Your Worst Habits According to What is Written in the star

Each of the twelve signs in the zodiac brings a unique energy to the cosmos; however, there are certain aspects of each sign that are (at best) obnoxious, and (at worst) toxic as hell. Some signs have a reputation that you might already be familiar with—Scorpios and Geminis get a lot of flack—while others signs have negative traits that are better hidden. But often, just as gnarly!

You can also read each of these mini-drags (oops!) through the lenses of love, communication or action/aggression by finding out which signs correspond to your natal Venus, Mercury and Mars, respectively. Enjoy—and don’t get too salty!




Aries


Aries, your worst habit is being a major workaholic! Because you’re the first sign in the zodiac, you always want to run the show—even if it means you suffer from serious burnout after.
