Deep within, we are driven by our desires, influencing our actions, our decisions and our reactions throughout life. This is the inner motivation that encourages us to keep fighting, inspiring us to step out of our comfort zone and go for the gold.
However, it is important to recognize that desires come and go throughout our lives. What you don’t want as an adult probably differs incredibly from the wishes you had as a child, or even as a teenager.
In fact, you could say that your desires today are probably very different from your desires just a year ago! They change at every stage and season of our lives, helping us to orient ourselves and to focus in an otherwise overwhelming world.
We may find ourselves influenced by society, the people around us or the advertising that is so strategically stirred on our faces. Why do you think companies spend so much money on TV and Internet ads? If they can convince you that you want their product, that you NEED their product, you are much more likely to part with your hard-earned money.
However, under all the influences of society are your deepest inner desires. It is the needs and wants that form the basis of all that we are. They motivate us to get up in the morning and give us something to dream about when we crawl into bed at night.
Discover the hidden desires of each sign of the zodiac:
Aries (March 21 – April 19):
Pushed and determined, an Aries truly believes that he can accomplish anything if he only thinks about it. They refuse to allow others to hold them back and stand in their way, ready to give whatever it takes to make their dreams come true, leading others on their path to success.
Their desire? Lead others on their way, be recognized for their success.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20):
Building their life on a solid foundation, there is nothing more that a Taurus needs in his life than safety and security in all areas. This includes a strong and unwavering relationship, financial security, a secure career, and a reliable family life.
Their ideal life will occur when all of these pieces come together. The easiest way to calm a stubborn Taurus is to keep him safe.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20):
They are always looking for their next big adventure, finding motivation in life through new experiences and the opportunity to meet new people. If it were to end, their whole life would fall apart.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22):
Sensitive and compassionate Cancer can always be the first person to react to every situation he encounters in life, what he really wants is freedom. This includes not only financial freedom but also emotional freedom.
Of course, as many will point out, stereotypical Cancer is anything but free from their emotions, but the deep-seated desire for it is an ongoing journey that they are not ready to give up.
Leo (July 23 – August 22):
Inside their cold, hard exterior is a soft, caring teddy bear that just wants to feel appreciated by those around them for everything they do.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22):
In fact, there is nothing a Virgo desires more than love – the true, lasting and meaningful love that exists between two soul mates, committed to standing side by side through thickness and thinness.
Libra (September 23 – October 22):
Basically, all they want is the same feeling of balance and harmony in their own lives. They prefer to live a simple, conflict-free life than seek glory or success.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21):
While others may be hurt if someone tells them that they cannot do something, Scorpio sees it as a challenge, that they refuse to lose, and they will be very proud of the reaction of others when they will prove it.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21):
They are motivated by the need to change the world and leave their mark, constantly leaving their comfort zone to broaden their minds, stimulate their creativity and improve their capacity for innovation. They really just want to make the world a better place.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19):
The hard-working Capricorn is anxious to succeed, but not for the reasons you can assume. They are not concerned with their own wants and needs. Instead, they work hard because what they want most is to add value to their families.
Getting their family to recognize their efforts is the greatest gift we can give them.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18):
Arguably the most obvious of signs, there is nothing that an Aquarius desires more than their uniqueness. They hate the idea of merging with the crowd and will even abandon things like love and pleasure if they consider them to be too “commonplace”.
In fact, they sometimes become so blinded by their desire to stand out that they forget their real feelings and emotions, not to mention those of the people around them.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20):
While not all of these ideas are realistic (ok, fine, very few are realistic), there is nothing more desirable than for people to take their ideas seriously and help them make them happen.
