The 3 Pitfalls Each Zodiac Sign Should Avoid When Trying To Make A Good Impression

Andrew Zaeh for Bustle

Wouldn't life be so much easier if everyone you met immediately liked you? It would. Sadly, that's just not how life works. But according to astrologers, there are some things to be cognizant of when looking to make a good impression. All you really need to know is your zodiac sign.

As astrologer Amy Tripp, tells Bustle, your zodiac sign represents your ego, spirit and individuality. "It represents the filter through which these functions are expressed," she says. "Knowing a person’s Sun sign can help you have better relationships because you can see how a person is naturally built."

For instance, if you know which element they're attuned to (i.e. air, fire, earth, water), you can get an idea for how they operate. Fire signs like Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius tend to be fast, passionate go-getters. Earth signs like Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn, tend to be more grounded, slow moving, and practical. When you have two people of completely different elements, seeing eye-to-eye can be challenging. Sometimes making a lasting, positive impression on someone of a different zodiac sign may take a little more work. But that doesn't mean it's impossible.

Of course it's important to remember that just because your zodiac sign is more likely to make certain mistakes, does not mean you are guaranteed to experience these issues as well. Instead, your zodiac sign should be used as a guide to add another layer of understanding to your personality, and help you navigate situations with others if you so choose.

So according to Tripp and fellow astrologer Lisa Barretta, here are some of the pitfalls you might want to avoid if you want to make a good impression, based on your zodiac sign.
