If you’ve ever been misunderstood, or if it’s a normal situation for you, then try giving this a read. It certainly helped me.
Sometimes, people misunderstand things about us. Our common habits and normal reactions lead them to understand incorrectly, and we cannot really blame them for that. According to astrology, we all have different kinds of personalities that determine our actions and reactions. Astrology can also tell us why people misunderstand these things about us, given our usual traits. If you look grumpy, you might not actually be pissed off; it is just your expressions derived from your speaking habits. Likewise, we are not what we look like. Read the following text to understand better what people misunderstand about you according to your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21 – April 19):
You look cold-hearted to people who don’t know you because of your low tolerance for unneeded emotional drama. What people misunderstand about you is that you do have emotions and you do know how and when to use them; they think that you are too cool to care when you are only saving up the tears for something more worthy. Being Aries, you are the adventurous kind, the kind to try new things and meet your goals at the same time; therefore you have to stand up for yourself. People take that as a sign of being cold when, in reality, you are only taking care of yourself without paying much attention to minor obstacles.
You don’t need to change a thing about yourself for people who misunderstand will be corrected when they get to know the real you.
Taurus (April 20 – May 21):
You are a smart person who knows when to show your soft side and when to not. People think that you are not a loving person and are too hard on the outside when actually you are only being protective of your heart. They think that you do not care about people’ feelings but the truth is that you do care and are only being careful. You know how people play with emotions and you don’t want to be played so you keep your circle small and only, fiercely, care for people who care about you. You love intensely when you do and people who don’t make the effort to get to know you don’t deserve any explanations from you; you owe them nothing. Staying your true self makes you, you.
You can come out as uncaring but it is the people who are close to you who know that your heart is soft as cotton.
Gemini (May 22 – June 21):
People think you are flaky for trying new things and not sticking to one. They misunderstand the fact that your passionate nature does not bound you to keep doing the same thing again and again; being passionate does not mean being committed to something for no good reason. It is normal for a passionate person to be passionate about new things for the fun of it. They think of you as the moody kind who abandons things and people when he/she gets bored of it when, actually, you only like trying new things and meeting new people. People fail to understand the thrill of exploring and discovering.
You are open to where life can take you and unafraid to try things out. Unfortunately, for people, that counts as being unstable and they can’t help but judge you for moving from one place to another.
Cancer (June 22 – July 22):
Cancers are known to be super sensitive people; it makes people think that they are pushovers. People presume that a Cancer has no self-respect in a relationship and will continue loving a person even when they have shown them the red flag. When, in fact, it is not the case. Cancers are self-righteous people who do their best to prevent a relation from falling apart. They are not people who are keep nagging someone to love them. They do get indulged in matters of love but as soon as the other person pulls out, Cancers prepare themselves to do the same.
Giving your best in love does not imply that you are a pushover or someone who stays no matter much insult is spewed at them. Cancers are able to understand when to show love and when to not; the misunderstanding is greatly and insultingly incorrect.
Leo (July 23 – August 22):
You are misunderstood to be self-assured more than you are. People think that you are into yourself and too confident to need anyone else. You are independent and people take it the wrong way. The truth is that you do need people and their support; you are no robot who can go by living its life without love and care. You do, sometimes, want to listen to nice words from those who matter to you and those who are close to you. You are often left to yourself, assuming that you will do just fine by yourself. But you are as human as everyone else and occasional compliments from your loved ones make your day. Maybe it is your quiet and content face that makes people misunderstand your needs or maybe it is not.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22):
People think that you are a boring person who has no fun in life and that you are all about work. What they fail to realize is that work is play for you. You find it amusing to work and grow and evolve all at the same time. You don’t need to look elsewhere for fun because what you do every minute of the day teaches you and learning is fun for you. You don’t despise other activities of fun and neither do you judge people who go out and have fun; it is just that you are happy where you are and people don’t see how.
You keep having fun like you do and ignore to what people have to say. You find happiness in little things and that is all that should matter.
Libra (September 23 – October 22):
You are the one people take advantage of. You are that one friend who people ask for unlimited favors considering you would never say because that is how kind hearted you are. What people do not realize is that you can get tired of the constant dependency sometimes and need time for yourself. And when you do think of yourself before others, you are labeled as selfish. The people who label you so are, of course, not your true friends.
You can be too good to be true sometimes; you think about people more than you should and it puts you in situations where you have to ignore yourself. Having a lot of friends should not mean that your own self gets ignored. Taking a stand does not mean you are selfish but only means that you equally care about yourself.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 22):
People assume that it is practically impossible to hurt you because of how good you are at hiding your feelings. They think you are rock solid and too emotionally stable to care about pain and everything. It is not true and you know that you do get hurt when people let you down. You just don’t let people see through you for they are not trustworthy. You do have a heart and having a heart means getting heartbroken. You have a good defense system which lets you process pain on your own but, still, sometimes, you wish you had someone who would understand how much it hurts.
As a Scorpio, you can be very fierce-looking but very sensitive on the inside. It is your skill of hiding that makes people think otherwise.
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21):
The most ridiculous mistake people make about judging you is that they assume you have got it all figured out. Also, they assume that they have judged you well and everything about you is known to them when, actually, the mystery is never solved. You are a walking puzzle, a traveler who is always exploring and a wanderer who is wandering even while being stationary. When they write everything down about you, you feel the urge to oppose everything written and try to be something new. You are wild when it comes to adventures, even if it means being someone or something new every other day.
People need to learn that a Sagittarius is never absolute; nothing about him or her is ever a line in the stone.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20):
You are presumed to be proud by people who don’t know you well. Capricorns are known to have high standards and high goals and it makes them have a larger perspective of life. People find you to be rude and arrogant, someone who thinks too highly of himself/herself to talk to them. The truth is that you have high expectations from yourself because you are hard worker and that is why you expect people to be just as good as you or even better. You think life is too short to be wasted. You do forgive people on their shortcomings; you are not completely ruthless. But when it comes to having a high standard, you only want people to work on themselves. You are really not someone to judge people for the things they were born with but the things they work for.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 18):
You are misunderstood to be emotionless because of your dislike for public display of emotions. You love deeply and you feel deeply but you are not fond of saying it out loud. You are not the enthusiastic expressor and not at all the hand-holding kind of romantic. You like to treat feelings like love and affection with care and secrecy for your own reasons. It makes people wonder if you do feel love at all.
You have your own way of expressing love and the world does not need to see everything. Keep your ways just as they are!
Pisces (February 19 – March 20):
People make the mistake of thinking that they can walk all over you; no matter how loud they shout you will take their shit, say sorry and mend everything later. It is wrong of them to think so. You do not let people get the better of you and have the sense of staying with right and moving away from wrong.
You cannot bear being mistreated and insulted; your soft nature does not take over your self-respect. It is really stupid of people to think that you will take everything they have to say and won’t say a word—you are kind but not THAT kind. The next time they come around to blow off some steam, they will not find you there standing quietly because you will have had enough of their bullshit and walked away.
