Capricorn

Day seventeen is about all about my zodiac sign! The question I have to answer is if my zodiac sign fits me or not and why, or course.
My birthday is on 4 January so I am a Capricorn. I actually do not know a lot about zodiac signs since it is not a common thing to talk about here in the Netherlands. That is why I went on a Google-diving-spree for you guys to find out what it means.
This is what the first hit told me:

Strengths: Responsible, disciplined, self-control, good managers

Weaknesses: Know-it-all, unforgiving, condescending, expecting the worst

Capricorn likes: Family, tradition, music, understated status, quality craftsmanship

Capricorn dislikes: Almost everything at some point

If you want to read the whole page then you can find the website I used over Here. Let’s see. So, the site basically says that I am responsible, a know-it-all, someone who loves music and art and that I dislike everything at some point. I don’t have the patience for most of the things, so I will end up hating them. I mean, they’re not entirely wrong at this point. I do dislike a lot of things which make me feel anxious. A little bit further on in the text it also says that I am someone who sets high bars for themselves, which is entirely true! The bars I set for myself are ridiculously high and I am sure I will never, ever meet them.

And this is what the second one told me:

Strengths

Responsible, good managers, disciplined, self-control, dark sense of humor.

Weaknesses

Know-it-all, unforgiving, condescending, expecting the worst.

Likes

Family, tradition, quality craftsmanship, understated status, music.

Dislikes

Almost everything at some point.

Charismatic marks

Medium build, can get in shape with effort but tends to be a bit soft.

Best environment

Positive work situation, urban environments with culture and style, anyplace to be in charge.

That part about getting in shape? True. I know that if I put in the work that I could be real fit and muscly, but I’m not. I enjoy dancing and yoga but that is basically it. I really would like to lose a little bit of weight but then I would have to use time I normally use for hanging out with friends and studying. I just value friends and studying over being ripped. The rest of the things mentioned are quite the same as the first website I found. If you want to explore the second website as well, you can find it over Here.

Over all, I think that half of what I found out about my zodiac sign fits me. I am a know-it-all when it comes to things I love and I am very, very ambitious. The first one also stated that Capricorns need time to warm up to people, especially in a relationship, and that it can take years for them to open up. Which is something I know is also true for me. I think that people think they know me, since I run this blog and all and I am pretty open about my mental health. But I do not think anyone KNOWS me simply because I have never ever shared my deepest, darkest thoughts with anyone. Not even my happiest things, or the things that really keep me going each day or the things that make me so happy I could cry. No, not even my mother and father know this side of me. Nobody does. Nobody knows my inside, I think. That has to do with the fact that I used to be, and still sometimes am, bashed for the expressing the things I feel. That also has to do with the fact that whenever I share the deepest feelings I have, people tell me to “man up” or “don’t be a sissy and get over it” or “stop overreacting”. Oh, and I almost forget the most painful one: “You are childish”. Even now, when I am typing this I can already feel the judgement and I can hear the voices of certain people in my head going: “Do not type that. That’s not true, you don’t feel that way. You’re being stupid and childish. Quit it.” But I do feel this way. Can you hear me? I feel this way. I feel this. This is me.

Just do not let anyone tell you what you should and should not feel or do. Everyone is different and everyone is allowed to be who they are. Even the people who are 21 and only wear dresses. Even the people who cry because of everything. Even the people who carry a little plushy in their backpack for comfort because they’re afraid of getting a panic attack. Even the people who hurt themselves. Even the people with eating disorders. Even the people who like to be alone. Even the people you do not understand. The people who like different art, music or clothing. The people who think differently. The insecure people. The hurt people. The underdogs of the world.

You hear me?
Everyone is perfect.
Everyone is allowed to exist.
Everyone.
Is.
Perfect.

If you ask me after all the googling if my zodiac sign fits me, I would say “meh”. I don’t know if it fits me. It did, however, provoke some wrinkles in my “thought puddle”. Would you say it fits me? Does your own zodiac sign fit you? Let me know down below!
Don’t forget to check you my Instagram account as well (which you can find in the “Social media” menu at the top of the page!) Thank you so much for reading and see you tomorrow!

Lots of Love,

  1. Some of these things I find to be true about the Capricorns in my life. I even talked about my thoughts on each zodiac on my blog and said similar traits for them. I’m a Pisces and I’ve always felt like the traits and descriptions fit me almost perfectly
