Ever make a plan that was so impulsive that it not only shocked you, but you knew that you’d have to have a whole lot of nerve to execute those plans? We do that — we make plans that seem like a good idea at the time, until we realize that in order to do what we set out to do, we might end up risking our necks.
Would it be worth it? Who knows? “Probably” says the one who is complete with the idea of risk and reward. “Probably not” says the one who wimps out first. And for the wimpy zodiac signs in astrology, the latter is their route of choice. Why? Because people are afraid of the unknown. So much so, that they will allow that fear to keep them from experience newness and life itself.
Life is risk; it is about taking chances and doing things we’d never think we’d do. A full life is the life spent in experience; living in a closet full of fear is a dull non-existence. Yet, many opt for fear as they truly believe what they don’t know will kill them.
The idea of saying no to the idea of doing something great, big, or simply unknown is one that will really bring out the wimps. Present the idea of expansion and new horizons to a true wimp, and you’ll see what cowardice is really about.
Great endeavors take guts, and some of us are willing to go to great lengths to prove we have what it takes. And then, there’s the rest of us — the ones who just can’t move forward and always, always wimp out.
1. PISCES (February 19 – March 10)
You’re a wimp and you’re proud of it. As if being a wimp was a good thing. It’s not. Not if you plan on actually doing anything fun in this life. “It’s too scary!” is your mantra, and if you let some of that scary stuff into your brain, it gives you a great excuse to do what you really do best: cry.
Anything that takes you to that place where you have a chance to whine, moan, complain and back out of plans? You’re in. You win the Wimp’s Choice award, my friend.
2. TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
It’s funny because you’d think a strong, bullheaded sign like Taurus would be right up there with the nervy ones, but you, Taurus, are one helluva wimp when it comes to doing new things. You like to talk the talk, but walking the walk isn’t as safe, and oddly enough, you enjoy the concept of safety a little too much.
You’re all strut and no experience, Taurus. Go rampage a china shop, for God’s sake.
3. VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
One of the reasons you are known for your nonstop judgement sessions and criticisms of everyone and everything that walks is because you have nothing else to do but focus on people’s faults. You’d love to have the nerve to do something wild and wacky, but because you’re such an incredible “fraidy cat,” you need to deflect your own weakness and hone in on someone else.
“They’re the poopy head, not me!” You’re a full on certified wimp, and you’re always the first one to say “no.”
4. AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
Nobody’s sure what you actually do with your life, but we all know one thing for sure, Aquarius: It ain’t much. You’re a mouthful of plans and ideas, yet you never once even attempt to do any of the things you brag about.
You’re a fearful wimp who has let all of life pass you by. Your middle name is Regret, but when we call you, you’re nowhere to be found. Wimped out again, eh?
5. LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
One of the main reasons you can barely get yourself out of bed in the morning is because you’ve told so many lies to so many people that you can’t keep up with them anymore, which means someone or something out there might catch up with you.
Why bother having a real life when you can pretend you’re having one online? You’re the catfish we’ve all heard about, Libra; the con artist supreme who wimps out of real life but wears a fuzzy unicorn suit while playing D&D all day and night. Have fun, loser.
6. GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
All talk, no action. In fact, you’re not even all talk, you’re “some” talk, no action. Come to think of it, you’re more like “no” talk, no action. Go back to bed, Gemini. You’re a wimp. Let the big kids play without you, and maybe mommy will bring you breakfast in bed.
Then again, mommy’s probably out there experiencing life, maybe even working, like an adult does at times when they have to make enough money to support their loser Gemini children.
