Everyone has toxic or bad habits that are very hard to break. Some bad habits are more difficult to break than others. However, going to bed each night at 3 am or eating an entire bag of chips each night are examples of toxic habits that can ruin your health and life in general.
These habits can also be detrimental to your social life. However, at the same time, if you have a toxic habit and you know you have it – but are self-conscious about it, you are not alone.
Remember that everyone has habits that are not good, even if they live a healthy lifestyle. Those people can still have some toxic habits otherwise. What is your toxic habit? Let’s find out based on your zodiac sign.
Aries – Using Profanity
Aries, you know you have a fiery nature, you are always on the go, and you have a lot of passion. However, sometimes your passion gets the best of you. You may think that the toxic habit you have is acting before you think or interrupting others because you are passionate about something you want to go after.
However, those are not the worst habits that you have. You tend to swear like a sailor, and even though everyone uses profanity, you tend to use it too much. Also, when you are upset or passionate about something, you tend to drop too many F-bombs, which may not bother some people. However, it can be a significant turn-off to others.
Taurus – Holding onto Grudges
Taurus, you are the one who needs stability, and you are also incredibly determined, which is also why you are known to be stubborn. However, your stubbornness may get in the way of being flexible or agreeing to try new things unless you are ready to do so.
However, it is not the most toxic trait that you have. You hold onto a lot of things, and grudges are something that you will keep. Everyone who has wronged you will never be forgiven because you remember each time it has happened. You will also hold onto a grudge until the end of time towards those people too. That is your toxic bad habit.
Gemini – Gossiping
Gemini, you are likable and versatile, and highly social. However, you know that people get upset with you when you fail to commit to something. They also get upset with you when you are indecisive. Those are not your worst habits.
Your worst habit is that you tend to gossip about others. Those who you gossip about will ultimately find out that you do and will never trust you again. You will gossip about people who you even like. You will want to be careful with what you say about others and who you speak to about them.
Cancer – Holding onto Clutter
Cancer, you are highly sensitive and caring, and you have a strong maternal side to you. However, you know that you can be too sensitive for your good. You realize that crying at the drop of a hat at anything is not something you can help, but you do it anyway, which is why you cannot help it. That is not your most toxic habit.
You tend to collect things because you find a sentimental meaning in everything that you keep. Therefore, before you know it, you have a lot of clutter in your home. When you have a lot of clutter, you struggle to organize yourself, making you emotional. It is a good idea to hire a home organizer to help you out sometimes.
Leo – Taking Things Too Personally
Leo, you are the type that needs to be in the spotlight, and you crave attention even though you are warm and generous. You also tend to overshare content online, and some of your posts can be TMI. Is that your toxic habit? Not the biggest one. Your main unhealthy obsession is that you take everything personally even though you shouldn’t.
For example, if someone says anything that may be sarcastic to you, you will take that personally even though you are fluent in sarcasm yourself. Also, if you are about to go to a party and someone shows up at the door not knowing that you are about to leave, you will accuse them of holding you up because they don’t want to see you happy.
That will leave that individual confused even though the only reason they are there is to sell something.
Virgo – Negative Self-Talk
Virgo, you are highly analytical, and cleanliness, organization, and health are essential to you. Unfortunately, you also tend to be critical of others because your standards are very high. That is a toxic habit, but the worst unhealthy habit you have is negative self-talk.
You expect perfection from others and yourself, mostly. You tolerate the imperfections of others a lot better than you accept your own. All that does is drive your confidence even down more and cause you to speak to yourself more in a negative way. You keep up with that vicious cycle that is not at all helpful to you.
Libra – People-Pleasing
Libra, you are highly social, and you are naturally charming. You want others to also like you. You know that you tend to struggle with making decisions, and you also do not like conflict.
You often get yourself into trouble because if you are upset about something and don’t take it up with the one who upset you, you blow up! However, that is not your most significant issue.
Your toxic habit is people-pleasing which does tie into that other issue regarding not facing conflict. You want people to like you to the point that you will sacrifice your wants and needs to make them happy. That does end up backfiring.
Scorpio – Having High Expectations
Scorpio, you know you are secretive and intense, but people like you because you are incredibly magnetic. However, the one thing you struggle with in addition to being overly secretive and obsessive is that you tend to put people high up on a pedestal, and when they fall off, you become disappointed.
That means your expectations are hurting you and hurting those you care about as they become resentful that you would do that to them. Therefore, your high expectations, among others, are your toxic habit, and the only way to solve that is to realize that no one is perfect.
Sagittarius – Speaking Before Thinking
Sagittarius, you are optimistic about the zodiac, and you are also adventurous and blunt. Unfortunately, not everyone appreciates the truth that you deliver. However, some do. You are naturally direct, so it is not a surprise that you would realize that your toxic habit is related to that aspect of yourself.
However, you also tend to say what you don’t mean and think before saying things. There is a way to be blunt without being hurtful, and that is where you get into trouble.
You can say something that offends those who don’t get offended quickly, and that is when you know you have spoken before thinking. The best thing to do is always to think before you speak.
Capricorn – Being Too Hard on Themselves
Capricorn, you are so ambitious, and your goals mean everything to you. However, you also tend to be very serious, and you may appear to be pessimistic even though you, in reality, realistically look at things even though it leans towards the glass half-empty.
However, your toxic trait is that you can be unfairly hard on yourself, like Virgo. You get angry with yourself if you do not complete a task or meet a goal. That only hurts your confidence and saps your energy. Remember that you are human, and there is only so much you can realistically do.
Aquarius – Spend Too Much Time Online
Aquarius, you are naturally a humanitarian and very progressive, so you have plenty of gifts. However, you like to march to your own drummer. You also have a love for technology and get tied into current events.
That means you tend to spend too much time online, whether gaming, scrolling on social media, or reading news stories. You end up wasting a lot of time online to the point that you don’t leave enough time to do productive things. Therefore, that is your toxic habit, and the best thing to do is to use a timer for the amount of time you spend on the internet.
Pisces – Procrastination
Pisces, you are very dreamy and artsy, and highly intuitive. You also agree to take on more than you can realistically handle. That is one of the reasons that you procrastinate. You say at first you will complete something, whether it is for someone else or yourself.
However, you never get around to it, and when someone asks you how you are doing with the task, you will embarrassedly admit that you haven’t quite gotten around to it yet. Procrastination is your toxic habit, and the best thing you can do is set a schedule for each task to complete so you stick to it.
Toxic Habit Based on Your Zodiac Sign
If you can relate to several of these toxic habits, then that means your sun, Moon and rising signs are behind them. However, you also have to remember that any problematic aspect in your natal chart can also be behind toxic habits, even those not listed in the article.
For example, you may find that you not only procrastinate a lot but also drink too much coffee or eat too much junk food. It is not easy getting rid of every toxic habit you have, and the ones to focus on are getting into the way of your life. If those toxic habits interfere with your life, you will want to focus on working on them.
