In Indian (Vedic) astrology, your zodiac sign determines your karmic path and the challenges you will face during your incarnation in this life. Here is a simple break down of how your zodiac sign can reveal your karma based on past life experiences. (Via)
ARIES Your challenge may be to put someone else first for a change as you are a fire sign who is very ambitious. Your challenges often have to do with your reputation. Problems with money can arise because of your impulsiveness. TAURUS You are a stubborn individual and it may be your challenge to admit for once that you are wrong. Loneliness is often a problem for this sign.
GEMINI You tend to escape reality and, as talented as you are, you may be presented with situations in this life that force you to be more grounded. Health problems could present themselves. Love triangles are common and fidelity could be another challenge for you.
CANCER You are very inward looking and shy. Your challenge may be to overcome depression or a “woe is me” attitude. Mental health and relationship problems are common.
LEO You are a very arrogant and ambitious individual and you may be presented with challenges in this life that force you to be a little less selfish and shallow. Financial problems are common with Lion type karma.
VIRGO You are a very controlling individual who finds it difficult to let go. You may be presented with situations in this life that compel you to be less rigid. You may often be dealing with situations where you are not credited for your work or you feel unloved.
LIBRA You are indecisive and you may be forced to make some tough decisions that are out of the ordinary to remedy your karma from other lives. You will learn not to blame others for your problem. The issue is to determine whether you are a martyr or a victim.
SCORPIO You can be obsessive and too concerned with sex. Your challenge may be to rise beyond the compulsive nature of your desires. You may also be tempted to dabble in the occult.
SAGITTARIUS You can be wayward and concerned only about your own agenda. Issues of commitment could be challenging in this life if you are born under this zodiac sign.
CAPRICORN You love money and acquiring possessions. One of your challenges may be realizing that money is not everything in this life. You might also be presented with issues that show you that “everything” does not have to be perfect for you to be loved.
AQUARIUS You love to be free and to while away the hours in your own mind. Unfortunately, this leads to procrastination. You may face challenges that are the consequences of not being mindful or paying attention to what is important in life.
PISCES The Pisces zodiac sign is always looking for the other in their life time. The challenge might be how to learn how to be alone or you might face issues of coherency and addiction.
“Her books are always paperback; her bindings always broken. There is forever a book in her bag, if not in her hand; and every book she has read carries evidence of her, if not in a broken binding, then in a dog-eared page marked for a memorable passage. This is her journal. She is quiet, she is liberal, she is loyal, she is loving; she may not always agree with what you say but she will defend to the death your right to say it.”—(via faithfulfaerie) (via out-of-my-dreams) (via crookedbeauty) (via oneshouldreadeverything) (via ilovereadingandwriting) (via bugseatbooks) (via booklover)

“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it?
It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it
opens your heart and it means that someone can get inside
you and mess you up. You build up these defenses,
you build this whole suit of armor, so that nothing can
hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any
other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life.
You give them a piece of you. They didn’t ask for it.
They do something dumb one day, like kiss you or
smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own any more.
Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out
and leaves you crying in the darkness, working its
way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination.
not just in the mind. It’s a soul hurt, a body hurt, a
real gets inside you and rips you apart pain. I hate love.”—
