In this day and age, it is widely believed that the higher the self-esteem, the happier your life. While self-esteem hasn't been paid much attention decades ago, today it appears that it is, in fact, a factor that impacts virtually all aspects of one's psychological self. But achieving the perfect balance of self-esteem can be a bit tricky, as there are many factors that affect how much you value and love yourself. Your relationships with friends, family or romantic partner, your work, your accomplishments, your career, your physical and mental health – all these things impact the way you feel about yourself.
If you want to learn more about yourself and find out how much you truly value yourself, you need as much information as possible. One great way to gain more insight is to analyze yourself through your zodiac sign. Every sign of the zodiac has their own strengths, weaknesses and personality traits, so if you analyze your sign, you can gain more awareness about yourself and put yourself in a great position to achieve perfect balance of self-love. Loving yourself is not a bad thing, but you should be careful how much love you spend on yourself and yourself only. Here is how much are you into yourself according to your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Aries is known as the leader of the pack, and it takes a lot of confidence to wear that label the way the Ram does. As headstrong and opinionated as Aries is, everything these individuals do or say is with confidence. They don't care about the feelings of others. However, they can be pretty sensitive; they just choose not to show. When upset or hurt, Aries representatives usually overcompensate with jokes or random subject changes in a way that not many can notice.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Due to their tendency to constantly seek perfection in themselves, Taurus is unable to love themselves very much. These sensitive individuals are easily disappointed in themselves as well as in other people. Furthermore, they are known for their insecurities, which they desperately try to hide from other people by getting out of their way only to show they're perfectly happy. The only thing Taurus absolutely loves about themselves is their taste for food and fashion.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Adventurous, fun-loving, social and forever young, Gemini representatives usually love themselves for who they are. Even though they're constantly looking for answers and solutions and can sometimes be a complete mess, they know how to embrace themselves. While sometimes Gemini can be incredibly confident in certain circumstances, there are also times when they're completely out of their comfort zone and feel utterly uncomfortable. However, Geminis love their ability to mold themselves to fit in various situations and not just fit, but be the main source of fun too.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
As one of the most insecure signs of the zodiac, Cancer doesn't value themselves as much as they tend to value their closest ones. These individuals always put others first, they're selfless, protective, caring and dedicated to all the people and things they love. Cancer representatives take everything personally, so they are easily hurt because their self-esteem depends on other people's feelings. These wonderful people need to learn how to love themselves for who they are, simply because they are special.
Leo (July 23 – Aug 22)
It should come as no surprise to read that Leo is absolutely crazy about themselves. These confident and proud individuals always think they're right and always seek for the best or nothing. Leo individuals can be often perceived as arrogant, but they couldn't care less, because they know exactly who they are. They love the spotlight and they love being the center of attention.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
With such a brilliant, rational mind, Virgos spend a lot of time thinking, processing and analyzing all kinds of things and so they usually believe their inner voice. On the flip side, Virgo can be overly self-critical at times and start thinking less of themselves. They are always worried about how will they be perceived by others, which makes them incredibly insecure. Therefore, Virgos find it difficult to love themselves, simply because they don't let themselves be.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
The eternal seeker for harmony, balance and peace will do and say everything, even change their own interests and personality, just to keep everything in their life running smoothly. They won't even care about their ethics, beliefs and morals as much as they do about how will their actions affect others. Libra representatives are incredibly selfless and kind, always avoiding conflicts and fights. Libras depend on approval from others and that makes it nearly impossible for them to love themselves. On top of all that, Libras would rather spend time with a complete stranger than be alone.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
Fearless, independent, passionate, resourceful and disciplined, Scorpio is someone we all need in our lives. But do they know how to love themselves? Well being as protective, caring and loving towards their dearest ones as they are leaves them with not much self-love. Furthermore, Scorpios have a tendency to get so caught up in their own thoughts that they forget their own worth. When it comes to sex, though, Scorpio is the most confident zodiac sign of all.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Fun and adventurous individual who loves to be in a good mood all of the time, Sagittarius is an extrovert by nature and there's nothing they don't love about themselves. These individuals sometimes appear as they're too much into themselves, and there's nothing bad about that (Sagittariuses believe). Since they highly value their own opinion on themselves, they're nearly impossible to be offended, because when someone attempts to, they quickly turn it into a joke and laugh on their own account. With so much self love, Sagittarius is surely a zodiac winner in terms of self-esteem.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Hardheaded, stubborn and goal oriented, Capricorn is a pretty confident zodiac sign who is always thinking about their future and what do they want to do in their life. But with so much focus on the future, Capricorn individuals often forget to live in the moment and so miss out the opportunity to celebrate their accomplishments. Nevertheless, they know what they've accomplished and they know their worth; they just aren't crazy about it because they like to push themselves harder and harder and get better and better.
Aquarius (January 21 - February 18)
Aquarius is a natural giver and a huge humanitarian with a kind heart, someone who's easy to click and be comfortable with. These individuals are able to blend into any environment, surrounding or situation. They feel a constant need for growth, movement or simply doing something, because the very idea of boredom freaks them out. By doing so, Aquarius individuals often forget who they are. They only love themselves when they're doing something that genuinely fulfills them from within, which unfortunately doesn't last long.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
The imaginative Pisces does usually get lost in their own thoughts, doubting and hating themselves simply because they took something to heart that was absolutely meaningless (such as a negative compliment on their look). Pisces have a tendency to allow other people define who they are, which speaks volumes about their insecurities. As emphatic and compassionate as they are, people usually love being around Pisces and that makes them feel good about themselves. Also, they are confident when it comes to their imagination and creativity that usually inspires artistic masterpieces.
