During our life, we are faced with the expectations of those around us at every stage of our life. These expectations can be based on ideas and stereotypes surrounding our race, culture, religion or gender.
They can be based on our education, the career path we choose or the way we express ourselves through our personal style. Regardless of where these concepts come from, they have the ability to influence our thoughts and behaviors, helping to shape who we are.
For example, consider the young woman as she prepares to finish high school. If she grew up in a society where her expected role is based on family unity and her family’s responsibility, she may be influenced to prioritize her family ahead of her potential career goals.
However, the same young woman grew up in a different atmosphere where women are pushed to pursue their goals and succeed, she could turn to the best universities with the dream of breaking the glass ceiling.
When we consider stereotypes, we often turn to the larger and more obvious ones – those associated with our race or gender, but anything that orders or defines groups of people can be filled with society’s expectations and opinions. One area that is often overlooked is that of the zodiac signs.
However, if I say I’m a Taurus, don’t you automatically think I must be incredibly stubborn (even if that’s true)? While these expectations are often based on certain facts, they are not always 100% true. In many cases, reality doesn’t match the image you created.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20):
When you first meet a Gemini, they can seem shy and kind, only interested in making those around them smile.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22):
By living their life focused on facts and details, Virgo has a clear impression of what they believe to be “good” and “bad” in the world. It may seem overly critical and critical to those around them, but that’s not Virgo’s intention, they are just incredibly honest.
They don’t hide their thoughts and feelings, but they don’t want to hurt anyone.
Libra (September 23 – October 22):
Optimistic and friendly, Libra is everyone’s best friend. While most people may see them as the happiest people they have ever met, this happy exterior is nothing more than camouflage.
They wear a fake smile to avoid disturbing others, however, deep down, they are incredibly sad.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21):
There is no question that Scorpio is pretty cool, which is the expectation most have for these mysterious and passionate people.
While they are as beautiful as they look, there is one important fact that is overlooked. Contrary to popular belief, they are actually incredibly clumsy.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21):
Cool, calm and collected, Sagittarius can be a bit self-centered and obnoxious, paying attention only to their own interests and desires.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19):
By focusing their attention on hard and cold facts, Capricorn is never distracted by something as frivolous as emotion, right? While they may seem very serious, if you take the time to get to know a
Capricorn, you will discover a secret wild side buried deep inside.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18):
Often, the Aquarius will find themselves transitioning from friendship to friendship, striving to find this lasting companion who will always remain by their side.
To strangers they may seem like the common denominator and therefore the one at fault, however, the truth is that they simply attract the wrong people into their life, people who keep disappointing them.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20):
Sweet, romantic and idealistic, Pisces choose to see the world at its best, believing in what it could be rather than the reality before them.
While they can seem incredibly shy and kind if you disturb a Pisces, be careful! They will become a monster like you’ve never seen before.
