Stop being in denial, accept your unflattering zodiac sign

Astrology is constantly labeled as a pile of garbage. I bet you $10 that people who bash astrology are probably just embarrassed that their zodiac sign has bad qualities and just can't admit it to themselves that they have those qualities. 

I'm a Sagittarius and I'd say my sign has quite the stellar profile. Some qualities my sign is described as are being blunt, impatient and speaking your mind. Wow, they all sound so wonderful — I don't know which one is my favorite!

Even though these are not exactly flattering, they are pretty true on certain occasions. I am constantly told I'm blunt, but I don't think that's a bad thing. Why sugarcoat things? That would be considered being fake, which is a bad quality itself. If I wasn't blunt anymore then I would just be fake — I clearly just can't win. If I think something is raunchy, I am not afraid to tell you, even if you are the one who is raunchy. I'd say this also goes under the category of speaking your mind. 

I can be a pretty patient person, but it depends on the situation. If I am waiting in line at the grocery store and stuck in the back of someone with 100 items, you better expect about 10 stink eyes though. 

Nicole Schaefer, a School of Arts and Sciences sophomore, thinks zodiac signs are on point.

"I think they're true because I'm an Aries and I'm very impulsive and straightforward," Schaefer said.

Right now I don't sound so hot, but I swear I'm not that bad.

Sagittarius people are also described as intellectual, philosophical, funny and large-hearted. Intellectual, eh? Catch me at Harvard or Yale in a few years. I enjoy posting weird photos on my Instagram that gets a lot of compliments — does that count as being funny? 

Some people consider astrology a big factor in their personality traits so much that they consider themselves two zodiac signs. 

Adriana Rodriguez, a School of Arts and Sciences sophomore, considers herself as a Taurus and Gemini since she exhibits traits of both. 

"So basically I born on the cusp of Taurus and Gemini, so I have both traits," Rodriguez said. 

Instead of living in denial, you guys just have to accept the fact that zodiac signs are pretty accurate. They may make you sound like a piece of trash, but at the end of the day you just have to accept reality. 

Just noting that Sagittarius people hate clingy people. If you're a five-stage clinger, that is ratchet I'm going to have to say hasta luego.
