While we all make mistakes, not all of us are great at owning up to them. Sometimes our mistakes hurt others, yet we are often unsure how make amends or wonder why we need to make amends in the first place. Read on to understand why you need to make amends, according to your Zodiac.
(March 21-April 19)
As an Aries, rather than working to understand why you feel the way you do, you tend to simply exist. Making amends can be difficult for you as it involves a great deal of reflection and formulation of your thoughts. However, you should prioritize making amends and putting your ego aside. Maybe you did something wrong, but at first, it is hard for you understand how to make things better. By taking initiative and focusing others, you will be able to move forward as conflicts arise.
(April 20-May 20)
As a Taurus, making amends can be difficult for you because you are often extremely stubborn. It can be hard for you to find a balance and many times you fail to recognize that you are the one who needs to ask for forgiveness. Recognizing that you are the one who needs to make amends will not only help to establish harmony in your life, but will also help you learn to develop healthy habits on your own.
(May 21-June 20)
As a Gemini, you live your life based on your own self interest. You come and you go as you please and you don’t cater to other people’s needs. While this lifestyle allows you to be independent and prioritize your own personal freedom, it can be quite problematic when you need to own up to your mistakes and apologize. Making amends requires a great deal of thought and patience as you are forced to assess another person’s feelings. However, it is important for you to work on making amends because it will help you learn to focus on other’s interests, not just your own.
(June 21-July 22)
As a Cancer, you tend to expect others to understand your needs and varying feelings. Yet, this is problematic when another person needs you to take initiative and make amends. In the long run it will help if you try to step in someone’s shoes and understand their point of view. By owning up to your actions and apologizing when necessary, you will be able to maintain the strong bonds you have with others.
(July 23-August 24)
As a Leo, you have a huge heart and an open mind. You are incredibly self assured and you are a natural born leader. While making amends should come easy to you, sometimes you have trouble prioritizing an apology. You hate pettiness, therefore taking the initiative to make amends will hopefully save you from any rudeness or drama.
(August 23-September 22)
As a Virgo, you are very careful and orderly. You like to take care of things using a systematic approach. Therefore, making amends can be difficult for you because an apology can be an incredibly time sensitive issue. You may not have weeks to plan an apology and sometimes you may have to take advantage of a single moment. While making amends may not be part of your plan for the day, it is important that you work on this spontaneity and apologize when necessary.
(September 23-October 22)
As a Libra, while you really admire harmony, you also can be a bit vain and obsessed with your appearance. You always want things to go smoothly and you know that conflict jeopardizes your happiness. While apologizing sometimes forces you to put aside your ego and appearance, it is for the best in the long run. Stay true to your outspoken self, but make sure you are handling your apology with care.
(October 23-November 21)
As a Scorpio, you can be incredibly passionate, stubborn, and intense. In most cases you are a dominant figure, but yet you still often shy away from confrontation. Making amends involves a great deal of confrontation and talking things out. You need to work on making amends when necessary and dealing with your problems instead of letting them fester. By tackling problems as they arise, you will be able to work on dealing with obstacles in a healthy way.
(November 22-December 21)
As a Sagittarius, you often are able to look at the big picture and problem solve in many situations. Resolving conflicts and making amends often come easy to you as you prioritize honesty in your relationships. However, you are an idealist and often romanticize certain confrontations. When you are making amends, it is important that you focus on staying grounded and realistic throughout the conversation. While your overactive mind can overstimulate others, during an apology make sure you keep things simple and focus on the task at hand.
(December 22-January 19)
As a Capricorn, you are incredibly bright and headstrong. You are often hardened in your ideas and perspectives. While these qualities make you an incredibly successful person, they can also be problematic during an apology. Next time you go to make amends, try to confront the situation with a new perspective. Instead, think of how another person would perceive your words and actions. While this may be hard for you to do at first, it will help you tremendously in the future.
(January 20-February 18)
As an Aquarius, you are a forward thinker and an intellectual. You also truly want to enjoy life without the mess of conflict or stress. To you, conflict usually arises from confrontation and drama. Therefore, despite your good heart, you strive to maintain objectivity, which often leads to others accusing you of being a bit cold. When making amends, it is important that you learn to open up and express your intentions. Be true to yourself and aim to forgive someone or apologize in your own creative way.
(February 19-March 20)
As a Pisces, you have a very deep and emotional connection to the Universe and the harmony that it creates. You feel things strongly and often get wrapped up in your own emotions. When making amends, it is incredibly important to put your emotions off to the side and focus on the emotions of someone else. While you often retreat back to your own psyche, it is important that you also spend time and energy understanding the emotions and vulnerabilities of others.
