Unique characteristics, individual strengths and personal deficiencies are what make each of us human.
But if we allow ourselves to be consumed by our deepest fears and insecurities, our shortcomings can hinder success in all aspects of life.
FEMAIL's resident astrologer, Kelli Fox, revealed a detailed list of the greatest weaknesses for each star sign, as well as useful tips on how to overcome them.

ARIES: MARCH 21 – APRIL 19
Action-oriented Aries is always on the lookout for new adventures.
"Aries, the optimist, focuses on the glory of winning and rarely on the possible disadvantage of the actions they choose," said Ms. Fox.
While following the instinct of instinct can be an intelligent movement, excessive impulsiveness can instantly destroy things that take years to develop, as well as things that may have had potential with little time and patience.
How to cope: Learn to choose your battles. Try to seek advice from others who are older and wiser, even if you secretly think you are out of touch. They can give you an idea and clarity to see that the grass is not always greener.
TAURUS: APRIL 20 – MAY 20
A body at rest remains at rest, and Taurus does not move until it is ready and ready.
According to Fox, the comfort of creatures is always a temptation for Taurus, who is often prone to do the minimum for maximum rewards.
Taurus will remain in a routine or in an obsolete way of thinking if there is a risk of discomfort, although temporary.
There is something to be said for learning to be happy, and Taurus has it in mind, but nothing stays the same and, sometimes, the change gives us exactly what we need.
How to cope: Try to leave your comfort zone a little at a time. Do not take it as a threat if someone suggests that you try something new: they are trying to share the world with you, not to take away your security. It is possible that you like it.

GEMINI: MAY 21 – JUNE 20
Gemini loves some juicy information, but even more, they love sharing that juicy information.
"It does not have to be creepy or provocative, it could be something that allows Gemini to have more knowledge than others," said Ms. Fox.
Trying to know things by the mere fact of doing it, and sharing things for the sake of doing it, can mean stepping on someone's feet or violating their sense of privacy.
Even if Gemini does not think it's a big problem and does not take it personally, it does not mean that everyone else will feel the same.
How to cope: Before sharing, think about how it would affect other people. While it may be good to be right, and you can be, consider if this is the hill you want to die on, and if your actions will have an impact on something more important, such as friendship.
CANCER: FROM JUNE 21 TO JULY 22
Cancer is a sensitive soul that wants to get along and be in harmony with others.
"Cancer's defensive attitude to himself and his loved ones has a purpose: everyone is nurtured under his care," he said.
& # 39; The Crab carries its heart in the sleeve, even if others do not realize or do not appreciate this, therefore, Cancer has a tendency to take things personally, even things that really are not about them in the first place place & # 39;
This can cause Cancer to back off or go on the offensive when something lighter comes up.
How to cope: Ask yourself: "Is this really about me?" and – is this person trying to hurt me, or do I just hate what they did or said? & # 39; There is a difference and doing something you do not agree with is not necessarily abandonment or rejection. Communication without emotion could clarify the matter.

LEO: JULY 23 – AUGUST 22
Look at me Leo loves the good times, and loves everyone to know that they are the ones who started the party.
But, according to Ms. Fox, Leo often has trouble leaving the party.
"Sometimes, this seemingly brave sign may be afraid to challenge themselves because it is too vain to fail, since failure means fallibility and something worse: a possible humiliation.
"This pride and vanity can mean fighting to apologize when they are wrong, not being able to laugh at themselves or not associating with people that Leo could consider equal or, better said, superior, for fear of not being the star.
"Leo does not support the idea of being in the shadow of anyone," he said.
How to cope: Even our Sun is only a medium star in a galaxy of billions of stars that are born and die every second. You can not be the center of the whole universe. That is a lot of work. However, you can shine in your own solar system.
VIRGO: AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 22
Virgo is the master of seeing how things can go wrong or have been wrong because without criticism and attention to detail, we could not achieve perfection or avoid disaster.
However, Virgo simply can not avoid pointing out mistakes, problems or things that someone else has overlooked.
"This has been the ruin of many Virgos: sometimes, it's not about being right if you can not do anything or if it means little in the big picture.
"It is likely that everyone knows that you are ready and that you are probably right … but are you giving them an incentive to worry?" Mrs. Fox asked.
How to cope: Ask yourself if it will really help you criticize, or if it just makes you feel more controlled and needed. Think about what the big picture can be. Does the ultimate goal depend on whether you are right about a minor problem?

LIBRA: SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 22
"Libra allows people to go to them, after all, why should they do the work when it's not necessary?" she said.
"People come to them, and they're thrilled." Libra loves it when people do things for them, whether they're picking up the dry cleaning or dinner bill-in fact, if given a choice, Libra he will usually let someone else do the dirty work or the heavy work, even if they really should do it themselves. "
But although Libra often justifies this behavior, they do not learn anything, they do not grow or become stronger through mime.
How to cope: Do not ask for advice or help when you have something to do. Instead, suppose you are completely capable of doing everything yourself, and when you ask for help, ask for assistance, not someone doing it for you; There is a difference.
SCORPIO: OCTOBER 23 – NOVEMBER 21
Scorpio seems the embodiment of strength, but behind the shining armor there is a soft spirit that dreams of love.
According to Ms. Fox, this is her weakness: Scorpio can often become a slave to love.
The master or lover of extremes, Scorpio will give everything he has and is to the object of his desires and will destroy everything remotely resembling a threat.
"Scorpio's tendency towards obsession may mean holding on when his beloved wants to be abandoned or left alone," he said.
How to cope: Like all matters related to Scorpio, everything is better in moderation. Extreme emotion does not necessarily mean extreme circumstances. Love does not have to hurt, nor does it have to come all at once. Know that you are worth being loved as deeply as you love.

SAGITTARIUS: NOVEMBER 22 – DECEMBER 21
Sagittarius is a vagabond, but in the modern world where you are expected to have a career, a marriage, a mortgage and follow the rhythm of a common drum, Sagittarius' lack of commitment makes it easy to leave everything behind.
"What seems like safety to others feels like a trap for Sagittarius." When things get tough, Sagittarius gets going, and with their curiosity and open mind, they have no shortage of destinations, "said Ms. Fox.
Unfortunately, this also means leaving behind those who trusted and trusted them, only to start over, hoping that everything is at their feet and never, never boring.
How to cope: Try to look a step back from the stressful situation and analyze it objectively. Is there a story in it, a universal lesson? Sagittarius finally gets tired of starting over again and wants to be recognized for the wisdom and experience he has acquired, which means staying to gain credibility.
CAPRICORN: DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19
Capricorn maintains a rigid upper lip and always knows what is appropriate: they are in it in the long term, slowly and constantly creating their empire.
"Capricorn knows that looking at the part is important, being friends with the right people and joining the right clubs.
"Capricorn is concerned about what others think of them, and they can choose to do something they do not want to do simply because they believe others will want them to do so, sacrificing their own happiness to appear as the son, daughter, suitable husband, wife or employee, and use this as a measure of personal and professional success. "
How to cope: It is good to have human weaknesses and desires (and that others know). Meditation or any other activity that allows Capricorn to learn more about himself may make him less likely to see external validation or worry about appearing in a certain way to others.
"Aquarius is practically addicted to being the opposite and can even contradict himself or adopt a posture that would not normally be different" (stock image)
AQUARIUS: JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18
Aquarius of the future does not let the dust accumulate and has little patience for the conventional.
Aquarius is practically addicted to being contrary and can even contradict itself or adopt a posture that would not normally be different.
"It's too tempting to argue for the underdog, even if it's not worth fighting for the underdog," he explained.
Not everyone can distance themselves coldly from their otherwise passionate debate, leaving others confused and angry with Aquarius who just thinks it's a friendly conversation.
How to cope: An Aquarius with a primary focus on life is less likely to waste energy in empty rebellion. If Aquarius wants to soften, you can learn to focus this energy on the things that really matter, and not leave the hook every time it occurs.
PISCES: FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20
Gentle Pisces is spiritual, humanitarian and, sometimes, the emotional container of the zodiac.
Pisces finds compassion for both comfort and discomfort, for themselves and for others, as if external events reflect who they really are.
Their need to help and sympathize with others, however, can lead them to take too many stray cats (literally and figuratively) because they are afraid to say no to anyone.
"Pisces voluntarily suspends the belief of erring on the side of sympathy, allowing himself to be hurt and exploited by those who act as a victim," said Ms. Fox.
"Ignoring the pains of compassion makes them feel guilty, a feeling that others can manipulate for their own ends."
How to cope: Realize that nobody is thinking as much about your feelings as theirs and that if everyone else can have healthy limits, you can also and you are not responsible for the emotions of others, since nobody is responsible for yours . .
