How you can overcome difficulties depending on your star sign:
Astrology can help you find your weak spot and overcome the problems you’re faced with, based on your star sign. There are times in life when things do not go as well as you would like them to. Sometimes, you are faced with difficulties that intimidate or dishearten you, you find yourself trapped in situations you can see no way out of, you encounter obstacles that wear you down and test your stamina, perseverance and determination, and you have a hard time mustering up the strength to stand back on your feet and fight on. Depending on your star sign, you are likely to find certain situations discouraging or even daunting. You should not despair, though; no matter how difficult or impossible it may seem, you can always find a way to overcome the hurdles you are confronted with. All you have to do in order to deal with the adversities and challenges life has thrown at you is take a look at things from a different perspective; this will help you find the motivation you need to regain control of your life and to move forward. Weak spots vary from star sign to star sign. Depending on your star sign, there are different ways in which you can overcome your astrological weak spot in order to gain a more dynamic outlook on life!

You’ve put a lot of effort into something, but things haven’t panned out. And, as is so typical of Aries people, you’re fed up and about to give up. You are running out of patience (not that you had much of it to begin with). You need to take a step back and realise that being patient doesn’t mean being inactive (which gets on your nerves). It means being able to keep a proper outlook on things while putting in the work it takes to achieve what you set out to do. It means taking one step at a time while staying focused on your long-term goal. You can end up moving an entire mountain by removing one stone at a time.
And remember: Good things come to those who wait.
Sometimes, despite your wishes and plans, things don’t seem to go your way; you feel like life is out to get you. However, when you stop expecting things to happen in a specific way, you learn to appreciate them for what they are. Gifts do not always come in the form you expected, but that doesn’t make them any less valuable. Every challenge you’re faced with is a priceless source of experience that will help you better cope with similar situations in the future.
And remember: Think positive; there is a silver lining to everything.
Your mind races with ideas; you believe you can find a solution to all your problems. Maybe it’s time you stopped overthinking, though; when you go over the same things again and again in your head, you not only fail to find answers, but also end up feeling like you’ve reached a dead-end. The best thing you can do is use the intellectuality you are renowned for to get your thoughts under control, instead of letting them run wild; if they are negative, try to reverse them and to adopt a positive state of mind. Keep reminding yourself that things are going to be okay.
And remember: You are the master of your own mind.
Most people experience fear as a strong inhibitory force; the sensitive Cancer usually experiences it as a paralysing one. You may tend to avoid directly confronting your fear, pretending that it isn’t there. If that is indeed how you choose to deal with it, it turns into something abstract, dark and dreadful that you simply manage to keep buried until it inevitably sneaks up on you and sabotages you when you least expect it. By bringing it to the surface, you stand a greater chance of overcoming it with the aid of reason. Fear is as strong as your own mind allows it to be.
And remember: Feeling fear is human. But you cannot let it incapacitate you; move forward regardless.
There is always, even in the darkest of times, something in your life you can be grateful for – something that can put a smile on your face. It is neither naïve nor foolish to choose to feel good even when the going gets tough. Taking control of a situation is typical of Leos and a sign of strength and skilfulness. True grandeur (a concept you are partial to) resides in focusing on the things that can make you happy even when you have plenty of reasons to whine.
And remember: It’s not happiness that makes you grateful; it’s gratefulness that makes you happy.
Do you think you would be in a better place in your life if certain people hadn’t treated you the way they did? As a Virgo, chances are you have already analysed your problems and decided who’s to blame for them. However, when you blame your predicaments on others, you deny your own responsibility. And taking responsibility means accepting the fact that happiness lies in your own hands. The best thing you can do is take control of your life and stop looking for culprits outside yourself.
And remember: Be the hero of your life, not the victim.
It’s a good thing that there are people in your life whose opinion you can trust at difficult times and who can help you out of the dilemmas Libras so often find themselves entangled in. However, as you may already know, this overflow of information can sometimes confuse you and stifle your inner voice. Listen to your desires, use your intuition, and don’t do things for the sake of gaining the approval of others. Your life is yours to live, not theirs.
And remember: Trust yourself; no-one knows what is good for you better than you do.
For a Scorpio, having a sense of personal power is as vital as oxygen; the loss of this sense of power can feel like an even bigger tragedy than the actual event that caused it. However, you need to realise that, no matter how strong you may be, it is normal to go through tough times every once in a while. You are always the same person; you are able to find happiness, to prosper and to achieve greatness even when the going gets tough.
And remember: Life is not perfect. But there’s a gift in every day; learn to appreciate it.
Even a Sagittarius can be overwhelmed with pessimism. Sometimes, you really feel like nothing is working in your favour – like you’re the most troubled and tormented person on the face of the earth. Guess what, though: there is nothing unique about your troubles. Most people face, more or less, the same problems as you; they are perfectly able to sympathise with you. Even when you feel like someone close to you doesn’t understand you, there will always be someone out there who has been through similar struggles and is willing to stand by you.
And remember: You are never alone. There is always someone you can lean on.
Capricorns live to succeed, and they measure success by the admiration they see in other people’s eyes. When they do not feel admired, their self-esteem crumbles. Life, however, is not about gaining the recognition of the many. You weren’t born to live according to the expectations of others, and you cannot force others to live up to yours either. True success lies in happily living the life of your choosing.
And remember: Success is not in the eye of the beholder; it’s up to you to define it.
Aquarius people tend to inhabit a time and place far removed from the here and now. If you share this tendency, you need to realise that the only real time is the present. The future may or may not bring the things you fear or the things you have envisioned. The more you dream about a distant, imaginary Somedayland where everything is perfect, the more you miss out on the present. Life is to be lived here and now, as it really is, with its imperfections.
And remember: You cannot build a better future unless you live in the present moment.
We are all brought up with the idea that pain is to be avoided, but when it comes to the sentimental Pisces, avoiding pain can become a matter of survival. However, if you truly want to live, to fall in love, to be creative, you have to be willing to take the risk of getting hurt. And chances are it will happen more than once. But it is through unpleasant experiences and the feelings that go with them that you can learn the most about yourself. Pain can help you grow and endow you with wisdom, courage and strength.
And remember: Pain will show you how strong you can be when you have no choice but to be strong.
