Things You Suck At, According To Your Zodiac Sign

Updated July 13, 2020 2.8m views12 items

You suck, but it's not your fault – blame the stars. Zodiac signs make you who you are (if you believe in that sort of thing, which you probably don't if you're a Virgo). While the stars may give you your best traits, they're also responsible for your very worst (that Kanye-level ego or Kardashian-approved vanity). Faults from the zodiac include everything from accidentally blabbing your BFF's darkest secrets to being too stubborn to ask for help. Society's biggest shortcomings, according to the zodiac, infiltrate every aspect of human daily life – they're the reason that Tinder date didn't go as planned... or at least, that's what Cancer has been relentlessly overthinking for the last 45 minutes.

So, what do you suck at according to your sign? If you're a Leo, you certainly suck at sharing the spotlight. If you're an Aries, you just can't be a team player (unless your role on the team is head coach). The weaknesses according to your zodiac sign aren't even always the biggest problem. Sometimes it’s your strengths that make your personality utterly unbearable. Scorpios are adept manipulators and Capricorns are wildly successful users who will leech off other people's success.

Check out what your sign says you suck at below, and try not to blame your mother too much for not giving birth at some other time of the year. Instead, thank the stars above!

    There's no one who embodies the idea of an independent spirit more than Sagittarius. A Sagittarius is wildly independent, dedicated and driven – a lone wolf who slays the world solo. These traits are a straight-shot to success, but they also sort of get in the way.

    Stubborn Sagittarians have to do everything by themselves. Like a toddler who falls flat on their face after insisting they can tie their shoes without the help of mom and dad, a Sagittarius will fall over and over again because they believe they don't need anyone. In turn, a Sag's desire to succeed without the help of others makes them seem pretty overconfident, argumentative and smug. No one likes to watch a stubborn person repeatedly fail because they can't ask for a hand (or maybe you do, if you're a Scorpio).

    Keep your friends close and your enemies closer – as long as your enemies have success, money and social status. Capricorns are serious social-climbers. This strong-willed sign has no problems cutting out a toxic friend – they may even err on the side of callous – unless of course that toxic friend is ultra-popular. If that's the case, you'll probably hear them name drop that person ad nauseam.

    If you've got something a Capricorn wants, you can bet she's going to snuggle up close until she leeches your success. Hey, at least Capricorn's methods really do work. They definitely manage to climb the social ladder and excel in their fields, though it's at the cost of genuine relationships. Is it lonely at the top? Capricorn couldn't care less.

    Aquariuses are smart smart and innovative at their very core, but exist in a strange paradox between mainstream and fringe. If you're an Aquarius, you've got the kind of mind that isn't about to file that boring paperwork at your day job because you're busy dreaming up a future where a computer will fill it out for you. Unfortunately, that's pretty annoying for literally everyone you work with, and you can come off like a total brag or someone who's completely apathetic. Yeah, it's a drag to have to explain your brainiac ideas to minds who think inside the box, but you can't let it get the best of you. The world hasn't yet caught up to your ideologies, so when you ditch out on paying a parking ticket in a fit of rebellion, you're going to have to own up to the annoying late fine. Who knew being smart would be so hard?

    You don't mean it, Pisces. You're a good friend - a great friend. You just get wrapped up in your creative projects. It's like that time you started working on that experimental art instillation and suddenly its seven hours later, all your friends are asking where you are, and you realized you haven't even had any dinner. You also have a tendency to get pretty pessimistic, and you're no stranger to canceling plans just because you're feeling overwhelmed at the thought of existing in a world where everyone's work seems better than yours. A little advice? Get off the Internet and get to work. Browsing local artists' Instagram pages when you're in that sort of mood doesn't give you inspiration. It just makes you feel terrible.
