborn and rigid, but real talk: You can also be carefree and spontaneous. You’re amazingly centered and you know how to ~live in the moment~.
The term “ride-or-die” is all you, Gemmy! In fact, you always put your pals first—even before your own needs. You’re the one organizing the group Google Hangs and listening to your friend vent about their roomie. You’re a real BFF.
Face facts, Cancer: You’re a total baller! You like to work and play hard, and you’ve got the inside scoop on the people and places to know. Plus, you’re always ready to share your networking skills, which—bonus!—boosts your own success.
You’re generous to those in need, which is a trait that’s overshadowed by your ~love of the spotlight~. The truth is that you give your all—resources, contacts, compliments, whatev—to anyone who needs a boost. You’ve got a big personality, yes, but your heart’s even bigger.
Ever hear the saying “patience is a virtue”? Well, that could be your motto. But despite your *cool vibe*, you have a slow-burning temper that comes out when you’re really pushed (after being calm for far longer than you should be). Overall, you’re 95 percent chill, but that other 5 percent...watch out!
You can be a lil aggressive when it comes to getting your way. True, you’re not the type to triple-text the group chat to make your point known. But you’ve got the *intensity* to make sure that you’re always heard, no matter what.
Contrary to what people think, you’re actually really sweet. This may surprise those who don’t know you very well, because your brooding intensity keeps out those who aren’t the real deal. But when people get to know the ~real you~, they’ll find a calmness and niceness that might surprise them.
You tell it like it is and sometimes even get in trouble for your blunt nature. However, you still have an imaginative side. You’re always ready to swap stories and open up about your ~feelings~ to others, even if some of your tales aren’t one hundred percent true. Your dreamy vibe is your most overlooked characteristic—embrace it more!
You are hands down one of the funniest signs of the zodiac. You’re a workaholic, yes, but your dry wit makes you a favorite with your friends and in the office too. You know how to make your colleagues laugh with your sarcasm and eye rolls during those meetings that should have been emails.
You can be a little competitive—even with those in your inner circle. Being fierce isn’t a bad thing, so don’t fret! This characteristic will enable you to crush it at work—but stay away from cutthroat tactics because they can backfire.
You’re known for your intuitive, dreamy nature, but you’ve got an analytical side too. You observe matters carefully before committing to a particular way of thinking. This helps you understand people and situations on a deeper level before you decide whether to dive in or swim away.
