When someone reads your zodiac traits, they usually take away one aspect of it and just assume that is your entire personality.
For example, "Oh you're a Cancer, you must be an emotional wreck," or, "Oh you're a Sagittarius, do you care about anyone but yourself?"
Every sign gets judged and stereotyped. There are a lot of misconceptions surrounding every sign, but here they are, debunked:
People usually stereotype you as a bull-headed meanie.
They get this stereotype because you are known to be stubborn and say what you think. Although this is true, that doesn't mean all of you are rude and annoying.
Different characteristics of Aries lead many people to believe that people born under this star sign are very impulsive and aggressive. In fact, this misconception is because you like to take the lead and be dominant. You have an innate will to take the initiative, but it does not make you hot-headed. It is just a way to hide your weaknesses in order to move forward.
You will do anything for the people in your life and are also very down to earth. You tend to be blunt but that doesn't mean you are a bad person.
People often think you are a push-over because you are a very kind and loving person.
Anyone who tries to push you around will realize this isn't the case, really quickly.
You are the sweetest person ever, but you will not deal with people trying to walk all over you.
You will make anyone regret pushing you around, and they will definitely realize they were wrong about you.
People often see you as the life of the party that doesn't care about anything except for fun, and some people even see you as fake.
Although you enjoy a party, you also like having time to yourself, as well as even some quiet nights.
People see you as fake because you have so many friends. You have a large social group because you get along with people so easily, that does not make you fake.
People look at you as a moody/emotional/overreacting mess. (Trust me, I know I'm a Cancer too.)
There is no doubt that you have a lot of emotions, but that doesn't mean you are a needy baby.
You just want to make those around you happy. Although you have a big heart for others, you can take care of yourself when you really need to.
People often see you as an attention-craving, vain person. (That's just because they're jealous of you though.)
Although you love being the center of attention, you often put the needs of others ahead of your own and are constantly thinking of the people you care about.
People always feel like you are too critical and judging. People see you as thinking you are perfect while they suck. This isn't true.
You are very critical, but you are more critical of yourself rather than other people.
You constantly strive to better yourself and do whatever you can to achieve this.
People often see you as a lazy person. They see this because they only see the laid-back and unreliable side of you.
You make things look easy to a point that people think you're doing nothing, while you're actually working your butt off.
Your laid-back attitude often sparks misconceptions surrounding laziness or not caring. Just because you're laid back doesn't mean you're useless.
People see you as a very harsh, possessive person.
The reality of this is that you just really care about the people in your life.
You would do literally anything for the people you love, which is why some people see your protective nature as possessive. You're not crazy, just loving.
People often believe you are unable to commit, and that if you do commit, you will be unfaithful.
They think this because of your free-spirited nature and adventurous attitude.
Just because you don't like to feel constrained by a clingy partner, it doesn't mean you can't commit.
Once you find the right person, you will have no issues with commitment.
People can sometimes see you as someone who holds grudges, always expects the worst, and is a know-it-all. People who see you this way have probably done something to hurt you.
You are very mature and don't have room in you life for non-genuine people.
When someone does you wrong, you usually have no issue with removing them from your life and moving on.
There is nothing wrong with this, you are more mature about this situation than most other signs would be.
People may see you as emotionless or someone who runs away from emotional expression.
It's not that you don't have emotions or are a heartless person, you're just not huge into showing your emotions to just anyone.
Once you meet someone that you feel for very deeply for, they will definitely see your emotional and vulnerable side.
People often see you as an extreme introvert or even kind of a loner, but that is not always the case.
You like being around other people, but you always enjoy having time to yourself. Being alone gives you a little escape from reality that you need.
Although some misconceptions can be somewhat true, people rarely try to find the truth behind them. Everyone is judged by their zodiac sign so don't feel alone.
Get to know people before you judge them off of one part of themselves, there could be a lot more to discover.
