If our life was an apartment flat, our past would be the closet where one’s skeletons are said to be found. Some of us manage to forget about it and go about pretending like it doesn’t exist. Some others acknowledge it and make peace with it so that if the closet were to open someday, they aren’t inconvenienced by it so much. And then there are some who just live in that closet in every spare minute and second they can find, refusing to move on.
Is it really surprising to find this sign here? A Cancer thrives on reassurance and intimacy. On good days, this makes them come off as cute and even eccentric. But when it comes to their past, the hard things in life or general burdens of the world, these very qualities make it tough for them to move on. Instead of dealing with their troubles, Cancers tend to magnify their problems and panic about it. They also find it hard to accept their mistakes or setbacks, making it even harder for them to digest what has come to pass and let it go.
You just have to take a deep breath and admit to yourself that there is nothing you can do about it. Just find a way to acknowledge it and only then you can move on.
Leos are best known for their stubbornness and their ability to command attention. Leos get disappointed when the attention shifts away from them, especially if the new person in focus is someone they do not like. They can take time to recover when this happens. Leos also don’t necessarily hold grudges. When it comes to fall-outs, this means that they will spend an indecent amount of time questioning themselves and looking for what they did wrong. This self-blaming makes them incapable of easily moving on from their past.
Some things in life just happen no matter what. It is not possible to pin down every outcome as a result of one of your actions. So, stop looking for faults in yourself. Just pick yourself up, brush the dirt off your shoulder and keep going.
Pisces come off as shy on the first glance. Like Leos, they too tend to constantly self-depreciate themselves. However, unlike Leos, they tend to do it more often and not just when things look down and bleak. Pisces thrive on assurance and support, which means that a lack of it can send them spiraling into a well of self-pity and, as a result, making it hard for them to move on from whatever it is that is holding them back.
You have to let go of your victimizing train of thought. If you keep relieving your tragedies, you will never be able to forget them. Just know that things that happened in the past will stay there if you only let them.
As stubborn as they are, it is no wonder that they are stubborn about letting go of their past too. You keep bringing up things of the past and probably end up creating more issues in the present due to this. You feel like people do not understand you when you do this, but it is necessary to understand that dwelling in the past doesn’t help you grow, it just holds you back while everything else passes you by.
It is good to learn from the past, but you have to learn to let it all go once you have.
Unlike its other Air counterparts, Aquarius ranks on this list because of the way they deal with their baggage. Sure they live their life like a sail full of the wind and when they are knocked down, they seem to pick themselves up quickly. However, Aquarius tends to deal with its past by shoving it in the back of their head, and eventually, never enabling themselves to deal with it to move on.
Instead of looking to move on too quickly, you have to take a moment to get your sense of closure from your troubles.
Scorpios are known for their boldness and their crudeness. They easily get jealous which then makes them obsessed with trying to catch up with the one they are jealous of. Scorpios are immensely possessive and can hold grudges like no other. Which all makes it immensely difficult for them to let go of things, past, grudges, almost everything. Especially if it has hurt them or the people they care about.
To move on, you have to learn to forgive and forget. Only once you do this, you will have room for self-improvement.
