Myth: they are 100% into themselves and never have self doubts.

They’re also capable of sparking some of the most fascinating of conversations too thanks to their sharp intellect.
Reality: sometimes they just take a bit of time before they can open up to someone new.
The truth about the Virgo personality is that they simply take a bit longer to warm up to new people than some of the other zodiac signs so don’t misread them for being rude because chances are they’re just a little shy. Once they feel comfortable and at ease though they will start to open up more and may even get a bit WILD!
Myth: they are fake or inauthentic.
Sometimes Libras can get a bit of a bad wrap for being “fake” or somehow inauthentic.

Reality: they strive to find a compromise where everyone is happy.

But the fact of the matter is that once their friendship is earned they can actually be some of the most loyal and trustworthy allies that a person can have.
Reality: they just take some time to build up trust with others.
Part of the reason that it can seem like Scorpio is putting up a wall is because they simply take longer to build up trust with people and they are careful about who they allow into their world. But if you give them time and don’t try to rush them then the wait is more than worth it!
Myth: they are upbeat 24/7 and never get down.

Reality: they can sometimes act happy as a way to hide their true feelings.
One of the most misleading things about a Sagittarius when it comes to trying to understand how they feel is the fact that they can sometimes project a positive image in order to cover up their negative emotions. They’re just extremely selective about who they show that kind of stuff too.

They are long term thinkers who are happy to work hard today so that they can the reap the rewards further on down the track.
Myth: they are incapable of deeper thought and emotions.
Aquarius can come across as detached and somewhat hard to relate too and because of this many make the mistake of thinking that there is not much going on in their head or heart.

Reality: sometimes they they do their best thinking when they are on their own.
Often Aquarius finds themself doing their best thinking when they are on their own. It’s not that they hate people or anything but they often work through issues best when they are away from all of the chaos in the world.
Myth: they are downright crazy.
Some people can look at the Pisces as such a unique specimen that they label them as flat-out crazy. But the truth is they just operate on different wavelength from many of the other signs which gives them a bit of a unique perspective and outlook on the world.
Reality: they are escapists who enjoy living in the clouds rather than focusing on negative energies.
The Pisces isn’t so much crazy as they are an escapist. They see no point in focusing all of their attention of the negativity in the world and prefer to focus on their dreams and the good that exists around them.
